The Ancient Matrix: Michael Tellinger on the Secrets of Lost Civilizations

The Ancient Matrix: Michael Tellinger on the Secrets of Lost Civilizations

It’s easy to dismiss claims of sophisticated ancient civilizations as wacky. But as Gaia.com’s Regina Meredith says, “It’s not about right or wrong, but honoring each other’s perceptions.” In Meredith’s Secrets of Lost Civilizations interview with researcher Michael Tellinger, Tellinger shares his possible proof that we’ve only scratched the surface on our study of civilizations of yore. For example, what if ancient civilizations were so advanced they were able to clone a species to help mine gold? What if the Sumerians’ constellation of ruins in Africa were energetic devices potentially used for teleportation?

When you enter Tellinger’s world, leave the snark at the door. You’ll be shown a place of portals and stargates, where rocks make music and calendars last over 75,000 years. Tellinger skillfully describes some of the most interesting technologies that these vanished civilizations of southern Africa pioneered:

A vast network of hubs

There are around 10 million ancient stone circles in South Africa, all connected by stone channels, which historians originally thought were designed for cattle. Tellinger suggests these structures were used for gold mining instigated by the Annunaki (a group of Sumerian gods), who created a slave race by genetically tinkering with indigenous proto-humans.

Singing stones

The extremely hard hornfels stone, which Tellinger believes was brought to the area for the express purpose of creating the monuments, has rich tonal qualities and vibrant musicality. In the show, Tellinger demonstrates various examples of these incredible acoustic stones.

Adam’s calendar

This monolithic stone calendar marks time out by the day – and should be on everyone’s bucket list of places to see. Tellinger believes that it’s the oldest manmade structure on earth, dating back at least 75,000 years. The calendar, he says, is still accurate today.

What happens in the circle, stays in the circle

Ground-penetrating radar and other tests of the ruins have revealed numerous anomalies, Tellinger reports, such as electromagnetic waves inside the circles and intense heat signatures.

The scope of Tellinger’s physical evidence for these lost civilizations is impressive, and deserves our attention. In these stones, he uncovers poetry—the stories of a people able to heighten their senses and expand their consciousness.

Squash the impulse to scoff—it just makes us more rigid and intransigent in our thinking. Instead, tune into Meredith’s deft interview with Tellinger, as she diplomatically navigates her way into controversial territory, all the while encouraging us to open our minds to the possibilities. Be willing to suspend disbelief—and expand your own.



The Tall, Red-Headed Demi-Gods From Orion

The Tall, Red-Headed Demi-Gods From Orion

Humans through millennia have gazed into the night’s sky at Orion’s three outstanding stars. Among them was the Greek poet Homer who made mention of the constellation in the Odyssey;. the writers of the Old Testament referenced Orion in two of its books, Job and Amos; and the Egyptian mathematician Ptolemy, who cataloged Orion in his astronomical studies.

Named after the Greek hunter, the constellation of Orion is one of the most famous of all constellations, with nearly every ancient civilization forming an affinity to it from the Middle East to Africa and across the Americas. It is even said that the ancient Egyptians and Mayans used the three stars of Orion’s belt as a guide for positioning the pyramids, to mimic what they had seen in the heavens above. 

And modern-day researchers, including Freddy Silva, are putting together the pieces embedded in the myths of the ancient world, asserting that the “gods” descended from the belt of Orion, came to Earth, and became our ancestors.

Many have questioned the origins of humans on Earth, as there seems to be no definitive starting point, but several researchers, such as Graham Hancock, Freddy Silva, and others, have concluded that mainstream science is way off the mark.

Silva cites several interesting sites and cultures that point to extraterrestrial origins of the human race, and his evidence is worldwide. The gods, Silva suggests, may have been more literal than mythical. A god, he says, “was considered any being who had control over the laws of nature… a god is a force of nature.” The gods who descended from Orion and came to planet Earth were human-like, but not quite human.

Much of this mystery has to do with the great flood occurring around 12,000 years ago that is written about in the oldest literature of myriad cultures. Following the flood, the gods seem to have moved on from this world, leaving their children behind to procreate with human women. The offspring were known as Nephila, translating to “the children of Orion.”
