Ancient Knowledge of Solar Geometry
Did ancient man have knowledge of the same geometries, proportions and relationships
that are found in the design of the solar system? We may never know for certain, but
ancient architecture and artifacts seem to use these geometries again and again.
Take a look and see what you think.
In "The Secrets of the Great Pyramid" by Peter Tompkins, the
Babylonian ziggurat is described as having a rectangular top step whose sides averaged
2.5833. Although not identified as such in the book, this is the distance of Earth from the Sun when Mercury's mean distance is
measured as 1. Did the Babylonians have a precise insight into the construction of
our solar system, or is this just a coincidence?
The ziggurat is also noted to use important angles such as Ö5 - 1, or,
1.236, which is generally thought to represent
the perfect number series derived from 1+2+3=6 and 1*2*3=6.
In Solar Geometry, we
find that Earth ¾ * ( Ö1 + Ö2
+ Ö3 + Ö6 ) = Jupiter..
Ö5 - 1 is also a variation on the derivation of
phi (½ * ( Ö5 + 1 )), used in Solar Geometry in
defining the distance of the Earth.
The pyramids of Egypt embody pi and phi in their dimensions as well as many ratios
found between the Earth and Sun. Click HERE
