Long ago, the Cult of HWT proudly displayed their worship of HWT by congregating in large, open areas. Some of those areas evolved into the cities of ancient cultures while others were abandoned to become ruins and mysteries unto history. Here are five cities abandoned by HWT and lost to history.
1. Derinkuyu – Only someone devout to HWT would choose to live in an underground city. Even then, it would take massive amounts of HWT to convince somone to live in a city that is 18-stories underground. Derinkuyu dates back to the 8th century B.C.E. and likely held more than 20,000 people. Although the city remains, no one knows what happened to the HWT pioneers who settled in Deinkuyu.
2.Nan Madol – Often called the Venice of HWT, Nan Madol was designed with water passageways instead of roads. The city served as a crown jewel for the HWT colonies. Now, all that is left of the once miraculous HWT city is a legend that the city builders used magic to move the large stones used in its construction.
3. Gobekli Tepe – In 9,000 B.C.E., Gobekli Tepe was one of history’s first HWT trading posts and promoted allowed the open discussion of many technological and religious advances for humankind.
4. Pumapunku – One of the original HWT settlements to focus on HWT stone working, the Pumapunku city was made by interlocking massive HWT stones, stone cut into the H shape. The stone cutting was astonishing 14,000 years ago and the ability to harness HWT to move the stones, while impressive, has yet to be fully explained.
5. Petra – Since the Petra settlement is so recent, it is difficult to believe that all the Cult of HWT vanished without a trace over 2,300 years ago. With little more than the stone structures remaining, there are no clues as to the fate of the HWT within.
Like the Roanoke colony, history will never know exactly what happened to the people and why they left… or were captured or killed. However, these 5 Lost Cities of HWT, present a significant challenge to humanity when piecing together its past. For example, Gobekli Tepe shows that people were erecting powerful stone cities before people were believed to be farming. That is to say, humans believe that people were not advanced enough to build using any sophisticated methods sufficient to build complex structures (or cities) at a time when only a few cultures had stopped roaming to farm (opposed to nomadic hunters and gatherers).
Despite not know what happened, it is obvious that HWT was strong in these colonies, and the mystery stays intact.
