The tower erected in 1889 by freemason Gustave Eiffel (who also designed the inner structure of the Statue of Liberty) remains to this day the tallest structure in Paris. The Eiffel tower served as the entrance to the World’s Fair, opening out onto the Champ de Mars. The Mars Field is named after the Campus Martius in Rome, which honors the Roman god of war.
I’ve been using the most popular depiction of a man’s body ever made – Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian man – to uncover embodied urban symbolism, see Astana and the Olympics.
The Roman Vitruvius’ Ten Books of Architecture explained how effective temples are based on the human body. I have found just such a temple resonating with Mars in the heart of Paris.
Mars’ phallus obviously maps to the Eiffel tower, his navel power chakra maps to the fountain at the center of the paths, his heart chakra is on the cross axis with Mitterand’s ancient Egyptian-themed 1989 French bicentennial Monument of Human Rights, and the obelisk at Place Fontenoy is his pineal gland/third eye chakra. Incidentally, this same obelisk forms part of the solar alignment discussed in Secrets In Plain Sight – Volume 1.
Notice also that the Military School itself forms a collar to the Vitruvian man’s head and UNESCO forms a kind of helmet, horn, or Martian antenna.
The red and white fields resonate with the two hemispheres of the brain, the colors of upper and lower Egypt, the two springs at Glastonbury, or blood and semen. The lattermost pairing resonates with the killing and rape associated with war. You could say Mars is embodied at the scale of this famous linear urban complex. Is his power somehow magically transferred to the military school?
I find it fascinating that the Comte de Saint-Germain reorganized the Ecole Militaire in 1777. St. Germain is one of the most interesting persons in history.
Myths, legends and speculations about St. Germain began to be widespread in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and continue today. They include beliefs that he is immortal, the Wandering Jew, an alchemist with the “Elixir of Life”, a Rosicrucian, and that he prophesied the French Revolution. He is said to have met the forger Giuseppe Balsamo (alias Cagliostro) in London and the composer Rameau in Venice. Some groups honor Saint Germain as a supernatural being called an Ascended Master. -Source
Synchronicity: St. Germain is one of the main characters in a book I’m currently reading to my son, The Magician by Michael Scott.
Napoleon attended the Ecole Militaire in 1784 and is entombed very close by in Les Invalides.
Being familiar with David Wood’s book GenIsis (1985), I see a connection to the Mars linear complex in Paris. Before I tell you what that is, let me show you the structured landscape that Wood discovered 660 kilometers due South in the region of Rennes le Chateau.
When I first saw this geometry I dismissed it because it is not a regular pentagram but a pentacle. However I was far too hasty. After having recently read Wood’s follow up book that he wrote with Ian Campbell called GeneSet (1994), I see incredible wisdom in the diagram that wasn’t open to me until I grew to have eyes to see it.
If the green circle has a radius of 1 then its circumference is exactly 2 Pi. The amazing thing is, the golden triangle also has a perimeter of 2 Pi (99.8% accurate). So in a sense this diagram is every bit as important as Squaring the Circle is in sacred geometry. I think of this as Triangulating the Circle.
The key to Triangulating the Circle is dividing the circle into 15 parts as was done with the gray 15 pointed star. This 15 part division was suggested by the placement of the towns around Rennes le Chateau and that is how Wood chanced upon this geometric discovery.
In GenIsis Wood mentions the Osiris story and how it is usually reported that Set cut Osiris’ body into 14 pieces and threw his phallus into the Nile. He claims there were therefore a total of 15 pieces rather than 14 as is usually reported. If you think about it, this makes perfect sense. There really are 15 parts to the male body if you count them. The 15th part would be the pointy extension in the diagram that penetrates the circle. It has a 36 degree internal angle just like the regular pentagram.
I noticed another intriguing layer embedded in Wood’s diagram. In John Martineau’s A Little Book of Coincidence in the Solar System he mentions that Saturn’s and Earth’s sizes (99%) and mean orbits (98%) are given by a 15 pointed star such that the inner circle represents Earth and the outer circle represents Saturn.
Wood and Campbell pointed out in GeneSet how Phi is also embedded in the diagram. I made a piece of art that shows these connections and more. To learn more about how the Sun and Saturn relate, watch David Talbot’s Thunderbolts of the Gods.
Sacred Marriage by Scott Onstott
Today using Google Earth I drew a circle that hits Rennes le Chateau, Cassaignes, Serres, Bugarach, and Saint-Just-et-le-Bezu (see enlarged diagram) and noticed that its area is 66,666,666 square meters. Amazing. This is the circumcircle in Wood’s diagram, shown in blue in my Google Earth image.
Then I copied the longitude of the center of this circle and flew back to Paris where I created a placemark along the Eiffel tower- Champ de Mars axis. Guess where this exact center point is: the center of la Place de Breteuil. This point is therefore perfectly due north of the center point of the same sized circle in the Languedoc. It is the intersection point of the Eiffel tower- Champ de Mars axis with the axis of Les Invalides where Napoleon was entombed. Breteuil was the Minister of War twice under Louis XV.
Drawing a circle with an area of 66,666,666 square meters from la Place de Breteuil has a resonance with Leonardo’s Vitruvian man because the center point is at the top of the circumcircle around the urban body of Mars and the corners of Leonardo’s page are touched by the circle itself.
The red line from the obelisk at Place Fontenoy traces the central axis of embodied Mars straight through the Eiffel tower at a heading of 314 degrees, recalling Pi.
Extending this line across the earth it goes directly to the center of Danebury iron age hill fort in the UK. Built in the the 6th century BC, Danebury is an intriguing place for the Paris Mars axis to end up for several reasons.
The Meteoritical Society lists the ‘first British meteorite find’ from the Danebury hill fort site. -Source I’m going to hazard a guess that this meteorite came from Mars.
Just a stone’s throw from the “hill fort” was a Roman villa or country farmhouse whose central floor mosaic has survived and been recently installed in the Museum of the Iron Age in nearby Andover. The Fullerton Mosaic depicts Mars at the center of the main room.
In the book Two-Thirds: A History of Our Galaxy (1993), the author David P. Myers tells an amazing story of an extra-terrestrial human civilization that colonized Mars eons ago and after a great war, they eventually came to our planet which they called…wait for it…Danebury. So perhaps the Danebury ring actually depicts the Earth. If so then the Paris Eiffel-Champ de Mars axis represents the colonists coming from Mars to Earth! All written out on the ground in plain sight.
Myers also goes on to draw a parallel between Cydonia on Mars and the Avebury/Silbury Hill complex. He claims the Martian colonists actually built Avebury ring and Silbury Hill as a mirror of their destroyed settlement on Mars. Here I’ve overlaid Google Mars imagery over Google Earth imagery and you can see the large crater and conical mound do match Avebury ring and Silbury Hill. The face on mars isn’t represented on earth (it’s a field) nor is the 5 sided pyramidal structure.
On August 5th 2012, Curiosity, NASA’s next Mars rover is scheduled to land on the red planet. August 5th just happens to be the date when a very special astronomical event occurs. An equilateral triangle (eye of God) forms with Mars, Saturn, and Spica in the constellation Virgo. All 3 are first magnitude objects and this arrangement will be easy to spot almost everywhere on Earth. Thanks to Daniel White for posting this intriguing video on my facebook wall.
Curiously Mars, Saturn, and Spica resonate with Set, Osiris, and Isis respectively. That’s quite a love triangle. In a few days Curiosity will land on Mars looking for life. As NASA says at the end of the above video, “The real show is about to begin.”

San Francisco is brimming with secrets in plain sight. I’ll take you on a tour through some of them in this post so sit back and enjoy the ride.
Stephen O’Rourke wrote a fascinating article about the masonic history of San Francisco. He identified a street pyramid in the Streets of San Francisco (which incidentally is the name of a great TV series from my childhood).
Many of the state’s pioneers, Fremont, Stevenson, O’Farrell and Montgomery were Masons. The first Masonic meeting in fact took place only two years after the US took control of San Francisco, on October 17, 1849, at 728 Montgomery Street…[in the adjacent block to where the Transamerica Pyramid now stands]. -Stephen O’Rourke
The streets of O’Rourke’s “unfinished” pyramid (just as on the dollar bill) are Montgomery at the top, Columbus and Market on the sides, and Van Ness at the bottom. These are all very important streets in the urban plan. Market doesn’t perfectly mirror Columbus but the pyramid is clear enough.
The Transamerica Pyramid is at the upper left corner, Aquatic Park and Fort Mason are in the lower left, and City Hall is near the lower right corner. See how the curved breakwater guides the eye around to Fort Mason. We’ll get to Pier 33 later on.
California Street bisects the pyramid and 1111 California Street stands where the Kings’s chamber would be in the heart of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
1111 California is the address of the Masonic Center at the top of Nob Hill (see Repeating Ones and 11-11). Cable cars run up and down California street.
In fact I used to ride the cable cars almost every day right past 1111 California when I lived in Pacific Heights and commuted to UC Berkeley in Architecture school from 90-91 (connecting to BART under the Bay). Masonic Center is a famous auditorium where I saw Ravi Shankar perform circa 95.
There is a frieze on the building exterior representing a gigantic tug of war between good and evil forces where they are pulling on the Sun. The interior strangely contains gravel and soil from each of the 58 counties in California, suggesting some kind of sympathetic magic at work.
Directly across from 1111 California is Grace Cathedral, an Episcopal cathedral done in the gothic style and completed in 1964.
Richard Cassaro has discovered what he calls Freemasonry’s Lost Secret encoded in gothic cathedral architecture.

Contained in the cathedral are stained glass windows by noted artists that depict over 1100 figures ranging from Adam and Eve to Albert Einstein. 32 windows or window groups…including The Chapel of Grace and baptistry window series contains over 32,000 pieces of glass. -Source
Laid out on the floor of Grace Cathedral is a labyrinth that is based on the famous medieval labyrinth of The Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres (see my Chartres videos). There is a similar labyrinth outside that you can walk almost anytime to simulate the journey of the soul.

The red dot identifying Downtown San Francisco in Google Earth is on Mason street. Cable cars also run on Mason (they don’t run on many streets).
The Transamerica Pyramid (see my San Francisco video) and 555 California (see Snowflake and the Flower) are the two tallest buildings in the City (left and right below). I used to work in between them at two architecture firms in the late 90s.

Enough about California Street, let’s now consider the Great Seal of California.
The Seal of California depicts the Goddess Minerva having sprung full grown from the brain of Jupiter. This was interpreted as analogous to the political birth of the State of California without having gone through the probation period of being a Territory.-Source
Minerva appears to be sitting where UC Berkeley is located in the East Bay, just a coincidence.
Minerva is displayed on the Medal of Honor, the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government.
Note the inverted pentagram which reminds me of the inverted broken pentagram in the streets above the White House. Interestingly the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle (where JFK’s funeral was held) is just one building away from the intersection where the pentagram is broken.
Minerva is often depicted with her sacred creature, an owl, which symbolizes her ties to wisdom.-Source
There appears to be an owl depicted in the landscaping surrounding the US Capitol.
The Bohemian Club logo features an owl and this plaque is on their headquarters at 624 Taylor Street in San Francisco.
“Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long-legg’d spinners, hence!
Beetles black approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence.”- Shakespeare (Midsummer’s Night’s Dream)
The quote tells the members to relax and take a break from the relentless plotting to take over the world or whatever it is they regularly do.
The Bohemian Club membership lists are private. Some prominent figures have been given honorary membership, such as Richard Nixon and William Randolph Hearst. Members have included some U.S. presidents (usually before they are elected to office), many cabinet officials, and CEOs of large corporations, including major financial institutions. Major military contractors, oil companies, banks (including the Federal Reserve), utilities, and national media have high-ranking officials as club members or guests. Many members are, or have been, on the board of directors of several of these corporations. -Source
The Bohemian Club has a 2700 acre summer camp about an hour’s drive from SF they call the Bohemian Grove where they enact the Cremation of Care ceremony. It’s the original Burning Man.
The participants enact a ritual sacrifice in front of a colossal stone owl. A boatman recalling Charon arrives to begin the ceremony (see Airports).
Alex Jones had a camera snuck into the Cremation of Care ceremony at Bohemian Grove in 2000:
In a fascinating interview with Josh Reeves on Red Ice radio I learned that there is a statue of Saint John of Nepomuk at Bohemian Grove. This catholic saint was confessor of the queen of Bohemia who was martyred because he refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. Nepomuk is depicted holding a finger to his lips…meaning keep quiet.

The subtext to the elite is keep quiet or you will suffer the same fate.
Martyrdom of St. John Nepomuk by Szymon Czechowicz (1750)
In the interview Henrik Palmgren and Josh Reeves both agreed that the owl is the true illuminati symbol.
My friend Jan Thulstrup was doing some research on the Royal Arch in freemasonry and discovered some amazing correlations with Pier 33:
Pier |pi(ə)r| noun:
1 a structure leading out from the shore into a body of water, in particular a platform supported on pillars or girders, used as a landing stage for boats.
2 a solid support designed to sustain vertical pressure, in particular a pillar supporting an arch or a bridge.
Pier 33 clearly features an arch with keystone flanked by two symbolic piers (definition 2).
I used to drive by Pier 33 every day from 97-02 when I taught at the Academy of Art University’s Architecture campus in Fisherman’s Wharf. I never gave it a second thought at the time.
The Royal Arch is part of the York Rite. Freemasons who reach this degree may continue to Cryptic Masonry or go straight to the Knights Templar. -Source
Here, the progression of the signs is from left to right, and we see the sign of Cancer as the entire keystone. The reason that the signs appear to be going in the wrong direction is that we are looking into the “temple” from the outside [of the galaxy]. Notice that a cluster of 7 stars float below the keystone, which are symbolic of the Pleiades.
Notice also the heraldric shield that depicts an ox, an eagle, a lion, and a man. These are direct references to the fixed signs of the zodiac, namely Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius. The Sun and Moon hover above the arch, and above the two pillars that support the arch. These pillars are called Jachin and Boaz, are sometimes simply labeled as J and B, and are important elements in understanding the Royal Arch via operative Masonry. Source
The bottom of the tracing board depicts a coffin, ark of the covenant, and one other object I’m not sure of on the left (tablets of Moses maybe?). There is a star with a tail suggesting a comet under the arch.
Please remember the sign Cancer is at the top of the royal arch.
Jan stretched a cord along the actual pier (definition 1) where the ferry to Alcatraz docks adjacent to Pier 33 and discovered it has a bearing of 33 degrees true north.
This pier (definition 1) is called Alcatraz Landing. Known as The Rock, Alcatraz was one of the world’s most forbidding prisons before it closed in 1963. Officially no one ever Escaped from Alcatraz although 3 men were lost at sea which reminds me of Admiralty law (another dark rabbit hole).
Alcatraz Island Lighthouse is the oldest light station on the US West Coast. How’s that for a symbol of illumination? Here it is from Pier 33.
Image by Bruce C. Cooper under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license
Fisherman’s Wharf is located nearby at Pier 39. Its symbol is a crab (cancer is Latin for crab) because from the city’s early days during the Gold Rush where Italian emigre fishermen settled in the area and fished for the Dungeness Crab. From then until present day it remained the home base of San Francisco’s fishing fleet.
Fisherman’s Wharf became a tourist attraction in the 70s and continues to this day. Millions of tourists enjoy eating dungeness crab before of after taking the ferry to Alcatraz and exploring the historic prison. The last time I did this was when my Italian friend Luciano from Trieste visited me in SF.

The Royal Arch is really an astronomical allegory:
The tropics of cancer and capricorn are so named because they represent the circles of latitude on the Earth that mark the most northerly and most southerly positions at which the Sun may appear directly overhead at its zenith.
The imaginary line is called the Tropic of Cancer because when it was named, the Sun was in the direction of the constellation Cancer at the June solstice. However, this is no longer true due to the precession of the equinoxes. According to International Astronomical Union boundaries, the Sun now is actually in Taurus at the June solstice. -Source
Image based on work by WikiLaurent and Thesevenseas
Jan Thulstrup sees Alcatraz Landing as the Gate of Man…
…and the Golden Gate as the Gate of God. There is definitely a resemblance (made in his image they say).
Image by Rich Niewiroski Jr.
There is something to this. The journey to The Rock is a journey of the soul into incarnation in the prison of the body. The light that shines from within is the light of spirit. After death the soul passes through the Golden Gate on its way to the Duat (see my San Francisco video).
I was reading Goro Adachi’s mind-blowing post on Elenin: Lucifer’s Comet and came across a key piece of information relating to San Francisco.
Image by Goro Adachi
Another equally impressive geometric message, initially hinted in the name “Golden Gate” (in San Francisco), has to do with the Golden Ratio (or “Phi”) which is fractally encoded in pentagram…
Turns out the Birthquake latitude is exactly 1.618 times that of the Tropic of Cancer (~23.44° North), i.e. Golden Ratio. (Big thanks to reader “Azazel” for discovering this and independently noting Elenin’s pentagrammic approach to Earth.) -Goro Adachi
That’s right SF’s latitude = Phi x Tropic of Cancer. The Tropic of Cancer shifts in a complicated manner over time. That’s why it creates a band when multiplied by Phi.

I was looking at the map and realized that the center of the dome of San Francisco’s City Hall, the Masonic Temple at 1111 California Street, and Alcatraz Landing at Pier 33 are all located in a perfect line.
I stretched a cord and lo and behold the distance from the top of the dome of SF City Hall to the beginning of Pier 33 is 3333 meters exactly.
This reminds me of the shafts in the Great Pyramid that point to Orion and Sirius (the Duat).
Discovered by Robert Bauval in The Orion Mystery
SF City Hall has a floor area of 46,000 square meters, recalling Obama reading Psalm 46 on 9/11/11 (see 11:11). City Hall is an impressive structure having the fifth largest dome in the world.

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 a year amounts to another 24 hours. -Before the Pyramids by Knight and Butler
Furthermore 366 is the key to the ancient megalithic system of measure. Knight and Butler show how the earth’s meridian is divided into 366 Megalithic degrees. Each Megalithic degree is divided into 60 minutes and each minute is divided into 6 seconds. Amazingly each Megalithic second is equal to 366 Megalithic Yards (MY). Are you with me?
Knight and Bulter reveal that the width of Ellipse Park in front of the White House is 366 MY (see my post on Ellipses) and that Stonhenge’s henge (earth circle) has a circumference of 366 MY.
Alexander Thom invented the MY unit after surveying thousands of megalithic sites in the UK.
1 MY = 2.722 feet ± .002 feet
John Michell and Robin Heath had reason to believe this value was ever so slightly off (0.2% off from 1 MY to be exact). They define what they call an Astronomical Megalithic Yard (AMY) in The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth.
1 AMY = 36/7 x .528 = 2.715428715428715428…
The fractions defining the AMY remind me of the latitude of Avebury (360/7)° and the fact that there are 5280 feet in a mile. An amazing metrology.
The values of MY and AMY are both suspiciously close to the mathematical constant e.
e = 2.718281828… (0.1% off from 1 MY).
Bernoulli discovered the constant e is an interesting transcendental number.
“One example is an account that starts with $1.00 and pays 100 percent interest per year. If the interest is credited once, at the end of the year, the value is $2.00.
If the interest is computed and added twice in the year, the $1 is multiplied by 1.5 twice, yielding $1.00 × 1.5 x 1.5 = $2.25. Compounding quarterly yields $2.44, compounding monthly yields $2.61.
Bernoulli noticed that this sequence approaches a limit. With continuous compounding, the account value will reach $2.718281828… which became known as e.
In the IPO filing for (SF Bay Area company) Google in 2004, rather than a typical round-number amount of money, the company announced its intention to raise $2,718,281,828 which is e billion dollars to the nearest dollar.” -Source
This is a fair use of the Google logo as I am discussing the Google IPO
Google is continuing to change the world in a compounding sort of fashion.
Now that I’m geeking out, I can tell you e is also part of “the most beautiful theorem in mathematics”, known as Euler’s identity. -Source
e‘s importance is is right up there with Pi, Phi, and 528 in my humble opinion. I discovered the following harmonious relationship between these constants (99.9% accurate). Call it the Onstott rationale:
528 is the heart of the solfeggio (ancient musical scale) which arises naturally out of the Ennead:
The ennead was encoded in the relationship between the angles of Columbus Ave, Mason Street (representing the street grid), the location of the Transamerica Pyramid and the location, length, and orientation of Treasure Island as shown in my San Francisco video.
Cort Lindahl discovered that the red line goes directly due north to Sundial Bridge in Redding, California. The distance from the base of the gnomon of Sundial Bridge to the center of the Ennead of San Francisco is 166.66 nautical miles.
Let’s not forget that the flag of the City of San Francisco features a Phoenix…
…or that the United Nations was chartered in SF’s civic center. The UN Emblem is divided into 33 sectors.
The Transamerica Pyramid is at the head of Columbus Ave [dove is columbae in Latin] that cuts across the street grid at a 40 degree angle (40 x 9 = 360).
666 Filbert is nearby this photo location. It is the Peter and Paul Catholic Church which is featured on the Transamerica Pyramid’s official website due to the resemblance of form perhaps.
“The distance from Nazca to Angkor is 12,446 miles, one half of the circumference of the earth. San Francisco is 4,754 miles from Nazca. San Francisco is 7,692 miles from Angkor. These distances express double φ (Phi) relationships as follows:
12,446/7,692 = 1.618
7,692/4,754 = 1.618
These are precise expressions of the golden section.” -Jim Alison
What does that tell you? My research is consistently leading to the spacefaring, four-dimensional gods. It stands to reason that four dimensional entities would deliberately impulse people to encode patterns in space as well as time.
See again Richard Cassaro’s research that ties disparate cultures together which archaeologists think had no contact with each other in space or time.
For what it’s worth I ran a bunch of JCN full matches on many of the topics in this post. Here is what turned up. It’s not to be relied on as fact, but JCN is a powerful tool for divination that can definitely lead one in interesting directions.

San Francisco’s namesake is Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) who founded the Franciscan order. Francis was a wealthy young man and soldier who had an ecstatic vision while fighting a war.
Ecstasy of Saint Francis by Caravaggio, c.1595
After the ecstasy Francis returned to Assisi, gave up all his possessions and wealth to lead an ascetic life. On a pilgrimage to Rome, Francis begged with the beggars at St. Peter’s. The experience moved him to live in poverty. He founded the Order of Poor Clares for women and became known as the patron saint of animals and the environment.
Pope Innocent III endorsed his Franciscan order in 1210. That’s the same “Innocent” who ordered hundreds of thousands of Cathars massacred in the Albigensian crusade. In 1219, Francis went to Egypt where crusaders were besieging Damietta, hoping to find martyrdom at the hands of the Muslims.
I find St. Francis to be a complex character. I admire him for his attitudes toward women, the poor, animals, and the environment. Less clear is his relationship with Innocent III and his motives for going to Egypt. There is brilliance and shadow in everyone.
Yin and yang are not opposing forces (dualities), but complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects as light cannot exist without darkness and vice-versa, but either of these aspects may manifest more strongly in particular objects, and may ebb or flow over time. Source
Perhaps that is the message of San Francisco. It is a dynamic city where light and dark dance in the ever evolving transformation of human consciousness.
After this post I’m going to take a break from blogging and weave my videos, blog, and additional research together in a book / ebook / maybe video. Please add your email address to the ‘new video’ list on the right sidebar if you’d like to be notified when it’s done.
Orion is perhaps the most recognizable constellation in the heavens:
Image courtesy Stellarium open source software
Orion is known as the Hunter in the West. The ancient Egyptians identified this constellation as Osiris. As you can see Goliath is depicted below as another Orion. I wrote about this giant and other sons of Anak in my post Children of Dan.
David and Goliath by Osmar Schindler (c. 1888)
The correlation of Orion to a giant is born out in the arabic constellation name الجبار (al-Jabbār) which means “the Giant”. Here’s a list of the brightest stars of Orion:
All the above meanings come from Arabic except Bellatrix which is Latin. Perhaps something was lost in the Latin translation?
The three belt stars are always the first thing that catches my eye in the night sky. They were known as the Three Magi in the Bible.
The Magi Journeying by James Joseph Jacques Tissot (1836–1902)
Mark Gray and I both independently saw the correlation of the three belt stars to Ground Zero but it was his post on Facebook that inspired me to look closer (thank you Mark).
Robert Bauval was the first to make the correlation between the belt stars of Orion and the three pyramids of Giza in The Orion Mystery (1994).
The correlation between Giza and Ground Zero is not perfect (the Freedom Tower should be in the middle of West street), and thus I’m not sure if it was intended. However the Great Pyramid is a Ground Zero of sorts, being the tallest structure in the world for more than 4000 years, marker of the original prime meridian, and last surviving ancient wonder of the world.
I already explored what I see as strong connections between the World Trade Center and the Pleiades in my previous post.
However I have found some other very interesting correlations that might cause you to wonder. Not everything is a conspiracy. Some things, amazing things, seem to be organized by the universe, or God if you prefer. Places like Giza and Stonehenge have layer upon layer of hidden meaning, operating all at once: hyperdimensional meaning if you will.
So for another layer of meaning in lower Manhattan I overlaid the whole constellation of Orion over ground zero. If Betelgeuse and Bellatrix are in the water on the state line separating New York from New Jersey, Alnitak is the foundation of the South Tower, Alnilam is the foundation of the North Tower, and Mintaka is the Freedom Tower.
The Orion Nebula
The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. -Wikipedia
Image courtesy NASA/ESA
“No male wears a sword between his legs, and very few hunters carry a sword. Perhaps a more appropriate description of that which is hanging down below Orion’s waist is that of a phallus.” -Dan S. Ward of Halexandria.org
So the Orion nebula has the stuff that generates stars above and represents the male generative system below (in the microcosm). On the scale of New York, the correlation is to a line of buildings including the Millennium Hilton, 195 Broadway, and the Fulton Street Transit Center.
The Millennium Hilton has 55 floors and is located at 55 Church Street.
It is hard to believe that the owners of the Millenium Hilton accidentally misspelled the name Millennium in their hotel occupying some of the most prime real estate of Manhattan. Thanks to Ian for solving this mystery: Mille Nium means something in Latin:
A thousand [year] dominion is what Millennialsm is all about – notions such as Christ reigning for a thousand years before the Last Judgement or Adolph Hitler’s vision of a Third Reich which would last for one thousand years.
5 is the number of life, the generative power.
Image by renaissance alchemist Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
All the secrets in plain sight encoded in the Millennium Tower, Dome, Wheel and Park leave me unsurprised about the Millennium Hilton.
If sperm are generated in the gonads they need to be communicated down the phallus.

The Fulton Street Transit Center is a $1.4 billion project currently under construction that will distribute millions of people to destinations all over lower Manhattan. You get the picture.
The location of Saiph is between two adjacent buildings: the American International Building and 60 Wall Street.
The American International is currently the tallest building in lower Manhattan, having 66 floors. The Freedom Tower under construction will eclipse it when it becomes America’s tallest building.

60 Wall Street is the current American headquarters of Deutsche Bank. The building is the largest corporate building in the financial district, having 55 floors. It’s the blue building on the left in the above image. The atrium of 60 Wall Street is shown below:

Hypostyle capitals come from the temple of Karnak in Egypt:
This reminds me of a insightful connection Mark Gray made:
Ahkenaton, Nefertiti, and family worshipping the Aton sun disc
Counting all of Rigel’s radiation (not just visible light, but infrared, ultraviolet and so on), it is 66,000 times more powerful than the sun, and is the brightest star in Orion. -Source
The Manhattan Municipal Building at 1 Centre Street corresponds to Rigel. It is one of the largest governmental buildings in the world.

1 Centre is surmounted by a gilded statue, the second largest statue in all of New York City, second only to the Statue of Liberty.
If Orion/Osiris is mapped to lower Manhattan then surely the Statue of Liberty is Sirius, star of Isis. Mark Gray made this connection and Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval have made a strong case in their book Talisman that the State of Liberty actually depicts the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis. I notice that her crown of 7 rays and the base star of 11 points she stands on resonates with the proportions of the Great Pyramid which are 7:11 from height to base.
I worked at a 7:11 convenience store in high school and probably at the real 7:11 in a past life.
The statue entitled Civic Fame at the top of 1 Centre was constructed the same way as the Statue of Liberty, in sheets with a hollow core. Any goddess standing on the moon resonates with Isis.

The model who posed for the above sculpture of Civic Fame was a fascinating and tragic figure named Audrey Munson.
Audrey Munson (1891-1996) was an American model and actress, known variously as “Miss Manhattan,” “the Exposition Girl,” and “American Venus.” She was the model or inspiration for more than 15 statues in New York City. -Source
Munson was the first woman to appear fully nude on film. She posed for three-quarters of all the sculptures for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) in San Francisco. I used to love to go on walks at the magnificent Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, the last remaining architectural remnant of the PPIE. I never knew the weeping women atop the dome and colonnade were based on Audrey Munson until now.

Here is Audrey Munson in Star Maiden from the PPIE, synchromystically resonating with Rigel.
Munson lived for 65 years in a psychiatric facility before she died at the age of 104. She was a falling star, a weeping woman resonating with all the 6′s and 5′s in this post and The Snowflake and the Flower.
This just in…
Fellow researcher Jan Thulstrup read this post and then discovered something amazing that ties right in. There is a star shaped fort on Governor’s island called Fort Columbus.
Governor’s island is legally part of Manhattan and is less than a half mile from its tip.
The line bisecting Fort Columbus goes directly to the Tridents sculpture inside the atrium of the 9/11 Memorial that I wrote about in my Freedom Tower post.
But most incredible are the bearings: the line going from the center of Fort Columbus to the Tridents has a bearing of 6.5° true north. Measure it yourself using the Ruler tool in Google Earth.
Bearings are measured clockwise from 0° which points true north.
The diagonal line from tip to tip of the star has a bearing of 51.84° true north. The Great Pyramid faces have slope angles of 51.84°. My mind is blown. Again.
