A history lesson for people who think that history doesn’t matter:

What’s the big deal about railroad tracks?

The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used?

Well, because that’s the way they built them in England, and English engineers designed the first US railroads.

Why did the English build them like that?

Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the wagon tramways, and that’s the gauge they used.

So, why did ‘they’ use that gauge then?

Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they had used for building wagons, which used that same wheel spacing.

Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing?

Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break more often on some of the old, long distance roads in England . You see, that’s the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So who built those old rutted roads?

Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (including England ) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since.

And what about the ruts in the roads?

Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match or run the risk of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome , they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. Bureaucracies live forever.

So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process and wonder ‘What horse’s ass came up with this?’, you may be exactly right. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses. (Two horses’ asses.)

Now, the twist to the story:

When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah . The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature, of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system, was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse’s ass. And you thought being a horse’s ass wasn’t important? Ancient horse’s asses control almost everything and….

Practical Geometry for Builders and Architects.

“Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.” ― Goethe

“The most incredible architecture is the architecture of Self, which is ever changing, evolving, revolving and has unlimited beauty and light inside which radiates outward for everyone to see and feel.”

PHI: Omniscience

The Mathematics of the Heavens, Stars, Pyramids, and Sacred Architecture,

is no different than the very measurements that underpins the maths of flowers.

Phi’s Omnipotence pervades all,

pervades the human anatomy:

the place where the elbow bends,

in proportion to the whole arm is 8:13,

is the same as the counter-rotating field spirals

of the humble pine cone / Pine Code.

Vesica Piscis returns, and is the symbol in Sacred Geometry for Partnership

The “Vesica Piscis” is a drawing of two circles, each centered on the edge of the other. This simple form creates many important ratios for other geometric construction.

The Flower of Life is the Blueprint of Creation based on an unchanging circle’s radius that walks its circumference to create hexagonal geometry. 72 components or pieces or vesica-like shapes in the overall design. Seen on many ancient temple architectures, carved or lasered into stone. Other developmental stages of this Flower of Life is the Seed of Life (having 7 Circles) and the Fruit of LIfe (having 13 Circles that creates the 5 Platonic Solids).
