Prague’s Mysterious Houska Castle: Gateway To Hell?

Czech Republic (or Czechia),  a central European country that was previously part of Czechoslovakia is fairly well-known for its abundance of beautiful castles as they are located in almost every visible facet of the country. 

One most highly frequented castle recognized by tourists across the globe is none other than their Hluboka Nad Vltavou Castle that lies in the very heart of South Bohemian Region, or České Budějovice, also locally monikered as Budějce. Another one being the State Castle and Chateau in Cesky Krumlov of which is under close supervision of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), making it a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Monument since 1992. Similar to any historical monuments, these castles have their respective backstory that has been passed down through generations and is customarily awe-inspiring. Having said that, there exists one castle in this very nation that changes people’s perspective on a downright neutral historical landmark.

Laying on the cliff top of Prague we have a gothic-styled castle renowned for the most infamous motive across paranormal-enthusiasts and experts. Houska Castle established in the 13th century has since inundated locals residing nearby with the darkest of myths and legends possible. Located approximately an hour north of Prague atop a cliff, a rather secluded site almost impossible for residential purposes, what are the odds behind its precise construction?

Peculiarly Structured 

Adventurers of whom are adequately courageous to visit this castle of spook have claimed its attributes as downright out of the ordinary. Pictures displayed across the internet may have it appear just as usual and resemble the construction of any other typical castles. However, for ones who have been there personally, the windows are a complete facade where sturdy walls are built beyond glass panes. In addition to that, the castle does not have ramparts to safeguard amidst invasions; source of water; kitchens; together with the most important element – occupants. This proves a point as to how Houska Castle was established for motives apart from making it a defensive sanctuary or residence. Not only that, as mentioned previously, its location is another aspect leaving people in utter confusion; it seems as though this very castle decided to appear out of nowhere. With zero strategic value for not situated close any trading routes, it is surrounded by thick forestry, swamps, and mountains.

Adventurers who gained authoritative access to enter its interior added that the …

Southeast Asian Witchcrafts And Sorcery

As our lives are modernized by the swift advancement of digital technology, our mindset has since led us to put aside beliefs and superstitions which account for little to no sense. This phenomenon suffices to justify the increasing number of religiously unaffiliated individuals or the “nones” of whom lack stance in religious beliefs, or simply call for no association with any religious groups. While religion is deemed a somewhat important facet of human life, this community has largely overtaken the size of US majority religion. Many counterparts see the need to condemn their disbelief towards the holly divine notwithstanding their entitlement to decide on their intended path. As a matter of fact, many of whom are intensely religiously-minded turned out to be one of the most venomous beings alive. What is the point of having supreme faith when one is still depraved by heart?

Be that as it may, there are still those who value the practices of worshipping and most especially superstitions. 

Superstitions simply put, refers to the blind convictions of supernatural forces with complete disregardment of science and evidence. As a matter of fact, superstitious beliefs vary across cultures thus a hitch in pinpointing a specific definition, but the entire conception indicates accepting and bowing to unwritten rules in which are passed down as heirlooms within a particular cultural group. 

To put this into perspective, a fairly popular belief withheld by the Chinese community for many decades emphasizing how the 14th floor of buildings should be labelled with 13A instead due to the number’s intonation in mandarin resembling that of “death”. The indian community on the other hand, strongly believes in the evil forces an eclipse would bring, they are thereby conditioned to stay indoors everytime amidst an eclipse to prevent any bad matters from arising. 

While most superstitions being not evidently sensible, are perfectly neutral to be upheld because it brings no harm whether or not it is applied in quotidian life; rather, it sporadically helps us stay out of trouble.  Having said that, there exist multiple, if not abundant old wives’ tales that prevail with evil intent, one of which being witchcrafts or sorceries.

Apart from being globally recognized as one of the finest tourism sites for holding a plethora of awe-inspiring beaches and mouth-watering delicacies, little did the majority realize that Southeast Asia …

Red Rooms On Dark Web – A Myth Or A Reality

Our generation may be most competent with the usage of digital technology for it has been widely incorporated into our quotidian life, and the fact that we were born amidst the era of technology advancement makes surfing the net a task not easily avoidable. With that being said, the internet resembles an iceberg in which only the tip is visible to all, similar conception is applicable to the internet; 10% of it has been surfed by users whereas the other 90% are left only accessible to a few. Some may be oblivious as to how this 90% is being administered in such secrecy that regular browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and suchlike) are not given access to. Additionally, conventional search engines are incapable of uncovering the accurate number of active sites running via this hidden part of the web that lies beneath the surface together with their respective locations, because it is simply too massive for the “spiders to crawl through”.

Deep Web Vs Dark Web

While both terminologies are used interchangeably and are similarly hidden beneath the surface, both are established for different undertakings. 

The deep web notwithstanding its affiliation with its dark counterpart, is mostly legal and safe to be browsed through. Some prominent examples of deep web are pending blog-posts and web pages, online banking pages, portals of an organization or learning institution, public and private databases, so on and so forth. Their presences are made confidential to the majority for various reasons, most of which is to protect the very information and privacy of users, and the contents are completely harmless to be accessed by computers. The deep web thereby should not be too big of a concern. The dark web though, is deemed the complete opposite.

At the darkest of web as you are sufficiently proficient to access through, you may end up viewing the most explicit content you have ever laid your eyes on. Though I have never set foot there myself, credible sources like documentaries, journal articles, novels written by individuals of relevant expertise have claimed this very portion of the web as holding a plethora of hazardous content and activity ranging from the trading of illicit goods like weapons and drugs, to gore and child pornography; things we go out of the way to steer clear of. 

The reason making it a paradise for illegal and illicit endeavors is …

The Illuminati – One Of Many Powerful Organizations Who Secretly Controls The World

Presuming you are an all-time enthusiast of conspiracy theories notwithstanding the facts proving them otherwise,  the secret society of the Illuminati must not be unfamiliar to your ears. Do they factually exist or are they a complete scheme? Whether its existence has been backed up by concrete reasonings, it would still be fascinating to learn about its background and the reason why it is placed on the very spectrum of conspired theories

Who Are They And What Are They Thriving For 

The name Illuminati has long been circulating the world and was originally founded by German philosopher Adam Weishaupt back in the 1760s post rebelling against the Catholic faith while granted financial support by the International Bankers. Their greatest motive behind establishment till this very time and day of modern civilization is to achieve a “one world government” where they vanquish all religions and governments in their movement. 

Suppose you perceive this reasoning as too ordinary to precisely satisfy your liking for conspiracy, here is one that packs a punch. It is also mentioned that the Illuminati originates from a reptilian extraterrestrial race of whom interbred with humanity thousands of years ago. They strongly stood with the belief whereby their “center of power” is placed in the lower fourth dimension or some may call it the lower astral, which is too deemed the traditional home to folklore and mythical demons. 

What makes this claim more fascinating is that they affirmed the reason behind most European and American rulers’ perpetual power to govern their nation is due to their belongingness to this very alien breed, and are the Illuminati elites who have been striving for centuries to achieve one-world government. Apart from their obsession to interbreed with one another to conserve their alien genetic structure, they are also mercilessly obsessed with rituals, cold-blooded behaviors, territorialism, together with top-down hierarchical structure or a dictatorship in short.

What Must The Followers Of Illumination Believe In 

Illuminati excludes themselves from labels such as “church”, “religion”, “political group”, “online casino” or “charity organization”; but rather, a group of elites who undertake the mission to prosper the interests of human species in general. There is simply zero necessity for personal worship, morality, or belief. To simplify, the Illuminati does not have a say in their followers’ paths and decisions provided they are relevant with what they preach as “furthering the human species” without …

The North Sentinel Island Tribe

I’ve been toying with the idea of writing this article on the North Sentinel Island tribe for quite some time now because gathering ‘reliable’ information on it has been pretty hard work.

I could just attempt to include all the opinions/facts in this piece but to be honest with you – some of it seems way off this planet (and it is not backed up by any solid fact).

So, I thought I’d keep this short and sweet…and allow the readers of this site to add their opinions on the subject in the comment section below…


North Sentinel Island

So where is North Sentinel Island? Below is the description Wikipedia opens with on it’s dedicated page:

“North Sentinel Island is one of the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. The island belongs to the South Andaman administrative district, part of the Indian union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands”

Most of the island seems to be covered in a blanket of forest and it is surrounded by coral reefs, and lacks natural harbors.

However, it is not a deserted piece of land…


The North Sentinel Island People

The North Sentinel Island people are known as the Sentinelese, they are indigenous to the land.

Experts cannot be sure, but they believe the population of the Sentinelese could reach as high as 400 individuals. The Sentinelese reject any contact with other people, and are among the last people to remain virtually untouched by modern civilization.

This isolation obviously leads to numerous conspiracy theories popping up on who these people are and where they came from originally.

On the 2nd of August 1981, the ship Primrose managed to ground itself on one of the coral reefs leading into North Sentinel Island.

After a few days the crew noticed a group of tribal figures on the beach observing them. On closer inspection they realized that the group of Sentinelese were constructing weapons (spears and arrows) along with boats to reach the grounded vessel.

Full of panic, the captain of the Primrose radioed in for help in the form of a weapons drop so that himself and the crew could defend themselves.

This weapons delivery never came…

Thankfully the heavy seas and rough conditions managed to keep the islanders away from the Primrose. The crew were rescued about a week later by a helicopter working under contract to the Indian Oil And Natural Gas Commission.

The Sentinelese apparently …

The Kikiyaon Monster

There are many different folklore’s among the people of Gambia, West Africa but none as terrifying as the Kikiyaon monster


The Kikiyaon Takes to The Skies

This terrifying beast sort of resembles the African equivalent of the mythical Gargoyle. It was humanoid in shape but it also had the ability to take to the skies whenever it needed to!

It was not thought to be the tallest of creatures – most reports come in at around five feet in height. It had piercing red eyes that shone through the night and long sharp claws on it’s feet.

It sported large dark wings beneath it’s arms and had razor sharp teeth.

The Zombie Maker

I first came across the Kikiyaon monster when reading through a book on zombie activity back in the day.

Apparently this beast has the ability to turn man into a zombie at will by simply consuming his soul!

You see, the name Kikiyaon translates into English as soul eater or soul cannibal – a little worrying really isn’t it?

Many different Gambian tribes are petrified of this creature as they firmly believe it has the power to render any man soulless – basically turn him into a zombie!

The creature is said to have vampire like qualities in it’s bite – it’s how it delivers it’s fateful power. It is thought to creep into your bedroom at night and sink it’s teeth deep into your skin.

Once the teeth have broken the surface of your skin you are doomed to live out the rest of your days as the walking dead.


Deadly

If being turned into the living dead wasn’t bad enough there is an added kick to this creature’s bite!

Once the Kikiyaon monster has sunk it’s teeth the victim will start to display signs of severe illness. It’s thought to be a lot like these zombie illnesses you see in the classic George A. Romeo films.

This illness will progress and get worse until eventually the bitten victim dies…


The Kikiyaon is Near…

Many witnesses have claimed that the Kikiyaon monster can sometimes be spotted travelling at immense speeds across the Gambian plains.

They also claim that it is relatively easy to figure out when the Kikiyaon is near due to it’s horrible smell. A lot of believers put this down to the fact that the Kikiyaon is made up of zombie flesh itself!

A top cryptozoologist named Bernard Heuvelmans looked into the reports and …

The Jim Morrison Ghost Photo

This article will be taking a look at the famous Jim Morrison ghost photo that ended up in the archives of journalist Brett Meisner’s work. Is this a real image of the paranormal, or nothing more than a clever fake?

Let’s take a closer look…


The Jim Morrison Ghost Grave

Most people know of Jim Morrison due to his time as the famous front man to the musical group The Doors, but he was also considered to be a talented American poet.

He died in Paris in 1971 but no autopsy was carried out on his body. Many believe that he accidentally snorted heroin thinking it was a line of cocaine – resulting in a sudden overdose that ended his life.

He was buried in the Père Lachaise Cemetery and his grave remained unmarked for many years. There had been numerous headstones placed over his resting place but mad fans had either defaced them or stolen them completely.

The Jim Morrison Ghost Grave

In the end, Jim’s heartbroken father decided to commission a simple headstone for the grave – it simply reads ‘Against His Own Daemon’ in Greek language.

Journalist Brett Meisner decided to visit the now famous cemetery back in 1997. Once there he got a friend to snap a photograph of him with the famous singer’s headstone in the background.

Many years later, Meisner was shocked to notice that his friend had picked up something disturbing in the cemetery shot…


The Jim Morrison Ghost Picture

Several years after the shot was taken, Meisner was going through his photo archives when his assistant pointed something odd out in the Père Lachaise Cemetery image.

In the background, standing in the doorway of a crypt, is a semi-transparent figure, with his arms held wide.

The ghostly figure seems to be looking down towards the ground area to it’s right. It’s arms are stretched out wide and you can clearly make out a rather loose fitting, white t-shirt.

It’s the pose that captures the imagination of most paranormal investigators – it’s a famous pose that Morrison made during a publicity photo shoot when he was alive (see image at the top of this article).

It’s a fascinating paranormal photograph but it certainly does have it’s skeptics – many people believe that this was a way for the run-of-the-mill journalist to get some publicity for his work over the years.

What do you think – is this famous Jim Morrison ghost photo …

The Dogon People of Africa – The Mystery of The Nommos

In this article we will be looking at the Dogon people of Africa and their astronomical lore that stretches as far back as 3200 BC…

Sirius B

The Dogon people of Africa originate from Mali in West Africa. Many historians believe that the Dogon tribe are direct descendants of the ancient Egyptians – this may explain their mysteriously accurate astronomical lore.

Ancient Dogon traditions tell us that they have always believed that the star Sirius has a companion star. This companion star is completely invisible to the human eye and scientists refer to it as Sirius B.

Way back in the 1930s a pair of French anthropologists named Marcel Griaule and Germain Dieterlen visited the Dogon tribe in an attempt to find out more about them. They were completely astonished when they learned about the Dogon’s ancient knowledge on Sirius B.

How could a tribe as simple as this have known ANYTHING about a star that is invisible to the eye? These people had no idea what astronomical devices were let alone the knowledge to use them!

This invisible star named Sirius B was first photographed in 1970 by astronomers using a very large ( and very expensive! ) telescope.

The Nommos

The Dogon people of Africa have their own explanation for their advanced knowledge on Sirius B. They claim that an alien race known as The Nommos traveled from the Sirius system to land on Earth many centuries ago.

They managed to travel to Earth in a strange ‘ark’ that came spinning down from the skies. The Dogon claim that the Nommos are the ones that educated them on Sirius B.

The Nommos didn’t stop there – they went on to educate the Dogon about our solar system giving them information that the rest of the world was not aware of until Galileo invented the telescope.

Robert K.G. Temple

The Dogon legends were first brought to popular attention in a book released in 1977 named The Sirius Mystery. This book was the work of Robert Temple – an author who firmly believed in the Dogon’s claims.

It didn’t take long for the skeptics to arrive on the scene – science writer Ian Ridpath and astronomer Carl Sagan claimed that the Dogon priests completely mislead Marcel Griaule and Germain Dieterlen.

They reported that the Dogon priests could easily have been educated by western astronomers before the pair of French anthropologists turned up.

But Ridpath and Sagan’s claims don’t …

The Count de Saint Germain

Have immortals always walked the Earth without us really noticing? Is it possible for a person to live forever?

Many ‘believers’ point to the fact that a historical figure known as Count de Saint-Germain is indeed one of these immortal human beings.

His birth is thought to have taken place sometime in the 1600’s but researchers claim that certain evidence points to the fact that he first appeared around the time of Christ.

He seems to have popped up numerous times throughout history and he always appears to be around the age of 45. The last sighting was reported back in the early 1970’s.

Many famous figures throughout history have claimed to have met this strange yet fascinating man – CasanovaMadame de Pampadour and George Washington, to name but a few.

An author named Annie Besant went as far as compiling a genealogy on the man, which seems to indicate he could have been the son of Francis Racoczi II, Prince of Transylvania in 1690…


The Immortal One

The Count de Saint-Germain frequently boasted that he had discovered the secret to eternal life – that he was indeed immortal.

Between the periods of 1740 to 1780, the then celebrity (of sorts) traveled the length and breadth of Europe and never aged a day.

He seemed to be an absolute genius in every subject he took on. He was an extraordinary painter, he spoke over ten different languages and he was a talented violinist (virtuoso level).

He also had a few strange ‘peculiarities’ that witnesses picked up on…

Within days of arriving at a capital city, he would set up a state-of-the-art laboratory, presumably for his alchemy work.

He did not own any bank accounts but at the same time – he was extremely wealthy.

He had a lot of friends wherever he went, and he dined with them frequently, but he would never eat any food in public.

He was also linked to numerous elite societies (the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Society of Asiatic Brothers, the Knights of Light, the Illuminati and Order of the Templars).


Life After Death

Official records point to the fact that Count de Saint-Germain actually died in 1784…but the sightings did not stop there.

In 1785, many witnesses reported seeing him with the pioneer hypnotist Anton Mesmer, in Germany. This led to the rumor that the count had actually taught Mesmer a few dark arts which he applied to …

The Bruce Lee Family Curse

Born into an affluent Chinese family at the hour of the dragon in the year of the dragon, Bruce Lee was destined for greatness. Fulfilling his fate as an adult, he brought the art of Kung Fu to the western world.

In doing so he became the most influential actor of Chinese origin in Hollywood history. Tragically, Bruce Lee died just as he was on the verge of international fame.

Taken far too young, his death has been scrutinised by those seeking a sinister explanation. Eventually attributed to misadventure it seemed the circumstances surrounding his demise were innocent after all.

Some years later when his son Brandon Lee died in the most bizarre and tragic of circumstances the specter of malpractice raised its head once again.

Had father and son really been the victim of tragic circumstances or had they, as many believed, fallen victim to the Bruce Lee family curse?

The Death of Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee died at the peak of his physical fitness and just as he was about to attain international fame. Since his death he has become a cultural icon and the most influential martial artist in the western hemisphere.

Aged only 33, he died on July 20th1973 in the home of an actress due to co- star with him in his next movie. The actress, Betty Ting Pei, claims that Lee complained of a headache so she gave him a painkiller prescribed for herself and left him sleeping on a sofa.

Some hours later when people began to be concerned as to his whereabouts, she tried to rouse him. By this time he was unconscious and could not be saved.

Lee, supposedly had an allergic reaction to the pill he had been given. Strangely he is rumored to have suffered an adverse reaction to the same medication months before but still took the pill of his own free will.

During the post mortem it was discovered that he had also consumed cannabis leaves. According to the coroner, these mixed with the painkiller and Lee’s amazingly low level of body fat, just 1%, combined to poison his system.

Almost immediately the conspiracy theories began. How could such a fit man have succumbed to one pain killer?

Why had Lee taken a pill he knew he was allergic to and why hadn’t Betty Ting Pei called an ambulance much earlier when he …
