Oregon’s Vortex Mystery


There is a good chance you’ve heard of the term vortex due to a recent amount of theories concerning them, and even though on the fringe side of things, there seems to be, some convincing evidence of their existence for many. From the Norway spiral, which many consider to be a vortex or failed rocket launch, to weird paranormal activity in specific locations on the planet that are intersected by ley lines, (a geographic and invisible electromagnetic grid around the planet that connect ancient ruins and different monolithic sites) to a small and odd side of the road attraction in Gold Hill Oregon called the Oregon Vortex and The House Of Mystery that opened in 1930. John Lister, a geologist, had visited the area in the 1920’s and was so confused by the unexplained that he saw, that he decided to stay and perform experimentation for the remainder of his life until he passed away in 1959.

In this area of Oregon is the city of Gold Hill and with it comes some interesting claims into the area of weird phenomena. At this place, it is claimed that you can take two people of the same or different height, change their location by several feet in approximation to each other, and, that they will either get taller or shorter in perspective to each other due to a vortex and its strange dimensional altering abilities. It also appears in a video of the place that, some weird things happen that defy the natural laws of nature such as two balls rolling downhill but, mysteriously slowing their own descent as if defying gravity itself. There are other cases where something similar to this has been documented before, such as cars appearing to roll uphill. In the cases I can recall, they were due to an optical illusion and we all know how optical illusions can mess with our heads. This video is such an example of that:


However, in discussion of Oregon’s vortex, optical illusion can’t be claimed, according to many, and some other results at The Oregon Vortex are quite astounding. Here you can take a regular house broom and get it to stand all by itself, you can bring a compass and watch it spin out of control and malfunction, and people seem to naturally lean at an angle of 7 and a half degrees. Believe it or not, many have reported feeling dizzy or nauseous while visiting this place and The House of Mystery is a small building that was erected as an office for miners to come and weigh their gold. According to accounts, the miners had some serious trouble weighing their gold and the office building itself later slid off its foundation to rest at an odd angle at which it currently sits.

According to their website, The Oregon Vortex is a spherical field of force, half above the ground and half below the ground. The word “vortex” simply means a whirlpool of force, like a whirling mass of water. Especially one in which a force of suction operates such as a whirlpool or a whirling mass of air or one in the form of a visible column or spiral such as a tornado”. According to the legends of the area, the Native Americans considered the place and surrounding area to have been forbidden grounds one shouldn’t enter upon. It is recorded that their horses refused to go into the area as well, no matter how hard the natives would try. Having never been there, I’m not really in a position to say whether this is or is not something strange defying the laws of perception and physics but it is interesting nonetheless and reminds me of other accounts of supposed vortex places being considered cursed or forbidden by Native Americans.

The location of the site is at coordinates 42.4930023 North and 123.0849852 West. I’m unsure whether or not this location lays at the intersection point of ley lines but there has been speculation in regards to vortex energies spawning or remaining open at such points. Regardless, this anomaly has something that seems uniquely interesting to it, whether anomaly or not, and, many believe that the vortex that exists here at the House Of Mystery is the same or similar in fashion to other vortexes that are believed to be responsible for strange happenings such as the Bermuda Triangle and Skinwalker Ranch.

Another note is that gold mines usually have deposits and veins of quartz in them that are found with gold or signify its presence in a mine, and perhaps, there is a link to the mine in the area, due to electromagnetic effects from quartz in the mine. You Decide:
