PROJECT LEY LINES
The Colorado Coalition of Paranormal Investigators
Ley lines /leɪ laɪnz/
1. Energy leys are wide beams of energy cris crossing our landscape. These leys are fractures or changes in the Earth’s crust and are affected by the pull of gravity from the Sun and Moon. The resulting faults and released water may change the nature and the intensity of the Earth energies. You will also find many ancient sacred sites along these leys, thus enhancing the intensity of the energy flow.
2. True leys lines are ancient straight trader’s tracks first identified by Alfred Watkins in the 1920s. These leys have at least five aligned pre-reformation sacred sites (churches etc.) on them and within short distances of each other.
Ancient peoples from Europe and South America believed that great energy could be found within the earth. They strategically placed important locations, such as burial grounds, churches, and other sites to run perpendicularly with each other along these invisible energy lines.
Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate describe the origin of ley lines in their "Book of English Magic": "Alfred Watkins, a landscape photographer in Herefordshire, noticed that ancient sites seemed to be aligned with others nearby. His idea was that our ancestors built and used prominent features in the landscape as navigation points. These features included prehistoric standing stones and stone circles, barrows and mounds, hill forts and earthworks, an- cient moats, old pre-Reformation churches, old crossroads and fords, prominent hilltops and fragments of old, straight tracks. Watkins went on to suggest that that the lines connecting these ancient sites represented old trackways or routes that were followed in prehistoric times for the purposes of trade or religious rites, and in 1921 he coined the term 'ley lines' to describe these alignments." Watkins himself did not believe that there was any magical or mystical significance to ley lines. (Radford).
It should be noted that these same ancient peoples also believed in the energy and affects of the moon and sun as it pertains to human and animal behavior. These have since been proven to be accurate, along with other scientific discoveries thanks to the New Age movement.
Benjamin Radford, of Live Science Magazine says, “Because of [sic] New Age interest, ley lines rose from mundane origins to an entire field of study…Ley lines have also been incorporated into a variety of otherwise unrelated paranormal subjects, including dowsing, UFOs, Atlantis, crop circles, and numerology.”
Clare Lewis from Supernatural Magazine says,” Everything in existence has energy, some physical energies (electrical field), some are living energies (auras), some are earth based (ley lines) and some are spiritual (ghosts). With the increase in reports of hauntings and associated phenomena in locations where let lines are thought to exist, it begs the question ‘is there a connection between these two forms of energy and if so, why?’” She goes on to further describe energy ley lines and how it is that they can exist: Energy ley lines are wide beams of energy [cris] crossing our landscape. These leys are fractures or changes in the Earth’s crust and are affected by the pull of gravity from the Sun and Moon. The resulting faults and released water may change the nature and the intensity of the Earth ener- gies…most of the Earth’s leys are positive but when two of these leys cross or intersect a vortex of negative energy is then created. It is like a powerful magnet attracting all kinds of lower vibrational spirit, energy or entity and even sometimes people. These entities can then draw off the energy, feed on it and use it to manifest… [people] will be prone or influenced to lower vibrational thoughts, paranoia, anger, ego, and fear, etc………it can be a source of food to an entity to recharge their batteries (Lewis).
It has been suggested that energy ley lines run through Colorado, with one in particular running through the town of New Castle. The Colorado Coalition of Paranormal Investigators has five documented cases of confirmed paranormal activity in the ghostology field since its inception in 2004 in that town - all of which are located south of the Colorado River.
Alex Whitaker of Ancient-Wisdom.com says, “We know that the Earth is encompassed within a magnetic field. The strength and direction of the magnetic currents vary according to the position of the sun, moon and closer planets. The magnetic field is also affected.” Rene Noobergen reminds us in his book, Secrets of the Lost Races: New Discoveries of Advanced Technology in Ancient Civilizations that, “there is scientific research that shows that water is extremely sensitive to electromagnetic fields, and that as the fields are changed or influenced, so the chemistry of the water may be altered too…We are able to show today that the strength and direction of the Earth’s magnetic currents vary according to the position of the Sun, Moon and other planets”(Whitaker).
Based on Whitaker and Noobergen’s statements, we can hypothesize that the combination of the Colorado River, the geothermal pockets of underground hot springs, and the mining in the area south of the Colorado River in New Castle, Colorado may have inadvertently created a ley line that is enabling spirits to manifest. We can further hypothesize that extraterrestrials may be able to detect and/or utilize these energy currents. Further, because these energy currents are thought to affect human behavior, it’s possible that they may also affect the behavior of cryptids in the area, resulting in higher instances of human interaction with such beings in that area.
To determine, using a series of controls and variables, if there is a correlation between energy ley lines and reports of paranormal activity at those locations. By doing so, paranormal researchers world-wide can plot geographic locations for increased or additional research, thereby contributing toward the obtaining of concrete proof of supernatural existence. Additional data pertaining to reports of geographic psychic trauma may be utilized depending on relevance.
By determining the precise locations of ley lines, to include their latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates, we can then attempt to derive potential correlations between ghostly, extraterrestrial, and cryptozoological activity and the ley lines themselves.
A) The Colorado Coalition of Paranormal Investigators is able to determine a distinct correlation between ley line locations and ghostly, extraterrestrial, or cryptozoological phenomena, or a combination of the three.
B) The Colorado Coalition of Paranormal Investigators is unable to, after completion of the project within the proposed research parameters, conclusively derive a direct correlation between ley line locations, and increased reports of ghostly, cryptozoological, or extraterrestrial activity.
C) The data collected by the Colorado Coalition of Paranormal Investigators is inconclusive and yields no or very little data thereby rendering the project coordinators unable to substantiate a direct correlation between ley lines, and ghostly, extraterrestrial, or cryptozoological activity.
1. Plat in the shared database: GPS coordinates for each ghostology, UFOlogy, and cryptozoology investigation.
2. Enter into the shared database: Data pertaining to lunar phase, solar X-rays, and geomagnetic activity for each ghostology, UFOlogy, and cryptozoology investigation. By contributing this data, we are further exploring the popular theories surrounding the effects these elements have on human and inhuman behavior.
3. Determine, based on the plotted GPS coordinates, if reports of paranormal activity are elevated along known ley lines and possibly locate undiscovered ley lines.
A) The same device or website will be used to obtain GPS coordinates at every investigation location. This will ensure consistent measurements.
B) The same device or website will be used to obtain the data regarding the lunar phase, solar x-rays, and geomagnetic activity.
C) All efforts will be made to ensure follow-up investigations will be conducted by the same individuals, using the same equipment. This will help to ensure, as closely as possible, the same conditions in order to obtain duplicate results.
A) The investigators may vary from case to case.
B) The techniques may vary from case to case, resulting in variations in evidence obtained.
C) The investigation equipment may vary from case to case, resulting in variations in evidence obtained.
D) The investigations may yield no or inconclusive evidence of paranormal activity at a location.
E) The lunar phase, solar x-rays, and geomagnetic activity, as well as temperature, barometric pressure, and other weather conditions will vary from case to case.
