Discuss Ancient Mysteries and Places - Atlantis, The Pyramids, Stonehenge, etc. Also Forbidden Archaeology.
I saw a Stonehenge documentary with Tony Robinson (aka Baldrick) last week. The most remarkable thing about it was that apparently before the stones were erected it was already a ritual site as there was a naturally formed path, caused by glacial erosion or something that left stripes in chalk leading up the hill to the point where the solstice would have been visible at midsummer. So, the Stones were placed there to mark a naturally occurring phenomenon and vortex of energy.
Lots of interesting things about the area in general. Anyone read Thoth:architect of the Universe and Raiph Ellisons views on Avebury. It's one of many I have yet to get around to.
I have a theory that it may be able to act as a Stargate or Wormhole due to it's position as ameeting point of ley lines. Compare Stonehenge to Gilgal Refaim and we may have a clue as to what actually happened at the crucifixion or is that going too far.
Last point I promise, the program claimed the site was in the possession of the Cymri Tribe of Wales and this is why the blue stones were collected, so to remind them of their heritage. I am no expert on any of this, just an enthusiastic researcher but has anyone got any idea of where this Cymri tribe really came from. I've heard rumours they were the Gommorians originally but when were they in circulation.
Don't wanna twist your melons just have so much blurred information I'm trying to get clarification on.
My melon isn't easily twisted. However, if you could give a breif explanation or definition of some of these twenty five cent words (Cymri, Gommorians) it would sure help to keep me off of a search engine.
BTW, Gommorians comes up as a 'Star Wars' reference on Google, waaaaaaay before you get to an any mention of it in ancient literature. For a minute there I thought you were talking about a computer game or the movie. You'll need to start us out slowly as you seem to have more info in this area than most of us.
A few years back Natl Geo ran an article on stone henge and other sites. Here are some nice photos of the place:
Scimitars were not available - beware January 19, 2038 is upon us.
Stonehenge is a pretty cool and awe inspiring place. For me, here in the States, I get a similar feeling when I visit Mt. Rushmore. Everyone's different, but there's just something about those two places that amazes me. Of course, my "vortex" guide in Sedona told me that if I didn't experience a vortex in Sedona then I probably did somewhere else so those places must be my "vortex." Or something like that...
Those pics are awesome. Thanks for the link ND. The ones that I took in the early 70s are Polaroids, so the quality is pretty bad.
I didn't find anything all that awe inspiring about the location of Stonehenge. I was amazed at the local lore that I was told about it while in England. About how Merlin was responsible, etc. Having been to Sedona as well, it was as if the 'red rocks' were more awe inspiring. Sedona blew my sock off as far as beauty, tranquility, etc.
In keeping with your comment, ProfWag...I'd have to say that I found 'my vortex' at some Mayan Temple in Mexico. One long arsed broken down bus ride (hours) through the remote jungle and these little villages to see this Temple. Think 'Destination Truth' sort of thing here. I wasn't holding out much hope for awe inspiring, but it was.
I figured I must have been a virgin, sacrificed in another life.
I can't disagree with you about the Temples in Mexico as they are special in their own right. One of these days I want to get to Machu Pichu (sp?) in Peru. Everybody has their own thing I guess. My wife doesn't know why I get so mesmereized at Rushmore, but eh, to each his own I guess.
I am yet to visit Mt. Rushmore. Two years ago, my mom called and said that she wanted to take a trip to see the Crazy Horse Memorial and revisit Mt. Rushmore, so we booked a two weeks trip to the Black Hills and surrounding areas. We had to cancel as mom required emergency surgery prior to the date. We never got there but it's still high on my list.
Well, the US and Mexico ARE ancient in their own right...
Yes and as you remind me from time to time... so am I.
Now I've been googling around for "Avebury" as I have never heard of it before this topic. Is it just me? I am looking for the 'faces' in these stones and I'll be darned if I can see anything. The first pic I can see where someone might suggest that it looks like a weathered face but the others are freakin' rocks to me.
I have a hypothesis. Well, more like a thought actually. Skeptics can feel free to rip it apart as necessary.
So far the theory is that Avebury is a mystery, man made, has sort of religious significance, etc. I'm looking at pics of Avebury and I'm wondering if these stones got where they did from some sort of natural earthly occurance rather than some ancient civilization pulling off some major laws of physics or for that fact, myth.
There's lots of things on this planet that you can find only in one spot or maybe a handful of places and who knows how many rocks like this might be burried below the earth's surface that we can't see? Is it so hard to think that Avebury might have been a village at one time, where the people used simple carving techniques on perhaps broke up one large stone or two into what we see today and set them upright to serve as a barrier against invasion or to keep in goats? All you need to do with the one circle is fill it in with tree trunks using the stones for posts and you have a perfect corral for livestock.
Like I said, it's just a thought.
OK, so then it's not just me who either lacks imagination and/or the ability to apply mental matrixing to these sort of things?
OMG! What a coincidence!!! We ate grilled cheese last night too! Talk about spooky! However, no Jimmy Stewart visions on my sammich. Just the usual pattern that I get on all my toast products ....
BTW, that's a self portrait, but the original mold is hanging around in the Vatican kitchen in some cabinet drawer.
