Does Stonehenge’s layout incorporate ancient symbols for classical elements?

                  Fire, earth, air and water?

EVIDENCE FOR THIS COMES FROM THE RELATIVE POSITIONS OF THE TRILITHON, SARSEN AND BLUESTONE CIRLCES.

THE TRILITHON SIDE ARCS WERE SET USING SIMPLE GEOMETRY.

If two perfect (equilateral) triangles, are positioned inside the blue-stone and sarsen circles, the point of intersect is exactly  where circles that locate the Trilithon arcs are centred.

 

Geometric symbolism encapsulated at Stonehenge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(On the south-east the stone fit the plan perfectly. On the north-east side the fit is less good. But bear in mind,  plans are made before building takes place and errors arise in construction. Stonehenge is no different to any other building project!)

The larger triangle, formed within the sarsen circle, points to the sunrise on the longest day of the year (the summer solstice). FIRE?

The triangle within the blue-stone circle opposes that likely to be FIRE. That blue-tone rock was selected and used suggests this symbolises WATER.

Extending the triangle within the blue-stone circle out to meet the sarsen circle generates the symbol for EARTH. The WATER symbol rests in  that of EARTH, just as land exists under under rivers, lakes and seas.

The AIR triangle rises vertically, to face a prevailing south-westerly wind, as is found at Salisbury Plain.

FOUR TRIANGLES LINK THREE CIRCLES.

The four symbols for fire, earth, air and water connect with  Three Great Circles.  Two, the sarsen and blue-stone circles, have survived. A Third Great Circle once existed, embodied within the building’s ridge-line.

Though underpinning Stonehenge’s design, four elemental symbols (FIRE, EARTH, AIR AND WATER)  never existed in physical form.

They located and linked THREE GREAT CIRCLES, the major structural elements of Stonehenge when built. Stonehenge, the temple, transmogrified classical elements into physical form. Thus….STONEHENGE WAS A TEMPLE.
