Geomantic Triangles

An Ancient Triangle

Livio Stecchini (1913-1979) was a pioneer in ancient metrology who influenced later writers such as Robert Temple, Peter Tompkins, John Michell, and John Neal in cracking the ancient system of weights and measures and understanding the incredible intelligence of ancient people.

Stecchini discovered a triangle connecting the oracle center of Dodona in Greece with Mt. Ararat in Turkey and Thebes in Egypt (where the Temples of Karnak and Luxor are located).

Omphalos Triangle

Stecchini suggested that certain ancient oracle centres were placed according to geodetic principles at which ‘Omphalus’ or ‘Navel stones’ were placed…The mountain above Dodona is the location where Deucalion landed after the great flood. -Source

Using the ruler tool in Google Earth I verified that both the Thebes-Dodona and Ararat-Thebes distances are exactly equal at 1170 miles. The distance along the other leg of the triangle is slightly larger at 1242 miles.

Deucalion is parallel to the Biblical Noah and to the Sumerian Utnapishtim, all mythological survivors of the great flood.



You probably are aware of the fact that Noah landed his ark on top of Mt. Ararat.

Stecchini has this to say about Thebes:

Egyptologists have vainly tried to explain why the Greeks gave the name of Thebai to the city called Wast by the Egyptians; the explanation is provided by the Hebrew word thibbun meaning “navel”.

There you have it, three omphali or “navels” forming a near perfect equilateral triangle. See my post on Omphale. The fact that Dodona and Ararat are equidistant from Thebes should tell you something. The pre-flood civilization seeded all the historical cultures on earth. Those that survived created omphali to mark important geomantic spots that come down to us from our oldest myths.

I think geomancy was an Atlantean art.

Sevenths of Latitude

To the best of my knowledge Stecchini was the first person in historical times to discover that Thebes is located precisely at a latitude equal to 2/7 x 90 (25°42’51″N).

In other worlds the ancients took the northern hemisphere and divided it into 7 parts from equator to pole. Then they placed oracle centers at each node.

I think the 1/7th point (12°51’25″N) corresponds to Aden, an ancient city at the tip of the Arabian peninsula. Aden was in the news on 12 Oct 2000 when the USS Cole was attacked while at anchor there.


A local legend in Yemen states that Aden may be as old as human history itself. Some also believe that Cain and Abel are buried somewhere in the city. -Source

Thebes is precisely located at the 2/7th point or 25°42’51″N:


Delphi is very close to the 3/7th point at 38°34’17″N:


Avebury is a bullseye precisely at the 4/7th point of 51°25’43″N. Avebury is at least 4600 years old, probably much older.


I think Thingvellir Iceland is the 5/7th point at 64°17’09″N where the Althing met in ancient times:


“A rock beside its deepest fissure became the lawspeaker’s rostrum. In all old religions, such places are sacred to the powers of the earth that are concentrated there. As a magical center and place of 12-tribe assembly. Thingvellir is comparable to Delphi.” -from Twelve Tribe Nations by Michell and Rhone


W.G. Collingwood’s painting of The Law Rock in Thingvellir

There is no 6/7th point because it is in the Arctic ocean.

The Bermuda Triangle

Many aircraft and ships have disappeared, experienced missing time/dislocations in space, or seen extraterrestrial or extradimensional craft when entering the Bermuda Triangle. I’ve found some very interesting symbolism at these three points that precisely define the Bermuda Triangle:


The Bermuda Triangle

Using the ruler tool in Google Earth I verified that both the distance from the Cenotaph in Hamilton Bermuda to the Flagler Monument Obelisk in Florida and the distance from the Flagler Obelisk to Third Millennium Park in Puerto Rico are exactly the same at 1027 miles. The distance along the other leg of the triangle is slightly less at 952 miles.

The Cenotaph in Hamilton Bermuda

Bermuda is an offshore financial capital having the highest GDP per capita because of the low direct taxation on personal and corporate income, similar in that regard to the Cayman Islands which is another offshore financial capital and territory of the UK.

The Cenotaph in front of the Cabinet Building in Hamilton Bermuda is used in the ritual marking the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when Remembrance Day is celebrated every year, just like all the cenotaphs do in Commonwealth countries and the Shrine of Remembrance does in Melbourne Australia. See my post on Repeating Ones for more info on this fascinating subject.

Flagler Monument Island, Florida USA

A 110′ high obelisk and island in the shape of a compass rose were built in 1920 to honor Henry Flagler, an American tycoon, real estate promoter, railroad developer and partner of John D. Rockefeller in Standard Oil.

Google Rockefeller and Illuminati if you want to go down a very deep dark rabbit hole.

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” -David Rockefeller’s Memoirs page 405

Flagler island monument 1922

Flagler Monument Island

Four monumental sculptures sit facing the four cardinal directions at the base of the obelisk. The scultptures are literally falling apart some 91 years after the monument was built. The island is no longer round or devoid of vegetation as it was in the above photo. However the obelisk and island are still there.

The 110′ obelisk reminds me of the 110 floors of the WTC in NYC, the Grande Arche’s 110m height at the end of the Axe Historique in Paris, and the Millennium Tower’s 110m height in Portsmouth UK. See my Repeating Ones post and The Snowflake and the Flower posts.

The Millennium Tower, Dome, Wheel and now Park are all encoded Illuminati symbols.

Third Millennium Park, Puerto Rico

Third Millennium Park is on the Isleta de San Juan, less than 1 mile from the Capitol Building of Puerto Rico. I’m using the sculpture of three metal spires [I don’t know its official name] representing the third millennium as the geodetic marker to define the Bermuda triangle. Remember this point and the Cenotaph in Bermuda are equidistant from the Flagler obelisk.

Puerto Rico is a territory of the US, just as Bermuda is a territory of the UK and Flagler island is a sort of territory of Miami. They frame the very strange territory of the Devil’s Triangle as it is also known.


There was a “Monument to the Third Millennium” design competition in 2000 for this site of which the following was one provocative entry:

Portal Beacon Monument Puerto Rico

Design by Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture

The Portal Beacon Monument as the above design was titled featured a 100′ high structure that looks to me like a portal beckoning craft from the stargate within the Bermuda Triangle to fly through the TV screen-like frame (in or out I can’t say). This might not have been the designer’s intention, but it got me thinking as good design should.

A different applicant won the “Monument to the Third Millennium” competition but then the project was abruptly cancelled and remains unbuilt. If this design had been 110′ high, would have been a go, or was the design too obvious a stargate? Compare it with the Grande Arche in Paris, the Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas, or Hart Plaza in Detroit for more architectural and sculptural stargates.

You can see the sculpture of three metal spires surrounded by a circle which is divided into 12 parts on the right in the above image. Does it symbolize another Amphictyonic League, calendar, or zodiac?

The Illuminati Game

The Illuminati card game was first made by Steve Jackson Games way back in 1982.

The players take the role of Illuminati societies that struggle to take over the world. The game has ominous secret societies competing with each other to control the world through sinister means, including legal, illegal, and even mystical. The Pocket Box edition depicted six Illuminati groups: The Bavarian Illuminati, The Discordian Society, The UFOs, The Servants of Cthulhu, The Bermuda Triangle, and The Gnomes of Zürich.


I find it fascinating that The Bermuda Triangle is one of the Illuminati groups one can play in this game.

Some say Illuminati is more than a game but a smoking gun, but you must weigh the evidence yourself to decide.

Twelve Tribe Nations

In the most ancient times nations divided themselves into twelve tribes:

“All over the world in countries as far apart as China, Ireland, Iceland, and Madagascar are records and traditions of whole nations and their territories being divided into twelve tribes and twelve regions, each tribe and its sector of land corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac and to one of the twelve months in the year.” -Twelve Tribe Nations: Sacred Number and the Golden Age by John Michell and Christine Rhone

Mirroring the 12-part division of stars on the ground flows from the ancient Hermetic wisdom:

As Above So Below

Ancient Greece

In the archaic period of Greece tribes formed a series of Amphictyonic (ἀμφικτυονία) Leagues meaning a “league of nations.” Examples include the Delian League, the Delphic League, and the Ionian League each of which formed what is called a Dodecapolis, or confederation of twelve settlements.

The Twelve Olympians probably arose from a Dodecapolis.

Every twelve-part division of land had a center point and this center was traditionally marked with a stone. Here is the omphalos stone from Delphi. It was originally topped by two golden eagles because Zeus sent out two eagles to fly across the world to meet at its center, the “navel” of the world.

On a side note, just as the Ancient Olympics were revived in Athens in 1896, a “League of Nations” was revived after World War 1.


The League of Nations was the precursor to the United Nations.

A Modern World Omphalos

The Millennium Dome (also known as the O2 Arena) will be a major venue in the London 2012 Olympics. The structure’s twelve masts correspond to the signs of the zodiac and the twelve months in the year. The dome’s diameter of 365m corresponds to the number of days in a year and its 52m height corresponds to the number of weeks in a year.

The center of the Millennium Dome’s is very close to being on the Prime Meridian but is not quite on the line. The exact longitude of this modern world omphalos is 0°0′11.22″E

The numerology of the longitude is as follows: 11 + (11 + 11) = 33. See my posts on Repeating Ones and 33.

Billions of people will focus their psychic energy on this spot next summer.

The official logo of the 2012 Olympics is an example of a subliminal secret in plain sight that your your left brain is probably unaware of (top) but your right brain understands subconsciously (bottom):

2012 Zion

Iran has threatened to boycott the London 2012 Olympics unless the organisers replace the official logo, which Tehran claims spells out the word “Zion”. -Source

The Isle of Dogs

The Millennium Dome is on the Isle of Dogs, which has been a peninsula for hundreds of years. Sirius is known as the dog star because it is in the constellation Canis Major. The goddess Artemis is often depicted with a dog. Artemis is a Greek version of Isis, which makes sense because Sirius is the star of Isis.

Sirius Sattelite Radio uses a dog with a star for its eye as its symbolic logo recalling Isis to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

The French writer Jean Richer identified the oldest Amphictyonic League in Sardis, Lydia which is in today’s western Turkey.

When you hear the terms the Near East, the Middle East, the Far East, the West, the South, and the North where do you suppose the origin point of all these directions is? Nothing I’ve read has ever answered this question and it has bothered me since first taking history courses in college.

Sardis is the omphalos. The ancient navel of the world.


The word omphalos is etymologically connected to Queen Omphale, mythological ruler of Lydia.

Hercules and Omphale 1754

Hercules and Omphale (detail) by Tischbein, Johann Heinrich, der Ältere (1754)

Incidentally I’m not sure if it was Tischbein’s intent but one exposed breast is symbolic of Isis.

In Queen Omphale’s best-known myth, she is the master of the hero Heracles during a year of required servitude, a scenario that offered writers and artists opportunities to explore gender roles and erotic themes.

Paris – Sardis

Drawing a path from Sardis to I.M. Pei’s Louvre Pyramid we see that the axis bisects the Louvre and is aligned perfectly with the entrance to the world’s most visited museum.

The Louvre Museum has 555,000 sq ft in the palace complex devoted to public exhibition. -Source


This is especially amazing because the Louvre Palace you see today was started in the 16th century and added to by almost every subsequent French monarch. The alignment goes right over the center of the Sun King’s Cour Carrée (Square Court) addition he created before moving to Versailles.

The path from Sardis to the Louvre Pyramid passes directly over the tip of the July Column in the Place de la Bastille. The golden boy atop the July Column is the Greek Hermes, author of the motto “As Above, So Below” in his earlier incarnation as the Egyptian Thoth.


The path from Sardis goes to Paris along the direction of Virgo as identified by John Michell and Christine Rhone in Twelve Tribe Nations. The first sign of the zodiac (Aries) is aligned toward the rising sun in the east.



It is interesting that the path is in the Virgo (Isis) direction because of what Paris is all about (see my Paris episodes). Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval show in their book Talisman how the word Paris comes from Pharia-Isis. Pharia or Pharos in Greek is the location of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, a center of Isis worship in the the ancient Mediterranean.

The Notre Dame (English: Our Lady) cathedral was very likely built over a Druidic Temple of Isis.

The historical axis is offset 6 degrees from the axis running through Pei’s pyramids (both upward and downward pointing) through the July Column all the way to the ancient omphalos at Sardis.

If you watched my Paris videos you’ll recall that this 6 degree bend matches the Temple of Luxor’s bend whose very obelisk is at the center of the 86,400 square meter Place de la Concorde.

Also consider the fact that the Champs-Élysées (the historical axis of Paris) is aligned to the heliacal rising of Sirius, the phenomenon the ancient Egyptians based their calendar on.

The Champs-Élysées or “La plus belle avenue du monde” as it is known in French is one of the most beautiful streets in the world with rents as high as US$1.2 million a year for 1,000 square feet of space. -Source

The name Champs-Élysées is French for Elysian Fields, the place of the blessed dead in Greek mythology. The Elysian Fields are related to the Eleusinian Mysteries which, of all the mysteries celebrated in ancient times, were held to be the ones of greatest importance.

The participants in these mysteries drank a mixture called Kykeon made mainly of water, barley and “naturally occurring substances” that some scholars believe were entheogens.


Dimethyltryptamine, see my Snowflake and the Flower post

For almost 3000 years people “consistently experienced revelatory states during the culminating ceremony of the Eleusinian Mysteries.” -Source


Phryne at the Poseidonia in Eleusis by Siemiradzki

But where does this naturally occurring substance come from?

The most likely candidate for the DMT containing plant, of which there are many in nature, would be a species of Acacia. -Metzner, Ralph. “The Reunification of the Sacred and the natural”. Eleusis Volume VIII, 1997. pp. 3-13

That’s a hell of a secret in plain sight I’d say (pardon the pun, the mysteries are about helping Demeter find her daughter Persephone in Hades).

According to Diodorus Siculus, the Cretans professed that they received the ‘mysteries’ from the Egyptians, and that they passed them on to the Greeks. Eleusia (Eleusis) was the home of the earth-mother Demeter, but she has older origins that can be seen in the Egyptian mythologies…the mysteries of Isis were the same as those of Demeter and that the mysteries of Osiris were the same as Dionysus. -Source

Acacia in the Osiris Myth

Osiris was tricked by his jealous brother Set, cut into 14 pieces, sealed in a chest and sent down the Nile. The sea carried the chest to Byblos where it lodged in an acacia tree. The tree grew around the chest encasing it and the remains of the god Osiris were preserved inside.


Image courtesy Stan Shebs under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license.

The King of Byblos cut down the tree and turned it into a column in his palace. When Isis learned of the fate of her brother-husband she set out in search of his body. When Isis identified where Osiris was she worked in the king’s court nursing his children. After a time she received the column as her pay. In the tree trunk was the body of Osiris which she magically reassembled and sang back to life with a song.

Resurrection is at the heart of the Eleusinian Mysteries and perhaps is the hope of those who find themselves in the Elysian Fields.

What really went on in the mysteries was kept a secret for almost 3000 years and is now lost to the sands of time. The mysteries were suppressed and the pagan shrines desecrated when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire in the 4th century AD.

Perhaps it is high time we bring them back?

If you watched my New York Part 1 video, you might remember how I was led by the linear element within the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir to the Temple of Isis (originally from Dendur Egypt) within the Met.

Met obelisk path

After watching my NY videos Grant Chamberlin sent me a few photos he took within Central Park. Here’s one of the Gate Houses on the reservoir. Note the year on the building is 1864. See my 864 post to get the universe’s little joke, but I digress.


Image courtesy Grant Chamberlin

The line running through the reservoir leads directly to UN headquarters:

Met UN

In the NY Part 2 video I analyzed the mural inside the UN Security Council chamber. I’d like to draw your attention to the phoenix at the center of this highly symbolic mural.

Phoenix mural

The UN flag has an earth divided into 33 sectors, the number of the highest degree in Scottish freemasonry. Here’s my post on 33.


The Coat of Arms for the state of Israel is also cyan in color. It features 13 leaves on each branch with the menorah at the top of a step pyramid of sorts.


There is an amazing correlation between the menorah, the freemasons, and the days of the week that youtube user bobzimmerfan pointed out:

Order Days

Watch his video to see how he came to this startling conclusion:

On the subject of globalization there was a article published in the Economist way back in 1988 extolling the virtues of a one world currency called The Phoenix, whose symbol appears to be a circle with a line drawn through it.

Due to the law of free will they have to put their game plan in plain sight in order to obtain your consent.

“The maxim is “Qui tacet consentire”: the maxim of the law is “Silence gives consent”. If therefore you wish to construe what my silence betokened, you must construe that I consented.”—Thomas More


Title of article: Get Ready for the Phoenix; Source: Economist; 01/9/88, Vol. 306, pp 9-10

Here is a quote from this article:

The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments.  There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy.  The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF…Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.

Notice the Fleur de lys on the phoenix’s head in the above cover image?

The second chapter of the Song of Solomon, the most important of ancient Kabbalistic texts, begins with, “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” Originally, the fleur-de lis was a common Jewish symbol. Not only are lilies frequently mentioned in the Songs of David, but early Jewish coinage also featured similar lilies. The great Kabbalistic book, the Zohar, begins with an exposition of the mystical significance of the lily, which it describes as being the symbol of the “Jewish congregation.” Source

The NWO plans for a one world currency and ultimate one world government are absolutely chilling in my humble opinion. Would you rather be controlled by the all seeing eye at the top of the tower/pyramid…

Eye of sauron

…or move toward decentralization with local communities governing themselves, printing their own non-debt based currencies, creating their own non-fractional reserve banks, growing most of their own food, creating their own renewable energy, and staying interconnected to the larger world through the Internet? The path to preserve our humanity, our uniqueness, and the diversity of culture is clear: it opposes the globalists’ agenda of control.

What kind of a world do you want to live in? Be mindful of what you consent to before it is too late.

The original House of the Phoenix was located in Heliopolis Egypt. Philip Coppens wrote a great article about this entitled Heliopolis: Egypt’s Radiance.

Cleopatra’s Needle just outside the Met originally came from Heliopolis.

Now that I’ve set the stage you will better appreciate the following geomancy.

Manhattan Geomancy

I’ve often wondered why Cleopatra’s needle is where it is just outside the Met. This alignment explains it:


Cort Lindahl originally drew a line from Cleopatra’s needle to the Museum of Jewish Heritage and noticed that the orientation of the museum aligns with the axis. I took a close look at this line and am detailing the items along the line connecting the dots.

The line starts at Cleopatra’s needle:


Incidentally in my New York Part 1 video, I mention how the glass atrium in the Met looks like a Templar flag. I was amazed but not too surprised when Grant sent me a photo of what this atrium looks like from the ground: a pyramid.


Image courtesy Grant Chamberlin

The path passes directly over the Grand Masonic Lodge of NY at 71 W 23rd Street. I notice it bisects the garden of the Caroline building across the street (not sure of the significance?)


The path also goes over Rockefeller Center, and directly over the fountain in Bryant Park, the most densely occupied urban park in the world, which was restored by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The park was originally called Reservoir Square because it fronted the Croton Distributing Reservoir which fed what is now called the Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis Reservoir in Central Park.


The line passes right in front of the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, currently the second tallest building in Manhattan. This US$1 billion solar monument is 365m tall (1200 feet) with a spire measuring 77m atop a building housing 55 stories (it’s got that repetitive digit thing too). It’s one of the “greenest” buildings in the world (recalling the green-skinned Osiris perhaps).


The alignment passes right in front of the One World Trade Center building which is currently under construction. Notice how the building is oriented parallel to this alignment. Cort Lindahl noticed this first and was also amazed.

Freedom Tower

The Freedom Tower as it is also known will be the tallest building in the US at 1776 feet when completed in 2013. July 4th, 1776 is of course date the Declaration of Independence was signed, which also “happens” to be Aphelion, the day the Sun is farthest away from us.

The building’s form is two obelisks meeting as above, so below on top of a cube. The floor plan at the midpoint of the shaft is an octagram star (solar symbol).

Errata: I mistakenly said the Bavarian Illuminati was formed on July 4th, 1776 in my Red Ice interview, but this actually happened on May 1st, 1776 (Beltane fire festival).

By the way the US constitution was ratified on June 21, 1788 which “happens” to be summer solstice. But I digress.

The alignment terminates directly in the center of the Museum of Jewish Heritage at 36 Battery Place at the tip of Manhattan. Freemasons are steeped in the Kabbalah and obsessed with ancient Egypt.


The Core Exhibition is housed in a remarkable six-sided building —symbolic of the six points of the Star of David and the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

The Museum of Jewish Heritage building is a step pyramid…

Chet Holifield Federal Building

The above Chet Holifield Federal Building was designed by William Pereira, the same architect who designed the Transamerica Pyramid. The Ziggurat’s primary tenants are the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue Service.


Thinking about all the phoenixes I’d been discovering in Manhattan I drew a line from the Museum of Jewish Heritage to City Hall in Phoenix Arizona and another from the Museum of Jewish Heritage to the oldest standing obelisk in the world in Heliopolis Egypt (where the House of the Phoenix once stood).

I discovered these paths align beautifully with the hexagonal structure as shown:


A patent for the city was issued in 1874 by President Ulysses S. Grant, and in 1881 it was incorporated as the City of Phoenix.

“After the USA civil war, once General and then President Ulysses S. Grant, a 33rd degree Freemason, wanted to move the Capital of the USA to Phoenix, Arizona” -Source

Phoenix Arizona sprawls over 33°N. The Phoenix metropolitan area is called the Valley of the Sun. Heliopolis means City of the Sun.

San Francisco

San Francisco is said to have risen from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fire:

Flag of San Francisco

That’s right, the flag on top of SF City Hall depicts another firebird.

If you watched my San Francisco episode you will recall the Ennead I discovered there with the Transamerica Pyramid on the vertex corresponding to Osiris; Columbus Ave and the street grid form two of the edges and Treasure Island in the Bay forms another edge (the creator god Atum points true north of course):

Ennead SF

The Ennead (Greek ἐννεάς, meaning a collection of nine things) was a group of nine deities in Egyptian mythology. The Ennead were worshipped at Heliopolis and consisted of the god Atum, his children Shu and Tefnut, their children Geb and Nut and their children Osiris, Isis, Set and Nephthys.

The Ennead were worshipped for more than 3000 years, making them the longest lived theology in human history. And it seems that there is an elite still worshipping these gods today.

I highly recommend tuning into Henrik Palmgren’s Series on Zionism and Multiculturalism on Red Ice Radio.

I want to make it clear that I am not against any groups of people no matter their faith, membership in secret societies, ethnicity, or any other categories you care to assign. I’m pointing out connections and leave it to you, dear reader, to draw your own conclusions. I urge you to keep an open mind and use your own power of discernment to navigate the flood of information that keeps pouring in.

In the words of Depeche Mode:

People are people so why should it be

You and I should get along so awfully

So we’re different colours

And we’re different creeds

And different people have different needs

It’s obvious you hate me

Though I’ve done nothing wrong

I never even met you

So what could I have done

I can’t understand

What makes a man

Hate another man

Help me understand

People are people so why should it be

You and I should get along so awfully

Help me understand

Now you’re punching and you’re kicking

And you’re shouting at me

I’m relying on your common decency

So far it hasn’t surfaced

But I’m sure it exists

It just takes a while to travel

From your head to your fist

I can’t understand

What makes a man

Hate another man

Help me understand
