His plans for peace talks were quickly rebutted, and so began his 46-year incarceration. Hesss imprisonment is one of the most widely discussed mysteries of created in the ice in the war. Some claim he was imprisoned because of the damage any revelations he possessed would inflict on the British monarchy. Others claim that Britains refusal Neuschwabenland, of his peace proposal led to the nations huge losses territorially, materially, financial- ly and emotionally; because of his silencing, the British people never heard the peace after Hitlers death terms or learned how beneficial they may have proved.

Rudolph Hess was also an active member of the Thule Society, and his interest in Antarctica would have been on both personal and professional levels.

Byrd, a living legend throughout the world for being the first man to fly over both the north and south poles, was possibly the most well-informed polar explorer ever, and he divulged his vast knowledge and details of his exploits to the Nazis.

  • Dynamics of critical days as part of the dynamics of non-specific stress syndrome discovered during monitoring with Cotwatch breathing monitor R ecent editorials in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) by a number of authors have motivated me to publish the results of research into babies breathing. This was research that the late Leif Karlsson (a Swedish biomedical electronics engi- neer living in Australia) and I conducted with the Cotwatch breathing monitor, Scientific evidence developed by Leif in 1985–86 at my suggestion. Leif died in 1994 and the Cotwatch breathing monitor died with him: I had it delisted with the Therapeutic Goods shows that babies Administration (TGA), and since 1994 it has not been distributed. Cotwatch was a true breathing monitor, meaning its electronics separated heartbeat and can have severe breathing and only breathing delayed the alarm. The feedback on breathing from the stan- dard home monitor was from alarms (figure 1), while the microprocessor-based unit pro- adverse reactions to vided computer printouts of the record of breathing in the form of histograms stacked up at an angle (figure 2) or vertical bars (figures 3, 4), the length of which directly reflected vaccinations at the stress level as integrals of the weighted apnoea/hypopnoea density (WAHD). critical intervals The record of alarms in a baby over a period of five-and-a-half months, from October 1987 to March 1988 (figure 1), reveals that the stress-induced breathing pattern did not following their subside after 21 days following vaccine administration: it was still continuing on and off (following the critical days) two-and-a-half to three months later; and before really recov- shots, and that ering from the first lot, the child was given the second injection of DPT and oral polio vaccines. Cotwatch recorded events in breathing: apnoeas (pauses in breathing) and vaccination is the hypopnoeas (low-volume breathing, i.e., below 5% of the volume of normal unstressed breathing). The events were logarithmically weighted (the figures on the vertical axis of more likely cause of the computer printouts are integrals of the WAHD). The first two charts in figure 3 are computer printouts of the record of events in breath- cot death and ing in two babies: baby one, who was given the third DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) shaken baby vaccine and OPV (oral polio vaccine); and baby two, who was given the first DPT and OPV. The higher the vertical bar, the higher the stress level in breathing; figure 3 shows syndrome. flare-ups of stress-induced breathing day by day from day 0 when the vaccines were administered and up to the 17th day. It is obvious that even though baby one reacted much more than baby two, the flare-ups of stressed breathing followed the same pattern of critical days, the most important of these being day 2, after which day the stress level went down and started rising again between days 5 and 7, when the stress level subsided and started increasing again between days 14–16, subsided again and rose again between days 19–24, after which it subsided and rose again towards the 28th day and so on, following closely the pattern of alarms as recorded by a mother of one baby (figure 1). Days 10 or 11 also emerged as critical days in babies who reacted strongly, such as baby one.

  • THE HIDDEN SYMMETRY T he Great Pyramid of Giza stands alone as an enigma in time, and this incredible structure has long defied explanation. Much has been written by scholars, math- ematicians, archaeologists, occultists and religious followers alike, adding layer after layer of mystery, speculation and theory to the only remaining wonder of the world. The common explanation is that it is merely a tomb belonging to the Egyptian A new theory born Pharaoh Khufu, although this is only attributed to a single cartouche high up in one of the so-called "relieving chambers". of geometry, Over the past 20 years I have studied many theories and, in doing so, built up a large library of information, both rare and mainstream, allowing me to carefully weigh the evi- photographic dence so as to extract the elements which I felt were the most important. My idea is born from basic geometry, photographic evidence, scientific fact and a sound knowledge of evidence, science three-dimensional construction. The theory I will present here is one which I have not seen explored in any documentation or book prior to this writing. It is my intent to prove and 3-D graphic the existence of a second, mirror-image set of chambers and passageways inside the Great constructions Pyramid of Giza. [Figure 1] The duplicity of the internal chambers first struck me while I was practising basic suggests that a geometry on paper with a conventional compass and ruler. Starting by halving the base length, I made this the radius for a circle. Placing a circle at each of the points, I then second, mirror- made a cross in the centre of each of the two bottom circles at 90 degrees to the angle of the sides of the triangle. [Figure 2] image set of This gave me the building blocks of a whole new idea. I believe that everything in life has meaning or purpose, and that everything happens for a reason. With that in mind, I chambers and wondered what would happen if I connected the centre points of the circles with the oppo- site circumference. This generated what I have come to term the "Infinite Star". passageways exists Suddenly I realised that here was also a direct representation of the angles of the ascend- within the Great ing and descending passageways of the Great Pyramid. I realised that this shape could be repeated and enlarged, creating infinite pyramids and infinite stars. The other shape Pyramid. which appears is, of course, the pentagram. [Figure 3] I was fortunate to come across the original plan for Washington, DC, and the Pentagon, designed by Pierre-Charles LEnfant, a French Freemason who was well acquainted with Benjamin Franklin at the time. On it, you can clearly see the Infinite Star and the Masonic Square. [Figure 4] The next thing was to overlay a copy of the internal chambers of the Great Pyramid over my geometry, and it proved to be a perfect match. But something was missing. The more I looked at it, the more I began to wonder: where is the rest of it? The Great Pyramid is a wonder of mathematical design, and yet in the same sense it contains pas- sageways and chambers which are not symmetrical—or are they? by James Colmer © 2005 I use Photoshop a lot in my work and I decided it was time to see what would happen if I mirrored the chambers. To my astonishment, the missing symmetry suddenly jumped Bimmini Special Effects Studios out at me like a startled rabbit from a magicians hat. The strange thing was that the so-called "air shafts" now lined up, as though pointing to Email: something. I laid this image on top and found that everything lined up, including the Website: shafts. My theory of the Master Plan is presented diagrammatically [page 37, top right]. The units of measure are arbitrary, as long as you keep the 51°, 51° and 14° angles. The circles have a radius of half the base, and you will find four duplicate triangles and one large one in the design, all with exactly the same repeating geometry.

  • "mirrored" layout of the chambers of the Great Pyramid, you can see the remarkable correlation. I have long been a supporter of Robert Bauval and Graham Hancocks Orion theory, as it fits with my notion that the Pyramid was much more than just a tomb for a dead king. If you are familiar with their books, you will know that they suggest these shafts point to specific stars and constellations, and that the Great Pyramid is a kind of precessional "clock". I always believed deep down it could be a kind of Stargate for the Pharaohs to ascend to another world. I could not ignore, however, the simplicity of what was unfolding before me. But wait a minute: how could there be a second set of passageways? Surely they would bump into each other, unless of course they were offset somehow.Figure 1 Immediately I rushed to my book collection to find a front view of the layout of the chambers, and confirmed that they were indeed offset. This didnt really prove anything, because in two dimensions it still looked like the chambers bumped into each other. This meant I had to go to three dimensions. Not being completely literate in 3-D programs, I decided to use Bryce, a very easy and user-friendly program which gave me enough information to prove a point. By this time, I was getting excited and wanted to see hard evidence. The result was amazing. I could now see how it was possible for an identical but mirrored set of chambers and passageways to exist inside the Great Pyramid. I took it one step further and ren- dered it transparent to show the location of the coffer. To my sur- prise, it was the only object which lined up on the centreline of the structure. Now, here was something really interesting. It appeared as though I was looking at a complex machine which appeared to have cooling fins like an amplifier and casings for positive and negative batteries. We already know that everything has a positive and negative aspect. Male and female, light and dark, yin and yang. I could now see why the chambers we already know of are aligned to magnetic north. This of course means thatFigure 2 the other must be aligned due south, making a positive and nega- tive circuit. [See diagrams on page 40.] Figure 4Figure 336 • NEXUS OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2005
  • The Boss or Great Seal – the KeyThe key to the Grand Design is located conveniently but crypticallyin the boss on the granite leaf at the entry to the antechamber. Thiscypher I believe was left behind as a marker or a kind of measure ofthe Pyramid and its dimensions. By deciphering the key, one couldfind the hidden geometry and discover the hidden chambers.The Missing Hole in the Kings Chamber It follows that if there was once a connection between these twopower cells, then you would expect to find some sort of openingat the end of the coffer in the wall or floor. Looking at an originalphoto taken around 1910 by the Edgar brothers, I discovered thatin fact there was such an opening. The photo shows the hole visi-ble on the floor to the right of the coffer [page 41, top]. In thepresent-day photos, however, it has mysteriously disappeared, andthe coffer itself has also been strangely cemented in place [page41, bottom]. I remember the words of Ed Leedskalnin, the man who builtCoral Castle in Florida. He once stated that he had re-discoveredthe secrets of the construction methods used to build thePyramids. He went on to explain that "everything on this Earth ismade up of north and south pole magnets". Is this truly an ancient power cell or generator of some kind ofenergy like hydrogen?The Lost Ark and White Powder Gold Many people, like myself, believe that the Ark of the Covenantwas once housed inside the coffer of the Kings Chamber. Inorder to confirm the possibility of this, I researched the originaldimensions of both the Ark and the space inside the coffer, con-verted them to centimetres and found they fitted perfectly. There was about a 3-mm gap each side of the Ark, and the 43cm at each end could easily house the rings and device for liftingit in and out. Note that space is provided for the rings at the ends If it is true and there are two sets of chambers, then it stands to(not sides) of the Ark, so that the Ark would then be presented reason that there could have been two Arks (Arcs).

The Ark, if not handled with caution, could be a deadly source of electrical power even today. Structure and Sonic Properties Another interesting and supportive piece of information is that different types of stone were used in the construction of the Great Pyramid. Most of the structure is built from limestone, which is primarily made up of quartz. The Kings Chamber, however, is insulated with red granite. If indeed there was an energy or heat being gen- erated inside this chamber, it would be no problem as granite can withstand temperatures of over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Granite is also used in sound production to reduce vibration and resonance. Multiple separated layers of granite (as in the reliev- ing chambers) can be used to absorb seismic vibration which is harmful to sound production.Cross-section of the Queens Chamber and the Grand Gallery. While we are on the topic of sound, it is interesting to note that38 • NEXUS OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2005
  • the Grand Gallery seems to be tunable, via its stepped ceiling con-struction, to four octaves. The antechamber before the Kings Chamber, with its portcullisgrooves and granite leaf, is reminiscent of a giant reed for tuningthe cavity. In musical terms, the Kings Chamber resonates at 740 Hz = Fsharp. The coffer resonates at 440 Hz = A. In music, pitch is the perception of the frequency of a note. Forexample, the A above middle C is nowadays set at 440 Hz (oftenwritten as "A = 440 Hz", and known as "concert pitch"). Pitch isoften cited as one of the fundamental aspects of music. If youve ever filled a series of bottles with water at differentlevels and used them as an instrument, you can understand theprinciples behind tuning the Gallery. Perhaps the Pyramid is a giant crystal set, capable of receivingsignals from far-off planets.Tuning the Grand Gallery The ceiling of the Gallery has a total of 40 incremental tuningsteps to measure water height and frequency. Dividing the cham-ber into two, there are 20 ceiling corbels or notches plus eightsteps each end, making two sets of 28, and there are also 28 rampholes. This equates to four sets of seven notes or frequencies,remembering that the eighth note in an octave is actually the firstnote of the second. Water rising in the Gallery fills the centre pit at a higher level,which would create a greater pressure behind an object designedto be raised up and down the Gallery. The ramp holes may havehoused rollers and guides, and the wall grooves reflect a linearmovement as they are relative to the angle of the ramp. Reports have also been made by tourists in the subterraneanchamber that they can clearly hear the unmistakable sound of thecoffer being struck by guides, coming down through the ceiling.This seems to point to, and certainly there is room for, a verticalshaft running directly down the centre of the Pyramid. I believe that, as a part of the system of the Great Pyramid, salt-water was pumped up from the subterranean chamber, hence theeroded, unfinished appearance and the presence of salt on thewalls up to the level of the Queens Chamber.

  • T o most eyes, the 2005 crop circle season seemed bolder and more imaginative in its design sweep than the previous one. Though 2004 had been no disgrace, there appeared to be a new impetus and an adventurous nature behind the ever- Bold angular evolving shapes that graced the fields this year. Simultaneously, brand new forms of design were explored, while old styles were formations, optical revisited in new and more advanced ways. There was a sense of previous boundaries being pushed—with everything from more than one crop formation crossing a road and illusions and continuing on into another field (not previously unheard of, but rare), to highly accurate optical illusions and an emphasis on harder, more angular forms like triangles and striking diamonds. As for the more traditional elements, these were taken to new levels—as seen in the formation near Avebury on 27th July, which had four Celtic crosses bound together developments on in a striking, unified pattern. A simple glance at the continuing ingenuity in the fields reveals just why the crop circle previous themes mystery refuses to go away.

It appeared to embody Mayan symbols around its outer line that all crop edge, prompting much speculation about its connection to the ancient prophecies and time cycles which point to the year 2012 as being a pivotal time of change. However, this year circles are saw a number of further formations which some said tapped into this symbolism, though the most overt example was the very complex design which arrived at Waylands Smithy man-made. in Oxfordshire on 9th August.

This was in a TVseries, broadcast in July and presented by David Dimbleby, look-ing at the influence of the British landscape on artists down theages. Again, the plankers were presented as, in effect, the onlycomponent of the mystery. However, for all this scepticism and rhetoric, interest in the cropcircles remained high, with large numbers of cerealogical visitorsand tour groups roaming the fields of Wiltshire and beyond. TheGlastonbury Symposium, for instance, the longest-running of allthe croppie gatherings, sold out faster than any previous year, andthe summer managed to support at least four big circle-relatedevents within just weeks (and in some cases days) of each other. One of the most complex designs of the year was theastonishingly detailed mandala found not far from the famouswhite horse of Uffington in Oxfordshire on 13th August. Thisformation contained elements of many of the summers themes allin one, almost as a summing-up of the season. There was a finalflurry of ingenuity towards the end of August—in particular, an Boxley, near Maidstone, Kent.

These were the last formations at the time of writing. There were about 70 crop patterns in the UK this summer—fewer than in some years, more than in others, and pretty much ona par with last years 77 figure. Meanwhile, other countries received their fair share of ingeniousglyphs, too. However, in several countries including Germany, thecircle-makers seem to have gone back to basics this year with sim-pler glyphs on the whole—the one exception being a German pic-togram in the style of the famous 1990 types. In Italy, Poland andeven Russia (where scientists have apparently declared that cropcircles are the result of "lightning strikes", according to theirmedia), they seem to have delved into more complexity. But thereis no question that England remains the heart of the phenomenon,where its finest works continue to be etched in the fields. Thus the crop circle phenomenon—with all its mysteries,paradoxes, controversies and quirks—continues unabated, and thejourneys of the mind kicked off by the inner questioning inspiredby the glyphs continue to take many people to new and unexpectedplaces in their lives and thinking. Long may it reign—at least until Watlington Road, near Chalgrove, Oxfordshire.2012… ∞ Reported 22nd July.
