6.1 – ALIENS & FORBIDDEN ISLANDS (11.29.13)

HY-BRASIL [2f]

The North Atlantic Ocean. 200 miles west of Ireland…lie open waters expanding as far as the eye can see. But according to 14th-century Mediterranean mapmakers, this exact spot marks the location of an island known as Hy-Brasil. For more than 600 years, sailors across the world have searched for this so-called phantom island belied to contain an Eden-like paradise.

“Lore has it that the island couldn’t be seen except once every seven years, when it could be seen but not reached.”

“Hy-Brasil allegedly appeared and disappeared behind the mists. It could never definitively be found. Although, it’s putative location is marked on some of these early maps.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

Hy-Brasil was first mapped by the Italian-Majorcan cartographer Angelino de Dalorto in 1325, who described the island as being “a strikingly round form.” Over a century later in 1497, Italian explorer John Cabot also reported reaching Hy-Brasil. And in 1674, Captain John Nisbet of Ireland reportedly brought back silver and gold from the island that he claimed to have received from an old, mysterious man. Strangely, he and his men inhabited by what they called “giant black rabbits.” Other explorers of the time returned from the island with similarly bizarre stories and accounts of beautiful glowing people.

“Hy-Brasil is, imagined in Irish lore, to be the place that the Irish gods came from. On the island of Hy-Brasil, the gods had a luxurious life. They were able to develop an advanced civilization.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

In 1684, one of the first Irish historians, Roderick O’Flaherty, wrote about Hy-Brasil in his book, A Chorographical Description of West, or H-Iar Connaught. In it, he refers to the island as “enchanted” and writes that it is a “land kept hidden by the special ordinates of God.

“Like a lot of other mythologies, such as Atlantis, Hy-Brasil was thought to be the source of civilization. Especially in Ireland and England and other areas such as that. It’s thought that Hy-Brasil still exists under the sea, and that periodically, when the conditions are right, it’ll surface.”

– Tim Swartz (Editor, Conspiracy Journal),
(Editor, Richard Shaver: Reality of Inner Earth),
(Author, Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction),
(The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla)

According to legend, the mysterious land was last seen in 1872 by author T.J. Westropp and his crew, who saw the island appear and then vanish.

“If Hy-Brasil is an actual land, very possibly it could be that at one time on planet Earth there was a superior technology; a civilization that had progress that far surpassed even our own today. And these people originated from the stars. They are the people that the human race descended from. And locations such as Hy-Brasil is this homeland of these creatures.”

– Tim Swartz (Editor, Conspiracy Journal),
(Editor, Richard Shaver: Reality of Inner Earth),
(Author, Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction),
(The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla)

Is it possible that the mythical island of Hy-Brasil not only exists, but is actually a high-tech alien base? And if so, might there be others located all over the world?

“You find so many accounts of beings coming and going from the stars at these locations. You find mysterious disappearances. You find other supernatural events taking place at these islands. And it makes you wonder if they’re in fact being used by advanced extraterrestrial races as portals, as gateways, even as stopover places, maybe even refueling stations in a way, as places that are known throughout the cosmos.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Might aliens have been visiting these remote, relatively uninhabited locations for thousands of years using them as secret hideouts landing spots, or energetic refueling stations? Could there be extraterrestrial bases on hidden islands even now? And when the truth behind these forbidden islands is revealed, will we finally come face-to-face with our celestial ancestors?
