## Hermetic Theory of Creation Series

Part 2: Hermetic Theory of Creation: God is an Artist Who Crafted Platonic Solids from the Tapestry of Time

Part 3: Sacred Geometry in Egyptian Myths and the Great Pyramid

Part 4: Messages from the Great Pyramid Builders Conceal Quantum Theory of Space-Time

In the Western belief system, there’s a prevailing notion that we are at the forefront of scientific discoveries, continually unveiling the universe’s secrets. Yet, an alternate perspective suggests that we might simply be rediscovering ancient knowledge, insights that civilizations held many millennia ago. This article delves into the Great Pyramid of Giza, using hermetic decoding to unravel the wisdom of its builders. Surprisingly, evidence suggests that these ancient architects had a grasp on the discrete model of spacetime, a concept eerily resonant with today’s quantum physics. As we explore the pyramid’s complex geometry and its hidden knowledge, it becomes increasingly evident that there’s a convergence between ancient wisdom and modern science. Perhaps, in our quest for knowledge, we’re not trailblazers but rather students of antiquity, relearning the profound truths once known by our ancestors.

The article Hermetic Theory of Creation: God is an Artist Who Crafted Platonic Solids from the Tapestry of Time unravels an enigmatic connection between temporal tapestries corresponding to Sumerian numbers for measuring time and counting the faces in Platonic solids. The theory crafted to explain this correlation is based on the metaphor of the Universal Mind being an artist trying to build shapes using rules of artistic creativity studied in Science of Art: The Artisan Theory of Mimetic Truth, Meaning, and Beauty. The theory thus shows how seeds of spatial forms – Platonic Solids emerge from atoms of time as some sort of temporal molecules as a result of the operation of the Universal Mind, which operates according to rules that can be described mathematically.

The theories presented in my previous articles were formulated as deductive theories. However, as usual, the final formulation of results does not unveil all the heuristics used by an author to uncover these results. In this article, I will describe the heuristics that were instrumental in making these discoveries. They are the method of hermetic interpretation of texts. Exposing these heuristics may be useful for subsequent development.

First, I will outline the findings that directed me to the source of information — the hermetic decoding of messages related to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Next, I will present the methods of hermetic decoding in a clear and comprehensible manner. Subsequently, I’ll illustrate how solely applying these decoding methods can elucidate the basic principles of an abstract model of discrete spacetime, as presented in my earlier work, using only the information conveyed by the builders of the Great Pyramid. We’ll examine the alignment of this model with contemporary physics theories and discuss its potential as a blueprint for constructing a Quantum Theory of Time-Space. In conclusion, we’ll chart the course for future research.

## The Enigma of the Great Pyramid

The Great Pyramid of Giza stands as a testament to ancient ingenuity. Its precise design and construction showcase the remarkable mathematical and engineering prowess of its builders. Researchers with an engineering background, such as Robert Bauval, have argued that the level of precision and magnitude displayed in the pyramid would require technologies more advanced than those available during the fourth dynasty. This period is when archaeologists believe the Great Pyramid of Giza was constructed.

Interestingly, studies of the Great Pyramid reveal that, in addition to the Egyptian measurement system (based on Royal cubits), the pyramid’s builders seemed familiar with both the Metric System and the Imperial System. These systems appear intricately intertwined, as observed in the work of Alan Green.

Many researchers have highlighted peculiar mathematical patterns within the pyramid’s construction. Some of its proportions suggest that its builders possessed knowledge of mathematical constants that we only identified in recent centuries. A particularly striking example is the remarkable coincidence where the latitude of the Great Pyramid’s chamber matches the speed of light, measured in meters per second, with impressive precision.

As evidence of advanced knowledge of geodesy, Randall Carlson, an architect, mason, and expert in Sacred Geometry, has extensively studied the Great Pyramid of Giza. He asserts that the pyramid is a 1:43,200 scale geometric representation of the Earth’s Northern hemisphere, accurately reflecting the difference between the Earth’s equatorial and polar radii. Carlson also points out several other correlations between the Great Pyramid and various spatial and temporal aspects of the Earth.

The architects of the Giza Plateau might have been the forefathers of what we now recognize as Hermeticism – a philosophy built on the principle of correspondence between the heavens and earth and the principle of analogy. This belief is supported by the Orion Correlation Theory, proposed by researchers like Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock, which draws parallels between the location of the three largest pyramids at Giza and the stars of Orion’s Belt.

## Shakespeare, Da Vinci, and Secret Societies

Alan Green, a Shakespearean scholar, musician, and adept cryptographer, embarked on a journey to decrypt the mathematical intricacies encrypted within the proportions of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Green argues that these geometric secrets, combined with the pyramid’s geographic coordinates, are meticulously concealed within Shakespeare’s sonnets and can be deciphered through the lens of angular cryptography. He substantiates a captivating hypothesis wherein the literary genius of Shakespeare might have been the brainchild of a clandestine congregation of influential British aristocrats. These aristocrats were privy to secret codes contained in the Great Pyramid and likely possessed some remnants of the knowledge of its builders (see BardCode) .

Modern polymath Robert Edward Grant, in collaboration with Alan Green, has demonstrated that Leonardo Da Vinci had not just a deep understanding of the Great Pyramid of Giza’s mysteries but also a detailed knowledge of its structure. Their research compellingly proves that Da Vinci encoded the exact location of the chambers within the Great Pyramid into his renowned artwork, the “Vitruvian Man”, bridging antiquity and Renaissance ingenuity in a startling display of mathematical and artistic harmony.

It is important to underline the logical consequences of these findings about the knowledge of the intrinsic structure of the Great Pyramid encoded in the prominent work of art and literature. In some form, the builders of the Great Pyramid, whom I will call simply Builders in the rest of this article, established chains of messages that they wanted to pass to posterity. One of the messages is the geometric encoding contained in the Great Pyramid. Yet another chain of messages is the secret societies of initiates entrusted with the knowledge of the Builder. If this is true, the potential implications of these revelations are profound, inviting a deeper investigation into the clandestine influence on human history and knowledge.

## Alternative Avenues for Investigations

Let’s enumerate the claims presented in our brief review above:

- The Builder had advanced knowledge.
- The Builder established a chain of initiates with access to this advanced knowledge.
- Shakespeare’s works were written by a collective of such initiates.
- The Great Pyramid and its initiates may carry a message intended for future generations.

These claims are certainly controversial. Multiple avenues exist for investigating them, ranging from in-depth validation efforts to outright dismissal due to their controversial nature. While many researchers often dive into these debates or choose to overlook such claims altogether, I don’t aim to tread these well-worn paths in this investigation.

Instead, let’s embark on a different path: assume all these claims are true and delve into the logical outcomes stemming from such assumptions. This uncharted route involves accepting the claims and pondering the questions and scenarios that naturally follow. This approach guides our exploration in this investigation, leading us to possibly undiscovered insights and understandings.

## The Intended Message of the Builders

The first question we investigate is about the character of a message the Builders might have been trying to send us. What were the Builders truly aiming to express through their architectural marvels? Encoding constants by selecting precise geographic positions or determining specific angles could relay a message regarding the builders’ state of knowledge and expertise.

Were they signaling an awareness akin to our present-day understanding? If this was the message and if we receive it, why should this have high value for us? While such a revelation may spark historical debates and eventually lead to rethinking our history, it might not offer any novel perspectives to our current breadth of scientific knowledge.

However, there is another batch of information hermetically encoded in the Great Pyramid geometry that sheds a completely different light on the possible nature of the message that the Builder wanted to convey to us.

## The Geometry of the Pyramid Is the Key Message

My personal quest to decipher the messages from the Builders was ignited by a remarkable discovery made by Alan Green. His findings unearth a more profound message concealed within the Great Pyramid’s geometry. Green unearthed that various ratios, derived from the measurements of a four-sided pyramid with a slope of 51.84 degrees, concurrently encode numerous mathematical and physical constants, such as the Planck constant and the fine-structure constant. Remarkably, this encoding remains consistent regardless of the pyramid’s actual dimensions, relying solely on a slope of 51.84 degrees. This insight by Green hints at a more profound message from the Builders, presenting the Great Pyramid of Giza as a symbolic embodiment of an abstract mathematical concept.

This unveiling of a mathematical figure that harbors a diverse array of physical and mathematical constants conveys a distinct and compelling message. The insight from the Builders nudges us to ponder over the mathematical properties of a four-sided pyramid with a slope of 51.84 degrees, inviting us to unravel how such a straightforward geometric shape can encapsulate numerous significant physical and mathematical constants.

*The Builders’ message lies in this question: How can a single geometric form encompass a vast expanse of information about our physical universe, encoded within its dimensional ratios? *

The resolution to this question holds the potential to offer profound insights into the very fabric of the universe itself.

## What Nature of Knowledge Did the Builders of the Great Pyramid Truly Possess?

The film “Foundation” narrates the story of an advanced galactic civilization that, foreseeing its own collapse, embarks on a project to encode its substantial knowledge for future generations. This endeavor aims to ensure that future humanity can decode this knowledge and reconstruct civilization from the remnants of barbarity to newfound greatness.

From our contemporary perspective, we perceive our civilization as advanced. Nevertheless, our knowledge and technology may appear primitive to a truly advanced civilization. Drawing a parallel with “Foundation,” Robert Edward Grant posits that the Great Pyramid of Giza, along with secret chains of initiates, is the foundational project of the ancient pyramid builders. This undertaking is intended to aid us in reviving their knowledge and constructing a civilization far more advanced than our current one. This notion shall hereby be referred to as Grant’s Hypothesis.

Grant’s Hypothesis aptly summarizes the assumptions under which we are conducting this investigation, adding to them a sense of grandeur. Assuming the validity of Grant’s Hypothesis, let’s delve into its implications. Again, the implications manifest as further questions.

## Tracing the Knowledge of the Pyramid Builders

If Grant’s Hypothesis holds true, a comprehensive examination of all possible sources of encoded messages from the builders is essential. It is presupposed that this knowledge was hermetically sealed, accessible only to a select few initiates. The discoveries by Green and Grant in the works of DaVinci and Shakespeare are surmised to be echoes of the pyramid builders’ profound wisdom. But where else might we discern vestiges of their erudition? Where else might traces of their knowledge be found?

Egypt’s revered myths were penned by adept Egyptian hierophants, suggesting a likely repository of hermetically encoded wisdom. It is plausible to assert that the Egyptians, as primary torchbearers of this ancient knowledge, imparted their insights to luminaries like Pythagoras and Plato, seeding future enclaves of esoteric understanding.

Alan Green’s research uncovers the intrinsic relationship between the Metric System, the Royal System, and the Royal Cubit, suggesting that this system of measurement and their interconnections are part of the encoded message. My own research, on the Sumerian Theory of Time, posits that our division of time is a message from the Builders.

In summary, potential avenues to explore for remnants of the builders’ knowledge include:

- Hermetic encoding within Egyptian myths.
- The Sumerian Unit of Measurement of Time.
- Insights from Pythagoras and Plato that were possibly learned from Egyptians.
- The relationship between the Metric System, the Royal System, and Egyptian measures.
- Hermetic encodings in the myths and temples of ancient civilizations such as South America and India.

This structured approach allows for a comprehensive exploration into the elusive knowledge of the pyramid builders, potentially uncovering long-lost wisdom and insights that could reshape our understanding of history and the universe.

## Unveiling Hermetic Secrets: A Guide to Decoding

### Understanding Hermetic Decoding

The power of symbols is evident in disciplines like mathematics, physics, and chemistry. However, we often overlook their deeper philosophical implications. In Greco-Roman culture, symbols offer a compact representation of objects or ideas. Yet, Hermetic symbols, embedded in myths, dreams, and alchemical writings, often masquerade as tangible objects, thus obscuring their meanings. The challenge, however, lies not in their complexity but in shifting our perception. Similar to dream interpretations, the key to understanding myths lies in associations – connecting objects with their inherent qualities rather than focusing on the objects in isolation.

Consider one of the most renowned dream interpretations: Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream from Genesis. In Pharaoh’s dream, he stands on the riverbank when seven fat cows emerge from the river, followed by seven lean cows that ate up the seven fat ones yet remain lean. Pharaoh then dreams again, this time seeing seven full and healthy ears of corn growing, followed by seven withered ears growing after them. The withered ears devour the good ears. Joseph interprets the two dreams as one. The seven fat cows and full ears symbolize prosperous years, and the seven lean cows and withered ears symbolize the ensuing years of famine.

Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream serves as a guide to interpreting Hermetic symbols. By the standards of Hermeticism, it is indeed a comprehensive manual for dream interpretation. However, it remains a Hermetic text. Thus, it is both a riddle and a manual. The text provides one example of Hermetic interpretation. The challenge for the student is to deduce the complete methodology of Hermetic interpretation and formulate it into a manual. Let us address this challenge and create a manual for Hermetic interpretation based on this story.

Firstly, we must identify fundamental cultural symbols. For example, a river often serves as a metaphor for the passage of time in many cultures. For Egyptians, this was an inherent metaphor embedded within their language structure. Various grammatical rules that govern the tenses of Egyptian verbs involve operations with the hieroglyph for water, Nu.

Secondly, our focus should shift from tangible objects to their abstract attributes – the properties and relationships of these objects should be seen as symbols. The seven cows can be interpreted as a set of seven entities emerging over time. What could these entities represent in terms of time? Perhaps weeks, days, or years. The robustness of the cows stands for prosperity or abundance, while their gauntness represents scarcity or lack. The act of eating signifies the depletion of resources.

Lastly, the essence of Hermetic interpretation involves crafting a logically consistent narrative, utilizing the characteristics of the objects in the scene (rather than the objects themselves) as symbolic storytellers. This complex process demands a logically consistent and pertinent narrative. A coherent interpretation derived from these symbols would be that the seven healthy cows and ears of grain represent years of prosperity, while the seven gaunt cows and shriveled ears signify the subsequent years of famine.

The myth of Joseph interpreting Pharaoh’s dream describes one of the most ancient techniques of Hermeticism. Much like methods rooted in number, weight, and measure, this type of Hermetic encoding remains resilient to language changes, ensuring that the core insights persist intact across various translations.

In earlier times, the tale of Joseph interpreting Pharaoh’s dream stood out as one of the few resources where students could glean insights into the art of Hermetic decoding. Today, we inhabit a distinct era. The early 20th century saw luminaries like H.P. Blavatsky and Manly P. Hall contribute immensely to our understanding of Hermetic principles. Additionally, the groundbreaking research by Carl Jung ushered in a revolutionary phase in psychology, delving deep into the collective unconscious and intertwining alchemy with dream interpretation.

### BardCode and CodeX

The year 2020 ushered in a substantial influx of ancient knowledge into public media sources. Platforms like the YouTube channel BardCode and Gaia TV’s CodeX have emerged as valuable resources for learning the techniques of Hermetic decoding. Through the clear and comprehensive explanations provided by Alan Green and Edward Grant, viewers can gain insight into their discoveries. The rich visual material accompanying the lessons further enhances understanding. The most effective way to master Hermetic decoding is by avidly watching these programs, meticulously observing the demonstrated Hermetic techniques, and attempting to assemble these techniques into a comprehensive decoding manual. The subsequent subsection will provide a set of heuristics that we will use to decode Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116.

### Practical Heuristics for Decoding

- Spot the Anomalies: Errors, aberrations, or typographical peculiarities often indicate coded elements. For instance, oversized dots might hint at connections.
- Anagram Play: Key terms, especially repeated ones or titles, can often be rearranged to unveil hidden messages.
- Seek Connections: Correlate messages from anagrams with referenced objects or themes in the text.
- Validation: A successful decoding will resonate with the text’s apparent meaning, ensuring its accuracy.
- Hierarchical Secrets: Easier puzzles often serve as gateways to more intricate enigmas. Recognize this layered approach in Hermetic works.

## Indian Riddle of Space, Time, and Mind

Myths have long been vehicles for conveying deep wisdom, especially in India. Fashioned in a Hermetic style, these narratives often bear encrypted messages. Scholars from ancient to modern times have viewed these tales allegorically, offering insights into intricate philosophical dilemmas. Take, for instance, Sadhguru’s elucidation of the nine avatars of Vishnu, which symbolizes the evolutionary development of consciousness on Earth. Explore his insights in the video: Theory of Evolution – 15,000 Years Before Charles Darwin!

In Indian Vedic philosophy, the esteemed trinity of Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma stands as profound symbols of Time, Mind, and Space, respectively. Delve into the essence of Shiva, and one observes his roles as creator, preserver, and destroyer, seamlessly spanning past, present, and future. This firmly anchors him as the embodiment of Time. In parallel, the characteristics and tales of Vishnu and Brahma resonate with the concepts of Mind and Space. Given Vishnu’s association with the Mind, it’s fitting that his avatars, as suggested by Sadhguru, represent the evolving consciousness on Earth.

The preeminence of these deities is frequently debated in the revered Indian scriptures known as the Puranas. Each deity, championed by their respective followers, claims their dominance. Philosophically, this debate translates into a question about the supremacy of Space, Time, and Mind. What was there in the beginning? I delved into this very question during a reflective walk on May 29, 2023.

My exploration into various philosophical creation theories predominantly emphasizes the role of the Mind. Among these theories are those of emanation employed by Gnostics and Kabbalists, where God progressively reveals Himself through a sequence of Aeons or Sephirots. I have also studied Hegel’s dialectic, in which the Universal Mind continuously unfolds itself through a process of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis, thereby manifesting its inherent rational structure within nature, human history, and individual consciousness. Moreover, I have ventured into New Age mysticism and geometric creation theory, which underscore the Mind’s function within space, culminating in the creation of the Seed of Life. However, a glaring observation was the absence of a theory that foregrounded Time, even though Shiva, as Time’s embodiment, holds a revered position in Indian lore.

The central question emerged: Could there exist a creation theory where Time is the sole entity in the beginning? If this is the case, how should one symbolize Time? Is there a mystical emblem that stands for Time? Upon further investigation, I discerned that the Pythagorean Tetractys symbolizes Time.

## Decoding Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 Reveals that the Pythagorean Tetractys Represents Time.

Sir Patrick Stewart holds a special inspiration from Sonnet 116, a feeling shared by many, including myself.

*Let me not to the marriage of true minds**Admit impediments. Love is not love**Which alters when it alteration finds,**Or bends with the remover to remove.**O no! it is an ever-fixed mark**That looks on tempests and is never shaken;**It is the star to every wand’ring bark,**Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.**Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks**Within his bending sickle’s compass come;**Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,**But bears it out even to the edge of doom.**If this be error and upon me prov’d,**I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.*

Remarkably, the sonnet was misnumbered as 119 in the original edition. For a Hermeticist, this signals that the sonnet conceals a deep secret. The mystery grows when we discover that the number 116, interpreted as sexagesimal 11;6, converts to decimal 666. The only misnumbered sonnet points to the most famous number in the Bible, signaling a significant secret.

Let us attempt to decode the sonnet using the method Alan Green demonstrates in BardCode. First, we examine anagrams of repeated words. Running “love-love” through an anagram solver, we find the word “evolve.” “Alters-alteration” yields the word “trilateral,” referring to a triangle. Solving the anagram for the words “remover-remove” gives us the words “revere” and “evermore.” From these words, we can construct the meaningful phrases “revere trilateral” and “evolve trilateral evermore.” These phrases lay the foundation for further decoding. The sonnet appears to deal with a triangle to revere. For a Pythagorean, this triangle is the Pythagorean Tetractys. The other phrase invites us to evolve the Tetractys, likely meaning to unfold the Tetractys into a sequence of triangular numbers.

What does the reference to the Tetractys signify? The primary subjects of the sonnet are Love and Time. However, the hidden message pertains to the Tetractys. While the Tetractys might not symbolize love, can it represent time? If so, how? Physics explains that the concept of time arises from observing the ratio between periodic processes. The relations between rows of Tetractys can be construed as a ratio of time period or frequency. The pinnacle of Tetractys is either the fastest or the slowest process. We may consider both options, but the assumption that the top represents the fastest process with the shortest (atomic) period presents us with an interesting picture. It allows us to think about the top node as an atomic period of time and consider Tetractys as a map of phases of four concurrently running processes. We then can create a picture that shows four processes running synchronously, which I call the Temporal Tapestry. Our focus gravitates towards a cycle where all processes wrap up in harmony; this occurs over 12 atomic periods.

If we interpret the pinnacle of Tetractys as love, the geometric pattern in the figure resonates with the content of the sonnet. The node corresponding to the pinnacle of Tetractys, which we associate with unity and love, “does not alter when it alteration finds.” Now, let us consider that love “does not bend with the remover to remove.” Let us bend the Temporal Tapestry into a circle, removing the top node. Amazingly, the three rings of the bent picture correspond to the pattern of the Zodiac.

The inner circle differentiates between positive and negative zodiac signs, the outer circle groups zodiac signs by elements, while the central circle categorizes them as cardinal, mutable, or fixed. This finding validates our assumption that the sonnet is a recipe for how to build a model of time from Tetractys.

The coded message suggests “evolve trilateral evermore.” We can consider temporal palettes of different configurations and look at corresponding temporal tapestries.

Such exploration, detailed in Revealing Secrets of Sumerian Theory of Time, has allowed us to derive nearly all the foundational divisions of time from the lengths of various temporal tapestries, depicted as count sequences from 1 to N. Here is a concise summary of the discoveries describing time numbers and corresponding temporal palettes:

- 6 days of creation: (1, 2, 3)
- 12 months, 12 hours on clock dial: (1, 2, 3, 4)
- 60 minutes in an hour, 60 seconds in a minute : (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
- 168 hours in a week:(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
- 24 hours in a complete day-night cycle: (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8)

The discovery of the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a week perfectly aligns with the words of the sonnet: “Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks.” This further solidifies our assumption that the sonnet indeed contains the secret Sumerian model of time – the most profound secret hidden within the Tetractys figure.

Thus, we’ve demonstrated how the secret Sumerian theory of time, a model centered around three concepts – the Temporal Palette, Temporal Tapestry, and Timewheel, which were explained in the previous article in a purely deductive form, has in fact been unraveled from the text of Sonnet 116. This investigation was prompted by the fact that Sonnet 116 was mistakenly numbered as 119 in the first edition and the connection between the numbers 116 and 666 through the Sumerian sexagesimal number system.

## Decoding Egyptian Myths: Primordial Waters “Nu” as Temporal Tapestry

The intricate layers of coding discerned in the creations of DaVinci and Shakespeare beckon us to question the possible existence of similar encryptions within the literary canvases of Egyptian hierophants. Our limited understanding of Egyptian myths and narratives potentially hides a treasure trove of concealed messages, waiting to unveil deeper insights into the true nature and purpose of pyramids.

The right assumption in this case is that the people who wrote these myths possessed the secret knowledge encoded in Shakespeare, and they knew more. If we assume that the idea of Tetractys as time was familiar to them, what can Egyptian myths reveal to us?

In the Heliopolitan creation myth, the universe began with the primordial waters of Nu (Nun), an infinite expanse of watery chaos. From these waters, Atum-Ra emerged, often simply referred to as Atum, representing the all-encompassing essence of the cosmos. Atum-Ra appeared on the Benben stone, a four-sided pyramid symbolizing the primordial mound. This stone was later venerated in the city of Heliopolis and became the inspiration for pyramidions, the capstones of ancient Egyptian pyramids.

Upon his emergence, Atum-Ra exercised his prodigious creative force to bring forth eight younger gods: Shu and Tefnut, the gods of air and moisture, followed by Geb and Nut, representing earth and the sky, who in turn birthed Osiris, Isis, Seth, and Nephthys, the deities embodying vitality, health, chaos, and protection, respectively. Through the collaborative and sometimes conflictual dynamics of these deities, the organized cosmos, as perceived and revered by the ancient Egyptians, emerged into existence.

For a student deeply engrossed in Hermeticism, myths are not mere tales; they are complex riddles, where deciphering one could unlock the secrets of another. Egyptian myths are particularly layered with metaphors, and one of these layers resonates with the principles of sacred geometry, a topic I explore in Sacred Geometry in Egyptian Myths and the Great Pyramid. However, the myth of BenBen emerging from the waters of Nu hints at even deeper enigmas.

The connection between water and time is a basic understanding well-known to every Hermeticism student. When a student unveils the more profound secret of the Temporal Tapestry, the intertwining association between water and time unfolds with even greater clarity. Encountering the symbol of the primordial waters of Nu, the student now perceives it in a new light, aligning the waters of Nu with a specific and significant symbol of *Temporal Tapestry*.

## The Geometric Enigma: Benben’s Emergence from the Waters of Nu

The depiction of Benben rising from the waters of Nu poses a compelling geometric puzzle for the student familiar with the concept *Temporal Tapestry*: How can the figure of a pyramidion emerge from the apex of the temporal tapestry?

To sculpt a pyramid, one must seek out triangles within this representation. This quest, in itself, is yet another riddle. The top row epitomizes unity (orange dot), a state of constancy that invariably preserves its essence. Following this, the second row embodies duality (red and green dots), illustrating a rhythmic alternation between two polar opposites and exemplifying pure reflectional symmetry. The elements that most closely resemble triangles in this depiction are the rotation symmetry patterns found in the third row (violet, orange, and green) as shown below.

Visualize those three subsequent dots as vertices of a triangle. Through this observation, a connection is established between geometric triangles and triangular symmetry patterns, a realization attained by deciphering this Hermetic conundrum. A triangular form crystallizes as a compact representation of all these intricate symmetries woven into the third row of the temporal tapestry.

From the temporal tapestry of length 12, four instances of the triangular pattern can be identified:

By uniting these patterns, we architect a pyramid.

Intriguingly, this act of construction offers a solution to the geometric puzzle set forth by the Egyptian creation myth. In this narrative, the Benben, symbolic of the primordial mound, majestically ascends from the primordial waters of Nu, a representation that parallels our temporal tapestry.

When we align the waters of Nu with the temporal tapestry, the tale of Benben’s ascent from the waters of Nu transforms into a geometric challenge. What is the endgame of this challenge? Similar to the myth of Joseph interpreting Pharaoh’s dream, the correct premise is that this puzzle, while seemingly intricate, essentially serves as a guidebook, elucidating the decoding methodology for other significant elements.

## From the Enigma of Benben to the Rules of Creation

Let’s delve deeper into the processes undertaken to decipher the geometric mystery of Benben. In our quest, we meticulously observed patterns within the rows of the temporal tapestry. Our journey led us to transform patterns symbolizing the symmetries of triangles into actual triangles. In uniting these triangles, an image of a pyramidion was born, simultaneously crafting a square composed of these triangles. Here, we fashioned an art form, utilizing elements extracted from the third row of the temporal tapestry as building materials and drawing inspiration from the emerging square.

The steps taken to solve the Benben enigma echo the foundational principles of creation itself. In observing and understanding the patterns of the temporal tapestry, we glean insights into the inherent order and symmetry of the universe. The transformation of symbolic patterns into tangible geometric forms represents the manifestation of the physical realm from the abstract. The act of uniting these forms to construct a more complex structure symbolizes the intricate interplay of elemental forces that give rise to the multifaceted universe we inhabit.

What does this creative process imply, and how can we derive universal rules from it? Here are some rules from the previous article Hermetic Theory of Creation: God is an Artist Who Crafted Platonic Solids from the Tapestry of Time.

**Rule of Patterns**: It’s posited that the Universal Mind interprets the temporal tapestry in various directions: left to right, right to left, top to bottom, and vice versa. It relentlessly seeks patterns, with unique patterns birthing distinct Forms.**Rule of Identity**: Once a pattern crystallizes, it evolves into a distinct Form, leading its own existence. This abstract Form, which embeds a specific pattern, can be used to dissect the temporal tapestry into unique objects. These objects can serve as building materials for artistic innovation.**Rule of Creation**: Using existing Forms as references, the mind crafts new constructs, creating art that reflects existing forms in a novel way. The artistic Mind gravitates towards Harmony which is conceptualized as symmetry and resemblance of Forms.

I did not deduce the rules directly from solving the Benben riddle. Rather, these rules emerged from the model of artistic creativity detailed in Science of Art: The Artisan Theory of Mimetic Truth, Meaning, and Beauty. However, observing the process of solving the geometric riddle of Benben and striving to generalize it, a student of Hermeticism could have come to a similar set of rules, albeit described in a different language. The essence of the matter is that these rules can also be deduced from observing how the geometric riddle of Benben can be solved and building a decoding manual based on reflections on the solution.

Once the guidelines for interpreting the temporal tapestry are unearthed from the BenBen enigma, they shed light on how to decrypt it. For instance, applying the Rule of Pattern to the temporal tapestry unveils configurations such as the Duad, Triad, Tetrad, and so forth. The Rule of Identity then animates these structures, converting them into distinct units and paving the way for more sophisticated structures. The geometric representations of Platonic Solids, in turn, can be teased out of these temporal tapestries.

Here is a summary of finding detailed in Science of Art: The Artisan Theory of Mimetic Truth, Meaning, and Beauty:

Drawing from the ancient Sumerian foundations for time measurement – encompassing 12, 24, and 60 – we discern fascinating intersections between temporal tapestries and geometry:

- The Nth row of the temporal tapestry showcases symmetries that correspond with the rotational and reflectional symmetries of regular polygons containing N vertices. The triangle offers a prime example of this exact match.
- A temporal tapestry spanning 12 segments provides the exact triangle count essential for shaping both a tetrahedron and a quadrilateral pyramid.
- When stretched to 24 units, the tapestry yields the precise triangles and squares vital for fashioning an octahedron and cube.
- Extending the tapestry to 60 units presents the necessary pentagons and triangles to craft a dodecahedron and an icosahedron.

Intriguingly, the timewheels sized at 6 and 12 resonate closely with two pairs of Platonic duals. The size-6 timewheel underpins the blueprint for the cube and it’s dual, octahedron. In parallel, the size-12 timewheel orchestrates the creation of the dodecahedron and its counterpart, the icosahedron.

## Space as Crystallized Time: A Foundational Model

The endeavor of identifying geometric patterns within temporal tapestries raises an intriguing question: What does the discovery of Platonic Solids embedded within Temporal Tapestry signify? This observation suggests a profound connection between Time and Geometry, implying that geometry might very well be time in its crystallized form.

At first glance, this notion might appear to challenge our intuitive understanding. Yet, if we deeply reflect upon our sensory experiences, this concept aligns seamlessly. Let’s delve into this perspective:

Consider our cognitive prowess which allows us to perceive and grasp three-dimensional spatial structures from a succession of two-dimensional visual cues. For instance, picture a four-sided pyramid, reminiscent of the Great Pyramid of Giza, standing alone amidst endless sands. A traveler, having never encountered a pyramid before, approaches it. From his vantage point, he discerns only the triangular face presented to him. Driven by curiosity, he circumnavigates the monument, absorbing its triangular faces, edges, and the angles at which they meet. By the end of his expedition, even without seeing the pyramid from an aerial view, his mind, synthesizing the gathered visual cues, reconstructs a holistic three-dimensional representation of the structure.

This elucidates the marvelous way in which the mind processes a linear flow of sensory data, converting it into a holistic proto-space. The mind, by integrating patterns observed within the temporal tapestry -such as triadic patterns- can generate intricate structures, akin to our four-sided pyramid.

In essence, space and all it holds is crystallized Time. Space is not merely a void, but rather an illusion, or “Maya”, skillfully sculpted from the atomic elements of time and the primal patterns they form.

## Blueprint For a Quantum Theory of Spacetime

Modern approaches to understanding the universe’s fabric have transitioned from a continuous view of spacetime to a more granular, discrete perspective. Within this new framework, several innovative theories have emerged, each attempting to describe the quantum nature of spacetime. For instance, the Causal Sets Theory posits that spacetime is composed of discrete events, with causality as its fundamental structure. Concurrently, Causal Dynamical Triangulation (CDT) imagines the universe as a dynamically evolving web of discrete spacetime “triangles.” In a similar vein, Digital Physics proposes that the universe’s foundation is fundamentally computational, suggesting that everything can be described algorithmically as if the universe is operating on a vast, cosmological program.

Our investigation has uncovered a mathematical model where spatial forms are constructed from a temporal tapestry – a one-dimensional structure representing time. The concept that continuous spacetime emerged from a discrete structure is not new, allowing us to easily visualize how geometric forms built from temporal tapestries can grow and solidify into forms of Euclidean geometry. This concept permits the envisagement of the creation of 2D, 3D, and 4D worlds built from temporal tapestry.

Could this model inform the construction of a new physical theory? Under the assumption of Grant’s Hypothesis, this must have been the true intent of the Builders. Let us, therefore, speculate about the characteristics of a physical theory that could be created using our investigation as a blueprint.

This perspective theory would include the Mind as a central entity that constructs Space from Time. It will recognize fractal patterns like Platonic Solids occurring at various scales, from temporal molecules to the shape of the Universe. Furthermore, it will incorporate the Hermetic principle of analogy – as above, so below – affirming the consistency between the macrocosm and the microcosm in this structured universe.

## Deciphering the Foundational Knowledge of the Builders

Our journey began with the compelling alignments identified by researchers investigating the Great Pyramid. One interpretation of these intriguing findings has been provided by Robert Grant. Grant’s Hypothesis suggests that the Great Pyramid, and the associated lineage of initiates, hold concealed knowledge, potentially surpassing our current understanding.

What ensued was an investigative blueprint constructed on the premise of Grant’s Hypothesis being accurate. After delving into Hermetic decoding methodologies, we anchored our focus on two potential reservoirs of Hermetic wisdom: Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 and the Egyptian creation myth. We’ve showcased how a Hermetic Theory of Creation, presenting models of Time and “Space as Crystallized Time”, can be inferred from the myths and narratives linked to the Great Pyramid.

While this article doesn’t encapsulate all the decodings I’ve unearthed, I’m confident that what’s showcased substantiates the merit in further probing Grant’s Hypothesis. What we’ve unveiled might very well be a foundational mathematical framework, from which the intrinsic postulates of the Builders’ physics could be extrapolated.

Admittedly, we are still in the nascent stages of this monumental endeavor. Yet, this exploration provides a roadmap for deciphering Hermetic mysteries. Hermetic decoding involves resolving a cascade of enigmas. Leveraging insights from more accessible secrets as foundational keystones, we’ve been connecting disparate dots to craft a unified theory.

Our ultimate objective is to decode the riddle presented by a physical constant encapsulated within the geometry of a pyramid with a slope of 51.84 degrees, and to elucidate how constants like Planck’s and the fine structure constant can be embedded in such a form. This probe sketches a trajectory towards that ambition.

Each puzzle solved enriches the overarching theory, setting the stage for tackling subsequent riddles. Progressively, the intricacies of these enigmas lessen. Midway through this quest, a more extensive consortium of Hermetic scholars, in partnership with linguists, physicists, and mathematicians, will be essential. I sincerely hope that our endeavors thus far underscore the need for assembling such a collaborative force.
