From the Publisher:  “Madman?  False Prophet?  A True Visionary?”

“Cyrus Reed Teed was born 1839 in upstate New York. His parents wanted him to become a Baptist Minister, but he chose to study Medicine instead.  In 1869, Teed had a life-changing revelation, and experience he called his “Illumination”. While working in his laboratory on alchemical experiments, hoping to find the “Philosopher’s Stone” and convert lead into gold, he had a vision in which he saw God as a beautiful woman, and learned the secret of the Universe and his place in it.  Since his alchemical experiments often involved the use of high voltage electricity, it is theorized that he may have accidentally shocked himself and suffered a kind of delirium while in an unconscious state.

Whatever may have happened, Teed chose to rename himself “Koresh”, the Hebrew equivalent of his given first name Cyrus. The visionary woman he saw, also informed him that he was to become a messiah and reveal the true cosmogony to the world.  It was at this point that his particular hollow Earth theory began to take shape. Koresh was convinced that the surface of the Earth was concave and that the entire Universe is contained within the 25,000 miles circumference of the inside-out Earth. The Sun is the exact center of the “cosmic egg” 4000 miles away. He believed that the human race lived essentially inside the concave-shaped sphere, not on the outside as is commonly believed.

This work explores Koresh’s belief in a hollow Earth, his dream of a Utopian society, the formation of various communes around the country, his lifelong struggle with near-poverty and woefully inadequate finances, as well as his claim not only of to be the Christ reincarnated but also Buddha, and nearly every other founder of a system of religion. Upon his death his followers believed that he would rise to heaven and take them with him. Convinced he would return, they propped him up in a bathtub and awaited a miracle. After several weeks, the county health officer stepped in and forced Koresh’s colony to bury the decomposing body.

Though a strange story to some, Cyrus Teed’s life is an important part of Americana, deserving a place in the history books.”
