The Golden Mean Spiral is the Curve of the Universe = 495

THE CODE ZONE: Reality Outside The Box (No.19) A Weekly Column By Gary Val Tenuta

You've just entered a realm somewhere outside the bounds of conventional wisdom... a world of words and ideas... a place where reality can shift at any given tnemom. See what I mean? Welcome to... The CodeZone.

Do we have here more evidence that our own alphabet is somehow linked to "the bigger picture" in ways we don't yet understand? Is our alphabet a cipher to unlock the mysteries of the universe and help connect us, by way of clues, to the origins of our own species?

Once again the alphanumerics of the english language have generated some amazing synchronicities. This happens frequently when combining my "crypto-numerology" with the work of archaeocryptographer, Michael Lawrence Morton. Michael is continually expanding on the pioneering work of Carl Munck.

[see some of Michael's amazing discoveries at these web sites: http://www.farshore.f htm m]

Carl Munck introduced the world to the archaeomatrix code based on his discovery of an ancient latitude/longitude coordinate system which uses the Great Pyramid as the Prime Meridian. This code provides a link to many, if not all, of the ancient stone monuments around the globe and also, believe it or not, to the Face On Mars (see The Code Of Carl Munck & Ancient Gematrian Numbers on the web)

In this particular case, Michael sent me a copy of his recent correspondence with another researcher, Neil Freer. Without going into detail here, suffice to say they were discussing the idea of "curvature" as a fundamental element of the universe. Michael noted that, indeed, the entire archaeomatrix code is based on numbers related to curvature, including the radian (deg) of 57.29577951 arc-degrees, which is based on a circumference of 360 arc-degrees. And furthermore, the latitude/longitude coordinates are implicitly "curvature" related by arc-degrees, arc-minutes, and arc-seconds. And, as Michael also pointed out, the stunning thing about the "code" is the "self referential" aspect of it.

It occurred to me that the very concept of "self-referencing" is curvative, as in "circular". I went on to discover some curiously synchronistic alphanumerics in regard to this curve business. Since the golden mean spiral represents a unique curvature and is a key factor in the growth patterns of living organisms I decided to begin with that. Bingo! The first phrase off my keyboard was a direct hit:


Keeping the digits 4, 9, and 5 in mind, recall from CodeZone No.6 ("Is This How Sacred Symbols Are Born?") that in the series of "alphanumbers", ZERO through NINE, only three of them (FOUR, FIVE and NINE) have reduced AlphaNumeric Values (ANV) of 6, giving us a symbolic 666* as shown here:

(Remember, reduced values of multi-digit numbers are found by cross-adding the digits of the multi-digit number until a single digit is produced)

ZERO=64 (6+4=10, 1+0=1, so the reduced value of 64 is 1)
ONE=34 (reduced: 7)
TWO=58 (4)
THREE=56 (2)
*FOUR=60 (6)
*FIVE=42 (6)
SIX=52 (7)
SEVEN=65 (2)
EIGHT=49 (4)
*NINE=42 (6)

So, we have...
Now add those ANVs and what do we get?
60+42+42 = 144

144 is not only considered a holy number meaning "light" in Hebrew gematria but it is a decimal harmonic of the key number, 144,000, mentioned in the 14th chapter of the biblical book of Revelations. Furthermore, using our own alphabet, 144 is the ANV of some provocatively related phrases:


Also, 144 = ONE TWO SIX

And fittingly, 1+2+6=9 (our favorite mystery number)

And even more fittingly...


More "curvature" references:

The sum of the multidigit ANVs of ZERO thru NINE is 522 (you can add them up yourself, using the alphanumber table provided above).

What happens when we combine the 522 with 144? We get that other key number from the book of Revelations: 522 + 144 = 666 You can see how this "self-references" back to the FOUR, FIVE, NINE thing of 666 mentioned above; sort of "circular", you might say.

Again, keeping the 495 in mind (and remember the complete phrase which generated that number?) note this... THE GOLDEN MEAN SPIRAL = 198 495/198 = 2.5 2.5 x 144 = 360 (degrees in a circle).

2.5 is also a decimal harmonic of 25, or what I call "alphanumeric Pi" (Pi=25) and half of the alphanumeric value of CIRCLE = 50.

So, to sum up (no pun intended), we have two "curve" related elements going here: 1. spiral 2. circle

Notice we're seeing alphanumeric correlations to this "curvature" concept. A circle and a spiral are two different things but they both involve curvature. Thinking about it I wondered how the two concepts might be brought together to form more of a unified concept . It occurred to me that two spirals, going in opposite directions, one overlaid directly on top of the other, creates an interesting visual effect of a dynamic circle (see figure 1). This idea of opposites was discussed in CodeZone No.16 ("THE HANDS OF GOD = 126") regarding the yin/yang symbology of the number 69 [= JEHOVAH] and the JESUS/LUCIFER concept as two sides of the same "spiritual coin" you might say (see figure 2).


So with this "reversed spiral" concept in mind, I decided to take the ANV of the phrase, THE GOLDEN MEAN SPIRAL, reverse it and combine the two numbers:

THE GOLDEN MEAN SPIRAL=198, reversed: 891
198 + 891 = 1089

The 1089 was an interesting number in that it contained the digits of the two numbers which created it but I couldn't relate it to anything relevant at the moment. Then I found something I thought was an amazing self-referencing correlation. Remember the number 495? That was the sum of the entire phrase, THE GOLDEN MEAN SPIRAL IS THE CURVE OF THE UNIVERSE.

So, reversing that number and combining the two (again symbolic of graphically reversing and combining the spirals), I found this...

495 + 594 = 1089, the same number!

Suddenly the number 1089 rang a bell. I went back into my notes and found this:




549 + 540 = what? ... 1089!
The combining of spiritually opposing icons produced the same number!

Then, curiously, we have this...

As my friend Michael pointed out, this number 171 can be seen graphically as 11/7. Think of the two 1's as representing the number 11 and think of the 7 as coming between them, in essence dividing the 11 in half. What is 11 divided by 7? It's 1.571428571 or precisely Pi/2. Pi, of course, is a key element in our universe of "curvatures". But hold on. There's more...

Remember up there in the second paragraph where I mentioned the radian of 57.29577951 arc-degrees, which is based on a CIRCUMFERENCE of 360 arc-degrees? I noticed the sum of the digits in 57.29577951 is 57, the same as the whole number on the left side of the decimal. Realizing 57 reduces to 3 by cross-adding the digits (5+7=12, then further, 1+2=3) I found this:

57 x 3 =171, the same as the alphanumeric value of REVERSED SPIRAL or, graphically, 11/7 or Pi/2.

And remember 1089? That number reduces down to our favorite mystery number 9. And what happens if we divide 9 by the radian (deg) 57.29577951?

9/57.29577951 = .157079633, a decimal harmonic of 1.57079633 or Pi/2 !

And if we divide the entire multi-digit number of 1089 by the radian (deg) 57.29577951 we get this nice alphanumeric synchronicity:

1089/57.29577951=19 = DNA, and of course DNA is the ol' double helix spiral!

Is this all just by chance? Mere coincidence? Or is it meaningful synchronicity? Is it more evidence that our own alphabet is somehow linked to "the bigger picture" in ways we don't yet understand? Is our alphabet a cipher to unlock the mysteries of the universe and help connect us by way of clues to the origins of our own species? As always, the possibilities are endless... out here... the Code Zone.
