  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

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 […]
  • The Project Serpo Saga
    “I really found my faith when I learned that the government was opposed to the film. If NASA took the time to write me a twenty-page letter, then I knew there must be something happening.”—Steven Spielberg In the movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, written and directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 1977, […]
  • The Truth By Any Other Name
    The term euphemism is usually defined as “a mild or indirect word substituted for one considered to be too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing.” Euphemistic talk has become so common that most of us hardly notice, a fact which has led some, when looking for the restroom, water closet, W.C., […]
  • Telephone Telepathy
    The Holy Grail of psi research has long been a simple, readily replicable experiment which yielded statistically signifi­cant results, preferably way beyond mere chance. Guess what? Iconoclast biologist, scientific free thinker and author Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, perhaps best known for his morphogenetic theory, which holds that matter is a kind of flesh applied over an […]
  • The Still Unexplained
    If the many unexplained anomalies which fascinate most of us, the three categories featured in this group of reviews usually gets top billing. We are talking about Atlantis, Crop Circles and UFOs. In the case of all three, despite the fact that the mainstream sci­entific establishment refuses to take them seriously, powerful evidence which cannot […]
  • Doris Lessing & Atlantis
    Is the following a description of the end of Atlantis? “Suddenly—only that is not the word for the instantaneous nature of this happening—I was in total darkness, with the stars swinging about around me. I was in starlight….Rohanda had turned over on itself, as a globe in a de­celerating spin may wobble over….The scene below […]
  • Dwarfing Pluto
    “There are no rules anywhere. The Goddess Prevails”—The Discordian Society, page 00032 The solar system hasn’t had such a jolt since 24-year-old Clyde Tombaugh, continuing the work of Percival Lowell, found Pluto on February 18, 1930. Lowell died in 1916 unaware that his photographic plates had captured Pluto. For a long time that was the […]
  • The Supernatural World of Graham Hancock
    Editor’s Caveat: In the following interview, author Graham Hancock makes a number of arguments about the re­ality of the invisible world and the strategies which have been employed by some to gain access to these realms. Re­garding the use of chemicals, drugs, or so-called natural psychoactive plant extracts, to achieve the desired spiritual awakening (what […]
  • The Grail in America
    A great deal of literature has seen light in recent years about the voyage of the “Holy Grail” from Europe to America. The idea of a Templar Fleet sailing the oceans and carrying their treasure trove across the Atlantic was extensively re­searched by Baigent and Lee for their 1989 “The Temple and the Lodge.” Many […]
  • ‘Current’ Wars & Our Lost ‘True Electric Age’
    When future historians look back on the recorded history of the human race, what will stand out as the most impor­tant event? According to Nikola Tesla, the most important event will be the day when we will know exactly what “electricity” is. Will we then know how to have ample electrical power from new energy […]
  • Lost City of the Far North
    The designation of “Lost City of the Americas” immediately conjures up images of Macchu Pichu, Tiahuanaco or Chan Chan. Yet one of the most mysterious ‘lost cities’ on the American continent is not in its Southern but in its Northern hemisphere. Even more baffling, it is in the region that is the most hostile to […]
  • Whatever Lucy’s Baby Was, It’s Not My Ancestor
    Recently there’s been a lot of publicity about the discovery of a fairly complete skeleton of an Australopithecus afa­rensis infant, and several of my correspondents have asked me about its significance. I will comment on that, but first some background. A preliminary description of the skeleton was published in Nature (September 21, 2006), and since […]
  • The Pavarotti of Chant
    About 75 people are sitting in a circle in a Boulder, CO yoga studio, already swaying together as “the Pavarotti of chant” Krishna Das picks up his harmonium (a small Indian pump organ). They are gathered for a ‘Satsang,’ (loosely translated as “community,” but meaning “in the company of truth” in Sanskrit). Das, or “KD” […]
  • Appreciating Ancient Advancement
    Among those who have argued in their writings that there once was a great and shining—albeit forgotten to histo­ry—fountainhead of civilization whose ghosts even now continue to haunt us, few have been more eloquent than John Michell. The author of over a score of works on ancient mysteries, sacred geometry, UFOs, unexplained phenomena and the […]
  • The High Technology of the Ancients
    Derek J. de Solla Price got the shock of his life when the true identity of an artifact he happened to be cleaning finally dawned on him. The curious object had lain in Athens’ National Museum for half a century after being hauled up from 120 feet below the surface of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, […]
  • Gnosis & the Secrets of Solomon’s Temple
    There is a journey that we all have to take—life. It is one of those things from which there is no escape and it is the root of most ancient myths, fables and tales. In this context we open new eyes to the mysteries of our past and see them with clearer vision. We are […]

    Transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—a philosophical visionary more complete than any other this nation has produced—identified two components to attaining personal power.

  • Nabta Playa’s Prehistoric Astronomers
    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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]

  • Rosslyn Chapel’s Darkest Secret
    In “Return to Rosslyn Chapel,” published in Atlantis Rising #48, I revealed my discovery of a Lorraine Cross encoded in Rosslyn’s five-course vaulted ceiling. Wayne Herschel, author of 2003’s The Hidden Records, has now added an­other layer to the mystery by claiming that a Vitruvian Man, a symbol made much of in Dan Brown’s The […]
  • Opening the Door to Sacred Geometry
    I had trouble with calculus in college. The concept of mathematics describing geometric shapes just did not resonate in my brain. Yes, I knew the formula for the circumference of a circle, and some Pythagorean stuff about triangles, but I never realized it could all get so complicated. Over the course of the semester, the […]
  • San Francisco & Philadelphia
    Freemasons and Philadelphia are as American as apple pie (see Steven Sora’s article “The Heretics Who Lit the Way for America” in Atlantis Rising #63). Even before America’s independence, as Sora indicated, there was a strong Ma­sonic community thriving in the “City of Brotherly Love.” Ben Franklin, the city’s great Revolutionary War hero, was also […]
  • The Untimely Demise of William Shakespeare
    On March of 1616, William Shakespeare was back in his hometown of Stratford where he lived as a grain dealer, tax collector, landlord and all around businessman. He was in fine health and was coming up on his fifty-second birthday when something caused him to contemplate his mortality. He decided it was time to get […]
  • The Skull in the Pyramid
    Illinois’ newest pyramid is the private home of the James Onan family. Until the place was closed to outsiders a few years ago, visitors from around the world flocked the 18-acre estate in which a gleaming pyramid stands surrounded by an 8-foot-high wall decorated with hieroglyphic motifs. Commanding immediate attention is a 200-ton colossus, the […]
  • Galactic Alignments & More
    This publication has been accused of making “conventional thought” a kind of whipping boy. The implication would be that this “conventional thought” is itself innocent in the matter and is getting a bad rap from the likes of us. We, on the other hand, convinced that the Conventionals are not exactly giving us the straight […]

    “The doors of the sky are opened, the doors of the firmament are thrown open at dawn for Horus of the Gods. He goes up to the Field of Reeds, he bathes in the Field of Reeds.”—Utterance 325, Pyramid Texts In numerous ancient traditions there is a description of a hidden and blessed place linked […]
  • The Tortured Life and Times of Wilhelm Reich
    This is the year that researchers of Wilhelm Reich’s discoveries have been waiting for. Dr. Wilhelm Reich was a scientist whose downfall came when he said a federal court judge can’t rule on the validi­ty of science matters. Reich was convicted on a charge of contempt of court and was escorted to prison. Shortly be­fore […]
  • Searching for the Little People
    NEW FLORES CAVE FOUND In Indonesia archaeologists have now found a large cave on Flores island beneath the one where the remains of a tiny human were located four years ago. The bones which have become known as Homo Floresiensis have generated con­siderable controversy among scientists. On one hand are those who say the 30,000+-year-old […]
  • Evidence for Extreme Human Antiquity in Greece
    How long have humans been present in Greece? We know quite a bit about the classical Greek civilization. But what about before that? In Timaeus, Plato tells how the famous Greek lawmaker Solon visited Egypt. And there he began to speak to an Egyptian priest about the ancient history of the Greeks. He spoke of […]
  • On Knowing God & More
    It’s 1970 and a young Deepak Chopra sits in front of a slot machine in Las Vegas. He’s just arrived from India to com­plete a medical residency and has brought all of $8 with him; enough, he decides, to warrant a gamble. Perhaps in a preview of how America would receive him, Lady Luck smiled, […]

    Recently in a couple of arguments with a pair of self-styled experts in the revealed wisdom of the current order, we were told in no uncertain terms that the writers of this publication were not qualified, academically speaking, to dis­cuss the topics which they have dared to do in these pages. Since both gentlemen seemed […]
  • The Antimatter Threat

In October, 2004 the San Francisco Chronicle caused a stir by publishing a story indicating that the U.S. Air Force was far advanced in the development of an antimatter weapon. Here are a few excerpts: “Air Force pursuing antimatter weapons “Program was touted publicly, then came official gag order “by […]

  • Was the Ark Electrical?
    Why are illustrations showing the Ark or Arc of the Covenant with facing angels, as in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” bogus? The answer can be found in the Old Testament.

    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.” […]

    “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 […]
  • 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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

  • Power from the Nightside
    Mobil and Exxon won’t like it. Neither will the nuclear power industry. Even solar power enthusiasts may frown in disbelief. But give them time. All new ideas, especially those that reverse conventional wisdom (180 degrees exactly), fall on deaf ears, unwilling ears. Take polar energy, for example: that glorious spectacle of colored lights painting the […]
  • Dealing with Visitors from Other Worlds
    On some South Pacific islands in the 1940s the native tribes came to believe that western manufactured stuff (“Cargo”) had been created by divine spirits in the sky and was intended for their people. They objected to the unfair­ness of sending such bounty to white people alone and formed what were called “cargo cults” to […]

    The legends and scriptures of the Near and Far East are full of references to an ancient “King of the World” who sup­posedly ruled the earth thousands or even millions of years ago and is destined to make his reappearance on the world stage as we inch towards a new age. The Tibetans maintain the […]

    Among the many topics of particular interest to those who question the standard formulations of the pardigm police are the shroud of Turin, the ark of the covenant, the role of Mother Mary, the secret history of the United States, etc. Though many studies have purported to offer the last word on these and similar […]

    I may be wrong, but I’m guessing you probably weren’t high school jocks, nor were you devastated if your favorite college football team didn’t make it to the playoffs.

  • F.L. Wright vs. G.I. Gurdjieff
    Roger Friedland, a cultural sociologist, and Howard Zellman, an architect, have written a very good book about a strange and little-known subject, the Taliesin Fellowship of Frank Lloyd Wright (The Fellowship, HarperCollins, NY, 2006). Wright, himself, is certainly well known, through his buildings, his writings on architecture, his autobiogra­phy, a number of other biographies, and […]
  • Human Evolution & the Cygnus Constellation?
    The evolution of modern man has long been one of the greatest mysteries of time. When did “modern” humans first appear? When did they make the first art? When did they build the first temples? When were the first true cities con­structed? And what was it that inspired these developments? These questions form a huge […]
  • The Fall of the Royal Society
    Orthodox history tells us that Robert Hooke was a minor character with no accomplishments to speak of, certainly none to equal those of the majestic Isaac Newton. Instead we learn that he was a jack-of-all-trades who started many projects and finished few, and we discover that he was a colorless, misshapen recluse who attempted, but […]
  • Echoes of Atlantis from Homer
    The Homeric tales of the Iliad and the Odyssey do not add up. There was no “Troy” in Turkey until Alexander built one. There are no giant waves and major tides in the inlet of the Bosporus straits closest to the alleged Troy. There was no alliance of Greeks in 1200 B.C. as they themselves […]
  • The End of Invisible Breakthroughs
    If the coming energy revolution had a theme song, its lyrics would have remained much the same for decades. One refrain is about breakthrough energy discoveries being ignored by the established mindset. However, I believe we’re approaching a time when the breakthroughs will appear evident to a wide swath of the public, with or without […]
  • John Searl Makes a Comeback
    John Searl is the very stuff of myth and legend, at least, in the arcane circles of antigravity and over-unity energy, a maverick inventor whose new power system back in the 60s, the Searl Effect Generator (SEG), suddenly “sprouted wings,” as it were, and took off. What really happened, though, as told by Searl himself, […]
  • The Mystery of the Nampa Image
    In 1889, workers were drilling a water well near Nampa, in southwest Idaho. In his book Origin and Antiquity of Man (1912, pp. 266-267), geologist George Frederick Wright (1838-1921) reported, “The record of the well shows that…they had penetrated first about fifty feet of soil, then about fifteen feet of basalt, and afterwards passed through […]
  • Mussolini’s Roswell?
    While events surrounding Roswell, New Mexico sixty years ago are world famous, it was not the first time that a crashed alien space-craft was allegedly found and concealed by government officials. Yet, its existence is virtually un­known outside Italy despite an abundance of authenticated contemporary documents confirming a downed UFO be­fore World War II. To […]
  • Apostle of Mu
    James Churchward’s The Lost Continent of Mu is a classic book that has withstood the test of time. Like Ignatius Donnelly’s Atlantis: The Antediluvian World (first published in 1882), The Lost Continent of Mu has never been out of print. Its message, while somewhat dated, still resonates with readers interested in the occult and ancient […]

    There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, pure, simple and useful life.—Booker T. Washington I have often observed that astronomers have a keen sense of myth.

  • ICE AGE: Fact or Fiction?
    In the beginning, the future earth was but a molten mass of fiery gases. Like all corporeal worlds, its destiny was to begin in fire and end in ice.

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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • Habs and Habs Nots
    In the second week of August, my e-mail inbox started filling up with copies of newspaper articles, sent to me by my readers, about a new fossil find in Africa. Actually, one of the articles was sent to me by Doug Kenyon, the editor of Atlantis Rising. I took that as a hint he would […]
  • Challenging the Consensus
    In 2005 Inner Traditions/Bear published Forbidden History, a collection of Atlantis Rising articles dealing with pre­historic technologies, extraterrestrial intervention and the suppressed origins of civilization. The book did so well— becoming one of the publisher’s bestselling titles and already translated into several languages—that in 2006 we all decided to do it again. With the publication […]
  • Quebec’s Curious Hammer
    In 1964, archaeologist Thomas E. Lee was scouting near an excavation underway near the village of Imaha, in north­ern Quebec, when he found a tall, curious monument on the desolate north bank of the Payne Estuary, 15 miles above the village of Payne Bay, near the west coast of Ungava Bay. The two-ton stone structure […]
  • Sky-Time
    Did you know that earthquakes occur in cycles? Scientists, charting the intensity of seismic upheavals since the 17th century, have come upon “cluster years” marking the most destructive quakes. Regardless of location—China, Italy, western Pacific—there is a definite peak period, every eleven years. Interesting that the earth’s thermosphere also obeys an 11-year rhythm in its […]
  • Telepathy: a Sympathy of Souls
    While on a mission to meet with the French King Henry the Fourth, the cleric and poet John Donne (1572-1631) had a vision. He saw his wife carrying a dead child in her arms. At the time his wife was pregnant, and Donne was so tak­en by the incident that a messenger was dispatched to […]
  • The Dimensions of Infinity
    We stand at a very special point in time, between all that has preceded this moment and all moments to come and, moreover, we are also situated at a very precise point at the frontier between all that is small and all that is large— between the microcosm and the macrocosm. While it may seem, […]
  • The War for Planet Earth
    We reported in Part I (“The Nazi/ET Connection,” Atlantis Rising #65) that, strange as it might sound, the case could be made that German advanced scientific knowledge and weaponry was supplied by extraterrestrials somehow con­nected with a purported underground civilization in Tibet. Exactly how this information was conveyed is not clear, but some argue that […]
  • Getting the Dream Thing Right
    Right off the bat, Ken Eagle Feather tells me he’s not Native American, but is “white as wonder bread.” The name was given to him by don Juan Matus, the same don Juan encountered by Carlos Castaneda of The Teachings of Don Juan, A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan fame. He had it legally […]
  • Getting at the Facts
    In March, the French National Space Agency announced, to much public fanfare, that it would release all of its UFO files. Following the French lead, Great Britain’s Ministry of Defense soon stated it would do the same. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the government was planning to make public its own “X-files” on […]
  • H. G. Wells and Near-Death Experience
    “She was not clear whether it was night or day nor where she was; she made a second effort, wincing and groaning, and turned over and got in a sitting position and looked about her…. She seemed to be in a strange world, a sound­less, ruinous world, a world of heaped broken things. And it […]
  • The Lost Library of Ivan the Great
    Students of history, religion, science and sociology can never forgive the destruction of some of the world’s most im­portant libraries. The library at Alexandria once held 500,000 volumes before it was destroyed by Julius Caesar, and the library at Carthage with 200,000 volumes met the same fate after war with Rome. The Chinese Emperor Shi­Hwang-ti […]
  • Tesla and Otis Carr—Too Far Out?
    An inventor whose reputation was ruined in the eyes of the 1950s public may yet be vindicated. When you dig into history of either “free energy” or saucer-shaped spacecraft, you run across the name Otis T. Carr. He was forced to call his invention an “amusement device” in order to get a United States patent. […]

  • The True Confessions of Lt. Haut
    In June, the famous dispute over reports of a crashed UFO near Roswell, NM in 1947 got a new lease on life from a dead man. One important witness to those controversial events, whatever they were, had previously refused to talk, but now he has, from beyond the grave. Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public […]
