Marduk and His Temple are a Billboard for Measure. What measure, you might ask? The megalitic yard. Marduk (Sumerian spelling in Akkadian: dAMAR.UTU ??? “solar calf”; Greek Μαρδοχαῖος, Mardochaios) was a late-generation god from ancient Mesopotamia and patron deity of the city of Babylon. It is a ziggurat. It is a step shaped structure with a temple at the top. In this case it has 7 levels including the top temple.
The 1st Level of the Temple of Marduk Sets the Megalitiic Yard in a Big Way
First, the megalithic yard of 2.72 feet is the cornerstone of ancient civilizations. Consider the following:
- The oldest standing temple in the world on the southern island of Malta has a triangle. Its 3 sides measure 2.72 feet.
HOW HARMONY UNITES NUMBERS 5 AND 6
Harmony’s number is 272. Question: In what possible way can 272 bind opposing forces as one? Answer: Numbers 5 and 6 were considered polar opposite numbers. Five was yin. Six was yang. The five pointed star was a symbol of man. The hexagon, with 6 sides, was connected to the cosmos and the inanimate. In the Medieval gardens and decorations the five strong petaled rose was thought of yin; while the six- petaled lily was yang (refer to John Michell in City of Revelation). Many crystalline forms, the snowflake, even the cells of a honeycomb are six sided…So how does 272 unite man and the cosmos through numbers 5 and 6? Answer: 272 results from basic arithmetic of numbers 5 (yin) and 6 (yang). As, 6 x 5/ 6 + 5 = 2.72727272… Or stated in another way, 30/11= 2.727272….The ancients took 2.72 as setting the pattern.
The first level of Marduk’s temple is square it outline. It measures 300 square feet. There is your 30 multipled by 10. Its height is 110 feet. There is your 11 multiplied by 10. Both factors are there. Multiples by 10 were freely used in antiquity. They grow out of the hidden number codes on the 3 x 3 number square. I’ve blogged about these multiples that go to inifinity. Conclusion: The first level of the temple’s base is a giant billboard for the megalitic yard.
