Mystifying Easter Islands

Easter Island is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian triangle. A special territory of Chile that was annexed in 1888, Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapanui people. The natives of the Easter Islands still call their island Mata Kita Rani, which in old Greek language means “eyes that look up to heavens”. The neighboring atoll is called the Island of the Bird People. Here we see them engraved on ancient stones – creatures with human bodies and heads of birds. Are they really bird heads, or do they just seem so, to the natives? They could also be helmets equipped with breathing apparatus. Legend has it that in prehistoric times some people descended to the island amidst fire. The god of the Island is Nake Naki.

Today about 2000 people live in the island. However there were more than 4000 people at one time; all scholars agree upon that. This being established a tango of vexing question arises. Of the total population 70% are women, children and elderly. Majority of able bodied men are required for the production of food. Thus the number of workmen are so small, that it would have been impossible for them to create more then 600 gigantic stone figures found everywhere on the island. These figures are called MOAI.

The stone is so hard that repeated hammering with steel chisel hardly scratches it. Many of these stand 65 feet high and weigh nearly 400 tones. Most of the sculptures are partly exposed, and a dedicated excavation work will reveal their true size. The figures are all the same unusual type of humans with haughty expression in their faces, as if passed from the same mould. However there is one exception here. There is one statue that has a round head and is kneeling. Is this to denote a human kneeling before the Gods, with the symbolism of the Gods everywhere on the island?

The statues that were carved out were also carried out to distances of over 12 miles. There were no army of slaves for labourers, no wood for rollers, and there are no evidences of these being dragged across the island terrain. Yet these colossal statues are scattered all across the island. The legend of Easter Islands says that the stone statues moved by themselves with the help of Mana – a mysterious priest which only two priests could invoke. And then one day the priests disappeared with the Mana. Was this the day when their work got over at the quarry of Rano Raraku? Or is that the reason why there is an army of unfinished statues. What was the Mana? Did the visitors to the Easter Islands possess electromagnetic powers? Did they have the ability to defy the laws of gravity? Even today Easter Islands exert unusually strong magnetism. And is one of the points of the Earth’s vile vortices.
