The Pentagon-Dodecahedron was a representation
of earth's tectonic plates. The ancients built a network of megalithic
structures upon it for many purposes related to enhancing their
psycho-spiritual needs up to and possibly including what led to the
vitrified rocks. Mystery Schools say this about it.

The number five  and its byproduct, the pentagram, have symbolic
prominence and have been attributed extraordinary qualities. Possibly
before ancient Sumerian astronomers observed the curious natural
phenomena that of the seven visible planets, only Venus traced a regular
geometric pattern, a pentagram in eight-year cycles, this number and
figure may have already achieved symbolic import. We can confirm at
least that what was observed above, was repeated by man here below. In
examining remaining monuments of this distant past we find evidence that
in fact the symmetry of the pentagram was utilized in mans most
important architectural edifices. We may also interpret the stone work
of this initiatic tradition in light of literary references to such
western traditions such as those of the Pythagoreans, Jews, Christians,
Druids, as well as the Lataif of Sufi tradition, and Hindu Tattwas. The
pentagram served the Pythagoreans as a salutation and a symbol of
health. Medieval masons considered it a symbol of deep wisdom and
integrated its proportions in ecclesiastical edifices. In recent times,
professor Matila Gyrka called the pentagram the "gateway to
absolute independence;" "symbol of deep wisdom;" and an
"ideal archetype of dynamic growth." It is not surprising that
we find such symbolism reoccurring in speculative Masonry and Masonic
A Shardana group of Phoenicians as well as the Genoese or Legurian
people going back to 2000 BC are involved. Recent finds have these
Shardana in a Trojan War era fortification reminiscent of the 'nuraghi'
in Sardinia. That site is near present day Syria or Mt. Carmel. They are
also found in the Hyksos reign over Egypt that is connected to Troy.
There are mines under the water off Marseilles and the region near the
mouth of the Rhone and the Pyrenees site of Rennes-le-Chateau is verdant
with legend and importance throughout history and pre-history. Massalia
was a focal point of transit and trade in a time before the Straits of
Gibraltar were formed.
"Five churches or sacred sites are all built on hilltops on the
site of older structures and form a perfect pentagon with its center
near the megalithic sites known locally as Balancing Rock and the
Devil's Chair. Two of these five sites are the churches in Rennes-le-Chateau
and Bezu. Between them is the ruin at Serre de Lauzet, with the chapel
of Blanchefort and the megalith at la Soulane as the other two
points." These words are from Mary Sutherland. The megaliths tie in
with the natural pentagram of the Pentagon-dodecahedron, which an
ancient Druidic University in the region either designed or used long
before Caesar or other Roman Emperors proscribed and eliminated the
Druids of the region as best they could.
The Phocaeans are closely associated with the 'Sons of Mil' of the
Milesian 'Bees'. They took military ships across the Mediterranean to
seal a deal with the king of Tartessus. You can read about it in The
Rise of the Greeks by Michael Grant. That 'Bee' is also found in
2200 BC on the island of Crete in the Royal House of Mallia. It is
important to remember that most early languages were vowel less. So 'ML'
and 'MLL' are just one step removed from each other.
The natural pentagram formed by the mountains of the area near Rennes-le-Chateau
where Nostradamus and Saunière were born is of paramount importance.
The pentagon-dodecahedron knowledge was so secret in the time of Plato
that anyone letting this secret be known to the uninitiated was put to
death. Pythagoras (taught by Abaris [Rabbi] the Druid) and the
Therapeutae used the pentagram instead and the Star of David, like the
Kabballah, is 'twisted' for a purpose I have dealt with in other books.
The Theosophists re-iterate much of what we have covered so far.
"The five-pointed star, or the star polygon of the number five, is
made by marking five equidistant points on a circle and joining each to
the next but one; the lines and angles are equal, the angles being 36
degrees, 72 degrees, and 108 degrees. The sections of the lines exhibit
the golden ratio, by which a line is divided into extreme and mean
ratio, that ratio being .618 or 1.618, which plays so important and
interesting a part in geometry. In symbolism this figure is often taken
as synonymous with the number five, the pentad. The Pythagoreans called
it the pentalpha, because it was like five alphas (A). It combines the
two and the three, the first even and the first odd numbers after unity,
representing therefore among many other things, on the universal plane,
the union of cosmic substance with cosmic intellect. If the three is
combined with the four (another symbol of matter) we get the seven. As a
union of five elements it stands for the heavenly or macrocosmic man and
its five points correspond to the head and limbs of a man's body; the
same idea lies behind the five wounds of Christ. When the star has its
point down, it signifies the polar opposite of the preceding, that is,
the nether or material pole of cosmic life; and so can be used as a
black magical symbol -- the horns of evil are said to be up. The
combination of these two produces the decad, in a similar way to that by
which the two triangles are combined in Solomon's Seal; and thus we get
another symbol of man's dual nature, and of the dual aspect of cosmic
forces. In connection with this, astrologers will remember that each of
five planets has two houses, a day house and a night house; while sun
and moon have each one house, so that we have here the five, the ten,
and the twelve, harmonized together. Five is specially important in our
times because we are in the fifth root-race, and five elements have so
far been manifested (the fifth, ether, only partially as yet). We have
five digits on each limb; five is the most frequent number for the
petals of a flower, we use the denary scale (twice five), and the number
five plays a leading part in the geometry of the dodecahedron and
icosahedron. In The Secret Doctrine we find the pentagon used for the
number five in the formula 31415, the other figures likewise being
denoted by geometrical signs." (2)

At the time of Cätäl Hüyük a couple of millennia before the Black
Sea became something other than an inland freshwater lake, there appears
to be a 'precocious' cell of advanced people there according to
Jacquetta Hawkes. Are these Anatolians connected with the Smyrna
Milesians or 'Bees' of the Onassis Merovingians? Are they the people who
became the Shardana on Sardinia along with the nearby Legurian (Genoese
Phoenician Pirates) group who treated Druids as priests according to one
author I have quoted? There is so much to piece together, and correct.
Here are a couple of time line dates to consider in recent days about
the Merovingian/Milesians. 1932: Aristotle Socrates Onassis, a Greek
drug pusher and ship owner who made his first million selling
"Turkish tobacco" (Opium) in Argentina, worked out a
profitable deal with Joseph Kennedy, Eugene Meyer, and Meyer Lansky
(Nixon was the keynote speaker at the opening of his Bahamas casinos.
The Mafia later gave Nixon money to get his San Clemente estate).
Onassis was to ship booze directly into Boston for Joseph Kennedy (who
also had no money in stocks when the crash came but made huge money in
stock rumour mongering but then was appointed to head the SEC). Also
involved was a heroin deal with Franklin and Elliott Roosevelt. No doubt
these things I say require your further research - but do not accept
just one or two 'official' denials. 1934: Onassis, Rockefeller and the
Seven Sisters (major oil companies) signed an agreement, outlined an oil
cartel memo: Beat the Arabs out of their oil, ship it on Onassis's
ships; Rockefeller and the Seven Sisters to get rich. All this was done.
It is just part of a very serious situation that also involves the
pharmacological abuse of humanity under the guise of psychiatry and
A web of drug traders who may have built the over 7000 'nuraghi'
(medieval looking castles) on Sardinia starts to appear. The potions of
Anatolian Blue Lotus hallucinogens when joined with Peruvian cocaine
allowed an ancient culture to control many of their colonies. Perhaps
this kind of control was the true beginning of the end of Brotherhood
but gender issues were involved as well. I think James Joyce as quoted
by Joseph Campbell in Gimbutas's Language of the Goddess brings
it all together for us. He calls it a 5000 year 'nightmare'. When I say
the 'web of drug traders', I am talking about Phoenicians or Northern
Semites and their 'brothers'. The Sun:
The Tepaphone used by Hitler's Freemasonic Order of the Golden Centurion
is based on The Lost Chord of Druidry. The knowledge begins in
understanding the Harmonic of Light and the sun. The sun is best
observed through the transit of Venus which was a major part of Captain
Cook's research when he first was sent out to explore the Pacific.

I too find the mummery tarot readers and astrologers often use
I do think the ancient Egyptians and Mesoamericans had an understanding
of the suns influence on the earth that we are just beginning to
confirm. There remains little doubt the charlatans who disguised
themselves as priests over the past millennia had much to do with this
repression of knowledge.
Genetic changes through variation of local magnetic field strengths does
affect mitosis (cell division) and since the sun goes through 28 day
cycles relative to the earths orbiting of it, may affect certain
personality traits at conception. Hence my tie-in with sun signs and
real electromagnetic changes affecting developing embryos.
It's also theorized that equatorial climes like those of the Maya were
most severely affected by a period of sunspot activity that resulted in
a severe decline in fertility hence a reason for the abandonment of
cities like chichen itza because the cycle coincided with the return of
Quetzalcoatl (a role Cortez usurped to his own advantage). Also the
climate would change during a period of solar polar flips which would
tilt the earth's axis and electromagnetic fields as well.
Since the sun itself couldn't be directly observed for sunspot activity
during those times it was the cycles of Venus that were used to herald
the changes that would repeat themselves over millennia. I believe this
information was widely spread among the mesa Americans and their Celtic
trading partners prior to the total destruction of Carthage and its
wealth of knowledge.
The sun as you know causes nuclear reactions in the atmosphere that can
transform nitrogen atoms into a heavy form (isotope) of carbon that has
an atomic weight of 14 instead of the usual 12.
C14 as you know is used for carbon dating but while archaeologists have
found it reliable in most cases there are anomalies that can only be
attributed to the amount of c14 in the atmosphere over different periods
C14 is now linked to solar activity and the advance and retreat of
alpine glaciers and it shows that high levels of c14 correspond with
decreases in solar activity.
The explanation as I understand it, is that an active sun generates a
large number of sunspots, and these in turn cause a large number of
charged particles to be thrown into space resulting in a thickening of
the Van Allen belts. As a result the lower atmosphere is shielded from
cosmic radiation and less c14 is produced. Conversely at times of low
solar activity, when there are few if any sunspots, there are fewer ions
between the atmosphere and the sun to shield out cosmic rays. More
nitrogen is thus converted to c14.
Scientists are now comparing the graphs for solar activity (sunspot
numbers) temperatures, wind severity, and glaciation against the rise
and fall of civilizations. It seems the high levels of solar activity
correlate with the growth of sophisticated civilizations while low
activity links up with periodic 'dark ages'.
Is this what is indicated in the Maya long count calendar? I don't know
but it seems reasonable to speculate that a period of increased seismic
activity along with increased severe weather (hurricanes churning
towards the Mayan gulf cities) which also led to a disruption of the wet
season for crops and possibly a decline in human fertility would have
led them to abandon their homes, especially if the events were
prophesied as we believe they were.
With the forecast year of 2012 as the end of this fifth age we might
also wonder about the climactic and electromagnetic changes we are
I noted your aside that Cayce was a Mason. While I too have some doubts
about his ability to actually prophesize I wonder if you think he had
access to esoteric knowledge that contravened his religious piety?
Certainly his predictions about finding Atlantean outcroppings off the
coast of Belize and Bimini seem accurate as well as his earlier beliefs
in the earths axis (from magnetic forces) tilting, causing widespread
tidal and weather related destruction in a cyclical fashion.
