Where to look? Starting with the Piri Reis map, one can get a pretty nice match using the Becker-Hagens grid. After playing around with the scripts, aligning various grids to various major landmarks including the Great Pyramids, I recalled an interesting passage from Umberto Eco’s book Foucault’s Pendulum:
Now we had the entire modern age filled with industrious moles tunneling through the earth, spying on the planet from below. But there had to be something else, another venture the Baconians had set in motion, whose results, whose stages were before everyone’s eyes, though no one had noticed them…The ground had been punctured and the deep strata tested, but the Celts and the Templars had not confined themselves to digging wells; they had planted their stations and aimed them straight to the heavens, to communicate from megalith to megalith, and to catch the influences of the stars.
The idea came to Belbo during a night of insomnia. He leaned out the window and saw in the distance, above the roofs of Milan, the lights of the steel tower of the Italian Radio, the great city antenna. A moderate, prudent Babel. And he understood. “The Eiffel Tower,” he said to us the next morning. “Why didn’t we think of it before? The metal megalith, the menhir of the last Celts, the hollow spire taller than all Gothic spires. What need did Paris have of this useless monument? It’s the celestial probe, the antenna that collects information from every hermetic valve stuck into the planet’s crust: the statues of Easter Island; Machu Picchu; the Statue of Liberty, conceived first by the initiate Lafayette; the obelisk of Luxor; the highest tower of Tomar; the Colossus of Rhodes, which still transmits from the depths of a harbor that no one can find; the temples of the Brahman jungle; the turrets of the Great Wall; the top of Ayers Rock; the spires of Strasbourg, which so delighted the initiate Goethe; the faces of Mount Rushmore — how much the initiate Hitchcock understood! — and the TV antenna of the Empire State Building. And tell me to what empire this creation of American initiates refers if not the empire of Rudolf of Prague! The Eiffel Tower picks up signals from underground and compares them with what comes from the sky. And who is it who gave us the first, terrifying movie image of the Tour Eiffel? Rene Clair, in Paris qui dort. Rene Clair, R.C.”
The entire history of science had to be reread. Even the space race became comprehensible, with those crazy satellites that did nothing but photograph the crust of the globe to localize invisible tensions, submarine tides, currents of warmer air. And speak among themselves, speak to the Tower, to Stonehenge….
Check out the book, it’s interesting and stocked with clues and secrets hidden in plain sight for those with eyes to see. Basic plot revolves around three intellectuals stumbling upon a Templar conspiracy to jack into the earth grid and thereby attain ultimate power, a conspiracy initiated six hundred years ago and awaiting a time when technology would be sufficient to make use of these gridpoints.
That the Eiffel Tower might be on a grid point seems logical, and with the Python scripts wouldn’t take much time to test. Inputs were as follows:
Latitude of lock coordinate? 48.858209
Longitude of lock coordinate? 2.294359
Bingo! With one dodecahedron vertex on Paris, the other grid points aligned with the North and South poles, the two major Piri Reis map gridpoints, the Hawaiian Islands, and Mecca. The chances of this are pretty slim, so I would say with certainty that Paris was intentionally built on a major gridpoint. Here is the output:
Click here for map comparisons (this compares the Piri Reis map to a simpler plot created with PhiGrid instead of Google Earth because for this illustration it makes the points easier to see. The PhiGrid website is gone, but here is a copy of the PhiGrid software). You can download the KML showing a dodecahedron grid aligned to Paris and open it with Google Earth to see for yourself. The Becker-Hagens grid aligned to Paris may also be downloaded.
The calculated coordinates are close enough for horseshoes, off just a little perhaps due to either the rotational pole having wandered slightly or the calculations not taking into account the earth being a slightly oblate spheroid — most likely both.
The one shortcoming of the Becker-Hagens grid is that it has only one alignment. Perhaps there are other alignments. Before the Great Flood, the earth’s pole was located somewhere in middle to northern Hudson Bay, so the earth grid back then was aligned differently. In fact, it could wander over a period of several hundred or thousand years after a major pole shift before it settles into its stable configuration we know today. Different ancients sites built at different times may therefore be aligned to different grids due to the shifting grid alignment with shifting rotational pole orientation.
The ancients, if they were aware of these grids, would need a flexible way of calculating what gridpoints at one period in time correspond with gridpoints at another period in time — in fact, in the Becker-Hagens article linked above there is mention of a globe contraption with an adjustible grid cage over a sphere:
...it may very well be possible these were used to calculate grid shifts over time, which would make sense only if gridpoints can be used for teleportation both through space and through time.
So Paris is on the grid. Perhaps other major landmarks are located on other grids. These other grids could be other Platonic shapes or perhaps the same shape but different alignment.
