American Stonehenge: Monumental Instructions for the Post-Apocalypse

An article in Wired, American Stonehenge: Monumental Instructions for the Post-Apocalypse, describes the Georgia Guidestones, a striking granite monument built by a secretive group, built as an astronomic compass/calendar / clock  and inscribed with a New-Age-ish message to the ages in 12 languages (8 modern: Swahili, Hindi, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, English, Hebrew and Arabic; 4 dead: Sanskrit, Classical Greek, Babylonian Cuniform and Egyptian Hieroglyphics). The front-man for the cabal that built this thing used the pseudonym R.C Christian, which “may be a tribute to the legendary 14th-century founder of Rosicrucianism, Christian Rosenkreuz” (per Wikipedia).

The actual text on the granite slabs is not very impressive, but one can only speculate what hidden messages might be encoded in its stilted prose…

Or perhaps, like has been said of the original Rosicrucian conspiracy, the actual secret is in the the act of being mysterious itself, the clandestine  funding, the exotic inscriptions, the very flamboyant behaviour of erecting a cryptic monument from the world’s finest granite, aren’t distractions obscuring a hidden agenda: they fulfill the hidden agenda, simply by making the world a more mysterious place.
