“A local belief holds that an avenue of contemporary oaks once lined a causeway from the Tor to King Arthur’s castle at South Cadbury… An old Glastonbury record says that King Arthur laid siege to the Tor where a rival chieftain had his stronghold in about 500 AD. If so he would have marched there along the legendary causeway shaded by the companions of old Gog and Magog.”

“Some say that the overlapping circles are an important symbol from Kabbalism. Some say that Freemasonry discovered and preserved the tradition of overlapping two circles with the center of each on the perimeter of the other. Some go on at length about polarities and symbolism of rebirth and formulae of sacred geometry and harmonious tuning of subtle energies.”
