Re-Presenting: Design Behind the Ancient Mysteries Part 3



Part 3 of "Design Behind the Ancient Mysteries" (from 2005). I thought this would be a 4-part presentation of the original paper, but I see that what would have been part 4 was in fact included in the 2009 post, Challenge to Science III, as an "UPDATE":

The “gods” adopted the idea of projecting the celestial sphere onto the terrestrial globe in order to record their design deeds. They provided for a whole series of precise, easily-identifiable mappings of “heaven on earth”, by shaping landmasses on Earth to match constellation forms (Figure 10, next page). For example, the main form of the constellation Cepheus can be precisely mapped onto the African Horn, the forepart of the constellation Centaurus closely resembles the form of the eastern coast of North America, Crater can be precisely fitted to Hudson Bay, and so on.

Figure 10--Examples of constellation forms matched to continental outlines.


Such wholesale, precise re-formations of continental landmasses by the “gods” would explain the creation accounts, in Genesis and in other religious traditions, which stressed that God “separated the land from the waters.” These re-formations also left the landmasses with an abundance of creature-like shapes, almost all upright on the globe and hence clearly the work of design. These creature images can be identified with the best known of mythological characters, worldwide (as treated in some detail in "The End of the Mystery").

Only in the last century has science shown that the continents have indeed been broken up, moved over the surface of the Earth, and re-formed. The idea of “continental drift” was resisted for decades, because geophysicists saw no natural force capable of it. But the design of the "gods", and the ancient testimonies that derived from it, are quite clear (again, as detailed in "The End of the Mystery"): The designers broke apart, moved, and re-formed whole continents into their present locations and shapes, in order to enable various constellation forms to be matched to various landforms, in a series of mappings of "heaven onto earth" that, together with the myths and other ancient traditions of mankind, tell the story the "gods" wanted to leave behind for man to find, when he had grown enough in understanding to see it. These mappings were undoubtedly the objective origin of the ancient religious tradition, and prime hermetic dictum, of "as above, so below", or "on earth as it is in heaven." (This should not be taken as the only meaning of that worldwide tradition; it was affirmed as a primary spiritual truth. The author’s research has been to establish the objective, physical origin of the world’s strikingly similar mythologies and traditions, not to deny the spiritual.)

A particularly clear demonstration of the fact of the design, and its precision, is shown in a generic mapping of the celestial sphere, as in Figure 2, onto the Earth, which may be termed a precessional mapping, with the celestial north pole mapped onto the terrestrial north pole. Figure 11 shows such a mapping, whose defining feature is the location of the vernal, or spring, equinox point on the Earth, which was established at the island of Sulawesi.

Figure 11--Ancient precessional mapping of celestial sphere onto Earth.


Sulawesi (formerly Celebes) is shaped like the mathematical symbol and Greek letter "pi", and the author has verified the ancient use of that name, "pi", for the vernal equinox point on the Earth. Figure 12, next page, shows a close-up of this point, showing how the adjacent coast was curved around it, with a diameter the same as that of the Sun in the sky (0.53 degrees), to represent the point where the Sun rises above the (celestial) equator, on the first day of spring.

Figure 12--Close up of the vernal equinox point on the Earth.


This point on the equator, at the very tip of the Manimbaya peninsula, was the literal "spring of Urd (Earth)" of Norse myth, an identification which enables one to precisely locate all the major points of the Norse mythography (Figure 13).

Figure 13--The precession mapping and Norse mythical places.


This part of the Earth was named the "Orient" to refer to the symbolic "rising" of the Sun here as on the vernal equinox; it was called the "East" for the same reason, because the Sun also "rises" each day (above the horizon), in the east. Also, Figure 12 refers to a "Great Mapping", according to which the Earth was designed; in this mapping, Japan lay along the rising path of the Sun--and so it was called the "land of the rising sun" (although it is not the only land on that path).

Four of the mappings identified by the author, in particular, unequivocally and precisely show where the ENP formerly was on the celestial sphere, by identifying the former precession circle around it (Figure 14)--proving that the orbit of the Earth, and the entire solar system (which is predominantly aligned with the Earth orbit), was deliberately changed from that previous orientation.

Figure 14--Precession circle around the former ENP.


Readers are referred to The End of the Mystery for a fuller treatment of this and many other revelations provided by the great design of the "gods".

Re-Presenting: Design Behind the Ancient Mysteries Part 2



Part 2 of "Design Behind the Ancient Mysteries". You should note, with grateful astonishment (as I did, when I discovered each one), the number of ancient mysteries (both known, and ignored up to now, by science) that are casually explained in these posts.

There are elements of obvious design around both the ENP and its southern counterpart, the ecliptic south pole (ESP), showing that the ecliptic axis--and the orbit of the Earth--was designed to be where it now is. Immediately surrounding the ENP (Figure 3) is a highly symmetrical truncated pyramid of stars (Xi, Epsilon, Psi1 and Zeta, all in Draco), with the ENP within 0.5 degree of its very center (Figure 5).

Figure 5--The truncated pyramid around the ENP.


This precise pyramid shape was responsible for the “nemes” headdress of ancient Egypt, worn by all the Pharaohs and the Great Sphinx at Giza (Figure 6), and it was also the shape once given to the Egyptian goddess Nut, who represented the overarching sky (Figure 7).

Figure 6--The nemes headdress on Pharaoh Ra ‘djedef and on the Sphinx at Giza.


Figure 7--The Egyptian sky goddess Nut in the shape of the nemes.


The very name "nemes" for this shape inside the precession circle, or sacred "garden", is of central importance, for in Greek mythology also the term “nemes” or “nemea” occurs, in the same sacred contexts we have already observed, both as the sacred “grove” (literally, a tree-garden) of one or another high god or goddess (e.g., “Nemean Diana”, “Nemean Zeus”) and as “Nemesis”, the wrathful purveyor of divine justice (just as the circle and line were the symbol of Shamash’s divine justice). In fact, the author has shown (in "The End of the Mystery") that the lion-bodied Sphinx with its nemes headdress stands as an ancient image of the "Nemean lion"--the object of the first of the "Twelve Labors of Hercules" in Greek myth--the original of which was the recumbent-lion shape of the constellation Leo (as many have guessed but no one has before proven): The recumbent lion image was an Egyptian hieroglyph today transliterated as "rw", which however the ancient Egyptians themselves used to stand for the "l" in non-Egyptian words (as in the names "Ptolemy" and "Cleopatra"), and which the author has demonstrated could be pronounced "lee-ooh" or "leo" (the "leo" portion of "Cleopatra" itself was sometimes written hieroglyphically by the "rw"-lion "l" symbol followed by the symbol today transliterated as "w", which the author has shown was originally pronounced "ee-ooh"--"you"--and "ee-oh"); the Egyptians thus knew the lion by the same name, "leo", we know today.

The extended curve of Draco within the northern precession circle gave rise to the oriental “tai chi”, or “yin/yang” symbol, and Draco along with the brightest stars of Ursa Major (i.e., the bowl of the Big Dipper) became both the Azure Dragon of China (Figure 8) and the Feathered Serpent of Meso-America, and other similar representations.

Figure 8--The “tai chi” (yin/yang) design and the Azure Dragon.


(Again, there is not room here to present all the overwhelming evidence. For example, the identification of the origin of the "tai chi" is proved not just from the precise geometrical fit shown in the figure, but by the meanings given every representative of the precession circle in world myths, and by the very names given those representatives. The precession circle was known worldwide as the "eternal way": With the ENP at its center, it was the "way of the tree of life", the boundary of Eden of Genesis 3:24. The word for "way" in Egypt was "ta"--plural "tau"--and in the Orient, "tao"; also, in Genesis 3:24, just quoted, the word used for the “way” of the tree of life is “derek,” from the root “da-rak,” in which “ta” can be clearly seen as “da.” From other evidence, the author has shown that the circle of the precession around the ENP was most probably "jw-ta", or "ju-ta", meaning the "way of divine justice", hence such names as the Egyptian "Duat"--or "ju-at"--for the home of the gods, "Zeus" or "Ju-piter" for the most high god, "jew", from "judah", and if one reads the syllables in the reverse order, "ta-jw", or "tai-chi". The “w” in “jw”, the author has shown, was originally “ee-oh” or “ee-ooh”, or “eu” as in “Zeus,” and of the words proceeding from the root “jw-ta,” in many languages, some retained the “ooh” or “u” sound, while others the “ee.” This explains the name “Giza”--pronounced “jee-za” by the Arabs to this day--for the pyramid and sphinx complex outside Cairo, Egypt, for the author has shown that this complex, located at the center of the circular arc of the Nile delta to the north, was meant to represent the ENP at the center of the precession circle, thus it was named after that circle “jw-ta,” or “jee-za”. The "tai-chi" is known as the symbol of "eternal return", a name which applies perfectly and uniquely to the precession circle, at every level of study, from the purely visual image, through its central, physical significance, to its deepest symbolic meaning. The precession circle was in this regard represented as the Wheel of Fortune, the "way of life" to which the soul of man was eternally bound, eternally returning, until he advanced sufficiently to escape it.)

The author has calculated the probability that the ENP should be at the center of such obvious designs (not all of which have been mentioned here), by chance alone, to be less than one in a million million million. This amazing physical fact, indicating deliberate design not just of the Earth’s orbit but the entire solar system, is in perfect harmony with the mythological traditions around the world, which speak of a "birth of the new gods" (led by "Zeus", for example, and represented by the planets) and of a succession of Suns, or of the “runaway” or “death” of an earlier Sun--the Greek tale of Phaethon, for example, or the Norse Ragnarok--in which much of the Earth was said to have been burned up.

There is also design evident around the ecliptic south pole, or ESP, the southern counterpart to the ENP (Figure 9). The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is just beside the ESP, but much more exciting is the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), which is just at the rim of the southern precession circle, and incorporates an actual, precise pointer, both to the circle and its center.

Re-Presenting Old Articles -- Design Behind the Ancient Mysteries Part 1



Old articles I wrote and presented, on my lulu.com site and on newsblaze.com, have all disappeared. I have just made myself aware of this (they were up for years, and I just stopped checking on them). I will re-present some of them here now, as I have done three times in recent days already. The following is the first part of a larger piece I wrote, originally in 2005, which introduces my unprecedented discovery of the "Great Design of the 'gods'". (I linked to it, on a now-disappeared web page, on this blog in 2009, in the post Challenge to Science III. I sent it, as noted there, to President-Elect Obama immediately after the 2008 election.). I think I will re-present it here in 4 parts:

Summary:

All of the sacred traditions of man on Earth are indicated to have originated in a great physical re-formation of the surface of the Earth and of the entire solar system, by the "gods" of worldwide myth and legend. This design requires a new paradigm of scientific investigation and a re-thinking of modern scientific theories, especially the earth and life sciences.

Introduction:

The most ancient traditions of man worldwide speak of a time when “gods” ruled; even in the Bible, in the book of Genesis, God is given the plural name Elohim and refers to Himself as “us”, and the unexplained "sons of God", interacting with the "daughters of men" to produce the heroes of old, the "men of renown", are the prime movers of world events leading to the flood of Noah. The ancient worldwide stories about the gods, and the heroes who interacted with them, are today called myths and are practically defined as fantastic, patently untrue tales about the origin of the world and man. The myths all characteristically affirmed that the gods made or re-formed the world.

The author, an experienced research physical scientist, has proven the existence of those who were known to ancient man as the “gods”. He has found their own records, in a great design written upon the celestial and terrestrial spheres (in the forms of the constellations and the ocean-outlined landmasses) that, together with the myths and other ancient knowledge handed down throughout history, reveal a coherent, objectively-verified story of the time of the “gods”, and the origin of the world as we know it. All of the major mythological traditions refer directly to the central elements of the world design, containing symbolic, dramatized descriptions of the images wrought in the design. These precise images, precisely described in myth, were the original “sacred images” of mankind, and the descriptive words of the myths were likewise based upon sacred originals, in an original world-tongue, whose meanings are preserved in the many similar words the peoples of the Earth use to this day. All that mankind now is--its languages, its cultural traditions, all of its highest endeavors--initiated in or passed through the defining filter of the great design. After the “gods”, people could not see the design, nor entirely understand the knowledge they inherited, resulting in thousands of years of religious misunderstanding, division and dogma.

In a short paper, only the most obvious proofs of the design of the "gods" can be presented. Readers are referred to the author’s book, "The End of the Mystery" (Volumes 1 and 2, available on amazon.com), for much independent, interlocking supporting material.

The central fact of the design--which may be first simply stated, then supported with objective evidence--resides in the basic structure of the solar system and the motions of the Earth within it: The solar system revolves, predominantly and approximately, around a single axis, which can reasonably be defined by the Earth’s own orbital axis (all the planets except Pluto orbit in nearly the same plane as the Earth, and even the Sun spins about roughly the same axis). When the great design was implemented, Earth (and the rest of the system) was made to orbit in a new plane, and its spin axis was tilted (by about 23.5°) with respect to its orbital axis. It was set up exactly as a leaning, spinning top, a child's toy, and like a top its spin axis precesses, around its orbital axis (Figure 1). Its spin axis points to the celestial north pole, or CNP, among the stars, and its orbital axis points to the ecliptic north pole, or ENP. Precession causes the CNP to circle the ENP, with a period of almost 26,000 years.

Figure 1--Precession: The Earth as a top.


One can visualize the precession of Figure 1 in the larger context of the celestial sphere, by projecting that sphere onto the surface of any conveniently-sized smaller sphere. The “gods” used the Earth itself for this, as we will see. This allows one to literally “look down on all of creation.” One can readily compare the view of the precession circle on the celestial sphere (Figure 2, next page) with the image of the precession in Figure 1.

Figure 2--The celestial sphere projected on a globe, showing the precession circle.


Figure 3--The precession circle and constellations, as seen from Earth.


The image of the precession circle on the heavenly sphere (Figure 3, looking upward from the Earth in this view) was the primary focus of every major mythological tradition, including Greece, Scandinavia, India, Egypt, China, Meso-America, and so on. Most fundamentally, the area within that circle was the "home" and "garden" of the “gods” in every tradition: Olympus, and Hyperborea (Greece), Asgard (Norse), the lotus of creation (in both India and Egypt), Swarga (India), Xian (China), the Duat (Egypt)--and the garden of Eden, of course: The ENP point at the center of the circle was remembered in every major tradition as the Tree of Life in the center of the Garden. The constellation Draco--the dragon, or serpent--surrounds the ENP and its primary form lies within the precession circle, so it represents the serpent in the garden (it was also "leviathan", the "twining" serpent). The succession of CNP points that define the circle were represented in myth as mountain peaks, or “points”; thus we read of “many-peaked Olympus”, the “many-pointed lotus”, and the many “peaks” independently said to surround Xian and the Duat. The area inside the circle was Hyperborea, or “beyond north”, because its rim always just touched celestial north, the CNP (Figure 2). Also important was the double-cone shape carved out by the Earth’s spin axis as it precessed around the orbital axis.

Figure 4--Ancient usage of the precession images.


Figure 4 shows two ancient illustrations, from c. 2000 BCE, which feature the characteristic images of the precession. On the left, Ur-Nammu waters the Tree of Life before Shamash, the god of justice; on the right, Hammurabi stands before the same god, who holds the same object in both images. The first image shows the Tree of Life growing from a double-cone shaped container, precisely like the ecliptic axis at the center of the precessing spin axis in Figure 1. The cup held by Ur-Nammu is also double-cone shaped, and represents the “golden cup of the Sun” of many mythological traditions, including most famously the Holy Grail, the cup of the “Son” of God--the right-hand illustration in Figure 1 shows the instantly recognizable goblet shape of the double-cone with the (Earth) sphere at its middle; “grail” comes from an earlier “grial”, and the Irish word for the Sun was “grian”. The object held by Shamash, consisting of circle and straight line--the sacred symbol of his divine justice (in this context, the right-hand illustration adorns the top of a stele containing the famous Code of Hammurabi, a celebrated milestone in human justice)--is identifiable as the precession circle and the 0h/12h line of right ascension, leading to the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, as shown on the right in Figure 2 (the view seen by looking straight down on the CNP).

The World is In the Hands of Children



I wrote the following article back in 2009, on newsblaze.com, as part of my initial foray into seeking recognition on the internet (going to the people directly, not to "peer review", which was and is a farce, as all entrenched institutions are, when it is time for them to hand over the reins of power to new knowledge). It is time to bring it forward again, because it is worthy of your kind (or even not so kind) attention, especially when you consider it was written off-the-cuff, and at the very outset of the current world insanity outbreak:

The mind of man wants to soar, to be as free as the wind that blows. Artists and creators of every kind, in all times, speak about the need to let their creativity "flow" like the wind, or a stream flowing without hindrance over the Earth. In Nature, if you try to block the "natural flow", the pressure builds up behind the block until you risk destruction of all that you have built on the other side of it; a poignant example of this is what happened to New Orleans -- below sea-level, and protected by levees -- during Hurricane Katrina: Washout City, literally.

In the 1630's, the mind of Galileo was blocked by the Church, as he sought to communicate a new knowledge of the world. He was eventually tried (by the Church, mind you, not a civil court), forced to recant his claim that the Earth moves around the Sun, and sentenced to house arrest for the remainder of his life. Does the phrase, "there's no law west of Dodge" ring a bell?

That's right; Galileo had ventured, as an innocent scientist seeking the truth, into a lawless frontier, full of bullying, sacrosanct ideas, and was simply shot down in the street, in a manner of speaking. Scientists ever afterward have celebrated him as one of the key figures, if not the very father, of modern science. And the war between science and religion, like the war between the sexes, is a perennial (and often laughable) spectacle to the innocent layperson, who is no expert and feels no real loyalty on either side.

Which brings us to myself. I am the Galileo of this age, and like him I am an independent scientist. Only today, the bullying authority that opposes and suppresses me is the scientific consensus itself, which the public largely accepts without question. Its sacrosanct idea is that there are only undirected physical forces behind all that we see, on the Earth and in the universe beyond, and that deliberate design of the world cannot be considered in science. As an innocent scientist, however (just like Galileo), I have found and verified just such a world design. (You can learn about it in my books, and in my blog, "Earth and Man: Setting the Stage.") It is a fact, which I cannot ignore, nor can I be silent about, for it goes to the very heart of an unrecognized crisis of competence in science today, a science that upholds naive myths of "plate tectonics", "ice ages", and other accoutrements of a supposed "evolution" of the Earth itself, from primitive ball of matter to "living world". The "explanations" of science today -- particularly, but not only, in the earth and life sciences -- are increasingly the stories of children, made to entertain children, and more darkly, to protect unquestioned and unsupported dogma.

You might think I would be protected (in this modern intellectual version of the Wild, Wild West) by the "creationists" and "intelligent design" claimants, since I'm talking about design of the natural world, but you would be wrong. The design I found is not the design of life, nor the one-time creation of the world, by a supreme God. What I have proven as fact -- and I know many think we can't speak of "proving" anything; but tell that to all the engineers and inventors who have built our modern world upon proven knowledge, or to physicists like myself whose professional business it is to prove what we say about the world -- what I have proven is a late and wholesale re-formation of the surface of the Earth (between 20,000 and 10,000 years ago), by those known to ancient man worldwide as the "gods" of myth and legend. The "gods", not God, once walked the Earth, and taught man all that he knew, thousands of years before the beginning of known human history. The debates of today over the origins of the Earth and the life on it are intellectual wars between the followers of the categorical Absolutes: God versus Chance. The reality is that, somewhere between creation of the material universe and the beginning of human history, a race of godlike men remade the surface of the Earth and the entire solar system, and imparted to it all a complex design intended to communicate a coherent message to man on Earth. That complex message became the early religious belief of mankind, the progenitor of every field of human thought. But it was passed down by a mankind in childhood, in fragments descriptive of the images wrought in the design and imbedded -- in disguise, as fantastic characters, objects and lands -- within the exciting stories known today as myths.

But what does this all mean for us today? It means, first of all, that the science programs you see on TV about the origin of the Earth and the life on it, are modern myths. The Earth did not evolve, mindlessly -- it was made, as deliberately and as precisely as Walt Disney World was made. The "expert" scientists you see on these programs have themselves been educated in myth, masquerading as science: the myth that the relatively weak and undirected geological processes of the last 10,000 years, if given four and a half billion years to work, and aided by the occasional "killer" asteroid impact or other catastrophe from space, and any required number of other convenient cosmic accidents (the list keeps growing), can account for the creation of the Earth as we know it. These are bedtime stories -- or "Ask Mr. Wizard" Saturday morning fare -- and the scientists who tell them are inept at best.

Religion too, worldwide, has been the victim of the misplaced concreteness of ancient myths, in which mere likeness of an image to something both familiar yet fantastic was taken by man to be a sacred assurance of the existence of that fantastic thing. Thus, the outline of Africa on the globe looks like a man's face in profile, only with a horn growing out of his forehead; and thus it was that the "Horned One" was born, in all his mythical guises, whether as the Devil or as the god Thor, who once got a "hone" imbedded in his forehead in a fight with a giant, or any number of other mythical horned characters. Modern scientists don't want to hear that Africa looks like a horned man, but it does. They don't want to admit there was intent behind it, but there was. This and a thousand other evidences of design of the world they absolutely refuse to countenance as scientific evidence, because they don't know the overall design into which they all fit. They are children, you see, easily tired out by a world more complex than they are prepared to acknowledge, a world which contains things far beyond the bounds of their childish theories.

Put this knowledge alongside the childishness you have witnessed in recent years in our political and financial systems, and there is only one conclusion: The world is in the hands of children.

Vanishing Probability the Present Ecliptic Is a Chance Occurrence



Yesterday I re-published on this blog an article I first published on lulu.com 15 years ago. The following is another early article I placed on that site 16 years ago:

Abstract: It is claimed herein that there is a common objective origin to the myths, legends and other ancient traditions of mankind, worldwide: It is a design, set into the spheres of “heaven” (the starry sky) and Earth, by those known as the “gods” in myth and legend. It is claimed the design entailed the re-orientation and re-formation of the entire solar system, and the re-formation of the landmasses on the surface of the Earth, as well as the conceptual linking of stars on the celestial sphere into the constellation forms known to this day. The remaking of the Earth forms and the invention of the constellation forms were done to enable the matching of forms on the two spheres of “heaven” and Earth, in a series of precise mappings of the former onto the latter. This was done in order to convey a history of the design deeds of the “gods” to anyone who discovered and correctly interpreted their many features. These mappings were the origin of the prime hermetic dictum, “As above, so below,” or “on Earth as it is in heaven.” Physical evidence of the re-formation of the Earth’s landmasses can be seen in their shapes, which exhibit many creature-like images, whose overwhelming uniformity of orientation toward the north proves their deliberate design. Physical evidence of the re-orientation of the solar system resides in obvious design elements (for which chance can be overwhelmingly ruled out as the cause) associated with the areas on the celestial sphere on and around the poles of the ecliptic -- the approximate axis of the solar system -- and at other celestial sites defined by the current placing of the ecliptic axis; one series of heaven-to-earth mappings also clearly and precisely indicates the former position of the ecliptic axis. The most famous of worldwide myths, legends, traditions and symbols also provide universal ancient testimony, all directed toward the aforementioned celestial design elements, and toward the Earth’s creature images; the celestial area surrounding the current ecliptic north pole (ENP), for example, was the “home” and “garden” of the “gods” in all of the major mythological traditions, and the position of the former ENP can be independently verified from myths such as the “Twelve Labors of Hercules”. Discovery and successful interpretation of the design enlightens all of the so-called “ancient mysteries”, and corrects some basic flaws in the modern scientific consensus. In this article, attention will be narrowly focused, upon the most directly observable and verifiable physical evidence for a past re-orientation of the solar system -- those clearly designed elements associated with the ENP position -- ignoring for the present a large amount of supporting evidence from ancient testimonies, and from the several aforementioned mappings that actually pinpoint the former ENP. (That proof, of the precise position of the former ENP as commemorated in the Great Design, is in my 2009 post, Challenge to Science III)

A feature common to the most ancient testimonies of mankind, the world over, are myths told about a race of all-powerful “gods” who once ruled the Earth, and who were generally credited with creating it. This and all other ancient traditions were characteristically fantastic, magical, and yet religiously maintained over many generations. These traditions were believed to be literally the sacred truth about the world, and they were the forerunners of all later religious faith. They are today commonly considered mere superstitions, patently untrue, but if that is so, one is left with explaining the complexity and cohesiveness of the ancient canons, the common elements found in myths worldwide, and the manic, worldwide determination to remember them perfectly, even over millennia. The very simplest hypothesis that would account for all of these characteristics is that the ancient traditions all proceed from a common, and an objective, source. A common thread among them was the idea of number, of design, and of image -- sacred image. Another was the perceived division of the universe, between the earth wherein man dwelt, and heaven, the home of the gods. With all these ideas in mind, the author in 1996 determined to study the heavenly sphere -- which scientists today still call the celestial sphere -- to see if there might be some apparent design among the stars that could have served as the common source for widely-scattered but similar traditions among men. In August 1997, the author found such a design; it was in fact but the central element of a much larger design, whose recognizable boundaries would eventually grow to cover the spheres of both the Earth and heaven.

Quite apart from all the evidence the author has found that ties the ancient traditions of mankind to the specific images and story implied by the design, the designers were careful to arrange elements with mathematical precision that would make plain that those elements were intelligently designed. One need not even know the purpose of a given such arrangement, to recognize that it is not the result of chance.

Consider the primary motions of the Earth in space: The Earth spins upon its own north-south axis, and it orbits the Sun, in a near-circular orbit. Its orbital plane is called the ecliptic (and this is marked on celestial charts as the apparent path of the Sun among the stars over the course of the year--it is a great circle on the celestial, or heavenly, sphere). The Earth's spin axis is tilted about 23.5 degrees from its orbital axis, the latter being the approximate axis of the entire solar system, since all the planets but Pluto orbit in nearly the same plane, and even the Sun spins about nearly the same axis. In its movements, the Earth is thus like a leaning, spinning child's top; and like the top, the Earth's spin axis precesses, around its orbital axis. This causes the celestial north pole, or CNP--the direction of the Earth's spin axis, as a projected point on the celestial sphere--to circle the ecliptic north pole (or ENP), with a period of approximately 26,000 years.

In 1997, the author found a symmetric pattern of stars around the ENP point on the celestial sphere. It is a pattern whose central, religious importance to at least one ancient civilization is easily demonstrated, but we need not consider mere ancient testimonies or expressions (the author relates many such testimonies, across many traditions, worldwide, in the book "The End of the Mystery"). Here is an illustration of the celestial sphere in the neighborhood of the ENP, with the precession circle of 23.5 degrees radius around it:

The ENP is the red dot in the center of the circle, and one can see it is very near the center of the pattern of stars formed by Xi, Epsilon, Psi 1 and Zeta, all in the constellation Draco. These stars form a rhombus, or truncated pyramid shape. The symmetry of that shape is indicated in the figure by the black lines (actually great circles on the sphere), which are the perpendicular bisectors of the top and bottom lines of the rhombus -- one can see they are very nearly the same (they diverge by only one-half of a degree). The ENP point is within 0.5 degree of the center of that pattern. The stars making up the pattern are all among the 1200 or so brightest stars in the sky, and finding the ENP so near the center of such a symmetric pattern is quite unexpected, but this is just the beginning. For example--just to provide some of the wider, worldwide context this has in myth -- the author has been able to prove that the image of the precession circle on the "heavenly" sphere represented the "home of the gods", and the "garden of the gods", in every major tradition studied to date. It was, for example, the "garden of Eden", with Draco representing the serpent in the garden; it was also the "garden of Idun" in Norse myth, and the "garden of Inanna" in Mesopotamian -- all of these had a “tree of life” in the center, whose central “trunk” represented the ENP, and whose “crown” was the surrounding precession circle. It was Hyperborea and Olympus in the Greek, Asgard in the Norse, Swarga in India, Xian in China, the Duat in Egypt. It was the "many-pointed lotus" of creation in both India and Egypt (just as Olympus was "many-peaked", and Xian and the Duat were likewise characterized as being surrounded by mountain peaks--these "peaks" being just the successive CNP points around the circle). The End of the Mystery tells much more about this “blessed land” of myth.

This placement of the ENP among the stars also dictates other uncanny placements on the celestial sphere. Another anciently known plane among the stars, besides the ecliptic, is the galactic plane. Here is an illustration of the area where the ecliptic and the galactic planes cross on one side of the celestial sphere:

The galactic plane is the horizontal line through the center of the image just above, and the ecliptic is the black line crossing it, at an angle of almost exactly 60 degrees (60.189). These images illustrate a galactic alignment, with the galactic north pole (GNP) on the north pole of the sphere, and its equatorial plane on the equator. (The lines of galactic latitude and longitude are overlain to emphasize the longitude where the ecliptic crosses the galactic plane.) Again, there are many associations of this area with elements in many myths around the world, but we won't go into them here; we will only state that this is a critically important spot on the heavenly sphere according to ancient testimonies. The main concern here is to note that there is a clear, inverted "finger" in the outline of the Milky Way, that points very closely to the galactic longitude of the ecliptic/Milky Way crossing--the tip of the "finger" is just 0.02 degrees off the line to the crossing point. Note too that the Milky Way narrows to a unique, small "neck" just at this point, and the crossing point is very near the midline of the "neck" (in other words, at this point, the Milky Way is spread out nearly equally to either side of the galactic equator, which is not the case in other spots, as the larger illustration shows).

There is also an implied precession circle around the ecliptic south pole (ESP), the antipodal point to the ENP. In this area we find the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, galactic remnants on the celestial sphere:

In the above, the Large Magellanic Cloud is located just beside the ESP, and the Small Magellanic Cloud, or SMC, is located on the rim of the 23.5 degree circle around the ESP. In fact, the SMC is shaped with an actual pointer to the circle, and to its center. As the bottom image shows, the sides of the pointer cross right on the circle (at 23.507 degrees from the ESP) and the pointer is oriented very closely toward the ESP itself (the bisector of the pointer passes just 0.43 degrees off the ESP). Furthermore, if we consider the symmetric pattern of stars around the ENP, and its center point, we find that the SMC pointer passes just 0.05 degrees from it (and from the point antipodal to that center point).

It is not difficult to calculate the separate probabilities for the above close placements, at points of demonstrably critical importance either to ancient or modern observers. We will come to those calculations shortly, but first there is one more view to consider.

The author has shown, from the very names given to the image of the northern precession circle, that the famous oriental "yin/yang" symbol, or "tai chi", also came from the disposition of stars around the ENP. Here is an illustration of the "tai chi" overlain on the precession circle:

The bottom image shows how the "S" curve of the tai chi, interior to the outer circle, is generated by considering two circles having just half the radius of the outer circle. With the outer circle's radius of 23.5 degrees, these smaller circles have a radius of 11.75 degrees. Considering only the "S" curve and outer circle in the upper image, the lines of the "tai chi" closely overlie the stars Epsilon, Theta, Iota and Alpha (which is called Thuban). Epsilon is 0.255 degrees off the curve, Theta is 0.074 degrees off, Iota 0.148 degrees, and Alpha is both 0.484 degrees off the "S" and 0.138 degrees off the outer circle. The improbability of each of these close matches occurring by chance is calculated by comparing their displacements from the "tai chi" lines with the average separation between stars. Again, the stars involved are all among the 1200 (actually 1204) brightest stars, so we need only consider that number. We can closely estimate the average separation of these stars on the celestial sphere by calculating the angular diameter of a region occupying just 1/1200th of the sphere. Assuming a circle, the radius--or half the average stellar separation--works out to 3.3 degrees, which should be reduced slightly (since contiguous circles won't cover the sphere completely, i.e., they need to overlap slightly). Given a supposed arbitrary line (a line of the "tai chi" symbol) passing "close" to a given star--closer to it than its nearest neighbor--the probability that the star is by chance alone within a given small distance of the line is, on average, just that distance divided by half the average distance between neighboring stars, or approximately 3 degrees. The probability that Epsilon is .255 degrees off the tai chi line by chance alone is thus .255/3, or 0.085. The probability that Theta is .074 degrees off is .0247; the probability Iota is .148 degrees off, .049; and the probability Alpha is .484 degrees off, .161. The separate probability that Alpha is just .138 degrees off the outer circle is .138/3, or 0.046.[see note at end of this text--HDH] The probability that all of these happened by chance is the product of their separate probabilities, or about 7.6E-7--about 1 in a million.

The separate probabilities that the SMC should so precisely mark the circle around the ESP, and point so closely to the ESP, are easily calculated, and their product is 1.16E-7, or about 1 in 10 million. And the probability that the ecliptic/Milky Way crossing should be so closely marked by the galactic outline "finger" is .02/180, or about 1 in 10 thousand. We could also factor in the probability that the crossing should occur so close to the midline of a unique "neck" in the galactic outline just here, but the discussion it would require is not necessary, as we are already dealing in astoundingly small probabilities for all these matches, all of them directly due to the position of the ENP on the celestial sphere. We do need to note that the probability that the ENP should be within .5 (.477) degrees of the center of the symmetric pattern of stars surrounding it is only 1.73E-5.

Therefore, the total probability (based on the above considerations alone) for chance placement of the ENP where we now find it is no more than about 1.7E-22, or about 2 in ten thousand million million million.

When this is viewed in the context of a world full of myths about a former succession of suns, or of "twin" Suns, or the past or prophesied "death" of a Sun, it is clear that a re-formation of the solar system, deliberately placing the ENP where we now find it, was performed. In fact, the design of the "gods" involved the projection of the celestial sphere onto the Earth sphere, in a series of mappings, and at least four of these mappings rather precisely show where the ENP was on the celestial sphere before the re-formation took place. These mappings, and the indicated former ENP, are considered in the author’s book, The End of the Mystery. The re-orbiting, and perhaps first appearance of some, of the planets was remembered in Greek myth as the "birth of the new gods".

Note: Some statisticians may take exception to the author’s inclusion, in the main text, of the probability that the star Thuban in Draco is .138 degrees off the northern precession circle, and the probability that the Small Magellanic Cloud’s “pointer” is just .007 degrees off the southern precession circle. It might be argued that these factors depend on the size of the precession circle, rather than the position of the ENP per se. It is my position that the precession circles, north and south, are inextricably “attached” to the ecliptic axis, and we have to account for Thuban’s and the SMC’s improbable positions so near the rims of their respective circles. The real question here is whether it is correct to use 23.5 degrees for the radius of the precession circles: Modern theorists, after Milankovitch, claim the very-long-term average value of the obliquity is about 23.1 or 23.2 degrees. However, the author’s experience with the design, and the evidence of past observations of the obliquity going back to the first millennium BC, indicate that 23.5 degrees is the more likely value--it is certainly the most likely value built into the design: The SMC pointer argues for 23.5 degrees almost exactly, while overlaying the “tai chi” on the northern stars indicates a value of 24 degrees, very closely, but a circle of 23.5 degrees still matches the stars well, as shown in the text, and it does so substantially better than does 23.1 degrees. The obliquity has been observed to be within .0833 degrees of 23.5 degrees since about 879 AD, and even the far more ancient value of 23.856 degrees (or 23ยบ 51' 20"), quoted by Ptolemy (c. 139 AD) and claimed by him as the value also observed by his predecessors Hipparchus (c. 125 BC) and Timocharis (c. 282 BC) -- this value also being claimed for Aristarchus (c. 260 BC) by Copernicus (c. 1525 AD) -- is only 0.356 degrees from 23.5 degrees. In short, the author would prefer to withhold judgment on the values in the modern Milankovitch theory, and not consider them authoritative as yet, and prefers to work with the values indicated by the design and ancient testimonies, as well as by all the (admittedly relatively recent) observations. The author argues in "The End of the Mystery" that it seems likely that the obliquity only varies about 0.3 degrees to either side of about 23.5 degrees, rather than 1.3 degrees to either side of 23.1 degrees as the modern theory claims. The author does not insist upon this -- and evaluating the probabilites discussed in the text using a precession circle of radius 23.1 degrees still results in a determination (of about 1 in a million million million) against chance positioning of the ENP -- but considers it probable. One must dispassionately conclude that the solar system was intentionally re-formed and re-oriented. Such intentional design can and does explain other well-known, improbable observations, such as that the size of the Moon in the sky is so nearly exactly the same size as the Sun (the former averages 0.527 degrees apparent diameter, the latter 0.533 degrees). The intended meaning of this situation -- deemed merely a “cosmic coincidence” by modern science thus far -- is explained in "The End of the Mystery".

Time For a Sign

Here is another NewsBlaze.com article, on

Signs of An Amazing Time,

about the need to focus on great changes now occurring, and how insight really works.

Also, here is an eye-opening article I wrote three years ago, after finding

Independent Confirmation

by other scientists of the precise symmetry of the world design I found back in 1997, earlier illustrated in this blog in the "Challenge to Earth Scientists" and "Challenge to Science II" posts. Their own scientific papers, referenced in the above article by me, are

EarthTessellation and EarthTessellation2.

The Independent Confirmation article shows some of what I have had to deal with over the last six years, revealing how science today (and most of the alternative research community as well) simply ignores what it doesn't want to hear.

UPDATE: The original Independent Confirmation article has disappeared. See my April 14, 2021 blog post: Independent Confirmation for an updated account of this post.

Independent Confirmation of the Design (and Peer Review Indicted)



Fifteen years ago -- before this blog was created -- I wrote the following article, of an independent confirmation, of my discovery of the Great Design of the "gods", and put it on a lulu.com site, where I was then trying to sell my book, "The End of the Mystery". I later abandoned that site, when I re-presented my book in two volumes, on createspace.com and through them amazon.com. I only just discovered the article has been deleted from lulu.com, and so I re-publish it here:

The author’s book The End of the Mystery reveals that the Earth and solar system were re-formed, according to a great design, less than 20,000 years ago (between 20,000 and 10,000 years ago, roughly). This amazing discovery immediately answers many problems in current science that have simply not been noticed, or not appreciated as critical problems, until now.

Imagine, for example, that I had come forth a hundred years ago with the claim that the "gods" of ancient myth were real, and had remade the surface of the Earth, thus moving whole continents to enable a great design. Scientists could, and would, have laughed, and pointed out with derision that there was not the slightest evidence of a grand past movement of the continents over the Earth, as required by my claim. But surprise, surprise, in the ensuing hundred years the idea of just such wholesale continental movement was in fact brought forward, as early as 1912, along with serious, objective evidence in support of it. The idea was so outlandish, even without claims of design, that it took fifty years for science to finally embrace it, and call it one of the greatest discoveries ever made in science. The idea was slow in acceptance because the geophysicists for long could agree on no physical cause for such movements; even today, with the theory of plate tectonics hailed as the linchpin of all the earth sciences, there are fundamental questions about the real cause of the observed continental rifting. There is a minor revolution going on now (see http://www.mantleplumes.org) among those who claim that the deep mantle magma plumes crucial to the present theory do not exist, and that there must be rather a "top-down" cause, originating in the upper crust itself, for the many igneous "hot spots" observed or inferred on our globe. In the context of such fundamental disagreement, my discovery of a verifiable design shows that no chance-produced and complex physical mechanism--either of continuously cycling interior magma currents or of mysterious "top-down" mechanisms (one of which will be mentioned shortly here)--is needed.

In the course of my research into the design, many famous ancient mysteries have been unexpectedly and authoritatively answered. One of these is the ancient belief in the dodecahedral design of the Earth, mentioned by Socrates and taught by Pythagoras. This is the first of my findings I have found to have been independently confirmed by other professional research scientists, although they have thus far failed to recognize it as a deliberate design, instead calling it a "self-organization" of the Earth's crust. Modern science has invented many euphemistic terms to avoid recognizing design in the natural world, and "self-organization" is one of the leading such euphemisms.

Scientific verification of the dodecahedron design of Earth's landmasses can be found in the article ""Truncated-icosahedral breakup of Laurasia and Gondwana and anorogenic magmatism" (by James W. Sears, Gregory M. St. George & J. Chris Winne, University of Montana, Missoula MT 59812), available on the internet at EarthTess1. On that site, a small image resembling a soccer ball, with the caption "Self-Organization," links to another page with a further link to this article.

The abstract, or introductory summary, of this paper, reads:

"The large-scale rift systems that broke apart the Laurasian and Gondwanan supercontinents conform to the precise dimensions of a truncated-icosahedral tessellation of the Earth's surface, with triple junctions separated by 23° along great-circle arcs, and rift segments intersecting at 120° and 108°. The rift tessellations provide a minimum edge-length and therefore a least-work configuration for the fracturing of a spherical shell. Anorogenic magmatic provinces, including flood basalts, anorthosite, and granite-rhyolite and some hotspots evolved along the rift edges, especially at triple junctions. The brittle fracture pattern favors a top-down tectonic origin for some large igneous outbreaks."

The "truncated-icosahedral" pattern these scientists found looks like this over the whole sphere:

It is a "truncated" form of the regular icosahedron, a solid with 20 facets and each facet an equilateral triangle. The truncated form has 20 hexagonal facets and 12 pentagonal ones, arranged in precise pattern. Below are images of the regular icosahedron, on the left drawn over the truncated form, and on the right by itself:

The regular icosahedron has 12 vertexes, where the truncated form has 12 pentagons (formed by the truncation of those vertexes). Both forms have the same basic symmetry, of 12 equivalent axes distributed over the whole sphere. They share this same symmetry with the dodecahedron, which is a 12-faceted regular solid, with each facet a regular pentagon:

The finding by Sears et al. of a precise truncated-icosahedral pattern in the breakup of the one-time supercontinents thus confirms the dodecahedral design of the Earth’s surface. As a matter of fact, although their findings deal with the positions of landmasses at the time of the breakup, their illustrations of the truncated-icosahedral tessellation they found agree well with the primary dodecahedron pattern I found from the Great Mapping of the “gods” and the present positions of the landmasses. Here is an illustration from my book of the dodecahedron design:

The Earth dodecahedron shows pentagons centered on the north and south poles, and on the South Atlantic and Indian oceans (as well as the Atlantic). The illustrations of Sears et al. in his two articles on the breakup of Laurasia and Gondwana specifically show pentagons on the South Atlantic and Indian oceans, as well as outlining Antarctica, centered on the south pole. So Sears et al. have found essentially the same dodecahedral pattern I found, the pattern that is observable and verifiable today. The deliberate design of the Earth I found has been confirmed by scientists who had no idea of my discoveries, and who do not even interpret their finding as evidence of design. The design is thus an objective fact, independent of the observer and of any supposed personal prejudice or subjective agenda.

Epilogue:

Consensus scientists, including Sears et al., will insist that the precise tessellation of the Earth’s landmasses does not prove intentional design by some past superpower. Actually, such scientists as I have tried to inform of the design have not responded, or not confronted the idea and the overwhelming evidence for it. I first came upon the mantleplumes.org site, and the article by Sears et al. mentioned in the above text, in March 2005 (either March 19th or 20th, as I have a record of e-mailing the site on March 20th, after a quick reading of some of the material on the site). I attempted to communicate to three different e-mail addresses at this time. First, I e-mailed Dr. Sears, informing him of my prior finding of design and trying to explain why in fact his findings indicated a deliberate design rather than an undirected [i.e., not intelligently directed] breakup event. I wrote, in part:

“What would it take for you to be open to a serious consideration that the breakup of the Laurasian and Gondwanan supercontinents, according to a precise truncated-icosahedral tessellation, indicates nothing less than a deliberate design? It seems clear to me, for example, that there is a more obvious point to be made than that such a tessellation provides for a least-work fracturing of the Earth sphere, as you and your co-authors emphasize; it is that it must be very, very, very highly unlikely that an undirected natural process could deliver the proper blow to trigger such a precise, resonant breakup of the spherical crust, by what would have to be a pure icosahedral, or dodecahedral, normal mode vibration of the entire body of the Earth--for that is the only physical context in which a “least-work” argument can properly be raised: A single, complex, precise flexing of the entire surface. Furthermore, in any undirected scenario there were, and are, many fracturing events, and it is highly unlikely that such a perfect “bell-ringing” tessellation should stand out so clearly from the noisy background of the majority of fracturing episodes. Even further, the universal ancient testimony of mankind was that the world was deliberately designed, according to precise and sacred number and geometry--and the ancient mathematical tradition passed down by the Pythagoreans particularly claimed the Earth was made to a dodecahedron design, which has the same symmetry as the icosahedral tessellation you have recognized. In short, yours is but the latest revelation in precisely the same tradition as the ancient mystery traditions.

“That the continental breakup was due to deliberate design is not in fact even an arguable point, from my perspective, for I have already shown that the surface of the Earth was deliberately re-formed, less than 20,000 years ago (according to both ancient records and to the design itself, which tells a coherent ancient story, or history, and can be proved to have given rise to many of the world’s myths about the “gods” of old--and indeed, to have initiated all of the once-sacred ancient traditions that I have yet studied). I have also uncovered the dodecahedral design in the present configuration of the continents. There is far more to the design, and it is far better attested by every variety of evidence, than the tessellation you have recognized.

“Please note, I am not talking about “creation of the world” by “God,” I am talking about a re-formation of the continents by an advanced people attested to by ancient man, worldwide, as the “gods” who once ruled the Earth; the former may be outside the province of physical science, but the latter is not. I am a physicist, unbound and unmotivated by any dogma....”

I never got a response from Dr. Sears to this communication; I do not know if he even received it. When I decided to write this article, in late November or early December 2006, I revisited the mantleplumes.org site, and found a second article by Dr. Sears (at EarthTess2.html, in which he emphasized the tessellation he found as a “self-organization” of the Earth’s crust, and he gave examples of the icosahedron occurring in nature:

“Comparison of the Gondwanan tessellation with other natural examples of icosahedral arrangements provides insight into the Gondwanan fracture process. In nature, collections of particles commonly surface a sphere in icosahedral patterns. These include blastocysts, colloids, quasi-crystals, florets, and numerous icosahedral viruses, including wart, herpes, polio, and HIV....”

However, he failed to take note that in all of his examples, the icosahedral pattern was inherent in the development or formation of the body involved. This is not the case with the Earth, for which the pattern is specifically seen as appearing only with the breakup of a supercontinent. The Earth did not develop as a living organism (blastocysts, viruses), nor as a single supercrystal with icosahedral structure. Again, the Earth’s crust would only break apart in such a precise and complete geometric pattern if the causative force were such as to excite an icosahedral resonant mode of vibration in the crust, of sufficient strength to crack the entire spherical surface of the Earth, practically instantaneously (limited only by the speed of sound within the crustal material), into the complex icosahedral pattern. In other words, the Earth would have to have been rung like a bell, with a precise force precisely applied. Lacking such a precise blow, the crust could have been rifted into any number of pieces, making the argument of minimum edge-length irrelevant, for the total edge length of the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron tessellations would each be less than that of the truncated icosahedron. The very great unlikelihood of a truncated-icosahedron-producing natural blow--totally swamping the effects of any and all previous and subsequent cosmic blows--occurring by chance alone, in itself indicates only design could be responsible for the breakup of the supercontinents. Sears envisions the force to be that of an expanding mantle beneath the crust, but that would not be sufficient to enforce a precise tessellation.

I also e-mailed the mantleplumes.org site, on March 20, 2005. I had read, among other articles on that site, an article by one Gillian Foulger, in which she made the strong point:

“The plume hypothesis as it is applied today requires that Earth dynamics is driven by two independent modes of convection -- plate tectonics and plumes. The former is driven by forces at plate boundaries..., and the other is driven by heat from the Earth’s core. The new theory suggests that only one of these is needed -- plate tectonics. ... The possibility of such a radical simplification alone is a strong hint that...something important may be going on here.”

After mentioning this statement and the icosahedral tessellation found by Sears et al., I wrote to the site:

“Ladies and gentlemen of science, the ‘top-down’ origin Sears et al. envision goes much higher, and far deeper, than they imagine. Books on earth science are fond of reminding the reader that continental drift was first envisioned by the simple observation that the Atlantic coasts of South America and Africa simply look like they once fitted together. But what generations now of earth scientists have failed to notice is that such apparent fitting-together is not the primary visual characteristic of the landmasses of the Earth. Rather (and of course you will not believe this, at first), a dispassionate consideration of those landmasses reveals that they exhibit an abundance of creature-like shapes, generally incomplete or otherwise ambiguous, but many quite stunning. But here is the kicker: There are a score or more of such images to be seen, in every continent and larger island, and save for one or two, they are all upright on the globe, with north defined as ‘up.’ If you turn the globe upside-down, all resemblance of the coastlines to creature shapes disappears. (The only exception is Australia, which, upside-down, looks like a sheep dog.) I am not claiming that the Earth’s surface was deliberately reformed, and continents broken up, moved, and reshaped by design, on the sole basis of the above--although I do insist, strongly, that the uniformly upright orientation of the creature-like images on the Earth does in fact prove that they were designed, not randomly formed. But even I did not come to that conclusion by simply observing those images. I first found a symmetric pattern among the stars surrounding the ecliptic north pole (which is in fact the approximate axis of the entire solar system, and can reasonably be taken to be that axis). I found that that pattern was of central, religious importance to the civilization of ancient Egypt, and that it was but the central element of a wider pattern that was the keystone in the most ancient traditions of peoples the world over. I found, in other words, the original sacred images of mankind, in the sky and on the Earth, the common source of all the so-called ‘ancient mysteries’.

“I found that the Earth’s landmasses had been reformed to enable the deliberate mapping of the celestial sphere onto the Earth sphere. The landmasses enabled not just one, but a series of such mappings...”

After a paragraph in which I described with clear, objective examples the design I found, I continued:

“The bottom line is this: Despite the current antipathy of the scientific consensus to the idea of large-scale design of the world, it is a fact, which I, an independent researcher for the last ten years, and a hard scientist with many years of research experience in both the academic and high-tech industrial sectors, have already proven. Until the scientific consensus confronts and accepts the new facts, it is, to put it bluntly, incompetent working at the front line of human knowledge. The discovery by Sears et al. of a rigorous tessellation of the Earth, the true importance of which they and other scientists have characteristically and utterly failed to appreciate, only underscores my amazing, epochal discoveries of the design of the Earth, and indeed of the entire solar system--the physical truth behind mankind’s defining history of religiously-held beliefs. Plate tectonics as you yet conceive it has been invalidated, and generations of earth scientists have been--with reference to Isaac Newton’s famous self-appraisal--like children, playing with pretty stones on the beach, while before them stretched the true ocean of knowledge, unplumbed, unsuspected, and even denied by them, when it is pointed out.”

I got no response from mantleplumes.org either.

Now my argument about the creature images is detailed in my book. I observed those images, in the context of the world design I had found, as early as the latter part of 1997, and wrote about them as early as 1998. In January 2003, after writing my book, I sent that argument in a letter to Science magazine to announce my discoveries. I got no response from them, nor from any of my repeated attempts to communicate my discoveries to the scientific community, and I have received no meaningful or competent response to date from any scientist I have contacted. (Alternative researchers have also avoided confronting my discoveries and the overwhelming evidence I have brought forward--I have not been able to get published in alternative publications like Atlantis Rising or Nexus, any more than in peer-reviewed science journals. The minds of all have been uniformly closed.)

As already mentioned, the dodecahedron and icosahedron have much the same symmetry, and there is an additional, and quite important, point to be made with that in mind. I also communicated, in late March 2005, with a theorist named Findlay, who puts forward (as do a few other independent researchers) an “expanding Earth” theory to explain the geological evidence of the Earth. I noted that he had written to the mantleplumes.org site, “In the face of the tantalising empirical evidence for expansion it makes no sense to ignore this conclusion even though a physical cause for it is not yet obvious. Hopefully, to a ‘prepared mind’ somewhere, it will be.”

I therefore e-mailed Mr. Findlay and informed him, in part: “I can tell you the cause of the global Earth changes, and indeed it is obvious, more obvious than any evidence I have seen anywhere, outside of my own research. No one wants to hear it, and I don’t expect the geologists to exhibit my comment to them on their site...”, and I sent him what I had communicated to the mantleplumes.org site concerning my discoveries of design, at the end of which I added: “...so the new paradigm is not simply that the Earth is expanding, or even that it has expanded in the past; it is that the Earth was re-formed--designed--as a record of the ‘gods.’ I find it interesting that they may have ‘raised up’ (expanded) the Earth itself, as myths say they ‘raised up’ the sky. But design is the key.”

I got no response from Mr. Findlay either. Now my work is independent of any “expanding Earth” theory, nor have I looked into it at all, except for that one important point I mentioned: In his papers, Sears gave the single edge length exhibited in the truncated-icosahedral tessellation as 23.28 degrees. In the regular dodecahedron design of the Earth I found, the edge length is some 41.81 degrees. Now, in the context of a possible expansion of the Earth, the truncated-icosahedral pattern can be formed from the regular dodecahedron by an expansion of the surface, with the individual pentagons of the dodecahedron separating from one another on the expanding surface and coming into the truncated-icosahedral pattern, with the pentagons separated by hexagonal areas. In other words, if the expansion was done to deliberately transform a dodecahedron into a truncated-icosahedron--or to imply such a process--then the radius of the Earth would have been expanded from its initial value to 41.81/23.28 times that value, or 1.8 times its original value. Since the Earth radius is now some 3,963 miles, its original radius would have been some 2,200 miles.

2,200 miles is just the radius of the Earth’s core, as established by modern science.

So a deliberate world design, involving either a real or an implied expansion of the Earth to enable transforming a dodecahedron into a truncated icosahedron, explains the precise relative radii of the Earth and its core.
