12 Vile Vortices Revealed

Is the earth mapped out as a giant Icosahedron grid with harmonic focal spots placed at specific equidistant points? Across the globe, there are twelve vortex points which are situated along particular lines of latitude, known as vile vortices. In 1972, a naturalist and paranormal investigator, Ivan Anderson, published the article “The Twelve Devil’s Graveyards Around the World” where he coined the term, “Vile Vortices”. These specific points have been the center of attention for naturally occurring anomalies due to the planet’s natural electromagnetic fields being stronger in these areas than anywhere else in the world. The Vile Vortices are spread equally in 12 parts throughout the Tropic of Capricorn, Tropic of Cancer, and incorporate the North and South Poles.

The phrase ‘Vile Vortices’ comes from the plural form of the word vortex, meaning something regarded as a whirling mass, and the term vile, meaning unpleasant or objectionable. The entire collection of Vile Vortices is suspected to form a geometric figure known as Icosahedron. An Icosahedron is a polyhedron (poly meaning ‘many’ and hedron meaning ‘faces’) which consists of 20 faces.

The most commonly known vile vortices are the Bermuda Triangle, the Dragons Triangle, and the South Atlantic Anomaly. However, each of these twelve geographic areas is credited with its own unique instances of magnetic anomalies and other unexplained phenomena. Perhaps the most famous of the twelve is the Bermuda Triangle, and it’s a known fact that the Bermuda Triangle contains a vortex made up of strong electromagnetic fields which sucks up aircraft passing through the aerial route in the Atlantic Ocean. The Bermuda Triangle is notorious for also mysteriously disappearing passing ships as there have been many disappearances reported. The most famous case is Flight 19, a military training flight where fourteen airmen vanished, and the search squadron which was sent to look for them also vanished, claiming an additional thirteen airmen.

The mind behind the popular theory of Vile Vortices was Ivan T. Sanderson, the founder of the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained, who had an avid interest in investigating plane and ship disappearances associated with the paranormal. In the late 1960s, his attention was focused on twelve areas that were equidistant and were subjects of electromagnetic distortions and reports of unexplained incidents. Ten of the vortices are situated in the earth’s tropical climates; five of them are within the Tropic of Capricorn, and the other five are within the Tropic of Cancer. The remaining two are located at the North and South Poles.

  • In 1973, three Soviet scientists, Vyacheslav Morochov, Nikolai Goncharov, and Valery Makarov, expanded Sanderson’s theory in their article, “Is the Earth a Large Crystal?”, which was published in a Soviet science magazine. They proposed that a “matrix of cosmic energy” consisting of twelve pentagonal plates covers the earth. The article explained that the intersection of any three of these plates possessed abnormal properties such as unique wildlife, advanced prehistoric cultures, and other mysterious phenomena.

    The Russian scientists outlined a planetary grid that built on Sanderson’s twelve Vile Vortices, where they overlapped Sanderson’s icosahedron with a combination of icosahedrons and dodecahedrons analogous to earth’s seismic fracture zones, ocean ridges, and depicted routes used by migratory animals, atmospheric highs and lows, gravitational anomalies, and exact locations of ancient civilizations. However, planetary grid systems date back to the era of Plato (427-347 BCE). Plato postulated that the earth’s basic structure progressed from a series of simple to complex geometric shapes; the cube(4), tetrahedron(3), the octahedron(8), dodecahedron(12), and the icosahedron(20), which are known today in his honor as the platonic solids. He correlated four of the five shapes to elements of earth, fire, water, and the dodecahedron as the earth’s life-giving force, prana.

    While a few experts are pleased to endorse Sanderson’s theory of a handful of locations where unpredictable natural forces are able to affect the planet’s electromagnetic field, others are less willing to believe the deductions of the Russan scientists. Although, there is a unifying agreement that there seem to be specific spots on the planet, like the Vile Vortices, where inexplicable and uncertain electromagnetic fluctuations occur. While the Bermuda Triangle is, without a doubt, the most notorious for disappearing planes and ships, it’s not the only region where some venture off to and are never heard from again.
