Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of The World

The world has made major advancements today. Whether it is the field of technology, science, medicine, arts or commerce, he has got almost everything in the world under his control.

Despite so many researches by scientists and experts, there have been certain unexplained phenomena which we call as unexplained mysteries.

Let us have a look at the top 10 unsolved mysteries of the world.

1. Crop Circles

A crop circle is basically a sizable pattern created by the flattening of a crop such as wheat, barley, rye, maize, or rapeseed. During the last 20 years, crop circles have evolved into complex geometric shapes, like the DNA double helix or the nautilus shell.

In  1966, an Australian sugarcane farmer reported the first-ever crop circle, claiming to see a saucer-shaped spaceship rise up from a swamp before flying away. Arguments are going between scientists that whether such crop circles are because of extra-terrestrial forces or a hoax by some people.

2. The Pyramids of Egypt

The pyramids of Giza in Egypt really are mysterious. Still, we don’t know how the Egyptians built the largest pyramid of all, known as the Great Pyramid of Cheops (or Khufu), some 5,000 years ago even before the invention of the wheel.

This particular pyramid is the size of a 40-storey building. Hence, lifting rocks from the ground to such great heights remains an unexplained fact.

3. Sasquatch: The Bigfoot

There have been claims by people, particularly the ones residing in Northern America, of seeing the comic character in real. It is an ape-like creature, between 6-10 feet tall weighing more than 500 pounds, and covered in dark brown or reddish hair.

People who claim to have witnessed him give him large eyes, a heavy brow ridge and a crested head, much like a male gorilla. Teams of scientists continue to seek out photo evidence which is also thin on the ground.

4. UFOs and Area 51

A UFO is as an apparent anomaly in the sky that is not readily identifiable as any known object or phenomenon by visual observation or use of associated instrumentation such as radar. They were referred to popularly as flying saucers or flying discs.

The first reported UFO sighting happened in Texas in 1878, when a local farmer reported seeing a large, dark, circular flying object. UFO conspiracy theories centre around Area 51 in Nevada (north of Las Vegas).

5. The Belmez Faces

In 1971, in the small Spanish village of Belmez, Maria Pereira claimed a human face spontaneously appeared on her cement kitchen floor. It wasn’t long before she destroyed the floor and replaced it – and a new face promptly appeared.

Some were male, some female, some large, and some small. In time, she discovered that the house, built around 1830, apparently stood above a graveyard.

6. The Out of Body Experience

An ‘Out of Body Experience’ is defined by your awareness being transferred beyond your physical body. Many people claim to experience it while practising lucid dreaming techniques.

According to Ati, OBE’s are not at all paranormal. Rather, they’re more like a hallucination that is most likely caused by a perturbed brain that for some reason can’t compute the different flows of sensory information.

7. The Mayan 2012 Prophecy

This is the most talked-about mystery in the last few years. The theory is based on the idea that when the ancient Mayans plotted our position in the Milky Way, they created a special astrological calendar.

And on the Winter Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere) in 2012, the Earth would pass into a new astrological phase and something dramatic would happen.

8. Stonehenge
