30 degrees north latitude mainly refers to the range covered by the fluctuations of 5 degrees up and down at 30 degrees north latitude. At this latitude, there have been many unpredictable humanistic phenomena and natural wonders. The most familiar is this latitude line. The “four ancient civilizations” China, ancient India, Babylon, and ancient Egypt are connected together, and the world’s highest peaks such as Mount Everest, the deepest Mariana Trench, and the lowest lake, the Dead Sea, are also on this line. .
The Mayan civilization was conceived, arose, and developed in the Yucatan Peninsula, Chiapas and Tapasco in present-day Mexico, as well as parts of Central America, including Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Belize, with a total area of 324,000 square kilometers. The population of the Mayan culturally popular area reached 14 million people.
Mayan culture is a jungle culture. Although it is in the Neolithic Age, it has extremely high achievements in astronomy, mathematics, agriculture, art and writing.
In 2500 BC, the architectural engineering of the Mayan period reached the highest level in the world at that time, and the eclipse cycle and the laws of the sun, moon, and Venus have been mastered.
Since the American John Stephens first discovered ancient Mayan civilization sites in the tropical jungles of Honduras in 1839, archaeologists from all over the world have discovered more than 170 abandoned ancient Mayan cities in the jungles and wastelands of Central America.
The civilization of the Maya began in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico in the north, Guatemala and Honduras in the south, and reached the Andes Mountains in the south. This mysterious nation has built huge buildings of staggering scale in the tropical jungles of South America.
The Egyptian Pyramid is one of the eight wonders of the world. The site of the tower is chosen between the V-shaped cracks in the rocky area of the desert. It is located in the gravitational center of the continents of the earth. The meridian passing through the great pyramid divides the continents and oceans into equal halves.
The base of the Great Pyramid is square, and the four sides are facing the four directions of the southeast, northwest, and the deviation is only 0.015%. At the point of the golden ratio, the towers shared more than 2 million boulders, each of which was carefully crafted so that even the thinnest piece of paper could not be inserted into the cracks of the stone. The smallest stone weighed two and a half tons, making it difficult to reach hundreds of miles nearby. Find similar stones.
The sky garden is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. In the 6th century BC, Nebuchadnezzar II of the Kingdom of New Babylon built it in the city of Babylon for his homesick princess Amédith, who is no longer alive.
According to legend, the sky garden adopts a three-dimensional gardening technique. The garden is placed on a four-story platform, constructed of asphalt and bricks. The platform is supported by 25-meter-high pillars, with an irrigation system, and slaves are constantly pushing and connecting gears. The handles of the garden are planted with various flowers and trees, which look like a garden hanging in the air from a distance.
It is amazing that in the Babylonian literature, the Hanging Garden is always a mystery, and there is not even a mention of it.
Today’s exploration of the mystery of this latitude line is explained as that 30 degrees north latitude belongs to a temperate zone, the climate is suitable for ancient people to live, and there are large rivers, such as the Yangtze River, the Nile, etc., and their entrance to the sea formed a fertile plain nearby. , So human civilization develops in these places.
But so far, there are still many mysterious phenomena on this line that have not been reasonably explained. With the progress of society and the development of the times, science will undoubtedly solve the mystery of 30 degrees north latitude.
