Have you studied R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz's work as it pertains to the relationship between the bent and red pyramids? I dont buy the bent as a mistake especially after seeing the relationship between the two.

I have read that our solar system's orbital path around whatever center it revoles about (Sirius?) takes it through the galactic equator. Maybe this is the change in polarity that affects life on earth so profoundly? I would like to know more about the work of Tony Wright that Kerenza references. Anyone have any sources?gulsbo wrote:

"The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind" by Julian Jaynes The origin of consciousness is the story of the leftbrain becoming dominant. The bible (and other ancient writings) uses metaphor to reference the effects of our cerebral development (painful childbirth as the braincase grows larger) and the social division related to the advent of agriculture (Cain

Mr. Bangs, I just received your book in the mail and I look forward to reading it so we might discuss it in more depth. BTW, have you read the book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind" by Dr. Julian Jaynes. After flipping through your book, I noticed that it is wide ranging and not focused soley on sacred geometry and proportion. I mention Jaynes book in c

It is a symptom of modern life that we have denigrated the intuitive in favor of the concrete. If you can't prove it with "hard" evidence then it doesn't exist in our society. We are using our left brain too much and have forgotten how to use the other half, and are suffering because of it. In my experience, my best ideas came to me when I was doing something completely different, an

I believe it is called "Architecture without Architects". Great indiginous building solutions to local environmental challenges. After seeing this book, I had a revelation and I'd like to research it further and maybe write a short paper. Great book that will remind you that at heart, architecture is the practice of solving problems in an artful way, and that if sufficiently motivate

Kirby, I do understand the value of the simplicity and immediacy of using these time tested methods and tools. However, for my own geometric investigations, I find CAD to be extremely useful. I can download plans and images of ancient buildings and sites, import them into my CAD program , and quickly and easily analyze alignments, geometric arrangements, etc. Of course I could do the same wit

Dave, The same is true for me. I know its hard for others to understand but when you are in the correct place, mentally, the tools seem to disappear and its just your mind and the geometry. When I am working, I am unaware that I am actually using software on a computer, just as I am seemingly not actively controlling my hand, the lines just appear on the page. You have to get to a point where

Dave, Thank you. I used autocad (desktop 2004) for the angles and figuring out the siting and layout across town. Then I used GoogleSketchUpPro for the modelling. Anyone can download Goolge Sketchup for free, and then for those that need more features, you can buy the Pro package. You can easily set the lattitude for the project and it will give you accurate shadows for any time of day/year.

Here are a couple of images of my final project. This is the main structure. my lattutude here was such that the solstice angles were 29.6 degrees apart, allowing for a hexagonal form within the circle.

Mr. Bangs, Hello. I just ordered your book and hope to have it early next week. My final semester was a strange one. I had to petition to take on an independent study project so I could continue to work full time, and I chose to design a museum/learning center that would illustrate various astronomical alignments and would act as a calendar/clock in a way similar to the Star Axis. I presen

Houcad, You should check out Charles Ross' Star Axis near Santa Fe. I hope to visit someday. It is more of an educational structure, a stellar museum of sorts. I did a similar structure for my final project in architecture school, and if I can find some images I will try and post them. I had to convince a professor to allow me to attempt a project based on the alignment of ancient structures

Dr. Livio, I disagree with your statement that science and spirituality are mutually exclusive. Separation of the two results in a science that is sterile and inhuman and a religion that is more superstition and dogma than true spirtuality. A sane science needs to acknowledge the spirit (the unseen cause) and true spirituality needs to be based in part on the observable vital facts of our exis

Dr. Livio, Thank you coming here and answering questions. A few weeks ago, there was a thread discussing the possibilty that the double star Sirius might be the body that our solar system revolves about. What do you think of this and how might one attempt to prove or disprove the statement? sincerely, fisherman

Hello, I was wondering if you are familiar with the work of R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz, in particular his work with the temples at Karnak and Luxor? After his exhaustive (and exhausting, I'm sure) 15 year study of the sites, he seemed to think that the Egyptians were well aware of this attempt to quantify the generative principle of our universe that we call Phi, and used it in their art and arch

Mr. Heron, Also one can look at the way that our societies operate and it is obvious that they cannot continue at this pace destroying and polluting the environment, using finite resources at an ever increasing pace, encouraging the population explosion (for economic growth) etc. without expecting some kind of negative result.

Mr. Heron, You quoted this verse "Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the words of this prophecy....for the time is at hand." So was the author saying that the time was at hand when he wrote it, or whenever someone in the future reads it? You seem to be using it as support for your idea that the time is at hand NOW, so where in this verse does it mention that the time is 20

Claude, I spent a semester studying architecture in Rome as part of my university education, and was lucky enough to have excellent Italian instructors who pointed out many subtle features that I wouldn't have noticed myself. There is much beauty there, but there is also much wealth that was stolen, yes stolen, from the rest of the world, and to me, that tarnishes somewhat the beauty that I fou

Mark, I am far from an expert on anything. I am wider than i am deep, but that allows for a metaphorical understanding which has its own advantages, so don't feel like you need to be an expert to participate, most of this stuff is realted to things that humans can relate to intuitively so you are qualified in my book. sincerely, fisherman

Mark, As I was writing earlier, i wondered if I should attempt to speak for Jesus, and you have reminded me that I shouldn't. What I should have said was I was appalled at the material wealth that was concentrated in these buildings while people go starving and I wonder if Jesus would rather us feed the poor than to erect massive churches in is name. I also agree with you about the decadence o

Kim, I think that Egypt gets a bad rap in the bible and egyptians are usually thought of as pantheistic, but in reality they believed in a single supreme god who was composed of different aspects which were represented by the other "gods", much like the Christian god has three aspects: father son and holy spirit.
