"In my work, I came across visually similar schemes. For example, the acoustic delay line may look like this. And let it sound to you like a fantasy, but I suppose that the extraterrestrial mind could leave in the distant past on our planet a biological energy concentrator. Why not?"
A member of the Cosmopoisk group, Sergei Frolov, suggested exploring the find at the Center for Collective Use of Nanotechnology from the Research Institute of Nanotechnologies and New Materials of the South Russian State Technical University (Novocherkassk Polytechnic Institute). As always science put an end to the discussions.
The answer from the Institute was:
A sample measuring 15 x 11 x 4.5 cm in gray-brown color, with a polished area, is an organogenic material that consists of fragments of skeletons of sea lilies (crinoids) and a subordinate number of small round shell flaps with a size of up to 1 cm. " Thus, the scientists were confidently diagnosed as a fragment of crinoid limestone. And according to the representatives of the Central Geological Expedition (Yessentuki) and taking into account the place of the find in the Laba River basin, they determined the supposed geochronological age - the Silurian-Devonian, that is, 410-450 million years. The very fragment of the stem of the lily is represented on the specimen along the stem itself in the axial section. "
In scientific terms, marine lilies (Crinoidea) - one of the classes of echinoderms belong to the number of ancient groups that have long experienced a period of greatest prosperity. A total of about 1,500 species of fossils are known from 220 genera. They were widespread in the Paleozoic (Palaeocrinoidea) and Mesozoic (Neocrinoidea) seas, where they lived in shallow water.
Everything converges. After all, in the water area of our region in the ancient times the Tethys was splashing. It is sometimes called the Sarmatian Sea. Today we built whole cities on its bottom. And this letter-capsule of time came to us not just from the depths of centuries, but also from the receding waters. And from the received document of the Center for Nanotechnology, we also learned that in the Paleozoic all the sea lilies were attached, in the Mesozoic, forms without a stem appeared and passed to plankton and pseudoplankton life. In other genera the stem was short, and could reach several meters. The skeletons of lilies after death were usually scattered into separate elements. Today, most often there are segments of lilies, and their clusters form crinoid limestones.
Alexander Lopatin, manager. Department of Archeology of the Armavir Museum of Local Lore shared information about the discovery period.
"In the area of the city of Armavir there are simply unique finds of antiquity. Such as the remains of the vertebrae and the extremities of the seal. Today they are stored in the storerooms and exhibited in the halls of the local museum.
We closely cooperate with the Institute of Geology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. Together with A. Tesakov's expedition about five years ago in the area of the river Urup we discovered the skeleton of a dolphin. Once raging here the ocean then broke up into the seas: Black, Azov, Caspian and Aral. And the dried up bottom still surprises us today in the form of unique finds. In the halls of our museum you can see corals, remnants of sea urchins, colonies of petrified worms. They are from 200 to 400 million years old. This collection was formed and replenished with new copies from the 70s of the last century.
When it turned out that this is a fragment of a lily - the real reality did not upset Alexander Burlutsky and the members of the Russian Geographical Society, because the trace of a living organism is also very interesting! And the fact that the discovery came to the hands of the researchers, which for about 400 million years and made it possible to touch the times when the Caucasus Mountains were born, the landscape changed, the Tethys Sea changed its position, spreading over three seas, and about humanity for that period nothing is known to science, shocked the imagination and so we really looked in the period before the birth of mankind.
