Although some prehistoric events exist in the form of folklore or myth, they have factual basis. Underwater archaeological surveys of the Black Sea have found that the Century Flood recorded in the Bible has factual basis. Although there is no accurate written record of Dayu governs water , the fact of this myth is generally considered to be an ancient flood control. So, a myth that is more ancient than Dayu s water control—is there such a factual basis as Nuowa Butian ? Wang Ruobai, a researcher at the First Monitoring Center of the China Earthquake Administration, proposed that the myth of Nuwa Butian actually May be a meteorite rain disaster in ancient times. What is the basis for this statement?
Through a lot of research, scientists have found that the special landform of the Baiyangdian Basin was left by a large meteorite rain in the middle and late Holocene.
When they researched the historical landforms of the Baiyangdian Basin, they found that from Renqiu and Hejian to Baoding and Wangdu, they extended north-westward to Wanxian and Mancheng. There were a large number of special landforms—disc Shaped depressions and their groups. How did this dish-shaped depression form?
Using straight topographic maps and aerial photographs published nearly a century ago, they used computer digital technology DTM to strip away modern terrain and artificial ground layers, retaining only the original natural landscape. After comparing the restoration map of this depression with the meteorite impact craters in other regions at home and abroad with similar ages, it was found that the dish depressions in the Baiyangdian area and their groups were prehistoric large-scale meteorite rain impacts, leaving them on the modern alluvial plain Ruins.
Study of modern meteorite impact based on geological and geomorphological methods, they speculated that the impact occurred in a very wide area, from northern Jin to Jizhong, and may even extend to the vicinity of the Bohai Bay. It happened at a prehistoric time, most likely between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago.
I speculated that the scene was that a small comet entered Earth s orbit, rushed into the atmosphere over the northwest of the mountain and exploded at high altitude. In a very short period of time, it fell into the vast area from northern Jin to Jizhong, forming a large-scale meteorite rain. A large number of impact pits were formed in the plain area. After the erosion of the surface water and the transformation of the ancestors, a number of larger impact pit groups eventually formed Baiyangdian. The remaining smaller ones formed stagnant depressions, which gradually became the main settlements in the area. Some of these depressions were destroyed by surface water erosion, but a large number of impact pit remains remained on the high ground between the riverbeds— disc-shaped depression .
The earliest record of the son-in-law s replenishment was Huainanzi and Lan Ming Xun. This is how the myth of the son-in-law complementing the sky in these two works is discussed. In ancient times, the four poles are waste, the Kyushu is split, the sky is not both, and the earth is not full; the fire is refining and the flames are not extinguished, and the water is vast. In other words, the sky is cracking, the fire is burning, and the flood is flooding. Flooding, birds foul, beasts run rampant. While the people were crying and grieving, a goddess named son-in-law came forward. She refined five-colored stones to fill the sky, and cut off Ao was enough to set up four poles, kill the black dragon to Jijizhou, and accumulate ash. This has overcome this major natural disaster.
The wonderful description in this article should be the entire process of a large-scale meteorite rain impact. Four poles waste, Kyushu fissure, the sky is not both, and the earth is not loaded. It is a large-scale meteorite rain formed after the explosion of a small celestial body; Inflammable and immortal is a huge impact, explosion, and subsequent fire on the ground; if a small celestial body is a comet, its composition is mainly meteorite, and a large amount of surface water will form after the meteorite melts. Shui Haoyang never stopped . The killing of the black dragon is to Jijizhou, and the accumulation of reeds and ash ends. Cangtianbu, the four poles are positive, solid, Jizhouping, the worms die, and the people s livelihood. Myths were compiled during the Eastern Han Dynasty based on ancient legends. Of course, Jizhou should be ancient The area around Hebei Province, that is to say, this paragraph describes the scene of the Hebei Plain after the disaster subsided.
The impact of a scourge of alien objects may cause huge damage, the most important of which is the impact on the paleoclimate. Researchers say that Quaternary geologists have studied the Holocene climate changes and found that there have been several important cooling events. The period of the Holocene during the Holocene around 8500 to 3000 was an important stage in the development of Neolithic ancient human civilization, but this period was also a period of drastic climate fluctuations. Among them, a cooling event more than 4,000 years ago, which was called the Little Ice Age, had a huge impact. This time is also the most important moment in the development of the Chinese language. Many scholars attach great importance to this issue. The well-known geologist Academician Liu Dongsheng and others used the high- resolution analysis of environmental evolution? A time scale of 10 to 100 years? To study the Holocene paleoenvironment and other issues. During the period from 4800 to 4,200, there was a cooling event. The result of the event Caused the change of ancient culture. It is believed that the sudden decline of Hongshan culture and the trough of small riverside culture development in Mongolia, Liaoning and Hebei regions may be related to this incident.
In recent years, archaeology has clear evidence that the remains of the myth of the goddess Nüwa and Nübu Tian mainly exist in Shanxi and Hebei. The geographical distribution of these relics is located near the south and west of the impact area he proposed, and this impact corresponds to the results of paleoclimate research. The cooling events between 480 and 4200 are the impact of meteorite rain. This cooling event was triggered.
The reason why the Baibaiyangdian area left a vacant area of ancient culture in the late Neolithic period, a reasonable explanation is that there was a huge disaster here.
Research This study is not only consistent in time with Holocene cooling events proposed by paleoenvironment experts, but also coincides with the geographical gap of the ancient plains of Hebei Plain proposed by historical geographers.
The impact of the natural environment on early human development is extremely important. The boundaries of various cultural areas are often the boundaries of the natural geographical environment. However, when they studied this issue, they found that the middle part of the Hebei Plain, that is, the Baiyangdian area is neither a mountain range nor a desert distribution. It should be a lake and valley area that is very suitable for the survival and reproduction of ancient humans. In the late Stone Age, an empty area of ancient culture was left. Archeological studies have shown that the late Neolithic culture, which is equivalent to the Yangshao cultural era, is very scarce, and the later Longshan cultural relics are almost blank. In fact, the book Physical Geography of China, Historical Physical Geography , has already proposed, Whether it is the Neolithic Age or the Shang and Zhou Dynasties to the Spring and Autumn Period, there is a vast expanse of empty settlements in the ce ntral Hebei Plain. area . The famous historical geographer Tan Qichen also pointed out that the Hebei Plain is a deserted landscape.
In fact, research on Chinese civilization Xia, Shang, and Zhou also confirmed this. The ancient cultural vacancies circled according to the historical maps of the vassal states during the Spring and Autumn Period compiled based on the historical documents Spring and Autumn and Zuo Zhuan completely coincide with the collision zones delineated by the above historical geomorphological methods. This is obviously not accidental, this area is mainly the Baiyangdian Basin and the range extending northwest and southeast. It shows that the economic and cultural development of this area is much later than the surrounding areas, and a more reasonable explanation is the deterioration of the geographical environment caused by huge disasters. It is even more likely to be the trauma of the antecedents and the taboos caused by it.
This disaster is a meteorite impact event. After the imminent impact of the disaster, a large number of people were killed and relocated, which interrupted the flourishing ancient culture there. In the years after the disaster, new ancient cultures have gradually formed. This calamity has gone through generations of legends, and a beautiful myth, Nuowa Butian was born.
