Entering our Hollow Earth (video)

No one believes in a contoured earth that is not a perfect globe like on our teacher's desk. No one believes anyone is living underground, even when they come up. No one believes there are massive caverns and cave systems so long one could spend a lifetime exploring them and still not be able to map a fraction of their lengths. But it's interesting that some of them are here in the U.S. Not only do we have bullet trains crisscrossing the nation in the form of tunnels shuttling scientists in off book projects, there are ancient cave systems the Native Americans knew about.

With a staggering 400 miles (640 km) of surveyed passageways, Mammoth Cave is by far the world's longest known cave system. H.P. Lovecraft's short story, "The Beast in the Cave," is set in Mammoth Cave. Several sets of Native American skeletons have been recovered in the caverns, with many of the mummified remains indicating intentional pre-Columbian funerary practices. Could there have been civilizations that took refuge deep inside these massive caverns? (AtlanteanGardens)

Then there are those pesky reptilian tunnels that run from Los Angeles's Southwest Museum to the coast. What better cure for doubt than some pictures? There is a civilization deep within our hollow earth called Agartha, a land of milk and honey, Shangri-La, Shambhala, Eden, Rama, a land of blue beings (like Krishna?), and even a world near where the Buddha was born in Afghanistan where a chakravartin "world monarch" lives. The Buddha's karma was such -- as was his son's and his cousin Ananda's -- that he could have ascended to the position. Amazing confirmation of the many openings and unknown "worlds" hinted at by sacred mythologies comes from the Nazis' search for all these sacred places and artifacts.
