While vicious brush fires continue to tear across Australia, indigenous elders at the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape in Southeastern Australia celebrate an unexpected discovery caused by fire damage. The site is home to a sophisticated and extensive aqueduct system built over 6,600 years ago.
A Hopeful Discovery
After a series of bushfires scorched 7,000 hectares of the national park before being subdued, indigenous elders and park rangers were pleasantly surprised to discover previously hidden sections of the waterway system.

This video dives into and fully explores an alternate version of our own human history that connects a lot of dots that up until now, seemed as if random anomalies of the human race.
This is a story that derives from two primary sources. The first is the lost Sumerian Tablets, which were a collection of thousands upon thousands of clay tablets that were dug out of the ground in ancient biblical cities that were thought never to have existed. These tablets tell a remarkable story about our own history, who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going.
The second primary source of this story is a man named Drunvalo Melchizedek, who describes his experience meeting in the flesh a remarkable human has known most commonly as Thoth, or Hermes.
According to Thoth, he experienced this tale in person, and because of his level of consciousness, had been able to...
