The Monument That Explains How To Rebuild Society After An Apocalypse

Samuel Reason | October 10th, 2018

What is generally referred to as the American Stonehenge is a monument found in Georgia, United States? It is a mysterious monument that has eight languages inscribed on it, all explaining how one would rebuild society if ever there was an apocalypse that destroyed the world as we know it.

The five granite slabs form a star and each one weighs over 20 tons, and on top, there is a capstone. Even stranger, no one really knows who built it, it just appeared one day. No one knows why it was placed in Georgia, but it is thought the stones should be used to guide the surviving humanity if there ever is an apocalypse. Such as natural disasters that demolish whole countries or even a nuclear holocaust between world powers.

On the blocks, you can find messages in eight languages, two which are actually extinct: ancient Greek and Egyptian hieroglyphs. The ten guidelines found on the stones have been studied for years but most can not make head or tail of it, the messages do not really seem to be that clear at all. Some believe they are guidelines for a utopia, others feel it is just a joke or scarier yet some believe them to be satanic orders.

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature

While some of these commands seem noble, such as living with nature and taking care of the Earth, some of the messages around reproduction & population are of course more sinister. If we were to follow this message as it stands today, we would end up having to kill over 90% of the planet’s population. How they came up with this number, we do not know, but their general thoughts seem to be that the world is overpopulated in its current state. It is indeed true that we have already passed the threshold for where the planet’s resources no longer replenish fast enough.
