The Heavily Cupmarked (Cupuled) Rumsen Rock at the Presidio of Monterey Near the Sloat Monument is the Fertility "Virgo Megalith" We Have Been Seeking for the Pacific Region

We finally found our fertility Virgo stone for the Pacific region of the land survey of Native America by astronomy. It could date to ca. 3000 B.C.

Rock Art Oregon at http://rockartoregon.com/cupule-boulder-presidio-monterey
writes that a megalith currently found at the Presidio of Monterey is known inter alia as the Rumsen Sacred Rock, Indian Ceremonial Rock viz. Boulder, or simply as the Rain Rock.

We will use the name Rumsen Rock to refer to this megalithic boulder, because the designation "sacred rock" can not be rightly used, as no one up to now has known the rock's original purpose, sacred or otherwise, so naming it "sacred" is a bit premature.

Some have even called the boulder the "Rain Rock" because of its cupules viz. cupmarks, a purported use which of course can not be right because there are cupules also on sides that can not catch rain, nor does a rain rock designation explain why the cupules have different sizes and why there are so many of them. One researcher counted 43 in all. And there are figures on the rock too.

Others have affiliated the rock with the weather because of its original hill-top placement at CA-MNT-15, which, as Rock Art Oregon writes, is "a prehistoric site". California Prehistoric Site CA-MNT-15 has been described in more detail elsewhere as "a prehistoric midden and bedrock site near the Sloat Monument". John Drake Sloat was the man who claimed California for the United States.

Our decipherment of Rumsen Rock shows it to be astronomical in nature, with the cupules viz. cupmarks on the rock marking stars, especially the large ones on the top, primarily those of Virgo. Rumsen Rock could rightly be called "Virgo Rock" or the "Virgo Megalith". Our decipherment is below. Our placement of cupmarks in our decipherment drawings is subjective and will need to be confirmed in essential particulars by neutral third party researchers. Virgo is certain. The other stars are not. We relied on photographs of Rumsen Rock at http://rockartoregon.com/cupule-boulder-presidio-monterey.

As one can see from the images, the cupules viz. cupmarks of Rumsen Rock mark principally the stars of Virgo, plus the neighboring viz. stars that surround it on the perimeter, including Corvus, Crater, Coma Berenices, Boötes, Corona Borealis, Hercules, Ophiuchus, Libra, Serpens Caput, and also apparently also the stars of Scorpio and Sagittarius, although those markings are faint at best. We have erred on the side of inclusion and are certain that many of the "smaller" marks might not be duplicated by neutral third party observers. The larger marks on the top front side, however, clearly mark the stars of Virgo. One can discuss about the rest, which are not as important to this decipherment. Virgo is the chief group of stars here.

Rumsen Rock also might mark the Autumn Equinox ca. 3000 B.C. but there is no specific detail that points unequivocally to that conclusion, other than the stars chosen by the ancients for the left side edge of the megalith.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
