Secrets of the Holy See: Vatican Secret Service

The United States Department of State has warned the Vatican of possible attacks. According to experts, the goal of the terrorists is St. Peter’s Basilica. It is visited daily by more than 50 thousand people. Authorities reassured parishioners and tourists, saying that the level of training for the security service in the Vatican is very high.

But who really protects the shrine of the Catholic world? Does the Pope have his own CIA style security service, and what do these people do?

The Vatican was not always the way we know it. Until the 19th century, it had an area of ​​about 16 thousand square kilometers. But the unification of Italy liquidated the papal state. The pontiff Pius the Ninth refused to accept the loss of land and power. Catholics were banned from participating in the elections and called to boycott the state.

A difficult problem for the church was solved by the Nazis. More precisely, Mussolini, who signed the Lateran agreements, which led to the creation of the modern Vatican.

According to the researchers, Italy paid the church one billion 750 million lire of compensation. At that time it was huge money. Mussolini simply could not do without the assistance of the church and desperately needed the support of the Vatican.

Officially today, the Vatican is a theocratic monarchy. The order on the territory of the country since 1506 has been supported by the papal guard, consisting of hired Swiss guardsmen. But do they only guard the peace of the Holy See?

Experts say that there is an organization called “Opus Dei.” This is a kind of unified information and intelligence center that accumulates information, selects the best employees who will organize, carry out operations and influence the course of any events taking place in the most private way. But of course, no one will give accurate information.

Researchers included monks of the Order of the Jesuits, Dominicans, and figures of various charitable organizations, including the famous Red Cross, which, according to some historians, after the end of World War II took an active part in concealing Nazi officers.

It is surprising. The SS men fled along the same routes, through the same monasteries, with the help of the same Catholic priests who had previously saved Jews who had fled from Germany. Here is a historical paradox.

Catholic priests were repeatedly expelled from various states on charges of espionage, and some were sentenced to an exceptional sentence.

But did the clergy really work as special agents? Did anyone manage to uncover the papal conspiracy and penetrate the holy of holies of the Vatican? What were they looking for there?

Vatican Archives

The Vatican Archive, officially known as the Archivum Secretum Apostolicum Vaticanum , was built in 1612 by Pope Paul V and is a really huge source of information collected by the church for hundreds of years.

The private archive of the Pope of Rome with the length of racks with documents of 85 km, 40 of which, according to unverified data, are the largest collection of occult literature in the world. Access to materials is open only to a narrow circle of scientists.

Here you can find priceless records such as an almost 200-meter scroll containing details of the trial of the Templars , accused of heresy and blasphemy of 1307; as well as a handwritten protocol detailing the trial of the astronomer Galileo Galilei in the 17th century; the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, which states that Mary was conceived without sin, scratched on a piece of parchment, dated 1854.

It is believed that anyone who tries to enter without permission will be excommunicated. Some believe that in these walls you can find the answer to the most complex puzzles of history.

There are opinions that some of the most secret books in the world are stored there, access to which is available only to the Masonic circle.

There are rumors that there are ancient manuscripts that describe the history of 2000 or more years. They are written by Isaiah (one of the biblical prophets). These manuscripts were allegedly found in the caves of Qumaran and after that were hidden by the Vatican from the public. They concealed knowledge of quantum physics and they could answer many different questions that scientists have not yet found answers to.

The Vatican Archive is often called the Vatican Secret Archive, mainly due to the incorrect translation of the Latin word secretum , which is actually closer in meaning to “personal” or “private”, and not “secret” or “confidential,” as many think, but it may also be related to the history of the archive, its inaccessibility and secrecy from the outside world. Archival documents over the centuries have been almost completely banned and closed from all the uninitiated, even from church officials and cardinals. The latter were allowed to use the archives since 1881, and then only with a limited list of materials.

To gain access to these isolated archives and islands of knowledge, you must be a qualified, recognized scientist or researcher who has undergone a thorough examination by the Holy See, sometimes taking several years.

If someone is fortunate enough to gain access, they enter through a single, well-guarded entrance, after which the lucky ones must indicate exactly what they are looking for in the vast collection. You can get only three documents listed in one of the thick, frighteningly massive catalogs that are handwritten in Latin or Italian. If the visitor could not decide what exactly he wants to see for a certain period of time under strict control, he leaves the archive until the next day to try again. And even if he knows what he wants, it’s not a fact that he will be given access to documents, since many materials from the archive are strictly prohibited.

There are opinions that various religious artifacts are stored in the secret archives of the Vatican, such as the legendary Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail, the True Cross, the crown of thorns and the Shroud of Turin in the original. There is also the assumption that the archives contain extensive information about the mystery of the true nature of the genealogy of Jesus Christ and evidence of Christ’s mundane existence, as well as evidence of his alleged miracles, while some, on the contrary, believe that there is evidence that Jesus did not exist at all. There are many other mystical and magical secrets supposedly buried in secret archives. According to conspiracy theorists, there are also numerous magical texts and spell books.

Conspiracy and intrigue theories revolving around the Vatican’s secret archives are numerous and sometimes even transcend human logic. Alien bodies and space technology, treasure maps, the world’s largest collection of pornography, documents on systematic child abuse and sexual abuse in the church, and much more. The beauty of all this is that there is no way to prove or disprove any of the above, and the sheer secrecy and exceptional nature of the archives makes it an ideal breeding ground for purulent conspiracy theories that will probably never disappear and cannot really be debunked.

In the entire history of the modern papacy, only the Soviet agent Joseph Grigulevich, aka Theodor Castro, managed to enter the territory of the forbidden storage. He headed the embassies of Costa Rica in Italy, in the Vatican and Yugoslavia. This is the only case in history when an illegal intelligence officer led the embassies of other states.

Experts call him a scout who was lucky and said that Stalin wanted to get rid of him. Theodore lived to be 75 years old. He wrote many books about the Vatican and the papacy, but no one has ever published the main work – secret reports.

But what are the goals of the Pope? Why does he need his own spy network? According to one version, the main task of every pontiff ascending to the throne is the return of power to the Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church is trying to exert its political influence on the state. So, for example, she destroyed the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

A series of scandals is associated with the Vatican Bank.

It is believed that for the sake of its creation one of the largest Italian banks of the second half of the XIX century was destroyed. And its director, Roberto Calvi, allegedly brought the scores to life on the London bridge. In 1984, the Vatican paid the bank creditors $ 224 million, with the condition of the official rejection of any claims.

Political scientists note that since 1991, the Vatican and the pontiff personally intervene in all political conflicts – from the Middle East to Yugoslavia and Ukraine. Since March 2013, Pope Francis became the head of the Vatican, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio in the world. For 4 years at his post, he has already tried to establish relations with China, has actively entered into negotiations between Palestine and Israel, and has also shown interest in the affairs of Iraq and Syria.

But what goals does he really pursue?.

Flying humanoids flooded the USA sky

Something very strange was filmed in March 2020 by three US residents from different places. The object resembled a dark humanoid figure and did not look like an athlete with a jetpack. The phenomenon of flying humanoids is one of the most unusual associated with ufology. It is a rare case when people see in the sky something that looks like a humanoid figure with arms and legs. Sometimes this figure moves on some strange mechanism, sometimes it levitates vertically and motionlessly.

Skeptics believe that eyewitnesses in all these cases just watched the flying balloons in the form of cartoon characters or some kind of makeshift aircraft. However, some cases cannot be described with these options. This is when the figures did not just soar in the air, but changed their shape, moved their arms and legs or moved through the air in a way that cannot be attributed to the movement of the wind.

And even today, when there is an abundance of drones everywhere, cases of observation of flying humanoids cannot be blamed on them, because drones have a certain shape and so far no company produces drones in the form of a human figure. In March 2020, two videos with flying humanoids from Arizona were sent to the American ufological site MUFON at once. The first movie was shot March 22 over the city of Phoenix, Arizona.

According to its author, his wife was the first to notice something unusual in the sky and mistook the object for a large bumblebee. But when the author of the video looked at the object with binoculars, he saw something incomprehensible, similar to the figure of a man with wings. When he began to capture the object on video, it changed its shape several times in a few minutes. At one point, it became like an “angel”, then it took the form of a stocky “big guy”.

The second video, also sent to the MUFON, was also filmed on March 22 and also in the Phoenix area. Apparently the same flying object is occupied on it as in the first video, just from a different point and by another eyewitness. And finally, the third video, which was shot in early March in Plymouth, Massachusetts, was not sent to the MUFON, but was immediately posted on social networks. The guys were on the football field when they saw in the sky something black and similar in shape to a skinny man.

What kind of objects are depicted in these three videos, so far no one has managed to determine. There were versions that these were “rocketmen” – extreme sportsmen equipped with rocket packs.

These “humanoids” though, are not particularly similar to “rocketmen”, and “rocketmen” as a rule are not involved in simply hanging in the air in a certain point.

In addition, very rarely they climb to such a great height, and only certain models of knapsacks, which are not yet available to ordinary customers, are capable of this.

What is hidden under the glaciers of Antarctica?

Under the ice of the fifth largest continent of the Earth, for example, more than 400 lakes have been discovered, but scientists have reached only four of them. It is noteworthy that Russian scientists were the first to get to the lakes near Antarctica – in 2012, samples of water from Lake Vostok were obtained.

They found three bacteria that are specific to this reservoir. Now microbiologists and genetics do not lose hope of discovering other life forms in the under-ice Antarctic lake that were previously unknown to science. Like, for example, WPS-2 and AD3 bacteria – they live in soil with other organisms and do not need either solar or geothermal energy. With a very scarce supply of nutrients, they literally switched to an “air diet”, which was a baffling discovery for scientists.

But the ice finds in Antarctica are not limited only to lakes. Not so long ago, scientists discovered under the Thwaites glacier a giant cavity with an area of ​​about 40 square kilometers and a height of about 300 meters, which was formed when about 14 billion tons of ice melted.

For professionals, this is an alarming signal for several reasons. Firstly, most of this ice has melted over the past three years. Secondly, such cavities significantly reduce the strength of icebergs. And this is fraught with the acceleration of their destruction and rising sea levels.

However, not all cavities under the ice are formed due to melting ice. Researchers have also found craters, which, on the contrary, are filled with water, creating new ice lakes. Their distinguishing feature is only that they are not isolated from the oceans, and therefore can hardly be the habitat of previously unknown forms of life and, from the point of view of discoveries, are not so interesting for researchers.

In addition to lakes and cavities, there are active volcanoes in Antarctica (a total of 91 volcanoes were found on the continent) – for example, Mount Erebus on Ross Island, which, due to its volcanic activity, has created a fairly developed network of underwater caves. In these “recesses” melted in ice by volcanic steam, scientists discovered several DNA sequences that did not correspond to any known organisms.

This means that in these caves species of plants or animals still unknown to science, may exist. Moreover, researchers are very optimistic and do not exclude the possibility of finding even unique ecosystems, and not just individual organisms.

Another mystery that the continent threw to scientists is the bizzare ice tremors that shake Antarctica every night. However, the secret was not kept for long. Having studied the unusual phenomenon, the researchers came to the conclusion that the ice surface is capable of creating small earthquakes, or rather, even ice quakes. The shocks recorded by seismographs allowed scientists to determine how the melting of the ice and the surface movements caused by it manifest themselves in this way.

It must be said that the above discoveries are only a small part of what scientists have learned about Antarctica in recent years. And one can only guess how many more secrets this mysterious continent keeps under its ice.

The mysterious phenomenon that accompanies fertilization has been recorded

The origin of life is accompanied by vortices that begin to “rage” in the egg. The phenomenon, which was observed by American scientists from Northwestern University, fascinates, awakens religious thoughts, and even looks mystical. They observed flashes of light that accompanied the fusion of the egg and sperm. Just the same “spark of life.”

“In a whirlwind of events” – this seemingly exclusively allegorical expression found a direct biological meaning. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), led by Nikta Fakhri, have recorded the mysterious wave processes that accompany the fertilization of an egg – that is, conception. Specifically, vortices were discovered and even photographed, which cascades propagation along its surface. The phenomenon was reported by the ScienceAlert portal, citing a scientific publication in the Nature journal.

Fakhri and his colleagues investigated a mysterious phenomenon, when observing under a microscope the fertilization of eggs of starfish, whose proteins were tinted with luminous substances. They made it possible to visualize the vortices that passed through the cell membranes within a few minutes after fertilization.

Waves that travel through the egg

Scientists understood the essence of the process, but did not fully understand its meaning. It was only assumed that vortices are turbulence waves, scientifically expressed, somehow direct cell division in a certain way. They send billions of proteins to specific addresses – places in which certain organs are formed.

“Without these wave-creating proteins, there would be no cell division,” the scientist says.

Researchers believe that they discovered a certain fundamental natural phenomenon that is characteristic of living and non-living matter, micro and macrocosm. For some reason everything swirls in vortices – from galaxies to cyclones and hurricanes in the atmosphere of the Earth and other planets. From the electric fields in the heart and brain to, as it turned out, the proteins in the egg.

Another natural wonder: a fertilized egg begins to glow

The phenomenon, which was observed by American scientists from Northwestern University, fascinates, arouses religious thoughts, and even looks mystical. They observed flashes of light that accompanied the fusion of the egg and sperm. Just the same “spark of life.”

Many scientists can’t believe that the process of the birth of a new life has a divine beginning and sparks are something sent from above. And the most surprising: the more intense the glow, the better the result of fertilization, that is, the transformation of an egg into a full and healthy embryo.

According to them, the intrauterine light has, and by no means a mystical explanation ..

At least the experimenters figured out its nature. And they claim that the spark is created by zinc atoms that the fertilized egg produce. They are waves following one after another with short breaks.

The human body emits rays in the visible range

Amazing experiments were conducted at the University of Kyoto (Kyoto University) and the Institute of Technology, Tohoku (Tohoku Institute of Technology). Researchers put topless people in a completely dark room – for about 20 minutes. At this time, the volunteers were filmed by a high-sensitivity camera, capable of capturing even individual photons. Filming was repeated every three hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The processing of the obtained images showed: the human body glows in the visible range. That is, emits photons. This radiance is very ghostly and weak – a thousand times less intense than the human eye can catch. But it is real.

Moreover, the researchers found that the strength of the human glow varies with the time of the day.

Most clearly people emit light at 4 pm, – Hitoshi Okamura said, one of the experimenters from Kyoto University. – Then the intensity drops, but still remains higher than the morning.

The face, eyes and the region in the area of ​​the thyroid gland shine most strongly. Each square centimeter emits about three thousand photons.

Photos of the glow are very similar to the pictures that are obtained when a person is filmed in the invisible infrared – thermal – range. But the researchers emphasize:

There is nothing in common in each case. Different colors – from blue to red – different intensities of the glow of the visible range. Blue ones correspond to a smaller one, red ones correspond to a larger one. They show the number of photons emitted from a square centimeter of the body and not how these places are heated.

People glow in the dark like ghosts.

There is no exact understanding of the processes that cause the body to glow. According to one hypothesis, it is provoked by chemical – oxidative – reactions in which the so-called free radicals are involved. But it is possible that the nature of “living” radiation is much more complex and not so primitive. It may somehow connected with the brain, since the rays mainly come from the head.

Some people, even though the intensity of the glow is very weak, are still able to perceive it. For example, psychics. It is also possible that some people become sources of very powerful photon radiation.
