The Image of Creation inside St Peters, Rome

Settlement in a virgin land and the building of St Peters was Creation much like sermons of hallowing land in the millenium before our era. The sermon was anchored to the number 3, the great circle of the heavens, the cube 216, the diameter of a circle, 36(0). The entire system was tied to sunrise and sunset, the stellar sphere and the horizon. The underlying ideology was based on fastening the cardinal directions and precise geodetic surveys. The foundation of law and justice could not be separated from right proportions and numbers. Administration was of divine origin.

Imbeded into the he pillars that hold up the huge dome are chapels of; 2 lady saints, Helen and Veronika and 2 men saints Andrew and Longinus. Just like all ancient deities were immersed in Christ, so was all the world engulfed under one roof in St. Peters. The magnificent building is based on the proportions; 432, 234, 216, 108 and PI 3.1416

The symbolic plan of St Peters was the same concept as the Cosmic Image of Rangárvellir, Iceland in the scale 1:1000.

The chapel of St Veronica/Berþórshvoll

The myths of Veronika, Helena, Longinus and Andrew were wowen into the 4 sectors of the area around the pope’s altar with a 216 foot diameter. They represent the deities that carry the vault of heaven. In its SW sector where the ideological Primeval Hill is located on a Cosmic Image, Veronica appeares as the wise one, the teacher of good things like residents in this sector of a Cosmic Image do: Njall the peacefull wise old man of Bergthorshvoll. –Ribe, from where Christianity was preached in Denmark. –Isola Sacra from where St. Augustine tought Christianity. –Port Royal outside Paris, –the island Eugeana as the gate to Athens, –the Coopers Hill in Runnimede, London, etc. All those locations mark a new sun of the year’s cycle, prossperity and new learning.

On the Primeval Hill, Veronika showes her veil to everybody with an image of Jesus on it, saying: “He is risen”. Her capel stands at the sector on the sun watch where the sun is at its lowest elevation, Christmas, from there it starts to climb up on the vault of heaven again and new year begins.

The chapel of St Longinus/Stöng

216 feet opposide is the chaple of Longinus where he stands holding his Rod, “Stöng”. It seems the actual SW-NE diameter from lowest to highest elevation of the sun, was symbolised by his Rod.  This place was the most ideal place on a sun watch of a Cosmic Image. As the sun was at its highest elevation it had allready started its decent. Longinus used his spear to kill Christ at the haight of his power –so he may rise up again.

The chapel of St Andrew/Goðasteinn

East from Veronika’s Primeval Hill is the chapel of St Andrew who occupies the same place as Odin’s Goðasteinn on the Cosmic Image. Andrew died a martyrs death on a Greek Cross tilting 45° in the seabed, the cold sector of the sunwatch. Sunrise at this spot meant winter was ahead, the world sailed into the coldest period of the year. This sector was symbolised by archetypal imagery of; manhood, valour, as is embedded in the name, Andrew, which in Greek means: manly, brave. Stamina and wisdom are caracteristics that help a person in the dark, knowing after darkness comes brightness. The color of this place is the dark scale associated with the sea –but with a silver lining, because opposide Silver on the sun watch is the Gold of sun exemplified by archetypal Christian Cross.

The chapel of St Helena/Skálholt

216 feet NW is the chapel of St. Helena representing the place on the sun watch, where sunset meant the comming of summer, which promises eternal life for those who believe. Helena is associated with “The straight, Christian Cross”, which she erected every where she went. Same concept as projected by christians who erected their first church in this sector of the sun watch as the new religion gained foothold in a new land.

The center, the pope’s altar/Steinkross

Lines crossed in the dead center, where Peter, God’s emmisary on Earth, was buried. Over his grave, under the Dome of Heaven is the pope’s altar. From there the Cosmic Image extends 108(000) feet in all directions. In all Cosmic Images discovered, Nations took care to make this their sacred center, their Royal Burrial ground.

Optical world

 

Earth´s celestial equator tilts about 24 degrees relative to its orbital path around the sun. This tilt makes for a belt around Earth´s middle, the Tropical belt. Within it there is no real difference between seasons. The northern edge of the belt is defined by the tropic of Cancer and its southern edge defined by the tropic of Capricorn. Because of the rotation of Earth stars and the sun seem to sail their course within this belt, outside it was considered dead because there nothing moved. The area of the living was considered inside the belt.

Myths have been connected to stars forever. Star signes were a constant background to any tale. In all corners of the world stars were used as signposts to find ones way, Zodiac signs served as prominent markers of the seasons and the almanac.

Delta regions comprise extensive flatlands, formed over millions of years through the accumulation of thick layers of sediment carried there by major river systems. In a sermon of hallowing land, prehistoric man paced an Image of Creation on the delta. On these choice lands for cultivation are evidence of most of mankind’s oldest settlements with the Image of Creation marked there in identical manner all over the world. They were 216000 feet (around 66 km) in diameter and appear to have been measured from southwest to northeast; from a landmark associated with the darkest day of winter, to a place associated with the brightest day of summer. A line was similarly measured from a point associated with the first day of winter in the southeast to one associated with the first day of summer in the northwest. These two axes crossed in the center where there was a holy ground.

The ancient approach is akin to a yardstick, which applies not only to the ancient Image of Creation found in Iceland as the stage of Njalsaga, for recent research has established that the like reference frame was used in antiquity in all parts of the globe, bringing to light a Blueprint up on which cultural areas were later built –such an Image of Creation initiated the famous Stoneage constructions in Europe and underlies most cultivated areas in the world: Jelling, St.Denis, the Vatican, Glastonbury, Avebury and Stonehenge in Somerset, Marble Arch and The Tower in London, are all rooted on a grid, suggesting their location is according to a measured plan that predates them:

Old religion

But what if religion is much older? In archaic history there was a fusion of disciplines, religion became firmly anchored to what Man observed every day, evolving into an instrument for taming chaos, the land. Law and order resided in the starry heavens – Man oriented himself, paced a cosmology on the land. Subsequently he learned to have but one god. Proportions of his measured cosmology fused with esthetics and thoughts which stir in Man’s psyche and gradually assumed divine attributes and was moved inside a church.

The Bible may hold even deeper understanding of the wonder if we decipher its imagery. I propose reading the scriptures as allegory –like old Icelandic skin books.

Orientation


Basic unity was established between the size of the Earth, its distance from the Sun, and one day´s journey for Man through the proportions of a Measured Image of Creation back in prehistory, however, or not, man verbalized the concept.
From the very first, Man has sought to subject his surroundings to measurements, to bring it within his mind’s grasp in a sense not unlike when a landscape painter attempts to recreate his vision on paper. Man’s first units of measurement were based on the proportions of the human body, which offered a comfortable resolution for a nomad who wished to understand what he saw.

The Measure of the Cosmos.
To know the solar cycle, to be able to count days and nights and to know the future, man paced an Image of Creation on the delta of south Iceland when they first came and settled Iceland.
All through history, life was played out in front of a starry background. Stars became essential for understanding any tale.
The paced distances of an Image of Creation were commensurate with the distance a healthy man could walk without stopping during one half of earths cycle on its axis: A healthy man can take one 5 foot pace per one second (Livio Catullo Stechini,s Appendix in Secrets of the great Pyramid, Peter Tompkins, Galahad Books 1997. p. 314.) = 216000 feet in 12 hours.
The Image of Creation served as a Cosmology and a sun watch / almanac. It was paced from the spot marking sunset on the day of its lowest elevation on the sun-watch, to the spot marking sunrise on the day of its highest elevation on the oposide side of the sun watch.
Another line was paced from a spot marking sunrise on the first day winter, to a spot marking sunset on the first day of summer on the oposide side of the sun watch. Those two lines crossed at the cosmology´s center which became sacred ground and a resting place, cemetery: http://www.peturhalldorsson.com/cosmos_all.html.

Make peace between the mind and a strange place, measure your Cosmic Image

Many allege the Bible tells a more comprehensive story in its symbolism, numerology and its allegory, than previously thought. The oldest continuously operating church in the world, built over the cave that tradition marks as the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth is considered sacred by followers of both Christianity and Islam.
Many places resumed their Pagan sacred status in the Christian faith. Many Christian sacred grounds are located on strategic spots paced on the land by its first settlers. The Bible mentions a place called Gilgal in the vicinity of Jericho as the place where Johua and the Israelites made their camp after crossing the Jordan. The resting place, Gilgal, suggests Joshua faced a similar proplem my ancestors faced when they settled Iceland many centuries later.
Land was a living reality in the old religion and was hallowed according to paced proportions during settlement. The sermon of hallowing land served to orient one self in an unknown land by measuring it.
I propose the Israelites paced such image according to a geographical measure before they settled the holy Land. The Church of the Nativity is located 36500 feet due south from Har HaMenuchot, Jerusalem´s First Cemetery. Those two places, the Church of the Nativity and Har HaMenuchot played a prominent role in the land measuring sermon as can be compered to other areas of the world as seen here: http://www.peturhalldorsson.com/cosmos_all.html
Har HaMenuchot was a sacred ground, it was the center of the Israelite´s Image of Creation and it was 216000 feet in diameter (66+km).

 

The orientation of the mind

Many allege the Bible tells a more comprehensive story in its symbolism, numerology and its allegory, than previously thought. One of the things that stands out and connects to my studies is the oldest continuously operating church in the world, built over the cave that tradition marks as the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth. It is considered sacred by followers of both Christianity and Islam.
According to my studies many places resumed their pagan sacred status in the Christian faith. Many Christian sacred grounds are attached to sacred distances paced on the land by its first settlers. The Bible mentions a place called Gilgal in the vicinity of Jericho as the place where Joshua and the Israelites made their camp after crossing the Jordan. The resting place Gilgal suggests Joshua faced a similar proplem my ancestors faced when they settled Iceland many centuries later.
Recent research of the imagery of the allegory of Iceland ́s most famous skin book, Njalsaga, reveales that land was a living reality in the old religion. Before settling virgin land people hallowed it according to known portions. The sermon of hallowing land served to orient one self in an unknown land, the mind made peace with unknown land by implementing an Image of Creation on it.
I propose the Israelites paced such image according to a geographical measure before they settled the land. The Church of the Nativity is located 36500 feet due south from Har HaMenuchot, Jerusalem ́s First Cemetery. Those two places, the Church of the Nativity and Har HaMenuchot played a prominent role in the land measuring sermon as can be seen in: http://www.peturhalldorsson.com/cosmos_all.html
Har HaMenuchot was a sacred ground, it was the center of the Israelite ́s Image of Creation that was 216000 feet in diameter (66+km). If you will, see allso my previous blogs; Petur´s blogs on this matter and my book, The Measure of the Cosmos.

PS. The Measure of the Cosmos – how and why.
The paced distances of an Image of Creation were commensurate with the distance a healthy man could walk without stopping during one half of earths cycle on its axis: A healthy man can take one 5 foot pace per one second (Livio Catullo Stechini,s Appendix in Secrets of the great Pyramid, Peter Tompkins, Galahad Books 1997. p. 314.) = 216000 feet in 12 hours.
The Image of Creation served as a Cosmology and a sun watch / almanac. *It was paced from the spot marking sunset on the day of its lowest elevation on the sun-watch, to the spot marking sunrise on the day of its highest elevation on the oposide side of the sun watch.
Another line was paced from a spot marking sunrise on the day winter started on the sun watch, to a spot marking sunset on the day before start of summer on the oposide side of the sun watch. Those two lines crossed at the cosmology´s center which became sacred ground and a resting place, cemetery,  as evident in all the Images of Creation mentioned here: http://www.peturhalldorsson.com/cosmos_all.html.
The center area was of twofold nature; due south from the center was a seccond center, so to speak, measured 36500 feet south of the center, from there to each side, east and west, 18250 feet in each direction was a karked east-west basic ground line that, together with the Center demarkated an area commensurate to the area within the horizon of a healthy man standing on a flat earth. At the center was played out a symbolic sermon of death.

To make peace between the mind and a strange place was important in the dawn of community living.
