Caves ...

Speaking of cave systems-

"This part of Kentucky is the most remarkable portion of the known world,
and although now neglected, in a time to come is surely destined to an
extended distinction. I have referred only to the surface, the skin
formation of this honeycombed labyrinth, the entrance to the future
wonderland of the world. Portions of such a superficial cavern maze have
been traversed by man in the ramifications known as the Mammoth Cave, but
deeper than man has yet explored, the subcutaneous structure of that series
of caverns is yet to be investigated. The Mammoth Cave as now traversed is
simply a superficial series of grottoes and passages overlying the deeper
cavern field that I have described."

" There were also, in side caverns to which I was led, combinations of
sounds and scenes in which floating strains and
fleeting figures were interwoven and interlaced so closely that the senses
of both sight and hearing became blended into a single sense, new, weird,
strange, and inexpressible. As flavor is the combination of odor and taste,
and is neither taste nor odor, so these sounds and scenes combined were
neither scenes' nor sounds, but a complex sensation, new, delicious.
Sometimes I begged to be permitted to stop and live forever 'mid those
heavenly charms, but with as firm a hand as when helping me through the
chambers of mire, ooze, and creeping reptiles, my guide drew me onward.

" But to return to the subject. As to my guide being a cavern-bred
monstrosity, I do not remember to have said that he was cavern-bred, and if
I have forgotten a fact, I regret my short memory. Did I say that he was
always a cavern being. Did I assert that he had never lived among mortals of
upper earth? If so, I do not remember our conversation on that subject. He
was surely a sage in knowledge, as you have experienced from my feeble
efforts in explaining the nature of phenomena that were to you unknown, and
yet have been gained by me largely through his instruction. He was a
metaphysician, as you assert; you are surely right; he was a sincere,
earnest reasoner and teacher. He was a conscientious student, and did not by
any word lead me to feel that he did not respect all religions, and bow to
the Creator of the universe, its sciences, and its religions. His demeanor
was most considerate, his methods faultless, his love of nature deep, his
patience inexhaustible, his sincerity unimpeachable. " Yes," the old man
said; " you are right in your admiration of this lovely personage, and when
you come to meet this being as you are destined yet to do- for know now that
you too will some day pass from surface earth, and leave only your name in
connection with this story of myself- you will surely then form a still
greater love and a deeper respect for one so gifted, and yet so
self-sacrificing."

" Old man," I cried, " you mock me. I spoke facetiously, and you answer
literally. Know that I have no confidence in your sailor-like tales, your
Marco Polo history."

" Ah ! You discredit Marco Polo? And why do you doubt?"

" Because I have never seen such phenomena, I have never witnessed such
occurrences. I must see a thing to believe it."

" And so you believe only what you see?" he queried.

" Yes."

About cave entrances to worlds below-

There are also these comments by Roerich, by the guide he employed on
his
trip throughout Tibet.

" When we saw entrances of caves, our caravaneers told us, Long ago people lived there; now they have gone inside; they have found a subterranean passage to the subterranean kingdom. (emphasis added) Only rarely do some of them appear again on Earth. At our bazaar such people come with strange, very ancient money, but nobody could even remember a time when such money was in usage here.' I asked them, if we could see such people. And they answered, Yes, if your thoughts are similarly high and in contact
with
these holy people, because sinners are upon Earth and the pure and
courageous people pass on to something more beautiful."'

"'Great is the belief in the kingdom of the subterranean people.
Through all
of Asia, through the space of all deserts, from the Pacific to the
Urals,
you can hear the same wondrous tale of the vanished holy people. And
even
far beyond the Ural Mountains, the echo of the same tale will reach
you'"
(emphasis added).

See the introduction to Seven Days North of Tibet:

http://www.holloworbs.com/Seven_Days.htm

I think that these throughways were known previously, and that there
ws
traffic through them. Not anymore, and they are practically forgotten
by
surface people. Even the Tibetans are forgetting them, and the
underground city of Shamballa, in their collective memories.

There are very tight controls on cave exploration. Going into the Mammoth Caves network tours is very interesting in terms of seeing just how much control exists.

Hmmm...."very tight controls on cave exploration" ??!! @Soretna , there you have it - a solid clue of something being hidden :))

Regards

Take a look at these "STATE CAVE PROTECTION LAWS (State-by-State)" (Archive.org, Archive.is).

@Keith you may want to perhaps note especially page 16 for Kentucky in that document.

Additionally, note how most of these laws seem to spring up around the 1980s.

@Soretna , this is quite an eye popping document ! Under the clever garb of "protecting the environment" & safety of the explorers , they've essentially made it unlawful to explore caves beyond a certain limit .

There are no similar stringent laws against , sky diving , bungee jumping , Scuba diving , paragliding and other adventure sports that are equally , if not more risky than cave exploration .

I guess it depends on the location. Maybe they are hiding something. But other reasons include idiots wreaking the caves and litigation from other idiots who sue landowners or the state if they get hurt.

People,

The article's sub title:

It seems like fans of conspiracy theories have received a new topic to discuss. Viewers have already suggested that the structure could be an entrance to “hollow earth” or a “military cover-up".

If we are going to speak of caves and the underground dwellings of underground creatures, how can we forget Beowulf? We can't!

"Hrothgar, Beowulf, and their men track Grendel's mother to her lair under a lake. ... Beowulf jumps into the lake, and while harassed by water monsters gets to the bottom, where he finds a cavern. Grendel's mother pulls him in, and she and Beowulf engage in fierce combat."

”History of Cave Science, the Exploration and Study of Caves, to 1900"
by Trevor R. Shaw, Sydney Speleological Society, 1992

BUCHNER'S ACCOUNT OF THE BREITENWINNER CAVE IN 1535

REMARKABLE TIDINGS from the day of St. Peter and St. Paul in the
year 35!
Twenty-five citizens of the town of Amberg set off to a mountainous
area three
miles distant from Amberg. Near the village of Predenwind they went
into a
huge hollow mountain, about 900 Klafter [1700 m] deep, and walked
through to
the other side. The marvels they saw there have been written down by
Berthold
Buchner. The ignorant will not believe this story, the experienced
ones will not
think it possible. But we have seen it with our own eyes, and it is
the truth. - 1535

In the evening on the day of St. Peter and St. Paul the
abovementioned 25 men set off from
Amberg with a cart with ladders, materials for making fire,
stone-breaking tools, ropes, wine, bread,
and other items useful for such an undertaking. They went to the
market place of Hohenburg and
stayed overnight. Next day they started very early and at 5 am they
met at the entrance of the huge
mountain, and debated. Two of us were appointed leaders to whom we
others promised obedience,
etc. Then we got ready to go into the hole which is so wide that one
could turn a wagon of hay in it.
Each of us had to carry something: a piece of rope, a light,
lantems, pickaxe, wine, bread, etc. And
we sang cheerfully 'We are travelling in the name of God!'
One of the leaders went in first, the other leader brought up
the rear. He secured the entrance
with rope and marked it with signs to avert danger, because if we
should lose track of the ropes it would
have been impossible for us to get out again. After fastening the
ropes to a rock we descended 500
Klafter [950 m] deep. Four honest strong men were selected to keep
watch at the mouth of the
mountain cave. Very soon we arrived at a very narrow cleft. One of
our companions, a goldsmith,
who at home had desired to be the first one in the cave, was so
frightened by the sight of it that he
deserted us notwithstanding his promise. But we crept on our
stomachs some fifty Klafter [95 m]
through this narrow cleft. There was a wider opening next to it but
it did not stretch very far. First
of all we came upon a wide space like a hall for dancing. When we
crept in we found so many bones
that the first of us had to pile them up in one place to make room
for us to enter. The bones were very
large as if from giants.
We then reached a very narrow hole and had to squeeze through
on our stomachs. At 200
Klafter [380 m] one comes into what seems like a beautiful spacious
palace big enough to hold about
100 horses. It is lined at the top very handsomely with 'grown'
stones [speleothems]. There are eight
or ten 'grown' pillars and good seats at the sides. Here we found
two skulls which to our surprise were
enclosed by the rock, we could hardly hack them out with our tools.
Each person took a piece, one
the cranium, one the teeth, etc. There were many passages here and
everywhere in the mountain;
some of them we explored. All the caves and passages were full of
big bones. We searched for about
an hour for a hole leading further in. At last our leader found one
and we all followed him. The other
tunnels met now and then in the mountain. We were still amazed by
the sight of this palace.
After 150 Klafters [285 m] we came across a very narrow cave
and we had difficulty in
squeezing in. There we heard a strange roaring, crackling and
rustling, and more than one of us
wished he had stayed at home with his wife. Suddenly the cave
widened so that we could walk side
by side. We took counsel and decided to go on and find oat what
these wild sounds were. Our leader
went in front again, we following. We arrived at another wide space
which we examined carefully.
It looked like a chapterhouse, with pews on one wall and a gallery
overhead. It was difficult to get
up there and I stayed down below. In all the caves we found many
bones. We came to a narrow vault
where we found a skull bigger than we had ever seen before. When we
tried to squeeze it through
the narrow opening it crumbled like ashes. Through a narrow entrance
we got down further, about
200 Klafter [380 m] . There was more and more roaring and rustling
till we came upon a fairly wide
opening where an enormous waterfall was rushing down between two
rocks with such a force it would
have been sufficient to turn two mill wheels. The stream ran
downwards over the opening. we were
curious to know where this stream came from or find its spring, as
it was so icy cold, but we could
not follow it. Our leader got stuck there in a cave; he had to be
pulled out otherwise he would have
died. The same happened to me, and I felt very weak afterwards and
the apothecary gave me a
restorative.
Adjoining this wide cave was a handsome triangular vault.
There we found a stone sculpture.
It resembled a deity seated on a throne with a straw wreath on its
head. The straw was black and very
brittle. I and some others took some straw home.
We found another stone sculpture hanging from a high wall. We
left a light bunting in front
of it. At 200 Klafter [380 m] we found loose soil with a great many
bones.
We crept and walked on following the rope, and at 250 Klafter
[475 m] we came to a most
wonderful palace and tabernacle. On the other side, between the
south and west point, we found a
fountain with four stone ,pillars round it, and there seem to have
been seats there at one time. The
fountain was very cold. We hung our winebottles in it and the wine
was soon cooled.
While we refreshed ourselves at the fountain we heard a loud
noise in the cliff where the stream
ends. Our leader was bold enough to climb in but got stuck and
became drenched. When we came
to his rescue with fights, one of us, called Burckstaller, was
struck on the head, it could have damaged
one eye. We thought a female figure had been the thrower.
Burckstaller was very superstitious, so
perhaps it was a ghost. We did not see anything else.
It was very strange that the dripping water, which falls into
this mountain in 60 places, freezes
into a very hard even rock and into translucid stone. From some
caves white salt-like stuff trickles
out, it looks like glass and we took it to be saltpetre. In a cliff
of the rock one of our companions found
a strong grey curly hair which he assumed was from a beard. All of
us were curious to fred out more
about the 'ghost' and would have faced further adventures and
dangers. But we lost the passages and
caves where we saw the' ghost' and were forced to climb to the
surface with the rope and soon reached
daylight again. Just then a cuirasslet with two horses passed the
entrance of the cave and we called
to him to come in. But on seeing us he rode away hurriedly. We all
looked discoloured and were
terrified at each other' s appearance. We looked like corpses and
startled the guards at the entrance.
But thanks to God, nobody was hurt. Praise be to God now and for
ever. Amen.
This has been written down by Berthold Buchner, who took
part, and is attested by the Treasurer
of Areberg.

Ubajara? The Tunnel of the Phoenicians in Brazil

http://www.holloworbs.com/Ubajara.htm

List Members,

Here is something very interesting about a tunnel complex below Lexington, Kentucky. It is from the David Hatcher Childress book Lost Cities of North and Central America, Pages 390 – 391. (If he or someone else that he knows has found them, how can they be lost?) Anyway, here it is …

“Jim Brandon, author of Weird America, says that a sizable complex of tunnels is supposed to lie somewhere beneath Lexington, Kentucky. According to Brandon, ‘G.W, Rankck relates in his 1872 History of Lexington that hunters from the pioneer settlement of Boonesborough in 1776 discovered rocks of peculiar workmanship with a tunnel behind them. Small at first, this portal eventually expanded into a sort of gallery, four foot wide and seven high that inclined sharply down into the rock. After a few hundred feet, the ramp led to a 300 foot long, 100 foot long chamber, and 18 feet high. Inside this lay idols, altars, and about 2,000 human mummies”.

“According to the legend, these catacombs were subsequently explored a number of times. In 1806, they were visited by Thomas Ashe, the Irish Travel writer. Eventually, the story goes, the entrance was lost as the city grew overhead …”

List Members,

We cannot inform ourselves and acquire background merely by reading snippets from the internet and viewing short videos. It is important to build up a library of hollow earth, inner worlds books, and absorb the research and findings of others.

Buy some books of the hollow earth and cavern worlds!

can be translated using http://translator.dictionary.com/url.html and

with this interesting translation: "On the southern Frankenalb in Bavaria
there is an unusual cave, around which it became very quiet since the Second
World War. It is situated in the midst of the troop exercise area high rock
and is almost not not accessible therefore" "Only at very rare opportunities
that could be done, z:B. on the occasion of the federation conference of the
Germans excavate and Karstfor into Velburg 1976." I found this story in
History of Cave Science; The Exploration and Study of Limestone Caves, to

Society, 1992. The call letters, here in the University of Arizona Library
are: "GB 601 A4 S54 1992 Science" (Science Library) It is interesting that
this cave appears to be almost "off limits" in a military training area.....
