  • Strange Building in San Diego

    Take a look at the strange building in San Diego. It is on the Naval Amphibious Base on the peninsula just south east of Coronado. The building is in the perfect shape of a Swastika. The coordinates are : worldwind://goto/world=Earth&lat=32.67604&lon=-117.15753&alt=2035

    This is a bizarre shape to see anywhere, but on a US military base. What were they thinking?

          It's a pretty good shape for a building, it leaves lots of windows and courtyards.

            And also, before the Nazis used the swastika, it had a completely different meaning. Don't remember right now what it was but it was a positive thing.

            So don't judge them too harshly eh?

              The History of the Swastika

              The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix.

              Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.

                so this is it?

                no more info?

                i am still wondering:


                architect?

                time of construction (after WW2??)?

                meaning? <-- this is not coincidence&#33;

                greets and hope for some answers. thanks for anybody posting anything about this structure (if you want to read about swastikas in general type that in in google and you´ll get plenty..)

                thanks.

                    Well, it&#39;s been spotted by someone else somehow: The Register - Google tracks Hitler to San Diego (that site is firmly tongue in cheek :P).

                    "The Seal&#39;s Lair", Bougainville Road, US Navy Exchange, San Diego, aparrently.

                      And for more detail...(Google Earth Rocks&#33; BTW&#33;&#33;&#33

                      I am pretty sure these are the SEAL barracks at the San Diego Naval Base. Here is a shot of the barracks at just under a 1000 ft up.

                      The buildings aren&#39;t connected in the center as it appears to be a courtyard meeting type space. Still, the overall shape from further up does look more Swastika like.

                      Now, how come I can&#39;t find the Nazca Lines on this thing?&#33;

                          Turn on the toolbar (Ctrl+T I think) and click the USGS Urban Ortho button.

                            The Nazis used a Swasticker as their logo, which is the same shape (or, very similar to) the building mentioned in this thread.

                              Make it short, I don&#39;t have time to read it all, move on...

                              In ancient times, the Swastika turned toward the RIGHT which made it pure representing light, good luck, spirituality, etc. The Nazis just took it and turned it to the LEFT which represents Evil, darkness, and death. Hitler imposed this symbol in honor to the THULE Society, which is the hidden society who originally sponsored Hitler&#39;s agenda and taught him the ways of the dark practices of that occult.
