i found ley lines fascinating since a young age, and since then my views have ranged from the mystical earth serpent and rings around the world type
to the (slightly) more mundane.
i found the picture of the globe that you posted somewhat interesting - now i know that lines in the uk have been dowsed with supposed positive and
negative waves connecting at marked points, and that some have been suggested to "resurface" abroad (eg IIRC the michael/mary line that goes through
cornwall/ southern england and resurfaces somewhere near st petersburg) but is there really any decent evidence that they circle the globe?
there are apocryphal tales of the druids saying there were 13 (or 7!) major lines around the world but seeing as it was an oral tradition and so much
BS is written about the druids i seriously doubt this.
now i'm a bit older and more reticent to accept the fantastic so easily, but i do still tend to believe that they were of spiritual significance and
having visited a great many sites that fall on such lines i have felt energies there, the question for me is wether ancient britons found these
energies and then built according to them, or instead built along lines for reasons of "dominating"/owning the land and then their ritual behaviours
and beliefs then embued the sites with energy.
i'm still not sure about the dowsing though, and remain to be convinced of their existence out side of megalithic europe....
sorry, i've rambled a bit, probably as i used to love this subject many years ago and havent thought about it much for quite a long time - ypu put
forwards an interesting theory and link some interesting info to connect the dots
but i feel that they were created more along the lines of
owning a landscape, and putting one's mark on it as a culture..... afterall many of the sites of markers are geographical and not simply "placed".
