Scientists and Ufologists have already begun to hypothesize what this monument is. According to some NASA specialists, the pyramid seen in the picture might be only a small part of it – the head, with the rest of the body buried under the Martian terrain.
While skeptics say this is just another small rock that was given too much attention, others believe the perfectly shaped body of the structure indicates that it was artificially fabricated by an advanced alien civilization that has abandoned Mars a long time ago.
Could this actually prove that Mars supported life at some point? The surface of Mars is a desolate waste, but according to the pictures sent by Curiosity rover, it is plausible now more than ever that planet Mars was inhabited and fully supported life, and who knows? Maybe it still does.
Regardless of this discovery, which could put humanity in a totally different perspective over time, space and forms of life in the universe, the team responsible with Curiosity only chose to take a few pictures of it, from a very few angles. It is also interesting how they purposely chose not to zoom into the strange structure for further evidence.
Such a discovery, if it were legitimate, would mean the beginning of a new scientific era. I believe that this much is true, and that NASA took countless pictures of the object but they were not released to the general public for obvious reasons. Former NASA employees have stated that the agency works under a curtain of secrecy and a considerable part of the evidence that has been gathered is highly classified.
It is a rock,” NASA principal investigator Dr. Jim Bell told press. “It is probably a volcanic rock (like most rocks that we’ve seen with rovers on Mars), and just like many volcanic rocks on Earth, the volcanic rocks on Mars break and cleave in very sharp, angular ways.
This one happens to have cleaved into a pyramidal shape, which is actually not too uncommon among hard, dense volcanic rocks on Earth either.”
Some people believe the information gathered on Mars is being processed first and afterwards released to the public under a different shape. Much alike the “nation’s attic”, NASA might be covering the real information about alien life because otherwise, history as we know it would change drastically and the current world order would lose credibility and eventually go down the drain.
Many ancient mysteries are waiting to be unraveled this century, as science and technology continue to advance. Seen as the „new age of exploration”, the 21st century promises to solve some of the most intriguing puzzles of our current history.
Scientists are still discussing the purpose of the Nazca lines. Do these complex geoglyphs in Peru symbolize constellations? Are they compared to giant alien landing spots, or are these signs showing the way for their ships? For now, no theory seems plausible enough when it comes to explaining their purpose.
These are the famous Nazca lines, a mystery that has concerned countless researchers for over 80 years. These mysterious markings were built on the ground, but can only be seen from above. It’s worth mentioning that the area is mostly flat and cannot offer a higher view of the glyphs.
The Nazca Lines can be found in the Nazca Desert, a barren plateau that expands between the city of Nasca and Palpa on the pampa, which is a smooth, desolated area of southern Peru. They cover-up an era of desert of nearly 400 square miles. Overall, there are more than 800 successive lines, 300 geometric figures and 70 animal and plant designs. Some of the straight lines stretch over 30 miles, while the other designs range from 50 to 1,200 feet in length, being as large as the Empire State Building.
Enormous geoglyphs are found in other places on Earth, such as Egypt, Chile, Bolivia, the United States (Mississippi and California), Malta and in other countries. However, the Nazca geoglyphs form an impressive and mysterious archaeological group because of their number, range, typical features as well as cultural continuity and preservation over the centuries.
The Nazca plain is remarkable for its ability to maintain the markings intact over a long period of time. Because the climate is one of the driest on Earth, recording only twenty minutes of rainfall each year, and the rocky soil which reduces the effect of wind at ground level, this barren place is ideal for preserving a work of art for eternity. The clarity and positioning of the lines and drawings leave no doubt that an exhaustive and long-term effort was instrumental in their creation.
There are diverse designs consisting of shapes of animals, plants, objects, flowers, and even huge manlike figures made with well-defined lines. The most renowned drawing is of a weird being looking similar to an astronaut. Measuring close to 100 feet in length, it was discovered by Maria Reiche in the 1960’s. Another curious representation is of a strange being with two huge, monstrous hands, one of them possessing only four fingers.
South of the Nazca Lines, on the pampa, archaeologists have discovered the ancient city of the line-builders – Cahuachi. It was constructed almost two thousand years ago and was inexplicably deserted 500 years later. Recent findings at Cahuachi are starting to slowly blow the dust off this ancient mystery.
Italian researcher Giuseppe Orefici has been uncovering the site’s secrets for the past decades, bringing a team down each year. He concluded that the settlement’s population was quite small, but the city was also a pilgrimage center that brought a huge increase in population whenever ceremonial events occurred.
These events seemingly concerned the Nazca Lines and the colossal sand dune of Nasca. This theory seems very plausible because of the archaeological evidence provided by the Nazca lines, showing creatures such as a killer whales and monkeys, which did not exist in the Nazca region.
Because of the arid climate the recent findings consist of clothing and amazingly preserved mummified bodies of the Nazca people. Archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert considers that our current progress in technology will help in solving this ancient mystery:
This is where using increasingly powerful computer analysis to crunch big sets of geographical and archaeological data would be really important.
Needless to say, only the obstacle of time remains before deciphering the true meaning of the Nazca Lines.
With the help of 21st century radar scanning technology, a giant ritual monument dating from the time of Stonehenge has emerged from under the bank of a nearby stone-age settlement. It appears to have a lot of fresh answers for some burdening questions about the origins of the site and its exact purpose.
Archaeologists have long been intrigued about Durrington Walls – a roundish super-henge almost 5,000 years old. Because of its unusual shape – with one side straight and the rest of the structure curved, the role of this place has remained unknown. In 1810, Sir Richard Colt Hoare speculated that its shape has been damaged over time and what purpose it served remained a mystery.
In present days though, using ground-penetrating radar technology, archaeologists have discovered that the straight edge stands over a series of 90 immense stones which once stood 15 feet high, forming a C-shaped arena which probably served as a ritual procession path.
Professor Vince Gaffney of the University of Bradford states:
It’s utterly remarkable! It is definitely one of the largest stone monuments in Europe and is completely unique. We’ve never seen something like this in the world. We can’t tell what the stones are made of, but they are the same height as the sarsens in the Stonehenge circle, so they may be the same kind.
It was probably for a ritual of some sort, or it could have marked out an arena. These monuments were very theatrical. This is a design to impress and empower.”
Not only does the new evidence demonstrate a completely unexpected phase of monumental architecture at one of the greatest ceremonial sites in prehistoric Europe, the new stone row could well be contemporary with the famous Stonehenge sarsen circle or even earlier.
The site is located in a depression near Amesbury, Wiltshire, not far from the River Amon. With over 1,640 feet in diameter, the structure is considered one of the biggest existing henge monuments, and was built approximately 4,500 years ago, during the Neolithic or the New Stone Age.
Durrington Walls was built on the same summer solstice alignment as Stonehenge. Researchers suggest that the people who built Stonehenge inhabited Durrington at that point in time, preparing the ceremonial ground and attending special rituals. According to the new evidence uncovered, a wooden structure from the vicinity was thought to symbolize the land of the living, while Stonehenge symbolized the realm of the dead.
The Bradford team of archaeologists have started a collaboration with an international team of researchers in the hope of revealing the buried and hidden landscape of Stonehenge and mapping the entire area with the help of the latest laser technology.
Everything previously written about Stonehenge landscape and the ancient monuments within it will need to be re-written” , declared one of the team members.
These latest results have produced tantalizing evidence of what lies beneath the ancient earthworks at Durrington Walls. The presence of what appear to be stones, surrounding the site of one of the largest Neolithic settlements in Europe adds a whole new chapter to the Stonehenge story.”
Excavations from all over the world have turned up quite a number of bizarre skulls that could not have belonged to any human or known animal. The Sealand Skull is one of the strangest—and least known—supposedly alien craniums out there.
This outlandish relic was discovered in July 2007 by workers replacing sewer pipes in a home in Ølstykke, Denmark. Not knowing what to make of the item, the workers handed it over to the home owners, who in turn kept the skull secret for the next three years.
In 2010, they gave the skull to one of their friends, who took it to the University of Copenhagen’s School of Veterinary Medicine. A committee of doctors analyzed the cranium and concluded that “although resembling a mammal, certain features make it impossible to fit the animal into Linnaean taxonomy.”
The Sealand Skull shares several similarities to that of a human but it is 50 percent larger than an average male’s. Its eye sockets are wider, deeper and set farther apart. These characteristics seem to suggest the creature it belonged to was most likely adapted to low-light conditions if not nocturnal altogether. The thin chin and smaller nostrils would have also contributed to its alien appearance.
Another striking feature is the size of its upper canines, considerably longer than a human’s and overlapping the lower row of teeth. It would have been disturbing to encounter this conspicuous, long-fanged predator, especially at night.
After the panel of doctors deemed the skull unidentifiable, it was sent to the Niels Bohr Institute, where Carbon-14 dating revealed its mysterious bearer had died sometime around 1,300 AD. However, this information did not appear to match the skull’s condition. It was found in a state of preservation which suggested it was never buried for long—a couple of decades at most. Having been discovered above the sewer pipes installed in the 1970s, the skull was most likely hidden in recent years.
The Sealand Skull did not make it to Ølstykke by accident. For hundreds of years, the area has been home to an ancient esoteric society called the Order of Pegasus’ Light (Ordre Lux Pégasos). Dating back to the 14th century AD, this obscure brotherhood has always been privy, their motives and dealings unknown to any and all outsiders. Among their ranks were illustrious minds such as William Shakespeare, René Descartes, Thomas Jefferson and H.G. Wells—or so they say.
The Order of Pegasus’ Light prides itself on having acted as the custodians of several out of place artifacts. They will not say what the artifacts are or what their purpose might be but they did mention an interesting aspect: some of them are made of incredibly light and durable metallic and ceramic materials. No-one knows how they came in possession of such objects. No-one but them.
It’s easy to make the connection between the age of the skull and the date around which the Order was founded and even easier to speculate how it might have happened. Perhaps a traveler from another planet arrived on Earth and imparted his knowledge to the humans who were willing to follow him. After all, most secret societies are born out of a wealth of information.
Would it stretch the imagination too far if we assumed that once this being’s time had ended, his disciples preserved its skull, along with the objects he had brought with him? The same thing has happened many times throughout history with human protagonists.
Several sources have linked the Sealand Skull to the illuminated Order, mainly because the house where it was dug up had once belonged to one of their members. In the end, it seems as though they managed to recover the artifact since it vanished in 2011 and no one knows where it is.
The Sealand Skull remains an puzzling mystery but it can handle one more question: does the answer to the riddle lie in the constellation of Pegasus?
Thirteen years ago, a group of Chinese researchers located and explored an ancient structure so unusual that an extraterrestrial hypothesis was promptly taken into consideration.
The fascinating ruins were discovered in the remote wilderness that makes up most of the intersection between China’s Qinghai province and the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Throughout history, humans have seldom settled in this harsh and inhospitable area. Only occasionally, migrant herdsmen pass through the mountainous regions to the north.
No industrial facilities can be found in the zone, much less the remnants of civilizations with advanced metalworking capabilities.
Despite this, atop a rocky ridge called Mt Baigong lies a pyramid-shaped ruin with three triangular entrances. Two of them are collapsed but the remaining one leads into an artificially-dug cave going deep into the heart of the mountain. Embedded in the cave walls and floor are hundreds of ancient metal pipes, arranged in what appears to have been a sophisticated network of unknown purpose and origin.
The rusted pipes range from toothpick-sized to 1.5 feet in diameter and connect the cave to nearby Toson Hu, a saltwater lake 300 feet away. On the northern shore of Lake Toson, erosion exposed hundreds more of these archaic ducts. This detail led researchers into believing whoever built the pipework either used it as a drainage system or as a way to pump saltwater from the lake.
Baffled by the complexity of the network of pipes, the researchers took samples of the strange metallic tubes to the Beijing Institute of Geology for analysis. That’s when they had their biggest surprise.
Making use of a process called thermoluminescence dating, the scientists were able to analyze the pipes’ crystalline structure and determined they had been subjected to extreme heat approximately 140-150,000 years ago. In other words, the pipes had been smelted long before humans started dabbling in metalworking. An advanced civilization building complex structures 145,000 before us? Could it have been alien?
The chemical analysis revealed even stranger details. The pipes had been smelted using a strange alloy composed of 92% common metals and minerals like ferric oxide, silicon dioxide and calcium oxide but it also contained 8% unknown materials. This intriguing aspect did not prove the pipes were out of this world but it did pave the way for speculation.
Unable to identify the exotic 8 percent, researchers turned to the remaining constituents and discovered another puzzling aspect: the pipes contained a proportion of silica that is specific to Mars.
The news fell like a bomb, the story quickly went viral and people started flocking to Mt Baigong to gawk at the anomalous artifacts. They even erected a monument with a satellite dish on top, a direct reference to the efforts to contact extraterrestrial civilizations.
As a consequence, the Chinese Government closed off the area and posted guards at the entrance to the cave. This attitude is highly suspicious, to say the least.
Skeptics say the Baigong pipes are nothing more than fossilized tree roots that somehow got lodged in sediment, hardening over the years and eventually becoming the unusual structures that stumped everyone. If this is the case, why would the authorities step in and have the military guard the site?
This situation led conspiracy theorists to believe Mt Baigong was once visited by an advanced extraterrestrial race, possibly originating from Mars. For whatever reason, they constructed an artificial pyramid on top of the mountain, housing what appears to have been a laboratory. This theory is intriguing for a number of reasons.
The entire area surrounding the mountain consists of wide expanses of flat terrain that would have been an ideal landing site for large spacecraft. The mountaintop makes for a perfect vantage point one could use to oversee landings and takeoffs.
Recently, mineral explorations have shown the area contains various ore deposits. Any industrious civilization, no matter how advanced, could see the utility of extracting and managing these resources. In order to do so, they would have needed some type of energy source and that is where the pipes’ purpose might become obvious.
The Chinese scientists wondered why the pipes went into saltwater when another freshwater lake was even closer to the pyramid. Why the need for water containing a greater percentage of sodium chloride? Let’s examine some of our own activities and perhaps we can find an answer.
Modern chemistry and manufacturing makes use of a process called electrolysis, which basically requires passing an electric current through a solution or a molten substance. This triggers a chemical reaction which allows for the separation of materials. When water undergoes electrolysis, it breaks down into hydrogen and oxygen but this only works when saltwater is used. And it’s worth noting that a mixture of liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen is commonly used as rocket fuel.
Admittedly, this is all speculation but when combined, the totality of the details start painting a clear picture for the open-minded:
Scientists discover ancient artifacts that predate modern history.
Evidence suggests they were part of a much more complex structure.
Complexity of said structure suggests the presence and activity of an advanced civilization, possibly from Mars.
Government intervenes and prevents access.
This scenario seems all too familiar to overlook.
Naturally, some have claimed the Baigong pipes are nothing more than a hoax. Unfortunately, this proposition seems to ignore the facts. The Chinese Government is well-known for its attitude towards those who sabotage the country’s image in the eyes of the rest of the world. It would have taken measures to punish those responsible for spreading false information rather than occupying the ancient pyramid.
Whatever the truth behind this perplexing discovery might be, one thing is certain: it doesn’t seem to fit in any of our traditional textbooks.
Would it be wise to believe that a primitive society erected one of the most mysterious cities, thousands of years ago, using nothing more than early Bronze Age tools? If not, who helped them carve and transport the largest stones in the world?
In Lebanon, 4,000 feet above sea level, lies the mythical Baalbek, an ancient site with a history spanning over 9,000 years. It was an ancient Phoenician city, named after the god Ba’al. According to Phoenician legends, Baalbek was the location where Ba’al first arrived on Earth in ancient times, therefore the initial building must have served as a huge landing platform for the aliens who once visited our planet.
This theory seems plausible because the stone blocks used to build the initial temple or city of Ba’al, are the largest that have ever existed in the whole world. The building blocks weigh about 1,500 tons and have a size of 68 x 14 x 14 feet. Beyond the remarkable size of this site, there is no information regarding its builders or the actual purpose of the structure.
The method used for cutting those stones has captivated scientists for many years now. Because some ancient writings describe Baalbek as a landing place, the idea of a pre-existing advanced civilization, as well as alien technological support doesn’t seem far from reality.
Evidence shows that the colossal stones at Baalbek were not built by the Romans or any other civilization after Christ. While Roman technology at that time could cut stones up to 5 tons, we can’t explain who managed to shape the 1,500-ton blocks, considered the largest megaliths in the entire world.
It is likely that the platform under Heliopolis – the name given by Alexander the Great after he conquered the area – served as the base of another older temple that possibly the Egyptians or the Romans wiped out to build their own. The same area where Heliopolis was built was formerly used by the Egyptians to worship Ra. Now I wonder why they would build another temple on the exact same spot, unless that location was of extreme importance for some reason?
Another interesting remark is the fact that, after the old temple was destroyed and the Romans built Heliopolis, people were still worshiping Ba’al as well as other Greek and Roman Gods. Other large temples were built over this site, such as the temple of Jupiter – the largest of its kind, also temples for Venus and Mercury, a bit smaller in size.
The rock quarry was located a quarter mile away from the area, meaning that the builders had to transport the colossal stones all the way to where the site is located. Another remarkable achievement is the precision of their stonework; the stones were set so close to each other that not even a sheet of paper could fit between them.
The lack of reference for building such a massive platform is intriguing. Why is there no trace of evidence upon the building of this place if the Romans or Greeks have done it? Considering the amount of work put into it and the fact that this place is unique should make any civilization want to take credit for their astonishing work.
Biblical researchers have linked Baalbek – temple for Ba’al to Ba’al-gad, sanctuary to Ba’al. Many similarities exist between these two, including the same region in Lebanon where these were built:
So Joshua took all that land, the hill country and all the Negeb and all the land of Goshen and the lowland and the Arabah and the hill country of Israel and its lowland from Mount Halak, which rises toward Seir, as far as Ba’al-gad in the Valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. And he captured all their kings and struck them and put them to death. – Joshua 11:16 – 11:17
It has become clear that Baalbek is an enigmatic and legendary site, used by distinctive civilizations throughout thousands of years – The Romans, the Greeks, the Egyptians and the Phoenicians are some of the known cultures who used it and all of them worshiped Ba’al.
Beyond these, we lack information concerning its origins or why the site was so important. Though one thing is certain: the original site wasn’t constructed by the Romans, and there is no other civilization that would have had the means to accomplish such a feat. These are not clumsy artifacts like Stonehenge. These are perfectly fitted 1,500-ton stones assembled into the biggest ancient foundation known to present day science.
What exactly occurred that made the builders leave without a clue regarding their existence and what purpose the site once held remains a complete mystery.
If a grave robber offered to show you something extraordinary—for a fee, of course—would you accept his proposal?
A Swiss club owner was presented with the same deal while visiting Egypt and, thanks to his curiosity, we have the chance to examine one of the few remaining pieces of evidence that prove giants once walked the Earth.
In April 1988, Gregor Spörri traveled to Egypt in search of knowledge about its mysterious past. He was particularly interested in the Great Pyramid and wanted to find out whether it acted as a cosmic energy amplifier. For two weeks, he explored hidden shafts and passageways and attempted to obtain information from officials. Unfortunately, he could not find any evidence of the pyramid’s energetic profile.
With his trip largely unsuccessful, Spörri resolved to make the best out of his last two days of vacation. But his luck changed in the place he least expected: a hotel bar. He had befriended the bartender and told him about his failure. The bartender then told him he knew someone who could show him something even more enigmatic.
The next morning, Spörri climbed into a cab and went for 2 hour drive near Sadat City, 60 miles NW of Cairo. The taxi dropped him off at a farmhouse in the Bir Hooker district, where he was greeted by an old man named Nagib.
Nagib told him he came from an old line of grave robbers. He said his ancestors had seen many forbidden things and some of them had been passed down from generation to generation. He had been forced to sell some of them to pay for his farm but there was one item he wouldn’t part with, no matter the price. The object had been in his family for over 150 years and, as far as Nagib knew, no one else in the world had something similar. At least no one willing to show it to others. Spörri agreed to pay him $300 for a chance to see the mysterious artifact.
He went into another room and brought back a wooden box. Inside it was a long object wrapped in leather. When the old man untied the bindings, Spörri couldn’t believe his eyes. In front of him lay a mummified finger so large, it couldn’t have belonged to a regular-sized man.
It was an oblong package and it smelled musty,” Spörri later recalled. “I was totally flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown giant finger.”
As he held the giant finger, Spörri realized his journey had been far more successful than he anticipated. In his hands was the palpable and thus undeniable evidence for the existence of ancient giants. This meant there was truth behind the legends about the gargantuan men of old.
The mummified finger measured an astounding 16 inches in length and was around 3 inches thick. But the mummification process had undoubtedly shrunk the finger so it must have been even bigger when still attached to the giant. Spörri had the chance to carefully examine it and is certain of the artifact’s authenticity. It was definitely ancient and organic in nature. It was simply too detailed to have been a forgery.
The finger had been severed with anatomical precision and, despite its age, the skin texture and even the fingerprints were still visible. The wrinkled skin was torn in several places and Spörri noticed it was several millimeters thick. The nail had almost come loose and the finger looked like it had been chewed on by rodents.
The size of this anomalous artifact meant that its initial owner must have towered above anyone else. The most conservative estimates place his height at around 16.5 feet but, since the finger must have been longer prior to being mummified, the giant could have been even taller.
Scientists recently discovered an ancient and massive monolith in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a controversial artifact that suggests the ancients were far more advanced than previously thought.
More than 9300 years ago, Stone Age hunter-gatherers achieved something beyond what today’s scientists thought possible for the time. They managed to cut a 15 ton sedimentary rock with accuracy, drilled openings in it and moved it approximately 1,000 feet. The 30-foot-long monolith was found in a now-underwater area of the Mediterranean Sea.
Oceanographers found the monolith 131 feet deep while researching the Mediterranean Sea bottom in the Sicilian Channel between Tunisia and Sicily. The discovery was made in 2012. Scientists said this region became fully submerged about 9,300 years ago. Previously, the region was an archipelago of various islands between the island of Sicily and the North African coast.
Knowing this, researchers assumed the stone column was carved over 9,300 years ago. They were able to date the monolith by acquiring shell fragments from its surface and comparing them with different ancient rock types. They also found that it has the same structure and age as other rocks about 330 yards away, indicating it was transported the same distance.
Scientists say the uncovering of this underwater pillar may determine scholars to reconsider the entire idea of “technological primitivism” among hunter-gatherers (and the means they possessed). This finding supports the evidence for a considerable Mesolithic human activity in the Sicilian Channel area.
A few aspects led them to consider the idea of this monolith being shaped by humans and not by mother nature. They stated in a report that the stone column has a common shape and three holes of the same diameter. It is composed of sedimentary rocks of a nature very much alike other rocks not too far from where it was carried, but it’s different from the rocks in the immediate vicinity.
The existence of the large monument indicates an extensive human activity in the area. It was cut and physically removed as a single stone unit from the outer ridge located about 1,000 feet to the south and afterwards transported using the “primitive tools” the hunter-gatherers had at that point in time. Interesting to note that, from the size of the monolith, it might had weighed about fifteen tons.
Even though the role of the monolith remains unknown, researchers presume it had an important function since it was located in an important area, halfway between Sicily and Tunisia. The first humans arrived in Sicily sometime between 17,000 and 27,000 years ago, when there was a land bridge from the Italian mainland.
The uncovering of this underwater site in the Sicilian Channel may expand our understanding of the ancient civilizations in the Mediterranean basin and our current views on technological change and growth achieved by the Mesolithic dwellers.
The monolith was made of a single, gigantic rock, which needed cutting, removal, transportation, and establishment, which shows without doubt great technical skills and impressive engineering.
The scientist studying this case stated:
The belief that our ancestors lacked the knowledge, skill, and technology to exploit marine resources or make sea crossings, must be progressively abandoned. The recent findings have definitively removed the idea of ‘technical primitivism’, often attributed to hunter-gatherer coastal settlers.”
Our planet has offered shelter to countless human beings. Many civilizations thrived over the years, managing to achieve knowledge and understanding about their surroundings. Therefore, complex techniques were created to reach their goals. Ancient history has a lot of gaps and because of that, some scientists presume human development has reached its peak in present days, and that never before a more advanced civilization has existed.
Uncovered from the depths of Earth, new evidence points into another direction than the one we are following and believing right now. Our current World Order is hiding the truth to preserve their authority, concealing new evidence that is found. Sometimes though, they leave some “small discoveries” pass through because they won’t influence the public opinion at all.
If we open our eyes and analyze some recent discoveries we realize many secrets are left untouched, sealed for eternity. But they can’t fool all of us, can they ?
A recent discovery made by a team of scientists has put a spotlight on what many consider to be the first extraterrestrial organism found. Is this definitive proof that aliens exist?
This recent discovery might prove instrumental in answering one of humanity’s ardent questions: “where do we come from?” At the moment, science is unable to provide a response.
3.9 billion years ago, life appeared on Earth. Long-lost through the sands of time, this event provided the basis for our existence on the pale blue dot we call home. Without those primordial single-celled organisms, we wouldn’t be here today, wondering where they came from.
Despite all the advancements of modern science, researchers are still pretty much in the dark when it comes to pinpointing the exact origin of the first life forms on our planet. There are many ideas floating around, but this scientific problem is not yet solved.
Two main theories attempt to explain the enigma. One of them postulates that life appeared on Earth because it had all the necessary conditions. However, there is no standard model on how life might have started. The step from lifeless to alive is too big a leap for our current understanding.
The other theory is called panspermia and was first proposed by Nobel prize-winning Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius. He reasoned that life did not originate here on Earth. It must have developed elsewhere in the universe and later arrived here. Panspermia isn’t a theory on how life began, it’s one about how life began here.
Numerous experiments have shown that some microorganisms can withstand extreme conditions. Furthermore, they can enter a dormant state that allows them to survive for a very, very long time. Scientists even discovered 40 million years-old spores and were amazed when they sprang back to life. It wouldn’t be impossible for some microscopic creatures to survive a lengthy journey through space. If they were to arrive on a planet that could sustain life, they could populate it. Perhaps our own home world was seeded with life by microbe-carrying meteorites.
And now, the news.
The University of Buckingham’s Center for Astrobiology recently conducted an investigation to determine whether panspermia could account for the origin of life on Earth. Led by Professor Milton Wainwright, a group of scientists set up an experiment that aimed to collect microscopic samples from outside of Earth’s atmosphere. In order to do so, they sent a series of balloons to altitudes of around 20 miles, at the edge of outer space.
The balloons were equipped with powerful magnets that collected samples of microscopic debris. One of them brought back traces of rare elements such as dysprosium, lutetium, neodymium and niobium. It also carried back something unexpected, something many consider to be the first recorded extraterrestrial organism.
Perched atop a microscopic salt crystal was the “amorphous form” of what the scientists believe to be an extraterrestrial biological entity.
As far as we can tell, the particle has no relation to anything found on Earth,” Professor Wainwright told press. “This latest launch is also exciting because the team found particles containing so-called rare earth elements at a height close to 30 kilometers in the stratosphere.
These particle masses are too big to have been carried up from Earth and, like the alien life forms we find, must be incoming to Earth from space.”
Curiously enough, this isn’t the first time Prof. Wainwright and his team discovered something truly extraordinary. Earlier this year, they managed to catch another entity they believe to be extraterrestrial in nature—a microscopic metallic sphere resembling a seed-like organism. Inside the sphere was a liquid that contained what appeared to be genetic material.
The year before, they had discovered two equally-enigmatic presences the media dubbed the “ghost” and “dragon particle.” All of them were discovered at an altitude no earthly microorganism can reach, leading the researchers to believe they must have originated from outer space.
Professor Wainwright’s views are shared by his colleague Chandra Wickramasinghe, Professor and Director of the Buckingham Center for Astrobiology, another strong proponent of panspermia.
From the turn of the millennium an impressive body of evidence has accumulated to indicate that microbial life does indeed exist outside the Earth,” Wickramasinghe said.
It is permitted nowadays to assert that comets and meteorites delivered the chemical building blocks of life to form a primordial soup from which life originated on Earth some four billion years ago.
The idea of life originating on Earth ‘in some primordial soup’ is deeply rooted in the religious and scientific culture of the Western world. […] Wrong ideas have crippled science in the past. If we are not vigilant it could happen again, and this time round the societal and economic consequences could be more disastrous.”
Naturally, these findings are looked upon with suspicion and ultimately contested by mainstream science. In order for the centuries-old paradigm to shift, more convincing evidence needs to be provided. Perhaps, decades from now, people will look back to these discoveries and see them as the first steps towards finding out the true origin of life on Earth.
One of the most intriguing archaeological discoveries in America comes from the rocky cliffs of the Grand Canyon. What makes it even more interesting is the fact that the Smithsonian itself covered it up and hid this mysterious discovery of an ancient civilization living below the canyon.
The World Explorers Club led an investigation regarding the authenticity of this discovery after they found an intricate story on the front page of the Phoenix Gazette from April 5, 1909. It was an accurate description of an expedition led by Professor S.A. Jordan of the Smithsonian, surfacing with great archaeological finds from a remote cave in the Grand Canyon.
Maybe the most interesting is the attitude of the Smithsonian, claiming to have zero knowledge about this discovery and its discoverers. When asked about the newspaper article regarding a Smithsonian excavation in the Grand Canyon where Egyptian artifacts had been found—and whether they could offer more information—a representative of the institution said:
The first thing I can tell you before we go any further, is that no Egyptian artifact of any kind have ever been found in North or South America. Therefore, I can tell you that the Smithsonian Institute has never been involved in any such excavations.”
No one from the Smithsonian could offer any information about the discovery or either G.E. Kinkaid and Professor S.A. Jordan. It was like the entire article from the 1909, Phoenix newspaper was a shameless hoax. But, considering the fact that it appeared on the front page, mentioned the famous Smithsonian Institution and some of its archaeologists, and it also contained a very detailed story written on numerous pages, many believe the newspaper was a legitimate source.
So, why are they covering this up ? After all, we are talking about a monumental discovery that would completely change the current belief that there was no form of communication or travel over the oceans in pre-Colombian times. Also, the belief that all American Indians were the followers of Ice Age adventurers who came across the Bering Strait would become questionable.
The idea of ancient Egyptians coming to Arizona in an ancient past is denied even though the Smithsonian Institution seems to have proof of it. Why won’t they reveal this information? Is it because this astounding discovery would overwrite current academic teachings? Or maybe because of the interest to preserve their current status as keepers of forbidden knowledge.
The Tower of Ra
Following these events, in the pursuit of finding the truth, historian Carl Hart, editor of World Explorer, acquired a map of the Grand Canyon from a bookstore in Chicago. Looking over the map, he was surprised to find that a considerable portion on the north side of the canyon has Egyptian names. The field around Ninety-four Mile Creek and Trinity Creek had areas named after Egyptian gods like Tower of Ra, Tower of Set, Osiris Temple, Horus Temple or Isis Temple.
Also, the Haunted Canyon area had some unfamiliar places on the map, such as the Cheops Pyramid, the Buddha Cloister, Buddha Temple, Shiva Temple and Manu Temple. Were any of these places related to the other Egyptian findings in the Grand Canyon ?
The Isis Temple
The World Explorers Club then called a state archaeologist at the Grand Canyon. He said that the names were just a coincidence and that the early adventurers enjoyed Egyptian and Hindu names. But one thing was certain – that area was restricted to hikers or other foreigners, because of dangerous caves and unsafe environment.
Could these hidden caverns contain the actual truth and, if so, for how long will it be sealed? If we take a look at the bigger picture, there is a lot of leaked information which points us into a different direction than what we were taught by the public school system and television. We have a different notion of “truth” and we are also aware of all the odd jobs going on.
One thing is certain : history has a lot of gaps, and the existing evidence might be a paved road over an otherwise dusty foundation, representing the real history of humankind.
In 1986, the crew of Japan Air Lines’ flight 1628 became the unwilling spectators of one of the most intriguing UFO encounters. The sighting remains unexplained to this day.
A Japanese crew of a jumbo freighter aircraft witnessed three UFOs during their flight over Alaska, USA. The Federal Aviation Administration officially investigated this sighting, eventually leading to another mismatched conclusion. The UFOs in this case were tracked by both ground and airborne scanning systems, witnessed by professional airline pilots, and confirmed by an FAA Division Chief. A few months after this event, the captain of the flight was restrained , apparently because of his recklessness of reporting a UFO, even though he was a senior captain with an exemplary flying record.
On November 16, 1986, one of Japan Air Lines’ 747 cargo planes was set to carry a shipment of French wine from Paris to Tokyo. Flight 1628’s crew consisted of veteran Captain Kenju Terauchi, co-pilot Takanori Tamefuji, and flight engineer Yoshio Tsukuba.
As they departed loaded with wine, JAL 1628 took off from Paris and flew over Reykjavik, the next day flying over Greenland and then across northern Canada without notable events.
When they crossed into Alaska, at 5:09 PM local time, the plane was at 35, 000 feet and traveling at a ground speed of 600 mph.
At about 5:11 PM local time, Captain Terauchi noticed the lights of what he first thought it was an American jet fighter from Elmendorf Air Force Base inspecting Alaskan airspace. He saw the lights flying about 2000 feet below and 30 degrees to his left, neglecting them at first. He became nervous after a few minutes, as he noticed that the lights were still keeping pace with his plane, an uncommon thing for a patrolling jet to do.
It was about seven or so minutes since we began paying attention to the lights when, most unexpectedly, two spaceships stopped in front of our face, shooting off lights,” Terauchi stated. “The inside of the cockpit shined brightly and I felt warm in the face”.
The crafts, one above the other, followed the 747 for several minutes before changing position. They were now on a side-by-side arrangement. Described by Terauchi, the lights were amber and whitish and looked like fires coming out of a rocket exhaust port. He stated that they fired in a specific order to stabilize the craft, similar to a Space Shuttle’s landing maneuvers.
Co-pilot Tamefuji said the lights were “Christmas assorted” and also pulsating slowly. Every few seconds, they became stronger, and then weaker, then again stronger and so on. The co-pilot became convinced that he was witnessing something out of the ordinary. Afterwards he declared:
I’m sure I saw something…It was clear enough to make me believe that there was an ongoing aircraft.”
At that point, Tamefuji decided to call Anchorage Air Traffic Control to report this matter. For the next thirty minutes, he maintained radio contact with the ground, describing this strange event. During this time, Captain Terauchi and the flight engineer Tskububa tried to take some pictures of the UFOs but without success, as they were unfamiliar with the camera device and couldn’t get it to work.
Meanwhile, the objects flew off to the left, leaving behind a trail of pale white light, as Terauchi described it. He then decided to check if anything showed up on the 747’s own radar:
I thought it would be impossible to find anything on an aircraft radar if a large ground radar did not show anything, but I judged the distance to the object visually and it was not very far. I set the digital weather radar distance to 20 miles and there it was on the screen. A large green and round object had appeared 7 or 8 miles away, where the direction of the object was.”
Captain Terauchi immediately reported to Anchorage center that the UFOs could be seen on his radar, but the ground team couldn’t see a thing on their scanning system. Surprisingly, after spending a few minutes looking, the military radar at Elmendorf Regional Operational Control Center managed to pick up some sort of signal near the 747’s flight area.
One of the key figures of the ancient worlds was the shaman. As enigmatic today as they were thousands of years ago, these mystic practitioners were said to possess magic powers that helped shape the first human societies.
Today, the word “shamanism” is often used in a generalized way to illustrate a lot of indigenous magical rituals in a wide range of cultures all across the world. Modern books can be found about a so-called “Celtic shamanism” and even “Ancient Egyptian shamanism”, also modern writers such as Dr. Michael Harner have also created what is called “core shamanism” or “urban shamanism”.
These actions takes the aspect of shamanic beliefs and rituals and puts them in a safe, clean and often around the topic form that is adequate for Western seekers of alternative spirituality. In this article, however, we explore the real “core shamanism” as it has been practiced for hundreds of years in Siberia and some areas of Mongolia from where it originates.
The earliest references to magical users that could be described as shamans date back to the 13th century. Back then, the first Western travelers passed through Central Asia and discovered the Mongol rulers. Marco Polo the explorer met magicians who were healers and could tell diseases by the use of divination. Polo says the shamans became possessed by what he described as “a devil” who used his voice to speak through them.
In the 16th century, an English explorer called Richard Johnston was the first to describe a shaman ritual. He proclaimed witnessing a tribal man wearing animal skins and playing a drum “shaped like a great sieve” in “devilish rites”. He then claimed that during the rite, the drummer fell under a spell and was possessed by “evil spirits”.
Nicholas Witsen is another Western explorer who in 1692 traveled to Asia and described seeing a shaman or “priest of the Devil”. He was clothed in a ritual regalia, formed of an antlered head-dress and a richly emblazoned robe, and shouted and beat on a drum to call the spirits. Reflecting the Catholic culture they came from, these Westerners thought of themselves as civilized and regarded the shamans as fantastical men who worship the devil and forced their naive and uneducated disciples to serve evil spirits and demons.
Although Westerners utilize the term “shaman” to describe every tribal magical practitioners, in reality they were divided into several different categories with specific magical powers and duties. These consisted of “conjurers” who summoned and controlled spirits, sorcerers who studied black magic, prophets who foretold the future, trance-workers who could travel in spirit form to other worlds, healers who could treat injury and were experts in folk medicine and herbalism, and shamans who guided the dead and conducted funeral rites.
Most of the shamans worked with animal allies or spirit-helpers in animal form. These spirits helped them with their magical work and also offered them knowledge. For instance, shamanic practitioners were guided by a reindeer or wolves who helped them track and destroy evil spirits, and ravens for getting rid of sickness. Other animal spirits took the form of owls, bears, squirrels, frogs, dogs, toads, seagulls and eagles.
One of the most meaningful and appreciated types of magical practitioners was the shaman-smith. Cultures all over the world from Europe to Africa give the smith a central role in tribal society. It was regarded as a powerful sorcerer because of his mastery over fire and ability in shaping metal. There are many myths about blacksmiths making deals with demons, gods or ancient beings. There are also many smith gods in old legends who were mages, made weapons for the Gods or invented agricultural tools. The original Siberian shaman-smiths made ritual objects of great power, imbued afterwards with magical properties that served other shamans or warriors of the tribe. They were only named by the spirits and instead of drums, they used their anvils to connect and interact with the spiritual realm.
Men weren’t the only ones allowed to become shamans, as women had a key role in maintaining a tribe’s prosperity and bloodline. The females were often shaman-healers, as they specialized in health problems regarding children, as well as human and animal fertility. The she-shamans were distinguished by their different skirts made from animal hide and luminously colored hats made from wool.
Another female specialist was the shaman-midwife. She was tasked with the spiritual protection from evil spirits during birth and also with ensuring that babies arrived safely to this world. Right after a child was born, the shaman-midwife cut the umbilical cord and afterwards purified the new-born with salt water and fire. Throughout the first weeks of a baby’s life, she conducted the proper ritual for shielding the child until his spirit was fully settled in the material world. If these rituals were not performed accordingly, then the baby’s spirit might return from where it had come.
In present days, society has turned its head away from spiritual belief and cosmic knowledge. The new world that humans have created is linked to material gain and soulless objects rather than understanding human needs and preserving life. We are currently controlled and restricted in our way of living and thinking. Information might seem easy to come by but most of the time it’s not truly authentic. this begs the question: are we still able to access the spirit realm from our concrete world, like shamans once did?
Equally feared and respected, the shaman has been a key figure throughout the history of human civilization. Could we someday revive their long-forgotten abilities and if so, what could we accomplish using the supernatural powers they once wielded?
Similar to the distinct types of magical practitioners, shamans were also classified into two different tiers – “black” or “white”. The black shamans were renowned as the most powerful and were sometimes called as “warrior-shamans” because they fought evil forces and were named military advisors during a war. They secured their power from the North Star and could be easily spotted as they usually wore black robes with very few, if any decoration.
The main role of the black shamans was to confront demons and the dark gods on behalf of their clients. This role they fulfilled by cursing and blighting enemy crops or herds.
During a war, the black shamans rode side by side with the army and helped to win campaigns using their mystic powers. In times of peace, they had a more constructive role as emissaries, diplomats or political advisors. Some shamans were so powerful and recognizable that they inspected the preparation and signing of treaties with the relevant magical formalities.
Black shamans were extremely feared, even after they died. In the 16th century when an occult one died, he was put in a coffin, his corpse then nailed down with sharp stakes so he could not transform into a powerful undead creature that haunts the living.
In contrast to the powerful warlords described above, the “white” shamans gained their magical powers from nature and everything that surrounded them. They performed at a tribal level, mostly as healers and mystics and they only had to deal with beneficent beings. It was their task to tame angry or evil spirits and exorcise them if they possessed humans. Besides the mystical encounters, they helped the tribe prosper and live at peace with the spirit world as well as the natural environment. On a physical level, because of their great knowledge and power of understanding, they were employed in an administrative role to take care of tribal affairs.
Shamans, either black or white were great spiritual leaders who could change the tide of events that were to follow. They possessed great intellect and understanding of the world, therefore providing remedies for the injured or alleviation for the dying. In ancient times, having such allies by your side was worth more than a treasure chest, as they could help you win the hardest battle.
Shamans of old believed in three worlds of coexistence linked together by the World Tree or Tree of Life. These were the Lower World or Underworld inhabited by the dead who were awaiting reincarnation, the Middle World or Middle Earth, where human spirits were incarnated, and the Upper World or Heaven, the house of the Gods. Various non-human spirits also inhabited each of these three worlds.
The shamans could access these other worlds in trance using the means of spirit travel. It is intriguing to note that in medieval times, European witches were presumed to fly to their Sabbats using their enchanted broomsticks. It is clear that this was not done physically, so the sorceresses were also practicing a shamanic form of spirit flight.
On the 4th of October, 2002, a bizarre guest arrived on the Coast to Coast AM radio show with Art Bell. The host had a reputation for analyzing mysterious themes with intriguing guests, but only few had ever sounded as amazed as this one.
The guest – Dallas Thompson, was a legally blind personal trainer who spent his boyhood in Hawaii, but now lived in Bakersfield, California. Five years earlier, his life had changed forever after a terrible car accident.
He was driving along the Highway during heavy rain when his car hydroplaned at 70 miles an hour, spinning four times before falling from a cliff about 250 ft. When he was found, the top of his car had been crushed almost to the floor. The fireman who responded to the scene was astonished that he hadn’t been decapitated. But miraculously, Thompson survived.
Transported to a “safe zone“, he then had an unbelievable Near – Death Experience. Thompson had visions of the past in which he saw the coming pole shift, and a terrible changeover, claiming at least two billion people were going to die .
People are feeling it. They know something is going on, but they can’t put their finger on it “.
Besides this vision, he also saw the portals at the poles, a clue from the tribes of old that a safe haven existed deep beneath the crust of the Earth. As Thompson said, he only remembered what was forgotten. After having these visions, it became his quest to inform and protect the people on the surface from the coming pole shift and the rising threat of Wormwood or Planet X.
According to his plan, he saw shelter for humans within the Hollow Earth, and he wanted to find a way inside as he was guided by the visions he had during that near – death experience. He came on Coast to Coast AM to discuss his mission, to uncover and explore the underground world.
Dallas Thompson’s vision of the Hollow Earth was a complicated tapestry of portals and caves, underground secret roads, reptilians and “tribes of old”, ending at the very center with a “bright light”.
He claimed that there were cavern systems which cross the entire mantle, and that the holes into the hollow Earth really exist, that monks frequently travel through the cracks in order to visit the mythical Tibetan village called Shambhala. During his vision, he saw that the beings living there were protected from pollutants and harmful rays because of the special atmosphere in the hole.
Thompson pictured planet Earth as a hive. Aliens from other worlds had other hives and they would travel from planet to planet, from hive to hive, and they sometimes visited Earth. He stated that the civilization beneath our feet was a mixture of various ancient tribes, people and legendary creatures long extinct on the surface, like mammoths and saber-toothed tigers.
It also offered shelter to gods like the Anunnaki and the Nephilim, as well as the ancient civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria. Inside Earth, they existed beyond the third dimension, undisclosed and sheltered from the world on the surface.
An ancient Hopi prophecy states that “when the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge.” It also speaks about the manifestation of nine signs foretelling this world-changing event. Could it be happening right now?
In long-forgotten times, people inhabiting Earth had a different connection to the spirit world than we have today. The existence of legends and prophecies seems to outline this fact. Because there were no pollutants, the sky offered at night a map of the universe. The sight must have been spectacular but, besides the view, ancient writings tell us people received cosmic signs from their gods and also witnessed what can only be described as alien encounters.
Proof of these encounters can be found everywhere across the globe, and it consists of paintings, sculptures, readings, drawings and even descendants from people of old who had experienced such mythical encounters. Today, they remain hidden, awaiting for their ancestors to return and cleanse the land of humans.
The Peaceful People, Hopi, have been living in northeastern Arizona since they can remember and are believed to be descendants from cultures to the south, east and north. The Anasazi are forefathers of the Hopi, which creates a direct link to the ancient Aztec culture. Though many civilizations around the globe support religious beliefs of “white gods” descending from the sky, the Hopi tribe believe their ancestors came from within the ground.
One of the many Hopi myths specifically describes strange beings who reside inside the heart of the Earth and are called the Ant People. Drawings displaying the Ant People firmly resemble illustrations found in modern grey alien encounter reports. Another connection exists between the Hopi’s Ant People and the Mesoamerican legend of Quetzalcoatl. It is believed that the Ant People had helped the “White God” discover corn on a mountain packed full of grain and seeds.
The Hopi believe the Star People and their star knowledge will return at the end of the current period of time, as they have in past times. Their entire mythology is built upon the assumption that the world goes through successive cycles separated by cataclysmic events. According to their legends, at the time of the Blue Kachina, the Star People retreated to the heart of the Earth, seeking shelter during the world’s destruction. Passed down from generation to generation, their intriguing mythology describes the event:
First, the Blue Kachina would start to be seen at the dances, and would make his appearance known to the children in the plaza during the night dance. This event would tell us that the end times are very near. Then the Blue Star Kachina would physically appear in our heavens which would mean that we were in the end times.”
When the First World was destroyed, people returned from the ground to the outer world to live as ants for the continuation of the Second World. The Third World tells of an advanced civilization with “flying shields” and wars between far – off cities ultimately destroyed by terrible floods, narratives very similar to those found in Babylonian mythology.
Hopi Indians are now wardens of the Fourth World in exchange for the benefit of living on Earth. They consider the coming of the Fifth World is near and will begin when members of the Fire Clan return.
In the Final days we will look up in our heavens and we will witness the return of the two brothers who helped create this world in the birthing time. Poganghoya is the guardian of our North Pole and his brother Palongawhoya is the guardian of the South Pole.
In the final days the Blue Star Kachina will come to be with his nephews and they will return the Earth to its natural rotation which is counterclockwise. Not far behind the twins will come the Purifier – The Red Kachina, who will bring the Day of Purification. On this day the Earth, her creatures and all life as we know it will change forever.”
