5 Unexplained Discoveries

It is somewhat difficult and a bit troubling for some to live in a world where science can explain just about anything thrown at it. Science has such an accurate understanding of our environment and the world around us that it seems to easily explain anything that wonders into its path, but there have been discoveries that have baffled even the best scientific minds and perhaps provide evidence of alien life, new species, or other variety of the paranormal.

Baigong Pipes



In rural China, in a location that is considered to be uninhabitable to humans, there are three openings in Mount Baigong that contain hundreds of rustic iron pipes. Some of the pipes run deep into the mountain, others run to a nearby lake. There are more pipes in the lake bottom and there are pipes scattered along the shoreline. The pipes are cleanly cut and not jagged, so they appear to have had a use at one time. This all seems mundane: some pipes sticking out of the ground in China, but archeologists dated the pipes to a time when humanity was just getting familiar with fire, making casting iron impossible.



Some ufologists think that the pipes were part of some sort of UFO landing site or alien complex. They cite that the pipes contain silica, which is also found on Mars, as evidence, but it is important to note that silica can be found in lots of cast iron materials. What purpose did these pipes serve and who put them there? Many have simply written off the Baigong pipes as a hoax, but doing this ignores the fact that the iron pipes date back to over 5,000 years ago. My explanation is that the world of Super Mario existed at some point.

The Antikythera Mechanism



This ancient device has been dubbed the first “mechanical computer” by many archeologists and by all accounts, given our current understanding of human history, should not exist. It is a box that has a complex system of gears and utilizes knowledge and technology that should not have existed until the 18th century and yet it dates back to 100-150 BC. Scientists have reversed engineered the mechanism and have determined it was used as an astronomical analog calculator used to predict the positions of celestial bodies.

How did the ancient Greeks obtain this sort of knowledge and technology to build such an elaborate device? The theories range from knowledge from a long lost advanced civilization to knowledge gained from communication with extraterrestrials. I think that we have simply sold the Greeks short on what they were capable of. Here is why: you know those doors that open automatically as you walk toward them like the Enterprise had in Star Trek and every sci-fi movie space ship has, because in the future we don’t have time to open doors? The ancient Romans had those. It operated using steam and pressure. So the Romans could build that then the Greeks building this mechanical wonder does not seem out of the question to me.

The Baghdad Battery



When excavating a site in Iraq an archeological team discovered what they thought were clay pots. The archeologists further studied the pottery and discovered that there was a copper wire cemented into the bottom of the pot. The wire exhibited the telltale signs of acidic corrosion. This means that an acidic solution was probably put into the pot, which would interact with the copper wire and produce electricity. The pot appeared to be an ancient battery and when dated it predated the first battery by hundreds of years.

There is ancient art also found in the area that depicts what appears to be artificial light, but this is not uncommon to the ancient art of the area. Most experts have associated the light with God, but now many have began linking the pictures to the Baghdad Battery suggesting that ancient people had access to electricity. Others believe that ancient people did not have the knowledge to harness the batteries’ power to create an artificial light source and instead suggest the batters were used by healers and witch doctor types of the time to shock people as a sort of ancient magic show.

The Piri Reis map



The map was incredibly accurate for its time and it is interesting that it also depicts the mythical island of Antillia, which is said to be the location of cities made of gold. Many different theories about how a map from the 1500s is this accurate range from people suggesting we simply need to change our views on how well explored the world was during this time period to an ancient advanced civilization helped Reis create the map. I find it important to note that the map was drawn on the hide of a gazelle, so to me this explains everything. As we all know GPS’s are made from gazelle hide.

The Bloop

In 1997 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were recording the sounds of the ocean, not for like those crappy CDs some people buy to relax, but they dropped a high-powered recording device in the deep ocean to record the sounds of whale calls and other natural underwater activity. The NOAA picked up a bizarre and very strong low frequency sound they named “Bloop” because when it was sped up at 16 times the normal speed it made a sound similar to that of someone throwing a rock in the water, *bloop*.



They recorded the sound several times in 1997 then it stopped. What scientists determined was that its wave pattern was consistent with sounds that animals produce. So it was probably a whale right? Wrong! There is no known animal large enough to produce a noise that loud. In fact, the “bloop” was several times louder than the loudest known biological sound, which is produced by a blue whale. The good folks at the NOAA also ruled out the possibility of a bomb, submarine, or other man made noise as well as geological noises like volcanoes and earthquakes as the frequency did not match. In my mind that leaves only three possibilities to what made this incredible noise: 1) Cloverfield Monster; 2) Cthulhu ;or lastly some other large unknown deep-sea dwelling creature that could possibly all ready be known to cryptozoologists.

  1. on holistic channel there is a nice documentary about deciphering the antikythera thing

  2. Loved your article. Not only great fun but, again, points out how little we know.

  3. Stolen and reposted for the millionth time…

  4. The Bllop sound- Obviously, it could have been a huge bubble, coming from a hole or whatever, & also, it could have been something huge falling into the water & drifting down. Like a jumping whale. Ok, breaching whale. lol Or a diver close to the mic.
    *The Piri Reis Map- I thought it also showed Antartica without it's ice?

  5. Good list.

  6. This stuff is so cool..course I've seen most of it before but I read it over and over. Had the opportunity to read up on the Antikythera Mechanism. They did xrays and stuff on it..that thing is really cool.

  7. First time I ever read about those pipes in China, though.

  8. Skye, the bloop sound is sped up 16x, so the original recording wouldn't sound like that. It would be much longer and deeper. Also, the mic was set up very deep in the sea, any sound coming from the surface wouldn't be able to reach the mic since it's so far away.

  9. Interesting info… ever try NOT being such a smart ass though?

  10. Actually, water is a BETTER transmitter of sound than air is so it's entirely possible that the sound could reach the mic from the surface

  11. Everyone interested in this should watch a lecture posted on youtube called ancient technologies. very interesting stuff

  12. I'm pretty sure it said that they believed the sound to be from an animal cause of the sound wave pattern, just sayin

  15. just so you know the very important fact omitted in this list is that the “bloop” was recorded on multiple underwater recorders, which were thousand (yes thousands) of miles away from each other. also the noise in the video is what the “bloop” would sound like if it happened 16 times faster than it did. so its not a bubble or a diver, or a wale… Its Cthulu.

  16. Interesting list.

  17. Cthulhu will come and the world will shudder!
    'That is not dead which can eternal lie.
    And with strange aeons even death may die.'

  18. Kandy P. Blevins, noted forger of Tennessee, stole all the money her auntie had. May she rot in hell. (she's in prison where she belongs.)

  19. Re Piri Reis map: if Chinese, the peninsula on the right sure looks like Korea, missing Jeju-do (island) to the south.

  20. Yeah no kidding, chill. If it doesn't interest you DON'T read it! Just some snot nosed brat living with the folks and just looking for something to bitch about. Grow up, troll.

  21. I personally find the evidence above to very interesting I believe that things happen that we can not control or understand simply because of how little we actually know of the world we call home just because something can not be backed by scientific evidence does not mean it should be believed to be a lie nor a fake the human race is still young and maybe one day we will have the answers to the questions we so long to know but until then we continue to try and base facts off of what we believe to be true hope fully some day we will find what we are looking for

  22. Hey how do I subscribe to your site? The subscribe button on the top right hand corner doesn’t seem to work. Please help.

  23. The site is in process of transition on new url, so when that is done, everything will work fine. Sorry for that. I’ll let you know when we move on http://www.mysticfiles.com

  24. The computer can do more than an iPhone.
    Those batteries would charge one for about 5 minute.
    The map after that is still better than apple maps.

  25. Your theories about the possible sources are still all man made, ( cloverfield movie based off of “godzilla” comics fantasy, and man made religious myths- automatically thrown out) but it is interesting that scientists finally are aware (and taking this seriously that some of us “surface dwellers” are plagued by this noise) are researching this matter. Now if only they could/would connect the space noise theory with paranormal possibilities WITH this noise and noise pollution caused by overcrowded cities that legalize drugs(who are 90% of noise pollution/pollution problems) that would be absolutely fantastic!
