HOLLOW EARTH THEORY

Almost everyone, with the emphasis on almost, no longer believes in a flat Earth, therefore why is it that some still believe today in a hollow Earth?

FLAT EARTH (IMAGE, COMMONS.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

It almost seems impossible, or extremely unlikely, that with modern day scientific advances, a rational person would suggest he or she traveled into openings at the poles that allowed them to see amazing things.  Some believe that the famous United States Admiral Richard E. Byrd was one of those supposedly rational persons that claimed to have visited such an area.

Supposedly, different factions of United States media reported on Admiral Byrd’s forays into the unknown openings into Earth, but those reports were quickly squelched.

Another person with an intense interest in openings to the inside of Earth is the evil Adolph Hitler.   Legend or rumor has it that Hitler, and some of his high ranking associates, escaped to an opening at the South Pole, rather than having committed suicide as has been widely reported.

No matter what one believes, the idea of a hollow Earth is very interesting and intriguing, and it is the subject of many science fiction publications and productions.  Apparently, there will always be some who believe in the possibility of what seems impossible to most of us.

NOME, ALASKA ALIEN ABDUCTIONS

Nome, Alaska is located remarkably close to the mainland of Russia, but there is something else about Nome that might be remarkable, and that is the possibility that it is a hotbed for alien abductions of humans.

The 2009 film, “The Fourth Kind” was about those abductions.  Many have criticized the movie for its exaggerations and inaccuracies, but there also many that truly believe much of the information in the film is indeed factual.

ALIEN ABDUCTION (IMAGE, IT.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

It seems that one of the strange features of the humans that were supposedly abducted is the belief that many of them saw visions of owls in their dreams, and another feature is that many of them repeatedly noticed the number 333.  The FBI apparently conducted an investigation into the many missing persons of Nome, Alaska, but the organization declined comment about what they found, however, it is believed that the alien abduction theories were debunked.

Nome’s remoteness and the adventuresome lifestyles of many of its residents could also account for many of the missing persons.  Perhaps some people just don’t want to be found, but there are many in and around the Nome area that claim they know of people that were abducted, or they themselves were victims of abductions.

EZEKIEL’S WHEELS

PROPHET EZEKIEL (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Could it be possible that in some of the writings of the prophet Ezekiel there is reference to a spaceship of sorts and that is what might be called Ezekiel’s Wheels?

Many of us have heard of Erich von Daniken’s “Chariots of the Gods” in which he puts forth the hypothesis that the technologies and religions of many ancient civilizations were given to them by ancient astronauts who were welcomed as gods.  Josef F. Blumrich put that hypothesis to a test to determine if von Daniken could possibly have been correct.  Blumrich approached the subject as a scientist and a complete skeptic of the possibility that the descriptions given in the first chapter of Ezekiel might allude to a helicopter of sorts or a spaceship with wheels, which could be referred to as Ezekiel’s Wheels.  As might be expected Blumrich had a change of attitude about Ezekiel’s writings, and he provided some interesting interpretations of some of the verses in Ezekiel, Chapter 1.

Many individuals might be skeptical of such interpretations since many writings by religious prophets  are interpreted in many different ways by different people.  In any event, the possibility is intriguing that Blumrich might have interpreted the writings correctly.

ICELANDIC ELVES

We have all heard of elves, but there exists a certain kind of elves, Icelandic Elves, that more than 54% of the population of Iceland really believe are real.

Many of us think of elves as creatures presented in folklore and handed down from generation to generation throughout the ages.  Santa Claus and his helper elves certainly come to mind with many of our Christmas traditions.  The cookies, milk, and other goodies that often are left out overnight on Christmas Eve for Santa, his elves, and reindeer is an example of how elves have entered our imaginations.

“ELF PLAY” BY AUGUST MALSTROM, 1866 (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

The Icelandic Elves are a different matter altogether.   They are believed to reside in rocks, and the politicians of Iceland seriously take into account the possible locations of elves, or elf territory that the elves might want protected, when roads are planned.

It is apparently believed that most of the elves of Iceland are benevolent, but it is also believed that if one does harm, in any way, to the elves or their territory and possessions bad things will likely happen to those that take that dangerous chance.

Many think that believing in elves is silly, but if you go to Iceland it is probably a good idea to take those little creatures seriously.

BABA VANGA, BULGARIAN NOSTRADAMUS?

Baba Vanga was a Bulgarian, who died in August of 1996 at the age of 85.  She was apparently a person with special powers including clairvoyant skills, and the ability to predict future events with remarkable accuracy.

BABA VANGA, (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Most of us have heard of Nostradamus and his predictions that, in many cases, turned out to be correct, but it seems as if Baba Vanga was even better at predictions than Nostradamus.

NOSTRADAMUS PORTRAIT, (IMAGE, COMMONS.WIKIMEDIA.ORG)

Some of her predictions that turned out to be correct include the date Stalin died, the Chernobyl disaster, that the United States would have and African American president, and many others.  What might be even more amazing are some of her predictions that still have not come to fruition including cancer will be cured, energy from outer space will include helium-3, that water will be scarce, and gold will be pretty much worthless.  So many of her other predictions seem truly unbelievable or even outlandish, but there are those that believe wholeheartedly in those predictions.

In any event, whether one believes in the special abilities of the young girl, and later woman, from Bulgaria or not, the remarkable accuracy of some of her predictions that have come true certainly cause one to take an interest in her life.

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT TALIESIN MYSTERY

TALIESIN (PHOTO, COMMONS.WIKIMEDIA.ORG)

Taliesin means “shining brow” to those of Welsh ancestry, and for Frank Lloyd Wright it was his way of describing his house built into the side of a cliff in Wisconsin.

Many people have heard about Frank Lloyd Wright and his architectural masterpieces throughout the world.  And why not, since he designed more than 1,000 structures, and over half of those were completed.   However, many people do not know of the tragedy that occurred at his beloved Taliesin, a house he orchestrated building as a refuge and retreat for his beloved friend, Mamah Borthwick Cheney, and himself and other family members near Spring Green, Wisconsin.  Mystery surrounds the fire and murders that occurred at the three-year-old house and home, and that mystery is still present and unanswered even today.

Some would say that the tragedy might even have inspired and motivated Frank Lloyd Wright to produce  better designs after the fire that occurred at Taliesin in 1914.  He was only 47 in 1914, but he lived to the age of 92, and most experts would agree that he produced some of his best work in the latter half of his life.

In any event, despite the mysterious tragedy of 1914, the house was rebuilt and today there are public tours of the property available for all to witness the architectural genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.

150,000 YEAR OLD CHINA PIPES

Is it possible that there are some items in China described as China Pipes that are man-made and 150,000 years old?

QINGHAI PROVINCE, CHINA, LOCATION OF THE 150,000 YEAR OLD PIPES (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Out of place artifacts have been a mystery to scientists for many years, and probably the most famous of such artifacts is the Antikythera Mechanism, which was found in a shipwreck.  It apparently represents knowledge that was about 1000 years off from our previous understanding.  Perhaps the so called China Pipes are also out of place artifacts, which certainly add to the mystery of how such items could have been made by man so many years ago.

ANTIKYTHERA MECHANISM (PHOTO, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG

 

It might be possible that a civilization with very advance technologies existed 150,000 years ago, and as a result of the fall of that civilization, it totally disappeared.  It is also possible the pipes might be geological formations that only appear man-made.

DEVILS POSTPILE NATIONAL MONUMENT (PHOTO, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

The pipes were dated using the technique called thermoluminescence, which helps to determine how long minerals have been exposed to sunlight or heat.

Nomads might have occupied the area where the pipes are located in China, but it  seems unlikely the nomads would have been the creators of the pipes that are left behind.

In any event, the pipes in China offer an opportunity for interesting discussion about their origin.

LEONARDO DA VINCI, THE TRUTH

When one hears the name Leonardo da Vinci the thought that immediately comes to mind, for most people, is that of a very gifted artist.

MONA LISA (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

What is probably not well known among most people is that Leonardo da Vinci was accomplished at so many more skills.  He was a sculptor, architect, engineer, inventor, geologist, botanist, and in addition to many more skills he was, of course, a painter.

Some people seem to think that Leonardo reminds one of Nikola Tesla in that both individuals seemed to be far advanced in their thinking.   In other words, they were both well ahead of their time when it comes to their ideas and inventions.

An interesting aspect of Leonardo’s paintings is that he seemed to be hiding some secret message in many of his masterpieces.  He used the technique of mirror writing in some of his works, and it was this special process that perhaps enabled him to hide his secret messages.

ANNUNCIATION BY LEONARDO DA VINCI (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Leonardo was also interested in performing autopsies on human bodies even though that medical technique was forbidden in his time.   He undoubtedly was able to learn much about the workings of the human body through his autopsies, and he was  probably a forerunner of current medical technique that is used today.

In any event, when one thinks of Leonardo it is important to think of him as much, much more than a painter.

HY-BRASIL, A MYTHICAL ISLAND?

Hy-Brasil is either a mythical island about 200 miles off of the southwest coast of Ireland, or it might have truly existed, and is now submerged under the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

HY-BRASIL, TINY MYTHICAL ISLAND OFF OF THE COAST OF IRELAND (IMAGE, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Much has been written about Atlantis and Lemuria, and the mythical nature of the two mysterious islands, and Hy-Brasil is similar in some aspects to both of those islands, but also very different.  Undoubtedly, the biggest difference is size, with the island supposedly located off the coast of Ireland as being much smaller than the reportedly huge Atlantis and Lemuria.

PORCUPINE BANK AND PORCUPINE SEABIGHT LOCATED OFF THE WEST COAST OF IRELAND (IMAGE, COMMONS.WIKIMEDIA.ORG)

There is even a believed connection to the Redlesham Forest Incident of 1980 in England.  Supposedly, in that English event one of the witnesses was given binary code information telepathically through his touching of markings on a crashed, triangular-shaped craft.  Of significance is that the code information included coordinates to significant locations on Earth, and the coordinates for Hy-Brasil were among those provided to the witness.

We will probably never truly know for certain if the little disappearing island ever existed, or if it was, and is, simply a tale or allegory of sorts that has been passed down from generation to generation, but the possibility that it does exist, along with the reported riches that it holds, is certainly intriguing.

RHODE ISLAND’S NEWPORT TOWER

The Newport Tower is located in a tourist area on the eastern shore of the United States in Newport, Rhode Island.

NEWPORT TOWER, RHODE ISLAND, (PHOTO, EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

Many people walk by the tower without even thinking about how it got where it is, and at the same time, there are many individuals that have been speculating about the origins of the tower.  The Newport Tower is not very big since it is only 24 feet across, and it is 28 feet in height.  What is somewhat unique about the tower is that it is supported by columns at the bottom half and the top half is completely solid and obviously very heavy since it is made out of stone.

It is generally accepted that the tower  was once an old windmill, but that is just about all that is agreed upon by many.   The differences of opinion center on the builders of the tower.  Perhaps it was the Vikings, Chinese, Portuguese, Knights Templar, or even Colonial governor Benedict Arnold, who was the great-grandfather of the Revolutionary War traitor or hero depending upon one’s point of view.

BENEDICT ARNOLD, (IMAGE, COMMONS.WIKIMEDIA.ORG)

One can imagine individuals sitting on a park bench nearby the tower, and many of them having a spirited conversation about the tower’s origin.

In any event, since Newport, New Hampshire is a tourist destination, it might be enjoyable for tourists to look a little closer at the tower and try to imagine how it got where it is.
