Every now and then one of our regular readers finds one of those "gems" that can't be ignored, and today is no different, as Mr. I.R. found this paper (he was the first of many), and passed it along, together with his own outline of a "high octane speculation." The essence of the story? Some scientists are theorizing that perhaps sound waves have inherent anti-gravity properties:

Physicists Say There Could Be a Strange Source of 'Negative Gravity' All Around Us

The core of the article lies here:

Still, it's previously been thought that these phonons couldn't be affected by gravity - or have an effect on gravity - because they don't carry mass.

But earlier research by the team's leader, Alberto Nicolis, which was published in Physical Review Letters in May, provided some experimental evidence that this might not be the case - at least not under extreme conditions.

The experiment was conducted in zero-temperature superfluids, which are a strange type of fluid that flow with no resistance at all at temperatures close to absolute zero.

Under those conditions, Nicolis and his team reported seeing phonons' trajectories bend upwards, seemingly in opposition to the effect of gravity.

"In a gravitational field phonons slowly accelerate in the opposite direction that you would expect, say, a brick to fall," one of the team, Rafael Krichevsky, told Live Science.

The effect is too small to measure with existing technology, and there are also other potential explanations for this trajectory that have nothing to do with gravity.

But Nicolis' latest paper builds on the idea that the phonons were generating some type of negative gravitational field.

They propose that "the (tiny) effective gravitational mass of the phonon generates a (tiny) gravitational field. And the source of this gravitational field travels with the phonon," the team writes on arXiv.

"Thus, in a very physical sense, the phonon carries (negative) mass."

Now, we're not going to go into all the calculations carried out because they're pretty intense (you can read all about them in the paper).

But in short, the team was able to show mathematically that classical sound waves could carry mass - and not just in superfluids or the quantum world, but in real-world settings.

"We showed that, contrary to common belief, sound waves carry gravitational mass, in a standard Newtonian sense: they are affected by gravity, but they also source gravity," the team concludes.

Now for those currently reading, or who have just read, my earlier book Grid of the Gods or my latest book Microcosm and Medium...

...this will not come as any surprise, for in both books I have speculated that ancient temples, and later, churches, were deliberately placed on certain key nodal points of the world to modulate information into the "planetary field." The chief means of doing this was via sound, and if these scientists are correct, acoustic waves are inherently gravitational. In effect, what one is saying is that like any wave, information can be modulated into that wave, which then becomes a carrier wave for the information. One may think of the phenomenon as a kind of "gravito-acoustic" wave, if the theorectical speculation should bear any fruit.

But as Mr. I.R. pointed out in his email to me, a more exciting and tantalizing high octane speculation, however, is that if this approach should be proven to be true, it would give an actual basis in science for some very ancient legends, stretching from Egypt to Tibet to South America. And as I shall also mention, even to a more contemporary bit of lore. With respect to the ancient legends, in Egypt there are legends to the effect that the priests levitated the giant stones of their temples and pyramids with sound, and simply moved and positioned them into place. From Tibet, there are similar stories of the monks using chant and musical instruments (in most cases a large horn-like instrument) to move large heavy rocks. There are similar suggestive legends from South America and some indications of a similar tradition in Meso-America. If the paper should be true, then these legends take on new life.

A more contemporary story comes from UFO lore and from the 19th century airship mystery. My friend and colleague Walter Bosley has commented on occasion that his father, whom he believes with good reason had been involved in some highly classified black projects (see Shimmering Light By Walter Bosley), told him that one off the exotic technologies he saw had to be activated - literally - by a tuning fork. When struck to the craft, it levitated. The clear implication? Acoustics had something to do with the craft's alleged anti-gravity properties.

There is, as the article points out, already a bit of evidence that their speculations might be true:

But earlier research by the team's leader, Alberto Nicolis, which was published in Physical Review Lettersin May, provided some experimental evidence that this might not be the case - at least not under extreme conditions.

The experiment was conducted in zero-temperature superfluids, which are a strange type of fluid that flow with no resistance at all at temperatures close to absolute zero.

The effect is too small to measure with existing technology, and there are also other potential explanations for this trajectory that have nothing to do with gravity.

It's far from proof. By the same token, it's far from disproof.

But there's another bit of ancient legend, too, that the paper has implications for, far more disturbing implications. In Giza Death Star Destroyed I pointed out that the fourth tablet of the Bablylonian epic, the Enuma Elish, that Marduk's weapon involved in the destruction of Tiamat, which I understood to be a planet, had every appearance of being a kind of acoustic weapon.

Or to put it in more lapidary terms, what can be used to levitate, can be used to pulverize...

See you on the flip side...

    . . . After the first read through this entry and visits to assigned web links, Motion and those of its known characteristics and effects upon that affected, stood out boldly and noisily (couldn’t resist). . . There’s more than enough to keep one talking about it for a life time. . . Most folks would probably agree as they continue to use sound propagation techniques they were taught when younger such as word formation with the use of larynx, lungs, and mouth structures that include teeth, gums, and tongue when spoken and hearing when listened to since there is bone conduction of sound directly associated with verbal sound. . . Talking (speaking, writing, and brush strokes, etc.) and listening work together in an air or medium filled place. . .

    . . . One can recall the alarm bell experiment ringing loudly in the classroom laboratory and when that colorless gas (air) was evacuated from the glass container the ringing alarm clock was in, the ringing sound ceased to be heard. . . The ringing bell was still seen to be shimmering in time with the bell clackers. . . Whether that shimmering bell was still propagating sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, one doesn’t know as that aspect of the experiment didn’t come up in classroom discussions or for further experimentation. . . Maybe it should have for gravity sake. . .

    . . . Once, listening to “Egyptian Wisdom Keeper, Abd’el Hakim Awyan,” of the old language and ways of Kemit, just before his known and ordained transition from his corporeal presence, he spoke of a set of chambers in Egypt that baffled some modern Archæologists regarding their purpose and antiquity. . . He said that they were acoustic healing chambers [modern terms] for the monitoring and healing of the human form, but set way back in Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. . . While the afflicted member of society was placed in a designated chamber the initiated one would observe / perceive from another chamber and, in modern medical parlance, assess, diagnose, and prognosticate treatment / therapy from a holistic approach. . . One can liken sonography / ultrasound as a means of using sound waves to diagnose the physical form. . . The more skilled the clinician at interpreting returned wave patterns of organic forms (understanding tissue position, consistency, relative arrangement, and device limitations) the more accurate the treatment for purpose. . . There seems that there was something similar multiple millennium ago that was successfully used, but with a more human involvement if not direct involvement. . .

    . . . Today, many practitioners rely on prescribing medicinals (allopathic approach) to augment correction or cures where once sound was used for correcting tissue degradation suggesting another understanding about human anatomy and physiology. . . Whether it was strictly an acoustically applied energy and knowledge of physical form, one doesn’t know. . .

    . . . Acoustics, and much of what that term implies, seems limited to the human sensory apparatus for hearing as those specific dictionary words attest. . . No revelation there yet there are significant observations able to be made by way of one’s visual sensory apparatus and with increased amplification, by one’s tactile senses via the integumentary system (skin) that are not necessarily recognized on the first round of witnessing an intense sound phenomenon. . . For instance, one might see a woofer speaker moving, pulsing back and forth, when the base sound it is generating is intensely amplified yet not see the sound wave propagating out from the speaker center unless the air has particle contaminants dispersed or water vapor when humidity, dew point, and ambient temperature allow a slight condensing of water out of a saturated vapor to be seen moving away from the speaker. . .

    . . . There are other sound experiments where fine talc or powders are sprinkled upon a membranous surface, not unlike a drum surface, and when energized by speaker sound aimed at the coated surface demonstrates various interference patterns, more like wave pattern designs that are striking in their own way, as if a sacred geometry deployed. . . These patterns can be changed by changing the frequency of sound emitted from the speakers. . . Also, very interesting to watch and wonder how this pattern arrangement is done by, initially, invisible waves moving through the air. . .

    . . . The mention of a tuning fork being used for affecting inertial change on a craft seems analogous to the piezo-electric effect of certain crystal applications in modern electronics. . . An initial physical impetus induced on the tuning fork or crystal begets an effect on that which it touches or is attached. . .

    . . . Something similar from the Rendlesham Forest UK, event in 1980 might have taken place if one assumes that the human body resonates and can therefore transfer a resonance affect by touch. . . An airman on station purportedly touched a landed Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon or craft (UAP) which then started a binary code exchange between craft and airman. . . At any rate, it is something that isn’t spoken about much due to its inherent high strangeness. . . There are others quietly present who know of the significance of sound and wave propagation in many forms. . .

    . . . Since one does not know the flash-point of any high-octane speculation suggested in this entry it could be that it’s because current physics still does not have all the answers, if such is ever to be the case. . . No surprise or points taken off for trying, though. . .

    . . . One has no doubt that there are a great many things to learn and re-learn regarding sound from Ancient and modern sources. . .

    Re: Lost and his comment about John W. Keely . Check the website for access to many articles and insights about Keely and his 1880’s and 1890’s research and experiments bearing very much on the topics discussed in Joseph’s article (plus many other other areas of Keely’s research on levitation, high speed train travel. advanced aerial flight–remember the 1890’s aerial mysteries?–and other topics). Keely was especially good on sound experiments, musical notes, musical instruments and resultant teleportation of huge objects. posted by Kurt Ulrich

    Very interesting stuff. It’s all to do with sound, electricity and rotating things, folks …

    Just reading a book on lost technology by Gerry Vassilatos. Interesting what has been developed by people only for it to be disregarded or sat on. I learned something quite fascinating from this book, and that was that James Clerk Maxwell when drawing up his equations for electromagnetism looked at a number of electrical phenomena, and built his equations on those. However, he didn’t take into consideration ALL electrical phenomena. He filtered them. So what we have is a missing part in the equations. And when you take into consideration Heaviside’s simplification of Maxwell’s equations … you have a big missing bit of the equations.

    I believe that that is what the “black projects” are toying with. There are not only errors in the equations, but there are whole missing parts of the equations. What they know could change everything.

    ps I don’t trust Bosley. He smells far too much like Doty for my mind … but that could just be me(?)

    Could this be the key technology in providing us a reliable surface to orbit spacecraft that has held back our space program. And combining the best of a heavier than air and dirigible aircraft instead of the gliders with motors we use now. This seems to be part of the battle between our elites who want to give us the key to the universe and those who enslave us on a prison-slave world.

  5. Robert Barricklow on August 23, 2018 at 3:06 pm

    This has been the lore of the ancient aliens moving heavy objects w/sound waves. I remember some guy Florida who allegedly was able to do this but wouldn’t elaborate.
    Also, it’s interesting as one approaches the quantum level or absolute zero, or other limits? strange Alice-In -Wonderland thru-the-looking-glass. occur.

    The cosmic war illustrates that whatever the technologies; some inherent flaw transforms the information thru another dark-sided looking glass…

    A subtle aspect, in the English language, is “liking the likeness”, in attraction of similarities. (“Like” has, profoundly, a dual meaning.) Morphogenetic field, as ingroup essentiality, is another word for Christ.

    A falling stone is keen on earth. It is drawn to it.* A stone, that is not keen on earth, will go elsewhere. (Narcissus transcends, through the celestial mirror image, into deep space.)

    Should a “dying” stone “fall” to heaven, then a “death” ray ought to cause levitation. Perhaps sublunary and translunary are principles, that reveal opposite attractions, in the mirror image of Elohim?**

    *C.S. Lewis, “The Discarded Image”, 1962.

    **Elohim and Yahweh are celestial and seasonal year, thus translunary and sublunary defined. There is circumstantial proof to the fact.

  7. Kahlypso on August 23, 2018 at 8:56 am

    I think it’s Tellinger who spoke about stone cones been used to levitate large rocks, to explain how that guy built his Coral Castle. Stone Age technology must be using stone. How much do we think we know?
    German explorers seeing Tibetan Monks levitating stone masses using horns and chanting.
    Mesoamerican towers and walls being built on cliff sides.. its either levitation or giants…(they said it was giants…)
    (Oumuamua…Regular shaped Asteroids..why does rock have to be primitive? Hiding inside hollowed out asteroids is the only way we’re going to get through intersteller space.. once we’re out of the Heliosphere (if we get through the magnetic bubbles without frying our tech) our ships will be subjected to intense radiation. . . unless the wormhole thing can happen..The Spice must flow..

      Yep he sure did, plus he found loads of distinctively shaped pebbles/stones/rocks etc that when struck in a particular place rang out like a bell.

      • Katie B on August 23, 2018 at 9:27 am

        P.s. you could also look at the moon being hollow and how it rang like a bell when the Russians landed on it. I wonder what would happen if you struck the moon at a certain point with a particular frequency?

      As I see it the two are not mutually exclusive… Gigantomachy can occur in multiple forms and simultaneously within the same class of persons.

    This column made me think of the “lazy stones” of Ollantaytambo, Peru…

    From Ancient Technology in Peru & Bolivia by David Hatcher Childress (2012) :

    “We had a great view [from the quarry] of the Urubamba River far below, and the fortress of Ollantaytambo on the other side looked smaller than a dollhouse. It seemed incredible that these gigantic blocks of stone [red porphyry granite, weighing 50 to 100 tons after cutting] were to be hauled down the mountain, across the river, and up the other side to the steep ridge where the Sun Temple stood. The effort involved would appear to be superhuman…” (p.271)

    “When looking at the huge blocks left in the quarry and the large lichen spots on them, it seemed like the cutting and moving of the stones had stopped thousands of years ago.” (p.273)

    “The quarry for the stones is on a mountainside across the river and, as we have noted, a trail of “lazy stones” can actually be followed down to the river and then to the western side of the sharp mountain ridge upon which the Sun Temple sits. The remains of a ramp up the west side of the ridge and other roads can also be seen. Still, the stones had to be moved down a mountain, across a river, and then up the steep slope of a ridge to a small plaza with steep drops on every side.” (p.276)

    Sounds to me (hah, sorry) like some advanced technology (or advanced consciousness) contributed to the moving. Levitation due to sound is as good as any. Otherwise, why bother taking-on so difficult a task? (Perhaps because it was not difficult at the time…)

    What is also interesting is that it could appear that ‘something’ interrupted the ability to levitate those stones, and the stones being moved were just left where they dropped. A Tower of Babel Moment for the (pre-)Incas ?

  9. Miguel Oniga on August 23, 2018 at 7:48 am

    Maybe the harmonic-melodic sequences attributed to ‘Lennon-McCartney’ were an early pre-set code for this century.

  10. Lost on August 23, 2018 at 7:36 am

    Very like John Keely in Philadelphia in the later 19th century.

  11. WalkingDead on August 23, 2018 at 7:27 am

    Pretty much everything has a resonant frequency, from a wine glass to cells in viruses, if Nicola Tesla, Rife, and others are to be believed. These resonances can be used to heal or destroy and are used in electronics all the time. I used to test my hardware with sine vibration looking for any destructive resonances during acceptance testing. You can find videos on the internet of people levitating small objects using resonant, sinusoidal sound waves; up the power and you can levitate larger objects.
    I would think that antediluvian civilizations had a much better understanding of acoustics and a more complete physics in order to accomplish the things they did. Giza is a prime example of that physics as they were able to use the electrical properties of the stone coupled with acoustic chambers in what must have been an amazing machine.
