The following set of numbers comprise what I call the cosmic sequence:

27, 54, 108, 216, 432, 864, 1728, 3456

Each successive term is double the value of the preceding term.

The first term, 27, is equal to three cubed. Pythagoras said that three cubed represents the cosmos.

In Buddhism the traditional Great Retreat lasts for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days and the number 27 represents the highest level of knowledge in Rūpaloka, known as the world of form.

In the Kabbalah there are 27 letters, corresponding to 27 channels of communication with God. The Hebrew numeric system is additive, requiring 27 symbols (1-9, 10-90, 100-900), emphasizing formation from three nines.

There are 27 signs of the zodiac in Vedic astrology. See here.

The human hand has 27 bones…

…and strangely, many popular musicians are members of the 27 Club, meaning they died in their 27th year of life. 27 Club members include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and many others.

54

There are 54 years in a triple Saros cycle. In other words, it takes 54 years for the Sun, Moon and Earth to return to nearly identical celestial geometry such that an eclipse occurs on the same day and at the same time.

The Moon perfectly covers the Sun during a total solar eclipse.

A perfect round of golf scores 54 points, although this level of perfection has never been achieved in competition.

“I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.” -Annika Sörenstam

By the way, many golf balls are made with 432 dimples.

The Rubik’s Cube has 54 colored faces, a perfect cosmic puzzle.

108, 216, 432

Many of the bodies in our solar system resonate with terms in the cosmic sequence. Accuracy percentages are given in parentheses.

Saturn 108,000 km polar diameter (99.3%)
Saturn 10,800 day orbital period (99.6%)
Venus 108 million km orbital distance (99.8%)
Earth 108,000 km/hour orbital velocity (99%)

Sun’s diameter is approximately 108 Earth diameters (99%)
Earth averages 108 solar diameters from the Sun (99.5%)
Moon averages 108 lunar diameters from the Earth (98%)

Moon 2160 mile diameter (99.9%)
Earth 21,600 nautical mile meridian circumference (99.99%)

Jupiter 4,320 day orbital period (99.7%)
Jupiter 43,200 mile radius (99.4%)
Mars 4,320 mile diameter (98%)
432 x 432 = the speed of light in miles/sec (99.8%)

864

The Bible starts off with the famous story that God created the world in 6 days and then took a day off to rest and catch some rays.

6 days = 8640 minutes

Perhaps this is the purpose of the story, to encode the following information about SUN & DAY:

SUN diameter is 864,000 miles (99.8%)
DAY is 86,400 seconds (mean solar exactly)

1728

In SIPS Volume 1 (Jerusalem part 1 episode) I show how the cubit that measures Jerusalem measures 1.728 feet. 1728 such cubits measure the sacred geometry of the city. The X’s in the diagram mark the holiest spots in Christianity (Golgotha) and Judaism (Holy of Holies inside Solomon’s temple).

Jerusalem

The New Jerusalem dimensioned in the Book of Revelation is a cube having a volume of 1728 billion cubic furlongs.

3456

The Earth’s polar radius is 3456 royal miles (99.99%), where a royal mile is 8/7 of a statute mile.

This straight of numbers reminds me of the following terrestrial connections in my post It’s About Time:

As I blogged in my post on 432 Park Avenue, physicist Ray Tomes discovered that powers of 34560 proportion the universe at vastly different scales:

  • If we take the average distance between moons and multiply it by a factor of 34560, we get the average distance between planets.
  • Take the average distance between planets, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between stars.
  • Multiply the average distance between stars by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between galaxies.
  • Take the average distance between galaxies, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the size of the known Universe.

David Wilcock summarized Ray Tomes’ research here.

Update 2 Oct 2015:

A spreadsheet of numbers Viktor from Sweden sent me inspired me to apply the 6:5 ratio to angular measure, which results in the cosmic sequence.
