As I showed in my previous post on Cymatics, the ancient Egyptians clearly had incredibly advanced knowledge of nature, science, magnetism, and astronomy (among many other things).
I recommend reading that post first if you haven’t already before reading further here, as I’m picking off where I left off to connect some more dots with regards to ancient knowledge.
This post might feel like something of a history lesson, but I’m laying some really important groundwork here so rest assured that the purpose behind all of this information will become clear once I start to pull things together in my next couple of posts. 🙂
For now, let’s go back to the Giza Pyramids…
Pyramids and Megaliths (continued)
To reiterate some of the key points about the Giza pyramids mentioned previously,
- The ancient Egyptians lifted and cut millions of huge stone blocks (from miles away no less) in a way no modern machinery can. Ed Liedkalnin’s Coral Castle gives clues as to how they achieved those feats using magnetic resonators.
- Phi and pi are encoded in the pyramids in a way so precise that no “modern” architecture can match.
- The latitude of the Giza pyramid exactly matches the digits in the speed of light.
- The pyramid complex perfectly aligns with Orion’s belt. The stars of Orion were associated with Osiris, the god of rebirth and afterlife.
- The resonant frequency of the four chambers of the pyramids matches that of DNA.
Another fun fact (as if those 5 facts aren’t enough on their own…) is that the Great Pyramid’s four faces are aligned to within two seconds of a degree (with 60 seconds in a minute of a degree, and 60 minutes in a degree) off of a 90-degree angle with the four cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West. The chambers in the pyramids are also aligned north-south with an accuracy of up to 0.05 degrees.
Another incredible feat of the Giza pyramid is that its internal shafts line up perfectly with certain constellations: Orion (Osiris); Seth, Isis, Kochab, and Thuban/Alpha Draconis (the significance of these will become significant later on in this post and my next post):
Remarkably, the Giza pyramids aren’t the only megaliths around the world that used heavy stone blocks (that modern machinery can’t lift) and exhibit precise phi- and pi-based geometries.
For example, the Pyramid of the Sun (“Temple of the Feathered Serpent”) at Teotihuacan in Mexico (pictured below) also encodes advanced maths. Teotihuacan was once home of one of the largest populations on Earth with ca.150,000 people, and the temple was used for sacrifices to deities.
Geometric calculations show that the Pyramid of the Sun is built with minimal deviation from phi and pi, just like the Great Pyramid at Giza. Standing at exactly half the height of the Giza pyramid, the area of it’s base only differs by about 3% (a difference which could partly be down to erosion over time).
Below is a comparative geometric analysis of the heights and bases of the Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan. For a more thorough study read this.
The rectangles generated from the height of each pyramid and its ½ base, when the ½ base is considered to be 1:
|Great Pyramid:||Pyramid of the Sun|
|1.2738853… : 1 (deviates by 0.15 % from the 1.2720196 value for the square root of phi)||.6369339… : 1 (deviates by 3.06 % from the 0.618034 value for the reciprocal of phi)|
The ratio of the base perimeter to the height:
|Great Pyramid||Pyramid of the Sun|
|6.2800001… : 1 (deviates by 0.05 % from the 6.2831853 value for 2 x pi)||12.560171… : 1 (deviates by 0.05 % from the 12.566371 value for 4 x pi)|
The ratios of the bases to one another:
|Great Pyramid/Pyramid of the Sun||1.0308101… : 1|
|Pyramid of the Sun/Great Pyramid||0.9701107… : 1|
What’s more, just like the Giza pyramids, the three pyramids at Teotihuacan are also perfectly aligned to Orion’s Belt (i.e. Osiris):
In fact, so is the pyramid complex in Xi’an, China…
… And newly discovered pyramids in Montevecchia (40km from Milan) also have a similar alignment too. Furthermore, according to this article the inclination degree of these Italian pyramids is apparently 42° 43′, which is the same as the ‘Bent‘ and ‘Red‘ pyramids at Dashur.
If the fact that those pyramids (and many more…) are all aligned to Orion wasn’t enough of an indication that the ancients all over the world knew their astrology, the Teotihuacan complex also perfectly maps the procession of planets within the solar system, as shown below.
It’s quite incredible that this ancient culture was able to build a precise scale model of the solar system, and as shown below the ancient Egyptians had knowledge of the zodiac and precession too, and it’s well known that the Chinese ancients were incredibly advanced in their astronomy as well (I won’t attempt to explain their zodiac wheels here to keep this short):
Clearly, very ancient people in many different traditions gave special importance to precessional numbers, and based their practices and monuments on constellations and precession.
This is very advanced knowledge, much more advanced knowledge than we at one time thought any ancient people had. Precession was only discovered by modern astronomers relatively recently, as were Uranus (1787), Neptune (1846) and Pluto (1930), so the discovery of precessions and movements of planets was known thousands of years ago is remarkable (and it does make you think what else the ancients knew that still hasn’t been “discovered” by mainstream science today…).
Another example of an ancient culture who based their architecture around astronomy and ancient knowledge is found at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, pictured here:
The Angkor Wat complex perfectly encompasses both the Perseus (left) and Draco (right) constellations:
The Draco constellation in particular is associated with the dragon, or serpent, and includes the star Alpha Draconis, which was the star closest to Polaris from 4BC to 2BC. The traditional name of Alpha Draconis, Thuban, means “head of the serpent”. Note that this is also one of the constellations that one of the shafts of the Great Pyramid is aligned to.
It’s also worth noting that the dragon or serpent was (and still is) a key symbol in many other societies too as exemplified by some flags below (left to right: Bhutan, Wales, Qing Dynasty China, and Ljubljana).
Furthermore, in England and Northern Europe, Saint George is also a prominent historical figure who is associated with dragons, hence why the St. George’s cross is prevalent on all Northern European flags. There are for example also numerous statues of St. George slaying a dragon in Stockholm, which is said to be symbolic of man overcoming evil…
The serpent/dragon was also prominent in many other temples around the world, ranging from the Mother Temple of Besakih in Bali, Indonesia (left) to The Serpent Stairwell, Chichen, Mexico (right):
Notice that the Temple of Besakih (Indonesia) and the Mayan Ossuary (also at Chichen Itza, Mexico) curiously show very similar architecture in other ways too, as shown below.
The huge step pyramid (the pyramid of Kukulcan, on the right) has 91 steps on each of its sides, which add up to 364 steps. Including the platform on top, there are 365 steps in total — the number of days in a year. Also, on the vernal and autumnal equinoxes (the first day of spring and fall, when day and night are the same length of time), the sunlight works to create a shadow of a giant serpent on the staircase that faces north… Clearly they were pretty talented astronomers to build such a precise structure!
Temple’s in Cambodia (left) and Guatemala (right) also share some distinctive features:
It should be abundantly clear by now that astronomy was of central importance to all these cultures, and that:
- they built their temples using the same phi- and pi-oriented maths;
- their structures were very similar aesthetically;
- many of them are perfectly aligned to the same star constellations: either Orion (which is associated to Osiris) or Draco (which is associated to serpents);
- the serpent was of high importance and worshiped all over the world, from the Temple of the Serpent in Mexico, to the shafts at the Giza Pyramid and the complex at Angkor Wat being aligned to the Draco constellation, among countless others.
Now what are the odds of them sharing all these traits if they weren’t somehow connected?
Quite small I say…
Still not convinced that there’s a connection between many ancient civilizations? Let’s move on to the main point I wanted to make here then…
What do the following historical sites all have in common (all pictured below)?
Giza Pyramids (Egypt), Siwa (Egypt), Tassili n’Ajjer (Algeria), Paratoari (Peru), Ollantaytambo (Peru), Machu Picchu (Peru), Nazca lines (Peru), Easter Island (Pacific Ocean), Aneityum Island (Vanuatu), Preah Vihear (Cambodia), Sukhothai (Thailand), Pyay (Myanmar), Khajuraho (India), Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan), Persepolis (Iran), Ur (Iraq), Petra (Jordan), Marajó Island (Brazil) and Angkor Wat (Cambodia).
Before scrolling down for the answer, keep in mind what you learned above: The ancients were wise people, who didn’t build things for no reason or without logic (as the examples of advanced maths and astronomy have shown!)…
All these ancient sites are all aligned to each other geographically:
As explained here, the azimunthal projection is centered at Mount Denali (where Obama curiously visited and changed the name from Mount McKinley just last summer… Coincidence? hmm…)
Distances to any point from the center of an equal azimuthal projection are equally scaled. Since all of the sites on the great circle alignment shown above are equidistant from the axis point at Denali at one quarter of the given circumference of the earth, the alignment forms a perfect circle halfway between the center and the outer edge of the projection.
To give you an idea of how precisely these sites match the line:
- Within 1/10th of 1 degree of latitude of the line: Giza Pyramid, Machu Picchu, Nazca lines, and Easter Island, Persepolis (the capital city of ancient Persia), Mohenjo Daro (the ancient capital city of the Indus Valley), and the lost city of Petra in Jordan.
- Within 1 degree of latitude of the line: the ancient Sumerian city or Ur, and the temples at Angkor Wat.
Angkor Wat/Machu Picchu and Mohenjo Daro/Easter Island are also directly opposite to each other:
Take a moment to consider just how small the chance of this happening is. Do feel free to play around with Google Earth yourself, and you’ll see how big a difference a change of just one or two degrees can have on an alignment over large distances!
Clearly, the many synchronicity’s and mathematical parallels between these ancient ruins demonstrate that the people who constructed them had not only a special regard for celestial bodies and mathematics, but also incredible accuracy.
From Egypt to Mexico, there is absolutely no doubt that past civilizations were involved in very complex maths, astronomical calculations, and architectural achievements.
Although many historians and archaeologists debate exactly what these civilizations did intentionally and what they did by mere chance, it’s beyond reason that the most important ancient sites in the world would share common designs; idols; and both astronomical and geographical alignments, simply by chance.
So why does this matter to us today? This will start to become clear in my next post, stay tuned!
