OOparts - baffles the Evolutionists!

                       SECRETS OF THE LOST RACES  #2


Ooparts - Science in the Raw?



     The discoveries of the ooparts - witnesses of our most
ancient past have thus far been accidental. They are remnants of
a past we have never fully recognized or believed in. Because we
do not totally comprehend the scope of this mysterious pre-Flood
civilization, we stand aghast when confronted with the possible
relics from such a civilization. "But where do the cave men fit
in?" is a question often encountered when one discusses the
greatness of our ancestors. "We are still climbing the ladder of
social evolution," is another frequently heard comment. "There
simply is no place for a super-civilization in our past." And,
shrugging their shoulders at such naivete, the critics retreat to
their niches of complacency.
     Yet what are they going to do with the ooparts? Too many
have surfaced over the years for them simply to be ignored.

     Let's look at some of the recorded discoveries. 

     An interesting item appeared in many of the nation's
newspapers on April 10, 1967, reporting the discovery of an
artifact and human remains at the Rocky Point Mine in Gulman,
Colorado. At a depth of 400 feet below the surface, according to
an account in the Saturday Herald of Iowa City, the excavators
found human bone embedded in a silver vein. By geological
standards, the find was estimated to be several million years
old. But in addition to the bones, they uncovered a well-tempered
copper arrowhead four inches long. Neither bone nor arrowhead
belonged there, according to our way of thinking, yet there they
were - unexplainable and certainly unexpected. The historians and
geogists are unable to fit these remains into the theoretical
framework of evolution; partly because of this, the find has been
conveniently forgotten. But this strange discovery is not an
isolated one. In the June 1851 issue of Scientific American (Vol.
7, p.298) a report concerning a metallic vase that had been
dynamited out of solid rock on Meeting House Hill in Dorchester,
Massachusetts, was reprinted from the Boston Transcript. The
story said, "On putting the two parts together it formed a
bell-shaped vessel, 4 and 1/2 inches high, 6 and 1/2 inches at
the base, 2 and 1/2 inches at the top and about an eighth of an
inch in thickness. The body of this vessel resembles zinc in
color, or a composition metal in which there is a considerable
portion of silver. On the sides there are six figures of a
flower, a bouquet, beautifully inlaid with pure silver, and
around the lower part of the vessel, a vine, or wreath, inlaid
also with silver. The chasing, carving and inlaying are
exquisitely done by the art of some cunning craftsman. This
curious and unknown vessel was blown out of the solid pudding
stone, fifteen feet below the surface."


     Where did it come from?

     Neither the geologists nor the archaeologists know, but the
rock from which the man-made objet d'art was taken was estimated
by them to be at least several million years old. As is the case
with many puzzling discoveries, the vase was circulated from
museum to museum, and then disappeared. No doubt it is gathering
twentieth-century dust somewhere in a curator's dank basement...

     Precisely forty years later, on June 9, 1891, a somewhat
similar find was made by Mrs.S.W.Culp of Morrisonville, Illinois.
While she was shoveling coal into her kitchen stove, her
attention was drawn to one lump of coal which had broken in two,
revealing a gold chain of intricate workmanship. The
Morrisonville Times of June 11 reported, "Mrs.Culp thought the
chain had been dropped accidentally in the coal, but as she
undertook to lift the chain up, the idea of its having been
recently dropped was shown to be fallacious, for as the lump of
coal broke, it separated almost in the middle, and the circular
position of the chain placed the two ends near to each other; and
as the lump separated, the middle of the chain became loosened
while each end remained fastened to the coal. . . . This is a
study for the students of archaeology who love to puzzle their
brains out over the geological construction of the Earth from
whose ancient depth the curious are always dropping out."

     The paper's editor really didn't know how to handle this
bizarre discovery, but neither did the geologists, for the coal
sample was supposedly from the Carboniferous period and so was
thought to be several million years old.

     The Morrisonville chain was in no way unique, for another
gold artifact of unknown origin was discovered in 1844 in a
quarry near Rutherford Mills, England. On June 22 of that year,
workmen blasting granite out of the pit suddenly came upon a gold
thread eight feet below the surface, embedded in rock judged by
geologists to be 60 million years old. Investigators sent by the
London Times reported that in their opinion the thread had indeed
been of artificial manufacture.

     Artifacts of precious metal have not been the only objects
unearthed from solid rock. The Springfield (Illinois) Republican
stated in 1851 that a businessman named Hiram de Witt had brought
back with him from a trip to California a piece of auriferous
quartz about the size of a man's fist, and while de Witt was
showing the rock to a friend, it slipped from his hand and split
upon striking the floor. In the center of the quartz, they
discovered a cut-iron six-penny nail, slightly corroded but
entirely straight, with a perfect head. The age of the quartz,
you wonder? Scientists conclude that it is in excess of a million
years!

     But this wasn't the first nail discovered. Six years before
this find, Sir David Brewster made a report to the British
Association for the Advancement of Science which created quite a
stir. A nail obviously of human manufacture had been found
half-embedded in a granite block excavated from the Kindgoodie
Quarry in northern Britain. It was badly corroded, but
identifiable, nonetheless. Once again, the granite was determined
to be at least 60 million years old.

     Still another out-of-place artifact, a two-inch metal screw,
was discovered in a piece of feldspar unearthed in 1865 from the
Abbey Mine in Treasure City, Nevada. The screw had long since
oxidized, but its form, particularly the shape of its threads,
could easily be seen within the feldspar. Here too this discovery
played havoc with accepted scientific theories, for how the
impression of a two-inch metal screw could be found in something
thought to be several million years old clearly perplexed the
examiners.


The Salzburg Cube

     The out-of-place objects that have been found in the various
rock strata not only reveal evidence of simple metal production,
but also indicate that the antediluvians had the ability to shape
metal by machines and that they used metal in the construction of
complicated machinery.

     In 1885, in the foundry of the Austrian Isador Braun of
Vocklabruck, a block of coal dating from the Tertiary period was
broken open. Inside was discovered a small metal cube. Fascinated
by this sudden find, Braun's son took the mysterious cube to the
Salzburg Museum, where it was subjected to meticulous examination
by the Austrian physicist Karl Gurls.
     Tests indicated the cube was composed of a steel-and-nickel
alloy. It measured 2.64 by 2.64 by 1.85 inches, weighed 1.73
pounds, and had a specific gravity of 7.75. The edges of this
strange cube were perfectly straight and sharp; four of its sides
were flat, while the two remaining sides, opposite each other,
were convex. A rather deep groove had been cut all the way around
the cube about midway up its height. There was no doubt that the
cube was machine-made, and it seemed to be part of a larger
mechanism.
     Unfortunately the cube disappeared from the Salzburg Museum
in 1910, and during the bombings of the Second World War the
museum's inventory files relating to the time period when the
cube was on exhibit (1886-1910) were completely destroyed.
     However, there is still sufficient evidence to support the
authenticity of the find, for an account of its discovery was
published in the scientific journals Nature (London, 1886) and
L'Astronomie (Paris, 1887).


The Coso Artifact

     Another equally controversial find was made more recently.
On February 13, 1961, three rock hunters, Mike Mikesell, Wallace
Lane and Virginia Maxey, were collecting geodes about six miles
northeast of Olancha, California. On this particular day, while
searching in the Coso Mountains, they found a stone located near
the top of a peak approximately 4,300 feet above sea level and
about 340 feet above the dry bed of Owens Lake. The rockhounds
mistakenly identified it as a geode, a round stone with a hollow
interior lined with crystals, though it bore traces of fossil
shells. The following day, when Mikesell cut the stone in half,
ruining a ten-inch diamond saw in the process, he saw that it
contained not crystals but rather something totally unfamiliar.
Inside were the remains of some form of mechanical device.

     Beneath the outer layer of hardened clay, pebbles, and
fossil inclusions was a hexagonal layer of an unknown substance
softer than agate or jasper. This layer surrounded a
three-quarter-inch-wide cylinder made of solid porcelain or
ceramic, and in the center of the cylinder the finders discovered
a two-millimeter shaft of bright metal. This shaft, the rock
enthusiasts discovered, was magnetic and showed no signs of
oxidation. Circling the ceramic cylinder were rings of copper,
and these also had not corroded.

     Not knowing what to do with their unusual find, they sent
the object to the Charles Ford Society, an organization
specializing in examining extraordinary things. X-rays taken of
the fossil-encrusted rock revealed further evidence that the
content of the "geode" was indeed some form of mechanical
apparatus. The photographs indicated that the metallic shaft was
corroded at one end, but the other end was affixed to a spring or
helix of metal. The Coso artifact, as it is now known, is
believed to be more than just a piece of machinery. The finely
shaped ceramic and metallic shaft and copper components hint at
some form of electrical instrument. It bears a close resemblance
to a spark plug, but there are certain features - particularly
the spring or helix terminal - that do not correspond to any
spark plug known today. To complicate the mystery surrounding
this strange little instrument, the geologists tell us that the
rock in which it was found has to be at least half a million
years old.

     The controversy in which these finds are enveloped concerns
the dates that have been assigned to them because of the strata
in which they were discovered. There is no doubt that Mrs.Culp
did find the gold chain in Carboniferous rock, and the discovery
of the gold thread in the quarry near Rutherford Mills is also a
matter of record, as are Hiram de Witt's iron nail, Sir David
Brewster's report, and the metal screw found in the Abbey mine.
But there is one vital factor that must not be overlooked: that
the dates given for their origin cannot be relied on for
accuracy. No conscientious geologist will dare attach any degree
of certainty to the various dates given to the different layers
of the earth's crust. It is more reasonable to look at the
artifacts in the light of Deluge geology, which maintains that
the stratified rock is the result of soil laid down by water.
This signifies that the metal objects encased in the rocks were
buried during the Flood, and thus their manufacture would date
from before the Deluge. The ooparts certainly set the theories of
the geologists against those of the historians, for one group
holds stubbornly to the million-year-age theory, and the orthodox
historians definitely are unwilling to accept the authenticity of
a machine-made cube in a block of coal dating back to the
Tertiary period. To them the existence of a highly advanced
civilization one hundred million years ago is incredible. This
exaggerated time element must be rejected. Since we acknowledge
that coal is a product of vegetation destroyed, compressed and
buried by water, the Salzburg cube, found in the so-called
Tertiary coal, must therefore date from the pre-Flood period.
Because the Coso artifact was found in sedimentary rock, we must
conclude that this too was deposited during the great Flood. What
makes these artifacts significant to us is that they reveal that
the antediluvians had progressed beyond mere metal production and
had obviously learned how to utilize certain forms of energy - in
this case electricity - several thousand years before the
reintroduction of this knowledge into our civilization.

     For years now, a slow but methodical search has been
conducted to find the elusive ark of Noah, the ship that bridged
the gap between the antediluvian and postdiluvian civilizations.
We have always thought of it as a simple wooden ship, of which we
know only the approximate dimensions. I have participated in
numerous discussions speculating about the possible contents of
the ship, yet in all those long, thought-provoking hours, no one
ever thought of Noah and his family as members of a highly
civilized race. Problems of waste disposal, ventilation, air
conditioning, maintenance and lighting were disposed of with a
casual wave of the hand.

     "Their civilization wasn't far enough advanced for a
sophisticated technology," was the usual consensus. "Don't look
for the impossible."

     Can it be that we were all wrong?  


ELECTRICITY

     Let's take a look at the Genesis description of the Flood nd
the survival vessel, and focus our attention on two references.

     In this account we find two indications that lead us to
believe that electricity may have played a vital role in the
operation of the ark. One reference is found in Genesis 8:6,
where the Hebrew word "challon" or "opening" is used, referring
to the window through which Noah released the birds. The other
reference, however, utilizes a different word "tsohar" - which is
translated as "window" but does not mean window or opening at
all! Where it is used (twenty-two times in the Old Testament),
its meaning is given as "a brightness, a brilliance, the light
of the noonday sun." Its cognates refer to something that
"glistens, glitters or shines." Many Jewish scholars of the
traditional school identify tsohar as "a light which has its
origins in a shining crystal." For centuries Hebrew tradition has
described the tsohar as an enormous gem or pearl that Noah hung
from the rafters of the ark, and which, by some power contained
within itself, illuminated the entire vessel for the duration of
the Flood voyage.

     Noah's light source seems to have been preserved in history
for hundreds of years, for we find indications that King Solomon
of Israel may have used it in about 1000 B.C. An ancient Jewish
manuscript entitled "The Queen of Sheba and Her Only Son
Menyelek," translated by Sir E.A.Wallis Budge, contains this
statement: "Now the House of Solomon the King was illuminated as
by day, for in his wisdom he had made shining pearls which were
like unto the sun, the moon and the stars in the roof of his
house."
     In view of this, it is not surprising that Solomon himself
once wrote, " . . . there is no new thing under the sun. Is there
any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been
already of old time which was before us." (Eccl.1:9-10).

     Electricity in one form or another has surfaced throughout
the centuries. According to the historian Josephus Goriondes,
Alexander the Great wrote to his teacher during his conquest of
Persia that an island located off the coast of India was
inhabited by men who ate raw fish and spoke a language akin to
Greek. They believed that at one time Cainan, the great-grandson
of Adam, was entombed on their island. Prior to the Flood, the
tradition went, a high tower was situated over the sepulcher,
protecting it in a remarkable way. Anyone who approached the tomb
was struck dead by a flash of lightning that was discharged from
the top of the tower. Of course, all was destroyed by the Flood,
but the story of the tower and the tomb had been perpetuated by
every generation inhabiting the island since the great
catastrophe.

     What makes this tradition even more intriguing is that
Cainan was a "craftsman," the inventor of many crafts. According
to Bible chronology he died around 3819 B.C., which means that he
lived for nearly a century following Tubalcain's discovery of the
art of metallurgy. In keeping with his craftsmanship, Cainan, in
the crowning years of his life, may have combined Tubalcain's
knowledge of the properties of metals with his own ingenuity, and
become the first man to discover and utilize the power of
electricity. This certainly is not an illogical assumption when
we have evidence that electricity was used after the Flood by
craftsmen, the gold and silver-smiths of Babylonia and Persia.

     Another item concerning pre-Flood electricity comes to us
from a fragment of a Sumerian text cited by the well-known
archaeologist S.N.Kramer in his book "History Begins at Sumer"
(p.200). The quoted text speaks of "Ziusudra, the King, the
Preserver of the Seed of Mankind" and how he constructed a "huge
boat which was tossed about" in a flood that overwhelmed the
land. Ziusudra is identical to Berosus Xisuthros and the older
Sumerian Utnapishtim. The Sumerian text also mentions that in the
preparation of Ziusudra's "huge boat," the hero Utu brought "his
rays [of the sun] into the boat, in order to give it light." Utu
corresponds to Ubarat-utu in the Weld-Blundell Sumerian list, who
was the eighth "king" of the ten pre-Flood rulers - the
counterpart of the Biblical Methuselah. Bible chronologists state
that Cainan, the discoverer of electricity, died in 3819 B.C.;
and Noah, the utilizer of the electric tsohar in the ark, was
born in 3998 B.C., which means that the two were not
contemporaries and that Cainan was not the one who contributed
his discovery to the ark. However, Methuselah was 548 years of
age when Cainan died, and since he continued to live another 421
years, he certainly was present during the entire period of
construction of the ark. Thus, having been a contemporary of both
Cainan and Noah, he may have been the individual, as indicated in
the Sumerian legend, who relayed the secrets of electric power to
Noah.     


BATTERY POWER

     Electricity, however, does not seem to have been the only 
energy source of which the antediluvians had knowledge, for there
are a number of out-of-place finds and historical records which
suggest that they manipulated a wide range of power potentials.

     In Genesis 6:14, Noah was commanded to make the ark
waterproof in a specific way: "[Thou] shalt pitch it within and
without with pitch." The word for pitch as it is used here is the
Hebrew "kopher" thought to be related to the Assyrian kupur -
which means bitumen or asphalt. Now, asphalt is a petroleum
product, and as we know, natural petroleum was formed by
vegetable and animal remains that were subjected to tremendous
heat and pressure. The Creationist geologists believe that this
occurred when antediluvian life forms were buried by the Flood.
(Actually it was the flood of Genesis 1:2 that created the coal
and oil beds - Keith Hunt).

     Yet, the Genesis account clearly states that Noah was to
waterproof the ark with asphalt, which raises the question, Was a
petroleum product such as asphalt in existence before the Flood?
Yes! It must have been, and since it did not happen naturally, we
must assume it was produced artificially, which presupposes a
highly advanced knowledge of chemistry, particularly in the area
of hydrocarbons. If the antediluvians were knowledgeable in
hydrocarbon chemistry and production, then the entire range of
petroleum products was within their grasp, from waterproof
sealants (the "pitch" of the ark) to plastics and other synthetic
materials. Most important, however, they would have been able to
produce machine lubricants and engine fuel.
     Is it mere chance that the root word of chemistry - chemia -
is attributed to khem, the ancient name for the land of Egypt, or
the land of Kham, derived from the Biblical Ham, one of the three
sons of Noah?
     We do not know which of Noah's sons transmitted the
knowledge of electricity to the succeeding generations, but the
fact that it survived the Flood is certain, as modern research
into the secrets of the ancients furnishes us with ample
evidence.
     In 1938, Dr.Wilhelm Konig, a German archaeologist employed
by the State Museum in Baghdad, Iraq, was aimlessly rummaging
through the basement of the museum when he came upon a find that
was to drastically alter all concepts of ancient science. It was
a storage box containing a number of two-thousand-year-old clay
pots which had been excavated at Kujut Rabua, a village southeast
of Baghdad.
     At first glance the pots were noticeably unusual. Each one
was 6 inches high and housed a cylinder of sheet copper 5 inches
high and 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter. The edges of the cylinders
seemed to have been soldered with a 60/40 lead-tin alloy, which
is comparable to the solder in use today. The bottoms of the
mysterious cylinders were capped with copper discs and sealed
with bitumen or asphalt. Another insulating layer of bitumen
sealed the tops of the pots and was also used to hold in place
iron rods suspended into the center of the copper cylinders. The
rods showed unmistakable evidence of having been corroded by an
acid solution, long since evaporated.
     With a background in mechanics, Dr.Konig immediately
recognized that this configuration of copper, iron and acid was
not a chance arrangement, but that the clay pots were nothing
less than ancient electric cells. Confirmation of his
identification came after the Second World War when science
historian Willy Ley, working with Willard Gray of the General
Electric High Voltage Laboratory in Pittsfield, Massachusetts,
constructed a duplicate model of the ancient clay pot cells. They
discovered when they added copper sulfate, acetic acid or citric
acid - all of which were well known two thousand years ago - the
cells produced between 1 and 1/2 and 2 volts of electricity.
     Generation of electric current by the same means was not
possible in our modern civilization until 1800.

     More such electric cells were found. Four similar clay pots
containing copper cylinders were unearthed in a magician's hut
near Tel Omar (Seleucia), also near Baghdad. Found with these
pots were thin iron and copper rods which may have been used to
connect the cells into a series - a battery - in order to produce
a stronger voltage. Ten other cells were also uncovered at
Ktesiphon - again in proximity to the city of Baghdad - by
Professor E. Kuhnel of the Staatliches Museum in Berlin. These
were found broken down into their component parts, as though they
had been mass-produced and their manufacturer had been
interrupted before assembling the pieces into working batteries!

     The ancient batteries found in the Baghdad Museum and
elsewhere in Iraq all date from the Parthian period of Persian
occupation, between 250 B.C. and A.D.650. However, electroplated
objects, which presuppose the use of some form of battery, have
been discovered in Iraq in Babylonian ruins dating back to 2000
B.C. It would appear that the Persians and later craftsmen in
Baghdad inherited their batteries from one of the earliest
civilizations in the Middle East.


ELECTROPLATING

     Electroplated objects were also found in Egypt by a famous
nineteenth-century French archaeologist Auguste Mariette.
Excavating in the area of the Sphinx of Gizeh, Mariette came upon
a number of artifacts at a depth of 60 feet. In the Grand
Dictionaire Universal du 19th Siecle, he described the artifacts
as "pieces of gold jewelry whose thinness and lightness make one
believe they had been produced by electroplating, an industrial
technique that we have been using for only two or three years."

     Down through the years, diverse sections of the world have
yielded many accounts of bizarre and seemingly unexplainable
lights, many of which may well have had their source in electric
power.

     In West Irian - formerly Dutch New Guinea - is a village
near Mount Wilhelmina with a layout of artificial illumination
that in brightness equals any system we have in our western
world. In a United Press dispatch in 1963 Harold Guard quotes
visitors to the hamlet as saying that "they were terrified to see
many moons suspended in the air and shining with great
brightness." Other visitors have described these "moons" as huge
stone balls that began to glow with a mysterious bright light as
soon as the sun disappeared behind the tangled overgrowth of the
jungle. Mounted on tall pillars, they projected a luminous glow
over the entire village. This may be the same phenomenon
described in 1601 by Barco Cenenera, who wrote about the
conquistadors discovery of the city of Granmoxo near the source
of the Paraguay River in the Planalto do Mato Grosso. He wrote,
"On the summit of a 7 and 3/4-meter pillar was a great moon which
illuminated all the lake, dispelling darkness."

     We know from the historical record that such secret Hebrew
societies as the Kabala preserved the knowledge of electricity as
late as the medieval period. Eliphas Levi, in his Histoire de la
Magie, records the story of a mysterious French rabbi named
Jechiele who was an advisor in the thirteenth-century court of
Louis IX. Jechiele, his contemporaries report, often astounded
the king with his "dazzling lamp that lighted itself." The lamp
possessed no oil or wick, and Jechiele placed it in front of his
house for all to see. What the lamp's secret source of energy
was, the rabbi never revealed.

     Another device, one with which Jechiele used to protect
himself, was a door knocker that literally shocked his enemies.
The thirteenthcentury chroniclers tell how he "touched a nail
driven into the wall of his study, and a crackling, bluish spark
immediately leapt forth. Woe to anyone who touched the iron
knocker at that moment: he would bend double, scream as if he had
been burned, then he would run away as fast as his legs could
carry him." It would appear that Jechiele pushed a dische button
that sent an electric current into the iron knocker on his door.

     The ancients may have had more sources of light than we can
imagine, and there are numerous indications that this was so.

     When the sepulcher of Pallas was opened near Rome in the
early 1400s, it was found to be lighted by a lantern which had
kept the inside of the tomb illuminated for more than two
thousand years. Pausanias, who lived during the second century
A.D., writes that the temple of Minerva had a light that could
burn for at least a year. St.Augustine (A.D.354-430) claims that
in an Egyptian temple dedicated to Isis a lamp burned which
neither wind nor water could extinguish.

     Until the invention of electric lighting in 1890, we
possessed only candles, torches and oil lamps, light sources that
smoked and left sooty deposits on ceilings. No trace of smoke,
however, was ever found either in the pyramids of Egypt or in the
subterranean tombs of the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. It
has been thought that perhaps the Egyptians used some complicated
system of lenses and mirrors to bring sunlight into the burial
chambers, but no remains of any such system have ever been found.
A number of ancient tombs, in fact, have tunnels and passageways
that are too complex for a mirror system to have brought
sufficient light into the inner chamber. The only alternative is
that the Egyptians had a smokeless light source. Since the
Egyptians possessed electricity to electroplate gold jewelry - as
Mariette discovered - they may also have utilized it to
illuminate their tombs.

     How sophisticated were the Egyptians in their understanding
and utilization of electricity? In Room 17 in the Egyptian Temple
of Dendera, built during the Ptolemaic period and dedicated to
the goddess Hathor, a very mysterious picture is engraved on the
wall. Egyptologists have been at a loss to explain the meaning of
this picture in religious or mythological terms. Several
electronics engineers, however, believe it contains information
of a very different nature.

     First, to the extreme right appears a box on top of which
sits an image of the Egyptian god Horus. On his head is his
symbol - also the symbol of divine energy - the disc of the sun.
This identifies the box as the energy source. Attached to the box
is the representation of a braided cable, which electromagnetics
engineer Professor John Harris has identified as a virtually
exact copy of engineering illustrations used today for
representing a bundle of conducting electrical wires. The cable
runs from the box the full length of the floor of the picture and
terminates both at the ends and at the bases of two very peculiar
objects. Each of these objects rests on a pillar which Professor
Harris has identified as a high-voltage insulator. Each object is
also pictured as being operated by two Egyptian priests.
     The two peculiar objects in the temple picture look very
much like TV picture tubes, an impression which may not be far
from the truth, for electronics technician N. Zecharius has
identified the objects as Crookes tubes, the forerunners of the
modern television tube.
     In simplified terms, a Crookes tube consists of a vacuum
contained in a glass encasement within which a fluorescent ray of
electrons can be produced. When the tube is in operation, the ray
originates where the cathode electrical wire enters the tube, and
from there the ray extends the length of the tube to the opposite
end. In the temple picture, the electron beam is represented as
an outstretched serpent. The tail of the serpent begins where the
cable from the energy box enters the tube, and the serpent's head
touches the opposite end. In Egyptian art, the serpent was the
symbol of divine energy.
     Now, the temple picture shows one tube on the extreme left
of the picture to be operating under normal conditions. But in
the case of the second tube, situated closer to the energy box on
the right, an interesting experiment has been portrayed. Michael
R. Freedman, an electrical and electromagnetics engineer,
believes that the solar disc on Horus's head is a Van de Graaff
generator, an apparatus which collects static electricity. A
baboon is portrayed holding a metal knife between the Van de
Graaff solar disc and the second tube. Under actual conditions,
the static charge built up on the knife from the generator would
cause the electron beam inside the Crookes tube to be diverted
from the normal path, because the negatively charged knife and
the negatively charged beam would repel each other. In the temple
picture, the serpent's head in the second tube is turned away
from the end of the tube, as though repulsed by the knife in the
baboon's hand.

     When one looks at the temple picture as a whole, every
aspect represents an important feature of a serious scientific
experiment. The one tube with the straight serpent is the control
(or the tube operating under normal conditions, for comparison);
the other with the repelled serpent is the experimental tube (or
the tube upon which new conditions have been imposed). Even the
use of a baboon to hold the knife shows that the Egyptians were
well aware of the powerful energies they were dealing with an
the experiment themselves. The Crookes tube was of the
fluoroscope, an instrument that uses x-rays for diagnosing
internal injuries. We have no evidence as yet that the Egyptians
possessed the fluoroscope, but we do have indications that the
Hindus and Chinese did.


FLUOROSCOPE and X RAYS


     An Indian contemporary of Buddha, a physician named Jivaka,
was given the title King of Doctors about 500 B.C. Records tell
us that he had a "gem" which he used for diagnosis, and that when
a patient was placed before the gem it "illuminated his body as a
lamp lights up all objects in a house, and so revealed the nature
of his malady."
     Jivaka's magic gem disappeared in history, but three
centuries later there was discovered in the palace of Hien-Yang
in Shensi, a "precious mirror that illuminates the bones of the
body." The mirror was rectangular - 4 by 5 feet - and gave off a
strange light on both sides. The view of the organs of the body
that the mirror gave could not be obstructed by any obstacle,
which would be typical of the penetration power of x-rays.


ATOMIC POWER

     Is it possible that some of these light sources employed
energy-conversion methods like electricity, or could it have been
something more exotic? Is it possible that the ancients found
ways to harness atomic power in order to light small areas? In
our day and age we recognize that atomic power will be an
important source of energy for the future, but there are
indications that atomic power is not new. 

     Not long ago a surprising find was made in West Africa that
sheds new light on how far back in history atomic energy was
first (?) released.

     It was on September 25, 1972, when Dr.Francis Perrin, former
chairman of the French High Commission for Atomic Energy,
presented a report to the French Academy of Sciences concerning
the discovery of the remains of a prehistoric nuclear chain
reaction. Perrin's first inkling came when workers at the French
Uranium Enrichment Center observed that uranium ore from a new
mine at Oklo, 40 miles northwest of Franceville in Gabon, West
Africa, was markedly depleted of uranium 235. All uranium
deposits in the world today contain 0.715 per cent of U 235, but
the Oklo mine uranium showed levels as low as 0.621 per cent. The
only explanation that could be given for the missing U 235 was
that it had been "burned" in a chain reaction. Evidence in
support of this conclusion surfaced when investigators at the
French Atomic Center at Cadarache detected four rare elements -
neodymium, samarium, europium and cerium - in forms that are
typical of the residue from uranium fission! Dr.Perrin concluded
his report with the opinion that the Oklo uranium had undergone a
nuclear chain reaction which had been spontaneously set off by
natural causes. Since the Oklo uranium deposits were geologically
estimated to be 1.7 billion years old, Dr.Perrin suggested that
this is when the reaction took place, for at that time the
uranium would have been at its purest.

     Following the publication of Dr.Perrin's report by the
French Academy of Sciences, however, questions concerning his
conclusions were raised by many experts. Glenn T. Seaborg, former
head of the United States Atomic Energy Commission and Nobel
prize winner for his work in the synthesis of heavy elements,
pointed out that for uranium to "burn" in a reaction, conditions
must be exactly right.

     Water is needed as a moderator to slow down the neutrons
released as each uranium atom is split, in order to sustain the
chain reaction. This water must be extremely pure. Even a few
parts per million of any contaminant will "poison" the reaction,
bringing it to a halt. The problem is that no water that pure
exists naturally anywhere in the world!
     A second objection to Dr.Perrin's report involved the
uranium itself. Several specialists in reactor engineering
remarked that at no time in the geologically estimated history of
the Oklo deposits was the uranium ore rich enough in U 235 for a
natural reaction to have taken place. Even when the deposits
supposedly were first formed, because of the slow rate of
radioactive disintegration of U 235, the fissionable material
would have constituted only 3 per cent of the deposits - far too
low a level for a "burn." Yet a reaction did take place,
suggesting that the original uranium was far richer in U 235 than
a natural formation could have been.

     So what remains is evidence of a nuclear reaction that
cannot be explained by natural means. If nature was not
responsible, then the reaction must have been produced
artificially. Is it possible that the Oklo uranium is the residue
from an antediluvian reactor that was detroyed by the Flood and
redeposited in West Africa?

(No, it may have been the people then of West Africa did it
themselves - Keith Hunt).


ATOMIC PHYSICS

     Physicist Frederick Soddy made this significant statement
concerning knowledge of atomic physics in ancient myths and
legends on page 182 of his Interpretation of Radium (New York,
1920): "One is tempted to inquire how far the unsuspected aptness
of some of these beliefs and sayings to the point of view so
recently disclosed is the result of mere chance or coincidence,
and how far it may be evidence of a wholly unknown and
unsuspected ancient civilization of which all other relics have
disappeared. It is curious to reflect, for example, upon the
remarkable legends of the philosopher's stone, one of the
earliest and most universal beliefs, the origin of which, however
far back we penetrate into the records of the past, we probably
do not trace to its real source. The philosopher's stone was
accredited the power not only of transmuting metals, but of
acting as the elixir of life. Now, whatever the origin of this
apparently meaningless jumble of ideas may have been, it is
really a perfect but very slightly allegorical expression of the
actual present views we hold today. It does not require much
effort of the imagination to see in energy the life of the
physical universe and the key to the primary fountains of the
physical universe today known to be transmutation. Is, then, this
old association of the power of transmutation with," he
concludes, "the elixir of life merely a coincidence? I prefer to
believe it may be an echo from one of many previous epochs in the
unrecorded history of the world, of an age of men which trod
before the road we are treading today, in a past possibly so
remote that even th very atoms of its civilization literally have
had time to disintegrate."


PLATINUM

     Contrary to what orthodox historians would like to admit,
our ancient ancestors seem to have inherited an extremely
sophisticated knowledge of metal-working from an earlier
civilizationr. Not long ago, pre-Inca Peruvian ornaments and
other objects made of platinum were discovered. This poses a
serious problem, because in order to melt platinum, a temperature
of about 1,755 degrees Celsius must be reached. We have no
satisfactory answer to the question of how the ancient Peruvians
were able to produce such a heat.

     A few years ago a metal belt-fastener with open-work
ornamentation was found in China, in the burial site of the
famous general of the Chin dynasty, Chou Chu, who lived from A.D.
265 to 316. The fastener was examined by the Institute of Applied
Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and by the Dunbai
Polytechnic. Their analysis showed that the metal of the fastener
was an alloy of 5 per cent manganese, 10 per cent copper - and 85
per cent aluminum.
     Aluminum supposedly was not discovered until 1803 and not
produced successfully in pure form until 1854. Today, the process
of extracting aluminum from bauxite is very complicated and
involves the use of a Reverbier oven, refraction chamber and
regenerator, as well as electrolysis and temperatures exceeding
950 degrees Celsius.

     The question is, Where did the Chinese acquire these
elements of twentieth-century technology in the third century? It
is possible that they may have even possessed methods of
producing aluminum which are still unknown to us today.     
   

METAL HARDENING

     The ancient Palestinians see to have specialized in the
perfection of metal-hardening techniques. Professor Clifford
Wilson, while working for the Australian Institute of
Archaeology, made this observation concerning a Palestinian
bronze statue of Baal. One leg of the statue was missing, and
when metalworkers were commissioned to add a modern one, they
were surprised to find that they could not duplicate the original
bronze. To their dismay and frustration, it was harder than any
they could make.

     Ancient castings of large pieces as well as evidence of
advanced hardening techniques are also found in other parts of
the world. In the courtyard of Kutb Minar in Delhi, India, stands
the Ashoka Pillar, a column of cast iron weighing approximately 6
tons and standing 23 feet 8 inches high, with a diameter of 16
inches. The column had stood in the temple of Muttra, capped with
a Garuda, an image of the bird incarnation of the god Vishnu. But
Moslem invaders destroyed the Garuda and tore the column from its
original setting, reerecting it in Delhi in the eleventh century.
How long it had been at Muttra we are not certain. It bears the
inscription of an epitaph to King Chandragupta II, who died A.D.
413, signifying that it is perhaps fifteen hundred or more years
old.
     The iron pillar poses a real mystery, not only because of
its immense size, presupposing a sizeable casting job, but
because of its age. Under the Indian tropical heat and monsoon
downpours, a normal piece of iron manufactured in about 413 would
have corroded and disappeared long ago. The Ashoka iron column,
however, shows only traces of rust, and its existence after one
and a half millennia is a testimony to a sophisticated unknown
science which the ancients must have possessed.

     Another remarkable iron column exists at Kottenforst, a few
miles west of Bonn, Germany. Locally it is known as the Iron Man.
It has the appearance of a squared metal bar, with 4 feet 10
inches above ground and an estimated 9 feet beneath the surface.
The iron column was first mentioned in a fourteenth-century
document where it was described as marking a village boundary,
but there is evidence that the column is much older. Associated
with the Iron Man are an ancient stone walkway and the remains of
an aqueduct which runs straight toward the column. Like the iron
pillar of India, the Iron Man of Kottenforst shows some
weathering but very little trace of rust.


MORE ENIGMAS
THE GREAT PYRAMID

     While some evidence points to the antediluvians having had a
technological level that matched our own, there are also serious
indications that in certain areas they entered a sphere of
knowledge which has scarcely been nudged by our present-day
science. 

     One of the greatest enigmas in the world involves the
Pyramid of Cheops, better known as the Great Pyramid, located on
the west bank of the Nile at Gizeh, a short distance from Cairo.
It was built in the early Old Kingdom approximately 800 years
after the Flood and is purported to be the final resting place
for the pharaoh, but no concrete evidence of this has ever been
found. The role of the pyramid as a tomb has never totally
satisfied most investigators and chroniclers. It has often been
stated that this man-made mountain of 2,300,000 stone blocks must
have served another purpose than as merely the mausoleum of an
ancient ruler. From the fourth-century A.D. Roman historian
Ammianus Marcellinus to the ninth-century Arab savant Ibn Abd
Hokem, the writers record the legend that deep within the
interior of the pyramid mass were secret rooms containing the
lore of a forgotten civilization. The various chambers within the
pyramid have since been discovered and fully (?) explored, but
nothing of any significance was ever found in them - not even the
mummy for which the pyramid was built. We know now, however, that
there was a grain of truth in the old legends, for the knowledge
was not to be found in any hidden chamber; rather, it is believed
that the pyramid itself is the knowledge.

     The mysterious pyramids have been visited by many scientists
in the past and present, and a number of these men have noted
unusual phenomena associated with the Great Pyramid of Gizeh. Not
long after the turn of the century, the British inventor
Alexander Siemens traveled to Egypt to see the pyramid and,
accompanied by an Arab guide, climbed to the very top. On their
reaching the summit, the guide called his attention to the
curious fact that whenever he raised his hands with the fingers
outstretched, he would hear a ringing in his ears. Siemens
followed the Arab's example, but instead of hearing anything, he
felt a distinct prickling sensation. Guessing there was something
electromagnetic about what was happening, he quickly took a
newspaper he had brought with him, moistened it with the contents
of a wine bottle, and then wrapped the paper around the empty
bottle. In this manner he had quickly manufactured a Leyden jar -
a device which accumulates electrical energy. After holding the
apparatus over his head, he realized that it became increasingly
charged, to the point that sparks began to fly out of it. The
Arab guide, who knew nothing about electricity, accused his
tourist companion of witchcraft and attempted to seize Siemens by
the arm. At that instant, Siemens lowered his spark-shooting
bottle toward the man, giving the Arab such a shock that he was
thrown to the stones upon which the two stood.
     On recovering, the terrified guide scrambled down the
treacherous building blocks of the pyramid with scarcely a
backward glance, and was never seen again.

     Siemens concluded that for some reason the pyramid was
discharging a powerful flow of electromagnetic current, the "why"
of which he could not answer.

     A more recent experiment conducted at the Great pyramid's
sister structure, the neighboring Pyramid of Chephren, brought
the enigma of the energy flow to worldwide attention. In 1968 a
group of scientists from the Ein Shams University near Cairo
conducted a milliondollar experiment to measure the cosmic rays
passing through the pyramid. The goal was to determine whether
any undiscovered chambers still existed in the pyramid, for as
the cosmic rays strike the pyramid uniformly from all directions,
they should, if the pyramid was solid, be recorded uniformly by
the detection equipment. If there were vaults, however, the
detection equipment would then show a different strength for
those areas.
     For twenty-four hours a day for more than a year, magnetic
tapes faithfully recorded the cosmic rays received by the
detectors. Finally, at the termination of the experiment, the
tapes were taken to the Ein Shams University to be analyzed by
the IBM 1130 computer. The result was absolute chaos! Where there
should have been a relatively uniform reading among all the
tapes, the computer printouts that plotted the cosmic-ray
patterns revealed that the readings were different from day to
day.
     Dr.Amr Gohed, director of the experiment, was quoted in the
London Times of July 14, 1969, as saying:

"This is scientifically impossible. There is a mystery here which
is beyond explanation. . . . Call it what you will, occultism,
the curse of the pharaoh, sorcery or magic - there is some force
that defies the laws of science at work in the pyramid."

     Perhaps the most significant experiment concerning "pyramid
power" were carried out several years ago by a Frenchman named M.
Bovis. Arriving at the Great Pyramid in the stifling heat of the
day and eager to escape the suffocating temperature, he ventured
into the centermost of the pyramid's chambers, called the King's
Chamber. Ferreting among the accumulated garbage and debris, he
discovered the body of a dead cat. What surprised Bovis was that,
despite the humidity of the chamber air, the cat's body had not
decayed, but instead had mummified. It was completely dehydrated!

     A credible explanation for this strange occurrence was not
readily available, and Bovis was still perplexed about it when he
arrived home in France. There he constructed a scale model of the
Great Pyramid, with a base approximately one yard on a side.
Recalling that the Great Pyramid is one of the most accurately
oriented buildings known to engineering - its base is squared
only five seconds, or 1/720 of a degree, off from magnetic north
- he likewise aligned his pyramid model with the North Pole and
concluded his experiment by placing several dead animals about
one-third of the way up inside the pyramid. Without exception,
the bodies of the animals did not putrefy but slowly dried out.

     Whatever organic matter was placed with the pyramid, the
same phenomenon occurred. Brain tissue, when set in a regular
box, began to decay within a matter of hours, but while protected
by the pyramid's structure, it is reported to have remained
unaffected for a period of up to two months. It simply became
mummified, with a water loss of approximately 75 per cent.

     It was not until the 1950s that Bovis's work with pyramid
models came to the attention of Kark Drbal, a Czechoslovakian
radio engineer from Prague. He repeated Bovis's experiments and
experienced the same results. But he went one step further, and
the results of that experiment are still puzzling the experts.

     Drbal decided to subject a dull razor blade to the
mysterious power of the pyramid. To his delight, the dull blade
was transformed into a sharp one after fourteen days in the
pyramid. Familiar with the scientific method, he duplicated the
same experiment several times, with the same result - a force
acting within the pyramid restored the blade's edge to its
original sharpness.

     Visualizing a possible commercial market for his discovery,
Drbal tried to have it patented, calling it the "Cheops Pyramid
Razor Blade Sharpener." The Prague patent office, however, did
not share his obvious enthusiasm and flatly refused even to
consider its merits until its chief technical advisor constructed
a pyramid model for himself and tested it with one of his own
blades. To his surprise it worked, and as a result the "Pyramid
Sharpener" was patented in Czechoslovakia in 1959 unter Patent
No.91304. A small factory was built to produce little
six-inch-high cardboard pyramids, but within a short time it was
discovered that any type of construction material produced the
same effect. As a result Drbal's pyramids are now being made from
styrofoam.

     Since the introduction of Drbal's sharpening pyramids in
1960, a considerable amount of research has been conducted, both
in the West and behind the Iron Curtain, to unlock the secrets of
the pyramid's power. Most of this research has been conducted
along scientific lines, but recently, as the mystery of the
pyramid force has been probed deeper, science has been superseded
by the supernatural. In the United State, Canada, Europe and
Australia, pyramids are no longer being used to sharpen razor
blades but are rapidly becoming instruments of the occult and are
known as "Feedback-Mystic Pyramids." The prescribed technique,
according to the occultists, is to write a statement or a wish on
a piece of paper, insert it in a properly north-south-oriented
pyramid, and then pray to the forces within the pyramid to grant
the request. Those who have dealt with "pyramid power" in this
manner claim that "something" is indeed answering their prayers 
a degree above and beyond mere chance.

     But there's more from Czechoslovakia. Robert Pavlita,
another inventor, has taken a step beyond Drbal's pyramid and is
now experimenting with all types of shapes and combinations of
shapes. He has developed what is now known in psychic circles as
the "psychotronic generator," a "machine" that supposedly is able
to store up and run on energy which Pavlita claims originates
from the human mind. When the operator simply concentrates on
various points of the generator, the machine can attract
nonmagnetic material to itself, drive small motors placed in a
vacuum, purify polluted water, advance the growth of plants, and
heal diseases; and in addition to all of this, it is reputed to
be able to perform several occult extrasensory operations. The
inventor avows that it can read minds, control thoughts, foretell
the future, and communicate with entities that reside on another
plane of existence.

     What makes these "psychotronic generators" so intriguing is
that Pavlita admits - although somewhat reluctantly - that these
machines are not of his invention! Rather, he states that he
discovered the principle behind these incredible machines from a
number of extremely ancient manuscripts located in the Prague
library collection, which incidentally houses hundreds of relic
writings still waiting to be deciphered and translated. The
manuscripts selected by Pavlita were treatises on black magic -
more specifically, magic based on a unified occult-technology
developed by an advanced civilization antedating Egypt and
Sumeria.

     "Pyramid power" and the "psychotronic generators" have a
twofold implication. First, their ancient origin and highly
sophisticated technology point to their source as having been
before the Flood. They show that in the final days prior to the
Flood the antediluvians had advanced in knowledge to a point
where they crossed the line separating pure science from pure
occultism. In some way they had managed to fuse the supernatural
with the natural and in the process had destroyed their
civilization.

     The second implication is far more ominous. The intensity of
the research into the mystery of "pyramid power" and
psychotronics is now rapidly approximating the same level that
the antediluvians reached before the Flood.

     Today, both science and occult knowledge are beginning to
approach their theoretical limits - aiming for the ultimate in
technical and spiritual manipulation. Is it perhaps possible that
we are again edging closer to the danger point?
