Were the Portsmouth Earthworks a Portal to the Path of Souls?Wednesday, January 20, 2016
By Gregory Little
My quest to understand the enigmatic Portsmouth, Ohio earthworks began in the 1980s. The site is an almost indescribable series of geometric earthwork formations and mounds connected by graded and earth-enclosed linear walkways. The walkways were a uniform 160-feet wide and were outlined on their sides by walls of earth 3-5 feet in height. The walkways extended for nearly 14 miles. What appears to be the central feature of the massive site was a set of two large, horseshoe-shaped earthworks made from walls of earth some 12-feet high. The map with this feature shows it labeled “A.” The horseshoe embankments were enclosed by a circular wall of earth with several mounds and other linear features in the immediate area. One of these horseshoe embankments remains today and it is located in a park on a high hill in Portsmouth. If modern buildings encircling this site were not present, an expansive view of the entire Portsmouth complex, which extends across the Ohio River into Kentucky, would be possible.
Did Ancient Astronauts Influence American Mound Builders’ Beliefs About Death? Thursday, January 14, 2016
By Gregory Little
In a new book entitled, “Path of Souls” Andrew Collins and I summarize what mainstream archaeologists refer to as the “death journey” of America’s ancient mound builders. The “journey” is the path taken by the “free soul” after death. The ideas incorporated into this journey are exceedingly complex as well as exceedingly old. It is likely that the core of these beliefs extend back into time at least 18,000-years ago when the bright star Deneb, one of the key stars of the Cygnus Constellation, served as the north pole star. The ultimate purpose of the death journey was to allow the soul to escape the physical world and return to the sky where it originated. As already mentioned, it was a complex idea, and only a brief outline of the soul’s journey is given here.
The Search for Hidden Truth In Story, Symbol and FormMonday, January 20, 2014
By Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman
by thousands of miles, with no real means or methods of communication, all use the same symbolic
imagery, with only slight regionally influenced variations? Was there some outside influence spreading these common themes, or were these cultures tapping into a field of ideas and information that existed in the collective subconscious?
Evidence of the Gods: Islands in the PacificThursday, November 22, 2012
By Erich von Däniken
Ancient humans had the natural urge to document the world in which they lived, a fact that is evident in the cave paintings from various sites around the world that all seem to depict the same things. Did the peoples of the prehistoric world have contact with each other? Is it possible that some were transported to far-flung locations in what our ancestors could only have described as “flying chariots”? Here is an excerpt from his latest book giving the reader a taste of von Däniken’s most convincing and thoroughly entertaining work yet.
Sweet Mystery of LifeThursday, February 15, 2007
By Frank Joseph
"THE ARK OF THE COVENANT is something everyone has heard about, but no one is sure what it was." The psychic's response to my question was disappointing. I felt like getting up and leaving right then, but didn't. You know how it is: You don't want to seem rude to a kindly stranger, especially one claiming personal connections, however dubious, with the Other Side.
Alien Structures throughout the Solar System!Monday, February 10, 2014
By T.S. Caladan
There are alien (or ET-human) devices, vehicles and structures on every physical planet in our Solar System! Some moons and major asteroids have been everything from mining excavations to battlefields over time. In some cases, the machines, crafts and alien buildings are extremely ancient. Off-world, artificial structures are right there in front of our eyes.
Comet ISON is not a Comet!Saturday, September 28, 2013
By Tray Caladan
Comet ISON is coming! ISON, considered the ‘Comet of the Century,’ is visible now in telescopes. The object of much hype and speculation is currently traveling at speeds of more than two million miles per day. In November and certainly by its closest approach around Christmas, ISON should be a grand spectacle in the skies without a telescope.
Searching for the TruthThursday, February 28, 2013
By Dennis Balthaser
Much has been written over the years about the three large pyramids of Giza, and the Sphinx, and thousands of years later we still don't know who built them, how they were built, or for what purpose. Egyptologists claim they were completed about 2500 BC making them 4000 years old today, which would possibly predate many of the things mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible. Many of the best-preserved temples in Egypt however, were built during the New Kingdom, (1550-1069 BC), during a period of national wealth and renewed interest in monumental building.
Ancient Celtic Necklace Linked to Paranormal ActivitySaturday, December 1, 2012
By Lewis Hales M.A.,M.A
A diverse mix of experiences have been reported by several staff and others coming in contact with the necklace, including getting chills, feeling stunned, experiencing a sense of awe and losing their balance. One model told me she felt that the artifact radiates with energy. Others report as soon as they touch it, start seeing images in their thoughts of ancient ceremonial and warfare scenes. Almost everyone says they feel an almost overwhelming sense of awe followed by feelings of calm, happiness, relief of stress and especially empowerment. These reports are consistent with statements a few patrons have made after viewing the necklace during an exhibition.
Is there a Portal on Galstonbury Tor?Sunday, October 28, 2012
By Dan Green
The small Somerset town of Glastonbury, like its sister centre the Hebridean Isle of Iona, has enjoyed a celebrity status for some time now. Still a Mecca for those seeking spiritual insight, magic or other worldly dimensionality and, of course, host to the most famous and enduring music festival of them all. So how did it all come about, this self nominating of exceptionalness, a special place in England above most all others?
