mysterious and beautiful monument to a lost love.
Was it possible for one man to build a huge structure that
would be difficult work for a team team of experienced builders
to accomplish? Did this mysterious builder re-discover the
secrets that ancient civilizations used to build Temples,
Pyramids and Stone circles? How can huge rocks weighing several
tons each be moved and placed by one man who was 5-ft tall
and himself weighed only 100-lb?
These are the mysteries of Coral Castle, location: Homestead
Florida. The story goes that Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin
was a heartbroken man. His one true love canceled their wedding
just one day before the ceremony, leaving Ed deeply saddened.
It was this traumatic loss that drove Ed to erect a fitting
memorial to his lost love. And so began the construction of
Coral Castle in 1920.
The Castle consists of towers, megalithic
moons, fountains, a "rock gate" and many other strange
and mystical structures, all made from the strangely appealing
coral, which in some cases is up to several feet thick. There
is a 28 ton Obelisk inside the castle walls which are themselves
8 feet tall. No-one knows how Ed managed to maneuver the huge
rocks into his Castle, he didn't have access to modern machinery
and what tools he did have were rather primitive. Ed himself
hinted that he knew secrets that have been lost in the mists
of time, and his knowledge of magnetic forces of nature is
what helped him single-handedly complete this feat of human
mysterious secrets of Edward Leedskalnin.
Edward Leedskalnin died in 1951 and
took the secrets of his construction techniques with
him to his grave, but in the years since his passing
many people have pondered on how he could have achieved
what he did. Here are some of the theories put forward:
- Some local people say they saw
Ed place his hands on the huge rocks and start singing,
this levitated the rocks.
- Alternative science investigators
claim Ed learned the secret of the 'world grid'. An
invisible path of energies encircling the globe that
can be utilized if the secret of harnessing them is
- Some have suggested that Ed was
able to "turn-off" gravity for his own benefit.
Hence he could make the Coral rocks weightless and
easy to move.
These theories seem outlandish, so
what did Ed himself have to say about how he achieved
his work? Well despite not giving the world a 'live'
demonstration of how he lifted the huge rocks, Ed did
try to explain in his own words how he did it:
"I understand the laws
of weight and leverage....I have discovered the secrets
of the pyramids. I 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 tons."
Ed flatly disagreed with modern science,
and claimed that the scientists were wrong, 'that nature
is simple.' He believed all matter consisted of individual
magnets, and it is the movement of these magnets within
materials, and through space, that produce measurable
phenomena, magnetism, and electricity. 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 nature's
magnetism and life force, or what we term today, Chi."

monument to one mans lost love, and we are left with lots
of unanswered questions. If you want to learn more about Edward

WRITINGS OF EDWARD LEEDSKALNIN.
Ed Leedskalnin wrote several booklets which he sold to
tourists as they marveled at his structure. One of them,
called "Magnetic Current" is available to read
online at the link below. In it he reveals the results
of two years of experiments with magnets. And Perhaps
he reveals his secrets of levitation
