Sorry, my mistake, I thought I was posting to a thread concerning sacred numbers.

I'm having great difficulty divorcing 'sacred' from the concept of 'sacred number'! I also have difficulty extracting the concept of 'sacred number' from a religious context.

It appears to have a flattened face (preventing slipping when spinning?) that might fit onto an attachment at the centre of a wheel driven by another (geared?) having an off-centre rod to convert lateral motion to circular. The AEs reciprocating engine!

Hi Jim My apologies for the delay, but I've been away. The 1920 units is simply an assumption or approximation. I suggest that the inner face of the lintels might be 60 diametric units, and if fashioned from a block giving a depth of some 21 units would have to be about 64 x 22 in size. Were this so, the outer arc would be 64 units, and 64 x 30 = 1920 units (120MY). the perimeter of the Aub

Hi Dave I haven't been in touch with Dr. Mackie for years, and he didn't reply to my last email. So, he may have changed it. I'm fairly sure he's retired from work, and maybe he's also retired from involvement in the Thom debate. I wouldn't blame him. They really put him through it! Cheers Geoff

Hi all I’ve just had the first of a two-part paper published in Northern Earth (issue 153) under the title ‘An alternative route to the megalithic yard’. This argues that Alexander Thom was essentially correct, but may not have fully cracked the megalithic code as Robin Heath declares. It should go without saying that the megalith builders must have appreciated that a circle with a diameter

To continue from where I was so rudely but predictably interrupted! The search for unit and measure at G1 is viewed by many with a jaundiced eye prompted mainly, no doubt, by the work of Piazzi Smyth and the archaeological labelling of investigators as pyramidiots. However, the masons had to cut the stones to some tricky angles, so were presumably working from patterns and measure. But did the

I’m not convinced about the presence of Imperial feet or the metric system at Giza, nor the speed of light being encapsulated in the dimensions, nor do I believe that the AEs were necessarily tenth-of-an-inch perfect in executing their plans, but I do look at the numerical models that appear here from time to time. I was struck by DUNE’s last post on The Giza Plan, and was intrigued by the equila

From the dimensions I’ve seen given (61 cm) I figured that the circle on which the design is based might have been 42 digits in diameter with six arcs of 22 digits, making the inner ring of the disc 31.5 digits in diameter (99 on the circumference). I’m assuming that the inner boss is maybe 4.5 digits (one seventh of the diameter) and the rim is half a digit wide (adding a digit to the dimensions

As a postscript, the archaeologists did catch on to the potential presence of a foot of 13.2 inches, and measured a number of key buildings at Mohenjo-daro and Harappa to check this out. The following is an extract from my book on stone circle design and measurement. “Over 150 checks were made of buildings at both Harappā and Mohenjo-daro, which confirmed the presence of the foot and cubit mea

It’s done, and one grouse I have is that the EU didn’t really help at all. It wasn’t set up to react quickly enough to a rapidly developing situation in order to allay the fears of the British public. I also felt that the reaction of both France and Germany was, “we’re better off without them.” I truly think it was the EU that was saying “sod it, and sod them”, and as such let down all those

If I'm following you and carol, flipping to get IHS would put the 's' the wrong way round, wouldn't it? However, though indistinct, wouldn't the 'm' then become a 'w'? If so, in context, couldn't this be an omega, as in alpha to omega, 'beginning and end'? Just a thought.

We’ve had a similar thing with the Union Jack, usage banned because it’s employed as an emblem and rallying call by some extreme right-wing nationalist groups. Note, however, that the Union Jack is formed by superimposing the national flags of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. So, we should logically remove the red cross of England from the Union Jack, because it’s such a symbol of race

I consider myself fairly well informed, but I know in my heart that I’m not. The public is certainly not party to what’s going on behind the scenes at the European parliament, and without that knowledge how can anyone be expected to make an informed decisi

Eddie Wise words on the issue of BRexit, but it’s the manner of the Obama intervention that’s raised eyebrows and hackles. If it’s not enough that European nations declare they’ll punish us if we leave the EU, now the US is doing the same! Are we back in the schoolyard? Bear in mind that half the population of the UK is terrified of the consequences of leaving the EU, which could be disastr

What’s all this about? BBC: Obama Takes Sides The UK is to have a referendum in June to decide whether or not to stay in the European Union (EU). Half the UK doesn’t like having Brussels (EU) over-interfere in national affairs - particularly telling member states what they must do with their borders - and then in steps the US and does the same, but with added threats!
