PAKAL, THE MAYA ASTRONAUT:
A STUDY OF ANCIENT SPACE TRAVEL

by Charles William Johnson

PART: VIII


Observations

From the previous analysis, can one safely state that space travel possibly existed over 1,300 years ago ? Does this analysis suggest that humankind on this planet may have been visited once by other life forms from elsewhere in the Universe ? Were the maya people visited by those life forms, and possibly portrayed themselves as space travelers as well ?

One could easily forward the idea that the Pakal sculpture reflects an example of human imagination along the lines of a Leonardi Di Vinci, who conceived of mechanized flight before humankind was actually able to achieve it. The artist of the Pakal sculpture may simply have been equally imaginative as Di Vinci.

In any event, the analysis of the Pakal sculpture from the view- point of movement and mechanical engineering, offers a stunning image of similarity with our contemporary concept of space travel and the design of spacecraft. The analysis, however, suggests other images that were designed into the Pakal sculpture which will be the subject of subsequent essays in the Earth/matriX series.
