Every time we return to the Kariong hieroglyphs walls, my team and I find more archaeology and information.


From the first time we walked onto country, this has always been a work in motion; a mystery unraveling at the behest of the indigenous Elders and spirits of the land. But even so, what we saw and heard this time was beyond expectation.

The two ‘glyph walls were of no concern to our group on this occasion; instead, our entire team - from the scientific to the intuitive - assembled for 4 days of exploration.


We focused on surveying the immediate area around the ‘glyphs, as well as another location some distance away - about which we had received some promising reports of similar archaeology.



The Embedded Crystal

We started with the shaft system located near the ‘glyph walls in Kariong NSW.


The shaft walls are incredibly straight and artificial in their construction, and there are several large chambers leading off from the main narrow shaft.


For all the sweat expended and dirt collected, we captured a series of high resolution photographs of the inside of the shaft system and began to take its exact measurements.



The metal jewellery that Koa Elder ‘Aunty’ Minnie Mace had previously found near the back shaft (which she later gave to our us) was impetus enough for one of the dedicated volunteers, ‘Dreadful Dan,’ to travel 700 kilometers with his professional metal detector to explore the shaft site properly.


Dan located five metallic objects in the shaft, the last of which had the whole team excited; it was a piece of crystal embedded in metal.

Uncle Reuben Kelly, highly respected Dhungutti Elder, tells us:

“Our legends tell us that we came to this planet on a space ship made of energy. When it hit this atmosphere, it turned to crystal”… and crashed.

Could it be that we have physical evidence of the explosion?


The small piece of metal measures 3 cms (1.2 inches) in diameter, and has a rectangular crystal embedded within it - which leaves no doubt that the metal was molten when the crystal was set inside. Extremely high temperatures were part of its creation, but whatever took place and whenever it occurred, it certainly wasn’t manufactured by the Original people.



Its proximity to the walls, the other metal objects found nearby, and the corroborating accounts given by Original Elders of an alien vessel crashing nearby leave us with three possibilities:

it is either Pleiadian, ancient Egyptian (running a distant second)… or yet another part of a devious and highly elaborate hoax.

Whenever our team is grappling with an issue of ancient Original history, we invariably seek out the advice of our Original mentors.




The UFO Carving

When approaching the subject with Darkinjung Elder ‘Aunty’ Beve Spiers, we steered away from the ‘glyphs - which ‘Aunty’ Beve has always maintained are “not ours” - and their immediate surrounds, and focused on another newly discovered piece of archaeology; an engraving that can only be described “extra-terrestrial”.

Created using the ancient Original method of pecking, not carving, this discovery is clearly thousands of years old.


Notably, it bears a striking resemblance to the UFO hieroglyphs on the Kariong walls, in particular the largest five-legged UFO. But this newly found UFO engraving is much bigger, measuring 352 centimeters (11.5 ft) in height , 190 centimeters (6.2 ft) in width, with the longest of its five legs reaching 167 centimetres (5.5 ft) in length.


The semi-circular top capsule is 150 centimeters (4.9 ft) from the top of the arc to the bottom line and is 190 centimeters (6.2 ft) at its widest point.

What is of particular interest is that all UFO ‘glyphs on the Kariong walls are cut or sharply grooved, and according to Aunty Beve were not made by Original people. But this old pecked image, which is a far more intensive and ancient process, was made by the first Australians.


The only difference this five-legged craft has to the biggest UFO carved on the ‘glyph wall relates not to shape, legs or width but height; the newly discovered engraving shows a craft of two levels or stories, while the UFO ‘glyphs on the walls all depict one-leveled craft.


So when comparing the measurements of the two, we must take into account the deliberate difference in height by doubling the vertical measurement of the smaller craft

The numbers that result are so...

  • The new larger UFO pecking is 190 cms across, the smaller vessel is 19 cms wide and if multiplied by 10 comes out to be exactly the same width as the larger space ship. A horizontal ratio of 1:10

  • The bigger capsule is 150 cms high, while the smaller craft is 7.5 cms. We double the height to 15 cms for comparison with the 2-story pecking. When this is multiplied by 10, we have 150 cms; another identical match match with a 1:20 vertical ratio.

  • The longest leg of the smaller UFO ‘glyph is 8.4 cms. As with the recalibration for the height of the capsule, we must also double this figure to keep the horizontal lines in proportion. The resulting 16.8 cms is again multiplied by 10 to complete the comparisons, with a final figure of 168 cms. The longest leg of the newly found ancient pecking is 167 cms in length; a one centimeter difference but a near-exact vertical ratio of 1:20. Needless to say, our team will re-measure the new pecking to ensure our measurements are 100% accurate, in hopes of confirming absolute mathematics.

Nevertheless... these three comparative measurements share exact 1:10 horizontal and 1:20 vertical ratios, with a combined margin of error of 1 centimeter. The figures depicted are identical, each with five legs, bulbs at the bottom, an upper semi-circle and flat base.


Coincidence? Or a genuine example of Original archaeology?




Original Consultation

After a solid day in scrub, we sat and rested on the verandah at ‘base camp’ and de-briefed.


Still full of questions, we were soon joined by Aunty Beve, who at that stage knew nothing of what we had found that day or where. In perfect synchronicity, Aunty Beve revealed to us the story of star-people coming to this area.

Amazingly, we hadn’t even told her about the UFO pecking yet! And until now, Aunty Beve had never passed any comment on the topic of extra-terrestrials. But according to Darkinjung lore, not only did “they” come, and arrive in distress as Uncle Reuben has advised, their stricken-craft also crashed “in the waters at Bambara” in a location that “wasn’t the ocean.”

It instantly struck me! The huge UFO pecking is located on a small rock shelf more than 20 meters from the shore, overlooking the Brisbane Waters waterway.


Brisbane Waters Waterway

Aunty Beve paused for a moment, searching her mind for the exact terminology for the vessel that crashed in the “waters” - the ancient words which had been passed on to her through countless generations.


Finally - and never did we doubt it would occur - she recalled how the Elders spoke of this event:

“Carriers from up there, that’s it!”

She also made reference to this area being the “beginning place”, as she had done before.


But in learning that the “carriers from up there“ crashed within a few kilometers of the 300 hieroglyphs, we also learn that extra-terrestrial beings and their craft were an integral part of the “beginning place” and its story.




Back to the ‘Glyphs

The Original lore corroborates our translation of the first panel on the ‘glyph wall, which is replete with alien presence, genetic manipulation and benevolent guidance.


My team and I believe it was at this “beginning place” and time that the more ancient non-Egyptian hieroglyphs (which Aunty Beve also spoke of) were first engraved into rock, documenting the “beginning” - and preceding all other languages and writings.

So when leafing through segments of Mu/Lemurian expert Jack Churchward’s soon-to-be-published dictionary of the language of Mu, it was pleasant - but no surprise - to discover the consistent identical matches between Jack’s Mu script and the non-Egyptian symbols on the Kariong walls. Clearly, the two scripts originated from the same extra-terrestrial source.

I reflected on a comment made recently by Bundjalung Elder and Healer Gerry Bostock:

“As on top, so below”.

Then amongst all the similarities was one stand out; the depiction of a wall ‘glyph that my team has examined in some detail.

I have always disputed Dr. Hans Dieter von Senff’s interpretation that this symbol meant “land’s end”, simply because the “land’s end” symbol has no circle, while the ‘glyph in question is enclosed by a circle. I examined the meanings of other known circled and four-armed ‘glyphs, and deduced from context that the symbol must in fact mean “ancient city”.


And Churchward’s book provides an exact match for the disputed ‘glyph, which he translates as “Empire of …”




Collaboration and Verification

Before continuing I need to pause and clarify.


One of the most strident critiques offered by academics to rebut the authenticity of the ‘glyphs relates to the mixtures of styles claimed to be present on the walls, leading many to claim there is more than one narrative or scribe.


My team and I agree unconditionally. Equally we are just as certain that one of these scribes was an ancient Egyptian recording the deeds and words of Nefer-Djeseb and Nefer-Ti-Ru: that is a fact.

When tracing the older testimonial further back in time, it is the more ancient influence and narrative that leads us off into the night sky, and to the possibilities it creates.


We place the Pleiadian presence and genetic manipulation in the highly, highly likely category.


Nevertheless, our extra-terrestrial conjectures should not obscure the fact that ancient Egyptians arrived here no later than 4,770 years ago, and finally departed around 400 years ago.

Our critics invariably take our team to task because of our lack of degrees in archaeology, anthropology or geology. The truth is that our work is extremely collaborative. We are working with some very highly credentialed (and open-minded) academics, who advise on - and vet - all we report and conclude.

In particular, there have been a number of critical observations made by contributors from outside our core team.

A recent example came about through a high resolution photograph from inside the Kariong shaft system, which reveals the clear right angles and straight edges of what Australian researcher Bob Clutton claims to be a door-way. Further exploration of the shaft system will be required to verify this, but Bob’s observation was a welcome starting point for further examination.

But another recent contribution offers a much more intriguing and radical interpretation.


Author and researcher Richard Gabriel sent us photographs of the shaft walls that have been analyzed, filtered and enhanced through NC2 software. What emerged was so graphic and detailed I thought it best to offer no comment until further consultation with Richard.



One of our other advisers, a man highly versed in ancient Egyptian script, has opted to remain anonymous for now.


He informed us that our reading of the newly found set of 13 hieroglyphs was basically correct, but in need of one revealing addition. Our interpretations of “coffin” and “back door” were correct, but the symbol beside “back door” - which was previously unknown to us - represents a “wooden staff”. And not just any old piece of wood!


A staff, engraved with special symbols designed to protect the deceased in his journeys in the after-life, and spells to ward off evil spirits.


Only Egyptian royalty and those directly related to them were allowed to be buried with such a sacred talisman, so the likelihood that Nefer-Ti-Ru, the son of the Pharaoh, was interred somewhere inside the back shaft at Kariong increases markedly.

In our YouTube “Egyptians in Australia Part 2,” (below video) indigenous elder David Fitzgerald (who formerly worked as a sites advisor for the National Parks & Wildlife Service) was very specific in declaring that a protective rock ceiling was there until quite recently, only falling about 40 years ago.








This explains why a segment of this original roof still remains over a 3 meters section of the wall-way, and why the exposed glyphs appear relatively untouched by the weather.

Cements our position on this, I recently received an account of a meeting that took place in the 1960′s from Ram Ayana, the editor of the internet magazine “New Illuminati”; an account that supports David’s claim, and many of our previous conclusions.

All I can say regarding the roof is that on one occasion when I visited the site back in the 60’s, a council worker with a hard hat - he would have been around 50 years of age - arrived talking to an older gent who was searching for the carvings.

The council worker told a story about a bulldozer clearing garbage that had been dumped in the bush when it went through a stone slab that partially collapsed into the narrow cave. He also insisted that the roof was comprised of a number of flat sandstone slabs that had obviously been deliberately laid in place, but that those not broken by the dozer were subsequently broken as well.

He suggested that part of the current rough floor was comprised of rubble from the roof… Close inspection revealed layer upon layer of large lichen growths on the slabs, some of which had grown inside the inscriptions as well.

The account of lichen growth lends weight to arguments regarding the hieroglyphs’ authenticity.


And the use of the word “cave” substantiates our belief there was a complete protective barrier sealing off the engravings, and thus maintaining the original cut until quite recent times.


And while this is undoubtedly a second-hand verification of David Fitzgerald’s testimony, it deserves as much standing as the second-hand account of Alan Dash, former surveyor for the Gosford Council.

Of one fact we are convinced, the newly found ‘glyphs were not made by those who engraved between the walls. The shallower indentation, much smaller sizing (which we believe to be one third that of the 300 glyphs) and the discovery of a basalt and olivite chisel directly beneath the 13 hieroglyphs challenges second-hand claims of ‘deranged‘ Europeans, anonymous students or any other unidentified hoaxer being responsible.


All popular hoax theories are limited to the ‘glyph walls,' make no reference to other locations… and if they did, the work involved would discredit any notion of an idle prank. But I digress…

Of the multitude of star markers in the area, the closest are around 50 meters from the ‘glyph walls.


Found just above the ‘glyph site,' these astronomical markers were charted by researcher and writer Paul White and, through the application of astro-cartography software at Sydney University, were subsequently matched to a 4,500 year old astronomical chart. The engravings are Original, and mark out the time when the Egyptian brothers first arrived at Gosford.

But what of the timing of the many other star markers? And more importantly, why were the Original people so fascinated with the distant constellations?




Three Issues for Consideration

  1. The enormous UFO pecking overlooking Brisbane Waters, the eight UFO ‘glyphs on the hieroglyph walls, and the masses of other Original engravings and peckings spread throughout the region - of which a huge majority served astronomical purposes - raise three issues deserving of further research.

    Why were the Original people fascinated with the stars? The Elders have told us that the Original people only carved what they saw, so why were they so insistent on leaving a visual record of spaceships?


    Leaving aside the constant references to the Pleiades in the Originals’ Seven Sisters Dreaming stories, there seems no other reasonable answer other than - their connection to this specific distant constellation never ceased. Many Original Elders have told us that their ancestors are Pleiadian.


    Could the crash at “Bambara Waters” be the location where this connection began?


  2. The manner and precision evident between the walls is not evident anywhere else in the area.


    The 13 newly-found ‘glyphs are much smaller and a shallower cut. Bundjalung Elder Gerry Bostock assures us the wall ‘glyphs were not chiseled… but were cut with laser.


    Of course, Gerry is aware that laser technology was neither the province of Original nor Egyptian humans, and readily acknowledges that these incisions were made by Pleiadians.


    And a test of similar rock composition leaves us certain the rock would crumble or shatter if you tried to chisel it with a metal blade.


  3. And then there is the mathematical precision required to create a proportionally exact pecking of the UFO ‘glyph - increased by an exact ratio of 1:10 - in the rock platform overlooking Brisbane Waters.


    “Experts” and historians claim the knowledge and tools needed to execute such a precise replication were not brought to this land until Australia’s colonization by the English in 1788.


    But the UFO image created by the Originals is clearly thousands of years old.


    Viewed in isolation, the mathematics associated with this pecking could be seen as purely random, but the repetition of numbers can also be found at other Original sites.





Beyond Kariong

Leaving Kariong behind… our team had received some promising reports of archaeology in another region of NSW, so we convoyed onto country to explore the land.

The first significant site we found was an Original boomerang engraving site, with not one but two boomerang grooves.


One groove is obviously much older than the other, and its edges are relatively worn. The other has sharp and clean edges and was probably used until quite recently. Interestingly, both ‘sharpening’ grooves measure exactly 53 centimeters from edge to edge.

Not far away is a rock circle carving. It has been pecked and engraved but has an almost perfect circular lip with a diameter of 17 cms. The edges create a 180 degree vertical drop to a depth of 17 cms. The base is also 17 cms in diameter.

At another site, we saw two examples of sharp and deep incisions into solid rock; the most striking examples I have seen of a non-natural rock fracture. The cut runs a sharp straight narrow vertical line, turns 90 degrees and continues horizontally, then turns 90 degrees to become vertical again.


The cut measures over 5 meters, and is too straight, sharp and right-angled to be part of any known geological process. But until we receive advice from our highly credentialed geologist collaborator, the photographs of this possible laser cut rock-face will remain secret.

This is a photograph of the second cut. The edges have clearly frayed due to erosion, but there is no sign of any fracturing above the cut.





The rock itself is leaning forward on the edge of a steep slope, so gravity should certainly be encouraging the split to continue.


The cut is at least 15 cms deep but nothing is apparent on the other side of the rock. Being sandstone, which is very easily split once a fracture appears, it would seem the incision has been hardened. and there appears to be some sort of beveling above the top of the cut which ensures the split doesn’t t continue up and open up the rock shelf.

It is our opinion both sites contain evidence of an advanced technology that lends weight to Gerry’s belief that the ‘glyphs at the Kariong walls were laser-cut.

While working in this region, we also found archaeology of a distinctively Egyptian motif. Two large engravings of pyramids, one on a rock platform and the other a rock face. Both are pecked, not laser- or metal-cut, and one has a rectangle base just like one glyph at Kariong.


Interestingly, the pyramids engraved into this location share the same steep angles shown in the carvings at Kariong; much more severe than those found at Egypt.

The angle of the incline has also been raised to contest the legitimacy of the engravings.


But if it is really a hoax, and the angles and shape of both sets of pyramids are almost identical, does that mean the unnamed hoaxer(s) wandered through the countryside with chisel and hammer in hand, carving all the incisions and peckings we have found in NSW?

There are so many questions, coincidences or anomalies! I guess it is all a matter of perspective, but I can’t help thinking the answer is hidden in Gerry Bostock’s comment “as on top, so below.”

Later, researcher Gavin Bragg and Wake Up World founder Ryan Mullins returned from their day’s expedition into the region’s less welcoming territory… with big news.


They had located a large scale culmination of something we had already observed near the Kariong walls; a rock platform of astronomical markers… in immense numbers! Described by both men as “a map of the universe”, the rock platform measures approximately 200 meters by 100 meters.


And although our team is still in the process of photographing and charting out the star markers for further astronomical analysis, the final count of markers is likely to be in the thousands.



So many engravings in the one place, all devoted to the stars!


And all around NSW and back to the Kariong walls, we find the same celestial setting repeated. But so far, nothing has come close to the enormity of locating this astronomical platform. There is no known parallel in this country.


And this find once again has us looking “on top.”




So where to next?

As I stated earlier, this work has always been a mystery unraveling at the behest of the indigenous Elders and spirits of the land.

From the ‘White-fella’ perspective, our work represents one huge inconvenient truth supplemented by a compelling and intriguing possibility. The fact is that ancient Egyptians sailed to Australia seeking mystical wisdom, knowledge of the Original word and insights, and were not alone in doing so. Many others came, and left when requested, with one recent tragic exception.

Then there is the ‘what if’!


The evidence of extra-terrestrial involvement is already strong, and - stay tuned - there is more to come! It seems extremely likely that the Homo Sapiens/Pleiadian was created in Australia, and most probably somewhere near Gosford. But for now we will await further guidance from our Original mentors.

Whatever unfolds, it is apparent that our ancestry is not as we are lead to believe. I believe we are indeed galactic citizens, and are obliged to behave accordingly - by seeking the truth of our origins.

As it was in the Dreaming, and will be again.

“As on top, so below”.



Post script
We had a big mob involved in our recent expedition.


After a blessing from the land’s Original custodian, our team of 16 people descended into thick bush-land in 42 degree heat… real hard work, and all on a volunteer basis. We found much more than I have described today, including further proof of an ancient Egyptian presence in Australia (the evidence count now sits above sixty!)


For more details of our team’s findings, check out our latest YouTube segment “Egyptians in Australia Part 6” (below video) as well as our previous updates, Part 4 & Part 5.
