Open Minds: Folklore vs. the Reality of Inner Earth Beings with Michael Mott (January 2016)

Season 6, Episode 5
Available worldwide

What if humanity was not the only intelligent life indigenous to the Earth? Michael Mott suggests that intelligent humanoid beings, dwelling in vast underground Biosystems, have always been a part of Earth’s complex ecosystems and inspired countless folktales from around the world. But no matter how fantastical these fairy tales of inner earth beings may seem, we must remember that all folklore has some basis in reality. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast January 21, 2016.

Michael Mott examines the striking similarities between folklore, religious, mythic, and first-hand witness or historical accounts cryptid and reptilian figures. His studies include the link between electromagnetism and some types of underworld beings, ghosts, UFOs and other related phenomena.

this is a subject that can really bring about a discussion.... .enjoyed the interview and definitely believe we aren't alone here and wonder what it would be like to get to meet One.
thanks you for adding this into the series!

because I love the host, she's well read, a great journalist, she knows all about the weird & wonderful of our existence. I can't get enough of this. This was an outstanding episode. I gathered good notes here for my research. Thank you Regina & Michael.

And not in the electromagnetic sense. Where do we draw the lines of de-territorialization (cf. Gilles Deleuze) that obtain between the physical and scientific interpretation of reality and the various overviews of "complete" systems, such as the one Mr. Mott describes? Take Bigfoot--for Mott no doubt a denizen of the inner planet, for others a being from another dimension, for still others (say Jeffrey Meldrum) an artifact of typical biological evolution? I'm the first to say that science doesn't have all, or even a fraction, of the answers, but outside science guideposts are few. I hope we can all walk together on the path to wisdom.

I so enjoyed this discussion. I think this subject merits at least one more show. Great job Meredith. This has made me rethink ETs and the Elemental Kingdom.

Hard to know where to start with this. Comparing shamanic dismemberment with violent alien abduction makes it clear there is a vast failure to comprehend. There are so many places where this conversation loses focus and fails to acknowledge or apprehend powerful and meaningful differences between psychic and physical experience that it's hard to know where to start. Bottom line: my feeling is there is a huge disconnect here. Not that the information is not fascinating, it is! But the lens through which it's being interpreted is clouded.

I agree EESA. While interesting, I felt the author interviewed was obsessed with looking at everything with a negative view and was missing some further investigation he should look into.

Thank you Regina and Michael for a very interesting interview and discussion. As a result I am looking further into this information and will buy Michael's book to find out more about this intriguing subject!

I do wonder where gargoyles originated from? They look very much like giant bats, but then according to others, they may be the Draco. And of course we have had nasty "looking" dinosaurs millions of year ago living on earth. And then there's the Devil. All stuff from the bowel of the earth? Or the mind? Any difference? Got his Kindle ebook and will read it. We really need more on this strange topic. Is it time to go revisit 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' by Jules Verne and re-think? Was it just a story on an astonishing subterranean menagerie or was there more to it? What exactly was Verne’s connections to prominent secret societies of his time? Thanks again for another informative and interesting program, Regina.

One of my favorite interviews so far. Keep up the great work Regina!

Micheal Mott - SUPERB information! Your research and ideas align so much of the evidence and really connect the dots in a new way.

There is far more about Inner Earth that has not yet know here; just what is Inner Earth, where it is truly and just how does one actually "get there". These questions and others are still yet to be explored more fully beyond the boundaries of this interview.
Many people have come to believe that these massive caverns beneath the Earth’s surface is what is here being termed, “Inner Earth” and that if you just "dig" deep enough into Earth’s mantle that eventually you will get to Inner Earth.
This is not true.
That there are “populated” caverns beneath the surface of the earth is true. These could also be said to be part of Earth’s “break-away” civilizations in that during many massive earth changes where surface life was being threatened with complete extinction, there have indeed been parts those ancient civilizations that sought refuge inside some of these massive underground 3D cavern structures and which are still populated today. These civilizations I would call Sub-surface civilizations and not Inner earth civilizations. These are two entirely different things here.
So these caverns and some of these civilizations are not to be construed or confused with civilizations that are located within Inner Earth.
In order to better understand just what and where Inner Earth is you must begin with a basic understanding of the dimensional structure of the 15 dimension time matrix itself.
Just what the 15 dimensions are within the time matrix and where is inner earth in regards to these dimensions. You see it is not just you digging deeper into earth’s mantle that will actually get you into inner earth. You must also shift your Angular Rotation of Particle Spin in order to even get yourself to the “portals” that are indeed located within the inner body of the planet that will bring you into the regions within the time matrix we call Inner Earth itself. This “shift in Angular Rotation of Particle Spin (ARPS)” is also synonymous with how these 15 dimensions relate to one another.
Let us say our 3D earth within the “Particum Universe” (what we perceive as our matter based universe that we see around us), is at 0 degrees regarding its (ARPS). Now we also have an Anti-Particle version of ourselves and our earth in the “Partika Universe” called “Parallel Earth”. Now to describe parallel earth imagine when you look into a mirror you see everything within this mirror, yourself as well as the world beyond, it is completely reversed. This begins to describe just what this reality field within this parallel universe is like. Reversed yet slightly different as both reality fields are based within a free will structure where in each controls their own destinies.
Now not only is everything between these two universes reversed but time is also slightly different in that parallel earth is slightly “ahead” us in terms of linear time that what we are experiencing here on earth.
Now as I state earlier if we here on earth are at the 0 degree point in (ARPS) then parallel earth is shifted to a 90 degree difference in (ARPS) the we are here.
Now Inner Earth’s (ARPS) is considered half way between earth and parallel earth at a 45 degree shift in ARPS.
And just like we cannot view parallel earth from where we are because of this variation in ARPS so too is it the same for viewing Inner earth from our current position in the time matrix. It is still way beyond our capacity to see inner earth even at the halfway point within this shifting of ARPS.
This is why you will not find Inner Earth within Earths 3D reality field and within its span of ARPS. Inner Earth will remain invisible to us until we knowingly learn how shift our APRS sufficiently enough to where we can physically modulate our bodies Oscillation/Frequency rates without ET assistance to be able to visit there.
There is still so much more about our holographic universe and Inner Earth that the Guardians have already shared with the human race via the "Freedom Teachings" if one but has the courage and patience to explore this amazing body of knowledge.
So there is indeed a big difference between some of these hidden civilizations beneath the Earth’s crust and the civilizations that exist within this realm we call Inner Earth and what the Guardians have called the Ecka within our time matrix.

Michael Mott's research backs up the thesis that Earth is a prison planet and the underworld is the lower rung of this prison. In some ways, it's like Dante revisited from the point of view of the 20 and 21st century.

Great Episode. Thank you for sharing.

Where do the blue.ISH color human beings come from?
Specifically...they tend to have a merlot shade to the hair color.

You see them talked about in the Sanskrit tradition I THINK...

I know I've seen a pic on a box of tea once.
Also, I think Corey Goode and David Wilcock referenced them on Cosmic Disclosure.

The part of the world of which they dwell and the name of the race or any other information would be greatly appreciated.

There is an amazing tapestry being created on Gaiam between Open Minds, Ancient Wisdoms, and Cosmic Disclosure. It's something to behold! I really enjoyed Michael Mott's interview and his perspective on the beings living under the surface. Folklore indeed. Thank you Regina for another insightful interview.

While watching this episode, 3/4 of the way thru a sign appears 'the video you are trying to watch is currently unavailable. Try again later.' This happens A LOT! It would be irritating if that sign appeared before viewing any of the episode, but 1/2 - 3/4 of the way through??? This occurs way too often. What's up???

I did not believe until just recently that we have beings (including Ancient BreakAway human Civilizations) below the surface of Earth. This was because those who advocate this are hollow Earth peeps (instead of a series of tunnels which makes so much more sense). Or that the three small 'g' gods in the bible might have been from inner Earth. At least one of them were, all were liars though. Consider that Marduk, one of the sons of Enki, whose method of operation was to do 50% good & 50% evil to fool the people of his nature, and died on a cross 3 times in history, the final time he was renamedJesus, and the meaning of all that was further confused so that the Romans who were in the business of creating religions to control the people (the Greeks did tthe same) created the new testament with its multiple meanings, at least one interpretation was for the Roman rulers (s0 they could laugh at the people) and one was for the ruled. Jeosaphat, I think was the name of the Jewish adopted son of Flavian Caesars who wrote both the new testament and the History of the Jews.

Mr. Mott goes further in his highly intuitive and intelligent observations about things like the large eyes (see The Higher Side Chats interview of Mr. Mott, which I searched out after seeing Regina's interview of him).

So much is going on now that just wasn't going on a year ago. And I think people awareness has moved on to the Annunaki to a much higher degree. I think the time is ripe for Michael Mott to receive a much larger audience than he has had before. For me, it is beginning after about 20 years of research, to make total connected sense between what was hidden ancient history and the criminal wealthy that rule this world. The later give orders to the people and the former give orders to the human crimals thata rule over us.

I see that Mr. Mott understood correctly all or most of this long ago., including the honeycombed Earth.

Thought this was great. Articulate and entertaining guest ... and spooky. Very timely given what is going on over in the David Wilcock and Corey Goode shows about the Honeycomb Earth and the inhabitants there posing as ETs (distracting surface dwellers from considering what lies beneath our feet!). Always appreciate your thorough prep for interviews. Thank you Regina.
