In no particular order, here are some new images I’ve created recently. I posted these on my Facebook wall but they quickly got lost in the ephemeral feed. This blog is a much better repository for this research. This post is a grab bag of things I’ve noticed that haven’t made their way yet into other blog posts.
It turns out that the following 6:5 relationship in the Pyramid of Khafre is 99.9% accurate. The discovery was made by Peter Casperson in his book Den Matematiska Nyckeln Till Guds Namn (which translates from Swedish as “The Mathmatical Key to God’s Name”) published in 2004. The illustration is my own. The 6:5 relationship ties in with what I’ve written before in Taking Measure, the Snowflake and the Flower, and Cubits, among other blog posts.
The outer perimeter of the egg’s cross-section is 33,333 feet assuming the eggshell has thickness of ~5 feet at the scale of the Great Pyramid. I made a similar oval image a few years ago called The Megalithic Egg but it was based on the 3:4:5 triangle instead.
I made a round image (with Photoshop’s polar filter) of moai on Easter Island looking into the center, and then felt inspired to have them look at the Orion nebula. The 15 moai fit the stages of the alchemical process and I took the stage names from a fantastic novel by Katherine Neville called The Eight that I was re-reading. The philosopher’s stone naturally fits in the center as the final goal of al-kemi. I was playing with the swirling colors as seen above in the nebula or below in the chemicals of the alchemist’s cauldron. Are we looking into the heavens or deep within? They end up in the same place: awareness.
Is this the basis of the Fahrenheit scale, why water boils at 212°? A circle with a diameter of 212 has a circumference approximately equal to 666. It’s interesting also that 33°F = .55555…°C
Here’s a discovery I made some time ago but don’t think I’ve posted it in the blog before. The Governor’s mansion at the top of Victoria Peak overlooking Hong Kong is 3333.3 km from Borobudur. Amazing distance between city mountains: sacred and mundane!
It’s interesting that the two main fortresses of England and Scotland are 333 miles apart. I’m sure that wasn’t planned by humans, but one must not rule out the gods.
The Brandaris connection was discovered by Shannon van den Heuvel. These two monuments are exactly 3333333 meters apart.
The traditional Buddhist retreat lasts for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days. Make sense?
Heliopolis is 3333 miles from Mt Everest and 3333 km from the equator. Both metric and imperial units are based on the dimensions of the Earth. The Sun is 333000 times more massive than the Earth.
There are actually minimum and maximum temperatures. Absolute zero is the coldest possible temperature where there is absolutely no movement. The temperature of the big bang has been calculated as 33 orders of magnitude hotter than absolute zero, as measured in degrees Kelvin. At this maximum temperature all four forces (gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak) merge into one force and the fabric of spacetime itself is thought to dissolve into nothingness.
Quantum foam (also referred to as space-time foam) is a concept in quantum mechanics devised by John Wheeler in 1955. The foam is supposed to be conceptualized as the foundation of the fabric of the universe. This “foam” is the smallest measurable length, representing the granularity of spacetime itself. The human eye is 33 orders of magnitude larger than the quantum foam.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
Philosophy is written in this grand book, the universe, which stands continually open to our gaze. But the book cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and read the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without these one is wandering in a dark labyrinth.
—Galileo Galilei, The Assayer, 1623
“The enormous usefulness of mathematics in the natural sciences is something bordering on the mysterious and…there is no rational explanation for it.” -Eugene Wigner, nobel laureate
“How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?” -Albert Einstein
“The most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.” -Introduction to the Principia by Isaac Newton
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” -Niels Bohr
“Let no one ignorant of geometry enter.” -Engraved on the door of Plato’s Academy
The humble papyrus plant that was processed for writing was echoed in the architecture of hypostyle halls, and in the shape of the Nile, as seen from space.
The distance from Abu Simbel to Heliopolis is 864 km.
Mile End in London resembles the Eye of Horus. Was this intentional?
The Marine Corps war memorial in DC resembles the human eye in cross section. Was that intentional?
My analysis of the Great Pyramid shows very precise encodings of mathematical constants, some which the ancient Egyptians did not know. Were gods the architects and Egyptians the builders?
Miles, furlongs, feet, yards and inches are based on the Earth.
The geometry of the Nile delta implies a pyramid that extends into space.
The Amun oracle is π x 10 million inches from the entrance to the ancient temple dedicated to Amun.
Growth (interior and exterior) resonates with the divine spiral.
Peter Stanbury discovered the following relationships of the proton to electron mass ratio and the fine structure constant’s relationships to pi. I added the neutron to electron mass ratio and the boxed equation. Taken together, we see how pi, phi and mathematical ratio are fundamental to matter. All is number.
The molecular weight, specific heat capacity and temperature of air control how fast sound waves propagate through the atmosphere. At 3.3°C the speed of sound in air is 333.3 m/s and if the wavelength is 1/3 of a meter, the resulting frequency is exactly 1000 cycles per second, the center of human hearing. The meter, the second, base 10, and the qualities of our atmosphere conspire to produce this metrological sonic harmony.
The average male + female human height is 3.30 meters. These drawings were included on the Pioneer spacecrafts so that aliens can see what we look like naked!
Our planet is 3.3% the distance to the outermost planet in our system. This is true regardless of units.
