The Martian Moon Resonance

As with the other “outer” planets, Mars has a resonant relationship with the Lunar Year.

When I wrote Matrix of Creation in 2001, many planetary resonances were revealed and most of these involved small whole-number relationships between both sidereal and synodic periods in the solar system. At that time, only the Jupiter and Saturn synods (of the two visible outer planets) had been identified, as 9/8 and 16/15 of the lunar year (see chapter 9). The implied units of these ratios were 1.5 and 0.8 lunar months (respectively).

Mars is closer to the Earth and Moon than these giant planets and, since all the giants have numerical ratios to the lunar year, what of Mars whose synodic period is effectively 780 days: This is over 2 solar years (2.14) and 2.2 lunar years, a fractional relationship of 11/5 lunar years. That the moon has such a simple fractional relationship with all of the outer planets implies a previously unknown (at least in recent times) principle, in which the moon is gravitationally affected by the “loops of proximity”, seen when such planets approach, at a frequency defined by their synodic period. In the case of Mars this is very long, proximity happening every 780 days.

Metrology of a Bronze Age Dodecahedron

The Norton Disney Archaeology Group found an example of a “Gallo Roman Dodecahedron”. One of archaeology’s great enigmas,
there are now about 33 known examples in what was Roman occupied Britain.

An Interpretation of its Height

The opposed flat pentagons of a regular duodecagon gives us its height, in this case measured to be 70 mm. Dividing 0.070 meters by 0.3048 gives 0.22965 feet and, times 4, gives a possible type of foot as 0.91864 or 11/12 feet**.

** Where possible, one should seek the rational fraction of the foot, here 11/12, over the decimal measurement which assumed base-10 arithmetic and loses the integer factors at work within the system of ancient foot-based metrology.

The Simplest Likelihood

Reviews: New Dawn and Midwest Book Review

The May-June edition of New Dawn has this review from Alan Glassman of Sacred Geometry in Ancient Goddess Cultures.

Midwest Book Review

Below is a Midwest Book Review for  Sacred Geometry in Ancient Goddess Cultures

Critique: This large format (8 x 0.8 x 10 inches, 2.16 pounds) hardcover edition of “Sacred Geometry in Ancient Goddess Cultures: The Divine Science of the Female Priesthood” from Inner Traditions beautifully and profusely illustrated throughout and of immense value to readers with an interest in the sciences of antiquity in general, and the metaphysical history of numbers/mathematics in particular. While a unique and invaluable pick for personal, professional, community, and college/university library collections, it should be noted for historians, as well as metaphysical students and practitioners that the book is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $31.99).

Design of the Taj Mahal: its Façade

The Taj Mahal is one of the most recognizable buildings on earth. It was built by a Moghul king as a memorial for his dead queen and for love itself. The Mughals became famous for their architecture and the Persian notion of the sacred garden though their roots were in Central Asia just north of Persia.

I had been working on Angkor Wat, for my soon to be released book: Sacred Geometry in Ancient Goddess Cultures, where the dominant form of its three inner boundary walls (surrounding the inner sanctum) were in the rectangular ratio of outer walls of six to five. A little later I came across a BBC program about the Mughals and construction of the Taj by a late Moghul ruler, indicating how this style almost certainly arose due the Central Asian influences and amongst these the Samanids and the Kwajaghan (meaning “Masters of Wisdom”). I had also been working on the facades of two major Gothic Cathedrals (see post), and when the dimensions of the façade of the Taj Mahal was established, it too had dimensions six to five. An online pdf document decoding the Taj Mahal, established the likely unit of measure as the Gaz of 8/3 feet (a step of 2.5 feet of 16/15 English feet; the Persepolitan root foot *(see below: John Neal. 2017. 81-82 ). Here, the façade is 84 by 70 gaz.

The Moon is Key to our Survival

With the advent of many orbital missions, the Moon is threatened with orbital and other changes due to space travel.

The modern theory of relativity has joined the worlds of space and time, now called spacetime. As beings we live in space while moving through time, and both these are assumed to be neutral dimensions having mere extension. However, spacetime is distorted by the massive gravitational objects found in solar systems, these exerting an attractive force on all objects including ourselves. As humans, we are therefore locked onto the surface of the earth by gravity, viewing a solar system of eight orbiting planets seen in the sky from the surface of the third planet from the sun. The earth has an unusually large moon which has fallen into resonance with the planets, a resonance then belonging to time.

The Moon was formed 4 to 5 billion years ago and this affected the Earth’s geology, stabilized its tilt (giving stability to the seasons) and providing tidal reaches on coasts. But apart from such direct physical changes to the earth, the moon has now developed resonances with the solar system, especially its outer giant planets, and this has given time on earth a highly specific resonant environment, based upon the lunar month and year of 12 lunar months. This resonant network appears to be numerical when counting days, months and years, in between significant events in the sky.

The structure of time is numerical because of these resonances between the moon, the sun and the planets. This resonance came to be known by previous civilizations and was thought meaningful in explaining how the world was created. Time was deemed spiritual because its organisation allowed human beings to understand the purpose of life and of the earth through the structure of time. In particular, the moon was a key to unlocking the time world as a link to a higher or spiritual world, a literal sky heaven organised according to numbers.
