Nunca Les Olvidamos!

El ingeniero escocés Stan Hall - abajo, en expedición con el explorador Juan Morícz en 1975 - nació en Edimburgo y creció en un pueblo cercano, Dunbar, poca distancia del lugar de nacimiento del famoso conservacionista, John Muir.


El 1945, las noticias cinematográficas sobre las ciudades destruidas en todo Europa y los campos de concentración le empujó a apreciar el concepto que existe en el mundo, en todo el sentido de la palabra, dos tipos de personas - constructores y destructores!


Junto con sus estudios universitarios y una carrera interdisciplinaria en la construcción, investigó la ingeniería antigua, las civilizaciones, y la mito-historia, concluyéndose que América del Sur es la página perdida de la prehistoria, y que el catastrofismo es el eslabón perdido entre el Evolucionismo y el Creacionismo.


Expedición Cueva de los Tayos 1976

En 1976 Hall catalizó una expedición destacada a la Cueva de los Tayos en el Ecuador oriental que se involucran una docena de instituciones científicas, fuerzas armadas de Ecuador y Gran Bretaña, y con la participación del profesor astronauta Neil Armstrong como Presidente Honorífico.


Después instalando esta estructura científica, Hall dirigió su atención a la publicación de Erich von Daniken sobre una supuesta biblioteca metálica descubierto dentro de las cuevas por el investigador Juan Morícz durante los medio-sesentas, algo tan asombrosa que no podría racionalizarse dentro de los conceptos ortodoxos de la historia global.




Pronto Hall empezó una odisea al corazón de las enigmas universales, como el proceso de la Creación, el origen de la humanidad, la Edad de Saturno, la destrucción de Atlántida, Cattigara, ciudad perdida de Tolomeo, los crecimientos y derrumbes bruscos de las civilizaciones doradas, los impulsos auto-destructivos, o 'lemming factor', inherente en la psique colectiva de la humanidad.


Todos estos unificados con su revelación del Catastrofismo Interplanetario como el eslabón perdido de toda esta cadena - una cadena que ahora incluye la biblioteca metálica del perdido Imperio de Tahuantinsuyu del América del Sur.





Tayos Gold Library
The Odyssey of Stan Hall
Architect of the Tayos Caves Expedition of 1976

Lest We Forget!

Scottish engineer Stan Hall, was born in Edinburgh and raised in nearby Dunbar a few doors from the birthplace of conservationist John Muir. As a nine-year old In 1945, newsreels of blitzed cities and concentration camps opened his mind to a vision of two kinds of people in the world – in every sense of the words – builders and destroyers!


In parallel with university studies and an interdisciplinary career in building he explored ancient engineering, civilizations and mytho-history, concluding that South America is the 'missing page of prehistory' and 'interplanetary catastrophism' the missing link in the Creation – Evolution controversy.

"Senor Hall! Forget Erich von Daniken and his Gold of the Gods! The best story is in you and if you ever decide to write it I will help you!"
Juan Morícz (1923-1991)

"We shall save it ... because there is no longer the sight of the Book of Counsel ... There was once the sight of it, and it was written long ago ... Great was its account and its description of when was finished the birth of all heaven and earth ..."
Book of the Popul Vuh, Edmunsen translation, 1971


Tayos Caves Expedition 1976

In 1976 Hall catalyzed a landmark expedition to the Cave of the Tayos in Ecuador involving a dozen institutions, joint special forces, and astronaut professor Neil Armstrong as Honorary President and participant.


With a scientific framework installed he later turned to Erich von Däniken's report of a metal library allegedly found in the caves by Juan Moricz in the mid-1960s, something unacceptable within an orthodox view of global history and absence of any ancient script in South America.

Neil Armstrong: a second small step



So began a personal odyssey to the heart of global enigmas – the Creation process, origins of mankind, the Golden Age of Saturn, the destruction of Atlantis, Ptolemy's lost city of Cattigara, the sudden rise and fall of wonder civilizations, and the subliminal 'lemming factor' inherent in the collective consciousness of Mankind – enigmas he found unified by Interplanetary Catastrophism as the missing link of prehistory, part of a chain that now includes the metal library of the vanished South American Empire of Tayhuantinsuyu!

The question

  • We asked: In July 1969 , the crew of Apollo II left an instrument on the moon called a "Lunar Laser Ranging Rectro Reflector Array"... basically a 2 foot diameter mirror. What was (is) its purpose?

    With thanks to all who replied to the above question (only one person got it wrong).


  • Answer: for measurements of the Moon's orbit around the Earth to unprecedented accuracy... Unlike the other scientific experiments left on the Moon, this reflector requires no power and is still functioning perfectly ... (Abstracted from a submission by plw12752anderson 28.01.2007)

You are now invited to send your answer to the following:

Question: What single global cause do you think could anciently link the following recorded events?

  1. The Sun standing still on Mt. Gibeon (Hebrew)

  2. The halting of the Sun in its path (Chinese)

  3. The Sun not setting for 10 days (Chinese)

  4. The Sun standing still on the horizon (Mexican)

  5. Gods trying to make the Sun disappear (Japanese)

  6. The whole world becoming dark (Japanese)

  7. The Sun not seen in the sky for 5 days (Peruvian)

After separate odysseys with Moricz and another key protagonist Hall broke his rule of rejecting any treasure, monster or UFO that cannot be dragged up to his front door, or that Steven Spielberg can replicate, by finally accepting the Tayos metal library and treasures had to exist!


Packed with scientific and historical information but lacking an ancient script in South America he distilled from mytho-history a model of the origins of the Solar System and Humanity that might accommodate the metal library... and a more astounding 'crystal' library that accompanies it!

Following the deaths of the two key protagonists in the 1990s Hall became sole custodian of the treasure story.


Realizing such a fantastic tale could never stand on its own he developed an Optical Relativity model (see Grailscope) to effect an empirical distillation of data gathered since 1974, finally emerging with two non-fiction and two fiction manuscripts covering his analyses and discoveries. These will be published in 2006 to mark the 30th Anniversary of the 1976 Tayos Expedition.

General Description of the Treasure of the Tayu [Tayhuantinsuyu]

  1. A library consisting of thousands of metal books on shelves, each weighing about 20 kilograms, pages stamped on one side with ideographs, geometric designs and inscriptions.

  2. A second library of hard, polished, rectangular, translucent plates, each with parallel, encrusted channels, laid on gold-leafed trestles.

  3. Hundreds of zoomorphic and human statues, some on heavy plinths, representing various species of animals and insects, also humans in different positions displaying a variety of emotions.

  4. 'Metal' bars of various shapes, together with toys and piles of alluvial gold.

  5. Instruments for making buttons and jewelry.

  6. Sealed doors (possibly tombs) covered in semi-precious stones.

  7. A sarcophagus of translucent material containing a large, gold-leafed, human skeleton.


The Treasure of the Tayu and Manuscripts of Stan Hall


"Señor Hall! We are the only legitimates in the Tayos story!"
Petronio Jaramillo A.

Here is the story of events that impelled Stan Hall to organize in a record 18 months from idea to completion an expedition of 100 soldiers and scientists from a dozen institutions into the Cave of the Tayos in Ecuador, accompanied by astronaut professor Neil Armstrong as Honorary President and participant.


Also included is his unique record and analyses of rival claims about an alleged metal library and other fabulous treasures concealed in the Tayos caves by an astounding civilization!

Hall develops a long-term relationship with Juan Moricz, whose claim in 1969 to have found the metal library was sensationalized in Erich von Daniken’s ‘Gold of the Gods’ published in 1972. When Moricz dies in 1991 Hall meets with a mysterious missing person in the story, alluded to by Moricz though not by name. During six years of questions and collaboration, Ecuadorian citizen Petronio Jaramillo A. is absolutely accepted by Hall as the true source and custodian of the treasure story.


They fill gaps in their separate trajectories to complete the picture. Hall is then entrusted with the details of an enormous treasure, including a metal library of thousands of volumes - also a second library of hard, polished, transparent tablets that cannot be scratched with a knife, its existence here disclosed for the first time!

When Hall is in Britain in 1998 initiating the plan for an official 'expedition of occupation', he receives by telephone the sad news from the mother of Petronio that he has been assassinated.


With the passing of Juan Moricz and Petronio Jaramillo, the treasure trail might have disappeared. However, despite an agreement, to safeguard both families, that Jaramillo would not pinpoint the treasure until an expedition was in the field, Hall decides to combine the information from Petronio with his interdisciplinary background and field experience to determine its precise location.


Working alone, burdened with long, hard years of operating in Ecuador and evading fringe elements, he finally decides the best course of action is to directly publish on the world-wide Web.

"The 'Iron Ring' forged by astronomers, historians, evolutionists and creationists, based on an erroneous identification of the star Sirius for the planet Venus (Egy: Ast or Aa-set) at the helical rising in 1321 BC, combined with a rejection of the mytho-historical record of interplanetary catastrophism and electromagnetism, guarantees a cyclical repetition of the errors of history!"
Stan Hall

Tayos Expeditions 1969 and 1976

The British-Ecuadorian Tayos Caves expedition of 1976 was essentially a scientific extension of the 'Moricz Expedition 1969' and the 'Moricz-Hall Stones Expedition' of 1975.


Below are photographs of some of the locations and participants, including astronaut-professor Neil A. Armstrong, Honorary President of the 1976 expedition.
