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.

Cymatics and Biology

SeaBiscuit
Ancient Vedic priests may have seen the cosmos and all life in it something like this photo - a process of harmonic tuning. Here we see a similarity between the color patterning of a square sea star and a sand-covered Chladni plate vibrated at a specific frequency. 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 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...

Psychoactive Geometry

The main psychoactive geometry within the Venus Blueprint design appears to be the Meru pyramid (based on the Egyptian triangle). This particular shape has been experimentally proven to interact with the electromagnetic current in the atmosphere and act as a capacitor or battery to collect and store electrostatic energy.
