Since there seem to be a rash of paranormal type postings here of late, here is my favourite such topic: Coral Castle in Florida. Has anyone here ever been? I never have, but I'd like to visit sometime. Here are some quick links:

http://www.coralcastle.com/

http://www.roadsideamerica.com/attract/FLHOMcoral.html

http://paranormal.about.com/library/weekly/aa071999.htm

http://www.parascope.com/en/articles/coralCastle.htm

http://www3.sympatico.ca/slavek.krepelka/ttf2/fields6.htm

And a quick excerpt from one of these pages:

"Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, is one of the most amazing structures ever built. In terms of accomplishment, it's been compared to Stonehenge, ancient Greek temples, and even the great pyramids of Egypt. It is amazing - some even say miraculous - because it was quarried, fashioned, transported, and constructed by one man: Edward Leedskalnin, a 5-ft. tall, 100-lb. Latvian immigrant.

Many men have single-handedly built their own homes, but Leedskalnin's choice of building materials is what makes his undertaking so incredible. He used huge blocks of coral rock, some weighing as much as 30 tons, and somehow was able to move them and set them in place without assistance or the use of modern machinery. And therein lies the mystery. How did he do it?"

Coincidentally, some of the discussion about Coral Castle and how it was built is not entirely unconnected with some of the explanations of "free energy" in another thread in this forum. In both cases, some explanations rely on angles, magnets, and lines of force. Unlike "free energy", though, there can be no debate that Coral Castle exists and is there for all to see.

I lived in Miami for quite awhile and visited the Castle twice. It's pretty weird. Seeing the large stones move so easily is pretty bizarre. How and why it all works and how was exactly built... who knows? but it is fascinating to wonder about.

Yes I've seen the wonder itself. When he built this, it's been suggested he did so as a "testament" to his fiance who cancelled their marriage. I think she got the cold feet just a day before the wedding.

What I saw, was NOT a testament to his "Sweet 16" as he called her. It was the work of a man who kept himself busy to avoid loosing his mind. We know he was that heart broken over the cancelled wedding. Maybe he did loose his mind and thus the work he created over 20 years. It felt sad to me.

There is a door that weights TONS and can be pushed open with one finger. The assembly of stones weighing tons when this frail man could hardly work with a shovel, is extraordinary! Anyone else, given the task, would find this absolutely impossible.

If I didn't know a single man had been behind this, I would of immediately assumed modern marvel heavy machinery had put it all in place.

I also would love to see his reaction if he learned people pay $7 or $8 to view the place when he was giving tours for a dime.

Fascinating place.

From http://www.coralcastle.com/home.asp "rock star Billy Idol wrote his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" about Ed's lost love".

I've read that some people have since suggested that Ed's lost romance wasn't as serious as he claimed, and that he pretty much exaggerated and built up the story in order to divert questioning about his true motives.

Here are another couple of links about the castle and Ed:

Alterior motives would be enough to send chills up my spine. His having claimed to have “re-discovered the laws of weight, measurement, and leverage.” peaked my interest.

Did you read in that second link you provided that after he died, above his bed were the words:


“THE SECRET TO THE UNIVERSE IS 7129 / 6105195.”

Ed was in the know like no other. I've read Magnetic Current he wrote and like many others was perplexed. The proof of his knowledge though is in the pudding, or in this case, the Castle.

And it doesn't appear to get more concrete than that example.


I just found the page I had been jogging my memory for. Regarding the formula, this site sure had commentary:

http://zelator.topcities.com/Leedskalnin.htm




Now, back to Leedskalnin's secret of the universe which, according to Jim's friend, was encoded on a plaque at the Coral Castle. The formula was: 7129 / 6105195

Now, of course we don't know exactly what that means. It looks like a division formula but as such it doesn't yield anything of any particular interest, at least as far as we can tell. When I say "we", I'm speaking of Michael Morton and Joe T. These are two number crunchers I've mentioned in previous CodeZone articles. (Book plug! Joe has a new book out! The title: A Glimmer of Light From the Eye of a Giant: Tabular Evidence of a Monument in Harmony with the Universe. Email Joe at josepht@tri-county.main.nc.us for information on how to order.) But all three of us were curious about Leedskalnin's numbers and Joe was the first to come up with something. How significant it is, we don't know but, like so many things out here in the Code Zone, it was interesting and yielded some curious synchronicities.

About a week or so prior to getting Jim's email about Leedskalnin's secret, we'd been involved in some other work having to do with Imperial measures. For my part, I was working on the alphanumerics of various measuring units by name. I happened to notice, among other things, the alphanumeric value of the word "FOOT" is 56. Here's what I found:

FOOT=56
A foot is 12 inches...
56/12= 4.666666667
Now, it just so happens that the alphanumeric value of the word "NINE" is 42 and if 42 is divided by 9 the quotient is the same as 56/12.
42/9= 4.666666667

It's important to recall, as I've explained in detail in previous CodeZone articles, that the number "9" is a major key factor in the work I do and it appears to have been a key factor in the knowledge of the ancients as well. It's also important to recall Michael Morton's observation that it's the "self referencing" aspect of all this "code" stuff which is intriguing. The remarkable amount of synchronistic self-referencing is, according to Morton's thinking, a function of what he calls the "unified field matrix". In other words, the fractal nature of the "code" in terms of the "bigger picture" as Peter Gersten would call it.

Jumping ahead now to the Leedskalnin numbers, Joe wrote:

((The first thought I had when I saw it (the Leedskalnin formula) was " maybe it's a product /sum ratio"

-- I bump into them quiet often ! -- 7129 is a Prime number -- I played around with the 1st idea for awhile and wasn't getting anywhere. -- Then I got the idea to take the product of the digits in the 1st number and divide it by the sum of the digits in the 2nd number --- Bam !! -- 126/27 = 4.66666... -- Gary's ANV (Alpha-Numeric Value) of "NINE" (which is 42), divided by "9" . ))

At this point let me direct your attention to the photo of Ed Leedskalnin. Notice the plaque he is holding. It shows his first name and the initial of his last name. A rather odd thing to be holding for a nice portrait shot. But then Leedskalnin was an odd man. Was he giving us another clue? Was there something encoded in these letters? I noticed the inscription "ED.L." could be translated into the alphanumeric equivalent of 54.12. (in other words, E=5, D=4, L=12). I noticed that 54-12 = 42, the same as the alphanumeric value of "FIVE" and of "NINE".
5x9=45, the mirror of 54!

I also noticed 54+12=66.
If we add the 42 plus the 66 we get 108 which just happens to be the alphanumeric value of the phrase "ENGLISH INCH". There's a self-reference to the idea of the Imperial unit of measure.

Also,
108-54 = 54, self referencing the 108 back to the number we started with. Also, 54 is the alphanumeric value of TONE, the significance of which we will see later on in this article.

Continuing on with the rest of Joe's findings now, he wrote:

((Then multiply 7129 x 4.66666... next get the cube root - you should have 32.16215434.))

Joe noted that this 32.16215... is a very close approximation of the gravitational constant of g=32.1652. Joe notes, further:

((Since it's really not a constant ( it varies slightly about the Earth's surface), this then is a pretty good value.))

So now we have possible references to two elements which may be key factors in Leedskalnin's secret: (1) units of measure and (2) gravity. This would have some correspondence to Leedskalnin's rather simplistic statement that he understood the laws of weight and leverage. So far the units of measure we have worked with have been the INCH and the FOOT. We have not yet experimented with measures of weight. I did notice, however, this interesting synch:

ENGLISH POUND=144

144 not only reduces to 9 by the convention of "cross adding" (1+4+4=9) but the number 144 is a major gematrian number and figures prominently into my own work with the gematria of the English alphabet. For example, NINE IS THE KEY=144.

Also, as I noted in CodeZone No.21:
FOUR=60
FIVE=42
NINE=42
Now add those ANVs and what do we get?
60+42+42 = 144

And back to Leedskalnin's number 7129, if we multiply those digits we get:
7x1x2x9 = 126
Synchronistically, the alphanumeric value of ONE TWO SIX is 144.

The ANV of the phrase ENGLISH OUNCE = 132
If we subtract ENGLISH OUNCE (132) from ENGLISH POUND (144) we get:
144-132 = 12, the same as the ANV of the letter "L" in the inscription "ED.L."

Also, in the inscription "ED.L.", the Alpha-Numeric Value of ED is 54.
144-54 = 90, the same as the sum of the ANVs of INCH and FOOT:
INCH=34
FOOT=56
34+56=90

What might we speculate as a result of these numerical synchronicities? We've seen Leedskalnin's numbers led Joe to find the approximation of what is known as the gravitational constant. We've seen that Leedskalnin's numbers led to the number 4.66666 which correlated with the alphanumeric value of NINE when that value (42) is divided by the number "9". We've seen how Leedskalnin's numbers seem to correlate synchronistically with key gematrian numbers which, in turn, are related to the value of 9. Most of the work so far has been with the first portion of Leedskalnin's formula (7129/6105195). We could note here, in closing, that the sum of the digits in second portion of that formula is 27 which also reduces to 9 by cross-adding (2+7=9). We might also note here that 27 is encoded within the structure of the English alphabet when each of the letters from opposite ends of the alphabet are paired. For example, A+Z=27, B+Y=27, C+X=27, and so on. Given this, it is interesting to note that there are a total of 13 pairs in that set of 2-letter combinations. Then 13 x 27 = 351. Recalling that the numbers 4, 5, and 9 are key to this work (as well as the alpha-number versions, FOUR, FIVE, NINE), we can see a possible connection to Richard Hoagland's hyperdimensional figure of 19.5 as shown here:

19.5 x 4 = 78
19.5 x 5 = 97.5
19.5 x 9 = 175.5

The sum of those products is 351, the same as the product of 13 x 27.

Also, regarding the number 27...
Leedskalnin's number 6105195 sums to 27, the harmonic of...
270 = EAST+WEST+NORTH+SOUTH

Maybe Leedskalnin's secret had something to do with directional alignments, ley line energies, gravitational forces and time? If we take the above mentioned sum of 27 and reverse it we get...
72 = MAGNETIC

Now, recall from a few paragraphs back, that 54 (the alphanumeric equivalent of E and D) is the alphanumeric value of the word "TONE".
Joe noted...
7x1x2x9=126 And I noticed this...
126 = MAGNETIC TONE

This idea of "tone" or "sound" in conjunction with "stone" fits nicely with the number 144 mentioned previously:
CIRCLE OF TONES = 144
CIRCLE OF SOUND = 144
CIRCLE OF STONE = 144

And we'll wrap it up by noting that 351 is the mirror of 153 which is also a key gematrian number (a number which turns up in the Bible in a couple of places such as the 153 fish mentioned in John 21:11). We've noted in previous CodeZone articles that the idea of reversing numbers seems to be an element of the "code". When we reverse the 351 to 153 and add them together we get this:

351 + 153 = 504

If we drop the zero, we find the numbers 5 and 4, the values of E and D in the inscription ED.L. as seen in his photograph. But, even more significant, perhaps, is this:

NINE IS THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING CONSCIOUSNESS = 504.

Then, speaking of reversing numbers...
REVERSE THE NUMBERS = 217

This looked familiar. Where had I seen it? Ah! It's the reverse of the 712 in the Leedskalnin number 7129! So it occurred to me to see what the difference was between the numbers 7129 and its reverse of 2179... Guess what?
7129 - 2179 = 4950
Drop the zero and here, again, we see the numbers 4, 9, and 5.

What did Leedskalnin know that we have yet to figure out? Did his secret have to do with consciousness? With frequency? With linear measures? With weight measures? With gravity? With all of the above in a specific combination? Did he know how to manipulate what Michael Morton calls the unified field matrix? Did he leave us clues as to what he knew? It's all still a mystery and the answer is waiting... somewhere out there...

Oh you are not alone my friend! He left us all scratching our heads. I only quoted one who appeared to shed some light while the rest of us remain in the dark Smile

And the above number crunching almost sounds like a desperate search for meaning which can be found anytime anywhere if you multiply and divide enough! And some of it looks really concrete and plausible.

I'm just dying to find out how he managed to understand and let natural forces work for him and not against. Whatever it was, compared to his approach, we've been interacting with our world in a most retarded manner.

I'm guessing he had a relationship with transgendered alien beings from another dimension that traded him secrets of the universe for some good citrus fruit and rum.

Everyone keeps saying that it is the Earth's magnetic force manipulated in one specific spot where gravity is weakened. didn't he move the location once having to move all the coral? Or does the Magnetic field streatch over several hundred miles?

I've always wanted to goto the Castle ... real magic there!

As for how he built it, it is not as paranormal as people want you to believe. From what I've discovered, he etched the rocks with a hammer/chisel where he wanted them to be cut ... hot metal ... cold water ... breaks the entire thing, just like cutting glass. (I hope I'm not giving away a "secret" there?)

As to moving them, no idea on that ... the entire castle was actually moved a few miles I believe. The story is he had someone park a truck in the morning ... they would return at night and he had the stone loaded all by himself.

His theory on magents/electricity facinate me the most ... he believes electricity is really magentic current:

Quote:
"The positive electricity is composed of streams of north pole individual magnets, and negative electricity is composed of streams of south pole individual magnets"


Might sound far fetched ... but ... static electricity does make balloons stick to the wall, just like magnets stick together ... and people hit by lightening are thrown back, much like the way magnets repel each other. Based on his achomplishments, I wouldn't dismiss any of his theorys:

http://www.labyrinthina.com/ed.htm



All the anti-gravity para-normal theories come from people other than Ed ... which is why I give them no merit what-so-ever. Ed claimed he figured out the secrets used to build the pyramids, the secrets of weight and leverage. I'm sure there is a very simple explanation, I just wished he hadn't taken it to the grave.
