In Rennes-le-Château, the number 22 instead seems to be more logically linked with the Kabbalah: there are twenty-two steps – steps – in the Tour Magdala and twice eleven steps – steps – on the path that leads up to the Belvedere. In short, Saunière linked the number 22 with “ascending stairways” – climbing up the Tree of Life?
And there are another 22 steps down from the orangery at the other end, balancing the 22 steps up the Tour Magdala, so the sequence along the belevedere is 22 + 11 + 11 + 22. All very harmonious.
Another quote from Jean Luc Robin's book that you might find interesting, lovuian.
The upper section of the garden has two sides which are at right angles to each other. The two ends are joined by a semi-circle, with the Tour Magdala at one end and a kind of glass tower at the other end, making a "winter garden".
If each side of the right angle is prolonged by an imaginary line to create another right angle, then a perfect square is formed. The area of this square is exactly sixty-four times the area of the Tour Magdala. In other words, we are looking at a gigantic chessboard. And this is not the only comparison that can be made with the game of chess. The Tour Magdala is exactly in the position of a chess rook or castle. It must be the black castle, as it's dark and made of stone. The white castle is symbolised by the winter garden, which is a glass-house and which is placed exactly where the other castle begins the game.
Going into the Tour Magdala, one crosses a darkish room (which was the library), to reach the upper terrace, in broad daylight after having climbed twenty-two steps.
At the opposite end, one enters the glass tower in broad daylight to descend a spiral staircase of twenty-two steps, to reach a dark, underground room.
Thus we have the positive and the negative of the same tower, as they are both of the same dimensions and each has the same "turret" containing a staircase of twenty-two treads. The glass tower is the inverted replica of the stone tower.
To get up onto the belevedere, you have to climb a double staircase, which has eleven steps on one side and eleven steps on the other. Not a very difficult piece of arithmetic - eleven and eleven make twenty-two!
In the Tour Magdala, the floor of the library is made up of sixty-four squares, which match the ones found in the villa. Yet again another chessboard, which is also repeated in the church, between the devil and St John the Baptist.
Always, there is this repitition of white and black, light and dark, the opposition between night and day, between good and evil.

Jean Luc was quite brilliant ...I noticed in the picture of the orangery the tower of brick that supports the tower of glass
I can see the two corners of the chess board and the rooks staring each other down
the death certificate
has the time of death eleven o clock and the time the certificate is signed and witnessed is eleven o clock
but then there is Sauniere's Birth date.... of April ....ELEVEN that makes the three Elevens
the other interesting number is seventeen for the Year he died....and that was the day he collapsed
what truly is interesting is the ages are put of the witnesses
fifty nine and forty five but the mayor does not feel the need to put his age down
the stonemason is age forty five
the compass of freemasonry has
Compasses are depicted as having a forty-five degree included angle between the tips
Fifty-nine is the 17th smallest prime number.And with Him are the keys of the unseen treasures—none knows them but He; and He knows what is in the land and the sea, and there falls not a leaf but He knows it, nor a grain in the darkness of the earth, nor anything green nor dry but (it is all) in a clear book. (Al-An'am Surah, 59)
Now this is really a shot in the dark so bare with me
The number corresponding to the last minute in a given hour, and the last second in a given minute
fifty nine has to do with Stonehenge
Stonehenge Moon Calendar
The Stonehenge Moon calendar featured two rings of pits dug into the subsoil. Back-filled with white chalk lumps, thirty Z Holes formed the outer ring, twenty-nine Y Holes formed an inner ring.
A Moon month is 29½ days, 59 days in two months. From the centre, imaginary lines drawn between the trilithons form six segments equal to six weeks of five days, perhaps given the same day names as the Sun calendar. Alternate months had only four days in the fourth week. Six counts around fifty-nine Y and Z Holes equalled 354 days, a twelve-month Moon year.http://www.knowth.com/stonehenge-sacred-symbolism.htm

Richard when I was up on the roof of Rosslyn
I felt I was looking at a chess game
there was circular steeples like cones and then there were the pyramid square ones
it reminded me of Alice and Wonderland
