Some places across the globe, for years, have baffled the scientific community and historians alike. These places are mysterious and possess characteristics that have not been explained scientifically, even after decades or perhaps centuries of study and research that have gone into them. Radio frequency failure, compass malfunction, aircraft going off the radar and other unexplained malfunctions of navigational and electronic equipment are some of the bizarre events witnessed at these places over the years. Names such as Zona Di Silencio or the Zone of Silence, in Northern Mexico, The Bermuda Triangle, The Devils Triangle – off the Japanese coast, The Carnac Stones in France, The Gate of the Gods are predominant names in this enlistment. Here we try to find a few answers to some of these perplexities that have intrigued mankind over the years.
Perhaps the most famous or rather infamous of all the mysterious places is the Bermuda Triangle. For centuries this stretch of ocean covering more than 500,000 sq miles located between Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda have tested the intelligences of scientists, experienced sailors and military investigators alike. Philip Coppens observes, “we witness planes disappearing, weird lights being seen and a whole bunch of other weirdness in this tight corner of the Atlantic. Crews of ships have just disappeared without any sign of struggle and absolutely no trace of them have been found over the years”. What caused the ships to disappear, why have the aeronautical and navigational equipment stopped working or changed course by itself? Historical navigational records show, the anomalies of Bermuda Triangle is much older than most people realize. In fact it all started with Christopher Columbus’ navigational log. He being such a respected sailor and an esoteric navigator, his logs about the journey to the new world is considered remarkably accurate. As he approached the area called the Bermuda Triangle, he witnessed strange phenomena such as compass malfunctions, the following night he witnessed a strange ball of fire hit the ocean. Also he witnessed weather abnormalities and a series of other events that cannot be explained as logically foreseen. So clearly, the events at Bermuda Triangle is not an urban myth that started in the threshold of 20th century, its as old as there are accounts of people going into that area.
About 450 years after Columbus on December 5, 1945 the USAF faced the Bermuda Triangle’s most perplexing mystery. At 14:00 HRS, 5 torpedo bombers flew from an airbase at Fort Lauderdale, Florida on a routine training exercise. Not long into the 2 hour long mission, all 5 planes were suddenly gone. The Mystery was compounded when USAF sent a rescue mission and it too disappeared. 6 planes, all flown by skilled pilots, had flown into oblivion. This incident sent shock waves across the United States Air Force and other defense establishments, because this was modern era, we had equipments to trace them, we had radio, we had the RADAR and yet 6 planes had vanished without trace. According to Philip Coppens, “as if all of these aircraft have been snapped out of our reality, into ‘something else’ and of course what that something else is, that’s the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle”.
Over the years only a few have lived to tell us what anomalies occur at the Bermuda Triangle. However, American pilot Bruce Gernon is an exception. In 1970, Gernon, his father and a business associate were flying from the Bahamas to Florida, when Gernon reported seeing a strange cloud directly in front of their plane. Then as they approached, Gernon reported seeing the cloud form a doughnut shaped hole or a vortex. “The hole was initially large but gradually narrowed down, and as I entered the ‘tunnel’, a strange thing happened. It was like looking down into a rifle barrel. It started swirling slowly counter clockwise and I witnessed some intense electricity and there were flashes going on and off and all I could see was a grayish/ yellowish fog, I call it electronic fog. I noticed that my instruments were malfunctioning and at the same time I witnessed this unbelievable sensation”. Gernon says when he finally exited the tunnel he radioed the Miami ATC, but they could not see his plane on their Radar screen. “And then about three minutes later the radio operator came online and he said he located me over Miami, and I couldn’t believe it because I had been flying only for over 33 minutes, whereas the distance should have been about an hour and 33 minutes”. Could such a discrepancy in time and distance happen and could ETs be using such gateways to travel to earth?
Herein comes the scientific angle. According to Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, it is possible. Einstein’s theory of being able to bend space using a gravitational pull, could be applied by the Alien crafts, by using these places to acquire and harness those extra amounts of energy, warp the distances and thus attain a burst of speed in a direction of where they want to go. According to another thought process, “whenever there is an energy emission from a higher dimension or a higher plane, the energy emission would be in form of Vortices, so Vortices and Gateways are the same thing”. Since wormholes are theoretically located all across the universe, could similar gateways be used for traveling across the universe?
Also could these gateways exist in smaller areas on Earth, and strange electromagnetic levels be the key to discovering them? In most of such reports we find a strange consistency involving strange electromagnetic phenomenon in form of strange vapor or cloud. According to David Childress, “its quite possible that Bermuda Triangle is one such inter-dimensional doorway that’s used by these Aliens”. With reports of UFOs appearing and ships and portals disappearing, some believe that Bermuda Triangle is a portal that works in both directions. So if, as Ancient Alien theorists believe, that this portal has been used by ETs to visit earth since antiquity, might we one day use the same portal to visit them? Also if there is a portal in the open waters of Bermuda, might there be more such portals on Land?
A little over 400 miles south of El Paso Texas, in northern Mexico, stretches a remote and rugged section of high desert. This area near the town of Ceballos is referred to by the locals as Zona Del Silencio or the Zone of Silence. Its at the epicenter of some of the strangest phenomena ever recorded on earth. Nothing seems to work in this area, the cellphone drops out of range, the radio doesn’t catch any signal, the compass just keeps spinning, its completely bizarre. There are strange rocks everywhere, we even witness strange mutated animals in the area. The Zone of Silence was first identified by Francisco Sarabia, a Mexican pilot who claimed that his radio mysteriously failed to function while flying over the area. Its located between the same parallel as the Bermuda Triangle i.e. between 26°N and 28°N of equator and as a result goes and connects to the Egyptian Pyramids. On July 11, 1970 when the USAF lost an Athena Missile that was launched from its facility at Green River, Utah. It was programed to land 700 miles away at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. But due to some unexplained reason, the missile flew several hundred miles past its range to the Zone of Silence. According to a NASA Spokesperson, the missile mysteriously got pulled into the Zone of Silence. But this is not the only thing that got ‘pulled’ into this area. The Ancient Alien Theorists believe that an unusually large number of meteorites have crashed into the area. According to Logan Hawkes – the author of The Mexico less Traveled, “there is a very strong magnetic signature to this place and this has been proven scientifically, however we need more research to establish, whether this magnetism is strong enough to pull space debris like meteorites. And I don’t think such research is happening right now“.
Starting 3000 years ago, the Anasazi Indians inhabited the area to the North of Zona Del Silencio, today’s American Southwest. The word Anasazi means Ancient Ones and they paid great attention to the stars. Scientists have established that at about 1054 AD, a supernova explosion was visible from earth. Many believe that that first ever drawing of this event was found inside an Anasazi cave dwelling. South of the Zone of Silence, established cultures like the Maya, seem to have exact knowledge of such celestial events. Its often debated that Anasazi and the Mesoamerican cultures often used the Zone of Silence as their meeting place. But what other connections exist between these cultures and are they of celestial origin? Both the Anasazi and the Mesoamericans were great believers in Sky People – of beings who came from the sky. And the description of these heavenly people is consistent in their reports, as tall, pale skinned, white haired beings, and that is not indigenous to the region, but does match the South American descriptions of their Gods. According to the local legends, these ancient Gods made themselves known to the ancient people, is possible that these heavenly people are still letting them known today? We have established reports of UFO sightings in the region and its considerably higher than any other area in the vicinity. One of the most prominent ones came from the town of Ceballos one summer afternoon, when hundreds of people reported an object hovering over the desert on the outskirts of the town. It was described to be about 100 mt wide and had multicolored lights flashing, it wasn’t doing anything, but was just hovering over the desert. After a while it just ‘took off’ and headed towards the Zone of Silence. According to the Ancient Alien Theorists, there is a connection between the magnetic signature of this place, the alien Gods and the present day UFO sightings, however are there more such places across the world that could provide us more direct evidences of such occurrences in the past?
Located about 800 miles South East of Lima, Peru on the shores of Lake Titicaca is a sight that have mystified visitors from all around the world. Shamans still come and offer prayers at a rock wall on this high plateau as they have done for generations. This is called Puerta del Hijo Marka or the Gate of the Gods. Its a doorway carved into solid rock. According to David Childress, ” it really appears appears to be a Gateway, but it doesn’t really go anywhere”. Its literally in the middle of nowhere, at 14,000 ft, yet this is a perfect rectangle carved out of a solid block of rock and right at the bottom its got another indent in it, that looks like a door. The Peruvians refer to it as the Gate of the Gods. But the baffling question is, why would someone make a doorway, in the middle of nowhere at 14000 ft and one that doesn’t go anywhere? There has to be a way to get across this. According to Inca legend, the first priest Amaro Muro is said to have traveled through this doorway, using a special object to activate it turning the solid rock into what is known as the Star Gate. This Star Gate was activated by help of a golden disc and this golden disc fell from the sky. He held the golden disc into the gateway in a recessed area, and the gateway activated and he passed though it, never to be seen again. Archeologists have noticed a depression at the center of the doorway, and it is believed it was perhaps this depression, where the golden disc was placed. This disc was made of gold and other precious metals, and perhaps was a technological device which had the ability to open up inter-dimensional gateways. Furthermore, according to the local legends, these priests were called space brothers and came from other world. May they have come to earth through this Gateway? However, could a device to activate this door actually exist? And if so, where would the doorway lead? The Gate of the Gods could well be one end of a wormhole, a type of portal used to connect to another part of the universe or another dimension. Wormholes are an accepted element of Theoretical and Particle Physics. But have they actually existed on some of worlds most mysterious places. The aliens are perhaps coming to earth in inter dimensional crafts that allow then to travel through hyper space. And they can travel between their dimension and ours in literally no time. But to do that they have to travel through these wormholes and enter planet earth through a portal. What if one end of the portal does really exist at Puerta del Hijo Marka? Does it qualify for a reason why Peru has always been considered as a focal point of UFO and ET activities? Lake Titicaca has all sorts of strange lights associated with it. All the more, people have reported seeing strange blue balls of fire and even alien crafts coming out of the lake, and even reported seeing beings in some of the sightings. And these being are reported to have been tall, pale skinned and white haired, completely non indigenous to the local population. Another way the Ancient Aliens might have traveled is through Teleportation. But is it possible to make an object disappear at one place and make it appear in another? At the Max Planck Institute, they have already been able to dematerialize sub atomic particles, and made them reappear somewhere else. This could be a secret the ancient people knew. The area around Puerta del Hijo Marka still holds the energy and its evident as you approach the area.
But is Puerta del Hijo Marka the only mysterious place in Peru? Are there other mysterious places here? High up in the mountains of Peru, 850 miles from the Gate pf the Gods, is a breathtaking 2 mile long plateau another area of reportedly high energy. For centuries it has been a powerful scared place among the Incan people. Its called Markawasi. Markawasi is said to have very bizarre energy patterns. According to Kathy Moore, “Markawasi is a place of wizards and genies and people treat it with a great deal of veneration. When people go there, they experience a special kind of energy – or a state of Euphoria”. Most geologists believe that the stone figures at Markawasi are naturally formed through weathering and other natural processes. But is there more here than first meets the eye? Some consider Markawasi as a massive sculpture garden left behind by some ancient civilization. Could this then be not just a collection of rocks, but a sanctuary of stone monuments made by ancient civilization hundreds of thousands years ago. Researcher Daniel Rousseau was the first to make this claim in 1952. According to Kathy Moore, “He was shown a photograph of a colossal head made of stone, up in the high mountains above Lima. He made an expedition just to see the stone face, and one at Markawasi, he was astonished to see there were hundreds of such carved stones”. Among these figures people have been able to decipher few very prominent ones:
If these figures are man made, who may have carved them? The local legend says that its a place of ancient giant gods. In fact when the Spanish chroniclers came to Peru and investigated the shamanic traditions there, they were told about God named Viracocha who came in garb of man to inspect his territory, and he had given men different orders, and there were some who disobeyed them, and he promptly turned them to stone. The name Markawasi provides a clue to the time and origin of the place. The name itself predates the Incan Empire. According to Daniel Rousseau, the name Markawasi probably meant two storied house and referred to the strange complex of buildings located on the site. Rousseau further states that the ancient people who built Markawasi were called the Masma and supposedly, Peru was not their only home. Robert M Schoch observes, “The Masma were very ancient, very advanced civilization, who seemed to have had a global existence and have traveled worldwide at a very early period, in prerecorded history. Rousseau spent a lot of time looking for evidences of this civilization and seemed to have finally found it in Markawasi. He thought Markawasi was some kind of a sculpture garden built by the Masma”. If a global community of such advancement existed, whet happened to it? Was it, as some believe wiped out in the great flood, described in the Bible? Was this created as a record of events or a memento that could be passed on to the future generations, because they thought they were not going to live forever and they wanted to leave some kind of a record or warning for future generations. The next perplexing question is, if such an advanced civilization existed in antiquity, where did they come from. According to Author, George Hunt Williamson, “Markawasi was a sacred forest where the Ancient Aliens met to plan for the future and many UFO researchers believe they are still returning to this day”. David Childress says, “the most famous UFO photograph from Peru, was taken by a businessman near Markawasi, who himself was trekking up to the Markawasi Plateau, and when he saw down the valley he saw a bright silvery disk floating in the valley in broad daylight. This happened in the 70s”. Does Markawasi emit a special kind of energy and if so, have they been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Although we do not clearly understand the anomalies in these areas, however the presence of a high energy emissions, electromagnetic impulses, geomagnetic anomalies, subterranean electricity and such possibilities cannot be undermined or overruled.
Is there a reason why these inter dimensional portals appear on certain spots on our planet? Is there a pattern that could be formed. Is there a code and if yes, did our ancestors know about it? According to the ancient Astronaut theorists, the energy fields around the world are not randomly located. they are connected by what is known as the World Energy Grid – a geometric pattern of energy that crisscrosses the globe. According to David Childress, “the energy fields across the world are stronger in some areas as compared to the others, and in these areas they form sort of a Vortex, thereby making the energy more useful in its sense”. The Earth Grid Theory States that the Earth Energy Fields are connected with one another by means of a geometric pattern, and this has existed since time earth was created.
The concept of Energy Grid, for our civilization extends back to the Pythagorean School of Thought in ancient Greece. The theory states that the Earth is a dodecahedron (δωδεκάεδρον) and the geometric shapes and forms is all that matter is composed of, including the Earth. Hence it draws a parallel between them causing an energy interchange at certain prominent points of the dodecahedron. Another puzzling phenomena brought to notice by French UFO Investigator Mitchel, was that the UFO sightings do not happen in random. There is a route map and a pattern to where the UFO sightings happen and it follows not only the exact longitude patterns, but also the Earth Energy Grid. Mitchel’s report was based upon every single UFO sighting since the Roswell incident. Scientists now believe that the concentration of energy levels and UFO sightings are not a matter of coincidence. The megalithic structures in these special locations were crested to amplify the energy fields. Its a Theory known as Geomancy. By creating pyramid shaped structures and tall stone obelisks, we can magnify and channelize this power. It works on earth exactly the same way acupuncture works on the human body. In Europe, thousands of km of land stretches have been logically connected through straight lines, they are called Lead Lines. These lead lines stretch all the way from England, to France down to Italy. And on these lead lines we have names of places, and the common factor to all of these names is the word ‘star’. This cannot be attributed to the stone age man. Someone told them to do so. And they most often were called Gods, or people who came from the skies. So the question is were these people extraterrestrials? Unless the scientific community is logically able to derive answers to some of the most mysterious places on earth, we will only be left with lingering questions, and ones that cannot be answered with the approach the conventional scholarship have been taking since time immemorial. Are some of these places really inter dimensional portals, did the ancient aliens transport them through these Star Gates to another dimension. We are only left with perplexing question, that we need answers to. And answers will come only if we THINK.
