Rennes le Chateau subconscious imprints Stoneprints in historic Western sites

Rennes le Chateau’s archetypal sphere

Rhedae, ‘Chariots’ or ‘Wagons’, was a Visigoth city, either at Limoux 13km northward, or at Rennes le Chateau. This natural citadel with access to groundwater, was a wagon horse grazing station behind Couiza, on the Aude river and land crossroads. The name could be from Regnes, Kingdom (of the Castle) in Catalan. A castle and village here was inevitable. A Roman road to Bains passed just north of Rennes, via 14 L’Escale, Stopover Inn. Another passed further south. Amphores, a mosaic, and Republican and Imperial coins of Julius Caesar and Augustus in a waste tip behind Escale ruin, dated since BC60, indicate that Roman colonisation in Southern France extended to Rennes les Bains from BC46 (dating after Val Wineyard).

Rennes le Chateau’s subconscious landscape includes Couiza, and is as complex as in the earlier, adjacent Bains. At Rennes the eternal structure is now identified at several levels of scale: in the church domain (see another post); church floor plan (see another post); and church mural statue group (see another post). The same applies to cities, including Paris and London (Stoneprint Journals 3, 4). Priest Sauniere, like Boudet in neighbouring Bains, unknowingly served the global, subconscious agenda of all cultures, each in different styling. His conscious plans, and his income from selling masses and holy water by post worldwide, were curtailed by an egalitarian bishop in Carcasonne, and by the French Minister of Religion, after his royalist restoration agenda became too daring in an 1885 election sermon.

Rennes le Chateau from the air, looking north. Left is the church ground (see Rennes le Chateau church ground, in another post) and church (see Rennes le Chateau church floor plan, in another post). Mid top is the castle. Beyond is a waste landfill. Mid below is the parking and water tower. (Photo: Schmiede des Wissens).

Rennes le Chateau fills a small hill, on a plateau between the Sals, Couleurs, Aude and Rialsesse valleys. Next to the Bains basin, the Rennes landscape forms an upper or ‘northern’ sphere (see Two Rennes double stoneprint, in another post).

[]3; Coume Sourde. See Rennes les Bains stoneprint, type 3, in another post. The two Rennes axes 3 meet here.

[]3-4; God’s Valley hill, Lavaldieu, a small sharp height with a hamlet on top, probably part of a separate Bains South stoneprint. It had a 1000s chapel of Knights of St John of the Cross….etc….

4; Labadous pond. (Photo: Armitage).

[]4 King; Washing, Labadous. Esoteric author Elizabeth van Buuren, daughter of USA president Martin van Buuren, bought the land and built a square (rectangle) fountain (pond) with four (two twins) sitting (squatting) lions (kings) facing inward. Inside was a heart shape (more typical of 12) of rocks, outside a heart shape of 333 roses, half 666, ‘of beast or man, a welcome to aliens in the last days’. At the entrance to Rennes, she placed a Sacred Heart placard, at a track to a supposed Lemurian underground temple, Agartha (more typical of 12)….etc….

4p; Couleurs cliff 1600s windmill ruin, renovated as ‘Visigoth tower’. (Photo: RegardsDupilat).

[]4p Galactic South Pole; Couleurs cliff (junction). Windmill ruin of 1600s restored as ‘Visigoth tower’ (armoury, of 12 opposite), by Van Buuren (see 4 above).

[]4p; Pump source, Pomp (spout).

[]4p; Trees planted in a V-shape, for supposed ‘UFO ascension’ (5 ascend, judgement) by Van Buuren (see 4 above).

[]4p; Hole, Aven (juncture), due south of Rennes. Former guest house owner Noel Corbu marked this hole as a treasure site, but see 6 Casteillas below.

[]4p; Boudous, at Tables or Inn of Balm, Borde d’en Salva.

[]4p; Four Righteous source, Quatre Ritous, probably emperors (4 king); or royalist priests suspended by the Minister of Religion, Goblet, for preaching politics in the 1885 election: Rennes Abbe Sauniere, Roullens curate Tailhan; Bourriège curate Jean; Alet les Bains vicar Delmas….etc….

[]5a Priest; Colours stream, Couleurs (varicoloured). Caves and mines on both banks. A gold statuette was found here (noted Stanley James). In a field in 1860 a 50kg ingot was found, and 20kg of melted Arab coins.

[]5a PriestB; Sarrat Pelat hill, Soubiros.

[]5b Priest; Cubic stone, perhaps a model for some artworks, such as Pietro (‘Stone’) Perugino’s Galtzin triptych of St Domenico in St Gimignano (noted De Raaf). He painted Magdalene with her ointment jar (5c container) in the right panel, under a cubic rock, her posture as of the central Mary: arms below belly, fingers forming three X’s (see Rennes le Chateau church floor plan, 11 altar, in another post).

[]5b; Furnace or Oven Cave, Fournet (of 4), south of the stream, renamed Magdalene Cave (5c container) by Van Buren (see 4 above). Near a stone with a foot hollow and scratched crosses (ritual), now at Magdala Tower, which is visible from the cave…etc…. Wilkinson (aka Hammott) hoaxed (see Rennes le Chateau hoaxes high and low, in another post) a small chest with ‘parchments of Solomon’s key’ in the cave (5c container, texture).

[]5b; Soubiros village east, cross-paths.

[]5b Priest B; Receded southern cliff.

[]5b B; Plateau of White Fort, Sarrat de la Bezu. Gold finds (see Rennes les Bains map, type 4, in another post).

[]6 Exile; Casteillas hill village, Castillium, Small Fortress. On Soubiros Hill, twin peaks (two-headed). Casteillas  is on a steep bluff with a ‘horse’-shaped rock, far from Rennes (egress), but visible from Magdala Tower. It had a windmill (while Bains Lovers Source had a water mill, see Rennes les Bains map 6, in another post). Bals valley caves had Bronze Age bodies, axes and articles (sacrifice). Casteillas has Iron Age ruins with red paint (sacrifice. See Rennes le Chateau church floor plan 2c, in another post), gold coins of BC300s to AD50s, including a Roman Janus (double-headed); and Visigoth, Crusader and Marauder treasure legends. Legendary shepherd Ignace Paris in 1645 recovered a sheep, slid down a hole, found skeletons and gold, filled his pockets and wallet (5 tailcoat); refused to tell from where (5c secret), and was stoned (6 scapegoat) for theft….etc…. Mythical hero Paris chooses between virtues (see trump 6, Lovers, or Paris’ choice. Types, trumps and hour decans table, in another post). Former Belgian owner Philippe Schrauben sold the site to re-publish Boudet’s book in 1984 with a preface: ‘True Celtic Language, and of Merovingians of Rennes le Château, myths and realities; response to Plantard, Lincoln, Vazart and company.’

6-7; Mine 1894 with crystal ceiling and mud floor. (Photo: Drawingninja).

[]6-7; Mine marked 1894, crystal ceiling, mud banks. A movie team said they entered 250m “under Rennes hill” (6 ingress). Geology faults tend north-east.

[]6-7; Pailheres, Haystack, Bed (7 bag).

[]7 Child; A Bals source.

[]7 Child B; Campagne les Bains.

[]8 Healer; Les Estous, hamlet due west or Rennes, east of Linas ridge. On the coast route passing just south of Rennes to Bains. Estous could be from Easter, near the spring equinox, Frenzy in Latin….etc….

[]9 Healer; Esperanza north, west of the Aude river. Former southwest part of 10-11 Montazels. Felt hat industry (more typical of 9c). English speakers live here.

[]9c Lid; Cremation ossuary, 200m long, east-west, skeletons stacked in layers. Revealed (revelation) by work on the new access road 1908. Perhaps Cathar bodies, one of several ossuaries. The Rennes area may have been a cemetery and underworld due to caves, an afterlife Arcadia of Couiza.

[]10 Teacher; Roman road stage (guard), south of Belviere.

[]10; Belviere. And Joseph Mountaint. Rennes sunsets 13 Jan and 28 Nov.

[]10; Pastabrac, Couiza industrial zone south of the Aude.

[]10-11 Founbit, dinosaur egg nest (11 womb). See Rennes le Chateau church mural, type 4, in another post.

[]10-11; Montazels, south-west of Couiza. See Rennes le Chateau church mural, type 4, in another post. The Celtic Nemeton gathering (10 council) may have been here, serving 9 Esperanza and 6 Casteillas (see Rennes church mural 2c, in another post).

11; Fumade ruin. (Photo: Gralssuche).

[]11 Womb; Fumade Rock, ‘Smoked’ (Salted Fish), a Fort and Roque (pronounced Roca) on a small ridge, just north of a track, perhaps a Roman road. Some war and plague victims were dumped here (tomb), perhaps for raptors to clear.

[]11; Couiza, at the Sals-Aude confluence, formerly navigable. Celtic crossroads market. A Visigoth monastery on higher ground near the confluence about AD400 built a small church, later St John Baptist, starting Couizanum, from Cupitius, Cusius, ‘Lusty’. Oyster shells remain in the river gravel. The church town crest and church window have a Eucharist wafer (wheat) in a grail (11p hour decan Crater. See Types, trumps and hour decans, in another post), on a cross (11p juncture); with a star above and a Paschal lamb below, of the wool industry. These Visigoth monks also started Rennes le Chateau castle in 414, perhaps using Roman loot…etc….

[]11; Joyeuse Castle in Couiza, a river ford palace with trapezium courtyard (interior) and moat (water), on a Visigoth foundation with crypts and a tunnel (interior) under the cold room, now silted up. It supplied crops (wheat) to the Crown. See Joyeuse castle, palace of privilege, romance and tragedy, in another post.

[]11; Place Bistan, ‘Garden’ in Arabic (11 interior), in the centre of Couiza.

[]11; Ulpian bookshop, named after a Nostradamus verse, perhaps about Rome’s Basilica Ulpia in Trajan’s forum, after his family name, Ulpius. An unidentified temple and niche behind the basilica, completed by Hadrian and his wife, expresses type 11 Womb in Trajan’s Forum (Furter 2016; p354-355). That temple is now under Valentini Palace, between Bakers Guild’s St Mary of Loreto (womb) dome, and Sts Nome and Mary (womb), on Rome’s axis 11p. Above the colonnades were gilded statues including a chariot, ‘From spoils of war’. Rome’s treasury was nearby in Saturn’s temple on the Capital. Visigoths brought Roman loot to Rhedae, ‘Chariots’, c414. Or the verse is about Ulpiana Splendid, a Roman city in Cosovo named for Trajan Ulpius, near silver and lead mines, and a mound grave (grave) of a princess (womb) with a silver treasure of BC200s. A quake in 581 ruined Ulpiana. Nostradamus notes a quake revealing graves in Century 8:66; “When the DM writing is found [his son’s emblem paintings?], and ancient cellar (cave) with perpetual lamp [9c] discovered; Loy, Roy [4 King] & Prince Ulpian [Trajan’s son?] is proved, Pavilion Royne&Duc under the cover.” (9c)….etc….

[]11; Couiza gypsum mine, Encantados. Mining exposed a dolomite cave (interior). Aude counsellors in 1900 entered 500m. Closed 1914, re-opened 1940 by Castel, then by Siau. The Couiza end collapsed on ‘Spanish’ Clement’s men and horse (tomb).

[]11p Galactic Pole; Olive press, Les Oliviers. Legendary Olivier was a friend of Roland. The name is from Germanic for Alphen Army or Ancestor (12 ancestor). The Latin word means olive.

[]12 Heart; Les Pras, hamlet on north bank (water-work).

[]12; Rennes Castle (interior, weapon). Its cemetery is closed off. A water tank passage (water-work) was reopened 1999.

[]12 Heart B; Condamine, surname linked to Hercules (felid). At Monaco port a statue shows a lion-headed man and siren with a golden apple or heart. Condamine town logo has a lion head, half Fleur de Lys bee, and chapel (13c).

[]13 Heart; De Lauzi source, perhaps from Almond (tree, of 14).

12; Shepherd’s huts, Capitelles. Top right horizon is Bains 11 Cardou peak.

[]13; Stone Huts, Capitelles. Round corbelled huts (interior) for shepherds, lambs or bees (of 14), worldwide.

[]13; Caustaussa Mill, Moulin (water-work), north bank, formerly south, now an old age home, race and bases remain.

[]13 Heart B; Coustaussa, Custodia, Guardian, castle (bastion) between Bains and Rennes. ‘Farmers’ Generals’ controlled the hated salt tax, gabelle. An old map labels this area Materre, My Land. In the church, the murderer (death) of priest Gelis on 1897 Nov 1, scrawled “Viva angélina,” perhaps for ‘Viva ange linea, lignée des anges, Long live the Angelic Society’. Their nickname was Brouillard, Fog or Mist.

[]13c Head; Stone circle at New Mill, near old millrace, at a Rialsesse bridge.

[]13c; Stone well near the river, perhaps a wishing or spells well (oracle), now filled and blocked (lid), noted Val Wineyard.

[]14 Mixer; Stopover, L’Escale, camp or Inn on the old Roman road; amphorae, mosaic, coins.

[]14; Water Wheel, Rodier,  east part.

[]14; Catchment, Captee dam.

[]14; Cassiopeia Hill, 61 degrees ENE from Rennes St Magdalene, sunrise on her day (time. See Rennes le Chateau church plan, type 14, in another post).

[]14; Cassaigns. And Bains axis 14.

[]15 Maker; Mouscairol depression.

[]15; Siala plateau.

[]15B; Wolf Pass, Pas du Loup (canid), on the Coustaussa road north of Sarras. Near fortress ramparts. Of Lupé family, Wolf, of Pilat region. And Bains axis 15.

[]15B; Peyre Picade, with a source behind Red Plateau, Sarrat Rouge, flowing north to the Rialsesse. Near hamlet Jaffus, Craft Goods (bag).

[]15B; Fayne-Peyude, ‘Gladly Gained’.

Rennes le Chateau priest Berenger Sauniere made expansive renovations, using unexplained wealth. He failed to start a Magdalenian pilgrimage, and to restore a Habsburg king, but his life raised Rennes legends to popular notice. (Detail from one of his own postcards).

[]Rennes landscape archetypal axial centre is in the village, near the castle, at Dragon of Wheels, ‘Dragon de Rhedae’ restaurant. The centre is analogous to the ecliptic pole, dragon myths, and Draco constellation. Rennes had three churches (polar trio); The castle’s first outer chapel St Mary, later changed to St Magdalene; St Peter (initially St John?) built by Voisins about 1300 in St Peter Street, 60m south of the church (see Rennes le Chateau church ground plan, type 9c, in another post. Coppens 2012. Smith 2018); and the castle’s alter inner chapel, later to St John Baptist. The hill has rifts, water tunnels, boreholes and treasure digs.

[]Midsummer is on road D52 bend (juncture) north of Rennes (see 11p above).

[]Midwinter is on the southern road fork (juncture), at an imagined ‘Roman Tomb’ between Rennes and Couleurs windmill cliff (see 4p above). The celestial polar axle lies nearly north-south (orientation).

These markers place summer on axis 12, analogous to Leo, implying spring and the cultural time-frame as Age Taurus1. The Taurus1 time-frame is confirmed by legends of Isis, replaced by Artemis, replaced by St Magdalene. These emblems are analogous to hour decans 15 Sirius, 1 Auriga, 2 Pleiades and 2c Algol, which in turn hosted spring sacrifice and adolescent rites. The archetypal and stellar spring point remains part of type 2 Builder. The celestial spring point moves with Aries ‘sign’, dragging some type 3 Queen myths with it, as it did through Pisces constellation from about BC80 to AD 2016 (Furter 2014). A parchment text noted ‘an Isis temple at Rhedae, renamed Magdala under Titus AD 70’ (Smith 2018). The date reflects destruction of the Jerusalem Temple, and the start of Christian legends. The five structural layers of expression are subconscious to artists, architects, builders and members of any culture.

Rennes le Chateau subconscious imprints Stoneprints in historic Western sites

Rennes les Bains ‘Celtic’ circle stoneprint tour

Rennes les Bains attracted many legends: a Greek ‘Arcadia’, a Celtic ‘stone circle’, a Roman ‘Legion’, Judaeo-Christian and Visigoth ‘royal exiles’, Cathar heretics, Templar ‘geometers’, and correspondence theorists. It welcomed dinosaurs, Ice Age hunters, outposts of Gauls, Romans, Jews, Visigoths, Cathars, Spaniards, Franks, Crusaders and the Church; to its cool, hot, and salt water, grazing, strategic cliffs, building stone and minerals, just off the Aude river trade route from France’s Mediterranean bays. Each polity left some foundations, mines, graves and names, worn thin by economic, military, political and theological occupations and suppressions.

In contended places, history is elusive. The first known settlement in the Sals river basin, between the Blanque confluence and Rialsesse confluence, was a Roman village (see 10 Montferrand below). Its castle ruin became one of the sixteen axial points around the spa resort, Rennes les Bains, ‘Wagons at the Baths’. Its sources are at 3 Clots or Mud; 4p Circle; 5a Magdalene or sulphurous; 6 Lovers; central Queen or Reine under the Residence at 40°C; Bains Forts on the right bank under the Hostel 47.5°C, both blocked due to bacteria; 12 Pontet; and 13 Sweet or Doux 37°C. Around Rennes les Bains valley is a ragged oval of higher sites, each characterised by nature, history, buildings and legend, as Bains priest Henri Boudet (1886) noted in puns and riddles. This ‘equator’ of sites makes the Sals basin a concave, lower sphere of waters ‘under the earth’, next to the plateau and knoll of Rennes le Chateau as an upper sphere. The Bains stoneprint diameter is about 3x4km, similar to Jerusalem, Rome, London, Paris and other building sites, but rural.

Update 2020: Copies of Stoneprint Journal 6; Rennes le Chateau stoneprint tour, 2019, Lulu.com, 20 pages, including eight pages in full colour, including a loose insert of an extract in French, is now also available on mail order from Amsterdam, at Eur/$15 via Paypal and email to Edmondfurter at gmail dot com

General archetypal themes on this site include the half-types, 2c, 5c, 9c, 13c, of secrets, codes and revelations; type 12/13 Heart, of war, forts, death, water-works and passages; and 4p, of junctures and water. Some archetypal features are natural (confluences, springs, stones), most are cultural. Archaeo astronomer Alexander Thom, who surveyed Celtic monuments all over Europe, noted “a pattern in the landscape” at Rennes. Many authors have sought conscious survey schemes here. The stoneprint model reveals subconscious behaviour that could resolve the search for ‘codes’.

Rennes les Bains and Sals river basin (map after Brouillard 2009. Type labels and axial grid by E Furter).

[]Type label; Site (noting archetypes): SEE MAP:

[]1 Builder; Head of Man, Cap de l’Homme, named by Boudet (1886) after a rock knob carved as ‘head of Christ’ (see photo below). He broke it out for a collector at Alet les Bains, but later cemented it into his own presbytery wall, now in the museum. It is probably a water goddess (rain), or Mitra, ‘Bond’ or ‘Friend’, an Indian, Iranian and Roman god (see Stoneprint Journal 4: London), rock-born (builder), with a lightning bolt (lightning, sack), also the label of an initiation grade (see Rennes le Chateau church plan, 15g doors faces, in another post). Mitra resembles Perseus as bull-killer with a dagger (twisted posture, bovid, spring sacrifice). Some stones here are engraved with Christian crosses front and back (cluster). On a small rise is a horse-head or altar rock that had ‘ears’ or ‘horns’ and a cross, next to Fist Rock.

[]1; Defence Rock, Roc d’en Barou, on a ridge between two paths.

[]1; Violets Hill, Col de Violas (former spring), on the same ridge.

[]1; Hairpin track bend (twist) between Violets and Cabanasse. Boudet labels the plateau above it Brugos, Heather. Rennes le Chateau axis 1 also extends here.

[]2 Builder; Halo cliff, Auriol, equinox sunsets (former spring). Rennes le Chateau axis 2 also reaches here.

[]2c Basket; Breiches ridge, over a wash to the Sals in town. C-types are off the grid, but within their own narrow sectors.

[]2c; Coast, Plas de la Coste, on the plateau.

[]2c; Cross of the Circle, Croix du Cercle.

[]2c; Clots ruin, 50m north-east of 3 Caunes mud source. Brouillard (2009) found a small cavity in a pilaster, where a stone shelf was broken off (see photo below), containing a thin slab with chisel marks (container).

[]3 Queen; Mud Rock, Roc d’en Clots (pool). Boudet noted; “Left is a view to Bains spa [named Reine (queen)] and church. Nearby are chiselled five Greek crosses by the first Christian missionaries [implying that Celtic Christianity preceded Rome], sign of redemption (sacrifice). Roman Republic conquests had plunged Celts [‘Stone People’ of the Bronze Age] into a deplorable state.” British Celts would sympathise. Someone later carved similar crosses elsewhere (see 4, 6, 13 below).

[]3; Cave, Caunes (more typical of 2), Shrine (priestess) in Occitan, muddy source (pool), 50m south-west of Mud Rock. Boudet labels it Ruisseau des Hounds, Current of Dogs, a pun on caunes as canes (but see trump 3:18, Moon, over two dogs or dragons at a pool, indicating Boudet’s archetypal inspiration. See Types, trumps and hour decans table, in another post)….etc…. Caunes drains south-west into Trinque Bouteille, Clinck Health Bottle (2c container), and to the Blanque. The Red Serpent poem links mud to Cross Station VII and Ps69;15; “Jesus exhausted falls again (sacrifice). Pull me from the mud (pool).”….etc…. King Philip Augustus fell in mud (pool) under a collapsing drawbridge at Gisors in 1198, and pledged to Mary for rescue. Nostradamus noted ‘a great Roman’s grave’, perhaps of this king named after an emperor (see Rennes le Chateau timeline, in another post); or of empress Elen of Maximus in Anglesey, Lady of the Lake (Gilbert 1999. See 11p Serres; and Rennes 11 Ulpian, below)….etc….

[]3; Ejaculation Source, Coume Sourde (pool, spring season). Ernest Cross found here a ‘Templar’ cross (sacrifice). Plantard faked the V/M stone with ‘Templar’ crosses (see Rennes le Chateau hoaxes high and low, in another post). Rennes le Chateau axis 3 also reaches here.

[]4 King; Trembling Rocks or Rollers, at Coast, Coste. Boudet labelled them among several Dice cubes (rectangle), and ‘Druid Council, Neimheidh,’ adding bad puns on ‘Neim, Name, Lead (king); Eid, anagram of Dei, God; H, Homme, Man’. Near a stone-lined grave (king), 2×1.5m (rectangle), facing east.

1 Head of Man or Mitra. (Gralssuche). []4 Devil’s Throne. (Bibliotecaplyades). []4p Hermitage stepstone. (RLCresearch).
[]4; Devil’s Throne (king), of 1700s Count De Fleury. A cross was chiselled on (spring in Age Pisces).

[]4; Dead Man, l’Homme Mort. Boudet labels it Moorish Man;  Coume Sourde stream as Moorish; its western end as My Gauls or Monarch Gaul (king), Mon Gauloise (the cigarette brand is later).

[]4; Bezu. Three rear guard castles on the southern Roman road from the coast: West at the hamlet edge; and Tipler outcrop; and at Jasse is Bezu castle, Albezu, Albedunum, White Fortress (rectangle, walls), later a Roques-Rouge family sheepfold (see trump 4:19, Sun, furnace and wall. See Types, trumps and hour decans table, in another post). A mansion of Pierre de Voisins of Rennes, donated as a Catalan command, with ditches and wood walls (walls), named Mas Deu, Mansion….etc…. Re-melted gold (furnace) was found near Bezu. Voisins and Fermes families minted counterfeit coins (king) here. Below the ruin is Tipler hamlet, near Charbonnieres, ‘Treasure Chest’ estate, and Jacotte Inn….etc…. Further south is Montsegur, last Cathar stand against Crusaders.

[]4p Galactic South Pole; The Circle, a natural formation partly under a house (juncture). Boudet saw it as the centre of a mill (see Landscape zodiac theories are a dead end, in another post), but it hinges only the ‘south galactic’ equator.

[]4p; Circle Source, Source de Cercel, a rusty trickle (spout). Its large Visigoth vase is now in the museum.

[]4p; ‘Old mine’ at a river bend, cavity near the water (juncture), perhaps ore wash (water), not a mine or tomb.

[]4p; Hermitage, stone walls under an overhang (juncture) at Blanque river ford (juncture), near Coume Sourde inflow from God’s Valley. A stepping stone (juncture) in the stream (water) is engraved with dragonflies mating (limb-joints) as interlocked spirals (juncture) around an ankh head, as the infinity ring in Blanchefort arms (noted Templarii3m). Several 4p points are common in site sectors, between axes 4 and 5.

[]4p; Castle ruin, El Casteil, and white stone heap. If an axial counterpart is found at Cardou’s western mining road, this castle could express a type 5a.

5a Magdalene Source. (L’Independent). []3 Mud source ruin wall. (Brouillard). []6 Lovers salamanders. (Brouillard).
[]5a Priest; Magdalene Source (water), Madeleine. Assumed female initiation site (priestess, ritual, assembly). Boudet says it was Gode, Grail (priest), in the land register, and Serbairou foothill was Gode Hill. He forced a pun on Gode as ‘Go to Dice’ (see 5b Serbairou stone, below).

[]5a; Blanque-Sals confluence, Baptismal Font, Benetier (priest, ritual, container, assembly, water), under a bridge, pont (Pope. See Rennes le Chateau church type 5, in another post). Mixture (5 varicoloured) or ‘marriage’ of 6 Lovers source, 5 sulphur ‘tears’, 3 Mud via Health Bottle trickle, into Salt river. Magdalene’s Galilee has hot and salt water to preserve fish and bread (see Rennes les Bains as a New Jerusalem, in another post).

5b Serbairou foothill had a dolmen and sports field (see Rennes les Bains as New Jerusalem, in another post).

[]5b Priest; Serbairou foothill sports ground (assembly, ritual). Boudet’s only mapped ‘dolmen’ (5c container) is near the river on Serbairou west, Gode Hill, Grail (5c container). He puns badly on Ser as Bolt, Lock; Bai as Bay, Pond, Mill Dam. But he notes a Thimble (5c container) 10m from a mine, probably a small grave, with a cross and focus hole (as at 10 Montferrand), ‘aimed over [10] Bains church steeple to [13] Black Rock and [13] Blanchefort.’ Thus Thimble was near 6. Boudet adds a chapter on boar hunt: “In mountains with deep woods… hideout of boars, are terrains [(assembly)] named pijole, pijoulet; pig, to pork, jole with the head [tilting contests, with a grail as prize]. The Pijole of Bains is at Serbairou, south of two rollers or shaking rocks.” These are at 5c Bordeneuve, not 4 Tremblers. He notes one of Hercules’ twelve tasks….etc…. He wears a lion cape (felid, of 13 opposite), for tasks (hyperactive) as punishment (judgement). South of Serbairou lies Charbonniere, Treasure Chest ridge, where Boudet places Gound Hill, Ulcer.

[]5c Basket Tail; Serebairou Hill, Gode, Grail (container. See 5b, above).

[]5c; Bordeneuve, New Tables or Inn, at a cubic ‘dice’ stone. Brother Dubosc had re-worked an old jet stone mine here.

[]5c; Yellow Tables or Inn, Borde de la Canarine (5 varicoloured).

Bains 6 Lovers source. The wall top right is a water mill remnant. Just below it is a modern small flat niche with a salamanders engraving. (Photo: Canalblog).

[]6 Exile; Lovers Source, Amours (marriage. See Trump 6, Lovers, or hero Paris’ choice. See Rennes le Chateau type 6 Casteillas, in another post). Mill ruin. Modern relief of salamanders downward entwined (double-headed). On a rock seat, Plantard or Lincoln faked an engraving of a pierced heart (sacrifice) inscribed ‘Calvet 1891’ in plaster, hinting at opera star Emma Calvet as Sauniere’s love interest (Dietrich 2018) in the year of his discovery.

[]7 Child; Forest stream, Foret, confluence at Sals 90 degree bend.

[]7; Sweet Hill, Col Doux.

[]7g Galactic Centre; Corral or ruin east of Sals-Forest confluence, Soulane slope.

[]8 Healer; Soulane Hill summit (pillar), on the Paris observatory meridian. Boudet labels it Cugulhou, ‘Roughly Hewn,’ notes ‘menhirs’ (pillars), and a + shape.

[]8 outer; Mines, Les Mignes, (smelter).

[]8; Sougraine, near salt source (healer).

[]8; Salette, where two girls saw a vision of Penitence (see Rennes le Chateau church stoneprint, type 1, in another post).

[]8; Sals source (healer), at Mt Bugarach.

[]9 Healer; Fajole Bergers, Shepherds, Boudet’s four Fallen Stones (bent, pillar).

[]9; Grazing, Forage Yvroux, south fork.

[]9c Basket Lid; Soul, Soula; and grain silo (container). Boudet notes Kairolo, Cereal, Calendar (10 wheel), Secret (revelation), and puns on ‘Key (container), Ear (oracle), Hole’ (silo), where ‘Celts sowed grain, shared bread, and heard words of faith’.

[]9c inner; Lime tree, Tilleul, on the riverbank in the graveyard, perhaps a survey hub (instrument. 10 wheel).

[]10 Teacher; Montferrand, Iron Mt (metal), first village (market) in the basin, water and wash at Coudal, Elbow, or Captee, Gather [ore] (metal). A Roman expedition BC50 found iron, lead, jet, amber, salt, warm water, low grade gold and copper. On the high point was probably a Roman tower (guard) watching Bazel mine. Used since 500s by Visigoths, Cathars, Franks. A 1700s castle (guard). Fleury family fled Revolutionary looters in the 1790s. West were graves at stone crosses with ‘telescope’ holes. Further out is Capt Boyer’s mine. The road to Sougraine (see 8, ablvoe) was via Bains.

[]10; Villeneuve, between Montferrand and Bains, at a source and pump.

[]10; Bains church to Sts Nazaire and Celse, a Milan preacher and disciple martyred by Nero. They are also linked to Carcassonne, Atun, and Lazarus. In the porch between church and cemetery is a crucifixion memorial to Abbe John Vie, successor of Vicar Delmas, but dated 1856 at the death of Delmas. Vie died 1872. Delmas’ cross is on axis 11 at the village entrance road cliff. Another cross stands slightly eastward, on the Villeneuve road, in line from the church to Bazel hill mine, inscribed ‘Jubilee 1854’ or 185L. The three crosses may imply the church as a survey ‘windrose’ centre. Delmas had described many Roman items of gold, silver and bronze. A hallway slab notes Boudet and his brief successor Joseph Rescannieres, 1914-1915.

[]10; Town Hall, Mairie. Church garden.

[]10-11; Museum, Salle de Patrimoine.

[]10-11 outer; Pontils stone and tomb near bridge and a confluence, 1600s, a Poussin scene (see Archetype lives also in Arcadia, in another post). Battle memorial or Rhedea border. Near a Mitterrand Paris meridian marker (see 11p Serres, below).

[]11 Womb; Cardou Peak, from Chardons, Thistle in Occitan, or spikenard, herb of Magdalene. She expresses types 2, 2c, 14 or 11, the latter when pregnant. Or from Cardinal, Central or Across. Highest peak in the valley, symmetrical, rounded (womb), in focal view from the village street. It has mine shafts and a rumoured tomb (womb).

[]11; Bazel hill, rounded (womb), with a mine and rumoured tomb (womb). Brother Dubosc reworked its gold mine. Marquis PFV De Fleury of Rennes, husband of a Hautpoul, got the licence instead in 1789. Revolution intervened.

11 Delmas Cross in the village entrance cliff, a rumoured tomb. Digging attempts were sealed with concrete. (Google Street). On the cliff may have been a Roman signal obelisk

[]11; Delmas Cross in village cliff (see 10 crosses, above). Rumoured tomb (womb).

[]11; Roman signal obelisk on village cliff, with enclosure walls (interior) and spiral stairs, as at Greoux les Bains. The base remains. And Quarries Squadron, Carrieres Escadados (noted Gralssuche).

[]11; Queen’s Baths, Reine (womb), …. etc….

[]11; Roman Forum, Deposition Wall to report crimes (law). Boudet found a Venus statue (womb) in house Chaluleau, sold in USA; and a water container with Christian cross …. etc….

[]11p Galactic Pole; Lambs, Lampos, white rocks and mine waste (juncture) …. etc….

11p Serres St Peter’s church is between two meridians. The town is divided in two by a stream. (Val Wineyard, RennesX2).

[]11p outer; Serres, Serre, ‘Hothouse’, or Greek Sirios, Sun, a city in Macedonia; or French town Serres. Boudet punned on Ser, Bolt, Lock, Castle of 1500s. On the France meridian (juncture) from Dunkirk via Paris observatory to Prats de Mollo. Cassini’s 1600s survey is celebrated by Mitterrand’s 2000 ‘Green’ line. One marker is at Serres bridge (juncture). The other Mitterrand marker is at an old olive tree at St Peter’s church. Inside on the ceiling are two connected crosses on ‘rocks’, perhaps for Christ and Peter; or Paris and St Sulpice meridians; or Pachevan and Pontils tombs (see 10-11, above). Pontils is north of road D613, north of the old Roman road. Nostradamus noted a tomb ’beside the pavilion [Pachevan? Vatican?], near the greenhouse [Serres?], where the wild beast lay [Arcadia?].’ Perhaps of Christ, or a Habsburg, Christian Rosenkreutz.

[]11p inner; Roman altar base inscribed C Pompeius Quartus, 100 (Centurions) Pompei’s Fourth. Perhaps fake, now in the museum. Delmas (1709) noted this division was unknown, and doubted a local garrison (Smith 2018).

[]12 Heart; Sals-Rialsesse confluence, salt into fresh (water-work). Basin exit at Mourette, a family crest of three Templar crosses over spread eagle (raptor).

[]12; Pontet source, on Barrier Hill, above its pipe (water-work) at the Sals. Perhaps Blesia, Bles, gold in slang.

[]13 Heart; Blanchefort castle or lookout ruin (bastion), over a tunnel, cistern and hand-pump (heart, water-work). Perhaps a 900s Visigoth post (war), or Roman salt tax base. Blancafort Castrum was in a 1067 tribute to Barcelona County. Jaffus Abbey had it in 1100, in a turf war with Alet les Bains abbey, to whom Pope Calixtus II gave it 1119. Templars claimed to re-open a gold mine 1130 or 1156, using German smelters who could not speak to locals. They may instead have re-smelted Arabic or other booty. Bertrand de Blanchefort, fifth Templar Grand Master, was also linked to German miners and finance. Lord William of Blancafort fled royal forces in 1230. Montfort’s aide, Pierre de Voisins, received Rennes castle, Bains land, title Blanchefort, and taxes 1231 (see Rennes le Chateau type 11 Couiza, in another post). Rebuilt on the raised tank 1300s… etc…

[]13; Black Rock, Roque Negre, and mine (interior). Water tunnel, legendary underground ‘round temple’ (rounded), mosaic floor (see 13 Blanchefort above), or buddling tank (water-work)…. etc….

[]13; Rabbit Warren, Clapiers (interior).

13 Sweet Bath, Bains Doux hot source. (Postcard, Bousquet).

[]13; Sweet Bath, Bains Doux, hot source, pipe at the river (water-work). Boudet labels the building Fangallots, ‘Escape from Gallows’ (death. See trump 12, Hanged Man inverted from gallows. See Types, trumps and hour decans table, in another post)…. etc….

[]13c Head; Finger, Pointu Rock, yellow, between Blanchefort, Black Rock.

[]13c; Favies spring and ruin, perhaps a former shrine (oracle).

13 Blanchefort had a small castle or lookout, over a tunnel, cistern and hand-pump. A 900s Visigoth post, or Roman salt tax base. Poussin used this horizon in the centre of his Arcadia painting of the Serres tomb. See Archetype lives also in Arcadia, in another post. (Photo: Susansadventures).

[]13c; Blanchefort peak and west cliffs, once fortified (13 bastion). See the profile of this peak from a low angle, in a Poussin painting, in Archetype lives also in Arcadia, in another post.

[]14 Mixer; Paths below Cabanasse, nearer the centre (ingress)… etc…

[]14; Bains Doux path bend and fork.

[]14; Cassaigns. Rennes axis 14 also reaches here.

[]15 Maker; Coumes, Fountain stone north of Cabanasse.

[]15 Mouscairol. Also Rennes axis 15.

[]15g Galactic Gate; Cabanasse, ‘Cabin, Tent’ (15 bag, rope), and stone cross Cugulhou, ‘Windbreak, Jacket’ (15 bag).

Bains priest Henri Boudet, author of ‘True Celtic language and the stone circle of Rennes les Bains’ (1886). He saw the Sals basin as surrounded by twelve ‘palaces, drawers’ or months, yet he did not propose a ‘zodiac’ here, a correspondence theory error that Plantard and some other authors have made. Instead, the valley has a ring of subconscious features, 3.5km in diameter. (Scan: Bill Hammott).

[]Axial centre; at the edge of a yard behind the Post Office.

[]Midsummer; Shepherd’s House track end (juncture); or  Doux hot spring.

[]Midwinter; Isolated building on the east bank. These markers place midsummer on axis 13 or 13-14, analogous to Leo or Leo-Cancer, implying spring and the cultural time-frame in Age Taurus or Age Taurus-Aries. The transition was about BC 80, from Imperial Roman to Republican Christian Ages. It is confirmed by the general theme of 2c Basket of Mysteries, here in the Breiches knoll sector; and 9c Lid, here in the Soula and Kairolo Granary sector. Structural layers of expression are subconscious.

The above points are marked on an axial grid on the Rennes les Bains map.
