1 the great pyramid, giza, egypt, and related themes

a

the immaterial (’superior’) pyramid – whose top is ’intact’, its bottom level being where the two inner passages meet – is the built pyramid’s spiritual counterpart and, thus, its most important reference as to symbolic and spiritual interpretations.

b
the secret (’universal’) cubit (uc) of about 51.487 cm, or about 9 mm shorter than the cubit-in-use (the royal cubit), is explained and confirmed as 1/216 of the ‘way to the middle’ – the horizontal distance from the superior pyramid’s outline to its centre. 216 is 6x6x6, thus mentioning 6 as the basic number of sacred measurement (1x2x3 = 1+2+3)
thus making the entire perimeter of the superior pyramid 1728 uc.
c
the angular unit of 1aa = 1/100 deg – explaining the average exterior gradient angle as 5184aa, which is three times the perimeter of the superior pyramid, 1728 (uc). 5184, being 72x72, thus mentions 72 as a key symbol concerning the great pyramid.
d
this fact is supported by the vertical dimension of the upper ascending passage (from the ‘plane of transition’ to the foot of the central threshold), which is 72 uc (see b).
the symbolical role of the figure 72 is stressed by both ascending passages, which had originally a gradient angle of 2628aa (= 26.28 deg). 2628 is the sum 1–72.
e
the immaterial ’capstone’ – being present in the superior pyramid but absent physically – is the great pyramid’s exposed One-symbol and thus, also, an explaining unit of measurement. the superior pyramid’s volume is 3456 capstone volumes. 3456 is two times 1728 (see b).
f
the ‘tree of modulation’: an articulator of numerical symbols, whose yin and yang halves – a branch system having 2 and 3 as base numbers - exposing the above key numbers of the great pyramid, thus explaining them as yin qualities.
g
the ’plus-one code models’ – explaining the role of the symbol ‘1’ in a series of sacred models (the week’s 6+1, the sitting human body’s 3+1, the 4+1 of pyramid geometry; the hebrew temples’ 2+1, the pi+1 of the ‘key of transition’ (see h), etc).
h
the ’key of transition’ – a geometric code figure explained by the circle only : by ‘bursting’ the circle creates a code of totality whose characteristic is ‘pi+1’; appearing as an explaining code in a great many different contexts (the great pyramid; the geometry of sacred places and their geographical interrelations; etc).
i
the hitherto undiscovered relationship of key levels in the landscape of Jesus’ landscape and the marked interior levels of the great pyramid … revealing connections of unique symbol-bearing qualities and, thus, raising new questions as to the nature and meaning of these striking phenomena.
j
also a full set of directions from the great pyramid to the key places of jesus’ ministry are mirrored with perfection in the pyramid’s own built-in angular markings – like the direction towards bethlehem (EN 2628aa), which was identified about the year 1900 as identical with the pyramid’s passages’ angle of ascent.

the above aspects are demonstrated in my books, EVIDENCE (1986) and THE PERISCOPE ONE : THE WAY TO THE MIDDLE (2004), and in my exhibitions, THE STONES SING (1989) and THE HOUSE OF MEMORY (2003).

2 global geometry and mercator map features

a
the fact that a great number of sacred sites are signified by expressive relationships to earth’s geometry, whose basic references are the polar axis and the equator.
b
the symbolical aspects of the ‘solar belt’ (= the tropical zone), whose connection with global geometry is mirrored in several key examples of sacred geometry (like the Exodus desert temple; the Ark of the Covenant; the section of the ascending hall in the great pyramid; the angular proportions of the pentagon, etc)
c
the strict and expressive geometries exposed by the mercator world map projection, showing that continents, continental relationships, symbolically related key places, political and religious patterns, sacred mountains and topical features, etc, often reveal striking series of expressive, explaining figures and numbers.

These phenomena are discussed in my exhibitions, UNFOLDING THE WORLD (2003) and THE MERCATOR PERSPECTIVES (2005) – and in my book THE PERISCOPE ONE : THE WAY TO THE MIDDLE (2004).

3 other topics

a
the hidden geometry of the human body – the size of the human head being its chief reference – and the descriptive aspects as to symbology and great pyramid and earth geometry.
b
the chakra ladder – about the axially positioned chakras; their interrelated numbers; the ladder’s continuation up to a manifestation of fulfilment not yet activated – the ‘superior crown’; the spiritual context of such a concept, and its precise confirmation in the great pyramid (the main pyramid geometry; the passages; the high (King’s) and top chambers).
c
the more than striking symbolical relationship between jesus and the great pyramid,
demonstrated in many different ways: geographically; via great pyramid code models; topographically (when comparing landscape and passage system levels); etc.
d
the great pyramid as a symbolical reference for the hebrew exodus, explained by related distances, angular relationships, sacred codes, etc.
e
the versatile roles of regular polygons (and polyhedrons) as explanatory symbols in sacred geography, sacred architecture, mercator map research, global models, etc. The direct relationships to the circle (or sphere) help identify frames of purpose and order.
f
the striking series of geometric and numerical models of jerusalem’s sacred geography, as exposed by the temple square geometry; the jerusalem key of transition; the jeshúan connections (cross site; tomb); the striking interconnection of levels and distances; etc.
g
studies of topics like stonehenge; sacred architecture; ‘crop circles’, etc – revealing a striking similarity in the symbol-bearing language of form and number … thus also inviting an interconnection of interpreting models.
