Ancient Recordings?

The Akashic Field is a metaphysical library that exists outside of time and space. It is thought to be a universal record of everything that has ever happened, a kind of database that a clairvoyant or a mystic could access for healing, vision, or understanding. The idea of an Akashic Field is popular in spiritual and New Age thought as an explanation for intuitive information and spiritual insight. This concept has long been ridiculed by materialistic science, since there is no conceivable way that such…

Moses, Son of Egypt?

It is not well known that during the last years of his life, the face of the iconic prophet Moses was covered by a mask. At his first encounter with his Maker: “Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God” (Exodus 3:6). It was a natural reaction. The people of Israel lived in terror of direct contact with God, believing that the mere sight of Him would bring immediate death. They’d been warned that, “Man shall not see Me and live” …

A Solar-Induced Dark Age?

Bulgaria has a rich archaeology going back to deep antiquity which, in my assessment, is very much under-appreciated by the world at large. Here, in the Balkan crossroads, lie clues to the early history of civilization and the development of modern culture. I became deeply fascinated by the riches that Bulgaria has to offer on my first trip to the country in July 2014 (see Atlantis Rising #108, Nov–Dec, 2014). Consequently, I was thrilled when this past November (2014), I had the opportunity to return…

The Adventures of Digital Reading

In our last issue (#109), I used this space to make the point that unlike many publications appearing on the Internet, Atlantis Rising is also a paper-and-ink magazine available since 1994. You can find it on magazine stands, in most major chain bookstores, and in many independent stores. I should not drop the subject, though, without adding that we have a significant presence in digital form as well. On most mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, or Google Android) Atlantis Rising is available through one…

The Science Fiction Link

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.”)   Once Upon a Time This is just for fun. I am totally charmed with the Martin Ruggles “Once Upon a Time in Inner Space” (AR #109), addressing input from extraterrestrial visitors from a literary perspective. Pursuing that, there is a pleasant coincidence. Many…

Methane on Mars After All There is methane on Mars, after all. Here on Earth methane is usually, but not always, a sign of biological processes—in other words, life. Other things, primarily geological processes, can also produce the gas, so NASA scientists are not yet ready to declare they have found evidence for life on Mars. They are getting interested though. The recent discovery by the Mars Curiosity Rover came as a surprise. Just months prior, NASA had announced that actually Curiosity had found no…

Red Sea Parting Reconsidered The new Hollywood blockbuster, Exodus: Gods and Kings, starring Christian Bale as Moses, has rekindled interest in the ancient biblical account of the escape of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. In particular, the story of crossing the Red Sea before the pursuing army of the pharaoh has drawn surprising new attention from scientists, with some now arguing that the story could be based on fact, not mere myth. In his 1956 classic, The Ten Commandments, director Cecil B. DeMille showed…

Even More News

Greatest Baalbek Megalith Found In November, British researcher Graham Hancock, the best-selling author of Fingerprints of the Gods and many other important works on lost ancient civilizations, reported on his website (GrahamHancock.com) that another massive megalith has been discovered in Lebanon’s Baalbek quarry. Weighing an astonishing 1650 tons, the single stone block is 19.6 meters (over 65 feet) long, 6 meters wide and at least 5.5 meters high, making it significantly larger than either of two previously discovered blocks in the quarry. On the origin…

Mind Over DNA The popular explanation for the source of the human mind is DNA. The general view seems to be that most biological characteristics are a function of our DNA molecules and that all answers to questions of mind and body will ultimately be found coded in our DNA. DNA, some would argue, is our identity. But what if our DNA can be modified by our minds? Wouldn’t that indicate that DNA might be more effect than cause? That is, however, exactly what new…

Ezekiel’s Wheel and Other Cutting-Edge Developments

George Wiseman of Eagle Research (eagle-research.com) seems pretty excited about this. Did God show Ezekiel how to build a free-energy machine? Could this technology, built by a retired boilermaker and now rusting away in a farmer’s field, be a world-changing power source? It supposedly output 35 HP and the testing engineers damaged it by using wedges to stop it. We don’t know why it was never repaired… I’ve reviewed this machine, and although I don’t know if it will work without building one, I can…

The Buenos Aires Skull

In 1896, workers were excavating the rudder pit of a dry dock in the port of Buenos Aires. They broke through a hard layer of limestone rock (called tosca). Beneath the tosca was a layer of quartz sand, and below that was a layer of gray clay, in which a human skull was found. This was about 11 meters (36 feet) below the bed of the river La Plata. The workmen gave the skull to their supervisor, Mr. Junor, who brought it to the attention…

In the Beginning Was the Word

What is the origin of human speech? Did it evolve gradually from the much simpler languages of animals, or did our Creator give it to us all at once? Was there originally just one language that gradually split into many as people wandered off to form new tribes and nations in new regions? The Bible claims that there was only one language for all of humanity (and one origin for our species) until the time of the Tower of Babel. Similar myths are found in…

Life from the Sun?

When NASA revealed in 2012 that it had identified something called X-Points, as portals linking in an uninterrupted path the magnetic field of our planet to that of the sun, there was little coverage in the mainstream media. A year later, when Russian physicist Vladimir Dzhunushaliev and his colleagues postulated that there were wormholes connecting our sun to other stars in the galaxy, it likewise gained scant attention. During the same period, though, newspaper reports of UFOs approaching the sun, followed by a flurry of…

Physics with a Twist

The first research generally credited with the discovery of what some have called nature’s “fifth force”—torsion—was that done in the late 1800s by Russian professor N.P. Myshkin. (D.G. Yurth, Torsion Field Mechanics) Albert Einstein’s colleague Dr. Eli Cartan first coined the term “torsion” in 1913, in reference to this force’s twisting movement through the fabric of space­time—but his important work was virtually buried by the rampant success and notoriety of Einstein’s theories. In the 1950s—the same decade that Watson and Crick discovered the helical structure…

33: The Magic Number

Since the most ancient of times numbers and numerology have been believed to conceal secrets and messages. For some, numbers have very special significance, with the ability to conceal true meaning from all but the initiated. To some, certain numbers can convey that something of particular importance lies within the text under their study. Such numbers needn’t even be written to convey the presence of a hidden code within a sentence or paragraph, only that the sum of letters included adds up to a particular…

Exploring Indonesia’s Bada Valley

There are actually three main valleys in Indonesia that contain strange megaliths, the Bada, Napu, and Besoa. The latter two were even more remote than the former, but all are part of the Lore Lindu National Park. The valleys contain dozens of finely carved megaliths in the forms of statues and jars, and current residents are as mystified over who made them, as are archaeologists. Locals think the megaliths and Indonesian archaeologists are at least 6,000 years old, although most estimates range from 5,000 to…

The Interdimensional Thread

After the Vietnam War, America experienced a wave of pointless, random acts of violence, “stranger murders,” which had all the experts stumped; it was the lack of motive that threw them for a loop. Evidently some unknown factor was at play. It was not only the detectives who could not find a motive; it was the killers themselves. Hence came the element of ‘compulsion’ to the drawing board—as well as the long-tabooed question of demonology. These “maybes” have been on the table for more than…

Copper Mining in Ancient America

Among the greatest mysteries of the past is also one of the least known. Although archaeologists have been familiar with prehistoric copper mining at the Great Lakes since the mid-nineteenth century, they have always been reluctant to publicly discuss this enigma, because it suggests overseas’ impact on ancient America, thereby contradicting their unswerving belief in Christopher Columbus as the sole discoverer of our continent. They are unable to account for 223,215 or more tons of copper excavated from five thousand pit-mines, mostly at Michigan’s Upper…

The Power of Myth

“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.”  —Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces   In our time myth is considered to be like a fairy tale or a fictional flight of fancy, but in ages past myth was a means for describing profound truths in ways that could be recognized and remembered. Myths are carefully crafted stories intended to transmit timeless truths through…
