In the Modern Olympics, the sacrificial and religious aspects of the ancient games have been substituted by an emphasis on national and cultural identity. The opening ceremony in particular sets the tone for the modern Games and presents the host nation with the opportunity to make a big statement. This takes the form of a series of spectacles that strongly reference its cultural identity and heritage. Television ensures that the images of the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as those of the athletic competitions themselves, travel instantly across the globe and help to shape the international reaction to the hosting country’s organisation of the games. The Modern Games have thus developed their own complex series of ceremonies and rituals. These have, however, been divorced from any religious or sacrificial connotations; rather they are designed to emphasise national identity under an umbrella of international cooperation.
Whether or not the structured mound with the tree is relevant does not matter because of two things: 1) rthe hecatomb featured no human sacrifices; 2) the sacrificial/religious portion has been replaced, as quoted from the same article above, with national performances.

Very odd energy, they're conducting black magic on leylines and when I stepped out on my porch was hit by a vortex type energy, just felt dizzy and been holding peace and Love and Goodness.

Aliens have already invaded terrorizing people from unworthy and untrue things.
They are working hard in their induction and misleading people.
Burning the house is the last thing that a lunatic will do to stay more in the house.
And that is what those Jins are doing to scare people from Evilness and to bring people back to faith.
Praise be upon the creator who all his jobs are accurate and for a reason.

Appreciate your participation and input. Perhaps that card deck has something to do with it too.
Maybe those who pull the strings behind the scenes won't play this card, huh!
BTW: Great website.
