I received this graphic from Bob Schlenker depicting the twelve months of the Gregorian calendar as a twelve-tone scale in an octave. Read More...

Mt. Meru as Symbol for Fibonacci Series

FibMeru
The sacred mountain of the Rig-Veda is named Mount Meru. According to the ancient Vedic grammarian Pingala in his Art of Prosody, this "Mountain of Cadence" is a symbol for the sum of diagonals equivalent to what we now call the Fibonacci Series. Read More...

Stupa Bell Symbolism

Bell
The earliest archaeological evidence of bells date from 3rd millennium BC, and is traced back to the Yangshao culture of Neolithic China. Placed auspiciously in temples and palaces, bells were most likely modeled after the cosmological model of the Vedic stupa (temple). Read More...

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...

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...

13, Ophiuchus, Fibonacci

Orphiuchus
In 2013, one in 20 people will be born under the 13th zodiacal constellation of Ophiuchus, the serpent handler. The association between serpents and the number 13 present in the resonance cycles of the Moon and Venus is no coincidence. Read More...

13 Proportion in Earth-Moon-Venus Triad

Triad
This is the 13th Full Moon before 2013, as seen at dawn above the Gore range in the Rockies. It reminds me of an interesting 13 resonance between the Moon and Venus. Read More...

Musical Shape of the Universe

Poincare
According to the COBE and WMAP studies of microwave background radiation in space, the universe may be shaped like a Poincare spherical dodecahedron.* These studies propose that we are all living inside a kind of finite resonating Cosmic Egg, just as the ancient Vedics and Greeks believed thousands of years ago.

Harmonic Resonance and Damping

Resonance
For today, I thought I would share a very mysterious relationship between the number 12 and the golden mean. Read More...

The Golden Enneagram

Enneagram
As follow-on to my post on the Venus Comb and the Purple Ratio (link in comments), here is an illustration of my slightly modified version of the Fourth Way Gurdjieff Enneagram. Read More...

The Harmonic Theory of Phoenician Purple

Purple
The rare Murex sea snail, also called the "Venus Comb," was the prime source for the Tyrian purple dye traded by the ancient Phoenicians. The name Phoenician or Phoenix actually means purple. Read More...

Pentagonal Recursion to the Golden Ratio

Pentagonal
"My God, it's full of stars." - Dave Bowman, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Why exactly are there so many pentagram stars in our culture and what do they really mean?

Religion, Numerology and Harmonics

Numerology
Musical scales and proportions were central to ancient religion, including the Bible. According to Brooklin College Professor Emeritus and archeomusicologist Ernest G. McClain, such symbolisms are descended from the harmonic astronomy of the Babylonians and tonal numerology of the Rig-Veda. Read More...

Vajra and Harmonic Patterning

Patterning
A "vajra" is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond. The ritual object of two vajras (left figure) found in India is called a double vajra or "Visvavajra." To Hindus, it symbolizes a diamond (that can cut anything but cannot be cut itself) and a thunderbolt (an irresistible force).

Hexagon-Pentagon Geometry in Tryptophan

Tryptophan
Resonant patterning is a unifying principle behind the use of both acoustics and entheogens in ancient temples. Read More...

Evolution of the Human Body in Harmonic Lattice

Lattice
Stone temples built according to human proportions, which is to say the proportions of our solar system, will resonate sympathetically with the body and brain. Indeed, all living things evolve within a harmonically resonating lattice, which ancient peoples appear to have understood quite well. Read More...

Harmonic Geometry of the Head

Head
The Venus Blueprint appears more and more like a universal resonance pattern in nature. For instance, the human head follows a pentagonal egg pattern similar to the orbital geometry of Venus. Read More...

Key Harmonic Intervals in the Human Body

Intervals
The original inspiration behind this book was my interest in finding the source for the musical cosmology behind the Rig-Veda. One area I examined was the musical structure of the body which the Greeks called Musica Humana. Read More...

Venusian Goddess Symbolism

VenusSymbolisms
The two astrological houses of Venus were harmonic symbols of Venus derived from her pentagonal orbital geometry. Read More...

The Harmonic Science of Vedic Cosmology

VedicCosmology
My interest in Venus did not begin with the study of astronomy, mythology, symbolism or temple acoustics. It began with the study of harmonics and vibratory resonance patterns, particularly as they appear in plants and animals. Read More...
