Amateur archaeologist Semir Osmanagic pointed to this recently-excavated geometrically cut stone blocks as evidence of an ancient pyramid buried under a massive hill in Visoko, Bosnia.
Osmanagic believes the structure itself is a colossal 722 feet high, or a third taller than Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza. The huge stone blocks discovered Wednesday appear to be cut in cubes and polished.
Earlier research on the hill, known as Visocica, found that it has perfectly shaped, 45-degree slopes pointing toward the cardinal points, and a flat top. Under layers of dirt, workers discovered a paved entrance plateau, entrances to tunnels and large stone blocks.
Last week's excavations began with a team of rescue workers from a nearby coal mine being sent into a tunnel believed to be part of an underground network connecting the three pyramid-shaped hills.
They were followed by archeologists, geologists and other experts who emerged from the tunnel later to declare that it was certainly man-made.
But not everyone is convinced - some even called Osmanagic crazy since his pyramid theories involved Atlantis and the Maya:
Semir Osmanagich presents his book "The World of the Maya" as a galactic telescope by means of which cosmic harmony may be achieved. Having visited dozens of Mayan cities in Central America, the author arrives at the conclusions that it is in our future that "we should become planetary Maya with sophisticated technology which will harmoniously connect the frequencies of the Sun and our psyches. Because the Mayan life is that of the soul living in harmony with the Cosmic processes."
As if that's not enough, some people are trying to stop the dig, claiming that it's a US conspiracy to colonize Bosnia.
As an expert in Roman-Hellenic antiquity, Hitchner had come up with a simple yet brilliant idea: use a TROJAN HORSE ("pyramids") tactics to achieve a DEVIDE AND RULE strategy, perfected by Hellenic and Roman generals respectively.
The "pyramids" did not have a symbolic role just in recolonizing Bosnia, but also in the start of a new era (Reagan's New World Order) that will, as Heilbrunn & Lind announce, after two centuries end "The Age of the Diplomatic Mask".
Others are, predictably, cashing in ...
"Our expectation are high. This could be our oil well," Vehab Halilovic, who has started carving pyramids on wooden souvenirs like flutes and pipes.
One local hotel called "Hollywood" has changed its name to "Motel Bosnian Sun Pyramid."
Its website boasts: "While enjoying your meal in our restaurant placed on the 6th floor, you have the opportunity to also enjoy a magnificent view of the Sun Pyramid. You too can be part of the mystery and the miracle occurring in our area."
