What would make a compass oscillate 30 degrees to the east?
On July 7, 2012, I accompanied a group of hikers up the slopes of the Track Rock Archaeological Zone. The group included both local residents, furious over the recent sawing down of over 100 trees by the US Forest Service to block the trail and members of the California Sierra Club. The site was so overgrown with vines and such nasty things as poison ivy, it was extremely difficult to figure out where we were. At the time, I had not drawn a map of the archaeological zone. Somewhere west of the acropolis, I was astonished to see my compass oscillating regularly to 30 degrees east of Magnetic North. The needle was not “jumping” starkly, but it was not moving slowly either. Obvious some form of gravity or magnetic wave was coming from the ground or the air. I have not been able to find the location we were at because the terrain looks so different in the winter time. Do any you have any ideas what caused this oscillation?
A friend of mine in Lee County, AL, who is a civil engineer from Auburn University, has been after me for years to do more scientific testing at Native American heritage sites. To emphasize that suggestion, he gave me a Geiger Counter for my birthday today! It is not one of those fancy ones, used by uranium prospectors, but it will be able to measure ground source (radon), nuclear fallout from nuclear energy plants and nuclear bomb explosions, alpha rays, beta rays, xrays and cosmic rays for a specific location. That should be interesting.
Many of you from other parts of the Southeast would probably like me to do more onsite studies in your neck of the woods, but that just is not possible now under the current situation. I am much better off than I was five years ago, but still have modest financial resources, no girlfriend/wife to look after the house in my absence and a 15 year old car. HOWEVER, within a 15 minute drive from my house are at least 74 Native American mounds and ceremonial sites, plus a still unknown number of terrace complexes. Some of the mounds are quite large. I am one mile from the Arnold Mound, 2 miles from the Kenimer Mound, 3 miles from the Amana Mound and 4 miles from the Nacoochee Mound. I am 2 1/2 miles from the oldest known Chickasaw village, which contains two mounds and a mile or so from several Uchee villages, dating back to at least 1000 BC. In fact, most of the proto-Creek towns in this area were originally Uchee Villages. The region abounds in petroglyphs and rock structures. Thus, I could not live in a more strategic location to carry out the research that I do. Then we have the problem of demonically-possessed young white males, looking for someone to hate and kill. I told you this nation was going insane. We’ve had two mass shootings in two days. I have to be very vigilant and well armed now, when I go out into the boonies alone. Hope you understand the situation and will enjoy the research that I am able to do.
My cousin, Dr. Ray Burden, sent me an email from Greenland, suggesting that I check out locations of major magnetite deposits. There is a massive deposit of magnetite under my feet, which extends over to the Alec Mountain Stone Oval and Arnold Mound. That explains a lot. There is some magnetite near the Track Rock Terrace Complex, but not near the scale of what is right here. Now I know why lightning came up out of the ground and shocked the liverpool out of me.
