Rosslyn Chapel’s Darkest Secret

In “Return to Rosslyn Chapel,” published in Atlantis Rising #48, I revealed my discovery of a Lorraine Cross encoded in Rosslyn’s five-course vaulted ceiling. Wayne Herschel, author of 2003’s The Hidden Records, has now added an­other layer to the mystery by claiming that a Vitruvian Man, a symbol made much of in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, is also encoded there. His claim has led me to Rosslyn’s darkest secret. I had discovered the cross when, upon looking at the ceiling, I noticed that…

The Antimatter Threat

GIVE AND TAKE FROM U.S.A.F. In October, 2004 the San Francisco Chronicle caused a stir by publishing a story indicating that the U.S. Air Force was far advanced in the development of an antimatter weapon. Here are a few excerpts: “Air Force pursuing antimatter weapons “Program was touted publicly, then came official gag order “by Keay Davidson, Chronicle Science Writer “The U.S. Air Force is quietly spending millions of dollars investigating ways to use a radical power source— antimatter, the eerie “mirror” of ordinary matter—in…

Searching for the Little People

NEW FLORES CAVE FOUND In Indonesia archaeologists have now found a large cave on Flores island beneath the one where the remains of a tiny human were located four years ago. The bones which have become known as Homo Floresiensis have generated con­siderable controversy among scientists. On one hand are those who say the 30,000+-year-old skeleton represents a new species of human which they have called the Hobbitts, and on the other are the skeptics who say it is simply a de­formed standard human. New…

The Insecurities of Debunkery

Recently in a couple of arguments with a pair of self-styled experts in the revealed wisdom of the current order, we were told in no uncertain terms that the writers of this publication were not qualified, academically speaking, to dis­cuss the topics which they have dared to do in these pages. Since both gentlemen seemed rather irate, we, in the in­terest of peace, referred one of them to those among our ranks who hold high degrees from exalted institutions, but before we tried that approach…

Escape from Death

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 Fate of the Mayas Time is an abstraction of death, such that appeasement of death’s omnipotence, called inevitable end, “buys time” and good-fortune, from death’s WMD, the cataclysm, which prefigures doomsday. Ancient lore claims that floods of human blood have punished mankind…

SHOCKING NEWS FROM MOON AND MARS Maverick researchers like Dave Talbott and Walt Thornhill have long argued that many of the strange phenomena ob­served in the universe at large and locally in the solar system, such as the ropelike rills on Europa (one of Jupiter’s moons) and the gigantic canyon on Mars (the Valles Marinaris) are the result of enormous electrical discharges, great arcs of energy between planets or moons. These great bolts of lightning, they believe, go far toward explaining many ancient mysteries. Their…

QUANTUM COMPUTING ARRIVES? The day when we will be able to accomplish such breakthroughs as time travel and large-scale teleportation may nev­er come, but, if it does, according to the conventional wisdom, it will certainly not be before the development of quantum computing. Such technologies and indeed many others of even more immediate use will, it has been sug­gested, require computing power virtually light years beyond our current models. Quantum computing, the technol­ogy which will open the door to possibilities now only dreamed of, is…

WHO’S IN YOUR HEAD? Are secret government agencies invading the minds of targeted individuals with inner voices? Apparently a rapidly growing number of people believe the answer is yes and, moreover, that they have been desig­nated as recipients. According to a lengthy feature article published in the Washington Post in January, a growing community of such people on the Internet is sharing their experiences and seeking relief from what they believe is a concerted government effort to interfere with their thoughts by beaming voices into…

SCIENCE CAN TRACK BULLETS NOW Very soon U.S. soldiers may be able to operate like Keanu Reeves did in The Matrix—at least the part about being able to observe approaching bullets. Variable Acuity Superpixel Technology (VAST), a new technology developed by Nova Sensors of Solvang, California for the Air Force, can track an incoming bullet. Someday that might lead to rapidly ex­panding bullet-proof clothing, and since the system can track even slow-moving objects like people and cars, there may be applications for traffic or robotic…

The Tortured Life and Times of Wilhelm Reich

This is the year that researchers of Wilhelm Reich’s discoveries have been waiting for. Dr. Wilhelm Reich was a scientist whose downfall came when he said a federal court judge can’t rule on the validi­ty of science matters. Reich was convicted on a charge of contempt of court and was escorted to prison. Shortly be­fore he was to be released from prison, he suddenly died of a heart attack. Before he was imprisoned, Reich made a will, and in it he ordered that his research…

Evidence for Extreme Human Antiquity in Greece

How long have humans been present in Greece? We know quite a bit about the classical Greek civilization. But what about before that? In Timaeus, Plato tells how the famous Greek lawmaker Solon visited Egypt. And there he began to speak to an Egyptian priest about the ancient history of the Greeks. He spoke of Phoroneus and Niobe. According to some an­cient Greek writers, Phoroneus was one of the primordial humans and Niobe was his consort. Solon also spoke of Deucalion and Pyrrha. Deucalion and…

Was the Ark Electrical?

Why are illustrations showing the Ark or Arc of the Covenant with facing angels, as in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” bogus? The answer can be found in the Old Testament. In Exodus 20:4, the second of the Ten Commandments declares, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water below.” Also, Deuteronomy 27: 15 warns, “Cursed be the man…

On Knowing God & More

It’s 1970 and a young Deepak Chopra sits in front of a slot machine in Las Vegas. He’s just arrived from India to com­plete a medical residency and has brought all of $8 with him; enough, he decides, to warrant a gamble. Perhaps in a preview of how America would receive him, Lady Luck smiled, transforming the sum into $1,500. “It felt great!” re­members the now-famous author whom Time named as one of the top 100 heroes / icons of the twenty-first century. “But in…

The Untimely Demise of William Shakespeare

On March of 1616, William Shakespeare was back in his hometown of Stratford where he lived as a grain dealer, tax collector, landlord and all around businessman. He was in fine health and was coming up on his fifty-second birthday when something caused him to contemplate his mortality. He decided it was time to get his estate in order and made a will. What caused the sudden concern? Six days before, on March 19, Sir Walter Raleigh had been released from the Tower. Sir Walter…

Opening the Door to Sacred Geometry

I had trouble with calculus in college. The concept of mathematics describing geometric shapes just did not resonate in my brain. Yes, I knew the formula for the circumference of a circle, and some Pythagorean stuff about triangles, but I never realized it could all get so complicated. Over the course of the semester, the basic premise slowly pene­trated, and I began to speculate that perhaps God is simply a great mathematician. Maybe all He really had to do to create the universe was to…

In The Fields of the Blessed

“The doors of the sky are opened, the doors of the firmament are thrown open at dawn for Horus of the Gods. He goes up to the Field of Reeds, he bathes in the Field of Reeds.”—Utterance 325, Pyramid Texts In numerous ancient traditions there is a description of a hidden and blessed place linked by a chain of symbols, a repetition of place names (the Reed Place), and references to this place as a door to a parallel dimension. As I docu­ment in my…

The Skull in the Pyramid

Illinois’ newest pyramid is the private home of the James Onan family. Until the place was closed to outsiders a few years ago, visitors from around the world flocked the 18-acre estate in which a gleaming pyramid stands surrounded by an 8-foot-high wall decorated with hieroglyphic motifs. Commanding immediate attention is a 200-ton colossus, the 40-foot-tall statue of a pharaoh, the tallest free-standing monument in the state. A flight of stone steps leads to a darkened doorway atop a large, gravel mound at the south…

San Francisco & Philadelphia

Freemasons and Philadelphia are as American as apple pie (see Steven Sora’s article “The Heretics Who Lit the Way for America” in Atlantis Rising #63). Even before America’s independence, as Sora indicated, there was a strong Ma­sonic community thriving in the “City of Brotherly Love.” Ben Franklin, the city’s great Revolutionary War hero, was also a prolific freemason and in 1754 he dedicated the very first masonic building in America, the Philadelphia Free­masons’ Lodge. Another of the city’s revolutionary Hero’s and freemasons was one Francis…

“It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end.”—Ursula K. Le Guin At the beginning of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, (Princeton University Press, 1949 & 1968) arguably Joseph Campbell’s finest book, the author asserts, “It would not be too much to say that myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the Cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation.” In our time myth is considered to be more like a…

Galactic Alignments & More

This publication has been accused of making “conventional thought” a kind of whipping boy. The implication would be that this “conventional thought” is itself innocent in the matter and is getting a bad rap from the likes of us. We, on the other hand, convinced that the Conventionals are not exactly giving us the straight story, wonder why. Could it be that they are affected by intergalactic forces? In light of our first review this time, the latter seems a possibility worth considering. The other…
