The Truth Behind: The Crystal Skulls
I was consumed by the need to finish the documentary once I started it, despite some of the... interesting characters that were interviewed.
I thought that they were thorough in their examination, if the belief is that the skull is a living being.
However, it seemed to me, that the belief was that the skulls are celestial and/or spiritual beings, and therefore the physical tests only served to prove that the skulls are not living.
Now, in no way do I believe that the skulls are cursed or spiritual beings, but it was neither proved or disproved that the skulls were in any way connected to some of the "evil" linked to them.
I was fascinated by the man who helped to recreate the skull, captivated by the woman with the ability to accurately place all of the musculature to give the skull a flesh-face, and generally liked the presentation of the documentary.
My only complaint, as I see others have, is that there seemed to have been no effort made to track down the original owner's family, friends, business, etc. to learn more about how the skull was created, whether or not he was knowingly involved in the scam (and therefore didn't speak out against F.A. Mitchell-Hedges), and I'm honestly interested in how the man who "sees images" presented to him by the skull felt about the findings.
A bit of poking around on the internet has given me more information, thankfully. haha
I genuinely enjoyed watching this.
Oh my gosh! The 2 "scientific" experiments, "brain signals" and hologram, are the stupidest experiments I have ever seen.
Let's start with "brain signals" experiment. They were attempting to detect brain-like activity in the skull using an EEG. The skull is CRYSTAL. It's not flesh and
blood. It does not have neurons or muscles. You will not detect electrical activity from neurons or muscle movement. It's a chunk of rock. If you take a human brain,
plop it down on a bench, connect an EEG, you will not detect any kind of electical activity. It requires a live human body for it to be active.
Hologram experiment. The woman's face had to have been recorded on the holographic media. If you took blank media and fired a laser through it, it wouldn't produce a woman's face. The skull that was examined was a replica of the real skull of doom. It was blank - empty. Why would you expect it produce a hologram? If the crystal skull is supposed to be some sort of information container, information would have to be put into it before you could get anything out of it.
Using a crystal as a storage medium for information would require that information would have to be put into it. The crystal would then have to be activated in some way to get the information out of it. The scientists did not know how to put information into the skull nor how to get that information out.
I watched this program and was left with one nagging question, How did someone in the 1930s, or 40s make this Crystal Skull, where even when, a modern, crystal skull maker could not make as precise replica?
Please someone answer that question!
