Coral Castle: A contemporary mystery


I have just discovered this Megalithic mystery building in Florida, and it is not 3.000 years old but was built in the 1920’s!

The building is Coral Castle, and was the home of Edward Leedskalnin, a Latvian immigrant living in the US. He built this “castle” to serve as his home between 1920-1940, working completely alone. Not only that, but in that period he moved it 10 miles further than its original location, where he completed it and it still stands, being a museum now.

Now get this: He worked only on nights, completely alone and with a lantern for light. The whole structure is made from more than a 1000 tons of coral rock, while individual pieces weigh up to 35 tons.
Again: He worked alone. No cranes, bulldozers, nothing. When he transported it to Homestead he used a borrowed truck, but no crane to load up the monoliths.
The question is obvious: How the hell did he do it?

The theories are many, as expected. Look them up in this article. The highlights:

One story says that some curious neighbors did see how Leedskalnin moved the stones. They say he placed his hands on the stone to be lifted... and sang. Somehow this levitated the great rocks…

…Alternative science investigators suggest that Leedskalnin somehow learned the secret of the 'world grid,' an invisible pattern of energy lines surrounding the Earth which concentrates points of telluric power where they intersect…

And more… and did anyone ask him how he did it? Well, yes:

"I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids. I have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons."


Imagine the implications, blah blah blah,  but the same thing always nags at me: Why did he not reveal his secret?

Why does someone who holds a secret that can change the course of mankind, choose not to reveal? Ego? Military implications? Misanthropy?
Or is the secret exactly that? A secret that is not his to share

And share he did not. He took it to his grave in 1951.

Oh the things that are hidden, the things we have to learn…

The Invasion has happened

I read the other day a post by Charlie Stross, and he was reflecting on some thoughts I have had for a long time, but he uses another way of looking at it, and it got me thinking further and, well you know how this goes.
The post is titled "Invaders from Mars" and in it Stross describes how we've effectively been invaded and governed by non-human, aggressive artificial intelligences that don't give a shit about us and only see us as "meat". These entities are called Multinational Corporations. 
Here's a piece:

Corporations do not share our priorities. They are hive organisms constructed out of teeming workers who join or leave the collective: those who participate within it subordinate their goals to that of the collective, which pursues the three corporate objectives of growth, profitability, and pain avoidance. (The sources of pain a corporate organism seeks to avoid are lawsuits, prosecution, and a drop in shareholder value.)
Corporations have a mean life expectancy of around 30 years, but are potentially immortal; they live only in the present, having little regard for past or (thanks to short term accounting regulations) the deep future: and they generally exhibit a sociopathic lack of empathy.
We are now living in a global state that has been structured for the benefit of non-human entities with non-human goals. They have enormous media reach, which they use to distract attention from threats to their own survival. They also have an enormous ability to support litigation against public participation, except in the very limited circumstances where such action is forbidden. Individual atomized humans are thus either co-opted by these entities (you can live very nicely as a CEO or a politician, as long as you don't bite the feeding hand) or steamrollered if they try to resist.
In short, we are living in the aftermath of an alien invasion.
Stross uses the term "whimsical" to describe his musings, but to me it's anything but.
I think it's deadly serious.
Besides the fact that these Entities, as they should be called from now on, govern our fates and are poised to continue to do so, think about this:
These entities are the ideal vehicle for anyone - or anything- determined to gain control of major facets of society, government and the future: Secret Societies, Sufis, Aliens, you name it..
Does Ultimate Power come accidentally through business practices, or is it a thought-out, planned and well executed project that has nothing to do with the obvious front? As usual, I have no answers. I can only ask the questions.
Multinational Corporations could be the re-incarnation of of old-school World Control Conspiracies, from the Illuminati and the Rosicrucians to the Order of Dagon and the Fire and Ice Coven.
Hell, they probably are..
Would we know it? And, if we did, would it make any difference?

Wikileaks UFO Conspiracy Theory

imageI am trying to keep my conspiratorial instinct at bay, lest I be climbing roofs screaming Bloody Murder (and Conspiracy), but events cannot seem to let me be.

In the wake of the Wikileaks debacle, of which I am sure you are all aware of, several key points of the whole affair point to a more sinister scenario..

Point number one: Julian Assange gave an interview to the Guardian in the UK hinting on unreleased documents concerning UFOs. A few days later he was arrested on false charges of rape, quickly exposed by Swedish bloggers.
You see where I am getting at: This guy has been publishing on the Net thousands of documents concerning various acts of war and related top-secret stuff, and just when he mentions UFOs and aliens, he is stopped and his site shut down. Someone had an ex foreign-office extreme feminist accuse him of rape, ensuring that an international search warrant was issued. His storage providers ceased providing, and a whole shutdown operation appeared to be in effect.

Just when he mentioned the UFO documents, he was not to be tolerated anymore, or so it seems. (Random thought: Was the NASA announcement a preemptive strike in case something went wrong?)

Point number two: The Encrypted file. This is where it gets good.
In the recent posting of Afghan War files, one file was bigger than all the rest of them put together. The file is 1.4 Gigabytes and encrypted with the AES256 encryption. It is called Insurance.
See where I am getting at? If you feared being thrown in prison or murdered and you had documents that could bring the whole thing down what would you call it? Insurance. A 256 bit encryption needs years to be cracked, so the insurance should have an insurance holder, namely the guy who knows the key. Or guys. Maybe that explains why the file was distributed along with the other files and through the anonymous peer-to-peer BitTorrent network. So the file reached the right people, independently of what happened to the Wikileaks site.

So is this file the Holy Grail of all Conspiracy Theories? The truth about UFOs and alien contact, the full disclosure we’ve been waiting for?
Truth is I don’t know. It seems plausible, but a big part is also wishful thinking.
Several internet sites have reported that the UFO documents only had “off-hand remarks about UFOs”.
And of course they could be wrong.

For those thinking “why did he not release them anyway”, I have this: It’s ok to publish anything that sheds light on the darkest corners of politics and the world. It’s ok to expose people and Governments and companies if it is the truth.

But.. If you knew that one set of documents could potentially bring everything down, destroy mindsets, ruin economies and bring the world to a standstill…

Then would you go public? 
I for one don’t know…

Signs of Invasion (or Plain ol’ Crap?)


The picture above is from Google Sky map, at coordinates 19 25 12 -89 46 03
The guy who spotted them, SETI Astrophysicist Craig Kasnov, says there are

3 very large, very fast moving objects.  The length of the "flying saucers" is in the range of tens of kilometers.  Landing, according to calculations of scientists, should be in mid-December 2012. Date coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar.

How convenient. Of course their arrival would coincide with the end of the Mayan Calendar. Doesn’t everything?
Check all three at coordinates :

19 25 12 -89 46 03 - the first large object
16 19 35 -88 43 10 - a cylindrical object
02 26 39 -89 43 13 - the object as a circle

Now this could be anything, from compression or stitching artifacts to space rubble, but then again, I am no expert.
Plus I love invasion scenarios.
Too bad this seems to be a little far fetched, as this Kasnov guy seems to have been involved with SETI, but no info can be found on him online, not to mention the usual conspiracy theory about NASA covering up everything from UFO’s to Nibiru.

Clearly, in a conspiracy mindset one cannot exclude much, as all possibilities are covered and all angles closed. But, if an organization or a country can suppress evidence of an Alien Invasion or a UFO crash, can they not delete or reconstruct a few lousy tiles on Star Map?

Still, I can’t help wondering: What if this is true?

Creature at night Hoax (prolly)


Now this is one creepy picture. Supposedly it was taken by a trail cam used by a hunter somewhere in Louisiana. The image is spooky as hell and if it is a hoax, it is a great job. The poster’s mistake was that he posted a second picture of the same spot “just for reference”


And the problems become visible: The little tree on the right is exactly the same, although the images are supposedly 9 days apart, and the texture of the creature is exactly the same as the deer’s. Nothing conclusive but it sure points to a certain direction.

Great Photoshop job, but hoaxes are abundant nowadays, and most of the investigative work is done at the comfort of your own home, since debunking is best done in front of a computer..

Even creepier than the photo: The comments at the thread over in Archery Talk where the image was posted. One guy answers the question “what is that thing” with “Prolly a liberal ! ”.. 
How’s that for White Trash Central?

Not the NASA Announcement I wished for..


The Internet yesterday was on fire with theories about the NASA press conference at 2pm EST.

Well, as you probably already know, full UFO disclosure never came.

Instead, we learned about a strain of bacteria that successfully replaced phosphorus with arsenic in it’s DNA. That’s great news. Most research into other planets supporting life is, well, crap.

An interesting fact about yesterday’s buzz is that mainstream media where seriously discussing the UFO disclosure possibility, a fact that fills my heart with joy and makes me think that the whole topic is not as outlandish or fringe as it once was. Things are changing, although the change we hoped for did not emerge yesterday.

It’s ok. We can wait a little longer.
