Jansen said a storm drove him and his dad in small fishing sloop near the North Pole into the Inner Earth. They returned to the surface world in Antarctica, near the South Pole, where the Dad drowned.
When Olaf returned to Norway, he asked his rich Uncle Osterlind to fit out an expedition back to Agartha.
Osterlind brought Olaf before authorities to (Olaf thought) plan the expedition he proposed. But, said Olaf, “upon the conclusion of my narrative, “I found myself arrested and hurried away to dismal and fearful confinement in a madhouse, where I remained for twenty-eight years.
“I shipped with a fisherman on a long fishing cruise to the Lofoden Islands” and eventually bought a fishing-brig of my own. For twenty-seven years thereafter I followed the sea as a fisherman, five years working for others, and the last twenty-two for myself. I took great care not to mention to anyone the story concerning the discoveries made by my Father and myself.
“In 1889 I sold out my fishing boats, and found I had accumulated a fortune quite sufficient to keep me the remainder of my life.
“I then came to America.
When my days on Earth are finished, I shall leave maps and records that will enlighten and, I hope, benefit Mankind.
The memory of confinement with maniacs, and the horrible anguish and sufferings are too vivid to warrant further chances. ”
Here’s what Olaf shared: “We left Stockholm in our fishing-sloop on the third day of April, 1829, and sailed around the Scandinavian coast to the westward for the Lofoden Islands. We sailed through the Hinlopen Strait, coasted along the North-East-Land, and sailed along Franz Josef Land to its West Coast. In 24 hours, we came to a one or two acre warm and tranquil inlet. In front of us to the North, lay open sea.
“Father said that still farther north was land more beautiful than any that mortal man had seen. I exclaimed: “Why not sail to this goodly land? The sky is fair, the wind favorable and the sea open.”
Jens, Olaf’s father, said: “Son, are you willing to go with me beyond where Man ever ventured?” When Olaf said yes, they sailed due north for thirty-six hours till they lost sight of Franz Josef Land but the sea felt warmer than Norway six weeks before.
A storm hit them and drove them “at terrific speed.
Olaf wrote, “Most of our provisions tumbled out and swept away before the wind died down. Before us “lay an iceless channel ten or fifteen miles wide, with a few icebergs far away to our right and an intermittent archipelago of smaller icebergs to the left.
“We found less than one-third of our provisions remaining. Our water-casks had been swept overboard during the violent plungings of our boat.”
Now, Olaf said, the sun beat “down slantingly, swinging around, its orbit ever visible and higher each day through clouds.
“I filled the vessel with sea water for washing. When the water came in contact with my lips, I could taste no salt. Fresh water is carried along with a ship on the heavier sea beneath it. We had drinking water on the surface, water from the bottom of the engine-room was too salty for the boiler.”
Their compass locked on its glass at hard North. “We loosened the compass,” Olaf wrote, “and turned it at right angles with the surface of the sea before its point would free itself from the glass and point according to attraction. It shifted unsteady, but finally pointed a course. Before this we thought the wind was carrying us North by Northwest, but, with the needle free, we discovered we were sailing North by Northeast ever tending northward.
“The sea was smooth, the wind brisk and the sun’s rays striking us aslant, warm. We sailed eleven days in the open sea. The water was now salty.”
Olaf’s account continued, “Father called my attention to the horizon. ‘It’s a mock sun, a reflection or mirage.’ But this false sun, as we supposed it to be, did not pass away. There was no time thereafter when we could not sweep the horizon in front and locate the illumination of the so-called false sun, twelve hours out of every twenty-four. Gradually it seemed to climb higher. Hazy-red, bronzed it would changed to a white light like a luminous cloud reflecting greater light beyond. It wasn’t a reflection of our Sun.
“One day soon after this Father shook me from sleep, ‘“Olaf, awaken; land in sight!” We saw banks were covered with trees and vegetation.
“The compass still pointed due North and moved on its pivot, as it had at Stockholm. The ‘dipping of the needle’ ceased. We were perplexed; our direction was now South.
“We sailed three days along the shore, then came to the mouth of a river of immense size, like a great bay. Into this we turned our craft, slightly Northeast of South. We continued inland into a mighty river, the HIDDEKEL.”
After 10 days, “we attained a distance inland where ocean tides no longer affected the water, which had become fresh.” Olaf and Jens replenished their casks and sailed farther upriver. They saw huge trees in forest that stretched miles as they sailed. “We landed,” wrote Olaf, near a sandy beach, waded ashore and found nuts that were palatable.
Five months since the Jansens sailed from Stockholm they heard harps and people singing and saw, Olaf wrote, ”a huge ship gliding downriver toward us. The craft lowered a boat. Six men of gigantic stature rowed to our sloop. They spoke a strange language. We knew from their manner they were friendly. The leader motioned to ask whether we’d to leave our craft to board their ship.
“We may as well go willingly as be taken by force,” said my Father. Within a few minutes we were onboard the ship. Half an hour later our craft had been lifted by hook and tackle and set on board.
“There were several hundred people on board this mammoth ship, which we discovered was called Naz (Pleasure Excursion). “
All the men onboard stood over 12 feet tall. “They all wore full beards and had beautiflul faces, fair, with ruddy complexions. The hair and beard of some were black, others sandy, others yellow. The captain was fully a head taller than any of his companions. The women averaged from ten to eleven feet in height. Their features were especially regular and refined, while their complexion was of a most delicate tint heightened by a healthful glow.
“Both men and women seemed to possess ease of manner. My Father’s six feet three did not lift the top of his head above the waist line of these people. Each one seemed to vie with the others in extending courtesies and showing kindness to us. They were richly attired, men in handsome tunics of silk and satin belted at the waist. They wore knee-breeches and stockings of a fine texture and encased their feet in sandals adorned with gold buckles.
“Neither my Father nor myself felt the least bit of solicitude for our safety. Father said ‘This is the fulfillment of the tradition told me by my Father and my Father’s Father, and still back for many generations of our race. This is, assuredly, the Land beyond the North Wind.”
We were given”, Olaf wrote, “into the charge of Jules Galdea and his Wife to learn their language.
“The vessel retraced its course upriver; its machinery, while noiseless, was very powerful. Banks and trees on either side rushed by. The ship’s speed surpassed any railroad train, even here in America.
“We lost sight of the Sun’s rays, but the dull-red Sun, gave out white light greater than two full moons. In twelve hours whiteness passed out of sight and the twelve hours following corresponded with our night.
“The ship was equipped with electricity and soft lights. (In 1829 we of the “outside” surface of the Earth knew nothing then of electricity.)”
After two days, The Naz stopped at the city of Jehu. The city featured big, well-made houses; the hillsides sported vineyards; the valleys, grain.
“Gold was everywhere–door-casings inlaid and tables veneered with gold, domes of the public buildings, gold. Gold was used generously in finishings of great Temples of Music.
“Vegetation grew in exuberance. Fruit of all kinds possessed the most delicate flavor. Clusters of grapes four and five feet in length, each grape large as an orange, and apples larger than a man’s head typified things “inside” the Earth. Along the foothills of the mountains vast herds of cattle were seen.”
Olaf and his Dad, “learned to speak the language [much like the Sanskrit] of this people, an envoy from the Ruler at “Eden” came to see us. For two days my Father and I were put through questions–from whence we came, what sort of people dwelt “without,” what God we worshiped, our religious beliefs, the mode of living in our strange land.
“The compass which we had brought with us attracted attention. The compass still pointed North, although we had sailed over the edge of the Earth’s aperture and were far south on the “inside” surface of the Earth’s crust, three hundred miles in thickness from the “inside” to the “outside” surface.
“The luminous cloud or ball of dull-red fire-fiery-red in the mornings and evenings and daytime beautiful white light, [is called] “The Smoky God.” This sun seems “suspended in the center the Earth held to its place by power that draws or repels with equal force in all directions.
“The base of this sun is dark and non-transparent save for small openings in the bottom of the altar of the Deity; lights through these openings twinkle at night and seem to be stars except larger. “The Smoky God,” with each daily revolution of the Earth, appears to come up in the east and go down in the West. The people believe the Smoky God is stationary and that night and day is produced by the Earth’s daily rotation.”
Olaf wrote that his father drew “maps of the “outside” surface of the Earth for Eden’s envoy. The maps showed him divisions of land and water, names of continents, large islands and the oceans.
“We were taken, Olaf blogged, “overland to the city of Eden in an electrical contrivance that ran on a single iron rail at high speed up hills, down dales, across valleys and along mountains. The car seats were huge, high above the floor of the car. On the top of each car high geared fly wheels on their sides adjusted as the speed of the car increased. Jules Galdea explained that these revolving wheels destroyed atmospheric pressure [so] the car is as safe from falling to one side.
“We learned that the males do not marry before 75-100 years old, a little less. Men and women frequently live from six to eight hundred years.
“We were brought before the Great High Priest, Ruler over all the land. Our craft had been brought before him. He was richly robed, taller than those about him–he was fifteen feet in height. The immense room in which he received us was finished in solid slabs of gold studded with jewels.
“Eden” is located in a beautiful valley on the loftiest mountain. [Here] fruits, vines, shrubs, trees, and flowers grow and four rivers–the Euphrates, the Pison, the Gihon, and the Hiddekel–that have their source in a mighty artesian fountain, divide and flow in four directions.
“We were given an audience of two hours with the High Priest, who seemed kindly disposed and considerate.
The High Priest asked the Jansens whether they wished to remain in his country or return to the “outer” world. Olaf reveals that his father replied: “’It would please me and my Son to visit your country and see your people, your colleges and palaces of music and art, your great fields, your wonderful forests of timber; and after we have had this pleasurable privilege, we should like to return to our home on the ‘outside’ surface of the Earth. This Son is my only child, and my good Wife will be weary awaiting our return.’
“’You will find it difficult to return’, replied the Priest, “Visit the different countries with Galdea as your escort. When ready to return outside, your boat shall be put in the river Hiddekel’s mouth, and we will bid you Jehovah-speed.’
“We visited villages, towns, and the cities of Nigi, Delfi, and Hectea. Father was called upon a half-dozen times to go over the maps he gave of “outside” Earth.
“We came to a forest of gigantic trees, near the city of Delfi. The people there are exceedingly musical and learned in arts and sciences–especially geometry and astronomy.”
In Cities the underworlders built “Palaces of Music where twenty-five thousand voices of this giant race swelled forth in mighty choruses. “ Inner world children don’t go to school until they reach 20 years old. “Then their school life begins and continues for thirty years, ten of which are devoted by both sexes to the study of music.
The Jansens saw Inner Earth industries– architecture, agriculture, and horticulture. Inner Earthers raised huge cattle herds and built travel vehicles.
Three-fourths of the “inner” surface of the Earth, according to Jansen, “is land and one-fourth water. He cites huge rivers as wide as thirty miles that run from the Inner World to the Outer. The waters from the inner freeze and “are then pushed out to sea like huge tongues of ice, by the abnormal freshets of turbulent waters that, twice every year, sweep everything before them.
Prolific birdlife–including birds with 30-foot wingspans–greeted the Jansens from seashore to mountain.
“Galdea,” says Olaf, “took us to an inlet where we saw thousands of tortoises along the sandy shore. They were from twenty-five to thirty feet in length, from fifteen to twenty feet in width and fully seven feet in height.
“One day we saw a great herd of elephants–must have been five hundred of these, tearing huge boughs from the trees and trampling smaller growth into dust. They average over 100 feet in length and from 75 to 85 in height.
“A hazy mist goes up from the land each evening, and it rains once every twenty-four hours. In places the level valleys stretched away for many miles in every direction. “The Smoky God,” in its clear white light, looked calmly down.”
“We spent more than a year visiting cities of the “within” world and intervening country, and more than two years from the time we had been picked up on the river.” They told the High priest they wanted to return to the surface world.
“Our hosts” Olaf says, gave Father maps showing the “inside” surface of the Earth, its cities, oceans, seas, rivers, gulfs and bays.
“We returned to Jehu and spent a month overhauling our sloop. The ship “Naz” that originally discovered us, took us onboard and sailed to the mouth of the River Hiddekel.”
The winds blew from the northern opening of the Earth toward Olaf’s sense of south, but which, by the Jansen’s compass was directly north. Olaf’s father said: “To return by the same route as we came in is impossible now. The only thing we can do is go south.” He turned the craft about and started–ignoring the compass–for what he felt was really due south.
In forty days, Olaf says, “we arrived at Delfi, a city near the mouth of the Gihon river. Here we stopped for two days, entertained by the same people who welcomed us on our former visit. We laid in provisions and set sail for the south they sensed.
“On our outward trip,” Olaf related, “we came through a narrow channel separating water between two considerable bodies of land.
We waded ashore to rest up for a day before continuing the outward hazardous undertaking. There was a mild, luminous light from the outer Sun shining in from the South aperture of the Earth.
The atmosphere grew colder. Winds filled our sails from the warm climate “within the Earth. The compass behaved in the same drunken fashion over the southern curve of the Earth as it had on our inbound trip at the northern entrance.”
An iceberg hit the Jensen’s boat. Olaf’s father, Jen, drowned.
When Olaf recovered, the Arlington Captain, Angus MacPherson, according to Olaf, asked “where I had come from, and how I came to be alone on an iceberg in Antarctic Ocean. I replied that I had come from “inside” of the Earth. I told him how Father and I had gone in by way of Spitzbergen, and come out by way of the South Pole.”
“I decided to invent some story that would satisfy the Captain and never again refer to my trip.” Olaf paid the Captain off and went to Stockholm, where he found his mother had died. A relative got him committed to a mental institution there for 28 years.
