There were so many interesting comments that came up from viewers relating to the places and subjects mentioned in “Short and Sweet #7,” that I have decided to do a follow-up to it in its own post, and delve into the subjects I had planned for this one in the next one, which will include, among other things, photographs viewers have shared with me in their journeys and explorations close to where they live.
In the last post, I mentioned the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and other historical speedways that no longer exist, and the idea that these racing circuits originally functioned as electrical circuitry, power generators, and/or particle accelerators on the Earth’s original energy grid system.
ME commented that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was originally paved in all red brick…
…which he pointed out is highly conductive.
The Indianapolis Speedway is nicknamed “The Brickyard,” and there still to this day is a strip of the original brick at the Start-Finish line, which the winning racer ceremonially kisses after the race.
Another viewer BBB mentioned the “Circuit of the Americas” Grand Prix Racetrack in Austin, Texas, and home to the “Formula One United States Grand Prix…
…the Indy Car Classic…
…and the Motorcycle Grand Prix of the Americas.
The racing circuit is almost 3.5-miles, or 5.5-kilometers, in length, and was built starting in 2010.
It bills itself as the ultimate destination for racing and entertainment…
…and is near the Austin-Bergstrom International airport, related to which there is a recurring of pattern of airports and racing circuits in very close proximity to each other all over the world…
BBB said that the racetrack has this creepy-looking observation tower that looks like a snake head coming up out of a basket.
What’s really interesting to me about that snake imagery is what the “Circuit of the Americas” complex looks like from above, where there is clearly an eye-shape that is part of the complex that looks like that shape of a snake, or reptile, eye.
The Germania Insurance 360-degree Amphitheatre for big-name entertainment events is situated between the eye-shape and the Observation Tower, at which it is situated at the base.
Nothing to see here…right?
TN left a comment about what was known as the Beltsville Speedway in Laurel, Maryland, for which we are told ground was broken in 1964, and it was closed permanently in 1978.
He indicated it was modelled after the Daytona Speedway, which has annually held the Daytona 500, the premier race in NASCAR, since 1959.
After the Beltsville Speedway in Laurel was closed in 1978, the land was turned into the location for the Capitol Technology University…
…which is close to Baltimore/Washington International Airport, and Fort Meade, which is home, to several major Intelligence agencies, including, but not limited to…
…the National Security Agency.
I highlighted the Indianapolis Union Station in the last post, to which I added the one in Louisville and Cincinnati for comparison of their grandeur and location relative to each other.
TL commented that the Cincinnati Union Station looked like the Hall of Justice in the Super Friends cartoon in the 1960s and 1970s, which was an excellent catch…
…because the cartoon’s Hall of Justice was said to have been inspired by the Cincinnati Union Station.
Someone else suggested I should take a look at the St. Louis Union Station.
Once gain, the distances between the legs of the triangles between these four major cities with the incredible architecture of these Union Stations, are still remarkably close to each other in a geometric configuration, considering what we have been led to believe in our historical narrative was seemingly random settlement and construction.
This time I calculated the distance between them using address-to-address instead of city-to-city, which I did in the last post.
And ONGO was curious if Toronto’s union station happened to be missing its tower… saying the interior looks the same, but no tower of its own?
Interesting to note that the CN Tower, though, is located close to it!
The Toronto Union Station has a style of architecture which reminds me of the original Pennsylvania Station in New York City, which was said to have been built between 1904 and 1910 and demolished between 1963 and 1968.
I also mentioned what you can find in Holliday Park in Indianapolis, and I got too much feedback about Indianapolis, and other Indiana cities, to include here, like these Indianapolis and Indiana suggestions from MO…
…who also sent me these photos he took recently of “The Ruins” at Holliday Park.
Keep in mind, the official narrative tells us this was once a facade of the St. Paul building in Manhattan; and that it was transported to Indianapolis as the result of a winning entry in a design contest; and that the winning designer, Elmer Taflinger, and the city, spent the next 20-years constructing his vision for “The Ruins” in Holliday Park.
The red arrows in the bottom right point to the man and little girl in the photo for comparison of their size to that of “The Ruins.”
There is one other place near Holliday Park that I would like to mention from viewers.
Broad Ripple Village is one of Indianapolis’ seven-designated cultural districts.
Established in 1837, today it is best-known for being a socially, economically, and ethnically-diverse neighborhood, filled with art galleries; specialty shops; restaurants; and night clubs.
I am very interested in Broad Ripple’s location on a U-shaped bend, known as an “oxbow” of what is known as the White River; its connection to the Central Canal; its connection to the railroad; and the trolley line and amusement park in its history.
We are taught these river shapes are natural occurrences…
…but these exact same river shapes are found all over the world…including London on the River Thames.
The Central Canal was said to have been constructed in Indianapolis starting in 1836, and that water was first drawn into the Central Canal by the feeder dam on the White River in Broad Ripple starting in 1839.
This is a 1909 postcard of the dam.
So on the one-hand, we are told that life in America in the 1830s was largely rustic and full of social ills in need of reform…
…and on the other hand, we are told the North American Canal Age of canal-building was dated from 1790 to 1855.
Same thing with the construction of railroads starting in the same period, and simultaneously the railroads were already making the canals they were constructing obsolete according to the historical narrative.
Only eight-miles of the Central Canal within Indianapolis were completed, starting at Broad Ripple. It was originally intended to connect the Wabash and Erie Canal with the Ohio River…
…but construction was said to have stopped in 1839 because of financial difficulties due to the Panic of 1837, which was said to have touched off a major depression which lasted until the mid-1840s.
This is a view of the Central Canal, with cut-and-shaped large stones, and the Monon railroad bridge crossing over it, on the left, and on the right is a photo for comparison of an ancient megalithic stone wall in Delphi, Greece.
Here’s another view of the large stonework of the Central Canal from Broad Ripple’s Rainbow Bridge.
The Monon Trail used to be the Monon rail-line between Indianapolis and Delphi, Indiana, that was abandoned in 1987, and which was part of a larger rail-line that connected Chicago and Indianapolis.
Before I leave Broad Ripple, I would like to mention that it was a summertime retreat for Indianapolis from 1890 to 1930.
The organizers of the Broad Ripple Transit Company in 1894, what was called the first electric interurban railway to be constructed and put in operation in the United States, created the White City of Indianapolis Company in 1905, with the stated goal of developing an amusement park at the end of the Broad Ripple Transit Company’s College Line.
The White City Amusement Park, said to have been named in honor of Chicago’s 1893 Columbian Exposition, which was also known as the White City, opened officially on May 26th of 1906.
The 4-acre pool was scheduled to open to the public on June 27th of 1908, but on June 26th, 2 years and a month to the day, nearly the whole amusement park was burned to the ground, allegedly taking less than 10-minutes to engulf the park.
The pool, however, remained unscathed by the fire.
The Union Traction Company purchased the park in 1911, and continued on as the Broad Ripple Amusement park until around 1945…
…and the location was Broad Ripple City Park today.
Next, in response to my looking at various places with Japanese Peace Gardens, DeR mentioned the Japanese Tea Garden, also known as the Sunken Gardens, in a rock quarry in Breckinridge Park in San Antonio, Texas.
We are told it was developed on land donated to the city in 1899 by George Washington Breckinridge, a businessman who made his initial wealth as a war profiteer during the civil war, water works president, and philanthropist…
…who was the organizer of the first federally-chartered banking institution in the city, and the San Antonio National Bank on Commerce Street was said to have been completed in 1886, using limestone from local quarries.
The formation of the quarry as a Japanese Tea Garden started in 1917, we are told, under the guidance of the City Parks Commissioner at the time, who envisioned an oriental-styled garden in the quarry’s pit, and work began in 1918 with the use of prison-labor after several donors’paid for the cost of developing the quarry into a complex that included stone arch bridges, walkways, an island, and a Japanese Pagoda.
Long story short, the garden eventually sat neglected for many years, becoming a target for vandalism and grafitti, and it was slated for closure by the city.
Various groups in the community rallied, and it was renovated starting in 2009 and re-opened to the public in 2011.
AM mentioned the Japanese Garden in Springfield, Missouri, which is named the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden and is the oldest attraction of the Springfield Botanical Gardens, and was established in 1986 in partnership with the Springfield Sister Cities Association and its Sister City of Isesaki, Japan.
The Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden is on 7.5-acres of land, and includes a moon bridge, meditation garden, large koi lake, tea house, and traditional Japanese Garden landscaping.
CG sent me these photos he took of a particular Odd Fellows bench on the garden grounds near the Japanese Stroll Garden in Springfield.
The American Independent Order of Odd Fellows was founded by Thomas Wildey in 1819 at the Seven Stars in Baltimore, Maryland, which had evolved from the Order of the Odd Fellows founded in England in the 1700s.
The command of the IOOF is to “visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan.”
Would be interesting to know what was really going on here.
Another viewer left a comment regarding this image from the last video of the Seven Pillars in Miami County in Peru, Indiana, directly north of Indianapolis.
The Seven Pillars are held sacred by the Miami Nation of Indiana, which owns land on the south bank of the river directly across from The Seven Pillars, where they hold sacred ceremonies and heritage days.
The viewer said that Cambell, on his Autodidactic 2 YouTube channel, showed very similar “ruins” to the Seven Pillars in Indiana supposedly created by indigenous Australians at the Nawarla Gabarnmung in Australia.
I found this photo of Nawarla Gabarnmung in Australia on the right that looks very similar to the formation and view of the Seven Pillars on the left.
I have arrows pointing to the several layers of stone at the top of the formation in both structures, which both photos show a combination of the thick pillars and skinny pillars, with the second arrow pointing to skinny pillars that are visible at both locations.
Here’s a photo with a better view of a skinny pillar in Indiana.
I couldn’t find a photo of the inside of the Seven Pillars site on the internet, but here is one of the similar site in Australia.
I can make an indirect connection based on what I have found in past research between the people and the places to support the idea that these two ancient sacred places on different continents could very well have been created by intelligent design and are not natural formations.
I started coming across people who identified as lost tribes of Israel all over the world from early on in my research.
This includes the Australian Aborigines identified as the Tribe of Reuben…
…and the Seminole Indians identified as the Tribe of Reuben, and are considered to be a Native American people originally from Florida…
…until the Seminole Wars starting in 1816 and ending in 1858…
…forced the Seminoles either to Indian Territory in Oklahoma…
…or onto six reservations in Florida.
What is interesting about that is that the well-known city of Miami, located at the southern tip of the east coast of the Florida peninsula, is the starting point for Highway 41, and Highway 41, known as “Tamiami Trail” where it crosses over northern border of Everglades National Park in South Florida, to Florida’s west coast is where Seminole reservation land is as well…
…and this same Highway 41 goes all the way up to the very tip of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula on Lake Superior, and passes through Indiana on its way.
The Miami Nation of Indiana hails from the Great Lakes region.
So then why is there a Miami at the southern tip of Florida in historic Seminole lands?
Possibly unrelated pieces of information which circumstantially connects the Seminoles, the Miami Nation of Indiana, and the Australian Aborigines, but then again, possibly not unrelated pieces of information….
With regards to the subject of Heligoland/Helgoland that I reviewed in the last post, a viewer commented that Heligoland was indeed a sacred and holy place, and is the only place in the world that a certain type of blood red silex, or flint, can be found.
Also that Heligoland is a remnant of Doggerland, believed by some to be part of Atlantis, and that it once connected Great Britain to Continental Europe.
Doggerland was said to have been submerged beneath the southern North Sea 8,000 years ago after the Storegga landslide, which took place off the coast of Norway between Bergen and Trondheim, and generated a tsunami strong- enough, and high-enough, to take out what was called the “True Heart of Europe.”
PS left a comment with lyrics from a song by Massive Attack in their 2010 Album, “Heligoland.”
These lyrics were from the song “Saturday Come Slow”:
In the limestone caves
In the south west lands
What towns in the kingdom
Beneath us understand?
Is Humanity under Massive Attack? I think so.
Lastly, I received some suggestions of places to look with regards to over-the-top architecture for schools, like the Central High School in Duluth, Minnesota, and the John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia, two viewer suggested another example of Stadium High School, near downtown Tacoma, Washington.
It was said to have been constructed as a luxury hotel resembling a French Chateau for the Northern Pacific Railroad Company starting in 1891…
…but the Panic of 1893 brought its construction to a sudden halt when the Northern Pacific Railroad was faced with financial disaster.
The Panic of 1893 resulted in an economic depression which lasted until 1897.
We are told the unfinished hotel building subsequently became a storage facility until it was gutted by a fire in 1898, after which the Northern Pacific Railroad began dismantling it, and removing 40,000 unique Roman bricks said to have been manufactured by the California ceramics company Gladding, McBean in order to use them for the building of two other train stations, one in Montana and the other in Idaho.
Then, the Tacoma School District purchased the gutted building in 1904, and the redesign was planned by the school’s architect, Frederick Heath, with the reconstructed building opening in September of 1906.
In 1911, the future President Theodore Roosevelt spoke at the high school’s Stadium Bowl to a huge crowd, and said at the time that he had never seen anything like it in the world.
It is still in use as a high school today.
Viewer IG mentioned an abandoned school in Detroit that was once Cooley High School, and a very elaborate building said to have been constructed in the architectectural style of Mediterranean Revival.
It opened in 1928, and was closed at the end of the 2009 – 2010 academic year for the given reason of budget constraints and declining enrollment.
A suspected arson fire severely damaged the auditorium and rooms surrounding it in the building on September 30th of 2017.
That didn’t get it demolished, as it still sits abandoned in an old Detroit neighborhood and is considered Michigan’s largest abandoned school!
I am going to end this follow-up segment to “Short and Sweet #6” here, and in the next one I will be sharing other places I have been asked by commenters to look into, as well as some photographs viewers have shared with me, and the information they have gathered, in their journeys and explorations close to where they live.
