The Pyramid Electric

In January 2011, an important and historic exploration took place inside the Great Pyramid. However, the remarkable evidence that was discovered seemed to pass into history without fuss or fanfare. A small article in the New Scientist magazine, with the promise of a future scholarly report on the findings, seemed to be an extremely muted response to an event that has traditionally been promoted to attract millions of “pyramid watchers” across the world. Has the interest in pyramid discoveries waned, or was this exploration another…

Indians & Aliens

Most readers of this magazine are familiar with ancient legends that seem to describe human encounters with extraterrestrials in prehistoric times—Ezekiel and the wheels within wheels, stories of sky-gods in ancient Egypt, winged gods in Mesopotamia, the Dogon tribe in Africa. Less well known are Native American legends that may also point to an awareness of beings from the skies, of actual encounters with aliens. Any number of New Age books and websites now purport to contain accounts of Native American interactions with ETs and…

Return Engagements

Do you believe in reincarnation? Have you lived before? Will you come to live again in another physical body after you die? Several of the major world religions and cultures around the world have some belief in reincarnation. By some estimates, as many as a quarter of people worldwide hold such beliefs. How would you respond if your child began telling you a story about who he had been ‘before’ and included a list of very specific details, including names and places, about his previous…

Mysteries in the Fields

Academic physics has finally decided to apply itself to the crop circle enigma. In the August issue of Physics World, a professor from the University of Oregon has taken a crack at explaining just how the astonishing diagrams and patterns which appear in fields all over the world, especially in England, could have come to be. Richard Taylor, director of the Materials Science Institute at U. of O. is clearly impressed with what he has observed, but his theories, alas, raise more questions than they…

Secrets of the Ancients

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. (You can go to www.Atlantis Rising.com and select “Discussions”.) Runes The Runes, (“Gods of the Runes,” by Frank Joseph, A.R. #89), like all occult paradigms, are propaganda. Their purpose is to divert/pervert the Truth. But since propaganda is deception, the propagators are themselves deluded. Yet to truly lie, one must…

MAN-MADE BAHAMAS STRUCTURE DATED TO BEFORE ICE AGE Material in a complex, man-made, underwater structure in the Bahamas has been carbon dated to over 20,000 years BCE. Researchers for the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) have been investigating the underwater remains of what appears to be a collapsed multi-room building. Originally reported in Atlantis Rising #77 (September/October 2009), the investigation by the husband-and-wife archaeological team of Drs. Greg and Lora Little has culminated in the newly-released Carbon 14 dating report. Located in an area…

Vast Tunnel Complex 12,000 Years Old The familiar image of stone age man, clad, in skins and dragging his woman by the hair is in dire need of a reset. Far from being an ignorant savage, it is clear he was, at the least, a great engineer, responsible for many megalithic structures which would be difficult to reproduce today. Now, new evidence shows that he was an amazing tunnel builder as well. German archaeologist Heinrich Kusch says that the remains of a vast network of…

Does Global Warming Offend Aliens? The argument over global warming has become even more like a theological debate. In sermons defending their chosen position, advocates on all sides do not hesitate to invoke higher authority. Now a new report by scientists at NASA and Pennsylvania State University argues that the sorry state of Earth’s environment might prompt an advanced alien invader to kill off the human race in order to protect the universe itself from potential future harm. Such an action might even win the…

Escape from a Black Hole? It Can Happen Black holes may not be as difficult to escape as we once thought. In fact, according to research at England’s University of York, gravity itself may not actually be one of the fundamental forces of nature. Up until now, the conventional view has been that black holes are objects in space which are so massive and compact that their gravity actually bends space itself and swallows up anything that gets too close. No information, it has been…

Did Ancient Shamans Know Secrets of the Wave?

In a recent conversation with Toby Grotz, I again had the privilege of glimpsing the big picture of an emerging future science. It’s based on a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Throughout history and prehistory, individuals have momentarily seen beyond the material world into the non-material. They peer more deeply into creation and perceive non-physical spiraling energy; they see the results of invisible vortices that create matter and destroy and create again endlessly. The same dynamic is everywhere, from the galactic down to…

Dating the Oldest Cut Marks on Bone

In August 2010, Nature, one of the world’s most authoritative scientific journals, reported that ancient hominins (ape men) used stone tools to cut flesh from bones about 3.4 million years ago (McPherron, S. P. et al. Nature no. 466, 2010, pp. 857-860). This, it was claimed, is about a million years earlier than any other previous evidence for such behavior. The evidence for the behavior came from fossil animal bones showing butchering marks on them. The bones were found in the Lower Awash Valley of…

The Water Dimension

Decades ago, when I was a NORAD Intelligence Officer, I was also a UFO investigator. This was an additional duty, since UFO investigation was no longer a responsibility of USAF intelligence due to a regulation change from AFR-200-2 to AFR 80-17. One day I received a report from a civilian who had seen a UFO over the city of Duluth, Minnesota. Then I got a report from another civilian who had seen, presumably, the same UFO west of the city only a few minutes later….

Mysteries of the Effigy Mounds

When early nineteenth century pioneers first crossed into the upper middle west of North America, they found a region later known as the state of Wisconsin blanketed with more than 10,000 landscaped images. After only a few decades, virtually all of them were obliterated by the farmer’s plow but not before they were documented by surveyors. As such, the bioglyphs mostly survive as line drawings, but at least a few samples still exist intact. They provide an inkling of a vast, artistic canvas long since…

The Perilous Plight of Rockall Island

There are several North Atlantic islands that are little more than the tops of mountains growing from the sea floor. Possibly one of the smallest lies 180 miles from St. Kilda, an island belonging to Scotland and 270 miles from Donegal in Ireland. Called Rockall in the Shipping Forecast, issued by the British Meteorological Office, it is the focus of a struggle between four nations as well as the new sovereign nation of Waveland. Oddly enough, fewer people have actually made a successful landing on…

The Paraffin Mold Experiments

“It is very absurd, if a truth can be absurd.” So stated renowned French scientist Charles Richet, referring to the results of some experiments that he and Dr. Gustave Geley, the director of the International Metaphysical Institute (Institut Metapsychique International) in Paris, had carried out with Franek Kluski, a Polish medium, during November and December 1920. The two scientists succeeded in having “entities”—a more acceptable word to scientists than “spirits”—dip their hands and feet, and even part of the face of one, into some paraffin…

The Brownings and the Medium

May 7, 2012, will be the 200th anniversary of the birth of Robert Browning (1812-1889), the great English Victorian poet to whom we owe such works as The Pied Piper of Hamelin and Pippa Passes. If, on that birthday, the poet were to be awakened from his grave for a day to join in the celebrations, he would be appalled and disgusted by the overheated “2012” talk of rapture, catastrophe, apocalypse, and shifting realities. Browning was a tough-minded, near-Agnostic Christian deeply interested in science, who…

Places of the Builder Gods

If we had been given the choice of incarnating in a period such as 16,000 BC, the world would have looked a lot different than it does today. This was the time of the last glacial maximum, when more of the Earth’s landmass was exposed. During this period Australia and New Guinea formed a massive continent; the British Isles were joined to each other and to Europe; the Black Sea, the North Sea, and the Persian Gulf were dry land; the Mediterranean was a lake,…

When Three Is a Charm

Rushton Lodge—better known as the Triangular Lodge—is considered by many to be only a folly—a building without a real purpose, other than decoration. But the history of the structure is more than interesting, inviting the question whether it might not actually contain a veritable secret message, so far not uncovered. Such questions arise from the strange Elizabethan saga of Sir Thomas Tresham. What happens when you release a Catholic from jail? The answer in the case of Tresham is: the Triangular Lodge. The small building…

Nemesis or Tyche?

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi, Sufi Poet, 1207-1273 CE A storm of controversy swirls around this subject. The recent excitement began with a science news story that went viral on the Internet, announcing that scientists J. J. Matese and Daniel Whitmire had found a “Jovian mass companion” to our Sun in the outer Solar System. If proved, the scenario is breathtaking and would be the biggest news in astronomy since Copernicus informed us that…

Lost Subterranean Wonders

Long lost pathways into subterranean domains have always been a source of fascination for students of ancient mysteries. This month’s selections should provide plenty of food for thought. LOST CAVES OF GIZA Andrew Collins Produced and Narrated by Greg Little Ever since the age of the pharaohs, stories have circulated concerning the existence beneath the sands of Egypt of a subterranean realm— seen as the tomb of Osiris and as the underworld through which the souls of the deceased must traverse in order to reach…
