Thomas believes that along with many other circular alignments across the globe, Stonehenge shares a powerful message for us all. Over to Thomas:-At the present time, there are many theories, speculations, and thoughts about the true meaning of Stonehenge.
To my knowledge no one has ever given an explanation for the number of circles, the numbers of stones in each circle, what the complex was positioned for or why it was built. Many say that it is lined up with the equinox, the solstice, or the moon cycles, but they never really shown a diagram to prove their point. So, I do not believe I am out of line by saying that at the present time no one really knows when it was built, what it represents, or the reason for its construction.
Stone Medicine Wheels
When I ask my Elder Native American friends “What are these stone medicine wheels I hear about all the time?” Their response is usually the same, “They represent our astronomical cycle of life or our pathway of life, the Earthʼs delicate balance in space.” When I ask “Why arenʼt we building any new ones?” They say “The time is not right yet, everyone will build them towards the end times.”
When I look at stone circles around the globe including Stonehenge, I would have to agree. Stones, arranged in circles, have been found around the world in Turkey, England, Israel, Africa, Egypt, Mexico and the Americaʼs. They have been built at different periods of time in Earthʼs history by everyone, in many different locations, using small stones, huge stones, pyramids, and observatories. What could the ancient ones have been trying to tell us about Earthʼs delicate balance and why?
In the Americaʼs, stone circles have been given the name “Medicine Wheels” and there are many different reasons given for their constructions. Some say they are places for healing, medicine, sacred ceremonies, spiritual guidance, magic, and even some sort of secret technology. But all I really see, are piles of stones arranged in the same circular pattern. Thousands of people have visited these sites and nothing has ever happened to them, no magic, no medicine, or secret technology, nothing has ever embraced them to my knowledge.
It is the Hopi belief, based on their Creation story, that east has not always been located in the same position as it is today. They believe that our planet has shifted on its axis at predetermined times account the twin polar ice caps departed their post or melted and the loss of this weight caused the planet to teeter off balance, spin around crazily, and then roll over twice.This is the third time that this shift has occurred and the North and South poles were located in different locations in each of the three previous events or times.Bighorn National Forest

Charles Hapgood wrote a book called Path of the Pole in 1958, with a foreword by Albert Einstein, he speculated that the earthʼs crust can rotated or slip above the inner core, like the skin of an orange, and he calls this event earth crust displacement. On his climate change chart for the last 100,000 years, he carbon dated thousands of core samples to conclude that this slippage has happened at least three times in that time period or exactly the same count as the Hopi elders have been saying for many hundreds of years.
The Hopi version is based on a verbal story passed down from generation to generation and Hapgoodʼs version is based on the data he collected around the planet in his scientific study.
The Hopi Truth Wheel
In order to prove the Hopi and Hapgood, and find out the truth about all the stone circles, I have come up with a simple tool that I call the Hopi Truth Wheel or the Hopi Wheel of Truth.
Hopi Truth Wheel
Pic: Thomas O. Mills, Figure 2The equinox, the winter solstice and the summer solstice are very important events to the Hopi. Many of their most important ceremonies are based on these occurrences. The equinox, which occurs twice a year, once on March 20th and then again on September 21st or 22nd, when the earthʼs axis is straight up, not pointing towards the sun or away from the sun and therefore the day is split equally into two equal halves, or half daylight and half darkness; the perfect balance.
The summer and winter solstice take place 28 degrees north or south from this point of the equinox, so the halfway mark would be 14 degrees on each side or the cross-quarter mark. All five of these measurements are very important and used by the Hopi throughout the year.
I have divided the circle into 12 equal pieces by using the number 30 instead of the number 28 to work with whole numbers in our system of mathematics. I believe one would get the same results with what ever system of mathematics you use account of the way the stone circles are designed. If it takes the earth 72 years to move just one degree through the procession of the equinox, and in our system there are 360 degrees in a circle, then it would take 360 x 72 or 25,920 years to travel the whole circle, using our system.
A person using this tool, at the time of the equinox, facing east at sunrise would have west directly behind him, north would be to his left and south to his right, and by using this tool he would have at least 14 points of reference (similar to a gyroscope) to measure the earthʼs delicate balance or its orientation in space.
I have learned that having two or three points of reference is very important. For example, when building a fence over a long distance, if you put the first and last post in place, then a person standing in the middle, can move a marker back and forth between the two, and then someone standing behind the first post, can line them up perfectly straight between the three points and make a very straight fence. Two points will not work.
Stonehenge’s Orignal Alignment
Two archaeologists, Thomas Darvill and Geoffrey Wainwright, have been working at Stonehenge for many years. They believe this is what the complex looked like when all the stones were in their original place, Figure 3. This is also Stonehenge present orientation to the four directions, north, south, east, and west.
At the present time the complex does not line up with the equinox, the solstice or any planets, stars, or events. Therefore, at the present time, no one has any idea what the complex was really used for or when it was built.

You would see that the sun on the morning of the equinox would enter the complex between the exact center of two large stones, split one of the smaller center stones into two equal pieces and then pass through two of the large stones in the center and depart the complex between two more large stones in the back of the circle at true west.
The sun on the morning of the summer and winter solstice would split the next two stones on each side of this center stone and land on two of the large stones in the second ring of stones where both of these events could be marked and measured for reference when the equinox occurred.
There would be four more points of reference between the remaining eight large stones that could line up with four different stars at that moment. The stars would change as time went by account of the procession of the equinox, but the location of the stars would mark the exact time that the complex was used. Astronomers can move the procession forward or backward and calculate the exact time and date. This might be one more reason for the complex and the reason the builders used such large stones, that could not be moved.
Balancing the Planet
The complete complex would be a very effective way of showing our balanced planet at the time of the equinox, or it would have been an excellent tool to do the job of balancing the planet if it was out of balance or orientation in its orbit for some reason.
With east in this direction everything starts to make sense. The eight large stones in the middle of the circle would act as a type of gun site allowing the light of four stars to meet in the middle of the circle. The north-south lines that were not needed would not go through the circle nor would the four unneeded lines that complete the twelve divisions of the circle.
If a person was standing at the center of the circle the morning of the equinox they would see two points of reference to the north and two points of reference to the south. Then the sun would rise in the direction of true east between the two large stones in the outer circle and split the small center stone in the ring of 60 stones and then pass through the exact center of the two large stones and out the opposite side of the complex. This would give the observer six points of reference to the earth delicate balance and I do not believe you could get the same result by shifting the complex in any other direction. This might be the reason the complex was built. There is no other explanation that I can find. The Creator of the complex needed the sun and the stars to find the earths perfect balance in space.
The North Pole 17,000 Years Ago

Pic: Thomas O. Mills, Figure 6The complex also tells me that the Creator of the complex used a stele as a reference point to block the suns rays at the time of the equinox. That he needed at least six points of reference and that he was very worried about the Earths delicate balance at different times in our past.If you follow the direction of the north line northward, it takes you to a location at 60 degrees north, 73 degrees west which is the exact location that Charles Hapgood suggest in his book, The Path Of The Poles, as a location of the north pole at around 17,000 Before Present.
The only location I have ever been in my life where the equinox, the solstice and the stars are measured for a worldly event, and objects are arranged in a broken circle (Kachina Dancers) is a Hopi Plaza or a Hopi Kiva, their underground ceremonial chamber. The Hopi truth wheel works at Stonehenge in my mind.
In 2003, 150 miles inland from the port of Maputo, Southeast Africa, Johan Heine was searching for a plane that had crashed. He passed over thousand of stone circles that he thought were cattle pens that the natives had piled together for corrals and finally landed at a place he named, “Adams Calendar” a stone circle on top of a high ridge.When I place the Hopi Wheel of Truth on the site:

and if you follow the north line with google earth:

Pic: Thomas O. Mills, Figure 9In 1964, in Southeastern Turkey, the University of Istanbul discovered a stone circle the called Gobekli Tepe. When I place the Hopi Wheel of Truth on the site:-This rock was placed to pinpoint the equinox. A similar structure was built at Monte Alban in Southern Mexico called building “J” to pinpoint the solstice.
Monte Alban, Southern Mexico
There was not enough room on top of the pyramid for an observatory so the location of the Solstice was pinpointed on the ground with this building. Building “J”.I believe that many of the Mayan Temples were built to complete the same task as Stonehenge, Adams Calendar, Gobekli Tepe, and the American Medicine Wheels. When I place the Hopi Wheel of Truth on the Mayan Complex of Monte Alban in Southern Mexico:

Our present pole would correspond to the ancient site of Tiahuanaco located in Western Bolivia.
And the ancient temples at Baalbek in Lebanon would correspond to Hapgoodʼs pole location of 50,000 years ago.
Pic: Thomas O. Mills, Figure 15 The whole pyramid complex in Egypt could be the largest of our stone circles and indeed show our pathway of life and the astronomical cycle for our planet, just as the elders said.

Many stone circles all around the globe, were positioned in-line with the equinox and the two solstice but the earth was rotating in a different position during those times. Iʼve mentioned only a few and hope others will use the Hopi Wheel of Truth in their search for the truth, in the future.
Will we, as a civilization build stone circles in the end times, to try and find the earthʼs delicate balance after our polar ice caps melt? Only time will tell.
