View Full Version : Australia, The Forgotten Continent

Lately I've been thinking, Australia is nearly the oldest continent in a geological time frame, i.e. it has the least geological upheaval of all the continents. It is also one of the richest continents in terms of mineral wealth.

So if we take for certain that there was a previous world civilisation, were are Australia's pyramids, were are Australia's ancient ruins. The only rumour of anything remotely close to a pyramid/ruin comes from the area around Gympie in Queensland.

The only other anomaly is Mungo Man, from lake Mungo in south western New South Wales.

Can anyone else add anything to this total lack of physical evidence of any pre 10,000 BC circa world civilisation existing in Australia, The Forgotten Continent.

i did have a thought like that a couple of years ago and the only answer i could get was if there was any ancient civilisations they would of been coastal so my best guess is underwater something like the japanese city underwater .

Plenty of evidence in Aboriginal myths. Plus there are American underground facilities in the centre for a reason and not the obvious ones. I agree there seems to be little if nothing of the old civilisations evidence wise, but are we really looking or waiting for it to drop in our laps. I am sure the history is there we just need to tune into it.... for instance there is documents setting out an incident with Captain Cook and native Aboriginals in the north meeting in an unfriendly situation which was totally diffused when certain masonic signs were recognised by both groups. The documents have been archived in the Grand lodge in NSW as well as UK.. now the question is How and why would an Aboriginal group firstly have masonic knowledge and secondly for what reason or use.

Dig deep in the shadows my friend and you will discover lots of nuggets so to speak.

If memory serves, there are supposedly some ancient pyramid ruins located underwater off the coast of Perth WA.

Don't quote me on that but I'm pretty sure I read something about it not too long ago on the internet somewhere.

I think there was even talk of an archaeological expedition being funded to uncover and study them.

Sorry, I'd run a Google search for the article but I'm typing this on my Iphone...

Here is a link to a a guy I actually met in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, everyone labelled him a crackpot, but when you actually got down to the nitty gritty his evidence was compelling to say the least, especially his anthropological evidence of a 7 or 8 foot + tribe of Aboriginals in the mountains since died out.

...Or maybe they just had a perfect life, so there really were no need for better? :)

Australia is a peculiar and interesting continent, with all It's endemic species, wich
also tells about the long isolation from other continents.

I't might bee that they'll
never met their "Quetzalcoatl"?

The masons know pagan stuff, the aboriginals knows the same pagan stuff, as all the stuff is same/has same origin. The most known is ofc the svastika.

Those "Pyrimids" are acturaly what is called a turcky nest. Its a damb dug out with a dozer with high banks in a square pattern near a bore. These dambs are empty. A good example of one with water in it is to the east near the sealed road.

I remember reading somewhere that Kata Juka (The Olgas) is apparently one of the planets chakras. I do know that standing in the middle of the valley of the winds I was overcome by an incredible feeling of peace. It also worries me that a lot of the ancient (sacred) knowledge of the elders is being lost each passing day for lack of suitable candidates to pass it to for safe keeping...

just to add...

There are also miles and miles of underground caves which explorers have barely had the chance to delve into due to extreme remotness...

Australia the Continent has many hidden secrets...

Australia is a very Spiritual place and many of its secrets can be unlocked within the Aboriginal Dreamtime...

http://m.thumbs.canstockphoto.com/canstock1678757.jpg

THE DREAMTIME

According to Aboriginal belief, all life as it is today - Human, Animal, Bird and Fish is part of one vast unchanging network of relationships which can be traced to the great spirit ancestors of the Dreamtime.

The Dreamtime continues as the "Dreaming" in the spiritual lives of aboriginal people today. The events of the ancient era of creation are enacted in ceremonies and danced in mime form. Song chant incessantly to the accompaniment of the didgeridoo or clap sticks relates the story of events of those early times and brings to the power of the dreaming to bear of life today.

THE SACRED WORLD

The Dreamtime is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, of it's creation, and it's great stories. The Dreamtime is the beginning of knowledge, from which came the laws of existence. For survival these laws must be observed.

The Dreaming world was the old time of the Ancestor Beings. They emerged from the earth at the time of the creation. Time began in the world the moment these supernatural beings were "born out of their own Eternity".

The Earth was a flat surface, in darkness. A dead, silent world. Unknown forms of life were asleep, below the surface of the land. Then the supernatural Ancestor Beings broke through the crust of the earth form below , with tumultuous force.

The sun rose out of the ground. The land received light for the first time.

Everything was created from the same source.

Everything was created in our Dreamtime.

As the world took shape and was filled with species and varieties of the ancestral tranformations, the ancestors tired and retired into

* the earth
* the sky
* the clouds
* and the creatures to live within all their created
* In our Dreamtime

Aboriginal Dreamtime Painting - Note: If you stare/gaze into this painting you can literally 'See the 'Eye' of the Dreamtime'.

http://aboriginalart.com.au/images/painting.jpg

The supernatural Beings, or Totemic Ancestors, resembled creatures or plants, and were half human. They moved across the barren surface of the world. They travelled hunted and fought, and changed the form of the land. In their journeys, they created the landscape, the mountains, the rivers, the trees, waterholes, plains and sandhills. They made the people themselves, who are descendants of the Dreamtime ancestors. They made the Ant, Grasshopper, Emu, Eagle, Crow, Parrot, Wallaby, Kangaroo, Lizard, Snake, and all food plants. They made the natural elements : Water, Air, Fire. They made all the celestial bodies : the Sun, the Moon and the Stars. Then, wearied from all their activity, the mythical creatures sank back into the earth and returned to their state of sleep.

Sometimes their spirits turned into rocks or trees or a part of the landscape. These became sacred places, to be seen only by initiated men. These sites had special qualities.

PHYSICAL WORLD - " OUR LAND OUR LIFE "

'We don't own the land, the land owns us'

'The Land is my mother, my mother is the land'

'Land is the starting point to where it all began. It is like picking up a piece of dirt and saying this is where I started and this is where I will go'

'The land is our food, our culture, our spirit and identity'

'We don't have boundaries like fences, as farmers do. We have spiritual connections'

Land means many things to many people. To a farmer, land is a means of production and the source of a way of life. It is economic sustainability. To a property developer, it is a bargaining chip and the means of financial progress and success. To many Australians, land is something they can own if they work hard enough and save enough money to buy it. To Indigenous people land is not just something that they can own or trade. Land has a spiritual value.

Yeah i recently found an extract from a book that talks about there being a pyramid similar in scale to the great pyramid deep under suburban perth. It was far too deep to excavate though...

This was at about the same time as WAs 150th anniversary. Funnily enough, the emblem for the 150th anniversary of WA was a stylised black swan which, when flipped upside-down, depicts the eye of horus..

Also, if you have a look at the layout of a lot of Perths' newer public buidings (especially around the "belltower" on the swan-river foreshore), one can see a fair bit of egyptian symbology....

My gut feeling is that the pyramid rumours are true and at least one section of the WA community knows it ;-)

Perth is also a very highly energetically charged place.....it is the closest city in the world to the 33rd parrallel.

Yes it is a good thing, Growing up in primary in Country NSW, the schools would have our field excursions consist of going to Aboriginal camps for a couple of days nights and learning/experience their side of things.
When moving to Sydney in my late primary school years, We didn't go to camps like that anymore but we were still taught about Dreamtime, Rituals and beliefs of the Aboriginals.

Another interesting fact read what you will into it but

Aborigines dont have B or AB blood types and are a select few races which fall into that category they include:

Navajo - Am Indian
Shompen (Nicobars) 100% O
Bororo 100% O
Peru (Indians) 100% O

Blackfoot (N. Am. Indian) only 1% are AB the rest of the population are like the top O an A.

Yes there is not much info at all on them or the story's of the ancient times.

The best bet would be to get the story from the Maralinga people, apparently there is a community of about 20-50 of them living in "Oak Valley".

Very ancient Egyptians lived in Australia (But the government wont admit it), page 1

Thought I would share with you an interesting Australian secret that even most Australians have not heard about.

Although the Australian government refuses to acknowledge anything different other than the history they have been lead to believe about British explorer Captain Cook and his expedition being the first recorded Europeans to have encountered the land, a very different history seems to refute this erroneous tale.

Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic inscriptions, statues, coins, pyramids and many other amazing discoveries have been found all around Australia over the years, and continue to do so.

Some of the discoveries found include:

An unusual set of rock carvings of 250 hieroglyphs telling the tale of early Egyptian explorers, injured and stranded, in ancient Australia.

An Egyptian sundisc was discovered in 1950 carved into a cliff. The carving featured the outline of a chariot, showing one of its wheels.

In 1965 a cache of hand forged Egyptian bronze, copper and iron tools plus pottery and coins dating back more than 2000 years were found.

A scarab beetle carved from onyx was dug up near the Neapean River outside Penrith (NSW). Also at Penrith a 50 foot stepped pyramid exists.

An Amber-glass obelisk-shaped pin, inscribed with Egyptian characters found in a field by John Whitehouse in 1983. It is said to be 5000 years old.

Toowoomba: A group of seventeen granite stones were found with Phoenecian inscriptians. One had been translated to read "Guard the shrine of Yahweh¼s message" and "Gods of Gods". Another inscription reads, "This is a place of worship or Ra" and "Assemble here to worship the sun." (Ra was the Egyptian sun god).

The list goes on......

What a sad world we live in sometimes when things like this go unanswered as to not upset what has already been embedded as historical fact.

I was remembering recently a journey to the outback (desert) when I was very young, maybe 10yrs old. One place we visited was called 'The Devil's marbles', and I remember it had an eerie, dark energy if you sat under these rocks and a reptilian sort of vibe.

I find it hard to believe that rocks could erode naturally like this. I had a bit of a hunt around to see if I could find anything in aboriginality on the web about this country and there seems to be precious little.

There was this from the aboriginal elder that is the keeper of this place


Karlu Karlu is what all the Warramungu people call it and Kaytetye call it Iniparantu. Iniparantu means that hair string. You know when all the young men wear it.

That's why all these boulders came up. That's why they came up when Araranjji was making it, when he was making them with that stick. He had a stick like that, then another one this way and another one this way, this way and this way. He was rolling it. They became the shape of a football. That's how Araranjii made them.

He was in the Dreamtime, he rolled it like that in the Dreamtime. In the Dreamtime, he rolled and rolled until it was round like a football. That's why these rocks are all round. Some of them are rough and some of them are round ones. These rocks came up out of the ground.

He was making that hair belt with the spindle. He said, "What am I going to do now? Where am I going to go?" He was looking for a place where he was going to settle down.

Araranjji was a traveller. He was standing with a woomera, looking to where he could go. He came from north. He travelled a long way to this place. He was rolling that hair string belt with the spindle. He came north from Mosquito Creek. He walked everywhere.

He is big too. He will frighten you. If you get close, he is a giant man. He came from north.

There is one place that you can see where he stopped from water. You can see where he placed his knees and hands. You can see where he kneeled down by the water. You can see these, this one and this one, where he drank water at Mosquito Creek.

He was coming in this way to sit down and eat. He was eating all the people. He was catching them, killing them and eating them like meat. He wasn't eating grass. He ate people like us. To him, people were like kangaroos. He wasn't a person that ate kangaroos, he ate humans. Araranjii was eating people. When he was hungry and because he didn't eat any other meat, he would eat blackfellas. He would look. "Hey. Hey, someone is camping here. Which way did they go?" Well, he followed their tracks, he tracked them down. When he found them, he speared them. He ate all of them, that was his meat.

We eat kangaroos today. Our meat is kangaroo now but Araranjii ate anything. He ate people like us.

Araranjii was a human being. He was a person like you and me. He was a person, not a spirit. He wasn't a spirit, he was a black man like us.

A policeman ran into that rock. Not this rock here but one on the other side. This rock wasn't over there. It was here, here where it is now. I've seen that rock. They took it away because it killed that policeman. They took that rock like a prisoner. But they took it for nothing. They just took it to another country. It wasn't actually a prisoner, they just took it for that doctor. They took it for Flynn's grave, then. But they handed it over to me.

Interesting that their story is pitched to children aged 10-14, yet as the blurb says adults need to hear it as well.

Reminds me of Patricia Wrightson, who died last year. She wrote many books (mainly for teens) that dealt with Aboriginal dreamtime stories, but made accessible for western readers
