Richard Heath is one of the great interpreters of sacred geometry of our time, and here he discusses his masterwork, Sacred Geometry: the Language of the Angels with Whitley. In the past, we understood our world in terms of its relationship to the divine, and expressed that by building great structures that were based on harmonious measurement. We understood our place in nature, but could not control it. Now we are much better at controlling our place in nature but no longer understand ourselves as part of its divinity.

In this deep dive into how the ancient world saw itself in terms of sacred number, Richard suggests ways of restoring our ancient relationship to nature without abandoning our modern understanding. In that direction lies nothing less than a new mankind.

  1. I’m not sure why but whenever I read about these kind of planetary geometries, it kindles something deep within me and I start feeling like an excited child! I’ve just pre-ordered Richard’s latest book, which is due early March and it just got me thinking whether this exact same language extends down to Earth in the form of Crop Circles. I certainly know that geometries related to ‘squaring the circle’ are found in many authentic formations and that the same ratio of 11:3 is present in the relative diameters of the Earth and Moon.

    Are we talking about the same conscious energy… the same ‘Angels’?

    There are also some very interesting connections with 27.3 or 0.273. Synchronistically, the first time I found out about the prevalence of this was when I was exactly, to the day, 27.3 years old…I was so shocked when I realised that, I must have gone of the calculations of my age in decimal values at least four times! That was from a book called ‘God’s Secret Formula’ by Peter Plichta, in a chapter called ‘The House of Cards that is Physics’. Just out of interest, I just looked on Amazon and the paperback is for sale for an eye-watering £250…and I have the hardback!

  2. I’ve just found all this lot…

    “…The ratio of Earth’s diameter to Moon’s diameter is 0.273. (The moon is 27.3 % the size of the Earth).
    Comparing a square’s perimeter to a circle having an equal circumference, the circle’s diameter is 27.3% longer than the edge of the square. (easier to visualize in the illustration).
    Inscribe a circle inside a square. The four corners make up 27.32% of the total area.
    This is reached through the formula: (4 – pi) / pi = 0.2732
    The relationship of the Great Pyramid’s height to half its base is 1.273:1 (or 4:π) and thus ‘squares the circle’.
    -273.2 degrees Celsius is the temperature of Absolute Zero.
    27.32 is the freezing point of water on Kelvin scale (K).
    Absolute zero of water is 273.2% colder than the temperature it takes to boil.
    273 days = average length of pregnancy (10 sidereal months).
    27.3 days = human menstrual cycle.
    27.32 earth days is the sidereal period of the moon (moon completes one full rotation, one ‘moonth’).
    1/273.2 per C is the expansion/reduction of gas (Gasses expand by 1/273 of their volume with every degree on the Celsius/centigrade scale).
    Sunspots revolve about the Sun’s surface in 27.3 days.
    Water changes phase at 273°K.
    273 days from the summer solstice to the vernal equinox.
    2,730,000 is the circumference of the Sun in miles.
    The triple point of water is defined to take place at 273.16 K.
    The Cosmic Background Radiation is 2.73 K.
    The Earth and Moon orbital periods are reciprocals. 1/27.32 = 0.0366 (366 days in a sidereal year) (1/366 =.002732) 27.32 days in one ‘moonth’.
    273 m/s2 = acceleration of the Sun.
    .273 cm/s2 = acceleration of the moon along its path around the Earth…”

    1. The Earth and Moon orbital periods are reciprocals. 1/27.32 = 0.0366 (366 days in a sidereal year) (1/366 =.002732)

      Well spotted. This relationship leads to what I call the cronon, the length of time extra each day for the earth to catch up with the sun at sunrisethat causes the sky to creep along during the year. The lunar orbit is 10,000 chronons, a major interest in my Matrix of Creation, and seen as 10,000 inches around Le Menec western cromlech (in Lords of Time).
      Excellent list.

  3. An excellent interview. Sacred Geometry is indeed a deep and profound subject. There are many hints in the discussion that the civilization that existed before teh younger Dryas comet had great wisdom and after the collapse some of the most profound wisdom was stored in Earthworks and stories.

    Another aspect of the discussion was also profound, especially in the last segment (sorry free dreamlanders). In ‘A New World’ we get the impression that the visitors favor and support ‘personal freedom’ and we are losing it as the economic slavery of the American people and the vast bombardment with lies supporting the predatory lending and consumption materialism are creating a poverty of soul and people are going insane in delusions of dissatisfaction. We need healing of our spirit as individuals and as a people in order to deal with the cascading collapse of the biosphere which supports us.

    1. Yes, this subject is starting to have more relevance politically since policy makers seem to be blind now to human evolution.

    “People going insane with delusions of dissatisfaction.” That is one of the most trenchant and powerful insights into the current situation that I have ever seen. Thank you for it!

    1. Sunbow’s comment about “consumption materialism creating a poverty of soul” reminds me of something the Master of the Key said about our civilization being made over after drowning in its own garbage. And that after that, no one would ever lust after the material again. A haunting comment that stayed with me.

  5. It isn’t exactly sacred geometry, but I would be interested to know Heath’s view on today’s musical tuning standard of 440Hz as compared to the old standard of 432Hz. 440Hz was not adopted here in the U.S. in 1917, and it began being adopted by the rest of the world in the 1940’s. If you have ever listened to anything in 432Hz, it has a totally different feel. Would the whole world take on a different tone if we went back to 432Hz?

    Also, if you look at what was going on in the period from 1917 through the 1940’s in the world, and also come forward to now, it’s interesting too in terms of changes that kind of correlates with the change in tuning. Food for thought…

    1. Cosmic……..Very, very interesting post. “Musical tuning standard of 440Hz.”

      I know from your past posts that you are knowledgeable in regards to ANCIENT EGYPT. Have you seen this?

      The Was-Sceptre, “TUNING FORK?”

      How the Ancients Cut Stone with Sound – Lost High Technology Explained | Ancient Architects – YouTube

      1. Carollee,
        Yes, I am very familiar with the idea of how the Egyptians may have used sound. Musical instruments found in ancient tombs in Egypt have been shown to be tuned to 432Hz as well.

        For those who are interested, there’s quite a bit of information on the internet that includes samples to listen to…There are even how-to videos about how to record at 432Hz. And it won’t cost you a dime to just check it out and listen. Just search for ‘432Hz’ and see where it takes you and what you learn…or feel.

    2. I love this post concerning 432hz vs 440hz.
      My background is in Music Theory and Composition.
      The ‘classical’ music that came out of the era that decided 440Hz would be standard also reflects the tumultuous years of the 1900s. Most of you will have never heard the names Stockhausen, Milton Babbit, Eliot Carter, or even Schoenberg. They were all studied intensely by students of music theory and composition throughout the last 100 years in the universities. This music, called loosely Atonal, Serial, or just Abstract was touted as the next great movement by the ivory tower intellectuals of the day.
      They were bearing the musical torch of the future. I studied this stuff until blue in the face, soul, and pained in the brain. I heartily disagreed with my professors.
      There is a reason they aren’t household names like Beethoven, Mozart, Stravinsky, or even Vaughan Williams or Aaron Copeland.
      See and listen for yourself:

      Admittedly it’s fun to watch it performed and this guy did a spectacular performance of very difficult music.
      But, how do you respond to it? Would you put it on just to listen to it? How many times would you return to it after the first time through?

      I think it is a music that is devoid of soul. It’s a music that is pure intellectual exercise. “Augenmusik”. Music for the eyes. The music community expected you to like it. They were self rightously confused when so few of us really did.

      And alternatively, we all know the undercurrent of music that was to succeed out of the impoverished common person, Jazz and Rock.

      I personally go out of my way to find pieces that have been redone or tuned to 432Hz. There is much of it available on Youtube to sample from droning meditation music to maybe your favorite song that someone graciously set to 432. I hope you all will follow Cosmic Librarian’s hunch and explore the difference.
      Your body and soul will thank you.

        1. Caroline, I chose 432 as well. I swear it!
          Funny, I subscribe to Chords of Orion but never saw that post.

    3. I have tuned my guitar to it occasionally and it is interesting. We must remember that when fully equal temperament came in, the ratios of its 12 semitones were not pure ratios, which are products of 2,3 and 5.

      In ET only the “standard” for C or A in hertz is ever going to be a pure musical tone number so 432 = 16 x 27 and times 12th root of 2 (which defines ET semitones) is 484.9 Hz for the tone higher whereas, in Pythagorean tuning, with a tone interval of 9/8, the tone is 486.

      This means: 432 is not “out of the woods” in ET but may be a bit better than 440, a number with 11 in it – a guitar will be ET because its frets define that. Try some early music perhaps tuned to Just intonation and it will not matter about 432 – music being relative to do and the hertz don’t then matter.

      Hope this is comprehensible.

      1. Thank you for responding Richard Heath!
        I could follow what you wrote. At least I think so.
        I think music in Equal Tempered tuning will sound a bit off for most people when it comes to meditation. I like what you wrote though. Made sense.

  6. I was disappointed that the example of progressive Revelation and the connection to light ended with Paul. For it should go on with Mohammad seeing an Angel of light and when the wife of the Báb (whose life and death in Persia was extremely Chist like and who started His ministry in the same year that William Miller foretold the return of Christ was going to happen: 1844) witnessed her Husband to have His burning bush/Dove from heaven moment, she witnessed Him to be radiating a blinding light. Likewise, when Bahá’u’lláh, (the Messiah that the John-the-Baptist like figure of the Báb foretold to his 18 disciples as coming 9 years after His execution) had His revelation in the Black Pit dungeon in Tehran, He witnessed a Light Being described as the “Maid of heaven”. Although i wonder if the “Maid of Heaven” angel He saw was maybe actually a Watcher/Grey… Bahá’u’lláh’s 40 year ministry was also very Christ like. Indeed Baha’is belive He fulfils numerous prophecies for not only the return of the Christ, but also for the future Maitreya Buddha, the return of Krishna, the Shah Bahram fortold by Zoroaster and the Jewish Messiah (since He wasn’t crucified and after his appearance in Palestine from 1868 and on Mt. Carmel (where the German Templars were awaiting the return of Christ) in 1883 the Jews started returning to Palestine in ever greater numbers).

    1. Author

      I am well aware of everything you discuss here, but it is beyond the scope of Jesus: A New Vision, which is about the life, work and times of Jesus, not the other prophets and seers, nor is it intended to imply anything about them by their being excluded.

      1. It would be very interesting to get a book length perspective on Mohammad from you… although that could be too dangerous due to the amount of muslim fanatics… what would be totally safe though (since Bahá’ís are totally peaceful and against fanaticism) would be to get your unique perspective on the Báb of Shiraz and Baha’u’llah of Núr. The history book “The Dawn Breakers” by Nabil Azam is every bit as fascinating as the Gospels. The Christ like Bab’s execution was also followed by a sun blocking dust storm and preceded by a miraculous event. (He disappeared from his fetters after being shot at by 750 rifles and was found back in his cell). But since it was just 171 years ago it was actually recorded in newspapers and diplomatic documents of that time!

    2. I have a chapter (8) in my new book giving an interpretation of the Kaaba as rooted in both pre-Christian astronomy (lunar maximum) and 6th century mathematics such a gnomic numbers.
      I am far from Christian obsessed and Mohammad and Islam was exactly during dark ages elsewhere as a bridge to the later high sciences of say the Hall of Wisdom in Bagdad. I would be interested in feedback on the sacred geometry aspect of Islam.

  7. Thank you Richard Heath and Whitley for another great interview…….Thank you subscribers for all these wonderful comments.

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
    ―Nikola Tesla

    Alpha waves in the human brain are between 6 and 8 hertz. The wave frequency of the human cavity resonates between 6 and 8 hertz. All biological systems operate in the same frequency range. The human brain’s alpha waves function in this range and the electrical resonance of the earth is between 6 and 8 hertz Thus, our entire biological system – the brain and the earth itself – work on the same frequencies. If we can control that resonate system electronically, we can directly control the entire mental system of humankind.

    I’ve got to get a real expert on the show to tell us about 432HZ vs 440HZ. We’ll dig.

      1. Fretless instruments like the violin and human voice have been found to seek pure tones amongst the ET type of system where early music was often Pythagorean and without the power of our great composers. Plato called the ET kind of tuning a “compromise” and likened it to democracy, everyone sacrificing a little to get on.

  9. Hi Whitley,
    I was reading your book “Jesus”, I started seeing the same repetitive numbers when I started reading at 1:33, 3:33, 5:33, 7:33, every time I looked at the clock. So strange. It kept happening till the next day. it stopped when I finished your book. What’s going on????
