?controversy about a mysterious new building in Washington, DC - A month ago, we posted a story about William Henry's incredible revelation that the US Capitol building works as stargate (a pathway between heaven and earth), just like an Egyptian pyramid. He explains all this in his incredible new DVD Amreican Rite. Anne Strieber recently interviewed William about this for subscribers!
On December 2, 2008, the largest project ever in the US Capitol's long history of expansion was opened to the public. The stunning underground $621 million marble and stone Capitol Visitor?s Center is a luxe extension of the Capitol, doubling its footprint. Stephen T. Ayeres, the Architect of the Capitol hopes it will quickly become the gateway for visitors the Capitol.
In his remarks, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, quipped that members will no longer have to "smell the tourists" on hot summer days. Further, "Today the 'people's temple' shines brighter than ever before?" The opening drew heavy criticism in conservative circles for minimizing references to God and to religious faith and for emphasizing the Capitol as a "People?s Temple" (in fact its "sole temple") and the Constitution as America's "oracle." US Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) criticized the CVC design in a press release, charging that "it fails to appropriately honor our religious heritage that has been critical to America?s success."
Noting that the Architect of the Capitol has pledged to include "some references to faith," DeMint continued:"More needs to be done. You cannot accurately tell the history of America or its Capitol by ignoring the religious heritage of our Founders and the generations since who relied on their faith for strength and guidance. The millions of visitors that will visit the CVC each year should get a true portrayal of the motivations and inspirations of those who have served in Congress since its establishment." A local Nashville radio talk show host also took offense at the suggestion that the Capitol is called a temple. A caller asked if the reference to the "People's Temple" had anything to do with the notorious cult leader, Jim Jones.
William says, "This total ignorance, sadly, is likely shared by other Americans who have no clue that the gleaming white building in Washington DC is, indeed, a temple. I agree with Senator DeMint. Americans should have a true portrayal of the motivations and inspirations of those who built the Capitol. Well, here it is."
Thomas Jefferson called it "The first temple dedicated to the sovereignty of the people." An anonymous essay of 1795 described the Capitol building as a 'temple erected to Liberty.' Specifically, the founders of the Capitol Temple likened it to Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. "I have every hope that the grand work we have done today will be handed down?to a late posterity, as the like work of that ever memorable temple to our order erected by our ancient Grand Master Solomon," said Maryland Grand Master Joseph Clark on September 18, 1793, at the laying of the cornerstone of the Capitol.
"It would be unbecoming the representatives of this Nation to assemble for the first time in this solemn Temple without looking up to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe and imploring His blessing," said President Adams on November 22, 1800, at the opening the Second Session of the Sixth Congress in the new Capitol building.
William says, "This is more than poetic. The US Capitol has several architectural and other features that unquestionably identify it with ancient temples, including stone construction, an underground entrance, chapels, an image of a deified being, religious imagery and inscriptions, divine proportions, massive columns, palpable spiritual energy, acoustic trickery, terrifying guardians, mystic visitors, closed doors, and orientation to the Sun."
The designers of the city of Washington, DC oriented it to the Sun, especially the sunset on March 21 and September 21. The measurements for this orientation were made from the center of the dome of the U.S. Capitol, rendering it a "solar temple." Author David Ovason imagines it as the center of a compass and as a point of stillness, where the arc of the sunset is "centered." This still point is the tip of an angel's needle that weaves the abstract, event transcendent, concepts of Freedom and Liberty into the fabric of America. According to William, "It is crystal clear from the statements set in the stone of the Capitol that the builders viewed it as America's sole temple (a solemn, Solomon's Solar Temple in Jerusalem to be exact). This temple connects the earthly and the transcended realms.
"The dome of the Capitol ices this connection. Domes have been called the perfect architectural shape: the circle, symbol of the universe, executed in three dimensions. In religious architecture domes proclaim the glory of God. In fact, the word dome comes from Latin domus, a house, via Italian duomo, a house of God, that is a church (from 'kirk,' meaning 'circle'). The oculus or eye of the dome is considered the Gateway of the Sun. From this gateway at the top of the dome rises the World Axis, the link between heaven and earth. Domes, therefore, are the threshold or gateway of the spiritual world. This definition applies to the Capitol Dome."
In summation, William says, "In my Dreamland show about my new DVD The American Rite, I detail exactly why the Capitol is a link between heaven and earth, or a stargate."
He will tell us MORE about this incredible theory on Dreamland January 17 (the day before the inauguration).
