Was our solar system designed to produce humans? (cont.)
By Christopher Knight and Alan Butler

The rhythm of the solar system

The fact that the 366 system worked so perfectly for the Earth, Sun and Moon caused us to look at every other planet and moon in the solar system. Nothing. None of our neighbours came close to fitting the system. We even tried using each planet's own 'spin to orbit' value, rather than the Earth's 366 - but this also drew a blank. There seems to be something very special about our planet and our Moon's relationship with the Sun.

We stated to look closely at every aspect we could and the following values fell out:

366

- The number of complete rotations of the Earth in a year

- The number of MY (Thoms) in a Megalithic second of arc on the Earth

- The percentage size of the Earth compared to the Moon

100

- The number of Thoms (MY) in a lunar Megalithic second of arc

- The number of times the Earth rotates faster than the Moon

400

- The Sun is larger than the Moon

- The number of kilometres the Moon turns on its axis in a day

- The number of times the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun

10,000

- The number of times faster that light travels in a vacuum compared to Earth's speed of orbit around the Sun

- The number of Earth turns in an orbit of the Sun x the number of Earth turns in one lunar orbit of the Earth

- The exact number of times that the time difference between a sidereal and solar day fits into one orbit of the Moon.

40,000

- The number of kilometres to Earth's polar circumference

- The number of Thoms (MY) in a solar second of arc

1,000,000

- The number of times faster that light travels in a vacuum compared to the Moon's speed of orbit around the Earth

109.25

- The number of Earth diameters to the Sun's

- The number of solar diameters across the maximum diameter of the Earth's orbit around the Sun

27.322

- The number times the Earth turns in one turn of the Moon

- The percentage size of the Moon to the Earth

- The number of Megalithic seconds of time it takes the Moon to pass across one Megalithic second of arc in the sky.
