Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Back Glenn? Christ 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 to order it Like, to promote local by local and local bookstores who did you have fun writing the book I had a, blast because I, got to spend a lot of time out in the woods and wandering around and you know 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 and I I have, to say when when, I made, this connection with the Drako Petra. For my overlook mountain I was I was you know 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 I wanna say it was, two thousand eight and, she did, a survey of the site on. Overlook mountain and documented about forty six small Karen's and sixth grade Cairns into, serpent laws Excuse. Me And a couple. Of springs so she plotted all this on a topographical map and sent it. To me and when I first, saw it what struck me really were the the rows of. Smaller carrots these are the ones that are probably Forty 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 about a year later that I looked to plot and one of my, friends Dave, holding had suggested that maybe it was a you know some of these stone. Constructions connected to make a star map with the constellation I was, skeptical of this because there are so many of them up there that you could you. Know 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. Six giant or great Karen to, the two serpent effigy was all of these structures are between. Sixty and one hundred feet in length So decided to just quite 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, charts 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, Nephrology it was recognized by the ancient Chinese ancient Greece ancient Persians ancient. Kelsey and shit Norris all ancient cultures most recognized Drako, serpent or snake in the sky so having made this connection this correlation on overlook mountain I got some astronomy software and then 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 and this petrified that was built, on it was. Also morphism beacon marking celestial north for anybody in abuse. Of this mountain which is extensive you can see the snap thirty miles in all directions So so yeah I was I. Was certainly off of that and and it just kind of scratching my head for, half a day. Say how can this be in what's the of this And since then I. Believe we had, one similar. Kind of a Tiffany discovery nets. Association I made with dance camera point the Hudson river in the mouth, of, the creek across the river? Slightly to the north And that's also 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 that their bodies painted dancing and chanting, and around the ring affiars recorded in the log of the Half Moon and that's unscrew immediately. Called this in named the dance camera point which needs devil's dance chambers And but why why was this point so important and when I, found that that aligned summer solstice, alignment with the, mouth of 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 there are many, symbolic, relationships. Around around many ancient cultures that have to do with You know elements of the sky element of the of the subterranean worlds coming together. And being you know you joined in the in the plane of the living here on the road? 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 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 the solstices but, they're also compass does Oriented to the cardinal 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 some not so much documented. But. A few instances of that but knowing directions of north south east west to ancient cultures was extremely important and they didn't have you know the kind. Of compasses we had, today Magnetic needles they they did it more through, to understanding, the movements of the sky and wonder And condition on certain days, of the year at the sunrise, sunset that allowed them to understand pretty accurately where northeast southwest these different patients work and, they they left these markers scattered across, the land and acting book has calendars and this compass. So doesn't get more practical, than. Now let's go. To. The, phones now west of, the Rockies Arnie is in granite bay California go, ahead, Arnie 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 can 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 right on the Hudson Yup In fact and. I can attest to the stone structures that were built by their LA people because like on my ethics novel my father's is the vibe wire fences followed all the. Walls and a lot of stonework that was, their way before that in colonial times but the the com- other comment I wanna make because I. Did a lot of research on the air quite Indian and they're in the mohawk? Lived in that area and one of, the striking things I've found I'm looking at pictures that, I could pull up on the very earliest camera pictures photography. Of Eric why was they didn't look like the other American Indians mahogany and the air. Co I. Don't know which. Tribes it was but they have very similar features to Europeans and I I couldn't understand that how that was and why was different. And I really mused about the culture and also their stature was a little bit? Different, they were they were. Not Not, really short you'd better Europe and I it's a. It's a questionnaire on the culture and where they. Do the allergy 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 at pct I'd like to, go to some of those sites to see but 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 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 you're right 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.
