LUIS TEIA is 35 and the author of the book " X3+Y3=Z3: The Proof " - a book that presents the mathematical and geometrical proof of the Pythagoras' theorem in 3D. He lives in Berlin and is a passionate scientist, mathematician, writer and free-thinker with various journal articles published in different topics, such as aerodynamics and vibration theory. His latest publication is entitled "Pythagoras triples explained via central squares" with the Australian Senior Mathematics Journal in 2015. He holds a PhD in Aerospace Engineering, and worked for high profile companies such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce. Through determination and ingenuity, he achieved 9 international patents, one of which will be flying in the two next Rolls-Royce jet engines to power business aircraft. He trains martial arts, and believes in the power of meditation.

Book Description

This book presents the geometrical and mathematical proof of X3+Y3=Z3, or the Pythagoras' theorem in three dimensions. Very much like today, the Old Babylonians (20th to 16th centuries BC) had the need to understand and use what is now called the Pythagoras’ theorem X2+Y2=Z2. They applied it in very practical problems such as to determine how the height of a cane lean against a wall changes with its inclination. This sounds trivial, but it was one of the most important problems studied at the time. As human beings we share the same nature as the Old Babylonians to solve problems to live and evolve. The problems nowadays are more exotic and elaborated than a cane against a wall, but they share the same legacy. Right-angles are everywhere, whether it is a building, a table, a graph with axes, or the atomic structure of a crystal. While these are our contemporary challenges, we, like the Babylonians, strive to deepen our understanding of the Pythagoras’ theorem, and on the various triples that generate these useful right-angles for our everyday practical applications. The Pythagoras’ theorem has greatly helped humankind to evolve. It is universally applicable, but still it is exclusively binding to two dimensions. Since we live in a three dimensional world, the awareness of this gap in knowledge begs the question - How does the Pythagoras’ theorem looks like in three dimensions (i.e., X3+Y3=Z3)?

Few of the modern visitors to Teotihuacan are aware of the vast and mysterious underworld of caves and man-made tunnels that extends under much of the ancient site and for miles around. The existence of these tunnels has been known for centuries, but not even the most recent research has been able to solve the mystery of their origin and purpose. Very much like at Giza, in Egypt, these tunnels are rumored to connect all the main pyramids by means of underground passageways, and perhaps even lead to the records of a lost civilization.

Human Origins

God the Father (represented by an old patriarch with white hair) by Cima da Conegliano, c. 1515
The question of whether a god exists is heating up in the 21st century. According to a Pew survey, the percent of Americans having no religious affiliation reached 23 percent in 2014. Among such “nones,” 33 percent said that they do not believe in God – an 11 percent increase since only 2007.

Ancient Technology

The Antikythera Mechanism, National Archaeological Museum, Athens, Greece
Every time ancient Greece is mentioned most people automatically think of democracy, the Olympic Games, mythology and philosophy. It seems that not many are aware of how advanced the ancient Greeks were on a technological level as well and the Antikythera Mechanism, known as the world’s first analog computer, is the brightest example of all.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
