Interesting article!

A Buddhist statue brought to Germany from Tibet by a Nazi-backed expedition has been confirmed as having an extraterrestrial origin.

A somewhat misleading headline.
In keeping with right speech...
It should be said that the mineral from which the image is carved is meteorite.
The fact that this mineral is "from space" is not unusual at all.
Show me something on Earth that isn't from space.
The whole planet is floating in space!!!
:alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien:
But it is a very cool artifact nonetheless.

Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

And the fact that something from Tibet was carved from meteoritic iron isn't at all unusual either. 'Sky Iron' is a legendary component of thogchags and ritual implements.

Strangely, the statue itself doesn't look particulary Tibetan. Seems to have more of a... Wagnerian thing going on.

It's a really interesting article and a beautiful statue. As for it not looking Tibetan, another article suggests that it's Mongolian in origin.

I was looking for the Butthole Surfers version but you can't beat the original!

there was an nazi occult myth that had UFOs coming out of a hidden base in antartica, and attack the southern hidden world of shambhala.

Isn't that where Conan the Barbarian is from?

I'm sure Arnold Schwarzeneger is from there (I mean his accent is a dead giveaway of his Hyperborean roots!) :tongue:

hyperborieas roots is in greek mythos i think, probably connected to apollo cults. The first Conan movie was very good.

Greg......what is best in life?

Hyperborea in Greek means "far North" now how the Nazis managed to locate it in Antarctica is well beyond me!

The clip is fantastic! :twothumbsup:

i got my artics mixed up....

the one in the north is the artic.

:alien:

hyperboriea is beyond where the north wind boriea starts.

Im not all that convinced of the idea of nazi occultism, it seems almost a new fascination within media conspiracy circles. i dont suggest there was not some nazi party members who were not into occultism, one has to only look at luminati bavarian germanic roots to know how these things intertwine.
i dont really know too much on such things. i do find the lesser key of solomon quite interesting though, it seems tibetan ritual has some simular patterns.

any way time to fly

I think it's a hoax.Most scientist assume it is.Not that it wasn't made from meteorite or whatever,just that the statue isn't that old.
A person once asked me why I would want to stop rebirth. "It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want to be reborn."
I replied. "Wanting to be reborn is like wanting to stay in a jail cell, when you have the chance to go free and experience the whole wide world. Does a convict, on being freed from his shabby, constricting, little cell, suddenly say "I really want to go back to jail and be put in a cell. It sounds pretty cool. Being able to come back. Who wouldn't want that?"

Aghartha or Asgartha is one of the names for the supposed hidden underground south pole city . Check out the book -"Hollow Earth: The Long and Curious History of Imagining Strange Lands, Fantastical Creatures, Advanced Civilizations, and Marvelous Machines Below the Earth's Surface" by David Standish. Really a fascinating read. He goes over the differnt theories from [pseudo]science to mythology on the hollow earth thing. There was actually a strange sort of cult here in the US called Koreshianity that thought the earth was hollow and was trying to get the US government to mount an expedition to the south pole. They weren't nazis though.

Resembles Tangtong Gyalpo, certainly a Tibetan 'Iron' man.

Conan is from Cimmeria. Hyperborea is a land to the north east of Cimmeria.
