A Nabatean city in the Negev – Avdat
by Richard Benishai
Avdat was set at its present location (see Figure 1) as a converging point for the various caravan routes crossing the Negev desert. It was founded in the first century BCE (before the Common Era). A temple complex and public buildings were visible from far and served as a landmark for caravans.

Avdat was established as a rest and recuperation point for the tired caravans, by the Nabateans (1), in the first century BCE. This city had a complex canalization system to gather and store the meager yearly rain fall.
Avdat as a hi-energy site
Spurred on by a friend, I undertook to research this supposed-to-be hi-energy location. From my home, I checked the location on an aerial picture (see Figure 2).
Figure 2 : Preliminary site search
Using my pendulum, I found that there was a fault (F1) and an underground water stream (W2) running right down the middle of the site. I discovered also another water stream (W1) crossing the front part of the site, at the Northern Church. While searching for chimneys, I located 3 such phenomena (C1-C3).
The first trip
On the 17th of May, I went to Avdat, hoping to enlist my son's help. My son, Tal, was a student in a nearby school, directly north of Avdat and a few minutes away (Midreshet Ben Gurion – a college). Unfortunately he was away on a day trip. So I headed out alone. It was a hot day and I got burned by the heavy sun. There was no humidity, so it was comfortable being in the heat.
Note : throughout this paper several terms are used that may be strange or new to the reader. For details on the meaning and definition of the parameters used in characterizing the singularities, refer to the article on Energy Parameters.
I started looking for the first chimney (C3 in Figure 2). This chimney was located exactly in front of the winery (see Figure 3). In Figure 3, the center of the chimney is indicated in red. The outside marks of this chimney are also indicated in this figure.

From this location I started to look for links to the other two chimneys (C1 and C2). The links were located for the two other chimneys. The link from C3 to C2 was about 1.60 m wide and its energy level was at 1.2 million Bovis. The second link, from C3 to C1 was 1.35 m wide and had a similar level at 1.2 million Bovis. The other two chimneys were checked, with the results following. The chimney at location C2 was on the very edge of the cliff. The center of C2 is indicated in red, with the perimeter shown in yellow. It is not surprising that the perimeter has an elliptical form, as it was discovered for the chimneys of Mount Tabor as well as other places. What is interesting about the location of the chimney is its closeness to the edge of the cliff.

The third chimney detected, C1, was directly opposite to C2. See Figure 5.Location C1

After my first trip to Avdat, I asked my good friend and co-worker, Géèma (his channeling name) to do some channeling about the place and the work I had done so far. Géèma, also a geobiologist, has the special ability to see the invisible to the naked eye. Here is a partial transcript related to Avdat :
"In ancient times, communications among men was accomplished by making very long voyages by foot or by riding animals. Often, it would take over 10 days to arrive at a place where men, women and children could find rest and recuperation, regenerate their dehydrated cells, eat and sleep. To this end, they created this station [Avdat], where they could regenerate themselves, before being on their way, once again. They would sometimes travel with their family and would return only after a few years. Using their mental powers and spirit, they created a site with high vibrations, not only to recuperate, but also to connect with their higher self. During their long night of sleep, they resolved problems on other planes (other worlds).
Based on the information obtained via channeling, I returned to Avdat on the 14 of June and this time with my son Tal. We were looking for the exact locations of the first 3 chimneys, so as to identify them on a map, this in accordance with the instructions I had received via channeling. So I found the 3 chimneys and together we took distance measurements.

Related geobiology finds
I checked a few other things, related to geobiology, such as faults, underground water streams and electromagnetic networks. Hartmann and Curry lines form part of electromagnetic global networks, running North-South/East-West for Hartmann. The Curry network is 45 degrees shifted (NW/SE and NE/SW) in relation to the Hartmann network. An overall drawing of the entire area is given in Figure 12.

Nabateans (1)- a Semitic people who inhabited Negev and ancient Edom in Transjordan from 3rd century BCE to 7th century CE. Were nomads at first, and then turned into traders and lead caravans along the Spice Route (ancient route for trade caravans bringing spices from Arabia to Mediterranean shore). They founded six cities in the Negev. Left no written records, but mentioned in Greek and Latin sources.<<Back
