Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Back. Clem crush 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 him to order it To promote local buy local and local bookstore or did you have fun writing the book Oh 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 in disbelief for half a day so we. Had we had an GPS specialists 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 Karen's and sixth grade Cairns to, 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 Karen 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 to me that was that was what struck me is something, that was interesting listen to a about a year later that I looked 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 so much, 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 The six giant great Karen to the two, serpent effigy was all of these structures are between, sixty and, one hundred feet and legs so 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 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 apology it was recognized by the ancient Chinese. Ancient Greece the ancient Persians ancient counts Norris all ancient cultures most recognized Drako as a serpent or snake in the sky so having made this. Connection this correlation 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 believed 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 can see, the snap, thirty miles in all directions so So. Yeah I was I was certainly in all of that and and it just kind, of scratching my head for half a day say how can this. Be This And since then I believe we had one similar kind of a Tiffany or. Discovery that's the association I made goods dance camera point on the Hudson. River 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 mouth of the creek Dad's Gummer 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 hunching, about forty miles north, of Manhattan and you. Know natives pay their bodies painted dancing and chanting and around the ring fires reported in the log of the Half Moon and Crew immediately called this, devil worship dance camera point which means devil's dance chambers And why why was this point so important and when I found it that, aligned summer, solstice alignment at the mouth of the creek right across the river you know I understood why this is such an important spiritual place where they would have held their ceremonies where. 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 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 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 even large boulders and. Documents are not just what we would. Call calendar stones and that they allied. With the solstices but, they're also compass does In into the cardinal directions they'll have no noses or prominent faces and coins that have been oriented to north south east and, west usually north south north east and. West. South sounds 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 Know the kind of compasses, we had today 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 will be different orientations work and, they they let these markers scattered across the land and. Acting book has calendars and, this. Compasses 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 Ernie Yeah hi I'm from. California now but I grew, up. In that area My, father had a farm in Hyde Park When I on my bike under ten I lived on and. My grandparents had a hotel and pine. Plains I'm sure these names are all familiar. Hyde Park is were Roosevelt was right Dr Yeah. Right on the Hudson Yup in fact Paolo And I can attest to the stone structures that were built, by their LA people. Because like my for, example my father is fine the by wire. Fences followed all stonewalls and a lot of stonework. That was their way before that in colonial times but com other comment I wanna make 'cause I did a lot of research. On the air quay Indian. And they're the mohawk it's 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 I was they didn't look like. A other American Indians mahogany and the, air co I don't know which tribe there was but, they have very similar features to Europeans. And I I. Couldn't understand that how that was why was different and I really mused about the culture. And also, their stature with a little, bit different. They, were they were not. Really. Short better Europe You can't and I it's a. It's a questionnaire on the culture and where do. You 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 and I'd like to go to some of those sites and 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 the land, public land where you can walk all. Over the Feis. 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 must 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 canton Tennessee.
