Dear Jachin Boaz 1717(or whatever jb stands for),I cannot resist the urge to comment on your statement regarding Nolans Cross.To me it is adding strength to a thesis that independent observers agree.I know for sure that I am not the only one seeing the Tree of Life in the cross layout,and this I find to be comforting.Myself I noticed it in 2001 and described it in a 2003 writing delivered to Triton Alliance"s Les Macphie when I visited Oak Island to test my theory spade in hand.In 2006 it was published in a book (co-authored with Erlend Loe)which has sold more than 10000 copies.It is due in Poland and Holland this fall.In it I link it to R.C. sources and build a case for one of the Sephiroth as the ultimate point X.My diagram is quite different from yours as it employs the 5 boulders for 5 Sephiroths.The only adjustment is to increase the 293ft distance to 294ft.The top boulder is no longer in-situ and I operate with a top distance of 147ft,not 145ft.147 is twice 294 (the value of Rhodon,BTW).Looking at your diagram it appears to me that you only use two of the boulders directly for sephiroth.The 3 remaining cones have different purposes,but I find it hard to determine what exactly this is.Cone E(the bottom)seems to touch the perimeter of a yellow circle.But why?
Making it simple,following my method,gives you a Tree of 5x8 ratio,or 720ftx1152ft.The R.C.tomb of FAMA has sides of this proportion.Which 1618 book are you referring to for confirmation?
All well and good. I prefer to use the actual dimensions. Even the one foot error in the stem stone is rather large but the 2 foot error in the top stone position is certainly unacceptable. The hole was still in the ground where that stone had been moved from. No way Crooker and Nolan's estimates of its former top position could be off by a full quarter of the stone's diameter.
Why is the bottom of the cross at the bottom of the yellow circle? That circle comes from the two outer additional Sephiroth just as the green circle does. Therefore the two lowest cross points are related. The bottom of the cross obviously doesn't fall on the edge of the Sephira which it is very close to touching because if it did then the stem would be 720 feet from center to bottom, which is a full 2 feet shorter than its actual length. Also, if the second stem stone were directly between the centers of the two Sephiroth which it is close to being between, the distance from the center of the cross would be 415.6921945 feet instead of the true distance of 429.
For your theory to be correct, 3 stones would have to be off by a foot or more from what they really are. Doesn't that tell you something, like that your theory requires substantial revision in order to be regarded as plausible? The dimension to the second stem stone is simply not 294 but 293, which produces a nearly perfect 40,50,90 triangle between the stem and the arms. That's why 293 is significant and 294 is not, even though it may be the Gematria value of the word rhodon. If the value were 293 you might have something, but 294 is simply a coincidentally CLOSE number. Were the Cross on a smaller scale, the difference wouldn't be as noticeable. Since they chose to scale it up to that huge size, they must have intended to depict the actual precise dimensions, and yours is off by a good foot, hardly a slight inaccuracy.
The 1618 Rosicrucian publication I refer to is Mirror of the Wisdom of the Rosicrucians, which you can easily find the full text of on the web.
Now please explain why the Rosicrucians would make a cross which is similar to the constellation Cygnus and place it on Oak Island. I say it is because the top of the Northern Cross (Cygnus) points right to the constellations Cepheus and Cassiopeia, which I believe they associated with Cronus and Rhea. They also believed that the 1572 supernova which occurred in Cassiopeia was a portent of the restoration of the Golden Age. Rather appropriate since Cronus and Rhea were the king and queen of the Golden Age, and all the other gods.
