The Temple of Doom Opens a Portal to Other Worlds
Sam Adams worked at the Cosmos Research center in Berkeley, California. They considered themselves the real “X files” and consulted with governments, corporations, and private citizens around the world. They sent a team to the field to investigate each claim submitted for verification and charged fees for their investigation. 90 percent of the time they uncovered an elaborate hoax. They published their findings on their website,” The Cosmos Institute Investigates – The Truth Is Out There, Out There.”
Most times they published a detailed analysis of the claim and their finding which usually stated this is a hoax. Among the claims that they left “ pending” were Bigfoot, Yeti, Loch Ness Monster, the existence of aliens.
One of the pending cases that intrigued the world was what exactly happened to Sam Adams, James Jones, and Maria Shah? Where did they disappear and was there foul play involved?
Maria Lee the founder of the institute finally had to hold a press conference to announce their preliminary findings.
She was a plain-spoken woman who carried a lot of respect as she used to be with both the CIA and FBI working in their “X Files” shops – which did exist but were secret agencies. She knew a lot of things that she could not talk about.
She had a team of experienced researchers. But no one knew her true mission.
One of her key researchers was Sam Adams. He had been there since the beginning and she knew that he had some suspicions about their work but so far he seemed loyal and trustworthy.
Sam Adams had received a mysterious message claiming that they had found the
location of the legendary Temple of Doom located in the mountains of madness
near the Himalayas. Inside the temple were gateways to other worlds, portals left
over by the ancient Lemurians who had come to earth from Sirius.
Sam Adams organized an expedition to locate the Temple of Doom. They started
in the jungles of the golden triangle engaging some dodgy characters.
It was a hot day and they had to constantly wipe the bugs off their hair, and hats and wipe the sweet off their sleeves.
The bugs gave way as they climbed into cooler mountain climes. The way got rougher as they climbed. They spent the night.
When they got up they found that their local guides had all run off with their supplies, and there were tiger tracks all around the camp and they found the body of James Jones badly mauled but with his head missing.
The next morning they saw the temple at the top of the mountain.
In front of the temple were hung the heads of all their missing party and the head of the tiger who had killed them.
When they got there about noon, giant talking apes stopped them and said
an old monk welcomed them. He gave them a tour of the compound and they came to the gateways. Each was a glass door with a title next to it.
You have come to the gateway to other worlds. Be careful when you go through the gate. Some are one-way gates. You had best go through one at a time and wait for a half-hour, if they don’t return you know it is a one-way gate. I don’t know where half of these gates go. I’ve only been through a few. Narnia is my favorite.
Sam and his party went through the Narnia gate. A few hours later, Maria returned alone and said that Sam and the others had opted to stay. She left with the five remaining staffers and reported back to Maria Lee.
“Well, we found the portals and confirmed the long rumored story that both Oz and Narnia were based on true stories – someone had been there probably CS Lewis and Frank Baum.
We went to Narnia five people three women and two women and found ourselves in a battle for control – the white witch had returned. In the end there can only be two kings and Queens of Narnia and I opted to return to report the success of the mission. Sam left me his official resignation with instructions that his final pay check be sent to his ex-wife.
“That tracks with what our operatives told us , especially that Narnia and Oz existed, but we had to be sure ourselves.”
She and the old monk went out to announce to the world the opening of the ancient gateway to other worlds. He merely said
I have been waiting for this moment for 5,000 thousand years. I am the last of the Lemurians, and was born 5,000 years ago. I am from the planet Sirius and will be returning home through the gateway.
The end or is it?
