CryptoNumerology & The Apotheosis: Adding Another Layer To Dan Brown's Latest Mystery
By Gary Val Tenuta, author of The Ezekiel Code
Two books have been released this year, each focusing on the esoteric underpinnings of the foundation of the Unites States of America and the symbolism related to these underpinnings that are scattered all over Washington D.C. and most notably in the U.S. Capitol building itself. The books are Dan Brown's novel, The Lost Symbol, and William Henry's non-fiction work,Freedom's Gate: The Lost Symbols in the U.S. Capitol. Both of these authors focus heavily on a painting called The Apotheosis that adorns the top of the interior of the Capitol's great dome.
In this paper we are going to apply what I call CryptoNumerology (basically a system of gematria based on the English alphabet www.secretofnine.com) to the concepts inherent in the notion of the apotheosis as it pertains to the Capitol Dome.
CryptoNumerology, a form of English-based gematria, uses the simple serial code of A=1 through Z=26. A working hypothesis underlying this divination system is that the number 9 is a key element in the nature of our reality, may in some manner be connected to the phenomenon of synchronicity, and is intrinsically woven into the holographic fabric of the interdimensional Mulitverse.
NINE IS THE KEY = 144 = THE SECRET KEY = MULTIVERSE
1+4+4 = 9
Painted by Brumidi in 1865, the extraordinary artwork called The Apotheosis is located in the eye of the Rotunda, the top of the great dome of the U.S. Capitol. The word "apotheosis" refers to a kind of ascension process, the elevation of a person to the status of a god. The painting covers an area of 4,664 square feet. It is 180 feet above the floor.
4664 = 18 = 9
180 = 9
Some interesting facts: 180 feet is equal to 55 meters. HEAVEN=55. The exterior dome ascends to 288 feet including the height of the Statue of Freedom which sits atop the dome. 288 feet is equal to 88 meters. GATE+HEAVEN = 88. (More on 88, below) The number 288 is called by some the "double light" number because it is 2 x 144 and the number 144 is esoterically associated with the concept of "Light". Is it mere "coincidence" that these numbers correspond to words and phrases that, in turn, correspond to the whole idea of apotheosis?
There are 72 stars in the ring surrounding the painting.
There are 5 concentric rings surrounding the ring of 72 stars. Each of those five rings contains 36 squares. Each of those squares contains 8 small "dots" in a hexagonal pattern.
HEXAGON = 74 = JESUS
HEXAGRAM = 77 = CHRIST
36 x 5 = 180, the same as the height (in feet) of the painting from the floor of the Rotunda.
180 + 72 = 252 = CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS = CONSCIOUSNESS OF LIGHT = JESUS CHRIST SUN OF GOD = ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE OF MALE AND FEMALE
Is it possible that the 5 concentric rings may represent the orbits of the planets with the sun at the center as envisioned by Copernicus? At the time of Copernicus there were only 5 planets known to exist. Below is a photo of the interior of the U.S. Capitol dome (upper image) and the Roman Pantheon (lower image) with the Copernicus planetary system superimposed upon it. This idea of the Copernicus connection was proposed by Hollywood film editor, Walter Murch (http://bldgblog.blogspot.com/2007/04/heliocentric-pantheon-intervie...).
There are 36 windows encompassing the entire dome of the U.S. Capitol. Using CryptoNumerology we find the English gematria value of the word "window" (88) corresponds to quite a list of other words and phrases with the same value, each of which can be seen to have a relationship to the concepts implied by the apotheosis along with elements related to Christianity:
WINDOW = 88 =
IMMANUEL (Meaning "god with us")
IESOUS (Greek spelling for "JESUS")
I AM THE LIFE (Jesus said)
FISH MAIDEN (Possible reference to Mary Magdalene via the Christian symbol of the fish.)
SACRED BRIDE (Possible reference to Mary Magdalene as the bride of Jesus Christ.)
PURPLE (A color associated with royalty)
BLUE BLOOD (A term referring to royalty)
LIFE LIGHT (Possible reference to the 36 windows through which the light enters the dome?)
MITHRAS (Another "god-man" with attributes similar to those associated with Jesus Christ)
THE SONG (Possible reference to the "Music of the Spheres", and idea related to the orbits of the planets?)
SALAMANDER (mystical, alchemical symbol of the marriage of fire and air)
BIRTH CANAL (Possible association with concept of rebirth of Man or transformation from Man to GodMan? GOD+MAN = 54 = SUN = BREATH = VOICE = TONE)
EIGHTY EIGHT IS A CODE NUMBER = 252 = CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS = CONSCIOUSNESS OF LIGHT = JESUS CHRIST SUN OF GOD = ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE OF MALE AND FEMALE
JESUS CHRIST SUN OF GOD IS THE LIGHT = 369 = CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE LIGHT = DEOXYRIBOSE NUCLEIC ACID CODE IS THE LIGHT (Note: Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid is the scientific nomenclature for which DNA is the common acronym.)
DOUBLE EIGHT = 108 = THE LAMB OF GOD = GEOMETRY
THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB OF GOD = 198 = THE RESURRECTION = THE WINDOW OF LIGHT
As mentioned before, there are 36 windows in the dome.
WINDOW = 88
Multiply 88(window) by 36 = 3168
The city of Bethlehem (birthplace of Jesus) rests on the latitude of 31.68 deg. N. The phrase "Kurios Iesous Xristos" is Greek for "Lord Jesus Christ". The Greek gematria value of "Kurios Iesous Xristos" is 3168.
The Washington Monument is 555 feet tall.
FIVE = 42
Substituting the 5s in 555 with the gematria value of the word "Five" we find this:
42+42+42 = 126
ONE TWO SIX = 144 = NINE IS THE KEY = THE SECRET KEY
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA = 261 = THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST TWO SIX ONE = 144 = NINE IS THE KEY = THE SECRET KEY
William Henry says: "The octagonal arcade of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem is a perfect fit when superimposed over the Apotheosis."
THE DOME OF THE ROCK = 171 =
NINE IS THE CODE KEY
CHRIST IS THE GATE
THE LIVING ALPHABET
TEMPLE OF THE BODY
THE ENCODED PROGRAM
CENTER OF THE EARTH
FALLEN LIGHT SPARK
THE DNA OF THE ALPHABET
THE ALPHABET NUMBER
PHI IS THE SACRED CODE
THE HEAVEN WITHIN
THE SOLAR NUMBER
ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY ONE = 252 = CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS = CONSCIOUSNESS OF LIGHT = JESUS CHRIST SUN OF GOD = THE NEW JERUSALEM NUMBER = ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE OF MALE AND FEMALE
THE DOME OF THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL = 324 = ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE OF THE EAST AND WEST
THE DOME OF THE ROCK = 171 324 + 171 = 495 = DNA IS AN INFORMATION SYSTEM CREATED BY INTELLIGENCE
FOUR NINE FIVE ARE THE ALCHEMICAL NUMBERS = 360 = THE ALCHEMICAL NUMBERS ARE ONE TWO SIX = THE ALCHEMICAL RESURRECTION OF JESUS = THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL = CONSCIOUSNESS TRANSMUTATION = THE THREE LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY ONE = 252 = ONE HUNDRED FORTY FOUR = CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS = CONSCIOUSNESS OF LIGHT = JESUS CHRIST SUN OF GOD = THE NEW JERUSALEM NUMBER = ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE OF MALE AND FEMALE
THE WASHINGTON TEMPLE = 234 = THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA = 261 = THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST
TWO SIX ONE = 144 = NINE IS THE KEY = THE SECRET KEY
The number 144 is esoterically associated with the concept of "Light". The Great Pyramid was originally covered with 144,000 sheets of highly polished limestone thus causing the light of the sun to reflect off the pyramid which, in turn, made it shine like a light that could be seen for miles across the desert.
The majority of the gematria values shown above are all multiples of 9 and can be reduced to the single digit of 9 by calculating the sum of the individual digits in the larger number:
NINE IS THE KEY = 144 = THE SECRET KEY = THE GATE IS OPEN
THE TIME PORTAL = 162 = THE LIGHT WITHIN = THE LIGHT NUMBER = THE GATE IS SHUT
ONE SIX TWO = 144
Mythologist William Henry (http://www.williamhenry.net) believes the ring of 72 stars surrounding the painting of The Apotheosis is, or represents, what he calls a "stargate". Dan Brown, in his novel, The Lost Symbol, uses the term "portal", part of the Ancient Mysteries, known only to an initiated few and protected over the ages by the Free Masons. CryptoNumerology reveals the word "gate". As previously mentioned, the word "apotheosis" refers to a kind of ascension process, the elevation of a person to the status of a god. Is the dome of the U.S. Capitol, indeed, some sort of an opening into another dimension of being? And if so, is it only a symbolic representation or is it the real thing?
