Let me say at the outset of this thread, that the following theory is my own, and does loosely touch upon my personal view that Humanity has endured
cyclic periods of high technology, followed by cataclysmic decline, but this has absolutely nothing to do with ET or aliens in any way shape or form,
so if you are expecting such discussion, this is the wrong thread.
Many examples of mysterious stone balls, of all sizes have been found across the world.
Many of us are familiar with the huge stone spheres discovered in places like Costa Rica ad many other places around the globe, some almost perfectly
spherical, others slightly oval in shape, with the largest examples weighing in excess of 15 tonnes.
The stone balls that are the subject of this thread however, are much smaller and the examples discovered so far are almost exclusively found in
Britain. The Majority of these stones are found in various places in Scotland, and are mostly spherical, some are oval and others are neither, but
share characteristics of both.
The are thought to have been created mostly by the Celts and have been dated by experts to be as old as 3000 BC, although some are thought to be
younger than this with the creation of these stones continuously being produced up until the early Iron age.
The sizes are almost always around 70mm (2.75 - 3.0 inches) though there are some exceptions with some being up to 115mm.
Historians have puzzled over the use and meaning of these stones, and while many theories have been offered, none have been firmly accepted. Theories
range from spiritual meanings, tools, tribal council meeting 'speaking stones', a form of currency, weapons etc.
Here are some images of the stones.
Some of the stones are not spherical at all, like this interesting example;
Some of the stones are highly detailed, with many different surface details, the carving of which may have been done when the stone was first carved,
or was added to existing stones much later by different tribes, such as the Celtic symbols and intricate lines on some, like this one has;
Although most of these stones have been found in Scotland, just recently, a highly ornate sphere has been discovered in an unused rice field in Costa
Rica, much smaller than the stones commonly found there and is highly reminiscent of some of the more ornate Scottish stones, as can be seen here;
Now, my theory as to what these things might actually be representative of, and how it all ties in with a long forgotten period of high technology in
our remote history.
First and foremost, for me, these stone objects represent life and fertility.
I am going to include another series of images, which when i compared them to the images i have posted of the Petraspheres, or Neolithic stone
carvings...almost blew my mind!
It was a 'lightbulb moment', which does indeed raise certainly interesting, although very unorthodox questions.
Are you ready for a 'lightbulb moment'?
Here you are;
What you are looking at Ladies and Gentlemen, are images of microscopic POLLEN. Mostly tree pollen in fact.
The resemblance to the carved stones is...uncanny and compelling.
And the 'T' shaped carved stone, that looked a little like a Neolithic hammer?
Coincidence? Anything is possible, but the amazing likeness between 'Life and fertility giving pollen', and the carved stones being found in Scotland
and elsewhere, is very strange.
The obvious question arises, if the stones are indeed representations of pollen, how could Neolithic people see microscopic pollen grains in order to
carve them on the macro scale...which brings me back to the question of higher technology, dissapeared from history and the minds of Mankind many
thousands of years ago, that modern science can no longer recognise.
