This is just a general interest thread but I hope to see some of our Philippines based members perhaps give there opinion.

First to ATS I have put this in the Ancient and Lost civilization category but it may be better moved to another catagory, It may even fit into the hoax category but I leave that to your discretion, personally I believe it fall's squarely into urban legend's but is a kind of on land other world that is supposed to exist hidden from normal human observation, you can not find it unless you are lost and accidentally stumble on it, missing time, portals and abduction are all a feature of this story, alien colony, other dimensional or time displaced city, other species of human or alien that look a lot like us are also all features.

There is an urban legend of the ghostly or other dimensional type which I stumbled on in my usual jaunt through youtube during a particularly bored moment so I checked on ATS and there is no thread that come's up under search for Biringan.

In the Philippine island's on the Island of Samar there is a legendary city that those that believe in it are actually fearful of, this city is said to be ultra modern with it's inhabitant's having only one noticeable difference to normal human being's and that is the lack of a filtrum between there nostril's and there mouth.

They are said to live in absolute luxury with apartments in there building's that have automatic climate control, drive expensive cars - even from our world which they apparently have a taste for and even to abduct normal human being's on occasion to be used as servants or mates.

Though many claim to have seen this city, black road's, black building's, black everything and though there are warning's not to eat black food derived from this legend on the island because if you do you will be taken to Biringan and though there are periodically according to these suspect youtube videos.

Anyway I am far from an expert on any field so this is just for you to peruse and perhaps have a discussion about, it make's a great break from the politics and doom and gloom, Hey this made me think of perception filters were a superior civilization could live right here on earth and we human's could be actually blind to it and other reality's intruding into our own a little like the Hi Brasil etc.

Anyway good general mystery for ATS to break the monotony of miserable and frightening doom porn and politics.
Now while I don't believe this I do love this type of mystery and who know's, it could just be very real indeed.
If real, other dimension, demon city, alien colony or hybrid alien colony, or just an urban legend you decide.

This also made me think of the Celtic land of the young, a mysterious realm in some other place that mortal's can not just journey too but must be brought too that lives outside of time as well as UFO abduction's etc.
Another world right beside us that we are somehow controlled to not be able to see or interact with unless it wishes us too do so.

Anyway Enjoy, winge about watching youtube videos' that you regard as rubbish, debunk or believe, all the same to me but I hope this become's interesting.

Reminds me of the hidden mythical dimensional city of K'un L'un from the Iron Fist comics/TV show though it was hidden somewhere in China. Every 15 years, it's portal to Earth will appear.

It could even be a modern myth inspired by modern pop culture but from some of the tale's it sound's like an entrenched myth so may actually be very old a little like Celtic other world mythology or Iceland's little people and elves.
Just thought you folk's may enjoy as a break from the normal vein of thread's these day's.
It would be cool and disturbing though if it could be real and perhaps someone else can find some more high quality account's.

Do you think it's possible the leaders of the TPTB came from such cities? In the Iron Fist TV show, some members of K'un L'un went rogue to form a secret society called the Hand which is a ninja society that has infiltrated governments and corporations.

These members have the powers of immortality and have been around in Earth for centuries.

There are rumors that in the very top of the TPTB, are people who may not human at all or humans with immortality.

Well it does have that shangri la type feeling to the story, hidden city's and even a hidden civilization right beside us all the time may actually be a reality but I am thinking on a slightly different dimension to us, one that can perhaps overlap our own reality from time to time and perhaps they have the ability to come here or to harvest from our reality, immortality well they don't sound entirely human but according to these tale's there are half human's whom have a parent whom is native to that other place, I once read a book that said that one Chinese parable say's the most cunning creature is the one no man has yet seen (or realized he was seeing).

You know I have a weird theory: What if the leaders of North Korea and the Emperor of Japan are descended from such creatures of the cities?

The Kim Dynasty and the Emperor of Japan are said to be divine and that got me thinking, what if somewhere in the distant past their ancestors married such supernatural creatures?

It was said Kim il Sung was a divine man who took a mortal body while the Emperor of Japan was descended from the Sun Goddess Amaterasu.

It may explain why their people portrayed them as divine and why people feared them.

Thank you for posting. I cannot watch videos right now but will try to later and return with some comment. In the meanwhile I will try and keep track of user comments to stay updated.

I've never heard of this site but it sounds interesting, this is the type of stuff I come to ATS for. The part that really caught my attention was the lack of filtrum/philtrum between mouth to nose. I have heard a similar description of humanoid type beings but can't remember where exactly...will try to dig up that brain cell if it still exists.

Local folklore from foreign lands are always a pleasant read.

what a load of bs
i never ever have heard of anything like this, however everthing points to it not being an urban legend but an internet legend, probally created by people that dont even reside in that country

Maybe, maybe not that is why I want some actual Philippino members to pass there opinion's, it does fit the usual other dimension and even ghost reality's.

Now as you also know with your own interest in Ufology some UFO's have been seen to pass right through solid rock, even fly into the ground or through a mountain as if it was not there, this was a gift for early debunking skeptics whom pointed out that it could not be a real object but of course that was before our current understanding of quantum mechanic's and multiverse theory's.

What if they are real, what if it is more to do with some rogue EM field there technology is producing and in some other reality Cern and the LHC are just popping up then vanishing like a ghost with local's convinced it is something spooky.

Portal's are actually a very old staple of mythology and only later did science speculate on the possibility of creating such but in this case this would not be a portal but rather something causing two divergent reality's to coincide for a time at specific but random local's and only when certain environmental conditions' are met, the fact it is most often seen at night for example could be photon's leaking between dimension's which we know they do all the time in the aperture slit test and the full interference pattern that a split photon always produces.

So I would not write it off entirely, remember there are similar tales from all around the world, a modern city though is a new one on me, off the top of my head there is a famous account of a couple in France whom found an old guest house and stayed there the night, the people were lovely but when they tried to find it again they simply could not, intent on finding it they asked around and were told that no such place existed but one had about 20 or more years before, it's owner's long since passed on, other account's such as tourists thinking they were seeing re-enactment's when visiting palatial mansion's with people in period costume only to mention it and be told that no such enactment had taken place.

Ghost story's about a guy who picked up a young woman and as he drove passed a cemetery he looked back and she had vanished, this had happened to many people and apparently were they picked her up she had been killed, Her former body was buried in that same cemetery, on and on and on.

Now what if despite the nay sayer's there was once a great civilization similar to our own on this earth, a former race of sentient being's - Humanoids or even human's whom needing a new race may be why we came into being since only by being extinct did they actually cease to be.

You know how observation changes the state of reality according to quantum theory, what would happen if an entire city had been wiped out instantly and completely but there soul's were still there, what if they somehow retained this quantum ability which seem's to be a function of consciousness and that would of course mean they were conscious being's, so there collective will forced there city to still exist in some quasi reality state just not in the real world but bordering it like a massive soul trap in which they were all stuck or chose to stay, what if Biringan and other's similar tales are actually examples of this and this city if the story has any reality at all which it may not or it may was then actually a ghost manifestation of millions of soul's whose end had happened in an instant leaving them in a state of neither life nor death but a quasi living state in which they dwelt within a projected reality (assuming ours is not one itself and we are not the ghost in this supposition).

Perhaps we are both ghosts, two projected reality's that sometime's overlap due to a shared consciousness frequency or one that is very close between our two races whom may actually be both dead and living on as soul's in projected reality's

Of course we are alive but this is just a what if and it is great to have you join the thread.

It sounds like a Filipino version of an elven city, overall. Most interesting, how many cultures have tales of this nature! That there are also "hybrids" mentioned is also fascinating.

During WW2 the Japanese buried enormous amounts of gold and jewels on the Philippine islands. They could not get it back to Japan due to American submarines. After the war the OSS took over removal of the treasure (called the Golden Lily treasure or Yama#a's gold). This is well documented in a book by the latter name by 2 authors named Seagrave.

It may be possible there was a cave filled with treasure that became an operating base for the CIA. Local tales and legends were carefully spread around to keep the place a secret and deter curiosity seekers. There's a lot of jungle in the Philippines and it would be easy to hide things there.

Sounds like a High Brazil type scenario type scenario.

Interesting stuff all the same.

I remember that there was a theory that Marcos had gotten to it as well.
The Japanese got away with some pretty horrendous crime's even after the war was over simply because they had not signed the Geneva convention but just like the Nazi's they looted and stole from all the country's they invaded - especially those they claimed they were liberating.
I wonder, we have not hear'd much about that other potential gold stash in the last year, that one which was potentially still aboard a Nazi Train in Poland buried deep but I should not be too surprised if there were still stashes to be discovered from both the Nazi's and the Japanese.

a reply to: LadyGreenEyes

That's my take on it, reality is of course subjective and people will often believe some pretty outlandish thing's which is not to say they are not correct but for example there is that large stone in Iceland were the Elves live, they left it after a couple of accidents while building a new road and instead of removing it split the road so that it now goes around both sides of the stone with this huge boulder left in situ.
There are many such tale's, the Gentry (not to be mixed up with English Nobility, same word different meaning) of the Celt's whom are closely related to the inhabitants of TyrNaNog and the Wee folk whom are believed in by both the Celt's and the Nordic people's including of course the Icelanders, the Eskimo and Inuit of course have there own in the form of the dangerous strangers and the Arab's have there Jinn (Prefer whisky myself but actually I seldom drink as it tend's not to agree with me but still when you open a bottle strange thing's can and will happen - sorry could not resist) and indeed all people's around the world have a belief in an other world, sometime's all around us and sometime's in another place were they believe there afterlife is but quite often these two views are not mutually exclusive.

The fact is though and despite our modern science and technology we can not quantify the un-quantifiable, we can not feel beyond our sense of touch, see beyond our sense of sight, hear beyond our sense of hearing or know beyond our knowledge and we have only dipped our toe into a truly huge ocean of reality, we simply can not know it all and there is and will always be more to the universe than we can know, in the words of the Bard, There are more thing's in Heaven and Earth Horatio than are dreamed of in your philosophy, that goes not only for Horatio but for all of us and definitely for myself.

Also there is the simple fact that reality for each and every one of us is actually very slightly different, in some cases radically so and being human we like to project our own personal understanding of the world upon what other's describe, who is really to say what reality is for another person, for me it is the real day to day world but I find this hugely interesting, we all do I think.

Unclear how comments from 'humanoidlord' are helpful, unless this person is sort of oracle who knows everything.
For me, a point of this website is to discover info on a range of topics, I've never come across.
So thank you LabTech for that - star & flag. I like your strategy of finding actual people from that country to ask what they know. Perhaps there is a Philipines forum somewhere that you can dig more information up from?

i dont want to sound offensive , labtech is an cool man, however i have researched the paranormal for years and i have never ever heard of this story wich sets my bs meter pretty high

I have to admit I only heard about it like I say after being particularly bored and searching Youtube for anything, now youtube is not a reliable source as is often quoted on this site but that does not mean it is wrong and that is exactly why I wanted some with longer knowledge of the region and the culture to chirp in, Now VengefulGhost say's his Filipino housekeeper told him about it years ago, so there is some meat to the story after all but how much?.

That said I have to point out that you are far from the only one here that has studied the paranormal, ghost activity, poltergeist activity, time slip's, aport's (that is spiritual teleportation of objects and sometime's even people not to be confused with Ooparts and hint's at spiritual realm's being linked to quantum mechanics) etc, etc.
