Why ancients drew blue colored gods? – VERSADOCO


Why do we keep referring to something like
blue blood? Human blood is actually red. Usually, we use this term specifically to
address a member of a wealthy, upper-class family or ancestry. But why exactly blue blood? Not green, not red but blue? We may find an answer in ancient legends and
stories. In the ancient world the right to rule was
something only gods and their blood descendants had. The question is what is the meaning of the
term “gods”? When ancients were talking about different
fields of humankind knowledge all of them agree about the same: this knowledge or that
technology were granted by those who they called gods. The question is how to understand the term
“gods”? We can think about them as a fiction or myth,
or deification of ancestors. But we can also think about them as representatives
of some highly advanced civilization. Much more advanced than our ancient ancestors. For instance, if we would take ancient Roman
and put him into our civilization with all our technologies: television, internet and
so on. So for him it’ll look like civilization
of gods. We should point out that in legends, ancient
gods weren’t spirits in the modern understanding. They had flesh and they were living amongst
humans. So we are talking about some representatives
of a highly advanced civilization, most probably exo civilization, who were technologically
superior to our ancestry and whom our ancients treated like gods. But what if those ancient gods literally had
blue blood? This could be used to prove that one is a
descendant of the sacred family and has the full right to rule. What if the Blue blood phenomenon was a real
thing? Something that was very specific to the ancient
gods’ physiology. So what is Blue blood? Human blood is red. One of its main functions is the transport
of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide as well as various nutrients to the cells and the transport of
metabolic waste products away from those same cells. Oxygen is the principal element that our body
uses for energy production via very complex chemical processes. The important thing for us is that as a side
product of these reactions, a lot of Carbon Dioxide in our body is produced and must be
removed constantly. So transferring these gases is the main function
of the blood. To do so it has special molecules with a metal
ion in them. We call them respiratory pigments. Human respiratory pigment is haemoglobin. It’s bright red when oxygenated and it’s
red because of ions of the metal iron in it. But even with a metal iron based blood, its
colours may vary from green to violet. As it turns out, oxygen can be carried by
other metal ions as well, so evolution didn’t limit itself in choice here. Surprisingly, we have species with blue coloured
blood on our planet, too. This colour is caused by hemocyanin, a respiratory
pigment based not on iron but copper. In fact, this pigment is very widespread in
the sea life world. Some snails, spiders, crustaceans, cuttlefish,
crabs and octopuses, have blue blood not red. Actually blue blood exists. For example, mollusks, octopuses have it. This is a copper based blood. If we will substitute ion of iron to ion of
copper we will get hemocyanin. In other words – blue blood. But is it possible that not just lower animals,
but hominids can have a blue blood as well? It was scientifically proved and has been
known for a long time that the environment can greatly affect the elemental composition
of living organisms. This is accompanied by a change in the chemical
composition of the body. There can be chemical mutants with changes
in the nucleus such as chromosome numbers and so on. And such variability can become hereditary. It’s understandable that in a situation
where there’s a particular element deficiency, evolution will substitute it with one that
is in abundance to secure its mission. On our planet, evolution bet on the iron based
blood that is common for most organisms. Iron is constantly circulated in our body
just as any other microelement. 90% of it stays in the body and then is re-included
to the new blood cells and respiratory pigment. There is no lack of iron on our planet. Iron is the second commonest metallic element
on Earth after aluminium. But most of it exists in a very difficult
to assimilate ferric form. Despite the fact of the lack of an easily
assimilated iron, evolution went on the iron based blood physiology anyway. Thus we can conclude that a haemoglobin based
pigment is more effective than other metals and there is no critical lack of iron for
organisms in nature. But let’s imagine another situation: on
some exo planet there is less iron than on Earth and there is excess of copper instead. What element will be chosen by evolution then? The answer is obvious: it will be copper based
respiratory pigment transferred with a baby blue blood! Could it really happen that some planet has
more copper than iron in its crust? Let’s have a look at our sun. According to one study, Earth has more iron
in its crust than the sun has -percentage wise. And the Earth has 100 times less copper than
on the sun! But the chemical composition of the sun should
correspond to the protoplanetary cloud from which Earth was formed. And if a very high concentration of iron can
be caused by data inaccuracy, we still have lack of copper. This obviously means that the answer is Yes! The planet can have much more copper in its
crust than we have now. It means that some exo planet from which the
ancient gods came from according to ancient legends and stories, could have more copper
than iron. I stand on the base of assumption that in
some aspects myths tell truth literally. Including the part about the origins of the
gods. In all mythology gods that were giving knowledge
come from heavens. So that literally means that they came from
heavens or how we would understand today from other planet. And I’m gravitating toward this version
not even because of ancient artifacts that exist and testify about highly advanced technologies
that also as an option suppose space origins of this advanced civilization. But because the space in which we live is
equal. I mean if these gods appeared from nowhere
ancient could say that they came from West, East, from the ground, from the top etc. Everywhere in legends you’ll find very specific
origins of the ancient gods – gods came from heavens. So if the ancient gods arrived on our planet
with its lack of copper and excess of iron relatively to them, they must have adapted
to this new circumstance. Firstly, they should constantly replenish
their organisms with copper. We know that erythrocytes – red blood cells
that carry haemoglobin live only 120 days. This is why constant replenishment with iron
is required for blood formation. The same should be true for gods as well,
but instead of iron it should be copper. Secondly, iron is more chemically active element
than copper. Thus, once in the blood of gods it aims to
substitute copper in chemical reactions. In other words, iron was toxic for them and
they would have to avoid it at any cost. Iron is very chemically aggressive and it
starts to compete with copper once in the body. And if we suppose that species that arrived
on our planet had a blue blood which means copper based blood. They found themselves into situation where
all fauna have iron based physiology…Iron is toxic for them. They started to moving humankind to the products
that is more favorable for them but not humans. The simplest way to battle iron is to stick
to a specific copper rich diet. This might shed light on the neolithic revolution
when humanity universally switched from hunter-gathering to agriculture. The accepted narrative is that humans gave
up hunting and gathering as soon they discovered agricultural technology, because it made life
easier and safer. This is not quite right. There are plenty of ethnography researches
that shows that transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture was extremely not
profitable for an ancient human. In fact, humans spent thousands of years trying
to preserve their hunter-gatherer lifestyle. According to ancient legends and stories,
the switch to agriculture wasn’t our ancestors’ idea at all. Knowledge and technology was granted by ancient
gods in a ready to use form. Apparently, it had very strong connection
to copper. So the products that ancients allegedly transitioned
to or in fact they were forced to transition – all this grains are very poor for the iron. For instance, there’s a lot of iron in legumes,
vegetables, berries (strawberries and cherries in particular) and meat. Copper rich products are grains, cereals and
bread. Basically, this switch from hunter-gathering
to agriculture makes no sense, because all the iron we needed was literally at hand. And we know that some communities like Australian
aboriginals spent thousands of years preserving their hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Under external pressure, humanity turned to
production of poor for iron and rich for copper food despite the fact that human body never
lacks copper even during pregnancy, when women experience a deficit of many microelements. So we can conclude that this decision was
made by the gods for their own personal interests. Why ancients transitioned to the wheat based
agriculture and not to root vegetables agriculture that has 10 to 100 times more effective productivity? Because root vegetables are very rich for
iron and this was not profitable to so-called gods. Moreover, cereals not only have little iron,
they also have substances such as phosphates and phytins that create sparingly soluble
salts and reduce absorption of iron in the body. The hypothesis that ancient gods had hemocyanin
based blood allows us to look differently at some interesting details of the ancient
legends and stories. Сopper has strong antibacterial characteristics. Its healing properties have been known for
a very long time and were used in the traditional medicine of many nations. Such antibacterial characteristics were even
used in space medicine where textile impregnated with copper kept medical tools sterile for
nine months or more. A high concentration of copper in the gods’
blue blood and a low amount of iron in their diet would boost antibacterial properties
that their blood already had. Maybe this was the secret of their extremely
long life, which almost looked like immortality to the ancients? Since copper is blue in the oxygenated state,
species with blue blood would look paler than we do now. But, since skin colour comes from various
-at least 3 – types of melanin, not our blood chemistry, it is unlikely there would be much
difference in appearance, except a slight blue pallor. Ancient Indian gods are the best example of
what they could look like. In nature, copper deposits contain a lot of
silver. Silver accompanies a copper everywhere. This is so much a connected phenomenon that
modern silver mining usually happens simultaneously with copper mining. Almost one fifth of all the world’s silver
is mined from copper deposits. This means that on the planet of gods there
would be a lot of silver as well, because the laws of physics work the same everywhere. Like copper, silver has very strong antibacterial
properties. Water from silver jugs has tiny particles
of silver in it, that even in an extremely low concentration, has antibacterial properties,
because silver can block the enzyme systems of microbes. And that also adds some credit to the “immortality”
of gods! Moreover it’s widely known that an overdose
of silver causes an irreversible change of skin colour to bluish tones, that in conjunction
with the blue blood of gods can increase effect of the blue skin. We also know that very effective immune system
mechanisms existed in the blue blood species on our planet. The marvellous thing about the horseshoe crab’s
blue blood, though, isn’t the colour. It’s a chemical found only in the mobile cells
of its blood that can detect mere traces of bacterial presence and trap them in inescapable
clots. This gel immobilized the bacteria but did
not kill them. Modern pharmacy make widespread use of that
feature. Every single person in America who has ever
had an injection has been protected because we harvest the blood of a forgotten sea creature
with a hidden chemical superpower. If ancient gods had a similar mechanism of
immune protection in their blue blood, it would also have increased their longevity. Despite all its benefits, hemocyanin based
blue blood has a serious drawback in that it cannot effectively transport carbon dioxide
out of cells. If the concentration of carbon dioxide increases
in blood, this causes a high level of acidity and shift in pH of blood, which is bad for
overall health. PH is an indicator of acidity or alkalinity
of a solution. In our blood, haemoglobin takes care of about
75% of ability of the blood to hold pH within a stable 7,35 – 7,45 value. And this value is stable, even under very
radical changes in nutrition and other external factors. But the gods’ blue blood contains not haemoglobin
but hemocyanin or another copper based respiratory pigment that doesn’t change its acidity
with oxygen concentration. As a result, it is not capable of neutralizing
negative changes from high concentrations of carbon dioxide. The result is high blood acidity can cause
more than 200 illnesses and cancer. A high level of acidity is the perfect environment
for bacteria, viruses, parasites and the growth of cancer cells. To counter this situation an organism would
use the minerals in joints liquid, bones and teeth – which will cause joint diseases, teeth
caries and osteoporosis of bones as well as collateral damage to kidneys. Multiple studies have established that even
a 0.1 shift of the blood pH value can cause serious harm to the body. The shift of blood’s pH by just 0.2 points
will cause a coma. We can find the proof that such negative influence
on ancient gods physiology had taken place in historical documents. From The History of Egypt written by Egyptian
priest and researcher Manetho we know that in the first 12.300 years, Egypt was ruled
by seven great gods. During the second dynasty there were 12 divine
rulers who ruled for 1570 years – that is 130 years for each god. Then Egypt was ruled by semi-gods. Each of them ruled for 120 years only. According to this data from Manetho we can
see a constant decline of their reigns. We can conclude that such long ruling periods
of the first generation of gods could be a reason why people believed them to be immortal. But we shouldn’t understand immortality
here literally. As we know gods at the end of their reign
on Earth departed to the afterlife where they continued their ruling. Sumerian and Indian gods were effectively
able to kill each other as did the gods of American Indians and gods of other nations. So if we look at terms of reign of gods of
Egypt as defined by longevity of their life, we will see a clear reduction in life expectancy. Thus the shortening of their life was constant
and inevitable for them. There must be a reason why it happened and
it looks like it was the negative influence of environmental factors on our planet, which
were unfriendly for their physiology. That could happen only in one case: if the
conditions on the Earth differed substantially from the conditions on the home planet of
the gods with something very significant to them. But according to legends, this difference
wasn’t so different as to be crucial. The main group of the gods didn’t use space
suits, so the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere was close to their homeland. Ancient legends and stories tell us that gods
didn’t leap about on the Earth surface like astronauts on the Moon. Thus their home planet’s gravity was similar
to ours. And as was mentioned before they consumed
Earth food but needed a special copper rich diet. Here we should recall our assumption that
gods had copper based blue blood that had a seriously limited ability to transport extra
volumes of carbon dioxide out of their body. So this could be a crucial factor for them,
because hemocyanin or other copper based respiratory pigment – unlike human’s haemoglobin – do
not have abilities to neutralize the excessive acidity in the blood. So the assumption of a copper based blue blood
has a lot of reference that can be found in the ancient legends. This, combined with real empirical understanding
of the impacts of a civilization of gods on ancient society might finally allow to understand
some dramatic turns in our history.
