6.14 – MYSTERIOUS DEVICES (6.27.14)

ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY [15d]

Did aliens really inspire our ancestors to build ancient temples and pyramids? And if they came here, did they leave behind any advanced knowledge of physics, astronomy or mathematics? If so, is there any evidence that remains to this day? One example might be this one. Often described as the world’s first mechanical computer, it dates back over 2,000 years.

“The Antikythera device was found in 1900 by sponge divers diving off a small island in the Aegean called Antikythera. There was a shipwreck there, and in it was a coral-encrusted box, and it was made of metal alloys. And it then went to the Athens Museum where, a good 50 years later, they were able to X-ray this box and they were able to discern cogged wheels that were interconnected and give us a very good depiction of what this thing was. And it is a computer. It’s a really sophisticated machine.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“It’s a very interesting piece of technology, because it served two purposes. One was that it was an astronomical device where you could, by using it, chart your position to the stars and navigate your way through the seas. It was also an astrological device, so that someone could tell you, “Ah, if you were born on this date, and your planet sign is this, then certain things were going to happen to you when the planets are in this alignment.” So, it was a very interesting piece of technology that, literally, had more complicated gears and inner workings than a modern-day Swiss watch. And it’s found to be dated, I think, like 200 BC. So, it’s really an anomaly as to who could’ve created that and what it was being used for.”

“When archaeologists first started to examine this thing in the 1950s, they said that they never could conceive of the ancient Greeks having such complicated machinery. And, in fact, they said, this was tantamount to finding a jet airplane in the tomb of King Tut.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Even older than the Antikythera mechanism are these carvings on a wall at the Dendera Temple complex in Egypt. To some, the strange designs look eerily similar to objects very much in use today.

“In Egypt, there is this underground crypt at Dendera that was always secret, and only the high priests had access to that crypt. It’s very hot in there, very narrow, low ceiling. And on the walls, you have these reliefs of what looks like ancient lightbulbs. Because we have to question one thing – How did the ancient Egyptians light the inside of their tombs?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

According to most mainstream archeologists, torches were used by the ancient Egyptians to light the pitch-black chambers of tombs and temples. Yet, nowhere on the ceilings is there even the slightest evidence of soot or smoke residue.

“There isn’t enough oxygen inside those tombs with which to support or feed a flame of a torch. The only remaining solution is, by some sort of an artificial light source. And that is, for example, a lightbulb. So, at the underground crypt at Dendera, we find reliefs of such lightbulbs.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

But how could the ancient Egyptians have used anything resembling a modern-day lightbulb without access to electricity? After all, electricity wouldn’t be discovered for thousands of years. That is, of course, with the exception of what scientists call the Baghdad Battery.

“The Baghdad Battery was discovered in ancient Iraq. Scholars today say there’s no way that ancient man was using electricity or lightbulbs. So, they look at this Baghdad Battery and there’s about a dozen of them that have been found in Iraq and the only mainstream theory is that they were using it for electroplating jewelry.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

Two major proponents of Ancient Alien Theory, Jason Martell and Giorgio Tsoukalos, demonstrate just how the Baghdad Battery could generate electricity, using a modern mock-up of the device.

“Well, basically, this is made out of a clay pot, clay just found naturally in that region in Southern Iraq. And then they would use a small copper lining and something along the lines of an asphalt stopper wrapped around an iron rod. And these all applied together and the combination of some weak acidic acid vinegar, grape juice, orange juice in this case, wine would be able to generate a charge by combining these elements with the rod, the iron rod and the copper. And the combination of that creates an abundance of electricity. So, what we’re gonna do is basically just fill the clay pot with some orange juice here. I’ll try not to spill it too much. And then we’ll go ahead and put the copper rod back in there. Copper and iron rod. We’ll give it a moment to kind of fill that copper area there. And then by turning on the volt meter and applying this to each side, we should be able to generate a charge. And there it goes, into the positive. And if we give it some time to get the electrolytes really buzzing in there, you’ll see that this volt will actually continue to rise.”

“It is a battery. Everybody agrees with that. But nobody knows why they made it and how they made it. What mind would think of that? You know, electrical current back several thousand years ago? It’s very strange, but it’s clearly a battery.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“The whole idea that ancient civilizations actually had knowledge of electricity and used electricity is an accepted archaeological fact today. Just like in our own civilization, where about 200 years ago, Benjamin Franklin and other scientists began experimenting with simple electrical devices, we now have evidence that over 3,000 years ago, people were also experimenting with electrical devices. Where might it have led them? What other electrical devices would they have been able to create? I believe they probably created all kinds of electrical devices.”

 – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Are the Antikythera Device and the Baghdad Battery evidence that our ancestors really were in possession of advanced technology? And if so, might this technology have had extraterrestrial origins? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe further clues may be found in the story of a top secret Nazi project simply known as The Bell.

In a remote valley just outside Ludwikowice, Poland stands a strange circular structure known as the Henge, or Fly Trap.

“We are in the middle of a valley, which was taken over by the SS and transformed into a secret research, development and industrial facility. It was closely guarded. Inside of this valley we have three security rings, closing specific areas from each other. Inside of the innermost circle this structure stands, and it’s quite mysterious.”

Igor Witkowski (Author, The Truth About the Wunderwaffe)

Mainstream scholars believe the structure served as the concrete support base to a cooling tower used by a coalmine. But according to Witkowski and others, the German high command would not have devoted so many military resources here if the valley contained only an energy plant. They say the Henge was used to test a new highly advanced machine known as “Die Glocke,” or “The Bell.”

“The Bell, Die Glocke, was probably one of the top secret projects of the Third Reich. It was so secret that it’s even unclear on how much Hitler was told.”

– Jim Marrs
(Author, The Rise of the Fourth Reich),
(The Alien Agenda)

“There’s a great deal of evidence that suggests that the scientists, including Hermann Oberth and Wernher von Braun and others, were working on a bell shaped craft that was electromagnetic in its propulsion system.”

– Dr. Steven M. Greer, MD
(Dir., The Disclosure Project / Dir., SiriusDisclosure)

Surviving sketches depict The Bell as having a ceramic covering and dimensions measuring ten feet high and five feet in diameter. Its design appears contrary to modern aerodynamic principles.

“If you’re starting to think about a bell shape for flight, the challenge you’re facing, I think, is making it aerodynamic for when you move around side to side and forward and backward. ‘Cause you’re presenting a very large cross-sectional area to the air. And you’re gonna generate a lot of drag. So, you might be very good if you want just, like, a hovercraft that went up and down. But once you start moving, I think you’re gonna run into trouble.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

But if The Bell was not a new type of aircraft, then what was it? According to some Ancient Astronaut Theorists, The Bell may have been a time machine.

“There is a kind of vortices named solitons, which are vortices isolated electromagnetically from the outside world. Recent research and experiments show that the link between gravity and electromagnetic physics is much stronger than the scientists thought for some time.”

Igor Witkowski (Author, The Truth About the Wunderwaffe)

“The laws of the Universe being universal, if you take the right electromagnetic field and very high voltage pulse it or phase it in a certain way you can get some very strange phenomenon. You can make things disappear and reappear. Therefore, it follows to reason that this would be studied and that the Nazi Bell was probably an attempt by that regime to develop some type of flying machine that would use these sort of advanced electromagnetic concepts.”

– Dr. Steven M. Greer, MD
(Dir., The Disclosure Project / Dir., SiriusDisclosure)

But was time travel even a possibility? According to German-born physicist Albert Einstein, humans were theoretically capable of it.

“His theory of special relativity actually showed, for the first time, that time can slow down when you go very fast. And so that has an impact on going into the future. It allows you to travel really fast somewhere, and your time goes slower than somebody else and you end up in the future, relative to what you thought you were doing. The harder one to think about is general relativity, where Einstein talks about gravity and how to describe gravity. And there you can start thinking about space-time and bending it, and actually by warping space and time in the right way, you end up going backwards in time.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

While no records exist indicating The Bell was ever used during the war, as the Allied military forces pushed into Germany, the entire project and its commander SS General Hans Kammler suddenly disappeared.

“SS General Hans Kammler, who was going to defect in exchange for immunity. But then, by the end of the war, he disappeared. So, where did Hans Kammler go, and what did he take? I think he took The Bell. Did he create a wormhole? Did he create a stargate? And this is what the Nazis were working on.”

– Jim Marrs
(Author, The Rise of the Fourth Reich),
(The Alien Agenda)

Did Kammler and the other Nazis really use The Bell to escape justice by disappearing across time? Or possibly to another planet? In the spring of 1945, Germany’s war effort collapsed. And as the Allied armies advanced towards Berlin, German scientists and engineers abandoned their laboratories. Hitler’s search for a wonder weapon failed. Instead, it was the Americans who scored the decisive technological edge with their development of the atomic bomb. But according Ancient Astronaut Theorists, a similar and perhaps even more devastating weapon had already existed, unleashed in an area that is now part of India more than 3,000 years ago.
