Location, Location, Location

It has long been known that the three most important factors determining real estate value are: location, location, location. I notice that this aphorism is true not only for residential and commercial properties, but also somewhat unexpectedly for sites having great symbolic and/or spiritual significance.

My research reveals a previously unknown system of non-monetary valuation transcending any particular culture, tradition, or time period that takes the entire Earth and the built environment into account.

Repdigits and transcendental mathematical constants are the keys to locating sites in this system. For example, consider the fact that the Western Wall in Jerusalem is 666.6 nautical miles from the Kaaba in Mecca. These two are the most sacred sites in Judaism and Islam.

Why nautical miles? There are 6x6x600 nautical miles in the meridian circumference of the Earth, revealing more repdigits in the unit used to do the encoding.

The nautical mile was originally defined as one arc minute and the metric system was originally defined by dividing the arc length from the pole to the equator into 10 million parts called metres. So one degree is 10,000,000 m / 90° = 111,111.111… m and one arc minute is 111,111.111… / 60′ = 1851.85185… m.

The nautical mile was defined as exactly 1852 m by international convention, so they rounded it off to the nearest meter. This obfuscates two very interesting patterns. The repeating numbers use the same digits of the Great Pyramid’s slope angle of 51.85° (51°51′) and the following:

1851.85185… yards = 5555.555… feet = 66,666.666… inches.

There is also an unusual link between nautical miles and meters:

666.6 nautical miles = 1234543.2 meters
6666.6 nautical miles = 123456543.2 meters

The black stone in the Kaaba is 5055005 yards from the Mahabodhi Temple in India, the location of the original tree under which the Buddha became enlightened.

The Buddha apparently died 333,333 feet from the place where he was born.


The distance between the center of the world’s largest Buddhist meditation center (capacity 1 million meditators) and the third eye of the world’s largest Buddha statue is exactly e million (2,718,282) yards. The transcendental constant e is Euler’s number, used in finance, engineering and many scientific disciplines.

300,000 Buddha statues adorn the Dhammakaya Center and the yard is a unit equal to 3 feet. The ‘Great Retreat’ in Buddhism correspondingly lasts 3 years, 3 months and 3 days.


According to the Bible, Jesus lived 33.3 years and performed 33 miracles. Did King David, father of Solomon, really rule for 33 years and did Jacob really have 33 children or are these repdigits actually codes?

The Kaaba, the stone cut temple of Ellora in India and the largest religious complex in the world at Angkor Wat not only form a great circle alignment but the distances between them also encode 33° and π.


Long ago, the Western Wall in Jerusalem formed the foundation of Solomon’s Temple. Solomon’s Temple was 33.33° from Stonehenge.


The Dome of the Rock stands on the site of Solomon’s Temple and is 3333.33 km from the center of the symbolic Place de la Nation of Paris.


In the 19th century, one of Cleopatra’s Needles was moved exactly 3333.33 km from the harbor wall in Alexandria to where it now stands in London. Likewise the Ishtar Gate of Babylon was moved 3333 km to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.


The Eiffel Tower stands 3033.33 km from the site of the former Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt. In turn the Lighthouse was 3333.33 km from the standing stones of Carnac, France. The oldest standing obelisk in the world, in Heliopolis Egypt, is in a great circle alignment with the Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt and the replica Lighthouse of Alexandria, Virginia (333 feet high), officially titled, “The George Washington Masonic National Memorial.”


The center of the Eiffel Tower is exactly e million (2,718,282) feet from the center of the Cathedral of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, which is topped by solar discs. The Sun disc’s circumference is e million miles (99.99%).


The world’s tallest building is currently the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It is e thousand feet high and 1633333 meters from the Kaaba. The total land area of the League of Arab States equals 13333333 square kilometers (99.9997% accurate).

'Arabic Connections' from Quantification

‘Arabic Connections’ from Quantification

A higher structure known as the Kingdom Tower is currently under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It will be 3303 feet high when completed. Funding was just secured to complete the tower, probably by 2020.

The Kingdom Tower will be 33.3° from the Golden Temple in India, which the most sacred shrine in Sikhism.


The center of the Kingdom Tower of Jeddah is 3,333,333 inches from the word Allah (in Arabic calligraphy) atop the world’s highest and largest clock tower in Mecca, steps from the Kaaba. The Kingdom Tower is also oriented so one leg points at the Kaaba and the Abraj Al-Bait Tower.


The vector connecting the word Allah on the clock tower terminates at the center of the equilateral triangular void within the Kingdom Tower, symbolizing the Eye of Providence, or Allah in this case.

Sometimes important sites are related by repdigits within cities. For example, consider Tehran, Iran. The Tower of Freedom is 55,555.5 feet from the center of the Mausoleum of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Interestingly, this distance is also equal to 666,666 inches and both complexes ironically have similar plans. The Tower was built in 1971 to honor the Shah and later renamed Azadi, meaning Freedom, after the Revolution of 1979 that ousted the Shah. The architect of the tower was a Baha’i who was driven out of the country when religious pluralism was rescinded in the Revolution of 1979, led by the Ayatollah Khomeini. It is therefore highly unlikely that there was a conspiracy to locate the Mausoleum of the Ayatollah in a repdigit relation with the Shah’s tower. The encoding transcends culture and religion, a secret in plain sight.


I have thus presented you with many such secrets in plain sight, many of which hinge on different units of measure. These units of measure are ultimately based on, and have surprising resonances with the dimensions of the Earth and the Moon. For example, the Imperial system of inches, feet, yards, furlongs and miles has clear resonances that are far from accidental. There are 63360 inches in a mile (5280 feet/mile x 12 inches/foot). There are 63360 furlongs in the Earth’s diameter. The circumference of a circle encompassing the Earth and the Moon measures 63360 miles.


John Michell discovered that the combined Moon & Earth radii measure 1x2x3x4x5x6x7 miles. The arc length around one-quarter of the circle circumscribing the Earth and Moon is 8x9x10x11 miles, which is also curiously equal to the Earth’s diameter.

Read the essay “Yards” in my Anthology for more info on the resonances of that particular unit.

The Imperial system is not unique in having resonances with the Earth and the Moon. The Metric system does also. The combined diameters of the Earth and the Moon are equal to 10,000 times Ф km (99.97% accurate). The symbol Ф represents the Divine Proportion. The Earth’s polar diameter is 10,000 times the square root of Ф km. The Earth and Moon are divinely proportioned with respect to each other as shown by the triangle and the diagram showing two intersecting golden rectangles tangent to the Earth below.


In fact the Imperial and Metric systems are related by the divine proportion, or nearly so (see the tiny half percent gap on the upper right).


So our systems of units resonate in multiple fascinating ways with the structure of our planet and its natural satellite. Here are some surprising repdigit patterns in our units, revealed by a hexagon inscribed within the Earth.


I do not believe the Moon was made by aliens or is made of cheese, nor do I believe the Earth is flat or that sea-monsters patrol its edges. Please read David Mathisen’s well-written article, “The Invisible Kraken: Evidence that the Earth is not Flat” and think about it if you are a “Flat Earth Truther.” Do not contact me with flat earth theories or conspiracies about NASA or scientists in general, or about people suppressing flat earth theories or the theorists themselves.

“Belief is the death of intelligence.” -Robert Anton Wilson

So what do I ascribe to the meaning of location, location, location? Although you might initially think that these structures were sited according to a grand human conspiracy, the great antiquity of many of these examples stretches this theory well beyond its rational breaking point. The standard materialist view would have physical agents coordinating all of this, so aliens are the next most likely suspects. However, consider their motives.

If aliens encoded repdigits and transcendental mathematical constants both in our units of measure and in the locations of many significant structures, they must have had for thousands of years, and continue to have up to the present time, intimate knowledge about what our species considers significant. If we could put aside our primate/primal fear of people who aren’t from around here—aliens—we might consider that these agents know us very well, so well perhaps, that they must not be alien at all. They might know us better than we know ourselves.

Why would anyone bother to encode all of this—what could they possibly hope to accomplish with such a massive effort? Clearly the encoding transcends any particular culture, ethnic group, religion or belief system, spans a great deal of time, and reveals a high level of intelligence. As such it appears to be a universal message to humanity, one that has been there in plain sight all along, waiting for discovery. This has only been possible for about a decade, since GPS satellite data has been publicly accessible through computer interfaces such as Google Earth. Now that the genie is out of the bottle, what does it mean?

Encoding messages in the locations of significant structures is a non-destructive, gentle approach that reminds me of the low-impact of crop circles. Information is conveyed but it remains entirely up to us to assign meaning, if and when we are able to do so and curious enough to do it.

I think we have to work this out backwards, in other words, “by their fruits we shall know them.” The fruits have to be knowledge and perhaps human enlightenment. So who would want to educate and enlighten us?

We can rule out God, unless you define God as a being who transcends religion. We can rule out aliens too, unless they aren’t actually alien and have transcended their own selfish agendas.

More likely are higher selves and/or spiritual beings, but that requires one to consider trans-material reality—things beyond that which we can readily weigh and measure.

It’s amazing to me, but scientific materialists who believe that everything is made of atoms tend to see no contradiction that everything came from nothing in the Big Bang. Scientific materialists also believe in dark matter and dark energy. Neither dark matter nor dark energy has ever or probably can ever be detected, and yet we are supposed to believe these substances are 96% the mass of the universe, because that figure makes the math in the standard model of physics work out. That is like saying invisible pink unicorns are 96% the mass of the Universe, an unfalsifiable (you can’t ever prove that it is false) and therefore unscientific premise. Time to rethink the standard model?

“According to the standard Big Bang narrative, space and time did not exist prior to the Big Bang. Therefore, the “cause” of the Big Bang could not have existed within space and time. In that case, it existed outside space and time, hence was dimensionless, hence was immaterial, hence was mental! The very thing that scientific materialism claims cannot exist — independent, causal mind — is the only possible, plausible candidate for explaining the Big Bang.” –Hyperreason by Mike Hockney

In addition, we can rule out dark matter and dark energy as immaterial encoders (assuming they even exist) because these universal forces or fields presumably don’t “know” anything, including what is significant to our particular species.

The encoders are minds possibly imagined by a singular mind (the Universe itself) with an intelligence that chooses to encode repdigits and transcendental mathematics in the locations of our significant sites for some teleological purpose. I suspect that this purpose is to teach us eventually who we are.

“Let us pretend that there was a machine, which was constructed in such a way as to give rise to thinking, sensing and having perceptions. You could imagine it expanded in size (while retaining the same proportions) so that you could go inside it, like going into a mill. On this assumption, your tour inside it would show you the working parts pushing each other, but never anything which would explain a perception.” -Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz

Perhaps the first thing to realize is that more is going on here than just atoms. Quantum physicists have known for a century that atoms are really 99.9999999999% empty space, but we have yet to come to terms with that information.

99.9999999999…% = 100%.

The only possible descriptions of sub-atomic particles are mathematical descriptions because that is precisely what they are: mathematics.

“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.” -Nicola Tesla

This is the key: the universe is 100% mathematics, the universal language. There is no objective “substance” out there. However, if all is number, then who are you?

Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes was in the third and last wave of new towns created in the UK to disperse population away from London following WWII. Located approximately halfway between London and Birmingham, Milton Keynes was chartered in 1967 and planned by the Milton Keynes Development Corporation, which was chaired by Lord Campbell.

The large central park in Milton Keynes was named Campbell Park in his honour. There is a memorial stone by the fountain in the park whose Latin inscription reads, Si monumentum requiris, circumspice, which translates as, “If you seek his monument, look around you”, referring to the urban landscape created by his team. This couldn’t be more accurate. Milton Keyes, often abbreviated MK, is a massive secret in plain sight.

The fountain in Campbell Park was recently replaced by the MK Rose, a design “based on the mathematical beauty of a flower, the maths that inspired cathedral Rose windows…It is the geometry behind much of the worlds sacred architecture.” Gordon Young is the artist behind these quoted words and architectural vision.

The first pillar of the MK Rose was unveiled at 11:11 on 11/11/11 to celebrate the most auspicious Remembrance Day of this century. Remember, WW1 ended at 11:11 on 11/11? Right.

MK Rose was commissioned by The Cenotaph Trust. The most elite cenotaph in the UK is of course the one next to Whitehall in London where Royals celebrate Remembrance Day every year.

The Whitehall Cenotaph was designed to resemble the hilt of a sword, by Sir Edwin Lutyens, the same architect who designed New Delhi. I wrote about New Delhi in Serpent Wisdom, and discussed its 6-6-6 geometry.

The strange thing is, the distance from the Whitehall Cenotaph to MK Rose is exactly .666° of arc!

MK is designed around an axis called Midsummer Blvd that runs straight from the mirrored glass of the train station to the Tree Cathedral in Campbell Park at a place called Newlands. Many have interred the ashes of loved ones at Tree Cathedral (cost £700). No gravestones, markers or mementos are allowed on site but there is an online Book of Remembrance for those whose ashes are scattered at Tree Cathedral.

This guy has ears to hear and eyes to see. MK is a solar temple. Watch and listen:

Midsummer Blvd takes its name from the fact that it and the entire town are aligned to the summer solstice sunrise, exactly how Stonehenge’s central axis is oriented. I discovered that the centre of Stonehenge is 66.66 nautical miles from the rond-point of Tree Cathedral.

The rond-point of Tree Cathedral is .66° of arc to Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace. The line goes through an interesting quadripartite obelisk at Tree Cathedral and also cuts right down the long double avenue in Green Park from Picadilly to Canada Gate and the rond-point of Victoria Memorial.

Canada Memorial behind Canada Gate is a tribute to the members of the Canadian Forces killed during WWI and WWII. The long walk forms another sort of cathedral of trees.

There is a mound in Campbell Park that looks very much like Silbury Hill from the front. It is topped by a metal art piece called Light Pyramid. The Light Pyramid is 3333 arcseconds from the centre of Avebury Ring.



Avebury Ring contains the largest stone circle in Europe, and is one of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain. Silbury Hill is the tallest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe.

I’ve written before that Silbury Hill is 66.66 nautical miles from the Shard in London. The Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union. It also synchronistically resembles the MK Light Pyramid.

Silbury Blvd and Avebury Blvd are the main arterial streets of MK on either side of the central Midsummer Blvd spine, analogous to the way the ida and pingala flow on either side of the human spine.

Similiar to Silbury Hill although not as large, there is an ancient mound in the backyard of MK’s Central Library at 555 Silbury Blvd called Seklow Hundred Moot Hill.

A Moot hill is a hill or mound historically used as a meeting place. In early mediaeval Britain, such hills were used for moots, meetings of local people to settle local business. Among other things, proclamations might be read; decisions might be taken; court cases might be settled at a moot. Although some moot hills were naturally occurring features or had been created long before as burial mounds, others were purpose-built. –Source

The distance from Seklow Hundred Moot Hill in MK to Cleopatra’s Needle in London is .666666° of arc.

The distance from Glastonbury Tor to the “Head” art piece in Campbell Park is 6,666,666 inches.

There is a small park in MK’s theatre district where there is a tiny replica of Stonehenge and three pyramids recalling Giza. It was also the site of a large Ferris wheel at one time which is still visible in Google Earth. Wonders abound in MK.

Milton Keynes was named after a village that was originally called Middeltone in the 11th century. After the Norman invasion, the de Cahaines family held the manor from 1166 to the late 13th century as well as others in the country (Ashton Keynes, Somerford Keynes, and Horsted Keynes). During this time the village became known as Middleton de Keynes eventually shortening to Milton Keynes.

That same Keynes family includes John Maynard Keynes, the founder of modern macroeconomics. Keynes was described by The Economist as “Britain’s most famous 20th-century economist.” Keynes believed that government spending regulates the business cycle. A resurgence of Keynesian thought in 2008-9 led to the stimulus packages and bailouts of the banks.

“Newton was not the first of the Age of Reason. He was the last of the magicians, the last of the Babylonians and Sumerians…because he looked on the universe and all that is in it as a riddle, as a secret which could be read by applying pure thought to certain evidence, certain mystic clues which God had lain about the world to allow a sort of philosopher’s treasure hunt to the esoteric brotherhood…He regarded the universe as a cryptogram set by the Almighty—just as he himself wrapt the discovery of the calculus in a cryptogram when he communicated with Leibnitz. By pure thought, by concentration of mind, the riddle, he believed, would be revealed to the initiate.” -John Maynard Keynes

Keynes‘ most influential critic was Milton Friedman who was described by The Economist as, “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century and possibly of all of it.” Milton believed it is the money supply alone that regulates the business cycle.

Isn’t it odd that the most influential economists of the modern era hold the names Milton and Keynes?

A recent investment report attests that Milton Keynes attracts the highest proportion of international businesses in Great Britain outside London.

Could this investment be happening unconsciously, given that most international investors are familiar with John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman? To what extent are the distances and alignments the result of unconscious planning?

Or could the MK in Milton Keynes be the same MK in MK Ultra? To what extent are our minds controlled? How much does govern-ment govern our mentality?

Ultra was the designation adopted by British military intelligence in June 1941 for wartime signals intelligence obtained by breaking high-level encrypted enemy radio and teleprinter communications at the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park.

Bletchley Park is officially part of Milton Keynes.

Ultra intelligence came from cracking the code of the German enigma cipher. Even though it might sound enigmatic, I don’t think there really is such a thing as unconsciousness. I will crack the code for you: consciousness is the ground of being.

Mystics, contrary to religionists, are always saying that reality is not two things — God and the world — but one thing, consciousness. -Amit Goswami, physicist

The finer grained question then is at which level is the consciousness that patterns Milton Keynes and the world? Is it at the mundane human level, the level of human elites or something alien, lower, higher and/or more mystical? I leave it up to you, dear reader, to decide. Milton Keynes is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.

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…

Serpent Wisdom

Serpent wisdom from the Bible, Genesis Chapter 3, King James version:

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked.

Note: They did not die. Instead, they learned something. Who told the truth and who lied?

The apple Eve passed to Adam represents knowledge, the basis of serpent wisdom. Steve Jobs well understood the power of one of these symbols.

He also knew the power of number. Here is the original advertisement for the computer that started Jobs’ trajectory from a kid in a garage to running the the largest company in the world by market capitalization at the end of his lifetime. The Apple-1 had a very interesting price point.

Apple’s new Campus-2 corporate headquarters is under construction in Cupertino, California. It just happens to be 8604 km from Stonehenge (see center of image). I noticed the architectural plan’s resonance with a 7-pointed star and overlaid an alchemical diagram representing the process of turning lead, or in this case silicon, into gold. Apple’s stock just split 7-for-1.

Another symbol from Genesis is one that photographer Richard Avedon capitalized on in 1981. Nastassja Kinski was emblazoned on many a teenager’s wall and imagination in the 80s, myself included.


I find that sixes and serpent wisdom go together quite often.

Serpent Mound Louvre Delhi

The distance from Serpent Mound, Ohio to the Louvre Pyramid is 6600.66 km (discovered by Asplund).

“The Egyptian creator deity, Cneph, was represented as a serpent with an egg thrusting from his mouth, similar to the Ohio Serpent Mound.” –Source

In SIPS Volume 1, I showed how the Louvre Pyramid deconstructs into a total of 666 rhombi, large and small.

“Why was the Great Pyramid called ‘House of the Serpent?’ Because, according to Bushby, ancient Egyptian priests maintained that, “a serpent lies coiled in the Great Pyramid.” –Source

I noticed that it is almost exactly the same distance again, 6600 km, from the tip of the Louvre Pyramid to the center of Connaught Place, at the top of the Indian capital’s pyramid. Lutyens’ Delhi is based on sextile geometry.

If you look at the site plan you see that New Delhi was built right next to a serpentine railroad and river. Sixes and snakes again.

In Taking Measure I showed how there are some very interesting azimuths emanating from the center of the India Gate hexagon.

Come to think of it, I have seen that rounded hexagon before: the mysterious hexagon with an edge length of 8640 miles on the north pole of Saturn.

I have seen another rounded hexagon in Canberra, the capital of Australia (and many more). City Hill is the site of Australian Capital Territory’s Legislative Assembly and Supreme Court.

I compared Canberra and New Delhi in Taking Measure because their templates have many similarities. They both remind me of this famous crop circle, said to encode many mathematical concepts.

Barbury Castle Crop Circle from 1991

Barbury Castle Crop Circle from 1991

What I didn’t comment on in the book are the bodies of water. Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin is quite serpentine, don’t you think? It even has a protruding tongue! The water volume is reported as 33,000,000 cubic meters with a surface area of 6.6 square kilometers.


Jan Thulstrup discovered that the Parliamentary Triangle has a perimeter of 8640 m. 864 is a member of The Cosmic Sequence.

I noticed that Canberra’s “land axis” has a bearing of 216° true north. 216 = 6 x 6 x 6. Canberra’s serpent wisdom includes the relationship of 6/5 in the City Hill hexagon to the Russell defense pentacle.

Connecting the dots, the azimuth from Canberra’s Parliament House to New Delhi’s Connaught Place is 303.33° true north.

Following the trail of synchronicity, a Parisian with the last name Hapax messaged me and asked if I wanted photos he took at Cergy. I have read the late Philip Coppens’ eye-opening article on Cergy called Mitterand’s Great—Unknown—Work and so have been interested in Cergy since then. I wrote about Cergy in my 2011 post on 666.

Hapax photographed this unusual spiral platform on the shore of the lake he called the escargot. It doesn’t seem to serve any practical purpose. It has been said that the spiral snail shell is the specific sign of French freemasonry, called the cochlea, because it embodies the golden ratio.

However, the following plaque is mounted on the stone wall of this spiral platform. I think it is a “smoking gun.”

Plaque on spiral platform at Cergy

Why would this tedious metrological information be posted unless the complex was consciously planned to encode something with measurements or occupy an important point on the Earth in relation to other sites? Why did the architects of Cergy post this plaque on site but offer no explanatory information as to why it is there? You can see that the “English” and “French” systems of measure are given equal importance in red and blue, respectively.

Some secrets in plain sight do not require human awareness to be created. That is certainly true in some cases like this one (from my previous post):


However, Cergy is a different story. There appears to be an elite that is aware of Earth measure and numerology. Speaking of, take a look at this speech by Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF. What do you make of her mention of the “lunar new year” and “the magic 7”? I’m not sure about the editor’s conclusions but there is no denying that numerology and astronomy are unusually important to this member of the global financial elite. She talks in riddles that only those with cochlea to hear will comprehend.

Take a look at my analysis of Cergy’s site plan. Look at how they managed to squeeze in a lake, separated from a serpentine river by a narrow border of land. The lake has two artificial islands, one in the form of a circular mound and the other a small stone pyramid.

A line drawn from the altar stone of Stonehenge to the rondpoint of Notre Dame of Paris passes directly over the center of the officially titled, “Astronomical Island” in this city of hidden symbolism. See?

The distance from Stonehenge to the Astronomical Island is 365242 meters, echoing the solar year of 365.242 days. The island is bare by the way, having just a few trees. No astronomical equipment. The bridge doesn’t even lead there.

Where that first measurement from Stonehenge leaves off, the next one begins. The distance from the Astronomical Island to the rondpoint of Notre Dame is 30303 meters.

This next one is also a mind-blower: I measured the distance from the Astronomical Island at Cergy to Parliament House in Canberra and it is 55,555,555 feet or 666,666,666 inches. My hunch is that the Astronomical Island is an origin point for geodetic measurements.

Speaking of origins, the pyramid in the lake is related to the Egyptian creation myth of Atum. He arose on a mound that emerged from the primeval waters. He later lived in or became a pyramid that also emerged from the waters. The myth fits the artificial reality of Cergy.

I have a theory that 6 represents Osiris, as Osiris is the oldest root of this tree: Osiris, Cronus, Saturn, Chronos, and most recently Father Time.

Europe’s largest clock is at the terminus of Cergy’s minor axis.

Cergy's Clock is the largest in Europe

Cergy’s official information brochure states the following about this clock:

“Réalisée par l’horloger Huchez, la double horloge de 10 mètres de diamètre (333 fois plus grande qu’une montre-bracelet ordinaire!), qui évoque les gares du début du siècle, est la plus grande d’Europe.”

Google translates this into English as follows:

“Made by the watchmaker Huchez, double clock 10 meters in diameter (333 times greater than ordinary wristwatch!), Which evokes the stations of the early century, is the largest in Europe.”

Ever wonder who Notre Dame or “our lady” really is? This sculpture at the entrance of Notre Dame might give us a hint.

Could she be serpent wisdom? The divine feminine creative power is called kundalini shakti in Delhi.

“In any discussion of serpent wisdom we cannot fail to also mention the ancient Hindu Kundalini practice. Kundalini means simply “coiled serpent” and in the Indian system the ida and pingala energy (through serpent channels) are raised up and down the spine to raise the consciousness of the adept.” –Philip Gardiner


Correspondingly, a serpent climbing a rod is the ancient and modern symbol of medicine.

“Pythagoras” and “Pythia” are words related to pythons. Their consciousnesses were clearly elevated.

Funny how Delphi and Delhi are such similar words as well, perhaps that is just a coincidence if there even is such a thing.

Pythia, or Priestess of the Oracle of Delphi by John Collier (1891)

The name Cergy is also a clue. Coppens pointed out that “Cergy” is the mirror of “Y grec,” which is how the French call the letter Y. It works sort of like this:


“Y grec” or “Greek Y” is also known as the Pythagorean Y that I discussed in SIPS Volume 1. The Y is like the forked tongue of a serpent. It symbolizes the choice we all have to do evil or live, another mirror-choice.

We have inherited the culture of those who wanted to control us. Tradition told us that serpent wisdom is evil and there is something wrong with gaining knowledge ourselves. It is time to see this clearly for what it is and make a new, and hopefully rational, choice.

Why is the Astronomical Island called that? I wonder if it might refer to Ophiucus, the serpent bearer. This 13th sign of the zodiac was suppressed when the solar cult gained dominance.

Kepler's depiction of Ophiucus

Kepler’s depiction of Ophiucus

Compare Ophiucus with Lilith who was reborn in the 80s in the form of Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent:

Lilith by John Collier (1892)

Lilith by John Collier (1892)

The Hebrew term Lilith is translated variously as “night creature”, “night monster”, “night hag”, or “screech owl” and is identified as a female demon. In Jewish folklore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife, whom God created at the same time as Adam. The literal First Lady as it were.

This contrasts with his second wife Eve, who was created from one of Adam’s ribs, a subservient role. The lunar serpent wisdom was suppressed and twisted by a misogynist patriarchy who sought to eclipse the old ways with a Sun/Son cult. I wonder if Ophiucus was really Lilith but it’s been so long that we have largely lost the plot?

I published this image in Quantification

"Thirteen Moons"

“Thirteen Moons”

…and this is an excerpt from my write up about the image:

We reach sexual maturity around 13 years of age and women have on average 13 menstrual (or Moon) cycles a year. Human biology therefore harmonizes with a 13 month calendar so our 12 month calendar keeps us off balance. The suppression of the feminine is correlated with the solar calendar and a cultural fear of the number 13, called triskaidekaphobia. This phobia manifests in the common architectural practice of skipping the 13th floor in multi-level buildings, the irrational fear of Friday the 13th, and the fact that 13 witches are said to make a coven. I say bring back the 13 moon calendar and restore balance to the force!

We seem to do a lot of things backwards such as celebrating New Year’s in the dead of winter and marking off a new day in the middle of the night.

The major axis of Cergy points not to central Paris but to a site on the outskirts called Project Balard. In fact Cergy points directly to what has been called, “The French Pentagon” because it is the new 1.08 billion Euro armed forces headquarters. The French Army, Navy and Air Force will all be led from a “pentagon” that is actually a hexagon. 5 and 6 all over again.

French Pentagon is actually a Hexagon

The French Pentagon is actually a Hexagon

“The idea of a central hexagon that would point out in six different directions to form small islands of buildings…came to me at the end,” said its architect Nicolas Michelin.

The design of Project Balard is especially resonant with the shape of France which has long been compared to a hexagon. I made this graphic:



The woman on the flag of the French Republic is none other than Isis/Lilith, her spine aglow with serpent wisdom. How you see the goddess of nature is a choice that is up to you.

The etymology of the word template has its roots in the word temple. You can imagine how geometry etched in plaster, stone or metal might have guided ancient temple construction. The temple plates became known as templates.

If you walk through a temple such as a church or mosque its template is typically pretty obvious if you stop to think about it, being that its plan is based on longstanding religious tradition. The meaning of older templates might not be so clear if the tradition has been broken or we have somehow lost the plot with the passage of time.

Modern building templates tend to respond to the practical needs of their owners, occupants or in some cases, the egos of their architects, rather than embodying celestial order as above, so below. However, there are many notable exceptions.

Lately I have been studying Asian architecture and urban design, and have noticed similarities between Angkor Wat and the Forbidden City.

Angkor Wat Forbidden City

The have roughly the same proportions and, similar but slightly different dimensions. Angkor Wat is ~888×1111 meters, not including its moat. The Forbidden City is ~888×1111 meters including its moat.

This comparison visually reminded me of a stereogram art piece I made back in 2010 called “Chasing Isis”.

Chasing Isis (object array stereogram)

Chasing Isis (object array stereogram)

Try staring unfocused at the pair of images until a third image appears in between the two images in your mind’s eye. Find this image in your perception and then slowly bring it into focus. When you see it clearly, it will be an unmistakeable Eureka! You will perceive an extra dimension of depth. I find stereograms like this a wonderful analogy for higher dimensions and the unseen realms that remain secretly hidden in plain sight until you perceive them.

Once you’ve got it, try moving your head very slightly from side to side to accentuate the parallax effect. I’ve written many articles about stereograms in my “Beyond Photoshop” column in Photoshop User magazine (I’ve written 62 articles there since 2007).

Taking a closer look at Angkor Wat, I see that the center of the sanctuary is located by the apex of a triangle whose slope angles measure 51°51′. The proportions of the island are 6:5 and at that scale, the faces of the “pyramid” have the proportion of 5.555 and the distance from the apex to the base of the island is 3.141, recalling π.

The ancient Egyptian template for the Great Pyramid also encodes π and 51°51′.

Thirteen Moons from Quantification

“Thirteen Moons” from Quantification

The Forbidden City uses a different template that appears to me to be based on the 3-4-5 triangle and its squares. The 3-4-5 triangle has the slope angle of 53°8′ and the apex of two back-to-back triangles locates the Hall of Preserving Harmony at the center of the Forbidden City.


The template shows that the dimensions of the squares are 3, 4, and 5 units. At this scale the gap between the apex of the “pyramid” and the 3×3 square measures .333 units and the gap between the intersections of the arcs and the 4×4 square measures .33 units. That’s a lot of Threes!

There are numerous geometric correlations between this template and the Forbidden City. Take a closer look.

Where have I seen squares measuring 3, 4, and 5 units on edge before? Oh yes, that’s Euclid’s 47th proposition. You remember, a squared plus b squared equals c squared?

Pythagoras' triangle

Pythagoras’ triangle

I know, really boring right? Well Euclid’s propositions can actually be quite entertaining or frustrating as the case may be. I couldn’t figure out Level 20 but sure had some geeky fun getting there.

Gary Osborn, Nicolas Poussin and John Michell taught me that the humble 3-4-5 triangle encodes the true proportions of the Earth and Moon…

…and the tilt of the Earth.

There is also this equation:


I’ve also shown how the 3-4-5 triangle and the golden rectangle encode the location of Dendera, the birthplace of Isis…

“Birthplace of Isis” from Quantification

…and correlates with magic squares and their planetary associations:

"3-4-5 Magic"

“3-4-5 Magic”

Freemason writers such as Frank Higgins accorded the 3-4-5 triangle Egyptian significance by correlating it with Osiris, Isis and Horus. The squares planetary associations match the gods. Osiris = Saturn, Isis = Jupiter and Horus = Mars.


The 3-4-5 triangle is another ancient Egyptian template.

This just in…Urban Asplund says the dimension 888x1111m shared at Angkor Wat and the Forbidden City is suspiciously close to π squared times 100,000. In fact it is 99.98% the same. That is interesting not only because of π in Angkor Wat’s template but also because it measures 3141 km from Angkor Wat, Cambodia to Ellora, India. Here is how it looks when we connect the dots and continue hacking the world matrix:

Angkor Wat Greater Pyramid

Angkor Wat Greater Pyramid

The distance from the Forbidden City to Angkor Wat is 99% equal to the distance from Ellora to Angkor Wat, so we essentially have an isosceles triangle draped on the spherical geometry of the Earth. Mount Everest is on the base of this “greater pyramid”.
