In the link that Boreades provided they admit they are setting out to prove beyond reasonable doubt that energy lines and I don't know what else really exist. It is not hard to find what you expect to find. Still, I expect the god particle will manifest itself at Cerne, eventually.
I'll admit that it's all too easy to delude oneself e.g. when looking for geometric patterns while staring at OS maps, as "evidence" of megalithic terraforming etc. LOOK - THERE'S A TRIANGLE!!! etc. But I wouldn't want our natural scepticism to blind us to the possibility that someone has actually found a tangible way of measuring something genuine. Even if they do then project it into delusional territories. Maybe the gentle and genuine way to resolve our doubts is to try and replicate the measurement techniques?
