It’s a mystery. Many studies, many more theories, and it’s still a mystery. It’s like a tangled ball of yarn. If we could just find the right end and pull….It will all unravel.
We have been discussing the 56 Aubrey Post holes at Stonehenge I (the way it looked in the beginning). This leads naturally into looking at the same sort of features at Stonehenge (as it has been reconstructed today). Lotha Wilhelmy has done a very fine reconstruction in this large mural. In the center we see the 5 large monumental stone pairs called the Trilithons. Notice that as one looks at them there is a tendency to mentally try to complete the circle to obtain 6. And then one has to think – no 5- why not 6? But only 5. Once again that 56 pattern reappears. 56 56 recalls the letters that appear by way of gematria for several of the Hebrew names for God.
The most notable features of this structure are the inner and outer two rings of stones. The large Trilithon ring is made of 10 uprights (plus 5 lintels) and outer ring of 30 uprights (plus 30 lintels). 10 + 30 = 40. Here appears the rather Biblical number 40 as in 40 days and nights. And 40² + 40² = 56.56². In other words, the diagonal of a 40 x 40 square is 56.56.
There are 15 stones in the Trilithon circle. There are 60 in the outer circle. There are 15 degrees of longitude to each ‘hour.’ There are 60 minutes in an hour.
The outer circle of stones is set on a 108 foot diameter. The distance to the Moon is 108 Moon diameters. The inner circle is on a 45 foot diameter. 45 x 8 = 360… degrees in a circle. 45/8 =5.625!
Looking further at this image for more information that might describe concepts found in the Torah, we discover a central horseshoe of bluestones that number 19. This might also be called a cup of stones. Then there are the 5 pairs of large stones of which we just spoke. Around this lies a complete circle of stones that numbers 59. Around this is the magnificent Sarsen Circle composed of 30 uprights. Surrounding this are 29 markers for the Z holes and 30 Y holes. (Not all of the holes are shown in the image.) And then, this is all surrounded by the 56 outer Aubrey post holes.
So, we have a string of numbers that reads: 19 5 59 30 29 30 56
If you have ever studied the gematria of the Torah, a string of numbers like this will appear familiar. Any given phrase converts to a string of numbers.
Nineteen appears to be a meaningless number. Recall that 950 = 19 x 5 x 10. We see the 5 appear immediately after the 19 above. The five pairs are composed of 10 uprights giving us the complete 19 x 5 x 10 = Noah’s age at death or 950 years. Perhaps 950 was meant to be months not years? 950 is 12 x 79.2? The diameter of our planet is 7920 miles!
19 + 5 = 24. Everyone knows what 24 refers to!!! Yes? 24 hours in a day.
19 + 5 + 59 + 30 = 113 and 113 refers to? 113 = 2 x 56.5 The 56 appears again!
19 + 5 + 59 + 30 + 29 + 30 = 172, 172 = 2 x 86.
Torah researchers might recognize this as the third ‘number’ in the Torah which is Elohim.
And for the science minded, atheist, and doubting Thomases, is the sun not 864,000 miles in diameter?
Also are there not 86400 seconds in a day and 86400 seconds of longitude?
Re-enforcing this idea is the sum of the last two numbers, 30 + 56, which is 86 again.
There is a whole lot of science written in stone numbers here.
The total sum is 228. This 228 is 3 x 76. The period of Halley’s Comet is 76 years. More notably 228 suggests 2 x 28 = 56!
But wait! Did they measure with our modern mile?
Quite possibly the proper way to measure this planet and to preserve the message of the ancient world is to use the standard mile. 5280 feet to the mile means the diameter of the planet is 7920 miles and perhaps reinforcing this is 5280 times 1.5 equals 7920.
Is 7920 in that string of numbers above?
Let’s bring it down so we can have a look. 19 5 59 30 29 30 56
Nope, it is not there. Or? Yes? Yes! It is. 59 + 30 = 89, 30 + 29 + 30 = 89
…………..and…….. 89 x 89 = 7921.
So, they very likely measured the Earth in miles.
And the 19 equals? This should be easy for the scientists. 19² = 361. There are 360 degrees to a circle. There are 360 degrees in a freely rotating hinge as in a Stone -hinge. And remember 4 x 19 is 76 and that repeats the idea of a comet.
But it also means……..
Just another riddle. Here’s a clue. What do scientists, modern and perhaps ancient, use to measure the universe?
