“On the way through the valley surrounded by snowy mountains, my host told us many tales about the Chud. It is remarkable that ‘Chud’ in Russian has the same origin as the word WONDER. So, perhaps, we may consider the Chud a wonderful tribe. My bearded guide told how ‘once upon a time, in this fertile valley lived and flourished the powerful tribe of Chud. They knew how to prospect for minerals and how to reap the best harvest. Most peaceful and most industrious, was this tribe. But then came a White Tzar with innumerable hordes of cruel warriors. The peaceful, industrious Chud could not resist the assaults of the conquerors, and not wishing to lose their liberty, they remained as serfs to the White Tzar. Then, for the first time, a white birch began to grow in this region. And, according to old prophecies, the Chud knew that it was the time for their departure. And the Chud, unwilling to remain subject to the White Tzar, departed under the earth. Only sometimes can you hear the holy people singing; now their bells ring out in the subterranean temples. But there shall come the glorious time of human purification, and in those days, the great Chud shall again appear in full glory.’

“Thus the Old Believer concluded. We approached some low stony hill. Proudly he showed me, ‘Here we are. Here is the entrance to the great subterranean kingdom! When the Chud entered the subterranean passage they closed the entrance with stones. Now we stand just beside this holy entrance.’

“We stood before a huge tomb encircled by great stones, so typical of the period of the great migrations. Such tombs, with the beautiful remains of Gothic relics, we saw in South Russian steppes, in foothills of the Northern Caucasus. Studying this hill, I remembered how during our crossing of the Karakorum pass, my sais, the Ladaki, asked me, ‘Do you know that in the subterranean caves here many treasures are hidden and that in them lives a wonderful tribe which abhors the sins of earth?’

“And again when we approached Khotan the hoofs of our horses sounded hollow as though we rode above caves or hollows. Our caravan people called attention to this, saying, ‘Do you hear what hollow subterranean passages we are crossing? Through these passages, people who are familiar with them can reach far-off countries.’ When we saw entrances to caves, our caravaneers told us,

‘Long ago people lived there; now they have gone inside; they have found a subterranean passage to the subterranean kingdom. Only rarely do some of them appear again on the earth. At our bazaar such people come with strange, very ancient money, but nobody could ever remember a time when such money was in usage here.’ I asked them, if we could also see such people. And they answered, ‘Yes, if your thoughts are similarly high and in contact with these holy people, because only sinners are upon the earth and the pure and courageous people pass on to something more beautiful.’

“Great is the belief in the Kingdom of the subterranean people. Through all of Asia, through the spaces of all deserts, from the Pacific to the Urals, you can hear the same wondrous tale of the vanished holy people. And even far beyond the Ural Mountains, the echo of the same tale will reach you. Often you hear about subterranean tribes. Sometimes an invisible holy people is said to be living behind a mountain. Sometimes either poisonous or vitalizing gases are spread over the earth, to protect some one. Sometimes you hear how the sands of the great desert shift, and for a moment disclose treasures of the entrances of subterranean kingdoms. But none would dare to touch those treasures. You will hear how, in the rocks, in the most deserted mountain ranges, you can see openings which connect with these subterranean passes, and how beautiful princesses once upon a time occupied these natural castles.

“From distances one might take these openings for eries, because all which belongs to the subterranean people is concealed. Sometimes the Holy City is submerged, as in the folk-lore of Netherlands and Switzerland. And there is folk-lore that coincides with actual discoveries in the lakes and along the sea coasts. In Siberia, in Russia, Lithuania and Poland, you find many legends and fairy tales about giants who lived at times in these countries but afterwards, disliking the new customs, disappeared. In these legends, one may recognize the specific foundations of the ancient clans. The giants are brothers. Very often the sisters of the giants live on the other shores of the lakes or the other side of the mountains. Very often they do not like to move from the site but some special event drives them from their patrimonial dwelling. Birds and animals are always near these giants; as witnesses they follow them and announce their departure.

“...The endless Kurgans of the southern steppes retain around them numerous stories about the appearance of the unknown warrior, nobody knows from whence. The Carpathian Mountains in Hungary have many similar stories of unknown tribes, giant-warriors and mysterious cities. If, without prejudice, you patiently point out on you map all the legends and stories of this nature you will be astonished at the result. When you collect all the fairy-tales of lost and subterranean tribes, will you not have before you a full map of the migrations?”

During the ‘Subterranean Worldcontroversy which filled the pages of AMAZING STORIES Magazine in the late 1940’s as a result of the writings of Palmer, Shaver and numerous readers who sent in their own contributions, a couple by the name of John & Dorothy de Courcy became involved as well. They had sent in a fictionalized novelette based loosely on the ‘Agharti’ legends, which was published in the magazine. Sometimes afterwards, in the Dec. 1946 issue of A.S. (p. 173), they submitted another letter describing a strange ‘response’ to their story:

“The most singular thing has happened and we are at a loss to offer an explanation. It might be a prank, but unless someone is willing to spend a good deal of money on a prank, it must be the truth!
“On July 29, a tall man wearing a long blue or black overcoat and a dark hat drawn down to conceal his face, went to a former residence of ours in San Francisco asking for us. He was told we had moved and the landlord tried to find a card bearing our forwarding address. Try as he might, he couldn’t, nor could he remember even the city, but he said he thought it was Portland. When told, the man answered, ‘I quite understand. If you find the address, kindly write them and say, “the man from Agharti” seeks them.’

“On August 5 he reappeared in Portland at an apartment house where we had once lived. Again our address was missing and again he left the same message, adding, ‘I bear a message for them from the King.’

“In both cases, after we had gone, our forwarding addresses were found and both landlords wrote to us immediately apologizing for their oversight. They said he impressed them so much they couldn’t forget him. Both of them misspelled Agharti in their letters.

“Who is the King? Can he be referring to the fabulous King of the World? The only solution we can suggest is to publish this letter with our address and hope that this time the man from Agharti, if he be such, will find us.

“—John & Dorothy de Courcy., 665 S. W. 113th Place., Seattle 66, Washington.”

As further evidence that not ALL subterran societies are of the insidious, reptilian or reptilian-controlled variety, we add the following revelations from ‘Commander X’, the mysterious anonymous U.S. Intelligence official who has revealed much about ‘inside’ government knowledge of alien civilization both beyond and beneath the earth. He is the author of the book ‘UNDERGROUND ALIEN BASES’, published by Tim Beckley’s UFO REVIEW-Abelard Press, N.Y. Mr. ‘X’ was apparently very familiar with the Subterranean-world controversies that surrounded AMAZING STORIES and related publications in the early years, which may explain his present position in U.S. Intelligence. He reveals the following subterranea-related accounts from South America:

“..Of all the countries on the face of the Earth, none is more mysterious, or less explored, than is Brazil. Miles upon miles of this country have never been set foot upon by white man. In these areas live whole tribes of savage Indians whose civilizations are said to be akin to those existing at the time of the Stone Age. Many of those who have dared venturing into these pockets of unexplored jungle have never come out. Perhaps the case of Colonel Fawcett will be familiar to readers as an example of what I mean. He supposedly was captured by a tribe of wild Indians while in search of a ‘hidden city’ said to be located in the confines of the dense jungle...


“Before his death, Dr. (Raymond) Bernard had sent this writer many personal letters regarding his findings related to... underground civilization(s). We quote from these communications in the following:

“’I arrived in Brazil in 1956 and have been carrying on my research since I met a Theosophical leader who told me about the subterranean cities... that exist in Brazil. He referred to Professor Henrique de Souza, president of the Brazilian Theosophical Society, at Sao Lourenco in the state of Minas Gerais, who erected a temple dedicated to Agharta, which is the Buddhist name of the subterranean World. Here in Brazil live Theosophists from all parts of the world, all of whom believe in the existence of the subterranean cities.

Professor de Souza told me that the great English explorer Colonel Fawcett is still alive, living in a subterranean city in the Roncador Mountains of Matto Grosso, where he found the subterranean city of Atlanteans for which he searched,

(Note: Bernard refers to the inhabitants of this city as ‘Atlanteans’, when in fact other accounts suggest that—like the underground cities below the east coast of North America—many of these cavern cities were originally constructed by an ancient antediluvian race which might have been very similar to the lost race spoken of in the ‘Atlantis’ legendary, and were later re-inhabited after the flood. In ‘this’ sense they might be referred to as ‘Atlanteans’ although the present inhabitants of such cities probably do not have any direct ‘genetic’ ties to the antediluvian ‘Atlanteans’. - Branton),

but is held prisoner lest he reveal the secret of his whereabouts. He was not killed by Indians as is commonly believed. Professor de Souza claimed he has visited subterranean cities, including Shamballah, the world capital of the subterranean empire of Agharta. I then went to Matto Grosso to find the subterranean city where Fawcett is claimed to be living with his son Jack, but failed to do so. I then returned to Joinville in the state of Santa Catarina, and there continued my research.

“Just recently two explorers returned from entering a tunnel near Ponte Grosse in the state of Parana. One of them had recently entered alone and spent five days in the underworld city there. It had about 50 inhabitants plus children. The fruit orchards were recently planted, and the inhabitants received fruit from another subterranean city. During the last visit, the two explorers were met at the entrance of the tunnel by a guardian and the chief of the city, who told them that they should return in two years when the fruit trees will start to bear, but cannot enter now.

“The same two explorers entered a tunnel in Rincon, state of Parana, and finally came to a chimney-like structure with four chains hanging down. They descended on the chains but when they came near the bottom a gas with a chemical odor started to come up and forced them to ascend. Obviously the subterranean dwellers tried to keep them from reaching the city (This seems often to be the case - Commander X).

“Our explorer J.D. (name on file - Commander X), who is a mountain guide of the Mystery Mountain near Joinville (where there is supposed to be an entrance) said that, several times, he saw a luminous flying saucer ascend from the tunnel opening that leads to a subterranean city inside the mountain, in which he heard the beautiful choral singing of men and women, and also heard the ‘canto galo’ (rooster crowing), a universal symbol indicating the existence of subterranean cities in Brazil. He said that the saucer was so luminous that it lit up the night sky and converted it into daylight. On one occasion he met a group of subterranean men outside the tunnel. They were short, stocky, with reddish beards and long hair, and very muscular. When he tried to approach them, they vanished. Often he saw strange illuminations in this area at night which were probably produced by flying saucers (We use the name ‘Mystery Mountain,’ rather than reveal the true name of the mountain, so that unwanted outsiders will not come here to locate it). Throughout my many years of research I have accumulated a vast amount of data which would indicate that these entrances to subterranean cities abound throughout the region.

“An elderly man living in Joinville once told me that he had visited a tunnel near Concepiao in the state of Sao Paulo, and saw in the distance a marvelous subterranean city with vehicles darting back and forth, evidently traveling through tunnels from one subterranean city to another.

“Although the following report requires confirmation, it was told to me by an explorer named N.C. who said that he had visited a tunnel near Rio Casdor and had met a beautiful young woman appearing to be about 20 years of age. She spoke to him in Portuguese and SAID that she was 2,500 years old. He also met a bearded subterranean man

(Note: Often humans encountered in aerial disks or subterranean caverns declare that they are extremely old by humans standards. On the surface this might sound next to impossible, unless a revolutionary scientific breakthrough on the part of these human ‘aliens’ has allowed them to retard the aging process to an extreme degree, or could the possibly that they are separated from the degenerating radiations of solar rays explain their allegedly greater longevity? Another possibility would be that through bionics/biological transplants/prosthetics, etc. the lifespan of human beings possessing advanced biological and technological sciences might theoretically be increased dramatically. Incidentally, the writer and traveler Robert Stacy-Judd in some of his books described an exploration he and others in his party made of the peripheral areas of the Loltun caves of Yucatan.


Legend says that at least one group of people, fleeing persecution, entered en masse into the massive Loltun caves and were never seen again. Stacy-Judd tells of his own encounter with a ‘cave hermit’ deep in the cavern chambers who claimed to be well over 1000 years old, and who said he was a guardian of the cave and of the treasures—and city?--which lay deep below in the unknown depths, ‘unknown’ that is, except to the strange ‘hermit’. Aside from photographs of this hermit which appeared in some of his works, the author also revealed photographs of ‘underground gardens’ consisting of areas of the cave which contain small patches of ‘jungle’, watered and lit through parts of the cavern ceilings which had collapsed, exposing them to the outer world. Whether such claims of longevity are real or whether the “subterranean” people were just playing with the minds of such explorers who encountered them, is uncertain - Branton).

“Still another explorer named D.O. visited this same tunnel near Gaspar, Santa Catarina, and behind a wonderful fruit orchard saw a subterranean woman with a child in her arms reading to it aloud from a huge book written in an unknown language... After she read each sentence the child repeated the same and in this way was taught how to read. All of these subterranean cities are illuminated by strange light...’”

In relation to the apparent connection between subterranean civilizations and unidentified flying objects (Bernard and de Souza, incidentally, believed ‘flying saucers’ to be of subterranean origin), we will here quote from Paris Flammonde, author of ‘THE AGE OF FLYING SAUCERS’ (Hawthorne Books, Inc., N.Y.), who tends to confirm this hypothesis. He in turn quoted Raymond A. Palmer as a major proponent of this belief:

“...The new decade was not without a new theory, or, at least, a variation of an old one—that not only were Flying Saucers not originating from beyond the farthest reaches of our planet, they were expelled from within it... Ray Palmer wrote a lengthy article elaborating his interesting and imaginative thesis, and prefaced it with the assertion that he was prepared ‘to prove that flying saucers are native to planet earth; that the governments of more than one nation (if not all of them) know this to be the fact; that a concerted effort is being made to learn all about them, and to explore their native land; and that facts already known are considered so important that they are the world’s top secret...’ The continuation of his contention reads:

‘...is there any area on Earth which can be regarded as a possible origin for flying saucers? There are...four...the two major, in order of importance, are Antarctica and the Arctic...the two minor areas are South America’s Motto Grosso and Asia’s Tibetan Highlands.’”

Raymond Bernard (actual name ‘Walter Seigmeister’), writing in the Oct. 1959 issue of SEARCH Magazine, p. 48, described yet another alleged encounter with a subterranean race. What are we to make of all these stories? Are we to assume that some of the individuals who told Bernard such accounts actually made them up, as some suggest, in order to receive the ‘reward’ Bernard was known to offer on documentable accounts of ancient tunnels? Or, are we to accept these accounts for just what their sources claim them to be, actual encounters with a subterranean world? Bernard stated the following:

“...Last week my investigators returned and said they visited their city (i.e. the ‘city’ of a race of dwarf-humans whom Bernard referred to as the ‘Niebelungs’, who live in a subterranean region with it’s own system of illumination - Branton) and are able to bring any of my American friends to visit it, but I require one condition: absolute secrecy, as I don’t want governments to send armies into the tunnel to disturb these peaceful people.

“To reach them requires a 3-day journey of about 40 miles through a tunnel. This entire distance is through a tunnel carefully lined with cut stone blocks below, above and on the sides. That was quite an engineering feat. I think the tunnel was made long to keep out curiosity seekers, and only the most determined will travel that distance.

“Here is the report of my investigations: (They are two ranchers, father and son, who discovered the tunnel accidentally):

“’We left our house 5 A.M. for the tunnel on top of a mountain and reached it 3 P.M. We were tired and camped near the entrance of the tunnel. For three days we proceeded through the tunnel. We told time by our watches, as we could not tell when it was day or night. We went to sleep at 10 P.M. and awoke at 3 A.M. and continued walking. By the third day the tunnel started to go downward by steps. It was built of stone blocks on all sides. By the night of the third day the tunnel suddenly opened into a great space covered with what appeared as a sky with a yellow light that made everything luminous, like daylight. We saw a city with many houses and saw many people in the distance. They were dwarfs with long white beards and long hair and we saw women and children, and heard them crying. The third member of our party got frightened so we had to return.’

“These men found three such tunnels. They entered another for three days, but after hearing voices further in, got scared and returned. Now they are entering the third...”

In his book ‘THE UNDERPEOPLE’ (1969. Award Books., N.Y.), author Eric Norman relates an interesting account of the possible fate of the Inca Indians. In chapter 2 - ‘Strange Caverns and Terrifying Tunnels’, he relates:

“Conquest in South America was natives hacked to death by Spanish swords, arrogant priests absolving Conquistadors for their murderous atrocities, sharp Toledo steel lances running through children and, pervading it all, a dark lust for native gold.

“In the autumn of 1582, Francisco Pizarro hid his 168 Spanish horse soldiers behind the doorways and walls of the Incan town of Cajamarca. Atahualpa, the absolute emperor of the sun-worshipping Inca’s empire, had agreed to meet Pizarro in the village plaza. Atahualpa’s procession entered the village with a flair of pageantry. Incan warriors and the emperor’s litter bearers were dressed in the finest cloth. The Royal Guard were armed with spiked helmets, feathered war clubs, poison-tipped lances and dazzling gold-inlaid swords. Thick gold bracelets encircled their bronze wrists and rich silver discs dangled from their pierced ear lobes.

Pizarro and his Conquistadors remained hidden behind their guns and cannons as Atahualpa and his entourage entered the main plaza. ‘It is like leading hogs to the killing pen,’ Pizarro sneered. The bandy-legged Spaniard knew hogs; prior to his service for Spain’s king, Pizarro had been a swineherd in the province of Estremadura. He lived by a harsh personal code that equated kindness with weakness; deceit was the trick of a clever man and lying, duplicity and thievery were proper.

Atahualpa’s group stirred nervously when they found no sign of the visitors to their land. Spanish fingers twitched on gun triggers and a hawk-faced soldier stood ready to torch the cannon. Suddenly, a solitary figure left a building and walked into the plaza. He was dressed in the faded robe of a Dominican friar. His bald head glistened contemptuously toward the Incan emperor.

Friar Vincente Valverde announced that all of South America now belonged to the king of Spain. He stared coldly at the emperor and snapped, ‘The Papal Bull of 1493 provides this right...’

“Proud and regal, Atahualpa glared at the haughty friar before him. ‘Your Pope must be crazy to give away land that does not belong to him,’ he said...

“The friar was stunned momentarily, then he turned and ran toward the safety of a building, shouting: ‘Pizarro, attack, attack! Kill all of them! I will absolve you!’

“With hoarse cries of ‘Santiago!’, the Spaniards slaughtered the unsuspecting Inca warriors. In a few minutes the battle was over; the emperor’s royal guard was dead, or dying, in the bloodstained dust of the plaza and Atahualpa was a prisoner of Pizarro. Greedy Spanish hands ripped the emerald necklace from his body. A wild gleam entered Pizarro’s eyes when the emperor handed over his exquisitely carved bracelets of thick gold.

“’I want my freedom,’ Atahualpa informed Pizarro. ‘I will fill this room with gold for ransom.’ The room was 17 feet wide and 22 feet long! The emperor’s subjects delivered $8,443,456 in gold to Pizarro and, afterward, Pizarro and Friar Vincente Valverde condemned Atahualpa to be burned alive at the stake.

“While the Spaniards were burning the emperor, a pack train of 11,000 llamas was headed toward the Spanish encampment. Each beast was burdened by a heavy load of gold. Native messengers brought news of the Inca king’s death—and the fantastic caravan disappeared! During the past centuries, thousands of gold-greedy adventurers have searched for the ‘loot of the 11,000 llamas.’ None has discovered a single clue to the treasure’s site.

“Believers in the Under-People theory are firm in their contention that the Incan llamas disappeared into a gigantic tunnel that led to the inner earth kingdoms. ‘Even the population figures show that these conquered people outwitted their bestial conquerors,’ according to one South American researcher. ‘Incan census figures reveal that there was 10,000,000 subjects when the Spaniards arrived. Forty years later, in 1571, the Spaniards took a census. There was approximately 1,000,000 Indians. I admit that the Spanish method of slave labor took a tremendous toll. But could 9,000,000 Incas have died in Spanish mines?’”

Eric Norman relates the words of one correspondent who described the ancient subterranean tunnels believed by many to exist beneath the Andes:

“’...at first I scoffed at such stories about mysterious tunnels and an alien civilization beneath the surface... I joined an inner earth group for the simple enjoyment of discussing outlandish ideas in a humorless, serious manner. Gradually, I became interested by the considerable volume of circumstantial evidence. I now believe the earth is absolutely honeycombed by a web of tunnels that run beneath the continents, under the oceans, and these passageways link the subterranean cities of the inner world.

“’...There are many reports concerning a vast tunnel called the ‘Roadway of the Incas’ which has an entrance somewhere in Peru. It runs south more than a thousand miles. There is another entrance to this fabulous tunnel in the Desert of Atacama in Chile. The ‘Highway of the Incas’ passes under Cuzco, the legendary city of Peru. There is another, smaller, but very well hidden entrance to the tunnel in the mountains near Machu Picchu, which is the capital city of the first and last Inca emperor. It is called ‘The Lost City of the Incas’ and was not discovered until 1911 by an American, Hiram Bringham. It is considered the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World.’

“’...Everything at Machu Picchu is an excellent preservation...there are more than two hundred buildings constructed from white granite...fountains...shrines...and gigantic stairways carved from a single massive boulder.

“’...This was a thriving city. It is intact except for the thatched roofs of the houses having deteriorated over the centuries...and, the doors are missing...it is as if the inhabitants selected a single day and mysteriously vanished. Did they enter the ‘Highway of the Incas’ and migrate to the inner earth?’

“Was this correspondent brainwashed by his colleagues to believe in the subterranean world? Or, was he a skeptical man who changed his mind in the face of a tremendous amount of information? His mention of the ‘Highway of the Incas’ strikes a familiar note... A physician in Argentina has devoted his spare time to an investigation of this legendary inter-continental tunnel of the Under-People. He commented:

“’...I have always been intrigued by the unknown and please convey my thanks to Dr. H--- for providing the opportunity to publish my views... I started to investigate the ‘Highway of the Incas’ when I was a young, curious youth and I have hundreds of witnessed, notarized statements. These documents and tape recordings fill one room of my home. The Incas knew of the tunnel and, although gold was of little value to them, they hid their treasures in these caverns to keep it from the greedy Spanish conquerors. No one had provided a satisfactory explanation for their mysterious disappearance. There was an empire of several million people that vanished from the surface of the earth. They entered the tunnel and left the Quechua Indians behind. As few Incas have been seen since then, they possibly took up residence in a cavern city or followed the tunnel to the interior of the earth.

“’...The ‘Highway’ is the largest of the tunnels and it connects all continents. In addition to the openings in South America, there are entrances in Canada, in British Columbia; in America, you should investigate Mt. Shasta in California and Mt. St. Helena in Oregon. The tunnel is connected with Tibet and another opening in Central Asia. I believe the African entrance is in the Atlas mountains in the north of that continent.

“’...I also suggest that you explore the ‘highways’ which have been found in the oceans. These ancient underworld civilizations may be mining our seas!’”

In previous files we referred to the alleged inhabitants of a subterranean city below Mt. Shasta in California, which is believed to be one of the largest, if not THE largest, subterranean community in North America, and which allegedly has ties with the Asian empire of “Agharti” and the South American subterranean colonies.


The following are some excepts from an article written by William F. Hamilton (whose other publications can be obtained via 7327 Bothwell Rd., Reseda, CA 91335), who we have mentioned in earlier writings.

  • Close Encounter Report

  •  Alien Magic

  • Cosmic Top Secret

He has written numerous articles for publications such as ‘Search,’ ‘Energy Unlimited,’ ‘New Age Science,’ ‘The New Atlantean Journal,’ ‘California UFO,’ and ‘UFO Universe’.


The following article originally appeared in the ‘New Atlantean Journal’:

“...I run across some fascinating people in the course of my investigations who tell me many unusual stories. While on the trail of reports of UFO base locations, I met a young, very pretty blonde girl with almond-shaped eyes and small perfect teeth, whose name is Bonnie. Bonnie has told me an incredible story and has related a volume of interesting information... Bonnie is sincere, cheerful, and rational and says she (was born) in 1951 in a city called TELOS that was built inside an artificial dome-shaped cavern in the Earth a mile or so beneath Mt. Shasta, California.

Bonnie, her mother (Rana Mu), her father Ra(Mu), her sister Judy, her cousins Lorae and Matox, live and move in our society, returning frequently to TELOS for rest and recuperation. Bonnie relates that her people use boring machines to bore tunnels in the Earth. These boring machines heat the rock to incandescence, then vitrify it, thus eliminating the need for beams and supports. A tube transit tunnel is used to connect the... cities that exist in various subterranean regions in our hemisphere. The tube trains are propelled by electromagnetic impulses up to speeds of 2500 mph. One tube connects with one of their cities in the Matto Grosso jungle of Brazil. (They) have developed space travel and some flying saucers come from their subterranean bases...

“They grow food hydroponically under full-spectrum lights with their gardens attended by automatons. The food and resources of Telos are distributed in plenty to the million-and-a-half population that thrives on a no-money economy. Bonnie talks about history, of the Uighers, Naga-Mayas, and Quetzals, of which she is a descendant

(Note: Many people have mistakenly identified the inhabitants of ‘Telos’ as being directly descended from the ‘Lemurians’, however Bonnie here seems to refute this by indicating that her ancestrage was other than this, possibly Meso-American and/or East-Indian? As in the case of the ancient ‘antediluvian’ cities of the eastern seaboard which were re-established after being abandoned by the lost ‘Atlanteans’, the ‘Lemurians’, if they existed, also seem to have been devastated in a world-wide cataclysm and their cities re-established by the Uighers, Naga-Mayas, and Quetzals and probably scattered members of other societies. As we’ve said earlier, the name ‘Telos’ is a Grecian word meaning ‘uttermost’, suggesting a ‘possible’ connection with the grecian-like Hav-musuvs of the Panamint mountains of California - Branton).

“I met Bonnie’s cousin, Matox, who, like her, is a strict vegetarian and holds the same attitudes concerning the motives of government. They constantly guard against discovery or intrusion. Their advanced awareness and technology helps them remain vigilant...

“Science Fiction? Bonnie is a real person. Many have met her. Is she perpetrating a hoax? For what motive? She does not seek publicity and I have a devil of a time getting her to meetings to talk with others, but she has done so. There has been little variation in her story and her answers in the past three years. She has given me excellent technical insight on the construction of a crystal-powered generator that extracts ambient energy... Bonnie’s father, the Ramu, is 300 years old and a member of the ruling council of Telos.

“Many tunnels are unsafe and closed off. All tube transit tunnels are protected and are designed to eject uninvited guests. Does Bonnie have the answers that we are looking for? I don’t know... Bonnie says she would like to satisfy our need for proof and will work with me on a satisfactory answer to that problem, but she is unconcerned with whether people accept her or not. Bonnie is humorous and easy-going and well-poised, yet sometimes she becomes brooding and mysterious. She says her people are busy planning survival centers for refugees. One of these is to be near Prescott, Arizona...”

(Note: or rather below the Groom Creek area just south of Prescott, to be exact. Another ‘survival center’ for refugees of the world-wide cataclysms which the Telosians believe will eventually devastate the surface of the earth, is said to be below the general area of Jenny Lake, Wyoming, near the Tetons. The Tetons themselves have been the alleged home of a mysterious race, according to different sources, and extremely ancient stone ‘buildings’ have reportedly been found high atop these peaks - Branton).

When Bill Hamilton asked “Bonnie” to elaborate about the power-sources which her people utilize to propel the so-called “flying saucer” craft, she replied:

“...A lot of it is crystals (i.e. crystal-induced electromagnetism? - Branton), particularly the atmospheric vehicles. The planet-to-planet vehicles are driven by an Ion-Mercury engine. Spaceships can reach speeds way beyond light— they can enter hyperspace—you generate into the fourth dimension—this is controlled by an on-board computer that takes you into and out of hyperspace. I know this is a simplification. When your on a ship going into hyperspace, you will hear this vibration, and a loud screaming sound when you enter, then you will hear nothing...”

Bill concludes:

“I have had many correlations on this data and am researching it further toward a comprehensive theory of space travel...”

The account given below appeared in ‘INNER LIGHT’ Magazine, Summer, 1991. Written by ‘Antara’, the article, entitled: ‘INTRODUCING THE WOMAN FROM TELOS, THE CITY BENEATH MOUNT SHASTA’, is an alleged interview with this same resident of a subterranean city now living and working on the surface, under the name of ‘Bonnie’ or ‘Sharula’, along with her husband ‘Shield’.


We quote portions of the interview as follows:

“The following interview with Sharula took place on July 23, 1990, and is reprinted from ‘INSIGHTS FOR POSITIVE LIVING.’ She shares with us some wonderful information about the ‘Atlantean’ and ‘Lemurian’ cities (i.e. cities originally ‘built’ by antediluvian ‘Atlanteans’ and ‘Lemurians’? - Branton) that exist beneath the earth’s surface.

“She speaks of her home, Telos, a city built a mile or so beneath Mt. Shasta, California. During a recent trip to Mt. Shasta, I encountered several local townspeople who have personally seen mysterious fires and lights on the slopes of Mt. Shasta, and have heard otherworldly chants and music late at night, emanating from the mountain. And of course, there have been sightings of mysterious robed people walking into the side of the mountain. Even the local visitor’s guide mentions the ‘Lemurian’ connection to Mt. Shasta.

“This interview may really stretch your perceptions of reality. I hope it does. It’s meant to...

“INSIGHTS: Let’s start off with some basic questions of who you are and where you come from.”

“SHARULA: My name is Sharula and I come from a city underneath Mt. Shasta, called Telos. This city was constructed... at the termination of the Lemurian continent. When the scientists and priests of Lemuria realized the continent was about to sink, they petitioned a group called the Agharta Network, which controlled all the subterranean cities, to build our own city underneath Mt. Shasta. There was an original set of caves there. We chose to enlarge these caverns to make them bigger and more livable...”

(Note: Although most accounts seem to suggest that ‘Atlantis’ was destroyed in a cataclysm equivalent to a universal flood or deluge such as is described in the traditions of several races as well as in the writings of the Greek Plato, ‘Lemuria’ may be a different story. ‘Lemuria’ seems to be the name that surface humans have attributed to this alleged lost continent of the Pacific, but whether it was actually named that by the ancient inhabitants is uncertain. The major area of confusion seems to be whether ‘Lemuria’ or ‘Mu’ was an antediluvian OR post-deluvian society like ‘Agharti’. James Churchward seems to place ‘Mu’ somewhere in the Indian ocean, whereas others place it in the Pacific. Some of the old Indian tribes of the northeast and the California area have ancient legends of an island-continent called ‘Elam-Mu’ which was said to be connected to ancient California or separate from it, out in the Pacific Ocean. Could the Hawaiian islands be remnants of such an island-continent? The native American legends of California seem to place ‘MU’ shortly AFTER the deluge, which was believed to have occurred a few thousand years B.C. or 5000 years previous to the close of the 20th Century. The exact history of the ‘Telosians’ still needs to be investigated, even with the present information available, as it seems to be a complex history possibly involving several races - the Uighers, Naga-Mayas, Quetzal’s, ‘Lemurians’ or ‘Muvians’, Aghartians, and possibly Greeks, East Indians, and others!? - Branton).

“INSIGHTS: How many people live in Telos?”

“SHARULA: A million and a half.”

“INSIGHTS: Tell us about your ecosystem; your water, food, air, environment—what is it like to live in Telos?”

“SHARULA: We have perpetual light through a process of energizing stones to create full spectrum lighting. We process them with the forces that make them small suns. The five levels are garden levels where we produce all the food we need with hydroponic gardens. There are plants on all five levels that continue to circulate the air. We work off the same system the earth does - the plants produce oxygen (i.e. a subterranean ‘biosphere’ - Branton). Plus, we have air shafts that come through the surface that sends air. Since that air is polluted, we use them less and less.”

(Note: Several years ago a man wrote into SEARCH Magazine stating that he was an Incan descendant who was “searching for” his own people, as he was convinced that they had escaped en masse into underground cities via ancient tunnels which they knew of, when the conquistadors invaded their land. He claimed that one day while by a river in a certain region near Matto Grosso, Brazil, he thought he heard a voice shouting from the top of a mountain. He began to climb the peak and a few hours later found himself beside a mountain-top shaft. He later managed to descend the shaft and discovered a tunnel which led horizontally to a point where a type of “door” existed. He heard what sounded like an “elevator” coming up from deep below and a well-built man who claimed to be part “Incan” appeared and introduced himself through a transparent screen. He was told that anyone entering this particular subterranean region had to undergo a physical “purification” process to remove the radioactive poisons from their bodies, which were resident in the atmosphere of the outer world. Could this explain why the life-span of some of the under-people has reportedly increased dramatically? The Old Testament ‘Torah’ states that previous to the deluge a transparent ‘canopy’ of water vapor permeated the upper atmosphere, and some suggest that before this canopy fell in the form of the deluge the life-span of the antediluvians was dramatically increased because this “canopy” sealed-out most of the harmful and degenerating radiations of the sun. They suggest that this was why the antediluvians lived to an average of 500 years of age, while some like Methuselah lived upwards of 900 years! It appears as if the ‘Telosians’ have taken precautions not only from the atmospheric solar radioactive pollution resulting from a decaying atmospheric ‘shield’, as is evidenced by an increase in skin-cancer world-wide, etc., but also from the man-made radioactive and industrial pollutants - Branton)

“INSIGHTS: What form of government do you have?”

“SHARULA: We have a system where the government is run by the Council of Twelve plus One. They are twelve masters, six male and six female. If anyone has a disagreement, they go to an arbitrator, rather than fight it out among themselves. All arbitrators report to the council and they change constantly. They are appointed to that position based on their natural affinity for it.”

“INSIGHTS: Who appoints them to that position?”

“SHARULA: The temple of Melchizedek... All through the cosmos (i.e. human colonizers and explorers sent out from the earth since the deluge? - Branton) there is an order called Melchizedek...”

At this point we will, before continuing with the Sharula interview, deal with the history ofMelchizedek’, which began on Earth in ancient times. Melchizedek was the ancient High Priest of Salem (now Jerusalem). We believe that this subject is important enough to deserve a fairly extensive explanation. There are basically two divergent views concerning the Priesthood of Melchizedek.

  • The first is held by the various ancient and neo-masonic religions, which basically state that there are NUMEROUS members of the order who have been ‘initiated’ into the priesthood through a process of religious devotion, etc.,

  • while the other view is held by the various groups of Judeo-Christian believers who claim that there is only one Melchizedek Priest, the God-Man Jesus, and since only one High Priest was allowed to serve before Almighty God at any one time in ancient Israel—to be replaced by another when he had passed on—these claim that since Jesus ascended from the grave and now lives forever without the possibility of every dying, this singular Priesthood will be His alone eternally.

Both sides no doubt sincerely believe that they have ‘the truth’, but, of course, both cannot be correct.

We continue now with the interview with ‘Sharula’:

“INSIGHTS: Earlier, you mentioned... you had to petition the Aghartha, the ones in charge of the inner earth cities. Are there other cities in existence?”

“SHARULA: Oh, yes. There are many. There are over one hundred inner earth cities. Some of them are very similar...”

“INSIGHTS: How does one travel from city to city or from surface to inner city?”

“SHARULA: Probably the most common method is what we call the ‘tubes.’ It is a series of underground trains. We’ve bored tunnels that run underneath all the oceans and all the continents and connect all the cities and several of the retreats. The trains, which look very much like a subway train, are run on a cushion of air, an electromagnetic cushion, so they never actually touch the sides of the tunnel. This cushion creates a force field without friction and therefore they can achieve very high speeds. The trains are capable of running over 3,000 mph.”

“INSIGHTS: Between the surface and the inner cities, how does one travel?”

“SHARULA: There are several entrances that open to the surface. We’ll use that method or we’ll use a ship which is run by the silver fleet.”

“INSIGHTS: The silver fleet...explain that please.”

“SHARULA: ...The silver fleet is made up of beings from the Agharthean cities. Many of the ships that people see in the air are silver fleets’ ships, except for the ‘nasties.’”

“INSIGHTS: How can you identify a silver fleet ship as opposed to the ‘nasties,’ as you call them?”

“SHARULA: ...all the Confederation ships run off of ‘divine’ geometrics (or rather, ‘cosmic’ geometrics - Branton). The ships will be either cylinder (cigar?) or they will be saucer shaped or they will be round. There are NOT a lot of protrusions and angles; they have a tendency to be smooth. The ships that come in boomerang shapes and other weird configurations are usually not Confederation ships.”

(Note: although this may be true to some extent, in recent years according to some reports the saurian grays have begun to use the ‘disk’ or ‘saucer’ shape also more frequently. The ‘triangular’ craft seen en masse in Belgium, etc. are apparently ‘gray’ craft according to abductees there, which would tend to confirm some of what Bonnie or Sharula is saying. Also, these ‘boomerang’ craft have often been seen in connection with the Archuleta sub-base network of the southwestern U.S., which would seem to indicate from what Sharula has said that theDulcenetwork is largely under the control of the ‘nasties’, or the draconian powers, as many other sources allege that it is. - Branton)

“INSIGHTS: Let’s talk about the people themselves, the Telosians. What would a typical Telosian look like?”

“SHARULA: The typical Telosian has a slightly golden tone to their skin and have a tendency toward high cheek bones and slightly almond shaped eyes. Most Telosians run toward light hair and we have all eye colors. The men are generally 7’ to 7’6” in height and the women are generally 6’6” to 7’1” in height. When we come to the surface we have a process of altering the molecules of our bodies so that we are able to appear the same height as people here on the surface.”

“INSIGHTS: Does your civilization have any of the social problems that ours seem to have, like: pollution, hunger, homeless people and water droughts?”

“SHARULA: No. We don’t have pollution because we are able to monitor our systems at all times. We have learned to accelerate the atom. When the first scientists started working with atoms they didn’t realize that they weren’t meant to shatter the atom for energy; they were meant to accelerate the atom for energy that won’t die out and won’t produce hazardous afterform. Because we learned to accelerate the atoms, we’re also able to dematerialize all of our waste matter and return it back to its original form...”

“INSIGHTS: Is the U.S. Government aware of the existence of Telos and the other underground cities?”

“SHARULA: Yes. For a long time they have been trying to get in, to access the information of Telos and the silver fleet. The promise of what they need would be given to them, but in return there are several things they have to do or quit doing.”

“INSIGHTS: What was it that they were given to do or stop doing?”

“SHARULA: Basically, return the country to what it was founded on and return to an open and honest government, so that every citizen has access to what’s happening in the government.”

(Note: i.e. Constitutionally-based government, Bill of Rights’s, etc.? If this is Sharula’s interpretation of an ‘open’ government, then we must assume that the Telosians, or at least many of them, are opposed to the present plans to establish a one-world socialist dictatorship or ‘New World Order’ which will no doubt impose tremendous threats upon individual liberty of conscience. The reader may recall the information from an earlier file to the effect that human ‘benevolents’ were working with the U.S. Government in the Nevada Military complex against the saurian grays. Their ‘teachings’ stated that the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights was very much respected by them. Also, could these be allied with the same ‘human’ aliens who landed in Florida after the two giant asteroid-ships took up a geosynchronous orbit around the earth, and warned us not to have any dealing with these ‘grayaliens, and offered their own assistance if we disarmed our nuclear weapons? Were ‘they’ tied in with the TelosianBlonds’ or the PleiadeanNordics’? Some accounts suggest that both human groups are at least aware of each other, and possibly have an alliance with each other. Now that the Soviet Union has broken up and the ‘need’ for intercontinental ballistic nuclear missiles has been decreased, will the U.S. government break-off their self-destructive alliance with the ‘grays’ and instead seek alliances with the human groups who had originally warned them about the grays? - Branton)

“INSIGHTS: Are you referring to the government’s interaction with other ‘extraterrestrial’ (and/or ‘innerterrestrials’ - Branton) that are not of the silver fleet?” (Note: The interviewer is no doubt referring to the ‘pact’ which the secret government was manipulated and deceived into making with the reptilian ‘Grays’, and subsequently with other branches of the ‘serpent race’ - Branton)

“SHARULA: Yes. That is only one.”

“INSIGHTS: When was the government first introduced to Telos?”

“SHARULA: They have been aware of the subterranean cities and they have been aware of Telos since the country’s conception. It is only near the turn of the century that they started taking action. This action did not get really aggressive until the 1950’s.”

Note: There are indications that some members of certain Masonic-type ‘secret government’ societies, such as the Rosicrucian Order, have attempted to establish contact with the subterranean residents of Mt. Shasta, although it is uncertain just what might have come of this. Several encounters with the ‘Blondes’ (both subterran and exterran?) have revealed ‘their’ own concern about what is taking place with the abductions and mutilations of human beings by the sauroid Grays, although many of these groups claim that they cannot ‘interfere’ with the problem due to some ‘cosmic law’ of non-intervention. This may be true with those ‘Nordic’ or ‘Blondesocieties who hail from other planetary bodies, such as the Taurians, Lyrans, Eridanians, and Cetusians (the latter of whom seem to be taking the most action to help their brothers here on earth, in essence interfering with the saurian ‘interferers’ from the Draconis, Bootes, Reticuli, Canis, etc. constellations), and the ‘Solar Tribunal’ groups of Mars, Luna, Saturn, etc., and so on.


However, in the case of the Telosian-Aghartian alliance, this ‘non-intervention’ policy would not apply, since this is their world also, and they are just as native to earth as anyone else living on this planet. In light of this fact, and especially in light of their own awareness of the reptilian-saurian threat, we would urge them (if by chance they are reading this) to reconsider such a stance and join with their fellow human brothers and sisters on the surface in defending our society from this ancient threat.

According to Sharula, in another interview, the city of Telos exists on five different levels. The bottom level is about one and one-half miles across, while the other levels are different. The closest level to the mountain itself is about three-quarters of a mile across. This would allow for the possibility of “housing” a large number of inhabitants in a more concentrated area than surface cities could permit, being that surface areas can only be inhabited on the one (surface) level, except for high-rises. This might explain the large (million-and-a-half) population of this particular sub-city.

As a possible confirmation of the above, we quote the following transcript of parts of an interview between John Lear and the National Fringe Sciences Bulletin Board:

“Question: You just mentioned that there were... other ‘species’ in contact with this world... are they aware of the EBE’s?

“Lear: Yes they are. The types I will mention are listed in a USAF Academy Physics book called ‘INTRODUCTORY SPACE SCIENCE VOLUME 2,B.’ I refer to chapter 13... which lists the ones that are most seen. They are the EBE’s, the ‘Blondes’... They look just like us but are invariably blond-haired and blue eyed. Don’t know where they come from but they do not interact with us except for a few abductions now and then. We also have a species that is similar to us in appearance but they are about seven feet tall and the main difference is that their eyes wrap around their head a little more than ours. Another type listed is a small species about four feet tall, very hairy and extremely strong for their size. We don’t know where these guys come from either. All this was in the aforementioned text which was withdrawn by the Air Force in the early ‘70’s from the book. But there are several people who have the original book...

“Question: I’m curious also as to the government’s plans, if any, to deal with an uprising of EBE’s should that eventually occur... or would the technological gap make an attempt untenable?

“Lear: It is my understanding that we have already lost the battle. This is the reason why MJ-12 is in such a panic. They had a lot of well laid plans to inform us, and when the deception was confirmed about 1984 it was all out the window...

“Question: Recently in the INF treaty negotiations, Gorbachev indicated that despite prior claims, they too were working on an SDI program... Is there any connection between our program and theirs and if the battle is lost, why are those attempts being made?

“Lear: I wish I knew the answer to that. Several rumors have come out of the test site recently and one of them was that every test shot this year (1989? - Branton) has been to make a giant (underground - Branton) room. The shots are very clean and as soon as everything subsides they move in equipment to make walls, ceiling, floors and various levels.”

The following account is based on a series of letters, documents, and diagrams which were received from a man in Michigan who we will refer to as David L., who claimed to have been part of a 12-man speleological team who broke into an ancient tunnel system and, subsequently, encountered some of the inhabitants of the subsurface world. These beings described by David ‘may’ be the 7-ft. tall humans with large ‘wrap-around’ eyes described by John Lear who have bases on the moon. However this is only a supposition.

During the mid-1980’s, subsurface researcher Charles A. Marcoux (now deceased) informed other researchers who were at the time involved in aerial and subsurface investigations, that he had received a manuscript, maps, etc., from a long-time correspondent of his. This was David L. We will not reveal the last name of this source, nor the last names nor the cities of residence of others involved in the incident out of respect for their privacy. However, since much of the story was released to inner earth researchers some years ago we feel that the information itself is of enough importance to the “master puzzle” to mention here.

The manuscript contained an account of a series of expeditions which David L. and 11 others were involved with during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Only 4 or 5 of the members took part in the expeditions at any given time, while the others supported their efforts. The account contained a description of an alleged encounter with a subterran “human” race who allegedly inhabited an underground city or cities, connected by tunnels, approximately 5-7 miles beneath the surface of northern Arkansas. This subterranean system was apparently built by a highly technological race. Some indications suggest that the tunnels were constructed by a race which was more ancient than the present inhabitants, and were possibly excavated in antediluvian times, since the present inhabitants allegedly showed the speleologists ancient sealed ‘cities’ farther below their own, built by a race which pre-dated themselves.

Some of the men involved were formerly members of a UFO organization which thrived in Michigan in the 1950’s, and which published a UFO journal which had up to a few thousand subscribers at one point. Some of the writers for this publication, who were also members of the ‘board’ of this investigations group, later left off investigating UFO’s due to the confusing “paranormal” aspects of the phenomena, and instead turned their attentions to subsurface investigations. At the time there was a great division between those UFOlogists who considered the UFO phenomena to be an exclusively physical and solid phenomena and those who were convinced it was more paraphysical or supernatural in nature.


Unfortunately, few considered the possibility that both could be true, i.e. that a physical race of aliensorcerers” that possessed seemingly supernatural or paraphysical abilities, such as the reptilian Grays, were behind much of the phenomena. One of the early members of this groups was a man by the name of George Wight. He, like the others, felt that it might be more profitable to investigate something more “closer to home”, like the subterranean realm, instead of attempting to investigate possible encounters with alien craft from beyond earth which were here today and gone tomorrow and might have been paraphysical apparitions anyway, from all they could gather. So the group eventually drifted towards investigating the underground realm, beginning with the exploration of caverns in Arkansas and surrounding states.

According to David L., even though they had been partially exposed to the idea of subterranean civilizations through the Shaver Mystery, etc., none of them ever expected to encounter anything like that, and they took such accounts with a grain of salt. To them the idea was almost as elusive as the UFO phenomena, they had not really seen any solid evidence to prove it. They probably realized that any such “evidence” of an alien civilization might be apprehended by government officials even if it did turn up, and so they more-or-less resigned themselves to a “wait and see” attitude.
Two of the incidents which led Wight and the others to their assumption of a “paranormal” connection to the UFO phenomena were as follows.


The first incident which led them to their conclusions involved a woman known by some members of the group, who claimed to be an “occult channel” for psychic messages from the so-called “space people”. The researchers tried to convince the girl that she should ask the ‘occupants’ to make an appearance to them, which she did. She took them outside and directed their attention to the sky. From the standpoint of the researchers, nothing could be seen in the sky, even through the girl insisted that ‘they’ were there. However, several people in the area reported seeing a luminous object flying overhead at about the same time the researchers were standing outside with the ‘contactee’, and in the exact same area. They noticed some strange qualities with the girl which reminded them of some of the obsessive and irrational behavior which often accompanies those who have become involved in the occult, witchcraft, and the dark side and have become ‘possessed’ by invisible malevolent entities as a result. Also, with the ‘religious’ background of some of the members of the group, they began to suspect that something sinister and deceptive and at least in part supernatural might be working behind the phenomena. They noticed that some of the objects could be seen by people who were supposedly ‘psychically attuned’ to them or people who were under the influence of the objects and the occupants, while those standing next to them might not see anything at all.

The other account involved one of the members of the group who was of the conviction that many of the UFO’s were of ‘demonic’ origin (this is not to say that ALL such objects can be classified in this way). This member was alleged to have had conversations with a well-known UFOlogist at the time who claimed to have had frequent visits by the so-called ‘Men In Black’. The beings he encountered looked humanlike yet seemed to possess (or were ‘possessed’ by?) supernatural energies; perhaps a “controlled” hidden society of sorcerers!? This particular member of the group, according to David L., claimed that during his conversations with this well-known researcher, he was told by this man confidentially that he was of the opinion that some of the UFO phenomena was ‘satanic’ or ‘demonic’ in nature. The member who was told this even went so far as to begin giving public lectures about the occult/demonic origin of some of the phenomena.

According to David L., some time afterwards and apparently in response to his outspokenness, this member and friend of his was on a ranch somewhere in the mountains of Wyoming where he was suddenly struck by a brilliantly lit red-glowing object which appeared in the sky. As a result of this he suffered serious paralysis below the waist and was consigned to a wheel chair for years afterwards.

Shortly before the group officially disbanded the UFO organization, George Wight himself wrote and published an article in their periodical which presented strong evidence that much of the UFO phenomena was being directed by an unknown intelligence which was secretly working towards the establishment of an Anti-Christ system on earth.

As the “group” began to disband, some of it’s members as we’ve said began to seek out ways to continue their friendships and still remain active in some pursuit. Not so much out of a motive to discover a lost world but more out of a desire to fulfill their hunger for adventure (and escape for at least a time the busy rat-race which many of them, having been involved in some type of ‘professional’ career or business, found themselves getting caught up in) they began to explore the caverns.

During the latter part of the 1950’s the exploration party had investigated some very interesting caverns, mainly within the area of Arkansas and the surrounding states. At on point they came across one particular cavern some miles north of Batesville, Arkansas. This was in an area where several caverns were located. Many of these caves (concentrated generally NW-West of the town of Cushman) have in fact been the subject of some very interesting accounts, suggesting that there might be more than one route to the nether regions below other than the one discovered by David L. and his friends. There are accounts of several people who have entered some of these caves and were never seen again; or who encountered strange phenomena deep underground - such as electrical failure of flashlights, suggesting possible electromagnetic interference; accounts involving extremely deep caverns; gas pockets encountered at extreme depths; and an account concerning one of the caves west of Cushman which seemed to have ancient carvings over it depicting various figures; and there is even one account which came from an Oklahoma man who was told by a friend of his of being chased from a cavern west of Cushman by a large hairy humanoid who began throwing boulders at him as if annoyingly scaring him out of “his” territory!

At one point David L’s group came across one particular cavern near the town. Over a period of years, returning from time to time to this particular cavern, the explorers had crossed underground lakes, followed dead-end leads, explored “breakdown” areas, investigated numerous cracks and chasms, and steep inclines. One of their most fortunate discoveries was made in a large boulder-strewn break-down area about half-way between the entrance and an underground “lake”. They noticed a crack in the path which they had found through the boulders and, following this crack into the thick of the breakdown they came across another area where the crevice widened enough to allow them entrance. Following this they descended for a very great distance for a very long while, down a sloping 45 degree incline, so steep in places that rope had to be used. This steep, sloping passage led them past a couple of horizontal “side passages” which they followed a few miles to dead ends, and continued deeper through at least one more crevice.


Eventually they emerged into a large cavernous area hundreds of feet high and long, which they named “glass cave” because of it’s features, and used it as a central “camp” in subsequent explorations. The remarkable thing about this cavern, however, was their claim that it was located almost 4 MILES beneath the surface of the earth, which would definitely make it deeper than any other “officially” recognized cavern.

Time and again they explored the mazes and labyrinths deep in the earth using “glass cave” as their central camp. Two passages in the far wall of this chamber, opposite from the crevice through which they first entered glass cave, were each explored for 3 days continuously before they decided to turn back. According to David L., these passages still continued onward with no end in sight. Could these have led to the gloomy ‘hadean’ like caverns which they were to see later, and which they alleged contained ‘gigantic serpents’ or snakes capable of crushing a human being to death in a few seconds?

After some experiments involving air flow within glass cave, the explorers were able to trace slight air movements to another as-yet-undiscovered crevice hidden within the wall, not far from the crevice which they had entered from above. This passage, through relatively small, continued still DEEPER into the earth. They explored the steep incline for what they approximated to be a mile, before reaching an area of “breakdown”. This “seemed” to be the end of the line. Just as they were about to turn back in disappointment from this passage which had taken them deeper than they had ever been before, one of the members of the team noticed that the light of their carbide lamps seemed to have a faint amber tint to it. All of them were perplexed, wondering what would be causing the phenomena.

It was decided that they would all turn off their lamps in order to see if the greenish luminescence remained. They did so, and a minute or so afterwards their eyes adjusted to the darkness and they could faintly distinguish a greenish luminescence which seemed to emanate from the lowest part of the passage in an area where heavy “breakdown” SEEMED to close off any further progress.

George Wight was the first one to make his way to the spot in the breakdown area from which the faint light seemed to emanate and, after removing more rocks, they discovered that still another crack or crevice, barely wide enough for one man to enter at a time, descended vertically from beneath the breakdown.

According to David L., Wight volunteered himself to be the first to explore the crevice, and soon afterwards he was on his way down. A few minutes passed before those above heard the sound of what they could only guess was George slipping and falling down the crevice.

After a period of uncertainty those above, concerned for his safety, were relieved to hear the faint voice of George Wight rising up from apparently several dozen feet below. They were able to make out his excited words to the effect that he had fallen into a large tunnel, and encouraged the others to follow him.

They did so, and when they were all in the ‘tunnel’ they stood in stunned silence. The passage which stretched out from them in BOTH directions was not like the common natural cavern passages which they had explored for the past few days. In fact, it seemed more artificial than natural. Approximately a dozen feet in height and about the same in width, the ‘tunnel’ was similar in shape to a subway tunnel, having a domed ceiling and a flat floor. What really caught their attention however, was the fact that the tunnel was illuminated by a greenish phosphorescence to the point that they did not need their carbide lamps to see their surroundings. The strange luminescence seemed to emanate from the walls of the tunnel itself, which were clear and glass-like yet at the same time extremely hard.

In one direction the lighting effect faded out into blackness, while in the other direction the light seemed to increase. One of the members suggested that the light might be coming from the surface, and that they might be in one of the old mines which existed in the area of the cavern entrance, but others brought up the fact that, according to their calculations, they were at least five miles beneath the earth and therefore the light probably did not come from the surface.

Subsequently, the explorers decided to investigate in the direction of the “light” since it would allow them to keep some carbide in reserve for their return trip. At one point the tunnel (which was apparently cut through solid rock much of the way and then glazed over with the hard, transparent substance) opened into a gigantic cavern. Actually, this occurred several times and at intervals, as if those who constructed the tunnel intentionally meant for them to intersect the various cavern systems. Did the ancient builders of this tunnel system possess a combination of gravitometers, x-rays and sounding radars to detect these cavities? Even as it passed through these large caverns, the tunnel still continued in the form of a transparent domed enclosure, still the same shape as before, yet this time the hard transparent substance was in the form of a ‘wall’ a foot or so thick that protected the group from the ‘outside’ or cavern environment. And fortunately so, for beyond the luminescent walls, were black expanses of gloomy darkness within which they could faintly make out huge moving and slithering figures of what seemed to be giant serpents and other grotesque reptilian creatures as well as other non-reptilian creatures, including giant insects.

If not for the fact that these creatures were physical, tangible things, these dark caverns could have been likely candidates for the legendaryHadesof Greek and Hebrew tradition.

The most shocking surprise of all, however, occurred on the third day after exploration of this tunnel began, a considerable distance from the crevice from which they entered the tunnel. They were walking along when all-of-the-sudden they turned around and found themselves face-to-face with a group of human-like beings who stood around 7 to 8 feet tall. ‘Their’ skin had a faint pale-bluish, almost clay-bluish tint to it and their eyes were relatively large and owl-like. But ‘they’ were definitely human, according to David L., who was on this particular expedition. The ‘people’ took out some type of electronic device, apparently some kind of parabolic communicator, and after a few attempts they succeeded in establishing a communication link using the electronic ‘translator’.

At this point their story becomes even more complex, and the exact series of events, in their chronological order, are rather undefined. First, the strange ‘people’ made it known that the tunnel led to a network that went all throughout the earth and to even greater depths. ‘They’ had certain types of instruments that could monitor from a distance the emotional field or make-up of a person and thus determine their intentions. It was only because ‘the group’ was found to possess an emotional makeup indicating relatively non-violent and non-selfish motivations that they were chosen to be contacted. ‘They’ made it known that the cavers could have traveled through the underground tunnels for weeks and would not have discovered their “city” if “they” did not wish them to, as the entrance to it was so well hidden. Here then, are some of the other incidents which allegedly occurred after the group encountered the strange people, or rather after these people CONTACTED the group (chronological sequence uncertain):

1) The group learned that the tunnels continued for hundreds of miles, at least. After the initial contact, the topsiders were taken to a hidden “elevator” and were then taken through this to the “city” where these people resided. This community was apparently made out of a glass-like substance, somewhat like the makeup of the tunnels themselves.

2) Their lifestyle, way of life, society, government, etc., was described as being radically different than that which existed on the surface. These people possessed a “Book of Laws” or a moral code by which they attempted to live. According to David L., if any of their society became violent or became a threat to the rest they were expelled into the tunnels, given sufficient provisions to make it on their own, and generally forced to seek out their destiny in other parts of the nether regions. This punishment for unrepentant “criminals” was apparently practiced only on very rare occasions.

3) The technology used by this civilization was very complex, and is based largely on the technology of the lost races who lived before the flood and whose demise resulted in the abandonment of the subterranean system, along with all of the sophisticated technology which had been left there as well. The race encountered by David L. and his group allegedly were direct descendants of Noah, and were of a race of explorers who came to the Western Hemisphere some centuries following the deluge and discovered and took up residence within the ancient subsystem where they now resided. Some of the technology left by the “ancients” is still not understood by the people encountered by the speleologists. The group was also shown tremendous dark caverns miles beneath the city, where the subterraneans had found ancient ruins of this ancient lost race. Some of these buildings were sealed, apparently the desperate act of the vanished race who built them.

4) Some of the caverns—especially the extremely deep one’s in which the ancient cities were found—were miles in diameter. Some were pitch black and so still and silent that a whisper could seemingly be heard miles away. Some of the upper caverns through which the ‘tunnel’ penetrated contained not only serpent-like creatures but also huge, hairy ‘humanoids’, perhaps tied-in with the Sasquatch family. These however were particularly violent in nature, possibly due to their environment and constant proximity to the serpents. Apparently there was an ongoing conflict between the “hairy” humanoids and the reptilian creatures in the caverns. According to David L., these hairy giants had faces “only a mother could love”. On one occasion, their subterranean friends demonstrated some type of hand-held beam weapon by pointing it at one of the large serpents which could be seen through the tunnel “walls”. The beam melted through the transparent barrier and the serpent disappeared in a sizzling glow of fire.

5) The group attempted to tell their story to friends of theirs on the surface. Apparently they made several trips after their first encounter with the blue-skinned race. However, their story was rejected and met with mockery and ridicule. They attempted to gather proof of their visit, and made a special trip “down under” just for that purpose, and succeeded in capturing a “giant cave moth” which roamed the deeper caverns. They placed it in a bag and upon returning topside they opened the bag and exposed the creature to the brilliant summer sun. For some reason, the sunlight had a disintegrating effect on the insect and before they could show it to anyone as proof it had dried up, become brittle and eventually crumbled to dust. After this, they gave up all attempts to get anyone to believe them, and resigned themselves to keep the secret among the twelve individuals who made up the exploration and support teams, that is, until David L. was given permission to reveal the story to the now late Charles A. Marcoux

(Note: Marcoux incidentally died as a result of a ‘heart attack’, while exploring the surface areas around the Cushman caves. His wife described it as a sudden and irrational attack of fear resulting from a swarm of bees that Charles had encountered. One must realize that ‘fear’ is one of the most powerful weapons utilized by theinfernals’ who would attempt to blind mankind to conditions taking place in the inner world).

Eventually George Wight decided to remain below with their subterranean friends, and on their second-to-the-last trip they said their goodbyes. They allegedly made one more trip afterwards during which they met with their friend, who was doing well, for the last time. The peculiar thing about this incident, according to David, was that shortly after Wight had joined this underground society all evidence and records of him ever existing began to mysteriously disappear from the surface. Birth certificates, school records, computer records, bank records, etc. all seemed to vanish, apparently the work of someone in a very influential position who was able to erase all evidence that Wight had ever lived. Some researchers still retain copies of George Wight’s articles from the old UFO periodical, nevertheless. This would open up the possibility that this underground race closely monitors events on the surface, and even has “workers” in various influential positions who act as mediators in surface society. Everything points to the fact that this subterranean race prefers it’s privacy and does not wish to become involved in the political conflict and chaos which has for untold centuries plagued the surface world by warring factions constantly fighting over territorial rights, etc.

There is apparently much more to this account than we can relate here, however for various reasons, specific information other than that which we have just related will have to remain confidential. One can seemingly find “connections” between this account and others which have been related by other sources. For instance, John Lear has stated to some researchers that certain Apollo astronauts encountered another terran or earth-based race on the moon, a race that apparently made it there long before America did, and this 7 ft. tall, large-eyed race of humans seems to fit the same description as that given by David L. The people that Lear referred to allegedly have an alliance with the ‘Blondes’. Is it possible that the underground people contacted by David know of and interact with the Telosians?

Whether this small item has any connection with the people allegedly encountered by the speleologists is uncertain, but it was related by John Keel in his book ‘THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES’:

“...The Cherokees have a tradition, according to Benjamin Smith Barton’s ‘NEW VIEWS OF THE ORIGINS OF THE TRIBES AND NATIONS OF AMERICA’ (1798), that when they migrated to Tennessee they found the region inhabited by a weird race of white people who lived in houses and were apparently quite civilized. They had one problem: their eyes were very large and sensitive to light. They could only see at night...” Is it possible that these people may have later taken up a cave-dwelling lifestyle, if they had not done so previously, to allow themselves more comfortable living conditions?

Leading Edge Research’ made the following statements in one of their publications:

“ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON ALIEN BASES - There is some confusion over the subject of alien bases in the United States. There seem to be many of them, but some of them seem to stand out functionally and operationally. IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE MAIN BASE is in NEW MEXICO with small detachments (human phrase) at Dreamland and Area 51 in general. Both of those locations are used to test-fly alien craft (PROJECT GRUDGE/REDLIGHT). The main location for the test flights appears to be Area 51. The EXCALIBUR project being developed AT LOS ALAMOS is designed to try and penetrate underground facilities, since they (grays) have entrenched themselves and no longer honor any of the dubious agreements which they have made with (certain) factions within the government.”

In the May, 1989 issue of ‘Leading Edge’ (formerly ‘Nevada Aerial Research’) it was stated that:

“...Information about underground bases at Edwards AFB (CA) are not new. Stories have circulated for years. There was the lady whose mother used to work at the cafeteria who overheard people talking about aliens and disks. The constant stream of construction materials going out to the end of the base, but nothing showed up on the surface. NASA has a large underground base that has been there for years.

“’Tube shuttles take personnel 50 miles to the other end of the base in the Tahachapi mountains. The underground base has been referred to as an underground city. It is even said that there are disks stored in glasslike enclosures under a vacuum to preserve them.’”

What may very well be a confirmation of the above appeared in the Dec. 1990 issue of a publication sent out by ‘THE BORDERLAND SCIENCES RESEARCH FOUNDATION’, which has for years been under the direction of Riley H. Crabb. The information was in the form of a letter which we quote here:

“I spent the weekend with a ‘recent’ Edwards AFB workman and his wife—‘recent’ because they are both repeat contactees and have become ‘unmanageable’ as the AFB management puts it. He was fired for blasting a Spybee with spray paint—which I find funny and as classic as the graffiti on New York subway cars.

“’You did it on purpose,’ they told him, and they knew of course, because the Spybees are telepathic (i.e. capable of ‘tuning in’ to Extremely Low Frequency or ‘ELF’ electro-encephalographic neuro-brain waves? - Branton) as well as camera equipment. They also carry microphones. We were all laughing as he told us how the little spray-painted gold orb, blinded, went bouncing off walls and posts and was quickly withdrawn from its spy mission. He said Spybees are about the size of a basketball. They fly by antigravity all over any ‘Above Top Secretinstallation. They dart soundlessly everywhere and hover between workers, sometimes programmed to harass the guys for fun, like bumping them in the rear end.
“No person (that) he and his friends knew about there was allowed to say one word to another while on the job. They would test by trying to write to each other in the floor dust. Within two or three strokes a Spybee would whiz around the corner, lock on to and stop above the writing. His last comment was to write and draw a great big ‘screw you’.

“His painting work was part of an ONGOING EXCAVATION beneath Edwards AFB on the high desert in California. He and his crew were always blindfolded and strip-searched before transit. They couldn’t even have watches. BY TAKING TURNS COUNTING IN THE ELEVATOR GOING TO AND FROM THE WORK SITE, THEY ESTIMATED IT MUST BE SOME 9,000 FEET DOWN, AT LEAST TWO MILES, AND THE TRIP TOOK ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

“Management accused him of doing it on purpose, and they knew... ‘No, no. The Spybee kept bumpin’ the back of my neck while I was sprayin.’ After one real hard knock I whirled around with the spray gun still goin’.”


“For part of the night we went ‘foo chasing’, their term for sightseeking UFOs. Tahachapi is where H. Hughes and Northrup Corporations and the USAF have just imported Delta Forces and fleets of black helicopters deployed by the government for top security events coverage. There is no doubt something major is going on up there, even that night.

“The researcher and his team were hoping to see the 30-FOOT VERSION OF THE SPYBEES, as there are growing numbers of reports on these. THEY ARE DESIGNED TO FLY OVER YOUR HOUSE (electromagnetically cloaked in a similar manner as was discovered during the ‘Philadelphia’ experiments? - Branton), CARRYING SURVEILLANCE BEAMS FOR THOUGHT/EMOTION CONTROL AND BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION. (Note: Since thoughts and emotions may be to some extent electromagnetic in nature, it may be possible for them to be manipulated by EM rays - Branton).

“...I often see Terra now as in near-final throes of exactly the H.G. Wells scenario where the unwilling and witless 90% of mankind inhabits a play-fantasy world on Earth’s surface, while the split-off race of highly technical degenerates (in league with and/or controlled by the serpent race - Branton), the Trogs, prey on them from underground...”
