Rain is hindering my departure here. I wsa thinking all afternoon
about ley lines, vortexes, energy grids, dowsing...not scientific
terms within the science I was taught. But I am hearing these terms
used more and more by avocational and PhD scientists and I am just
looking up a few basic things here, not calling for a personal
The Allouez, Michigan 'vortex' mentioned on a couple of posts earlier
today has drawn many to the site. Hoping Aurora Borealis would appear
during the night, I camped on the high ground there years before
trees were thinned and anyone was calling it a vortex. I sleep poorly
and actually get a bit hyper there so avoid excess time there. On two
or three occasions I have met two Michigan Technical University
professors at the site with their dowsing rods. Both I believe follow
posts at this site. Should they see subjects relevant to their work,
it is my hope they will feel inclined sign on.
In Western Minnesota when visiting Viking researcher Marion Dahm for
a Kensington Runestone conference and field trip, dozens of
townspeople. including the mayor, two teachers, minister and high
school students, adeptly used 'rods' when exploring habitation sites
and old dried lakes & riverbeds. They seemed to have no qualms about
calling it "witching", and the practice in rural areas of that part
of the country is widespread.
When our family built a ski area w/lodge on a 700+ verticle foot
granite 'mountain' in rural Upper Michigan in 1958, thousands of
dollars were spent unsuccessfully that first year on professional
well-drilling. Our large family spent months hauling water in trucks,
filling toilet tanks so we could keep the new business open.
Townspeople recommended a white haired, very elderly man who
quivered, quaked, and gyrated for a considerable time across the
property, finally fell on the ground with his willow stick. Drilling
the next day brought a gush of abundant results which have, for half
a century now, provided water for thousands of daily tourists. I know
because I was there and as skeptical as all. Except our father--whose
folks came from an old Indiana farming background.
A little folded paper was sent to me years ago from Sedona "Sedona
Vortex Map" showing four major vortex areas in Sedona atop high
ground, and not sure if this relates--numerous creeks, rivers,
canyons at the base. Hand-written on the front, the sender was
unable to find the source of the theories stated. Vortexes are
described as swirling certers of subtle energy coming out from the
surface of the earth. Farther down: "Juniper trees respond to the
vortex energy in a physical way that reveals where this energy is
strongest. The stronger the energy, the more of na axial twist the
Juniper trees have in their branches. Instead of going straight down
the branch, the lines of growth follow a slow helical spiral along
the length of the branch, and the spirialing effect can somethimes
even bend the branch itself."
What I do know is that this exactly fits the description of the trees
on the Allouez hilltop "vortex". The hill is located atop the
massively copper-veined Keweenaw Fault, and twisted evergreen trees
could be caused by other factors such as mineral content and the
water sources feeding the stie. A small stream runs below but steep,
rocky dry gorges indicate heavy runoff or old/ancient river.
Ley lines: I may have sent this previously, but find it to be an
excellent article: "Comments on Ley Lines", by Joe Parr
w/Introduction by Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association, John
Energy grids I am not going to get into but hope Pam, Rick, Steve and
others will elabborate more when the term comes up in future posts.
I don't believe these subjects are off-topic because we are talking
about possible "energy centers" in association with (or that
attracted) the placement of habitation and burial sites located along
specific ancient riverway and Great Lakes travel/trade routes.
Energy/power grids: I found a Science @ NASA web site referring
to "renewable energy sources and their integration into the power
grid..." Can further insights into ancient practices be carried into
future scientific technology?
I believe one of these already has a good start: master craftsman,
engineer and author of "The Giza Power Plant-Technologies of Ancient
Egypt" (1998), Christopher Dunn, who will be a speaker at the Ohio
conference in October. He may be one to get into a fascinating
informal chat with on any of the above subjects. Many of us have done
so at the World Explorers Club conferences in Kempton, Illinois Pam
Giese told us about years ago where I became acquainted with
Christopher, Steve Garcia (from our AWS group), David Hatcher-
Childress, many others. Dunn's precise measurement and research has
led him to suggest that the Great Pyramid of Giza and deliberate
positioning of its numerous chambers and passageways 'to be a large
acoustical device-a crystal edifice which created a harmonic
resonance with the Earth and converted the Earth's vibrational
energies to microwave radiation'.
NEXUS Magazine lists numerous articles and books under "New Science":
Before signing off, I am acquainted with a great number of you here
and at a few other groups. From private and Yahoo group posts, I am
finding it astounding how your profiles, backgrounds, interests
and/or research crosses paths with others here. Many of you don't
realize the synchronicities some of you have with each other.
I believe your continuing intercommunications working together or
following posts at these sites can be an enhancement to each of you.
Plus, who knows, maybe you will be contributing to one of the great
colloborative humanitarian advances coming up within Future
