The Mysterious Taos Hum

Taos – A small, laid-back community in New Mexico is known for some strange reasons. People are aware of the small American town not only for its artworks, Spanish culture, and events, but also an unexplained phomenoma surrounding Taos. What is it that draws the attention of the world to this isolated desert settlement?

The answer is – The Taos Hum.

A faint humming or buzzing sound from a non-discernible source is heard in the area. Neither the local inhabitants  nor the government knows what is the exact source of the noise. It is estimated that the frequency of the hum is very low and can be around 30 to 80 Hz. Based on  surveys taken by the residents, it is strange that only 2% of the population reported having heard the sound. Even more perplexing is the individual statements they gave. Many residents describes the noise in a different way.  Some people believe it is a low hum while the others describe it as whirring sound. Townsfolk might say the sound resembles that of a mosquito buzzing, while others compared it to the sound of idling diesel truck.

The unknown sounds have been summarized in this way:

  • Sudden and abrupt start.
  • Always are a faint low and nearly inaudible.
  • There is a frequent fluctuation in the pulse of the noise.

Government officials tried to get to the bottom of the audacious huming but could not find the solution, even after attempts to improve the electrical transmission lines in the area.  The residents continued to hear the sounds. The entire investigation about the Taos hum was kept public because a part of the population believed it to be some sort of government strategy.

The speculations of the cause of the phenomenon range from the paranormal to something psychological, perhaps supernatural to even extraterrestrial. Theories include underground UFO bases, stoned hippies, secret exorcisms, restless souls and alien invasions were circulated as possibilities by the residents.

The sound was first reported in the early 1990s. Joe Mullins, a professor emeritus of engineering at the University of New Mexico, conducted several research programs to study the Taos Hum. He was the first one who thought of putting up equipment in the ‘hearers’ homes. Joe Mullins of and Horace Poteet of Sandia National Laboratories wrote the team’s final report which was published on November 22, 1995. Even after extensive testing and repeated trials, nothing of notable value was actually recorded. The only unusual detection was  increased electromagnetic levels in the area. This was later proved to be due to electrical power lines. The final conclusion of the tests suggests the it is the perception of the what people thought they may be hearing and not any specific sound. In any case, the villagers weren’t convinced with the evaluation.

If you happen to venture into Taos casually, you will assume it to be just another ordinary small town. But if you listen very closely, you may realize that the place is not so quiet after all. Even after the much scientific intervention, the true answer behind the phenomenon has not been  explained.

What do you think is the source of the elusive hum?

UFO Or A Meteorite? Mystery Surrounded Patomskiy Crater

What landed here – a UFO or a meteorite? This 40 meter high geological formation was never thoroughly investigated until the 2000s but Russian scientists seem to have found an explanation.

A gloomy dark mount towers over the bright green landscape of the dense Russian taiga. Looking like a giant speaker – 40 meters high and 100 meters wide – it’s an unexpected site to see in a remote area in the north of Irkutsk region, some 210 km north of the town of Bodaibo.

Until 1949 only a few locals knew about it. They call it the “Fire Eagle’s Nest” and used to think of it as a bad place that even animals avoided. Some who visit this place die a strange death and household animals vanish without a trace. What’s the mystery behind this crater and is there a rational explanation for the all the mysterious activity?

How it was discovered

The scientist who first chanced upon this unique formation was Russian geologist Vadim Kolpakov. In 1949 he came here to conduct research and couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the crater.

“I thought I was mad,” he recalled. “From a distance it reminded me of a giant pit mine and I even wondered if people were there. Why would they be? This is a dense area of the taiga. Plus there were no NKVD labor camps around here – I knew it for sure. Secondly, I thought that it might be an archeological artefact, but the local Evenk and Yakut people were not ancient Egyptians. They can’t built rock pyramids.”

A closer examination showed that the crater was a large mound made of shattered limestone blocks with a diameter of around 160 meters, with an estimated weight of about one million tons. The crater was coined “Patom” (the name of a nearby river), but wasn’t examined thoroughly until the 2000s due to a lack of funding.

Theories

The mystery of “Fire Eagle’s Nest” has fueled various theories, from an alien ship landing to an underground nuclear reaction. Some, including Kolpakov himself, supported the idea that the crater was formed by a meteorite falling on the Patom Highland – people thought it might be a fragment of the Tunguska meteorite that fell in the Siberian taiga in 1908. Others suggested that the crater is a volcanic structure that formed due to gas steam jets from a significant depth along fault zones.

The first complex scientific expedition that visited the site in 2005 didn’t get any answers. The head of the expedition died of a heart attack – a tragedy that some believed was a bad omen.

Still, the scientists continued to examine the area. Subsequent expeditions in the years that followed (2006, 2008, 2010) were more successful. Gathered material from the site showed that the crater formed around 500 years ago (way earlier than the Tunguska meteorite) and that it has a zoned ring structure with individual zones formed at different times.

The scientists eventually discarded the meteoritic theory and cryogenic formation hypothesis (suggesting that the cone formed by the freezing of aquifer sequence) and came to the conclusion that the Patom Crater formed by a phreatic (steam) explosion, that happened either during magma emplacement into hydrous rocks or due to the faulting and decompression of heated hydrous rocks.

Despite this, some prefer to believe in more exciting, farfetched explanations like a tiny fragment of a neutron star falling to Earth – so massive that it punched straight through the Earth and out the other side, through the Patom Crater. It’s not completely unrealistic – two similar events happened in 1993 in different parts of the planet, both within a month of each other.

There’s still no explanation for strange events reportedly happening in the crater’s vicinity. Apart from the magnetic anomaly that was detected during one of the first expeditions there is no confirmed evidence that something big is buried in the center of the crater.

Whichever theory one chooses to believe, the crater will most likely remain one of the most mysterious places in Siberia.

The Lost City Of Z: The Strange Mystery Of Colonel Percy Fawcett

Have you ever heard about The Lost City of Z?! Z like Zorro.

James Gray wrote and directed the American biographical adventure film. The release of the film was in 2016 starring Charlie Hunnam as Percy Fawcett and Sienna Miller as his wife, Nina Fawcett.

Supposedly the film is based on a real-life story of Percy Fawcett. He was British geographer, officer, archaeologist and explorer of South America. The film just like the book – “The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon” written by David Grann it seems to have gathered all the sympathies of the audience as a brave explorer and his adventures.

How does this story turn out to be one of the biggest news stories of his day? During his last mission, the whole team including Percy disappeared.

Fawcett was a member of Royal Geographical Society. His first expedition was by the Royal Geographical Society in 1906. Fawcett made seven expeditions between 1906 and 1924. He was 39 years old and he explored the region of Brasil and Bolivia. During the expedition, he claimed to have seen many mysterious species of animals and plants.

According to some researches, Fawcett he formulated theories that he had found traces of a hidden city that he called ‘Z’. He believed the city was located somewhere in Mato Grosso in the region of Brazil. Some researchers thought this part of Mato Grosso was actually the eternal City of gold El Dorado.

In 1920, he found a document in the National Library of Rio de Janeiro called Manuscript 512. The document was written by a Portuguese researcher in 1753. The Manuscript included details of soaring store arches, multi-stored buildings, statues and a temple.

At the beginning of the First World War Fawcett returned to Britain to serve his country. Right after the end of the war, he turned back into his passion – ‘Z’. In fact, he also had an attempt to go on the mission by himself in 1920. The try was a total failure. It resulted in developing a fever and shooting his pack animal while he was ill.

On April 20th, 1925, he went on his mission, in which he was accompanied by his eldest son Jack and Jack’s best and longtime friend, Raleigh Rimell, for an exploratory expedition to find ‘Z’. He received funding from a London-based group of financiers known as the Glove.

He was also accompanied with two Brasilian laborers, two horses, 8 mules and 2 dogs. In the last letter to his wife Nina, he sounded very optimistic. He proclaimed: “We hope to get through this region in a few days… You need have no fear of any failure.” That was the last anyone would ever hear from them again.

Numerous expeditions searched for Fawcett and his team. The journalist Albert de Winon tried to find them with his team, but he either wasn’t seen again. 

There are some doubts that they were killed by local tribes. And some claimed that he and his son Jack became members of a Cannibal tribe. Skeleton was founded in the depth of the forest but after years and years it turned out are not Fawcett’s.

Resolving the mystery after years and years is still status quo. In total, 13 expeditions worked hard to find the lost team. About 100 people lost their lives or disappeared searching for it. What do you think, what happened to Percy Fawcett and his team?

Enoch | The Great Pyramid Mystery

We have been reading and listening about the Great Pyramids of Giza since our childhood whether we are Jews, Christians or belong to the religion, Islam. Although we have got slightly different versions of origins behind those landmarks, at least the world accepts it as one of the miracles on Earth.

Since the dawn of man, the time has been his ruthless enemy. There was nothing man could do to escape his earthly demise.

But the pyramids towering over man and his creations fear no time.

Much has been said about the origins of these mysterious structures, so much that the truth has been concealed within piles of false assumptions.

But an archaic figure has cracked the riddle of both time and pyramid.

His name is Enoch – the man who cheated death to go rule over the otherworldly kingdom of a higher force.

Before departing for these higher beings, Enoch had left a luxuriant cultural heritage for the generations to come.

He wished for them to solve the riddle of time, just like him, so he concealed the answers within his teachings, and within the greatest architectural mystery of present-day – The Great Pyramid of Egypt.

Sumerian and Mayan accounts remind of Enoch as the one who conquered time and who encoded this secret within the time-defying pyramids – his masterpiece.

It is now up to YOU to decipher this timeworn knowledge and garner its unimaginable benefits.

What you are about to discover is likely to steer you on the right path.

General facts about the Pyramids which probably every search site would display includes it’s construction with heavyweight stones. Very heavy at that.

It is to the extent that some fact gatherers also proclaimed those stones could have been used as a boundary wall around the globe. Khufu the Pharoah is generally accepted as the builder of this marvelous piece of art.

The archaeological findings assert the pyramids to be a tomb or safe to the embalmed bodies of the powerful monarchs of the past.

The Egyptologists also claim three of the Pharaohs to be kept in the pyramids. The names of the pharaohs were Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure.

The Sphinx and Great Pyramid

Knowing more about the Pyramids in Egypt had been one of the favorite encounters of the archaeologists of all time.

It was in the 19th century, 1837 to be exact when a British archaeologist, Richard Howard Vyse was known as one of the influential egyptologist dated this gigantic and well-engineered building to have been built in or around 2500 B.C.

He with his team found something about the pyramids that had been under the covers. According to his research, the walls and some of the ceilings had something written in hieroglyphics (Egyptian Writing System).

He proclaimed to find two of the Pharoah’s official monograms on the walls; Khufu and Khnum-Khufu.

On the basis of these revelations, the said Egyptologist imputes the Pharoah as the builder of the Pyramids of Giza.

History has never remained unchallenged for a long time. People are always eager to find something fishy in one’s findings. History is also accused of being biased and not accurate absolutely all the time.

Richard Vyse enjoyed the crown of the first person to date the Pyramids, not for a long time.

Researchers had already been suspicious about Vyse’s proclamation buy it was in the year 2014 that two student archaeologists succeeded to get the samples of the substance which was used in the cartouche of the Pharoah.

The results shook the belief of the world about the Pyramids. The smart students from the University of Dresden confronted Vyse’s finding.

The substance they took for the observation was claimed to be the inscription by the Pharoah himself. According to them, the paint doesn’t date to the 2500 B.C.

The history was manipulated in the hands of the British Egyptologist, Richard Vyse. He and his team added the hieroglyphics later on during the repair of the ancient Pyramids.

The question here arises, why would an archaeologist of such caliber create a hoax?

Research says that Richard Howard Vyse’s expenditure on the whole quest of dating the Pyramids was around 1.3 million dollars.

One of his writings suggests him being failed in finding any hieroglyphics.

However, it was some years later, in his official book, that he found only one cartouche of the Pharoah Khufu.

The inventory Stella proved to be the last nail in the coffin of Richard’s finding.

According to this age-old script on a tablet found near the great Sphinx by another archaeologist Auguste Mariette in the latter half of the 19th century (1858 to be exact), Richard Vyse might not be wise enough in drawing his conclusions about the dating of the Pyramids in Egypt.

The tablet presented the fact that the statues in the Giza complex date back to the era before that of Khufu.

This dating game gets more interesting when more archaeologists came forward and use different methods of dating a historical site.

Recent discoveries about the Great Sphinx suppose it was constructed much before most of the Egyptologists agreed.

The specialists in dating climatic changes assert that the particular stone used in the creation of the Great Sphinx had been a victim to erosion during the famous rainy days in Egypt.

This fact makes the people, interested in the Egyptian history to doubt the construction period of the Great Pyramids too.

The quotation still needs a resolution. If Richard Howard Vyse is pronounced wrong in his findings of the Pyramids then who actually built them?

According to an Arab Historian, Ibrahim-al-Maqrizi, the Great Pyramids were constructed by a king who ruled the world even before the Great Flood, named by Surid Ibn Salhouk. Some sacred books have this name with variations as Enoch and Idris and Hermes.

THOTH

Ancient legends let us know more about the character of Enoch. His reign comprised of almost 243 years.

It is clearly mentioned in the Bible that he surely is among those rulers who ruled the world before the Great Flood.

We get more insights into the topic through these legends that Hermes or Enoch had some special powers which enabled him to construct such a wonder, but also from the book Enoch | Great Pyramid Mystery.

It is said that he was warned by angels/gods of a great catastrophic incident in the form of a Flood. He took this as a precaution and start constructing the Pyramids to save the valuable collection that he dreaded to get drowned in the Flood.

Another proof of angels or supernatural powers helped him in the construction of the Pyramids are the written images that are found during research.

There were some objects in the air shown in the images that were helping the builder to complete the task efficiently.

Still, whatever is researched till now might get rebuttals later on. More archaeological excavations might result in something opposite or totally unknown till now.
