The Found and Lost Atlantis Library

In 1965, on the territory of Ecuador, entrepreneur and ethnologist Juan Moricz, with the help of local Indians, discovered the oldest man-made underground communications system. According to him, he found in its halls a unique library of books, the sheets of which were thin metal plates covered with mysterious symbols. Journalists immediately called this find the Library of Atlantis.

Mysterious Metal Books

The story of this sensational discovery is very confusing, full of intrigue and tragic accidents. As a result, what could change the whole history of mankind turned out to be lost again – let’s hope not forever. It all started with the statement of the Argentine businessman Juan Moricz about the discovery in Ecuador of a huge ancient underground labyrinth, in which he discovered a mysterious library of books with metal pages.

According to Moricz, the underground tunnels discovered by him stretch for thousands of kilometers under the territories of three states at once – Argentina, Peru and Ecuador. Its main entrance is located in the inaccessible jungle region where the Santiago and Coangos rivers come together. The researcher noted that the tunnels are clearly of artificial origin, their walls are very smooth, literally polished, the ceilings are even and flat, as if covered with glaze. Passages from tunnels led the researcher to impressive underground halls. However, much more interesting than the underground communications was what Moricz discovered in them. So, according to the researcher, he found an ancient library of 20-kilogram books consisting of thin metal sheets measuring 96 by 48 cm.

On each of these pages some mysterious signs were engraved or stamped. According to Moricz, it was a library of an ancient extinct civilization.

Man Soaring Above The Earth

In addition to the library, Moricz found in the dungeons a large number of golden figures of various animals. There were elephants, bison, crocodiles, monkeys, jaguars. These figures were placed along the walls of halls and walkways. Interestingly, the floor of the tunnels was decorated with very interesting drawings. For example, one depicted a round Earth and a man hovering above it. It was clear that the representatives of the most ancient civilization clearly knew about the spherical shape of our planet.

It is worth recalling another floor drawing. Engraved on the floor of the tunnel, a fossil dinosaur was depicted! Let get reminded that, according to generally accepted data, dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, however, this figure is dated at about 4-9 thousand BC. What can be said about real meetings between dinosaurs and the representatives of this ancient civilization?

Moricz also found a very mysterious outdoor figure. A strange creature with a rectangular body and a round head stood on a globe-ball and held the sun and moon. Another figure, nicknamed the “pilot”, was in a helmet with headphones. The suit of the “pilot” resembled a spacesuit, wires led to it, a ring was attached, and the figure’s hands in gloves. One of Moricz’s astounding finds resembled the Concord model of a supersonic passenger airliner.

Juan Moritz sent one such figurine of an “airplane” to the museum of the Colombian capital Bogota, and left another in a dungeon. Experts who studied the artifact cast in pure gold came to the conclusion that the figure is actually a model of an airplane. This was indicated by geometrically regular wings and a high vertical keel, which, as you know, are not found in birds.

Squeezed By The “Grip” Of His Secret

Newspapers reported that Juan Moricz, during negotiations with the President of Ecuador, allegedly negotiated for himself the right to full control over the find and reserved the rights to filming and photography.

It seems that after his discovery, Moricz stopped sleeping soundly. Perhaps he was afraid that someone more eminent would appropriate his discovery or that some gang would plunder the treasures of the dungeons, leaving him with nothing. That’s why he kept secret the entrance to the dungeons and pulled in every way its disclosure.

However, the discovery still required him to take some action, it was necessary to maintain a certain “buzz tension” around the find, otherwise the hope for major sponsors and the assistance of well-known scientific institutions would disappear. It was then that he decided to involve Erich von Daniken, who became very famous after the publication of his book Chariots of the Gods.

In 1972, Moricz and Daniken met in South America. Daniken claimed that it was then that Moritz showed him a secret entrance to the underground communications system in in the Cueva de los Tayos (Spanish for “Cave of the Oilbirds”).

In his writings, Moricz says:

“(This is . . . ) an archaeological reality that has so far been either entirely unknown or at least flat-out denied by mainstream scientists. The first expedition serves as the steppingstone for a second part of the expedition with which we intend to obtain proof that the discovered underground cave system is an area of activity of the progenitors of mankind.”

However, the discoverer did not open the hall with a mysterious library to Daniken, but only showed him an amazing maze.

After Moricz and Daniken emerged from the caves, Moricz took him to see Father Carlos Crespi, who possessed a large collection of similar metal plates that were also covered with mysterious engravings and glyphs, and that have remained undeciphered to this day. Some of the plates look ancient, finished very elaborately and engraved with glyphs. Others appear to be almost new and made in a simplistic style. Most of the plates consist of brass, zinc and copper. (A note about the metals: the American scientist, Professor Heather Lechtmann of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, proved in a study that the pre-Columbian people of South America were masters at coating metal with very thin layers of gold, in some cases, 0.5 to 2 micrometers thick.)

Part of Father Crespi’s collection now resides in the Museum of the Banco Central in Cuenca, Ecuador. The chief restorer there, José Maldonado, wrote:

“We know nothing about the origin of these objects, nor where they were found.”

Following the trail of this “adventure”, Erich von Daniken published the book “Gold of the Gods”. In it, he described the straight and smooth walls of the tunnels that shocked him so much. However, in an interview with the German publications Stern and Spiegel, Juan Moricz unexpectedly stated that he had never been in tunnels with Erich von Daniken. This statement dealt a blow to the reputation of the Swiss, which scholars had already taken hold of after his book Chariots of the Gods.

He was accused of fabricating facts proving the presence of aliens from outer space on the planet in antiquity. Daniken claimed that it was then that Moricz showed him a secret entrance to the underground communications system. However, the discoverer did not open the hall with a mysterious library to Daniken, but only showed him an amazing maze.

Later, Moritz nevertheless admitted that he showed Erich von Daniken an insignificant cave unrelated to the main network of dungeons. Most likely, at the very last moment, Moricz realized that the Swiss, already “promoted” in the media, could well push him as a pioneer into the background. That’s why he framed the famous researcher and writer.

Daniken’s attempts to somehow justify himself were unsuccessful at that time. In an interview with the Spiegel magazine on March 19, 1973, Moricz confirmed the reality of the tunnels that he had discovered and that a certain person had indicated them to him, whose name he refused to tell. Soon, a Scottish scientist and traveler Stanley Hall contacted Moricz. He invited him to organize a joint Ecuadorian-British expedition with the participation of the Ecuadorian army, biologists, botanists and various specialists.

Stanley believed that the expedition should be led by a very authoritative person, and offered to do this to astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first person to set foot on the moon. He accepted his offer, and on August 3, 1976 a group of researchers led by Armstrong went down into the tunnels. They managed to find a funerary cave with a sitting mummified body, and the biologists who joined the expedition discovered about four hundred unknown plants near the cave.

However, this all ended – they never got to the metal library. It seems that Juan Moricz was once again afraid that all the laurels of discovery would go to a different person, because Armstrong was much more authoritative than Daniken.

Fading Ray Of Hope

In 1991, Moricz died, but Hall managed to find a man who showed him the entrance to the tunnel. It was Petronio Jaramillo. He agreed to meet with Hall and stated that Moricz had shown Armstrong’s expedition a completely different cave. If you believe Petronio, then he got into the room with a library of metal books back in 1946 with his uncle, who was friends with the Shuar tribe, which guarded the entrance to the labyrinths. Jaramillo confirmed that he personally saw thousands of metal books on the shelves.

He visited the dungeons again and chose to take out 7 books from the shelves, but could not take pull them out, it was extremely hard. By the way, he said that in the second hall there were some quartz tablets, possibly also carriers of information. Petronio talked about the numerous statues of people and animals and the sealed golden doors leading, most likely, to the graves. Wandering through the dungeons, he went into the room where there was a large translucent sarcophagus of a huge gilded mummy. Hall agreed with Jaramillo to organize an expedition to research the dungeons. Alas, the conflict between Peru and Ecuador that arose in 1995 forced researchers to postpone it. Then, in Ecuador, the political regime changed, and a sharp aggravation of the situation in the country forced Hall to return to Europe.

In 1998 he received terrible news – Petronio was killed right next to his house. Although the attack looked like a street robbery, it cannot be ruled out that someone eliminated the “key” to discovering the Atlantis library.

Although Hall never knew the exact location from Petronio Jaramillo, after the death of Jaramillo in May 1998, Hall arranged a trip with Mario Petronio, the son of Jaramillo, during which they combined their knowledge. The journey was only aimed at reaching the “zero point”.

In May 2000, Hall returned.

He showed aerial maps, indicating a bend on the river and a cliff line that hides the entrance cave – the entrance to the system, which stretches for several miles. His assumption – a rock collapse (evidence of an ancient earthquake) opened an underground network. Hall visited this place and concluded that it fits perfectly with Jaramillo’s description.

Need for cooperation

The information that Jaramillo managed to share with Hall prompted the researcher to speculate where the entrance to the cave could be, because, as Jaramillo said, the entrance is hidden under river water, and to get into the maze, you need to swim through an underwater tunnel.

So, on January 17, 2005, Hall informed the Ecuadorian government about the location of the cave, which meets the description of Jaramillo, and which, he hoped will be the goal of the expedition, this place turned out to be the bend of the Pastaz river.

For anyone who is interested, the coordinates are: – 77 ° 47’34 ′ west longitude and 1 ° 56’00 ′ south latitude.

Hall thinked it would take decades or a shift in worldview before people can work together for a common purpose. He argued that the 1976 expedition took place only because the military regime was in power; “The democratic bureaucracy will flood the expedition before at least one marshy river meets on the way.”

All that is required is a sense of cooperation and openness. Too many people have tried to use the library as evidence of their own theory of an alien coming, all-conquering Hungarians or the Hall of Records. Perhaps that is why these missions were doomed. Maybe we should let the library speak for itself. Answers to questions regarding who built it, where they came from, etc. we can find inside. After all, is it a library or not?

To this day, dozens of enthusiasts and treasure hunters are engaged in its searches, but so far without success.

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.

Stranger times. Is the time approaching when aliens will be unveiled to us?

Copyright Active Entertainment

One of the new strange phenomena of recent years has become a variety of tornadoes that suddenly began to appear in atypical places. For example, on the Baltic and Black Seas.

However, now, it seems, something new has been added to these strange atmospheric vortices: paired tornadoes, which they began to somehow appear too often.

To say that paired tornadoes do not happen is not quite right – double tornadoes happen, but their appearance is very rare: pair vortices are observed in approximately one out of a thousand cases, while neither climatologists, nor geophysicists, nor even mathematicians can clearly explain them.

Meanwhile, an explanation of such phenomena may come from a completely different perspective.

As it is obvious, from these and millions of other videos, some strange activity intensified in the planet’s atmosphere, which is definitely not related to either the military or passenger aircraft. Such activity is also observed over the Mediterranean Sea, and, more recently, quite often.

Since ufologists had not seen anything like this before, the video generated a lot of controversy. Some explained it as some kind of energy weapon, others argued that it was a fake and that UFOs did not exist.

It is not very clear what it was – a huge cylinder soaring above the clouds, or some kind of atmospheric ripple caused by the force field around a UFO, but everything is pretty similar to the incident in Syria.

In this connection, it is also worth recalling the “trumpet sounds” that residents of the southern Mediterranean coast from Egypt to Morocco heard to almost all winter:

No one understood what they were, but it is quite possible that something flies over the area from time to time, something very big. But, as we know from experience – if something big flies right above your head, then the wind rises around. And this happens quite often with UFOs:

A video with a double tornado in Morocco is now being discussed at several ufological forums and some followers even see UFOs there and we consider it a likely scenario.

People every day see more and more anomalies – volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, forest fires, some tricks in the atmosphere, and so on. And almost always in such cases, cameras record huge alien ships. Whether they deliberately set fire to forests, activate volcanoes, or whirlwind pump water from the sea, we don’t know, however, there is a highly probable connection between the anomalies and other ‘Beings’. Therefore, the more incomprehensible phenomena occur in the world, the closer the day these “Beings” will reveal themselves. And it remains for us to wait for this grandiose day. When this day comes, we do not know.
