In an earlier paper, it was noted that the Golden
Ratio could be applied in conjunction with a Fibonacci
series of numbers to obtain absolute resonance and
harmony.  Resonance, and therefore harmony, are always
relative to a mass of some elemental or compound
composition.  Using the PI and PHI of a circle, the

Further, the geometry of a square can be easily
converted into a circle, thus allowing the base of a
pyramid to equal the area of a circle, which is a
harmonic of the earth's equator, as is seen with the
Great Pyramid. The Egyptians used PHI, the Golden
Ratio, to do this.

We generally credit Pythagoras, of ancient Greece,
with the geometric and arithmetic theorems which are
the basis for our understanding of these sciences.
However, the pyramids predated Pythagoras, and the
concepts had been applied, long before his birth.
Over 140 years after Pythagoras' death, another
"modern" thinker, Plato, adapted the themes of
Pythagoras into his philiosphies.

Plato taught that the Greeks received their knowledge
from the Egyptians. The Egyptian mathematician Thoth,
whom the Egyptians deified with the  symbol of the
stork, is believed to have been the discoverer of the
relationships between geometry and harmony.  The stork
was chosen because of its ancient, pagan association
with birth.  Thoth was believed to have given birth to
the secrets of resonant geometry.

Since pyramids are resonating devices, it is little
wonder that the Egyptians deified Thoth.  Using the
geometry of earth resonance, the Great Pyramid became
a perfectly tuned resonator of earth energies.  By
squaring the circle and cubing the sphere, this
pyramid became a perfect geometric harmonic of the
earth's height and diameter.

Pythagoras opened his academy at the age of 50, on the
island of Samos, near Turkey.  The doctrines of
Pythagoras included gender equality, vegetarianism and
modesty.  It was forbidden to chop down trees or to
kill  any animal which was harmless to man.
Pythagoras appears to have been "politically and
environmentally correct" in his teachings.  Pythagoras
believed that one should never speak unkindly to or

His students were devoted to his doctrines, so much so
that if a student left the academy, a tomb was erected
for the student, who was never spoken to again.
Following the precepts of Pythagoras, his students
were attempting to attain a physical and emotional
balance which would condition them for ESP and
clairvoyance.  Those who attained these high "degrees"
of accomplishment were "graduated" and went into the
world as "teachers".

Building upon the Pythagorean principles, Plato
included the "magic" of geometry into his teachings.
In keeping with the "magic number" of seven, which was
based upon the seven human chakral energies as well as
the seven earth grid chakral points, Plato taught that
perfect harmony was a factor of seven musical notes.
Further, the seven sacred vowels, alpha, epsilon, eta,
iota, omicron, upsilon and omega, were believed to
have positive, harmonious and healthful effect.

Musical instruments were required to have seven
strings.  Sacred songs  could only contain the seven
sacred sounds, to avoid disharmony.  This,  too, was
based upon the Egyptian beliefs, and adopted by the
Greeks. It was illegal in Greece to create music which
was disharmonious, as this was considered to be
harmful to the balance of those who heard it.  The
Egyptians, and later the Greeks, understood that
harmonious sound vibrations would affect the chakral
balance of living beings.

Further, it was illegal to construct a disharmonious
building, because of the effect that unbalanced
energies would have on the persons inside the
structure.  The test was that a keynote from a lute
should cause the building to resonate.  In the same
way, Pythagoras played harmonious music to his
students before they slept, both to restore balance,
as well as to increase the potential for prophetic
dreaming.

It does not seem strange that a people who believed so
fervently in the importance of resonance should build
pyramids, perfect resonators, as the symbols of their
society.  Within these pyramids, meat would not rot,
but would mummify.  Thus preserved, the meat was
believed to be saturated with living earth energies.
In fact, turn of the century London apothecaries sold
"mummy meat" in powdered form as a revitalizer and
tonic.

Much of Pythagoras' knowledge was lost to the world
when he was murdered, but many of the relationships
that he theorized have become the basis for secular
mathematics.  He distinguished between the secular
math and  the sacred math, which involved resonant
geometry and the Golden Ratio. Only his most
accomplished students were allowed to learn the sacred
ratios, and they were sworn to a lifetime of secrecy.
Only their most accomplished students were allowed to
learn of earth resonant geometry, and these students
formed "orders" for the preservation and teaching of
the sacred concepts.

And yet, all of this originated with the discoveries
of Thoth, of whom little else is known.
