Coral Castle, Florida
Not very far from Miami, the coral castle is situated in Homestead, Florida. However, the whole castle hasn’t been made up of coral, nor it is a castle. Yet, it is a remarkable achievement. The reason why it is amongst the mysterious places is because no one till date could explain the construction of such massive castle. As per their official website, the castle formation has confused scientists, engineers, and researchers. The castle even appeared in several TV shows, books, and magazines. For many years, the entrance door of the coral castle was perfectly balanced up until 1986 when it stopped swinging. When they removed the gate, it was said that it spanned on a metal shaft and rested on a truck carriage.
How was it built?
Whilst people were trying to figure out how apparently the gate was balanced, several others trying to contemplate as to how the castle was built. Legends say that Edward’s young love left him prior to their wedding day. It broke him to the core that he decided to leave for America; as he was leaving, he discovered about his terminal tuberculosis. However, he got better in no time. Purportedly, magnets helped him heal quickly, he said.
He built the whole castle on his own and took him 28 years to construct. He refused to be seen by anyone when he was building the castle. Albeit, few teenagers, stated that they have seen him make the corals move like a balloon. When he was asked about it, he said that only use perpetual motion holder as equipment to build the castle.
Numerous theories proposed in order to comprehend the engineering of this castle. One theory suggests that Edward Leedskalinn made the rocks weightless. Ed described in his leaflet that magnetic current becomes lighter when you reverse the magnetic forces.
The second theory suggests that the ‘black box’ has all the answer though no one till date could find the box. Experts say that the black box is somehow related to the construction of the coral castle.
Amongst many rumors, one of the rumors talks about Ed using different magnetic currents and created hollow blocks. Others proposed that his property rests on a vortex, or he has supernatural powers.
Whatever’s the case, a question here still lies- how a 5 ft. the tall man was able to construct such massive castle.
