it's widely accepted that the ancient Egyptian city of Tanis was flooded by the Nile around the sixth century A. D. So all we really know is that Tanis was a city in Egypt, but the myth of Tanis actually begins much earlier. What if the ancient Egyptian city was named after the myth? And not the other way around. What you need to understand is that as far as human history is concerned, the tennis of the Egyptians is brand new. That's Carl Adams, a historian and religious studies professor at Oxford University. This interview was recorded for an episode of Pacific Northwest Stories from 1999. Way back when we were on terrestrial radio for a documentary exploring three mysterious places the Bermuda Triangle, Easter Island and Atlantis. The producers decided against including Professor Adams interview in that show because they were unable to confirm the veracity of the content of that interview, basically, they were unable to find any corroborating evidence to support his claims about Tanis. If you know where to look. Tanis has been there from the beginning, the Bronze Age, Ancient Greece Rome, the Aztecs and Mayans. There is mention of Tennis in the first compiled gospels that would eventually comprise what we now call the bible and as mentioned again in the Dead sea scrolls. Although some of those sections have yet to be released for public study. So tennis is a city sometimes, maybe, but not, that's it. I don't understand. It's not an easy thing to understand. Tennis is something else deeper and more fluid. Some say tennis is the location of the Garden of Eden. Others described Tanis has got him or herself. It's been called Gaia. Or if you believe robert, Barron and joseph Durham. Tennis is actually the Holy Grail. Sometimes tennis is a place. Sometimes it's a concept. Sometimes it's even a person. The ancient Egyptian city was named to honor Tanis, the mythic legend, not the other way around. Sometimes tennis is a person or God or as one Egyptian high priest was convinced a cat, so nobody knows exactly what tennis says. I don't believe you can say that. Why not? Because in every recorded mentioned concerning the myth of tennis, there are comin through lines What kind of through lines? Well for one tennis moves, it seems to migrate every 400 years or so and it changes. It's kind of hard to explain the many facets of this myth without serious study. I'm starting to get that sense when it comes to tennis. They say you always know it when you see it. Even if by that point it's too late. Thank you to Cristina Raines and Alex Regan who produced that segment for allowing us to share it with you on this show. Professor Adams claims that Atlantis was actually an avatar for Tanis, active for about 400 years before sinking into the ocean. In fact, an ancient sumerian, the glitz for the words Atlantis and Tanis are almost identical and perhaps even more telling the sumerian symbol for Tanis predates Atlantis by at least 10 years. Professor Adams went on to describe other possible incarnations and other potential cultural references and then he started talking about the feeling and fear associated with the Tanis myth itself, an overwhelming sense of religious awe or a soul shattering for boating depending on who was telling the story. According to Professor Adams, reading of the ancient texts, some say tennis is evil, a dark pocket of mind altering terror and pain. Others say tennis heals completely, body and soul. But all reports appear to agree on one thing, when you experience Tanis one way or another, you are forever changed. Mhm.

So repetitious lee left an old phone books and stories told over decades via classified ads. I'm talking about whispers in the dark, standing next to a stranger waiting for a subway train in the middle of the night. One word Tennis. The hebrew story of moses discovered floating in the Nile river from exodus is usually located Tanis. However, historians agree those stories are most likely spiritual allegories as no supporting archaeological evidence has ever been uncovered.

some stories have layers history, detailed recorded mass sightings, grainy videos, blurry photographs and countless witnesses are these stories with their multiple firsthand accounts years, decades and sometimes even centuries of so called evidence more likely to be true? Sometimes we come across something different, a genuine mystery, something that appears to have no recorded history, no website and no public record at all, something uniquely strange and mysterious. This is one of those stories. Mhm. The City of Pasadena has a long and colorful history. The name Pasadena means key of the Valley, and the area was part of the Mexican land grant in 18 43. From its early roots as a haven for teetotalers, a recovery resort and a Citrus growers paradise, Pasadena flourished. A number of colorful characters made their homes and fortunes in the area. But perhaps nobody was as colorful as Jack Parsons, a rocket scientist to move to Pasadena from Los Angeles. As a young boy, it was Parsons interest in science fiction that led him into rocketry, and by 1941 he had founded Aerojet to sell technology Parsons himself had developed. At the time, Parsons was living in a large ornate mansion on Orange Grove Avenue. Oh, and there's one more thing. Parsons was the leader of the Ordo template oriented Alistair Crowley's brand new religious movement, the religion known as the Lima. The Lima had another infamous member living under the same roof pulp science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard after Parsons and Hubbard allegedly failed to summon the goddess Babylon to Earth. And after Hubbard again allegedly made off at Parsons Life Savings and his wife, Parsons continued his work in rocketry until his controversial death in 1952. The police ruled it accidental. A people who knew Parsons at the time of his death suspected assassination. There are a lot of interesting angles to explore there. So what is this story about? Well, this story is about a mystery. Yeah, and Jack Parsons, part in our mystery, wasn't revealed until decades after his death, when some of his writings and poetry were published by a small magazine in San Francisco. That magazine was called Strange Worlds. Parsons writing really wasn't unique or remarkable in any way. His stories were too personal, barely sketches, really, and his poems were simple but not simple. In an elegant way. Hubbard was the writer in the mansion, not Parsons. But one thing Parsons did do better than Hubbard. Better than almost anybody, if you ask those who knew him was research. Parsons was a paper trail Elizabeth Selander way before anyone had dragon tattoos. Un remarkable short story called Where's Tanis? Was the fourth story credited to Parsons in that magazine. It was written in the second person, and it was short, almost reading like a documentary sketch. It was certainly the most poorly written and sorely lacked cohesive narrative structure. But that's short story is the entire reason we created this podcast.
