So I was listening to the most recent episode of the Mysterious Universe Podcast.

The latter half of the episode the host started getting into the weird layout of Canberra Australia and how some people were making outrageous claims that the geometric layout of Canberra creates portals into other worlds allowing devas and various other entities to more easily cross over into the physical plane.

They further elaborated on the episode that the Chicago architect Walter Burley Griffin had connections to the theopsy movement and possibly gained his plan for Canberra in some sort of trance state. Walter Burley Griffin’s design was selected from all the other choices for Canberra.

In April 1911 the Australian Government held an international competition to produce a design for Canberra, its new capital city. Griffin produced a design with impressive renderings of the plan produced by his wife. They first heard about the competition in July, while on honeymoon, and worked feverishly to prepare the plans. On May 23, 1912, Griffin's design was selected as the winner from among 137 entries. This created significant press coverage at the time and brought him professional and public recognition. Of his plan, he famously remarked: "I have planned a city that is not like any other in the world. I have planned it not in a way that I expected any government authorities in the world would accept. I have planned an ideal city – a city that meets my ideal of the city of the future."

At the time Parliament House was designed, Burley Griffin was associating with people in the theosophical movement, an occult society started in the 19th century that sought divine wisdom through contact with God and other spiritual beings.


So after hearing this it was off to the internet to do a little research. I had never actually seen Canberra but once I looked at some pictures I was pretty impressed and there definitely did seem to be a lot of knowledge of sacred geometry tied into the capitals design. Up until this point I was only familiar with the layout of DC having much hidden symbolism but it seems that Australia's capital is very steeped in esoteric symbolism as well.

Anyone from Australia feel free to chime in if you have any stories or have been to the capitol and feel free to share your experiences whether out of this world or mundane.

They built Parliament House underground so all of the Political bunnies would be happy.

We don't take these bunnies very seriously.

It is just a city after all.

We have sacred places in our country ... this is not one of them.

Interesting layout! I was unaware of this one, thanks for making a thread about it.

We see all of the various mathematical shapes, angles, ratios, and proportions throughout the natural world. Mathematics appears to be the fundamental framework, structure, and organizational quality that existence adheres to and follows. Since geometry works so well in the natural kingdom, perhaps applying geometry to the planning of a city may be a positive point. It sure draws the eye and one's fascination, just as any good piece of art.

What a fascinating design. The first picture I saw was a Satellite view of Parliament It looked like it had earth covering it.
I couldn't quite make out what I was seeing until I saw some ground photos of the structure.

If you really want to go down a fringy rabbit hole.........Trolls of Black Mountain?

It has two aspects. The newest and most obvious is the space needle. Telecom tower is a major structure that literally hums with power. A power that seems to attract interstellar intelligence. The Mount Stromlo observatory complex also contains interstellar intelligence but it is intellectually stimulating. Interstellar activity on Black Mountain operates more at the emotional and will levels of our human consciousness. The second aspect is old. Black Mountain has entry and exit portals to the underworld to an area occupied by beings that can be called trolls if you wish to give them human characteristics. They are dark and feed off our human need and desire to control situations. This implies that they respect money, and they do. The radiations from Telecom Tower enlivens them, making them jumpy and overactive. Troll portals are all around Black Mountain, on Action and Black Mountain peninsular, in the city centre, in the Botanical Gardens. The Portals open and close, why I am not sure, perhaps this relates to times of the day, the weather or astrological circumstances. They also seem to be strengthened and weakened by Feng Sui considerations and human activities. Electricity has made trolls overactive and in combination with radio waves has given them the opportunity to live above ground. Electro Magnetic Radiation is a force in which they live and so as we increasingly become exposed to EMR our bodies increasingly become possessed by Trolls. Cancer is one of their effects. The popularity of the Goth movement is an indication of how far trolls have penetrated into our social life. All this is happening now as human, troll, deva and other beings are finding new balances in our electronic age. But enough digression. Black Mountain protects but at a price. It robs Canberra of some of its humanity but is jealous and protective of its sphere of influence. This gives stability of place. Black Mountain has strong links to the surrounding hills.

This is something that is quite common. There have been numerous books written on the sacred geometrical patterns of several nation's Capitols. Washington DC
I am sure this applies to many cities, not just Capitols. It's rather an interesting topic

What I find fascinating though is Canberra is a relatively young city in comparison to say DC or the much older London and That it was primarily designed by one Architect who had ties to Frank Lloyd Wright and seemed to be influenced by the Theosophical movement.

Haha, this could explain why most Australians hate the place. Seriously, I'm from the US but here in Canberra studying at The Australian National University (just north across the lake and on the west side from the capital building). I get to hear all about how boring the city is from people - it is in many ways. As a student, it's actually an awful city to study in because about 99% of cafes close by 5pm - Especially for a city that is roughly 50-50 students and government employees.

Anyhow, I know the city was planned by ole' Burley Griffin, but I had never heard of the (supposed) connection between other dimensions and entities, etc. I would venture to say some of this is a bit ludicrous because Lake Burley Griffin is an even *more* modern lake than the city itself - it was originally a rather narrow river. In fact, it was damned up downstream around the 50's or 60's and flooded, creating that lake you see today. That obviously means that while a lot of the geometry in Burley Griffin's design is still applicable, a bunch of things were created (semi-)naturally after the fact. (You can find pictures of pre-flooding and underwater pictures of some of the houses that are forever residing in the lake if you search around).

The worst part about the design of the city is that it is very confusing for people, especially newcomers. If you want to go from A to B, the fastest path is usually a zig-zag due to all the curved roads. On the flip side, it is a very woody, forested city, and if you like the outdoors, it's a great place for biking and hiking up either Black Mountain or Mt. Ainslie. Lots of great hiking farther from the city as well.

Yeah I think the podcast is out of Sydney and they mentioned how Australians either love or deeply loath Canberra.

Most Australians view it as a place to build up their resume and increase their security clearance so that they can get a good job where they are from (or elsewhere, if they want to move). So, it is a very transient city in many ways. People generally live here 2-5 years, but go home between the school/parliament season. Lots of people who do this and are from Sydney will go home weekly or biweekly (or as they say here - fortnightly!). Basically, just can't stand being here longer than necessary.

Back on topic with this thread, however - I feel like the city is not at any type of natural energy vortex (or whatever the proper term is). It was a city which was effectively forced into creation due to Sydney and Melbourne fighting over being the capital and the outcome of their "negotiation". Furthermore, planning the city was a bit forced also. Although a few people lived in the area back then, it was not a city, to be sure. And people didn't settle here largely until the design was created - due to the need and desire to have the capital in Canberra.

While the design is interesting, and very beautiful in many ways, I'm rather skeptical of it either causing or aiding some type of dimensional gateway/vortex. Who knows, though...! I'll try to get to the podcast today and follow up regarding their claims.

Most Aussie school kids in grade 5-6 do a school camp to the capital as a kind of study tour, you visit parliament, national gallery, supreme court etc etc etc.

I was about 12 when I went and we got tours of every building or plce we visited but 1 thing from all those tours stuck in my brain and I can still remember it.

In WBGs original plans only 1 thing was changed, the place where parliament sits now was originally meant to be called the peoples hill and parliament was always meant to be at the foot of that hill.
The tour guide (official tour guide) told us the reason for the design and layout of the streets was meant to drive all the power to the peoples hill and symbolically parliament was at the foot of the people.
Apparently thats the officially reason for the design and the reason it was chosen, in 1981 when they started building on that hill the government symbolically took a massive dump on all Aussies heads.

It stuck out in my young mind for the reason that I kind of acquainted it with magic, I hadnt heard the term yet but I always had a fortean bent to my mind and the reasons they gave for moving it after I heard that story just didnt fit, magically or even metaphorically taking away that gesture was just wrong and seemed deliberate.

The Gov claimed that Old Parliament was never meant to be permanent and after looking around for 60 odd years they decided the best place to build it was on this nice big empty hill right behind them

I somehow reckon that if the original builders of Parliament had of been looking for somewhere different to build it they probably would have noticed that hill themselves and built it there to begin with but maybe thats just me.

If you come across any tunnels between Mt Stromlo and Parliament House then I would be interested. Right now Tony Abbott is Trolling anything is possible.

BTW all porn used to come from Canberra until recently

28 MAR 2015—20 SEP 2015 X-rated: the sex industry in the ACT Pollies, porn and pyrotechnics. The sex capital of Australia. Pornberra. Since the 1980s Canberra has been synonymous with sex in the minds of many Australians. Twenty years have passed since it became legal to sell X-rated videos in the Australian Capital Territory and the adult industry has gone through periods of growth, boom and, many would argue, bust. This exhibition explores the evolution of Canberra’s sex industry over the past 50 years.

I read that it's a big hub of the new world order in a thread called Australian conspiracies or something like that.

posted on Feb, 28 2017 @ 11:05 PM
On the episode of Mysterious Universe they actually reference Above Top Secret as One of there research sources.

Maybe this is the thread they were referring too since it was in their show notes.
Radio 666 Canberra, And the New World Order.

They also took some audio clips from this video by James Marcaron. He gives an occult tour around Canberra and makes some pretty out there claims.

ASK most Australians about Canberra and you’ll get little more than a yawn, with the capital known mainly for politics, peace and quiet. Yet there’s another side to the city, one filled with strange stories of underground bunkers, secret listening towers, a disappearing lake, ghosts, UFOs and a hairy beast. Mysterious tales first told by early Aboriginal Australians have re-emerged time and again, from 18th century European settlers all the way to present-day witnesses. Perhaps there are natural, or man-made, explanations for the eerie episodes right at the seat of government, but whatever the truth behind the myriad conspiracy theories, one thing is for sure: something weird is going on in Canberra.

phoenix358 in his post above is right, Canberra is not a sacred place.

However, the Theosophical occult geometry (only sacred to some) does seem to plug into something rather more interesting.

If your a dowser or can see, check out behind/below the occult geometry. There you will find a very old temple system that could loosely be called "Atlantian Era".

The temples are networked like beads on a string and this is like a global network.

Once you find those, check out beyond/below the temple system to what it plugs into.

That will be a very big energy centre, one of six globally. This centre predates sacred geometry and anything "Atlantian". I dislike using the word "Atlantian" because it is badly used and my suspicion is that the word is now theosophical centric. Might be important to the Theosophical world view, but that is just one of many. "meh".

Now this energy centre, for want of a better name, seems to work on the principal of "tension". One might say; the distribution of tension.

We think generally in terms of energy systems having nodes and a means of distribution like wires, switches etc.. The temple system is built like that, but not the energy system beyond/below.

The energy centre below is Elemental in the occult sense. One can definitely say the centre IS an elemental.

These six energy centres (Elementals) distribute tension to other elementals and so on. The tension is grounded in the violence of earthquakes, thunderstorms, volcanic eruptions and cyclones (hurricanes), etc..

If this elemental "plumbing" is fiddled with or tension diverted or blocked to build up one could conceivably affect the weather and cause earthquakes.

Now, Alice Bailey who was a Theosophist and authored a number of books, wrote one called A Treatise On White Magic. Been a while since I read that thing, but within she stated that "Australia was being held in reserve should the USA fail.". That is from the view of the Great White Brotherhood and their scheming.

My guess is if one blocked the plumbing in the right way, one could cause one or more of these six primary Elementals to "overload". Depending on how one "tinker's" with this system of Elemental Spirits could conceivably cause earthquakes and storms.

That is because a cyclone has a Spirit that just wants to offload tension untill it is spent. Same with thunderstorms and quakes. Just a natural Elemental planetary thing.

So, just what is the Great White Brotherhood up to in Canberra and possibly five other locations?

If the rumours about weather control and earthquake machines do indeed have a foundation as it indeed appears, then it may possibly be in Tesla trpe technology interfacing with this old energy system via the temple system.

Well if its to do with controlling weather, they built this city in the wrong place as we don't get cyclones, floods or earthquakes and no volcanoes, New Zealand is the closest for those. Our weather is mild to the rest of Australia, gets a little cold in winter, sleet and a tiny amount of snow is possible, otherwise one of the more stable climates.

'day myss427

Not sure if your referring to my post above or generally. But I'll clarify what I meant.

I'm over in WA and have been trying to figure out the odd cyclone seasons up north. Recently, I was watching a cyclone and tropical low on the BOM website. Saw some odd RADAR lines that pointed strait at the two systems, they decayed next day and then streamed off the storms that wreaked the power grid.

We have had some strange weather in the west Oz wheatbelt, 200mm the a couple of weeks later another 100mm. Both of those rains were off decaying tropical lows up north.

While I don't think RADAR "beams" from Port Headland are hitting tropical lows to stop them turning into cyclones. I am pretty sure something is affecting the weather systems up north and causing havock further south.

Yeah, I know Canberra's weather, no earthquakes, cyclones etc. But that set of storms that caused the blackouts was streaming down from the Kimberly.

Where I was suggesting the posiibility of violent events was further afield then Oz. There are six of those big Elemental energy centres globally. Canberra is just one. Another is below the Amazon. They are not isolated from each other either.

My concern is that people using Tesla tech or some other gadgets can cause problems for the Elementals and overload or unbalance the natural system. The increasing violence in earthquakes and storms over the last few decades may be the result of simply altering the atmospheric and terrestrial tensions.

Science and PTB might like the idea of controlling the weather, but I think they are really playing with fire here. The occultists and spiritual folk also have this odd idea that Elemental Spirits are controllable . . . .

At the moment someone is trying to teach themselves to control Elementals by using the equivalent of bashing them with a stick. The Spirits which are tropical lows and cyclones are getting hurt by something or someone. I can't quite pin it on anyone in particular at this point in time.

Yeah I get the impression that Canberra is an artificially created power spot to correspond to Australia's seat of power I'm sure the vibe there is way different then say the natural vibe at ayers rock.

I have been to DC and there is definitely something going on with the symbolism, architecture, and layout there but I never got a sacred vibe quite the opposite DC has a very restless feeling to it. I have been to places like Glastonbury tor in England which feel awesome and Mountains Like mount Mitchel here in the states and these places have a good natural vibe compared to some place like Washington DC.
