The Egyptian Pyramid
In any list of strange and unusual artifacts one of the first things that comes to mind is, of
course, the Great Pyramid in Egypt. The Pyramid has been the source of endless theories, ideas,
rumors and speculation. Amazing powers have even been attributed to it.
Though many theories have been put forward as to how the pyramid was built, under scrutiny,
none presented so far have proved able to be adequate. It has been theorized to have been built to
serve as everything from a tomb, to an initiation chamber, to a cosmic beacon, to a giant water
pump and many other things besides. Endless books have been written on it and endless theories
argued. Indeed the entire Giza Valley Complex is quite remarkable and there are many mysteries
surrounding the entire Necropolis; its uses and construction.
The Complex is in fact, so remarkable, that an entire chapter is dedicated to it later in this
work. (See chapter 4 – A Valley of Kings).

Aztec Earplugs?
The Aztec Culture, as with many other past cultures of the Mesoamerican region had a love for
Obsidian. It was used mainly for objects of a sacrificial or ritualistic nature and is a reasonably
common find at many South American sites. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, Obsidian is a very
brittle, black volcanic glass and is quite difficult to carve or work with.
However, sometime during the past an ‘unknown Aztec craftsman’ is believed to have made
these wonderful and rather unusual little items (fig.6) which are thought to be earplugs. Yes that
right, earplugs, and we are asked to believe that they were made by using the typical Aztec tools
of the time, such as bamboo drills, stone chisels and fine sand as an abrasive agent.
This can only be seen as an incredibly unfathomable conclusion, because these items are
polished to a constant thickness of less than one millimeter throughout, they are perfectly circular,
completely symmetrical and are both exactly the same size.
Now just think about that for a moment and remember that we’re talking about earplugs here.
These things really are, very small, as I’m sure you will realize if you consider the size of an
actual ear canal, plus they have been made to an incredible degree of precision from obsidian.
Just notice the accuracy of the small flanges protruding from the ends of the items. It is very
difficult to imagine someone making these from brittle Obsidian by using primitive hand tools.


However the most fascinating and interesting thing about these artifacts is that under close
scrutiny the unmistakable signs of machining are actually quite clearly visible on the surfaces
making the idea that they were hand made even more difficult to deal with.
