-Thus it came to pass that the day the planet was to die was upon them, and there was no escape.

We have been discussing the images on the Mystery Stone of New Hampshire. The Face, the Top/Bottom Gears, the Tepee/Home, the Circle and the Arrows have been discussed in previous posts. Now the meaning of the Two Spears and the Shield is examined.

This is the image that has always made it very convincing this stone is about a treaty between two tribes. However logical that is, let us set it aside for the time being and reinterpret this image. Notice its position. It is centered within the seven images upon the back. It is the turning point of the story. Previously, we had “a rain of arrows” now we have something that looks like a truce. Could this indicate not only the turning point of the story but the final turning point for mankind?

People have been slowly coming to this realization these last few decades. Something big and bad happened to our planet. We cannot figure out where, or when, or exactly what. Here we have it spelled out for us and we still cannot see it.  I can only say we are not giving the subject justice in these brief paragraphs.

In looking at this image we see it is formed by two lines that cross at 90 degrees. The north pole is at 90 degrees.

Notice also if the image is inverted then one can see the shield is a crater. This is the impact of not one, but two comets perhaps at the north pole.

There are numerous comet craters that exist. The Pingualuit Crater in northern Canada is nearly perfect. Was this one of them? The Barringer Crater in Arizona is nearly perfect. Are these the two comet impacts or?  Or! Or! Or were they just impacts of what they called “hard rain”? Did the craters they are referring to here dwarf these perfect craters? Were there people who survived these impacts? There are many other crater possibilities. In future posts I suggest there are specific craters to which this symbol refers. I discuss the age of these craters and others according to geologists. This, too, is a lengthy and interesting topic.

So, now the story is speaking of a vast and great tragedy. It reads so far as: “We were a contemplative people who lived on a planet 7910 miles in diameter that turned at a fixed rate around a Sun of diameter 864,000 miles. And this place we called home. We measured our world and the heavens with rays of longitude. It was perfection. Our lives were complete until the day the meteorites came. And then the comets struck. We saw them coming. There were two which impacted with the planet, our home.”

Next we pause to look at another ancient source which repeats and confirms the idea put forth above……More posts to come as we decipher the Mystery Stone….

– It is not what is under the bed that is frightening, but what flies overhead.

(This is the conclusion to the series on the Mystery Stone. The compiled article is posted for those who missed a part to the left as a page.)

We have been discussing the images on the Mystery Stone of New Hampshire. The Face, the Top/Bottom Gears, the Tepee/Home, the Circle, the Arrows, Two Spears/Shield and similar Ancient Iraq art have been discussed in previous posts. Now we look at the innocent little spiral.

That innocent little spiral that stands alone so close to the bottom, is just a twirl. Is it innocent? We have seen it many, many times. It suggests revolution, infinity, turning, a whirlpool… Was it innocent? Or was it deadly? Was it so deadly that it takes a good understanding of engineering to grasp the how of it? What turned? How did it turn? Faster, slower, all around? Could it have turned? Something turned. What was the something? Or does it just mean the danger is all around us at all times, and is present still?

Many pages of discussion on this subject can be found in future posts.  The mechanics behind it from an engineering standpoint are explained in the paper: “A Planet Most Miraculous: The Mechanics of Earth’s Rotating Crust.” The what and how much is explained. But it is the ear of corn that tells us what turned and what happened.

So, let us look at that plain old ear of corn.

It is an ear of corn, plain and simple. Most importantly it has been shucked. The rows run in vertical lines. The kernels run in orderly squares. Remember that little square purse the fierce spirit held so firmly with his big muscular arm in the Assyrian relief from the prior post? It is the same idea. So here is a quick riddle that repeats and repeats in all this ancient art. What meets at right angles, runs in rows, runs in columns, segments round objects like in pine cones or kernels in corn? And from the image of the tent we can add, what fans out from a central pole?

Would an ear of corn not amply portray the concept of longitude and latitude to an intelligent scientific civilization, supposedly us, in the distant future? Given our knowledge base should we not be able to grasp that they are trying to convey the message that the impact of a comet turned the lines of longitude and latitude? Are they not saying that the planet was shucked like an ear of corn? But this is impossible!!! Not really. I give an explanation of the mechanics from an engineer’s viewpoint in the  paper linked at the sidebar.

We shall add credence to this interpretation. If you look at the stone from the top down, you see directly opposite to the corn is the tent. One represents longitude. One represents latitude. Between them is the central pole and the image of a gear. Longitude and latitude work together.  The dividers are poised alongside to measure the change.

– The fates chose me, the fates chose thee, the fates will choose again…

We have discussed all the images except for the last circle with the funny images within it. We will close by returning to the face.

This circle with the deer leg or arm thing seems like the artist was trying to draw a shield made out of pinto hide. When the realization dawns as to what it is, opinion changes. This can be interpreted in many ways. Is it an image of an arm raking and creating grooves with flames spouting out of mountains, and volcanoes in the upper part? It can also be seen as submerged land. Perhaps this is an image of what happened after the impact of the comet. The planet was raked. It was exploding, and ripping. It was being destroyed. As the surface was shucked the crust folded in places and chasms gaped wide in other places.

Where -oh- where was man during this assault upon the planet?

There he is in the same image. It changes now. Now we can see it as an arm swimming through debris. We see animals in the water with him. They are drowning as the oceans rolled out of their basins. This is what would happen if the planet is disturbed. This was not a tidal wave here and there. It was all at once. All of it. Water. It sweeps up and out of ocean basins like a tipped bowl. It is a force that cannot be reckoned with or imagined. They are swimming. They are all in the water on a drowning world. The deluge is upon the world. And it rained for forty days and forty nights.

Now the image of the face reappears. It is a chilling, cold image. It is a man floating and dead in water. A silent face bobs upon the dark black surface. Sightless eyes stare into nothing. Mankind is gone.

There is more to this story. I suggest that you not stop here. Future posts explain much more.

We close with the story of the stone:

We were a contemplative people who lived on a planet 7910 miles in diameter that turned at a fixed rate around a Sun of diameter 864,000 miles.

And this place we called home.

We measured our world and the heavens with rays of longitude. It was perfection.

Our lives were complete until the day the meteorites came.

And then the comets struck.

We saw them coming. Two impacted with the planet, our home. Because of the impact the earth was shucked like an ear of corn.

The surface turned.

The planet was raked and burnt. The ground split asunder. The mountains spewed forth flames. The people and all that lived were engulfed by the oceans. Nothing was spared. The deluge was upon the land.

We swam and swam and watched the animals drown. We swam and swam until we could not hold on.

We all perished. Our homes, our peace, our happiness, our knowledge, all gone.
