SACRED GEOMETRY OF THE EARTH: The Ancient Matrix of Monuments and Mountains
By Mark Vidler & Catherine Young
From continent to continent across the globe, the authors reveal that order is everywhere on Earth. On remote islands, soaring summits, and level deltas, they unveil natural topographic patterns related to pi, the golden ratio, and right-triangle geometry. And as the planet's design emerges, it becomes clear that this hidden order in nature decided the location of ancient monuments the world over.
Through detailed maps, they show how the locations of megalithic monuments reflect and enhance a natural pattern on the Earth that connects its major features. The rows of standing stones at Carnac in France, for example, point to the summits of Mount Everest and K2, and Angkor Wat in Cambodia is on a straight line joining Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and the tip of Cape Comorin in India. They reveal how circles of standing stones and man-made mounds mark intersections of these lines. As they uncover geometric patterns on the Earth line by line, point by point, the authors reveal how the world's ancient monuments represent a form of transglobal communication that far predates the written word.
