Richard Merrick has written a book to be released May 22 entitled The Venus Blueprint.

His description of the book:


The Venus Blueprint makes the startling case that the orbital resonance pattern of Venus as seen from Earth was central to the development of early science, religion and government. Throughout recorded history, the pentagonal cycle of Venus has been repeatedly associated with the feminine aspect of God from Babylonian Ishtar and Indian Shukra to the Saxon goddess Eastre and Greek Aphrodite. New evidence now suggests that the orbital geometry of Venus, tracing out a rose pentacle between the Sun and Earth, was used as a sacred fertility symbol to design the world’s greatest temples. Revealed here for the first time, this is the story of The Venus Blueprint.

The evidence begins with the discovery of a Vedic religious symbol known as Mount Meru etched into the sacristy wall of 15th-century Rosslyn chapel. This one symbol leads to a cascade of revelations suggesting this Roman Catholic collegiate chapel was actually designed to celebrate a much older Vedic cosmology known today as The Birth of Venus. A step-by-step analysis explains how the Blueprint symbol was used to design the chapel’s acoustics, placement of architectural symbols and overall floor plan. More significantly, the same Blueprint pattern is shown to match the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Temple of Jerusalem, the Greek Parthenon, Roman Pantheon and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, among others.

Supported by an impressive array of historical research and scientific analysis, the Venus Blueprint geometry is then used to unlock the original purpose of these temples. Used for its resonant properties, it had the power to enhance entheogenic ritual and help induce religious visions. As the ancient “temple template” for a global Vedic empire, this Blueprint was once the key to enlightenment, liberating the gods within.

In the end, the Venus Blueprint emerges as perhaps the single most important symbol in human history. Indeed, it is our best evidence yet that an ancient harmonic science did exist and became the inspiration behind the Vedas and many other religions. Through it, one can sense the light behind all religions straining to shine through--a beautiful musical light founded on celestial cycles and the universal harmonic principles of nature.



His Facebook page on the book is fascinating and he updates it often. Merrick has other books and papers and is a well-informed researcher and original thinker in my opinion.

He posted this NASA video about the upcoming Transit of Venus on June 5-6th which I enjoyed:


Published on Mar 26, 2012 by SunEarthDay

NASA's Transit of Venus Sun-Earth Day Event!

This year will be the last Transit of Venus to be seen in our lifetime. The next will not occur until 2117. To mark the occasion, NASA will set up a live telecast of the event from Hawaii which is the best place to view it. During the six hours a number of video clips were contracted to highlight the science behind the Transit and the culture and history of Hawaii.

I'm looking forward to this book coming out.

very cool! s&f for you!

ever since i first heard of rossln chapel (chapel?) ive been fascinated by it!
there are many religious 'hints' throughout the whole complex.
they say the builders just stopped buildin it,thus the unfinished look. but,many scholars say it is a reproduction of the ruins of solomon's temple in jerusalem! cool stuff check it out.
i will definately check out this guys web site
thanx for the post!

SF for sharing this. I have never heard of this, but it sounds very interesting. Now that I've read this I can't wait until it comes out, haven't been interested in a book coming out since PeoniIn Love by Lisa Cee

Thank you for sharing that!

Seems to finish some puzzles on a few things I have been contemplating.

Very good find here!

I also suggest Secret History of the World by Mark Booth

There is so much more than watching stars to learn science!

Also, Saturn is the Lord of the Rings.

Ever wonder why an apple is associated with Venus?
Cut it in half and you will see a five pointed star in a circle.

Hmm what really hit Newton in the head? LoL, exciting times are coming!

You have posted something similar before I believe. What are you suggesting?

I'm new at exploring this subject matter. But it seems to me that the star within a circle is used in Satanic ritual. Is that the case?

The fruit of the knowledge of evil I guess it represents.

You know we are psychoanalyzing beliefs held by people who lived in the dark ages and before that mystic beliefs of the ancient world that where ignorant to say the least. Anybody today practicing this sort of nonsense has no excuse for believing in such crap. If elites really did, I would be taking full advantage of the situation and be running this planet in about a month.

If I'm understanding you correctly, I disagree with you.

My research indicates to me that planet earth is rediscovering ancient knowledge that is associated with advanced technology - the "dark ages" weren't dark for the elite. This is advanced technology always known, kept secret, and exclusively used by the elite, but suppressed, by coercion, from the people.

Then your research would show that what the elites focused on back then and today as well, "more than ever" I should state too is, "Empire" :how to biuld it :how to maintain it :how to secure it... for their benefit, alone. The only ancient knowledge that matters dating back to Babylon. "Empire" is also called "Enterprise" btw. Maybe that is what you mean by,


"the "dark ages" weren't dark for the elite. This is advanced technology always known, kept secret, and exclusively used by the elite, but suppressed, by coercion, from the people."


I always tell folks who think the elites dance around in robed hoods worshiping the devil, usually hardcore Alex the con Jones fans.

(( No elite unless they are completely barking mad cares about the occult. There is no money to be made in the occult :practicing it :preserving it or otherwise. It's about money, not mythology nor ideological or religious conspiracy.

Those are the facts. That's reality, and it is what it is. Everything else is just a distraction, and the top economic elite class counts on those distractions to stay flush with cash and in power while the rest of us get taken for a ride to the cleaners where our pockets are picked clean and saddled with consumer debt. Debt the elites hold the paper on.

If you think they have time to sit around worshiping the devil you have another thing coming. They worship a god called Money and their temple is called "How to Make More Money." ))

One does not rule out the other. The occult can be used for both good and evil. They use it for evil to help them achieve their monetary/power goals.

Read Stewart Swerdlow's Blue Blood, True Blood: Conflict & Creation - A Personal Story, especially the chapter "Blood-Ritual & Ceremony."

how is it that all these bronze age then iron age cultures knew that the morning star was actually a Planet now known as Venus... my history recollections are that those cultures did have a reverence for this wandering star but not from a perspective of the Orbit of Venus/morning star


good entertainment & story weaving on the author's part


 


my own analysis suggests that this Mount Meru is actually the galactic center

Merrick has posted the following on his Facebook page for the book.




The Shekinah pillar in Scotland's 15th-century Rosslyn chapel is a symbol for the Hebrew goddess Asherah (or Ashtarot). Descended from the Phoenician Ashtar and Babylonian Ishtar, the Shekinah identifies the feminine presence of the deified evening star of Venus in the chapel.

The Shekinah's octagonal shape represents the 8-year resonance cycle of Venus with Earth while its eight pentagram "stars" represent the planet's five synodic periods. The resulting orbital geometry is the pentagonal rose-line or "rosslyn" of Venus.

Sitting on the stars are 13 cherubs, each playing a musical instrument, save for their leader Eros (Cupid). He holds a five-line musical staff, pointing to B with his right hand and A, C with his left as if about to shoot an arrow. In this way, he is identifying B as the point of symmetry and "bullseye" of the 7-step A Major scale.

This musical symbolism extends into the "musical cubes" carved in the gothic arches above. Each cube corresponds to a specific cymatic resonance pattern and musical tone. A melody can then be found by vibrating sand on a similar square plate at specific frequencies to match each of the musical cubes. For example, the first musical cube corresponds to the cymatic pattern for the musical note B.

Since there are two manmade beehives carved into steeples located on the roof either side of the Shekinah pillar, this musical symbolism appears to be a musical pun equating the tone "B" with the children of Venus - the "Bee."

As an ancient fertility symbol for Venus, the B=Bee pun may have to do with the frequency at which bees flap their wings, which is around B-240 hertz (the step above A-216 in Universal tuning). Furthermore, when Rosslyn is heated to the gestation temperature of a beehive (33.88°C / 93°F), the entire chapel will resonate synchronously with A-432. It is as if the entire chapel was intended as a kind of musical hive or womb for spiritual birth and rebirth.

So it is that the Shekinah pillar is not only a Hebrew fertility symbol, but also evidence for a much older harmonic science of sacred spaces. Indeed, the resonance pattern of Venus appears to have once been a Vedic temple template used to resonate the mind and help one become "born again."


When I saw the word "Shekinah" I remembered Freeman drawing a relationship between Shekinah and the "Shock and Awe" that Rumsfeld talked about in relation to Gulf War 1.

Here is another one:


My interest in Venus did not begin with the study of astronomy, mythology, symbolism or temple acoustics. It began with the study of harmonics and vibratory resonance patterns, particularly as they appear in plants and animals.

When I first learned that Venus traces an orbital rose pattern in the sky over eight years, I knew it must be due to the physics of resonance at work in the formation of the early solar system. Studying the spacing of the orbits, I found that a calm damping region in the solar heliosphere exists between Earth and Venus and that it corresponds to a logarithmic golden mean. Observing the same phenomena in the harmonic formation of a vibrating string, it is this damping region that appears to be responsible for the rose star orbital pattern of Venus.

In fact, this same rose star can be reproduced by vibrating a plate of sand or a cup of water using a musical 3:2 "perfect fifth" ratio. Known as the science of "cymatics," the reflection of harmonic waves within a container is what brings coherence and order to any vibrating medium. In the case of our solar system, gravity is the container and plasma was the medium long before it ever condensed into the planets. This is the real physics behind the Rig-Veda and the Pythagorean philosophy of Musica Universalis or "Music of the Spheres."

Biological life is no different, just on a smaller scale. Liquid water organizes itself into tetrahedral groups that form into icosahedral clusters and then larger pentagonal superclusters. Combined with Carbon-12, this geometry acts as a template for the organization of the liquid-crystal DNA molecule, clearly evident in an axial or top-down view of the helix. At the macro scale of life, this manifests in many ways from the seed pattern of an apple to the five plates of the human cranium.

Pentagonal geometry is how Nature most often organizes itself. This is because it is the path of least resistance and the most stable geometry, easily able to nest within itself. This in turn is due to the golden ratio constant found in the interference pattern of a pentagram. Each intersection of the pentagram is in fact a golden section while the golden ratio itself derives from the square root of five: (1+√5)/2 = 1.618033...

The mythology of Venus is as much about this divine proportion as it is its orbital pattern or solar transit. Awareness of this natural constant was known much earlier than historians will admit, built into temples and inspiring thoughts of God. For it was the study of harmony in nature that was the first Science and the patterns of resonance that were the first principles of Religion.




Does anyone know the meaning of the notations for "Axial View of DNA Helix"? I'm having trouble even reading them, not to mention understanding them. I've requested a blow-up of the graphic on Merrick's Facebook page.

Merrick has been interviewed on Red Ice Radio:






Richard Merrick - Hour 1 - The Venus Blueprint
May 24, 2012

Richard Merrick is an award-winning pioneer in the high-tech industry, developing sound- and language-recognition systems, graphics and animation engines, and AI game engines designed to mirror and mimic human behavior. He retired in 2006 to further develop his theory of music perception, called harmonic interference theory. In addition to writing several books on topics related to harmonic science, he has written for Nexus and Caduceus magazines and has spoken as a guest lecturer at Rosslyn chapel in Scotland. In this program Richard talks about his new book "The Venus Blueprint: Uncovering the Ancient Science of Sacred Spaces". The book presents evidence that the orbital resonance pattern of Venus was used as a "temple template" to design psychoacoustical chambers capable of focusing and controlling entheogenic communion. The book has been released just in time for the Venus Transit of June 5-6th, 2012. This special event will not occur again until another 105 years.
