Just when you thought that there could not possibly by any more stories of high strangeness coming out of Antarctica, something comes along to ignite the speculative imagination, and today's story, shared by Mr. J.Q., and followed up by many others, is no exception. This story, as most regular readers of this website, or for that matter of my books, are aware, the "High Antarctic Strangeness" began with Hermann Goering sponsoring the Nazi expedition of 1938-39 to the continent, with strange ties to Rudolf Hess. Then of course came the inevitable (and monotonously repetitive) "Nazi last Battalion" stories about Admiral Byrd and Operation High Jump being kicked out by die hard Nazis holed up in their secret flying saucer research and assembly facilities in the continent. I've not subscribed to such theories for a variety of reasons that are not necessary to research here. But American Admiral Richard Byrd did lead a postwar expedition to the continent, and he did leave much earlier than the expedition was scheduled. The expedition was planned at the highest levels, including then Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and then Secretary of the Navy John Forrestal. On his return, Byrd wrote a lengthy article for National Geographic, appeared on a few television shows, and then the story was forgotten, until his son, who was invited to give a speech on a major anniversary of his father's expedition to the National Geographic, never showed up, went missing, and was subsequently found murdered in an abandoned warehouse in Baltimore. As if that's not enough high strangeness, the Admiral's relative, Colonel Byrd, just also happened to own a stake in the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas, TX on Nov. 22, 1963, where you-know-who supposedly accomplished the world's greatest feat of marksmanship with a misaligned telescopic site on a World War Two Italian carbine rifle.

But wait, it gets stranger. We then saw former US Secretary of State John Kerry taking a "detour" to the continent during a diplomatic junket during one of the most hotly contested elections in American history. We were told he wanted to check out global warming first hand. Uh huh. That was followed up by former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who tweeted a number of curious things before and after going to Antarctica, things like "getting ready to go to the launchpad," and allegedly, that what he saw there was "pure evil." The Patriarch of Moscow, Kiril III also made the trip, to bless the Russian Orthodox chapel there, and to have his picture taken.

Then came the strange pictures of perfectly rectilinear blocks of ice - rectangular icebergs - breaking off from the ice shelf, just as a NASA aircraft snapped the photo, which we were informed was purely accidental because they weren't really all that interested in perfectly rectangular icebergs of about a kilometer's length. Uh huh. Following that escapade, a number of videos showed up on YouTube from various people in the alternative research field, with truly strange and anomalous things allegedly showing up on google earth, and equally cleverly being hidden from them. Many of these strange pictures appeared to show holes or openings - again, some of very rectilinear nature - in the surface of the ice and rock.

Well, now there's this, and as one might imagine, it has my high octane speculation motor working in overdrive, and my suspicion meter in the red zone:

Scientists Have Detected an Enormous Cavity Growing Beneath Antarctica

Now, in the context of all of the above high strangeness, consider the following paragraphs from the article;

Now, a stunning new void has been revealed amidst this massive vanishing act, and it's a big one: a gigantic cavity growing under West Antarctica that scientists say covers two-thirds the footprint of Manhattan and stands almost 300 metres (984 ft) tall.

This huge opening at the bottom of the Thwaites Glacier – a mass infamously dubbed the "most dangerous glacier in the world" – is so big it represents an overt chunk of the estimated 252 billion tonnes of ice Antarctica loses every year.


"Thanks to a new generation of satellites, we can finally see the detail."

Rignot and fellow researchers discovered the cavity using ice-penetrating radar as part of NASA's Operation IceBridge, with additional data supplied by German and French scientists.

According to the readings, the hidden void is but one ice casualty among a "complex pattern of retreat and ice melt" that's taking place at Thwaites Glacier, sectors of which are retreating by as much as 800 metres (2,625 ft) every year.

The complex pattern the new readings reveal – which don't fit with current ice sheet or ocean models – suggest scientists have more to learn about how water and ice interact with one another in the frigid but warming Antarctic environment.


The Thwaites Glacier actually holds in neighboring glaciers and ice masses further inland. If its buttressing force disappeared, the consequences could be unthinkable, which is why it's considered such a pivotal natural structure in the Antarctic landscape.

Just how long it will stay, nobody knows – which is why scientists are right now embarking on a major expedition to learn more about Thwaites.

What they'll find remains to be seen, but it's inarguably among the most important scientific research being conducted in the world right now.

Now, as Mr. J.Q. pointed out in his email to me, it takes a little reading between the lines to see what is not being talked about, and what is not being talked about are the usual things one might attribute to massive melting of an Antarctic glacier. There's no mention of global warming (though it seems to be implicated from some of the remarks). There's no mention of volcanism. And there is mention of a bit of "mystification" in that "new readings" do not seem to "fit with current ice sheet or ocean models."

In other words, they don't have a clue.

Now, when I read this article, I couldn't help but think of all those strange "independent" videos purporting to show all sorts of strange stuff in Antarctica. I still remain very skeptical of many if not most of those pictures, but some did appear to be holes or openings in the surface of some considerable size, and they did not look to my layman's eye to have been "photoshopped." Putting today's featured article together with those, and it would appear that Antarctica may perhaps be honeycombed with all sorts of underground structures. And that brings back the possibilities that Admiral Byrd's Operation High Jump may have encountered something "down there," something which, perhaps, Secretary of State Kerry was sent to "talk with." Who knows? But if that is the case, and if the current scientific crews seem to be at a loss on what mechanism is causing the cavity under the Thwaites glacier, and if they're not talking about how perfectly rectilinear icebergs manage to break off, then perhaps it's time to entertain the hypothesis that "someone" may be down there, and perhaps be using some sort of high technology to create the situation, or to give the appearance of "high technology."

Yea, I admit, I walked right off the end of the twig once again on that one. But when all that high strangeness in Antarctica is added up, it's far more strange than the massive melting occurring there.

See you on the flip side...

    Could it be that the huge cavity is a large igloo…..a living space in in a cold climate….natural, manmade, or somewhere in between?

    A very interesting article, which also bears on Antarctica:
    (The author credits multiple, low-angle cometary impacts inducing a crustal slippage, about 12,900 years ago. This would certainly be a reason for abandonment of Antarctica by an ancient civilization…)

    “The above strongly suggests that before the Younger Dryas, the North geographic pole was located around Hudson Bay, which is about 60° North – that is, 30 degrees in latitude away from the current North pole.

    Another piece of evidence comes from Antarctica. A geographic North pole located around Hudson Bay would place the geographic South Pole about seven times farther away from the Ross Sea in Antarctica than it is now. Therefore, the Ross Sea should not have been glaciated at the end of the Pleistocene (c. 13,000BP). This is exactly what sea cores revealed with layers of fine sediment typical of temperate climates. This fine sediment is carried by rivers from ice-free continents.

    Interestingly, if the North pole was located in Hudson prior to the Younger Dryas, it would explain two mysteries that have puzzled many experts. First, the awkward orientation of Stonehenge and Teotihuacan. The main axis of these two sites points roughly towards the North, but not exactly (Teotihuacan is 15° off while Stonehenge is about 40° off). However, both point directly towards Hudson Bay. One might wonder if Stonehenge and Teotihuacan were built prior to the Younger Dryas and aligned with the North-South axis of the time.”

    about 6 minutes in they show the first googleearth pic of a c-shaped under ice (i assume) track. it’s actually a circle after taking out google earth’s built in distortion of antarctica’s map.

    quinn michael’s (corey atkins?) speculation is that this is a black accelerator ring and that all the accelerator rings, overt and covert, are involved in command and control from antarctica and ai.

    and from the Thwaites article, pray tell me, how much HAS the sea level risen in the last 25 years that Thwaites is mostly to blame for?
    and what else is not being talked about, or as Wigington puts it, the elephant in the lounge room (or ice chest)
    and when they say glaciers have retreated by a humungous amount, are they ALSO going to say how much they advance at other times? of course not.
    “evil” means – to THEM – not in our (their) club as in stranger than their fictions.

    • Robert Barricklow on February 8, 2019 at 12:28 pm

      No that’s something I hadn’t thought about.
      If “they” could make the oceans rise; destroying extremely valuable beach-front property’s – “they” could make sea levels fall and what do you know; “they already picked those properties up for pennies on the dollar[or even less].

    Since the Runic matrix is older than the pyramid, then ancient technology must be Druidic.

    Since Druidry can be traced back through biblical narrative, Darwinism becomes a proven hoax.

    Point is, that whatever went down in high antiquity, it is still ongoing. Runic matrix is hyperdimensional pyramid in language structure.

    Also interesting was this animation of how the declination (deviation from magnetic north/south lines) has changed over the entire world over time, not just at the poles:
    If you watch the animation (above), the South Magnetic Pole seems to be drifting northerly and out of Antarctica in the direction of Australia (implied from the line concentrations).

    This is confirmed in another page, showing the South Magnetic Pole moving offshore around 1980 :

    (As the North Magnetic Pole is also heading from Canada towards Siberia, I have no idea what the above means; just thought I’d add it to the pile…)

      overdue for a pole shift, right?

    Sir David Attenborough hinted at the Antartica Treaty during a speech he made at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology in the UK. At Davos, he employed the metaphor of the “Garden of Eden” when speaking about climate change & the need to protect the planet. But something feels strange about all of the visits made by luminaries such as John Kerry, Prince Harry, Bill Clinton. We’re told that there is a huge cave; but what could be so “evil”? “Evil” doesn’t sound like a natural phenomena. The media doesn’t ask John Kerry, Prince Harry, or Bill Clinton, et. al. what’s going on? Why? Kerry, a Prince, and Clinton do go there to gaze at glaciers. Like so much else, the public is kept in the dark–and that’s dangerous.

    Any elevated local levels of atmospheric tritium and deuterium at yonder cavity?

    West Antarctica is a mess. If you look at geological maps of the southern third of our planet (which include sea-bottom contours), it is evident that Antarctica has spread-away from South America on Antarctica’s western side. That whole West Antarctica area is like taffy being pulled apart. Use ‘expansion’ view of:
    Good general info:

    austhrutime dot com/australia_antarctica_separation.htm
    “Microcontinental blocks linked the Antarctic Peninsula to the tip of South America up until about this time [38 million years ago, or Ma], since then plate movements and seafloor spreading associated with the opening of the Scotia Sea has separated them. It is not known exactly when the Drake Passage, the expanse of sea between the Antarctic Peninsula and southern South America, opened. Lawver et al. (1985) has suggested that it opened some time between 64 and 34 Ma, but Barker & Burrell (1977) have suggested it was more like 30-25 Ma.”

    West Antarctica is a perfect area for multiple crustal splits and subsequent vulcanism (large and small). In the mundane world, I would put the void under the glacier down to this cause.

    In the end-of-the-twig world, the same input might lead to a different output. If you were an ancient civilization (before the spread-away from South America became serious), you might have built serious power sources for same, on the western side of the ‘oval’ continent of Australia. Perhaps high-tech (reactor or exotic), perhaps low-tech (geothermal field).

    Fast forward several tens of millions of years. The former inhabitants are long gone, but their ‘works’ remain. But now, they are in the middle of an active geological region. What could go wrong?

    Phantom Empire serial anyone or the novel The Ice People then there Who Goes There and an H. P. Lovecraft novel. Take your pick Antarctica has long been a setting for many a story for film, television as well as written short stories and novels.

    Don’t worry guys, UK scientists are going down there on an expedition to see how much it will contribute to sea rises, oh and they’ll be lots of seal tagging. Move along, nothing to seee here.

    Apart from google earth images in the vicinity showing what looks like a cydonian head, two cat like sphinxes amongst other high strangeness.

  12. DownunderET on February 5, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    This “A” thing ain’t going away is it. With all the high elites and religious people visiting down there, it’s no wonder an end of the twig is appropriate .
    I just don’t know what to make of it, but what ever it is, no one is talking.

    There is a Thwaites Glacier organisation website listing projects with names such as Prophet, Ghost, Thor, Time etc.
    The Pine Island location was, some of you may recall, one of those allegedly deserted places where “Fitbit” users were tracked. After the uproar (at least among the cognoscenti!) over strange “Fitbit” traces in various parts of Antarctica, the company stopped showing them.
    And here is a tidbit from the Wiki page for that Glacier:
    “The Thwaites Glacier Tongue, or Thwaites Ice Tongue (75°0′S 106°50′W), is about 50 km wide and has progressively shortened due to ice calving, based on the observational record. It was initially delineated from aerial photographs collected during Operation Highjump in January 1947.”

    If we can bore 28′ circular holes through rock, how much of a stretch would boring through ice be? I would think a bit easier…

    First thought: terrestrial boring machines[growing].
    Thanks to a few “public” satellites “we” can see.
    [what is deemed safe?]
    Propagandist, er., scientist have more to learn about water/ice to esplain things to us dumbed-down.
    Well, surprise!, surprise!,
    another way to weaponize Antarctica!

    If its terrestrial its The Nazi International?
    Extra-terrestrial? How long has “it” been here?
    Or, part of an op to manufacture “They’re Here!”?

    Glaciers melting from the bottom up would seem to indicate an unknown source of heat below the ice. What that might be is anybodies guess.
