The collective Unconscious is like a band, an energy field of collective buried memory that works many of us unconsciously, we may react impulsively, or even feel we are correct in our responses, yet others not of the same ilk find it threatening or just rude, whilst we may be appalled at their behaviour and amazed at their culture and mannerisms which they take for granted. In a way we are all robotic to our own habits and reactive coping mechanisms.
These bands kind of represent the 'bands of culture(ingrained, learned culture, brain washed programming) that joins those on this line of thought and habitual response and so might clash with other lines or bands elsewhere. This is seen very openly now with the mass assylm seekers, with refugees in their thousands, fleeing their comfort and going to another culture. For some it is hard to adjust to Western so called 'liberty and expression' seen as to some ungodly and shameful and to the others those are stuffy repressed old outworn customs.
Imagine the top of the well is the world of every day living, separated seemingly from everything accept your body, even that may seem a stranger to some.
Imagine going down the ropes, or in a bucket, or a lift, breathing gently and go steadily down, soon the outside world wanes, and as you go deeper, the habits, familiarities are beginning to thin out.
At this juncture you may feel unease as the familiar is not there and there is darkness and you may feel separated and lonely.
Have the courage of a spiritual warrior who faces the unknown in themselves.
Should you find the courage to reach the bottom you may find an endless stream, a river and you may have the realisation at this level ALL are one and there are no bands or cultures, there is a realisation that at this fundamental level we are ONE. One Humanity, one destiny , one divinity. A divinity with no name or affiliation, one melts into the oneness that is humanity and the Universal self.
When I showed this image to the local group in the park there was some consternation, some said it was Christian, some said it wasn't Universal and the cross is not in all religions or cults, I said I chose this because to me it represented an open armed welcome leading to a hug. Some walked away and were sad and said I was biased and could have found something else, however, I chose it and it is my view.
Those who stayed discussed this and asked me to elaborate, I replied you do not have to be religious or follow a religion or believe in God or a divinity, we all can feel compassion, love that is non sexual or conditioned, one finds this at the bottom of the well. It is a feeling not logical and intellectual(top of well the head) but at the bottom the heart, not a drooling goody good shoes, an emotional sop, nay, a cool gentle steady compassion.
Some who stayed related to Post 234 and felt this block in the mind, a hard place to shift from ones persistent brain washed political, religious and peer pressure. They felt it as 'swimming against the tide'.

mathematicians believe that an inside-out universe, with properly adjusted

Some who stayed related to Post 234 and felt this block in the mind, a hard place to shift from ones persistent brain washed political, religious and peer pressure. They felt it as 'swimming against the tide'.
Since everything in the Universe is frequency and vibration we may view the bands of culture and so on at the head of the well as bandwidth frequencies like a TV, Radio programme of xyz hertz and so on. So those brain synapses attuned to those frequencies no matter where they are a conglomerate and others have theirs, each allowed a slight variation within the frequency range, more like a harmonic, a variation on a theme.
In Post 234 and in Bill Harris's Holosync, Judith Pennington and many others say that the deeper you go into the mind as it were the alpha , beta, theta and delta( I went into this in depth in energygrid years back) the brain waves get more amplitude(by the way I have seen two soprano opera singers shatter glass\) the amplitude increases.
It is my view that as we deepen the experience of the well which is really going to the deeper levels of frequency, the amplitude could 'soften' the 'fists' or bands of resistance in the mind and the 'sound waves of the mind shatter the past hard- and- fast tight held views. This may come as ah ha, a gentle sliding away like a slithering snake into the undergrowth never to return and sometimes coming back when reaching the surface the busy beta / alpha.
So many visits to the well are needed. When I first met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi many, many years ago with my friend Roy Morris, he said to both of us that we had dived deeply into the ocean and found some pearls and were bringing it back to the surface to spend it wisely in the market place. We looked at him in amazement. When I told Sifu /Sensei both warned me, Sensei said 'now you will be like a chicken with two heads', Sifu laughed and said you will be a swaggering little shit'. Make of that what you will, it certainly grounded me and left me in a quandary.
A few scientists and I have been looking into sound, colour and ancient forms such as Yantra. Sanskrit, Aramaic and other ancient phonetic((Of a system of writing) having a direct correspondence between symbols and sounds:
Some excellent mandalas and explanations. Thanks Wikipedia.
Of course when the mind is clear the awareness is the witness and not 'held' captive or addicted to the top of the well outward world as it were. The world still goes by and there is recognition of it, one it not just an idle moronic stupefied vegetable, one is in the world and not of it, one is not detached and remote or engrossed and bound, one is the centre point on the see saw and takes in both dualities, and instead of feeling them opposites, pulling against as polarities, one sees them as complementaries.
Very Typical of today.

THE POWER OF THE MIND 10 MINS
APOLOGY FROM ME;
I have had a lot emails and other contacts telling me that I am too strict regarding meditation as a stand alone technique. Having spoken this over with some very wise people and a series of events in my life just recently I have come to realise that affirmations with Intent, Webinars, Mantras, Yantra's, visualisations and other aids, have a very, very important part to play as well as the medics. I have been too harsh and enthusiastic and if I have offended anyone, I sincerely apologise. I still feel it is important, but recently I have had to rely on those above as mentioned and realise I have to learn not to be so judgemental and hypocritical. I beg your kind forgiveness if my offerings have been too stringent. I have had to face my worst demons lately and did not cope very well. I now have an open mind as to aspects I formerly would have ignored. I apologise to all the medical profession I have lambasted. I feel humbled and humiliated and yet relieved. Thank you and hope I have not lost you.
17 MORE STARLING FACTS RE 9 / 11 12MINS
Has Science discovered God. 26 mins
I was OK with the science in the above and then it went to Christianity. I love Jesus and have always thought of Jesus as a 'God Man', not a Christian. I also have read and there is proof that other men have risen. One of them was Sri Yukteswar did and several others from different religions and tribes. I felt Buddha, Moses, Mohammed, Guru Nanak, Joan of Ark, and so many others were and are God Infused People. They are not God per se, they have turned out their own personal agenda's and live by the 'mind or spirit of God'. This to me is the crucifixion of the ego, the dissipation and suspension of personal beliefs(local mind) and expanded into limitless space which is the invisible nature of God.
The only reason I say this about Christianity is that it limits all others who are not Christians. I do not feel you have to have a religion or doctrine to be feel God or believe in God.
I have felt that from the emptiness, the void which is the potential energy of God, the Supreme Being, The architect of Life, The creator, The Source, came a huge explosion, like a GIANT AH HA, EUREKA!, and if you have had a powerful one of these you will know all the information comes in a micro milli flash, and unfolds as one comes to 'grips' with it. It is original, spontaneous and intuitive. So maybe God is outworking his /her Ah- Ha, which is the expanding Universe.
By the way many Eastern Philosophies and religions talk about the that 'All comes out of the void, emptiness, nothing' and being in this state of deep relaxation one is in inner peace when one realises that the source of creation comes out from this invisible source. From what seems empty arises the incredible intelligence of Creation in which you and I and everything are made up from, indeed we are in the mind of God, God indeed is aware of us, the question I ask myself 'Am I aware of Him / Her and can I surrender my small ego(large to some) to let my arrogance subside, not to be self effacing, and play at the humble being, but joyously know that the Supreme Being can be trusted with my Life in every way. This is my path, the path of joyful surrender(sometimes kicking and bucking) and to say ' Father Mother God, take me lock stock and barrel and into your hands I commend my soul'

Supposed to be from Admiral Byrd's Log
Flight Log: Base Camp Arctic,
2/19/194706.00 Hours - All preparations are complete for our flight northward and we are airborne with full fuel tanks at 0610 Hours.06.20 Hours - fuel mixture on starboard engine seems too rich, adjustment made and Pratt Whittneys are running smoothly.07.30 Hours - Radio Check with base camp. All is well and radio reception is normal.07.40 Hours - Note slight oil leak in starboard engine, oil pressure indicator seems normal, however.08.00 Hours - Slight turbulence noted from easterly direction at altitude of 2321 feet, correction to 1700 feet, no further turbulence, but tail wind increases, slight adjustment in throttle controls, aircraft performing very well now.08.15 Hours- Radio Check with base camp, situation normal.08.30 Hours - Turbulence encountered again, increase altitude to 2900 feet, smooth flight conditions again.09.10 Hours - Vast Ice and snow below, note coloration of yellowish nature, and disperse in a linear pattern. Altering course for a better examination of this color pattern below, note reddish or purple color also. Circle this area two full turns and return to assigned compass heading. Position check made again to Base Camp, and relay information concerning colorations in the Ice and snow below.09.10 Hours - Both Magnetic and Gyro compasses beginning to gyrate and wobble, we are unable to hold our heading by instrumentation. Take bearing with Sun compass, yet all seems well. The controls are seemingly slow to respond and have sluggish quality, but there is no indication of Icing!09.15 Hours - In the distance is what appears to be mountains.0949 Hours - 29 minutes elapsed flight time from the first sighting of the mountains, it is no illusion. They are mountains and consisting of a small range that I have never seen before!09.55 Hours - Altitude change to 2950 feet, encountering strong turbulence again.10.00 Hours - We are crossing over the small mountain range and still proceeding northward as best as can be ascertained. Beyond the mountain range is what appears to be a valley with a small river or stream running through the center portion. There should be no green valley below! Something is definitely wrong and abnormal here! We should be over Ice and Snow! To the portside are great forests growing on the mountain slopes. Our navigation Instruments are still spinning, the gyroscope is oscillating back and forth!10.05 Hours - I alter altitude to 1400 feet and execute a sharp left turn to better examine the valley below. It is green with either moss or a type of tight-knit grass. The Light here seems different. I cannot see the Sun anymore. We make another left turn and we spot what seems to be a large animal of some kind below us. It appears to be an elephant! NO!!! It looks more like a mammoth! This is incredible! Yet, there it is! Decrease altitude to 1000 feet and take binoculars to better examine the animal. It is confirmed - it is definitely a mammoth-like animal! Report this to Base Camp.10.30 Hours - Encountering more rolling green hills now. The external temperature indicator reads 74 degrees Fahrenheit! Continuing on our heading now. Navigation instruments seem normal now. I am puzzled over their actions. Attempt to contact Base Camp. Radio is not functioning!11.30 Hours - Countryside below is more level and normal (if I may use that word). Ahead we spot what seems to be a city!!!! This is impossible! Aircraft seems light and oddly buoyant. The controls refuse to respond!! My GOD!!! Off our port and starboard wings are a strange type of aircraft. They are closing rapidly alongside! They are disc-shaped and have a radiant quality to them.They are close enough now to see the markings on them. It is a type of Swastika!!! This is fantastic. Where are we! What has happened. I tug at the controls again. They will not respond!!!! We are caught in an invisible vice grip of some type!11.35 Hours - Our radio crackles and a voice comes through in English with what perhaps is a slight Nordic or Germanic accent! The message is: 'Welcome, Admiral, to our Domain. We shall land you in exactly seven minutes! Relax, Admiral, you are in good hands.' I note the engines of our plane have stopped running! The aircraft is under some strange control and is now turning itself. The controls are useless.11.40 Hours - Another radio message received. We begin the landing process now, and in moments the plane shudders slightly, and begins a descent as though caught in some great unseen elevator! The downward motion is negligible, and we touch down with only a slight jolt!11.45 Hours - I am making a hasty last entry in the Flight Log. Several men are approaching on foot toward our aircraft. They are tall with blond hair. In the distance is a large shimmering city pulsating with rainbow hues of color. I do not know what is going to happen now, but I see no signs of weapons on those approaching. I hear now a voice ordering me by name to open the cargo door. I comply.End LogAdmiral Richard B.

The Hollow Earth hypothesis proposes that the planet Earth is either entirely hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. The hypothesis has been shown to be wrong by 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 concept of a hollow Earth still recurs in folklore and as the premise for subterranean fiction, a subgenre of adventure fiction. It is also featured in some present-daypseudoscientific and conspiracy theories.
In ancient times, the idea of subterranean realms seemed arguable, and became intertwined with the concept of "places" such as the Greek underworld, the Nordic Svartálfaheimr, the Christian Hell, and the Jewish Sheol (with details describing inner Earth in Kabalistic literature, such as the Zohar and Hesed L'Avraham). The idea of a subterranean realm is also mentioned in Tibetan Buddhism belief, according to one story there is an ancient city called Shamballa which is located inside the earth.
The concept of a subterranean land inside the earth is popular in mythology, folklore and legends in ancient times.
According to the Ancient Greeks there were caverns under the surface which were entrances leading to the underworld, some of which were the caverns at Tainaron in Lakonia, at Trozien in Argolis, at Ephya in Thesprotia, at Herakleia in Pontos, and in Ermioni. In Thracians and Dacians legend it is said that there are underground chambers occupied by an ancient God called Zalmoxis. In Mesopotamian religion there is a story of a man who, after traveling through the darkness of a tunnel in the mountain of "Mashu", entered a subterranean garden.
Chapel, bell tower and penitential beds onStation Island. The bell tower stands on a mound that is the site of the original cave which according to various myths is an entrance which leads inside the earth to a place of purgatory. The cave has been closed since
October 25, 1632.
In Celtic mythology there is a legend of a cave called "Cruachan," also known as "
's gate to Hell," a
legendary and ancient cave from which according to legend strange creatures
would emerge in ancient times and be seen on the surface of the earth. There
are also stories of medieval knights and saints who
went on pilgrimages to
a cave located in Station Island, County Donegal in Ireland, where they made journeys
inside the earth into a place of purgatory. There
is an Irish myth which says tunnels in County Down, Northern Ireland lead to the land
of the subterranean Tuatha de Danaan, a group of people who are
believed to have introduced Druidism to
Ireland, and then went back underground. Ireland
An ancient legend of the Angami Naga tribes of India claim that their ancestors emerged in ancient times from a subterranean land inside the earth. There are legends from the Taíno people that their ancestors emerged in ancient times from two caves in a mountain underground.
It is the belief of the natives of the Malinowski's Trobriand Islands that their ancestors had come from a subterranean land through a cavern hole called "Obukula". There is an ancient legend held in Mexican folklore that a cave in a mountain five miles south ofOjinaga, Mexico is possessed by devilish creatures who came from inside the earth.
There was an ancient myth held in the middle ages that some mountains located between Eisenach and Gotha in
hold a portal to the
inner earth. There is an old Russian legend that says the Samoyeds, an ancient Siberian tribe,
traveled to an underground cavern city to live inside the earth. Germany
In Native American mythology, it is said that the ancestors of the Mandan people in ancient times emerged from a subterranean land through a cave at the north side of the Missouri River. There is also a tale about a tunnel in the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona near Cedar Creek[disambiguation needed] which is said to lead inside the earth to a land inhabited by a mysterious tribe. It is also the belief of the tribes of Iroquois that their ancient ancestors emerged from a subterranean world inside the earth. The elders of the Hopi people believe that a Sipapu entrance in the Grand Canyon exists which leads to the underworld.
According to South American mythology the belief of the Brazilian Indians, who live alongside the Parima River in Brazil, claim that their forefathers emerged in ancient times from an underground land, and that many of their ancestors still remained inside the earth. There are also legends that say the ancestors of the Inca Empire came from underground caves which are located east of Cuzco,
17th and 18th centuries
Edmond Halley's hypothesis.
Edmond Halley in 1692 put forth the idea of Earth consisting of a hollow shell about 800 km (500 mi) thick, two inner concentric shells and an innermost core, about the diameters of the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Atmospheres separate these shells, and each shell has its own magnetic poles. The spheres rotate at different speeds. Halley proposed this scheme in order to explain anomalous compass readings. He envisaged the atmosphere inside as luminous (and possibly inhabited) and speculated that escaping gas caused the Aurora Borealis.
De Camp and Ley have claimed (in their Lands Beyond) that Leonhard Euler also proposed a hollow-Earth idea, getting rid of multiple shells and postulating an interior sun 1,000 km (620 mi) across to provide light to advanced inner-Earth civilization but they provide no references; indeed, Euler did not propose a hollow-Earth, but there is a slightly related thought experiment.
De Camp and Ley also claim that Sir John Leslie expanded on Euler's idea, suggesting two central suns named Pluto and Proserpine (this was unrelated to the dwarf planet Pluto, which was discovered and named some time later). Leslie did propose a hollow Earth in his 1829 Elements of Natural Philosophy (pp. 449–453), but does not mention interior suns.
Le Clerc Milfort in 1781 led a journey with hundreds of Creek Indians to a series of caverns near the Red River above the junction of the Mississippi river, according to Milfort the original Creek Indian ancestors are believed to have emerged out to the surface of the earth in ancient times from the caverns. Milfort also claimed the caverns they saw "could easily contain 15,000 – 20,000 families."
In 1818, John Cleves Symmes, Jr. suggested that the Earth consisted of a hollow shell about 1,300 km (810 mi) thick, with openings about 2,300 km (1,400 mi) across at bothpoles with 4 inner shells each open at the poles. Symmes became the most famous of the early Hollow Earth proponents. He proposed making an expedition to the North Polehole, thanks to efforts of one of his followers, James McBride.
president John Quincy Adams indicated he would approve of this but
he left office before this could occur. The new President of the United States , Andrew Jackson, halted the attempt. It is
possible this is the source of the (untrue) legend that United States believed in a Flat Earth, and was consequently the only Jackson president to do so. United States
Jeremiah Reynolds also delivered lectures on the "Hollow Earth" and argued for an expedition. Reynolds went on an expedition to
Antarctica himself but missed joining the Great U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838–1842, even though that venture
was a result of his agitation.
Though Symmes himself never wrote a book about his ideas, several authors published works discussing his ideas. McBride wrote Symmes' Theory of Concentric Spheres in 1826. It appears that Reynolds has an article that appeared as a separate booklet in 1827: Remarks of Symmes' Theory Which Appeared in the American Quarterly Review. In 1868, a professor W.F. Lyons published The Hollow Globe which put forth a Symmes-like Hollow Earth hypothesis, but failed to mention Symmes himself. Symmes's son
then published The Symmes' Theory of Concentric
Spheres in 1878 to set the
record straight. Americus
The Nazi era Thule Society reported much about Tibetan myths of openings into the Earth. There is even a theory that Hitler ordered a research journey for such an opening in Antarctica, based on a speech of Admiral Dönitz in front of a German u-boat in 1944, when he claimed "The German submarine fleet is proud of having built an invisible fortification for the Führer, anywhere in the world." During the Nuremberg Trials, Dönitz spoke of "an invisible fortification, in midst of the eternal ice."
An early twentieth-century proponent of hollow Earth, William Reed, wrote Phantom of the Poles in 1906. He supported the idea of a hollow Earth, but without interior shells or inner sun.
The spiritualist writer Walburga, Lady Paget in her book Colloquies with an unseen friend (1907) was an early writer to mention the hollow earth theory. She claimed that cities exist beneath a desert, which is where the people of Atlantis moved. She said an entrance to the subterranean kingdom will be discovered in the 21st century.
William Fairfield Warren, in his book, Paradise Found: The Cradle of the Human Race at the North Pole presented his belief that humanity originated on a continent in the
Arctic called Hyperborea. This influenced some early hollow
earth theorists. According to Marshall Gardner, both the Eskimo and Mongolian peoples had come from the interior of the
earth by an entrance at the North pole.
Marshall Gardner wrote A Journey to the Earth's Interior in 1913 and published an expanded edition in 1920. He placed an interior sun in the Earth and built a working model of the hollow Earth which patented (U.S. Patent 1,096,102).
made no mention of
Reed, but did criticize Symmes for his ideas. About the same time Vladimir Obruchev wrote a novel Plutonia, in which the hollow
Earth possessed an inner sun and was inhabited by prehistoric species. The
interior was connected with the surface by an opening in the Arctic. Gardner
Explorer Ferdynand Ossendowski wrote a book in 1922 titled Beasts, Men and Gods. Ossendowski said he was told about a subterranean kingdom exists inside the earth. It was known to Buddhists as Agharti.
George Papashvily in his Anything Can Happen (1940) claimed the discovery in the Caucasus mountains of a caver 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.
Other in the 20th century proposed that "ascended masters" of esoteric wisdom inhabit subterranean caves or a hollow Earth. Antarctica, the North Pole, Tibet, Peru, and Mount Shasta in California, USA, have all had their advocates as the locations of entrances to a subterranean realm referred to as Agartha, with some even advancing the hypothesis thatUFOs have their homeland in these places.
Novelist Lobsang Rampa in his book The Cave of the Ancients saaid an underground chamber system exists beneath the Himalayas of Tibet, filled with ancient machinery, recordsand treasure. Michael Grumley a cryptozoologist has linked Bigfoot and other hominid cryptids to ancient tunnel systems underground.
Douglas Baker wrote in one of his books that he had an astral journey to the inner earth where he observed a subterranean civilization. Other occult writers such as Guy Ballardand Alice Bailey have written that they have had out of body experiences and met mysterious beings inside of the earth.
According to the ancient astronaut writer Peter Kolosimo a robot was seen entering a subterranean tunnel below a monastery in Mongolia, he also claimed a light was seen from underground in Azerbaijan. Kolosimo and other ancient astronaut writers such as Robert Charroux linked these activities to UFOs.
A book allegedly by a "Dr. Raymond Bernard" which appeared in 1964, The Hollow Earth, exemplifies the idea of UFOs coming from inside the earth. The book rehashes Reed and
's ideas and ignores
Symmes. Bernard also adds his own ideas: the Ring Nebula proves
the existence of hollow worlds, as well as speculation on the fate of Atlantis and
the origin of flying saucers. Bernard argued that the inhabitants of Atlantis
took refuge in the Earth's interior before the city was destroyed in great
was Atlanteans who piloted the flying machines known in ancient Gardner as vimanas and in the
modern world as flying saucers. After
the India bombings of US and Hiroshima , Bernard claimed, the
Atlanteans became concerned that radioactive air might flow into the world's
interior, and so some emerged in their flying saucers in an act of
article by Martin Gardner revealed that Dr.Walter Siegmeister
used the pseudonym `Bernard', but not until the publishing of Walter
Worlds: 100,000 years of dragons, dwarves, the dead, lost races & UFOs from
inside the Earth, in 1989, did the full story of Bernard/Siegmeister become
well known. Nagasaki
The pages of the science fiction pulp magazine Amazing Stories promoted one such idea from 1945 to 1949 as "the Shaver Mystery". The magazine's editor, Ray Palmer, ran a series of stories by Richard Sharpe Shaver supposedly claimed as factual, though presented in the context of fiction. Shaver claimed that a superior pre-historic race had built ahoneycomb of caves in the Earth, and that their degenerate descendants, known as "Dero", live there still, using the fantastic machines abandoned by the ancient races to torment those of us living on the surface. As one characteristic of this torment, Shaver described "voices" that purportedly came from no explainable source. Thousands of readers wrote to affirm that they, too, had heard the fiendish voices from inside the Earth. The writer David Hatcher Childress authored Lost Continents and the Hollow Earth (1998) in which he reprinted the stories of Palmer and defended the hollow earth idea based on alleged tunnel systems beneath
South America and central Asia.
Hollow earth theorists have claimed a number of different locations for the entrances which lead inside the earth. Other than the North and South poles, entrances in locations which have been cited include: Paris in France, Staffordshire in England, Montreal in Canada, Hangchow in China, and the Amazon Rainforest.
Fantastic stories (supposedly believed as factual within fringe circles) have also circulated that Adolf Hitler and some of his followers escaped to hollow lands within the Earth after World War II via an entrance in
Antarctica. (See also Hitler's
supposed adherence to concave hollow-Earth ideas, below.)
Some writers have proposed building megastructures that have some similarities to a hollow Earth – see Dyson sphere, Globus Cassus.
In 2011, Horatio Valens and Paul Veneti presented a two-hour "Lazeria Map Collection" video on centuries-old maps of the Arctic region and the North Pole, making a case for a 100-mile wide canyon in the center of the physical North Pole, into which north-flowing rivers drain into a hollow Earth. The maps were collected by Harry Hubbard.
Concave hollow Earths
An example of a concave hollow Earth. Humans live on the interior, with the universe in the center.
Instead of saying that humans live on the outside surface of a hollow planet, sometimes called a "convex" hollow-Earth hypothesis, some have claimed that our universe itself lies in the interior of a hollow world, calling this a "concave" hollow-Earth hypothesis. The surface of the Earth, according to such a view, might resemble the interior shell of a sphere.
Purportedly verifiable hypotheses of a "concave hollow Earth" need to be distinguished from a thought experiment which defines a coordinatetransformation such that the interior of the Earth becomes "exterior" and the exterior becomes "interior". (For example, in spherical coordinates, let radius r go to R²/r where R is the Earth's radius.) The transformation entails corresponding changes to the forms of physical laws. This is not a hypothesis but an illustration of the fact that any description of the physical world can be equivalently expressed in more than one way.
Cyrus Teed, a doctor from upstate
, proposed such a
concave hollow Earth in 1869, calling his scheme "Cellular
Cosmogony". Teed founded a group called the Koreshan Unity based on this notion, which he called Koreshanity. The main colony survives as a
preserved New York state historic site, at Estero, Florida, but all of Teed's followers
have now died. Teed's followers claimed to have experimentally verified the
concavity of the Earth's curvature, through surveys of the Florida coastline making use of
"rectilineator" equipment. Florida
Several twentieth-century German writers, including Peter Bender, Johannes Lang, Karl Neupert, and Fritz Braun, published works advocating the hollow Earth hypothesis, or Hohlweltlehre. It has even been reported, although apparently without historical documentation, that Adolf Hitler was influenced by concave hollow-Earth ideas and sent an expedition in an unsuccessful attempt to spy on the British fleet by pointing infrared cameras up at the sky (Wagner, 1999).
The Egyptian mathematician Mostafa Abdelkader wrote several scholarly papers working out a detailed mapping of the concave Earth model.
In one chapter of his book On the Wild Side (1992), Martin Gardner discusses the hollow Earth model articulated by Abdelkader. According to
, this hypothesis posits
that light rays travel in circular paths, and slow as they approach the center
of the spherical star-filled cavern. No energy can reach the center of the
cavern, which corresponds to no point a finite distance away from Earth in the
widely accepted scientific cosmology. A drill, Gardner says, would lengthen as
it traveled away from the cavern and eventually pass through the "point at
infinity" corresponding to the center of the Earth in the widely accepted
scientific cosmology. Supposedly no experiment can distinguish between the two
