The theory of Z
February 25, 2009 3:51 PM   Subscribe

Percy Harrison Fawcett disappeared in the Amazon in 1925 whilst searching for the City of Z. Some believe that he is alive and well and living in a subterranean world with Extra-/Intra-Terrestrials.

It happens in a collision of local energy of the Portal with an aura of Sensitivity, the physical body undergoes a vibrational impact. Specific glands enter in an accelerated action, segregating thus organ-chemical elements that run through specific channels, reaching the brain, refining themselves through the nose and reaching the brain and the pineal, which ends up in wakening the emotion, thus reaching the Portal of the Soul.

Makes sense to me.

In what I find the strangest combination of brilliantly scientific and absolutely batshitinsane, tullurian has completely flipped my mind.

Sometimes it's just nice to have a mystery solved-- to discover an answer that, immediately, you feel in your gut to be true.

It is one of life's small but precious rewards.

Do all detect them?

All human beings of physics-economy constitution with the major adherence of atoms (the sensitive ones)


So I'm not of physics-economy constitution with the major adherence of atoms (the sensitive ones)? How do I break this to my mother?

Is this a promo for the new "Land of the Lost" movie?

Some insane whackos believe that he is alive and well and living in a subterranean world...

The "Stonehenge of the Amazon" mention got my attention. It's not exactly the 'astronomical observatory tower made of huge granite rocks' the author describes, but still really cool. These folks took some nice snapshots back in 2006, when the discovery broke.

Brad Pitt has bought the film rights to The Lost City of Z.

The Staub family sounds like people I would want to meet. They were not missionaries. I love the line from Luke.

I don't think I've ever run into the word "intraterrestrial" before.

This sounds like "Phantom Empire". (Which I saw on TV when I was a kid, and it was awesome!)

I want to go to there!

That Amazonian Stonehenge look pretty cool and weird in a completely differentt way to Stonehenge.

The David Grann article from the Boston Globe is fascinating -- it seems Fawcett really knew what he was talking about, and nobody believed him. The next few years should be very interesting as archaeologists discover more about the Amazonian civilization. I hope they also find what happened to Fawcett.

I agree Kraft, the article written by the non bci people was very interesting.

I read a book called, I think, Expedition Fawcett when I was ten, and I read it more than once. In the same year I read Apsley Cherry-Garrard's The Worst Journey in the World.

By Crikey, those two were a dose of the scares.

futility closet: Brad Pitt has bought the film rights to The Lost City of Z.

I can only hope it is as historically accurate as Troy.

Oh, look! He'll be doing a rendition of the Odyssey as well! What a trifecta of KILL ME NOW!.

History will look back on us and our film adaptations and be very, very glad we are in the ground.

Some are wrong.

Harrison Ford also got seriously lost in a similar plot only last year.

Which makes me think: wasn't the Crystal Skull's "Professor Oxley" more than a little inspired by Fawcett?

If you're down with Z, well then you're down with me.

They better watch out for the lava men on their way to meet Lord Kinbote.

Oddly enough, I've just recently started rewatching The Mysterious Cities of Gold. And I found out a few days after I started that they're starting the series up again, as well as producing a movie!

I just finished reading the book. It's great.

SPOILER ALERT!

Percy H. Fawcett is probably dead.
