The Pyramids at Teotihuacan: The Occult and Beyond
By Beldon Butterfield
To properly appreciate this extraordinary archaeological site and fathom some of its occult mysteries, you have to ask your guide the right questions. Even then, you are likely to get some evasive answers in the realm of legend and lore. One must keep in mind that the history of this place constantly changes as archaeologists make new discoveries. What we do know is that these people left no trace of who they were, where they came from, and what they meant to accomplish, with the exception of the extraordinary buildings they left behind. Archaeologists usually agree they disappeared around 450 AD, some 800 years before the Aztecs arrived in the Valley of Mexico around 1250.
When the Aztecs settled in the Valley of Mexico and first discovered this site with no name, they understood this was a place far beyond their understanding. They named it Teotihuacan in náhuatl: “The place where men became gods.”
Let’s take a look at some aspects of Teotihuacan culture that are difficult to explain. The three most important pyramids (Sun, Moon, and Quetzalcoatl, sometimes referred to as La Ciudadela) are perfectly aligned with Orion’s Belt in the Orion constellation, as are the Great Pyramids at Giza in Egypt (Menkaure, Khafre, and Cheops). Regarding timelines, the pyramids of both sites are more than 2,000 years apart. What is astonishing is that the bases of the Pyramid of the Sun and Cheops are nearly identical in length and width, despite both cultures employing different measurement systems. Then you have the floors of “mica,” no longer open to the public because of looting. The only place that produces this kind of mica is Brazil. Even more hidden are the marcadores (markers) found embedded in the ground around the Pyramid of the Sun and in La Ciudadela. Their significance is still being analyzed as some sort of astronomical map. Similar markers have been found as far south as Guatemala and in places like Chaco Canyon in the US state of New Mexico.
What also begs an explanation is the question of weapons made of green obsidian, discovered as far south as Colombia and north into the US state of Utah. Green obsidian is found only in the mines of Otumba, some forty-five kilometers from Teotihuacan. This suggests that people from all over this continent went there to trade for the finest weapons in Mesoamerica and beyond (green obsidian is known for its razor sharp edges). This theory is backed up by on-site human remains that do not pertain to the people of Teotihuacan. Unfortunately, this idea falls in the realm of supposition and does not negate the possibility that the Teotihuacans traveled throughout the American continent.
Then there is my own personal experience. I have serious problems walking, due to my age. I’m in need of two hip replacements and a knee replacement, and I suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which makes it hard to breathe. With the aid of hiking sticks I can manage around 1.5 km. In Teotihuacan (higher altitude than SMA) I walked over 4 km and felt just fine. After all, I’m living proof of “pyramid power,” the enhanced energy field created by pyramids in archeological sites around the world. Welcome to the occult and beyond.
