Sixes are structural.

“The comb of the hive-bee, as far as we can see, is absolutely perfect in economizing labour and wax.” -Charles Darwin


Euclid recognized that the hexagon shape makes most efficient use of material in space.

The Pantheon dome is an Roman architectural wonder made possible by its interior honeycomb structural ribbing.

Modern man-made honeycomb materials are widely used in the aerospace industry because they offer high strength-to-weight ratios. Speaking of aerospace, the Cassini spacecraft photographed the north pole of Saturn in 2013 and humanity got a glimpse of an enormous persistent hexagonal pattern in this gas giant.



I have had a series of epiphanies recently regarding the structure of the Earth. It all started with my post Deep Challenges when I found patterns of sixes in the measures of the highest and largest mountains, the deepest place on Earth, and Easter Island.


Incidentally, a line from Easter Island to the obelisk in St. Peter’s Square incredibly bisects the whole Vatican complex. The name “Easter Island” was given by the island’s first recorded European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on Easter Sunday, 5 April 1722. WTF?


On the flipside, Urban Asplund discovered that Africa is 66.6° wide from its westernmost point in Dakar to the easternmost projection of Somalia. Africa is also 66.6° high from its southernmost point to the place where the line running due north hits the Mediterranean, near Benghazi.


The Earth’s axis is also tilted 66.6° (90 – 23.4 = 66.6) from the ecliptic and travels along it at 66600 miles/hour (99.9%).

South America is 66.6° long along a north-south path that passes through Mt. Aconcagua, its highest peak. Urban Asplund discovered this one too.


The distance between the tips of South America and Africa is ~6660 km.


North America is 66.66° wide from the tip of Florida at Key Largo to the farthest place the US reaches into the Bearing Straight, Yesterday Island. The adjacent island, Tomorrow Island, is owned by Russia and is only a stone’s throw away on the other side of the International Dateline. Strange but true! Sea level changes over time, the Earth’s continents move, land subsides and uplifts. All of these correlations are the situation right NOW.


Eurasia is also structured with sixes but this time the measurement is 6066 nautical miles from the southwesternmost point in Europe, the lighthouse at Cape St. Vincent, to the symbolic Haicang bridge in Xiamen China. The lines goes very close to, but not perfectly through Astana, Kazakhstan.


“Cape St. Vincent was already sacred ground in Neolithic times, as standing menhirs in the neighborhood attest. The ancient Greeks called it Ophiussa (Land of Serpents), inhabited by the Oestriminis and dedicated here a temple to Heracles. The Romans called it Promontorium Sacrum (or Holy Promontory). They considered it a magical place where the sunset was much larger than anywhere else. They believed the sun sank here hissing into the ocean, marking the edge of their world.” -Source

That’s apropos considering how I previously connected snakes and sixes in Serpent Wisdom.

In 1541, European traders (mainly Portuguese) first visited Xiamen, which was China’s main port in the nineteenth century for exporting tea. Funny that they were Portuguese, considering where the opposite endpoint is in this measure of the maximum width of Eurasia. The Portuguese really got around back then!

All these sixes remind me of something I noticed in the microcosm of matter itself. Every proton in the universe is made of 2 up quarks and 1 down quark. The charge on the up quark is +0.666666… and the charge on the down quark is -0.333333…, netting a charge of +0.999999…, polarized oppositely to the electron. The neutron has 1 up quark and 2 down quarks as you can see, netting a zero charge.


In the macrocosm, I noticed the equation that governs Earth’s gravitational sphere of influence is all threes. The Sun’s mass is 333000 times greater than Earth’s mass. AU stands for astronomical unit, the mean distance from the Earth to the Sun.


Repetitive sixes and threes suggest triangles. This leads me finally to another epiphany (e-π-Φ-ny) I had, that the infinitesimal gap in what would otherwise be a perfect Pythagorean triangle connecting e, π, and Φ suggests the question, “Why can’t we ever rationalize the transcendental?”

This mystery is drawn to scale

This mystery is drawn to scale

Logically, the answer is that it is an irreducible eternal mystery, and I’m down with that.

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.

Dome of the Tablets

Dome of the Tablets from 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.

Michell's sacred geometry of Jerusalem

Michell’s sacred geometry of Jerusalem

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:


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


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.


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.”

La Jérusalem nouvelle. Le Fleuve de Vie. c1047

La Jérusalem nouvelle. Le Fleuve de Vie. c1047

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.


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.


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.


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.


The sacred geometry of Jerusalem (1728 cubits of 1.728 feet each) is encoded in our very units of measure, a secret in plain sight. One cubic foot = 1728 cubic inches.

The Earth’s diameter is 7920 miles. 7920 inches = 1 furlong. 17280 furlongs = 2160 miles. The Moon’s diameter is 2160 miles. We are living in the ‘heavenly’ New Jerusalem…

Deep Challenges

My research presents you with a series of challenges to your world-view. With discoveries like the 3333 mile distance between the ruins of Heliopolis and Mount Everest, you see either: (a) meaningless coincidence that you can immediately dismiss or (b) evidence of an advanced geodetic and metrological knowledge that is out of place with everything we know about ancient culture, or (c) something else. If you choose explanation (b), how do you reconcile it?

Heliopolis Everest

Urban Asplund emailed me with the data that the distance from Giza to Mount Kilimanjaro is 33.33°. I verified this fact in Google Earth, and I recommend you do this also with all of the distances and alignments I mention so you can see for yourself. Repeatability is what makes this science rather than superstition. Hopefully you will appreciate the research rationally and perhaps even be enticed to start your own.

Giza Kilimanjaro

The quoted distance isn’t to the summit, but to the side of the mountain. Still, it is accurate to say that the distance between Giza and Mount Kilimanjaro is 33.33°.

I discovered some time ago that the distance from Stonehenge to Solomon’s Temple is the same 33.33° distance. Of course Solomon’s Temple is long gone, but all three Abrahamic religions tend to agree that it was somewhere on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and it falls entirely within that quoted distance.

Stonehenge Solomon's Temple

The Great Pyramid of Giza encodes 3333 inches inside it. This is evident if you simply inscribe an equilateral triangle within its elevation. So the fascination with Threes goes back at least to ancient Egypt.

However, this challenges our understanding of the so-called “English” system of measurement. Even if you take explanation (a) and reject this as a coincidence, isn’t it odd that St. Paul’s Cathedral is 555.5′ or 6666″ long or that the Washington Monument is 555.5′ or 6666″ high? These coincidences keep piling up quite inconveniently for world-view (a).

So if you are going with explanation (b), then it seems unavoidably like the ancient Egyptians were using inches, feet, and miles. However, the Great Pyramid also encodes 10π in meters…

"Ten Pies" from Quantification

…and even encodes the speed of light using the system of degrees/minutes/seconds and the metric system.

Asplund made this connection and I made the graphic:

"Mountains of Light"

“Mountains of Light”

The Louvre Pyramid is 481 km from the summit of Mont Blanc and Mont Blanc’s summit is 4810m above sea level. Mont Blanc is the highest summit in Europe. The Great Pyramid was 481 feet high when it was built and covered in gleaming polished Tura limestone casing stones, with joints so accurate they were practically invisible. The glass pyramid, the white mountain, and the gleaming pyramid all are expressions of the transmission or reflection of light. The numbers synchronize but they are a mismatch of kilometers, meters, and feet.

Egyptologists would call all of this utterly preposterous and I agree with them to the extent that it doesn’t make any sense from world-view (b). I can’t reconcile this out-of-place knowledge with what we know about ancient cultures so my world-view is necessarily (c), something else.

Consider the following facts. Heliopolis, the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Lighthouse of Virginia are all in an alignment. The distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria, also known as PARia-ISis (see Talisman by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval) to the Eiffel Tower in PARIS is 3033.33 km.



Asplund discovered that the distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria to the alignments of menhirs at Carnac is 3333.33 km. The distance from the Lighthouse of Alexandria to the Eiffel Tower is precisely 3033.33 km.

The distance from the tip of Eiffel Tower to the center of Sagrada Familia is exactly e million feet. The circumference of the Sun is e million miles (99.99%). Euler’s constant e is one of the most important numbers in mathematics.

"Mil e On"

“Mil e On”

All these resonators needling the Earth remind me of acupuncture and needling the human body. If they are doing that on the macro scale then they are doing it along great circles and encoding very precise distances.


The replica lighthouse in Alexandria, Virginia (give me a break) is 333 feet in height. Scottish rite freemasons seem to be in on all of this with 32, the highest degree one earns, and the 33° being by invitation only.

Lighthouse of Alexandria, Virginia aka George Washington National Masonic Memorial (333' height)

However, the Sun disc has an angular size that varies between 32 and 33° of arc. This seems to be beyond conspiracy, unless the conspiracy includes the division of a circle into 360°, which goes back at least to ancient Babylon, which admittedly is located at 32°32’32″N. Don’t forget Homeland Security’s Babylonian Ziggurat in southern California located at 33°33’33″N where I learned to drive. Right. See Memorabilia.

I do not work for Homeland Security, the CIA, FBI, NSA, KGB, or the DMV. In fact I was kind of hoping you might donate or buy some of my books, videos or T-shirts to help me continue my research.

OK, here are a few more challenges. A line from the deepest part of the ocean, literally known as Challenger Deep, to Mount Everest continues to Abu Simbel, Egypt. Abu Simbel is the site of some exquisite rock-cut temples that remind me of Ellora. This is the “small temple”:

The distance from Abu Simbel to Everest is 3456 miles. 3456 is a term in what I call The Cosmic Sequence.

Abu Simbel Everest Challenger Deep

It appears to me like the ancient Egyptians somehow had global knowledge to line this up so beautifully. Maybe the following is really what is going on, who knows?


Here is another challenge from the deep:


The line from Everest to Challenger Deep continues on the other side of the planet to Easter Island. Furthermore it measures 6066 km from Everest to Challenger Deep and 6666 nautical miles from the deepest part of the ocean to Easter Island. It is 6660.6 km from Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the ocean, to Mauna Loa which is actually the world’s tallest mountain if measured from the sea floor.

I am talking about the structure of the Earth, not some crypto-Egypto conspiracy involving Satan, the Anunnaki and/or the Illuminati.

On the flipside, the distance from Easter Island to Heliopolis is 16180 km. Phi, the golden ratio is 1.6180…

Easter Island Nazca Heliopolis

Incidentally, the Nazca Lines are on this great circle and the distance from the famous Hummingbird geoglyph to the Great Pyramid is precisely 111.11°.

Asplund mentioned that he wanted to see how wide the Mediterranean was and so he measured it. It is 33.33° from Gibraltar to Beirut. That just about dimensions it perfectly, don’t you think?


In the same spirit I measured the distance between Hawaii and the mainland. Like Easter Island, Hawaii is one of the most isolated places on Earth. Just how isolated you ask? The shortest landfall is 33.0° from the Big Island to Point Arena, California.

Hawaii Point Arena

The last challenge is one Asplund posed to me and I added to. He found that the breadth and depth of Africa is 66.6° by 66.6°. I added the 66.6° angle between the north pole and the ecliptic to complete the highly improbable but factual picture of our planet. I almost forgot: spaceship Earth orbits at an average speed of 66600 miles/hour (99.9%).


While I was putting together this image last night, which was actually the first in my newfound green globe style, I was listening to music. iTunes reports that I have 51 GB of audio adding up to a whopping play time of 52:17:29:12 of listening pleasure.

Which long forgotten song or ancient melody do you suppose should happen to “randomly” play while I am comparing my image of Africa with the one earlier in this post on Kilimanjaro?

I’m sure there is no other song in my library or maybe even in the world having the words Africa and Kilimanjaro as lyrics. At least the gods have a sense of humor. I feel this play is supposed to be a comedy rather than a tragedy and we have all somehow lost the plot. Here is to meeting deep challenges with a sense of humor!

Speaking of, my architect friend Christian emailed me this image yesterday. Maybe this is what all those obelisks, lighthouses and menhirs are ultimately about after all.
