What They Discovered in Egypt Should NEVER Have Been Found! (video)

What They Discovered in Egypt Should NEVER Have Been Found! (video) 86

Lord Carnarvon had planned this expedition for years. A fanatical Egyptologist and amateur archaeologist, he had the heard the tales of the treasure laden tombs of the Pharaohs, and as the years advanced, the 57 year old planned his biggest expedition to date – to seek the fabled tomb of the Boy King, Tutankhamen.

During the frantic days in the lead up to his departure for Luxor, Lord Carnarvon received a message from one of the most revered mystics of the time, Count Hamon. This message was not one of best wishes or Godspeed as you would expect prior to the embarkation of such an endeavour. It was a cryptic warning which read;

‘Lord Carnarvon not to enter tomb. Disobey at peril. If ignored will suffer sickness. Will not recover. Death will claim him in Egypt.’

Lord Carnarvon knew all about the legendary curse of the Pharaohs, and was in fact so concerned about the warning that he solicited the services of a fortune teller on at least two occasions. Each time he received the same message – the news that he faced impending death in circumstances described as ‘mysterious’… yet here he stood in the Boy Kings tomb, surrounded by untold wealth (and several nervous native workers). As he raised his eyes above the solid gold coffin that cradled the remains of the King, he spied an inscription in the hieroglyphic script of the ancient and powerful Egyptian race….

It is said that the inscription was deciphered later, in private so that it didn’t alarm the local workforce that Carnarvon had employed to excavate the tomb. Never the less, his heart must have skipped a beat at the words:

‘Death Will Come To Those That Disturb the Sleep of the Pharaohs’

Two months later, far away in a country mansion in Hampshire, UK, a dog began to howl. So mournful were its plaintive cries that it roused the entire household from their midnight slumber and no matter how they tried to comfort it the poor thing was inconsolable.

Thousands of miles away in his room at the Hotel Continental in Cairo, the now celebrated Lord Carnarvon awoke in his room and said ‘I feel like Hell….’

His companions called for his son, but by the time he arrived, Carnarvon was unconscious. Carnarvons son would later recall ‘… the lights went out all over Cairo… we lit candles, and we prayed…’

Thousands of miles away in England, Lord Carnarvons faithful dog, finally exhausted, lay down and die – and in Cairo so too died Lord Carnarvon.

The cause of death was recorded as pneumonia, caused by an infected mosquito bite. Cairo was unlikely to have been a particularly hygienic place at the time of Carnarvons visit, and death from infected wounds may not have been as uncommon as they are today.

But shortly after the untimely and tragic demise of the English Lord, Death again visited the Hotel Continental…

A leading member of the Tutankhamen expedition and archaeologist, American born Arthur Mace complained of tiredness and suddenly sank into a coma. He was dead before the doctors even had time to establish what was wrong with him.

A close friend of Lord Carnarvon, George Gould rushed to Egypt when he heard of his friend’s death. He was shown the Pharaohs tomb by the remaining members of the expedition. He collapsed with a fever the very next day, and within twelve hours, he too was dead.

Radiologist Archibald Reid who performed X-rays on the mummified body of the Boy King was sent home to England complaining of exhaustion. He died shortly afterwards.

And so the body count continues…

Richard Bethall, Carnarvons personal secretary during the expedition was found dead in his bed from heart failure. Joel Wool, British Industrialist – one of the first people outside of the expedition to be invited to view the tomb – died shortly afterwards, also from a mysterious fever.

Within six years of the discovery and excavation of Tutankhamen’s Tomb, twelve of the original team of excavators present on the 17th February 1923 had perished. At least twenty two people connected to the expedition in some way had died prematurely including Lady Carnarvon, and the Earls half brother, who committed suicide whilst temporarily insane.

So was it ‘The Curse’? And if so, just how powerful was it?

With such a high body count, it seems wrong somehow to blame mere coincidence for the many deaths associated with the opening of Egypt’s most celebrated tomb, and over the years many learned men and women have studied each individual case. Theories, as always, abound.

The ancient Egyptians were indeed adept at many things, and their knowledge of the use of poisons was advanced. Could the team of archaeologists have inhaled poison used in the wall paintings of the tomb? Or maybe the tomb itself was a breeding ground for bacteria which infected the team and then dispersed?

A rather more elaborate theory states that Uranium was used in the construction of the tomb, and that the excavators suffered some form of radiation poisoning.

Ultimately, belief is a curious and powerful thing. It is the basis of religion, of superstition and phobia. It governs our everyday life, influences our behaviour and is the fundamental basis of our very survival. It is the unbreakable Kevlar-like fibre of our very existence which makes us all unique. It is also the basis of all magical practice.

The two factors of successful hexing or cursing are simple – the intent or ‘will’ of the person casting, and the belief or even gullibility of the victim. In effect, the person originating the effect – be it a curse, spell or hex, call it what you will – must believe in the reality that they will achieve their aim. Likewise, the victim must have knowledge of the effect, be that consciously or unconsciously knowing the will of the person wishing to cause the effect to do them harm. After this point, when the rules (or belief) is set or in place, a chain of events is set in motion within the victims sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, which in extreme cases can cause death.

Lord Carnarvon is believed to have died from an infected insect bite – this much we know. As stated before, this may have not been unusual in 1920’s Egypt, the complications may even have been aggravated by exposure to poisons or bacteria within the tomb, but that doesn’t explain the fate of the other unfortunate expedition members, or others who later became involved with the relics.

In 1966, Mohammed Ibriham, Egypt’s director of antiquities was asked by his government to prepare the Tutankhamen treasures for an exhibition in Paris, France. Ibriham, seemingly a suspicious man was not enamoured by the idea. In fact he is said to have dreamed that if the Pharaohs treasures left the shores of Egypt he would suffer some personal tragedy. Mr Ibriham is said to have been knocked over and killed by a car after an unsuccessful meeting with government officials to try to postpone the Paris exhibition.

Three years later, Richard Adamson, Lord Carnarvons security guard during the expedition, and the last living member of the expedition appeared on British television to explode the myth of the Pharaohs Curse. It was his third attempt to dispel the legend. The first time, his wife had died within twenty four hours, the second, his son broke his back in a plane crash. Adamson, addressing the British viewers said “ I don’t believe the myth for one moment.”

At a later interview from his hospital bed, recovering from head injuries sustained when he was thrown from his taxi during the car crash which occurred as he left the television studios (a swerving lorry managed to avoid crushing his head by mere inches as he lay in the road), Mr Adamson said “Until now I refused to believe that my families misfortunes had anything to do with the curse. Now I’m not so sure.”

In 1972, King Tut claimed another victim. Dr Gamal Mehrez, director of antiquities at Cairo Museum, and successor of the ill-fated Mohammet Ibriham, was in charge of crating the golden ‘Death Mask’ for an exhibition at London’s British Museum. Dr Mehrez was a staunch disbeliever in such superstitious nonsense as curses. “I more than anyone in the world have been involved with the tombs and mummies of the pharaohs, yet I’m still alive.” He said. “I am the living proof that all the tragedies associated with the pharaohs have been pure coincidence”. Then he added, quoting Richard Adamson almost word for word – “I don’t believe in the curse for one minute.” Dr Mehrez successfully organized the removal of the priceless treasures onto Lorries to begin the long journey to London, and that evening he died. He was 52. The cause of death was recorded as circulatory collapse.

The organizers of the exhibition decided to proceed with the arrangements regardless, and so the relics were loaded onto an RAF transport command aircraft and shipped to the UK. Within five years, six of the crew had either suffered ill fortune, or were dead.

Chief Pilot, Flight Lieutenant Rick Laine and Flight Engineer Ken Parkinson were both fit men. Parkinson is said to have suffered several heart attacks after the flight, each one at the same time of the year. Finally in 1978 he suffered a fatal one. He was 45. Laine had died two years before him, also of a heart attack. He was 40.

Chief Technical Officer Ian Landsdowne jokingly (and very disrespectfully) kicked the crate containing the death mask during the flight. He joked “I’ve just kicked the most expensive thing in the world!” Five months later a ladder inexplicably collapsed underneath him, and his severely broken leg was in plaster for months.

Aircraft Navigator Flight Lieutenant Jim Webb’s house was destroyed by fire and he lost all his possessions. A girl also aboard the plane during the flight had to leave the RAF after undergoing a very serious operation.

Steward Brian Rounsfell disclosed how the crew had played cards on the coffin crate, and had dared each other to sit on it. Rounsfell suffered two heart attacks over the next four years – he was 35.

The above cases are infamous purely because the tomb was said to be cursed, and as such appeal to our superstitious nature and beliefs as ‘proof’ that curses really do exist. The reality is that the examples above illustrate probably a very small percentage of the thousands of people who have been involved with the tomb and its contents over the many years since its discovery – we don’t know what fate befell every individual, every workman or examiner. Some of the cases cited here defy research as to whether or not they actually occurred or are mere rumours or half truths. It’s also possible that other ‘unusual’ events occurred where the connection between the event and the relics was not made, and have therefore not been recorded – we will never know. To declare everyone involved in the excavation of King Tuts tomb suffered some serious calamity or death would be both short-sighted and untrue after all, the co-leader of the expedition, Howard Carter died of natural causes in 1939, and as far as I can find suffered no hardships at all.

Of course, he may have not believed just that little bit more…

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us 87

Shadow creatures are neither ghosts nor people, and we know these creatures as shadow people. It seems that the “shadow” know about our location and want us to feel fear or even panic in their presence.

People-shadows or shadow people are paranormal dark barely visible silhouettes known to mystics for a long time. They look like dark humanoid creatures or barely noticeable ghosts, often seen only with peripheral vision. Witnesses claim that shadow people only catch a few seconds, eyewitnesses also say that they looked into the eyes of shadow people and their eyes shone with a red light, like demons.

Shadow people can take different shapes and sizes: look like full-fledged people or even like animals. But most often these are thin tall strange figures. Be that as it may, they appear only for a moment, quickly evaporating into the air. Unfortunately, they can harm humans, which was proven in 2013.

The video posted on the web had confirmation of the existence of a shadow man who was visible for over a minute! An unknown silhouette knocks down a man walking down the corridor and drags him across the floor for several seconds. After some time, it also suddenly disappears, releasing the person. As it became known, the building where the striking phenomenon was filmed has complaints from tenants who more than once meet paranormal events in their home.

There are very few known cases though of adverse events caused by shadow people. In most cases, they appear or disappear as soon as they are found.

Shadow creatures can be spotted out of the corner of your eye. Some people who saw them or knew about their presence say that they are alien creatures, slipping in and out of our field of vision. In the eyewitness accounts, the observation of the recurrence of shadow manifestations is especially often mentioned.

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

Whether they are an elusive race that has always coexisted with us is an interesting theory suggesting that these creatures are frequent guests in our lives.

Paranormal researchers consider shadow people to be malevolent supernatural entities. Perhaps shadow people will not cause physical pain, but they can affect you emotionally, for example, cause fear – this gives them energy.

Skeptics and scientists believe that shadow people are optical illusions or hallucinations that appear under the influence of drugs or physiological changes in the body. When the left temporo-parietal brain is stimulated, these strange images are created.

Often the appearance of these shadows is inextricably linked with sleep paralysis, when a person is, as it were, between sleep and reality. Scientifically, this is called hypnogogy. Hypnogogia is called “the phenomenon of the face in the dark” for such hallucinations.

All eyewitnesses, regardless of where they live, talk about the same sensations in the presence of shadow creatures. Fear is a cold feeling that overcomes a person at this moment.

Some people say they even saw the eerie red eyes of these dark personalities that momentarily appear anywhere and demonstrate the ability to walk on the walls of enclosed spaces, which defies the general laws of physics.

Whoever they are, they feed on human energy, emit bad vibrations and give negative emotions. We do not know how they got into our dimension, about the purpose of their mission and how they affect the human essence. The main thing is to stop feeling fear in their presence and not to “feed” anyone with your precious energy.

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits 88

A ghost hunter explained how to summon ghosts and when is the best time to do it according to The Daily Star.

Jade Capasso explores hotels, inns, historical places to allegedly reveal the spirits and ghosts that are present in them. She shares her discoveries on the YouTube channel Ghost Club Paranormal. The girl is sure that you can also talk with spirits.

The 28-year-old ghost hunter is confident that you can talk to ghosts and spirits using a voice recorder. A particularly good time for this, according to her, is the eve of All Saints’ Day – Halloween.

 “I think there is more activity during Halloween. More people believe in the other world, ”she said.

She recalled that Halloween pumpkin is an invariable attribute and symbol of the holiday. People decorate their home with funny, scary, and sometimes even terrifying faces.

 “I’m sure there will be more sessions and many will use Ouija boards,” she says.

To connect with the “other world”, you can go to a famous haunted place, says Kapassa. She also recommends checking your home for ghosts.

To hear a ghost, the girl recommends using special equipment. 

After all, ghosts, she said, emit sounds at ultra-low frequencies that are not perceived by the human ear. You can hear them, as she notes, only on audio recordings.

The girl says that you need to leave the digital voice recorder in a room where paranormal activity is observed all night, or ask questions and wait for an answer.

“Ask questions, and who knows, you might hear a disembodied voice answering you,” says Jade.

According to her, there is no need to rush, because the spirits must be given enough time to respond.

“You probably won’t hear them in real time. But if you listen to the recording, you might hear someone from the underworld, ”she said.

A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder – you can only see it in the photo

A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder - you can only see it in the photo 89

A Scottish resident took a photo of an abandoned building, and then could not believe his eyes when he looked at the finished photograph. From there the woman’s face was looking at him, but the man is sure: there was no one in the ruins of the house. Finding an explanation for what he saw was not easy.

A photographer from Scotland, who wished to remain anonymous, decided to arrange an unusual photo session, Unilad writes.

His choice fell on several abandoned buildings that are located in one of the parks in the North Ayrshire region. After taking a couple of pictures, he went to the studio to print them, and then looked at the finished result.

Mysticism often happens in abandoned buildings , and the case with a man was no exception. In one photo, the Scotsman saw the ghostly silhouette of a woman looking at him from a window. However, the man assures that there was no one in the building, and he was alone in the ruins.

During the shooting, I did not feel anything unusual or anything otherworldly.

Despite the fact that the woman’s face looks intimidating, he is glad that he managed to capture it. Moreover, the hero of the story shared the frame with all friends who adore mysticism and riddles.

Pay attention to the left window

I’m happy that I was able to capture something that looks like a ghost. I am even proud to be able to show photos to people who love riddles.

Many people, according to the photographer, are inclined to believe that this is a ghost, who love to talk to children so much, although the author of the picture himself is in no hurry to draw conclusions. He even looked at the frame under a microscope, but never came to the truth.

You can, of course, speculate, but the human brain makes us see familiar traits everywhere, especially if we look at them long enough.

Moreover, the photographer, according to him, does not really believe in ghosts and other mystical phenomena.

I don’t like the term paranormal. As for ghosts, I don’t know if they exist. I don’t even know how to define them. What is it? Energy?
