web page The story of the Dropa Stones, or more accurately the Dropa Discs begins in the summer of 1938, when a Chinese archaeological expedition begins mapping a series of interlocking caves in a part of the Himilayan Mountains called the Baian Kara Ula Mountains, between the border that divides China and Tibet. The expedition was being led by a Dr. Chi Pu Tei, when they stumbled across a remarkable find. In some of the caves, there were neat lines of graves, and buried in these graves were the remains of a strange people. Averaging about 4 feet in height, they had long spindly limbs and round, large oversized heads. The researchers speculated that they were the remains of apes, but apes are hardly known for burying their dead. More recently it has been suggested that these are the remains of aliens, grey type beings, as we shall see why. As well in other caves there were discovered cave drawings, pictograms of the heavens. The drawings have been carbon dated as being between 10 and 12 thousand years old (reportedly). Then a researcher stumbled across a strange, hand crafted stone disc. It was 9 inches in diameter (approximately), with a 3/4 inch perfectly round hole in the center of the disc.
This disc was also found to have a "groove" spiraling outward from the center, tightly wound like a Fred Flintstone phonograph album. However, upon further inspection, the groove was found to be no groove at all, but rather a continuous line of written characters or hieroglyphics, unlike any ever seen before. The writing was almost microscopic. In all, 716 of these discs were recovered, ranging in size from several inches to several feet. Nevertheless, the discs and their undeciphered messages sat in the basement of Beijing University. At his point I would like to make two sidenotes. 1. There are unsubstantiated reports (at this time) that the chambers the skeletons, pictograms and discs were in were squared off and gave the appearance of having been created by intense heat melting them. The second one is I personally do not feel that the age of the drawings on the walls can confirm the age of the discs conclusively..
There may have been attempts to decipher the writing between the time they were discovered and 1962, when another Chinese scientist claimed to have unraveled the mystery of the inscriptions. Dr. Tsum Um Nui claimed to do just that, and if his findings are correct, the discs describe possibly our planets first encounters with an alien civilization. Yet the fact is, the stones may well be almost 12,000 years old, and many of the characters were either worn away or were hardly discernable. Yet Dr. Nui transcribed the characters to paper, and after much research, claimed to have decoded the messages. He said the story on the disc describe an alien spaceship crash landing in the mountains, and the occupants initially being met with fear by the tribe known as the Hams. He goes on to say that eventually the aliens made peace with the Hams.
The professor wrote up his findings and presented it to the University for publication. The Academy of Prehistory forbade him to do so. Even so, two years later he did publish his findings in a paper entitled "The Grooved Script Concerning Spaceships Which, as Recorded on the Discs, Landed on Earth 12,000 years ago". No one is quite sure if he got permission to publish his findings or not, but the reaction of the archaeological community was one of scorn and ridicule. As with other findings that challenge accepted scientific doctrine, this far fetched theory was treated no differently. And yet, how do you explain the writing itself ? It is so small you need a magnifying glass to read most of it, and yet many of the characters have been worn away, suggesting an age of at least thousands of years, if not as old as the cave drawings themselves.
Interestingly enough, the isolated area today is inhabited by two tribes of people who call themselves the Ham and the Dropa. They have an average height of 4 feet 2 inches and weigh usually between 38 and 52 pounds. They are yellow skinned with thin bodies and disproportionately large heads. They have very little body hair and have blue irises, unlike most Asians. Make what of it you will, I however doubt that the inhabitants of that area would have been able to reproduce offspring if the original Dropa were indeed alien, which makes me wonder of where their true origins came from. (See my Underworld section). There is also a report that a Russian scientist named W. Saitsew republished the findings of Dr. Nui in 1968. Physically, the stones contained cobalt and other metals, which makes one wonder how primitive people could have inscribed the minute hieroglyphics on such a hard substance.He also tested them in an oscillograph that produced some more unusual findings. A surprising oscillation rhythm was recorded, as though the discs were once electrically charged or had functioned as electrical conductors. Whatever the true nature of the discs, wherever they came from, they
represent a unique challenge to anthropology. If they are man made, how were primitives able to inscribe the discs with such small characters? And if they are indeed the product of extra terrestrials, how profound is that discovery to man kind? If the inhabitants are from under the surface of this planet, why were the "clues" left there? At the very least, the Dropa Stones remain for now one of the greatest mysteries of the unexplained.
