Rennes le Chateau archetypal landscape includes Couiza. It is as complex as in the earlier, adjacent Bains. At Rennes the eternal structure is now identified in subconscious expressions at several levels of scale: in the church domain; church floor plan; and church mural statue group (see other posts). The same applies to cities, including Paris and London (Stoneprint Journals 3, 4). Priest Berenger Sauniere, like Boudet in neighbouring Bains, unknowingly served the global, subconscious agenda of all cultures, each in different styling.
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.
Greek Cycladic islands salt evaporation pan bases often traced out planetary calendars. One terracotta pan bottom incidentally expresses the archetypal cycle of sixteen types in a rare axial grid. The rare design compares well with Egyptian polar decans (see another post on the Seti1 ceiling), but due to archetype, not diffusion.

Gender of characters in cultural media, adds a range of natural and social nuances to other typological categories, which have emerged from structural art analysis statistics. This paper demonstrates some aspects of the rigorous ‘grammar’ or ‘DNA’ of behaviour as embedded in artefacts.
Four structuralist points, and four semi-types, were first isolated in art and rock art analysis; then confirmed in organ reflexology points; and tabulated by seasons; then confirmed in buildings and site analyses; then tabulated among elements. Thus nature confirms cultural structure.
Stoneprint, the human code in art, buildings and cities (Edmond Furter, 2016, Four Equators Media, 400 pages, 170mm x 295mm, 130 illustrations) resolves the mysteries of correspondences between ancient cultures. The book reveals the core content and ‘grammar’ or ‘DNA’ of culture. We have an innate subconscious compulsion to express a specific, complex, archetypal set of features, in sequence, and on an axial grid, in all our works.
Criss-crossing trapezium lines form a kind of ‘forest’ over the core area of the Nazca geoglyphs. The character figures are in continuous-line format, indicating a well-developed style, perhaps based on textile weaving crafts, or to enable processions. Their ecological themes speak of climate change. Here is the peripheral sequence of characters in the Nazca core area is (noting archetypal features).
