The Shadowhunters of the Kentucky Caves

Recently, we have ventured, on several occasions, to the idea of ​​the many mysterious cave systems around the world that house entities or ways of life that most of us would not want to contemplate, let alone meet face to face. One of those locations that may be more mysterious than most is “Hollow Cave,” which is part of Kentucky’s equally mysterious cave systems. And more specifically the “shadow thieves” that some claim reside deep within them.

The strange activity in this place goes back to the beginning of the XVIII century, before the official formation of the United States of America. And what’s more, it seems that this strange activity continues today to a large extent. Furthermore, Kentucky’s cave systems, including the Mammoth Cave National Park, are the largest cave systems in the world. And it seems that much of the underground terrain has not yet been discovered. In fact, according to some, parts of these ancient cave systems have been purposely closed and remain undeclared. And according to one researcher, whose accounts we will examine in a moment, the secret that surrounds the parts of these cave systems is not for the protection of the cave. But purely for the protection of those who dare to enter.

While there is no doubt that many of the legends surrounding the Kentucky caves have their roots in the witchcraft accounts of the early 1700s, the fact that they last so long three centuries later may mean that we should lend more attention to such events. In fact, perhaps such tales as shadow hunters may become more than mere folklore. And, in addition, maybe we should look at some of the other cave systems around the world under a new perspective and from a different perspective, so that they do not become the same.

Hollow Cave – Whose location must remain secret!

The account of Shadowhunters of the hollow cave. Enter the public arena through the researcher and writer, Allen Kopp. And in addition, the incident is one that involves Kopp himself. Before disclosing the details of your account, you cryptically state that the location of the cave in question must remain “a strict secret for reasons I can not tell you about.” Then he goes on to say that this is for the protection of the reader.

What we do know is that the cave is located somewhere in an abandoned quarry, behind a retirement home in Louisville, Kentucky. According to Kopp, the cave would extend for at least a mile, reaching the Cave Hill cemetery. In one stage, there was apparently an entrance to Hollow Cave at the location of the cemetery. Through this entrance, “spring waters” flowed to the nearby lake. A boat is required to reach this entrance (which is now hidden). According to the legends of the area, this lake had about 25 acres and a depth of about twenty feet.

In addition, due to the “quarry blasting”, the terrain towards and in the cave is, at best, “treacherous”. In addition, rocks and quicksand litter the corridors. However, that is not all that resides in cave systems. It is not even the worst. The shadows, which appear without the presence of light, no less, are “what dwells” in the hollow cave. And beyond, according to Kopp, “they are everywhere, but without light, nobody can see them.”

Perhaps even more alarming, these shadows are far from latent. And they are waiting for the opportunity to be complete once more. At the expense of the unfortunate adventurer who dares to enter.

Without a shadow, a person can not exist!

Apparently, the origins of these mysterious shadows of Hollow Cave date back to the early eighteenth century. During this time, when the United States of America was still in the future and the “new world” was still in the process of “settlement” by pilgrims from Europe, witchcraft was particularly widespread. And although the Inquisition had no authority in the new world, many women would find their end among the accusations of witchcraft. While the vast majority of these women were undoubtedly innocent and none deserved the treatment they received in the last moments of their lives, there are some curious and suspicious cases. It would seem that it was not only free enlightened thinkers who wished to practice the finer details of their art and beliefs.

What’s more, it’s not just individual witches who make poultices and potions in the middle of nowhere and far from the majority of the population. Entire witches’ wives existed along the many forests and back roads of the rapidly growing nation that would be the United States.

In the area that would become Louisville, Kentucky at the beginning of the 18th century, in the place where the only entrance to the cave was in the cemetery, a group of witches would meet at night to perform “rituals”. According to area reports, around this time, at least two girls would disappear near the same place. None of them was seen again. In addition, according to reports and legends of the area, a “Countess” of the coven, called “Mary Smith”, which is unlikely to be her real name, would put a curse on many young victims. Including the two young people. She would steal their shadows, a curse from the Black Book of Curses of the “old country.” Without a shadow, a person can not exist.

“They walk among us every day and we do not pay attention to them!”

Kopp himself would investigate these strange legends. In fact, it was this interest and this research that led him to Hollow Cave in the first place. And it is in these black and deep cave systems that the shadows of the unfortunate victims of Mary Smith’s coven resides. At least according to Kopp. And here lies the complexity of such legends.

As Kopp explains, “In the darkness you can not see the hidden shadows. And turning on a light of any kind will not help. As soon as the light emits in a shadow, it ceases to be a shadow. ” And besides, you can not see them anymore. Just like you can not see in the dark. What may happen to our “mortal remains” remains a mystery. As Kopp asks, “did we ever really exist?”

Besides that, Kopp insists that we have all seen these shadow hunters. Responsible for once turning human beings of “flesh and bone” into memories without form and without shadows. According to Kopp, “they walk among us every day and we do not pay attention to them”. In addition, on many occasions, we might even find ourselves talking with such creatures, although again we would not be aware of anything out of the ordinary or out of the ordinary. However, despite this, we must be careful with whom we become friends with. According to the legends, if an unfortunate person befriends such an entity, he is likely to lose his shadow. And ultimately his soul.

These entities that steal the shadows are the true witches of the legends. Some that can alter their appearance depending on their objective. Instead of the repulsive and pointed-nosed “witches” of fairy tales, these creatures, for example, by attracting a young man, project themselves as a beautiful young woman. So beautiful that most men could not resist its charm. Or his seductive and fatal attack.

A perpetual state of nothingness, watching and waiting!

Once these mortal entities have their soul, they also have the shadow of a person. These shadows are “hidden” and reside in the darkness of the hollow cave.

Without a doubt it is an interesting concept. Without light, there can be no shadows. As Kopp himself asked, “do we really ever exist”? Are we not more than shadows and projections? Could this explain the obsession in multiple ancient texts of “light” and how important it is? Could it be esoteric information and wisdom about the true nature, state and existence of humanity?

Perhaps what is most chilling, certainly for those who wish to explore such cave systems is that these “Shad-O-Cavo” caves are present throughout the United States, and even in the world. And what is more, they are full of the shadows of those who have disappeared. These shadows, in their perpetual state of non-existence, await, seeking an opportunity to exist once more. As much as we can not see these shadows, they can not see us either. However, they can “feel” a living presence.

According to Kopp’s research, the average temperature of a typical cave is 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The average temperature of the human body, on the other hand, is around 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. It is this change in temperature, almost like a supernatural heat sensor, that alerts these shadow entities to a human presence. And the opportunity for them to take control of a human body and live once more.

As extravagant and truly strange as this notion is to many, perhaps it would be linked to the absolute plethora of “missing persons” in this part of the world. In fact, there is a wave of theories about where the missing people are. And who or what is behind his disappearance. Maybe some are victims of shadow hunters?

Self Proclaimed Alien Contactee George Van Tassel Detailed in FBI Files

The American author and ufologist once claimed to have been in contact with an extraterrestrial from Venus.

A controversial figure in the annals of ufology, Van Tassel was an accomplished aircraft mechanic and flight inspector who worked for various firms between 1930 and 1947 before retiring to the desert.

He rose to prominence as a key figure of interest in 1953 after claiming that he had been awoken one night by an alien from Venus named Solgonda. The being allegedly invited him aboard its spacecraft where Van Tassel was telepathically gifted the plans for a device called the “Integratron” which was said to be capable of rejuvenating the human body.

The following year, he and a few others began building the device out in the desert.

The Integratron – structure (or device) built by George-Van-Tassel

Said to be capable of not only rejuvenation but time travel and anti-gravity as well, the “Integratron” was built on what Van Tassel claimed was “an intersection of powerful geomagnetic forces that, when focused by the unique geometry of the building, will concentrate and amplify the energy required for cell rejuvenation.”

The device resembled a strange domed wooden structure which lacked any screws or nails.

Van Tassel himself died in 1978 of a heart attack, leaving the device unfinished and non-functional.

Missing European Teenager Found Dead in Malaysian Jungle Under Mysterious Circumstances – Another Missing 411 Case?

A Royal Malaysian Police officer points to a map showing the search and rescue operation area

Details concerning the discovery of the body of missing Irish-French teenager in the Malaysian jungle on August 13th point to it being another ‘Missing 411’ case.

15-year-old Nora Quoirin was on holiday in Malaysia with her two younger siblings and their parents, staying at the Dusun eco-resort in Negeri Sembilan state.

Situated at a trailhead on the west side of the Berembun Forest Reserve, the resort is a mere 35kms as the crow flies from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, but is nonetheless surrounded by dense rainforest.

The Quoirin family had arrived there on August 4th, checked-in to their villa at the resort, then Nora was noticed missing by her father at 8am the next morning when he discovered she was not in her room and that the window was open.

As search-and-rescue (SAR) teams began looking for her, Malaysian officials’ working theory was that she had left the bedroom at some point in the early hours, wandered off and become lost. But Nora was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly, an unusual condition in which the forebrain is not fully divided into left and right hemispheres.

Nora’s medical condition meant that she was highly dependent on full-time care and, as her mother insists, “would not have wandered off on her own.” Her siblings, who were sleeping in the same room as her, did not notice her leave, and CCTV cameras at the resort did not capture her leaving. Even if she had been motivated to do so, it’s unlikely Nora could physically negotiate the rigors of leaving the resort and trekking through steep, dense jungle. For these reasons, her parents insisted that local investigating authorities consider that she had been abducted.

Police are keeping an open mind about a criminal angle, but they have reported that:

there was no sign of any intruder entering the property. They did not find any footprints inside the villa or forensic evidence to suggest an unknown person was inside. The entire area around the villa where the family were staying is covered with soggy vegetation and the single-track road leading to the resort is covered with mud.

Had someone entered through the window and climbed a flight of stairs to an upstairs bedroom where Nora was sleeping, it is assumed there would have been traces of mud on the floor. It is because of the lack of evidence of any crime that police treated the case as primarily that of a missing person.

In any event, multiple SAR teams searched the area, as far as 4kms away from the resort, for 9 days until she was found on the 13th. By then over 350 people had been involved in intensive searches of the surrounding jungle and the nearby river, using helicopters with thermal detectors, drones, sniffer dogs, and even local shamans. The spot where she was found is described as “particularly inaccessible” by the local police chief.

At one point in their search, they found footprints, but they didn’t lead to her. They deployed cadaver dogs, but those didn’t pick up her scent. They even had her mother, Meabh Quoirin, record messages that were played on bullhorns as SAR teams trekked through the jungle:

Bizarrely, they found Nora’s body next to the Lata Berembun waterfall, which is located 1.6 miles (2kms) from her villa. What’s more, she was found at a site that had already been searched. It’s not that they missed her the first time; her body was naked and it wasn’t obscured by canopy or other vegetation. It was just… not there – and then several days later, just lying there.

Trekkers searching for Nora. We don’t know how close they are to the ultimate location, but if those boulders are any indication, Nora was likely surrounded by them. Large boulders and boulder fields are a common profile point in Missing 411 cases…

Here’s drone footage of the jungle Nora Quoirin – a 15-year-old from London, England, with a pronounced disability – would have had to trek through to somehow end up at that waterfall:

The location is so remote, her body had to be extracted by helicopter. While she presumably would not have been wearing much more than pajamas or underwear, no clothing or personal items have so far been found. Sean Yeap, who was part of the 25-man SAR team that made the shocking discovery, reported that as they approached her:

It looked like she was sleeping. Her head was resting on her hands. But we all knew she was dead. It was very sad and two women in the group did not want to come close and they started crying.”

A post-mortem carried out on the body by a senior pathologist from Kuala Lumpur was initially judged “inconclusive” as to the cause of death. They’re now saying she “probably died of stress and starvation,” but have so far ruled out “violence, abduction or kidnapping,” and have found “no evidence of foul play for the time being”, although tests are still ongoing.

This must be very sad and traumatic for the family. Unfortunately, such sudden and unexplained disappearances happen all too often.

This case has pretty much all of the profile points seen in Missing 411 cases. These are sets of missing person cases that have been re-investigated and catalogued by retired California police detective David Paulides in his Missing 411 series of books. While his books primarily focus on cases in North America, the author notes that such incidents take place around the world.

Sometimes people vanish without a trace; sometimes they are found, but what these cases typically have in common are several or more profile points from among a set of strange but strikingly similar circumstances:

  • the victim had a disability or impairment of some kind
  • the victim disappears from/is found in a location with large boulders or boulder fields
  • the victim ‘wandered off’ suddenly, unseen
  • the victim is found with no clothing or missing clothing
  • the victim is found at or near water
  • the victim is found a substantial distance away from her last known location, in rough terrain, where it would ordinarily be difficult if not impossible for the victim to walk themselves
  • the cause of death is ‘inconclusive/unknown’
  • the victim is found in a spot that had been previously searched

In fact, the only Missing 411 profile points this case does not (as yet) meet are:

  • a weather event (which typically occurs right around the time of the disappearance or during the early stages of the SAR operation);
  • geographical clustering – whether this occurred in a location with past or concurrent unsolved missing persons cases is unknown.

Perhaps researchers in or familiar with Malaysia can clarify these latter points.

I should mention that the specific detail in Nora Quoirin’s case which spurred me to take a closer look was the description of her having been found naked beside water, looking as if she was sleeping. This description matches one of the female cases featured in Paulides’ recent documentary, Missing 411: The Hunted.

In fact, one subset of cases Paulides catalogues in North America is missing hunters, who are typically armed, healthy men, very familiar with the outdoors, and even the specific location they disappeared from. So it can happen to anyone, but the best – and perhaps the only – defense against something like this happening to you or someone you know is awareness of the phenomenon

In the meantime, we can only wish the Quoirin family well as they grieve their daughter, and encourage readers to familiarize themselves with the phenomenon of mysterious disappearances.

Mysteries

Copper bullets were discovered in limestone (age about 70 million years)

In Sevastopol, incomprehensible inclusions were discovered in rock, which is more than 70 million years old.

The head of the enterprise, whose employees discovered the find, Sergei Chumak, said that the stone was mined at a depth of about 100 meters. This breed belongs to very old layers.

A block of limestone began to be cut into pieces and strange objects were discovered in its bowels. “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” reports that they are definitely of artificial origin.

Experts concluded that these “artifacts” very much resemble arrowheads or bullets. Two of them are crescent-shaped and slightly flattened. The metal resembles copper, but for now it is impossible to say for sure without a special chemical analysis.

Other fragments were also found nearby, which in appearance resemble wooden fragments. They have grown quite a long time into stone and oxidized.

Workers of the enterprise noted that this is the first time that entire products have been discovered.

The age of the rocks is approximately 70 million years. Back then, dinosaurs still roamed the earth. The first person who could do something with his own hands appeared only about 3 million years ago. People began to process metal even later.
