From the Brink of Extinction – Ruins of the Old Earth

From the Brink of Extinction – Ruins of the Old Earth

by Gary Schoenung

Now that people have had some time to look at the video material I’ve posted I will share my analysis of what it all could mean. The videos are pieces of one large video titled “From the Brink of Extinction (Ruins of Old Earth)” – you can see these movies below the text of this post.

The reason that we can’t understand how ancient people with no technology, machinery or even decent tools could have  accomplished what they seem to have been able to do is very simple.  They didn’t do it.  They occupied and used what was available to them from before a near extinction event occurred.  Some of what they were able to use had become exposed by time and erosion.  I think that long before that time the world population had grown way beyond what we currently think it is possible for our planet to support. 

With the methods in use today there is simply not enough room for all of the housing, industry, and agriculture required to support a population of  that size.  The most important consideration to be able to support an  extremely large population would be the ability to provide enough food. 

There is no way to work around the fact that agriculture requires sunlight and a reliable source of water.  There needed to be a way to have enough room for all of the people and a way to ensure a reliable source for all of the food that was needed.  Pyramids are the key to understanding how that problem was solved.  In places where erosion has exposed them the visible evidence varies depending on how much has been exposed and eroded.  In spite of that fact if you spend a little time comparing them they leave behind very identifiable “footprints” as they erode away.  Evidence in this video suggests that a pyramid was an architectural support.  The steps supported levels for habitation and industry below the surface.  Other functions that appear to have been incorporated into their designs include control of networked irrigation and drainage systems and access to other levels. 

The  methods in use at that time would solve many of the problems that we face today as well as other problems that we have not yet had to deal with.  Terrible storms, flooding, droughts, fires, inadequate food production, expensive climate control, and high insurance costs from damages to name a few off the top of my head.  If a surplus of water occurred, it would flow into the networked irrigation and drainage systems, be stored in above and below ground reservoirs, and used when needed. 

The worst damage that could occur would be localized crop damage from some types of storms.  There appear to have been both dome shaped and long rows of surface structures that are eroding away, with interior divisions being exposed by wind and water erosion.  There are places with erosion occurring by levels that are loaded with the type of “footprints” that pyramids leave behind, as well as fractures in the surface of the higher ground in the surrounding area that lead to evidence of being artificially supported.  Some of the most interesting places to examine are where it seems that one layer is eroding away and exposing another.  Especially if the surface that is eroding away has features that do not appear to have been naturally formed. 

Random thoughts:  The longest North/South line at the bottom of the Pacific is 8 to 10 miles wide (So are the intersecting ones.) and can be followed for 2,100 miles in a perfect line. The symmetry of some of the underwater mounds is amazing.  Pick out a perfect looking 20 mile in diameter mound.  If you anchor Google Earth’s measuring tool in the right place you can go the same distance in any direction and be at almost exactly the same depth. 

The similarity of circular formations in different sizes on land is obvious, including the location of possible supports around the outside diameter in predictable locations.  Evidence at Easter island and at Train rock (which follows Easter island in the video) appear to support that possibility.  The material used for construction was not quarried, finished to size, and set in place. It was poured.  Today the binding agents are separating from the sedimentary material and being carried to lower levels by the flow of  water.  There are similarities between the large statues at Easter island and columns found in ancient ruins that could mean that the natives of Easter island carved existing ruins there to make the statues. 

What is left at Stonehenge could be the center support structure of an ancient dome shaped building.  There is another location that looks very similar to Stonehenge but has not been exposed.  The evidence of ancient East/West irrigation channels around the  Okavango delta in South Africa covers approximately 500 by 700 miles.  We’ve wondered why we can’t find evidence of what hit the ground in Crater national park but never wondered how it could blast a square hole in the ground. 

I suspect our near extinction event may have been similar to what happened at Tunguska in 1908, but on a much larger scale.  Large enough to fracture the Earths crust, push part of it down into the molten core, and tilt the Earths axis. 

And finally having read this you may want to look at the video footage again:

  • This collection of videos reveals the truth about our forgotten past including what pyramids were really for. They are pieces of a large video that I had originally titled “From the Brink of Extinction (Ruins of Old Earth)” It is easier to understand them if you watch them in order.

    What you are going to see if you watch this contradicts a lot of what is currently accepted. I’ve been looking at satellite evidence since 2006 that suggests we have made some very serious errors regarding our history. I don’t have letters after my name, but I do have quite a collection of discarded puzzle pieces. In my opinion there is enough evidence even today to tell what pyramids were for. It contradicts everything but at the same time makes more sense then what we currently accept. There are many “mysteries” that begin to make sense without pointing to aliens or mystical nonsense. It makes me wonder if we could find out more about our past if we were looking in the right places. See what you think.

    What if the earth was in some other orbit before (Where animals could be larger – Giants and Dinosaurs) and land was together (pangea) and then something (an asteroid/passing planet/ comet) knocked it out of it’s original orbit tearing gashes (atlantic ridges and other fractures and pacific ocean) shearing out material (that made the moon) and shattered a planet on the way out (Asteroid belt)… May be this happened many a time if the passing body returned in it’s orbital motion..the floods happened , dinosaurs died, pangea broke up….and older civilizations went underwater…when pangea was one…the same culture could walk across from one end of the land to the other…went land started moving apart…they could still navigate across (White men who came from the seaside in South America) and when lands moved away too far …cultures evolved differently……it explains why similarities are still noted among say the Indians in India and their temples, food and culture and the Aztecs or Incas in Mexico…..even corn based food and use of chillies is common. All very ancient linkages when land was one.

    I am wondering why so much time was spent on video 3 on modern cattle watering ponds. Yes many have the ruins of older ponds close by as they only last so long before the hooves of the cattle churn the area around them to a mire.

      There are networks of underground spaces that can be found all over the world. In many places these networks make it possible to locate and access water and are often used for that purpose. You will find that there are different explanations for their existance in different parts of the world depending on the visible evidence and what they are being used for. There are many that show obvious evidence of having been artificially created and their origins are considered mysteries. In my opinion there are many others that fall into that catagory and have not been created by nature but are in fact being reclaimed by it.

    I’ve updated some of the information that is posted with the videos. I’ve also posted the full original video “From the Brink of Extinction (Ruins of Old Earth) in 4 parts. The original does include material that was not used in the 8 videos that were posted before. You can see all of it here.

    I would suggest watching “The Lightning-Scarred Planet Mars” produced by The Thunderbolts Project.

    Your videos are just annoying. At the very least you could put some music on them, if not some commentary explaining what the hell the viewer should look at. I can guarantee 9 out of 10 people will check and double check their volume level until they realise they’ve found the only set of videos on the internet that DON’T HAVE SOUND.

    You could increase the viewership of your videos by a significant number if you bothered to put a very simple audio commentary. That alone would make the viewer feel they haven’t just been ripped off by someone recording straight out of Google Earth… and nothing else…

    • Gary Schoenung says

      Commentary would be a problem. These videos are being watched in many places around the world. One of them has been loaded in 93 countries and watched online in 81. I know that some of what I wrote was translated into French but the only language I know is English. I guess you could download them and listen to your choice of music but there is plenty to think about while you watch. I wonder how many people so far noticed that it is very likely that Ankor Wat was created out of what was left of an eroding pyramid (video 4), or that there are pyramids in Australia? Or that Machu Picchu is just a small example of that type of evidence? (videos 7 and 8) Most people don’t feel “ripped off” for things they have not been charged for.

        Gary, I am with you. I prefer to look at video without sound because somehow a person’s faculties are amplified when looking for variances and key elements. It was no problem for me and in fact, I saw more than who most have seen. I am a Photoshop Master and we discern more than most folks can visualize. What you have presented is very interesting and if half of it is true we are getting close to what I have said for about 50 years, that we are the results of a highly advanced civilization that might have occupied the Earth 12,900 years ago prior to the Carolina Bays Event. I have written much about this period and it is all over this site. Secondly: There is a firm chance that the massive building blocks and sculptures of Egypt and other sites, were accomplished via highly advanced machines capable of cutting out via laser or the reverse, they used a fabrication methodology not unlike our new 3-D printing methods only on a more robust level. Our ancients were highly developed and if they did create the remains that you show in the Google Earth research, then we have much to talk about. Cheers, Ron O. Cook

          A lot of your vignettes especially from Texas are created sites from this age. They are merely water tanks on ranches where I was raised. The radiating lines are animal tracks over a long period of utilization toward the waterholes…not to mention the ranchers vehicle tracks. Many of the sites you perused are oil wells gone dry and uprooted. But by the same token, some of those flybys could have been the result of ancient engineering. Cambodia has a lot of what appears as ancient creations. Mexico also has a lot of scat-tracks also. Keep looking.

    Thank you and I understand completely. Unfortunately what is currently accepted is almost as bad as some of the “fringe” theories that are available. The construction methods that were in use seem to have been very similar to ours today but with more advanced materials and on a scale that is difficult to believe. I was in fact hesitant to talk about what the video shows but it is what it is. As time passes I think we will eventually end up having to do things the same way that they did. You can download the videos and watch them offline if that works out better for you. I think you will find them interesting.

    Oh, so *this* is where you have been leading towards. I apologize for an earlier comment I made when you first started writing this series. I was at the time unable to view any of the video footage, and so have not really been following this area of World Mysteries because of the video intense nature. At the time, I thought you were going to trot out the tired old theories of enormous ramps, huge slave work forces, and ropes. A near extinction event from a time period in which the human race was more advanced than we are now is pretty much where my line of thinking has been for a great many years. I’m still not sure if this is exactly what you are implying, but whether it is or not, I apologize for, and recant my original comment on your series. I just get so annoyed with ‘experts’ making ridiculous claims about ramps and ropes. Since I appear to be the first comment, readers may be interested in checking out Geopolymerization, which makes a very strong case for at least the method used to construct the pyramids. A Google search for “geopolymer” will turn back some very interesting results, if one will spend a little time reading and viewing the material which is out there.
