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.

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...

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.

Most likely moulin's, and not some wild conspiracy other than another grim warning that global warming is real.
Hidden Volcanoes Melt Antarctic Glaciers from Below

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.
