The sacred geometry of planet Earth
William B Stoecker: The idea that certaingeometric shapes possess some kind of power is very old, asis the idea that certain locations on the Earth are sacred or magical.
The elites often apply sacred geometry to architecture;America's capital was built in large part with this in mind, andthe most recent additions have included the WashingtonMonument, an obelisk built by the Freemasons, and thePentagon, commissioned by Freemason Franklin DelanoRoosevelt. But, over the years, a number of researchers andwriters have suggested that our entire planet contains a magical geometry which governs thelocation of sacred sites, and that this geometry may be hyper dimensional, and even that theentire universe was constructed in accordance with the laws of hyper dimensional geometry. Atthe same time, there is a very ancient belief that all of space is filled with an inexhaustible energy,spiritual in origin, called variously chi, ki, prana, kundalini, vril, odic force, or orgone, and that thisenergy may serve as a dynamic luminiferous aether, and may be the foundation of all other matter and energy. It has been suggested that this energy flows most strongly along certain pathson the Earth's surface, usually called ley lines.Many years ago, Ivan T. Sanderson suggested that our planet may be attempting to become acrystal. The force of gravity, of course, holds the planet in a roughly spherical shape, butSanderson suggested that some other force was trying to turn Earth into an enormous crystal,and that certain locations on our planet, regularly spaced, are prone to mysterious vanishings of ships and aircraft, and other paranormal phenomena. Researchers like Carl Munck described aglobal grid linking ancient sacred sites, and Hugh Harleston Jr. claimed that the ancient ruin of Teotihuacan in Mexico, with its Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon was built accordingto tetrahedral geometry, and he suspected that the entire universe was constructed according totetrahedral geometry.A tetrahedron is one of the five Platonic solids, and it is a three dimensional space bounded byfour triangular sides. In a regular tetrahedron the triangles are equilateral, and all of their anglesare sixty degrees each. A hexahedron has six sides; a regular hexahedron is a cube. Anoctahedron has eight sides, a dodecahedron has twelve, and an icosahedron has twenty. Thetetrahedron and icosahedron are most germane to this discussion. Buckminster Fuller based hisgeodesic domes on icosahedrons, which have triangular sides; in a regular icosahedron, as in aregular tetrahedron, the sides are all equilateral triangles.Bruce Cathie, a former airline pilot from New Zealand, developed some of these ideas into anoverall theory. He suggested that the Earth somehow contains or is trying to become a regular icosahedron, and that ancient sacred sites like Stonehenge and Teotihuacan are sited accordingto a "world grid" based on this. According to his theory major ley lines intersect at or near itsvertices, and he believed that ufos travel along the ley lines, which are separated from oneanother by thirty minutes of arc (one half a degree). Of course, this is counting even the minor leylines.In recent years, these ideas have been popularized and further developed by Richard Hoagland.Hoagland pointed out that if a regular tetrahedron of the right size existed witin a sphere like thespinning Earth, and one of its vertices were at the South Pole, the other three vertices would bespaced one hundred and twenty degrees apart some 19.47 degrees (an irrational number, likemost constants) north of the equator. He pointed out that major upwellings of energy seem tocluster within a degree or two of one of these locations, like the immense Hawaiian volcanoes onEarth, the Olympus Mons volcano (the highest and most massive mountain in the Solar System)the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, and the Dark Spot on Neptune. These may be north or south of the equator, depending on the planet.Hoagland also suggested that the current paradigm in physics, based on the twin pillars of
