“Black white & red…”
….bring to mind the three colors constantly evoked in the Pharonic symbolique.

Among the best-marked race-characters are the following:–
The colour of the skin has always been held as specially distinctive. The coloured race-portraits of ancient Egypt remain to prove the permanence of complexion during a lapse of a hundred generations, distinguishing coarsely but clearly the types of the red-brown Egyptian, the yellow-brown Canaanite, the comparatively fair Libyan, and the Negro.

WHITE RED BLACK
and the PALE YELLOW/GREEN RIDER?
For the Freemason connection showing how these 3 colors BLACK WHITE RED and YELLOW are in fact part of a rite and ritual when laying the cornerstone of a new temple linking the word OWS to COWS and suggesting we are being lead, go here:
In this heavily illustrated book, all in color, Michael Poynder proves that 5000 years ago the subtle energies that bind all living things were widely understood by an enlightened neolithic priesthood. Stone age man had an instinctive understanding of the magnetic currents that run through the Earth and bind all nature. He used dowsing and rock art to interpret and record this knowledge of metaphysics. The author’s radical decoding of these ancient Earth energies from 3000 BC and their integral connection to the enigmatic and mysterious legacy of that time, the I Ching, will have a profound effect on the way we view our ancestors. The I Ching is the written, spiritual language of the Stone Age. The 64 hexagrams allied to the 64 codons of the DNA allow us even now to access in a flash of opened consciousness the universality of ‘past’, ‘present’ and ‘future’, as time and space momentarily combine. Then we can ask the eternal question: What is God? and Who am I?
At the bottom of page 62 in the above link, in the last paragraph the colors:
RED BLACK WHITE
…are mentioned essentially in a discussion about which colors are associated with magnetic lines running through the earth.
Nature picked those colors for us.
The RED color is because of the IRON, the BLACK is from CARBON and the WHITE is due to the alkali content of CALCIUM.
And in addition to BLUE associated with ALUMINIUM these are the basic elements that contribute each in their own way to the magnetic connections that naturally occur on our planet.
Please read Chapter 4 starting on page 61 for a detailed explanation:

(click on above link to learn more about the ‘geometric LSD meme/archetype‘)
It has been a 7 year trip for ME and me as I have been gathering all of the ‘LSD MEme‘ evidence from long long ago that seems to get passed forward through SpaceTime, in addition to our ‘genetic’ information.
Because science has concluded that our visual system hones in on BLACK WHITE and RED first.
page 105 from the above book by Stan Gooch we find this quote:
Neanderthal botany-biology-psychology-philosophy (whose greatest flowering I think to be the I-Ching) was a considerable achievement.
It was not backed up by, nor set in, what we would call hard or objective technology. For whereas modern man builds cities of stone, it appears the Neanderthal was content to build cities of dreams.
What I mean is we have a nice series of ’coincidences’ that we can match up the work of Stan Gooch (The Dream Culture of the Neanderthals) and to the work of Michael Persinger and now also to the insights of Michael Poynder who is building on the work of many others like John Michell.
Is the swastika the in-yer-face interface that folks should meditate on?
In order to mediate with their shadow mediator called satan?
Is that why we should meditate?
To locate our shadow adversary mediator and learn how to play devil’s advocate as part of the learning process….is there something wrong with shadow boxing?
WHAT IF a symbol (i.e. the nano super-hero swastika that has been revealed by 21st century science in fact…) represents so much more than we realize or can see, its real true value and meaning has been obfuscated, twisted about, its truth veiled since pre-Christian times of course…
Continue reading this blog and you decide if the obvious has been hidden in plain view.
What are the connections/associations between ALL of the following, keeping in mind a thought, WHAT IF the world is unified in ways we have yet to DISCOVER or should I say RECOVER and apply to what we should know?
Science = pi = Religion
And on page 62 of Lost Science of the Stone Age we find the following two quotes:
“We noticed the sheep on Dartmoor always seemed to walk a narrow path across the moor, wiggling along their own little track head to tail like a line of blind soldiers.”
“After much experiment the line was established as having Serial 3 with its colors regularly appearing as red, black (blue) and white.
This was an exciting discovery as we remembered that in mystical lore …
red, black and white are always associated with magic and the moon”
AHA we find the image below on page 64.
All of the lines as drawn suggesting there exists a pi relationship when discussing magnetism, a relationship between circumference and diameter is clear in these images.
i.e. the STRAIGHT WHITE LINE that runs through the center in a relationship to either the RED LINES / BLACK/BLUE LINES on the circumference/CIRCLE … but note the RED CIRCLE has a larger circumference.
And who can’t see the swastika in the center?
Who can’t find humor in the fact that people/sheeple behave like sheep, err blind soldiers being lead along a magnetic BLACK/RED track, err and why not….?
wolf rolf ROFL
And it is not surprising that Itzhak Bentov arrived at a very similar ‘cosmic egg’ model.
“This desire resulted in the process of creation, symbolized by the swastika within the creative center, representing a four-dimensional rotating universe.
It is interesting to note that if you merge your consciousness with that of the Creator, you discover within Him a rotating swastika.
In other words, swastika stands for both the Creator and the Creation – they are inseparable”
go to 1:37
And I must say the pi relationship that we see in magnetism re: para and diamagnetic lines looks so much like a KEY loop too.
The treasure hunt continues…
What does this RED WHITE and BLUE KEY open?
Genius vs. Madness
Will Tesla’s notes (image below) be any help in solving this swirly twirly pi-in-the-sky magnetic mystery of the Ages?
Dikenga Kongo Cosmogram
There are many ways to look at Tendwa Nza Kongo, Dikenga, or Yowa,the symbol some call the Kongo Cosmogram. It is ancient and the foundation of many systems of philosophy and culture. It can be found in the Americas as the Medicine Wheel and in the Mandala’s of Tibetan Buddhism as well as in the hermetic system of the Tarot. The Kongo Cosmogram is a universal glyph, a map of the crossroad between the spiritual and material worlds.
KALA- (Ki-kongo name- black like charcoal)

@ 37:31 till the end of video…
Thank you Carmen Boulter for your insights.
We learn that Dahshur had a BLACK and RED Pyramid and the BENT Pyramid was WHITE!!!
The BENT pyramid was WHITE!!!
Recall the STRAIGHT WHITE LInE that passes through the center of our magnetic modEL below is WHITE!!!
But is it STRAIGHT?
Einstein taught us that the STRAIGHT LINE would be BENT.
Galileo suggested an object would tend to move in a straight LInE unless an outside force was acting upon it.
I AM told nature does not like using straight lines to get the job done.
Maybe the BENT pyramid was designed by the Einstein or Onestone genius of his day who knew how to measure BENDS?
Ein – One
Stein – Stone
Do you rEMEMber Onestone err I mean Einstein’s prediction about the light from a distant star during an eclipse would be BENT around the sun?
This prediction along with a correct measurement, others had made the same prediction before, made Einstein world famous the next day.
Well what is not obvious to folks and the volk is that ole Al Einstein instead of using the word ‘sun’ could have said ‘sol’ or even said ‘the light would be BENT around the pagan solar swastika’ with its magnetic charms.
And we know that the WHITE LINE in the middle of the magnetic field BENDS around the center.
The reason for the magnetic field is to nurture the SEED of course, a SEED that looks very much like Solomon’s Knot:
You see that is exactly what makes the swastika so special.
The asymmetrical chiral swastika is ’G'eometrically blessed in fact because of its architecture it has the magical super hero ability to bend/polarize light, that is why it is invaluable on the nano scale.
And well without getting into it on this particular blog polarization is so important in the world of light/physics, playing a very important role in nano technologies.
So being discussed in the book Lost Science of the Stone Age are the three colors.
The same three colors associated with the pyramids at Dahshur and Giza, which same three colors coincidently matches Plato’s description of the building blocks used to build the mythical ‘Atlantis’:
“All this including the zones and the bridge, which was the sixth part of a stadium in width, they surrounded by a stone wall on every side, placing towers and gates on the bridges where the sea passed in.
The stone which was used in the work they quarried from underneath the centre island, and from underneath the zones, on the outer as well as the inner side.
One kind was white, another black, and a third red, and as they quarried, they at the same time hollowed out double docks, having roofs formed out of the native rock. Some of their buildings were simple, but in others they put together different stones, varying the colour to please the eye, and to be a natural source of delight.”
Please keep in mind that these discussions regarding the global universality of the swastika should really start around 10,000 B.C.
5 GREAT REASONS
#1 - 10,000 BCE is the EARLIEST swastika on record traced to the Ukraine. (see image above)
go to this link:
#2 - 10,000 BCE is the same approximate time line as Plato’s destruction of Atlantis.
#3 - 10,000 BCE is the approximate time line as the theory proposed by Robert Bauvel and other archeao-astronomers linking the intention of the Great Pyramid’s architecture to a celestial alignment that took place about 10,000 BCE.
#4 - The infamy of the swastika known by many names throughout the NEOlithic pre-literate world, during a time when books did not exist, memetics did (and still do), a time in our history that relied on symbols to act as mnemonics and mediators between ‘tribes’. It is clear from the commonality of so many symbols that the wisdom was attained via a geometric language via the right brain. (ask 21st century advertising industry if I speak bullshit)
#5 - In China the swastika is known as the Wan and the Lei Wen. It has a value of 10,000 …
“Signs and Symbols rule the world not phrases and laws”
Symbols are images that are worth thousands of words, containing wisdom accumulated, pregnant with meaning yet to be given birth.
MANY many sources including secret societies and long established religions, suggest it is an emblem that hints at an underlying universality.
Wait I forgot to add something to the above that is most important.
Today as we explore the profound intimate connections between color, frequencies, vibrations, and SOUND.
I want to suggest a quantum string theory might lead to a KNOT (node) or WEAVE theory eventually.
Did MoSeS cross the RED sea or the REED see?
Reeds are used in basket making. Reeds remind me of grids, matrices and hermetic magic squares.
MoSeS was placed in a basket in order to assist his escape as an infant from being put to death by the Egyptians.
And how does Moses floating down the Nile correspond to Krishna?
In Hinduism, the leaf of the banyan tree is said to be the resting place for the God Krishna, who, after consuming all the universe during the time of destruction, absorbs everything created and turns himself to a child as small as he could fit into the tiny leaf of the banyan tree and keeps floating in the void space, until he himself decides to recreate everything back out from him. Parallels have been drawn between this story and thepulsating theory in modern physics which hypothesizes that the universe expands and contracts in a series of Big Bangs and Big Crunches.
…interesting thing about Banyan trees is that they are part of the ‘fig’ and ‘vine’ family.
Observing patterns is important in life. Our well being depends on it. Our relationships and destructive patterns demand we pay attention to the patterns. The changing seasons and weather demand we pay attention to the patterns.
At the heart of quantum physics is recognizing the patterns and being able to make predictions, suggesting the science is credible.
Let Murray Gell-Mann explain on TED Tv the role of patterns and simplicity? And then I will show you the simple pattern I have locked onto involving 3 colors?And in doing so I will show you the beauty in this beast, the swastika.
BLACK WHITE RED
FACT of life: We can track/follow these 3 colors along with the swastika (source unknown) from 10,000 B.C. onwards.
Thousands of years of HER-story preceded but eventually succumbed to and evolved into Jesus and Christianity.
SO we have Atlantis, the Swastika, the Atlantis Cross, the Great Pyramid and 3 particular colors all connected to that time period of approx. 10,000 B.C.?
How many other artifacts, colors and numbers (i.e. re: stadia) can we trace to the Atlantis tale, giving us in fact more evidence on whether we should interpret Plato’s narrative as a LITERAL story or more importantly one to be respected on its FIGURATIVE merits too?
Would Plato’s narrative regarding Altantis still be valid today in the 21st century?
YES, I feel Plato was a bridge between the old world oral traditions that were giving way to writing. The archetypal symbolic language that has proved it transcends TIME and SPACE. And this language of archetype also discusses MOTION too.
BLACK WHITE RED
… as mentioned are the ‘building blocks’ used in Atlantis.
What if the concept of an ‘Atlantis’ is to be considered as not only from whence we came, but also where we are headed too?
Back to the future?
What if Atlantis is a SEED which has been planted in the fertile mind of man?
Atlantis represents perfection, a golden age that passed, but it also represents hope and onward to the future.
Atlantis is the carrot, the reason to get up in the morning and apply perfection to your life, a goal to give us ALL something to shoot for?
Would I be the first to suggest the four rivers in Eden represent either the cross or the human mind?
TELL ME SOMETHING and this should be quite OBVIOUS, however it is lost on me that there appears to be no official spokesperson for the transition state between the neolithic oral cultures and the birth of civilization associated with ‘writing’ and the development of the alphabet.
We seem to go directly from myths (various gods performing miracles or acts that defy nature) right into a LITERAL nonsense about the son of god performing miracles that seem to defy nature.
And modern man no longer performs miracles, we cannot defy laws of nature, we can seem to only defile nature.
Which CULTure is posited between the old world ORAL TRADITIONS practiced by the neolithic societies and the beginning of modern society we embrace today based on the ‘theory called Jesus’?
Who are the ORAL TRADITION SPOKESPERSONS that must have played a role in our society long ago.
I mean is it not obvious that the ORATORS of long ago were not only philosophers but these men and women were in fact people who were carrying forward the ORAL traditions of their pagan ancestors?
The name of the game is passing on information. Our genes do it. But how do we pass on wisdom and knowledge accumulated which is not passed on using DNA?
Plato is speaking the language of archetype that is clear to me.
Maybe on another blog we can *dissect* his entire story about Atlantis?
It is rife with numerical associations still used today by those who study gematria, numerology,
BLACK WHITE RED are also associated with the 3 Norns the weavers of fate in Norse mythology.
I have a theory about strings AND knots (nodes)….
BLACK WHITE RED are also found in the Book of Enoch as representing 3 bulls.
Before I took thy mother Edna, I saw in a vision on my bed, and behold a bull came forth from the earth, and that bull was white; and after it came forth a heifer, and along with this (latter) came forth two bulls, one of them black and 4 the other red.
chapter 85 of the Book of Enoch.
Are you ready to see how we connect the colors BLACK WHITE RED to the numbers 85 and its ‘reverse’ 58, associated in most profound manner to phi, and finally to the head of St. John the Baptist found in Amiens Cathedral, a former Templar church?
St. John the Baptist & Knights Templar were aeon-pagan NAZIs?
But why 58 and 85?
How about5:8 and 8:5?
How about .618 and1.618?
YES what we have here is yet another reference to Phi and its reciprocal phi.
I shall not be denied as I plough the field of dreams and nightmares, toward the truth using those 3 bulls to help steer me through the bullshit leaving a clear path for those who follow to sow the SEED.
Why do all Semitic alphabets (including the Runes) begin with a letter that means ox, steer, bull?
Why does Dr. Temple Grandin, the woman who thinks like a cow, appear to me as a ‘godsend’?
Watch the first video below, Temple Grandin gets straight to the point of what is lacking in our worldly consciousness today.
Some of you are wondering WHY am I trying to associate autism to the swastika?
Because there is another piece of valuable evidence that we can associate to the inherent geometry of the asymmetrical swastika.
The ever evolving awakening asymmetrical brain that assists our asymmetrical LEFT and RIGHT hands in creating and building what the mind projects.
It is not surprising or a fluke of nature that most of the building blocks the creator (you and me) need to employ to call ourselves a creator/builder in our earthly domain are asymmetrical.
Is it a coincidence or part of the design that the asymmetric properties of matter and anti-matter can be associated to the clockwise swastika and its anti or counterclockwise mirror image?
Keeping in mind the coincidence we were given an asymmetrical brain with which to figure things out. Because as somebody once noted, only an asymmetrical human could ever have figured out that the four forces of physics are asymmetrical.
FACT: from the smallest invisible building blocks up to larger scales like our own galaxy, everything is described defined as asymmetric …. or as broken symmetry.
The fact our BRAIN has its functions divided ASYMMETRICALLY, suggests the brain has broken symmetry. Thus clearly SOMETHING INSIDE our asymmetrical brains is broken and needs to be fixed?
“WHY the World Needs All Kinds of Minds”
And then a classic…The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow
Truly I feel the answers to many of our ‘woe is me mantras’ can be found in a video called The Women Who Thinks Like a Cow.
Answers are supplied by Dr. Temple Grandin an autistic woman who beat the odds.
Keep this in mind too.
MOSES WAS PORTRAYED AS A STUTTERER.
THIS IS A RIGHT BRAIN ‘AFFLICTION’.
SO THE STUTTERER MOSES DICTATED TO THE SCRIBE AARON?
WHO IT IS CLAIMED INVENTED THE HEBREW ALEPH-BETH, LEADING TO THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE and MATH, both attributed to the LEFT side of our brains.
All of the above suggests the EXODUS took place in the collective MIND, as we crossed the corpus callosum, the REED see.
Learning a new way to communicate using the LEFT side of the MIND where we find the speech center.
Moving away from symbols and signs as a form of communication progressing toward writing.
Were our Neolithic ancestors more influenced by the RIGHT Brain than we are today?
I would think yes….
Watch the videos and see if you can find the answer…who is leading us down the ‘cosmic chute’?
Perhaps toward Marko Rodin’s cosmic blender recognizable by the numbers 2 and 5?
Am I the only one that sees the sublime artistry of the creator bleeding through using color?
note that this illusion, the gospel god-spell that we are under was given birth in the Age of Taurus (the bull, the steer) circa 4000 BC – 2000 BC.
Taurus was the vernal equinox holder that time, and this Taurus bullshit cycle is about to come to a fitting end in the Age of Aquarius.
A new age assisted by the divine bovine messenger the women who thinks like a cow?
By coincidence Temple Grandin was born in the same year that Israel was resurrected, i.e. 1947?
MOOve along now?
Do we need more INPUT from the healing holistic RIGHT BRAIN and its accompanying perspectives?
Has there been too much LEFT BRAIN noise, expressed as righteous chatter, interference in our lives?
Do you want to know how to pull back the veils of patriarchal BS?
extra reading about the ATLANTIS Cross…for those inspired, who wish to learn more about how/why science and religion seem to be ‘merging’ in the 21st century.
What happens when we compare the 3 stations on each arm of the Atlantis Cross (left image) to the energy distribution in an atom, to the Bush Barrow Lozenge or to the 3 stations/zodiac signs we find on each arm of the Greek Zodiac Cross (right image)?
Does the Atlantis cross look like a magnifying glass?
What happens if we place it the magnifying glass over the SWASTIKA?
Go ahead SherLOCK, you have been given the KEY to our skeleton closet.
But do not reach into your closet and pull out a NAZI uniform or KKK costume and put it on.
Bad choice, Shakespeare (who wrote 37 archetypal scripts) offered so many more choices/costumes to don and using your imagination allow yourself to get lost in your own ME-low-drama.
I must here call attention to an ingenious theory brought forward, in 1891, by M. E. Harroy, director of the Ecole moyenne de Verviers, at the Archæological and Historical Congress of Brussels, to account for the origin of the gammadion, and its connection with the equilateral cross.
He believes he has discovered, in the arrangement of certain cromlechs, indications which would point to their having formed a sort of astronomical dial, as exact as it was primitive. For its construction he only requires three stones.
At twenty paces from a point of observation, A, let us place, he says, a stone, B, in the direction in which the sun rises on the 21st of June; then at the same distancfrom A place a second stone, C, in the direction in which the sun rises on the 21st of December.
The line B C will point north and south; A E east, and A E´ west. A B, A E, A C, and A E, will give the directions in which the sun rises on the 21st of June, the 21st of September, the 21st of December, and the 21st of March respectively; A C´, A E´, A B´, and A E´, the directions in which it will set on the same dates. This cross, illustrating the course of the sun, will naturally become the symbol of the luminary, and four strokes might have been added to the extremities of the lines in order to give “the notion of impulsion of the rotatory movement of the regulating orb.”
I will draw attention to the fact that, as the points B and C approach or go further apart, according to the latitude, this figure can only depict a cross in a fairly narrow zone of the terrestrial globe, and that, consequently, the explanation of M. Harroy is solely applicable to our latitudes. Even here, moreover, however simple the reasoning processes are which might have led to the construction of this natural observatory, there remains to be proved satisfactorily that such an idea was ever entertained and put into practice by our prehistoric ancestors.
I have admitted above that the gammadion, in so far as it was a symbol of the astronomical movement, may have been applied to the revolutions or even to the phases of the moon. The fact is all the more plausible since the equilateral cross seems itself to have been employed to symbolize lunar as well as solar radiation; if we may judge from a Mithraic image, where the points of the Crescent supporting the bust of the lunar goddess are each surmounted by an equilateral cross. In this manner the frequent attribution of the gammadion to lunar goddesses, such as the different forms of the Asiatic Artemis, might also be accounted for.
re: BLACK WHITE RED are the strings that connect the SWASTIKA to ATLANTIS
In alchemy The Great Work (Latin: Magnum opus) is a term which originated in medieval European alchemy which refers to the successful completion of the transmutation of base matter into gold or the creation of the philosopher’s stone.It has subsequently been used as a metaphor for spiritual transformation in the Hermetic tradition.The Great Work originally had four stages:1/nigredo (-putrefactio) blackening(-putrefaction) corruption, dissolution, individuation, see also Suns in alchemy – Sol Niger2/ albedo, whitening: purification, burnout of impurity; the moon, female3/ citrinitas, yellowing: spiritualisation, enlightenment; the sun, male;4/ rubedo, reddening: unification of man with god, unification of the limited with the unlimited.After the 15th century, many writers tended to compress citrinitas into rubedo and consider only three stages.However, it is in citrinitas that the Chemical Wedding takes place, generating the Philosophical Mercury without which the Philosopher’s Stone, triumph of the Work, could never be accomplished.
OK I WANT TO CONTINUE TO BUILD ON WHAT I SAID IN THESE TWO PREVIOUS POSTS:
GREEK ZODIAC CROSS and SOLOMON’S KNOT
Chemists Make Molecular Rings in Shape of King Solomon’s Knot
GREEK ZODIAC CROSS AND PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES
This image shows the path of the electron or the sun.
That’s it, it is so simple!
You can use this model for making predictions.
HOW do we make predictions using this modEL?
see #12? that is the Age of Pisces
see #11? that is the Age of Aquarius
IF that was an electron dropping a valance or orbit it would release photons of light as it gets closer to the center of the modEL surrounded by 1, 4, 7, 10.
Because the center is a ‘lower energy’ state based on a minimum entropy state.
So what would our sun do IF it follows the same rules as an electron i.e. electrons need to emit or absorb photons (light) to move UP or DOWN energy levels.
take a look at #1 the Age of Aries in the inner ring.
How it climbed out to the 3rd valance to reach the AGE of Pisces.
This clearly suggests the past 2000 years of growth was associated with the receiving or absorption of ‘light’, i.e. absorbing photons not emitting them.
Occam’s GOLDEN RULE, the simplest explanations are the best.
OK now to add to our esoteric knowledge of music, shall we take a trip in the Allosphere?
This video tour lasts only 6 min 25 seconds.
Another great TED Tv presentation.
Leading edge lectures that reach the common man.
at around 4:00 minutes we find out how to predict when a photon will be released, accompanied by the electron dropping a valance, using SOUND.
why is that significant?
The 4 Ages Model predicts just that kind of an event.
reminder please note in the model as we move from #12 to #11 on the Greek Zodiacal Cross.
So the archetypes that keep manifesting clearly suggest a simple 4 AGES Model on a center sweet spot a.k.a. the SS surrounded by 3 concentric rings.
Further to the above model, it must be noted how very easily we can show how the mnemonic structure, i.e. the Greek Zodiacal Cross which weaves itself into sacred Solomon’s Knot, also illustrates that SOUND plays a role in the quantum world.
Linked to how an electron ascends and descends these concentric rings/valances.
Photons and phonons assist electrons in moving UP and DOWN energy levels.
All we need to do is figure out if our Sun is more analogous to the electron or its anti-particle the positron.
Who is E. G. M. and what are his insights regarding SOUND?
Musical Adventures in Ancient MythologyErnest G. McClain is Professor Emeritus of Music, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, retired since 1982 and living presently in Washington, D.C.. Clarinetist, band director, author of three books mentioned above and more than thirty related essays in various professional journals, his degrees from Oberlin, Northwestern, and Columbia are in Music Education. He chooses to make these newer essays freely accessible to anyone who finds them useful, with appropriate acknowledgement. Particular attention is given to graphics essential to understanding ancient habits of thought, for mythological narrative often proves to be verbal commentary on matrix arithmetic, and many stories are best understood as straightforward musical allegory. Questions are encouraged and will be answered periodically as time and energy permits. It should be understood that the author is neither a mathematician nor a linguist, working mainly from secondary sources available in English translation as an interested observer on current developments in other disciplines. Attention is on arithmetical details not likely to be understood except by musicologists.The interpretations offered here should be considered speculative adventures of ideas in the spirit fostered by Alfred North Whitehead in his book of that title, for they concern matters which preclude certainty about the intentions of early authors. After more than three decades of work in this area it seems plausible to propose that most of the numerology in ancient mythology÷and all theology in advanced civilizations–is musically inspired and disciplined. Thus interpretation falls into the general category of Pythagorean studies for it pursues a plausible numerical logic based on the quantification of tuning theory. Foundations appear to have been laid down in the fourth millennium BC before the invention of writing, so that for five thousand years musicians have employed essentially the same fossil science. A fairly primitive arithmetic is handled with great ingenuity, ironic humor, endless word play, and considerable arithmetical elegance. Decoding is great fun when it appears convincing, and a pocket calculator takes all the labor out of ancient multiplication, so that many of these adventures become accessible to children. And because much ancient literature has never been studied carefully from a musical perspective, this adventure is just beginning.
This book that EGM wrote in 1976 was an inspiration to many truth seekers looking for a common heritage via the SOUND tracks we left behind, tracks that belonged to the herd of Pythagoreans, sound ‘tracks’ that others and time itself have dusted over…..
Unfortunately that link is missing the MAIN page/chart that I wanted to share with you.
Chart 45 is a MANDALA.
And the MANDALA is an important archetypal and architectural blueprint/mnemonic.
Attached below are the two pages missing in that link posted above that discusses how Atlantis, math, myth, music ALL COLLIDE and speak languages that share in profound concepts.
Worlds collide but so do WAVEFORMS that we cannot see, it is happening ALL the time, we are just oblivious to the sounds of silence.
In the quantum realm exist ‘whitecaps’ too!
The hills really are alive with the SOUND of MUSIC…but these slow moving masses of earth, note not glacial ice, simply cannot be heard by us.
Unless we have eruptions or earthquakes or landslides, then we hear the hills come alive with the SOUND of mother nature.
