The late American science writer Martin Gardner brilliantly interprets Abdelkader’s mathematics in his skeptical tour of fringe science On the Wild Side (1992). In the strange new physics of Abdelkader’s world, light rays travel not in straight lines but rather in curved arcs. Like a pinwheel grazing the inside of a hollow globe, arcs of sunlight illuminate the near inner surface of the Earth, but curve around and miss the far nighttime surface. For this reason, the Sun appears to set, even though the Earth’s curvature is concave.
Mott goes on to allege that Thompson “lifted entire pages and paragraphs from my earlier book, Caverns, Cauldrons and Concealed Creatures”. These were serious allegations. Could this be the truth behind Thompson’s evaporation?

Ah, the underworld. From time immemorial, people have believed that there is another world lying just beneath the surface of our planet. To a number of cultures—the ancient Greeks for one—it is a dark place filled with the souls of the dead. But most of these early beliefs were metaphorical or mythological in origin.
We are a Low Power FM (LPFM) non-commercial DIY radio station broadcasting on KHUH 104.9 FM and online from a public space in Seattle’s Central District. Our focus is on audio not often heard on the traditional radio dial, including: found sound, field recordings, forgotten music, local musicians, bedroom recordings, lo-fi demos, dreams, storytelling, conversations from within marginalized communities and things that feel real. We acknowledge and celebrate raw talent and imperfections, and encourage emerging artists to take a chance with us. We support local and northwest music and other underground music from around the world.
Phoebe Marie Holmes in her book, My Visit to The Sun relates how she was taken by two angels to the hollow interior of our outer Sun to visit her mansion in the New Jerusalem being built there for us by Jesus and all the prophets and Saints. After the Earth’s resurrection into a Celestial World after the year 3020, the New Jerusalem will be brought from the Sun and will take the place of our Inner Sun to be the home of all of us worthy of becoming Celestial Beings.
Absolute certainty is never the benchmark for a scientific model. To be considered scientific, a model must make a prediction that can be supported by experiment later. To be successful, the experiment must verify this prediction. Only then does a scientist trust the model – but never fully. On this, Popper writes: ‘The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one day that scientific statements do not call for any further test, and that they can be regarded as finally verified, retires from the game.’
Even after his death, though, some continued to subscribe to his theory. A story is told that during World War II Hitler sent an expedition to the Baltic Island of Rugen. There Dr. Heinz Fischer pointed a telescopic camera into the sky in an attempt to photograph the British fleet across the hollow interior of a concave earth. He was apparently unsuccessful and the British fleet remained safe.
Much as we can obtain snowflakes from thermodynamics, Verlinde argues that we can obtain gravitation from thermodynamics. If the Universe were a computer program, there would be no line for gravitation in the code. In this view, gravitation is less like a constitutional article and more like a side effect.
Among most believers, the inside of the Hollow Earth is a lush tropical paradise that very likely houses an advanced race of humans/aliens/giants. In most scenarios, the inhabitants are the descendants of ancient races such as the Lemurians or, as in Cluff’s view, the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, guided there through the North polar opening by God himself. No matter where they come from, they are generally characterized as peace-loving, and advanced far beyond our own. “They have flying saucer technology. They live lives of perfect health for hundreds of years. Their science is much more advanced because they live much longer lives,” says Cluff.
Though Symmes himself never wrote a book about his ideas, several authors’ published works discussing his ideas. McBride wrote Symmes’ Theory of Concentric Spheres in 1826. It appears that Reynolds has an article that appeared as a separate booklet in 1827: Remarks of Symmes’ Theory Which Appeared in the American Quarterly Review. In 1868, a professor W.F. Lyons published The Hollow Globe which put forth a Symmes-like Hollow Earth hypothesis, but failed to mention Symmes himself. Symmes’s son Americus then published The Symmes’ Theory of Concentric Spheres in 1878 to set the record straight.
A tiny gravitational force would arise from the fact that the Earth does not have a perfectly symmetrical spherical shape, as well as forces from other bodies such as the Moon. The centrifugal force from the Earth’s rotation would pull a person (on the inner surface) outwards if the person was traveling at the same velocity as the Earth’s interior and was in contact with the ground on the interior, but even at the equator this is only 1/300 of ordinary Earth gravity.
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!
Through the mid-2000s and into the early 2010s, Cluff was actually a part of a long-gestating expedition known most recently as the North Pole Inner Earth Expedition. Unfortunately after a number of setbacks including backers and members of the team falling victim to calamities ranging from cancer to fatal plane crashes, the expedition was put on hiatus. Had the expedition been successful, the team would have chartered one of the world’s largest ice breaking ships straight to the North Pole, where they would have attempted to contact the denizens of the Hollow Earth through the hole they believed they would find. Cluff believes that the various setbacks to the project are the work of the international banking conspiracy, but is hopeful that they will someday be able to get funding, and a new expedition leader to help continue the project.

Ret. Col. Billie F. Woodard was taken in a flying saucer to our hollow earth through the North Polar Opening at the age of 12 in 1964 and returned six months later. Later while working at Area 51 in Nevada, he was taken to our hollow earth four times on special missions for our military in a hollow earth tunnel train after Area 51 workers broke into their tunnel beneath Area 51. Here is a YouTube video interview of Billie.
Admiral Byrd actually referred to Antarctica as “The Land of Everlasting Mystery”. He once wrote: “I’d like to see that land beyond the (North) Pole. That area beyond the Pole is the Center of the Great Unknown.”
10/12/2009. I was having an interesting discussion with a list member regarding what Google Earth shows at the earth’s poles, when I noticed that if you zoom into the north geographic pole on Google Earth, you will see that the north geographic pole is not on the surface of the planet! The meridian lines running along the surface of the earth are dipping into the earth at that latitude and in order for Google Earth to depict the location of the north pole, it has to put it way up in the atmosphere above the surface of the planet at the location of 90 N Lat 0 W Lon! If the earth has a polar opening near the north geographic pole, you would expect the meridian lines to be dipping into the earth as you approach the pole. So in order to depict the location of the geographic pole, Google Earth has to bend the meridian lines into a cone some distance from the pole and put the geographic north pole at the pinnacle of the cone — far above the surface of the planet depicted with the meridian lines as they approach the pole.
Yes, even pursued with malice and animosity by your fighter planes. So, now, I say to you, my son, there is a great storm gathering in your world, a black fury that will not spend itself for many years. There will be no answer in your arms, there will be no safety in your science.
Genesis for the New Space Age, Secret Development of the Round Wing Plane, the Extra Terrestrials from Inside the Earth, and the Arrival of the Outer Terrestrials, is a book written by John B. Leith in 1980. I received it in manuscript form over a year ago, scanned it and put it in PDF format. But when I placed it up on the Internet, I was contacted by John’s son who informed me the manuscript was copyrighted. Sure enough, a search of the Copyright office returned a copyright, and I removed it at his request from my website. It is an interesting read. The copyright says it is the true story of the development of the Round Wing Plane. I have been informed that OneLight.com has it available now for sale.
This is the type most commonly referred to as the greys. They come from the Zeta Reticulan star system (the Bernard star) neighboring the Orion area. They function in a mode that is apparently military in nature with a rigidly defined social structure that holds science and “conquering worlds” to be the prime movers. They are normally about 4.5 ft tall with large heads and black “wrap around” eyes. They have limited facial features, slit mouth and no nose to speak of. They have evolved beyond the need for reproductive systems or digestive systems and reproduce by cloning. Their genetics are partly based on insectoidal genetics.
Einstein offers an opportunity for his model to be proved wrong. The same cannot be said of Hohlwelttheorie. Whereas Abdelkader yearned to rescue Earth from the vast emptiness of space, Einstein sought to explain data showing that light travels at a constant speed in all frames of reference. And while Abdelkader’s motivation was anthropocentric, Einstein’s might have been shared by a Martian or any other sentient being. Abdelkader, of course, made no testable predictions, yet Einstein made many.
Halley’s strange idea was expanded upon over the next few centuries, tossing out the messy view of multiple spheres for the much funner vision that the entire interior of the Earth is just one, impossibly large cavern. Generally, this new view of the hollow Earth is accompanied with the theory of a small sun that hangs in the very center, creating a lush, livable environment on the flip side of the Earth’s surface. According to a number of hollow Earth websites, this vision was developed among famous mathematicians and scientists such as Leonhard Euler in the 18th century and Sir John Leslie in the 19th century, although the sources for these accreditations seem to be somewhat nebulous.
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.
In his diary, Byrd allegedly tells of entering the hollow interior of the earth, along with others and traveling 17 miles over mountains, lakes, rivers, green vegetation, and animal life. He tells of seeing tremendous animals resembling the mammoths of antiquity moving through the brush. He eventually found cities and a thriving civilization. The external temperature was 74 degrees F.
Labeled as ‘fringe ideas’ by most level-headed people, this study included an in-depth look into such areas as the Alien/UFO phenomenon, government conspiracy theories, New Age thought and other related topics. In undertaking this study, like most people, I was partially motivated by my own curiosity, as well as by a personal desire to expand my understanding of such matters so that I could write about them in a more knowledgeable fashion.
Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican God. Legend has it he flew off in a UFO for 8 days where he visited the inner worlds beneath the sea, returning to create man, leaving messages in the geometry of his design to be found at the end of time. This speaks of Ancient Alien Theory and reality as a consciousness hologram (water, sea (see, eye), collective unconsciousness, grids).
