The Masonic Initiation Wells of the Quinta da Regaleira

Located near the historic center of Sintra, Portugal lies the Quinta da Regaleira- a spectacular estate that sits in a World Heritage protected landscape. 

While thousands of tourists flock to the castle every year to admire the unique architecture of the Quinta de Regaleira that combines Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance features, one of its most fascinating features is located beneath the ground – a pair of wells spiraling deep within the earth.

The wells were never used, nor intended for water collection. Instead, these mysterious underground towers were used for secretive initiation rites. 

The cultural landscape upon which the Quinta da Regaleira sits dates back thousands of years. There are archaeological sites in the area dating back to the early Neolithic (5th millennium BC) and extending all the way through to the Iron Age (4th – 2nd centuries BC).

The Roman occupation of the region began in the mid-2nd century BC and it was later conquered by the Moors. Sintra finally yielded to Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal after the conquest of Lisbon in 1147.

Afonso built an imposing royal Palace there which served as a summer residence until the late 16th century. After the suppression of the Templars in 1181, the lands passed to the Order of Christ.

In the late 15th century, Sintra was associated with Leonor, one of the greatest Queens of Portugal. Succeeding monarchs spent much time in the town, but after the Restoration of 1640, Sintra lost this link and the Royal palace served only as a prison for Afonso VI.

Sadly, most of the built heritage of the region was destroyed in an earthquake in 1755, though there are some outstanding court and military buildings, examples of religious architecture and archaeological sites. 

The Quinta da Regaleira is a vast estate that sits within this historical landscape. It has had many owners throughout the years, each contributing their own personal touch.

But it was not until 1904, after being sold to António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro, a wealthy Portuguese entomologist, that the estate was transformed into a unique palace adorned with symbolic carvings associated with Masonry, the Knights Templar, and the Rosicrucians.

The Quinta de Regaleira estate, which is sometimes referred to as “The Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire” after its latest owner, consists of a palace and chapel with exquisite décor including frescoes, stained glass windows, and lavish stuccoes.

The estate grounds feature lakes, grottoes, wells, benches, fountains, and an extensive and enigmatic system of tunnels that connect to two spiraling wells.

The pair of wells, known as the ‘Initiation Wells’ or ‘Inverted Towers’, consist of ‘winding stair’ architecture, which carries symbolic meaning including the death/rebirth allegory common to many hermetic traditions.

One of the wells contains nine platforms, which are said to be “reminiscent of the Divine Comedyby Dante and the nine circles of Hell, the nine sections of Purgatory and the nine skies which constitute Paradise.”

A smaller well, called the “Unfinished Well,” contains a set of straight staircases, connecting the ring-shaped floors to one another. It is believed that the spacing of the landings, as well as the number of steps in between were dictated by Masonic principles.

At the bottom of the well there is a compass over a Knights Templar cross, which is said to have been  Monteiro’s herald and a sign of his Rosicrucianism.

Very little is known about how the wells were used and what exactly went on there, though it is clear to see that great effort went into their planning and construction.

The beauty and symbology of the Quinta de Regaleira is like an open window into the past, and one of the last buildings in Sintra that carries the memory of the region’s rich and varied history. The initiation wells leave one to wonder about the events that once transpired there.

The VIMANAS, Ancient Flying Machines

 

 

 

A 5000 year old Vimana, an aerial vehicle from ancient India was recently discovered in a cave in Afghanistan, stuck in a “Time Well” that has caused the disappearance of at least 8 American Soldiers trying the extract it from the cave. The discovery caused a flurry of high level visits to the area by some powerful leaders of the western world. 

A group of soldiers made the discovery on a scout mission in the desert of Afghanistan.  A Vimana is an ancient flying machine described in ancient Indian sand script epics.  It is said to be protected by a strange energy barrier that is preventing troops from extracting the Vimana.

While researching the Vedas (ancient texts) including around 50 episodes of the Mahabharata, Sir Desmond Leslie concluded that the ancient chariots or flying machines called Vimanas were actually anti gravitic vehicles and some of the weapons (Brahma weapon) could well have been nuclear bombs or death rays. Descriptions in the Vedas of the resulting carnage were reminiscent of Hiroshima.

Reference to ancient Indian flying vehicles comes from ancient Indian sources, many are the well known ancient Indian epics, and there are literally hundreds of them.  Most of them have not even been translated into English yet from the old Sanskrit.

It is claimed that a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships!

Their method of propulsion, she said, was “anti-gravitational” and was based upon a system analogous to that of “laghima,” the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, “a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull.”

According to Hindu Yogis, it is this “laghima” which enables a person to levitate. Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called “Astras” by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old. The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of “antima”, “the cap of invisibility” and “garima”, “how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead.”

Bhaktivedanta, Swami Prabhupada, Krishna

Vimāna is a word with several meanings ranging from temple or palace to mythological flying machines described in Sanskrit epics.    From the ancient accounts found in the Sanskrit epic The Mahabharata, we know that a Vimana measured twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels.

Apart from its ‘blazing missiles’, The Mahabharata records the use of its other deadly weapons that operated via a circular ‘reflector’. When switched on, it produced a ‘shaft of light’ which, when focused on any target, immediately ‘consumed it with its power’.    So it is a good bet that the weapons described on the Vimana in Afghanistan would attract the attention of foreign governments and the U.S. government.   

 

To the “Time Well” encasing the Vimana, this report continues, it appears to be an electromagnetic radiation-gravity field first postulated by Albert Einstein as the Unified Field Theory and long rumored to be behind the infamous American World War II experiment in teleportation called the Philadelphia Experiment that in 1943, like the events occurring in Afghanistan today, likewise, caused the sudden “disappearance” of US Soldiers.

Most intriguing of all about this report is its stating that not just any Vimana has been discovered, but from the ancient writings contained in the cave where it was discovered, it claims that its “rightful owner” is the ancient Prophet Zoroaster who was the founder of arguably one of the most important religions of all time called Zoroastrianism.

 

Though little known to the World today, the religious philosophy of Zoroaster is credited with being the basis of all known religions that said the purpose of humankind, like that of all other creation, is to sustain aša [truth]. He further stated that for humankind, this occurs through active participation in life and the exercise of constructive thoughts, words and deeds.

Pliny the Elder, the first Century Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, further names Zoroaster as the “inventor of magic”, a claim historians say was based on the over “two million lines” written about Zoroaster contained in the Ancient Royal Library of Alexandria that was ordered destroyed by the Christian Roman Emperor Theodosius I in 391 AD.

 

Mithra with Sun and Moon

Zoroaster who was the owner of these ships.

An ancient faith based on the forces of good and evil.

Founded sometime before 6th century B.C.

They saved the people from a world wide disaster so they made caves.

Thus an undergound city was built to live past the evil winters that were to come.

 

Important to note is that for the new Christian religion to grow, all of the elements relating to its true beginnings with Zoroaster had to be destroyed, and as we can read from the 440 AD notation about this destruction written in the ancient Historia Ecclesiastica, and which says:

“At the solicitation of Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria, the emperor issued an order at this time for the demolition of the heathen temples in that city; commanding also that it should be put in execution under the direction of Theophilus. Seizing this opportunity, Theophilus exerted himself to the utmost to expose the pagan mysteries to contempt.

 

The largest resurgence of Zoroaster “magic” among human beings, since the destruction of the Ancient Royal Library of Alexandria, occurred in the 13th Century among the Cathers who lived in Southern Europe. Sadly, however, when the “power” of Zoroaster “magic” began to reappear in the World once again, the threat to Christianity was undeniable and prompted Pope Innocent III (1161-1216) to order the largest massacre massacre in Europe not duplicated until the horrors of World War II.

To how brutal the Cathers were suppressed by Catholic Rome we can read from the history of those times:    “Arnaud, the Cistercian abbot-commander, is supposed to have been asked how to tell Cathars from Catholics. His reply, recalled by Caesar of Heisterbach, a fellow Cistercian, thirty years later was “Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.”—“Kill them all, the Lord will recognize His own.”

The doors of the church of Saint Mary Magdalene were broken down and the refugees dragged out and slaughtered. Reportedly, 7,000 people died there. Elsewhere in the town many more thousands were mutilated and killed.  Prisoners were blinded, dragged behind horses, and used for target practice.

What remained of the city was razed by fire. Arnaud wrote to Pope Innocent III, “Today your Holiness, twenty thousand heretics were put to the sword, regardless of rank, age, or sex”. The permanent population of Béziers at that time was then probably no more than 5,000, but local refugees seeking shelter within the city walls could conceivably have increased the number to 20,000.”

The seemingly “perpetual” power source to this mysterious “Time Well”, this SVR report says, appears to be based on the technology of Edward Leedskalnin, who claimed to have discovered the “Secret Knowledge of the Ancients” and from 1923-1951 “single-handedly and secretly” carved over 1,100 tons of coral rock by an unknown process that created one of the World’s most mysterious accomplishments known as the Coral Castle.

What is Zoroastrianism?  Founder Zarathustra (in Greek, Zoroaster) was a Persian prophet – modern scholarship currently suggests he lived in northern or eastern Iran or nearby such as in Afghanistan or southern Russia.

 

Zoroastrian theology is strongly dualistic. In his visions, Zarathustra was taken up to heaven, where Ahura Mazda revealed that he had an opponent, Aura Mainyu, the spirit and promoter of evil. Ahura Mazda charged Zarathustra with the task of inviting all human beings to choose between him (good) and Aura Mainyu (evil).

 

Consequently, Zoroastrianism is a highly ethical religion. Zarathustra taught that humans are free to choose between right and wrong, truth and lie, and light and dark, and that their acts, words, and thoughts would affect their lives after death.

He was thus the first to promote a belief in two heavenly judgments: of the individual soul right after death and of all humankind after a general resurrection. His ideas of heaven, hell, and the resurrection of the body profoundly influenced Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

 

The overriding ethical principle of Zoroastrianism is  “to think good, to speak good, to act good.” This is the divine expectation of humans, and only through goodness will chaos be kept at bay. A person’s goodness determines their ultimate fate after death.

 

Ahura Mazda  is strongly associated with both fire and the Sun. Zoroastrian temples keep a fire burning at all times to represent Ahura Mazda’s eternal power.     Fire is also recognized as powerful purifier and is respected for that reason.     The most holy temple fires take up to a year to consecrate, and many have been burning for years or even centuries.

 

 

      

Eschatology

 

Zoroastrians believe that when a person dies, the soul is divinely judged.

 

The good move on to the “best of existences” while the wicked are punished in torment.

 

As the end of the world approaches, the dead will be resurrected into new bodies.

 

The world will burn but only the wicked will suffer any pain.

 

The fires will purify creation and purse wickedness.

 

Angra_Mainy (God of Darkness) will either be destroyed or made powerless, and everyone will live in paradise except perhaps the extremely wicked, which some sources believe will continue to suffer endlessly.    

 

Goodness and pureness are strongly linked in Zoroastrianism, and pureness features prominently in Zoroastrian ritual.

Anti-Gravity Studies

The Indian Emperor Ashoka started a “Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men“: great Indian scientists who were supposed to catalogue the many sciences. Ashoka kept their work secret because he was afraid that the advanced science catalogued by these men, culled from ancient Indian sources, would be used for the evil purpose of war, which Ashoka was strongly against, having been converted to Buddhism after defeating a rival army in a bloody battle. The “Nine Unknown Men” wrote a total of nine books, presumably one each.

Book number was “The Secrets of Gravitation!” This book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly with “gravity control.” It is presumably still around somewhere, kept in a secret library in India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in North America somewhere). One can certainly understand Ashoka’s reasoning for wanting to keep such knowledge a secret, assuming it exists. Ashoka was also aware devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other “futuristic weapons” that had destroyed the ancient Indian “Rama Empire” several thousand years before.

According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called “Vimanas.” The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we would imagine a flying saucer. It flew with the “speed of the wind” and gave forth a “melodious sound.” There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders (“cigar shaped airships”).

In 1875, the Vaimanika Shastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India. It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to “solar energy” from a free energy source which sounds like “anti-gravity.”

The Vaimanika Shastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas.

Vimanas were kept in a Vimana Griha, a kind of hanger, and were sometimes said to be propelled by a yellowish-white liquid, and sometimes by some sort of mercury compound, though writers seem confused in this matter. It is most likely that the later writers on Vimanas, wrote as observers and from earlier texts, and were understandably confused on the principle of their propulsion. The “yellowishwhite liquid” sounds suspiciously like gasoline, and perhaps Vimanas had a number of different propulsion sources, including combustion engines and even “pulse-jet” engines.

It is interesting to note that when Alexander the Great invaded India more than two thousand years ago, his historians chronicled that at one point they were attacked by “flying, fiery shields” that dove at his army and frightened the cavalry. These “flying saucers” did not use any atomic bombs or beam weapons on Alexander’s army however, perhaps out of benevolence, and Alexander went on to conquer India.

It is interesting to note, that the Nazis developed the first practical pulse-jet engines for their V-8 rocket “buzz bombs.” Hitler and the Nazi staff were exceptionally interested in ancient India and Tibet and sent expeditions to both these places yearly, starting in the 30’s, in order to gather esoteric evidence that they did so, and perhaps it was from these people that the Nazis gained some of their scientific information! According to the Dronaparva, part of the Mahabarata, and the Ramayana, one Vimana described was shaped like a sphere and born along at great speed on a mighty wind generated by mercury.

It moved like a UFO, going up, down, backwards and forwards as the pilot desired. In another Indian source, the Samar, Vimanas were,

“iron machines, well-knit and smooth, with a charge of mercury that shot out of the back in the form of a roaring flame.”

Another work called the Samaranganasutradhara describes how the vehicles were constructed. It is possible that mercury did have something to do with the propulsion, or more possibly, with the guidance system. Curiously, Soviet scientists have discovered what they call “age-old instruments used in navigating cosmic vehicles” in caves in Turkestan and the Gobi Desert.

The “devices” are hemispherical objects of glass or porcelain, ending in a cone with a drop of mercury inside. It is evident that ancient Indians flew around in these vehicles, all over Asia, to Atlantis presumably; and even, apparently, to South America. Writings found at Mohenjodaro in Pakistan (presumed to be one of the “Seven Rishi Cities of the Rama Empire”) and still undeciphered, has also been found in one other place in the world: Easter Island! Writing on Easter Island, called Rongo-Rongo writing, is also undeciphered, and is uncannily similar to the Mohenjodaro script.

In the Mahavira of Bhavabhuti, a Jain text of the eighth century culled from older texts and traditions, we read:

“An aerial chariot, the Pushpaka, conveys many people to the capital of Ayodhya. The sky is full of stupendous flying-machines, dark as night, but picked out by lights with a yellowish glare”

The Vedas, ancient Hindu poems, thought to be the oldest of all the Indian texts, describe Vimanas of various shapes and sizes: the “ahnihotra-vimana” with two engines, the “elephant-vimana” with more engines, and other types named after the kingfisher, ibis and other animals.

Unfortunately, Vimanas, like most scientific discoveries, were ultimately used for war. Atlanteans used their flying machines, “Vailixi,” a similar type of aircraft, to literally try and subjugate the world, it would seem, if Indian texts are to be believed. The Atlanteans, known as “Asvins” in the Indian writings, were apparently even more advanced technologically than the Indians, and certainly of a more war-like temperament.

 

Although no ancient texts on Atlantean Vailixi are known to exist, some information has come down through esoteric, “occult” sources which describe their flying machines. Similar, if not identical to Vimanas, Vailixi were generally “cigar shaped” and had the capability of maneuvering underwater as well as in the atmosphere or even outer space. Other vehicles, like Vimanas, were saucer shaped, and could apparently also be submerged.

According to Eklal Kueshana, author of “The Ultimate Frontier,” in an article he wrote in 1966, Vailixi were first developed in Atlantis 20,000 years ago, and the most common ones are,

“saucershaped of generally trapezoidal cross-section with three hemispherical engine pods on the underside.”

 

“They use a mechanical antigravity device driven by engines developing approximately 80,000 horse power.”

The Ramayana, Mahabarata and other texts speak of the hideous war that took place, some ten or twelve thousand years ago between Atlantis and Rama using weapons of destruction that could not be imagined by readers until the second half of this century. The ancient Mahabharata, one of the sources on Vimanas, goes on to tell the awesome destructiveness of the war:

“…(the weapon was) a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe.”

“ANCIENT VIMANA AIRCRAFT” – a Contribution by John Burrows Sanskrit texts are filled with references to gods who fought battles in the sky using Vimanas equipped with weapons as deadly as any we can deploy in these more enlightened times. For example, there is a passage in the Ramayana which reads:

“The Puspaka car that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will …. that car resembling a bright cloud in the sky.”

 

“.. and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent car at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere.”

In the Mahabharatra, an ancient Indian poem of enormous length, we learn that an individual named Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. The poem is a veritable gold mine of information relating to conflicts between gods who settled their differences apparently using weapons as lethal as the ones we are capable of deploying. Apart from ’blazing missiles’, the poem records the use of other deadly weapons. ’Indra’s Dart’ operated via a circular ’reflector’.

 

When switched on, it produced a ’shaft of light’ which, when focused on any target, immediately ’consumed it with its power’. In one particular exchange, the hero, Krishna, is pursuing his enemy, Salva, in the sky, when Salva’s Vimana, the Saubha is made invisible in some way. Undeterred, Krishna immediately fires off a special weapon:

’I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound’.

Many other terrible weapons are described, quite matter of factly, in the Mahabharata, but the most fearsome of all is the one used against the Vrishis. The narrative records:

“Gurkha flying in his swift and powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishis and Andhakas a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousands suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the Iron Thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.”

It is important to note, that these kinds of records are not isolated. They can be cross-correlated with similar reports in other ancient civilizations.

The after-affects of this Iron Thunderbolt have an ominously recognizable ring. Apparently, those killed by it were so burnt that their corpses were unidentifiable. The survivors fared little etter, as it caused their hair and nails to fall out. Perhaps the most disturbing and challenging, information about these allegedly mythical Vimanas in the ancient records is that there are some matter-of-fact records, describing how to build one. In their way, the instructions are quite precise. In the Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written:

“Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky. The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to earth.”

The Hakatha (Laws of the Babylonians) states quite unambiguously:

“The privilege of operating a flying machine is great. The knowledge of flight is among the most ancient of our inheritances. A gift from ’those from upon high’. We received it from them as a means of saving many lives.”

More fantastic still is the information given in the ancient Chaldean work, The Sifrala, which contains over one hundred pages of technical details on building a flying machine. It contains words which translate as graphite rod, copper coils, crystal indicator, vibrating spheres, stable angles, etc.

Quienes Eran En Realidad “Los Dioses Del Edén ”?

El relato bíblico de Adán y Eva en el Jardín del Edén está basada en hechos reales que sucedieron hace cerca de 200.000 años. Una comparación de los textos antiguos con los últimos avances en la ciencia genética revela detalles sorprendentemente consistentes, que nos permiten finalmente resolver el misterio de los orígenes de la humanidad.

La conclusión sorprendente es que el hombre era un híbrido genético, creado y no manipulado por Dios, sino por la carne y la sangre, caminando, hablando “de los dioses”.

 
[Representación sumeria de ADN la manipulación de la humanidad Anunnaki dioses’ (a través del árbol de la vida), mientras que siendo supervisado por ANU (literalmente traducir como “el padre del cielo )]
Una creencia religiosa en un Dios ha dominado el pensamiento de la sociedad occidental durante más de mil años, dando lugar a considerables dificultades con el concepto de dioses’ de carne y hueso.
Sin embargo, tal idea no presentó ningún problema a la primera civilización conocida en el mundo los sumerios que vivió junto a estos gobernantes divinos y les representa como seres de apariencia humana.
Los escribas sumerios y sus sucesores acadios inscriben tablillas de arcilla con una gran cantidad de información acerca de los dioses. Uno de esos textos, comúnmente conocida con el nombre de su héroe, Atrahasis, describe los antecedentes de la creación del hombre, cuando los propios dioses estaban involucrados en la extracción de minerales minucioso de la Tierra:
Cuando los dioses, como los hombres, llevaban el trabajo y sufrieron el duro trabajo el trabajo de los dioses era grande, el trabajo era pesado, la aflicción era mucho.”
Las condiciones eran tan graves que, después de 40 períodos de penuria, los dioses se rebelaron contra su líder Enlil. Un consejo de los dioses y luego fue llamado, en el que el dios Ea (alias Enki) proporciona la solución:

Mientras que la Diosa del Nacimiento esté presente, dejar que crear un Trabajador Primitivo, le permitió llevar el yugo, le permitió llevar el trabajo de los dioses!”
Los pasajes siguientes del Atrahasis describen lo que parece un lector de hoy en día como un proceso de clonación, en la que la diosa Nin-ti (‘Lady Vida‘) hizo catorce piezas de arcilla’ y impregnado catorce diosas del nacimiento.

Los primeros esclavos componen siete machos y siete hembras, a que se refiere como LU.LU un término que indica una mezcla genética entre el homínido primitivo Homo erectus y los propios dioses. El evento puede fecharse a hace unos 200.000 años, cuando los grandes cerebros Homo sapiens aparecieron de repente en este planeta.

 
El Significado del Edén

El Jardín del Edén bíblico no es un lugar mitológico, sino un lugar real. Para entender lo que sucedió allí, es necesario tener en cuenta que la palabra Edén se deriva del terminosumerio  E.DIN.

Mientras que la primera sílaba E’ significaba Morada’, la segunda sílaba era una abreviatura de DIN.GIR, traducido comúnmente como “los dioses”. Edén o E.DIN era, por tanto, la morada de los dioses’.

Los textos antiguos describen más de una morada de los dioses, con la Tierra  dividida geográficamente entre dos grupos rivales, encabezados por los hermanos Enlil y Enki, respectivamente.

Mientras que los Enkiites habitadas en el continente Africano, los Enlilitas ocuparon Asia y en particular las tierras fértiles de Mesopotamia. Se trata por tanto, con un tanto de Eden occidental y un Edén oriental.

Fue en el Edén occidental, también conocido como el Abzu o inferior Mundial, que Enki y Ninti crearon el esclavo LU.LU, un detalle que se confirma por los hallazgos de los fósiles más antiguos de Homo sapiens en África. Fue en estas tierras ricas en minerales que el hombre se puso a trabajar en el proceso de extracción de minerales peligrosos de las profundidades.

Un texto conocido como El mito de la Piqueta explica lo que pasó después. En el Edén oriental, hermano y rival de Enki, Enlil, fue asediado por sus subordinados, que se quejaron de que los esclavos estaban siendo monopolizadas injustamente en el Mundo Inferior. Enlil, se describe en el siguiente texto como el Señor’, reaccionó en consecuencia

El Señor llamó sucesivamente la AL.ANI, dio sus órdenes. Puso el divisor de la tierra como una corona sobre su cabeza, y la clavó en el Lugar-DondeCarne-Forthgerminado. En el agujero era una cabeza de un hombre ; desde el suelo, las personas estaban rompiendo a través hacia Enlil los ojos los Seres de cabeza negra de la moda firme ..
Esta incursión en los esclavos de cabeza negra también se menciona brevemente en el Antiguo Testamento, Génesis 2: 7-8, donde el hombre en lugar curiosamente ya se ha formado cuando fue puesto’ en el Jardín del Edén por Dios’
 
El Dios Serpiente

El libro del Génesis y historia de Adán y Eva es hoy en día considerado como un mito simbólico, pero varios indicios sugieren que se basó en una cuenta antes de un evento real. La primera pista es que Dios mismo se describe como uno de los dioses.

La segunda pista es la presencia de la serpiente un símbolo bien conocido por los antiguos dioses egipcios, y en particular el propio Enki, el científico genético que había creado al hombre. No es casualidad que el símbolo moderno de la medicina es una serpiente entrelazada alrededor de un personal

Representación sumeria del caduceo, desde donde se originó en realidad. Observe los dos reptiles alados que flanquean el caduceo. Interpretación probable del símbolo: El esfuerzo conjunto de la serpiente dios Enki y Ninmah Diosa Serpiente para modificar genéticamente la humanidad].

La tercera pista se encuentra en el resultado de la intervención de la Serpiente. Adán y Eva le dio vergüenza por estar desnuda, junto con las referencias bíblicas a la adquisición de “conocimiento”, sugiere claramente que eran la primera pareja humana para convertirse en sexualmente consciente.

El Antiguo Testamento sugiere que este cambio fue causado por el consumo de una fruta’. Este es un detalle importante, ya que, de acuerdo con el escenario descrito hasta el momento, el hombre fue creado por los dioses como una criatura híbrida, y los híbridos son casi siempre nace estéril. El cuento de conocimiento sexual que se concedió en el Jardín del Edén, por tanto, lleva un anillo distinto de la verdad.

¿Cómo exactamente, realizó un fruta’ otorgar conocimiento sexual de Adán y Eva? Como se mencionó anteriormente, el dios serpiente fue Enki, el científico genético de los dioses, y el fruto’ con el que tentó a Eva lo tanto, parece simbolizar una intervención genética deliberada por él.

[Sumerian depiction of Enki (left), the Serpent God (notice his half human-half serpent body)]

However, in order to confirm our suspicions, we must first address the questions of motive and opportunity, and we must produce a solid scientific hypothesis on how such a genetic change could have been introduced.

The background provided so far provides all but one of the clues we need to reconstruct the event. The missing piece which solves the puzzle is the mysterious ‘Tree of Life’ in the Garden of Eden.

El Árbol de la Vida
Según el libro del Génesis, Adán y Eva eran libres de comer de un árbol de la vida hasta el momento en que se vuelvan sexualmente consciente. Sólo entonces el Señor Dios dice:

El hombre ha llegado a ser como uno de nosotros, sabiendo el bien y el mal. No se debe permitir que alargue su mano y tome también del árbol de la vida, y coma, y ​​viva para siempre.
¿Por qué el repentino cambio de parecer? ¿Por qué fue que este dios, identificado anteriormente como Enlil, originalmente quería que el hombre a comer del fruto y vivir para siempre, pero luego decidió retirarla de Adán y Eva? ¿Por qué de repente se convierten en necesario para él para expulsarlos y salvaguardar el árbol de la vida con una espada de fuego’?

La respuesta es sorprendentemente simple. Originalmente, la humanidad fue diseñado como una fuerza de trabajo esclavo que podría ser controlado fácilmente, y su esterilidad era un mecanismo de control esencial.

Sin embargo, con la concesión de conocimiento sexual de Adán y Eva, el hombre adquiere los medios para la reproducción independiente. La longevidad que ofrece el árbol de la vida de este modo pasó de un activo a un pasivo, creando un grave riesgo de una explosión de la población fuera de control.

¿Es realmente posible que el consumo de una fruta’ podría haber retrasado el proceso de envejecimiento de Adán y Eva? Los científicos genéticos han descubierto recientemente que el envejecimiento es causado por mutaciones genéticas, y que una de las principales causas de estos errores es el exceso de oxígeno en las células.

Este oxígeno, conocido como “radicales libres” causa daño a las células de la misma manera que causa coches a la oxidación y la mantequilla para volverce rancio.

 
[Representación sumeria de Adán, Eva, la Serpiente (Enki) y el Árbol de la Vida]

Los científicos están investigando la posibilidad de utilizar un cóctel de fármacos para formar una barrera protectora alrededor de las células, y así extender la duración de la vida humana. Una droga tan bien podría estar detrás del simbolismo de la legendaria fruto del Árbol de la Vida.

Los medicamentos anti-envejecimiento, sin embargo, eran sólo un método utilizado por los antiguos dioses para maximizar sus ciclos de vida.

Como se explica en mi libro, Dioses del Nuevo Milenio, el principal factor detrás de la supuesta inmortalidad de los dioses era casi seguro que una herencia genética, como lo demuestra la obsesión de los dioses masculinos con casarse con sus medias hermanas. Tal longevidad genética de hecho se está buscando en el laboratorio hoy en día.

Los científicos de la Geron Corporation en los Estados Unidos están seguros de que pueden prolongar la vida de las células humanas mediante la manipulación de los telómeros en el extremo de los cromosomas. Por otra parte, un genoma que fue reforzada artificialmente de esta manera tendría sentido perfecto para una especie que estaba tratando de superar las barreras de tiempo a los viajes inter-estelares.

 
 Adán y Eva

Según el Antiguo Testamento, Adán vivió 930 años, pero esta increíble duración de la vida palidece hasta la insignificancia en comparación con los reinados de miles de años registrados en las Listas de los Reyes sumerios.

Estos períodos una vez parecían increíbles, pero ahora son científicamente plausibles, basadas en el supuesto de que el hombre fue creado a imagen de hecho de los dioses, de habla genéticamente.

El promedio de vida de hoy de tres años y diez de puntuación es el resultado inevitable de la orgía reproductiva y las mutaciones genéticas que siguió a los acontecimientos en el Edén.

Volvamos ahora a la cuestión crucial de cómo y por qué el dios Enki reprogramar genéticamente la raza humana. Motivo de Enki nos presenta ningún problema, aparte de abolladuras nuestro patrimonio humano orgulloso, porque parece que su don de conocimiento sexual era simplemente un truco rencoroso en su hermano Enlil.

A raíz de la incursión en los campos de esclavos, mencionados anteriormente, podemos suponer con seguridad que Enki era más que un poco molesto con su hermano, y estaba a la espera de una oportunidad adecuada para la venganza.

¿Cómo fue que Enki, el dios serpiente, se presentó en el Jardín del Edén? La respuesta plausible es que la incursión de Enlil en África capturó un número insuficiente de trabajadores varones.

Sin la tecnología de la clonación y las hembras que fueron creados para actuar como madres sustitutas, Enlil era impotente para ampliar su fuerza de trabajo recién adquirido. Era por lo tanto inevitable que tendría que buscar la ayuda de Enki en la creación de un centro médico totalmente independiente.

¿Qué pasó después? El escenario más probable es que Enki llevó dos LU.LUs hembra al Edén oriental y se ofreció a demostrar los procedimientos necesarios por llevar a cabo las primeras operaciones de clonación.

Supongamos que un macho y una hembra de embriones fueron implantados en las dos hembras con Enlil felizmente ignorante de que estos embriones habían sido alterados genéticamente por Enki.

El nacimiento de Adán y Eva por lo tanto habría parecido perfectamente normal, y que habría pasado felizmente sus días de infancia de jugar en el jardín(o más probablemente un ala de seguridad de las instalaciones del hospital).

Entonces, un día, los genes sexuales patearon en (como lo hacen) y los dos hijos púberes de repente se dieron cuenta de que estaban desnudos. Cuando Enlil les vio esconderse de la vergüenza, de inmediato se dio cuenta de que el truco genético que se había desempeñado en él, y el resto es historia la serpiente fue maldecida y la culpa de Adán y Eva fueron expulsados​​.

 
Conclusiones
La ciencia genética moderna ha revolucionado nuestra comprensión del libro del Génesis y otros textos antiguos. La supuesta intervención de los llamados dioses es ahora compatible con un escenario científicamente plausible, que implica dos diferentes Edens y dos creaciones genéticas separadas.
No es de extrañar que los editores de la Biblia eran extremadamente confusa, y su confusión ha manejado los darwinistas una victoria fácil victoria en el debate sobre los orígenes de la humanidad.
Pero, mientras que estos científicos de corriente cazar en vano eslabones perdidos’ de la humanidad, los científicos intervencionistas están involucrados en una búsqueda diferente que ha destrozando implicaciones para el nuevo milenio una búsqueda de “dioses perdidos” de la humanidad.
 

Who Were the Real ‘Gods of Eden’?

The Biblical tale of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is based on actual events which happened nearly 200,000 years ago. A comparison of ancient texts with the latest breakthroughs in genetic science reveals amazingly consistent details, which enable us to finally solve the mystery of mankind’s origins.

The shocking conclusion is that man was a genetic hybrid, created and manipulated not by God, but by flesh-and-blood, walking, talking ‘gods’.

Man, the Slave

[Sumerian depiction of Anunnaki ‘gods’ manipulating mankind’s DNA (via the Tree of Life), while being overseen by ANU (literally translating as ‘the Sky Father’)]

A religious belief in One God has dominated the thinking of western society for more than a thousand years, leading to considerable difficulties with the concept of flesh-and-blood ‘gods’.

However, such an idea did not present any problems to the world’s first known civilisation – the Sumerians – who lived alongside these divine rulers and depicted them as human-like beings.

The Sumerian scribes and their Akkadian successors inscribed clay tablets with a wealth of information about the gods. One such text, commonly known by the name of its hero, Atra-Hasis, describes the background to the creation of man, when the gods themselves were involved in the painstaking extraction of minerals from Earth:

“When the gods, as men, bore the work and suffered the toil – the toil of the gods was great, the work was heavy, the distress was much.”

Conditions were so severe that, after 40 periods of hardship, the gods rebelled against their leader Enlil. A council of the gods was then called, at which the god Ea (alias Enki) provided the solution:

“While the Birth Goddess is present, let her create a Primitive Worker, let him bear the yoke, let him carry the toil of the gods!”

The ensuing passages of the Atra-Hasis describe what appears to a modern-day reader as a cloning process, in which the goddess Nin-ti (‘Lady Life’) made fourteen pieces of ‘clay’ and impregnated fourteen ‘birth goddesses’.

The first slaves comprised seven males and seven females, referred to as LU.LU – a term indicating a genetic mixture between the primitive hominid Homo erectus and the gods themselves. The event can be dated to around 200,000 years ago when the large-brained Homo sapiens suddenly appeared on this planet.

The Meaning of Eden

The Biblical Garden of Eden is not a mythological place but a real location. In order to understand what happened there, it is necessary to appreciate that the word Eden is derived from the Sumerian term E.DIN.

Whilst the first syllable ‘E’ meant ‘Home’, the second syllable was an abbreviation of DIN.GIR, commonly translated as ‘the gods’. Eden or E.DIN was therefore the ‘Abode of the Gods’.

Ancient texts describe more than one abode of the gods, with the Earth being divided geographically between two rival groups, headed by the brothers Enlil and Enki respectively.

Whilst the Enkiites inhabited the African continent, the Enlilites occupied Asia and particularly the fertile lands of Mesopotamia. We are thus dealing with both a western Eden and an eastern Eden.

It was in the western Eden, also known as the Abzu or Lower World, that Enki and Ninti created the LU.LU slave, a detail which is confirmed by finds of the oldest Homo sapiens fossils in Africa. It was in these mineral-rich lands that man was put to work in the dangerous process of extracting minerals from deep underground.

A text known as The Myth of the Pickaxe explains what happened next. In the eastern Eden, Enki’s brother and rival, Enlil, was besieged by his underlings, who complained that the slaves were being unfairly monopolised in the Lower World. Enlil, described in the following text as ‘the Lord’, reacted accordingly:

“The Lord called forth the AL.ANI, gave its orders. He set the earth splitter as a crown upon its head, and drove it into the Place-Where-Flesh-Sprouted-Forth. In the hole was a head of a man; from the ground, people were breaking through towards Enlil. He eyed the Black-headed Ones in steadfast fashion.”

This raid on the Black-headed slaves is also mentioned briefly in the Old Testament, Genesis 2:7-8, where man rather curiously had already been formed when he was ‘put’ in the Garden of Eden by ‘God’.

The Serpent God

The Book of Genesis tale of Adam and Eve is nowadays regarded as a symbolic myth, but several clues suggest that it drew upon an earlier account of a real event. The first clue is that God himself is described as one of the walking talking gods.

The second clue is the presence of the Serpent – a well-known symbol for the ancient Egyptian gods, and particularly Enki himself, the genetic scientist who had created man. It is no coincidence that the modern symbol of medicine is a serpent entwined around a staff [i.e. the caduceus].

[Sumerian depiction of the caduceus, from where it actually originated. Notice the two winged reptilians flanking the caduceus. Probable interpretation of the symbol: The joint effort of The Serpent God Enki and Serpent Goddess Ninmah to genetically engineer mankind.]

The third clue lies in the outcome of the Serpent’s intervention. Adam and Eve’s embarrassment at being naked, along with Biblical references to the acquisition of ‘knowledge’, clearly suggest that they were the first human pair to become sexually aware.

The Old Testament suggests that this change was caused by the consumption of a ‘fruit’. This is a significant detail because, according to the scenario outlined so far, man was created by the gods as a hybrid creature, and hybrids are nearly always born sterile. The tale of sexual knowledge being granted in the Garden of Eden therefore carries a distinct ring of truth.

How exactly did a ‘fruit’ bestow sexual knowledge on Adam and Eve? As mentioned earlier, the Serpent god was Enki, the genetic scientist of the gods, and the ‘fruit’ with which he tempted Eve would thus seem to symbolise a deliberate genetic intervention by him.

[Sumerian depiction of Enki (left), the Serpent God (notice his half human-half serpent body)]

However, in order to confirm our suspicions, we must first address the questions of motive and opportunity, and we must produce a solid scientific hypothesis on how such a genetic change could have been introduced.

The background provided so far provides all but one of the clues we need to reconstruct the event. The missing piece which solves the puzzle is the mysterious ‘Tree of Life’ in the Garden of Eden.

The Tree of Life

According to the Book of Genesis, Adam and Eve were free to eat from a ‘Tree of Life’ up until the moment they became sexually aware. Only then did the Lord God say:

“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

Why the sudden change of mind? Why was it that this god, identified earlier as Enlil, originally wanted man to eat the fruit and live forever, but then decided to withdraw it from Adam and Eve? Why did it suddenly become necessary for him to expel them and safeguard the Tree of Life with a ‘flaming sword’?

The answer is amazingly simple. Originally, mankind was designed as a slave workforce which could be easily controlled, and his sterility was an essential control mechanism.

However, with the granting of sexual knowledge to Adam and Eve, man acquired the means to independent reproduction. The longevity offered by the Tree of Life thus changed from an asset to a liability, creating a serious risk of an out-of-control population explosion.

Is it really possible that consumption of a ‘fruit’ could have delayed Adam and Eve’s ageing process? Genetic scientists have recently discovered that ageing is caused by genetic mutations, and that one of the prime causes of these errors is excess oxygen in the cells.

This oxygen, known as ‘free radicals’ causes damage to our cells in the same way that it causes cars to rust and butter to go rancid.

[Sumerian depiction of Adam, Eve, the Serpent (Enki) and the Tree of Life]

Scientists are now investigating the possibility of using a cocktail of drugs to form a protective barrier around the cells, and so extend the human life span. Such a drug could well lie behind the symbolism of the legendary fruit of the Tree of Life.

Anti-ageing drugs, however, were only one method used by the ancient gods to maximise their life spans.

As explained in my book, Gods of the New Millennium, the primary factor behind the alleged immortality of the gods was almost certainly a genetic inheritance, as evidenced by the male gods’ obsession with marrying their half-sisters. Such a genetic longevity is indeed being sought in the laboratory today.

Scientists at the Geron Corporation in America are confident that they can prolong the life of human cells by manipulating the telomeres on the end of the chromosomes. Furthermore, a genome which was artificially enhanced in this way would make perfect sense for a species which was attempting to overcome the time barriers to inter-stellar travel.

Adam and Eve

According to the Old Testament, Adam lived for 930 years, but this amazing life span pales into insignificance compared to the reigns of thousands of years recorded in the Sumerian Kings Lists.

These periods once seemed incredible, but are now scientifically plausible, based on the assumption that man was indeed created in the gods’ image, genetically-speaking.

Today’s average life span of three score years and ten is the inevitable result of the reproductive orgy and genetic mutations which followed the events in Eden.

Let us now return to the crucial question of how and why the god Enki genetically reprogrammed the human race. Enki’s motive presents us with no problem, other than denting our proud human heritage, for it would seem that his gift of sexual knowledge was simply a spiteful trick on his brother Enlil.

Following the raid on the slave camps, mentioned earlier, we can safely surmise that Enki was more than a little upset with his brother, and was awaiting a suitable opportunity for revenge.

How was it that Enki, the Serpent god, turned up in the Garden of Eden? The plausible answer is that Enlil’s raid into Africa captured an insufficient number of male workers.

Without the cloning technology and the females that were created to act as surrogate mothers, Enlil was powerless to expand his newly acquired labour force. It was thus inevitable that he would have to seek Enki’s help in setting up a fully independent medical centre.

What happened next? The most likely scenario is that Enki brought two female LU.LUs to the eastern Eden and offered to demonstrate the necessary procedures by carrying out the first cloning operations.

Let us assume that one male and one female embryo were implanted into the two females with Enlil blissfully unaware that these embryos had been genetically altered by Enki.

The birth of Adam and Eve would thus have appeared perfectly normal, and they would have happily spent their childhood days playing in ‘the Garden’ (or more likely a secure wing of the hospital facility).

Then one day, the sex genes kicked in (as they do) and the two pubescent children suddenly realised that they were naked. When Enlil saw them hiding with embarrassment, he immediately realised the genetic trick which had been played on him, and the rest is history – the serpent was cursed and the blameless Adam and Eve were expelled.

Conclusions

Modern genetic science has revolutionised our understanding of the Book of Genesis and other ancient texts. The alleged intervention by so-called gods is now supported by a scientifically plausible scenario, which involves two different Edens and two separate genetic creations.

It is hardly surprising that the editors of the Bible were extremely confused, and their confusion has handed the Darwinists a walkover victory in the debate on mankind’s origins.

But, whilst these mainstream scientists hunt in vain for mankind’s ‘missing links’, interventionist scientists are engaged in a different search which has shattering implications for the new millennium – a search for mankind’s ‘missing gods’

The Puzzling Enigma of Ancient Sunken Cities

By 

Terence Newton

Is the truth of human history concealed and buried beneath the oceans? Hundreds of sunken cities adorn the ocean floors of our planet, and dozens of them are believed to be more than 3 millennia old. Although most people are only familiar with the myth of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, sunken ruins of ancient civilizations are as real as the Egyptian pyramids and can offer us many clues about the history of humanity.

Researchers believe that most sunken civilizations were submerged by the end of the last Ice Age about 9,000 to 10,000 years ago, as the massive ice caps covering much of Europe and North America melted. There are also sunken archaeological sites which are believed to have fallen due to seismic activity, such as earthquakes and volcanic eruption.

What makes the following three sites interesting is that they all date back to a time when we have been taught to believe that humans only lived as nomads or in small settlements and were incapable of organizing a large-scale, civilized society. Although some skeptics may continue to argue that structures at these sites were made by nature, many historians and archaeologists are starting to question the mainstream view of ancient human history and continue to seek proof that support their alternative theories that these were man-made, pre-historic civilizations.

Cambay Ruins

Found off the coast of India near Pakistan in the Gulf of Cambay, the Cambay Ruins are one of the most ancient of the world’s sunken cities. They were discovered in 2001 by India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology, led by chief geologist Badrinaryan Badrinaryan. Artifacts such as pottery, human bones and sections of wall were recovered from the site.

Certain pieces have been carbon-dated at nearly 9,500 years old by both the National Geophysical Research Institute in Hyderabad, India, and Geowissenschaftlicte Gemeinschaftsaulguben in Hannover, Germany. If the carbon-dating carried out by these two organizations is accurate, this site predates the oldest known civilization in the region, the Harappan, by more than 5,000 years.

The Cambay Ruins sit at 120 feet (36 meters) underwater and measure five by three miles. Marine archaeologists believe that the buildings at the site stand on enormous foundations, which they discovered using a technique known as sub-bottom profiling.

“The [oceanographers] found that they were dealing with two large blocks of apparently man-made structures.”

“Cities on this scale are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia.”

“Nothing else on the scale of the underwater cities of Cambay is known. The first cities of the historical period are as far away from these cities as we are today from the pyramids of Egypt.”

~ Graham Hancock, author of Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization

Sunken City of Yonaguni

yonaguni3Off the southern coast of Yonaguni, Japan, about 70 feet underwater lies a massive pyramid, often called the “Japanese Atlantis.” The site is dated to be at least 5,000 years old, based on the dates of stalactites found inside underwater caves that sank with the city. The Yonaguni pyramid is believed by some to have been taken by an earthquake about 2,000 years ago.

Some scientists think this is a natural structure resulting from tectonic activity, although many argue that the pyramid is man-made, considering many 90-degree angles, man and animal-like carvings, and what appears to be stairways and a massive arch.

“The largest structure looks like a complicated, monolithic, stepped pyramid that rises from a depth of 25 meters [82 feet].”

“I think it’s very difficult to explain away their origin as being purely natural, because of the vast amount of evidence of man’s influence on the structures.”

~ Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyus in Japan

Many experts believe that the site consists of remnants of an old city that existed above ground when the sea levels were much lower than they are today. One possible culture that inhabited this site is the Jomon, Japanese inhabitants, who existed from around 12,000 BC to around 300 BC and are believed to be the first culture on Earth to develop pottery. Some believe that the site is what remains of Mu, a fabled Pacific civilization rumored to have vanished beneath the waves.

sunken-city-cubaCabo de San Antonio

In the deep waters of Cabo de San Antonio off the west coast of Cuba rests one of the most fascinating of the ancient sunken cities. The site was discovered by the Russian/Canadian oceanographer Paulina Zelitsky and the Advanced Digital Communications exploration company when their expedition in the area brought them upon unusual formations of smooth blocks, crests, and geometric shapes.

Because the site is underneath 1,900 to 2,500 feet of water (about a half mile, or 600-750 meters), it has been difficult to truly explore the area. There are no real images of the sunken city of Cabo de San Antonio, although data collected using sonar scans and video reveals structures that are not likely to form naturally.

“These are extremely peculiar structures, and they have captured our imagination.”

“If I had to explain this geologically, I would have a hard time.”

~ Geologist Manuel Iturralde, director of research at Cuba’s Natural History Museum

A theory exists that this sunken metropolis is old enough to have existed during the Ice Age, and it is believed that the city sank anywhere from 15,000 to 50,000 years ago. Ancient stories of the Maya and native Yucatecos passed through the generations tell of an island inhabited by their ancestors that vanished beneath the waves. After continued research, Zelitsky has identified that the site measures about 20 square kilometers (a size of a modern city). She has collected many samples that prove the site is man-made and was at one time above sea level.

“Samples that we recovered from the ocean bottom have justified our structures that we call megalithic structures. The samples are granite stone, completely polished, with some incrustations of fossils. Fossils of organic creatures that normally live on the surface, not on the ocean bottom.”

“The stone we recovered from ocean bottom is very polished granite. All of the peninsula of northwest part of Cuba, all of this peninsula is limestone, very fractured limestone. So, geologically, it (megalithic granite structures) is totally foreign to Cuba. But it’s also not known in Yucatan because Yucatan is also limestone, not granite. Granite is found only in the center of Mexico.”

~ Paulina Zelitsky, Ocean Engineer, Advanced Digital Communications

Conclusion

Just how many ruins of ancient civilizations are buried under the vast ocean waters of the Earth? Underwater findings such as these three sites give us a new perspective on the history of the human race, and more questions than answers.

PUERTO RICO, LABORATORIO DE EEUU 2

 

wpid-wp-1413224237234.jpeg

 

 

Este año se celebró el 116 ° aniversario de la invasión de la isla de Puerto Rico por parte de  las fuerzas armadas de Estados Unidos. Desde la época de Cristóbal Colón, Puerto Rico se ha mantenido bajo el dominio extranjero,primero de  España y luego de los EE.UU. Puerto Rico es una de las últimas colonias en el mundo de hoy.

Gobernantes de Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico,  mantienen la ficción de que los resultados sobre el estatuto político de la isla es un pacto bilateral de 1952 llamado Estado Libre Asociado (ELA, Estado Libre Asociado, ya sé  no hace sentido) entre dos gobiernos soberanos. Aún así, el gobierno de Estados Unidos se reserva el control total y unilateral sobre la isla. El Congreso de Estados Unidos tiene un poder de veto absoluto sobre la legislación local. La única forma legal de  moneda es el dólar estadounidense. Todos los asuntos de defensa se ​​difieren a los militares de EE.UU., y todos los varones elegibles pueden enlistarse. Aunque la isla tiene una Guardia Nacional, que al igual que las guardias nacionales de los cincuenta estados de los EE.UU., está bajo la jurisdicción del Pentágono. La Aplicación de la ley Federal es manejado por el FBI. Los tribunales federales llevan a cabo sus funciones estrictamente en el idioma Inglés, a pesar del hecho de que aproximadamente el 80 por ciento de la población habla sólo español. En lo que es un tema tremendamente polémico, las actuales lenguas oficiales del país son el español y el Inglés.

Los puertorriqueños han sido ciudadanos estadounidenses desde que el Congreso de Estados Unidos impuso la ciudadanía en todos los residentes de la isla en 1917 bajo la Ley Jones, durante su residencia en cualquier estado de la unión, los puertorriqueños pueden ejercer los mismos derechos que cualquier otro ciudadano. Pero los que viven en la isla no pueden votar en las elecciones presidenciales o para elegir senadores o representantes al Congreso. Además, el nivel de los fondos federales asignados a la isla es a menudo inferior a la de cualquier Estado en circunstancias similares. Claramente, la relación de Puerto Rico y EE.UU. es la de una colonia

 

. Pero ya que la palabra colonia” tiene una connotación negativa, los documentos del gobierno de Estados Unidos se refieren a la isla como el Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico.”

En el último post Puerto Rico EE.UU. LABMostré que parte de esta gran relación entre los dos países, ahora vamos a ver qué más podemos excavar:

Las intenciones originales que Estados Unidos tuvo con la isla eran lo que ellos llamaron “Proyecto 2020“. Sorprendentemente, hay muy poca documentación acerca de esto, pero es un plan que ellos han tenido para la isla desde el 1900! Consistía en convertir la isla en una instalación militar de gran tamaño. Aunque esto nunca se cumple, el 13% de la tierra en la isla 35 x 100 millas está ocupado por bases militares estadounidenses

 wpid-wp-1413724652200.jpeg

El Congreso de Estados Unidos se reserva la facultad de legislar para Puerto Rico * sin * el consentimiento de su gente. Los puertorriqueños en la isla no se les permite votar por el Presidente o sus representantes en el Congreso.

En 1917, la Ley Jones * obligó ciudadanía ** en el pueblo puertorriqueño, junto con el proyecto y la Primera Guerra Mundial los puertorriqueños se han visto obligados a servir en todas las guerras de Estados Unidos posteriores, sin embargo, no se les permite votar?
Y hablando sobre el tema de la guerra, mientras que Puerto Rico tiene soportar el racismo, he aquí algunos hechos interesantes
El 21 de marzo de 1915, los primeros disparos por parte de Estados Unidos en la Primera Guerra Mundial fueron disparados por el Regimiento de Puerto Rico de Infantería de El Castillo del Morro en un barco alemán en Bahía de San Juan.

La Cámara de Representantes y el Senado han aprobado proyectos de ley para otorgar a las Regimiento 65 de Infantería Borinqueneers”, la Medalla de Oro del Congreso.
Este es un honor que se encuentra debidamente merecía. Estos hombres pasaron por dificultades increíbles con ningún reconocimiento o apreciación de sus esfuerzos , dijo Gómez
 wpid-wp-1413258226753.jpeg

Al igual que sus compañeros soldados de color, los aviadores de Tuskegee y el código de idioma navajo, los Borinqueneers eran miembros de un regimiento de infantería segregado, establecido en 1899 con los miembros que prestan servicio en la Primera Guerra Mundial y la Segunda Guerra Mundial, así como en Corea. El regimiento de infantería fue disuelto en 1959.

Actualmente, los Borinqueneers es la única unidad de infantería militar segregada no haber sido galardonado con la Medalla de Oro del Congreso.

Los puertorriqueños que forman las filas de la 65 de Infantería galante en los campos de batalla de Corea está escribiendo un brillante historial de logros en la batalla y me siento orgulloso de hecho de tenerlos en este comando. Ojalá que podamos tener muchos más como ellos.

parece probable, en vista de la evidencia y el patrón consistente de declaraciones de un muy
amplia gama de personas y organizaciones, incluidas fuentes estadounidenses, que su nombre es
De hecho ECHELON, aunque esto es un detalle relativamente menor,

B. Considerando que ya puede haber duda de que la finalidad del sistema es la interceptación, en el

aunque el análisis realizado en el informe ha puesto de manifiesto que la capacidad técnica de
el sistema probablemente no son casi tan extensa como algunos sectores de los medios de comunicación tuvieron
asumido,

El reubicable Durante el radar Horizon (ROTHR) instalaciones en Vieques
wpid-wp-1413224296461.png

La estación de radar iba a ser colocado en las tierras del oeste, donde la marina en uno de sus pocos actos de conservación y la estimulación de la economía Vieques había plantado un bosque de árboles de caoba. La instalación incluiría 34 transmiten torres con una altura media de unos 100 pies.

ROTHR 
 wpid-wp-1413257825599.jpeg

Manifestantes de Vieques protestaron las audiencias públicas sobre la instalación ROTHR que tuvo lugar en la Alcaldía. Ellos expresaron su preocupación por los riesgos para la salud de las radiaciones electromagnéticas, el hecho de que el complejo ROTHR consumiría un 50% del suministro eléctrico de la Municipalidad de Vieques y el uso militar de las tierras, lo que los ciudadanos esperan algún día ser usado para el desarrollo ecológicamente sensibles .

El proyecto ROTHR sirvió para unir a la comunidad con incluso antiguos partidarios acérrimos de la marina uniéndose a los manifestantes contra la marina al expresar su oposición a la instalación.

En un desarrollo sorprendente, en julio de 1994, el Consejo de Administración de la Conservación y Vieques Historical Trust (VCHT) anunció su oposición unánime a la estación ROTHR de la marina. El VCHT fue el proyecto favorito de una serie de ricos residentes estacionales de América del Norte, y que pretendía centrarse en preservar el medio ambiente de Vieques, en particular su única bahía bioluminiscente, pero con los años se había alienado a sí mismo de los viequenses simpático debido a su negativa a oponerse los ejercicios de bombardeo naval. El VCHT sostuvo que hablar en contra de los bombardeos sería un ejercicio de la política y su deseo de participar en la preservación del medio ambiente, no la controversia política.

En la mayoría de los miembros VCHT realidad, que a menudo eran miembros de la marina de guerra de la Liga, así, la apoyaba fuertemente la presencia militar en Vieques y no estaban dispuestos a comprometer sus lealtades, incluso en la cara de este aparente conflicto de intereses. Por lo tanto, los activistas se sorprendieron cuando el VCHT emitió un enérgico comunicado declarando su oposición inequívoca a la estación de radar, que además de representar un deterioro visual en una de las más hermosas islas vírgenes del Caribey una potencial amenaza para la salud a residentes de la isla, es casi seguro que afectará negativamente el medio ambiente de la isla, en particular, la bahía bioluminiscente. Por primera vez, los intereses de los activistas contra la marina de guerra y las de una organización norteamericana de base local habían convergido .

A pesar de la controversia el ROTHR se puso en funcionamiento y permanece en la propiedad de propiedad de la marina de guerra. Los árboles de caoba fueron talados para dar paso a la construcción.

Gente y Eventos: Los Juicios de la píldora Puerto Rico
wpid-wp-1413224454263.jpeg

Tras el éxito de los ensayos preliminares de Boston para la píldora en 1954 y 1955, John Rock y Gregory Pincus estaban seguros de que habían apuntado a un anticonceptivo oral. Pero sin pruebas en humanos a gran escala, la droga nunca recibiría la necesaria aprobación de la FDA para llevar el medicamento al mercado. Dada la fuerte oposición legal, cultural y religiosa de control de la natalidad en Estados Unidos en la década de 1950, las perspectivas para este próximo paso crucial aparecieron tenue.

Una ubicación perfecta
En el verano de 1955, Gregory Pincus visitó Puerto Rico, y descubrió que sería el lugar perfecto para los ensayos en humanos. La isla, un territorio de Estados Unidos, fue una de las zonas más densamente pobladas del mundo, y los funcionarios de control de la natalidad apoyado como una forma de control de la población con la esperanza de que iba a frenar la pobreza endémica de Puerto Rico. No había leyes de control anti-natalidad en los libros, y Pincus quedó impresionado con la amplia red de clínicas de control de natalidad que ya existen en la isla. Había 67 consultorios que dispensan los métodos existentes de control de la natalidad y un gran grupo de mujeres utilizan sus servicios.

100% eficaz
Dr. Edris ArrozWray, un miembro del cuerpo docente de la Escuela de Medicina de Puerto Rico y director médico de la Asociación de Planificación Familiar de Puerto Rico, fue el encargado de los ensayos. Después de un año de pruebas, el Dr. RiceWray informó la buena nueva a Pincus. La píldora fue 100% efectiva cuando se toma correctamente. También le informó de que el 17% de las mujeres del estudio se quejaron de náuseas, mareos, dolores de cabeza, dolor de estómago y vómitos. Tan serio y sostenido eran las reacciones que RiceWray dijo a Pincus que una dosis de 10 miligramos de enovid causó “demasiadas reacciones secundarias en general aceptable.”

Descartando Efectos Secundarios
Rock and Pincus despedidos rápidamente conclusiones de RiceWray. Sus pacientes en Boston habían sufrido muchas menos reacciones negativas, y creían muchas de las quejas eran psicosomática. Los hombres también sienten que los problemas tales como hinchazón y náuseas fueron de menor importancia en comparación con los beneficios de la anticoncepción de la droga. Aunque tres mujeres murieron durante su participación en los ensayos, se llevó a cabo ninguna investigación para ver si la píldora había causado muertes de las jóvenes. Confiados en la seguridad de la píldora, Pincus y Rock no tomaron ninguna medida para evaluar la causa raíz de los efectos secundarios.

El engaño y la explotación?
En años posteriores, el equipo de Pincus sería acusado de engaño, el colonialismo y la explotación de las mujeres pobres de color. Las mujeres sólo se les había dicho que estaban tomando un medicamento que impedía el embarazo, no es que se trataba de un ensayo clínico, que la píldora era experimental o de que existía la posibilidad de efectos secundarios potencialmente peligrosos. Pincus y Rock, sin embargo, creían que estaban siguiendo las normas éticas apropiadas de la época. En la década de 1950, la investigación en seres humanos era mucho menos regulado que es hoy. Normas de consentimiento informado fueron mínimas y sólo se requiere la mayor cantidad de pruebas básicas de toxicidad para los ensayos en humanos.

Preguntas Linger
A día de hoy, se plantean interrogantes sobre si Pincus y Rock por alto los efectos secundarios graves de la alta dosis de la píldora original durante los ensayos, en su afán de lograr una píldora efectiva al mercado. La dosis de la píldora, ya se ha reducido drásticamente y la incidencia de efectos secundarios graves se ha reducido considerablemente. Sin embargo, los ensayos de la píldora Puerto Rico siguen siendo un episodio controvertido en la historia del desarrollo de la píldora.

PUERTO RICO “US LAB 2”

image

This year marked the 116th anniversary of the U.S. armed forces’ invasion of the island of Puerto Rico. Since the time of Christopher Columbus, Puerto Rico has remained under direct foreign domination–first under Spain and then under the U.S. Puerto Rico is one of the last colonies in the world today.

U.S. and Puerto Rican rulers maintain the fiction that the island’s political status results from a 1952 bilateral pact called the Estado Libre Asociado (ELA, Free Associated State, I know it makes no sense) between two sovereign governments. Still, the U.S. government reserves complete and unilateral control over the island. The U.S. Congress holds an absolute veto power over local legislation. The only legal form of currency is the U.S. dollar. All defense matters are deferred to the U.S. military, and all eligible males can be drafted. Although the island has a National Guard, it, like the National Guards of the fifty states of the U.S., falls under the jurisdiction of the Pentagon. Federal law enforcement is handled by the FBI. The federal courts carry out their functions strictly in the English language, despite the fact that roughly 80 percent of the population speaks only Spanish. In what is a hotly contested issue, the current official languages of the country are Spanish and English.

Puerto Ricans have been American citizens since the U.S. Congress imposed citizenship on all island residents in 1917. While residing in any state of the union, Puerto Ricans can exercise the same rights as any other citizen. But those living on the island are not allowed to vote in presidential elections or to elect senators or representatives to Congress. Additionally, the level of federal funds allocated to the island is frequently below that of any state in similar circumstances. Clearly, the relationship of Puerto Rico to the U.S. is that of a colony to its overlord. But since the word “colony” carries negative connotations, U.S. government documents refer to the island as the “Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.”

In the last post Puerto Rico “US LAB” I showed you part of this great relation between the two countries, now let see what else we can dig out:

The original intentions that the United States had with the island were what they called “Project 2020”. Amazingly, there is very little documentation about this, but it is a plan that they have had for the island since the early 1900’s! It consisted of converting the island into a large military installation. Although this was never fulfill, 13% of the land on the 35 x 100 mile island is occupied by U.S. military bases.

image

The U.S. Congress retains power to legislate for Puerto Rico *without* the consent of its people. Puerto Ricans on the island are not permitted to vote for the President or their congressional representatives.

– In 1917, the Jones Act *forced citizenship** on the Puerto Rican people, along with the draft and World War I. Puerto Ricans have been forced to serve in all subsequent U.S. wars, yet they are not allowed to vote?
And talking on the subject of war, while Puerto Rican have endure racism, here are some interesting facts
On March 21, 1915, the first shots by the United States in World War I were fired by the Puerto Rico Regiment of Infantry from El Morro Castle at a German ship in San Juan Bay.

The House of Representatives and the Senate have passed bills that will grant the 65th Infantry Regiment “Borinqueneers,” the Congressional Gold Medal.
This is an honor that is duly deserved. These men went through incredible hardships with no recognition or appreciation of their efforts,” Gomez said.
image

Much like their fellow soldiers of color, the Tuskegee Airmen and the Navajo Code Talkers, the Borinqueneers were members of a segregated infantry regiment, established in 1899 with members serving in World War I and World War II as well as in Korea. The infantry regiment was disbanded in 1959.

Currently, the Borinqueneers is the only segregated military infantry unit to have not been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.

The Puerto Ricans forming the ranks of the gallant 65th Infantry on the battlefields of Korea … are writing a brilliant record of achievement in battle and I am proud indeed to have them in this command. I wish that we might have many more like them.

ECHELON
image

The existence of a global system for intercepting private and commercial communications (the
ECHELON interception system)

A. whereas the existence of a global system for intercepting communications, operating by
means of cooperation proportionate to their capabilities among the USA, the UK, Canada,
Australia and New Zealand under the UKUSA Agreement, is no longer in doubt; whereas
it seems likely, in view of the evidence and the consistent pattern of statements from a very
wide range of individuals and organizations, including American sources, that its name is
in fact ECHELON, although this is a relatively minor detail,

B. whereas there can now be no doubt that the purpose of the system is to intercept, at the
very least, private and commercial communications, and not military communications,
although the analysis carried out in the report has revealed that the technical capabilities of
the system are probably not nearly as extensive as some sections of the media had
assumed,

C. whereas, therefore, it is surprising, not to say worrying, that many senior Community
figures, including European Commissioners, who gave evidence to the Temporary
Committee claimed to be unaware of this phenomenon.

The Relocatable Over the Horizon Radar (ROTHR) facility on Vieques
image

The radar station was to be placed in the western lands where the navy in one of its few acts of conservation and stimulation of the Vieques economy had planted a grove of mahogany trees. The facility would include 34 transmitting towers with an average height of about 100 feet.

ROTHR
image

Vieques protesters picketed the public hearings on the ROTHR facility that took place at the Alcaldía. They expressed concerns about the health risks of electromagnetic radiation, the fact that the ROTHR complex would consume 50% of the electricity supply of the Municipality of Vieques and the military use of lands, which the citizens hoped would some day be used for ecologically sensitive development.

The ROTHR project served to unite the community with even former staunch supporters of the navy joining in with anti navy protesters in voicing their opposition to the installation.

“In a startling development, in July 1994, the board of Directors of the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust (VCHT) announced their unanimous opposition to the navy’s ROTHR station. The VCHT was the pet project of a number of wealthy North American seasonal residents, and it claimed to focus on preserving Vieques’ environment, particularly its unique bioluminescent bay, but over the years it had alienated itself from sympathetic Viequenses because of its refusal to oppose the naval bombing exercises. The VCHT maintained that speaking out against the bombing would be an exercise in politics and that it wished to engage in environmental preservation, not political controversy.

“In reality most VCHT members, who were often Navy League members as well, were strongly supportive of the military presence on Vieques and were not willing to compromise their loyalties, even in the face of this apparent conflict of interest. Thus, activists were surprised when the VCHT issued a strongly worded statement declaring its unequivocal opposition to the radar station, which aside from representing a visual blight on ‘one of the loveliest unspoiled islands of the Caribbean’ and a potential health threat to island residents, would almost certainly adversely affect the island’s environment, in particular the bioluminescent bay. For the first time, the interests of anti navy activists and those of a locally based North American organization had converged.”

Despite the controversy the ROTHR was put into operation and remains on navy-owned property. The mahogany trees were cleared to make way for the construction.

People and Events: The Puerto Rico Pill Trials
image

After the success of the preliminary Boston trials for the Pill in 1954 and 1955, John Rock and Gregory Pincus were confident they had honed in on an oral contraceptive. But without large-scale human trials, the drug would never receive the FDA approval necessary to bring the drug to market. Given the strong legal, cultural and religious opposition to birth control in America in the 1950s, the prospects for this crucial next step appeared dim.

A Perfect Location
In the summer of 1955, Gregory Pincus visited Puerto Rico, and discovered it would be the perfect location for the human trials. The island, a U.S. territory, was one of the most densely populated areas in the world, and officials supported birth control as a form of population control in the hopes that it would stem Puerto Rico’s endemic poverty. There were no anti-birth control laws on the books, and Pincus was impressed with the extensive network of birth control clinics already in place on the island. There were 67 clinics dispensing existing methods of birth control and a large group of women used their services.

Poor, Uneducated Women
For Pincus, the island offered a pool of motivated candidates, and a stationary population that could be easily monitored over the course of the trials. Pincus also knew that if he could demonstrate that the poor, uneducated, women of Puerto Rico could follow the Pill regimen, then women anywhere in the world could too. Pincus hoped that by showing Puerto Rican women could successfully use oral contraceptives, he could quiet critics’ concerns that oral contraceptives would be too “complicated” for women in developing nations and American inner cities to use.

Rio Piedras
The base for the first trial was a clinic at Rio Piedras, a brand new housing project complete with running water and sunny balconies just outside of San Juan. The worst slum on the island, El Fangito (“the little mud hole”), had been razed to build clean, white seven-story buildings, and the new residents were eager to continue to improve their standard of living. Many American companies were building factories on the island, and plenty of factory jobs were available for local women.

Many Trial Subjects
Puerto Rico Trials The Rio Piedras trials quickly got off the ground in April 1956. In no time, the trial was filled to capacity, and they expanded the trials to additional locations on the island. Although Puerto Rico was a predominantly Catholic island, people were far more concerned with the struggles of daily life than Church dogma, and did not follow Rome on matters of birth control. At the time, most women relied on sterilization or abortion to limit their family size, and the Pill was a welcome alternative.

Initial Dosages
The pharmaceutical company G.D. Searle provided the pills for the trial. Rock selected a high dose of Enovid, the company’s brand name for their synthetic oral progesterone, to ensure that no pregnancies would occur while test subjects were on the drug. Later, after discovering Enovid worked better with small amounts of synthetic estrogen, that active ingredient was added to the Pill as well.
image

100% Effective
Dr. Edris Rice-Wray, a faculty member of the Puerto Rico Medical School and medical director of the Puerto Rico Family Planning Association, was in charge of the trials. After a year of tests, Dr. Rice-Wray reported good news to Pincus. The Pill was 100% effective when taken properly. She also informed him that 17% of the women in the study complained of nausea, dizziness, headaches, stomach pain and vomiting. So serious and sustained were the reactions that Rice-Wray told Pincus that a 10-milligram dose of Enovid caused “too many side reactions to be generally acceptable.”

Dismissing Side Effects
Rock and Pincus quickly dismissed Rice-Wray’s conclusions. Their patients in Boston had experienced far fewer negative reactions, and they believed many of the complaints were psychosomatic. The men also felt that problems such as bloating and nausea were minor compared to the contraceptive benefits of the drug. Although three women died while participating in the trials, no investigation was conducted to see if the Pill had caused the young women’s deaths. Confident in the safety of the Pill, Pincus and Rock took no action to assess the root cause of the side effects.

Deceit and Exploitation?
In later years, Pincus’s team would be accused of deceit, colonialism and the exploitation of poor women of color. The women had only been told that they were taking a drug that prevented pregnancy, not that this was a clinical trial, that the Pill was experimental or that there was a chance of potentially dangerous side effects. Pincus and Rock, however, believed they were following the appropriate ethical standards of the time. In the 1950s, research involving human subjects was much less regulated than it is today. Informed consent standards were minimal and only the most basic toxicity tests were required for human trials.

Questions Linger
To this day, questions linger over whether Pincus and Rock overlooked serious side effects from the original high dosage Pill during trials, in their rush to bring an effective pill to market. The dosage of the Pill has since been dramatically lowered and the incidence of serious side effects has been greatly reduced. Still, the Puerto Rico pill trials remain a controversial episode in the history of the Pill’s development.

Nuclear Bomb In Vieques?

In 1995 NOTICENTRO 4 (channel 4 news) DENOUNCED IN AN EXCLUSIVE REPORT THE COMPLICATED SITUATION LIVED BY THE PEOPLE OF VIEQUES DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF THE NAVY AND THE MILITARY MANEUVERS ON THE ISLAND. DURING THE SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT, “RED ALERT”, IT WAS ALSO DENOUNCED THAT AN INCIDENT WITH A NUCLEAR BOMB HAD OCCURRED IN VIEQUES DURING THE MID 60’S.

THE HIGH COMMAND OF THE NAVY IN PUERTO RICO CATEGORICALLY DENIED IN 1995 THAT SUCH AN INCIDENT EVER OCCURRED AND COMMENCED A CAMPAIGN TO SUPPRESS AND HARRASS THIS TV STATION AND OUR REPORTER. NOW, AFTER FIVE YEARS OF INVESTIGATIONS, NOTICENTRO HAS FOUND NEW EVIDENCE THAT CONFIRMS THE OCCURRENCE OF THE NUCLEAR INCIDENT AND ITS COVER-UP.
