There are a number of areas across the world known to be energetic hotspots – from ancient megaliths to Ley Lines, these areas are often alleged to produce hyper-dimensional gateways. While we don’t exactly know how to open a portal to another dimension, there is evidence the phenomenon could exist. And now it seems science may be catching on to the possibility.

Typically, portal areas have some type of electromagnetic significance and are located near large deposits of quartz or other minerals with piezoelectric properties. So, it came as less of a surprise when NASA announced in 2012 that University of Iowa physicist Jack Scudder, found hard evidence of portals created by the interaction between the Earth and Sun’s magnetospheres.

These portals are extremely volatile and unpredictable, opening and closing in the matter of an instant. But Scudder found markers, called x-points or electron diffusion regions, which allowed NASA probes to locate and study them.

Thus, launched the Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission, or MMS, which mapped how two celestial bodies’ magnetic fields connect, disconnect, and explosively transfer energy, subsequently opening portals.

For now, only electrons have been observed to travel through these portals, generating auroras and the occasional magnetic storm near Earth’s poles. But this discovery could be the key to uncovering the function of some of the legendary portals on Earth that are said to act as gateways to other dimensions.

The inter-dimensional portal has long been a device of science fiction, but it also finds its place within myriad ancient cultures. According to Freddy Silva, throughout history we’ve slowly lost our connection to the Earth, but in times of antiquity people were able to naturally distinguish energetic fields and hotspots across the land.

Our ancestors identified particular places considered energetically anomalous, and in these areas, one finds either a succession of temples or a temple that has withstood the test of time. Silva points to a number of gothic cathedrals built on grounds originally identified by Pagans as being sacred.

These energetic locales are considered sacrosanct because they represent areas where our inner temple – the mind – is able to access higher states of consciousness, connecting with extra-dimensional entities or invoking out of body experiences. Whether these areas always represented dimensional portals for the mind, or a portal for the physical body is up for debate.

Graham Hancock references the many stories of native shamans traversing planes of consciousness through the use of psychedelic substances such as ayahuasca. Within this ecstatic state shamans report meeting teachers and guides, who provide advice and wisdom for living within the everyday realm of our existence. But Hancock also says he believes it is worth considering that there maybe something otherworldly to these portal areas; something beyond materialist comprehension.

One location seeming to fit this description is Puerta de Hayu Marca in Peru. Situated on a plateau just off the western banks of Lake Titicaca, Puerta de Hayu Marca translates to the Gate of the Gods. Reaching 23 feet in both height and width, Hayu Marca appears to be a doorway to nowhere carved into a rock face in a remote area known as the Valley of the Spirits, or Stone Forest.

Gate of the Gods, Hayu Marca, Peru.
Legend has it that when Spanish conquistadors came to Peru to loot the Inca’s gold, a priest named Amaru Meru used Hayu Marca as a portal to escape. Meru allegedly placed a golden disk, known as the “Key to the Gods of the Seven Rays,” into a socket in the centre of Hayu Marca’s carved door, opening a portal and allowing him to walk through the stone never to be seen again.

Hayu Marca rests on a Ley Line, upon which the famous Gate of the Sun at Tiwanaku also lies in neighbouring Bolivia, along with several other important Incan archeological points.

Visitors of Hayu Marca have reported noticeably unusual energy fields there, with some saying they can feel pulsating energy emanating from the rock when placing their hand in its centre. Many who have reviewed the ancient site online mention this feeling of elevated or intense energy there.

Lake Titicaca nearby was revered by the Incas and considered to be the birthplace of their civilisation. It is also the deepest lake in the world, rumoured to contain a lost city and a plethora of treasure looted by the Spanish. In 2000, the lost temple of Atahualpa was discovered deep below the lake, adding to the mysterious nature of this ancient culture.

In more recent lore, a man named Jose Luis Delgado Mamani was said to have rediscovered Hayu Marca in 1996, astonished by what he saw. The gateway of the gods looked familiar to him, as he had seen a similar threshold in his dreams with pink marble. Mamani knew instantly this was the same vision from his reveries.

“When I saw the structure for the first time, I almost passed out. I have dreamed of such a construction repeatedly over the years, but in the dream the path to the door was paved with pink marble, and with pink marble statues lining either side of the path. In the dream, I also saw that the smaller door was open and there was a brilliant blue light coming from what looked like a shimmering tunnel.”
Was Mamani contacted by Amaru Meru, the legendary figure who once passed through the stone doorway of Hayu Marca?
If you talk to most string theorists they’ll tell you its likely we live in a multi-dimensional universe.In fact, many string theorists believe that beyond our three-dimensional reality (four if you include time), there may actually be 10 or 11 different dimensions, all potentially with their own unique law of physics and chemistry.

Michio Kaku likens this to a fish swimming in water; to the fish, you can swim up, down, left, or right and everything within your body of water is your universe — your reality. But what if a human lifted you up out of the water? All of a sudden you’re in a new dimension, being held by a being breathing without gills and living outside of the water — an entirely new chemistry of living. This being is also moving without fins and walking on solid ground — a new form of physics, different than your own.

And though there are some similarities between these two worlds as far as the laws that govern them, i.e. electromagnetic energy and gravity, there are vast differences. Similarly, there may be multiple dimensions beyond our own, of which we can only observe certain signs – quantum signs that don’t seem to fall into a unified theory of explanation, based on the dimensions we’re capable of observing.

According to the Randall-Sundrum Model, developed by Lisa Randall and Raman Sundrum, we might live in a space that contains a warped and gravitationally heavy fifth-dimension known as the gravitybrane or Planckbrane.  This theory explains why gravity is the weakest of all the fundamental forces, while also allowing for the possibility that we exist on one of these branes, unable to see reality on the surface of another brane. Unless there was some kind of portal…

Could it be possible that a confluence of electromagnetic events occasionally opens up a portal into one of those other dimensions or onto the surface of another brane? Could this have anything to do with all of the ephemeral paranormal phenomena that are so seemingly ineffable?

Randall plans to test her theory through use of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, but whether it will allow us any insight into the possibility of inter-dimensional travel by way of portal, is up in the air. For now, we’ll just have to continue to study the areas our ancestors marked and unlock the codes they left behind.
