“Leave Room For Nature”: The Enigmatic Georgia Guidestones

“Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason”
–The Georgia Guidestones

There is a uniquely American monument that you won’t see discussed very often in all the standard encyclopedias and travelogues: The Georgia Guidestones.

Located in Elbert County, Georgia, the Guidestones are somewhat of a “modern Stonehenge”—consisting of 5 massive slabs of granite topped with a sixth slab. Engraved on the slabs is a whole host of information, including something resembling almost a secular “Ten Commandments”:

That Old-Timey Secret Society Art

Untitled.jpg

I’ve always been fascinated by the culture of old-time American freemasonry…it is like this weird blending of the super square and conservative with the highly occult.

Atlas Obscura has a collection of images from the new book As Above, So Below: Art of the American Fraternal Society 1850-1930 which include photos, banners, and magic lantern slides.

The best-known of these, outside the 1989 book Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy (which became the basis of the Oliver Stone movie JFK), is 2001’s Rule By Secrecy.

“Nothing happens anywhere in the cosmos except in interaction with the human mind.”
–Mark Booth (a.k.a. “Jonathan Black”)

I’ve just read through Mark Booth’s 2010 book The Secret History Of The World for the 3rd time, and I thought I should just dash off a quick review while it’s still fresh.

With the all-seeing eye on the cover and provocative title, The Secret History Of The World does initially seem like one of those fringy Illuminati!!!-type tomes purporting to tell you what They have been trying to hide from the public. And yeah…there are certainly parts like that. But this book is more about the history of religion and philosophical thought throughout recorded history…and in that sense, it’s something that you can get value out of regardless of whether or not you choose to hang out at the edge of the rabbit hole or dive in.
