Some Loaded Observations

Some Loaded Observations

{Note: As of 8/22/18, & 8/29/18; I have edited and expanded this post to correct some grammatical/ spelling errors, as well as to provide more links and resources to works cited.  I have also expanded, for clarification and to be more scholarly, on some of the topics addressed in this post, so please take a second look at this post if you have read it already.}
I have not blogged lately due to the fact I don't have much time dedicated to it lately, plus the fact that my lap-top is on the fritz.  At the moment, I am writing this post from the public library.
Where to start?  I will be getting into some loaded observations in this post.  I encourage researcher's to synchronize their research.  Looking at these stone sites doesn't just relate to the fact that there is a stone site here, and a stone site there.  The study should broaden into finding out the truth of geography and earth-changes in the past- floods, earthquakes, crustal displacement theory, sea-floor spreading, etc.  Let me explain. 
Early researchers into stone sites into New England attested to the similarity between these Neolithic sites and sites in the Old world, such as western Europe.  These theories are being disregarded by the new wave of researchers, as well as the efforts of some archaeologists and some representatives of some Native groups themselves.  As it should be, right?  I say yes, this is as it should be- many of the ancient stone remains and relics are in fact Native in origin.  However, given the fact that a lot of early researchers weren't always on the ball (however, they were on the ball with some of the Norse ("Viking") finds (see the book "Norse Discoveries And Explorations in America, 982-1362, from Leif Erikson to the Kensington Stone" by Hjalmar R. Holand) like the Kensington Rune Stone, identifying ancient mooring stones used by the Norse, and perhaps even a pre-Viking Irish presence, however brief- see the book "The Ruins of Great Ireland in New England" which actually did give a fair handed treatment between the distinction of what the author thought may be the work of Native people and the work of 7th/8th century Irish Culdee monks- the author used sound reasoning in his hypothesis), they seem (early researchers) to have failed (for the most part, but not always) in their scholarship in that they would attribute Native sites as authentic "Old World" finds- for instance, ignoring the fact (or the ignorance of) that Native people were capable of, and did, erect things like Standing Stones and build stone and Earth mounds.  Case closed, right?
Well, not entirely.  My research has led me to the fact that, not only in myths and legends (the Plato/ Egyptian myth of Atlantis, cultural flood legends from around the world saying the same thing, etc.), but corroborated by science such as sea floor spreading, and crustal displacement, and the fact that we know some of the timelines of past volcanic and flooding events from thousands of years ago (as I have talked about in this blog before- read some of my older posts), our human race has a very rich and perhaps unsuspected heritage indeed, just waiting to be explored (some brave souls have been/ are already exploring the expanded picture of life and culture on our planet and get flak for it- books like "Morning of the Magicians" by Jaques Bergier and Louis Pauweles or "The Mysterious Past" by Robert Charroux come to mind, which I greatly enjoyed reading.)
Let me give you an example from the stone-works.  Stone Chambers.  From an expanded perspective, the Stone Chamber is in fact a post-Atlantean dry-stone constructed style of pan-Atlantic architecture.  "Atlantean" simply meaning, the peopling along the Atlantic seaboard of various lands.  Let me give you an example.  Stone Chambers are found in the American Northeast such as New England, but there are also identical Stone Chamber structures in the Canary Islands (islands off the coast of North Africa in the Atlantic.)  The indigenous people of these islands was the Guanches.  Just go to YouTube, and type in "Gran Canaria Television Padre Baez."  This is the man that wears the bright yellow shirt.  There are several videos uploaded on that channel that feature ancient stone ruins, including Stone Chambers- specifically the videos "Grabados Guanches" (14 minutes in) and "Necropolis de Arteara" (stone ruins throughout the video- a great example of a stone chamber right in the first second of the title page, bottom left).  If one did not know the filming was in the Canaries, one might wonder, is this New England?  Ireland?  The Mediteranian?  Stone Chambers and other ruins are also found on the Azores Islands, 1/3 out into the Atlantic between the Old World and the "New" World.  In fact, flora and fauna attest to the fact that the Azores and the Canaries were once connected, or so the evidence would seem (from a scientific analysis written about in a book called "Cataclysm!: Compelling Evidence of A Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 B.C." written by D.S. Allan and J.B. Delair, both scientists/educators.)  Stone Chambers of the SAME style (not just a cosmetic resemblance as some would have you think) are also found on the west coast of Ireland, Greenland (pictures of ancient Greenland Stone Chambers were published in the book "The Ruins of Great Ireland in New England" in the 1940's), and the Mediteranian. 
I would assert that, when the Earth was different, when the land was different (more land connections, a lot less ocean- see the aforementioned book "Cataclysm!" or also "Earth Changes Ahead" by Frank Don, etc., etc.) there was a proto-indigenous civilization, (spiritual.)  This may as well be described as "Atlantean" (my definition of the term was already described in the above paragraph.)  Therefor, the stone building techniques (Stone Chambers, Stone Mounds, Pyramids) were preserved among early indigenous cultures along the Atlantic sea-boards.  Later, in the Western tradition (Mystery Schools), including up through colonial times, this tradition was preserved, accounting for, in New England, a hodge-podge of both earlier, ancient examples of the Stone Chamber built by Native people, and later stone-works built in colonial times.  There are examples of both in older photographs featured in this blog.  What about Mystery Hill in New Hampshire?  I believe that there are original, ancient elements to this site, such as the Standing Stones, and a few of the Stone Chambers, but some of the other Chambers/ stone-work was probably embellished in the early 20th century.  At any rate, I feel they did the best they could in their restoration effort.  After all, some of this type of work is "In the Spirit Of."

Here are some brief excerpts from the book "Cataclysm!" page 32 concerning the mid-Atlantic ridge (note: the Azores is near this fault, which is why it has been supposed those islands are mountaintops of submerged landmasses); "...the discovery of geologically very young beach sand in two deep sea cores... indicate(s) that the region was above sea level at no very remote period...Granitic and sedimentary rocks which must originally have been 'part of a continent' were dredged up near the Mid-Atlantic Ridge from a depth of 3,600 ft (1100m)...the inequalities, the mountains and valleys of it's surface, could never have been produced in accordance with any laws for the deposition of sediment, nor by submarine elevation; but on the contrary, must have been carved by agencies acting above the water level... geologist Pierre Termier spoke of a now-vanished North Atlantic landmass... which existed about 900km to the north of the Azores and, perhaps, embracing these isles, was plunged into the deep...the volcanic upheavals traced on the bed of the Atlantic around the Azores as having occurred synchronously with the break-up and subsidence of Appalachia, the name given by geologists to a continental landmass in the North Atlantic also known as North Atlantis.  Now reposing some two miles (3.2km) below the level of the adjacent continental shelves, Appalachia connected Europe and North America via Greenland and Iceland...."  
Red Paint People   Also, the Mystery of the Lost Red Paint People is just that: a mystery.  The scholars have copped out from looking into any ancient pan-Atlantic connection when it was staring them right in the face (just watch the 1980's documentary aired on PBS "Mystery of the Lost Red Paint People", which has been uploaded onto YouTube).  Red Paint People are most likely the progenitors of the peopling of different pan-Atlantic areas coming out of the end of the last Ice Age. (9,000-11,000 years ago, coming out of the cataclysm which settled down 11,500 years ago.)  I do not believe they would fit precisely in with any modern racial identification or classification.  They are "proto", and are perhaps the survivors of "Atlantis".  However, it should be understood that the Red Paints can also be simply referred to as Native American ancestors.  I do NOT believe there is any (significantly, at least) Caucasian roots in these people- I firmly stand by that the Red Paints would have been Proto-Algonquian; however, I think in the most remote of ancient times, there may have been an Cro-Magnon admixture.  Cro-Magnons are not part of the modern-day race of humans- they are not technically European or Caucasian or the like- this is a hot debate- white people seem to want them to be white, black people want them to be black, etc.  Nonsense.  There is nobody around like them today.  They did (Cro-Magnons) average around 7 ft. tall.  This may also help to establish the pan-Atlantic connection.  For instance, some people have surmised that the Guanches of the Canaries were Cro-Magnon descendants- they were dark-skinned and averaged about 7 feet tall when the Spanish invaded them.  Some proponents of the "Dogaland" theory of Atlantis in the British Isles also place Cro-Magnon man as the builders of Stonehenge, etc.  Now, I am not overly concerned with this issue, just who were the Red Paint people?  Because I know from direct experience that the ancient ancestors were dark-skinned Native Americans- I have been shown this in vision more than once.    

{Note:  Also, if the term "Atlantis" rubs one the wrong way, there is other terminology which alludes to the same kind of a thing such as "Gondwanaland", crustal displacement and earth shifts, sea floor spreading, etc.  For instance, from the geological evidence it has been scientifically deduced that the Caledonian Mountains of Western Europe match the Appalachian Mountain Range of Eastern North America, they have simply been displaced due to Earth Changes of the past.  The source of this statement comes from the book "Earth Changes Ahead" by Frank Don, who in turn was referring to the work of 20th century geologist Alfred Wegener.}   
Aquinnah-  There are many straight-up PYRAMIDS in Aquinnah, Martha's Vineyard.  They are not sand dunes, they do not resemble sand dunes, but are buried in the sand.  The original coast-line of this area literally must have sunk into the ocean, exposing the red cliffs, which would have been a layer of clay in the Earth.  Many pyramids also exist (often confused for natural formations) for miles around Holliston, Medway, Hopkinton, and Milford MA., which probably extend into Upton (site of the well-known Upton Stone Chamber), Mendon, and Uxbridge MA. area although I have not done as much hiking/ researching in those last three towns just mentioned.
Sea-Serpents.  The traditions, sightings, and evidence for Sea-Serpents (and Lake Serpents) survive in many areas of the North Atlantic Sea-board.  Loch Ness in Scotland and Champ in Lake Champlain Vermont/ New York are the two best known examples.  There are also numerous others- Memphrie, in Lake Memphromagog in Quebec, the Gloucester, MA. sea-serpent witnessed since the 1600's, but especially in the 19th century off the Massachusetts coast (a live baby specimen of this species was even analyzed and named in the 19th century.  Unlike a regular snake, it had humps on it's back.  The scientific name was Scoliophis Atlanticus , or that is to say, the "Atlantic-Humped Snake.")  In the 1970's a sea-serpent washed ashore Mann Hill beach in Scituate, MA.  Local author Edward Rowe Snow took the best photos of the Great-Horned Serpent on the first day, before the carcass decayed and the experts were unable to properly identify it over 48 hours later (people were hacking it apart and local restaurants were serving 'Sea Serpent Soup.)  Snow covers the incident in his book "Supernatural Mysteries and Other Tales" along with the photos of the carcass.  The head looked just like giant stone snake heads I have seen (see May 15th, 2017 post.)  Other Sea Serpents have existed, and may continue to exist off the Maine coast, Eastern Canada (Newfoundland, etc.), off the shores of Greenland, off the shores of Norway/ Scandinavia, and in Irish lochs as well as Scottish.  In truth, the North Atlantic Sea Serpent phenomena follows the same line of inquiry as the ancient monolithic stone-works do.  In fact, they are explicably linked to the psyche, or consciousness of the ancient stone builders of the pan-Atlantic regions.  These sacred creatures express a super-natural component the Ancient's understood and revered.  One of the greatest Ophidic (snake worship) cults lost to history once existed along the Atlantic seaboards due to the awesome presence of these fantastic creatures. 
Some of the ancient stone rows of the American Northeast, usually undulating and showing "humps", are in fact representations of the Great-Horned Serpent ("Great-Horned-Serpent" is the English translation of the Native histories of these snakes, but I firmly believe they are what modern people think of as a Champ or Loch Ness Sea-Serpent.)  These stone rows are in correct proportionate size to the sea-serpent- sometimes 20, 40, 60, 70, or 90 ft. long stone rows/ sea serpents, undulating.  This power relates to the super-natural ability of the Earth itself.  Also in many of the ancient stone rows I have seen, the "water horses" (as it is sometimes called) head is clearly discerned, even the stone itself slightly modified to represent this.  Some good books which relate specifically to Sea-serpents I would recommend are: The Loch Ness Monster by Tim Dinsdale; Search At Loch Ness- The Academy of Applied Sciences and MIT Expedition by Dennis L. Meredith; Champ- Beyond the Legend by Joseph W. Zarzynski; and Monsters of the Sea- the history, natural history and mythology of the Ocean's most fantastic creatures by Richard Ellis.  All that is needed is an awareness of the existence of the lake/sea serpents, at least an elementary understanding of Native American folklore/ history, as well as field experience observing artifacts such as stone rows, which have been interpreted as snakes even by tribal representatives, and the rest should click into place.  Also, the snake was a guardian spirit of the underworld.     
The Little People  Now, it is also very true that different species of hominids once existed (such as the remains of the pygmy Indonesian Little People they found a few years back), and IN FACT, despite what people think they may know, some of these races still exist today, such as the Little People, who use what we can only describe as magic, or perhaps they are partly what we would think of as elementals, although they can and do manifest.  All I can say to that end is, if you live near any habitations of the Little People, make sure to treat the nature in that area with the utmost respect- one can even gain their unsaid favor this way.  If however, one has destructive tendencies towards life and the environment, all I can say is good luck buddy, you shouldn't piss them off.    One good documentary is "The Fairy Faith" (written and directed by John Walker) which has been uploaded to YouTube.  It starts in Eastern Canada, goes across to the British and Irish country-sides, then concludes with accounts of First Nations Micmac people back in Canada.  What is amazing is the accounts are of the same sort of thing, which re-asserts my belief that the ancient spirit of the North Atlantic lands is in fact one, although I do believe a distinction needs to be made between the Little People and the Fairies/elementals.  In South-Eastern New England, one of the most well preserved accounts of the Little People of Algonquian lore (the Magasiwaheug) has been handed down by certain elders of the Mohegan Tribe (Connecticut).  

Sasquatch  Other hominids such as Gigantopithicus (Sasquatch/ Bigfoot) exist as well.  Bigfoot has been seen in just about every state but their modern territory is the NorthWest (Washington State, Northern California, Oregon, British Colombia Canada, etc.)  Various people have sighted Bigfoot- Police Officers have, and including entire construction crews.  What, were they mass hallucinating?  I doubt they were.  Not to mention all of the casts they have of footprints, the Tom Patterson footage, etc.  I believe they are sentient like we are, but that their consciousness evolved a bit differently.  In other words, they are probably fellow "humans", just very different.  There have been several witnesses, including groups of people, observing Sasquatch building stone piles.  However, the stone piles built by the ancient Sasquatch race is probably a million to one in the scope of things.  Among the Stone heads I have seen I have seen representations of probably modern homo sapien sapiens, elongated heads, possibly giants, and even "ape-like" Sasaquatch looking stone heads in 2 cases, one of which may have been reported in this blog years back.  A great book I enjoyed reading on the subject of Bigfoot was "There Are Giants In the Earth: Survivors Since Genesis- An Evolutionary and Legendary History of the Yeti, Mono Grande, and Sasquatch, Three Strains of Hominoid Giants Alive Today" by Michael Grumley (out of print; first published in 1974.)  In the book, Grumley deviates a bit from the Sasquatch phenomena (in a good way) to examine the evolution of other hominoids as well as other species.  Amazingly, Grumley's conclusions, concerning the "dinosaurs", back in 1974, weren't fully understood or rolled out by science until around 2005 when Mark Norell wrote the ground-breaking book "Unearthing the Dragon: The Great Feathered Dinosaur Discovery" concerning the latest fossil finds from China which have re-written our understanding of what us moderns (may perhaps mistakenly) call dinosaurs, which I think of as the "Plumed Serpent" which is depicted on Mayan temple reliefs, even up through my region of North America (New England) at ancient sites (examples in older posts of this blog), and all over the world (Chinese dragon, etc.)  Which leads me to believe we may not be able to trust our geological dating such as the Carbon 14 (C-14) method of dating, which is largely employed by archaeologists.  Michael Grumley was also one of the first people to dive and explore the Bimini Road, which he did in the company of Pino Turolla, who wrote the great archaeological masterpiece "Beyond the Andes"; (out of print); if there is a real-life Indiana Jones it is certainly not Graham Hancock as I have heard some younger people tout, but rather Pino Turolla.      
Mud Fossils.  I encourage people to take a look at Mud Fossils.  Just go to "Mud Fossil University" on Youtube.  The uploader is a trained scientist (however rogue he may be) and has many great videos.  After watching one of his videos (of a humanoid reptilian stone head found in Washington State) I now do believe that some of what I am looking at are Mud Fossils, which is a real scientific phenomena (the body does not decay in the same way if flooded or in-undated by water, and the remains mineralize/ crystalize and eventually turn to stone.  Modern cases of this have even happened in cemeteries although rarely.)  I believe that the stone head I shared on May 15th of 2017 on this blog may in fact be the mud fossil of a giant.  It actually makes a lot more sense than to think the stone was somehow "molded" into shape.  And, after watching the Mud Fossil University video about the Washington state stone, I noticed the blood oxidization on the stone head from MA. I covered (sorry it is a lousy pic- just look through the older posts), is in the same spots the presenter of that other video from Mud Fossil University was describing.  Also the stone head I blogged about would have been that of a 9 foot or maybe 11 foot or so giant if it did indeed once exist in the flesh and is now a Mud Fossil (not the proportions of a modern person).  (One book I recently picked up due to the fact that I saw this phenomenon with my own eyes- in other words- the possible evidence of ancient giants was "The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America: The Missing Skeletons & the Great Smithsonian Cover-Up" by Richard J. Dewhurst.)   Also, Mud Fossils could very well explain some of the giant boulders that look like giant turtles and sharks, etc. that I have seen in the hills (the hills were obviously under the ocean at some point in the ancient past, for lands rise and fall throughout history.)  Now, I do not believe that every last thing in the world is a Mud Fossil, but I do believe the phenomena in some cases does exist.

Joseph Smith  A note about Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormon Church.)  He grew up in up-state New York as well as the country in Vermont (not far from Stone Chamber sites analyzed in the book "Manitou- The Sacred Landscape of New England's Native Civilization" by James Mavor and Byron Dix.)  Apparently not only did Joseph Smith, but his father as well as other prominent men in his community (in up-state New York in the early 19th century), believed that many of the hills in their area were not natural in formation, but were thrown up by the hands of men (in other words, mounds/ pyramids.)  This is exactly what I am noticing in my area in Massachusetts, yet in my time, I feel that I am just about the only person (or one of the only, anyway), to have noticed this in my community.  Sure, eskers and drumlins exist, but there are many more hills which are in fact pyramids/ mounds.  Anyway, it is interesting that Smith apparently had some divine spiritual communications with the "angel Maroni."  In other words, what he experienced was something profoundly spiritual.  I am not a Mormon, nor do I embrace anything about it.  Yet I do believe in an unseen world around us and find some of these facts about Joseph Smith to be quite interesting.

Colonial Stone Walls/ Structures  It is also worth noting that in colonial times, colonists were very actively building stone walls.  There are enough examples of Native stone rows as well, but more often than not, a stone wall is colonial in origin.  There are revisionists who would have you believe that most stone walls are pre-colonial.  This is not the case.  First off, landowners in colonial times had much more indentured servants than at first assumed.  Case in point, just the other year academics/historians discovered a large population of Irish indentured servants who were aboard the Mayflower.  Before this, no record of these people had existed.  The impact of this is apparent- no doubt this is not an isolated case- I am inclined to think that this is the case in most ships that came over and colonies that were established.  Another talking point is, beasts of burden (bulls, etc.) were used to haul heavy stones around.  Thirdly, it wasn't until the late 1700's that the Julian calendar was introduced by decree of the Vatican.  Farmer's would more often than not orient their stone walls and other structures to solstice points, etc. as they were an agrarian society- I remember my history teacher in 7th grade talking about this point as regards to just general history.  Fourth, is, there would have been a colonial obsession with "taming the wilderness" or marking out plots.  Hence, stone walls are found in some spots today such as ledges which seem impractical.  Well okay, it is impractical, but the colonists were in fact impractical like that- stern attitude, do it because it must be done, don't argue with me types of people.  Therefore they did plot out what was back then boundaries and property lines that way, even if it seems impractical to us today.  And the fifth point is, early colonial mining around hillsides, usually around streams.  These people would usually dowse to find the rocks they needed/ precious metals, etc.  A whole team of people was used in this process.  There would be several people in this group whose duty it was to make rock stacks/ stone piles of discarded rocks this way.  Pretty soon the entire hillside would be littered with left-over stone piles.  I have seen 16th/17th century drawings (or engravings or whatever) of this process in action- the result would be where someone would expect to find what today may be identified as a grouping of Native American rock piles.  But don't get me wrong, because the confounding thing is that groupings of Native American rock piles/ mounds exist in the same kinds of areas.  It is a monumental task sorting out this last example of stone piling to determine a Native American or Colonial origin.  As I have said above- the stone-works represents a hodge-podge of different phases and cultures.  For instance, ancient pre-colonial Native people in some cases did build stone chambers, but than again, the Quakers in colonial times also built similar looking structures, the Irish Culdee monks in the 7th/ 8th centuries probably had a hand in some of these Chambers as well, etc.  Also note:  On an Internet search, if you type in something like "New England Stone Chamber" you will get links to people who don't have a good sense of what they are talking about and in some case skeptics.  The term you want to punch in is: "Ceremonial Stone Landscape."  In other words, yes, for thousands of years, there exist many styles of Native American stone monuments; however, I have also noticed that some revisionists take it a bit too far, in which case I question their true motives.  That is the gist of the rant in this paragraph, in other words.         

Libraries:  Please Note:  Many (if not all?) books I have cited in this post are out of print.  A lot of times the Public Libraries do not have many of these kinds of books, either.  I am blessed to have a great Used/ Antiquarian bookstore a few towns away from me.  Some of these books such as "Unearthing the Dragon" I even got in turn at a Library book sale, in other words, they were throwing away some of their best books- the real knowledge that should be free for all!  Please be aware!  This is akin (or a few steps removed from) to something like NWO World Socialism or Nazi Facism.  Please be aware!  Ours (America) is a land of freedoms, rights, and liberties.  Please be aware-- the Libraries usually don't have the good books about knowledge about the human and environmental health risks of genetically engineered foods, holistic modalities of how to protect your health, books about Atlantis, etc.  Please sound the alarm of this outrage!

More Recommended Reading:  "Before Civilization" by Colin Renfrew (1973); "Stonehenge Decoded" by Gerald S. Hawkins (1965)- It is due to this work that we know, from an archaeo-astronomy perspective, our modern insights into Stonehenge as a calendar/computer of sorts.  This breakthrough paved the way for other Archaeo-astronomers such as Mavor and Dix in "Manitou".  "The Mysteries of Stonehenge" by Fernand Niel (1974); Timaeus and Critias by Plato; "Atlantis: The Antediluvian World" by Ignatious Donnely; "Atlantis- The Eingth Continent" by Charles Berlitz; "The History of Atlantis" by Lewis Spence; "Another Look At Atlantis" by Willy Ley; "Atlantis- The New Evidence" by Martin Ebon; "The Monuments of Mars- A City On the Edge Of Forever" by Richard C. Hoagland etc. etc.  One could keep connecting threads and going into more lines of inquiry until I would be recommending Hesiod's "Theogany" and "Works and Days" , Homer's Iliad and Odyssey; which would lead down the road to Steven Sora's "Triumph Of the Sea Gods" etc. etc.  But I will nip the bud to keep it short for the purposes of this blog. 

I would also say:  Certain writers of fiction/ fantasy seem to accessing something primordial deep within the psyche of our human experience.  Two writers that come to mind are Robert E. Howard who wrote the original Conan the Barbarian novels and Edgar Rice Burroughs who wrote the John Carter of Mars series or the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.  I believe that what can be known, is already known.  Certain visionary minds are able to access this information, albeit play around with it.     
That is all that I would like to share now for this post.  Thank you for tuning in and reading my blog.  Please stay tuned, there will be more material and posts added, however, not as frequently as had been so in the past.  Thank you again,

"Life Comes From Life"

"Life Comes From Life- A Startling Challenge to the Modern Scientific Theory of the Origin of Life and the Universe:" Morning Walks With His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Founder of the International Society for Krishna Conciousness)

I thought I would share a few passages from a book I am currently engaged in, "Life Comes From Life", which is basically a philosophical dialogue between Swami Prabhupada and his students during intercourses on morning walks in the Los Angeles area in the mid- 1970's.  There is some very great insight in this book- in fact, if one were to keep accumulating books such as "Life Comes From Life" or "Red Earth, White Lies" by Vine Deloria Jr., a clear image will start to emerge that modern scientific (and academic) theories and mind-sets are complete buffoonery (for example, Darwinian Evolution).  Swami Prabhupada repeatedly condemns scientists to be "rascals" and "fools" who are "misguiding the public".  I would have to agree with him.  I found a used copy of this book for 0.99 cents; I knew it would be good when I picked it up at the store, and was surprised, reading through it, to find out just how good it is!

A note before quoting some relevant passages concerning energy and stone (which can be applied to our understanding of the Ceremonial Stone Landscape) from the book- from my understanding, Krsna (Krishna), is the emanating spiritual force of energy that has created our universe.  What Swami Prabhupada explains is that matter comes from this spiritual, emanating life-force, and that matter does not create life (which is what scientist's believe.)  Although I have used different terminology (different life experience), I immediately realize from reading Swami (or Srila) Prabhupada's words that I am in the same camp as him- I believe in a spiritual life-force (Great Spirit) as the emanation or source of creation, a Divine Intellegence, rather than matter (a material substance) as the source of Life.  As far as I am concerned, what this Vedic philosophy refers to as "Krsna Conciousness" is the same thing as having "Christ Conciousness" (which is a big reason to independently study the Christian and pre-Christian religions and philosophies- the Essenes, Gnosticism, Alexandrian scholars such as astrologers and alchemists, the earlier Egyptian Mystery Schools, etc.)  As a matter of fact, the highest attainment in the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools was to become a "Son of the Light" or a "Son of the Reflected Light."  In the Vedic tradition Lord Krsna is said to be the source, or emanation of the Spiritual Light, thus the source of All Creation in our universe.  And of course, as I will touch on later, we know that "light" or the interplay and reflection of light (sun and moon) plays a significant role in Ceremonial Stone Landscape sites, such as Standing Stones, Stone Chambers, rock pile sites, etc.  I would maintain that the sacred understandings of the medicine people (at one time many people probably were medicine people to some degree or another), of the Eastern Seaboard of the America's had the same understandings that other ancient people had such as the Egyptians or the Hindus, or the Mayans, as understood in their own cultural context, in their area, expressed in their way.  Although this has always been known to some degree by say, historians or archaeologists ("everything Native people did was sacred"), I believe that Ceremonial Stone Landscapes can confirm this in a way that sheds a whole new light on the pre-colonial civilization and past.  Compared to this religious understanding, things like subsistence and hunting sites are a bit of a "dim" understanding (or, I should say, far from a complete picture) when compared to a megalith building and spiritual component of the culture- but how many academics will admit this?  Sadly, not many as of yet, although there are some.  Hopefully this will be realized by more people in a Good Way in future years, which may help people, and perhaps our society as a whole, to elevate our consciousness, understandings and compassion to new heights, which should have reciprocal positive benefits for the environment as well.  But first, people will need to "find their way" out of all of the distractions, modern confusion, technology that is hurting our health, government scandals, and other various forms of toxicity.

Now, some quotes from the dialogue from the book "Life Comes From Life:"

Srila Prabhupada:  "As soon as you speak of energy, there must be a source." (Pg. 16)

Dr. Singh:  (Pg. 62) "If someone looks at the Deity of Krsna in the temple and thinks that it is only stone or wood, what does that mean?"

Srila Prabhupada:  "He is ignorant of the facts.  How can the Deity be material?  Stone is also Krsna's energy.  Just as electric energy is everywhere but only the electricians know how to utilize it, so Krsna is everywhere- even in stone- but only His devotees know how to utilize stone to appreciate Krsna.  The devotees know that stone cannot exist outside of Krsna.  Therefore, when the devotees see the Deity, they say 'here is Krsna.'  They see the real oneness of Krsna and His energy.... This means that Krsna's energy- that is, Krsna in His partially manifested form- pervades every atom of the universe.  But His fully manifested personal form is present in the Deity (the stone) shaped according to His directions.  This is the philosophy of acintya-bhedabheda-tattva, the simultaneous oneness and difference of God and His energies.  For example, when the sunshine is in your room, that does not mean the sun itself is in your room.  The sun and its separated energies, like heat and light, are one in quality, but different in quantity."

Note: The emphasis on the word "separated" and the clarification of "the stone" in paranthesies are my own clarifications.  Now, this Hindu, or Vedic perspective would be different to a Native American perspective in some regards.  Well no sh*t (here I am getting a bit defensive, perhaps unfoundedly, but just in case).  However, Srila Prabhupada is indeed speaking some great universal truths here in these statements.  For instance, he describes "the simultaneous oneness and difference of God and His energies" while describing to a disciple the properties of an energetic, or conciouss, manifestation of Spiritual Force or Life within a stone, or certain stones (in this case used in a temple to represent Krsna).  So here the Swami is maintaining that 1) Stones have a life force, for they are a material manifestation emanating from the original spiritual Life-Force (as is everything we perceive in this world), and 2), The stone can represent a higher ideal, attainment, or purpose than just stone, it is imbued, to some degree or another, with a life-force essence, such as that of a divine saint or deity, coming from spiritual source energy.  He also talks about "separated" energies using light, or sunshine, as an example- this is what the Egyptian Mysteries talked about with the "Sons of the Reflected Light."

This topic closely relates to one of the themes I mentioned in my last post concerning different Standing Stones being imbued with "spirit" of a great medicine person, chief, or sage.  In other words an Ascended Master.  This was a tradition to be found in many parts of the world including Northeastern America, and, going back in time tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of years of our human civilization, what some may call "Atlantis."  This practice also existed in the Celtic and pre-Celtic European Standing Stone sites (usually located on the western-most coasts of Europe, hugging the Atlantic shoreline, compared to, paradoxically, eastern-most North America), until the times of Christianity and "witch-hunts" came about, when it was banned to inter-act with these stone sites.   These traditions are in other lands as well around the world such as Mongolia, India, Taiwan, etc.

"The Sons of the Reflected Light" is found in every land.  This may be what some have referred to even as the "Masma" culture (the guy who studied at Markahuasi, Peru).  There was, and sometimes still is, a universal understanding of how Spirit works, and of the manifestation of Life Force and Creation itself.

Is the "Atlantean" Theory Appropriate When Researching Ancient Stone Sites? My Thoughts on the Matter

Is the "Atlantean" Theory Appropriate When Researching Ancient Stone Sites?  My Thoughts on the Matter

If you have read some of my recent posts, I have alluded to ancient megalithic sites in relation to some other people's research on lost lands and vanished, ancient civilizations, such as the land of "Mu" or "Atlantis", which sounds kind of new-age, airy-fairy at first if one is not familiar with the scholarly research on these subjects- however, I have come to the conclusion that although ancient stone sites are INDIGENOUS to their respective cultures, in their place and time, there seems to be "SOMETHING ELSE", some elusive etheric link between the practice of the ancient cultures across the face of the globe- something that us modern people can't quite put our fingers on- to me, this is what somebody might call "Atlantis."  The teachings and traditions of the ANCIENT ONES, as spoken of in native folklore.  So let us look at this question- is the Atlantean theory an appropriate approach when researching ancient stone sites?  In my opinion, based on the evidence I have amassed, after years of research, both from my own personal interactions at site locations, and from reading various people's literature on megalithic cultures, the "Atlantean" hypothesis, or theory, is both VALID and INVALID at once, it is an appropriate line of inquiry as well as inappropriate- the answer is both YES and NO.  Let me explain. 

Before I explain however, I recommend the following books: Mavor and Dix's Manitou: the Landscape of New England's Native Civilization, Stephen Mehler's "The Land of Osiris: An Introduction to Khemitology", Ignatious Donnely's Atlantis: the Antediluvian World, Charles Berlitze's Atlantis: the Eighth Continent", James Churchward's "The Lost Continent of Mu: the Motherland of Man", etc.- the more scholarly the books are, the better.  For instance, the works of literature just mentioned were authored by oceanographic engineers, Egyptologists immersed in the indigenous Khemitian tradition of Dynastic and Pre-Dynastic Egypt, 19th century U.S. Congressmen, Yale University graduate's fluent in over 20 languages, and world traveler's engaged in meticulous, cross-referenced scholarly research.

Okay.  Before we proceed.  Indigenous stone sites, whether in the land of the ancient Maya, Inca, Algonquin, Guanches, or Zulu, Mongolian or Aboriginal, Celtic or Greek or Minoan, do not have to be explained by a "lost" Atlantean or some such civilization- these works STAND ON THEIR OWN as the stone works of the respective cultures of their area.  These sites ARE indigenous to the Native Mayan culture, or the Native Algonquin, or in Africa, to the ancient ancestors of the Zulus, or the tribal Guanches of the Canary Islands murdered by the Spanish in colonial times (ancient megalithic sites of Gran Canaria, Tenerife, etc.).  I have always upheld that stone sites in New England are indigenous, Native American in origin, which I assure you, they are.  We do not need imported cultures to explain, for example, ancient Native American sites in New England.  No, Celtic people did not build these sites, Native people did- it is INSULTING to think that ancient Celts somehow built thousands of sites in New England and vanished without a trace (although I am sure small expeditions of say, 8th century Irish monks did sail out this way and make landfall, such as the voyage of St. Brendan, but they do not really account for the megaliths/ stone-sites or anything significant we know of- Mavor and Dix's approach here is the correct one, in realizing the Native origin of the structures).

However, YOUR "Atlantis" is not necessarily MY "Atlantis."  To understand this, just ask a Puerto Rican.  Most people I have met from Puerto Rico have Native Taino blood running through their veins.  Native and White.  Native and Black.  Native, White and Black.  However you slice it.  Etc.  Most people in PR are aware of how special their island is, and know that there is remains of a much older, ancient culture underneath the dense jungles and hillsides, and buried off of the coast in the waters of the Atlantic.  This knowledge is expressed in the visionary works of local artist's paintings, musicians, and people who dare to express themselves openly.  I hope people understand what I am getting at. 

I also maintain that there are SIMILARITIES and DIFFERENCES of sites on both sides of the Great Water (the Atlantic) as well as in the middle of the Atlantic (the Azores, the Canaries), to say, "we are looking at the works of different native cultures and indigenous groups, yet there is something else about these sites that seems to connect these places- something we can't quite put our finger on."  For instance, on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, there are the remains of thousands of Standing Stones.  The two best preserved sites for standing stones are Burnt Hill in Massachusetts and a site on the Coffin Island in Labrador.  Some sites in my area have come to my attention (not as well preserved) which are just as significant and extensive Standing Stone sites.  Compare these Standing Stones to their European counterparts- in some cases the sites are very similar, but in other respects they differ.  For instance- the Standing Stones themselves are sometimes very similar.  If one were to place a single standing stone from the Callanish, Scotland site and place it amongst a New England Standing stone site, the stone may not seem out of place.  Both are granite and are shaped out in like manner, is what I am getting at.  A big difference though, is the lay-out of the site- in New England, the Standing Stones were often placed directly on top of bedrock on the crest or slope of a hill or high ledge.  The European counterparts were usually placed in a more circular formation on top of an man-made earthen bank or mound in a more distinctly circular formation- the New England Standing Stone sites are in circular formation too, actually, but were originally spread out in a much wider dispertion and range across the whole hillside (the New England sites were originally vastly BIGGER sites, but the sad part is, less of these sites remain.)  So here we see a difference.  There are no true "Druid's Circles" in New England like there are in Europe- clearly there is a difference between the identity, tribe, or nationality of the builders if you will.  However, the same WISDOM or knowledge of the construction/use of these Standing Stones IS incorporated into the sites on both sides of the Atlantic.  Some of the differences may account for the differences in landscape and the appropriate way of land use that these different people had worked out.  For instance, both ancient people's in this case, or comparative study, the Algonquians and ancient Celts, had traditions that the souls or spirits, or some form of the etheric essence of great chiefs, matriarchs, sages and medicine people were imbued or became trans-mutated into the stones themselves (becoming great guardian spirits), thus, on both sides of the water, when looking at standing stones from certain angles, one sees abstract profiles of either a facial or bodily profile imbued into the stone, and if one is really tuned in, or sensitive to these sites, will note something etheric about these stones, perhaps validating the traditions of the ancients- I would maintain that these stones retain an intelligent consciousness of their own, however that may be possible, and are capable of communicating or interacting with sensitive individuals who spend time at these sites.  So here we see a similarity in this comparative study.  Of course, in Europe, the interaction or worship at Standing Stone sites was outlawed in the Middle Ages, or the beginning of the Christian era, as basically was these sites in colonial times in America, thus the knowledge of these sites went "underground."

The land of Egypt is also a very interesting place.  Even during dynastic times, the kingdom was a Matriarchy.  Behind the seat of those great Pharaohs  that the mainstream Egyptologists have pushed to idolize, was the "Lady of the House", the retainer of land and ownership.  The male Pharaoh had to marry into the FEMALE line.  That is why the goddess Isis is depicted with a throne seat on the crown of her head-dress: she is the Lady of the House, the true retainer of wealth and power, not the male.  The word "Egypt" and thus "Egyptology" (the discipline), etc., is a bit of a misnomer which comes down to the Western world from the Greek tradition, and not the indigenous tradition of what we think of as the land of Egypt today.  For Egypt is really the Land of Khem, motherland of the Khmeitian civilization.  Khem meaning "the black land" or "black Earth."  We get the words "alCHEMy" and "CHEMistry" today from Khem, as in the Land of Khem.  The pre-dynastic civilization of this land can also closely compare to what we see in the above two comparative examples of the Eastern United States and Europe, with all the similarities and differences.  For example, the more ancient sites were earthen and stone mounds, which were generally built up over time, whereupon pyramid and temple sites were later built upon.  The Standing Stone was just like that of the America's (the Incas had Standing Stones too, etc.) and ancient Europe, still to be found to this day in what is NOW (but hasn't always been) the dessert, and at some point, and I do not know how this evolution process took place, but the Standing Stone was the pre-cursor of the Obelisk.  The Khemetians were said to have been made up of 42 different distinct tribes- no wonder they were so great!

The geology also speaks wonders.  For instance, the Azores Islands are in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, and there are remains of a great, ancient megalithic civilization to be found in those parts, nobody knowing of course quite who those people were.  Great stone walls reminiscent of the New England country, stone chambers, perched boulders, etc.  The Azores are the remaining mountaintops (now islands) of sunken landmasses that sit atop the Dolphin Ridge of the Atlantic.  That is straight up scholarly geological fact.  The Canary Islands are also an interesting place out in the Atlantic a bit closer to the North African coast- there is much debate about just who the Guanches, the Native people of the island were.  We do know that they were dark skinned and built like tall basketball players, who fought against the Spanish colonizers for hundreds of years.  Any survivors today are mixed descendants.  There are six Canary Islands.  On the island of Tenerife alone, there are six step pyramids made out of the local stone, aligned to the solstice, equinox points and horizons.  All throughout those islands are stone cairns, stone mounds and stone chambers as well.  Stone Chambers in the America's, Atlantic islands, Europe, Mediterranean and pre-dynastic Egypt.  Just like the Standing Stones, one can do a comparative study and analysis of these structures as well, finding both similarities and differences, indicating that different ethnic tribal groups of people built these structures, yet there seems to be SOME similarities in the wisdom behind the builders of these structures as well as cosmology.

Concerning Col. James Churchward's books on Mu: some of my recent posts show some possible independent validations of his research which I will not repeat here.  Just check out the earlier posts.  One thing that he said about the Maya really got my attention: he said that only a Mayan high priest of "Chief" ever wore yellow feathers in their head-dress.  He was talking strictly about the Maya in this case.  Sachem Massasoit, the Wampanoag Chief (Sachem) who greeted the Pilgrims in 1620 was Yellow Feather.  Massasoit means Yellow Feather.  An interesting name.  Even among the Algonquian only special people are traditionally denoted to wear a yellow-feathered head-dress- pay close attention to people's traditional regalia to this day and you might notice something.  So here is another independent validation of something this "rogue" scholar (Churchward) wrote about.  I do not agree with all of his views, but things like use of sacred symbolism throughout different dispersion of cultures and similarities in hieroglyphic languages is very interesting and valid research in my opinion. 

I could go on about conical shaped standing stones, conical shaped hand-held prayer stones, conical shaped head-dresses, dunce caps, witches hats, etc. but I won't for now.  I have covered before geological cataclysms of earthquakes, floods and volcanoes (5,000 years ago) which rose ocean levels, sunk continental shelves, split Martha's Vineyard off the mainland and destroyed the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete. 

I maintain that all of these respective stone sites and the traditions thereof are products of the indigenous native cultures of the land these sites are located, whether the Algonquian of the American Northeast or the Guanches of the Canary Islands.  However, I also maintain that there is "something else" about the tradition itself of these sites, and the wisdom and understanding of the builders, that may have a common heritage lost to us in the depths of pre-history, the most ancient of ancient times. 

[Note to edit in:  Some researchers would place stone structures such as the great stone fort of the Aran Islands off of the coast of Ireland, or the great stone fort of Zimbabwe, to be of "Atlantean" origin in their time and place.  This line of inquiry of research is in fact, valid.  On another note, as for comparing Standing Stone sites in the American Northeast compared to Europe: there are just too many stylistic differences in terms of building style, selection of stone, lay-out of the sites, and what-not, between the different cultures who built these sites.  The one exception I have noted, which I actually used above, is the very western-most coast and islands off of Scotland, such as Callinash.  The Standing Stones there are stylistically similar to American Northeast sites as well as the lay-out.  And actually, when I was a very young kid, researching lake monsters such as Loch Ness (I was a serious researcher back then on that subject), I remember reading how there are many geological anomalies in Scotland that tie it to the Northeast of the America's.  And it is true, for we have our own Lake monsters here: The Gloucester MA. Sea Serpent, "Champ" of Lake Champlain (Vermont/ new York), the lake monster of Lake Memphremagog in Quebec, and the "Ogopogo" lake serpent of Lake Okanagan in British Colombia.  And there may be more.  I remember reading that both Lake Champlain (Vermont) and Loch Ness in Scotland became land-locked under the same geological circumstances.  In fact, it went on to say that the geology and rocks of Scotland in that area, geologists having taken samples of very low levels, match that of the American Northeast, implying that Scotland was actually once a part of the American Northeast in deep antiquity, hundreds of thousands or maybe millions of years ago (according to the standard dating methods the scientists use, which may not be perfect).  So, some of the Standing Stone sites in western most Scotland and the most westerly islands of that area could in fact originally have belonged to the same culture of people belonging to the American Northeast, who would have represented the parent culture.  However, if this is the case, it would probably place the origins of the construction of some of these Standing Stone sites in the tens of thousands or the hundreds of thousands of years, which does not seem too unreasonable to me, given the fact that the pillars and standing stones were "built" or "placed" to last, but is something that a "stool eating hog" (meaning, a scientist or academic; materialistic rascals and fools misguiding the public) would have trouble accepting, even when the geology is in support of the evidence.]

Also, be on the look-out for a future posting of a Standing Stone site I will do a write-up on.  I know for a fact I am the first one to have knowledge about this site in our times, which includes huge collapsed pillars, etc.

"The Created World Came Out From the Mouth of Ra..."

"The Created World Came Out From the Mouth of Ra"...

Here is an interesting, slightly off-topic video called "the Occult Secrets of Grammar" which focuses on some of the Egyptian philosophies and sciences.  I say that it is only slightly off-topic, and to the point where my own understandings have led me, slightly off-topic sounds about right, if it is even off-topic at all.  For instance, I know from first-hand that the Falcon (an Egyptian symbol of Ra, the "Sun King", or the "Great Sun") was also an important symbol in Native Algonquian traditions, basically symbolizing the same thing.  This is not widely understood though.  Native Nations here on Turtle Island are the "Children of the Sun." 

I have also come across a stone depiction in my area of what I can only say to be "Kek", who was the androgynous frog/serpent fertility symbol of the "world's before."  Now, this stone may not have been known locally as Kek (the name of the Egyptian deity), but in some way that we do not still fully understand, the stone found in New England looks like a representation of Kek, or probably something just like Kek.  For some reason you can't go wrong with it- one only needs to look at it in such light.  It took me over a year before I realized the stone I was looking at in my area was just like a representation of Kek.  I kept asking myself if the stone was a frog, or a snake, or somehow both?  Then, I learned of the Egyptian Kek and I threw my hands up and said "how is this possible." (Note: I need to do a future post on this stone.) 

Than I remembered that the same geological upheavals that shook the Northeast region of North America 5,000 years ago also had an impact on other areas around the Atlantic sea-board.  For instance, it is during this time that Martha's Vineyard and other islands split off the mainland of New England and that ocean levels rose.  It is also this same 5,000 year period in the Atlantic that sunk the island of Crete in the Mediterranian and put an end to the Minoan civilization who were known to have connections with Egypt.  The volcanoes of Iceland and the (sometimes) active volcanoes on some of the islands in the Bahamas are remnant volcanic activities from this period of 5,000 years ago.  This could fit in well with Plato's account of the sinking of Atlantis is we are to look at his accounting of the submergence of this land in light of Lunar months (from the time of Plato), which the ancient Greeks may have counted in rather than our modern year.  Also, at this 5,000 year time-line one sees the proliferation of the Neolithic culture all over the world, erecting megaliths such as Stone Henge, (as well as the proliferation of the Bronze Age) seemingly overnight, and there is no satisfactorily academic explanation for any of this unless if we put the sunken land of Atlantis into the equation, taking seriously the accounts which Plato describes in his works Timaeus and Critaeus".  There could have been earlier stone-building cultures for tens of thousands of years still.

I think that the megalithic cultures go back to the Native civilizations and cultures.  That they are the great "lost ones" in this wisdom tradition.  For instance, the stone-works and pyramids of Egypt go back before dynastic times in Egypt.  In other words, the proliferators of the Egyptian culture and the megalith building in Egypt goes back thousands of years before dynastic times, to a darker, more Native race, "the Children of the Sun".  The later Egyptians mixed and learned from these people.  The empire was later corrupted by the Amun-priesthood, and Amunhotep IV (changing his name to Pharaoh Akhnaton and promoting Aton-ism) tried to give Egypt back to her people, too little too late, the corruption was already too wide-spread.  There will never be another leader in world history like him.  In some strange way the Algonquian people, and probably all people of the Eastern Seaboard and especially going down into Yucatan, kept the original teachings- it's like it stayed in the state that Egypt had gone through before dynastic times, when Native people were proliferating these teachings and knowledge, when the philosophy, religion and movement of the "Children of the Sun" was still in a high (pure) state.  I can find no other explanation why I would come across a stone in the American Northeast that seemingly depicts Kek, while Kek is also depicted in the Egyptian culture, actually having it's roots in the proto-Egyptian culture thousands of years prior, and that is where I think you will find the seemingly confounding cultural parallels.  The Atlantic was also more navigable in those times, which is a straightforward geological fact.

I have even seen collapsed stone tri-lathons in New England.  And I still have to get some pics of the pyramids in Holliston- they are much like some of the earthen/stone mounds I have shown before, but much more distinctly pyramid-shaped, surrounded by what is now moat-like swamp.

Well, we are all speaking English today.  So enjoy the video below, slightly off-topic about Egyptian wording (whirling the world) and spells (just over 9 mins):

Deer Stone Effigy

Deer Stone Effigy

Located on one of the great hills of Milford, MA. is the following Deer Stone Effigy.  I only have this one picture of it at the moment.  Maybe in another post I will post more pics of this stone.  As we are now in the summer, the stone is overgrown with lush brush.  The stone is a boulder, worked out into the effigy statue of a deer in a sitting upright position.  (Much like how an Easter Island moai is a "statue", the stones in this area need to be recognized before it is too late).

I also give a picture or two of deers sitting down in similar positions for comparison to the Deer Stone effigy statue.  The Deer Stone, which sits in a prominent position upon a prominent hill-side:

Looking at the above stone, upon inspection of it's features, one can clearly see where the ears, nose, ridge of the back and hind legs are depicted in the stone statue.  Below are two pictures of deer in similar positions for comparison:

My intuition tells me that the stone is on prominent hillside and rock ledge, which is why it is discernable to the people of today.  If it was in some lowland, as many (some, but certainly not all) ceremonial stone features are, this stone may have been completely buried by forest/ swamp/ sediment.  To my intuition's discernment, this stone was probably placed on the hillside in present form some 1,000 to 7,000 years ago, or perhaps longer still.  Given the geographical upheavals in this region some 5,000 years ago (splitting of Martha's Vineyard from the mainland, rise of the Atlantic Ocean levels, etc.), the deer stone may be 4,000 or so years old; however, it is on a prominent hillside and may not have been affected by the upheavals of 5,000 years ago, so it could be older still.

Furthermore, I do not see this deer stone as being representative of a clan symbol, such as the symbol of the deer clan.  I agree 100% that these stone-works are Native in origin, from the ancestors of the Algonquian people.  But, stone-works such as this deer effigy may go back to a time where the people of today may not have such a good grasp on the knowledge base of these ancestor's.  For instance, in some cultural traditions the deer represents the First Man coming forth in primordial times.  I do not want to over-analyze this stone statue, but I would like to express this notion for people to think about- my gut tells me that this deer effigy represents an idea or a sacred notion which the people who put the stone into place thousands of years ago knew about and obviously felt they must express. 

That is it for this post and concludes my basic thoughts on the deer stone effigy.  Stay tuned for some exciting up-coming posts.

On Materialism (An Off-Topic Perspective)

On Materialism (An Off-Topic Perspective)

I will keep this post a little more old-fashioned.  I could get into things like the Egyptian concept of the weighing of the heart (see "The Coming Forth By Day" aka the "Egyptian Book of the Dead") but I won't.

What is it that people value in today's culture?  Do we want a sense of peace and serenity, or does that escape most people's attention?  I would argue that it probably does.  Most people, even while driving are talking/texting on their newest cell phones, which should be illegal (unless you are a police officer and must multi-task, in which case you will have training.)  In other words, most people have made themselves too busy on a piece of technology (an un-healthy distraction), that they do not take in the world around them.  Talk about tunnel vision.  And most people only concern themselves with menial drivel and nonsense- as if they have nothing original or insightful to contribute to the greater good of man's experience here on Earth, perhaps even including their own personal experience.  They are what I call "repeater's" or "regurgitators", and do not seem to possess the faculties of critical thinking and mind expansion/ awareness.  Others might refer to this phenomenon as the "Parable of the Extras (Mayavada Vedanta)" .  

Or, let's maybe try this angle: let's take a look at real estate development compared to the natural forces of the Earth itself.  Yesterday I pulled into the Target store located on Fortune Blvd. in Milford, MA., pretty much a mega-shopping vicinity outside my neighborhood and the woods/ hills that I frequent.  They had some good Produce on sale such as Ranier cherries from Washington State and berries as well.  They also have a good coffee shop inside.  Anyway, I pulled in on the edge of a thunder and lightning storm, and a giant double-rainbow spectrum was in the sky.  This is a usual phenomenon in this area, actually, and I believe it is due to the landscape of the area, in (what were once and in a sense still are) nice foot hill valleys at the headwaters of the Charles River.  The point I am trying to make is that even if they place shopping centers around what was once (and still can be) sacred land, the natural forces and elements of a place still prevail.  These forces totally trump anything people are capable of developing.  The processional gyro-magnetic forces, hyperbolic torsion fields and the like are still very much active in a given area (for a great lecture on torsion fields, magnetic forces etc. click here for a great presenation by Santos Bonacci- just under 3 hours, it takes a couple minutes for the discussion to start up).

Another area to look into is the rhetoric that many modern day people, such as in the field of science, do not recognize the significance (or existence) of the human soul/ spirit.  Therefore, this line of thinking, which is socialist/Marxist in origin (a poisonous/ ruinous political ideology), has filtered through into the Legacy Media (major networks), Hollywood, and just about every University and field of academia; it is no wonder than, that people are the way they are, as described in the first paragraph of this post; the real knowledge of our roots as a nation (originally established as a Great Republic by the founding fathers, owing a great debt to some of the Native Nations, as well as Old World legacies such as that of the ancient Greeks, in terms of conduct and idealogy,) has been suppressed in a certain sense and kept hidden from the general public.  For a great over-view of the socialist movement in the United States, see the documentary "Architects of Western Decline: A Study on the Frankfurt School & Cultural Marxism" here (Architects of Western Decline) .  Although the documentary doesn't get into this, I would add that there were groups of people and interests trying to tear this country down since the very start, and certainly by the 2nd presidential election.  It is no wonder that after the Civil War, which saw foreign interests gain power and ground over Washington D.C. and the people of the United States, such as off-shore, international banking, the eventual establishment of the Federal Reserve in Puerto Rico by international bankers who do not have the best interests for our nation at heart, (the non-fictional basis for films such as "Pirates of the Carribean"), which is why I say that Frank and Jesse James were heroes, not criminals.  Anyway, it is no wonder that after the Civil War era, writers like Ignatious Donnelly came out with books such as "Atlantis: the Antediluvian World" (1882), because there was something in the air of the public conciousness of the American people: something had been lost.  No slave ever received 40 acres and a mule.  If anything, through banking, more people became indebted into a less tangible form of slavery (known as debt.)

Mindless consumerism culture (if you could even call that culture) has taken threshold over a great many people.  The young people of today are arrogant, vain, and un-learned, playing things like "the knock-out game" on strangers, which is Russian-roulette with a stranger's life (hospitalizing strangers- people who may be providing for their families/ others, etc.)  Put a kid in a gym for a year or two under the coaching of some asshole, and these kids think they can do anything, like they are above others- I am talking 16-17 year old kids here.  The truth is they are still just peons, but not enough people put these little brats in their place, including their own parents (probably because they are also arrogant fools.)  This is allowed to happen all over, but is really toxic and dangerous to society at large.

Take for instance, my family.  I am not trying to toot my own horn.  Okay, I'll lay this on the table.  The property I live on was owned by my parents before it was developed into a homestead, when it was all just woods.  My father got the property for $50,000.  That's not a lot of money in today's market for 3 acres of real estate in a good, quiet neighborhood.  When the house was constructed, my parents won a lottery drawing at the local technical high school- they laid down some of the work, installed the electricity, etc., for much cheaper than if we had hired somebody else.  The people who laid the foundation of the house and did the rest of the work live down the street from us.  They are nice people and I see them around from time to time.  Once the house was finished, with one exception, my family were solely responsible for all of the landscaping and yard work.  My father rented a roto-tiller and us three boys and my father put in the lawn ourselves, tilling the dirt, putting down the grass seed.  We put in and constructed the brick/marble walk-way that leads to the front door ourselves.  We built some of the stone walls around the garden beds ourselves.  My mother is a senior member of the town's garden club and it is her favorite hobby.  Our yard looks more glorious than some of the people's yards down the street who hire landscaper's.  But then again, they all bought their houses after the fact- the land they live on doesn't mean as much to them anymore.  They are too transient (to be honest some people in my family are no exception to that).  I see people drive by who would probably assume that we do hire a landscaper, although we have never hired one- since I moved back I still do a lot of yard work to assist.

I have recently been helping out for friends of the family across town in yard work and at the town's historical society where they are long since members.  They are my parent's age and are friends from church (my family are from a Christian Science background- not to be confused with Scientology.  We are the people who learn the power of prayer and apply it to our daily lives as well as things like healing- this branch of the Christian church was founded in the New England area.)  Although I am not a church member, I have never had a need for pharmaceutical drugs, have never had a vaccination or flu shot, that kind of thing.  As far as my fitness goes I am as sharp as they come pretty much- I am a former marathon runner (I still run but not such long a distance anymore but I don want to work myself back up to at least a half-marathon shape), I have trained in traditional martial arts and healing arts (mind/body), and am capable of breaking things like bricks with my bare hands, flying kicks, full splits and the like.  Yet you really wouldn't know these things if you looked at me, because I am not an ego-driven show off.  And the fact that I am growing my hair out is not understood by people either, probably.  Yes, there is some Native ancestry mixed into my family, as well as the Euro-American lines of descendancy.  I see no fault in researching James Churchward's books on the Lost Continent of Mu or books about Atlantis.  After all, the stone sites here in New England are very impressive, and nobody has a full picture of what the ancestor's were up to, or the past's megalithic cultures, which seem to be strangely connected or linked, perhaps springing from a common source from a past age.

I have been through hardship too, working myself to the brinks of my limit/ physical exhaustion/ capacity (and not just in exercise, but in hard labor).  That's all I will say about that.  But my message here is: stay humble.  Practice being meek.  Take a walk out in nature, and notice the blooming flowers of the rose bush, the cherry tree, the mountain laurel, the rhodedendron.  Walk a hillside and know you are in a sacred place.  Think more local, be less of a mass-consumer.  Also, knowledge is important.  Whether it's books about health food, or cultural expeditions, or books on khemitology or megalithic culture, astrology (I recommend the "Cosmic Clocks" by Michel Gauquelin, my edition is from 1969 and the book is probably out of print), learn to appreciate and collect books, and when combined and applied to your own life's experience (the life experience is the foundation upon which all other understanding must be applied), you then become the person with the knowledge, at least more so than most, something far more important than today's plastic culture.  I have come to even appreciate the works of Zecharia Sitchin; think about it, this scholar of the highest intellect was the first to translate many of the ancient, Sumerian cuniform tablets which were the cornerstone of the ideas put forth in his books.  Nobody else translated these tablets before him... but he did, and he got a lot of it right.  The United Press International reviewed his first book as "heavyweight scholarship..."  I may not agree about all the ideas he puts forth, such as who the "gods among men" were (not that I dis-agree with it, either), but he is very close to figuring such riddles out, is how I feel about it. 

I was going to add a few things but I will save those topics for a later post.  Concerning: Freemasonry (not all bad, only certain interests such as Oliver Cromwell's cabinet in colonial times which unfortuneatly sometimes make the loudest splash), the practice of the craft (masonry) of freemasonry by certain individuals, Native people influenced by the movement of freemasonry, and the fact that as I surmised above, some of the Native understandings and the understandings of freemasonry seem to have a common origin from some well-spring in a long forgotten age.  Such as for instance, the ancestors of both people, as evidenced by ancient sites and scant records, understood the use of Standing Stones or Obelisks, in some cases in a very mutual way.  Also, in the Revolutionary War George Washington's body guard was a Pokonoket Wampanoag man.  He was an orphan who had shown Washington, who passed through his town (I think in Rhode Island), a cloth with some of the sacred symbolism of his ancient ancestors.  Washington, being a freemason, understood this symbolism and what it meant and so hired the young man's services as body guard.  Also we have David Ninham, sachem of the Wappinger tribe, building stone chambers in Putnam county NY also during the Revolutionary War for a dual purpose (practical and ceremonial purpose... the ceremonial function outliving the practical purpose.)  I have also seen, in the town of Holliston (where there are ancient pyramids by the way... leading up to the grand pyramid on the hill), stonework from the colonial era that seemed to have both Native and Freemasonic influences (a huge boulder shaped out into a pyramid shape.)  Well, okay, so there you go.  Never mind about that other post.  Instead of going more in-depth, I will leave it here for one to chew over.  Hopefully later I will get some pics up of say, the pyramidal boulder, or maybe even the pyramids themselves if I feel like it.

Have a good day!

Stone Chamber Water-Works, Milford MA.

Stone Chamber Water-Works, Milford MA.

In this post I present a Stone Chamber located in the hills of Milford, MA. which I strongly feel to be Native American in origin.  My hunch would be, that it is an early colonial structure, Native built.  I have a few reasons for saying this.  Let me start by saying that this structure appears to have a dual function:

First, is the practical function.  This Temple, or Stone Chamber, is part of a water-works.  Up-hill from the site of the stone-work is a great vernal pool pond on a flat plane, between some rock outcroppings.  The vernal pool than trickles out into a stream which runs down-hill, than forming another, more swampy vernal pool, which once again trickles into a stream which runs through the Stone Chamber.  I do not believe there was ever any colonial path that went through the area, as we are talking many rocky outcrops and ledges here on a great and vast hillside.  I do believe that the stone walls, a feature of the Stone Chamber as you will see, were built to funnel the water down the hillside in a waterworks to control the water for whatever purpose.

Second, is the clear ceremonial function of this Temple.  From what I was able to chew over and discern, there was no clear reason why a Stone Chamber should have been built into the water-works here, other than for a holy, or sacred, reason.  I have also noticed, as we will see, at least one rusty pale bucket in the direct vicinity of this Stone Chamber, which is an artifact that gives us a clue that there was post-colonial Native American ceremonialism involved at this spot.  It is well-documented that pale buckets (usually flashy silver before rusting) , pans and the like are sometimes left at places of ceremony in the Native American tradition. 

So in other words, this stone-work served a practical and ceremonial function, as a practical water work, and as a holy spring/ stone chamber site.

Third, is the land ownership of the area in question.  This area of Milford, and around the Hopkinton and Holliston lands was exclusively Native-held lands until the late date (in this area) of 1701.  Think about that- King Philip's War was 1675-6, and for this area around Milford, MA. to be exclusively Indian until 1701 is significant.  Harvard College illegally purchased the land, even hiring mercenaries to murder some of the elders opposing the land grab, a crime which Harvard University today still needs to stand trial for.  The Native American presence was then marginalized, descendants becomming the "invisible indian", the "indian farmer", or perceived as a "person of color" (viewed as non-Native although of Native descent),  a "gypsie", or was known to be "the last red man visiting the wilderness in our town, sometimes seen by the townsfolk", and somehow, just about every town seems to have these "last of the red men" who by the way, all had children and grandchildren, which seemed to escape the attention of the people calling them the "last proud vestiges of their race."

Fourth, there is documented records that in the towns of Sherborn, Natick and Dover, in the mid to late 1600's, that these towns all have Native built water-works, which when compared to the Milford Stone Chamber and water-works, look like they could be contemporary- I have seen first-hand the water-works in Sherborn and Natick, although these places do not have a Stone Chamber, the area around Milford was probably special enough to warrant the building of a stone chamber.  For instance, there are pre-colonial cairns, stone mounds and rock placements nearby to the Stone Chamber in Milford, as well as the fact that the stone-work/ spring is on a sacred hillside.  Also, when Native people built stone-works in these places in the early colonial era, it was to serve their needs and purposes, and not the white man's.  So, this particular stone-work in Milford would have looked to the European eye that the Indian's had adopted their ways, but on closer examination they were keeping things Native as well, hiding traditions in plain sight.  

Below I present the pictures of the Milford Stone Chamber and Water-Works.  Yes, this is clearly something more than a water-works, with the knowledge of "Stone Chamber" (Native Temples) building and ceremonialism incorporated into the work:
