The Lords of Ancient Anatolia - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Hittites established an empire centered on Hattusa in north-central Anatolia around 1600 BC. In the Amarna tablets, which have been dated to the 14th century BC, the Hittites were clearly regarded by the Egyptians as a major power. In antiquity, the swastika (卐) was used extensively by the Hittites, sometimes as a geometrical motif, other times as a religious symbol.

Robert Sepehr is an author, producer, and anthropologist.
American congressman Ignatius Loyola Donnelly (1831-1901) wrote a chapter titled "The Aryan Colonies From Atlantis" in his book, Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, where he said:

Did the Aryan race come from Atlantis?

"The center of the Aryan migrations was Armenia. Here too is Mount Ararat, where it is said the ark rested, another identification with the Flood regions, as it represents the usual transfer of the Atlantis legend by an Atlantean people to a high mountain in their new home."

"The Greeks, who are Aryans, traced their descent from the people who were destroyed by the Flood, as did other races clearly Aryan, herein we find another evidence of relationship between the Aryans and the people of Atlantis.. the Greeks, an Aryan race, in their mythological traditions, show the closest relationship to Atlantis. We have seen that Zeus, the king of Atlantis, whose tomb was shown at Crete, was transformed into the Greek god Zeus."

"There is another reason for supposing that the Aryan nations came from Atlantis. We find all Europe occupied by nations recognized as Aryan."

Dream Telepathy and Out of Body Experience - ROBERT SEPEHR

Dream telepathy is the purported ability to communicate telepathically with another person while one is dreaming. The first person in modern times to document telepathic dreaming was Sigmund Freud. An out-of-body experience is an experience in which a person seems to perceive the world from a location outside their physical body. 

Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used to describe a willful out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an "astral body" that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe.

Scientists Detect Enormous Cavity Beneath Antarctica

In the space of only decades, the continent of Antarctica has lost trillions of tonnes of its ice cover at alarming rates, even in places we once thought were safe. 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 1000 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. Researchers say the cavity would once have been large enough to hold some 14 billion tonnes of ice. Even more disturbing, the researchers say it lost most of this ice volume over the last three years alone.

"We have suspected for years that Thwaites was not tightly attached to the bedrock beneath it," says glaciologist Eric Rignot from the University of California, Irvine, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. 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 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. "We are discovering different mechanisms of retreat," first author of the new paper, JPL radar scientist Pietro Milillo explains.

While researchers are still learning new things about the complex ways ice melts at the Thwaite Glacier, at its most basic, the giant cavity represents a simple (if unfortunate) scientific actuality.

"[The size of] a cavity under a glacier plays an important role in melting," Milillo says. As more heat and water get under the glacier, it melts faster."

That's important to know, since Thwaites currently accounts for about 4 percent of global sea level rise. If it were to disappear entirely, the ice held in the glacier could lift the ocean by an estimated about 2 ft. But that's not even the worst-case scenario. 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.

The findings are reported in Science Advances.
