In my last post I provided links to two free online distance calculators. I'd like to call your attention to three key numbers: the distance from the center of Noah's Arc to Rome, the distance from the center to the Great Pyramid, and the distance from center to the North Pole.

The two calculators vary slightly but show the distance from center to Rome as about 704 miles and the distance from center to the Great Pyramid as about 1411 miles. Neither will give a correct distance to the North Pole for some reason, but you can calculate it there using the latitude and longitude of Zawoz, Poland, which is about as close to the center of Noah's Arc as I can find, and the North Pole at 90 degrees latitude, and you'll find the distance from Zawoz to the North Pole is about 2818 miles. So those are the three basic numbers: 704 1411 2818

So as you can see, if we take the distance from center to Rome, 704, and double it, we get 1408 miles, which is almost exactly the distance the Great Pyramid is from center. And if we double 1408 miles again, we get 2816 miles, which is almost exactly the distance the North Pole is from center.

Keep in mind this range of miles is longer than the distance from New York to Los Angeles.

Now for those of you familiar with the basic math of music, you see that this is the pattern of the octave. If you pluck a string on a guitar or fiddle, it plays a musical note. If you place your finger at the halfway point on the string and press and pluck one side of the string, it plays the octave of the first note. The string being effectively half as long, vibrates at double time the open string, as chain reactions in the string only have to cover half the distance back and forth.

This is a fundamental idea of music. So when someone sings do re mi fa so la ti do, if they are singing in tune, the last do will have double the frequency of the first do, ie their vocal chords will be vibrating double time to produce the second do as opposed to the first. On piano the second do would be one octave to the right of the first, and have the same note name.

You can extend this idea and play yet another do one octave further to the right on piano, which will be double time the frequency of the previous do, and continue in this fashion. You get these notes with a string by continuing to cut the string length in half from the previous. So the open string on a fiddle plays a note, pressing at halfway plays the octave of that note, pressing at one quarter and playing the short side plays the octave of that, pressing at one eighth plays the octave of that, etc. Well, the Noah's Arc gives us the same pattern. It is, among other things, a gigantic multidimensional musical instrument, as you will see.

What first prompted me to measure the distance from the center of Noah's Arc to Rome and compare it to the distance from center to the Great Pyramid was the saying, “Nero fiddled while Rome burned.” I sensed there might be meaning in this, similar to the Ararat code in bibles. Nero suggests Near O, and implies a Far O. Far O only sounds like one word to me, pharaoh, as in Egypt. So I checked out the distances of Rome and the Great Pyramid to center and voila, the Near O – Far O pattern emerged. I took out the compass and put the point at the center of Noah's Arc on the globe, and put the pencil end on Rome and drew a circle going thru Rome and around, the Near O. Keeping the point at center I extended the pencil end out to Giza and drew that larger circle, which has double the radius of the first circle, creating the Far O. I write about this at polkadot. It was later that I realized if I double the radius yet again it hits the North Pole.

So as I worked with this I realized that Nero fiddled while Rome burned is talking about music (among other things). So I explored this further, wondering if this octave pattern I was seeing could be extended further. I saw that Rome was about 704 miles from center, and realized that if I use this number, 704 can be reduced, using the octave principle of cutting an interval in half, all the way to 11 miles. In other words, half of 704 is 352 and as we continue we get to 176, then 88, then 44, then 22, and then to 11 miles.

Well that was pretty cool to see. So in other words, if you put your compass point on your globe at the center of Noah's Arc, and place the pencil end on the North pole, this gives you an interval of length, similar to the idea of a length of a string on a fiddle. Now if you draw that circle around the center you'll have this huge circle on your globe. Now if you keep the point on the center of Noah's Arc and move the pencil end to one half the distance from the North pole, and draw that circle, that will go thru the Great Pyramid. If you cut the distance in half again, keeping the center the same, and draw that circle, it will go thru Rome, at about 704 miles out. And you can keep doing this, drawing a circle at 352 miles out, then half that, at 176, then 88, 44, 22 and finally at 11 miles out.

So working with this I could see Noah's Arc was tied in with Music, but I was puzzled as to why it was oriented with the number 11? 11 is part of the math of Music, but it is considered dissonant, eerie. I wondered if the establishment has been up to their old tricks, ie, is the modern “mile” a deliberately out of kilter measurement? Now to me the number right next to 11, the number 12, that is a most harmonic number, and is found in ancient patterns such as The Clock, the Calendar, the Zodiac. So, the distance from the center of Noah's Arc to the first ring here is 11 modern miles. What if you changed the length of these miles, shortened them, so that this first ring would be 12 of these new miles out instead of 11. So when I calculated this, what emerged? The “Roman mile”.

THAT was pretty cool. Roman miles were shorter than modern miles, about 11/12ths the length. You'll find various claims for what the length of the Roman mile really was, but they are all in this range of about 11/12ths of the modern mile.

It looks like the Roman mile may have been set to 75 Roman miles per degree of latitude. Multiplied by 360 degrees, this gives us a polar circumference of the Earth of 27,000 Roman miles. The polar circumference of the Earth in modern miles is 24,860. 24,860 divided by 27,000 is very close to 11/12ths. Check it out.

So in other words, these rings coming out of the center of Noah's Arc, if calibrated in Roman miles, would be at 12 miles out, then 24, then 48, 96, 192, 384, 768 (hits Rome), 1536 (hits Great Pyramid), 3072 (hits North Pole). And in fact inside the 12 mile ring you could put a 6 mile ring and within that a 3 mile out ring. So the pattern from center would begin: 3 6 12 24 48…

Let's check the math here. If Rome is 768 Roman miles from center, then in modern miles that would be 768 times 24860/27000 which equals about 707 miles, double that is 1414 miles, and double that is 2828. It looks like the math works. 707 miles from the center of the Noah's Arc, in modern miles, probably falls within Rome city limits, 1414 miles out is right next to the Great Pyramid, and 2828 miles out is 10 modern miles from the North Pole, which at this scale I'd say is a hit.

So in summary, it looks like the Noah's Arc is calibrated in Roman miles, and is based on the laws of harmonics. Btw if you try to calculate one degree of latitude using modern miles, it comes out to 69.0555… modern miles per degree or thereabouts. Lest you think kilometers are harmonious with the Earth, they give you 111.111… kilometers per degree of latitude or thereabouts. The Earth is not an exact sphere so latitude distances vary slightly depending where you are on the Earth. It looks to me like the Roman calibration is a lot more harmonious, I have to say. Pretty good for people who thought the Earth was flat.

Btw, I googled my name, using quotes, “Tom M Culhane”, to see if my posts here (I first joined the Graham Hancock forums a couple weeks ago) show up. Google can't find them, and it can't find the three years of posts I've made at polkadot, and I always use Tom M Culhane, but it does find a post at some unexplained mysteries forum, where they copied some of what I have written here in this forum, to have a “discussion” over at that forum. They claim that my assertion that the distance from center to Rome is half that to the Great Pyramid is half that to the North Pole doesn't check out, so there is no need to read further any of my material.

They just never stop, do they? Your tax dollars at work.
