Lessons in Interdimensional Physics

"I have discovered the secrets of
the pyramids, and have found out how the Egyptians and the
ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive
tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many
- Edward Leeskalnin
builder of Coral Castle
So declared Edward Leedskalnin, a
Latvian eccentric, who concocted a method of single-handedly
erecting massive quarried stone resulting in the enigma that is
Often equated with the engineering feats of Stonehenge, and the
Great Pyramid of Egypt, Coral Castle is set on a ten-acre tract of
land just south of Miami, Florida. Originally located in the tiny
town of Florida City in the l920ís, the site was later moved to itís
current location. Ed is said to have built the Castle for his "Sweet
Sixteen," a woman from his native Latvia, who had promised to marry
him, and then changed her mind at the last minute.
A feast of coral imagery, the site lies behind massive 8í high coral
rock walls, protecting it from the sprawling, suburban city of
Homestead. The coral walls fit together with amazing accuracy, even
though they were constructed without cement. These technical
accomplishments have astounded, and surprised, engineers and
A small statured man barely weighing one hundred pounds, Ed quarried
one piece of coral from the earth weighing over twenty-eight tons
and then erected it himself! His accomplishments include a rocking
chair weighing thousands of pounds, which can be rocked with a
finger, and an underground structure reached by climbing down a
one-piece spiral stone staircase to a subterranean refrigerator. A
five thousand pound heart-shaped coral rock table, with a red
blooming ixora growing from its center, is believed to be the
worldís largest valentine, according to Ripleyís.
Ed liked to read and would sit in a group of stone chairs which
caught the morning, afternoon and evening light as the sun traveled
over the horizon. Thereís a table fashioned from solid rock in the
image of the State of Florida, complete with a water basin at the
position of Lake Okeechobee where Ed reckoned the governor and
representatives could sit and figure out how to raise taxes.
Much of the site is calibrated to celestial alignments, including an
ingenious thirty ton telescope, towering twenty five feet above the
complex, perfectly aligned to the North Star. A working sundial,
calibrated to noon of the Winter and Summer Solstice, is so accurate
it tells time within two minutes!

An area known as the "moon pond," comprised of three 18-ton pieces
of coral, represents the first quarter, last quarter, and the full
moon. Nearby stand Mars (which Ed believed sustained life), and a
ringed Saturn - each the size of an automobile. An obelisk taller
then the great monolith at Stonehenge, stretches 40í toward the sky,
weighing 57,000 pounds! A series of concentric coral circles is said
to represent the solar system.
"Energy sensitive" people will sometimes report headaches
standing inside the archway of the nine-ton swinging gate, thought
to be over a vortex.
The original site remained in Florida City until the mid
which time the story goes, someone planned to build a sub-division
nearby. A fanatic for privacy, Ed packed up his entire quarry and
moved to the present location in Homestead. No one ever saw him load
or unload the massive tonnage from a friendís truck that was
enlisted to transport the gigantic stones. The relocation progressed
easily and the entire complex was re-erected at its new location.
In total, Ed quarried over eleven hundred TONS of coral rock for his
Castle, using tools fashioned from wrecking-yard junk, never
revealing how he managed to rise, and position, the massive coral
blocks that make up the compound. An air of mystery surrounded his
two story monolith, known as the tower, which housed his workshop
and living quarters which no one was permitted to enter. He was
secretive, and almost always worked at night, no one ever saw him.
Ed seemed to have a sixth sense, with which he could detect when he
was being watched, often the hallmark of an intuitive, or dowser. Ed
"if I concentrate on somebodyís back (while that person
doesnít know it) theyíre liable to get restless, and look around!
Iíve noticed, I can chase the mosquitos away with this concentrated
Originally named "Rock Gate Park" the complex now known as Coral
is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Ed disputed contemporary science and believed all matter consisted of
magnets which could produce measurable phenomena, and electricity.
Ed would say he had "re-discovered the laws of weight, measurement,
and leverage" and that these concepts "involved the relationship of
the Earth to celestial alignments."
He claimed to see beads of light
which he believed to be the physical presence of natureís magnetism
and life force, or what we term today, chi.
An air of secrecy pervaded the Castle. At one time
Ed erected a
massive grid of copper wire poised above his quarried stones.
Another time one of Edís neighbors found him singing to the stones,
with his hands placed on their surface as if he were somehow making
them lighter. A group of youths claim they saw him float coral
blocks through the air "like hydrogen balloons!"
Edís notebooks are laden with schematics for magnetism, and
electrical experiments. Although he possessed only a fourth-grade
education, it seems he had discovered a means to reduce the
gravitational pull of the earth. He wrote a series of pamphlets
which included his theories on magnetism and cosmic force.
Researchers have speculated that Ed learned the secret of
levitation, and one theory in particular caught the imagination of
many. The planetary grid hypothesis postulates that the earth is
covered by an invisible web of energy, which is concentrated at
points of telluric power, the convergence of which create
telluric grid dynamics played a vital role in the construction
of the Castle, according to author Ray Stoner. In his book "The
Enigma of Coral Castle," Stoner speculates that the complex was
originally moved from Florida City to Homestead, not because of
privacy issues (as most historians suggest), but because Ed realized
he had made a mathematical error in his original positioning, and
moved the entire structure to take advantage of an area with greater
According to author
B.J.Cathie, an authority on grid dynamics,
"there exists an all-encompassing global grid with direct harmonic
relationship to the speed of light, gravity, magnetics and earth
mass. All major changes of the physical state are brought about by
harmonic interactions of these manifestations. The controlled
manipulation of these forces would make it possible to
instantaneously move mass from one point to another in space/time."
"measurements from Coral Castle yield harmonics
related to Light and Gravity. The distance between Coral Castle, and
Grid Pole A (in the north), dispel any doubt about the site being an
ideal position to allow Ed Leedskalnin to erect the huge blocks of
coral with relative ease. Measurements indicate the harmonics
necessary for the manipulation of anti-gravity."
Revealed Vortex dynamics in the Andes
Researcher and author, Richard LeFors Clark concurs, and believes
the earth grid is made up of a network of "20 magnetic reversal
points" along which can be found specific sites of anomaly, known as
Diamagnetic Vortex Points.
In his work "Diamagnetic Gravity Vortexes," found in the book
Anti-Gravity and The World Grid, edited by
David Hatcher Childress,
Clark postulates that the area of South Florida at Coral Castle
(considered part of
the Bermuda Triangle),
"is a powerful diamagnetic
"Leedskalnin demonstrated magnetism, and the mechanism
of levitation, by applying the natural Earth Grid principles of
diamagnetism. Leedskalnin could levitate huge pieces of coral by
using the center of mass for the needed slight, uplift, launching
Equating this technique to the same process used in "party
levitation," Clark believes that Coral Castle could no longer be
build where it is today, as the Grid point has shifted to the area
inside Homestead Air Force Base, a few miles away.
Ed Leedskalnin showed every indication of being a natural geomancer
- one who senses the unique telluric forces of the earth. He was
highly intuitive, and knew how to observe nature for signs of
anomaly. This ultimately led him to the discovery of vortex energy,
and the ability to harness the natural elements of magnetism.
He understood the critical nature of identifying the most energetic
location to erect his massive Castle, and seemed to have known the
secrets of anti-gravity, and its relation to cosmic events. Ed
proceeded to develop a means of leverage power generated from the
geo-magnetic grid, and produced a system to generate anti-gravity
waves. Ed Leedskalnin knew exactly what he was doing when he created
his fantastic Castle.
The mystery of Coral Castle was never revealed, in 1951
Ed took his
secrets to the grave. Inspired by his visit to the complex, rock
singer Billy Idol wrote and recorded, "Sweet Sixteen," in honor of
