Throughout the main island of Manus, there are many stories about the cultural heroes popularly known as Pokops. Unlike heroes who belonged to a family and/or a village, it is said that Pokops just appeared out of nowhere, enjoyed a brief idyllic life, and then disappeared into the world of oblivion.
All Pokops were males and none of them had a family history leading up to him and similarly none were claimed to have left descendants to claim and inherit their famous mountain-top havens. Pokop yap Pohyomou, Pokop yap Pohonanus, Pokop yap Pwenet and Pokop yap Tarau all lived on Hill Top Havens. The havens, mind you, are all rock formations and are the highest of points of the areas they occupy
This poses many interesting questions in one’s mind about their existence. Did the Pokops really live in the time past or did they exist only in the myths? Why is it that many of them attracted beautiful women and yet left no descendants? Maybe they were what the moderns would call male chauvinists? Or maybe they were a unique breed of supernatural human beings?
Whatever they are, the Pokop’s left their petroglyph and their existence in every hilltop or Tableland they occupy. These markings are similar to markings found all over the world which points to super-natural beings.
Polyomo Tableland the home of Pokop Yap Pohyomou contains a strange marking that is rumored to be from aliens. These strange markings can also be found on Pwenet Tableland in Manus and also in some areas’s of the world.
After looking at these markings, I had to search on google for similar markings and have found many in Europe and some in South America as well. It is not know the reason why there is one right at the heart of the Island of Manus but it seems there may be a connection to the site through the legends of Pokops
The story of Pokop Yap Pohyomou has been well covered by Dr. Bernard Minol and you can read some of them on this website.
Similar Labyrinth around the world
The earliest examples, precise symbols found carved on rocks and painted or scratched on pottery, date to the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods, although are often difficult to date precisely. The same design, found on coins from Crete from the first few centuries BC, symbolise the labyrinth at Knossos in which the Minotaur was imprisoned. Popular throughout the Roman Empire as a protective and decorative symbol on the mosaic floors of civic buildings and villas, they were also constructed outdoors at this time as a playground for children and as a test of skill for soldiers on horseback.
During the medieval period the labyrinth symbol developed into a more intricate form, reflecting the complexities of faith, life and philosophy in the medieval mind. Occurring first in manuscripts, it was subsequently laid in coloured marble and tiles on the floors of cathedrals and churches, most famously at Chartres Cathedral, where the labyrinth constructed in the early 13th century survives to this day, and indeed, has become an object of pilgrimage for modern visitors.
NASA Published book suggest Aliens drawings
Though the White House maintains that there has not yet been credible evidence that suggests the presence of extra terrestrial life, a new volume of an official NASA e-book released this week details the hunt for such evidence by the space agency and other organizations and even suggests that unusual patterns cut into rock actually “might have been made by aliens.
The book edited by Dr. Douglas Vakoch, the director of Interstellar Message Composition at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence organization, includes ”incisive critique with hope that there is a response to the skepticism behind these critiques.” Vakoch, according to his profile on SETI’s website, “researches ways that different civilizations might create messages that could be transmitted across interstellar space, allowing communication between humans and extraterrestrials even without face-to-face contact.”
“Archaeology, Anthropology, and Interstellar Communication” has contributors that “raise questions that may have been overlooked by physical scientists about the ease of establishing meaningful communication with an extraterrestrial intelligence.”
Vakoch wrote in the book’s introduction that is a challenge for scientists to actually “recognize manifestations of extraterrestrial intelligence, even when they resemble a naturally occurring phenomenon.” He points out archaeologist Paul Wason’s argument that there needs to be an “intellectual context” for researchers to even o identify signs of intelligence.
Need to Preserve Pokop Pohyomou Petroglyphs
Petroglyphs from Pohyomou Tableland needs to be preserved. These petroglyphs are ancestral sites which our forefathers lived for many years before disappearing into the unknowns.
The petroglyphs would interest any archeologist as there has never been one to study these petroglyphs and the meaning surrounding them.
