The Imperishable Sacred Land Theosophy teaches that a series of seven root-races or humanities will develop during the present fourth round of the earth’s evolution. The first humanity is said to have appeared in the mid-Paleozoic, about 150 million years ago (according to the theosophical timescale), and we are currently in the fifth. Each lives on its own ‘continent’, a word referring not only to the main continental area where the evolution of a… Read More

Early theories Since the scientific revolution, a small number of notable scientists have proposed the possibility of a hollow earth. One of the first was the famous English astronomer and mathematician, Sir Edmond Halley (1656-1742) [1]. He held that the earth had an outer crust, 500 miles thick, and a hollow interior containing three smaller spheres, one within the other, approximately the size of Venus, Mars, and Mercury, each sphere being… Read More

Was William Morgan ‘The Man’?

By Bruce Walton  Few Hollow Earth enthusiasts, I believe, are unfamiliar with the fascinating story of “I Am The Man”, as it appears on John Uri Lloyd’s book Etidorhpa.  The original manuscript was allegedly given to a Cincinnati man named Llewellyn Drury by a mysterious being who materialized in his room on a cold November night in the mid-1800s over 30 years before the volume was eventually published by a friend of his, John Uri Lloyd, also of Cincinnati. This strange being claimed to have formerly been a freemason who had, through some unusual encounter with destiny, undertook a remarkable journey into the center of the… Read More


Conclusion  In concluding this history of my adventures, I wish to state that I firmly believe science is yet in its infancy concerning the cosmology of the earth. There is so much that is unaccounted for by the world’s accepted knowledge of to-day, and will ever remain so until the land of “The Smoky God” is known and recognized by our geographers. It is the land from whence came the great logs of cedar that have been found by explorers in open waters far over the northern edge of the earth’s crust, and also the bodies of mammoths whose bones are found in vast beds on… Read More


Among The Ice PacksFor the next forty-five days our time was employed in dodging icebergs and hunting channels; indeed, had we not been favored with a strong south wind and a small boat, I doubt if this story could have ever been given to the world. At last, there came a morning when my father said: “My son, I think we are to see home. We are almost through the ice. See! the open water lies before us.” However, there were a few icebergs that had floated far northward into the open water still ahead of us on either side, stretching away for many miles. Directly… Read More


In The Under WorldWe learned that the males do not marry before they are from seventy-five to one hundred years old, and that the age at which women enter wedlock is only a little less, and that both men and women frequently live to be from six to eight hundred years old, and in some instances much older.18 18Josephus says: “God prolonged the life of the patriarchs that preceded the deluge, both on account of their virtues and to give them the opportunity of perfecting the sciences of geometry and astronomy, which they had discovered; which they could not have done if they had not lived… Read More

Strange Cave at the Table Mountains

In his book THE MAJIC PRESENCE, G.W. Ballard describes a strange experience which occurred to him and some companions while exploring a cave in Wyoming. While visiting Colorado he met a Mr. Daniel Rayborn. From there they traveled to the ‘Diamond K Ranch’ in Wyoming, one of the Rayborn mining properties, where the experiences described in the book began. There, he met Rayborn’s son Rex, an his daughter Nada. Some days later, they planned to spend the day exploring Table Mountain, one of their favorite haunts in the Wyoming Rockies. They mounted their horses, one of them an Arabian stallion which had been a gift to… Read More


Mount Shasta, in the northernmost part of California, has been a center of mystery for many students of ‘metaphysics’. The mountain is an extinct volcano and is the source of several Indian legends in the area. The following account can be found on pages 257-258 of “A DWELLER ON TWO PLANETS” by Phylos (the Tibetan).  A similar account can be found in “AN EARTH DWELLERS RETURN”, by the same:    “Beside a roaring, dashing mountain torrent, falling in myriad cascades of foam white as the drifted snow, interspersed with pools of quiet water… deep, trout-filled, blue, reflecting flowery banks and towering pine-crested ridges, “ribs of the planet”…… Read More
