Gravity is really a frequency, part of Einstein’s Unified Field. Crystallized blocks of basalt need only be resonating at the frequency of gravity, 1012 hertz, or the frequency between short radio waves and infrared radiation, and they will lose their weight. Crystals, even basalt crystals, are ideal for resonating in such a ay. If that was the way that the stones “magically” flew through the air, then they might have spun upward and to the east, just as the legend says ,because of the spin of the Earth. The centrifugal force of the Earth’s spin caused the stones to rise. Then it might be possible for people to ride on the logs of basalt, and then help lower them into the place at Nan Madol as the vibration lessened, an the stones gained weight again. ~ Dr. Randall Pfingston
Normally, I try to touch upon subjects that are beyond the mundane. Daily life is mundane enough. Why would anyone want to read about what I had for breakfast this morning, or whether my cocker spaniel looks cute in a dress (SHE DOES!!!!). The subjects I choose usually conjure themselves out from between my ears, as I am reading random bits of knowledge which happen to link up in odd ways.
It seems to occur most often when I am working on my writing because that is when I do most of my research (and it is a labor of love since these postings and pages don’t write themselves). Sometimes, the research is straightforward, meaning what you see is what you get. But sometimes, it is an offshoot of something that is important, but it—in and of itself—may not seem to be a critical component of the entirety. What has turned out to be more true than not is the fact that anything that is considered important will usually not be made up of inconsequential components. An important object or subject will usually always be composed of entities which are, in and of themselves, relatively important in some way, shape or form.
Such is the importance of rocks.
Yes, I did say rocks.
Rocks are important because they are the base upon which everything resides. We often overlook them because, let’s face it, they’re not all that terribly exciting (unless they’re mounted on jewelry, and then they’re AWESOME!). But in this instant, I’m not interested in the gem kinds of rocks. I’m interested in the ones that are used for building structures that will last for thousands and thousands of years. Those types of megalithic structures require certain kinds of rocks—ones that have staying power, ones that will last through the ages past the vagaries of time and tide, and past the ravages of war and unnatural destructive forces. Those kinds of rock have to be hard. Rock hard. Metal hard, even.
Interestingly enough, the ancient Vietnamese word for rocks means metal. To my ancient ancestors, metal and rocks are so similar that they can be interchangeably called kim. That is because there are certain properties that they share. They are both born from the same environment, they are quarried together, and they have many of the same properties. Magnetism is one of those properties that does not reside only with metals but also rocks.
Amongst the Earth’s most common rocks, basalt and granite are rockstars. They are most often used to create megalithic monuments such as Nan Madol in the Pacific Ocean and the pyramids of Egypt and Central America, but their abundance is not the reason why they are most often used. After all, there are other types of rocks (of the sedimentary kind) that are far easier to be worked, and much lighter in weight. There is a very compelling reason why anyone would want to quarry such hard and heavy rocks out of mountains and cliff sides and then transporting them, sometimes for miles and miles, to their final destination, and that is resonancy.
Of course, as with all things complex, there are shades of the same grey. In this case, the exact same lava flow cools in two ways, and they are opposites of each other. Basalts cool on the surface so they are dark, fine-grained, thin, and heavy. Granite, on the other hand, cools slowly, deep within the rock so it is lighter-hued, coarse-grained, and lightweight*). *When I say lightweight, I don’t mean feather light. I mean it is light enough to float on top of the basalt, which is far more dense. Let’s start with basalt.
Basalt rocks are found mostly in the ocean and make up the oceanic bedrock. It is different than the rock which makes up continental shelves even though, like the continental shelf rocks, it is also born from lava flow. Like the flow of blood gushing from a wound in the Earth after a particularly violent volcanic eruption, lava discharges and then cools, turning into igneous rocks.
Among the varied and abundant basalts of the world, andesite is a rock star. It is extrusive, meaning that it is born when hot lava flow hits water, cooling its surface rapidly. This causes andesite to become extremely hard, dense, and very dark in color because none of the minerals have not had a chance to accumulate.
It is one of the hardest basalts and is evenly infused with quartz. With so much quartz inherent in its makeup, andesite is also capable of creating a piezoelectric effect when it is under pressure.
Granite is the intrusive version of basalt. It cools slowly, deep within the bedrock and slowly becomes part of the continental shelf. This slow, steady cooling allows for various minerals and crystals to be able to form.
As time goes by, all the darker, heavier metals and minerals sink down, allowing the lighter-colored minerals and crystals to coalesce, causing a highly textured and colorful rock.
Andesite’s twin brother is diorite. Rising up from the heavy layer of its brother’s weight, diorite is bright and colorful, sporting a profusion of embedded minerals and crystals. It is not has hard and nowhere nearly as heavy as andesite, but that is not to say that it is not a hard stone. These two rockstars are used exclusively to create the capstone on the pyramids because of their magnetic powers as well as their resonance abilities.
In the case of Nan Madol, it is entirely made of basaltic andesite, and there is a very important reason why the ancient builders insisted on using this most dense material to create the megalithic structure of Nan Madol. The reason has to do with location.
