King Arthur: His Palace and the Megalithic Mile. Baffling co-incidences occur in the realm of ancient measurements including the use of the same measures in places separated by great distances. Take the megalithic mile which measures 14,400 feet. This distance is 2.7272…tomes greater than the 5,280 foot British mile. For that matter, one megalithic yard equals 2.7272…British feet (12 inches each). Why 14,400 feet? Isn’t a shorter 5,280 foot mile easier for supposedly primitive people to use for measurement? Consider this: John Michell describes in his The View Over Atlantis how out of the 300 churches on the Ordinance Survey Sheet in the Stonehenge area, over 100 are separated multiples of the 14,400 foot geomancer’s mile. A couple of examples:
- In the Glastonbury area the distance from the Tor (the area’s most sacred mount) and Cadbury Camp,the alleged site of King Arthur’s palace, is 4 x 14,400 feet.
- Just in the Glastonbury area, the Abbey and Wells Cathedral are two geomancer’s miles apart.
WHERE DID THE 14,400 FOOT MILE COME FROM?
Why 14,400? I’ve found two reasons. The second is based on the first. The first is the 3 x 3 magic number square and the second are the five regular polyhedrons, popularly known as the Platonic Solids. I have documented in my works how the 3 x 3 number square is a numerical stamping block for the five Platonic solids.As a matter of fact, it is a stamp for most of the sciences and arts not only of mankind; but I can say with assurance that if civilizations existed at peace on other planets, this 3 x 3 number square would be at their basis.
- On the 3 x 3 magic number square, where any row of three numbers totals 15, this sum can be found in 8 different ways: 3 vertically, 3 horizontally and 2 diagonally for a total of 120. Squaring this number that characterizes this number square, we have 120 x 120 = 14,400.
- Among the five regular polyhedrons, three (tetrahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron) have a total of 32 triangles ( 180 degrees/triangle x 32 = 5,760 degrees. The cube has six squares at 360 degrees per square = 2,160 degrees and the dodecahedron has 12 regular pentagons so 12 x 540 =6,480 degrees. Add these figures and you have 5,760 + 6,480 + 2,160 = 14,400.
Our allegedly primitive ancestors took the 3 x 3 number square and built their civilizations using its properties as their engineering tool par excellence. Over time, I will keep on blogging about their forgotten wisdom. Here is the tie in with King Arthur: As the Lady of the Lake gave King Arthur the Excalibur sword, the Lady of Oquaga Lake showed me what I have come to know, and am sharing. The goal, as per the 8th century Greek poet and philospher, Hesiod; is a lasting Golden Age of peace and plenty. My book, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, will be available shortly and very reasonably, on this website. It was dictated to me, word by word, by the Lady of the Lake while living in the Catskills of New York.
