Surprise lesson from a near-death experience

Those who’ve had a near-death experience (NDE) speak of a life review where they are shown the impact of their words and actions on everyone and everything around them.  To their surprise, seemingly small insignificant things they’ve done in life sometimes are more highly valued in the spirit world than big things. Here is an example from one man’s NDE that is included in the book “The Purpose of Life” by David Sunfellow. – The editor

“One example of my life review was when I was a little kid.  We were traveling by car and stopped somewhere along the way.  There was a river not far from the road and I was asked to go and bring some water in a bucket from that river.

 “I went to fill up the bucket, but on my way back, I felt that the bucket was way too heavy for me.  I decided to empty some of the water to make the bucket lighter.  Instead of emptying the water right there, I noticed a tree that was alone by itself in a dry patch of land.  I took the effort to go out of my way to that tree and emptied some of the water at the tree base. I even waited there a few seconds to make sure the water is soaked in the soil and is absorbed.

“In my life review, I received such an applaud and joy for this simple act that it is unbelievable.  It was like all the spirits in the universe were filled with joy from this simple act and were telling me ‘We are proud of you.’That simple act seemed to be one of the best things I had ever done in my life!

“This was strange to me, because I didn’t think this little act was a big deal and thought I had done much more important and bigger things.  However, it was shown to me that what I had done was extremely valuable because I had done it purely from the heart, with absolutely no expectation for my own gain.” - Mohammed Z



MARS - “They blew the whole thing up!”
By Mary Joyce, website editor

John E. Brandenburg
, earned his PhD at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories and is a senior propulsion scientist at Orbital Technologies.  He has worked for Sandia National Laboratories and the Strategic Defense Initiative often called the “Star Wars” Defense.  His books include: “Death on Mars” ● “Life and Death on Mars” ● “Beyond Einstein’s Unified Field” ● “Atom Wars on Mars” ● “Dead Mars – Dying Earth” ● “Cosmic Jesus.”

They blew the whole thing up! The bastards blew it all up,” John E. Brandenburg sobbed when he fully understood the data collected by NASA’s Viking Mission to Mars.  Not only did the mission obtain high resolution images of the planet’s surface, it collected samples from its surface and atmosphere.

In his book “Death on Mars,” Brandenburg provides the Viking data and explains it all in detail.  If you have a scientific mind and an interest in Mars, you will enjoy the read.  But for everyone else, there are four important points he makes in his book.

FIRST, the Viking Mission collected convincing data and photographs showing that Mars was similar to Earth at one time with lakes, rivers, an ocean and breathable air.

SECOND, there is evidence there once was intelligent life and an advanced civilization on the red planet.

THIRD, there is evidence of thermonuclear explosions on Mars that destroyed everything including the planet’s water and atmosphere.

When Brandenburg showed a fellow scientist the data on the level of Xenon 129 on Mars, the man’s reaction said it all.  He frowned and looked troubled and then said, “Somebody nuked them. That’s what the Xenon 129 super-abundance means.”

FOURTH, Brandenburg hopes this and his other books will serve as warnings that nuclear weapons could destroy Earth just like they decimated Mars.



Farmers find ancient world beneath their ponds
By Mary Joyce, website editor

When four Chinese farmers drained several ponds on their land, they discovered five manmade caverns hidden beneath the ponds.  Eventually, a huge 2000-year-old complex of 24 grottoes spanning an area of 320,000 feet was discovered. Some of the grottoes are huge, reaching a height of 98 feet.  Notice the size of the people in the first photo below and the intricate bas-relief carvings in the others.

There is a great variety of cavern designs, plus well-engineered bridges, skylights, tunnel-like hallways, gutters and water systems in the grottoes.  For the most part, the grotto complex remains an enigma even 29 years after the discovery was made in 1992.  To learn more and see more photos, type Longyou Caves in your search bar.

At least 27 “new” Ancient Maya ruins found

Remnants of the ancient Maya civilization have been hidden for centuries beneath heavy vegetation and rainforests. Now, thanks to airborne LIDAR technology, they are emerging for all to see.

Takeshi Inomata, PhD, with the University of Arizona, uses the airborne LIDAR technology as a detective tool to find Maya ruins hidden beneath heavy vegetation in Central and South America. Remarkably, he finds them by using his desk computer.

The last we read; he had located 27 ancient sites that were previously unknown.

It took archaeologists 20 years on foot to survey nine square kilometersat Caracol, but with airborne LIDAR, 200 square kilometers were mapped in about six days and with better resolution.

ABOUT LIDAR – The simplest explanation is that LIDAR measures distances by illuminating the target with laser light and then measures the reflection with a sensor to create 3-D digital images. The first prototype was built in 1961 by Hughes Aircraft Company which built the first laser a year earlier. Ten years later, NASA used LIDAR to map the Moon during the 1971 Apollo 15 mission.



City of legends found in Honduran jungle
By Mary Joyce, website editor

This 2017 article is being reposted because, like the previous article, it is about using LIDAR technology to find ancient ruins hidden beneath tropical jungles.  In this case, the ruins were discovered in Honduras.

It’s hard to fathom, but it wasn’t until 2012 that scientists found the exact location of a long-lost legendary city known as Ciudad Blanca (White City) or City of the Monkey God.  

The ancient ruins have been hidden for centuries beneath the dense Honduran jungle and protected by deadly creatures that make the region uninhabitable for humans: the Fer de Lance snakes, some of the deadliest in the world; mosquitos carrying malaria; sandflies that transmit White Leprosy that eats away people’s faces; jaguars and a host of disease-carrying insects and parasites.  Then there are torrential rains and killer mudholes.

Beyond these life-threatening obstacles, the Ciudad Blanca ruins are so covered by jungle growth that an archaeologist could walk over them and never know they were there.  It took laser-imaging technology to find the lost city of Honduras.

In June 2012, a team of scientists flew over the area where legends say the lost city is located.  They flew at a steady elevation and in a systematic pattern while using LIDAR equipment to shoot billions of laser pulses at the ground. The end result was a 3-D digital map of the topology beneath the thick jungle canopy.  Below is one of the LIDAR images that reveals manmade structures that were impossible to see from the plane.

In 2015, an exploratory team of researchers finally macheted their way into the formidable jungle.  Below are photos of three of the hundreds of artifacts archaeologists eventually found, and continue to find, at the site.

You can learn about the adventure finding Ciudad Blanco in Douglas Preston’s new book “The Lost City of the Monkey God” which was just published in 2017.

The faces of top QANON leaders
By Mary Joyce, website editor

The Internet phenomenon QANON, which came on the scene in 2017, has fueled many conspiracy theories that have influenced national politics and inspired social rebellions in the United States.  So, we wanted to see the faces of the top leaders of QANON. We found they are the father-son team of Jim and Ron Watkins who are shown in the above photos.

The Watkins’ Internet channel QANON is the outlet for anonymous messages from someone described as a high-level military intelligence official known as “Q Clearance Patriot.” Followers of QANON simply call him “Q.”  However, some of those who have been deeply involved with QANON, and other anonymous imageboard channels such as 4chan, 8chan and 8kun, say Jim Watkins is actually “Q.”

But the more we learned about these two QANON leaders, we had to wonder why so many people are paying attention to them.

According to ABC News researchers, Jim Watkins’ military records show he joined the U.S. Army at age 18 and served from 1982-1999.  He first worked as a helicopter mechanic and later as a recruiter.  In 1994 he achieved the rank of sergeant first class.

The researchers also obtained Watkins’ immigration records in the Philippines that revealed he arrived in Manila in October 2001, just weeks after the 9/11 attacks, and has lived there ever since.

Then according to “Splinter News,” Jim Watkins told them the U.S. Army sent him to a computer training school in Virginia and while still in the military he launched an Asian porn website.

We found almost no information about Ron Watkins, the son, other than he is said to be a cyber analyst and administrator for his father’s Internet projects and appears to be half Asian.
