Clues in the Search for Atlantis Come With # 5 and #6.

Clues about Atlantis are also found in the Temples on Malta

Clues in the Search for Atlantis Come With Numbers 5 and 6. The story of Atlantis comes to us from Timaeus, a Socratic dialogue, written in about 360 B.C. by Plato.  In Timaeus 5 and 6 are featured as follows: People were gathered every 5th and 6th years alternately: Thus giving equal honor to odd and even numbers. The gathering of the population was for judgement and atonement.

Music had a place of honor in the distant past.  Harmonious music vibrates in whole number ratios.  Plato, in his Republic, required it to be mandatory study until the age of 30.

The Clues are Here about how 5 and 6 Were brought together in the Distant Past to Create Peace

Five and Six were unified by a Neolithic measure called megalithic yard. It is 2.72 feet. Professor A. Thom of Oxford University discovered it in the late 1960’s. It’s use was worldwide. Below is the formula for the measure.  The product below was then taken as feet. The 12 inch foot is of great antiquity. It is not an anachronism, The cubic inch of gold was a standard unit of weight in Sumeria, Babylon and Greece. Examples can currently be found at the British Museum. A cube has 12 edges. Thus, 12 edges x 1 inch = 1 foot. Very important: note how 5 and 6 alternate in the formulas below. This gives equal honor to odd and even numbers.

  • 5 x 6/ 5 + 6 = 2.727272……the numbers of the megalithic yard

The 2.72 foot measure was also projected by the Egyptian Canon of measures. I think the MY’s relationship of 5 to 6 was rediscovered by myself?  The Egyptian formula was expressed differently. The megalithic yard was: the square root of 5  x  1.2165 foot Egyptian remen = 2.72 feet. 

Israel Partakes of the 5 and 6 Tradition for Peace.

Six is obvious. It is the 6-pointed Star of David on the flag is Israel.  Finding the 5 involves gematria. This is a word that expresses the total unity the numbers and letters once had. There were no separate letter and number systems. Israel in Hebrew translates to 541  (יִשְׂרָאֵל). One (1) was often added to words for the presence of God. The tradition was called colel. How does that relate to number five? A pentagon (five-sided, plane geometrical figure) has 540 degreees. The the 540 defines the pentagon’s five sides. Again, odd and even numbers are given honor equally. This is through the pentagon that expressed Israel and hexagon that is formed its Star of David. 


Units of measure in the past had longer and shorter values. The example of ratio of 175 to 176 ratio of measure was almost universal. John Michell gives examples in his New View Over Atlantis. Here’s the connection of the hunab with 5 and 6:   (6 x 6 x 6) +  (5 x 5 x 5)  =  341. That figure, as 3.41 feet for the hunab, is within 98.7% of the value of the shorter hunab. It is based on the 175 ratio of 3.456 feet. Some units of measure even had three expressions: Such was the Egyptian cubit. The longer was 1.728 feet, A middle sized one was 1.72 feet. The shorter Egyptian cubit was 1.81818…feet.

The Clues: How the Egyptians Interacted 5 and 6

The longer Egyptian cubit was 1.728 feet.It was expressed through the two feature numbers: 6 x 6 x 6 feet/ 5 x 5 x 5 feet  = 1.728 feet.

Conclusion:  Consecutive whole numbers are a great part of harmony. And, 5 and 6 were brought together in harmonious measurement. Harmonious numbers, interacting  in such low whole number ratios, produce beautiful sounds. 2:1 is the octave, 2:3 , is the fifth, 3:4 was the fourth. 4:5 was the third. It’s time to place harmonious ratios back into civilization: Be it through music, art, and architecture. Hopefully, it will rub off on us.


    1. Thanks, 5 symbolized the 5 petalled rose. Six was the Lilly. Yin and Yang respectively. The megalitic yard and hunab, as measures, represented the ideal fusion of these two qualities.- David
