Gateway To Hell: Israeli Scientists Explore Twins Cave For Ancient Door To Underworld
Gateway To Hell: Israeli Scientists Explore Twins Cave For Ancient Door To Underworld
It's an ancient legend: Located in scattered areas of Earth are openings, doorways, gates, if you will, to some unseen underworld, also variously referred to as hell, Hades and Dante's Inferno.
Researchers exploring the famous Twins Cave outside of Jerusalem have uncovered evidence of some pagan rituals, dating back to the Roman Empire, that suggest people may have believed the cave was a portal to this underworld.
Bar-Ilan University archaeologists found 42 clay lamps -- dating to the late Roman period -- in a 70-foot-long vertical shaft inside the cave. It's speculated that the lamps may have been used in ancient rituals between the 2nd and 4th century C.E., to supposedly guide the Greek goddess Demeter into Hades to search for her missing daughter.
"In the ancient world, it's tricky -- if not dangerous --to try to assume that we know what the people really thought," said Daniel Schowalter, a professor of religion and classics at Carthage College in Wisconsin.
"Even if there were rituals going on at the site, associated with the underworld, people probably knew that it was just a cave," Schowalter told The Huffington Post.
The idea of some mysterious, menacing dark world of the dead has been written about for as long as humans have speculated about it. Even still, Schowalter says most people don't understand the difference between the terms hell and Hades.
"It's called the realm of Hades, where Hades is the king," he said. "In Greek and Roman conceptions, it's a different understanding than what Christians later developed in terms of hell as a place of punishment.
"Hades was the world of the dead -- the place where the dead lived. The expectation was that when you died, you passed into a different form of life."
Schowalter is the co-director of an excavation site of a Roman temple in northern Israel. He explains the early belief that when you died, "you went to live in the place of the dead, which is the underworld, a kind of shadowy place, which did not necessarily involve punishment, and you weren't sent there because you were bad. It's just where dead people went."
But how would one actually reach this mysterious underworld realm?
According to the online edition of Israel's Haaretz, "dark, deep pits or caves were considered gateways to hell and were often used for rituals dedicated to pagan gods."
Numerous books, movies and television shows have depicted the dark, shadowy underworld. But is there any truth to the idea that an actual entrance to such a place may someday be discovered?

The kingdom of this inner society is called Agharta with the
main-city of Shamballa. Those places referenced in the image above,
lie inward and have also an inward sky with clouds.

The most strange hint is given, that the Center of Gravity is not
the center of Earth, but also a sub-sphere or a layer quite 200 miles
below of the surface we live.
It follows some excerpts and views of the Hollow Earth:
In The Inner Earth
On February 19, 1947, Admiral Richard
E. Byrd left Base Camp Artic and flew
What happened on that flight?
For years rumors have persisted that on
his historic flight to the North Pole, Admiral
Byrd flew heyond the Pole into an
opening leading inside the Earth. Here he
met with advaneed heings who had a sobering
message for him to deliver to Mankind an the
Upon Byld's return to Washington, on
Marrh 11, 1947 he was interviewed intently
by top security forces and a medical
team. He was placed under strict control
and ordered to remain silent on the behalf
of humanity. Being a militaly man, he felt
he had to comply.
Here, from Admiral Byrd's secret log
and diary, is the message meant to have
been heard 45 years ago!
Excerpt of The Hollow Earth (no ISBN):
"During his Arctic flight of 1,700 miles BEYOND the North Pole
he reported by radio that he saw below him, not ice and snow, but
land areas consisting of mountains, forests, green vegetation, lakes
and rivers, and in the underbrush saw a strange animal resembling
"In January, 1956, Admiral Byrd led another expedition to the
Antarctic and there penetrated for 2,300 miles BEYOND the South
Pole. The radio announcement at this time (January 13, 1956) said:
"On January 13, members of the United stated expedition penetrated a
land extent of 2,300 miles BEYOND the Pole. The Flight was made by
Rear Admiral George Dufek of the United States Navy Air Unit."
Byrd said on March 13, 1956, "The present expedition has opened up a
vast new land."
Admiral Byrd said in February, 1947 before his North Pole flight,
"I'd like to see that land beyond the Pole. That area beyond the
Pole is the center of the great unknown."
Excerpt of A Flight to the Land Beyond the North Pole:
"I bid you welcome to our domain, Admiral." I see a man
with delicate features and with the etching of years upon his
face. He is seated at a long table. He motions me to sit down
in one of the chairs. After I am seated, he places his fingertips
together and smiles. He speaks softly again, and conveys the
following. "We have let you enter here because you are of noble
character and well-known on the Surface World, Admiral."
"Surface World," I half-gasp under my breath! "Yes," the
Master replies with a smile, "you are in the domain of the Arianni,
the Inner World of the Earth. We shall not long delay
your mission, and you will be safely escorted back to the surface
and for a distance beyond. But now. Admiral, I shall tell
you why you have been summoned here. Our interest rightly
begins just after your race exploded the first atomic bombs
over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. It was at that alarming
time we sent our flying machines, the 'Flugelrads,' to your
surface world to investigate what your race had done.
"That is, of course, past history now, my dear Admiral, but
I must continue on. You see, we have never interfered before
in your race's wars, and barbarity, but now we must, for you
have leamed to tamper with a certain power that is not for
man, namely, that of atomic energy. Our emissaries have already
delivered messages to the powers of your world, and
yet they do not heed. Now you have been chosen to be witness
here that our world does exist. You see, our culture and
science is many thousands of years beyond your race, Admiral."
I interrupted, "But what does this have to do with me,
The master's eyes seemed to penetrate deeply into my
mind, and after studying me for a few moments he replied,
"Your race has now reached the point of no return, for there
are those among you who would destroy your very world
rather than relinquish their power as they
I nodded, and the Master continued. "In
1945 and afterward, we tried to contact
I your race, but our efforts were met with
hostility. Our Flugelrads were fired upon,
yes, even pursued with malice and animosity
by your fighter planes. So, now, I say to
you, my son, there is a great storm gathering
in your world, a black fury that will not
spend itself for many years. There will be
no answer in your armies, there will be no
safety in your science. It may rage on until
every flower of your culture is trampled
and all human things are leveled in vast
"Your recent war was only a prelude of
what is yet to come for your race. We here
see it more clearly with each hour...do you
say I am mistaken?"
"No," I answer," it happened once before, the Dark Ages
came and they lasted for more than five hundred years."
"Yes, my son," replied the Master, "the Dark Ages that
will come now for your race will cover the Earth like a pall,
but I believe that some of your race will live through the
storm, beyond that, I cannot say. We see at a great distance a
new world stirring from the ruins of your race, seeking its lost
and legendary treasures, and they will be here, my son, safe in
our keeping. When that time arrives, we shall come forward
again to help revive your culture and your race.
"Perhaps, by then, you will have learned the futility of war
and its strife...and after that time, certain of your culture and
science will be returned for your race to begin anew. You, my
son, are to return to the Surface World with this message..."
With those closing words, our meeting seemed at an end. I
stood for a moment as in a dream...but, yet, I knew this was
reality, and for some strange reason I bowed slightly, either
out of respect or humility, I do not know which.
Suddenly, I was again aware that the two beautiful hosts
who had brought me here were again at my side. "This way,
Admiral," motioned one. I turned once more before leaving
and looked back toward the Master. A gentle smile was
etched on his delicate ancient face. "Farewell, my son," he
spoke, then he gestured with a lovely, slender hand a motion
of peace and our meeting was truly ended.
Quickly, we walked back through the great door of the
Master's chamber and once again entered into the elevator.
The door slid silently downward and we were at once going
upward. One of my hosts' spoke again, "We must now make
haste, Admiral, as the Master desires to delay you no longer
on your schedule timetable and you must return with his mes-
sage to your race."

Secrets of the Subterranean Cities
World Ascension Network
Recently, America watched Stephen Spielberg's TV pilot, a
remake of Verne' s "Journey to the Center of the Earth." A
maverick team of scientists aboard their melt-proof ship
enter the inner Earth through a bubbling volcano. When
things cool off, they find themselves exploring a vast and
sunny inner landscape . . . a magical and inviting world with
ample room to fly.
Their adventure resembles the real life account of a
Norwegian sailor named Olaf Jansen. His story, set in the 1800s,
is told in Willis Emerson's biography entitled "The
Smoky God." Olaf's little sloop drifted so far north by
storm that he actually sailed into a polar entrance and
lived for two years with one of the colonies of the Agartha
Network, called "Shamballa the Lesser." He describes his
hosts as those "of the central seat of government for the
inner continent . . . measuring a full 12 feet in
height . . . extending courtesies and showing
kindness . . . laughing heartily when they had to improvise
chairs for my father and I to sit in." Olaf tells of a
"smoky" inner sun, a world comprised of three-fourths land
and one-fourth water.
The Agartha Network
Think of Shamballa the Lesser as the United Nations of
over 100 subterranean cities that form the Agartha Network.
It is, indeed, the seat of government for the inner world.
While Shamballa the Lesser is an inner continent, its
satellite colonies are smaller enclosed ecosystems located
just beneath the Earth' s crust or discreetly within
mountains. All cities in the Agartha Network are physical
and are of the Light, meaning that they are tradition of the
great mystery schools of the surface, honoring such beings
as Jesus/Sananda, Buddha, Isis and Osiris . . . all of the
Ascended Masters that we of the surface know and love, in
addition to spiritual teachers of their own long-standing
Why did they choose to live underground? Consider the
magnitude of the geological Earth changes that have swept
the surface over the past 100,000 years. Consider the
lengthy Atlantean-Lemurian war and the power of
thermonuclear weaponry that eventually sank and destroyed
these two highly advanced civilizations. The Sahara, the
Gobi, the Australian Outback and the deserts of the U.S .
are but a few examples of the devastation that resulted. The
sub-cities were created as refuges for the people and as
safe havens for sacred records, teachings and technologies
that were cherished by these ancient cultures.
POSID: Primary Atlantean outpost, located beneath the
Mato Grosso plains region of Brazil. Population: 1.3
SHONSHE: Refuge of the Uighur culture, a branch of the
Lemurians who chose to form their own colonies 50,000 years
ago. Entrance is guarded by a Himalayan lamasery.
Population: 3/4 million.
RAMA: Remnant of the surface city of Rama, India located
near Jaipur. Inhabitants are known for their classic Hindu
features. Population: 1 million.
SHINGWA: Remnant of the northern migration of the
Uighurs. Located on the border of Mongolia and China. with a
small secondary city in Mt. Lassen, California. Telos
translated means "communication with Spirit." Population:
Spotlight on Telos
How can over a million people make their home inside Mt.
Shasta? While we're stretching our imaginations, our
neighbors, the Japanese, have already blueprinted
underground cities in answer to their surface area problem.
Sub-city habitation has, for thousands of years, been a
natural vehicle for human evolution. Now, here is a peek at
a well-thought-out ecosystem.
The dimensions of this domed city are approximately 1.5
miles wide by 2 miles deep. Telos is comprised of 5 levels.
LEVEL 1: This top level is the center of commerce,
education and administration. The pyramid-shaped temple is
the central structure and has a capacity of 50,000.
Surrounding it are government buildings, the equivalent of a
courthouse that promotes an enlightened judicial system,
halls of records, arts and entertainment facilities, a hotel
for visiting foreign emissaries, a palace which houses the
"Ra and Rana Mu" (the reigning King and Queen of the royal
Lemurian lineage who are Ascended Masters), a communications
tower, a spaceport, schools, food and clothing dispatches
and most residences.
LEVEL 2: A manufacturing center as
well as a residential level. Houses are circular in shape
and dust-free because of it. Like surface living, housing
for singles, couples and extended families is the norm.
LEVEL 3: Hydroponic gardens. Highly advanced hydroponic
technology feeds the entire city, with some to spare for
intercity commerce. All crops yield larger and tastier
fruits, veggies and soy products that make for a varied and
fun diet for Telosians. Now completely vegetarian, the
Agartha Cities have taken meat substitutes to new heights.
LEVEL 4: More hydroponic gardens, more manufacturing and
some natural park areas.
LEVEL 5: The nature level. Set
about a mile beneath surface ground level, this area is a
large natural environment. It serves as a habitat for a wide
variety of animals, including those many extinct on the
surface. All species have been bred in a non-violent
atmosphere, and those that might be carnivorous on the
surface now enjoy soy steaks and human interaction. Here you
can romp with a Saber-Toothed Tiger with wild abandon.
Together with the other plant levels, enough oxygen is
produced to sustain the biosphere.
LANGUAGE: While dialects vary from city to city, "Solara
Maru," translated as the "Solar Language," is commonly
spoken. This is the root language for our sacred languages
such as Sanskrit and Hebrew.
GOVERNMENT: A Council of
Twelve, six men and six women, together with the Ra and Rana
Mu, do collective problem solving and serve as guides and
guardians of the people. Positions of royalty such as are
held by the Ra and Rana Mu are regarded as ones of
responsibility in upholding God' s divine plan. The High
Priest, an Ascended Master named Adama, is also an official
COMPUTERS: The Agarthean computer system is amino-acid
based and serves a vast array of functions. All of the
sub-cities are linked by this highly spiritualized
information network. The system monitors inter-city and
galactic communication, while, simultaneously, serving the
needs of the individual at home. It can, for instance,
report your body's vitamin or mineral deficiencies or, when
necessary, convey pertinent information from the akashic
records for personal growth.
MONEY: Non-existent. All
inhabitants' basic needs are taken care of. Luxuries are
exchanged via a sophisticated barter system.
Moving sidewalks, inter-level elevators and electromagnetic
sleds resembling our snow mobiles within the city. For
travel between cities, residents take "the Tube," an
electromagnetic subway system capable of speeds up to 3,000
m.p.h. Yes, Agartheans are well versed in intergalactic
etiquette and are members of the Confederation of Planets.
Space travel has been perfected, as has the ability for
interdimensional shifts that render these ships
ENTERTAINMENT: Theatre, concerts and a wide
variety of the arts. Also, for you Trekkies, the Holodecks.
Program your favorite movie or chapter in Earth history and
become a part of it!
CHILDBIRTH: A painless three months,
not nine. A very sacred process whereby, upon conception, a
woman will go to the temple for three days, immediately
welcoming the child with beautiful music, thoughts and
imagery. Water birthing in the company of both parents is
HEIGHT: Due to cultural differences, average
heights of subterranean citizens vary. Generally 6'5" to
7'5" in Telos, while nearly 12' in Shamballa the Lesser.
AGE: Unlimited. Death by degeneration is simply not a
reality in Telos. Most Agartheans choose to look an age
between 30 and 40 and stay there, while, technically, they
may be thousands of years old. By not believing in death,
this society is not limited by it. Upon completing a desired
experience, one can disincarnate at will.
ASCENSION: Absolutely, and much easier and more common than on the
surface. Ascension is the ultimate goal of temple training.
Why have they stayed underground all this time? In part,
because the Agartheans have learned the futility of war and
violence and are patiently waiting for us to draw the same
conclusion. They are such gentle folk that even our
judgemental thoughts are physically harmful to them. Secrecy
has been their protection. Until now, the truth of their
existence has been veiled by Spirit. When can we visit? Our
entrance to the sub-cities depends on the purity of our
intentions and our capacity to think positively. A warm
welcome from both worlds is the ideal and must be expressed
by more than just the lightworking community.
Currently, a few hundred brave subterraneans are working
on the surface. In order to blend with the masses, they have
undergone temporary cellular change so that, physically,
they don't tower above the rest of us. They may be
recognized by their gentle, sensitive nature and somewhat
mysterious accent. We wish to introduce you to Princess
Sharula Aurora Dux, the daughter of the Ra and Rana Mu of
Telos. Sharula has been officially appointed Ambassador to
the surface world by the Agartha Network. She is 267 years
old and looks 30. This article is courtesy of her firsthand
The purpose of her Ambassadorship is to prepare the way
for the merging of the two worlds . . . to bring the ideas, the
information and the new archetypes that will help unite our
planet. Sharula has come to present a blueprint for peaceful
change to those who will listen. The Agartheans have reached
a point where they cannot progress spiritually unless this
merger takes place. In essence, we are one planet ascending,
not half a planet. It is God 's will that we take the next
The sooner we invite this unity, the sooner the magic
will unfold. The Hierarchy has made the emergence of the
subterranean cities a priority project. They are asking us
to do our part in welcoming our brethren. The timing depends
very much upon our receptivity and our graciousness. A
successful merger is estimated within the next 10 to 20
Beloved, there is nothing to fear and everything to
gain. The gifts the Agartheans bring are many. The secret of
immortality is your birthright. The freedom to live in
abundance is also your birthright. You haven't lived until
you've tasted a hydroponic tomato and had a little fun on
This concept of a Hollow Earth might sounds quite strange
at the first view, but in context of OBE and
Astral-Traveling it may get more understandable:
Those inner lying planes (non-physical or semi-physical) hold also life-forms
as astral-plane hold astral-entities with their own cities and forms.
"Semi-physical" means, physical bodies slighly more subtle as we have, but
able to live within matter.

The earth is hollow in the fourth dimension. The earth exists as a
torus in that perspective. There are two "entrances," and these are
reflected in the physical world as the north and south magnetic poles.
Note that the physical north pole and the magnetic pole are not
synonymous in site, but wander in relationship.
Read Bentov's Stalking the Wild Pendulum for a nice easy explanation
of this phenomenon, which has to do with the mechanics of human
consciousness, rather than some material opening in the earth.

Question: I don't know if this will fit in
with the talk, but lately there has been a lot of
news coming out about the inner Earth and
about the people there and Admiral Bird in the
early part of this century from Walberg, some
facility openings at the poles, and that this
government helps them. I have been reading a
lot of books about that lately. That information
seems to be coming out. Is there something I
need to know about inner Earth beings?

They are actually living in the fourth dimension.
There are many beings living in the inner Earth.
