The Tintagel Labyrinths are a symbol. some say they are the waterway maps of Atlantis some say graffiti however, they are actually none of these
things. It is a map. A map to ones inner self. The idea is that you start at the outside and are led deeper and deeper into yourself by following the
maze inwards. You trace the rout with your finger. In the same way as some use mantras (repeated sayings) or oooooooooooomssss to get to an altered
state. Or some use drugs. Anyhow the end result is the same, you get to a place where you can comune with your inner self. The remoteness of the
Tintagel labyrinths but closeness to the sea (a source of food) and a river (a source of drinking water) suggests a nearby community which would use
this area as an initiation area. A place to worship, bury your dead and become a man. Or tha fact that there are two of them, could suggest a bonding
between a man and a woman, who trace them together, and become one with the earth as they reached the centre and then be bonded by spirits in the
otherworld. At any rate now it is a site for pagans of all genres to visit, feel at one with and join with nature. As for black labyrinth, this could
mean the one in us all, or it could mean that in the past one was found that was carved into some kind of black rock, like Polyphant stone or granit.
But all that is fact, is that it is intended for path working. And what is interesting is, that it bears a remarkable resemblance, in a simplistic
way, to the cross section of a brain, (inner map?)To reach ones inner self. I realise this is an ancient thread but i found it quite byaccident, had
planned a visit to there today, so i felt the need to speak up. What a cool site this is as well. I read the book many years ago when it was banned in
the UK and i am glad its spirit survived.
