Stretching the Cord

Stretching the Cord was one of the most important elements of the ancient Egyptian foundation ritual which was closely associated with the goddess Seshet, Mistress of the House of Architects.

The cord in question is the mason´s line which was used to measure out the dimensions of the building and align the building with the stars or points of the compass.

The word “sesheta” means hidden things, mysteries, secrets, so the implication is that the Pharaoh is being given access to the power of those mysteries through Goddess Seshet. The papyrus plant, her symbol, resembles a seven-pointed star. Pharaoh Tuthmosis III called her she of seven points. –Source

I can think of another she of seven points:


Inspired by Seshet and the indefatigable Mark Gray, he and I stretched the cord, which in this age is the Ruler tool in Google Earth.

The distance from the Statue of Liberty’s torch to the Tridents inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum Pavillion is 12,000 feet exactly. That’s an astoundingly round number.

SOL Tridents

I wrote about the Tridents in my Freedom Tower and Stars of Lower Manhattan posts. They are located at 40.711536°N,-74.013001°W.

Adding these numbers we get -33.3 and change.

The distance from the Tridents to The Sphere (or more officially the Great Spherical Caryatid sculpture) is 33,333 inches. The Sphere used to be right where the Tridents now emerge from the underworld.

Mike Montesano pointed out that the Lucky Sixes discussed in my 11-11 post could be seen as 33-33; because three dots form each row:

33 33

Consider the strange attractor at the end of time (but not the world): 12-21-12.

Adding horizontally we have 3-3-3.

We are on a roll. When you roll the dice 90 degrees they read as 11:11:

The distance from the Tridents to the rondpoint in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine measures 11,111 meters.

Tridents St John Divine

Located between W 110th and 113th streets the interior area of the Cathedral is 121,000 square feet. 11 x 11 = 121.

This unfinished building has been claimed as being the world’s largest cathedral. It is realistic to maintain such high aspirations when your sources of funding include tycoons like JP Morgan and prominent figures like the Grand Master of the Masons of the state of New York. The completion of the cathedral was such a prized accomplishment for the Freemasons that it was featured on the front page of “Masonic World” of March 1925. –Source

On the western facade of the building, stonemasons have sculpted numerous scenes that seem oddly out of place for a Cathedral. The most striking one is the chilling depiction of the destruction of New York city and its landmarks. –Source

The cathedral has a freestanding masonry triangle above its western entrance…

…which reminds me of the all seeing eye within the triangle. Two other thin structures like this spring to mind. The mysterious pyramid in Blagnac, France which is full of secrets in plain sight that you can read about here

…and Project Triangle in Paris., a 200m high illuminated triangle that is the first structure to penetrate the 37m height restrictions that have been in place for 30 years. Read about it here. Project Triangle is slated to be completed in 2014.

Another geodetic point is obviously Cleopatra’s Needle just outside the Met. The freemasons funded the expedition that moved this obelisk from Egypt to NYC that I discussed in my New York videos.

Don’t let the name Cleopatra fool you, the obelisk is obviously a phallic symbol.

Cleopatras Needle NYC

Mark Gray discovered something that blew my mind (again). The distance from Cleopatra’s Needle to the Alma Mater sculpture at Columbia University is exactly 3141 meters. Pi is 3.141…

Cleopatra Alma Mater

Alma Mater is Latin for kindly mother. Here is her sculpture. The male-female symbolism is quite typical with obelisks but the female half of the polarity is usually expressed by fountains.

The kindly mother’s face reminds me of the Statue of Liberty (SOL). The Ring of Power videos make a compelling case that the SOL was modeled after Selene, daughter of Cleopatra.

There is indeed an owl hidden in the folds of Alma Mater’s cloak, and college superstition has it that the first member of the incoming class to find the owl will become class valedictorian. When Columbia was all-male, the legend used to go that any Columbia student who found the owl on his first try would marry a girl from Barnard. –Source

The owl of course is a symbol of Minerva and the owl sees quite clearly in the dark. Do you see the owl in the landscaping surrounding this building?

The Bohemian Club has a logo featuring an owl and this plaque is on their headquarters at 624 Taylor Street in San Francisco:


Mark stretched one final cord that is definitely worth bringing to your attention. The distance from Cleopatra’s Needle to 3 World Financial Center is 333,000 inches. Notice how the cord is oriented in line with the orientation of 3 WFC, as if the building was designed to point at Cleopatra’s Needle.

Cleopatra 3WFC

3 WFC is the same building which contains the exquisite Eleven Tears 9/11 memorial that I discussed in my 11-11 post.

The Sun’s mass is 333,000 x Earth’s mass. –Source

This is where I really wonder. Some of these revelations smack of conspiracy. But people are almost never this brilliant, especially over multiple generations, all the while keeping silent about masterworks of measure.

All of the cords stretched in this post are of relatively recent buildings constructed in the last 200 years. If you recall my post on the Foundation Stone, I stretched a cord from the stone at the heart of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem to Glastonbury Tor in the UK and it measures 33.3 degrees.


These points were surveyed thousands years ago. But who the surveyor was isn’t known. It seems to me that to produce such accuracy one would need incredible knowledge of the stars …or a starship.

Seshet’s origins involve the stars and ancient Egyptian astronomy. Here are a Pharaoh’s words inscribed on the Temple of Horus at Edfu:

I have grasped the stake…I take the measuring cord in the company of Seshet. I consider the progressive movements of the stars. My eye is fixed upon the Bull’s Thigh [Ursa Major]. I count off time…and establish the corners of the Temple’.

Spell 10 of the Coffin Texts states “Seshet opens the door of heaven for you.” She has opened it for me and I see indescribable beauty through the portal.

20 thoughts on “Stretching the Cord”

  1. The brilliance of your minds never ceases to amaze me! So, I read this and liked all of it, especially the stuff about “Cathedral St of John the Divine” and of it it being featured on the front page of the March 1925 “Masonic Order” publication. On that front cover is Jachin and Boaz (Or Boaz and Yachin depending on your view) and then I read the comment “On the western facade of the building, stonemasons have sculpted numerous scenes that seem oddly out of place for a Cathedral. The most striking one is the chilling depiction of the destruction of New York city and its landmarks” and I clicked on the “source” link to see some of the stone mason work on that cathedral. While pondering all this, I remember in Manley P. Hall’s work “Secret Teachings of All Ages” the following (I apologize for it’s length, but it is important):

    “The right Tablet of the Law further signifies Jachin–the white pillar of light; the left Tablet, Boaz–the shadowy pillar of darkness. These were the names of the two pillars
    cast from brass set up on the porch of King Solomon’s Temple. They were eighteen cubits in height and beautifully ornamented with wreaths of chainwork, nets, and pomegranates. On the top of each pillar was a large bowl–now erroneously called a ball or globe–one of the bowls probably containing fire and the other water. The celestial globe (originally the bowl of fire), surmounting the right-hand column (Jachin), symbolized the divine man; the terrestrial globe (the bowl of water), surmounting the left hand column (Boaz), signified the earthly man. These two pillars respectively connote also the active and the passive expressions of Divine Energy, the sun and the moon,
    sulphur and salt, good and bad, light and darkness. Between them is the door leading into the House of God, and standing thus at the gates of Sanctuary they are a reminder that Jehovah is both an androgynous and an anthropomorphic deity. As two parallel columns they denote the zodiacal signs of Cancer and Capricorn, which were formerly placed in
    the chamber of initiation to represent birth and death–the extremes of physical life. They accordingly signify the summer and the winter solstices, now known to Freemasons
    under the comparatively modern appellation of the “two St. Johns.

    In the mysterious Sephirothic Tree of the Jews, these two pillars symbolize Mercy and Severity. Standing before the gate of King Solomon’s Temple, these columns had the same symbolic import as the obelisks before the sanctuaries of Egypt. When interpreted Qabbalistically, the names of the two pillars mean “In strength shall My House be established. “In the splendor of mental and spiritual
    illumination, the High Priest stood between the pillars as a mute witness to the perfect virtue of equilibrium–that hypothetical point equidistant from all extremes. He thus
    personified the divine nature of man in the midst of his compound constitution–the mysterious Pythagorean Monad in the presence of the Duad. On one side towered the stupendous column of the intellect; on the other, the brazen pillar of the flesh. Midway between these two stands the glorified wise man, but he cannot reach this high estate
    without first suffering upon the cross made by joining these pillars together. The early Jews occasionally represented the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, as the legs of Jehovah, thereby signifying to the modern philosopher that Wisdom and Love, in their most exalted sense, support the whole order of creation–both mundane and supermundane”

    So, as many here have pointed out, we have the Twin Towers (Yachin and Boaz) pulverized, one into the other, and out of their ashes, rising in their place, is one tower/pillar that is the result of the destruction on 09-11. It’s name is “The Freedom Tower”

    I have more to say on alchemy, masonry and the occult, as it relates to what we observed on 09-11 and what we are witnessing today at ‘ground zero” Many of you know where this is going and I can’t wait to share with you our knowledge of this.

  2. As Pastor Mike Hoggard has pointed out, the number of outer points of the ground base that “The Statue of Liberty” is resting upon equals 11. There are other numbers involved with the base too, but Pastor Mike would have to explain it. Yes, very great Job Mark and Scott! Keep it coming 🙂

    1. The 7 rays on the Statue of Liberty’s head and the 11 points of the star she stands on relate 7:11, as in the height to base proportions on the Great Pyramid, and the famous convenience store’s name.

  3. Hi Scott thank you for sharing. I wonder how deep all this goes? I brought a book in the early nineties called PI in the sky that discusses the ancient aliments and the earth’s crystalline grid. The more I look at this enigma the more I see an understanding of resonance and 4D maths emerging. There has to be a reason in going to such great lengths (no pun intended) in aligning these buildings and monuments. One of the best ways to hide something from 3D conciousness is to make the solution 4D. The 2D to 3D map in the film ‘contact’ is an example of hiding things using a change of dimension. The real component of the fourth dimension as quoted by Stephen Hawkins in his book ‘A brief history of time’ is a direction in space. Have you looked at coordinates as well as distances? I wonder as with the great pyramid if any of these aliment vectors line up with objects in space? Just one more point, weaving spiders seems to suggest the wave function. As the game play appears to be keeping people unconscious to the wave side of physics, the masonic statement makes more sense as this knowledge is only imparted to those of 33 degrees and above, where believe it or not, a human/spider is used as a symbol.

  4. You da man Scott! Do you think 7:11 might hold a clue in a chapter 7 and verse 11 passage in my King James 1611 Bible? Or maybe even a chapter 11 verse 7? Later, I must try to find out

  5. Scott, regarding your comment above: “The 7 rays on the Statue of Liberty’s head and the 11 points of the star she stands on relate 7:11, as in the height to base proportions on the Great Pyramid, and the famous convenience store’s name” I did go to my King James 1611 Bible and searched out all the books to see what they had said at Chapter 7 Verse 11 and there is only one that seems to fit and that is found in the Book of Proverbs. But firstly, I just made another discovery; there are 19 books before Proverbs and 19 books after it. I wonder how that would also fit in with my comments I left yesterday (09-22-11) under your XX Blog Category. Anyways, on to the 7:11 discussion:

    King James 1611 Bible

    Proverbs Chapter 7 Verse 11:

    “She is loud and stubborn, her feet abide not in her own house” but it continues is verse 12: “Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner”

    What is weird, as I have never noticed it before, both the beginning and end of verses 11 and 12 are bracketed in a colon ( ) and this is done to emphasize that the content is important. It is also done to point you to the fact that these combined verses (11 and 12) are more important together, than the surrounding verses.

    This led me to wonder a bit further and immediately I added 11+12=23 which is half of the 46 chromosomes per cell in the human body. Pastor Mike Hoggard talks much about this subject of DNA and numbers etc, but this is the first time I had seen this number within this bible passage. As an example of his work, here is a link he has entitled “Reference Guide to Numbers in Scripture and their Symbolic Meaning” Why am I not surprised to see the number 23 having a symbolic meaning of “Death” listed there?

    Further, there are 27 words amongst those two verses. 27 can be arrived at thusly: 3x3x3=27

    Well, I decided to jump to verse 27 in Chapter 7 of Proverbs and it reads “Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death”

    In my paper copy of the Kings James 1611 Bible, I’m given concordance footnotes at the end of various verses to point you to other verses in the Bible that are related to the verse you just read. Proverbs Chapter 7 Verse 27 has none listed, yet Proverbs Chapter 5 Verse 5 does and it shows that Proverbs Chapter 7 Verse 27 is it’s concordant verse.

    King James 1611 Bible

    Proverbs Chapter 5 Verse 5:

    “Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell”

    Pastor Mike Hoggard talked about the Mystery Babylon Harlot and did reference Proverbs Chapter 5 and 7 regarding her; though there are many other passages in the Bible that do as well. We do need to read all the verses of any given chapter to understand more about the “her” “she” that the Bible describes and that one is very demonic.

    Some have suggested that the view from behind the “Statue of Liberty” on 09-11 looked like a burnt sacrifice offering was being presented to her. Food for thought I guess…

    1. No Joe, Cort didn’t discover any of the things in this post to the best of my knowledge. Cort is a friend and inspiration to me in any case. One of the things that Cort pioneered is looking at a structure and projecting lines along its edges or corners out into the world. For example Cort connected the NW and SE corners of the Great Pyramid and discovered that they trace a great circle to the Pyramid Arena in Memphis TN (see Consider also the fact that Memphis TN was named after Memphis Egypt.

  6. we are in a 3 dimensional situation and the divine starts at 5. our souls enter from 5 dimension. our physical bodies are at 3 dimensional and are 6 protons 6 electron 6 nuetrons and we are now having changes in our dna /rna to become a crystalline light body also mother earth is to be 5 dimensional. so the world as we have been led to believe is the lie of the ego. our father god would not put us in a place of suffering death or dis ease. thats why this is an illusion or a dream. the only glory is knowing it as so. and the transitions are being played out. one being the photon belt we will be in completly 21/12/12 also in 2013 the new sun aligns the earth the sun and uranus ( aquarius ) and the milky way which is the galatic tree of wonder why jesus was such a issue for the establishment.all we need to do is stop playing games of ego and relaise the bigger picture crop circles will be good this year see what the white light brotherhood directives are good luck

  7. Hello I am looking for information about the Mason expedition to the Tayos cave in which Neil Armstrong participated. I wanted to know if you know more as to where it might have been the objects removed or if you know more about the connection between the inhabitants of this cave and the Masons, and why they will have interez in it? Do you know where I could find more information about it?
    I leave a website with information if the case you do not know abaut it:
    and wiki:

  8. I also noticed that if you multiply the moon’s diameter in miles, 2160, by 1.6 to get the kilometers (not precise, all I knew off the top of my head) – you get 3456. Cosmic, eh?

  9. I am Seshat, Cannabis anthropomorphism and serve as a guiding light to all those who take my holy anointing oil. I am a talisman for
    the anointed initiate undergoing the energetic
    localizing experience of “Kundalini”(self as energy) awareness. Once awakened to your energy self, I pinpoint where on your spine your ascension path ends, and where the “Great Work” begins. Under the blanket of twilight, in total silence, I open the door of heaven for you.

  10. UN Sphere within a Sphere to Battery Park Great Spherical Caryatid measures 6666 meters – a nice round number.

  11. Anointed with the sacred oil, the initiate is assisted through an energetic awakening as Seshat symbolism reveals her mystery. Her cannabis/human anthropomorphism, her female – entheogenic nature, serve as a living talismanic experience, undergoing the “pinpointing” localized state of heightened energetic awareness, as she holds a baptismal firing of the spinal column, a stretching of the cord paralleling ever greater self knowing… into gnosis.

  12. What was ancient sacred art? Were hieroglyphs a poly-symbolic road mapping gateway technology to the inner kingdom? Are we finally waking up to humanity’s golden age legacy of time-tested rites of passage, direct experiences within one’s own divine energetic temple – the human body? Are they dormant symbols waiting to be awakened within us all?

  13. One way of bridging the abysmal divide between once having been a super advanced / yet extremely superstitious civilization, is by bringing ourselves back home to our grass roots, bark, leaves and bud, returning to foundational plant-based spirituality. Through the permitted and careful use of the Tree of knowledge, entheogens serve to heighten energy awareness, bypass the ego, allowing direct experience with the divine, into a holy energetic communion with our symbolic language.

  14. All high wisdom and schools of thought owe their respects
    to the original author, the original scribe – The Plant Entheogens – the Sacred Tree, the Tree of Life, The “Tree of Knowledge”.

    “And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22:1-2)

  15. Philip Patenaude :
    One way of bridging the abysmal divide between once having been a super advanced / yet extremely superstitious civilization, is by bringing ourselves back home to our grass roots, bark, leaves and bud, returning to foundational plant-based spirituality.
