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.

6 Year Old Finds Fossil In Family Garden That May be 488 Million Years Old

Children have a natural fascination with rocks, with many of us having spent some days as children standing awe-struck at our museums or science centers looking at dazzling arrays of stones, or learning about the different types that can be found out our local beaches, parks, or hiking trails.

However, none of us managed to make the sort of discovery that one young boy in the U.K. did.

Siddak Singh Jhamat, known as Sid, found a fossil in his garden that dates back millions of years.

Sid found the fossil in his backyard garden in the town of Walsall using a simple fossil-hunting kit he received as a gift, reports the BBC.

His father Vish Singh was then able to identify the fossil as a horn corral that dates back 251 to 488 million years with the help of a Facebook fossil group.

“I was just digging for worms and things like pottery and bricks and I just came across this rock which looked a bit like a horn, and thought it could be a tooth or a claw or a horn, but it was actually a piece of coral which is called horn coral,” Sid explained.

“I was really excited about what it really was.”

His father Vish added:

“We were surprised he found something so odd-shaped in the soil… he found a horn coral, and some smaller pieces next to it, then the next day he went digging again and found a congealed block of sand.

“In that there were loads of little molluscs and sea shells, and something called a crinoid, which is like a tentacle of a squid, so it’s quite a prehistoric thing.”

The father believes that the distinctive markings on the fossil make it a Rugosa coral, meaning it could be up to 488 million years old.

“The period that they existed from was between 500 and 251 million years ago, the Paleozoic Era,” Vish said.

“England at the time was part of Pangea, a landmass of continents. England was all underwater as well… that’s quite significant expanse of time.”

Researchers Find 50,000-Year-Old Frozen Body of Extinct Woolly Rhino in Siberia

Researchers in Siberia have stumbled upon the 50,000 year-old remains of a rare woolly rhinoceros that was trapped in permafrost.

The remains of the woolly rhino were excavated from the Abyisky district of the Sakha Republic. The rhino was first discovered by a local in Siberia named Alexei Savin, Business Insider reported.

Savvin stumbled upon the remarkable find walking near the Tirekhtyakh River in Yakutia, Siberia last August.

It’s worth noting that this woolly rhino was found close to the site where a previous baby woolly rhino named Sasha was discovered back in the year 2014. Woolly Rhinos were once believed to have been prevalent in Europe, Russia and northern Asia thousands upon thousands of years ago until they ended up extinct.

Paleontologist Albert Protopopov of the Academy of Sciences of the Sakha Republic unveiled that the baby woolly rhino would have been approximately three to four years old when it died presumably from drowning.

The only other woolly rhino thus far that has been discovered in these regions — Sasha — was dated to be from around 34,000 years ago. However, Protopopov suggests that the newly discovered body could be anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 years old.

However, despite the body being there for so long according to Protopopov “among other things, part of the internal organs are preserved, which in the future will make it possible to study in more detail how the species ate and lived.”

Protopopov further added, “Earlier, not even the bone remains of individuals of this age were found, not to mention the preserved carcasses of animals. As a rule, these were either cubs or adults.”

A fellow paleontologist Valery Plotnikov from the Academy of Sciences further adds, “We have learned that woolly rhinoceroses were covered in very thick hair. Previously, we could judge this only from rock paintings discovered in France. Now, judging by the thick coat with the undercoat, we can conclude that the rhinoceroses were fully adapted to the cold climate very much from a young age.”

Isaac Newton’s Secret “Burnt” Notes Included Theory That Great Pyramids Predicted Apocalypse

Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most famous scientists of recorded history, left behind a large body of work that is still vital in our understanding of the world today. However, as with many public intellectuals, he also had plenty of work that was never shared with the public, even after his death.

Now, for the first time ever, some of these unpublished notes are being auctioned off, and these notes contain some of his most wild theories, and includes his thoughts on the occult, alchemy, and biblical apocalypse theory. Newton was known to dabble in the more esoteric realms of study, but very little written evidence remains about his specific thoughts on mystical topics.

Some of the remaining manuscript notes are currently being auctioned by Sotheby’s. The notes have been through a lot, and are obviously burned. The auctioneers claim that the notes were damaged in a fire that is believed to have been started by a candle that was accidentally toppled by Newton’s dog, Diamond.

According to the auction listing, “These notes are part of Newton’s astonishingly complex web of interlinking studies – natural philosophy, alchemy, theology – only parts of which he ever believed were appropriate for publication. It is not surprising that he did not publish on alchemy, since secrecy was a widely-held tenet of alchemical research, and Newton’s theological beliefs, if made public, would have cost him (at least) his career.”

The notes currently have a leading bid of £280,000, the equivalent of about $375,000.

In the notes, Newton speaks on some far-out topics that would surprise modern thinkers. For example, Newton’s notes include a theory that ancient Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza predicted the apocalypse. While it is unclear what logic he used to get to his conclusion, the theory began with his study of how the pyramids were designed according to an ancient Egyptian unit of measurement called the royal cubit.

While studying the pyramids and the cubit, Newton believed he developed an insight into sacred geometry, which somehow aligned with the apocalypse predictions in the bible.

“He was trying to find proof for his theory of gravitation, but in addition the ancient Egyptians were thought to have held the secrets of alchemy that have since been lost. Today, these seem disparate areas of study – but they didn’t seem that way to Newton in the 17th century,” Gabriel Heaton, Sotheby’s manuscript specialist, told The Guardian.

“It’s a wonderful confluence of bringing together Newton and these great objects from classical antiquity which have fascinated people for thousands of years. The papers take you remarkably quickly straight to the heart of a number of the deepest questions Newton was investigating,” Heaton added.

Interest in alchemy and mysticism was not unusual for serious scholars at the time, in fact, it was recognized as a legitimate field of scientific study.

“The idea of science being an alternative to religion is a modern set of thoughts. Newton would not have believed that his scientific work could undermine religious belief. He was not trying to disprove Christianity – this is a man who spent a long time trying to establish the likely time period for the biblical apocalypse. That’s why he was so interested in the pyramids,” Heaton said.
