The Culture of Astronomy

ASTRONOMY is the Holy Grail in the Sky, The Tree of Knowledge, and The Key to All Mystery. Ancient Sky-watching created 'the scientific method' of observation in a structured, calibrated setting of wooden poles and stone circles - where recordation, analysis, repeated review, and observation led to the development of theories, canons, and conclusions which today we call -the scientific method.

The need for extensive and accurate record-keeping of celestial events led to the creation and development of symbols, numbers, geometry, and written language.

The Culture of Astronomy is the only work that contains: astro-mythology, astro-history, astro-physics, astrology, philosophy of astronomy, cosmological worldview -including Cycles of the Great Global Catastrophies, The Great Ages of the Zodiac; and detailed analysis of Vedic, Indian, Khmer, Andean and Maya astronomy. We have traveled to five continents to physically examine ancient astronomical sites and observatories.

Everything that we see and experience rotates in cycles. Nothing travels in a straight line for long. All culture and the disciplines of science, physics, law, and numbers come from ancient astronomy.

the temple of heaven & earth

Temple of Heaven & Earth is an indepth study of Earth & Cosmic energies.

These energies have been the basis of all ancient science and religion around the world. Because of its global acceptance, energy science and religion became a discipline of many confusing names and variations. The powerful rise of new religions like Judaism, Christianity, and Islam were anathema to the ancient beliefs of energy science and religion which have been cast away and disgarded as useless.

Yet, these special energy sites brought both inspiration and cures to ancient people -and are today visited by countless travelers every year who seem to react to the comforting energy. These sacred locations also functioned as the meeting places for government, law courts, ritual, business, and social transactions; such as dancing, music, and entertainment.

Ancient traditions should first be considered true and factual –and not discredited out of hand without evidence to the contrary. In the last hundred years we have found out that there were giants as well as little people in most countries on the globe; that there is folklore of a great flood in 260 countries, that all ancient sites were aligned to the Sun and the cardinal directions; and that myths are connected with astronomical cycles of the zodiac. The Twelve Houses of the zodiac are a cosmic clock delving deep into the origins of culture and civilization.

Atlas was indeed the greatest astronomer and geographer of all time. He lived in Fez-Morocco on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean where he conducted his celestial observations on the Mountains of Atlas. Atlas founded the Atlantic Prime Meridian which has appeared on maps throughout the centuries. Atlas was the brother of Cronus, Prometheus, and Epimetheus. Atlas was also the father of the Pleiades (aka, Hesperides) who guarded the Golden Apples on the Isles of the Blessed, as the Canary Islands were once called. Atlas still carries the celestial globe upon his shoulders as shown in an Etruscan marble in the Naples museum (525 BC). There is deep meaning to this symbolic statue of Atlas who taught astronomy to the Egyptian Hercules-Shu. Prometheus, brother of Atlas, established a school of astronomy in the Caucasus Mountains, which became the origins of Vedic astronomy.

The British Isles, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco,  Greece, and Europe are founded upon ancient Atlantic culture.

 The Fire at Notre Dame de Paris on April 15, 2019

It is amazing to look at a horoscope of the day when Notre Dame Cathedral exploded in flame and smoke on April 15, 2019 at about 6:43 pm local time. The church was built upon the Ile de la Cite, the natural island center of all Paris; once containing an ancient temple of the goddess Isis where her statue was found and preserved until 1514 AD. Calibrating the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets against the longitude of this ancient and powerful center at 2.35° East longitude shows a marvelous diagram of celestial mechanics, physics, fate, and mythology: Mercury, Venus, and Neptune are together and aligned above the longitude of Notre Dame de Paris. Mercury is celebrated on the nearby Mons Mercury, Montmartre; while Venus would betoken Isis. Curiously, one of the ancient relics of the site is the stone pillar erected by the boatmen of Paris which connotes Neptune. The Sun and Uranus rise exactly 30° after the conjunction of Mercury-Venus-Neptune above Notre Dame. Saturn and Pluto are 60° ahead of the fatal conjunction; while Jupiter and the Galactic Center are quartile 90° to the assembly of Mercury-Venus-Neptune at Paris. 

Let us be clear about cause. Astrology is simply celestial physics in a geo-centric context. Things are created in time –then the cycles of the cosmos move onward. Should we believe that God burned the cathedral? Was it Fate, or Karma, or Cosmic Necessity? Was it a Sign to us all? Was there a Purpose to this destruction to wake us and turn us into a new direction? Everyone should look at this in the light of their own religion; and draw their own meaning and beliefs according to their own perspective. Consider the Great Lisbon Earthquake -that certainy made a lot of people take a new look at life's meaning -which is always a good thing.

The Creator so fashioned the world that a powerful earth-energy site was created beneath this location which was celebrated by the ancient people, taken over by medieval Europeans, and adopted by modern civilization. On April 15, 2019 this magical site experienced an explosive power surge created by the positions of the Sun, Moon, and Planets. Physics are cold hard facts; but physics might just change people's minds!
