I am sure you guys are all familiar with Erich von Däniken and the chariot of the gods. But there is another discovery involving this legendary archeologist that has faded away over the years. In 1973 at the height of his fame for his work on the chariot of the gods he told the world about a gigantic tunnel system in Ecuador which he was told spanned the length of the entire content. And within this tunnel system there was a room or a hall that possessed amazing artifacts and books that were made out of metal. Now the native people of this particular area were just primitive Indian tribes with no written languages what so ever. Making people believe that there might just have been an unknown highly advanced ancient civilization that once lived here.
Now since Erich von Däniken was so famous this alleged discovery did make headline news throughout the world. But at that time there was really no evidence at all to support these claims. Now this story centered around a man named Janos, he was the one that claimed to have discovered this tunnel system and the metal library and he contacted Erich von Däniken and showed him parts of this structure. And Erich was just blown away as it did appear to be man made and he stated “The passages all form perfect right angles. Sometimes they are narrow, sometimes wide. The walls are smooth and often seem to be polished. The ceilings are flat and at times look as if they were covered with a kind of glaze. My doubts about the existence of these underground tunnels vanished as if by magic and I felt tremendously happy.” And after seeing this Erich told the world all though he never personal saw the metal library.
Now this story got very famous very fast and a German journalist decided to investigate and Janos told this journalist that he had never showed Erich von Däniken any ancient tunnel system. Now everybody thought that Erich von Däniken was nothing more than a lair, a fraud and his career at least at that time was over. But what’s really interesting about this interview is Janos never said that this tunnel system or this metal library didn’t exist. And in 1975 Neil Armstrong himself went to go investigate and he met up with Janos and Janos did show him parts of this tunnel system as well as many amazing artifacts. Now thanks to Neil Armstrong everybody now believed that Erich Von Däniken was actually telling the truth and Janos for whatever reason was the lair. Then a man maned Stan hall who was also blown away by this discovery started to do an investigation of his own and he uncovered that Janos had never actually seen this metal library. Now after a lot of detective work Stanly uncovered that there was another man involved and this man told Janos about the underground tunnel system and the metal library but he never showed anybody the actual location. And when Janos found out that there was in fact a highly advanced tunnel system he believed that this man was telling the truth.
And Stanly also uncovered that this is why Janos lied to the German journalist as he was trying to protect this mans identity, and also because he was trying to keep this a secret as he wanted to be the one to find the metal library. So who was this other man, what did he know. Now Stanly Hall was determined to find out and it took him almost 20 years but in 1991 he found him and his name was Petronio. Now Petronio told Stanly everything and finally the mystery of this metal library was going to see the light of day. This man told Stan that in 1946 when he was 17 years old his uncle who was a good friend with the local tribe showed him an amazing underground structure and within this structure there was a huge library of metal books stacked on shelves. And within these books there were strange graphs, geometric designs and written inscriptions. And he also found a lot of translucent crystal tablets, huge human statues, tons of sealed doors which he believed at the time were tombs and he also noticed a very large sarcophagus sculpted from hard translucent material containing a golden skeleton of a very large human being. Now this was an amazing sight to see, it was just full of unknown information and treasure and it seemed that this place was built to preserve information. And Petronio believed that whoever built this place was preparing for an upcoming disaster and they wanted their knowledge to survive.
Well at least that is what he believed. Now this 17 year old kid wanted to take some of these metal books with him but they were just to heavy so instead he left his initials in 7 of them to prove to the world that he did in fact enter this site. Now Petronio was a very smart man as he knew that he had no real evidence to back up his claims so he decided to stay hidden in the shadows for all these years and for whatever reason he decided to tell Janos and Stanly about what he saw that day. And Janos spent most of his life trying to find this underground location and Stanley spent most of his life trying to find Petronio. Now Petronio never revealed this location to anyone and we can only imagine why. But Stanly was very persistent and Petronio eventually agreed, he told Stan that he would take him to the metal library. Now Stanly was so excited and while he was preparing for the expedition of the century Petronio got assassinated. Making many believe that other people, very powerful people also knew of this location and they wanted to keep it a secret. And maybe Petronio knew this all along and that’s why he never told anybody where the metal library was.
Now this is one amazing story and if this is true it could change everything. Now it would appear that who ever made this was either extraterrestrial in origin or giants or giant human beings. And this story is almost identical to one of my previous videos about the Bucegi mountain discovery. And also In my last video we talked about a man named Bruce Fenton and his work in Ecuador were he and his collages found huge tools that were just to big for humans. And they also discovered a giant pyramid made out of huge stone blocks and some of these blocks weighed up to 2 tons. And also the tribes throughout this region do say that giants once lived here. And this location is not that far away from these massive underground tunnel systems. Now I personal believe that we might just be getting very close to uncovering this amazing mystery as every single year more and more archeologist keep uncovering more clues about these giants and our past so hopefully it is only a matter of time and one day the truth might just be reviled.
