There have been SEVERAL documented cases of mysterious disappearances of persons in connection with subsurface and/or aerial phenomena. One such account involves the ancient Greek «Temple of Apollo«, in Hierapolis (now Pamukkale), Turkey. This city was once part of the ancient Grecian empire, which covered an extensive area in and around the Mediterranean sea. One article which appeared in the January, 1989 issue of OMNI Magazine, referred to strange disappearances which had taken place in a cavern adjacent these ancient temple ruins. The article quoted from the writings of the ancient Greek philosopher ’Strabe’ (who lived between 63 B.C. and 24 A.D.), to the effect that animals would often enter the cave and never return.
Also MANY PEOPLE throughout history who went past the mouth of the cave never returned. The article also quoted one Sheldon Aaronson, a professor of microbiology at Queens College, N.Y., who told OMNI that several Australian students had entered the cave and disappeared just a few days before his visit in 1987. Sheldon stated:
«The Turkish government put iron bars over the opening to prevent other people from ever going in. As far as we knew, the Australians were never seen again.»
According to the article, the Greeks believed that the cavern was an opening into the «land of the dead ruled by the gods of the underworld.»
As for the possibility of an underground subterranean ’world’, scientists tell us that the lowest depths of the earth (upper and lower mantles) contain temperature and pressure extremes so great that physical life could not possibly exist there. Some however believe that there is evidence for the existence of a vast global network of CRUSTAL geothermal and hydrothermal cavities, some of these having been connected to the ancient deluge wherein the «…fountains of the great deep were broken up». This allegedly occurred as magma-heated stratas of subterranean water-filled caverns (brought to enormous pressures by an expanding and over-heated mantle) suddenly burst through the crust (Gen. 7:11), like a pressure boiler of enormous proportions suddenly splitting it seams.
Looking at a map of the ocean floors, one can see what seems to be a «seam«, similar to the seams of a baseball, which in ancient times apparently split or ripped its way around the entire planet. These «seams» are known as «rifts» in the ocean floor. Some have claim that the underlying basaltic rock layers within these ancient and gigantic global aqua-systems were dissolved into these global subterranean reservoirs as their temperatures and pressures increased. Eventually the pressure became so great that at the weakest point this global layer of mineralized water broke through, and the tear made its way around the world at an incredible rate. It is not difficult to imagine that such a cataclysm may have caused the sinking of ancient land masses as the underlying mega-aquifers emptied out and the overlying layers lost their support. Vast amounts of this overheated water — which had previously been dissolving the basaltic rock layers surrounding it — exploded to the surface, thus explaining why the oceans now contain a large percentage of ’salt’ content.
These underlying chambers, many of which collapsed yet many of which apparently remained intact, are believed to exist throughout the moho and crustal regions of the planet, just above the upper mantle. This ’Mohorovicic Discontinuity’, or boundary point between the upper crust and lower mantle, is ’on the average’ a dozen or so miles below the surface — or from a few miles below the ocean trenches to a few dozen miles below large mountain ranges. So it is possible that caverns of immense extent, containing life-supporting conditions, may conceivably exist to depths of 40-50 miles, especially under the larger mountain ranges. Below that (beyond the Moho) the pressure and temperature extremes would make physical life unbearable, if not impossible.
Other higher-level cavities created through geo-seismic activity may also exist, cavities which may dwarf the Flint Ridge-Mammoth Caves of Kentucky or New Mexico’s Carlsbad-Lechuguilla cavern systems. It is suggested that THESE may contain conditions sufficient to support physical life.
(i.e. air, water, subterranean flora and fauna, and perhaps even electro- magnetically-induced illumination diffused throughout the underground «atmosphere» through a phenomena somewhat similar to the effect produced by the Aurora Borealis or «Northern Lights». In this case it has been suggested that powerful electro-magnetic currents moving through the earth and interacting with the underground atmosphere may account for the diffused twilight illumination permeating the underground atmosphere, as has been described in various accounts of those who claim to have managed to find their way into the more extensive and deeper cavern systems).
There have been several accounts concerning individuals who have encountered human beings — some who spoke the native language and others who spoke a language entirely foreign — within deep underground tunnels and caverns. There are many such cases, but we will concern ourselves with only one of these at this point (and will reserve the others for later in the text)… an incident which may be one the most well-known and most well- documented accounts of this type:
Sometime during the 12 century, a monastic chronicler in England by the name of «Gervase of Tilbury» recorded a strange account of two «children» who suddenly appeared near a small town near Bury St. Edmunds, England. The account was also recorded in the writings of several other chroniclers who lived at the time or sometime afterwards. These include: William of Newbury — HISTORIA RERUM ANGLICARUM, written in Yorkshire, England (1136-1198?); Abbot Ralph of Coggeshall — CHRONICON ANGLICARUM; and also the chroniclers Giraldus Cambrensis and Walsingham. The account was more recently related in FLYING SAUCERS UNCENSORED, by Harold T. Wilkins (Citadel Press., New York, N.Y. 1955., pp. 97-98). From their combined accounts we can piece together the following bizarre story which the chroniclers swore to be true:
One warm, sunny day in the 12th century some farmers and other residents of the small town of Wolfpittes, England (some seven miles distant from the larger village of Burry St. Edmunds) were startled to see two young children wandering around, as if disoriented, in some ancient ’pits’ or ’trenches’ known to the locals as the ’Wolf-Pitts’ — after which the small village had taken it’s name. These excavations were ancient, but no one seemed to know when or by whom they were dug, but the consensus was that they were at least partly artificial, and very ancient. The most shocking thing about the children, which the residents of Wolfpittes encountered, was that they had skin which was olive-green in color, yet the rest of their features were as human as the average Englishman.
The villagers attempted to communicate with the children but were unsuccessful, as they soon discovered that the young boy and girl spoke a language which was completely unfamiliar to the villagers. The townspeople had compassion on the children and took them to the village and offered them various different kinds of food, all of which they seemed unfamiliar with and which they refused. However, when they were shown some beanstalks, they took them greedily, but instead of opening the bean-pods, the children attempted to open the stalks themselves, as if they had been accustomed to opening stalks in this way (apparently a practice they had learned in the land from which they emerged). Upon finding nothing in the stalks, the children began to weep. Unfortunately, the shock of entering our world was too much for the young boy, and even though he became partly acclimated to other forms of food, he nevertheless became weaker and weaker and finally died as few years afterwards. The young girl, however, adjusted quite well to her new surroundings. In fact she eventually grew into a mature, beautiful woman, and later married a gentleman from the nearby town of Kings Lynn. As time passed, her husband patiently instructed her in the complexities of the English language, and soon she was able to communicate fairly well, and the story she told of where she had come from and how she had arrived in our ’world’ with her brother was even more incredible.
She told her husband that her people all had skin similar to hers, or rather similar to what her skin had once been like, as over a period of years and exposure to the outer elements the greenish tinge had left her. She described her world as a cavernous, subterranean country of enormous size, a country which went by the name of «St. Martin’s Land.» The land in which she lived was described as ’twilight’ in nature, yet there was a large underground river, on the other side of which there was another land more brightly lit. One day, she and her brother were herding some type of underground animal when they heard something like the sound of ’bells’ emerging from one of the cave passages or tunnels which lined the perimeter of this underground land. Out of extreme curiosity, they entered this tunnel and followed the passage upwards for what could have been a few days, although in their underground land it is probable that they did not have any concept of what ’day’ or ’night’ was. After their long and weary journey up the steep incline they suddenly emerged into the brilliant sunlight of the British countryside. The change from their twilight world was dramatic, and the children walked around in the pits or trenches starved, half-blinded and disoriented. They shortly afterwards attempted to re-locate the small opening through which they had emerged, but were unable to do so, because of the blinding light. At about this point the farmers found the children and took them to the village.
A somewhat similar incident ’may’ have been repeated in the small hamlet of Banjos (or Banos) Spain in August of 1887, several hundred years after the incident at Wolfpittes and several hundred miles distant. We state that it MAY have been repeated to some degree simply because there appears to be some confusion surrounding the Banjos account, apparently due to the possibility that some well-meaning researcher may have confused the two incidents, in essence attributing some of the events that in fact took place near Wolfpittes with the Banjos account. Basically, the Banjos incident reportedly involved two children with greenish skin who emerged from a CAVERN near the town (not ’pits’ or ’excavations’), spoke an unknown language, and so on, although the details are sketchy. Some of the accounts of the Banjosincident repeat the Wolfpittes story almost verbatim, as if, as we said, someone somewhere mistakenly confused the two events, perhaps due to a lack of detail in the Banjos, Spain account.
Whatever the case, it seems that SOMETHING of this general nature also occurred in this Spanish hamlet, even though the exact sources of that particular story are more difficult to trace than are the sources for the Wolfpittes account. Paris Flammonde refers to this account in his book: THE AGE OF FLYING SAUCERS (Hawthorn Books, N.Y., p. 197), having learned it from an article in the September, 1967 issue of ORBIT Magazine, which in turn gave credit to an article in the Vol. XII, August 1967 issue of Dan Fry’s UNDERSTANDING Magazine. Fry claimed that he got the story from an article by John Macklin which appeared in the December, 1966 issue of GRIT Magazine. The account also appears in John Macklin’s book STRANGE DESTINIES (Ace Books., N.Y.); Jacques Bergier’s LES EXTRA- TERRESTRES; and the July 22, 1970 issue of the British periodical ’WEEKEND’.
There are those who believe that similar cavern systems exist below the Southwest United States, and that the Dulce base in New Mexico was originally an entrance to one of these ancient underground kingdoms. Sources say that the humans, possibly the ancestors of the Pueblos, once ruled this underground kingdom. One abductee reported an «abduction» wherein he saw himself traveling in a craft through an immense cavern below the Grand Canyon. In one end of the cavern were the «ruins» of an ancient city, and in one of the walls he could see what appeared to be an elevator type of device that ascended the wall and disappeared through the roof.
In 1994 a file appeared over the Internet which originated from a person who claimed to be involved in a secret group of Hopi Indian youth, boys and girls, who were being trained by Hopi elders and a race of human-like aliens code-named the «BLUES«. The Blues were «star warriors» who were in conflict with the Grays, which they referred to as the «Children of the Serpent«, a race of psychic vampires which feed off the passions, and in some cases the blood, of human beings. The Blues (the «Children of the Feather«) were one of several human-like races that had warned our government from having anything to do with the Grays in the first place. The reptilians have established themselves in the underground systems below the 4-corners area, in the VERY SYSTEMS from which the Hopis themselves were driven by the reptilian sorcerers in ancient times. The Hopis emerged through a cave in the Grand Canyon and, according to Hank Krastman who claims to have visited the underground city of Palatkwapi below Arizona, the Hopis today (both surface and subsurface dwelling) still consider the Grays of the 4-corners systems and elsewhere to be their enemies. Krastman says that the residents of Palatkwapi maintain some interaction with the neo-Mayan races of Mt. Shasta who maintain a large underground city near Prescott/Groom Creek, Arizona. They have also interbred with members of the Nordic or ’Pleiadean’ Federation.
In relation to Dulce, researcher Paris Flammonde once gave what appears to be a description of the joint Illuminati-Gray ’Dulce’ underground base-network below the 4-corners area, as described by researcher James Moseley:
«…The intimations of strange pressure groups, purportedly intent upon obscuring the true meaning of Flying Saucers, began arising in the early 1950’s, the most famous of these being the ’three men in black’ and the ’silence conspiracy,’ which Major Keyhoe and others regard as an ominous element functioning within the Air Force. During the summer of 1956, SAUCER NEWS editor James Moseley postulated an addition to this enigmatic company in the June, 1956, issue of his magazine. Theorizing that Flying Saucers were originally being researched by the United States in 1946, were capable of speeds exceeding four thousand miles an hour, and were operating from a super- secret subterranean base below a southwestern state, he continued:
«’The whole project is so highly classified that ordinary military pilots and even the Air Force’s saucer investigators on Project Blue Book could not possibly know about it. In fact, this type of saucer IS NOT built by the American Government AS WE ORDINARILY UNDERSTAND THE WORD ’GOVERNMENT.’ As fantastic as this might sound… these saucers are actually built, operated, and maintained by an organization which is ENTIRELY SEPARATE from the military and political branches of the Government that we know about. Although a handful of people at the very top of the Government know about the existence of this project, they have no direct contact with it… I shall call this secret project, ’The Organization.’»
James Moseley, according to Flammonde, «considerably elaborated on the activities of this shadowy cabal with some very extravagant revelations.»
In his book «ON THE SHORES OF ENDLESS WORLDS«, Andrew Tomas relates the following account:
«The Jesuit Agnelio Oliva (1572-1542) recorded the words of an old Inca quipu reader to the effect that the real Tiahuanaco was a subterranean city exceeding the one above ground in vastness. It was believed that the entrance to the underground apartments could be gained through four tunnels. Last century one passage was evidently found as treasure hunters managed to get in, to look for gold, but only one came out. He brought out with him two gold bars but left behind his sanity. After this incident the Peruvian government decided to wall up the cave entrance…»
This tunnel, according to other sources, was actually hidden among the ruins of Fort Sacsahuaman outside of and above the city of Cusco, Peru. The explorers allegedly found their way into ancient treasure caves beneath the Temple of the Sun in Cusco, and most of them subsequently became lost in the dark labyrinthine maze, except for the man who returned with two gold bars. There are however ’rumors’ that the tunnels beneath Cusco eventually connect with others below Lima, Peru — as well as different parts of the Peruvian Andes including the Lake Titicaca region.
Dr. Clifford Wilson, in his ’UFOS AND THEIR MISSION IMPOSSIBLE’ (1974., Signet Books, N.Y.) relates the following account, submitted by Police Officer and ’abductee’ Harold Schirmer (spelled ’Shermer’ by others), who was the subject of experimentation by the alien group known as the ’greys’:
«He…claimed that he was told where UFO bases were. Although he could not understand it, he stated there were UFO bases both underground and underwater. He wondered if perhaps these beings were careful to guard their own interests, for they gave no information that would actually endanger themselves. However, they did say that one base was out in the ocean away from Florida, out toward Bermuda. This is in the area of the infamous ’Bermuda Triangle’ where so many ships and even aircraft have mysteriously disappeared during this century.
«Schirmer was further told that this particular vehicle was an observation craft, and that the occupants had been sent to collect samples of animals and vegetation. He remembered also that he was told that SOME HUMANS HAD BEEN USED in breeding experiments. He was convinced that something was done to the BRAIN PATTERNS of those who were captured, and was definite that he himself had been changed — as was evidenced by his earlier withholding of details of the sighting. By his obedience he had become almost robotlike, ready to do whatever they told him to do.»
On July 14th, 1974 an article by Stoney Brakefield appeared in the Pennsylvania newspaper, NEWS EXTRA, reporting an incident which allegedly took place in 1944 near this small coal mining town, yet because of it’s nature it had been covered-up for nearly 40 years until the son of the mining inspector who investigated the incident revealed it as his father (then deceased) had related it to him.
This mining inspector and a fellow investigator had been called-in to look into a «cave-in» in one of the Dixonville mines. About 15 men had either been killed or turned up missing altogether in the strange disaster. Once inside the mine the inspectors eventually came across the first victim. Although lying under a broken timber surrounded by some fallen rocks and rubble, they concluded that the cave-in certainly could not have been large enough to kill the man. The inspectors were shocked to find that the body of the miner was lacerated with claw-like markings from some unknown creature. They continued and found a few other bodies, all dead and some of which had similar claw-like marks covering them. Several other miners had vanished, and were nowhere to be seen in spite of subsequent diggings. This tragedy apparently took place after the miners had broken into an ancient tunnel of unknown origin deep in the mine. This tunnel (at the time the inspectors didn’t fully recognize it as the recently discovered passage or drift) was then followed by the inspectors at approximately a 45 degree angle downwards for about half a mile until they arrived at a ’room’ which ’seemed’ to be the end of the passage. At this point the passage behind them just ’happened’ to collapse (many accounts indicate that these underground creatures can manipulate the earth and rock and create «cave-ins» at will, as was the case in the Maltese incidentmentioned earlier in the text).
A follow-up team was sent in to intersect the inspectors while this was taking place. This other crew followed the tracks of the inspectors into the mysterious tunnel and eventually found the «cave-in» and began digging through in hopes of finding the now missing investigators. In the meanwhile one inspector (the father of the man who released the story to the press) suddenly felt something like «hot breath» on the back of his neck. He closed his eyes, too terrified to see what the ’thing’ was. As the other workers were breaking through, the ’creature’ left by some unseen route, perhaps frightened away. The other inspector who was with him however observed the whole thing and in wild-eyed horror he exclaimed, «That thing was not of this world!»
One account concerning ’the underground’ appeared in an early issue of CAVEAT EMPTOR magazine (P.O. Box 4553., Metuchen, NJ 08820-4533), and spoke of a physical encounter with a subterranean race HUMANS. The account was related by an individual whose girlfriend, ’Laressa’, had phoned him one night. She was quite shaken up and in tears, and told him that a friend of hers at school had invited her to go for a ride with her out into the countryside. This girl friend was somewhat strange, and a loner and would often disappear and be away from school for days or even weeks at a time. As they were driving through the countryside, according to ’Laressa’, this girl drove her car right towards a hill and before she knew what was happening the hill opened up into an underground ’road’ and they eventually found themselves right in the middle of an underground city. She went on to say that the city was inhabited by the ’D-Forces’, a human group who used the symbol of a ’wolf’ (on jewelry, etc.), and who were in conflict with another human group called the ’T-Forces’. Both, she learned, possessed ’UFO’ type craft, and the T-Forces were less powerful but were growing stronger day by day.
Could this somehow tie-in with Richard Shaver’s scenario of an under- ground battle with ’Deros’ and ’Teros’? The only difference would be that Shaver’s ’Teros’ were basically friendly people and his ’Deros’ seemed to be a conglomeration of degenerate human techno-sorcerers whose minds and bodies have been affected by long-term exposure to radiation, who seemed to be in league with a ’race’ power-hungry Atlantean androids that had gone out-of-control thousands of years ago AND what Shaver refers to as the «vermin from space«, a race of reptilian hominoids that are returning to planet earth to reclaim what they allege to be their native planet.
Theodore Illion, in his book ’DARKNESS OVER TIBET’, told of the inhabitants of an underground city beneath Tibet, a city which the author himself claimed to have stumbled on during his extensive travels through the Far East. This underground community was allegedly ruled over by a powerful sorcerer who was part of an international secret society. This overlord kept the inhabitants of the underground city, many of whom were people who had ’disappeared’ from the world above, under complete mind control to the point that they lacked any personality — their eyes were reported by Illion as being vacant and empty, and their lives emotionless and drone-like, much like an ant colony. Or in other words, they acted much like certain of the ’MIB’-like beings who have been encountered by UFO witnesses. This sorcerer was allegedly in contact with an infernal (reptilian?) race via a ’bottomless shaft’ which descended through the city itself. When Ted Illion asked the sorcerer-overlord where the shaft led, he was told that if he found out he would die: «…there are such secrets.» Illion claimed that he barely escaped the hypnotic hold of the sorcerer and fled the city, and after surviving a series of terrifying poltergeist and psychic attacksdirected at him by the sorcerer, he finally found his way back to civilization and safe.
At this point we will quote from one of the many sources describing encounters with what may very well be a remnant of an antediluvian ’tunnel’ network that the Atlanteans or their contemporaries had constructed before the deluge. The following account was given in a letter which was submitted to AMAZING STORIES (which described itself as a science fiction/science fact magazine), Dec. 1946 issue, p. 162. The letter was from a George A. Lehew of (at the time) 1918 W. Newport Ave., Chicago, ILL. Lehew wrote:
«Sirs… I have been a reader of AMAZING STORIES for a very long time… I too, know of one of these entrances into the world below. It is about fifty miles south of Pittsburgh, Pa., in the first range of the Allegheny Mountains. My experiment with the caves have been only partial explorations, consisting of traveling about a mile and a quarter down into the cave itself, and returning. The cave IS VENTILATED from below, and stays at a constant 50 degrees no matter what the outside temperature may be. It is a series of rooms or galleries with narrow passages from one to another. In about the sixth room down, there is a large tree trunk which could not have come from the surface as the stratosphere (sic: ’strata-sphere’? — Branton) is almost completely free from local fault; and it could never have come DOWN through the openings in the cave itself as they were small at the top, and kept getting progressively larger as they got deeper.
«I traveled down as long as I could find comparatively easy travel — about 45 degree descent all the way — and finally came to what I thought must be the end of the cave, for I could see no more openings into rooms, but on closer examination found instead a bore, about six feet across, straight down into solid rock. I turned my flash downward and could see that it must have gone straight down for at least a hundred feet, the sides were perfectly smooth, and the shaft, or bore, in a perfect round — no apparent irregularities anywhere — I had no way of descending any further, so I retraced my steps back up through the different rooms to the top of the mountain where the cave opens into this world. I made discreet inquiries of several old timers in that region, and found that in 1915, or about that year, six surveyors took gear and equipment, and spent a month in exploration of the cave, going 18 miles from the entrance, and down almost five miles below sea level. I have never gone back, but I hope to some day in the future, with escort, equipment, and supplies. I’d certainly love to see the machine that made that bore! If you have any information on other caves in that area, let me know — they too may tie in with this one, though if they do, their connections are very deep. Also, if you can, please describe the equipment that made that vertical shaft. Oh, yes, one more interesting item — the surveyors in their exploration of the cave, distinctly heard the rumble of MACHINERY — but their calculations proved they were nowhere near a large city (surface), and they were too deep for surface noises otherwise. What is the answer?»
Another account also dealing with subsurface phenomena and ’creatures’ appeared in the June, 1945 issue of AMAZING STORIES, in a letter submitted to that magazine by Jerry LaPriore (at the time) of 2024 Pleasant St., Fall River, Mass. The letter stated:
«You asked for stories that might relate to… the caves. My mother was told this story by an old man who said it was true as truth itself: This man and a friend were hunting, agreeing this time to go to a portion of the wood’s to which they did not normally go. They saw a deer and gave chase. It jumped through a clump of bushes and they followed — to find themselves unaccountably in the strangest surroundings. They were in a huge cavern that had numerous passageways leading from it. Before them was a monster-like man they thought was the Devil himself. The monster stared, and the two men stared back. One of them fainted from fear, and the man who told my mother the story dragged the other away in panic, and as he did so, found himself just as mysteriously in the forest again. The old man’s friend died a week later as a result of the shock he had suffered. The old man tried later to find the cave again, but failed. I know this story is true because my mother does not tell fairy tales and because she believes it.»
In April, 1972 a reader submitted a letter to FATE magazine describing what, if true, may be one of the more remarkable ’encounters’ with a subterranean civilization. The letter, which appeared below the heading ’SPIRITS OR SUBTERRANEAN BEINGS’, stated:
«Two years ago my small son Danny and I were playing in his bedroom when we heard a sharp metallic sound as if a large steel hammer had struck the concrete BASEMENT floor three times. It took us so by surprise that Danny began to cry. I was merely curious because I had heard a noise like that several months earlier in or beneath the living room.
«I decided to lie down on the bedroom floor with my ear to it. I clearly heard the roar of MACHINERY or I should say a ’hum.’ As I listened I heard something or somebody moving around and fidgeting with what sounded like machinery.
«I quickly got up and fetched a small hammer from my husband’s took chest and began to tap the floor, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, etc. I had continued for about five minutes when to my surprise the ’being’ beneath the floor began to tap back, 1-2-3, 1-2-3. As I listened I heard a series of noises and knocks and then a MAN’S voice began to speak, not to me but to someone else. His words were too muffled to understand.
«I called the local police and asked if there were any underground installations in our town and they said there were not.
«Frequently after that I would place my ear to the floor and always I could hear the hum of machinery but never again the man’s voice.
«It is my opinion that races of people live far beneath the earth in vast networks of caverns and they have access to miracle machinery that can project sound and even images to the earth’s surface. I wonder if we are confusing these subterranean beings with spirits?

One researcher by the name of Frank D. Adams has written about the results of his own personal scientific experiments which may prove that giant cavities exist in granite at depths of more than 11 miles, conclusions which have also been supported by Louis V. King, a mathematician who calculated that, at normal temperatures, a cavity would exist at a depth of between 17.2 and 20.9 miles. The authors’ findings are also supported by the recently discovered «16 Rouse Belts» which give planes of fracture penetrating the globe.
Dr. Ron Anjard, in an article in the Summer, 1978 issue of PURSUIT Magazine, claimed personal knowledge of 44 underground cities beneath the surface of North America, six of which are alleged to be on the West Coast. His information comes from anonymous American Indian sources. When we relate this to the large number of migration legends (to and from cavern realms) which exist among the native Amerindians, then we may conclude that certain tribes still retain intimate knowledge of underground civilizations who are related to them via distant ancestral links. In the case of the Hopi Indians, according to Dr. Hank Krastman, certain Hopi elders maintain contact with their subterranean cousin-tribes to this day. There are also indications that some entire tribes literally moved underground as a result of the encroaching Anglosaxon invasion of the America’s. Similar allegations are made in relation to the Mayas, the Incas, and several other Central and South American tribes as well.
Karl Brugger, in his book ’THE CHRONICLE OF AKAKOR’ (Boohi Tree Books., Delacorte Press., N.Y., 230 pp), gives the history — as given to the author by one of their chiefs — of the Ugha Mongulalatribesman, whose ancestors were allegedly part of a vast empire which covered South America in ancient times. Some of these ancient people, the chief claimed, left the planet in aerial vessels to explore other parts of the solar system and beyond, leaving behind vast subterranean cities beneath the Andes mountains and western Brazil. In 1971, due to the constant encroachment of white settlers or invaders into their territory, 30,000 survivors of the Ugha Mongulala allegedly escaped to this ancient system of underground cities, consisting of 13 separate subterranean complexes all connected by tunnels, one of which is said to extend to Lima, and others of which are located throughout the Andes Mountain range of Peru.
Michael Burke, in his article ’GREEN THING SPARKS RUMORS’ (THE VALLEY NEWS DISPATCH, New Kensington, Tarentum and Vandergrift, PA., Mar. 5, 1981 issue) described a short ’lizard’ like creaturewhich has been seen walking on two legs like a man, was reportedly about 3-ft tall, and «half humanoid and half dinosaur». The creature was seen emerging from a sewer tunnel near New Kensington. A group of children chased the infant or young dinosauroid, one of the more courageous of them momentarily grabbing it from behind, at which point it let out a squealing or screeching sound, and then slipped from his hands and escaped back into the sewer tunnel. In later encounters children attempted to pour gasoline on the creature and light it on fire, although most of the fuel fell on the ground, and the reptilioid escaped unscathed.
Dr. Earlyne Chaney, in an article titled ’ODYSSEY INTO EGYPT’ (which appeared in her occult-oriented magazine VOICE OF ASTARA — May, 1982), tells of a discovery she and researcher Bill Cox were shown during their tour of Egypt. Their tour guides confided to the two mystics their knowledge of two tunnels, neither of which had been fully explored. One was in the temple of Edfu between Luxor and Cairo in the ruins of El Tuna Gabel; and the other near Zozer’s Step Pyramid at Cairo near Memphis-Saqqarah, within the tomb of the Bull, called ’Serapheum’. The Egyptian government reportedly sealed both tunnels because of fears of certain archaeologists that the tunnels «lead too deeply down into the depths of the earth,» and because they found the earth to be «honeycombed with passages leading off into other depths,» and the possibility of explorers becoming lost. If such labyrinths do exist, then it may explain one story concerning strange men dressed like «ancient Egyptians» who have been seen, according to witnesses, deep within unexplored tunnels below the region of Cairo and the Great Pyramids.
This may also be a possible confirmation of an account which appeared in NEVADA AERIAL RESEARCH’S «LEADING EDGE» Publication, to the effect that the U.S.(?) Government secretly maintains a HUGE base within a cavern of tremendous size (several miles in diameter) beneath the desert sands of Egypt. Could this tie-in with the vague references to the subterranean culture or cultures known as the ’Phoenix Empire’ (according to «Commander X«, who alleged that representatives of this empire have been seen in the deeper levels of the «Dulce» base); and the ’Gizeh’ or ’Giza’ People (a subterranean cult of Illuminati-like Imperialists who, so the «Pleiadeans» claim, are working with other power-groups in a covert attempt to take over the governments of planet earth)?
Vaughn M. Greene, in a letter which appeared in issue No. 14 of Richard Toronto’s SHAVERTRON letterzine, spoke of a possible ’entrance’ to cavern systems near the bottom of the elevator landing within the Hoover dam facility near Las Vegas (not far from the Mojave Desert), which holds back Lake Mead. Several people have reported unusual «alien» encounters near this reservoir. Early construction workers allegedly broke into (and probably re-sealed) large caverns while blasting out the cliffs near the base of the dam. In the lower elevator landing, according to Mr. Greene, there was a «wild tile inlay on the floor, with signs of the zodiac and all sorts of stuff suggesting an entrance.» He suggests a possible connection between this and the caverns which the workers reportedly broke into. Could this tie-in with similar accounts given by others that an underground base exists beneath Page, Arizona?
This underground facility is believed by several sources to connect the S-4 underground base in Nevada to the Dulce underground base in New Mexico via tube-line? The Glen Canyon — Lake Powell Hydroelectric dam in Page ’might’ provide a power source for such an underground installation, and is the most likely area in or around Page for an ’entrance’ (a deep gorge several hundred feet deep leading into the Grand Canyon, a large government facility, a hydroelectric power source, etc.). This is however only supposition. It is said that Navaho dam, by the way, is a major power-source that supplies a considerable percentage of electricity for the upper human-occupied levels of the Dulce Base. This may suggest that other similar bases are at least partially powered by hydroelectric dams.
Paxson C. Hayes, in writings of his which appeared in early issues of BSRF’s (Borderland Sciences Research Foundation’s) publication ’ROUND ROBIN,’ referred to the discovery (one which he claimed to have made himself) of the mummified remains of a race of 7-ft. tall humans who lived in huge caverns 9,000 feet below the surface of North America.
Dana Howard, in her book, ’VESTA, THE EARTHBORN VENUSIAN’ (Essene Press., Corpus Christi, TX. 1950), includes a chapter in her book which tells of a remnant of an ancient race or human civilizationstill in existence underground. These hidden people are said to reside within one of the mountain ranges adjacent to the Imperial Valley area on the outskirts of the Mojave Desert of California.
John A. Keel, on p. 145 of his book ’THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES’ (Signet Books., N.Y., 1975.), states:
«An engineer, Rex Ball, swears he came upon a mysterious underground installation in Georgia in 1940, manned by small Oriental-looking men in coveralls and a few American military officers. When he was caught in the tunnels, one of the officers issued the curt command, ’Make him look like a nut!’ He woke up in a field, uncertain whether his experience had been real or a dream. That seems to be the battle cry of the phenomena. ’Make him look like a nut!’» And on p. 192 of the same book:
«…A man on Long Island (informed Keel that he) was frantically making preparations for the big evacuation. He even traveled to a secret underground flying saucer base, in a black Cadillac with a dashboard festooned with flashing colored lights, where he participated in a ’dry run.’ Other normal human beings were present, he said, and manned various kinds of equipment to communicate with the rescue spaceships somewhere overhead. ’Funny thing, John,’ he mused, ’all the equipment was manufactured by Western Electric, Hallicrafters, and other U.S. companies.’»
Tal LeVesque (aka Jason Bishop), in an article titled ’UNDERGROUND UFO BASE SUSPECTED BY OFFICIALS IN WASHINGTON’, which appeared in the Vol. 2., No. 2., issue of THE HOLLOW HASSLE, described a suspected UFO Base which is believed by some to lie under the Yakima Indian Reservation southeast of Tacoma, Washington.
The book ’THE LIFE OF THE CAVE’, by Mohr and Paulson (1966), gives evidence of extended animal migration underground beneath the central-eastern U.S., indicated by troglodytes (cave-dwelling animals) found in widely separated caves which are identical with each other, indicating past inter-connections which have become blocked. These caverns are found from time to time during deep drilling operations.
A researcher by the name of Jon Singer, stated the following in an article of his which appeared in ’THE MISSING LINK’ newsletter:
«Our nation’s capital has it’s share of Fortean mysteries. There is supposed to be a tunnel complex under the Octagon House at 1741 New York Avenue, NW. Dr. John Thornton, the architect who designed the Capitol Building, built some (but not all) of the tunnels. The course of at least two of the tunnels is known. One is supposed to go to the White House and the other supposedly leads to the Potomac. The tunnels are supposedly blocked up. Jim Brandon, on p. 58 of (his book) ’WEIRD AMERICA’ (1978. E.P. Dutton & Co., N.Y.), added that the tunnels built by Dr. Thornton were only part of a much older and larger tunnel network constructed by colonists from Atlantis. Unfortunately his sources were two unidentified psychics, so this must be a fascinating rumor.»
(Note: This would depend upon whether these «revelations» were received by these psychics via entirely metaphysical or «occultic» means, in which case they should be viewed with great suspicion, or whether they based their claims on actual physical accounts).
However, Richard Toronto, editor of SHAVERTRON, claimed that some years ago as a result of a printed request for information on subterranean anomalies, a scientist contacted him offering a 10-page report on a system of tunnels he had personally investigated beneath Washington D.C. He stated that the tunnels were built by a very ancient race, and that the walls consisted of a diamond-hard, glassy or glaze-like substance (similar to other deep tunnels that have been described as existing beneath the surface of northern Arkansas and elsewhere). As far as we know, Mr. Toronto never did actually get his hands on the report.
Brad Steiger, in his book ’STRANGE DISAPPEARANCES’ (Lancer Books., N.Y. 1972) related the following (MIB-related?) incident:
«…at sundown on February 12, 1953, witnesses told police that they had watched an automobile enter the throat of a storm drain near Willowbrook and Greenleaf Avenues in Los Angeles. Officers arrived on the scene within ten minutes, and according to the Los Angeles HERALD AND EXPRESS, they followed the fresh tire-tread marks into the tunnel for seven miles. Other policemen and flood control district workers continued the search for the automobile by dropping through manhole covers.
«The track down continued until midnight when, seven miles up the storm drain, THE TRACKS VANISHED. ’HERALD AND EXPRESS’ newsmen who had accompanied the police on the incredible search up the tube were witnesses to the fact that: ’In the muddy silt covering the floor of the drain, the tire-tread marks were sharp and fresh. Then no more tracks.’»
Steven Brodie was a man of many talents and hobbies, among them painting and rock collecting. Several years back he decided to investigate a certain area in Arizona where, he had heard, quartz crystals could be found in abundance. Brodie convinced a friend of his, also an avid rock collector, to join him on a rock-hunting expedition to the site. After purchasing a ticket on a passenger train, they traveled to a certain small community in Arizona, which was near the area that they desired to explore.
According to researcher John J. Robinson, who related the account as he heard it from Steve Brodie, the name of the Arizona town was not given. John J. Robinson, by the way, was a well-known UFOlogistin the 1950’s, and the account as it was related to him was discussed by Robinson during an interview which was heard by tens of thousands of listeners to the ’Long John Nebel’ radio talk-show on station W.O.R. of New York, in March of 1957.
The two rock hounds had their eyes on one particular bluff, which they could see in the distance from the town they were in. Other town residents heard about their plans and warned them against going to that bluff, stating that SEVERAL people had in the past disappeared without a trace in that area. Brodie and his friend blew-off their warnings, considering them mere superstitions which they should not take seriously, and set out towards the forbidden bluff. They had no sooner approached the base of the bluff than out of the shadows emerged two beings who were each cowled in a dark cloak and hood, making it very difficult to discern their features or whether they were even human or not. After being confronted, Brodie’s friend panicked and attempted to make a run for it. Steve swore that at this point one of the black cloaked figures raised some kind of weapon and a brilliant pencil beam of light shot from it and hit his friend, who cried out in agony and immediately fell down motionless. From what Brodie could gather his friend had been killed, although he never did see his body after that.
Following this, one of the ’beings’ came up to Brodie, who did not resist but stood where he was. While still in a state of shock, one of the creatures placed some type of device over his head, like a metal headset with two metallic ’discs’ which fitted over his temples. At this point he started to lose consciousness.
The next thing Steve remembered after gaining consciousness again was of being in some type of dungeon or cavern-like enclosure, within a prison-like cell. Other humans were there as well. Most of the people there seemed to be under some type of trance or mind control, and as far as he knew, he was one of them. He dimly recalls ’waking up’ a few times, but usually when this happened one of the dark-robed creatures would come over to the cage or enclosure where he was and point a rod-shaped device at him, at which point he would black out again. During one of his brief conscious episodes, he had a chance to talk to another prisoner, a girl, who told him that their dark-robed captors were known as the ’dero’.
That, basically, was all that he remembered. The incredible part of the story, however, was the fact that several months afterwards he suddenly ’came to’ and found himself conscious once again. He suddenly realized that he was walking down the streets of New York City! He had no idea how he got there, or where he had been the past six months. It was like ’waking up’ out of a bad dream or nightmare, the majority of which he could not remember. In addition to this, he found that someone had given him a haircut (he didn’t know whom).
Whether or not this account has any connection to the many ’rumors’ of strange and ancient caverns and tunnels below New York City is uncertain. Some cautiously speak of such tunnels as being used by a MIB-like secret society, some of these tunnels connecting with the lowest sub-basements of the Empire State building and other Manhattan structures. Some allege that such tunnels are the possible destination of many of those who mysteriously end up ’missing’ in New York City every year. Whether these are mere unfounded ’rumors’ is anyone’s guess, at least until solid evidence ’surfaces’ to prove such accounts.
John J. Robinson made several visits to Mr. Brodie, and from his perceptions of the men he felt that Brodie was sincere in what he was saying, but Steve was constantly paranoid and in fear that he was ’being followed’ or that someone or something was constantly watching or stalking him. Also, Steve Brodie would often paint bizarre other-worldly landscapes, even though he wasn’t used to painting in that style until after his ’experience’, which Robinson thought peculiar. Then one day Robinson stopped by Brodie’s apartment to pay him a visit and he was no where to be found. No one seemed to know what happened to him, and that was the last time Mr. Robinson ever saw Steve again.
The ’Steve Brodie’ account, incidentally, was also related in an article in the Vol. 1, No. 3, 1971 issue of ’STRANGE’ magazine, and also in early issues of ’SAUCER NEWS’, of which John J. Robinson — who lived in Jersey City, New Jersey at the time — was assistant editor.
In his book ’ON THE SHORES OF ENDLESS WORLDS’ (Souvenir Press), Andrew Tomas, in his chapter «Labyrinths and Serpents», states:
«…According to legend, King Minos of Crete ordered his architect Daedalus to construct the labyrinth, a maze of passages so ingeniously devised that even the builder himself could not find his way without a plan. In the centre lived the Minotaur, half bull, half human, to whom the Greeks sent seven youths and seven maidens as a tribute every nine years. The Minotaur was slain by Theseus who was able to find his way out of the labyrinth thanks to a ball of thread given to him by Ariadne. This myth has been interpreted as an historical record of the construction of the palace of Minos in Knossos which contains innumerable galleries and rooms. On the other hand, this myth may have an entirely different interpretation, similar to a cryptogram, which conceals the existence of a secret repository of underground chambers and passages…»
Although this might seem to be just a ’legend’, there are actual accounts of alleged encounters with paraphysical (part supernatural, part physical) ’demoniacal’ creatures such as the satyrs, centaurs, and Minotaurs, etc., which have been described in Greek mythology. Such encounters often involve paraphysical «poltergeist-like» phenomena and manipulation of mind and matter. According to some sources, a race of beings possessing a combination of humanoid, angelic and animal-like characteristics pre-dated Adamic civilization and were involved in the original rebellion and conspiracy against the Creator (other ’mythical’ beings such as mer-people, unicorns, fairies and such were also traditionally involved in the fall. Like the angels themselves, some of them were deceived by the followers of Lucifer whereas others escaped the fall and remained true to the Creator). The creatures mentioned in the 9th chapter of the book of Revelation ’may’ be this type of demonic or fallen entity. These creatures were apparently distinct from the purely spiritual angelic and fallen-angelic beings. Whether the following account describes an encounter with such a fallen race(s) remains to be seen. The letter we quote here appeared in the Winter, 1962 issue of THE HIDDEN WORLD, one of several publications which grew out of the «Shaver Mystery» controversy of the late 1940’s:
«Mr. Richard Shaver: Hoping this letter finds you in the best of health. My name is Frank J. Mezta. I live in the County of Imperial Valley, City of Calexico, California.
«Through accident I happened to stumble into your book HIDDEN WORLD issue No. A-1 and just recently A-2. I sometimes wonder if it was luck or deliberate action on the part of a tero. All my life, I have been looking and asking for certain, unsolved and unanswered questions regarding civilization, our ancestors and the beginning of time. I believe your book gave me the best answers. Let me tell you a few of my expeditions.
«Two years ago, we went treasure hunting in the interior of Mexico, which turned out to be a flop. But in that excursion some strange things happened to us, which at the time we wrote off as superstition. We went to this place where we were supposed to enter; but suddenly a fright with chills came over me, something I had never felt before. Something like a sixth sense, like if I knew something was going to happen to me. I didn’t go in and neither did anybody else. Next day we approached the cave again, only this time I wasn’t afraid and I let the group inside. This cave was tremendous in size, and leading passages everywhere. Some of these passages or chambers, sometimes being 30 ft. high and 100 ft. long (contained) connecting tunnels. We finally gave up, but in retrieving we found two leading passages instead of the one we had entered. This startled us, and we set to investigate the second tunnel. It just kept winding and going down so we finally gave up and got out of there.
«When we got back to the village we struck a conversation with two Mexican Indians, and they told us that whatever we did, not to go into the enchanted caves. We got curious and asked them where these so called enchanted caves were. They gave us directions and that was exactly where we had entered a few days ago. We asked them what happened in these caves. They told us that people that went in there, never came out, that while in there, the entrances and tunnels would change, which happened to us, and we didn’t know about this till after we had been in there. Then they told us the strangest thing, which at the time we said these people are superstitious. They said that they went with an expedition with 20 or 30 men hired by an American man to look into this cave. This happened about 10 or 15 years ago they said. Four or five of the men had revolvers, they were well equipped with lights and tools. While they were working there all of a sudden in the far end there appeared a half man and bull head like a bull upright. This description fits the one you have on your front cover on issue A-1. And next to him was a naked midget or little boy. They pulled out their revolvers but they wouldn’t fire, and their lights went out. There was confusion, and several men were killed in the scramble and nobody returned after that
— Frank J. Mezta, 939 Genge, Calexico, Calif.»
David Perkins, in a letter of his which appeared in the Vol. 1, No. 1 issue of ’THE HOLLOW HASSLE’, told of a strange «breathing well» that drillers had broken into 17 miles east of Walsenberg, CO. Other strange occurrences had been found on the ranch or farm where the well was located, including unexplained cattle mutilations. Representatives from the Colorado School of Mines came out to investigate the well, which seemed to ’breath’ in and out with the rising and falling of the tides, and they excitedly suggested that a tunnel lay below which may have connected with a similar tunnel which the Colorado School of Mines had tracked from the Gulf of Mexico and as far as Oklahoma. A ’possible’ connection to this: one source alleged that an ’alternative 002’ type of underground ’city’ maintained by a secret society, can be entered via a ’lodge’ in the Uncompagre Mts., also in southwest Colorado. Also, a large «Masonic Park» exists in this same area (any connection?).
Morris K. Jessup’s «THE CASE FOR THE UFO — ANNOTATED EDITION» (a classic collectors item republished by Gray Barker in a limited edition) was FIRST ’reprinted’ by the VARO Corp. of Texas. This was an electronics firm which was commissioned to print the book specifically for the Navy. The original ’CASE FOR THE UFO’, written by UFOlogist Morris K. Jessup, was not too revealing in itself but was merely a collection of theories and documented sightings of UFOs just like other books which were making the rounds. The interesting thing however is that Jessup was approached by Naval Officials and shown an ANNOTATED copy of his own book which had been sent to them by persons unknown. Later a ’Carlos Allende’, apparently one of three mysterious informants, contacted Jessup, insinuating that he and the three other annotators were representatives of an ancient hi-tech earth-based society of possible «gypsy» heritage. The notations and comments were apparently based on the secret knowledge of their race.
They spoke of force fields, aerial ships, forces working in the Bermuda Triangle, ancient nuclear war on earth, diamond crystals, and many other subjects of a highly technical nature. What caught the Navy’s interest however were references to the so-called ’Philadelphia Experiment’, a Navy project which has been confirmed by others that involved an attempt to make a destroyer, the ’U.S.S. ELDRIDGE’, invisible optically as well as to radar. An intense electromagnetic field was allegedly generated and the ship did go invisible to the point that it’s water-line could be seen in the water — minus the ship itself.
But then something happened, a brilliant blue flash was observed and the men on the ship were thrown into chaos. Apparently the experiment in it’s attempt to make a ship invisible had broken through the electromagnetic barrier between two worlds and loosed a whole pandora’s box of unknown forces. What happened from that point on has been debated. Some of these reported side effects included:
* The appearance of Greenish fogs similar to those observed in the Bermuda Triangle; nicknamed the ’molasses’ or the ’push’.
* In some cases the death of servicemen who became caught up in possible underlying electrical currents which set their bodies on fire in a type of spontaneous human combustion.
* The permanent disappearance of servicemen during and after the experiments into a parallel time-space reality.
* The induced invisibility, time freezing, or teleporting of Navy workers and at least one ship at the Philadelphia Shipyard.
* Workers in the ’Experiment’ state that a horrifying side effect involved the tendency of workers to phase-out into another parallel time-space existence wherein they might be able to observe our ’world’ yet would be invisible and intangible, «phantoms» who are neither alive or dead as we know it. Some reports included a jet pilot involved in the original experiment who just ’disappeared’ from the cockpit his aircraft, causing the death of a passenger; A man who ’walked through a wall’ in the sight of his family and was never seen again; A group of men involved in the experiment who ’disappeared’ into and out of a greenish fog during a bar room brawl to the consternation of their opponents; And at least one man (who was presumed to have died or disappeared in one of the experiments) who would ’appear out of nowhere’ at his mother’s home, crying and asking for food, etc.
* In at least one case there was the ’recovery’ of crewmen who were caught in a TIME FREEZE for several decades, only to be pulled from an alternate ’timeflow’ by none other than Dr. John Von Neumann and his associates. Actual non-paradoxical «time travel» (the only kind that reportedly exists or can exist) may have been involved in this recovery.
The Experiments were reportedly assisted by Nikola Tesla, Dr. Von Neumann, T. Townsend Brown, Edward Cameron, John Hutchinson, Dr. Emil Kurtenauer and other top scientists, utilizing Einsteinian theory. However Tesla reportedly sabotaged one of the first experiments after being convinced it would be harmful to the humans involved. Rumor had it that Tesla was in contact with extraterrestrials (Pleiadeans operating from the Red Planet, Mars), and that UFO’s were involved with the experiment in some way, attempting to guide the experiments in an advisory capacity via their contacts with Nikola Tesla. Tesla allegedly quit the project over the fact that too many servicemen were being ’sacrificed’ by well-meaning Nazi-phobes who were insistent on developing the technology to aid the War Effort before the Germans could gain the upper hand in the War. The UFO occupants in contact with Tesla allegedly warned of the dangers, however many these warnings went unheeded by Navy Intelligence…
(Note: 40 years later the project was reportedly taken over and continued by a cabal of CIA agents in league with the Bavarian Illuminati of Germany, and it’s fellow occult lodge, the Bavarian Thule Societywhich had created the Nazi Empire. These experiments were carried out in an underground base below Montauk Point, Long Island, and involved time-space window experiments and mass microwave mind-control. However, by that time the Pleiadeans were out of the picture all-together, since these fascists who had wrested control of the ’Philadelphia’ technology from Navy Intelligence were at that time in full cooperation with the alien Grays in a joint effort to establish a one-world National Socialist Empire.
This war between Navy and Nazi intelligence went «underground» after the Allied Invasion of Germany. There are allegations that Navy Admiral Richard E. Byrd and 4,000 elite Navy forces even made a secret attempt to destroy a super-secret underground Nazi stronghold in Antarctica code-named «New Berlin«. This massive base was reportedly inhabited by over 2,000 Nazi-S.S. scientists, and nearly 1,000,000 lay Nazis [and slave-workers from the concentration camps], all of whom had mysteriously disappeared from Germany throughout the course of the war. This secret war is said to continue today within the Nevada Military complex between Navy Intelligence’s «COM-12» who maintain contact with the Pleiadeans, and the CIA-Thule Society’s «AQUARIUS» cult which has maintained ties with the reptilian Grays that may date back before the beginning of World War II — Branton)
As for M.K. Jessup, who was the recipient of several of the «Allende» revelations, the Philadelphia Experiment was described in even more detail within the letters that he received from the mysterious Carl Allen, or «Carlos Allende» (could Allende’s contemporaries have been tied-in with the UFO’s that allegedly guided the experiments?). Jessup continued in his investigation of the Philadelphia Experiment or ’Project Rainbow’. At one point he informed a research associate that he had some startling revelations, and that he would bring the information over to him personally. Jessup left to deliver the revelations, but he never arrived at his friends house. It is almost as if some dark organization was intent on preventing these revelations, whatever they were, from reaching the public.
Jessup was found suffocated to death in his car, near a park, the result of carbon monoxide poisoning via a hose which was attached to his tailpipe and run into the car. It was said that when he was found, Jessup was still barely alive. However there were no reports of any attempts to save his life. In fact, the research documents containing the «revelations» never turned up, and Jessup took his secret with him to the grave. The «authorities» who «responded» to his death seem to be at least partially implicated. There is also the strong possibility that Jessup’s death was «fixed» to look like a suicide. The mystery has not yet been solved.
John Keel, in his book ’OUR HAUNTED PLANET’ (1968., Fawcett., Greenwich, Conn.) pp. 113-114, relates the following:
«…Another group of CIA-baiting researchers is now over- lapping into ufology. They are the comparatively small teams of amateur sleuths dedicated to investigating the assassination of President Kennedy. Here the black Cadillacs and the slight, dark men in black suits are viewed as Cubans and CIA agents. Paranoia runs high because now over fifty witnesses — as of 1968 —, reporters, and assassination investigators have met with sudden death, under the most suspicious circumstances. The full story of Kennedy’s murder in Dallas in 1963 is filled with incredible details, many of them similar to things found in the most mysterious of the UFO incidents. Photos and physical evidence have vanished or been tampered with just as in so many UFO cases. A wide assortment of mystery men have been involved, including DOPPELGANGERS of the late Lee Harvey Oswald — see Richard Popkin’s ’THE SECOND OSWALD’.
This other Oswald even turned up at a public rifle range before the assassination, making a nuisance of himself (so the witnesses would be sure to remember him?), he FIRED AN UNUSUAL GUN WHICH SPAT OUT BALLS OF FIRE AT THE TARGET. He also visited an automobile showroom and went for a demonstration ride in a new car. The real Oswald could not drive. His whereabouts at the time of these incidents are known… and he was nowhere near the rifle range and auto agency. The huge WARREN REPORT contains numerous pieces of sworn testimony describing MIB-type men in the vicinity of Dealey Plaza and the School Book Depository building immediately before and after the assassination. Long-haired men were seen. This may not sound extraordinary, but remember that long hair was most unusual in 1963. The Beatles did not begin to make an impression until 1964, and the long-hair fad did not get underway until 1965-66…»
Researcher Val Valarian in the early 1990’s investigated the experiences of a woman who claimed abductions on numerous occasions near Mt. Lassen, California (see: LEADING EDGE Magazine, June 1992 issue). Her ’abductors’, she claimed, were humans of a generally unsympathetic and manipulating nature who were working with the reptilian ’grays’. During her encounter she saw the typical grays, a larger ’gray’ with orange-red eyes and vertical-slit pupils, and of course the humans themselves. At one point a ’woman’ took off a helmet in front of her, which seemed to be used to cover her features. Immediately someone from another room began cursing and told her to put the helmet back on.
This abductee also referred to a ’head-doctor’ who implemented a type of ’induced psychosis’ (split personality?) on her through some type of techno-hypnotic manipulation.
Mt. Lassen has been described by others as being a ’doorway to another world’, and according to early contributors to Ray Palmer’s AMAZING STORIES magazine during the ’Shaverian’ era, strange voices have been heard there, and even rocks from the size of pebbles to basketball-size have mysteriously showered down on people who have approached certain areas of the mountain, and this without any outward sign of volcanic activity from the mountain itself.
Some years ago a man by the name of Ralph B. Fields submitted an account to AMAZING STORIES Magazine (Dec. 1946 issue, pp. 155-157), with the assurance that it was true and actually happened. He and a friend of his who lived at the base of Mt. Lassen in California stated that they had read an article in a magazine telling of the unusual quality of bat guano as a fertilizer, and that it was a very valuable resource. Hoping to make a quick buck, they decided to climb the mountain in search of caverns which might contain the valuable fertilizer.
On about the third day of their journey they discovered behind an outcropping of rock a small entrance to a cave, at about the 7000 ft. level. They immediately chose to explore, and soon found that the passage widened considerably. They noticed that the walls seemed to be smooth and glazed, as if the rock had been fused by intense heat in some ancient time.
They continued deeper until to their horror they saw a light up ahead of them. Shortly after this they were confronted with five ’normal’ looking men wearing the usual surface attire that was common at the time, flannel shirts, etc. These strangers asked the two young men what they were doing, and when they explained about the ’guano’ they had the impression that the ’men’ did not believe them. One of them, appearing to be in his mid- 50’s, said ’I think you had better come with us.’ They were then taken to a large machine or contrivance nearby which appeared to be sled-like, with a copper-colored metal-like sheet covering its underside. It also seemed to hover perpetually a few inches above the ground. At that point they were taken onto the ’sled’ (which they later learned was constructed, along with the tunnel itself, by an ancient and possibly antediluvian race, and was based on a ’carbon’ and possibly electromagnetic propulsion system.) The ’sled’ could reach great speeds and seemed to follow a metal ’strip’ that ran along the center of the underground ’road’.
As if this were not enough, they were surprised once again when another ’light’ quickly approached from the distance, a similar vehicle. Eventually the other ’sled’ as well as the one they were on slowed and came to a stop only a few yards from each other. Their captors fled in terror while the two explorers remained on the sled, confused at this strange drama being played out before them. They noticed a brilliant pencil-beam of light which shot forth from the ’other’ sled and caught the fleeing men in their path.
These new arrivals soon made it known to Ralph Fields and his friend that the men who had taken them captive were the ’horlocks’. They made it known that it was fortunate that ’they’ had come this way, otherwise «you would have become horlocks yourselves, and we would have had to kill you also.»
Just what a ’horlock’ was they did not specify, but in connection with other accounts, they may have been mind-altered human pawns of a malevolent race, possibly even the serpent race (or Grays) if we consider later reports of collaboration between humans and reptilians near Mt. Lassen.
These ’men’ did not explain much, other than the fact that there were many evil persons in the underground ’world’ who have caused ’them’ as well as those on the surface considerable harm. One of the men stated that such men were ’safe’ because the outside world generally did not believe that they or their world existed. The dilemma of these new arrivals however, was that they felt compelled to keep the knowledge of certain of the ’ancient’ technologies that had been discovered in the caverns (and much of the operation of which still remained unexplained even to these cavern dwellers) away from those on the surface, otherwise we might be inclined to destroy ourselves with these technological forces that we know very little about, based on our past experience of twisting scientific discoveries into weapons of destruction.
Fields and his friend were allowed to return to the surface, but were warned never again to enter the caves.
The above account seems to tie-in with yet another report which involved a group of speleonauts who entered one of several caverns west or northwest of Cushman, Arkansas.
These explorers claimed to have descended 5 to 6 miles (over a period of several consecutive explorations) into deep and extensive cavern systems. At one point they claimed to have broken into a glazed ’tunnel’ of apparent human construction which was lined with metal-hard yet transparent tunnel walls. Through these transparent tunnel walls they were able to occasionally observe a whole «hadean» like world of bizarre subterranean creatures, including hairy humanoids who appeared to be in conflict with a race of oversized serpents or snakes, and even giant insects, cavern moths, and so on.
The most interesting part of their expedition, which was recorded in THE HOLLOW HASSLE Newsletter — formerly edited by TAL LeVesque and Mary Davis, was their alleged encounter with a race of humans approximately 8 ft. tall with pale blue skin. These people were similar in description to a certain group of ’aliens’ referred to by John Lear and others which were reportedly encountered by certain astronauts on the moon — a ’top secret’ which the government may never admit to. The cavers described them as about 7-8 ft. tall and possessing large ’wrap-around’ eyes, but nevertheless ’human’ in every other respect.
The explorers insisted that they were ’led’ to an underground city via a type of hidden elevator, and were even shown deeper caverns of immense size in which could be seen ancient repositories left there by a highly-advanced (scientifically) antediluvian race, some of the contents of which, they were told, remained sealed to that day! This may have been the same ancient culture which LEFT the machines that were described in the Ralph Fields account.
The explorers were told, via a type of translating device, that the inhabitants of this particular cavern city were descended from a family that in our own traditions would correspond to the Biblical description of the family of ’Noah’; that they had a ’Book of Laws’ somewhat similar to our Bible; and that they had come to the Western Hemisphere thousands of years previous and discovered this already-existing subterranean ’world’. They also stated that some of their ancestors had left the earth to explore the other planets and stars long ago.
Whether the following item has any connection with the people allegedly encountered by these speleologists is uncertain. The following was related by John Keel in his book ’THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES’:
«…The Cherokees have a tradition, according to Benjamin Smith Barton’s ’NEW VIEWS OF THE ORIGINS OF THE TRIBES AND NATIONS OF AMERICA’ (1798), that when they migrated to Tennessee they found the region inhabited by a weird race of white people who lived in houses and were apparently quite civilized. They had one problem: their eyes were very large and sensitive to light. They could only see at night…»
Is it possible that these people may have later taken up a cave-dwelling lifestyle, if they had not done so previously, to allow themselves more comfortable living conditions?
The many caverns west of Cushman, Arkansas have given rise to many strange legends and stories. There are accounts of vast underground mazes, underground lakes, caves which lead to extremely deep pockets of stagnant air or poison gas, areas where electrical lights will not work, stories of people entering caves and never being seen again, and even accounts of hairy humanoids throwing boulders at intruders, intentionally missing them so as to scare them away. In essence it is a place which, if Jules Verne had known about it when writing his famous ’A JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH’, might have been the inspiration behind his novel of a daring descent into the underground world.
Lt. Col. Wendelle C. Stevens, in his book, «UFO — CONTACT FROM THE PLEIADES, A PRELIMINARY REPORT» (UFO Photo Archives., Tucson, AZ 1982., p. 79) reports on the alleged sixth face-to-face contact between Eduard ’Billy’ Meier and the ’Pleiadean’ Semjase. He was told of strange people, unknown to us, who live in the interior of mountains and cave’s beneath the earth’s surface. They are of various types, some with bluish skin, and others who often come to the surface and blend with surface inhabitants, unknown as to their true origin.
Ferdinand Ossendowski describes what may be one of the most widely accepted ’legends’ in Asia, one which is in fact accepted by millions of people. This legend is described in his book ’BEASTS, MEN AND GODS’ (1922. E.P. Dutton & Co., N.Y.). Quoting from the chapter ’THE SUBTERRANEAN KINGDOM’ (pp. 300-311) we read:
«…On my journey into Central Asia I came to know for the first time about the ’Mystery of Mysteries,’ which I can call by no other name. At the outset I did not pay much attention to it and did not attach to it such importance as I afterwards realized belonged to it, when I had analyzed and connected many sporadic, hazy and often controversial bits of evidence.
«The old people on the shore of the river Amyl related to me an ancient legend to the effect that a certain Mongolian tribe, in their escape from the demands of Genghis Khan, hid themselves in a subterranean country. Afterwards a Soyot from near the Lake of Nogan Kul showed me the smoking gate that serves as the entrance to the ’Kingdom of Agharti.’ Through this gate a hunter formerly entered into the Kingdom and, after his return, began to relate what he had seen there. The Lamas cut out his tongue in order to prevent him from telling about the Mystery of Mysteries. When he arrived at old age, he came back to the entrance of this cave and disappeared into the subterranean kingdom, the memory of which had ornamented and lightened his nomad heart.
«…The favorite Gelong Lama of Prince Chultun Beyli and the Prince himself gave me an account of the subterranean kingdom.
«’Everything in the world,’ said the Gelong, ’is constantly in a state of change and transition — peoples, science, religions, laws and customs. How many great empires and brilliant cultures have perished! And that alone which remains unchanged is Evil, the tool of Bad Spirits. More than 60,000 years ago a holyman disappeared with a whole tribe of people under the ground and never appeared again on the surface of the earth. Many people, however, have since visited this kingdom, Sakkia Mouni, Undur Gheghen, Paspa, Khan Baber and others. No one knows where this place is. One says Afghanistan, others India. All the people there are protected against Evil and crimes do not exist within its bourns. Science has there developed calmly and nothing is threatened with destruction. The subterranean people have reached the highest knowledge…»
(Note: The 60,000 year period is probably greatly exaggerated. There have apparently been several migrations of surface tribes over the millennia and centuries into what might be referred to as this subterranean ’continent’ of AGHARTA. According to an American ’monk’ by the name of Ernest Dickhoff, as described in his book AGHARTA [Health Research, CA], some of the human inhabitants of this realm had established themselves as residents only within the last few centuries. This took place when an Asian Prince entered with an army of 400 followers and fought with and drove out a race of ’Reptilians’ orserpent-men who had taken possession of these caverns.
This invasion was initiated after it was found that these serpent beings were using black witchcraft to manipulate the minds and spirits of humans on the surface in a very negative way. According to one source, over 20,000,000 persons of various different tribes and cultures now reside in Agharti, and many more millions on the surface in Asia accept the existence of such a mysterious realm, according to writers such as Ferdinand Ossendowski, Nicholas Roerich, and others. It is said that ancient ’library’ temples exists between the surface of Asia AND Agharti, in underground vaults to which certain Asian ’initiates’ have access. Below or beyond these vaults, through hidden passages, the kingdom itself is believed to exist. — Branton)
«Prince Chultun Beyli added: ’This kingdom is Agharti. It extends throughout all the subterranean passages of the whole world. I heard a learned Lama of China relating to Bogdo Khan that all the subterranean caves of America are inhabited by the ancient people who have disappeared underground. Traces of them are still found on the surface of the land. These subterranean peoples and spaces are governed by rulers owing allegiance to the King of the World…’»
(Note: If the subterranea of America was once MOSTLY inhabited by humans who migrated there from the surface or other parts of the inner world, then the fact of the MODERN DAY infiltration of the saurian or serpent races [of which the Grays apparently make up the majority] into the underground of America must suggest that the major infestation occurred sometime within the last few centuries. The so-named ’King of the World’ is apparently a reference to the present of a long succession of leaders over the council of Agharti, which would probably make whoever held such a position one of the most influential men in the world, for good or evil. And in fact, according to former Dulce Base security worker Thomas Castello, certain of the U.S. Presidents in the past have not only held conferences with the ruling council in ’Telos’, but also with these kings of ’Agharti’.
Telos, the colony below Mt. Shasta, is reportedly a western branch of the Agharti Federation. A succession of many such ’kings’ have allegedly reigned over this underground realm, most of them probably receiving more adoration than they deserve, having apparently been regarded as ’gods’ by some of the residents of the subterranean world, if the «King of the World» appellation is any indication. This would not necessarily be the fault of these ’kings’ or leaders, many of whom according to sources HAVE acknowledged a higher potentate than themselves and prayed to Almighty ’God’ on behalf of humanity. Just like the Popes of Rome or Rulers, Secretary Generals, Prime Ministers and Presidents of the surface nations, these Agharian ’kings’ possessed their own personalities, some being perhaps more suited to reign than others. Nevertheless they should be respected as the elected or chosen representatives or spokes-persons for perhaps tens of millions of persons who dwell within the inner world. The name of one such king, according to one source, was ’Rigdon Jyepo’. At this writing the names of other Agharian rulers are unknown except, perhaps, to the inhabitants of Agharti or Agharta itself. — Branton)
Prince Chultun, speaking to the author, continued: «’…In underground caves there exists a peculiar light which affords growth to the grains and vegetables and long life without disease to the people. There are many different peoples and many different tribes. An old Buddhist Brahman in Nepal was carrying out the will of the ’gods’ in making a visit to the ancient kingdom of Genghis, — Siam, — where he met a fisherman who ordered him to take a place in his boat and sail with him upon the sea. On the third day they reached an island where he met a people having two tongues which could speak separately in different languages. They showed to him peculiar, unfamiliar animals, tortoises with sixteen feet and one eye, huge snakes with a very tasty flesh and birds with teeth which caught fish for their masters in the sea. These people told him that they had come up out of the subterranean kingdom and described to him certain parts of the underground country.’
«The Lama Turgut traveling with me from Urga to Peking gave me further details.
«’The capital of Agharti is surrounded with towns of high priests and scientists. It reminds one of Lhasa where the palace of the Dalai Lama, the Potala, is the top of a mountain covered with monasteries and temples.
«’…In cars strange and unknown to us they rush through the narrow cleavages inside our planet. Some Indian Brahmans and Tibetan Dalai Lamas during their laborious struggles to the peaks of mountains which no other human feet had trod have found there inscriptions on the rocks, footprints in the snow and tracks of wheels. The blissful Sakkia Mouni found on one mountain top tablets of stone carrying words which he only understood in his old age and afterwards penetrated into the Kingdom of Agharti, from which he brought back crumbs of the sacred learning preserved in his memory.’»
Ferdinand Ossendowski remembered a particular conversation with one Lama:
«’How many persons have ever been to Agharti?’ I questioned him.
«’Very many,’ answered the Lama, ’but all these people have kept secret that which they saw there.’»
In his book ’SHAMBHALA’ (1930. Frederick A. Stokes Co., N.Y.), writer and traveler Nicholas Roerich adds some additional insights into human habitation of underground regions of central Asia. In his chapter ’SUBTERRANEAN DWELLERS’ we read the following words:
«…In the Altai Mountains, in the beautiful upland valley of Uimon, a hoary Old Believer (Starover) said to me: ’I shall prove to you that the tale about the Chud, the subterranean people, is not a fantasy! I shall lead you to the entrance of the subterranean kingdom.’
«On the way through the valley surrounded by snowy mountains, my host told us many tales about the Chud. It is remarkable that ’Chud’ in Russian has the same origin as the word WONDER. So, perhaps, we may consider the Chud a wonderful tribe. My bearded guide told how ’once upon a time, in this fertile valley lived and flourished the powerful tribe of Chud. They knew how to prospect for minerals and how to reap the best harvest. Most peaceful and most industrious, was this tribe. But then came a White Tzar with innumerable hordes of cruel warriors. The peaceful, industrious Chud could not resist the assaults of the conquerors, and not wishing to lose their liberty, they remained as serfs to the White Tzar. Then, for the first time, a white birch began to grow in this region. And, according to old prophecies, the Chud knew that it was the time for their departure. And the Chud, unwilling to remain subject to the White Tzar, departed under the earth. Only sometimes can you hear the holy people singing; now their bells ring out in the subterranean temples. But there shall come the glorious time of human purification, and in those days, the great Chud shall again appear in full glory.’
«Thus the Old Believer concluded. We approached some low stony hill. Proudly he showed me, ’Here we are. Here is the entrance to the great subterranean kingdom! When the Chud entered the subterranean passage they closed the entrance with stones. Now we stand just beside this holy entrance.’
«We stood before a huge tomb encircled by great stones, so typical of the period of the great migrations. Such tombs, with the beautiful remains of Gothic relics, we saw in South Russian steppes, (and) in foothills of the Northern Caucasus. Studying this hill, I remembered how during our crossing of the Karakorum pass, my sais, the Ladaki, asked me, ’Do you know that in the subterranean caves here many treasures are hidden and that in them lives a wonderful tribe which abhors the sins of earth?’
«And again when we approached Khotan the hoofs of our horses sounded hollow as though we rode above caves or hollows. Our caravan people called attention to this, saying, ’Do you hear what hollow subterranean passages we are crossing? Through these passages, people who are familiar with them can reach far- off countries.’ When we saw entrances to caves, our caravaneers told us, ’Long ago people lived there; now they have gone inside; they have found a subterranean passage to the subterranean kingdom. Only rarely do some of them appear again on the earth. At our bazaar such people come with strange, very ancient money, but nobody could ever remember a time when such money was in usage here.’ I asked them, if we could also see such people. And they answered, ’Yes, if your thoughts are similarly high and in contact with these holy people, because only sinners are upon the earth and the pure and courageous people pass on to something more beautiful.’ (This is not to say that there are NOT subterranean areas where evil abounds, but that there are apparently protected areas where animosity between fellow human beings is greatly discouraged — Branton)
«Great is the belief in the Kingdom of the subterranean people. Through all of Asia, through the spaces of all deserts, from the Pacific to the Urals, you can hear the same wondrous tale of the vanished holy people…
(Note: One such persistent tale is that of the «Lost Ten Tribes» of Israel. Residents of modern Israel claim descent from the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and half of the tribe of Levi who remained behind following the great separation of Israel in the time of Solomon. The only «known» people who claim descent from other Israelite tribes are the so-called «Black Jews» of Ethiopia who insist that they are descended from the tribe of Dan. This leaves 8 1/2 tribes unaccounted for — or rather as some believe 9 1/2 tribes, because in the Book of Revelation the two Josephite lines of Ephraim and Mannassah are considered as distinct tribes.
INTERESTINGLY, the tribe of DAN does not appear in the book of REVELATION among the 144,000 priests, 12,000 from each of the 12 restored tribes [this restoration has yet to take place], possibly because DAN was the tribe most responsible for leading Israel into Old Testament apostasy and idolatry. The only record of the missing 9 1/2 tribes appears in the 13th chapter of the book of II ESDRAS, one of the «apocryphal» books containing Jewish legend and tradition which were written in the 400-year non-prophetical period between the end of the Torahic or Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testement periods. This contains only a cryptic remark that the lost tribes entered an unknown land to the extreme north or northeast called ARZARETH, from where they will one day return in power — Branton)
«Even far beyond the Ural Mountains, the echo of the same tale will reach you. Often you hear about subterranean tribes. Sometimes an invisible holy people is said to be living behind a mountain. Sometimes either poisonous or vitalizing gases are spread over the earth, to protect some one. Sometimes you hear how the sands of the great desert shift, and for a moment disclose treasures of the entrances of subterranean kingdoms. But none would dare to touch those treasures. You will hear how, in the rocks, in the most deserted mountain ranges, you can see openings which connect with these subterranean passes, and how beautiful princesses once upon a time occupied these natural castles.
«From distances one might take these openings for eries, because all which belongs to the subterranean people is concealed. Sometimes the Holy City is submerged, as in the folk-lore of Netherlands and Switzerland. And there is folk-lore that coincides with actual discoveries in the lakes and along the sea coasts. In Siberia, in Russia, Lithuania and Poland, you find many legends and fairy tales about giants who lived at times in these countries but afterwards, disliking the new customs, disappeared. In these legends, one may recognize the specific foundations of the ancient clans. The giants are brothers. Very often the sisters of the giants live on the other shores of the lakes or the other side of the mountains. Very often they do not like to move from the site but some special event drives them from their patrimonial dwelling. Birds and animals are always near these giants; as witnesses they follow them and announce their departure.
«…The endless Kurgans of the southern steppes retain around them numerous stories about the appearance of the unknown warrior, nobody knows from whence. The Carpathian Mountains in Hungary have many similar stories of unknown tribes, giant- warriors and mysterious cities. If, without prejudice, you patiently point out on your map all the legends and stories of this nature you will be astonished at the result. When you collect all the fairy-tales of lost and subterranean tribes, will you not have before you a full map of the migrations?»
According to the self-professed ’Telosian’, Sharula Dux, Agharta is the largest human subterran culture in the world. Also, according to American Buddhist Robert E. Dickhoff, in his book ’AGHARTA’ (referred to above), some of the Aghartan cavern networks were formerly controlled by the «serpent» people. These may have been antediluvian systems that were later taken over by the Reptilian hominoids who left the surface of the earth to preserve their race from human animosity, an animosity that was fully justified. These caverns were located beneath the region of Tibet, which would place them between the Aghartan networks to the northeast that were occupied by humans, and the Patalan networks to the southwest that were traditionally occupied by the Reptilians. This is where a major «altercation» between surface humans and subterran reptilians took place in recent centuries, according to Robert Dickhoff.
Some of the Reptilians escaped, according to other sources, back to the deeper cavern systems below the Himalayas and Hindustan, underneath which (according to Hindu legend) lies the dark and forbidden seven-leveled cavern world of the ’Nagas’ or the serpent beings. Hindu legends say that the underworld ’capitol’ of the Naga’s empire (an empire which has been referred to in different writings as ’Nagaloka’, ’Snakeworld’, or ’Patala’) is a major center of Reptilian activity known as ’Bhoga-vita’. The NAGAS, a race of 7-8 ft. tall green-skinned hominoid lizards, are reportedly very cunning and intelligent and have bases all over the planet. A major base which ’they’ still maintain below Tibet is reportedly located in the mountains surrounding Lake Manosarowar (see: ON THE SHORES OF ENDLESS WORLDS, by Andrew Tomas., Souvenir Press. Ltd., London, England., 1974).
