As Above, So Below - Australia’s Stonehenge and the Great Stone Complex

25th February 2014 By Steven Strong Contributing Writer for Wake Up World We have written extensively about the site Frederic Slater, President of the Australian Archaeological Education and Research Society, proposed was “Australia’s Stonehenge” and a complementary site we have named “Adam’s Garden”. What hasn’t been made clear in these articles – nor is still fully understood by my research team – is that these sites and their surroundings form part of a much larger complex. There is more to this than the two sites mentioned, but owing to pressing issues of privacy and our justifiable concern regarding vandalism and government interference, we can offer little in specifics regarding geography and location. Despite this, when viewing these two sites in combination with others in the close vicinity, there are many features that are as ancient as they are revealing. Where did the Sandstone come from? Before attempting any translation of the Standing Stones narrative, we must first address some pragmatic considerations upon which we were originally unable to throw any light. When first examining the Standing Stones, one fact highlighted in Slater’s correspondence was of prime interest. Nearly all the marked and shaped stones found on both the larger and smaller mounds were

there are many rocks shaped into pyramids at Adams’ Garden. Just as it is at the Standing Stones. marked and shaped rocks (along with many other goods and sacred objects) were sent out from the coast to the Standing Stones site. From here. a 9 metre (30 ft) by 5 metre (16. angles and markings that are decidedly artificial. The strength and motion of a tsunami is consistent with rocks being spread between 8-10 metres (26-32 ft) into the creek and only two metres (6. and the backwash dragged the fallen stones back into the water. which logically means some of the sandstone brought onto this site came from much further inland than the fine grained rock. a 175 metre stretch of creek-bank containing tens of thousands of rocks of every conceivable type. including a marking on one rock that contains an engraving which. The jetty at Adam’s Garden That was before our first sighting of Adam’s Garden.5 ft) sandstone construction that sits higher than the surrounding shore. Surrounded by mangroves and sand. and to other places of importance.sandstone. the Forgotten Origins tribe found both fine and coarse grained sandstone. What only cements the connection between the sites is the structure of the shore-line at Adam’s Garden.5 ft) up the slope of the creek bank. the nearest sizeable deposit of sandstone is over 20 kilometres away.

But in our examination of the site. means “guide to truth”. in the First Language. this was undoubtedly the location from which the rocks at the Standing Stones site were transported. this exotic collection of rocks contains shapes. This in itself is challenging. A perfect place for vessels to dock. and varying greatly in colouring. it features a jetty or wharf. But how did this happen? From where did this sandstone come? And who was involved? And when? These questions were never fully answered…. and as observed by Slater. both fine and coarse grained. and that the wall collapsed around 500 odd years ago when a tsunami hit this part of the east coast of Australia. The jetty is made entirely out of sandstone rocks. We believe the 175 metre spread of tens of thousands of rocks was originally part of a rock-wall built along this section of the shore-line.

It may be remotely feasible for nomadic Original men and women to lug rocks weighing up to 50 kilograms (110 lbs) from the coast some considerable distance inland. The local black soil gets very boggy when wet. However the second. How did a people who supposedly knew nothing of the wheel. And what adds to the problem. this mound of dry material is extremely porous which means that tyres don’t get bogged in the wet.500 cubic metres of fill that make up this artificial formation. it is widely agreed and reported in the press that this mound . So foreign is this 70 metre by 10 metre (230 ft x 32 ft) mound that a large section of the mound was gouged out to use as road fill for the surrounding flat farms. is that there is no less than 3. large scale quarrying or slave labour. and in contrast. of metal blades. mound is made of clay.

No-one is claiming that this site is European. extremely sacred. for those relying on traditional European historical accounts. Quite simply. ocean-going ships. there is a second much larger problem with on-site logistics still unresolved. white and red sand and thousands upon thousands of sandstone rocks.

Rather than debate possibilities.and was often employed by Councils and Governments in these endeavours. .5 ft) in width and no less than 210 metres (690 ft) in length. whether weighing one kilogram or a tonne. Where have all the teachers gone? Frederic Slater was without peer in the state of NSW in deciphering Original script and anything Egyptian – the ideal skill-set for an archaeologist in this region . The manner of transportation of the heavy rocks at Mullumbimby and the exotic fill at the smaller mound at the Standing Stones site. Now it gets heavier…. suggested this was all the result of an old bulldozer clearing a track down to the mangroves. were originally shipped to and unloaded at the jetty which forms part of Adams’ Garden.

Their origin through official channels is unknown. there are numerous sandstone slabs. Standing in nearby Mullumbimby. One unknown in this equation is logistics. There are thousands of rocks. which came from ‘somewhere’ nearby and repositioned within the town and parks as features and bearers of plaques. but not unknown to our research team. Just behind the sandstone jetty is a road of perhaps 2 metres (6. which snakes around the southern section of the hill which rises up over 35 metres (115 ft). all igneous. nor any account in Frederic Slater’s translation to draw upon. all of considerable weight. were moved and positioned into two Original rock arrangements at Adam’s Garden.

The whole scenario gets very complicated when trying to understand how igneous rocks. weighing over five hundred kilograms. above and below the road that were have either been cleared from the road or positioned in support.

Consistent to that noble purpose and goal. spiritual.

Slater stated “you are working in a much higher cult which I doubt is understood by present day aborigines (sic) even in remote parts. sign. factory or metal was assumed to be made in pre-European Australia. The teachers have all gone”. Slater insisted that the “mound” upon which the 185 Standing Stones originally stood was “the oldest form of temple in the world”. now and to come”. The basis of all knowledge As I have presented my team’s extensive archaeology and oral accounts substantiating an ancient Egyptian presence in Australia. one of the Original custodians of the First Language . Slater noted that “within this temple you will find… the basis of all knowledge. what may surprise is that Slater was no less forthright in allocating a precedence and pedestal over 70 years before us.who came on site with us when our team investigated the mounds and surrounding archaeology. chariots. some critics have relented minimally – by granting potential visiting rights. However many are still clouded by materialistic concepts of civilisation and progress. opportunities seem remote for direct contact with people who can understand and speak. all history and all forms of writing. Knowing that pyramids. wheel. As such. “There is no mistaking that the Aborigines… gave not only to the Egyptians their knowledge and foundation of hieroglyphs and their philosophy.

When corresponding with his colleague. And as radical as this statement may seem. this is one of the few times Slater was mistaken. and one that is supported by our Original advisors.Karno Walker . cities and columns were built in Egypt and no permanent structure. we can readily understand why he would make such a sensational claim – he had no option but to place the First Australians at the centre and beginning of everything esoteric. Slater was convinced he was in contact with the very last person knowledgeable in the First Language.” In . Now. Offering an explanation as to why ancient Egyptians were so motivated to sail such great distances. Even so. and have spoken to. Thankfully.

The biggest hurdle to overcome when assembling an interpretation of the Standing Stones’ message relates to the lack of written reference material. Slater was acutely aware this sentence was of utmost importance. he was confident that “you will find the basis of that language on the mound”. And as Karno reminded us many times. All other languages are merely derivative and therefore of limited use in deciphering the ‘mother-tongue’. what these words actually mean when read in combination and context was not always clear to Slater. but just Aboriginal” Academic hurdles There can never be a definitive translation of the “Mystery of Life” found on the Standing Stones. Equally. it needs to be remembered that Slater was the resident academic in NSW on all things Original and Egyptian. alignment. On many occasions he was hired by Councils and Government departments because of his unquestionable stature and expertise. Guided by truth First amongst the passages of Slater’s translation is one sentence that could be the most seminal and cosmic statement made on the mound. spanning back “hundreds of thousands of years before”. This ancient connection through language never ceased and continues on to this very day. the Standing Stones arrangement was meant to be a tabernacle detailing the “existence of the first men on Earth. Slater’s translation was thoroughly researched (and often quite profound in its message) and he clearly went to considerable lengths to explain what each of these sacred words meant. As Slater explained “the language which we speak today is not AngloSaxon. had their genesis in Australia. not just ancient Egyptian. Undoubtedly. this is a huge call. and one that cautious academics would never ever make – and one that will surely attract criticism. additions. and his colleagues. With 20 suffixes and affixes. However.ascribing a sequence and precedence. can narrow and redefine the possibilities. When comparing the ancient Celtic tongue of Ogham. nor to anyone else of that time for that matter. our Original advisor Karno. . his Original advisor. deletions and revisions have been made over the millennia. we can still get close – and most definitely Slater. gesture and letter can have up to four meanings. But despite the lack of an authoritative printed reference.

But before lodging any objections. a vocabulary running over “28. Slater was also convinced that all languages. In the case of all derivative languages.

but literal. Slater inadvertently acknowledged there was another agent or beings that passed this knowledge on to the Original people. Under these parameters and timing. And with the knowledge that all Original Gods are indeed Sky Heroes. so below The public debate over the existence of extra-terrestrial life and the appearance of advanced space-craft began to escalate after WW2. Slater observed that “this same symbol is an Egyptian hieroglyph for Ap. Looking through today’s lens. in the absence of a literal frame of reference. it is apparent that the concepts conveyed by these Standing Stones (and by other ancient scriptures) were not meant to be metaphoric. the place in Equatorial Africa where man is said to come into existence. there were limited sightings and even less public discussion of such phenomena in the public arena before the 1940s.relating directly to the “meaning where life began”. The symbol is also the Omega of the Greeks and physiologically it represents the embryonic sack. proposing that “Moses was taught the original theological philosophy which our blackfellows followed and he in turn imparted it to the Jews”. This other-worldly mantra – that the seed of humanity (”life in a bag”) was brought to Earth “through darkness” (space) – is a prominent theme repeated throughout Slater’s translation: “Truth brought out on wings to Earth from God to Man”… “The Divine Light of God gives the soul and the fire which brought life from afar”… “The truth brought in from fire which brings life from afar”… Slater believed humanity began in Australia. and that all consequent knowledge. the Elders are always looking into the night skies in matters spirituality of ancestry. in part. In its present arrangement it reads . Before the dropping of atomic bombs. Historically. ‘on top’ is always before ‘below’. Many Original Elders and Custodians of Lore use the term “as on top. who was leading? As on top. indicating precedence. language and religions have their roots in Original philosophy and the Dreaming. If “our blackfellows followed” this philosophy. and his understanding of its ramifications was more than adequate for 1939 – but not for 2014. This phrase is never reversed. Slater had no practical frame of comparison that would lead him to interpret the repeated theme of beings who “came to Earth” from a destination “far off” as anything other than so mething symbolic – an obscure metaphor. But even in this assertion. “Guided by Truth man came to earth through darkness from the light of life that shines far off”. so below”. interpretations of similar ancient religious scriptures have also been told as metaphor. .

According to accepted curriculum. In every interpretation. Humans first begun to vocalise using the most basic sounds and assembled these crude utterances into a very primitive limited vocabulary. “Enter and learn the truth of the Divine Light”… “The Breath of God is the Divine Light of the soul”… “God came in with Light from darkness and gave man a soul and the sons of man brought in with Light became the Pillars of Heaven”… “Coming in holding a light in the beginning of life”… “God the soul came with life and His breath to man”… “Life comes in and life goes out in darkness to the Light that holds it forever”… “The soul of man came from the Immortal Light to drink the water of life from God”… I have absolutely no intention of adding anything to this selection of passages. anything of real substance was open for discussion. As the following sampling illustrates. it should come as no surprise that there is only one Dreaming story in Australia that transcends all boundaries: the story of the Seven Sisters. This Pleiadean association adds clarity to so many incongruities on these sites. In every other case. a gradual evolution led to the pinnacle of hominid ascension: the magnificent Homo sapien sapiens. could merely be calling cards from the ‘Sky Heroes’ of Pleiades. But the story of the Seven Sisters belongs to every tribe. The long-distance transportation of large amounts of fill is a task that would present no problems for an advanced race of beings from a distant constellations. for it is the story of their shared ancestry and heritage. Dreaming stories are regionspecific. bar none. describing events that led to the existence of life-forms and geography peculiar to each tribal estate. if found on a continent that was colonized by extra-terrestrial life. the Seven Sisters represents the constellation of Pleiades. What I will do is lament how far we have fallen. Restricted in number and . The most obvious contradiction relates to the conventional explanations of how human language first developed. the place from which their ancient ancestors set forth so long ago. and how out-of-kilter so many aspects of our accepted pre-history are with the depth of this ancient esoteric wisdom. The complexity of the First Language There is so much divine wisdom apparent within the “Mystery Track of Life”.With this in mind. as chronicled in the 185 Standing Stones.

It is possible that the reason these three sites are pointing towards Egypt is merely coincidental. As long as the Standing Stones stood. tribe member Adam Pippen discovered that Adam’s Garden. the official lamented that two days on site with his “team” did not reveal any disturbance of the sacred . the farmer who “owned” this land was very sympathetic.When connecting the GPS co-ordinates of three of these significant sites. the official attitude of arrogance and bullying is no different. but the connection between ancient Australia and Egypt can be found in archaeology now being shared all over the country. fines. and threatened to requisition the land and throw his family off – simply because of the political inconvenience of mounting publicity. we see this alignment as being more of the same. But government officials soon came knocking at his door. That being the case and pattern. In discussion with the official “investigator” appointed to find error or offence on my team’s part during our last on -site visit. and not only allowed access but actually assisted visitors on site and promised not to plough the area lest the rock’s position and proper alignment be upset. the farmer knew his land was lost – along with the threatened Standing Stones. would run directly through Egypt. So the farmer sent his son out the next morning with one task: to get rid of the stone arrangement. form a perfect alignment. if allowed on the same path around the globe. statutes and hostility.

So far. the authorities entrusted with the responsibility of preserving and protecting sites of this immense cultural significance have phoned and sent letters to me containing threats. But the reality is this destruction was the best possible outcome. including front page headlines reporting on “Australia’s Stonehenge”. These sites form part of a much larger complex.
