- The Geocentric Planetary MatrixHarmonic Origins of the World inserted the astronomical observations of my previous books into an ancient harmonic matrix, alluded to through the harmonic numbers found in many religious stories, and also through the cryptic works of Plato. Around 355 BC, Plato’s dialogues probably preserved what Pythagoras had learnt from ancient mystery centers of his day, … Continue reading “The Geocentric Planetary Matrix”
- Agni, the Indian God of FireThose new to Ernest McClain and his The Myth of Invariance, should know this book was a seminal work for anyone in my generation, that opened up a Pythagorean vision; of how number operates in the domain of harmony. This world of harmony can be numerically defined in a quite extraordinary and specific way and … Continue reading “Agni, the Indian God of Fire”
- Sir Francis Bacon and Codesfrom Digital Codes and Converters, the 1961 Ph.D. Thesis of F.G. Heath at the Victoria University of Manchester. Read optically for a colleague many years ago, it is provided here as interesting; touching upon the authorship of Shakespeare and other Elizabethan texts and poems. It also shows how cryptography then awaited the computer to create … Continue reading “Sir Francis Bacon and Codes”
- A Yoga drawn from Celestial MetaphorThe sun of the mind at dawn rises from the grip of not knowing. The sun of the mind at dusk drops into exhausted non-attachment. This “metaphor” was all too real in the India that gave birth to Yoga, since the light of the sun illuminates the objects conceptualized by the mind. Through the illumination … Continue reading “A Yoga drawn from Celestial Metaphor”
- The Richard Syrett Interviews on Sacred Geometry: Language of the AngelsI recently recorded a podcast with Richard Syrett and will be talking with him again today (January 2nd) on Coast to Coast, starting 10pm Pacific time. In the UK, this is tomorrow (Sunday the 3rd) at 6am GMT. Both these interviews are in response to my new book Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels, which … Continue reading “The Richard Syrett Interviews on Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels”
- Evolving Intelligence of the Biosphere:An Essay from DuVersity Newsletter 35 – 2014 The Light and Dark, as Value and Fact, could be viewed as reconciled by an evolved mind, within the biosphere. They could indeed be the cause of the arising of proto-minds, since existential situations in the Biosphere are of value for its beings whilst being factual. As … Continue reading “Evolving Intelligence of the Biosphere:”
- On the Harmonic Origins of the WorldAfter the ice receded, late Stone Age people developed the farming crucial to the development of cities in the Ancient Near East (ANE). On the Atlantic coast of Europe, they also developed a now-unfamiliar science involving horizon astronomy. Megalithic monuments were the tools they used for this, some still seen in the coastal regions of … Continue reading “On the Harmonic Origins of the World”
- Jupiter’s gravitational and numerical influenceThis post begins a Theme relating to the Trigon event occurring on 21st December 2020, when Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct at dusk in the sky. This touches upon what such synchronicities mean for other long term periods seen from Earth, such as the Moon’s nodal period of 6800 days and even the Precession of … Continue reading “Jupiter’s gravitational and numerical influence”
- Before, during and after Sacred Geometryabove: Carreg Coetan Arthur portal dolmen in Newport, Pembrokeshire. The prehistory of sacred geometry was the late stone age, when the stone circles, dolmens, and long alignments to astronomical events on the horizon, used megaliths (large stones) in geometrical ways. Their geometries served their quest to understand the heavens, without telescopes or arithmetic, by using … Continue reading “Before, during and after Sacred Geometry”
- from Book 5: Harmonic Origins of the WorldIntelligent Star Systems The harmony of the spheres can only be found in our world of time, where it is a strong and compelling phenomenon. Such a harmony was no prescientific fantasy. Pythagoras, who coined the term, probably did so based on the geocentric time world, a view lost to history apart from cryptic references … Continue reading “from Book 5: Harmonic Origins of the World”
- Gavrinis R8: Diagram of the Saros-Metonic CycleThe Saros cycle is made up of 19 eclipse years of 364.62 days whilst the Metonic cycle is made up of 19 solar years of 365.2422 days. This unusually small number of years, NINETEEN, arises because of a close coupling of most of the major parameters of the Earth-Sun-Moon system which acts as a discrete system, a system also commensurate … Continue reading “Gavrinis R8: Diagram of the Saros-Metonic Cycle”
- What stone L9 might teach usimage of stone L9, left of corridor of Gavrinis Cairn, 4Km east of Carnac complex. [image: neolithiqueblog]This article was first published in 2012. One test of validity for any interpretation of a megalithic monument, as an astronomically inspired work, is whether the act of interpretation has revealed something true but unknown about astronomical time periods. The Gavrinis … Continue reading “What stone L9 might teach us”
- Astronomy 3: Understanding Time Cyclesabove: a 21-petal object in the Heraklion Museum which could represent the 21 seven-day weeks in the 399 days of the Jupiter synod. [2004, Richard Heath] One of the unfortunate aspects of adopting the number 360 for calibrating the Ecliptic in degrees is that the megalithic counted time in days and instead saw the ecliptic … Continue reading “Astronomy 3: Understanding Time Cycles”
- Geometry 7: Geometrical Expansionabove: the dolmen of Pentre Ifan (wiki tab) In previous lessons, fixed lengths have been divided into any number of equal parts, to serve the notion of integer fractions in which the same length can then be reinterpreted as to its units or as a numerically different measurement. This allows all sorts of rescaling and … Continue reading “Geometry 7: Geometrical Expansion”
- Geometry 6: the Geometrical AMYBy 2016 it was already obvious that the lunar month (in days) and the PMY, AMY and yard (in inches) had peculiar relationships involving the ratio 32/29, shown above. This can now be explained as a manifestation of day-inch counting and the unusual numerical properties of the solar and lunar year, when seen using day-inch … Continue reading “Geometry 6: the Geometrical AMY”
- Astronomy 2: The Chariot with One WheelWhat really happens when Earth turns? The rotation of Earth describes periods that are measured in days. The solar year is 365.242 days long, the lunation period 29.53 days long, and so forth. Extracted from Matrix of Creation, page 42. Earth orbits the Sun and, from Earth, the Sun appears to move through the stars. … Continue reading “Astronomy 2: The Chariot with One Wheel”
- Astronomy 1: Knowing North and the Circumpolar Skyabout how the cardinal directions of north, south, east and west were determined, from Sacred Number and the Lords of Time, chapter 4, pages 84-86. Away from the tropics there is always a circle of the sky whose circumpolar stars never set and that can be used for observational astronomy. As latitude increases the pole … Continue reading “Astronomy 1: Knowing North and the Circumpolar Sky”
- From Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angelsfrom Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels, Appendix 1. (Available: first few weeks of 2021) This is relevant to many on-site posts. Metrology has appeared in modern times (phase five below) in reverse order, since humankind saw the recent appearance of many measures in different countries as indicative that past cultures made up units of … Continue reading “From Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels”
- The Discovery of a Soli-Lunar Calendar Device at Le Manioby Robin Heath In 2009 I returned to Plouharnel, again for the Solstice Festival, and undertook my own research both before and after the four day event. Howard Crowhurst had undertaken a great deal of theodolite and tape work at a well known site called Le Manio. This collection of surviving monuments forms an exceptionally … Continue reading “The Discovery of a Soli-Lunar Calendar Device at Le Manio”
- Le Site Mégalithique du Manio à Carnacby Howard Crowhurst Perched on a hill in the forest north of the Carnac alignments, a megalithic site has escaped the fences that have littered the landscapes of the region for several years. These are the menhir and the quadrilateral of Manio. From the outset, the large menhir impresses with its dimensions. Nearly 5m50 high, … Continue reading “Le Site Mégalithique du Manio à Carnac”
- Day-inch counting at the Manio QuadrilateralIt is 10 years since my brother and I surveyed this remarkable monument which demonstrates what megalithic astronomy was capable of around 4000 BC, near Carnac. The Quadrilateral is the earliest clear demonstration of day-inch counting of the solar year, and lunar year of 12 lunar months, both over three years. The lunar count was … Continue reading “Day-inch counting at the Manio Quadrilateral”
- Geometry 5: Easy application of numerical ratiosabove: Le Manio Quadrilateral The last lesson showed how right triangles are at home within circles, having a diameter equal to their longest side whereupon their right angle sits upon the circumference. The two shorter sides sit upon either end of the diameter (Fig. 1a). Another approach (Fig. 1b) is to make the next longest … Continue reading “Geometry 5: Easy application of numerical ratios”
- pdf: Synchronicity of Day and Year with the Lunar OrbitThis document was prepared by Richard Heath as a letter for Nature magazine and submitted on 14th April 1994 but remained unpublished. For readers of the Matrix of Creation (2nd ed, Inner Traditions Press, 2004) it marks the discovery of a unit of time proposed and named the Chronon, as being 1/10000th of the Moon’s … Continue reading “pdf: Synchronicity of Day and Year with the Lunar Orbit”
- pdf: Counting lunar eclipses using the Phaistos DiskThis paper* concerns itself with a unique fired-clay disk, found by Luigi Pernier in 1908 within the Minoan “palace” of Phaistos (aka Faistos), on the Greek island of Crete. Called the Phaistos Disk, its purpose or meaning has been interpreted many times, largely seen as either (a) a double-sided text in the repeated form of … Continue reading “pdf: Counting lunar eclipses using the Phaistos Disk”
- pdf: Astronomical Musicality within Mythic NarrativesAncient musical knowledge came to Just tuning long before Greek music, in Babylonia. It now seems likely that two sources of musical information, were involved in an early tradition of musical tuning by number: firstly, the early number field is the original template upon which musical harmony is based; and secondly, the prehistoric geocentric astronomy … Continue reading “pdf: Astronomical Musicality within Mythic Narratives”
- Geometry 4: Right Triangles within CirclesThis lesson is a necessary prequel to the next lesson. It is an initially strange fact that all the possible right triangles will fit within a half circle when the hypotenuse equals the half-circles diameter. The right angle will then exactly touch the circumference. From this we can see visually that the trigonometrical relationships, normally … Continue reading “Geometry 4: Right Triangles within Circles”
- Geometry 3: Making a circle from a counted lengthThe number of days in four years is a whole number of 1461 days if one approximates the solar year to 365¼ days. This number is found across the Le Manio Quadrilateral (point N to J) using a small counting unit, the “day-inch”, exactly the same length as the present day inch. It is an … Continue reading “Geometry 3: Making a circle from a counted length”
- Preface: The Metrology of the Brochsfeature picture: Broch of Mousa. The broch on the island of Mousa is the best-preserved of the many brochs in northern Scotland. It is thought to be some 2000 years old credit: Anne Burgess / Broch of Mousa / CC BY-SA 2.0 I wrote this preface for Euan MacKie who had resurrected his work on measures found within the brochs … Continue reading “Preface: The Metrology of the Brochs”
- Sacred Number and the Origins of CivilizationPublished by Inner Traditions Back Cover ANCIENT MYSTERIES / NEW SCIENCE “Richard Heath sweeps away the mechanistic and relativistic paradigm to reveal an earth-centered, celestial system founded upon the beauty of musical harmony and geometric symmetry.”–Robert Lawlor, author of Sacred Geometry and Voices of the First Day “Richard Heath effectively rewrites the book on the mysterious but accomplished … Continue reading “Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization”
- Sacred Number and the Lords of TimeBack Cover ANCIENT MYSTERIES “Heath has done a superb job of collating his own work on the subject of megaliths with the objective views of many other researchers in the field. I therefore do not merely recommend reading this book but can state unequivocally it is a must read.”–John Neal, British metrologist and researcher and … Continue reading “Sacred Number and the Lords of Time”
- The Harmonic Origins of the World“We have long known, thanks to Ernest McClain, that the ancients were obsessed with harmonic numbers and that the Bible encodes these from beginning to end. Now new evidence appears, as these numbers correlate with the planetary periods, and their discovery is pushed far back into the prehistoric era. Richard Heath’s work, based not on … Continue reading “The Harmonic Origins of the World”
- Sacred Geometry: Language of the AngelsExamining the angelic science of number, Richard Heath reveals how the development of human consciousness was no accident. The beauty and elegance we see in sacred geometry and in structures built according to those proportions are the language of the angels still speaking to us.
