Geometric Basics of the Seal of Atlantis

* A
Star Amid Pyramids*

At about 4:1 magnification, the center of Cinderella engraving lends

itself to explorations with a pencil, ruler, and compasses much better

than at lifesize. Yet, even at 4:1 magnification, the design still
shows

great precision. This suggests that rather than human senses alone,

the original work must have relied on optical, and other precision

instruments. What is systematic about the design below?

First of all, the design works within the same frame of reference,

we use throughout. This refers not only to the X,Y axes, but also

to the Square, which delineates them.

*Derivation of the design*

Line-1

The line-1 seems quite irregular.
But, because it is bent like a bow,

we can subtend it by a straight line (a regular geometric shape).

It is worth noting that the line-1 with its appendage is subtended

by the X-axis.

Line-2

Line-2 is relatively straight. I was able to follow the contour
along

its right-hand edge with a straight line for the most part. The straight

line returns to the edge for the exit. It is supported by some other

points, as it passes along.

Anyhow, this is how I first drew the design - just by using a ruler,

without any knowledge of the angles produced. Since the design

works wonderfully, I must have done something right. I remember

trying to follow my own rules conscienciously.

The catch is that both lines 1 & 2 hold the
same 30 degree angle with

the X-axis, and 120 degrees with each other.

Line-3

Like line-1, line-3 has a straight line, which subtends it. Let's note,

how this subtending line wedges against the appendage of line-1.

Line-4

Line-4 is created by the same method, as line-2. It also finds
much

support as it passes through the rest of the image.

The Rise of the Pyrostar

Lines 3 & 4 together with the Y-axis create a triangle, which could

be a part of a regular five-pointed star by holding 36 degrees with

the Y-axis. So, I added the rest of the star (the s.c. Pyrostar)
by a

construction, which also used the only circle visible in the diagram.

*

Low and behold, now the X-axis divides the vertical part of the ori-

ginal triangle into PHI - the famous Golden Section!

The System

Line -1 has a perpendicular line drawn to it from
the point, at which

it intersects the Y-axis. That line heads for
the intersection on the

green circle, where it also meets line-2, and
one of the central axes

of the Pyrostar.
The intersection itself is impressive, because it
joins

four lines, yet, it is very precise - a virtual
point.

Due to this systematic element, we can add the
design to what we have

already, i.e., the rest of the Seal of Atlantis.
Moreover, we can do so at

the correct scale, having noticed that one of
the sides of the Pyrostar's

pentagon extends right through the right-hand
corner of the so called

Square.

There is only one way of enjoying this image - understanding it..

Conclusion

People familiar with the theory of probability
realize that the above is but

one of many parts of the overall system, which
would go totally out of

order, if either axis shifted even a little.
On the basic level, the above is

yet another proof of the imaginary axial system,
and its 0.0 centerpoint.

On a higher level, the Pyrostar design fits in
with, and is an extension

of the basic construction of a regular five-pointed
star within our familiar

Square.

The Pyrostar also proves
yet another time (I've lost the count)

that the creators
of the engraving knew the correct construction

of the regular five-pointed
star. It is as if they had known that

this fact cannot
ever be proven enough times. Sadly, the non-

reaction of the worldto
this discovery documents their foresight .
