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.

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.

Tripolis

In 2011, I wrote about how the ancient Egyptian Temple of Debod was moved to Madrid, and how it is aligned with St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Madrid-Rome555

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.

Debod-Lateran-Theodosius555

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.

tripoli-tripod

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-Aurelius555

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.

SerpentineColumn555

“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.

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?

The King’s Son/Sun got together with his Mother/Moon and it ended in tragedy. Oedipus put out his own eyes in despair. When the Moon eclipses the Sun there is darkness.

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

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.

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.

Paternoster-St-George555v2

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

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.

Amore-Romae555

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

Spain555

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

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

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"

“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.

Nation-DOR-555

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.

ParisAxis555

Putting these patterns together, here is what emerges:

Paris-Jerusalem-Axes333

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

NewJeru-Dore-555

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.

GrantPark-Tuileries-Jerusalem3

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

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.

Luxor-obelisk-round-fountain555

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.

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.

Maracaibo-Heliopolis-Everest555

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…
