The message of the Georgia Guide stones

Russian,   Hebrew,  Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish,  Swahili


Erected circa Winter 1979 of "Pyramid Blue Granite" in Elberton Georgia

As They Stand They Point Everywhere; Encompassing the Cardinal Directions in Orientation to the Heavens:  Their Message is for Everyone.

The four large upright blocks pointing outward are oriented to the limits of the migration of the moon during the course of the year.

An eye-level, oblique hole is drilled from the South to the North side of the center,
Gnomen stone, so that the North Star is always visible, symbolizing constancy and orientation with the heavens.the forces of nature.
including your future

A slot is cut in the middle of the
Gnomen stone to form a window which aligns with the positions of the rising sun at the Summer and Winter Solstices and at the Equinox, so that the noon sun shines to indicate noon on a curved line.

The cap stone includes a calendar of sorts, where sunlight beams through a 7/8 inch hole at noon, and shines on the South face of the center stone. As the sun makes its travel cycle, the spot beamed through the hole can tell the day of the year at noon each day. Allowances are made because of variations between standard time and sun time to set the beam of sunlight at an equation of time.

The site was chosen because it commands a view to the East and to the West and is within the range of the Summer and Winter sunrises and sunsets. The stones are oriented in those directions.

The Guides Explained

A massive granite monument espousing the conservation of mankind and future generations. Sources for the sizable financing of the project choose to remain anonymous. The wording of the message proclaimed on the monument is in 12 languages, including the archaic languages of Sanskrit, Babylonian Cuneiform, Egyptian Hieroglyphics and Classical Greek, as well as English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, and Swahili.

The guides, followed by explanatory precepts, are as follows, the words are exactly as the Sponsors provided them:

the message of the Georgia Guide stones

Russian Hebrew, Arabic  Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, Swahili

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.   Means the entire human race at its climax level for permanent balance with nature.


2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
Without going into details as yet undiscovered, this means humanity should apply reason and knowledge to guiding its own reproduction. "Fitness" could be translated as "health." "Diversity" could be translated as "variety".


3. Unite humanity with a living new language
A "living" language grows and changes with advancing knowledge. A "new" language will be developed "de novo" - and need not necessarily be adopted from any languages now in existence.


4. Rule  passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
 "Faith" here may be used in a religious sense. Too often people are ruled by blind faith even when it may be contrary to reason. Reason must be tempered with compassion here - but must prevail.


5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Courts must consider justice as well as law.


6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Individual nations must be free to develop their own destinies at home as their own people wish - but cannot abuse their neighbors.


7.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Self explanatory.


8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
Individuals have a natural concern for their personal welfare, but man is a social animal and must also be concerned for the group. Failure of society means failure for its individual citizens.


9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the  infinite.
The infinite here means the supreme being - whose will is manifest in the working of the cosmos - if we will seek for it.


10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.
In our time, the growth of humanity is destroying the natural conditions of the earth which have fostered all existing life. We must restore reasoned balance.
