  • Fighting Brothers
    When discussing esoteric elements that influenced the American Revolution, alternative researchers often present Freemasonry as central to the time. Often overlooked though are the practical elements that made up Freemasonry in the colonies during the mid-eighteenth century. Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American […]
  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
  • The Life & Times of Tom Bearden, Pioneer
    Who is Tom Bearden?” I asked a new friend at the second International Tesla Society Conference. It was 1986 and we were in Colorado Springs listening to a speaker who revealed some new insight about “free energy” inventions. My friend was rushing away to find a fax machine—to be first to send the news to […]
  • Judgment Day
    After many years of murdering, raping, and pillaging with malice aforethought, twin brothers Jed and Ned were final­ly stopped by the police. Jed was shot and killed instantly, while Ned was apprehended and sent to prison for life. Dur­ing his confinement, Ned “found” God and repented. Jed and Ned are fictional characters created here to […]
  • No Knowledge Filtering Here
    Some years ago, Doug Kenyon, editor of Atlantis Rising, asked me to write a column for this magazine. I agreed, and it was a good decision. I named the column “The Forbidden Archeologist.” In it, I have commented on many topics of interest to me. The first is archaeological evidence for extreme human antiquity. According […]
  • The Mystery of Mudra
    For centuries yogis, martial artists, and spiritual seekers have used ritual hand gestures as part of their spiritual prac­tice. Their belief is that these positions help them attain the mental and physical discipline or spiritual transforma­tion they seek. We all use common gestures to reinforce certain ways of feeling and thinking. What do you feel […]
  • Planning the Pyramids
    For thousands of years, scientists from around the world have tried to understand how the ancient Egyptians erected their giant pyramids, especially the Great Pyramid at Giza. Now, an architect and researcher at the Norwegian Univer­sity of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim says he has discovered a previously unappreciated dimension to the problem—the extraordinarily […]
  • Politics, Money & Science
    Despite the myth of the “objectivity” of “pure science,” there is nothing fully objective about the way practicing scien­tists actually pursue their business. Scientists, like everyone else, are influenced either subtly or explicitly by combi­nations of social, political, and religious pressures (even when reacting against such factors) and by deeply ingrained assumptions and worldviews that […]
  • Heroic Drama for the World
    In mid October 2010, as a worldwide audience of over a billion watched in fascination, 33 miners, after spending a record 68 and 69 days trapped in the darkness, were rescued from the ruins of a collapsed mine almost half a mile be­neath the desolate Acapana desert of Chile. The operation went off without a […]
  • Queen Victoria and the Other Side
    In an October 2006 “Tooth and Claw” episode of BBC-TV’s hit science-fiction series Doctor Who, Britain’s Queen Vic­toria pays a visit, in 1879, to Torchwood House, in Scotland. Torchwood, which contains an observatory, was the scene of many a lively discussion about the mysteries of the heavens between Victoria’s open-minded husband, Prince Albert, who died […]

  • The Stones of the Ancients
    A number of writers and researchers have suspected for years that the Great Pyramid at Giza and other ancient struc­tures around the world may actually be machines, representing a technology so foreign to our own that most people do not recognize it. The Great Pyramid is constructed with uncanny precision and has ascending and descending […]
  • The Up-to-Date Ancients
    Some mysteries continue to defy explanation. That doesn’t seem to translate into acceptance by the main stream me­dia, but it makes for some very interesting films, like this issue’s offerings. MAYAN PROPHECIES AND CROP CIRCLES: An Extraordinary Connection UFO TV and Spirit Culture Media This DVD was a three-time award winner at the International UFO […]
  • The Search for Becket’s Bones
    On an August night in 1990, sometime after midnight, two young men with Dickensian-sounding names approached Britain’s Canterbury Cathedral. Armed with crowbars, bolt cutters, chisels, wire, masking tape, and a torch, Peregrine Prescott and Risto Pronk were well prepared for surreptitious entry but perhaps not well enough. Despite the fact that both young adventurers were […]
  • Linda Goodman & the Secret of the Hollywood Cross
    Some stories are weirder than anything Hollywood screenwriters could dream up. But then, facts are often stranger than fiction. How would you react if you were told that the phallus of the Egyptian god Osiris is possibly located un­derneath a buried pyramid in the very center of Hollywood—Los Angeles? Doesn’t this sound like something from […]
  • How Modern Is Modern Science?
    You might think that since quantum physics is a relatively new branch of science, this burgeoning “new science” phi­losophy is also new. It is not. These new insights into nature and reality are very old but have been masked by mod­ern attempts to characterize the ancient Egyptian culture and religion as primitive. The concepts of […]
  • Jupiter in Aries: January – June 2011
    Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system; eleven Earths could fit side by side across the face of the gas giant. Jupiter is fifth from the Sun, and its orbit is five times farther than Earth’s orbit. Jupiter spins on its axis in ten hours, less than half the time it takes Earth […]
  • Close Encounter of the Ball Lightning Kind
    Some paranormal events are so extraordinary and inexplicable; that they form the outstanding experiences of a life­time. My own encounter began at daybreak last September 16, when publisher Wayne May and I drove from the offic­es of his magazine, Ancient American, in Colfax, Wisconsin, to an alternative archaeology symposium some 200 miles away. Before arriving […]

  • Atlantis, Apparitions, and Archetypes
    Nestled on the edge of England’s inhospitable Atlantic coast, Cornwall’s Land’s End peninsula is imprinted with thou­sands of years of history. Megalithic monuments, Celtic shrines, and tin mines dot the landscape, recalling the day when pagan princesses, pirates, and smugglers roamed the land. In 1998, a team of Russian scientists set out to discover the […]

    The most notorious human fossil discovered in the nineteenth century Gold Rush mines of California was the Calave­ras skull. The state geologist of California, J. D. Whitney (The Auriferous Gravels of the Sierra Nevada of California 1880, pp. 267–273), described how it came into his possession. In February 1866, James Mattison, the principal own­er of […]

    In January of 2010 the last of several very unusual creatures was discovered on the beaches near Montauk Point on New York’s Long Island. To date, the creatures have not been identified as any known species. They had turned up in July of 2008 and again in 2009. The mostly-local media had a field day […]

    The hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world.

    On January 29, of 2010, the Hubble space telescope snapped a picture of one of the most unusual space objects ever seen.

  • Rings of Fire
    Doomsday mavens have had their hands full recently, correlating every eschatological prediction (from Nostradamus to the Mayan calendar) with the current spate of earthquake and volcanic activity. Haiti, Chile, China, Japan, the United States, and several other countries have experienced temblors measuring high enough on the Richter Scale to cause widespread destruction and, in the […]
  • Secrets of the Seventh Ray
    In his article for Atlantis Rising #84 (“Politics and Psychic Manipulation in Romania”), Boston University professor and author of The Parapsychology Revolution (Tarcher/Penguin, 2008), Dr. Robert Schoch, wrote about a phenome­non called “The Violet Flame,” which he said had played an important role in the history of Romania. “The color vio­let is unlike any other […]
  • The Trojan Connection
    The perennial mystery of the Trojan War is its lingering fascination over thousands of years for peoples utterly re­moved from the event. Troy, a 2004 feature film starring Brad Pitt, was the 70th top-grossing movie of all time. It was preceded by a dozen other U.S. and foreign-made cinematic interpretations of the doomed city, most […]
  • The Trouble with Atheists
    According to various surveys, polls, and studies, atheists account for roughly 10 percent of the U.S. population and around 25 percent of Canada’s. There are indications, however, that the numbers are much higher, perhaps closer to 20 percent in the U.S. and as much as 40 percent in Canada. One study suggests that only five […]
  • Seeking Expert Opinion
    When the mainstream press ignores and attempts to debunk much of the important research reported in this maga­zine, it is easy to lose sight of the experience and qualifications of the paradigm-challenging scientists which makes them such a threat to the academic establishment. Some DVDs, though, will remind you. DNA BY DESIGN: The Origin of […]
  • When is Coincidence Something Else?
    Much of modern science seems to rest on a foundation of dogmatic (and unproven) philosophical materialism, a be­lief that matter (mass/energy/space/time), which the scientists cannot even define, is the prime reality and that mind/ thought/spirit/consciousness is a secondary manifestation. Aside from the fact that people who pride themselves on questioning every hypothesis should not accept […]
  • Father Crespi’s Curious Collection
    For decades, metal sheets with writing have been recovered from various archaeological sites in South America. Until recently, all were labeled “frauds,” but slowly, archaeologists are beginning to change their opinion. The ancient Americans, it seems, knew perfectly well how to work with metal… and, moreover, had a complex system of writing. The story of […]
  • Feeling the Future
    We live in a cause and effect world. Causes come before their effects, not vice versa. Time is unidirectional, moving from the past, to the present, to the future. We might regret or cherish the past, but we cannot go back in time. I teach. My students study and then take the exam. It would […]

    “We’re at a historic meeting.” At the November 2010 Renaissance Charge Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, this comment was expressed by appreciative voices with various accents.

Many were there because for the first time since a Tesla symposium in […]

    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 […]
  • Some Thoughts on Ancient Aliens
    In 2010, I appeared in several episodes of season two of the Ancient Aliens television series on the History Channel. I also appeared briefly in some episodes of season one of the series, and in the original pilot show. The theme of the show is that in ancient times, extraterrestrials visited the earth in spacecraft. […]
  • Hitler’s Last Card
    NAZIS ARE MAKING NEWS AGAIN Late in 2010 headlines in several European newspapers, including Britain’s Mail and Telegraph screamed that Hit­ler’s last attempt to win the war could have been a surprise assault on London and New York carried out with giant antigravity flying disks—an attack thwarted only by the end of WWII. Long circulated […]
  • The Icon that Saved Russia
    The Virgin of Kazan is one of the most revered Russian religious icons. Its disappearance at the time of the Russian Revolution was a catastrophe, but its resurgence and its link with Pope John Paul II and Fatima has confirmed the icon’s mythical status of securing the fate of “Mother Russia.” The fall of the […]
  • Italian Inventors Enter ‘Cold Fusion’ Arena
    An “Energy Catalyzer” is the new item on the energy frontier at the time of this writing. Italian engineer Andrea A. Rossi and Professor Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna announced a technology for a reaction that produces excess heat—at low cost and in quantities that would make it commercially useful. It involves a […]
  • Near-Death Experience in the Olden Days
    Before Dr. Raymond Moody named the Near-Death Experience (NDE) and popularized it in his 1975 best-selling book Life After Life, very few people were aware of the phenomenon. Over the past 35 years, however, there have been doz­ens of books discussing the NDE—a phenomenon which suggests that there is an energy body or spirit body […]
  • Passing the Torch
    Is the mystery and magic in our world diminishing? Are there still secrets or subtle esoteric teachings to learn by fol­lowing a metaphysical path of study? You may think that modern science has dispelled magic from the world, but if you look closer, you can see it exists in full view. The rituals we use […]
  • Egypt’s Gathering Antiquities Storm
    In January and February, as the world watched in fascination, a relatively peaceful revolution (at least the first act thereof) played out on the streets of Egypt. When the dust had begun to clear the man known as the “last pharaoh,” president Hosni Mubarak, had been driven from power. The full meaning of it all […]

  • The Mirror Factor
    On a certain night in the middle of the seventeenth century, in a room in the Canongate section of Edinburgh, Scot­land, a beautiful Scottish noblewoman named Lady Primrose held onto the hand of a somber, monk-like man in a black silk robe while she gazed into a magic mirror. Lady Primrose had recently been abandoned […]

  • Uranus in Aries 2010–2019
    “It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.” Adrienne Rich William Herschel, a musician who took up astronomy as a hobby, officially discovered Uranus on March 13, 1781. Later, it was realized that Uranus had been seen and recorded at least 20 times between 1690 […]
  • Easter & the Rites of Spring
    It is no coincidence that the Christian celebration of Easter and the beginning of Spring seem to be one and the same event. Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, and, of course, the most sacred event in Christianity, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, are related in many ways although some, you may find, are surprising. It should […]
  • Egyptology on the Brink
    With the removal of President Mubarak, Egypt’s future—though uncertain—has, many believe, entered a positive new era. Egyptology, the scientific investigation of ancient Egypt, is also clearly going through momentous changes. In a late-breaking development, Zahi Hawass, the virtual embodiment of current-day Egyptology, who now finds him­self facing extraordinary new allegations of nepotism and corruption, has […]
  • Gardens Under the Sea
    Fundamentalist Christians and Orthodox Jews tend to believe that everything in the Judeo-Christian Bible is literally true, while at least some atheists deny that any of the Bible could be based on fact. It is clear, though, that many pas­sages in the Bible seem to be based on real historical events. There really was a […]

    When the biblical author (divine or anonymous) of the Old Testament stated in Genesis 6:1-4 that “there were giants in the earth in those days”—i.e., before the Deluge—he might have been referring to the truly gigantic image of a man etched into the side of a green hill in the south of England. There, visitors […]

  • Fighting Brothers
    When discussing esoteric elements that influenced the American Revolution, alternative researchers often present Freemasonry as central to the time. Often overlooked though are the practical elements that made up Freemasonry in the colonies during the mid-eighteenth century. Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American […]
  • 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.” […]

    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 Seven Gates of Paradise
    Temples have long been associated with a state of bliss. Through a combination of stone and geometry, and the cunning harnessing of natural forces, they became places of power where a person is enabled to pierce a veil into worlds and levels of reality that access a vast sea of information and expanded potential. In […]
  • The Angel Effect
    Many historical accounts of meetings with angels or messengers of God have been recorded. Joan of Arc had ongoing conversations with angels and prophetic visions of battles and finding lost swords. The prophet Muhammad is said to have received the Koran from the angel Jibra’il (Gabriel). The Aviator Charles Lindbergh reported conversations with phantoms that […]
  • Stunning Possibilites Emerge for New Energy

  • Secrets of the Jinn
    Recently, while in the United Arab Emirates (February 2011), I traveled to the foothills of Jebel Hafeet in Abu Dhabi, along the border with Oman. Here 5000-year-old, beehive-shaped stone tombs record an all-but-forgotten ancient people. Based on artifacts found in their graves, they traded with Mesopotamia, possibly Egypt, and perhaps even more remote regions. But […]
  • Forbidden Archaeology Deep in the Heart of Texas
    Recently, David Campbell called my attention to a fascinating article published in 1933 in the Bulletin of the Texas Arche­ological and Paleontological Society (The Brownwood Skull, September, vol. 5, pp. 95-98). The article, by researcher Cyrus Newton Ray (1880-1996), told of a human skull blown out of a huge limestone boulder in Brownwood, a small […]

    Photographic pioneer and artist Louis Daguerre’s 1824 painting, The Interior of Rosslyn Chapel, shows two workmen crouching by the base of a pillar, with three Templar Knights nearby. One workman is staring intently at some bones they have found beneath the flagstones. For a bizarre example of life imitating art, let’s fast-forward 186 years. On […]
  • Straight Track To Treasure?
    In England, so-called ley lines have been studied for nearly a century. The theory is that for some unknown reason, man-made monuments and geographical features line up on long, straight lines over the landscape. Some believe it was done by intention, others because of telluric currents, and the majority apparently believe it is was simply […]
  • Sumerians in Tiahuanaco?
    Whether or not the so-called new world was visited by travelers from the old world before Columbus, has been a heated controversy for over a century. From Thor Heyerdahl to Barry Fell, from Percy Fawcett to Zecharia Sitchin, many alternative scholars have argued that explorers from Europe, Asia, Africa, and elsewhere were here long before […]

Beginning in 2009, […]

  • Fighting Brothers
    When discussing esoteric elements that influenced the American Revolution, alternative researchers often present Freemasonry as central to the time. Often overlooked though are the practical elements that made up Freemasonry in the colonies during the mid-eighteenth century. Freemasonry in its modern sense had only been publicly declared in 1717, and its position in the American […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • The Perilous Plight of Rockall Island
    There are several North Atlantic islands that are little more than the tops of mountains growing from the sea floor. Possibly one of the smallest lies 180 miles from St. Kilda, an island belonging to Scotland and 270 miles from Donegal in Ireland. Called Rockall in the Shipping Forecast, issued by the British Meteorological Office, […]
  • When Three Is a Charm
    Rushton Lodge—better known as the Triangular Lodge—is considered by many to be only a folly—a building without a real purpose, other than decoration. But the history of the structure is more than interesting, inviting the question whether it might not actually contain a veritable secret message, so far not uncovered. Such questions arise from the […]
  • Lost Subterranean Wonders
    Long lost pathways into subterranean domains have always been a source of fascination for students of ancient mysteries. This month’s selections should provide plenty of food for thought. LOST CAVES OF GIZA Andrew Collins Produced and Narrated by Greg Little Ever since the age of the pharaohs, stories have circulated concerning the existence beneath the […]
  • The Water Dimension
    Decades ago, when I was a NORAD Intelligence Officer, I was also a UFO investigator. This was an additional duty, since UFO investigation was no longer a responsibility of USAF intelligence due to a regulation change from AFR-200-2 to AFR 80-17. One day I received a report from a civilian who had seen a UFO […]
  • Did Ancient Shamans Know Secrets of the Wave?
    In a recent conversation with Toby Grotz, I again had the privilege of glimpsing the big picture of an emerging future science. It’s based on a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Throughout history and prehistory, individuals have momentarily seen beyond the material world into the non-material. They peer more deeply into creation and […]
  • Dating the Oldest Cut Marks on Bone
    In August 2010, Nature, one of the world’s most authoritative scientific journals, reported that ancient hominins (ape men) used stone tools to cut flesh from bones about 3.4 million years ago (McPherron, S. P. et al. Nature no. 466, 2010, pp. 857-860). This, it was claimed, is about a million years earlier than any other […]
  • The Paraffin Mold Experiments
    “It is very absurd, if a truth can be absurd.” So stated renowned French scientist Charles Richet, referring to the results of some experiments that he and Dr. Gustave Geley, the director of the International Metaphysical Institute (Institut Metapsychique International) in Paris, had carried out with Franek Kluski, a Polish medium, during November and December […]
  • Mysteries in the Fields
    Academic physics has finally decided to apply itself to the crop circle enigma. In the August issue of Physics World, a professor from the University of Oregon has taken a crack at explaining just how the astonishing diagrams and patterns which appear in fields all over the world, especially in England, could have come to […]
  • The Pyramid Electric
    In January 2011, an important and historic exploration took place inside the Great Pyramid. However, the remarkable evidence that was discovered seemed to pass into history without fuss or fanfare. A small article in the New Scientist magazine, with the promise of a future scholarly report on the findings, seemed to be an extremely muted […]

  • Return Engagements
    Do you believe in reincarnation? Have you lived before? Will you come to live again in another physical body after you die? Several of the major world religions and cultures around the world have some belief in reincarnation. By some estimates, as many as a quarter of people worldwide hold such beliefs. How would you […]
  • Nemesis or Tyche?
    “Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi, Sufi Poet, 1207-1273 CE A storm of controversy swirls around this subject. The recent excitement began with a science news story that went viral on the Internet, announcing that scientists J. J. Matese and Daniel Whitmire had found a […]
  • The Brownings and the Medium
    May 7, 2012, will be the 200th anniversary of the birth of Robert Browning (1812-1889), the great English Victorian poet to whom we owe such works as The Pied Piper of Hamelin and Pippa Passes. If, on that birthday, the poet were to be awakened from his grave for a day to join in the […]
  • Places of the Builder Gods
    If we had been given the choice of incarnating in a period such as 16,000 BC, the world would have looked a lot different than it does today. This was the time of the last glacial maximum, when more of the Earth’s landmass was exposed. During this period Australia and New Guinea formed a massive […]
  • Mysteries of the Effigy Mounds
    When early nineteenth century pioneers first crossed into the upper middle west of North America, they found a region later known as the state of Wisconsin blanketed with more than 10,000 landscaped images. After only a few decades, virtually all of them were obliterated by the farmer’s plow but not before they were documented by […]
  • Indians & Aliens
    Most readers of this magazine are familiar with ancient legends that seem to describe human encounters with extraterrestrials in prehistoric times—Ezekiel and the wheels within wheels, stories of sky-gods in ancient Egypt, winged gods in Mesopotamia, the Dogon tribe in Africa. Less well known are Native American legends that may also point to an awareness […]
