The Gulf of Aden mystery

We are delving again into the water to explore events of the early 2010’s. Well, they apparently started a little earlier than that, but we will explore that in a moment.

In this piece we will look at the Gulf of Aden mystery.

There is a little bit to this, information on it is hard to find and spurious at best.

However, the part of me that wants to let my imagination run wild had to explore it further.

Where is it?

The Gulf of Aden is a deep-water gulf between Yemen to the north, the Arabian Sea to the east, Djibouti to the west, and the Guardafui Channel, Socotra (Yemen), and Somalia to the south.[1]

Its surface area is around 410,000 km2 (160,000 sq mi), the average depth is 500 m (1,600 ft) with its maximum depth 2,700 m (8,900 ft)[2]. So, we can see why it is called a deep-water gulf.

What happened there?

A basic summary is that around the year 2000 American scientists noticed a vortex in the Gulf. Now apparently, they were present in the area as they had set up a post-9/11 task force base in Djibouti. It was monitored and remained relatively stable. In 2008, this began to change.

Documents, that are reportedly correspondence between Vladamir Putin and Admiral Maksimov (head of Russia’s Northern Fleet), were leaked by Wikileaks in 2010 on the subject. The basis of the correspondence was that the vortex was growing and with it creating odd seismic events and unusual Global weather patterns. Around this time, under the cover of fighting Somali pirates, a Global task force, of sorts, was created. This included, Royal Australian Navy, Belgian Navy, Bulgarian Navy, Canadian Navy, Peoples Liberation Navy (China), Royal Danish Navy, French Navy, German Navy, Greek Navy, Indian Navy, Islamic Republic of Iran Navy, Italian Navy, Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, Republic of Korea (South Korea) Navy, Royal Malaysian Navy, Royal Netherlands Navy, Pakistan Navy, Portuguese Navy, Royal Saudi Navy, Russian Navy, Republic of Singapore Navy, Spanish Navy, Swedish Navy, Royal Thai Navy, Turkish Navy, British Royal Navy and the United States Navy.

That is a lot of force for some pirates!

What is the vortex?

There are a few explanations of what the vortex is or could be.

Basically, they range from inter-dimensional portal, star-gate, weaponised use of the ocean by extraterrestrial entities and natural (but unknown) phenomenon.

There is another — fake sun hypothesis which I have pieced together, but I will save this for later.

In the Russian leaked correspondence Admiral Maksimov describes the vortex as, “inter-dimensional” or “extraterrestrial”[3]

What we know is that around the time of the expansion the areas was hit with scores of earthquakes, which is unheard of in the region.

Also linked to this vortex were extreme weather events in the UK, Germany, Sweden, China and the USA. All related to storm and cold weather activity.

Interestingly, still occurring in 2018 in a region, tangently located, were a series of seismic waves, that scientists have no solid explanation of. They were described as unusual due to their, ‘…monotonous, low-frequency ring…”[4].

So, could it all still be happening?

The artificial sun theory

A theory, that is only found in dark corners of the web, whispered about, which may detract from its credence, but which is why I like it so much, is the artificial sun theory.

It goes that governments? Possibly Korea, or Germany, developed an artificial sun and chose to test said sun in the Gulf of Aden. Possibly due to its isolation (although 21000 ships a year use it) and the vantage points for observation surrounding it.

The sun was set alight in the area.

What happened next is the cause of the earthquakes, the vortex and related global problems.

The brightness and power of the light woke something long asleep beneath the waves and it was hungry.

A couple of things.

Germany has been using an, ‘artificial sun’ for clean energy research since around 2017[5] and more recently (2020) Korea managed to create an, ‘artificial sun’ that burnt bright enough to allow some form of fusion[6]. So, this technology is not science-fiction.

Also when night fishing a common strategy is setting out lights to attract smaller fish from the depths, which in-turn attract larger predators that would not usually be close to the surface.

Is this what happened here releasing a monstrous beast from the depths on a larger scale?
