Mark Vidler – Sacred Geometry of the Earth

Mark Vidler discusses Sacred Geometry of the Earth – The Ancient Matrix of Monuments and Mountains. From continent to continent across the globe, Mark Vidler and Catherine Young reveal that order is everywhere on Earth. On remote islands, soaring summits, and level deltas, they unveil natural topographic patterns related to pi, the golden ratio, and right-triangle geometry. And as the planet’s design emerges, it becomes clear that this hidden order in nature decided the location of ancient monuments the world over.

Through detailed maps, Vidler and Young show how the locations of megalithic monuments reflect and enhance a natural pattern on the Earth that connects its major features. The authors examine the geography of many islands, and each continent, including Antarctica, to show how the highest peak on each landmass falls on a line connecting coastal extremes. They reveal how circles of standing stones and man-made mounds mark intersections of these lines. They explore the connection between the Nazca lines in Peru, and the Amazon, Nile, and Ganges deltas, and explain how the locations of the Giza pyramids, Stonehenge, and Machu Pichu are integrated into the natural design on Earth. As they uncover geometric patterns line by line, point by point, they reveal how the world’s ancient monuments represent a form of trans-global communication that far predates the written word. Perhaps the biggest mystery in all of this, however, is how, in ages before flight, satellites, and Google Earth, ancient peoples could have had a truly global picture of the Earth that we today are still rediscovering.
