The Phaistos Disc was discovered on July 15, 1908 by the Italian archaeologist Luige Pernier in an excavation of a Minoan palace of Phaistos, Crete. Currently, the disc is under the trusteeship of the Heraklion Museum , Crete.
The result of the work of researcher Barbara Gagliano is recorded in the book "The Phaistos's disc, Key of Genetic Diseases". This relic, has its origins in the - also mysterious - Minoan nation or civilization (from Minos, the king - Crete).
Gagliano found the key code of Phaestus in the DNA structure. The discovery is remarkable given the age of the object, estimated around the year 1,400 BC (late Bronze Age). Made of clay, is recorded on two sides with different symbols arranged in spiral.
There is a reason which such symbols be disposed in spirals and with opposite polarities amid its two sides. Spiral is, presumed structural form of the DNA molecule. The Phestos symbols, deciphered, correspond, according to the scientist, to the 23 female chromosomes and 23 men, which combined, carry all information needed to configura a human being.
In the Hefaistos's code, each chromosome can be represented by one or more, two or three symbols in each division or step of the spiral. The symbols, in each section, together, compose a chromosome.
Some of these representations indicates the fragility of a chromosome. the possibility of a rupture. An accident that results in genetic abnormalities.
The Disk of Phaistos is like a map that shows , yet, the possibility of malformations caused by the dispersal of genetic material. Barbara Gagliano commented:
How much more I have dived into the code, more surprised and shocked I stood - about how our ancestors could might represent so accurately even genes, cell particles and molecules.
