NEW WONDERS

 

Few people can name the Seven Wonders of the World.

Everyone knows that the Great Pyramid at Giza was one. Some may remember paintings of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, or the Colossus of Rhodes from their childhood. Few realize that Carl Denham introduced "KONG," the Eighth Wonder of the World, to a stunned New York audience. Except for the Giza Plateau, the original seven are all gone without a trace. We at Planetary Mysteries believe that we need New Wonders of the World, or in keeping with the advances of the Human Race, perhaps it should be Worlds?

Time fears the Pyramids and we keep them at the top of the new list, but it is a list that will include the Face on Mars, Fractal Crop Circles, The Wall (BERLIN), the Internet, and JEFF BECK. We invite you all to e-mail your suggestions for this list of New Wonders to us, and we urge you to check out the Ancient ones at least one more time.

Perhaps what will truly mark the passage of the Human Race into the 21st Century is that the New Wonders of the World will have no end.

 

October 2006

Sixteen years and four months after this page went up on the original Planetary Mysteries, Yahoo! (Go Nellie!) is sponsoring a contest to name the New Wonders Of The World.

That alone, may qualify as a wonder itself.

Covered in jewels and passages from the Koran, the Taj Mahal; on April 25, 1968 -- with Paul Horn recording an album in the dome -- was a true Wonder of any world.

We're lucky it happened here.

 

The same can't be said for the Military Industrial Complex, or can it?

BLUE MOSQUE / GREEN ZONE

 

The Chunnel

Svalbard Global Seed Vault

Large Hadron Collider

Web Bots

Princeton Eggs

PARADIGM SLIP
  Failure of mass media; from Noory to Morning Joe, to acknowledge the
reality of the SvalGUARD HAARP test, ensures the success of
PROJECT BLUE BEAM in the future... any day now.
