The Cosmic Sequence

The following set of numbers comprise what I call the cosmic sequence:

27, 54, 108, 216, 432, 864, 1728, 3456

Each successive term is double the value of the preceding term.

The first term, 27, is equal to three cubed. Pythagoras said that three cubed represents the cosmos.

In Buddhism the traditional Great Retreat lasts for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days and the number 27 represents the highest level of knowledge in Rūpaloka, known as the world of form.

In the Kabbalah there are 27 letters, corresponding to 27 channels of communication with God. The Hebrew numeric system is additive, requiring 27 symbols (1-9, 10-90, 100-900), emphasizing formation from three nines.

There are 27 signs of the zodiac in Vedic astrology. See here.

The human hand has 27 bones…

…and strangely, many popular musicians are members of the 27 Club, meaning they died in their 27th year of life. 27 Club members include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and many others.


There are 54 years in a triple Saros cycle. In other words, it takes 54 years for the Sun, Moon and Earth to return to nearly identical celestial geometry such that an eclipse occurs on the same day and at the same time.

The Moon perfectly covers the Sun during a total solar eclipse.

A perfect round of golf scores 54 points, although this level of perfection has never been achieved in competition.

“I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.” -Annika Sörenstam

By the way, many golf balls are made with 432 dimples.

The Rubik’s Cube has 54 colored faces, a perfect cosmic puzzle.

108, 216, 432

Many of the bodies in our solar system resonate with terms in the cosmic sequence. Accuracy percentages are given in parentheses.

Saturn 108,000 km polar diameter (99.3%)
Saturn 10,800 day orbital period (99.6%)
Venus 108 million km orbital distance (99.8%)
Earth 108,000 km/hour orbital velocity (99%)

Sun’s diameter is approximately 108 Earth diameters (99%)
Earth averages 108 solar diameters from the Sun (99.5%)
Moon averages 108 lunar diameters from the Earth (98%)

Moon 2160 mile diameter (99.9%)
Earth 21,600 nautical mile meridian circumference (99.99%)

Jupiter 4,320 day orbital period (99.7%)
Jupiter 43,200 mile radius (99.4%)
Mars 4,320 mile diameter (98%)
432 x 432 = the speed of light in miles/sec (99.8%)




The Bible starts off with the famous story that God created the world in 6 days and then took a day off to rest and catch some rays.

6 days = 8640 minutes

Perhaps this is the purpose of the story, to encode the following information about SUN & DAY:

SUN diameter is 864,000 miles (99.8%)
DAY is 86,400 seconds (mean solar exactly)

In SIPS Volume 1 (Jerusalem part 1 episode) I show how the cubit that measures Jerusalem measures 1.728 feet. 1728 such cubits measure the sacred geometry of the city. The X’s in the diagram mark the holiest spots in Christianity (Golgotha) and Judaism (Holy of Holies inside Solomon’s temple).


The New Jerusalem dimensioned in the Book of Revelation is a cube having a volume of 1728 billion cubic furlongs.


The Earth’s polar radius is 3456 royal miles (99.99%), where a royal mile is 8/7 of a statute mile.

This straight of numbers reminds me of the following terrestrial connections in my post It’s About Time:

As I blogged in my post on 432 Park Avenue, physicist Ray Tomes discovered that powers of 34560 proportion the universe at vastly different scales:

  • If we take the average distance between moons and multiply it by a factor of 34560, we get the average distance between planets.
  • Take the average distance between planets, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between stars.
  • Multiply the average distance between stars by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between galaxies.
  • Take the average distance between galaxies, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the size of the known Universe.

David Wilcock summarized Ray Tomes’ research here.

Update 2 Oct 2015:

A spreadsheet of numbers Viktor from Sweden sent me inspired me to apply the 6:5 ratio to angular measure, which results in the cosmic sequence.

  1. It really seems impossible to arrange, should I say design the whole pf the Known Universe.
    One small addition: Golf number of 54. That indeed is what it is designed and aspired to BUT isn’t perfect 18…every Hole in One. X3 = 54

    1. why would you bother desecrating this page with your tripe? and just park it there for others to read? As if you should even have the nerve to tangentially associate yourself with these ideas. Cultural looters, everywhere you look.

      1. In Indian or vedic palmistry, the left hand represents the first 27 years of your life (in a right handed person). These first 27 years are meant to represent a legacy of karma being played out from your previous life. In horoscopic Astrology the Saturn return marks a period in your life of transition to adulthood responsibilities. This period can last a couple of years and often begins at the age of 27. These years are often filled with difficulty. Saturn’s orbit is 29.4 years. The ’27 club’ being the age where youth idols die may possibly due to their own difficulty in handling this transnational period influenced by Saturn. Possibly the age represents the closure of a karmic lesson continued from a previous life.
        I am not an astrologer, but I appreciate that ancient landmaks and measurements and were very much influenced by divination and astrology.
        I have to say Scott, that in my opinion secrets in plain sight is one of the greatest works of study and knowledge that I have ever come across on the internet. I think your work is on a par with ‘the Ancient secret of the Flower of Life’ by Dunvalho Melchizedek, and the quantum physics understandings of Nassim Haramein in his magnus opus ‘The Black Whole’.

    1. That is quite the cosmic cube! It is indeed composed of 216 small cubic elements and encodes the squaring of the circle, or is it the cubing of the sphere?

  2. empirical proof that the universe is perfect
    encoded knowing, awaiting the perceiver
    watching, waiting for the higher experience

    for now we build symbolic monuments in alignment
    starchildren playing with microcosmic coloured cubes
    And wonder still from whence this multitude came

    1. Another interesting thing is that, besides the first two numbers, 3×9 (trinity), 3×6 (duality), you then have 1-08, 2-16, 4-32, 8-64–which is essentially a series of numbers illustrating a sequence of progression from 8 to 8 squared. I find it probably more interesting than most just because 8 symbolically represents infinity.

  3. I was born on feb 27, 1954. My birth was 3 months premature. I came into the world at midnight. I have always felt I was special because I lived…and then factor the numerology and it was God’s plan…My memories are before my birth, and I feel intuitively a lot of the time…the hubble photos to me represent a glimpse of heaven and are proof of God.

  4. A score of 18 would be a perfect game of golf, but playing an even game of pitch and putt, whereby par is three strokes on each hole, is scoring 54.

    Also, in a standard deck of cards you have 52 cards of value and typically 2 jokers, which is 54. It’s even more interesting, though, because a deck of cards represents the phenomenal world; 52 cards, 52 weeks; 4 suits, 4 seasons; 2 colours, night and day.

      1. Very interesting. Yes, I knew 13 had something to do with it. Also if you divide 365 by 13, you get 28, the number of days of an average lunar cycle, which is just another way of looking at what you’ve already mentioned 🙂

  5. Scott, I am always amazed at your work, it is very Impressive to say the least.

    I was hoping you would check into a place that has a history that rivals that of any ever, and that would be Ethiopia. Even the ancient Egyptians claimed their gods came from the land of Punt, which is now Somalia and Ethiopia. As a matter of fact, please check this: Tiya, Ethiopia, with its ancient unkown rock stelae, one of them depicting the goddess hovering like Nut. Given how the Nile starts in Ethiopia, it would make sense the worship of these gods would flow downstream and end up in Egypt. The longitude is 8°26′ N 38°37’E.

    I am not a google earth expert, but totally trust your judgement and wonder if the grid is connected to this site. I am positive without even looking that Aksum and Lalibela are connected, and would love to see you do a piece on it.

    Somehow Ethiopia always finds a way to stay hidden, but plays deep into the big picture.

    Peace profound!

  6. Scott, as usual amazing job. I was hoping you would tie the grid to three important sites from maybe the most hidden of all ancient places, Ethiopia.
    Tiya, the place of some unknown ancient race who left behind stelae, one of which depicts the goddess Nut in her classic pose. Could the gods have come from Punt (
    Modern day Somalia and Ethiopia) like the ancient Egyptians mentioned? Makes sense since the Nile starts in Ethiopia that goddess/god worship would move and spread its way to Egypt. Also no doubt that lalibela and axum would be tied in. Indeed Ethiopia is a hidden gem of the ancient world and always manages to find a way under the radar.

    I think you would be the man to tie all of this together!

    Peace profound.

  7. Scott, great as usual. You might be aware of this already, but the distance in feet from the center of baalbek (“the head”) to the dome of the rock, is pretty much exactly 864 000.
    That´s probably old news, but there it is.

  8. Forgot to mention another one that might be “old school” (though it´s new to me). The distance from Monks´ mound at Cahokia mounds to Liberty Island is exactly 864 miles.
    I´ll keep on measuring!

  9. –quote–
    The Earth’s polar radius is 3456 royal miles (99.99%), where a royal mile is 8/7 of a statute mile.”
    –end of quote–

    interestingly, 8/7 infinitely repeats the six (6) numbers after the decimal point.
    8/7 = 1.142857142857……ad infinitum..
    hmmm, i wonder where this leads????

  10. You probably already know this, but if you add up the digits for the latitude of the center of the Grand Gallery inside the Great Pyramid you get the sum 55.

  11. PI & KABBALAh

    3*3 + 1*1 + 4*4 + 1*1 + 5*5 + 9*9 + 2*2 = 137



  12. Hello from Vancouver. I work at a community centre where we recently held a maala bead making workshop. As you know, there are 108 beads on a string of maala beads. I was asked to take photos of the workshop and the instructor allowed me to share the many 108 correspondences you’ve mentioned here and in your Internet radio interviews. The participants eyes opened a little wider and then they had a good chuckle when I told them that the room in which the workshop was being held was number 108.

    Your Leonardo book is great, by the way. And, while this is late in coming, it arrived on Christmas Eve and I was able to give it to the friend I bought it for on Christmas Day. Thanks for sending it so fast!

    1. That’s amazing your Maala workshop was held in room 108. I’m not that surprised as the universe seems to have a sense of humor in this way. Thanks for appreciating my Leonardo book also.

      1. Thank you, back. And just so you know, I informed the maala beading group that I’d gathered the 108 correspondences through your blog. Several of them wrote your name down so hopefully I’ve turned a few more people onto your research.

  13. Nice work. It helped me much. Been studying numbers for years and the G Pyramid is my hobby. Built by an advanced race I am sure as they used modern math in it. we need to teach this in schools as it would benifit man much.

  14. For a few years I’ve been itching to post this comment with a link to something special which is only now finished (I hope):

    Unravelling/decoding the correct Biblical calendar, I wrapped it around the base of the Great Pyramid, covering the last 13000 years since the previous Ice Age that lasted about 110 thousand years. It’s an interesting visually graphic Excel spread sheet, linked to a very basic website containing the supporting word document (which still has to be updated to the finished spread sheet).

    See: SPECIAL.xls

    I think that it helps answer at least some Secrets In Plain Sight !
