from 20kWeb Website References: The lecture is by Hartwig Hausdorf, German author of UFO & Ancient Astronaut Theory,

it was given on August 9, 1997 at Lucy & Orlando Pl house in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Ladies and Gentlemen, During the last years, lot of dogmatic truths were pushed down from their throne, because there are indications that our past was more fantastic than we can imagine. Light fell down on so many mysteries from millenniums long gone. Let me take you on the trace of two enigmas from Ancient China. I want to begin with a mystery of the Century which allegedly was discovered 60 years ago. Its ranking around a UFO-crash that probably happened at a time 12,000 years prior to now a "Chinese Roswell" if you like this term. First I will like to introduce you to that intriguing story. It was at the turn of the year 1937 to 1938, when an expedition led by archeologist Chi Pu-Tei came across the pathless mountain area of Bayan-Kara-Ula, located in the Chinese province of Qinghai. In some caves, they discovered lots of tombs with numerous strange looking skeletons buried inside. All the buried had an abnormal big head, along with a small, thin and fragile body. There were no epitaphs at the graves, but a number of 716 stone disc with strange-looking hieroglyphs on them. From a hole in the center of each disk, a spiral-like groove went to its rim, and the archeologist had no idea which information were hidden in these hieroglyphs. It was not before the early sixties, when Beijing fellow of the Academy of Sciences, Professor Tsum Um Nui, succeeded in translating some passages of the inscriptions on the stone discs. But when completing on his report, lots of trouble came to the brave man: The Academy of Sciences banned his publication of the result of his research work. Its not surprising when we consider the unusual conclusion, that Tsum Um Nui and four assistant fellows came upon: They were certain that the hieroglyphs on the stone-disks were talking about the crash of an alien spacecraft, that happened in this mountain area some 12,000 years prior to now! After lots of quarrels and fights, Tsum Um Nui got the permission to publish his work. Herein, he told the story of alien beings called DROPA, who crashed down in the Baya-Kara-Ula mountains after a long space flight and had no possibility to repair their craft. The scientific establishment considered the whole story as nonsense, and Professor Tsum Um Nui was said to be a complete fool. What the skeptics ignored was the fact, that in the Qinghai province, in the area of Bayan-Kara-Ula mountains, old traditions tell about small and skinny, ugly beings with big and clumsy heads, who came down from the skies a long time ago. People have always been afraid of the strange-looking invaders from the clouds. So shortly after publishing his report, Professor Tsum Um Nui emigrated to Japan. Embittered from the reactions from the scientific establishment, he died shortly after completing a manuscript about the stone-diskmystery. There was much criticism on Tsu Um Nuis person. Skeptics said, that the name of the Professor does not exist in Chinese language, neither in Mandarin nor in Canton Chinese. But in my book "Satelliten der Gotter" (Satellites of the Gods), co-authored by Peter Krass, we could point out from where the name was originating. A friends wife, born in Singapore and speaking fluently Japanese, told us, that Tsum Um Nui is a former Japanese name, but adapted to Chinese language. Now think about German immigrants in America: Their former names was Herr Schmid now their name is adapted to Mr. Smith. Consequently Japan was the right place for the Professor to retire from his enervating defeat in China. Primary source for the report on the Bayan-Kara-Ula findings are information coming from Japan. They were first published in German in the July, 1962 issue of the magazine "Das vegetarische Universum". And here the ends could meet one day: In the summer of 96 the book Satellites of the Gods was published in Japan. Peter

Krassa and me hope that Japanese readers could give us new information on the late Professor Tsum Um Nui. Where is his burial place? And which library contains his reports on the translation of the stone disc-hieroglyphs of Bayan-Kara-Ula? What was obvious for a short times duration but lost again by now, are two of those mysterious artifacts. An Austrian engineer had the opportunity to make these photographs in 1974, when he was on a guided China-tour. In Banpo-Museaum in Xian, the capital of the Province of Shensi, he came across two discs which exactly met the descriptions we know from the BayanKara-Ula report from 1962 and upcoming publications. And he could even recognize hieroglyphs in spiral-like grooves but partly crumbled way. Knowing of the artifacts background, Mr. Wegerer asked the former managers of Banpo-Museum for more details on the pieces in the showcase. I guess he caused a lot of trouble, because the poor woman didnt know what to say. She was able to tell a complete story about all the other artifacts made from clay, but all she could explain about the stone disc was that they are but unimportant "cult objects". Anyway - the Austrian engineer was allowed to take one of the discs in his hand make photographs of both of them. Ladies and Gentlemen, the photographs Im showing in this lecture are the only existing in the world, made of the BayaKara-Ula stone platters. Mr. Wegerer estimated their weight at one kilogram or two pounds, and the diameter at 28 to 30 centimeters, thats one foot. And theres been all of the details reported: A hole in the center plus strange hieroglyphs. I regret theyre not to be seen here on the photographs, because they are crumbled away partly and - for second reason - Mr. Wegener used a Polaroid camera with integrated flash. This wasnt quite good for the contrast of the photograph. Peter Krassa got these photographs not before the end of the eightys. And this was the status quo when Peter and me tried to take up trace of this mystery of the Century directly in China. It wasnt that easy to do research work on an event that could be compared easily with the Roswell Case in the United Sates. Meanwhile, China had suffered under the "Proletarian Cultural Revolution" that raged from 1966 till 1976. Lots of people and innumerable cultural objects of value fell victim to this ruthless rage. Im sure this was the reason for a great number of artifacts to be dislocated from the Capital Beijing into the provinces. In March, 1994, Professor Wang Zhijun, Director of the Banpo-Museum, welcomed us for a discussion on the stone disc. At first, he wasnt willing to give us further details, but after a while he revealed shocking information. His predecessor, the above-mentioned manager, was called away from her job just a few days after Mr. Wegerer had visited the museum, without giving her any reason. Shes vanished since that, and both from her and the two stone discs, any trace is missing! What happened to the woman? I dont know. But I had feeling that Professor Wang Zhijun didnt feel well during our inquiry. When we asked for the artifacts present place, he told us the following (I quote): "The stone discs youve mentioned do not exist, but being extraneous elements in this pottery museum, they were dislocated." (End of Quotation) Isnt it a strange phenomenon making such a turn in just one sentence? For objects that do not exist officially, the Bayan-Kara-Ula stone-patters are surprisingly concrete. Professor Warg Zhijun showed us a book about archeology where we could find this sketch of a stone-disk. Is it only a phantom that Im running after?

Nearly unknown in German-speaking countries is the content of the book Sungods in Exile, published in 1978 by a certain David Agamon. This book pretends to be a documentary in the 1947 expedition of the eccentric scientist Dr. Karyl Robin-Evans from England. He allegedly succeeded in reaching Bayan-Kara-Ula mountain range in Central China and found a dwarfish people in there, called DROPA". On his way through uncanny regions, he wrote, his Sherpas left him frightened by disturbing incidents. But anyway: The Chi-Pu-Tei expedition in the late thirties reported in fact, that Bayan-Kara Ula region is avoided by the people living around, because of some uncanny inhabitant there. Under great efforts Robin-Evans reached his goal - and pretends to have a sensational finding. According to the book Sungods in Exile, he found a few hundred members of dwarfish people, 4 ft. in average, living in a remote valley of that mountain area. He stayed there for half a year, learned their language and was introduced in history and traditions of the dwarfish beings. They told him that their ancestors came from a planet from Sirius, and crashed down in this mountain area a long time ago. Lots of them lost their lives, but the survivors were used to living conditions of this planet. If the details are correct - or at least, theres true essence behind the weird story - it is to be supposed that descendants from alien visitors could still exist in remote areas of Central China. Could they look like these two in 1947? Have a look on their faces - and be aware, that they were just 4 ft. tall.

A few months ago I got a letter from Ukrainian scientist Dc. Vladimir Rubtsov. He wrote, that Sungods in Exile was a science-fiction story, designed to fool those among us who are credulous to each and every story about alliance and that stuff. Science-fiction stories, rumors and legends. After all with a true essence? In this case, uncanny legends took shape - and since the end of 1955, the events went head over heels! It began with news from Associated Press, coming from China in November, 1995. It was just a week after Ive been fiercely attacked by a skeptic, while talking about Bayan-Kara-Ura UFO-crash in German TV talk show. In Sichuan Province, Central China, some 120 dwarfish beings were discovered - with the tallest among them to be 3 ft. 10 inch, and the smallest adult to be 2 ft 1 inch! Its really incredible - scientists are helpless: some of them think about poisoned environments, others presume a certain genetic configuration to be the reason for their stunted growth. Maybe they are right... Thrilling news, that introduce a new era in the research work on the Bayan-Kara-Ula mystery. Meanwhile I could find more details on this, and Im pretty sure this could be the last living descendant of UFO-crash survivors from 10,000 B.C. 120 dwarfs cannot be created only by chance, as the probabilities for stunted growth is one case among 20,000 all we know about the theory of probability is against chance! Poisoned environments are not practicable as well, since the "Village of the Dwarfs" is far away from major cities and industries. I got this information from two faxes sent by Chinese Tourist Administration, and from several telephone calls with Secretary of the Chinese Ambassador in Bonn, Mr. Dai. In January, 1997, a new theory leaked from Chinese ethnologist - revealing their helplessness in a case that grows more and more mysterious. They attributed the dwarfism to a high concentration of mercury * in the soil, that poisoned the drinking water for generations. * Whether the mercury had anything to do with stunted growth or not, it is interesting to hear that there is a "high concentration of mercury in the soil" in that area. Sanskrit texts are filled with references to gods who fought battles in the sky using ancient crafts called Vimanas which were powered by mercury! -- webmaster Norbert Felgenhauer, PH. D. at the Munich Institute for Toxic Surgery, stated this theory to be absolute nonsense! Mercury is a malicious poison, harmful to any organs in our body. Perhaps some among us can remember the disaster that happened in the sixties, leaving a trace of misery in the Japanese town of Minamata. Some factories had introduced water contaminated with mercury into the sea, and the people were badly poisoned from the fish they have eaten. Lots of them died after agonizing, long-term sickness. But theres one thing mercury is not able to: Its not possible to change the human DNA, carrier of all the vital information. Mercury is not able to cause hereditary decease! It is significant for the information I got from China that the authorities did not deny the existence of the "Village of the Dwarfs" - but they kept on directing me to the fact that the place isnt open to foreigners. So I can be sure, that in case of being some kind of ghetto, Chinese Government would have denied any existence of that place. On the contrary: they admitted that scientists are simply helpless, and the evidence is clear if you read between the lines! Last but not least the so-called "Village of the Dwarfs" is located only a few hundred kilometers east of BayanKara-Ula mountains, almost near the east spur. At this point, Chinese provinces Qinghai and Sichuan are adjoining.

Basing on these information, I can offer two possibilities: First: Not long ago, the tribe called DROPA decided to migrate from the high altitudes from BayaKara-Ula mountains, here theyve been hidden for thousands of years, into lower parts of the country. This could have happened in 1995. Second: Not long ago, Chinese authorities forced them to migrate in order of better supply and control, and also for study purposes. For the second possibility would result in denial by Chinese Officials, Id prefer the first of them. But anyway: The little beings must have been isolated for a very long time, otherwise they would have mixed up with other tribes or races. In this case, they would be taller by now! The discovery of these beings is the preliminary culminating point of a story haunting our literature since more than 30 years. But I could - in addition to this - find out more indications for the existence of dwarfish people in this Central Chinese mountains. Mr. George Dendl from Berlin, who takes a doctors degree in History, found a report from the year 1911 that spoke about repeated sightings of extremely dwarfish beings in Tibet and its Central Asian neighborhood. I received additional information from another part of the world. When holding some lecture in Australia in June, 1996, I was contacted by a young couple one eve in Brisbane. They told me about their grandfather, who was on duty with the Allies in Central China during World War II. Until he died, he never ceased talking about several encounters he had with members of an extraordinary dwarfish tribe in Central China. According to his reporting, these dwarfish folks were far smaller than the Pygmies from Africa, who usually grow by 4 ft 8 up to 5 ft. These latest and dramatic news cry for intensive research work. I have resolved to do my very best to clean up the mysterious incident that happened thousands of years ago in a remote mountain area in Central Asia. Its the "Chinese Roswell" that demands for enlightenment, as well! But lets talk about another archeological sensation from Central China - lets have a profound look at the Chinese pyramids, which were denied for a long time. But they do exist. It was in spring 1945, and the days of World War II, were nearly over. There were still some Japanese Troops in China, but the U.S. Army and her Allies were on duty to expel them out of the Eastern Empire. One of these days, Air-Force-Aviator James Gaussman is boarding his aircraft. He got some routine order - to fly over Qui Lin Shan mountain southwest of Xian city. But for the aviator this day is predestined to become the most exciting day of his life. When flying over the high valleys of Qin Lin Shan mountains, he suddenly became aware of a fantastic building: He saw a huge pyramid. Knowing that none would believe him without proof he took a photograph of the gigantic object. After his return the photograph was developed, and both the evaluation of the photo and the pilots testimony brought a very shock: The pyramids height was 300 Mts. - about 1000 feet - with a length at its base equivalent to half a kilometer! For long years the photograph vanished in the Army Intelligence file.

Two years later. Another U.S. aviator, the late Maurice Sheaha, came across that region. Sheaha was a TWA manager in those days, and this time the paper hooked into the story: "U.S. Flier Report Huge Chinese Pyramid In Isolated Mountain Southwest Of Sian" was the New York Times Headline of march 28, 1947. Sheahan estimated its height at 1,000 feet like Gaussman did two years before, and located the pyramid 40 miles southeast of Xian. In those days, Mao Tsetungs communist party fought for predomination, and when the Peoples Republic of China was declared on 1st October, 1949, it became impossible to confirm the pyramids existence. Certainly, there were rumors, but archeologists usually judged them to be complete nonsense. In the sixties, aviator Bruce Cathie from New Zealand tried to do some research work on the officially not existing pyramid of China. Basing on some reporting and - allegedly using top secret satellite photograph - he made this map with 16 Chinese pyramids. Ive coloured them green, so you can easily recognize the pyramids position. And, by the way, I know it better: This area contains more than 100 pyramids - thats three times as much as there are in Egypt!

The original map for this lecture was not available, but this photo of the area shows over 70 pyramids with the largest, Mount Li (circa 210 B.C.), being 15 stories tall (1,500 feet!) Lets change the scenery. 1994 was the year of the breakthrough in Chinese Pyramids research. First time in March 1994, together with my friend Peter Krassa from Vienna, and another time in October, I finally succeeded to get entrance to those forbidden zones. With these photographs I can prove there are lots of pyramids in China. They are usually flattened at the top, like those pyramids we know from Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. When archeologist found the remainders of those buildings, they looked the same way as these Chinese ones do. We could photograph dozens of them in the plains west of Xian City. On this photograph you can see a very fine one that is located one mile from the new Airport Expressway. (Note: In Uxmal, Yucatan, 700 kilometers north of Palenque, there is an oval-shaped pyramid called the House of the Dwarf which according to legend was raised in one night by a dwarf magician. See Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock, chapter 20.) Just a few hundred meters far off, a sad impression. Could this be the pyramids future, when Chinese Government does not protect them from destruction? Some of these old buildings were destroyed by the farmers - you should know that the Chinese Pyramids are not built from stone but from clay, which became very hard during thousands of years. Here you could say its a natural hill, but there arent some in the flat plains of Qin Chuan!

West of Xianyang you can find the pyramid area of Mao Ling. For the 50 kilometers distance from Xian downtown we needed approximately 1 and a half hour by car. It isnt easy to be found: Our guide and driver asked more than 10 people for the right way - and they got more than 20 various answer. But finding the right way to go, you can see the great Mao Ling Pyramid from afar. In the middle of a rural area youd probably not expect such a view. More than 90 meters high, the pyramid is rising, and its shape must have been more perfect some thousand years ago. One thing is obvious looking at some of these pyramids: Just a few years ago, China began planting fast-growing conifers on the slopes of the buildings. What is their intention? Do they want to hide the pyramids on the long-term? Possibly they would say in a few decades, these are but natural hills.* * How many mountains might already conceal ancient, or even pre-ancient, pyramids? Consider the many legends of mysterious beings, lost civilizations, and alien bases hidden in the mountains. Also, there are many stories of people exploring caves in mountains and finding many of the chambers with smooth walls, ceilings and floors. Usually it is assumed that someone planed down the surfaces of the cave, but what if these rooms are part of a buried pyramid? -- webmaster It seems there is a spell on the pyramids of China. My friend Peter Krassa got a cryptic answer when inquiring an archeologist on the planned opening of the pyramids. I quote: "Thats a job for future generations." Ive mentioned it before: Chinese pyramids are flat at the top, like their meso-American counterparts. During my expeditions through Chinas forbidden zones I found this one with a distinct peak. The whole Shensi pyramid area covers more than 2000 square kilometers. But the before-mentioned pyramid which is 300 meters tall is outside that area. Due to latest information, it is located in the immediate vicinity of a launch base of Chinese rocket-program. This could be the reason we were not allowed to set foot on that spot. The greatest number of these ancient buildings I found around the township of Xianyang. Although located near this 500,000 inhabitants city, the pyramids are in nearly deserted from men. But there are lots of pyramids, like this one resembling the Sun pyramid of Toetihuacan, Mexico. Its height is 65 Mts. like the Mexican one, but two sides are longer so it doesnt look that high on the first glance. Look at the groove created by thousands of years of erosion. It is uncanny in this forbidden zone. Like in long-gone past, some peasants are working with wooden ploughs; with their oxen to be the only help instead of modern technical supply. They are working in the shadows of the pyramids rising there by dozens. They probably know very little about gigantic monuments, and Im sure they are not interested in learning more about them. The pyramids are just standing there, making impression of things from another world, from out of our reality. You can imagine being on another planet. From the trees right and left of this pyramids youll get an idea of its immense height. But its pretty unbelievable that the 70 Mts. high monuments is located only three quarters of a mile from Xianyang city limits. Ive been surprised by two facts when climbing upon the pyramids: On the top, theres some kind of crater, and I suppose there was a cavern that collapsed because of erosion during thousands of years.* * I cannot remember exactly where I read it, but one of the eye-witnesses who saw a UFO landing at Area 51, said the craft landed atop a pyramidal structure. -- webmaster But what was far more surprising, was the view from the top. I was able to count 17 pyramids in the immediate vicinity, some of them standing one by one, others on row or clusters. Its amazing: There are pyramids as far you can look! You could even talk about a pyramid city. So Im asking what mysteries from long gone times are waiting for solutions? When standing right upon the top, a bold idea flashed through my head: Why not try to open one of these pyramids? But I was in a forbidden zone, and even trying to do so would bring me into a prison cell. So I refused that idea - thinking about all the denials from the last decade, I feel happy to be the very first who was allowed to see the famous Chinese pyramids, climb upon and make photographs. Could we solve one day the mysteries of the Chinese pyramids? What were they built for? Are they just old, imperial burial mounds? Or are they part of that gigantic system of holy lines, called "Feng-Shui" or "Holy Ways of the Dragon"? These old tradition pointed out the places where a building was to be erected - and where not. Could it be possible that these regulations depend upon the observation of old-time UFOs flying in from outer space? Remember that the Dragon from old Chinese tradition seems to be more technical equipment than some fabulous being. The Dragon usually came down to earth roaring and spitting fire, and was characterized being

made from metal. Thats really not the way fabulous monsters are designed! Professor Wang Shiping from Shensi Historical Museum supposed that the Qui Chuan Pyramids were aligned due to astronomic constellations. As well, they give evidence of an enormous know-how in geometry and mathematics. It was not before 1994, that some pyramids were discovered at Wei Ho River north of Xian. One of them standing nearly exactly on the geometric center of the old Chinese imperious. When scientist checked the position, they became aware that there was only a declination of a few meters to the actual geometric center. For completing on the pyramids, I will give you some information for possible connections to alien intelligence once being on this planet. It was in 1910, when two Australian traders, Oscar Maman and Fred Meyer Schroeder, crossed Shensi Province and suddenly saw some of these pyramids. By the occasion of discussing with an old friar, he told the amazed Australians that the pyramids were mentioned in the oldest records of his monasteries. The records were 5000 years old, and the pyramids not only mentioned but characterized as being very old. 5000 years or even more - thats a very long time. A time, when China was reigned by the so-called old emperors. The old Emperors continuously pointed out that they were not descended from terrestrial ancestry. But they were descended from the so called "Sons from Heaven", who came down to earth a long time ago on their metal-made Dragon from outer space. Yes, from outer space, as the old Chinese tradition point out! So I want to repeat the question: What were the Chinese pyramids built for? Are they standing around to remind us of the old Masters from the Universe, who came down to earth not only to bring culture but to enable us to go our own ways? We usually like to see ourselves as the "Crown of Creation." Maybe these old monuments, standing there for thousands of years, are there for reminding us to the fact, that we are not alone in our universe! I thank you very much for your attention!

During an expedition to the hardly accessible mountain range of Baian-Kara-Ula which lies on the borderland between Tibet and China, the Chinese archeologist Chi Pu Tei discovered several cave burial sites which contained strange, only about 4 feet 4 inches tall skeletons, whose heads were oversized in relation to their otherwise slender frame.

In each of the total of 716 graves he found a stonedisk with a diameter of about 1 foot and a thickness of a third of an inch. These disks were engraved with inscriptions of so far unknown origin. Chi Pu Tei published his

findings stating that the skeletons were those of mountain gorillas and that the disks were added by later cultures, which lead to him being ridiculed by the Chinese archeologist community. 1947: Dr. Karyl Robin-Evans expedition Shortly after World War II the polish professor Lolladoff showed a strange stonedisk to the english scientist Dr. Karyl Robin-Evans. Lolladoff claims to have bought the disk in Mussorie (Northern India) and that it is supposed to be from a mysterious people called the "Dzopa" who had used it for religious rituals.

10

This plate called 'The Lolladoff plate' is a 12,000 year old stone dish found in Nepal. It clearly shows a disk shaped UFO (top of pic, hard to see from the angle of the plate however). There is also a figure on the disc looking remarkably similar to a Grey alien. Notice the spiral galaxy shape as well, with the alien inside it and the ufo at the beginning of it. Galaxies come in spiral shapes and throughout India, Egypt and Peru and other ancient sites the spiral shape is very often seen. This galaxy spiral is probably there to tell us that they flew here from another galaxy, buy more probably the spiral was their symbol signifying their knowledge of the universe, as the spiral is the most widely recognizable shape in the universe and in it's creation. The spiral shape also signifies energy. The spiral is a geometric shape found in many places throughout nature, in many ancient cultures it is portrayed and given great meaning. Two of the most popular spiral shapes however not always circular or curved in shape are the Fibonacci spiral and Golden spiral. The spiral is also well represented through sacred geometry. The spiral holds many mysteries, and its shape is universal, its constant depiction in ancient texts, pictures, and symbology is obviously of great importance. In 1947 the Dr. Robin-Evans made for the "mysterious land of the Dzopa", travelling through Lhasa (Tibet) where he was granted an audience with the 14th Dalai Lama. On the way to the very inaccessible region to the northeast of the Himalaya, the english scientist was abandoned by his tibetian carriers - they were terribly afraid of Baian-Kara-Ula - and only with tremendous effort did he manage to reach his destination.

Image from Evan's book "Sungods in Exile", published four years after he died. After having won the faith of the locals, Dr. Karyl Robin-Evans was assigned a language-teacher in order to introduce him to the basics of the Dzopa-language and so he learned from Lurgan-La, religious guardian of the Dzopa, the history of the Dzopa. Lurgan-La pointed out that they (Dzopa) originally came from a planet in the Sirius-system. There had been - about 20.000 years ago and again in the year 1014 - two exploration missions to earth. In 1014 the crash took place that lead to the accidents survivors being unable to leave earth again. Dr. Karyl Robin-Evans died in 1974. The above report was released in 1978. The Dzopa are often referred to as the Dropa. This is due to the fact that the sound of the second consonant is in between a Z and an R. As Tibet wasnt under the rule of China in 1947, Dr. Robin-Evans trip could easily be arranged. It is well possible that Dr. Robin-Evans was received by a "lineholder" instead of the Dalai Lama directly, a fact which could be used to verify the correctness of Dr. Robin-Evans report. Dr. Robin-Evans report dates the crash to the year 1014, all other sources however talk of a crash 12.000 years ago. This discrepancy remains unexplained so far. According to Lurgan-Las history the Dzopa would appear to be direct descendants of space travelling "aliens" 1968: W. Saitsew & Prof. Tsum Um Nui In 1968 the Russian scientist W. Saitsew published a sensational paper which raised a lot of interest in the subject of extraterrestrials visiting earth in the past. Some of the information presented in his paper were based on the work which Prof. Tsum Um Nui did in 1962. 1962: Prof. Tsum Um Nui

11

In 1962 Prof. Tsum Um Nui managed to partially decode and translate the stonedisks and published his findings, which were so amazing that the academy of sciences in Beijing at first prohibited their public release. Prof. Tsum Um Nuis report told the story of a group of beings - called the Dropa - which had crashed their spaceship in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains 12.000 years ago and who, after realizing their inability to leave earth again, had to put up with a rather hostile environment in order to survive. Prof. Tsum Um Nui published this report after having received permission of the academy to do so, which earned him the mockery of many an archeologist. Saddened by these events, Prof. Tsum Um Nui emigrated to Japan, where he died in 1965. Tsum Um Nui appears not to be a Chinese name but rather a phonetic conversion of a Japanese name. No ethnological minority with the name "Dropa" or "Dzopa" respectively is recorded in China. 1968: W. Saitsews paper "science or phantasy" In the borderland between Tibet and China there is the cave region of the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains. 25 years ago, remarkable finds of tablets with writing and hieroglyphics were made there. Several thousand years ago a people whose looks chinese archeologists are only vaguely familiar with, had been cutting phonograph record like stonedisks out of the hardest granite with a set of completely unkown tools. The 716 stonedisks found so far also have a hole in their center just as phonograph records do. From there, spiralling out towards the rim, are double-grooves. These grooves of course are not like sound-tracks but rather the most peculiar writing-system which has ever been found in China and possibly even the world. It took archeologists and scientists over two decades to decipher it. The contents are so fantastic that the academy of pre-history in Beijing didnt want to publish the report of the scientist Prof. Tsum Um Nui at first. Backed by four colleagues, archeologist Tsum Um Nui stated: "the groove-writing tells of aerial vehicles which, according to the stonedisks, existed 12.000 years ago". In one place it says literally: "The Dropa came down from the clouds with their airgliders. Ten times the men, women and children of the Kham hid in the caves until sunrise. Then they understood the signs and saw that the Dropa came in peace this time." Finds of the Dropa and Kham races have been made earlier already in these mountain caves. Archeologists were and still are unable to ethnologically assign these only up to 4 ft. 4 in. tall humans. There are no similarities with the Chinese, Mongols or Ribetans. One could of course suggest that a few thousand years ago a Kham literate was playing a joke, or that it was mere superstition when he was talking about aircrafts. But then, what does one do about the statement, all sensations excluded, reported in other groove-hieroglyphics of a great mourning about the own airfleets destruction during landing in the very inaccessible mountains and the lack of means to rebuild it. The hieroglyphics of Baian-Kara-Ula appear to be so mysterious to the Chinese archeology that only very careful scientific use has been made of them. On one occasion a sensational discovery had been made. The disks contain a lot of cobalt and other metals. When testing a disk with an oscillograph a surprising oscillation rhythm was discovered, just as if the disks with their groove-writing had once been charged or had functioned as electrical conductors. Nobody can tell whats behind these 12.000 year old stonedisks. Assumptions would be too risky and not objective enough. But one is reminded of the ancient chinese tale of the small and slender yellow people who came from the clouds and were shunned by everyone due to their ugliness large, wide heads and very slender bodies - and hunted by the "men with the quick horses" (Mongols?). In fact there had been finds of grave - and skeleton remains in the caves from 12.000 years ago and its also a fact that these finds, classified as remains of the Dropa and Kham race, carried the signs of a small body frame and very large heads. The very first archeological reports tell of an extinct mountain gorilla species. But has anyone heard of ordered monkey-graves and writing- tablets? In 1940 the archeologist Chi Pu Tei was widely mocked at for

making such a claim. But Chi Pu Tei defended himself by declaring that the stonedisks had been added to the caves by later cultures. The above text is a translation of the original paper written by W. Saitsew and has not been altered in any way.

by Philip Coppens This article originally appeared in Nexus New Times Magazine, in 1995 as well as Frontier Magazine 1.1 (1995) from PhilipCoppens Website Despite speculation about the existence of great pyramids in China, archaeologists and bureaucrats have refused to consider even the rumours about such structures. But recent pictorial evidence proves that Chinas pyramids are indeed real, rivalling those of Egypt and Central America for their age, size and significance. In 1920, historian Henri Cordier wrote: Chinas ancient past is denied both to us and its population. Its grand past is slowly unveiled, similar to how Egypts was revealed. Later on, one learned of buildings, standing stones and other monuments that were not mentioned by the Chinese historians (as part of their history).

The largest country in the world was, and is, largely there to be discovered. Though accepted as a great civilization, its ancient treasures were barely known. One rumor spoke about pyramids that could be found in desolate areas. One such pyramid was photographed in 1947 by Col. Maurice Sheehan from a DCS airplane. His story was printed in The New York Times in March of the same year. Sheehan stated it rose to about 300 meters, its sides 450 meters long. The next day, the Los Angeles Daily Express ran Sheehans photograph. But a few days later, the Associated Press received a letter from the authorities of the province of Nankin, stating, the existence of such pyramids is not backed up by evidence. That press release discredited Sheehans story, as most authors and researchers believed Sheehan had exaggerated. French author Patrick Ferryn stated: the photographs do not reveal any markings that would allow us to measure the true dimensions. Its height was probably an incorrect estimate. It is probably a burial vault; it definitely looks like one. The 1950s and 60s had shown the world the existence of many ritual platforms and artificial hills in China, identical to pyramids in appearance except in terminology. Pyramids have a magical appeal to many. Bruce Cathie also became interested in the Chinese pyramids and wrote on the subject in The Bridge to Infinity. Cathie reported that a member of the Chinese Embassy had officially informed him there were no such things as pyramids in the Shensi province: There are a few tumuli (burial hills), but no pyramids. He knew nothing about the existence of pyramids in China.

A letter from Chinese authorities, dated 1 November 1978, addressed to Cathie, stated the scientists had learned that the so-called pyramids were burial tombs of emperors of the Western Han dynasty. Records give a different version of the emperors lives. As the graves have not been scientifically analyzed and no markings were seen on the ground, it is difficult to formulate conclusions. Still, there were historical records that spoke of pyramids. The head of the Tsin-family, Che Houang-ti (the Yellow Emperor, the first to hold that title), changed Chinese society dramatically. He built the Chinese Wall upon listening to an oracle that prophesied a barbarian would attack China. By 1974 the Emperor had again risen to popularity with the discovery of his subterranean mausoleum. It contained no less than 6,000 terracotta warriors that were stored in combat mode and believed to be intended as protection for the deceased Emperor in his new existence. Historian Sseuma Tsien (135-85 BC) wrote that this Emperor united China and destroyed all ancient writings as a sign of the new era that was born. Some old books were apparently saved, mainly in Taoist temples. Che Houang-ti ordered 700,000 people to build him a pyramid at Lin-tong, between Hnan and Si-ngan. The Segalen mission, a tour of China that Segalen made in 1913, measured the pyramids height at 48 meters, encompassing five terraces. One side measured 350 meters, 120 meters longer than the side of Great Pyramid at Gizeh, Egypt. With 1,960,000 cubic meters, it is fourth largest pyramid in the world. The pyramid at Cholula, Mexico, and the two largest pyramids at the Gizeh plateau precede it. The Emperor possibly died in 210 BC. When his treasures were stored in the pyramids, it was decided the workers would be sealed inside the pyramid so no one could reveal where the pyramid was situated. Plants were planted on its sides so the pyramid would eventually take on the appearance of a natural hill. Sseuma Tsien wrote that subterranean streams of lead engulfed the pyramid, the ceiling depicted the sky, and the ground showed the expanse of the Empire. Crossbows were aimed at trespassersa burglar alarm which wasnt that successful, as General Hiang Yu was able to loot the pyramid in 207 BC. The Segalen mission revealed more pyramids and tombs along the River Wei. These were dated to the Han period, following that of Emperor Che Houang-ti. As these were relatively recent pyramids, the scientists did want to entertain the notion that these burial hills might be pyramids, but, as mentioned, there were rumors of taller and more ancient ones.

In 1912, Fred Meyer Schroder and Oscar Maman traveled to Shensi. They not only dealt in tobacco and candles but also supplied the Mongolians with weapons. Their guide along the Chinese-Mongolian border was a monk, Bogdo (the holy one), who told them they would soon stumble upon some ancient pyramids. Though he himself had never seen them, he knew some could be found around the old town of Sian-Fu. Mountains as high as the sky. They are no ordinary burial vaults, though emperors or empresses might be buried inside. Bogdo knew seven pyramids had been discovered. Schroder estimated the tallest one measured 300 meters high, its sides 500 meters long. This would mean this pyramid was the largest in the world, twice as large as the Great Pyramid at Gizeh. The volume was 20 times as large as the Great Pyramid at Gizeh. Both were built north-south/west-east. In the past, they were apparently partly covered with stones, but those have disappeared. A few stones lie at the bottom. It is an earthen pyramid, with giant gullies on its sides. They were the reason why the stones loosened and fell down. Its sides are now partially covered with trees and shrubs. It almost looks a natural hill. We rode around the pyramid, but did not discover any stairways or doors. When questioned, Bogdo believed it was at least 5,000 years old. Their ancient records claimed that even then the pyramids were old. A US Air Force map detailing the area around the city of Xian, made with the use of satellite photographs, shows at least 16 pyramids. Xian, the ancient Sian-Fu, presently inhabited by more than six million souls, is much older than Peking (Beijing). Once it was the capital of the Empire: it was recognized as the umbilicus of Chinas civilization. Hartwig Hausdorf and his company of fellow travelers landed at the new Xian airport and, driving to the city and their hotel, saw one pyramid which stood along the road. It had been discovered a few years earlier, when Xians airport was relocated and a road to the city was engineered.

This pyramid would not even be the icing on the cake for Hausdorf who was passionate about Chinas ancient history. In October 1994 he had climbed one pyramid and was able to count 20 more pyramids, all lying in the immediate vicinity. Yet, in March 1994 he had climbed that same pyramid and had seen only some of those pyramids.

15

Its amazing how the weather in March didnt allow me to see those pyramids. In October it was perfectly clear weather, and more revealed themselves. Hausdorf is not really flabbergasted no-one knew about the existence of such pyramids: China has still a lot of mysterieseven the local population quite often isnt aware of them. Its a small miracle I received the go-ahead to enter some no go areas. I was, in fact, the only one who was granted such favors. I assume there are two reasons for this. I regularly visit China with a group of tourists. In 1993, I became acquainted with Chen Jianli, an avid researcher of his countrys past. He assured me he would try and open a few doors inside the Chinese Ministry of Tourism. In fact, in March 19941 was able to visit some former no go areas in the Shaanxi-province. I passed around some copies of my German book, Die Weisse Pyramide (The White Pyramid), to the right people. I talked to archaeologists who at first denied any pyramids existed, but finally recognized they did exist. I was most pleased when the same people gave me further permission to enter other no go zones when I returned in October 1994. I never expected any of this would happen to me. But it seems it had to happen eventually. Following decades of rumor, someone had to clear the picture. To detail his problems, in March 1994 Hausdorf met Professor Feng Haozhang (a prominent member of Beijings academic circle), his assistant, Xie Duan Yu, and three colleagues. At first they denied the pyramids existence. But when Hausdorf showed them three photos of three different pyramids, they caved in. Hausdorf described his encounter: It was as if I had entered a hive. The photographs I took in both March and October 1994 are the proof that squelched five decades of rumor. Most scientists denied the existence of pyramids in China. If any scientist still clings to that, show him my photographs. Still, China will not give up all its mysteries that easily. Several pyramids probably remain undiscovered, their existence perhaps even unknown to the Chinese scientists. One mystery, however, definitely lingers on. At the end of the Second World War, pilot James Gaussman had to adjust his course due to engine problems. He tried to reach his base in Assam, India, having dropped off supplies inside China. As he turned around one mountain-top, a giant pyramid rose in the valley in front of him. It was white, made out of metal or stone. According to Gaussman it would have fitted perfectly in any fairy tale. A jewel-like stone crowned its top. Though I wanted to set my plane on the ground and investigate, there was no way I could land it on that terrain. Gaussman flew three times around the structure, photographing the pyramid with the same camera with which hed just photographed hostile troop movements. During his debriefing in Assam, he told his intelligence officer the world would be stunned when they learnt about that pyramid. There was nothing around it, just this pyramid in the middle of nowhere. I think its extremely ancient. Who built it? Why? Whats inside? Hausdorf and all in search of the White Pyramid have never been able to rediscover it. Gaussmans photograph was developed and filed in a military archive where it remained for the next 40 years until Australian Brian Crowley published the photograph in his book, The Face on Mars. Who built these pyramids? Bruce Cathie thinks he might know more. Using his harmonics, he believes there is a mathematical connection between the pyramids in China and the pyramids of Egypt. The number 16944 is present inside the Great Pyramid of Gizeh, he states, and there are 16944 minutes of arc between the longitude of the Great Pyramid at Gizeh and that of the tallest pyramid at Shensi. Their dispersal along the river reminds him of the placement of the pyramids in Egypt along the River Nile. Cathie believes that it is evidence that the pyramids were built by the same people. He also wonders whether the decades-long silence surrounding the pyramids was to allow the Chinese scientists to discover whether such a connection did indeed exist.

16

Hartwig Hausdorf spoke to Professor Wang Shiping who believes the pyramids have an astronomic alignment and could be dated to 1,500-500 BC. Records of that time speak of the emperors descending from heaven in flying dragons. And so Hausdorf has stumbled upon another fairy tale, of emperors descending from heaven, which scientists think is impossible. Rest assured, Hausdorf will also try to find out whether that rumour is real or not.

by Laura Lee Atlantis Rising Number 11 - Spring 1997 Pyramids and pyramidal structures are a worldwide phenomena, found in Egypt, Peru, Central America, America's Mississippi Valley, France, Polynesia. Now we can add two more locations, China and Japan. For decades, one of the few clues that China has pyramids was a grainy, black and white photo of a huge, shadowy, pyramidal form. It is an aerial shot, taken by WWII USAF pilot James Gaussman, as he flew over China delivering supplies from India to Chungking, in the spring of 1945.

Today, thanks to German researcher and author Hartwig Hausdorf, we have many more photos, plus videotape and his eyewitness report of at least a hundred pyramids in China's Shensi Province. An e-mail message hooked me up with Hausdorf. By telephone and fax, we've been corresponding, and he was kind enough to send me two of his books in German. (Will someone please publish his books in English so I can read them?) My friend Jo Curran, fluent in German, read me selected portions of Satellites of the Gods for this article. Hausdorf's other book is entitled The White Pyramid. Hausdorf will be a guest on The Laura Lee Show, the Saturday Night radio show I host, on August 2nd. Here's what I can say thus far. Hausdorf came by his invitation to Xian, China, and the Chinese pyramids, when he attended a lecture by Erich von Daniken. A personal friend who wrote the foreword to one of his books, von Daniken was the first to bring the ancient astronaut theory to worldwide prominence through a series of popular books. It was at this lecture that he met Chen Jianli. They talked about Hausdorf's research dealing with mysterious artifacts in China, including pyramids. Mr. Chen was born in Xian, and so, despite the official party line, did not consider pyramids in China to be nonsense; as a young boy, he had heard people talk of them. Through his connections in the Chinese capitol, Mr. Chen obtained a special permit for Hausdorf to travel in Xian's forbidden zones. Not once, but twice; in March and October of 1994. The Chinese don't like to talk about their pyramids. Hausdorf couldn't help but notice that, in talking with high ranking archeologists at the Beijing Academy of Sciences about these pyramids, the reaction was one of panic. Only when shown the Gaussman photo would they reluctantly confirm the existence of just a few pyramidal structures, near Xian. That's where Hausdorf found, not a few pyramids, but ninety to one hundred such structures. There are signs that that attitude is changing. The October 1996 issue of China Today, an official periodical issued in Chinese, German, English, Arabic and French, contains an article about Hausdorf's second expedition through the Shensi pyramids. It was there that Hausdorf found pyramids either made of, or covered with, clay that has become nearly stonehard over the centuries. They are undecorated, and partly damaged by erosion and farming. A few have carved stones standing in front of them. What of stone pyramids? That is found in Shandong. It has no steps. It is 50 feet tall, with a small temple at its apex, designed along the golden proportion. How old are these pyramids? Prof. Wang Shiping of Xian estimates they are 4,500 years old. Hausdorf believes they are older, and tells of the diaries of two Australian traders. They were there in 1910 or 1912 and came across some of the pyramids, writes Hausdorf. When asking an old Buddhist monk, they were told, that the pyramids are not just mentioned in the 5,000-year-old records of his monastery, but said to be very old. That means, they are at least more than 5,000 years old! In investigating what the Chinese authorities will reveal about the pyramids, Hausdorf was told the story of an emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi, who lived between 259 and 210 B.C. Prior to his reign, bitter feuding between rival states for dominance over a splintered China went on from 475 to 221 B.C. It was Emperor Huangdi who ended the fighting. And thanks to the commentaries of historian Sima Qian, who lived from 145 to 86 B.C., we know the existence and location of the emperor's grave, beneath a hill 150 feet tall, planted with grass and trees. The hill, apparently, is man-made. According to Sima, beneath this hill is a 140-foot-tall pyramid with five terraces. The historian's chronicles state that almost 700,000 workers worked on this tomb. The earth was removed down to ground water level. This floor was then poured with molten bronze. On this platform a stone sarcophagus was laid. When the structure was completed, those who knew where the entrance was were silenced; they were entombed alive. To further disguise it, the pyramid was carefully covered with earth and grass to give the impression of a natural hill. The pyramid's interior was quite elaborate. Sima wrote of an artificial universe painted with stars impressed upon the ceiling of the chamber in which the emperor lies. There was an entire landscape with rivers made out of mercury, somehow held in constant motion. The tomb is well protected against grave robbers, utilizing quite an ingenious security system. Crossbows with mechanical triggers make up an automatic shooting gallery, with a hail of arrows targeting intruders. For a long time, these historical commentaries were considered as mere legends.

18

But new excavations around the outer perimeter of this hill seemed to confirm Sima's chronicles, an analysis of the earth from the immediate area of the great pyramid revealed an exceptionally high concentration of mercury. It would seem the archeologists are taking the stories seriously, as they are reticent to work around this ancient emperor's high-security tomb. We are leaving this tomb under the hill to the future, so the next generation has something to work on, says one of the leading archeologists. Still, this emperor lived two thousand, not five thousand years ago, so such stories of elaborate tombs cannot explain all of China's pyramids. This is the only one that they can pin with a date and a purpose. The others are complete mysteries. Wang Shiping is one of the Chinese archeologists looking beyond the standard issue explanations. He has found that one of the newly discovered pyramids is very nearly located at the exact geographical middle point of the country, and concludes that the ancient Chinese must have had astounding methods of measuring. He has also found that on the whole, the pyramids are oriented towards the stars. Which makes sense, after all, some of the oldest records of astronomical observations are Chinese. They were also wise to the ancient knowledge of Feng Shui, geomancy, still practiced today. Wang notes that the orientation of the pyramids up to the time of the Han dynasty, is with their main axis east-west. After that, they were all oriented north-south. Why that is, he cannot say, but is sure it must have a meaning, because the Chinese didn't do anything without consulting the Feng Shui. Hausdorf also tells the story of how our astronauts saw these pyramids from space. On one of the Apollo Missions, an astronaut, while in orbit over China, saw nine unusual dots on the surface, and took several photos. When developed and enlarged, the photos revealed nine very high pyramids, evenly spaced, in the form of a fan. The location, 170 degrees, 39 minutes East longitude, and 34 degrees, 9 minutes North latitude, is the Taibai Shan Mountain, just over 10,000 feet above sea level, the highest point in the Quin-Ling Mountains, a fair distance southwest of Xian. In the 1970s, when communication between the U.S. and China improved, the astronaut went to China. He was interested in seeing those pyramids up close. He succeeded. Chinese authorities told him the pyramids were the graves of nine of the eleven emperors of the western Han era, and dated from 206 to 8 B.C. The height of these graves, according to Chinese sources, can be compared to a 40-story building, around 300 feet. This is comparable to Egypt's Giza pyramids. I'll wager that when mapped, those Chinese pyramids are bound to show a correlation of constellations important to the Chinese, similar to that demonstrated by Robert Bauval in Egypt, the three pyramids of Giza are aligned to one another and to the Nile, in imitation of the three belt stars of the constellation Orion, and historically, as they were aligned to the Milky Way. Hausdorf's work in the travel industry allows him to move around the world three months of every year, chasing down evidence in support of the ancient astronaut theory. He has turned up evidence for an ancient, alien influence on several Far-East cultures, Chinese, Japanese, Tibetan, and Mongolian. He believes that alien influence can be traced to the present, to modern-day UFO cases. In both his books, he has a chapter on UFO cases in China, including abductions. (Nice to know the UFOnauts aren't just harassing Americans.) One of the most controversial stories is what Hausdorf calls the Chinese Roswell. It involves a UFO crash, not in 1947, but, according to estimates, 12,000 years ago! At least that's the translation, as read by Prof. Tsum Umnui, of the strange hieroglyph on artifacts found in 1938 by Chinese archeologist Chi Pu Tei. The hieroglyphs wind from center to rim on some of the large granite stone disks, 716 of them, found in graves in the Bayan-Kara-Ula mountains. The skeletons in the graves measure at most four feet four inches tall, with heads too big for the frail looking bones. Legends in the area tell of strange yellowish, skinny humanoid beings with big heads that came from the heavens a long, long time ago. For the rest of this story, and there's plenty more to it, tune in to the interview with Hausdorf on August 2. Then there are the structures found recently off the coast of Japan. In the spring of 1995, divers looking for clear water heard about a remote island in Okinawa. There they came across huge stone terraces, cut in right angles, punctuated by perfect staircases, precisely cut lanes, and hexagonal columns. So far, five separate sites on three different islands have been found, all 60 to 75 feet under the sea. Frank Joseph, author of Lost Pyramids of Rock Lake and editor of Ancient American magazine, went to Japan to investigate, and reports that the most accessible site is 170 meters from the southwest end of Okinawa, off the shore near Chatan. Other sites are just off the shore of Aguni Island and Yonaguni island, where a pyramidal

19

platform 80 meters long and 20 meters high, with its tip only 5 meters before the sea's surface, was found. The structures, spread over a 500 kilometer area, seem to be oriented due south. Joseph likens the sites to the pre-Inca city of Pachacamac, a huge, sacred city with multi-stepped pyramids build at right angles, located just outside of Lima, Peru, and the architecture of the Moches ceremonial center near Trujillo, Peru. Joseph also points out that James Churchward, who wrote extensively about Mu or Lemuria, predicted that remnants of a powerful civilization centered in the Pacific Ocean would eventually be discovered. The Japanese are quite open to theories involving Mu; it is compatible with their own ancient traditions. And Joseph believes it is not mere coincidence that the names of Japan's first emperors contain a mu; Jimmu, Timmu, Kammu, are but a few. Mu translates to that which does not exist in Japanese. Edgar Cayce talks more about Atlantis than Mu, says Joseph, but he did say that at one time, a land mass, and he never referred to Mu or Lemuria as a continent, always a land mass, was physically connected to South America. We now have scientific verification of this. Scripps Oceanographic has just put out a map of the topography of the ocean, and there, off the coast of Peru, is a sunken archipelago, called the Nasca Rise, that was once above water. Today it is less than a hundred feet below the ocean's surface, and extends for several hundred miles. The ancient Chinese also seemed to know about Mu. In 1900 a Taoist monk came across a cave containing a library, hidden away to avoid the Imperial edict given in 212 B.C. to destroy all texts dealing with the ancient past, which made reference to the Motherland, Mu, and which contained a fragment of an ancient map depicting a continent in the Pacific Ocean. Television and magazines in Japan have had a field day with their underwater cities. Ancient mysteries researcher and translator Shun Daichi sent me a videotape with serious and extensive TV coverage that included a large, beautifully executed scale model of one of the most impressive structures, with a toy boat suspended by a wire to illustrate the height of the sea's surface. Shun reports that you can draw a straight line connecting the underwater sites with on-land sites of similar design, ancient castles of unknown origin. Some geologists are surmising that the last time this area was above water was a minimum of 12,000 years ago, when the Ice Age ice sheets melted, raising the ocean levels. Which leads me to two of the most puzzling questions I have about these extraordinary archeological wonders: Why, in the age of instantaneous global communication, did it take two years for the news to reach us, and why haven't American news reports or archeological institutes reported on these newsworthy finds? by Mark & Richard Wells from EarthQuest Website

While searching through some satellite images of the Xian area, we came across one that appeared to have an arrow on it, we thought strange having an arrow on the ground. On closer inspection we realized that we had found one of the Chinese pyramids, the point of the arrow was really two of the corners of the pyramid and the shaft was a roadway. The original image has a cloud haze covering the whole area, resulting in a very low contrast image. Even so the main pyramid is clearly visible with a smaller pyramid just up to its left. We now used the computer to enhance the image, allowing us to see more detail. There now appeared to be possibly two more pyramids off to the right hand side of the main one. The next task was to see if this pyramid matched any of the ones that had been already photographed by Hartwig Hausdorf. At first we thought no, but we had missed out the old black and white photo from 1947. This image seemed to match perfectly, as you will see.

20

First the basic shape of the pyramid is the same with a flat square top, and the sides also seem to have the same indent at their centre. At the front there is a centre path/road leading away from the pyramid, with two patches of trees, one on either side. The left hand one is not squared of with the pyramid but has a slight diagonal edge towards the centre path that can be seen in both images. One square of trees is missing but all the other shaped areas in front of the pyramid are correct. The objects (trees or houses) in the rear of the pyramid can also be seen in the image. The other nice thing about this image is, we know exactly where it was taken. As you can see on the map ("click" HERE) the original large image cover an area that includes the township of Xian yang. That puts the Pyramid where the letter 'n' is in name Xian yang on the Map.

During our ongoing research in latter part of 1998 we had been using the Internet to search for information on ancient sites around the world. We came across a web site that had new information about Chinese Pyramids. The site had an article by Hartwig Hausdorf called The Exterritorial Legacy, this article gives his own ideas on the origin of the pyramids. The site had a number of Photographs that were taken by the author Hartwig Hausdorf, when he was able to gain access to a number of locations in China that are normally of limits to visitors. This is one of main reasons that so little is know about them, The Pyramids are located in a 100km area around the city Xian, which is well known as the location of the terracotta warriors. These Warriors guard another pyramidal mound that is supposed to be tomb of Chin, the first emperor of China. There could be up to 100 pyramids in this part of China. As there was no survey available for this site or any of the other Pyramid sites in China, we had no choice but to work on the small amount of material that was available. One of the photographs shows a number of pyramids that appear to show some alignment. We decided that this photograph was worthy of closer examination. Using computer technology we first enlarged and enhanced the photo, then printed it out on two A3 sheets, this allowed us to work out an approximate layout of the pyramids on the ground. We now needed to know the cardinal directions relative to the layout of the pyramids. As there was no information available, this might have been a problem. The solution was in part of the enlarged photograph. You can roughly work out the height and therefore the position of the sun by using the length of the shadows made by the trees (about 32 degrees). Now transferring this information and the reference to information form the photographer's article to a Dos version of Skyglobe on the computer, we find it is about 14.30 Hrs in the afternoon and the Sun is in the Southwest. With this information we get an idea of the alignment of the site, with the four central pyramids lying on the east- west axis. Now with the sky ground ideas of Graham Hancock's in his books "Heavens Mirror", and "Keeper Of Genesis", as well as Robert G. Bauval Orion Giza ideas in "The Orion Mystery" fresh in our minds. We studied a number of star maps and the prominent star constellations. It was not hard to notice that our plan of the pyramid layout matched the constellation of Gemini, including the star Betelgeuse from the neighboring constellation of Orion. Also the photograph appears as if it has been taken from the top of another pyramid, if we add this to the plan then you find that it matches the brightest star in Taurus, Aldebaran. Now with all this new information we used Skyglobe on the computer to examine this area of the sky backwards through time and more specifically to the date of 10,500 B.C.. Graham Hancock ideas have shown that this date may have some importance in unraveling the past. We find that the constellation of Gemini is rising on the spring equinox on that date, with the pyramids matching the sky, at sunrise. This was all done with some computer technology and some technical drawing experience, it should be treated as theory at the moment. The only way to confirm our ideas it is to do a professional site survey. We have posted these to get your opinion on our idea as this may help compound the theory of Graham Hancock.

21

With new information and photographs becoming available, we found a second connection with the work of Graham Hancock and Robert G. Bauval, and the Chinese Pyramids. Perhaps you have already seen the two Photorecon pictures of the Pyramids in China that appeared on the web, if not then at least you are now aware of them. Having looked at the two pictures we can see that they are not of the areas photographed by Hartwig Hausdorf. We can only guess at their true size though we get some impression by the agricultural field systems that can be seen around them. We can now take a closer look at the second one, this is a close up from the first photo showing some of the bigger Pyramids. There are a number of basic observations that we can make from this picture, the first is that there are two large pyramids that stand out from the rest. The second observation is that most of the smaller pyramids are arranged in straight lines. The third observation that we can make is possibly less obvious, but could be very important in the understanding of the pyramids. The four largest pyramids create a pattern on the ground; three of them are in a straight line with the forth one being slightly offset. Now if we concentrate on the two larger pyramids and the offset pyramid we find a pattern that has been seen in the pyramids of Giza in Egypt and Teotihuacn in Mexico (by Robert Bauval and Graham Handcock). Now with a basic graphics program we can compare the four images Giza, Teotihuacn (see "Teotihuacn"), China and the Stars of Orion's belt. Details of Orion This can be taken one step further by overlaying all the images to form just one image, the result as you can see is very striking...

This is the second sky ground correlation that we have found in the pyramids of china, we can only guess at the number of other sites that if studied in this way would show similar results. If you find this as fascinating as we do and you won't to find out more, then you should look at the web sites of the founders of these theories, Robert G. Bauval and Graham Hancock. You will need to take into account that these pictures and facts are very rough. The Ancient Egyptians and Chinese only had their eyes to look at the stars in the constellation of Orion, so you can see that being precise to the arc minute and second does not matter in this early work!. The concept of a sky ground correlation is what we are trying to explore at the moment. These ideas could be coincidences, but if they are not then they could be revealing a lost knowledge of past civilizations.

from CyberSpaceOrbit Website Since the end of the Second World War, rumors regarding the existence of giant pyramids in China have been appearing with increasing regularity in the press and literature of many countries. There has been talk of structures whose size puts to shame the Cheops Pyramid of Egypt and the Sun Pyramid at Teotihuacan in Mexico. Ive journeyed deep into China three times to discover the truth behind these rumors. All three times, these pilgrimages have taken me into Shaanxi Province, to an area about 40 miles south-west of the ancient Chinese capital of Xian, in the mountainous Qin Ling Shan region. I was searching for a pyramid which was said to have been, once, many millennia ago, multicolored, and to now be a dusty white. This was a pyramid which, legend has it, rises to the astonishing height of 1,000 feet - fourfifths the elevation of the Empire State Building. Not only was this extraordinary structure said to be the largest pyramid in the world (the Giant Pyramid of Egypt, by comparison, rises a mere 450 feet); but, in the valleys surrounding it, there were said to be dozens of other pyramids, some rising to an elevation almost as great. Until recently, Chinese officials have rebuffed all questions about these pyramids and all requests to view them. And yet, over this century, a certain mythology has grown up around them. An American trader, stumbling upon these amazing structures in 1912, asked his Buddhist monk-guide about them. He was told that 5,000-year-old monastic documents not only contained information about these pyramids, but said the pyramids were extremely old when these records were made. The trader, Fred Meyer Schroder, observed several smaller pyramids in the distance. He wrote in his travel diary that his first sight of the giant pyramid, along with its smaller cousins, rendered him almost speechless.

"It was even more uncanny than if we had found it in the wilderness," he wrote. "But those [ pyramids) were to some extent exposed to the eyes of the worldbut still totally unknown in the western world." In the Far East in the spring of 1945, though Japanese troops were still fighting in China, the U.S. Army and its allies were well on their way to pushing the Japanese off the mainland. One day, U.S. Air Force Pilot James Gaussman was returning to Assam, in India, after having flown the Burma Hump - ferried supplies to Chungking, China, from India - when engine trouble forced him to descend temporarily to a low altitude over China.

James Gaussman photo 1945 As he later wrote: "I flew around a mountain and then we came to a valley. Directly below us was a gigantic white pyramid. It looked as if it were from a fairy tale. The pyramid was draped in shimmering white. It could have been metal, or some other form of stone. It was white on all sides. What was most curious about it was its capstone: a large piece of precious gem-like material. I was deeply moved by the colossal size of the thing." When Gaussman arrived back in Assam, combat duties pushed the sighting from his mind. Photographs he had taken of the giant pyramid would not be published for another 45 years. Till then, even his report would be buried in the Secret Service files of the U.S. military Two years later, in 1947, another U.S. aviator, Maurice Sheahan - this time flying over Shaanxi Province, not far from Xian - caught sight of a giant pyramid in the misty landscape below and rapidly snapped pictures. This time, several U.S. newspapers, including the New York Times for March 28, 1947, published ac-counts of the airmans sighting. But Chinese archaeologists continued to deny the existence of such a structure, even though Sheahans photographs suggested it was higher than any pyramid in Egypt. Captain Bruce Cathie, of Auckland, New Zealand, is an airline pilot turned explorer and UFO investigator. In 1962, reading Schroders diaries, he decided to get to the truth about these pyramids in China. Cathie contacted the Chinese embassy in Wellington. To his surprise, he was told there were no such things as pyramids in China. Later, the authorities acknowledged the existence of such structures, but would not characterize them as pyramids. Rather, they told Cathie, these were trapezoidal burial tombs dating from the Han Dynasty. In his book, The Bridge to Infinity, Cathie sets forth his theory that the Great Pyramid of China - which he was never able to locate - is part of an ancient network of pyramids built at key places around the world to tap the earths natural energies. He suggests that these structures mark the intersecting points of ley lines, or dragon ways. Does Cathie believe these orthotenic lines, to use Aime Michels phrase, represent the flight paths of UFOs, with greatest activity at intersecting points like those of the pyramids? Yes, he does; and he seems to imagine the earth as encircled by UFO flights in the ancient past. Whether what Cathie calls "world grid harmonics" includes in its network the legendary White Pyramid of China or not, it seemed clear to me that the symbol of a white pyramid of China resonated powerfully on a psychic level, that it was at the very least a powerful conduit of psychic energywhether it had any physical reality or not.

But there was no shortage of those who claimed it did. Well-known American traveler and author David Hatcher Childress reports in his writings that archaeological excavations of the White Pyramid have brought to light magnificent jade objects and "green stones." But he offers no corroboration for this provocative statement. Still, along with the stories I have just recounted, I had heard so many vague rumors about the pyramids actual existence, that I resolved once and for all to get to the heart of the matter. Journey into the "Forbidden Zone": The Sixteen Pyramids of Xian And so it was that, in the summer of 1994, I found myself along with my friend and colleague, Austrian journalist Peter Krassa - in a green agricultural area about 50 miles from Xian. It had not been easy for us to get here. We were in one of Chinas "forbidden zones" - it was, we thought, highly probable that we were near a topsecret military base - and we were certainly the only tourists here, and almost the only people. We had managed to get to Xian almost entirely by chance. In Vienna, early in 1994, I had been lucky enough one evening to meet Mr. Chen Jianli, who had come to the Austrian capital to give a lecture promoting tourism in China. I had broached to him the subject of my research into the more mysterious artifacts of China, including its rumored pyramids. My enthusiasm made Mr. Chen smile. It so happened that he had been born in Xian; that was why, despite the official party line, he did not consider the subject of pyramids in China to be nonsense. As a matter of fact, he had, even as a small boy, heard people talking about them. It was his understanding that there was a group of pyramids not far from Xian, all of them at least 2,000 years old, but not all of them necessarily regarded strictly as pyramids. But he didnt know for certain; and people did not-or could not-go to where these structures were supposed to be. And so it was that, after an evening of lively discussion, Mr. Chen Jianli offered to contact his acquaintances and officials at the appropriate ministry in Beijing, and make it possible for me and a small group of interested individuals to obtain permission to travel to this up-till-then forbidden zone in Shaanxi Province. And, through his connections in the Chinese capital, he was indeed able to obtain a special permit for me to travel to the forbidden zone near Xian-not once, but three times; in March and October of 1994, and again in the summer of 1997. Arriving for my first visit, I first spent a brief time in Beijing, where I discovered that the Chinese really do not like to talk about their pyramids. When I brought up the subject with certain high-ranking archaeologists at the Academy of Sciences, I couldnt help noticing a certain anxiety. Only when I showed them the Gaussman photo did they reluctantly confirm the existence of "just a few pyramidal structures near Xian." A few days later, Peter Krassa and I were standing in a green, partially cultivated plain just a mile from the township of Xianyang, and about 40 miles west of Xian, that former imperial capital that is now regarded as the cradle of Chinese civilization.

There was no 1,000-foot-high White Pyramid to be seen. But there were indeed pyramids in this silent plain which did not need my imagination to invest it with a certain magical beauty. Before me stood a beautifully symmetrical pyramid about 200 feet high. Numerous small trees were planted up and down its sides; I had been told that, over the past four or five years, the Chinese had been planting fast-growing conifers-a kind of Cypress treeon the slopes of these pyramids. I wondered briefly what they were trying to hide by making these extraordinary artifacts blend so completely with their surroundings. (alternative explanation given, ostensibly to hold the soil structure in place and prevent it from crumbling... Ash)

I scrambled quickly to the top of this pyramid, the first that we had encountered. The construction of these smaller Chinese pyramids is similar to that of the pyramids of Teotihuacan, near Mexico City: piled earth almost clay, with stepped sides, hardly the spectacular engineering of Pharaoh Khufu. The tops of most of these Chinese structures are flattened off, as is the case with the often-rectangular structures of the Mayans. These Chinese pyramids are undecorated, and significantly damaged by erosion and farming. Their earthen sides-or such was the case with the small pyramid on which I stood-have become almost as hard as stone over the centuries. I noticed that I was standing in a sort of crater, indicating to me that there had once been a cavern in this structure before the elements had caused its roof to collapse. What secrets might lie within this pyramid? It had been vaguely suggested to me that these were burial mounds dating back perhaps 2,000 years. When I had asked the local archaeologist and museum curator in Xian, several days earlier, what work was being done on these smaller pyramids to discover their origins, he had replied: "None. We have been given no money nor instructions. It will have to be for the next generation." At least as exciting for me as this pyramid was the view from its summit. In the distance, I could make out at least 15 other similar pyramids, spread out before me in a panoramic sweep. Some stood in solitary fashion, while others were grouped in twos or even in rows. There were pyramids as far as the eye could see. I wondered what strange events had unfolded in relation to these pyramids in ancient times. Now there was nothing but the green fields, the pyramids, and a silence broken only by the slow movements of the handful of farmers working the ground with ploughs so primitive they must have looked just the same when these pyramids were built.

Chinese Pyramids as Mirrors of the Stars During this visit, and during my second later that year-and on my third in the summer of 1997-I found no evidence for the physical existence of the fabulous White Pyramid of China. But, strolling from one of these time-worn structures to another, I began to feel almost at home in this strange, eerily beautiful, city of the dead? I didnt know; but, as I continued to meet officials and to cautiously feel them out, I began to discover that there were indeed theories about these 16 pyramids near Xian, and that some of these theories were of a decidedly mystical nature. There were seemingly staid government scientists whose views were not entirely dissimilar to those of Bruce Cathie of New Zealand. Professor Wang Shiping, of Xian, who discussed these matters with Peter Krassa and myself near the site of the pyramids, told us he believed they might in actual fact be part of a giant system of sacred lines expressive of the feng shui concept of the ways of the dragon. Dr. Wang said he estimated the age of these pyramids at 4,500 years and that he believed they might have been arranged to mirror the shapes of certain constellations in the night sky, just as certain key pyramids in Egypt are now thought to have been constructed in imitation of the constellation Orion and related stars. The Chinese pyramids near Xian bear witness, suggested Professor Wang Shiping, to the immense knowledge of geometry and mathematics enjoyed by the Chinese of almost five millennia ago. Peter Krassa and I discovered that these are certainly not the only pyramids in China. In January,1994, archaeologists discovered several pyramids near the Wei Ho River, north of Xian. One of them, we were told, is located almost exactly in the geometric center of the ancient Chinese empire. I believe there may be as many as 90 to 100 pyramids in China in all, with the White Pyramid of Xian towering above all the rest - if that enigmatic giant does indeed exist.

27

I discovered that, if scientists and investigators could tell me nothing about the White Pyramid, they all at least had heard that it existed. And I decided that where there is smoke there must be fire, even if the smoke is only the nexus of a resonating cluster of powerful, important, almost-psychic beliefs. The Pool of Mercury in the Tomb-Chamber of the Emperor And so it was that, in seeking to discover the true identity of the White Pyramid, I once more immersed myself in the history of ancient China. I read again the story of the Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi (259-210 B.C.), the man who not only began the Great Wall of China, but standardized his countrys weights and measures, written language, and currency Shi Huangdi is also the emperor responsible for the army of life-sized terra cotta warriors - 8,000 of them in all! which were discovered, beginning in 1974, not far from the burial mound of the emperor himself It is thanks to the Shih Chi (Records of the Grand Historian of China), by the very great Chinese historian Sima Qian (145-86 B.C.), that we can be fairly certain that the emperors grave is located beneath a particular hill 150 feet high and planted with grass and trees. Apparently, the hill is man-made; according to Sima, a 140-foot-high pyramid complete with five terraces lies beneath it. In his Shih Chi, Sima Qian - who really was the Grand Historian of China, though at the court of Emperor Wu states that almost 700,000 workers labored for 20 years to create the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. He says the earth was removed down to the ground water level. Then the floor was poured with molten bronze. A

28

stone sarcophagus was laid on this platform. When the structure was completed, those who knew where the entrance was were silenced by being entombed alive. To further disguise the entrance, the pyramid was covered with earth and grass to give the impression of a natural hill - a strategy which is strangely present in the smaller Xian pyramids of today! The pyramids interior, we are told, is astonishingly elaborate. Sima uses the term "artificial universe" to describe the ceiling of the emperors tomb-chamber encrusted with thousands of glittering precious jewels to recreate the constellations of the heavens. The Grand Historian goes on, "In the tomb-chamber the hundred water-courses, the Chiang [the Yangtze River] and the Ho [the Yellow River], together with the great sea, were all imitated by means of flowing mercury, and there were machines which made it flow and circulate. Above [on the roof] the celestial bodies were all represented; below [presumably on the floor or on some kind of table] the geography of the earth was represented." That is, the emperors tomb-chamber was meant to be a living replica of his empire, including both the earth and the heavens. The tomb was well-protected against grave robbers, with arrays of hundreds of crossbows with mechanical triggers targeted to kill anyone who broke into the tomb. (Just how effective this system was is somewhat in doubt, since the Huang I encyclopedia, edited by Miu Shih-Teng in 220 A.D., claims that robbers from Kuantung later broke into the emperors tomb and made off with all the mercury) Recent excavations around the outer perimeter of this burial hill seem to confirm Sima Qians statements: Analysis of the surrounding earth revealed an exceptionally high concentration of mercury. Apparently, archaeologists are taking seriously the Great Historians description of what amounts to a high-security tomb. They declare, "We are leaving the tomb-chamber under the hill to the future, so the next generation has something to work on." The Secret Society of the White Pyramid How does the extraordinary story of the tomb-chamber of Shi Huangdi relate to the seemingly mythical White Pyramid of Xian? I will explain. I believe that researchers have not concentrated sufficiently on one subtly revealing detail in Simas account: his assertion that Qin Shi Huangdi was to be entombed with his sarcophagus virtually floating in a pool of mercury Yes, the mercury was used to provide a flowing liquid to make it possible for a vast relief map of circulating great rivers and streams of China to run forever in the tomb-chamber of the Emperors mausoleum. But, for the ancient Chinese, "forever" is a charged word when it comes to mercury We will recall that we have en-countered mercury before, in the guise of cinnabar, or mercury sulphide - perhaps the most potent of all the substances used in the vast, ongoing ancient Chinese industry of trying to discover the elixir of deathlessness. The tomb of this emperor, surrounded as it is by a garrison of some 1,400 terra cotta statues including archers, cavalry troops, charioteers, infantrymen and horses, represents nothing less than a colossal effort to attain to the state of Hsien, or material immortality. This tomb is truly the ultimate Project Apollo of the Chinese emperors. The cost of the mercury alone must have been enormous-the equivalent of filling the tomb with uranium, or plutonium. And what now lies in the tomb? Have we here encountered a clue as to why so little is known about the efforts of the Chinese government to excavate it? A year or so ago, a report leaked out of Beijing that the tomb-chamber of Qin Shi Huangdi was "like a palace." The implication was that a camera had been lowered into its unknown depths. Yet officials have clearly stated that "nothing has yet been done" in terms of its excavation. Authorities have made similar claims regarding the 90 or 100 other tombs, or burial mounds, that rise up not far from Xian and the mausoleum of the emperor. Ruthlessly plundering the wealth of his country and of its citizens, Shi Huangdi was one of the richest men who ever lived. On nothing did he lavish money more freely than on his quest for material immortality If an entire terra cotta army stands outside his tomb, then what analogous splendors lie inside? Treasure, yes;

29

treasure worth billions of dollars. Why then has the Chinese government not entered the tomb and retrieved these treasures, if for no other reason than to make use of the astronomical wealth they represent? Because, I believe, there is more at stake within the tomb of Shi Huangdi than simply riches; there are unheardof secrets of material immortality, which only this emperor had the power and the wealth to seize upon. I believe there are people within the Chinese establishment today who know of these secrets, and who see to it that the tomb of Shi Huangdi is never touched. Yet rumors have filtered out; clandestine legends have built up over the past 2,000 years; these myths of wonders in the tomb of the First Emperor have taken on a veiled form-that of the White Pyramid of Xian. This may be because the White Pyramid itself is more than legend. I believe there is a Secret Society of the White Pyramid of China. I believe it is highly possible that the rulers of the vast and brilliant Middle Kingdom never ceased to believe in the reality and power of the state of Hsien and that their efforts to attain it would ultimately be successful. I believe there may be a secret society today - one incredibly ancient - whose members think, in fact know, that the tomb of the emperor, while filled with treasure beyond imagining, contains only the illusion of a body; who know that the emperor himself, wearing the vestigial body of the Hsien, has long since gone into the realms of material immortality, transmuted into that state by the catalytic agency of his bath of mercury. I wonder what other members of the Secret Society of the White Pyramid reside in the 100 or so other burial pyramids rising up modestly, though not inaccessibly, distant from the tomb of the emperor? Are these tombs also empty? If they were to be opened, and a ragged corpse discovered there, would not that be merely an illusion meant to mock grave robbers while, thanks to the genius of the ancient art of alchemy - and perhaps a greater Genius, and one far more ancient - the former resident of this tomb has for centuries roamed the heavens and the earth? Return of the White Pyramid There may be, living among us today, members of the Secret Society of the White Pyramid - keepers of its secrets, aspirants themselves to the state of Hsien - who know that material immortality is a reality, and who hide this knowledge from the general public. These members who number among the living may also know the true facts behind the obscure memory of primordial contact with Alien Mind which ultimately prompted the ancient Chinese to strive to attain to the state of Hsien. They may know these facts because of extraordinary, exquisite Alien artifacts stored within the tomb-chamber of Shi Huangdi. Or they may know them because the materially immortal dead can materialize among the living members of the Secret Society of the White Pyramid at any time, and provide them with yet more secrets of the state of Hsien. One of these secrets may be that, in that realm that transcends time and space, it is once again possible to commune with Alien Mind, and to learn of all that has happened, and of all that will happen, and of the choices that mankind must now make. The White Pyramid of Xian may be the Materially Immortal Pyramid. It may be the archetypal burial place, so closely attuned to the state of Hsien itself that it exists virtually plunged in that place of material immortality, and so invisible to mortals. It may be the meeting place of the members of the Secret Society of the White Pyramid - both the living and the dead. It may be the ultimate Chinese Roswell - a benevolent Roswell, the necessary suppression of a truth so explosive that mankind as a whole is not yet ready to hear it. What crises of the human soul cause the White Pyramid of Xian to wink into physical existence for a brief moment of time? Was it the coming convulsions of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that enabled an American flyer to glimpse it long enough to photo-graph it in 1945? Was it the crash landing of two UFOs near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 - an alien intervention with no relation to Alien Mind, perhaps, and perhaps one which Alien Mind wished to prevent - that served as a catalyst enabling another American flyer to see and photograph the great White Pyramid a second time?

30

Is the White Pyramid in its ultimate reality another Shambhala, a portal into other worlds which is now rapidly regaining physical reality in ours, so that it may resume its immortal task of carrying out the intervention needed when an entire civilization stumbles toward its end? Are there not those who can tell us? Why will they not speak out?

A comparison of the Gizeh pyramid complex with a pyramid complex in Shaanxi. Since many years already in the popular scientific community and in publications there are many announcements and contentions of gigantic pyramids in China. The puzzle around the look-up seems final after new discoveries. With the help of Google Earth, the objects are to be seen impressively. It can not be maintained longer, there might be no pyramids in China.! They have four sides and they are even square like the pyramids in Egypt and in Mexico. Its size can quite be matched with those of the Pharaohs and of the Mexican rulers. Already in 1912 of the two travel agents Fred Meyer Schroder and Oscar Maman reported of a tremendous building that they had seen in China. "It was more eerie than if we had found them in the wilderness. Here they had been under the nose of the world, but unknown to the western countries... The big pyramid is about 1,000 feet high (other descriptions estimate 1,000 to 1,200 feet high) and roughly 1,500 feet at the base, which makes it twice as large as any pyramid in Egypt. The four faces of the structure are oriented with the compass points," the two travellers reported. During the second world war, the pilot of the American Air Force, James Gaussman, with his co-pilot, flow through a technical defect at his machine -, for several times over a specific territory in China. What he later reported sounds completely unbelievable:

35

"I banked to avoid a mountain and we came out over a level valley. Directly below was a gigantic white pyramid. It looked like something out of a fairy tale. It was encased in shimmering white. This could have been metal, or some sort of stone. It was pure white on all sides. The remarkable thing was the capstone, a huge piece of jewel-like material that could have been crystal. There was no way we could have landed, although we wanted to. We were struck by the immensity of the thing", the pilots reported. On March 28, 1947 the "New York Times" reported about that discovery. In an interview with the newspaper, the former far east director of the Transworld Airlines, Maurice Sheahan, says he has seen 40 miles southwest of Xian a gigantic pyramid. "I was impressed by its perfect pyramidal form and its great size," says Sheahan. Later, on March 30, 1947 the "New York Sunday Times" take over the report and published at the first the photo, which is actually made in 1945 by Gaussman, and that was soon forgotten. In 1978 the New Zealand researcher Bruce L. Cathie bothered itself of a clarification of the puzzle. According to some correspondence with the Chinese embassy and the US air force he kept up the photo of 1947. He published the picture later in the first edition of his book "The Bridge to Infinity" of 1983. According to the photograph and the reports, the New Zealand researcher estimate that the pyramid must have at their basis a length of 450 meters (1500 feet) and a height of about 300 meters (1000 feet). It is a pyramid with four flat trapezoid shaped sides, a square plateau on the top and a square base, like the pyramids in Egypt and in Mexico. Such pyramids were up to now unknown to the experts in the western world and its existence was always denied: "There are no pyramids in China! Only pagodas - temple liked, peaked buildings", so the opinion of the world experts. I came to the "white pyramid" when I already read reports in specialized books before and then I saw the appropriate photograph in the book "The Face on Mars" of 1989 from the two Australian authors Brian Crowley and James J. Hurtak. Brian Crowley then sent a copy of the image in his book to me and then I passed it to Peter Krassa - a Austrian book author and China researcher. Later I published it in my German book "Das Marsgesicht" (The Face on Mars) of 1995. I have left indeed Peter Krassa the photograph, but I wanted to however make and therefore prove attentive, that there are in fact pyramids in China. At the German edition "Ancient Skies", the journal of the "Ancient Astronaut Society", no. 6, 1991, I published a short report. One did not want to however publish the photograph of 1947. Gene Phillips, the founder of the mentioned society, has refused a report from me in the American journal of the Society - with the reason, the photograph could be "something doctored", somehow falsified. He considered the photograph for a forgery. However, I was some extent amazed when I saw a German book in a bookshop in Hamburg, Germany - during a lecture trip - with the title "Die weisse Pyramide" (The white pyramid), written by Hartwig Hausdorf, he was until then completely unknown to me. The book appeared in 1994 and then I found out that Peter Krassa had made the photograph available to him - without my knowledge. However, Hartwig Hausdorf mentioned me in his book so the case is functional. Hartwig Hausdorf was very much strove anyway - and that was also my aim for the thing and he has undertaken several China trips, around the report to go onto the basis. He found several pyramid mountains in China in fact and he has also published photographs from that. These were the first real evidence that there are pyramidal buildings in China exist. The "white pyramid" could constitute Hausdorf nonetheless not. Bruce L. Cathie announces many details in its book "The bridge to Infinity" over pyramids in China and especially over the "white pyramid" - so too precise coordinate information. They should be had found north of the contemporary city Sian (Xian), by the foot of the river Wei-ho - exact at 34.26 degrees of northern width and 108.52 degrees of eastern length. This data were for me very helpful when I searched in September 2006, with "Google Earth" over China after the pyramids. This program was in the last years set up extended from Google into the Internet and one can recognize fantastic details of the Earth's surface, by means of satellite consumption - as e.g. too the mysterious lines in the plain of Nazca. The solution is not in all fields optimally, nevertheless mostly quite well. According to some trouble I then kept up after the coordinate information of Bruce L. Cathie two pyramids. As result, I found further, more than twenty and bigger pyramids. They are square earth-pillars, constructed by Chinese craftsmen a long time ago very obviously. The professional world has therefore improper. There are indeed pyramids in China! Google Earth confirmed that again. The biggest one in this area is on 34.23 degrees North and 108.42 degrees East. The opinions diverge via the age of the pyramids. Some speak of 2500 to 3500

36

years. The legendary "Emperor of the prehistoric time" should at that time have been there. The pyramids are in the province Shaanxi, north of the city Sian (Xian). On the satellite photographs of Google Earth, no "white pyramid" is to be recognized. Under the coordinates 34.26 degrees of North and 108.52 degrees East, two pyramids are visible, but however they are not identical to the photo from 1947. The pyramid lying a little southwest, in my opinion, comes onto 34.22 North most of all and 108.41 East, north of the small city Hsien-yang into consideration. An arrangement shows similar factors as on the photograph from 1947: A square plateau, grazes (excavations) on the sidewalls, similar ones walkways (streets) and in the background, a small settlement. But that pyramid is definitely not the "white pyramid". In some Internet pages (Chris Maier) and in the homepage of wikipedia, the Maoling mausoleum is compared with the "white pyramid". And that is in actual fact correct. Already on former satellite images which were published in the homepage of earthquest.co.uk of November 2001, that is to be recognized. With Google Earth, this pyramid - although at present another with bad resolution - is it to be seen also. They lies west of the pyramids of Hsien-yang, close to the city Xianyang, on 30.20 degrees North and 108.34 degrees East. The "white pyramid" needs not to be a tremendous mystic building. The pilots and the travel agents to see the Maoling mausoleum, with his size - according to the measurements via Google Earth - of about 222 to 217 meters on the ground and his height of about 46 meters, can quite have appeared below glistening sunlight glimmering and quite big. No other pyramid in this area is so big. Only the one on 34.23 North and 108.42 East, which has a size of 219 to 230 meters on the ground.

Emperor Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum The well-known Shi Huang-ti Mausoleum, situated 50 kilometers East, has a size of 357 to 354 meters on the base and the whole complex has a size of 488 to 581 meters. But that grave mountain is actually a square mound and not a pyramid. Attainable is the area near Hsien-yang over the city Xian (Sian) obvious the airport that Hartwig Hausdorf with some traveling companions already used in 1994. They could for instance constitute seventeen pyramids within a radius of about three kilometers and they estimated its heights at sixty to seventy

meters. Some coordinates

October 24, 2002 from WorldNetDaily Website Editor's note: WorldNetDaily.com has entered into an historic content-sharing agreement with Pravda online, the largest Russian cyber-news source on the Internet. Pravda.ru provides English versions of its stories to WND on an exclusive basis, while posting WorldNetDaily stories and columns on its news-site in both English and Russian. According to legend, one hundred pyramids in China are proof aliens have visited our planet, reports Pravda online. The mystery behind the claim begins with the journey of two Australian merchants to the vast plains of Sichuan in central China during the early part of the last century. While there, the men stumbled upon pyramids that were first described in writings more than five-thousand years ago. A monk related the history of the pyramids to the men, revealing they were built when China was ruled by ancient emperors who believed in the existence of extra-terrestrial civilizations. In fact, the emperors not only believed in aliens, they insisted they themselves were descendants of "the sons of the sky." They gave their alien ancestors credit for the construction of the architectural wonders and claimed the aliens came to earth on "iron dragons." Fast forward almost a century later to the year 1994, austrian Hartwig Hausdorf made a trip to central China

38

near the city of Xi'an, the capital of the Shaanxi province. While there, Hausdorf stumbled upon six of the legendary structures. Amazed by what he had seen, he returned later that year with a video camera. His footage recorded more than one hundred pyramids in an area of approximately twelve-hundred square miles. According to the Pravda report, the structures range in height from eighty to three hundred feet, with one exception. The so-called "Great White Pyramid" just north of the others is said to be almost one-thousand feet tall. The pyramids are composed of clay and sand and are in poor condition because farmers have removed the soil over the years for their fields. Excavations are now banned, and the area surrounding the so-called "Great White Pyramid" was recently declared completely off-limits by the Chinese government. Ironically, that very same area is now used as a launch site for rockets modern-day civilization's very own "iron dragons."

The oldest-known altar used in Chinese state religious practice was unearthed, then reburied, this past summer in the city of Xian by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Uncontrolled development around a mysterious circular mound prompted a 30-day salvage excavation. Constructed as early as the Sui Dynasty (A.D. 581-618), the so-called Altar of Heaven is more than 1,000 years older than a similar altar in Beijing, and is the only one found so far pre-dating the Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1644-1912). It is estimated that 17 Chinese emperors conducted religious rites here. Chinese state religion, whose origins stretch back to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220) and perhaps as early as the Western Zhou Dynasty (1050-771 B.C.), involved the worship of heaven only by emperors, who were perceived as links between the earthly and celestial realms. Emperors mounted the steps of the Altar of Heaven barefoot, accompanied by an orchestra playing religious hymns, to prostrate themselves before celestial deities. Their effectiveness as emperors depended on the proper performance of ritual; otherwise they might be blamed for a bad harvest or other misfortunes. Constructed of rammed earth and composed of four circular platforms that originally rose 26 feet high, the altar

was uncovered a half mile southeast of Xians southern gate, confirming references to it in ancient historical sources such as The Old History of the Tang Dynasty and The History of the Sui Dynasty. The sides and the surfaces of the altars platforms were covered with a layer of yellow clay, and topped off with a quarter-inch thick layer of gray-white paste, made from seed husks and straw, that gave the altar a white appearance. The platforms were each between five and seven and one-half feet high and measured from 177 feet in diameter at the bottom to 65 feet at the top. Twelve equally spaced staircases, representing Chinese astronomers division of the heavens into 12 parts, ascended from the ground to the highest platform. The 12 staircases are the most obvious peculiarity of the Xian Altar of Heaven. During the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1912) dynasties, altars had only four staircases, and historical sources report that Han altars had only eight. Interpretation and understanding of these altars have varied from scholar to scholar and from dynasty to dynasty, says An Jiayao, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences archaeologist who published the site report. According to historical records, the Han Dynasty emperor Wu Di conducted religious rites on an altar that was purple and beautifully ornamented. An says that the Xian altar shows that, by contrast, people during the Tang used natural materials and sought simplicity to show the heavens their respect and sincerity. The altars construction may indeed have reflected a resurgence in state religious practice after years of neglect following the demise of the Han Dynasty in the third century A.D., says Timothy H. Barrett of the University of Londons School of Oriental and African Studies. The religious rites that evolved in the Tang Dynasty were a "rethinking of Han practices," he notes. The altar fell out of use as the Tang Dynasty faded in the tenth century. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences team was forced to rebury the altar only weeks after its discovery owing to a lack of funds for a public display. "We hope the altar will one day be open to the public," An told The Times of London. "It is a shame but money is a real problem."
