It may be that the book gives the impression that it's only approximately correct and I'll take a look to see if the wording needs revising when I have a moment. Negative criticism of any sort can be great because it allows you to see where your writing is going astray.
When I did the original fit, the model predicted that the Great Trilithon would be located slightly differently, which later proved to be the case: When Anthony Johnson originally published 'Solving Stonehenge', there were two conflicting descriptions of where the stone was originally located: One location on page and one with a slightly different wording on page I wrote to the publishers saying that there was an error and also told them which one was likely to be correct though I didn't say why: They would have thought I was nuts.
Received a note from Tony about a year ago saying that I was right and that he would be including it in the revision list. Yes, but I thought it too complex a reason to explain in a short book such as this and it doesn't add much to the overall gist: In the novel, I called it 'Mhyrdin's Template' and had one of the girls partly describe why it was important.
There's illustrations of it in both its original and also its expanded form in the novel. Is it important do you think?
It's not something I thought I should make a great play on. How does your theory account for this? The outer ring of stones and lintels have recently been found to be incomplete in the south-west segment though I understand that Professor Parker Pearson thinks the evidence isn't conclusive. The mechanism does not require the south-west segment to exist at all. The only reason you would install it is for aesthetic reasons to make it look nice. Back in , when I did the original computer drawing renders for the novel, I decided to draw in most of the south-west segment as if it were 'complete' so that it would be recognisable as 'Stonehenge'.
However, I omitted Stones 17 and 18 from the published drawings because these were in a location where stones would be more of a hindrance than a help. Since that time, I understand the evidence tends to support the idea that Stones 17 and 18 were left out by the original builders of Stonehenge. Whether in or out, the south-west section is an 'extra' to the design: Something which makes it look nicer but is not required for it to be considered 'finished'. The reason for mentioning the novel again is that it was published well before any of the latest findings were made available.
And why add more concentric circles to the construction? And why haul bluestones from Preseli? And why dig the outer ditch?
And what explains all the empty pits? What do you think? Although there is much debate regarding Stonehenge, I believe that one point is clear; the builders of this monument were part of an intelligent society as Jon Morris suggests. Perhaps there have been too many paradigm changes between the Age of Stone to the Age of the Computer for the links of intelligence to be categorised. Would a modern day neuro surgeon be able to conduct an operation involving the removing of one or more parts of the skull without damaging the blood vessels, the three membranes that envelope the brain — the dura matter, pia mater and arachnoid — or the actual brain; not surprisingly, it is a procedure that requires both skill and care on the part of the surgeon, and with just using a small flake of flint as a scalpel?
Lloyd Matthews, Where is the evidence of such exceptionally advanced civilization that left no evidence behind? Or no need for evidence to make such claims. Hi Kostas There are a whole set of additional related coincidences concerning Stonehenge, but it is very time consuming to show what they are. The booklet was designed to be an easy read and to give the main ideas especially Chapter 1.
A much larger book could have been done by expanding on the detail, but I'm no expert on archaeology and I have no idea whether or not it would be of any immediate use to anyone to know what else there is. So I figured it would be better just to keep the initial booklet short and see how it does: It's probably not worth having a detailed discussion about stuff that's not in the book.
Anyway, I have always found the issue of Stone-Transport to be peripheral in the bigger scheme. Interesting to debate, but slightly tangential.
It would also crowd the bounds of cheek to debate them on this blog! The real issue for me has always revolved around intent. Constantinos Ragazas makes the point about 'finished' or 'unfinished'. Either one would tell us a great deal about intent. Finished would mean that they meant business so to speak, and that the nature of their belief-system was happily intact throughout the entire thousand-year project. Unfinished would tell us that they no longer practiced the rituals of whatever Sun-Based belief they adhered to, with the presumption that they very quickly moved on to something different.
There's lots more to say about that. Personally, I believe it was as finished as they intended it to be. As we now know, the craftsmanship of the Circle falls off starkly the further toward the Southwest we go, as seen from the Avenue. Our host Brian has long and rightly noted this aspect of the construct. Punky S is explained by being a required 'exit turnstile' for the Dead. But don't get me started on that one either! Since we know S was there, it leaves only one convenient gap in a clever Circle of 28 Sarsens.
I couldn't agree more. At that point the Culture had been in place with a few modifications for several thousand years. We can surmise indirectly that they were well aware of their natural surroundings - both Terran as well as Cosmological. With the advent of a knowledge-breakthrough in regard to the Central Nature of both Earth and themselves, it then becomes absolutely imperative that they build Stonehenge.
The degree of their sophistication can be debated, but I think the basic ethic speaks for itself. The argument really then becomes: 'What did they know, and when did they know it'. If Mr Morris' theory turns out to be correct in the end, it tells us that they knew quite a lot a long time ago. With regard to the Earth-Centric nature of the Universe, bear in mind that our own adolescent culture believed exactly the same thing until only a brief years ago. In composite, most of the latest information is telling us that they were well organized, highly skilled, and pretty bright overall. But what it actually says is: we have consistently underestimated a very sophisticated Culture for a very long time.
ND Wiseman. But that was not the question. What I ask is not how bluestones from Preseli were transported. But WHY? Couldn't smaller stones or even tree trunks taken from the immediate area do just fine for shiny shields to lean against? The problem for you Jon is once you propose a purpose to the construction of Stonehenge then all the other pieces of that puzzle have to fit the theory. And as I see it, too many pieces just don't fit. But then again, none of the archeologists made-up stories do any better in this regard.
And if I had to choose who I prefer make money on Stonehenge, I would pick you and Brian over all the erudite and pompous archeologists. It's always useful to get views: Perhaps you'll consider reading the booklet to find out what it is about? Brilliant summary.
Jon, Very much looking forward to reading your book. Currently embedded in John North's "Stonehenge: Neolithic Man and the Cosmos" which lends a lot of weight to the theory of a long tradition of star gazing. A regular contributor here recommended the book and thanks for that!
