To truly understand the snowflake’s relationship to the flower we need some background.
The Hexagon / Hexagram
6 is the number of structure. The hexagon is used for structure at all scales in the universe from the microcosm to the macrocosm. Snowflakes are always hexagonal.
Consider something as simple as coins or cylinders packing in hexagonal rows. 6 fit perfectly around a central 7th with all of them touching. This is really the essence of structure.
Many crystals other than ice have hexagonal crystal systems:

Even the gaseous planet Saturn has hexagonal clouds on its north pole discovered by Voyager 1 in 1977 and verified again in 2006 by the Cassini spacecraft, meaning this hexagon is a persistent structure on the scale of a planet. Think about that.
In the microcosm living creatures such as bees create hexagonal houses and birthing chambers for their young. Hexagonal space frames make solid structures:

The Pentagon / Pentagram
5 is the number of life. All trees bearing fruit we can eat have blossoms with 5 petals. Apples have pentagrams inside that you’ll discover if you ever cut one across its equator. Perhaps Eve cut her first apple this way and received a bit of knowledge from the old tree?

Man’s body fits a pentagram and his parts are are interrelated with the golden proportion which is based on Phi.

The pentagram encodes the golden number Phi within itself fractally.
Bridging Macrocosm and Microcosm, Life and Structure
The relationship between 6 and 5 is the key.
”He who joins the hexagram and pentagram has solved half of the sacred secret.” -Eliphas Levi (19th century magician)
Digital art by Scott Onstott
In order of increasing scale from microcosm to macrocosm, what follows are some relationships I’ve observed between 6 and 5. I would love to hear from you if you discover any more.
The relationship between Phi and Pi is as follows:
1.2 x 1.6180 x 1.6180 = 3.1415
This relationship isn’t exact due to the transcendental nature of Pi. I see 6/5 more as a resonance built into the architecture of the universe.
The Daylight Standard
As you heat objects up they start to emit visible wavelengths appearing red, orange, yellow, white, and blue with increasing temperature. The average color of daylight is calibrated by a color temperature of 6500 degrees Kelvin (degrees above absolute zero). The International Commission on Illumination calls this standard Illuminant D65. Many professional photographers and graphic designers use D65 lamps for studio work where color accuracy is important.
Adenine is one of four bases that code for all life in deoxyribonucleic acid. Adenine’s molecular structure is based on a hexagonal ring bonded to a pentagonal ring:

Dimethyltryptamine is known as the Spirit Molecule because of its psychoactive qualities used for centuries by shamans to access altered states of consciousness. DMT is a naturally occurring compound found in some plants and in trace amounts in every human brain. DMT has a molecular structure based on a hexagonal ring bonded to a pentagonal ring:
Melatonin is secreted by the pinecone shaped pineal gland in the center of the human brain. The core of this molecule is a pentagonal ring bonded to a hexagonal ring. Melatonin is associated with sunlight and enlightenment.

There was a crop circle of this molecule that appeared on July 23rd, 2011 in Wiltshire UK. Look closely, it’s a perfect match.
See my post on Melatonin for more information.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter contributing to feelings of well-being and happiness. It also plays a role in memory and learning.
Hermetic Renaissance Art
Albrecht Durer’s Melancholia I is packed with Hermetic symbolism. The hidden controlling geometry is the wedding of hexagon and pentagon in the analysis that Franz Deckwitz presented to John Michell in 1979 and later published in The Dimensions of Paradise.
By the way, the infant at the center of the pentagram above reminds me of L’Enfant who designed the incredible symbolism in the streets and public spaces of Washington DC.
The Sublime Genius of Athanasius Kircher
Athanasius Kircher was an anomalous Jesuit and perhaps the most knowledgable person in the 17th century. Take a close look at the keys in this large image by Kircher and then come back here.
Wisdom for those who have eyes to see.
This little image is a detail from the larger image. Look, what’s written in the book? A pentagram and hexagram.
Errata: I mistakenly said that the rosary has 108 beads in my Stonehenge episode. Thank you to Joe Mullen for setting me straight: there are exactly 59 beads in the Rosary. Japa Mala prayer necklaces sacred to Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains have 108 beads (and so resonate with the Moon whose radius is 1080 miles).
The interesting thing that has come to light in my conversation with Joe is the total number of prayers the worshipper says with the Rosary:
There are 59 beads on the Rosary corresponding to 53 Hail Mary’s and 6 Our Fathers. 6 Gloria Patris for which there are no beads are also said in the Rosary bringing the total number of prayers to 65.
The Great Seal
The obverse of The Great Seal of the United States has 13 stripes (representing the colonies), 13 stars in the “glory” above the eagle’s head, 13 arrows, 13 leaves, and 13 olives. 13 x 5 = 65.
In addition the feathers on the wings, 33 on the left and 32 on the right, add up to 65.
Also through “Pythagorean addition” 32 becomes 3+2 = 5 and 33 becomes 3+3 = 6. The wings of the bird then represent the relationship between 6 and 5.
It was right in front of my face but I didn’t see it until now. Secrets in plain sight on every dollar bill in existence.
In the Washington DC Part 2 episode I talk about how the 9 tail feathers represent the 9 chambers under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem leading to Enoch’s cube, but the 9 also symbolize the Egyptian ennead discussed in the San Francisco episode. Amazing how everything is interlinked.
Osiris and Isis
Osiris and Isis are the 6th and 5th gods in the ancient Egyptian ennead, or pantheon of 9 gods as worshipped in Heliopolis. Osiris and Isis are the great grandchildren of the creator god Atum and their famous relationship is the relationship between 6 and 5.
There are only 9 numbers and I think the Egyptians worshipped numbers as gods.

World’s Most Popular Sport
The Soccer ball is the spherical marriage of pentagon and hexagon in 32 masonic panels.
Gateway to the Temple of Karnac in Egypt
This drawing was originally done by Schwaller de Lubicz, then John Anthony West in Serpent in the Sky (which is where I found out about it), and then I made my own drawing of it. This is the main gate at the Temple of Karnac.
See the relationship of 6 to 5 in the pillars to the void? The height of 2 to the width of 1 is like an octave in music. The ancient Egyptians were doubtless aware of far more than is generally accepted by archaeologists.
The Bent Pyramid in Dahshur Egypt
My Egypt Part 2 episode shows how the Bent Pyramid slope angles are based on pentagons and hexagons.
The Bent Pyramid is really an exquisite temple unfolding the relationship between 6 and 5.
To the best of my knowledge this was first decoded at world-mysteries.com.
The Great Pyramid
The Great Pyramid and the other two pyramids of Giza (as well as nearby Heliopolis) is located 6.5 degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer.
The Tropic of Cancer, also referred to as the Northern tropic, is the circle of latitude on the Earth that marks the most northerly position at which the Sun may appear directly overhead at its zenith. This event occurs once per year, at the time of the June solstice, when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun to its maximum extent.

Structured Landscape Surrounding Rennes le Chateau
Henry Lincoln’s The Holy Place goes into many of the mysteries in the structured landscape surrounding the mysterious village of Rennes le Chateau in southwest France. Foremost among them in my opinion is the overarching geometry: a hexagon and a pentagon.
The 5:12 rectangle John Michell, Christine Rhone, Robin and Richard Heath all contributed to placing over Jerusalem is really a mind blower. They all deserve huge recognition for this breakthrough analysis.
Each X marks the spot of the holiest places in Christianity and Judaism (see my Jerusalem Part 1 episode for more info). Each X has the proportions of 6:5.
The canonical egyptian cubit is 1.728 english feet in length.
1.728 = 6/5 x 6/5 x 6/5
This must be where we get the word cubit as a cube has equal length, width, and height.
The fact that the longer edge encompassing Jerusalem measures 1728 of these cubits validates the metrology, putting the sacred in sacred geometry.
Pope Sixtus V
The last of the Renaissance popes, Felice Peretti, chose an interesting name for himself referencing both 6 and 5 in Sixtus V when he became pope in 1567. See my Rome Part 1 video for the astronomical alignments he set up by moving ancient Egyptian obelisks.
St. Paul’s Cathedral in London
Steven Skinner showed in his book Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code how St. Paul’s Cathedral is 555′ long if you include its entrance steps. St. Paul’s architect Sir Christopher Wren also encoded the solar 365 in the height of the cross on top of the dome as measured in English feet.
It is an amazing fact that 555 feet = 6660 inches. Pull out your calculator and check this fact yourself to experience the mystery.
The Washington Monument in DC
The “world’s tallest stone structure and world’s tallest obelisk” (if you don’t count the Transamerica Pyramid) measures 555′ in height. It was the tallest structure in the world in 1888 until the Eiffel Tower was built a year later.
That Egyptian Gateway shown earlier in reference to the Temple of Karnac also frames the elevator in the Washington Monument, taking visitors up the shaft of this phallic symbol of America. Except here French freemason Houdon made a bas relief of George Washington to fill the space between the top of the elevator car and the winged disc of Horus.
Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth UK
This GB£35 million tower was originally christened the Millennium Tower but the name was changed because the project wasn’t completed until 2005.
The Millennium Wheel (aka London Eye) and Millennium Dome (aka O2 Arena) likewise encode many secrets in plain sight. By the way the Millennium Dome is 52m in height, 365m in diameter and has 12 masts making it a calendar (52 weeks / 365 days / 12 months) sited nearly on the prime meridian.

The Spinnaker Tower is quoted as being 170m tall but I wonder if it isn’t really 169m and some change because that would make it 555′. Anybody have a laser surveying rig?
The roof is quoted as being 110m which is one unit shy of the magic 111, but 110m might be special in its own right because at 360′ it is the same height as La Grande Arche in Paris (see my Paris Part 3 episode).
In gematria it is considered acceptable to add or subtract exactly one from any number, so a sum of 110 resonates with 111 under that system.
The staircase inside the Spinnaker Tower recalls the all seeing eye:

The ridiculous mascot of Spinnaker Tower shows how the “sail” is really a vesica pisces, bringing the female yoni together with the male obelisk in one bizarre hermaphroditic symbol:
Image courtesy Unisouth under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license
The union of male and female in one symbol reminds me of Baphomet. I’ll let you look into that one on your own as this post is getting too long already.
The Spinnaker Tower is also a geodetic marker. A line from the center of Stonehenge over the Spinnaker Tower leads directly to the French Pentagon, which I’ll save for a future post.
There is currently a plan in the works to build a large mixed-use development on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. The plan scheduled to be completed in 2022 calls for a 650 foot tall Sun Tower to be constructed where the star shaped barracks are today which is the approximate location of the tower built for the Golden Gate International Expo in 1937 (the reason Treasure Island was built in the first place).

Coincidentally, the single bus line that serves Treasure Island is Route 108. Perhaps in a few years you’ll be able to ride the Moon bus to the Sun tower and appreciate these masonic symbols in plain sight.
In San Francisco itself 555 California Street (former Bank of America HQ) and 666 Filbert Street (which is quite an address for the Peter and Paul Catholic Church) resonate with the Transamerica Pyramid.
A.P. Giannini Plaza is at the base of 555 California (I used to eat my lunch there when I worked in downtown SF). It has a famous sculpture by Masayuki Nagare known colloquially as the Banker’s Heart: black as night and hard as stone.
555 California’s 52 floors echo the Millennium Dome’s 52m height, both being symbols of the number of weeks in a solar year.

The Transamerica Pyramid occupies the site that AP Giannini moved his Bank of Italy to after the 1906 earthquake. Giannini founded the Transamerica corporation in 1928 as a holding company for his financial empire. The Bank of Italy later became the world’s largest commercial bank, known today as the Bank of America.
See the post on Repeating Ones for my analysis of the Bank of America logo.
666 Filbert Street is featured on the Transamerica Pyramid’s official website perhaps because its spires have the same forms as the “pyramid”. William Pereira might have used 666 Filbert as inspiration when he designed the Trance-America Pyramid which is really the world’s tallest obelisk at the solar 864 feet height (diameter of the Sun is 864,000 miles). See my San Francisco videos for more.

Amazing Architecture and Geomancy
Cort Lindahl discovered an alignment running between the World Trade Center in Baltimore Maryland USA and Baalbek Lebanon. When I zoomed in I noticed the line goes directly over Silbury Hill in the UK.
The Baltimore World Trade Center is the world’s tallest regular pentagonal building, therefore being a temple of sorts to the number 5. The structure was designed by I.M. Pei and built in 1977. See my Paris Part 1 episode for my analysis of Pei’s Louvre Pyramid.
The alignment is parallel to one face of the pentagon.
The Baltimore World Trade Center is 405′ or 123.4m in height.
Pythagoras’ most sacred diagram was the tetractys, featuring 1,2,3, and 4 items in successive rows.
The Moon’s mass is 1.234% the mass of Earth.
The distance from center of Stonehenge to the center of Lundy island is 123.4 miles. John Michell and Robin Heath reported this fact in The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth. Watch my Stonehenge episode to see how Lundy fits into the larger picture.
123.4 miles = 108 Egyptian Royal miles where 1 royal mile = 8/7 statute mile. Richard Heath reported this fact in Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization.
108 Royal Miles takes us back to the Moon which has a radius is 1080 miles.
The decimal system is encoded in the number 1 / 81 which = .01234… Peter Plichta discovered this fact along with the fact that there are exactly 81 stable elements in the universe in God’s Secret Formula. See my Egypt Part 1 episode for this discussion.
Silbury Hill UK
The alignment from the pentagon of Baltimore runs right over Silbury Hill on the way to the hexagon of Baalbek.
Silbury Hill is the tallest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe, made of alternating layers of chalk and clay. It was made about 4400 years ago around the same time as the pyramids in Egypt and perhaps by the same builders?
Silbury Hill it is similar in size to some of the smaller Egyptian pyramids of the Giza Necropolis.
Known in the Roman period as Heliopolis (echoing the long destroyed Egyptian city), the complex in Lebanon is about 9000 years old, no joke. It is perhaps the oldest structure on this planet. Perhaps the Bosnian Pyramid is older.
The alignment from the Baltimore World Trade Center cuts through the midpoint of one of the edges of the hexagon.
The largest stone at Baalbek is in excess of 1200 tons. Ponder moving a stone tipping the scale at 2,400,000 pounds and welcome to the mystery. There is no way people will ropes and levers could ever budge such a behemoth. We can’t even lift it today let alone transport it overland. There is no way to build a roadbed capable of supporting such weight.
I think people in the distant past must have understood the connection between electromagnetism and gravity. This implies a very advanced civilization doesn’t it?
Incidentally there is a connection between Silbury Hill and a place on Mars called Cydonia made by Myers and Percy in their book Two-Thirds: A History of Our Galaxy, which is one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read.
A conical spiral mound on Mars and a crater have the same spatial relationships as Silbury Hill has with Avebury. The 19.47 degree angle between a “Wall” to a tetrahedral feature on the crater corresponds to the tetrahedral angle Richard Hoagland talks about. But how does this relate to 6 and 5?
The five sided D+M pyramid in Cydonia is the key.
NASA Viking image (1976)
Erol Torun’s analysis of the D+M pyramid shows that it was made by combining both 6 and 5 sided geometry into one structure.
Chad Stuemke has uncovered mind-blowing secrets in plain sight in Detroit that I highly recommend you check out. He read an earlier version of this post and sent me the following:
Here are those few images of Augustus Woodward’s (Freemason & Thomas Jefferson’s disciple) city design for Detroit. The first map called the hub & spoke was never completely brought into fruition. The second map was implemented for the most part although it has changed in small ways over the years. In the heart of Woodward’s pentacle street layout resides Campus Martius (Field of Mars). In the heart of Campus Mars (Detroit’s Point of Origin) a new building has emerged, the Compuware Headquarters, taking the shape of a pentagon with a glass pentagonal pyramid at its heart! Some of the same symbolism found at Detroit’s Campus Mars can also be found on Mars!!
Compuware World Headquarters‘ address is One Campus Martius. I analyzed its five-sided glass pyramid and overlaid some shapes in Photoshop in red and blue:
The upper part fits the pentagon and the lower part fits the hexagon. Chad was not kidding, the structure at the heart of Detroit fits the D+M pyramid on Mars and both are monuments to 6 and 5.
The Champ de Mars (Field of Mars) behind the Eiffel Tower is connected to this mystery.
I’ll talk about the masonic Monument to the Rights of Man and the Citizen that Mitterand built in the Parisian Field of Mars in a future post.
The axis runs from obelisk in Place Fontenoy in front of UNESCO, through the Ecole Militaire, through the Champ de Mars, over the tip of the phallic Eiffel Tower, bisecting the Trocadero continues..
…all the way to Danebury in the UK:
Perhaps those responsible for the secret program of symbolism all over this planet once lived on Mars. The book Two-Thirds: A History of Our Galaxy talks at length about the former (now destroyed) Martian settlement in the guise of fiction but says also that everything in the book is true.
In this book the authors state that the original name for Earth was…wait for it…
The number of miles in the mean circumference of the Earth is:
6/5 x 12 x 12 x 12 x 12 = 24883.2
John Michell and Robin Heath reported this elegant fact in The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth.
They also pointed out that the hypercubit (my name for it by the way) measures the Earth in amazingly round numbers:
David P. Myers pointed out the following fact in Two-Thirds: A History of Our Galaxy. This is a relationship between time and space:
6/5 = 25920 / 21600
Our Solar System
John Martineau’s superb A Little Book of Coincidence has a page about a discovery made by Alex Geddes which relates the products of mean orbital radii of planets in our solar system through a series of elegant ratios. Here is one of them:
Each ratio is a symmetrical equation balancing inner rocky planets and outer gas giants. When you look at all three ratios all together something pops out:
The small “error factors” I identify reference the number 864 which is the number of the Sun whose diameter is 864,000 miles. The distance between Stonehenge and Silbury Hill is 864,000 feet, the number of seconds in a day is 86,400, etc, etc. See my post on 864.
It’s beautiful how the simple mathematical ratios relate macrocosm to microcosm in the planets orbiting our sun.
Thanks to Joshua Schultz for a comment he made on my One Times Square post that points out that the edges of the Earth’s precessional cone at 6500 years in the past and 6500 years in the future are another great example of 6 and 5.
The phenomenon of Galactic Alignment popularized by John Major Jenkins will occur at the crossroads of the galaxy if you will, that is the end of the Mayan long count calendar which will occur on 21 Dec 2012 at 11:11 AM GMT. See my Esoteric Astronomy video for more info.
In conclusion you should now have a better understanding for how 6/5 is a universal code built into the matrix in which we are embedded, from the snowflake to the flower and far beyond.
This just in…today this post has seen a meteoric rise in views. Yesterday this page had 374 views which seemed pretty high to me. Today it has had more than 4444 views due to a link from stumbleupon. Welcome stumblers!
On 8/8/11 the S&P dropped by 6.66% and the DOW dropped by 5.55%. No joke.
The exact distance between the center of the Kaaba in Mecca and the center of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is 665.65 nautical miles.
The matrix is playing games with us, trying to teach us about 6 and 5.
This just in…
I was interviewed by Lavandar and Arielle on the Starseed Radio Academy on 30 Aug 11. Lavandar who is an astrologer and intuitive coined the term starseed back in the 80s. Starseeds (also known as walk-ins or light workers) are beings who are from other star systems, galaxies, or even universes that have incarnated in human form.
Lavandar has identified markings she calls starseed codes in astrological charts which are 25°, 26°, or 27° planets. The odds of having a starseed marker is thus 3 out of 30° in each sign. Lavandar is suggesting 10% of us are not from around here. Find out if you are a starseed here.
There are 12 signs of the zodiac. Taken collectively the total number of potential star seeds are 12 x 3/30 = 36/30 = 6/5. And now we have come full circle to starseeds emanating from the womb of creation.
