The Georgia Guidestones:
On one of the highest hilltops in Elbert County, Georgia stands a giant granite monument. Engraved in eight different languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 Guides, or commandments. The monument is alternately referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge.
The origin of this strange monument is covered in mystery because no one knows the true identity of the man, or men, who commissioned its construction. All that is known for certain is that in June 1979, a well-dressed, articulate stranger visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He identified himself as R. C. Christian, but it soon became apparent that was not his real name. He said that he represented a group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, but to date, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented.
The messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four major fields:
(1) Governance and the establishment of a world government,
(2) Population and reproduction control,
(3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and
THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.
Certainly the group that commissioned the Georgia Guidestones is one of many similar groups working together toward a New World Order, a new world economic system, and a new world spirituality.
The hole that you see in the stone was drilled in the Center Stone so that the North Star could be visualized through it at any moment. This was one of several requirements stipulated by R.C.Christian for the building of the American Stonehenge and reflects his obsession with the alignment of the stars, the sun, and the moon.
The Grooved African Sphere
Over the past several decades, South African miners have found hundreds of metallic spheres, at least one of which has three parallel grooves running around its equator. The spheres are of two types--one of solid bluish metal with white flecks, and another which is a hollow ball filled with a white spongy center. Roelf Marx, curator of the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, where some of the spheres are housed, said: "The spheres are a complete mystery. They look man-made, yet at the time in Earth's history when they came to rest in this rock no intelligent life existed. They're nothing like I have ever seen before". In the absence of a satisfactory natural explanation, the evidence is somewhat mysterious, leaving open the possibility that the South African grooved sphere--found in a mineral deposit some 2.8 billion years old--was made by an intelligent being.
Here is another intriguing wonder to the world. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's triangle, is a triangular area of the Atlantic Ocean (305,000 km2) where the disappearances of ships, airplanes, and boats has led to the belief that "supernatural" forces inhabit this area of the sea. Many planes, ships, and boats are believed to have disappeared in this triangle without a trace. This includes the disappearance of over 1,000 seamen and airmen. In most of these disappearances, it is the fact that no distress signal was ever received from the disappearing ships or planes that enhances the cloud of mystery that surrounds them. Although violent storms and downward air currents frequently occur in the area, scientists have not revealed anything extremely peculiar. Boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle are formed by drawing an imaginary line from Melbourne, Florida, to Bermuda, to Puerto Rico, and back to Florida. Could there truly be an unnatural force at work in this geographical triangle or are these disappearances merely coincidence? Either way, numerous people remain unwilling to step over the boundary line into the Devil's Triangle.
Loch Ness Monster
The Loch Ness Monster is a legendary animal that supposedly resides in the depths of Loch Ness, a long narrow lake situated in rural Scotland. Stories concerning the monster date back to the 6th century A.D. The region was in complete isolation until a road was built alongside the lake in 1933. Then large numbers of people travelled through the region for the very first time. Over the years thousands have reported seeing something in the lake. Most reports depict a long neck surging from the water with a small head of a unknown creature. Pictures have even been taken of this "creature", but most scientists however, refuse to believe any creature of this kind lives in the Loch Ness. They claim that most reported cases are simply products of overactive imaginations, and as for the pictures, scientists say they are not lucid enough to distinguish items clearly, and some pictures are dubbed as "fake". A large number of non- scientists believe however, that the Loch Ness is the site of a breeding colony of large unknown aquatic animals, due to the fact that Loch Ness was once an arm of the sea. Yearly summer investigations have been conducted since 1963 in attempt to unravel the mystery. Investigators have obtained films that indicate that there just might be some unknown animal in the depths of the Loch Ness. Evidence however, is inconclusive, and the controversy continues.
Belmez Faces, the suspected and mystic phenomenon, in a private house of Spain, was started in 1971. Residents of the house claimed that images of various faces appeared and disappeared. These faces were noticed on the concrete floor of the house.
Various faces have emerged and also vanished at irregular intervals since 1971. Visitors and local newspapers have claimed that they have captured these many times. Opinion behind the facts and history of this particular phenomenon differ. People believe that these faces are not formed or made by Human beings rather this is a thought graphic phenomenon which is produced by the owner of the house unconsciously.
To witness the wonder many flock to the place.
Researchers have confirmed that unlike other psychic claims this case is falsifiable. These faces are fixed or drawn on the floor. However, the reports are not conclusive. Cynic researchers had performed extensive and broad tests on the images of the faces and it is demonstrated that fakery is involved in this mystical phenomenon.
Skulls were found near the antique ruins of Mayan and Aztec civilizations. It is opined that some of these skulls are 5,000 to 36,000 years old. The history and origin of these crystal skulls are unknown.
Many aboriginal populaces speak of their amazing paranormal and healing properties, but no one actually knows where they came from or the use of the skulls.
Today, quartz is the key component of many of the modern equipments. Telecommunication devices and computers use quartz. No information could be stored or retrieved without quartz. One small chip has the capacity to store thousands of important information.
Ancient men were not aware of computers. However, it is believed that they knew the importance of storing and retrieving information. They used to use receptacle which could record, store and even transmit data. The rediscovered crystal skulls were their computers.
Receptacle shaped human heads were used to store piece of information. It would be used in many rituals and can easily be passed from generation to generation. As we protect information securely in our brains, in the same way these crystal skulls were used to protect the piece of information. Skulls were the containers which were used to hold information.
Easter Island, the volcanic origin, is one of the fascinating but least visited archeological sites. The treeless island, located in the Pacific Ocean, is a small, hilly and remotest Island of the world. The awe inspiring and stunning Island, covering 63 square miles of land, houses three extinct volcanoes in its territory. The tallest of all has a height of 1674 feet. The oldest and traditional name of this interesting site is "Te Pito o Te Henua". The meaning of the name is the centre of the world.
"Rapa Nui, another name of Easter Island, was given by Tahitan sailor long back in 1860s. The Island resemblance to another Island in Polynesia called Rapa Iti. According to that the name "Rapa Nui" was given. Jacob Roggeveen, the Dutch sea captain, visited the Island on Easter Sunday, on 5th April, 1722 as the first European. The well known name, Easter Island, has come from the Dutch sea captain.
Previously the Island was full of compelling greeneries. It was the homeland of heaving birds and was the affluent breeding site of sea birds in Polynesia. Within few centuries all these trees were cut down and astonishing wildlife was destroyed. Now, it is a treeless paradise which has lost its old glory for the recklessness of the human beings.
Flower of Life
Evenly placed and multiple overlapping circles have created fascination over the years. The geometric representation of this astonishing and mysterious figure is also known as the flower of life. The center of each circle falls on the circumference of the six adjoining and encircling circles of the same diameter. Some opine that it depicts fundamental form of space and time. It also has a definite ancient and spiritual value. A number of sanctified beliefs are linked with the Flower of Life; Illustrations of the five Platonic Solids are originated inside the symbol of Metatron's Cube, most probably which are derived from the Flower of Life pattern. These platonic solids are geometrical depictions and also act as template from which all life springs.
The flower of life has a secret symbol which was created by drawing 13 circles. Because of this, the most significant and hallowed outline in the universe can be discovered. This striking picture is also called the Fruit of Life. 13 informational systems are there. An aspect of reality is depicted and explained by each one of these. Thus these systems offer an access to everything starting from the human body to the galaxies.
Let us take an example of flower of life at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt. The imperative attraction is a three dimensional figure. Calm down and sit three feet away from the flower of life. Let the flower gradually draw your eyes out of focus. The flower will open eventually. Don’t ever focus on any one point or blankly gaze at the flower of life. It is quite possible to get a headache and prickly eyes. However, this will hurriedly fade away. We do not see with our eyes rather we see through our eyes. Be quiet and try to focus. A terrifying and ferocious creature will appear in front of your eyes. It’s not at all harmful. Move on to the next entity after you are quite familiar with the reptilian. Repeat the steps after rotating the figure 30 degrees if you are interested and eager to interact with another form.
Nazca lines, located in the Nazca desert of South Peru, covering a sprawling area of 80 km between the towns Nazca and Palpas de Jumana, are a series of primeval geoglyphs. Nazca lines are in the list of the UNESCO world heritage sites since 1994. Scholars believe that these lines depict the artistic and cultural excellences of Nazca and were created between 400 and 650 AD. Innumerable complex figures really fascinate everyone. Starting from Simple lines to stylish figures, everything is there. Figures like Hummingbirds, Spiders, Monkeys, Fishes, Sharks, Orcas, Llamas and Lizards are prominently visible in the territory of Nazca lines.
The pretty but thinly designed figures are formed by removing reddish pebbles. The removal of these pebbles reveals the existence of whitish ground underneath. Hundreds of figures are simple lines where as more than 70 zoomorphic designs portray birds, fish, llamas, jaguar, monkey and even human figures. Shapes of trees and flowers are also not uncommon. The largest figures, spread across 660 feet, are the epitomes of marvelous arts. Even though the exact purposes of these creations are unidentified but religious significance of these figures are prominent. The geometric figures could indicate the flow of water. Due to the dryness and stability of climate most of the artistic designs are preserved. But the weather conditions may provisionally alter the general designs.
