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