Strap yourselves in lads this is going to be a long one ... I tired to keep it relatively short to hold the attention span but there is so much information and evidence out there that keeping it short is no small task. I will provide pics for your visual pleasure but ill try and limit it to 1 to 2 pics per area just for efficiencies sake, if you would like more pics just google any of the areas i will show and im sure there will be plenty.

Now this is a subject that has baffled me my whole life, megalithic stones just everywhere in the ancient world across all cultures from one end of the globe to the other. One of the most remarkable prehistoric human achievements was our ability to work with stone on a seemingly gigantic and effortless scale, which apart from the technical implications, reveals the presence of sophisticated and complex people, who proved themselves to be anything but primitive.

There are many theories on how these stones were moved cut and transported i am not here to advocate one over the other because the fact is like many things in the ancient world we weren't there and can only offer theories on what we think may or may not have happened, my job here is to bring this to the attention of people who are interested and want to know more or people who have no knowledge that this even exists.

Ok lets start with the more famous ones and work our way into some that you may or may not have heard of before.

EGYPT /AFRICA
Well obviously we have the pyramids but im assuming you have all seen them, so here are some more that you may or may not have seen.

Aswan

Measures 120-feet (42m) and would have weighed over 1,168 tons when complete.

Colossal statue of Ramses

Thebes Egypt Colossal statue of Ramses 1,000 tons was transported 170 miles (270 km) by ship (apparently) from Aswan to Thebes

The Colossi of Memnon
http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/8085/800pxcolossiofmemnon.jpg (http://img294.imageshack.us/i/800pxcolossiofmemnon.jpg/)
Including the stone platforms on which they stand (about 4 metres (13 ft) themselves), the colossi reach a towering 18 metres (approx. 60 ft) in height and weigh an estimated 700 tons each.


Inside The 'Great' pyramid of Khufu

http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/9522/gpiv10nos.jpg (http://img697.imageshack.us/i/gpiv10nos.jpg/)
The 'Kings chamber' in the Great pyramid is covered over with several granite stones estimated at 50-70 tons each. The Gable stones over the entrance and several of the stones covering the descending passage are also several cubic meters in size.

The Valley Temple and The Osireion

http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/9881/osireonwayin.jpg (http://img714.imageshack.us/i/osireonwayin.jpg/)
Made of 'rose-coloured Aswan granite', the ten central columns each measure 2.096m˛ (5) and 4.19˛m high (5) most weigh between 49.68 tons and 59 tons.

... many many many more in Egypt alone but ill need to move on or the Egypt part alone will take up to much.

Ethiopia - The Stellae of Axum
The Obelisk of Axum (today, especially in Axum, also called the Rome Stele) is a 1,700-year-old, 24-meters (78-foot) tall granite stele/obelisk, weighing 160 tonnes. It is decorated with two false doors at the base, and decorations resembling windows on all sides. The "obelisk" ends in a semicircular top part, which used to be enclosed by metal frames.

They are about 6 meters tall. The estimated volume of stone is over 6,000 cubic meters. Estimates for the weight of the largest limestone block vary from 128 tonnes to almost 200 tonnes.

Tiahuanaco, Bolivia (for those who know what Pumapunku is don't worry im dropping that bad boy at the end)
Tiahuanaco sits in the Bolivian Andes at a height of over 12,500 ft.Inca tradition spoke of the founding Inca male and female coming to Cuzco from the 'Island of the Sun' on Lake Titicaca, nearby. When the Spanish first encountered Tiahuanaco in the sixteenth century, they went to great efforts to destroy it. Early in the 20th century, Bolivian railway workers broke up many of the blocks as ballast for the railway beds. The remains of the site are now finally being restored.

EASTER ISLAND (moai)
Easter Island is situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and was one of the primary islands of the Polynesian Island group. Hundreds of stone statues or 'Maoi' lie scattered around the island, and encircle it on long raised platforms. The island poses several questions in regards pre-Columbian contact with the Americas.

FRANCE
This group of dolmens is congregated between Samur to Blois, on the river Loire are some of the most impressive in France. They are puzzling to archaeologists as none of them appear to have ever been covered with earth, and there have been no human remains found in them, which precludes them from having been intended for passage mounds or funerary structures.

Kerloas Menhir
Although Paturi, claimed this to be the largest standing stone in France. And although once correct, that claim is now technically no longer so as, following the loss of the top 1.5m, it now stands at the same height as the Dol-de Bretagne, but with a smaller girth. It is said that a lightning strike took the top off this menhir.
http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/6656/kerloasmenhir.jpg (http://img689.imageshack.us/i/kerloasmenhir.jpg/)
Highest estimated weight 150 tons. Height 9.5m.

Dol-de Bretagne
The Dol-de-Breton stands on the borders of Normandy and Brittany. The nearby 'Mont Dol' is the place where St. Michael is said to have fought Lucifer. The Dol de Breton is a part of a solar alignment running between Mont St. Michel, (which is clearly visible from the top), and D' Avranches. The three sites align so that the rising sun on the 8th of May (which is the spring festival of St. Michael), rises over D' Avranches, follows the axis of the Abbey on Mont St. Michel, then passes over Mont Dol and finally the Dol de Breton.

The Cove, Avebury, England
Avebury is the largest stone circle in the world: it is 427m (1401ft) in diameter and covers an area of about 28 acres (11.5 ha). The site is formed by a huge circular bank (roughly a mile around), a massive ditch, now only a half its original depth, and a great ring of 98 sarsen slabs enclosing two smaller circles of 30 stones each and other settings and arrangements of stones.

Callanish Stones
The 13 primary stones form a circle about 13 m in diameter, with a long approach avenue of stones to the north, and shorter stone rows to the east, south, and west (possibly incomplete avenues). The overall layout of the monument recalls a distorted Celtic cross. The individual stones vary from around 1 m to 5 m in height, with an average of 4 m, and are of the local Lewisian gneiss.

Cyclopean Walls
The renowned cyclopean walls of Tiryns and Mycenae are attributed to the Mycenaeans, also called the Achaeans or Pelasgians, and are generally assigned to the 14th and 13th centuries BCE. Greek tradition asserts that they were built by the Cyclopes, mythical one-eyed giants.

Tholoi: Omphalos-shaped chambers
Nine significant Tholoi have been discovered in ancient Mycenae, with the so-called 'Treasury of Atreus' being the most impressive. Tholoi are characterised by their internal domed chamber, normally referred to as 'Beehive-shaped'. No cement was used with the masonry. The blocks were cut to fit together perfectly, with the largest (the lintel), weighing around 120 tons.

The Lamassu of Nimrud, Iraq
In 1847, after discovering more than half a dozen winged pair of colossal statues of lions and bulls also known as lamassu weighing up to 30 short tons (27 t) Henry Layard brought two of the colossi weighing 10 short tons (9.1 t) each including one lion and one bull to London.

The Ziggurat of Ur
The Great Ziggurat of Ur was a temple of Nanna, the moon deity in Sumerian mythology, and has two stages constructed from brick: in the lower stage the bricks are joined together with bitumen, in the upper stage they are joined with mortar. The temple was built in 2,100 B.C. during the reign of Ur-Nammu and stands 70 feet (21 m) high.

Gobekli Tepe, Turkey
This is the site of the worlds currently known oldest shrine or temple complex in the world, and the planet's oldest known example of monumental architecture. It has also produced the oldest known life-size figure of a human.
Compared to Stonehenge, Carnac or the Pyramids of Egypt, these are relatively humble megaliths. None of the circles excavated (four out of an estimated 20) are more than 30 meters across. What makes the discovery remarkable are both the exquisite and intricate carvings of boars, foxes, lions, birds, snakes and scorpions.
At Gobekli Tepe, 15 km northeast of the city of Sanliurfa, stand four megalithic limestone pillars, 7 m tall and weighing around 50 tons each.

Ba'albek, Lebanon. - (The 'Stone of the South)
The temple at Ba'albek is famous for its extraordinarily large foundation stones (The largest in the world). These stones also qualify as the largest cut-stones in the history of mankind. the approximate weight of this stone is 1158.696 tons. Three other smaller stones under 'The Grand Terrace' of the temple itself are also estimated to weigh from between 750 and 1,000 tons each, and there are several other colossal stones to be seen around the great 'Temple of the Sun' at Ba'albek.

The Plain of Jars, Laos
More than 90 sites are known within the province of Xieng Khouang. Each site ranges from 1 up to 400 stone jars. The jars vary in height and diameter between 1 and 3 metres and are all without exception hewn out of rock. From the fact that most of the jars have lip rims, it is presumed that all stone jars supported lids, although few stone lids have been recorded; this may suggest that the bulk of lids have been fashioned from perishable materials. Stone lids with animal representations have been noticed at few sites such as Ban Phakeo (Site 52). The bas-relief animals are thought to be monkeys, tigers and frogs. No in situ lid has ever been found.

Khajuraho Group of Monuments, India
The whole area was enclosed by a wall with eight gates, each flanked by two golden palm trees. There were originally over 80 Hindu temples, of which only 25 now stand in a reasonable state of preservation, scattered over an area of about 20 square kilometres (8 sq mi). Today, the temples serve as fine examples of Indian architectural styles that have gained popularity due to their explicit depiction of sexual life during medieval times. Locals living in the Khajuraho village always knew about and kept up the temples as best as they could. They were pointed out to an Englishman in late 19th century but the jungles had taken a toll on all the monuments.

Konark Sun Temple, India
he temple takes the form of the chariot of Surya (Arka), the sun god, and is heavily decorated with stone carving. The entire complex was designed in the form of a huge chariot drawn by seven spirited horses on twelve pairs of exquisitely decorated wheels. The entrance is guarded by two giant lions, which are each shown crushing a war elephant. Each elephant in turn lies on top of a human body. The temple symbolizes the majestic stride of the Sun god. At the entrance of the temple is a Nata Mandir. This is where the temple dancers used to perform dances in homage to the Sun god. All around the temple, there are various floral and geometric patterns.The temple is now partly in ruins.

and the last one and one of my personal Favorites

PUMAPUNKU

The structure known as the Puma Punka is still littered with giant, precisely shaped blocks, many of which weighing appear machine made. The so-called 'port' of Tiahuanaco, called Puma Punku or "Door of the Puma," which is often quoted to have once been a wharf with a massive four-part building, is an area filled with enormous stone blocks scattered around the ground like matchsticks, with several estimated to weigh between 100 and 150 tons.
A story was told by the local Aymara indians to a Spanish traveller who visited Tiahuanaco shortly after the conquest spoke of the city's original foundation in the age of Chamac Pacha, or First Creation, long before the coming of the Incas. Its earliest inhabitants, they said, possessed supernatural powers, for which they were able miraculously to lift stones of off the ground, which "...were carried [from the mountain quarries] through the air to the sound of a trumpet'.

A close inspection of the stone above reveals that there are regularly spaced drill marks in the precision-cut 6mm groove.

I cannot really do this site justice with just pics here is a clip from Ancient Aliens showing Pumapunku.

CONCLUSIONS

One again like my spirals post everyone is going to have their own opinion as to what all this represents. Now keep in mind that a lot of these stone structures are granite and basalt .. and some even granite and diorite (you basically have to cut this stuff with diamond tipped tools). I still am feeling that there may have been a global society (my own opinion of course) because the similarities through out the world are just way to coincidental, multiple places all over earth doing exactly the same things especially with the dolmens (which i have heard people used to meditate in).

Stones have their own resonance and maybe there was a reason that they used to build everything out of stone, no matter how seemingly impossible it may seem that they had to move megalithic stones we would have trouble lifting today with modern technology, they did it, so there must have been a really important reason to do so, whatever that reason is ill leave for you to decide there is many many theories out there including the stones resonance properties and the possible amplification of your consciousness when meditating encased in stone.

Over all this has been mind boggling research, every time I found out something new it took me down a massively long path of information, i literally had to cut myself short because it was running extremely long. i didn't give full information on everything here because i will be posting another thread on ancient observatories which this research seem to be intricately wound with.

So you guys can make your own minds up on the subject, im not here to tell you what to believe. have fun and be nice with the incoming flames of Camelot wrath lol.

ps. i would also like to recommend the new ancient aliens series on the history channel to everyone, especially the Evidence portion of the series which does talk about this subject.


Thanks everyone on Avalon Forums for your time, I hope you enjoy reading as much as i enjoyed putting this together for you guys.

You know when will we learn what all of this was about?When we are fully awaken again 100 per cent,before that all that we will do is theorize and keep boggling our minds to the whole thing,i think it did this i think it was for this and so on.These are my favorite things but i recognize we are not capable of understanding these things in our current state nor are the scholars imo.NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE PERIOD.Perhaps the ancient built all these wonderful sites to make us THINK about something bigger besides their original purpose of course.To make us look inside ourselves and try to find the answers for such magnificent works that blow people's mind to these day.With all our tech we arent capable to recreating ANY of this at all even today,and that goes to show us that we dont know CRAP.We just think we do we just think we are important in the great scheme of things hehe.

You know, theres always been, in every single culture you go to, stories, well, we call them "myths" now, of Giants that walked the earth in times gone past. Thats one possibility, another is telekenisis. But slave labour? That just doesnt fly! Even slaves are not that creative, strong and, ohh superhuman.

Thank you for taking the time to post all of these photos! I'm a bit of an armchair historian, especially with respect to ancient architecture, so you're all going to have to listen to my opinion :p

I'm also under the impression that a civilization, with global reaches, existed deep into antiquity. Now, I'm unsure how far into the past this all extends; but it seems that around 9,000-15,000 BC, there was some kind of a natural disaster, or catastrophe. This event destroyed a good deal of the remnants, submerging most of the cities deep beneath the ocean. I believe that this civilization, or possibly civilizations, achieved a higher level of technological advancement than we currently have; and were likely a more spiritual people.

Graham Hancock has much to say on the subject. I also enjoy Manly P. Hall's astute research on the antiquity and the mystery schools featured in his book "Secret Teachings of All Ages (http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/sta/)."

Why use stone?
Because it is ecologically friendly and each rock type has a specific quality in regards to manipulating the Earths subtle energies, also because stone is chemically stable compared to modern high tech materials.

Hi Loki,
I remember in the early 1980's watching a TV show called "great mysteries of the world" I think it was hosted by Leonard Nimoy, one episode that always stuck out in my mind was about this eastern european guy whom settled in Florida, USA, he started to build this castle as a tribute to his greatest love, some lady, anyway it was made of stone that he cut at a locally quary and had those stones transported to the site where he was building this castle.
Anyway to get to me point, he would order a local truck driver to come by with his flat bed truck to make the delivery. The driver would park it near the several ton cut stone to be loaded onto the back of the truck, he would then ask the driver to move out of site, and then after coming back after a few minutes a several ton stone that had been laying next to the truck was on the trucks flat bed. With no evidence of machinary having loaded the block onto the truck. The same would happen when unloading the truck.
In regards to these ancient sites you mention and with this example in mind, maybe some of these ancient civilsations utilized the power of the mind to carve and transport these huge stone blocks.

(The guys was a short, gentle and unassuming character, and I think it happened sometime between the 1920 -1960. I watched that show so long ago my recollection is probable riddled with holes. Hopefully my description will jog someone else memory and they will remembers more about this episode.)

Join Researcher David Hatcher Childress and British Engineer Christopher Dunn as they journey to Cuzco in the Andes Mountains to examine evidence for the possible use of advanced rock-machining techniques. Going to ancient cities and megalithic quarries, they again examine saw marks, advanced lifting and moving techniques, as well as evidence of Pre-Incan megalith builders at Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo. They continue on to Lake Titicaca where they investigate the strange megalithic towers and a "stargate" cut into solid rock. Finally they examine the huge granite megaliths at Tiwanaku and Puma Punku for signs of the use of power tools and other advanced, ancient technology. Blows the lid off South American archeology with evidence of advanced ancient technology thousands of years old.

On the subject of how these massive stones were moved it has been suggested that Edward Leedskalnin the creator of The Coral Castle learned how the Egyptians
moved massive stones by levitating the stones!

If you havent heard of him then please check out this amazing link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hr9U1cP68eU

Just to make this even more interesting, a tv documentary featuring Joanna Lumley called "The Nile" was on tv last week.
Whilst she was crusing the Nile with her guide captain Abdul Aziz (whom had been crusing this river for nearly 60 years,) she asked if he thought the ancient egyptians transported the massive stones by boat.

His reply was that he believed the Egyptians had levitated the stones onto boats
and waved their magic wands to do so!

Im not sure whilst looking looking at Joannas expression whether she thought it the ramblings of an old fool or not! I for one believed him.

I believe there is much ancient knowledge handed down through word of mouth that may seem too fantastic to be true....but having recently looked at what John Hutchison can do levitating 70lb steel cannon balls effortlessly, I think it may be a very real possibility that defying gravity may be a well guarded secret!

I would love to hear my fellow Avalonian thought on this subject!

It is helpful to consider the conditions in which these structures were created; the climate between 10,000 and 7000 BC was mostly an ice age, and from then to 5000 BC was off and on very cold. Perhaps we could draw from an example in our own history, where General Knox dragged great cannons over 1000 zig-zag miles to Boston, to drive out the British. This would not have been possible without the ice and snow-pack of winter. It is reasonable to consider that moving the great stones of the megaliths would have been done in the same conditions, which were there most of the year.

Billy Meier talked at length about the massive stone monuments from antiquity, especially those along the ley lines of Europe and Egypt.
He said they were placed there by the "gods" if you will, ancient aliens who sought to keep their grip on mankind tight and secure.
The monuments and edifaces were intended to "block" the natural flow of energy on the planet, helping to "stunt" the spiritual and intellectual growth of mankind.
The were placed to keep mankind spiritually impaired, and easier to control.

Castaneda talks at length about the ancient pyramids and stone structures of Mexico, and advises against folks from lingering around them or engaging them too closely.
Castaneda says they were built by men who understood sorcery and magic in ways we can not really understand.
He says that these folks were concerned more with spiritual power, and gaining it through whatever means necessary, regardless of who they had to manipulate or harm to get it.
He even states that some of those old sorcerors who focused their intent and energy on these things are still there in some form or another, as wreaths if you will, still capable of inflicting harm and stealing energy.

I take these two accounts into serious consideration, I personally keep on objective eye when taking in data about the ancient monuments, and I'm not quick to assign beneficial associations with
them.

On a side note, when I first wrote serious consideration, I miss spelled it by writing Sirius consideration. Funny being how much Sirius was involved in the Pyramids of Giza and how so much has bee written about the Sirians probably contributing quite a bit to the "god" mess engaged by not a few extraterrestrial visitors. Just my opinion.

Historian cryptographer Duncan-Enzmann's translations of inscriptions from 12,500 BC tell us that menhirs were used to measure the movement of stars and planets. A level horizon was chosen, or created with stone or water, and menhirs were placed (much math went into these calculations) so that observations of the movement of stars could be recorded. Like using a telescope, one eye is closed, the other observing, and the star is timed from when it is at the tip of one menhir to the next. Some menhirs were miles apart. Ashera poles and pillars were also used for the same purpose. Where the observer stood was also calculated carefully. Our ancestors were skilled at the math it took to master astronomy. It was an ice age, stone was abundant, and perhaps the ever present icepack made transporting the huge stones possible. (ref: Symbology:Decoding Classic Images)

I'm of the opinion through my research that stones have 'properties' esp granite. Granite is the stone also used in the kings Chamber. Also granite can stand the test of time for 1,000s of years. The mystery is how did they move these huge 10+ ton stones, esp the granite stones in the Kings Chamber to where they needed to be placed, how did they cut them ect. Ive heard many theories as that of sound frequencies..to move the stones ect..but how did they cut them? Ive heard of high speed drills..esp on the coffin in the Kings Chamber. This is one topic I find fascinating, I dont think anyone has 'nailed' it yet on how it was all done.

I use to believe in Meier, 'bought his books, videos etc' but after serious study i found most of what he says to be more less 'taken' from other sources, he uses a lot of Edgar Cayce's material , and then makes up his own story from it. Meier is a fraud and should NOT be taken serious by anyone who is wanting real facts about ancient culture and UFOs.
Now Edgar Cayce I feel was a prophet , and was genuine. And much of what he says about Atlantis and early civilization does fit my research on past cultures, past geology etc..

I respect that BL, and by all means, you should go with what your gut tells you.
But I disagree with Meier being a fraud. It took me years of research before I was willing to step off the fence and put my foot squarelly in the circle of trust as far as Meier is concerned.
But in the circle of trust I am.

Meier is not some genius. He didn't even devolop the photos he took. No darkroom, he took all of his film to the local photomat, dropped them off, and came back when they were processed. The problem with this, is it didn't take long before TPTB discovered this was his method of devolopment and began intercepting his pictures before they came back to him.
Along with removing various pictures that he never saw again, it is his opinion that they inserted false photos that would be easy to disprove in order to discredit him.

Meier displays far too much genius in the communications with these ETs for me to believe that he is making all of this stuff up.

Hi DNA, your a smart man and can do your own research on the Billy Meier case. I've done mine. I bought 4 of his books and 1 video..about 100 bucks spent on it..i just more less now chalk it up as buying a fictional book, if anything it was entertaining to read. BUT not to be taken in anyway seriously! he did at that time have me fooled until many things about his predictions, photos, and his life made me questions him. Well long story short..he is the biggest conman and hoax in the UFO community.
I do not believe his 'claims' of men in black taking his photos etc..thats hogwash!
The guy has no photos of the aliens themselves..yet has encountered them 1,000s of times 'so he claims' and yet not 1 photo of them..well he did have 1 he claimed for 17 years as authentic ..until it was found out they were Dean martin girls then he changed his story and said the men in black put those photo in there..AFTER 17 year of him standing by them???
He has ZERO photos inside the craft..ZERO! yet hes been inside 100s of times..oh he claims his camera wont work inside..so convieniet.
Also why not one picture of the aliens coming out of the ship?
Here are a few question to ask>
Why no photos of the aliens?
Why no photos of their other technologies? ie inside the craft, various gadgets etc?
He claims to have went in our solar system on a flight..Why no photos of Jupiter.Mars etc up close?
I have tons of questions for this con man! Tons more..thats only a few
BTW many claims that he has had sexual endeavors with many of his followers. the man also has a dark past..likely killed people..And yet these benevolent beings come to this sinister man out of 6 billion people.
he also claims to be the reincarnation of Jesus and other Prophets read it from teh horse mouth here at Mike Horns website.

Welcome BestLion....

In order to understand how they were able to move the stone blocks first we need to understand why they were doing this.


The megalithic sites and stones were build to mark the Ley Lines. Stone circles were build to mark where Ley Lines cross or pass each other.


Ley Lines are faults or fissures in the earth’s core which we think were formed when the earth was created. Water permeated into these faults and through earths natural magnetism we are able to dowse these lines and follow them. You can do this at home with dowsing rods, good local knowledge and strong legs!


The sun heats the earth and in so doing the sun’s energy passes through the Magnetosphere.


From the Magnetosphere earths natural energy enters the di pole north and south pole axis at the highest latitude 90N and 90S.


For those of you who have a faith the good lord gave us everything we need when he created the earth including minerals and elements. Modern day scientists and academics record these elements and minerals on the periodic chart. The earth has an abundance of Iron, copper and a multitude of other minerals.


Those of you who know how to fix the car, or remember from school days, if you take a soft iron bar and with copper windings around the bar and then spin the bar within a magnetic field we get electricity. We call this AC Electricity or Alternating Current. The Americans then call this an “Alternator” while we Brits prefer to call it a “generator” the gen or Jeni! Both are the same of course.


With the planets natural magnetism from the sun via the magnetosphere entering at the north and south pole and the rotation of the earth at 900nm/hr (21600/24hrs=900kts) the rotation of the earth is no different from what is under the bonnet or hood of your car ie the Alternator.


Therefore in the natural world magnetism from the magnetosphere, iron and copper contained in the earths core plus the rotation of the planet produces electricity , or earths natural energy would be a better way of describing it.


In our modern world this was discovered by a Scotsman Charles Clarke Maxwell.


Following his death Maxwell’s discovery was further developed by people like Tesla and Edison.


However we have to ask the question, was it really Charles Clarke Maxwell who discovered magnetism. We know that the ancients in and around the bronze age were aware of earths natural energy (which included magnetism) and they marked these energy lines with standing stones and standing stone circles.


It’s thought that as well as marking the energy lines the stones also transmitting the natural energy to atmosphere. They did this because they knew that this would protect them from illness and disease and also to protect them from spirits.



12182

Standing Stone transmitting natural energy to atmosphere.


The building of pyramids around the world, together sacred and ancient sites was part of this process. The structures were therefore build above the energy line or Ley Line as we call it today. Earths natural energy is then transmitted from the Pyramid to atmosphere by what we call today the Caduceus coil.


12180

Pyramid built over the energy line or Ley Line transmitting natural energy to atmosphere.

According to the authors of Pyramid Energy: The Philosophy of God, the Science of Man (Delta-K, 1987), the "Caduceus Coil" was used to levitate the stone blocks that were used to build the pyramids and the other sites. Easter Island for example.


12178

Caduceus Coil


Pathways were built, flanked by rows of sphinxes, along which a solitron field spiraled, powered by coil generators. Priests used tuned coils (misidentified by Egyptologists as djed pillars), one passive (on the left, above) and one active (on the right, above). The active coil was grounded to a "Sacred Spot" and tapped into the planetary energy grid (ie the Ley Line).



12179

Coil Generators


The reason present-day scientists cannot duplicate this simple feat is because they have not studied the power source called the “world energy grid." (Or perhaps it’s been kept secret)

We think this is what Charles Clarke Maxwell discovered along with magnetism and was later developed by Tesla.

Essentially what the above text is saying is that if you reverse the two south poles of a magnet together they repel each other don’t they and that this force was used to lift the pyramid blocks. ( ie the magnetism did the lifting work in much the same was as a Maglev Train (Magnetic Levitation) lifts the actual weight of the train above the track)

Priests used tuned coils (misidentified by Egyptologists as djed pillars), one passive (on the left, above) and one active (on the right, above). The active coil was grounded to a "Sacred Spot" and tapped into the planetary energy grid (ie the Ley Line).

Coil Generators


The reason present-day scientists cannot duplicate this simple feat is because they have not studied the power source called the “world energy grid." (Or perhaps it’s been kept secret)

We think this is what Charles Clarke Maxwell discovered along with magnetism and was later developed by Tesla.

Essentially what the above text is saying is that if you reverse the two south poles of a magnet together they repel each other don’t they and that this force was used to lift the pyramid blocks. ( ie the magnetism did the lifting work in much the same was as a Maglev Train (Magnetic Levitation) lifts the actual weight of the train above the track)

G'day Fred,

Terrific information there pal! would I be correct in assuming that your not the author of that literature? I would love a link if that's the case!

Cheers.

Ancient Trenches, megalithic battlegrounds

Their locations and orientations, I propose, have more to do with defense lines against an enemy who wielded bows and projectile weaponry. The stones themselves resemble lines of soldiers, standing abreast and in rows. Often the broadest plateau of the stones were oriented to provide the largest surface area of coverage from incoming weapons. Archers could still shoot out between and duck to safety. Angles in dolmens could also then be explained as fox holes in the face of an arched enemy whose weapon would be launched on an arched trajectory. Covered in earth and grass they would have provided camouflaged areas to lay in ambush . Return fire could be shot out from behind metholithic lines which make for formidable shields. Semi-circle configurations provide a cone shaped field of defense against invaders. They were often placed along ridges and slopes of shorelines. Notches and holes might also have been used as sites for aiming and protection simultaneously. In essence they were fox holes and trenches.

Certainly ancient megaliths around the world were used for a myriad of purposes; shelters, calendars, ritual centers, and burial grounds. Perhaps some of the dead had been slain in battle, a fitting resting place for ancient infantry and warriors. It must have seemed that way also to the descendants who sometimes used these sacred stone areas to bury their dead, though they had long forgotten who built them or why they were there. Magical giants might seem a reasonable explanation to the distant children of the builders . Climatic calamities could have pushed increasing hoards of displaced peoples into ancient arable lands. They may have been refugees or aggressors on boats with powerful bows and deadly projectiles. This may have necessitated an expensive military defense response. Refugees of wars in distant places, wars to procure and protect decreasing resources. Cultures with bows have been depicted for ages throughout the world. Further more, if they were designed for ceremony might they not have been a bit more aesthetically pleasing?

Thank you, Loki, for taking so much time to present such a fascinating post. Seeing all these examples of unexplained technical brilliance in one place is really quite confronting. How little we really know about early human history on this planet. Building on a grand scale did not start with the Egyptians, and the further back in time we go more the more intriguing the mystery becomes. I am looking forward to reading the further posts you are hinting about!

Ancient Trenches, megalithic battle grounds

I believe the stones had a utilitarian function. Their locations and orientations, I propose, have more to do with defense lines against an enemy who wielded bows and projectile weaponry. Not unlike today the cost of war must have consumed a large portion of the economy. The stones themselves resemble lines of soldiers, standing abreast and in rows. Often the broadest plateau of the stones were oriented to provide the largest surface area of coverage from incoming weapons. Archers could still shoot out between and duck to safety. Angles in dolmens could also then be explained as fox holes in the face of an arched enemy whose weapon would be launched on an arched trajectory.

You have two opposing magnetic poles put together. It creates colliding magnetic fields around them. Then the real magic happens. The weight of the objects within the magnetic field decreases. This is a well-known phenomenon.

Assuming they were interplanetary travelers, they had to have gravity manipulation and free energy technology. It's a joke we need to have a rocket that burns fuels for space exploration. Energy is everywhere in space. When you can manipulate gravity with unlimited access to energy, size becomes irrelevant. In addition, they knew using stones are way more cost effective and energy saving than metals.

They could've had mechanical blade or laser. Laser blade theoretically cut any material. Honestly if I have antigravity device and laser beam, I'll build a house made out of 100% stones like they did. Skeptics often say "Why there weren't any left over tools around ancient sites?" This question is so absurd.
Have we seen building companies leave tools and machines after finishing building? Once they finish construction, they retrieves all their tools, left-over materials.

David Icke's perspective on megalithic structures is expansively interesting.

"This may upset some people who research in the earth energy and megalithic arena, but i strongly suggest that at least most of the great stone circles, stone forests, such as the more than 3000 standing stones at Carnac in Brittany, France, and other megalithic structures were actually put their there to block and dilute the power of the energy passing through the ley line and vortex network...The reason for these megalithic structures was two fold: to access the energy for their own ritual and other purposes, but to suppress the power and vibration of the energy pumping around the planet to maintain both the Earth and humanity in the low vibrational state" p416 (Human Race get off your knees).

I think these large objects were built, created by giants. This would make far more sense. Don't forget, these giants are hybrids. Half gods and humans. meaning they would far more advanced then us humans..
anyone agree?

exactly, a race of giants 50 to 100 feet tall, could lift these stones like they were a brick to a brickmason. they built with stone, we build with wood. hmmm ??

smart enough to build these structures, smart enough to take their tools and go elsewhere ( other planets) and build more. I agree.... oh cant build , I left my saw on earth.. not happening.

Hi Loki,
I remember in the early 1980's watching a TV show called "great mysteries of the world" I think it was hosted by Leonard Nimoy, one episode that always stuck out in my mind was about this eastern european guy whom settled in Florida, USA, he started to build this castle as a tribute to his greatest love, some lady, anyway it was made of stone that he cut at a locally quary and had those stones transported to the site where he was building this castle.
Anyway to get to me point, he would order a local truck driver to come by with his flat bed truck to make the delivery. The driver would park it near the several ton cut stone to be loaded onto the back of the truck, he would then ask the driver to move out of site, and then after coming back after a few minutes a several ton stone that had been laying next to the truck was on the trucks flat bed. With no evidence of machinary having loaded the block onto the truck. The same would happen when unloading the truck.
In regards to these ancient sites you mention and with this example in mind, maybe some of these ancient civilsations utilized the power of the mind to carve and transport these huge stone blocks.

(The guys was a short, gentle and unassuming character, and I think it happened sometime between the 1920 -1960. I watched that show so long ago my recollection is probable riddled with holes. Hopefully my description will jog someone else memory and they will remembers more about this episode.)

I've really enjoyed this thread, so thank you Loki!

I'm very interested in all of this stuff. I disagree with Drusin though, on whether stones found in lines represent defensive positions. Not unless they were defending themselves from mortor attack or an artillery barrage! I imagine that when these stones were placed there the forest would have provided a better defence, but enough of that.

I suspect that at least some of these massive stones were moved using vibrational waves. Some kind of sound or musical tone. I was looking through my notes and found the name John Worrell Keely whom I had neglected to further research. Now I find this http://www.svpvril.com/svpweb10.html - Keely was famous for his dynaspheres, which are power generators capable of producing lift I think. Reading the site now, but it's a big mucked-up for navigation.

Looks like lots of people are building dynaspheres all over the world. Interesting...

It would seem stone was a good choice if you wanted your message to last. Perhaps other materials were not abundant during ice ages, or were not as resilient. As for how they moved the stones, General Knox moved several tons of cannons a thousand miles to Boston.
