    It seems that after so many years researchers have managed to find the meaning behind the famous monument. Or at least for the time being.

    Tiger, Cinefactus and Akela like this.

    A symbol of newly acquired peace... Interesting...

    I wonder, if they had any kind of usable tricks for moving the stones or if most of the surviving able-bodied crowd ended up with semi-permanent injuries as a result? *shifty*

    This reminds me of that case of a high school (do not remember name of the school or the year it happened) where the officials basically came to a point where they had to either segregate the races or to find a way for them to co-operate. They ended up putting students into mixed race groups to complete mandatory projects. The trick was that a piece of information would only be available to one person in the group, another piece - to someone else, etc.

    The task was impossible to complete (or even get a semi-satisfactory grade on) without using the information available to every single member of the group. Thus, true co-operation resulted, changing people's supposedly permanent opinions of each other.

    Does anyone know of the case? I could not find the reference...

    Anyway, it seems to me like in the case of the Stonehenge, the elders gave their people a similar task, with a similar goal - to produce co-operation, and thus a more lasting peace.
