Macrocosmic Harmony

The best temples serve as bridges between human scale and the macrocosm. When Beverly Spicer sent me the following image, something clicked and I understood the human body, the Sphinx and the Pyramids in a new way. I’m not sure which book this black-and-white geometric analysis of Pharaoh Rameses II was scanned from—it appears to be mirrored all over the Internet.

PharaohTriangle-555

The nemes headcloth has distinctive, straight-edged folds, which imply an intersection point above the head. Nested equilateral triangles locate the pharaoh’s third eye appropriately as an all-seeing-eye in the center of the triangle (like the eye of providence on the dollar bill).

That reminds me of an image I made recently. Here is essentially what I wrote about it on Facebook:

Beauty is experienced in the world, love in the body, and truth in the mind. The eye of horus in the center symbolizes the view of any observer. The transcendentals are ontologically one and thus they are convertible: e.g., where there is truth, there is beauty and love also. The transcendentals are irreducible qualities of awareness. The circle represents the seeming boundary between your interior sensations, thoughts, and perceptions and your exterior body, mind, and world.

Transcendentalsv3-555

Just as the transcendental qualities of awareness (love, beauty, truth) are ontologically one, so too are the trinity of data types you experience. How far from your awareness are your sensations, perceptions or thoughts? Examine your experience and you will see that there is no distance.

Do the thoughts running through your mind take place in a fundamentally different place than the sensations of your body or your perceptions of the world? They are all convertible because all this data is experienced by awareness and yet we have no trouble identifying which channel the information flows through. There is a fundamental and irreducible trinity to awareness.

I now see this ontological trinity as the fountainhead of relationships such as Isis/Horus/Osiris, Mary/Jesus/Holy-Spirit, and even Neutron/Proton/Electron.

Following a hunch I wanted to see if the Sphinx’s nemes followed the same pattern. I discovered that the pattern is similar but is also subtly different. The Sphinx’s nemes doesn’t imply nested triangles but the uraeus symbolizing the pharaoh’s pineal gland is located in the center of the vesica piscis as indicated by the crossed red lines. Incidentally, I described how to draw this image step-by-step in the latest installment of my Photoshop User Magazine column, Beyond Photoshop.

SphinxGeometry555-detail

Zooming out, the G2 pyramid also appears to fit the pattern.

SphinxGeometry555

It clicked for me when I realized that the geometric template for the Sphinx is the same as the geometric template for the Great Pyramid that I published in my book Quantification. The edge of the inscribed equilateral triangle measures 555.5 feet in the Great Pyramid.

GPGeometry555

In this way the House of the Temple (it was never a tomb) is a macrocosm of the Body carved on the Sphinx. Zooming out once again, the Engraved Hourglass Nebula is a macrocosm of that House. As above, so below.

Body-House-Cosmos-555

The above image wonderfully illustrates Mircea Eliade’s homology, Body—House—Cosmos, from his book “The Sacred and the Profane” (1959).

A big synchronicity for me is that I learned about this three-level holographic homology not from reading Eliade but from reading Beverly Spicer’s excellent book and PhD thesis from the School of Architecture at the University of Texas called, “The Ka’bah: Rhythms of Culture, Faith and Physiology,” which she was kind enough to send me. Remember Beverly was the person who sent me the black-and-white Rameses II image? That whole sequence of events was quite illuminating!

Speaking of illumination, did you know that the human eye is most sensitive to a wavelength of 5555 Ångströms, which forms the center point of our visual perception? At other frequencies, more radiant intensity is required to achieve the same luminous intensity.

See how the colors are strongest in the middle of the color ramp and fade away as they approach the infrared and ultraviolet ends of the spectrum? 5555Å is the central wavelength.

5555 Ångströms

5555 Ångströms

The peak luminous intensity of sunlight also has a wavelength of 555.5 nanometers (5555 Ångströms). This should be no surprise because our eyes evolved, or perhaps were designed to view the light of our particular Sun. The beauty of repeating 5’s harmonizing our visual perception, 5 symbolizing life, is not lost on me.

After reading a stimulating article Joe Dubs linked on Facebook entitled, “The Pythagorean Relationship Between Pi, e, and Phi” by Peter Felicetti, I realized I already knew the content, but I hadn’t considered the following geometry algebraically before. One can arrange Phi, Pi and e as an almost perfect Pythagorean triangle, but there is a tiny gap that I labeled “The Mystery” at the end of my article on Graham Hancock’s site.

This mystery is drawn to scale

This mystery is drawn to scale

When I saw it algebraically, a few more puzzle pieces fit together and it is no longer a mystery to me but a harmonious work of rational design from a very high level.

The Quadrivium

The Quadrivium

The same gap that we hear between twelve just perfect fifths and seven octaves (known as the Cycle of Fifths or the Pythagorean comma), the relationship of transcendental constants arranged in a Pythagorean triangle, and the orbital mechanics of our planet are all related because we are living in a mathematical construct. This was known long ago.

“All is number.” -Pythagoras

The above image expresses the quadrivium: number, geometry, music, and astronomy. In other words, number in itself, number in space, number in time, and number in spacetime.

I knew the Solar Year also factors in the Earth’s equatorial circumference—the following equation was published by John Michell and Robin Heath in The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth. I made this illustration commemorating this important relationship, one that essentially defines the foot.

EarthEquator-555

Speaking of Michell and Heath, they were the authors who deciphered the 5:12:13 triangle and its connection with the lunar cycle. When I was researching extending the Pythagorean theorem into three dimensions, I came across a diagram connecting the 5:12:13 and 3:4:5 triangles. That, and studying Gary Osborn’s work, inspired me to put together this image showing how dynamics related to the Earth, Moon and Sun emerge from something as fundamental to geometry as the first two Pythagorean triples.

Number in space and spacetime

Number in space and spacetime

Earth’s orbital circumference has certain clear resonances with our measurement systems.

Earth'sOrbitalCircumferencev2555

Bringing together what I wrote about in Cubits, in my book Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture and Consciousness, and from my recent experience participating in Graham Hancock’s forums when I was author of the month, these pieces now fit together with greater clarity.

Circumferences

Circumferences

Michael Kuser wrote something on my wall that inspired the following image. The first part shows the combined diagonals of the cubes bounding Earth and Moon compared to their average distance from the Sun are proportioned as the foot is to the mile (99.3%).

Lawrence Edlund discovered that the average distance of the Earth to the Sun compared to the distance light travels in one revolution of the Earth around the Sun are proportioned as the inch is to the mile (99.9%).

I put two and two together and graphically show how our units of measure resonate with our local macrocosm.

Earth-Moon-Cubes-555

In “Rotations” you see more proof that our system is a product of base-10 design. The Moon’s orbital period with respect to the fixed stars is 27.3 Earth days. Earth actually rotates 366.3 times per year relative to the stars because the orbital motion of the Earth around the Sun causes roughly one additional rotation of the planet on its own axis. Here is what Knight and Butler had to say about this phenomenon in Before the Pyramids (p240), where they describe how the megalithic system is based on the division of a circle into 366 units:

“In a solar year the Sun rises 365 times but, during the same time, a star will have risen 366 times. It sounds odd but it’s true. Each day according to the rising of a star (a sidereal day), is 23 hours 56 minutes 4 seconds in length, whereas a mean solar day is 24 hours in length. That leaves a discrepancy of 236 seconds, which over the course of a year amounts to another 24 hours. It is part of the clockwork mechanism of our solar system that there are different sorts of years, dependent on what one is observing. Our megalithic and pre-megalithic ancestors in Britain focused on the number of times a star rose in a year, and the result was 366 times [366.3 with one more digit of accuracy].”

Rotations

Rotations

Tonight I realized that the product of these rotations, 27.3 x 366.3 = 9999.99. What are the chances? I can’t begin to calculate the astronomical odds against such a numeric symmetry if our planet and its natural satellite were formed by random processes. Note that this product is independent of units and calculated solely on number of Earth rotations relative to our Moon and Sun.

Peter Plichta’s book God’s Secret Formula: Deciphering the Riddle of the Universe and the Prime Number Code taught me that 1/27.3 ≈ 0.03663 and 1/366.3 ≈ 0.00273, which you can easily verify with a calculator.

The ratio of the polar diameter of the Earth to the polar diameter of the Moon is 3.663 and vice-versa, the reciprocal ratio is 0.273 with more than 99.9% accuracy. This means the Earth and Moon system’s rotations and sizes are related in a reciprocal mathematical relationship.

Of course this is another example of what I have called “The Mystery of 273,” in this page out of Quantification.

The Mystery of 273 (update)

The Mystery of 273 (update)

Is what we call “conscious thought” incredibly rare in the grand scheme of things, relegated as it is to 2-3mm of neocortex on the surface of our brains?

We and all other organisms on this planet live in a thin biospherical shell 2-3 miles thick. The Earth orbits the Sun in the sweet spot where oceans are kept liquid and the planet retains a transparent atmosphere so perfect for astronomy and our survival. A planetary magnetic field and ozone layer shields us from the charged particles continually pouring out of the Sun, along with many variables conductive to life being fortuitously fine-tuned.

Our system orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy in another sweet spot, a circular band where products of stellar fusion such as elements heavier than helium are plentiful enough, but star formation isn’t still so active that we are bombarded out of existence. In this light, consciousness appears to be a gossamer membrane, a rare and exquisite miracle in all the cold vastness of space. This membrane/shell structure is another Body—House—Cosmos homology if you think about it.

Membranesv2-555

The following comparison highlights another possibility. The neuronal structures within our brains, roads (which evolved organically around Paris rather than through city planning as in much of North America), and the large-scale structure of the universe (simulated on the Max Planck supercomputer) all exhibit the same specific branching, filamentous pattern. Come to think of it, so too do mushroom mycelial mats, and maps of the entire Internet. What these disparate phenomena have in common is that they are all information processing networks.

Information

Information

If we view Paris from the level of cars, then roads don’t seem to be self-aware. If we view the large-scale structure of the universe from the vantage point of supercomputer simulations computed on Earth, it doesn’t seem self-aware. If we were able to view a neural structure from the point of view of electrons it probably wouldn’t seem self aware to them either, just a kind of electrical network.

However, when we use our own neural structure to introspect, then awareness is self-evident. It’s really a question of which way you are looking. If the universe looked inward, then it presumably would be self-evident that it is self-aware, including all its in-formation including suns, planets, cities, roads, people, neurons, electrons, etc.

The amazing thing is we experience this same self-awareness at our level. We are a microcosm of larger wholes and have microcosms within. Perhaps cells are also self-aware, coordinating the activities at their tiny scale. The organism of which they are a part wouldn’t seem to be self-aware to them at all. Talk about all that would seem like mere philosophy.

Post-Metaphysicsv2-555

This is yet another example of the Body—House—Cosmos homology. The human built environment accessed by roads, our “House,” is a macrocosm of the neurons in our Body, and the large-scale Cosmos is a macrocosm of our House. It is the same form, harmonizing and coordinating information at vastly different scales.

The universe itself looks like it might literally be “the mind of God,” a self-aware matrix in the process of creating complex in-formation. Awareness is not rare, but the ground of being. There has only ever been, is, or ever will be awareness being aware of itself.

That said, our limited form of consciousness might be rare and in a way, precious. We occupy the privileged position of being right in the middle of it all.

However, our awareness doesn’t require human minds anymore than the Sun requires a candle for illumination.

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 33.01° from the original White House, the Great Pyramid of 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).

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

The Tower of Light is to be sited at 33°33'33.33"N

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)

©Valode & Pistre / iceberg.fr

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
