(ORDO NEWS) — In the annals of 1969, within the vicinity of the village of Rzhavchik in the Tisul region, a peculiar incident transpired during coal mining operations that would soon be etched into the enigmatic pages of history.
At the heart of this astonishing tale was an inexplicable coffin housing a seemingly youthful woman, appearing as if in the throes of slumber. Scientists have since embarked on a quest to unravel the mysteries shrouding this enigmatic discovery, and their findings have led them to an astonishing revelation: the age of this mysterious woman is believed to stretch back approximately 800 million years.
Remarkably, this saga remains conspicuously absent from the hallowed pages of the scientific press. Official science appears to shy away from the enigma of the “Tisul princess,” perhaps driven by an inherent reluctance to confront the perplexing implications of unearthing a human burial encased within coal deposits, an age dating back millions of years. Nevertheless, the dearth of scientific discourse should not be mistaken for the absence of this astonishing discovery.
The journey to this bewildering revelation commenced on September 5, 1969, with the report of an astonishing find reaching Alexander Malygin, the head of the coal mine’s section. Malygin, a seasoned miner well-acquainted with the tales circulating among miners regarding the discovery of inexplicable artifacts within coal seams, promptly halted all mining activities. The prospect of finding an object within a coal seam whose age defied the very tenets of geological understanding was both tantalizing and disconcerting.
Coal miners have long whispered stories of encountering screws, chains, metal balls, and other seemingly artificial objects within ancient coal seams—items that should never logically find themselves in such geological strata. These tales have persisted, and every miner has secretly harbored the hope of one day making a similar extraordinary discovery. And now, in Rzhavchik, the discovery of an entire sarcophagus was poised to rewrite the rules of possibility.
Malygin, recognizing the momentous nature of the find, promptly halted all mining activities, facilitating the extraction of the sarcophagus from a depth of 70 meters to the surface. He urgently summoned the local authorities, anxious to relay news of this unprecedented discovery.
The sight that met their eyes was beyond comprehension. Within the sarcophagus lay a young woman, her visage untouched by the ravages of time. Her appearance was that of one in peaceful repose, swathed in a snow-white lace, transparent dress adorned with multicolored embroidered flowers. Curiously, she lacked undergarments, further mystifying the scene.
To onlookers, she appeared not as the deceased, but as one locked in a tranquil slumber. At the head of the bed, a black, rectangular metal box, with one end gently rounded, akin to a modern-day cell phone, measuring approximately 25 by 10 cm, rested.
News of this discovery quickly spread throughout the village, drawing the entire populace to witness this extraordinary spectacle. Amidst the gathering crowd, discussions arose, imbued with a sense of concern. Speculations regarding the potential intervention of city dwellers to claim the discovery for themselves led to murmurs of unease among the villagers.
Worried about being left empty-handed, bereft of knowledge about the contents, someone fetched a crowbar to pry open the sarcophagus.
The process of prying open the sarcophagus proved swift. Under the influence of air and light, the putty sealing the sarcophagus began to liquefy. One daring individual scooped up a drop of the substance on their finger, tasted it, and immediately recoiled in disgust.
Astonishingly, this brief contact with the substance marked the onset of a harrowing descent into mental instability for the individual, culminating in a stark, bewildered figure pressed against their house wall, struggling to locate their own door.
News of the discovery reached the regional center with great urgency. High-ranking officials, firefighters, the military, and law enforcement officers converged on the site in significant numbers. By 2 p.m., a brick-red helicopter descended upon the scene, bearing a dozen eminent individuals dressed in civilian attire. They swiftly declared the location as contagious and ordered all present to vacate the vicinity.
Subsequently, they cordoned off the area, prompting everyone who had come into contact with the coffin, or even those in proximity, to undergo what was purported to be an urgent medical examination. The officials then meticulously transferred the sarcophagus into the helicopter.
However, the weight of their burden posed a challenge, compelling them to lighten the load by removing the liquid within. As the liquid was drained, the corpse within began a startling transformation, darkening right before the eyes of the stunned witnesses.
Promptly, the liquid was reintroduced, causing the blackened pallor to dissipate, while a natural flush of vitality returned to the deceased’s cheeks, imbuing her with a life-like semblance. The sarcophagus was subsequently sealed and loaded onto the helicopter. The remaining putty and surrounding earth were carefully collected in plastic bags, and those present were instructed to disperse. The helicopter ascended and set course for Novosibirsk.
Five days later, an elderly professor arrived in Rzhavchik, hailing from Novosibirsk. He delivered a lecture at the village club, unveiling the preliminary findings from laboratory examinations of the recent discovery. The professor proclaimed that this rust-encrusted relic harbored the potential to revolutionize our very comprehension of history. Profoundly, the professor asserted that the age of the interred woman exceeded 800 million years.
Intriguingly, the woman had been laid to rest during the Carboniferous period of the Paleozoic era—millions of years preceding the advent of dinosaurs, an epoch where, by contemporary understanding, Earth remained a verdant realm, untamed by animal life. The original coffin, encasing the woman’s form, had rested within a wooden crypt deep within an ancient forest.
As the eons unfurled, the crypt became ensconced within the earth, gradually succumbing to the inexorable passage of time. Over countless millennia, it transformed into an impenetrable coal seam. While some entertained exotic theories of extraterrestrial origin, genetic analysis swiftly quelled such speculation, revealing the woman to possess an astonishing 100 percent similarity to a modern Russian individual.
Astoundingly, our kinship with our distant ancestors persisted across the vast chasm of 800 million years. Furthermore, the fabric comprising the “princess’s” dress defied scientific analysis, leaving experts flummoxed by the technology underpinning its creation—an achievement yet to be replicated by modern science.
The composition of the pink-blue liquid, regrettably, remained shrouded in mystery, with only isolated elements linked to ancient varieties of onions and garlic ascertained.
Concerning the metallic box, the professor offered only a tantalizing hint, suggesting that research into this enigmatic artifact was ongoing. Having imparted this extraordinary knowledge, the professor departed, leaving the village abuzz with curiosity and intrigue.
However, within a matter of days, the village found itself under the scrutiny of individuals clad in gray suits. These newcomers dismissed the professor as a mere dreamer and took swift action against the newspaper responsible for publishing this astonishing account, subjecting the editor to severe repercussions.
They proceeded to traverse the village, methodically confiscating copies of the “seditious” newspaper, employing financial inducements and, where necessary, intimidation through the district police officer to achieve their goal.
Faced with this concerted effort, dissent gradually waned. However, unbeknownst to the authorities, stalwart defenders of truth persisted among the villagers. One valiant soul pursued every avenue available, even penning a letter to the Central Committee of the CPSU.
Tragically, a year later, this fervent champion of truth met an untimely end, the official account citing heart failure as the cause of death. As the passage of time unfolded, the remaining witnesses to the original discovery fell into an enduring silence.
The year 1973 witnessed a covert excavation on the shores and islands of Lake Berchikul, located a mere 6 kilometers from the initial sarcophagus revelation. The clandestine nature of this operation became apparent as soldiers and law enforcement personnel cordoned off the area. This operation was meant to remain a closely guarded secret, but as the saying goes, “You can’t hide an awl in a sack.”
The villagers, consumed by curiosity, yearned to learn the truth, yet the formidable presence of military personnel and the stern warning issued by an officer dispatched to the village council effectively dissuaded them from venturing beyond the established cordon.
Nevertheless, in a moment of indiscretion, a few laborers from the excavation site, perhaps emboldened by alcohol, ventured into Rzhavchik. It was during this unguarded moment that one of them inadvertently divulged the existence of three additional sarcophagi.
The ensuing expedition unfolded throughout the summer and well into the autumn, leaving in its wake a vast, furrowed expanse. However, this time, the authorities refrained from sharing the findings with the residents of Rzhavchik. It remains uncertain when, or even if, the world will come to know the revelations concealed within these hidden sarcophagi.
