Format: Hardcover
Ancient science regarded numbers as symbols of the structure of the universe.God created the universe according to divine proportion, expressed in number.Through an understanding of number the ancient sages could approach the divine.In ancient China, Babylon, Egypt and other countries the canon of number was venerated as a source of higher knowledge.These concepts form the basis of this book.The author shows how St Mary's chapel at Glastonbury,Stonehenge,the New Jerusalem, and the Great Pyramid all conform to divine proportion.Michell discusses the use of number in Plato and in the Bible.This book holds a wealth of revealing information that will take most readers years to digest.

I can't believe someone would say this book should not be read. For years I have considered this one of the most important books of all times. John Michell is a master of sacred geometry. He does not fiddle any numbers. He does not have to. The geometry of Stonehenge and the dimensions of the solar system speak for themselves. Once you open up this subject and explore it with an open mind, you soon come to the conclusion that there is more to heaven and earth than is dreamt of in our philosophy. This book is a landmark for this exploration. Bonnie Guant, thought a bit fundamental, is another good resource. Sacred geometry has been ignored to long by reductionist thinking. It is a science that appears to have been known to some people long ago, hinted to via gematria; and one we are hopefully in the process of now rediscovering. I am so glad to see it republished. I am waiting for the same for City of Revelation.
