Ancient Mayan Statue Sparks Curiosity – Is It Really a QR Code?

There’s a new theory making waves on the internet: The Mayans might have crafted QR codes millennia before modern technology could decipher them.

The buzz started when a video emerged showing what appears to be a Mayan statue bearing an uncanny resemblance to a QR code, looking like something straight from a Black Mirror episode.

The question arises – were the Mayans technologically prescient or is this statue a modern fabrication?

Numerous content creators have weighed in. Notably, Meeko TV, a YouTube channel, posited that this artifact was discovered in Mayan ruins during expeditions to learn more about the civilization’s daily life.

Furthering the intrigue, they highlighted: “Experts have already proven that it hasn’t been meddled with and that this is a real ancient artefact that the Mayans used to pray to.”

However, the channel’s next assertion raised some eyebrows: “There are a lot of experts out there that believe that this is actually meant to be a message from aliens all along, one that has been passed down to the Mayans only for us to come across it eventually.”

Attempting to decode the mystery, some tried scanning this ‘ancient QR code’, but to no avail.

Visually comparing the statue to a QR code, it’s hard to deny certain similarities, notably the four corner squares and the central script, which many think represents a link.

Delving into the significance, Meeko TV hypothesized: “Could it be some sort of a warning? Many believe so as the Mayans were very popular for their incredible predictions of disasters.”

Commenters also chimed in. One humorously noted: “Well obviously they can’t be bothered to write down the link and then have to type it in every time.” Another jestingly shared: “it got me Dominos pizza discount”, a claim most of us would find delightful if true.

Yet, as with all mysteries, skeptics have their say. An investigator from proposed a less fantastical theory – suggesting that the ‘ancient’ QR code, when transcribed, links to ‘Altech Mexico’, implying it might be a modern promotional stunt from an electronics company.

So, is this statue a testament to Mayan ingenuity, a clever marketing ploy, or just a whimsical creation from a contemporary art class? The debate rages on. What’s your take on it?
