Alternative Archaeology


K.M. sent me this article from "our friends at" and when I saw its contents I was.... well, both stunned and surprised, and yet simultaneously, not stunned and surprised. But in either case, my reaction was that I simply had to blog about it, and emailed K.M. with profuse thanks for bringing it to my attention. You'll see why in a moment.

But first, a little background.

Nine years ago(it scarcely seems possible to me now), I wrote the final book in my Giza Death Star trilogy, outlining my very radical and extremely speculative argument for what I call the "weapon hypothesis" of the Great Pyramid. That book was The giza Death Star Destroyed. On pages 124-127 I wrote about a strange device called a "Hieronymous machine," which, to sum it up, was a machine, or rather, a drawing, a schematicof the circuitry of a machine, that appeared to work exactly as the machine itself. That's right: lines and symbols on a piece of paper that performed exactly like the actual machine it detailed.

Such nonsense is fun, the stuff of Dr. Walter Bishop and a Fringe television episode perhaps.

As I noted in that book,

"The machine itself was a simple device, given a patent by the U.S. Patent Office in September of 1949. The machine was "build around a broad band voltage amplifier" and was designed simply to detect and analyze metal alloys cheaply and accurately."(p. 125)

As I also noted, about twenty per cent of the people who bought the machine simply could not get it to work properly, and there was no apparent reason for their failures.

Yet, another individual, John W. Campbell, a science magazine editor, bought the machine and found it worked perfectly. But he was intrigued by the failure rate and decided to investigate.

What he discovered is what belongs in the area of "fringe science," for during one test of the machine being run by a student, the machine was running perfectly....

...except that Campbell noticed that the student had simply forgotten to plug the machine in!(p. 125). As I noted in the book, Campbell was intrigued by this very strange anomaly, and decided to investigate further. Eliminating static electricity buildup as an explanation, he then decided to see if the machine would continue to run without an electrical supply, which, oddly enough, it did.(p. 126) The conclusion that Campbell drew from this was that the machine was not an electrical machine at all, but some other kind of machine. The question was, what kind?(p. 126)

Campbell evolved a theory that the relationship between the parts of the machine somehow functioned as the machine, in other words, it was the relationship of the parts that were the origins of its functionality, rather than the parts themselves. Campbell decided to test this hypothesis by replacing the soldered circuits of the machine with a wiring diagram or schematic. Once again, the machine worked. Intrigued by the results, another researcher named Harry Stine reperformed the experiment, using the coils, dials, and prisms of the original machine, but replacing the connections by inking the circuits on a card. Again, the experiment worked.

As I put it in The Giza Death Star Destroyed:

"While this might suggest that the ink itself was somehow conducting electricity, it is nevertheless difficult to see how a two-dimensional circuit diagram would not simply "short out" where the circuit lines would cross on the diagram."(p. 126)

Well, what has all this to do with "our friends at"? Simply this:

Pencil drawing of a sensor actually is a sensor

In case you missed it:

"The sensors were drawn on paper that was placed on an electric scale in order to measure and maintain a consistent drawing force for each pencil-drawn sensor. The drawings were then glued on printed circuit board (PCB) strips, and a strain gauge mounted on each PCB strip. Then Kang applied cycles of stress to the sensor using a four-point bending technique, and measured the sensor's voltage change under the applied stress through an electric circuit.

"He found that different pencil grades produce different GF values, and therefore different PZR sensitivities. Specifically, the higher the ratio of clay to graphite, the greater the change in resistance under the applied stress, and the greater the GF.

"Kang explains that these differences can be attributed to variations in the initial tunneling distances between neighboring graphite, with an increase in tunneling distance corresponding to an increase in GF.

"'The graphite tunneling effect is from one graphite through the insulator of clay to another graphite,' Kang said. 'The tunneling structure looks like a metal-insulator-metal.'"

While this is still a long way from the Hireonymous machine anomalies and hypotheses of Campbell, it is nonetheless a step closer to it than we were before, and it appears in some small degree to corroborate my idea that, for whatever reason, the ink on Campbell's circuit schematics did not "short out" and appeared to function as electrical conductors even when the inked lines were crossed. Significant, too, perhaps, that we are also looking at yet another amazing property of piezoelectrics that can detect the minute stresses on a piece of paper... that too, makes me wonder once again at just how much the pyramid builders really knew, when they knew it, and whence their knowledge came.

See you on the flip side.


  1. Reminds me of the Eric Dollard statement that electricity doesn’t run ‘through’ wires but between the wire and insulators.

    Maybe the pencil, clay (insulator) and graphite (conductor) proves his statement.

  2. Reading your post reminded me of the introduction to Dan Davidson’s book, “Shape Power,” which was written by Jerry Decker, in which there was this interesting quote:

    “There is a story that a group of experimenters etched the sigil of the elemental spirit of wind onto a printed circuit board. The board was subject to a high density fluctuating magnetic field (using various frequencies until an effect was noted). After a few minutes of excitation, the wind outside the building took on tornadic velocities and the building collapsed as the wind entity attempted to interphase with the resonator.”

    For the curious, the rest of the introduction is here:

    Definitely makes one think, though …

  3. “It [is] the relationship[s] of the parts that [are] the origins of [any systemic] (dis)functionality, rather than the parts themselves.”

    The Gist of Geometry and the Nth Law of Harmonics, perhaps, but nonetheless a potentially disquieting notion when one contemplates its implications for, shall we say, machines of great scale.

  4. Orgonite doesn’t work unless a piezoelectric crystal is embedded in it. Why this is no one seems to know for certain – there are several theories – but none of them make sense entirely at least from the standpoint of accepted science. A crystal carries surface current only transiently – when it is abruptly shocked or struck – and just sitting there inside a piece of orgonite there is no current running through it. Also, the shrinking resin places the crystal in compression, and many orgoniteers will tell you that the higher the compression the stronger the energy felt from the orgonite, but this again does not correlate to any known scientific principles. Things like orgonite are an example of these arcane phenomena that work but for reasons entirely obscure, but it is looking probable that piezoelectrics are a big clue.

  5. sigh, that this induction works on 80 percent of the population….truly mortifying….talk about dialing M for murder.
    Thanks for that bit of insight, I have been struggling with that.

  6. Yes, I too, wonder just what the Egyptians knew. Why is it that the blocks in their temples taper 90 degrees around corners, and they etched lines connecting blocks with one another? Were these machines that they inhabited on certain (cosmic)occasions, and if so, to what purpose? What actually happened there?

    1. Like an electric socket.
      It is a bridge to a system that requires another “instrument” that fits the agreed upon design to interface/function within/without concurrently, with the dimension(s) in “real” time.

  7. I remember reading that part in GDD where the machine wasn’t plugged in but still worked. I thought at the time that “something else is going on here”, and my thoughts today are the same. Today’s scientists haven’t a clue what’s going on, on this planet, and the evidence is slowly seeping through the cracks in quackademia.

    Looking at Joseph’ words you get a sense that something about protons and electrons are doing strange things, and it’s those strange things that has the quackademics in a tail spin, unless you work for Lockheed that is. There is no doubt in my mind that there are some guys at Lockheed that know an awful lot about protons and electrons doing their “own thing”, I just wonder if it will see the light of day, but I’m not holding my breath.

    1. Perhaps Leedskalnin knew a thing or two.
      According to him – his Magnetic Current – electrons don’t exist.
      He must have known something or he would not have been able to build his castle.
      Maybe it’s them Freemasons with the answer although not knowing it themselves any longer…

  8. The technology of the pyramids like all technology is dual purpose. By that I mean they could be used to help or harm good or evil. Like the crystals in the 1960s movie “Atlantis The Lost Continent” a power source or weapon. Is the John W. Campbell you mention who examined the 1949 device the same who was the author of the story “Who Goes There” the bases for both versions of the movies “The Thing From Another World” by the way I was born in 1949 the month before this device was patented.

  9. What about GUTCP?!!! Carbon based animals use only 6 elements on the periodic chart. The 1st law of thermodynamics is conservation of mass and energy, and the universe is electrically neutral, so deviation from zero is significant, in the sense that it is impossible to see it differently, in the sense of neutrality. The real story is that “context is everything,” stated by the late Gregory Bateson in his book Steps to an Ecology of Mind. There is much more to the physics question, and it sure would be ‘nice’ if it were simplified. Oh, I am forgetting! It is.

  10. I somehow was just tickled with your wordsmithing and use of “whence” re the Pyramid Builders and from “whence their knowledge came.” Just HAD to look it up.

    The word denotes both location and source. In this case, especially, enquiring minds would INDEED like to know from whence (where/location) and (source/on so many levels!).

    Good one! And I love the fringe topic, too…

  11. “The Leaf’s battery needs 20kg of lithium but 40kg of graphite, the Tesla Roadster’s battery needs even 100kg of graphite. While discussions about the scarcity of lithium were vivid 1-2 years ago and have now ebbed down, nobody has discussed yet the supply of graphite, indispensable anode material, to facilitate a large uptake of electric mobility.”

    1. “This is one feature that can be proven by an easily repeatable experiment. T. Galen Hieronymus, a famous radionic expert who died in 1988, did an experiment in which he took two identical potted plants and placed them in a totally dark environment. To one plant he ran wires which led to the outside and were exposed to sunlight. The other plant, the control, was not so connected. He watered and fed them alike and observed the difference between them. The plant with the wires was perfectly healthy, a state not enjoyed (if plants can enjoy anything) by the other one.” – “Basic Psionics”,
