The Hollow Earth Myth

The Hollow Earth Myth


I’ve been hearing the stories and theories about a hollow earth since I was a child. How can anyone in our modern technological age believe this is literally true? It does, however, make for a fascinating myth. I had a great time reading Jules Verne’s Journey To The Center Of The Earth many years ago. My imagination was kept quite occupied while I made my own journey to the center of the earth.

According to hollow-earth theorists, the earth is, you guessed it, hollow, with the crust being only about eight hundred miles thick. There are, supposedly, two openings, one at either pole. At the center of this crazy, mixed-up world, is not a molten core, but an “inner sun.”

Therefore, there exists three worlds on our planet, the outer surface, where we live, the middle earth which purportedly is lined with many caverns, tunnels (made by someone), Inner Cities and people who live there and lastly the Inner Surface. How Gravity works then is the following. For the people who live on the outer surface, Gravity holds them down. For the people that live in the middle earth, the closer they get to the center of the crust (i.e. – 400 miles down), the less effect gravity will have upon them. In the book, “Etidorhpa”, when this individual traveling down into the earth reached the center of gravity, i.e. where there is no gravity — he was able to move by the power of his mind, his heart stop beating and he didn’t need to eat. He described gigantic vegetation that lives under the earth as this lesser pull of gravity allows things to grow larger. Lastly for the people who live on the inner surface, they would also feel gravity pull on them to walk on this surface but since there is an inner sun (called the “Atoma”, by channeler Michael Kant who appears in our crystal skull book Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed) they would have sunlight 24 hours a day. There is supposedly land masses and water bodies that exist on the Inner Earth, the same as the outer surface except the vibration and energy in the Inner Earth is more pure and of a higher vibrational frequency (some say a 4th dimensional frequency) (from The Hollow Earth – Fact Or Fiction).

I’m looking at this metaphorically, using a Corbin-esque hermeneutic. Of course, this is pure myth. It sounds like another descent to the underworld tale, similar to Dante’s Inferno. It’s interesting that there is this inner sun called Atoma. Could this be a reference to the Atman of Hinduism, the daimon of the Greeks, and the Self of Jungian thought? There are many other names for such an “inner truth.” It’s interesting also that they chose the feminine form of the Latin word for atom (atoma) as the name of the “inner sun.”

Just as Dante’s descent was an inner journey through the depths of the soul, so is this. This strikes me as a strictly Apollonian vision, however. The sun gives light twenty-four hours a day! There is no place in this saga for Dionysus (or Hades, his brother), which is unusual with myths of descent. And this is an “Inner Utopia,” which is strange because it’s too one-sided. Everything is magical and seemingly perfect. There must be some huge monsters lurking in the “gigantic vegetation,” that flourishes due to the diminished gravity. Even Jules Verne had a couple of sea monsters in his story.

All in all, this is a fantastic tale. Of course, it’s got something to do with aliens. Doesn’t every good story nowadays? Read the article I have linked above. It will blow your mind. The accompanying drawing looks a lot like a mandala.
