On September 1st I flew to Sarajevo to take part in the 2014 Hidden History Tour & Conference with Dr. Sam Osmanagich (August 31st to September 6th). I decided to go there after receiving an email from a friend who had just returned from a week long sojourn to the pyramid and tunnels. She was ecstatic about her experience and her enthusiasm infected me. I decided to contact the people there who were planning a week long conference and archaeological tour in Bosnia just two weeks hence. I was fortunate in that they were able to include me at that late date to present a lecture at their conference. I was added to the roster of speakers just before the conference began which is why my name is not listed in the above linked brochure.
I was totally amazed by what has been discovered there and of the immense volunteer effort to further excavate this site. As I stated at the press conference, held on the last day of the conference, I consider this to be one of the most important archaeological excavations going on at this time on our planet. These findings will one day completely transform our ideas about prehistoric civilization. You can view the press conference video here: https://vimeo.com/105483113. It was shown on five stations in Bosnia to raise awareness about this important archaeological find. I am seated at the table second from the end on the right. I speak at about minute 36 -43 through the video. All views are interesting to hear. They are all intermittently translated into Bosnian by Dr. Sam Osmanagich, the fellow wearing the hat near the center of the press table.
Dr. Osmanagich is the one who first discovered this pyramid complex in 2005. He also heads the archaeological foundation excavating the pyramid and the nearby tunnel system. He has written a book summarizing some of the findings of their excavation which is entitled “Pyramids Around the World and Lost Pyramids of Bosnia“. He is quite amazing in that he has been able to orchestrate this entire excavation project, in spite of being shunned by many mainstream archaeologists and archaeological societies. This project has attracted volunteers from all over the world to help in the excavation. Some of the team come with previous experience which makes them valuable assets.
I lectured later that day, speaking about the gigantic ice age floods that once swept through that region, how they covered the pyramid with flood deposits. I also spoke a bit about galactic superwaves and about advanced science concepts encoded in ancient constellation lore. The video of my lecture is posted here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub2c3tBrWlg&list=PLZW5o98FQbmbaYXDdGueJb-wjqmEAgAQZ&index=67.
Lecture by Paul LaViolette: https://vimeo.com/106060022
1) There are about seven pyramids and tumuli that are located in relatively close proximity to one another; i.e., within a few kilometers of distance. The largest pyramid, which has been named the “Pyramid of the Sun”, is the tallest pyramid in the world. It has a visible height of 220 meters and engineer Senad Bahor estimates that it could even be as high as 360 meters, based on a 3D computer model constructed through analysis of satellite ground imagery. The Bosnian “Pyramid of the Moon” comes in second place with a height of 190 meters. By comparison, the Giza pyramid, which formerly held the record as the tallest pyramid in the world, now comes in only at third place with a height of only 146.5 meters.
On this trip I did not get a chance to travel to the Pyramid of the Moon, at which site the volunteer archaeologists have also made some extremely interesting findings. Nor did I see any of the other lesser pyramids. So as a result, this discussion will focus more on the Pyramid of the Sun and the tunnel system whose main entrance lies in Ravne about 3 kilometers from the Pyramid of the Sun.
2) The pyramid of the Sun is oriented with respect to true north with an error of only 12 seconds of arc! This orientation is far more accurate than that of the Giza Pyramid which has an orientation error of about 3 minutes of arc, 15 times greater! The other pyramids are also oriented with respect to true north. The three largest pyramids, the Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon, and the Pyramid of the Dragon are each separated from one another by approximately 2.18 kilometers with an error of less than 2 percent, to form the three apexes of a near perfect equilateral triangle. Natural mountains simply don’t arrange themselves with this kind of precision to form such geometric patterns.
3) This pyramid complex is the oldest known man made structure in the world. A radiocarbon date on a fossilized leaf found under one of its concrete slabs indicates an age of around 33,800 calendar years before present (~29,200 C-14 years BP); see photo below. The Cariaco Basin-Hulu Cave radiocarbon calibration chronology requires that a correction of ~4600 years be added to the radiocarbon date to compensate for C-14 reservoir changes.) Other radiocarbon dates back up its antiquity. This places the pyramid’s construction in the middle of the ice age, about 6000 years after the extinction of Neanderthal man which had occurred about 40,000 calendar years ago. Another radiocarbon date was secured on organic material found above a concrete slab and beneath the overlying clay deposit covering the pyramid. This indicated a later burial date of 24,800 C-14 years BP, equivalent to 30,000 calendar years BP, which supports the earlier date for the pyramid itself.
4) The main structure of the pyramid is constructed of a concrete made from a gravel conglomerate that was mined from a flood conglomerate layer that underlies the pyramid and adjacent area. Evidence of this excavation is the existence of a vast network of many kilometers of tunnels present in the region surrounding the pyramid. The concrete has been laboratory tested and been determined to be of artificial origin, not natural origin. Tests have shown that it has a hardness and resistance to water penetration equal to the best concretes achieved in this 21st century. Analysis showed that its fabricators made their concrete by mixing their mined conglomerate rock material with a special cement binder made of roasted lime and clay. The concrete was cast to form large slabs that were separated from one another by clay layers for greater structural stability. Also the builders used an slab interleaving technique that also improves structural stability. Although, this may not evoke the aesthetic appeal of the polished stone surfaces evident in some ancient monuments, the choice of the construction method nonetheless evokes an appreciation of brilliance, one that allowed efficient fabrication of the pyramid structure encasement from raw materials available in the local vicinity.
5) There is what is called an “access plateau” leading up the west side of the pyramid. It has the shape of a ramp that is 420 meters long, 35 meters wide, inclined at about 20°, and paved with sandstone tiles that have apparently been cut by human hand and transported to their present location.
The pyramid is covered with ice age flood deposits which are deeper on the south side of the pyramid. I propose that these deposits that buried the pyramid were transported by giant avalanche-like waves of glacial meltwater (what I call continental glacier waves) which came from the North, the pyramid being then located about 600 kilometers south from the southern edge of the European ice sheet. This flood assault from the north would explain why the deposits are much deeper on the south side since this would have been the leeward side where deposits would have more easily collected to a greater depth. Just the presence of these deposits which are seen to cover the Pyramid of the Sun, as well as the other associated pyramids, is proof by itself of the ice age antiquity of these edifices.
6) An electromagnetic energy beam issues vertically from the peak of the Pyramid of the Sun. It usually has a diameter of about 28 feet, but varies in size and can sometimes reach a diameter of 100 feet. Its position is also observed to move around in a radius of about 50 feet. It has a frequency of around 28 kilohertz, and is found to vary in intensity with its voltage amplitude ranging from 40 millivolts to 4 volts. Its signal may even be absent for some periods. This was found to be accompanied by an ultrasonic wave beam of similar frequency that was observed to have a diameter of 5 to 6 meters, to similarly move around the pyramid in a radius of 15 to 20 meters, and to vary in intensity and even shut off entirely for periods of 10 minutes or so. Weather was observed to affect the intensity of the ultrasound beam.
Hills or mountains are not normally observed to spontaneously radiate directed energy beams from their tops. So, if anything, the presence of such beams coming from the top of the Pyramid of the Sun should indicate that its outer soil deposits are covering something that is quite unusual and certainly not of natural origin. No one knows how the beams are generated. But it is highly unlikely that the electromagnetic beam is radiated by a radio antenna of the sort most are familiar with. To radiate a 28 kiloHertz radio signal, a quarter wavelength dipole antenna would need to have a length of at least 2.7 kilometers! This is far larger than the diameter of the radiation beam itself. Moreover such antennas normally radiate over a very wide angle; they do not confine their emission to a beam. Although one possible explanation has been suggested by professor Mizdrak based on the results of an experiment conducted a few years ago which is described below.
Beam emission is found in lasers but such beams are monochromatic (single discrete frequency) and this is not. Moreover no laser is known to lase at such a low frequency. Another possibility is that it might be a phase conjugate beam similar to technologies developed by the military for use in microwave beam weaponry and aerospace propulsion (e.g., Project Skyvault). But then again, this implies the existence of highly advanced technology, perhaps more advanced than what 21st century science has achieved, but in stone age times!
The anomalous character of the beam is strengthened by the observation that its signal intensity is found to increase with increasing distance above the vertex of the pyramid. The beam has been detected as high as 30 meters above the pyramid using a drone, and airplane flights are planned to see if the beam can be detected at even higher altitudes. As one possibility, one might imagine that the beam may have a source above the pyramid (i.e., in space). But this would require the presence of a geostationary satellite which if present should be known to most superpower defense departments which raises questions as to who would have placed such a probe aimed down at this particular pyramid and why the military allows its homing signal to be broadcast.
These Bosnian pyramid emissions really push the ancient technology paradigm to the limits of credibility. We are reminded of the book by Arthur C. Clarke, and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey in which astronauts unearth a monolith on the moon its presence having been detected by a signal that it was periodically broadcasting. But the existence of the signal at the top of the pyramid is undeniable, having been measured by scientists from a number of universities. Admitting that it is there and the possibility that the pyramid is associated with technology as advanced, or more advanced than our own is probably more than most mainstream archaeologists would be willing or able to handle. They would likely block out the whole matter from consideration, pyramid, tunnels, and all, no matter what supporting proof was presented for the pyramid’s authenticity. Because, to admit its existence would mean they must step into what they consider to be “woo woo land”. Show them evidence that there was organized human civilization building pyramid structures during the mid Ice Age period and they become suspicious. Show them evidence that this civilization may have been technically highly advanced and they become very angry. More than anything, the denial by mainstream archeologists reflects on their own psychological limitations when confronted with what to them is utterly unknown or impossible.
A similar 28 kHz energy beam has been detected emanating from the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon. Except in this case the primary beam is found to be modulated with a beam of slightly higher frequency of around 42 kHz. This is 1.5 times higher in frequency. In effect, the 28 and 42 kHz signals would be like second and third harmonics of a 14 kHz signal. So, there is a definite indication that a resonance phenomenon is taking place within the pyramids.
What was the purpose of these signals? Valery Uvarov at the 2014 conference in Sarajevo suggested that they might be spacecraft homing beam markers. Airports use the same concept. They transmit an electromagnetic homing beam that airplanes use for landing while on autopilot. Another possibility that has been suggested is that it might be some sort of communication beam. When the ultrasonic beam of the Pyramid of the Sun is electronically converted to bring its sound down to the audible frequency range, its modulations sound to some people as though it is conveying some sort of information. One other idea to throw into the works is that perhaps the builders of the pyramid did this to call attention to their pyramid structure so that future generations might be notified of its presence and not think that it is mearly a mountain, as many archaeologists persist in believing. Perhaps they knew that one day it would be covered by flood deposits and needed to incorporate a marker beacon.
7) Now here is some further food for thought to throw into the mill as another possible explanation for how these energy beams are generated. The Pyramid of the Sun is underlain by a conglomerate rock layer that also extends for kilometers into the surrounding land area where it is found to be permeated by a labyrinth of tunnels dug in prehistoric times. It is found that this conglomerate material contains quartzite as one of its main rock components. Quartzite is a diamagnetic metamorphic rock formed when quartz-rich sandstone or chert has been exposed to high temperatures. Like quartz, it is piezoelectric, meaning that it will generate electric fields if vibrationally excited. This principle is used to keep the second hand accurately ticking in your wrist watch. Now, it is known that quartzite grains or rocks have natural resonant frequencies that range from a few kilohertz up to many megahertz depending on their size, the larger the rock, the lower its resonant frequency. For example, in the case of a quartz crystal, a crystal having a thickness of 10 centimeters (4 inches) will naturally resonate at 28 kiloHertz. Interestingly, if we take the speed of sound in concrete we find that it is 3400 meters per second, about 10 times the speed of sound in air. An ultrasound wave manifesting a frequency of 28 ± 6 kiloHertz in concrete will necessarily have a wavelength of 10 centimeters! Just a coincidence? This means that ultrasonic vibrations generated by the quartzite will produce sound waves whose wavelength (12 ± 3 cm) approximately matches the dimensions of the quartzite rocks that are resonating at this frequency and hence will sympathetically reinforce their vibration causing self-amplification of the resonant vibration! This makes one wonder whether the ancient architectural plan to construct a pyramid encased in concrete made of embedded quartzite may have been purposefully done as a way of amplifying a resonance that was naturally present in quartzite rocks of the proper dimension. Moreover because these quartzite rocks are piezoelectric, they will be producing an oscillating electromagnetic field of the same or similar frequency. Of course, quartzite will have somewhat different resonant frequency than the example given above for quartz, and this will depend on the impurities present in the rock. But, in general the resonance will have a wavelength size that will center around quartzite rock inclusions of about the size that are found in the concrete and conglomerate layers.
8) A very large number of ancient artifacts have been retrieved from the underground tunnel labyrinth, some even inscribed with runic-like symbols. Since these date from the time of the tunnel construction and before its Neolithic date of being sealed off, they testify to the authenticity of the Visoko tunnel site as being made in prehistoric times. The artifacts are exhibited in the museum and archaeological repository of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation. I had a chance to view some of them and they are very impressive. A few are shown in the photos below. The stone with rune-like writing was found in Ravne in 2006. The stone bearing a pigmented effigy at one of its ends and easily held in the hand was found in association with 20 other stone artifacts buried under conglomerate. According to curator Timothy Moon, organic material in this same stratum yielded a radiocarbon date of 20,100 C-14 years BP (i.e, ~24,500 calendar years BP). Interestingly, both this date and the 30,000 calendar year BP date mentioned earlier correlate with the dates when ice age mega tsunamis would have swept over Bosnia. The first correlates with the date of Heinrich Event 2 and the second correlates with the date of Heinrich Event 3.
The Ravne Tunnels:
9) Within a few kilometers of the Pyramid of the Sun a vast system of tunnels has been discovered, situated from 5 to 25 meters underground, and excavated within a quartzite-rich conglomerate layer apparently deposited by an earlier flood. The main entrance to it was discovered 2.9 kilometers from the Pyramid of the Sun and is in a region locally known as Ravne. Some tunnels in this labyrinthine network extend several kilometers underground and these have branch tunnels that split off about every 20 meters or so. Also every so often along their length a tunnel will widen into a room-like chamber from which other tunnels branch out. One such chamber that has a ceiling height of 4 meters serves as a hub for eight tunnel passages. Ground radar indicates that the tunnel system being excavated will ultimately connect with chambers below the pyramid. So Dr. Osmanagich feels that within a few more years of excavation efforts that they will be able to penetrate to the interior of the pyramid.
10) After examining the Ravne tunnel labyrinth during my tour in September, I became convinced that this ice age civilization had excavated it to create an underground refuge space where their people could take shelter from episodes of elevated cosmic ray bombardment. My astronomical and geological research had shown that galactic superwave cosmic ray volleys and mega solar flare conflagrations had recurrently plagued the Earth during the last ice age. This is substantiated not only by astronomical and geological evidence outlined in my writings (e.g. in Earth Under Fire), but also in the many legends of the burning of the Earth by the Sun that have been handed down from the past in cultures all over the world.
The largest such cosmic ray event to occur prior to the time of the excavation of the Bosnian tunnels and pyramid construction was that which transpired during the 6000 year long hazardous period which extended from 46,000 to 40,000 calendar years BP. During this period there occurred the largest Galactic cosmic ray flux event of the last 50,000 years, which is seen in the Vostok, Antarctica ice core record as a beryllium-10 (10Be) peak centered around 41.5 kyrs BP, 10Be being an element produced in the Earth’s atmosphere by galactic cosmic rays; see graph below. In my 1983 Ph.D. dissertation and 1987 Earth Moon and Planets paper, I had predicted that such peaks would be found in the ice record and proposed that they should be associated with periods of increased solar flare activity. That is, I had reasoned that upon its arrival a galactic superwave cosmic ray volley would propel cosmic dust into the solar system, which in turn would be accreted by the Sun, aggravating it into a state of elevated solar activity. Seventeen years after the Vostok data had been published, the Cariaco Basin extended radiocarbon record became available and, not surprisingly, it was discovered that, during the period spanning this 10Be spike, radiocarbon in the Earth’s carbon reservoir rose more than six fold.
The cause of this increase perplexed oceanographers because it was too large to be due to terrestrial effects such as changes in the intensity of the geomagnetic field. Although smaller scale increases were regularly interpreted as indications of increases in solar flare activity, they found it difficult to imagine that the Sun’s flaring activity would rise so high and persist in this active state for so many millennia. Apparently they were not aware of the superwave theory. Nevertheless the data leave one to the inescapable conclusion that this radiocarbon increase was caused by an extreme elevation in the intensity of cosmic ray radiation striking the Earth. This could have been due to the impact of either superwave cosmic rays or solar flare cosmic rays associated with an extended period of high solar activity. At its height, this event was far more severe and prolonged than the super solar proton event that appears to have precipitated the megafaunal extinction at the end of the ice age and which had its greatest impact in North America and Europe; see my paper in the journal Radiocarbon.
The idea that the Sun was overly active during the ice age has had some support from astronomers such as Thomas Gold and Harold Zook who some four decades ago based their conclusions on studies of lunar rocks. More recently, physicist Anthony Peratt and his group have concluded that prehistoric petroglyphs found around the world were depicting auroral displays of mega solar storms.
In the midst of this solar cosmic ray conflagration, the Earth’s geomagnetic field intensity became depressed to 5% of its present day value for a period of 1500 years (42,300 to 40,800 calendar years BP) and around 41,300 calendar years BP, near the end of this magnetic intensity low, the geomagnetic pole reversed for about 400 years; see paper by Bourne, et al. (2014). Geophysicists call this the Laschamp geogmagnetic reversal. The occurrence of a geomagnetic reversal during this period of high solar activity confirms a theory put forth in 1983 that at times of extreme solar storms, when the Earth’s radiation belts become overly flooded with solar cosmic ray particles and produce a powerful equatorial “ring current,” the resulting opposing magnetic field can be strong enough to cancel out the Earth’s magnetic field and in extreme cases even cause a field reversal. That the Laschamp reversal should occur at this time indicates that the solar cosmic ray bombardment that was causing this precipitous rise in radiocarbon concentration was indeed quite intense.
It is no wonder, then, that Neanderthal man became extinct at this time. In Earth Under Fire, I had conjectured that Neanderthal man had become extinct within a relatively short period of time at the height of this comic ray episode. Paleontologists at that time, however, had no idea that Neanderthals might have been extinguished by a cosmic cataclysm. They were generally of the opinion that they had died out gradually as a result of competition with humans, with some enclaves of the specie living to times as recent as 20,000 to 30,000 years ago. It was only this year that a study was published in Nature magazine indicating that these earlier dates were erroneous and that Neanderthal man in fact became extinct on a particular date around 41,100 ± 1000 calendar years BP (Cariaco-Hulu radiocarbon chronology). This date coincides in time with the 10Be concentration peak and the extended solar cosmic ray onslaught, thereby confirming my prediction.
It is also not a surprise that this newly found extinction date falls in the very midst of the Laschamp geomagnetic reversal with its accompanying implication of extreme solar storm activity. With the Earth’s protective geomagnetic field at near zero intensity, cosmic rays would have reached the ground in full force and any hominids spending too much time outdoors away from their cave shelters would have received a lethal radiation dose. The worst periods would have been at times when the geomagnetic field was undergoing its greatest longitudinal swings indicating particularly high solar cosmic ray activity.
Homo sapiens also populated Europe for at least 5,000 years prior to this extinction event. Did they survive because they were more aware of the hazards of cosmic ray exposure?
Finding that the latest dating chronologies indicate that these unparalleled events all occurred around the same time, I then realized that the ancient Egyptians had preserved a record of this same very important date in their chronicles. The King List found in the ancient Egyptian Royal Papyrus of Turin states that the predynastic “reign of the gods” began 36,620 years before the time of Menes (~3050 BCE), which would be 41,670 years ago. Apparently, the ancient Egyptian priests were marking the passage of time forward from this very important hominid extinction date.
The beginning of this period of high solar activity also coincides with the extinction of megafauna in Australia. About 90% of Australia’s ice age mammals became extinct by around 46,000 years ago, including all marsupials exceeding 100 kg, and 22 out of 38 species in the 10 to 100 kg range. Also three large reptiles and three large flightless birds became extinct there. In Tasmania the mass extinction is dated to have occurred around 41,000 years ago around the time of the Laschamp geomagnetic reversal; see paper by Turney, et al. (2008). Archaeologist John McGovern, a member of Dr. Peratt’s group, has found numerous Aboriginal petroglyphs in the Australian outback which date back over 40,000 years and which make reference to the occurrence of a solar cataclysm.
If knowledge of such a horrible event in human history were handed down to the pyramid builders, it is understandable why they would have gone to such extremes to excavate tunnels thinking that a similar event would recur. After returning from my trip to Bosnia, I did further research to check out what the geologic record tells us about the level of solar activity at the time that the Pyramid of the Sun was constructed. What I found was very interesting. In the centuries prior and centuries after the pyramid’s construction, solar activity was at its highest level since the extinction of Neanderthal! The 33,800 calendar year BP pyramid construction date falls in the midst of what geophysicists call the Mono Lake geomagnetic excursion, an event that stretches over a period of three millennia from ~35,000 to 32,000 calendar years BP; see paper by Negrini, et al. (2014). Paleomagnetic studies indicate that during the first thousand years of this event, 35,000 – 34,000 calendar years BP, geomagnetic intensity fell to 5% of its present value, as it had done during the Laschamp reversal. During this time the north geomagnetic pole swept to a western equatorial Pacific location. According to the Cariaco Basin radiocarbon record, radiocarbon levels, and hence solar activity, rose to a peak during this early phase, but subsequently fell sharply around 34,000 years BP allowing geomagnetic field intensity to spring back to a more normal level. So, more tolerable radiation levels then began to prevail.
Having managed to survive the preceding lethal millennium, these ice age people likely became convinced of the need to begin building protective underground shelters. In fact, measurements that scientists have conducted within the Ravne tunnels have shown that the cosmic ray radiation intensity there is far lower than outside in the open air, as one might expect. So, the tunnels would have offered any nearby ice age residents a haven of safety. Considering that it contains many kilometers of branching passages, as well as many room-like chambers, I estimate that this subterranean labyrinth could have once held as many as a 50,000 people.
Apparently, these wise architects made the right decision, having taken advantage of the ensuing cosmic ray intensity lull to complete their tunnels and pyramid, because the Cariaco radiocarbon data indicates that during the remaining two millennia of the Mono Lake excursion cosmic ray exposure of the Earth rose on two occasions, from about 33,100 to 32,700 calendar years BP and again from about 32,200 to 31,500 calendar years BP. Also a number of cosmic ray intensity upswings occurred during the millennia that followed. Presumably, these ice agers were able to safely weather these events from the secure confines of their underground dwelling.
11) The tunnel system somehow regenerates its air, always maintaining its oxygen level at 20% without any need of ventilation. Measurements indicate very high levels of beneficial negative ions in the tunnel atmosphere, 200 times higher than in the outside country air! One possibility is that the 28 kiloHertz ultrasonic vibration that permeates the tunnel somehow induces sonic dissociation of the water droplets, sonic cavitation effects perhaps splitting the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. Although this theory needs further testing, photomicrographs made of water droplets in the tunnel show that something excites their surface and causes microscopic water clusters to seed off from their surfaces. People say they feel energized after spending some time within the tunnels and claim to have had health ailments cured. I heard some testimonies first hand. So, many visitors to the Ravne tunnels come for heath purposes, to “energize” themselves. It is reminiscent of healing that takes place at spiritual centers such as Lourdes. In fact, many people take home with them bottles of water taken from the Ravne tunnel which is believed to have healing properties, the energy vibrations within the tunnel system having imprinted themselves into the molecular structure of its water.
12) Large man-made ceramic stones of amorphous shape have been found in some of the tunnel chambers, some weighing up to 12 tons. Most are too large to have been transported into the tunnels and somehow must have been fabricated there. Some of these stones are inscribed with hieroglyphic writing, presumably dating from the mid ice age period. Again, this shatters all concepts of human history. You can understand why the conventional archaeological community has frowned on this excavation project: It throws all their carefully assembled theories out the window.
13) The purpose of the stones is not fully understood. Some theories suggest that they somehow interact with the energized environment to enhance healing effects reportedly occurring within the tunnels. People sitting around these stones and meditating or chanting have reported spiritual experiences. There is also the mystery of the luminous orbs that appear in some camera shots and are seen moving around in some videos taken within the tunnels. They call to mind the dandelion-seed-like spirit entities portrayed in the movie Avatar. In my group there were a number of people I met who showed me digital images they had just taken which showed the orbs. Normally these are not visible to the naked eye. This is not because of their size (because in fact they appear quite large in these shots), but rather because they luminesce at wavelengths outside of the visible, but within the camera’s spectral range. I guess they may be emitting in the ultraviolet. Some appeared in the very first picture I took upon entering the Ravne tunnels, but in no others. This was the shot shown above in which Dr. Osmanagich is leading the way. I have magnified a portion of this to show two orbs captured in the shot. The small white specks seen against the ceiling may also be orbs as well.
To fully appreciate the orb phenomenon, it is best to see videos which have captured them flying around, such as those uploaded to the net:
Also here is an interview of people who witnessed them:
In addition, below is a video of the tour of the Ravne tunnel system that I was part of on September 2nd, 2014. The tour was led by Dr. Sam Osmanagich who is seen speaking in the video along with Klaus Dona, Michael Tellinger, and Valery Uvarov who were speakers invited to the conference. I also appear in places in the video.
Sam (Semi) Osmanagich is exceptional in that he has withstood discouragement and moved forward in spite of being criticized and shunned by standard archaeological organizations, experiencing great resistance from the local government who under the influence of archeologists have passed laws preventing the excavation of the upper main portion of the pyramid. Perhaps geologist Robert Schoch could help improve relations with the archaeological community opposition if he were to revisit the Visoko site and assess the archaeological finds that had been made since his visit there in 2006. Currently his website maintains the opinion he formed back in 2006 that the Bosnian pyramid is simply a mountain.
In conclusion, one who visits the Visoko pyramid and tunnel excavation site will be impressed by the aura of enthusiasm that circulates there and really infects one. People of many diverse backgrounds have been converging there from all parts of the world: amateur and professional archaeologists, physicists, geologists, dowsers, mystics, media crews, pyramid explorers, and people from many other walks of life. Maybe you will be next to go. 🙂

Admittedly the above title is rather tongue-in-cheek. But as always, a carefully crafted title leads more certainly to a raised eyebrow and purchase “off the bookshelf”.
The target audience will be skeptical yet open-minded inquirers.
I draw heavily from Earth Under Fire. I also intend to address the question, re: whether there is a way to anticipate the next superwave. Fair space will be devoted to Ch.10 (Evgeny Podkletnov) from Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion.
Also – – – I have assembled considerable information re: ancient VHCs, w/photos – including yours of the Bosnian pyramids. In fact, select photos downloaded from South American Puma Puncu site demonstrate conclusively that the “makers” there (and elsewhere) must’ve had considerable computing power at their disposal.
More books will follow. I’m 75 and intend to get my two-cents-worth in print while I enjoy superb health.
Thank you, Sir – Your works have greatly inspired me!
I love the title of your book, James.
Regarding the Bosnian pyramids, please feel free to make use of the 40+ videos I’ve shot in the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in 2014:
And here are 16 videos I shot officially for the Archaeological Park Foundation (Semir’s nonprofit here) in 2014:
“The Mysterious Anti-Scientific Agenda of Robert Schoch: Part 1 – The Bosnian Pyramid Complex”
“The Mysterious Anti-Scientific Agenda of Robert Schoch: Part 2 – The Yonaguni Monument 与那国記念碑”
“Witchcraft Cartography and Clairvoyant Archaeology: A Review of Robert M. Schoch’s ‘Voices of the Rocks: A Scientist Looks at Catastrophes and Ancient Civilizations'”
Thanks VERY much, Jock . . . for the video sharing, and for your endorsement of my proposed title.
“Ice Age” is taking me down several paths. One of these is ancient megalithic structures, and that leads naturally to fairly reasonable speculation about ancient manufacturing technologies – including one that has only recently been exposed in mainstream media.
First title will take the longest as I still need to navigate whatever obstacles remain between selecting a publisher, etc, etc. More should follow naturally, from what I’ve stumbled upon.
I had long-suspected the Rockefellers were active in suppressing naturopathic as well as homeopathic knowledge, while simultaneously promoting “managed health care” via allopathic medicine. Command-control economics exposed!
Looking forward to further correspondence,
During the 60-ies the Yugoslav National Army built the underground military facilities throughout Yugoslavia, particularly in Bosnia. These structures are built of thick reinforced concrete as a shelter for Josip Broz Tito and the General Staff of the Yugoslav People’s Army. Similar facilities are buried in the Velebit mountain in Croatia.
I have a friend here in Visoko, Bosnia — Tarik — whose relative was in the Army. Tarik’s relative says that not only did the Yugoslav National Army (or Yugoslav People’s Army) not build the tunnels, they never used them to camp in or do anything else in. Although concrete does cover the top of the entrance to Ravne tunnel labyrinth, there is no concrete inside the winding tunnels, only hundreds of thousands of tons of fill-in material — loose sand and river stones brought in 4,600 years ago by an unknown culture to full the tunnels (but not the water channels, which for some reason were left open) — and ceramic megaliths so large that, in the case of Megalith K-5, for instance, 1,000 people couldn’t move them.
If anyone wants to learn about this amazing ancient tunnel, built an estimated 30,000 years ago by a highly advanced ancient culture, below is a playlist of videos shot in 2014 about different aspects of the tunnel:
Have a scientific day.
Yes, perhaps Zoki was referring to another location in Bosnia where tunnels were dug. It shows that the human urge to dig tunnels for safe haven from hazards above has not changed for over 30,000 years.
And please spread this to your friends !
KICKSTARTER: BOSNIAN PYRAMIDS TUNNEL EXCAVATION
Continuing Ravne tunnel excavations with the intention of breaking through to passages that lead beneath and into the Bosnian pyramids.
Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation has been engaged in the excavation of Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth since 2006, shortly after Dr. Sam Osmanagich discovered an ancient pyramid complex in Visoko, Bosnia.
Archaeological Park, a nonprofit foundation created by Dr. Osmanagich to oversee the excavation of the pyramid complex, and its associated tunnels, hopes to continue excavations in the coming months, from November 2014 through May 2014. The Foundation is now in need of financial help to continue employing Bosnian locals to work in Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth throughout the fall, winter, and spring.
It has been an incredible journey into the dark mists of history. The Foundation wishes to continue its work of discovery and revelation as the new millennium unfolds.
Please consider becoming part of this leading-edge archaeological project, a project that is even now rewriting history to reflect the astonishing truth that advanced human civilizations existed in the distant past and that ancient technology was far superior to what our textbooks have told us.
All of the discoveries made by Foundation workers have been shared, and will be shared, with the world — both on video and, if people choose to visit Visoko, Bosnia, in person.
Thank you to Paul LaViolette for his incredible contribution to the conference in Sarajevo:
And thank you to M Catic for mentioning Semir’s Kickstarter project to keep Ravne tunnel excavations going from November 2014 through May 2015.
Thank you Jock
Dr LaViolette, this is so incredible, thank you! Your presentation was excellent and very informative. I also was interested to follow Timothy Moon’s presentation. The amount of artefacts he has uncovered is impressive, but something he said toward the end continues to perplex me. What did he mean that some of the things can be talked about, some can’t? Has Mr Moon by any chance uncovered evidence of alien military occupation of the Earth, and fearing reprisals, has opted to keep quiet about it? I ask because the following morning after I saw the presentation I had a dream that made this reality crystal clear. Doubt you may, but in my experience dreams contain a lot of truthful information. Has Mr Moon confided any secrets to you? Will he reveal them to the rest of us soon?
Alien military occupation? That’s a fairly big leap of induction! Perhaps you don’t know much about how scientists operate. Most keep things close to the chest until their analysis is done and they have a better understanding of what they are dealing with. Otherwise if they were to have premature exposure and draw erroneous conclusions that got widespread publicity, it could later backfire on them. Reputations have been entirely dismantled through such mishaps. This is especially the case with the Bosnian pyramid research since there are many opponents out there in the scientific community waiting for something to criticize with the aim of ridicule. At present there are a number of findings that have been made which are unannounced until analysis results come in. This shows that Tim Moon is operating in a prudent and well measured manner in conducting his research.
Dr LaViolette, thank you so much for taking the time to reply. Perhaps I should have left aliens out of it to make my point. At this time of year around the equinox my sixth sense is at military-grade sensitivity and some of the methods of the devils would indeed be alien to most people. That said, I agree that Tim is doing an outstanding job, so well in fact, some professional archaelogists could learn from his example. And, as you point out, he works against incredibly well organised opposition, a veritable army of cynical detractors. I pick up on these things, for instance the case of the editor that was banned in a Wiki dispute over this, or Tim’s own discomfort when presenting the dates he obtained – from Ukraine of all places. So I think it will help him when he gets verification from elsewhere and in particular when he obtains new data to work with using the 3D scanning method he so impressively crowdfunded on Kickstarter! It’s a shame the dig season seems to run only during the summer, I would have wanted to wish Tim’s own little batallion of volunteers continued success. But next year, with Tim as commander again, I’m sure they have nothing to fear, alien or military!
Dr. LaViolette –
The images are phenomenal, I really enjoyed reading about the Bosnian pyramids. Question: The Ordovician–Silurian extinction has been attributed to the effects of a supernova. I was curious generally if in your research there was any correlation or association between superwave events and supernovas? Further, are there any conditions existing today that suggest a supernova could impact the earth?
Thank you very much Dr. Paul LaViolette and Team(s);
I am so pleased that my best friend, Kevan L. Brown emailed the link encompassing this Article to me.
Both Mr. Brown and I read extensively–everything we can find on Ancient History, Archaic Art and Archaeology. We believe that the history of Intelligent Beings on Earth goes back to c.445,000BCE, and our earlier existence has waxed and waned, as it were based upon a certain cycle of Technological ‘movement’.
Though we very diligently follow the exposure of every Pyramid discovered around the world. I had absolutely no information on this particular one–until Mr. Brown just recently posted the link to me.
Thank you for all the work you and yours do for progressing-knowledge for our perusal, in this regard,
Thank you Dr Paul for such a comprehensive and expansive article, and also for your superb presentation at Hidden History Conference 2014, Sarajevo.
Just a small comment on your point 5…..that the ‘access plateau’ of Sun pyramid is grassland pasture on West side. What you have photographed at 20 degree angle is excavation site No 11 on the North side, where all the major excavations are. The South side of Sun Pyramid is damaged and inaccessible. I have enjoyed volunteering at this Valley of the Pyramids for a total of 6 months over the last 2 years.
I look forward to your further illuminations on the project, and hope that pyramid energies will continue to enhance your appreciation of the deeper values of life and all beings everywhere.
Yes, I knew that the excavation photos shown were from a site on the North side. To clarify this I have edited the caption of the diagram to include mention of the location. Thank you for clarifying about which side of the pyramid the access plateau is located on. I was apparently wrong to think that it was on the South side. As you say, the plateau is on the western side. I have changed point 5 to correct this misconception and my related inference that this was somehow helping to buttress the pyramid from waves coming from the North. Nevertheless the fact that the flood deposits covering the pyramid are deeper on the South side supports the idea that the pyramid was at that time impacted by flood waves coming from the North.
You delivered a great presentation at the Hidden History Conference Sarajevo, this September. 🙂
Here it is on Vimeo:

At the conference, Valery Uvarov asked me to send your complete talk to him (which I did). High praise, methinks.
Thanks again for your great work.

Dear Dr. La VioLette,
I have been reading through the links posted with your evaluation of the site, and your link to Robert Schoch was illuminating. The behavior of Schoch is understandable if you understand the nature of a Zwangswirtschaft governing model, as I am sure you will be able to relate to how it has influenced your career and of others in other fields of endeavors. Since Government’s are the leading source of funding for any major work, it not surprising that some people prefer an income over the truth, specially if the truth is not politically correct.
The Zwangswirtschaft Type of Socialism
“It is, of course, true that this type of socialism preserves some of the labels and the outward appearance of capitalism. It maintains, seemingly and nominally, private ownership of the means of production, prices, wages, interest rates and profits. In fact, however, nothing counts but the government’s unrestricted autocracy. The government tells the entrepreneurs and capitalists what to produce and in what quantity and quality, at what prices to buy and from whom, at what prices to sell and to whom. It decrees at what wages and where the workers must work. Market exchange is but a sham. All the prices, wages, and interest rates are determined by the authority. They are prices, wages, and interest rates in appearance only; in fact they are merely quantity relations in the government’s orders. The government, not the consumers, directs production. The government determines, directs production. The government determines each citizen’s income, it assigns to everybody the position in which he has to work. This is socialism in the outward guise of capitalism. It is the Zwangswirtschaft of Hitler’s German Reich and the planned economy of Great Britain.”
If you don’t know what Zwangswirtschaft is, I suggest you take 15 minutes and read the linked article then do an internet search.
Zwangswirtschaft or Specifically, the stresses the inherently destabilizing and retrogressive characteristics of the interventionist dynamic within a market system and argues that the dislocations produced by political intervention in the market system ultimately require the replacement of the price mechanism by a completely different system for the allocation of resources based on arbitrary political decision-making.
Let’s call this what it is, in the US,we Spend 1.75 Trillion Dollars annually for compliance cost’s “Zwangswirtschaft”.
Thank you Dr. La Violette, for coming forward and putting your stamp of approval on this important archaeological project and for lending your credibility to witness what you term “one of the most important archaeological excavations going on at this time on our planet.” I couldn’t agree more! It’s a shame that it has taken so many years for an American scientist to come forward and investigate and objectively report on the findings and data that have been revealed about the Bosnian Pyramids, tunnels and tumuli, through independent, interdisciplinary and international investigation over these past 9 years since their discovery. You did an amazing job of summing up all the data collected, which will make it easier for newcomers to this project to catch up. And thank you for calling out Dr. Schoch, a fellow American scientist, to step up to the plate, pay another visit to Visoko, and reconsider that his initial analyses of the structures within the Bosnian pyramidal complex were incorrect!
MERCI pour le PARTAGE…LES CONSCIENCES EVOLUENT…LA VERITE REMONTE A LA SURFACE… FORMIDABLE TRAVAIL MERCI à vous tous!!! Je n’ai qu’un REVE: VOUS REJOINDRE!!! Anne.

– where can I find out more information about this? Nothing on the press conference about it as far as I can tell.
You can try this link which gives some information:
Or you can google the words.
Dear Dr. La Violette,
We are already waiting for your next book on the Bosnian Pyramids!
Another -real- giant leap rewriting the true history of the mankind!!
Greetings to Dr. Sam Osmanagich too!!!
Giovanni & Heidi <
Very interesting reading. In 2013 and 2014 I have arranged spiritual group tours from Norway with more than 200 person.
Many person from the Groups have great healing experience in the Ravne tunnels. I look forward to more tours next year.
I too had the opportunity to visit the Bosnian Pyramids in 2013. I can assure you that they are everything that Dr. Paul says they are, and more. What surprised me more than anything is the calm spirituality that engulfs the area, and yes I had a spiritual experiance after meditating at the ceramic stone in the tunnel. While I was there I noticed that the large stone was poured in layers, it is not a natural stone.
To view the pyramids from a geoglyphological perspective visit http://www.thefaramfoundation.com/bosnianpyramid.htm
This is an extraordinary site for sure. It also got me to thinking about the tunnels/caves in the Grand Canyon that were shut off from the public Visitors were restricted from entering Kincaids Cave after the Grand Canyon National Park Act was finally signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919
FBI Agents now guard Kincaids Cave and other Archaeological Sites in the Grand Canyon.
The National Park Service will not allow any excavations of the Pyramid Temples.
Amazing photo’s of gold artifacts and other things found in the Grand Canyon.
But nothing is as amazing the Area being shut off from the public nor the Egyptian request concerning the discovery.
” Prime Minister Nubar Pasha of Egypt was first Prime Minister of Egypt and served his first Term from January 1884 to June 1888.
Prime Minister Nubar Pasha of Egypt contact the US Department of State and requested that all of the Egyptian Artifacts found in the Grand Canyon to be returned to Egypt.
He also requested that no more Information about Egyptians ever being in the Grand Canyon be Published by the Smithsonian Institution ”
One has to wonder Just how much is Hidden from us “useless Eaters”, whatever status we are officially regulated to.
More research is needed on this story before we can believe it.
The Smithsonian denies having such artifacts and denies that they sent an investigator to the Grand Canyon.
So either the story is fake, or the Smithsonian is hiding the artifacts or ooparts as some might call them. The story claims that a nineteenth century Egyptian prime minister requested that the artifacts be returned to Egypt and that the Smithsonian make no mention of their discovery in the Grand Canyon. So, there is a possibility that they abided by the prime minister’s request and did so, if that story is true. But I am a bit skeptical that the U.S. would bend so easily to the political requests of such a superpower as nineteenth century Egypt. One question I have is in regard to the authenticity of the photos shown in this article. If the items are not on display in the Smithsonian as the article claims, then what are they pictures of and from where? The only media record of such a discovery is in a 1909 western newspaper article, which had no accompanying pictures to give as proof. So one suspects that it was a hoaxed article.
Uau, that is amaizing! And the conection with tunnels and the superwaves makes big sense. My thinking is that they were closed down becouse of the fall of human consciousness. They knew the cycles. In that period of time we would probably destroy the tunnels, use them as shelters in the wars and so on. As human consciousness is rising, so are the findings that make sense at the right time. Maybe we can learn how to survive big superwaves. Thank You Dr.Paul. Your work is amaizing!
Very interesting Dr. LaViolette. If you are right about a very advanced civilization living in the Pyramid is correct, it simply re-inforces my belief we do not have Aliens roaming around here, simply a race living here, who deemed they want to remain alone and seperate from the rest of humanity. They are still living in a cave or some such place because they know Earth is a part of a very large Ghetto and living on the surface makes you Extinct eventually. I cannot imagine what a race of humans with 30,000 of advanced technolligy would have in common with us, really…
Thrilled to see you’ve embraced this dig as legitimate. Certain runes & glyphs seem very similar to the Vinca script found not far off.. I read Dr. Sam’s book on the Maya and wonder if they too possessed an SQK model of reality as described in GotC (along with the builders of this Bosnian complex of course) … great write up; thank you
Amazing! Thank you Dr. Paul, for such a detailed and informative report of your experiences, as well as your lecture at the conference, at the stunningly mysterious Bosnian Pyramids.
The photographs in your posting are excellent…and very much appreciated as are the links. Again, thank you for the thrilling new post!
