Power from the Nightside

Mobil and Exxon won’t like it. Neither will the nuclear power industry. Even solar power enthusiasts may frown in disbelief. But give them time. All new ideas, especially those that reverse conventional wisdom (180 degrees exactly), fall on deaf ears, unwilling ears. Take polar energy, for example: that glorious spectacle of colored lights painting the night sky of the northern and southern latitudes. Auroral readings taken in the Van Allen Belt are on the order of 3 million megawatts. That’s four times the power used…

Human Evolution & the Cygnus Constellation?

The evolution of modern man has long been one of the greatest mysteries of time. When did “modern” humans first appear? When did they make the first art? When did they build the first temples? When were the first true cities con­structed? And what was it that inspired these developments? These questions form a huge puzzle but the puzzle’s pieces continue to change. For example, what archaeological site across the world is accepted as the “first city?” What specific caves contain the “first art?” Nearly…

Mussolini’s Roswell?

While events surrounding Roswell, New Mexico sixty years ago are world famous, it was not the first time that a crashed alien space-craft was allegedly found and concealed by government officials. Yet, its existence is virtually un­known outside Italy despite an abundance of authenticated contemporary documents confirming a downed UFO be­fore World War II. To make the long, somewhat complex history of this Close Encounter of the Second Kind accessible for Atlantis Rising readers, a chronological outline pieced together from various accounts serves to clarify…

Dealing with Visitors from Other Worlds

On some South Pacific islands in the 1940s the native tribes came to believe that western manufactured stuff (“Cargo”) had been created by divine spirits in the sky and was intended for their people. They objected to the unfair­ness of sending such bounty to white people alone and formed what were called “cargo cults” to enlist the gods in their cause. Meanwhile on other islands the natives worshipped the Americans who flew in the “cargo.” The phenom­enon was studied and written up by celebrated anthropologist…

Digging Up the Truth

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”). Electrical Ark A very interesting article (“Was the Ark Electrical,” AR #63). Besides the fact that the ark could have been electri­cal, it was also probably radioactive, because any guard that would come into contact with the ark, would get sick. Most likely radiation…

CPAK TO HOST WEST, SCHOCH, HANCOCK & BAUVAL IN SAN DIEGO The four researchers who, in the mid 90s, shook up the public and academia with powerful challenges to convention­al theories of civilized origins, will make a rare joint appearance this fall in San Diego. John Anthony West, Robert Schoch, Graham Hancock, and Robert Bauval will all be present at the CPAK conference on the campus of the Uni­versity of California at San Diego on the weekend of October 6-7. In 1994 West and Schoch…

NEW ORION CORRELATION? Researcher Scott Creighton may have discovered a new dimension to the alignment between the pyramids at Giza and the constellation Orion. According to Creighton the so-called queens’ pyramids, two sets of three small pyramids each, next to the largest and smallest of the main Giza pyramids, are aligned with the three belt stars of Orion at two precise points in time exactly 12,960 years apart. The group to the south of Menkaure’s pyramid were aligned, he says, with the belt stars in…

GIANT CRYSTALS FOUND IN MEXICAN CAVE Crystals have long excited the human imagination. Atlantis is said to have employed a high science of crystals to run its technology. The Vikings are reported to have used them in navigation. Today new-agers associate them with light and magic and carry them everywhere, but the late Kurt Vonnegut Jr. had a different take. In the novel Cat’s Cradle he facetiously imagines a type of crystal ice (“Ice 9”) which freezes at room temperature. When a few drops acciden­tally…

RESEARCH: PRAYER WORKS A new study by one of the better-known scientists in the field of prayer research has confirmed the value of the prac­tice. Dr. David R. Hodge has just completed a comprehensive analysis of 17 major studies on the effects of intercesso­ry prayer and concluded that the net result confirms a positive effect. Hodge, a professor at Arizona State University, suggests that while previous studies have produced somewhat con­tradictory results, his systematic analysis of all available studies produces a much clearer picture.

The End of Invisible Breakthroughs

If the coming energy revolution had a theme song, its lyrics would have remained much the same for decades. One refrain is about breakthrough energy discoveries being ignored by the established mindset. However, I believe we’re approaching a time when the breakthroughs will appear evident to a wide swath of the public, with or without the blessing of gatekeepers. This theme comes to mind for several reasons: At the American Physical Society conference in Denver this spring, significant developments in “cold fusion” were announced by…

The Mystery of the Nampa Image

In 1889, workers were drilling a water well near Nampa, in southwest Idaho. In his book Origin and Antiquity of Man (1912, pp. 266-267), geologist George Frederick Wright (1838-1921) reported, “The record of the well shows that…they had penetrated first about fifty feet of soil, then about fifteen feet of basalt, and afterwards passed through alternate beds of clay and quicksand…down to a depth of about three hundred feet.” One of the owners of the drilling company, Mark A. Kurtz, was checking the material brought…

John Searl Makes a Comeback

John Searl is the very stuff of myth and legend, at least, in the arcane circles of antigravity and over-unity energy, a maverick inventor whose new power system back in the 60s, the Searl Effect Generator (SEG), suddenly “sprouted wings,” as it were, and took off. What really happened, though, as told by Searl himself, is actually even more re­markable. You see, in trying to ground his unexpectedly levitating SEG, the cure—successively adding mass—only made the problem worse. If we’re to believe him, as described…

Echoes of Atlantis from Homer

The Homeric tales of the Iliad and the Odyssey do not add up. There was no “Troy” in Turkey until Alexander built one. There are no giant waves and major tides in the inlet of the Bosporus straits closest to the alleged Troy. There was no alliance of Greeks in 1200 B.C. as they themselves begin their history with a traditional date of 776 B.C. Nor was there a Trojan Empire in Anatolia where the powerful Hittite empire ruled and recorded history meticulously. History has…

The Fall of the Royal Society

Orthodox history tells us that Robert Hooke was a minor character with no accomplishments to speak of, certainly none to equal those of the majestic Isaac Newton. Instead we learn that he was a jack-of-all-trades who started many projects and finished few, and we discover that he was a colorless, misshapen recluse who attempted, but failed, to claim credit for discovering that Kepler’s inverse square law could be mathematically connected to Galileo’s inverse square measurement of gravity, the underlying idea that led to Newton’s Theory…

F.L. Wright vs. G.I. Gurdjieff

Roger Friedland, a cultural sociologist, and Howard Zellman, an architect, have written a very good book about a strange and little-known subject, the Taliesin Fellowship of Frank Lloyd Wright (The Fellowship, HarperCollins, NY, 2006). Wright, himself, is certainly well known, through his buildings, his writings on architecture, his autobiogra­phy, a number of other biographies, and a popular novel, The Fountainhead, which became a successful motion pic­ture. Oddly enough, however, until Friedland and Zellman published The Fellowship, little was known of the school that Wright set…

Wholistic Anatomy

I may be wrong, but I’m guessing you probably weren’t high school jocks, nor were you devastated if your favorite college football team didn’t make it to the playoffs. No. I’m thinking our readers are frontrunners (so to speak) at­tracted to cerebral pursuits or bodymind disciplines like yoga, Tai Chi, kayaking—even tennis or golf, especially if played in the ‘inner’ manner that includes a spiritual component. Even so, you may be missing the most important aspect of a fully satisfying embodiment—somatic awareness, or kinesthetic intelligence….

The Return of the King of the World

The legends and scriptures of the Near and Far East are full of references to an ancient “King of the World” who sup­posedly ruled the earth thousands or even millions of years ago and is destined to make his reappearance on the world stage as we inch towards a new age. The Tibetans maintain the King of the World resides in Shambhala, the fabled Land of the Immortals, and has been patiently waiting for hundreds and thousands of years for an opportunity to lead his…

Apostle of Mu

James Churchward’s The Lost Continent of Mu is a classic book that has withstood the test of time. Like Ignatius Donnelly’s Atlantis: The Antediluvian World (first published in 1882), The Lost Continent of Mu has never been out of print. Its message, while somewhat dated, still resonates with readers interested in the occult and ancient civiliza­tions. Colonel Churchward was a fascinating man—a world traveler, and a seasoned occultist—who, like many today, was exasperated by the “experts” of his day and their myopic reasoning and narrow…

Chiron

There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, pure, simple and useful life.—Booker T. Washington I have often observed that astronomers have a keen sense of myth. Chiron was the first-known member of a new class of icy, dual-natured planetoids called Centaurs after the mythical race of horse/man beings. Centaurs are comparable in size to asteroids but similar to comets in composition and behavior, and based on their composition, Centaurs are either blue like Chiron or very red like…
