Sacred Numbers of a Living Planet

Counting astronomical time led to a key megalithic discovery; that our world and its skies reflect the structural properties of whole and transcendent numbers.

  • The Approximation of π on Earth
    π is a transcendental ratio existing between a diameter/ radius and circumference of a circle. A circle is an expression of eternity in that the circumference, if travelled upon, repeats eternally. The earths shape would be circular if the planet did not spin. Only the equator is now circular and enlarged, … Continue reading “The Approximation of π on Earth”

    There are plans to walk again on the moon (above is a NASA visualization), but there is a sense in which the surface of the moon belongs to the surface of the earth, since the earth’s circumference is 4 times the mean diameter of the earth, minus the moon’s circumference. The … Continue reading “Walking on the Moon”
