The Code of the Ancients
In her article on archaeocryptography (Atlantis Rising #9), Laura Lee mentions a comment from radio land (page 59) from one who apparently dwells in the formidable religion of coincidence where the light isn't very bright. If one looks for mathematical coincidences, they're not hard to find.
She then cites an example from James Randi's book Flim Flam wherein he jacks the measurements of the Washington Monument around to show the "3,300" weight of its capstone. But, 3,300 what? Pounds, tons, kilos?
These deductions belong in the realm of flim flam because the numbers Randi uses are in error. The Washington Monument is 555 feet, 5-1/8 inches high. Its base width is 55 feet, 1-1/8 inches, not just 55 feet, and the weight of its capstone is 300 tons (600,000 lbs.), not "3,300," unless he's using his own metrological system.
Meaningless coincidence is just that: nothing. Grabbing numbers from thin air and working them into anything from Abe Lincoln's shoe size to the date the Lord returns has been going on for ages, and I'm sure the numbers involved do exist. But what are they? Where are they?
In archaeocryptography one works only with demonstrated numbers. No idle number-grabbing allowed. If you can't see it, don't use it. Laura Lee made that painfully obvious in her article. The four staircases, four corners, 365 steps and nine terraces on the Kukulkan Pyramid should be sufficient for any clearheaded soul to understand by simply digesting them. They are the most obvious message from this monument, and when multiplied to the number (52,560) which likewise encodes the actual numbers in its geographical longitude to the west of the Great Pyramid at Giza (119° : 42' = 10.51620648"), it should be obvious to any but completely brain-dead skeptics that Kukulkan's design and position upon the earth was more than the whim of some ancient pot-smoking architect. The monument contains a clear and recognizable communication.
In this awareness, I would like to point out, for the benefit of skeptics, that the Kukulkan was not alone in conveying this message toward the fine art of global positioning in remote antiquity.Stonehenge (Phase III) England
Not all of its great rocks still stand today, but they did leave impressions in the ground. Thirty of them. Then, spanning these 30 rocks (called Sarsens) were 30 lintels, laid horizontally from one Sarsen to another. Grand rock total: 60.
The perimeter formed by this display shows a true 360-degree circle. The question here is whether the builders realized that circles comprised 360 degrees of arc. We know they do, but did the ancients who built Stonehenge back around 8,000 B.C. (see English Heritage, 6-1996)? I have run my own surveys of the public on this point and have yet to find anyone who can agree with it. The very idea is illogical to them because, as we all have been told, there was no writing that far back in time, hence, no human intelligence and, for sure, no skills with mathematical law. Sixty stones arranged in a circle was entirely arbitrary and a circle was just a round thing. People of that period were too ignorant for thinking. Sixty was more fingers and toes than anyone had, and degrees of arc? Beyond human comprehension. Ask any archaeologist anywhere.
But, when anyone multiplies those 60 rocks by the 360-degree circle they present to the eye, the product always comes back as 21,600. Fifty-one degrees, ten minutes and 42.3529411764 seconds of latitude north of the equator, when multiplied (51° x 10' x 42.3529411764"), also products at 21,600, and since that is precisely where Stonehenge situates on our best modern maps (British Pathfinder series), it is abundantly clear that the builders were aware that circles comprised 360 degrees of arc.
Stonehenge explains why it is where it is and is every bit as self-decoding as is the Kukulkan Pyramid in Atlantis Rising #9. That's two down and several thousand to go.
Cuicuilco Pyramid, Mexico City
Of all the marvelous pyramids in Mexico, only one has been found which was built with a truly circular base. Why? Did the primitive Mexicans also know that circles had 360 degrees of arc or was this strictly a Celtic privilege?
Cuicuilco is even easier than Stonehenge. No stones to count. All we need is a map and an ounce of common sense to reason out why the Cuicuilco Pyramid was built where it is: 360° form : 19° : 18' = 01.05263157894" North. Its actual latitude multiplies to its 360-degree form, hence, the aboriginal Mexicans knew the law behind mathematical and geodetic-expression just as well as the Celts, no, Pre-Celts, did.
Writing seeds human intelligence? If that's our only ruler for it then we're thinking in low gear in high places. Math, as we see herein, is also quite capable of expressing intelligence, and they didn't even have to write it down for us. Just give it three-dimensional form and leave it out in plain sight for everyone to see. The best place in the world to leave a simply coded message for future generations to find, and shame on all of us for not seeing it for what it is over the past 12,000 years.
But wait, some are likely thinking, Cuicuilco is dated at only 2,000 years by archaeology. Beware. In his lengthy article on his excavations of Cuicuilco (See the August 1923 National Geographic), Dr. Byron Cummings, University of Arizona, estimated its date at some 8,000 years. The problem is, we cannot have organized structures here in the West which antedate any of those in the ancient East. It's that Cradle of civilization syndrome don't you know. The religions would go ballistic.
Even worse, we have H.S. Bellamy's dating of Bolivia's Tiahuanaco at some 28,000 years (today, only 2,000), the oldest of all pyramid sites on the planet, and what of Mexico's Xochicalco? Its Temple of the Plumed Serpent shows relief art that is unlike anything we have ever found anywhere. Pre-Toltec, pre-Olmec and pre-Maya. Probably even pre-Mexican. Then too, we have Peru's Marcahuasi site, a place which so defies analysis that archaeology prefers to avoid it. If this trusted science was ever to come clean, we would have to move the cradle to the West.The Pyramid of the Magicians, Uxmal, Mexico
Built by a magician in a single night, according to legend, it is the only square-sided, round-cornered pyramid ever built by the Mayans (again, no older than 2,000 years).
It was found in pretty bad shape. Its steps and outer veneer slumping very badly, it is being rebuilt. To whose standards? I haven't yet found out, but I don't trust it. So, forget the superstructure and focus on its unusual base plan which, by itself, should attract our thoughts.
For they who like to play it looks like, we might hear that the plan suggests a hockey ring, and that would be correct. But to the ancients, its message is entirely mathematical. It is the merger of two common geometrical forms, the circle and the square, their way of saying square the circle.
What happens when we square the 360-degree circle?
360 squared = 129,600 (: 120° : 54' = 20.000" )
Which is where it is to the west of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
Now we have evidence that the circle was known to have 360 degrees of arc in pre-Hispanic Mexico twice, this time by the Maya. Apparently everyone knew it.
Nazca Lines, Peru, W. South America
We continue with Nazca, that lifeless plain in Peru which Eric von Daniken brought to the attention of the world some 30-odd years ago and boldly announced that it was an airport for spaceships. Academia has been laughing at him ever since. Such arrogance has no place in the search for truth or facts. So, let's set the record straight. One of the drawings at Nazca is... called Manos and he was drawn immediately south of the Arbal and just west of the Pan American Highway. It's the vague image of a man looking skyward with his head tilted back and his hands stretched out, to the gods, of course. And, of course, it's only about 2,000 years old.
Is the image praying? Not at all. This airport attendant is simply providing the overhead observer with his grid coordinates, for example, his exact latitude south of the equator. Can you figure it out, now that you know how? Remember the routine?
Find any true geometries (360° circles, 180° half-circles or 90° right angles. Then pick out the obvious numbers shown.
As the drawing shows, there is one geometric: a single 90-degree angle where the neck meets the shoulder. Our first number then is 90.
Then we have the hands, one showing five fingers and the other only four. Why only four fingers? I have read some really far-out interpretations on this, up to and including aliens. But Nazca's drawings require no interpretations. Just decoding, hence, our next two numbers: four and five.
Notice that these two numbers are separated showing four and five. In all then, nine fingers are shown. Our final number for our first formula, 9.
90 x 5 x 4 x 9 = 16,200 (: 14° : 41' = 28.222" South)
So much for Manos' latitude. As for the other two numbers (two ears and two arms)...(four), these take us to its West Giza Longitude thusly: 90 x 5 x 4 x 4 x 9 = 64,800 ( : 106° : 14' = 43.665768194")
An alien airfield (von Daniken), or pathways the local Indians walk in order to avoid contact with evil spirits (Tony Morrison and Gerald Hawkins)?
Not anymore. Nazca is a decoding device, a sort of Rosetta Stone, which can be used to explain the global pyramid grid system. It is writing. Their writing, and it can be read.
The Bent Pyramid, Dahshur, Egypt
When discussing pyramids, we should not overlook Egypt where, at Dahshur, the so-called Bent Pyramid was built.
The Bent Pyramid of Seneferu, Dahshur. Egyptology tells us that this monument began as a true pyramid. But when construction reached the half-way point, engineers began to worry that all the weight involved would buckle the structure and cause its collapse, as they suppose collapsed the False Pyramid at Meidum. But, their theory is wrong. Its design, and the maps, can prove it.
First, and most obvious, is the pyramid's square ground plan which emphasizes the 90-degree right angle. 90° x 4 corners = 360°
Next, count the monument's extremities. There are nine.
Finally, rather than the four sides common to a true pyramid, the Bent Pyramid shows us eight. Four below and four more above, eight.
Mathematically speaking, that's all it shows. No terraces, no staircases, nothing has been omitted. So, multiply: 360° x 9 x 8 = 25,920 (: 29°: 47' = 19.016" North Latitude).
Again, why it is where it is?
As for extracting its longitude, apply your geometric senses. The suggestion of two main bodies is immediate. Factor this two into the above formula and run it in reverse: 25,920 : 2 : 8 : 9 = 180 (: 00° : 04 = 45.00000")
Our own modern maps verify it: The Bent Pyramid was positioned exactly 00-degrees, 04 minutes and 45.00000 seconds to the east of Giza's Great Pyramid.
The Bent Pyramid then was bent before its first foundation stones were set in place, and a fear of collapse was never an engineering consideration. For us to have even injected the attribute of fear into the engineering of this pyramid was poorly reasoned. With its lower slope angle of 54-1/2° and the upper at just over 43°, and built of squared blocks as it was, it was sound. After all, over here in the West, the Mayans built their pyramids with slope angles in excess of 70 degrees, with nothing more than field stone and cement, and they never collapsed. Shame on those who think so negatively.
Finally, as to who these ancient masters were, archaeocryptography has no answers as yet. But it does know their language. It was one which required no writing as we know it, speaking distinctly by way of geometric form, maps, and the oldest language in the universe: mathematical law.
To call these people semi-savage or ignorant simply because they left us no A-B-C writing forms smacks of poor observational skills on our part. They were clearly brighter than we are, and better informed because they left it all hanging out for us, in plain sight, and we couldn't see it for what it is. Too many centuries, I suppose, of dismissing the obvious and the logical to the pitiful realm of coincidence where the intellectually lazy or inept tend to dwell.
Atlanteans? Lemurians? Hyperboreans? Martians? Don't assert it until we can prove it, and forget looking for these architects in the written records. They had clearly transcended the need for writing, which, as common sense shows, is both slow and cumbersome, the realm of the truly primitive.
The pyramids are ours once again and the evidence is in; we have been preceded by genius.
