Landscape Simulacra
 
The word simulacra is normally applied to shapes seen in the natural world,in rocks,trees etc.These links will give you an idea as to how the subject is viewed by some of it's modern pioneers,not sure about the second one but he seems well into it.

http://www.gothicimage.co.uk/books/kronig.html
http://206.192.23.201/dan/connectivi...rph/eagle.html

But the simulacra i want to deal with is the sort you find on google earth.As anyone who used to pop into the holy wells thread will know,i see quite a lot of stuff in the landscape.I won't be flooding this thread with images though,unlike the last one.
There's many forms of communication in the universe from speech to the written word,telepathy,hyroglyphs,symbols,sigils,a smack in the mouth etc.Then theres whatever communication plants and animals get upto and then theres the landscape itself.Which whenever i look at it,it seems to be trying to tell me something.I think my eyes are on a different radio station to a lot of peoples though,if you know what i mean.
You know those little synchronistic moments when a series of seemingly innocuous events come together,a little glitch in the matrix if you like,but they all mean something really profound to you at that moment in time.It's as though the world stops for a split second to make you take notice of something,like it was all planned and you were meant to be wherever you were,to see the things at that moment in time.That's what these land glyphs remind me of,little glitches in the matrix,that when tied up with place names and other associated information leave me thinking the world is a very strange place indeed and we don't know the half of it,yet.
Just a curious little fella from somerset up first,from the village of rapps.
The word rapping was around long before todays current understanding of the word.The meaning is still the same though,it's expressing yourself orally.The way the field that extends from his mouth and into the village of rapps says to me that's exactly what he is doing rapping.

wandlebury ring cambridgeshire
 
Wandlebury ring in cambridgeshire was traditionally described as just an ancient hill fort.New investigations however put it in the heart of a much wider and misunderstood ritual landscape around the gog magog hills.Theres numerous accounts of ufo's and strange lights emanating from the area,one particular account involved wormwood hill right next to the ring and marked in the images below.
This stuff about the area is quite interesting.
http://wn.com/Hugh_Newman__Earth_Gri...s_Sacred_Sites

In his book circle makers andrew collins talks of bill eden,a ufo investigator.Bill visited wormwood hill and could clearly see the mound engulfed by swirling bands of light,unseen by his friend.He went onto the mound amongst the lights and immediately got an intense headache,accompanied by intense pressure on his chest and head,a bitter metallic taste and nausea and dizziness.With this came the sound of a deep tonal note,which rose in pitch the higher he climbed.He also reported a feeling that he was about to leave his physical body through the process known as astral projection,also he says he saw with his psychic eyes,crimson robed priests approaching the area in ceremonial fashion.Which ties in with new theories that this was a major centre of ceremonial activity.
So i thought i'd have a quick goog to see if i could find any evidence of anything to back this up.Hey presto the first thing i see is a big alien looking head staring right at wormwood hill.

It's eye is made of a little woodland in the field.Theres some curious markings in the head,which can be seen closer in the fourth and last image.These are repeated quite often in the immediate area in other glyphs.They remind me of the markings on the serpent mound in ohio,similar but not the same.Incidentally if you look at an image of the ohio serpent mound for a while you can clearly see two faces in the line stretching from one end to another.One pointing one way and one the other but both one and the same.The small spiral at one end being the start or ending and the faces representing man on the journey to the other embryo like end,his time on earth if you like.That's what it looks like to me anyway.

This bulls head on the worcs/warks border is probably part of a much larger landscape zodiac.Situated on farmland around ragley hall,it's snout virtually touches the hall itself.I've outlined the head with red dots,the reason i say it's probably part of a larger zodiac is the fact that the village of arrow is adjacent to the bullseye.I'm no expert on astrology or astronomy but i think saggitarius the archer fired an arrow into the eye of taurus or the star aldebaran.The bulls horn touches the roundabout above the village of arrow.

You can see the close proximity of arrow to the bullseye in the image below,a road from the village runs right past the eye.

This is a piece of simulacra that has intrigued me for some time now,it's a large horse shape on the ancient south downs way in west sussex.It's not a horse like you'd take a photo of,but the head neck and back can be seen.The line of it's back is actually marked by the south downs way,features like woodland play a part in the make up of the head,the front of which is marked by a main road running down its length.The first image is for those with a keen eye,it may take a while to spot,but i promise you it's there.There do seem to be contours in the landscape that resemble legs but not as clear as the head and back.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/7361ef8c.jpg.

I've marked the front of the horses head in this image,it runs along a main road.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/4a4594ed.jpg

This image shows the course of the south downs way,it makes the shape of the horses back and runs down it's head and across the road.

A closer view of the horses head,a shape that resembles a scorpion,made of trees can be found inside the head.It has what appears to be a claw on the left and a sting on the right,which is stinging the horse in the eye.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/269fb4ef.jpg

I've marked the claw,sting and eye in this next image.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/42b1b79e.jpg

Several tumuli and tumulus can be found along the horse,the scorpion is on land called crown tegleaze,whatever that is.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/a93a7120.jpg.

I visited the horse during the summer to do some dowsing and poking about,the eye and nose are particularly interesting features.The shape of the horse does seem to be quite natural,following the steep ups and downs of the hills,enhanced by treelines or other features showing off it's shape.

Hartfoot lane
 
I wonder why the villagers of melcombe bingham in dorset came up with the names hartfoot lane and hartfoot close,any ideas.A hart is another name for a mature stag btw.

When you see faces in things like the clouds for example, that actually don't mean anything.

If it's pareidolia for you lauren,that's cool with me.Don't think that has'nt crossed my mind,but in the end i decided that was'nt the case on the whole,some of it maybe,but not all of it.

curly 19-01-2012 07:21 PM

If you get time,have a look at the link below,point k which is at the bottom of the page relates to the dove mentioned in arthurian/christian tales.I'm not big on religion or arthurian tales,but the story seems to reflect something which i saw on the isle of sheppey in kent.It mentions a dove placing a wafer on the grail-stone every good friday,the image below shows what i think is a dove placing a wafer onto the top of a mans head.I don't suppose i'll ever find out what the holy grail is or even if it really exists at all,but in terms of it being placed on the man,that sort of makes sense if you go along the lines of the grail being within us all.I would'nt have bothered posting it if there did'nt seem to be some similarity with the old story.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british...llery_03.shtml
I've outlined the features i think are simulacra to the dove and wafer.The wafer obviously being in it's beak due to lack of fingers.The mans head can be seen outlined in the third image.

Simulcra is accurate. I had to get my head around that word because it was a new one for me. I like the word, it is no ordinary word and has come to have special meaning in today's time. I did a page on the word:

http://s3.zetaboards.com/For_My_Jee/...7543401/1/#new

I now think I have my head around it. More, or less, it's an effigy, a representation of something.

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...w/4b797a96.jpg

The bull's horn is interesting, or does that depict a bull's ear? Whichever is the case it does look like the appendage of a bull. It's amazing what can be spotted. I would have liked outlining to help me identify in some of the others. I had a difficult time trying to figure where I should be looking for the alien head here:

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...d/b02fec11.jpg

I think the squiggly lines in this image are interesting and I wonder what they're meant to represent... snakes or sperm.

In regards to the bull's horn/ear,i was quite sure it was a horn,but if you include the bit at the top,yes it does then look like an ear.The phrase red rag to a bull popped into my head yesterday,obviously thinking about ragley hall[a gargantuan leap of faith into irrelevancies:)].Those little sperm like features are a bit strange,i get the feeling they want to join up with each other,maybe they will one day.Theres lot's more of them in that area,and i can't remember seeing that sort of feature anywhere else in britain.On one level there's probably a simple reason for them,like it's a small wildlife or conservation area,but on another level the same feature means something different.I'm off to have a little swot up on beaudrillard,nice one yass catch you later.

curly, yes, Jean Baudrillard does have some interesting things to say does he not? Of course you can use anything you like, no need to ask. It's all for sharing and enlightment, whatever appeals to a person to share (interest in sharing).

Romney marsh in kent and the surrounding area is a massive mosaic of simulacra as far as i'm concerned,some of it seems to have religious undertones and homer simpson can even be found there believe it or not,but more on homer both young and old later.

The romney marsh area on the kent coast.I always get high cpu usage whenever i visit romney for some reason.:)
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...y/c4ac51e3.jpg
Extensive records of the centuries long reclamation of land from the sea in the romney area,enable us to take a good look at just how that simulacra came into being over the years.In early days summer dykes were built to enable the limited range of crops that could be grown in a wetland environment to be reasonably safe from unexpected summer inundations.To realise the full financial possibilities though,full scale reclamation had to take place.A sea wall keeping tides at bay leads to a wholly freshwater intertidal environment,with a managed water table.This reclamation of the saltmarsh was known to have been underway by the 9th century,by the 11th century there were three hundreds recorded on the marsh.A hundred is a name given to the amount of land that would comfortably sustain a hundred households,the leader of which would be called a hundred man or hundred elder.
It was a high risk enterpise financially for the communites or landowners who did this,with the constant threat of flooding and maintenence making you wonder why they bothered.If succesful though,it was a high return,with marshland arable and pasture fetching significantly more than a dryland equivalent.Fishing,wildfowling,grazing and salt production all contributed to profits taken from the land.Canterbury cathederal for example spent £123 18s 6d on drainage and flood defence of it's manor at appledore in 1293/94,this was against an income of only £74.

This is the first thing that caught my eye,the village of st. mary in the marsh and what looks like a females face {green fields** looking at it.An old hags face set a bit further back and another female like face on the other side,which are marked in the images below.

A series of medieval charters document the various landscape features and boundaries,old sea walls,rivers,dykes etc.Many of these charters relate to the granting of land to various ecclesiastical institutions,and their subsequent management,post norman conquest.It was probably w.g hoskins [1955] who first recognised the value of interrogating the historic landscape,for it retains within it a wealth of information on how that land came into being.This is perhaps particularly so within a reclaimed wetland,for once a field boundary is created ,it performs a vital drainage function,which makes it less expendable than it's dryland counterpart.The line of sea walls that are no longer needed due to further reclamation were still preserved as they had become field,and often estate boundaries.The layout of fields and roads will also mark the process of reclamation.For example,salt marshes are naturally drained by a series of meandering creeks,and following embanking,if such a marsh is enclosed in a gradual and piecemeal fashion [perhaps by numerous tenants within a community**,these creeks will often be exploited as field boundaries.In this way,the broad loops of meandering creeks come to be fossilised within the post-reclamation pattern of fields.Snave and ivychurch to the north east of the yoke sewer can be used as an example of this.
In contrast,if the process of enclosure and drainage following reclamation was carried out in a single episode {possibly by a single individual**,then these creeks must be ignored,as a geometrically-arranged system of fields is imposed over a very large area,brookland is an example of this.The pattern of the parish boundaries can also be informative.Romney marsh proper,to the n.e of an early sea wall along the line of the yoke sewer was the earlist area to be colonised in the medieval period,and the parishes there tend to be compact with very irregular boundaries {newchurch and snave**.
Some areas of the marsh were parts of estates centred on the fen-edge [the upland-wetland interface**,or even further inland,and detatched parcels of the latter sometimes became detached parts of the parishes.For example,ebony,appledore,kenardington and bilsington.When walland marsh came to be reclaimed,the parishes simple extended across the old sea wall along the yoke sewer [e.g brenzett,ivychurch].In other cases,these newly reclaimed areas came to support their own communities and became parishes in their own right {e.g brookland,fairfield**.
I'll link to the pdf from which i borrowed this information for anyone that's interested,as i'll be here all night otherwise.Some maps on the pdf give a better idea of how the marsh was born,i thought it was quite fascinating as it should provide an understanding to how some of the simulacra came to be.Thanks to stephen rippon for the information.
http://www.redcourt.dsl.pipex.com/mo...HAPTER%206.pdf

The grant of 1300 acres of saltmarsh including the parishes of playden and iden and broomhill,granted to richard guldeford in 1497 by the bishop of robertsbridge is a chance to see what he came up with visually.I don't suppose for a minute that anyone is actually aware of what was created{?**,it just is what it is.It will be interesting to see what turned up in his own personal playden,his i-den though.

Tabula Smaragdina - The Emerald Tablet
"Heaven above,heaven below;
Stars above,stars below;
All that is over,under shall sow,
Happy thou who the riddle readest."

A bit pretentious that,do beg your pardon

So why is there a dove with a wafer/leaf in it's beak on the isle of sheppey,why this part of the world.It's difficult to know where to start looking for clues.Luckily i found one in a book called Behold Jerusalem by graham k griffiths{2003**.In it he gives his take on the landscape and coastline,which to him is a giant zodiacal effigy.The area he equates to saggitarius,whom he also identifies as noah is the south east corner of england.The isle of sheppey isn't on his hand,but it's as near as dammit,on his wrist for sure.Looking at the coast,i do think he has used a bit of artistic licence on the painting,but i can see what he means.It's his vision after all though,not mine.It does fit in nicely with what i see so as the cap fits i think i'll put it on.Obviously i don't need to mention that noah and the dove have a connection.Graham mentions the expected arrival of the vacant dove on noah's hand,i've seen it,it's already landed mate.Notice his positioning of capricorn the big horse with it's broken horn of plenty,it's the same place as mine on the south downs way.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...m/486c9108.jpg
I've marked the outline of the figure of noah in red,his hand in yellow and sheppey in blue.A bit far fetched for some people i know,but not a bad start.After all what's real and what's not these days.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...2ab659f2-1.jpg

http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...m/2ab659f2.jpg
President bush himself had a signed copy of the painting hanging on the white house walls during his presidency.The feature he identifies as libra the dove is the isle of wight,the island bearing an uncanny resemblence to the libran dove in katherine maltwoods glastonbury zodiac.He even ingeniously plots the course of the dove's flight along the straits of DOVEr to noahs hand.
Mary caine{another zodiac chick** wrote that for the welsh druids,god's creative word could be sensed at times,as divine inspiration - via a dialogue with the muse,and to this force of inner illumination they gave the name awen-[pron] A-hoowen which mimics a doves call[maybe].They symbolised the vehicle of this inspiration as three bars of light in an arrowhead around a centre shaft.Mary caine sees this as echoing a dove in it's bird like shape,thus the spirit of god,encapsulated in the form of a dove,would mirror perfectly the imagery of that one which in the bible,hovered above the baptism of jesus and which,in a sense innaugurated jesus' own journey from the wilderness to the cross.

i'll throw in some william blake
"I give you the end of a golden string;
Only wind it into a ball,
It will lead you in at heaven,s gate

cheers bud,yeah that horse is one of the best ones,very easy on the eye.Those woods at the top of the head around the scorpion are quite eerie.One of the famous dambusters bombers crashed right into the scorpion on the way back from the raid,theres a memorial at the top to the crew who all died.The eye[northdown bottom] and the nose[lambsdown bottom] look like man made features to me,carved into the hillside.Theres a quaint little church at the bottom of the head that flies the stars and stripes flag,i think there are quite a few american servicemen buried there from wwII.There was a guy in the church who looked just like jesus when i got there:),we spoke a few pleasantries and he said i should visit the memorial at the top,then he said he was off up the hill and i followed him out about a minute later.I expected to see him and join him walking to the top,as theres no way he could have walked far but he'd dissappeared,i looked everywhich way for him,freaked me out a bit that.:D,

:D that's a favourite prank among the country folks, we know all the shortcuts, up here in Scotland we are also prone to sending tourists to the 'wrong castle' for laughs :eek:

the Horse really does look built, I'm fascinated by it, some of the others are possibly just chance and illusion, but the horse with a scorpion I think may be deliberate, perhaps not ancient (hope the horse is) but they seem to be planed, Homer too, a farmer's sense of humour rather than an illusion or coincidence? I think so.

:)Yeah,it was probably the vicar.I agree that the horse does look built in parts,but i'm buggered if i can find a reason behind the wooded shapes[scorpion],magic is the best i can come up with:).I view them as additions to something that was once pristene maybe,and like you say very old.Something says to me that's an important part of our spiritual heritage there,but it also looks tampered with.If you turn the scorpion upside down it looks like it's being devoured by a wood shaped like a dragon,i'm not sure which side i'm on at the moment.It bothers me that the horse is being stung in the eye.
A lot of the stuff is no more than coincidence as you said,coincidence is a funny thing tho,i deleted over 7,000 images a couple of weeks ago,due to the vagueness of it all.
I've got some more of homer btw,he grows up to be an astronaut you know:),i've not looked back to see if those homer boundaries were around a long while ago,i:e pre simpsons.Stick with me on the simpsons;),theres more to that than meets the eye.

Kettering in Northamptonshire
 
If i remember rightly,this was the first piece of simulacra i came across on google earth.Until recently i'd always called it a pheonix,it does'nt in fact look anything like a representation of a pheonix.I think i just got carried away thinking of the large amount of references to the word pheonix that exist in kettering and nearby corby.Pheonix trading estate,pheonix parkway,pheonix f.c,pheonix pub,two dozen businesses+ with the name pheonix,pheonix rotary clubs,atc,etc.
I'm not sure what to call it now,it looks a bit like a dragon,or a stalking big cat.I've come across something called a wyvern,which looks a bit like it,so that will have to do for the moment.Obviously it's just trees at the end of the day,but he who dares rodney he who dares.

The wyvern:o,the area has changed a lot recently,this is before building started.

Where that little circle of red dots is,on the end of the foot,you can now find a stone semi-circle,marking the entrance to kettering business park.

Some of these stones are about 9 feet tall

The way this wall splits at the end was reminiscent to what my dowsing rods did when i walked towards the leg,to find the energy of the earth flowing through the area.
http://i904.photobucket.com/albums/a...g/0bc8f643.jpg
The red dots indicate the width of the energy line there,which flows up and down the leg.I picked it up on the left line and walked through the leg,roughly about 140 paces till i picked up where it finished on the right.That's all i did,along where the dots are.

This is what it looks like now.

A close up of the head shows a large building complex just underneath it,that's the national training centre/headquaters for the boy scouts.

The view from behind the leg,where the line of dots is from the earlier image.

This is looking down the leg towards the foot,i'm not kidding when i say those carlsberg cans stretched from one end of the leg to the other,honestly.God knows what they were upto:D,maybe they were subconciously accessing the spirit of the place in an altered state of mind,and she was making them mark her image,the only way they would understand:).

wiki - Probably mostly rubbish bar the last few hundred years

This probably explains it,charles dickens was covering the local elections once.

Politics in Kettering has not always been a sedate affair: in 1835 a horrified Charles Dickens, then a young reporter for the Morning Chronicle, watched aghast as a Tory supporter on horseback, intent (along with others) on taking control of bye-election proceedings, produced a loaded pistol and had to be restrained by his friends from committing murder. The ensuing riot between Tory and Whig supporters led Dickens in his article to form various opinions of Kettering and its voters, none of them complimentary.

Completely unconnected but interesting nonetheless,is iman jacob wilkins mentioning kettering as the place of the ceiteringians,in his book "where troy once stood" [cambridgeshire to be precise?].They provided their own regiments for hector and the boys.Needless to say they lost,should have come to wellingborough:rolleyes:.

there's one in wiltshire too. :D seriously though i have driven past this many times and it is obviously planted this way. perhaps googling " cock and balls "forest isn't the best way tp find the name. a bit of google earth research may be in order:)

curly 29-01-2012 07:48 PM

I've spent quite a bit of time looking at the forests in scotland,i'll post some of it up soon.They do make some remarkable shapes,i've been meaning to delve into the heritage/esoterica side of trees.The qualities of the different species,some like ash are said to be hostile to humans.I've noticed certain funny shaped forests/woods have a single line of a particular species ringing the edge.Like the one round the wyvern head in kettering.As these woods/forests are isolated, whatever spirit/energy is there is stuck there maybe,unable to flow as it once was across the landscape.Maybe this can then be tapped into with a bit of geomancy to direct it to,say a country estate or business park.Someone in the forestry commision knows i bet:).O.S [explorer] maps are often a good place to start looking for interesting tit bits.Where exactly was that place on the m74?.

Anubis/hermanubis
 
I found something on the isle of wight that very much made me think of the egyptian god anubis.I think this one might be quite abstract and difficult to spot,so i've marked it's outline.
This egyptian god has close parallels with hermes,whose ubiquity is reflected in different gods from cultures all over the world.This close association would see the god later renamed hermanubis.Like hermes,anubis also has the caduceus as his attribute.
Anubis symbolizes his status as a CONDUCTOR of SOULS by his HEAD,which is that of a jackal,a creature which is also a psychopomp.Anubis presided over the process of embalming,considered essential if the soul were to have any form of life after death.Funerary prayers and offerings were made almost exclusively to anubis.
Anubis had been abandoned by his mother,nephthys,and was adopted by isis.Isis,osiris and anubis shared the same father ra,the sun god.When osiris died,it was anubis who invented the funeral rites and the all important process of mummification.Known as the "Lord of the Mummy Wrappings," Anubis also had the ability to take the hand of the deceased and guide them towards the judges who then weighed his soul.
That was from the element encycloedia of secret signs and symbols by adele nozedar.

http://www.pantheon.org/articles/a/anubis.html

Here he is,no markings first,and you can only see his head neck.Notice i highlighted the words conductor of souls with his head from the passage above.His head can be broken down into various examples of simulacra.

The ear area is a little confusing,it looks like he has two.
