Is Caral the Cradle of Humanity?

According to our method, Caral is much more ancient than anyone thought possible. Mainstream archaeology estimates the site to be at least 5,000 years old. That is even older than the official estimates for the age of the pyramids of Giza.

The area of Caral contains a large number of pyramid-like structures, which we have analyzed into a site-orientation pattern. According to our data of the Holistic Orientation-Based Dating Method, the age of Caral goes back to about 500,000 years, however, further research seems to indicate that Caral is even older – much older.


We Are Talking About the Foundations

Note that we are not talking about the top structures of the pyramids of Caral. We are solely speaking of the foundations of the original buildings. It appears that many of the structures were built one over another during the eons. Because the original orientation of the buildings remained basically the same in most cases, we were able to reconstruct the age of the oldest Caral structures. They are more than one hundred times older than archaeologists estimate them to be.

We can say with a probability of more than 99.999% that the oldest Caral ruins are at least 350,000 years old! We need to emphasize that our calculations are all done mathematically – without a single dig into the ground or even without making a single step on one of the pyramids. That appears not to be necessary to understand their true antiquity.

Enjoy watching!

  • Hi Mario,
    I visited Caral in 2018. I made a video with some correlation with Pleiades star cluster and Caral site architecture. Please take a look and let me know if there is a way to bridge your perspective on Caral’s age through extrapolation versus the back propagated calculation of Pleiades to 5000 years ago and Caral’s site architecture. I will rerun my experiment with Pleiades shape at 330000 to 740000 years and see if the site architecture still matches any point in that period.

      Hi Rajiv, that’s very well possible that these star systems correlate. However, what you have to bare in mind is that you ran only one cycle back in time, and that it is very well posiible that it is no one cycle but countless cycles back in time.
