  • 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.” […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

    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.

  • 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 […]
  • The Lost Symbol and I
    Simon Cox is an interesting man. For a long time he was a researcher for some of the leading authors in the alterna­tive history field, like Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval. More recently, he has become a best-selling author him­self. His latest book is called Decoding the Lost Symbol. It is a reader’s guide to […]
  • The Lost Mind
    With an initial print run of five million copies, The Lost Symbol instantly became the biggest-selling adult hardback of all time. Most attention at the release of the book went to the Masonic themes woven into the story line, seeing this is what was likely to create the potential controversy. But there is a far […]
  • Are the Hobbits Still Living in Indonesia?
    In 2004, archaeologists announced the discovery of a new hominid on Flores Island in Indonesia. The creature was small and supposedly lived from about 74,000 to 13,000 years ago. There was some debate among archaeologists about the identity of the creature. Some, including the discoverers, believed it to be a new species. They called it […]
  • The Paranormal Travels of Mark Twain
    In late May 1858, about to disembark with his younger brother Henry as a cub pilot on board the steamboat Pennsyl­vania, Samuel Clemens, then twenty-two, one day to call himself Mark Twain, had a terrifying precognitive dream. The future author of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884, 1885) later wrote that, in this dream, he […]

  • Romans in America?
    Although mainstream archaeologists dismiss any suggestion of overseas’ visitors to America from the Old World be­fore Christopher Columbus, they were hard put to explain away the discovery this year alone of no less than nineteen ancient Roman coins at two separate locations in Kentucky. Almost immediately after the first modern Europeans arrived on the shores […]
  • The Roswell Miracle Metal
    The Battelle Memorial Institute is not well known to the general public. That is fine with the Defense Department, since they would prefer that the work that is done there remain “below the radar” as much as possible. And yet, this sprawling complex outside of Columbus, Ohio, adjacent to the Ohio State campus, along with […]
  • Shasta: Mountain of Mystery
    In our recent film “Beyond Lemuria” one of the characters, atomic physicist Xavier Jones relates: “Robert Oppen­heimer, the father of the atomic bomb, who was also a scholar of Sanskrit, believed that the world had once been dev­astated by an earlier atomic war.” He goes on to say: “When I was in India I asked a […]
  • Surgeon Searches for the Soul
    There is one short question that sums up mankind’s greatest concern: Are brain and mind one and the same? If, as mainstream science chooses to believe, they are the same, we live in a purely mechanistic world without any real meaning, and we are all marching toward an abyss of nothingness. The materialist who waves […]
  • Intelligent Productions
    Intelligent Design as a theory of life origins is gaining momentum on many fronts. Now a new DVD adds a significant new piece to the puzzle. Another offers new light on the mysteries of the Holy Grail. And still another explores the possibilities of quantum communication. You have some fascinating viewing to look forward to. […]
  • Wallis Budge Gets the Last Word
    Sir Ernest Alfred Thompson Wallis Budge was a late 19th century British linguist and historian who came to be a leading authority on ancient Egyptian culture, artifacts, and language. As a student he was fortunate to serve as an as­sistant to pioneer Egyptologist Samuel Birch, which enabled him to study Egyptian and Assyrian antiquities exten­sively […]
  • Facing Up to the Fear Thing
    From ‘global warming’ to ‘asteroid impact,’ from swine flue to ‘2012’ the sheer number of doomsday scenarios mak­ing the rounds these days is mind boggling. Stir in popular conspiracy theories —from 9/11 “truth” to Apollo-moon­landing “doubt”—heat it up on the internet and in the media, and pretty soon justifiable anxiety over the reliability of society’s […]
  • On the Consciousness Frontier with Russell Targ
    How does a laser physicist working for the CIA find his way to a spiritual awakening? Russell Targ, Ph.D., has made that journey from materialist/reductionist to psychic spy to spiritual seeker, and speaks openly about it. Targ’s psychic experiences began even before he did remote-viewing—the skill by which people envision distant places, activities, and times. […]
  • Kundalini
    Sexuality and spiritual experience have traditionally been linked in the literature of mysticism. Religious ecstasy seems strikingly similar to erotic excitement in the accounts of saints and holy people who have spoken of enlightenment—knowing ultimate reality or, in their usual term, God—in language which resorts to sexual imagery. Such im­ages, they said, were the best […]
  • Life In the Solar System Then & Now
    Given the harsh conditions on our Moon and on Mars, and even worse conditions elsewhere in our solar system, could it still be that we are not alone even in this solar system? It seems unlikely that advanced life forms could have developed on Mars, with its thin, dry atmosphere and in­tense cold, or on […]
  • Jupiter in Pisces: Jan 2010 – Jan 2011
    “When you come close to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the un­known, either there will be something solid for you to stand on, or you will fly.”—Patrick Overton The constellation of Pisces resides in the “watery” portion of the sky, which also includes […]

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

  • Eris in Aries – 1926-2048
    “Truly, Eris is a goddess to fear.” Euripides, Phoenician Women Pluto was discovered in 1930 and was considered to be a planet for seventy-six years. Then, along came Eris. At first, she was heralded as the tenth planet, since she is larger than Pluto. But the net result was Pluto’s demotion, the IAU defining a […]
  • The Great Airship of 1897
    We normally assume that the modern era of ufology began with Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of mysterious objects— later dubbed “flying saucers” by the press—over Mount Rainier, Washington, in 1947. Many, though, are surprised to learn that it actually began much earlier—during the time of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells to be exact—with the “great airship […]
  • Big Science on Trial
    Late in November of 2009 a hacker broke through the computer security system of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, and copied over 3000 pages of e-mail and computer code which were shortly disseminated across the Internet. Revealed in the documents was what climate warming skeptics soon […]
  • The Discovery of the Old World by Native Americans
    The winter of 1534 was particularly cruel to the first French adventurers in the New World led by Jacques Cartier. In their camp on the coast of the St. Lawrence River, near what would become Montreal, scurvy broke out. The hideous disease had taken the lives of twenty-five men whose bodies were piled under snowdrifts. […]
  • The Unknown Catacombs of Giza
    In recent months, rumors and evidence of excavations and underground passages on and under the Giza Plateau have surfaced. But why are the local authorities mocking and downplaying these? The Giza Plateau hosts the only surviving wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid. The site as a whole continues to intrigue many, and at one […]
  • Marvels of the Ancients
    The magic of ancient engineering continues to amaze any among us with an open mind. No matter, it seems, how many times we revisit the pyramids of Egypt or the great megalithic construction sites, our wonder grows. The fol­lowing films certainly do their part to advance the legend. PYRAMID CODE Dr. Carmen Boulter The creative […]
  • While Waiting for Deliverance
    In common to a very large percentage, if not most, of this planet’s diverse population is the expectation of the dra­matic appearance of a messiah of some kind. Fundamentalist Christians await the second coming of Jesus; many Bud­dhists look for the return of Maitreya; Shia Muslim multitudes expect the 12th Imam; some UFO enthusiasts look […]
  • Neo-Darwinism
    It was the dazzling gains made by science and technology in the nineteenth century through the application of ra­tional analysis that led people to think of applying reason to other fields. Following the brilliant success of reason and method in physics and chemistry—especially in medicine—it was natural for science to seek to apply the same […]

  • Entangled Minds and the Quantum Factor
    Do you believe in psychic phenomena or are you skeptical? Have you had an experience not explainable by materialis­tic science? If you have and you’re curious about your experiences, you may have already delved into the realm of par­apsychology. This field of anomalous leftovers is what the early psychologist and philosopher William James called the […]
  • The Holy Grail
    About 800 years ago, a French poet told of the Grail for the first time. Chretien de Troyes described it as a shining ob­ject and the world’s most precious treasure. “No gem can compare to the Grail,” he wrote. Later, Wolfram von Eschenbach declared that the Grail was a huge emerald owned by a brotherhood […]
  • Energy Whistleblowers Tell Their Stories
    One of the challenges facing the energy revolution lurks in federal patent offices. The number of secrecy orders the U.S. Government imposed on patent applications rose again in 2009, reaching the highest figure since 1996. At the end of fiscal year 2009, the government was imposing 5,081 secrecy orders. We don’t know how many of those […]

    On his first night at Lubyanka Prison in Moscow, the lean, frightened army captain was subjected to subtle cruelties he never knew existed.

  • Independent Thinking in the Academic World
    As regular readers of Atlantis Rising know, I have found myself butting heads with mainstream academics more than once.

    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 […]
  • Between Ice Ages
    Today the government and the media bombard us with assertions that due to our production of carbon dioxide, the world will soon end. We are led to believe that our puny efforts can significantly alter the climate of our entire planet. In reality, we are completely at the mercy of vast forces over which we […]
  • The Fate of the Watchers
    The Genesis Secret by Thomas Knox (HarperCollins, 2009, and see also the website http://thegenesissecret .com) is a novel centered around the discovery in southeast Turkey of the proto-Neolithic megalithic complex of Gobekli Tepe, constructed ca. 10,000 BC by an unknown race of people at the end of the last Ice Age. Thomas Knox is the […]
  • The John Dee/007 Connection
    What do the mystical Dr. John Dee and the spy James Bond have in common? A lot more than meets the eye. Dr. John Dee was a sixteenth century alchemist, magician, and Christian cabalist who so entranced Queen Eliza­beth that she even had Dee run her astrological chart to pick the most propitious day and […]
  • Energy from the Vacuum
    “All EM (electromagnetic) systems are powered by energy extracted from the vacuum. They are not powered by the mechanical energy we input to the shaft of a generator, or by the chemical energy in a battery.”—Thomas E. Bearden The theory that so-called “empty space” is actually a vibrant ocean of energy makes perfect sense and […]
  • On the Trail of the Abominable Snowman
    At 19, my fascination with the Himalayas and the yeti had so consumed me that I dropped out of college and went to the Far East to teach English. Eventually, my trail led to Kathmandu where I began to trek all over the Himalayas in an effort to photograph the creature or get hair samples. […]
  • Ancient Europeans in North America
    During late October 2008, Brad Sutherland was overseeing excavation for a private home in the southern Wisconsin town of Twin Lakes. Just two or three miles north of the Illinois border—almost midway between the cities of Mil­waukee and Chicago—the immediate vicinity was sparsely developed and under-populated, with something of the pristine and unexplored. As the […]
  • The Case for Immortality
    “When I was fully into the light I realized it was the most incredibly beautiful light that I had ever seen. It seemed to have a personality that was beyond belief-loving. I was happy just being in the light. I remember then that I heard a voice that I thought was the light that surrounded […]
  • War and Reincarnation
    The eight-year-old boy had been sobbing into his mother’s lap for fifteen minutes. Now he straightened up. He and his mother and father stood on the gently rocking deck of an oceangoing fishing boat that was moored some distance offshore in Chichi-Ima’s Futami-Ko harbor. Around them rose up the green mountains of this Pacific island […]
  • The Labyrinthine Path
    The most direct path from A to B is a straight line. The most indirect path from A to B is likely to be a labyrinth. Not to be confused with a maze, which has several dead ends, a labyrinth is a unicursal voyage that leads from a point outside the design towards the center… […]
  • Saturn in Libra Oct 2009 – Oct 2012
    “Straight is the line of duty, curved is the line of Beauty. Follow the straight line, thou shalt see, the curved line ever follows thee.”—William MacCall Saturn is an old Italian god who is identified with the earlier Greek Cronus, chief of the Titans. One tradition portrays Cronus as a selfish and autocratic ruler intending […]

    In February 11, 2010, I flew into Dubai to attend the second International Conference for Ancient Studies, where I gave a lecture titled “Forbidden Archaeology: Archaeological Evidence for the Extreme Antiquity of Humans and Hu­man Civilization.” Some of the other speakers at the conference were Robert Bauval (The Orion Mystery), Graham Hancock (Fingerprints of the […]
  • The Doomsday Fallacy
    Will the world end in 2012? Some authors—as well as some Hollywood producers—argue as much and are making loud and very disturbing predictions of catastrophic disaster ensuing from the convergence of numerous planetary and cosmic cycles. Others expect the dawn of a New Age as the “gods” or “ETs” make a long-awaited return to our […]
  • When Far Out Is Next Door
    Sometimes artists, interested in illustrating for Atlantis Rising, send us their material; and in many cases, their work is what can only be described as very strange, maybe even a trifle mad. The motive for these well-meaning, would-be contributors seems to be their conclusion that since this magazine is dealing with really “far-out” subject matter—well […]

  • 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.” […]

  • 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 […]
  • 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 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 […]

  • 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.

    Does your body know what is right or wrong for you? Can you use your body to discover the roots of an illness, find out what foods are good for you, look into your future or even find truth? There are many different alternative thera­py practitioners who believe you can. Have you been to a […]
  • Ancient Cities in the Forest
    It has been said that we might not even recognize an alien life form should we encounter one, nor the ruins of an ali­en civilization (at least not on Mars, if NASA and JPL have their way). But how about ancient ruins here on Earth? Are we often looking in the wrong places and overlooking […]
  • The Copper Scroll Conundrum
    In 1947 a number of scrolls were discovered in caves along the Dead Sea coast. They have gone down in history as “The Dead Sea Scrolls” and continue to be at the center of worldwide controversy. Why? Because the discovery and especially decipherment of these scrolls opened a radically different point of view on early […]
  • The Strange Death of Caravaggio
    One of the world’s most renowned artists and troublemakers had finally gone too far. And this time no one could pro­tect him. Previously, even after being convicted of a brutal murder, he had been allowed to join the Knights of Malta who had become his protectors. That had lasted until he committed another offense the […]
  • Easter Island’s Mystery Script
    Easter Island (Rapa Nui; Isla de Pascua) is a tiny speck of land, a mere 64 square miles, in the South Pacific just below the Tropic of Capricorn, 2300 miles west of South America. The closest inhabited land, Pitcairn Island (where muti­neers of the Bounty settled in 1790), is over 1200 miles to the west. […]
  • Firewalking
    The flyer I’d received in the mail invited me to a four-hour seminar on firewalking. “Everyone participating will be taught how to walk barefoot on hot coals without burning their feet,” it proclaimed. To a long-time investigator of the paranormal like me, it was an irresistible challenge. So I made a deposit toward the $75 […]
  • New-Energy Scientists Get New Respect
    When given $300 for an airline ticket anywhere, what kind of woman chooses to attend a conference of the American Chemical Society? And she’s not even a chemist, much less a scientist of any stripe. Yes, the ACS annual meeting was in sunny San Francisco this spring and part of her getaway trip included an […]

Bellaria is a small resort town on the […]
  • The Downside of ET Contact
    Much to the chagrin of many who eagerly await the arrival of extraterrestrials to solve the problems of Earth, astro­physicist Stephen Hawking caused considerable excitement in April by warning that, rather than seeking such con­tact, we should be trying to avoid it. The British theoretical physicist is no stranger to the limelight. His scientific career […]

  • Time Traveling for the U.S. Military
    The black and white photograph shows a boy standing alone in a clearing on the Gettysburg battlefield. He is wearing a men’s Union Army parka and shoes about four sizes too large. He appears somewhat out of place since he is all alone. In the background, a large audience is assembled, and a dais is […]
  • The Geometry of Transformation
    The summer of 2010 will witness some powerful planetary configurations. A Grand Cross forms in June at the full moon, and a Cardinal T-Square takes shape as July comes to a close. These astrological aspects may be the most in­tense in seven decades. Astrologers are watching, wondering, and trying to interpret their influence. Everyone on […]
  • A King of Atlantis for Colombia
    In his 2,300-year-old “dialogue” known as the Kritias, Plato provides the names of the first kings of Atlantis. Athens’ famous philosopher tells us very little about them, although at least some have been identified by investigators with particular places, peoples, or persons. For example, he cites an Atlantean monarch called Gadeiros. Curiously, that is the […]
  • The Sphinx
    Author/Researcher Robert Temple recently published The Sphinx Mystery (Inner Traditions, 2009). A virtual gold mine of information, the five-hundred-page-plus book is augmented by rare photographs and illustrations. Highly recommended for anyone even slightly curious over the greatest of all Egyptian mysteries, the book will prove an im­portant reference for years to come. Temple, however, draws […]
  • Codes from the Ancients
    Did our mysterious ancestors leave secret codes behind—riddles which were destined to remain virtually unbroken until our, supposedly, enlightened age could, at last, unlock them? Is, after centuries and even millennia of darkness, the wisdom of the ancients now being brought to light again? The producers of all three of the following DVDs think so. […]
  • Remembering William James
    The nineteenth century was a time of deep “soul-searching.” However, it was not soul-searching in the usual sense of deciding on the right course of action; it was a search for the soul itself. In the wake of the Ages of Reason and En­lightenment, people, particularly the educated, began to seriously doubt that such an […]

Now Dunn has produced a new book focussing on the ex­traordinary technical achievements […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
  • 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 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.

  • 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 […]
  • Between Ice Ages
    Today the government and the media bombard us with assertions that due to our production of carbon dioxide, the world will soon end. We are led to believe that our puny efforts can significantly alter the climate of our entire planet. In reality, we are completely at the mercy of vast forces over which we […]

Thomas Knox is the […]
  • The John Dee/007 Connection
    What do the mystical Dr. John Dee and the spy James Bond have in common? A lot more than meets the eye. Dr. John Dee was a sixteenth century alchemist, magician, and Christian cabalist who so entranced Queen Eliza­beth that she even had Dee run her astrological chart to pick the most propitious day and […]
  • Energy from the Vacuum
    “All EM (electromagnetic) systems are powered by energy extracted from the vacuum. They are not powered by the mechanical energy we input to the shaft of a generator, or by the chemical energy in a battery.”—Thomas E. Bearden The theory that so-called “empty space” is actually a vibrant ocean of energy makes perfect sense and […]
  • On the Trail of the Abominable Snowman
    At 19, my fascination with the Himalayas and the yeti had so consumed me that I dropped out of college and went to the Far East to teach English. Eventually, my trail led to Kathmandu where I began to trek all over the Himalayas in an effort to photograph the creature or get hair samples. […]
  • Ancient Europeans in North America
    During late October 2008, Brad Sutherland was overseeing excavation for a private home in the southern Wisconsin town of Twin Lakes. Just two or three miles north of the Illinois border—almost midway between the cities of Mil­waukee and Chicago—the immediate vicinity was sparsely developed and under-populated, with something of the pristine and unexplored. As the […]
  • The Case for Immortality
    “When I was fully into the light I realized it was the most incredibly beautiful light that I had ever seen. It seemed to have a personality that was beyond belief-loving. I was happy just being in the light. I remember then that I heard a voice that I thought was the light that surrounded […]
  • War and Reincarnation
    The eight-year-old boy had been sobbing into his mother’s lap for fifteen minutes. Now he straightened up. He and his mother and father stood on the gently rocking deck of an oceangoing fishing boat that was moored some distance offshore in Chichi-Ima’s Futami-Ko harbor. Around them rose up the green mountains of this Pacific island […]
  • The Labyrinthine Path
    The most direct path from A to B is a straight line. The most indirect path from A to B is likely to be a labyrinth. Not to be confused with a maze, which has several dead ends, a labyrinth is a unicursal voyage that leads from a point outside the design towards the center… […]
  • Saturn in Libra Oct 2009 – Oct 2012
    “Straight is the line of duty, curved is the line of Beauty. Follow the straight line, thou shalt see, the curved line ever follows thee.”—William MacCall Saturn is an old Italian god who is identified with the earlier Greek Cronus, chief of the Titans. One tradition portrays Cronus as a selfish and autocratic ruler intending […]

  • Conferences to Come & Memories of a Fallen Hero
    Non-conventional-energy conferences are appearing on the calendar for the next few months. It looks like I won’t make it abroad to Vienna in mid-March for the Symposium Tesla-Technologies subtitled Energy—The Motor of the Revolution, nor to a Free Energy Congress in St. Petersburg the week afterward. Closer to home is an April 10 meet­ing about […]

  • The Doomsday Fallacy
    Will the world end in 2012? Some authors—as well as some Hollywood producers—argue as much and are making loud and very disturbing predictions of catastrophic disaster ensuing from the convergence of numerous planetary and cosmic cycles. Others expect the dawn of a New Age as the “gods” or “ETs” make a long-awaited return to our […]
  • When Far Out Is Next Door
    Sometimes artists, interested in illustrating for Atlantis Rising, send us their material; and in many cases, their work is what can only be described as very strange, maybe even a trifle mad. The motive for these well-meaning, would-be contributors seems to be their conclusion that since this magazine is dealing with really “far-out” subject matter—well […]
