Tower of Light

Africa’s tallest tower is in the works, with groundbreaking to occur in summer 2015 and completion scheduled for June 2018. The project’s working title is the “Al-Noor Tower” (Tower of Light in Arabic), but is expected to eventually be named after Morocco’s King Mohammed VI (source).

King Mohammed VI of Morocco is building a new financial city for the world, the Casablanca Finance City (source).

In ancient Egypt the royal treasury was called the ‘White House’ (source), and this has a resonance with the King’s Casablanca (meaning ‘White House’) Finance City. Its centerpiece will be The Tower of Light and the project site is Casablanca’s historic Anfa airport, which was closed in 2007—its runways and buildings are in the process of being demolished.

I notice that the tallest building in Hong Kong, the International Commerce Center, is 12345678.9 yards or 444,444,444 inches from the end of Anfa’s single runway.

During World War II, Anfa Airport was taken over by the Vichy French government and used as an airport as well as an air base for the Vichy French Air Force with its limited aircraft allowed by the armistice with Nazi Germany. It was also used by Deutsche Lufthansa and German military transports and was depicted in the fictional 1942 film Casablanca. (source)

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, why do they have to build the Casablanca Tower of Light precisely at latitude 33°33’33.33″N? The Tower of Light is 33° from the Sphinx (thanks Craig Compton) and the original White House in Giza. It is also 3301 nautical miles from the White House in Washington DC (thanks Mark Gray), and 6,606,666 feet from Stonehenge (thanks Urban Asplund). The Tower of Light is also approx. 3000 miles from the Kaaba (99.8%).

I love how this becomes a team effort in uncovering secrets in plain sight.

Al Noor Tower is part of a bigger project financed by Middle East Development LLC called Al Noor City – The City of Lights. The owner behind it all is Saudi Sheikh Tarek Mohammed Bin Laden, who is actually Osama Bin Laden’s half brother (source). While one half-brother was attributed with bringing the towers down, the other puts them up. There is a certain symmetry and balance to it that reminds me of this African scene in the Book of the Dead, where Anubis presides over the weighing of human spirits in the afterlife.

“Multinational Architecture firm Valode and Pistre is handling the design of the building, which is likened by those involved to a fountain pen, and tapers upwards into two blades.” (source)

Isn’t it curious how the blades resemble the ears of Anubis? Thanks to Ian Le Cheminant for making this connection. Robert Temple has written a brilliant book called The Sphinx Mystery, presenting voluminous evidence that the Sphinx was originally carved as Anubis and much later re-carved as a pharaoh after the nose broke off in an earthquake.

Mark Gray pointed out that Morocco literally means “Land of the Gods” and was the first country to recognize the fledgling United States with its White House in 1777.

Of course, the twin blades also bear a lesser resemblance to the geometry of Barad-Dur, here humorously depicted in this infographic, not of my own making.

On the project’s official site, the Tower of Light’s atrium space is shown overlaid with the following quote, “A Place of Human Convergence — No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. -Helen Keller”

The floor area is quoted at 335,000 square meters but I am optimistic that this will actually be built out at 333,333 sq. m.

…the 540 m height is said to reflect the total number of African countries (54 is approximately correct, though certainly up for debate), while its 114 stories are said to honor the same number of chapters (or surah) in the Quran. Finally, Al Noor Tower’s facade will sport a 1,000-pattern design which signifies Africa’s rich languages, which exceed 1,000.

The giant crystal on top might symbolize the Eye of Sauron or perhaps on the positive side it might be equated with the pineal gland, the human doorway to the spirit world. All in all, the Tower of Light has very provocative design and one wonders how deep the conspiracy goes in its encoding. I sit back in a state of awe at this future secret in plain sight, a cathedral for the post-modern world.

Modern Knowledge Tour

I’m honoured to be included in a group of outside-the-box thinkers in giving talks across Canada in the summer of 2015. The Modern Knowledge Tour goes all the way across the continent, from Newfoundland to British Columbia. I have time to join the tour from Halifax to Toronto, discussing themes from my Secrets in Plain Sight films, Taking Measure and Quantification books, and this blog.

MKT-ScottOnstott

Speakers include Alex Grey, Allyson Grey, Nassim Haramein, Marty Leeds, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven W. Squyres, Eliza Knockwood, Dr. Robert Zubrin, Patty Greer, Luke Rudkowski, Dr. Carmen Boulter, Michael Cremo, and myself. More speakers will probably be added between now and this summer. I hope you can join an event at the city nearest you.

Although I live in British Columbia, I grew up in California and haven’t yet seen much of Canada. In fact, I’ve never driven across either country and it will be exciting to do it rock band style with some of the speakers in an RV.

I’ve never looked at satellite maps of Toronto or Montreal but I checked them out this evening and wondered if there was any special relationship to the International Peace Garden (IPG), more or less at the center of North America. The IPG is a sort of extra-national territory straddling the border in the middle of nowhere between Manitoba and North Dakota. Kevin McMahon’s Peace Garden Secrets site has fascinating information on the IPG. Henrik Palmgren from Red Ice Creations hosted Kevin, Dan Tatman and myself in a roundtable discussion on Numerology, Geomancy & Geometry back in 2012.

Anyway, there is a special relationship and everything’s sixes:

I’ve mentioned before in Hacking the World Matrix, that the distance between the Freemason emblem building at the IPG and the Kailash Temple of Ellora India is 6666.66 nautical miles.

Also the Freemason emblem building is itself located at 100°3’33.33″ W longitude and the distance from this point to the Menec menhir alignments in Carnac, France is 6666.6 km.

The IPG Freemason emblem building is also on a long distance alignment precisely interconnecting four important sites, which I discussed in New Jerusalems.

Esoteric-Metro555

The distance from Vancouver’s tallest building to the center of the fountain in the IPG is 66,006,666 inches. All of this reminds me of the global relationships discussed in Sixes.

The distance from the Calgary Tower to the CN Tower in Toronto is e thousand kilometers. What is e? The base of the natural logarithm—one of the most important numbers in mathematics. Too geeky for you? You use Google’s search engine. Did you know Google’s initial public offering in 2004 was for e billion dollars? The number e is essential in business. An account that starts at $1 and offers an annual interest rate of R will, after t years, yield e^Rt dollars with continuous compounding.

I’ve seen e encoded before at different scales (the following image is from Deep Challenges):

The Space Needle in Seattle is almost exactly 3333.33 km from the CN Tower in Toronto, just 6 hundredths of one percent off.

The Fernsehturm tower in Berlin is 5555.55 miles from the Skytree tower in Tokyo. The Fernsehturm is the tallest structure in Germany and the Skytree is the tallest structure in Japan. In fact, the Skytree is the second tallest structure in the world (after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai).

Berlin-Tokyo555v2

That reminds me of another set of modern obelisks, which I wrote about in Threes.

Wash-DC-BofA-NY

Modern obelisks are no different than ancient obelisks in the mystery behind their placement on the Earth. The encoding seemingly transcends time.

CleopatrasNeedle

In my numerical and metrological research I have come to understand that resonances occur in various systems of units (inches, feet, miles, kilometers, and nautical miles) because the dimensions of the Earth, which is the basis of sacred geo-metry, define each unit.

Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes was in the third and last wave of new towns created in the UK to disperse population away from from London following WWII. Located approximately halfway between London and Birmingham, Milton Keynes was chartered in 1967 and planned by the Milton Keynes Development Corporation which was chaired by Lord Campbell.

The large central park in Milton Keynes was named Campbell Park in his honour. There is a memorial stone by the fountain in the park whose Latin inscription reads, Si monumentum requiris, circumspice, which translates as, “If you seek his monument, look around you”, referring to the urban landscape created by his team. This couldn’t be more accurate. Milton Keyes, often abbreviated MK, is a massive secret in plain sight.

The fountain in Campbell Park was recently replaced by the MK Rose, a design “based on the mathematical beauty of a flower, the maths that inspired cathedral Rose windows…It is the geometry behind much of the worlds sacred architecture.” Gordon Young is the artist behind these quoted words and architectural vision.

The first pillar of the MK Rose was unveiled at 11:11 on 11/11/11 to celebrate the most auspicious Remembrance Day of this century. Remember, WW1 ended at 11:11 on 11/11? Right.

MK Rose was commissioned by The Cenotaph Trust. The most elite cenotaph in the UK is of course the one next to Whitehall in London where Royals celebrate Remembrance Day every year.

My friend Tina Silver saw an old movie called The Whistle Blower (1986) with Michael Caine and she noticed there was a scene where the Queen and royal family emerge from the shadows to stare straight into the Sun at 11:11.

I verified the sun angle using the NOAA solar position calculator and a SketchUp 3D model to verify that yes, the Sun shines right down Parliament Street at 11:11 on 11/11. It is all about re-membering Osiris, but that is another story.

The Whitehall Cenotaph was designed to resemble the hilt of a sword, by Sir Edwin Lutyens, the same architect who designed New Delhi. I wrote about New Delhi in Serpent Wisdom, and discussed its 6-6-6 geometry.

The strange thing is, the distance from the Whitehall Cenotaph to MK Rose is exactly .666° of arc!

MK is designed around an axis called Midsummer Blvd that runs straight from the mirrored glass of the train station to the Tree Cathedral in Campbell Park at a place called Newlands. Many have interred the ashes of loved ones at Tree Cathedral (cost £700). No gravestones, markers or mementos are allowed on site but there is an online Book of Remembrance for those whose ashes are scattered at Tree Cathedral.

This guy has ears to hear and eyes to see. MK is a solar temple. Watch and listen:

Midsummer Blvd takes its name from the fact that it and the entire town are aligned to the summer solstice sunrise, exactly how Stonehenge’s central axis is oriented. I discovered that the centre of Stonehenge is 66.66 nautical miles from the rond-point of Tree Cathedral.

Now the weight of gold that came to Sol Amon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold. -1 Kings 10:14

Tree Cathedral of Milton Keynes

The rond-point of Tree Cathedral is .66° of arc to Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace. The line goes through an interesting quadripartite obelisk at Tree Cathedral and also cuts right down the long double avenue in Green Park from Picadilly to Canada Gate and the rond-point of Victoria Memorial.

Canada Memorial behind Canada Gate is a tribute to the members of the Canadian Forces killed during WWI and WWII. The long walk forms another sort of cathedral of trees.

Pliny and Lucan wrote that druids did not meet in stone temples or other constructions, but in sacred groves of trees.

Speaking of trees, there is a solitary oak enshrined within a rond-point at Midsummer Place Shopping Centre in MK. In fact the whole centre was built around this pre-existing tree. The oak at Midsummer Place is 3333 arcseconds from Silbury Hill.

There is a mound in Campbell Park that looks very much like Silbury Hill from the front. It is topped by a metal art piece called Light Pyramid. The Light Pyramid is 3333 arcseconds from the centre of Avebury Ring.

Avebury Ring contains the largest stone circle in Europe, and is one of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain. Silbury Hill is the tallest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe.

I’ve written before that Silbury Hill is 66.66 nautical miles from the Shard in London. The Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union. It also synchronistically resembles the MK Light Pyramid.

Silbury Blvd and Avebury Blvd are the main arterial streets of MK on either side of the central Midsummer Blvd spine, analogous to the way the ida and pingala flow on either side of the human spine.

Similiar to Silbury Hill although not as large, there is an ancient mound in the backyard of MK’s Central Library at 555 Silbury Blvd called Seklow Hundred Moot Hill.

A Moot hill is a hill or mound historically used as a meeting place. In early mediaeval Britain, such hills were used for moots, meetings of local people to settle local business. Among other things, proclamations might be read; decisions might be taken; court cases might be settled at a moot. Although some moot hills were naturally occurring features or had been created long before as burial mounds, others were purpose-built. -Source

The distance from Seklow Hundred Moot Hill in MK to Cleopatra’s Needle in London is .666666° of arc.

The distance from Glastonbury Tor to the “Head” art piece in Campbell Park is 6,666,666 inches.

There is a small park in MK’s theatre district where there is a tiny replica of Stonehenge and three pyramids recalling Giza. It was also the site of a large Ferris wheel at one time which is still visible in Google Earth. Wonders abound in MK.

Milton Keynes was named after a village that was originally called Middeltone in the 11th century. After the Norman invasion, the de Cahaines family held the manor from 1166 to the late 13th century as well as others in the country (Ashton Keynes, Somerford Keynes, and Horsted Keynes). During this time the village became known as Middleton de Keynes eventually shortening to Milton Keynes.

That same Keynes family includes John Maynard Keynes, the founder of modern macroeconomics. Keynes was described by The Economist as “Britain’s most famous 20th-century economist.” Keynes believed that government spending regulates the business cycle. A resurgence of Keynesian thought in 2008-9 led to the stimulus packages and bailouts of the banks.

“Newton was not the first of the Age of Reason. He was the last of the magicians, the last of the Babylonians and Sumerians…because he looked on the universe and all that is in it as a riddle, as a secret which could be read by applying pure thought to certain evidence, certain mystic clues which God had lain about the world to allow a sort of philosopher’s treasure hunt to the esoteric brotherhood…He regarded the universe as a cryptogram set by the Almighty—just as he himself wrapt the discovery of the calculus in a cryptogram when he communicated with Leibnitz. By pure thought, by concentration of mind, the riddle, he believed, would be revealed to the initiate.” -John Maynard Keynes

Keynes‘ most influential critic was Milton Friedman who was described by The Economist as, “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century and possibly of all of it.” Milton believed it is the money supply alone that regulates the business cycle.

Isn’t it odd that the most influential economists of the modern era hold the names Milton and Keynes?

A recent investment report attests that Milton Keynes attracts the highest proportion of international businesses in Great Britain outside London.

Could this investment be happening unconsciously, given that most international investors are familiar with John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman? To what extent are the distances and alignments the result of unconscious planning?

Or could the MK in Milton Keynes be the same MK in MK Ultra? To what extent are our minds controlled? How much does govern-ment govern our mentality?

Ultra was the designation adopted by British military intelligence in June 1941 for wartime signals intelligence obtained by breaking high-level encrypted enemy radio and teleprinter communications at the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park.

Bletchley Park is officially part of Milton Keynes.

Ultra intelligence came from cracking the code of the German enigma cipher. Even though it might sound enigmatic, I don’t think there really is such a thing as unconsciousness. I will crack the code for you: consciousness is the ground of being.

Mystics, contrary to religionists, are always saying that reality is not two things — God and the world — but one thing, consciousness. -Amit Goswami, physicist

The finer grained question then is at which level is the consciousness that patterns Milton Keynes and the world? Is it at the mundane human level, the level of human elites or something alien, lower, higher and/or more mystical? I leave it up to you, dear reader, to decide. Milton Keynes is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.
