Secrets In Plain Sight: An Interview with Scott Onstott


Scott Onstott is an unexpected alchemist.  A soft spoken architect and autocad teacher by trade, Onstott has found himself called to continue in the footsteps of modern alternative historians such as Graham Hancock & Robert Bauval, in pursuit of a greater Mystery, encoded in myth and mystical architecture, hidden in plain sight throughout the ages.  The revelations provided are truly biblical in their ‘proportions’ and denote a hidden history and lost science which informs the very foundations of our modern world.

SGI:  You are best known for your documentary film, “Secrets in Plain Sight” which demonstrates the deliberate encoding of occulted numerology and symbology in the design of city grids, government institutions, corporate headquarters and temple structures throughout the planet.  For those unfamiliar with your work, please describe the purpose behind the film.

Secrets In Plain Sight is a series of films about art, architecture, and cities specifically designed to embody ancient wisdom. This wisdom relates to core truths about the structure of reality that most people remain completely unconscious of and yet is conspicuously encoded all around us for those who have the eyes to see it.

Keys to this liberating wisdom include esoteric astronomical principles, musical ratios, sacred geometry, and number theory. After examining monuments in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Winnipeg, Washington DC, New York, London, Paris, Rome, Baalbek, Babylon, Jerusalem, Cairo, and many other places, the trail consistently leads back to an advanced civilization in the remote past that we still have much to learn from today.

The purpose of Secrets In Plain Sight is to raise awareness in those who are seeking knowledge about hidden dimensions and about the nature of reality itself. Woven into this epic tapestry are threads of secret societies, modern conspiracies, synchronicity, gods, and consciousness.

SGI:  What inspired your delving so deeply into these arcane and fortean realms and what do you hope to accomplish by presenting these concepts to the world?

My background in training architects and engineers on design and visualization software helped me on the technical side and informs my personal teaching style. Drawing crop circles (I published a crop circle coloring book in 2005) opened my mind to the mysteries and to sacred geometry. Lots of non-fiction reading and intuitive guidance led me to becoming a writer and video producer.

In presenting these concepts I hope to help expose a secret obsession shared by kings, popes, and presidents; Templars, Freemasons, and founding fathers; renaissance masters, modern architects and NASA and uncover a body of knowledge cleverly hidden in plain sight in the design of important buildings, famous works of art, in long distance alignments between sacred sites, and in the streets and public spaces of many of the world’s great cities. This powerful knowledge has the potential to change the way you view the world.

SGI:  What is your opinion of the most recent 2012 Olympic opening ceremony?

Well there really is a lot encoded. There was far more going on than simply “entertainment”. “Entrainment” is a better word describing what was going on. We have the ability to become conscious of what is flowing in this olympic stream if we so choose. Casting history in Blake’s “green and pleasant land” as a progression from the Enlightenment through the Industrial Revolution on up to the present day as a glorious effort to rebuild Jerusalem is incredible.
The spectacular finale symbolized Ezekiel’s 5 wheeled chariot of fire as it poured out sparks and smoke uniting the 5 flying olympic rings.

The tree of life planted atop the world mountain in the center of a stadium whose measurements of 315m x 256m describe an implied rectangle having an area of 80640 sq m which resonates with the sun’s 864000 mile diameter, and the 86400 seconds in a day (along with precessional numbers). This was noted by my friend and fellow researcher Jan Thulstrup.

I noticed that Nelson’s column in Trafalgar Square (which shares a Google Earth Wikipedia placemark with the country of England itself in the heart of the City of London) is 333333 inches from the center of the Olympic Stadium at a heading of 66 degrees. The placement of the stadium is perfect. The City of London is itself surrounded by the 32 boroughs of greater London.

Mark Gray counted 32 ley-like lines on the olympic gold medal and Bob Tarmac counted 33 facets on the medal’s letters which spell either 2012 or ZION, you decide. 32 and 33 are highly charged numbers that I talk a lot about in my work.

During the bizarre sequence where the giant dark magician holding a wand is chased away from the sea of sick and frightened children I found it incredible that the announcer stated there were 32 Mary Poppins descending on umbrellas. Saved by Disney. The announcer also stated there were 320 volunteers from the NHS on stage. It is significant when our attention is officially directed to specific numbers. Nothing was an accident in the well planned olympic mega-ritual.

Then the sequence shifted to encoded children’s literature with J.K. Rowling reading a few lines to television images projected through sympathetic magic on a typical London home, to performers enacting the evolution of rock music in hexagonal and pentagonal groupings, and in the end the Wizard of Oz was revealed under the home to be none other than Sir Tim Berners Lee, he who invented the world wide web at CERN some 22 years ago, working on a computer.

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain” -said by the Wizard of Oz himself

The structure that has become part of our collective unconscious. The letter w is equivalent to the Hebrew letter waw which has a gematria value of 6. Your superconscious mind decodes the URL to, or the domain under 666. Interestingly waw also is equivalent to y-grec, the Greek letter Y which diagrammatically represents the choice one makes between evil and good, working for oneself or for others; it’s a symbolic fork in the road.

Are children’s stories, rock music, television, and the internet chosen as examples of the various mind-control methods or at the same time do these mediums have the capacity to inspire, envigorate, educate, and connect us all in liberating ways?

To me choice is the essence of what the olympic opening ceremony is about. We are at a collective fork in the road. We can choose to dwell on the machinations of the new world order elite or put our attention instead on the positive aspects of the olympics which are after all a coming together of the world’s finest in a series of physical competitions which mirror the non-physical struggle of good and evil under the thin veneer of consciousness.

Mark Gray and Hillary Raimo see the olympic megaritual as a great conception fueled with the energy of billions of people, ultimately forming “a new human and a new world.” We so desperately need to envision a positive future at this critical juncture with now more than 7 billion humans sharing the Earth.

If you are just now becoming aware of the negative global conspiracy, there is a tendency to become shocked, angry, and depressed which seems unavoidable for a time. However dwelling on negative issues lowers your vibration and thus funds the wrong side in the very real war on consciousness. I recommend waking up to all the hidden truths under the surface of the show which are both black and white, but choose wisely how you entrain your attention in the stream. As David Icke says so well, “energy flows where attention goes.”

The Olympic megaritual therefore becomes a window to expand or diminish consciousness. What will you do with this important opportunity?

    Onstott is a pretty smart dude. I recently heard him on Inside the Eye, with Dennis Fetcho. 

  2. Warren Ellis calls the Olympics a giant Summoning. I wonder what the Olympics were really about. it was certainly strange . More so than just trying to out weird the senses

    •  The ever-present possibility exists that I’m just totally batshit, but I
      saw something fucking awful in the fireworks of the opening
      ceremony…. fucking awful. I’m reasonably sure that I’ve attended a successful summoning before even though I was a bystander, and I’ve got an odious feeling in my gut that says we shouldn’t entirely dismiss it as plausable.

        Which demon do you think was summoned? Moloch is one of my favourites at the moment.

        • No idea, my participation was by accident more or less. No expert on demonology. Looked up Moloch….. not the sort I’d probably invite for tea.

            He’s probably just looking out for his own, you gotta admire his tenacity.

          • I had to ponder that last thing you said for a couple of days – then I read a lovely story written by a Luciferian and now it all makes infinitely more sense XD

  3. Introduction to Secrets in Plain Sight Miniseries

    it’s clear that mathematical & geographical symbols
    have been repeatedly choose by their architects
    whether this is a conscious or unconscious process is the question

    This guy is mental. And so are the rest of you that give weight to any of this nonsense. You can find this crap in anything if you are tryign to find it.
