The Secrets of Edward Leedskalnin

The following was written by Michael Lawrence Morton in 1998:

There is only one man in the world who, by demonstration, has supported the claim, “I know the secret of how the pyramids of Egypt were built!” That man is now deceased and took the secret with him into the grave. Always sickly, he died at the age of 64 from malnutrition.

Coral Castle was originally located in the town of Florida City.  The site was later moved to Homestead, FL. The site consists of 10 acres completely surrounded by 8′ high coral blocks, tightly constructed without the use of cement between them. Each of these blocks weigh over 20 tons,
Edward Leedskalnin the engineer/builder did this work all by himself even though he was a very small man – 5 feet tall, weighing only 100 pounds. He did not own tall, heavy cranes which engineers use today to construct buildings. He was asked: Why did you do it? ‘Someday, my Sweet 16 will come,’ was always his response. Leedskalnin eventually quarried and sculpted over 1,100 tons of coral into a monument that would later be known as the Coral Castle. Leedskalnin gave polite, but cryptic answers to visitors’ questions regarding his construction methods, which to this day remain a mystery. In spite of his private nature, he eventually opened his monument to the public, offering tours for 10 cents. He was a surprisingly accommodating host, even cooking hot dogs for visiting children in a pressure-cooker of his own invention.

Coral Castle has attracted the international attention of professional construction engineers, astounded and mystified by the apparently impossible achievement of this diminutive wonder-worker. In the mid-1970s, for example, a large bulldozer was hired to manipulate a coral block equivalent to the Castle’s 30-ton monolith; the bulldozer could not even lift it.

Alternative science investigators suggest that Leedskalnin somehow learned the secret of the “world grid,” an invisible pattern of energy lines surrounding the Earth which concentrates points of telluric power where they intersect. It was here, at one of these intersections of Earth energy, that he was supposedly able to move his prodigious stone blocks using the unseen power of our planet. In fact, in The Enigma of Coral Castle, Ray Stoner suggests that Leedskalnin moved the Castle not because it was threatened by an encroaching subdivision, but because a surveying error misplaced the site ten miles from an Earth energy vortex or focal point. In order for the structures to maximize this energy, the entire complex needed to be relocated in Homestead, where the telluric forces were focused.

Bruce Cathie, in The Energy Grid, one of the most credible books on the subject, says “the site of Coral Castle is mathematically related to the world energy grid, as are the other remarkable structures which, however, date from ancient times. Ed Leedskalnin had not moved on to the Florida site by chance. This geometric position was extremely close to one that would be ideal for setting up harmonics related to gravity and light harmonics. The fact that [he] had access to secret knowledge is much more evident in the relationship of Coral Castle to the world energy grid system.”

Stoner says some fundamental conditions must be met before a structure like Coral Castle can be made to function as intended. It must be exactly situated over an energy vortex, aligned with a celestial event or events sufficiently precise to predict their recurrence, constructed in a specific shape, and built with certain materials. Finally, activities at the site may be successfully undertaken only at the moment the celestial events to which it is oriented take place.

Stoner’s prerequisites for particular shapes and building materials are reminiscent of experiments in pyramid power in the mid-1970s, when the precise angles (variants of 15.2 degrees) of the pyramid and its special construction elements (crystalline granite and non-conducting limestone) determined their success. In Using Pyramid Power, James Wyckoff writes,”The ancient Egyptians knew that the shape and angle of pyramids contained a mystical energy force.”

I think this “lot,” upon which Edward Leedskalnin built his wonders, is a sort of “Grid Point Nest” . . . with many ‘Matrix-valid’ Grid Points in relatively-close proximity. This might have something to do with Leedskalnin’s mysterious ability to lift and to precisely place those gigantic stones on the property.

Also; I found in doing the calculations above, that I initially figured the latitude as VERY close to 1/16th of an inch (on the USGS Topo map) below the ‘predicted 1983 NAD’ latitude parallel of 25 deg 30 min 00 sec, which is in fact the precise northern border of this Quad. This initial latitude figure, in terms of seconds, showed on my calculator as 1.234567901 seconds south of the 1983 NAD parallel of 25 30 00. Notice that the figure of 1.234567901 is the Square of 1.111111111 . . . to nine decimal places.

[Note also, here, that I am using a 'scale' of 0.050625 map inches per second of latitude]. The figure 1.234567901 precisely matches my calculated Grid Point Value for Dr. Bruce Cornet’s “Cydonia Face II” on the “Middletown” (New York) USGS 7.5-minute Topographical Quadrangle.

The calculated figure above for the number of W.Giza longitude seconds . . . 41.23807207 . . . is VERY close to a decimal harmonic of the Surface Area On A Sphere (formula) . . . 41.25296125.

I’m thinking that the more “nodal points of resonance” one can find, within relative proximity (of space and time), then the more that can be potentially “done” in that ‘area’ with respect to “tapping or using” that geometry. These “nodal points” would be, for example, decimal harmonics of ‘Matrix-valid’ numbers, including gematrian and gematria-related numbers. Possibly, this would ‘enable’ such things as lifting tremendous weights, or other seemingly “superhuman” feats.

After his death, a nephew living in Michigan, inherited the Castle. In 1953, shortly before his death, he sold the Castle to a family from Chicago. During the take-over, a box of Ed’s effects were found and examined. It contained a set of instructions which led to the discovery of 35 – $100 bills – his life savings.

This amazing claim to know the secret of how the pyramids of Egypt was built was made by a Latvian man named Edward Leedskalnin. He was an immigrant to the United States of America. He devised a way to single-handedly lift and move blocks of coral weighing up to 30 tons each. In Homestead, Florida, he used his closely guarded secret, and was able to quarry and construct an entire complex of monolithic blocks of coral. The weight of a single block used in the Coral Castle was greater than those that were used to build the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt. It took him 28 years to complete his work, which equaled about 1,100 tons of rock.

In the 1930s, a gang of thugs thought Ed had hidden riches. They beat him up and tried to rob him. Ed was shocked at this invasion into his private world. The attack motivated Leedskalnin to move Coral Castle! He picked up every megalith (some stones weighed up to 30 tons) and transported his entire castle. He hired a local trucker, but the driver was always directed to look away as Ed loaded the truck. All 3 million pounds of hard coral was moved 10 miles to its present location near Homestead Florida.

How did Ed move all of these carvings a distance of 10 miles? Ed had the chassis of an old Republic truck on which he laid two rails. He had a friend with a tractor who moved the loaded trailer from Florida City to Homestead. Many people saw the coral carvings being moved along the old Dixie Highway, but no one ever saw Ed loading or unloading the trailer. Ed did much of his work at night by lantern light. He seemed to have a sixth sense which told him when some one was trying to spy on him. The numerous lookouts along the Castle walls will attest to his suspicious nature.

Leedskalnin, had within his castle walls, coral blocks weighing approximately 15 tons each. He built a 22-ton obelisk, a 22-ton moon block, a 23-ton Jupiter block, a Saturn block, a 9-ton gate, a rocking chair that weighed 3-tons, and numerous puzzles, all made of coral. A huge, 9-ton rock that functions as a door and gate is perfectly balanced. One push from a small child can open it. On top of a huge 30-ton block, which he considered to be his major achievement, he crowned it with a gable-shaped rock.

Leedskalnin received attention not only from engineers and technologists, but from the U.S. government, who paid him a visit hoping to be enlightened. None ever were given the secret. In 1952, falling ill, Leedskalnin checked himself into the hospital and died, taking his secret with him.

Leedskalnin's Flywheel

Leedskalnin's Flywheel

Leedskalnin flatly stated that all matter consists of individual magnets and it is the movement of these magnets within materials and through space that produces measurable phenomena, i.e., magnetism and electricity.

If all matter consists of individual magnets, we know that like poles repel and unlike poles attract. We also know that we can suspend one magnet above another as long as we don’t allow either of them to flip over so that the opposite poles attract each other. Magnets seek to attract and, left to themselves, will align their opposite poles to each other.

If a large magnet is suspended over a smaller magnet, depending on the ratio between them, the distance between the magnets would be diminished to the point that the smaller magnet wouldn’t be able to exert enough force to elevate it. The earth, being the largest magnet, issues forth streams of magnetic energy which follow lines of force that have been noted for centuries. If we assume, as Leedskalnin did, that all objects consist of individual magnets, we can also assume that an attraction exists between these objects due to the inherent nature of a magnet seeking to align an opposite pole to another. Perhaps Leedskalnin’s means of working with the Earth’s gravitational pull was nothing more complicated than devising a means by which the alignment of magnetic elements within his coral blocks was adjusted to face the streams of individual magnets he claims are issuing forth from the Earth with a like repelling pole.

A known method for creating magnetism in an iron bar is to align the bar with the Earth’s magnetic field and strike the bar with a hammer. This vibrates the elements in the bar and allows them to be influenced by the magnetic field they are in. The result is that when the vibration stops, a significant number of the atoms have aligned themselves within this magnetic field.

Christopher Dunn asks: “Was this the method that Leedskalnin was using? It’s a simple concept, but looking at the devices in Leedskalnin’s workshop, I can easily imagine the application of vibration and electromagnetism. His fly-wheel for creating electricity remains motionless, for the most part, until inquisitive tourists like me come along and give it a spin. After a few revolutions, I realized that something was missing. The narrative I had heard, while browsing around the castle, described Leedskalnin as using this device to create electricity to power his electric light bulbs. It was claimed that Leedskalnin didn’t have electricity, but I couldn’t imagine this device being a useful and continuing source of power, using only Leedskalnin’s right arm to turn the wheel. On closer examination of this piece, I found that the whole assembly was actually an old 4-cylinder crank case. His flywheel was mounted on the front end of the crankshaft and consisted of bar magnets that were sandwiched between two plates, the upper plate being a ring gear. Giving it weight and solidifying the entire assembly, Leedskalnin had encased the bar magnets with cement. It then occurred to me that the photo of Leedskalnin with his hand on the crank handle, which is attached to the end of the shaft, may not accurately represent his entire operation. It is possible that Leedskalnin was using the crank handle to start a reciprocating engine, now missing, which attached to one of the throws on the crankshaft. He would then be able to walk away and leave his flywheel running.

I was now mystified. I had developed a notion that the bars attached to the flywheel were actually being used to develop vibration in the piece Leedskalnin was trying to lift. This idea didn’t make sense after looking at the type of material, size and weight of the entire assembly. The crankcase was firmly attached to the coral block in his workshop, and even if it wasn’t attached, it would be quite a feat to keep moving it about. There was one factor I needed to check out, though, before I headed back to Illinois. I had tested the bar magnet with a pocket knife. The knife was attracted to each bar. I needed to know, conclusively, the arrangement of the poles in the wheel, to see, indeed, whether the assembly was capable of creating electricity.

Leaving the workshop and absorbing the penetrating rays of the Florida sunshine, I headed for the nearest strip mall to look for a hardware store so that I could buy a bar magnet. North on Route1 I found a Radio Shack. They had just what I needed, and for only $1.75. Feeling rather pleased, I swung back onto Route 1 and returned to Coral Castle.

Once there, I headed back into Leedskalnin’s workshop and put the magnet to the test. I held the magnet a short distance away from the spokes of the flywheel while giving it a spin. Sure enough, I found out what I had come for. The magnet pushed and pulled in my grasp as the wheel rotated. Looking around the room, I gazed at a jumble of various devices, lying, hanging and leaning about the room. There were radio tuners, bottles with copper wire wrapped around them, spools of copper wire and other various and sundry plastic and metal pieces that looked like they had fallen out of an old radio set.

Leedskalnin’s workshop also contained chains, blocks and tackle and other items that one might find lying around a junkyard. Some items are missing, though. Photographs of Leedskalnin at work show three tripods, made of telephone poles, that have boxes attached to the top. These objects, however, are not to be found at Coral Castle. What is striking here, is that the block of coral being moved is seen off to the side of the tripod. Perhaps Leedskalnin had moved the tripod after raising the block out of the bedrock. Though another interesting observation is that the block and tackle that can be found inside his workshop are nowhere to be seen in this photograph. There are spools of copper wire in his workshop, and there were also two wrappings of copper wire. One was round copper and the other flat copper. In a narrative that visitors can hear at various recording stations around the compound, it is stated that at one time Leedskalnin had a grid of copper wire suspended in the air. Looking at the photograph, again, one can see that there is a cable draped around the tripod and running down to the ground. Perhaps the arrangement of tripods was more related to the suspension of his copper grid than the suspension of block and tackle.

I have no doubt that Leedskalnin told the truth when he said he knew the secrets of the ancient Egyptians. Unlike those who have sought publicity for their own inadequate, though politically correct, theories, he proved it by his actions. I believe, also, that these techniques can be rediscovered and put to use for the benefit of mankind. Edward Leedskalnin, right or wrong, had a little bit of a problem with trust. This modus operandi was not unusual for a craftsman of his day. Proprietary techniques without patent disclosure assure continued employment and, therefore, it was perfectly normal that he would protect his secret from prying eyes that might steal and profit from it. I believe there are enough pieces there to put together and replicate his technique. It’s been done once (sorry, twice), and I am sure that it can be done again!”

Leedskalnin demonstrated to neighbors his strange machines. He was able to generate his own electricity. Ed wrote a total of 5 pamphlets; one called ‘Magnetic Current’ is as incomprehensible as Einstein’s Unified Field Theory. He admitted that he could produce anti-gravity and knew how the ancient pyramids were built. He wrote: “A Book In Every Home”, “Sweet Sixteen, Domestic and Political Views” . His “Mineral, Vegetable and Animal Life” contains his beliefs on life’s cycle. He also wrote 3 pamphlets on “Magnetic Current”.

A plaque was found in Ed’s bedroom after he died. It read: THE SECRET TO THE UNIVERSE IS 7129 / 6105195.

    It’s like you’re answering some of my most important questions……
    Please allow me some time to think about it all, and I’ll probably get back to you with more questions.

  2. Can you grant me permission to use information in the paper written by Michael Morton that is posted on your website? I will be doing a presetation about the Coral Castle at the United States Psychotronic Association Conference in July 2010, and am preparing slides. I would like to promote your work.
    Thank you,

  3. Alex says:

    You have my permission to re-produce content from my website in your upcoming conference.
    Let me know how your presentation is received!

    All the best,

  4. Pedro says:

    Alex, I live in Miami for the past 15 years and planning to visit Coral Castle for the first time soon sometime this month. I never heard about Edward Leedskalnin up until recently when I began doing some research on in magnetic fields for one of my projects.

    Most papers I read about the working habits of Edward described his preference for working at night to avoid been seen by other people. One of the reason I believed he might preferred working at night is because heat weakens magnetic fields.

    I had just read the book he wrote “A Book in Every Home” what seems strange to me is how people that knew him described a person that does not correspond to the thoughts he expresses.

    The book’s content in my opinion was written as a metaphor. I found some of his description on human behavior so meticulous and mechanical, that most likely he was referring to his work.

    Some of the things I found interesting were; the similarities between boy, girl to the south and north poles; the meticulous “symmetry of a smile” to the V shape magnet of his alternator. Even his “16” page book, when you think about each page left-text and right-empty you even think on both north and south poles.

    Thanks for posting this article and would appreciate if you let me know a group or site that studies his work.

    best wishes, Pedro.

    Very interesting material.

    I scanned thru Ed’s book on Magnetism, which is an attempt to understand and explain magnetism thru practical experiments, and he extends ‘magnetism’ thru to forces acting on the surface of the earth, due to the earths magnetic field. He pointed out that the magnetic direction of flow and concentration of force were not equal everywhere on the surface of the earth.

    It seems he somehow used magnetic forces which he transfered from his generator to the blocks he wanted to move using induction of what we normally call alternating current, and he also made use of the earth’s ‘magnetic’ forces available at his location(s) in Florida. He used a copper or other metal distribution of energy from the generator, and he also used the normal block and tackle, chains, hoists to move the blocks in conjunction with the magnetic forces.

    Ed considered magnetism and electric current as equivalent phenomena, in terms of how he applied it, he transformed one into the other.

    And also in his book he seemed to carefully consider how an imbalance in these forces occurred at some particular point in the magnetic / induction current circuit.

    That is we (our science of electricity and magnetism) mostly think of the entire set of electrical and magnetic forces in a complete circuit, and that there is a net conservation of force and energy.

    But Ed, somehow knew how to create an imbalance of the magnetic force thru simple electrical machines, relative to the flow of energy thru the earth and this is how he moved the huge blocks.

    That is (I believe) if he found that a particular point on the surface of earth was predominantly north or south, he then used his induction generator to apply the opposing force thru the block, somehow this was enough force plus his block and tackle to move the blocks.

    This defies the common view of the amount of energy flowing thru any bit of non-ferromagnetic mass situated at some point on the surface of the earth.

    But somehow he did it.

  6. more than interesting there are toys on the market that do some of the same things vectron air hog and lifter it would be very interesting to know if leedskalnin ever met tesla

  7. JonnyDeath says:

    I do get annoyed by the suggestions of magical science and using the scalar grid of the earth. It has everyone ignoring more obvious and logical answers that are still very impressive and far more believable.

    It can and should be speculated that Ed found a way to produce electricity far more efficiently and, he was generating a frequency or band of frequencies that tapped into the electrical and magnetic properties of all matter.

    Establish this more logical train of thought and then it’s quite believable that he was able to use coils, radio waves and other basic force principles of science to build coral castle as well as cure his tuberculosis.
    Rife scope anyone?

    I believe the answers are far simpler than proposed and, not nearly as extraordinary as they are effective and unconventional.

  8. bob ruhoy says:

    Forget coral castle at the site in Homestead. He moved all the giant stone carvings from his previous site in Florida City (approx 10 miles away). There is one picture from Florida City showing his crumbling home built of cinder block size stones. Next to it are all of the largest stone carvings lined up in a row. He moved them all to the new site at Homestead. The block & tackle was given to him by a farmer at the Homestead site. My Point — He had nothing at the old site !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Contact me if you have more questions, I’ll have the answers.

  9. Ben B says:

    Hi Bob,

    It would be good to understand how ED.L. accomplished his feat of carving just even the Well.

    Thanks for your help in advance – peace.

    7129 / 6105195

    this as already been solved and explained.

    what i only need to know is if anyone as ever reproduced a 10ton lifting using this method.
    the explanation derives from prime numbers ,prime quadruplets, angles, north and south poles of mgnetism,and the pyramidal force field, i have the knowledge about all this, but i repeat, i only know the theorys, i have not seen it put to pratice, should i be the one doing it???

  11. Jonathan Bollefer says:

    Thank you for all the wonderful information. It is astounding to thing what magnetic forces might be at work here. I am doing some investigative research on the rock gate and am interested in the original papers that Edward wrote on magnetic current. Is it possible to have you send me the copies of these works for research purposes.
    Thanks if you think there is any other pertinent information please email me and I will get back with you asap.

  12. Robert says:

    I would like to say some of the remarks and theories made in this articial are not far from the truth. Ed Leedskalnin did in fact discover a form of anti gravity. I’ve been able to duplicate his feat with ease and I’m amazed at how simple his device was. What Ed discovered has always been known, only science has never paid any attention to it and still doesn’t. I understand why Ed never released his discovery and while I play with my device,( and it is fun) I have no intention of releasing my discovery. All I want to say is…. My hat goes off to you Mr. Leedskalnin. Your discovery is so simple and easy to understand.

  13. Robert says:

    You are so close to what Ed discovered only look at it this way. What Ed produced was an absence of magnetism. When you cancel magnetism, attach that device to an object, that object becomes part of the void. A void netural to both north and south poles. Eds device was magnificent yet simple, and by applying or shifting magnetism from one part of the machine to another it enabled him to move large heavy objects from one place to another. I know this to be true because I’ve done it.

  14. Bowen says:

    I think I have something new on this Ed Leedskalnin accomplishment. I’ve noticed a relationship between his work and Marko Rodin’s. Used Marko’s math and Ed’s clues… I found a 16 bundle Rrodin coil could be made by putting 144 pins around a torus. 144/16 = 9 as far as I’ve found this 144 is the only workable multiple in this way… 144, 288 ect. Maybe Ed had a rodin coil in that magic box of his that he powered with his fly wheel… It seems to make the best sense to me as the Rodin coil is a man made black hole and black holes are gravity wells.

  15. Bowen says:

    Also, I’d like to suggest that matter is just light trapped in a singularity that we call an atom… umm… The inverse square law is a neat one… I don’t think that energy moves in straight lines but rather voxtacies. And since it would be propagating out a force must be propagating in to infinity. This strikes me as a chicken and egg situation, the answer is a simple question. How did the chicken or egg come to be without a rooster? Or in postmodern philosophy how can you define things externally with out an internal definition. both these things are non-sense. you cant have one without the other. It’s called duality.

  16. L.Ron says:

    Can anyone give an example on how to create an experiment to demonstrate ED’s principles?

  17. gabe says:

    this is very interesting, has anyone reconstruction his antigravity machine?

  18. gabe says:

    i’m only 17 but i plan for this to be my life’s work intill i understand and created edward’s device

  19. Chris Hefti says:

    Hi there,
    All of the above statements are somewhat true, I think the answer to all questions is a combination of factors. Wow, i really kicked-in that open door, didn’t i ? I think we have to consider the following: nothing is impossible unless our mind makes it so! For example: in moments of need, despair or if you’re threatened by something bigger than yourself, you will discover that you have much bigger powers than you ever could have imagined (your mind sets the boundries of what is possible) In an emergency you don’t pay attention to those boundries and therefore they don’t exist !) In that state of mind we all can lift a car, we weren’t able to lift before.
    I think we have to combine the technical knowledge with an altered state of mind, get rid of our constricting boundries and matters will become possible !
    And sure I immediatly aknowledge the fact that it is much easier said than done. We all are conditioned to be inadequate, because our teachers are inadequate! We have to leave that state of mind behind and realize we are only using 10 % of our potential !
    We can do anything if we only could set our minds to it!
    Thanks for your inspiring ideas !

  20. Patrick says:


    You say you have produced the same machine that Ed built and that you can manipulate the same anti-gravity effects due to canelling out the magnetism of an object, how long did it take you to discover this and howcome, if it is so easy, none of us here are able to figure it out with all the time we’ve put in to researching it. Could you please give some sort of a clue as to where to start or what sort of materials are all necessary so that as not revealing your secret but still helping others out on the right path?

  21. wilson says:

    I would like to get my hands on the original documents that he wrote.

  22. questions says:

    ok Robert, not to say prove it but really. You can’t just make claims and expect people to believe you. How bout some proof or a pic or plans that would help create such a device or devices. We are in a world where oil is king and dammit I want free energy that I can create. So you dont have to prove it to me becuase I know I will build one of these generators and have fun, but seriously any extra information will help. if not then your loss. Sharing is caring.

  23. Trevon says:

    0 also means nothing or “Void. I punched in 7129/6105195 and it equals zero or “Nothing” which could also mean Neutrons :)

  24. Alex says:

    @ Trevon
    The value for the ratio is 7129 / 6105195 is
    but i take your point that neutrality is where vectors cancel

  25. VIKRAM says:

    All the above are only talking about Ed using supposodely anti-gravity.But
    more important – is to query, cut ,lift and carve these rocks.To cut the rock from ground and more importantly the bottom- how did he cut the bottom portion from the ground? One man with those primitive tools -how did he do it? After he has cut the rock and separated from the ground- then comes the lifting of rocks.Which we all think might be an anti gravity technique.But equally mysterious is the preparation of the rock. Carving,knowing centre ogf gravity of the rotating door.

    Salutes to Ed .

  26. Dennis says:

    Does anyone know if his generator has a ground rod connection under it? It would only link it to Henry T. Moray’s device in so far as to where the power comes from but not how it was used to move the coral. It seems to me that the coral’s properties are linked to tapping the negative energy. I think the pyramids are made of stone for this reason also. It also seems odd to have concrete in the generator -tuning properties?

    Robert – if you do know how to do this and plan to keep it to yourself, I would like to know your reason, out of curiousity. I can think of a few myself.
