THAT “NATURAL” NUCLEAR REACTOR IN AFRICA MAY NOT BE SO ...
Ms. S.H. shared this article, and this is one of those that simply has to be passed along, and commented upon, at the very least because I and others, including some in the scientific community, have commented on this reactor in Gabon, Africa, as being a natural nuclear reactor. Here's the article:
2-Billion-Year-Old Nuclear Mega-Reactor Discovered in Africa
There's so much here that raised my eyebrows - as it the the scientists involved, as the article notes - that one doesn't know where to begin. But consider the implications of these statements:
Elsewhere in the earth’s crust, on the moon and even in meteorites, we can find uranium 235 atoms that makes up only 0.720 percent of the total. But in the samples that were analyzed, which came from the Oklo deposit in Gabon, a former French colony in West Africa, the uranium 235 constituted only 0.717 percent.
That small difference was enough to alert French scientists that there was something very strange going on with the minerals.
These small details led to further investigations which showed that least a part of the mine was well below the normal amount of uranium 235: some 200 kilograms appeared to have been extracted in the distant past, today, that amount is enough to make half a dozen nuclear bombs.
Note first of all that this "natural reactor" occurs in a mine, which is hardly a natural structure, and that uranium had apparently been mined and extracted.
THen, there's this set of observations and admissions:
What was fund in Oklo surprised everyone gathered there, the site where the uranium originated from is actually an advanced subterranean nuclear reactor that goes well beyond the capabilities of our present scientific knowledge.
Researchers believe that this ancient nuclear reactor is around 1.8 billion years old and operated for at least 500,000 years in the distant past.
Incredibly, our modern-day nuclear reactors are really not comparable both in design and functionality with this huge megareactor.
According to studies, this ancient nuclear reactor was several kilometers long. Interestingly, for a large nuclear reactor like this, thermal impact towards the environment was limited to just 40 meters on all sides.
So, in addition to being in a mine, this natural reactor is also of a much larger size than normal fission reactors, and manages to store nuclear waste materials via natural geopological features limiting thermal signatures to about 40 meters from the reactor. But wait, there's more:
What is surprising is that a nuclear reaction had occurred in a way that the plutonium, the by-product, was created and the nuclear reaction itself had been moderated, which is considered as a “holy grail” for atomic science.The ability to moderate the reaction means that once the reaction was initiated, it was possible to leverage the output power in a controlled way, with the ability to prevent catastrophic explosions or the release of the energy at a single time.
However, Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg, former head of the United States Atomic Energy Commission and Nobel Prize winner for his work in the synthesis of heavy elements, pointed out that for uranium to “burn” in a reaction, conditions must be exactly right.For example, the water involved in the nuclear reaction must be extremely pure. Even a few parts per million of contaminant will “poison” the reaction, bringing it to a halt. The problem is that no water that pure exists naturally anywhere in the world.Several specialists talked about the incredible Nuclear Reactor at Oklo, stating that at no time in the geologically estimated history of the Oklo deposits was the uranium sufficiently rich (i.e. Uranium 235) for a natural nuclear reaction to occur.
When these deposits were formed in the distant past, due to the slowness of the radioactive decay of U-235, the fissionable material would have constituted only 3 percent of the total deposits — something too low, mathematically speaking, for a nuclear reaction to take place.
However, a reaction took place mysteriously, suggesting that the original uranium was far richer in Uranium 235 than it is found in a natural formation.
Now to put all this country simple: what this reactor suggests is first of all (1) it is the process of deliberate design (2) its sophistication is indicated by its size (3) it is almost 2 billion years old, and thus (3) constitutes corroboration of the thesis that there was a very ancient high civilization right here on Earth in the mists of High Antiquity, long before modern man appears in the genetic record. WHoever was here was "someone else." And it called to mind those mysterious "balls" that I mentioned in The Cosmic War, and which were first mentioned by Cremo and Thompson in their book Forbidden Archaeology. These balls were clearly machined objects, since three parallel groves were etched into their equator, and above this, a "pit" or "crater" appeared. These balls were discovered in South Africa in deposits that gave them an approximate age by stratigraphic dating of about 3 billion years.
I find all this intriguing for a variet of reasons, not the least of which is the earliness of the appearance of nuclear technologies, when compared to the textual records of "wars of the gods" from the Hindu, Mesopotamian, and other traditions, which indicate a cosmic war at a much later date. Assuming the civilizations or people fighting them and making reactors in Africa to be one and the same, this suggests that the nuclear development was not the peak development of its destructive science. Conversely, one might assume that this civilization declined(for whatever reason) and gave birth to another.
The chronological difficutlties of the texts, compared to the dating of this reactor, reinforce what I've been suggesting for a long time, and ever since my book The Cosmic War, namely, that it is far too early to construct an alternative timeline of events: our knowledge is still too sketchy. I strongly suspect, however, that that chronology could be broadly outlined, when and if we really explore the off-planet indications of artifical structures and "extra-terrestrial archaeology". For the moment, however, we have another clear indicator that the "standard narrative" of a long evolutionary "pre-history," and then of the emergence of mankind some 150,000-200,000 years ago, to the emergence of "hunter-gatherer" and then agrarian societies, leaves a lot to be desired.
See you on the flip side...

This Africa Natural Nuclear Reactor story bridges onto a theme I just wrote in replying to Betelgeuse.
There is, of course, an ancient civilization thread herein. The question remains; however, in what happened to this/these civilizations? It appears our solar system was home to an ancient alien presence. Perhaps more than one or two, or three, or…?
Now, there are these telltale signs showing up.
Good no CMM.
This leads one to believe that whatever it was, is still a presence. But in what form?
My high octane answer is: a form of artificial intelligence.
Even know, humanity is suffering do to the voracious nature of cybernetic capitalism. What is being liquated before our very eyes is nothing less than the human itself, whose slow burn discloses its inevitable suppression by the a-human machine process of the system that can’t be bargained with, can’t be reasoned with, doesn’t show pity or remorse or fear and it will absolutely not stop – ever, for what appears to humanity as history of capitalism is an invasion from the future by an artificial intelligent space that must assemble itself entirely from its enemy’s resources.
RB, I would agree except that it is an AI ‘invasion’ from the Past. As I have asked before, what is left when the organic part of a civilization falls? The AI.
There are probably scores of AIs out there, awaiting the rise of new species into technological-awareness. Once ‘contact’ is made, whether physically or through communication, the ‘injection’ occurs and the ‘organism’ grows within the system. Growth is steered away from spiritual technology and towards electronics-based technology. Surveillance escalates. TPTB seems inhuman and cold. And very long-range.
Sounds like a good-fit with our ‘culture’ to me…
We’re on the same wavelength; unfortunately, of all the dystopian futures – this is the one that fits the bill – too well.
First of all, any Uranium near-surface had to arrive after the planet cooled-enough to have a substantial crust. Earlier Uranium is now in the planet’s core. So, it was some kind of naturally-enriched ‘body’ that brought it in, perhaps originating-in a nearby supernova. I wonder if researchers have looked for diagnostic evidence of an ancient ‘hit’, like shocked quartz, nanodiamonds, etc.?
Second, it would take a technological culture of at least our ‘sophistication’ to even note the presence of Uranium concentrations. So, they knew of peaceful and destructive uses of Uranium. Well-worth the effort-involved to extract it…
The two obvious scenarios are indigenous and extraterrestrial. If indigenous, we ought to be looking-around in comparable-age strata for artifacts. One does not work their way up to technological sophistication without leaving massive evidence. What survives 1.8 billion years?
From the extraterrestrial side, I would see this as more like we view asteroid-mining today. Set up a local base-camp for habitation, extract the resource as long as it is profitable (or no outside force interferes), and pack up the important-machinery and leave when you can no longer extract-it at a profit. (Or, if you are a purely military-based outfit, when you have enough weapons-grade material for your purposes.)
Assuming that the ‘founders’ knew they were going to be here for a long time, why not use some of the material for ‘creature comforts’? There might be two ‘operations’, one for extraction and one for reactor-based electrical power, heat, hot water, etc. (Combined for efficiency, where possible.)
I am assuming that there were collected-ores of differing ‘grades’. When the order came-down to pack-up (or outside forces intervened), ores that were concentrated-but-not-processed would just be left there. Once their containment ‘barrels’ eroded and mixing occurred, would there be enough-enrichment to start low-grade reactions? Perhaps long-term reactions?
I read about this in Anolog magazine last century so it’s forty to fifty years long. I remember a episode of Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea with Robert Duval as the nemesis of the week. His original body was starfish like and his species lived millions of years before us. The article mention stress the naturalness of the nuclear reactor as a defense of nuclear power. Thou your combining it with metal 2.8 million year old balls in Africa puts this in the Ancient Alien-Atlantis files. kitona the two books you mention sound like defense off the old killer ape barbarism is good theories of the late sixties which seem to close to the hearts of our Western Elites By the way Joseph there is a article on that website on the Zika virus that the Gates are up to our elites old plans to kill us useless eaters off or turn us into Zugs or Gamas mindless slaves.
I agree; the cull is on and on hard. My sons and I work out with a couple of brothers who have eaten nothing but GMO, pre-packaged, etc since childhood. One of them was on Rytalin. The damage is obvious, compared to my kids who were fed non-GMO, fresh, wholistic foods. The problem being is exercise will help. But, it will not fix the affects of a regular MonSantano diet. Knowing and avoiding / mitigating the garbage.Inc toxins in the food and environment is a big deal. I am very thankful for this Red Pill knowledge.
Whoa! Very interesting indeed. I find it interestng that we went from short, squatty vegetarians like Lucy(Australopithecus) to tall, strong and carnivores Homohabilis in very short order. They needed help in the mines or so the story goes.. So, I guess using the Earth as a nuclear reactor is not that much of a stretch.
These uranium “anomalies” in Gabon – together with the gold in places like Mali – help understand why France is clinging tooth and nail to its “former” colonial territories in West Africa. But while hardly a day passes without the “progressives” criticizing British colonialism or what remains of it, French colonialism is alive and well and above all studiously ignored by the media, whether mainstream or otherwise, French or international.
I was intrigued to see from the “Scientific American” source to this post that the uranium anomalies were reported as far back as 1972. But then there are rumours that France does have its own special corner in the “breakaway civilization”….
It definetly screams of ancient civilization. The question is who were they?
Some scientists suspect life got started on Venus over a billion years before it started on Earth. Plenty of time for an advanced life form and civilization to spring up, travel to a nearby sister planet to try and Venusform and colonize before destroying themselves and their home world in a massive solar system and inter-dimensional wide conflict. Who knows this conflict may still be underway and might encompass multi-dimensional time itself. By multi-dimensional time I mean time travel and alternative timeline warfare. Makes me wonder what some of their other advance GMO servants might be up to around Saturn. Entertain for a moment if you please the idea that we were just one of many types of intelligent GMO hybrid worker bee class developed solely for work in conditions on Earth. Imagine other bizzare creations were custom engineered for life around Saturn and even more bizzare creations for work on Mars and who knows what else for whatever else. Now imagine that we weren’t the only creations to rebel against our potential genetic manipulators.
What is gained by the much much larger off-world civilization is being rid of a bunch of rebellious, decadent, non-conforming, difficult to manage, individualistic, citizens who continually make the running of an empire difficult for its rulers.
So just as we shove such people into prison to get rid of them, ditto this empire -> stick them on a god-forsaken planet out on the rim somewhere and let them squabble among each other to their heart’s content.
Perhaps, their genetic engineering got out of hand, and they had to flee.
Offhand, it doesn’t seem to me that theory of evolution and an ancient high civilization are mutually exclusive. Especially if that high civilization was 3 billion (or more) years ago, then that is perhaps enough time for a new human species to emerge and evolve.
There are a few books that I have read (before I discovered Dr. Farrell, by the way) that discussed human pre-history and what is interesting is that they came at it from very different directions yet had some similar conclusions and/or further questions. One book was about running and the other was about human sexuality. The two are:
‘Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen’
by Christopher McDougall
‘Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality’
by Christopher Ryan, PhD and Cacilda Jethá, MD
They both point to the idea that in pre-historic times humans were small bands of people (50-100) roaming the landscape (or literally running after animals) and generally enjoying an abundance of food & sex with long healthy, active lives and in a pretty decent balance with the natural environment. They both also sort of wonder, well then, what the happened? If I remember correctly, ‘Sex at Dawn’ references Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies”(which I’ve also read) and points to a passage which states that agriculture is the most drastic thing ever to happen to mankind.
Of all the animals domesticated by agriculture, man is it’s greatest victim. Which begs the question: why did this happen? Why would we do it to ourselves? It makes far more sense if there is an outside force guiding this development, whether remnants of an older civilization or an altogether extra-terrestrial one.
At this point in my life, it seems obvious that Earth is nothing but a slave planet. The question is to what ends? What does anybody gain by having us spend 2,000 years developing cities & all sorts of technology?
