RE: Is Stonehenge is a tribute to people from another world?

It has been proven that a single man has the ability to lift several thousands of pounds of rock on his own using the right technique. The only thing that riddles me, is the cutting on stones..some of them extremely perfect. They would need some sort of laser/diamond cutter. Something way andvanced. Stonehenge to me isnt a big deal at all. Just because the rocks are mearly just rocks. Theres a youtube video of a man standing stones of these same weight ranges on his own. He was spinning them with one hand by simply placing a small rock underneath it. He then showed how to stand a huge rock. Which he did a teeter totter effect and every time it lifted on one end he would place a board on the opposing end. He kept doing it until it was almost standing, but still at a slight slant.. to get it to stand completely on its own..he sprayed water at the foot of it..and the soil withered due to the moisture and the weight of the boulder...eventually after spraying water it was standing completely straight. And bare in mind he did it alone.. he was a middle aged man and slightly overweight as well. So its not impossible and didnt take alien power to stand these huge rocks at all. The cutting is something i cant comprehend though. Thats the real story.

Heres a link to a video demonstrating his technique. Its true and real. Not as impressive as you may think... id be more interested in digging under stonehenge... these types of designs were usually made to signify the burial of giants or strange beings.

After a recent visit to photograph the standing stones at Avebury many interesting features have come to light in the associated images.

As this thread is mainly about Stonehenge, I will start a new topic to cover Avebury and some of the other smaller neolithic sites of interest that are in the same area.

Here is the same view as the first image shown in the thread.

Since experimenting with various techniques to reveal 'hidden' surface detail I decided to use the same technique on this image.

The result is quite remarkable.

Now the stones can be viewed as you've never seen them before.

Here is my analysis of what can be seen on the south side of stone #46 at Avebury. The finding of so many 'hidden' artistic features on the stones that were erected during the neolithic period is a new discovery and has not been documented in detail anywhere else.

It would appear from the features observed on this particular stone that the people of the time who applied these skills were very advanced. Special tools had to have been used to create these artistic works on the hard sandstone. Britons of the time were still living in the stone age but analysis of the carvings on some of the other stones proves that the civilization that erected these huge monuments and crafted the surfaces were very modern in comparison.

It is possible that you may not visualize the features as I see them. If the surface is studied very closely it's possible you may spot even more features. To aid recognition try zooming out a little.

This view of stone 46 is the same as the image shown above, only in this image I have used a simple technique to reveal the 'hidden' features of which there are many.

Here is the same view which is equivalent to double the distance away from the stone.

Do you see anything recognizable on the surface?

Here is an image I captured of the south face of stone #46. This stone is known as the 'Swindon' stone. It is one of the larger stones and is situated at the northern entrance to the circle.

See if you can spot anything on the surface.

On Monday, I travelled to the Avebury monument with a view of photographing many of the stones from different angles. What an interesting experience it turned out to be. The last time I had visited the monument was when I was a teenager, many years ago. A friend who travelled with me to the site was very skeptical about the carvings but said that the shapes had recently started to become apparent to so a visit to see the 'real thing' was very welcome.

Besides photographing nearly every stone I was also in a position to check out first-hand whether the carvings of anthropological shapes seen in this thread are genuine. I can now positively confirm the carvings on the stones are genuine. The images I captured are showing many more interesting shapes, not only of human-like heads and faces but heads and faces of animals as well.

I also had the opportunity to check the surfaces of the stones in an effort to determine the amount of erosion after 5000 years. I can report that the amount of erosion is very minimal, but where a pool of water had formed in the past on the top of some of the stones a vertical channel had been formed over time due to water running down the stone, but this erosion was only evident on a couple of the stones. 

Some other visitors I spoke to said they also had noticed heads and faces on some of the stones but did not understand why they were created.

All in all, it was a very interesting experience and well worth the visit.

As I have said before, I dont see these faces on the rocks, and I posted a fuller explanation elsewhere. No-one has gone there and replied apart from Xenon, so we few have to be just about the only the ones who cannot see these faces as ancient carvings.

Notice how you were ignored.  I see the shapes if I look hard enough, but you are looking at extremely weathered stones that have sat there for thousands of years, so even if carvings were put on those stones, they should be invisible by now.

Qmantoo, please feel free to state your opinion clearly.  Don't worry about people disagreeing with you, it's how we all learn.

Shown below is an image that was captured at Stonehenge.

The content showing in this image has to be the best example yet of superb artistic forms that were created during the neolithic period. I have never studied this stone before this evening and I am absolutely amazed at what else is showing in the image.

If at first you don't see anything, look at the distant stone for a while and then the multiple combined artforms should become apparent. 

Have a look and see what you think.

These observations are in no way pareidolia.

In one of the images I posted above I said there are over 30 different carvings of faces but I have to presume that no one has spotted them.

Shown below is the same image with a rectangle around many of the carvings. If you look closely you will probably find there are many more as one carving may be integrated in the carving of another. This is fantastic neolithic artwork on a grand scale. Take note that some of the carvings give the impression that the race of people who erected these huge monuments were highly civilized and technically advanced.

Why has this artwork not been noticed before?

The examination of an unusually shaped stone has revealed yet more neolithic artistic works.

At first glance, the object looks like another large standing stone. Moving back and analyzing the stone reveals that it was roughly sculpted to form the outline and shape of a kneeling figure.

Moving closer reveals some interesting surface features. Decoding the features reveals some anthropological shapes.

Two images are shown. The first is the original image. The second image has been slightly processed to enhance the surface detail.

The three stones shown in the above image are not grouped together. The center stone is part of the large outer circle. This stone is one of the southern portal stones and is larger than the other two stones. There is another portal stone which cannot be seen in the view.

The left and right-hand stones are part of the smaller southern inner circle. Also, there is a northern inner circle at the site, but unfortunately not many of the stones in this circle are still standing.

The image below shows the three stones in context. The view was taken looking in a southerly direction.

Good point about the 'acid-rain'. The last time I visited the Avebury site there was little evidence of the rain attacking the stones. More damage has been caused in the past by humans and animals rubbing up against the stones.

Shown below is a monchrome negative view of the image shown above that I have called the "Avebury Aliens".

Concentrating on the detail carved into these three stones may intrique you. You may also find that one face leads to another face or that one face may morph into another. This is perfectly normal as the artist has worked this effect intentionally. It would appear that each stone portrays a representation of who these people or their ancestors were. One should not be surprised if some unusual features are observed such as a male face with the face of an animal alongside.

In this negative view, take note of the number of heads that display a cranial protrusion. This small lump at the front of the cranium would appear to be a common feature primarily to this particular species as the cranium of the skulls that have been found of ancient britons do not display this particular feature. There is only one other place where these pretrusions can be seen and that is on carvings that are on some of the rocks and stones on our sister planet - Mars. I'm not saying that the people who erected Stonehenge and Avebury came from Mars but one has to admit that the similarities in the carvings would appear to be more than sheer coincidence.

The more one looks into this image the more will be found especially if you can zoom in. It really is a neolithic masterpiece and whoever crafted the carvings had a very high degree of intelligence and knew exactly what they were doing and the effect their work would have on succeeding generations who cared to take notice.

Great observations...I'm concerned about the 'acid-rain' destroying the evidence.

Here is a breakdown analysis of what is 'hidden' on the stone shown in the above three images. The majority of the stones at Avebury and Stonehenge have these anthropomorphic features but people who visit to the two sites never spot them - all they see are large standing stones.

I have highlighted many of the features with a rectangle. The artwork on this stone gives the viewer a good idea of the appearance of the people that lived during the late-neolithic period. There are also many other antropological features on the stone that I have not highlighted. 

There are no reports from archaeologists or antropologists about the features, so this find has to be an original discovery. I am sure that confirmation of the features displayed will be verified by archaeologists and anthropologists in the near furure.

Some of the features may appear feint but this is probably due to weathering. Just imagine what the features must have looked like when they were originally carved.

Do you see the features I have highlighted?

I believe that what is showning in the images below is the most exquisite neolithic art I have ever seen on a stone at Avebury. The detail of the shapes that have been formed into the stone is truly magnificent.

Staring carefully into the images reveals some really interesting features. The 'laying' effect can be seen at the different viewing distances.

When I start to investigate an individual stone at Avebury and start breaking down what is in the image by highlighting small sections, it's amazing what this process reveals.

In the image shown below there are over 30 detailed faces. Can you spot them?

In a post above I mentioned that the ancients employed a 'layer' technique in their artwork. They were able to create a small carving that would become an integral part of a larger work and then, part of an even larger work. Therefore, the view to the observer would change when seen from different distances. I feel the series of images shown below gives us some idea of the artisans' skill and how they mastered the sophisticated technique.

This particular series of images is very special, but I will explain more later.

Who were these advanced and highly skilled people and more importantly, where did they come from? They certainly were not the ordinary neolithic Britons of the time. 

Do you see any carvings in any of the images or notice how the whole view appears to change with different observational viewpoints?

MylesO, I have had a look at the refences you posted but there does not seem much to see in the stills or the video. Finding some images with good resolution would probably help.

In my study of the stones at Avebury, I have been able to determine that the neolithic artisans were very advanced in the application of their skills. They were able to construct a work of art which, when viewed from varying distances, produced a different picture to the viewer, just as though they were 'layering' one picture on top of another. In fact, there are so many 'layers' that more images will have to be posted to visually explain the phenomenon.

These works of art have stood the test of time (5000 years) and one can imagine that when they were first produced they must have appeared as a very impressive sight. I believe that each of the stones tells a visual story about who they, or their ancestors, were as well as giving future generations an indication of their appearance.

I can find no details published anywhere relating to the fine carvings or sculptured artwork on the stones at Avebury or Stonehenge.

Shown below is the full 1024 bversion of the three stones without any makings.

See if you can spot the 'layering'. Here's a clue.

You may find that a small carving or representation is an integral part of a larger carving which, may also form part of an even larger carving, hence the 'layering' phenomenon. If you download the image, try zooming right out as though you were viewing from a greater distance and take note of what happens.

Timewarp, you have a great eye for detail. What about the stonehenge in canada? Curious if there is anything to be found in there. Quick glance I don't see much.

Here is a breakdown of the fine sculpted carvings on the surface of the stones. I have highlighted many but there are many more to find if you care to look for them.

I have visited Avebury and have seen the carvings on these particular stones, so it is definitely not a case of pareidolia.

Do you notice anything special about some of the carvings?

I have have some emails concerning the content in the above image and also a request to provide a larger view. This particular view seems to have caused quite a stir in some anthropological circles.

Sorting through some images of Avebury I came across something that you may find of interest. The features became more recognizable after the image was resized from 1024 pixels to 400 pixels.

I have called this group of three sarsen stones, "The Avebury Aliens".

Could it possibly be that this is what the ancestors of the builders of Avebury and Stonehenge may have looked like?

Do you see any unusual shapes or recognizable forms in the image?

The type of stone material used for the sarsens seen in the images above at both Stonehenge and Avebury is sandstone.

Other types of stone were also used at Stonehenge, namely bluestone, which is thought to have come from the Preseli Mountains in West Wales, a distance of around two hundred miles (320km).

The stones at Avebury in Wiltshire, England are a neolithic picture gallery just waiting to be decoded.

Here is another early evening view of three stones with the Red Lion public house in the background.

I have placed rectangles around many of the features to make recognition of the features easier to observe.

If you're having problems recognizing the 'hidden' artistic treasures on the stone, maybe the image shown below will help.

These carvings and the setting in which they have been worked shows that the artisans of the time were capable of producing very sophisticated carved features. Many of the heads display a cranial protrusion and the only other place where carvings with this same cranial characteristic can be observed is in some of the images from Mars.

This leads to an interesting question. Is it possible that around 3000 BC Martians came to this planet to escape an impending catastrophe on their own planet?

Could this be the reason why the huge monuments such as Stonehenge and the Pyramids in Egypt were constructed by a people that had a vastly superior knowledge than the indigenous natives who were living on this planet?

We have to remember that many egyptian-looking artifacts have been discovered on Mars with some images displaying the same artistic characteristics as seen in these images posted here.

Here is a curious shape on one of the large stones at Avebury.

Whilst your looking see if you notice any other anthropological shapes on the stone.

As a diversion from Stonehenge, the images shown below are of one of the large stones that forms part of the stone circle at Avebury in Wiltshire, England. This circle of stones is not all that far from Stonehenge and is located close to the West Kennet longbarrow and Silbury Hill.

The second image shows some of the anthropological formations on the stone that are quite prominent. Many people visit this monument every year but they never see what is shown in the image below.

Do you see the features I have highlighted on the stones?

The artisans who carved the intricate features at Stonehenge were masters of their craft. Their artistic talent can also be seen on other monuments, such as the ring of stones at Avebury and the facing stones which form part of the West Kennet longbarrow. I have visited both of these sites to make an analysis and found that similar carvings with the same degree of sophistication do exist. 

The skills of the artists involved being able to integrate a face within a face and they were able to produce features that could influence the viewer into believing that a facial carving was looking in two different directions. Some of the carvings allow the viewer to determine how people dressed at the time.

I get the impression from what I have found at Stonehenge and other late neolithic sites that the people of the day were very civilized and had a high degree of intelligence, something the Britons of the time did not possess. This raises an important question. Did the builders of Stonehenge come from another world, such as Mars? Could it possibly be that Stonehenge is a Temple to their ancestors and their ancestral heritage? We know from some of the images posted elsewhere on this forum that Martians are very art-orientated and facial representations form a dominant part of their culture.

Besides the stones presented here, there are many carvings on other monuments as well. It is possible that archaeologists have missed these particular features as they can only be viewed from a distant viewpoint.

Here is a view with some of the features highlighted with a rectangle.

Incidentally, I forgot to mention that I have visited the site and can confirm that the features do exist, but unfortunately cannot be realized when viewing close up. The carvings and other features can only be realized when viewing what is on the surface of the stones from a distance. More to follow....

Eaol, The image is an original but I suspect it was captured many years ago. There are plenty of interesting features to see on the stones.  To assist observation, I will post some more images with a rectangle placed around some of the interesting features.

Some of the carved artwork is really exquisite and can fool the mind into believing that there could possibly be more heads and faces which form part of the same feature. Some of the features are faint which is probably due to ageing but others are much more prominent.

I find that this image is of the type that the more it is viewed the more becomes apparent.

1)Do you see anything on the stones?

Sortof, but I really can't tell what I am looking at from this distance.

2)You may find that viewing a section at a time is helpful in recognizing the carvings.

Not helping much. I did happen to notice what may or may not be an intentional representation of a human head wearing a turban, haha, to the right.  Can you point this stuff out to me?

Shown below is a general view of Stonehenge which shows the major sarsen stones that form the outer ring.

Close inspection of the stones from a distant viewpoint reveals much more.

Do you see anything on the stones?

You may find that viewing a section at a time is helpful in recognizing the carvings.

I believe what can be seen is the original carved artwork which was crafted around the time the stones were erected 5000yrs ago. The figures appear to have human form, but there is something about some of the carvings that tends to indicate otherwise.
