Archeology is a discipline whose main goal is to find out, based on the finds, who and how they lived in different ages. It is the scientific approach that gives them an excuse to desecrate graves, but few people other than the man on the Earth understand that first time around. Also, it is the scientific approach that in the vast majority of cases completely misinterprets. For the archaeologists' logical conclusions are based on the world of today, i.e. the people of old thought as the people of today do. But the old people thought in a completely different way and made frequent use of symbolism, which is very difficult for people today to understand.
If I were to occupy, say, America, and I had to explain it to an ancient man, a drawing would be made of an Amtrak-bodied creature in a baseball suit with my head. If this drawing were found by an archaeologist, what would he conclude? What would experts in ancient astronautics conclude that a man from the future had conducted a super-genetic experiment in the past? Even the man of the Middle Ages was very different, expressing himself in a very different way. Well, even the ancients, let alone, say, a completely different civilisation. Today, ancient Egypt is the cool, but maybe thanks to LIDAR it will be the South American Indians, because as soon as we started to look under the jungle trees, it was an amazing sight for the man of today.
Let's look at the big mysteries. What did they use to light the inside of the pyramids if no traces of smoke were found on the walls? What about the artefacts that don't fit into the frames? What if there are aspects to consider for which there is no direct evidence? What if the answers crossed the boundaries of science and esotericism? What if the people of old did not live as much in the outside world as we do today and had much wider options than we now assume? In that case, archaeology remains a science, i.e. it cannot go beyond the limits of proof.
Anyone who has read what is called esoteric literature will have come across the name of Pharaoh Ethnaton. I describe this as called esoteric literature because something can only be esoteric if you examine yourself within yourself. Since people are at different levels of dimension and consciousness, they will have different perspectives. You will never correctly interpret a higher perspective at a lower perspective, i.e. a modern archaeologist will never understand the ancient high priest, just as the ancient high priest will never understand quantum physics. If an ancient high priest uses magic to protect a tomb and it is opened by a modern man who absolutely does not believe in such things, the magic may well not work. For the first law of the holographic world is 'what you believe is what you have'. While others are dying of some disease and here a theoretical question arises as to who or what created the viruses, which are not really living beings but rather programs. What if the viruses were created in such a way that a powerful magician with a mind with creative powers let loose an Intention that somehow materialized. If a modern day scientist started explaining to the high priest what viruses are and how they work, the high priest would consider it completely useless knowledge, just as you wouldn't care if someone started explaining how LED TVs work because you just want to watch them.
Returning to the Pharaoh of Ethnaton, his accession to the throne would be incomprehensible to modern eyes, the rumour goes that the god Thoth simply walked up to the previous Pharaoh and persuaded him to appoint this extraterrestrial figure rather than his intended successor. But this required the pharaoh to acknowledge that the man walking in front of him was the equal of the god Thoth, which was not as hopeless as it would be today, and it required the pharaoh himself to do it. What we know about Ethnaton is that he suddenly introduced drastic changes, the implication of which is that he wanted to implant the collective cellular memory of ancient Egypt into the world of today. Nobody understood him and he was not very popular, several attempts were made to kill him, but they failed. However, he is mentioned as a positive figure in the eso books. A team of archaeologists excavated in the capital of Pharaoh Ethnaton and found something strange when examining bones found in the tombs of the middle class. It turns out that they were a malnourished people who suffered from a variety of diseases, while other finds show that the pharaoh offered a huge amount of sumptuous food to the god Aton every day. That is why it is good that evidence-based archaeological science exists, otherwise we would simply believe what we read in books that someone received personally through his own spiritual channel in his own perspective and shared it with others, which then lived on as knowledge reaching the present day. Where it is believed by people who have no way to verify the claim. Or they do if they watch documentary channels about it.
