The Holy Tribunal of the Inquisition in Mexico seemed to have no other choice but to believe Perez's story and subsequently released him from jail and sent him home. When Perez returned to the Philippines he took up his former position as a palace guard, living out the rest of his life in a seemingly uneventful and ordinary way.

An Unsolved Mystery

The story is an intriguing case on the topic of teleportation that has survived over 400 years. Some historians, such as Mike Dash, contend that the incident only appeared in texts a century after it supposedly took place and highly doubt its authenticity. Other sources say the story is credible and there are even documents which can attest to its genuineness that can be found in the archives in Sevilla and Mexico City. Like it was then, it remains today an unsolved riddle in history.

Myths & Legends

For nearly 30 years I have returned to the famous “Sleeping Prophet” Edgar Cayce’s readings as a road map to try and piece together the complex origins of civilization and the creation of Homo sapiens. Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American Christian mystic born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while in a trance state.

Ancient Technology

The calendar is one of mankind’s most important inventions. Calendars allowed societies to organize time for religious, social, economic, and administrative purposes. The calendar, or rather, two sets of calendars, were invented by the ancient Egyptians. One of these was a lunar calendar, which was used mainly for the organization of religious festivals.

Ancient Places

Healing Temple of Aesculapius (Asklepios) by Robert Thom
In the ancient world, many cultures built elaborate temple complexes dedicated to their healer gods - Imhotep in Egypt and Asklepios in Greece for example. These gods were recognized as having the power to cure supplicants from a variety of ailments within sleep and sacred dreams. Those who desired healing might travel many hundreds of miles to reach such a temple
