Now Comes .. A Star Named "APEX" ..

There is a Star Named .. "APEX" ..

If you go to the following website, you will see the sky-coordinates for this star named "APEX".


Remember .. that the star-latitudes on that list are measured from our ecliptic. And .. the star-longitudes on that list are measured from a celestial prime meridian, perpendicular to our ecliptic .. that appears (from ground-Earth) to "pass through" the Orion belt-star ALNITAK (the 'lower-left' belt-star, as viewed from ground-Earth). ALNITAK is our celestial prime meridian "marker" ... just as The Great Pyramid of Giza is our prime meridian "marker" on Earth's surface, and just as 'The D&M Pyramid' is the prime meridian "marker" on the surface of Mars, at Cydonia. All 3 .. yes .. all 3 prime meridians, are precisely correlated, in space/time .. as of Circa 2000 A.D., as difficult to understand as this might first seem to you. However, it_will_be shown .. through the scientific process of repeatability, and verification-upon-verification, by many people .. that this is a_self-evident_fact.


Archaeo-sky Matrix Numbers ..

for .. "APEX" star .. Circa 2000 A.D.

Grid LAT 53 (deg) X 26 (min) X 27.00111177 (sec) North (of ecliptic) ..

= 37207.53202 North (of ecliptic).

Grid LONG 173 (deg) X 13 (min) X 47.02552383 (sec) W.ALNITAK ..

= 105760.4031 W.ALNITAK.

Grid POINT Value .. 105760.4031 / 37207.53202 = 2.842446068


First, of course, take note of the_name_of this star .. "APEX". You will see how this relates to the Apex of The Great Pyramid of Giza, itself; actually .. the_inferred_original apex-capstone.


Precise Correlation to Base Slope Angle

of The Great Pyramid of Giza


The Grid LAT of circa 2000 A.D. "APEX" star (as shown above) is, in fact, the exact value_of_the Archaeo-sky Matrix_format_of the precise base slope angle of The Great Pyramid, itself. C.P. Munck (1992, self-published, "The Code, Vol. A") learned that this base slope angle .. 51 deg 51 min 14.305 sec .. is on-file, as a matter of public record, in The British Museum of London, England. An actual original casing-stone, found partially-buried near the base of The Great Pyramid, was transported to The British Museum, and was very_meticulously_measured, to that (above-stated) tolerance.


Munck then derived the inferred multiplied-product "matrix value" ..

51 (deg) X 51 (min) X 14.30508728 (sec) = 37207.53202


Notice ... 37207.53202 = 12 X (Pi Cubed) X 100.

The value of Pi, in that equation, is accurate to 9 decimal places.


If I divide 37207.53202 .. by the Grid LAT that I found for circa 2000 A.D. ALNITAK (the celestial prime meridian "marker-star") .. (Morton, 1999, Internet); (37207.53202 / 15707.96327) = 2.368705056


The figure 2.368705056_is_ the Grid POINT Value (Morton, 1999, Internet) of circa 2000 A.D. SIRIUS .. in the Archaeo-sky Matrix. The figure 15707.96327 is, as I mention above, the circa 2000 A.D. Grid LAT of ALNITAK .. the 'lower-left' belt-star of Orion, as viewed from Earth; and ALNITAK_is_the "marker" for our celestial prime meridian that's perpendicular to our ecliptic. 15707.96327 South (of ecliptic) ..

= 25 (deg) X 17 (min) X 36.95991357 (sec) South (of ecliptic).


It has been fairly well-established, by now, that ALNITAK corresponds_ 'positionally'_to The Great Pyramid .. from the perspective of an over-head (aerial) view from_ north_of the Giza complex (see R.Bauval's work).


Correlation to Apex-Latitude of The Great Pyramid


C.P. Munck (1992, self-published, "The Code, Vol. A") found the Apex-Latitude of The Great Pyramid. He discovered it to be precisely-related to the Earth precession cycle of 25920 years_and_also to the Cube Root of double-Pi. Double-Pi is the 'number' of Radian-arcs on one 'circumference' .. a mathematical, geometrical constant. In other words .. if you let the unit-value of the_radius_of a circle or sphere be "1" .. the_value_of the circumference of that circle or sphere is .. double-Pi, or ..

(2 X 3.141592654) =



Munck actually found an_implicit_"Archaeo-sky matrix" value .. indicated .. for the equatorial circumference of Earth .. in terms of statute miles, as follows.

1) The Cube Root of double-Pi is ... 1.845270149

2) He found a figure in statute miles .. very, very close to the current equatorial circumference of Earth .. 24901.54558 ... to have a_tangent_essentially equivalent-to ... the Cube Root of double-Pi. TAN 24901.54558 = 1.845270038

3) He then took the ratio of that statute-mileage figure and the Earth precession cycle (the ideal figure) .. (25920 / 24901.54558) = 1.040899245

4) He divided_that_figure into the "Grid LAT" (Munck, 1992) of The Great Pyramid. The "Grid LAT" of The Great Pyramid is located on the north face .. not at the apex !! { 89298.07684 / 1.040899245 = 85789.35691 North ..

= 29 (deg) X 58 (min) X 51.00437391 (sec) North ... the Apex-Latitude of The Great Pyramid of Giza }.

[ ]


Munck had found that the designers/builders of The Great Pyramid .. had precisely keyed the centered-latitude of that structure to "display" the Earth precession cycle in years_and_the Cube Root of double-Pi. What I have now found .. is that "someone" keyed .. "somehow" .. a certain star_named_"APEX" .. to precisely correlate .. as of circa 2000 A.D., with NOT ONLY the Apex-Latitude of The Great Pyramid of Giza .. but_also_ with its inferred Apex-Height, including the original capstone .. in terms of .. regular ("British") feet !!!


Munck's (1992) derived original height (including capstone) for The Great Pyramid is .. 480.3471728 regular ("British") feet. I will now multiply that figure .. by .. the (see above) Grid POINT Value I have calculated for the circa 2000 A.D. archaeo-sky matrix location (Morton, 2001) of the star "APEX" ..

(480.3471728 X 2.842446068) = 1365.360933


Next .. I will multiply_that_figure by the constant of double-Pi ... 1365.360933 X 6.283185307 = 8578.815753

Now; base 10_is_very much integral to this archaeo-sky matrix. In turn, I will_multiply_now by .. 10 ... to get ... 85788.15753


85788.15753 / 29 (deg) / 58 (min) = 51.00366084 (sec) North .. which is_extremely_close to the Apex-Latitude of The Great Pyramid !!

"HOW .. CLOSE .. IS IT ?!? "


- 51.00366084


00.00071307 ... that's in decimal-fractional arc-seconds of latitude !!


In terms of regular ("British") feet .. that is equivalent to .. approximately .. 0.072 ... which, in turn, is equivalent to .. approximately .. 0.864 regular inches !!


Yes .. we are_under_one regular inch !!! And now; I must ask you .. "Is that_close-enough_for .. You !!?" (-;


In looking at a star chart, I've noticed that "APEX" Star is located in the constellation of Ophiuchus, "The Serpent Holder" .. also known as "The Healer" (various sources). Another name for the "APEX" Star is .. "Ras Alhegue" (Arabic). Ophiuchus, a 'mighty-man form', is 'holding' SERPENS. (source .. "The Glory of the Stars", by E.Raymond Capt).


APEX is the brightest star in the Ophiuchus constellation, and is located in the_head_of the mighty-man form. In fact, it could be located in the brain-stem area .. or, at least near the top of the vertebrae. Some people refer to Ophiuchus as the "13th Zodiac Sign".

(I'm wondering if the number 13 will 'show-up' in calculations involving APEX .. we'll see, although at this moment I have no idea).


APEX is viewed as sitting at the top (at the "apex") of a pointed "roof", which, in turn, is over a vertically-oriented "rectangular" form. This 2-D appearance gives the impression of a "house", with a typical pointed roof. The "roof" is formed by the 2 shoulders and the head of Ophiuchus .. three stars, including APEX (in the head).


How APEX Relates Precisely ..

To 'The Face' at Cydonia, to The Radian (deg) ..

And to The Great Pyramid of Giza


Yes .. I found an equation that neatly expresses this simultaneous relationship. You might recall, from some previous email postings, or from one of the websites where I have my work posted .. that I was discussing how the *Radian-arc* is displayed, from an over-head (aerial) view of the Giza complex, with the center_at_the 'apex' of The Great Pyramid.


As part of that discussion, I showed how the_numerical value_ of the Radian-arc, assuming the conventional 360 arc-degrees on any one given circumference, is equal to .. 57.29577951 arc-degrees, and how that numerical value resonates so precisely with the "SIRIUS Apex-Point" near the top of The Great Pyramid. The "SIRIUS Apex-Point" is apparently located a bit_south_of the inferred_exact_apex .. apparently just-below the base of the inferred original capstone .. on the south face of The Great Pyramid.


I found (as indicated in my previous email) that "APEX" star's Grid POINT Value relates directly to the very (exact) 'apex' of the inferred original capstone.


Now, I will show how The Radian (deg) correlates_precisely-and-simultaneously_ with 3_major_Grid POINT Values in the "archaeo-sky matrix" ...

1) 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars.

2) The Great Pyramid of Giza.

3) the APEX star, itself.


Radian (deg) X APEX-star = 'The Face' X The Great Pyramid.


57.29577951 X 2.842446068 = 656.56127 X 248.0502134


There are some other major points (pun not intended) about this

"APEX" star subject, that I'd like to share.


First of all, I'm sure some of you noticed that a certain

power-of-ten factor was missing from the equation I sent

in my previous email on this topic.

I forgot to include the (10 Cubed) factor in that equation.

Well .. at least I had the decimal harmonic !! (-;

So; here's the equation, again; this time with (10 Cubed) included ..


(57.29577951 X 2.842446068 X 1000) = (656.56127 X 248.0502134).


Some of you will recognize something "deja-vu" regarding that equation, I



Recall the "Riddle-of-the-Sphinx" email post from me ?

How I multiplied 4 entities together ? And that those 4 entities were/are ..

The Bull, The Lion, The Eagle, and Man ? And that the "number of a man"

that I used was/is .. 216 .. the Cube of 6, or .. 6*6*6 ?


Do you recall the multiplied-product I got from those 4 entities ?



= (THE FACE @Cydonia X THE GREAT PYRAMID of Giza).


In other "language" ...

8.888888889 X 19.7392088 X 4.297183464 X 216 ...

= 162860.1632 = (656.56127 X 248.0502134).



At this juncture .. I'm asking myself .. and You ..

"I wonder, now, how many people are still of-the-opinion that I'm

just "making-up all these numbers, to fit my theory" .. ???



Now: please recall from my_first_email on this subject .. from a couple of

days ago .. how I showed the 'approximate' latitude difference .. atop the

inferred original capstone of The Great Pyramid of Giza .. of just 0.864


("British") inches .. between Munck's (1992) Apex-Latitude, and the


that I calculated directly-from .. my Grid POINT Value for (circa 2000 A.D.)

APEX-star, Munck's (1992) inferred original capstone-apex-height in regular

("British") feet, the constant of 2Pi, and the number 10.

{ Please refer to that email post }.


Keep in mind that the (above) difference in latitude, atop the original


of The Great Pyramid, is_less_than one regular inch !!

Also .. keep in mind that my 'approximate' figure_for_that difference is ..

0.864 of a regular inch !!


Munck's (1992) Grid LAT for 'The D&M Pyramid' at Cydonia on Mars ..

is .. 9929.184894 North ..

= 40 (deg) X 52 (min) X 4.773646584 (sec) North.


My (Morton, 2001) calculated Apex-Latitude, as specifically-referenced above,

for The Great Pyramid of Giza .. is .. 85788.15751 North ..

= 29 (deg) X 58 (min) X 51.00366082 (sec) North.


Here is the ratio ..


(85788.15751 / 9929.184894) = 8.64 .. decimal harmonic_match_of .. 0.864


So .. now .. I wonder how many people are still going to be of-the-opinion

that I'm just "making-up all these numbers". ???


How POLARIS Figures-in ..

Recall the Grid POINT Value I found (Morton, 1999) for the circa 2000 A.D.

sky-location of POLARIS .. our current 'north pole star' .. 21.6


That, in-and-of itself .. is remarkable .. because 21,600 is the exact_polar_

circumference of Earth in nautical miles_and_in latitude arc-minutes.

You have, once again, a_self-evident_decimal harmonic involved.


Comparing POLARIS with APEX ...

2.842446068 / 21.6 = 0.1315947253


Yes .. that is a *major* decimal harmonic .. in the "archaeo-sky matrix",

as some of you, even at this moment, will recognize.


Here is the ratio .. of_that_figure .. with .. "8.64" ...


8.64 / 0.1315947253 = 65.656127 .. decimal harmonic of .. the Grid POINT

Value of .. 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars (656.56127, Munck, 1992).

And .. 65.656127 .. is the Grid POINT Value (Morton, 1998) of the site at

Bethlehem .. corresponding to the specific location calculated by Bruce


in his research involving the actual geo-magnetic 'grid' of Earth.

See his figures on page 109 of his book, "The Harmonic Conquest of Space".

Also .. see a detailed explanation of my calculations for that 'spot' .. at


See the following websites for further details regarding the above

correlations ..
