Sacred numbers arose from ancient man’s observation of the heavens, and represent the secrets of cosmic proportion and alignment. The ancients understood that the ripeness of the natural world is the perfection of ratio and that the planetary system–and time itself–is a creation of number. We have forgotten what our ancestors once knew: that numbers and their properties create the forms of the world.

Plan from Megalithic Remains in Britain and Brittany, Oxford U.P. Central portion is fig.3, upside down to match the horseshoe of trilithons.. … Continue reading “The Stonehenge trilithons as synods of Venus”
- 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”
- 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”
- 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”
- Further Ratios of the Outer Planets to the Lunar YearThe traditional way to express the Harmony of the Spheres is geometrically, despite the fact that geometrical knowledge of the heliocentric planetary system was not available to Pythagoras who, for the West, first established this whole idea – that the planets were part of a system expressing harmony. The opening picture is from Kepler’s Harmonices … Continue reading “Further Ratios of the Outer Planets to the Lunar Year”
