Episode #017: Mysteries of the Maps, the Holy Grail

We explore the strange and interesting Mystery of the Maps; Portolano Projection maps made during the 15th and 16th century that appear to contain information incongruous with the state of cartographic and navigational knowledge and ability at the time. We explain "the problem of Longitude" which wasn't overcome until the late 1800s, yet there exist many 16th and 17th century maps with areas of very precise longitude, better than anything we could do up to as recently as the 1950s.
We also outline the work of Dr. Charles Hapgood, who studied many of these maps currently housed in the Congressional Library, who went on to publish a book called "Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings"

We also delve into the original Grail legend, wandering the vast and intimidating labyrinth of Grail Lore and esoterica, until eventually we surprise everyone(ourselves included) by emerging into the light on the othet side with a possible solution to this age-old mystery.

Episode #016: Ancient Aliens and Lost Civilizations

In this episode we start out with a strange news item about alien/reptilian looking mummified bodies found in Peru, then from there we move on to the Ancient Alien hypothesis vs the Ancient Advanced Civilization hypothesis, consciousness and quantum mechanics, cryogenics and AI, life, the universe, and everything.

Episode #015: The Greatest Man Alive and Electricity

In this episode we have a guest, Archer Finley aka GMA(Greatest Man Alive), close friend and SnakeBro who has a degree in Electrical Engineering. So we spend most of the episode asking him questions about electricity and totally not understanding the answers. We also ask his opinion on whether ancient civilizations could have had some understanding of electrical forces. We talk about telluric currents, the Shuttle Tether mission(which was STS 75, not STS 80 as Russ said on the show), Nikola Tesla, and more.

Episode #014: Elastic Universe Hypothesis and the Black Knight Satellite


We start this episode off with a few interesting news items that lead to another short discussion about the Elastic Universe Hypothesis and how it might be tested via an interesting anomaly that happens only beneath a full solar eclipse. And also how archaeologists are dumb because for like a hundred years they've been trying to study ancient astronomical observatories during the daytime.

We then move on to the subject of the Black Knight Satellite at the request of a listener(thanks J), which means we get into Long Delay Echoes, ancient space probes, Phillip K. Dick and V.A.L.I.S.

After that, we talk about a strange correlation between gigantic pyramids in Mexico, China, and Indonesia, then finish up with a brief discussion of a very mysterious place in China known as the Longyou Grottoes.

Some believe this photo taken from the space shuttle captured the elusive Black Knight

This map does not include comets. We're all gonna die.

Teotihuacan




It's pretty big.....I guess




Why was this place encased in Mica??


Volcanic mountain near Teotihuacan



Pyramids in China




They refer to them as "mausoleums"


They're totally not pyramids. See the trees? Hills. Just hills.


Pyramid of the first Chinese emperor. The Terracotta warriors are nearby.


The top of Gunung Padang in Indonesia

The top level was made using basalt columns that form naturally when lava hits seawater

The top level is about 2500 years old. The lowest levels are 30,000 years old.


The Terracotta Warriors

This is just a few of them....there are over 6,000 in total, plus horses

That's a lotta clay mmkay

Note each has very unique individual features


One of the Longyou Grottoes. The light is coming through an opening that was the original pool on the surface

Who did this? Where did all the rock go? Where are the fish?


That would seem like a "bottomless" pool

Note the extremely uniform marks on the walls

Each grotto is many levels deep

The rooms are cavernous and huge

A close-up of the marks on the walls. Toothpicks and dedication? Or advanced machinery?
