2011 - The last Secret of Stonehenge

  I recently observed a feature of Stonehenge, that has seemingly never been noticed before.
Around 4300 years ago, the construction of Stonehenge was started. Since then, this Neolithic Cathedral has maintained all of it’s original power. The standing Sarsen stones came from the mysterious area of Marlborough Downs which is 20 miles north of Stonehenge. The Bluestones came from Preseli Hills in Wales which is about 250 miles away from Stonehenge. These stones have many stories to tell. They have been accumulating wisdom for eons from ceremonies, cosmic download and more. The vast amount of knowledge, energy, and intention that went into the design and construction of Stonehenge, is forever locked into the core essence of each stone.

Stones that have stories to tell and that are willing to share their accumulated knowledge and wisdom. And that is what they did in my dream, by whispering their secrets to me through the night. Upon awakening, I immediately began studying the stone temple, and was shocked by my discovery.
 

Stonehenge, ready for the summer solstice

Thousands have studied Stonehenge, which has resulted in hundreds and hundreds of books about this magical place. Nowhere in any book, had I read what I discovered that night. Initially I thought I had made a mistake, but no matter from which angle I looked at it, the facts were irrefutable.
Almost every aspect of Stonehenge has a link somehow to our Universe. Stonehenge is undeniable an ingeniously designed observatory. Moonrises and moonsets are defined as well as those of the sun. But when it comes down to it, Stonehenge seems to be build for just one specific moment in the year. The summer solstice. Some 100 yards away from the centre of Stonehenge stands the so called Heelstone. It is a single large block of Sarsen stone. On the day of the summer solstice, usually 21 June, you can, while standing in Stonehenge, see the sun rise exactly above the Heelstone. It is a truly magical moment. Summer solstice at Stonehenge
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people come for the summer solstice to Stonehenge to witness this amazing phenomenon.
 
  Direction of sunrise at Stonehenge during the summer solstice

The picture on the right shows this magical moment from above. You can see how the big Bluestones in the middle, which are arranged in a horseshoe shape, seam to embrace the first sunrays. You can also see the Heelstone and the direction of the sunrise.

It was while studying this situation from above, that I made the shocking discovery. I not only drew the sunrise direction (yellow line) over Stonehenge, but also the sunset direction on the day of the summer solstice. The two yellow lines that mark the sunrise and the sunset, form an angle of 103.5 degrees. This angle made my breath stop in my throat. I knew that angle. I have studied it endlessly. It is the angle formed by 'Squaring the Circle'. Wow!
 
Squaring the Circle created by the summer solstice at Stonehenge

Squaring the Circle is the phenomenon of a square and a circle of equal circumference. Through the ages many great minds have studied this phenomenon. Pythagoras, Archimedes, Galilei, Newton, are just a few. Although Squaring the Circle cannot be found in nature, it is remarkable how often it shows itself in crop circles. Sometimes even 100% perfect (click here). Already my very first crop circle I ever visited, back in 1994, contained squaring the circle (click here).

The fascination for squaring the circle has made it appear at the most unlikely and intriguing places. For instance in the Cathedral of Aachen (click here). But also in the Vatican and at CERN (click here). The Great Pyramid is, by means of the angle of its slope, fully based on squaring the circle. (click here). And now it turns out that even Stonehenge contains 'Squaring the Circle'. Truly shocking! It has given me many sleepless nights. During these nights, I began thinking of the Great Pyramid and Silbury Hill. Little did I know that a new shocking discovering was waiting for me.

Addendum
Several readers have pointed out that the sun rises during the summer solstice more to the north than I seem to indicate in my article. You could reword this:
The Heelstone is placed in the wrong spot. The sun rises at the summer solstice slightly more to the north then indicated by the stone. But ... as soon as the sun appears from behind the stone, it exactly lines up with the stone!

In other words:
The Heelstone is placed in exactly the right spot to make ‘squaring the circle’ possible. It defines ‘squaring the circle’. The sun rises during the summer solstice a little to the north of the stone, but as soon as she appears from behind the stone, she also is in exactly the correct spot to define ‘squaring the circle’.

Can it be that the Heelstone was placed at the spot where she is to define ‘squaring the circle’ and not (as usually is believed) to indicate sunrise at the summer solstice?
