Sun metrics & earth-based measures
Feb 28, 2006 05:47 PM
Two different topics have been brought up simultaneously. One is
similarities in Egyptian measures (Great Pyramid) and the oldest
pyramid center in Mexico (Teotihuacan). The other is the diameter
and distance of the sun from earth in ancient and contemporary
Correspondences between many ancient measuring systems is explained
by geodetic (earth-based) measures. Geometry literally means earth
measure ("geo" for earth and "metria" for measure) Measures of the
earth were central in key ancient centers of learning.
The Egyptians used several sets of measures for various purposes, so
that cubits had different values in different contexts. The
Phoenicians borrowed the Egyptian counting and measuring systems for
trade throughout the Mediterranean. The European metric system was
borrowed from the Egyptians, but does not contain the full array of
values the Egyptians anciently used.
The inner planets of the solar system approximate the Fibonnaci
sequence, which, in turn, approxmates phi ratios. Once an earth-
based measure was established, ratios could be applied with
considerable accuracy. The Pythagorean Lambdoma is a simple matrix
that easily calculates ratios of octaves used as the basis of
Western music and can be applied to numerous natural systems.
I don't know the basis of the modern mile, and I've never paid much
attention to it since it was very likely divorced from the natural
relationships that the ancients used. I suspect that many
mathematical keys were protected in the mystery schools far longer
than generally suspected.
Zero emerged from the Vedic temples around 1000 CE then spread
through the Middle East and into Europe. Zero was invented in
ancient Mexico circa 300 BCE where it was used with the same dot-bar
numbering system used in the Vedic temples.
The Maya were a pantribal order of scholars who calculated the
calendar and built pyramids, similar to the mystery schools in the
Egypt and Greece. The Maya were not a tribe. There are more than
35 native tribes in Guatemala, but only one pan-tribal order of Maya
that have managed survive everything history could throw at them.
I'll be happy to look up the geodetic correspondences to some of the
ancient measuring systems if anyone is interested. I strongly
recommend the book I mentioned last week, "Civilization One." It
can be purchased through Amazon.com.
