A man living in a village in northern Bosnia believes aliens are targeting his home, after having six meteorites crash through his roof in a period of less than a year.
Millions of meteorites whoosh through Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but the vast majority of them burn to a crisp before they have the chance to reach ground. A small percentage of these intruders manage to hit the Earth’s surface but very few make it into someone’s living room. That is why six meteorites striking the same place in such a short period of time is a highly unusual event with a very low probability of occurrence.
One evening in November 2007, Radivoje Lajic was sleeping in his home in the Bosnian village of Gornji when he was awakened by a loud noise. At first, he believed his village was under attack and memories of the recent war that ravaged his country immediately flooded his mind. But the night remained silent and Lajic soon found the culprit, a space rock that had left a gaping hole in his roof. A weird incident nonetheless, but stuff like this sometimes happens, Lajic probably said to himself. Little did he know that this meteorite would be the first of six to crash directly into his household.
Over the next several months, four more meteorites ended their cosmic journey on his property, prompting Lajic to prepare for the next attack by reinforcing his roof with steel girders. The rocky rain came to a halt in April 2008, only for another meteorite to strike his Gornji home in the summer of 2010. Since then, Radivoje Lajic has become convinced he is the target of an extraterrestrial attack of sorts:
“I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don’t know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate.
They are playing games with me. I don’t know why they are doing this. When it rains I can’t sleep for worrying about another strike.”
Scientists at the Belgrade University caught wind of his troubles and analysis confirmed the projectiles are out of this world. Shortly after, he began receiving offers to sell the meteorites and the space rocks ended up paying for the damage they caused.
But what could have determined this strange string of events? What is so special about Radivoje Lajic’s home that it constitutes a great attractor for objects from outer space? Perhaps he built it on top of a magnetic or gravitational anomaly, but tests revealed nothing, so the explanation might lay elsewhere. As it turns out, not that far.
Less than 30 miles in a straight line from Gornji is the city of Visoko. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ll be surprised to know that Visoko is home to the famous Bosnian Pyramids, a controversial group of structures that many believe are artificial in nature.
In recent years, these pyramids have come under intense scientific scrutiny and for good reason: they might be the oldest pyramids ever discovered, much older than the Egyptian ones or any other pyramid discovered in the New World.
Archaeologists determined the Bosnian Pyramids to be at least 24,800 years old, predating the Pyramid of Djoser by at least 20,000 years. If these estimations are correct, it must be that the Visoko pyramids were built by an unknown ancient civilization that had the technological means to erect a 722 foot-tall edifice, 60% higher than the Great Pyramid of Giza. Who and how?
In 2005, Bosnian author Semir Osmanagic attempted to answer these questions and began excavations at the Visoko site. His team concluded that the pyramids were built using sandstone and conglomerate blocks and the entire structure was held together by a concrete mixture not unlike the cement used by the ancient Romans. This unusual composition couldn’t have occurred naturally, lending credence to the theory that the Bosnian pyramids are indeed artificial. Whether they’re man-made or not, nobody can say for sure.
The three pyramids’ placement also seems to support these claims, since the pyramids are aligned with the Earth’s cardinal points and point to stellar north.
“Although tens of thousands of pyramids have been discovered across the planet, none have the construction quality and date back as far as the ones in Bosnia,” Osmanagic said. “Bosnia is the original pyramid, the oldest and largest ever constructed. It has an exact zero degree North orientation and is potentially the key to releasing information about ancient technology that can free the world of its dependence of fossil fuel…”
Osmanagic’s observations revealed even stranger occurrences in or around the Visoko pyramids. He claims electromagnetic disturbances often happen and that he even witnessed an energy beam emanating from the top of the tallest pyramid, on multiple occasions. Sometimes, this beam is accompanied by ultrasound emissions, operating at 28 kHz. This isn’t a unique event, as multiple witnesses from all around the world have reported similar energy beams shooting straight up from pyramids. If this is true, it must mean we’ve been wrong all along in thinking pyramids are just tombs or fancy monuments erected by the ancients.
Many authors believe the pyramid shape exhibits strange energetic properties and as such, they claim the ancients must have used them as generators of an energy still unknown to us.
This adds a whole new dimension to Radivoje Lajic’s meteorite hit case and could provide an explanation for the unusually high number of impacts his house has suffered in the past years. If the nearby pyramids are exerting some kind of geomagnetic or gravitational disturbance, it could be enough to disrupt the meteorites’ natural trajectory and somehow attract them to the area. They wouldn’t have to come crashing on top of the pyramids themselves and could easily land nearby, damaging property and scaring sleeping Bosnians.
The possibility remains that these cases are disconnected and the meteor rains on Lajic’s property are merely the result of nature’s fickleness but it would be unwise not to take into account the proximity between Visoko and Gornji. After all, a meteorite hurtling through the atmosphere would cover a distance of 30 miles in a couple of seconds. It might not be aliens targeting Lajic after all, but rather the work of an unknown, long-gone civilization.
