I was going through some old paperwork last night and came across a folder of memorabilia from high school. I had a good laugh at this letter:
I don’t remember that test and unfortunately I have retained very little Spanish, even though I went on to take 4 years of classes. What kind of superhuman effort did I exert on September 21, 1984 to warrant a letter sent home to my parents? Maybe my superpowers shine brighter on the equinox?
That’s mildly amusing but here’s what really got me laughing out loud:
The address of my high school is 33333 Golden Lantern. Is the address some kind of alchemical statement? Is golden lantern a euphemism for the pineal gland? See my post on 33.
The phone number was (714) 496-6666, back when most of southern California was all in one area code. But look at that: five sixes all in a row. Did I go to an illuminati high school?
If you have read much of my blog, my book, or watched my two films you will probably be smiling at this “coincidence.”
Dana Hills High School is in Dana Point, which is in southern Orange County, the namesake of a TV series called The O.C. (which I have never seen).
Dana Point’s population was most recently measured at 33,351 (2010 census). Just 18 more people than the perfect 33,333. Dana Point covers a land area of 6.5 square miles. Do you know what I have discovered about 6 and 5?

I recognize the scenic vantage point from where this wikipedia photo was taken. I remember carefully reading Plato’s Republic during the summer of 1984 (yes, I am white and nerdy), sitting in a gazebo at the end of Blue Lantern where this photo was taken.
The streets in Dana Point’s historic core are named after colored lanterns, used by sailing ships 200 years ago to advertise their wares. However, this was only done in 1930 in the spirit of faux romanticism that real estate developers succumbed to when they laid down the bones of this town. The United States is so young, especially the West Coast.
I was just looking at Dana Point in Google Earth and decided to look at neighboring Laguna Beach, which, by the way, was the name of another awful TV series.
I zoomed in on the hospital where I was born and smiled again because it is located at 33°30′ north latitude.

Was my DNA genetically engineered by the Anunnaki? They must have messed up because I was born without both of my legs below the knee and also without my right hand. I’ve walked on artificial legs since I was 18 months old. All through my childhood I needed a new pair of legs every year or so as I was growing (and less frequently now that I am an adult). As you might imagine this turned out to be a financial burden for my parents.
Luckily for me the Shriners donated funds to have a few pairs of legs made in my childhood. You know those guys who wear those funny Fez hats driving around in miniature cars powered by lawnmower engines at parades? Oh well maybe you don’t know. They do that to “promote a positive Shriner image to the public.” Is this the most effective method you can think of to accomplish this goal?

His Fez says Syrian Corvettes. The word corvette comes from a sailing warship with one tier of guns. But why Syrian? I must be missing something.
The Shrine used to be called Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, but in 2010 they changed their name to Shriners International which describes itself as “a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth.” Life magazine described the Shriners in 1938 as “among secret lodges the No. 1 in prestige, wealth, and show.”
Up until recently, Shriners had to complete the Scottish Rite’s 33 degrees (or the York Rite degrees) before being eligible for membership. Shriners are therefore a brotherhood of elite freemasons at the top of the veritable pyramid.
I traced the Fez hats back to Fez Morocco where the red dye used on the funny hats made from crimson berries originally came from.
Fes aka Fez, Morocco
I searched for Fez in Google Earth (which is also spelled Fes) and its latitude comes up at precisely 34.033333° N. I have never seen any city whose label comes up with such a perfect string of threes.
Children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.
The Shriners are doing good things for disabled children and that is outstanding in my book.
Back to the O.C. just one last time. Just 4.44 miles from my birthplace is the Chet Holifield Federal Building, known locally as The Ziggurat. It is a 7 stepped pyramidal complex that was built in what was the middle of nowhere around the time I was born. Now it is in the middle of a town called Aliso Viejo that didn’t exist when I was in high school. The Ziggurat is owned by the US Government and the Department of Homeland Security controls the top floor. Also the IRS shares part of the building. Death and taxes. When I was in high school the place was a ghost town and I learned to drive a stick-shift in its vast and empty parking lot. It is located at 33°33’33″ N.
Chet Holifield Federal Building at 33°33’33″ N.
Interestingly the Ziggurat was designed by architect William Pereira who also designed the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, but that is another story.
Here are a few fun facts:
The number of minutes in 33°33′ = 2013.
The Sun is 333,000 times more massive than the Earth.
33.33… x 33.33… = 1111.1111…
The Earth-Moon system’s center of mass, called the barycenter, is an average of 1111 miles beneath the surface of the Earth.
The Earth’s orbital velocity is 1111 miles per minute.
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: 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):
Table of Contents:
Chapter 1 – The Decimal System and the Ennead
Chapter 2 – Metrology
Chapter 3 – Measuring Time
Chapter 4 – The Honeycomb and the Apple
Chapter 5 – Key Numbers
Chapter 6 – Number Patterns
Chapter 7 – Taxonomy of Encoded Structures
Chapter 8 – Encoded Structures
Chapter 9 – Behind the Curtain
About the Author
Here is the book’s introduction which should give you a feel for the subject matter:
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.
Cortes Island, British Columbia, Canada
I listened to the recent Red Ice interview with Christopher Knight and Alan Butler and discovered they have published a new book in Feb 2011 called Before the Pyramids. They have discovered amazing things about Washington DC in this book. I would have included this info in Secrets in Plain Sight but I finished my videos back in Oct 2010.
I’ve ordered their book and while I’m waiting for it to arrive I read a summary at the authors book site. After emailing the authors and reading this summary two nights ago I was led through a series of amazing coincidences yesterday relating to a number of ellipses (ovals), among other things. Here we go again.
Knight and Butler discovered that the width of Ellipse Park in front of the White House is 366 megalithic yards, a unit the authors have described at length in several of their previous books (written together and individually), all of which I highly recommend reading.
One megalithic yard = 82.966 cm
I’m going to call the distance of 366 megalithic yards an Ellipse for convenience.
Knight and Butler have discovered that many of the significant points in DC are located in units of whole Ellipses from the center of Ellipse Park and from the center of the Capitol Dome.
A stone block was found at the center of Ellipse Park marking Thomas Jefferson’s meridian drawn through the center of the District of Columbia.
The triangle drawn from the center of Ellipse Park to the center of the Capitol Dome to the center of the Pentagon and back to the center of Ellipse Park measures exactly 33 Ellipses. The Pentagon was placed where it is by FDR who was himself the 32nd president of the United States and a 32nd degree freemason.
More important to my research is the line Knight and Butler drew from the center of Ellipse Park to Ground Zero (the place where the Great Spherical Caryatid once stood between the Twin Towers, see my 110-111 post) in NYC. See also my New York City Part 1 video.
This distance is precisely 1080 Ellipses. My jaw is on the floor.
“The distance from the center of the Ellipse in Washington DC to the center of the Ground Zero site in New York is 366 Megalithic Yards X 1080. Maybe this doesn’t look too impressive but it is. The distance between the Ellipse center and Ground Zero is 3 Megalithic degrees of arc of the polar circumference of the Earth! This measurement has the same relationship as all the others we have pointed out in Washington DC, it is divisible by units of 366 Megalithic Yards. Nor is there anything vague or approximate about this. Anyone can try it for themselves and they will discover that it is exact!” -Source
I identified 1080 as the number of the Moon in my Stonehenge episode as the Moon’s radius is 1080 miles. But recently I’ve discovered another interesting parallel. The mean orbital distance of Venus from the Sun is 108,000,000 kilometers. And Venus ties in more closely with what I’ll be revealing later in this post.
World Trade Center, NYC
This video shows the memorial service that took place on 11 Sept 2002 at ground zero, one year after the tragic events of 9/11.
What do you see? The Eye of Horus is formed by the marching people arranged in an ellipse surrounding a ring representing ground zero.
Directly below ground zero is the Chambers Street / WTC subway station that was flooded in 9/11 but not destroyed. The 1998 installation entitled Oculus was created in this station by the artists Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel. It features a series of mosaics of single eyes on the walls (really creepy)…

…and a massive mosaic on the floor…

The floor mosaic is hard to perceive in photos in the space. Two columns interrupt the mosaic. The artists’ website shows the complete design as an ellipse with an eye in the center.
The Eye of Horus is above and below ground zero, or more succinctly As Above, So Below.
Just a little side note: recall that the title of this installation is oculus which in English means “a round or eyelike opening or design” that reminds me of the oculus in the top of the Roman Pantheon which I discuss in my Rome Part 2 video.
The sound oc in the word oculus is shared by the word occult meaning hidden.
“The Cult of Oc: The ancient ciphers for the sun, a circle, and the moon, a crescent, when joined form the word oc. “To occult” means to eclipse, as when the moon obscures the sun during a total eclipse. Oc is also the root of the Latin word for eye – oculus. So the occult is the cult of the celestial sun-moon eye whose wink darkens the day.” -Source
In the time of the Cathars, before they were ruthlessly murdered in the Albigensian Crusade, the language spoken in southern France was called Oc. The region became known as Langue d’Oc or Language of Oc (today’s Languedoc). The word oc meant yes in this now dead tongue.
Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn
The floor mosaic depicts a series of concentric elliptical rings surrounding the eye at the center of a map of the greater New York metropolitan area. The eye is located at the center of Brooklyn.
New York metropolitan area
Mark Gray was intrigued by a post I made of the above floor mosaic on Facebook and wanted to know where the eye was located within Brooklyn. He pointed out that it appears to be very close to Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn:
Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn
Grand Army Plaza consists of a series of concentric elliptical rings arranged as streets. The center contains the Bailey fountain which depicts Mer-people which I’ll write a future post on. It is the pupil within the eye.
Frederick Law Olmsted designed the plaza, the same man who designed Central Park in Manhattan which I revealed has occult dimensions in my New York Part 1 video.
Just to the left of the pupil on the above image is the Soldiers and Sailor’s Memorial Arch:

This Roman style triumphal arch reminds me of the Arch of Septimus Severus in Rome, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in Paris.
Mark Gray posted the following image on my Facebook wall showing that Grand Army Plaza is an ellipse with 12 radiating spokes:
That correlates with the Arc de Triomphe which is another stargate I show in my Paris Part 2 video having 12 radiating streets representing the signs of the zodiac.
In that same video I revealed how Napoleon’s Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel is the center point of 12 radiating hedges terminated by an elliptical border which implies the following ellipse:
By the way the square hedges mark the foci of the ellipse and the ellipse itself is tangent to La Pyramide Inversée.
Brooklyn Public Library – Central Building
The building in the southeast corner of Grand Army Plaza is the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Building.
Here is the building’s facade:
The inscription on the right side of the building says, ”Here are enshrined the longing of great hearts and noble things that tower above the tide, the magic word that winged wonder starts, the garnered wisdom that never dies.” -Source
I find the reference to word magic fascinating. What a spell we are under.
The floor area of the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Building is 33,000 square meters. -Source
Clever to hide that number in square meters when the Imperial system of feet is used in the US. Here is a detail of the front entry:
The columns represent science on the north and art on the south. This north and south division mirrors the Twin Towers of the WTC, the columns of Boaz and Jachin in Solomon’s temple depicted in every Masonic Lodge in the world, and the most occulted symbol: the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
As Above So Below
The Eye of Horus actually comes from structures at the center of the human brain. The ancient Egyptians encoded the secrets of consciousness in plain sight.
“The similarities are not just uncanny – they are exact. Yet this is viewed as nothing more than a coincidence, because in modern thinking it is assumed that the Egyptians could not have had this knowledge. Thus we are blinded to the obvious. The Eye of Horus was also broken into six basic components, each representing a different sense; smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight and thought. The thalamus is the part of the human brain which translates all incoming signals from our senses. Could the symbolism of this be any clearer?” -Source
Thank you Mark for sending me this picture of some famous ellipses:
The Pythagorean monochord
“Kepler’s First Law states that the planets move in “ellipses” and that the Sun is not at the exact centre of their orbits. Each planet moves between a ‘perihelion’ point nearest the Sun and an ‘aphelion’ point furthest away. Kepler found that the angular velocities of all the planets closely correspond to musical intervals. When he compared the extremes for combined pairs of planets the results were even more marvellous, yielding the intervals of a complete scale in music.” -Mark Gray
Thank you to Martin who commented on my 110-111 post with a link to this image of MyCn18, a planetary nebula, which beautifully captures the moment of a star’s “death” where it looks out with the eye of God at the center of two ellipses at the center of a vesica pisces. See also planetary nebulas NGC7293 and M57.

Sacred geometry is universal.
An elite group has hijacked this universal fractal symbol of the Eye of God and twisted it into an agenda of global control.
The World Trade Center project was spearheaded by David Rockefeller, chairman of the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Development Association (DLMA) and his brother Nelson Rockefeller who was then governor of New York. Both brothers pushed hard for the project.
In 1958, the DLMA commissioned Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (one of the world’s largest architecture firms) to draw up plans for revitalizing Lower Manhattan. The plans, made public in 1960, called for a World Trade Center to be built on a 13-acre site along the East River. -Source
Notice that the Oculus floor mosaic under the WTC also depicts the Earth’s 7 continents around the periphery of the elliptical border. To me, all the continents arrayed around the All Seeing Eye seem to suggest a One World Order.
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
Consider Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan. At the center is a statue of Prometheus who is ringed by the ellipse of the zodiac.
Prometheus was a champion of mankind, known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals. Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. -Source

Prometheus has long been linked with Lucifer:
Lucifer and Prometheus is the title of a classic work of psychological literary criticism written by R.J. Zwi Werblowsky and published in 1952. In it, Werblowsky argues that the Satan of John Milton’s Paradise Lost became a disproportionately appealing character because of attributes he shares with the Greek Titan Prometheus. -Source
According to the 19th century founder of the Theosophical Society, Helena Blavatsky wrote:
The allegory of the fire of Prometheus is another version of the rebellion of the proud Lucifer [the light bringer], who was hurled down to the bottomless pit, or simply unto our Earth, to live as man.” -Blavatsky in The Secret Doctrine
The Lucifer – Venus connection:
In Latin from which the English word is derived, Lucifer means “light-bearer” (from the words lucem ferre). It was the name given to the dawn appearance of the planet Venus which heralds daylight. For this meaning, English generally uses the names “Morning Star” or “Day Star”, and rarely “Lucifer”.
The flags of many nations above the sculpture of Prometheus in Rockfeller Plaza reminds me of the flags of many nations outside the United Nations headquarters which I analyzed in my New York City Part 2 video.

John D. Rockefeller Jr. purchased 17 acres in midtown Manhattan and in 1946, through his son Nelson, donated it to the City of New York.
It is hard to imagine owning 17 acres in one of the most expensive places on earth let alone donating it. The United Nations must have been very important to the Rockefeller family.
Rockefeller Center is another 22 acres in Manhattan. Rockefeller Plaza is edged by Sixth and Fifth Avenues. This of course reminds me of 6/5 and everything in my Snowflake and the Flower post.
The ice rink in Rockefeller Plaza is very popular for some wintery family fun. The ice really threw me off until I remembered Dante’s Inferno.

You probably think of hell as hot but Dante embedded a certain someone in a lake of ice in the deepest 9th circle of hell.
This symbolism really makes you wonder: Who is the One World Order elite really working for?

Could it be…Satan? I couldn’t resist quoting Dana Carvey’s Church Lady from the old school of Saturday Night Live. I sense we need a little comic relief here. But really people, let’s wake up now and perceive more of the secrets which are encoded with such profusion in plain sight.
