I’ve added a new video episode on London (10 min) at SecretsInPlainSight.com. When I was studying Gothic cathedrals for the Chartres episode I was meditating on the connections between the Templars and St. Bernard de Clairvaux, who not only founded the Templar order, but was also the architect of the Cistercian order which greatly influenced the building of Gothic Cathedrals all over Europe in the 300 years following St. Bernard’s death. Following a hunch I drew a line from Bourges cathedral (which is about 100 miles away from Chartres) to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland (said to be founded by the Templars).
In this video series I’ve uncovered a great deal by following hunches and drawing literal connections (as paths in Google Earth) between structures and holy places. This most recent line doesn’t prove to be any exception because it passes directly over the headquarters of Freemasonry in the UK, Wales, and much of the former British Empire in the City of London: the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).
UGLE is less than a mile from the Temple, the former Templar compound which was taken over by the Inns of Court after the Templars were raided on Friday the 13th, October 1307. The Temple contains Temple Church, the famous round church built by the Templars that was featured in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code book and movie (shootout amidst effigies of medieval knights). Researcher John Smout’s analysis of the architectural floor plan of Temple Church reveals it was design Ad Quadtratum et Ad Triangulum, just like Chartres Cathedral. I see the three cubes in the design linking Temple Church with the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Alexandria Virginia.
Looking at London’s urban fabric I trace the axis of Temple Church through St. Paul’s cathedral (redesigned by Sir Christopher Wren) to the Bank of England which was chartered during the construction of St. Paul’s. Directly below the Bank of England is street pyramid (truncated just like the Great Pyramid and the pyramids in the streets of DC and on the US $1 bill). The Bank is at the top just as is the House of the Temple in Washington DC.
Considering the many connections between the Bank of England, Temple Church (which was itself a depository bank and residence of kings and papal representatives), and St. Paul’s cathedral I show that the signs and symbols point back to the Vatican as where the real power lies. The London Stone is in the base of London’s street pyramid, the rock from which all distances in the UK were measured during the Roman occupation of England.
St. Paul’s itself proves to be part of the global interconnected mystery as its dimensions of 555′ encode the 6/5 relationship between macrocosm and microcosm (as 6660″=555′ matching the height of the Washington Monument). In addition the height of St. Paul’s is the solar 365′, matching the height of the Sun Tower at Chartres Cathedral.
I trace the axis in front of Buckingham Palace to Temple Bar, which once featured a gate designed by Christopher Wren. The significance of this alignment is not to be underestimated. I uncover some little-known legal facts regarding the Lord Mayor of London and the monarch’s relationship to the City of London that will have you pondering who is really in charge of the wealthiest square mile on Earth.
