    Re: Mysteries in History....

    Yep, birds of a feather and all!
    Bimini Road, natural or man made?
    Natural

    Coral Castle, carved and built with conventional tools and methodologies or unfounded and lost knowledge of a metaphysical nature?
    Can't have it both ways, mathematics says it's possible with conventional tools and building technology.

    Tesla, right idea, wrong conclusions.

    Re: Mysteries in History....

    Apologies requested, I was bad. I've asked the kid and wife to get us to Mike's festival one of these years, but they admonish me for my eccentricities so I selfishly pass that along in sarcastic bites. Bad me.

    But they've been asleep for a while now and the effect has worn off.....

    Re: Mysteries in History....

    There are many mysteries that intrigue me, and others. If you are really interested in free energy, magnetics, electric anomalies and such, then you can sign up and join me and others on another forum devoted to this kind of phenomena, I am Stealth, on this forum www.energeticforum.com/renewable-energy/ Maybe we don't solve all the many mysteries on this forum, but we are not short on theories trying to solve them, for mankind and hopefully a new world. Good Luck rockhound

    This is from the book, THE GIZA POWER PLANT, by Christopher Dunn.


    The coral Castle mystery

    A paradigm shift in my perception of "antigravity" occurred when my
    coworker, Steven Defenbaugh, and I were discussing the subject with Judd
    Peck, the CEO of the company for which we both work. Peck asked the
    simple question, "What is antigravity?" In an attempt to define it I had to
    say, "A means by which objects can be lifted, overcoming the gravitational
    pull of the earth." As I spoke, it occurred to me that we were already apply-
    ing antigravitational techniques in our everyday life. When we get out of
    bed in the morning, we employ antigravity just by standing up. An air-
    plane, a rocket, a forklift truck, and an elevator are technologies devised to
    overcome the effects of gravity. Even a car rolling along on its wheels is an
    antigravity device. Without the wheels and the propulsion system, it would
    be just dead weight.

    I realized that I had been laboring under the assumption that in order
    to create an antigravity device, gravity should be a known and fully under-
    stood phenomenon and that, through the application of technology, out-
    of-phase gravity waves would have to be created in such a manner as to
    neutralize it. As any physicist will tell you, the nature of gravity still eludes
    us, as does the ability to produce interference gravity waves.

    So what if there is no such thing as gravity? What if the natural forces
    we already know about are sufficient to explain the noted phenomenon we
    have labeled as gravity? If, as Leedskalnin claimed, all matter consists of in-
    dividual magnets, wouldn't the known properties of a magnet be sufficient?
    We know that like poles repel, and unlike poles attract. We also know that
    we can suspend one magnet above another as long as we do not allow either
    of them to flip over so that the opposite poles attract each other. Magnets
    seek to attract and, left to themselves, will align their opposite poles to each
    other. A mag-lev train is a good example of an antigravity device employing
    magnets.

    The Earth, having the properties of a large magnet, generates streams
    of magnetic energy that follow lines of force. These lines of force have been
    noted for centuries (see figure 26). If we assume, as Leedskalnin did, that all
    objects consists of individual magnets, we also can assume that an attraction
    exists between these objects due to the inherent nature of a magnet seeking
    to align its opposite pole to another. Perhaps Leedskalnin's means of work-
    ing with the Earth's gravitational pull was nothing more complicated than
    devising a means by which the alignment of magnetic elements within his
    coral blocks was adjusted to face the streams of individual magnets he claimed
    are streaming from the Earth with a like repelling pole.

    A well-known method for creating magnetism in an iron bar is to align
    the bar with the Earth's magnetic field and strike the bar with a hammer.
    This blow vibrates the atoms in the bar and allows them to be influenced by
    the Earth's magnetic field. The result is that when the vibration stops, a
    significant number of the atoms have aligned themselves within this mag-
    netic field.

    Was this the method that Leedskalnin was using? It is a simple con-
    cept, and when I observed the devices in Leedskalnin's workshop, I could
    easily imagine the application of vibration and electromagnetism. His fly-
    wheel for creating electricity remains motionless, for the most part, until
    inquisitive tourists like me come along and give it a spin. After giving it a
    few revolutions, I realized that something was missing. The narrative I heard,
    while browsing around the castle, described Leedskalnin as using this de-
    vice to create electricity to power his electric lightbulbs. It was claimed that
    Leedskalnin did not have electricity, but I could not imagine this device
    being a useful and continuing source of power, considering Leedskalnin
    used only his right arm to turn the wheel. On closer examination of the
    piece, I found that the whole assembly was actually an old four-cylinder
    crankcase. His flywheel was mounted on the front end of the crankshaft
    and consisted of bar magnets that were sandwiched between two plates--
    the upper plate being a ring gear. To give it weight and to solidify the entire
    assembly, Leedskalnin had encased the bar magnets with cement. It then
    occurred to me that the photo of Leedskalnin with his hand on the crank
    handle--which is attached to the end of the shaft--may not accurately rep-
    resent his entire operation. It is possible that Leedskalnin was using the
    crank handle to start a reciprocating engine, now missing, which attached
    to one of the throws on the crankshaft. He would then be able to walk away
    and leave his flywheel running.

    I was now mystified. I had developed a notion that the bars attached to
    the flywheel were actually being used to develop vibration in the piece
    Leedskalnin was trying to lift. This idea did not make sense considering the
    type of material, size, and weight of the entire assembly. The crankcase was
    firmly attached to the coral block in his workshop, and even if it was not
    attached, it would be quite a feat to keep moving it about. There was one
    factor I needed to check out, though, before I headed back to Illinois. I had
    tested the bar magnet with a pocketknife. The knife was attracted to each bar.
    I needed to know, conclusively, the arrangement of the poles in the wheel--
    to see, indeed, whether the assembly was capable of creating electricity.

    I headed for the nearest strip mall to look for a hardware store so that I
    could buy a bar magnet. The first one had just what I needed--and for only
    $1.75. Feeling rather pleased, I returned to Coral Castle.

    Once there, I headed back into Leedskalnin's workshop and put the
    magnet to the test. I held it a short distance away from the spokes of the
    flywheel while giving it a spin. Sure enough, I found out what I had come
    for. The magnet pushed and pulled in my grasp as the wheel rotated. Look-
    ing around the space, I gazed at a jumble of various devices, lying, hanging,
    and leaning about the room (see Figure 27). There were radio tuners, bottles
    with copper wire wrapped around them, spools of copper wire, and other
    various and sundry plastic and metal pieces that looked as if they had fallen
    out of an old radio set. Leedskalnin's workshop also contained chains, block
    and tackle, and other items that one might find lying around a junkyard.
    Some items were missing, though. Photographs of Leedskalnin at work show
    three tripods--made of telephone poles--that have boxes attached to the
    top. These objects, however, are not to be found at Coral Castle. What is
    striking in the photograph is that the block of coral being moved is seen off
    to the side of the tripod. Perhaps Leedskalnin had moved the tripod after
    raising the block out of the bedrock. Another interesting observation is that
    the block and tackle that can be found inside the workshop is nowhere to be
    seen in the photograph. There are spools of copper wire in his workshop,
    and two wrappings of copper wire hang from nails in the wall. One was
    round copper and the other flat copper. In a narrative that visitors can hear
    at various recording stations around the compound, it is stated that at one
    time Leedskalnin had a grid of copper wire suspended in the air. Looking at
    the photograph again, one can see that there is a cable draped around the
    tripod and running down to the ground. Perhaps the arrangement of tri-
    pods was more related to the suspension of his copper grid than to the sus-
    pension of block and tackle.

    If I were to try to replicate Leedskalnin's feat, I would begin with the
    premise that he was using his flywheel to generate a single-frequency tun-
    able radio signal. The box at the top of the tripod would contain the radio
    receiver (there are several tuners in Leedskalnin's workshop), and the cable
    coming from the box would be attached to a speaker that emitted sound to
    vibrate the coral rock at its resonant frequency. With the atoms in the coral
    vibrating (like those in an iron bar), I would then attempt to flip their mag-
    netic poles--which are naturally in an attraction orientation with the Earth--
    using an electromagnetic field.

    Re: Mysteries in History....

    Personally I've read about the castle and feel it was just made by a guy with alot of free time and very good stone working skills. It is impressive and his years of hard work paid off but I'd have to say no supernatural techniques were used. Just like the Pyramids and Stonehenge, anythings possible with enough time and work.

    No supernatural techniques were used. But it takes more than a lot of free time and very good stone working skills to do what Ed Leedskalnin did. A lot more.

    I'm also interested in these same type of "lines" within the human body.
    Been studying up on it, pretty interesting theories being developed in the field of medicine using similar "vibrational" techniques.

    You're gonna love that book. It's one of my favorites.

    Re: Mysteries in History....

    I'd like to know how many of you have been there...walked the land? Touched his work? Pushed on the "door?"

    Really, I'm seriously curious.
