Inexplicable Hole in Lake Defies Nature

In the bone-chilling deep-freeze of northern Minnesota,
there are dozens of lakes and one deepening mystery.
Smack in the middle of North Long Lake, surrounded by
eight miles of ice thick enough to drive on, there is a gaping black hole nearly a half-mile long. It is a lake within a
frozen lake - a huge crescent of open water that, for
some reason, refuses to freeze over. "I've never seen anything like it," said lakefront resident Joan Rush, standing
on her back porch as clouds of steam rose from the hole.
"I don't go out there," she said, "I just stay here and watch." The hole first appeared last winter, and returned this
year. Since then, more than a dozen snowmobilers have fallen in. One died.
Local authorities ordered an investigation, and have spent $10,000 trying to figure out why this section of the lake
seems to defy the forces of nature. Divers with cameras probed the 20-foot depths looking for currents and seismic
activity, but found nothing unusual. A team of scientists have tested for just about everything, but still have no idea
what is causing the phenomenon. "It's uniformly warm from the bottom to the top, surprisingly so. That's what's
keeping the lake open," said scientist Alan Cibuzar. "I have never seen anything like this." Since the black hole
opened up last year, it has frozen over only once. Not in sub-zero temperatures, but on a balmy 40-degree day.
North Long Lake Dive Yields Nothing

North Long Lake dive yields nothing but more attention so far. The mystery of the two-acre hole in the ice on North
Long Lake is getting deeper and pulling more people in. On Jan. 8, divers from the Minnesota School of Diving
studied every aspect of the water from the lake bottom to the thin sheet of ice on top under the watchful gaze of at
least four TV stations, three newspapers, two news helicopters and one small plane. All for a hole in the ice. To
date, the Thirty Lakes Watershed District has spent approximately $6,000 studying the hole, with no conclusions...
"People love a mystery," Finé said. "We all recognize that we're very blessed to have what we have and we want
to take care of it. Obviously something that we don't understand is going on." Unlike some who believe the hole
appeared randomly, Finé has talked to local residents who began noticing a "squishy" spot on the ice in the 1980's.
"Whatever's going on has been going on for awhile," Finé said. "It may have accelerated, though." [...]
While no definitive cause of the "black hole" on North Long Lake has been determined, there are some popular
scientific theories. Mike Finé believes the cause may be friction between tectonic plates below the lake. "I think
there's a fault line that follows the Mississippi River from in Minnesota down to the triangle area of Kentucky, Illinois
and Tennessee where it's called the New Madrid Fault," Finé said. "I think there's plate activity that generates
friction and causes the temperature here to really spike in relation to water at the same depth in other places." [...]
Local Ojibwe legend holds that after the natural resources of the Earth had been used up and society was nearing
the last days, a hole would open near Hole-In-The-Day Lake. Could the "black hole" be part of this prophecy? There
is no scientific data to back this theory up; however, there are some strange and eerie coincidences. First of all,
North Long Lake is within a few miles of Hole-In-The-Day Lake. Second, the road to get to the public access nearest
the "black hole" is Ojibwe Road. Third, and perhaps most eerie, as the prophecy pertains to the depletion of natural
resources, is that the only fatality of the dozen people to accidentally go into the hole was a bid estimator for a lumber
While the uniformity of the subtle heat is found to be surprising, it is consistent with heating by
focused soundwaves, the piezoelectric properties of the water allowing a low frequency resonance to
build-up. The crescent shape of the heated area in the middle of the long lake also implicates large
circles of standing wave energy as the acoustic source, likely in the infrasound range.
knowledge of the indigenous Ojibwe culture has been retained in the present-day names of the
lakes now pulsing with this sacred sound, and the linked prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes.
Hole-In-The-Day Lake lies a scant few miles away from this hole in North Long Lake, apparently
also known for this phenomenon as we may discover in the near future (the sacred knowledge of the
Hopi and Mayan cultures are also discussed here in further detail).
The heat source is quite likely a
resonance of standing infrasound waves ambiently focused by the Orion pyramids at Giza, exactly
6,189 miles away from the Ice Hole (46.435°N 64.287°W) or 24.86% of the Earth's circumference.
