Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni
1 Nov 2014
The tomb of the losing side in a Matriarch battle .
1.Neolithic Acoustic engineers used sound and stone for all purposes .
2.The Matriarch Wars .
3.Both sides were expert in Bio-warfare and Acoustic systems .
The Matriarchs more on the bio side , the men on acoustic side .
4.The Hal-Saflieni site would then be more equivalent to a major strategic strongpoint (like Cheyenne Mountain today) for the men .
A major weapons site and fortification .
And they used sound as a weapon and indoctrination tool .
See Appendix A and Appendix B
5. It’s loss was a major defeat for them .
Seven thousand corpses (see Appendix B) , the cream of the crop .
Who knows what happened .
I postulate the release of a fast-acting bio-toxin , most likely from an engineered organism that stored the toxins in separate , harmless forms (eg binary poisons) , that switched on lethality genes at the frequencies of 114 Hz and 68-70Hz , and resonances of these . This gave the men enough time to run , but not to get away .
The victors then sealed the site for 5 000 years until 1902 .
No wonder the locals tried to hide the discovery .
I would have seeded the site with long-lasting spores .
I would not go in there without a level-5 biohazard suit and sound-cancellation equipment .
6. Why those frequencies ?
· Delta wave – (0.1 – 3 Hz)
· Theta wave – (4 – 7 Hz)
· Alpha wave – (8 – 15 Hz)
· Mu wave – (7.5 – 12.5 Hz)
· SMR wave – (12.5 – 15.5 Hz)
· Beta wave – (16 – 31 Hz)
· Gamma wave – (32 – 100 Hz)
6.1 Take 114 Hz = composed of 2x3x19 frequencies . This will stimulate awake and “sleep” at the same time .
The third freq has to be a prime : 2x3x17 =102 Hz will also show an reaction in the Saflieni site .
So should 2x3x23= 138 Hz . Note 136 = 2x 68 a close harmonic .
But 2x3x29 = 174 , above the lowest range for female voices .
Caution is advised . I do not know what range might reactivate some old spores .
The last thing we need is some old bio-horror from the past .
Men chanting at 102 , 114 , 138 Hz should have some interesting results inside Saflieni .
The voiced speech of a typical adult male will have a fundamental frequency from 85 to 180 Hz, and that of a typical adult female from 165 to 255 Hz
6.3 They used it for gender based religious entrainment and programming .
I presume females had the equivalent at slightly different frequencies .
7. Other sites .
7.1 There should be more levels to Saflieni .
It was a major fortress . There should be underground , fortified leylines (ie acoustic channels) leading from it . Even after 5 000 years , they should still be traceable .
See http://andreswhy.blogspot.com/2011/05/click-and-ley-lines.html Quanats lasted longer . Just look for sort of inverse quanats , built for drainage .
7.2 Gobleki-tepe should have deeper levels , so should Karnak and Stonehenge .
7.3 I am not sure about the Pyramids . They were always matriarchal .
7.4 There should be extensive underground ruins in Eastern Europe . This is where the Matriarchy ground to a halt .
But extensive bio-minefields still exist . Be extremely careful at the sites of the old Nazi extermination camps . They were not chosen at random .
High concentrations of psychotropic poisons were , and still are in the ground and rhizomes .
Trot in there with your at 102 , 114 , 138 Hz tone generator at your peril .
7.5 In typical human fashion , both sides of the same species managed to exhaust each other nearly to extinction .
7.6 It should be possible to write an App for a smartphone that will be able to measure any danger still left .
A tone generator , and the poisons should be resonant at certain frequencies as well . The higher ones . Like snakes emit .
Interesting . Snakes would then also have been mine-detectors for bio-mines .
8. Relevance today .
There are some indications that the old war is heating up again .
And the present humans have not the faintest clue about why .
At least , now you know how to write music that is gender specific .
Might as well get a good tune out of all this welt-smertz .
Just when you thought you knew what was going on .
Oh well .
The Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni in Malta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is believed to be the oldest prehistoric underground temple in the world. The subterranean structure is shrouded in mystery, from the discovery of elongated skulls to stories of paranormal phenomena. But the characteristic that has been attracting experts from around the globe is the unique acoustic properties found within the underground chambers of the Hypogeum.
Hal Saflieni Hypogeum is a cultural property of exceptional prehistoric value, dating back approximately 5,000 years and the only known example of a subterranean structure of the Bronze Age. The 'labyrinth', as it is often called, consists of a series of elliptical chambers and alveoli of varying importance across three levels, to which access is gained by different corridors. The principal rooms distinguish themselves by their domed vaulting and by the elaborate structure of false bays inspired by the doorways and windows of contemporary terrestrial constructions.
Although not known for certain, it is believed that the hypogeum was originally used as a sanctuary, possibly for an oracle. It is for this reason that a unique chamber carved out of solid limestone and demonstrating incredible acoustic properties has been called ‘the Oracle Chamber’. According to William Arthur Griffiths, who wrote ‘Malta and its Recently Discovered Prehistoric Temples’, a word spoken in the Oracle room is “magnified a hundredfold and is audible throughout the entire structure. The effect upon the credulous can be imagined when the oracle spoke and the words came thundering forth through the dark and mysterious place with terrifying impressiveness."
It is said that standing in the Hypogeum is like being inside a giant bell. At certain pitches, one feels the sound vibrating in bone and tissue as much as hearing it in the ear. Sarasota arts and architecture critic Richard Storm explained the sensation: "Because you sense something coming from somewhere else you can't identify, you are transfixed."
The acoustic properties within the Hypogeum have already been studied extensively. It was found by Maltese composer Ruben Zahra and a research team from Italy that sound resonates at 110 Hz within the Oracle chamber, and this matches the same or similar frequency that has been found in many other ancient chambers around the world, including Newgrange in Ireland. According to Dr Robert Jahn from Princeton University, it may be the dimensions of the room or the quality of the stone that determines the exact pitch of this echo behaviour.
But the question remains – was it intentional? Was the Hypogeum actually designed to enhance amplification? If so, why? Is it possible that the designers of these spaces knew something that modern scientists are just rediscovering?
One theory put forward by Paolo Debertolis and Niccolo Bisconti of the Universities of Triests and Siena respectively, is that the chamber was constructed in such a way as to created acoustics that would affect the psyche of people, perhaps to enhance mystical experiences during rituals, and this perspective has received scientific backing. Dr. Ian Cook of UCLA and colleagues published findings in 2008 of an experiment in which regional brain activity in a number of healthy volunteers was monitored by EEG through exposure to different resonance frequencies. Their findings indicated that at 110 Hz the patterns of activity over the prefrontal cortex abruptly shifted, resulting in a relative deactivation of the language centre and a temporary shifting from left to right-sided dominance related to emotional processing. This shifting did not occur at other frequencies.
Whether it was deliberate or not, the people who spent time in the Hypogeum under conditions that may have included ritual chanting -- were exposing themselves to vibrations that may have impacted their thinking. In addition to stimulating their more creative sides, it appears that an atmosphere of resonant sound in the frequency of 110 would have been “switching on” an area of the brain that bio-behavioural scientists believe relates to mood, empathy and social behaviour.
Despite the plethora of research on the acoustic properties of the Oracle Room, there remain just as many questions as answers. It is for this reason that the Hypogeum was the key location for the Archaeoacoustics Conference held between 19th and 22nd February. During the event, a multi-disciplinary undertook a challenging and unprecedented experiment. Ultrasensitive microphones were placed in the Oracle Chamber of the Hypogeum and digital recorders were used to test the response of the chamber by different voices and by simple musical instruments which could have been present in the time the Hypogeum was in use (4000 - 2,500 BC).
The results revealed that a male human voice can stimulate the resonance of the structure at two frequencies (114 Hz and 68-70 Hz). The use of a horn and conch shell did not create any resonance at all, while a friction drum produced low resonance. Interestingly, a shamanic natural skin hoop drum created a strong stimulation of resonance by harmonics of the drum at 114 Hz. The response was the same as that produced by a male voice singing 'oooh'. A female voice did not produce the same effect.
While we may never know for certain what transpired within the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum 5,000 years ago, scientists are moving ever closer to unravelling some of the mysteries of this ancient and incredible site.

On the island of Malta is a prehistoric underground megalithic structure known awesomely as the Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni. It was discovered by accident in 1902 when some workers were digging a hole and broke through the ceiling. Oh, and they also found about all clustered near the entrance.
The three-level underground structure is made entirely out of megalithic stones, and was built who knows when. What surprised people even more was when they found out that if the person was standing in a certain spot. But here’s the kicker — the effect only worked if the speaking voice was in the 95 to 120 Hz range, so women’s voices don’t usually generate the same effect.
It gets weirder: If you’re a man chanting at roughly the 110 Hz frequency, the entire temple complex turns into this bizarre trance-inducing room that seems .
Simply put, by merely standing inside that temple complex while someone was chanting in the proper location, you actually . And that’s all we really know about this place. We have no idea who built it or how they pulled it off. All we know for certain is that they had a knowledge of acoustics that is still baffling scientists to this very day.
