Every now and then I receive an article from the "Gizars" that goes straight into the "Finals" folder, because I know when I glance through the email that I'm going to blog about it. In this case, the article was spotted by Mr. V.T., whom regular readers here will recognize as one of the regular "article finders and contributors". And readers will understand that any mention of the ancient (and still existent) Tamil people of southern India and of Sumer and Sumerians in the same context as "Antarctica" is going to raise my "suspicion antennae" into the red zone.
In this case, this is a story that was just brought to my attention, and I must confess that I am not familiar with the research of the people mentioned in the article. Like everything else in this "high octane speculation universe," exercise imagination, and caution. But once the reader has read the two parts of this article, I am certain that I won't even have to write anything further about why I am blogging about it today, though of course I'll mention it anyway.
Here's the two parts of the article:
Now, the contents of the first article are sensational enough: Tamils reaching Australia does put quite a different spin on ancient history, and would appear to corroborate the investigations of my colleague Igor Witkowski - that's the same Igor Witkowski that uncovered the Nazi Bell story - in his book Axis of the World, where he argues for a very ancient seafaring culture that spread from the Indian subcontinent across the Pacific to South America, contesting the standard view of the "Bering Strait" bridge of standard academic theory. (If you haven't read Witkowski's book, it's well worth your consideration, and is available from Adventures Unlimited Press).
But as one might guess, it's really the second part of this article that caught my attention, and here I am citing the article extensively, and including the figures and plates:
On Plate 5, Dr Winters wrote: “It was unlikely that there was any connection between Hanuman and the Indus Valley, because monkey figures do not appear on Indus Valley seals.”
He further stated, “I believe this is a human figure. It would appear that these heads are leaders from various Sumerian centers that formerly existed on Antarctica.”
“These people were probably from the Sumerian colony in South America, called Kuga Ki.”
“The Marambio Island head has three signs. The signs near the eye reads 'Ta ga’ or 'Open (up) esteem.”
“At the bottom of the figure we see two signs: a 'ga' sign, and three circles which reads as 'se'; these signs say, “The Patron is Mighty”.
Commenting on article Figure 7 (here below Plate 6), Dr Winters wrote, and I quote directly from his opinion piece:

Using Sumerian, we can easily read the inscriptions. There are four characters inside the 'box'. This appears to be the name of the individual and reads NALILISU which means: ‘The human being that glistens and shines (with) wisdom.’
The letters across the forehead include, from right to left, a single sign ‘u’, and a compound sign that reads from top to bottom Pa u mi Mash, or “The leader a powerful man is an Oracle and Shaman.”

The sign on the cheek appears to be a mash sign with an ‘I’ in the middle of the mash sign, or the determinative placed before Divine names. There is no name following the sign, so I read it as “I Mash’, Witness here the Shaman.”

We end Dr Winters fascinating report on the “Antarctica Writing ” with his transliteration of the 'Message on the Shore'; the ancient legend embedded into the Ross sea shoreline, and again I quote verbatim:
“The ancient legend embedded into the seashore is also a Sumerian inscription dedicated to one of the Arctic Chiefs.”

As I said, I am not familiar with this whole argument nor with Dr. Winters' research, so I am assuming its truthfulness for the sake of argument and today's "high octane speculation," which we may introduce by asking the question: "Is this the reason for all of the high strangeness associated with Antarctica?" Those familiar with my interviews and blogs about the subject of Antarctic strangeness will recall that my hypothetical explanation for all the strange people associated with, or that have actually gone to, Antarctica is because "they have found 'something,'" and my guess has always been that this "something" is not evidence of secret Nazi UFO or U-boat bases - a meme I do not subscribe to - but rather, some sort of evidence tying Antarctica to Atlantis, i.e., to a very ancient civilization, and possibly indicating human habitation of that continent in the distant past.
Now we have someone arguing that there are inscriptions in Antarctica, visible, apparently, from the sea and possibly from the air as well, that show a connection to Sumerian civilization, which, if true, would seem to corroborate my "guess," which I can assure the reader I made without knowing a thing about the story contained in these articles.
This brings me to today's high octane speculation, which may be highlighted by asking yet another question: "Exactly how long were these alleged inscriptions known? When were they first detected?" And that, of course, brings us to the two famous expeditions to Antarctica, the Nazi expedition of 1938-39, under the sponsorship of none other than Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, and the post-war American expedition, led by Admiral Richard Byrd, codenamed Operation Highjump. In my recent book Hess and the Penguins, I pointed out that there are peculiar parallels between the two expeditions: (1) both are sponsored by the two nations' militaries, and in each case, at the highest command level. In the German expedition's case, by Goering, and in the American case, planning for the expedition was overseen by Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, then the chief of the US Navy, and by Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal. (2) In both expeditions' case, part of their mission brief including making aerial photogrammetric surveys of the part of the continent they were respectively exploring. I have consistently suspected that both expeditions, notwithstanding any public explanations of their missions, had a hidden and secret agenda, namely, that they were both "looking for something." (And, for whatever it's worth, in Hess and the Penguins I also pointed out Admiral Byrd's son's strange death under highly suspicious circumstances when he was on his way to address the US National Geographic Society on an anniversary of the publication of his father's lengthy article about Operation Highjump. Do I suspect he was deliberately silenced, lest he "reveal" something or go off script? Yes I do.)
In that context, I have speculated that perhaps either the Germans or Americans or possibly both may have photographed something that indicated ancient settlements and an ancient human presence on the continent, and have entertained the speculation that perhaps this may have included ancient "high technology". The presence of Dr. Winters' research might thus indicate what, if anything, these expeditions may have found, and covered up: a Sumerian connection.
Now let's walk right off the end of the twig of speculation. As I pointed out in Hess and the Penguins, Rudolf Hess occupied so many positions of power within the Third Reich that it simply becomes inconceivable that he would not have been privy to whatever secrets - if any - discovered there and then classified. But more importantly, Hess was a member of the notorious interwar German secret society, the Thulegesellschaft. This society numbered some of Germany's "high and mighty" among its members, including a prince of the mediaeval banking house of Von Thurn und Taxis, which has an Italian branch, the della Torre i Tasso family. The Thule Society also adhered to the doctrine that the "Aryan race" came from off planet to this world, first landing at the poles. Which leads to yet another question: does this alleged discovery perhaps indicate that this doctrine might have some basis in fact? Might the sudden appearance of Sumerian culture in Mesopotamia, without any antecedents, a problem that has vexed standard historiography, be explained on the basis of an origin from elsewhere, i.e., from Antarctica?
It's that Sumerian connection that is so intriguing, because as I pointed out in yet another book of mine, The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts, the Mesopotamian writings contain abundant clues not only that such a war was fought, but fought with very sophisticated technologies. And "Atlantis" of course was, if Plato is to be believed, a very warlike society...
...and it was eventually submerged under lots of water...
See you on the flip side...
