Just as base ten numbers relate to the fingers and toes in terms of counting, each celestial period divides into the others like fingers revealing the base numbers of planetary creation. This ancient system made the art of counting a sacramental art, its units being given spiritual meanings beyond just measurement. The imperial yard, for example, retains a direct relationship to the Equator, the length of a day and a year, and the angular values of Earth, Moon, and Jupiter.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The ancients encoded their secret knowledge of the skies within mythology, music, monuments, and units of sacred measurement.

Synopsis:

Sacred numbers arose from ancient mans observation of the heavens, and represent the secrets of cosmic proportion and alignment. The ancients understood that the ripeness of the natural world is the perfection of ratio and that the planetary system--and time itself--is a creation of number. We have forgotten what our ancestors once knew: that numbers and their properties create the forms of the world.
