Dropa Stones. Their Unbelievable Story

Dropa Stones, China, c. 12,000 years old

In 1938 in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains on the border that divides China and Tibet an archaeological expedition led by Chi Pu Tei, has found some caves that had obviously been occupied by a primitive people long ago. The caves could have been artificially carved, and were a complex system of tunnels and underground storerooms. The walls were squared  as if cut into the mountain with a source of extreme heat.

Inside the caves were several ancient burial sites, and in them the skeletal remains of a strange people. The skeletons, measuring a little more than four feet tall, were frail and having large skulls.

On the walls were carved pictograms of the sun, the moon, the stars, and the Earth with lines of dots connecting them. Half-buried in the floor of the cave was a stone disk having approximately nine inches in diameter and three-quarters of an inch thickness. In the center of the disk was a perfectly round, 3/4″ hole, and etched in its face was a fine groove spiraling out from the center to the rim. This plate was dated to be between 10,000 and 12,000 years old – older by far than the great pyramids of Egypt. In all, 716 such plates were found. And each held an incredible secret. The groove was in fact a continuous line of strange carved hieroglyphis – writing.

The almost microscopic hieroglyphis were in a unknown language.

In 1962 another Chinese scientist, Dr. Tsum Um Nui, was able to decode the message of the stone plates – a message so incredible and earth-shattering that the Prehistory Department of the Beijing Academy prohibited its translation to be published. Eventually, the message was published, and what is says is trully amazing.

Dr. Tsum Um Nuipublisged the book “The Grooved Script Concerning Spaceships Which, as Recorded on the Discs, Landed on Earth 12,000 Years Ago.”

The Dropa disks tell the story of a space probe from a distant planet that crash-landed in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of the Himalayas. The occupants of the spacecraft – the Dropa – found refuge in the caves of the mountains. Despite their peaceful intentions, the Dropa were misunderstood by members of the Ham tribe who were occupying neighboring caves and who hunted down the aliens and even killed some of them. A translation of one of the passages says: “The Dropa came down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women, and children hid in the caves ten times before sunrise. When at last they understood the sign language of the Dropa, they realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions….”

The stones go on to say how the Dropa were unable to repair their disabled spacecraft and could not return to their home planet, and so were stranded on Earth.

In 1968, W. Saitsew, a Russian scientist who republished the findings of Tsum Um Nui conducted a few tests on the Dropa disks that revealed some very peculiar properties. The granite stones contained high concentrations of cobalt and other metals – a very hard stone indeed that would have made it difficult for the primitive people to carve the lettering, especially with such small characters. When testing a disk with an oscillograph, a surprising oscillation rhythm was recorded as if, the scientists said, they had once been electrically charged or had functioned as electrical conductors.
