Vela Incident

Vela Incident – South Atlantic Flash

The Vela Incident is also referred as the South Atlantic Flash which is an unidentified double flash of light that was detected on September 22, 1979, near the Prince Edwards Islands off Antarctica, by American Satellite where several of the people are of the belief that it was of nuclear origin.

Around 3.00 am on that day, a US Atomic Energy Detection System satellite recorded a type of pattern of intense flashes in the remote area of the Indian Ocean and a little while later; an unusual fast moving ionospheric disturbance was spotted by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico while simultaneously a distant muffled thud was heard by the US Navy’s undersea Sound Surveillance System.

A `double flash’ though is characteristic of a nuclear weapon test, the signal could have been a spurious electronic signal generated by an aging detector of an old satellite or it could be a meteoroid hitting the Vela satellite. Something explosive and violent could have transpired in the ocean towards the southern area of Africa. On examination from the data gathered by satellite Vela 6911, it strongly indicated that the result of these disturbances was the nuclear device.

Vela Satellite Network Established by United States

Patterns of the flashed was said to have matched with those prior to nuclear detections with none of the phenomenon known that could have produced the same millisecond scale signature. However, the US intelligence agencies were speculating on who could be responsible for the detonation and the US governments were reluctant to acknowledge the same.

The Vela satellite network was established by the United States for specific purpose of monitoring compliance with the 1963 Partial Test Ban Treaty and though the satellites’ lifespan was only eighteen months, the units proceeded to detect detonations for several years thereafter. Before the incident in September, the orbital surveillance system had been successful in recording forty one atomic detonations, out of which twelve were spotted by Vela satellite 6911.

The Vela satellites though bristling with atom-bomb sensing equipment, have their effective apparatus of each unit’s pair named bhang-meters and these photo diode arrays were designed to detect the one millisecond burst of intense light that was created by nuclear fireball while the subsequent secondary light was caused by the hydrodynamic shockwave of ionized air.

Data Indicated Incident – Bouvet Island

The engineers of sensor were not convinced of its potential and they decided to name it after the Indian variation of cannabis known as `bhang’ though the predictable pattern of the flashed seemed to be an effective method in detecting atomic explosion from the orbit. The technicians were not provided with the exact location of nuclear events due to the satellite’s design together with their distant orbit of 70,000 miles and the sensors could only narrow down the area to 3,000 mile radius.

The data that was available indicated that the Vela incident took place near Bouvet Island which was a frozen part of earth popularly known as the most isolated isle in the world. The island was a home to Norwegian automated weather station and an abandoned lifeboat filled with supplies was found there in 1964, the origin of which was not known. With meteorological automations and enigmatic castaways withstanding, it was presumed that at the time of the energetic event, the island was totally uninhabited.

Georgia Guidestones

The Georgina Guidestones – Huge Granite Monument

The Georgina Guidestones is a huge granite monument in Elbert County, Georgia in United States and engraved on the four giant stone supporting the common capstone is a message clearly conveying a set of ten guidelines inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, one language on each side of the four large upright stones with a shorter message inscribed towards the top of the structure in four ancient language script namely Babylonian, Classical Greek, and Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs. Moving clockwise round the structure from due north, the languages used are, English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.

This monument has been referred to as the Georgia Guidestones or the American Stonehenge. Though it is not known to many, it is an important link to Occult Hierarchy dominating the world in which we live. The monument is around 19 feet 3 inches in height and is made from six granite slabs weighing a total of 237,746 pounds. While one slab stands in the centre, there are four arranged round it and a capstone is placed on top of the five slabs that are astronomically aligned. Besides the stone tablet, set in the ground, some distance to the west of the structure one will find some notes on the purpose and the history of the Guidestones.

Origin – A Mystery

Origin of the strange monument is a mystery since no one is aware of the true identity of the person or persons who were responsible for its construction. All that is known is that in June 1979, a well-dressed stranger had visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and had informed that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He was identified as R.C. Christian though it soon became known that it was not his real name.

He had informed that he represented a group of men who were keen in offering direction to humanity but till date and two decades thereafter, no one is aware of who R.C. Christian really was or the names of those representing his group. The message inscribed on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four important fields: Governance and the establishment of a world government, population and reproduction control, the environment and man’s relationship to nature and spirituality

Message Inscribed 

The messages of the Georgia Guidestones are: 

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance and nature. 

Guide reproduction wisely, improving fitness and diversity

Unite humanity with a living new language

Rule passion – faith, tradition and all things with tempered reason

Protect people and nations with fair law and just courts

Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court

Avoid petty laws and useless officials

Balance personal rights with social duties

Prize truth, beauty, love, seeking harmony with the infinite

Be not a cancer on the earth. Leave room for nature, Leave room nature. 

The Guidestones has become a subject of speculation for conspiracy theorist with many debating on the purpose of its presence. The monument was unveiled in March 1980 in the presence of 100 people while another account state, March 22, 1980 in the presence of around 400 people.

Loch Ness Monster

Loss Ness Monster – Cryptid Inhabiting Loss Ness 

Loss Ness Monster is considered to be cryptid inhabiting Loch Ness in the Scottish Highland and is similar to other lake monsters in Scotland and other places. Although its description differs from one account to another, many have described it as being very huge. The interest and belief in the existence of the animals differs since it was first brought into focus in 1933 and the evidence of its existence is anecdotal with less and much disputed photographic matter as well as sonar readings.

The Loch Ness Monster also known as Nessie is one of the most well-known urban legends of present times and also the greatest point of interest for crypto zoologist scientists studying animals which have not been proven of its existence. The first sightings of Nessie was documented in 565 when Saint Columba had saved a swimmer from being its dinner and for almost 1500 years thereafter, the Loch Ness Monster seemed to appear in stories though it is unknown whether there were eyewitness accounts or if they were invented for the purpose of entertainment. The legend of the monster continued to be passed on from one generation to the next where its popularity became the focus of attention in 1933.

Popular Theory of Ness Loch Monster ….

A new road was constructed that year near the loch and travellers reported more sights of the creatures than before. The infamous Surgeon’s Photo was published later that year, portraying what appeared to be a head with a long neck that stretched out of the loch water. Towards 1994, an individual who had shot the Surgeon’s Photo made a confession on his deathbed that the said photo was only a hoax.

This dashed the hopes of some people and though what was thought to be the best evidence was considered false, the other parts of evidence of the monster, seemed to be alive in the minds of many people with several stories of similar lake monsters in Lake Michigan, Iceland, Lake Champlain and various other places. Popular theory of Ness Loch monster is that it is a plesiosaur which is an aquatic dinosaur species, said to have died during the early Jurassic era while other presume it could be a giant sea serpent while still others deny its existence.

Photos/Videos – Not Adequately Convincing 

Though crude photos and videos of the Loch Ness Monster are found on television specials as well as YouTube, none of them are adequately convincing enough to consider the existence of the creature. Inspire of it, there has been several breakthroughs in the field of crypto-zoology which shows some possibility of the same.The first possibility in 1901 was the discovery of the okapi, a mammal with a giraffe like head with zebra striped legs where the animal has been portrayed in ancient Egyptian drawings which was very popular by certain tribes in Africa though it has never been seen or documented by any western explorers. The okapi is said to have occupied only a small portion in central Africa and it took a long time to locate them and the same possibility could be applicable to Nessie.

Great Zimbabwe Ruins


Great Zimbabwe Ruins – Largest Collections of Ruins in Africa

The Great Zimbabwe ruins are the largest collection of ruins in Africa towards the south of the Sahara. Situated in the heart of southern Africa between Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers these amazing ruinsare testament to a culture of excellent wealth and great architectural skill. During the country’s late Iron Age, it was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe.

The construction on the monument began during the 11th century by ancestors of the Shona people which continued till the 15th century covering an area of 722 hectares which could have housed around 18,000 people. It is now recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. As per UNESCO, the method of construction used in Great Zimbabwe was unique in the continent’s architecture and though there are cases of identical work elsewhere, none seem to be exceptions and imposing as these ruins.

Attention is drawn at first sight at the high level of craftsmanship which was used in the construction of the site where skilful stonemasons had built massive dry stone wall and incorporated large natural boulders in some of the structures. Walls were extended between the rocky outcrops as well as massive rocks formed a maze of narrow passageways and enclosures.

Three Architectural Zones – Hill Complex/Valley Ruins/Great Enclosure

The site is divided into three main architectural zones and the Hill Complex is considered as a royal site while the Valley Ruins are series of living space. The Great Enclosure is the most impressive and a spectacular circular monument which has been made of cut granite blocks that was built entirely in curves.

 The outer wall extends to some 250 meters having a maximum height of 11 meters making it the largest single pre-colonial structure in Africa, south of Sahara. Great Zimbabwe served as a royal palace and would have been considered as the seat of political power for the Zimbabwe monarch. Its most appealing features were the walls, some of which were over five metres high and were constructed without the use of mortar. The city was eventually abandoned and fell into ruins.

Important Artefacts Recovered

Great Zimbabwe was home to cattle herding locals who were also well skilled in metal work. The ruins are the largest of its kind on Zimbabwe Plateau.Other miniature site had been ruined by European treasure hunters during the 19th century and these smaller ruins are known as zimbabwes which are found as far as Mozambique while the largest of them all are the ruins of Great Zimbabwe. Religious life was rich in Great Zimbabwe and trade kept the community prosperous.

Important artifacts recovered from the monument are 8 Zimbabwe birds which have been carved from a micaceous schist or soapstone on the tops of monoliths, the height of a person. In the Eastern Enclosure of the Hill Complex are slots in a platform which appear to be designed to hold the monoliths with the Zimbabwe birds and though they were not traced, it is not clear about the monolith and birds. Besides these, other artifacts include soapstone figurine, pottery, iron gongs, elaborately worked ivory, iron and copper wire, iron hoes, copper ingots and crucibles, bronze spearheads, gold beads, bracelets, pendants and sheaths.
