ATLANTIS - MYTH OR REALITY
Charles Berlitz writes of strange illustrations on the walls of the temple at Denderah which appear to be:
five-foot (1.5 metres) light bulbs, each one with an clongated serpent filament inside, held up by high-tension insulators and attached to braided cables which in turn are connected to a transformer. The overwhelming majority of Egyptologists interpret these apparent bulbs as lotus offerings, snake stones, or cult offerings.
ancient Egyptians managed to illuminate their subterranean chambers
sufficiently to carry out some to the intricate artwork contained
there has never been satisfactorily explained, however. Torches
or lamps would have left tell-tale signs on the walls and ceilings,
but there are none. Another theory is that it was executed with
a series of mirrors. But surely, by the time the reflected light
reached deep into the cavernous depths of some of these ancient
structures, it would have diminished to such an extent as to
render the execution of fine artistic detail almost impossible.
And so the mystery remains.
