Stoneprints in historic Western sites

Cape Town’s Dutch forts made an innate imprint

Cape of Good hope early Dutch settlement, later named Cape Town (after Stoneprint labels and axial grid by Edmond Furter).

A Dutch harbour, water source, and vegetable garden on the sea route to India, soon grew into Cape of Good Hope village below Table Mountain. The sequence of archetypes in this map of early Dutch Cape Town is:

1 Taurus as fort Keep The Cow (19% bovid)
2 Taurus as Mostert’s Mill (48% twisting)
3c Cista as the plot of Hendrik Boom
3 Aries as fort Corn Heap, or silo
4 Pisces as fort Ruyterwag, Mounted Guard (sometimes a horse); at Dutch Gardens (26% rectangular, sometimes a field, as in Babylonian and Persian art), on the almond shrub hedge at the outer river border
4p Galactic South Pole on upper Dutch Gardens and canal (50% limb joint)
5 Aquarius21 as Rondebosch, Round Bush village
6c Cista Tail as Remajenne’s Green Field
6 Capricornus as Groote Schuur (Great Warehouse), nearer the centre (48% ingress /egress); later a hospital

7 Sagittarius as fort Keep the Bull (often with a rope)
7g Galactic Centre on five mountain stream headwaters (sometimes water)
8 Scorpius as Table Mountain (often large), a bastion (31% strength feat)
9 Scorpius as Table Valley, between mountain arms
10c Cista Lid as the Company Gardens; and Cape of Good Hope village; and Free Citizen’s village
10 Libra as fort Good Hope, pentagonal
11 Virgo as the Company Warehouse (87% womb)
11p Galactic Pole on the road fork (68% limb joint)
13 Leo as fort Dune Heap (often a platform)
14 Cancer as the Salt River mouth (sometimes a mixture of two waters; see Tarot trump 14, Temperance with two jugs)
15 Gemini as fort Lookout
15g Gate at the Salt River peninsula.

The celestial south pole is on the bush road bend (37% limb joint), on the long axis of the site from the invisible axial centre, placing summer in Gemini (equivalent of southern hemisphere Sagittarius but the same polar orientation applies in both hemispheres on earth), thus spring and the cultural inspiration is expressed in the temporal context of Age Pisces.

The general theme here could be type 4 Pisces, typical of horses, gardens, and rectangular fields (here as the Dutch Gardens, motivation for the settlement); or type 7 Sagittarius, typical of bags, stores, ropes, manifestation and juveniles. Cape Town now has several stoneprint layers, one consisting of Islamic (Muslim) spiritual master’s graves, named kramats.
The stoneprint analysis score on this early map is 14/25 attributes, 12/16 axial points, 2/5 polar markers, 2/4 thematic features; total 30/50, minus 1 feature off the grid; total 29/50, or 58%, about average as usual in sparse sites…………… [order the book Stoneprint at $30 plus postage from Four Equators Media, via edmondfurter at gmail dot com using Paypal.

By Edmond Furter

Edmond Furter wrote the book Mindprint, the subconscious art code (2014,, to demonstrate five layers of recurrent features in 200 artworks of all cultures and Ages, revealing the archetypal core content of culture. His second book, Stoneprint, the human code in art, buildings and cities (2016, Four Equators Media), expands demonstrations of the subconscious expression of archetypal structure to houses, temples, monuments, pyramid fields, geoglyphs, villages, cities and regions. The same structure also appears in mythology, such as Babylonian building rituals; and in reflexology points in our hands and irises, thus in nature. Stoneprint also demonstrates that the periodic table is a kind of natural 'culture', and that culture is a natural 'species' of behaviour. The structure in our works is as rigorous as grammar or DNA.
The books Mindprint, and Stoneprint, and editions of the structuralist anthropology periodical, Stoneprint Journal (some of which are available on, draw on extensive research in iconography, archaeology, history, esoterica, astronomy, art history and structuralist anthropology, spanning 26 years.
The core content of culture includes about 100 recurrent features of the sixteen main types, their sequence, five polar markers, and a time-frame orientation, that nature, individuals and societies subconsciously and compulsively express in all media. The mindprint or stoneprint model of structuralist anthropology has several major implications for all the human sciences, and offers a theoretical bases for a holistic approach to the study of the cultural record. Edmond Furter works as a freelance researcher and editor in Johannesburg.
