Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer,

And He that formed thee from the womb:

I am the Lord, that maketh all things;

That stretched forth the heavens alone;

That spread abroad the earth by Myself;

That frustrateth the tokens of the impostors,

And maketh diviners mad;

That turneth wise men backward,

And maketh their knowledge foolish;


Isaiah 44:24-25

Table of Contents




      An anomaly is something that deviates from the normal reality and is outside the scientific explanation. A phenomenon is a fact or event that exists in time and space that defies accepted scientific explanation. These phenomena are really a special portal in the fabric of our reality that let us perceive what existence truly is. We try to understand what we see and sense by applying the scientific philosophies we have been taught. For the past fifty years our scientific instruments have outstripped out ability to understand what they are measuring, detecting, and “seeing”. Over the past 100 years science has changed from a classical Newtonian model of the universe to a relativistic Einsteinian approach to finally a quantum mechanical approach with subatomic particles and quarks making up matter. All of these approaches are based on a matter-oriented theory of existence, the idea that matter is the dominant thing in the universe, that the interaction of all forms of matter, from molecules to particles, cause and explain the world we live in. Over the past forty years the list of unexplained phenomena have grown to a substantial number in all the major fields of science. The question is: When will their house of cards come crashing down around their square caps, forcing a new philosophy of science to emerge?

      In the 1968 motion picture, Planet of the Apes, we see man returning to a future earth.  The apes have evolved and man has devolved. If viewers of the movie thought that evolution was the theme of the movie, they missed the most im­portant point. The film was showing how ignorance is institu­tionalized in politics, religion, and in higher education.  The elders of the apes knew there was something past the “forbidden zone.” They knew that there was a more advanced civilization before theirs and it was not descended from them. To keep control of the masses, certain thought processes had to be repressed.

      Mankind’s institutions have been just as kind to us as apekind’s institutions were to them.  Only certain kinds of thinking or non-thinking are rewarded in our world.  There is no financial reward in thinking creatively.  There are financial rewards for thinking “properly.” “Properly” is the way we have been taught to accept.

      So the question I pose to you is: Why did I write a book about some gravitational anomalies on the west coast of North America and why are they important? Most of them are tourist oddities operated by small families attracting a dozens of tourists daily. All claim the “shrink and grow” phenomenon and all have a crocked two room shack built on them. Critics would say: So what is so special about an optical illusion? The definition of an illusion is: a misleading image presented to the vision. The answer is these are not illusions and time changes dynamically inside these gravitational vortex anomalies. Their importance is they prove that the traditional explanation for gravity (the general theory of relativity) is wrong!

      What is wrong with the “accepted” philosophy of science? The foundation of our scientific theories of existence are based on a matter-oriented theory of existence. Matter is the dominant thing in the universe. I believe this is the fundamental error our society has made. It is leading to a dead-end in scientific thought. The only other alternative for explaining the workings of the universe is that information is the dominant thing in the universe. The information, from another dimension, creates the matter world we live in.

      My first philosophy of science book was Reality Revealed: The Theory of Multidimensional Reality written in 1977. As far as I know, it was the first time in history anyone had presented an information theory of existence and applied it to many of the phenomena in our universe, including what causes the ice ages, polar reversals, mass extinction’s, creation of new species, great flood, and other events all happening at the same time geologically.

      With this book I wanted to choose a narrowly focused phenomena that the average person could go see for themselves, experience, test, and photograph. After that they could read my explanation using the Theory of Multidimensional Reality and decide for themselves.

      I investigated four sites during the week of June 1 to June 9th 1996. They were the Oregon Vortex in Gold Hill Oregon, Magnetic Hill east of Rohnert Park, California, the Santa Cruz Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz, California, and Confusion Hill in Piercy, California. We were at each location for one day except for the Oregon Vortex, where I stayed there for an extra day. Chapter 1 covers the scope of the experiment and what I was looking for. Chapters 2 through 5 cover the results from each location. Chapter 6 goes into an in-depth explanation of the Theory of Multidimensional Reality that explains the phenomena observed. In Chapter 7 I explain what mechanism is causing these strange phenomena.

      The first thing I that should be done is explain to you what the traditional explanations of gravity are and what some of the important equations are. This is so you can identify for yourself what theory makes sense and what doesn’t.

Traditional Explanation of Gravity

      The classical definition of gravity, as presented by Sir Isaac Newton, is that gravity is proportional to the mass of an object or planet and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of the two objects or planets. Newton presents two propositions in the Law of Universal Gravitation.

      1.   There is a power of gravity pertaining to all bodies, proportional to the several quantities of matter which they contain.

      2.   The force of gravity towards the several equal particles of any body is inversely as the square of the distance of places from the particles.

      The law is expressed by this equation F = Gm1m2/d2, where m1  and m2 are any two masses, d is the distance between the two objects, F is the force of gravity between the two objects, and G is the universal constant (6.670 x 10-8 dyne cm2 gm-2).

      In the early part of the twentieth century (1916) Albert Einstein developed his General Theory of Relativity which incorporates his theories on gravitation. He assumed that gravity is a physical effect produced by the curvature of a four-dimensional space-time, with the fourth dimension being time. Where Newton had four index tensors or vectors to describe the curvature of space-time, Einstein uses ten tensors of Riemannian’s space-time geometry.

      The important thing to remember is with both approaches gravity is due to mass. Height or size is directly proportional to the gravitational field the object is in. With the General Theory of Relativity, time slows down and objects get smaller when they are in the proximity of a strong gravitational field. The shrink and grow phenomenon found at all three gravitational vortexes have been explained away by saying that there is some large meteor or metal mass buried down below. All three attractions have reported greater than a 7% size change in their vortexes. Such a size change would represent a mass of such great density or size that it is implausible such a body exists in the geological areas where these attractions are situated. I will show, using the results of the experiments that the traditional theories of existence do not explain what gravity truly is, and what is going on in these gravitational vortexes.

      The scope of this book is not to demonstrate the field equations of the General Theory of Relativity or to try to calculate the size and density of a mass necessary to create the observed effect. I just want the reader to understand that traditional science philosophy cannot explain the observed phenomena at these locations and if they are genuine, then academia, society, and most importantly—you must decide: Do the traditional philosophies of existence fall or do we continue to hide and ignore these very special phenomena? If society chooses the latter, they are sticking their heads in the dirt, as man did in the dark in  thinking that the flat earth was the center of the universe.

Gravitational Vortex Anomalies of the United States

      Listed below are all the gravitational anomalies we know of in the United States. I have tested only the four mentioned above. I have not tested the others and, therefore, I cannot authenticate their genuineness. Their distribution throughout the United States will enable readers to travel to these sites and do their own testing and make up their own mind. Some of these locations are not commercial attractions. Some are just a stretch of road such as Magnetic Hill, California. These locations I have place an asterisk (*) next to. Chapter 1 covers the experiments, procedures, and equipment, so you can duplicate the same experiments and see if you get the same results.
