The great wall of China
The great wall of China (translated from Chinese as “Long wall of 10,000 Li”) — the largest monument of architecture. The construction of the first wall began in the III century BC during the reign of Emperor Qin Shi Huang di (dynasty Qin), in the Warring States period (475-221 BC). Officially, the wall was intended to protect the state from attacks of the nomadic Xiongnu people. Participated in the construction fifth of the then population of the country, there are about a million people. The length of the wall with all the branches is 8851,8 km. The length of the wall from edge to edge — 2,500 kilometers. Width of the great wall is 5-8 meters and the height is 6.6 m (in some areas reaches a height of 10 meters).
During the reign of the Han dynasty (206 BC — 220 ad) Wall was extended to the West to Dunhuang. Also, the line was built watchtowers, goes into the desert, to protect the trade caravans of the nomads. Those sections of the great Wall . which have survived to our time, were built mainly during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). In this era of basic building materials were brick and stone blocks, making the design more robust. During the reign of the Ming Wall stretches from East to West from Shanhaiguan district Outpost on the shores of the Bohai Gulf of the Yellow sea to the Yumenguan gate at the junction of the modern provinces of Gansu and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous region.
During the three centuries of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911)the Great Wall is almost collapsed under the influence of time. Only a small section near Beijing — Badaling — maintained in order.
By the way, society for the study of the great Wall of China conducted an experiment using the same methods and techniques that were used over two thousand years ago, built a piece of the wall. During the construction enthusiasts measured the time required for the erection of one running meter to assess how much of the master of the Qin and Han could build a 4.5 thousand km of the wall.
The calculations showed that the construction of a brick-earthen wall height of six meters in the III-II centuries BC would have required no less than 8 million people. But at that time all of China’s population barely reached 5 million But in addition to the Walls built over 2000 km of channels and 6500 km of roads. Where did the extra millions of pairs of hands? For the erection of the entire wall was required or 10 million skilled workers, not slaves, or 50 years of continuous work, and not 10, as.
In addition, the legends claim: slaves, dying from hard work, bricked into the wall. Examining fragments of the Wall, the researchers never came across the remains. But along the wall – indeed, a huge number of human burials.
There is another view on the great Wall of China .
The great wall of China is the only man-made earthly objects, which is clearly visible from space. She goes on strictly defined lines. It was believed that she squirms and stretches in a straight due to topography or differences in surface density of soil. But if you look closely, you’ll find that even on flat areas it meanders. So the natural noise of nothing, and there is another practical sense.
The overlay on the wall map of the known geographical grid of Parallels and meridians shows – it’s almost exactly the same as the thirtieth parallel.
Recent calculations have restored the position of the 30th parallel of 2200 years ago and the approximate configuration of the continent. Now in those days the wall was going along parallel. If we move farther from the wall, along the 30th parallel, and you run into first on the Egyptian pyramids. and then… on the Bermuda triangle. Not a weird coincidence? But that’s not all! Adjusted for constant seismic movement of the earth’s firmament we upremsya into yet another mystery. All three certaintely of object equidistant from each other! 30th parallel North latitude, it seems, was much more important. Along it were built a sacred city of ancient times, from Tibet to Egypt, and on it – on the Central plain of the Sinai Peninsula – located facilities, which researchers believe an ancient spaceport.
In Beijing Radiophysics laboratory are studying the effect of large masses on the propagation of radio waves in outer space. One of the layouts – a long winding snake, which immediately guessed the main architectural masterpiece of China.
– Electric capacity of the giant structures so large, says Professor Yang Jiabao, that during the rotation of the Earth around the axis of the geomagnetic field makes it vibrate. And a signal is distributed in the intergalactic depths. Our model suggests that such a super-massive structures like the great pyramids of Egypt and the Great wall of China . could be built specifically for intergalactic communication.
