Double Square Chamber as Anecoic Space

DoubleSquare
I received an email a couple of years ago from a man in Italy who had read my first book Interference and had begun to study the Santa Maria della Pieve cathedral in the town of Arezzo, Italy. He was preparing a presentation about the cathedral for an architectural seminar in that town and, in the process, discovered numerous golden ratios in the church's facade of arches. Well, this inspired me to find the floor plan and see what else I could find. Read More...

The Golden Ratio in a Double Square

GRDoubleSquare
The double square of the King's chamber is found in many ancient temples and medieval cathedrals across Europe. It creates an ideal acoustical chamber for a stone enclosure as it distributes sound evenly without echo. Read More...

Symbolism of Rosslyn Chapel's Ceiling

Ceiling
Here is a photo I took of the choir loft ceiling of 15th-century Rosslyn chapel near Edinburgh, Scotland. Notice the progression from right to left (west to east) of pentagram stars, 5-petal roses and what could be resonant cymatic patterns carved into the stone ceiling. It seems to be a clue that Rosslyn is symbolic of the pentacle star or rose orbital pattern of Venus and that it follows the same laws of resonance as a plate of sand vibrated by a musical tone.

Newgrange Incubation

Newgrange
The chamber inside the 5,500 year-old temple at Newgrange in Ireland is tuned to 110Hz - the same resonant frequency found in the Hypogeum in Malta. In an earlier post, I discussed a UCLA study proving this frequency actually disables the left-brain language center and activates right-brain emotions (see link in comments). Read More...

Golden Enneagram in Rosslyn Chapel

EnneagramRosslyn
The Golden Enneagram can now be dropped into the Venus Blueprint and overlaid onto the floor plan of 15th century Rosslyn chapel. Altogether, this reveals a Cosmic "egg and yolk" symbolism for William St. Clair's temple to Venus (the Hebrew goddess Asherah). But it is more than purely symbolic. Read More...

The Schumann Resonances

In earlier posts, I discussed the UCLA study that found 110Hz switches on the right brain. This can be shown to be directly related to the Schumann Earth resonance. Read More...

Archaeomusicology of the Ancient Near East

Archaeo
The field of archaeomusicology is the study of music in ancient cultures. Recent discoveries in this field have found that the mythology of ancient Mesopotamia is readable as tonal allegory when its numerology is decoded as tuning theory.

The Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

Hal
The 6,000-year-old Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni in southern Malta is a 500-square-meter, three-level underground temple complex carved out of solid limestone. It exhibits a special psychoacoustical effect capable of altering consciousness. Read More...

The Hebrew Psychoacoustical Temple Template

Psycho
The Hebrew double-square temple design of Solomon’s Temple has been replicated around the world from famous European chapels and cathedrals to Masonic lodges and Mormon temples in America. Representing an ancient psychoacoustical technology capable of altering human consciousness, this “temple template” can entrain the human body and brain when activated with special music. Not surprisingly, it is based on proportions related to the golden ratio or “divine proportion.” Read More...

Rosslyn Cube Symbolism

Cubes
Here is a photograph I took in Scotland's 15th-century Rosslyn chapel of one of the "musical cubes" carved into the top of the central Shekinah pillar. As you can see, it is a golden cube cut to the golden ratio. Read More...

Psychoacoustics of the Sistine Chapel

Sistine
Like many other sacred spaces, the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican was designed to resonate the brain and induce altered states during chant. This psychoacoustical space even has the power to supercharge entheogenic communion. Read More...

Psychoacoustics of the Texas Capitol

Texas
The Texas Capitol rotunda is typical of many American Capitol buildings. It is modeled after the Vedic stupa (and Venus Blueprint) which incorporates a World Egg dome topped with a harmika and Cosmic Tree steeple. Read More...

Vadhathika Cave Acoustics

Cave
The 2000 year-old Vadhathika cave of the Barabar Hills, Bharat(India) is an excellent example of a chamber tuned to have a psychoacoustical effect. Read More...

The Rosslyn Motet

Motet
This is a picture I took of famed Scottish composer Stuart Mitchell directing an ensemble in rehearsal of The Rosslyn Motet inside Rosslyn chapel on April 2011. Written by Stuart, the 15th-century motet is based on a melody he and his father Tommy decoded from cymatic patterns carved into the chapel's arches. Read More...
