National Secrets

The reviews are in for National Treasure, Hollywood’s take on the esoteric origins of America, starring Nicholas Cage. The critics hated it, but the good news is, the public loved it. The story centers on Ben Gates (Cage), a descendant of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The signers, it seems, may have left more than a blueprint for Democracy on the Declaration. America’s founders, led by freemasons, had, the movie suggests, hidden an actual treasure, indeed, the legendary treasure of the…

Could the Great Pyramid Sing?

An ancient traveler across the desert would probably have picked up the sound from miles away. It was a deep bass note, booming out over the Nile Valley, perhaps accompanied by another, slightly higher note, the two of them forming an eerie, resonating chord. As the sound grew louder and more persistent in his ears, the traveler would have been filled with awe and wonder. It would have seemed like the voice of the Great God, the Lord of the Universe himself, calling him to…

Roerich, FDR & the Meru Super-Antenna

It was March of 1933. The Great Depression was suffocating the American spirit. The country was bankrupt. The Dust Bowl was grinding her breadbasket to powder. Enter Franklin D. Roosevelt, a wounded king who, like King Arthur, rose from his throne and promised a new deal to transform this wasteland into a flourishing garden once more. Love him or hate him, FDR’s uncanny fulfillment of the wounded Grail king archetype is profound. As I document in my book The A~tomic Christ, in true Arthurian fashion…

The Popular Imagination

Is the media starting to get it? By ‘it,’ we mean an appreciation for the ideas on which this magazine likes to dwell but which are usually ignored or derided by the so-called mainstream press. It could be argued that recent offerings from Hollywood show signs of an awakening of some sort. National Treasure, the movie (discussed in this issue’s cover story), for instance, has—while presented as nothing but fictional entertainment—introduced the public to some of the hidden, albeit factual, by-ways of American history frequently…

Looking for the Logic

Writing to Atlantis Rising, via snail mail or e-mail is the best, but not the only way to make your views known to our readers. There are also “forums” on the Atlantis Rising web site (go to www. AtlantisRising.com and select “Discussions”).   Searching for Planet X I read Sitchin’s articles and much is not logical to me. First Nibiru supposedly was occupied then crashed into a planet creating the asteroids, which was witnessed by the ancient Sumerians. According to recent articles, this happened about…

DOE’s Review Committee Cracks Cold Fusion Door Cold Fusion is back on the tabletop. A new Department of Energy study may fall short of the kind of ringing endorsement long dreamed of by lonely researchers in the LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) field, but the door is now clearly open to some serious work. Scientists who reviewed cold fusion data during the last few months were largely split over what the evidence showed, but agreed that more research is required. Considering history, that development alone…

The Mega-Tsunami Threat Explored The day-after-Christmas disaster of 2004 in Asia reminded many of the ever-present worldwide threat from earth changes beneath our feet. The strongest quake in more than forty years measured 9 on the Richter scale, generated massive tidal waves more than 30 feet high, and killed over 150,000 thousand in Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and the tourist isles of Thailand. When you are rationing out your worry time for 2005, though, don’t forget to include mega-tsunamis. Some scientists have begun to fret…

Indian Spies Embrace Remove Viewing According to IndiaDaily.com the Indian intelligence agency RAW has been making heavy use of remote viewing (RV) to bolster surveillance of its adversaries. The report comes years after American spy agencies, in the wake of much public embarrassment, had reportedly abandoned the technique. New Delhi, though, seems undeterred by such concerns. According to the report, the Indians are combining the RV with satellite technologies and are having a great deal of success. The technique is being credited with a number…

Still More News

Study to Test NDE Truth Controversy within the scientific community has raged in recent years over the so-called Near-Death Experience (NDE). In many such cases, individuals, who have recovered, after being declared clinically dead have described, among other things, being outside their physical bodies and witnessing their own bodies from above. Despite the seeming ability of such patients to provide information that would have been impossible for them to otherwise know, some skeptics have disputed the authenticity of the experiences. Some, like Michael Shermer, publisher…

Sovereign Nations Fund Clean Energy

While learning about an upcoming symposium on batteries and motors, I had the privilege of talking with Native American tribal leader Ed McGaa, known as Eagle Man. I couldn’t help thinking that if Eagle Man were scientifically inclined, which he says he isn’t, he’d take notice of the late Austrian forester and inventor Viktor Schauberger’s ideas. Harmony with nature was Schauberger’s theme, and it’s also McGaa’s. For countless generations, his people walked the talk. Before we get to his story, however, let’s find out why…

The Flores Island Hominin: Old Hobbits Die Hard

For over a century, scientists have gotten into the habit of interpreting every archaeological discovery through the lens of the Darwinian theory of evolution. And it seems like this old habit is very hard to break, as evidenced by a discovery published late last year. In the October 28, 2004 issue of Nature, archaeologists announced the discovery of a new hominin. A few years ago they would have used the word hominid, to indicate the taxonomic family that includes all living humans and all their…

The Search for Atlantis Off Cyprus

In November of 2014, several international news organizations including Reuters and the BBC flashed the startling story worldwide that evidence of Atlantis had been found near Cyprus. Citing the claims of U.S. researcher Robert Sarmast, the reports focused on new sonar scanning evidence, obtained over the previous few weeks, which revealed apparently man-made structures. For the last few years Sarmast has been arguing that Plato’s Atlantis is, in fact, located near Cyprus. In his book, The Discovery of Atlantis (which has become something of a…

Mystery of the Andes

The Bolivian altiplano is an unlikely place for an early civilization to develop. Even though the region sits close to the equator the altiplano (high plain) is situated at a 12,500’ elevation, too high up in the Andes to gain much from the equatorial heat. The air is thin and does not retain much moisture or heat. Daily temperatures show wide fluctuations and frosts can occur any time of year making agriculture a constant struggle. The Andean cordillera soars above Lake Titicaca, which is the…

Who Were Adam & Eve?

Having already looked deeply into the biblical texts, and discovered many hidden meanings and messages that radically altered the standard interpretation of history and theology, I thought it was about time I looked at the story of Adam and Eve. My previous books, Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs and Solomon, Falcon of Sheba, have demonstrated that the Israelite leaders were actually pharaohs and priests of Egypt, and that much of Israelite theology was derived from the theology of the ‘heretic pharaoh,’ Akhenaton. But I had…

Ancient Egyptian Thoughts & the Brain

Many impediments face us modern people who wish to gain a correct (if incomplete) understanding of the thought of the Ancient Egyptians (AEs). The greatest of these is our own consciousness. Our consciousness is not merely different from that of the AEs, it is diametrically opposed to the consciousness of those philosopher-scientist-priests whose enigmatic teachings we wish to comprehend. The gap is so profound, the rift so broad and the unwillingness of our own consciousness so pervasive that few brave the pounding seas of a…

The Quantum Menace

Homo Sapiens stands poised on the razor’s edge. On one side lie perhaps the greatest breakthroughs in the entire history of the species. On the other lie devastation, possible species extinction, and even outright destruction of the planet’s biosphere. Homo Sapiens, you see, is schizoid. Right now, it is profoundly divided and at war with itself. No, not just the usual nations slaughtering each others’ members and their own people; this time super weapons of unimaginable power are reportedly in the hands of terrorists and…

Spreading the Goddess Gospel

After The Da Vinci Code topped the best-seller list, author Dan Brown picked up the phone and called Margaret Starbird. He wanted to acknowledge the primary concept he had gleaned from her work: the idea that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene. Starbird’s books, The Woman with the Alabaster Jar and The Goddess in the Gospels had given him ample research to back the material in his page-turning thriller. Starbird, in turn, got her food for thought from Holy Blood, Holy Grail, the premise…

Echoes of Lemuria

After years of traveling along the western shores of America and across Polynesia, the reality of a former high civilization—man-kind’s first civilization—gradually revealed itself in the numerous traditions of numerous tribal peoples I collected. This lost homeland was known to various population groups by different names, but the most commonly encountered were “Mu” and “Lemuria,” which came to a sudden end in the distant past when “fire from heaven” precipitated first a global conflagration, then a world-class flood. For example, New Zealand’s Maori preserve the…

Astrology and Alchemy

“Thou shalt separate the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross, suavely and with great ingenuity.” —Hermes Trismegistus, The Emerald Tablet According to legend, Alexander the Great found the Emerald Tablet when he discovered the tomb of Hermes. The words on the magical tablet had been etched into the green stone and were clasped between the hands of the entombed master magician. Most scholars believe the story to be myth, but the tale speaks to the archaic origins of what is commonly associated…

Ever wonder when Hollywood is going to wake up and realize that there are a whole lot of people out there starving for films that venture into the world of quantum physics, the meaning of life and higher consciousness? Instead, we see Sponge-Bob… Square Pants and a predictable assortment of films where special effects and a few celebrities are expected to disguise their emptiness. The Matrix (Part 1) gave us some hope… but soon soured into a series of meaningless, mechanical sequels. Fortunately for us,…
