GDR: What is the study of Sacred Geometry and how does it affect the way we see our past, present and future?
CW: First we should define Sacred Geometry. Sacred denotes something of a divine or holy nature and geometry is the combination of geo, meaning earth, with metry, meaning to measure or measurement. In other words, Sacred Geometry is the measurement of nature divine. It appears from all angles, that life as we know it plays out according to mathematical templates (ratios and proportions) embedded within nature herself, or rather, that what we experience as nature, is comprised of interwoven wave forms of self assembling and disassembling materia. Materia whose alchemical operations and interactions reveal patterns (from the latin ‘pater’ or father) that repeat throughout all perceivable scales of existence, from the, “sub-microscopic to the super galactic” as my teacher Randall Carson has described it. This “hidden architecture of creation”, serves as the template or blueprint through which the universal language of mathematics manifests into form. The systemized process of measuring reality, discerning these patterns and utilizing them to establish a harmonious rapport between elements of any art, scientific, philosophical, magical or religious work is part of the study of Sacred Geometry.
As for how this realization modifies our perspective of time and history, I’d say it’s something akin to the key to the holy city. Cryptic utterances aside, Sacred Geometry is the most potent system for comprehending the great Mystery of life and the operating system upon which it runs. Therefore all that is, has been or could be, can be best understood through the modification to our perceptual lenses this knowledge provides.
GDR: Does the concept of sacred geometry lead one to believing that the universe is an ordered construct, lending evidence to the existence of a creator, or is there more than one way to view it?
CW: “A super-intelligence is the only good explanation of the origin of life and the complexity of nature’ – Anthony Flew
“Rather than accept that fantastically small probability of life having arisen through the blind forces of nature, it seemed better to suppose that the origin of life was a deliberate intellectual act. By “better” I mean less likely to be wrong.” – Sir Fred Hoyle
Both of the above quotes mirror completely my own perspective as I tumble down the rabbit hole that is the study of Sacred Geometry. Such a feat of engineering is not random and implies some incomprehensible cosmic intelligence has set in motion this whole as above so below alembic vitrium show. Regardless of your professed faith or belief system, life could not function without the supremely complex coordination of innumerable variables throughout all visible scales of resolution. For example, ponder the fact that the following numerical cipher shows up in so many different scales simultaneously throughout our galaxy. Our planet rotates on it’s axis relative to the Sun in exactly 86,400 seconds every solar day. The Sun’s diameter is 864,000 miles with an accuracy of 99.9%. The distance from our Sun to the brightest star in the sky Sirius is 8.64 light years and the distance from it to the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy is 864,000 parsecs. Thanks to Scott Onstott for providing such scintillating infographics and the inspiration behind this particular revelation.
GDR: Are instances of Sacred Geometry included in scripture proof of the ‘truth’ of the scripture in which it is contained?
CW: No, to believe so would be to commit the sin (missing the mark) of the fallacy of virtue or genetic fallacy, and falsely presume, that because scripture contains scientific truth within it, that it must follow then that the book in which it is contained is therefore sacrosanct-ified “truth” so to speak. I think this is yet another primary example of our need to revisit history with new eyes all together, especially concerning the astrotheological basis of the currently three dominant monotheistic religions. All of whose holy days of worship are devoted to certain celestial bodies. Whether or not the practitioners realize this is a different matter.
Case in point, here are a few rather curious examples of technically advanced scientific information being anachronistically encoded in scripture. Those familiar with apocalyptic judeo-christianity are likely also already familiar with the number of the beast 666. Yet most likely have never considered that within this allegory there is encoded highly evolved scientific information which unveils the meaning behind this oft maligned segment of the book of Revelation.
“Here is wisdom let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast, for it is a number of a man, six hundred three score and six.” – Revelation 13:18 KJV
How is it possible that this potent allegory could encode at least 4 scientific facts of a highly technical nature? Facts which if we adhere to the current paradigm of mainstream historical scholarship, could not have been understood by the author(s) at the time of its writing? Again don’t take my word for it, let’s begin the exegetical revelation of this encoded scripture. First of all our planet maintains an orbital velocity around the Sun (of God) which equals 66,615 (99.9%) miles per hour. Again, please don’t take my word for it, to verify this please head to your favorite search engine and type in Nasa, earth data fact sheet and access the following information located underneath the heading titled,“Orbital parameter”. You will find listed there that Earth’s mean orbital velocity equals 29.78 (km/s) Convert this into miles by multiplying by 0.621371 and the result is 18.5044 miles per second. Repeat this expansion by the same factor of 60 to receive another fascinating repetitive number sequence of 1,110.265 miles per minute. Convert this number into miles per hour by again multiplying by 60 and the result is 66,615.94 miles per hour (99.9%) Secondarily, we turn our attention from the Earth’s speed to the Moon’s size to discover the next correspondence. The Earth’s moon is 2,160 miles in diameter (99.9%). The cube of 6 or 6.6.6 equals 216. Utilizing Pythagorean addition, the zeros are understood as merely place holders denoting scale or orders of magnitude. The number essence or digital root of the figure is found in the numeric pattern preceding them. Thus ignoring the thousandth place holder which would give us 2,160 we here again we have a 666 correspondence appearing in this scripture as well as the physical geometry of our planet’s moon, commonly associated with the Virgin Mary or Isis and another divine portion of the holy trinity.
Keep in mind that the Moon rules the tides and that without it life on this planet most likely never would have evolved beyond a very simple stage of existence, if at all. The tides are the means by which primary marine life was swept into the intertidal zone which provided the impetus for amphibious life and later terrestrial life to evolve, or so the theory goes. Falling further into this magical scripture, yet another correspondence presents itself. The Moon is calibrated so that as it orbits us once a month (or Moonth), it operates much like a flywheel, stabilizing our planet’s rotation while holding our axial tilt at 23.4 ̊ relative to the plane of the ecliptic. The complementary angle produced by this alignment again yields the number of the man/beast 66.6 ̊ ( 90.0 ̊- 23.4 ̊ ) This angular relationship provides the procession (and precession) of the equinoxes and the solstices, which in turn give us the annual freezing and melting cycles of the polar ice caps. This process is critical for the yearly replenishment of the food chain via the infusion of purified and remineralized water which nourises the entire planetary ecosystem’s food chain. Finally, Carbon based life, which is a vital ingredient for all known naturally occurring life on this planet essential molecular nature is again characterized by 666. Carbon molecules are composed of 6 electrons, 6 protons and 6 neutrons. All organic life is carbon based. Carbon amazingly is a by product of the explosive death of stars billions of years previous to the creation of the earth.
For those raised in a fundamentalist interpretation of these scriptures please keep in mind that these revelations do not invalidate your faith in a higher being that loves you. Many of this mysterious architect or engineers Suns were literally sacrificed (transmuted) billions of years before our planet came into being, so that we might live. Unquestioningly there is so much more to the astrotheological Jesus narrative than previously understood. The beautiful irony here is that science is proving the existence of God/Higher Cosmic Intelligence and part of the hidden meaning encoded within St. John’s revelatory gnosis. For those subjected to a demonized and irrational view point of this segment of St. John’s apocalyptic vision I present the following advice:
“Can we be so naïve and superstitious as to ascribe evilness to a mere number? If you are scared of the number 666, or attribute it to the devil, you have simply mistaken what is being said about this number. St. John clearly informs us in Revelation that 666 is a number of wisdom and a number of man. If you fear this number, you are but fearing yourself and fearing wisdom. If there is anything beastly about this number at all, St. John is asking but one thing of you – overcome your fears.” – Claudia Pavonis
