You kept that one quiet, didn't you?!!!!!!!
if i was able i would love to visit Untersberg in person. Although i know this will never happen and this thread is as close as i will ever get.
Possibly related to that tale is the reported experience of a modern scientist, while attending a workshop in 1984. This meeting was a naval presentation [he was in at the time] and the subject matter was not very exciting. It was about 11am and well into the orientation lecture when the officer began to see the floor beneath himself and the other officers in the room becoming transparent. He was not asleep in any way, as he remembered every word of the lecture "loud and clear", but his experience of the "floor environment" was radically changing despite the above-the-floor scene remaining exactly the same. What he was now looking at below the floor was a set of apparent "connections" between every individual in the room with the back of a great animal --- yep, a dragon. Each man was attached to that great dragon through which seemed to flow an animating energy of life. He felt powerfully alive. The dragon, which seemed to extend forever, had a tiled/fitted scaly back composed of subtle jewel-like colors. It was "impossibly beautiful". Staring at the beauty, he then saw the beast writhe a bit, lift up its head, and momentarily stare back at him. The view of the dragon lasted several minutes until the floor again began "solidifying" and the vision was gone.

In my opinion, it is much more plausible than suggesting that all "dragon" sightings (there are many mentioned, including Kircher's) were simply "hallucinations" - whatever that means.
My first though was how the human eye has a blindspot, and the brain "fills in" the blind spot to complete the vision that our mind processes. Perhaps a similar "filling in" or artificial representation takes place when the subconscious detects powerful energy from the earth, that it cannot rationally explain?
Something as powerful as the huge chunk of mother nature that we inhabit, would need something huge and powerful to represent it in a vizualisation of the feeling, or energy that is detected by the subconscious. What better than a huge, flying, fire breathing monster?
Remind me, one day, to explain to you my theory of "Time", ghosts , and indeed, Timeslips
Admittedly, it's far easier to explain when standing next to a coiled hosepipe or cable, but i can try nonetheless.

Someone probably mentioned this- I am tired, and didnt read thru all of the posts.
Wasn't the original Pied Piper story set around Germany, and didnt he lead the children into a mountain, and they were gone for months or years or something? I cant remember, and I have to hit the hay.
