What is the Hollow Earth Theory?
The Hollow Earth theory or hypothesis proposes that our earth is hollow
and that intelligent civilizations with advanced technologies, live in it. It is believed that this inner world is connected with the earth's surface by a
hole in the North pole, the northernmost point on earth, lying diametrically opposite the South Pole (Antarctica) and a hole in the latter. These
are known as the (Northern and Southern entrances)

The hollow Earth theory can be traced back to ancient periods of
the history of human civilization. Ancient wise men believed that there was
a whole underground world with its underground creatures living inside the planet. It may seem to many that it is only a primeval and naïve perception
of the structure of the world.
Edmond Halley in 1692 put forth the idea of Earth consisting of a hollow shell
about 800 km (500 miles) thick, two inner concentric shells and an innermost
core, about the diameters of the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury.
Atmospheres separate these shells, and each shell has its own magnetic
poles. The spheres rotate at different speeds. Halley proposed this scheme
in order to explain anomalous compass readings. He envisaged the atmos-
phere inside as luminous (and possibly inhabited) and speculated that
escaping gas caused the Aurora Borealis. Source. Wikipedia.

In Ancient Greece, there was a myth about Tartar - the ominous underground
world. Philosopher Anaxagoras (5th century A.D) built a model of creation
made of the flat earth surrounded by the air sphere and the cloud of ether.
He wrote about the existence of the parallel world with its people, cities and
even celestial bodies. If planet Earth is the center of the universe, where do
these people live? Do they live under the ground?
Hypotheses about the existence of hollow space inside planet Earth appeared
later as well. The theory was put forward by Galilei, Franklin and Lichtenberg among others.
In 1818, John Cleves Symmes showered the US Congress, universities and prominent scientists with messages, in which
he was trying to prove that the Earth was made of several concentric spheres with openings near the poles.
Soviet academician V. Obruchev put forward a hypothesis about a giant meteorite that rammed into Earth in primeval times. According to him, the meteorite may have broken through the planet's crust and created hollowness inside.
US researcher Cyrus Teed said that the surface of the Earth might be the interior shell of a sphere. The theory became
known as "concave hollow Earth" hypothesis. According to this theory, we all live on the inner shell of the Earth.
In our modern age
It seems that scientists find more and more evidence to prove the existence of parallel worlds. Physicists at Stanford
University managed to calculate the hypothetical number of universes that were formed as a result of the Big Bang.
According to them, the Big Bang created 101016 universes. It is quite possible, though, that they may exist inside one
another, including our planet. Therefore, there is probably another Earth hidden inside planet Earth.
