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.
