Graham Hancock on how Pyramids were built The Travel Photographer UNESCO World Heritage List #: As for 19 Natural and Mixed Properties inscribed for geological values before 1994, criteria numbering of this property has changed. See Decision 30.COM 8D.1 4,000-Year-Old Burial Revealed on Welsh Island Linked to Mysterious Druid Sorcerers Excavations are underway on the 4,000-year-old Bronze Age burial cairn known as ‘Bryn Celli Ddu Bach’ on the British island of Anglesey, located off the north coast of Wales. Anglesey is famous for its association with the Druids, a mysterious order of Celtic sorcerers, healers and astrologers. The cairn sits within a complex ritual landscape that is rich with megalithic monuments and ancient structures. The North Wales Chronicle reports that the burial mound, which sets next to the famous, 5,000-year-old passage tomb of Bryn Celli Dhu, is under excavation until July 7. “The Bryn Celli Ddu site is a really complicated landscape, it appears to have been used as ritual landscape for thousands of years after it was first built,” Seren Griffiths, one of the dig directors, told North Wales Chronicle. The Celtic Druids arrived on Anglesey about two millennia after the construction of Bryn Celli Ddu, adding to the long and rich history of the island. The Mound in the Dark Grove By Joanna Gillan

Graham Hancock Reveals Mind Boggling Mysteries Of The Great Pyramid & Who Really Built It The Facts:Musk's SpaceX has begun launching satellites into Earth's orbit that will provide 5G infrastructure to the world. They will be launching hundreds more over the year.Reflect On:Are we acting too quickly on dangerous technology without safety testing? Are we as humans more connected to having the latest greatest technology than we are to our own health and wellness? SpaceX has already begun launching satellites into space, which are set to provide 5G internet to the world. The untested 5G plans of telecom companies around the world aim to install millions of cell towers on electric utility poles, public buildings, schools, bus stop shelters, in public parks, and anywhere else they want–including national parks and on federally owned land. There is no denying the technological upswing with 5G. But at what cost are we attempting to solve these issues, and why do competition and capitalism overrule the need for safety testing? “Wireless radiation has biological effects. Take Action

The 6 Creepiest Places on Earth It doesn't matter whether or not you believe in ghosts, there are some places in which none of us would want to spend a night. These places have well earned their reputations as being so creepy, tragic or mysterious (or all three) that they definitely qualify as "haunted." Places like... Aokigahara is a woodland at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan that makes The Blair Witch Project forest look like Winnie the Pooh's Hundred Acre Wood. What Niagara Falls is to weddings, Aokigahara is to suicide. More than 500 fucking people have taken their own lives in Aokigahara since the 1950s. The trend has supposedly started after Seicho Matsumoto published his novel Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees) where two of his characters commit suicide there. Also skulls. Besides bodies and homemade nooses, the area is littered with signs displaying such uplifting messages like "Life is a precious thing! "If you commit suicide here, bears will poop on your corpse."

The Bosnian Pyramid Complex: Larger, Older & More Mysterious Than Pyramids In Egypt The Facts:In 2005, a giant pyramid complex consisting of 11 structures was discovered in Bosnia. One of the structures is larger than the great pyramid. The majority of scholars who have been brought in to study it have little to no doubt that these are real.Reflect On:If these are indeed real and not mere natural formations, what are the implications? Pyramid structures bigger than Egypt, and also possibly much older than Egypt, would change everything we think we know about our past, and this is just one example. If the Bosnian pyramid of the sun is genuine, and there is very little doubt in my mind that it isn’t, then we are confronted with the highest structure in the world, and also the tallest pyramid in the world – Phillip Copens, author and pyramid expert. A few years ago, a discovery in Bosnia made headlines (2005) when it was announced that the world’s largest pyramid had been found near the town of Visoko, northwest of the Bosnian city of Sarajevo. Fascinating isn’t it?

Watch: Clap In Front of the Mayan Kukulkan Pyramid & It Mimics The Sound of the Quetzal Bird The Facts:An ex-model who was set to testify against Silvio Berlusconi in a bribery case and also was preparing to release a book alleging Berlusconi's Satanic practices died from what is currently believed to be “murder by radioactive poisoning.”Reflect On:As difficult as it is for many to fathom, is it perhaps necessary for us to acknowledge and confront the growing revelations of dark practices on the part of the global elite for the purposes of our own evolution? There are many people who don’t believe that the world’s elite have been religiously conducting Satanic practices in the bowels of their mansions and other private hideaways throughout history. Those doubters argue that if such a thing was happening, there would be no way they would have been able to keep it a secret all this time. Not that it’s a ‘secret’ any more to those truth-seekers who are open to this perception-bending reality. ‘I Met The Devil’ Poisoned But she never got to reveal her full story. The Takeaway
