The World's Largest Sink Hole?
Looking at the above map you can clearly see that the California Central Valley is a long depression. It was formed eons ago by subduction, IE sinking into the Earth. In the article below we first ran into this story that California was riddled with under water caverns that were filled with water and some that had oil or gases on top.
In our search for the "Porous Earth" we have already uncovered hundreds of miles of subterranean cave systems that literally are found under every nation on Earth. Now in the report below it details the caverns from a US Navy point of view... and coincides with our other research on the Submarine base at Hawthorne Nevada and the report below supports that study. We then started on a hunt for some real geological evidence, which we will present below...
The Underground Empire - Branton -- File No. 008
In March of 1980, John J. Williams, a New Mexico "Patriot" who published the anti-Communist oriented "REBEL MAGAZINE" (at the time available from: Consumertronics Co., c/o John J. Williams. Pres., 2011 Crescent Dr., P.O. Drawer 537., Alamogardo, NM 88310) revealed some incredible details on an alleged subterranean system which the Navy had been exploring below the western United States. The report appeared in issue No. 6 of his magazine, and was later reproduced in the Fall, 1985 (#164) issue of SEARCH Magazine, at the time edited by Marjorie Palmer, widow of the late Ray Palmer. The article, titled 'CALIFORNIA FLOATS ON OCEAN?', revealed the following:
"Some time ago, I heard a man on a TV interview-show briefly mention that parts of California and neighboring states are floating on the Pacific Ocean! He was a high ranking Naval officer on a top- secret nuclear submarine that has been (and is) exploring and mapping these enormous caverns and passage-ways underneath the West for over 10 years now.
"A friend of mine finally tracked the man down. He is now living quietly in retirement and asked that no details pointing to him be revealed as he does not want publicity and government attention. After writing this article, I destroyed my files on him. This is his story..."
Williams explains that not "all" of the areas in question are actually "resting" or "floating" on the ocean, however there are allegedly many subterranean cavities below the western U.S., and they are not limited to California, and many of them consist of very large water-filled aqua-systems. These have been explored via nuclear submarines to several hundred miles inland, particularly in the region of southern California and the southern Oregon - northern California area. Williams continues:
"...When he retired several years ago, in spite of about 10 years of intensive Naval study, the Navy had not gotten even a handle on their exacts and dimensions. Today, the story may be different.
"He makes the following statements from his observations:
"1. The passageways are labyrinthine with widths from a few
to thousands of feet (caverns), averaging roughly about a 100
"2. Much like dry caverns do, heights and depths vary a
great deal and in some cases, two or more caverns or
passageways pass over or under each other at different
"3. Most of the entrances lie just off the Continental Shelf
(ie. in the Continental Slope - Branton).
"4. Most of the entrances are too small for submarine
investigation; and many that are large enough lie in waters
that are too deep.
"5. Some of the caverns (in S. California) are topped with
oil while some others are filled with gases believed to
approximate our atmosphere (in very ancient times).
"6. The San Joaquin Valley is essentially a portion of the
original cavernous area that collapsed eons ago due to it's
"7. What is being passed off as the 'San Andreas Fault' are
large, unsupported chambers that are in the process of
collapsing. When the BIG ONE finally hits, many scientists
in the know believe that most of California will break off
like a cold Hershey bar and slide into the ocean! (it is
postulated by some that an ancient land-mass which some
believe may have been connected to what is now California,
broke off and sunk into the ocean during an ancient cataclysm
"8. (We are deleting this section due to the possibility of
undue stress and fear which may result from it's disclosure.
Also, because of recent international events which may have
resulted in a solution to this problem. We will merely state
that it involves a scenario similar to that which was
portrayed in a James Bond movie, and which concerned
underground caverns, silicon valley, nuclear weapons, and the
San Andreas fault - Branton).
"9. A WELL-KNOWN U.S. nuclear submarine lost its way in
these passages and disappeared forever. It was reported to
have been lost IN OPEN SEA ELSEWHERE to keep the American
people in total ignorance and to justify an enormous pay-off
to an eccentric U.S. billionaire (who died in recent years)
for providing the fictitious "recovery" effort.
"I have no reason to doubt the man. I can't tell for sure whether or not these caverns and passageways exist or to their extents. The story does sound a bit fantastic but I have no reason to doubt the man. I have seen copies of documentation that at least prove that he was a high ranking Naval officer (nuclear submarine duty) and a distinguished scientist. In fact, his scientific background and reputation are impeccable. He definitely cannot be labeled as a crackpot, lunatic or publicity-seeker. I would very much like more information on this topic..."
