Stonehenge, an important prehistoric monument in Britain, stimulates weighty conjecture in the circles of scientists, archeologists, and the impressed curious minded. Speculation says the large earthwork began 5,000 years ago and went through a series of uses, one being religious ceremonies.
Pictures of Stonehenge cause me to think of pictures of the 4,000-year old Egyptian pyramids. These magnificent man-made structures defy logic. No more, they mock human progress.
Progress today seems tightly knit to technological advancements. Electrification, automobiles, airplanes, the Positron Emission Tomography (PET scan), the Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner (MRI scanner), the iPAD, the computer I’m using to type with right now, cranes, bulldozers, excavators.
These revolutionary machines can be linked to busy mortals mesmerized by a screen, an increase in nursing homes, and ravaged landscapes and skyscrapers. The supposed “progress” dulls in presence of the facts.
Moreover I can’t help but wonder, how did Stonehenge and the pyramids come to being without all this 20th century progress?
Logical speculations include the building occurred by rolling the rocks on logs or using oxen to pull stones, then using ramps for height.
Marissa McCauley reported online at Penn State, “For centuries, people have theorized how the great pyramids were built. Some have suggested that they must have been constructed by extraterrestrials, while others believe the Egyptians possessed a technology that has been lost through the ages.” Maybe our ancestors used metaphysical powers.
Metaphysical or mental technology, I believe, coincides with progress more than physical technology.
When I meet progressive people, it isn’t because they own they the latest in gadgetry, it’s because they succeed in promoting social justice, or they figured out how to have a productive relationship with their partner or children, or they assisted in cleanup of a manmade dump.
After experiencing metaphysical healing, it makes it all the more probable that Stonehenge or the pyramids were built through metaphysical prowess.
From 21st Century Science and Health, “Metaphysics resolves things into thoughts and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul.”
