2 Million Pounds Coral Castle Created By Single Man Using Pyramid Building Technology


How were pyramids built? Obviously, the easiest answer is by manpower. It is still unacceptable in the mainstream that our ancestors would have achieved the technology more advanced than us thousand of years ago. Or did they receive help from otherworldly beings? Though it is impossible to find out how Giza structures were built, it is undeniable that the limestone structure known as “Coral Castle,” located in Florida, was built by a single man using a mysterious box.

In unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida, the United States, there is Coral Castle, an enigmatic monument that is considered to be one of the most mysterious and fascinating structures of the 20th century.

Coral Castle was sculpted by one man, Edward Leedskalnin, in the early 1900s. Nevertheless, many people find it unbelievable that this 100-pound man, who was just a bit more than five feet tall, was able to move, carve, and manipulate more than 1,100 tons of stony coral.

Edward Leedskalnin was born in Latvia in 1887 and died in Miami on December 7, 1951. He was a Latvian immigrant educated in a family of Freemasons. From 1920 to 1940, with voluminous pieces of limestone, he built Coral Castle, originally known as the “Rock Gate,”

At the age of 26, Leedskalnin was engaged to his 16-year-old fiancée Agnes Skuvst in Latvia. One day before the wedding, she suddenly decided not to marry him, and the reason is unknown. Heartbroken, Leedskalnin decided to emigrate to North America. In the winter of 1922–1923, after allegedly contracting tuberculosis, Leedskalnin moved to the warmer climate of Florida, where he purchased an undeveloped parcel of land in Florida City, which at that time was less inhabited.

Once in Florida City, Leedskalnin decided to build a massive structure that he called the “Rock Gate.” It kept him busy from 1923 to 1936, with the hopes that his ex-fiancé would fall in love with it and with him, too.

The construction itself was developed secretly at night which generated the legend of the flying coral stones. Among the rumors, it is mentioned that some children would have secretly seen that Leedskalnin made the stones float like Hydrogen balloons. He made use of chi energy and a black box and moved the stones as he sang to them.

According to Jose Bulard ‘s biographical text, Leedskalnin claimed that he had unlocked the mystery of pyramid construction by making the stones lighter. The massive long-term effort was the true monument to his lost love, the wife he never had and the heart he left in Latvia. When asked how he was able to achieve his masterpiece by himself, with very little tools and no outside help, Edward had only one answer: “I understand the laws of weight and leverage and I know the secrets of the people who built the pyramids,” referring to the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt.

“You will be seeing unusual accomplishment”, reads the sign at the entrance of the ‘Coral Castle’.

The access door to the castle has an approximate weight of 9 tons, an example of great architectural value. The most surprising feature of this door is that it could be turned or pushed with just one finger and no one could explain how.

In 1945, Leedskalnin published a cryptic pamphlet explaining how he used the laws of magnetism and electricity to achieve his Coral Castle. For a man with only the fourth-grade education and no formal training in any applied science, or architecture experience, the mystery is how he could have possibly constructed over 2 million pounds of coral.

Magnetism and levitation were hinted as explanations for the eery achievement. One speculation of the impossible feat was that he knew how to use electromagnetism to eliminate or reduce the gravitational pull of the earth, rendering the lifting and moving of the stones feasible.

Apparently, Leedskalnin was turning his apparatus to alter (in some way) the structure of the stones. Leedskalnin claimed that all matter was being acted upon by what he called “individual magnets.” He also claimed that scientists of his time were looking in the wrong place for their understanding of electricity and that they were observing only “one half of the whole concept” with “one-sided tools of measurement.”

Canadian researcher John Hutchison claimed to have discovered how ancient sages levitated rocks and changed the structure of metals with energy captured from a vacuum. He recreated studies of Nikola Tesla. The following video is based on the findings posted on his personal blog.

From 1946 to 1956, Professor John Roy Robert Searl claimed to have invented an object calling it “Searl Effect Generator” (SEG) with antigravity and perpetual motion capabilities, in violation of the first law of thermodynamics.

Leedskalnin originally built the monument in Florida City, along the border with the Everglades in the southern United States, but later bought four acres in Homestead, 16 miles away, and permanently built his work there.

A documentary made by writer Joe Bullard notes that Edward Leedskalnin claimed to have built it using the wisdom that had been forgotten for centuries. Bullard wrote the book “Waiting for Agnes” and spent more than 20 years investigating Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida.

At the entrance to the castle, there is a bell that had to ring twice for the multi-ton gate to open. Built with a colossal weight, it used a central point to fix it between two stones, allowing it to rotate with a single finger. When it was investigated what supported this door, it was discovered that it had only a tiny stone of unknown material underneath.

Inside the castle, the tallest stone is T-shaped, like the Stonehenge stones. Bullard believed that by doing so, Leedskalnin was conveying: “The secret of Stonehenge and the understanding of the forgotten secret science.”

The castle is situated on three acres, and the structure itself, consisting of walls 8 feet tall, takes up just less than an acre. It is divided into several sections, including a two-story stone tower where Leedskalnin lived (without running water or electricity). The cramped top floor was his living quarters. The bottom floor was a storage area for his cutting and shaping tools (blocks, tackles, crude winches, and wedges, most of which he made himself), along with equipment for radio wave, physics, and astronomy experiments.

There is a 13-ton, 20-foot-long table, surrounded by 10 chairs, that Leedskalnin carved into the shape of Florida. Besides, there is the stone sundial he used to tell time. There are other stones that refer to the power of the Moon’s effect on Earth and water. Some are shaped like a pool, and another is shaped like a ladder that descends to the water. Even Saturn is reflected in one of his monuments.

In the throne room, there is his 5-ton rocking chair. And next to it there are smaller thrones for Agnes, a child, and a mother-in-law. Fascinated by astronomy and engrossed by the celestial, Leedskalnin also built a 30-ton telescope, which stands 25 feet tall, and focused it on the North Star.
