Chinese researchers find ancient alien cave on China-Tibet border
A group of Chinese researchers identified and explored an ancient cave so unusual that an extraterrestrial hypothesis was quickly taken into consideration.
The fascinating ruins were discovered in the remote wilderness area that makes up most of the intersection between China’s Qinghai Province and the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
Throughout history, humans have rarely settled in this hostile and inhospitable region.
Sometimes herds of migrants cross the mountainous regions to the north.
In the region there are no industrial factories, nor the remains of civilizations with advanced metal processing capabilities.
Despite this, atop a rocky ridge called Mount Baigong is a pyramid-shaped ruin with three triangular entrances.
Two of them have collapsed, but the rest lead to an artificially dug cave that penetrates the heart of the mountain.
Hundreds of ancient metal pipes, incorporated into the cave’s walls and floors, are arranged in what appears to have been a sophisticated network for unknown purposes and origins.
The rusty tubes range from the diameter of a toothpick to 1.5 meters in diameter and connect the cave to the nearby Toson Hu, a saltwater lake 300 feet away.
On the north shore of Lake Toson, erosion has exposed hundreds of these archaic canals.
This detail led researchers to believe that whoever built the pipes was using it as a drainage system or as a system for pumping salt water from the lake.
Baffled by the complexity of the pipeline network, the researchers took samples of strange metal tubes for analysis at the Beijing Institute of Geology.
After the analyzes, the researchers had their biggest surprise.
Using a process called thermoluminescence dating, scientists were able to analyze the crystal structure of the tubes and determined that they were subjected to extreme heat around 140-150,000 years ago.
In other words, the tubes had been melted long before humans started buffering in metallurgy.
An advanced civilization that built complex structures 145,000 years before us?
The only answer would be that these structures could be foreign.
The chemical analysis also revealed more bizarre details.
The tubes had been melted using a strange alloy composed of 92% common metals and minerals such as iron oxide, silicon dioxide, and calcium oxide, but also contained 8% unknown materials.
This intriguing aspect paved the way for the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
Unable to identify the exotic 8%, the researchers turned to the remaining constituents and found another baffling aspect: the tubes contained a specific percentage of silica from Mars.
The news fell like a bomb, the story quickly went viral, and people began to flirt on Mount Baigong to see the anomalous artifacts.
They also erected a monument with a satellite dish above, a direct reference to efforts to contact extraterrestrial civilizations.
As a result, the Chinese government closed the area and sent guards to the entrance to the cave.
This attitude is very suspicious, to say the least.
Skeptics say the Baigong pipes are nothing more than the roots of fossilized trees that have settled in the sediment, hardening over the years and ultimately becoming unusual structures that have undermined everyone.
If so, why should the authorities intervene and have the site monitored by the military?
Why do the tests confirm the opposite, that it is only foreign matter and not tree bark or roots?
This situation has led conspiracy theorists to believe that Mount Baigong was once visited by an advanced alien race, possibly originating from Mars.
For some reason, they built an artificial pyramid on top of the mountain, housing what appears to have been a laboratory .
This theory is intriguing for a number of reasons.
The entire area surrounding the mountain consists of large expanses of flat land that would have been an ideal landing site for large spacecraft.
The top of the mountain is a perfect vantage point that could be used to monitor landings and takeoffs.
Recently, mining explorations have shown that the area contains various mineral deposits.
Any industrious civilization, no matter how advanced, could see the utility of extracting and managing these resources.
To do this they would need some type of power source and this is where the purpose of the tubes might become evident.
Chinese scientists wondered why the pipes entered the salt water when another freshwater lake was even closer to the pyramid.
Why the need for water containing a higher percentage of sodium chloride?
Let’s look at some of our activities and maybe we can find an answer.
Modern chemistry and production use a process called electrolysis, which essentially requires an electric current to pass through a solution or molten substance. This sets off a chemical reaction that allows the materials to separate.
When water is electrolyzed, it breaks down into hydrogen and oxygen, but only works when salt water is used.
It should be noted that a mixture of liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen is commonly used as rocket fuel.
Whatever the truth behind this bewildering discovery, one thing is certain: It doesn’t seem to match any of our traditional textbooks.
