Fields around Stonehenge and Avebury and the Rollright Stones
There is a consistency of pattern that appears again and again on the sides of standing stones and in the landscape around henges that can be identified by reflecting the image. When I observe this, I see symbols like rams heads but the marks have little relationship to the real animal. When asking people what they see in the image, some people see rams heads but others see faces and symbols that I haven’t noticed. What the reflected image does show is a grid of marks that have a pattern in the fields around stone henge, Avebury and other circles. These patterns can be described by mathematics and the marks in the fields give us a graspable truth of the nature of these objects.
Following on from my posts about the possible use of stone circles and standing stones, I thought I would take this opportunity to describe in more detail about how I believe they were used. So, said simply... my research has led me to the conclusion that they were used as animal traps and subsequently the hub of communities but that the stones were used as an anchor to a spring that held the structure. I call this a trellis spring and so I'm going to attempt to describe how it would work using my drawings below. A trellis spring is made by building a spiral out of squares. By the pattern of expansion it is the fourth square that is doubling in volume - then like a seashell as additional trellis structures are added, they cover and embrace the first three squares. The seventh square is doubled and the end of the ninth square is what you're pulling on. It's two of these springs being pushed together by two long poles that join the trellises and act as levers to make the trellis spring. These two long levers are then part of a much larger trellis that is four times bigger that the first square. As the larger trellis moves it forces this spring backwards and forwards against the faces of the standing stones. The first picture shows the two of these expanding spirals facing eachother. The second picture shows how they are pushed together. The third picture shows them with their levers added and so becoming fully formed. The fourth picture is a tracing showing the similarity in pattern on the side of an Avebury stone. The fifth picture is this stone. The sixth picture shows a maori flower weaving made out of a single blade of flax that is woven and follows a similar principle of expansion that I have described. The last picture is a trellis that I started to construct to show a rough idea of what I think this may have looked like. As a person, I have always seen pattern and shape very easily but I would love to have some mathematics that backs this up.....
Images on a single stone
Here is a picture of two stones which clearly illustrate through the use of mirrored reflection a distinct patterning of unfolding energy. Whether made by man or nature itself, it reminds me of the fibonacci sequence, which starts at a centre point and through the law of the golden mean spirals outwards. If I can pick a random stone and with a mirror show this sequence then surely a discovery has been made...
Ancient stone tools
I live in a Welsh longhouse opposite an ancient hill fort called Merlin's Hill, in the Towy Valley, with the river flowing toward the estuary at Llansteffan. This would have certainly been an area that has been inhabited by human beings for millennia and so I started to find stones within my local area of all shapes and sizes. I found that these hand held stones also had a consistent pattern and shape which I believe suggests that they were used by ancient people as some kind of tool. Once again, using the mirror I have demonstrated the outward flow of energy on each stone, this is illustrated both on the patterning of the stone itself and the outer edge of the stone.
salvaged standing stones
After studying standing stones for so long, I have found that as I work on the farms around my home I have a natural interest at looking at all the stones that I come across. I have noticed that some of the stones that I found reminded me of standing stones and stone circles in both their shape and markings. The first image shows some of the stones that I have salvaged from my local area and I have photographed them with the light casting across the front of the stone to accentuate their patterns. The second and third photograph shows one of these stones using the mirror as a reflective tool, which illustrates the powerful imagery of the unfolding energy that has been etched into the stone.
Not far from the standing stone on the home page (Annell Carreg), these photos show images of a similar design which reminds me of the Celtic patterns and faces of horned Gods and Deities. There is a complex set of worn scars on all the faces of the stone, carved by a structure that potentially opened and closed over and anchored to the stone.
Heel Stone at Stone Henge
By using mirror imaging these pictures have allowed the mind to see the rough centre of the unfolding energy of the trellis that scars and shapes the standing stone. This has given the illusion of animal heads, wings and legs and gargoyle aztec masks that brings to mind rock art from around the world. This is the Heel stone at Stone Henge split by the mirror... what do you see?

A Tell is a type of archaeological mound created by human occupation and abandoned. Ancient Jericho is a Tell and using an old aerial photograph of Jericho which separated with a mirror, reflects itself showing an image of the rams head. This is a much more sophisticated structure than what is spoken about in this website.
