My Latest Updates Re: The Miami Circle

The Bimini Shark Mound, on North Bimini Island in The Bahamas, has been decoded via 'archaeocryptography', by Carl P. Munck, Sr. Munck is the pioneer in archaeocryptography. He re-discovered a very ancient "geo-math matrix" ... apparently a very advanced network of ancient sites ... including pyramids, stone circles, mounds, and other earthworks. These sites/structures are evidently precisely located, and are closely inter-related to one another through the actual *numbers* involved in their exact latitudes and longitudes ... the actual degrees, minutes, and precise fractions of arc-seconds. Remarkably, to say the least, this "mathematical precision" is being revealed as a self-evident empirical fact ... in case after case, site after site, and is supported by the latest satellite- accurate maps available ... including the (revised) 1983 North American Datum USGS topo maps of the 7.5-minute Series.

Bimini Shark Mound

Following are Carl Munck's figures (1992) for The Bimini Shark Mound, in terms of its latitude/longitude. Bear in mind, for those readers new to this material, that one of Munck's primary discoveries is a prime meridian, keying the longitudes in this 'matrix', running through the center of The Great Pyramid of Giza. The longitude variance between this Giza prime meridian and the Greenwich meridian, is exactly 31 deg 08 min 0.8 sec.

Grid LONG 110 (deg) X 22 (min) X 53.55371901 (sec) W.Giza = 129600 W.Giza

W.Greenwich 79 deg 14 min 52.75371901 sec

Notice the number 129600 ... this is the Square of 360, and 360 is 'our' conventional number of degrees-of-arc on one circumference.

Grid LAT 25 (deg) X 44 (min) X 56.25403807 (sec) North = 61879.44187 North

Notice that the number 61879.44187 is exactly equal to ... 1080 X Radian (deg). The Radian (deg) is the number of arc-degrees ( 57.29577951) equal to the (straight-line) radius distance of the same given circle or sphere ... assuming 360 arc-degrees on one circumference. Notice that the number 1080 "happens to be" exactly 3 times 360.

Grid POINT Value 129600 / 61879.44187 = 2.094395103

Notice that 2.094395103 is precisely 2/3rds of the Pi constant ... 2.094395103 = (2Pi / 3)

Indeed, this re-discovered planetary 'matrix' is mathematically based, on a circumference of 360 degrees, The Radian (deg), and the Pi constant.

Ties to The Miami Circle

In January of 1999, I received an email from Richard C.Hoagland, asking me if I had any info (data) on The Miami Circle. This was a pleasant surprise, because I had sent him some emails in late 1998 regarding this same site, although at that time I had only just ordered the USGS topo map ( Miami Quadrangle, 7.5-minute Series), because I intuitively felt that this structure would likely be in Munck's re-discovered matrix.

On Feb.5th, 1999, Richard Hoagland gave me GPS readings over the phone, which he had taken himself. As it turns out, these GPS readings appear to be accurate to within 2 to 3 Feet, of my own assessment to-date of matrix-valid coordinates for The Miami Circle (Morton, 1999). Following are the matrix- valid figures from my assessment to-date See mat_38.htm Matrix Message #38.

Grid LONG 111 (deg) X 19 (min) X 19.83320064 (sec) W.Giza = 41828.22014 W.Giza

W.Greenwich 80 deg 11 min 19.03320064 sec

Grid LAT 25 (deg) X 46 (min) X 9.391304348 (sec) North = 10800 North Grid POINT Value 41828.22014 / 10800 = 3.872983346

Notice that this Grid POINT Value is the Square Root of 15. Double the Square Root of 15 is the Square Root of 60, and the number 60 is 'our' number for time *and* arc-distance in terms of seconds in a minute. Also, of course, minutes in an hour and minutes in an arc-degree See my article, " mat_6.htm Stonehenge ... Circular Data Base" The number 6 ... a decimal harmonic of 60 ... is the factor which, when multiplied by 60 ... gives 360, 'our' number of arc-degrees on one circumference.

In my research as part of my assessment of The Miami Circle, I found that I disagree with Carl Munck regarding the apparent Grid LONG and Grid LAT of Cahokia Woodhenge # 2 ( a circular structure, with postholes in the ground). I find its Grid LONG to be 41828.22014 W.Giza ... identical to the Grid LONG of The Miami Circle. This finding, of course, is significant in terms of such precisely matching numbers.

Grid LONG 121 (deg) X 12 (min) X 28.80731415 (sec) W.Giza = 41828.22014 W.Giza

I find its Grid LAT to be 54000 North ... exactly 5 times 10800; and recall that 10800 is The Miami Circle Grid LAT.

Grid LAT 38 (deg) X 39 (min) X 36.43724696 (sec) North = 54000 North

Grid POINT Value 54000 / 41828.22014 = 1.290994449

Notice that if we divide this Grid POINT Value into the Pi constant, we get the Grid POINT Value of Stonehenge (Munck, 1991) ...

3.141592654 / 1.290994449 = 2.433467206

My assessment also shows that the Grid POINT Value of The Miami Circle is *exactly* 3 times the Grid POINT Value of Cahokia Woodhenge # 2.

Now ; if we divide 54000 by the Grid LAT of Stonehenge ...

54000 / 21600 = 2.5

The number 2.5 is the Grid POINT Value of England's Woodhenge (Munck, 1998) ... located not that many miles to the east of Stonehenge. England's Woodhenge has 60 postholes on its outer ring. Its Grid LAT is 10800 ... *identical* to the Grid LAT of The Miami Circle.

Grid LAT 51 (deg) X 11 (min) X 19.2513369 (sec) North = 10800 North

Grid LONG 32 (deg) X 55 (min) X 2.454545455 (sec) W.Giza = 4320 W.Giza BR> W.Greenwich 01 deg 47 min 1.654545455 sec

Grid POINT Value 10800 / 4320 = 2.5

"Go Low" Earth Circle in Germany

Munck has also found the Grid LAT for a large earth-circle near Bonn, Germany. As to why it's called "Go Low", I don't know, but it's Grid LAT is exactly 27000 North, or one-half the 54000 Grid LAT I'm finding for Cahokia Woodhenge # 2.

Grid LAT 50 (deg) X 20 (min) X 27.00000 (sec) North = 27000 North

Carl Munck also writes that this structure has 2 circles. The outer circle is 656 Feet in diameter, and the inner circle is 328 Feet in diameter ... for an exact 2 to 1 ratio ... just like 54000 to 27000. Additionally, I propose that 328 is an approximation ... either an intended approximation by the designer/builder, which is very doubtful, or simply a typical approximation by the archaeologist(s) who reported on the site. The number 328 is very close to 328.280635, a decimal harmonic of the Square of The Radian (deg) ... 3282.80635 square degrees. It also follows, then, that 656 is an approximation of 656.56127 ... which is not only 1/5th of the Square of The Radian (deg), but is the Grid POINT Value of 'The Face' on Mars at Cydonia (Munck, 1991).

The Panther Mound in The Everglades

Another discovery by Carl Munck involves the Panther Mound in the Florida Everglades. He found an official USGS 7.5-minute topographical map ... named "Panther Mound" Quadrangle. This feline effigy has a Grid POINT Value (Munck, 1994) of precisely 30Pi ... 94.24777961 ... which is an exact match of the azimuth- of-orientation, in arc-degrees from True North, of The Great Sphinx of Giza (Munck, 1992). Notice the 'feline' association to The Great Sphinx. Here are Munck's figures for The Panther Mound ...

Grid LONG 111 (deg) X 53 (min) X 47.68624548 (sec) W.Giza = 280538.1822 W.Giza

W.Greenwich 80 deg 45 min 46.88624548 sec

Grid LAT 25 (deg) X 34 (min) X 3.501885366 (sec) North = 2976.602561 North

Grid POINT Value 280538.1822 / 2976.602561 = 94.24777961

Munck also notes the length of this effigy mound as 5400 Feet. The number 5400 is the Grid POINT Value of The Great Sphinx of Giza (Munck, 1991) !! Here we also have a decimal harmonic reference to the number 54000. The Panther Mound can only be recognized from the air ... overhead. Of course, the USGS topo maps are compiled from overhead photographs.

The Newark, Ohio Earthworks Tie-In ...

The number 54000 is also found through Munck's archaeocryptography work on the earthworks at Newark, Ohio. His Grid POINT Values for The Octagon Circle and for The Observatory Circle, are ... 243.3467206 and 91.18906529 ... respectively. He multiplies those numbers, with the Grid POINT Value of Stonehenge ... 243.3467206 X 91.18906529 X 2.433467206 ... = 54000, again.

Panther Mound Times The Miami Circle

If we multiply the Grid POINT Values of Panther Mound and The Miami Circle ... 94.24777961 X 3.872983346 = 365.0200809 The number 365.0200809 is what Munck calls the "Ancient Solar Year" in Days. He has found this number (and its decimal harmonics) in many instances throughout his research. I have found a decimal harmonic of this number ... as the Grid POINT Value of Edward Leedskalnin's Coral Castle, near Homestead, Florida. Here are my figures for Coral Castle ...

Grid LAT 25 (deg) X 29 (min) X 58.80922897 (sec) North = 42636.691 North

Grid LONG 111 (deg) X 34 (min) X 41.23807207 (sec) W.Giza = 155632.484 W.Giza

W.Greenwich 80 deg 26 min 40.43807207 sec

Grid POINT Value 155632.484 / 42636.691 = 3.650200809

This Grid POINT Value is a decimal harmonic of the "Ancient Solar Year", in Days (Munck, 1992). One possibility as to "when" our solar year was 365.0200809 Days, is that this figure could be the actual length of the solar year at the time this particular planetary matrix was "dedicated". Munck agrees that this is a good possibility. This "dedication" could have taken place after the land had settled, after the cataclysmic event known as The Great Deluge (see Zecharia Sitchin's research on this, in his series of books called "The Earth Chronicles"). I think it is also possible that this "Ancient Solar Year" figure could be the actual length of the solar year just-prior-to (or, at-the-time-of) The Great Deluge.

Notice that the Grid POINT Value of The Octagon Circle (Munck), 243.3467206, is a decimal harmonic of Stonehenge's Grid POINT Value of 2.433467206. Now ... let's multiply the grid POINT Values of Panther Mound, Bimini Shark Mound, and The Miami Circle ...

94.24777961 X 2.094395102 X 3.872983346 ... = 764.4962695

Divide this figure by Pi ...

764.4962695 / 3.141592654 = 243.3467206

... Grid POINT Value of The Octagon Circle, again ! Recall, now, that Stonehenge's Grid POINT Value, multiplied by my newfound Grid POINT Value for Cahokia Woodhenge # 2 ... equals Pi ...

2.433467206 X 1.290994449 = 3.141592654

In Carl Munck's newsletter of June/July 1995, he shows very conclusively that the azimuth-of-orientation of Hoosick Mound, in Eastern New York State, is exactly 320.2314485 arc-degrees from True North. When that figure is divided- by 1.290994449 ...

320.2314485 / 1.290994449 = 248.0502134

We get the Grid POINT Value of The Great Pyramid of Giza. And that figure is the Cube of 2Pi.

A Tie to Granite Hill, near Gettysburg, PA

... If you look on the Gettysburg (PA) Quadrangle ... official USGS Topographical Map, 7.5-minute Series, you'll see a conical hill labeled "Granite Hill" ... just on the south side of Route 30, a few miles East of Gettysburg, PA. I think this "hill" is a legitimate part of this matrix. My Grid POINT Value for it is ... 8.111557352 ... which is the multiplied product of The Miami Circle Grid POINT Value and Bimini Shark Mound Grid POINT Value ...

3.872963346 X 2.094395102 = 8.111557352

Granite Hill's numbers are definitely matrix-valid. See my article on this,

Grid LAT 39 (deg) X 51 (min) X 36.19909502 (sec) North = 72000 North

Grid LONG 108 (deg) X 17 (min) X 4.834544659 (sec) W.Giza = 8876.223994 W.Giza

W.Greenwich 77 deg 09 min 4.034544659 sec

The number 72000 is exactly half of 144000 ... see my article, " mat_11.htm The King's Chamber and The Sarcophagus" ... I think the cubic volume ... in *regular inches*, not "pyramid inches", of the outer dimensions of The Sarcophagus in The King's Chamber (within The Great Pyramid) ... is 144,000 cubic inches. Please see that article. The number 8876.223994 is a decimal harmonic of the Square Root of the Volume of a Sphere ... using The Radian (deg) as the RADIUS of any given sphere (887.6223994).
