Skull Maya by moppaa Skull Maya by moppaa
The skull was with me. Periodically I made itself felt, as in the night when stopped at one of the roadside motels. So the experiment was a success, I had a long time to retire and intently looking at the ancient crystal.

I sat in front of the skull, probably more than an hour, when suddenly his smoky surface has begun to drop, and what appeared afterwards, gradually acquired a definite shape. After that, it seemed to me that the skull was gone, and I, sitting on a cloud watching reaching the bottom of the big world.

...I saw the earth -- the whole continent, which plunged into the water. In three directions it moved living beings. One of the groups disappeared in the numerous caves, the other -- in holes dug in the ground. A smaller group hid in a strange kind of aircraft, and then ascended into heaven. Largest ship was in the form of cigars. Apparatus of a different type reminded plates, while others resembled giant dish with a turret at the top.

The most amazing spectacle were the inhabitants of this planet. Shape of their bodies constantly changing and the noises which they communicated with each other, were similar to the voices of whales and dolphins.
...I saw meadows, which were transformed into the hills. The desert became seas. Mountain immersed in water. The mass of the earth move, split and were drowned.

This happened four times, and each time as the retreat of ocean creatures settled in the land. Their bodies have increasingly acquired a human face. However, some remained in the water, look like fairy mermaids. Double-being are not out of the caves. The next time they appeared on the surface of the signals that set ships and flying people.

...The earth is divided into parts. Large groups of people went to the East, South and South-East. Here and there flared up in the giant battle between people, dressed in a long robe and togas, and some полулюдьми-полуживотными. Often, people and animals, like the lions and lizards flew in caves or in the water.

But the grandest and most mysterious spectacle was when the whole world seemed to turn, and задвигалась earth. Jungle and desert reversed.
And I learned Africa.

...It was the impression that I was looking at the Earth through a telescope. And at the same time participated in the event. Nobody can answer, where I was actually...
Meditation, as I learned later, continued 33 hours. Once again I decided to look into the skull of a few days. And again spent in its depth of about four hours, visiting the beautiful cities of the past. Or maybe the future?
I could not look into the unknown world. Skull Maya seemed grinned, showing me alone clouds..."
