Atlantis in the Bahamas

The 1968 discovery of the Bimini Road created an ongoing, contentious issue between self-described “skeptics” and those who argue that the structure was manmade. The 1600-foot long formation lies in about 15 feet of water off North Bimini and has an “inverted J-shape.” It is comprised of rows of stone blocks, mostly square and rectangular, but in many areas the stones are more irregular. When it was discovered, the formation was thought to be the remains of a collapsed wall or perhaps a road, and…

The Indian Antigravity Report

On the other side of the world an extraordinary heritage from a dimly remembered ancient past is apparently undergoing an astonishing new exploration which may already have produced a stunning discovery. The place? India, a teeming country with a culture millennia old. The heritage? Antigravity technology, embodied in huge, cryptic Sanskrit poems, fundamental to the Hindu religion. The researchers? Some of the best military, scientific, and engineering brains in India. Atlantis Rising’s discovery of the research came, amazingly enough, in the early stages of researching…

General Pike & the Klan

When Dan Brown releases his book The Solomon Key later this year, one thing is certain: it will be a bestseller. With The Da Vinci Code selling close to 20 million copies, anticipation is growing regarding the next Robert Langdon thriller. What is less certain is what this next novel will be about. However, by studying hints and clues left by Dan Brown on the cover of The Da Vinci Code, on his website and in media interviews, the attentive reader can discern with confidence…

Theory vs. Evidence

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.”)   The Theory of Evolution Once a given hypothesis has been tested over and over and shown to fit the available data very well, it might begin to be regarded as theory. Theory is essentially fact, but scientists are honest enough to know that…

Is There Life on Mars Right Now? A New Report Says Yes—or Does It? The possibility of Life on Mars at some point in the ancient past continues to stimulate the imaginations of even the most conventional of scientists. That does not mean, however, careers cannot be blown by suggesting that life might exist there right now. In February the website Space.com had the temerity to publish findings said to be forthcoming in the science journal Nature which would argue that, indeed, there was strong…

Shroud Dating Debunked The Turin Shroud controversy has been resurrected once again. In 1988, radiocarbon dating tests for the reputed burial cloth of Jesus by laboratories in Oxford, Zurich and Tucson, Arizona had claimed date of the Shroud’s origins at from 1260 to 1390 A.D. At the time skeptics trumpeted that the cloth had been proved a hoax, possibly made to attract the profitable medieval pilgrimage business. At that point, many believed, the controversy had been put to rest. However, late in January of this…

Machine Detects Global Awareness A machine that can see the future is the very real possibility now emerging from an ongoing scientific experiment in world consciousness. Beginning in the 1990s the Global Consciousness Project set out to investigate whether there might be a previously unknown interconnection between the unconscious minds of people the world over. 40 electronic devices designed to produce a random series of ones and zeroes (yeses and nos) were placed around the world and their output was tracked over the Internet. Statistically…

Still More News

Manitoba Legislature Is Talisman, Study Argues Books like Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code and movies like National Treasure are generating a wave of popular interest in the hidden agendas of our ancestors. Many, previously unfamiliar with much of history’s subtext, are now astonished to discover secret symbolism in public places and find themselves wondering what else may have escaped the notice of their school teachers. Now from Canada comes a report on the esoteric dimensions of the Manitoba Legislature. According to Toronto’s Globe and Mail…

When the Political Frontier Is in the Stars

For drama, this life story matches those in best-selling books and films: Through his own efforts, idealistic young lawyer rises to prominence in New York city, stirs up action in the Carter administration White House, runs smack into the wall of military secrecy, survives directed-energy attacks, and points our attention toward the stars—toward Universe Society. However, that lawyer, Alfred Webre III, isn’t writing his memoirs yet. Middle-aged now, he remains an idealistic scholar and would prefer that you focus on his concepts. His new book…

Morphing My Genetic Fields in Montreal

Last May, I was a speaker at the Awakening to Spirit Conference in Montreal. I have already written about this in a previous issue of Atlantis Rising, in connection with my meeting Stephan Schwartz, an expert in remote viewing and psychic archaeology. This time, I will talk about my encounter with Rupert Sheldrake. It is one of the things I most like about attending conferences—the chance to hear and speak with researchers whose works I have read and appreciated, but whom I have never met…

Marconi, The Mysterious

The relationship between Nikola Tesla and Guglielmo Marconi is a fascinating one! While Tesla has become a popular figure to revisionist scientists in the last ten years, Marconi is still largely unknown and seen as a usurper of Tesla’s inventions. Yet Marconi (1874-1937) was a brilliant scientist, and, in fact, Tesla’s close friend. Unlike Tesla, Marconi was a good businessman, socially adept, and was able to manage a sizable financial and manufacturing empire. When Marconi allegedly died in 1937 (while still a relatively young and…

Challenging the Reality Consensus

The movie What the Bleep Do We Know!? has people talking about what constitutes reality and how our consciousness affects it. In this film, the strange realm of Quantum Physics serves as the launching point into an alternate perspective of the universe. The message of the film is simple: our consciousness does have a role in creating the reality we experience. This message has attracted the interest of a wide range of people. Groups like the Unitarian churches, the Bahá’í faith and the Institute of…

The New Frontiers of Mind Control

On November 28th, 1953 at 2 a.m., a man crashed through a closed window and fell to his death from the tenth floor of the Statler Hotel in New York City. He was identified as Frank Olson, a bacteriologist with the U.S. Army Research Center at Fort Detrick, Maryland. He had fallen from a room he shared with another scientist, Robert Lashbrook. It was ruled a suicide. Twenty-two years later in 1975, William Colby, then CIA director, declassified documents that changed the complexion of the…

Conversation with a Blue-Eyed Yogi

Magic happens anywhere worlds meet,” writes Rampuri, author of Baba, Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Yogi (which Deepak Chopra says “explores the true intersections of Eastern and Western thought”). “This includes airports, crossroads, the seashore, graveyards, hospitals and temples, but the places where the Ordinary World meets the Extraordinary World require pilgrimage, either internal or external.” A Paramahansa Yogananda story in reverse, Rampuri (he doesn’t think it “serves anything” to disclose his given American name), one of three sons of a Beverly Hills surgeon, left America…

The Force Fields of Earth

The principal meridian spanning the globe is 30 N. latitude. The Great Pyramid and the mouth of the Nile sit on that meridian as does the mouth of the Mississippi River, the Tigris-Euphrates River and the sites of various ancient civilizations. A band of energy also spans the earth just north and south of the 19.5° N. latitude. We could envision it as a planetary-wide force-field that conducts massive flows of air above the surface and molten lava below ground. In Mexico a string of…

Secrets of the Hohokam

In 1649, a party of armored Spanish soldiers in the company of one Father Keno, a Franciscan priest, rode on horseback among puzzling, ancient ruins during their foray north into what today is south central Arizona. It was the first time white men had seen these enigmatic structures, but it would not be until the latter part of the 20th century that the significance of the ruins would be understood and acknowledged. It really must have been a sight. Lance-bearing conquistadors overlooking this abandoned Hohokam…

Searching for the Builders of Nan Madol

One of the world’s supreme ancient mysteries is also among its most obscure. In a remote corner of the western Pacific Ocean, nearly a thousand miles north of New Guinea and two thousand, three hundred miles south of Japan, stand the massive ruins of a long-dead city. Incongruously built on a coral reef only five feet above sea-level between the equator and the eleventh north parallel, Nan Madol is a series of rectangular islands and colossal towers choked by draping vegetation. During its prehistoric lifetime,…

The Ancient Quest for Meaning in the Stars

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend.” —Kurt Vonnegut   The body of knowledge we call astrology has accrued over millennia, correlating countless observations of “as above, so below.” This ancient discipline seems to operate in a Quantum Mechanics fashion, using the language of archetypes to describe the nature of energy expressing in three dimensions of space and the fourth dimension of time. In today’s world astronomy is seen as science, and measures the sky domain, while…
