One Thread Spans the Globe in Antiquity10 December 2018December 10, 2018Sharon OhrensteinLeave a comment One Thread Spans the Globe in Antiquity. Who would think a simple rectangular courtyard in Tikal holds a key to understanding the past? View of Mayan courtyard at Tikal. It uses same numbers and proportions as found in Marduk’s ziggurat and the Great Pyramid of Egypt. The connection with the Great Pyramid is in the internal link below.Measurement Interchange on the Great PyramidHere is the comparison of the numbers and proportions of the Tikal courtyard with the ziggurat at Ur. Tikal (/tiˈkɑːl/) (Tik’al in modern Mayan orthography) is the ruin of an ancient city. The location was likely to have been called Yax Mutal. It is found in a rain forest in Guatemala. It is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. To find the one thread between Tikal and Babylon look at the courtyard, It is in the featured picture. Ancient priests were interested in common numbers. This is regardless of the choice of ancient measure they used. It was the number that was key. The rectangular dimensions of the courtyard were 400 feet by 250 feet. These two numbers are in the ratio of 8 to five respectively. Here is the co-incidence: One ThreadThe ziggurat was built in seven layers. Marduk’s residence was at the top. The unit of measure used was called the “gar”. One gar equals 19.2 feet. Its essential rectangular dimensions were 4 x 2.5 gars. Note the similarity to the 400 to 250 feet of the courtyard under discussion. The proportions, obviously, are the same. The Great Pyramid, the Tikal court yard and Marduk’s residence employ to 8 to 5 ratio.Fibonacci Series NumbersInterestingly, eight to five are part of a special series of numbers. These numbers are called the Fibonacci series. They go from 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…Each number to the right is the sum of the two previous numbers. The series is behind the law of natural growth. Yes, one thread does span the globe. Even more significant, it is a Fibonacci thread!
