DATELINE: Keyholes Everywhere
Ancient Aliens has provided us with another fascinating topic for the 16thseason. “The Galactic Keyhole,” looks at ancient structures built in the shape of keyholes (though they are not uniform in style or relative shape).
The suggestion is that the metaphor of keyhole unlocks a gateway in the universe.
Almost immediately, you have Giorgia Tsoukalos jumping the gun to call these structures “sacred.” They may be old, and they may have even had some religious significance, but burial mounds are not always sacred. Sometimes they are egotistical, like a pyramid to one man.
However, Ancient Aliens begins to catalogue these items to all parts of earth, all cultures, and now a shape of keyhole can be seen on the Mars surface. Whether it is shadow, like the infamous face, will await personal visits by people.
One of the highlights of the show is when Marty Lagina from Curse of Oak Island rejoins Giorgio Tsoukalos on the Italian island of Sardinia. The keyhole mystery is tied into the Knights Templar, but do not go to Oak Island this time.
Here they examine some keyhole shaped cisterns built thousands of years ago, as precise as the pyramids from a society that had no engineering math. It’s a wow moment for Lagina. He is there only for a few moments and feels like a sequence filmed a few years ago.
The Sardinia keyhole is a mirror of one likely from the same timeframe in India. However, they fail to note that many of these keyholes are different, some like St. Peter’s Square ae gigantic, which experts theorize mean the Holy Grail whose shape in profile is a keyhole is in Vatican City, not Oak Island.
The best theory from Giorgio is that Buddha in the Stupah is a cross-section of a man going up in a space capsule.
All in all, it is way beyond the anthropology skills of most college students and a highly intelligent discussion, which we always appreciate.
