What The Pharmaceutical Industry & Your Doctor Don’t Tell You About Depression

Published

on

Before starting off, it’s important to mention that yes, some individuals suffer more than others when it comes to depression, and people do need assistance to climb out of these dark places. There is no denying that in this article, what is being challenged is the disease-model of depression, and how it may not be helpful in helping get rid of a problem that continues to rise exponentially. Are drugs really the answer? Do they even do anything? What’s the science behind depression? It’s also important to mention that many doctors are completely unaware of this type of information, it’s not like they are ‘not telling’ you on purpose.

Anti-depressant drugs are the most commonly prescribed drugs in North America. Pharmaceutical companies are bringing in billions of dollars every single year from the sale of anti-depressant drugs alone, and they also spend billions of dollars marketing and advertising their products. Not only that, pharmaceutical companies have been found to falsify research and influence scientific literature. This is a big problem that plagues the modern day medical industry. For example, last month, an independent review found that the commonly prescribed antidepressant drug Paxil (paroxetine), is not safe for teenagers, despite the fact that a large amount of literature already previously suggested otherwise. The 2001 drug trial that took place, funded by GlaxoSmithKline, found that these drugs were completely safe, and used that ‘science’ to market Paxil as safe for teenagers. You can read more about that story here.

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”  – (source)(source) Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal

This is a problem that’s well known in the medical community, which is why John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine published the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS) entitled Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. In the report, he stated that most current published research findings are false.

This was more than 10 years ago, fast forward to today where a more recent ‘cry’ to the public masses came from Dr Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet. He stated that half of all the published literature could be false. (source)

The examples are endless, so let’s take a look at depression.

The Chemical Imbalance Theory Might Be Incorrect

Joseph Coyle, a neuroscientist from Harvard Medical School sums it up best, “chemical imbalance is sort of last-century thinking. It’s much more complicated than that.” And it’s true, depression is much more complicated than that, at least much more than the commonly accepted belief that depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain. This idea was posed in the late 1950’s, and sticks today, it’s the general idea that a deficiency of select neurotransmitters exists (chemical messengers) at critical points, like synapses. One of these neurotransmitters, for example, is serotonin, others include norepinephrine and dopamine.

As Scientific American reports, “much of the general public seems to have accepted the chemical imbalance hypothesis uncritically,” and that “it is very likely that depression stems from influences other than neurotransmitter abnormalities.” (source)

Harvard medical school put out a press release a few years ago stating that it’s “often said that depression results from a chemical imbalance, but that figure of speech doesn’t capture how complex the disease is.”  (source)

“Of course, there are brain events and biochemical reactions occurring when someone feels depressed, as there are all the time, but no research has ever established that a particular brain state causes, or even correlates with depression…In all cases studies yield inconsistent results, and none have been shown to be specific to depression, let alone causal…The fact that more than 50 years of intense research efforts have failed to identify depression in the brain may indicate that we simply lack the right technology, or it may suggest we have been barking up the wrong tree.” – Dr. Joanna Moncrieff,  British Psychiatrist, Author (source)

The most commonly cited evidence to support the chemical imbalance theory comes from the fact that some drugs have been shown to increase and decrease mood in human and animal models, and yes, many antidepressants increase the amounts of serotonin and other neurotransmitters at synapses, but what we fail to realize today is just because mood can be artificially manipulated with drugs, does not mean that the chemical imbalance theory is true. Just because these antidepressants do increase and decrease certain chemical levels in the brain. does not prove the chemical imbalance theory of depression.

To say that a human being has a chemical imbalance (to whatever extent) and what neurotransmitters are involved is something that’s not possible, which is why the chemical imbalance theory of depression remains a theory. It’s not like chemical levels in the brain can accurately be measured or ‘looked at’ either.

This comes despite the fact that much of the general public still accepts the chemical imbalance theory. For example, a survey conducted in 2007 of 262 undergraduates at Cleveland State University found that more than 80 percent of the participants found it “likely” that chemical imbalances cause depression. (source)

“At best, drug-induced affective disturbances can only be considered models for natural disorders, while it remains to be demonstrated that the behavioral changes produced by these drugs have any relation to naturally occurring biochemical abnormalities which might be associated with the illness.” (source)

Keep in mind, as Harvard Medical School points out, that there are probably many chemicals involved, working both inside and outside of our nerve cells. “There are millions, even billions, of chemical reactions that make up the dynamic system that is responsible for your mood, perceptions, and how you experience life.

“The cause of mental disorders such as depression remains unknown. However, the idea that neurotransmitter imbalances cause depression is vigorously promoted by pharmaceutical companies and the psychiatric profession at large.”(source)

Again, theories like the low serotonin one, came into existence because scientists have been able to observe what drugs to to the brain. It was a hypothesis that attempted to explain how drugs could be fixing something, yet whether or not depressed people actually had lower serotonin levels actually remains to be proven. You can read more about the science here.

“The serotonin theory is simply not a scientific statement. It’s a botched theory – a hypothesis that was proven incorrect.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola (source)

Not only is there no solid scientific proof to back up the chemical imbalance theory, another is the fact that many depressed people are not even helped by taking antidepressants like SSRIs. For example, a review done by the University of California in 2009 found that one third of people treated with antidepressants do not improve, and a significant portion of these people remain depressed. Scientific American points out that “if antidepressants correct a chemical imbalance that underlies depression, all or most depressed people should get better after taking them.”  (source)

That being said, there are many who do report positive benefits, but there is no way to tell if the drugs are working or of it’s just working like a placebo.

Think about this for a moment. So many of us are made to believe that depression is the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, when there is actually little scientific evidence to support that statement. Association between various brain changes and depression is large, and no studies have established a solid, cause-and-effect correlation between the brain and the disorder.

Depression has one focus, brain chemistry, despite the fact that there are multiple concerns, multiple facts, and millions of chemicals, focusing on this one chemical imbalance theory, and then dishing out drugs that actually alter brain chemistry, as Scientific American reports, “shortsighted.”

“In spite of the enormous amounts of money and time that has been spent on the quest to confirm the chemical imbalance theory, direct proof has never materialized.”  (source)

I personally believe that it is quite ironic actually, because the only imbalances we know of in the brains of people called mental patients, are the ones inflicted on them by the psychiatric drugs. How ironic, we make a false claim that they have biochemical imbalances and then we give them biochemical imbalances…

Pharmaceutical Fraud

markIt’s no secret that there is a high income partnership between drug companies and psychiatry, one that’s created a multi-billion dollar industry that’s based off of money, not science. Many experts suggest that the chemical imbalanced theory of depression has been used to market anti-depressant drugs. In fact, when we talk about scientific fraud, the latest example has to do with the antidepressant drug Paxil, as mentioned above.

An independent review found that the commonly prescribed antidepressant drug Paxil (paroxetine), is not safe for teenagers, despite the fact that a large amount of literature already previously suggested this. The 2001 drug trial that took place, funded by GlaxoSmithKline, found that these drugs were completely safe, and used that ‘science’ to market Paxil as safe for teenagers.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine”    Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (source)

The chemical balance theory alone transformed the pharmaceutical companies. Prior to the chemical imbalance theory, these drugs were never heard of, and this type of money was not coming in, and the financial ties between medicine and pharmaceutical companies wasn’t as strong.

American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others investigated financial ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members 95 (56%) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry. One hundred percent of the members on the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas, where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing. (source)

“The DSM appears to be more a political document than a scientific one. Each diagnostic criteria in the DSM is not based on medical science. No blood tests exist for the disorders in the DSM. It relies on judgments from practitioners who rely on the manual.”  – Lisa Cosgrove, PhD, Professor of Counseling and School Psychology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.

The very vocabulary of psychiatry is now defined at all levels by the pharmaceutical industry,” Dr. Irwin Savodnik, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Los Angeles (source)

The financial ties and examples of scientific fraud between publications and corporations is one of the biggest problems that plagues the medical industry today, and it’s a serious one.

It’s not illogical to assume, given all the examples of scientific fraud, and the lack of science behind why people are depressed, that the chemical imbalance theory has been used to market the heavy sale of these drugs.

We are perhaps seeing the same thing with ADHD, and you can learn more about that in this article:

4 Facts About ADHD That Teachers & Doctors Never Tell Parents

Below Dr. Peter Rost, MD, a former vice president of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world (Pfizer), shares the truth about the ties between the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

How Your Thoughts/Feelings & Emotions Can Change Your Biology

Again, as the literature (mentioned in the above paragraphs) points out, depression is not all cut and dry. Should we really be taking medications that change the chemical flows in our brains, despite the fact that we know very little about the chemical flows and neurotransmitters that are set to cause depression in the first place? Think of children, antidepressant drugs are being dished out at critical points in brain development. Despite the fact that many of these drugs have some harmful side effects, and are given to patients based on a theory that has no grounds in science, it seems a bit odd.

It’s also odd that the fact that our thoughts, feelings, emotions and how we perceive our environment can literally change our brain and the chemical flows within them.

One great example is neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to adapt and change. It’s the idea that the brain is malleable, that it’s function and structure can change with simple changes in our thinking or perception of the environment around us. It’s a response to sensing and perceiving the world, even to thinking and imagining. Human thoughts and learning actually turn on specific nerve cells which allow those cells to make new connections between each other.

Our brain shapes and re-shapes itself given how we perceive the environment alone. Neuroplasticity suggests the way we think alters chemical flows, which makes one wonder, is depression caused by a chemical imbalance or does a chemical imbalance exist because of the way we are thinking and perceiving things?

As your mind changes, your brain changes.

Apart from neuroplasticity, there are many placebo studies showing the effectiveness of how we think. You can read more about that in this article:

The Placebo Effect: Transforming Biology With Belief

The wonderful and brilliant scientists over at the Institute of HeartMath have done some amazing work in shedding light on the science of the heart. This is also important and relevant to mention here when it comes to thinking about depression. You can find out more about that in this article we published last year:

What Science Is Telling Us About The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence

I often wonder why so many people suffer from depression, and notice how drugs are the most common answer rather than going within and addressing the real problem. Perhaps, also, it’s time for us to take a look at the environment human beings choose to surround themselves with on a daily basis, because it doesn’t seem to be resonating with the majority. Our planet needs change on multiple levels, and perhaps this is one contributing factor as to why so many people don’t feel well?

UK Primary School Walks Out Over Dangers Associated With WiFi & Cell Tower Radiation

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A primary school in the UK is organizing a walk-out due to the construction of a cell phone tower in very close proximity to the school. Multiple countries in Europe have already banned cell phone towers and WiFi radiation in schools and nurseries.

  • Reflect On:

    There are thousands of peer-reviewed publications that call into question this type of technology when it comes to the impact it has on our health. How have the corporations been able to by-pass these concerns and completely ignore them?

The process of change is not instant, and it takes demonstrations and awareness groups to eventually bring about change, but how much longer can we wait when it comes to the issue of Cell Phone Tower radiation, and radiation that’s emitted from our favourite handheld gadgets, and WiFi radiation overall?

We are coming off of the world’s largest study that just confirmed the cell phone tower & cancer link, these activists are coming from over 2000 peer-reviewed studies showing numerous health concerns with this type of radiation. There is so much science to back up these claims and even as many as 300 scientists are currently petitioning the UN on the issue, it’s great to see that the people themselves are also getting involved and creating awareness.

You may be asking with all of this evidence, why is this still allowed? Well, welcome to corporate North America, where the corporations take over the science and use the scientific products to fraudulently approve these products they claim are safe. It’s time for some real safety testing, isn’t it?

Multiple countries overseas have already banned these towers and WiFi internet in primary schools, as well as near young children and nurseries due to all of the evidence, but this news hasn’t been heard of yet in the mainstream here. Science has been politicized, and if scientific fact/finding goes against the powerful establishment and their interests, it’s rarely heard about or acknowledged, because, for the most part, the masses source of information is establishment owned media.

“Putting it bluntly they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely.” –
Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Colombia University (source)

Devon Primary School in the UK is currently making some noise as they are planning a mass walk-out in protest of a controversial mobile phone tower that is located 10 meters from the school and located just 50 meters away from Dartington Primary School. Parents are worried about the radiation readings at the school, which apparently show the highest reading of ‘excessive radiation.’

The concerning thing is that it’s not just primary schools these towers are affecting, but everywhere. It’s especially concerning because of how sensitive a child’s brain is, they absorb much more radiation than an adult brain does. Check out the links to the articles above if you’d like to learn more about the science, or simply visit the Environmental Health Trust.

Dr. David Carpenter, Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Albany, USA told DevonLive:

Children are more vulnerable to RF/MW radiation because of the susceptibility of their developing nervous systems… Children are largely unable to remove themselves from exposures to harmful substances in their environments. Their exposure is involuntary… There is a major legal difference between an exposure that an individual chooses to accept and one that is forced upon a person, especially a dependent, who can do nothing about it.

Below is a picture of one of the parents with her children.

Michelle McHale, Director of Attachment Parenting UK whose girls attended Dartington Primary said she is disappointed at the lack of care that was put in with regards to siting the mast.

We love our school and we agree with technological development but the mast’s closeness casts a dark shadow over our newly built school and many parents are seriously considering de-registering which could create a real conundrum for the council who own the small roadside verge where the mast is erected.

What Can You Do?

You can get a faster, wired connection and not use wireless. You could unplug your devices as often as you can. You can live a healthy-lifestyle, use mind-body techniques and more, to keep a healthy immune system that can fight off potential ailments caused by these devices and technology. You could write to your mayor, congressperson or simply create more awareness. People are impacted by this type of radiation, and it’s something we as a global community really need to be vocal about because the communication companies don’t seem to acknowledge it at all.

Ultimately, I believe we are in control of our health, no matter how bad the environment gets, but it’s a delicate and connected relationship that needs balance, and the acknowledgement of both sides. I do not condone unhealthy practices if one is sound in their own mind, but at the deepest levels of reality, sometimes I feel that is all that is required to sustain health, it’s all about what you believe you need to do to stay healthy, and that may be different for everyone.

This is something I’ve researched for nearly a decade, yet I still do not ‘worry’ about it, despite creating awareness about it and recognizing that it’s a problem.

Animation Beautifully Explores ‘The War On Consciousness’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many feel there is a great effort to suppress human consciousness. Not just our will, but the exploration of who we truly are. This shows up in many ways, originating top-down from corporations to governments etc.

  • Reflect On:

    There is no actual 'war.' This is a state of perception. If we see it as war, we create fighting. Instead, let's simply evolve and expand our consciousness knowing we're more powerful than those who suppress. Spreading knowledge and living it is key.

The animation below is great and Graham Hancock’s message in it is also powerful, but I want to address something important quickly before we start, as what I’m about to say is a crucial part of the message we have been working so hard to convey here at CE since inception.

I get that ‘the war on consciousness’ is a figure of speech in the case of this talk, but with 10 years working in this field of journalism and consciousness, I do see many of us getting caught up in the idea that we have to fight and that there is a war to be won.

I see this as a state of consciousness that will keep us locked in a state of disconnection and loss of power.

Moving Beyond A Key Myth

One of the biggest myths that gets spread around this movement is that we must get angry to change the world. The truth is, some of us might get angry at first, and that’s totally fine! But we have to shift beyond the consciousness of being angry about our world before we can change it in any way that will TRULY cause change.

When we change things out of anger, spite, judgement or anxiety, we don’t create systems from the heart, this we will need to break them down again in a very short time. Not because we have evolved beyond them again, but because they are systems created from a polarized state of being. THIS is what we’re moving beyond in this shift.

Change Starts Within.

This is neutrality in action. This is how we evolve beyond what we see in our world.

What does it mean to evolve beyond it? It’s to be in a state of being and emotion where these events can no longer happen. When you assume you must fight for something, you are saying that there needs to be a fight, thus you are met with a fight. That emotion and idea comes from a disconnected state of consciousness where we can still create that experience.

If we as individuals evolve beyond the need for the fight, it would mean to be in a state of being where we do not need to see the fight. That comes from changing our view and perception of something.

Being present, being here now, and not identifying so strongly with the body, our identity, culture, skin color, struggle etc is powerful. We instead see and live in a state of being where we practice the knowing of our pure potential, living through the heart, collaborative oneness and true heart guidance.

Thus, to evolve beyond it is to change your state of being so that this type of reality no longer exists as it can’t be created from that new state of being. When we achieve this collectively, it no longer exists in our world.

Now that I got that out of the way, one last note is, Graham Hancock will speak of psychedelics in his talk. They have become incredibly trendy today, and while they can help people, research is suggesting this happens when done in specific ways and with specific intentions. Many are starting to put all their power into these plants as if it will do the work for them. They don’t, and won’t.

You can also achieve these exact same insights without the use of these plants. It’s important we maintain a grounded and realistic approach to these plants so they can be used with respect and for their intended purpose. We explore the purpose of psychedelics deeply in an episode of The Collective Evolution Podcast here.

 The ‘War’ On Consciousness

This animation was created by the talented team over at After Skool. You can check out their channel here.

Transcript

What is death? Our materialist science reduces everything to matter, materialist science in the West says that we are just meat, we’re just our bodies. So when the brain is dead, that’s the end of consciousness, there is no life after death, there is no soul; we just rot and are gone. Actually, many honest scientists should admit that consciousness is the greatest mystery of science and that we don’t know exactly how it works.

The brain is involved in it some way but we’re not sure how. It could be that the brain generates consciousness the way a generator makes electricity, if you hold to that paradigm, then, of course, you can’t believe in life after death, when the generator’s broken, consciousness is gone. But it’s equally possible that the relationship — and nothing in neuroscience rules it out – that the relationship is more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set, and in that case, when the TV set is broken, of course the TV signal continues. And this is the paradigm of all spiritual traditions, that we are immortal souls temporarily incarnated in these physical forms.

If we want to understand consciousness, the last people we should ask are materialist scientists. Instead, we should look at ancient cultures, like the Egyptians, who highly valued dream states. Many ancient cultures around the world used hallucinogenic plants to understand consciousness and expand their minds.

However, in today’s society, visionary plants are highly illegal because they promote a state of consciousness that does not agree with the agenda of profit. Substances, like coffee, alcohol, sugar and pharmaceuticals, are forced upon the population, but possession of even small quantities of cannabis, Ayahuasca or psilocybin will land you in jail. If we do not recognize the right of adult sovereignty over consciousness, then we can NOT claim to be free.

Look at what our moderns state of consciousness has done. We have destroyed the natural gifts of the earth in pursuit of short-term, selfish gain. We must reconnect with spirit immediately or else we will encounter disaster. Visionary plants could be the remedy for our current sickness.

The Bosnian Pyramid Complex: Larger, Older & More Mysterious Than Pyramids In Egypt

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In 2005, a giant pyramid complex consisting of 11 structures was discovered in Bosnia. One of the structures is larger than the great pyramid. The majority of scholars who have been brought in to study it have little to no doubt that these are real.

  • Reflect On:

    If these are indeed real and not mere natural formations, what are the implications? Pyramid structures bigger than Egypt, and also possibly much older than Egypt, would change everything we think we know about our past, and this is just one example.

If the Bosnian pyramid of the sun is genuine, and there is very little doubt in my mind that it isn’t, then we are confronted with the highest structure in the world, and also the tallest pyramid in the world – Phillip Copens, author and pyramid expert.

A few years ago, a discovery in Bosnia made headlines (2005) when it was announced that the world’s largest pyramid had been found near the town of Visoko, northwest of the Bosnian city of Sarajevo.

What’s very interesting about pyramids is that they’re not only found in Egypt but are spread out throughout the world, supposedly built by civilizations that had absolutely no contact with each other and roamed the Earth at different time periods throughout human history.

What makes this massive undertaking so common across history?

Fascinating isn’t it? What is it about these structures that basically had the entire world, thousands of years ago, construct them? What do they represent? Our history books are far from a valid resource, there are so many new discoveries being made with regards to pyramids and ancient archaeology that our education system simply cannot keep up with it all and discoveries in this area are so controversial that if something astonishing is actually discovered and it challenges our belief systems, it’s instantly categorized as false, or ‘pseudoscience.’

Thus, it becomes ridiculed and nobody will touch the subject in fear of their credibility. This is also a result of giving our consciousness away to external sources and not investigating these types of things for ourselves. This is especially seen when it comes to non-material science. No matter how many statistically significant results are published, or how many strange phenomena are observed in the lab, if it defies belief or we can’t explain it, it’s deemed as not real. In this sense, today, we have a lot of scientific dogma and a lot of discoveries that would change what we know about human history.

The Extensive Research

One researcher at the forefront of the Bosnian pyramid mystery is Semir Osmanagic, a Ph.D and a Bosnian born resident of the United States. He is a former Anthropology professor at the American University in Bosnia-Herzegovina and established a non-profit and non-government, Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation to pursue the excavation and geo-archaeological work. He is also a successful businessman.

Osmanagich has been admitted as a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences in Moscow, one of the most respected scientific institutions in the world with over twenty Nobel-prize winners. He is also a member of Croatian Academy of Science and Art for Diaspora based in Bazel (Switzerland) since 2015. This all came after the discovery of the Pyramid complex…

He is the one who discovered this ancient pyramid in Bosnia, but it’s not just one, it’s an entire complex of what appears to be eleven, possibly artificial structures: The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, the Bosnian Pyramid of Love, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, the Temple of Mother Earth, Vratnica Tumulus, Dolovi Tumulus, Ginje Tumulus, KTK Tunnels, Underground Labyrinth “Ravne” and “Ravne 2” tunnels.

Below is a picture of the largest one. If it is what it appears to be, it’s the biggest stone structure in the shape of the pyramid on the Planet, with a height of 220 meters.

Outside of the Bosnian Pyramid, beneath the vegetation that has grown, are giant concrete conglomerate blocks. Below is a picture with Osmanagic standing next to them. It’s also noteworthy to point out the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, with its height of 190 meters (second biggest stone structure in the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids, together with the Sun and Dragon pyramids form a perfect equilateral triangle.

Another astonishing discovery below is a picture from Osmanagic of prehistorical underground tunnel networks that connects all 11 pyramids found within the complex, the tunnels run for tens of kilometres.

There are more coincidences and unexplained mathematical/geometrical/metaphysical anomalies you can learn about in his lecture linked at the bottom of this article.

This reminds me of the quiet discovery of liquid Mercury beneath a pyramid in South America. There is still so much undiscovered about pyramids, and to simply imply that they were used as tombs seems to be quite elementary. It seems that their explanation goes far beyond that, the mathematical precision we’ve seen from these pyramids around the world are astounding, and there are multiple coincidences that make one wonder if they were really just coincidences, like the fact that the speed of light, once plugged into google maps as a geographical coordinate, takes you right to the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Below is a picture of one of the Megalithic blocks in the underground tunnel network that have carved symbols that have been covered by conglomerate material for more than 30.000 years according to the radiocarbon dating.

First International Scientific Conference On The Topic

First International Scientific Conference about the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids was held in Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina) in August 25-30, 2008

“Modern day archaeology and anthropology have nearly sealed the door on our imaginations, broadly interpreting the North American past as devoid of anything unusual in the way of great cultures characterized by a people of unusual demeanour. The great interloper of ancient burial grounds, the nineteenth century Smithsonian Institution, created a one-way portal, through which uncounted bones have been spirited. This door and the contents of its vault are virtually sealed off to anyone but government officials. Among these bones may lay answers not even sought by these officials concerning the deep past.” – Vine Deloria

These pyramids caused quite a stir in the historical/archaeological/anthropological community. As a result, a scientific conference was arranged in August 2008 with more than 50 experts from Egypt, Russia, China, Poland, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Croatia, Austria, Montenegro and Bosnia. Out of this conference is where full support was given to establishing a Center for Pyramid studies in Bosnia. This wasn’t the only conference held on the matter, four more were held in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 with more than 100 experts from various scientific backgrounds, concluding that the Bosnian Pyramid complex is indeed the oldest on the planet.

Here are their conclusions, quoted:

Work at the archaeological location “Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids“ in Visoko, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is an important geo-archaeological and epigraphical research that requires further multidisciplinary scientific research which should answer the origin of the Bosnian pyramidal hills and the extensive underground tunnel network as well as other archaeological sites in the vicinity;

ICBP Conference recommends that Second International Scientific Conference about the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids should be held in Sarajevo in two years (2010) and gather experts in pyramid research from all over the world;

ICBP Conference introduce the initiative to establish Centre for Pyramid studies with headquarter in Sarajevo;

ICBP Conference recommends universities in Bosnia and Herzegovina to establish study at the graduate level for archaeology as a support to the reasearch project „Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids“.

Here is the source, as is also posted on the Osmanagics website linked earlier in the article.

Below is a list for a committee on the topic that came from the very first conference mentioned above, in 2008.

Ancient Energy Machines?

Osmanagic, as emphasized by researcher and author Jim Mars’ in Our Occulted History, has also been outspoken about radiocarbon dating that was conducted by the Institute of Physics of the Silesian Institute of Technology in Gliwice, Poland, which indicated that the pyramids at the site, the largest rising up to 722 feet, were constructed well before ten thousand years ago, which also makes it the oldest pyramid(s) in the world. This means that their construction might have happened well before the ones in ancient Egypt, or perhaps, simultaneously.

Here’s a quote from Osmanagic which also brings us to another topic, taken from Our Occulted History:

A team of physicists detected an energy beam coming through the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. The radius of the beam is 4.5 meters with a frequency of 28 kHZ (kilohertz). The bean is continuous and its strength grows as it moves up and away from the pyramid. This phenomenon contradicts the known laws of physics and technology. This is the first proof of non-herzian technology on the planet. It seems that the pyramid-builders created a perpetual motion machine a long time ago and this “energy machine” is still working.

Almost everything they teach us about the ancient history is wrong: origin of men, civilization, pyramids. Homo sapiens is not a result of evolution and biologists will never find a “missing link,” because intelligent man is the product of genetic engineering. Sumerians are not the beginning of the civilized men, but rather the beginning of another cycle of humanity. And finally, original pyramids, most superior and oldest, were made by advanced builders who knew energy, astronomy ad construction better than we do.

Osmanagic claims that these were also the general conclusions that emerged out of these conferences that were held multiple times.

Scholars in this area are very well aware of other factors that might explain the construction of these pyramids, and again, these other factors instantaneously go against the belief system of many, which results in a complete lack of investigation or any further mainstream study, at all, simply because it defies belief, and changes a lot with regards to what we know about ancient history. The very fact that these pyramids might be 30,000 years old is one example of the belief destruction that would occur with regards to our knowledge of ancient civilizations, and the questions of who, what, where when and why.

The Skeptics & Controversy

Despite the fact that world-renowned scholars in multiple fields, including ancient archaeology and other related fields, all, without a doubt, have claimed to have witnessed one of the most important discoveries of our type (this pyramid complex), coverage of the finding within mainstream publications was pretty poor. Labelling the formations as natural, and not really presenting any of this information to the public. Instead, in the mainstream, it was somewhat ridiculed and hardly even acknowledged.

Ask yourself, what would happen if the world acknowledged this older that Egypt period complex? What would it mean? How much of what we thought we knew would completely change? The careers built on Egyptology would have to adjust. This means having to let go of old ideas. Ego’s are very challenged by this and this is part of the challenge. It’s a personal development and consciousness issue.

Anthony Harding, a president of the European Association of Archaeologists, is one example of such skepticism, who’s stated (Our Occulted History):

Since such claims obviously belonged to a fantasy world, I was inclined to ignore the affair..

Right off the bat, without any investigation at all, he instantly ridicules the idea, despite the fact that it was the conclusion of many other scholars in the area.

He later wrote,

I called in at the hill of Visocica, on the edge of the town of Visoko, this solely in order to avoid the charge, already laid at our door, that we had condemned the project without seeing it for ourselves. As we expected, we saw areas of natural stone, with fissures and cracks; but no sign of anything that looked like archaeology.

He said this despite the fact that himself and a few other skeptics failed to explain the accounts and photos that were taken of the underground tells and champers within the complex…

The process of excavation is still ongoing, as it will take many years given the fact that this pyramid complex is so large and completely covered by natural vegetation and forest.

Again, this movement is not without criticism, as anything with such huge implications usually is…
