The third millernium magnetite
The Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus
wrote in the 6th century B.C. that according to Aristotle, the
magnetic stones have a soul because they can move and tighten iron.
They where named from the ancient Greek "lithos magnes», as Pliny
explained in his “Naturalis Historia” (77 a.D.), after the shepherd
Magnes on Mount Ida, who dug the ground to find what was attracting
his iron stock and the nails in his shoe around 900 BC. The
Gargarians, now called the Chechens, then lived on the highest peak
of that mount Ida, while the Dactyles, now called the Ingushetians,
lived at the foot of the same mountain.
Three millenniums after Magnes discovered
the magnetite, Soviet scientists lifted the mystery of how some
Caucasians people could live 150 years, when most people rarely
lived more than 50 years. They discovered that the magnetite in
their mountains can double the life expectancy of all living beings
; that the fish swimming in magnetized water are bigger than those
living in plane water and that plantations watered with magnetized
water provides 30% more crop than those watered by plane water. The
continuation of their researches enabled them to create the magnetic
fields at the origin of the storms of rain that has covered the land
of the Arabs with meadows and rivers.
