This is a Fairy tale, in the truest sense, a Faerie story. Thus: Once upon a time There is a valley in central Tibet, where folklore would have it, a giant burst out of a mountain chasing a woman. The story goes, she had stolen his magic snake, or serpent creature. The giant was enormous, and his footsteps at a running pace were a mile or more apart. He was so angry at being dupped by this woman that he crushed her into the ground under his giant foot when he eventually caught up with her. But in his haste, he also crushed the magic reptile, in doing so, he disappeared, or, was reduced to dust, never to be seen again. In this same valley, it is said, a horde of giants were caught invading from the east, (China?) A ray (sun light?) was focused upon them, and they were instantly turned to stone. Their remains are still there, as weathered rock at the eastern end of the valley. As crazy as this story sounds, if you fly over this valley at the right hight, you can see a large gash in a mountainside, followed by two giant indentations in the landscape, and in one of them, is a broken rock that looks a lot like a woman, or at least a human form, holding in its hand, or close to the body, a shape that could be a snake or reptile. At the eastern end of this valley indeed there are several crumbling rocks that could have been something else millennia ago. It is rumoured that close to this area you will find an entrance to the underworld. The cavern world of the ancients. I’ve seen these marks on the ground with my own eyes, including the lady of stone. I once found the giants foot marks on google maps of Tibet, but that was years ago, the lighting must have been perfect when the satellite photo was taken, because I searched for it again more recently, when I started to get serious about relaying this story for you. I can’t find it, even though I was sure I would remember the general area. Google of course up-date and replace their satellite images almost every year, and the lighting can change, or there is snow on the ground. Maybe one day soon I’ll find it again and present the photo to illustrate this book. But that is not the most interesting thing about this area of Tibet. Most will know, or have seen, at least one of the Matrix series of movies. Just as in those movies, this world is most definitely not what it seems. On google satellite maps once again, take a close look the mountain ranges in central Tibet. Look closely, run your eyes slowly over them and you will see an inscription or two built into the design of the rangers themselves. This in an ancient language no longer used by humanity, but certainly used […]
