2.1 – MYSTERIOUS PLACES (10.28.10)

ZONE OF SILENCE [2c]

400 miles south of El Paso, Texas, in Northern Mexico, stretches a remote and rugged section of high desert. This area, near the town of Ceballos, is referred to by the locals, as the Zona del Silencio, or the Zone of Silence. It’s an epicenter for some of the strangest phenomena ever experienced on Earth.

“Nothing works there. If you go there with your cell phone, the cell phone stops. If you go with a radio, it stops. If you go there with a compass, the needle just keeps spinning.”

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

“It’s completely bizarre. There’s strange rocks everywhere. You have strange mutated animals living in the desert in this area. You feel a strange tingling when you’re there.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

The Zone of Silence was first identified in the 1930s by Francisco Sarabia, a Mexican pilot, who claimed that his radio had mysteriously failed to function while flying over the area.

“They call it Mexico’s Bermuda Triangle. It’s located practically on the same parallel – the 28th and 26th parallel – and as a result of that, it goes and connects with the Egyptian pyramids. So, around that whole sector, there seems to be some connection between the anomalies that occur through these different parts of the world.”

Ruben Uriarte (Co-Author, Mexico’s Roswell: The Chihuahua UFO Crash)

“As a scientist, you’re trained to be skeptical, or maybe you were born that way. But we really don’t believe anything. You know, nothing is proven until you actually have evidence. But I can say that Earth’s magnetic field does vary across the surface by up to a few percent.”

Sara Seager, Ph.D. (Professor of Planetary Sciences, MIT)

One of the strangest cases involving the Zone of Silence took place on July 11, 1970, when the U.S. Air Force launched an Athena missile from its military facility in Green River, Utah. This missile was programmed to land 700 miles away at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. But for some unexplained reason, the Athena missile flew hundreds of miles past the White Sands Range towards the Zone of Silence.

“Not only did it go off course, it way overshot, as if it had been picked up, or yanked, or dragged, or pulled into it. There was a NASA spokesman who even said it was weird. It was like the thing just got pulled into this area. And it ended up crashing there and breaking up into bits.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

But some claim this missile is not the only thing that’s been mysteriously pulled into the Zone of Silence. Ancient Alien Theorists believe an unusually large number of meteorites have crashed here.

“The evidence seems to be indicating that the Zone of Silence is some powerful energy vortex area that’s literally sucking meteorites and other space debris right into this small area of northern Mexico.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“There’s a high level of magnetism in the area. That’s been proven by science. We know there’s a magnetic signature to the entire area. Is it strong enough to attract large objects like meteorites? I think we need more research. But I don’t think that research is being done right now.”

(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

Starting 3,000 years ago, the Anasazi Culture inhabited the region to the North, in today’s American Southwest. Anasazi means, “Ancient Ones,” and they paid great attention to the stars. Scientists have determined that, in 1054 AD, a supernova explosion was visible from Earth. Many believe the first known drawing of this event was found inside an Anasazi cave dwelling. South of the Zone of Silence, other cultures, including the Maya, also reportedly possessed a surprisingly detailed knowledge of similar celestial events. Is it possible that both of these cultures were somehow exchanging information?

“They’re separated by thousands of miles, but both the Anasazi of the North, and the Mesoamericans of the South, found the Zone of Silence and used it as a meeting place between their two cultures. You could imagine if you studied the stars at night and plotted the constellations, obviously, one of the things you’re going to see are these meteorites streaking across the sky. If your answers come from the sky, you probably would follow those streaking meteorites and find out where they end up. And the theory is that they may have found what they were looking for in the Zone of Silence.”

– Logan Hawkes (Publisher, The Mexico Less Traveled),
(Author/Producer, Ancient Mysteries of the Americas),
(Author, Close Encounters of the Old West),
(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

But what other connections exist between these cultures? And are they of a celestial origin?

“If we look back, into the ancient beliefs of the Anasazi and the Mesoamericans to the South, we know that there was great belief in Sky People; visitors from the sky. If these visitors came from the sky, who were they?

– Logan Hawkes (Publisher, The Mexico Less Traveled),
(Author/Producer, Ancient Mysteries of the Americas),
(Author, Close Encounters of the Old West),
(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

“And there’s a similarity to the beings being reported as tall, pale-skinned, white hair, which is not indigenous to the dark skinned, dark-haired people found in that region, but does match many of the South American descriptions of their gods.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

According to legend, these so-called “Visitors from the Sky” made themselves known to an ancient people. Is it possible that they are still making themselves known today?

“There are a number of reports of UFOs in the Zone of Silence.”

Ruben Uriarte (Co-Author, Mexico’s Roswell: The Chihuahua UFO Crash)

“Probably the most prominent and most popular report came out of the town Ceballos. It was on a late summer afternoon when a number of townspeople saw an object hovering in the sky on the outskirts of town. They described it as being about 100 meters wide. It had multicolored lights flashing. It wasn’t doing anything. It was just hovering in the desert. After awhile, it simply took off and headed out into the Zone of Silence.”

– Logan Hawkes (Publisher, The Mexico Less Traveled),
(Author/Producer, Ancient Mysteries of the Americas),
(Author, Close Encounters of the Old West),
(Ancient Aliens of the Americas)

“I think, too, that, as what’s going on today – the high activity UFO sightings, the anomalous reports that are still going on today – perhaps, there is a connection. Maybe it’s a vortex, maybe it’s a dimensional port. We can’t explain it, but something unusual is going on in that area.”

Ruben Uriarte (Co-Author, Mexico’s Roswell: The Chihuahua UFO Crash)

Might extraterrestrials be able to detect these magnetic differences? Would they have been any use to ancient visitors?

“If I was an alien coming here 10,000 years ago, obviously, there weren’t any roadmaps at the time. However, I could use the anomalous magnetic spots on Planet Earth as signposts of sorts. And so, that when I come back, those signposts would be my guides to find my way around Planet Earth. There are spots on Planet Earth that are highly magnetic.”

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

But are the magnetic levels, the Sky God legends, and recent sightings of UFOs, proof that a portal exists here? Are there other places that might offer more direct physical evidence?
