– The clock is ticking, ticking, ticking……
This continues the detailed look at the Mystery Stone of New Hampshire.
The images on the top and bottom are circles with 8 triangles each. They appear as shown in the cropped images. 8 is an interesting number. It can be said to be 2³ and this always make me think of infinity: doubling, doubling, doubling in all directions. When the 8 triangles from the top and bottom are added together it sums to 16. The Earth moves at the rate of 66,624 miles per hour and so in any given day it moves nearly 1600,000 miles around the sun. The world tirelessly turns and turns rotating the heavens around us. It turns like two enmeshed gears. If the two images are put together a gear assembly is created.
Recall, in the prior post we had discussed the group of seven images plus the two on top/bottom creating the number 79. They can just as easily be arranged as 7 + 2 to create the number 72. The rate at which the pole star precession occurs is one degree per 72 years.
The overall length of the stone is 4 inches and its width is 2 ½ inches. 4 / 2.5 = 1.6. Here appears the 16 again. The distance Earth moves in a day is 1600,000 miles.
And continuing the idea that the oblate sphere represents the Earth, is there not a large white polar ice cap at each pole? A line through the pole points to the pole star. This stone had a hole in its top and bottom so that a staff/pole can be inserted in the bottom and another thin pole can be inserted out of the top. This creates a planet with two ice caps, a pole, and a reminder of the rate of precession of the pole star.
Summing up so far, our stone tells us we have a contemplative people who lived on a planet 7910 miles in diameter that turned at a fixed rate.
So far so good.
Next we look at the Tent / Tepee …. More to come as we decipher the Mystery Stone…
