The whole place, (is an enormous area) is filled with puzzling appearances of ghosts, orbs, enigmatic people, ancient temples, caves, tunnels,
thrills, stories, from top to bottom since antiquity. Not to mention that was and is a favorable target of body snatchers. A lot of unaccounted and
important antiquities that has been lost and found in museums. personal collections etc it is rumored that had come from this place. Take note that
anomalous antiquity in ancient Greece doesn't exist in the terms we usually find in anomalous antiquity from other places like for ex. South America.
The anomaly consists in the description and relevancy of lore surrounding the artifacts, places of worship, beliefs, strange lore that feels like it
doesn't make sense. In this context the whole mythology and lore appears anomalous but presented in a humanized manner. Every bit of piece that feels
logical is usually interconnected and attributes its origins in seemingly illogical beliefs, not in the same context as we should regard general
ancient beliefs illogical, but it is presented in a structured way and with precision. Everything in it feels like it consists a huge enigma and if
you ever wanted to make sense out of it you have to wait for the right key for deciphering them.
For example take the myth of Castor and Pollux
. They are presented as twins yet from a
different father one God one mortal and one same mother. One was immortal and the other one was mortal, when both brothers later shared
half-immortality, having to remain partly in Olympus, partly in the normal world and partly in the underworld, taking the role of the guardian savior
of human travelers facing hardships. The same myth is interconnected with other logical and illogical beliefs that were also adopted not only by
Greeks but from Romans and all the way to the Celts. It is said they featured the Gemini constellation where the Pollux is the huge star we know (in
mythology Pollux father was Zeus and thous he was born as immortal)
Olympus mountain pretty much feels the same and if you feel like you can give a "logical" explanation, you end up thinking that you would were
better of in trying to find an exoplanet orbiting Pollux instead, for instance.
One time everything feels normal, one time lots of weird things happen, the next moment every perceived anomaly blinks out of existence, then at some
random time it happens again.
take careful notice, it is the best video I found in youtube about the following:
Passages, caves, temples, churches, crypts, secret pathways and lots of lore regarding mysteries (unfortunately non english)
