Mercury Earth Music of the SPheres

The orbits of Mercury and Earth and be described in this way. Draw a square around the orbit of Mercury. Surround this square with a circle. Do the same and draw another square around this circle. On the four corners of this larger square, draw four circles with radii that reach the last circle you drew. One more step. Draw a large circle around the four smaller circles. You just defined Earth’s orbit to 99.9% accuracy. The other planets in the solar system also show geometric relationships.  Geometry is number in space, and Music is number in time.  The solar system echoes these fundamentals of the Quadrivium through their orbital periods, sizes, and distance from the Sun.  Kepler discovered that the planets’ orbits neatly fit inside of nested platonic solids.  He called this Mysterium Cosmographicum.  Pythagoras and his buddies called it the Music of the…

Saturn and Neptune

Saturn and Neptune

The orbits of Saturn and Neptune can be displayed in this simple diagram. Inscribe an equilateral triangle inside the orbit of Neptune. Now fit three equally sized circles within that triangle. Add another one of these circles to the middle of the diagram and you just defined Saturn’s orbit to within 99.9% accuracy. Is this all really just a coincidence? Mainstream cosmology will tell us that it is all chance. Planets are made of matter that eventually, over millions of years, slammed together to form a mindless sphere. Is that all it really is? How did the planets know to organize themselves according to geometric shapes and platonic solids? It seems that the solar system and the whole universe itself is not this dead unconscious matter that we have been led to beLieve. “Geometry existed before the creation. It is co-eternal with the mind…

Jove and Ares – Jupiter and Mars

Jove and Ares

Jupiter and Mars’ orbit can be shown in this simple diagram. If you draw a square inside of Jupiter’s orbit and then draw 4 circles on each corner of the square so they all touch, then you will have the orbit of Mars within 99.98% accuracy. This tidbit of gnosis was obtained from the book “A Little Book of Coincidence in the Solar System” by the brilliant John Martineau. Also check out the geometry in Saturn and Neptune.

Squaring the Circle

Square the Circle

Squaring the circle is the age old problem of constructing a square with the same area(or perimeter) as the circle. Greek mathematicians attempted to solve this ancient riddle using a ruler and compass only. Due to the transcendental nature of π we can only approximate this geometry.  Earth, Moon, the Great Pyramid, and Stonehenge all encode this great philosophical quandary. Stonehenge encodes the squared circle through its bluestones, named so because when it rains they turn blue.  If we draw a square around this circle of stones it will have the same perimeter as the sarsen ring of stones on the very outside.  The ancients preserved esoteric gnosis in their sacred buildings as a way to ensure that the information would never be lost or occulted by the greed of mortal men. “ A tradition which has been credited by many learned men over the centuries is that…

Pi in the Solar System

Jupiter Saturn Uranus Pi

There are an awfully lot of ‘coincidences’ in our solar system to say that it is all just a product of time and chance. Materialist and reductionist theories and their slew of primordial soup doesn’t quite suffice when one ponders the magnificence of all life. Pi is the relationship between a circle’s circumference to its diameter.  It comes out to 3.14159..   Why wouldn’t the creator or the architect of the universe make it a little easier on us and just made it 3, or 4?  Why does it have to be a transcendental number that goes on and on?  The fact that π has no pattern and the digits continue to infinity probably drove early philosophers and mathematicians madd.  This irrationality is echoed in the cells of our body and the planets in our solar system.  Concurring with the Hermetic axiom, As above so below. There…

Quicksilver and Gaia

Mercury Earth geometry

Delivering a swift blow to the accidental and nihilistic paradigm of existence, synchronistic correlations in the cosmos break the already crumbling model of mainstream cosmogony.  The physical sizes of Earth and Mercury (Gaia and Quicksilver) are in proportion to their mean orbits. Just another ‘coincidence’ to add to the akashic records of synchronicity… or reflective of an intelligent, creative, and loving cosmogonic principle, where we are not the result of some ‘big bang’ that sprang from nothing, for no particular reason, at no point in time (since it ostensibly created time) “ Where plants have five-fold patterns, a consideration of their Souls is in place. For patterns of five appear in the regular solids, and so involve the ratio called the Golden Section, which results from a self-developing series that is an image of the faculty of propagation in plants. Thus the flower carries…

Mercury, Venus, Musica Universalis

Mercury and Venus Music of the Spheres

Mercury, Venus, Musica Universalis. The Music of the Spheres. The Musical Harmony of the Planets. Mercury makes beautiful music. If you’re on Mercury it takes two years to experience one day. This 2:1 ratio is what’s called the ‘perfect octave’ in music theory. It is also encoded into the geometry of a triangle. The circle inside a triangle is exactly one half the size of the circle outside it. Coincidentally (or not) the triangle also defines the orbital relationships between Mercury, and the next planet out, Venus. The perfect octave is the first harmonic interval followed by the ‘perfect fifth’ which is also extremely pleasant to the human ear. This 3:2 ratio is reflected in the temporal patterns of Mercury. Every two ‘years’, Mercury rotates on its axis three times, which suggests the concept of the ‘Music of the Spheres’ was meant to be…

(Phi)ve and the Fibonacci Sequence

We are fractal beings of nature. We have five extremities, each having five fingers or five toes. Our heads have five openings, two nostrils, two ears, and one mouth. The essence of five creates (phi)ve. The Fibonacci Sequence. the Golden Mean, Divine Proportion, 1.618…. Ubiquitous to our existence, this ratio is the seed of life and the key to understanding how nature operates. The Fibonacci Sequence and the golden number, Phi(and phee) are closely related to the number five. The flower of every edible fruit has five petals.  We are frugivorous by nature and the apple is the forbidden fruit. Cut one in half at its equator to reveal a pentagram of five seeds. Five is found wherever there is life, and wherever there is life there is (phi)ve. “Man is born of the stars. With the 5 extremities from his torso and his 5 material…
