## Comfortably Numbered

The imperial system (miles, feet, yards, furlongs, nautical miles, etc) seems to resonate with repeating sixes.  Earth’s diameter is  6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6!+6! miles.  6! is pronounced “six factorial” and is simply (1x2x3x4x5x6), which equals 720. The Moon’s diameter is 6! + 6! + 6! miles (2160).  Six-sixty-six is the number of the beast.  No number is inherently evil, but if you had to pick one it would definitely have to be six, which is why the word ‘hex’, means six. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666) –  The combined mean diameters of Earth and Moon, in miles, is equal to (six multiplied together nine times) divided by one thousand.  According to NASA this is % accurate.  With the polar or equatorial diameters, the correlation is still…

## Is Earth Convex, Flat, or Concave?

Do we live on the outside of a ball?  Do we live on a circular disc?  Or do we live on the inside of a sphere that houses our entire universe?   While this may sound absolutely ridiculous, there are some interesting things to learn just by asking these crazy questions. It’s OK to ask such a ridiculous question.  The authorities are often wrong, and usually programmed to believe half truths. Our society is backwards.  The things we have been led to believe in mainstream science, media, and our school books are usually a 180 degree perversion of the actual truth.  It’s not hard to see this for some subjects like traditional medicine, where we treat poisoned patients with more poison.  Or our political system, where we vote for a conservative or liberal puppet of a corrupt oligarchical corporatocracy we call ‘government‘.  But to say that our whole world is opposite of what…

## The Seven Liberal Arts

The seven liberal arts are the disciplines of study that the Pythagoreans taught in their mystery schools.  They’re the subjects or skills, that in classical antiquity were considered essential for a free person to cultivate to gain a solid foundation of their physical reality. (Latin: liberalis, “worthy of a free person”) The Trivium is made up of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric.  But not exactly in the sense of the words.  Grammar is information we gather, the “Who, What, When, and Where”.  Logic is the processing of that data and attempt to make sense of it.  It’s our reason and understanding.  Logic answers”Why”.  Rhetoric is the applying of knowledge to gain wisdom.  Rhetoric answers the “How”. The 7 Liberal Arts The Trivium:  (tri for three) Grammar (Who, What, When, Where) Logic (Why) Rhetoric (How) The Quadrivium (quad for four) Number Geometry (Number in Space) Music (Number in Time) Astronomy…

## The Philosopher’s Stone (d)

Manly P. Hall writes, The Philosopher’s Stone is an ancient symbol of the perfected and regenerated man whose divine nature shines forth through a chain of purified and unfolded vehicles. It is a term used to describe the Supreme Wisdom, the union of the divine consciousness or omniscient Solar Principle in man with the lower consciousness or personality, which union has been the goal of Initiates of all ages. Exoterically, the Philosopher’s Stone is the secret of the transmutation of the baser metals into gold. Esoterically, it is the transformation of the self.  This is what is known as the “Great Work”. “Make of a man and woman a circle; then a quadrangle; out of this a triangle; make again a circle, and you will have the Stone of the Wise.” In Michael Maier’s Atalanta Fugiens, a book of alchemical engravings by Johann de Bry,…

## The Golden Geometry of Phi

It’s important to understand where the most ubiquitous ratio in nature is found by using simple geometry.  The golden geometry of phi.  The divine proportion (the golden mean, Phi, the golden number, Fibonacci’s number) creates fractal expansion and contraction which creates life as we know it. The square root of five can sound scary, but when it is visually represented it’s not as frightening.  The square root of 5 (the cross section of a double square) is essential in the formula for Phi. It’s encoded everywhere from our dna to the geometry of a nautilus shell to the milky way.  Phi is found in plants though phyllotaxis,  or the way the leaves arrange themselves around the stem.  They rotate in golden angles. 222.5 degrees is golden among the 360. “The harmony of the world is made manifest in Form and Number, and the heart and soul…

## Happy Pi Day!

Pi is the relationship between a circle’s circumference and its diameter. Tau is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its radius. Pi = 3.141592653.. Tau = 6.283185307.. It’s been argued that Tau is a better value to use, but today let’s just talk about Pi , since it’s Pi Day! This post is being published, and this website is being launched, on 3/14/15 at 9:26 and 53 seconds, mountain time. Pi = 3/14/15-9:26:53… Technically it is Gregorian Pi Day, since our months are all screwed up. In the 16th century Pope Gregory, in his infinite wisdom, decided to change their order.  This is easy to see since the etymology of half of the months clearly indicates this.  January is the first month but this wasn’t always so.  March is actually the first month of the year which makes sense as Earth renews itself…

## 5040 The Perfect Number

Plato mentions in his Laws that 5040 is a convenient number to use for dividing many things (including both the citizens and the land of a state) into lesser parts.  Claiming it to be the ideal population of a city, he thought that the people’s well-being depended almost as much on the number as on justice.  5040 as it turns out is a very special number. One of the reasons 5040 was so highly revered was because it is a superior highly composite number.  Translation: No other number below it has as many divisors.  5040 has the same amount of divisors as there are minutes in an hour, or seconds in a minute.  5040 is a very practical number, being divisible by 1-12, except 11.  There are only ten of these rare numbers below a million, and it just so happens that the combined radii of Earth and…

## The Moon Pyramid

The Louvre is the Moon Pyramid.  It encodes canonical distances that relate to the moon.  This famous museum in Paris reveals esoteric wisdom but only for those with the eyes to see. The surface of the Louvre is covered in glass panes.  If we examine the angular measures of each glass polygon and sum them up we get the canonical distance between Earth and Moon, in miles.  The Moon doesn’t revolve around Earth in a perfect circle, it’s more of an ellipse.  When it is closer to Earth it is called perigee (close to Moon).  When the moon is farthest from Earth it is called apogee (apart from Moon).  These distances  are 225,622 miles and 252,088 miles respectively. On each of the four sides there are 153 rhombi and 18 triangles at the bottom. Rhombi have 360° in  their angles, and triangles contain 180°. 153 x 360° = 55,080° 18 x…
