It’s known as one of the strangest monuments in America. It’s called The Georgia Guidestones and seems to provide post-apocalyptic instructions in eight languages, including Swahili and Aramaic. No one knows who commissioned the monument or how it came into being.
We read an article in Wired Magazine about it after seeing a photo and commentary about the Guidestones in Nancy Atkinson’s blog. We weren’t really thinking about doing a post on it until a synchronicity came into play. The guidestones, it seems, were calling.
First, a bit more info. The stones have existed on a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia for about 30 years. They consist of five slabs of granite, each 16 feet tall. A 25,000 pound capstone rests atop the slabs, four of which weigh more than 20 tons. Apparently a series of notches and holes relate to movement of the sun and stars.
While based in the heart of the Bible Belt, the monument’s text has a New Age flavor referring to universal love instead of any deities. For that, it has been attacked as the Ten Commandments of the Antichrist. The Guidestones were recently defaced with spray-painted graffiti.
Notes the article in WIRED, “Whoever the anonymous architects of the Guidestones were, they knew what they were doing: The monument is a highly engineered structure that flawlessly tracks the sun. It also manages to engender endless fascination, thanks to a carefully orchestrated aura of mystery.”
After reading the article, we asked Connie Cannon (MathAddict) who lived most of her life in Georgia if she ever heard of the monument. Not only had she heard of it, but she was leaving shortly for a wedding in Georgia and had plans to visit the monument, which was on their route. She said she would send photos.
A mysterious monument and a neat syncho.
