Neolithic string theory

A radical new interpretation has been made of a neolithic site in West Cornwall in the UK. The photo below shows this site

which has thus far had various interpretations, including suggestions that the O is a singularity through which you might pass in the quest for eternal health and fitness, provided that you accumulated the correct winding number known only to a few initiates.

Theoretical physicists have now been forced to reveal that this is an advanced string theory calculation done all the way back in neolithic times. Hitherto, this knowledge had been suppressed because of its potentially negative effect on the success of grant proposals for similar theoretical work being done in modern times. The outlook for string theory is not good, because it is now the oldest theory of everything by thousands of years, which makes its lack of concrete predictions all the worse than had been assumed thus far.

Do you have evidence, any evidence at all, that these Neolithic megaliths have anything to do with String Theory? Since you are apparantly open to completely made up explanations, I think the stone megaliths were made to spell LOL or "laugh out loud", which is proof that ancient man knew how to text message.

The clue is in the date of my original posting, but maybe you had already noticed that!
