Paranormal Ponderings: FTN looks at the legend of the Dropa Circles

February 1st, 2013 by Owen Quinn 1 Comment

Was there a UFO crash in China some 12,000 years ago? Is the evidence the discovery of circular stones with encryptions on them? Is this proof that an alien race called the Dropas visited Earth? And more importantly does a recent video of an alien ship in our atmosphere (below) mean there have come back? What exactly are the Dropa circles?

In 1938 an archaeological expedition went to the Bayankara-Ula mountain range and in a cave they discovered graves. Leader of the expedition professor Chi Pu Twi found within each grave skeletons with large heads and on the walls were paintings of what looked like aliens; short beings with large heads alongside images of the sun, moon and stars. There were lines indicating a brand new solar system which may be the origin of the aliens. But most curious of all were stone discs about a foot in diameter (above) and about one and a half centimeters thick. In total there were 716 of these stones and so began one of the greatest discoveries of our time. The Dropa Stones. Each had a black hole in the centre, with engraved notches and perfect grooves radiating out from the centre where they found hieroglyphics. Each also had a wedge cut from them.

They were stored away and at the end of the 1950s a scientist, Dr Tsum Um Nui, decided to translate the stones. He discovered an amazing story and the name of the aliens – the Dropas. The discs said that they crashed in China 12,000 years ago but the findings were the source of controversy. According to his translation, the local tribes were afraid of the strange beings and hunted them down but soon realized these beings had only peaceful intentions. It is said the Han tribes, although initially fearful, became friends with the Dropa, teaching them how to survive on our world. Their ship was crippled and beyond repair so they had no choice but to make a new life for themselves on this primitive world.

What makes this more compelling is that two tribes still live in that region of the Himalayas, the Dropa and the Han. In a village called Huilong, they are pygmy-like in stature with large eyes that are not of Chinese or Tibetan origins and live an isolated life. Could these people actually be the hybrid descendants of the alien Dropa? Their physical nature is certainly reminiscent of the skeletal remains in the cave. However, scientists have said that toxic water caused the dwarfism. But adding to the story is a book written by Karyl Robin Evans, a British explorer who had his travel dairies published posthumously. He travelled to Huilong and reported that the villagers told him they were descendants from people who came from the stars. However, this has come into dispute as no one can find Evans and author David Agamon admitted it was a work of fiction.

Now Russian scientists became interested in the stones and decided to put them on what was to all intent and purposes an old record player. When they were subjected to the turn table they emitted an electrical charge spurring some to believe the stones could actually send messages across space in a way we couldn’t understand. Electricity in stones? It seems very far-fetched but is recorded as a scientific fact when the Dropa stones were tested in this way. And no one saw this result coming. And the question remained why write the hieroglyphics in a spiral pattern? Even without the elements of the electrical charge it is a compelling story. Aliens that crash land in an ancient civilization and must adapt. Skeletons that no do match any known life form here (apes were ruled out).

Some believe the aliens described here are the same as the Roswell ones. Could they be connected? Is it possible that fellow members of the Dropa species came to find what happened to the lost expedition? What adds to some theorists speculations is that ships have been filmed by the NASA shuttle mission Columbia that look exactly like the Dropa stones. Circular in nature with a wedge cut from them. The footage and only adds to the mystery. As they say, there is no such thing as coincidence and it may well be that a 12,000 year old mystery is about to be solved across the centuries.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the

    Some questions raised by this article:

    What other archeological research was carried out by Professor Chi Pu Twi?

    What other scientific research was Dr Tsum Um Nui involved in?

    How did Tsum Um Nui translate an “alien” language?

    How do we know the stones are 12000 years old?

    Are Tsum Um Nui and Chi Pu Twi real Chinese names or “Chinese-sounding” names made up by westerners?

    The stones peculiar electrical behaviour “is recorded as a scientific fact” . What journal printed these results?

    I followed the Space Shuttle programme very closely, but I am unaware of pictures taken from Columbia showing circular spaceships. Which mission were these taken on?

    I find this whole story to be incredible.
