My thanks to Taylor Morgeson for discovering another Secret in Plain Sight after watching my videos. Taylor is teaching music theory and finishing up his thesis at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton.
First of all, Denton is at 33°13’N latitude. The numbers 33 and 13 are obviously both very important to freemasons.
Taylor says that if you draw a line from the center of the fountain in the linear complex in front of the UNT Administration building…
…to the golden boy atop the Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg, the bearing is 0.00°, perfectly true North.
I profiled the Manitoba Legislative Building (MLB) in my Jerusalem Part 2 video because it is a freemasonic replica of Solomon’s Temple. Frank Albo has written a book called “The Hermetic Code” about the MLB and he also gives tours of the building when he’s in his home town:

Perhaps the MLB inspired the soon to be Dr. Albo to get his PhD in Architectural History, which is what he is working on now at Cambridge. Frank also became a freemason to see what else he could discover.
Winnipeg is the center of North America. The MLB is thus its geodetic center.
Taylor Morgeson also points out that if you draw a triangle connecting the MLB with UNT and Phoenix Arizona (which is also on the 33rd parallel) the angle at the top of the triangle on Google Maps measures 33°. I verified this in SketchUp.
I noticed that the triangle looks like a Pythagorean 3:4:5 triangle under the spherical projection of Google Earth. This is close but not exact because the lines are actually sections of great circles whose centers are at the center of the Earth.
Taylor tells me there’s another very interesting building at UNT’s College of Music called the Winspear Auditorium, part of the Murchison Performing Arts Center whose axis is also oriented North-South:
Here’s what it looks like inside…

This building seems to be a temple of the pentagon/pentagram. A temple of music and of life, that’s beautiful.
I used the line tool in Google Earth to measure the distance from the pentagonal window on the north side of the Winspear Auditorium to the south door of the MLB in Winnipeg.
This distance is 6,055,555 feet.
Please see my post on The Snowflake and the Flower to understand the significance of the above distance.
Here’s a video Taylor made of his alma mater. Check out “The Sustaining Arch” and how it aligns with the jet of water from the fountain and the tower on the top of the UNT Administration building. This line continues all the way to the MLB.
