5.3 – ALIEN POWER PLANTS (1.4.13)


The sun temple at Abu Gorab Memphis, Egypt. In 1898, an excavation team with the Berlin Museum discovered the base of a massive obelisk estimated to have once stood at over 160 feet tall.

“According to the ancient Egyptian building texts from Edfu, Abu Gorab was known as the “Place of the Gods.”  Egyptologists know it as a place where the ancients connected with divine energies. It is said that this is the very place where pharaohs and priests experienced heightened awareness through the use of vibrations transmitted through the obelisk.”

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

“This ancient obelisk was used as a geodetic marker, pinpointing the source of some type of ancient energy. Maybe not spiritual energy, but actual physical energy that they were able to harness.”

While scholars believe Abu Gorab was home to one of the largest obelisks ever constructed, similar-shaped monoliths have been found in hundreds of variations all over the world. Unsuitable for shelter, storage, or a higher vantage point, could obelisks have served another more powerful purpose.

“There’s evidence that obelisks are tapping in to this natural energy that’s part of the Earth. The whole concept is to take these natural energies of the Earth and manipulate them. It’s a subtle energy, but for those who have the devices and technology to see and measure this energy, it’s something that can be used.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“I believe obelisks are kind of like acupuncture needles for the Earth, focusing and possibly healing Earth energy meridians that are not balanced, and that the ancient cultures knew how to do that.”

Patrick Flanagan, Ph.D. (Author, Pyramid Power)

A vast number of obelisks are constructed from granite a stone containing high concentrations of energy-responsive quartz crystal. Because of its crystalline structure, quartz has the ability to convert the Earth’s natural electrical vibrations into usable energy by a property known as piezo-electricity.

“The piezo is for the vibrating or oscillating, and the electric is for electric. What this means is that you can use electricity to make them vibrate mechanically. And when they vibrate mechanically they can generate electricity.”

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

“Crystals have been used throughout all of history for various inventions, various technologies, and for getting things done. Your watch that you wear on your wrist could be a technology that uses crystals. Crystals are literally a tool and a technology that’s essentially for transducing energy, and that is taking energy in one state and essentially converting it to another state.”

Doc Barham (Advisor, The Monroe Inst.)

Is it possible the ancient cultures that erected obelisks had some understanding of the high-tech properties of quartz? And if so, could they have used obelisks to transmit energy over vast distances? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer is yes, and that evidence can be found by studying the work of Nicola Tesla.  In July 1899, the famed scientist claimed to have invented a way to transmit electricity through the air, wirelessly, all over the world. By harnessing the Earth’s natural conductivity or what Tesla called “standing waves” giant transmitters could send and receive limitless amounts of electricity, flowing like invisible water. And one of the key components in his system was quartz crystal.

“Typically when we deal with the energy of electromagnetic waves it’s in what we call a propagating form. It’s like the flashlight you turn it on and it moves. It propagates through space and goes from one place to another. A standing wave is kind of a different phenomena because the wave just oscillates in one place up and down, and the energy goes in between two different regions, back and forth.”

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

“Tesla was proposing and tried to build this system of wireless power. He built the Wardenclyffe Tower on Long Island in New York. Tesla was going to then hook this tower up to a power plant and he was going to broadcast electricity. According to him, antigravity airships would draw power from these towers. Ships, cars and other power plants could also draw from this broadcast power.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Was Tesla’s technological breakthrough a modern scientific innovation, or could it have been a rediscovery of a lost alien technology? Some researchers believe that, like Tesla, ancient builders discovered the ability to harness and broadcast Earth’s power, and the ancient equivalent to Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower may have been the Great Pyramid. The walls of this massive monument contain a high concentration of quartz crystal, and some believe the Great Pyramid, in conjunction with the obelisks, made up what may have been a global wireless energy network.

“The pyramids were actually geo-mechanical devices. In other words, they were attached to the Earth. They were tuned to vibrate with the frequencies of the Earth and they converted the energies of the Earth into electromagnetic energy.”

– Christopher Dunn (Engineer),
(Author, Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt)

“Obelisks themselves particularly the ones we find in Egypt, are in fact, giant crystal antennas, and they can broadcast power in a way that Nikola Tesla, the great American inventor wanted to broadcast power.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Could obelisks have been constructed as ancient energy conductors? And was this expertise really the product of man alone, or might it been the result of an otherworldly intelligence, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend?

“We do know that obelisks symbolize this power of the gods. The top of the obelisk is a small pyramid; it is a ban-ban stone. And it is the ban-ban stone, which is said to have been a communication device with the deities.”

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

“It’s possible that inside of some pyramids there might be some sort of energy, let’s say, some sort of equipment, which creates waves. So, I could imagine that some of the real gods, the extraterrestrials, some thousands of years ago, they left some little technology inside the pyramid. And this technology was very super modern and powerful.”

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

Could the numerous obelisks found at various sites all around the world actually be remnants of a power system far more sophisticated than anything available today? And is it possible our ancestors may have pioneered other types of power plants thousands of years ago, which would be considered cutting-edge by 21st-century standards? Some believe the answer can be found in the remote mountains of the Himalayas.
