Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 21 – San Luis Potosi, Mexico to Brownsville, Texas

In the last post, I followed the alignment from Colima, where it enters Mexico; through ancient ceremonial site of El Chanal, through the volcanic national park of Nevado de Colima; crossing over Lake Chapala, Mexico’s largest freshwater lake; through Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco State; to Aguascalientes, the capital of Aguascalientes State.

I am picking up the alignment in San Luis Potosi, the capital of the Free and Sovereign State of San Luis Potosi. It was named after King Louis IX of France, and the fabulously rich mines of Potosi in Bolivia.

It was a major gold and silver mining hub on the Camino Royal de Tierra Adentro, or the Royal Road of the Interior Land, with some of the richest silver mines in Mexico. It was a trade route during from the mid-16th to the 19th-centuries, between Mexico City, and San Juan Pueblo in New Mexico.

So, there was a flourishing trade network between Mesoamerica and the Rocky Mountains via this route connecting the people of the Valley of Mexico with those to the north…that took place well before Spanish colonial times.

Interestingly, there are some mighty sturdy stone bridges found along this historic route in Mexico…

…similar in appearance to this bridge in Lexington, Kentucky…

…this bridge in Gondar in Ethiopia…

…the Old Stirling Bridge in Scotland…

…and this bridge in Konjic, Bosnia.

This is the Arts Center of San Luis Potosi…

…compared with Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois.

These are the El Salto Waterfalls on the El Salto River, which are now dry except for the rainy season because of a hydroelectric dam on the river, in El Naranjo in San Luis Potosi State, northeast of the city.

…compared with Havasupai Falls, in Arizona’s Grand Canyon…

…Luang Prabang falls in Laos…

…waterfalls in the Rummah Valley in Saudi Arabia…

…and in the Valley of the Blue Moon in Lijiang, China, in a lush valley of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

Next on the alignment is the Cascada el Salto, in Palmillas in Tamaulipas State…

…compared with the Ticino Caverns in Switzerland.

Victoria is the capital of the Mexican State of Tamaulipas.

It is in northeast Mexico, at the foot of the Sierra Madre Oriental, running 620 miles, or 1,000-kilometers, from the Rio Grande on the border between Coahuila State and Texas, to North Puebla State…

…where you find large, cut-and-shaped stones…

…and massive rock slopes. We see these as natural formations because we haven’t been taught about any other possibility.

This is the Pinacoteca Tamaulipas, a space now dedicated to preserving the pictorial heritage of Tamaulipas State. It is housed in the former “Casa Filizola,” said to have been built by three Italian brothers in 1884.

Compare the style of stone archways found here with this chapel in Scotland

Next on the alignment is Las Adjuntas…

…the name of one of the largest dams in Mexico, also known as the Vicente Guerrero dam…

…and under which lies the town of old Padilla.

Quite a bit of history has been covered up in this fashion, and not just here in Mexico.

On the way to Matamoros, Mexico, and the border with the United States, the alignment skirts the edge of the natural protected area of Laguna Madre y Delta del Rio Bravo.

It is very shallow, with an average depth of about 3-feet, or 1-meter.

It is one of the most important bird wintering habitats in Mexico.

We come to Matamoros, in the northeastern part of the State of Tamaulipas, on the southern bank of the Rio Grande River, directly across from Brownsville, Texas.

Olmecs are believed to have inhabited this part of Mexico at one time, the earliest known major Mesoamerican civilization. This is a colossal Olmec head.

Matamoros is a major historical site, and was the site of battles during the Mexican War of Independence, the Mexican Revolution, the Texas Revolution, the Mexican-American War, and the American Civil War.

Casa Mata in Matamoros was said to have been constructed in 1845, as one of a defensive line of forts there, and completed in 1875.

The Port of Matamoros, also known as the Port of Bagdad, was one of the leading commercial ports in the world during the American Civil War. It was booming as the only entrance port for mercenaries for the Confederacy, as well as being an international free trade zone as of 1858.

This is an historical photo of what was called the Plaza de Armas in Matamoros back in the day…

…and a more modern photo of the same plaza, only now called the Plaza Principal. I find it noteworthy that there is still an old stone archway standing here.

Next the alignment comes to Brownsville, Texas, on the western gulf coast in south Texas, and part of the Brownsville-Matamoros Conurbation, or continuous urban developed area.

It was said to have been founded in 1848 by American entrepreneur Charles Stillman…

…after he developed a successful riverboat company on the Rio Grande.

He named Brownsville after Major Jacob Brown, who fought and died in the Mexican-American War, which took place between 1846 and 1848.

Brownsville was the site of several key events during the American Civil War. The Battle of Brownsville involved the Union Army successfully disrupting blockade runners along the Gulf Coast in Texas.

The Battle of Palmito Ranch took place east of Brownsville, and is considered the final battle of the Civil War, as it took place on May 12th and May 13th of 1865, and after the Confederacy ceased to exist.

By the way, if you have been following my work, you know I talk about finding snaky, s-shaped river bends, like the Rio Grande depicted here, all over the world. I believe it is a signature of the ancient advanced civilization.

This the old Federal Courthouse in Brownsville, said to have been built in 1931. Not a lot of people or activity in this photo showing such a grand building.

It is now the Brownsville City Hall.

This arched and domed architecture is in downtown Brownsville…

…and this is Brownsville’s Immaculate Conception Cathedral, said to have been built in 1856.

How’d they build something like that in 1856, just a few years before the beginning of the American Civil War, at which time people were killing each other with muskets, bayonets, and cannon?

Definitely not the kinds of technologies that create sophisticated architecture like the Brownsville Cathedral.

I am going to end this post, and pick up the alignment at Port Isabel, on the Texas coast, in the next post.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 19 Trujillo, Peru to the Galapagos Islands

In the last post, I tracked the alignment from Cachimbo, and the Serra do Cachimbo in Brazil’s Para State; through Porto Velho, the capital of the Brazilian State of Rondonia, on the Madeira River in the Upper Amazon Basin; across the Serra do Divisor National Park in Brazil’s Acre State, on the border with Peru; through to Pucallpa, the capital of the Colonel Portillo Province of Peru.

I am picking up this circle alignment starting, and ending, in Washington, DC, at Trujillo, a coastal city in northwestern Peru, and the capital of the Department de La Libertad.

This is an historic map of Trujillo, Peru from 1786, with its fifteen-pointed city wall.

For comparison, this is Lucca, Italy in the present-day, known for its well-preserved, and what are called Renaissance, walls.

Lucca is also described as a star city by modern researchers of star forts.

This is a view of Trujillo from Google Earth, with an oval shape in the center that looks like the historic map of Trujillo.

There is one intact point of the original fifteen remaining…

…that I found when I looked at a close up of the oval in the city’s center.

Here is a street view of the wall of the intact point. Note the size of it compared to the people next to it…

…and here it is from another side. It has definitely seen better days, but at least it is still standing!

About 9 miles, or 14 kilometers, northwest of Trujillo, is the fishing village of Huanchaco, known for its reed boats, called “Caballitos de Tortora,” said to have been first made by the Moche people 2,500 years ago.

Still in Peru, Lake Titicaca is known as well for not only its reed boats of similar design…

…but also for its communities of people living on reed islands…

…where even more elaborate boats are made from reeds.

Reed boats of similar design are also found in Africa, from Egypt in ancient times…

…to the Blue Nile in Ethiopia in the present day…

…as well as Lake Chad in the country of Chad.

At one time the small fishing village of Huanchaco of the reed boats was the port city for Chan Chan, believed to be the largest city of the pre-Columbian era in South America. It was the capital of the Chimu Kingdom from 900 to 1470 AD, when it was defeated by the Inca Empire.

Then the Spanish came 50-years later and defeated the Inca, at which time the riches and artifacts of Chan Chan were looted and shipped to Spain.

In the last thirty years, Chan Chan has become one of the most restored sites in South America.

The Palacio Tschudi is the most restored.

Chan Chan is considered to be the largest mud-brick (also known as adobe) city in the world.

It is interesting to note there are many other places with similar mud-brick architecture, like Djenne in Mali.

Djenne’s masons use a technique called Djennefere using cylindrical, instead of rectangular, bricks as building materials.

Timbuktu, also in Mali, is known for its mud-brick architecture.

In the region of what was ancient Nubia, there is a mud-brick temple complex in Kerma, Sudan, called Deffufa, that is believed to be an estimated 9,500-years-old.

The Bam Citadel near Kerman, Iran, is considered to be the world’s largest mud-brick building.

This is the mud-brick Itchan Kala, the inner walled town of Khiva in Uzbekhistan…

…and lastly, these are the mud-brick Tombs of Astana in Turpan, China, in the Uighur Autonomous Region.

Now back to Peru.

The Moche Culture is said to have flourished in Peru somewhere between 100 AD and 900 AD, with its capital near present day Moche in Trujillo.

The Moche are particularly noted for their ceramics…

For comparison, this ceramic artifact, called a stone effigy pipe, was found at Spiro Mounds in Eastern Oklahoma.

The Moche are also known for their gold-work…

…their monumental constructions, like the Huaca del Sol, a massive mud-brick pyramid, in the Moche Valley of the northern coast of Peru…

…and the Huaca de Moches, located or 2.5-miles, or 4-kilometers, outside of the modern city of Trujillo.

The Moche are also known for their canal irrigation systems.

Before I leave Peru, I would like to back-track to a place that is not directly on the alignment, but is situated north of it between Pucallpa and Trujillo. That place would be Cajamarca.

The Spanish Conquest of Peru is said to have started in 1532 with the Battle of Cajamarca.

We are told that Pedro Arias D’Avila established a base of conquest in Panama City for Peru in 1519, on the Pacific side of the Isthmus of Panama. The coast of Spain is on the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.

It is quite a distance from Panama City to Cajamarca, by land or sea. It sits at 8,900 feet in elevation, or 2,750 meters.

That’s way up there, about 1.7 miles, or 2.75 kilometers, in elevation!

It is generally agreed that altitude sickness typically tends to start occurring at 8,000 feet. Characterized by headache, nausea, shortness of breath and vomiting.

I went to Cusco, Peru last year, and was hit with altitude sickness on the second full day I was there. I was absolutely miserable and not really functional. I had difficulty breathing, and was nauseous. Money brought to spend on memories instead got spent on portable oxygen bottles and altitude sickness medicine. I didn’t start feeling much better until we went down in altitude several days later.

Yet, somehow Pizarro and his 128 men marched to Cajamarca from Piure, on the coast of modern-day Peru, in unfamiliar terrain at high altitudes, managed to kill thousands of Incas and capture the Inca Emperor Atahualpa? I am having a hard time buying what they are selling….

The circle alignment leaves Peru from the Trujillo area, and crosses into the Pacific Ocean.

The next land it comes to is comprised of the Galapagos Islands, a province of Ecuador that is described as a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.

It is considered one of the world’s foremost destinations for wildlife viewing.

Pay attention to the different species, and not the rocks…

…same thing with the rare bird shown here that is called blue-footed booby. Rocks are just rocks, right? No big deal.

These land features are found on Bartelome Island, a small island at the center of the archipelago.

I have seen the same land features in other places.

First, the double-shoreline is seen at World’s End near Hingham, Massachusetts on the top left; on the top right is found at the Alter do Chao in Santarem, Brazil; and on the bottom is a land feature found on Attu Island, the farthest west of the Aleutian Islands.

Second, this land feature in the same location from another on Bartolome Island in the Galapagos Islands…

…looks like this one off the coast of Yalta on the Crimean Peninsula in the Black Sea…

…this one in the Revillagigedo Islands between Hawaii and Mexico in the Pacific Ocean…

…and this one at Cape Litke on the eastern coast of Wrangel Island, in the East Siberian Sea off the northern coast of Russia.

I am going to end this post here, and pick up the alignment in the next post in Colima, Mexico.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 18 Cachimbo, Brazil to Pucallpa, Peru

In the last post, I tracked the alignment from Ico, in the central part of the Ceara State in Brazil; through Crato, in southern Ceara State, on the northeastern edge of the Chapada , or Plateau, do Araripe on what is known as the Crato Formation; to Palmas, the capital of the Tocantins State of Brazil.

Next on the alignment, there is a place marked Cachimbo.

I can’t find much information about it except that there are Brazilian military bases…

…and a military airport here.

However, Cachimbo is surrounded by the Serra do Cachimbo, described as a continuous mass of mountains with a southwest alignment, partly plateau with flat-bottomed valleys, in the southern part of the State of Para.

The Nascentes da Serra do Cachimbo Biological Reserve is supposed to protect an area of transition between the Cerrado and the Amazon Biomes.

The Cerrado is a vast tropical savanna region of Brazil, with core areas in the plateaus of central Brazil, and has been named by the World Wide Fund for Nature as the biologically richest savanna in the world, with 10,000 plant species, and 10,000 endemic, meaning found no where else, bird species.

The Nascentes da Serra do Cachimbo Biological Reserve is among the federal conservation units in the Amazon Legal that has suffered the most from deforestation. Its area was cut by half in 2017, and was opened up to agriculture and logging.

This is a sequence of waterfalls on the Rio Curua in the Serra do Cachimbo region.

It is also interesting to note that the Brazilian Army conducted nuclear testing at a base near Cachimbo from the 1970s to the 1990s.

This is not the first time I have encountered a nuclear test location on a planetary alignment.

Other places include:

Novaya Zemlya, a boomerang shaped island off of the northern coast of Russia. The most powerful nuclear weapon ever, Tsar Bomba, was detonated at Novaya Zemlya in 1961.

There is a history here of nuclear testing by the Russians, including over 224 nuclear detonations at Novaya Zemlya between 1955 and 1990. 

Lop Nur, an ancient salt lake in the Takla Maklan Desert in the Southeastern portion of the Uighur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang in China.

The Chinese Nuclear Weapons Test Base had four nuclear testing zones at Lop Nur, starting in 1959 – with H-Bomb detonation in 1967 – until 1996, with 45 nuclear tests conducted.

Reggane, Algeria. France began its nuclear testing program in Reggane in 1960 – 1961, before Algeria’s independence.

They conducted four atmospheric nuclear tests, which contaminated the Sahara Desert with plutonium, negatively impacting those who live here to this day – not only Reggane, but far beyond.

Between 1960 and 1966, a total of 17 nuclear tests were conducted in the Reggane District of Algeria. It is called Africa’s Hiroshima.

The Christmas and Malden Islands in the Kiribati Islands, where Operation Grapple was conducted. This was the name of four series of British nuclear weapons tests of early atomic bombs and hydrogen bombs carried out in 1957 and 1958.

What is it they say?

Once is chance, twice is coincidence, and the third time is a pattern.

I have provided five examples that I know of regarding nuclear testing on planetary gridlines.

What does this suggest?

Porto Velho is the next place on the alignment, the capital of the Brazilian State of Rondonia, with a population of over 500,000…

…on the Madeira River in the Upper Amazon Basin.

This is the Federal University of Rondonia…

…compared with this building in Jerome, Arizona. Not an exact match, but both have similar design features.

This is the Real Forte Principe da Beira, southwest of Porto Velho, on the Guapore River in Rondonia State.

It was said to have been built between 1776 and 1783 by the Portuguese…

…in the middle of nowhere…

…in the Amazon rainforest.

Hmmmm. Sounds fishy to me….

The alignment goes through the Serra do Divisor National Park in Brazil’s Acre State, on the country’s border with Peru.

It is known for its cone-shaped mountains…

…for its waterfalls, that look like massive walls…

…and look at all the snaky, s-shaped curves in that river in the Serra do Divisor, or Watershed Mountains.

The next place on the alignment is Pucallpa, Peru, and the capital of the Ucayali Region, the Colonel Portillo Province, and the Calleria District.

It is situated on the Ucayali River in the Amazon rainforest of eastern Peru, its main transportation artery.

It is the second most important port on the Amazon, after Iquitos in Peru.

This is the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas, with its arches within arches design.

This is what it looks like on the inside, with its beautiful stained glass, and apparent lack of internal pillar supports for the structure.

The Clocktower in the Plaza del Reloj is also decorated with stained glass. These are said to portray images of mythical creatures.

Before ending this post, I want to bring to your attention a national park that is northwest of Pucallpa, and north on the alignment. It is called the Parque Nacional Cordillera Azul.

The second largest park in Peru, it is part of the high jungle, in the transition area between the Andes and the Amazon in Peru.

It has similar features to what is found in the previously shown Serra do Divisor National Park in Brazil’s Acre State, like this land feature.

Here’s a whole slew of pointed-peaks in the Cordillera Azul.

There are waterfalls here as well, that also look like massive walls.

I will end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Trujillo, Peru.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 16 Gulf of Guinea to Natal, Brazil

In the last post, I tracked the circle alignment emanating from Washington, DC, through the Sahara Desert, starting at the ruins of Djado at the southern end of the Djado Plateau in Niger; across the Tenere Desert, the eastern-half of the Air and Tenere National Nature Reserve in Niger; through Bilma, still a modern-day stop in Niger for salt on the Trans-Saharan Caravan route of the Tuareg; across the Great Erg, or Sand Sea, of Bilma; through the towns of N’Guigmi and Diffa in Niger; and into Nigeria the cities through the cities of Abuja, Abeokuta, and ending at Lagos, a major port city of Africa on the coast of Nigeria.

I am picking up the alignment where it enters the Gulf of Guinea, the most northeastern part of the tropical Atlantic Ocean between Cape Lopez in Gabon, north and west to Cape Palmas in Liberia.

The intersection of the Equator and Prime Meridian is in the Gulf of Guinea, otherwise known as 0-degrees longitude and 0-degrees latitude. Eyeballing on this map, after leaving the mainland at Lagos, Nigeria, the circle alignment tracks over this location on its way to Brazil across the Atlantic Ocean.

The alignment enters the Gulf of Guinea through what is called the Bight of Benin, which extends eastward for 400 miles, or 640 kilometers, from Cape St. Paul, to the Nun Outlet of the Niger River.

The Bight of Benin and the Republic of Benin were named after the…

…Kingdom of Benin, which was a pre-colonial Kingdom in southern Nigeria. It was old and highly developed.

The Edo people were the original people of the Kingdom of Benin, which was founded in 1300.

It was one of the major powers in West Africa until the late 19th-century, when it was annexed by the British Empire in 1897.

Compare the headgear of the Edo man, with a traditional Mongolian hat. My take on this similarity is that there was a unified worldwide spiritual practice involving the re-connection of each human individual with Source through the crown chakra.

The Republic of Benin was previously the Kingdom of Dahomey, which existed from about 1600, until it was annexed by the French Colonial Empire in 1894.

This is in Ouidah, or Ajuda in Portuguese, on the coast of what was Dahomey. It was said to have been built by the Portuguese in the 1720s.

Infrastructure like this is falsely attributed all over the world, instead of giving credit to the actual builders. Like, you know, the indigenous people who lived there instead of the colonizers.

The Niger River, the principal river of West Africa, is that main river that empties into the Gulf of Guinea.

The Niger River Delta, extending over 27,000 square miles, or 70,000 kilometers squared, separates the Bight of Benin…

…from the Bight of Biafra, which in the present day is known as the Bight of Bonny. It runs from the Niger Delta to Cape Lopez in Gabon.

Biafra became a part of Nigeria after the Nigerian Civil War of 1967 to 1970.

What is now called the Bight of Bonny hosts the Cameroon Line of Volcanoes, which includes the island Republic of Sao Tome and Principe, a former Portuguese colony.

The capital and largest city is Sao Tome, where Sao Sebastiao Fort is located.

Here is a shot from Google Earth confirming that Sao Sebastiao Fort is in fact a star fort. It was said to have been built by the Portuguese in 1566.

Here are some other things to see on these islands, like what looks like ancient stonework…

…and incredible rock formations, like the Pico Cao Grande, or Great Dog Peak.

Also in the Cameroon Line of Volcanoes, and administered by the country of Equatorial Guinea, are the islands of Bioko…

…Corisco…

…Elobey Grand and Elobey Chico…

…and Annobon.

Leaving the Gulf of Guinea, the alignment crosses over the Equatorial Counter Current and and just into the South Equatorial Current of the South Atlantic Ocean..


The alignment crosses over Fernando de Noronha, the name of the main island and its archipelago. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and on at least one other alignment that I know of. The main island has an area of 7.1 square miles, or 18.4 kilometers-squared, and the archipelago’s total area is 10 square miles, or 26 kilometers-squared.

So what I just found out that is really interesting about this place is that in its relatively small area, there were ten, possibly star, forts here.

The largest and best-preserved is the Forteleza Nossa Senhora dos Remedios.

The Forte de Sao Jose do Morro was only fort built on a secondary island.  It still has imposing ruins.

Forte de Santo Antonio construction was an irregular, four-side polygon.

You can see the Morro do Pico framed nicely through this archway at the Forte de Santo Antonio.

The Forte de Sant’ana was situated over the old harbor in the  Vila dos Remedios.

Ruins of the Forte de Nossa Senhora da Conceicao are visible in the vegetation.

The Forte de Santa Cruz do Pico was a small redoubt.

This is an old map of the Forte de Sao Pedro do Boldro.

People come to the Fort Boldro look-out for sunsets. There is a good view from here of the Two Brothers Rock, which appears to be alignment with the sun.

Then there was the Forte de Sao Bautista dos dois Irmaios…

…the Forte de San Juaquim do Sueste…

…and lastly the Forte do Bom Jesus do Leao.

This circle alignment enters the South American continent at Natal, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian State of Rio Grande do Norte, and said to have been founded on December 25th, 1599.

The Portuguese are said to have built the Forte Dos Reis Magos, or the Fort of the Three Wise Men, as the first milestone of the city of Natal

Here is a view of the Forte dos Reis Magos from the ground, with its exquisitely engineered stone entranceway between the channel on the right, and the Potengi, or Potenji, River on the left.

Star forts like all of these shown here present a mystery because the same design and construction style is found around the world. This is Fort Chambly in Quebec…

…the Fagaras Citadel outside of Bucharest, Romania…

…and the Kronborg Castle in Helsingor, Denmark.

How did all of these places end up with the same design features?

So with the example of the Forte dos Reis Magos in Natal, said to have been built in the 1598, it would have been during times we are told there was low technology, no mass communication or easy transportation.

This was a Caravel ship in which the Portuguese would have sailed during that time period.

And is this what we are talking about for ground transportation?

I mean, what else are we taught that was available to them? I can’t think of anything except for maybe a horse-drawn wagon or carriage.

There is nothing in the historical record that we are taught that comes even close to explaining how this advanced masonry, of similar design, came into being around the world.

What if these so-called forts served a very different purpose for the Advanced Ancient Civilization, like as energy generators, and not only re-purposed for military use by the colonizers, but actually sought out by them for capture?

The Palmanova star fort in Italy is on the left, compared with CERN on the right, for comparison of their similar look.

The Natal Dunes State Park is the second largest urban park in Brazil, and is located in the heart of Natal.

The Ponta Negra Beach is included in the Natal Dunes Park…

This is the Morro de Careca, a landmark icon of Natal, which translates from Portuguese as “Bald Man’s Hill.”

I can’t help but wonder about the origin of the word “Morro”….

On a different note, another unique place of interest near Natal in the Rio Grande do Norte is the Cashew of Pirangi, the world’s largest cashew tree, having the size of 70 normally-sized cashew trees.

I have heard other researchers talk about the role of the planetary grid-lines, or the earth’s leylines, in enhancing agricultural output. In the case of the Cashew of Pirangi, literal food for thought :).

I will be picking up the alignment in the next post in Ico, Brazil.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 14 Alicante, Spain to Djanet, Algeria

In the last post, I tracked the alignment from Madrid, the capital of Spain and its largest city, through the historic region of New Castile, to the city of Albacete, the capital of the Province of Albacete.

Next on the alignment is Alicante, an historic Mediterranean port city and the capital of the province of Alicante, on Spain’s Costa Blanca.

The Castle of Santa Barbara is a major attraction in Alicante. Its origin is said to date back to the 9th-century, at the time of Muslim control of the Iberian Peninsula from 711 to 1296, the year when the castle was said to be captured by the forces of King James II of Aragon.

Looks like it could possibly be a type of star fort.

This is a detail of the Castle of Santa Barbara on the left, compared with a detail of Fort Chambly near Montreal on the top right, and the Yenikale Fortress at the city of Kerch on the Crimean Peninsula on the bottom right.

The Castle of Santa Barbara is at the top of Mount Benacantil, said to be derived from the name of Banu-IQatil, given to it by the Arab Medieval geographer, Al-Idrisi, who lived from 1100 to 1165 AD.

This is the port of Alicante on the top left, compared for similarity in appearance with the port of Olafsvik, Iceland on the top right; the port at Chichi-Jima in the Bonin Islands of Japan on the bottom left; and the port at Funchal on the island of Madeira on the bottom right.

I always look at parks because the ancient civilization is preserved intact in parks of all kinds around the world. Otherwise, in unprotected places, the ancient civilization is destroyed, neglected, or incorporated into existing infrastructure.

This is El Palmeral Park in Alicante, with arrows pointing to ancient stone masonry. Stones with edges and angles that looked carved and shaped in appearance.

For another example, these stones are in Martin Nature Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

These are not isolated examples by any stretch of the imagination.

Once you tune into seeing them in your environment, you will notice them everywhere. It doesn’t matter where on the planet you live. We don’t see them because they aren’t supposed to be there based on what we have been taught about our history. This picture was taken in Greenland.

The Metropolitan area of Alicante includes Elche, a town located in the comarca of Baie Vinalopo.

The River Vinalopo, said to be more accurately called a creek or stream, divides Elche into two parts. It looks like a canal to me, and not like a natural land feature.

This is the Pantano de Elche, which is 3 miles, or 5 kilometers, north of Elche. The area is described as a wonderful nature reserve and swampland.

The wall was said to have been built in the 17th-century, and was the first arch-type dam wall to be built in Europe since Roman times.

The Palmeral of Elche is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Palmeral, or Palm Grove of Elche, is a generic name to designate a system of date palm orchards here.

Said to have originally been planted by the Carthaginians, this sprawling palm grove is one of the largest in the world.

Elche is perhaps best known outside of Spain for the Lady of Elche, a limestone bust that was discovered in 1897 at L’Alcudia, just a short distance outside of Elche.

A shout-out here to Baltimore Fats for his discovery of a similar-looking bust on the B & O Railroad Building in Baltimore, Maryland. Baltimore is also found on this same alignment.

Baltimore Fats is researching these connections on his YouTube Channel of the same name. Interesting stuff!

In modern popular culture, why does Princess Leia from the Star Wars series, sport the same unusual hairdo as Major Iceborg from the movie “The Fifth Element?”

Where did the idea for this hairstyle come from?

It also resembles a traditional hairstyle for Hopi women.

I don’t know the answers. Just asking questions.

There are mysteries here that do not add up for me when it comes to understanding exactly what has taken place on earth. I believe Humanity was experiencing a timeline of higher consciousness timeline that somehow was removed from the collective awareness, and replaced with a degraded and lower timeline of Human misery and suffering. The world was very different from what we see playing out today.

Following the alignment from the Spanish coast from the Alicante area across the Mediterranean Sea towards Algeria, we come to Tabarca Island.

It is the smallest permanently inhabited islet in Spain.

It certainly looks like an artificial island, and maybe even a star fort as well.

The alignment tracks across the Mediterranean Sea from Alicante in Spain, to Algiers in Algeria.

The Mediterranean Sea is connected to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin, and almost completely enclosed by land.

Algiers is the capital, and largest city of the Northern African country of Algeria, and is situated on the west side of a bay of the Mediterranean Sea.

The old part of Algiers is located on a steep hill, topped by a citadel called the Casbah, and is known as the Ancient City of the Deys. 

The 5 noble titles of the Moors are:  El, Bey, Dey, Al, and Ali.  Ancient means something belonging to the very distant past. 

Yet we are told that the title of Dey in Algiers (as well as the Deys of Tunis and Tripoli) was given to these rules under the Ottoman Empire, Starting in 1671.   

Yet the Casbah is known as the Ancient City of the Deys?

Here is a street lay-out found in the Casbah of Algiers on the left compared with the same construct in Cusco, Peru, on the right.

This photo was taken of a building at the Casbah in Algeria.

Here is a closer look at the windows of this building in the Casbah of Algiers compared with a detail of windows in Venice, Italy.

This photo of the grounds of the Botanical Gardens of Hamma in Algiers on the top reminded me of the National Mall in Washington, D. C. on the bottom.

From Algiers, the alignment crosses over the Tell Atlas, the coastal ranges of the Atlas Mountains running for 1,000 miles, or 1,600 kilometers, from eastern Morocco, through Algeria, to Tunisia.

The Atlas Mountains is the location on earth where, according to Greek mythology, the Titan Atlas was condemned to support the heavens. This was his special punishment for his participation in a 10-year Battle of the Titans, in which there was a series of battles involving the younger generation of Titans against the older Gods of Mount Olympus, and the younger Titans lost. The other Titans were put in a place called Tartarus, described by Homer as a deep and sunless place.

The alignment crosses over the Great Eastern Erg, or the Great Eastern Sand Sea, a field of sand dunes stretching from northeast Algeria to the western part of Tunisia.

The Great Eastern Erg used to be associated with the Wadi Igharghar, mostly dry and buried river, with a sizeable network of tributaries, which would flow north into the Erg from the Ahaggar Mountains pictured here if the river-beds were filled with water.

To the north of the Erg, the Aures Mountains provide abundant water run-off, feeding the artesian aquifer of the Jerid of southwestern Tunisia, which of Tunisia’s most important date producing regions.

An artesian aquifer is a confined aquifer containing groundwater under positive pressure. It is trapped water that is surrounded by impermeable layers of rock and clay.

The alignment goes through Illizi, a town in southeastern Algeria, and one of the gateways to Tassili n’Ajjer National Park, which is known for its ancient rock art…

…and unusual rock-formations.

Next on the alignment is Djanet, capital of the Djanet District of the Illizi Province.†

The Gorges of Essendilene are 60-miles, or 97-kilometers, north of Djanet.

This area is famed for its clear water and plant life.

Djanet is inhabited by the Kel Ajjer Tuareg people of eastern Algeria and western Libya.

The Tuaregs are an ancient people of North Africa.

I will end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Djado, Niger, in the next post.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 13 Madrid, Spain to Albacete, Spain

In the last post, I tracked the circle alignment from Lugo, Spain, in Galicia in northwestern Spain, looking at places in this region including the Galician Ancares Mountains, and the Picos de Europa National Park in the Cantabrian Mountains; through Vallodolid, in Castile and Leon, and northwestern Spain’s largest city; and ending in Segovia and the nearby mountains of the Sierra de Guadarrama.

I am picking up the alignment in Madrid, the capital, and largest municipality, of Spain. It is located in the center of Spain, as well as the center of the Autonomous Community of Madrid.

Majrit was the name given to the city in Andalusi Arabic during the Al-Andalusia period. Al Andalus was the name given to most of the Iberian Peninsula between 711 AD and 1492 AD, the only time-period the Moors are given credit for ruling in Spain, and Europe for that matter.

Al Andalus was also known as Muslim Spain, Muslim Iberia, and Islamic Iberia.

I will insert here that I firmly believe the Islam of the Moors was about applied Sacred Geometry, Universal Laws, Beauty, Harmony, and Balance. All of the Moorish Science symbolism was taken over by other groups claiming to be them, falsely claiming their works, or piggy-backing on their legacy. We are not talking about the same thing with the radical Islam we are seeing in the world today. This is a really important distinction to make.

The Moors are Friends of Humanity, with five principles:  Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice.   They are all about teaching to activate the  pineal gland and about the human potential to re-connect to our Divine Natures in this lifetime. This is the Great Seal of the Moors.

The True History of Humanity has really been messed with, to put it mildly. My work is about providing compelling evidence for why I believe this.

This is a depiction of Spain, with Madrid in its center, in the Catalan Atlas of the Majorcan Cartographic School. The Catalan Atlas is considered the most important map of the Medieval period in the Catalan language, dated to 1375. It is attributed to Master Mapmaker Cresques Abraham.

The Catalan Atlas all together has six vellum leaves, each being 26 inches, or 65 centimeters, by 20 inches, or 50 centimeters in size. Each leaf includes the mapping of the geometric lines and shapes that you see depicted here.

It also shows land features that no longer exist, like the two depicted on the left side of this map off the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula.

I have placed a modern map of Spain on the left, with the city of Gijon circled, because the circle with sixteen sections depicted in the Catalan Atlas on the right appears to center on the city of Gijon in Asturias. It indicates a past importance to Gijon that is no longer recognized. I, for one, have never heard of Gijon before.

Here are a few examples of the architectural harmony found around the world, where arches perfectly proportionally frame larger buildings: on the top left is the Laboral University of Gijon; the Palace of the Kings of Majorca is on the top right; the Memorial Arch in Hartford, Connecticut on the bottom left; and the mosque in Grozny, Chechnya on the bottom right.

And here is a comparison for the similarity of appearance of the Port of Gijon, Spain, with the Port of Dover in Dover, England.

If, as we are taught, the cultures of these two different countries developed independently of each other, why does the design of the respective ports look so similar? Again, these are just two examples of many ports and harbors that share these characteristics found around the world.

The building on the top is in Gijon, Spain, and on the bottom is in Lunenbourg, Nova Scotia. Not identical, but both buildings have a similar look to them.

Back to Madrid, and the circle alignment emanating from Washington, DC.

Madrid is situated on the River Manzanares, a river in central Spain which flows from the Sierra de Guadarrama to the Jarama River, a tributary to the Tagus River. Please note the masonry banks of what is being called a natural river, and not a canal.

The longest street in Madrid is the Calle de Alcala, which is 7-miles, or 10.5-kilometers, long.

It was the old road which led to Alcala de Henares, 22-miles, or 35-kilometers northeast of Madrid. The historic center of Alcala de Henares is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Compare the gazebo in Alcala de Henares above with what is called the Moorish Kiosk in Hermosillo, Mexico.

This is the Puerta de Alcala in Madrid, said to have been built in 1778 as the first modern post-Roman triumphal arch built in Europe, commissioned by King Charles III in 1774. Given the low technology that was said to have existed at that time, pre-industrial revolution, how did they build this?

An inscription with a year, or a plaque, is easier to add to architecture, than building monumental architecture of heavy masonry.

This building is also on the Calle de Alcala. I mean, look at the size of it! How are people our size building like this?

This is another building on the Calle de Alcala, compared with one in Times Square in New York City. How did they get the same street lay-out, and basic building design across continents and cultures?

A few words about the Parque de Templo de Debod in Madrid.

What this is described as is an ancient Egyptian Temple of Debod that was dismantled at Abu Simbel due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam, and donated to Spain as a gift for helping to save it. It was consequently said to be rebuilt in the Parque del Oeste in Madrid, Spain between 1970 and 1972.

I am just wondering how a megalithic temple complex like this could have been transported. Those stones would be heavy. Arrows are pointing to what appears to be single-block stones. Those especially would be really heavy, like weighing tons!

I also find it noteworthy that this said re-building of an Egyptian megalithic structure would have taken place at the tail-end of Franco’s rule in Spain, which ended in 1975.

This is the Royal Palace of Madrid on the top, with its construction said to have finished in 1764, and on the bottom is Buckingham Palace, home of the Royal family in London, and said to have been constructed in its present form for the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837.
