8/20/2011. Terry Smith, the Alaskan bush pilot I was hoping could take people to the north pole, died in a plane crash August 9, 2010, I just learned. Terry had offered to take us to the coordinates we provided where we estimate the North Polar Opening is located. Our hearts go out to his wife Terri and their family. He will be missed.
Later theorists came up with variations to Halley’s model. In the seventeenth century, Leonhard Euler proposed a single-shell hollow Earth with a small sun (1.000 km across) at the centre, providing light and warmth for an inner-Earth civilisation. Others proposed two inner suns, and even named them: Pluto and Proserpine.

A list member has located the polar orbiting satellite paths over Antarctica from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) showing that there is a large area over the pole that the polar orbiting satellites do not cross over. We maintain that the polar orbiting satellites do not cross over this no-fly zone at the poles because the polar openings into the earth are located there. There is no mass in the polar openings and a satellite put over the openings would loose orbit, so no satellites are put in orbit over the polar openings. This narrows the location the polar openings are located — to within the no-fly zones over the poles. A video was also located that shows the north polar opening, probably the first that has become available that is not just a hole in the satellite imagery. A still photo from that video shows the polar opening located on the Russian side of the pole at 84.84 N Lat 129 E Lon.
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).
Sound familiar? Verlinde thinks so. Like Ptolemy’s epicycles and Le Verrier’s Vulcan, dark matter might be a desperate attempt to reconcile a failing theory with observation. Perhaps it’s time to start a new page? Verlinde did just that in late 2016. In the paper ‘Emergent Gravity and the Dark Universe’, he gives new credence to an idea that originated in 1983 with the Israeli physicist Mordehai Milgrom: when gravity grows weak enough, the idea goes, its influence declines less with distance. With this modification alone, the Universe is no longer filled with invisible matter. Dark matter goes poof! Indeed, with parsimony on his side, Verlinde might ultimately wield Occam’s razor as his sword.
In February, 1947, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, leading a United States Navy Task Force expedition, flew for seven hours beyond the North Pole and reached a place never before recorded in history. The expedition, known as Operation HighJump, proceeded to penetrate the hollow region of the Earth for 1700 miles. There they found a Land that was green and lush with growing plants, flowers and thick forests.
It’s not clear what supports the surface of the Earth according to the Hollow Earth Theory, since the surface of the Earth we can see would most likely collapse under the force of gravity without a substrate (the mantle and inner core are solid, the outer core is liquid, and both states are highly resistant to compression). Nor is it clear what keeps the denizens from floating away from the inner surface.
George Papashvily in his Anything Can Happen (1940) claimed the discovery in the Caucasus mountains of a cavern containing human skeletons “with heads as big as bushel baskets” and an ancient tunnel leading to the centre of the Earth. One man entered the tunnel and never returned.
In the early eighteenth century, American John Cleves Symmes Jr supplemented the theory with the suggestion of ‘blowholes’: openings about 2.300 km across at both poles. Symes apparently was utterly convinced by his own theories: he campaigned for an expedition to the North Pole. The intervention of president Andrew Jackson was needed – to stop it, that is.
Program Description: A show the focuses on latinxs artist around the world through sounds to connect with our community. The show will connect the similarities and inspirations from other eras in Latin America to the more contemporary to give the listener an idea of how Latinx Artist have influenced not only Latin America but the music world in general.
Do the hollow earth people have a message for us? There are many things in the late Larry Foreman’s book, Passport to Eternity, that makes me believe that the flying saucer people he met out in the desert outside Los Angeles in 1960 are actually from our hollow earth.
Karl Unger reached our hollow earth in 1943 as a refugee from World War II in the German Submarine U-209 captained by Heinrich Brodda, and wrote a letter back to his friend in Houston, Missouri, Tawani W. Shoush, from the hollow interior of our earth.
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.
Having caught the ball, Verlinde keeps running with it. After deriving Newton’s model of gravitation, he continues in the same 2011 paper to derive important pieces of Einstein’s model. But what does this change? Isn’t gravity still gravity? Perhaps not: Verlinde sees room for improvement.
Shaver contended that the Elder Superior Pre-historic Race came to this planet from another solar system in our prehistoric past. After a time of living on the surface, they realized our sun was causing them to age prematurely, so they escaped underground, building huge subterranean complexes in which to live. Eventually, they decided to seek a new home on a new planet, evacuating the Earth and leaving behind their underground cities – a honeycomb of caves in the Earth – populated by artificial beings: the evil Dero, detrimental robots and the good Tero, integrated robots. Shaver claimed to have met the Tero.
As the Nazi party rose to power in Germany, anti-Semitism drove the Jewish-German physicist Albert Einstein to take up residence in the US. Like Teed, Einstein had developed a deeply counterintuitive understanding of the Universe. To explain several curious observations about light, Einstein inferred that it must always have the same speed for all observers. Moreover, time and space change as one approaches light speed. Behold, very fast objects contract in length and experience a different passage of time! So twins might diverge in age if one starts travelling much faster than the other.
Dr. Brooks Agnew, Founder of Advanced Planetary Explorations, LLC is the Scientific Project Director of the North Pole Inner Earth Expedition (NPIEE). By far the most innovative and courageous exploration effort in modern times. “We are unable to go to the Moon. We are decades away from manned exploration to Mars. This Expedition to the North Pole region is possible and within reach. There has never been a more exciting or appropriate time to visit this region of the Earth. The science is ready. The documentary film viewing public is ready. The mission is extraordinary enough to dominate documentary content for a strong feature release and bold enough to make history.” It is interesting to note that Brooks is the descendant of the Scottish explorer James Ross, who is credited with the discovery of the Magnetic North Pole in 1831.
Though Occam’s razor is not an exact algorithm, Hohlwelttheorie’s arbitrary focus on Earth can indeed be quantified. Why Earth, in particular, as the Universe-container? Why not any of the other countless planets in the Universe? Why a planet, for that matter – could not a moon or a star be subject to the same sphere-inversion mathematics used by Abdelkader?

When Thompson was found, the roof of his blue Honda Accord had been crushed almost to the floor. The fireman who rescued him was amazed he hadn’t been decapitated. As he’d been sitting, helpless, in the wreck, Thompson had had a vivid near-death experience. He claimed to have seen a “light so bright that it burnt my eyes” and made him “legally blind” and to have had bizarre knowledge about the world poured into him. When he regained consciousness, he was convinced that the Earth was hollow and had an opening at the North Pole. He’d come on Coast to Coast to discuss his mission to locate and explore it.
That same decade a new theory about the hollow-earth appeared. It was the brainchild of Cyrus Read Teed. Teed proposed that the Earth was a hollow sphere and that people lived on the inside of it. In the center of the sphere was the sun, which was half dark and half light. As the sun turned it gave the appearance of a sunset and sunrise. The dense atmosphere in the center of the sphere prevented observers from looking up into the sky and seeing the other side of the world. Interestingly enough, Teed’s theory was hard for 19th century mathematicians to disprove based on geometry alone, since the exterior of a sphere can be mapped onto the interior with little trouble.
One of the most famous Hollow Earth theorists, and a true predecessor of Thompson, was a veteran of the 1812 Anglo-American war, John Symmes. In his book Banvard’s Folly, Paul Collins recounts the “theory of concentric spheres and polar voids” that preoccupied the soldier.
According to the Hollow Earth Hypothesis, planet Earth is either wholly hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. The hypothesis has long been contradicted by overwhelming observational evidence, as well as by the modern understanding of planet formation; the scientific community has dismissed the notion since at least the late 18th century.
The deepest hole drilled to date is the SG-3 borehole which is 12.3 km (7.6 miles) deep, part of the Soviet Kola Superdeep Borehole project; thus, visual knowledge of the Earth’s structure extends that far.
In a movie short from the NASA IMAGE satellite taken January 7, 2005, you can see the Inner Sun solar wind emanating from the South Polar Opening of Earth lighting up the Aurora Australis. The dark dot where the auroral radiation can been seen emanating from is the same area of low radar reflectivity seen in the RadarSat image of Antarctica that I have identified as the most likely location of the South Polar Opening.
Popper held that only testable models are scientific models. If no testable claim can be made, then the model is not falsifiable – and not science. The late British philosopher Bertrand Russell illustrated this point in 1952 by humorously declaring that ‘between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving around the Sun in an elliptical orbit’. Too small to be seen by telescopes, neither the existence nor non-existence of such a teapot can be tested by any reasonable experiment, argues Russell. ‘But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is intolerable presupposition on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense.’
After Admiral Richard E. Byrd returned to the United States with his fleet at the beginning of February 1947, he took a flight into the Arctic on February 15, 1947 to Our Hollow Earth through the North Polar Opening. He told Sylvia Darvell, who told John Gagne whom I met in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1981 that after the Admiral had flown past the ice through the North Polar Opening, he came to the Inner Continent where he was sided by flying saucer craft who took control of his airplane and landed him near an inner earth city. He was taken in by the giant people that live there and interviewed by one of their government officials. He was told that the people of Our Hollow Earth had witnessed the two Japanese cities, Nagasaki and Hiroshima (where many Japanese Christians lived) that were blown up with atomic weapons at the end of World War II. They gave Admiral Byrd a message to take back to Washington: “We consider ourselves the guardians of this planet for the Creator, and we do not want the people of outer earth to use atomic weapons in war any more.” Admiral Byrd was put back in his airplane and he delivered the message to Washington. His superiors put him under strict orders not to tell anyone what he had learned about our earth being hollow and inhabited by an advanced race of people and the ultimatum they gave not to use atomic weapons. But the Admiral just could not keep quiet about such an important subject and told his close friends, which is how we know what happened.
Regardless of where it originated, the model of a Hollow Earth managed to grow and survive. In 1818, John Cleves Symmes, Jr. published his Circular No. 1, declaring to the world that the Earth is hollow. Symmes, a veteran of the War of 1812 and unsuccessful trader, soon became maybe the most famous and successful proponent of the Hollow Earth theory. His initial vision of the Earth’s interior was like a simplified version of Halley’s multi-layered model, with the exception that Symmes’ version included huge holes at the North and South poles which allowed access to the hidden world inside. These holes, his unique addition to Hollow Earth theory, would even come to be known as “Symmes Holes.”
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.
The flying saucer people told Larry that their capital city is on their southern hemisphere. In fact, it is located 800 miles beneath Jackson County, Missouri. Their capital city is the City of Eden, built next to the original Garden of Eden, where Olaf Jansen found it in 1830 when he sailed there with his father “beyond the north wind” through the north polar opening, into the interior of our hollow earth where “the chosen people” live. They explained to Olaf that the garden he was taken to inside Our Hollow Earth was none other than the “navel of the earth,” and “the cradle of the human race,” and is called “Eden” and is located on the highest mountain plateau of the inner continent on their southern hemisphere. Since the directions of the compass are reverse of what they are on our surface world, our south pole is their north pole, then their southern hemisphere is beneath our northern hemisphere, and their capital city is beneath North America. The coordinates the saucermen gave Larry for their capital city were: South South West 1/4 9′ 3″ 10 sid, according to their coordinate system.
At this location for the North Polar Opening, notice also that the ice thickness image from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory also shows these same two spots giving thinner ice on each side of the opening, as well as the sea surface salinity is lower in these two spots, and the sea surface temperature is higher in these two same spots. As you can also see, in this NASA image of the Arctic ice for 2012, there is a hole in the ice at these same exact coordinates.
“There seems to be some force that’s trying to stop this happening,” he says. “I think it’s the international bankers. They don’t want the Inner Earth people messing around with their slaves, here on the outer world.”
We know we’ve been quiet, but don’t mistake silence for inactivity. We’ve been working on a collection of songs that we feel best represent our band, musically and lyrically, and can’t wait for everyone to hear what we have. #LP3
In some hollow Earth theories, there is a city or civilisation at the core of the Earth called Agartha (sometimes spelled Agartta, Agharti or Agarttha). This seems to derive from Aryavartha, which to the Hindus is the place of origin of the Vedas. An alternative name for this city is Shamballa (or Shambalah), which is Sanskrit for ‘place of peace’. Chinese, Russian and Kirgiz folklore all have their own names for a similar place. Sometimes, both names are used simultaneously (as in this map), with Agartha designating the whole interior and Shamballa the main city.
