Overlook Mountain, Drako Petra, Glenn discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
Welcome back Glenn. Chrysler Berg with us of course we're talking about his book. Spirits and stone Glenn where do you get the? Book You get the book well of. Course Amazon but if. You have a good. Local bookstore you go in there and see if they have. It or asked them order it Like, to promote local buy local and local bookstore did you have fun writing the. Book Oh I had a blast because I got to spend a lotta time out in the woods wandering around, and keeps me out of. Trouble and some exercise and fresh air When you started looking at these structures for the very first time were you in all I was and I I have, to say when when I made this connection with the. Drako Petra for my overlook mountain I was I was in disbelief for half, a day. So we had we had a GPS specialist from the New York, state museum Susan Sweeney She came out again probably almost ten years ago now want to say it was two thousand, eight and she did a survey of the site on. Overlook mountain and documented about forty six small Cairns and sixth grade Cairns into, serpent laws Excuse. Me And a couple. Of springs so she did all this on a topographical map and sent it. To me and when I first saw what struck me really were the the rows of. Smaller carrots these are the ones that are probably Four to five feet high and about the same wide and, they were in crested rose just lined up and you know to me that was that was what struck me is something that was interesting listen to a about a year later that I looked to plot and one of my friends Dave holding had suggested that maybe it was a some. Of these stone constructions connected to make a star map with the, constellation skeptical of this because there are so many of them up. There that you could kind of cherry picking and create all kinds of designs. By connecting the dots so I decided just to just to focus on the large constructions. There were eight large constructions up there The six giant great Karen to the two circuit. Effigy was all I'll be structures are between sixty and one hundred, feet and legs so he decided to just those and connect the dots and the only possible matter possible and and when when I did, I compared it. To a charter, of the, northern hemisphere star chart and only one came anywhere close and that. Was Drako and it matched very closely I was just blown away by how close this configuration, on the mountain of these stone constructions connected in a way that mirrored this constellation in the sky so I got a and I didn't know anything about Drako you know I started researching it and found out that it was one of the most important constellations in ancient ecology it was. Recognized by the ancient Chinese h increase the ancient Persians ancient Celts, ancient Norris all ancient cultures most recognized Drako 'cause a serpent or snake in the sky so having made this connection this correlation on overlook mountain I got some astronomy software and. I put in the coordinates of overlook mountain to see what was in the sky above it and sure enough there was drako's sitting in the sky above. There was overlook mountain and that's because as I mentioned Drako. Is marking, celestial north and I believe overlook mountain that was built on it was also as a beacon marking celestial. North for anybody at abuse of this mountain which is extensive you, can see the for thirty miles in all directions So. So yeah I was I was certainly in off of that and it just kind of, scratching my head. For half a day say it how can this be What's the meaning of this and and since then I believe we had one similar kind of a. Tiffany or discovery, that's the. Association I made with dance camera the point on the Hudson river and the mouth of the creek across, the river, slightly to the north And that's also a very important celestial relationship between that point of land on the river and and the mouth of the creek Dan scammer point was actually named by the crew of Henry Hudson ship As she was sailing, up the Hudson on his third voyage of discovery in sixteen o nine his crew, witnessed a ceremony taking place on, a point of, land, on the Hudson, about forty miles north, of Manhattan and you. Know natives pay their bodies painted dancing and chanting and around the ring affiars recorded in the log of Half Moon and Crew, immediately called this devil-worshipping. Named dance camera point which needs devil's dance chambers And but why why was this point so important and when I, found it that it, aligned summer solstice alignment with the mouth of the creek right across the river I understood why this was such an important spiritual place where they would have held their ceremonies were. Some of these structures Glenn built to keep things in or keep things out Well it depends on. What those things are I think they in many cases they were a they were built in a way to be a transition between worlds so there's a lot of symbolism there Yes yes and this strong. Connection to the to the sky world Yeah and the underworld and there are many, symbolic relationships, around around many ancient, cultures that have to do with you know elements of this, guy. Elements of the obey subterranean worlds coming together and being You. Know you joined in the in the plane of living here on the surface did they, have any, practical purpose or was, it more as you've just mentioned this more esoteric reason I think they did. Have practical purposes I think they, they were multi purpose as I mentioned earlier I think they were In the case of the chambers they certainly had a right a shelter sure many of these large. Stones and even large boulders that documents are not just. What we would call calendar stones and that they allied with solstices but they're also compass does enter into the coastal directions they'll have no noses or. Prominent faces and points that, have been oriented to north south, east and west usually north south north east and west south so not so much documented but a few instances of that but knowing the direction. Of north south east west to ancient. Cultures was extremely important and they didn't. Have the kind of, compasses we had today This magnetic needles they did it more through you know to understanding the movements of the sky And condition on certain days of the year at the sunrise sunset that allowed them to understand pretty accurately where north east south west with these different orientations where and they they let these markers. Scattered across the land and acting book has calendars and this compasses. So doesn't get more practical, but. Now let's go to the phones, now west of the Rockies, Arnie is, in granite bay California go ahead Ernie Yeah hi I'm from. California now but I grew, up. In that area My father had a farm in Hyde Park my bike under. Ten I lived on and my grandparents had a hotel and pine plains I'm sure? These, names. Are, all familiar at Hyde, Park is were Roosevelt was right yeah Yeah right on the? Hudson In fact Paolo and I can attest to the stone structures that were built by their LA, people because like for example my father is, fine the by wire fences follow all the walls and. A lot of the stonework that was their way. Before that, in colonial times but Karma, other comment I, wanna make 'cause I did a lot of research on the air quay. Indian and they're the mohawk lived in, that area and one of the striking things I've found, looking at pictures that I could pull up on the very earliest camera pictures photographers of Eric who I. Was they didn't look like the other American Indians. Mahogany and. The air co I don't, know which tried there. Was but they have very similar features to Europeans and I I couldn't understand that. How that was and why it was, different than I really mused about the culture and also. Their stature was a little bit different they were they were, not really short better Europe and it it's a question there, on the culture and where do the where they came from but the question I had was regarding I would like to go to, some of those sites 'cause I'm going back, to my high school reunion this October not like to. Go to some of those sites and see but. The The problem that I would think I would. Encounter because. Having grown up there no, the area most of. All the land is private you know it's not like out here in the west. Where we have the land public land, where you can walk walk all over the place are. Those are those sites visible can person just go and visit, them and also do you have a tour that you would, offer somebody Yes and yes The most of these sites are, on private property and I take pains in my book not to disclose their location to protect them. From being disturbed but there are a few sites that are, on DC land New York State Department, of environmental conservation and and they are easily accessed and a. Cat and.
