1.4 – The Mission (5.4.10)

TOOLS OR TRIGGERS [5h]

Belize, Central America. In 1924, British adventurer, Frederick Mitchell-Hedges traveled here with his daughter, Anna, to explore the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Lubaantun. One afternoon, Anna climbed to the top of a crumbling pyramid, hoping to see the ocean.

“It was high noon and she was at the top, and the way the sun came in, the way the rocks had moved in that there was just a small opening and the light from the sun went through and it hit the top of the skull, and she ran down and she’s all excited. She said, ‘There’s someone in there with a flashlight.’”

Bill Homann (Caretaker, Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull)

Anna’s father and others in their party were too large to fit inside the small opening of the pyramid, so they tied a rope around Anna and lowered her into the hole. When she came back up, Anna held the top of a strange crystal skull. A second search uncovered a matching jaw. The two-piece skull weighed 11 pounds, seven ounces, and appeared to be carved from a single piece of rock crystal.

“It’s the only crystal skull which is almost perfectly humanoid. It’s the only crystal skull which has a detachable jaw, and when I say ‘almost perfectly humanoid,’ the one thing which is missing is the sutures on the cranium. It has a perfect cranium. So, it almost suggests that, even though it’s a human crystal skull, those who were carving it somehow felt that this creature was not born. It somehow came into this world perfectly.”

The skull’s appearance created an immediate sensation among the local tribesman.

“When the natives saw it, it was like their god had returned. They all started crying and kissing the Earth and everything. They were just so excited, and Mitchell-Hedges seeing this, he presented it to the high priest and they put it in an altar, and for 24 hours a day they burned flames around the crystal skull.”

Bill Homann (Caretaker, Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull)

The Mayan elders believed that, in ancient times, 13 crystal skulls were buried in secret places around the world. Currently it is claimed that seven have been found. Four are in private collections and one each in the British Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Quai Branly Museum in Paris. All have been the focus of intense examination, speculation, and even worship.

“A lot of natives and a lot of people working with crystal skulls say that the high quartz content skulls and especially the quartz skulls themselves is the highest frequency or energy or vibration possible on the physical plane, and so a lot of native people kind of worshipped or took care of these objects because they knew that they had or felt that they had the highest energy possible on the Earth plane.”

(Caretaker & Guardian of the ‘Synergy’ Crystal Skull)

But what are the exact origins of these mysterious crystal skulls? Since their discovery, scientific tests have determined that the two owned by the British Museum and the Quai Branly were not authentic pre-Columbian artifacts. Could it be that the Mitchell-Hedges skull was also a fake? In the 1960s it underwent extensive testing by art curator Frank Dorland and the Hewlett-Packard Company.

“They used the most advanced stuff that they had. They could not find any marks on it except for around the jaw and, I think, a little bit around the eyes – the only place they saw tool marks using their techniques. At the time, Hewlett-Packard found that the temperature always stays about the same temperature, no matter if it’s in hot or cold. It was carved against the lines of the crystal. If anybody tried to do that, it would break into a thousand pieces. It’s made out of a high level of electronic crystal, and they’re not really sure exactly where it came from.”

Bill Homann (Caretaker, Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull)

“If you listen to the academics, crystal skulls are all modern fabrications, meaning somebody has gone on there with a wheel and has carved them as such, and this is where the big divide is between established academics and alternative researchers like myself, who feel that the academics are not using all the available evidence to draw their conclusions, and, in short, we believe that the academics are wrong in their conclusions.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Are these skulls really ancient artifacts? And, if not, who or what carved them?

“Crystal skulls, according to certain stories, yes, they are alien artifacts. Even some people think they’re made on another planet.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“I think there are links between crystal skulls and extraterrestrials, not necessarily that they were carved and created by extraterrestrials. I’ve been told they were created by humans, but they were created specifically to hold records from alien civilizations.”

– Sherry Whitfield (Author),
(Caretaker & Guardian of the ‘Synergy’ Crystal Skull)

Could there actually be some type of coded information stored inside these skulls? And if there is, how could it be retrieved?

“There is a legend that there were 13 skulls and that when the 13 skulls come together, then something significant will change in the world.”

– Sherry Whitfield (Author),
(Caretaker & Guardian of the ‘Synergy’ Crystal Skull)

“Legends suggest that there are 12 additional worlds out there, planets which are inhabited by intelligent species. Now, we belong to those worlds or to those planets, and our planet Earth is called, ‘Planet of the Children.’ They also suggest that these 13 crystal skulls that allegedly exist on planet Earth were each brought here from one of those 12 planets…and the 13th skull is the one that apparently contains all of the information of all those 12 different worlds.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Within each crystal skull, information is stored, and in fact IBM has shown that, too, that quartz crystal can store millions of gigabytes of information, and, in fact, any quartz crystal or a crystal skull could hold much more information that any computer we have now. So, when these crystal skulls would be brought together, they begin to interface with each other…and ultimately a greater knowledge and information is condensed and brought to us, and that’s the legend of the crystal skulls.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But as Ancient Astronaut Theorists maintain, why would visiting aliens have given the crystal skull to the Maya? To what purpose?

“The skull is a very important motif for the Mayans. When you look around the Mayan monuments, you see skulls carved pretty much everywhere. They use it for some of the notations for calendars.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

And it is the Mayan calendar that many people refer to when discussing the possibility of a new Armageddon. Are the skulls somehow linked to this? The current keeper of the Mitchell-Hedges skull believes they are.

“We’ve got 2012 just a few years away. All these different things are happening, the wars, et cetera, and I think the skulls are coming forward to do what they were made to do.”

Bill Homann (Caretaker, Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull)

But are these skulls the trigger that will begin the dawn of a new era? Or will they simply be used as a tool by some form of extraterrestrial intelligence to guide mankind to its next stage of evolution? If so, is this intelligence waiting and watching for the right moment? And from where exactly could it be watching us?
