This is about rock piles and stone mound sites in New England. A balance is needed between keeping them secret and making them public. CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am going to start the comments with the question: do we think in each case that there is a spirit that lives in that split? If so, can the spirit detach from the split or is the spirit constrained to remain, equivalent if you like, with the physical split?I am not convinced it is a good universal concept. What is going on in these pictures?
I should explain: There appears to have been an attempt at one time to connect the boulders inside the split with a line of stones placed end to end. Several cobbles are arranged this way between the boulders (one can see a bit of this in the photo above). They do not connect with either of the split halves, but at one time they might have.
One more comment: The sequence of photos is incorrect. The one presently at the top is of Pomfret, VT; the middle one is of Montville, and the bottom one is of Holliston. Also, regarding the semicircle of stones at Pomfret, the one at the far left, touching the left split, is quartz; all the other stones are gneiss.
I re-arranged the photos. So Montville is at the top, then Pomphret, then Holliston.
