Présentation de l'éditeur

The priests of ancient Egypt preserved a geometrical canon, a numerical code of harmonies and proportions, that they applied to music, art, statecraft, and all the institutions of their civilization. Plato, an initiate in the Egyptian mysteries, said it was the instrument by which the ancients maintained high, principled standards of civilization and culture over thousands of years. In The Dimensions of Paradise, John Michell describes the results of a lifetime’s research, demonstrating how the same numerical code underlies sacred structures from ancient times to the Christian era. In the measurements of Stonehenge, the foundation plan of Glastonbury, Plato’s ideal city, and the Heavenly City of the New Jerusalem described in the vision of Saint John lie the science and cosmology on which the ancient world order was founded. The central revelation of this book is a structure of geometry and number representing the essential order of the heavens and functioning as a map of paradise.

A Curious Book 29 novembre 2010
Par MysticJaguar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very curious book. The author presents alot of information form a English/Western-centric viewpoint. He knows about Plato and Pythagoras but [apparently at least in this book] little about Egypt and India. He spends alot of time in Gematria which is an adjunct to Sacred Geometry but not the entire story. Many times the theme comes back to the New Jerusalem and the NJ star. But if you are looking for a breakout from a Euro-centric perspective to Sacred Geometry (SG) you will be disappointed. And this is a common problem with SG books. Most authors cannot get past the Greek or Medieval understandings of SG.

If you want to go back further in time and recover some more ancient principles then John Anthony West in Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt is a good resource. He makes Schwaller de Lubitz, a master of SG, understandable. If you are looking for current teachers in SG then you can check out BioGeometry TM by Ibrahim Karim. Also Charles Gilchrist is another reliable source. I would however avoid Drunvalo Melchizedek. DM's earlier works are worth a look The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life: Volume 1 (Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life). However there is little that you can apply and his later works become an ego-trip Serpent of Light: Beyond 2012.

New View Over Atlantis and Dimensions of Paradise both reveal ancient wisdom on sacred measurements 4 octobre 2012
Par David Montaigne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I first read John Michell's "The New View Over Atlantis" about 25 years ago. I was too young to appreciate it at the time; to me it seemed like hippy nonsense trying to pass itself off as some kind of ancient science through the allure of Arthurian legend. Reading it again many years later, I was able to appreciate that a great deal of ancient wisdom is passed down through generations of ignorance precisely because it was successfully hidden and blended into myth and legend. Many numbers, and the relationships between them, are significant not because they are derived from the words and numbers our ancestors choose to use - but very much the other way around - our ancestors derived words and numerical relationships from observing and measuring the earth and the heavens.

In "The Dimensions of Paradise" Michell continues to expound on a lifelong theme - that ancient civilizations had an incredible level of science and technology. Specifically, they understood geometry and mathematics, used them to obtain accurate measurements of the earth, the moon, and the sun, along with the distances between them. The ancients did not merely know these measurements (better than we did until quite recently) and express them in their original units of measure; they created systems of measurement based on known lengths, defining units in proportion to the cosmos. So it is should not be surprising to see examples where our ancestors used these measures and relationships to build monuments around the world. It was not just a vain attempt to recreate heaven on Earth; it demonstrates harmonics that work on the scale of stars and planets and moons, right down to pleasing forms in pyramids, temples, and calendar-stones. The same numbers, proportions, and ideas are also expressed in mythical construction around the world, from Plato's Magnesia and Atlantis to the Bible's New Jerusalem and beyond.

Because of the numerous forms these measures took in ancient expression, we can more easily rediscover their knowledge after dark ages of forgotten wisdom. We are forced to recognize that many ancient units of measure, and even the English units still used today, are derived from the same system. "The Dimensions of Paradise" is an excellent introduction to sacred geometry, gematria, and ancient systems of measure. But it is not light reading and a good background in ancient history and mythology will help readers appreciate Michell's exposition of ancient wisdom. As an author myself, (End Times and 2019: The End of the Mayan Calendar and the Countdown to Judgment Day and Antichrist 2016-2019: Mystery Babylon, Barack Obama & the Islamic Caliphate) I will say that JM's two books were of great help to my own writing efforts, as the knowledge Michell reveals allowed me to synthesize many related ideas over a broad range of topics.

Anyone interested in these topics may also want to read books like Hapgood's "Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," Weidner and Bridges' "The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye," and de Santillana and von Dechend's "Hamlet's Mill." Many unusual numbers that stand out in the Bible, and throughout world mythology, will also take on new meaning after reading Michell's work.

FASCINATING READ! 15 avril 2014
Par Mike Grant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Since flipping through The Painter's Secret Geometry: A Study of Composition in Art, I was looking to read more about the sacred geometry that is found in beautiful things like paintings, natural creations, and archicture and WOW I learned so much more! Although a little more new-agey than I am used to, the ancient wisdom really resonated with me.

Dense, but full of surprises. 7 janvier 2014
Par matthew Shortridge - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
You have to really work to get through this book, not because it is poorly written--quite the opposite. But if you are curious about the knowledge systems of the ancient world and how they may have encoded their mysterious wisdom into the number systems that we use today--sounds wierd--there is a lot here. Michell was a true visionary and a serious scholar. No lightweight new age stuff here, though many of his ideas have become tenets of the New Age world view. The core of Michell's writing is utterly fascinating.
