This post picks up where my last post left off when I was talking about the Devil at the center of Rockefeller Plaza. I trust you know this quote:
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. -Revelation 13:18
A score is twenty so the number of the beast is 666.
Right across the street from Rockefeller Center in NYC is 666 Fifth Avenue:

666 Fifth Ave was built by the Tishman family in 1957. There is an Isamu Noguchi sculpture in the lobby called Landscape of the Cloud.
In 1989 Ronald and Nancy Reagan retired to 666 St. Cloud Road in the Bel-Air district of Los Angeles. Nancy had the street number changed to 668. Ronald Wilson Reagan has 6 letters in each of the 3 names, making 666 by concatenation.
Here’s another interesting bible quote that resonates with the above cloud imagery. It’s also significant as the only mention of Lucifer in the bible:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. -Isaiah 14:12-14
Chad Stuemke’s brilliant analysis of the city of Detroit reveals that Isamu Noguchi’s fountain at the center of Hart Plaza is read literally as a stargate.
Noguchi also rang some designer bells for me because he is most famous for this table:
Only now do I understand the Noguchi table is a masterful design expressing as above, so below.
Tishman Realty eventually sold 666 Fifth Ave (which has the 6/5 thing going for it too) to Sumitomo, bought it back, and sold it again (now as Tishman Speyer Properties) for $1.8 billion in 2006.
$1.8 billion is the highest price ever paid for an individual building in Manhattan. -Source
The deal turned heads since the building at 483 ft is not even on the list of tallest buildings in New York City. However it is considered a trophy building because of its location on Fifth Avenue across from Rockefeller Center. -Source
In the year 2000 Jerry Speyer (a close friend of David Rockefeller), of Tishman Speyer Properties bought 14 buildings in Rockefeller Center from Mitsubishi for $1.85 billion.
That was quite a deal compared to the price of 666 Fifth Avenue. Think about that. 14 buildings and 8 million square feet of prime Manhattan real estate for the price of this rather unassuming “trophy.”
666 Fifth Avenue used to have three 6′s displayed at the top of the building and its penthouse was occupied by the Top of the Sixes restaurant (long gone now). Today the building has the Citgroup logo on its top as Citigroup is the building’s largest tenant.

Traveling from sea to shining sea, the number 666 reminds me of 666 Filbert Street, the address of the Peter and Paul Church in San Francisco which is known as “The Italian Cathedral of the West.”

Incidentally Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio posed for photographs on the steps of this church after their civil ceremony in 1954. DiMaggio was married to his first wife inside this church but because he divorced his first wife but didn’t get an annulment he wasn’t allowed inside with Marilyn. -Source
Speaking of pyramids, I analyzed the structure of the Louvre Pyramid in my Paris Part 1 video and discovered it has 666 symbolic rhombi in its design (not panes of glass as is commonly and incorrectly reported).
The Washington Monument is 6666″ in height and 666″ x 666″ at the base. Really.
Frank Albo discovered that not only is the Manitoba Legislative Building a replica of Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem but its central space measures 66.6 feet x 66.6 feet. I discuss this building in my Jerusalem Part 2 video.
Inside the Manitoba Legislative Building’s “cleansing room” measuring 66.6′ x 66.6′
This talk of Solomon’s temple and 666 reminds me of another bible quote:
Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold. -1 Kings 10:14
King Solomon with the Temple plans
Solomon (or Sol-Amun) received 666 talents of gold each year. A talent weighs 60 pounds so I just did the math and in today’s gold prices, Solomon raked in approximately $1.11 billion.
Independent researchers have valued the current assets of the Rockefeller family as high as $110 billion. -Source
Speaking of games, J.K. Rowling plays many games and encodes many secrets in her books. I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to my son a few months ago.
In Chapter 13 (of course) Hermione pulls out a book she “got from the library weeks ago for some light reading” to discover that Nicolas Flamel was the creator of the philosopher’s stone which can transform lead into gold and keep one alive forever. And…
“Flamel celebrated his six hundred and sixty-fifth birthday last year.” -Hermione
What age will that make him this year…anyone?
I should do another post on Harry Potter because there is so much to comment on but for now just consider his lightning scar…could it be “the mark of the beast”? Food for thought.
In reality, the birthplace of Nicolas Flamel was La Pontoise, France. -Source
Cergy-Pontoise is a new town built in the 1960′s consisting of 12 communes built next to the original settlement of La Pontoise.
Cergy-Pontoise has an area of 77.7 square kilometers. -Source
The place is loaded with secrets in plain sight and deserves it own post (or even a book), but I’ll really have to restrain myself and just point out a few things that relate to the current post.
Cergy was officially laid out with a Major Axis and a Minor Axis (this is even shown in the town’s signage). The point where the axes meet is called the Place of the columns Hubert Renaud which was designed by the famous architect Ricardo Bofill.
“Its origin is a tower, known as the “Tour Belvédère”, which is a phenomenal structure, rising to a height of 36 metres. Originally, the now square tower – with sides of 3.6 metres each – was going to be circular. It sits in the centre of a semi-circle of buildings, and at the centre of a ring of 360 paving stones, each 36 centimetres big. At its foot, the axis commences, cutting its way through an opening between the two semi-circular buildings, the passage having a width of 3.6 metres. The number 36 is obviously key in the overall design.” -Philip Coppens’ article “Mitterrand’s Great – Unknown – Work“
The ancient Egyptians recognized 36 constellations. They divided the year into 36 decans, or 10 day weeks, plus a festival of 5 or 6 days at the end of the year, recalling 6/5. The French tried to bring back this method of reckoning time with the French Republican Calendar but it didn’t survive when the political pendulum swung back the other way.

The sum of the numbers 1 through 36 is…wait for it…666.
The highest number on a roulette wheel is 36. This gives new meaning to gambling when you understand the numerology doesn’t it?
“The urge to gamble is so universal, and its practice so pleasurable that I assume it must be evil.” -Heywood Broun

As I mentioned in my Red Ice interview, Cergy’s major axis points to the French Pentagon. What I didn’t tell you is that Cergy’s minor axis points to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, 810 miles from the North Pole. This seems a bit overkill when we already have local community seed savers unless someone (maybe from the French Pentagon?) is planning for a global disaster. Chilling plans.

I feel that 666 is somehow related to all nine repeating series of 3 digits such as the 77.7 square kilometers of Cergy-Pontoise, the London Eye’s 444′ height or the fact that 555′ = 6660″. Recall from my videos and posts that the Millennium Tower in Portsmouth, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, and the Washington Monument in DC all use this latter measure in their designs.
In Babylonian sexagesimal (base 60) 111 = 666 in base 10.
This reminds me of the magic square of the Sun. Every row and column adds up to 111. I mentioned this in my Esoteric Astronomy video by the way. Everything is so interconnected.
Computing the total of the rows or columns leads to 666. Speaking of computation, the original Apple-1 computer sold for a very interesting price:
Wozniak is said to have chosen the price $666 and Jobs appended 66 cents to the total making it the digits entirely repetitive. Both have denied any significance to the price however. I beg to differ.
Steve Jobs resigned as Apple’s CEO yesterday, 24 Aug 11.
His resignation letter suggests that his liver transplant hasn’t worked out. Jobs’ synchromystic resonance with Prometheus (who had his liver eaten out) is undeniable. See my Ellipses post for more on Prometheus and this god’s correlations with Lucifer.
15 years ago Jobs returned to the nearly bankrupt company he founded to transform the decaying Apple into the world’s most valuable company. Did Jobs as high priest in the Cult of Mac sell his soul to the devil?
Who gave Eve the Apple that she took a bite out of (Apple Computer’s corporate logo)? How better to represent the light bearer than with a rainbow (Apple’s old logo from the 80s-90s)? The logo in the 1976 advertisement above features Isaac Newton sitting under the tree that dropped the famous apple on his head. Newton is said to have been enlightened by this event which occurred in the year 1666.
Newton was the first to split light into a rainbow using a prism and there is so much more to Newton than scientists would have you believe as I mention in my Stonehenge episode, and later in this post.
Steve Wozniak, one of the founders of Apple Computer is a sworn member of the Scottish freemasons. Wozniak describes his impetus for joining the Freemasons as being able to spend more time with his wife at the time, Alice. Alice belonged to the Order of the Eastern Star, [which allows female members and is] associated with the Masons. -Source
Here is the General Grand Chapter logo of the Order of the Eastern Star:
If you look closely you can see the word F-A-T-A-L along the inner pentagonal edges. This reminds me of the archetype of the femme fatale.
Salome by Franz von Stuck
The inverted pentagram design reminds me of the broken inverted pentagram in the streets over the White House…
…and the Devil Tarot card:
The World Wide Web that I’m presently looking at with an Apple computer was invented at CERN. The English letter W is equivalent to the Hebrew letter Waw:
So www is equivalent to 666 in terms of gematria and position within the Hebrew alphabet. Makes you think twice about www.domain.com.
Whose domain is the world wide web?
The name Cergy is the mirror of Ygrec. The French call the letter Y “y-grec”, meaning the Greek or Pythagorean Y which symbolizes the choice between good or evil. Note how the Phoenician equivalent of waw is a Y.
The CERN logo also seems to suggest 666 doesn’t it. Are you freaked out yet? There’s much more to CERN that I’ll post about later. Dan Brown tuned into this too in Angels & Demons.
Among other things, scientists at CERN are working on anti-gravity.
In the January 5, 2007 issue of Science (page 74), the report “Atom Interferometer Measurement of the Newtonian Constant of Gravity” (J. B. Fixler, G. T. Foster, J. M. McGuirk, and M. A. Kasevich) describes a new more accurate measurement of Newton’s gravitational constant.
According to the abstract: “Here, we report a value of G = 6.693 × 10^−11 cubic meters per kilogram second squared, with a standard error of the mean of ±0.027 × 10^−11.”
G = 6.666 x 10^-11 cubic meters per kilogram second squared is within the tolerance of error. Perhaps this is the true value of Newton’s gravitational constant?
I think Newton would be pleased with the latest scientific results. Newton couldn’t calculate G precisely due to the state of science in his day. The first test to determine G was conducted by Cavendish 111 years after Newton’s Principia was published.
Recall from my Great Pyramid video that Newton was both an alchemist and Grandmaster of the Priory of Sion who invented the first temperature scale that went from 0 to 33 degrees. Perhaps Newton’s G is the another meaning to the iconic freemasonic symbol? The Scottish freemasons do have 33 degrees after all.
Speaking of Sion, the Pope’s claim to authority literally comes from the Donation of Constantine, a Roman imperial decree by which the emperor Constantine supposedly transferred authority over Rome and the western part of the Roman Empire to the Pope.
During the Middle Ages, the document was often cited in support of the Roman Church’s claims to spiritual and earthly authority.
