Do ley lines exist? And if so, is there a connection between Sasquatch sightings and the intersecting points of magnetic lines that are claimed by some to criss cross over the surface of our planet? First let's take a look at where the term ley lines came from and what it really meant to the man who coined it.
In 1921 Alfred Wilkins an English businessman and self taught amateur Archeologist, assumed some relationship between certain natural features in the landscape (hills, mountains, ridges, ponds), manmade structures (wells, ancient churches, moats) and intersecting roadways.
He thought he noticed what he called ancient trackways, straight lines criss-crossing the landscape which seemed to connect these ancient features and manmade constructions. Watkins coined the term "ley lines" because of the farms and places these assumed lines passed through. Places like Ley Farms, Weobley, Wyaston Leys, Tumpey Ley and Red Ley.
Watkins thought these lines were evidence of straight line navigational aids used by ancient people for trade or other purposes, and though his theory may be flawed and not supported by mainstream Archeologists, it was an earthly idea, not a fantastic metaphysical claim. That association came later. In his book, Early British Trackways: Moats, Mounds, Camps, and Sites (Classic Reprint), published shortly after he developed his theory, Watkins made no claim of the paranormal, magnetic effects or concentrated energy with regard to ley lines. The supernatural, metaphysical aspect of ley lines was made up, or at least assumed, years later in 1969 with the publication of The View Over Atlantis (revised in 1983 as The New View over Atlantis) by John Michell.
Mitchell was an author with an interest in Forteana, cosmology and numerology. A fringe thinker, he had some interesting ideas about UFOs and ley lines and is no doubt one of the "founding fathers" of the "earth mysteries" counterculture movement. His writings spurred on the idea that UFOs were directly linked to some reawakening of humankind, a kind of new beginning. What we should understand is that the nature of our planet's magnetic activity is well understood by science. The geomagnetic field of our planet has been measured and visualized by scientists. It protects us from charged particles that emanate from the sun; the solar wind. Very real, and amazing in itself.
Is it possible ley lines provide a sort of magnetic energy that would help navigation or some metaphysical purpose? There are so many geographical features and manmade objects, both ancient and new, that connecting the dots it begs the question.
Is it possible Ley Lines are providing an energy grid for Sasquatch to travel and manifest itself?
