37th Parallel “Pulsar Communication” Part 1

While investigating my Paranormal Highway of America theory, I noticed some very interesting ancient Native American sites are located on this parallel; the largest is Mesa Verde Cliff dwellings in Colorado. I started to wonder, why? Why would our ancient Native Americans build spiritual sites, or monoliths in very specific areas? The ancient Sumerians as with the ancient Mayans were phenomenal astronomers. Did they see something unique in the night sky which caused them to build at specific locations? UFOs or Star Travelers perhaps? Or maybe a combination of both?

Before the invention of the light bulb and before mass colonization of humans who congregated in villages using campfires, the night sky was pretty dark. But how dark was it?

The Bortle Dark-Sky Scale is a nine-level numeric scale that measures the night skies and star’s brightness compared with the naked eye. Class 1 or black night, is an extremely dark sky night, and Class 9 or white night, would be an inner city sky saturated by all the ambient light. At best today in a dark area we would be at a Class 2 or gray night which is considered a typical truly dark site.

Consider the ancient Native Americans, once they leave the campfires and smoke of their village, the sky would be at a Class 1, or black night. As mentioned before, the ancients were very good at star-gazing and noticed every detail of our solar system so well in fact, they could predict the shortest and longest days of the year. They were also very aware of what to expect to see at night and when something was different, like the Supernova of 1054 A.D. which was the creation of the Crab Nebula, they recorded that incident using rock art. One other thing they would notice in a black night sky would be a pulsating star, or Pulsar Star.

A Neutron Star or Pulsar, is a highly magnetized rotating star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation in a form of radio waves and light. This radiation or radio waves can only be observed when the beam of emission is pointing toward the Earth, or direct line of sight. In a Class 1 or black sky, you could actually see them pulse, not shimmer, but systematically like a clock second-hand. Millisecond pulsars are more precise than any atomic clock, but the Pulsars that pulse every few seconds or minutes might have been seen and recognized for their uniqueness compared to the other stars in their location.

I started thinking about Pulsar Stars. If an ancient human saw this over head or at zenith, would they think that a particular latitude would be unique and maybe worth building on?

I started looking at Astronomy’s Declination which directly coincides with Earth’s latitude. I then started searching for Pulsar Stars at Declination 37, which would be at the 37 degree latitude based upon my Paranormal Highway of America Theory.

Note: Pulsar Stars at zenith or over-head would not be observed continuously because the star is not in a geostationary orbit like our communication satellites. They would move in the direction of the constellations throughout the seasons, but at one point they would be directly overhead and the excellent astronomical observers of that time would be able to determine when to see it.

After finding that three Pulsar’s existed at the 37 degree latitude, I started looking for Pulsar Stars, and/or Neutron Stars, and compared their declination to the latitude of other interesting sites all around the world.

This is what I found.

locationsThe chart above shows which Pulsar Stars have the same astronomical declination and Earth’s latitude in red text. As you can see, there are many significant sites which have a Pulsar directly overhead!

Based also on the chart above I started thinking, “The electromagnetic waves of a Pulsar move across space at a certain number of repetitions, or cycles per second; the cycles per second are known as frequencies.” These frequencies or radio pulses can be picked up by radio telescopes and they can actually hear the pulsing sound, like a thump, thump, thump.

A Thought:

If a Pulsar Star’s pulse or radio frequency could be used as a carrier wave, then maybe a space modulator can be placed in a transmitter within a satellite in the direct path of a Pulsar Star’s pulse and encode the carrier wave with a specific signal. If it can, then a simple demodulator could decode the signal from the carrier wave at another location which would be in direct line of sight of the Pulsar’s pulse. Possibly on Earth?

Part 2 covers the Pulsar Communication Thought.
