Located in the Tamya oasis in Saudi Arabia is a megalithic rock called Al-Naslaa. This large rock is divided into two halves perfectly like laser cut and has mysterious drawings on the surface.
Not only that, but the two halves of the rock have stood firm for centuries, seeming to have their own way of balancing. Surely the imagination of many visitors will be spoiled when standing in front of this wonder.The two halves of the giant stone burial stand for centuries, Perhaps the first thing that people wonder when contemplating is how the rock can stand to this day when each half of it only stands on a small rock, acting as a support.
al naslaa rock
The size of each half of the rock is equivalent to a 2-storey building, while the “base” is only equivalent to a 1.6m bed, even smaller.
On the other hand, over thousands of years, the two halves of the rock have continued to stand in balance, unchanging, and maintain a constant distance between them.
It is speculated that the “base” of the two halves are placed on two other rocks, keeping them isolated from the ground, so that vibrations from the ground are suppressed, helping them to stand in balance thousands of years to the present day.
Controversy over the origin of the cut
What’s even more strange about admiring Al-Naslaa is that it seems to have been cut into two halves precisely and perfectly
Megalith of Al Naslaa
The perfect distance between the two halves of the rock makes one think that to cut it, the ancients must have used a device with a very advanced and precise technology.
Since its discovery, this sharp cut on the rock has not only attracted thousands of tourists every year, but also caused controversy among researchers.
Some claim that the rock was cut from a natural phenomenon and not by human hands. There have long been small vibrations in the ground beneath the rock, creating tiny cracks in its surface. Gradually, over the centuries, the cracks spread and suddenly split the rock in half right at the center.
But this hypothesis is not satisfactory in that: if it is a natural cut, it cannot be smooth, accurate to the millimeter and extend to tens of meters like that.
That raises the second hypothesis: there once was an extremely advanced civilization that existed around the area of the rock, which possessed a technology to cut rocks with precise machinery. A rock is an unfinished work that is being crafted for a certain purpose. Over time, that civilization was erased from the Earth, leaving only the now controversial rock.
What was the pyramid built for?
What artificial technology can be used to cut the rock?
Today, for stone cutting and stone processing, one can use tools such as dynamite, saw blade cutters, water jet cutters and laser cutters.
Using dynamite and saw blade cutters are two fairly traditional methods. However, explosives often make cuts not straight, while saw blade cutters cannot cut stone slabs as large as meters.
Waterjet cutting machines use a very high pressure and high speed water jet. Usually, these cutters are only used to cut rocks with a thickness of several tens of centimeters.
Laser cutters make it possible to cut most materials today because the laser beam is focused by a heating lens and creates a region of molten material, from which the cut is produced. However , because of the high cost, laser cutting machines are currently only used to engrave materials. No one has used it to cut materials that are meters thick.
So what technology is the Al-Naslaa rock cut with? To our current knowledge, the most viable artificial technology that can be used to cut it is laser technology. But the laser was only invented in 1953. And this cut has existed for thousands of years.
So if Al-Naslaa was cut using artificial technology, surely in the past, some prehistoric civilization possessed laser cutting technology or another advanced cutting technology in a very sophisticated and proficient way. . Is this likely to happen?
Archaeological results have shown that scattered in many parts of the world, large megalithic works have been discovered tens of thousands of years old with extremely high engineering and construction technology that even humans It is also difficult to do today. For example, the Saksaywaman rock site in Peru with its amazingly tight-fitting rocks, the Puma Punku and Tiwanaku rock site in Bolivia with its finely cut holes. Or, people have also discovered many works and artifacts with thousands of years old that show the very high level of ancient people on earth such as the library of stone relics in Peru or ancient aviation technology., etc… These prove that there existed prehistoric civilizations, possessing very high technology on earth. For some reason, these civilizations were destroyed over time.
Thus, the theory that Al-Naslaa was cut with the technology of a prehistoric civilization is not too far off.
Traces of the history of Al-Naslaa
Al-Naslaa was discovered by Charles Huver in 1883. Archaeological discoveries have shown that the area where the Al-Naslaa rock lies has traces of human habitation in the ancient period. Another special attraction is that on this huge rock, there are murals of people in modern shapes.
In 2010, Saudi Arabia’s National Heritage and Tourism Commission announced the discovery of another rock near Teima with a hieroglyphic inscription of Pharaoh Ramses III – one of the reigning kings who brought achievements. greatest for the ancient Egyptian civilization.
The researchers hypothesize that there is a vital trail connecting the Red Sea with Arabia and the Nile region, which is also the site of a prehistoric civilization that flourished and was destroyed . This supports the hypothesis that the development of technology in the ancient world was thousands of years ahead of modern humans.
The mystery of the Al-Naslaa rock is still one of the great mysteries of mankind. But if we really change the concept and acknowledge the existence, development and destruction of human civilizations through prehistoric times, will the story of Al-Naslaa no longer be the same? Another mystery?
