Number, Reality and the Prehistoric Origins of Measure.
The John Michell Memorial Lecture, presented by Christine Rhone
The field of megalithic science, like the ancient sites themselves, stands at a crossroads between the intuitive and the scientific. The study of an-cient metrology re-discovered by John Neal and John Michell reveals previ-ously unrecognised insights into the intentions of stone age architects to hold these two worlds in balance through the practice of harmonic measure. From the earliest stone circles to the pyramids and temples of antiquity, this talk will explore how hidden in plain sight in the traditional measures of every nation are the keys to startling insights of prehistoric consciousness into the nature of number and reality.
