|Description ||The main chamber. 09/04/09 |
| I do like this one. It captures the mystique of this strange chamber, and gives the pillar a similar aura to the megalith in '2001 A Space Odyssey'.|
| in many ways like the stele within Frébouchère dolmen, in La Vendée.|
| Note the relationship of light to dark. |
| According to the book"Uriel's Machine" the triangle of light seen here (and very well captured too) is a deliberate part of the design. The theory goes that around the time of the winter solstice the sun would be low enough in the sky for the triangle to find it's way up the pillar. The day's when it reached the cuts in the pillar would signify certain date's.|
It does work, as this photo shows. A lower, winter sun, would reach up the pillar.

Isn't it more likely a result of the barrows' partial reconstruction?
| The cuts in the pillar are where the ancients poured the water or milk just like the Olmecs and Brahman. |
What exactly do you guys think 2001 Space Odyssey' was about?
Warm that stone with a little sun, how clever

| So you travelled in time and watched them. Congrats. That's what Science Fiction is about... |
