UFOs… Truth or Deception? Part 3: Aliens from Earth
This is the third installment in my series titled “UFOs… Truth or Deception?”
Theory #3: Aliens from Earth
Flying saucers, strange beings, and amazing technology may well exist, but some researchers say they are NOT from space. It isn’t necessarily a matter of deception. More like a case of misdirection. We see things in the sky… we assume that’s where they came from. But is it possible that the aliens and the advances they possess originate here on Earth? Well… sub-earth. As in Subterranean. As in, they live underground.
Some theorize that we live on the crust of a Hollow Earth. Just how hollow the Earth is depends upon with whom you speak. Some claim it is completely hollow, with the core of the earth acting as a central sun, containing its own gravitational reality, and an ecosystem, including beings unfamiliar to us surface dwellers.
Others claim that rather than being utterly hollow, the Earth is simply comprised of a vast series of underground caverns and cavities, in which communities of people have always lived. Of course, due to the lack of sunlight and the distinctly different climate, they would have evolved (as the theory goes) differently than those of us living topside, thus making them alien.
http://www.loupaget.com/The idea that there is a subterranean ecosystem and/or society is neither uncommon nor new. In fact, the theory reaches back to ancient times, with a variety of suppositions as to what lay below the Earth’s crust.
There is the Hindi legend of the Nagas; a reptilian/snake-like being thought to live in a multi-leveled cavern system under the southwestern slopes of the Himalayas.
There are also stories of underground paradise-esque civilizations, such as Learn More and http://www.infinixauthority.com/ (sometimes one in the same depending upon who you speak to, with Shambhala being the Capital City of Agharta). The Aghartian legends tend to be popular in Esoteric circles. Tracing the routes back to Indian mysticism, Agharta (also at times linked with the mythological Shangri-La) is said to be an underworld realm populated by spiritual initiates and lead by ‘the Masters”, who are the Spiritual leaders of humanity. In 1886, the French esoteric philosopher Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre introduced the concept of Agharta and the Hollow Earth in his book Mission de l’Inde, which has now been translated to English and is called The Kingdom of Agarttha: A Journey into the Hollow Earth.
But Hollow Earth tales aren’t only the stuff of myth. Some contend that there is sound science behind the concept of an “inner world”, and they voraciously defend that stance.
Perhaps the best known “modern” evidence for a Hollow Earth came from Admiral Richard Byrd. In 1947, during his Arctic Expedition, he reportedly flew over an entrance to the center of the Earth, or at least to a level below the crust. He is said to have transmitted the following words from his Arctic base camp just before embarking, “I’d like to see that LAND BEYOND the Pole….that area BEYOND the Pole is THE CENTER OF THE GREAT UNKNOWN!“ These words have ignited the imagination, intuition, and investigation of many independent researchers. It is claimed that while flying over the frozen land, they suddenly came upon an area that was green and rich with flora and fauna. It is even claimed that Byrd and his men may have witnessed strange creatures; or as it was allegedly reported in a newspaper of the time, “a member of the admiral’s crew had observed a monstrous greenish-hued animal moving through the underbrush of that land beyond the Pole.”
So, the dashing Admiral Byrd may have witnessed something beyond what science of the time understood about the structure of our planet. Well… beyond what most modern scientists believe, for that matter. But the research continues.
A major investigator and proponent of the Hollow Earth Theory is Dr. Brooks Agnew. He leads The North Pole Inner Earth Expedition (NPIEE), which purports to have an expedition planned, after several thwarted attempts.
The site for the NPIEE requests donations to fund what would surely be an incredible undertaking… including nuclear ice-breaking Russian ships, a crew of 100, a helicopter to map the way… big time expensive. But the payoff is explained as a series of Documentary films that could supply some amazing discoveries to the public.
When reading about this planned expedition, and having heard Dr. Agnew discuss it previously on shows like Coast to Coast Am, it seems that he is serious and dedicated to this endeavor. My reservation, however, is in the disclaimer at the bottom of the page that says, The North Pole Inner Earth Expedition (NPIEE) is for entertainment purposes only. We reserve the right to direct investments and donations to any legitimate purpose pursuant to the exploration of the mysteries of the universe and of the Earth. Perhaps I need to attempt to contact Dr. Agnew for clarification about this. As I said, I was under the impression that the NPIEE was indeed attempting to fund an excursion.
Anyway, we’ve gotten a bit off base. Back to UFOs and aliens. It is believed by some that these underground dwellings, be they mere caverns and passages or an entire inner Earth underworld, are the home to beings that are alien to us; and that perhaps the possess technology beyond what we’ve been able to achieve. Whether they originated here or they came here long ago is a place where researchers have a variance in opinion. What matters, they say, is that they are here. And in one very famous account, they are up to no good.
In 1943, Richard Shaver had a story to tell. In those days, with stories as fantastic as Shaver’s, it was common to submit stories to the cult or pulp magazines that were so popular at the time. Shaver submitted his tale to Amazing Magazine. Editor/Publisher Ray Palmer began to correspond with Shaver, and ultimately received a 10,000 word document titled, “A Warning to Future Man”.
Shaver claimed that there was a civilization living in underground caverns. These were mostly sinister beings, descended from an extremely advanced prehistoric race that formed civilizations below the Earth’s crust, but left because of the sun’s damaging radiation.
From Shaver’s original manuscript:
With the most positive finality, the caverns do exist, and they are incredibly extensive, so that the possible population (were not so many dead) could be thousands of times that of the surface of the earth, because it consists of very many tiers of caves ? The caves are connected by broad highways, carved through the solid rock for thousands of miles, the whole inner earth being a vastly complicated network of tunnels connecting literally thousands of great caved as large as any surface city, and some so large as to dwarf a New York to insignificance.
Those left behind fell into 2 categories. The Teros, supposedly benevolent, human-like beings, and the Deros, who were sadistic and cruel.
The Deros apparently like to kidnap humans, drag them into their caverns, torture them, and then eat them. Not the most pleasant thing to imagine. Shaver’s tales were printed by Palmer as a work of fiction, and was titled The Shaver Mystery. Palmer insisted that while he presented the story in a fictional setting, he truly believed Shaver’s accounts. They went on to compile quite a library of information, much of which can still be purchased today.
It is important to note that much of the material has been called into question, as was Richard Shaver’s sanity (he apparently did a little time in a psych ward). But while his tales are fantastical and rather beyond belief, it does serve as an example that rumors of subsurface alien beings have persisted through out time, and why should we discount them outright? Is it any less logical to imagine that the things we see around the Earth’s skies could actually be from the Earth itself, than to say they came here from some other planet?
Tackling the Tricky Topic of the USO
You can’t throw a rock at a flying saucer without hearing an account of said saucer emerging not out of the clear blue sky, but from the deep blue sea.
Known as Unidentified Submersed/Submarine Objects (USO), these crafts reportedly have been spotted by countless witnesses, both military and civilian. Often described as emerging from or entering into the ocean without so much as a surface ripple, the origins of the USO are as mysterious as their high flying counterparts.
Some theorize that these craft belong to Extra-Terrestrials who have made their secret bases below the sea. Others have surmised that perhaps these are the transport of an advanced civilization that has always been here…. living below the ocean in societies protected by their technological achievements.
The late William Cooper (conspiracy theorist, radio show host, and author of Behold a Pale Horse) claimed to have witnessed a USO while serving in the Navy. He says that while aboard a Submarine, he saw an aircraft carrier size craft emerge from the water, right before his eyes. Listen as he explains in detail HERE.
Of course, later in his life he came to the conclusion that what he witnessed was not at all alien, and that UFOs in general were a force of the government. But that’s a tale for another time. But Cooper is not alone. There have been hundreds of USO sightings, and the only real questions is…. when they emerge from the water, are they leaving home or going home?
A few years back, the History Channel did a great documentary about USO’s called History – UFO Files : Deep Sea UFOs: Red Alert . Watch it in full below:
We tend to perceive the unknown as being “out of this world”; Other dimensions, other planets, other realities. But, rarely do we consider that perhaps these things that we cannot explain may be closer than we think. Perhaps we share this big planet with lots of creatures and beings that we’ve never really met. The oceans are vast and largely unexplored, there are woodlands and jungles that are relatively untouched by modern civilization, and if there are underground dwellings that we can scarcely conceive of, then it is worth imagining that maybe… just maybe… we aren’t being visited. Maybe they were already here.
