Hopewell is a name of coincidence. It is the name given to the mound builders of Ohio. Adena is the other name bestowed on them. Hopewell comes from the name of the man who settled land on which mounds were situated. Adena, similarly, came from the name of a homestead. Neither name has any historic relevance. Yet when these mounds were laid out, did not their designers Well Hope they would last for eons? Would they have situated them where they had the best chance of surviving? If we can figure out how they were placed will that give us a clue to the knowledge within the minds that placed them?

We have noted the importance of 40 in Judaism. What is 40 miles from nowhere on a vast empty continent? Nothing. But line of latitude 40 runs through the middle of this flat, open terrain. In fact, Newark lies only 2 minutes of latitude north of it. J.Q. Jacobs notes that the Serpent Mound lies at longitude 83 degrees 25′ 52″ and the Newark Earthworks lie at 82 degrees 25′ 48″. This is one degree of longitude separation.1 2 The Serpent holds an egg in its mouth and this egg is an oval 120 feet by 70 feet. The inner diameter of this oval is 76 feet across. We have seen this 70 before. We have seen 12 before and we shall soon see many references to 76.

Surely, this Serpent has something to do with the placement of Newark or vice versa. The Newark Earthworks lies 76.6 nautical miles or 88.15 miles north of the Serpent. Indeed, from the prominently placed Miamisburg Mound the distance is 87.7 nautical miles or 100.9 miles. But these are two local monuments. Do they align with any other great monument? Why was the Newark complex placed here?

Romain posits that the Newark Octagon and the Great Circle are both placed in reference to Geller Hill at a distance of 7 OCD from each. Geller Hill is located at 40 degrees 2′ 12″ N latitude.  Let’s look at that closer 40, 2 and 12. The numbers sound familiar. But the longitude is 82 degrees 27′ 26″. This is not very pretty at all. However….maybe this spot was chosen for another reason. The distance between the Great Pyramid and this innocuous hill in Ohio is 113 degrees 35′ or 113 degrees and .583 degrees. We can see the 583 reminds us of the 584 we saw at East Fork but that can be purely coincidental ….well… until one adds it to 113 and recall the ancients loved to double. So 113.583 equals 2 x 56.7916. What are the odds that 56 and 7916, nearly 7920, would show up here? Consider further that 113 is 2 x 56.5. Let me throw this additional coincidence out. In the story of Noah it rained for 40 days and Noah lived to the grand toothless age of 950 years. Are we supposed to convert that 950 say from years to months, or inches to feet, to obtain 79.16? What other not so pure coincidences can be found at Newark?

The Mystery of Noah’s Age…Revisited

B.L. Freeborn – Oct. 2012 (updated Sept. 2022)

Noah’s age was the original topic of this blog and solving the mystery behind it. Once it is figured out the mystery and the mocking stops, and it is not quite as fun anymore. So, do we really want to solve it?

In earlier posts it was speculated that 950 is a limit and the many ways to convert the number to obtain other numbers was discussed.

Looking back over all those numbers one number should have stood out. Notice that if 950 is inches we obtain 950 / 12 = 79.16 feet and we can also say that if 950 meant months then we obtain the same 79.16 years. This should have been a glaring red flag but most people do not see it as important for one of two reasons. The first reason is their society has already shifted away from the ancient system of measurement and is now using the less scientific (Yes – less!) metric system and so, do not recognize the importance of this number.

The second reason is, although they may live in a country such as the US, still using the more scientific system (yes – more!) of feet and miles, they just do not recognize the number as representing the diameter of the planet they are sitting upon. The average diameter of the Earth is 7920 miles which any educated person should have recognized in 79.16 in a jiffy (but we didn’t).

So let us list the quarrels that will arise from this paragraph:

1 – Is the mile a more scientific system than the metric?

2 – Does Noah’s age refer to the diameter of the planet?

The derivation of the mile system is something of a wonder and leaves one with the chilling realization that as far as science goes, we are just babes lost in the woods. Note just these few simple facts. The number of seconds in a day is 86400. The number of seconds of longitude is 86400, also. The diameter of the Sun is 864000 miles. Each mile is composed of 5280 feet. The average diameter of the Earth is 7920 miles or 5280 x 1.5. The time it takes light to travel from the Sun to earth is 500 seconds and therefore to cross Earth’s orbital diameter is 1000 seconds. It is as if someone long ago chose these units of measure because they reveal the harmony of the universe.

The second question can only be answered by looking at the other ages of the patriarchs for similar information.

By listing the patriarchs, the age at which they fathered a son and the age to which they lived, a table can be formed. If we are diligent we can add the gematria of each man’s name as a first column. We will use the original spelling of the name as found in the Torah and the number value for each Hebrew letter as still used today.

So we have……

MAN’S                             SON          LIVED    TOTAL    YEAR

NAME:       GEMATRIA     BORN        AFTER      AGE      DIED


ADAM                45              130         800        930         930

SETH                 700            105         807         912       1042

ENOSH              357             90         815          905       1140

KENAN              210             70          840         910       1235

MAHALALEL       136            65          830         895       1290

JARED                214           162        800          962       1422

ENOCH                84             65        300          365         987

METHUSALEH     784          187        782          969        1656

LAMECH               90         182        595          777         1651

NOAH                   58        500        350           950         2006       Born in 1056 (biblical count)

This is the compiled list of the generations of Adam. If there is any validity to the idea that Noah’s age divided by 12 represents the diameter of the Earth then something else here must support that idea.

With very little trouble we see that Enoch did not live as long as his sires. In fact, the poor fellow lived about 1/3 of their life spans. He died at the respectable age of 365 years which sounds remarkably like the number of days in a year.

What else?

Noah’s gematria is 58 and his father was 500 when he was born. Compare 58 to the distance Earth travels about the Sun in any given year or just over 584 million miles. Furthermore, compare this 584 to 58,500 (gematria followed by father’s age).

Twice the number of feet in a mile is 10560 and the year Noah was born was 1056.

Here is another example of how this is built to make us look closer. See the 777. The number itself catches our attention with its solid repetition. Does it seem as if it is bracketed by the 950 and 969 to draw our attention even further? And looking closer at the 595 to its left, 969 above it and 782 kitty-corner, we find the average of 595 and 969 is?  782. This repeats the 782 and is very nearly the value of Methusaleh’s gematria of 784. This value reminds us somewhat of the polar diameter of Earth at 7899 miles but not enough to be convincing. However, 784 does equal 14 x 56!

If you care to work on it for yourself, you will find that some numbers are sines, cosines and tangents. This is a mystery worth solving!


Re-writing English History while Solving the Sator-Rotas, Part I

-B.L.Freeborn, (c) Oct. 2012 -last updated Sept. 2022

The “Sator Rotas” to an archaeologist is a trivial, long worn out mystery. To any fifth grader it is a quick puzzle. After the fifth grader explains it to the archaeologist then it becomes an out-of-place artifact.

File:Rotas square from Cirencester.jpg

Sator-Rotas from Cirencester, Wikipedia.

Let us first discover what is known and believed about this grid before we look at the way an un-influenced mind would perceive it.

It is a five by five grid of letters that has been found in several places spanning both time and distance. The oldest is dated to 79 AD from Pompeii. The clear representation pictured below is from Oppede, France. A number of them have been found in England. Others have been found throughout Europe and one has been found in Syria. It is assumed it is in Latin. It is thought to be a secretive sign between Christians but others consider it magical. There are others who think it is a Jewish puzzle.

Before we throw the current translation out, let us reiterate it:

From Wikipedia we have………

“Sator Sower, planter; founder, progenitor (usually divine); originator

Arepo (arrepo) (I) creep/move stealthily towards, also trust, or likely an invented proper name. Its similarity with arrepo, from ad repo, ‘I creep towards’, may be coincidental

Tenet holds, keeps; comprehends; possesses; masters; preserves

Opera work, care; aid, service, (an) effort/trouble

Rotas (rota) wheel, rotate; (roto) (I) whirl around, revolve rotate; used in the Vulgate Psalms as a synonym for whirlwind and in Ezekiel as plain old wheels.”

They continue with …

“One likely translation is “The farmer Arepo has [as] works wheels [a plough]”; that is, the farmer uses his plough as his form of work. Although not a significant sentence, it is grammatical; it can be read up and down, backwards and forwards. C. W. Ceram also reads the square boustrophedon (in alternating directions). But since word order is very free in Latin, the translation is the same.”

Now let’s think about this….. They have been found in England. They have been found in Italy – Pompeii, Portugal, France, and Syria. So is it logical to conclude it is written in Latin? Probably. However – let us pause to think like a modern fifth grader who speaks the language spoken in England at this current time which is conveniently – this one.

What would a fifth grader see?

I suspect he/she could make a rather large list of words very similar to the list compiled below. The first two words any fifth grader is likely to identify are TEN and NET. Surely, the word ten appears four times and when read in the opposite direction they spell net. The four “nets” create a picture which forms a net spread out from the central N.

These are in fact two very revealing words which will lead us forward – momentarily. Our fifth graders would also spot the words SAT and ARE very quickly. A very bright child might find the word OPERA and then OPERATOR. We would not expect them to find TOR since it is not commonly used today but they would see the commonly used English word TENET. They might go on to find POT, OPEN and AT. They of course would not realize that they are finding Modern English words in a puzzle written many years before the creation of the language they speak. Unless!!!! There is something we do not understand about English.

This has led us off topic but it is a necessary deviation. The history of the English language must be checked. Is it possible this is written in modern English or even Old English?


Or that is what we must infer from references such as the quote below from Wikipedia: English Language which does not conflict with other references I have on the subject. (Reference notes are found in Wikipedia article.)

“Historically, English originated from the fusion of closely related dialects, now collectively termed Old English, which were brought to the eastern coast of Great Britain by Germanic (Anglo-Saxons) settlers by the 5th century – with the word English being derived from the name of the Angles, and ultimately from their ancestral region of Angeln (in what is now Schleswig-Holstein).[12] A significant number of English words are constructed based on roots from Latin, because Latin in some form was the lingua franca of the Christian Church and of European intellectual life.[13] The language was further influenced by the Old Norse language due to Viking invasions in the 8th and 9th centuries.

The Norman conquest of England in the 11th century gave rise to heavy borrowings from Norman-French, and vocabulary and spelling conventions began to give the appearance of a close relationship with Romance languages[14][15] to what had then become Middle English. The Great Vowel Shift that began in the south of England in the 15th century is one of the historical events that mark the emergence of Modern English from Middle English.”

So, according to this English, even as Old English, was a dialect developed 400 years too late.

Darn!!! And it works so well in English if you look at the gematria. Like, the four tens actually are made of four 10’s!

Well, they do! Look…..

Using the Hebrew sounds for these letters, not a modern gematria for English letters and not translating them to Greek or Roman gematrias we substitute according to this:

A = 70

E = 1

R = 200

S =  60

T = 9

P = 80

N = 50 but if it considered to be a Hebrew Alef then = 1

let O =  6

S    A    T    O    R                        60      70       9       6    200

A    R   E    P     O                       70    200        1     80        6

T    E   N    E     T                         9         1     50       1        9

O    P   E    R     A                          6       80      1   200      70

R    O   T    A     S                     200         6       9     70      60

By this replacement, using the sounds provided by the Hebrew letters, we observe that indeed the tens create ten. There are four of them around a central 50.

The four tens sum to 40. This is a significant number. A square of sides of 40 has a diagonal of 56.56 which is a number often pointed out as important in these posts.  Or they might see it as a very Biblical number as in “Moses wandered for 40 years and it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.”

When the 40 is added to the 50 it sums to 90. Furthermore, each ten is at 90 degrees to the other which is true if the longitude and latitude of the planet is called a “net” and the four cardinal directions are then at 90 degrees to each other just as shown.

In other words: North, South, East and West are at 90 degrees to each other and each is depicted by the word NET fanning out from the center.

We take this idea one step further. Each degree of longitude and latitude is made of 60 minutes and each of those minutes of 60 seconds. Note that each 9 + 1 or ten when added to the central 50 creates 60. There are four 9’s on the exterior of the net and 4 x 9 = 36 which then repeats the number of seconds in a degree.

Not convinced?

File:Sator Square at Oppède.jpg

Sator-Rotas from Oppede, France, Wikipedia

Hmmm. In this image of the Sator Rotas from France the N is reversed which calls attention to it. The Hebrew Alef and the letter N are very similar. This letter in Hebrew has the value 1. Now if the central  letter is allowed both values, both 50 and 1, then their sum is 51 and 51 degrees is the latitude of Greenwich, England from which longitude is measured today. It is in the  center of both the puzzle and the Net created by longitude and latitude numbered from Greenwich.

If the letters surrounding the center (REPEREPE) are summed, the number 564 is obtained.  This is significant. The value ‘560’ was discussed in the prior post about the Hebrew alphabet. 40, 56, and 79 are the three most important numbers in this secret system. The 40 we have touched upon. The 79 appears as the word AT and might be said to refer to the diameter of the Earth at 7920 miles. It most certainly refers to something the ancients kept as an ultimate secret. Indeed, the word AT is very appropriate. The 56 appears in the sum of the letters REPEREPE (564) surrounding the middle. It is often found in secret writings as 565 or 56.5. If the center is allowed to be 1 then the 565 appears quite nicely. This also repeats in the RPNPR diagonal. 560 + 50 or 56.50?! But that can also be said to be 610 which repeats the 60’s.

Is this all that is hidden here?

No, it is a very plush garden of numerical facts. Notice that our ten’s reveal something else. The closest distance Earth comes to the sun is considered to be 91.4 million miles. Our 9 + 1 + 50 can be re-written as 91.50 miles. Not too bad for a bit of graffiti!

The circumference of the Sun is 2.72 million miles. Ra is the Sun God of the Egyptians. R = 200 and A = 70 …..Ra.  RA appears four times.

More? Yes!

I would be disappointed if the diameter of the Sun was not easily found and there….summing the exterior letters we find it equals 860. The diameter of the Sun is 864,000 miles plus a few.

Here then is another point. Hebrew does not have the letter O so the value for ‘v’, which also serves for letters w and u, was used as 6. There is some logic to using 7 for the O. Seven is the value for the letter ‘z’  in Hebrew. Z is the first letter in zero and zero was originally called ‘cipher.’ If the value 7 is used then the exterior sum is 864 and that perfectly reflects the diameter of the Sun. What is more, ATO would then sum to 86 which would repeat it.

This then is no simple rhyme about farmers with fabricated names tilling soil. It is in fact a dire message.

To obtain this message we must take a daring step. We will declare the establishment, quite respectfully of course, in grave error. For this is a grave matter and an even deadlier message. We will accept that this is not written in Modern English but will allow it to be plain OLD ENGLISH. Why Old English and not French, German or Russian? 10 !!! How is it said in French – dix, in Spanish – diaz, in German – zehn, in Russian – desyat, in Hebrew – yod, in Latin!!! – decem, and in English both old and new – ten!!! So, English it is!

We think these willy nilly old timers knew nothing of longitude and latitude. Maybe that is an incorrect perception as well! We have already seen the 60’s. We even found 610 in one diagonal. The sum of the opposing diagonal SRNRS is 570. What is 570 and why is it pertinent to longitude and latitude? The value of a radian is 57.29 degrees. Radians are used in circular measure. That is important in longitude and latitude, and other matters involving the circular movement of objects.

Shall we explore further? Shall we look at what has become an eerily out-of-place artifact? Is this evidence of time travel or evidence that we just do not understand something?

So, we diligently continue………………………..

We find these words in this little 25 letter grid.

In bold-italics is the Old English Spelling as provided by “The Student’s Dictionary of Anglo-Saxon,” by Henry Sweet, Oxford at the Clarendon Press, 1896. A few spellings are provided by “The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language,” Houghton Mifflin Company, 1976. The Modern English equivalent is then provided. ME denotes Middle English, OF – Old French, and bold-italic – Old English.

From the Sator Rotas we read:

a = a, meaning ………always

ar = ar = meaning……….brass, copper, counting device, ær = early

aras = arise??? aries, arisan = rise, arasian = explore, detect

are = ar = aer = early, reverence, before

tenet = belief, tan  = twig, tænen = of twigs

to = to

top = topp = summit

tor = torr = tor, rock

torot = tarot = Italian 14th century game, plural of Torah

This is a substantial list of Old English words. What is very odd is that the Sator words are closer to modern English than Old English. From this we might easily conclude that the historian’s have misunderstood something. This simple out-of-place artifact suggests Old English was spoken as a distinct language some 500 years before it was supposedly invented.

Perhaps our understanding can be improved by looking at the numbers. They have not all been sought out. This and a more proper translation is the topic of the next post.

We shall let this mystery rest for a few days before we study the numbers.

Sum is = 1450, 1450 x 4 = 5800 or 58…………………………….. 58

Gematria of Noah and circumference of Earth’s orbit

16 exterior letters…………………. 16

Earth moves 1.6 million miles per day

5 x 5 square of letters…………… 5

Diagonal of the square 5² + 5² =7.07²………. 7.07

7 relates to their secret and we are reminded

by the number of days in a week

8 letters surround the middle N and 8 = 2³…………. 2³

The Earth is just less than 8000 miles in diameter.

It is 8000 – 80 miles or 7920 miles.

Diagonal SRNRS sums to 570

Number of degrees in one radian is 57.29

Diagonal RPNPR sums to 610

And who is the author of this ancient puzzle? Whose secret message was this?

English is the modern way of saying Engle, Anglo, or Angle. And how does one determine latitude? Do we not take a measurement in degrees off the Sun? Do we not measure its angle? Perhaps we should call the Sun – Ra and measure its rays? We can deduce that the puzzle is the work of: an Anglo, who knew Hebrew numbers and letters, the Latin Alphabet, and key astronomical values. The author was also initiated into the secrets of the Anglos, Egyptians and the Hebrews.

And so we come to understand the very beginnings of the English language. We now know a little more about who spoke it, when they spoke it, and where the word Anglo for English comes from. We can also date the use of Greenwich as the zero longitude line to the early days of the Christian era or before.

A new understanding is revealed so neatly by a little puzzle!

The Mystery Stone of New Hampshire, Part II

– B. L. Freeborn, July 2012, Updated Sept. 2022

– The clock is ticking, ticking, ticking……

This continues the detailed look at the Mystery Stone of New Hampshire.

The images on the top and bottom are circles with 8 triangles each. They appear as shown in the cropped images. 8 is an interesting number. It can be said to be 2³ and this always make me think of infinity: doubling, doubling, doubling in all directions. When the 8 triangles from the top and bottom are added together it sums to 16. The Earth moves at the rate of 66,624 miles per hour and so in any given day it moves nearly 1600,000 miles around the sun. The world tirelessly turns and turns rotating the heavens around us. It turns like two enmeshed gears. If the two images are put together a gear assembly is created.

Recall, in the prior post we had discussed the group of seven images plus the two on top/bottom creating the number 79. They can just as easily be arranged as 7 and 2 to create the number 72. The rate at which the pole star precesses is one degree per 72 years.

The overall length of the stone is 4 inches and its width is 2 ½ inches. 4 / 2.5 = 1.6. Here appears the 16 again. The distance Earth moves in a day is 1600,000 miles.

And continuing the idea that the oblate sphere represents the Earth, is there not a large white polar ice cap at each pole? A line through the pole points to the pole star. This stone had a hole in its top and bottom so that a staff/pole can be inserted in the bottom and another thin pole can be inserted out of the top. This creates a planet with two ice caps, a pole, and a reminder of the rate of precession of the pole star.

Summing up so far, our stone tells us we have a contemplative people who lived on a planet 7910 miles in diameter that turned at a fixed rate.

So far so good.

Next we look at the Tent / Tepee ….        More to come as we decipher the Mystery Stone…


A Timeless and Ancient Riddle

© 2012 B. L. Freeborn (updated Nov. 2018)

What one thing is father, son and ghost to itself?


1 = 1² = Square Root of 1 = 1/1 = 1×1

It is the mathematical identity principle.

And from One we create all….1 + 1 = 2, 1 + 1 + 1 = 3   and all else….

Let us not forget:

“The Source. There is only One. It is indivisible, exists everywhere, and everything is a part of it. The All is part of all, and all are part of the All.”   —J. Rankin


More on the Aubrey Posts of Stonehenge and a little bit of Torah….

We have been discussing the 56 post holes at Stonehenge called the Aubrey Posts and their use.  I stated they were ceremonial and J. Rankin argues for their astronomical use.

We are probably both right. Consider these further aspects of why they would have used 56 holes and not the more easily divided 60 into 360.

It can be said that 56 suggests 6 – 5 = 1, a representation of God. The One God which is surrounding them especially while they are at the site. While 5 + 6 = 11 is a representation of God in continuance. The circle never ends reinforcing the never ending God force which surrounded them literally and then physically by describing a circle around themselves. Any person who speaks Hebrew knows immediately the association of 5 and 6 to the one God since it is the numbers indicated by the spelling of Jehovah.

Further, consider that there are very few churches that do not represent itself on the outside by a symbol. The plain cross is used by Protestants, an occupied cross by Catholics or Mother Mary, while Temples are marked by the Star of David, etc. Christian Scientists have unadorned buildings. However, even they rely on signs to let everyone know what goes on inside. 56 chalk filled spots outlining the site would have been a cheap, quick and effective method to let everyone know who worshiped there. One spot just does not do it. But 56 relates so well to all else, especially astronomical functions as noted in the previous post.

J. Rankin noted, “The Druids kept cycles of years. Five years is one lustre. Six lustres is one month of years or 30 years. 21 months of years is 630, which is one Druid Era.” There’s that 5 and 6 again.  And 630 divided by 56 = 5.625 x 2. All of this reiterates significant holy numbers.

Much more incredible information is to be had on this number.
