The video discusses the ancient city of Teotihuacan, its connection to the Mexican Drug War, and the importance of the site for worship and ritual.

  • 00:00:00 The video discusses the significance of Teotihuacan, one of the most significant and prosperous cities in Mesoamerica during the Pre-Columbian era. The city was divided into four sections based on a cosmogony of the universe. Teotihuacan also had a complex urban planning scheme that was revealed through its architecture. The city never had a royal tomb, indicating that its government was more based on corporativism and multi-ethnicity than on a hereditary monarchy.
  • 00:05:00 This video discusses the possible existence of a "cogobernantes" or ruling class in ancient Teotihuacan, Mexico. It describes the various symbols associated with this group of elites, and argues that their collapse may have been due to internal strife.
  • 00:10:00 The Teotihuacan ruins in Mexico are home to a god known for escaping and being feared, one of the figures tutelary of Teotihuacan city that the Mexicas found abandoned and attributed to the gods. Teotihuacan included neighborhoods with very different origins, migrants from Oaxaca Veracruz and Tikal finding there a territory to unite in without losing their differences. This barrio, which corresponds to a very select group of people, has a temple dedicated to it with an administrative function, and beyond that we have artisanal and domestic complexes. This altar, which resembles a small pyramid, is located in the middle of a street and offerings were made to the gods here as well as to the deity worshipped here, the patron deity of this family unit complex. All the other temples were distributed and we have here the original coloration. These motifs are very early and correspond to about 200 of our era. They have a close relationship with cultures from the Gulf of Mexico, this symbol being very early in that timeline. They are also referring to water, as shown by the caracoles here, and marine creatures, such as crabs, here. This is a reconstruction of the original temple, which is now original again. All we
  • 00:15:00 The Teotihuacan ruins are home to some of the most intricate and beautiful murals in the world. The language depicted in these murals has been a mystery for centuries, but recent discoveries suggest that it may be a form of Mayan. The sculptures and architecture found at Teotihuacán are also a testament to the complex culture of this ancient civilization.
  • 00:20:00 Teotihuacan is a very well-preserved ancient city in central Mexico, and one of the most impressive examples of ancient architecture. Jorge Acosta, an archaeologist and architectural historian, has recreated the layout of the city's most famous buildings using archaeological data. Among the findings at Teotihuacan are unique iconographic representations of quetzals, profile views of snakes, and depictions of blood pools and skin in the canal system near the aposento sur (southwest). These findings suggest that the site was used for rituals involving sacrificial water, blood, and animal parts.
  • 00:25:00 Teotihuacan was a major Mesoamerican city that was inhabited for centuries. The city was first explored in the 17th century by Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora, and later by other researchers. De Sigüenza y Góngora discovered that the city was connected to Spain and had a rich history. He also left the first written record of Teotihuacan, which helped other researchers explore the site more thoroughly. Teotihuacan was a major cultural and political center in the ancient Mesoamerican world, and its ruins still provide insight into the ancient Mesoamerican culture.
  • 00:30:00 In the 1980s, people living in the northeast sector of Teotihuacan saw how people of lower socioeconomic status lived in neighborhoods connected by tunnels. After studying the neighborhoods, they realized that these settlements were built on a system of tunnels extending throughout the north sector of the valley. In 1971, a dog got lost in one of these tunnels and its owner followed it. They found and excavated an entrance to a deep shaft, which proved to be the first evidence of a pyramid at Teotihuacan. Later, when the city was no longer as structured, this tunnel system became an important tool for archaeologists excavating the city's ruins. This tunnel was used to transport building materials for the construction of Teotihuacan's 20 kilometer-long temple. It is important to study the behavior of particles in order to determine the thickness of the walls of a building, as this information is essential for investigating if the pyramid of the sun contains chambers that could house offerings or tombs. While descending the pyramid, sound waves from the cosmos transport us along with them. There are dozens of tunnels in the north sector of Teotihuacan, but this one in particular had a symbolic value because it is below the temple of the state deity. So, without a doubt
  • 00:35:00 The Teotihuacan ruins contain an elaborate ceremonial center, known as the Túnel of the Moon and Sun, which was built in the first century of the Christian era. The construction of the tunnel precedes the final completion of the pyramid, because the last body was constructed in the Tlamimilolpa period, around two hundred and three hundred fifty years ago. It is possible that the grotto where ceremonies were performed and had a ritual significance remains below the pyramid, which is a way to care for and protect it. We, the keepers of the temple below, are also guardians of the underworld, no less. You will see flattened earth in these narrow spaces and then the space is again widened for walking. There are no footprints of humor or dirt because the ground is very porous. Additionally, water is constantly flowing from the mass of the pyramid through the porous ground because, unlike the pyramid, the moon and serpent emplumated pyramid are made of earth accumulated from fields of cultivated material, which was burned during the material-forming period. These stones here, which look worked canaletas to receive this water of filtration, are, in fact, measuring canals to receive this sacred water of the mother goddess.
  • 00:40:00 Archeologist Sergio Gomez has discovered a surprising tunnel that runs through the Teotihuacan plaza and leads to the temple of Quetzalcóatl. The tunnel was discovered during efforts to preserve the site, and will be important in understanding the origins of the tunnel and the significance of the site. The tunnel has a length of between 100 and 120 meters and may contain the remains of the city's rulers or characters.
  • 00:45:00 This YouTube video explains how Teotihuacan, an ancient city in present-day Mexico, was originally constructed with a tunnel system. The tunnel system allows for a better understanding of the original dimensions of the tunnel, which has not been expanded due to better working conditions. The marks on the tunnel's walls are seen as we move forward, revealing that it connects with the metro line 4. As we move further into the tunnel, we come to a cut, which are the same cuts that were mentioned in a previous video. We continue on in the metro, this time on the new preventive line, and as we go deeper, we find these walls. These are the remains of the same walls that were present at the beginning of the tunnel, and in many places, they are still intact and have been replaced with an outward-facing pavement. We can also see the footprints of the person who passed through the property, as well as the impressions left by their hand. We can see the remnants of the original flooring in some parts, and even see the rock crystal used in some of the objects. We come to the metro on line 55, and as we look around, we see something resembling a red wall. This is cinnabar, a mineral that
  • 00:50:00 The Teotihuacan ruins are a site of great archaeological interest because of the many unique and impressive structures found there. However, the future of Teotihuacan is shrouded in mystery because of its connection to the Mexican Drug War. At night, the sky over Teotihuacan is filled with stars as young men smoke marijuana and listen to guitars strumming in Mexico's traditional music. The Egyptian song, "Ain't Nobody," rings out in a shower of colorful lights that eventually fades away. One of the main purposes of the Teotihuacan site was to serve as a place of worship, and the ancient Mexicans placed importance on water and the earth. As the city's residents grow older, they often feel like they are barred from entering the site by the stones that surround it. You can find books on Teotihuacan in electronic form at the National Institute of Anthropology and History's website. Just enter your preferred Amazon Kindle or Barnes & Noble Nook store, and you'll be able to purchase and read them online. The institute also has a page dedicated to providing book recommendations for Kindle and Nook devices. You can visit the website at www.punto-difusión.gob
