It will appear 'out

At this time - humanity will remove its consciousness from the 3D grid of and
spiral through the 'stargate' of higher light. That time is almost here. we

On the pampa, south of the Nazca Lines, archaeologists have now uncovered the
lost city of the line-builders, Cahuachi. It was built nearly two thousand years
ago and was mysteriously abandoned 500 years later. New discoveries at Cahuachi
are at last beginning to give us insight into the Nazca people and to unravel
the mystery of the Nasca Lines.
Cahuachi is emerging as a treasure trove of the Nazcan culture. As Orefici
and his team excavate, discoveries of paintings on preserved pottery, and the
ancient technique of weaving that the Nazca people developed, have given an
insight into how the lines may have been made, and what they might have been
used for, more than 1500 years ago.
Most exciting is the discovery of human remains. Stunningly preserved in the
dry soil of the Peruvian desert are the mummified bodies of the Nazcan people
Skulls from Ica, Peru
Originally believed to have been a military stronghold, Cahuachi is now
reckoned to be a place of ritual and ceremony, and Orefici's stunning new
evidence confirms this idea. Cahuachi is now revealed to have been abandoned
after a series of natural disasters destroyed the city. But before they left it,
the Nazcan people covered the city in the arid pampa sand where, until recently,
it has remained a barely visible mound in the desert.
Preserving the Nazca Lines
It is difficult to keep the Nazca Lines free from outside intervention. As
with all ancient ruins, such as Machu Piccu, weather by wind and rain, and human
tampering will take their toll on these ancient Lines.
In recent years the Nazca Lines have suffered gradual destruction, as tomb
raiders seeking pre-Inca artifacts scar the terrain with hundreds of burrows,
garbage, among other waste material. A boom in copper and gold mining -
including a mine built in 1997 a few feet from a 2,000-year-old, two-mile-long
trapezoid -- is defacing parts of the Nazca Lines with tracks from truck
Over the past decade, advertisers and political campaigns have carved huge
messages in the rock and sand between the ancient designs in this region 250
miles south of Lima.
In 1998, floods and mudslides from the El Nino weather pattern seriously
eroded several figures.
As electricity reaches the growing local population, utility companies are
running power cables over and around the site.
The damage to the Lines underscores Peru's desperate struggle to preserve its
national patrimony. Archaeologists say they are watching helplessly as the quest
for scholarship and conservation in a country viewed as the cradle of New World
civilization is losing out to commercial interests, bleak poverty and the
growing popularity of heritage sites as tourist attractions.
