So the obvious question here is, why would they go to so much effort?It is logical to assume that the importance of these stone discs may be connected to their god or gods.Ching Shih (or Zheng Shi) was a Chinese prostitute who became a powerful female pirate, controlling the infamous Red Flag Fleet.The fleet grew under her command, with expanding reserves of loot, and...I propose a compromise: prevailing theory is right, the Hongshan and Liangzhu cultures had no metal tools with which to work the discs..yet the discs made using metal tools, as the discs themselves suggest. The discs were relics of a much more ancient, more advanced culture, lost long before the Hongshu period but remembered and revered by them as a "time of the gods"..at some point they found a great cache of these discs, so important people came to be buried each with a single disc to associate themselves with those gods, or perhaps even serve as a key or pass into the place of the gods. Apparently, this grid is much less active in modern times except for some ley lines. Apparently, it worked on a similar principle to Japan's maglev train.
The tomb of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, despite being involved in one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all times, endures as a mystery to archaeologists and historians as...
The Smithsonian Institute shows a great interest in Jade Discs and has invested a lot into researching them.
Currently, they hold a collection of more then 150 of the disks.
In ancient China, dating back to at least 5,000 BC, large stone discs were placed on the bodies of Chinese aristocrats.
Their original function still eludes scientists, as does the way in which they were made, considering they were carved out of Jade, an extremely hard rock.
Given the hardness of the stone, Jade is an extremely difficult material to work with, which makes it perplexing as to why the ancient Neolithic inhabitants of China chose this stone.
