Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization
The Unfolding of History Through the Mystery of NumberBook - 2007
"The ubiquitous use of certain sacred numbers and ratios can be found throughout history, influencing from art and architecture to the development of religion and secret societies. In Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization, Richard Heath reveals the origins, widespread influences, and deeper meaning of these synchronous numerical occurrences and how they were left within our planetary environment during the creation of the earth, the moon, and our solar system. By examining prehistoric and monumental cultures through the Dark Ages and later recorded history, Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilizations provides a key to understanding the true role and meaning of number."--BOOK JACKET.
