That was a good summary and well worth repeating. Ho ho.

I read somewhere that he was also a dabbler in electronics and there are photos of him with a kind of wooden derrick with a radio receiver or something like that on the top. I think the suggestion was that he was able to mess about with local gravity.

Not so far fetched really. The Ordnance Survey in some of its work did tests on gravity fields. I heard that nuclear bombs have to be set to reflect the local gravity before they go off. Something to do with the speed of light and things like that, I think.

There is a site devoted to the bloke with his writings and other things.

In Magnetic Current and complimentary writings, Leedskalnin provides instruction through experimentation and lecture into the interactions of the individual North and South pole magnet, a magnetic unipole. Since the individual North and South pole magnets are considered by Leedskalnin to be the base of everything, he is able to move in and out of seemingly unrelated scientific topics with ease drawing awakening correlations between them and shedding light on the true inner workings of our world and universe.

He seems to have been another Tesla kind of bloke who is ignored by the mainstream and dubbed 'eccentric '.

It could be that his building of Coral Castle was done to put his theories to the test and cock a snook at the learned gentlemen of the universities.

Build a replica stonehenge in your back garden once you've understood what he was going on about and let them all guess.

Reading into Leedskalnin's writings on his experiments with magnetism and electricity I was reminded of something.

Here's a picture of his perpetual motion holder.

He thought that electric current took the shape of a double helix which is basically what the caduceus is.

Here is a youtube series on his theories. Annoying music of course and robotic american voice but well worth watching. This is the first video of the series and I would recommend watching them all. It's simple enough for me to think I know what they're talking about.

Depends which stones you are talking about apparently.

The Daily Mail has yet another convoluted article on archaeology, but with a pretty picture.

Seems this young lady was one of the Beaker people and according to the Mail they came across from Holland and introduced Bronze making to the area they landed in north east Scotland. They also had their own take on stone circles.

The appearance of beakers at burial sites was also tied to the building of distinct stone circles which can be found in the area, and which were revealed to date from the same period.

'Much to people's surprise, these megalithic monuments were not neolithic, but a younger and local development contemporary with the region's Beaker burials,' the authors said.

Which suggests that these people spoke some form of early Dutch. And as they seem to have travelled all round the coast it's likely they brought their language to those areas as well.

I wondered what a daughter of Doggerland would look like.

Looks like we now know?

Welsh megaliths.
Or, more old stones than you can chuck a stone at.

Some might say it's proof that Wales was home to more megaliths than we usually acknowledge.

Tisi might say it's only because the property developers haven't bulldozed them for new property developments yet.

They all appear to be about 52.50 degrees north and 3.50 degrees west.

Is there any significance in that?

The link doesn't quite work. It brought up a suggestion from wiki that the correct site might be

The Underwater Ruins of Zakynthos

Who built these stones seemed quite straightforward (at first).

The archeologists of the Underwater Antiquities Department have discovered a huge public building dating back to ancient times, during their underwater survey off the coast of Zakynthos. The ruins were located at a depth of 2 to 6 meters.

According to the archeologists the 30-acre site features a visible cobblestone paving, bases for pillars and other strewn about building materials. At least 20 pillar bases were counted, all of which feature a 34 cm diameter incision, which were probably meant for wooden columns.

Note that these are in-the-field experts, with years of relevant experience.

But now, we are being told, the stones are nothing but a natural phenomenon. The "proof" is an article in the New York Times.
Ancient Civilization of Microbes, Not Greeks, Built ‘Lost City’

"Scientists have now discovered the reason there were no signs of human habitation at the site. The columns and other objects, they say, are not stonework at all, but a natural byproduct of the breakdown of methane gas. And they were made by an ancient civilization of microbes, not people."


Who are these "they say" scientists? It's Julian Andrews, a geochemist at the University of East Anglia. Who has never visited the site, but marvellously professes:
“This kind of phenomenon is quite rare in shallow waters. Most similar discoveries tend to be many hundreds and often thousands of meters deep underwater.


https://www.uea.ac.uk/about/-/underwate ... -formation

So it's completely different but still the same. These are the same kind of geochemists / geologists wheeled on as "experts" to remotely prove that the Egyptians couldn't possibly have used polymer concrete. Even when polymer concrete is found all over the place.

Coincidentally, the UEA is notorious as a primary source of rent-an-expert, bung-us-a-grant, bogus science. ClimateGate etc.

Coincidentally, the Greece Government is desperately keen on oil exploration in the same area.

Here's an interesting talk by an Australian linking ancient memory systems of Aborigines etc with Stonehenge and other sites. Plenty of photos I've never seen before.

Thanks! Plenty of compelling connections there. Well worth the viewing.

Harpo, can you get on your bike and go to one of her talks in London? Like this one:

Thursday 2 March,
Gravesend Skeptics in the Pub,
Monumental Memories:
No. 84 Tea Room and Eatery,
84 Parrock Road, Gravesend, Kent, DA12 1QF


http://gravesend.skepticsinthepub.org/E ... tics-Extra

Without writing, indigenous elders memorised a vast amount of factual information on which survival depended both physically and culturally: knowledge of thousands of animals and plants, astronomical charts, vast navigation networks, genealogies, geography and geology … the list goes on and on. How did they remember so much? And why does this explain the purpose of ancient monuments including Stonehenge, Easter Island and the Nasca Lines? Can we use these memory methods in contemporary life?


Like Megalithomania, but with beer.
