Crop Circles are considered by some people forms of sacred geometry


Crop circles (not sure why you feel the need to capitalize the "c" in circle) use geometry because that's how people lay out a design in a field, it's not sacred, it's practicality.

If they were a little more acute and understood geometry, particularly the 3,4,5 triangle, they could make crop squares and crop rectangles.

Are they so creatively obtuse that they must forever continue to go around and around in circles?

Avebury
is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire, in southwest England. One of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain, it contains the largest stone circle in Europe. It is both a tourist attraction and a place of religious importance to contemporary pagans

archaeologists believe that it was most likely used for some form of ritual or ceremony

Within the henge is a great outer circle. This is one of Europe's largest stone circles,[29] with a diameter of 331.6 metres (1,088 ft), Britain's largest stone circle.[30] It was either contemporary with, or built around four or five centuries after the earthworks. It is thought that there were originally 98 sarsen standing stones, some weighing in excess of 40 tons. The stones varied in height from 3.6 to 4.2 m, as exemplified at the north and south entrances. Radiocarbon dating of some stone settings indicate a construction date of around 2870–2200 BC.[31]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avebury

The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God ('God is a circle whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere' (Hermes Trismegistus)).

It's a circle and it's symbolism......symbol for infinity and speaking of infinity ....there is that number PI which is symbolized by π.....which resembles the character in the Tetragramaton's name

one can only guess at the purpose of any megalithic site. Rupert Soskin makes an excellent point in his film Standing With Stones. Buildings are constantly reused for purposes other than those they were originally intended to be built for. Churches get converted into apartments, I used to work for a Japanese bank in a wonderful building that was once the General Post Office building for the City of London. Those stone circles were likely used for a variety of things in their long history

Yes apartment buildings and other buildings come and go over the centuries
but Newgrange and the Pyramids have lasted thousands of years ...

The Great Pyramid of Giza ....they didn't build over it

Both Egyptian pyramids and the regular square pyramids that resemble them can be analyzed with respect to the golden ratio and other ratios.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ra ... s_(cropped).jpg

Many of the proportions of the Parthenon are alleged to exhibit the golden ratio.

They had a woodhenge....

Fascinating discovery

A vast prehistoric ceremonial complex has been uncovered in a city around 2.4 km (1.5 miles) from Britain's Stonehenge.

The site is further evidence that, hundreds of years before Stonehenge was built, the entire region was more ritualistically active than archaeologists had previously thought. And it could shed light on why the mysterious circular stone monument was built in the first place.

"The surfaces of the rock must be looked at with the greatest care, I mean minutely, for traces of graffiti," Biddle says, citing other tombs in the area that must have been of considerable importance because they are covered with crosses and inscriptions painted and scratched onto the rock surfaces.

"The issue of the graffiti is absolutely crucial,” Biddle says. “We know that there are at least half a dozen other rock-cut tombs below various parts of the church. So why did Bishop Eusebius identify this tomb as the tomb of Christ? He doesn't say, and we don't know. I don't myself think Eusebius got it wrong—he was a very good scholar—so there probably is evidence if only it is looked for."

The entire universe could be a hologram

Talk about a reality check: The entire universe could be a "vast and complex hologram," scientists reported Monday. Also, even more unsettling, what we think of as reality may be just an illusion.

http://www.sciencealert.com/this-might- ... a-hologram

This Could Be The First Observational Evidence That Our Early Universe Was Once a Hologram
The basic idea is that the volume of space is 'encoded' on a boundary - or an observer-dependent gravitational horizon - which means it requires one less dimension than it appears.

"Imagine that everything you see, feel, and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field," says one of the team, Kostas Skenderis from the University of Southampton in the UK.

"The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms, where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card. However, this time, the entire Universe is encoded."

Why ???
because it has the Metatron Cube in the heart of the design

Game of Thrones Spoiler Alert

and how does Game of thrones connect with RLC....well look at the studio set designers use of the black cube design on the Magdalene chapel floor at RLC for the throne room of Dragonstone
it has a magical quality doesn't it

Hmm, I think linking GOT to RLC is a bit of a jump. However Ed Sheeran reminded me of Les Troubadours. The new series is great, I'm a big GOT fan!

My main GoT takeaway is to never, ever trouble the little Children of the Forest into defending themselves.

Oh yes the Children of the Forest created their own worst enemies

love the stone circles just like the stone circles in Europe

I love the connection through the whole series with trees and not just foliage but family trees
how certain families play important parts in the history of Westeros

It leads to a chapel, not a castle. "The islet is called Gaztelugatxe, which means "castle rock," and the staircase connects it to the mainland on the Bay of Biscay in northern Spain."

Isn't it beautiful
the walkway or stair case reminds me of the winding staircase in the New Orleans Cathedral picture of the Templars and Crusaders returning home from the Holy Land

http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/sta ... ?s=170667a

I believe it has a church on top Saint John the Baptist

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Juan_de_la_Pe%C3%B1a

The monastery of San Juan de la Peña is a religious complex in the town of Santa Cruz de la Serós, at the south-west of Jaca, in the province of Huesca, Spain. It was one of the most important monasteries in Aragon in the Middle Ages. Its two-level church is partially carved in the stone of the great cliff that overhangs the foundation. San Juan de la Peña means "Saint John of the Cliff".
The lower church includes some mozarabic architectural surviving elements, although most of the parts of the monastery (including the impressive cloister, under the great rock) are Romanesque. After the fire of 1675, a new monastery was built. The old monastery (built in 920) was declared National Monument on 13 July 1889, and the new monastery in 1923. In the 11th century the monastery became part of the Benedictine Order and was the first monastery in Spain to use the Latin Mass.
The cloister, built ca. 1190, contains a series of capitals with Biblical scenes that originally were arranged in chronological sequence, a design found elsewhere in the region


but here is the interesting part and what a coincidence
Legend said that the chalice of the Last Supper (Holy Grail) was sent to the monastery for protection and prevention from being captured by the Muslim invaders of the Iberian Peninsula. It is alleged to be the same cup that was presented in 1438 by Alfonso V of Aragon to the Valencia Cathedral

A bit off topic to the original thread, but after 93 pages I reckon that's happened a few times.
Thanks both TCJ and Lov, I'd never seen the original location. Remember some here may not have seen GOT so no spoilers lol.
Thanks for the image host TCJ, I'll check back in the uk for my latest pics.
Enjoy the next few episodes, those who are into GOT

Thanks Nic for the reminder and I can't wait to see the next Game of Thrones

Another interesting fact is that the surrounding caves

San Juan de Gaztelugatxe also played a role, albeit small, during the Spanish Inquisition. Witches and their ritualistic meetings known as Akelarre in Basque, make up a part of the Basque mythology. For this reason, the Catholic Church focused much of its time during the inquisition hunting for witches in the region. Several accounts seem to indicate that many of the accused were locked up in the caves of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe.

Lots of these women were healers and knew the medicinal arts
