I think most of you will enjoy this article on the mystery of the Georgia Guidestones.Called the Georgia Guidestones, the monument is a mysteryĂ˘â‚¬â€ťnobody knows exactly who commissioned it or why. The only clues to its origin are on a nearby plaque on the groundĂ˘â‚¬â€ťwhich gives the dimensions and explains a series of intricate notches and holes that correspond to the movements of the sun and starsĂ˘â‚¬â€ťand the "guides" themselves, directives carved into the rocks. These instructions appear in eight languages ranging from English to Swahili and reflect a peculiar New Age ideology. Some are vaguely eugenic (guide reproduction wiselyĂ˘â‚¬â€ťimproving fitness and diversity); others prescribe standard-issue hippie mysticism (prize truthĂ˘â‚¬â€ťbeautyĂ˘â‚¬â€ťloveĂ˘â‚¬â€ťseeking harmony with the infinite).
What's most widely agreed uponĂ˘â‚¬â€ťbased on the evidence availableĂ˘â‚¬â€ťis that the Guidestones are meant to instruct the dazed survivors of some impending apocalypse as they attempt to reconstitute civilization. Not everyone is comfortable with this notion.
