THE TEOTIHUACAN REVELATIONS
Astonishing New Evidence for Advanced Ancient Civilization in Mexico
BY JONATHON PERRIN
Distant mountains ringed the horizon, and before me sprawled the ruins of the largest ancient metropolis in the Americas. The Aztecs had found the city empty and abandoned, calling it Teotihuacan--“the place where men became gods,“ pronouncing it tay-oh-tee-WAH-kan. We simply don‘t know what the city was really called at the height of its splendor.
KNIGHTS TEMPLAR IN TENNESSEE?
Cracking the Mystery of the Melungeon People
BY STEVEN SORA
There exists in the state of Tennessee and in the neighboring states of Kentucky, North Carolina, and Virginia a people who were, and are in modern times, very different racially from the recognized settlers of the region. They were first noted in 1654 by English explorers who believed they were, indeed, a separate race.
Did the Allied Powers of WWII Get Help from Other Dimensions?
BY MARCIA DIEHL
Can greater-than-human conflict overflow onto the human plane? Nineteenth century founder of the Theosophical Society Madame Helena P. Blavatsky was so bold as to assert such a thing in the ‘scientific‘ age, whereas the ancients seem to have known it well. But could extraterrestrial warfare also engage on the nuclear level?
RELICS FROM THE ICE AGE?
Are Malta‘s Temples Thousands of Years Older than Conventional Archaeologists Acknowledge?
BY ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D.
The alluring and perplexing ancient megalithic temples of Malta and Gozo (the smaller island just north of Malta) have been a destination for travelers throughout the Mediterranean region and beyond for thousands of years. Even in their ruinous states, the temples are incredibly impressive; the largest limestone blocks weigh twenty to forty tons. There is evidence that the temples were not only venerated but also used and reused, built and rebuilt over the centuries and millennia.

To Prove the Earth Was Round... or Something Else?
BY WILLIAM B. STOECKER
In America today he is called Christopher Columbus; in Spanish-speaking countries his name is Cristobal Colon. He was, we are told, a morally flawed man who brutally mistreated the Indians. He was also one of the finest seaman and most able navigators of his time. There is strong evidence that he may have been intentionally hiding the real purpose of his famous voyages to the New World.
American vs. English Freemasons
BY STEPHEN V. O‘ROURKE
When discussing esoteric elements that influenced the American Revolution, alternative researchers often present Freemasonry as central to the time. Often overlooked though are the practical elements that made up Freemasonry in the colonies during the mid-eighteenth century. Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American colonies varied in influence as the two sides of the revolution struggled for supremacy.
Understanding the Standing Stones & Circles of a Lost Science
BY CHARLES SHAHAR
The many sacred structures built by ancient peoples had varied purposes. They functioned as places for ceremonial worship and tribal assemblies; tombs where great leaders or saints were buried; astronomical observatories and calendars that were aligned with various celestial objects; and sites that also featured underground springs or wells that were thought to have magical healing properties. These structures had multiple functions, some of them very practical--but let‘s focus here on the idea that these sacred structures were specifically designed for directing spiritual energy.
