A short while ago, Charles mentioned the book: Seeds of Knowledge. Here is a book report:
There is a new book just published, it is entitled “Seed of Knowledge Stone of Plenty” by John Burke and Kaj Halberg. The book is the result of years of studying and measuring the electromagnetic properties of Neolithic mounds, henges, and pyramids both in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Egypt.
The news in this is that the research presented in the book shows that these constructions are almost always sited on land of strong telluric currents. That is electric current running through the ground, near the surface. Why so?
Modern studies have shown that running an electrical current through seed corn, wheat, etc improves it ability to germinate and it improves it overall robustness and yield capabilities.
Ancient farmers did not practice crop rotation and did not use fertilizer. This meant that intensive farming of even good lands depleted the soil in about three year’s time so that the farmer had to move. This is called slash and burn agriculture. As human populations grew it was not always possible to move to the next valley – someone else was already there.
Perhaps it was the Shamans, perhaps it was clever Neolithic entrepreneurs, but these farmers made the connection between electromagnetic current and improved (the book shows improved by as much as three times!) crop yields.
The book shows how rock chambers, mounds, and henges were developed for the treatment of seed, because the treatment of seed was the difference between life and death.
These telluric currents are part of earth’s magnetic field lines. “Ground with lots of metal or water within it conducts … natural, daily currents particularly well. Drier and less metallic ground conducts it less well. When these two types of land intersect, we have what geologists call a conductivity discontinuity, and interesting things happen there” p. 10. What happens is that these areas produce enough electric current to treat seeds and for some (shamans perhaps?) to induce altered states of consciousness.
Now there other constructions such as rock avenues and pyramids which are even more complicated. Let’s take a look at the Giza pyramids.
The Giza plateau is the intersection of two major limestone layers: the Mokkatam and the Maadi. The pyramids were placed in a line where multiple aquifer layers surface, on an interfleuve. Interfluves are spots where, because of the multiple aquifers, there are abnormally large daily surges of electrical current and geomagnetic field strength. This, then, is the source of the current the Pyramids used.
The pyramids were built with an electrically conducting core of course local limestone with a high content of magnesium. Please note that the pyramids were covered with Tura limestone which contains little magnesium and is a poor conductor of electricity. The Tura limestone functions as an insulator. The casing was exceptionally finely built with no space between the blocks for the electricity to escape.
The great pyramid was capped with the Benben stone which of course is lost. This stone my have been an iron meteorite. The point of the structure was to focus the electrical charge from the earth below into the Benben stone at the apex.
Each spring in Egypt, March through June, there comes a great wind called the khamsin, it blows towards the north east. This wind is filled with positively charged ions. The Benben stone would be emitting negative electrons. The negative electrons would neutralize the positive ions in the air moving downwind of the Pyramid. The practical effect of such a process would be to ionize nitrogen molecules in the air to become nitrates which are readily usable by cereal plants. The pyramids, in effect, were creating airborne fertilizer to farm fields to the North East. Take a look at a map of Egypt and the three Giza pyramids point straight up the Nile flood plain towards ancient Heliopolis. All this land would have been down the khamsin wind from Giza!
The authors theorize that the shafts in the Great Pyramid lined with granite were used to adjust the ionization within the Pyramid during lulls in the khamsin winds. In other words, those iron looking handles on the shaft door may have allowed the plug to be moved and adjust the charge in the Pyramid! Not only could the Pyramids seed the fields with fertilizer, they were adjustable and controllable to some extent. Imhotep, remember the name!
Like Stonehenge, which is also discussed in the book, when the farmers developed fertilizer and its use, the henges and the Pyramids were no longer used and their meanings eventually forgotten.
This is an interesting theory which very well could be true. The science in the book is presented clearly with all the appropriate charts, maps and photographs. Even adepts might like it!
