Me too. I always thought of "as above so below" or "on earth as is in heaven". That has always got me thinking about something that's missing that was part of humanity. Also it blows my mind how far back humans have been saying that and we still say it now, crazy.

I also wonder about the u boats maybe finding an underwater entrance to this place, maybe there's some type of energy down there that gives them light and heat, like the mysterious red orbs that show over the oceans after earthquakes, maybe it's the energy leaking out? Lol I love imagining things like this.

I can picture future headlines if they ever do tunnel down in to those tunnels and explore:

"Explorers Find New Life! Barely Survive!"

I read some historical records once that went into detail about the Nazi era explorers going to Antarctica. I specifically remember that a map was produced of the under ice area to guide submarine captains so they knew where and when to change direction so as to avoid hitting anything to get to where they were going under the ice sheet. Wondering if these 2 stories are related.

I think at one time a lot of humans lived underground or in tunnels in the earth. This is where the saying came from as it is above it is below. Now a lot of those people may have died by different means throughout history. There could be some isolated cases of people still living in caves though. We live in big concrete apartment buildings today, not underground. Same thing, the building extends the electromagnetic field above us.

Ice caves caused by times of warmer water running at times through history is probably what they are.

To my knowledge, the "as above, so below" is an ancient occultic or philosophic statement. It has to do with macrocosm/microcosm, in that we are microcosm of the universe, as is an atom of the solar system for example (roughly). The phrase doesn't have anything to do with hollow earth theories or living underground.

NAZI UFO OCCULT BASES RUN BY HITLER CLONESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Lol, sorry. I had a moment there. But in all seriousness, interesting. I wonder how far they go and if they are more caves or actual tunnels.

A team of British scientists has discovered tunnels that are almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower under an ice shelf in Antarctica. Researchers from a number of UK universities and the British Antarctic Survey - a research centre based on the continent - detected the tunnels when they flew a plane over the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica. Radar from the plane, as well as satellite photos, revealed that ridges and cavities on the surface of the ice sheet corresponded to tunnels lying at its base.

Scientists are not really sure what caused the tunnels to from but they suggest that the may have been formed by water. However considering the rich and mysterious history of Antarctica I could not help but think of the myths of hollow earth.

What ever the cause of the tunnels further investigation is needed...

Meltwater can carve some pretty crazy features in the ice, even something on this sort of scale.

The interesting thing for me is how it hasn't collapsed?

Donitz's impregnable fortress was the Uboat pens built in a French harbor during the war. The pens were built of concrete so thick that bombers were never successful in penetrating them. I just watched a documentary on Netflix about them a month ago. The quote is being taken way out of context.

Lorient(sp) was the location of the "impregnable fortress".

Just drop a few rov's in there STAT!!

And if its that large you could easily fly small uav's inside and get mapping and imaging. GO GO

I think one of the biggest problems with the hollow earth theory is well the misconception (that is so convenient for all the debunkers since they only need to debunk that part and automatically they say they debunkedd the whole theory ) that the earth has to be hollow inside like a balloon ..
Which lets face it has a pretty slim chance to be true .. BUT there is a very big possibility that our lovely planet has gigantic and I mean gigantic caverns inside that could span for hundreds if not thousands of miles with a whole ecosystem thriving inside them ..

To the unknowing observer that somehow end up inside one of them this could even look like a hollow earth...

So please do not cling to the whole balloon like hollow earth theory , but instead think about it in terms of huge hollow pockets between the "rock" ...

Looking at this from this perspective, it is no longer so unimaginable that there could be something down there in those caverns.

Edit: Look at this cavern that was disvovered some time ago in Vietnam (I think biggest to date) ... It has a forrest and I believe a river and fully funcional ecostsyem inside it .. So why would there not be much much much bigger caverns deeper inside ?

Amazing story about a Nazi base there. I had heard of the Operation Highjump rumors and Nazis but not any British expedition.

This is fascinating, given that life has been found in the lake's devoid of solar energy I wonder if any of these tunnel's are old enough to have life in them, it is also interesting that if they reached the sea they may very well be that same area that the German's supposedly called an impregnable fortress for there furure in new schwabenland, they definitely did do something there but what is the question, I believe though that after the us naval expedition they relocated to south america as they would definitely know that even if they had beaten the first expedition back then specialists expeditions would later have finished them off.
Of course there is this unproven and unprovable story,
For me it was not the technology but the snow men that made this unbelievable and I might have bought it except for this but I do believe the NAZI's did set up extensive facility's there with supply run's between antarctica and south america.

There is so much we're not told about Antarctica, that it should have it's own forum. Fascinating stories get associated with that place.

Here is a nice video that will correlate with this OP.

Quite a few threads have been made about that video.

Most likely moulin's, and not some wild conspiracy other than another grim warning that global warming is real.

posted on Sep, 1 2014 @ 03:10 PM
Wow, very interesting! Does anyone know if they plan to further study it with more equipment? Are there any actual radar pictures that were taken?

I don't know much about the hollow earth theory/idea, but while I don't find it to be very plausible (again basing my opinion off of a not very informed one at that), I find the idea of an ancient and lost civilization having created these tunnels to be an entertaining theory.

Except for the small fact that if those tunnels were caused by warming, the warming is coming from UNDERGROUND, and not from the atmosphere.

Hidden Volcanoes Melt Antarctic Glaciers from Below

By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor | June 09, 2014 03:01pm ET

at 4:10 p.m. ET.

Antarctica is a land of ice. But dive below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and you'll find fire as well, in the form of subglacial volcanoes.

Now, a new study finds that these subglacial volcanoes and other geothermal "hotspots" are contributing to the melting of Thwaites Glacier, a major river of ice that flows into Antarctica's Pine Island Bay. Areas of the glacier that sit near geologic features thought to be volcanic are melting faster than regions farther away from hotspots, said Dustin Schroeder, the study's lead author and a geophysicist at the University of Texas at Austin.

Underwater volcanoes, not climate change, reason behind melting of West Antarctic Ice Sheet

By James Maynard, Tech Times | June 10, 10:43 PM

Melting of a major glacier system in western Antarctica may be caused by underwater volcanoes, and not by global climate change, according to new research.

Thwaites Glacier, a massive outlet for ice that empties into Pine Island Bay, is flowing at a rate of one-and-a-quarter miles per year. The bay opens up into the Amundsen Sea.

The Thwaites Glacier has been the subject of scrutiny by climatologists in the last few years, as new information about the severity of the melting becomes available. Traditional models had assumed heating from subterranean sources was fairly even around the region. New data provides details about areas where little was previously known.

University of Texas researchers studied how water moves underground in the region. They found liquid water was present in a greater number of sources than previously believed, and it is warmer than estimated in previous studies.

BTW, do remember that the Icelandic volcano just erupted recently and before the eruptions when the earthquakes started, steam was rising from the floor around the volcano showing signs that a lava plume was moving upwards and causing those earthquakes.

I am not going to say I believe these other site's but this is worth throwing into the discussion though it is probably sensationalized lies, but what if?.

I do believe it is possible that ancient intelligence long before we are supposed to have existed may once have walked upon this earth and indeed it is possible that at that time Antarctica was prime real estate.

I also do believe that IT was not the Submarine bunker's in france, I am well aware of those pen's the allied threw everything we had at them and they held up though the roof did buckle and they were BUILT not discovered by the german's at the opposite end of the world, doenitze was a sailor and an admiral so france was only down the street to him not the opposite end of the world, so it is not out of context what grand admiral Doenitze said at all but it would be if he was talking about france, it is not irrational either if you read up on operation high jump it was a genuine military expedition to antarctica not a scientific one, check it out it did happen, submarice, destroyer's, aircraft carrier with figher plane's, armed marine's and flying boat's as well as a helicopter, they were supposed to be there for up to two years and longer than they were, they had radar but something sank a ship and it was not an ice berg they knew how to look for them with recon flight's and submarine recon, an eyewhitness (Survivor) testimony talks of flying disc's attacking them and downing corsair's with a beam weapon and sinking the ship as well as how fast it went down.

Byrd beat a hasty retreat after suffering severe losses he mentioned air craft that could fly from one pole to another in hours so they may have thought him a security risk and it was common practice to use psychotropic mind altering hallucinogenic compound's to alter the memory's of certain people in positions of power with sensitive information, this was suggested in the film about fake moon landings Capricorn one and was actually standard CIA and KGB practice so if byrd came out with Agartha story's afterward's there is an alternative explanation to explain that, remember also members of the surviving ships crew from the philedelphia experiment were supposedly incarcerated in mental ward's after the experiment went awry.

Let's look at another fact six months after Byrd retreated well ahead of schedule with his tail between his leg's there was a seismic event from that region of antarctica originating from beneath the ice.

Plausible scenario's.

The nazi's retreated to south america and at least one of there own nuclear device's that they had continued to develop was detonated to destroy there base and hide there trail.

A special forces unit entered the area after byrd with the assumption they could bypass were a massive assault fleet had failed and they planted a nuclear device (one problem contemporary deviced were on the order of tonnage in weight so not portable), alternatively they detonated something else and the blast was large enough to register on seismomiter's.

Think on this after the war there was a scramble for nazi scientists to help both side's and this was the real start of the cold war, an enclave of Nazi scientists would be one of the most prized find's and so would there research so they would stop at nothing to secure it ahead of the other side.

If the Nazi's had ancient technology this also would be a coup for either side.

A battle fleet to Antarctica.

So does that make it plausible enough because it most certainly is.

That would be a probable natural cause for the seismic event as well, yes antarctica has active volcanoes under the ice.

I would love to go explore those tunnels! But I'd bring guns, just in case it's the location of an ancient game between aliens and monsters. Alien vs. Predator style!

Jokes aside, I find this seriously fascinating. What caused it? Earth, people? I hope they look more into it. I'd like to keep up with this.
