The Dropa Stones were first discovered in 1938, when a archaeological expedition led by Chi Pu Tei, stumbled across a cave high in the mountains that border China and Tibet
It was obvious to the archaeologists that the cave had been occupied by primitive people from long ago.
On the walls of the caves were carved pictograms of the heavens and earth: the sun, the moon, the stars, and the earth, each connected with lines.
Then came the most incredible discovery, half-buried beneath the floor of the cave was an odd stone disk, which was approximately nine inches in diameter and three quarters of an inch thick. In the center was a perfect 3/4″ hole, with a fine grrove spiralling out from the center, resembling that of an old phonograph record.
A total of, 716 plates were found, and each held a secret. The groove on further inspection was a continuous line of strange carved hieroglyphic writing.
Dr. Tsum Um Nui, in 1962, had the enormously difficult task of transcribing the character from the disks to paper.
He estimated that they were at least 12,000 years old, with writing so small he had to use a magnifying glass to see it clearly, much of the writing had worn away, but he was so puzzled at how these primitive people could of fashioned these stones , and how they managed the almost microscopic writing.
Eventually he made progress and a word emerged, then another, and another until an entire sentence, he had broken the code!
Dr. Tsum Um Nui, discovered that the stones were written by a people who called themselves, the “Dropa” , but what he was reading 12,000 years later did not make sense to him.
However, when he had finished his translation, he wrote up a paper on his findings and presented it to the University for publication, however the reaction that he encountered was not what he expected.
The Academy of Prehistory expressly forbade him to publish or even speak about his findings. The world, the Academy decided, would not know about the “Dropa” and their fateful journey to Earth!
The 716 disc plates, tells the story of the, Dropa being a space probe from a distant planet that crash-landed in the Baian-Kara-Ula Mountains of the Himalayas.
The occupants of the spacecraft, the Dropa, found refuge in a caves of the mountains, and further tell how they were unable to repair their disabled spacecraft, leaving them unable to return to their home planet, becoming stranded on earth.
Why did the Academy of Prehistory forbid Dr. Tsum Um Nui, from publishing his paper on the transcriptions from the 716, ancient plates?
