During the weekend we spent some time on the “Eye of the Dragon” in the Montserrat Mountain. Here the Camino from Catalunia to Aragon continues. “Was the real secret in the west?” the master asked, in Irland or America? What do you think?” “It´s in the heart, isn´t it,” I answered. “That is easy to say, ” the master said. “It´s surrender. Until we are finally ready to invite Christ into our space and let him lead the way, we are separated from God and everything. And nothing can help that.”

Editor’s Intro: The templars left no written documents testifying to their beliefs–at least none that have been allowed to survive. Jeff Nisbet has found one carved in stone.
In the pre-dawn hours of Friday, the 13th of October, 1307, King Phillip “the Fair” of France, with the full knowledge and blessing of his lackey in Rome, Pope Clement V, attempted to round up and exterminate the then 200-year-old chivalric order of warrior monks known as the Knights Templar. The barbarity of the methods subsequently used to extract confessions to such charges as heresy, blasphemy, sorcery and sodomy, has become the stuff of legend, and Friday the 13th has been considered unlucky ever since.
The fact that Phillip owed the order a small fortune has given mainstream historians a creditable-enough reason for his actions, if not his excesses. But according to a line of speculative reasoning which has become more popular since the 1982 publication of the ever-controversial The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, there was perhaps another reason.
It is now thought by many that the Templars had uncovered evidence that Jesus Christ, contrary to church dogma, had not been born of a virgin, had not died on the cross, had not risen from the dead, and had not ascended bodily into heaven, but in fact had sired children with a wife, the much-maligned Mary Magdalen, thereby establishing a “holy bloodline” that would beget and begat its way over the centuries through some of the highest and mightiest families of Europe, and is begatting still.
But Phillip’s pre-dawn raid was not a complete success. It’s thought that a fair number of Templars may have tumbled to the plot and sailed away, with their treasure and their truth, to Bonnie Scotland, scoring great points with King Robert the Bruce by helping win the day against the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, the same year that Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay was slow-roasted to death on an island in the River Seine.
And so, outlawed throughout the rest of Europe, the Templars had found a sanctuary of sorts in Fair Caledonia, and are thought to have been absorbed, and thereby concealed for safety’s sake into a similar chivalric brotherhood–the Knights Hospitaller–an order that still remained in the good graces of Rome.
No Templar document has ever been found which testifies to a belief in that “holy bloodline.” And who can blame them, given their history, for not putting pen to parchment?
They did, however, inscribe that belief in code, on a fairly large stone high atop a decrepit, roofless church in the tiny Midlothian village of Temple–ancient headquarters of the Knights Templar in Scotland–and it is there, on Aug. 5, 1999, that I showed up.
I was visiting a good friend of mine in the area, who pointed the stone out to me and told me the inscription had never been deciphered. That was all I needed. I shot the photographs that accompany this article and, after returning to the US, put my thinking cap on.
The inscription on the East side of the stone consists of two lines: VÆSAC and MIHM. The second line has been “justified” to make it the same width as the first. On the North side the letters RI have been added, but with less care, in a different hand, and probably at a later date.
Bearing in mind that there were no letters U and J in classical Latin (V and I were used instead), my translation is as follows:
VÆSAC is an anagram of the Latin word CAVSÆ, or “Cause.” What that cause was is revealed in MIHM, which is an anagram of an acronym, and which translates as the Heirs of Mary Magdalen and Jesus.
If my translation of the inscription proves to be correct, as I believe it eventually will, the Templars’ cause, their raison d’etre, as implied by several books written within the last 20 years, was to protect the heirs of Jesus and Mary Magdalen.
The letters RI were a bit more problematic. Although it took me a while, their proximity to VÆSAC eventually led me to believe that they were meant to be introduced into the general mix, creating the letter string VÆSACRIMIHM. This string revealed a second code, embedded in the first, which related to yet another Templar legend–that Henry Sinclair of Orkney, grandfather of the man who built Rosslyn Chapel, made a voyage of discovery to North America in 1396, 96 years before Christopher Columbus is historically credited with that feat.
As I pondered the inscription the word AMERICA suddenly jumped out at me, leaving the letters VSIHM. Just like the second line of the first code, these letters proved also to be an anagram of an acronym. That acronym stands for Henry Sinclair Made 1st (or “one”) Voyage, or “I, Henry Sinclair, Made Voyage”. Amazingly, the letters MIV are perhaps yet a third embedded code–acceptable crypto-shorthand for 14th Century. Whoever added the RI was leaving little to chance!
[Note: There is actually yet a fourth code embedded in the inscription which, due to space considerations, I cut from my original article. I include it here. VÆSAC plus RI deciphers as SACRE VIA, or “Sacred Way.” It’s my opinion that the inscribed stone at Temple lay along a path of initiation for those who, over time, were initiated into the “higher mysteries” of the Templars. When that path fell into disuse, or if indeed it ever did, is open for debate.]
My translation of VÆSAC MIHM has been called “very ingenious” and “very persuasive” by an eminent Scottish archaeologist. I have since written three applications to Historic Scotland, the government department that protects the property, for permission to conduct an inexpensive and minimally invasive on-site investigation, and have been turned down. HS has accused me of playing a “pleasurable game of anagrams” which, it says, is “no substitute for methodical research,” and that “without clear evidence” of the existence in Scotland of a “cult of Mary Magdalen as the bride of Christ,” my reasoning, “while interesting, cannot be regarded as having any basis in fact.” My argument that perhaps the inscription may be that clear evidence has so far fallen on deaf ears.
Meanwhile, HS plans to sink a bundle into making Urquhart Castle a more tourist-friendly and all-inclusive lookout perch for the Loch Ness Monster. There’s enough “clear evidence” for Nessie, I guess!
So what should all this mean to us, and why should it matter?
Briefly put: If the Templar legends of a holy bloodline and Henry Sinclair’s voyage of discovery eventually prove to be true, then world history as it has been presented to us must be radically altered. If these legends prove not to be true, yet have been believed to be true down through the ages by a privileged and influential few, then perhaps the course of history has already been altered, in ways we can only guess at. Either way, the inscription on the Temple stone deserves a closer look.
I’ll be returning to Scotland later this year, and will spend a few hours in Temple. Once again I will look up at the inscription, and wonder. But I mustn’t touch. Touching has been strictly forbidden

TOO EARLY FOR AMERICA
Here is an interesting letter-to-the-editor Fortean Times ran (UK Aug. 2001, US Sept.).
It is followed by an Editor’s Note, which is followed by my response:
“With regard to the article by Jeff Nisbet, ‘Reader of the Lost Stone’ [FT 146:47], is this meant to be a leg-pull, perhaps?
There seems to be some confusion in the rendering of the Latin ‘inscription’ væsacrimihm. While there could, just conceivably, be a chronogram in that inscription, it beggars belief that the author could have made the word America from this if he claims the inscription is 14th-century in date.
Had the author looked up in any reference book the derivation of the name America, he would have found that the name appears on no map, printed or manuscript, prior to the great 12-sheet xylographic map printed in 1507 by Martin Waldseemüller, on which the New World was named in honour of the voyager Amerigo Vespucci, Pilot Major to the Casa de Contratación, the Spanish clearing house for all overseas voyages at Seville. On this map, the name America appears in what we now call Brazil. Waldseemüller’s map is generally held to have been printed at Strasburg in an edition of 1,000 copies, only one of which is known to have survived, at Schloss Wolfegg in Germany. Or is Mr. Nisbet recording an early example of time-travel!”
—JJS Goss, MA, FRGS, Bletchley, Buckinghamshire
Besides the Vespucci hypothesis, the Oxford Gazetteer offers an alternative origin for the name America: “Another suggestion is that it was named after a Bristol merchant, Richard Ameryk (or Amerik), who is said to have invested in Cabot’s second voyage. As a customs collecter he paid Cabot his pension of 20 pounds, but whether his name was used for the new land is a matter of speculation.”
Although there are at least two theories about the origin of the word “America” that we were not taught in primary school, I will not argue them here. But I will say this:
Nowhere in my article do I write that the inscription on the stone at Temple is contemporary with the original building. On the contrary, I specifically state that the letters RI (without which the word “America” cannot be found) appear to have been added at a later date. When that date was, I do not know, but the belfry was rebuilt in the late 17th or early 18th centuries. It is unclear whether or not the inscribed stone was part of that rebuilding, or whether it was incorporated from the earlier structure.
I do, however, attribute the original inscription to the Knights Templar–an order that standard references tell us was dissolved in 1307. I have good reasons to believe (and I am far from alone in this) that the Templars continued to exist for many years after the 1307 dissolution of the order, and so the letters RI could certainly have been inscribed after Amerigo managed to get his name on Waldseemüller’s 1507 map.
It’s interesting to note, however, that Waldseemüller’s later maps of 1513 and 1516 do not include the name–and we are free to wonder why. It’s also interesting to note that a sole-surviving map out of an edition of 1,000 (a large press run at that early date) is certainly suggestive of something, if not conclusive of much. Finally, it’s interesting to note that the 1507 map was produced under the patronage of Duke Renaud II of Lorraine who, as titular “King of Jerusalem,” may possibly have had some binding “family” reasons for attempting to conceal a prior origin of the word.
Time will no doubt tell. But until Historic Scotland agrees to climb up the east wall of the ruined church at Temple and take a closer and more open-minded look, I will continue to wonder, and point, from below. I’d appreciate some company!
[Note about the map (not included in my reply): I recently read that Waldseemüller’s 1507 map has been purchased by the US Library of Congress for $5 million. According to the article I read, it will be the “crown jewel” of its map collection.]
Since the publication of my article in Fortean Times, I have periodically searched “VAESAC MIHM” (without the Æ ligature) on various internet search engines just to see if my findings had generated any kind of buzz on the world wide web. I never got a “hit” until 26 August 2001. The “Temple, Midlothian” page of the Gazetteer for Scotland website (a page I had visited several times while researching my article) had recently added the following:
“The old parish church may date back to the 12th C., but is more likely built by the Knights of St. John [Kinights Hospitaller] soon after they succeeded the Templars in 1312. The inscription VAESAC MIHM on the gable-end tends to confirm this. It has been translated as Vienne Sacrum Concilium Militibus Johannis Hierosolymitani Melitensibus or ‘The Sacred Council of Vienne, to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and Malta”. http://www.mythomorph.com
If one “thing” could save you it would be Drunvalo´s Sun Ring on your chest!
is a New Way of Perceiving Reality
“This Quantum discovery will eventually be found to be essential to every single human endeavor,
including our ability to move in space, time, dimension, and relative size as we explore the universe.” – Drunvalo Melchizedek This is unique world wide and at the cutting edge of human future! Go to the Shop here: We have learned to take the absolute essence of our Sun, not just its sunlight, but all that our Sun is (in science it is called “waveform”), and Quantum Infuse this ‘Sun’ waveform with about 100,000 volts of electricity inside of certain organic essence oils, specific natural crystals, and certain minerals. Once your body touches these substances, instantaneously this essence of our Sun reaches every part of your body and, if you are wearing a particular iron pendant, it will extend into the bio-magnetic energy field around your body in the shape of a torus about sixty feet in diameter.
We find it interesting that non-meditators, when they touch one of these substances, most will not feel anything, though almost everyone’s body has been dramatically changed (see Technology). Yet almost all meditators who are aware of their inner space as well as their outer space of the universe, do feel this instantaneous transformation. I am convinced that no matter what your form or formlessness of your meditation is, these natural products will give you clarity and focus to go deeper into your meditation, and further, it will give you energy and endurance to withstand long meditations.
We have not found a single Chinese Chi Gong master who needs these products! By their meditation, they are already infused by our Sun’s waveform and use the energy of the Sun as Chi or “life force energy” within their bodies. Like Chi Gong, this is also the ultimate purpose of our business: to find a way to reach this consciousness state that these Quantum Infused natural products give us, without their presence on our bodies. In other words, just do it. Learn the waveform!WAVEFORM
Okay, what is a waveform? This word was made up in the early 1990’s to explain a way of perceiving Reality (a theory) where everything that exists has a specific waveform pattern, and if this energy pattern were duplicated, the waveform would recreate an identical original source. If you were looking at a glass of water on a table, and if you could duplicate its electro-magnetic waveform, you would instantaneously have another glass of water, with the exact same number of atoms of water and of the glass. It would be literally identical. And in nature and in our body, this is important; it would be accepted as real and natural, not synthetic.
A waveform is also similar to a Sine (Co-sine) wave signature in math, except it is vastly more complex. The basic shape of the Sine wave signature’s frequency and amplitude would be upheld, but it would change from 2 dimensions to 3 and on this new level the shape of the waveform would be constantly changing, and, like a 3D mountain range, instead of a simple 2D curving line, we would see huge rocks, trees, canyons, etc., changing its surface on a microscopic level.
And on top of this kind of ridiculous complexity, the electro-magnetic waveform itself, in order to be digitally recreated, has to be within one millionth of one cycle of accuracy. That is what the math shows, and it turns out to be true. It has to be perfect or at least very near perfect. If it is not perfect, then you have created something else or nothing, but not what one is trying to duplicate. This science was impossible until computers became fast enough. Custom computers reached this in about 1995, as I understand it.
I’m Drunvalo Melchizedek, and I have been studying Quantum Physics, and Tesla’s math for about 45 years, and recognized immediately the power of this oil. I believe that something about Quantum physics has been discovered that no one has ever seen before, not even Tesla.I also believe this Quantum discovery will eventually be found to be essential to every single human endeavor, including our ability to move in space, time, dimension, and relative size as we explore the universe. And from my direct experience in meditation and Mer-Ka-Ba science, thisdiscovery will equally assist those who are exploring the universe from within their meditation, and could even assist someone to the point of Self-Realization.

How Lee Arison Vaintrub Rediscovered & Redefined Quantum Infusion
In 2005, Lee Arison Vaintrub, the owner of a high-end jewelry store in Sedona, Arizona, was introduced to Zero Point pendants infused with various frequencies and asked to design a frame around it. During the initial meeting, the client did a simple kinesiology test on Lee with amazing results. Being an athlete all his life, Lee has never felt this kind of instant shift of energy and strength. This remarkable experience with Zero Point products profoundly changed his direction in life. Through his personal exploration of these products and discovering the various effects on the human body, he realized the importance of quantum technology. From that realization he began pursuing the dream of creating an ultimate energy infusion for natural crystals, minerals and essential oils by designing and building his own Quantum Generator.
After years of successful experiments and creating a first series of quantum infused products, Lee sent one of his infused stones to his father in-law in Russia, Dr. Alexander Suvorov, who works with the Russian Space Program. Suvorov is currently a leading researcher for the development of the “Mars 500″ Project, an international group of astronauts training for a mission to Mars. As a scientist in the Russian space program, Alexander has access to some of the best testing equipment in the world. Lee asked Alexander to perform field tests to find a way to determine any difference between infused and non-infused stones. Dr. Suvorov tested numerous colleagues and astronauts with overwhelming results. After two years of parallel testing and field research, he finally found a technological approach which could clearly indicate distinct differences between blank placebo stones and LifeSource (now Flower of Sunlight) quantum infused stones.
Dr. Suvorov reported that the LifeSource quantum infused stones have distinguishable electromagnetic polarities but he could not explain why a human body reacts to the infused stones this way. He said that there must be more tests and studies done to understand this phenomenon of how the technology works and why people are having such profound results with it.
Today, LifeSource is now called Flower of Sunlight, LLC and is continually creating new and more advanced quantum technologies that benefit energy structures of the human body as well as developing new tests that can explain this remarkable technology and amazing benefits. Flower of Sunlight products are now being tested by the global medical community to understand how and why the human body reacts so powerfully to the waveform of our Sun.Testimonials: Grant Link, Phoenix
I am an NCAA Athlete. I go to Lake Superior State University and play Tennis on scholarship. Working out has been a passion of mine and necessary for Tennis for about the past 2 years. Since I first started, I have made significant improvements on my Personal Records (PR) as well as improving my overall physical fitness.My father introduced me to the stone and oil, since he has been using it just to improve his overall wellness and health. He informed me that people have seen increased results in the gym using the oil and stone. I told him that I would try it with my workouts and see if it has the same result. The first day I tried using just the oil, and I was doing an interval/cardio workout. The majority of the workout was 30 seconds of intense exercise then 30 seconds of rest with a rotation of 3 exercises and a total of 5 rotations. So the complete workout you do as many reps as possible within the 15 minutes. This was my first time doing an intense cardio workout in about a month (I was mostly lifting weights before this day). Usually my body would become very fatigued and I would be very out of breath by the end of the workout. When it came to the last rotation I found that my muscles were not near as fatigued as normal. I was also much more motivated and driven to get those few extra reps, and it wasn’t until afterwards that I realized it was because of the oil. I didn’t have much hard evidence to back my findings besides how I was feeling, so I decided that I would try the oil and the stone for my next workout.The next day involved heavy front squats with 5 sets of 2-4 reps (increasing in weight per set). This was a perfect opportunity to put hard evidence to back my findings from the day before. I knew my 2-rep max was 185 lb from doing the same lift about 3 weeks before. I started light and slowly built up. On my fourth set I put 195 lb on the bar (10 pounds HIGHER than my previous max) and I gutted out 4 reps, this increased my weight and amount of reps. That was nothing out of the ordinary as 10 pound jumps are fairly normal, but my next set I decided to knock it out of the park by going to 225 lb. I thought that there was no way that I could even get one. I ended up getting 2 complete reps and dropping the third. This ended up to be a 20% increase in weight in 3 weeks. On my dead-lift this summer, I have gone from 355 to 385. This is only a 10% increase and it has taken my 2 MONTHS to achieve.I still don’t know how the stone and the oil work, but I do know that this is solid proof that it does, in fact, work. This oil and stone, during high intensity workouts, has helped improve my strength, cardio capacity, and focus all at the same time. These results have occurred with no change in diet or lifestyle. All I did was throw on the oil and stone one day and recorded what my findings were. I will continue to use the oil when I workout and the stone while lift.The only downfall to the stone necklace is that it can jumble around during exercises that require a lot of motion, but I will see if I could use an ace wrap and wrap it somewhere on the body. I think this would help a lot with increased skin contact with the stone since it will prevent it from bouncing around. Overall these are great products, whether you are using it for sports/exercise or just overall personal wellness, this can bring positive affects to all areas of your life. All you have to do is try it. Julie, Carlsbad
“I was lucky enough to come across LifeSource in Carlsbad, CA. When I was first told about the product, i wasn’t sure what to believe and I was a little skeptical. However, once they showed me how it worked I was amazed. The first words out of my mouth was – “This is crazy”!!! I had more energy and was stronger when I used LifeSource products. I felt like I could go through out my day and not crash before 2pm. Now I use LifeSource everyday and I feel better than ever. I don’t think I could ever go another day without using LifeSource! Thank you so much!!!”Keith Griffiths, Sedona
I first met Lee at his jewelery store in Arizona and ended up doing several business transactions and having numerous friendly meetings with him before he introduced me to LifeSource. 1st off what struck me about this guy was how fair and generous he is in business and as a human being. Being a very active 50 years old who has put his body through a lot over the years (working construction, racing dirt bikes, competing at a national level racing jet skis and riding mountain bikes for over 25 years) with lots of cuts, scrapes, breaks and bruises along the way, I have to say I was very very skeptical about using a pendant or oil to make me feel more balanced, have less aches and more energy, but here’s the ‘weird thing’ – this products do just that. 15 months ago I opted to have shoulder surgery (subacromial decompression) due to numerous injuries sustained over the years and having to deal with a healthy dose of pain. After several months of rehab, having a shoulder that felt and worked better, but none the less, still painful especially when mountain biking, I thought that’s just the way it’s going to be and that I would just have to suck it up, anyway after a few days of wearing a 400 series pendant I noticed that the pain had all gone, I also notice that I generally feel more centered and have good energy and strength when working out and exercising.Sean Cooke, Cooke’s Computer Service, Sedona, AZ
”Having worked with computers for many years and currently owning a pc service and repair company, I am well aware of the “computer burnout” one can experience spending long periods of time at a pc; strained eyes, headaches, etc. I have seen various products that are supposed to block EM [electromagnetic] frequencies that are produced by electronic equipment, but have remained skeptical and never have seen anything easily portable, usually tabs you have to stick to mouse, monitor and such. When Lee, one of my clients, introduced me to his product, I was understandably skeptical. He demonstrated the item for me with muscle testing that was indeed impressive, but I remained skeptical. He offered to let me try and return it if no effect was felt, so I agreed. Wearing the pendant I noticed an immediate and profound difference in my reaction to the hours spent daily on pc’s. I experience much less fatigue and no headaches. I think every computer user should have one of these. An added bonus is the appearance as it is an attractive piece of neck-wear and suits me well.”Clay Moore & Jean Capalbo, Sedona, AZ
“It’s subtle, I have an overall sense of well being, stronger, my afternoons are better and I have just as much energy in the afternoon as I did in the morning” “It is subtle; I definitely have more energy and sustainability. I don’t get as tired when I’m gardening, which I love!”Carolyn Reynolds, New Age Author, Sedona, AZ
“I love my necklace. For the first few hours after I wore it I felt more aware. I wore it two weeks when I had proof positive of its healing power. I had left my wedding ring to be sized with Lee the day I got the necklace. My “arthritic” knuckles had increased my ring size to 7. When I went back to pick up my ring it didn’t fit. It was too large. My new ring size was 5.5. I couldn’t believe my eyes and neither could Lee at first. We both double checked the order and then I remembered. The necklace!” Mother & Son, Sedona, AZ
“I can not believe he is doing his homework and his grades are better!” “I’m really excited, I can actually concentrate better, I’m whizzing through my homework, my grades are better. I am telling all my friends to get one!” Charles R. Courtney PhD – Findings: Positive for noticeable effect on wearers.
“I had been experiencing extreme fatigue as the result of radiation [treatment]. I started wearing the amulet immediately, and in the following days I was aware of a distinct lessening of fatigue. In other words, it worked.”Dr. Valerie Olmsted, NY
“A pilot study was conducted with 12 professional MMA fighters, over three days. While not all study participants attended for all three days, the ones who did showed a noticeable improvement in recovery time for workouts when wearing the stones that had the frequency infused. Measurements included blood pressure, pulse, respiration, pulse oximetry and grip analysis. Satisfaction with life surveys were also done, with noted improvement in mood and overall attitude on the participants wearing the stone.”Andrew Lemmert, Netherlands
“I wanted to tell you that I really enjoy the pendant and that I just ordered a level 2 version..! The pendant definitely makes me feel better and more vibrant like a child. My senses are sharper and my skin is more sensitive. I learn faster and memorize easier (I’m studying again so this helps alot). I recover more quickly from exercise (which includes catching the train) and sleep like a baby. I feel more positive and happier… I’m not sure if I ever want to take it off; i.e. not until the new one gets here. My appetite and metabolism went up big time in the first couple of days, then it settled down to some new balance. Undoubtedly, the pendant stimulates regeneration and growth, which are essential to life. This kind of technology really shows the progress mankind should be making. I can imagine the people of Atlantis and other ancients using this same kind of technology to better themselves and understand the Universe. Thank you! Keep up the good work!”Gary Hunsicker, Sedona, AZ
“On December 8th, 2008 I was muscle tested by Lee with a pendant. When I experienced a profound shift in my balance and strength, I just stared at the pendant wondering how a hematite stone could cause that to happen. After a few hours of wearing the pendant for the first time I noticed some extremely subtle things. One was how much clearer I was thinking! Over the next few days of hardly taking the pendant off, I noticed how much better I was feeling, and I know that this may sound crazy but I was experiencing a huge improvement in my spelling of words! What a trip! Now, after having experience with the wearing of this technology for about a year and a half and experimenting with this technology in the garden, I am just so grateful for Lee and that he did that muscle test on me! In the garden in the summer and fall of 2009 I grew a tomato plant, using this technology, that was so huge and had 100′s of tomatoes on it that many of my friends thought it was a tree! Amazing technology!” “I have noticed after wearing this stone I don’t get tired throughout the day, I won’t leave home without it now.” – Amie Schold, NY“I have had a bad back for a long time, I noticed after wearing the stone it has made me stronger, and my back feels way better.” – Bill Gerber, NY
“I have MS and I noticed wearing the stone has given me more energy and balance.” – Phil Brooks, NY

An Argentine foundation is studying the relationship between the rocky plateau known as the Fort and the Knight Templars’ alleged adventures in the American continent with the secret mission of protecting the Holy Grail. A believe-it-or-not story.
At 41º South latitude and 65º West longitude, in the Province of Río Negro, within San Matías Gulf, around 15 km from San Antonio Oeste and near Las Grutas beach resort, there lies the Argentine Fort, as we call it nowadays. I say “nowadays” because in the past it was known as the Abandoned Fort. The question is, in the past, it may have been one of the Cities of Caesars built by the Templars to safeguard their most precious treasure…
The Fort is a rock formation that possesses very special characteristics —it is a great coastal plateau that reaches 153 meters above sea level. From a distance, the Fort greatly resembles an island.
And it might as well have been one thousand years ago, when the sea was supposed
to have been 20 meters higher and the Negro River was supposed to have had a second mouth just south of the Fort.
Delphos Foundation, a multidisciplinary team that studies these matters, supports this by producing maps and ancient documents.
But this is only a complement to the Foundation’s central hypothesis. This apparently desolate place hides a great secret:It is an abandoned city of the Templars that in its golden age kept one of the greatest mysteries of Christianity… The Holy Grail.
Delphos researchers say that according to many historians the Templars frequently traveled to America in pre-Columbian times, so it shouldn’t be surprising that “cities of Caesars” were established in the continent.
The Foundation states that three cities were established in the present Patagonian region: one on the Pacific near Osorno city, another in the lower slopes of the Andes, and the third on the Atlantic within San Matías Gulf, where we find the Fort, which is the subject of their research.
Cartographic material is one of the strongest supporting evidence of their hypothesis —in an atlas published in 1865 by Juan Antonio Víctor Martín de Moussy, a cartographer hired by Urquiza’s administration, the Fort is referred to as “Ancien Fort abandonné”. In six other contemporary maps of those times the site is marked as a fort.
Delphos Foundation decided to make various expeditions to the Fort zone. From December, 1997 to November 2006 more than 8 expeditions were conducted and oral testimonies and some material findings were obtained.
In one of the maps, which was drawn by the Spaniard Cruz Cano and that seems to confirm the Fort’s past insular condition, there is a reference to white men(“Island of White Men according to the Nation’s natives, in accordance with Quiroga’s travel maps”). Based on this information, the Foundation interviewed present inhabitants that recalled an ancient secret agreement made by their ancestors and some white men speaking a strange language.
As to material findings, in April 1998 the Foundation’s researchers found a block of dark granite or basalt stone that bears a bass-relief showing an identical-armed cross, which they named “templar stone”.
They also discovered various “small tiles” or mosaics, triangular in shape and with a smooth side and a striated side, which researchers claim to have been part of the tiling of buildings in the fort.
Other elements found are lithographic findingswhich raise special interest, namely: a coin with a cross, a circle and a kind of crescent.
This information contributes to the formulation of the hypothesis that the denomination of “Fort” is not random but it is still hard to discern the presence of the Holy Grail in that remote spot of Patagonia.
Delphos Foundation seems to have reached this conclusion after reading several books and ancient manuscripts describing situations that can fit their hypothesis. But there is nothing conclusive that may reveal this “secret” as something real.
It seems that once again everything comes down to the personal decision of believing or not believing, clinging to some kind of faith as a shield or closing your eyes to avoid the radiant sunlight that bathes the Fort’s horizon and get carried away.
Some so-called well-informed people declare this is now the endgame of the alliance battle against the Deep State. Let’s pray for victory, let us pray for a different world where the people reconnect with their soul and Source and live in peace and brotherhood. When we want to see a different world we have to forgive the old one still otherwise it will pull us back. Only forgiveness will set us free. So savior can do this for us. For the ego its a sacrifice, I know, but the real sacrifice is believing in the ego as one´s identity. We can either be right or happy but not both.
The official name of the Knights Templars (Templiers) was the “Order of the Poor Knights of Christ”, formed in Jerusalem in 1118 to protect the pilgrims visiting Palestine at the end of the First Crusade of 1096. The full, original name was “The Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple which is in Jerusalem”, making it understandable why a short title became popular.
The Templars’ Downfall
The enormous wealth and power of the Knights Templars aroused both greed and envy. With their huge reserves of cash and their banking system, France’s King Philip the Fair had gone to the Templars for loans to finance his wars. Beyond has read different accounts, some where the Templars refused Philip IV’s request for money, and some where the King wanted to avoid repaying the loans he already had from them.
The First Friday the 13th
On Friday the 13th in the year 1307, the month of October [thanks, Jonathan Curtis], all of the Templars in France were rounded up and emprisoned – “Friday the 13th” has been an unlucky day since that event.
Alleged Crimes and Real Punishments
The Templars were charged with Satanism and many other “unnatural” acts and practices. Many of the charges may have been complete fabrications, but some could have been distortions of secret rites of the Templars. There were torture-encouraged confessions in the style of the Spanish Inquisition, and many were found guilty for refusing to “confess”.
Many of the Templars in France were terminally punished, à la Joan of Arc, including the Grand Master, Jacques de Molay [graphic, left], who was burnt at the stake in 1314, near Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral.
Disbanding the Order
At the beginning of the purge, Philip the Fair began coercing the Popes to excommunicate the Templars. He attempted to have Pope Boniface VIII kidnaped. The king was excommunicated, but Boniface died as a result of the kidnapping attempt. Pope Benedict XI lifted the excommunication of King Philip, but it was his successor, Pope Clement V, who finally went along with the King and, in 1312, had the Templars dsibanded worldwide. It was Pope Clement V who established the Popes in Avignon.
The now-ownerless wealth and property of the Templars was officially assigned to the Knights Hospitalers. But, in France, King Philip had confiscated all of the Templars possessions at the beginning, in 1307, and didn’t pass on much of it to the Hospitalers. In England, King Edward II seized the Templars lands and possessions, including the Temple in London, and didn’t pass on anything to the Hospitalers.
Beyond the End
Following the declared end of the Templars in 1312, the Order continued in secret, with Jean-Marc Larmenius the first Grand Master of the now-secret organization, and the Order continued with an uninterrupted line of Grand Masters. In 1705, a convention of Templars at Versailles elected Philip, Duke of Orleans, as Grand Master. This Philip (le Régent) became Regent of France in 1715. With a combined Regent and Grand Master, the Order of the Temple was renewed and legitimized as a Secular Military Order of Chivalry.
Following the death of le Régent in December, 1723, Grand Masters continued, through the three Princes of Bourbon (until 1776), the Duke de Cosse Brissac (until his execution during the French Revolution in 1782), and Radix de Chevillon. In the early 19th century, the Order expanded, with over 20 Convents in France and Priories set up across Europe.
Legacy and Remnants
The Templars brought back craft and custom from the East and left a legacy of fortresses and shrines. Their architecture is well noted for its skilled stonework, and their masonry expertise later helped Europeans build the great castles and churches of the Middle Ages. [Offered by Peter Sheppard]
In the Larzac region of the South of France (10-20 km south of Millau, 100 km NW of Montpellier) are five fortified Templars villages that still retain their defensive walls and medieval buildings.

Here are some of the places in Provence and France where the Knights Templars were established:
Biot – the Counts of Provence gave Biot to the Templars in 1209.
Cairanne – Templars ruled here, before passing it to the Hospitalers.
Le Fugeret – the Templars cleared the land here for farming.
Greoux-les-Bains – the Templars’ castle dominates the town.
Lapalud – Co-ruled by the Templars until the 11th century.
Lorgues – the Templars Commanderie du Riou built here in 1156.
Richerenches – the Templars first Commanderie here.
Senez – once a Templars establishment in this tiny village.
Trigance – Legends of a Templars treasure hidden in the castle.
Vacqueyras – Templars rule.
Elancourt – a Templars Commanderie here, between Maurepas and Trapes
The Vence location was Templars Commanderie at Saint-Martin-de-Vence, just north of the town. (Today the site is a classy hotel-restaurant). The Commandeur of Saint-Martin-de-Vence was arrested at 5 on Friday 13 October 1307 by the vigan of Saint Paul. There’s a legend that Saint-Martin-de-Vence contains a lost treasure of the Templars, and the German chancellor Adenauer was a frequent visitor searching for the treasure.
Saint-Martin-de-Vence controlled the route north of Vence, and was itself protected by the camp at the top of the Baou des Blancs, the tall cliff overlooking the town. The Baou des Blancs was an oval wall at the top of the cliff, re-occupied by the “Pénitents Blancs” (hence the name of the baou) and then fortified by the Templars.
The La Gaude site was the old Castro de Gauda, also called “Puget Treize Dames”, and more recently the great Templar Chateau de La Gaude. La Gaude, between Saint Jeannet and Gattières, was at a strategic location overlooking the Var and controlling an important route to the sea. At the fall of the Templars, it became the property of the Villeneuves.
This secret is a drop of light hold within the point of the pineal gland. This connects us with the holy spirit. He knows about our life purpose and is our eternal GPS. When we surrender the Ego because we are ready to serve the Greater Good, we will learn that all things come to us freely.
I was looking into the Sharon Tate murder case. Nowadays all the photos are available. It’s deeply moving, terrifying what humans can do to others when their minds are turning in the wrong direction. Thatswhy it is important to keep praying all the time and stay in empty awareness. Let the mind see the mind. So it can recognize its true nature. I have published the prophecies of the Templar John of Jerusalem on the main page. Don´t miss it! It’s about our time, even we work hard to jump into another timeline in order to prevent or skip disaster. Stay safe!
The greek word Kensos became importand for Christianity by the writing of Paul in Philipians 2 :
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,1 6 pwho, though he was in qthe form of God, did not count equality with God ra thing to be grasped,2 7 but semptied himself, by taking the form of a tservant,3 ubeing born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by vbecoming obedient to the point of death, weven death on a cross. 9 xTherefore yGod has zhighly exalted him and bestowed on him athe name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus bevery knee should bow, cin heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and devery tongue confess that Jesus Christ is eLord, to the glory of God the Father. “
So what does that mean for our community that wants to keep the inheritance of the Knights Templar high? It means that we have to learn to give our selves away in our daily lives. When we don´t contain ourselves but let the current of life move through us we will fulfill God´s will for us each moment and create a new community.
