Crystal Skulls, Past and Future of Humanity

Crystal Skulls, Past and Future of Humanity 86

In 1927, the American archaeologist F.A. Mitchell-Hedges was excavating the Lubaantoon, the ancient Mayan Indian citadel, discovered in the jungle of British Honduras, the City of the Fallen Stones, and discovered a polished quartz skull. In places, smoky spots and small balls resembling air bubbles were visible in it, but there were no cracks or scratches.

Weighing almost 5 kg, and being the perfect replica of a woman’s skull, it has a finality that would not be possible without the use of more or less modern ways, ways that the Mayan culture possessed and which we do not know about. The skull is perfectly ground. It’s jaw is a hinged part separate from the rest of the skull. It has attracted (and will probably continue to do so to a lesser extent) specialists from various disciplines over time. It is also worth mentioning that esoteric attributes of supernatural abilities, such as telekinesis, emitting an unusual aroma, discoloration is attributed to it. The existence of all these properties is difficult to prove.

The skull was subjected to various research. One of the inexplicable things is that it is made of quartz glass, and therefore having a Mohs hardness of 7 (scale of minerals from 0 to 10), the skull was able to be cut without such hard cutting materials as rubies and diamonds. Skull studies conducted in the 1970s by the American company Hewlett-Packard, have determined that in order to achieve such perfection, it would have to be sanded for 300 years.

An examination of Hewlett-Packard showed that the skull was made long before the appearance of the first civilizations in this part of America. Rhinestone of such high quality is not found at all in these places. But the most striking thing was that the skull, whose weight is 5.13 kilograms and the dimensions are 125.4 x 203.4 millimeters, is made of a solid crystal.

Here is what engineer L. Barre, one of the best experts at Hewlett-Packard, said in this regard: 

“We studied the skull on three optical axes and found that it consisted of three to four spines … Analyzing the splices, we found that the skull was cut from one piece of crystal together with the lower jaw. According to the Mohs scale, rhinestone has a high hardness equal to seven (second only to topaz, corundum and diamond), and it is impossible to cut it with anything except diamond. But the ancients somehow managed to process it. And not only the skull itself – they cut from the same piece the lower jaw and the hinges on which it is suspended. With such a hardness of the material it is more than mysterious, and this is why: in crystals, if they consist of more than one splicing, there are internal stresses. When you press the crystal with the head of a cutter, because of the voltage, the crystal can split into pieces, so it cannot be cut – it will simply split. But someone made this skull from one piece of crystal so carefully that it did not touch it at all during the cutting process. We also found a kind of prism carved in the back of the skull at its base so that any ray of light entering the eye sockets is reflected in them. Look in his eye sockets and you can see the whole room in them.”

Engineers and technicians also found something interesting. The skull has striking optical properties. In the cavity of the skull and at the bottom of the eye depressions are placed masterfully made lenses and prisms that allow you to transmit images of objects. Facial arcuate faces act as light tubes, like modern optical fibers. They transmit light from the base of the skull to the eye depressions, where they end with two miniature lenses. The two projections at the base of the skull are shaped like small pyramids.

When the light beam is directed into the cavity of the skull, the eye depressions begin to shine brightly. If you direct a beam of light to the center of the nasal cavity, the skull begins to glow completely and a bright halo appears around it.

Studies have shown that the skull was machined without taking into account the molecular symmetry of the crystal and the extreme fragility of the material. This cannot be done without crushing the crystal, even with a laser. In order to prevent such a crystal from crumbling during processing, precise analytical methods were required: the cuts should be strictly oriented with respect to the crystal growth axes. Scientists came to the conclusion that not one of the known modern technologies is capable of creating an exact copy of a human skull from a single piece of quartz. They even refused half a million dollars, which were offered to the one who made a copy of the crystal skull.

Some people believe that the crystal skull possesses mystical properties. It has different effects on those who approach it: someone experiences discomfort and incomprehensible fears, others even faint and lose their memory for some time, while someone, on the contrary, calms down and falls into a blissful state.

Historians and ethnographers interested in the Lubaantun find have begun to look for information that could shed any light on this phenomenon. Something was discovered in ancient Native American traditions. They said that there were thirteen crystal skulls of the “Goddess of Death” and that they were stored separately from each other under the watchful supervision of the priests and the strict guard of special warriors. 

Thirteen clergymen in different places at the same time had to peer at each other’s “own” skull. And they could see what was happening at that time anywhere on the Earth, and also see the past and future, right up to the end of the world. Legends said that initiates could see in the turtles the day of the return of the gods, including Kukulkan himself – the white-skinned bearded “god of the planet Venus”.

When historians became interested in this mysterious item from the Mitchell-Hedges excavation, it turned out that it was not the first such find – the archives found a reference to all the forgotten and unprecedented draw attention to the fact that in the late 80’s, a crystal skull was found in Mexico from soldiers of the Mexican emperor Maximilian, still exhibited at the British Museum. It differs significantly from the one from Lubaantoon – despite the similarity in size, it is less transparent, less detailed, and the lower jaw is fused with the skull. Nevertheless, the very existence of such mysterious skulls caused a sensation.

There are 13 such skulls, according to a legend spread in Mexico and Central America. According to local tradition, death (symbolized by numerous skulls, also represented on reliefs of the Mayan pyramids) marks the beginning of a new life of knowledge. We live in the fifth cycle. In each cycle, the human race lived, which disappeared after its end. We live under the fifth sun. Under the first, giants lived, they were destroyed by water. The kite destroyed people living under the second sun. It turned humans into apes, and only two were saved – a man and a woman. Inhabitants of the third world ate some fruits. It was destroyed by the fire of heaven. Under the fourth sun, people were starving.

According to the Mayan predictions, our world will perish from the earth’s oscillation and shake (the Earth’s magnetic poles may shift). However, in any doomsday story, there is hope for salvation. For the Mayan Indians, 13 crystal skulls became such a hope. When gathered together, the 2012 end day scenario would be prevented. The Mayan legend even states that the skulls were created when the 12 planets were inhabited. Their inhabitants conveyed the skulls of the Atlantean civilization, and they in turn gave them to the Mayan Indians.

In the course of the searches, another intriguing detail suddenly emerged. It turned out that ancient crystal skulls are of interest not only to historians, but also to some secret societies. So, in Honduras, the so-called “Pink Quartz” – a masterpiece that is not inferior to Mitchell-Hedges in its perfection – disappeared without a trace. The investigation found that, before its disappearance, priests of some secret cult had been repeatedly tried to steal it.

In addition, the crystal skulls were also of interest to serious government. So, in 1943 in Brazil, after an attempt to rob a local museum, agents of the German society “Anenerbe” were detained. At the interrogations, they showed that they had been brought to South America by the secret defence ship “Passim” – with the special task of finding and “seizing” the crystal skulls of the “Goddess of Death”. Several groups were abandoned for the same purpose. Although many were also arrested, it is possible that someone has succeeded.

Why were the crystal skulls needed by the most secret institutions of Hitler’s Germany?

Those who were interested in the secret history of the Third Reich, know today some things about its mystical roots and about a particularly secret purpose – to seize power in the invisible, metaphysical world. They also know about the main research structure of the SS – the elitist Order of Anenerbe (Heritage of Ancestors), which had over fifty research institutes under its control. The “mysterious cardinal” of this mystical order is a descendant of an ancient lineage, the bearer of the “knowledge of the devil,” Gruppenführer SS Karl Maria Willigut. It was at the initiative of Weister (alias Willigut) that the Emissaries of Anenerbe scoured around the world in search of ancient knowledge, archives and magical details of secret societies. The quest for the crystal skull was included.

They were especially interested in the magical methods of the priests of Atlantis. The Nazis hoped that this knowledge of the “progenitor of the Aryan race” would allow them not only to create a “superhuman”, but also to subjugate the rest, “subhumans.”, through magic. In search of the most ancient magical knowledge, Anenerbe organized expeditions to the farthest corners of the globe: Tibet, Central and South America, Antarctica. The two last continents were given special attention, since it was there that it was expected to find traces of the ancient Atlantes and their knowledge.

The Skull and Bones Order, whose members are representatives of the American elite

The first crystal skull was purchased in 1886 by the Smithsonian Institution. One of the skulls found is stored in Japan and is made of solid amethyst.  The skull “Mah” found in Guatemala is made of pure quartz.
The Crystal Skull stored in the Museum of Man and Paris, is rather rough and depicts the Aztec god of death. Finding him in Mexico City in 1885, Boban, who found it in Mexico City in 1885, exhibited it along with a collection of real human skulls in his store, which he called ‘Museo Cientifico’. The fashion for stereoscopic photographs of skulls, skeletons, which were called Devils, was so high that the artists even made fun of it in caricatures.

On the British Museum website, the crystal skull is located in the fakes section, although in the Mexican Museum it is located in the department of Aztec and Mistex artisans.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 98

Throughout the history of this African desert, tens of thousands of people have gone missing in its vicinity, and this is only according to official data. The sand is much more destructive than the ill-fated Bermuda Triangle. This is understandable, five thousand kilometers covered with sand.

Scientists know for certain that millions of years ago there were rivers, lakes, flowering gardens and, most likely, even the ocean in the desert, since numerous whale fossils were found in the sands.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 99

The ruins of cities, underground canals, through which water once flowed, were discovered. In one of the Sahara caves, ancient drawings and hieroglyphs were found, depicting humanoid creatures, around which there was greenery and water. There are a lot of mountains in the desert, where people have never been.

Perhaps the most mysterious place in the Sahara is rocky terrain with melted earth and traces of radiation. At this place, according to scientists, an explosion of incredible power thundered. There is a theory that all this is due to the fall of a meteorite.

This is confirmed by the chemical elements that scientists find in glass and iron. These elements are of unearthly origin, and most likely came to us with a meteorite. Moreover, the crater itself is hidden somewhere under the sands, and has not yet been found.

If you look at the desert from space, then the first thing that can be seen is the rings, called the eyes of the Sahara, with a diameter of more than fifty kilometers. There are rocky rocks near the rings that are not found anywhere else on Earth. The stones themselves are most likely solidified lava.

But all these secrets and riddles are not studied in detail, since archaeological and scientific expeditions are officially prohibited on the territory of the Sahara, due to safety. On the territory of the desert, armed conflicts constantly occur, which are a great risk for scientists. This is what official sources say.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 101

The desert can be easily studied from space, by analogy with, for example, Mars, where in the infrared range, with the help of orbiting satellites and telescopes, you can recognize artifacts, as well as make new discoveries. Unfortunately, this does not happen.

The Sahara Desert, along with the oceans of the Earth, remains the least studied.

Subconscious Games: Eliza Müller’s Martian Language

Subconscious Games: Eliza Müller's Martian Language 102

The Swiss psychologist Theodore Flournoy did not know that, having accepted an invitation from a colleague to attend a seance, he would spend five years of his life studying the secrets of the medium’s subconscious. A tall, beautiful woman sat at a round table, glaring at those who came.

Eliza Müller recently turned 33 years old, but she never got married. At the end of the 19th century, this was considered a tragedy. Eliza did not take money for the sessions, earning good money in the accounting department of a famous trading house. Talking about her, Flournois hid her real name, giving Frau Müller the pseudonym Helen Smith.

During the session, she was transformed, falling into a trance. Her eyes opened wide, her gaze rushed into space or wandered senselessly. At this moment, Eliza’s dilated pupils did not react to the bright light, and her face turned into a lifeless mask. A few minutes later, Eliza began to speak on behalf of the “spirit” that had infiltrated her – Cagliostro, Marie Antoinette, Victor Hugo and other celebrities.

At the same time, her voice completely changed, imitating those whose “spirit” was embodied in her. Sometimes Eliza spoke in a normal voice, describing the visions that appeared to her. In a trance, Frau Müller spoke to only one of those present, answering his questions. The rest of the people did not exist for her.

When Cagliostro moved into Eliza, she stood up, proudly straightening herself up, and began to speak, majestically crossing her arms over her chest. Her voice became loud and low, like that of a man, and her pronunciation was similar to Italian, with ancient turns. Cagliostro answered questions familiarly, referring to the interlocutor on “you”.

Another “spirit” that entered the medium was the Indian princess Simandini, the daughter of an Arab sheikh and the eleventh wife of Prince Nayak Sivruk of the Canary Islands, who built the Chandragiri fortress in 1401.

“The real daughter of the East appeared before us,” recalled Theodore Flournoy. – She sat on the ground with crossed legs; her solemn kneeling before the invisible incense burner, full of religious feeling, her arms crossed reverently on her chest and threefold bows gave the impression of inimitable naturalness; the melancholic tenderness of her songs, the free flexibility of her serpentine movements – such a varied facial expression, distinguished by a purely exotic character, all these movements bore the imprint of originality and ease. Unwittingly, bewilderment arose, how could a woman who did not know the East at all learn them.

During the sessions, Simandini uttered words and whole phrases that no one understood. When they were recorded and contacted by specialists, it turned out that she spoke Sanskrit. Once Eliza, in a trance, wrote a few words in a strange language. Experts in oriental writing told Theodore that this is an Arabic proverb: “A little friendship is already a lot.”

At the end of the session, announced by three knocks on the table, Frau Müller gradually returned to her normal state. It did not come immediately – it was preceded by several short awakenings, alternating with falling asleep. The woman who came to her senses did not remember what happened in the trance.

Flights to Mars

Subconscious Games: Eliza Müller's Martian Language 104

On November 25, 1894, immersed in a trance, Eliza saw a bright light at a high altitude. Then she felt herself pumped.

An example of a text in “Martian language” as presented by Helen Smith

It seemed to her that her head was empty and her body was gone. Some force was carrying her up. Then Frau Müller saw a beautiful ball and was on its surface.

– Where I am? – She asked the familiar “spirit” who was nearby.

“On a planet called Mars,” he replied.

Eliza began to describe her first impressions. She saw carts without horses and wheels, which, sliding, scattered sparks; aircraft similar to coach lights; houses with water fountains on the roof; people who spoke a strange language and, greeting each other, gave clicks in the nose; children who slept in a cradle, which instead of curtains had an iron angel with outstretched wings …

Frau Müller began to visit Mars during almost every trance. Little by little, she learned to speak and write in Martian. It turned out that one of the rulers of the planet, a certain Astane, lived on Earth in a past life and was familiar with Simandini.

Once Eliza in the company of Astane attended a magnificent local celebration. Dressed in a sequined dress (she imagined it was a Martian one), she entered a large square hall, lit by lamps at the corners.

Many ornamental plants hung everywhere. In the middle of the room was a grove surrounded by small, shiny tables. Inside was a cheerful crowd of young men and women, whose hairstyles bore the appearance of a pink, blue, or green moth.

At a sign given by Astane, everyone sat down at the tables decorated with flowers. Two men placed square plates and forks without handles in front of the Martians. Then they served strange-looking dishes, but the taste was excellent. The holiday ended with dances and songs.

Even stranger things were said by Eliza about her visit to the Martian foster home. In the huge hall along the walls there were “cradles” that resembled changing tables. In each “cradle” lay a child.

Martians walked around the hall with domestic animals, which had a wide, flat, almost hairless head and large kind eyes, like those of seals. Their large udders were inserted into a square tube milking unit. The Martians now and then stuck a pipe into the mouths of babies, feeding them milk.

On the way to the solution

Subconscious Games: Eliza Müller's Martian Language 105

Trying to find out as much as possible about the past of the medium, Flournoy found the family doctor Frau Müller. After talking with an elderly doctor, the psychologist showed him a note with an Arabic proverb. The doctor replied that this was his writing style. Several years ago, he traveled to Arabia and knew Arabic well.

Every time he gave a book about travel to friends, he would add an Arabic saying to his autograph. Eliza saw one of the autographs and in a trance drew it from memory from left to right, and did not write, like a real Arab woman, from right to left.

When Flournois invited a famous linguist to the sessions, the scientist said that Simandini’s language is not real Sanskrit, but a mixture of it with words similar in sound, but at the same time meaningless. The linguist got the impression that Eliza somehow saw the Sanskrit dictionary or grammar and leafed through it out of boredom.

Frau herself, of course, had forgotten everything a long time ago, but the subconscious mind kept the words it saw in its memory and then used them during the trance, plugging the blanks with words of its own invention.

Then it was the turn to find out if Princess Simandini and her husband Sivruk existed. All historians amicably answered that these names were unfamiliar to them. Flournoy was ready to give up, but then an old book on the history of India, written in 1828, fell into his hands. Everything that the princess said to herself turned out to be exact quotes taken from there!

Flournoy was able to prove that the source of information from the “spirits” were books that Frau Müller read as a child and forgot. During her trance, her brain would extract pieces of forgotten memories and build plots from them – of course, without the knowledge of her sanity.

Scientists were presented with a fantastic game of the mind and subconscious, surpassing everything that they had previously encountered. The process, when fragments from long-forgotten memories float out and are perceived by the subject himself as something alien, otherworldly, Theodore called cryptomnesia.

Subconscious games

The scientific assault on the “Martian language” was short-lived. Linguists said that the Martian language completely copies the grammar of the French language.

“This is a language that a young child could compose by replacing every word in the French dictionary with an arbitrary combination of letters and each letter with an arbitrary sign,” the experts said. “The language is childish, but as an effort of memory it is a miracle.”

Eliza Müller’s subconscious was trying to get out not only in a trance state. Sometimes she switched to the “Martian language”, not noticing that the interlocutor did not understand her. There could be several such interruptions during one conversation. Even in business correspondence, Frau Müller often inserted phrases or individual letters in “Martian” without noticing the mistake.

In 1900, Flournoy’s book “From India to the Planet Mars” was published, where the author summed up the five-year work of a team of scientists. After reading it, Eliza was furious. Since then, no specialist has received permission to attend her sessions.

A year later, a wealthy American woman gave Eliza financial support so that she could quit her job and focus on developing her mediumship. Frau Müller, who is so good at drawing, has a new talent. Going into a trance, she took up brushes and painted pictures on religious themes. Eliza’s paintings are considered a prime example of art brut – art of non-professionals, which has a spontaneous character and does not depend on cultural traditions.

Frau Müller died on June 10, 1929 in Geneva. Until her last breath, Eliza believed that she was the chosen one of spirits, aliens and saints, called to bring the truth to our lost world.

Mysterious Lake Funduji: why you can’t take water from this African lake

Mysterious Lake Funduji: why you can't take water from this African lake 106

In the northeast of the Republic of South Africa is the picturesque, but mysterious and ominous Lake Funduji. The local population considers the lake sacred and tells legends about it.

Despite the problems with fresh water in Africa, the tribes never settled on the banks of the Funduji, did not fish there and did not even replenish the water supplies from this lake.

This is because, according to local legends, it is impossible to take a drop of water from Lake Funduji, and anyone who touches the water, or even more so drinks it, will soon die. Also, people made sacrifices to the mythical monster Funduji to appease him.

The general public learned about Funduji at the beginning of the 20th century, when deposits of chrome ore were found in the vicinity of the lake. When expeditions from Europe began to come to this area, the lake was finally mapped.

Scientists listened to the stories of the locals about the ominous lake and the monster, but in the course of geological research, nothing mystical was found.

Mysterious Lake Funduji: why you can't take water from this African lake 107

In 1955, Professor Henry Burnside and his assistant Thacker decided to check the legend about strange water that cannot be carried away from the lake. Scientists collected water in several containers made of different materials – glass, porcelain and plastic, and walked several kilometers, intending to examine the samples.

But it was not possible to carry out the analysis: in the morning all the containers were empty. Then the scientists decided to return to the lake and take new samples. This time, Burnside dipped his finger into the water and tasted it: the taste of the water was bitter-rotten.

Throughout the day, scientists observed the containers, but no changes occurred, and by morning the vessels were empty again. Burnside intended to go back to the lake and examine water samples on site, but the plans were prevented by a sudden deterioration in his health: the professor was hospitalized, and a week later he died – as it later turned out, from intestinal inflammation.

It would seem that there is evidence of sinister legends, but there is still a scientific explanation for the phenomena of Lake Funduji. In fact, chromium ore deposits are the cause of the anomalies.

Chromium salts are very toxic to humans, and the concentration of chromium in the lake was so high that a couple of drops killed Professor Burnside.

The disappearing water phenomenon is also explained by the high chromium content. At temperatures below 19 degrees Celsius, chromium particles in water crystallize (therefore, the water “disappeared” at night, when it was cooler). In fact, the liquid from the vessel does not go anywhere, but turns into a solid state, scattering along the bottom and walls of the vessel.

To be fair, some of Funduji’s riddles have not yet been solved – for example, it is not clear why a large number of crocodiles live in the poisonous lake. It is also unclear what these reptiles eat, because there are no fish in the lake, and other animals do not go there to drink.
