Exploring the UVG Grid with Google Earth
Basic Instructions for Exploring the UVG Grid with Google Earth Bethe Hagens Nazca The basic Google Earth program is available for PC and Mac—free!—at SETTING UP THE UVG “UVG-grid-compiled-by-B-Hagens.kmz” FILE In the upper left corner of the Google Earth screen, click File. You can view the UVG Grid in many ways. If you go into the folder titled “Regular Geometric Solids,’ you can see subfolders and can look at (or hide) all of the different geometric figures and great circles that make up the UVG Grid. Every line of the UVG is part of a great circle (equator) that divides the sphere of Earth in half. Bill Becker, with whom I worked closely on this project for 12 years from 1981 until 1993, was a colleague of Buckminster Fuller.

The Hexagon and the Solstice After a review of geometric design types found in Chaco Canyon kivas, a rather remarkable coincidence between design and astronomy is discussed. Walking among the ruins or gazing at photographs of the pueblos in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, you will notice the interplay of squares and circles. [[Figure 1.

Axis Mundi From New World Encyclopedia The axis mundi (also cosmic axis, world axis, world pillar and center of the world) is a symbol representing the center of the world where the heaven (sky) connects with the earth. Different cultures represent the axis mundi by varied symbols such as a natural object (a mountain, a tree, a vine, a stalk, a column of smoke or fire) or of a product of human manufacture (a staff, a tower, a ladder, a staircase, a maypole, a cross, a steeple, a rope, a totem pole, a pillar, a spire). Its proximity to heaven may carry implications that are chiefly religious (pagoda, temple mount, church) or secular (obelisk, minaret, lighthouse, rocket, skyscraper).[1] Additionally, the axis mundi may be feminine (an umbilical providing nourishment), masculine (a phallus providing insemination into a uterus), or neither (e.g the omphalos (navel).[2] The axis mundi features prominently in cultures utilizing shamanic practices or those with animist belief systems.

Sacred Geometry: Flower of Life Sacred Geometry - Flower of Life By Andrew Monkman I believe the complete ancient flower of life is an inter-dimensional tool, a portal, a stargate, a window into what some call the inter space plains. The original flower of life (found on several pillars within "the Osireion" at abydos in Egypt) is incomplete, because it is only the first layer of three (pic1+2). 1. The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt. 2. The complete flower has the other two layers added, making it three dimensional (pic3). 3. What appears is a reptilian entity. Flower of Life - Beijing, China The second being is the Chinese dragon ( the fu dog). You may know that the complete flower contains the kabbalah`s tree of life, the fruit, the egg and the seed of life (pic. 4 & 5). 4. 5. The complete flower also contains the three dimensional metatron cube (pic6), which holds all the Platonic solids (pic7). 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Constellations: Memory Game:Amazon:Toys & Games Are We Really All Made of Stars? | Cosmos, Moby’s Song ‘We Are All Made of Stars’, Universe & Solar System | Life's Little Mysteries The theory that everyone and everything on Earth contains minuscule star particles dates back further than Moby's popular 2002 song "We Are All Made of Stars." In the early 1980s, astronomer Carl Sagan hosted and narrated a 13-part television series called "Cosmos" that aired on PBS. On the show, Sagan thoroughly explained many science-related topics, including Earth's history, evolution, the origin of life and the solar system. "We are a way for the universe to know itself. His statement sums up the fact that the carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies, as well as atoms of all other heavy elements, were created in previous generations of stars over 4.5 billion years ago. "All organic matter containing carbon was produced originally in stars," Impey told Life's Little Mysteries. How star stuff got to Earth When it has exhausted its supply of hydrogen, it can die in a violent explostion, called a nova. "It's a well-tested theory," Impey said.

6. Ancient Astronomy - Mystic Order of Noble Knowledge If it wasn’t for the Ancient Egyptian’s curiosity of our universe, fraternities like the Freemasons wouldn’t be in existence. The Egyptian’s knew the earth revolved around the sun and that the sun appeared to move through the universe. It was this knowledge that enlightened the ancients to count the days of the year and create the zodiac. The Ancient Egyptians began by worshipping the One True God under the symbol of the sun. The sun is the most glorious object in the universe, the source of light and food for all living things. Overtime, the common man begun to worship the One True God less and less and idolized the sun itself. By keeping the knowledge of the inner workings of the universe to themselves, the Egyptian priests were able to control the masses through their mysticism. As the sun passed through each sign of the zodiac, it became, or triumphed over that sign. This practice continued through most of the ancient civilizations.

Space Zen: Will Humans' Brains Change During Travel in Outer Space? -A Galaxy Insight In February, 1971, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell experienced the little understood phenomenon sometimes called the “Overview Effect”. He describes being completely engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness. Without warning, he says, a feeing of bliss, timelessness, and connectedness began to overwhelm him. He describes becoming instantly and profoundly aware that each of his constituent atoms were connected to the fragile planet he saw in the window and to every other atom in the Universe. Rusty Schweikart experienced it on March 6th 1969 during a spacewalk outside his Apollo 9 vehicle: “When you go around the Earth in an hour and a half, you begin to recognize that your identity is with that whole thing. Their experiences, along with dozens of other similar experiences described by other astronauts, intrigue scientists who study the brain. Newberg's first test subject will not be an astronaut, but rather a civilian. This is done with Faraday cages.

Weightless Flames: How Fires Burn in Space | Fire in Zero-G SAN DIEGO — How do you put out a fire on a space station? If you were to ask an Earthbound firefighter how to extinguish a fire, he might tell you to aim for the base of the flame. But what if there is no base? These and other questions are being probed by a group of undergraduate students here at the microgravity lab at the University of California, San Diego’s School of Engineering, where scientists want to understand the nature of fire, sans gravity. Led by engineering undergraduate Sam Avery, the student project manager for the experiment, the work seeks to better define how combustible fluids burn in space, particularly biofuels. "I went to a professor who I thought had some interesting research in microgravity combustion, and I asked if I could build on his research to enter the NASA Microgravity University Program," Avery said recently at his lab.

Nibiru's Orbit, The Red Star of Bethlehem, Sonic Levitation, Ancient Wisdom by David Millo Articles by David Millo All Articles Copyright 2002 by David Millo, Copyright 2002 The Red Star of Bethlehem by David Millo "We have seen his star appear in the first rays of dawn... and lo, the star which they had seen in the east, went on before them, until it came and stood over where the child was." This bible narrative from Matthew recounts the actions of ancient astronomers - Wise Men. With the first rays of dawn on February 1, 4 BC that star appeared. Mars had an Arean association to the Babylonians. Auspiciously, Mars' retrograde motion made it appear to stand still for some 5 days centered on the spring equinox. Antares becomes visible in the southeastern sky about mid-spring to observers in the northern hemisphere. The apostle Paul expounded on the 'UNKNOWN GOD'S" altar to the Athenians on Mars Hill (Acts 17:22-31). This 2003 opposition will be 56 million km. away. Mars is the god of war.

Time Is Right for Arab Astronomy Renaissance, Scientist Says It's time for the Arab Muslim world to reclaim its lost tradition of astronomical learning, one prominent researcher says. Building a new generation of observatories would spark interest in fundamental research across the region, which in recent years has taken a much more utilitarian approach to science, said Nidhal Guessoum, a professor of physics and astronomy at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. "Astronomy has a natural place high in the landscape of Arab Islamic culture," Guessoum wrote in a commentary published in the June 13 issue of the journal Nature. "It must be brought back." A lost tradition Astronomy has traditionally been important in the practice of Islam, Guessoum wrote, helping believers calculate prayer times and locations, determine the direction to the holy city of Mecca and map out the dates of festivals and pilgrimages. "Thus hundreds of stars and constellations have Arabic names, such as Altair, Deneb, Vega and Rigel," Guessoum wrote.

'Something may come through' dimensional 'doors' at LHC High performance access to file storage A top boffin at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension". "Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ earlier this week. The LHC, built inside a 27-km circular subterranean tunnel deep beneath the Franco-Swiss border outside Geneva, functions like a sort of orbital motorway for extremely high-speed hadrons - typically either protons or lead ions. The differences are, firstly, that the streams of particles are moving at velocities within a whisker of light speed - such that each stream has as much energy in it as a normal car going at 1000mph. Obviously all that's utter rubbish.

Hubble Goes to the eXtreme to Assemble Farthest-Ever View of the Universe Hubble Goes to the eXtreme to Assemble Farthest-Ever View of the Universe Like photographers assembling a portfolio of best shots, astronomers have assembled a new, improved portrait of mankind's deepest-ever view of the universe. (Credit: NASA; ESA; G. Illingworth, D. Called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, the photo was assembled by combining 10 years of NASA Hubble Space Telescope photographs taken of a patch of sky at the center of the original Hubble Ultra Deep Field. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is an image of a small area of space in the constellation Fornax, created using Hubble Space Telescope data from 2003 and 2004. The new full-color XDF image is even more sensitive, and contains about 5,500 galaxies even within its smaller field of view. Magnificent spiral galaxies similar in shape to our Milky Way and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy appear in this image, as do the large, fuzzy red galaxies where the formation of new stars has ceased.
