Angkor Wat and St Peter’s Basilica

Unexpectedly, three more chapter were written to conclude Sacred Geometry in Ancient Goddess Cultures, on Cambodian temple Angkor Wat and Rome’s St Peter’s Basilica.

Here is a taster of the later chapters.

figure: the punctuation of towers and western outlook. Possibly a funerial building for the king, it could be used as a living observatory and complex counting platform for studying the time periods of the sun, the moon, and even the planetary synods.

Chapter 9 is on the design of Angkor Wat and chapter 10 is on St Peter’s basilica in Rome (see below). Some early articles on these can be accessed on this site, most easily through the search function, tag cloud and tags on this post..

As you can see, my books partly emerge through work presented on this website. This has been an important way of working. And whilst I am providing some ways of working that could be duplicated by others, at its heart, my purpose is to show that the celestial environment of our living planet appears to have been perfectly organized according to a numerical scheme.

My results do not rely on modern techniques yet I have had to avail myself of modern techniques and gadgets to work out what the ancient techniques arrived at over hundreds if not thousands of years.

My basic proposal is that ancient astronomers learned of the pattern of time in the sky by counting days and months between events on the horizon or amongst the fixed stars. Triangles enabled the planetary motions to be compared as ratios between synodic periods.

The new book has been hard to research and write, but is a fitting sequel to Sacred Geometry: Language of the Angels, pushing further back in time to question why there were numerate traditions prior to the ancient near east. Gobekli Tepe is an example, built following the end of the last ice age and long before middle Eastern civilizations. It is only when concrete numbers are visible within the design of a site that our lack of historical evidence can be mitigated by the invariance of how numbers themselves interact.

My new book can be pre-ordered from the publisher and other retailers. Google it
