I like a little fantasy but maybe, just maybe, some fantasies have a little truth about them or, there again, they might be first degree codswallop. Take Rainbow City for example.
Rainbow City is an ancient Martian City right here on Earth, most of it is made from a form of plastic, a bit like Lego perhaps.
And where is this city? Somewhere hidden beneath the icy wastes of Antarctica. It's actually only one of network of Martian cities built over two and a half million years ago. The other cities are now abandoned but Rainbow City remains inhabited by a few of the original colonists who made their way to Earth.
It is said that warm springs keep out the cold and ice walls 10,000 feet high guard it from intruders.
Believable so far?
The first information received about Rainbow City arrived in the 1940s in the writings of William and Gladys Hefferlin and the document was appropriately titled the Hefferlin Manuscript.
It seems that Will and Gladys learned of the city from their contact with Rani Khatani who is supposedly one of the Ancient Three who govern this Martian refuge.
And where are Mr & Mrs Hefferlin now? Well, it's rumoured that they are now living in Rainbow City and are free from old age and death with thanks to very advanced Martian medical sciences.
Now you may be wondering why the Martians would want to build a city in such an inhospitable place as Antartica. Well this is what the Hefferlin Manuscript tells us.
Millions of years back Mars was an okay place to live but their ancients realised that the planet was dying and it's oxygen and water was getting in shorter and shorter supply. It became a necessity to move, so they packed some of their bags and headed for Earth.

At the time Antarctica was a good, warm place to live, but a great catastrophe of some sort occurred and the Earth was tipped on it's axis. The survivors of this disaster had to abandon all but the Rainbow City and tmany settled in the northern hemisphere and gradually lost there technological knowledge.
Only Rainbow City remained - and remains to this day.
The original inhabitants had great knowledge, even millions of years ago. One of their most remarkable inventions was the portal a closet-like room with two doors that would warp space and deliver people or cargo to any point on the globe when the user merely concentrated on the destination.
They also built thousands of miles of subways deep beneath the Earth, going under oceans and continents. Train like vehicles would fly down these tubes by a form of vibrational power, travelling at two thousand miles per hour. The Hefferlins actually discovered the end of one of the subterranean branch lines near their home, some two hundred feet or more up the side of a mountain west of Sheridan, Wyoming.
I guess it's becoming a little harder to believe now, what with that convenient branch line to Rainbow City being conveniently placed for the writers of the Hefferlin Manuscript.
But ... Antarctica once being free of ice has some support from science and some 20th century secret occult orders say that Antarctica was once called Isuria and was home of an advanced society destroyed by an immense catastrophe. Some also claim that this was where Atlantis was positioned.
Oh, and even 1970s neo Nazi organisations claimed that the Antarctica was a base for flying saucers - secret craft designed by the Third Reich during the war and ... had links to secret underground installations in South Africa and South America.
So you pay your money and take your choice: complete fiction or an element of truth hidden away amongst a lot of debris. Just think, plastic houses and roads - Legoland has these! They've even got an Atlantis Sub Store ...
