Note satellite image of Fushon at Wiki: [link to en.wikipedia.org
] shows that the city is upriver from the seacoast and is in a mountainous region: “Fushun is a famous tourist centre in Northeast China. With high mountains and thick woods giving 40% forest coverage, the city has a developed strong tourist industry.”
It’s mountainous location supports the idea that the Ring of Life is a water-level measuring device which, in the event of a catastrophic permanent rise in sea level, may enable inhabitants to determine when the water will stop rising.
OK, I'm pretty interesting in why you think this ring structure is for water measurement? Why not just make a big tower with spars? Why such a complex shape, that any current can flow against and damage?
That's not a shoot down, I'm keen to know why, of all things you arrived at this conclusion. Its really cool.
Here's where I'm
comming from. Plenty of stuff written about the pyramids, especially the big fella, being used as water pumps.
To me, with a design and engineering back ground, a structure of this size is crazy inneficient for pumping water. The same can be achieved on so much smaller scale, is more mobile and can be replicated many times over. A pump just doesnt cut it.
But, with the woo woo I'm playing with, regards specific 'types' of water, especially that accumulating beneath the Antarctic ice sheets, which are not readily available to the average Joe, a special pump might explain it.
These huge devices might have been designed to draw out this particular type of water, giving the people who use the chambers everlasting life of sorts?
Back to your ring idea. It may well be a water indicator, but not necessarily a flood indicator in the present tense.
Can you elaborate a little? I'm all ears. (or eyes?)
