6.4 – ALIENS & STARGATES (1.24.14)

ANCIENT PORTALS [5b]

Pamukkale, Turkey. Here, 200 miles south of Istanbul, lie the ruins of Hierapolis, an ancient city that served as a sacred site to the Phrygians in the 3rd-century BC. In March 2013, Italian archaeologists announced that they had unearthed something the ancient Greeks described as a gateway to Hell.

“The ancients in Greece and Roman civilizations had a fascination with the underworld, the realm of Hades and Pluto. There were many stories of travelers who were able to transit into these unseen realms. To go to the land of the dead and survive was a great miracle showing great heroism.”

According to the accounts of Greek geographer Strabo, this cave, now partially bricked up, was known as a Ploutonion, or Pluto’s Gate, for the god of the underworld. It was considered so sacred that only cult priests were allowed near it. These priests worshipped a powerful goddess known as Cybele.

“Cybele started out as a goddess that was important in Asia Minor and then spread west into Greece and Rome. She is known as the guardian of the gateways. You would have to get Cybele’s permission to move through time and space.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

“Iconographically, she is often portrayed as standing next to the gate to the other world. I think the realm of the gods has always fascinated humans because it is imagined as being very different from our own realm, and so humans have always sought a way to enter the realm of the gods, to have those ecstatic experiences that happen when you are in communication with a deity.”

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

Legends from around the world describe sacred entryways similar to Pluto’s Gate that led to the land of the gods. In many cases, these gates not only provided instant passage outside the confines of Earth, but even beyond space and time. And according to some myths, they were traversed by otherworldly beings.

“Throughout the ancient world, we’re presented with stories of advanced beings who came from the stars, star beings. In many of these instances, they are described as passing through portals or star doors. The term we use today is stargate.”

– 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)

“A stargate is a place that allows transportation to another planet or somewhere out in the stars. There have been a number of locations across the planet where it’s been felt that the ancients built stargates.”

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

Are such passages or stargates just the product of our ancestors’ imaginations? Or might this kind of interstellar travel have actually existed in the ancient world? If so, who or what created such advanced technology thousands of years ago? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe more clues can be found in the descriptions of the elaborate rituals that took place at the Turkish Ploutonion.

“It was a great spectacle when the priests of Cybele would do their ceremonial sacrifice. They’d lead a bull into the cave, and the bull would die of the gases in this cave, and the people were gathered, watching this whole thing. Then the priests would bring out this sacrificed animal, and everyone would notice the priests were alive, showing they had some great power or direct connection to the divine source to be able to survive the rituals themselves. This would prove then that this was the gate to Hell, and all the people would be afraid and have great respect for it.”

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

“The fact that these rituals existed the fact that Cybele was known as the guardian of the gateway, tells us that the ancients were doing something really important with this idea of time travel, of portals.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

Excavations have revealed that in fact there are vapors rising from the ground at the site that contain poisonous levels of carbon dioxide and other gases capable of killing anyone or anything that breathes them in.

“The ancient story said that animals that came anywhere near this would drop down dead. The same still occurs today. Any birds going near it fall down dead.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

If the toxins within the cave were potent enough to kill a bull, how did the priests survive this ritual? Is it possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that the priests had received secret knowledge and perhaps even access to a stargate from an otherworldly being known as Cybele?

“In Pamukkale, Turkey, this does appear to be a preserved record of a possible stargate technology that is being used. As these special priests were able to go into this area, they may have been traveling through some sort of energetic portal that gave them the ability to reach some other location that was completely different from where people normally were going if they walked into this area.”

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

“You have to wonder if there was something secret in this cave that they were hiding, perhaps some kind of inter-dimensional stargate technology, and that they would put on this show to basically frighten them, make sure that they realized this cave was a forbidden place to go into and in fact was some kind of repository for alien technology and possibly stargates.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)
(The Time Travelers Handbook)

Could the Ploutonion really be an extraterrestrial stargate one that was protected by priests in order to dissuade others from approaching it? And if so, why? Perhaps the answer can be found at another ancient site more than 7,000 miles away.

Machu Picchu, Peru. Approximately 50 miles northwest of Cuzco, nestled high up in the Andes Mountains, these ancient Inca ruins believed to have been a palace complex date back to the 15th-century. Located in the southwestern corner of what archaeologists contend was the site’s main plaza is the Temple of Three Windows, a stone hall 35 feet long and 14 feet wide, containing three trapezoidal windows along one wall.

“Textbooks say that the windows of the Temple of the Three Windows are aligned perfectly to let June solstice sunrise come right in at a perfect angle, that the entire building is oriented to receive the first light as it comes over the mountains through those three windows at summer solstice.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist/Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr)

Some scholars believe the three windows symbolize the Incan creation myth. According to legend, the children of the sun god Viracocha stepped into the world through three mysterious openings in a mountain, and gave rise to the Incan civilization.

“In the creation story of the Incan people, the Children of the Sun, the Ayar Brothers, came down through three portals, three windows, to begin the Incan people. The temple at Machu Picchu, with three windows, is said to represent this miraculous event.”

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

“These brothers were the offspring of the god Viracocha that seemed to have brought the first wisdom and knowledge and rudiments of civilization to the peoples of South America. And by simply looking through these three windows, the mind could reach out and connect once more with these gods and communicate with them.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the Incan creation story may be more than simply mythology. They believe it could be a description of stargate travel taking place thousands of years ago.

“When you read this story, you’re instantly thinking that this is some kind of a stargate they’re describing, and that these children of the sun, these advanced solar beings possessed some kind of stargate technology that enabled them to open these gateways. And maybe the Inca story is a recollection of their utilization of this stargate technology.”

– 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)

“The Ayar Brothers could be very real beings who came in, visited the Incans, gave them the basis of their science, their technology, their spoken language, all of the aspects of civilization, and used a stargate portal technology on the side of a mountain to get there.”

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

Was the great Inca Empire actually created by extraterrestrials that traveled to Earth through a so-called stargate? And might that explain why ancient sites like the Ploutonion were so highly guarded? Perhaps the answer has already been discovered, not in the ancient world, but by modern science.
