“The Top 30″ (Article)

The Top 30

By Steven & Evan Strong

There is a recurring criticism and habitual narrowing of focus we seem to be battling, time after time we are attacked in isolation for our stance on one particular artefact or site to the exclusion of everything else, which regrettably also includes the context we bring to this global equation. Whether it be the Standing Stones, UFO/Whale site, Bambara glyphs, engraved compass or whatever topic is under investigation, the complaints are invariably insular and restricted to one target. Their spiralling logic demands that if our interpretations are mistaken over one point of dispute, then everything we have done and researched is damned by association through a human error at one location.

We do not claim infallibility, and undoubtedly will continue to stumble and revise, but what is lost in the clamour and hostility is that even if in one instance our understanding of the significance of the site/artefact is mistaken, it lessens our chances of being right in our quest to put together a ‘big picture’ by no more than 3.3%. In fact, of the thirty sites we are summarising that all contradict at least one elemental cog in the mainstream account of ancient history or human evolution, we actually only have to prove one to be correct, a measly 3.3% success rate, to vindicate our belief that a drastic rewrite is in order. That’s just one tick out of thirty needed to earn a revision, whereas our critics have to disprove all thirty sites/relics are not as we claim, but subject to normal rules and natural regimes.
Capture 2Hypothetically, let us assume that of these thirty entrants and those waiting in reserve if there is a scratching, all bar the compass engraving is found to be empirically wanting, it makes no difference as that of its own is sufficient. Here we have absolute evidence of a technology which an academic who saw the engraving assures us cannot be applied in the field yet, and more the point it was functioning thousands of years before it should first appear anywhere on this planet. That one remaining site being accorded a tick of approval of itself rewrites so much of the historical past of this country and does not need a seconder, as the point is already made. The same rules apply for nearly every entry that was selected for our Top 30. Almost every site or artefact chosen on its own is an archaeological anomaly of the highest order, and if multiplied by a factor of 30, 20 or even a 50% success rate where 15 sites/artefacts gain approval, whatever is left over culminates in an imposing array of inconvenient questions and empty pages.

Each site/artefact/source has been discussed in earlier articles, and as such this summary will not be a justification of why, but an explanation of what, supplemented by our personal ranking. The evidence and research already exists, today our job is to broaden our brush and present a selection of 30 pieces of archaeology we have seen, investigated and found to be worthy of inclusion in our first selection. We have listed them subjectively in order of what we believe is their importance and ability to rewrite sections of Australian and global pre-history. The greater the potential impact, the higher the ranking.

1. Original Elders, Spokespeople and Custodians. Before, during and after, while researching Original sites and archaeology such people must be consulted, that is non-negotiable. In that respect we thank the following Original people, and many others not mentioned. Deepest respect and thanks is given to Aunty Beve S., Karno Walker, Minnie Mace, David Fitzgerald, Scott Sentence, Gerry B., Bill Neidjie, Millie Boyd, David Uniapon, Tom French, Darryl French, Eddie McPhee, Darren McElroy and Reuben Kelly.

2. Ros’ Rock. Dated well into five figures and found over a metre below the surface, this extremely hard chert rock has been polished and artificially in-filled twice, exhibits four different widths of deep incisions/ engravings requiring a metal blade of incredible hardness, and just as it was with the polishing, it was also engraved at two different times. The technology required by our standards is extremely modern, but the artefact is by any standards very ancient and Australian. What it means is a work in motion, but what can be stated with certainty is that there are over 200 lines, points of intersections, shapes and peckings on this rock. Researchers working in co-operation with us feel confident that at least one side is a map, we suspect that there is a narrative on another, past that it gets difficult.

3. Standing Stones. Thousands of cubic metres of exotic fill along with hundreds of shaped sandstone rocks (which is also not part of the local geology), are elements within a set of constructions/mounds/rock engravings/arrangements that go together in making the very first language spoken and recorded in the world. But there is so much more, this arrangement, along with the shapes and markings on each rock are elements of the First Language, according to the ex-President of the Australian Archaeological Society (Frederic Slater), what was positioned, carved and marked constitutes all knowledge of “what is, what was and what will be.”
4. “Long Before True.” These two ancient stone carvings from Papua New Guinea have just come to our notice and seem quite sensational in so many ways. The technology on show is so refined and needing very hard steel blades and the hands of a skilled mason. It was kept by Highland Elders and known to be extremely ancient from a time “long before true,” yet found in a land where every form of forged or melted metal was unknown until two centuries ago. Unlike the local people, the facial features are fine with a narrow nose, almond eyes, thin lips and an extremely elongated neck. No hominid past or present whether sapien, erectus or Neanderthal displays any similarities to this being, but if prepared to look further afield into the distant skies, the stereotypical image of a Grey Alien is hard to dismiss.

5. Adam’s Garden. The feeder and access point from the ocean to the Standing Stones site, there are tens of thousands of rocks of all persuasions, of which many were artificially shaped and marked. There is a 9 metre by 5 metre jetty made exclusively of sandstone and dozens of rock arrangements, some involving the movement of rocks weighing no less than 700 kilograms. As with the Standing Stones site, none of the shaped or marked rocks show evidence of a percussion point or chisel mark. One shaped rock recovered has an edge still capable of cutting skin and drawing blood.

6. Ros’ Rock (number two). As with the more important rock, this also seems at first glance to be chert and shows ample evidence of the same technological sophistication at play on Ros’ Rock. There are different markings and some similar, the most dramatic variation is a very prominent engraving of what seems to be the letter A. The rock was found close to the Standing Stones site, of which the letter A is the first of 16 letters in the first Original alphabet.

7. Tracy’s Tablet. A spectacular Egyptian Tablet with close to 300 hieroglyphs, it has a carving of a three dimensional ankh that takes centre stage, three sarcophagi and Isis and Osiris seated. There is another Egyptian tablet, the Stela of Senebef which is seemingly identical. It is claimed to be a funerary dedication, we are not as convinced and believe both tablets, the one stored in Vienna and the other in Australia commemorate a formal agreement consenting to Egyptian presence in Australia. There is also very strong evidence that this tablet was seen and hidden within the first decade of the British Invasion.

2014-03-23 09.30.498. Trina’s Complex/Shrine. An amazing example of complex technology ramped up another level. A forty metre stretch of rectangular blocks, in some cases five blocks high, many weighing hundreds of kilograms were cut, shaped and stacked. Of special interest is a 4 metre by 4 metre cube rock of granite and quartz that we estimate to weigh about 10 tonnes, the faces are sheer and we believe that the rock was placed onto a rock platform overlooking a creek. Another flat and extremely smooth sheet of granite measuring 6 metres by 3 metres by 10 centimetres was cut and inserted between two stands of granite. This is the hardest rock we have seen cut and worked, and the blades needed require a hardness of metal and sharpness of edge that only professionals could access today.

9. The Compass Site. On a remote rock platform there is an engraved eight armed compass, with three arms partially damaged by bulldozer tracks. Each arm radiates off the central circle at 45 degrees, thus creating equally divided set of arms all of which are ‘gun-barrel straight.’ Every line whether straight or a part of a perfectly engraved circle has no deviation from the entire engraving, and is exactly the same in width and depth. It is as if this compass was cut by a machine, so uniform is every line in every way. In what only adds to the intrigue, the longest line pointing north is 15 degrees to the east. Apart from the existence of technology an expert conceded this cannot be taken out of the laboratory yet, the question immediately arises as to when the earth was last aligned at that setting?

10. The Healing Table. This site is a contradiction as it seems to be totally lacking in science, which alone under our criteria should negate its inclusion. However, it is the sheer volume of women who I have personally seen lay inside the table and the universality of powerful reactions, often life-changing, that leaves us no other choice. A women’s portal, a place where women can heal both physically and spiritually, we have no actual proof, but I have seen the expressions of awe and bliss on the women’s faces upon returning, and that alone demands a permanent listing in the top 10.

11. Gympie Healing Table/Pyramid. We were reluctant to visit this site and did so at Graham Hancock’s prompting, what we saw certainly exceeded our expectations. Two sedimentary rocks both exhibiting the most unusual reactions to a magnet, which cannot be natural, caught our attention. A statue found on site, rock walls Graham likened to Machu Picchu and rocks with sharp 90 degree edges changed our opinion dramatically. But the talk of healing almost terminal patients literally dragging themselves up the hill and running down after contact with two flat rocks near the crest, went on for at least half an hour. Something is definitely stirring here, it is a sacred place and should not be approached without seeking Original permission. That is not negotiable.

12. Metal Jewellery. Original Elder Aunty Minnie Mace found this object, and what is possibly an ancient bone, between the walls of the Bambara hieroglyphs in the 1990’s. Heavily encased in debris and dirt, it took some time to clean and was worn by her granddaughters as a necklace until the circular clasp that held the chain broke. Extremely light and non-magnetic it has been suggested by people with knowledge in metals that it could be aluminium.

13. A Human Bone? Is this the bone of Nefer-Ti-Ru, the son of the Pharaoh that some claim was buried near the Bambara glyphs? We took the bone Aunty Minnie Mace found to the Head of the Fractures Unit at the local base hospital explaining the situation, timing and possible Egyptian presence. He made note of the darkening discolouration and noticeable lightness of the bone, but prefaced his diagnosis with an unfamiliarity. All his patients are living, some old, but none thousands of years in age. Nevertheless, he did suggest it was an “ancient bone” and quite likely part of the “femur bone.” In an attempt to add more certainty and rigour he recommended a higher authority to consult, the local base hospital cat scan. Phone calls were made on our behalf and the laboratory and machinery were closed to public access from 9-10 am the next Monday morning. Six times the normal dosage, the men and women in white coats spent five minutes in earnest discussion before handing me a disc and announcing that whatever they were examining had the “same density as a human bone.”

14. Star Markers/Star Charts. Within a 5 kilometre radius of the Bambara Glyphs we estimate there to be no less than 4,500 engraved star markers, and one rock platform alone has around 800 star markers. We are of the belief that this is the largest ancient star chart in the world. As to how ancient is still under consideration, but we do know that the closest star chart to the Bambara glyphs was charted then dated by software from Sydney University to be over 4,600 years old. These star markers, as many as they are, are but one small part of an Original mantra that is all-pervading and consistent throughout the continent, ‘as on top, so below.’

24) Collasped Ancient Tunnel15. Klaus’ Walls. Through Klaus Dona’s assistance, photographs and specific bearings we were directed to an amazing yet dangerous site to access a place that contained three sets of walls near an entrance that led on to a collapsed tunnel. The walls have a style, tightness of joinery and weight of individual blocks that is reminiscent of ancient South American stonework. The joins of these blocks are so tight and fine it would be difficult for a cigarette paper to penetrate. The three walls lead into a collapsed tunnel, and each has a base stone that spans the entire length and measures in height 189 cms, 189 cms and 190 cms. This is not nature’s work, but through the application of human hands, technology and ingenuity.

16. The Egyptian Theme in Original Engravings. Our first involvement in the general Gosford/Blue Mountains/Sydney area, from an archaeological viewpoint, took place when invited onto country by Angel John Gallard (ex-Senior Park Ranger, Brisbane Waters). Our initial point of introduction was an engraving of an ankh. It was so old and worn it took close to 20 photos to get something defined, and according to our guide was at least 10,000 years old. Two engravings, one in the same area of Thoth in profile with an ibis head, maintain a theme that extends into another engraving of Thoth with an Egyptian headdress and ape-like features. An ibis-headed man and close to an exact replica in stance and pose of the Egyptian God of Inheritance, left us strongly pre-disposed towards any suggestions of ancient Egyptian presence here and all over Australia.

17. The 10 Metre Shaft. There are actually three shafts at Bambara, all of which we believe to be artificial, but in this case our focus is upon the largest tunnel which is 10 metres in length. The two straight sides that run parallel, everything is too straight and full of ninety degree angles and can be reached once descending to a 2 metre drop that also looks very unnatural. Officials and the body in charge of parks (NPWS) do not contend it is natural and claim it to be a mischievous prank orchestrated by “vandals.” Deposited kilometres from any residence when this supposed hoax occurred, it is without a tag, name, idle boast of responsibility, and in what is a recommendation of the level of care exhibited without financial incentive, these vandals not only excavated but then removed tonnes of waste so as to keep the place and their superb hidden construction pleasing to the eye. The tunnel is ancient and possibly built to accommodate the body of the son of a Pharaoh.

18. The Bambara Hieroglyphs. The collateral damage and subterfuge involved in this site is without precedent. There is so much animosity and official procrastination at the very best, and much worse at play. The three sandstone walls have close to 300 hieroglyphs engraved into the surface. The glyphs on the walls have been decried as a fake by official channels through the deeds of a ‘deranged Yugoslav,’ anonymous university students, a grieving World War 1 veteran, hippies and anyone else that may suit on any given day. These excuses are lies, Original testimonies have made it clear the Egyptians were here and present at many other places. Recent research by the Khemit School Egyptologists focused on segments of the text and made a very compelling case through examples of sophistication of grammar and sequencing of text rarely known. Such knowledge is well above the skills and pay scale of any accepted hoaxer. As to what the hieroglyphs mean in their entirety is still undecided, we are of the opinion there is both an ancient Egyptian style evident and also a much older Original writing, others see it as one entire ancient Egyptian narrative.

19. The Old Ruins. In many respects this site is no less spectacular, even more so in setting and surrounds, than the Bambara Glyphs, but is the exact opposite in background critics and publicity. Nothing is known, one article was written and nothing was raised in objection or awareness. A remote and exposed site subject to extremes in weather and blessed with the most infertile soil in the land, outside Death Valley it would appear to be the last outpost in the planet to attract human interest. Despite the dire circumstances there is a bounty of archaeology, a rock path, half a dozen sections of large gutter/channel which is big enough to sit inside and perfectly aligned with both edges measuring 68 millimetres, a huge array of pieces of rock laid out in circular rings along with other remains that do not look natural. No bird, insect or animal was sighted when on site on either occasion and some of our party fell quite ill with the same symptoms. We believe it is ‘sickness country’ and that an explosion of massive force and heat destroyed the settlement, and this accounts for all manner of what we all called ‘melted rocks.’

IMAG007920. Adam’s Rocks. One rock in particular, from a collection of Adam Pippin’s, has always held our and many New Zealand academics keen interest from first sighting. I took three enlarged photographs of the 8 cm x 4 cm three dimensional engraving of two beings fighting to the Head Professor at Otago University, Head Curator Wellington Museum, sundry experts from NZ historical and cultural groups to examine and advise upon, and came up empty every time. It looks so ‘Maori’ with tongues protruding and similar motifs and all the experts agreed with that take, but made it clear it was too intricate, sophisticated, three dimensional and unlike anything they had seen. What only added to their bewilderment was not only the refinement of tools needed and skilled hand required, but that it was found two metres beneath the surface of an exposed sand dune after a cyclone hit a beach near Byron Bay (New South Wales).

21. Bulgandry. Grossly misunderstood and misrepresented by officials and those assigned to protect this site (NPWS), it is not a series of separate engravings as signposted, but one interrelated sublime narrative inspired by the oft-repeated Original mantra, ‘as on top so below.’ We suspect that the twelve figure/figures represent the twelve constellations. All engravings seem to revolve around a central figure which may be either sperm or a snake. Six are land-based, the other half water-based and are clustered in opposite halves of the circle. In what only highlights the celestial theme, the 8 metre canoe, according to Aunty Beve S. and Gavi Duncan represent a space craft navigating through the Milky Way while in passage to the Earth.

22. The Snowy Mountains Astronomical Walls. Two rock constructions of staggering proportions, both of which have astronomical purposes, illustrate a real obsession with the night time sky. The smaller wall runs a hundred odd metres down a slope into Lake Jindabyne and continues into the water until visibility is lost. At around 15,000 rocks, we are assured its main function is to mark out the alignment of the five major planets. It may also have ceremonial roles as we now know that the five planets can also represent the five levels of initiation. The second set of walls, is at least three times larger in the number of rocks used, but the technical aspects are far more challenging, as one section of a wall is found on a slope I chose not to walk upon because it is too steep. Across the creek the wall continues rising up a slope of close to 70 degrees. The volume of rocks, severity of slope and incredible amount of labour and time devoted to the skies yet again, is massive.

23. The Ocean-going Boat. Found within 200 metres from the ocean on a small rock platform, this carving has sometimes been mistaken as a boomerang. If so it is the least aero-dynamic boomerang ever made or depicted, never before has a boomerang been centred as the focus and only object in Original art, especially one as badly made as this. The slope on the bow and stern is quite pronounced and high and the boat has a deep draught and seemingly designed to cope with the waves and winds found on the open sea. Such a design is difficult to produce and utterly useless on still waters and if keeping close to the coast in fine weather. Not only is the shape suitable for crossing the ocean, there is a thin object at the front that was used as a fixed navigational tool when mapping their voyage through use of the stars.

24. The Cave of the Golden Boomerang. When first sighting this cave and the 25 metre by 4 metre gallery inside we were assured that we were the seventh and eighth people to see this remarkable piece of ancient art. Incredibly representational and larger than life-sized, that alone is an artistic trait supposedly absent from the continent. The curvature of hip, calf muscle is evident as is the female form of two of the five major agents, but so detailed is this portrayal the heel bone and each finger was part of the original design. It is at least 5,000 years old, as evidenced by the appearance of the Tasmanian Tiger on the wall, but what is most intriguing in this narrative of the beginning of humanity is the leading symbol that introduces genesis: the Pleiades.

25. Ganga Maya. Outside the Mungo Man site, this is claimed by mainstream academics to be the oldest site in Australia showing evidence of human occupation. Dated at 47,500 years in the Pilbara and a hundred kilometres from the coast, this is an extremely uncomfortable state of timing and geography. It was assumed that when Australia was first populated by adventurous African fishermen and women up to 60,000 years ago, they gradually spread along the coast, then slowly made their way up major river systems. As time passed the less agreeable situations were settled finally leading on to the least hospitable climes, the last of which being the Pilbara region. This was assumed to happen at the earliest 30,000 years ago, not 20,000 years earlier, and this timing challenges fundamental notions that underpin the Out-of-Africa theory.

26. The Four Spacemen with “Hats.” A massive gallery of about 10 figures, there is a set of four beings measuring between 1.5 to 2 metres, none have necks and seem to be wearing some form of garment looking like space-suits. We asked Aunty Beve about this no-neck characteristic, which is not only present here but throughout the region, she thought back to her time as a child seated on the shoulders of Elders listening to their stories. She explained the absence of neck as being due to a “hat.” If seeking the nearest equivalent to a space helmet that covers the neck it is fair to claim “hat” is a very good alternative.

27. The Notorious UFO/Whale Engraving. As discussed in an earlier article, there is a convincing case to be made through comparative mathematics that this is an engraving of a space-ship. However, there has been some dispute over what this engraving means and Aunty Beve was informed by someone she trusts it is indeed a whale. However, Original Elders Gerry B. and David Uniapon supported by Aunty Minnie Mace, claim not only this intricate engraving of a whale but every like engraving of these huge aquatic mammals are actually “Star Fish.” According to Gerry B. (this Elder is recently deceased and full names cannot be given) all these star fish came “from the Pleiades.”

28. Buragurra/Devil’s Rock. Both the only paper written on this site and most certainly the engravings and subject matter, ask questions that relate directly to ‘as on top so below,’ which nearly all commentators are unable or unwilling to confront. According to the paper written on this site in 1939 by Frederic Slater and James Goddard, after Biaime and the Sky heroes landed at Mount Yango this platform was where the next step was taken. Biamie means “to cut off one leg” thus being able “to build humanity.” He flew down from the sky, as did his wife Mulla Mulla, “who was not born of the Earth.” So continues the connection with the stars in the paper compiled through assistance of an interpretation of the First Language. What is particularly revealing is the decision of one of Biamie’s off-spring, who is referred to as the “nameless one.” He felt no desire to stay and boarded “a tree with branches that mingled with the clouds,” once launching fire and smoke was seen in the exhaust and its destination is marked by the “Southern Cross” constellation. In what adds to the possibilities, there is one engraving there that is either of a being wearing a space-suit or a serial killer of innocent Original men and women.

mimi29. Gosford/Blue Mountains Merging of Regional Art Styles. This happens nowhere else in the continent. Within this region we have seen so many supposedly clear and distinct regional styles spread across Australia which were thought to be unique to certain tribal estates. Of that spread of styles at the present stage includes Wandjinas, Mimi Art, Lightning Brothers, Papunya, Panaramitee, Tasmanian geometric shapes, Bradshaw (representational) Art, X-Ray and in what only adds to the diversity in techniques ochre, charcoal, pecking and engraving are all part of the local artistic archaeology. It would seem such an accumulation of diverse ways of artistic expression in one location runs counter to so many aspects of Original Lore, unless something happened here first that saw a massive increase in population (a theme often addressed by Aunty Beve) and the need spread out to further places.

30. A Choice in Four. This was the most difficult choice of all with so many still on the bench awaiting the call. Without doubt what Badger Bloomfield has invited us to inspect on site and at his workshop in New Zealand is so sensational it rewrites so much of New Zealand pre-history and confirms the existence of an ancient civilisation spread all around the Pacific Ocean Rim. Badger’s collection of intricate stonework is a huge incentive to ‘cross the ditch.’ We are sure once making a personal inspection this site will climb up the ladder and warrant inclusion in the Top 10. The ‘Valley of the Faces’ complete with what appears to be Ogham script and a series of carved faces of which one is very compelling, another strong possibility, some ancient engravings at Devonport Headland which Elder Tinker Gowan claims to be of six figures in date of creation is a site worthy of inclusion, as is some possible Egyptian pottery and many others. However, inspired by our ‘big picture’ approach we have decided to forgo all archaeology in preference to a set of handwritten notes penned by Frederic Slater (President of the Australian Archaeological, Education and Research Society of Australia) in 1939. Apart from acknowledging the beginning of all civilisations and humanity taking place in Australia, the homage and veneration offered by ancient Egyptians when in pilgrimage to Australia, providing the only commentary and translation of the Original First Language, throughout and often we suspect unknowingly, Slater makes reference to travel from the stars. He is candid in stating that the Sky-heroes “came to Earth from alight far off.” His personal letters and notes and the only surviving published co-authored paper provide invaluable background setting, and in the spirit of seeking out the ‘big picture’ and its relationship to ‘as on top so below,’ is a fitting final selection.

Summing Up

There are many other sites/artefacts that just missed the cut, others we are still unsure of or not fully convinced. As stated in our introduction, all we need is any score above one out of thirty to succeed, our critics can score nothing less than demonstrating all 30 entries are incorrect. We believe we passed their tests with distinction and most of the crew is intact.

The problem is the sites and archaeology found at the behest of and the under guidance of Original Custodians trying to share these truths and enlightenment, are not being listened to or sought out. There is a big picture developing of a society without equal living in harmony with the land and Spirits within. That we already knew. The evidence of earlier civilisations, well before ancient Egypt, that were our technological equals and of energy sources still not understood, is all a work in progress. But again whichever direction our research takes, we are on our own as it seems academia and mainstream spokespeople are steadfast in their inertia and denial of Original common-sense.

“Long Before True:” The Story that can’t Wait to be Told (Article)

“Long Before True:” the Story that can’t wait to be told

By Steven & Evan Strong

Surely no-one but us would even consider writing anything yet on the intriguing possibilities associated with two ancient stone carvings. Outside scribbling together a few preliminary notes and rough set of questions to ask when first meeting Kate and her brother, and perhaps it is permissible to throw in a few reminders on features to examine once actually sighting the two artefacts we have only seen photographs of, it would be extremely unwise and hasty in the extreme to publish one solitary sentence on these artefacts. Knowing that within days of this articles’ publication I will be talking to Kate and her brother with the artefact in my hand, the need to pause and reflect until gathering more information seems mandatory.

The problem is, after speaking to Kate on the phone and hearing of the motivations and adventures of her parents in PNG in the early 70’s, I was struck by one overriding imperative. These startling artefacts create a truth that has already been hidden for way too long. What they were given by the PNG Highland Elders is so sensational and radical, and we have no doubt that they were deemed the best candidates to pass on these two artefacts. Past that historic moment of cross-cultural trust all Kate’s parents have endured has been decades of frustration and official red tape. That indignity and indifference demands to be redressed, and as soon as possible. The revealing of these two artefacts to non-initiated peoples from another land and what followed was well before its time, then, but not now. The timing is perfect and despite the inherent shortcomings and speed, a brief introduction is in order and consistent with our approach, which will be a partial scientific report of the early state of affairs written as one would in a diary.

So, armed with two contacts through face book, the same number via email (one with an attachment of five photographs), fourty minutes on the phone with no face to face or face to rock contact, we shall step into the breach totally reliant on the integrity and honesty of a lady we have never personally met.

Now deposited well outside any academic safety zone, that’s the difficult part of this preliminary assignment done, from now on it gets easy. From this point the article is primarily a summary of Emails, conversations on the phone supplemented by our first reactions to the five photographs sent. Even with the prospect of more details to follow once sighting the hand-written notes and speaking to a witness present at the handing-over of this amazing set of artefacts, there is still enough available at first glance to provide a simple narrative of how these artefacts appeared and what happened over the following decades.

The Story Begins…

Beginning in the early 60’s, Kate’s father was acting in a managerial capacity in an airline service, as were nearly all Australians working in PNG supervising or overseeing the local population in some capacity. He and his wife were so different from the normal crop of Aussie expats who were normally condescending and insular in their dealings with the local people. They learnt Pidgin English so they could communicate on an equal footing and often went for recreational strolls to different villages and were held in very high respect. Kate’s father was lauded as an “old gentleman” and a “decent man.” His wife was a step above that, for she was responsible for most of their outdoor expeditions, and in particular it was at her prompting they embarked on a long and arduous journey into the Highlands that led to these two artefacts being shared.

I’m still not sure, and will not be until meeting Kate and her older brother, whether the artefacts were given with or without the exchange of money. These and many other details of the seminal day over 40 years ago are essential details which are fortunately not lost. Kate was in attendance at this meeting, but being five her recollection is strong but not perfect, whereas, her brother was ten at the time and remembers much more. That first-hand account which we will film, along with the hand-written notes start to bolster the rigour and credentials of the two carvings. Originally, we felt that due to the passing of many decades and our unawareness of the existence of a living and breathing witness who was part of the occasion and emotions of that day, establishing a supporting empirical base was assumed to be the artefact’s crucial academic weakness and first line of attack for cynic and critic, not anymore.

What was known by both Kate and her brother, and of course their parents and Elders, was the incredible antiquity of these relics. She spoke of her parents many unsuccessful attempts to assign a time frame with the local Custodians, whether suggesting a sequence based on “Christmases,” or “grandfathers,” it was to no avail. These artefacts came from a time far more ancient, going all the way back to an epoch they call “long before true.” So far back, it pre-dates and dismisses all our historical misconceptions. So “ancient,” yet the technology needed to cut, shape and smooth such a hard rock is so utterly recent.

That is the main point of focus at present and the reason we have been so pre-emptive, whatever tools were used and by who and whom, none of this fits into any accepted account championing the gradual rise of human civilisations and sophisticated technology first appearing about 6,000 years ago. What can be stated with absolute certainty is that in spite of convention, these rocks are much older yet far more enigmatic and sublime.

Outside the obvious technological anomaly, the physical features displayed on the face is unlike that of any Indigenous person of PNG or Australia, of that observation there cannot be a dissenting voice. The problem is when scanning further afield, rummaging through the bones from all locations on the planet, past or present, hominid or sapien, there is no proto-type nor resemblance to any Earthly being on show.

The Elders who originally held these sacred objects are insistent it belongs to their tribal estate and comes from a time well back, yet the being sculpted has a narrow nose and facial structure with delicate lips and almond-like eyes. The masks and depictions of local people, whether carved or painted, are of a wide face, broad nose and big eyes, and no neck. And it is that neck which is no less of a contradiction as the face, it is so slender and is overly extended so much so that it looks anatomically incorrect. However, that diagnosis only applies if using Earthly standards of human physiology and existence.

Where Does it Come From?

Purely speculative and based upon no analysis of notes or witness, or even a fleeting glance of the artefacts, if we were to assume, compare and propose, we see three possibilities. This being is possibly another entry to the ever-increasing list of new hominids recently discovered, or the more obvious second set of options. The being carved is not from Earth, whether from another constellation or dimension is a moot point, but what is less open to question is the striking resemblance this statue has to the archetypal model of the ‘Grey Alien.’ The extended neck, almond eyes and fine features are so much a part of this model made popular by recent films, but what may not be known by many is that the receding forehead is also something quite prevalent in ancient Original times.

The noticeable receding sloping forehead of whatever this being is categorised as, is not without precedent in the continent of Sahul (ancient pre-8,000 years continent of Australia, PNG, Tasmania, Karta and surrounding islands). There are numerous examples of an extremely broad-faced robust boned Original individuals with such a pronounced sloping forehead living in Australia for a period of no less than 50,000 years, so that trait is not unique. But it actually is, because this trend towards a receding forehead is a distinctive robust feature alone. The gracile, finer-boned Original individuals have the same angle of forehead as all other Homo sapien sapiens, so this dramatic recession of the forehead can certainly occur, but only if in association with a wide face, thick bones, continuous eye-brow ridge and broader nose. If trying to identify a human connection for the face on this rock, there is no joy if relying on White-fella records and archaeology.

Nor was there any joy or encouragement ahead for Kate’s mother and father once leaving the shores of Papua-New Guinea with their cargo from the Highlands ready to tell a brand new Old story. At least that was their hope, approaches were made to all manner of esteemed institutions and representatives in the expectation the truth would be revealed. Early on they made personal contact with officials from the British Museum, who were rightly enthused by the importance of these objects and candid in their acknowledgement of its authenticity and antiquity. They were more than willing to accept these relics as a registered donation, but less than open when discussing future plans. Both Kate’s mother and father were of the opinion that these objects would be consigned to a box never to see the light of day or gaze of the public eye. Fortunately they declined the offer to file and forget and sought out many other avenues. Regrettably as it is predictable, on every approach they were frustrated, red-taped and frowned upon for being so unsettling and inquisitive.

With no authority, expert or spokesperson willing to listen or pay attention, the decades that passed brought them no resolution, just a lingering sense of impotence with an overwhelming sense of ‘stupid White-fella.’ It is time to put this injustice right, as we are now doing and will continue in our pursuit with further research and conversation.

Photo taken by Kate Nisbet

Averting our gaze away from the alien-like statue, the carving of a bird seems far less imposing, but from the very first time it was seen I kept coming back to a comparison to a similar ancient Egyptian carving of a bird that many have claimed has the aerodynamic properties of a machine that can fly. Kate has assured me there are many gentle slopes not shown in the photograph and all of this put together requires careful measurements of length and angles when examining the artefact next week.

Put all this together and we have the foundation of something amazing than can only get better with the adition of hand-written notes of the parents, interviews with both siblings and an inspection of the artefacts will add so much more to this story, but as things stand sight unseen there is already one undeniable certainty that cannot be denied. The two carvings are extremely old, but the technology applied is extremely new. That is the agreed starting point. Anything and everything past that truth strays into unchartered waters.

Is it an engraving of an Alien, cross-dimensional traveller or unknown hominid? All we can assign are degrees of possibility. What of the associated stories and oral accounts the Custodians knew of, was that shared, recorded on paper or heard and remembered? Can we put a figure in years, albeit ever so theoretical, to “long before true?” What was the genetic relationship between these ancient beings to the present-day occupants of PNG? Is it just bird or the proto-type of a plane? With measurements taken and angles recorded that is the one immediate question that can be determined. However, we are not so sure that even if it does contain aerodynamic properties and a future blue-print, seeking out the reason why it was found in remote highlands rainforest of PNG and its connection to the mini-statue of the being with the long neck and narrow face, will be as easy to identify.

Let’s Start Again

We will make an invitation to some mainstream channels to examine, inspect, report and share. We did so before when inviting them to a presentation in Sydney which included the ‘unveiling’ of Ros’ Rock and Tracy’s Tablet. No extra effort in delivery or advocacy will be made, but as before this article will be sent through the general enquiries avenue of four organisations, and no doubt the same indifference or antagonism will be forthcoming. Irrespective of whatever form of apathy or hostility ensues, we fully expect they will be derelict in their duty to inform the public of the truth.

As has been the case so many times, there are only two alternatives on offer in this equation, no more, no less. Kate’s parents, brother and Kate are lying. Maybe the Elders were lying while playing a prank and they put on a show for the gullible white-fellas trading some tourist trinkets for some cash in hand, or maybe we made the whole thing up and we alone are the culprits? Whoever and wherever, someone or a group has to be lying. For the sake of maintaining historical order and manipulating public compliance, a lie has been told and the two pieces of stone were cut and shaped in recent times.

But what if? What if everyone, all the way down the chain of command, was telling the truth? Does that mean that thousands and thousands of years before humanity is supposed to have first congregated together which led on to the emergence of towns, warfare, cities, the plough, money, warfare, the division of labour and gender and the invasion of another’s land, unknown beings/hominids were present and accounted for in Sahul using technology that is advanced by today’s standards. If this is true, and as long as the ‘conga-line’ of first, second and third-hand witnesses are reliable, what are we to make of the accepted versions of ancient history and human development?

The answer is very little through to a lot less, their accounts are in error in timing and participants, and these stone carvings prove that there were earlier civilisations on this planet and the technology invented and applied was no less than our equal. That is a huge call to make based as it is on the image of a being and bird never touched, but what else is on offer?

That’s why this article was written in haste and hope, simply because if the truth has been told then questions like who we are, what happened in the past, where did we come from and who are our creators have to be reconsidered anew. Only this time there is a player in the game-plan that isn’t playing by our rules, the Elders knew full well what they were giving, to whom it was given and that these sacred relics would have their day. That day begins now.

“Girls and Boys with Toys” (Article)

Girls and Boys with Toys

By Steven & Evan Strong

Of all the excursions into country we have undertaken, this has to be the one of which we held the least expectations. The main reason it came about was simply to try out an unusual lens-attachment. Every other apparatus used or experiment conducted during this day evolved out of our attempts to find what may be revealed by a set of lens that detect activity outside the range of the eye.

A valued colleague who has been an essential part of journey, Richard Clarke, had spoken to us about these lens and the results he obtained at Stonehenge and other sacred pagan sites. What Richard had photographed was indeed spectacular and decidedly etheric, and that of itself was sufficient motivation to spend a day in the bush ‘playing with toys’ and see what eventuated.

Our selection of four sites, and there were other candidates, was predicated around a recurring phenomenon/truth: so many of these sites are positioned on lines of energy. And that description is woefully short of the mark, trying to put into words a reaction or force that is always different, palpable, yet without measurement, is a task restricted by our limitations. We observed different reactions to a variety of devices that has no commonality or predictability in what is actually occurring. All we feel we can be certain of is that something seems to be ‘stirring beneath the surface’ that isn’t part of the normal way of seeing things.

Of course, for many sceptics our next claim, that we intend to bring a degree of scientific rigour and methodology to our day of seeking signs of Divine, is inherently contradictory because real science and the paranormal can never co-exist. That is one point of view and we have another, which we will develop throughout this article. In our attempt to breach that divide, we have called upon the assistance of technology that spans the ages, gathering together ‘six tools of the esoteric trade’ to assist in our endeavours. Richard’s full set of lens, two cameras, one set of dowsing rods, a crystal ‘swing,’ magnet, compass and one other device was the sum total of the equipment used during the day in research.

After being ‘smoked,’ the group of ten began the morning by making our way towards the Bambara hieroglyphs. At our suggestion, we felt the time spent with devices at the ready between the three engraved walls and beside the ‘healing table,’ could be a productive way to set off proceedings. We were no less than five minutes from the glyphs when a welcome return to our routine made an appearance. ‘Bird sign’ when going on to country is almost always guaranteed, but nonetheless gratefully accepted. Even more so, when three large black cockatoos were perched on a branch that overhung the track, and remained stationed until all of us had passed underneath.

They flew off, never to be seen by us until we returned after our time in this country was completed around mid-day. There they were, the same three perched above the track, we can’t prove this, but just know they were sitting on the branch giving their approval and bidding us farewell.

A Gift from the Grandmother Tree

2014-09-29 10.27.53Back to the next part of our journey, an obligatory meeting with the Grandmother Tree. It is the biggest and most majestic angophora tree we have ever seen, and is so much more. It is expected that each person make skin to bark contact with the tree, this is customary and a sign of respect, and in our case a mandatory act of reverence that permits moving closer to the walls. And that was it. The expectation was that once connection and affirmation between person and tree had taken place, it was onward and upward. Once settled at the walls and table we would pull out our ‘box-of-tricks’ then see what happens, well that was the plan.

Before continuing in this report we must confess that we originally held no interest in dowsing rods. Never been on our radar. The reason for our avoidance is that at initial glance, there is just too much negative baggage. Until recently we had no reason to champion the credentials of dowsing rods and were reluctant to do so, but the problem is that the two times we have seen these rods in operation, they work, it is that simple. We really don’t take much stock in the opinion of other people or organisations who invest in the status quo, and when it comes to dowsing rods it looks like they are wrong again, because according to our score sheet before the day started, the rods were batting two from two.

Until Richard pulled out his dowsing rods and made his way up the slope near the Grandmother Tree I still saw no reason to change plans. Above, below or beside, it made no difference, both rods were locked on to one stationary point, the tree. We now had every reason to change plans. To say that the two rods pointed at the tree lessens the intensity of the process and demeanour of the person holding the rods. There was no mischief at play, what we saw was real and honest, we were witnessing an Original truth in the here and now.

What to do? How could we transform such a sublime interface onto paper replete with methodology, numbers, controls, tallies and results? It actually wasn’t that difficult to cobble together something reasonable, we already had enough test-subjects and it was my expectation that they would have been called to the crayfish with rods in hands later in the day. All we had to do was move everything forward a few hours.

With a plan formulated, I decided keep my distance and try to remain as detached as possible and asked seven others to repeat the process Richard initiated. In an attempt to set this off on a semi-identical footing, I asked Richard to lead off and repeat what he did barely five minutes earlier. As previously, the results and movement of metal was as powerful and continual, whether walking up or down slope the rods were securely locked on the same target, the Grandmother Tree.

Of the seven seconded to copy what Richard did, one volunteer was less than enthusiastic. Shane quietly objected. He told me that he felt an overwhelming sense of no, that this is not what he was here for and his role is no less important, but the Spirits had spoken and there would be no response in the rods if he participated. If we are genuinely researching the presence of the mystical, then that premonition of a ‘no-show,’ if correct, meant we now had a psychic control, with an expectation and affirmation that his motionless rods will confirm this denial from the Guardians of this site.

In total seven volunteers saw movement in their rods, but there were some variations in speed and possible contributing factors that need to be taken into account. First of which being that some were familiar with the rods and how they were used, while others were novices. Equally, although in general terms the reactions were always pointing to the tree, not two responses were exactly the same.

With Richard setting the pace, the seven others took their turns. Robyn and Gavin have used rods before, nevertheless, they got a reaction no less powerful than that of Richard’s. Evan, Tracy and Adam are novices to such devices, and although their rods were active it wasn’t with quite the same vigour. There was no difference in alignment in each attempt, although it did seem that both Evan and Tracy’s response was more ‘left-sided’ in direction and in the way the rods moved.

The Rods will not Rotate

There were six very positive interactions between person, rod and tree, but not so with the last two participants. Shane got exactly what he and we expected, the non-event was ‘spirit-sent.’ The rods never stirred, he held them loose and at the ready, but the copper conduits remained limp throughout.

Then there was Erlank, who scored of one out of two, the rods moved to right on his way down, but were still during the ascent. I wasn’t sure if he would get any reaction. He is not from Australia. We are not passing judgment or inferring that his non-residence makes him a less worthy sentient being, it is just that he is new to this country and the spirits of the land. The others in the group have been in the bush and sacred sites, know of the need to be smoked, whereas Erlank is a novice in such things. Time is needed to acclimatise and familiarise with Original protocol.

Now even more aware of the power and symbiotic exchange, Richard then tried to measure the range of the energy flow above and below the tree. Above the tree the rods snapped to attention forming an outer perimeter of 4.9 metres, while below its energy was still being detected 4.3 metres away. We could have persisted and asked each person to repeat what Richard did and average the results, but it would have achieved little, as the esoteric bona-fides of this sacred tree had been established well past our satisfaction.

Much more came out of this than predicted or planned, this was an auspicious beginning and what was to become the sentry-post from which all other research revolved. The day ahead was beginning to look far more positive, especially after the confirmation that, as Kakadu Elder Bill Neidjie reminded us so many times, “tree, same as me.”

To the Walls

Gosforg glyphNext stop, the three engraved sandstone walls. We did secretly entertain the notion that if any site would put on its etheric guise, this had to be the place. It had an extensive track record, the photograph supplied was taken some years ago to supposedly highlight some hieroglyphs on the largest wall failed in focus at one level. When the shutter opened no light was seen by the human eye, but the lens had a different focus. The white light spiralling out of the rock certainly seems to resemble a serpent-like form, which is very Original in setting.

The compass, crystal swing and magnet registered nothing, photographs were taken with and without the lens, and they showed very little. Despite the disappointing lack of reaction, all was not lost as it was always the rods that held the most attraction. When Richard pointed the copper towards the walls I sensed that something amazing was about to happen. Far from it, the rods were decidedly disinterested. No matter how many times Richard reset the dowsing rods towards the walls, they steadfastly refused the invitation to connect and spun back pointing directly at the Grandmother Tree.2014-09-29 11.04.02

That was the sum total of the meagre offerings from what we thought was to be our psychic ‘base-camp.’ There seemed no reason to stay, so onto the healing table, well to an extent. It is a women’s healing place, not for men, just women. We know of 15 women who have laid within, and all rose changed and charged in so many ways. There was one occasion when four women spent close to an hour out of male-sight in close contact with the table, when they finally came back it was my intention to ask what happened. Words just wouldn’t work, I could see in their eyes and deep within what each women experienced was beyond the fringe and with the spirits, it was not from the here and now. This is why we came again, to put some substance to what we all knew was true in every sense.

2014-07-17 14.29.02Not far away the men sat on the rock platform amongst a 4,650 year old engraved star-map, taking in the magnificent view and some early lunch. Richard took up a discreet post a little distance from the table, but closer than our rock platform. With two women (Robyn and Tracy) ready and willing, we needed one male to act as a second recorder using the camera with lens. We wanted one lens to be normal held by Tracy and the other treated, so that the full spectrum could be captured on film, the whole idea was to try and capture some ‘hard evidence’ as each woman laid inside the healing table.

Not long after we separated through gender, Richard came back and suggested that we all come over and look at what he had found. It was all a touch cryptic, and I could tell it would stay that way until we joined the women standing beside the healing table.

It was those notorious rods, they were doing it again. None of the men were prepared for this display, the women had not begun their meditation/contact and while they were getting ready Richard scanned the immediate area with the rods. After what transpired once the rods were set to the task at hand, the response was consistent and set in stone. About five metres from the healing table there is a fault/ridge that is slightly raised to a height of up to one centimetre, the rock is of same material on both sides, exactly the same coloured sandstone. Coming down from the table the rods remained crossed inwards resting against Richard’s body, but as soon as he stepped past that ridge they sprung free and pointed out. If he returned going up the slope, the rods began pointing forward until passing over the line in the rock, past that point they locked into the same closed position. In every instance all the way up and down the ridge-line the movement of rods was immediate and rapid, it had all the appearances of a very solid connection between rock and rods, and an affirmation that the area past that point was indeed a sacred women’s site of immense power.

If only we could find the means to validate as to what the rods were reacting. We have to be brutally honest, whatever performance the rods put on will not ‘cut the mustard’ with mainstream science, thinking, media and every other conservative channel. We needed more than our stunned expressions and a collective sense of awe. The camera, both with and without the lens, was always our preferred choice of apparatus. It was time to see whether there was a way filming the spirits stirring and a feminine portal awakening.

What we got from Tracy’s photographs was far better than we could have ever hoped for, it comes down to this, we are either deceitful in photo-shopping this photograph, or have real evidence of a power or energy literally appearing at one foot, then spreading as it shrouds Robyn’s body and soul. The vibrant colours and surge of energy was felt by Robyn, so much so, she described the presence of blue immediately after, while we could only confirm to this be true once the photograph was developed. The rods and cameras stood united in testifying to a mystical presence that resides within the land, but is willing to share with any prepared to listen and learn. And then there was the wisdom and sensations that accompanied the merging of the divide, but that is Robyn’s story …

We saw the shots soon after in the camera. Mission accomplished, and some, a slight hiccup with the walls, but a big recovery with the table and close precincts. In what only added to the esoteric tally Richard found that once outside the realm of the women’s energy, every position he stood at saw the rods point directly to the Grandmother Tree. We would never have picked that recurring destination as a remote possibility, but no matter where Richard was stationed the rods remained resolute in responding to the same source. Then again, nor did we expect to get such dramatic shots of the healing table in action.

Hunting for Crayfish, and see if we get a Bite

It was time to part company with our sampling of the table, walls and tree and sample the offerings of a puzzling entree some distance to the west, but still found within the same tribal boundary. This engraving has everyone stumped, and no-one expected another visit would ever solve the riddle of how, when, who or what. Of all the archaeology and sites seen, none makes less sense than this one and central to it is an amazing engraving that seems so new, has no resemblance to any Original tribal art-style and never will have a definitive conclusion.

The site was originally found through information and photographs supplied by Klaus Dona and has been visited by us quite a few times, another twenty will get us no closer to the truth. Nearby is a set of stacked rocks of considerable size with evidence of what seems to be mortar which we strongly suspect to be the remains of an ancient wall, but it is something much more recent that has always held centre-stage. This was the site where Sean first suggested we try something quite novel and never used before, dowsing rods. They spun on site, the movement filmed and throughout the many experiments it became apparent that the response of the dowsing rods was powerful, but seemed personalised when interacting with this rock. At different times, depending on person, mood and attitude, the responses varied noticeably.

2014-09-29 14.25.34Pivotal to all the goings-on is the intricate and delicately inscribed figure of a crayfish. So well executed is this engraving it can rightly be called a work of art, but is placed in an exceptionally remote and difficult to reach location in the bush. Behind a ledge that is so obscure I still can’t believe Sean found it, the first reaction upon sighting, that it is a fake, seems as sensible as it is ridiculous. Why bother, there is no tag, and no-one would ever stumble upon it unless wandering through the bush deliberately looking behind every nook and cranny. The person who did carve this figure was a mason of some ability. There is no purpose or sensible reason to engrave this, but it doesn’t look Original and seems to be very recent. Such a clean and concise line, of a colour creamier and lighter than the sandstone rock upon which it is engraved, everything about it says non-Original, except Aunty Beve’s ring.

Aunty Beve’s Crayfish Ring

It was on the second viewing of the video of this site when Aunty Beve finally remembered why the sight of this delicate engraving ‘rang a bell.’ The shape and lines of the engraving was an almost perfect replica of the ring she often wore. In what only multiplied the significance, that same crustacean, the crayfish, is the totem for her clan. Being the last full-descent Darkinooong woman, very few would know that this animal is the local totem and finding it posted here of all places, only added to the mystery.

The rods were called into the fray once again, this was the site where we had hoped to get both an extremely strong reaction and a great deal of variety of responses while using the same apparatus pointed at the same icon. Nine people, including myself, held the rods close to the crayfish and only two shared the same sequence, speed and paths taken. It seems difficult to conceive how we got the rods to move in so many different angles and rates of rotation, but that is what happened.

And then, in what only confirmed the previous rules of engagement, Erlank and Shane came up empty. It was a touch bizarre to observe how dramatic and forceful the movement of metal was for so many people, as opposed to nothing for two out of nine. But there was one difference this time, Shane’s crystal swing was absent in motion when between the walls, but here near the rock it was responding with vigour.

What was already known from a previous inspection is that with rods in hand, it didn’t matter whether standing next to the crayfish, 0.5 metres, I metre or even 3.1 metres away, the rods kept spinning with the same force and speed. But only if the person holding the rods was on song and synchronicity with the rock orchestrating events. What we got from this was dowsing rods in action, but were none the wiser. After closing proceedings at the crayfish, Richard dowsed the surrounding area and identified three ley-lines that all converge at the same rock.

What does it all mean? If merely a hoax, how did this vandal know exactly where this energy peaked, then engrave an animal that is the only appropriate Original totem of this site? Why engrave at a place no-one can see, find or admire? For what purpose was this done, what did this hoaxer personally gain from this act of hidden deception? But first and foremost, why does it look so unnatural yet so fresh?

We have nothing. Something is afoot, three metres out the rods spun, but which way? The individual relationship established between person, rod and rock seems to be forged through means we can only speculate. And so we shall. The only fragile possibility we can tender seems preposterous and is damned by association, because our tentative premise is founded upon a symbiotic exchange of energy between rock and person. Such is the massive outpouring of energy from this portal, it is internally self-repairing. What if this stunning carving is actually incredibly ancient, and that such is the magnitude of energy streaming out of one concentrated funnel-point, geology is no longer dominant as the Old Ways reign. Is it possible that the engraving of the sacred Original totem of this land is renewing and reinventing itself?

A Life-bomb? Surely not!

Granted, such a proposal is incredibly far-fetched, but I have been to this site more than once. It is a very long walk and well off the track, you could be 10 centimetres away and not even see the engraving, and here it is in all its glory in the middle of nowhere. But of course we did not mention the immediate neighbours, hundreds of Gymea Lilies. Spread all around rooted in sandstone, the plants are massive. At least three times bigger than any we had seen anywhere and the stems that held the flower-head were as thick as a tree saplings. All were agreed this was exceptional, the soil was rubbish but it seemed like the lilies had sprouted in compost. It was as if a life-bomb was dropped on this small stand of lilies, infertile soil and rocks and everything within was still vibrating to the explosion of pure life-force. Metal rods, human flesh, vegetable or rock, nothing could escape the embrace of …

Could it be that this mid-sized sandstone boulder can fertilise Gymea Lilies, spin dowsing rods and crystal swings and is marked out by an engraving without peer? We strongly suspect that there is some sort of energy or presence in attendance in the area. The convergence point is the engraved crayfish, which could be as young as yesterday or as old as the hills.

A Faux Conclusion

The only thing that can be guaranteed from our day of sampling the esoteric delights is that our initial reservation bordering on scepticism as we began our day, was overwhelmed by signs and events designed by the spirits of this land. Three cockatoos greeted and farewelled us, the cameras performed admirably and the rods spun all day long.

Yes the rods spun, but many will put that down to all manner of logical factors. Be it sweaty hands, deceit, an unconscious desire to curry favour or conform, the wind or prompted by the promise of some spare cash in the back pocket, there are plenty of rational explanations that can account for such a fanciful tale. But when it comes to the two photographs of Robyn laying in the healing table, we only have two feasible explanations. It was either photo-shopped or Spirit-shipped.

This authenticity of this entire exercise was always a matter of perspective. We were seeking to validate signs from the Divine, and to be honest failed miserably in our attempt. Did we succeed in presenting our scientific credentials? No way, we were not even close and never had a chance. The truth is this day wandering in the bush with toys at the ready was always an indulgence, perhaps it was also our mark of respect for the mystic part of the Original journey, but as an academic venture it was doomed to fail. The reason for our failure is simple, there are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

Disclaimer

Even though we are convinced what took place is more real than what people believe to be normal daily life, we are not endorsing or championing any of these findings in any public forum. Not because we resile from these esoteric activities, but because of the wealth of powerful archaeology and science we have amassed, we feel speaking on such matters will inflame prejudices and hinder the understandings gained through our solid empirical base. It allows our critics to focus on this decidedly mystical excursion across the divide to the detriment of all other parts of our research.

It is rather tragic we have to make such an equivocation, which is more an indictment on mainstream thinking and convention that an example of our intellectual cowardice. The real truth is that something happened, don’t know what it was, but we know one thing, it was real and present and looking the other way doesn’t work anymore.

P.S. Richard and Robyn recently returned to the site and have more to share. In our next segment on the esoteric history and presence, their photographs and experiences will be included.

“From the Beginning” (Article) By Steven & Evan Strong with Karno Walker (Ramindjeri Spokesperson)

From the Beginning

By Steven & Evan Strong with Karno Walker (Ramindjeri Spokesperson)

2014-07-24 15.54.10

Over the last two years we have racked up a tally of over half a century of articles addressing all manner of Original artefacts and issues, but never have we paused and taken stock of the increasing collection of archaeological anomalies and inconvenient science and placed them into context. Invariably we have reported and extended upon one part of something much bigger, and now is the time to apply some broad brush strokes in creating a ‘big-picture’ overview.

In fulfilling that brief, we must remain faithful to the Ramindjeri doctrine of Wirritjin (Black-fella, White-fella Dreaming) in providing an opening setting and sequence. When discussing the genesis of modern humanity there is no better source and authority than the Keepers of Old Ways. Their words on ancient Original matters is invariably the foundation upon which we conduct every aspect of our research.

The First Historians

There are some who may believe our reliance upon the integrity of Original history and Lore in preference to books and modern-day accounts is academically unsound. They will assure us that if relying solely upon the word of mouth as every oral history is based, such accounts can never be used as a primary source. The reality is that the reverse is actually the case. It is only in Australia, until Cook, where an absolute continuity in historical integrity prevailed uninterrupted. There existed from the beginning of the Dreaming a continental reality where the invasion of another estate is taboo, even walking onto the land of another tribal estate, whether with angry or peaceful intent, could never take place unless permission to enter had been given. Theft of sacred objects or anything found on another’s land could never happen as no tribal estate was ever invaded. The absence of army or vengeful neighbours stealing and plundering guaranteed an unparalleled authenticity in history, as no-one had the need to sanitise, justify or rewrite in any book no matter how well bound and presented. This means the narrative of the Original people and their land was constant and never under threat and as long as the truth is venerated as being sacrosanct, so too the history of Australia remains intact.

So to begin, when discussing the first appearance of modern people, we need to clear away the mistakes and clutter by first asking for Original guidance. Whether consulting ancient Dreaming stories or Elders and Custodians versed in the Old Ways, the song remains the same. “They say we have been here for 60,000 years, but it is much longer. We have been here since the time before time began. We have come directly out of the Dreamtime of the great Creative Ancestors. We have lived and kept the earth as it was on the First Day. All other peoples of the world came from us.”

With that framework and precedence set in Original Lore, under our obligations as prescribed by Wirritjin our task is half completed. The White-fella account we now bring to this equation is as much an enlightening acknowledgement of Original ancestry as it is an admission of an academic error of considerable proportions. The seminal genetic paper (The Recent African Genesis of Humans) that supposedly established the credentials of the Out-of-Africa theory and the existence of Homo sapien sapiens’ common mother living between 150,000-180,000 years ago, was written by Professors Alan Wilson and Rebecca Cann. Their published research has had a massive impact on current thinking when it comes to the genesis of Homo sapien sapiens. Regrettably, what is as puzzling as it is disappointing is that their follow-up research and public retractions in preference of a much older date and continent, Australia, has managed to run under the academic ‘radar’ for nigh on 25 years.

Upon conducting further research in Australia in 1987 and 1989, Wilson was able to collect 31 vials of full-descent Original blood which was found to have a mtDNA mutation rate of an incredibly high 70% (22 different mtDNA patterns identified from sample of 31). Knowing that each genetic variation occurs once every 3,500 years, which means that limited sampling equated to a minimum date of 77,000 years, and that any increase in blood surveyed would see the numbers increase dramatically, Wilson realised that his previous co-authored paper was flawed. The science was incontestable, Wilson was forced to concede their early work espousing the Out-of-Africa theory was fundamentally flawed in geography, timing and Original input. Wilson had no choice but to admit that “it seems too far out to admit, but while Homo erectus was muddling along in the rest of the world, a few erectus had got to Australia and did something dramatically different-not even with stone tools-but it is here that Homo sapiens emerged and evolved.”

In the spirit of Wirritjin we have sought out the wisdom of an important Black-fella who is a Keeper of the Old Ways along with an important White-fella scientist versed in the New Ways. Their findings are in accord, both believe “all peoples of the world came from us,” that the Original people are from this land, that they are the very first Homo sapiens, and that this ascension in hominid evolution occurred in Australia.

A Minimum Date

We now have who and where, but not when. In determining a minimum date of evolution, it is in keeping with the auspices of the Dreaming and Wirritjin to consult a third party. Three is the sacred arrangement in Original esoteric matters, and in maintaining that ancient balance and equity of gender the third expert consulted must be a woman. Rebecca Cann was actually the scientist and co-author who alerted Wilson to an elemental flaw in their paper, when assuming that the Original genetic mutation rate to be “about one third that shown by the whole human species.” According to Cann’s earlier study of the mtDNA of the blood of 112 humans drawn from 26 indigenous groups, that expectation of one third the genetic diversity was wrong by a factor of 30. She found that “mitochondrial DNA puts the origin of Homo sapiens much further back and indicates that the Australian Aborigines arose 400,000 years ago from two distinct lineages, far earlier than any other racial types.”

There was no customary scientific obsession through the hedging of bets with qualifiers in Cann’s declaration of Australian residence, and it got decidedly worse as she ran down the ‘honour roll.’ What has been known for some time amongst academic circles is that “the Australian racial group has a much larger number of mutations than any other racial group.” Cann decided to be bold and follow up on what this meant in relation to human genesis and sequence, and found that “the Australians split off from a common ancestor about 400,000 years ago. By the same theory, the Mongoloids originated about 100,000 years ago, and the Negroid and Caucasian groups about 40,000 years ago.”

If so, which is the case according to Wilson and Cann, then the Out-of-Africa is totally discredited, and thus explains why both authors recanted, but certainly not why this reversal in geography was ignored. Nevertheless, in their original papers the molecular clock from which they created a time line of hominid ascension and the underlying African genesis, is founded upon what was assumed to be two Australian certainties in genetics and settlement. “The aboriginal (sic) populations of New Guinea and Australia are estimated to be founded less than 50,000 to 60,000 years ago. The amount of evolution that has occurred in each of those places seems about one third of that shown by the whole human species. According, we can infer that Eve lived three times 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, or roughly 150,000 to 180,000 years ago.” What “seems” to be so to begin with, turns out to be wrong by a ratio of 30. The Original genes are not one third as old, but ten times older than the African genes. The overriding truth that emerges out of their independent follow up research is that their ‘molecular clock’ is broken and cannot be repaired!

Three international experts stand united in declaring that humans “emerged and evolved” in Australia. The timing suggested we would accept as a very bare minimum date, irrespective of numbers what is agreed to under the banner of Wirritjin by scientists and Elders alike, is that modern humanity first evolved in Australia. The next issue to address is what happened next? Did they stay isolated and separate from the rest of the world until the British Invasion, or was there another path taken that spread across the oceans and globe?

Apart yet Together

First up, we have to begin by clearing up a tainted analogy, that the Original people of close to 500 separate tribes, replete with differing language, lifestyles and ceremonies has been likened by non-Original commentators to the many tribal nations of fluctuating borders in Europe of a thousand years ago. This is a gross oversimplification, the Original societies of Australia were far more elegant and sophisticated in behaviour and protocol than the rabble of warring tribes bickering and fighting over land, goods, money and in many cases, the motivation was the sheer joy of battle and blood lust of the kill. The rules of engagement whether in battle or friendship in Australia were so complex and multi-levelled no-one ever broke the Law, warfare was on neutral ground, was fought face to face with honour and conducted without any form of collateral damage or land seizure.

There was a common ancient language (the first spoken) in Australia, which has been extensively examined in our previous five articles on the Standing Stones, a shared sign language that was used throughout the continent and more importantly, within the hundreds of separate tribal estates there existed a loose from of confederation that bound hundreds of tribes into a semi-formal association. Ramindjeri spokesperson Karno Walker has spoken on many occasions in some detail about the Southern Law network that has been in existence for hundreds of thousands of years. According to Karno this web of tribes runs 300 kilometres inland from the coast, beginning up near the Kimberleys (WA), the area of influence extends all around the Australian coastline down to South Australia, Victoria and all the way up the east coast until reaching Cape York. By landmass it would make up about one quarter of the Australian continent, and by Old Way sensibilities and norms it is still in existence and will continue functioning as a binding agent for all tribal estates under its jurisdiction.

From Karno Walker’s point of view there is only one reality:

SOUTHERN LAW/LORE AND STARS
Associate with five stages of this initiation process from being a youth to becoming in
a man.
Stage one: Ngulta (still regarded as little man).
Stage two: Yellambambatti
Stage three: Tarkanye
Stage four: Maneykawilva
Stave five: Burtonna (full manhood)
During Initiation the boys lived in seclusion from the main group. With each stage of the process, new knowledge was revealed through performances of song and dance or showing them the sacred objects. Various taboos were imposed, there were restrictions placed upon them during his process. The novice could hunt; eat according to the level he passed. They were isolate, could only associate with the men who witness the ceremonies and protocol was paramount.

This period was one of substantial hardship and strictness, but at the end of journey the youth now has entered his life in the community as an adult.
It was taboo for women to take part of the initiation process of young males. They
were per mitted to hear only parts of the activities and the singing of special songs while they kept themselves busy making the rugs made of opossum or kangaroo skins for the completion of the ceremony.
The rock formation tells the story.”

Karno's Picture

 

Axe-heads, pituri plant, ochre, baler shells and many other valuable tools and resources were traded throughout the country, often found thousands of kilometres from their point of origin. Trade and movement took place through agreed passageways and there were formalities in passage across unfamiliar lands. Within each tribe a few were chosen whose task it was to learn as many of the neighbouring tribes tongues as possible, this was an important role as the person who carried the message stick was fundamental in keeping harmony with those who lived nearby. In an oral society fostering good relations could only come about through clear communication and a full understanding of another point of view.

This continent was in a constant state of transit and movement, interaction was the staple diet, and perhaps of all the examples of how badly the continental common purpose that underpinned all Original societies was misunderstood, we suspect that the amazing Standing Stones site is first amongst Original equals. It was here, amongst the many other intriguing pieces of archaeology, geology and history, that something took place which illustrates a breadth of connection throughout the country that even surprised us in its implications. It has been extensively reported, and verified, that on this sacred mound Original Clever-fellas and Kadaitja men from all over the country could perform their ceremonies. Rituals that apparently had no connection to this country were permitted on this sacred mound alone, and it is well accepted that men from the Kimberleys, the Top End, Cape York, and many other locations came to this sacred construction on the Far North Coast of NSW and gave homage their way. And it seems that at this site, all ways were part of this location.

Above and beyond all the considerable differences in lifestyle, diet, ceremony and culture, there was one supreme binding principle that transcended every boundary: the unifying philosophy of the Dreaming. The names, words, dance steps and style of art will vary throughout the land, but behind all the differences every man, woman and child was bound body and soul to the principles of the Dreaming. All believed, no knew, that the Spirits were real and ever-present in the land and all places in between, no deed, good or bad, escaped the attention of the Silent Ones. The Dreaming isn’t a religion as such but more an acknowledgement that all things are equal. Tree, wallaby or person all come from the same essence. Therefore, that connection to the land and life in all its guises is all there is and an elemental part of every day and life.

A Stocktake of the First Boat out of Australia

The connection to the Divine was first realised and understood in Australia, then as the circumstances and timing demanded this wisdom, along with many other Original gifts and insights, was part of the cargo shipped abroad and taken to the “other peoples of the world.” As this is meant to be an overview of the stocktake of what was exported from Australia, there is no need to provide evidence for each claim as an earlier article/paper can be referenced for any needing more information. What we can assure the reader is that each claim has a solid base in science, history or archaeology.

Without doubt the Original people were charting the stars, and ‘dark spaces in between’ for tens of thousands of years, and used these skills while sailing the world’s oceans including the circumnavigation of the world “in a figure eight.” Surgery, whether amputating a limb, or successfully cutting through the skull to operate on the brain are but some skills validated by archaeology and part of the medical knowledge shared with others. A fungal variety of penicillin was known of and used by Original physicians and was the inspiration behind the most recent rediscovery. The most enlightening aspects of humanity at its best, be it religion, gender equality, art or democracy begin in the same place, as do the genes that seeded the emergence of a new hominid species: Homo sapien sapiens.

Knowing Australia was the central point in ancient historical times from the very beginning, and that they were first Homo sapien sapiens, the next question to be asked relates to as to what was going on inside this country? Was it, as most would expect, a continuous time spent as naked nomadic hunter-gatherers? We are not so sure, hints and obscure references have flown above our heads, and as things stand our belief is that the answer is no. We suspect other ways of living were tried and found wanting, or perhaps other people/beings were allowed to settle and develop technologically, but either way there are many sites and archaeological remains that just don’t fit into the way things stand.

None of this Archaeology Fits

2014-03-23 09.30.44

Again these sites and relics have been discussed in previous articles and their credentials are already established, so once again a brief description is sufficient. The rule of thumb when assessing any unusual evidence is that before the British invasion the only technology present was that found in the Original tool-kit comprising of stone, bone and stick implements.

Trina Barnes took us to a site where extremely hard granite and quartz rocks, some weighing tonnes, were cut, shaped and placed to make a long wall and other constructions. The weights moved and hardness of rock cut demands a blade of the hardest steel from recent times. So too, a blade capable of cutting very hard rock, but with the finest of edges capable of creating a perfect circle, was in use when creating an eight-armed compass radiating out of a circle without the hint of a straight line. The ancient rocks found both at the Standing Stones site and Adam’s Garden display neither the typical percussion point every stone on stone impact creates, nor is there any evidence of a chisel or blade. So exact is the cut and precise the angle, we have one rock given to us by the Original Custodian of the site that is so sharp it can cut skin and draw blood. In each case banging two rocks together will never create what can be found in the Australian bush and was made long ago.

2014-05-13 15.07.26The two magnetic rocks found at the Gympie Healing Table, each displaying a different form of magnetic property and neither rock is anywhere close to a natural event. Whether the one-side magnetic and other side non-magnetic sandstone rock, or the top magnetic crust and non-magnetic inner sandstone rock, both were found at this site and being solely made of sandstone should not be magnetic at all. Something has taken place here of which geology is not a partner. So too the ten metre shaft directly behind the 300 hieroglyphs engraved into the sandstone walls at Bambara, what was dug and extracted from beneath led to the creation of a 10 metre tunnel with parallel walls. What only adds to the mystique there is a very good chance that this was originally used to bury the son of an Egyptian Pharaoh. Even if this isn’t the case, nobody, and that includes official spokespersons, would dare suggest it was a natural event, and because of this there is an approved explanation as to who was responsible: ‘vandals.’10) Shaft

Fiction and desperation aside, and very close by, within metres of this 10 metre vandalised tunnel without tagging, an artefact was found by Original Elder Aunty Minnie Mace when investigating the hieroglyphs with Ray Johnson. She suspects it is an ancient Egyptian type of jewelry, when it was originally found it was caked in dirt and debris and took some time to clean. The clasp was originally intact and had a complete circle, but was broken when being worn around her granddaughter’s neck. It is non-magnetic, metallic, smooth on one side, very light and ancient. However, according to all conventional historical accounts it should not exist. So too, the small metal object with a crystal embedded within, found within 50 metres of the Bambara Glyphs and in the middle of the bush should not have been there, but it was.

IMAG0837As with the metal object, the chances of an ancient Egyptian presence in Australia is highly likely when examining the bona fides of Tracy’s Tablet and the Bambara Hieroglyphs. We are of the belief that the tablet with close to 300 hieroglyphs, engraving of an Ankh, three sarcophagi and carvings of Osiris and Isis, commemorate a formal agreement between an Original tribal representative and the Egyptian royal family. Equally the Bambara glyphs expand upon the narrative of first arrival and the misfortunes that befell one of the Pharaoh’s son leading on to his demise and internment.

2014-10-03 12.30.11Undeniably two fascinating additions to our ancient Egyptian dossier, but the real truth is they are of secondary interest to the main event in that there is ample confirmation that the Egyptians risked life and limb to sail all this distance, but why, what was the motivation? That question is far more intriguing and important. There was no building, gold trinkets, slaves to procure or wealth to loot, what they sought was the wisdom of the ages and the reason why. Hints of the scope of this wisdom and breadth of expertise that saw the Egyptians enter this country as mere novices, can be found within the lines and intersections engraved into Ros’ Rock. Already the subject of six articles with the assistance of three academics, two with PhD’s and the other a professor, it is agreed the technology required is beyond the scope of any machine, person or company until the mid-20th century and is utterly at odds with conventional historical versions. It is so complex and inter-connected, and with over 200 lines, intersections, shapes and peckings to decode we suspect this brief is beyond the abilities of any human from this time. The in-filling, being polished twice, the variety of blades used and exact alignments created come from a very ancient time bearing a message that may change everything.

We are aware of many other anomalous artefacts and sites that defy convention, and more often than not it is not so much an informed denial issued through official channels, but simply a matter of refusing to look or engage in conversation. Due to the monumental significance at so many levels of Ros’ Rock I telephoned, emailed and personally met at the Australian Museum a variety of representatives. Eventually after spurning invitations to inspect and assess, they did offer a refutation that is as ludicrous as it is humorous and has already been discussed in some detail. The reality is, every step and discovery has been marked by open interference or disinterest by the people who should make a difference.

Half way There

Who, where and to an extent when Homo sapien sapiens evolved has been addressed with the guidance Original Lore and history supported by White-fella science. Some of what was exported abroad and a sampling of inconvenient archaeology found within has been discussed, but this summary is half complete, there is more yet to be placed into context.

Where the Original mariners and explorers went after leaving Australian shores is definitely a topic to be examined, as is the one specific time when we believe there was a large exodus of Original people that culminated in the situation where “all other peoples from the world come from us.” For tens, and most likely hundreds, of thousands of years the principles of the Dreaming reigned supreme throughout the globe. The abandonment of this guidance and global philosophy was partly human and part nature’s doing, the combination of a massive natural calamity that decimated the global population by no less than 90% occurring around 12,000 years ago, followed not long after by a dramatic change in lifestyle in every settled continent except Australia, saw the Original people withdraw from the global scene.

With more to come and a synopsis half developed, despite our rigour and good intentions our concluding article is bound to fall short of the mark. To give justice and ample airing of the real Original truth would warrant a room full of books with every publication overseen by Original Elders and Custodians versed in the Old Ways. A dozen pages spread over two segments is a very poor second, but even so it still serves a purpose in providing a crude sketch, and with that modest target achievable and half done, the article that follows will complete our task.

Welcome to the whole truth and nothing but the Original truth.

Standing under the banner of Wirritjin (Ramindjeri for Black-fella White-fella Dreaming), Australian researchers Steven and Evan Strong have been allowed to see sites and artefacts rarely, if ever, revealed before. They now stand ready—with the support of Original Elders—to pass that knowledge on to a hungry public.

Their videos, slides, and actual artefacts from the field (all given to them by the proper Custodians of the Old Ways) will, as Graham Hancock recently commented when on-site, “rewrite world history.”

“Our directive from the Original Elders and Custodians of Lore is simple: to provide science and historical accounts of the highest calibre in support of the Original historical narrative.

Through our analysis of the latest discoveries in Mitochondrial DNA, Y Chromosomes, Genome patterns and skull morphology, we will prove that the Australian Original people, never the Africans, were not only the first Homo sapien sapiens, but they alone can make the claim “that all other people of the world come from us.”

Bringing together ancient sites, archaeology, artefacts, and wisdom from the Elders, the Strongs present ample evidence of an ancient technology used in Australia that is still beyond present-day capacities, and a depth and intimacy with esoteric wisdom that shames us today, including an eternal connection to the stars—with a particular emphasis on the Pleiades.

Find out why Graham Hancock spent six days this year with the Strongs on-site, viewing and commending their work.

Learn what astonished Michael Tellinger at the Bambara site.

Discover why Klaus Dona, Laird Scranton, and James Swagger are working with the Strongs in solving different parts of this enormous Australian archaeological puzzle that smashes the history books to smithereens.

Is it a “Whale,” “Star-fish,” “Pleiadian Spaceship” or all Three? (Article)

Is it a “Whale,” “Star-fish,” “Pleiadian Spaceship” or all Three?

By Steven and Evan Strong

This rather perplexing engraving has become a ‘mixed blessing.’ The pecked engraving of what we believe to be a space-ship, of most likely Pleiadian origin, is as much a mill-stone as it is an amazing piece of archaeology that as yet cannot be classified.

Rediscovered around two years ago, it did seem at first glance to present a compelling case in representing some sort of space-ship. What became apparent from the first time I saw the engraving was how much the general shape and proportions were similar to the so-called UFO glyphs at Bambara. So much did the two engravings resemble each other, measurements were taken at both this platform and at the largest Bambara UFO glyph.

But even as detailed measurements were made, there was one crucial point of difference that was to have a direct impact on any meaningful comparisons. The far bigger engraving was of a craft that has two levels, separated by a pecked line that runs from side to side in the upper semi-circle. All of the eight ‘UFO glyphs’ at Bambara are of one level with no dividing line in the upper capsule. Outside that obvious difference, both glyphs have five legs with a small circle at each end, and have upper semi-circles with a curved underside.

ufo

There was hope that the numbers may be close, but nothing like this. The smallest Bambara ‘UFO’ glyph is 19 centimetres wide, while the larger engraving is 190 cms at it widest point. That is a ratio of ten to one. The two vertical measurements were compared, the capsule of the smaller engraving is 7.5 centimetres high and what was so much in alignment that I had to recheck my notes, nothing changed, the bigger semi-circle is 150 centimetres high. That is exactly twenty times bigger and double the horizontal ratio, but so it should be, for if the larger craft was double-storied so too should the vertical mathematics be doubled. With that doubling precedent established, all vertical measurements of the smaller UFO Bambara glyph must also be multiplied by 20. The longest of the Bambara glyph legs is 8.4 cms. This number needs to be increased by a factor of 20 which equals 168 centimetres, and that number is exactly the same as the measurement made of the longest of the five legs on the rock platform.

2014-01-14 15.43.52

In concluding, this ancient engraved algorism has three elements and two locations and is multiplied by ten once, twenty twice and all comes out the same. It could all be random, but the odds are decidedly against this being down to pure coincidence. Those numbers and the obvious similarity in shape, along with the fact the larger craft was actually pecked, which is an older technique, left us confident enough to suggest in an earlier article this was most likely a UFO engraving. Measuring very close to two metres by four metres, its size is of such dimensions that researcher Klaus Dona believes it to be “the biggest engraving of a UFO.”

IMAG0618 - Copy

It is a Whale

It all looked so promising, but not long after there was a pause in proceedings. I still remember standing in front of Sean and his camera offering an apology to Aunty Beve, but within the next breath equivocating. An each-way bet at best and uneasy compromise, the apology of sorts was delivered, but there were good reasons why I wasn’t convinced.

I did explain that Aunty Beve was sure, after taking advice from a trusted confidante, this engraving was not of any terrestrial vessel, but merely a whale. The story was that during the 1890’s a government appointed compiler of local Original sites and carvings by the name of Campbell came upon the same pecking and when asked of its meaning was told by a local Original person it was a “whale.” It was simple as that, there is no UFO here just a common old whale. Having agreed that Aunty Beve disagreed with what was reported, I then added that the numbers run contrary to her belief and left the matter suspended until further information came onto the scene to tip the scales.

Then Again, Maybe not

And so it did, and it wasn’t more supporting mathematics, but the input of three Original Elders that added clarity. Soon after we put out a video about the site, another group of critics and academics put up an opposing video dismissing our theory and explaining that the engraving is a whale. By now the pressure was being ramped up, and the easy way out would to be walk away and agree we had been mistaken. A phone call from Original Elder Gerry B. (full name cannot be given as he is recently deceased) began with him asking about all the fuss we had caused. I assumed I was about to receive more grief for overstepping my boundaries, but it was the opposite, Gerry was ringing to confirm that we were actually right.

He went further, according to Gerry all engraved and pecked whales of this region are symbolic, they are actually space-ships, and he extended the horizons dramatically in nominating an ancient distant ancestral connection to the Pleiades. As much as it was welcome to hear one lone voice in our corner, there was more, much more, Gerry had proof. He asked me if I knew of David Uniapon, the only Original person depicted on any Australian currency. I knew that he has been referred to as the Original version of Leonardo Da Vinci, and if he had the money for patents, his many inventions which included the electric shears, helicopters, etc. would have made him the richest Original person on the planet. So many of his inventions were lost in the clamour to steal his intellectual property. He was an extremely intelligent, gifted and a very proud Original man. Uniapon visited the Kariong/Bambara area, met with Elders and recorded the outcome of his time on country in a book. Chapter 19 is devoted to the engraved whales, not just the special one we found, but all of them. According to Uniapon and ancient Original Lore, they are not whales as such, but “Star-fish.”

Campbell claims he was told by an unnamed Original person the engraving in question is merely a “whale.” Campbell is not an Elder or an Original person and nor has he been given ceremony. If he was asked for any secret or scared information it should not be given, it is against the Law to do so. A child’s version would suffice to see him on his way.

It needs to be understood that such a selective approach in sharing the bare minimum when it comes to explaining the meaning of sacred sites/carvings is common practise in local tribal lands, as evidenced by the next ‘official’ excursion into the same country in the 1930’s led by Reverend McCarthy. A classic example of another gross understatement as recorded by McCarthy, relates to an engraving of a gathering of 32 men lined up beside a whale. Each person is in a different pose, some have bands, some their arms raised, and so the deliberate variations in stance and body pose continue throughout. The official version, that this is merely a “whale feast,” is so far from the mark we are amazed it is still in print. There is so much missing in arrogance and it is certainly much more than a group of 32 men lining up for a mid-day feed.
Uniapon was told that these same “whale” engravings are “star-fish” by the Darkinooong Elders. Unlike Campbell and McCarthy, Uniapon is an Elder, an Original person of highest standing and was given Original ceremonies and White-fella recognition as a person of exceptional qualities. We suspect that as many Dreaming stories and accounts are multi-levelled, beginning with a child-like narrative then elaborated upon through more enlightened interpretations, Campbell was given the bare minimum, while Uniapon was allowed to share in the deeper meanings and celestial inspirations.

My unease was beginning to abate, speaking against anything Aunty Beve said is something I have never done and was not taken lightly, especially since this her land, but the facts were beginning to level out the playing field. Knowing that Gerry was the Original person who introduced the Bambara glyphs to many non-Original people of good standing, and was a guardian of the area, these facts gave us reason to hold fast.

Aunty Minnie Mace rang two days later, her first question was again about the whale/UFO. She is very much a part of the Original connection to that area and was with Ray Johnson decades earlier when the first serious attempt was made to acknowledge the international importance of this site. Her knowledge of Egyptian culture is utterly massive and her word in these matters must be listened to. I told her Gerry rang about the same site and asked the same question, and without hesitation Aunty Minnie made it very clear whatever Gerry said was to be accepted without question. Both parts? That it was a spaceship and came from the Plieades? Absolutely!

On to other things, that part of the conversation was over. Aunty Minnie rang to validate Gerry’s right to speak on such matters and confirm his advice, then speak about issues not relevant to this account. But the tide had changed, I now had three Original Elders, at that stage two living and one dead, all insisting the Original people at Kariong were in contact with and engraving extra-terrestrial space-ships.

The “Carriers From up There”

Three out of four would seem a solid base, but it was still not enough. As the months passed Aunty Beve began to feel more relaxed and comfortable in discussing Original Lore and shared more with our group. She began to speak of “star beings,” then on another occasion spent close to half an hour in conversation returning in an attempt to remember the exact term the Elders used to describe the space-ships. “That’s it! Carriers from up there.” So it does need to be added that at no stage was the idea of space-ships appearing in ancient or recent times an issue of concern for Aunty Beve.

Then finally, close to a year after the You Tube and article strongly suggesting this is a pecking of a UFO of some sort was released, Aunty Beve shared a snippet of ancient history that saw any lingering doubts vanish. She spoke of a “mother-ship crashing in the still waters of Bambara,” I still remember each of those words being etched into my memory-the final clue. The pecked five-legged UFO is less than one hundred metres from the “still waters of Bambara,” if standing on the rock platform and looking forward, it is mainly blue water ahead. So since our initial differing take on this site, Aunty Beve has spoken of “star-beings,” arriving in this area in “carriers from up there,” and of the accidental crash of the mother-ship in “the still waters of Bambara.” She has neither criticised us for the You Tube or article for offering a contrary opinion, and if she was offended she would have made that very clear with no guesswork needed.

Even before one Elder expressed their support of our interpretation, it wasn’t just the maths that did add up, the site did not add up. We have seen many engraved whales, always with fins and very little internal markings. Here we can still see five legs with circles, two dividing lines and there is more internal work further down the slope after a steep descent. And that’s the next point, the object, be it whale, UFO or anything else, drops down a 90 degree slope for about a metre then continues down another incline. It is spread all over, every other whale engraving in the area is complete, intact and on one level platform. The platform beside is twice as large, and would easily accommodate the entire figure on one level area as is the case everywhere else. So why start pecking a whale that clearly will not fit when ten metres away there is rock platform big enough to fit two whales and half a dozen dolphins for good measure? Unless, of course, it was never a whale that was being pecked, but a “Star-fish,” and not just any old

“Star-fish,” but the “Mother-ship.”

When all the dust settles and accusations are ignored, it comes down to a very simple tally of for and against. We have the word of one White-fella who claimed that an unnamed Black-fella said it is a “whale,” or three Black-fellas with names and quotation marks who swear it is a “Star-fish.” What is as fascinating as it is endemic, is that all mainstream outlets have chosen the non-Original version of events as the final word on this cultural dispute. Nevertheless, irrespective of whether the pecking is a whale or Pleiadain space-ship, there is one point of agreement amongst all four Elders: that “carriers from up there” were landing down here.

The Curse of Von Daniken

Some may ask that with the huge influx of recent archaeology and sites, why are we back-pedalling in rehashing an old site and wounds? The reason is simple, recent and related directly to a condescending comment made by a mainstream spokesperson when dismissing our credentials in reporting on Ros’ Rock. Tessa Corkill (Australian Museum) made it clear that our work in substantiating a Pleidian input was a distinct negative and sullied our reputation as scholars.
Who says so? Why is it that if we accept the Original insistence that they carry an ancient Pleiadian ancestry, anything we write or propose, irrespective of its connection to this distant constellation, is damned by association? Why is it deemed an academic sin to suggest such a possibility? Is there an unwritten proclamation that states once lapsing through the acknowledgement of an extra-terrestrial presence, all research before and after, which must also include Ros’ Rock, is also discredited? Apparently, from the time of Erik Von Daniken’s book Chariots of the Gods onwards, the answer has been yes.

What is rather odd is that in countless surveys, when asking the general public if they believe there is possibility UFO’s exist, the majority verdict is a resounding yes. But if the survey was just restricted to a published response given by professional academics, we sincerely doubt there would be a lone voice in the wilderness. To say such things in the public arena comes with one guarantee, a retraction or loss of respect, reputation and possible employment. It is now agreed the earth is no longer flat, but the people in control certainly are, and are no different in mind-set and conservative disposition than their proto-types who threatened to persecute Galileo for speaking the truth.

And what is the truth in this case and pecking? The non-Original record is of no account and unworthy of compiling. The Original majority verdict is three to one, with the Elder voting no also acknowledging that “star-beings” were present and accounted for in earlier days. With a backdrop of the Seven Sisters Dreaming story spread throughout the country, we believe that even though Aunty Beve may disagree, this particular “Star-fish” pecking is of the “Mother-ship” crashing in “the still waters of Bambara.”

“Three Strikes and we are all out of Africa and into Australia” (Article)

Three Strikes and we are all out of Africa and into Australia

By Steven & Evan Strong
The most recent mtDNA study we stumbled across, is from our perspective the final nail in the coffin of the Out-of-Africa theory. Once, twice and a third time over, separate genetic studies of Homo sapien sapiens, dingoes and now song birds, stand united in ascribing the same place of origin: Australia.

The genetic facts in these equations are incontestable, the distinctive and unique nature of the mitochondrial DNA of both the dingo and Mungo Man (WLH 3) cannot be matched to any like species on this planet.

homosapiensapien-mungo

In 1991 mtDNA was extracted from the bones of Mungo Man (WLH3). Agreed to be the oldest Homo sapien sapien yet found in Australia and dated by Alan Thorne to be over 60,000 years old, his internal genetic code should reek of African ancestry. Theoretically, the African castaways who first got to Australia around 50-60,000 years ago would have barely set up camp on a beach thousands of kilometres to the north, but here they were fully settled by a lake system positioned well to the south and a thousand kilometres from any coast. In what is as unexpected as it is inconvenient, a comparison of Mungo Man’s mitochondrial DNA to every other hominid and primate past and present, came up empty. The lack of connection to any person, ape or monkey presented a real problem for the researchers who responded in the only way they could, declaring the sample to be “an extinct gene.”(1) Rather than choosing a description like ‘separate,’ ‘different,’ ‘older,’ or ‘ancestral,’ the idea it is a long lost off-shoot or some form of mutation is self-serving in dismissing Mungo Man as part of an irrelevant genetic cul-de-sac. The real possibility that Mungo Man is not African, nor are any other Original people, is a far less appealing path for mainstream academia to embark.

So too this year’s genetic research investigating the make-up of the dingo found the same lack of connection to any other species or location on the planet outside Australia. After extensive research by a team of Australian geneticists, they were quick to concede that the genes of the dingo are markedly different from all other dogs and wolves found everywhere else. They are adamant that the dingo did not descend from any canine in Southern India or any other location. In the simplest terms the dingo is genetically unique and separate and its ancestry is now unknown. Regrettably but predictably, there is no prospect of further research in solving this genetic impasse. The whole result was unforseen and from the perspective of the academics in research it just doesn’t make sense, and when that happens it easier to walk away and look the other way. dingo_514_600x450

These observations are not opinions but agreed facts, the problem is that what follows is far less digestible. What is as real as it was lamentable is the researchers’ narrow focus in being unable to appreciate all the implications and avenues of research beginning to unfold. The logic lost in transmission is as simple as it is compelling: if the dingo and the oldest modern human found in Australia are genetically unique and cannot be genetically linked to any dog, wolf, human, hominid or primate that ever lived on this planet, they are neither related to others of their type nor do they share a common ancestry.

Bad Science and Lazy Thinking

The insurmountable problem these genetic studies creates is obvious, if both Australian dingo and human are unique, the question that demands to be answered relates to how can it be that there is common belief that Original Australians came from Africa and the ancestor of the dingo lived in Southern India? What is puzzling is that despite the imposing evidence to the contrary, every text, university and lecturer will earnestly claim that the Out-of-Africa theory is an unquestionable fact. Equally, from the same department their books assure us that all dogs, canines and wolves share the same ancestry, but that is not true in the dingoes’ case. All of this smells like bad science and lazy thinking, but it gets worse, there are birds in the air to reconsider and reposition.

In what only highlights the inability of mainstream academia to respond with an open mind and clear vision, yet another mtDNA study of a different species, song birds, came to the same conclusion and continent.

Singing up the Wrong Tree

The Australian researcher who has rewritten so much on the history of birds, entered the field when the prevailing belief that Australia had ‘second-hand bird fauna’ was regarded as a sacrosanct truth. Professor Les Christidis (director of Southern Cross University’s National Marine Science Centre) has impeccable credentials, and we sincerely doubt there is a person more qualified to embark on such a massive study. He has a Bachelor of Science with honours in zoology and genetics (University of Melbourne), a PhD in population and evolutionary genetics (ANU), senior co-author of Systematics and Taxonomy of Australian Birds, co-editor of the Complete Checklist of the Birds of the World, and so the list of his achievements continue.

In what is a touch ironic Professor Christidis was a reluctant passenger when it came to birds of any type, and was not an avid bird watcher. From the age of seven he harboured a strong passion to become a zoologist and held no interest in birds, what really captured his attention were mammals. By default he was born in a continent inhabited by marsupials, bats and rodents, and to begin with became interested in the genetics of insects.

It was only while working on insects did Les Christidis realise there was virtually no research being done on birds in Australia. With such a vacuum seen not as an academic black-hole but an opportunity, pragmatism stepped in as he realised that there was an opportunity to become an expert in bird genetics. When first venturing into this academic field, it was blighted by the same narrow focus that taints so much Original archaeology in Australia, that we are merely recipients from abroad. It was assumed that this continent was a global backwater, a place of second-hand birds, dingoes and hominids, somewhat of an afterthought to real action taking place everywhere else on the planet.

When Christidis first suggested that “nightingales, mockingbirds and songbirds around the world originated in Australia then populated the rest of the globe”(2) during “the late 1980s”(3) it was considered “ludicrous.”(4) “When we first suggested this … we got laughed at … Australia doesn’t have that many birds relative to the rest of the world, so how can it be the centre of everything? It turns out that lowly Australia is the centre. Australia can lay claim to songbirds without a shadow of a doubt.”(5)

100_1093

As Professor Christidis started to analyse the real science, as opposed to comfortable assumptions, he too found everything was back-the-front. Australia was never a passive recipient but a major global provider. “Up until the last four or five years it’s always been thought that the passerine birds originated in the northern hemisphere and spread south and that’s been the gospel for the last 200 years.”(6)

“The Gospel”(7) Versus Good Science

For daring to suggest a species evolved in Australia first, Les Christidis was attacked by many academic quarters and for quite some time no accepted journal would go near him or his research. This sounds so familiar and is the same decidedly hostile path we are also trying to navigate. As expected such a revolutionary theory gained very little traction and was “mocked by the scientific community.”(8) After receiving a not so “friendly response”(9) the criticism was certainly ramped up in vitriol, so much so that they did concede thinking “let’s not pursue it anymore because you know, life’s too short to have to constantly be ridiculed on these things.”(10) Fortunately good science did prevail over bad manners and we noted that with further genetic research in collaboration with European researchers, they eventually confirmed their initial findings. With the tick gained abroad, as is so often the case, all Australian academics then fell into line.

What is rather ironic and symptomatic of the conservative academic climate is that which was vigorously denied by the experts then, is now accepted “without a shadow of a doubt”(11) as a scientific truth. But to begin with this latter-day fact was regarded as a ridiculous proposition, and a permanent reminder of the intellectual apathy that reigned at the time and how quickly people in control never learn from the errors.

In our experience this predisposition towards labelling anything new as “ludicrous”(12) is actually a collective aversion towards questioning evidence inconvenient or unfamiliar. But as things stood, in Australia in 1986 this country was assumed to be a land of ‘second-hand’ birds, a place where one species of what is now categorised a non-dog/wolf was thought to be a younger off-shot of a dog from Southern India, and a continent who were populated by a people who came from Africa. Even though the mtDNA extracted from the oldest Original person (Lake Mungo Man) has no relationship to any African and was deemed to be an “extinct gene,”(13) nothing really changes in the corridors of …

The Original Verdict

As is our custom and preference, we always seek Original guidance when dealing with any aspect of Lore and ancient Australian history, there is no other course available. But in going back to the very beginning, first hand witness accounts are sparse on the ground, and under these conditions near enough will suffice. There is an account found in A. W. Reed’s book Aboriginal (sic) Myths, Legends & Fables which provides an exceptional overview as to the interconnectedness of dingo, human, bird and all creations, and the place from which all forms of creation originated.

In a Dreaming story, The Making of Mankind, which is essentially about “how the world began and was populated with animal life,”(14) the Creation Spirit Biamie “was entrusted the task of forming and caring for animal life.”(15) This was first occurring in Australia, but Biamie’s task was “lacking.”(16) The missing ingredient to complete what he set out to do was “the form and intelligence of man.”(17)

At this point the narrative gets decidedly genetic, but leaving that aside, there is an underlying message of an eternal inter-species connection that seems long forgotten in today’s race forward. Adamant this genesis took place in the land where Original people always inhabited since the beginning, the Original Creation Spirit had all but completed his plan of life. “When at last the experiments were complete. Baiame gathered birds, animals, and insects together in a cave. Baiame and Yhi acted in concert, plucking what may be described as the incubated fragments of the spirit of man from their animal hosts, amalgamating them into one cohesive whole. The animals looked on in astonishment. The longings and aspirations that belong to man alone were lost to them forever. Content with their nature …”(18)

This Dreaming story is as much about the origins of so many life-forms as it is a cautionary tale about the “desires”(19) and “pride”(20) purged from all of Biamie’s creations bar one, Homo sapien sapiens. Central to this account of creation, is that there is an inherent connection that binds all forms of life and that it all begins here.

The White-fella Verdict

So once again another avenue of research in Australia into an area of genetics that was assumed to be fact, has been found fundamentally flawed and wrong. It would seem that the rest of the world has ‘second-hand’ sapiens, song birds and dogs. Feather, fur or skin, in each case their origin lay in Australia, simply because the genetics and Original Custodians of the Old Ways will have it no other way.

“I Have no Idea how the Marks were made.” Article By Steven, Evan Strong and Professor X

“I Have no Idea how the Marks were made.”

By Steven, Evan Strong and Professor X

Amongst all the tragic consequences that evolve out of the Australian Museum’s refusal to acknowledge that Ros’ rock is either Australian or of any interest to Original culture or Lore, none is more galling than the illogicality of their proposition that about hundred years ago either an African tourist, or an Australian just returned from holidaying in Africa, brought the rock across from Africa and accidentally dropped it while walking in the bush near Kariong.

2014-07-24 15.53.43 - Copy

With no option but concede the technology needed to mark this rock is far too advanced to be part of her understanding of Original history before the Invasion, the Australian Museum spokesperson (Tessa Corkill) was adamant the carved rock came from “Africa,” or somewhere else “overseas.” She is wrong. Knowing it was found in sandstone country near Kariong and even claiming it would take only 100 years for one metre of sandstone to cover the engraved rock on the site it was found is a geological impossibility. Irrespective of the faulty premises, let us assume that the rock was found in Africa and brought here 100 years ago and an avalanche fell on top. It still doesn’t work, simply because the technology to make a variety of markings, some thick, some delicate and quite a few extremely small, just wasn’t in existence anywhere at that time. Australia, Africa or Europe, it makes no difference as no tool or device is up to the task on display. And if there was one cutting-edge machine getting close to be able to cut, peck and chisel delicate and thick lines over a century ago, why waste the time, blades and expertise to cut into a common rock? How does such a fruitless economic enterprise cover expenses, and what purpose does it serve?

The location of discovery does not lessen this scientific truth, even if the rock is an import it makes no difference whatsoever. It breaks the rules no matter where the geography. This blaring scientific truth and imperative was lost in translation by Corkill and deserves to be addressed. And in answer to these questions avoided, Professor X provided a measured written response to the rock and the riddle of the engraved lines, peckings, packings and polishing.

The Rock is not …

“The rock is definitely not ironstone. This rock came from a river and is well-polished slightly jointed block of hard sedimentary rock. The small infillings took place sometime afterwards (after the initial polishing) and I have no idea how the marks were made. River, and less often beach, pebbles and cobbles can acquire a good polish naturally. This no doubt happens at innumerable places in the world. I am very familiar with natural polish on stones, but of course artificial polish on stones is also possible. The polish on Ros’ stone could well be natural but the straight lines on it don’t look natural to me.”

Professor X has done exactly what the Australian Museum should have done, carefully look, examine, assess all of the six articles we have written and then, after all the information and data was in, has given a considered mid-term verdict. All we are championing here is good science, we have made multiple approaches and offered to liaise with the Australian Museum, and this is what we get!? If they had just ignored us and said nothing, as the other organisations did, it is more of the same and no big deal. But once ringing Ros, saying so many wrong things then threatening to pass these mistruths on to the Gosford City Council, a line has been crossed, errors have to be corrected and blame must be apportioned.

The two points deserving of immediate attention relate to the polishing and lines. We made note in our previous article that Professor X had identified two distinct stages when polishing occurred. This means that the rock was marked at two different times then placed in the water for many, many, decades until a natural polish began to form, or was it artificially cut then polished twice. That’s it, there are no other cards on the table, it has to be one or the other. On at least two occasions the rock was engraved and polished, and knowing the sophistication of the tool kit needed to cut, incise and peck a rock of this hardness is present and accounted for, being able to polish the end-result of this cut and paste is no stretch in technology or logic.

The Blombos Rocks, Lascaux markings, the Calgary Rock, and other rocks bearing ancient markings are simply scratchings or engravings into a piece of rock using a crude sharp object, one process from start to finish, end of story. On this rock, which is far harder, we have evidence of no less than four processes, two cuts and two polishes. The agency responsible for the polishing is still a maybe, but certainly leaning towards human intervention.

When it comes to the “infilling,” which happened “after initial polishing,” whatever took place and however this was done, this is an example of non-natural activity. Of a different colour, surrounded by the lipping of the base rock, the skills and expertise required in packing and attaching is again very advanced and so at odds with conventional historical accounts.

The same applies to the “marks” and “straight lines,” which “don’t look natural” and could only come about through the application of technology of the highest refinement applying blades of exceptional strength. Forget 1913, that date can be thrown out the window, this is a big ask today let alone one hundred years ago. In referring to the engraved lines our guide conceded that “I have no idea how the marks were made,” or to put it another way, “the straight lines on it don’t look natural to me.” Over his many years examining all types of rocks and marks, this rock stands apart simply because what is carved has no parallel or precedent, and in what only adds to the complexity there may well be another contribution to this narrative. The only difference being that this time it was not engraved into the surface, but pecked or incised.

In the Light of the Mid-day sun

Due to a combination of enlightening factors which included a magnifying glass, the midday sun, clean glasses and some serious staring I was able to substantially add to the tally of peckings on the rock. In particular Side 2, which looks quite innocuous at first glance and until now had never been scanned by a magnifying glass, actually has nineteen new pecks marked on the diagram. There are only two that are not absolutely artificial, but are quite likely due to the impact of a tool. On Side 1 four more were found, which in total adds up to 28 peckings, and there may be more. What this does is add a lot more gravitas to this complex story-board and yet another level of narrative in this rock.Ros' Rock Three Sides Diagram 2_0002

 

For myself the biggest surprise was not so much the discovery of that which was pecked, but what is two series of very old incisions, one is of three vertical notches in a row and the other four. In our earlier, less well-lit inspections, we assumed these two clusters were each one older thick depression in the surface which was the result of one strike of the blade. Extremely fine, small and with the finest margin between each cut, these markings require blades of a finesse and hardness that is difficult to conceive. Just as important, this is the third technique used in engraving this rock. We have already examined a large variety of engravings and peckings, but these seven marks were incised into the rock, it seems like a blade rock dug in and then flicked out. All other ancient engraved rocks found throughout the world are limited to one type of cutting or engraving, never three.

This rock is wrapped around so many additions to this ever-expanding tool-kit of blades, chisels and hammers, and we have no doubt there is more to come.

A Mid-term Report

However, amongst all the mystery and hints of advanced technology some signposts have been recognised. At the present stage of proceedings we have identified the presence of 44 engraved lines, 54 points of intersection, 74 shapes, 28 pecks and 7 incisions. We are of the belief that the depth of lines, angles, intersection points, shapes, spaces in between, peckings, incisions, angles of surface, interrelationship between the three sides, in-fillings, prescribed manner of holding the rock and length of each line are but some of the contributing factors that go some way towards creating this multi-dimensional ancient narrative of time, events and space.

What can be declared with certainty is that the lines, pecks, incisions and in-fillings are not natural, that much is definite. When dealing with who, when, why and how, our research is still developing and often promising. However, when it comes to deciphering what this interplay of symbols and markings actually means, whether we can confidently substitute words and numbers and read this as sequential narrative/map, while there is hope Derek can rise to the occasion and ‘crack the code,’ we still harbor substantial doubts. It is our belief that the combination of so many diverse characters and engravings is too cryptic, intelligent and just too hard for the intellect of today’s crop of Homo sapien sapiens. The inclines, proximity, shapes and so many other factors add to the difficulties in ascribing meaning, and by comparison, makes the decoding of the Rosetta Stone analogous to reading “The Cat in the Hat.”

In the meantime, even if any interpretation is beyond the reach of mere mortals, there are two immediate concerns that deserve further attention. A closer inspection of the surface through more powerful magnification and a camera-zoom lens may assist, as too is the measurement of every line, shape and space a task of the highest priority. There may be a repetition in number, ratio, proportion or shape within that is deliberate and adds yet another course to this ancient conversation.

An Inconvenient Truth

Yes this is an extremely inconvenient piece of archaeology that breaks so many rules, in fact nearly all of them, but looking the other way will not make it go away. This is the sixth article on Ros’ rock, with more to come. Our challenge to mainstream outlets like the Australian Museum is simple and justified, isn’t it time that this important part of the Original truth, as inconvenient as it may be, is acknowledged? Or could it be, they just don’t care, or maybe they do?
Just like the polish on the rock, there are two answers to select from, and only one can be right.

“Marked Rock – Case Closed, the “Mystery” is Officially Solved: ”Nothing to do with Aboriginal (sic) People.”Article by Steven & Evan Strong.

“Marked Rock – Case Closed, the “Mystery” is Officially Solved: “Nothing to do with Aboriginal (sic) People.”

By Steven & Evan Strong

Of course the claim we are about to make can never be proven and is certainly a subjective call, and one most experts would readily dispute. We believe that Ros’ rock will dramatically reconfigure the foundation stone upon which Australian history is based. However, the academics from the Australian Museum are not so enamoured by our conclusions and see a much simpler and far more comfortable explanation.

2014-07-24 15.54.10

Not long after Ros’ rock and the Egyptian tablet were premiered in a public presentation on October 1, Ros received a phone call from a resident “academic” speaking on behalf of the Australian Museum. That they even rang her was an interesting opening gambit, as her last name, place of residence or phone number was never written or shared in any media outlet. The representative from the Australian Museum made contact with Ros two weeks after I had rang and also personally approached the museum explaining I was acting on behalf of others and was the only point of contact. What confirmed that my suspicions something a touch devious was afoot, was that Tessa Corkill asked Ros who was the present holder of the rock.

Her response, that the rock is now with us, was met with a sigh and followed up by a change in tactics in order to re-establish authority. Tessa Corkill went to great lengths to denigrate our credentials when reminding Ros of the two cardinal academic sins of which we stand accused, in that we were “not academics,” and in what only compounded our unworthiness, “they believe in the Pleiades.”

Thus clearing away all the scholarly debris, it was time for the officially anointed expert to issue an each-way proclamation. According to the fact-sheet she was reading from, this rock is an African import dropped in the bush before World War 1 by an African tourist or an Australian who had recently been sight-seeing in Africa. Either way one of them was strolling through the bush near Kariong with rock in hand a hundred years ago and accidentally dropped it then walked off. Believe it or not it now gets trickier and even more convoluted, Academic Corkill claims that over the last 100 years over one metre of sandstone eroded and was directly deposited above the rock. She knows nothing of the site from which this rock was extracted, and if she did she would readily concede that this is a geological impossibility and a claim no geologist, not even a 101 student, would propose in any paper or sensible conversation.

Until this point apart from making ridiculous statements on the phone, no harm was done and what she said could be dismissed as obviously ridiculous and simply ignored with a wry smile and shrug of the shoulders. But it gets decidedly worse as our academic began to expand upon her fictional musings on a rock that she has not held and inspected at length or made any enquiries about the researchers who have written five articles. She told Ros that she would be officially informing the Gosford City Council that this engraved rock has nothing to do with Australia, that it “comes from overseas” and our research and sensational findings should be ignored post-haste. Our five papers have the support and contributions of five academics, two with PhDs and another an ex-professor with expertise in geology (and whose reaction, after over an hour holding the rock, will be discussed in this article), yet none of that was referenced or acknowledged. No inspection or consultation was needed in Tessa Corkill’s case, but as unforgivable a dereliction in academic duties her actions and words were, she then stepped over the breach into something that many could suggest reeks of patronising racism.

Corkill then made a disturbing statement when on the phone to Ros, who confided toin me that she found what was said next so offensive and “racist” she was prepared “to go to court-take a lie-detector test.” In Corkill’s opinion, this rock has “nothing to do with Aboriginal (sic) people.” End of story, she did not offer the name of one Original person who endorsed that view, as there were none. It was an off the cuff remark meant to quell Ros’ objections, but it also went a long way towards revealing some underlying motives and obstacles. To make such an outrageous denial of the truth and origin, that this amazing artefact found beneath the surface of Darkinooong land, which obviously was here well before the British Invasion Fleet dropped anchor, is an import is gob-smacking arrogance. To present such an open-ended statement and behalf on a people who you do not represent can only be done after extensive consultation with Original Elders and Custodians versed in the Old Ways, what happened here is offensive to Original protocol and sensibilities and a public apology should be made forthwith.

So there we have it, now that we have been cavalierly dismissed as non-academic Pleiadian propagandists, all that is left on the negotiating table is the official truth as delivered by the appointed academic. Considering that until the late 1940’s Australia was subject to the White Australia Policy, and that particularly applied to all races of a darker complexion of which Africa has a major contributor, the mere notion of a pre-WW1 African tourist casually wandering through the bush near Bambara with such a heavy rock in hand is ridiculous. Why would he bring the rock into bush, and why take it from Africa? How did he manage to sneak into Australia, and being so obviously of the most unacceptable colour and banned from entry, surely he would have been seen before stepping off the boat? The rock weighs over a kilogram and if it was dropped on his foot bones would break, and if not a solid thump on the sandstone floor would be heard, is he both deaf and African?

There are too many unanswered questions wrapped around a proposal that falls short on every level bar one, they have a back-up theory, a second offering just in case the first is found wanting. They simply reverse the geography, parameters and players and remain faithful to the scenes concocted for their first piece of fiction. In Act 2, Scene 1, an Australian tourist went across to Africa pre-WW1 and picked up the rock while holidaying, then brought it back to Australia and kept it in hand while walking through the same bush and dropped it on the ground, leaving none the wiser. Despite the real fact that there was no surge in tourism from Australia to Africa before the first World War, and that the very few that did venture forth were primarily interested in shooting innocent wildlife, and even less of the few had any interest in geology, this is the approved second and final verdict on the rock’s history.

We will make no further comment on this rather insulting response, it is as if they couldn’t even be bothered making up a plausible lie and assumed that any old rubbish will suffice, as long as it is delivered by a suitably qualified “academic.” But sadly the officials are locked into a series of fictional replies. The “academic” openly conceded the technology evident is too sophisticated and therefore came under the jurisdiction of another continent, and that was her base-line. However, once insisting such technical proficiency was never present in this country before Cook, they are wrong and will never get close to the truth and must continue championing tales of an increasingly inferior quality. The reality is that all of these denials are background noise and inconsequential, despite the intransigence the Original truths will continue to be revealed.

The Rock has been Identified

The rock is most certainly not local to the area, nor is it from elsewhere in the Universe, it is actually a very hard river chert. The photographs taken were a touch deceptive, in that it heightened the colour to such an extent that what seemed to be black was actually brown, and it really isn’t even a dark brown chocolate, but more like a milk chocolate. What was interesting is that the very first suggestion Professor X tendered was river chert, and the same verdict as to the make of this rock was given within seconds of sighting and holding the rock.
I do remember some of our readers were getting frustrated that we would not be more definite in declaring a geology, but we consistently made the point that we do not have the expertise to be that definite and until an on-site inspection by a geologist of stature took place, we were not going to budge from our fluctuating ‘maybe stance.’

Too many Questions

Professor X spent nearly all our time together with the rock in his hand. It never left him for over an hour. His examination and wonder never ceased, there were things he could see that did not fit into any explanation. This rock is, as he remarked on many occasions, a “mystery.”

2014-07-24 15.53.43 - Copy

 

In total there were five features discussed that held our attention and triggered questions rarely considered in polite academic circles. The most prominent being the 44 lines engraved into the three faces of the rock. Professor X was adamant that if we went to the closest hardware store and bought a chisel with a steel blade, it would not be able to leave any mark on this rock. If a blade/chisel of incredible delicacy and strength was used, three different widths of incision can be seen. On each face the general direction of engravings/cuts are not coordinated when compared to the other sides. That lack of a commonality in alignment convinced John that there is no chance this is due to natural agents.

In what really had our adviser animated was his discovery of one much fainter line which he claimed was not only much older and thus this rock was ‘worked’ twice. What only added to the intrigue was the evidence of polishing on not only the younger, but older cut. Professor X gave no date, he wouldn’t be that bold yet, but we suspect a solid entry in the five figure column is a bare minimum date.

What caught us unawares and a touch embarrassed for not seeing what was literally there right in front of our eyes, what was at some time in the past a hole or depression in this rock was packed with an aggregate of foreign minerals/rocks, then secured back into the rock. Once pointed out, it was obvious that this spherical inset (6mmx4mm) has a much greyer tinge, and that the lip of the original rock can still be felt, along with the gentle depression that sits below the surrounding level of the original rock. Now highlighted, we can see why our guide was so animated. To pack any substance into a hole is not a great feat nor a technological anomaly, but to find a way to ensure it would adhere in perpetuity to one of the hardest rocks available is something else again, and a fact and exotic feature Professor X returned to throughout our meeting.

The next observation made was ours, it would be impossible not to notice that a portion of the right hand-side of Side 3 is missing. The triangular section of rock which we estimate 7mms wide, 10 mm high and 35 mm long, has been removed. The resulting slope is not smooth and I can identify what seems to be seven separate impact/percussion points, six on the top row and the seventh below the sixth making that area the widest part of what was chiselled off the rock. We are convinced that the chisel was applied from left to right, and this contribution only expands the ancient tool kit. The larger blade was not meant to inscribe and create fine points of intersection, but smash and remove. The surface is bumpy and each impact mark is consistent in dimensions, clear and distinct and there was no attempt made to smooth the surface, or is there evidence of any engraving or pecking. All we can deduce is that this refashioning, thus creating a fifth artificial side, was of importance in passing on another message hidden within the angles, shapes and interface created.

It is for this reason, and many others already discussed, such is the complexity of factors, synchronicity of alignments and delicacy of cut, we are very disposed towards Richard and Judith Gabriel’s belief there is a micro-message that is also part of a subtle multi-layered narrative/map/ prophecy and esoteric riddle. In that mystical vein, the last point discussed was probably the one that interested Professor X the least. He thought it was possible this was done, but did not seem to place much importance upon why or what.

With that section of rock removed it creates a perfect grip, ready-made, the thumb sits at the top pointing in the same direction as the three open vertical lines on Side 3. Side 1 sits in the palm and the third finger also has a slight depression to rest upon. So perfect is the balance manufactured with thumb and third finger positioned, the other three fingers can pull away and it makes no difference and adds no discomfort. We believe that this is too deliberate to be accidental and feel it was deliberately made to be held in the right hand with the placement prescribed by the depressions fashioned into the rock. But for what purpose?

It seems to have been made to be pointed, but which side up, or is it both? When you place Side 3 in the palm another depression, which again appears artificial, is the most comfortable place to rest the thumb, and once again another small channel is set at the best angle to accommodate the third finger. With the same balance and digits in attendance, and another three lines from Side 1 pointing in the same direction as the first outstretched finger, the balance feels exactly the same. As before, the other three fingers serve no apparent functional purpose and bear no weight. Both sides, same grip, and in each case we can see evidence that the positioning of the fingers and thumb was prescribed by the ancients. If the way this sacred rock was held was of such importance, what was coming in and going out? Is this yet another dimension to this rock that is yet to be understood?

And that was the upshot of Professor’ X’s inspection in hand, he resolved one uncertainty in relation to the classification of the rock, but there are so many questions yet to be answered. He added to the tally of areas to research and openly conceded that this was indeed the genuine article. What we are yet to understand is what this means, it is a “mystery.” That word was used by our guide in geology more than once, and we do remember that towards the end of our meeting he shared with us an account of the paper he wrote when sitting for his PhD.

Two Mysteries Still unsolved

This certainly was an unexpected tale of a dichotomy in ancient species taxonomy of which we knew nothing. He wrote a paper on an organism that could not be satisfactorily categorised, it was either a plant or an animal and our adviser wrote his paper advocating his understanding that it was a plant. He confided with us that now he is not so sure, but it was a mystery then and still is. So too, he added in concluding his anecdote, is the rock he now held the equal in mystery to the enigmatic topic of his paper that gained him his doctorate.

As our meeting came to a close Professor X put on his university ‘face’ and ‘hat’ and stared directly at Evan, who was taking notes of our conversation and advice given. His parting comments were the slowest delivered and he watched as Evan recorded every word as spoken, making it very clear that this was his summation of events.

“The rock is not ironstone. This rock came from a river and is a well-polished slightly jointed block hard sedimentary rock. The in-filling took place sometime after and I have no idea how the marks were made.”

There are so many unknowns, outside identifying the rock as being chert nothing is certain. The engravings on the three faces are definitely linked, as to whether they connect into one large map as two of the researchers in our group suspect, or is a combination of map and narrative as we suggest is yet to be determined. Whether it is a map with applications on Earth or elsewhere is another of the unknowns. Whatever or if ever there is an agreed interpretation, there is so much more to unravel. How it was done, and with the assistance of what type of technology is still a long way off, but amongst all the questions yet to be resolved one stands as first among equals. Why is it that officials and academics are absent through apathy? They know the engraved rock exists, we made sure of that by approaching government and private media outlets, a university in Sydney, and of course, the only organisation that did respond on the sly, the Australian Museum.

The answer to this inertia, the jaded defence of the easiest and most reassuring routes is merely par for the course. Our last observation in this article will certainly gain no converts within the many who refuse to look or engage, but it was observed by others who also are not “academics” when the rock was first shown to the public and deserves consideration. We have already mentioned the presence of two sets of artificial depressions which we feel were formed so that the rock can be held in a prescribed way. As asked earlier in this article, what purpose could this holding-pattern serve?

A definitive response is well beyond our abilities, but there are clues and indications. There is quite a deal of talk about the reactions of individuals to this rock that sit well outside the realms of modern-day science and falls into the embrace of what is mistakenly called the ‘paranormal.’ The mere mention of events and reactions deposited in the ‘twilight zone’ of mainstream science, for many is the ultimate condemnation. Quite simply, if it is outside the province of test tube, microscope or laboratory, then whatever is alleged will never earn the ‘official’ tick of approval.

But in this case and artefact new rules are already at play, so why not continue down the same unfamiliar path and embrace the mystical elements of this rock and see what eventuates? The rock is of great spiritual and cultural significance to the Original people, and there are messages engraved into the surface of the rock, and then there is what lays within. From this esoteric vantage point we intend to investigate two areas, one of which we can already answer.

Does this rock contain or relay an energy/power/force? Yes! What is this energy? We have no idea, but with more time and guidance …

“Circumnavigating the World in an Original Figure Eight” (Article) By Dr Derek Cunningham with Steven & Evan Strong

Circumnavigating the World in an Original Figure Eight

By Dr Derek Cunningham with Steven & Evan Strong

Before embarking upon our fifth paper reviewing the newly discovered Australian Ros engraved rock we feel obliged to first address a criticism levelled at us by some who have already voiced their disappointment. Normally we prefer to be bold in tendering opinions and conclusions before all the evidence is in, but on this occasion it was a task beyond our capacities and outside the reach of any other archaeology we have previously examined.

We began this particular journey quite literally ‘dancing in the dark,’ as there is no accredited expert, academic, course or textbook to consult. The reality was that our opening articles were more a plea for assistance than a report on the engraved rock. In that respect those articles have served their purpose, we have now been joined by five researchers, of which three have Ph.D’s in overlapping fields. But it doesn’t end there, photographs have now been sent to us of rocks that have previously lay hidden in private collections. These rocks from other continents show in some cases similarities in coloration and the style of engravings, and some of the owners have also now offered to send their prize artefacts in the hope that they will add more light and direction to our journey.

Despite our initial reluctance to declare with absolute certainty that the Ros’ stone contains evidence of a worldwide civilization, direct comparisons to other engravings and other archaeological sites has now made us confident enough to present some tentative opinions as to the geology (where the rock came from) and what the engravings mean.

When Dr. Derek Cunningham’s contribution towards understanding what was engraved on Ros’ rock first came our way, I was at a loss in deciding whether it was too good to be true or the final key in a search that began close to five years ago. It made no difference either way. Derek not only has consistently studied multiple artefacts around the world, he had also identified a specific non-linear shape (in fact the only circular pattern on the stone) as being another astronomical symbol. Impressing us deeply, the offered explanation links directly to a description provided years earlier to us by Ramindjeri spokesperson Karno Walker.

The oval shape on the stone it is argued to relate to a shape drawn by ancient Original navigators as they sailed around the globe – Dr Cunningham’s interpretation overlaps this argument by stating that the single oval is consistent with the oval being half of a very specific figure 8 that is drawn by many ancient cultures.
What Derek could never know was how pivotal any mention of a figure 8 is to all our research. It is, quite literally, our starting point, and without this number nothing would have eventuated. Before presenting any of Derek’s new work, we need to backtrack five years to the first time I heard talk of Original mariners circumnavigating the oceans of the world in a figure eight. Members of the Ramindjeri Tribe, in particular Karno Walker, were aware of the contents and theoretical base that underpinned our first three books. The seminal shortcoming of what we had written to that point was that we had so little on the ground archaeology of our own. To be honest we had a theoretical base that was lacking in rocks, artefacts and sites.

Once accepting their call, ceremony and receiving a banner from which to research (Wirritjin-Black-fella White-fella Dreaming), we have entered a transitional stage in our research. It has been literally ‘raining Original archaeology’ since my first introduction into Old Ways, so much so that we now have a backlog with a waiting list spanning back over a year.

And it was this talk of circumnavigating the globe that was the incentive to travel thousands of kilometres to meet the Ramindjeri, it is that same figure eight which set us on the path we now travel. It made so much sense, if indeed as Original Elders insist, that “all peoples of the world come from us,” then the Original people had to sail from Australia to an assortment of destinations throughout the world.

We have already discussed in some detail Original artefacts, genes and bones found in India, Malaysia, Japan, Siberia, Spain and throughout the American continent, which certainly adds weight to Karno’s belief ancient Original mariners sailed the oceans. However, the missing piece in this puzzle is an actual map marking out the sea-routes taken.

Derek has begun to fill in that gap. Consistent to the approach Richard and Judith champion, Derek has scrutinised the surface even more closely and is confident he has found that same figure-eight sea route Karno first alerted us to. Derek had already found a commonality of inclination and slope between Ros’ rock and for the first time has shown that many artefacts and prominent archaeological sites spread throughout the world are linked to the exact same ancient design – Stonehenge, The Great Pyramids, the Atacama Giant, the geometrical symbols at Lascaux and Chauvet Caves all appear to show the same consistent archaic writing with a set of very specific astronomical values converted simply to an angular array.

What is less known is the non-circular shape of numerous stone circles found around the world, such as Longs Meg and Callanish Stone Circle appears to link to a very specific shape of the Milky Way, which is the shape the Milky Way takes when it is drawn onto a Mercator-based map of earth.

Here the discussion taken from Derek’s recent book The Long Journey (400,000 Years of Stone Age Science) shows that all the world’s major archaeological sites link to an ancient astronomical map. This map combines elements of the archaic writing style to a map of the stars that is expanded three-fold and redrawn back onto earth so that the stars start to take the shape of the Earth’s continents. In doing so the produced map not only explains the origin for multiple stones with similar linear patterns etched on them, the data also explains the location of the world’s most impressive ancient archaeological sites, it also explains the various myths and legends told by many ancient cultures, the most famous being the Greek myths surrounding the constellations.

Linking to the description of the figure 8 the Milky Way now plots a helical structure over Earth, with the cross-point marking the religious sites of the Himalayas. Within the UK the non-circular shape of stone circles in the UK matches the shape of one-half of the drawn Helix, with in one specific case the east west line dissecting the famous stone circle matching the direction drawn by the ecliptic on the star map.Capture
With this prior data acting as a template Dr Cunningham thus overlayed the shape of the drawn Milky Way that was drawn four years prior to our first published data on Ros’ Stone. This template has been used previously with great success to analyse the layout of the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge Stone Circle, and Callanish Stone Circle. When the template is applied to the newly discovered Ros’ Stone, the result is overall a good match.
In the first part of the study of the egg-shaped pattern found etched on Ros’ stone an attempt was made to align it to the helical structure of the drawn Milky Way and to then compare the angles extracted from two very short lines found within the drawn pattern. Here it can be seen that the values drawn are consistent with the 6.511 draconic month period between eclipse semesters.

 

This is important in the context of this particular study, as this 6.511 degree value is the exact same value by which the Celestial Equator was offset in the drawn astronomical map 4 years ago.
In the next image, the stone at the same angle shown above places the shape of the drawn oval over the shape drawn by the Milky Way, the exact same drawing used previously to explain the significance of the locations of the various Himalayan religious centers.Capture 2

There is insufficient space here to describe the entire background surrounding the drawn stellar map and how it links to ancient myths and legends. These results are discussed in substantial detail within Dr. Derek Cunningham’s book. The key point here, and in this is by far the most important result, is that a fixed theory that uses the exact same astronomical data each time once again is able to explain a discovered artefact that is etched with both linear lines and in this case a single egg-shaped image. In this case the proposed theory is unique in that it provides not only an explanation for the location for the stone, but also the same explanation that described the importance of the location where Ros’ stone was uncovered can also explain the markings found on the stone. Finally and perhaps of equal importance for this specific site, the analysis put forward here is based on an entirely new analysis of the structure of the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

As stated in the prior two studies Ros’ Stone has three sides etched with linear lines. Within the astronomical theory the lines on archaic stones are drawn to represent – using angles – the astronomical values used by astronomers to predict eclipse events and to measure time. There are the circa 1 degree daily angular movement of Earth as it travels around the Sun 13.66/27.32 day sidereal month, the 9.3/18.6 year lunar cycle, the 6.511 draconic (nodal) month period between eclipses (this equals 6 synodic months), the 11 or 33 day difference between the lunar and solar years (as there exists an eleven da difference it is only after three years that astronomers are provided the first potential reset point), and the 5.1 degree angle of the moon’s orbit relative to earth’s ecliptic plane
As before the third side is found to match this theory

And for comparison here are the two other (re-published from our prior articles).

Capture 5Image showing side 2 of the stone.

Here the value 23.4 degrees equals a range of astronomical values for example the latitude of the tropics, the angle of earth’s tilt.

49 out of the 60 analysed lines (82%) align to the standard list, and 56 out of 60 (93%) align to angles previously seen on other archaic stones.

New Contributions
What needs to be factored into the confirmation of Karno’s claim is that we are working with another researcher who has been analysing ocean currents and historical accounts and even though his work is far from complete, he too has become familiar with the same figure eight configuration. Confident that the chances are very high that a least one, and more than likely two sides of the rock are claimed to be maps of the oceans or stars, finding the actual shape of the path taken is in keeping with the message on the rock we have interpreted so far.

Undeniably some critics who wilfully totally neglect to even begin a basic search of the now substantial body of evidence showing entirely consistent data see for example prior work undertaken on the Sacsayhuamán temple complex, and the geometric Lascaux paintings will still allege Dr. Derek Cunningham is mistaken and merely a maverick straying off on a tangent that has no substance. But if so, there are others more than willing to join in his research. Dr. Reinoud de Jonge has been researching all manner of evidence that contradicts so much of mainstream history and is equally convinced that there are maps with latitude and longitude highlighting important locations frequented by ancient Egyptians engraved into this rock. Dr. Reinoud has been researching many aspects of ancient history with a particular emphasis on ancient Egypt, and for all intents and purposes has independently come to the same conclusion: we are dealing with maps.

Dr. de Jonge was very specific and Pacific when analysing what he feels is a map on Side 1. “I believe the “horizontal lines” are latitude lines … from top to bottom, and the other lines provide important sailing routes (directions) in Melanesia. I see the SE sailing routes to the islands of New Caledonia (+33), to the New Hebrides (+9.3), and to the Fidzji Islands (27.32. 13.66, -18.6). Sydney is at the left hand side, again. An ancient, interesting artifact! At the far right side the sailing routes to the Samoa Islands are shown, as well as the routes to the Gilbert Islands and Ratak Islands above the equator.”

So there we have it, two academics and another at an earlier stage in his research, have all arrived at their interpretations from different perspectives yet share one common number (8) and continent.

Once again we must tender our apologies to those seeking certainty as this is still a work in progress. However this is clearly another step forward, but there are many more to take before we can cobble together a reasonable understanding. The next taken in our quest to determine the significance and messages engraved into this rock leads us back to another seemingly unresolved geological conundrum, of which there has been one fascinating development.

The Rock that “Does not Look Natural for the Place.”
In trying to establish the make and source of this rock we have previously canvassed and dismissed a wide variety of possible candidates and came up empty or less than convinced. From our perspective any lingering issues as to what and where the stone comes from no longer applied from the moment we first sighted Derek’s most recent offering. We alone have had the privilege of sighting and handling the engraved artefact. None of the other researchers have so far seen the stone, thus any provided information is best provided blind, and then only after the researcher has sent his theory the stone is tested. This was the approach used for Dr. Cunningham’s astronomical alignment test. Now Dr Cunningham has provided a possible solution to the source of the stone. Remnants from meteors typically are not brown, but it appears that if they are sufficiently old a chemical change will occur where the surface crust present on the meteor will brown with time. Shown below is an example of such a meteor remnant.

Capture 6

At this point Dr. Derek Cunningham states that the next step must now be to analyse the chemical composition of the surface to better determine the exact origin of this stone, and how it obtained its unusual coloration.

Professor X also agrees and has not ruled out that the rock is a naturally occurring stone modified deliberately by high temperature, a stone with an off-world origin, simply a natural stone modified naturally by high temperature or perhaps river chert. “I cannot say anything more about the Kariong rock other than I cannot identify it with any degree of certainty … however this rock “does not look natural for the place.” Of course nothing is absolute, and until either of these experts can personally inspect the rock, and that is about to happen, we will not make a final statement. Before that inspection everything is possible, all the way back to first nomination Professor X made, when suggesting the rock could be a very hard type of chert laying in a river-bed hardened by the abrasion and pressure of running water.
Upon Closer Inspection
Preliminary in nature and tentative in setting further direction we have made a few measurements, comparisons and tallies that may be of some assistance in making sense of this rock. We are certain that the percentage calculated and repeated is something of immense importance then and now, but at this stage all we can conclude is that the technology used in engraving is sophisticated and the script has mathematical symmetry, intention and will make a fascinating read, if only someone could find the ‘how to manual’ with instructions.
There may be a sizable degree of uncertainty ahead in our research, but at the rock-face some observations and measurements lead on to some rather interesting maths.

There are 10 pecks/dots, 44 engraved lines of varying width (Side 1, 23. Side 2, 7. Side 3, 15.), 54 points of intersections that create 74 shapes, which could in total constitute no less than 172 pieces of information. That tally doesn’t take into account many deliberate nuances which may include the length and variation in width of cut which is particularly evident on Side 1, the spacing of gaps between the connecting lines on Side 2, the placement and width of each peck/dot, and many contributing elements we are yet to find.

As for the complexity of information shared and the manner of presentation, our quest to unravel this cryptic load began with a percentage comparison between the surface area of Side 1 and Side 3, and we did the same again when comparing the number of lines on the same two sides.
Side 1 is larger than Side 3 and has a flat rectangular area that was engraved upon which measures 7.2 sq. cms. and has 23 lines, while Side 3 has an area of 4.69 sq. cms. and 15 lines. What is either an incredibly rare coincidence or evidence of a deliberate yet subtle arrangement at multiple levels, both comparison rates came out at 65%. The surface area of Side 3 is 65% that of Side 1, so too the number of engravings on Side 3 is 65% the quantity of those engraved on Side 1. To claim this is a random event, when dealing with archaeology that is so obviously a mystery, runs counter to everything else on the rock.

Capture 7

But there is more in synchronicity and on display, the three sides with engraved lines and pecks/dots exhibit an exactness of interplay in alignment and sequence in narrative that is quite sublime. The diagram we have compiled, even at first glance, supplies good reason as to why we have sequenced the rock-faces, simply because the engravings in Side 2 flows out of Side 1 and points towards Side 3. What is deceptive is that it is only when held in the hand can anyone appreciate the precision and strength of blade, and a precision in placement of each of the seven lines on the side that seems, at first glance, barely worth a second-look. All seven engraved lines are exact to the millimetre in connecting to another line on Side 1 or Side 3. Some lines link up to another line while others to intersection points, everything was done to a plan with immense skill using technology that breaks every …
Waiting for Original Guidance
The most compelling reason as to why we have not been forthcoming with our customary fervour in championing an opinion substantiated by archaeology and inference, is simply because we have no choice and are not at liberty to do so. We have never been hesitant in stepping forward irrespective of the ‘collateral damage,’ but it must be remembered we only stride forward into the breach once given Original guidance. That mandatory consent has not been given, and until Original Elders, Custodians or Spirits of the Old Ways have inspected this rock and any associated Lore, all we can do is assume and hope for the best.

Knowing that Original Custodians of Lore have the only direct link to the ancient history of this continent, we are still prepared to offer a provisional take on some of the proceedings we are investigating. In doing so we also reserve the right to add or subtract at our Original guide’s leisure after all meetings and inspections are completed.

For us the pivotal truth so far uncovered relates to the Original fact that the rock is extremely sacred, “very, very ancient” and was used in ceremonies. No less relevant, in fact probably more so, is the dominance in Original mythology and history of the off-world destination of the Pleiades. When factoring our knowledge that there are Elders who rightly make claim to be custodians of rocks that were not created on this planet, all of these accounts suggest that the reason that the technology is so advanced by any earth-bound standards is because it came from elsewhere in the cosmos.

Derek is confident that the markings on the rock are elements that constitute remnants of an ancient world civilisation. Both Derek and Raymond believe that the engravings on this rock represent the measurement of degrees, possibly latitude and longitude, and were used in earthly pursuits. Whether marking out the passage across the seas or skies is a difficult call to make at this stage, but one Evan and I are willing to make. Even before Derek spoke of detecting astronomical values on the rock we were of the opinion that this engraved narrative was as much about where these star beings came from in the distant past, as it was about who did it and what it means. Given further time and consideration our opinion may change, but as things stand at present we believe this rock exhibits a technology that cannot be part of mainstream traditional historical accounts involving any type of hominid, whether sapien or Neanderthal. That being the case it seems this is yet another example of an Original problem that has an Original solution, look into the skies for an answer and apply an ancient truth: ‘as on top so below.’

Our next article will be the culmination of the five that preceded and will include even more data that hopefully it will resolve any lingering doubts or questions. Now is the time to call upon the ultimate authority on all such matters. Once the proper Original Elders and Custodians pass the judgment upon the rock and all that is associated with it, we will finally have the whole truth and nothing but the Original truth.
