2.3 – UNDERWATER WORLDS (11.11.10)

THE DRAGON’S TRIANGLE [4c]

Yonaguni, Japan. This small island is at the westernmost tip of the Japanese archipelago. Scholars believe the first inhabitants migrated here from Southeast Asia during prehistoric times. In 1987, in nearby waters, dive tour operator, Kihachiro Aratake, made a shocking discovery. A massive complex of stone formations lay hidden a mere 60-feet beneath the ocean surface. Experts call it one of the greatest discoveries in the history of underwater archaeology.

“What’s intriguing about the complex at Yonaguni is that there are a whole range of monuments, pretty much side by side, and this, to my eye, looks unmistakably to be the work of human beings, not the random action of the ocean on differential layers of stone.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“There are several reasons why I think this is not a natural formation. A number of tools and numerous engraved stones were found at the site. Because of these things, there is no doubt to me that this was made artificially.”

Masaaki Kimura (Prof. Emeritus, Ryukyus Univ.)

Submerged beneath 60 to 100 feet of water, the largest of the formations resemble a massive, five-layered stepped pyramid, the size of two football fields.

“You see unambiguous carvings that clearly are geometric in nature, tons of right angles. We see channels that you can walk through with stairwells at the end that are perfectly rectangular in shape.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“There are places where you find megaliths piled on top of one another to create a tunnel through which you can swim. There is a set of megaliths positioned side by side against the side of the cliff. There’s a gigantic human face carved underwater.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“There is a stone in which is carved a face almost 23 feet tall. Our first impression was that it looked a lot like the Moai on Easter Island. Then we began to realize that it strongly resembled the Sphinx which guarded the pyramids. We wondered if that might be the function the face is also serving here?”

Masaaki Kimura (Prof. Emeritus, Ryukyus Univ.)

“It’s the whole combination of all these structures together which convince me that we’re looking at a ceremonial complex. The mystery surrounding the Yonaguni underwater structure is, when did it go underwater? The geological evidence is that it was submerged during the meltdown of the last Ice Age.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“All around the world, whether it is France, India, or Japan, there are man-made structures that lie underwater. Two ways how our ancestors could have done this. Either they had scuba gear – I don’t think so – or this stuff was built when the ocean levels were lower, and that was over 14,000 years ago. And 14,000 years ago, according to mainstream archaeology, we were just dwelling in caves, hunter-gatherers.”

Could the Yonaguni structures have been built by such primitive people? And what evidence exists of the people who inhabited this island?

“Human fossils were found, so I’m sure there were people living on the island, but there’s some question about whether or not they had the technology to create structures or anything like this.”

Masaaki Kimura (Prof. Emeritus, Ryukyus Univ.)

“It’s not so much the question of could the stone have been chipped away and removed. It’s a question of the vision, of the scale of the complex, of thinking in those kind of terms. And we know of no other Stone Age culture that thought in those kind of terms, of creating a gigantic, seemingly ceremonial complex.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

If, according to scholars, the ancient Japanese people could not have built this monument, who did? And how did it get here?

“The speculation is that extraterrestrials created the Yonaguni monument. The engineering is just beyond the capacity of Stone Age civilizations.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists also believe the key to the Yonaguni mystery is found in its global positioning.  Strangely, the complex lies within an area of the Pacific long suspected of extraterrestrial activity. It’s called the Dragon’s Triangle.

“Just south of Japan, you have a mysterious area called the Dragon’s Triangle, which is very similar to the Bermuda Triangle, because you have planes that have disappeared from the air, ships that have disappeared from the ocean. In fact, Japan has declared this a disaster area. Don’t fly through it. Stay the heck away, because if you go in there, terrible things can happen to you.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“In ancient Japan, and even into the relatively modern era, there are stories about the Dragon Sea, in which objects rise out of the water and sail through the air. In ancient Japan, these were winged monsters breathing fire. In more modern times, these took on the appearance of actual machines. When you compare those descriptions of these devices with the description that Columbus gave of a craft nearing the Bermuda Triangle actually rising out of the water, a light that followed the ship, you realize there’s a similarity in both of these locations to things, objects, that are in the water and rise out of the water and fly through the air.”

– Bill Birnes, J.D., Ph.D.
(Author / Publisher, UFO Magazine)

But why are the two submerged structures found within the perimeter of these strange regions of the planet where so much unusual activity occurs? Is it coincidence that the Earth’s 25th parallel north cuts through both the Bermuda Triangle and the Dragon’s Triangle?

“They lie on a plane along the same line, and both of them have the same magnetic phenomena, in which compass bearings are lost and instruments go down. People wonder if there’s a real, strange UFO connection.”

– Bill Birnes, J.D., Ph.D.
(Author / Publisher, UFO Magazine)

“If UFOs and flying saucers do exist, then we should suspect that they could originally come from an ancient super civilization. It makes you wonder if flying saucers, UFOs, whatever you want to call them, actually use the area of the Triangle as their major base, and perhaps are even coming back to the remnants of a civilization that they were familiar with.”

Gian J. Quasar (Author, They Flew Into Oblivion)

 

What if the sunken monuments at Yonaguni and near Cuba had alien origins? Might they have been used as alien bases? And if we believe extraterrestrials functioned on land, could they have also functioned underwater? Could there be more evidence lying in the vast Pacific?
