The metre (spelled meter in United States) was introduced by the First French Republic in 1799. It was originally defined to be one ten millionth of the distance (10,000 km) between the North Pole and the Equator through Paris.


Since then the metre has been defined variously as the length of certain prototype objects, the wavelength of a specified light spectra, and since 1983 in terms of the speed of light, which is itself defined by the metre and the second.

I discovered that the metre exposes something amazing about the absolute size of the Earth and the Moon. The Earth’s polar diameter is 10,000 times the square root of the divine proportion (aka golden ratio, approximately 1.618033989) in kilometres. The combined polar diameters of Earth and Moon are 10,000 times the divine proportion in kilometres. My book The Divine Proportion delves deeply into this amazing ratio which is symbolized by the Greek letter Ф.


The reason the above correlations are only 99.97% accurate is because when GPS satellites became operational in the 1990’s we learned that one ten millionth of the distance between the North Pole and the Equator is not exactly 1 m as extrapolated at the end of the 18th century, but is actually 1.000197 m.

In 1973, John Michell published in The View Over Atlantis that the Great Pyramid’s slope of 51°51′ encodes the proportions of the Earth and Moon. The base of the pyramid in the following diagram corresponds with the Earth’s equator. The apex of the pyramid coincides with the center of the Moon when the Moon is drawn tangent to the Earth as shown. The sole surviving ancient wonder of the world therefore encodes the proportions of Earth and Moon in its aeons-old architecture.


I discovered that the Great Pyramid’s location on our planet is divinely proportioned with respect to the longest possible distance on land, based on the global sea level since the last ice age.

In my Secrets In Plain Sight Volume 1 film, I pointed out Webb’s discovery that the Great Pyramid’s latitude (29.979245.8°N) precisely encodes the speed of light (299792458 metres per second).

The metre is officially defined as, “the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 of a second,” and the latitude 29.979245.8°N makes me wonder if the pyramid was originally designed as a shining mountain of metrology? The metre might have merely been rediscovered in relatively recent times (circa 1799) as an obvious method of rationalizing the circumference of the Earth.

The fact that the light speed latitude and the Ф point along the longest distance on land should coincide is nothing short of miraculous.

Author Gary Osborn discovered that the location of the so-called granite “coffer” within the “King’s Chamber” inside the Great Pyramid is the focus of a golden spiral (based on the divine proportion). This explains why the King’s Chamber is offset with respect to the centerline of the pyramid. Read on to see how this supports the notion that the coffer may have been used as an resonation chamber for the human body.

I speculate that they put salt water in the coffer and the ancient initiate floated in the warm dark like people do in modern isolation tanks. It would be the ultimate place for the human body to resonate with the pyramid mountain, the Earth’s landmass and the Earth-Moon system.

Consider also that the human body is divinely proportioned with respect to the scale of all things. We are literally the bridge between macrocosm and microcosm.

Flinders Petrie meticulously surveyed the Great Pyramid in the 19th century. See page 27 of The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh for Petrie’s measurements of the King’s Chamber. Petrie measured everything in inches but if we convert to metres, something amazing pops out—the King’s Chamber encodes divine proportions directly in metres.

The base circumference of the King’s Chamber is (2 x 5.24) + (2 x 10.47) = 31.42 m. 10π is approximately 31.42. Thanks to Leo Nolette for spotting this connection. So the King’s Chamber encodes the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter in metres and of course base 10.

I have created numerous illustrations of the Great Pyramid’s mysteries over the years and published many of them in my books. This one shows how the pyramid “squares the circle” and how the mathematical constant e (Euler’s number) is encoded by comparing the pyramid with an inscribed equilateral triangle.

This one shows how the human body resonates with the divine proportion and the pyramid form.


This one shows how the Sphinx was located in proximity to the G2 pyramid (neighboring the Great Pyramid) to purposefully encode a single geometric template based on the vesica piscis and the divine proportion. This setup creates a sympathetic resonance as above, so below.

“Through the phenomenon of cosmocization…the human becomes microcosm of the house or temple, just as the house or temple becomes microcosm of the cosmos. The inverse is true as well: the cosmos is macrocosm to the house, the house is macrocosm to the human, and the human is, therefore, in profound interrelationship with the cosmos.” -Beverly White Spicer

Cosmocization is what I referred to in the cover of my most recent book, Tripartite.


In 1999, Osborn showed the correspondence between what I’m now calling the Cosmocization Chamber (aka King’s) and the third eye at the center of the human brain.

Osborn later connected the physiology of the third eye to the ancient Eye of Horus symbol, which he called the Gate of God.


The third eye is the mind’s eye, the Gate of God, the locus of enlightenment. This reminds me of a quote from my essay on Light.

“If we consider the word light as a euphemism for the word knowledge, our definition of the word light is then clarified. We then find that light is knowledge and we are all on the path of true knowledge.

Now, knowledge as listed in the dictionary comes from the French root word knowen, to know; (1) having understanding gained by actual experience, or practical experience; (2) the state of being aware of something or of having information; (3) the act of understanding: clear perception of truth; (4) something learned and kept in mind.

If we interchange the word knowledge for the word light we have the true Rosicrucian meaning…If light is knowledge, and knowledge is born intuitively, then the “Path of True Light” is not outward but inward.” –Ronald Cannata (1971)

The Great Pyramid elegantly encodes great truth using the universal language of proportion and metrology. The way that it does so on multiple simultaneous levels is truly illuminating. We still have much to learn from this secret in plain sight.
