When I was a teenager, my family went on holiday near Salisbury, and we visited Stonehenge. The photos really don't do it justice, and I've been
fascinated by it ever since. I've often wondered what it looked like when it was new, whether or not the stones we see now were even visible, or
were they the stone bones of a grander wooden building.
Then, more recently, I learnt of Die Glocke (German for The Bell), which is another story that sparks the imagination, of time travelling Nazis. The
only remaining evidence of it is a concrete henge, a rig that housed the Bell, and there is speculation that the henge somehow gathered or contained
energy, possibly from ley lines, and powered the Bell in it's transit through time.
It made me wonder, could that have been the original purpose of Stonehenge. I accept the possibility that life exists elsewhere in the universe,
civilisations that were old before we were young. I believe that there could be civilisations out there who have passed the point where they view the
universe as "out there", in the same way that many people today view themselves as citizens of the world instead of one particular country.
I believe it's possible that many of these ancient sites, like the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, could be actually quite ordinary, functional pieces
of equipment, installed by one of these civilisations on arrival on a new world, to generate and manipulate power.
Archaeologists are very quick to label things as temples or tombs. I daresay in 1000 years that archaeologists of that time could decide that Wembley
stadium was a temple (although, they may not be too far off the mark with that one). Just because we in our ignorance label something as a temple has
no bearing on what the building was actually used for.
