Pictish symbol stone discovered at Dyce

Senchus

Pictish symbols Pictish symbols: mirror (top), triple disc and notched rectangle.

A Pictish symbol stone has been discovered on the banks of the River Don at Dyce near Aberdeen. This exciting find was publicised today and is understandably attracting a lot of attention on social media. New discoveries of early medieval sculpture are as rare in Scotland as anywhere else, so the unearthing of a previously unknown Pictish stone is a significant event.

Photographs of the new stone published online show the carved symbols to be well preserved and easily identifiable. Archaeologists have recognised a triple disc, a notched rectangle and a mirror. The stone itself is an unshaped boulder with no overtly Christian carvings, so it falls into the category known as ‘Class I’. It was probably carved between the sixth and eighth centuries AD, before the influence of the Church led to Pictish sculpture becoming more sophisticated. Stones from the…

Sun Wukong and Births From Stone in World Mythology

Sun Wukong and Births From Stone in World Mythology

Journey to the West Research

Last updated: 01/27/21

This article is a greatly expanded version of this piece.

One of the many unique aspects about Sun Wukong‘s story cycle is his birth from stone (fig. 1). Chapter one of Journey to the West (Xiyouji, 西遊記, 1592 CE) describes how the 36 foot 5 inch (11.09 m) tall, 24 foot (7.31 m) circumference rock issues forth a stone egg after absorbing celestial and terrestrial energies over countless eons:

Since the creation of the world, it [the stone] had been nourished for a long period by the seeds of Heaven and Earth and by the essences of the sun and the moon, until, quickened by divine inspiration, it became pregnant with a divine embryo [xian bao, 仙胞]. One day, it split open, giving birth to a stone egg [shi luan, 石卵] about the size of a playing ball

Sir Christopher Wren’s Joke in Windsor Guildhall

inel

Take a close look (click image) at the four central columns here. Notice the dark shadows above each one? They are Sir Christopher Wren’s joke! How’s that for a bit of architectural humour? 🙂

Instead of a plague on all your houses this is a joke at the expense of your councillors!

Windsor councillors insisted that these columns be added to the Guildhall for safety reasons. (Ahem!)

Sir Christopher Wren’s four column joke in Windsor Guildhall

Sir Christopher Wren, the greatest English architect of his time, designed St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford, and founded The Royal Society. He lived in a Thamesside luxury home in Windsor and conveniently commuted to London by boat! After the Great Fire of London in 1666 which destroyed the homes of an estimated 70,000 of the 80,000 inhabitants of the city, Sir Christopher Wren was responsible for the rebuilding of many churches in London and was appointed the…

“It takes only six weeks to bring a country to crisis, after which, with a violent change of power, structure & economy, you have the period of ‘normalisation’ which may last indefinitely”. Yuri Bezmenov, ex-KGB PsyOps Specialist (speaking here in 1984, having defected to the US)

Outline: How the original ‘Brexit’ plan was supposed to have simultaneously militarised both the #TrumpPutin Presidency and #ToryAnalytica’s mainland #BrexitCoup Britain during July 2017, enabling Theresa May to call on Donald Trump for US military ‘assistance’ by staging an ‘attack’ in Scotland’s Clyde Estuary blamed on Iran. This was in order to secure both countries oil in perpetuity, whilst dragging Ireland out the EU by mobilising a US/UK led global fascism; recruitment for which –…

Gaslighting Gilligan

by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (© 2017 – free download – released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).

“It takes only six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, after which, with a violent change of power, structure and economy, you have the period of ‘normalisation’ which may last indefinitely. ‘Normalisation’ is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda”. Yuri Bezmenov, former KGB PsyOps Specialist (defector speaking here in 1984)

Synopsis: In Britain, ‘austerity’ was the #ToryAnalytica propaganda branding to drive and pretext-normalise poverty in order to choke-off economic opportunities & choices for young men. It was to ‘coincide’ with a patriotic Brexit that was to be delivered via a seemingly unconnected act of war by Iran (oil) in July 2017, military recruitment for which was (is) being driven by a methodology that was twice-precedented in the 20th Century…
