Marcahuasi Plateau, Peru

Marcahuasi Plateau, Peru

Shared here is an hour long video about Simulacra and rock formations on a high plateau in Marcahuasi, Peru.  Simulacra seems to be a world-wide phenomenon practiced by just about every-one of the oldest of cultures- simulacra is found all over the America's, in Africa, Asia... everywhere.  Some people wonder if simulacra formations such as a profile of a face on a rock ledge are totally natural (hard to tell with weathering of the stone in so many cases) or touched up ever so slightly by the hands of the ancestors. 
I agree with the viewpoints that such places were probably touched up ever so slightly to bring the rock feature to life, after having perceived the potential (while others seem to be totally natural); and that at the end of the day it doesn't really matter because the sites are so fantastic that nobody can deny the awesomeness of such sites.
Also for the record, there are many good simulacra to be found in the hills of Milford, MA.  I have seen several serpents, profile faces, bird (eagle), turtle and such worked into either giant boulders or rock ledges.  This is different from "Manitou Stones" or "statues" that I detailed in a recent previous post.  Sometimes Standing Stones in the New England region also feature simulacra, and how could they not because the stones themselves are alive.

Here is the video to the site about Marcahuasi Peru (the "Masma Culture"):

/\~~SUN GAZING~~/\ "The Solar Powered Human"~~/\

/\~~SUN GAZING~~/\ "The Solar Powered Human"~~/\

The following is an 8 minute YouTube clip about the benefits of Solar Gazing.  The uploader of the video is right- sun gazing does not blind the eye if you do it correctly (build up gradually.)  In fact, sun gazing is one of the most beneficial, if not THE most beneficial practice that anyone can pick up.  I have known about the benefits of sun gazing for a long time.  The sun is the source of all Life on this planet and should be looked upon as the #1 source of nourishment for human growth and development (just as is the case for all growth and development.)  I share the video below.  I recommend to anybody to look into (and practice) more about sun gazing.

If You Are Looking For Pyramids (Massive Stone Mounds)/ Temple Complexes In New England....

If You Are Looking For Pyramids (Massive Stone Mounds)/ Temple Complexes In New England.... You Must Check Out Milford (MA.)

In the last post I had mentioned that by the Echo Lake Stone Chamber there are two large pyramidal stone mounds above a ravine, either next to or incorporated into the Stone Chamber complex (or rather the Stone Chamber may be incorporated into these pyramids, er, I mean "mounds".)  Again, the ruins of structures such as these could be confused for glacial till.  However upon close observation (not complicated stuff if you research rock piles), these stones were put into place, and the contours conform to that of a mound/ pyramidal shape.  This is not to say that glacial till does not occur, but in this case we are not looking at glacial till.  Now, the ones by the Echo Lake Stone Chamber are maybe 25 ft. in height (a rough guess.)  There are also massive boulders around these stone mounds, as one goes up from the bottom of the ravine.  There is another massive stone mound elsewhere by Echo Lake, maybe 10 ft. higher than these other two.

However... the great grand-daddy of stone mounds, or in this case, ah, screw it, I have to call it out for what it is, I have examined it well enough and I am no fool (not my fault if no one else is on to it)-- the great grand-daddy PYRAMID in Milford MA. is on the other side of the street from Echo Lake/ WildCat, UP IN THE HILLS.  Up there one finds a MASSIVE COMPLEX.  First there are massive cairn fields and complexes of stone walls.  And there are MANY Standing Stones, some up to six ft. in length.  That part is obvious (if you have an eye to see).  What is also obvious is a ring of boulders capping a plateau peak, but not THE peak... but as far as the pyramid is concerned, the great boulder in the middle of the ring of boulders, which features simulacra (at least two human profile faces, one looking up and one looking west) is in fact the "Cap-stone" of this "pyramid" complex.  Or, we may call this boulder a "proto-capstone."  And in a more natural state, perhaps this cap-stone is a better way to go, anyway. 

Now... on to why I am actually calling this a Pyramid.  It goes BEYOND just a cairn field, or a multi-leveled complex of stone walls, it goes BEYOND the fact that there are dozens upon DOZENS of Standing Stones in that one spot (as well as God-Stones and Bird Effigies) and it goes beyond a massive boulder w/ massive quartz veins surrounded by smaller boulders capping the peak of a plateau.  On at least FOUR SIDES going up the hill, there are massive ruins of stone mounds... the largest stone mound rubble I have ever seen- again, not glacial till and NOT modern quarry rubble but stone mound ruins.  It goes down to the highway corridor and ends above where there was construction for modern infrastructure, down (or up) a wooded hillside, through where there had been some modern quarrying (but any researcher into rock piles, etc. worth their salt will be able to immediately tell what is quarry rubble and what is older cairn/ stone mound), and it goes down the hill to where the power-lines now are.

Now, the site is hurt.  There was late 19th- mid 20th century quarrying that hurt the site.  They put power-lines in which has hurt the site, there is a highway corridor down below which has obviously had an impact on the site/ area (with major development across the corridor by "Fortune Blvd.") and also, and I hate to say this because the mountain bikers are really a group of people, they just don't know any better, smaller things get impacted by their jumps/ ramps/ etc. they put up in the area.  For instance one ramp had two Standing Stones in it.  They were running over a large Bird Manitou Stone in the middle of a major trail on their bikes (it was on it's side) and I found a purple crystal arrowhead in a dirt jump they had made. 

Anyway, as I said, the "Stone Mounds" are MASSIVE that run up several sides of the hill- I am OBVIOUSLY looking at the ruins of a massive temple complex and/or pyramid (built into that particular corner of the hillside which encompasses several different angles conducive to what should qualify as a true pyramid.)  Also, there is a large mounded earthen bank which is a part of this complex as well- below and above this earthen bank which seems to buffer different level zones of the structure are all kinds of massive stone ruins.  Many stones here are shaped out into triangles/ pyramidal shaped, standing stones, etc. and many stones shaped out in the Native style.  Also, it is true that there has been many phases of modern construction and infrastructure ruining entire portions of this complex.  But, the complex is STILL HERE.  There is even a large deer stone effigy.  Also, where the complex has been irreplaceably damaged such as by quarrying, for instance, the complex picks back up beyond the spot that had been damaged. 

Like I said, any serious researcher into this area of research should know what they are looking at and wouldn't be fooled by the modern quarrying- where that starts and ends should be obvious, as should the fact of the older ruins.  This site is a pyramid.  Even though mostly in ruins, there should be enough here for people to realize that this is one large Native-style stone ruins complex. 

Below is a picture I have not shared before.  It is from the same hill that I am talking about, but is sort of out of bounds, or perhaps on the very extreme edge, of the zone of interest that I am talking about.  In this regard, it is not the best picture to share concerning this site because there are much better examples more in the heart of the zone I am referring to in this post.  However, concerning how massive stone mound ruins may be confused for glacial till to an un-trained eye; again, not the best picture but it will do a fine enough job to show what I am referring to when I make this comparison (again, I have no new pictures because I am without a camera at the moment):

So yes,  the stone ruins of what makes up the pyramids is like the above picture sort of.  That is just a snapshot of a so-so- example, though.  When standing under these ruins, they are panoramic, as far as the eye can see and in the heart of the zone of interest, above, to the left, to the right, etc. It just continues and at varying degrees of angles of different slopes of the hillside.

Also on this hill are some pics I have shared before.  For example this chamber or underground room:

Stone ruins everywhere:

An example of a bird stone (one of many, and a smaller example at that) on top of a perched boulder:

A typical cairn on the hillside.  The cairn itself is sacred like the hillside itself.  Note the pyramidal center stone (top of the turtle shell):

A simulacra.  A turtle's head (looking straight-on):

6 ft. Standing Stone w/ other Stoneworks:

Interesting stack in the stone wall that runs up the hill:

Below is the Egyptian god Horus.  There seems to be a stone on the hill (no pic yet) that is very much like a proto-type Horus stone.  It is a large bird effigy like an Eagle, that stands up maybe 2.5- 3 ft in height.  The stone features a "Horus" (or something like it) type head-dress.

As far as the dimensions and general look of the Eagle stone, sort of "proto-type of Horus-looking" is concerned, this ancient stone from Australia's Gympie Pyramid in Queensland is a very close match.  The stones have the same general dimensions, height, look, and "feel" to them, except in Australia we have an "ape man" (some say it is Thoth depicted as an Ape) and in Milford MA. we have an "proto-type of Horus-looking" Eagle Manitou Stone:

(Note: Without available pictures I am trying to give the reader the general feel for what the Eagle Stone looks like.)

Some other important points about the location of the Stone Ruins complex in Milford MA.  It is the largest hill at the headwaters of the Charles River (which runs into other river systems and also the Atlantic in modern day Boston Harbor).  Formerly the hills of Milford were known as "Magomisquog" or "Makomsakook", "the great rock place affording a grand view", or "great place of upright stones affording a grand view."  One can see the Blue Hills from it's peak (still) as well as Mt. Wachusett (before the modern tree line), as well as other large hills/ small mountains in other directions.  Also, Mavor and Dix do get into the subject of ancient Algonkian people engineering things such as Cedar Swamps.  I think they are right.  In fact, before the modern dam the Echo Lake area might be an example of this.  The swamp under the ravines of the massive stone mounds near the Stone Chamber is still a Cedar Swamp inlet, for example.  Wherever there are pyramids in the world there are also usually engineered water-works along with it such as in Central and South America, Mound building cultures in the US South East, in Egypt, possibly Bolivia, certainly in India, South East Asia, etc. etc.  I have noticed that in the woods of Milford, in the general area as the pyramid hill, some of the trails seem to be dried up stream beds or "canals" or ancient "run ways" for waterworks.  For instance, some of the rocks are rounded as if they belong in a stream/ river, and in severe storms they will become flooded and flow with water.  Yet they are looked at as nothing more than trails for modern people to walk on.  An interesting side note at least. 

Concerning this hill we are either looking at a true pyramid or a proto-pyramid, in either case it is equally as impressive.  That is all for this post.

October 2016 Notes

October 2016 Notes

Notes/ insights for October 2016:

-I am still without a camera at the moment.  This is the reason why there have seldomly been any new posts lately. 

- On to Stone Sites.  First of all, it is very important that I make this very clear: among many other things, Milford MA. is the land of Standing Stones.  There are many Standing Stone sites on high prominent ledges throughout the hills of Milford (and some nice ones in Hopkinton, MA. too.)  These are hardcore Stone Circle/ Stonehenge sites.  Many of the stones still lay in a collapsed state (usually with some mild growth/ soil build-up over parts of the stone).  Others are (back) up in place.  One such site is a high ledge above a marsh, which would have been a fresh water inlet thousands of years ago from the headwaters of the Charles River.  One standing stone that I got a good look at is a "God Stone" when looked at from a profile view.  It is looking west to the horizon of the setting sun.  It's features are well defined- a conical headdress/ cap, well defined head/ nose, shoulder and body.  It stands maybe 5 ft. high.  There are several more Standing Stone sites in the hills of Milford (and Hopkinton)- the Standing Stones range in size from 6 inches to 12-15 ft. and everything in between.  Some of the Standing Stones are large columns like at Stonehenge in England, others are smaller and conical shaped, etc. etc.  These sites are old, probably (or rather, obviously) thousands of years old.

- To "test a hypothesis" as Peter Waksman has suggested in a recent Rock Piles post.  I have noticed in the hills of Milford MA. (and at Agassiz Rock in Manchester, MA.) for instance, that Standing Stone sites and propped boulders/ circles or alignments of boulders lend to each other.  For instance, there is a collapsed Standing Stone on the same ledge as Agassiz Rock and the surrounding boulders:

  The Standing Stone site in Milford which I briefly described above has some large roundish boulders incorporated into the site as well.  I would say, when noticing alignments of boulders, and/or propped boulders, also look for any Standing Stones (usually in a collapsed state.)  Also when looking at Standing Stone sites, see if you can't find any boulders- placed, propped and/or "enhanced" incorporated into the site as well.  This is what I have noticed.  [Also note: many high ledges where bedrock is exposed does not yet have a significant soil build up in some areas].  

- Echo Lake by the Milford/ Hopkinton Line.  The last couple of times I have been back to that particular Stone Chamber in the woods

(the Echo Lake Stone Chamber I have written extensively about) I have noticed some more peculiar things about that site.  First of all, there is a gentle brook (dry most of the year in our time) that flows next to (below) the Chamber- but also the Chamber itself is not far from a large ravine that goes into a marsh (the source of the brook just mentioned.)  Above this ravine are the remains (ruins) of two distinct pyramidal stone mounds, both of immense size.  I could not tell if they were completely separate or linked, at least partially, and perhaps even maybe linked to the Stone Chamber as well (or at least the Special Boulder the Stone Chamber was built from.)  In the close distance from the Chamber are also several smaller, medium-sized stone mounds.  I also noticed on top of a boulder a very special triangular/ pyramidal shaped stone on it's side.  The thing about this stone is that it is an exact replica, or identical, to a pyramidal-shaped stone on top of another boulder maybe a mile or mile and a half away from it, although the stone by Echo Lake is scaled down from the other one.  The other pyramid stone looks like this:

Note that there is the support at the base of the pyramid stone.  This is identical to the other pyramid stone right near the Echo Lake Stone Chamber and the large pyramidal Stone Mounds.  I know that Mary and James Gage's research gets into the symbolism of stone shapes and that this pyramidal triangle, according to them, has a protective symbolism, or quality, to the shape.  I agree, but I also suggest that this shape, and the reason and reasons for this shape is much, much deeper and multi-faceted, although I will not get into that right now.  Also, there is a third immense pyramidal stone mound ruin which I have noticed by Echo Lake, but much farther away from the Stone Chamber complex.  [To elaborate: when standing at the foot of these large pyramidal stone mounds looking up, one gets the sense they are gazing at the ruins of true pyramid mounds- the two pyramid mounds by the Stone Chamber (and possibly connected to it) are about 25-30 ft. in height.  The third pyramid stone mound away from the main site is maybe 30-40 ft. in height.  To the untrained eye this may look like glacial till, but there is organization to the placement of the stones, as well as showcases of obvious workmanship such as "stone benches", triangular shaped standing stones, special placement of quartz, etc.]

- Back to the topic of Standing Stones.  Although there are many great Standing Stones, 6 ft. high, 10 ft. high, etc., I want to point something out.  The Ancient Ones made small hand-held replicas of these great megalithic Standing Stones using small quartz crystals.  I think that these smaller hand-held quartz stones in the shape of the larger Standing Stones (in other words, smaller replicas) were special stones to remind the bearer of the great strength (or awesomeness) of the larger stones.  So for instance, they had some of this special Manitou wherever they went and not just on-site.  I have identified several of these smaller stones to their larger counterparts purely by happen-stance (and because I pay attention to detail.)  The smaller hand-held will have a tip where the tip of the large Standing Stone is, a notch at the base of the bottom where the larger one will, the dimensions of the tip, body and base will be a perfect match, and so on.  What other function these hand-held stones had I cannot be certain- for instance as a key stone, or any other special significance they had.

- As Mavor and Dix point out on page 214 of their book Manitou, there have been Hopewell and Adena Culture phase (associated with mound building in the mid-west) bird stones found in New England.  I too, have observed bird stone artifacts from time to time.  However from what I have seen they seem to be a bit distinct from the Hopewell and Adena cultures; perhaps even proto-Hopewell and proto-Adena from what I have seen (in other words more ancient).  One motif that I have noticed is the dual bird and snake symbolism (note: some researchers link dual bird and snake symbolism to antediluvian cultural times.  The "plumed serpent" of the most ancient of civilizations comes to mind when looking at dual bird/serpent symbolism).  In other words, from one angle of such an effigy is a snake, the other angle it's a bird- yet the composite of both images makes up one single portrait, or effigy.  I wish I had a picture of one of these stones; but again I am currently without a camera.

- Came across another undocumented Stone Chamber in Milford MA. last spring.  My best guess is that this particular Chamber was built in the 18th or 19th centuries and served a dual purpose to whoever built it.  This Chamber is on the side of a hill but is in the middle of a spring.  An old cart path runs above it so it is like a bridge for the cart path- the flow of the spring has also been engineered by stone wall building along it's banks, contemporary with that of the Chamber.  So, the lintel stones acting as a bridge for the cart-path is the Stone Chamber's practical function.  However, the folks who built it (farm-hands it would seem) probably used it also for their own folk traditions, whether these people were Irish, Scottish, or Native or had Native ancestry I do not know.  I can picture someone 150 or 200 years ago chilling out inside this stone chamber relaxing their feet in the calm waters of the stream on the side of the hill.  There are also old rusted pale buckets near this Chamber, which have been linked to ceremonialism- gelling with 17th/, 18th/, 19th century Native ceremonialism ("flashy trinkets"- although the "sophisticated" white man's mind could not comprehend the deeper meaning of reflecting/ refracting sun and moonlight as well as sacred shapes and symbolism, etc.), but these pale buckets also gel with folk traditions of people from the Irish countryside, in fact the country-side probably anywhere on the British Isles as well, the key here is that we are looking at the folk tradition of the pale bucket.

-There are also really good Similacra's in the hills of Milford, MA.  Some are human, some are bird, some are serpent.  Some are on over-hangs of rock ledges, some are formed from boulders, and some are worked into boulders.  I have shared some in this blog already but there are much, much more to be seen.

- I had more news to bring forward but I will save it for another time.  One point I wanted to say is that studying the origins of human belief systems and the origins of who we are is a complex thing indeed.  There is no easy answer.  There is no such thing as a single adrogenous group of people.  Nothing is ever that simple.  For example, people say that the Neanderthals are all dead, that they all died off 12,000+ years ago.  But that is not true.  There are billions of modern people in the human population who have Neanderthal genes (ancestry), no matter how miniscule that may seem.  And, these human ancestors had a larger brain capacity than we do today, although it was "wired" a bit differently.  They also appeared to be stronger than modern people and more artistically expressive.  The stereo-type of a brutish dullard most people have of a Neanderthal isn't even accurate.  We inherited our artistic and emotional expressions from them; they even buried flowers with their dead.  There seems to be a white-washing or a smear campaign on our human history as more people are plugged in to their machines.  I do not know if any North American rock sites relate to "pre-modern" human cultures such as the Neanderthal (in fact nobody at this point could probably say for sure) but I bring up this last point to highlight just how complex the human species is, especially in understanding our origins.  Also this is partly prep for a video I wish to share in an upcoming post about the Carpathian Mountains (Romania), where there are many boulder/ simulacra rock sites in an area with a heavy concentration of Neanderthal burials- the video is very thought provoking and who knows maybe there is something to it- we will be exploring some other parts of the world in these videos before coming back home.

Stay tuned.
