What if the gods and monsters of antiquity were actual physical beings?
Some people believe there is evidence that suggests the realm of these beings was not in man’s imagination as we have been led to believe but in a physical location now known as the hollow earth hollow theorists have searched the globe for entrances to this legendary realm one possible location could be a mysterious tunnel system carved into the cliffs at the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ roman site of Baiae(Bai-yae).
Some researchers believe it was part of a necromantic temple where citizens went to consult their deceased ancestors. Other researchers expand on this theory and think that the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ site, which includes an underground stream that some have identified as the legendary river Styx is a real-life entrance to the underworld Baiae was an A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ city of Campania, Italy, located on the west coast of the gulf of patio and lying 10 miles west of Naples according to A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ tradition Baiae was named after Baios the helmsman of Odysseus. However, many believe the story of Odysseus is a fantasy.
Archaeologists have discovered an 8th-century bc palace on the island of Ithaca, which could be evidence that Odysseus was an actual historical figure, and if this is the case, then it is possible Odysseus journey to the underworld occurred perhaps it’s no coincidence that this city is sitting at the mouth of the underworld is named after a close companion of the historical figure who may have traveled into its depths over the centuries the area around more bay became connected with the world of Greco roman myths and legends the waters of the nearby lake avernus was associated with the underworld, and it was thought the entrance to hades the underworld of classical Greece and then later Rome used by Roman Hero Aeneas in roman writer vigils epic the denied lake of Ernest is the entrance to the heroes Aeneas descent to consult the oracle of the dead most traditions places the prophet in a cave near the lake.
The earliest mention of this we have is from euphoria’s 4th-century bc description of Italy quoted by 1st century bc Greek geographer Strabo they live in underground houses, and it is through tunnels that they visit one another and also admit strangers to the oracle which is situated far beneath the earth, and they live on what they get from mining and from those who consult the oracle and from the king of the country who has appointed to give them fixed allowances and those who live about the prophet have an ancestral custom that no one should see the sun but should go outside the caverns only during the night, and it is for this reason that the poet homer spoke of them as follows, and never does the shining sun look upon them.
The greeks and the Romans are far from the only c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳s̳ to have at some point believed in or should we say interacted with beings from within the hollow earth mentions of lands and beings found beneath the surface of the earth are common throughout history. Across cultures, the pharaoh of Egypt believed in an underworld that may have been accessible beneath the pyramids of Giza believed that millions of people lived in an underground paradise called akhara, which the king of the world rules. Hindu texts describe a land known as Shambhala, which means a place of peace and is a magical hidden kingdom that exists beneath the surface of our planet.
Some cultures describe these inner realms as a paradise, while others, such as the Christian tradition, claim the realm of the underworld is quite literally hell. Hence, which is it heaven within the earth or a place of torture and despair when the mysterious tunnel in the ruins of Baiae was discovered in the mid-1950s, the entrance was full of rubble and declared to be dangerous to excavate by well-known Italian archaeologist Amedeo Mayuri because of toxic volcanic fumes at the time the archaeologist wondered if he’d stumbled upon the entrance to the fabled oracle of the dead or was it merely a simple steam channel for the roman baths? Indeed if the fumes were toxic, the tunnel could not have been part of a Roman bath complex. It seems to have been due to the presence of these supposedly toxic fumes that all archaeological work in the area was abandoned.
Still, in the early 1960s, the tunnel came to the attention of dr Robert Ferrand Paget, who had retired to the room with his wife, and Keith Jones, who worked at a nearby nato base. The pair explored the area extensively well as reading up on the local archaeology, and mythology, especially anything connected with stories of the underworld and its supposed entrance dr Padgett and Keith jones began a series of excavations in the area of Baiae.
September 21, 1962 eventually discovered the location of a mysterious extensive tunnel complex, in the end a total of around 1149 feet of narrow tunnels were found though there are probably more yet to be explored the tunnels are generally carved into the bare rock perfectly preserved and descend to a depth of 164 feet below the surface entrance in a 1967 book called in the footsteps of Orpheus dr Padgett outlined what he’d found Baiae and what he believed it represented indeed, the subtitle to this book gives this away from the story of the finding and identification of the lost entrance to hades the oracle of the dead the river Styx and the infernal regions of the greeks dr Paget essentially believed that he discovered the tunnels on which a Virgil based the visit to the underworld of Anais in book six of he also concludes in the book that the tunnels he excavated were used in orphic rites in which a visitor would be led to an underground river which he identified as the legendary sticks fed by thermal springs Dr. Paget also posits that Odysseus visited by in his voice to the underworld as recounted in homer’s odyssey he also comments on the later suppression and blocking up of the site by a roman general statesman and architect Agrippa the inner sanctuary had been completely filled in with earth.
He says the entrance tunnel was only 21 inches wide. There was no room for persons to pass anywhere except at the dividing of the ways all of the rocks and earth used to fill the space had been carried there from the surface in baskets no fewer than thirty thousand man journeys were involved in the transport of all this material the amount of effort this would take implies that the gripper attached paramount importance to this operation why in the world would A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people put this much time and energy into blocking a tunnel system they must have had a very compelling reason. Perhaps something changed in their relationship with the beings of the hollow earth.
Unfortunately, their motivation, for now, remains a mystery is the existence of a vast underground c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳, one of the biggest cover-ups in history there is a myriad of evidence that suggests this could be the case holloway theorists have proposed that there are entrances to the inner earth realms at both the north and south poles with our vast network of earth-orbiting satellites you would think we will be able to see images of these areas and disprove the existence to the alleged entrances to the inner earth once and for all, however, for some reason, even with highly advanced technology, our satellites are unable to get real-time images of these areas. A website called google earth blog explains the north pole is in the middle of the arctic ocean and although it is covered in ice, google earth shows a map of the seafloor and not satellite imagery. The reasoning is that almost all imaging satellites follow what is known as sun-synchronous orbit, and a sun-synchronous rotation does not cover the poles.
There have also been many news stories about various politicians and celebrities making expeditions to Antarctica. The question is to see what precisely in 2016 astronaut buzz aldrin made a trip to Antarctica and had to be medically evacuated afterward he tweeted and later deleted a photo of an antarctic mountain that looked a lot like a pyramid with the words we are all in danger it is evil itself could make the beings in the hollow earth hostile towards the surface population is this why so long ago the tunnels at my eye were meticulously filled in and what could we discover at the polls that the elite are unable or unwilling to show the rest of us with technology advancing rapidly and more and more people taking an interest in these mysteries it may not be long before we find out.
