ancient theories

I guess it’s time to bring this back.

This illustration was drawn by Yana back in 2008:

And this is a panel from the latest chapter (ch126):

I’m not saying these are the same photo, but it’s good to keep in mind that Yana has had the idea of the “burnt family photo” since 2008 :D

Laboratory tests in Peru have found that both of the unusual body parts are comprised of both skin and bone. After x-rays of the skull, they concluded that they could not have come from a human being. They came to the same conclusion about the unusual hand. The x-rays clearly show that the fingers inside the hand are comprised of six bones which mean that it cannot have come from a human being as humans only have three bones in each finger.

Now that most people have been assured that the artifacts are genuine there has been a great deal of speculation about where they could have come from. Some people have suggested that the skull and the hand could have been left on Earth by an alien visitor to the planet. Others have suggested that the artifact might come from a form of ancient humanoid. This theory has a certain amount of credibility as the remains of extinct forms of ancient humanoids have been discovered in Peru before. It is hoped that the mystery will be solved in the early part of 2017 when the two body parts will be sent to a specialist laboratory in the United States for radiocarbon and DNA testing.

UFOs in old artwork- Many theories exist as to why a lot of old canvases appear to depict spaceships in the background. Some people think that it was the artist’s creative attempt to decorate an accidental splash of paint, or they were simply using their imagination to create something unusual that would grab the public’s attention. However a more disturbing theory is that these artists actually saw UFOs, and were painting what they witnessed. The paintings above are just some of the ones that show clear evidence that alien life may have existed centuries ago, if not now. They are certainly hard to explain, and the true identity of these sci-fi looking additions remains a mystery.

Here is actually the BIGGEST Easter Egg in The Last Jedi Trailer that no one is talking about. Those aren’t stars, those are KYBER CRYSTALS (crystals = The Whills = Rey)

The very first shot of the trailer. It seems to be depicting a night sky.

However.

I believe this to be a red herring, and that it is actually to do something much more important.

I don’t think that’s a shot of stars. I think that’s a shot showing stones.

More specifically, kyber crystals.

Why is this significant and why do I think that this is actually what they are alluding to? 

Here is the breakdown:

Rogue one (Jedha, Guardians of the Whills, Kyber Crystals) + Skywalker lightsaber + Force Vision = Ancient Order of the Whills = Rey

It’s okay to be confused.

This is a theory I have had for a while, and when I saw that first shot, I started to grin like crazy, because it slotted into meta so well that I became convinced that what I predict will happen, will actually happen.

I recommend to read my post for the full theory and then look back at the beginning of the TLJ trailer:

http://sakurau121.tumblr.com/post/154779656150/how-does-rogue-one-effect-the-future-of-star-wars

If not, I will try to make this theory explanation as short and clear as possible, but bear with me!

1. Rogue One = Introduction to The Whills, Kyber Crystals, Temples

It’s no coincidence that Rogue One introduced us to the idea of the Guardian of the Whills, Jedha and Kyber Crystals. Jedha is home to the ‘Kyber Temple’ a.k.a. Temple of the Whills, which actually tells you a lot, because it means that the Whills and Kyber Crystals are closely linked together.

The whole exploration of the force in RO has absolutely nothing to do with the Jedi but is actually tied to the Whills.


In other words, the Whills as an Order is older than the Jedi. Luke, I think, was searching for the first Jedi Temple.

But what he found on Achto wasn’t a Jedi Temple. What he found was the original Temple of the Whills. 

Why can I make this assumption?

The beginning of the trailer proves this, because, like Jedha, Achto has kyber crystals hidden underneath it’s rocky surface. Again, this is associated to the Whills, not the Jedi. RO explicitly points this out and it is completely deliberate.

Hence:

There is a rumor going around that one of these books is ‘The Journal of the Whills’ and that is what Luke was searching for. I think this is actually probable.

2. Rey + Skywalker lightsaber a.k.a. Kyber Crystal Within

I  believe that the lightsaber itself is actually irrelevant. It doesn’t matter who made the lightsaber or even who used it. It is the crystal inside which is the crucial point. The crystal, which has Force energy within it, called to Rey, and the way that she reacted to it when she touched the lightsaber, is unique to her and her alone.

Nobody else, not even Anakin, Luke or Obi Wan, has had a reaction like Rey has to the lightsaber. And in fact, it’s to do with her connection to the kyber crystal, not the lightsaber.

3. Rey + Force Vision

The vision that Rey experiences involves her hearing the voice of Obi Wan Kenobi, and unlike the other voices, what he says is new and most importantly, present. This is not a voice of the past, but a voice speaking directly to Rey.

“The ability to defy oblivion can be achieved, but only for oneself. It was accomplished by a Shaman of the Whills. It is a state acquired through compassion, not greed.“


So Qui Gon Jinn informs Yoda. He explains that he learned how to become a ‘Force Ghost’, a state of eternal consciousness, from a Shaman of the Whills.

The Whills were beings who had a close connection to the Force, and it is these beings who I think might possibly be the first known Force Sensitives in the galaxy.

I think Rey’s connection to the crystal [her force vision] equals to a connection to those who are in a state of eternal consciousness, because Kyber Crystals are connected to the Whills. ‘Whills’ in the earliest draft of the original SW film, according to George Lucas, was another word for the Force.

Kyber Crystal = eternal consciousness = Whills

So…. what does this prove?

It proves that Rey herself is actually a descendant or part of the Ancient Order of the Whills.

She is clearly a Force-sensitive, but perhaps her origins are neither from the light side or dark side, but from something infinitely more ancient….. It would explain a lot about that Force Vision, for if she was a ‘Whill’, then it would explain why the kyber crystal inside Anakin’s lightsaber called out to her, in a way that it hasn’t for any other Force Sensitive in the current films.

Perhaps she has the power to unlock other Force abilities from the crystals, and this is what Luke and herself are discovering, according to the rumours about some scenes in Episode VIII.

So?

Now, let’s look at the beginning of TLJ trailer.

We start with what we think are stars. Then the music changes as the shot transforms… from what we think are meaningless stars to…..

diamond-like stones, glinting off the screen….. surrounded by rock. They become more material and solid. I think this is deliberate.

then Rey’s hand connects to the glittering stones and we pan up to her shocked face.

This, is a visual description of her Force Back Vision in TFA.

The Kyber Crystal’s underneath the Achto Temple a.k.a. the Whills Temple, Rey connecting to it, as she did with the Skywalker crystal, and her shocked face, similar to her expression after experiencing the Force Back Vision due to her connection to the kyber crystal.

It’s clever, and if my theory is right, pretty meta.

in other words….

The Temple + Kyber Crystal + Force Back = The Whills = Rey

So hey? What do guys think? Is a load of rubbish or do you think this is a possibility? Let me know! :D

oh, and as for Kylo Ren?

im sure he ain’t happy with his cracked kyber crystal. What if he is after kyber crystals and not Luke Skywalker? He and Luke possibly found something out about the Whills and kyber crystals….

therefore he wants to get Rey because he saw her connection to the Skywalker crystal and wants to get knowledge over how to wield the kyber crystals true powers, such as force back visions? so far jedi have only managed to make lightsabers out of them, whereas Rey, a Whill?, is experiencing visions….

I just wanted to add this extra piece of information I got from Rian Johnson’s recent interview with Empire magazine. I smiled guys. :P

If Luke had found the first Jedi temple amid the rocks and heather of Ahch-To, what could that mean? What lay within? More importantly, why did he need it?

NEED I SAY MORE?????!!!!!!!!

Archeologists have uncovered a miniature Swiss watch, in a tomb believed to have been undisturbed for 400 years!

The mysterious timepiece was encrusted in mud and rock and had stopped at 10:06 am. Watches were not around at the time of the Ming Dynasty and Switzerland did not even exist as a country. The archaeologists were filming a documentary with two journalists when they made the puzzling discovery.

‘When we tried to remove the soil wrapped around the coffin, suddenly a piece of rock dropped off and hit the ground with metallic sound,’ said Jiang Yanyu, former curator of the Guangxi Museum. ‘We picked up the object, and found it was a ring. ‘After removing the covering soil and examining it further, we were shocked to see it was a watch,’ he added. The Ming Dynasty - or the Empire of the Great Ming - was the ruling dynasty in China from 1368 to 1644

Harry James Potter, head of the DA and protégé of Albus Dumbledore himself, did not become a career Auror.
-Sure, he worked with them after the war-everyone did.
-Harry and Ron led the charge in rounding up old Death Eaters and Hermione researched and wrote crazily, making sure no stone was left unturned in their hunt and no memories were lost of the new history they’d made (her writings were eventually compiled into what is largely considered the most comprehensive history of Voldemort and his attacks ever written. Madame Prince has three copies in the school library).
-Even Neville and Luna lent their respective plant and animal (however strange) based abilities towards getting past old defenses and remaking allies.
-These children were born and raised in the midst of war, and it took a while for most of them to learn the ways of peace. But once they figured it out (sort of) they settled into their new roles.
-Hermione rose rapidly amongst Ministry ranks, Ron returned to family, the only truth he’d ever been sure of, and Harry went back to his first (real, remembered) home.
-The Defense Against the Dark Arts position had been rid of its curse for two years by the time Harry applied for the job, and the teacher who held it for those years was only temporary anyways. McGonagall had been hoping Harry would return to Hogwarts, and return he did.
-Harry Potter’s Defense lessons were notorious for their seemingly random schedule, where one day the class would be practicing spells normally, the next running obstacle courses in the Forbidden Forest, and the day after that having a class wide discussion on the power of emotions and their use in spells
-His first lesson of every year was on the power of chocolate and conversation to comfort, just as he had learned from Remus Lupin years ago. Like his old professor, Harry rewarded students with chocolate for good deeds and correct answers.
-Seventh Years got to choose personal research projects, ranging from meticulous dioramas of various battles to the best way to make a pile of dung explode
-Sixth Years learned more complicated traditional spells, including the Patronus and healing charms (Harry’s stag never failed to draw gasps the first time he showed it to a group)
-Fifth Years combined lessons from all their other classes to find ways to fight without traditional spell work, including stories from Harry about using Wingardium Leviosa to fight a troll his first year and Neville using his plants during the Battle of Hogwarts. (Often, Harry would bring in Hermione, Ron, and Neville to assist in the telling of these tales and the teaching of their techniques.)
-Fourth Years got lessons in love and death and ancient theories and stories, along with turns for everyone to go under the Invisibility Cloak on the day devoted to the Deathly Hallows
-Third Years learned defense against other species with a final like an obstacle course similar to the one given to Harry by Professor Lupin
-Second Year was for most traditional dueling spells, started with Expelliarmus. (Any students that complained about the “boring” spell would have him reply calmly, “this is what saved my life against Lord Voldemort” and shut right up)
-First Years started with basic theories, and continued to shielding and camouflaging charms (because Harry never really signed up to fight, and would rather his students never have to)
-every year ended with huge tournaments between the years, which he used to help houses bond with each other and to assess skills. They changed between magical paintball or laser tag, scavenger hunts, or temporary prank wars (the other professors’ least favorite), and the winners got to camp on the grounds for a night for s'mores, swimming, and a midnight Quidditch game
-His first students were mostly old enough to have been his classmates, just like those of the DA had been, and so his first years of teaching were to war-torn children like himself, who had gaps in their normal seating arrangements that their friends, now dead, had sat in, and the occasional blank stare that Harry was never offended by, as he was accustomed to seeing them on his friends and himself when they were revisiting horrors they’d witnessed
-as he continued teaching though, his students came in excited to learn from the famed Harry Potter, and he had to persuade them early on that to them, he was just a teacher who’d show them a trick on the Quidditch field or the location of a secret passageway, nothing more and nothing less
-eventually, students would get more excited when Harry announced that Hermione, the Minister of Magic, was coming to visit and chat with them about research, or Ginny, his Quidditch star wife, was arriving soon to show off her Bat Bogey hex than when he mentioned his own history
-and as time went on, Madame Pince’s copies of Hermione’s history book stayed on the shelves because students realized Harry was more likely to engage in a snowball fight than a duel and was happiest tucked into a Weasley sweater with a cup of tea, chatting with friends about anything other than defeating Dark Lords; and he was recognized in Diagon Alley less by adults wishing to shake his hand and more by children wanting to say hello to their favorite professor
-and students came to love him, not for his fame as the Boy Who Lived, but as a professor who cared, and sought to teach in a way that everyone could learn from, and Harry wouldn’t have it any other way

Poseidon Destroyed the World in 1200 BCE, Wrecked Atlantis, and Killed Mortal Culture For Over A Century, And His Kid Is Just As Dangerous. Or, how I took an archaeology class on Ancient Greece and got blindsided by headcanons and plot. Lots of thought about Poseidon and Percy.

is anyone else concerned as to why in the Fireheart closing chapter of ToD Aelin was repeatedly referred to as “the princess” rather than “the queen”???? Especially since Sarah has made a point recently to call Aelin “queen” and never princess. Especially since now we know there are Valg princesses and Maeve might somehow possess one to implant in Aelin???? someone please tell me im overanalyzing 

This new discoveries on NASA and Google satellite images could reveal that Antarctica was once the site of advanced ancient civilizations that flourished thousands of years before the emergence of other ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians. The ancient Antarctica civilizations are widely beleived to of had contact with extraterrestrial civilizations with advanced alien technology and left massive civil engineering monuments buried under Antarctica. And although much of the ruins remain buried beneath ice and snow, evidence of their existence is slowly coming to light through NASA and Google satellite imagery

Amongst other things recently found in Google Earth satellite imagery is evidence of an ancient city buried in the Antarctic ice. A massive, circular, 400-ft structure that looks like a fort, giving possible evidence of a lost ancient city and civilization that once flourished on the frozen continent. Satellite imagery, also reveals multiple massive artificial pyramid structures in Antarctica. Is this the location of the legendary lost city of Atlantis?

In any case the most disturbing thing about this new finding is that up untill two days ago the coordinates for the newly discovered “giant Atlantic stair case” worked fine but now there is no map available for these coordinates 68°54'57 .42"S ,88° 1'49.92"E !!!

Give me a Sirius Black who takes History of Magic until he graduates, even though everyone around him hates it and says it’s boring. Even he hates it, but he has a collection of thoroughly researched files on wizarding families of Europe, just in case someone needs to be forged into one to be kept safe.

Give me a Mary Macdonald who studies Divination, not only because she loves it but because she wants to cling to any hope she has of knowing what’s coming. A Mary who believed in fairy tales her whole childhood, when she learned she was a witch she was elated, only to find out that the stuff of her dreams was really a nightmare that she could never escape.

Give me a Remus Lupin who pours over books on Ancient Runes, who spends his free time studying Magical Theory, hoping he can translate something that was misunderstood before. Something that might help give his side an edge against the darkness approaching. Hoping there’s a way to create a spell to defeat the man coming for those he loves.

Give me a Lily Evans who studies Potions meticulously, sitting two desks over from Severus Snape, never looking his way. A Lily who makes note of every antidote, every poison, every possible aid or weapon to add to her arsenal. Give me a Lily who in carries life in little bottles and can bring death anyone with a single drop, magical blood or no.

Give me a James Potter who takes to Defense Against the Dark Arts like he was born to it. A James who can cast a Shield charm faster than anyone in his class and have a Disarming spell ready to go. A James who, during a practical exercise pitting the class against each other, doesn’t hesitate to Stun the opposing student when he narrowly misses Mary’s ear. His friends realize that day that his unwavering belief in the good in people only goes as far as the safety of his loved ones.

Give me a Marlene McKinnon who storms into her career advising meeting with McGonagall and demands that she be allowed to take whatever necessary to learn to fight. “I don’t care that you think I’m too young Professor, I know what I believe and it isn’t that Evans or Macdonald or anyone else is any worse than me because of their parents. I’m going to fight no matter what so you’d best teach me how.” Give me a Marlene who refuses to take any advice other than what she’s asked for and when she finally leaves with a schedule full of defensive magic and practical learning Professor McGonagall watches her go with a mixture of pride and fear in her heart. 

Give me a Peter Pettigrew who aims for a N.E.W.T in Herbology. A Peter who works with Professor Sprout to breed and train plants to fight, plants that poison or explode or entrap their victims. A Peter who knows his strengths and plays to their advantage. Years later, when Professor Sprout gains a new assistant in this endeavor her chest tightens. Maybe Neville Longbottom will be different.

Give me children who study the practical things, Children who know they have been drafted into a war they never wanted. Children who don’t plan to go down without a fight.
