They say that knowledge is power or to paraphrase George Orwell: whoever controls the past controls the future, whilst those who control the present control the past. So it naturally follows that whoever holds the reins of power is likely to have a vested interest in the way we perceive our past; which may explain the media’s reticence concerning the Yonguni underwater ruins off the coast of Okinawa, Japan. Through research funding, scholarships and endowments Big Money and the Powers That Be effectively shape our view of the past but the ruins at Yonguni have the potential to change that. In fact they could transform and maybe even revolutionise the way we see our past.
Apart from such mavericks as Graham Hancock and Ancient American magazine, the Western media and academia have seemed somewhat reluctant to pronounce on what is undoubtedly one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the last hundred years. First discovered in March, 1995, the preliminary sightings were uncertain; a squared structure was found by divers but it was so encrusted with coral that it was initially thought to be a natural feature. Then, in the summer of 1996, a sports diver accidentally discovered another angular platform about 40 feet below the surface, off the southwestern shore of Okinawa. Its artificial origins were beyond question but this was more than one isolated structure. Other divers joined in the search and soon another monument was discovered nearby; then another, and another. Along with what appeared to be long streets, boulevards, staircases, archways and enormous blocks of perfectly cut and fitted stone – all welded together in an architecture the like of which had never been seen before.
The centrepiece is a huge stone ziggurat over 90 feet high and 600 feet wide which, according to Professor Kimura from the University of Okinawa, is most probably man made. “The object has not been manufactured by nature,” says the geology Professor: “If that had been the case, one would expect debris from erosion to have collected around the site, but there are no rock fragments there” According to Professor Kimura the discovery of what appears to be a road surrounding the building was further evidence that it was man made.
In all the Yonguni underwater ruins are said to cover an area that stretches across 300 miles; a discovery of considerable significance that has been greeted by Western academia and its archaeological authorities with almost unanimous silence. But then these bodies rely on financial support which invariably comes from the likes of the Carnagie Foundation and others of a similar ilk; in effect these bodies are financed by Big Money to investigate and pronounce on our past … or at least the official version.
All of which provides some useful perspective on the strange fossilised rock formations found at Jennings Randolph Lake in Mineral County, West Virginia. Pictured below, these formations have been dated to around 300 million years BC and pronounced as a ‘natural formation’ by the relevant authorities. But take a look and ask yourself: does this look like a natural formation? Like the fossilised shoe print found by engineer and geologist John T. Reid in Nevada, (Worlds Before Our Own 2), these patterns look distinctly as if they were manmade. Yet the various authorities that adjudicate over our past have judged them to be ‘natural’; or like the fossilised shoeprints found by Reid and dated at 248 million years BC, alternatively pronounced as a bizarre ‘freak of nature.’
It seems that these august bodies will accept any sort of explanation rather than upset the orthodox chronology of humanity’s past; but then it may be their financiers who are ultimately calling the shots.
However these anomalies may not only concern our past, they may indeed have relevance to our future too. Various tribal traditions amongst Native North American’s tell of the coming of a time of great confusion and calamity; during this time the Earth itself would fall sick: the forests would be blighted and the fish would die in the waters of poisoned streams.
The North American Hopi say we are now living in this time that they call “the end of the fourth world.” The first two worlds were destroyed through fire and floods; the third world was destroyed in a universal deluge while the fate of this world now hangs in the balance. The first three worlds had been destroyed after they became over-populated and air travel and the construction of great cities, amongst other things, made people forget the Creator. According to the Hopi elders: “More and more of the people became wholly occupied with their own earthly plans…man had everything he needed but wanted more…man kept trading for things he didn’t need and the more goods he got the more he wanted.” (Sound familiar? Ed.)
In the course of time more cities were built and various peoples went to war with each other, sometimes even using aircraft to attack each other. “So,” say the Hopi elders, “corruption and war came to the third world as it had done to the others.”
We are now seeing the same process repeat itself and in response the “Warriors of the Rainbow” are destined to appear; they will not be able to stop the impending changes but in the words of Lee Brown at the 1986 Continental Indigenous Council in Fairbanks, Alaska, they would “cushion it.” In other words they will reduce the overall impact and avert total destruction.
According to various traditions the “Warriors of the Rainbow” would be needed to restore mankind and the Earth itself to health; to help accomplish this they would teach the respect for nature that had once been an integral part of many ancient cultures, including Native American. In the process they would encounter mountains of ignorance but along the way they would also find willing hearts and minds to help them. Naturally you may object that this all remains to be seen. However this writer feels that that we will see all this come to pass in the next 10 to 15 years and more importantly we will see how successful the Warriors of the Rainbow have been in their quest.
