GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

One year ago, precisely on July 6, 2022, an explosion destroyed the Georgia Guidestones l and to date no guilty has been found.

The Georgia Guidestones were a granite monument hewn in 1980 in an area that for the Cherokee people is Al-yeh-li A lo-Hee which translates to “center of the world,”  on Elberton territory, more precisely.

For years the Guidestones have been such a tourist attraction that they have earned the nickname America’s Stonehenge

Well, this is an undoubted exaggeration, but I speculate that the Guidestones constituted an excellent calling card for a locality that carries the slogan “The Granite Capital of the World.” on its website.

A monolith of about 119 tons is certainly remarkable.

The reference to Stonehenge is due to some special features including, for example, the placement of the four large outward-facing vertical blocks that were oriented to the limits of the moon’s migration during the course of the year.

An oblique hole at eye level allowed the pole star to be visible at all times, symbolizing constancy and orientation with the forces of nature.

And a slit in the center of the stone formed a “window” that aligned with the positions of the rising sun at the summer and winter solstices and equinox so that the midday sun shone to indicate noon on a curved line.

The creators intended the stones to function as a compass, calendar, and clock.

But what most connoted the Guidestones was the message proclaimed on the monument in 12 languages, including archaic languages such as Sanskrit, Babylonian cuneiform, Egyptian hieroglyphics and classical Greek, as well as English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish and Swahili.

The text consisted of ten points, ten tips, ten guides for the preservation of mankind and future generations.

Keep humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

Guide reproduction wisely, improving fitness and diversity.

Unite humanity with a “living” new language.

Rule Passion, Trust, Tradition and all things with tempered reason.

Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Let all nations rule internally, resolving external disputes in a world court.

Avoid petty laws and useless officials.

Balance personal rights with social duties.

Prize Truth Beauty and Love seeking harmony with the infinite.

Be not a cancer on the earth. Leave room for nature. Leave room for nature.

Even Agent Smith’s monologue defines mankind as a cancer in the 1999 film The Matrix

In general, these are concepts that recur while remaining ever relevant and lend themselves to interpretation according to the reader’s point of view.

The only specific indication is the first one.

When it was carved, the world population was well over four billion people.

 

Who could have thought to write such a thing then?

The story described by the Elberton Granite Finishing Corporation itself explains that the patron was “a mysterious group of sponsors” represented by one man: Mr. Christian, who introduced himself as R.C. Christian.

Message and mystery for mankind

that was the slogan on the explanatory brochure.

 

Mr. Christian said only that this monument had been planned for years and that the ten “guides” for the preservation of man and the earth had been carefully formulated as a moralistic appeal to all peoples regardless of nationality, religion or politics.

Guidelines that were defined as “applicable to life.”

Until May 2022 when a senator included among her campaign points the demolition of the Guidestones, or rather, the Satanic Guidestones. 

Kandiss Taylor also noted a particular coordination with respect to the placement of the Guidestones as explained in this May 3, 2022 tweet

On July 6 he then thanked God again via tweet

Video from a surveillance camera shows the moment of destruction:

 

 

The remains have been removed for security reasons.

There are those who speak of reconstruction and those who inflame controversy and theories.


What will be the truth?
We wait to be enlightened …

Meanwhile, the Elberton Granite Museum offers an older story.  🙂

LOST

LOST

Lost is an entirely unreleased track that anticipates the planned April release of the 20th anniversary celebration edition of Meteora.

2003: after Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park unveils Meteora and still do not know that their work will not be a meteor and will consecrate them to music history.

On Linkin Park’s website you can find these words

congratulations on solving all our puzzles and welcome to our warehouse

 

As you know I love puzzles

I don’t know if in the days during which the countdown appeared before the release of Lost you also tried to solve: clicking on the CD case a word game to guess appeared.

Cute, right?

Overall Lost was really a surprise, and honestly hearing Chester Bennington‘s voice in a totally unreleased track triggered a number of seesaw thoughts for me.

Among other things, the lyrics are particularly striking:

a scar somewhere down inside of me
Something I can not repair ...

I’m trapped in yesterday
Where the pain is all I know

… I’m lost in these memories …

But then, considering the official tweet set on the profile, I agreed to consider Lost as a “time capsule.”

 

In a less metaphorical sense, now the term time capsule is used to refer to an external hard drive for wireless storage, but it also remains the classic “time capsule” we are used to seeing in American movies and beyond.

For example, there is a capsule in the Well Room of the Torre Ghirlandina at the Civic Museum of Modena, which in this video tells us various interesting facts about it

 

 

What would you like to put in a time capsule?

According to the International Time Capsule Society there would be more than 10 thousand time capsules in the world. Only one in a thousand is found.

On Focus you can see a gallery with the nine most wanted capsules in the world.

They are lost

Linkin Park, however, made us find their time, their sense, and they put Anime in it.

Anime アニメ as Kasabake explains on the blog As Circles in the Water comes from “animēshon,” Japanese transliteration of the English word “animation.”

Unfortunately I have huge gaps in the subject, although I find the word Anime poetic and intense, maybe you would like to add something about this wonderful subject?

In the meantime, enjoy your viewing and listening

In an interview Mike Shinoda stated that Lost was not included on the Meteora album because of the sound being too similar to Numb.

What do you think?

LIVING THE SWEET LIFE

LIVING THE SWEET LIFE

Living the sweet life these are words that came to my mind when I discovered this incredible find.

Honestly, I didn’t really believe it right away, but in fact it was really communicated by an official source.

Galina Georgievna Fiódorova, an artist-restorer of the Hermitage Museum from St. Petersburg, while she was working on a dress of the Grand Duchess Ksenia Aleksandrovna Romanova Ксения Александровна Рома, noticed that one of the sleeves had been sewn for some reason, but the stitch was light enough, so she decided to remove the thread.

At that point something pink fell on her hand, it looked like a pebble.

Many have talked about chocolate.

A chocolate no less than 118 years old!

It is true that I have always maintained that chocolate cannot expire … laughing but here we would be over !!

Actually I would say that it is more of a candy.

Sugar.

The ubiquitous sugar.

Also long-lived …

The funny thing is that Ksenia took a bite and then, not knowing how to get rid of it, is supposed to have hidden the candy up her sleeve.

But there is something even more absurd: Galina declared that she had the instinct to… taste it !!

Here’s how she realized the sweet taste.

Some ancient instincts have probably been triggered

Infants actually study what happens in their hands by bringing it to their mouths, but honestly I would never have the instinct to “taste” an unidentified object.

What about you?

I know, it’s incredible, yet here you can find the video published on the official profile of the museum.

Galina and Nina Ivanovna Tarasova, curator of the costume fund of the Department of History of Russian Culture, talk about the restoration of the dress created for the famous 1903 costume ball and explain the unexpected discovery.

One of the sleeves was sewn for some reason, but the stitch was light enough and the restorer decided to remove the thread …

I know it’s a who cares news of the most extreme kind, but because of its absurdity I thought it should be told, above all to understand, have you ever hiding food in an unusual way? I know a slice of salami in my pocket, a sandwich in the leg …

And what could you have up your sleeve?

Better the classic “aces” perhaps, or not?
