The Teotihuacan Revelations

I raced up the stone steps, higher and higher. Perhaps I should have slowed down and imbued my mind with reverence, but I couldn’t help it. I had waited all my life to climb the Pyramid of the Sun. I finally arrived at the summit, over 200 feet high, and marveled at the view of the Valley of Mexico all around me. Distant mountains ringed the horizon, and before me sprawled the ruins of the largest ancient metropolis in the Americas. The Aztecs had found…

Was Columbus on a Secret Mission?

In America today he is called Christopher Columbus; in Spanish-speaking countries his name is Cristobal Colon. In Italian he is Cristoforo Colombo, and in the dialect of Genoa (his supposed place of birth) he is Cristofta Conbo. There has always been some uncertainty regarding his true nationality, but we know he had a brother, Bartolomeo, and that he married a Portuguese woman, Filipa Moniz Perestrelo, daughter of Bartolomeu Perestrelo. Their son was Diego and, after his wife’s death, Columbus had a mistress and, by her,…

Templars in Tennesee?

There exists in the state of Tennessee, and in the neighboring states of Kentucky, North Carolina, and Virginia, a people who were, and are in modern times, very different racially from the recognized settlers of the region. They were first noted in 1654, by English explorers who believed they were, indeed, a separate race. They were dark, but not black. They may have intermarried with Native Americans including the Cherokee, Creek, and Powhatans. They did not speak in any of the tribal languages but could…

Could Big Science Be on Trial?

If you thought that important archaeological discoveries were being kept hidden from the public, and that laws intended to preserve the public’s right to know were being routinely violated, you could expect to be sneered at by the science-and-media establishment, but you would, nevertheless, be right. That is the view of highly respected Professor Keith Kintigh of the Arizona State University, School of Human Evolution and Social Change. Kintigh sits on the Board of Directors of the Center for Digital Antiquity, “Today, nearly all archaeological…

Atlantis in the Sahara? Has Plato’s Illusive City Been Hiding in Plain Sight? Some think the best way to explain the near psychotic state of the world today is that there exists a deep planetary amnesia, resulting from some very ancient catastrophe, which suddenly destroyed a once-advanced civilization, literally sending us back to the Stone Age. The best example of such a society would be ‘Atlantis,’ as described in detail by the fourth century BC Greek philosopher Plato. Historians and scholars, however, have struggled unsuccessfully…

10,000-Year-Old Art Found in India Hundreds of large rock-art images, believed to be over ten-thousand years old, have been discovered in the Konkon region of western Maharashtra State in India. Virtually invisible from ground level, the thousands of images appear clearly in aerial photographs. The often-mud-covered petroglyphs existed, for the most part, without the knowledge of nearby human populations, though some locals who revered them knew some. Depicted are many animals, birds, human figures, and geometric designs, reminiscent of the famous Nazca lines in Peru,…

Massive Mayan Metropolis Confirmed The idea that ancient Maya civilization in Central America was just a series of primitive jungle villages with pyramids has now been completely debunked. New jungle-penetrating imagery is revealing the existence on a massive scale of the ancient lowland culture of Guatemala, putting to rest, hopefully, once and for all, the notion of small-scale primitive development. Using the latest technical means, jungle-penetrating LiDAR (light detection and ranging), 18 scholars from the U.S., Europe, and Guatemala have now pieced together ground maps…

Japanese Robots Land on Ryugu If asteroids are to be the go-to resource for resupplying a needy planet Earth, the Japanese may have just ‘hopped’ to the lead of the race to corner the market. In September, the Japanese Exploration Agency (JAXA) landed the first two of several probes intended for the asteroid Ryugu. Two tiny robots, just 7 inches wide by 2.8 inches tall, made it to the surface and took many pictures as they ‘hopped’ about. The ‘hopping’ is achieved by internal rotating…

Study Says, Oxygen-Rich Water Might Exist on Mars

A team led by scientists at Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which Caltech manages for NASA, has calculated that if liquid water exists on Mars, it could—under specific conditions—contain more oxygen than previously thought possible. According to the model, the levels could even theoretically exceed the threshold needed to support simple aerobic life. That finding runs contrary to the current, accepted view of Mars and its potential for hosting habitable environments. The existence of liquid water on Mars is not a given. Even…

The Moulin Quignon Mystery Deepens

In 1863, Jacques Boucher de Perthes found stone tools and an anatomically modern human jaw at a depth of 16.5 feet in an excavation at the Moulin Quignon quarry in Abbeville, France. The discovery of the human jaw was especially controversial. A commission of leading French and English scientists met at the site to conduct investigations and arrive at conclusions. Several of the English scientists believed that the stone tools and jaw had all been fraudulently introduced into the deposits at Moulin Quignon, to fool…

Fighting Brothers

When discussing esoteric elements that influenced the American Revolution, alternative researchers often present Freemasonry as central to the time. Often overlooked though are the practical elements that made up Freemasonry in the colonies during the mid-eighteenth century. Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American colonies varied in influence as the two sides of the revolution struggled for supremacy. Could an adherent to American independence still swear an oath to a Freemasonic lodge governed by…

Invisible Warfare

Can greater-than-human conflict overflow onto the human plane? Nineteenth century founder of the Theosophical Society Madame Helena P. Blavatsky was so bold as to assert such a thing in the ‘scientific’ age, whereas the ancients seem to have known it well. But could extraterrestrial warfare also engage on the nuclear level? The post-war period has gradually brought to light numerous astounding technologies in possession of the Nazis during World War II—so advanced and unconventional that it is suspected by many that the Germans had access…

Megalithic Tech

The many sacred structures built by ancient peoples had varied purposes. They functioned as places for ceremonial worship and tribal assemblies; tombs where great leaders or saints were buried; astronomical observatories and calendars that were aligned with various celestial objects; and sites that also featured underground springs or wells that were thought to have magical healing properties. These structures had multiple functions, some of them very practical—but let’s focus here on the idea that these sacred structures were specifically designed for directing spiritual energy. It…

The Lost Robots

Artificial Intelligence is the iconic controversy of our times. Yet, complex, even sophisticated robotics is not unique to early twenty-first century technology. Original, surprisingly ingenious examples were actually built and operated by long-lost civilizations, many thousands of years ago. And some android specimens were perhaps more advanced than current levels of applied science. A pair of Roman-era texts describes literally hundreds of different kinds of machines capable of independent movement. Sometime before 70 CE, Pneumatica and Automata were authored by Heron of Alexandria, a teacher at…

Ma’mun’s Passage

The classical story of the discovery of the upper chambers inside the Khufu pyramid at Giza is well known. In the ninth century an Arab governor of Cairo, known as the Caliph al Ma’mun, decided to see for himself what lay inside the Great Pyramid (Khufu pyramid) and began to excavate a tunnel straight through the casing and core blocks with hammers and chisels. Fortuitously for the Caliph, their busy tunneling shook the structure so much that the capstone fell off the end of the…

Relics from the Ice Age?

The alluring and perplexing ancient megalithic temples of Malta and Gozo (the smaller island just north of Malta) have been a destination for travelers throughout the Mediterranean region and beyond for thousands of years. Even in their ruinous states, the temples are incredibly impressive; the largest limestone blocks weigh twenty to forty tons. There is evidence that the temples were not only venerated, but also used and reused, built and rebuilt, over the centuries and millennia. For instance, Bronze Age peoples (sometimes labeled “invaders”) of…

Can Mind Heal Matter?

Transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—a philosophical visionary more complete than any other this nation has produced—identified two components to attaining personal power. One is to “drill.” By this he meant training, rehearsal, education—the repeated application of a skill, over and over, the way a martial artist never stops working his routines. The other is “concentration.” By this he meant you must target the energies of your training at a narrowly fixed aim. A pilot rehearses landings over and over so that he can guide his…

“People living more than seven thousand years ago may have possessed technical knowledge in astronomy and physics more advanced than our current understanding of the same subjects.” —Robert M. Schoch, Geologist, 2002   In 1972, a group of archaeologists were crossing the Egyptian desert, tracking by compass in an area known as Nabta Playa, when they arrived at the shores of a long extinct lake. Stopping for a break, they noticed potsherds at their feet. Intrigued, they returned later to investigate. Following several seasons of…
