this little corner of the universe

Jupiter’s opposition in the constellation Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer could be interesting for the children of the S-tones!

“A map does not just chart, it unlocks and formulates meaning; it forms bridges between here and there, between disparate ideas that we did not know were previously connected.” 

― Reif Larsen, The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet

On May 19 of 2016, M moved from Chicago to Chattanooga and it didn’t take long for him to see the uniqueness and beauty of my hometown. Nestled in the mountains and along the Tennessee River, it does have a somewhat ‘hidden’ aspect to it. Fifteen miles in any direction from town and you will be in the country. What M noticed is that there is an energy that defines this place with unique and sometimes even peculiar places that define the border of this place he started calling “the realm”, and the new map goes beyond what you’d see on any “official” map.

Things worth noting about the map of the realm are: how many of the places are made of stone, either natural or built by man (stone or brick). Stones and bones, are a dense manifestation of US, however, could it be that they are also a type of antenna that connects us, which would allow for a manifestation that is not so dense and answer many questions we have after seeing the supernatural things we see.

Another thing, on May 19, 2016, Mark, I mean Mars, was making a close approach to Earth. And Mars is ruled by Aries, which corresponds to the head. Probably some people are rolling their eyes because here I go again talking about planets, but that is how I see it and there is no denying that what is above is part of what is below. Period.

There is a connection that keeps popping up between Cornwall, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, more Scotland and a family connection that is speaking to us through the s-tones.

Also worth noting, is the EgyptAir Airbus A320 flying overnight from Paris to Cairo crashed into the eastern Mediterranean Sea on 19 May 2016. All 66 passengers and crew on board Flight MS804 died. If you look at things the way I do, you see it like this: Mars (of the one mind) is getting close to earth, a plane crashes into the Mediterranean (ME, or middle EARTH, which is HEART or the core), heading in the same direction, to the southeast from where it started. Why the tragic story to go along with something wonderful? It’s a common theme on Merovee, to see this occurrence. IMO, the more of a connection we make, the more threatening it is to whatever you’d like to call the constricting reality that seems to want to keep everything penned up.

This weekend, Jupiter (the planet of King Jupiter and symbolizes abundance and expansion), will be at opposition and will be a good time to get a good look at him and his moons. Interestingly, Jupiter is right now located in the constellation Ophiuchus.

There seems to be a tapestry woven here, as there is a band from Wiltshire, England called “Ophiuchus” formed by twin brothers in 1986!

Also this weekend, is the Jewish holiday, Shavuot. It celebrates god giving the Torah on Mt. Sinai. S-tone tables? ‘Sin’, as in Sinai, means “moon”.

(more of this weaving …I searched ‘Wiltshire’ on etymonline)

That was a preface to the main part, the Marking of the Realm!

The Realm’s borders are marked in the North by Greenback Castle; Roosevelt Mountain Overlook; the Cherokee towns of Chota and Tanasi, those towns now being underwater; The Island Fort built by the 4th Earl of Loudon; and the nearby fort which is called Fort Southwest Point, though it stands in the North; and 

Greenback Castle built by Junior Banks with bricks and stone

The Realm’s borders are also marked in the North by the Old Rock House Tollbooth near Sparta; the homesteaders community around Byrd Creek and the nearby hemlock forest; The Ozone Falls; and the octogonal Lookout Tower of the Cumberlands.

The Realm’s borders are marked in the South by Werner’s Unfinished Castle in Cloudland; Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden; Cathedral Caverns; and Corpsewood Manor; and 

Paradise Gardens

The Realm’s borders are also marked in the South by Castle Hawk; Swamp Creek; the Cherokee town of New Echota; The Pearly Gates in the Twin Town of McCaysville-Copperhill; and the Refuge of the Tigers and the wild cats on Untamed Mountain. 

Because TEnnessee and TExas are connected, and we all are under the sky.

The Realm’s borders in the East are marked by the Castle of Joy; the place called Indian Boundary and the Tail of The Dragon; the Eastern edge of The Nantahala Forest, the Eastern edge of The Chattahoochee Forest; and the white cross and jar of moonshine which marks Andy Sherman’s grave on Huckleberry Knob; and

The Tail of the Dragon

(S-tones, sine waves?)

The image above reminds me of this event (imagine if you could see the image from above you would see the s-tone wave snaking through it).

The Realm’s borders in the East are further marked by Excalibur Castle; Eberhardt’s Lookout; the Cherokee inscriptions near Great Spirit Mountain in Manitou Cave; the mountain called Standing Indian; the Old Stone Fort of the Moon-Eyed People and The Welsh prince called Madoc; and The Fields of The Wood,  wherein lies The Stone Scroll of The Ten Commandments.

The Realm’s borders in the West are marked by The Bark Camp Barrens; The Abode of the Adiyogi and The Great Mahima Hall of The Sadghuru Jaggi Vasudev; Sir John Templeton’s Castle; The Walls of Jericho; The Great Stone Door; and Bone Cave, in which were found the bones of giants or human beings of unusual size or, according to the government, the bones of a giant ground sloth, that being a kind of animal no longer known to exist; and 

Rock Island State Park currently maintains 10 cabins, 60 campsites, and a boat ramp. The park’s Center Hill Lake section contains a natural sand beach and a popular fishing area known as the “Blue Hole.” Hiking trails include two trails that access the north and south banks of the Great Falls Gorge, and a 3-mile (4.8 km) trail that runs along the Collins River. Deer, woodpeckers, and wildflowers are commons sites along the park’s trails.

(Rock Island was a location for the filming of movie The Specialist, starring Sylvester Stallone (Rocky!) and also starring Sharon Stone!)

The Realms’s borders in the West are also marked by Spring Castle; The Manor at Falcon Rest; The ruins of The Gager Limestone Enterprise; Sherwood Forest; Lost Cove; and the Indian ceremonial grounds of The Old Stone Fort, whose gateway faces the Exact Spot on the Horizon where The Sun rises during the Summer Solstice; and

Other places marking borders of The Realm include the Southern and Eastern regions of the Chatthoochee Forest; the Eastern regions of the Nantahala Forest; the Little Tennessee River; the Anna Ruby Falls and Raven’s Ridge, both being places from which one can enter the German town of Helen; the Clear Fork creek, which runs roughly to the south and west of the British town of Rugby;  the Lands of the Snowbird people near Robbinsville town; the Cherokee lands around the town of Murphy, the territory of the Snake Nation, the place called Pandora’s Forest, and also…

the region of Mecca; the Lost City of the Creek or Itza Maya; the Cherokee Mother Town of Kituwah and the Cherokee towns of New Echota, Chota and Tanasi; and the towns of Rockwell, Gadsden, Guntersville, Viola, McMinnville, Cowen, Arab, Sparta, Carthage, Egypt, Rome, London, Athens, Manchester, Glasgow, and Florence.

Those places Mark the border of the ‘realm’. If there are any ideas about how to better harness this connection that is speaking to us, I would love to hear! (receiving, receiving…)
