    Theres a picture of what they describe as "ART"
    it has parallel lines inscribed at different angles, any idea about what art that is?

    Isn't photography "art"?
    Thank you for the link.
    I didn't ask You in particuler, i would have added your name if i had.
    I do not view it as art, they who ever called it art , called it art, thus I asked.
    I view it as descriptive, as I view pictures, though I must admit some of the better photographers are very artfull.

    Well kev old bean,
    victim to your own history here........hoisted by your own petard perchance?
    However one has to give credit where credit is due and this is an exceptionally lucid response for you.........just goes to show that you must have episodes of lucidity much like most have episodes of dysfunction!
    Which is the real Kevin?
    can the real kevin stand up please!

    Muddymick,Old fart,( a reaction to beans)
    Have You any input about the content of this thread???

    If You desire to talk shop, that is Your expertise in personal relationships, with special reference to My constant defensive reaction posts back to a never ending pile of garbage thrown My way by the so called megalithic experts, feel free to start a seperate thread.
    Hope that is lucid enough for You.

    There is only ONE.

    Great to see you peep in here, how are thee t'old fruit???
    Maybe You could have a ganders at the so called ART on that link to the digs at Orkney, You may have an idea as to what I consider they show?
    You don't suppose there were dowsers like me and thee about all them years ago......do You?
    The most permanent method of leaving a record over time is to leave it inscribed in stone, these modern photographs will wither and fade, in short time, but some things remain absolutely still and set as stone.

    Hi Kevin,
    Fancy asking someone from the Midlands to have a look at the wonderful sites at Orkney, are you wanting me shot or something, you know I believe they all outdate anything we have down south, Stonehenge included. Very Happy I have looked at some of the links but cannot find the lines you mention, are these lines carved on the stones/monoliths, help me out mate, or are you talking of where standings stones exist,perhaps meeting others running parallel to each other ? I have a report if your interested with dates, that I should say are much older than those reported and an opinion of the many wonderful places to see there....Remember its only my second post so far, so hope Im allowed to remain for a little bit longer, when I stick my head above the trench. Cool

    Thar's nowt wrong wit reet folk, and thee be alreet.

    If You go on the origonal link on the first post of this thread, on the right hand side is a list of topics, press the third one down about art, it shows some of the stones with markings on that they have termed art, I reckon they are more descriptive and informative left by strange people who are now sent to Coventry and area.

    alignments

    Post  cropredy on Sun Feb 20, 2011 2:44 pm

    looking further at the origonal link I note a wording of "roughly east/west, I would add this link about the ROUGHLY east/west alignments of 1750 churchs across this land, and I would point out how they move across the width of this land in orientations.
    http://www.britarch.ac.uk/ba/ba94/feat2.shtml

    I have checked countless of these orientations myself in My own odd ball way, and can confirm the orientations are the self same as the megaliths were constructed to, and that is a lattice matrix.
    I know this gets many in a spin, as it does myself both to the left and the right,
    http://www.eioba.com/a85528/torsion_fields_theory_of_physical_vacuum_shipov_and_keim

    The so called torsion fields are imho responsible for time, every bit of mass interacts symbiotically with it's creator, that is time, that is the torsion field flows that travel upon the afor mentioned matrix.
    I realise how this may annoy stoneheads , but the fields are circulating about YOU right now, it's life folks, but not how we have known it, but the megalithic builders did, as did the Normans.

    Hi Kevin,
    Well here goes, I find the situation close to what you do, the straight lines cut into the rock I feel are energy/Ley Lines crossing the area local to where the rock was found, marking the passage of the Sun and Moon rising and falling during the year east to west. Just like we might make notes in a book, this person has carved the rock with what he/she has found the paths to be for the year, the LACK of anything running north /south shows this rock to contain details of the Suns/Moon passage, I date the rock and huge stone carving to plus 3000 years old when it was carved.The huge stone shows some details of a sacred site, containing both radail and concentric forces we find at those places, which sets them apart from all other ancient sites I believe...Come back with more later.
