The Case for Intent of Encoding Information Within The Geometry of Giza (cont.)
By Edward G. Nightingale
So we have just introduced three new numbers into our 8 x 8 grid, the numbers 1, 2 and 3. Let’s see what the ancient mythologies, in particular ancient Egyptian say about these three numbers. The number 1 is associated with or represented by the Wadjet or Ujat, the “Whole One”, The Eye of Ra and All Seeing Eye. This seems to coincide with our use of the Eye of Ra to represent the 63/64ths with the circle and the square, the feminine and the masculine.
The number 2 in Egyptian mythology represents the duality of the male and female and is the essence of the 4 “pair” or 8 Ogdoad.
The number 3 is associated with the Egyptian Hermetic traditions of Thoth, Thrice Great, or the Supreme Power. The number three or a trinity being at the root of many different cultural belief systems and are not easily overlooked here, we begin seeing a pattern of these same numbers all pointing towards similar symbolical meanings. It seems that the balanced combining of the 2, the Masculine and the 3 the Feminine are critical in obtaining 1 or the “Whole One”.
There is another source that we can find that confirms our use of the square 8x8 grid using the doubling (x2) and tripling (x3) numbers and comes from Plato in his work, Timeus and is explaining how God created man, this is an excerpt from that explanation;
"He first marked off a section of the whole (1), and then another twice the size of the first; (2) next a third, half as much as the second and three times the first, (3), a fourth twice the size of the second, (4) a fifth three times the third, (9) a sixth eight times the first, (8) a seventh twenty-seven times the first." (27)
Pythagoras also is a source to confirm this number sequence known as the “Lambda number sequence” 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 8, and 27, also known to the Pythagoreans as the “Tetrad” and is written in a triangular form, the shape of the Lambda that is the 11th letter of the Greek alphabet and we will discuss the number 11 at a later point. There is much more to discuss here but is beyond the scope of this chapter, for now I am showing the use of this particular numbering sequence in history.
