In ancient and modern times, a cairn or stone circle is an arrangement of stones used as a boundary marker, a memorial setting, or as a burial site. Cairns are usually conical in shape and were often erected on high ground because the land was too difficult to excavate as a burial site and to ward off wild animals which might disturb the body and burial ground. Cairns date back as far as and from the Neolithic Period and the Early Bronze Age.
Moreover, Telluric currents arise from electrical charges attempting to gain equilibrium between geographic regions of different electric potentials and fields as a result from low-frequency electromagnetic waves from outer space, particularly from the magnetic field on the surface of the earth or magnetosphere, and moving electrical charged particles in the ionosphere and the atmosphere. Geoscientists have often use Telluric currents to map subsurface structures and topographies, sedimentary rock basins (including river, bay, delta, beach, and ocean basins), layered rocks, volcanoes, faults, and fault lines.
The phrase "Ley Lines" was supposedly coined by Alfred Watkins (1855-1935) of Herefordshire, England, who was a businessman, amateur archaeologist photographer, and antiquarian, on June 30, 1921, after he had discovered a straight alignment passing through various ancient sites and churches on a map of the Blackwardine area. Watkins soon became convinced that these Ley lines were possible Neolithic trading routes; and from there, he published his findings in his book Early British Trackways (1922) which did not receive much attention. In 1925, he published more of his theories and findings about Ley lines in his book The Old Straight Track which gained attention and interest. Watkins’ massive information gathering, research, and his mathematical proof attempted to pointed out and support that the distribution of the key points along the Ley lines could not have resulted by mere chance and that the more points he found to lie on a single straight line on a map would improve or increase the credibility of the Ley alignment. Ley lines are a form of symbolic landscaping if you will.
Some very familiar key examples of natural or geological Ley lines alignments are:
1. The Ancient Pyramids of China, Egypt, Mexico (Mayan & Aztec), and Greece
2. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
3. The Recumbent Stone Circles in North East Scotland
4. Stonehenge in England
5. Chinle Petrified Forest in Arizona
6. The Eastern French Village of Alaise and the Jura Mountains
7. Easter Island
Other researchers followed Watkins' theories and continue to conduct research about Ley lines. Dion Fortune, a British Occultist, conceptualized in her novel entitled The Goat-Foot God (1936) that there are "lines of force or lines of power" connecting the megalithic sites of Avebury and Stonehenge. Leys continue to be a metaphysical mystery and esoteric phenomena to this day; and the fact still remains that the Earth, along with its natural forces, and everything within it have associative energies which influence all organic and inorganic matter.
