- 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”
- 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”
- 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. Publisher Pages Description Reveals how the number science found in … Continue reading “Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels”
- A Pyramidion for the Great Pyramidimage: By 1200 BC, the end of the Bronze Age, the Egyptian map of the world (above) showed nine bows or latitudes, numbers 4 to 9 including the Nile Delta, Delphi, Southern Britain and Iceland, a map based on an ancient geodetic survey. This post explores a pyramidion, now lost, which exceeded the apex height … Continue reading “A Pyramidion for the Great Pyramid”
- Ethiopia within the Great PyramidMy last posting mentioned John Neal’s creative step of not averaging the Great Pyramid of Giza’s four sides, as had routinely been done in the past – as if to discover an idealized design with four equal sides. Instead, Neal found each length to have intensionally been different. When multiplied by the pyramid’s full height, … Continue reading “Ethiopia within the Great Pyramid”
- Units within the Great Pyramid of GizaThere is a great way to express pi of 22/7 using two concentric circles of diameter 11 and 14 (in any units). Normally, a diameter of 7 gives rise to a circumference of 22, when pi is being approximated as 22/7 (3.142587) rather than being the irrational number 3.141592654 … for then, the 14 diameter … Continue reading “Units within the Great Pyramid of Giza”

- Durrington Walls and its massive circle of PitsRecent analysis of animal bones within Durrington Walls indicated, to the archaeologists involved, that people had travelled there from all over the British mainland, along with animals then eaten inside the henge. But what would these people be doing there? It had earlier been suggested that an elite responsible for building Stonehenge lived in a … Continue reading “Durrington Walls and its massive circle of Pits”
- Fields, Racetracks and Temples in Ancient GreeceThe fields of ancient Greece were organised in a familiar way: strips of land in which a plough could prepare land for arable planting. Known in various languages as furlong https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furlong, runrig, journel, machen etc, in Greece there was a nominal length for arable strips which came to be associated with the metrological unit of … Continue reading “Fields, Racetracks and Temples in Ancient Greece”
- Use of Ad-Quadratum at Angkor WatAd Quadratum is a convenient and profound technique in which continuous scaling of size can be given to square shapes, either from a centre or periphery. The differences in scale are multiples of the square root of two [sqrt(2)] between two types of square: cardinal (flat) and diamond (pointed).
- The Three Worlds at Gavrinisfollowing on from previous post, an article by M Guillaume found inAAK Etudes et Travaux No. 1, 1977 Do these three stages [at Gavrinis] not correspond to the three creations, probably inherited by Celts, and those in Egypt, preceding access to a sanctuary?
- Gavrinis: On Crossing the Three Thresholds and Entering The Roomfollowing on within an article by M Guillaume found in AAK Etudes et Travaux No. 1, 1977 These half-circles facing upwards – do we not find them repeated a thousand times in the “necklaces” of the Goddess?
- Symbolic “forms in movement” at GavrinisIn this article M.Guillaume introduces some of the AAK’s work on understanding the Gavrinis chambered cairn. It appeared in the first volume of Etudes et Travaux, May 1977, pages 45-51. It has been translated from French as best I can, in three parts with links between. It was first re-published on the web between 2010-2012 to … Continue reading “Symbolic “forms in movement” at Gavrinis”
- Gavrinis 1: Its dimensions and geometrical frameworkThis article first appeared in my Matrix of Creation website in 2012 which was attacked, though an image had been made. Some of this material appeared in my Lords of Time book. Gavrinis and Tables des Marchands are very similar monuments, both in the orientation of their passageways and their identical latitude. Gavrinis is about 3900 metres east of Tables des Marchands but, unlike the latter, has … Continue reading “Gavrinis 1: Its dimensions and geometrical framework”
- The Golden Mean compared to PIIn reviewing some ancient notes of mine, I came across an interesting comparison between the Golden Mean (Phi) and PI. They are more interesting in reverse: A phi square (area: 2.618, side: 1.618) has grown in area relative to a unit square by the amount (area: 0.618) plus the rectangle (area:1 ). This reveals the … Continue reading “The Golden Mean compared to PI”
- Sacred Latitudes of the West 1.first published on Sunday, 19 September 2010 10:35 Adventures in Geodetic Imagination At the heart of Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization lay the story of the Secret Men of the North, which followed the west-to-east path of a European Michael line, in the sense of the original invasion of the Indo-Europeans of the Baltic into the Mediterranean … Continue reading “Sacred Latitudes of the West 1.”
- Iceland’s Model of the Earth’s MeridianEinar Palsson [1, at end] saw that the myths of foundation for Iceland’s settlement in 930 had Pythagorean roots. Since then Petur Halldorsson has identified patterns that could not have been influenced by Pythagoras (c. 600 BC) and Pythagoras was known to have adapted the existing number sciences found (according to his myth) from Egypt … Continue reading “Iceland’s Model of the Earth’s Meridian”
- Palsson’s Sacred Image in IcelandExtracted from The Structure of Metrology, its Classification and Application (2006) by John Neal and notes by Richard Heath for Bibal Group, a member of which, Petur Halldorsson, has taken this idea further with more similar patterns on the landscape, in Europe and beyond. Petur thinks Palsson’s enthusiasm for Pythagorean ideas competed with what was … Continue reading “Palsson’s Sacred Image in Iceland”
- John Michell’s Perpetual Choirs15 April 2017 Views: 10450 In 1972 John Michell inferred an enormous ten-sided form nearly sixty three miles across, in which important historical and neolithic sites had been intended as ten vertices around an ancient centre, signified by a Whiteleafed Oak. Michell had previously  developed the idea of the enchantment of the land as … Continue reading “John Michell’s Perpetual Choirs”
- Earth and Moon within Westminster’s Coronation PavementOur modern globes are based upon political boundaries and geographical topography yet they have geometrical predecessors, which described the world as an image, diagram or schemata. The original idea for the form of the world was summarised within a simple two dimensional geometry, like an eastern mandala or yantra. Such a diagram was built into the … Continue reading “Earth and Moon within Westminster’s Coronation Pavement”
