The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America
is the culmination of my seven-year odyssey to understand the origin of a mysterious symbol that first appeared on a highly controversial, century-old artifact called the Kensington Rune Stone.
The discovery of the meaning of the Hooked X was stunning, as was the secret history behind it that gradually unfolded during my quest to learn more about that history through research. This journey has been nothing short of amazing as it winds through the mysterious worlds of the medieval Cistercians, the Knights Templar, and modern Freemasonry.
The story begins with the discovery of a 202-pound stone unearthed by Swedish immigrant farmer named Olof Ohman, who was clearing trees in preparation for farming back in 1898. The slab of graywacke contained a lengthy inscription carved in Norse runes whose message has only been recently deciphered accurately. In 2005, I co-authored a book entitled The Kensington Rune Stone: Compelling New Evidence that presents a large body of evidence that conclusively proves the artifact is indeed a fourteenth-century document.
The Hooked X picks up where that story leaves off taking the reader on a journey from Minnesota to the New England Coast, where four more medieval rune stones are found. The trail then leads to a mysterious round stone tower in Rhode Island that could only have been constructed by a highly controversial group from Europe before the time of Christopher Columbus. The story that unfolds behind the Hooked X shatters many historical and religious paradigms and ultimately reveals the startling untold history of North America.

The New Trinity and the Hooked X
The Father, the Daughter, and the Holy Mother. Sound familiar?
Many people in the Western world are familiar with what is known as the Trinity, the Christian concepts that the Almighty shows itself in three forms: The Father (God), the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit (the invisible energy of God that flows through all things). In more recent times, people have started to see that this "Holy Spirit" may in fact be the feminine aspect of the Almighty, making for a complete universal family of Father, Mother, and Child.
But such a view has been, for a long time, considered heretical and at odds with orthodox teachings of Chrisitianity. Goddess worship is strictly forbidden, for God is a man and Jesus Christ is a man, and only men can be priests and women must suffer for what Eve did. And yet, in spite of these social dogmas, there were still people, men, who believed that women deserved a higher regard, especially in the realm of religion. Amongst the most famous of these groups, the Knights Templar.
There is a symbol known as the Hooked X. It is said to be a version of an ancient Swedish rune, yet such a symbol never existed in those ancient times. However, the Knights Templar who were friends of the Norse may have created this symbol. But what does it mean?
In his book "The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America", geologist Scott Wolter is certain that this symbol is of Templar origins. And for those familiar with "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, one knows that the Templars regarded the feminine just as sacred as the masculine, and made heavy use of symbolism and allegory to both hide and impart truths.
Ancient symbolism used triangles to denote gender and their related aspects. An upwards facing triangle encompassed the male aspect of the universe. A downwards facing triangle, the female aspect of the universe. The letter X features both, with the center of the X being that brief touching point of these two aspects, these two worlds, where all energy accumulates, and life as we know it is created.
Now, for the Hooked X - the top half of the X, or the feminine half, features within itself yet another feminine triangle. It is smaller and within the larger feminine. Could this be a symbol for child, specifically daughter? Those familiar with the Templar tales of the Holy Grail would know that the Templars believed that Mary Magdalene was the wife of Jesus and she bore his child, a daughter named Sarah.
The Hooked X would seem a Templar symbol of what can be called the New Trinity: the Father, the Mother, and the Daughter; Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Sarah daughter of Christ. Such an emphasis of feminine divine is indeed Templar.
If the Trinity of the Heavens is "The Father, The Mother, and the Son", and Earth is the opposite of Heaven, it would seem to follow that the Trinity of the Earth is "The Father, the Mother, and the Daughter." And Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of God is here now. Perhaps this new world indeed calls for a New Trinity.
