The Cosmic Sequence

The following set of numbers comprise what I call the cosmic sequence:

27, 54, 108, 216, 432, 864, 1728, 3456

Each successive term is double the value of the preceding term.

The first term, 27, is equal to three cubed. Pythagoras said that three cubed represents the cosmos.

In Buddhism the traditional Great Retreat lasts for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days and the number 27 represents the highest level of knowledge in Rūpaloka, known as the world of form.

In the Kabbalah there are 27 letters, corresponding to 27 channels of communication with God. The Hebrew numeric system is additive, requiring 27 symbols (1-9, 10-90, 100-900), emphasizing formation from three nines.

There are 27 signs of the zodiac in Vedic astrology. See here.

The human hand has 27 bones…

…and strangely, many popular musicians are members of the 27 Club, meaning they died in their 27th year of life. 27 Club members include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and many others.

54

There are 54 years in a triple Saros cycle. In other words, it takes 54 years for the Sun, Moon and Earth to return to nearly identical celestial geometry such that an eclipse occurs on the same day and at the same time.

The Moon perfectly covers the Sun during a total solar eclipse.

A perfect round of golf scores 54 points, although this level of perfection has never been achieved in competition.

“I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.” -Annika Sörenstam

By the way, many golf balls are made with 432 dimples.

The Rubik’s Cube has 54 colored faces, a perfect cosmic puzzle.

1728

In SIPS Volume 1 (Jerusalem part 1 episode) I show how the cubit that measures Jerusalem measures 1.728 feet. 1728 such cubits measure the sacred geometry of the city. The X’s in the diagram mark the holiest spots in Christianity (Golgotha) and Judaism (Holy of Holies inside Solomon’s temple).

Jerusalem

The New Jerusalem dimensioned in the Book of Revelation is a cube having a volume of 1728 billion cubic furlongs.

3456

The Earth’s polar radius is 3456 royal miles (99.99%), where a royal mile is 8/7 of a statute mile.

This straight flush of numbers reminds me of the following terrestrial connections in my post It’s About Time:

As I blogged in my post on 432 Park Avenue, physicist Ray Tomes discovered that powers of 34560 proportion the universe at vastly different scales:

  • If we take the average distance between moons and multiply it by a factor of 34560, we get the average distance between planets.
  • Take the average distance between planets, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between stars.
  • Multiply the average distance between stars by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between galaxies.
  • Take the average distance between galaxies, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the size of the known Universe.

David Wilcock summarized Ray Tomes’ research here.

It’s About Time

In SIPS Volume 1, I revealed an alignment connecting DC, NYC, and Stonehenge…

…and profiled the research of John Michell and Robin Heath in the greater landscape temple surrounding Stonehenge…

Lundy island is the origin point of the greater temple that includes Stonehenge. The center of Lundy island is 123.4 miles, or 108 Egyptian royal miles, due West from Stonehenge.

Last night I had a subtle inspiration to draw a line from the center of Lundy at the precise latitude of Stonehenge to a specific location within Mexico City. The line I drew in Google Earth has a length of 8645864 m. You can download the kmz file here and see for yourself.

This distance encodes the number 864 twice. 864 is a key number I have blogged about in my previous post on 432 Park and written about extensively in my book Taking Measure.

LundyAlignment

The line passes right over Boston, a stone’s throw from the location of the original tea party…

Boston-Alignment

…and continues over Manhattan—just 200 meters from the United Nations complex…

NYC-Alignment

…then passes directly over the White House in Washington DC…

DC-Alignment

…and finally terminates at the center of the 330 foot diameter Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

OurLadyGuadalupe555

Just think about that for a moment. How likely is it that one line should pass over five sites of such global significance? I can’t begin to calculate the odds. This alignment seems to be about leaders, from the ancients who created Stonehenge and its greater temple, to the founding fathers of America, to the leaders of all nations, to the President of the United States, all the way to the Great Mother.

Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego at the site in 1531 and today the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is the most visited Marian shrine in the world. It is visited by millions of people every year (especially on her feast day of 12/12, the date I published this blog post) and is considered to be the national shrine of Mexico. The pilgrims are paying their respects to the image of the Virgin that was said to be miraculously emblazoned on Juan Diego’s peasant cloak almost 500 years ago.

This icon of the “Queen of Heaven” as she is known in Roman Catholicism (an epithet used millennia earlier for Isis) is located at the center of the shrine so that it can be seen from any point within the modern building which accommodates up to 50,000 people at a time.

The image of the Virgin of Guadalupe has been described as a representation of the Woman of the Apocalypse, a figure from Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation that is subject to a wide variety of interpretations.

Washington DC and New York City

The capital of the United States and the empire’s most populous city have a very special relationship in space. By virtue of the fact of where these cities are on the Earth, they encode a series of secrets in plain sight when structures within these cities are precisely compared. For example:

The distance from the George Washington National Masonic Memorial to the Statue of Liberty is 333 km.

GWNMM-SOL-555

This is amazing on multiple levels. The George Washington National Masonic Memorial in Alexandria Virginia (occupying the lower corner of the District of Columbia’s original diamond) is a replica of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt. The modern structure’s 333 foot height echoes the Scottish Rite’s 33 degrees. Jan Thulstrup pointed out on Facebook that the Statue of Liberty’s base star is rotated 33 degrees with respect to true north. I noticed that the rotated arrangement also looks like the Templar flag or cross of St. John.

SOL-33

In antiquity, the island just off the coast of Alexandria was known as Pharos although today it is joined to the mainland. According to Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval in Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith,

“There was a temple dedicated to Isis-Pharia near the Pharos [the lighthouse on the island of Pharos]. Apparently also her colossal statue once stood directly outside the Pharos, and is likely to have been perceived as part of the lighthouse complex. In Roman times Isis was frequently known as Stella Maris, i.e., ‘Star of the Sea’, and the same epithet has, for a very long while, been applied by Christians to the Virgin Mary…The connection between Sothis-Sirius and Isis-Pharia of the Pharos is probably due to the beacon of light from the lighthouse as it was seen from afar by sailors approaching the harbour, and may explain why the Pharos lighthouse was sometimes called ‘the second sun’—a term used by the ancient Egyptians for the star Sirius.” Talisman pp. 202-3

The second sun epithet reminds me of Walter Cruttenden’s cutting-edge astronomical research I presented in SIPS Volume 2 showing how our solar system and the Sirius system are gravitationally bound together in a binary star system.

The Statue of Liberty is itself a symbol of Isis for those who have the eyes to see this secret in plain sight. Her torch was literally the Star of the Sea as seen by millions of immigrants coming to America by ship. The correlations between the Statue of Liberty and the George Washington National Masonic Memorial lighthouse are amazing!

FYI: I pointed out in SIPS Volume 1 that the Statue of Liberty also encodes the 7:11 proportions of the cross section of Great Pyramid with her 7 rayed crown, standing on an 11 pointed base. The statue’s height from heel to top of head is 111′-1″, echoing the Great Pyramid’s 1/11th of a mile height and its 1-1/11′ pyramidion height (according to Richard Heath’s metrology in Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization).

The distance from the Washington Monument to the New Year’s Eve Ball in Times Square is 333 km.
I wrote about One Times Square in 2011 but have discovered amazing new correlations.

WashMMT-TimeBall

The height of the Washington Monument is just 3/8″ shy of the perfect 555’5.5″ which just happens to also equal 6666″ if you round up to the nearest inch. The pyramidion measures 55’5.5″ or 666″ in height. The Washington Monument’s dimensions are a play of 6′s and 5′s.

Sync: the time ball is a geodesic sphere composed of hexagrams and pentagons, 6′s and 5′s.

The New Year’s Eve Ball Fact Sheet details the ball’s design. The time ball is covered with 2688 Waterford crystal triangles, a number that I find very interesting because the square root of 2688 is 51.85…and 51.85° (equivalent to 51°51′) is the slope angle of the Great Pyramid.

The fact sheet also states that the ball is illuminated with 8064 red, 8064 blue, 8064 green, and 8064 white Philips Luxeon Rebel light emitting diodes. There are those numbers again, 8-6-4. How appropriate for a glowing time ball!

The Sun’s diameter is 864,000 miles (99.8%). One Earth rotation is divided into 86,400 seconds—that is 24 hours exactly.

So why is the distance between these two monuments to 6 and 5 equal to 333 km? Perhaps this resonates with a fact I brought forward in Taking Measure:

Earth’s polar circumference = 6/5 x 33,333,333 meters (99.9%)

In case you don’t understand the sublime significance of 6′s relationship with 5, I invite you to read Cubits, the Snowflake and the Flower, and for the whole story, Taking Measure.

Jan Thulstrup observed that the number of verses in the Bible, 31104, is equal to 864 x 36. I recall that the sum of the numbers 1-36 is 666, so we appropriately have the number of the Sun/Son 864 and the infamous number of the beast 666 encoded in the number of verses in the Bible. Equally amazing is the following mathematical expression:

Verses-in-Bible-555

The ball drop is watched by approximately one billion people on television at midnight every New Year’s Eve. Before we had television New Year’s was personified by Father Time in editorial cartoons in newspapers such as the New York Times. Long before that he was known as the Grim Reaper, Chronos, Cronus, Saturn, and way back in ancient Egypt he was known as Osiris.

Sculpture on the Library of Congress in the Rotunda Clock

Rotunda Clock on the Library of Congress

Many depictions of the personified New Year showed an old man holding an infant, balancing immanent death with new life. To me this symbol is encoded in the relationship of 6 to 5, literally in life and death, or figuratively as rebirth within life. 6/5 is the marriage of Osiris and Isis, the alchemy in the reconciliation of opposites.

The New Year’s Eve Ball in Times Square is 5.55 miles from the Statue of Liberty at a bearing of 33 degrees true north.

The distance from the House of the Temple in DC to the Grand Lodge of New York in Manhattan is 330.33 km. That is 1733 16th Street, N.W., Washington DC to 71 West 23rd Street, New York

The distance from the Great Pyramid to St. Mary’s chapel in Glastonbury, UK is 3652422 meters. One year lasts 365.2422 days. See SIPS Volume 1 for more on the amazing significance of St. Mary’s Chapel.

Glastonbury-GP

Keith Hunter has brilliantly deciphered how the year is encoded in the Great Pyramid’s location. He shows how Earth’s latitudinal circumference at the location of the Great Pyramid divided by the pyramid’s base perimeter equals 36524.22 feet, a number 100 times the tropical year. He also shows how the height of the Great Pyramid is derived from the Earth’s orbital period, among other metrological wonders.

Here is another “coincidence”…

WhiteHouse-Versailles555

The distance from the center of the White House, USA to the center of the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, France is 3330.33 nautical miles. This alignment bisects Versailles so it appears that the Sun King’s complex was designed to encode this alignment.

…and another…

Silbury-Shard-555

The distance from Silbury Hill, UK, the tallest neolithic structure in Europe to the tallest modern building in Europe, the Shard in London, is 123,456 meters or 66.66 nautical miles.

…and another…

TempleMount-Kaaba-555

The distance from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (holiest place in Judaism and second holiest place in Islam) to the Kaaba in Mecca (holiest place in Islam) is 1,234,567 meters or 666.6 nautical miles.

…and another…

Teotihuacan-Heliopolis2

The distance from the end of the Avenue of the Dead at Teotihuacan, Mexico to the oldest standing obelisk in the world in Heliopolis, Egypt is 12,345,678 meters or 6,666 nautical miles. I never knew there was this curious metrological relationship between meters and nautical miles until stumbling upon these examples.

On a larger level, consider the following mathematical relationship:

Kepler's-Third-Law-555

This is Kepler’s Third Law of Planetary Motion applied to our solar system. You won’t normally see it written this way, but I rewrote the equation to highlight an interesting pattern, the repetitive sixes. Check it yourself with a scientific calculator! Note: AU stands for astronomical unit, the mean distance from the Earth to the Sun.

I am amazed that the rather remote island where I live in Canada, named Cortés after the infamous conquistador, is located 864 miles from the Transamerica Pyramid, the tallest building in San Francisco. I mentioned in SIPS Volume 1 that including its pyramidion and mast, the Transamerica Pyramid is 864 feet high. The Transamerica Pyramid is 8641 km from One Canada Square which for some years was the tallest building in London, England. One Canada Square was itself originally designed to be 864 feet high.

In my opinion, all of these things are so far beyond coincidence. What kind of intelligence has the capacity to encode precise relationships using our units of measure in the locations of temples and cities both ancient and modern? Wouldn’t that intelligence have to be eternal, meaning outside the flow of time?

Eternity is in love with the productions of time. -William Blake

Consider the possibility that time, space and matter might arise in awareness rather than the other way around. Are you a separate-self that is for a brief moment inhabiting a universe, or is all this synchronicity a clue pointing to how you, awareness, imagined your matrix playing out in time?

Maybe you have encoded these curious coincidences as gentle clues to help those “separate-selves” who are ready to wake up to who they really are?

“Before the world was, consciousness was. In consciousness it comes into being, in consciousness it lasts and into pure consciousness it dissolves. At the root of everything is the feeling “I am”. The state of mind “there is a world” is secondary, for to be, I do not need the world, the world needs me.” -Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

“Past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” -Albert Einstein

In 33°33′ there are a total of 2013 minutes. In 2014, we lift the veil on 33 and will experience whatever comes next.

Mars, Saturn, and Spica

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.

Eiffel tower

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.

Champ de Mars in Paris as Vitruvian Mars

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.

Mars mapping to Paris

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.

Mars in Ecole Militaire detail

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.

Extended-pentagram

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.

15 parts vitruvian man

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.

Immanuel Velikovsky equated Saturn with Osiris in his book In the Beginning.

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

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.

Danebury hill fort

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.

Cydonia Avebury connection

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.”
