Gurdjieff’s Diagram of Everything Living

This popular post has been brought forward in the midst of other related posts, including Gurdjieff, Octave Worlds & Tuning Theory , an unpublished paper from 2018-19.

Numbers of a Living Planet

I have started to serialize a book idea online, since it throws light on the central theme of living on a planet with Life, including me, but in a culture that has lost its understanding (from the deep past) that the world was forged into a set of special number relations. These numbers gave the earth and its large moon resonant relationships with the other planets that are largely dismissed by science because causation is by forces and not through the properties of numbers. It is also problematic that astronomy today sees the sun as gravitational center (which it is) and that the traditional viewpoint of all pre-scientific civilizations and cultures was based upon a planetary universe that was earth-centered (geocentric), rather than sun centered (heliocentric).

New Beginning in providing videos

Since ClipChamp is available on Microsoft 365, I have been able to replace my broken video editor with this simple devise for making intermediate educational videos. To do this I wrote a few lines if text about how the Moon’s orbit could be tracked in the sky and how this naturally lead to 28 lunar mansions in some earlier astronomies, before the 12 signs of the Zodiac (thought to come from Mesopotamian astronomy to join our present constellations which collided with the Greece Myths to make our present organization of the stars in the night sky. This earlier 28-fold system of the lunar orbit appears to have been recognized as similar, upon the ecliptic, to the 28 synodic loops of Saturn in 29 practical years of 365 days.

Saturn’s “Measuring” of the Lunar Month

The Coronation Pavement of Westminster Abbey

Mosaic Pavements for crowning of kings and queens probably derive from a northern European and Mediterranean traditions, (a) of sacred king-making stones, in which a king would (for example) place his foot into a foot-shaped depression, and (b) the mosaic pavements of Roman villas and Orthodox churches. But an even older tradition seems to inform the Westminster pavement: a geometrical model of a circle and square of equal perimeter. This geometry conforms to the relative sizes of the earth and moon as an 11-unit side length and the equal-perimeter circle’s diameter (14 units ) minus 11 units so that the moon is diameter 3. for more, see this article on the design of King Charles III coronation pavement.

Grids of Squares & Flattened Circles

There is a common approach in ancient building based upon the establishment of a grid of squares, as a framework for the geometrical construction of buildings, from stone circles to Egyptian and Greek temples, to Roman and Orthodox Basilicas, and to Gothic and Enlightenment buildings, plus in Indian temples. Just as one builds foundations, all that is inside a building is controlled by numerical ideas. I have therefore published some work I did to show how flattened circle, in megalithic times, could have used what came to be Egyptian methods for laying out building works and to not always depend on the ropes and stakes of the free style geometrical construction which led to analytical geometry, compass and straight edge.

Peat Fires revealing Rock Art

There have been a number of large peat moor fires in England and one of these in North Yorkshire revealed a few megalithic sites. I have republished my own interpretation of a significant pattern made on a major flat stone as part of an egg-shaped stone circle. The egg can be seen in the work of Alexander Thom as based on the near-Pythagorean triangle with sides {17 17 24.0416}. When Thom’s plan is laid over that of the excavation (Rock Art and Ritual by Brian Smith and Alan Walker), one can see there is a close fit to the excavated site. When the egg is expanded to fit the line drawn by the excavators, the units of the geometry are 1/2 foot (6 inches) so that 17 = 102 inches (8.5 feet), 24 = 144 inches (12 feet) and 12 = 72 inches (6 feet), possible by overlaying different plans, one with the scale shown!

Geometry of the stone egg where the rock art was found on one of its stones. Note the alignment of the egg’s axes to the cardinality of the sun’s solstice extremes at that latitude.

Chalk Drums to generate pi

When I joined the Prehistoric Society for a year, an article about megalithic chalk drums being found with strange decoration which may depict PI, since their diameter allows rolling them to count out a given type of foot measure. This may be why some are not carved because they were heavily used while others could have been metrological standards, not as rods but as cylinders that do not required end-to-end counting but continuous counting, providing one can count!

Angkor Wat as west-facing observatory

I have been doing work on Angkor Wat, something I never got around to after a first introductory post about nested squares there. Both Lords of Time and Language of the Angels were to have included it. Eleanor Mannikka, spent 20 years on a numerical analysis of its architecture and there is an amazing set of French plans by G. Nafilyan. I looked at the temple as an observatory, since it looks west as aligned towards the sun and moon setting on the horizon, which appears to have been part of its intended use. Settings are easier to work with that risings, since there is plenty of warning of settings as sun or moon slowly travel every day towards the western horizon.
