  • Ma’mun’s Passage
    The classical story of the discovery of the upper chambers inside the Khufu pyramid at Giza is well known. In the ninth century an Arab governor of Cairo, known as the Caliph al Ma’mun, decided to see for himself what lay inside the Great Pyramid (Khufu pyramid) and began to excavate a tunnel straight through […]
  • Relics from the Ice Age?
    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 […]
  • Can Mind Heal Matter?
    Transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—a philosophical visionary more complete than any other this nation has produced—identified two components to attaining personal power. One is to “drill.” By this he meant training, rehearsal, education—the repeated application of a skill, over and over, the way a martial artist never stops working his routines.

  • Atlantis Stars Rising
    The Sci-Fi Channel’s new hit television spin-off based on the extremely popular Stargate SG-1 series has hit the ground running. If you haven’t seen it, the story takes a team of Earth’s ‘best & brightest’ through the ‘stargate’ (a device created by an ancient race for instantaneous interstellar travel) to a far-off galaxy where they […]
  • The Teotihuacan Revelations
    I raced up the stone steps, higher and higher. Perhaps I should have slowed down and imbued my mind with reverence, but I couldn’t help it. I had waited all my life to climb the Pyramid of the Sun. I finally arrived at the summit, over 200 feet high, and marveled at the view of […]
  • Templars in Tennesee?
    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. They […]
  • Could Big Science Be on Trial?
    If you thought that important archaeological discoveries were being kept hidden from the public, and that laws intended to preserve the public’s right to know were being routinely violated, you could expect to be sneered at by the science-and-media establishment, but you would, nevertheless, be right. That is the view of highly respected Professor Keith […]

  • High Stakes on the Bleeding Edge
    Near the leading edge of well-known energy technology, the landscape is increasingly dotted with inventions—from solar-electric breakthroughs to new hydrogen-generating alternatives. I’m pleased that Doug Kenyon asked me to write this column regularly, to bring you some of the exciting news from that landscape. And beyond. The “beyond” is even more interesting. Out on the […]
  • Moving in the Right Circles at Glastonbury
    On Friday morning, July 23, 2004, I arrived at Gatwick airport, south of metropolitan London, on my way to speak on my new book Human Devolution at the Glastonbury Symposium, which is mainly about crop circles. The very term crop circles gives new meaning to the expression “it’s not my field,” because it really is […]
  • Ant People of Orion?
    All across the American Southwest we find petroglyphs (rock carvings) or pictographs (rock paintings) depicting eerie creatures with spindly bodies, large eyes and bulbous heads, sometimes with antennae. The figures are frequently shown in a “prayer stance” with elbows and knees positioned at right angles, similar to the ant’s bent legs. Do these rock drawings […]

    “On this island of Atlantis had arisen a powerful and remarkable dynasty of kings, who ruled Europe as far as western Italy.” —Plato, The Timaeus At the center of Atlantis, according to Plato, sprawled the monumental Temple of Poseidon.

  • Da Vinci, Newton & Hugo
    The authors of the best-selling 1982 non-fiction book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which popularized the notion of the “Priory of Sion”—the 1,000-year-old secret society said to guard the Holy Grail—must be sorry now that novelist Dan Brown seized upon the idea and made it the centerpiece of his hugely popular 2003 novel The Da Vinci […]
  • Spain’s Ancient Pathway
    The Camino de Santiago is an ancient pilgrimage route that traverses Spain from its beginning in the Pyrenees to the tomb of St. James the Apostle, located at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain’s northwestern province of Galicia. The Camino saw as many as 2,000,000 pilgrims annually in the Middle Ages, and is […]

The Scales are those of Justice, weighing […]
  • The Politics of Intelligent Design
    As the recent federal court trial in Dover, Pennsylvania, over whether “Intelligent Design” (ID) may be taught in schools, has commanded the attention of the world, it has been fascinating to watch the classic strategies and tactics for achieving political advantage acted out. Once again we have been reminded that, indeed, there is nothing new […]

  • The Riddle of Tulum
    Ancient Mexico’s most physically alluring location stands atop a forty five-foot cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the coast of Yucatan, about 85 miles south of Cancun. Although the site continues to attract tourists from around the world, few are aware of its singular mysteries, past and present. Set in the west between a dark […]
  • San Francisco’s Pyramid Saga
    Has San Francisco been keeping a secret for over a century—a secret like those mentioned by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval in their groundbreaking book Talisman? A careful look at the curious alignment of several of the city’s streets yields some surprising revelations and what appears to be an unexpected connection to the Great Seal […]
  • Underwater Bases and Alien Civilization
    Ivan T. Sanderson was born in 1911. Before he died in 1973 he wrote over 18 books on the UFO phenomenon. A trained biologist, Sanderson, was, nevertheless, fascinated by the unexplained and wrote on many exotic topics, such as mystery animals (including Bigfoot and the Yeti), lost civilizations, UFOs and “Ooparts,” or “Out-of-Place-Artifacts.” In Invisible […]
  • Finding the Keys to the Mysteries
    Despite all attempts by the intellectual elite to treat certain issues as settled, controversy persists. This issue’s DVD of­ferings focus on three areas where conventional thought is getting a workout these days. UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF LIFE: The Scientific Case for Intelligent Design Illustra Media In 1993, a landmark meeting of design theorists was assembled […]
  • Voice Power
    Gguung…ggaang…gginngg: these gargly syllables accompany various groaning, laughing, nonsensical and utterly sil­ly sounds coming from slack-jawed participants in James D’Angelo’s workshop: Awakening Chakra Energies Through Sound. They’re here to “free up” their voices and discover the power of the voice to heal. The circle is composed of professional musicians, singers, orators and ordinary people who […]
  • Weather Wars
    This historic tropical storm season (storm specialists ran out of named storms, substituted Greek letters) appears to have finally jarred the mass consciousness into realizing there’s something fundamentally off with the weather. For “off” substitute “unnatural.” Consequently, concepts and people normally kept on the sidelines and out of the public eye are receiving unprecedented coverage […]
  • Ancient Metals
    Our current civilization would not exist if four principle inventions had not occurred: agriculture, the wheel, writing and metallurgy. In each case a considerable amount of conceptual work was invested in the discovery process. This is the all-important precursor to the development of any technology and it is the process that is almost never brought […]
  • An Angry Planet?
    Could the people of planet Earth have recently become the guests who overstayed their welcome? Over-population, pollution of the air, land and sea, destruction of the protective ozone layer, and finally the threat to the oxygen bal­ance in the atmosphere, it seems, have long tried the patience of a living planet. If the beginning of […]
  • Circular Logic
    “Everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the power of the world always works in circles, and everything tries to be round.”—Wallace Black Elk (1863-1950) Symbols are a silent and potent language which reaches our conscious awareness through the agency of subconscious­ness. A symbol is a representation, a mark, a […]
  • The Lost Builders of Skara Brae
    Five thousand years ego, a thriving community existed on an island north of Scotland. Their homes are there today, looking as if their occupants had left them yesterday. They had central heating, toilets with drains and sewers, furni­ture including dressers, beds and couches, water tanks and were partly sunken so as to utilize the earth […]
  • Dostoevsky & Spiritualism
    In The Brothers Karamazov, the masterpiece of the towering 19th century Russian novelist and short-story writer Fyodor Dostoevsky, Ivan Karamazov tells the story of an atheist who didn’t believe in life after death and who, after he died, was sentenced by God to walk a billion miles in penance. Colin Wilson summarizes the story in […]
  • The Hard Struggle for Electrogravitics
    What would it take to get the secrecy club to open its file cabinet doors to the rest of us? In our dreams, right? De­spite the odds, however, I don’t think we should just give up on the dream. If the black-budget group ever opened cer­tain files to civilian use, it would save countless tons […]
  • The Legend of Markawasi
    “ . . . natural adapted features in a sanctified landscape.” These words (from John Michell, Confessions of a Radical Traditionalist, 2005, p. 127) resonated in my mind as I ex­plored the Markawasi Plateau. I had come to this small plateau (about 2 miles long by a little over half a mile wide) in the […]
  • Your Man in Beijing
    Last July, I went to Beijing to give a paper at the 22nd International Congress of History of Science. It was my first trip to China. At the Beijing airport, I ignored the advice in my Lonely Planet guidebook. Instead of walking to the regular taxi stand, I took up an offer from a man […]

    In 1973 an international team of anthropologists called the Combined Prehistoric Expedition (CPE) headed by Fred Wen­dorf and Romuald Schild were 100 km west of Abu Simbel, on a break in the blazing heat, when someone noticed pot­sherds and fine stone tools. They had discovered what came to be known as Nabta Playa. The CPE […]
  • The Astronomers of Nabta Playa
    According to most experts the dawn of Western civilization occurred in the fourth millennium B.C. with the sudden flowering of Sumer in southern Iraq and Pharaonic Egypt soon after. This is the mainstream view that was taught when I was a college student. Increasingly, however, it is under assault. Recent discoveries are challenging almost everything […]
  • Old Pumps for New
    In the wake of Hurricane Katrina last fall a horrified world watched as engineers struggled vainly to hold back the raging flood which threatened to overwhelm the weakened levees of New Orleans. But, heroic efforts notwithstand­ing, the swollen waters of Lake Pontchartrain soon engulfed the city. The giant pumps, designed to remove rainwater from the […]
  • Plant Wisdom
    With an IQ reportedly off the charts, Stephen Harrod Buhner might rightly claim to be one of the most intelligent people on the planet. Nevertheless, for this member of MENSA, Intertel and Colloquy—all formed for the mentally gifted—the most important thing is the balance of head and heart, knowledge and wisdom. After graduating from high […]
  • Upping the Ante
    With our last issue (#55), Atlantis Rising initiated a number of improvements to our overall presentation and, gathering from the feedback so far, they have been well received indeed. In addition to better paper (heavier, whiter and smoother) we also instituted a number of design changes made possible by better printing technology. Many have noted […]

  • The Templars’ Greatest Secret
    According to one esoteric tradition, after excavating the foundations of Solomon’s Temple for nine years the Templar Knights left the Middle East with five “caskets” or cases full of treasures they had collected in the HolyLand. These cases, the story goes, were eventually deposited in Kilwinning, the Mother Lodge of Scottish Freemasonry, before be­ing transported […]
  • Secret Tsunami Scenarios
    Given the recent first anniversary of the devastating Indian Ocean quake and tsunami, the disturbing insights gleaned in researching “Weather Wars” in the last issue, and a spate of provocative, articles on the Internet suggest­ing that the historic tsunami may not have been a natural event, but may, in fact, have been a kind of […]
  • The Search for Answers Heats Up
    This issue’s batch of controversial videos continues the non-stop search for alternatives that Atlantis Rising readers have come to expect from these pages. From the mysteries of the Bible to the founding of the United States to the healing power of the mind—these three DVDs offer a refreshing, and mind-expanding, alternative to the standard fare […]
  • Fancy Footwork in Mexico
    There is some fancy scientific footwork going on in the case of recently discovered footprints in Mexico. In 2003, some curious tracks were found in solidified volcanic ash deposits (the Xalnene tuff) in the dried-up bed of the ancient Valsequillo Lake near Puebla, Mexico. The ash fell in prehistoric times from the nearby Toluquilla vol­cano […]
  • Electromagnetism & The Ancients
    It’s been suggested, at various times, that ancient humans had knowledge and use of unseen powers, forces and ener­gy fields. Could these unseen forces and fields consist of electromagnetic frequency waves and particle fields that make up the EM Spectrum? This is not a simple question to answer. What evidence exists, and what kind of […]
  • Chinese Astrology
    “It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.”—Confucius Anyone who’s ever eaten in a Chinese restaurant has probably encountered a superficial introduction to the Chinese Zodiac by way of a place mat. Generally printed in dragon red the paper rectangle gives a brief outline of the twelve animals of the […]
  • The Battle Over Light
    In his Doctrine of Colors (1810), Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) writes: “In the second part [of this book] we occupy ourselves with the exposé of the Newtonian theory which has so far obstructed with force and prestige a free view of color phenomena we fight against a hypothesis that, although it is no longer […]
  • The Cycles of Danger
    We are conditioned to look at history as a linear progression from one stage of development to the next with irregular gaps in the timeline to be filled in as our database grows. The generally accepted picture from mainstream science is of a gradual evolutionary development of the geosphere and biosphere up to the present […]
  • The Great Pyramid
    Readers of Atlantis Rising are more familiar than most Americans with the mind-boggling details of ancient Egypt’s Great Pyramid. But of all the theories used to explain its construction, one postulated by an American construction engineer, Edward Kunkel, in the early 1950s, is still compelling. He was intrigued with a passage in the Histories (II, […]
  • Water-as-Fuel Inventors Get Their Own Museum
    The paths that lead to obsession with novel energy technologies vary, but their first steps are often similar. Most in­ventors I’ve met, for instance, recall that as a child they were fascinated by some aspect of science or the workings of nature. They tore radios apart, built gadgets and, if they were lucky enough to […]
  • A Matter of Gravity
    The noted American astronomer Halton Arp jumped through all the hoops of big bang theory and discovered one of its major flaws, that objects from the same source have drastically different red shifts, and thus the big bang was a big bust. Instead of having the big bang community confirm and celebrate his discovery, it […]

    The authors of the best-selling 1982 non-fiction book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which popularized the notion of the “Priory of Sion”—the 1,000-year-old secret society said to guard the Holy Grail—must be sorry now that novelist Dan Brown seized upon the idea and made it the centerpiece of his hugely popular 2003 novel The Da Vinci […]
  • Spain’s Ancient Pathway
    The Camino de Santiago is an ancient pilgrimage route that traverses Spain from its beginning in the Pyrenees to the tomb of St. James the Apostle, located at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain’s northwestern province of Galicia.

  • Searching for the Builders of Nan Madol
    One of the world’s supreme ancient mysteries is also among its most obscure. In a remote corner of the western Pacific Ocean, nearly a thousand miles north of New Guinea and two thousand, three hundred miles south of Japan, stand the massive ruins of a long-dead city. Incongruously built on a coral reef only five […]
  • The Ancient Quest for Meaning in the Stars
    “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend.” —Kurt Vonnegut The body of knowledge we call astrology has accrued over millennia, correlating countless observations of “as above, so below.” This ancient discipline seems to operate in a Quantum Mechanics fashion, using the language of archetypes to describe the […]
  • Galactic Challenges
    To what extent is life on Earth influenced by events elsewhere in the solar system and, for that matter, the galaxy? Such questions provoke many different responses these days, profound and otherwise. The following assorted productions make the point. First, a new Richard Hoagland presentation takes on issues related to the Cydonia discoveries on Mars […]
  • Marconi, The Mysterious
    The relationship between Nikola Tesla and Guglielmo Marconi is a fascinating one! While Tesla has become a popular figure to revisionist scientists in the last ten years, Marconi is still largely unknown and seen as a usurper of Tesla’s inventions. Yet Marconi (1874-1937) was a brilliant scientist, and, in fact, Tesla’s close friend. Unlike Tesla, […]
  • Challenging the Reality Consensus
    The movie What the Bleep Do We Know!? has people talking about what constitutes reality and how our consciousness affects it. In this film, the strange realm of Quantum Physics serves as the launching point into an alternate perspective of the universe. The message of the film is simple: our consciousness does have a role […]
  • The New Frontiers of Mind Control
    On November 28th, 1953 at 2 a.m., a man crashed through a closed window and fell to his death from the tenth floor of the Statler Hotel in New York City.

  • Conversation with a Blue-Eyed Yogi
    Magic happens anywhere worlds meet,” writes Rampuri, author of Baba, Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Yogi (which Deepak Chopra says “explores the true intersections of Eastern and Western thought”). “This includes airports, crossroads, the seashore, graveyards, hospitals and temples, but the places where the Ordinary World meets the Extraordinary World require pilgrimage, either internal or external.” […]
  • The Force Fields of Earth
    The principal meridian spanning the globe is 30 N. latitude. The Great Pyramid and the mouth of the Nile sit on that meridian as does the mouth of the Mississippi River, the Tigris-Euphrates River and the sites of various ancient civilizations. A band of energy also spans the earth just north and south of the […]
  • Secrets of the Hohokam
    In 1649, a party of armored Spanish soldiers in the company of one Father Keno, a Franciscan priest, rode on horseback among puzzling, ancient ruins during their foray north into what today is south central Arizona. It was the first time white men had seen these enigmatic structures, but it would not be until the […]
  • Atlantis in the Bahamas
    The 1968 discovery of the Bimini Road created an ongoing, contentious issue between self-described “skeptics” and those who argue that the structure was manmade. The 1600-foot long formation lies in about 15 feet of water off North Bimini and has an “inverted J-shape.” It is comprised of rows of stone blocks, mostly square and rectangular, […]
  • The Indian Antigravity Report
    On the other side of the world an extraordinary heritage from a dimly remembered ancient past is apparently undergoing an astonishing new exploration which may already have produced a stunning discovery. The place? India, a teeming country with a culture millennia old. The heritage? Antigravity technology, embodied in huge, cryptic Sanskrit poems, fundamental to the […]
  • General Pike & the Klan
    When Dan Brown releases his book The Solomon Key later this year, one thing is certain: it will be a bestseller. With The Da Vinci Code selling close to 20 million copies, anticipation is growing regarding the next Robert Langdon thriller. What is less certain is what this next novel will be about. However, by […]

  • When the Political Frontier Is in the Stars
    For drama, this life story matches those in best-selling books and films: Through his own efforts, idealistic young lawyer rises to prominence in New York city, stirs up action in the Carter administration White House, runs smack into the wall of military secrecy, survives directed-energy attacks, and points our attention toward the stars—toward Universe Society.

  • Ma’mun’s Passage
    The classical story of the discovery of the upper chambers inside the Khufu pyramid at Giza is well known. In the ninth century an Arab governor of Cairo, known as the Caliph al Ma’mun, decided to see for himself what lay inside the Great Pyramid (Khufu pyramid) and began to excavate a tunnel straight through […]
  • Relics from the Ice Age?
    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 […]
  • Can Mind Heal Matter?
    Transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—a philosophical visionary more complete than any other this nation has produced—identified two components to attaining personal power.

The other is “concentration.” […]

  • The Teotihuacan Revelations
    I raced up the stone steps, higher and higher. Perhaps I should have slowed down and imbued my mind with reverence, but I couldn’t help it. I had waited all my life to climb the Pyramid of the Sun. I finally arrived at the summit, over 200 feet high, and marveled at the view of […]
  • Templars in Tennesee?
    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. They […]
  • Could Big Science Be on Trial?
    If you thought that important archaeological discoveries were being kept hidden from the public, and that laws intended to preserve the public’s right to know were being routinely violated, you could expect to be sneered at by the science-and-media establishment, but you would, nevertheless, be right.

  • Ant People of Orion?
    All across the American Southwest we find petroglyphs (rock carvings) or pictographs (rock paintings) depicting eerie creatures with spindly bodies, large eyes and bulbous heads, sometimes with antennae. The figures are frequently shown in a “prayer stance” with elbows and knees positioned at right angles, similar to the ant’s bent legs. Do these rock drawings […]

    “Words are of course the most powerful drug used by mankind.”—Rudyard Kipling Mercury lives at the Sun’s front door and as a result has the smallest orbit of the planets, only eighty-eight days, two to three times faster than Venus or Earth. But in contrast to Mercury’s speedy orbit the planet rotates very slowly on […]

    On March, I gave a talk about my work at the annual conference of the International Fortean Organization (INFO), held at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore (this extraordinary museum full of intriguing contempo­rary art is well worth a visit).

  • India’s Mystic Military
    The Chinese invaded Tibet, and the Dalai Lama fled. This much many people know.

Drink in hand, I approached her and introduced […]
  • Mixing Apples & Moons
    On November 15, 2005, PBS broadcast a Nova segment titled Newton’s Dark Secrets.

The program begins by pointing out Newton’s great invention, […]

    Are the children of today unlike any other generation of record?

But we were unaware that the […]

    As anyone knows, who has read Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, the plot revolves around the clandestine activities of an ancient secret society known as the Priory of Sion.

Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American […]
  • Ma’mun’s Passage
    The classical story of the discovery of the upper chambers inside the Khufu pyramid at Giza is well known. In the ninth century an Arab governor of Cairo, known as the Caliph al Ma’mun, decided to see for himself what lay inside the Great Pyramid (Khufu pyramid) and began to excavate a tunnel straight through […]
  • Relics from the Ice Age?
    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 […]
  • Can Mind Heal Matter?
    Transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—a philosophical visionary more complete than any other this nation has produced—identified two components to attaining personal power. One is to “drill.” By this he meant training, rehearsal, education—the repeated application of a skill, over and over, the way a martial artist never stops working his routines. The other is “concentration.” […]
  • Nabta Playa
    “People living more than seven thousand years ago may have possessed technical knowledge in astronomy and physics more advanced than our current understanding of the same subjects.” —Robert M. Schoch, Geologist, 2002   In 1972, a group of archaeologists were crossing the Egyptian desert, tracking by compass in an area known as Nabta Playa, when […]
  • The Search for Noah’s Ark
    Washington (AP) April 27, 2004: An expedition is being planned for this summer to the upper reaches of Turkey’s Mount Ararat where organizers hope to prove an object nestled amid the snow and ice is Noah’s Ark. “A joint U.S. and Turkish team of ten explorers plans to make the arduous trek up Turkey’s tallest […]
  • Where Was the Real Troy?
    “Schliemann’s tiny ruins of a city on the coast of Turkey cannot possibly fill the bill for the city described in Homer.” Achilles storms ashore with his small band of warriors. He looks, yes, remarkably like Brad Pitt. A vast fleet of virtual Greek vessels is coming up behind him. The sands of an immense […]
  • Jupiter in Libra: September 2004–October 2005
    “The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon, which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.” —Sun Tzu, The Art of War Libra, The Scales, is the only inanimate member of the zodiac and as such might be seen to represent pure principle. The Scales are those of Justice, weighing […]
  • Atlantis Stars Rising
    The Sci-Fi Channel’s new hit television spin-off based on the extremely popular Stargate SG-1 series has hit the ground running. If you haven’t seen it, the story takes a team of Earth’s ‘best & brightest’ through the ‘stargate’ (a device created by an ancient race for instantaneous interstellar travel) to a far-off galaxy where they […]
  • The Teotihuacan Revelations
    I raced up the stone steps, higher and higher. Perhaps I should have slowed down and imbued my mind with reverence, but I couldn’t help it. I had waited all my life to climb the Pyramid of the Sun. I finally arrived at the summit, over 200 feet high, and marveled at the view of […]
  • Templars in Tennesee?
    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. They […]
  • Could Big Science Be on Trial?
    If you thought that important archaeological discoveries were being kept hidden from the public, and that laws intended to preserve the public’s right to know were being routinely violated, you could expect to be sneered at by the science-and-media establishment, but you would, nevertheless, be right. That is the view of highly respected Professor Keith […]

  • High Stakes on the Bleeding Edge
    Near the leading edge of well-known energy technology, the landscape is increasingly dotted with inventions—from solar-electric breakthroughs to new hydrogen-generating alternatives. I’m pleased that Doug Kenyon asked me to write this column regularly, to bring you some of the exciting news from that landscape. And beyond. The “beyond” is even more interesting. Out on the […]
  • Moving in the Right Circles at Glastonbury
    On Friday morning, July 23, 2004, I arrived at Gatwick airport, south of metropolitan London, on my way to speak on my new book Human Devolution at the Glastonbury Symposium, which is mainly about crop circles. The very term crop circles gives new meaning to the expression “it’s not my field,” because it really is […]
  • Ant People of Orion?
    All across the American Southwest we find petroglyphs (rock carvings) or pictographs (rock paintings) depicting eerie creatures with spindly bodies, large eyes and bulbous heads, sometimes with antennae. The figures are frequently shown in a “prayer stance” with elbows and knees positioned at right angles, similar to the ant’s bent legs. Do these rock drawings […]
  • Children of Atlantis
    “On this island of Atlantis had arisen a powerful and remarkable dynasty of kings, who ruled Europe as far as western Italy.” —Plato, The Timaeus At the center of Atlantis, according to Plato, sprawled the monumental Temple of Poseidon. The ornate building of stone and precious metals contained a colossus of the sea-god standing in […]
  • Cellular Secrets
    Deepak Chopra loves to fly, which is a good thing, since he spends a lot of time on airplanes. He’s mused over the design of an aircraft that would be ‘uncrashable’ (“perhaps some kind of glider with an airfoil that never stalls, no matter what angle of dive the plane goes into”). He finds flying […]
  • Da Vinci, Newton & Hugo
    The authors of the best-selling 1982 non-fiction book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which popularized the notion of the “Priory of Sion”—the 1,000-year-old secret society said to guard the Holy Grail—must be sorry now that novelist Dan Brown seized upon the idea and made it the centerpiece of his hugely popular 2003 novel The Da Vinci […]
  • Spain’s Ancient Pathway
    The Camino de Santiago is an ancient pilgrimage route that traverses Spain from its beginning in the Pyrenees to the tomb of St. James the Apostle, located at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain’s northwestern province of Galicia. The Camino saw as many as 2,000,000 pilgrims annually in the Middle Ages, and is […]

  • Getting Left & Right Brains Together
    Negotiating the freeway towards San Francisco’s California-Pacific Medical Center, where he is chief of lap-aroscopic surgery, Dr. Leonard Shlain presses the eject button on his new car’s console (past models were Jaguars, but now that he’s a conscious consumer, it’s a Prius). Out comes “The Count of Monte Cristo,” a story that has had him […]
  • The Very Strange World of Mary Shelley
    At the end of August 2006, a helicopter was scheduled to hover above the red bluffs near Tucson, Arizona, and film scores of National Guardsmen dumping corpses from garbage trucks into a pit of fire. It would mark an initial production stage in A.I.A. Film Productions’s screen adaptation of The Last Man, a novel by […]
  • Fixing the Human-Origins Education Problem
    On May 24, 2006, I addressed the Faculty of Education, School of Education Studies of the University of Kwazu­lu-Natal, Edgewood Campus, South Africa. In attendance were professors of education and officers of the Provincial History Committee. Here are some excerpts from the address: In recent times, archaeologists have become interested in seeing what the science […]
  • The Numbers of LOST
    Not since Star Trek has a television show attracted such a devoted following as Lost. There are scores of websites based on the show itself and even websites centered on aspects of the show. There are books and magazines devoted to Lost and magazine articles on books that have appeared in Lost. The attraction of […]
  • Trees Versus the Forest
    Back in the fifties, as I vaguely recall, the U.S. Army sponsored a TV series called “The Big Picture.” The show has long since disappeared from the media and is doubtless collecting dust in some anonymous gov­ernment archive. And though today we may snicker at the hopeless naiveté which its producers displayed in attempting to […]

  • In the Shadow of Atlantis
    The pyramids of Khufu and Khafre together form the hieroglyph for “horizon,” appropriately enough, but only when viewed from the Great Sphinx one day each year, at sunrise of the summer solstice. During the winter solstice, an ob­server standing in the doorway of a nearby temple will see the sun perfectly skirt the whole length […]
  • In Search of Hidden Temples
    Where most see only scenery, others see temples. The evidence some have assembled to support their unique vision can make for some very intriguing video material and this time out it provides us with three DVDs to talk about. The first two are the work of Henry Lincoln, who, along with Michael Baigent and Richard […]
  • A New Book from A.R. Probes for Invisible Forces
    On the heels of the success of our first book Forbidden History, the new volume, due out in November, deals with the untold story of western spiritual traditions. The following preview is reprinted from the introduction.—Editor The history of the world, it has been alleged, is the history of a war between secret societies. And […]
  • Hitler’s Nuclear Threat
    NAZI NUKE DESIGN? Historians working in Germany have found a 1945 diagram which shows a German nuke. The picture held in a private archive is a rough schematic and doesn’t prove the bomb existed, but the document has been used to support the arguments of re­searcher, Dr. Rainer Karlsch. Karlsch provoked a major controversy by […]
  • Is It Time to Change Our Theoretical Models?
    Recently, when two Irishmen publicly challenged the establishment scientific community to test their “free-energy” magnetic system, the reaction to the news revealed differences in worldview within the New Energy community. The challenge came out in late August. Two Dublin businessmen bought a full-page ad in the Economist maga­zine, seeking a dozen, credible scientists to judge […]
  • The Jesus/Cleopatra Connection
    In my 1998 book, Jesus Last of the Pharaohs, I argued that Jesus was a prince, related in some manner to the Egyp­tian royal line. But the finer details of exactly to whom Jesus was related and how far back into Egyptian history one needed to go in order to find these family links were […]
  • Afterthoughts on the Afterlife
    The last act that William Dubs was able to perform before cancer claimed his life was to kiss his “soulmate” and wife, Tianna Conte-Dubs. As they kissed, he died and when his soul lifted from his body, Tianna was swept along with him, down a tunnel of light, as though she were dying, too. But […]

    “Once the game is over the King and the Pawn go back in the same box.”—Italian Proverb Sagittarius, the Archer, is depicted as a centaur. This mythical creature is half animal and half human, and in the case of the ninth zodiac sign, the centaur has a bow and arrow. How he is armed forms […]
  • Atlantis and the Neanderthals
    Charles Hapgood, an American professor of history, became convinced in 1989 that a civilization, ‘with high levels of science,’ had existed at least 100,000 years ago. In the mid-1950s, Hapgood had written a book called Earth’s Shifting Crust, to which Einstein contributed an In­troduction, arguing that the whole crust of the earth undergoes periodic ‘slippages,’ […]
  • Dragons of the Ishtar Gate
    The Pergamon in Berlin is ranked as one of the great museums of the world and it is equally true that the entrance to it must be the most impressive approach of any museum ever built. This is known as the Ishtar Gate. It was named for the Mesopotamian goddess of love and was one […]
