The concept of “Hollow Earth” was first proposed to the modern world in the 17th century. The legendary scientist Edmond Halley suggested that the Earth is hollow and there’s undoubtedly life flourishing deep down there. Later, his claim was contradicted by other experts and he also did not continue his research on it. However, in later years, the so-called theory became popular as it is discussed in several folklores and cultures. Now, ancient astronaut theorists argue the possibility of Earth being hollow, and that inside, an unknown civilization lives.
In 2015, the New York Times bestselling author David Wilcock stated in his interview with Coast To Coast AM that an alliance of ancient civilizations lives inside the planet. These inhabitants called the inner Earth their home for a long time and were about to reveal it to the humans, he added.
Wilcock firmly believes that over the long history of our planet, numerous advanced civilizations such as the Atlanteans have gone underground to survive the chaotic times that have ruled the surface of our planet. Eventually, they decided to settle in their new underground habitat.
According to his information, the human timeline appears to bifurcate with a shift in the whole nature of matter, energy, and consciousness. While the negative timeline leads to an Armageddon and pole shift, on the positive timeline there is ascension and the advancement of souls, he detailed.
While citing the testimony of contactee Corey Goode, Wilcock claimed that the tenuous relationship between the inner Earth people and those living on the surface who know of their existence has become fractured in recent times. “This military-industrial complex had formerly worked with these people and had treaties with them and is now trying to kill them,” Wilcock said.
One group, known as the Nordics, portrayed themselves as ETs from the Pleiades to the US government, when they actually are Atlantean descendants who have lived here the whole time, Wilcock revealed. This is why, according to Wilcock, these Inner Earth Civilizations have come together in order to respond to the great threat emerging in recent times, and are turning to interstellar entities in hope of gaining their aid to fight the forces which are trying to destroy them.
In case the underground societies complied with the request, he reflected: “I think we are going to discover that the underground bases are much more extensive than we thought and much older.”
Scientifically speaking, Isaac Newton in his mathematical work on gravity demonstrated that there is nothing to stop astronomic bodies from developing empty cavities. Newton did not object when Edmond Halley suggested to him that our planet may be hollow. Even NASA appears to accept the possibility of hollow planets.
Wilcock explained that during the formation of all watery planets in the universe, hollow cavities are formed below the surface of the crust, with their very own biome with bacteria that is capable of giving off natural light. “What th is means is that you can actually live inside caverns in the Earth that have visible light,” he marveled.
Underground Civilizations In Folklore
The existence of underground tunnels and passageways has been the subject of debate for centuries. Ancient civilizations around the world speak of these entrances leading to whole new realms, situated deep below the surface of the planet.
A well-accepted example of an underground world is the ancient city of Derinkuyu, Turkey, extending to a depth of approximately 85 meters. It is large enough to have sheltered as many as 20,000 people together with their livestock and food stores. It is the largest excavated underground city in Turkey and is one of several underground complexes found throughout Cappadocia.
The city was built in the Byzantine era when it was heavily used as protection from Muslim Arabs during the Arab–Byzantine wars (780–1180 AD). The city was connected with other underground cities through many kilometers of tunnels. Some artifacts discovered in these underground settlements belong to the Middle Byzantine Period, between the 5th and the 10th centuries.
There are many firm believers who think there are many entrances to the underworld such as the Pyramid of Giza, Iguaçú Falls, Gobi desert, the Andes, the Himalayas, etc.
According to local legends, Shambhala is a kingdom of gods that exists both in the physical and spiritual plane. There is also a reference to this mythical land in various ancient texts. There is a description of some closely related land known as Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring in the Bön scriptures. Besides, Vishnu Purana, a Hindu sacred text, mentioned Shambhala as the birthplace of Kalki, the tenth and final avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.
Tibetans believe that the gods’ land is guarded by humans with supernatural powers and was often seen by locals. Tibetan lamas have been searching for Shambhala for centuries. Those who seek for the kingdom have either never returned, found it or died.
The story of two Russian expatriates Nicholas and Helena Roerich is the most fascinating one. The couple attempted several times to search Shambhala. At end of 1923, they arrived in Darjeeling, India, intending to find Shambhala.
Another incident that highlights the presence of Shambhala is the disappearance of the entire population of Guge people. Archeologists were stunned after finding the various tunnels in the city of Guge. Many theorists believe that these underground tunnels could have been a passage to Shambhala, and the Guge people found it and decided to leave the surface. It is estimated that around 100,000 people vanished without any trace.
There is another legend of Hopi Indians, when they were saved by so-called underground dwellers “Ant people” during the fire, volcanic eruption, asteroid strike, ice age, or a strong coronal ejection from the Sun. During these two devastating events, the Ant People civilization hid the Hopi people in their underground caves and provided them with food and water.
In the past, many conspiracies shaped the tale of the underground world but there are scientific discoveries that might support the theory.
