Seydozero in parascience
According to some writers of science fiction and UFO, one of the alleged existence of places Hyperborean civilization. unknown Searchers learn these places since 1922. That’s when the expedition went here Alexander Barchenko – physician, occultist, and a number of certificates, OGPU, which is seriously interested in a variety of psychic phenomena, in particular the Arctic meryacheniem or psychosis cases which have been marked and the Kola Peninsula. The expedition discovered a number of artifacts on the basis of which Barchenko and made a statement about the discovery of Hyperborea. The hypothesis found many opponents, among them was Academician Alexander Fersman, who was involved in the study and exploration of the area.
In 1938 Barchenko was executed as an enemy of the people and the search for Hyperborea temporarily stopped. They were resumed in 1997 through the efforts of Valery Demin – Doctor of Philosophy, who organized a new expedition Seydozero “in the footsteps” Barchenko. Some of the findings of the expedition Barchenko have not been found, but there were new discoveries. For a more detailed study of and search for new artifacts Demin organized a new expedition in 1998 and 2001, involving a large number of specialized techniques and various experts, from specialists in geophysics and experienced divers to explore the bottom of the lake to psychics.
New searches Demina stopped after death, and not leaving behind any tangible scientific evidence of the existence of Hyperborea. But Seydozero has gained national and even international fame. Every year, here are sent to thousands of tourists who want to see the artifacts. In particular, the well-known image Kuiv, rock which is on the shore of the lake. I still do not cease debate – expeditions found objects is in truth the remains of some ancient civilization, or they created by nature itself?
Kuiva – the character of Sami mythology, the legendary giant, living in Lovozero tundra (in other locations this character is unknown, legends about him as popular in this area). Also Kuiva – Sadie rock sacred to the local Saami, a reminder of the place of “resting” giant.
In ancient times, the ancestors of the Sami came into the valley Lovozero Tundra and met the evil giant Kuiv who attacked them. There was a large (by the standards of the Sami – it could be a few dozen or even a dozen) battle Kuiva took the upper hand, killing people and creating various abominations. Then Sami called on their gods, they saw the consequences uchinёnnogo Kuiv pogrom, angry and struck him with lightning. The big man turned into a rock, began to Sejdiu, retaining its gigantic size.
Kuiva in other legends and reality
In one of the legends Kuiva appears in the form of “Sveta” – troll or giant, together with accomplices attacked a Sami overlaid them tribute, but then driven into a trap as a result of the uprising “old men” (in Sami folklore, not to talk about the bear, as well as a shaman).
There is another legend, where Kuiva is not a troll, a leader Chudinov, Sami enemies who came from the south and plundered the falls. In this legend Kuiva one stroke kills several people. Perhaps somewhere in the vicinity of the rock it has been a successful Kuiv Sami historic battle with some enemies.
With Kuiv also related motive “saamaskoy (Lapp) blood”, “blood of our elderly” – supposedly painted in red, some revered stones in Lovozero tundra.
