Rosslyn Chapel and "Dragon Mound"

                Rosslyn Chapel and "Dragon Mound"

 Less than one week ago, as I write this, I received an email from a
 contact in the Edinburgh area of Scotland, forwarding to me his own
 GPS readings from the 4 corners within Rosslyn Chapel.
 I then averaged his 4 readings from within the Chapel, to try to
 figure-out the apparently-intended Grid LAT, Grid LONG, and Grid
 POINT Value for Rosslyn Chapel. And; I can now report that my
 predicted values .. posted on The Internet about 2 months ago ..
 are "off" by about 550 feet in terms of longitude, and are "off" by about
 230 feet in terms of latitude. My prediction was based solely on 
 a combination of 2 online "map services" which each only gave a 
 very general indication as to where Rosslyn Chapel was located in the
 "town" of Roslin. Here are my "archaeo-sky matrix" figures for
 Rosslyn Chapel, based directly on the 4 GPS readings sent to me
 by my contact in Edinburgh :

 Grid LAT   55 (deg)  X  51 (min)  X  19.29274927 (sec)  North ..
 =  54116.16169  North.
 { Note: decimal harmonic of Grid POINT Value of The Washington Monument
   in Washington, D.C. (Morton, 1998) .. "5.411616169" }. 
 Grid LONG   34 (deg)  X  17 (min)  X  32.18644638 (sec)  W.Giza ..
 =  18603.76601  W.Giza.
 [ W.Greenwich  03 deg  09 min  31.38644638 sec ].
 Grid POINT Value   54116.16169 / 18603.76601  =  2.908882087

 The very ancient 'Dragon' tradition is still very much associated with
 the Scottish sovereignty, as written-about extensively by Laurence Gardner,
 in his 2 books, "Bloodline of The Holy Grail", and "Genesis of The Grail 
 I will now show how these ancient "archaeo-sky matrix" figures for Rosslyn
 Chapel, are intelligently correlated with very high precision .. to an 
 earthen effigy site that I now call "Dragon Mound". 

 The so-called "Alligator Mound" is located in Granville, Ohio, USA, 
 just several miles away from the major ancient earthworks of Newark, Ohio.
 In several emails, and also posted on The Internet on 2 websites, 
 I have described how I was influenced by Laurence Gardner's work,
 to notice the apparent "dorsal fin" depicted in a drawing of this effigy
 figure. The drawing I noticed was made by Carl Munck, who also self-
 published his archaeo-matrix figures for the site. The odd thing I noticed
 about the drawing, which I assume has been depicted in other drawings
 of this effigy mound, was the apparent "extra appendage" clearly protruding
 out from the dorsal side. A 5-legged alligator ?  Munck called it a 
 partly for the reason that alligators are not naturally found within many 
 hundreds of miles of Ohio.  But ... a 5-legged squirrel ?

 Then; a 'breakthrough' occurred when I found a decimal harmonic of
 the Grid POINT Value of the circa 2000 A.D. sky-position, relative to
 the ecliptic, of the star ALPHA DRACONIS (constellation of Draco).
 Where was this decimal harmonic ?  I found it to be the precise
 decimal-fractional number of latitude arc-seconds .. in the latitude of
 "Dragon Mound" itself !!!   
 The Grid LAT I found for "Dragon Mound" is ...
 40 (deg)  X  04 (min)  X  11.81810286 (sec)  North ..
 =  1890.896457  North.
 The precise decimal-fractional number of arc-seconds in that latitude ..
 is a decimal harmonic of .. "1.181810286" ... Grid POINT Value for the
 circa 2000 A.D. sky-position of ALPHA DRACONIS .. relative to the ecliptic.
 { }.
 If you go to that webpage, you will see the details and the simple math
 involved in finding the archaeo-sky matrix numbers for several prominent
 stars in our sky, including ALPHA DRACONIS. And you will see how
 these circa year-2000 star positions, relative to the ecliptic, are 
 *precisely* with structures on both Earth and Mars, in terms of exact 
 and longitude !!!   
 That prompted me to think of the 'Dragon' .. an extremely ancient emblem
 and symbol of both "kingship" and "enlightenment" .. a point that Gardner
 stresses in his recent work. Then .. it hit me. That effigy-mound in 
 Ohio, USA, is not a 5-legged alligator, nor a 5-legged squirrel .. but it is 
 4-legged 'Dragon' with a dorsal fin !!  In fact; would it not be appropriate 
 the creators of this effigy-mound to distinguish it somehow from most other
 creatures ? A dorsal fin is not part of the anatomy of most North American
 land animals that 'also' have prominent tails.  

 I will also give the Grid LONG of "Dragon Mound" here, because it ties-in
 very specifically to other items discussed later in this article.
 I agree with Munck's (1994) findings for the longitude :
 Grid LONG   113 (deg)  X  38 (min)  X  4.8035586 (sec)  W.Giza ..
 =  20626.48063  W.Giza.
 [ W.Greenwich  82 deg  30 min  4.0035586 sec ].
 Note :  "20626.48063" is a numerical match of the Generic Surface Area
 on a Hemisphere. This is found by using the standard math formula,
 letting The Radian (deg) serve as the numerical value for "given radius"
 of a generic spherical form ...
 2Pi  X  (57.29577951 X 57.29577951)  =  20626.48063 "Square arc-degrees".
 Yes ... this assumes the use of a 360 arc-degrees system !!
 And this reveals a level of knowledge and technical precision that is clearly
 "not supposed to exist" in the "Hopewell/Adena" culture.

 Grid POINT Value "Dragon Mound" .. 20626.48063 / 1890.896457 ...
 =  10.90830783

 Recall, from above, the Grid POINT Value for Rosslyn Chapel.
 How does it compare with the Grid POINT Value of "Dragon Mound" ?
 Take the ratio ...
 10.90830783 / 2.908882087  =  3.75
 Does that "mean" anything ?  Yes, it does, because I recognize "3.75"
 as the Grid POINT Value of 'Seip Mound' in Ohio, USA.
 Munck (1994) has decoded this one. Seip Mound is at the center of
 another major ancient earthworks complex in Ohio.
 Here are its archaeo-sky matrix figures :
 Grid LAT  39 (deg)  X  14 (min)  X  15.82417582 (sec)  North ..
 =  8640  North.
 Grid LONG  114 (deg)  X  21 (min)  X  13.53383459 (sec)  W.Giza ..
 =  32400  W.Giza.
 [ W.Greenwich  83 deg  13 min  12.73383459 sec ].
 Grid POINT Value "Seip Mound" ..  32400 / 8640  =  3.75
        How The Radian (deg) is Calculated

 This is 'old hat' only for some. I want to review this,
 not only because it is so basic to our geometric system,
 but also because it is such an integral part of what's coming-up
 in this article.
 There is both a "radian" as an angle, and The Radian (deg).
 The "radian" as an angle ... is the angle formed, regardless of the
 number of arc-degrees assigned to one complete circumference,
 when you take the radius (straight-line) of a given circle/sphere
 and you then transpose it as an arc ... a curved-line ... as part
 of the circumference of that same circle/sphere. Visualize taking
 the straight-line radius of a circle, and then "snapping it into place"
 as a curved-line ... as a "replacement-segment" for part of the
 circumference of that circle .. starting at due north and going
 clockwise. Visualize that segment you just "snapped-in" as
 now appearing "seamless" with the rest of the circumference.
 Got it ?  OK ... that "curved-segment" is now the arc of the
 angle you just formed from the center of the circle. 
 That segment of arc is called "one radian".
 That *angle* is a constant .. no matter what the 'number
 of degrees' assigned to the circumference. 

 Now .. as for "The Radian (deg)".
 This is a *numerical value* for that "one radian". 
 And, it is a function of the number of arc-degrees
 you *are using* for one complete circumference.
 Our conventional number for that parameter is "360".
 The Radian (deg) is calculated by dividing the 'number' of arc-degrees
 on one complete circumference, by the constant of "2Pi".
 360 / 2Pi  =  57.29577951 (deg).
 And this assumes a relatively-precise Pi constant, too !!
 This little lesson, above, shows you that "2Pi" is an important constant.

                            Relating "2Pi" to ...
        Seip Mound, "Dragon Mound", and Rosslyn Chapel

 Note: "2Pi"  =  6.283185307 .. yes; we're using a relatively-precise value.

 6.283185307 X 3.75  =  23.5619449

 23.5619449 / 10.90830783  =  2.16

 2.16 X 2.908882087  =  6.283185307

 Now that's a nice "circle" of sorts, there.  
 Do you see the precise correlation ?
 I'd say that's obviously way-beyond "random coincidence".  

            The Church at Rennes-le-Chateau

 Not only is "2Pi" an important constant .. it is also .. the Grid POINT 
 of the Church at Rennes-le-Chateau (Morton, 1998) !!!
 I've had the archaeo-sky matrix figures for the Church at
 Rennes-le-Chateau posted on The Internet since mid-1998. 
 Here they are, again ...
 Grid LAT  42 (deg)  X  55 (min)  X  44.88311688 (sec)  North ..
 =  103680  North.
 Note :  "103680" is numerically equal to 4 Earth precession cycles in years 
 25920 X 4  =  103680.
 Grid LONG  28 (deg)  X  52 (min)  X  11.33323111 (sec)  W.Giza ..
 =  16501.1845  W.Giza.
 Note :  "16501.1845" is numerically equal to 288 Radians (deg),
 and "288" is an important gematrian number.
 [ E.Greenwich  02 deg  15 min  49.46676889 sec ].
 Grid POINT Value "Church at Rennes-le-Chateau" .. 
 103680 / 16501.1845  =  6.283185307

            Must Mention Connection to 'The White House' 

 I have found (Morton, 1998) the Grid LAT of The White House
 in Washington, D.C. to be .. 103680  North ..
 =  38 (deg)  X  53 (min)  X  51.4796425 (sec)  North.

 This is an amazing correlative match, itself, with the Grid LAT
 of the Church at Rennes-le-Chateau, but it's all the more amazing
 when you recall the Grid LAT of Rosslyn Chapel from earlier in this article.
 That Grid LAT .. "54116.16169  North" .. is a decimal harmonic numerical
 match of the Grid POINT Value (Morton, 1998) of The Washington Monument
 (5.411616169) in Washington, D.C.  
 George Washington, of course, was a Freemason.
 He laid the foundation stone for The White House and the cornerstone
 for The U.S. Capitol Building. He laid the foundation stone for The White
 House on October 13th, 1792 .. anniversary of the 'crucifixion' of
 the last Grand Master of The Knights Templar, Jacques de Molay,
 on Friday the 13th of October, 1307.

          The Washington Monument ..  
 Grid LAT  38 (deg)  X  53 (min)  X  21.59494661 (sec)  North ..
 =  43492.22248  North.
 Grid LONG  108 (deg)  X  10 (min)  X  7.441506403 (sec)  W.Giza ..
 =  8036.826915  W.Giza.
 [ W.Greenwich  77 deg  02 min  6.641506403 sec ]
 Grid POINT Value .. 43492.22248 / 8036.826915  =  5.411616169
 NOTE:  the precise decimal-fractional number of W.Giza longitude 
 arc-seconds .. "7.441506403" ... aside from being a decimal harmonic 
 numerical match of the actual Area of the Sarsen Circle of Stonehenge 
 (Munck, 1992) in regular ("British") Square Feet ... 7441.506403 ...
 "7.441506403" is a flat-out numerical match of the Grid POINT Value
 of the circa year-2000 sky-position, relative to the ecliptic, of the star
 BETELGEUSE in the Orion constellation (Morton, 1999).
 Not only that ... "7.441506403" is the *multiplied product* of the Grid
 POINT Value of the circa year-2000 sky-position, relative to the ecliptic,
 of the star SIRIUS  .. times the Pi constant !!!
 7.441506403  =  3.141592654 X 2.368705056

                  The King's Chamber 
          Within The Great Pyramid of Giza

 We are dealing with evidence of "kingship" and "enlightenment", here,
 as Laurence Gardner would refer to the connotations of the 'Dragon'
 symbol/emblem. This has to do with the encoding of advanced ancient
 knowledge .. to preserve it for posterity. We are now decoding it.
 I found, through study of a book entitled "The Great Pyramid Decoded",
 by E.Raymond Capt, that the precise length and width of "The King's Chamber"
 in regular ("British") inches and feet ... encodes some of this advanced
 ancient knowledge. Capt wrote about the dimensions of The Great Pyramid
 in terms of "pyramid inches" .. based on the research of people such as
 Piazzi Smythe and others in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
 I found that the designers/builders of The Great Pyramid were very familiar 
 with the 360 arc-degrees system, and with The Radian (deg) of 57.29577951,
 as well as with a relatively-precise Pi constant. 
 My proposed true length for The Royal Cubit is ... 20.62648063 regular
 ("British") inches .. and I have had that posted on The Internet since
 mid-1998. I've also proposed that the precise *intended* width of "The King's
 Chamber" is exactly 10 Royal Cubits .. 206.2648063 regular ("British") 
 and that the precise *intended* length of "The King's Chamber" is exactly
 20 Royal cubits .. 412.5296125 regular ("British") inches.
 Notice the number of regular ("British") feet for the length of "The King's
 Chamber" ... 412.5296125 / 12  =  34.37746771 regular Feet.
 That figure is a decimal harmonic numerical match of the polar radius
 of Earth in nautical miles .. 3437.746771
 Again ... the importance of "2Pi" comes in .. 21,600 / 2Pi  =  3437.746771
 nautical miles, polar radius of Earth.

 Recall, from earlier in this article, the Grid LONG of "Dragon Mound" ..
 20626.48063  W.Giza.  There you are .. another decimal harmonic
 numerical match .. this time with the precise width of "The King's Chamber"
 in regular inches, as well as with the number of regular inches in one true
 Royal Cubit, and ALSO with the side-length of "Miami Square" in
 Miami, Florida ... in terms of regular Feet (Morton, 1999) !!!   

 Recall, now, the number of arc-seconds in the latitude of "Dragon Mound" ..
 11.81810286 .. and I will now multiply that figure by the Grid POINT Value
 of Rosslyn Chapel ... 
 11.81810286 X 2.908882087  =  34.37746771 ... a flat-out numerical match
 of the length, in regular Feet, of "The King's Chamber" in The Great Pyramid
 of Giza !!!    
                  Some Cross-Referencing

 I do want to point-out a visual metaphor for the Cross symbol.
 You can see it as a right-angled intersection .. latitude crossing
 with longitude. If you visualize the intersection of Earth's current
 *true* prime meridian with the equator .. the intersect-point would
 be very close to Lake Victoria in Africa. This is near the area where
 "the mitochondrial Eve" was located, which refers to Enki and
 Ninhursag .. the genetic scientists who have been involved in the
 "kingship" bloodlines, and who also were the "creators" of the 
 worker-slave hybrids some 250,000 years ago in that part of 
 what is today Africa. { See works of Zecharia Sitchin, and
 Neil Freer }.       
                Rennes LAT and Rosslyn LAT .. and .. 

 Recall the Grid LATs of the Church at Rennes-le-Chateau
 and of Rosslyn Chapel.  Notice their ratio ...
 103680 / 54116.16169  =  18.90896457 / (Pi Squared).
 Recall the "1890.896457 North" Grid LAT of "Dragon Mound".
 Note the precise resonance with the square of the Pi constant.

               Rosslyn LONG and Rennes LONG .. and ..
 Recall the Grid LONGs of Rosslyn Chapel and of the Church at
 Rennes-le-Chateau. Notice their multiplied product ...
 18603.76601 X 16501.1845  =  31104000 X (Pi Squared).
 31104000  =  (5577.096019) Squared.
 The figure "5577.096019" is called, "The Giza Grid Point",
 by Carl Munck. This is the intersection of latitude and longitude,
 at Giza, marked by two sets of small, eroded pyramids.
 Each of these two sets has 3 small pyramids in perfect alignment ..
 one row-of-3 is aligned due East/West, and the other row-of- 3 is
 aligned due North/South. 
 The north/south set is aligned on E.Giza longitude .. 7.396853329 (sec) 
 And the east/west set is aligned on ...
 29 (deg)  X  (58 (min)  X  24.5261363 (sec)  North ..
 =  41252.96126  North.
 There, yet again, you have a numerical match .. of the "41252.96125"
 square arc-degrees of Generic Surface Area on a Sphere ...
 using The Radian (deg) of 57.29577951 as the *numerical value* for the
 "given Generic radius" ...
 4Pi  X  (57.29577951 X 57.29577951)  =  41252.96125 "Square arc-degrees". 
 You also can recall the "412.5296125" regular ("British") inches of the
 precise length of "The King's Chamber" .. my proposed and predicted
 20 Royal Cubits.

 So .. getting back to Munck's "Giza Grid Point" ...
 you take the ratio ...
 41252.96125 / 7.396853329  =  5577.096019  ... which is the
 Square Root of .. 31104000 .. which is precisely equal to ..
 (Rosslyn Grid LONG X Rennes Grid LONG) / (Pi Squared).

 Note :  31104000  =  1200 Earth precession cycles in years.
 { 1200 X 25920  =  31104000 }.   
 You can graphically see "The Giza Grid Point" come together at ...

              Some Solomon's Temple Dimensions

 I suggest you now go to ... 

 At the above website, we are given the information that the Outer Courtyard
 of Solomon's Temple was 2000 Royal Cubits in perimeter .. 500 Royal Cubits
 on each side (a square enclosure).
 So; what was this side-length in terms of regular ("British") inches ?
 500 X 20.62648063  =  10313.24031 regular inches.
 That figure .. "10313.24031" .. is a flat-out numerical match of the Generic
 Area of a Circle; using The Radian (deg) as numerical value for "given 
 Pi X (57.29577951 X 57.29577951)  =  10313.24031 "Square arc-degrees".
 Once again; encoding of advanced ancient knowledge is apparent.

 This website also says that the *Height* of Solomon's Temple was 120
 Royal Cubits. How many regular ("British") Feet was that ?
 (120 X 20.62648063) / 12  =  206.2648063 regular Feet.
 That's a numerical match of the 206.2648063 regular inches of precise width
 of "The King's Chamber".  

 This same website tells us that the Porchway of the House of
 Solomon's Temple was 20 Royal Cubits in length ("breadth").
 20 X 20.62648063  =  412.5296125 regular inches !!!
 This is an identical match of the length of "The King's Chamber"
 inside The Great Pyramid of Giza !!!  Not only is this a *numerical* match ..
 this is a flat-out match in actual length !!!

 Remember .. this is the Temple of King Solomon we're dealing with, here.
 That's King Solomon .. son of King David. 
 Laurence Gardner discusses the Grail bloodline ties involved in this ..
 going all the way back to Enki, himself .. the Anunnaki lord and master
 scientist, technician, and healer.
