Incredible Hidden Secrets of Kailasa Temple and Ellora Caves

MYSTERIOUS PLACES - We could be missing the point about the Kailasa temple. This famous underground creationS, one of the Ellora caves in Maharashtra, India, fascinates many people. Everyone is marveling at the construction. Researchers, including ancient alien theorists, try to find out how the Kailasa temple was built, what an effort it must have been to cut it out of the rocks. But what does the Kailasa temple represent, what does it actually tell us?

Kailasa Temple and Ellora Caves

The Kailasa temple is a Hindu temple. It symbolizes Mount Kailash as the home of Lord Shiva. It is very much an elephant place: there are statues and reliefs of elephants in and around the location. An image of the sacred bull Nandi is on the central temple. Like other Hindu temples, the Kailasa temple has a Sikhara (spire), but it looks relatively small compared to the whole structure. On the inside of the temple, there is a ring or flower relief on the ceiling of the central room.

The Kailasa Temple is part of the Ellora cave group. it is number 16 of a total of 34 caves. The Ellora caves are not natural caves, but religious dwellings excavated out of the face of a cliff. These caves are generally thought to have been created between the fifth and tenth centuries AD. But were they really? Is it possible that the first work was done much earlier in time? So many of these structures worldwide have been re-worked throughout history. Just compare the discussions about the sphinx in Egypt. Its pharaoh head seems too small for its body. Some people think that the sphinx was built long before the pharaohs lived and that the head was just re-carved later.

The Ellora caves house Hindu, Buddhist as well as Jain temples. According to Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, it is one of the possible locations of Mt Meru or Sumeru, which is the center of the universe. Jainism is by far the oldest religion in the region. Jains were the first to build temples as symbolic representations of the mountain. Couldn’t Jains, or even people before them, have carved the basic Ellora caves, in times immemorial? Otherwise the site was some just some sort of market place, where each religious group or ruler carved out booths for themselves when they needed them. This just sounds too random.

The thought that there was a larger, older plan to the Ellora complex is supported by the numbering of the caves. Why are they numbered in the first place? And why is the numbering not chronological? Maybe the cave complex as a whole represents something. If Kailash temple symbolizes the center of the universe, then what is around it? The solar system, the galaxy, the cosmos?

What if we theorize that the Ellora cave group is thousands of years older than expected? It would be interesting to research the complex from this point of view, to see what its secret story is.

Mysterious Structures Discovered Around Stonehenge

STONEHENGE - Have you seen the images of the latest discoveries around Stonehenge? Over the past four years, an international team of archaeologists has been making x-rays of the ground around the mysterious ancient site in Britain. They have now presented their findings, including many images that look like aerial photographs of crop-circle-like shapes.

The BBC will be airing documentaries with all the details this Thursday and next Thursday . The documentary is called “Operation Stonehenge: What Lies Beneath”.

The archaeologists have scanned some 4.5 square miles of territory, making the Stonehenge project the worldwide largest effort ever. They used a range of x-ray techniques, which allowed them to see objects buried in the ground up to five meters deep. 

Bone-like object spotted on Mars by UFO watchers

UFO SIGHTINGS - One of the images sent back by the Mars rover Curiosity seems to show a human-like thighbone, partly buried in the soil.

At least that's what UFO watchers are making of it.
Indeed is seems to be a fossilized bone. The object is lying near a group of other shapes, that look somewhat like pottery.

UFO watchers have been pointing out more such objects over the last days.  Could Curiosity actually be on to something? Are we looking at the remains of lost life forms on Mars? Let's hope that research can shed light on this.

Ancient Mayan Cities Discovered in Mexico Jungle

ANCIENT MAYA - In southeast Mexico, two ancient Mayan cities have been discovered by a team of Slovenian archaeologists. The first location, Lagunita, has in fact been rediscovered on the basis of notes and drawings left by an American archaeologist in the 1970s.

Ancient Maya

The second location is a completely new discovery, now named Tamchén. This word means “deep well” in the Mayan language and refers to underground chambers – called chultuns - found at the site, which were supposedly used for collecting rainwater.

One of the most amazing features is a so-called monster-mouth façade. There are hieroglyphic inscriptions as well. The ancient Maya cities had pyramid temples and palaces, of which ruins have now been discovered. The location is thought to have flourished between 600 and 1000 AD.

Unusual features, so far unknown in other Mayan cities, make the discovery of great interest for future study. The large number of deep chultuns is unusual for example, and so is the shape of the altars at Lagunita. Most intriguing are the versions of the Mayan calendars inscribed in stone monuments on the site. In one text the Long Count Date is incomplete.

Future research into the meaning of these discoveries is needed.

UFO Sighting by International Space Station

UFO SIGHTINGS - A new video recorded by the International Space Station’s cameras seems to be showing a close encounter with an unknown spaceship or UFO of some kind.

UFO Sightings

There have been speculations before about white lights and moving objects recorded by cameras in orbit. But there were always other explanations, like reflections of sunlight or satellite debris.

This siting seems to be more convincing. There is clearly a row of lights quite close to the ISS. The lights look very much like the back of some kind of spaceship. They hung around for quite some time, then slowly disappeared.

Comb Jellies Are The Ultimate Alien Creatures On Earth

ALIEN CREATURES - Have you seen the news about comb jellies, aliens of the sea? These amazing creatures can regenerate any lost body part in just a few days including their brains. Scientists are trying to catch and study them, to find out how they do it.

Comb Jellies

Now the regeneration talent of comb jellies is one thing, but did you know about their other qualities? Here are just a few of comb jellies’ other amazing features:

-They have special cells that can produce and spit out glue. No other animal species has this. They use this feature to catch prey, of course.

-They can be so thin (only one or two layers of cells) that they practically disappear when captured.

-They can quickly adapt to different waters. If they suddenly find themselves in less salty water, they can adjust their internal pressure to survive.

-As was said above, they can regenerate any tissue, even their brain, in just a few days.

-Some of them can also clone themselves. They lose body parts and these parts develop into new comb jellies.

- Most of them are hermaphrodites, i.e. both male and female. They fertilize themselves.

-When times are tough and they can’t find enough food, comb jellies quickly adapt by stopping reproduction and shrinking themselves. Come better times and they grow themselves back to a standard size.

Now aren’t comb jellies actually the ultimate aliens on Earth? They give us a real-time show of how life must have developed in ancient times.

The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland

ANCIENT PLACES - There are so many fascinating natural structures around the world. Shapes that are said to be natural, but just seem too special. You would think intelligent beings built them. 

Giant’s Causeway Ireland

A famous one is the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. This coastline formation consists of a large number of basalt columns that seem neatly cut into hexagonal and other angular shapes. The Giant’s Causeway is the result of ancient volcanic eruptions that happened at least 50 million years ago.

Irish legend has other explanations for the Giant’s Causeway, however. According to several myths, the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn McCool) built the structures as a bridge to Scotland. He had been challenged to a fight by Scottish giant Benandonner and wanted to face him without getting his feet wet.

The Giant’s Causeway is also called the Causeway of the Fomorians (Clochán na bhFomhórach) in Irish. The Fomorians were the very first inhabitants of Ireland. They were a race of supernatural beings, giants. In some stories they are half man, half goat, in others they are described as exceptionally beautiful.

Ancient Roman and medieval texts connect the Fomorians to biblical peoples, stating that they were African pirates from the race of Ham, actually Phoenicians expelled from Palestine. They came to Ireland to be even further away from the Israelites, the descendants of Shem.

Is all this just ancient legend and mythology? Or could some ancient giants actually have built the Giant’s Causeway? If so, for what purpose? Advanced technology must have been involved. Did ancient man have knowledge that we have lost since? Or were some alien forces involved?

Legend has it that Fionn mac Cumhaill is not dead. He and his troops are just asleep somewhere underground. They will arise some day when Ireland is in trouble. Could this actually have meaning? Will our ancient helpers actually return to Earth some day?

Herodium Ancient Acropolis or Launching Station

ANCIENT SITES - Herodium or Herodion is the highest hill in the Judean desert. It is said to be an acropolis, built by king Herod around 20 BCE to commemorate his victory over the Parthians. Herodium is a spectacular site and an important tourist attraction in the region. 

Herodium Alien Tomb

The hill is 2,487 (758 meters) high and is conical in shape. It served as a fortress for king Herod’s luxurious palace, that was built inside. Excavation of the palace began in 1972. It was a luxurious place at the time, with many special facilities like a theater and bath houses. In 2007, archeologists announced that they had found king Herod’s tomb inside the hill. His sarcophagus is largely destroyed, supposedly by rebels who later occupied Herodium and had no love for the ancient king.

Deeper into the hill, some even more fascinating structures have been found. There are a number of tunnels in Herodium that lead to what appear to be huge water storage tanks deep down inside. Archeologists think that king Herod not only built the palace, but that he actually constructed the hill itself. This must have been a huge effort that required advanced knowledge of building techniques.

It could make sense that the king wanted to secure water supply in times of war. On the other hand, if we look at aerial photos of Herodium, other things come to mind. It simply looks like an advanced piece of technology. We can’t help but wonder if the storage tanks were filled with water or with something else. What if they were used – perhaps in times long before king Herod arrived at the scene – to store some kind of fuel?

The hill could just as well be a launching station as a fortress. Maybe it is much older than 20 BCE and was built by ancient people or ancient visitors that had the technology to do this. Who needed such constructions, not to defend themselves but to land, fuel and service their spacecraft on?

Let’s hope that further research at the site will reveal more of the history of Herodium in the near future.

Ancient Giant Virus Revived From the Ice, more Discoveries Expected

ANCIENT MYSTERIES - As climate change causes temperatures to rise, ice is melting in the world’s polar regions. All sorts of objects and creatures that were conserved in permafrost over tens of thousands of years, are now re-surfacing.

This is paradise for scientists. So far intact mammoths have already been unearthed, for example. And the smaller things like plants and micro-organisms could prove to be even more interesting.
 Scientists are now starting to actually revive life from the past. They have already grown a plant out of 30,000 year old fruit found in permafrost. And now a giant virus has been brought back to life, which is actually still contagious (only for amoebae, fortunately).

We can’t even begin to imagine what all this could lead to. Some say that in the near future, many ancient organisms will reappear from the melting ice and come back to life all by themselves. The scientists’ experiments could also have great impact on the world’s population. Just imagine one of those giant viruses actually mutates and breaks out.

These ancient, frozen organisms could also shed new light on the ancient alien theory. It aliens visited our planet in the distant past and even lived here, wouldn’t we find traces of them in the permafrost? Even their DNA?

And even if we don’t find any aliens, new discoveries in the permafrost will give us tons of information of how other creatures and humans on Earth have developed. If there was alien interference with life on Earth, we should find irregularities, sudden appearance or disappearance of life forms and such.

The parallel exploration of Mars makes all this even more fascinating. If there is a connection of life between the Earth and Mars, we may soon discover spectacular missing links!
