Is the Earth Really Hollow? The Theoretical Hole

By: Dr. Tom Macon, PhD

The Bigger Question

Suppose the huge planet that we all live on and about whose geography and lithography we all are taught about since early days turns out to be hollow, and all the magma, lava like liquids turn out to be illusions inside another semblance of crust, core and mantle, would we human beings as scientists or researchers and discoverers be devastated? Or would we be immensely troubled?

Emergence of the New Concept

Well the ‘Hollow Earth’ concept would help in clearing out a certain number of anomalies regarding various theories that have been developed in our systems since time immemorial. In connection with the newly discovered fact that our old Earth has been expanding since the Jurassic age the newly evolving ‘expanding earth’ discovery supports the continental drift theory to a large extent.

Hollow Earth Theory

With the possible success of such a theory, one can establish that the continents flawlessly interconnected with each other and occupied just 1/3rd of today’s Earth mass. And if that had happened then the dinosaurs would have found it easy to stroll across from one continent to the other upon dry land because Africa, Europe and America would have been placed in close proximity to each other.

The Dusky Picture

There exist plenty of theories about the Earth’s composition which are ever changing. New theories seem to emerge every year. However the most popular theory that stands today is one in which the Earth consists of a solid inner core and a molten outer layer. This theory suggests that the Earth’s center is covered in sphere-shaped crusts, inner core, outer core followed by solid mantle and finally the crust as we reach in the direction of the surface.

Theory of the Theories

The theories about the Earth’s core are largely related to seismic activity and tectonic movement but no actual exploration has ever been possible about the Earth’s interior. No model or map of the Earth’s interior has come up based on seismic activity alone. All that has been possible is the development of theories.

Is the Earth Really Hollow?

The question on fire still remains unanswered. Is the Earth really hollow? The hollow Earth theory suggests that the Earth either is entirely hollow or contains a significant amount of interior space. The scientific theory has dismissed this proposition since at least the last 18th century. The concept of a hollow Earth occurs many times in folklore or in an adventurous fiction along with some conspiracy theories.

Mere Developments of Crazy Minds

It appears that hollow Earth just pretended to be another crazy idea evolving out of the minds of some insanely crazy people. However the range of implications of the Earth being hollow is important. The claims of Admiral Byrd can hardly be understood by geographers of old times but he seems to stay adamant on the fact that the Earth was a hollow with an opening at the North Pole.

Admiral Byrd and his Confused Theory

Byrd was not a poet, and what he described was what he observed from his airplane. He would not have been insane to say that the land beyond the North Pole is the ‘centre of the unknown’ flying over icy and snowbound lands that lie on the other side, whose geography is fairly well known. The theories presented in his book are supported by the observations of Arctic explorers.

World of the Great Unknown

Byrd could not have had any part of the Earth’s known surface in mind when he spoke of the “Great Unknown” but of a place free from cold and ice, a land that exists in warm imaginations with bright blue and clear skies, birds chirping, animals grazing on the land and the landscape covered in green. Well, to say that Admiral Byrd was a lunatic to make any such statement would be inappropriate but it is only on the basis of this imagination that we can understand his statements.

The Perplex Still Lingers ON

To the people who believe in the concept of the solid Earth, it would be bewildering to understand the word ‘beyond’ as used by Admiral Byrd. By this he means that the region on the other side of the Antarctic continent and the ocean beyond has something new to offer. If it were so it would have been in his name. Since nothing like that happened, the theory appears nothing but a fallacy of approach.



Time Travel:
Through The Two Worlds

Time_Travel (2)

Is time travel possible have we already mastered it?

By: Dr. Tom Macon, PhD

The Stephen Hawking Theory

Stephen Hawking once commented ‘I am obsessed by time’ and so is the world that passes by us each moment. He said if he had a time machine he’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in just when Galileo turned his telescope to the heavens. Thoughts and aspirations like those dwell in the minds of not only great achievers but also normal people of day to day like us.

The Time Travel Fantasy

Travelling in time appeared to be a scientific heresy once but now with the possibility of time travel becoming a reality, there appears to be a brighter side of things. The fantasy of a time travel can be possible only when we look at things from the eyes of a physicist. The eyes that look at the fourth dimension while living in the other three.

Story of the Fourth Dimension

It is this fourth one, the dimension of time responsible for time travelling often depicted in movies where huge energy hungry machines force their way through deep dark tunnels and off they go into the past or find their way to the future. The concept may be far- fetched and might elude reality but the idea is not so crazy!

Defining Time Travel

So basically time travel is extending into the undiscovered fourth dimension and moving between different points in space by going way ahead of our comfort zone in order to achieve the fascination that is otherwise bound by the walls of our imagination. Though The Time Machine of HG Wells may have popularized the concept of time travel and depicted time in a very narrow concept, the reality test shows how flawed the idea is.

The Truth

It talks about the element of elasticity that time possesses and how we can easily transcend through various spaces. It is known that time is not an impenetrable barrier. The only requirement is that our species is yet to discover the science which breaks through all such barriers. Keeping this in view, time travel appears to be an achievable idea which is worth exploring.

The Countless Efforts

There is much evidence to the fact that many approaches have been made in time travel be it by Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking. However, only a few theories could be expounded. The attempts of the United States, documents retrieved after Nicola Tesla’s death which revealed the schematic for a teleportation machine, also suggest that steps have been taken into this direction. Claims of Iranian men of having being built the time machine are also existent however the extraction of truth has not yet been attained.

The Theory of Everything

‘The Theory of Everything’ also known as the M-theory provides evidence of sending messages through time. The Philadelphia experiment is the greatest theory ever told in the time travel extravaganza.  The Montauk Project of sending soldier’s flying through time has also conducted researches on whether travelling through time is possible. The results arrived at have always not been possible.

There Exists a Negative Side Too

If there has been positivity attached to each approach then there are certain apprehensions too. What if by travelling in the past we altered some phenomenal occurrences? That would lead our present into a wormhole!

Possibility of a Myth

There is a lot of suggestion in the world that Time Travel is being actively developed. Our minds are asleep yet we know it exists. People asserting that they have travelled through time and have achieved time travel still appears to be a myth. Time Travel is not a non achievable venture but it is not even something that can be attained in the blink of an eye.

There is a Long Way to Go

There are long paths to traverse before we can actually cross ways in the past and the future. Till then in the words of Stephen Hawking there only exists a parallel world relating to time travel. Otherwise we all travel in time. During the past year I have moved forward one year and so have you!


Off To Heaven And The Stars Amid The Almighty And The Inferior


Was the Tower of Babel a Stargate?

By: Dr. Tom Macon, PhD

The Wider Picture

We live in a world that accepts variations and varieties. We acknowledge people in different skins with different dialects and languages and we subsist on different parts of one planet. Thus, we welcome diversity at its best. There exists however, one story that explains the origin of even different languages and it explains how people traversed to different places and were sparsely distributed on land.

The Origination

The Tower of Babel is a story told in the Book of Genesis of the Tanakh also known as the Hebrew Bible meant to explain the origin of different languages. It said that the whole world had one language, one common speech for all people. The people of the earth became skilled in construction and decided to build a city with a tower that would reach to heaven. By building the tower they wanted to make a name for themselves and also prevent their city from being scattered.

The Story of the Tower of Babel

It reads that God came down to see their city and perceived their intentions. He understood that with that staircase to heaven nothing would be out of the reach of the people and that would only take them away from him. As a result God baffled their speech so that they speak different languages and do not understand each other. With this he let down their plans and also sprinkled the people of the city all over the face of the Earth.

The Aspect of the Stargate

It is said that the end of the world will be because of certain creatures entering the world through a stargate, a gate that would allow aliens to enter our planet. Well so goes the tale that the end of time will be marked by destruction of Babylon (Iraq) and the return of terrible giants when God commands a “ruler” to “open the gates,” releasing giants to fulfil his wrath. He can be fierce enough to send evil angels!

Was it a God vs. Man?

The comment that God created the confusion so as to prevent people from constructing the tower which would lead them to paradise seems curious if the meaning is only to reach the sky. Various towers have been built all around the world since the dawn of time. It is also said that the Tower of Babel was being built waterproof to avenge God from sending floods and also preparing for his future actions!

The Tale Continues

These conceptions appear to satisfy some who conceptualize God and his angels in close proximity but they also throw light over what Isaiah prophesied regarding opening of Earlthy babel gates at the time of the end of the Earth while the war in Iraq was on. However from the point of view of development that has been attained today, it appears to be folklore more than any envisaged message.

Greatness Restored

There is reason and sense when we say that no such tower is going to reach heaven because we have space ships and rockets, planes and missiles which do not enter heaven once launched but land or crash in some part of the Earth itself. And do we assume that God knew this? Because well he is God!

Revealing the Truth

The story of Babylon and the Tower and the story of Gatekeepers and demons entering through star gates all help to construe that these mythological tales are just worth being stories because God being the superpower as we know now was alarmed enough to scatter the builders all over the Earth and change their languages so that they might not complete the tower. Well it appears that God apprehended humans might succeed!

The Reality might Sound Different

It is widely accepted that some scholars believe in the stories that go with these tales. They accept that there has to be some connection. We all know that during the rule of ancient rulers especially in the regions of Mesopotamia structures like mounds or pyramids were built. A ziggurat namely Etemenaki or “Platform of Heaven and Earth” is often associated with this tale since it meets the biblical description.

Stargates Might Exist

Thus, if we can rule out these tales as mythical, there can exist a possibility of ziggurats being actual stargates as goes the belief of some people but was it the Tower of Babylon? The picture appears very foggy. As far as the question of distributing people over the landscape is considered, God might have wanted to see the world the way it is today, more diverse yet united.
