An air crash on the escarpment of Kaapsehoop, Mpumalanga brought about the discovery of the megalithic stone calendar of Adams Calendar. Johan Heine, the pilot on search had come across the arrangement of stone circles alongside the crash site.
The stones deeply rooted into the earth of the area are not naturally occurring and are aligned to the cardinal points (North, South, East, West), to the equinoxes as well as the solstices. Controversially suggested to be the oldest man made structure in the world, the calendar is sometimes referred to as African Stonehenge, predating both Stonehenge and the pyramids of Giza by thousands of years and believed to be over 200 000 years old.
Various astronomical alignments have been identified at the site and it is possibly the only example of a completely functional, mostly intact megalithic stone calendar in the world. Scattered throughout the mountains of South Africa are thousands of stone circle ruins.
Energy and Vibration
The dolomite stones which make up the site of Adams Calendar are one of the hardest stones on the planet. Credo Mutwa, a local Zulu Shaman, who was initiated within the calendar, suggests that the main purpose of the calendar was to receive energy from other ancient sites around the world. The energy received would be transferred into the two main calendar stones which would act as “vibration plates”. If one would stand between these two “vibration plates”, it has been suggested that one would be in the vortex of energy, spinning from the ground upwards.
African elders refer to the site as “Inzalo y’Langa” which means “The Birthplace of the Sun”. Some suggest that the site’s stones are the remains of the Bantu people and their kraals (cattle enclosure). However, the site offers no doors or entrances and are unlike any other ancient kraals.
The more evident theory suggests that the stones act as trackers to the movement of the sun casting shadows on the rocks, hence the name Adams Calendar. The months of the year are then measured by the change in the casted shadow.
Not only are the stones strategically placed, but new discoveries show the link between the calendar and sound. Michael Tellinger and others have used modern technology to measure and identify sound frequencies conducting electricity occurring from within the circle. These frequencies are patterns of sacred geometrical flowers surfacing to the ground.
There are many theories relating to the truth of Adams Calendar. Who built it, how they built it and why they built it are still being questioned today. In time, with more exploration, the truth will be unveiled.
