The consensus among most scholars is the monuments, henges, pyramids, and alignments are to help the ancients know when to plant crops and keep a calendar. I believe this is rubbish. It’s time for a serious re-date and new look at the purpose that drove these creations.
Something about their knowledge of the universe, which surpasses our understanding was the key to their fantastic abilities many thousands of years ago. Harnessing a now unknown power of the night skies was imperative to their understanding of how to manipulate the natural forces of the cosmos and earth.
Have you ever felt like you are missing a sense, an ability, or an easier (should be obvious) understanding of the world or universe. Are we just a crippled bunch looking at the world as mentally handicapped people? For over 2500 years though confused submission, darkness has erased our past connection of higher enlightenment as we continue down errant paths.
In life, we are often (always/mostly) given two, or just a handful of choices between equally wrong things. Practically forced to pick a side at every turn, in one way or another. Creationist or evolutionist? Young earth, old earth, flat earth? Wtf? Left or right, conservative or liberal, theist or atheist? I think the latter may be the greatest trick of all. The choice to believe in god—or not believe in god has quite possibly distracted us from the self empowerment and abilities to draw the energy of enlightenment through oneness with the natural world.
In the world of shoes and indoor living, it is no wonder we have lost touch with our world. We are children of this planet, whatever your stances are, the composition of your body is separated from the soil, minerals, and elements that made you, replaced with rubber soles and synthetic trash.
Research is clear on the importance of touch. Babies die without it, while survivors spend a lifetime in disconnect from social normalcy, withdrawn and alone. We are disconnected from nature, its soils, its elements, its touch, and its energy.
The more sterile our cultures become, the farther the disconnect will be. We were meant to be in contact. Reach out to your local earth, let the grass and the dirt press up between your toes. Sit down and feel the renewing power of touch by physical contact with the natural world.
