No it says across the bridge and there is defintely a bridge from George VI (i think) hotel which sits more or less on top of Edinburgh's main train
station Waverly. The bridge is over the railway not a river.
The Egyptians built many tunnels into pyramids as did others so there are a lot of very old tunnels out there.
Also during the Vietnam War the Vietcong lived in vast underground networks widely connected by tunnel.
Most old castles had/have escape tunnels - once built the builders were typically murdered (that's how you ensure no leaks -and don't think anything
Also if I was one of these elite and I wanted something done couldn't I just use some of the millions of people who 'disappear' as slave labour?
This is also a potential use for a lot of those off limits FEMA camps (probably not because I think that would leak) but if you are keeping slaves
underground, to work for you, would make more sense to keep them there.
Actually this is the theme of many stories over the years in fact going right back to tunnels to the underworld in ancient times and these beliefs
were pretty much worldwide - maybe before we advanced enough to be a danger to those who live below they used to be more open when they came up to
snatch slaves to work for them. Then as we learned to forge weapons and fight in an organised way they had to become more clandestine lest we hunt
Would explain a lot of the weird and wonderful over the years and yes I know I kind of changed track there from elites to underground beings (for want
of a particular stereotype) but my mind just flowed there. The underground beings could be any variety of things -
elite/atlanteans/starpeople/original people/chosen people/vampires/demons.
Anyway more on topic I think most of can agree there are secret bunkers and bases all over place mainly for the govt and top military but how many are
in private hands we have no idea and I include corporations in that.
Again we know people smuggling is a massive worldwide problem so could not a large private corporation buy them in by the tunnel full to build
whatever they want labour wise.
Specialists could be kidnapped to order and then a mangled body of a dead slave certified as them actually the more i think about this the more
conceivable i find it.
Lastly remember if there is a minority of beings be they human elite or 'underground beings' then they seem to think differently to us in that they
have little or no regard for the common person's life so have no compunction using us the way we have used animals for labour (often with no regard
for the animal in question especially historically and differs across the world)
So yes they could build vast networks of tunnels globally especially if they started 1000's of years ago and just top up the work force as required
while also maintaining genetic diversity.
Say one of these filthy ragged starving people does somehow elude security at the few surface exits and make it out (i would suggest extremely
unlikely) what would happen - whoever the lucky escapee was would be locked up for their own safety as clearly insane - babbling about being held as a
slave in an underground complex of potentially 1000's.
I am not saying I believe this to be true but I do find it (for now at least) a plausible theory with more work required to how there COULD be a
large/vast/global underground network.
Actually is there any way to 'look' underground with a particular wavelength by satellite and if so I presume it could be shielded from said
wavelength somehow, so even a global survey would not be definitive.
Ok time to get our picks out everyone
