In no particular order, here are some new images I’ve created recently. I posted these on my Facebook wall but they quickly got lost in the ephemeral feed. This blog is a much better repository for this research.
It turns out that the following 6:5 relationship in the Pyramid of Khafre is 99.9% accurate. The discovery was made by Peter Casperson in his book Den Matematiska Nyckeln Till Guds Namn (which translates from Swedish as “The Mathmatical Key to God’s Name”) published in 2004. The illustration is my own. The 6:5 relationship ties in with what I’ve written before in Taking Measure, the Snowflake and the Flower, and Cubits, among other blog posts.
The outer perimeter of the egg’s cross-section is 33,333 feet assuming the eggshell has thickness of ~5 feet at the scale of the Great Pyramid. I made a similar oval image a few years ago called The Megalithic Egg but it was based on the 3:4:5 triangle instead.
“It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.” -Aristotle
I made a round image (with Photoshop’s polar filter) of moai on Easter Island looking into the center, and then felt inspired to have them look at the Orion nebula. The 15 moai fit the stages of the alchemical process and I took the stage names from a fantastic novel by Katherine Neville called The Eight that I was re-reading. The philosopher’s stone naturally fits in the center as the final goal of al-kemi. I was playing with the swirling colors as seen above in the nebula or below in the chemicals of the alchemist’s cauldron. Are we looking into the heavens or deep within? They end up in the same place: awareness.
Here is a full accounting of our solar system:
Is this the basis of the Fahrenheit scale, why water boils at 212°?
It’s interesting also that 33°F = .55555…°C
Here’s a discovery I made some time ago but don’t think I’ve posted it in the blog before. The Governor’s mansion at the top of Victoria Peak overlooking Hong Kong is 3333.3 km from Borobudur. Amazing distance between city mountains: sacred and mundane!
The Eye of Horus symbolizes the view of an observer, as an all-seeing-eye.
Philosophy is written in this grand book, the universe, which stands continually open to our gaze. But the book cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and read the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without these one is wandering in a dark labyrinth.
—Galileo Galilei, The Assayer, 1623

The traditional Buddhist retreat lasts for 3 years, 3 months and 3 days. Make sense?
I was Graham Hancock’s author of the month for September 2014 and wrote the following article called Measuring the Mystery.
I wrote an article called Mathematical Encoding in the Great Pyramid on Ancient-Origins.net.
Here is the universal accounting, according to cosmologists. They actually give slightly different values but I looked at the uncertainty in the measurements and think the following percentages are the canonical values, as they fit within the tolerances of the measured data:
We can’t measure dark matter or dark energy. They pass through ordinary matter without interacting. Cosmologists needed something to explain why galaxies and galactic clusters don’t fly apart so they invented “dark matter”. Then they needed something to explain why expansion is accelerating so they invented “dark energy”. These quantities are more of a measure of our ignorance. However, regardless of whether dark energy and dark matter turn out to be like epicycles in earlier cosmological models, the math needed to account for our observations is balanced using the above breakdown, and I find that very interesting.
Urban Asplund discovered that the distance from the “Pyramids of the North” at Old Uppsala, Sweden is 3333.33 miles (99.99%) to the Obelisk of Axum, Ethiopia (which was stolen and moved to Rome for most of the 20th century and returned and re-erected in Ethiopia in the 21st century).
“The enormous usefulness of mathematics in the natural sciences is something bordering on the mysterious and…there is no rational explanation for it.” -Eugene Wigner, nobel laureate
“How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?” -Albert Einstein
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” -Niels Bohr
“The most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.” -Introduction to the Principia by Isaac Newton
Here is the proof, chocolate is a very close cousin to happiness. You knew that already!
There is actually a minimum and a maximum temperature. Absolute zero is the coldest possible temperature where there is absolutely no movement. The temperature of the big bang has been calculated as 33 orders of magnitude hotter than absolute zero, as measured in degrees Kelvin. At this maximum temperature all four forces (gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak) merge into one force and the fabric of spacetime itself is thought to dissolve into nothingness.
Quantum foam (also referred to as space-time foam) is a concept in quantum mechanics devised by John Wheeler in 1955. The foam is supposed to be conceptualized as the foundation of the fabric of the universe. This “foam” is the smallest measurable length, representing the granularity of spacetime itself. The human eye is 33 orders of magnitude larger than the quantum foam.
John Michell discovered that 10 times the perimeter of the blue hexagon equals the mean distance from Earth to Moon (99.4%). Even more accurately, that’s 6 x 60 x 666 miles (99.6%).
“Several words derive from Amun via the Greek form, Ammon, such as ammonia and ammonite. The Romans called the ammonium chloride they collected from deposits near the Temple of Jupiter Amun in ancient Libya sal ammoniacus (salt of Amun) because of proximity to the nearby temple.” The Colossoi of Memnon stand at the entrance to what was once the Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III. The name Amenhotep means “Amun is satisfied.” The name Amun meant something like “the hidden one” or “invisible”. -wikipedia
The Brandaris connection was discovered by Shannon van den Heuvel:
The royal Egyptian cubit is approximately this same distance, .5236 meters or 1.718 feet (99.4%). I think it is precisely expressed as (6/5)^3 feet or 1.728 feet exactly (see Cubits).
Peter Stanbury discovered the following relationships of the proton to electron mass ratio and the fine structure constant’s relationships to pi. I added the neutron to electron mass ratio and the boxed equation. Taken together, we see how pi, phi and mathematical ratio are fundamental to matter. All is number.

The molecular weight, specific heat capacity and temperature of air control how fast sound waves propagate through the atmosphere. At 3.3°C the speed of sound in air is 333.3 m/s and if the wavelength is 1/3 of a meter, the resulting frequency is exactly 1000 cycles per second, the center of human hearing. The meter, the second, base 10, and the qualities of our atmosphere conspire to produce this metrological sonic harmony.
I keep adding to this post, so check back again sometime.
