They Say HAARP Alaska is Closing

HAARP, Gakona, Alaska

Over the past year and a half, there have been many articles stating that the U.S. Air Force will be closing the HAARP station in Gakona, Alaska. Here is one such article, from the Alaska Dispatch News:

Air Force plans to pull plug on Alaska’s controversial HAARP facility

Here is a quote from the article:

“Last summer the facility was temporarily shut down, but Ahtna Facility Services took over the operations and maintenance Sept. 30. But the Air Force says it can’t afford the $4 to $5 million a year its costs to run the site, the most powerful ionospheric heater in the world.”

Let’s review. The Air Force says it can’t afford the $4 to $5 million a year it costs to maintain the site. I find that very hard to believe. Since 9/11, the U.S. has been involved in ongoing war in the Middle East, which has cost at least $1 trillion dollars. They can afford perpetual war, but not a facility that costs $5 million a year. Yeah, right.

The only reason they would be closing down this facility is if they had something better in another location.


The Harmonics of the Higgs

By now, most people who have even a passing interest in science have heard of the Higgs Boson. Recently, I decided to check the harmonics of the reported mass for this particle. But first, let’s talk briefly about what the Higgs boson is.

The following excerpt is from Wikipedia, but there are lots of articles on the web about this subject:

“The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle initially theorized in 1964, whose discovery was announced at CERN on 4 July 2012. The discovery has been called “monumental” because it appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field, which is pivotal to the Standard Model and other theories within particle physics. It would explain why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless, and why the weak force has a much shorter range than the electromagnetic force. The discovery of a Higgs boson should allow physicists to finally validate the last untested area of the Standard Model’s approach to fundamental particles and forces, guide other theories and discoveries in particle physics, and potentially lead to developments in “new” physics.”

“This unanswered question in fundamental physics is of such importance that it led to a search of more than 40 years for the Higgs boson and finally the construction of one of the world’s most expensive and complex experimental facilities to date, the Large Hadron Collider, able to create Higgs bosons and other particles for observation and study. On 4 July 2012, it was announced that a previously unknown particle with a mass between 125 and 127 GeV/c2 (134.2 and 136.3 amu) had been detected; physicists suspected at the time that it was the Higgs boson.”

On 14 March, 2013, “a Higgs boson of mass ~125 GeV was tentatively confirmed by CERN, although unclear as yet which model the particle best supports or whether multiple Higgs bosons exist.”

Let’s look at the harmonics of the mass of the Higgs Boson, 125 GeV.

Harmonics of the Higgs Boson
     Harmonics of the Higgs Boson

We see that the mass of the Higg’s Boson is tuned to Light Reciprocal.

Bruce Cathie wrote about Light Reciprocal many times in his books. But, I’ll give you a short review. What we call the Light Reciprocal harmonic is simply the reciprocal of the Speed of Light.

The maximum value for the Speed of Light at the Earth’s surface, at the equator, is 144000 nautical miles/grid second. In harmonics we ignore zeros to the left or right of the decimal.

Therefore, Light Reciprocal would be 1/144 = 694444444444.

That’s the same harmonic that is derived from the mass of the Higgs boson. Let’s take the next step.

If you take the value of Gravity Acceleration in the physics textbooks and convert it from meters per second squared to degrees per grid second squared, you get Light Reciprocal. Here is a screenshot from the Gridpoint Atlas software that illustrates this.

Conversion of Gravity Acceleration
Conversion of Gravity Acceleration

The above screenshot shows that Gravity Acceleration is converting to a different Light Reciprocal value, but the conversion is the same for whatever value of Gravity Acceleration you choose.

Since Light Reciprocal is a direct conversion of Gravity Acceleration, the mass of the Higgs boson is really tuned to the Gravity harmonic. Why is that significant?

Particle Physicists have been looking for a way to tie gravity into the Standard Model. Some physicists include the graviton in the Standard Model and some do not, but they readily admit they have never been able to detect a gravity wave. The graviton is a hypothetical boson, or force carrier, that transmits the force of gravity. They think it should be there, but they haven’t detected it yet.

Then there is the theory of Quantum Gravity which seeks to describe the force of gravity within the framework of Quantum Mechanics. The most popular approaches to the problem of quantum gravity are string theory and loop quantum gravity. We currently think of gravity in terms of the General Theory of Relativity, but that was formulated within the framework of classical physics. Therein lies a problem. Classical physics and quantum mechanics are radically different. One cannot consistently couple a classical system to a quantum one.

If you take a different approach and look at this problem harmonically, you see a direct connection with Gravity or Light Reciprocal. You don’t need to wait for a graviton to appear in a detector at CERN. The harmonic relationship to gravity is already there with the Higgs Boson.

However, I understand why they want to detect a graviton at CERN. The Large Hadron Collider is the most incredible machine ever built. We should continue to use it and get the most out of it. And frankly, it’s high time that big money is spent on big science. I mean, we pay professional athletes and Hollywood celebrities an obscene amount of money to provide entertainment. And while entertainment is nice, why shouldn’t the same kind of money be allocated for scientific research that leads to the advancement of our knowledge and new technology?

Let’s now look at the Higgs Field. The reported mass of the Higgs Field is 264 GeV. The Higgs Field is unique as it has a value even in its resting state. In other words, the value of the Higgs Field lying there in the background is always non-zero. This is how it is able to break symmetry and give mass to particles.

Harmonically, let’s look at the number of 264 GeV.

Harmonics of the Higgs Field
    Harmonics of the Higgs Field

the mass of the Higgs Field is tuned to the Energy harmonic, and it’s the Energy harmonic that corresponds to the Speed of Light in a Vacuum.

I sincerely hope we continue to do this kind of work in the future. I’m all for the righteous use of big science. But at the same time, I hope the day is not over where significant scientific discoveries can still be made by a single person working with a tabletop full of equipment.

At least, I hope those days aren’t over.


Will Gridpoint Atlas Plot the Grid in My Backyard?

By far, the most common question I get is whether the Gridpoint Atlas software can be used to plot the grid in this place or that place. Let me answer that once and for all.

Yes, Gridpoint Atlas will plot the grid anywhere in the world.

Here are some other common questions.

Question: Will Gridpoint Atlas tell me if my house sits on a grid line?

Answer: Yes, it plots the grid anywhere in the world.

Question: Will Gridpoint Atlas tell me if a grid line runs through my grandmother’s garden?

Answer: Yes, it will plot the grid anywhere in the world, even your grandmother’s garden.

Question: I think there is a dimensional portal in my back bedroom. Will Gridpoint Atlas tell me if that bedroom sets on a grid point?

Answer: Yes, it will plot the grid anywhere in the world.

Now you know.


The Harmonics of B Flat (Bb)

Recently, I was watching Down From the Mountain, a Bluegrass concert of songs from the movie, O Brother Where Art Thou. At the beginning of the concert film, they had footage of the various musicians during rehearsal. Emmylou Harris was among the musicians and something she said caught my ear.

She was talking to Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss about Roy Huskey Jr., a bass player who died in 1997. Huskey has Synesthesia and saw musical notes as colors. At 20:33 in the film, Emmylou said,

“But you know what Roy Huskey said, that B Flat was the last note in the universe and it’s very very very black.”

That statement got my interest.

I did some searching on the internet and found that in 2003, scientists reported that the black hole in the Perseus cluster was emitting B Flat. Here is an excerpt from a post on the NASA website from November 17, 2003, Interpreting the Song Of a Distant Black Hole

“Using the piano keyboard’s middle C note as a reference point for the middle of the piano key music range, Fabian’s team determined the note is a B -flat. On a piano, the B-flat nearest middle C is located midway between 1/8th and 2/8th of an octave away. In musical terminology, this B flat is 1-1/2 steps from middle C.

The Perseus cluster black hole’s B-flat, by contrast, is 57 octaves below middle C or one million, billion times lower than the lowest sound audible to the human ear! In terms of frequency (the time it takes a single sound wave to pass by), the lowest sounds a person can hear is 1/20th of a second. The Perseus black hole’s sound waves have a frequency of 10 million years!”

At this point, I wanted to see if B Flat had a harmonic connection. So, I did some checking. It turns out that if you convert the value of B Flat, you will get the harmonic of the Speed of Light.

I’ll explain the calculations in this screenshot:

The Harmonics of B Flat

The Harmonics of B Flat (Bb)

If you look up the frequency for B Flat (Bb 4) just below Middle C on a piano, you will find its value is 466.16 Hz. However, to check for harmonics you have to convert this value.

1 Hz is 1 cycle per second. But, what kind of second are we talking about? A second based on a 24 hour day or a day broken into 24 periods. To work in grid units, you have to use a 27 hour day, or a day broken into 27 periods. Using the Gridpoint Atlas software, I converted the value.

The first value of 466.16 is in normal time or hertz. I have labeled this as normal time – actual.

The second value of 414.3644444444444 is after I have converted it to grid time. I have labeled this as grid time – actual.

I took the grid time value and checked the harmonic. If I shifted the value slightly to 414.3596158564265 (grid time – calculated), I found it would yield the Maximum value for the Speed of Light or 144000.0000.

If you then convert that value from grid time back to normal time, you will get the fourth value, 466.1545678384798, which I have labeled as normal time – calculated.

What all this means is that the value of B Flat that yields the harmonic is 466.154 which is slightly off from the published value of 466.16.

I made two sine wave sound files, one with a frequency of 466.16 and one with a frequency of 466.154 and then listened to them. The human ear can’t tell the difference between the two.

Interestingly enough, if you check the values of all B Flats on the piano, Bb 1 through Bb 8, you will find that each yields the harmonic of the Speed of Light. Although it’s not always the same Speed of Light harmonic.

Perhaps the musical scale should be centered around B Flat, rather than Middle C.


What is the Difference Between 30′, 7.5′, 6′ and 1′ Grid Lines?

One of the most common questions I am asked is what is the difference between 30′, 7.5′, 6′ and 1′ grid lines? Here is what Bruce Cathie and I learned over time about this subject.

Originally, when Bruce was starting his research into the World Grid and harmonics, he plotted sightings of UFOs on a map of New Zealand. After he had plotted a lot of sightings, he noticed that he could draw a set of lines that would connect the sightings. These lines formed a grid pattern and by measuring, he found that the lines were 30′ apart. When I say 30′, I mean 30 minutes of arc or 30 nautical miles.

Here is what his original map looked like:

Original World Grid Map Showing UFO Sightings Over New Zealand

Original World Grid Map from 1965 Showing UFO Sightings Over New Zealand

In the original map, UFO sightings are shown by circles on the map. As you can see, some sightings were on grid lines, some were on grid points.

In time, Bruce learned that he could further subdivide the 30′ grid into a system of 7.5′ grid lines. After much study, he found that the 7.5′ grid lines were also valid. Since 7.5 x 4 = 30, the 30′ grid divided evenly into 7.5′ segments.

In 1989, I began working with Bruce and in 1993 we released the first version of Gridpoint Atlas, our software which calculates harmonics and calculates the World Grid. In 1993, we could calculate grid points anywhere in the world, but we couldn’t plot them on a digital map until around 2000. Today, our software creates ESRI-compatible and Google Earth-compatible grid files. You can view the grid files in ESRI software or in Google Earth. Having these capabilities helped the research progress immensely.

Through decades of research, we have found that there are 30′, 7.5′ and 6′ grid lines. We feel that these are the major grid lines of the grid. We have also found that 1′ grid lines are valid and very important, but we consider these to be minor grid lines.

Now, the World Grid is infinite and there are trillions and trillions of points all over the Earth. We feel that the major grid lines can be subdivided down into increments of multiple seconds, but we do not know exactly what increments are valid.

If you work with the Gridpoint Atlas software and plot 30′, 7.5′, 6′ and 1′ grid lines, you will be dealing with the most important ones and you will find that the majority of the sites around the world, including ancient structures, monuments, scientific installations, particle accelerators and many other facilities will be found with these grid lines running through them.

Let’s look at one of the modern sites that sits on several grid lines.

30', 7.5', 6', and 1' grid lines going through Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

30′, 7.5′, 6′, and 1′ grid lines going through Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

In the above screenshot, we see Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is the headquarters of the Mormon church. Here is one example where 30′, 7.5′, 6′ and 1′ grid lines line up on the same line and run through a facility. On the left, the oval-shaped structure is the original tabernacle that was first built on this site. On the right, is the most recent tabernacle that was built afterwards and is the one that has all the grid lines running through it. This is notable because it is the only religious site in the world we have found to have the characteristic of so many grid lines lining up and running through it. Very unusual. Obviously, the Mormons were led to this place for a reason. This is no accident.

In the Gridpoint Atlas software, we also allow the user to enter his own grid resolution, just as long as it’s a harmonic of 360 degrees, meaning the value has to be be able to be divided into 360 an even number of times. This allows people to do their own research and come to their own conclusions.

You may wonder why there isn’t just one set of grid lines, say 7.5′ apart and that’s it? Why all the others? Well, I don’t know. Something greater than you and I created it. And all evidence shows that the grid is made up of an amazing lattice of major and minor lines, some being very fine. This lattice creates the world that we live in, interact with and see everyday.

Now ancient structures, ancient and modern monuments, scientific installations, government installations and particle accelerators are not the only things sitting on major grid lines. There are a lot of people’s homes that sit on major grid lines and grid points all over the world. For example, John and Jane Doe who live at 123 Main St. in Anytown, USA don’t know that their house sits on a major grid point. And their relatives who live in a neighboring state don’t know that a major grid line runs through their farm. However, they may feel better because of it. I don’t know but it surely has some effect. We just can’t definitely say what it is.

When you plot the grid and see what sites around the world fall on it, it becomes clear that the knowledge of harmonics and the grid is in use today as it was thousands of years ago. It’s just it’s used by scientists, government workers and others who still keep the information from the public because they feel they don’t have a right to know. Bruce Cathie was even told by one of these people that, “it wouldn’t be right for the public to know. It would hurt them.” That’s ridiculous and I’ll tell you why.

If this knowledge was allowed to be used by the public, the only people it would hurt are those who have kept it secret from the public. Because it would threaten their monopoly of power. That’s it plain and simple.


Misconceptions about Bruce Cathie’s Atomic Test Calculations

A reader emailed me recently and asked if it was possible for a nuclear weapon to go off in Charleston, South Carolina in the late fall. This person was probably asking about it because of comments U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R – S.C.) made to reporters in Goose Creek, South Carolina on Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

Here is the report from the CBS news affiliate in Charlotte:

“Graham told reporters in Goose Creek on Tuesday that taking action against Syria in response to the situation is not a question of yes or no, but rather a question of bad or worse choices.”

“He says if there is no U.S. response, Iran will not believe America’s resolve to block Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Graham also says those nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists could result in a bomb coming to Charleston Harbor.”

The link to the full article is at the following address:

Graham: Nukes In Hands Of Terrorists Could Result In Bomb Coming To Charleston Harbor

Now, let’s get back to the email I received. The reader is specifically asking me because of what Bruce Cathie published in his book Harmonic 33 in 1968 about atomic tests. He had been watching the atomic bomb tests done by the French at Moruroa Atoll and noticed that whenever an atomic test was successful, the same harmonics of the Speed of Light, Gravity, and the Earth’s Magnetic Field were present that were built into the World Grid and many ancient structures.

I’m not revealing any classified secrets here, this was first published by Bruce in 1968. Here is an excerpt from page 74 of his book, Harmonic 33:

“Is it possible to fight an atomic war on this basis? The whole thing would be completely illogical because both countries involved would naturally have computers calculating in advance just where and when each and every bomb would have to be placed if it was to explode. It is interesting to note that the American scientists can calculate in advance when the Chinese will detonate a bomb. If someone were stupid enough to push the button and start a war, then the country with the best defence would probably be the victor. Probably this is the reason for deploying submarines around the world, well stocked with atomic rockets. They could wait undetected over a long period, and fire their rockets as the Sun moved into position.”

If you want to learn more about this, I refer you to Bruce Cathie’s books. He wrote about the subject in each of the books he published over the years.

Over the 23 years Bruce Cathie and I worked together, we had many conversations on this subject. And over the years, I have noticed that people’s reactions to this information was often based on a misunderstanding of what Bruce originally wrote. Therefore, I’m going to clear this up.

Here are the top three misconceptions I have heard:

  1. Nuclear weapons can only be exploded on grid points.
  2. Nuclear weapons can only be exploded at certain places around the world.
  3. Nuclear weapons are just like a firecracker or a stick of dynamite. You just drop it and it goes off. Or you just place the nuke, push the button, and it goes off.

All of these are incorrect. The harmonic component of the detonation is what the public has not known about for over 60 years. They don’t know because that missing piece has been kept from them on purpose.

Let me give you a disclaimer about Bruce and I. We felt that if you wanted to build one of these devices and get it to work, you had to know three things, or at least have a team of people who collectively knew and understood these three things:

  1. Nuclear Physics
  2. How to build an atomic weapon
  3. Harmonics

Bruce didn’t know and I don’t know anything about items 1 and 2. More importantly, we haven’t ever wanted to know anything about items 1 and 2. Frankly, anyone who knows all three things should only work for one of the governments, because this information shouldn’t be walking around out there unless you are part of some government organization.

Having said that, Bruce understood and I understand item 3, the harmonic component in this equation.

Bruce learned about this by observing the French atomic tests. He felt people had a right to know, so he published the information in all of his books. He was later contacted by multiple 3-letter agencies, the most important being the CIA. The CIA tried to buy him off and shut him up. He refused to go to work for them, so they had all his books destroyed. In fact for many years, he was unable to get any book published.

Let’s get back to the misconceptions. All three are incorrect. Nuclear weapons can be detonated anywhere. However, for a given location, the sun has to be in a position relative to that detonation location such that, the geometric harmonics are present for the nuke to go off and cause massive collateral damage. If the harmonics are not present, you won’t have massive damage of an area and will probably (we think) just get a large release of radiation.

Now, that’s all we know on the subject. Bruce Cathie mentioned it in each of his books, but in his personal research, he never worked on it again. He felt there were far more interesting things in the world to look at than this topic. I feel the same way.

Let’s look at modern day terrorism. Could a terrorist get their hands on a nuke and detonate it in a major U.S. city or even Charleston harbor? First they would have to get the nuke. There have been reports over the years that 100 suitcase nukes went missing from the former Soviet Union years ago. No one knows where they are. So, let’s say someone could get their hands on one of these if they were well-financed. Then what?

They would have to have very specialized knowledge in order to pull this off. Frankly, I don’t think a terrorist, with minimal education, just a crazed religious fervor and large bankroll, could get one of these things and get it to detonate. In fact, I don’t think it will ever happen. If they did, they would have had to have very specialized help from someone on the inside. Or at least someone who used to be on the inside of some specialized government scientific group.

Getting back to Senator Lindsey Graham’s comment, could a nuke go off in Charleston harbor? Only if the person or persons detonating it had very specialized knowledge. Remember detonating a nuclear device is not like lighting a stick of dynamite. With a nuke, you just don’t push a button and it goes off and levels a city.

For the skeptics out there, you don’t have to write and disagree with me. I’ve heard it all before. If you think what I’m telling you is ridiculous, then why would the CIA have tried to buy Cathie off and shut him up years ago? Why did they have all his books destroyed?

Think about that.

Update 21 November, 2013: It is pretty much 100% guaranteed that the nuclear capability has evolved since Bruce originally published this information in 1968. I am sure they have miniaturized the technology and they may even evolved it to the point where the same conditions do not apply. Of course, the laws of physics haven’t changed and the rules of harmonics haven’t changed, but undoubtedly the technology has. As I mentioned earlier, this is all I know on the subject as it is not been my focus.


How to Take the Coordinate of a Structure from Google Earth

When you are doing research on various sites around the world, you want to get the most accurate coordinates you can. However, in talking with many people, it’s apparent that some do not know the proper way to do this.

I will show you a classic example, the Pyramid of Khufu from the Giza Complex in Cairo, Egypt. Here is a screenshot from Google Earth:

Pyramid of Khufu, Giza Complex, Cairo, Egypt
Pyramid of Khufu, Giza Complex, Cairo, Egypt

A lot of people would take the coordinate of the apex of the pyramid. However, that would not be correct. This is because the satellite was not directly above (over the center) when the image was taken. Therefore, the apex of the pyramid is off center. However, the solution is very simple. Don’t use the apex.

Have a look at this screenshot.

Take the coordinate from the center of the base
Take the coordinate from the center of the base

Instead, you want to take the coordinate of the center of the structure at the base, not the apex or in the case of a building, not a point on the roof.

If you follow this rule, the coordinates will not change as Google Earth updates its satellite imagery.


Gridpoint Atlas Software is Still Available for Purchase

I have had a lot of questions recently about the Gridpoint Atlas software and whether it was still available for purchase. The answer is YES.

Despite the passing of Bruce Cathie, the Gridpoint Atlas software will still be available now and in the future. Although Bruce and I worked on it together for 23 years, I was the software developer and will continue to upgrade it as new findings are made.

If you are interested, you can learn about the software here:

Thanks for all the inquiries.

Bruce Leonard Cathie 1930 – 2013

Bruce Leonard Cathie 1930 - 2013
Photo: The Harmonic Code (DVD)

My great friend, Bruce Cathie, passed away on June 2, 2013 at North Shore Hospice in Auckland, New Zealand. He went peacefully after a lengthy illness.

After reading a couple of his books, I started corresponding with him in 1988. We became friends and started working together in 1989. It was a rare friendship in that we always got along and never had a disagreement, about anything. We were always on the same page.

Over the years, Bruce was my mentor and very graciously taught me everything that I now know on the subject of harmonics. He never grew tired of my endless questions and had a knack for explaining difficult concepts in language that I could understand. Although I must admit that some of his concepts took me years to fully understand.

His genius and his legacy was that he drew correlations between past and modern-day events, ancient structures, UFO sightings, then put them all-together and uncovered the World Grid system that has been a part of this planet from the very beginning. Much to the disdain of the academic world, he extended Einstein’s famous equation. However, they were just jealous they hadn’t done the same. He also created a table of Unified Harmonics that has stood the test of time.

Over the years, many tried to silence him. At times, he and his family had to endure many hardships as his published works drew the attention of intelligence agencies around the world. Their scientists and agents were eager to keep this information out of public view as it had been hidden for thousands of years. However, he ignored their threats, continued on with his work and always published his findings. He felt the public had the right to know. He was a true maverick and one day the world will realize the full extent of his genius.

I must remind people that in the 20th century, he was THE first grid researcher. He was the one who painstakingly derived all of the information on his own. Because there were no references out there, there were no books on the subject, there were no classes taught on harmonics in the universities. Every single grid researcher that is around today came after him, because in one way or another, they were inspired by him and his work. Whether directly or indirectly.

I can say that the greatest thing I learned from my best friend was to always be secure in my own knowingness. Because that’s what he always did. No matter what anybody said, what anybody did or what anybody thought, he carried on tirelessly with his work for decades. The majority of that time working alone and with no help from anyone. Surely that is an example we can all learn from.

I will miss him greatly. I also know the legions of fans who read his books and followed his work through the years will miss him as well.

My thoughts are with his wife, Wendy, and his sons, Mark and Stephen.

My pledge is to make sure the world never forgets what he accomplished.

Diamond Light Source Spins Particles on the World Grid

Diamond Synchrotron Light Source Sits on a 1' Grid Line

Diamond Synchrotron Light Source Sits on a 1′ Grid Line

Diamond Light Source is the United Kingdom’s national synchrotron facility located in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. Its purpose is to produce intense beams of light whose special characteristics are useful in many areas of scientific research.

The synchrotron can be used to investigate the structure and properties of a wide range of materials from proteins and engineering components to conservation of archeological artifacts.

Diamond Light Source generates synchrotron light at wavelengths ranging from X-rays to the far infrared. This is also known as synchrotron radiation and is the electromagnetic radiation emitted by charged particles traveling near the speed of light. It is used in a variety of experiments to study the structure and behavior of different types of matter.

We have analyzed the particle accelerator sites worldwide and have found that the overwhelming majority sit on grid lines. In this case, the Diamond Light Source sits on a 1′ grid line. Although a 1′ grid line is what we would consider to be a minor grid line, it doesn’t mean this facility is less important than other accelerators that sit on major grid lines.


Windsor Castle Was Built on the World Grid

Windsor Castle is a medieval residence in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. It is notable for its long association with the British royal family and is also known for its architecture.

The original castle was built by William the Conqueror after the Norman invasion. Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by a succession of monarchs and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe. The castle’s lavish, early 19th-century Apartments are architecturally significant and the castle includes the 15th-century St George’s Chapel, considered to be one of the supreme achievements of English Perpendicular Gothic design.

Queen Victoria made minor changes to the castle, which became the center for royal entertainment during much of her reign. The Castle was also used as a refuge for the royal family during the bombing campaigns of the Second World War and survived a fire in 1992. It is a popular tourist attraction, a venue for hosting state visits, and the Queen’s preferred weekend home.

Windsor Castle sits on a 6' grid line

Since it was a royal residence and has enjoyed such a long history, we were curious if the castle sat on a major grid line. After plotting in Gridpoint Atlas and viewing in Google Earth, we found that it was.

Windsor castle was built on a 6′ grid line. The line is actually continuous, even though Google Earth is showing it as broken. GE sometimes does that when you zoom in and out.


Huang-ti Mausoleum, Shaanxi Province, China Sits on the World Grid

Huang-ti Mausoleum in China sits on a 7.5' grid line

Huang-ti Mausoleum in China sits on a 7.5′ grid line

Ch’in Shih-huang-ti was a powerful figure in ancient Chinese history. During his rule, he unified much of China with a government that was based on the teachings of Legalism. It was under Ch’in Shih-huang-ti that much of the Great Wall of China was built, as well as a huge burial compound known as the Ch’in tomb.

To protect his state from a Hunnish tribe of people to the north known as the Hsiung Nu, Ch’in Shih-huang-ti embarked on an amazing effort to connect the walls and fortresses, created during the Warring States Period, to protect his kingdom. The result was the Great Wall of China.

Another structure of astonishing proportions built under Ch’in Shih-huang-ti was a massive burial compound, known as the Ch’in Tomb. It was discovered byarchaeologists in 1974, near the present-day city of Xiam. The tomb, encompassing 20 square miles (50 sq km), was a huge subterranean complex, landscaped to resemble a low, wooded mountain. In the chamber, 6,000 life-sized terracotta soldiers were found in battle formation, and in adjoining chambers thousands of smaller figurines were found. A stable of skeletonized horses was discovered and the remains of bronze gilded chariots accompanied them. Valuable gems, jade carving of trees and animals, as well as silks were also unearthed. The emperor’s actual burial tomb has yet to be excavated. It was purported that it took 700,000 men more than 36 years to complete.

When you look at the accompanying screenshot, you see that the tomb was built on a 7.5′ grid line and at one time may have been situated on a grid point. We feel that sites this close to a major grid line or point were in fact on it when they were originally built. Over time, earthquakes or plate movements may have caused the original placement to shift.


George Washington Masonic Memorial Sits on the World Grid

George Washington Masonic Memorial sits on a 7.5′ & 1′ grid lines

The George Washington Masonic National Memorial is a Masonic building and memorial located in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. It is dedicated to the memory of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was also a Mason.

The design of the tower was patterned after the ancient Lighthouse of Alexandria in Egypt, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

What’s interesting about this memorial is that it sits on 7.5′ and 1′ grid lines. Both major and minor World Grid lines are covered here.

The placement of the memorial on this site is hardly accidental.


NSA Utah Data Center Is Being Built On the World Grid

The National Security Agency (NSA) is currently constructing its new Utah Data Center in Bluffdale, Utah. Most people know that the NSA has become the largest, most covert, and most intrusive intelligence agency ever. But few know about this new data center and what kind of work they will be doing there.

Bluffdale sits in a bowl-shaped valley in the shadow of Utah’s Wasatch Range to the east and the Oquirrh Mountains to the west. It’s in the heart of Mormon country, where religious pioneers first arrived more than 160 years ago.

When completed, the $2 Billion Utah Data Center will be more than five times the size of the US Capitol and will secretly capture, store, and analyze vast quantities of words and images traveling through the world’s telecommunications networks.

The center is under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances. It’s a project of immense secrecy and its purpose is to intercept, decipher, analyze and store vast amounts of the world’s communications as they bounce down from satellites and rip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified center should be up and running by September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers, and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails, including parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and vast amounts of other digital information.

Knowing all this, we have to ask, “Why did the NSA picked this particular location to build its data center?” The site is located adjacent to Camp Williams, a U.S. military base. We know that the NSA likes to build on or near U.S. military bases. In fact, the NSA’s headquarters is located on the grounds of Fort Meade in Maryland.

I decided to plot the location in Gridpoint Atlas and view it in Google Earth. When I did, I found that a 7.5′ grid line goes right through the center of the site. Here is a screenshot of the site. You will notice that an airport used to exist at the same location.

The next screenshot shows the Google Earth satellite imagery with the data center site plan overlaid. The site plan shows the future buildings. At least those above ground. You can see that the 7.5′ grid line goes right through the center of the complex.

We can see that the selection of this site was not an accident.


Medicine Hat on the World Grid

A 7.5' grid line goes through Medicine Hat in Alberta, Canada

A 7.5′ grid line goes through Medicine Hat in Alberta, Canada

A reader reported this site to us and we decided to plot it.

Medicine Hat is a city of 61,000 people located in the southeastern part of the province of Alberta, Canada. It is situated on the Trans-Canada Highway, the eastern terminus of the Crowsnest Highway, and the South Saskatchewan River.

As far as we are concerned, the most interesting part of this area is the hill formation that can be seen in the Google Earth plot above. From the air, it appears to be in the shape of an Indian wearing a headdress. Also, a 7.5′ grid line that goes right through it.

Major grid lines going through natural land formations are actually quite a common thing. We see this often. Other examples are Stone Mountain in Georgia, USA and Ayers Rock in Australia.

You can see that the grid line actually goes through the chin/mouth area of the Indian’s head. We wonder if he’s trying to say something?

We just found this site to be interesting.


Mysterious Black Rectangle in Alaska is on the World Grid

Mysterious Black Rectangle in Alaska sits on a 7.5' grid line

Black Rectangle in Alaska sits on a 7.5′ grid line

If you fire up Google Earth and go to 62.193766, -141.262196, you will see a large black rectangle in Alaska, USA.

When I saw this rectangle, I immediately went into the Gridpoint Atlas software and plotted various resolution of grids for that area, then viewed the plots in Google Earth. I found that a 7.5′ grid line runs right through the large black rectangle.

We can speculate that this area is being censored because it’s some kind of U.S. military installation that they don’t want us to see. After all, it is in close proximity to Russia. If you look at the placemarks other people have placed on the area, you’ll see that some feel it is some kind of HAARP facility. I doubt it, since other HAARP facilities have not been censored in Google Earth. However at this point, your guess is as good as mine.

This is all speculation, but it is interesting that a major 7.5 nautical mile grid line goes right through the area.


Omega Transmitter in Australia on the World Grid

A while back, a user of the Gridpoint Atlas software informed me of a site I was not familiar with, the Omega transmitting station in Australia. Here’s the description of that facility from Wikipedia:

The Omega Transmitter is located near Woodside, Victoria, Australia at 38.481228°S 146.935294°E. It uses an umbrella antenna carried by a 432 metre high grounded lattice steel guyed mast. This mast is the highest construction in the southern hemisphere.

Construction of this station was originally planned to be built in New Zealand but after protests from anti-war protestors, it was built in Australia.

After the shutdown of the OMEGA navigation system, it was used until 2004 as a transmitter for orders to submarines on 13 kHz under the callsign VL3DEF. Until December 2008, it had been transmitting a 100 baud MSK modulated signal on 18.6 kHz. However, the station has been closed down and transmissions have now ceased. The tower remains, but the transmitting equipment is on display at the Port Albert Maritime Museum.

Here is the screenshot of the Omega transmitter from Google Earth.

Omega Transmitter in Australia was placed on a 7.5' grid line

As you can see, when I plotted the Omega station, I found that it had been placed on a 7.5′ grid line that goes through the center of the tower.


The Statue of Liberty Shines on the World Grid

Recently on a hunch, we wondered if the Statue of Liberty in New York City harbor was on the World Grid. We plotted the area and found out it was. Here’s the story.

The original Statue of Liberty was built on the Île aux Cygnes, river Seine in Paris, France. It is near the Pont de Grenelle.

The Île aux Cygnes is a man-made island in the river Seine (48°51′0″ N, 2°16′47″ E), 11.50 m high (37 feet 9 inches). Inaugurated on July 4, 1889, it looks southwest, downriver along the Seine. Its tablet bears two dates: “IV JUILLET 1776” (July 4, 1776: the United States Declaration of Independence) like the New York statue, and “XIV JUILLET 1789” (July 14, 1789: the storming of the Bastille).

The Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island in New York City harbor was a gift to the United States from the French people. It was designed by Frédéric Bartholdi and was dedicated on October 28, 1886. The statue is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue has become an icon of freedom and of the United States.

In the Gridpoint Atlas software, the first grid we plotted happened to be the one the statue was built on, the 7.5′ grid. In fact, the grid line goes right through the exact center of the statue’s base. Here is a screenshot.

The Statue of Liberty was placed on a 7.5' grid line

You can’t get any more blatant than that.

Interesting how most of these things are hiding in plain sight.


Saddam Hussein’s Babylon Palace on the World Grid

Here is another interesting plot we found with the Gridpoint Atlas software. This is Saddam Hussein’s Babylon Palace.

When Saddam Hussein rose to power in Iraq, he wanted to rebuild the ancient city of Babylon. At the time, he said that Babylon’s great palaces and the legendary Hanging Gardens of Babylon would arise from the dust. You might recall that the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

In 1982, Saddam Hussein’s workers began the work of reconstructing Babylon’s most imposing structure, the 600-room palace of King Nebuchadnezzar II. At the time, archaeologists were mortified, and said that rebuilding on top of ancient ruins did not preserve history, but desecrated it.

The original bricks, which still exist and rise two to three feet above the ground, bear ancient inscriptions praising Nebuchadnezzar. Not to be outdone, Saddam Hussein’s workers laid more than 60 million sand-colored bricks on top of the original bricks. They were inscribed with the words, “In the era of Saddam Hussein, protector of Iraq, who rebuilt civilization and rebuilt Babylon.” However, lofty words were not enough to keep the new new bricks from cracking after only ten years.

Saddam Hussein's Babylon Palace lies on a 7.5' grid line

Saddam Hussein’s Babylon Palace lies on a 7.5′ grid line

We have no idea if Saddam Hussein knew about the World Grid. Perhaps the credit for building on a major grid line should go to King Nebuchadnezzar II, for he is the constructor of the original building that stood on the grounds.


The ALBA Synchrotron on the World Grid

ALBA is a synchrotron radiation facility in Cerdanyola del Vallès near Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was constructed and is now operated by the CELLS consortium (Consortium for the Exploitation of the Synchrotron Light Laboratory), and co-financed by the Spanish and Catalan governments.

After almost ten years of planning and design by the Spanish scientific community, the project was approved in 2002. The facility was redesigned in 2004 and construction was started in 2006. The laboratory was officially opened for experiments on March, 2010.

ALBA Synchrotron Radiation Facility is centered on a 1' grid point

ALBA Synchrotron is centered on a 1′ grid point

A few months ago, we were studying the placement of all the world’s particle accelerators to see their relationships to the World Grid. After plotting the World Grid for this area in Gridpoint Atlas, we viewed the plot in Google Earth and saw what is shown above.

This is one of the more interesting plots we’ve come across. Obviously, the precise placement of the facility was no accident.


Religious Temples on the World Grid

In checking religious temples and sites on the World Grid, we have found many, many hits. Here are three examples that will be very interesting to you. The fact that they are placed on grid lines is very telling and is proof that the builders of these places had access to ancient knowledge.

7.5' grid line going through the Angkor Wat Temple in Angkor, Cambodia

7.5′ grid line going through the Angkor Wat Temple in Angkor, Cambodia

Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Angkor, Cambodia. Built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation.

It is the world’s largest religious building. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors. Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early South Indian Hindu architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers.

Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas (guardian spirits) adorning its walls.

1' grid line going through the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram, India

1′ grid line going through the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram, India

Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple is a Hindu temple located in Thiruvananthapuram, India. The shrine, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is currently run by a trust headed by the royal family of Travancore.

In June 2011, the Supreme Court directed the authorities from the archaeology department and fire services to open the secret chambers of the temple for inspection of the items kept inside. The review of the temple’s underground vaults lead to the enumeration of a vast collection of treasures that are traditionally kept under lock and key. The detailed inventory revealed gold, jewels, and other valuables, and has solidified the Padmanabhaswamy temple to be one of the wealthiest temples in India. The final estimate of wealth to said to be US$7.14 billion.

30', 7.5', 6', and 1' grid lines going through Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

30′, 7.5′, 6′, and 1′ grid lines going through Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Readers in the US will immediately recognize this as the famous Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. It is the worldwide headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), also known as the Mormon church.

Temple Square is a ten acre complex located in the center of Salt Lake City, Utah. In recent years, the usage of the name has gradually changed to include several other church facilities immediately adjacent to Temple Square. Contained within Temple Square proper are the Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake Tabernacle, Salt Lake Assembly Hall, the Seagull Monument and two visitors’ centers.

What makes this place unique is that it is positioned where four different resolution grid lines (30′, 7.5′, 6′ and 1′) line up in the same place. So far, this is the only religious site we have found to have this characteristic. This means that undoubtedly, the founders of the church had access to very advanced knowledge. People can argue whether they knew the information or were given it. Some will even say they were led to the exact place. However, that is a debate we will leave to others. All we are saying is that the placement of Temple Square could not have been an accident.


Chateaus and Palaces on the World Grid

You may have wondered if some of the world’s most famous chateaus and palaces are built on the World Grid. Many are.

We have looked at hundreds of sites and want to show three examples. Enjoy!

6' grid line going through the Chateau Azay-le-Rideau in France

6′ grid line going through the Chateau Azay-le-Rideau in France

The screenshot above is of the Chateau Azay-le-Rideau in Azay-le-Rideau, France. It was built from 1515 to 1527, and is one of the earliest French Renaissance châteaux. Built on an island in the Indre River at Azay-le-Rideau, its foundations rise straight out of the water.

The Treasurer-General of the Finances of France under King Francis I and mayor of Tours, began reconstructing Azay-le-Rideau’s earlier medieval castle, that was part of his wife’s inheritance. However, it was his wife, Philippe Lesbahy, who directed the course of the works, including its central internal staircase (escalier d’honneur) that is Azay’s greatest most remarkable feature, inspired by the staircase at Châteaudun.

As you can see, a 6′ grid line goes right through the chateau.

7.5' grid line going through the Sans Souci Palace in Potsdam, Germany

7.5′ grid line going through the Sans Souci Palace in Potsdam, Germany

The Sans-Souci Palace in Potsdam, Gemany was the royal residence of King Henri I (better known as Henri Christophe) of Haiti, Queen Marie-Louise and their two daughters. It was the most important of nine palaces built by the king, as well as fifteen châteaux, numerous forts, and sprawling summer homes on his twenty plantations.

Here, a 7.5′ grid line goes right through the building.

6' grid line going through the site of the Former Stadtschloss Palace in Berlin, Germany

6′ grid line going through the site of the Former Stadtschloss Palace in Berlin, Germany

The final example is the site of the former Stadtschloss Palace in Berlin, Germany. It was the principal residence (winter residence) of the Hohenzollern Kings of Prussia from 1701 to 1918 (the German Emperors from 1871 to 1918) and a museum following the fall of the German Empire in 1918.

The palace was damaged by Allied bombing in World War II. Although it was possible to repair the palace at considerable expense, it was demolished in 1950 by the German Democratic Republic (GDR) authorities. This was protested greatly by the West Germans. Following the reunification of Germany, it was decided to rebuild the Stadtschloss on the original site.

We can see that a 6′ grid line goes right through the site. Also notice that the same grid line goes through the Berlin Dome, just above the palace.

These are just a small number of examples of the world’s chateaus and palaces there were built on major World Grid lines. Further proof that this knowledge has been available to the world’s elite for hundreds and also thousands of years.


Particle Accelerators on the World Grid

Recently, we have been looking at Particle Accelerator sites around the world. Perhaps 75% of these sites are on major or minor grid lines. A large majority of them are on major grid lines. Some are on multiple grid lines, both major and minor.

We have found that particle accelerators that have relationships to the World Grid can be broken down into two groups. Those that have a grid line going through the center of the accelerator, and those that have a grid line going through the rim of the accelerator. We have selected one example of each type for you to look at.

The first site is Argonne National Laboratory in Argone, Illinois, USA. Here, a 7.5′ grid line goes through the center of the accelerator ring.

7.5' grid line going through the accelerator ring at Argonne National Laboratory

The second example is of Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, USA. Here a 6′ grid line goes through the rim of the accelerator ring.

6' grid line going through the rim of the accelerator ring at Brookhaven National Laboratory

We hope this information is both interesting and instructive for you.
