Lost Ancient Technology for Boosting Progress and Natality?

By Boris Loza, PhD

Ancient capitals of the most powerful and stable states in the North Caucasus region of Russia arose and existed around 44 degrees east longitude. Such well-known states as Assyria (15th century BC), Urartu (8th century BC), Iberia (4th century BC), Armenia (4th century BC), the Kingdom of Bosporus (5th century BC), Caucasian Albania (4th century BC) and several others. In Russia this is also the place of most tectonic activity and this is where we find both the largest concentration of megalithic structures, called dolmens.

The Caucasus dolmens are different from what is normally called a dolmen in other countries. However, they are called dolmens in Russia.

The dolmens of the Caucasus range from the Taman Peninsula to the Colchis Lowlands, a distance of about 480 km long (about 300 miles) and from 30 to 75 km wide (about 19 to 47 miles). Typically, a stand-alone dolmen consists of six sandstone blocks that are fit together (except dolmens that are rock-hewn). One plate is at the base, four blocks are around the base, and one block is on the top. The cover plate could weigh between 15 and 30 metric tons1, and other blocks could weigh between tree and eight metric tons2. The average size of North Caucuses dolmens is 3 m (9.84 ft.) long, 2 m (6.56 ft.) wide, and 2 m (6.56 ft.) high. The size of the entrance hole (diameter of the circle) is usually 40 cm (1.3 ft.) 3. The holes at the front could be closed with a phallic-shaped stone plug weighing up to 150 kg (330.7 lbs.)4.

The North Caucasus (the Abkhazia, Krasnodar, and Stavropol territories of Russia) is known to have about 2,300 dolmens, of which only 20 percent have survived in their original state. To date, archaeologists have excavated about 160 of these dolmens. Some researchers estimate that the original number of dolmens could have been as high as 30,0005.

The dolmens usually stand in groups along river basins. Orientation of the dolmens in the terrain is different, but as a rule the orientation fits into the arc of the sunrise and sunset, as well as the culmination of heavenly bodies. Radiocarbon analysis shows that the North Caucasian dolmens were built between 2700 and 1400 BC, making them 3,400 to 4,700 years old. Nobody knows today who built the dolmens, or how, when, and for what purpose. Archaeological finds from the dolmens and individual settlements allow us to speak about the high culture of their builders.

Caucasus dolmens are made of sandstone with a high volume of quartz. Quartz (SiO2) is a mineral with interesting characteristics. In particular, the piezoelectric ability to generate electric current under effects of mechanical deformation (compression or stretching) and to maintain a constant frequency oscillation (frequency stabilization). This characteristic is used in radio engineering. Under the influence of electricity, the quartz crystals generate ultrasound (a reverse piezoelectric effect). It was also established that under mechanical deformations, quartz is capable of generating radio waves.

Territory in the Russian Federation is located in seismically active regions and is generally characterized by moderate seismicity. The exception is the region of the Northern Caucasus, which is characterized by the highest seismicity in the European part of Russia. Searching for the reason why no dolmens exist in the coastal area,  archaeologists N. Kondryakov found that all dolmens stand in places of tectonic disturbances6.

In 1988, Soviet scientist Rostislav Furdui hypothesized that, based on the properties of dolmens, they could be complex technical devices, namely generators of acoustic, and possibly electromagnetic, oscillations. He considered dolmens as large acoustic cavities and decided to find out which resonant frequencies they were tuned to. Furdui treated them as Helmholtz resonators. Helmholtz resonance is a phenomenon in the resonance of air in a cavity, an example of which is the hum of an empty bottle from a stream of air directed perpendicular to its neck. The resonant frequency of the acoustic cavity depends on its maximum perimeter, which in the dolmen chamber is its perimeter at the bottom. It turned out that among more than two thousand dolmens there are only three types of predominate geometry. Most often (statistically most reliably) there are dolmens whose chamber perimeter is 720 cm (283.4 in.). The resonant frequencies of such chambers are respectively equal to 23, 16, and 35 Hz. In other words, if energy were supplied to these dolmens (resonators) in some way, then they would make a sound precisely at such frequencies7.

Furdui argued that periodic compression and stretching of massive sandstone slabs, from which the dolmen was built, led to deformations of the myriad grains of quartz, which are part of the dolmen stone. Grains of quartz in sedimentary rock, including sandstone, are properly oriented for generating ultrasound due to the piezoelectric effect. That is why, apparently, megaliths, in order to obtain the necessary power for ultrasonic flow, required a minimum mass of stone, and is why one dolmen composed of five to six blocks together could weigh between 15 and 35 metric tons.

The deformation of the dolmen’s stone blocks was caused by the tidal action of the moon and the sun. Tidal waves due to the attraction of the moon lead to vertical movements, not only in ocean water but also in the layers of the earth’s crust. Thus, at Moscow’s latitude, the daily fluctuation of the earth’s crust due to tidal influence is about 30 cm (11.8 in.).

Furdui proposed that dolmens not only generated ultrasound but also radiated it in the form of a beam (searchlight effect), as evidenced by the structural features of dolmens. The dolmen chamber is a bell that widens from the back wall to the front. The typical dolmen had to generate a beam of ultrasonic vibrations, modulated by a sound frequency of 23 Hz, in the direction of the dolmen entrance. The geometry of the round dolmen entrance played an important role, along with the angle of inclination of the dolmen walls. Usually the entrance hole is a form of a truncated cone, tapering from the front wall of the plate to the back, and thus representing a kind of a “shout.” Perhaps the geometry of this speaker played a specific role in focusing the sound stream the dolmen generated.

There is also information that low-frequency oscillations (13–25 Hz) leads to resonant oscillations of various human internal organs8. The resonance frequencies of most of the Northern Caucasian dolmens were close to these values.

By the end of the 20th century, Russian scientists had accumulated a large body of data on the neurophysiological effects of the electromagnetic field, prolonged nonionizing radiation, oscillations, and other anomalies of the geomagnetic field on brain biochemistry, the central nervous system, behavioral responses, suggestibility levels, and purposeful mental activity. Thus, for example, mental illnesses in the area of ​​the Kursk magnetic anomaly are 120 to 160 percent higher than in regions where EMF anomalies are absent; rates of hypertension and rheumatism were also higher.

Russian scientist A. Dubrov studied the influence of EMF on human organisms and showed that EMF affects the physiology of the female body, such as the course of the menstrual cycle, labor activity, and toxicosis of pregnancy. Some authors also believe that geomagnetic field (GMF) activity also affects the onset of menstruation in women and the course of labor. It turns out that the rhythm of both the beginning and the end of labor depends on the daily rhythm of the GMF. A number of cases noted that the frequency of the GMF oscillations coincided with brain rhythms and the frequency of smooth muscle vibrations. At the same time, there is a direct correlation between the frequency of births and the strength of the GMF, which is most noticeable on the 2nd, 9th, and 13th days after a disturbance in the earth’s magnetic field9.

Several researchers, among them Alexandr Fedorov, argue about the influence of unknown geological factors, such as geological faults, seismicity, geomagnetic fields, and solar activity, on various types of human activity. In his work “The Influence of Geotectonics on the Activity of the Caucasus Population,” he states that people living in such areas are affected by some unknown factor, and that social phenomena are largely determined by any geological activity10.

A significant number of studies have demonstrated that seismicity affects the activity of the population in the respective regions. Fedorov points out that all areas of increased dolmen concentration are located in major lineament zones—in the Taman-Absheron mega-lineament zone and in the Sochi-Stavropol lineament zone. All dolmens are located along local faults at the nodes where these faults intersect, and all cultures after the “dolmen culture” developed around these areas of dolmen concentration. The point is that ancient megalith builders put their monuments in these areas of intensive geological activity.

The emergence of these cultures, and the most important religious and political centers belonging to these cultures, appeared to have occurred under the influence of an unknown geological factor, according to Feodorov, with high seismicity leading to certain changes in thinking and perception. Presumably, these same factors can explain a number of the mental effects observed in and around the dolmens.

I think that this “unknown factor” is the influence of the megaliths, in this case the dolmens. Dolmens amplify energy that emanates from tectonic plates that move due to the tidal actions of the moon and the sun, along with frequent small earthquakes that shake the quartz-enriched dolmen blocks.

Scientists such as G. Chernyavsky and B. Skrebushevsky have noticed the following anomalies, which are among the most important dynamic precursors of earthquakes in the area of the dolmens:

  • Increase in the low-frequency radiation flux
  • Increase in microwaves (super high-frequency radiation, or SHF radiation) and extremely high frequency (EHF) radiation
  • Abnormal changes in the polarization of the electromagnetic field (EMF) of the earth’s rising radiation
  • Anomalies in the atmospheric electric field above the earthquake source as well as in the magnetically conjugate regions of the ionosphere (which has recently been proposed for predicting earthquakes)11

Based on a large body of data, Fedorov showed that cultures that formed in this area were known for the higher political, military, artistic, social, scientific, and risk-taking abilities required for establishing a strong civilization with continued progress. He concluded that increased seismicity and the influence of tectonic activity caused by unknown geological factors led to certain changes in the mental state of the population in the regions and contributed to the formation of an appropriate system of values ​​and culture in general—both behavioral and socio-political—ensuring the survival of the human community in these conditions. The main element of this type of culture is strength—both in the proper sense of the word (violence) and in the force of customs (prohibitions), traditions, and laws (coercion)12.

Fedorov showed that the influence of this unknown factor has been significant, even in recent times. For example, a higher population in Inner Dagestan, in the Chechen Republic, in the 18th century was noted after part of the population migrated to Transcaucasia; military activity also increased. In the 19th century, Dagestan was one of the most overcrowded regions of Russia. A similar sharp increase in population in the 18th century was noted in Chechnya during the beginning of organized military forays. At present, Ingushetia leads Russia in terms of population growth. All these republics are located in the region of the highest tectonic activities.

Apparently, population growth is related to the effect of an unknown geological factor on biological objects, that is, on humans. Perhaps such an impact caused an extraordinary increase in the population in the Altai region of Mongolia, from which crowds of conquerors came. What if dolmens were built to boost human reproductivity in the North Caucasus area? What if the ancients knew some completely forgotten natural laws that contributed to this effect?

Fedorov also noted the area’s negative effect. In modern times the fault zones (lineaments) displayed an increase in morbidity, mortality, accident rate, and tendency toward violence. Maybe this is because the dolmens, after a long time of neglect and lack of maintenance, are now out of tune?

Even now, when approaching some of the dolmens, one can feel a strong wave action that can cause a headache and weakness. Russian scientist Evgenia Volkova and her husband describe their family’s impressions from regular trips to these ancient megaliths. They were with a group of adults and children of varying sex, age, profession, and residence. They describe a significant difference in the behavior “in the conditions of the dolmens” between children and adults. Virtually all the adults who came to the dolmens for the first time (with a small but significant exception) had an emotional outburst (and in women, some breakdowns). However, children experienced a creative upsurge.

Volkova noticed a difference in behavior during the stay with the dolmens: the children experienced “ups and downs” of perception, or periodic changes of openness and closeness; adults, in general “worked themselves up” emotionally and were unable to notice, evaluate, and take control of their condition. She made these conclusions:

  • Deep features of the personality appear that are mostly hidden in everyday life.
  • Behavior of people among the dolmens inevitably affects the quality of events that occur to them.
  • Person’s habitual way of life, well-being, social relations, and eventually world view changes, sometimes in contrast to their immediate desires13.

I think, that the dolmens’ ability to act as energy amplifiers was used by shamans (let’s call them “operators”). An operator may simply be in the inner chamber when the dolmen starts vibrating due to natural triggers, such as the tidal actions of the moon and sun. Operators could simply embed their thoughts (or even some kind of spell casting) into the dolmen’s energy, thereby broadcasting their thoughts to the local population over a long distance with great power.

Imagine these thousands of dolmens tuned up to one specific thought and working together in unison. What mighty effect could this have produced? There could have been other applications of such energy other than boosting progress and increasing births.

Whatever the reason ancient builders had for erecting the dolmens, they obviously invested a lot of energy and ingenuity in their construction. Therefore, dolmens must have been very important to our ancestors. This specific location also has a rich history of advanced civilizations. Whether this is a coincidence or not is yet to be determined.
