648 ... A LIGHT-SPEED 'HARMONIC MULTIPLE'

As I've noted in other writings, 648 is mentioned a lot in the work of Bruce Cathie (see his book, "The Harmonic Conquest of Space").
The number 648 is exactly 4 times 162, and the number 162 is fundamentally important (see B. Cathie) as a "light-speed harmonic" ... that is, it now appears that 162,000 nautical miles per second is the maximum light-speed in 'empty space' .... before it is slowed-down by 'local' mass/gravity/atmosphere/electro-magnetism. When I say 'local', I mean rotating celestial bodies such as planets.

In terms of the geometry of architecture, and should I also say "the architecture of geometry" (?!), a rectangular structure has 4 sides and four 90-degree corners. Then, we notice it actually has 8 corner-points on the inside, and another 8 corner-points on the outside ... assuming the building 'has an interior'. Certainly, it has 8 corner-points. (Yes, I know ... let's acknowledge the floor and the ceiling ... in effect ; six sides of an "elongated cube" and 'hexagonal' geometry).

So; the first number to pop up when we see "rectangle", is 4 : 648 / 4 = 162 , as noted above.

If we divide 648 by 8 corner-points : 648 / 8 = 81 , we have the Square of 9.

The number nine is our 'highest' (max) integer, just as 162 is a decimal harmonic (base 10) of our max light-speed. What is the Einstein formula for 'Energy' (?) .... E = 'm' x ('c' Squared), where 'm' is mass and 'c' is light-speed.

What if we divide 162 by 9 (?) .... 162 / 9 = 18
....

and the Square of 18 is ... 324, which is "azimuth node" position number 18 on the 'Wheel of 20' (see work of Joe Mason) where the nodes are 18 degrees apart. What is 180 degrees from azimuth 324 (?) ... azimuth 144, and the number 144 is the gematrian number meaning "light". And, remember that 324 is exactly double 162.

The 90-degree angle is the "square angle". The number 90 is a decimal harmonic of 9 ... our max integer.

--- A Link To The Pentagon ---

Inside a pentagon, there are 5 angles of 72 degrees each. If we divide 72 by our max integer :
72 / 9 = 8

If we then divide *that* number into 648 :

648 / 8 = 81 ... the Square of our max integer.

Notice that the 8 : 9 ratio is identical to the 144 : 162 ratio.

I hope we are seeing, here, some numerical validity to relationships between max light-speed and rectangular and pentagonal geometry (and architecture).
