Location, Location, Location

It has long been known that the three most important factors determining real estate value are: location, location, location. I notice that this aphorism is true not only for residential and commercial properties, but also somewhat unexpectedly for sites having great symbolic and/or spiritual significance.

My research reveals a previously unknown system of non-monetary valuation transcending any particular culture, tradition, or time period that takes the entire Earth and the built environment into account.

Repdigits and transcendental mathematical constants are the keys to locating sites in this system. For example, consider the fact that the Western Wall in Jerusalem is 666.6 nautical miles from the Kaaba in Mecca. These two are the most sacred sites in Judaism and Islam.

Why nautical miles? There are 6x6x600 nautical miles in the meridian circumference of the Earth, revealing more repdigits in the unit used to do the encoding.

The nautical mile was originally defined as one arc minute and the metric system was originally defined by dividing the arc length from the pole to the equator into 10 million parts called metres. So one degree is 10,000,000 m / 90° = 111,111.111… m and one arc minute is 111,111.111… / 60′ = 1851.85185… m.

The nautical mile was defined as exactly 1852 m by international convention, so they rounded it off to the nearest meter. This obfuscates two very interesting patterns. The repeating numbers use the same digits of the Great Pyramid’s slope angle of 51.85° (51°51′) and the following:

1851.85185… yards = 5555.555… feet = 66,666.666… inches.

There is also an unusual link between nautical miles and meters:

666.6 nautical miles = 1234543.2 meters
6666.6 nautical miles = 123456543.2 meters

The black stone in the Kaaba is 5055005 yards from the Mahabodhi Temple in India, the location of the original tree under which the Buddha became enlightened.

‘Sages’ from Quantification

The Buddha apparently died 333,333 feet from the place where he was born.

The distance between the center of the world’s largest Buddhist meditation center (capacity 1 million meditators) and the third eye of the world’s largest Buddha statue is exactly e million (2,718,282) yards. The transcendental constant e is Euler’s number, used in finance, engineering and many scientific disciplines.

300,000 Buddha statues adorn the Dhammakaya Center and the yard is a unit equal to 3 feet. The ‘Great Retreat’ in Buddhism correspondingly lasts 3 years, 3 months and 3 days.

According to the Bible, Jesus lived 33.3 years and performed 33 miracles. Did King David, father of Solomon, really rule for 33 years and did Jacob really have 33 children or are these repdigits actually codes?

The Kaaba, the stone cut temple of Ellora in India and the largest religious complex in the world at Angkor Wat not only form a great circle alignment but the distances between them also encode 33° and π.

Long ago, the Western Wall in Jerusalem formed the foundation of Solomon’s Temple. Solomon’s Temple was 33.33° from Stonehenge.

The Dome of the Rock stands on the site of Solomon’s Temple and is 3333.33 km from the center of the symbolic Place de la Nation of Paris.

In the 19th century, one of Cleopatra’s Needles was moved exactly 3333.33 km from the harbor wall in Alexandria to where it now stands in London. Likewise the Ishtar Gate of Babylon was moved 3333 km to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.

The Eiffel Tower stands 3033.33 km from the site of the former Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt. In turn the Lighthouse was 3333.33 km from the standing stones of Carnac, France. The oldest standing obelisk in the world, in Heliopolis Egypt, is in a great circle alignment with the Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt and the replica Lighthouse of Alexandria, Virginia (333 feet high), officially titled, “The George Washington Masonic National Memorial.”

The center of the Eiffel Tower is exactly e million (2,718,282) feet from the center of the Cathedral of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, which is topped by solar discs. The Sun disc’s circumference is e million miles (99.99%).

The world’s tallest building is currently the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It is e thousand feet high and 1633333 meters from the Kaaba. The total land area of the League of Arab States equals 13333333 square kilometers (99.9997% accurate).

‘Arabic Connections’ from Quantification

A higher structure known as the Kingdom Tower is currently under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It will be 3303 feet high when completed. Funding was just secured to complete the tower, probably by 2020.

The Kingdom Tower will be 33.3° from the Golden Temple in India, which the most sacred shrine in Sikhism.

The center of the Kingdom Tower of Jeddah is 3,333,333 inches from the word Allah (in Arabic calligraphy) atop the world’s highest and largest clock tower in Mecca, steps from the Kaaba. The Kingdom Tower is also oriented so one leg points at the Kaaba and the Abraj Al-Bait Tower.

The vector connecting the word Allah on the clock tower terminates at the center of the equilateral triangular void within the Kingdom Tower, symbolizing the Eye of Providence, or Allah in this case.

Sometimes important sites are related by repdigits within cities. For example, consider Tehran, Iran. The Tower of Freedom is 55,555.5 feet from the center of the Mausoleum of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Interestingly, this distance is also equal to 666,666 inches and both complexes ironically have similar plans. The Tower was built in 1971 to honor the Shah and later renamed Azadi, meaning Freedom, after the Revolution of 1979 that ousted the Shah. The architect of the tower was a Baha’i who was driven out of the country when religious pluralism was rescinded in the Revolution of 1979, led by the Ayatollah Khomeini. It is therefore highly unlikely that there was a conspiracy to locate the Mausoleum of the Ayatollah in a repdigit relation with the Shah’s tower. The encoding transcends culture and religion, a secret in plain sight.

I have thus presented you with many such secrets in plain sight, many of which hinge on different units of measure. These units of measure are ultimately based on, and have surprising resonances with the dimensions of the Earth and the Moon. For example, the Imperial system of inches, feet, yards, furlongs and miles has clear resonances that are far from accidental. There are 63360 inches in a mile (5280 feet/mile x 12 inches/foot). There are 63360 furlongs in the Earth’s diameter. The circumference of a circle encompassing the Earth and the Moon measures 63360 miles.

John Michell discovered that the combined Moon & Earth radii measure 1x2x3x4x5x6x7 miles. The arc length around one-quarter of the circle circumscribing the Earth and Moon is 8x9x10x11 miles, which is also curiously equal to the Earth’s diameter.

Read the essay “Yards” in my Anthology for more info on the resonances of that particular unit.

The Imperial system is not unique in having resonances with the Earth and the Moon. The Metric system does also. The combined diameters of the Earth and the Moon are equal to 10,000 times Ф km (99.97% accurate). The symbol Ф represents the Divine Proportion. The Earth’s polar diameter is 10,000 times the square root of Ф km. The Earth and Moon are divinely proportioned with respect to each other as shown by the triangle and the diagram showing two intersecting golden rectangles tangent to the Earth below.

In fact the Imperial and Metric systems are related by the divine proportion, or nearly so (see the tiny half percent gap on the upper right).

So our systems of units resonate in multiple fascinating ways with the structure of our planet and its natural satellite. Here are some surprising repdigit patterns in our units, revealed by a hexagon inscribed within the Earth.

I do not believe the Moon was made by aliens or is made of cheese, nor do I believe the Earth is flat or that sea-monsters patrol its edges. Please read David Mathisen’s well-written article, “The Invisible Kraken: Evidence that the Earth is not Flat” and think about it if you are a “Flat Earth Truther.” Do not contact me with flat earth theories or conspiracies about NASA or scientists in general, or about people suppressing flat earth theories or the theorists themselves.

“Belief is the death of intelligence.” -Robert Anton Wilson

So what do I ascribe to the meaning of location, location, location? Although you might initially think that these structures were sited according to a grand human conspiracy, the great antiquity of many of these examples stretches this theory well beyond its rational breaking point. The standard materialist view would have physical agents coordinating all of this, so aliens are the next most likely suspects. However, consider their motives.

If aliens encoded repdigits and transcendental mathematical constants both in our units of measure and in the locations of many significant structures, they must have had for thousands of years, and continue to have up to the present time, intimate knowledge about what our species considers significant. If we could put aside our primate/primal fear of people who aren’t from around here—aliens—we might consider that these agents know us very well, so well perhaps, that they must not be alien at all. They might know us better than we know ourselves.

Why would anyone bother to encode all of this—what could they possibly hope to accomplish with such a massive effort? Clearly the encoding transcends any particular culture, ethnic group, religion or belief system, spans a great deal of time, and reveals a high level of intelligence. As such it appears to be a universal message to humanity, one that has been there in plain sight all along, waiting for discovery. This has only been possible for about a decade, since GPS satellite data has been publicly accessible through computer interfaces such as Google Earth. Now that the genie is out of the bottle, what does it mean?

Encoding messages in the locations of significant structures is a non-destructive, gentle approach that reminds me of the low-impact of crop circles. Information is conveyed but it remains entirely up to us to assign meaning, if and when we are able to do so and curious enough to do it.

I think we have to work this out backwards, in other words, “by their fruits we shall know them.” The fruits have to be knowledge and perhaps human enlightenment. So who would want to educate and enlighten us?

We can rule out God, unless you define God as a being who transcends religion. We can rule out aliens too, unless they aren’t actually alien and have transcended their own selfish agendas.

More likely are higher selves and/or spiritual beings, but that requires one to consider trans-material reality—things beyond that which we can readily weigh and measure.

It’s amazing to me, but scientific materialists who believe that everything is made of atoms tend to see no contradiction that everything came from nothing in the Big Bang. Scientific materialists also believe in dark matter and dark energy. Neither dark matter nor dark energy has ever or probably can ever be detected, and yet we are supposed to believe these substances are 96% the mass of the universe, because that figure makes the math in the standard model of physics work out. That is like saying invisible pink unicorns are 96% the mass of the Universe, an unfalsifiable (you can’t ever prove that it is false) and therefore unscientific premise. Time to rethink the standard model?

“According to the standard Big Bang narrative, space and time did not exist prior to the Big Bang. Therefore, the “cause” of the Big Bang could not have existed within space and time. In that case, it existed outside space and time, hence was dimensionless, hence was immaterial, hence was mental! The very thing that scientific materialism claims cannot exist — independent, causal mind — is the only possible, plausible candidate for explaining the Big Bang.” –Hyperreason by Mike Hockney

In addition, we can rule out dark matter and dark energy as immaterial encoders (assuming they even exist) because these universal forces or fields presumably don’t “know” anything, including what is significant to our particular species.

The encoders are minds possibly imagined by a singular mind (the Universe itself) with an intelligence that chooses to encode repdigits and transcendental mathematics in the locations of our significant sites for some teleological purpose. I suspect that this purpose is to teach us eventually who we are.

Information processing networks

“Let us pretend that there was a machine, which was constructed in such a way as to give rise to thinking, sensing and having perceptions. You could imagine it expanded in size (while retaining the same proportions) so that you could go inside it, like going into a mill. On this assumption, your tour inside it would show you the working parts pushing each other, but never anything which would explain a perception.” -Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz

Perhaps the first thing to realize is that more is going on here than just atoms. Quantum physicists have known for a century that atoms are really 99.9999999999% empty space, but we have yet to come to terms with that information.

99.9999999999…% = 100%.

The only possible descriptions of sub-atomic particles are mathematical descriptions because that is precisely what they are: mathematics.

Our Pater & Mater (Latin: Father & Mother) are Pattern and Matter

“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.” -Nicola Tesla

This is the key: the universe is 100% mathematics, the universal language. There is no objective “substance” out there. However, if all is number, then who are you?

Tripolis

The ancient Egyptian Temple of Debod was moved to Madrid, and is aligned with St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

The Vatican axis continues eastward to Istanbul, which was once capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. Back then Istanbul went by the name Constantinople. The city went by the name Byzantium even before that, from 660 BCE to 330 AD. There are many layers and chapters to history.

Kevin McMahon wondered if he measured a line all the way from the Temple of Debod in Madrid to the ancient Egyptian obelisk of Theodosius in Istanbul, where would it cross Rome, exactly?

He discovered that the answer is the Lateran Palace, ancient Roman palace which was also the residence of Popes for a thousand years. Immediately outside the Lateran Palace is the largest obelisk in Rome—originally from Karnak, Egypt.

Rome is almost perfectly (99.7%) at the midpoint of this alignment between Madrid and Istanbul. Madrid was also originally a Roman settlement. Isn’t it interesting how this alignment of three cities is both Roman on one layer and Egyptian on another?

While I was pondering this tri-city alignment I noticed that Tripoli is due south of Rome. That’s curious on multiple levels. Lines connecting Tripoli to the tri-polis form a trident shape. Tripoli’s Arabic name literally means Bride of the Sea, which is a perfect moniker for a city resonating with Neptune’s trident.

Madrid, Rome, Tripoli are all their respective nation’s capitals. Istanbul was the capital of four successive empires in the past, although Ankara is the current capital of Turkey. That’s nobody’s business but the Turks. 🙂

We get the word capital, from the Latin caput, meaning head. The Capitoline Hill’s Temple of Jupiter was the head-quarters of the ancient Roman empire. It’s also what we connect to when we CAPITALIZE. This has unusual repercussions in the Roman law we are still subject to today.

The Temple of Jupiter has been a long time gone. Now the statue of Marcus Aurelius adorns the top of the Capitoline Hill. The Italian Kilometer Zero is literally the statue of Marcus Aurelius. Kilometer Zero is the point from which all distances in a nation are measured. All roads lead not only to Rome but to this point.

The distance from the Statue of Marcus Aurelius in Rome to the Arch of Marcus Aurelius in Tripoli is exactly 1000.0 km. It almost seems like it was surveyed to be that distance although we know that level of precision was impossible for the Romans, not to mention that the meter was invented two millennia later. And yet, there it is.

“Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it is impossible for anyone to accomplish.” -Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations is still revered as a literary monument to Stoic philosophy. Meditations takes the form of quotations varying in length from one sentence to long paragraphs. US President Clinton said Meditations is his favorite book.

I’m reading wisdom encoded in the landscape, a little like augurs of ancient Rome interpreted the will of the gods. However, instead of studying the flights of birds, I use Google Earth to take the auspices from the ley of the land.

“Who does not know that this city [Rome] was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?” -Roman historian Livy

On the spine of the Hippodrome of Constantinople, a Serpentine Column stands immediately adjacent to the obelisk of Theodosius. Quite auspicious, don’t you think?

It’s funny but this obelisk’s twin was once erected on the spine of the Circus Maximus in Rome. In the Renaissance, Pope Sixtus V had it moved across Rome to the Lateran Palace (yes, it is the one in the Tri-polis alignment). Both obelisks were originally the same height and stood together in the Temple of Karnak in Egypt.

The Lateran obelisk replaced the statue of Marcus Aurelius that had been there since antiquity so Marcus and his bronze horse were moved to the top of the Capitoline Hill.

The Serpentine Column has an even more amazing history.

“The Serpentine Column has one of the longest literary histories of any object surviving from Greek and Roman antiquity — its provenance is not in doubt and it is at least 2,491 years old.” –Source

This broken column was one of three legs that together once formed the Delphic Tripod. It is located on the spine of the Hippodrome because Emperor Theodosius took it as a spoil when he closed the Oracle of Delphi in 395 CE and ordered all pagan temples to cease operation. Theodosius himself received the last oracle reading ever made at Delphi. I wonder what the priestess told him?

The Pythia, as every priestess of the Oracle of Delphi was known, sat on the Delphic Tripod. This was where the goddess speaking through the priestess voiced enigmatic answers to questions that so often proved prophetic.

Themistoclea, priestess of Delphi, was one of Pythagoras’ teachers. The name he chose for himself, Pythagoras, and Pythia are from the same branch of a linguistic tree. It is hard to overestimate the importance of the Oracle of Delphi in the ancient world.

Ancient Greek pottery c.330 BCE in British Museum – Delphic Tripod and the Pythia

For example, consider the Oedipus myth. It bears summarizing here.

Oedipus learned from the Pythia, like his father had before him, that he was destined to murder the King and marry his mother. In response to the prophesy his father, King Laius, left Oedipus to die of exposure as an infant and believed he had perished. However, Oedipus was rescued and raised by a poor shepherd.

After growing up Oedipus went to have his auspices foretold by the Pythia. Learning his terrible destiny Oedipus chose not to return home from Delphi but to travel all the way to Thebes, Greece instead and start a new life for himself.

En route he had an altercation with an old man at an intersection where three roads crossed each other. The old man wanted to go first and tried to run Oedipus down. In self-defense, Oedipus killed him. Unbeknownced to Oedipus, the old man of course turned out to be his father, the King of Thebes.

Later on the road outside the city, Oedipus encountered a Sphinx that had been terrorizing the locals with deadly riddles. He ended up answering the famous riddle (answer: a Man) and the Sphinx inexplicably but conveniently killed herself (she is traditionally depicted with two exposed breasts as shown here). When he arrived at his destination he was told the happy news that he had been made King because anyone who killed the Sphinx would be given the throne and have the recently widowed Queen’s hand in marriage. He didn’t find out until much later that the Queen was indeed his mother.

You can apparently choose your fate but not your destiny. Destiny is the gods’ business.

Oedipus and the Sphinx by Francois Xavier Fabre (1808)

According to William Broad in The Oracle: Ancient Delphi and the Science Behind its Lost Secrets, “The Pythia of Delphi was arguably the most powerful woman of the ancient world.”

The Pythia was the last vestige of the ancient Goddess tradition. Here is a snake goddess from Crete more than a thousand years earlier. See any similarities to the Pythia or the Sphinx? They were holders of Serpent Wisdom.

The distance from the actual location where Pythia sat on the Delphic Tripod to the Sphinx of Egypt is 666 nautical miles. Note the uraeus on the Sphinx’s third eye chakra. Mark of the beast?

Snakes and 6’s have long gone together. Consider the Star of Life symbol. The snake climbing the pole is at an intersection where three roads cross each other. Sound familiar?

Apollo killed the Python and stashed its body in a crevasse under Delphi. Its rotting corpse was said to release the vapors which gave the priestesses of Delphi their visions.

Apollo slaying the Python

The scientific explanation is that these vapors were naturally occurring ethylene gas.

“Anesthesiologist Isabella Herb found that a dose of 20% ethylene gas administered to a subject was a threshold. A dosage higher than 20% caused unconsciousness. With less than 20% a trance was induced where the subject could sit up, hear questions and answer them logically, although the tone of their voice might be altered, their speech pattern could be changed, and they may have lost some awareness of their hands and feet, (with some it was possible to have poked a pin or pricked them with a knife and they would not feel it). When patients were removed from the area where the gas accumulated they had no recollection of what had happened, or what they had said. With a dosage of more than 20% the patient lost control over the movement of their limbs and may thrash wildly, groaning in strange voices, losing balance and frequently repeatedly falling. All of these symptoms match the experience of the Pythia in action, as related by Plutarch, who witnessed many prophecies.” –Source

There is nothing new under the Sun. In ancient Egypt, the Sun god Ra killed the serpent Apophis, personification of all that was evil.

“It was even thought that sometimes Apophis actually managed to swallow Ra during the day, causing a solar eclipse, but since Ra’s defenders quickly cut him free, the eclipse always ended within a few minutes. On the occasions when Apophis was said to have been killed, he was able to return each night (since he lived in the world of the dead already). However, in other myths, it was the cat goddess Bast, daughter of Ra, who slew Aphophis in her cat form one night, hunting him down with her all seeing eye.” –Source

These myths were echoed most recently in the medieval story of St. George and the Dragon.

Saint George and the Dragon by Gustave Moreau 1889

The distance from the Church of St. George, in Lalibela Ethiopia to Temple Bar in Paternoster Square in the City of London is 3033.33 nautical miles.

“The Church of St. George has been referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Lalibela, King of Ethiopia, sought to recreate Jerusalem, and structured the churches’ landscape and religious sites in such a way as to achieve such a feat.” –Source

The built landscape encodes uncanny messages, secrets in plain sight. Pater Noster means “our father.” The flaming golden “pineapple” atop Paternoster Square Column is quite solar. Thanks to Urban Asplund for inspiring this discovery.

Sir Christopher Wren’s Temple Bar provides pedestrian access between St. Paul’s Cathedral (also designed by Wren) and Paternoster Square. However, Temple Bar was relocated from its original position outside Temple Church. A dragon has marked that spot since 1880 in the form of the Charles Bell Birch’s sculpture.

I think these myths are all about the Sun triumphing over the Moon, a telling his-tory of men’s domination of women. We are killing ourselves with this tragic meme. We need a new outlook.

The alchemists saw the Sun and the Moon differently—as equal partners.

After all, the Sun and Moon discs share the same size, between 32 and 33 minutes of arc, in our skies. This is truly miraculous!

The opposition between man and woman, day and night, up and down, in and out, need not be externalized into a literal battle. The real battle is internal in all of us and exists within all forms of duality.

“He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe.” -Marcus Aurelius

I would like to rephrase that: “Whoever lives in harmony within themself lives in harmony with the universe.”

The sages of India understood all of this long ago. Lord Shiva’s attributes include a snake around his neck (Serpent Wisdom), a crescent Moon, and a trident called a Trisul.

Photo by Arjuna Filips CC BY-SA 3.0

Shiva’s Trisul represents a variety of trinities including past, present, and future or creation, destruction and preservation. In the human body, the Trishul represents the three main nadis, or subtle energy channels. Pingala is solar, Ida is lunar and the central Shusumna channel circulates kundalini energy up the spine when awakened by balancing your Ida and Pingala energies.

The landscape seems to be echoing the Trisul in the alignments connecting to Tripoli. It is 55555 arc seconds from Tripoli to Madrid, and 1666.66 km from the Arch of Marcus Aurelius in Tripoli to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

Hagia Sophia means Holy Wisdom and Sophia is honored as a goddess of wisdom by Gnostics, as well as by some Neopagan, New Age, and feminist-inspired Goddess spirituality groups. In Orthodox and Roman Catholic Christianity, Sophia, or rather Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom), is an expression of understanding for the second person of the Holy Trinity. –Source

The distance from Madrid’s Puerta del Sol, which is also Spain’s Kilometer Zero, to the Hagia Sophia is 3003333 yards. There is a crescent moon at the top of the spire on the dome of the Hagia Sophia. The Muslim calendar is lunar after all. Threes all the way between Moon and Sun.

All that is without is also within. Your body is the true temple, a hologram of the whole. Three subtle channels of energy twist within and around your physical spine, from the first chakra at its base up 33 bones to the head-quarters between your temples.

Speaking of your head, a third element is needed to transcend and integrate shiva (masculine energy) and shakti (feminine energy). The three nadis join back together in the 6th chakra (third eye). Trinity is always required to transcend duality.

Elemental charge is triple by nature. The third rail is electrified.

Elementary, my dear Watson

Thanks to Clive Hetherington who sent me the link to Peter Stanbury’s discovery of the proton to electron mass ratio and the fine structure constant’s relationships to π. I deduced the other symmetries.

The electron has a charge of one e (not to be confused with Euler’s constant e). The neutron has one up quark and two down quarks, whose charges cancel out making it electrically neutral. The proton has two up quarks and one down quark, netting a charge of one e, polarized oppositely compared with the electron. The fine structure constant is a measure of the strength of the interaction between charged particles.

I think it is vital to understand that there are trinities in the substructure of every thing (i.e. quarks) and that all is number, ratio, proportion, symmetry, geometry, beauty, and harmony. Everything is made of love. Admittedly, it usually looks upside down and bass ackwards, but that dualistic tension is exactly what generates the great mystery. Romae (Latin for Rome) is the first chakra, survival. Where we go from there is up to us. That’s amore (Italian for love)! Let us get the balance right this time.

Bonus: Thanks to Jordi’s comments on this post I measured the distances for another tri-polis, this time all within Spain.

The visual style of this illustration reminded me—back in April, I found another set of correspondences between three ancient cities in Mexico, and only now recognize it as a “tri-polis.” I am continually amazed at how these things come together in my own personal life but even more so about what it reveals about the impersonal world out there. They are connected as any microcosm is to the macrocosm.

New Jerusalems

Before I discuss New Jerusalems, let us step back and first examine Jerusalem itself. Solomon’s Temple was located somewhere on Jerusalem’s temple mount. However, there is debate as to the exact location of the “holy of holies” where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. Was the holy of holies located on the Foundation Stone inside the Dome of the Rock or was it located elsewhere on the temple mount?

In 1977 Dr. Asher Kaufman published a paper, ‘New Light upon Zion: the Plan and Precise Location of the Second Temple’ that located the most sacred place in Judaism about 100 yards north of the Dome of the Rock under a small dome formerly known as the Dome of the Tablets that I covered in SIPS Volume 1.

Dome of the Tablets from SIPS Volume 1

The late John Michell discovered what he termed The Messianic Axis in Jerusalem that corroborated the Kaufman theory.

The ark of the covenant held the 10 commandments, which actually sound a lot like spell 125 from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, but that’s another story.

Here is what the Messianic Axis looks like along with Michell’s 5×12 sacred geometric overlay. Richard Heath shows in his book Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization that the X’s mark the holiest places in Christianity and Judaism. I have shown how the 6:5 proportions of these X’s have a double-layered encoding in the metrology of Cubits. Curious how all these stories occurred along a line.

Michell’s sacred geometry of Jerusalem

Jan Thulstrup noticed that the dome of St Peter’s Basilica has an inner radius of 20.736 meters. The cubit that measures Jerusalem is 20.736 inches in length. This coincidence is entirely fitting for the holiest places in Christendom. Rome is a New Jerusalem.

“Christen-dome”

The name Peter means rock. Speaking of domes and rocks, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is 3333.3 km from La Place de la Nation in Paris.

The Tuileries Gardens in Paris shares Jerusalem’s 5×12 proportions. The Historical Axis of Paris exhibits the same pattern as the Messianic Axis of Jerusalem. The Sun King not only had but also built a messianic complex. Paris is a New Jerusalem.

Putting these patterns together, here is what emerges:

The Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées is 3652422 yards from the center of Jerusalem. The tropical year is 365.2422 days. The Rond-Point has 6 fountains arranged in a Star of David pattern. The heading from Jerusalem to Paris is 314° true north, recalling π. None of this is an accident but if it were, how amazing! What are the chances?

New Jerusalems are not an original idea. The Book of Revelation introduces the heavenly, or as we might see it now, a higher-dimensional template of New Jerusalem:

And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. -Rev 21:2

Also later in Chapter 21 New Jerusalem’s cube-it dimensions are given:

And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. -Verse 16

12 thousand cubed is 1728 billion cubic furlongs. Michell calculated that the 5×12 rectangle in Jerusalem’s long side measures 1728 cubits. The cubits measure 6/5 feet cubed, or 1.728 feet. Therefore the heavenly new Jerusalem of the Bible is dimensioned using the template from the real Jerusalem or maybe it is the other way around.

I showed in SIPS Volume 1 how DC is a New Jerusalem.

New York’s Central Park is proportioned by double 5×12 rectangles which just so happen to also correspond to the proportions of the dollar bill with 98% accuracy.

Urban Asplund measured the distance from the Round Fountain in the Tuileries, which corresponds to the holy of holies inside Solomon’s Temple, and discovered that it is exactly 6666.6 km to the center of Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park, Chicago.

Look at how both complexes are fronted by water, with the sinuous Seine running through Paris and the Chicago River and Lake Michigan in Chicago. Both complexes feature fountains with sprays of water.

In Revelation Chapter 22, John of Patmos’ described New Jerusalem as having a “pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God.”

La Jérusalem nouvelle. Le Fleuve de Vie. c1047

Could this water of life proceeding out of his seat refer to the spinal Kundalini energy discussed in Serpent Wisdom?

Grant Park has the same 5×12 proportions. Amazingly, Buckingham Fountain is the official eastern terminus of US Historic Route 66.

The western terminus of Route 66 is the end of the Santa Monica Pier, which I discussed in SIPS Volume 2 (watch to learn how it connects to Baalbek, Century City and Hollywood). The distance from the end of the pier, the official “end of the trail” of Route 66 to the Dome of the Tablets in Jerusalem is 6600 nautical miles.

Route 66 snakes its way from Chicago to LA, over 2000 miles, all the way. Highways are like rivers. I see Route 66 symbolizing the water of life flowing to the Pacific ocean.

With all the repeating 6’s in the measures of these New Jerusalems I should point out a few more. The distance from the Round Fountain in the Tuileries Gardens to the obelisk in La Place de la Concorde is 666 meters. It’s like the template in microcosm.

The Kaaba in Mecca is 666.6 nautical miles from the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. These are the official two most sacred spots in Islam and Judaism, respectively. Clearly these encoded distances transcend any one particular religious tradition. Perhaps there is something or someone deeper, patterning the world.

“Sacred Sites” from Quantification

Kevin McMahon posted this graphic on Facebook today. He also discovered that it is 777.7 miles from Grant Park Buckingham Fountain to the entrance of the IPG at a heading of 314° true north.

If you saw SIPS Volume 1, you might recall that Stonehenge has its station stones which describe a 5×12 rectangle.

from SIPS Volume 1

Stonehenge is also 33.33° from Solomon’s Temple.

Perhaps Stonehenge was the template for Jerusalem? Food for thought.

Asplund made the following connections. I call it the “Esoteric Metro”. All four sites are in an alignment and thus in a sense, they all resonate as New Jerusalems.

Some massive integration is going on lately. Here are two more stations in the esoteric metro. The two paths from Ellora and Carnac converging on the Freemason Emblem Building at the International Peace Garden meet at a 45° angle. The IPG is located at 100°3’33.33″W.

Did you know the highest concentration of lightning on Earth (20,000 strikes per night) occurs in a specific location? This happens over a spot called Aguas Muertas where the Catatumbo River empties into Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela.

So bright and reliable is the lightning that this location has been called the Maracaibo Lighthouse for hundreds of years.

The phenomenon is characterized by almost continuous lightning, mostly within the clouds, which is produced in a large vertical development of clouds that form electric arcs between 2 and 10 km in height (or more).

Wouldn’t it be amazing if people could harness that raw power? It might light up the planet in terms of providing for our electrical needs.

An average bolt of negative lightning carries an electric current of 30,000 amperes, and transfers 15 coulombs of electric charge and 500 megajoules of energy. Large bolts of lightning can carry up to 120,000 amperes and 350 coulombs of charge. –Source

Doing the math, I calculate that a single large bolt apparently provides the energy of 11,666,666,666 joules. 🙂

The Lighthouse of Maracaibo is 6666 miles from Heliopolis, which is in turn 3333 miles from the highest point on Earth. That is some serious Earthupuncture! It reminds me of moxybustion. The City of the Sun sure seems to be sited well for accumulating earth energy. It was built long before Jerusalem existed. In fact all that remains of Heliopolis above ground is this one granite needle.

The sacred geometry of Jerusalem (1728 cubits of 1.728 feet each) is encoded in our very units of measure, a secret in plain sight. One cubic foot = 1728 cubic inches.

The Earth’s diameter is 7920 miles. 7920 inches = 1 furlong. 17280 furlongs = 2160 miles. The Moon’s diameter is 2160 miles. We are living in the ‘heavenly’ New Jerusalem…

Serpent Wisdom

Serpent wisdom from the Bible, Genesis Chapter 3, King James version:

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked.

Note: They did not die. Instead, they learned something. Who told the truth and who lied?

Eve Offering The Apple To Adam In The Garden Of Eden And The Serpent by Lucas Cranach the Elder (c.1520)

The apple Eve passed to Adam represents knowledge, the basis of serpent wisdom. Steve Jobs well understood the power of one of these symbols.

Steve Jobs’ Apple designed by Jonathan Mak

He also knew the power of number. Here is the original advertisement for the computer that started Jobs’ trajectory from a kid in a garage to running the the largest company in the world by market capitalization at the end of his lifetime. The Apple-1 had a very interesting price point.

Apple-1 price point

Apple’s new Campus-2 corporate headquarters is under construction in Cupertino, California. It just happens to be 8604 km from Stonehenge (see center of image). I noticed the architectural plan’s resonance with a 7-pointed star and overlaid an alchemical diagram representing the process of turning lead, or in this case silicon, into gold. Apple’s stock just split 7-for-1.

Apple Campus 2’s sacred geometry

Another symbol from Genesis is one that photographer Richard Avedon capitalized on in 1981. Nastassja Kinski was emblazoned on many a teenager’s wall and imagination in the 80s, myself included.

I find that sixes and serpent wisdom go together quite often.

The distance from Serpent Mound, Ohio to the Louvre Pyramid is 6600.66 km (discovered by Asplund).

“The Egyptian creator deity, Cneph, was represented as a serpent with an egg thrusting from his mouth, similar to the Ohio Serpent Mound.” –Source

In SIPS Volume 1, I showed how the Louvre Pyramid deconstructs into a total of 666 rhombi, large and small.

“Why was the Great Pyramid called ‘House of the Serpent?’ Because, according to Bushby, ancient Egyptian priests maintained that, “a serpent lies coiled in the Great Pyramid.” –Source

I noticed that it is almost exactly the same distance again, 6600 km, from the tip of the Louvre Pyramid to the center of Connaught Place, at the top of the Indian capital’s pyramid. Lutyens’ Delhi is based on sextile geometry.

If you look at the site plan you see that New Delhi was built right next to a serpentine railroad and river. Sixes and snakes again.

New Delhi Site Plan

In Taking Measure I showed how there are some very interesting azimuths emanating from the center of the India Gate hexagon.

India Gate hexagon in New Delhi

Come to think of it, I have seen that rounded hexagon before: the mysterious hexagon with an edge length of 8640 miles on the north pole of Saturn.

NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI/Hampton University

I have seen another rounded hexagon in Canberra, the capital of Australia (and many more). City Hill is the site of Australian Capital Territory’s Legislative Assembly and Supreme Court.

City Hill Canberra

I compared Canberra and New Delhi in Taking Measure because their templates have many similarities. They both remind me of this famous crop circle, said to encode many mathematical concepts.

Barbury Castle Crop Circle from 1991

What I didn’t comment on in the book are the bodies of water. Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin is quite serpentine, don’t you think? It even has a protruding tongue! The water volume is reported as 33,000,000 cubic meters with a surface area of 6.6 square kilometers.

Jan Thulstrup discovered that the Parliamentary Triangle has a perimeter of 8640 m. 864 is a member of The Cosmic Sequence.

I noticed that Canberra’s “land axis” has a bearing of 216° true north. 216 = 6 x 6 x 6. Canberra’s serpent wisdom includes the relationship of 6/5 in the City Hill hexagon to the Russell defense pentacle.

Connecting the dots, the azimuth from Canberra’s Parliament House to New Delhi’s Connaught Place is 303.33° true north.

Following the trail of synchronicity, a Parisian with the last name Hapax messaged me and asked if I wanted photos he took at Cergy. I have read the late Philip Coppens’ eye-opening article on Cergy called Mitterand’s Great—Unknown—Work and so have been interested in Cergy since then. I wrote about Cergy in my 2011 post on 666.

Hapax photographed this unusual spiral platform on the shore of the lake he called the escargot. It doesn’t seem to serve any practical purpose. It has been said that the spiral snail shell is the specific sign of French freemasonry, called the cochlea, because it embodies the golden ratio.

Spiral platform on shore of lake at Cergy

However, the following plaque is mounted on the stone wall of this spiral platform. I think it is a “smoking gun.”

Plaque on spiral platform at Cergy, photo by HAPAX

Why would this tedious metrological information be posted unless the complex was consciously planned to encode something with measurements or occupy an important point on the Earth in relation to other sites? Why did the architects of Cergy post this plaque on site but offer no explanatory information as to why it is there? You can see that the “English” and “French” systems of measure are given equal importance in red and blue, respectively.

Some secrets in plain sight do not require human awareness to be created. That is certainly true in some cases like this one (from my previous post):

However, Cergy is a different story. There appears to be an elite that is aware of Earth measure and numerology. Speaking of, take a look at this speech by Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF. What do you make of her mention of the “lunar new year” and “the magic 7”? I’m not sure about the editor’s conclusions but there is no denying that numerology and astronomy are unusually important to this member of the global financial elite. She talks in riddles that only those with cochlea to hear will comprehend.

Take a look at my analysis of Cergy’s site plan. Look at how they managed to squeeze in a lake, separated from a serpentine river by a narrow border of land. The lake has two artificial islands, one in the form of a circular mound and the other a small stone pyramid.

Cergy-Pontoise, France

A line drawn from the altar stone of Stonehenge to the rondpoint of Notre Dame of Paris passes directly over the center of the officially titled, “Astronomical Island” in this city of hidden symbolism. See?

Signage at Cergy

The distance from Stonehenge to the Astronomical Island is 365242 meters, echoing the solar year of 365.242 days. The island is bare by the way, having just a few trees. No astronomical equipment. The bridge doesn’t even lead there.

Cergy vista – photo by HAPAX

Where that first measurement from Stonehenge leaves off, the next one begins. The distance from the Astronomical Island to the rondpoint of Notre Dame is 30303 meters.

This next one is also a mind-blower: I measured the distance from the Astronomical Island at Cergy to Parliament House in Canberra and it is 55,555,555 feet or 666,666,666 inches. My hunch is that the Astronomical Island is an origin point for geodetic measurements.

Speaking of origins, the pyramid in the lake is related to the Egyptian creation myth of Atum. He arose on a mound that emerged from the primeval waters. He later lived in or became a pyramid that also emerged from the waters. The myth fits the artificial reality of Cergy.

I have a theory that 6 represents Osiris, as Osiris is the oldest root of this tree: Osiris, Cronus, Saturn, Chronos, and most recently Father Time.

Europe’s largest clock is at the terminus of Cergy’s minor axis.

Cergy’s Clock is the largest in Europe

Cergy’s official information brochure states the following about this clock:

“Réalisée par l’horloger Huchez, la double horloge de 10 mètres de diamètre (333 fois plus grande qu’une montre-bracelet ordinaire!), qui évoque les gares du début du siècle, est la plus grande d’Europe.”

Google translates this into English as follows:

“Made by the watchmaker Huchez, double clock 10 meters in diameter (333 times greater than ordinary wristwatch!), Which evokes the stations of the early century, is the largest in Europe.”

Ever wonder who Notre Dame or “our lady” really is? This sculpture at the entrance of Notre Dame might give us a hint.

Could she be serpent wisdom? The divine feminine creative power is called kundalini shakti in Delhi.

“In any discussion of serpent wisdom we cannot fail to also mention the ancient Hindu Kundalini practice. Kundalini means simply “coiled serpent” and in the Indian system the ida and pingala energy (through serpent channels) are raised up and down the spine to raise the consciousness of the adept.” –Philip Gardiner

Correspondingly, a serpent climbing a rod is the ancient and modern symbol of medicine.

The Star of Life is the symbol of medicine

“Pythagoras” and “Pythia” are words related to pythons. Their consciousnesses were clearly elevated.

Funny how Delphi and Delhi are such similar words as well, perhaps that is just a coincidence if there even is such a thing.

Pythia, or Priestess of the Oracle of Delphi by John Collier (1891)

The name Cergy is also a clue. Coppens pointed out that “Cergy” is the mirror of “Y grec,” which is how the French call the letter Y. It works sort of like this:

“Y grec” or “Greek Y” is also known as the Pythagorean Y that I discussed in SIPS Volume 1. The Y is like the forked tongue of a serpent. It symbolizes the choice we all have to do evil or live, another mirror-choice.

We have inherited the culture of those who wanted to control us. Tradition told us that serpent wisdom is evil and there is something wrong with gaining knowledge ourselves. It is time to see this clearly for what it is and make a new, and hopefully rational, choice.

Why is the Astronomical Island called that? I wonder if it might refer to Ophiucus, the serpent bearer. This 13th sign of the zodiac was suppressed when the solar cult gained dominance.

Kepler’s depiction of Ophiucus

Compare Ophiucus with Lilith who was reborn in the 80s in the form of Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent:

Lilith by John Collier (1892)

The Hebrew term Lilith is translated variously as “night creature”, “night monster”, “night hag”, or “screech owl” and is identified as a female demon. In Jewish folklore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife, whom God created at the same time as Adam. The literal First Lady as it were.

This contrasts with his second wife Eve, who was created from one of Adam’s ribs, a subservient role. The lunar serpent wisdom was suppressed and twisted by a misogynist patriarchy who sought to eclipse the old ways with a Sun/Son cult. I wonder if Ophiucus was really Lilith but it’s been so long that we have largely lost the plot?

I published this image in Quantification

“Thirteen Moons”

…and this is an excerpt from my write up about the image:

We reach sexual maturity around 13 years of age and women have on average 13 menstrual (or Moon) cycles a year. Human biology therefore harmonizes with a 13 month calendar so our 12 month calendar keeps us off balance. The suppression of the feminine is correlated with the solar calendar and a cultural fear of the number 13, called triskaidekaphobia. This phobia manifests in the common architectural practice of skipping the 13th floor in multi-level buildings, the irrational fear of Friday the 13th, and the fact that 13 witches are said to make a coven. I say bring back the 13 moon calendar and restore balance to the force!

We seem to do a lot of things backwards such as celebrating New Year’s in the dead of winter and marking off a new day in the middle of the night.

The major axis of Cergy points not to central Paris but to a site on the outskirts called Project Balard. In fact Cergy points directly to what has been called, “The French Pentagon” because it is the new 1.08 billion Euro armed forces headquarters. The French Army, Navy and Air Force will all be led from a “pentagon” that is actually a hexagon. 5 and 6 all over again.

The French Pentagon is actually a Hexagon

“The idea of a central hexagon that would point out in six different directions to form small islands of buildings…came to me at the end,” said its architect Nicolas Michelin.

The design of Project Balard is especially resonant with the shape of France which has long been compared to a hexagon. I made this graphic:

“L’hexagone”

The woman on the flag of the French Republic is none other than Isis/Lilith, her spine aglow with serpent wisdom. How you see the goddess of nature is a choice that is up to you.

Deep Challenges

My research presents you with a series of challenges to your world-view. With discoveries like the 3333 mile distance between the ruins of Heliopolis and Mount Everest, you see either: (a) meaningless coincidence that you can immediately dismiss or (b) evidence of an advanced geodetic and metrological knowledge that is out of place with everything we know about ancient culture, or (c) something else. If you choose explanation (b), how do you reconcile it?

Urban Asplund emailed me with the data that the distance from Giza to Mount Kilimanjaro is 33.33°. I verified this fact in Google Earth, and I recommend you do this also with all of the distances and alignments I mention so you can see for yourself. Repeatability is what makes this science rather than superstition. Hopefully you will appreciate the research rationally and perhaps even be enticed to start your own.

The quoted distance isn’t to the summit, but to the side of the mountain. Still, it is accurate to say that the distance between Giza and Mount Kilimanjaro is 33.33°.

I discovered some time ago that the distance from Stonehenge to Solomon’s Temple is the same 33.33° distance. Of course Solomon’s Temple is long gone, but all three Abrahamic religions tend to agree that it was somewhere on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and it falls entirely within that quoted distance.

The Great Pyramid of Giza encodes 3333 inches inside it. This is evident if you simply inscribe an equilateral triangle within its elevation. So the fascination with Threes goes back at least to ancient Egypt.

“Eye of Horus” from Quantification

However, this challenges our understanding of the so-called “English” system of measurement. Even if you take explanation (a) and reject this as a coincidence, isn’t it odd that St. Paul’s Cathedral is 555.5′ or 6666″ long or that the Washington Monument is 555.5′ or 6666″ high? These coincidences keep piling up quite inconveniently for world-view (a).

So if you are going with explanation (b), then it seems unavoidably like the ancient Egyptians were using inches, feet, and miles. However, the Great Pyramid also encodes 10π in meters…

“Ten Pies” from Quantification

…and even encodes the speed of light using the system of degrees/minutes/seconds and the metric system.

Detail of “The Meter” from Quantification

Asplund made this connection and I made the graphic:

“Mountains of Light”

The Louvre Pyramid is 481 km from the summit of Mont Blanc and Mont Blanc’s summit is 4810m above sea level. Mont Blanc is the highest summit in Europe. The Great Pyramid was 481 feet high when it was built and covered in gleaming polished Tura limestone casing stones, with joints so accurate they were practically invisible. The glass pyramid, the white mountain, and the gleaming pyramid all are expressions of the transmission or reflection of light. The numbers synchronize but they are a mismatch of kilometers, meters, and feet.

Egyptologists would call all of this utterly preposterous and I agree with them to the extent that it doesn’t make any sense from world-view (b). I can’t reconcile this out-of-place knowledge with what we know about ancient cultures so my world-view is necessarily (c), something else.

Consider the following facts. Heliopolis, the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Lighthouse of Virginia are all in an alignment. The distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria, also known as PARia-ISis (see Talisman by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval) to the Eiffel Tower in PARIS is 3033.33 km.

“Resonators”

Asplund discovered that the distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria to the alignments of menhirs at Carnac is 3333.33 km. The distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria to the Eiffel Tower is precisely 3033.33 km.

The distance from the tip of Eiffel Tower to the center of Sagrada Familia is exactly e million feet. The circumference of the Sun is e million miles (99.99%). Euler’s constant e is one of the most important numbers in mathematics.

“Mil e On”

All these resonators needling the Earth remind me of acupuncture and needling the human body. If they are doing that on the macro scale then they are doing it along great circles and encoding very precise distances.

The replica lighthouse in Alexandria, Virginia (give me a break) is 333 feet in height. Scottish rite freemasons seem to be in on all of this with 32, the highest degree one earns, and the 33° being by invitation only.

Lighthouse of Alexandria, Virginia aka George Washington National Masonic Memorial (333′ height)

However, the Sun disc has an angular size that varies between 32 and 33 seconds of arc. This seems to be beyond conspiracy, unless the conspiracy includes the division of a circle into 360°, which goes back at least to ancient Babylon, which admittedly is located at 32°32’32″N. Don’t forget Homeland Security’s Babylonian Ziggurat in southern California located at 33°33’33″N where I learned to drive. Right. See Memorabilia.

I do not work for Homeland Security, the CIA, FBI, NSA, KGB, or the DMV. In fact I was kind of hoping you might donate or buy some of my books, videos or T-shirts to help me continue my research.

OK, here are a few more challenges. A line from the deepest part of the ocean, literally known as Challenger Deep, to Mount Everest continues to Abu Simbel, Egypt. Abu Simbel is the site of some exquisite rock-cut temples that remind me of Ellora. This is the “small temple”:

Ad Meskens CC BY-SA 3.0

The distance from Abu Simbel to Everest is 3456 miles. 3456 is a term in what I call The Cosmic Sequence.

It appears to me like the ancient Egyptians somehow had global knowledge to line this up so beautifully. Maybe the following is really what is going on, who knows?

Here is another challenge from the deep:

The line from Everest to Challenger Deep continues on the other side of the planet to Easter Island. Furthermore it measures 6066 km from Everest to Challenger Deep and 6666 nautical miles from the deepest part of the ocean to Easter Island. It is 6660.6 km from Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the ocean, to Mauna Loa which is actually the world’s tallest mountain if measured from the sea floor.

I am talking about the structure of the Earth, not some crypto-Egypto conspiracy involving Satan, the Anunnaki and/or the Illuminati.

On the flipside, the distance from Easter Island to Heliopolis is 16180 km. Phi, the golden ratio is 1.6180…

Incidentally, the Nazca Lines are on this great circle and the distance from the famous Hummingbird geoglyph to the Great Pyramid is precisely 111.11°.

Asplund mentioned that he wanted to see how wide the Mediterranean was and so he measured it. It is 33.33° from Gibraltar to Beirut. That just about dimensions it perfectly, don’t you think?

In the same spirit I measured the distance between Hawaii and the mainland. Like Easter Island, Hawaii is one of the most isolated places on Earth. Just how isolated you ask? The shortest landfall is 33.0° from the Big Island to Point Arena, California.

The last challenge is one Asplund posed to me and I added to. He found that the breadth and depth of Africa is 66.6° by 66.6°. I added the 66.6° angle between the north pole and the ecliptic to complete the highly improbable but factual picture of our planet. I almost forgot: spaceship Earth orbits at an average speed of 66600 miles/hour (99.9%).

While I was putting together this image last night, which was actually the first in my newfound green globe style, I was listening to music. iTunes reports that I have 51 GB of audio adding up to a whopping play time of 52:17:29:12 of listening pleasure.

Which long forgotten song or ancient melody do you suppose should happen to “randomly” play while I am comparing my image of Africa with the one earlier in this post on Kilimanjaro?

I’m sure there is no other song in my library or maybe even in the world having the words Africa and Kilimanjaro as lyrics. At least the gods have a sense of humor. I feel this play is supposed to be a comedy rather than a tragedy and we have all somehow lost the plot. Here is to meeting deep challenges with a sense of humor!

Speaking of, my architect friend Christian emailed me this image yesterday. Maybe this is what all those obelisks, lighthouses and menhirs are ultimately about after all.
