My new print & ebook
shows that modern alphabets are based on ancient alphabets rooted in syllabic scripts of the ancient world (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus)

Ancient Geodetic LexiLine? Logo Earth Measurement
LexiLine - A Renaissance in Learning

It has been many years since I first wrote this page,
and it has become difficult because of DNA genetic evidence
to support this analysis worldwide
unless one would argue that Haplogroup X
is a remnant of ancient but fairly "recent" seafaring
conducted for purposes of a survey of the Earth.

Hence, one must thus regard this page as being extremely speculative.
That an ancient land survey of Europe and Africa was made is without doubt,
but whether the Atlantic was actually crossed for survey purposes
can easily be disputed, since it can not be proven at this time.
The same is true for a crossing via Alaska.

It is of course proven by numerous means
that migration from the Old World to the New World
occurred in prehistoric times,
but the number of migrations
and the period of their occurrence
is not clear.

So this remains, for the moment, just a fun idea.

The Ancient Geodetic Measurement
of the Earth and Heavens
Jason and the Argonauts
As noted by Paul Dunbavin in Picts and Ancient Britons,
"the Pictish Chronicle ... would seem to attest

to the use of stones to mark pagan ... territories"


It was more likely 3117 BC than 2340 BC - as we thought when this graphic was made.
The center of the system of measurement in the Mediterranean
was at Knossos ("the Knot", today Iraklion viz. Heraklion) on the island of Crete,
with the major corners at Silbury Hill, Gibraltar, Ur and Mecca (Jiddah)

Ancient application of Euclidean geometry to non-Euclidean sphered surfaces
is shown at the page on the Phaistos Disk. A special 72-degree geodetic version
of the pentagon was used for the triangulation.

Based on these reference points, the ancient sea-going megalithic peoples
then measured the earth by parallelograms, each in width equivalent
to ca. 5° of current longitude (72 x 5 degrees for 360 degrees).

Many megalithic sites in Europe and similar ancients sites around the world
(e.g. the gigantic circle carved in solid rock and found recently near Miami, Florida)
are remnants of this ancient gigantic surveying project to measure
earth and heaven, memory of which survives as the tale of Jason and the Argonauts

The  main ancient West longitude ran from Salisbury Plain through
Carnac (geodetic) in current France (midway between Brest and Nantes)
and from thence straight on to
Santander (near the Cave of Altamira) and
straight through to
Punta de Terifa (Land´s End at Gibraltar, near Algeciras).

This  triangulation was carried on also to the East and West,
as shown in the figure below.


The leg of the triangle from Knossos to Mecca ran through the Rosetta Stone
and northward from Knossos through Mycenae onward to
Salisbury and New Grange,
continuing on to the pyramids at Teotihuacan, further triangulated northward

to near the current city of Miami,
where a geodetic wheel was in fact recently found,
thence to Memphis (perhaps the Kings Mound) and then perhaps again to Cahokia, St.Louis.
Southward, there are geodetic triangles with the Yucatan peninsula and from there on to
Nazca. Full and updated details of the Geodetic world measurement are found at

As related in detail by Peter Tompkins,
Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Galahad Books, New York, 1971,
which contains a long and brilliant geodetic appendix by Livio Catulio Stecchini,
there is no doubt that many of the ancient monuments of Earth were geodetically significant,
especially Egypt - which called itself
To-Mera "the land of the mr triangulation", a line of
interpretation first followed by the Egyptologist Karl H. Brugsch (Tompkins, p. 292).
In Indo-European on the example of Latvian,

to mera would mean "that which measures, or is measured.

Tompkins writes further about the role of Mekka (Mecca), p. 184:
The Moslem shrine of Mecca is 10 degrees east of the western meridian of Egypt
and 10 degrees south of Behdet.
According to Stecchini the sacred black stone of the Kaaba

was originally part of a set of four,
placed in what he calls a pyramidical triangle
from which the trigonometric functions of the shrine could be derived. Tompkins writes:

"Islamic tradition stresses the point that the Kaaba was originally a geodetic center.
The essential element of the Kaaba consisted of four stones marking a square with diagonals
running north-south and east-west. The diagonal north-south with the northeast and southeast
sides formed what the Egyptians call a pyramid. The angle formed by the diagonal with the southeast
side was 36 degrees, from which Stecchini concludes that the trigonometric functions of the shrine
were measured along the northeast side."

The Rosetta Stone was originally surely one of these black geodetic stones
and the "ten shrines" discussed on the Rosetta Stone - in our opinion - also related to the
geodetic and heavenly division of the 360 degree circle into ten ca. 36 degree sections. The Rosetta Stone has not been properly translated by the Egyptologists, but we are working on this.
As Nazca
shows us, these sections would also not all be equal in size.
