This is the second installment. More history that is pertinent. Much more important though it discovers the Megalithic yard and positions it as the dominant measure for the Atlantean world that we have posted upon. All other measures are correctly derivative and that is very important and something that I had not suspected. But then at the time I did my work, I had no grasp of the true extent of the Atlantean world.
Now that I do it is the obvious first thing to test This work sorts all that out and the results are astonishing. Without doubt it was all put together around the introduction of the moon itself.. All the observed relationships are simply impossible naturally as shown by simple comparisons to other planets.
My own work had pieced together many of the relationships as well .
Quite a coincidence we thought – but it was nothing of the kind, for when we applied the principles of the pendulum to the Sumerian unit of length called the ‘double kush’ we found that a pendulum of this length beat at the rate of one per second. This meant that the Sumerian’s key unit of length and their key unit of time were two sides of the same coin when used as a pendulum. A double-kush pendulum would always beat out a second and a pendulum that beat at the rate of a second would always be a double kush in length. This demonstrates beyond all reasonable doubt that the Sumerians used pendulums to define their measurements. The question was, had they used the same Venus-watching principle as the Megalithic builders of the British Isles to reproduce their units? Sumerian written records tell us that the planet Venus was considered to be the goddess Inanna, who was of central importance to their culture, so it seemed entirely plausible. If they had used the same principle it seemed logical that they would have employed their own values; essentially keeping the same ‘software’ but inputting their own data. Instead of the 366 degrees of the Megalithic system we would have to use the more familiar 360 degrees first used by the Sumerians. And when we checked out the results for such a process – it worked perfectly. When the horizon was divided into 360 parts and Venus was timed across that part of the sky at the appropriate time of year the double-kush pendulum metres out exactly 240 seconds. And the period of 240 seconds is recorded as being so important to the Sumerians it had its own name – a ‘gesh’.It therefore seems certain that these people followed the Megalithic idea of creating a unit of length from timing the movement of Venus across the evening sky.
The American connection
Later in our research we came across a letter written by the great American statesman, Thomas Jefferson and sent to the House of Representatives on July 4th 1776. In this letter Jefferson laid out a recommendation for a new system of weights and measures for the new United States that he had helped to establish. He gave his reasoning and described some unusual facts he had uncovered whilst developing his intended units. He explained how he had realized that there was only one aspect of nature that gave rise to any reliable unit of measure – which he named as the turning of the Earth. So, like ourselves and the Megalithic builders of five and six millennia before him, he used the heavens to provide a basis for all measurement. In his letter he stated that he had come to realize that the imperial system of measurement used in Britain was not an accumulation of unrelated units as generally imagined. On the contrary, he said that their harmony indicated to him that they were members of a group of measurement units ‘from very high antiquity’. He gave a number of reasons for this belief including his astonishment that the foot, made up of twelve inches, was directly related to the ounce weight through the use of cubes. He said: ‘It has been found by accurate experiments that a cubic foot of rain water weighs 1000 ounces avoirdupois (Imperial).’ It could be coincidence that a cubic foot holds 1,000 ounces of rainwater, not 999 or 1,001, but exactly 1,000 – or that the cube has sides that are a perfect 10 x 10 x 10 one-tenths of a foot. But Jefferson did not think so. And nor do we.
He wrote: Let the second rod, then, as before described, be the standard of measure; and let it be divided into five equal parts, each of which shall be called a foot; for, perhaps, it may be better generally to retain the name of the nearest present measure, where one is tolerably near. It will be about one quarter of an inch shorter than the present foot. Let the foot be divided into 10 inches; The inch into 10 lines; The line into 10 points; Let 10 feet make a decad; 10 decads one rood; 10 roods a furlong; 10 furlongs a mile.’ We can see that his proposed ‘decad’ was based on a double-seconds rod. It was equivalent to six Sumerian kush, and his furlong was equal to 600 kush. This brings about an even deeper connection with the people of ancient Iraq because they used a system of counting that was sexagesimal; which means it used a combination of base ten and base sixty. They had a system of notation that worked as follows: Step multiple Value 1. 1 1 2. x10 10 3. x6 60 4. x10 600 5. x6 3,600 It can be seen that the figure of 600 is indeed a Sumerian value for a Sumerian unit of length.
But not only is the Jefferson furlong equal to 600 kush – it is also an almost perfect 360 Megalithic Yards. Strangely, Jefferson had connected well with both the Megalithic and the Sumerian system. But something even stranger happened when we took Jefferson’s furlong and multiplied it by 366 and 366 again: 3662 furlongs = 39,961.257km As we have already mentioned, the range of assumed lengths of the Earth circumference varies by a few kilometres depending on what source one consults, probably because each cross section will differ and tides and plate tectonics involving mountains leave room for some debate. At the higher end 40,008 kilometres is widely used, however if we take NASA preferred figures they quote a polar radius of 6,356.8 kilometres which equates to a polar circumference of 39,941.0 kilometres. That means that 3662 Jefferson furlongs match Nasa’s estimate of the Earth’s size to an accuracy of 99.95 per cent – which is as perfect as it gets!
Problems with Foucault’s pendulum
We became more and more fascinated by everything to do with pendulums. During one particular telephone conversation, which had gone on for over an hour, we had, yet again, discussed at length the idea that there might be some unknown law of astrophysics – that was revealed by pendulums – at work here. We considered some highly speculative thoughts that ranged from standing electromagnetic sine waves due to a gyroscopic effect of the Earth’s spin through to gravitons containing packets of information about ‘geometrical shape’.
