The Secrets of Edward Leedskalnin and His Incredible Coral Castle



Coral Castle PicPeople from all over the world travel to Egypt or Machu Picchu to draw inspiration and wonder from the massive pyramids that litter the desert sands, or the ruins of ancient civilizations, but there is an even more astounding mystery called Coral Castle right in the middle of Homestead, Florida off Dixie Highway just outside of Miami in the US. Otherwise known as the American Stonehenge, this site defies any logical explanation. Built by a reclusive genius – the Latvian immigrant named Edward Leedskalnin, Coral Castle is a series of coral blocks, many weighing in excess of 30 tons that are arranged to create an imaginative abode. To this day, no one has been able to determine exactly how Leedskalnin built this enigmatic structure. Did he have access to the same secrets as those who built the ancient Pyramid of Giza, or the Great Sphinx?

The castle is made with 1,100 tons of rock, yet the man was merely five feet tall, and weighed just 110 pounds. His miraculous engineering created a universal wonderland with a 22-ton obelisk, a 22-ton moon block, a Saturn block, a 23-ton Jupiter block, a 9-ton gate, a rocking chair that weighed 3-tons, and many coral rock puzzles. A huge 30-ton block, which he considered to be his premier achievement, he crowned with a gable shaped rock.

Leedskalnin said he knew the secrets of the ancient Egyptians, but he took them to his grave in 1952. He did leave a few hints, but they are cryptic to say the least.

In his five pamphlets Ed talked of “mineral, vegetable, and animal life,” “magnetic currents,” and other seemingly unrelated topics such as the importance of books, (he built huge coral reading chairs though he didn’t even have electricity at the time his castle was built) his belief’s about the life cycle, and even his political slant. None of these seem to give a definitive answer for how he made his magic happen.

Ed was known to tinker with radio sets, too though, so was he figuring out how to work with resonance as a way to move these tremendous boulders of coral? Did his seeming ability to levitate heavy objects have something to do with the stars above him? His castle does contain a ‘moon fountain’ which is comprised of three huge pieces of rock, a sun dial, labeled with the time from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (noting that these were the times a man should work), a sun coach that is 8 feet in diameter, and planets, including a prominent Mars, where Ed believed there was indeed life.

It might be that a modern-day genius had figured out both the secrets of the pyramids and Leedskalnin’s ace-up-his- sleeve, but was poisoned to death before he could share his ideas with anyone of note.

Around 1980, an inventor named Stanley Meyer invented special circuitry that made it possible to break apart water molecules much more efficiently than normal electrolysis would normally allow, which afforded him to create energy from the water than he was consuming from the electrical source in surplus. Coincidentally, this special circuitry is based off of the resonant frequency of water. The system is said not work unless the exact resonant frequency of a water molecule is used, and of course that frequency can change based on the impurities in the water, salt content, etc. Was Leedskalnin a frequency master? Did he use water to raise his incredible coral rocks and fit them perfectly into place, as the Egyptians might have?

Not only are certain frequencies known to induce altered states, but might they not induce matter to behave differently if orchestrated by a true frequency mastermind?

One of the known secrets of the Universe is the novel application of sound frequencies. John Worley Keely discovered that certain musical frequencies allowed him to accomplish amazing feats which defied conventional physics and confounded the academics of his time.

“Music on earth was a reflection of the greater ‘music of the spheres’, a harmony created by relative distances and rates of motions of the planets – a harmony that was constantly present, if only people were sufficiently sensitive to hear it.” (Yudkin, Jeremy, Music in Medieval Europe, 1989).

If Leedskalnin and the Egyptians were familiar with the ‘music of the spheres’ this may have been part of the secrets of their phenomenal building achievements. It may have been that these frequencies altered matter itself, or that the consciousness of the individual was altered so that he or she could then alter reality. The reality we experience is an illusion anyhow. In fact everything we call real is made of things that can’t be called real at all.

To wit:

“A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. (R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature 436:29, 2005)”

Leedskalnin likely was trying to avoid the same fate that Meyer, and many other scientists and inventors endured who may have shed some clear light on Coral Castle, and other great pyramids throughout the world, but one thing is certain. Ed had some insights that most of us yet are privvy to. We just need to open our minds.
