5.14 – THE CRYSTAL SKULLS (10.7.13)


Atlantis. In two of his famous dialogues, Timaeus and Critias, the 4th-century BC Greek philosopher Plato describes this “lost continent” as an island founded by Poseidon, the God of the Sea.

“Atlantis, at least as imagined by Plato, was very advanced technologically. Had very advanced and progressive ideas about justice, of law. In addition to being a sort of technological marvel, it’s also a model of ethical, philosophical and moral civilization, as well.”

Richard Rader, Ph.D.
(Lecturer, UCLA Dept of Classics/UCSB Dept of Classics),
(Author, Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus)

According to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, the Atlantians also used objects made of crystal, not only as a means of harnessing energy, but as a means to store important information, much like a computer.

“Part of the lore and legend of Atlantis is that the priests had taken the ancient relics and sacred knowledge of Atlantis and deposited it, or perhaps even encoded it, into crystal objects, including skulls.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

According to legend, the continent of Atlantis mysteriously disappeared thousands of years ago. But if Atlantis actually existed, is it possible that a handful of its citizens survived? And might crystal skulls be among the objects that survived with them? Could this explain why 12 of what are thought to be the original 13 skulls were found in nearly every part of the world? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and for evidence, point to the curious similarities that exist between the ancient Mayans and modern-day Tibetans.

“What we’re finding is that in those places across the world which have said to have been a place of refuge, in those places, we have crystal skulls, specifically Tibet, specifically the Mayan world. Those two areas are specifically linked as being identified as refuges of the Atlantis civilization.”

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

But what would be so important about the crystal skulls that would compel the doomed citizens of Atlantis to risk their lives in an effort to escape with them?

Tokyo, Japan. 2012. The engineering and electronics company, Hitachi, reveals a revolutionary data storage device, a quartz glass chip, which will preserve encoded information for millions of years.

“Hitachi announced some very exciting breakthroughs in etching data into actual quartz crystal type materials. And so, by figuring out a way to burn little holes in the quartz using high-powered lasers, you’ve now created your ones and zeros, and they were actually doing it at a scale where you can just look at it with a microscope and see the ones and zeroes and read it out.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“That chip, if intact, can be read a million years from now. But that also takes into question, how do you read the chip? Because you need to have the device with which to actually access the information. And that is the problem we are experiencing with the crystal skulls. If they contain knowledge, we don’t know where the “on” button is.”

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

“I would not exclude that in a crystal skull, there is a message, because we can make the most modern little chips out of crystals. So, I really suggest it has to do something with extraterrestrials. Maybe there is information in the crystal skull. But we have not the technology to reach this information. This is a question of the future.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Modern science has researched and explored the use of quartz crystal in cutting-edge technology and communication. But some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe that there is evidence that the ancients also recognized the potential of this uniquely conductive mineral.

“Quartz is said to be able to hold power, to be able to absorb energy. It’s been suggested that maybe the ancients used quartz to somehow record things in some way that we don’t quite understand, or possibly not to record so much, but to tap into other realms. Or to be able to use as communication devices.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

“Certain types of receivers, crystal radios, television sets, other types of communication, and even power for spaceships, can be done through quartz crystals. NASA even does special experiments in space where they want to grow perfect quartz crystals. So, the idea of quartz crystal technology being used by extraterrestrials as kind of high-tech technology makes a lot of sense.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(The Crystal Skulls)

“What we know as a fact is that crystal is able to store information. So, what we need to ask ourselves is whether crystal skulls were made out of crystal because our ancestors wanted to put information in them. While we might not have a means of extracting it, I think we really require it, for ourselves, to try and make an effort to see what kind of information might be present within these crystal skulls.”

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

“When we hear these stories about having to bring together all those crystal skulls, where does this premise come from, this idea that they have to come together, and then, something important happens? Well, could it be that each crystal skull might be some type of a computer chip, and that they belong to some motherboard of some extraterrestrial computer, and that the only way it works, if all those skulls come together?”

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

Might crystal skulls really be part of an elaborate ancient computer system? Could they be data-gathering devices, used for both recording and transmitting information? Perhaps further evidence can be found by measuring the electromagnetic energy field, or aura, surrounding an actual crystal skull named Einstein.
