Pyramids, Monks, and Reality Chunks.

Posted by

Aimlessly wandering through the forest today. I have just about dissipated the 80 boxes of “stuff” which came up from Wheeling finally, and the house and SITU garage and basement research areas are almost presentable to somebody “normal”. Of course I know that I wouldn’t have to spruce it up for any of YOU folks. You obviously like a “little” abnormality or you wouldn’t be here.
With the better part of the “work” done, there came a brief releasing of breath, and a chance to think about posting something. This post is a mixture of things, which, though I guess we’re supposed to think that “everything’s connected”, I’ll leave the synthesis, if any, to you. I’m going to blunder about these:
a]. Shensi Pyramids; b]. A claim of spectacular Buddhist monk psi; and c]. everyone’s favorite new word, “jottles”.

The pictures above are the reason for topic “a”. I was putting away a near-final SITU Chaos Box when a decaying plastic package containing these photos emerged. Thankfully, for a change, they were labeled on the back. But not when they were taken. They were defaced, and I’ve tried to clean them up so you can enjoy looking at them more.
Here are the words which went with each photo: 1). “Tsin Che Huang-ti pyramid. Length: 350m; height: 48m; volume: 1,900,000 cubic meters. Chensi Province.” 2). “Han Yuan-ti pyramid. Valley of the River Wei” 3). “The Nan-Ling. Pyramid of Emperor Wu.      “The Ngan-Ling. Pyramid of Emperor Hu-wei.        150-200m in length; 20m high.” 4). “The Marshal’s pyramid.” 5). “Han Tchao-ti pyramid. 73 BC” [backside actually had a different way of denoting the “before Christ era”.] 6). “The Marshal’s pyramid”.
Well, that’s what there was. SITU never used any of these pictures, but did address the mysterious Chinese pyramids very early [1973] in its publication of PURSUIT. The photograph that they DID use they claimed a member got from a book published in 1902, entitled Through Hidden Shensi by Francis H. Nichols. This reference seems almost unknown to people who are commenting upon the Shensi pyramids on the internet, which is a curiosity in itself. Wikipedia, for instance, knows nothing about this and references something about ten years later for earliest “western” knowledge of these structures. And I looked at a half dozen special interest sites, and none of them reference it either. A bit odd….
The PURSUIT article went on to talk of the “famous” US military pilot overflight in 1947, the report of which brought the subject of these pyramids “out of the closet” finally. The pilot, Colonel Maurice Sheahan, photographed a pyramid from the air and this was published.

Apparently this is that photo. This 1947 pyramid is manicured on the sides with a noticeably flat top. None of the mysterious photos from the Chaos Box look quite that way. The answer?: MANY pyramids scattered all about Shensi. Somehow, the photo above and the story by the American pilot got molded into a belief that the pyramid shown was a structure so great that it dwarfed the Great Pyramid of Egypt. The statement widely circulated that the Shensi pyramid was 1000 feet high, whereas the Great Pyramid only 470. However big the photo’d Shensi pyramid really was/is, none of the pictures that I just uncovered claim to show pyramids greater than about 150 feet. Arguments began about the size of this thing resulting in dataless baloney and name-calling.

Regardless of the debate about size [another utterly pointless human brouhaha], it’s at least certain that the pre-Christian era Chinese emperors piled up great pyramidal mounds of earth for some reason, did this lots of times, and oriented all of them very close to true North-South-East-West lines. The Egyptians did this, too, and in their case we know that they were pointing their “exit shafts” towards the Polar stars, so that Pharaoh’s soul could launch upwards into the realm of the “Undying Heavens” {The Star region which never set}, and there remain in Paradise Immortal. Did the Chinese Emperors share the thought?
Well, modern folks at least are trying to turn the “mystery” of the giant “White Pyramid” [there has gotten to be an added claim that the really big one has a glorious shining white top section], into a great variety of what seem largely to be their own reveries untrammeled by facts. One of these ideas is that the Great White Pyramid contains a veritable treasurehouse of ancient Chinese wealth. Another is that it is a great depository of secrets, and there seems to even be a newly minted “brotherhood of the White Pyramid” set up to keep the rest of us out. [wherever the thing is].

Now for a little added disclosure: when I first came across the SITU pyramid pictures, my first thought wasn’t particularly about any mysteries associated with them, but instead of being reminded of reading “somewhere” of a guy who slogged across central China during one of their interminable wars, and “discovered” the location of the pyramids by accident. He then went on to a much more fascinating experience, which I will tell of in a moment. But I couldn’t remember where I’d read this, and all my files were empty. Then it dawned on me that I “knew” one person who would have been panting with excitement about such things. Can you guess?
Wait for it……….
george hunt williamson. Yep, good old Georgie. The article that I sought was right in his files. Like I just said, I’ll get to the details of what really interested me in a moment, but GHW was on the hunt of big things himself. The map above [somehow GHW got hold of an old military operations map; the guy was amazing] shows George’s plot of his interpretation of the trip that the writer, Fred Meyer Schroder, took in 1912. The markings are Williamson’s. George deduced that Schroder came down the road [dark dashed line] entering the map top-middle and continued south and west with a line of pyramids on his left. GHW might actually be correct about this. Here GHW felt that Schroder “discovered” a whole array of pyramids seemingly kept secret even from most of the authorities.
Why was Williamson interested? He felt that these pyramids were “linked” somehow with the pyramids in Egypt, and that they somehow pointed the way to powers. He corresponded enthusiastically about this with New Zealand UFOlogist and generally far-out thinker, Bruce Cathie. Both of them believed that the Earth was dotted with some sort of regular grids, which ancient magicians or sensitives could detect and utilize somehow by building structures at key points. Cathie “calculated” that the prime pyramid of Shensi [the one marked “1” on the map] was precisely paralleled in one one his grids with the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Georgie was enamored of the whole lay-out, as he saw the pyramids in the form of the constellation Draco the Dragon, symbolizing the Earth’s Dragonline power {the Chinese have their dragonline, feng-shui, concept rather than our ley line concept}. Both GHW and Cathie were now assured that they were on the path to greatness and proceeded to locate the site where Adamski met the Spaceman in the desert on one of Cathie’s grid points. [NOT kidding].
Well, how much better can it get? Ivan Sanderson may have paid some attention to this, as he was migrating to a concept of a “dodecadated globe” to “explain” places like The Bermuda Triangle and the rest of his “Vile Vortices”.
I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I believe that none of that grid-drawing makes any sense whatever. What I DO think makes at least partial sense is the adventure of Fred Meyer Schroder, who trekked past those pyramids in 1912.

Schroder was an original character who reveled in living a full throttle life. In 1912 he and a partner were making a good living operating caravans mainly between the Mongolian capital of Urga [Ulan Bator] and the Great Wall trading terminuses. They went into the Chinese interior carrying cigarettes and other items of vice, and bringing illegal guns back to Urga for the Mongolian rebels. At this moment, the revolution was particularly hot, and Schroder and his buddy were in danger from the Chinese military. Their Mongol friends brought them a surprising message that they were being sent for by the local high holy man. This lama told them that the Chinese military would crush them all, unless one thing happened. That one thing was that “the red god” would send a direct message to the monks around the Urga region to rise up as one force and fight. This was the name of the Tashi Lama of Kumbum Monastery, the second most revered holyman after only the Dalai Lama. Schroder and his friend were to journey to the monastery of the Red God and inform him of this need.
This was asking a journey of over 2000 miles, but in a way there was little choice. Schroder’s partner stayed behind to help with the fighting, and Schroder went more or less south to pick up an influential lama to accompany him the bulk of the trip. It was during the mainly westerly part of the journey that Schroder saw the Shensi pyramids. All that element of the adventure seemed to make good reading sense to me. The travelers made greater than fifty miles per day mounted and enjoying no military interruptions, and with the lama along, good welcomings. Plus, the pyramids seem accurately placed and described. So far so good.

They get to Kumbum monastery and the Red God asked to see Schroder immediately. Schroder explained the reason for his journey. The Red God listened in friendly fashion, but did not then agree to do what was asked. There were regular meetings for two weeks more. During this time it was as if the high lama was getting to know Schroder at a depth he wanted to. It was then that the thing happened, or was alleged to have happened, that interested me. The Red God decided to show Schroder how the monastery got its information about how things were going in Mongolia.

Schroder says that he was taken by the Tashi Lama to a very quiet room, which seemed to be an environment for maintaining an altered state of consciousness via meditation. Young monks [over twenty in number] sat on prayer rugs in a semi-circle and had the appearance of dozing off. Other monks sat or stood by quietly watching the “dozers”. When one of the monks would rouse, a watcher would hurry over to him with a cup of tea. The roused monk would drink avidly, then tell the onlookers “where he’d been” and what was the news he brought from there.
This room was, therefore, what we might today call a location for maintaining a dream-like altered state of consciousness for “remote viewing”, or at least that’s what I believe my friend Hal Puthoff would call it. The difference between what Hal tried to accomplish with remote viewers like Pat Price, Hella Hammid, and Ingo Swann was that the Tashi Lama [unlike the CIA] considered this “actionable intelligence”. And the high lama DID act, agreeing that the information received by this method from the Urga area indicated that his support for the revolution there could produce success.

So ……. did this happen? We westerners have only Schroder’s word for it. But the rest of his narrative also had “unbelievable {for the time}” wonders in it [the pyramids], and that part proved true. And we have had for many years the knowledge that Buddhist meditators claim at the highest levels to be able to achieve the “siddhis”, or a set of paranormal abilities which include “distant knowing”. And we have Hal’s work, which says that even we undisciplined westerners can do it some of the time. Buddhist meditation seems to be a sort of “mental technology” for achieving {at great patient commitment} some of these potentials. Maybe Schroder was privileged to witness a “psychic information center” inside the Kumbum Monastery.
Now…. how to put all this remote viewing and pyramid mysteries together in true George Hunt Williamson style?

Whoops!! No way. You’re not going to sucker me in on THAT one!!
Thankfully, George passed before the Martian pyramids stuff arose. Would he ever have gone bonkers on that!
And now for something completely different…. yeh, I know, GHW would have found a connection with this too……

My [and our] good friend, Jerry Clark, sent me a piece of a contribution to a monograph by a parapsychologist named Mary Rose Barrington on her concept of “jottles”. She says JOTTs or “Just One of Those Things”. The idea is actually a bit useful, as it does not really embed within the word a model of the envisioned theoretical reason for JOTTs. It has gotten several persons talking about it, including a whole panel at the British Society for Psychical Research. Barrington is trying to describe in general terms the far-more-common-than-realized-or-admitted phenomenon of puzzling disappearances and re-appearances of everyday objects. When such happens, it’s “just one of those things”.
The table above lists Barrington’s types of JOTTs or as they are coming to be called “jottles”.
I had, and described here on the blog, a mind-boggler jottle [for me, anyway], when my watch went missing, and several days later AFTER I HAD PURCHASED A NEW ONE, it “reappeared” exactly in the wide-open corner of the kitchen cabinet-top where it was supposed to be all along. I have a VERY organized sister to whom these things happen disturbingly regularly. These are classic “comebacks” in the types listed above. My UFO buddy, Robert Powell, did us all one better with a “trade-in” wherein a pair of scissors was replaced by a non-identical pair, and later the original scissors “returned” alongside the new interloper!.
{ I probably shouldn’t have included this along with the other material above, but I thought if I don’t slot this in now, I’ll likely forget, so here it is. I wanted to share the concept and the following two stories}.

I believe that Robert’s jottle is better that Manfred’s, but Grosse’s tale is genuinely Out Proctor.

Barrington seems to lean towards an idea that quantum fluctuations in an unruly Universe must have something to do with this, and who knows? But I still prefer, as the Old Religion did, the concept of the paranormal entity who has been messing around with us from Time Immemorial. Heck, he/she/it can use quantum fluctuations like a Maxwellian Daemon.

Peace and joy, folks…. and may all your jottles be amusing ones.

40,000-Year-Old Bracelet Made With Advanced Technology — the Evidence

Dating back to the Denisovan species of early humans, scientists have confirmed that a bracelet found in Siberia is 40,000 years old. This makes it the oldest piece of jewelry ever discovered.

The bracelet is discovered in a site called the Denisova Cave in the Altai region of Siberia in 2008 and after detailed analysis Russian experts now accept that the bracelet’s age as correct.

Scientists conclude it was made by our prehistoric human ancestors, the Denisovans, an extinct species of humans genetically distinct from Neanderthals and modern humans, and shows them to have been far more advanced than ever realized.

But what made the discovery especially striking was that the manufacturing technology is more common to a much later period, such as the Neolithic era. Indeed, it is not clear yet how the Denisovans could have made the bracelet.

Writing in the Novosibirsk magazine, Science First Hand, Dr Derevyanko said:

“There were found two fragments of the bracelet of a width of 2.7cm and a thickness of 0.9 cm. The estimated diameter of the find was 7cm. Near one of the cracks was a drilled hole with a diameter of about 0.8 cm.”

“Studying them, scientists found out that the speed of rotation of the drill was rather high, fluctuations minimal, and that was there was applied drilling with an implement – technology that is common for more recent times”, Dr. Derevyanko told the Siberiantimes.

It is known that the Denisovans migrated out of Africa and having branched away from other humanoid ancestors some 1 million years ago.

Genetic studies confirm that skeletal remains of Denisovans, that dated back as early as 600,000 years ago were quite different to both Neanderthals and modern man and the studies confirm that they did coexist not only with modern humans and the Neanderthals, prior to become extinct, but as DNA evidence suggests, the Denisovans also must have interbred with an as yet unknown and undiscovered species of humans beings… or maybe an Extraterrestrial species?

300,000 year old nanostructures found in the Ural mountains

Found in the Ural Mountains in Russia, these objects have caused quite a buzz since their discovery. A lot of websites went on and posted articles about these mysterious objects that were discovered in 1991 near the banks of Russia’s Kozhim, Narada, and Balbanyu rivers. The tiny structures are believed to have been the product of an extremely ancient civilization that was capable of developing nanotechnology about 300,000 years ago. The age of these mysterious nanostrctures have placed them in the list of “out of place artifacts” given the fact that researchers estimate them to be around 300,000 years old.

The objects were discovered during a geological research mission whose purpose was the extraction of gold in the Ural mountains in Russia, and while gold was the number one thing to look for, researchers weer amazed to find something apparently much more valuable. The pieces discovered are coils, spirals and shafts among the list of unidentified components that were unearthed during the geological missions in the area.

The Russian Academy of sciences performed several tests on these mysterious objects and the results were quite interesting. Researchers found out that the largest pieces that were unearthed were made almost entirely out of copper and the smaller ones from tungsten and molybdenum.

The Russian Academy of Science has a structure of 11 specialized scientific divisions, three territorial divisions also referred to as branches, and it consists of 14 regional scientific centers. The Academy has numerous councils, committees and commissions, organized for different purposes and studies.

A lot of people who read about these artifacts have discredited their discovery and meaning stating that there is no research facility from the RAS and that the research performed was dubious but they are mistaken as the Ural Division of the RAS was established in 1932, with Aleksandr Fersman as its founding chairman. Research centers are in Yekaterinburg, Perm, Cheliabinsk, Izhevsk, Orenburg, Ufa and Syktyvkar.

The materials were submitted to a more extensive research a couple of years after their discovery to find out more about the mysterious objects and their composition and according to the Russian Academy of Science and their department for Geology; the metals have not originated in nature on their own, meaning that they are components that have a artificial technological origin, in other words they were manufactured.

According to the information available, these nanostructures were found at a depth between 10 and 40 feet, research also shows that they range in date from 20,00 to over 300,000 years. But who made them and for what purpose? are they the result of a now extinct ancient civilization? Or are they the result of something beyond our planet? These are the questions that have been asked when it comes to the origin of these ancient nanostructures.

Even though research has been made in Russia, some argue that given the skeptical opinion worldwide about this findings, it would have been interesting to see what other researchers in other countries have to say about these nanostructures and even though the materials were studied in Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Moscow there have been no documents made available concerning the nanostructures, their origins and purpose.

According to Dr. E.W. Matveyeva, of the Section for Geology, Prospecting Techniques, and Economics of Precious Metal Alluvial Deposits; The layer which contains the spiral-shaped objects is characterised as gravel and detritus deposits of No. 3 stratum, which in our view, show inner-sedimentary erosion of polygenetic accumulative layers (i.e. layers composed of material of various origins). From their orientation these layers can be dated to 100,000 years and correspond to the lying parts (i.e. the lower regions) of the Mikulinsk horizon of the upper Pleistocene.

Particular attention should be paid to the final conclusion reached by the Moscow institute. Report No. 18/485 states that the age of the deposits and the results of the tests give a very low probability to the assumption that the origin of these unusual, thread-shaped tungsten crystals is of a technogenic cosmic nature, due to the rocket take-off route from the Plesetsk space-station over the polar part of the Ural region.

Debate over these object will continue due to the “mysterious” nature of these objects and while there is a possibility that these nanostrcutres could have originated from n ancient civilization that lived on Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago, other possibilities cannot be excluded.

The Dispilio Wood Tablet – One of the Oldest Written Texts in History

by John Black, Ancient Origins

According to conventional archaeology, writing wasn’t invented until 3000 to 4000 BC in Sumeria.  However, an artefact was found over a decade ago which contradicts this belief – and perhaps this is the reason why few people know about the discovery.

The Dispilio tablet was discovered by a professor of prehistoric archaeology, George Xourmouziadis, in 1993 in a Neolithic lake settlement in Northern Greece near the city of Kastoria. A group of people used to occupy the settlement 7,000 to 8,000 years ago.

The Dispilio tablet was one of many artefacts that were found in the area, however the importance of the table lies in the fact that it has an unknown written text on it that goes back further than 5,000 BC.

The wooden tablet was dated using the C12 method to have been made in 5260 BC, making it significantly older than the writing system used by the Sumerians.

The text on the tablet includes a type of engraved writing which probably consists of a form of writing that pre-existed Linear B writing used by the Mycenaean Greeks. As well as the tablet, many other ceramic pieces were found that also have the same type of writing on them.

Professor Xourmouziadis has suggested that this type of writing, which has not yet been deciphered, could be any form of communication including symbols representing the counting of possessions.

More artefacts were discovered that show the economic and agricultural activities of the settlement, proof of animal breeding and their diet preferences as well as tools and pottery, figurines and other personal ornaments.

Decoding the writing is going to be difficult if not impossible, unless a new Rosetta stone is found. Unfortunately, by the moment the tablet was removed out of its original environment, contact with oxygen started the deterioration process and it is now under preservation.

It is impressive to think that the wooden tablet had remained at the bottom of the lake for 7,500 years.

While this artefact predates the Sumerian writing system, I am sure in the future more will be found in other areas of the world that will go even further back in time, until the true history of humanity will be unravelled and completely change what we know about our history.

The Danube civilization is rarely mentioned, yet it is probably the oldest in Europe.
