Georgia Guidestones 2014

The Georgia Guidestones monument is one the most mysterious constructions on Earth, at least among constructions as new as it is. It stands on top of a prominent rise alongside a main road a few miles north of Elberton, Georgia USA and its origins are surrounded in controversy and enigma. Nobody knows who was behind it. We only know that in 1979 a local firm of granite masons was hired to build the monument by a man calling himself “RC Christian”. This Mr Christian was clearly very rich because the project was an expensive one; the only problem is that RC Christian wasn’t his real name. Nobody knows who his real name is and his identity remains unknown to this day. The Georgia Guidestones are over nineteen feet high, made of granite and are manifestly inspired by the ancient Neolithic monuments of Europe. They consist of four upright oblong slabs, aligned to the points of the compass like ancient megalithic sites often are, and a central pillar on top of which is a square capstone. A short distance away is an additional block with an English inscription outlining some basic, but also cryptic and incomplete, information about the structure; it includes the slogan: Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason. This block also announces that a time capsule is buried beneath the monument, but the instructions given about when it should be unearthed are unfinished. Nobody knows what is inside the alleged time capsule nor is there any evidence that anything is buried at the site. However, it is the main inscription on the upright slabs that is the most contentious and relevant part of this issue. It is a list of ten clauses which form some kind of revolutionary constitution for how the world should be governed, according to the author. It reads as follows:    
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely, improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language. Rule passion, faith, tradition and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally, resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth, beauty, love, seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth- leave room for nature, leave room for nature.
The list is repeated eight times in eight of the world’s principle languages: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
Some of the clauses sound undeniably progressive, but others are more loaded and could indeed have very sinister implications. The Georgia Guidestones were unveiled in March 1980 and quickly became very popular with New Age believers, liberal political activists and environmentalists. Several weddings have been held there. Yoko Ono called the site "a stirring call to rational thinking". However the conspiratorial activist Mark Dice considers them “The Ten Commandments of the Antichrist!” and has asked that the Elbert County authorities, who own the site today, demolish it. I myself find the Georgia Guidestones deeply unsettling and malevolent. Even the superficially benign proclamations when applied practically can only result in a world of very authoritarian global government with extremely limited independence for nations, communities and individuals. The statements relating to population levels and reproduction are a very blatant incitement to a massive forced human cull and eugenics; see here for more details: It has been described as a “blueprint for the New World Order”, and to be honest, if it’s not intended that way it still might as well be. The strange thing is that since it was erected thirty-four years ago there have been some alterations which are as surreptitious as the original working. Most notably in 2009 somebody fitted a corner placard on one of the uprights. This was later inscribed with the numbers 20 and 14. What does this mean? Could it mean the year 2014? Well, that is the year at the time of writing; does this mean some major event is due to happen this year? The Elbert County authorities have now removed the placard, but in doing so they revealed it to be a cuboid block with a longer hidden inscription. The whole of it now reads: 8 16 20 14 MM JAM. This is meaningless; could it be a message in code? If so can the code be broken? If the row of numbers 8 16 20 14 refer to the 16th of August 2014 then that date has already passed… thankfully. Who put that extra piece on the Guidestones, and why? Was it “RC Christian” back again or somebody else operating independently? There are no answers here, only more questions. See:

i Ben. Thank you for the fascinating article. I believe you have opened up a topic that I have long suspected. I believe that those in the elite hemisphere have hijacked the Pagan culture using such stones as this and 'mystical' symbology to allow deviant and as you state malevolent agendas and subtext to be integrated into it, NAMELY POPULATION CONTROL, DEVISION in the guise of disturbing engineered progressive, emperical esotericism. Of coarse the fact is that population rise and effects are wholly determined by those within this circle who may actually believe they are doing right, not knowing the social mind manipulation and geo engineering aspects and the fact that resources are not shared equally. We need to be careful that spirituality is not used to furnish any kind of dual, devisive agendas. In a growing world of polarity we must insure that the creative emptiness of true spirituality is not broken down into very subtly authoritarian and devisive formulas such as inscribed on these stones. Yes Ben, there is something wrong here, especially when the individual represents the 'group'. Ah, that group again!.The aspiration of totality that we all 'have' to be a part of where we must 'close ranks' but against whom are we closing ranks against, here we run the risk of finding out that we are not included in this rank afterall. What is this group if not just another New World Order?. The fallacy of this type of argument is that the notion of human freedom/dignity rests upon scientifically 'unprovable' or 'unverifiable' allegations. When we look with the Ego centred purely emperical eye we cannot find the proverbial 'ghost in the machine' so we they say may as well accept the machine and polish it, but this is a facile argument. The fact that we cannot reduce our interior selves to a scientifically quantifiable formula or the 'voice of the master' like this is the very reason why it remains of vital importance to human life to transcend it's current stagnation. Author H.P Lovecraft wrote this powerful statement that seems to stir in me similar sentiment; "“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”. Take care. '

Another thing to add is that nobody would deny that childhood experience for example and our outer social circumstances we appear to have been fortunately or 'unfortunately'born into is highly formative, or that certain genetic determinants are a factor. But we have absolutely no reason to suppose that these factors are ALL determining. This has been proven through the ancient and archaic knowledge of self realization that has been distorted by western academia and the Judeo-Christian tradition linked to royalty and the elite 'chosen ones'. I think this kind of monument will become more common to appease the growing number of individuals moving further than the sea of Galilee to find refreshment, those seeking a new technological based system to play with and another that appears esoteric and pagan-ish but ultimately is the same thing just in a false outer garb.

You're welcome, X. Glad you liked it. And you're absolutely right about the Elite hijacking Pagan culture. See my films and articles on Milton Keynes and its "neo-Neolithic" stone circles I think my trip to the Findhorn community taught me a lot about what is wrong with a lot of conventional spirituality, from the New Age. I watched a very new agey DVd about 2012 by Sharron Rose (Jay Weidner's wife) and it was downheartening. She really liked the Guidestones. Bloody hell!

Hey Ben. I Will check out the Milton Keynes blog and you are right about 'New Age' as a concept which usually involves paying for services rendered, a concept that I have always been uncomfortable with to a certain extent. Chat soon hope all is well.
