What do you know about Duluth ley lines?

Would any of you be able to tell me more about ley lines and why Duluth is on this map?

I came across this PDF while trying to learn more about them after being introduced to them while watching some Ghost Hunter-type show (they’re all the same to me) the other night.

This particular show featured an investigation of the Ancient Ram Inn, which was built over an old pagan burial ground. The current owner, John Humphries, also shared that he had personally been sexually attacked by a succubus not once, but twice in recent history.

The investigators informed us that a succubus is not much more than a demon slut who goes around raping men in their sleep, collecting their stuff (and no, I’m not talking about their expensive electronics and fine china) and selling them, I’m guessing, to an Incubus (one of their male counterparts). And these guys later use the stolen goods to impregnate the women. Who makes this stuff up?

I should also mention that Humphries didn’t appear to be complaining about the “attacks.” Anna Nicole Smith would have liked to seen this episode, I’d bet.

Well! I’m not sure why I had to tell you all that. Just to make you jealous, perhaps.

Anyhow, I got the impression that this Humphries character felt very strongly about alerting us all that his inn also happened to fall on a ley line. Any attempt to explain why this was important, I just didn’t get. I’m not quite sure they really knew, or cared to know. Now, if sex had been somehow involved… 😉

From what I've read, ley line points seem to be fairly arbitrary and subjective.  I can only assume that Duluth is a ley line point because it is geographically significant being the westernmost point of the Great Lakes.

I don't get the whole idea of ley line mapping.  Because of the curvature of the earth the lines they have mapped above really make no sense whatsoever.  I'm willing to be dissuaded of my skepticism if someone wants to educate me, but I just don't get it.

it's a new age hooey effort to make linear ideas work in a spirally natural world.

I'm with you, Heidi.  Of course, the same accusation can be made of much of western science.

ironic? what's with the empirical method-bashing?

No bashing of the empirical method here.  It is, however, interesting to note that, as Heidi said, making "linear ideas work in a spirally natural world" could easily describe much of western science and philosophy in the 18th and 19th century.  Newtonian physics was a clunky, though largely accurate, description of the physical world that allowed 20th century physicists to find the places where this very linear understanding broke down.  All part of the process.

Finding patterns in nature is the very beginning of systematic understanding.  I'm just doubtful that these "ley lines" will stand up to this kind of process.

The ley lines will not stand up to the empirical method. That's all I'm saying.

I don't know about ley lines & ghosts, but that inn owner's hair was truly terrifying.

I find it interesting that the Duluth "Star Biome" has points in Duluth and Chicago, then nothing. Anyone could line up two cities, then plop the star over the rest of the area.
On the subject of ley lines: I think there is so much new age rubbish spread about them, that if there is anything significant about them, it'd be near impossible to discern.

Who's blog does that link to? And isn't a Liminal Threshold redundant? 

Guess Canada is Ley deficient.

yah but "the Shat" came from Canada, NO?

The really funny thing that sticks out in your subconscious about what's "wrong with this picture" you'll notice if you look carefully.  A couple of things.  First of all, there's nothing wrong with doing small circles on a sphere (the gray dotted ones); they represent coplanar planes cutting through the globe and the intersections as a result (like slicing a whole orange in consistent horizontal sections).

However, if you see it, you'll notice that, even though somewhere in the vicinity of NYC is depicted as the center of these small circles, the north pole has to be tilted toward you so that that a true horizontal line that would lie on a plane touching the globe would touch it somewhere above the arctic circle in that 2D representation.

The circles that do not have the same center of NYC would in fact, if laid down on the surface, be elliptical shapes bent in the shape of something like a potato chip (with no upturned sides of course).

You can map spherical entities to a planar surface (the inner entities crunched, outers stretched), but you'd have to know how deep the plane is inside or outside the sphere.

I especially love how they tried to incorporate the golden ratio... giggidy giggidy goo.

Bummer, it's late.  I meant parallel planes, not coplanar planes.

From the blog...

"The Cetacean Studies Institute Dedicated to enhancing the connection
between Humans and Whales, Dolphins & Porpoises.

CSI is a program of a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in the United States,
and has it's primary offices in Coffs Harbour, Australia.
CSI moved to Australia in January, 2000, from it's home base in Santa Fe, New Mexico."

Clearly Santa Fe is a GREAT place to base your dolphin study institute.  Well, I guess they did move to Australia... I just though that was funny. I haven't seen very many dolphins in New Mexico.

Not to beat a dead horse (again), but I should point out that the diagram is positively silly because a mapping of spherical to planar is not linear.  I leave it as an exercise to the reader to blow up (increase in size) the globe pic, and then try to make the lines match the same ;).

I think this video might help explain why Duluth is included in the Ley Lines of the Great Lakes.

I believe you are talking about Ghost adventures, seeing as I'm watching it right now while reading this. But I too was looking these up and this intrigued me. I think maybe a ley line starts  or ends in Duluth.

The men who were raped by the succubus were asking for it.

Easy to dismiss all this as bunk but there's a lot out there on this subject with some being crap.  There are energies that relate to celestial bodies.  For example, what are the chances of the Great pyramid, the Pyramid of the Sun, the supposed pyramid on Mars, and the eye of Jupiter all landing at 19.5 degrees latitude?

Hi gang, there’s a line that runs from Duluth to Thomaston Maine, to which I have traveled. I’m from Duluth and now live in New England. I’ve also researched geopathic stress zones, and found a common denominator. Thomaston is built on one huge limestone quarry. I don’t have to elaborate on that if you know Duluth. Can’t say what or if there’s a connection, but geopathic stress can really mess you up in some cases. (I’ve lived in a house with flowing water underneath.) What’s the connection with the key line? Don’t know.
