Coral Castle is a vernacular sacred site -- or roadside attraction; take your pick -- about which i am continually asked. Sad to say, i have never been there and know next to nothing about it. In lieu of a personal, illustrated write-up, therefore, i am archiving publicity material. The following information was sent out as part of a press kit obtained by writing Coral Castle and was html-ized by Judith C. Paulson. There are no restrictions on duplicating, publishing, or distributing this file.

A frail man, weighing not more than 100 pounds, quarried a piece of coral from the earth weighing over 28 tons. He then transported it and raised it, all alone, without the aid of machinery or modern tools.

Edward Leedskalnin of South Florida did just that and much more. He cut, quarried, and raised a castle consisting of over 1000 tons of coral rock and 100 tons of carvings. His creation of Rock Gate, later to be called Coral Castle, ranks with the wonders of our world... with the mysteries in stone on Easter Island and Stonehenge in England. To present day, no one, neither scientist nor engineer, can explain how he accomplished this Herculean project.

B. J. Cathie, a captain flying with National Airways Corp. of New Zealand and author of "Harmonic 33" and "Harmonic 695, the UFO, and Anti-Gravity," looks into the Coral Castle mystery. His well-researched theory is that a vast power grid, governing a whole array of extraordinary and unrelated world phenomena, has been set up "between some groups on this planet and UFOs."

Captain Cathie believes that, "one day, the scientists will no longer be able to turn their backs on the basic precepts of true science. They will have to examine all evidence impartially before they reach their conclusions; and, instead of offering only ridicule, they will carry out full, worldwide investigations into all phenomena related to UFOs and the grid from which those vehicles are drawing their power."

In his writing, he says, "We wonder; couldn't it be that the scientists have the full explanation of UFOs and, for reasons not yet clear, are deliberately keeping the knowledge as a jealously guarded secret within their own closed ranks?" He believes there exists, on our globe, an all-encompassing grid, the interlocking lines of which correspond to the lines of flight of verified UFO appearances.

Once the discovery of a geometric pattern of UFO activity was made, it seemed to indicate a definite purpose in the presence of UFOs about our planetary surface. When the grid was broken down into mathematical coordinates, it was found that all values represented in the grid had direct harmonic relationships with the speed of light, gravity, and earth mass.

When the author correlated the different phenomena, he concluded, "All major changes of the physical state, anywhere in the world, are brought about by harmonic interactions of those manifestations which we refer to as gravity, light, mass, electrical, and magnetic forces. The controlled manipulation of these resonant forces would, in my hypothesis, make it possible to move mass from one point to another in space time (that is, to the eye of a theoretical observer, instantaneously)."

In summation, Cathie says, "Other measurements from the Coral Castle position to the zero-degree and 90-degree longitude lines, when they passed through the equator, also yielded harmonics related to light and gravity. The final check of the distance between Coral Castle and grid pole A in the north, dispelled any doubt about the site being in an ideal position to allow Leedskalnin to erect the huge blocks of coral with relative ease. Measurements from all major points gave the geometric harmonics necessary for the manipulation of anti-gravity."

According to Cathie, it seems Ed Leedskalnin knew what he was doing when he deliberately selected this area for the erection of his famed Coral Castle.

Whether or not he knew the secrets of the Pyramids or, more modernly, levitation, anti-gravity, or the secret of the UFO grid will never be known. His secret died with him in 1951.

Was he a man born before his time or was he a man from another time? Whichever, Edward Leedskalnin was a man whose mission on earth has left monuments for us to ponder, secrets for us to discover, and Coral Castle as an accomplishment worthy of our admiration and respect.

  • The complete texts of the personal, nutty, and extremely sexist manifestos self-published by the creator of the Coral Castle are available from the keepers of the Coral Castle. Here is a short excerpt from "A Book in Every Home," on the subject of Leedskalnin's architectural muse, the idealized virgin-girl he called "Sweet Sixteen":
    "Everything we do should be for some good purpose but as everybody knows there is nothing good that can come to a girl from a fresh boy. When a girl is sixteen or seventeen years old, she is as good as she ever will be, but when a boy is sixteen years old, he is then fresher than in all his stages of development. He is then not big enough to work but he is too big to be kept in a nursery and then to allow such a fresh thing to soil a girl -- it could not work on my girl. Now I will tell you about soiling. Anything that is done, if it is with the right party it is all right, but when it is with the wrong party, it is soiling, and concerning those fresh boys with the girls, it is wrong every time."
