## 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…

## Squaring 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…
