Archaeologists with Israel’s Tel Aviv University have discovered a previously-unnoticed geometric pattern in the layout of the excavated portions of Göbekli Tepe, the 13,000-year-old megalithic complex in modern-day Turkey that has upended modern archaeological assumptions since its unveiling over two decades ago. This geometric pattern not only predates the advent of
Researchers studying the morphological traits of the birds of Peru’s famous Nazca Lines have made an interesting revelation regarding the animals depicted by the massive earthworks: none of them are native to the Nazca region, but instead represent coastal creatures, rather than an aviary that would be found on the
During a routine patrol on August 10, 1990, Idaho Air National Guard pilot Lieutenant Colonel Bill Miller spotted a strange sight from the cockpit of his RF-4C Phantom fighter jet: a quarter-mile (0.4 kilometer) wide series of intricate geometric designs, carved into the dry lake bed of Mickey Basin, located southeast of the Steens Mountains in Idaho’s Alvord Desert. The design was later identified as a Sri Yantra Mandala, an ancient Hindu symbol. But how did this large and mysterious earthwork, not there the day before, appear seemingly overnight?
A new crop circle featuring a variation on the ancient geometric symbol of Metatron’s Cube has formed in a wheat field close to Cley Hill, south of Warminster, UK. The 400-foot formation was discovered on July 18, 2017.
Metatron’s Cube is a two-dimensional geometric figure composed of 13 equally-sized circles, arranged in a hexagonal pattern. Lines inscribed through key points the formation produce 2-D representations of the five three-dimensional Platonic solids: the tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and isocohedron. This particular formation also incorporates 36 other circles, with their centers aligned around the circumference of the Star of David representation that the Metatron’s Cube forms.
