From Teotihuacan to Glastonbury - What's the Connection?

A fascinating and somewhat long article, tying together ancient sacred sites with a little bit of math.  Well worth the read.

Introduction to Glastonbury
Our last segments dealt with the Sacred District of Teotihuacán, Mexico. Making the transition from Mexico to Great Britain is no small fete – but we shall try…for there is a multiplicity of happenstance which those of skeptical mind will find all the more disconcerting. So, this article will transition us from Teotihuacán to, of all places, Glastonbury, UK.

The great monuments of antiquity, we affirm, were – in the main – not designed in a vacuum – i.e., they were purposefully measured by an ancient system of metrology based upon the duodecimal code of measurement (i.e., “12”). They were aligned with time (calendrical), space (astronomical) and profoundly cosmological in their consideration as manifested by sundry “cubits” found among the ancients – in particular, the “Sacred Cubit” of the Hebrews derived from antediluvian metrologies recorded in the Sacred Text of the Hebrews.

This “system of measurement” was, by design, known throughout the ancient world and was preserved by the Hebrews – though others mimicked aspects thereof (e.g., the Sumerian foot of 13.2” or the Egyptian Royal Cubit of 20.6” to 20.8”) – notwithstanding, the rotation of the Earth in one solar day is 360° * 7 days (one week) = 2520°…a “palm” or “handbreadth” is 3 ½ inches of 3.6” * 7 (palms/handbreadths) = 25.2” or 2.1 Linear Feet. It is this measurement which constitutes the Hebrew Sacred Cubit – the, if you would, “252” which is a “fractal” (i.e., “resemblance”) of the distance between the Earth and the Moon at apogee: 252,000 miles (i.e., 252 = 252).
We have traced the historicity of the Sacred Cubit’s progression and ultimate revival under the British during their “nautical expansion” and encapsulation during, primarily, the Elizabethan Era at the close of the Sixteenth Century. This became known as the “Imperial Mile” with all of its accoutrements such as the inch, foot, yard, mile, furlong, acre and other familiar metrological terms.

Sir Isaac Newton’s quest for the “Hebrew Sacred Cubit” eventually settled upon 2.0736’ or 24.8832” which measurement is really a “double foot” of sorts (i.e., two sets of 12” but exceeding 24” by .8832”). As one can readily observe, Newton’s 24.8832” Sacred Cubit is, in point of terrestrial fact, the circumference of the Earth at its polar meridian – i.e., a fractal of 24,883.2 Miles or 131,383,296 feet or 248,832 = 125 and 248,832 / 10 = 24,883.2 as in Miles (or 125 / 10 miles = 24,883.2 miles).

John Taylor discovered that Newton’s 2.0736’ (24.8832”) Sacred Cubit measurement was six-fifths of the longer Egyptian cubit of 1.728 feet (i.e., 20.736”). (Please Note: 1.728 feet can be seen as a fractal of 12 * 12 * 12 = 1,728 or the very dimension of the New Jerusalem’s side (one of six such sides) at 12,000 furlongs * 12,000 furlongs * 12,000 furlongs = 1,728,000,000,000 cubic furlongs or 1728 = 1728)
