Göbekli Tepe: The Cosmic Connection

On a hilly ridge called Göbekli Tepe in the Taurus Mountains of southeast Turkey, near the ancient city of Sanliurfa, archaeologists have uncovered the oldest stone temple complex in the world. Constructed most probably during the second half of the tenth millennium BC, some seven thousand years before Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid, the site consists of a series of rings of enormous T-shaped pillars, many bearing carved reliefs of ice age animals, strange glyphs, and geometric forms. But what exactly were these stone enclosures…

The Coming New Species

Looking at the variety of animals and plants in the world, it is obvious that they all are related in varying degrees to one another. Lions are members of the felidae family, for example, and all cats are in the order carnivora; and they are mammals, and vertebrates, and all are animals. Both plants and animals have cells whose internal structure is almost identical, save that plant cells have cell walls, and some have chloroplasts. The fossil record cialis turnt clearly shows that new species…

Ancient Code of the Temple Builders

This is the tale of two, medieval, religious buildings and the curious historical and architectural anomalies they have in common. One is a small Scottish chapel, and the other an immense French cathedral. Let’s begin in Scotland. Ten years after the publication of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, there still seems no bottom to the list of priceless relics speculated to be hidden in Rosslyn Chapel. To the endless amusement of skeptics, this world-class collection includes the Holy Grail, the Lost Treasure of the…

A Hundred Issues Down and Counting

This publication has reached a new plateau. It now takes three digits to tell how many issues we have produced. With issue #100 Atlantis Rising has achieved a longevity that few publications in our niche can equal, which says a lot about our persistence, if not our worth. I must say, that when we launched in November of 1994 it was a challenge to think about getting out even one more issue. As for a hundred? That was beyond imagining. Thanks to two generous friends,…

Where Censorship Speaks Louder Than Words The prestigious not-for-profit TED Talks organization claims a commitment to informing its patrons about the latest developments in Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED). Despite charging audiences thousands of dollars to watch speeches, at conferences and streaming live on the web, for which it pays nothing, TED has developed a considerable international following, reaching over a billion viewers so far. Now it can add one more trophy to its collection, censorship. Amid accusations of provocation and pushing “pseudoscience,” speeches given…

Working Mind-Control Experiment Reported If you think worrying about mind control is strictly for the folks in tin foil hats, think again—if you still can, that is. To the world of visionary—if not paranoid—science fiction, of course, the idea is nothing new. From George Orwell’s 1984 to the Richard Condon’s Manchurian Candidate, the nightmare of a totalitarian state determined to manipulate the innermost thoughts of its citizenry has been a familiar, albeit very chilling, theme. Now, though, it appears that an important fortification between nightmare…

Is “Spooky Action Coming to the ISS? Despite contradicting the “laws” of classical physics, the information in sub-atomic particles will keep in perfect sync with each other, no matter how far apart. The particles must be “entangled,” and then what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” occurs. This is all described in quantum physics theory and it has been demonstrated over relatively short distances. Now a new experiment has been proposed which would deploy the International Space Station to prove whether entanglement works over…

Australian ‘Joe Cell’ Continues to Defy Conventional Thinking Anyone doubting the existence of so-called zero-point energy would be well advised to watch the 25-minute YouTube video, The Story of the Joe Cell. Since its introduction in the early 1990s the “Joe Cell,” has been thought to be a kind of orgone accumulator similar to that developed by Wilhelm Reich the controversial and persecuted Austrian psychoanalyst and inventor. In the professionally-made documentary, the inventor of the “Joe Cell,” a very ordinary-seeming Australian named Joe (no last…

Beyond LENR (aka ‘Cold Fusion’) to Useful Energy

We’re in a time of big changes. The CEO of a new energy company developing a revolutionary product says, “If we had started this ten years ago, we’d be dead by now.” Even a change for the better is not always easy. We resist letting go of an outmoded belief or worldview despite the fact that it’s not solving our problems. It’s all the more difficult to ditch a worldview if you’ve defended it for many years and expect reward for your elite knowledge. Are…

Debating the Berekhat Ram Figurine Implications

When did figurative sculpture begin? According to many mainstream archeologists, figurative sculpture began about twenty-five or thirty thousand years ago, when humans of the Homo sapiens type suddenly started producing objects such as the Willendorf Venus, discovered in 1908 in Austria. But some archaeologists trace the origin of sculpture much further back in time, to simpler antecedents. An example of this is the Berekhat Ram figurine. Berekhat Ram is a site in the Golan Heights region of Israel. During excavations that took place in 1980…

Mexico’s Myterious Mica

CAPTION: Mica floor at Teotihuacan The mineral mica is at the center of an archaeological mystery: why did the ancient builders of the Teotihuacan Pyramid complex in Mexico use slabs of it on the gigantic Pyramid of the Sun, as flooring near the Avenue of the Dead, and as lining for the walls of underground tunnels there? Is it possible that the ancient engineers utilized the properties of this material in ways that we have not discovered? I will propose here that our predecessor civilizations…

Divine Proportions

In 2011, the American Museum of Natural History awarded a young seventh grader named Aiden Dwyer its Young Naturalist Award for proposing an arrangement of solar panels based on the Fibonacci series. Aiden noticed the natural pattern that tree leaves were arranged around a stem, which correlated to the Fibonacci series, would be more efficient than traditional arrays of solar panels. Similarly, in the field of biomimicry, a company called PAX Scientific out of San Rafael, California, has been developing air and fluid movement technologies…

The Sailors of Atlantis

Conventional archaeologists unanimously insist that the same Egyptians who raised the Great Pyramid were incapable of building a ship that could cross the sea. Although mainstream scholars still emphatically uphold this general consensus, it was effectively demolished almost sixty years ago. In 1954, a magnificent vessel more than 140 feet long and nearly 20 feet wide was discovered near the base of a pyramid assigned by Egyptologists to Pharaoh Khufu (also known as “Cheops”), who ruled the Old Kingdom’s Fourth Dynasty for at least twenty-six…

The Man Who Proved He Wasn’t Dead

He was a lawyer, journalist, author, and poet during his short, 32-year tenure on Earth, but his most significant achievement came soon after his death on February 18, 1892, when he began providing some distinguished researchers with strong evidence that there is life after death. In fact, it might very well be the most scientific evidence of the survival of human consciousness ever obtained. His name was George Pellew, although to protect the privacy of his surviving family, Dr. Richard Hodgson, the executive secretary and…

Portal to Worlds Unknown?

Around the world there are strange and mysterious places where time and reality are not as normally experienced. Do our minds simply play tricks on us? Or are there certain sites we may with good reason consider as sacred, as power spots, as vortexes, as points on ley lines, as intersections on the planetary grid where telluric and earth energies erupt to the surface and those who are sensitive to such energies can find themselves transformed? Such places have been acknowledged and sought by mystics…

Precession of the Equinoxes and the Golden Fleece

Imaginary or not, Jason and the Argonauts yet find their story writ large in the night sky. The constellation Argo, rising just above the horizon, commemorates the swift 50-oared longboat that carried Jason and his crew of 50 heroes around the ancient world in search of the golden fleece. Lyra, or the lyre, higher in the sky than Argo, honors the Argonaut/demigod Orpheus who, perched on the stern of the boat, played his enchanted lyre and charmed the rowing warriors into redoubling their efforts and…

Blood Brothers

For centuries Columbus was accepted as the first European to reach the Americas. Norse sagas that told a completely different story were dismissed as fairy tales. That is until in the 1960s the husband and wife team of Helge Ingstad and Anne Stine unearthed a desolate place on the north shore of Newfoundland called L’Anse aux Meadows. Somewhere between 989 and 1020 Norse seafarers established a village where they were able to repair and construct their open sailing vessels. Following that discovery, opinions are changing….

Jupiter in Cancer: June 2013–July 2014
