www.facebook.com lienhoofdkwartier Fortean reseacher Nick Redfern discussed how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archaeological, historical, and religious mysteries. He stressed that government research into ancient mysteries is not a purely scientific endeavor. On the contrary, Redfern said, such investigations appear to be aimed at determining if ancient people had advanced technology and, if so, how to weaponize it. He also surmised that, should such discoveries be made, they would be kept secret to avoid opening "potentially problematic doors to the past." Over the course of the evening, he detailed the government's secret research into Noah's Ark and pyramids as well as esoteric anomalies like the Face on Mars and ancient Indian texts depicting nuclear war. Redfern traced the U.S. government's interest in ancient mysteries back to 1947, when the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered and drew the attention of the CIA. He explained that, a few months following the discovery, a mysterious Egyptian appeared at the American embassy in Syria and gave a portion of the relic to CIA agents stationed there. The identity of the Egyptian visitor remains a mystery as does the ultimate fate of the scroll he gifted to the CIA. As to the contents of the parchment, Redfern cited rumors which claim that it "related to the Book of Daniel and all sorts of references to strange dreams and prophecies." He theorized that such content would be of interest to the CIA, in light of their subsequent surveillance of noted 'prophets' in the 1950's and later research into remote viewing. According to Redfern, antigravity was another possible technology that the government hoped to discover through its study of ancient mysteries. To that end, he observed that cultures throughout the world possess pyramid structures that were created with massive stones said to be "raised in the air via magical means." This supernatural feat, he noted, was often attributed to mystical music. As such, Redfern said, the military took a great interest in the concept, performed studies on "acoustic technology," and actually managed to lift small objects merely using sound. Additionally, he cited a meeting in the 1950's between Morris Jessup, an researcher who contended that such ancient monuments were created by levitation, and a secret government weapons group that was interested in his findings. Biography: Nick Redfern has been interested in UFOs since 1978. His main area of research centers around determining what has been learned about the UFO subject at an official level in Britain. He has spent hundreds of hours at the Public Record Office in London, and has uncovered thousands of pages of previously-classified Royal Air Force, Air Ministry and Ministry of Defense files on UFOs dating from the Second World War. Nick is the author of several best-selling books on UFOs including: The FBI Files: The FBI's UFO Top Secrets Exposed; and Cosmic Crashes: The Incredible Story Of The UFOs That Fell To Earth. Nick also lectures on the UFO subject both in the U.K. and abroad. Wikipedia The Ark of the Covenant (Hebrew: אָרוֹן הַבְּרִית ʾĀrôn Habbərît, modern pron. Aron Habrit), also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a chest described in Book of Exodus as containing the Tablets of Stone on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed and pieces of manna. According to some traditional interpretations of the Book of Exodus, Book of Numbers, and the Letter to the Hebrews the Ark also contained Aaron's rod, a jar of manna and the first Torah scroll as written by Moses; however, the first of the Books of Kings says that at the time of King Solomon, the Ark contained only the two Tablets of the Law. According to the Book of Exodus, the Ark was built at the command of God, in accordance with the instructions given to Moses on Mount Sinai. God was said to have communicated with Moses "from between the two cherubim" on the Ark's cover. The covered ark with golden staves carried by the priests, and seven priests with rams' horns, at the siege of Jericho, in an eighteenth-century artist's depiction. The biblical account relates that during the Israelites' exodus from Egypt, the Ark was carried by the priests some 2,000 cubits in advance of the people and their army, or host. When the Ark was borne by priests into the bed of the Jordan, water in the river separated, opening a pathway for the entire host to pass through (Josh. 3:15-16; 4:7-18). The city of Jericho was taken with no more than a shout after the Ark of the Covenant was paraded for seven days around its wall by seven priests sounding seven trumpets of rams' horns (Josh. 6:4-20). When carried, the Ark was always wrapped in a veil, in skins and a blue cloth, and was carefully concealed, even from the eyes of the priests who carried it. There are no contemporary extra-biblical references to the Ark...
