THE EMERGENCE PROJECT: Big Sur Hopi ceremonial site(s) ?
Created the 90 min. documentary EMERGENCE: Beyond 2012 ? And the book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1480182931
May 2009 found another site in the area, here are some satellite photos of the site from Google maps:
here's what I saw from the road
more to follow
the following are photos of the first site I found in the area in 1994 & photographed in 2004
1.view from north
sept. 10-12 ,2004
with cameras in hand I revisited a site I discovered in the Big Sur area of CA. Feb. 1994
those pointy things you see there are 2 stones in the East (left) set closely next to one another to create
something of a sighting slot...and 1 stone as a sighting stone in the west...it looks like its aligned to the Equinox Sunrise & Sunset points
Also it would appear that whomever constructed this site, unearthed the hilltop to bare the stone and then carved the stone in place
while sculpting the earth into a pattern of rings and earth work mounds and depressions that reminds me of the serpent mound near Peebles, Ohio
a place I feel is aligned with the summer and winter solstice points and is associated with the Serpent clan of the Hopi...
my theory is:
that this site in the photo may be connected to the Hopi, the point where they may have begun their migrations
upon emerging into this the 4th world after surviving the destruction of the 3rd world by flood...
[see Frank Waters : The Book of the Hopi ;pub.1961, Viking Press]
this site is on a strait line as the crow flies east to Oraibi [["..the center of the universe.."],
in Hopi land in north east Arizona
2. closer view from north
the sighting stones look to be aligned to the east/west equinox points
the hilltop appears to have been excavated to expose the rock
then the stones were carved in place and the displaced soil was formed into a ring like earthwork pattern as yet undeciphered...
there is "bay laurel "growing out of the rock a shrub that usually grows down where the hillsides
come together along the creek beds
signifying perhaps there maybe a blind spring underneath
in the spring after the rain the water flows out from two places beneath..
there's a tree /bush growing to the east , west and south points of the mound
growing on the south southwest side of the mound
what looks like milkweed which is where monarch butterflies lay there eggs
if intentionally planted this could be a reference to the butterfly clan of the Hopi
who i 've been told are the Havasupai who are the guardians of the "sipapu" or 'place of emergence'
a hole/cave in the bottom of the grand canyon air is coming up out of.
this site may be a marker of where the Hopi clans began their migrations to the four edges of this landmass
after coming ashore from having crossed the pacific ocean
after surviving and witnessing the last world destruction/"purification" by flood
[ this story is laid out in THE BOOK OF THE HOPI by Frank Waters published in 1961 by Viking Press
supposedly based on interviews with 30 Hopi elders .]
more later...is there an archeoastronomer familiar with the area ?
