I remembered from fourth grade history that the ancient Chaldeans of Mesopotamia utilized a base 6 number system (we use base 10 now), which struck me as odd at the time, but years later, while trying to make practical sense of the precession numbers in ancient legends, calendar systems, and archaic architectures, numbers such as 6, 12, 24, 30, 36, 72, 108, 432, in finally deducing the ancient mapping methodology used by the ancients to survey the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as, measure and map the earth by the changing positions of the stars in the night sky (see article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com), I also recalled that the length of one side of a hexagon is the same length as the radius of a circle which circumscribes the hexagon, so there was the key to relate stellar time to geometry (which means earth measure), measuring the stars’ apparent movement, which occurs at the constant rate of 72 years/degree (because of the slow wobble of the earth’s axis), relative to a hexagon, in the plane of the earth’s equator, which is circumscribed by the circle of the earth.

With this methodology, the ancients established ley line systems, radial lines emanating from geographical nexus points, such as the system of ley lines from the archaic site at Alaise, France, radiating over hill and dale in all directions from that location, along which towns and sacred sites were established, according the earth measure (geo metry), because the ley lines radiate for hundreds of miles, radiating with great geometric precision, indicating that they measured east-west distances accurately, which requires accurate time measurement, but they didn’t have accurate time pieces for solar time back then, so they measured the much slower rate of precession, measurable therefore by simple archaic mechanical devices, such as the Celtic Cross (the Dixon Relict), Maui’s Tanawa, the Mayan Staff of Power, and the Antikythera Device, used to measure and map the earth, yet not admitted by mainstream science.

The medieval maps, Oronteus Finnaeus and Piri Reis, which were drawn from ancient source maps, accurately showing the shoreline and low mountain ranges of ice age Antarctica, early in the Ice Age actually, as they are now beneath thousands of feet of snow and ice, but they were accurately drawn on these maps, proving that navigators were mapping the globe even early in the Ice Age, the Ice Age which actually ended circa 1500 B.C.  Read on under the various categories here to see the mountain of corroborating evidence, and checkout the free ebook download of my first book, Old Earth?
