There are two great lights in our sky - the Sun and the Moon. For thousands of years, observers have remarked how coincidental it is that both appear to be the same size when viewed from the earth - a fact that is particularly visible during a solar eclipse.

Have you ever wondered if there is anything more to this "coincidence"? Have you ever wondered WHY the Sun and Moon should fit together perfectly - like a key fitting in a lock?

In the short article that follows, I explore other intriguing "coincidences" between the Sun and Moon, and conclude that they were perhaps made so as a sign for us - a sign with a particular message. Sometimes, signs and messages are only visible from a particular viewing point (in this case - from the Earth)

Part 1 - Squaring the Circle

The ratio of the circumference of a circle to the perimeter of a square surrounding it is given by the formula -

4/pi = 1.2727 (pi = 22/7)

4/pi = 1.2732 (pi = 3.14159)

Put another way, if you draw a square with a side length of 2 units, then the centre of the square is 1 unit from any side. If you wanted to draw a circle that had an equal perimeter to the square, then -

(Perimeter of Square) 8 = 2 x pi x radius of circle

Radius of Circle = 8 /2 Pi = 4 / Pi = 1.2727

When you draw a circle with the same perimeter as a square, this is called "squaring the circle".

Part 2 - Patterns in the Sun and Moon

702

RELATIVE SIZE : (Moon diameter = 2160 miles, Earth diameter = 7920 miles, Sun diameter = 864,000 miles))

The diameter of the Moon relative to the diameter of the earth = 0.2727, so the Moon and Earth are in a squared circle relationship. (1 : 0.2727)

The diameter of the Sun relative to the diameter of the Earth = 4 x 27.27

ANGULAR SIZE :

From the Earth, the Sun appears to be the same size as the Moon because the Moon subtends an angle of 0.5184 degrees, and the Sun subtends approximately the same angle - that's why they appear the same size. We can express 0.5184 degrees as a fraction of a whole circle of 360 degrees -

(0.5184 x 0.5184) / 360 = 0.02732 x 0.02732

Here again we find the squared circle ratio appearing

SPIN :

The Spin defines the length of an Earth Day, Moon Day and Sun Day.

The Moon spins on it’s axis once every 27.32 days, and the Earth spins on it’s axis every 1 day (1 : 27.32)

The Sun spins on it’s axis once every 27.275 days.

So both Sun and Moon are in a squared circle relationship to the Earth

ORBIT PERIOD :

The Moon travels around the Earth in 27.32 days.

The Earth travels around the Sun.

In one Sun Day (27.275 days) the Earth travels 0.2732 x 0.2732 x 1 orbit

In one Sun Day, the Earth travels through an arc of 5.184 x 5.184 degrees of it's orbit

So the Sun and Moon are in a squared circle relationship to the Earth.

Part 3 - What Does This Mean ?

In ancient times, the squared circle was thought of as symbolizing the union of what is finite (square) with what is infinite (circle) - the union of heaven and earth, of mind and matter. That's why it seems so appropriate that the squared circle pattern should occur at the place where mind incarnates in matter, making it living matter - the living Earth.

So it means that the Earth is the place of union of matter and spirit, where the infinite meets the finite - where the circle, with its infinite number of angles unites with the square with it's finite 4.

The union of matter and spirit - biological life. Perhaps it also means that the Earth is a Tabernacle for the Spirit - a kind of Temple.

So, perhaps the Sun and Moon were Signs set in the sky with a message for us. They seem to say that here on Earth is the place where the infinite meets the finite - in other words where Spirit dwells in matter. The fact that this message is built into the structure of our solar system suggests that the creator of the message is also the Creator of the Solar System, and the Creator of Life.

Life and the Golden Ratio

There is a ratio that is very common in the structure and pattern of living things. I refer to the Golden Ratio. It is so prevalent, that one might think of it as a mathematical characteristic of life.

If we take the radius of the Earth as 1, then the radius of the Moon is 0.2727.

1.2727 is the square root of Phi

In the diagram below, a triangle is drawn upon the diameter of the earth. If the radius of the Earth is taken as 1, then the line joining the centre of the earth to the centre of the Moon has a length of 1.2727, and the sloping side of the triangle has a length of Phi (as calculated using Pythagoras's Theorem).

Also note that the angle of the slope is 51.84 degrees.

So the Earth and Moon are part of a Golden Ratio relationship. This might be taken as a sign for us saying "Here on earth is life".

The Golden Ratio divides a line in such a way that the ratio of the smalller part to the larger part = the ratio of the larger part to the whole. So the larger is reflected in the smaller

The occurrence of the Golden Ratio suggests that there is a unity between the heavens and the Earth - the larger is reflected in the smaller.

Miscellaneous Notes :

(0.5184 x 0.5184)/ 360 = 8.64 x 8.64 x 10 ^ -5 exactly

so it folllows that

864 x 864 is a close approximation to 273.2 x 2732

864 as a number has some interesting gematrical associations -> 864 = "Jerusalem" - the City of God - is one of them. The City of God being the place where God dwells.

864 + 864 = the volume of the New Jerusalem = 12 x 12 x 12, the New Heavens and New Earth of Revelations.

The Golden Ratio is prevalent even at the level of DNA -
