Re: [ancient_waterways_society] hexagon
The following link shows primary site documents from the Discovery of the Mike Morekock Tablet as well as photos of this interesting artifact. It is named after the finder by Liz Kassly, who drew the soil profile images.
The tablet was found by Mike Morelock buried in a tiny pit of a wall trench that was part of an unusual house structure. The unusual house structure had a north facing opening and was a T-shaped structure. At the time, Liz and Mike did not know what the tablet was. They assumed it was a sandstone abrader. They bagged it and sent it to John Kelly's Laboratory called Fingerhut. Later, it was discovered to be a tablet at ITARP. Liz Kassly stated it should be called the Morelock Tablet, to name it after the finder.
Your author colorized the soil profile images using the Munsell scale according to color references. This artifact was found about halfway between Monks Mound and Fox hill Mound. It is made of sandstone. One side is engraved with a crosshatching pattern with (x) shaped lines interconnecting around the edges with an alternate pattern of Hexagons and cubes formed from equilateral triangles.
The only other examples with crosshatching and the cube pattern known are from a cache pit at an oneota site in site 13-wd-7 in Iowa and one from Blombous Cave , South Africa .
One of the most interesting features of this stone is its geometric and mathematical properties and its Pythagorean properties. Ross Hamilton identified similar icons in "The Mystery of the Serpent Mound" on pages 29-47.

The Pythagorean College was first to bring this up fo the record, saying that 6 was a perfect number in that its various divisors, i.e. 1,2,and 3, add to 6. The fact that six spheres or disks of equal diameter perfectly surround a single sphere or disk is one of the enduring mysteries of geometry, and led the Pythagoreans to speculate that six and one were inseparable and sacred, 1 representing the Creator and 6 the Son. You might notice that a good camera lens will divide sunlight into a six-pointed star on the film when confronted directly by the light.Serpent Mound is believed sacred to the One and the Sun or Son.Ross

The Gonzo Scientist, who writes in our local Duluth street paper, said the planet Saturn has a distinct hexagonal pattern at the north pole which rivals the rings for attention. Noticed the hexagonal shape turning up in posts. Is that what bees build? Just reporting coincidence.
