7.10 – HIDDEN PYRAMIDS (4.17.15)


Yonaguni Island, Japan. September, 1997. Multiple teams of researchers, geologists and professional divers launch an underwater expedition near the southernmost of the remote Ryukyu Islands. They are there to investigate a mysterious stone configuration known as the Yonaguni Pyramid. Less than a hundred feet below the surface, the divers come across rock formations including pillars wedges platforms and giant steps that appear to be carved out of the bedrock.

“The Yonaguni Monument has been altered by carving, and it has been very carefully carved into megaliths, platforms, stairways. The only problem is that it’s built for giants. The stairs are immense. So, who built this monument? And what cataclysmic event sent it to the bottom of the sea?”

– Wm. Michael Mott (Author, Caverns, Cauldrons, & Concealed Creatures, 3rd Ed.)

“There are all these different cuts that seem to be of artificial origin and not of a natural origin, because it’s too precise. Was Yonaguni artificially altered at a time when the water levels of the oceans were lower? We know that this happened at some point during the last Ice Age, which was 14,000 years ago.”

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

“Now, we have to remember that at the end of the last Ice Age, sea levels were as much as 300-plus feet lower than they are today, so at that time, this structure would have been above sea level. It would have been, at that time, dry land.”

Could the massive underwater structure known as Yonaguni really be the remnants of an advanced civilization that existed here on Earth more than 10,000 years ago? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes and claim that further evidence can be found in Polynesian stories of a long lost continent called Mu.

“The Yonaguni Monument may represent the remains of a transpacific civilization that the Polynesians call Mu. There is evidence throughout Polynesia for an ancient megalithic civilization. There are similar ruins off the coast of Pohnpei. The ruins are partially submerged.”

– Wm. Michael Mott (Author, Caverns, Cauldrons, & Concealed Creatures, 3rd Ed.)

“This lost continent of Mu was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and it encompassed Hawaii and Tahiti. Tonga and Samoa and even Easter Island were all part of this lost continent of Mu, and the central pyramid complex in Tonga is called Mu’a.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

While most conventional scholars dismiss the story of Mu as being mythology, Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest an enormous new discovery in Southeast Asia could provide irrefutable evidence that this lost civilization did, in fact, exist.

West Java, Indonesia. Located in Karyamukti village is a mysterious site called Gunung Padang, or “Mountain of Enlightenment.” For thousands of years, the local population revered Gunung Padang as a sacred site, and many came here to meditate among the giant stone blocks. But in 1914 Dutch explorers discovered that the basalt columns scattered across the hilltop are not natural features at all. They are, in fact, fragments of an ancient megalithic site. A century later, in 2013, the Indonesian government sponsored an excavation to see if anything was hidden beneath the layers of dirt and rubble. What they found was evidence that suggests Gunung Padang is the world’s oldest step pyramid.

“Gunung Padang is probably the most remarkable megalithic structure in the whole of Southeast Asia. And what it consists of is a hillside on the top of which are a series of terraces, on which are structures made from basaltic pillars and other types of structure.”

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

“But what is really important is the age of it. It has been analyzed by an Indonesian geologist, and he seemed to have very good data from bore holes, from radiocarbon analysis, from seismic sections, as I’ve done around the great Sphinx, that this site goes back an incredible 20,000 or so years, maybe slightly more than that.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.

(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

According to geologists, 20,000 years ago, Java, where Gunung Padang is located was not an isolated island, but the southernmost part of a subcontinent known as Sundaland. This has led some researchers to speculate that Gunung Padang, with its high elevation, could have been at the pinnacle of a civilization that disappeared sometime around 10,000 BC, when melting ice caps flooded the region and turned it into the series of islands it is today.

“The compelling suggestion is that there was some sort of civilization here before this flood took place, that they built this with advanced technology and therefore, they were extraterrestrial visitors to the earth, and that’s why archaeologists are not finding the evidence that we would normally expect to see showing a geometric progression of technology leading up to the ability to build a gigantic pyramid well over 12,000 years ago.”

(The Synchronicity Key)

Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe Sundaland is only one piece of an enormous underwater puzzle that, when put together, will reveal there was an advanced culture here on Earth tens of thousands of years ago. But why did they build pyramids? Is it possible pyramids played a powerful, central role in the colonization of the planet? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the answers may lie not only underwater but buried beneath the sand in Egypt.
