In many cases, Newton’s physics and Einstein’s physics tell a space probe to do virtually the same thing. While convergent in this sense, they utterly diverge in metaphysics. Newton’s world is a billiard-ball Universe. Moving objects have no speed limit. The rules of the game are clear: forces act instantaneously, taking effect immediately from any distance. Einstein’s world, on the other hand, is a hall of mirrors. Spacetime – the very fabric of reality – is bent. Time and space are relative. Forces are limited by the speed of light.
1/20/2011. The sun rose 2 days early this year in the town of Ilulissat, Greenland, which is located on the western shore of Greenland, just north of the Arctic Circle, 66 degrees north Latitude — that latitude where the sun does not set on the summer solstice, and does not rise on the winter solstice. Traditionally, Ilulissat residents expect to see their first sunrise on January 13. This year it appeared on January 11, two days early. This could have occurred as a mirage. As warm air rises from within the earth through the north polar opening, it rises above the cold air next to the ice in the arctic, creating a layer of air with a different density that could cause this mirage effect, bending the light of the sun below the horizon up to warm layer of air and back down to the town of Ilulissat.

Perhaps some of the most bizarre scientific theories ever considered were those concerning the possibility that the Earth was hollow. One of the earliest of these was proposed in 1692 by Edmund Halley.
In addition to this kind of a hollow-earth there may be a “hollow Mars.” A mars rock discovered in the antarctic suggests that bacteria may have, and might continue to, exist underground on the red planet.
In mid-winter on January 18, 1894 at 79° 18′ N Latitude, 137° 31′ E Longitude, explorer Fridtjof Nansen discovered that a north wind (a wind that blows out of the north) raised the temperature, while a south wind lowered the temperature. At that time, Nansen was south of our estimated location of the polar opening at 84.84 N 129 E. By February 21, 1896, their ship the Fram, which they had embedded in the ice, had drifted around the polar opening when again a wind from the southeast, towards the location of the polar opening, raised the temperature 18 degrees.
This Mercator’s map of the arctic appeared first as a vignette in his 1569 world map atlas. The arctic had yet to be explored at the time Mercator created his map and is, therefore, based upon commonly held beliefs about the region. Mercator’s map inspired explorers like the Englishman Martin Frobisher to seek a northwest passage to China.
My friend Ivars, one of the first persons that I sold my book to years ago, called me the other day and we reminisced times we spent together talking about the hollow earth. He recounted to me the time he met an airline pilot on a flight to his home town in South Carolina. He said he made a point of sitting next to airline pilots that were getting a free flight by wearing their uniform and going as a passenger. This one pilot turned out to have a very interesting story. Ivars, in his usual way, sat down next to him on this flight and started asking him questions. What airline did he fly for? Delta Airline. Had he ever flown in the Arctic? Why yes, many times. Did you notice anything unusual up there? At this point, the pilot wanted to know why he was so interested in the Arctic and what was up there. Ivars said that he was just very interested in something unusual up there. Then the pilot just opened up and said, “Well, if you’re wondering if a polar opening exists up there and if I have seen it, I have. All Arctic airline pilots have seen it. But we’re under strict orders from the military through our company not to go around telling people, and if you ever tell anyone I told you this, I could get into a whole lot of trouble. Of course, we can’t fly our airplanes over the hole because it would be like going into space.” Click here to listen to Ivars relating this experience on video.
A book by a “Dr. Raymond Bernard” which appeared in 1964, The Hollow Earth, exemplifies the idea of UFOs coming from inside the earth, and adds the idea that the Ring Nebula proves the existence of hollow worlds, as well as speculation on the fate of Atlantis and the origin of flying saucers. An article by Martin Gardner revealed that Walter Siegmeister used the pseudonym “Bernard”, but not until the 1989 publishing of Walter Kafton-Minkel’s Subterranean Worlds: 100,000 Years of Dragons, Dwarfs, the Dead, Lost Races & UFOs from Inside the Earth did the full story of Bernard/Siegmeister become well known.
On May 9, 1926, famed American explorer Richard Byrd took off from the Norwegian Arctic island of Spitsbergen along with his pilot, Floyd Bennett, in an attempt to be the first to fly to the North Pole. About 16 hours later, the pair returned to the island in their Fokker tri-motor airplane, the Josephine Ford, saying they had indeed accomplished the feat. Byrd submitted his navigational records to the U.S. Navy and a committee of the National Geographic Society, one of his sponsors, who confirmed the accomplishment, according to the Ohio State University Libraries. Byrd was hailed as a hero, given the Medal of Honor, and went on to fly over the South Pole, as well as achieving many other polar exploration milestones. But from 1926 onward, not everyone thought that Byrd and Bennett actually made it to the North Pole. The controversy largely rested on whether the plane could have covered the distance in just 15 hours and 44 minutes, as the team recorded, when the flight was expected to take about 18 hours, given the ground speed of the aircraft.
MacMillan continued 9 more days in the direction of the mirage, but not seeing it again, and having run short of food, and finding the going very rough ice, they decided the mirage was a will-o’-the-wisp, that Crocker Land did not exist and turned back. On the way back to land, they saw the mirage again. “Throughout the day the mirage of sea ice, resembling in every particular an immense land, continued to mock us. It seemed so near and so easily attainable if we would only turn back.” (pg. 86)
Did the Nazis prove that Earth is hollow? As World War II raged across Europe and the Pacific, the conflict reached every continent on the planet, including Antarctica. Learn more about the little-known Nazi expeditions to Antarctica — and what they hoped to find there — in this episode of Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know.
I just received a very interesting set of mosaic images of the north and south poles from a list member. The north mosaic seems to show the north polar opening in the location we have estimated it to be, on the Russian side of the pole. For comparison, I have copied a section of the image next to a section of the original image and put a red circle around the area in the second copy where there appears to be a circular pattern where we think the polar opening is located on the Russian western quadrant.
Article 1 – The area is to be used for peaceful purposes only; military activity, such as weapons testing, is prohibited but military personnel and equipment may be used for scientific research or any other peaceful purpose;
Hollow Earth Expedition is set in the 1930s. On the surface, everything appears as it does in our real world history books, but if you dig a little deeper you encounter secret societies and villainous organizations, many of whom have a vested interest in the Hollow Earth.
The idea was used by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the creator of Tarzan, in the seven-novel “Pellucidar” series, beginning with At the Earth’s Core (1914). Using a mechanical drill, his heroes discover a prehistoric world, called Pellucidar, 500 miles below the surface, that is lit by an inner sun. The 1915 novel Plutonia by Vladimir Obruchev uses the concept of the hollow Earth to take the reader through various geological epochs.
Hi: I heard about this way back in the 60’s. I found this whole “Hollow earth” to exist only in the Etheric dimension. The Etheric dimension connected to our physical body is the first energy body. It is part physical and part Astral laying between the two. I have found in my inner world travels this Etheric is a whole universe in itself. Now the thought occurred to me to see what the ET Bashar had to say about this, because even though they are who they are, no matter what your opinion of them is, they are still very very smart and have a broader perspective where they are than we do while in our physical body unless you can travel in the inner dimensions and even then, we all have different perceptions and interpretations of what we are viewing outside our physical selves. So Bashar said this:
2/27/2015. The remains of a baby woolly rhinoceros has been discovered in the permafrost of Siberia on the bank of a stream flowing into the Semyulyakh River in the Abyysky district of Siberia. This area is south of the New Siberian Islands where for centuries remains of animals thought to be extinct have been found. The remains of hyena, giant lions, deer, horses, hippopotamus and the woolly mammoth have been found. But as Arctic explorer Olaf Jansen related in his book, The Smoky God, these animals presently live in our hollow earth, and up near the north polar opening in winter sometimes fall into crevasses in the frozen river ice and are later carried out to sea when in summer the sun shines into the polar opening thawing out the frozen river mouths. The carcasses are pushed out into the Arctic Ocean encased in the icebergs and eventually end up on the coasts of Siberia.
John, when people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.
In 1869, Cyrus Reed Teed, an herbalist and self-proclaimed alchemist, had a vision of a woman who told him that we are living on the inside of the hollow Earth. For nearly forty years, Teed promoted his idea in pamphlets and speeches. He even founded a cult called the Koreshans (Koresh is the Hebrew equivalent of Cyrus).
That land has been seen all around the Arctic. It is the inner continent that starts half-way through the polar opening. It has been seen by many Arctic explorers. Admiral Peary and MacMillan saw it from Axel Heiberg Island in Northern Canada. Captain Keenan sighted it from Harrison Bay on the north shore of Alaska. The Russians have seen it from the New Siberian Islands and called it Sannikov Land. Dr. Frederick A. Cook took a photo of it on his way to the pole in 1908. He called it Bradley land. That land does indeed exist although it is not on any map!
According to this theory, the interior of the earth would be empty and it would be habitable; the steps for this interior space you would find at the poles, and would lead to a new world that would be on the inner surface of the crust. Proponents of this view, which has its origins in some theories of the seventeenth and eighteenth century , they refuse to accept established scientific models such as plate tectonics or gravitation .
But the good news is that our prison sentence is about up. The flying saucer people came to tell Larry that they have a project they call, “Project Milana.” They told Larry that our prison sentence on this planet is about up (my estimate is about the year 2021 when I estimate the earth will be hit by a devastating solar flare). And that they are coming to take us all back home. That is, those of us that deserve to be taken back home, which I doubt would include murderers, liars, thieves, adulterers, and war mongers, in short, all who insist on breaking the Creator’s laws.
Marshall Gardner wrote A Journey to the Earth’s Interior in 1913 and an expanded edition in 1920. He placed an interior sun in the hollow Earth. He even built a working model of the hollow Earth and patented it. Gardner made no mention of Reed, but did take Symmes to task for his ideas. In the same time Vladimir Obruchev wrote a fiction novel Plutonia, where the hollow Earth’s interior possessed one inner (central) sun and was inhabited by prehistoric species. The interior was connected with the surface by a hole in the Arctic.
In 1868, a professor W.F. Lyons published The Hollow Globe which put forth a Symmes-like Hollow Earth hypothesis, but didn’t mention Symmes. Symmes’s son Americus then published The Symmes’ Theory of Concentric Spheres to set the record straight.
The picture of the structure of the Earth that has been arrived at through the study of seismic waves is quite different from the Hollow Earth hypothesis. The time it takes for seismic waves to travel through and around the Earth directly contradicts a hollow sphere. The evidence indicates that the Earth is filled with solid rock (mantle and crust), liquid nickel-iron alloy (outer core), and solid nickel-iron (inner core).
In 1818, John Cleves Symmes, Jr. suggested that the Earth consisted of a hollow shell about 1300 km (800 miles) thick, with openings about 2300 km (1400 miles) across at both poles with 4 inner shells each open at the poles. Symmes became the most famous of the early Hollow Earth proponents. He proposed making an expedition to the North Pole hole, thanks to efforts of one of his followers, James McBride, but the new President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, halted the attempt.
