This is just a brief follow-up to Short and Sweet #1, with a few more interesting connections left by commenters about the places mentioned in it.
Peter Champoux, the author of the “serpent lei” that a viewer mentioned between the middle of the Bermuda Triangle in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean and the Great Serpent Mound in Peebles, Ohio, left a comment that it continues on to Lake Itasca in Minnesota, which is the headwater of the Mississippi River…
…and he also mentioned there were meteor strikes on this ley-line, and you can visit his website, http://www.geometryofplace.com, for more information about the meteor strikes, and many other things…
…and he also has a YouTube Channel for those who are interested in learning more about Peter’s work.
SF replied to the comment with Peter’s information that he worked on a pipeline project over the winter that went right through this specific area of Minnesota…
…and he observed in the years he’s done this kind of work that there is a common thread of Indian Reservations and land formations beyond a coincidence in relation to oil and gas exploration.
Another viewer commented that the ley line leading to the Great Serpent mound also passes through Huntington, West Virginia, near the location of the Mothman Prophecies.
Huntington is geographically close to Point Pleasant, at a straight-line distance of 34-miles, or 54-kilometers, apart, which was the setting of “The Mothman Prophecies,” the 2002 supernatural horror-mystery film starring Richard Gere as John Klein, a Washington Post columnist who researched the legend of the Mothman, where there had been sightings of an unusual creature and unexplained phenomenon, and said to have been based on a true story from the late 1960s.
It is important to note that the Great Serpent Mound in Peebles, Ohio is only a straight-line distance of 63-miles, or 102-kilometers, from Huntington, and 69-miles, or 110-kilometers, from Point Pleasant.
There are two other things that come to my mind from past research regarding Huntington, West Virginia.
One is that Huntington is the location of Marshall University, the Old Main Hall on the top of which was said to have been completed in 1868; which reminds me in appearance of the Westcott Building at Florida State University in Tallahassee, said to have been completed in 1910; the Benedictine Hall at the former St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee, Oklahoma, now the Green Campus of Oklahoma Baptist University, said to have been completed and opened in 1915 on the bottom left; and Trinity College at Cambridge University in England on the bottom right, which was established in 1546 by King Henry VIII.
The other is that there is only one, Camden Park, of thirteen remaining trolley parks that remain open in the United States in Huntington.
It was said to have been established as a “picnic spot” by the Camden Interstate Railway Company in 1903, which was a street railway and interurban system that ran between Huntington, West Virginia, and Ashland, Kentucky, and which by 1916 was the Ohio Valley Electric Railway, who became new owners of the park.
Where did all the trolleys go? And why did they leave?
Today, Camden Park is in the 4th-generation of family-ownership, and the only operating amusement park in West Virginia.
Next, going back down the alignment, from northwest to southeast, was a comment from Sarah saying that Pilot Mountain in North Carolina was nearby Mt. Airy, which was the hometown of Andy Griffith.
Basically, it’s “Mayberry.”
And someone replied to her comment: “Yes! Was looking for this comment!! ‘Goin’ over to Mount Pilot’ or something to that effect – said on the show all the time.
Pilot Mountain was the inspiration for the fictional Mt. Pilot in “The Andy Griffith Show,” for all of those old enough to remember Andy, the lovable, widowed Sheriff of Mayberry, his kooky deputy Barney Fife, his matronly Aunt Bea, his young son Opie, and his girlfriend Miss Ellie.
Hey, I named all of those characters from memory!
So back-tracking down the alignment from the original video, we come to Wilmington, North Carolina.
I had mentioned that Wilmington is the home of EUE/Screen Gems, the largest domestic television and movie production facility outside of California, and a viewer pointed out that Bruce Lee’s son, Brandon, died after being shot in the abdomen by a gun with defective blank ammunition at the Wilmington movie studios on the set of “The Crow” in March of 1993.
Interesting, I just started researching the year 1993 today for my the next part of my “Seeing History with New Eyes since 1945” series.
I will have to go back and add this to my research topics for 1993.
Another viewer, Josh, lived in Wilmington for ten years, where he used to surf right in front of Ft. Fisher in the cove, and a spot next to it that was a coquina rock reef at the southside of Kure Beach where Ft. Fisher is located…
He said he would observe shells and different fossilized corals and rocks that still have color and wonder how could that be millions of years old?
He said that Cape Fear is 5- miles, or 8-kilometers, south at Bald Head Island, and Frying Pan Shoals there is a hot-spot for megalodon teeth.
He also mentioned the Airlie Gardens in Wilmington,next to the intercoastal waterway.
The Airlie Gardens were said to have been created starting in 1886 by the Pembroke Jones family, and named after their family home in Scotland, and designed by German landscape architect Rudolf Topel as a lush flowing Southern garden with azaleas, camellias, magnolias, palms, and wisteria.
The Airlie Oak is on the garden grounds is believed to be 500-years-old, and in 2007 was designated the largest live oak in North Carolina at the time.
There were several other comments from “Short and Sweet #1” that I would like to mention.
A commenter mentioned the sphinxes at the Stanford Mausoleum in regards to the two sphinxes shown…
…one of which was in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the other at Woodruff Place in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Stanford Mausoleum is located in the northwest part of the Stanford University campus in California, and holds the remains of the Leland Stanford family.
Leland Stanford was a former California governor, senator, railroad president, and the founder, along with his wife, of Stanford University, named in memory of their only son, Leland.
Stanford was one of the Central Pacific Railroad’s Big Four, known as the Nabobs, or Nobs, where the name for Nob Hill came from.
The mausoleum has sphinxes on the front and the back.
The two sphinxes on the front are called Egyptian-style, male, sphinxes…
…and the ones on the back are called Greek-style, female, sphinxes.
Now, on over to the Wirral Peninsula and Liverpool to look at some of the comments made in response to this topic in “Short and Sweet #1.”
LL, a viewer who lives on Park Road South in Birkenhead…
…just a short-walk from the Swiss bridge in Birkenhead Park…
…said that Merseyside and the Wirral peninsula is special place.
He said the river Dee to the west of tbe peninsula subsides to reveal sinking mud stretching miles and walkable sand…
…and the Tobacco building, formally known as the Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse, in the North Liverpool docks was said to be the largest bricked building in terms of area on earth, built 130 years ago, in 1901, with over 1 million bricks and was said to have been built in 1 year, with 27-million bricks, 30,000 panes of glass, and 8,000 tons of steel used in its construction.
The warehouse fell into disuse and disrepair in the 1980s, with trade declining through Liverpool.
The tobacco building has been transformed into luxury apartments in the present-day.
The viewer from Birkenhead also mentioned the Williamson tunnels, in the Edge Hill area of Liverpool, have been a mystery to him, as the narrative of why they were built doesn’t make sense.
The Williamson Tunnels were said to have been built under the direction of tobacco merchant Joseph Williamson between 1810 and 1840, and to this day the purpose of the work remains unclear.
The majority of what are called “tunnels” are comprised of brick or stone vaulting over excavations in the underlying sandstone, as the tunnels were said to have gradually become in-filled with rubble in the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries, with excavations starting in 1995.
The excavations revealed a large network of tunnels, chambers and voids.
Another viewer, James C, mentioned Ormskirk, which translates to “Serpent – Dragon Church,” which is near Liverpool, on what is described as the sloping ground of a ridge in the center of the West Lancashire Ridge, and said to be a planned community dating back to the 13th-century.
…and the oldest building in Ormskirk is said to be the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, with an unknown exact age.
There were other topics James C. said to look into are:
One was the Watkins Tower at Wembley Park, also known as Watkins Folly, was described as a partly-completed iron-lattice tower that was designed to surpass the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Never completed, and demolished in 1907, its location became the site Wembley Stadium, the English National Football ground.
The old Wembley Stadium opened in 1923…
…only to be demolished in 2002, to make way for the new Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2007.
The other topic he mentioned, which looks to be a tie-in to the ending topic in “Short and Sweet #1,” which was Michael Jackson’s song “Stranger in Moscow” from the “HIStory” album.
He mentioned a single called “Justified and Ancient” by the British band The KLF that was featured on their 1991 album “The White Room.”
The original name of “The KLF” band was “The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu” or “JAM.”
The original name of the band was taken from “The Illuminatus! Trilogy,” a series of three novels by American authors Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson published in 1975.
Kind of a weird name choice not to have any meaning!
I brought-up the real possibility at the end of “Short and Sweet #1” that the truth about our world and its history is frequently shared in music, movies, television, visual arts, and even literature, in a form which the real meanings are obscured so we are not aware, at least on a conscious level, that something hidden is being communicated with us.
Many thanks to everyone who took the time to comment and make suggestions, not only about these topics, but many others that I am compiling in a list to research for the videos in this new series.
