In Avesta it said that once there was a land where the mountain range stretches from west to east. This country has been a mild climate, abundant food, and locals believed that their homeland is the Big Dipper … There is reason to believe that it was the Arctic, which, according to many researchers, is the cradle of humanity.
The end of the Golden Age
The Golden Age was stopped abrupt climate change. In Avesta mentions that the river rose, and the snow began to sting like a bee white.
Ten months of the year have become very cold, and the heat was held just two months. Even the priests did not know in advance when the sun comes up … At the beginning of the XX century Tilak, son of a Brahmin, who had a European education, plunged into the study of the strange rite of worship for India zoryam.
Particularly interesting it seemed to him that people spent rituals dedicated to the sun, all 12 months. He wrote to his friend – the German philosopher Muller: This attitude to zoryam could emerge here in India, as sunrise and sunset are advancing quickly. There is no in the temperate zone. The only place where there might be such – the North Pole .
Thus, there is a high probability that the ancestors of Indo-Europeans came from the north, leaving the inhabited places of the strong cold snap. It seems that the descendants of the inhabitants of the Arctic spread across the whole of Eurasia. Evidence of this are the references to ancient authors, who say that newcomers Hyperboreans much they have been taught. That is, to a greater extent if at all we are their descendants…
The real discovery was the discovery of polar explorer Gakkel Ridge mighty, stretches across the Arctic from the New Siberian Islands to Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. A sensation in the scientific world was the fact that the ridge is found in the basin of the Arctic Ocean, to the opening of which was considered deep water basin. He was raised from the bottom of the Arctic basin, sometimes reaching a height of four kilometers.
There is evidence that a whole range, or part of it at one time rose above the ocean surface. An indication of this is the terrace width of 26 meters, which are formed by waves. Other symptom consider flat-topped mountain – a sure sign that they have experienced the effect of the marine element.
Samples of pebbles, gravel, boulders, gravel and sand from the Lomonosov Ridge scholars have carefully analyzed and rejected any possibility of these rocks to the ridge because of the drifting ice floes. All of them were formed in place, and are not guest performers from the mainland. This means that once the ridge located over the water. Some scientists believe that the mysterious Sannikov Land and other islands, which tells locals Yukagirs not found because the length of time they have towered above the sea level, and disappeared under the water recently.
When Arctida died?
Different researchers have different dates from the time of lowering the Lomonosov Ridge under the water. By dating of the last century, it could have happened 100,000 years ago. But there is another point of view according to which, Arctida died in the era of the reasonable person, possibly with the legendary Hyperboreans. It is possible that Arctida existed for a long time and disappeared recently, about 2500 years ago. According to the famous polar explorer Professor M. Ermolaeva, about three thousand years ago changed the hydrological regime in some seas of the Arctic Ocean that is associated with changes in the bottom relief.
The warm climate was established about eight thousand years ago, after the last Ice Age ended. But 2500 years ago it began a new cooling. Arctida at this time could serve as a bridge between Asia and America in the process of human settlement in the world. So, the president of the Geographical Society Academician Alexei Treshnikov believes that part of the Lomonosov Ridge might come to the surface 8-18 thousand years ago. According to him, in the area of the Lomonosov Ridge stretch some peaks can come close to the surface of the ocean or even rise above its level. This means that in the Arctic can be detected yet undiscovered island.
