The number 7 is has been important throughout history. In ancient times while standing on Earth, 7 planets were the only orbs that were visible in the sky with the naked eye, at any given time. Babylonians recognized seven planets.
In alchemy, each classical planet (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) was associated with one of the seven metals known to the classical world (silver, mercury/quicksilver, copper, gold, iron, tin and lead respectively). As a result, the alchemical glyphs for the metal and associated planet coincide.

Longgou Grottoes Zhegiang Province, China. Discovered in 1992 under completely ﬂooded caves, the cavern walls and verg high ceilings are covered with horizontal lines Spaced 50 cm apart, with 3000 ton plus load bearing stone pillars somehow erected/carved to support weight from above. No two scientists can agree how ang of this was achieved during the era it was supposedly created.
No historical record or evidence of the work involved to excavate the almost million cubic meters of stone exists. The chiseling was done in such a way that it left a consistent pattern throughout the caves which some experts believe to be symbology, there is also a rumor that seven of the caves have a distribution pattern that matches the seven stars of the big Dipper. #Project_Knowledge
Rock cut architecture is the creation of structures, buildings, sculptures, by carving into solid rock where it naturally occurs. Rock cut architecture is designed and made by man from the start to finish and on many occasions its unexplained how they did it. #project_knowledge #megaliths#ancienttechnology#megalithic
Thailand and India Naga Statues Reptilian God symbolism. The top photo is giant reptilian Goddess with smaller reptilian goddess on her body. Bottom right photo is a snake devouring a planet.
Naga is the Sanskrit and Pali word for a deity or class of entity or being, taking the form of a very great snake specifically the king cobra, a specific type of snake (hooded snake), found in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. #Project_Knowledge
Image on the second slide is a representation of the Big Dipper circling the:
North Star (top L), Little Dipper circling the North Star (top R), both dippers circling the North Star (bottom L), and lines added (bottom R). The Big Dipper forms a swastika and the Little Dipper forms a sauvastika.
The form of this symbol is believed to have originated in the revolution of the stars of Ursa Major about Polaris. This theory is both novel and plausible. In so far as it associates the svastika with celestial motion, it is in accord with the generally received opinion, and if there has been a tendency to connect that motion with the solar journey along the ecliptic, it must at least be admitted that a derivation from stellar rather than solar motion is more consistent with primitive conditions. There can be no doubt but that the svastika presents to the eye a faithful summary of the revolution of the stars of what we call the Dipper, nor is it doubtful that primitive peoples watched the movements of the stars with great care, and gained a surprisingly accurate knowledge of the apparent revolution of the heavens.

Engraved pillar at Udayagiri and Khandagiri Caves, near the city of Bhubaneswar in Odisha. From 2nd century BCE.
About the Swastika. Its use in India dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization city of Harappa, and came to represent Vishnu in Janisim. In Chinese Taoism, the swastika is a symbol of eternity. For Tibetan Buddhism, it is emblematic of the element of Earth. It is a common practice for Hindus to draw Swastika symbols on the doors and entrances to their houses during festivals, which is believed to symbolize an invitation to goddess Lakshmi. #Project_Knowledge
Some people don't like to hear the truth. Some people deny the truth. Some people lie about the truth. Some people live by the truth and actually speak the truth. Some people really enjoy the truth. Some people get broken down by the truth and some people are set free by the truth. #Globalshift #ProjectKnowledge

King Tut's outer shrine was opened and looted twice during ancient times, but the doors of the second of the huge shrines of gilded wood containing the royal sarcophagus still carried the untouched seal, an indication that the contents were untouched and intact.
Rope is one of the fundamental human technologies. Archaeologists have found two-ply ropes going back 28,000 years. Egyptians were the first documented civilization to use specialized tools to make rope. One key why the rope lasted so long wasn't the rope itself, it was the aridity of the air in the desert. It dries out and preserves things. Another key is oxygen deprivation. Tombs are sealed to the outside. Bacteria can break things down as long as they have oxygen, but then they effectively suffocate. It's not uncommon to find rope, wooden carvings, cloth, organic dyes, etc. in Egyptian pyramids and tombs that wouldn't have survived elsewhere in the world.
Secrets In Plain Sight is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history.
Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time. #secretsinplainsight#project_knowledge
Why does that sound so familiar? Many non-religious believers believe that all religions can trace back to some type of Sun God or Sun Worship. Is it not strange that most depictions of holy icons seem to show the holy person with a Sun behind their head. Or is this just another idea that someone has creatively theorized that really holds no validity? Thoughts? #ProjectKnowledge#wintersolstice
Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, is the star in the East.On Dec. 24th it aligns with the three brightest stars in Orion’s belt which are called (and have been called since ancient times) the “three kings.” The three kings line up perfectly with Sirius pointing to the exact spot in which the Sun will rise the next morning. The larger constellation in which this takes place was known to the ancients as the “manger” or the “cradle” which is visible just before dawn on Dec. 25th.
So the three kings or three magi effectually “follow” the star in the East to the manger, the birthplace of God’s Sun at the Winter Solstice. “Easter” also derives from the Eastern Star Sirius. The three gifts of the magi are Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold. Frankincense is an amber resin that was burned at solar temples, Myrrh was known as “tears of the Sun,” and Gold too long represented the Sun in the ancient world. #ProjectKnowledge
One reason may have been a drop in solar energy. Isotopes of carbon in tree rings and beryllium in ice cores show a drop off in solar radiation during much of the period. Also, sunspot observations began around 1610 and show a near absence of reported sunspots between 1645 and 1715. However, recent studies have brought down the relative importance of this solar effect on the little ice age.
Like the medieval warm period, the little ice age appears to have been strongest over the Northern Hemisphere's continents, although it's hard to completely eliminate geographic bias from these early records and there's little evidence from the tropics and southern hemisphere to say what actually happened there. Some researchers argue that both phenomena were primarily regional events. #littleageice#Project_Knowledge
