- The Strange Hieroglyphs on the Mysterious 'Whatsit'
- In their remarkable book, The Rainbow
Conspiracy, Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger present an amazing
photograph given to them by an anonymous UFO researcher. According to
their informant, a massive piece of unidentified machinery was one of six
excavated circa 1990 from a great depth on secret government property in
the United States and promptly reburied in the same area. The huge ìWhatsitî
dwarfs the dumpster and the crane at its side. No one has been able to
identify the mind-boggling machinery.
- Are these fantastic machines the product
of an ancient civilization of advanced technology that once occupied North
America? Are they the creation of a highly advanced extraterrestrial civilization
that left them behind in an underground depository on Earth? Or could
they be secret machines fashioned by our own technology for who knows what
- One could argue for the monster machines
being the mysterious tools of a ancient people because the surface of this
mysterious apparatus is covered with peculiar hieroglyphics that appear
similar to characters in ancient Hebrew, Arabic, and Sanskrit. But then
one could also maintain that such symbols are extraterrestrial in origin.
- Here for the first time, the Steigers
share a sample rubbing from the surface of the gargantuan object. When
they presented this sample to a group of experts in ancient languages,
there was no consensus as to the exact language employed or to a translation
of the glyphs.
- Researcher David Adair contacted the
Steigers and informed them that an anonymous source had given him a copy
of the massive machinery taken from a slightly different angle. He had
also been given a sample rubbing, which he, in turn, had presented to a
language lab at a major university. These experts claimed that a partial
translation of the rubbing that Adair had been given would read, "experiment...lab...able...nine...cup."
- One reader of Rainbow Conspiracy commented
how similar the mysterious machine appeared to the technology employed
by the scientist [Jody Foster] in the motion picture, Contact, referring
to the massive instrumentation that projected her space capsule to another
dimension or another world to make contact with a higher intelligence.
- Perhaps, like the pyramids, the cities
of the giants in the Andes, and a host of other anomalous discoveries,
these machines are left by some unidentified intelligence as cosmic educational
toys to provoke our species into unraveling the promise of our future through
the mystery of our past.
