This one was sent to me by Mr. D.W. in the United Kingdom, and for people in the alternative research community, the implications for high octane speculation are obvious. The article, interestingly enough, was reported on RT:

5D Nanostructured Glass Optical Memory

The data-storage possibilities here lie not only in the amount that can be stored, but also in the durability of accurate storage against inevitable decay and loss over time. In this case, the amount of data and the permanence of storage are vastly increased:

"The newly-developed storage promises unprecedented data capacity of 360 Terabyte for a DVD-sized disc. The maximum capacity of a latest generation quad-layer Blu-Ray DVD is “only” 128 Gigabytes. The largest heat-assisted magnetic recording hard drive (HAMR), yet to be commercially produced, will have about 20 terabytes per disc.

"Glass storage could preserve data for millions of years whereas a DVD guarantees only about seven years of faultless playback.

"The nanostructured glass remains stable if exposed to temperatures up to 1,000°C"

And, note the conclusions, drawn by Prof. Peter Kazansky:

The ORC’s physical optoelectronics group supervisor Prof. Peter G. Kazansky, follower of the Nobel Prize laureate for the invention of laser, Aleksandr Prokhorov, shared that “It is thrilling to think that we have created the first document which will likely survive the human race. This technology can secure the last evidence of civilization: all we’ve learnt will not be forgotten.”(Emphasis in the original)

It's that "survivability for millions-of-years" that interests us here, for as readers not only of my own books, but those of many others in this field will be aware, there are numerous legends from ancient times that record very similar data-storage possibilities for crystals. One need think only of various Mayan, Hopi, or even Cherokee legends about the crystal skulls as containing "knowledge," and there are from Egypt and other quarters the stories of Thoth, who inscribed all knowledge on two "pillars of stone," in advance of the Deluge, to preserve human knowledge and civilization against the calamity. It takes but little imagination to see the "pillars of stone" as being crystals, and even to associate them with the two great pyramids of Giza - true pillars of stone - that, with the very materials of their construction, limestone and granite, are built from materials embedding crystals, and that, moreover, in their totality, resemble large crystals, complete with lattice displacements and in the Great Pyramid's case, a very odd and very rich assembly of all sorts of encoded mathematical and physics data.

Then, of course, readers of my book The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts will recall that the so-called "Tablets of Destinies" that figured so prominently in Mesopotamian versions of that "cosmic war" were, on my analysis of the texts, most likely crystalline objects encoding a wealth of information.

All of which lends itself to some high octane speculation: could it just be possible that these techniques for data storage are being explored, not simply to expand the technologies of data storage and permanence - a worthy objective in and of itself - but also as possible ways to explore these ancient legends, and perhaps to unlock whatever "knowledge" might be embedded in objects such as the crystal skulls? Might it also be that during the West's recent plunder of Iraq, the looting of the Baghdad Museum, the disappearance of antiquities in Egypt as the Mubarek regime fell, that objects were quietly removed from view, to see if, indeed, they contained such ancient secrets? or might something have been found on the Moon or elsewhere requiring such analysis?

To be sure, this is not only high octane speculation, but wildly so. But the article itself, to the careful reader, is suggesting it. The very idea, as Prof Kazansky states, of preserving knowledge beyond the existence of the human race suggests precisely the same scenario recorded in so many ancient legends, as we have outlined them above. And it also suggests that whoever is going to access that stored data has to have some idea of the basic principles of encoding such data in such a medium to begin with, and then to have the precise knowledge and technology of unlocking it, and reading it.  So if those ancient legends are true, then they must be based on the same or similar principles... and that means that someone could be reading some very unusual texts right now... texts that we left behind on our previous arrival at The Tower of Babel Moment of History.

See you on the flip side.

    Re: Crystal Skulls being “fake” – that always makes me chuckle. As a collector of finely made crystal skulls from modern Chinese craftsmen, I don’t know what exactly is meant by “fake.” True, the so called “13 sacred crystal skulls” are all of modern manufacture, but the fact remains that the crystal skull goes into sympathetic resonance with the human bone skull, and that is where it gets interesting. Modern crystal skulls are energetic tools of great power because of this shape resonance. All sorts of interesting things happen when a crystal skull interacts with the human bone structure.
    Take a gander:

  3. emlong on July 17, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    This all begs the question of what is meant by “data.” Adepts at psychometrizing artifacts might as well be reading data that has somehow been “stored” in the object. The detail that can sometimes be retrieved looks like something of terabyte complexity at the very least. or rather it might surpass the digital entirely. All physical objects store data, and they don’t require high tech preparation to do do.

  5. bdw000 on July 16, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    I complained a few months ago about how it seems very close to impossible that anyone (that includes “aliens’) could ever “figure out” some unknown technology (past, present, or future). For instance, if you are handed a circuit board and asked to figure out what it does, given enough time, scientists and engineers could figure it out, IF, IF, IF they already know what all the components on the circuit board do. But if you have no idea at all what all of the components on the board do (or what they are SUPPOSED to do), where could you even begin? Does the circuit board even run on what WE CALL “electricity” ? (maybe there are other options we know nothing about?).

    Well, a friend of mine suggested that the fairly famous government “remote viewers” (or some other gov’t psychics) might be the key to figuring out how some unknown technology works. Forget “back-engineering” technology: get all sorts of tips and hints from someone who can literally “see” what it was used for, and how it works.

    Even though reliability is far from 100% for psychic information, if you put ten “psychics” (or a hundred, or a thousand) on one piece of technology, they might actually get some pretty good results. . .

    • bdw000 on July 16, 2013 at 8:43 pm

      A sort of counter argument against the above post:

      Years ago I heard Joe McMoneagle (“remote viewer 001” iirc) give a lecture. Someone asked him how far into the future he could see (and apparently it is very well documented that he CAN see the PAST very well at times. Not sure how successful he is with the future (he claims his overall accuracy is around 25%)). His reply was something like “not much beyond 100-150 years. Beyond that, when it comes to technology, I just have no idea what I am looking at” (besides things like mountains and trees and roads and houses). Someone else wrote years ago (forgot who) that if you could take an American Indian from 1500 to the year 1990, set him down at a large international airport and let him spend the day there (but do NOT give him lectures in his own language about everything he sees), and then send him back, what could he tell his friends in 1500 about what he had seen? Would he really be able to ACCURATELY describe what he had seen? For a culture that does not even know what a ‘machine” is, would the Indian even be able to see that the airplanes were machines, and not some sort of large animal? Bringing up the same old problem: if technology is too different, you just don’t have a clue as to where to begin. You literally “don’t know what you are looking at.”

      McMoneagle used to claim (perhaps he still does) that he was helping some folks with their inventions, or even on what inventions to choose to work on.

    • bdw000 on July 16, 2013 at 8:54 pm

      Regarding the “electricity” comment above:

      Today, perhaps most of the circuit boards in our society run on 5 to 25 volts. There are probably many PCB’s that run on up to several hundred volts. Some into the thousands of volts even. Many small devices probably run on less than 5 volts.

      But what if it the ancient circuit board (or whatever device) worked on a MILLIONTH of a volt? Or a TRILLIONTH of a volt? The first time you hooked up 5 volts to the device, you would destroy it. Or perhaps, moving in the other direction, on MILLIONS OR TRILLIONS of volts? We would never even think to try and plug that much power into a mere “circuit board,” and the board would always seen to never do anything. Or what if the circuit board worked on EXACTLY .0000000000000018756 volts, plus or minus 1% of that value? We’d never get the thing to work! This is a very obvious sort of parameter that could well stump the very best scientific minds of the planet, even though they are fully aware of this basic problem. There could well be other parameters that would be exponentially more difficult to figure out, even if we could even be aware of them at all.

      Still, using all that black-budget money, thousands of psychics working for years might be able crack some ancient technology.

      Fusang was first recorded in the Shan Hai Jing(Classic of the Mountains and Seas)
      in the chapter: “Classic of Regions Beyond the Seas: East”
      Fusang along with a nation called Heichi(black teeth) are mentioned. According to Book of the Later Han, chapter:Treatise on the Dongyi(nations to the east of China), “four thousand(li) east of Japan is the nation of Luo(naked), the nation of Heichi is located to the South-East of Luo. It’ll take a year for ships to sail there.” And according to the Shan Hai Jing, Fusang is located to the north of Heichi. Hence placing both Heichi and Fusang somewhere in the Americas.

      In ancient mythology, Xihe, the ancestral mother goddess of the Dongyi people is said to be the mother of ten suns, her domain is located in Fusang. The ten suns are also typically depicted on the Fusang tree.
      Now if one look at the scene depicted on Plate 37 of the Codex Vindobonensis from the Mixtec people in Mexico, “The central scene is supposedly the origin of Mixtecs from a tree that begat the ancestors of this people”, one can see a goddess is giving birth to a human being, her body is shaped like a tree with ten suns hanging on it, besides the goddess there are depictions of ten tribes/peoples with different appearances and customs. The Mixtec creator goddess hence is likely the Chinese equivalent of the goddess Xihe.
      Ancient mythology also says the sun rises in Tanggu(where the Fusang tree is located) and sets in Ruoshui(somewhere in Western China).
      I think that’s why the mainstream academia tends to dismiss the idea that Fusang is located in modern day Mexico.
      In the movie “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”, Emily Appleton found some characters in the city of gold, she says “This is gonna unlock the Olmec language. It’s gonna give us incredible insight into Pre-Columbian history!” Interestingly, the first three characters are Olmec, but the rest of the six characters are Chinese.

      So,i incline to think the elder brother of the Hopi(given they are culturally associated to the Mayans) is actually referring to China. According to Hopi prophecy, only the elder brother can read the Tiponi tablets given by the Great Spirit.
      Given that “the two helpers are designated by the Hopi word for “population,” as if they were large groups of people”.and if
      -the elder brother is “China”,
      -he has association with the Great Spirit (which would enable the elder brother to read the tablets)
      -also considering In “The Law of One”, where Akashic Record was mentioned,
      “We have explained before that the intelligent infinity is brought into intelligent energy from eighth density or octave. The one sound vibratory complex called Edgar used this gateway to view the present, which is not the continuum you experience but the potential social memory complex of this planetary sphere. The term your peoples have used for this is the “Akashic Record” or the “Hall of Records”

      I’m starting to wonder if the Tiponi tablets can only be read by “China” with the possible help from the Great Spirit is an indication of a location-specific property, then i can imagine where they may take the tablets in order to read it, somewhere in Western China since that’s where the realm of the immortals is supposedly located. Perhaps the tablets can only be read with the help from higher dimensional existence. Perhaps intelligent energy/spiritual science is what’s necessary to unlock the tablets. Maybe the purpose of Tiponi tablets is to help the elder brother to fulfill the mission given by the Great Spirit. Now this reminds me of Fulford’s report of “Asian secret societies keeping their sacred promise to the Creator to get rid of poverty and reverse evironmental damages” code named LIFE. The supposed “great new life plan” brought by the elder brother and his helpers? My interpretation would be: expecting “disclosure” and “free energy” in the coming years, and expect the Chinese to push for it.

      P.S. here are some skull shaped objects from a private collector in China
      according to the collector, he’s got 7 more skull shaped objects like these.

  7. Robert Barricklow on July 16, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    I wonder if someone had found those ancient crystals and deciferred them, if the information, or whatever it was/is – would be beneficial? In other words, is it designed to be user friendly? Or, perhaps, a warning? Or, perhaps an insidious seed of knowledge; that once swallowed, leads to places no one in their right mind would want to take society, or an elite group?

    Reminds me of the stained glass windows in the mysterious cathedrals in France. Apparently modern glass makers cannot replicate these magnificent windows, and don’t know how they were made.

    As far a storage is concerned, well it’s the old story of what they are telling us, and what they are not telling us.

    Although the Tablets of Destiny do link to a crystals, the ancients were well aware of technologies that we will most likely going to crack in the future.

  9. LSM on July 16, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    Hi Dr. Farrell and readers,

    believe it or not all of this ties in with British para-military trained (understatement) John Urwin’s testemonies in his shivering book “One Step Beyond…The Sixteen” where the ultimate goal was to recover two of the glass crystals in the Middle East (they did) that would prevent a malevolent movement from combining them with like glass crystals that only in combination with each other could either turn the planet into a utopia or destroy it-

    Urwin’s testemonies stem from the mid 1950s- his book is available at Amazon- his website is (type his name).com

    read the book then make up your own mind- it is the most haunting personal testemony I’ve ever read-


    P:S. could such crystals have occupied the unexplained holes in the Grand Gallery of the Great Pyramid?- I don’t know but it wouldn’t surprise me (high octane speculation)

  10. marcos toledo on July 16, 2013 at 10:59 am

    First Egypt then Iraq in the nineteenth thru twenty first centuries now Syria and Iran now. And least we forget the Americas, India and China maybe Japan raided for their ancient knowledge. By the way any thoughts on were the codex’s of the Aztec’s, Maya’s really destroyed or are most of their books squirreled away in the Vatican’s secret library. Just thinking.

  11. Frankie Calcutta on July 16, 2013 at 7:29 am

    I think you always have to entertain the outside chance that some country who is not one of the usual suspects has been deciphering some of its own native artifacts and may have or be on the verge of trumping our own sinister elite in the technology race. India, China, Pakistan and Iran would come first to mind with their long history of civilization and the remains there of. But what about some country completely off the radar? What if a couple of Guatamalan scientists have decoded some artifact and suddenly this seemingly backward country has military supremacy? Maybe Syria and/or Iran are on the verge of deciphering some war decisive technology or in the least our elite fear the possibility exists and therefore the need to crush them now and ransack their countries before it can happen? You can be certain the Germans are pouring over all the artifacts and ancient texts they have accumulated over the centuries to find that advantage which may free themselves from their bondage to the anglosphere.

    My fantasy would be if some Palestinian kids, fleeing underground from some Israeli ghouls on an organ harvesting raid, accidentally stumble upon the Arc of the Covenant. Being at one time some of the most educated people on the planet until the European invaders stole their land and put them in camps, the Palestinians figure out how to operate the Arc and then use it to drive their despicable foes into the sea.

    The other thought I had: what if Russia and the angloshpere become proxies for two battling groups of aliens and the aliens start arming their proxies with advanced weapons so they can kill each other better?

    • Sagnacity on July 16, 2013 at 7:40 am

      Why must the “deciphered tech be war decisive”?

      What about the ability to alleviate need, hunger, the extremes of disease? (If you believe the tale of Akakor; that all has already been done by an isolated tribe in the Andes.)

      Anyhow it’s not a new point about weapons tech. There are certainly those who claim that the Ethiopians used such gear to drive the Italians out in the 1930s. (Yes I realize that with massive aide from the Nazis, the Italians fought and won on anther day.)

      • LSM on July 16, 2013 at 8:00 am

        “There are certainly those who claim that the Ethiopians used such gear to drive the Italians out in the 1930s”

        if my read sources are correct (IF) the Ethiopians used the Ark of the Covenant (IF this object really exists in the form we’ve been told it does) to defeat the Italians-

        Graham Hancock asserts the Ark of Covenant is housed in Ethiopia- if I recall he even wrote a book about it (or was a major part of one of his books)

        Obviously, any ancient info could be anything at all.

        • Sagnacity on July 19, 2013 at 8:52 pm


          You missed the point, the original comment wasn’t about the history of wars possibly recorded on a crystal; it was about “war decisive” tech on a data crystal. Big difference. One is the plans for building such stuff, the other is a history book. And they don’t necessarily overlap.
