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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

Kevin McMahon posted this graphic on Facebook today. He also discovered that it is 777.7 miles from Grant Park Buckingham Fountain to the entrance of the IPG at a heading of 314° true north.

If you saw SIPS Volume 1, you might recall that Stonehenge has its station stones which describe a 5×12 rectangle.

Stonehenge is also 33.33° from Solomon’s Temple.

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.

Esoteric-Metro555

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.

EarthNight555

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.

Olympia Sync Summit

I am asking for your help to fund this event through Indiegogo. I will discuss synchronicity, Secrets in Plain Sight, and my forthcoming book, “Quantification” at the Olympia Sync Summit, on the auspicious dates of 8/8 – 8/9 this summer. Please join me and many other Sync Book authors and add to what is shaping up to be an unforgettable experience.

In case you didn’t know it, I contributed a chapter to the Sync Book 2 back in 2012. It’s still worth checking out!

The Sync Book 2

I’m looking forward to giving my first public talk at the summit and hope to see you there!

Taking Measure

I’ve written a book called Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture, and Consciousness and have self-published it both as a book and as an ebook so you can read it on paper or on screen, however you prefer. Both editions have the same content. The physical book has high resolution black and white images whereas the ebook has color images sized for the screen.

I educated myself on the plethora of ebook formats and settled on EPUB after I discovered the free Calibre software. Calibre is the Swiss Army knife of ebooks, allowing you to not only read ebooks on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, but Calibre can also translate the EPUB into over a dozen popular formats so you can read my ebook on iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches, Kindles, SONY readers, Nooks, Kobos, and many other electronic devices.

Taking Measure cover    Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture, and Consciousness reveals patterns emergent in our universe from quantum to astronomic scales. Spatial and temporal codes appear in unexpected places, from our units of measure to the relationships between celestial bodies. Geometric and numeric encoding appears in architecture, in urban design, and in alignments across the Earth. Does this happen by pure coincidence, has it been done to preserve knowledge, or is it an ancient form of magic that continues to this day? Are the synchronicities we experience in our personal lives manifestations of these same patterns? This book takes a new look at familiar structures in the tangible world but also engages with the invisible world, including the question of consciousness.

The cover is the Flammarion woodcut, drawn by an anonymous artist in 1888. I colorized this public domain image in Photoshop. The image very much symbolizes the transformative journey that this book can take you on, by taking measure of the secrets in plain sight.

The book/ebook features 9 chapters (that’s no accident because exploring the quality of the number 9 is one of the book’s themes):

About the Author

Here is the book’s introduction which should give you a feel for the subject matter:

Introduction:

I began this book as a way of taking measure of my two films, Secrets In Plain Sight Volumes 1 & 2, a series very densely packed with information which runs for more than 5 hours. Many viewers watch the films over and over and have picked up different things on each viewing. This process takes a lot of time and I recognize that people are very busy these days so I wanted to distill into a small book the essentials of what the films have uncovered. The written format encourages depth of analysis and synthesis.
By taking measure of the objective world of things from the quantum to architectural to astronomic scales, I have observed numerical patterns emerging from the scientific data. This book presents numeric codes unfolding in space and time in many unexpected places, from our units of measure to the relationships between celestial bodies. Geometric and numeric encoding is also explored in cities, in architecture, in alignments across the Earth, and in the human body. We start in the exterior objective world and the evidence gradually leads us into the subjective world within.
As I set off writing I didn’t realize the extent to which this book would clarify my own thinking and take my awareness in new directions but that was the end result. I hope that by reading this book you will enjoy the journey and the expanded perspectives as much as I do.
