Large structures like these tend to fit into some basic forms and rarely if ever are built in a manner that does not fit one of those forms or categories. For example some of the architectural forms being used in the modern era are: parking ramp, stadiums - domed & open, warehouse, office & apartment building, civic center, casino, bridge, antenna, dam, water tower, house of worship, grain silo, convention center, theater, amphitheater, shopping mall, ice palace, Ferris wheel, oil refinery, space needle, wall, paper mill, wind farm, HARP array, barn, particle accelerator, greenhouse, radio telescope.

OK class, can anyone else think of any other basic architectural forms of large structures to add to this list and while your at it can anyone come up with any basic architectural form that these domed structures fit? I sure can't and while I haven't perused this entire thread I've yet to come across anyone who has matched these domed structures with any of the existing general architectural forms or categories.

I would agree that the closest match is a water tower but as another poster pointed out having a road run up it doesn't make sense from an engineering standpoint given the extra amount of structural support that would no doubt be needed to support vehicular traffic. That could be why no known water towers have roads running up their sides but instead do the sensible thing and simply run pipes to the tower's base where if needed vehicles can drive up to and access.
edit on 10-6-2011 by QtheQ because: I thought of and added more architectural forms but alas, still none that the domes in question will fit into.

There is the proof. Just some water tanks.


It doesn't look like proof to me. Your link refers to another link for details on the water tanks construction: www.gifford.uk.com... and on that page it states


Each of these has a capacity of 10 million gallons, a diameter of 80m and a storage height of 9m, with a heavily reinforced concrete base slab bearing onto prepared ground.

But after using the Google earth ruler function I come up with a diameter of about 124 meters for the domes in question on this thread. Additionally the article never mentions anything about any roads spiraling up their water towers; such a unique feature would surely be mentioned if it were a part of those water tower's construction.

I made this point about 10 pages ago on this thread but I think it bears restating: The planners of the world do not take lightly numerology when designing buildings and architecture. When they design such a structure as the Pentagon building, the pentagon shape is not chosen randomly or because they think it looks nice or it is an ideal utilitarian ideal shape. They, whoever 'they' are chose such a specific shape with a specific number of sides because there is a particular meaning known to all those power brokers for a given shape or number. That is because they all belong to the same fundamental secret society that recognizes the same numerological meanings worldwide.

Now getting back to the relevance to this thread, topping all of those domes is an octagonal shaped superstructure. The numerological meaning of the number eight and the octagon is that of rebirth and renewal. One might think then why was the octagon chosen for stop signs, given that they mean 'stop'. Well what do you do at a stop sign? Do you just sit there indefinitely? No, you wait for another automobile or pedestrian to cross, then you start again. A stop sign then is also a sign of renewal where you have begun your driving after pausing and waiting for you chance to go again. This is leading me to believe then, that these domes are the tops of an underground bunker where you stop your above ground activities and wait for the troubles to pass above ground and after they do pass you get out of the bunker and go again renewing the above ground civilization after Armageddon has passed.

The problem is of course that there is not enough room in these bunkers for the worlds population to fit. Only a select few elites and their families will be allowed to go. While they have put up some rather good fencing around the bunkers, the worst thing for the bunker planners would be for huge hordes of the great unwashed trying to break through the fences and making it nearly impossible for the chosen few elite's to get through once the end appears near. Therefore better than any fence as a defense against the masses is a disinformation campaign where every effort is made to steer clear from public knowledge the true nature of the bunkers. What better way to keep the hordes out than make them believe what they want and need doesn't exist there? And what a small price to pay to hire a few individuals to come onto a thread and ridicule with ad hominem attacks as tin foil hat wearers and flat earth believers anyone who thinks these structures are anything more than ordinary water tanks. And what a better way to nip a meme in the bud and prevent the masses from ever posting a sign on their jalopy that says "To 24.714502,54.984069 or Bust" and start on their journey by keeping them from believing that will be their land of milk and honey in the event of an end of the world as we know it scenario.

There is complete access to all the tanks the said rather good fencing is in a state of disrepair with many holes in it.? There are no watch towers about, armed guards in fact there are no security guards or patrols cameras or dogs, no electric fences or sensors about either???. The locals say the project is on hold because of the financial crisis because it was deemed an expensive agricultural project hence why the whole area looks deserted. Then we have the roads all in grid form around the bunkers??? setting the area out like fields rather than access roads to the tanks. Now how do i know this ??? because i took the time to go up and look at them!! weird how i managed to do all that take pics put them on the forum and guess what no knock on the door from the men in black????
Maybe i will be one of the chosen few who they will let in now i know their secret

They are oil pumping stations.The domes are just to protect the workers who are maintaining the facilities.

The pipe lines if you notice go under ground eventually.

I read some where that when they originally started exploring for oil in the area they laid out and mapped grids so they could figure out where they were and where the oil was found at.

That is what you see.It took a lot of surveying to map the area and is the only feasible way of doing it in a environment where there is no landmarks.

The domes are just to protect the pumps from the harsh environment and the dust storms.

Not anything nefarious but must have been strange to see.

Fly from Phoenix to L.A. sometime.

You will see the base Patton's tanks trained at.

All the buildings are long gone but all the concrete slabs they sat on and the roads etc. are still visible.

Those tanks don't at all look like the domes from this thread, are not the same diameter, and don't have roads running up them. Additionally I don't believe even if an OP's original question is answered that that is typically considered a legitimate reason to close a thread.

What is remarkable to me is the number of posters who have emphatically stated that they know what these things are but have been unable to either present an engineering breakdown of the project, another example of such a structure anywhere else on the planet, a blueprint, a Wikipedia entry of what they are, or any other clear documentation of the nature of the domes by the owners or designers of the structures. I'll admit I don't know what they are. I suspect they are survival bunkers, but so far the only evidence, if you can call it that, I have for believing that, is derived from the symbolic significance of the octagonal shape of the structures on top of the domes.

No, do not close the thread. There are better expinations that keep popping up. These structures are still a mystery because of the inconsistancies in the supposed solutions. Now I am going for the oil pumping station theory and holding the fallout shelter theory in reserve. I have abandoned the water tank theory which might be a cover-up story.

One would think that the builder of these very unique structures would be proud of them and show a picture of the completed ones on the website. The absence of these pictures is really odd. They stated on the Gifford website that they were completed.

Hello all,

I understand this is an old thread in which I am only now coming across, however I believe this is of reasonable relevance to the topic and the OP if not already seen this he might find this interesting. As we all know the location of the underground circular buildings in the middle of the desert are in countries where US government and corporations have vested interest.

Therefore I present to you an eerily similar circular building located at area 51 (Top secret US facility in US)

Hi all i noticed today that the area in question to this thread has started to become very green and you can see things growing in the area. I was driving past on the highway so couldnt take any pictures but when i checked the area on Google maps you can clearly see the changes from the original pictures

Im still convinced the domes are to do with water pumping and irrigating the desert

That whole area is full of oddities. There is one area which I can't figure out what it is or why it was built that way, and then I also found something potentially funny and peculiar at the same time.

In any case, those dome-snailshells look very peculiar for water tanks. In fact, I think there is one actual water tank-looking structure in the area, but those odd domes..

They follow the vortex-shape that seems to be the basic building blocks of the Universe - look at galaxies, tornadoes, shellfish, snails, even smoke and waterflow - they always seem to try to form vortices. Even the human DNA helix is formed in a sort of spiral (but I don't know much about this, so correct me, if I am wrong).

The odd thing about this is, that it seems like some of them have a 'left' spiral, and others have a 'right' spiral (or vortex) shape. Also, the octagon superstructure has a small square shaped structure inside of it, but I don't know if it has any meaning.

As for the peculiar things I found, what do you think this is - a blimp? In a desert? Why? :




Here are the coordinates:

24°38'50.47"N
55° 7'14.47"E

Lots of peculiar things in that area.. would love to know what everything is and why it is like that. There's even one really pretty garden-type structure with lots of curvy shapes and circle shapes also. I could find them again later, perhaps.

The water tank theory is a sort of plausible one, in the same way that a weather balloon and swamp gas theories are plausible when it comes to UFO sightings.

There are some tanks like that in the movie "the Dictator". They do look like a secret nuclear arms manufacturing silo, but they are tanks.
