5.8 – BEYOND NAZCA (2.15.13)


Pleasant Hill, Ohio, 1848. The Smithsonian Institute surveys a 1,350-foot long, three-foot high effigy mound built in the shape of a coiling serpent. Like the lines and geoglyphs of Nazca, this reptilian motif known as the Serpent Mound can only be seen from high above the Earth.

“Similar to Nazca, what we have with these earth mounds is that they’re put into easily recognizable symbols, but unless you’re looking at them from some altitude, they don’t look like anything.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Ancient Technology of Peru & Bolivia)

“In the Native American legend, we call it the Plume Serpent, which is probably the same as the Quetzalcoatl down in the tribes in Mexico. The Plume Serpent theory is probably related to something that came from the sky. It came from the extraterrestrial territory. Serpent Mound and other places of what the Indians used to call places of worship are very important to study these things. There are certain things that are connected for the well-being of the planet, whether it be the magnetic system, whether it be the Ley Lines, whether it be observance points from other worlds that existed here before.”

Clifford Mahooty (Zuni Tribal Elder)

According to historians and anthropologists, an indigenous Native American culture called the Fort Ancient People, built the mounds nearly 1,000 years ago. But, if so, why?

“Serpent Mound is an extraordinary site. It is one of the most important sites in North America. It’s almost as if somebody is trying to point out, that for anybody passing from above, he or she or it is about to approach a site of importance.”

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

Why would a so-called primitive people have constructed a massive earthwork that, like the geoglyphs and lines in Nazca, went unnoticed and undetected by those on the ground for hundreds of years? Perhaps a clue can be found in the fact that the Serpent Mound was constructed on the edge of a meteor crater that was formed approximately 300 million years ago. Coincidence? Or was the mound’s proximity to a meteor site intended to mark the presence of a very rare and precious element often found in meteors…iridium?

“Iridium has great conductive abilities. It’s one of the rarest elements we have, and it tends to be concentrated in unique areas for two reasons: either a meteorite crashed at some point in the past or volcanic activity and lava flow.”

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

“Looking at locations like the Serpent Mound in Ohio and various other sites, we see some type of energy source that either was powering these locations or is still offering some type of energy source today, like iridium and other exotic elements. And if extraterrestrials are aware of these locations, were they tapping into this energy?”

(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“The concentration of iridium on that site is ten times higher than what would be expected. Serpent Mound is some kind of memorial to the presence of another world involved in mining of this iridium at some point in the remote or maybe not-so-remote past.”

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

“There’s even gravitational anomalies such as you get at the Serpent Mound in Ohio which has magnetic and gravitational effects. And it can really affect your consciousness. There’s a whole preponderance of possibilities that these sites were built on these particular spots.”

Hugh Newman (Author, Earth Grids)

Could the Serpent Mound be a marker where extraterrestrial beings mined iridium as an energy source, as some Ancient Astronaut researchers believe? And, if so, might there be a connection between energy in the ground here and that found in the Nazca plain? Perhaps more clues can be found by examining the mysterious crop circles discovered throughout the world.

Wiltshire, England, 1978. Here, in this tranquil countryside 90 miles west of London, strange crop circles begin to appear overnight in fields of wheat and corn. Like the geoglyphs found at Nazca, the designs are geometric shapes seen only from above.

“Crop circles, they are described as some type of energy ball that whizzed through the field and all of a sudden there’s this intricate diagram. We also have to wonder if extraterrestrials potentially were involved in Nazca, maybe they’re also trying to get us messages today through crop circles.”

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

“There is a correlation between the ancient glyphs and the modern crop circles in that they’re both being presented to the Earth from what we would call Star People using a higher technology.”

– Richard Leviton (Author, Welcome to Your New Designer Planet)

Mainstream scientists have yet to acknowledge an extraterrestrial connection to crop circles. But Ancient Astronaut Theorists remain convinced that there is more here than what meets the skeptical eye. While some crop circles are undoubtedly the work of farmers and others trying to pull off a hoax, many cannot be explained so easily. They appear to be made too quickly, too perfectly. Some magically appear within a few hours, accompanied by strange lights in the sky. Could there be a connection between these unusual shapes and the mysterious designs found at Nazca?

“Now, people suggest that crop circles are made by either extraterrestrials or some sort of non-human intelligence, some sort of non-human entity that’s possibly trying to give us a message. If we draw the parallel between the crop circles and the Nazca Lines, one, yes, is made in, like, a sandy desert-type terrain; the other’s made in corn, but the actual designs are somewhat similar, and maybe even the message is a similar one, but it’s just been upgraded for a new era and a different country.”

(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

“In the past, we set the communications in stone. And what’s happening now, today, in fields all over the world but especially in England, the crop circles are so much more complex than the designs at Nazca. There definitely seems to be some sort of communication taking place.”

– 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)

“Somebody is trying to communicate with us, and we are too stupid to understand the communication. One morning, you have a simple circle in a crop field. Now, the humans think, “Okay, circle, it happens by the wind or by animals overnight or whatever.” We all are too arrogant, so we don’t try at communication.

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

Is there really a profound connection between the Nazca Lines and crop circles, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And might they contain messages that we have yet to decode?  If so, what are they trying to tell us? Perhaps answers can be found by examining other, equally strange geoglyphs, recently discovered after nearly 2,000 years.
