Has this 'vast complexity' Jon has 'discovered' been confirmed by anybody?
Don't forget that some 50% of each of these three Girdle Stones are buried in the Passage walls, roof and floor, and thus completely invisible to all and sundry.
What would 'need such vast complexity in the masonry of an otherwise simple, short, narrow, slippery, dark, angled, straight, rectangular shaft?'
Has anybody here any suggestions?
Surely what we are looking at here is something that has no practical application; in other words, something purely symbolic.
