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 -

Here are some notes that I posted online back in 1999. I am republishing them here because I think that they might be useful. Some of the figures are only approximate, so I will need to rewrite it later.

Part 1

The Sun and Moon appear the same size in the sky. Coincidence!

The Sun spins with a mean rate of 27.275 days.
The Moon spins with a mean rate of 27.32 days.
Coincidence!

The Moon's diameter compared to the Earth is 0.2727 Earth diameters.

Notice how everything is based around 27.32 or 27.27.

PART 2:
The Moon's period of orbit around the Earth is 27.32 days
The Earth's period of orbit around the Sun is 365.256 days. This is the
approximate reciprocal of 27.32 -

So
27.32/365.256 = 0.2735 x 0.2735

The periods of the Earth and Moon are approximate reciprocals of each other.

Again notice the recurrence of 27.32.

PART 3:
From the Earth, the Moon appears to be the same size in the sky as the
Sun. From the Earth, the Moon subtends an angle of 0.5184 degrees, as
does the Sun.

If the Moon is placed touching the Earth (like a snooker ball), then
the angle made between the diameter of the Earth and the centre of the
Moon is 51.84 degrees - coincidence.

In one month, the Moon travels once around the Earth, and in one month
the Earth travels a fraction of it's orbit around the Sun. The angle
moved through by the Earth in 27.27 days is 5.184 x 5.184 degrees - and
this is equivalent to 0.2732 x 0.2732 x the Earth's full orbit around
the Sun.

360 degrees = completion, perfection, unity

5.184 x 5.184 = 360 x 0.2727 x 0.2727

PART 4:
What's more, in 27.27 days, the Earth travels a distance of exactly
6600 x 6600 miles around the Sun.

66 = 51.84 x 1.2727

66 x 66 = 51.84 x 51.84 x Phi (the golden ratio)

PART 5:
From the Earth, the Moon subtends an angle of 0.5184 degrees
- ie it has a diameter of 0.5184 degrees in our sky.

From the Moon, the Earth appears as a disc of diameter 1.897
degrees in the Moon's sky.

In one month the Moon makes one complete revolution of the
Earth - moving through 360 degrees of it's orbit. 360 = 18.97 x 18.97

In one month the Earth moves through 5.184 x 5.184 degrees of
it's orbit.

Observe the resulting pattern -

Earth Size = 1.897 degrees Moon Size = 0.5184 degrees

Earth moves 5.184 x 5.184 degrees Moon Moves 18.97 x 18.97 degrees

Summary :

In one Sun Day of 27.27 days, the Earth moves through a fraction of
it's orbit equivalent to 0.2732 x 0.2732 x the full orbit

- in one Sun Day of 27.27 days, the Earth moves through an arc of 5.184 x 5.184 degrees
(0.5184 degrees defining the size of the Moon from the Earth)

- in one Sun Day of 27.27 days the Earth travels a distance of 6600 x 6600 miles = 5184
x 5184 x 1.2727 x 1.2727
= 5184 x 5184 x phi

Each of these coincidences defines the squared circle of the Moon.

The angle moved through by the Earth can be expressed in RADIANS. One
radian is the arc moved through around a circle when the length of the
arc is equal to the radius of the circle.

The radius of the Earth's orbit around the Sun is 92,957,000 miles. The
length of the arc covered in one Sun Day is 6600 x 6600 miles.

So, in radians this arc is 6600 x 6600/92957000
= 2.16 x 0.216 radians

This is remarkable because 2160 miles is the diameter of the Moon - so
once again the arc moved through by the Earth in one month points
directly to the squared circle of the Moon.

It should not surprise you to discover then, that in one YEAR, the
number of radians moved through by the Earth is 7.92 x 0.792 (7920
miles being the diameter of the Earth)

DISTANCE MOVED BY THE EARTH IN 27.27 days

0.2732 x 0.2732 Earth orbits

5.184 x 5.184 degrees

2.16 x 0.216 radians

5184 x 5184 x phi miles

Each of these numbers defines the squared circle of the Moon

Moon is 0.2732 x Earth diameter

Moon has diameter of 0.5184 degrees from Earth

Moon has diameter of 2160 miles

Just as the Earth orbits the Sun, so the Sun also follows a circular route through the stars.

Over a period of 25920 years, the Sun appears to make a journey through each of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. It moves through at a rate of 1 degree every 72 years - and the time taken to traverse each constellation is 2160 years or 6 x 6 x 60 years. The period of 25920 years is called a Great Year.

The total number of days in a Great Year = 25920 * 365.256 = 9467435.52

Oddly enough 9467435.52 = 12 x 888 x 888, so the time taken to traverse each of the 12 constellations = 888 x 888 days

I find the appearance of the cube of 6 and the square of 888 intriguing.

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?

I do remember to solar eclipse of 1999.

We went to northern France and found a hilltop in the course of the total eclipse.

It was cloudy, so we couldn't watch the eclipse very well (just a little)

But we experienced very well the night that fell, and the dawn coming from the west, and heard cocks crowing.

That you knew "dawn" is something else than sun rising.

Which for me was the "big news".

Hebrew "shachar"= dawn, darkness. "Alot hashachar" = rising up of darkness = dawning.

And strange enough my son, who never looks for stones, etc, picked up this fossil from the place where we stood:

The ark of Noach is said to be a pyramid,

Genesis 6:16,

You shall make a skylight for the ark, and to a cubit you shall finish it to the top

Rashi:

and to a cubit you shall finish it to the top: Its covering slanted upwards until it narrowed at the top to one cubit (Gen. Rabbah 31:11), so that the rain should run down (the following does not appear in certain editions) (from both sides) (Sanh. 108b, Maharsha).

Sizes given in the preceding verse 15:

And this [is the size] you shall make it: three hundred cubits the length of the ark, fifty cubits its breadth, and thirty cubits its height.

300 x 50 cubits, the ground basis of the ark, make six squares of 50 x 50 cubits , which might be seen as the six edges of a cube.

The ark was lifted up by the waters, so you might see the height to be enheightened.

If you reckon after it appears that the top of the ark, where the skylight was, touched the fiftieth cubit above the earth.

Key given by Rashi (on Genesis 8:4),

on the seventeenth day: From here you learn that the ark was submerged in the water eleven cubits, for it is written: (verse 5) “ In the tenth [month], on the first of the month, the mountain peaks appeared.” That is [the month of] Av, which is the tenth month counting from Marcheshvan, when the rains fell, and they were fifteen cubits higher than the mountains. They diminished from the first of Sivan until the first of Av fifteen cubits in sixty days, at the rate of a cubit in four days. The result is that on the sixteenth of Sivan they had diminished only four cubits, and the ark came to rest on the next day. You learn [from here] that it was submerged eleven cubits in the waters [which were] above the mountain peaks. — [from aforementioned source]

The mountains appear to be "only" 15 cubits high, and the waters at highest level were with 15 cubits above the mountains.
(From which you immediately "learn" that the story of the flood in no way has to be taken literal).

Since the ark was submerged 11 cubits it was at highest level with its top 49 cubits above the earth.

At the moment the ark touched the mountains of Ararat the waters were with 26 cubits above the earth.
At that very moment the Name of God found expression as 26 cubits = 15 cubits (of the high mountains) + 11 cubits (of the ark submerged in the waters).

Hebrew "shachar"= dawn, darkness. "Alot hashachar" = rising up of darkness = dawning.

Hebrew "ayelet hashachar", "the hind of the dawn" (= the morningstar = Venus), or just: dawn, daybreak.

Noteworthy is that Venus, from earthly perspective, is ever drawing pentagrams (in time):

Genesis 32:25,

And Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn.

Hebrew:

וַיִּוָּתֵר יַעֲקֹב לְבַדּוֹ וַיֵּאָבֵק אִישׁ עִמּוֹ עַד עֲלוֹת הַשָּׁחַר
"vayiv'uteir Yaakov l'vado vayeiaveik ish immo ad alot hashachar"
LXX has:

ὑπελείφθη δὲ Iακωβ μόνος καὶ ἐπάλαιεν ἄνθρωπος μετ' αὐτοῦ ἕως πρωί

πρωί being a word that occurs more often in NT.

John 20:1,

Τῇ δὲ μιᾷ τῶν σαββάτων Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ ἔρχεται πρωῒ σκοτίας ἔτι οὔσης εἰς τὸ μνημεῖον, καὶ βλέπει τὸν λίθον ἠρμένον ἐκ τοῦ μνημείου.

sylvius

So πρωί = break of dawn

might be the key of the resurrection,

Jesus' death coinciding the break of dawn in the west:

Mark 15:33-34,

Καὶ γενομένης ὥρας ἕκτης σκότος ἐγένετο ἐφ' ὅλην τὴν γῆν ἕως ὥρας ἐνάτης. καὶ τῇ ἐνάτῃ ὥρᾳ ἐβόησεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς φωνῇ μεγάλῃ, Ελωι ελωι λεμα σαβαχθανι; ὅ ἐστιν μεθερμηνευόμενον Ὁ θεός μου ὁ θεός μου, εἰς τί ἐγκατέλιπές με;

And when the sixth hour had come there happened darkness on the whole of the earth until the ninth hour; and on the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a great voice, "Elohi, elohi l'mah sabachtani?" what in translation is: "the God of mine, the God of mine, to what did you abandon me?"

σκότος = darkness
being "foretold" in the so called Olivet Discourse, Mark 13:24-26,

Ἀλλὰ ἐν ἐκείναις ταῖς ἡμέραις μετὰ τὴν θλῖψιν ἐκείνην ὁ ἥλιος σκοτισθήσεται, καὶ ἡ σελήνη οὐ δώσει τὸ φέγγος αὐτῆς, καὶ οἱ ἀστέρες ἔσονται ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ πίπτοντες, καὶ αἱ δυνάμεις αἱ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς σαλευθήσονται. καὶ τότε ὄψονται τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐρχόμενον ἐν νεφέλαις μετὰ δυνάμεως πολλῆς καὶ δόξης.

But in those days after that trouble the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give her light and the stars will be falling from heaven and the powers that are in heaven will be shaken, and then they will see the son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.

Καὶ πρωῒ ἔννυχα λίαν ἀναστὰς ἐξῆλθεν καὶ ἀπῆλθεν εἰς ἔρημον τόπον κἀκεῖ προσηύχετο.

And at dawn long before daylight standing up he went out and went away to a solitary place where he prayed.

A thought dawns on me.

Ain't that great?

Genesis 2:5 says that "nothing had yet grown"

And then, in Genesis 2:6, "a mist went up"

and next, Genesis 2:7, "God formed man".

Genesis 2:5,

וְכֹל שִׂיחַ הַשָּׂדֶה טֶרֶם יִהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ וְכָל עֵשֶׂב הַשָּׂדֶה טֶרֶם יִצְמָח,
"v'chol siach hasadeh terem yiyeh baarets v'chol esev hasadeh terem yitsmach",
"And all the shrub of the field when it was not yet in the earth and all herb of the field when it had not yet grown"

"siach", shrub, can also mean: conversation, talk, meditation, thought.

And it has gematria 318, coinciding th number of Abraham's trained servants with whom he gained victory over the four kings in favor of the five (Genesis 14:14).

"terem", Rashi:

Every טֶרֶם in Scripture has the meaning of “not yet,” and it does not mean“before,” and it cannot be made into a verb form, to say הִטְרִים, as one says הִקְדִּים

LXX has:
καὶ πᾶν χλωρὸν ἀγροῦ πρὸ τοῦ γενέσθαι ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ πάντα χόρτον ἀγροῦ πρὸ τοῦ ἀνατεῖλαι

χλωρὸς ("chloros") = green (plant).

Green, the middle color of the rainbow
http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ3c6Ls6CX99omV9tHsgyxKszoR-4Mmir3Ls_Lg3LqUYIzYRXLM

See:

πρὸ translates "terem", sems to be thr root of πρωΐ.

Next verse Genesis 2:6,
וְאֵד יַעֲלֶה מִן הָאָרֶץ, "v'ed yaaleh min haarets", "and a mist went up from the earth"

"ed", אֵד

, "alef -dalet" = "1-4"

LXX has,
πηγὴ δὲ ἀνέβαινεν ἐκ τῆς γῆς

πηγὴ = fountain, spring.

to be found also in Revelation 21:6,
. ἐγὼ τῷ διψῶντι δώσω ἐκ τῆς πηγῆς τοῦ ὕδατος τῆς ζωῆς δωρεάν.

And then the next verse Genesis 2:7,

"And Hashem God formed man",
Rashi:

formed: [וַיִּיצֶר, with two “yuds,” hints at] two creations, a creation for this world and a creation for the [time of the] resurrection of the dead, but in connection with the animals, which do not stand in judgment, two“yuds” are not written in [the word וַיִּצֶר describing their creation. — [from Tan. Tazria 1]

And noteworthy:

Genesis 2:5 is about the third day:

Rashi:

neither did any herb of the field yet grow: [I.e.,] had not yet grown. And on the third [day], where it is written: “Let the earth bring forth,” they [the plants] had not yet emerged, but they stood at the entrance of the ground until the sixth day.
