Earth Grid Research » 23 June 06

[UPDATE: Cuboctahedron added, and bearing function on the web interface fixed. You can use the convenient web interface to generate Google Earth files that show earth overlaid with one of the five platonic solids, cuboctahedron, or Becker-Hagens grid, with all vertices connected by lines. Simply visit the following two links and follow the instructions.

Google EarthGrid (Bearing)

This does away with having to download and install the Python framework, though the script is still available and updated via the link later in the article, see the section in this article titled “Computer Program”.]


This is a quick write-up of my ongoing research into the earth grid. Skip to the next section if you wish to bypass my technical speculation on the nature of gridpoints.

Within the spherical center of large masses is a neutral center. John Keely worked extensively with the vibrational neutral centers of resonating masses. I define the neutral center as a point at which the gravitational field sums to zero but gravitational potential is quite high. If sufficiently high, time slows to a crawl and becomes imaginary, meaning spacetime breaks down and opens a window into other dimensions and densities. The Cassiopaeans said the centers of stars and planets are windows.

Neutral centers can be created electromagnetically via radially converging or diverging electric current pulses, spherical standing waves in piezoelectric materials, or via the radial null vectors of large masses as described above.

The earth’s own neutral center is a dimensional window that vibrates at frequencies resonant with the earth’s own spherical harmonics. I’m not certain whether these spherical harmonics correlate to mechanical, electromagnetic, or gravitational vibrations. Whatever the case, standing waves are set up that create equally spaced node and antinodal points on earth’s surface. These points are spaced in various configurations matching the Platonic solids: tetrahedron, octahedron, cube, icosahedron, and dodecahedron.

These standing waves pull from the central dimensional window multiple vortical conduits. Unlike a neutral center which has a null point in the middle of a sphere, these vortical conduits have a null axis inside a tubular vortex. They pierce the earth’s surface at the aforementioned node or antinode points.

Thus, there are dimensional window points spaced equally apart on the earth’s surface – these are the primary earth grid points and correspond to the vertices of the Platonic solids. Their electromagnetic configuration includes little if any magnetic, electric, or gravitational components except in special circumstances at special times. Their primary electromagnetic structure consists of potential fields, both magnetic, electric, and gravitational potential, which are not easily detectable.

Based on calculations, one possible magnetic profile of such a conduit should consist of circular magnetic fields that are weakest at the center and increase in magnitude with distance from the center, a vector plot looking similar to how wheat is laid down in crop circles. This is exactly the reverse of how ordinary magnetic fields behave, which drop off with distance instead. This “reverse magnetism” was hinted by the annotators of the book Case for the UFO in regards to gridpoints.

Safe to say, specialized instruments are needed to detect these gridpoints. Such conduits may, however, alter the dynamic characteristics of oscillating electric and magnetic fields brought into them, so a device that can measure displacement current would suffice.

Platonic Grids

So assuming the earth grid network is distributed like the corners of Platonic solids, plotting the grid would require placing each solid within the globe, aligning one vertex to a chosen geographic location and rotating the rest of the vertices to find all other points. There may be other grids, but here I’m dealing solely with the Platonic grid.

Richard Hoagland has investigating the tetrahedral model. Placed within the earth, a tetrahedron with vertex at the north pole has the other three points touching 19.47 degrees south of the equator, and an inverted tetrahedron will have base vertices touching 19.47 degrees north, which falls right on the Hawaiian islands on earth and the Big Red Spot on Jupiter. But the other four Platonic solids are just as important.

The Becker-Hagens Grid incoporates both the Platonic solids and the hexakis icosahedron to create a grid of 62 points. It is worth reading the work of Becker and Hagens as they delved deeply into the historical backup for such a grid. A decent article in PDF format can be downloaded here .

There is an interesting map drawn by Admiral Piri Reis in 1513, assembled from fragments of other maps known at the time. These maps were anomalously advanced and probably put together from maps dating back to the first several millennia after the Great Flood.

I realized the map showed a grid system that conformed precisely to a dodecahedral configuration overlayed upon the globe. So it seems the ancients were well aware of the earth grid and Platonic solids correspondence — most likely it used to be standard knowledge.

Computer Program

Now, to test the theory it would be necessary to create a computer program that could calculate the latitude and longitude coordinates of all Platonic solid vertices within the earth given a set of lock coordinates and bearing or rotation angle around that point.

Thus I created a couple scripts written in Python that would produce a list of coordinates that could then be plotted in Google Earth. Here is what the dodecahedron grid looks like:

Two Python scripts, an example output, and a readme file are available in the zip package. The first script ( requires entering the chosen type of grid, lock longitude, lock latitude, and bearing angle. The second ( is similar but instead of bearing requires a second coordinate point to align the grid with. Instructions are included in the package.

To run them, some quick instructions:

How To Generate the Platonic Grid using Python

1. Install Google Earth. Broadband recommended.

2. Install Python, a programming language. (Use only version 2.7.x)

3. Download the zip file containing


4. From the Python folder, run IDLE and open one of the above scripts. It will appear in a separate editor window.

5. Hit F5 from the editor window to run the script, or
go to Run -> Run Module

Input prompts and possible values are as follows:

Shape? tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, dodecahedron, beckerhagens

Latitude? latitude of the locking coordinate (negative for S)

Longitude? longitude of locking coordinate (negative for W)

Bearing? angle in degrees from true north, sets how grid is rotated around locking coordinate

Instead of bearing, the script will ask for header coordinates, the point toward which the grid will be rotated. It calculates the bearing angle for you.

6. Locate the output file (ends with .kml) and open it with Google Earth.

Recently (November 2007) I created a web interface to allow generation of these files through your web browser. See the very beginning of this article for details.

Test Grids

Where to look? Starting with the Piri Reis map, one can get a pretty nice match using the Becker-Hagens grid. After playing around with the scripts, aligning various grids to various major landmarks including the Great Pyramids, I recalled an interesting passage from Umberto Eco’s book Foucault’s Pendulum:

Now we had the entire modern age filled with industrious moles tunneling through the earth, spying on the planet from below. But there had to be something else, another venture the Baconians had set in motion, whose results, whose stages were before everyone’s eyes, though no one had noticed them…The ground had been punctured and the deep strata tested, but the Celts and the Templars had not confined themselves to digging wells; they had planted their stations and aimed them straight to the heavens, to communicate from megalith to megalith, and to catch the influences of the stars.

The idea came to Belbo during a night of insomnia. He leaned out the window and saw in the distance, above the roofs of Milan, the lights of the steel tower of the Italian Radio, the great city antenna. A moderate, prudent Babel. And he understood. “The Eiffel Tower,” he said to us the next morning. “Why didn’t we think of it before? The metal megalith, the menhir of the last Celts, the hollow spire taller than all Gothic spires. What need did Paris have of this useless monument? It’s the celestial probe, the antenna that collects information from every hermetic valve stuck into the planet’s crust: the statues of Easter Island; Machu Picchu; the Statue of Liberty, conceived first by the initiate Lafayette; the obelisk of Luxor; the highest tower of Tomar; the Colossus of Rhodes, which still transmits from the depths of a harbor that no one can find; the temples of the Brahman jungle; the turrets of the Great Wall; the top of Ayers Rock; the spires of Strasbourg, which so delighted the initiate Goethe; the faces of Mount Rushmore — how much the initiate Hitchcock understood! — and the TV antenna of the Empire State Building. And tell me to what empire this creation of American initiates refers if not the empire of Rudolf of Prague! The Eiffel Tower picks up signals from underground and compares them with what comes from the sky. And who is it who gave us the first, terrifying movie image of the Tour Eiffel? Rene Clair, in Paris qui dort. Rene Clair, R.C.”

The entire history of science had to be reread. Even the space race became comprehensible, with those crazy satellites that did nothing but photograph the crust of the globe to localize invisible tensions, submarine tides, currents of warmer air. And speak among themselves, speak to the Tower, to Stonehenge….

Check out the book, it’s interesting and stocked with clues and secrets hidden in plain sight for those with eyes to see. Basic plot revolves around three intellectuals stumbling upon a Templar conspiracy to jack into the earth grid and thereby attain ultimate power, a conspiracy initiated six hundred years ago and awaiting a time when technology would be sufficient to make use of these gridpoints.

That the Eiffel Tower might be on a grid point seems logical, and with the Python scripts wouldn’t take much time to test. Inputs were as follows:

Shape? dodecahedron
Latitude of lock coordinate? 48.858209
Longitude of lock coordinate? 2.294359
Bearing? 0

Bingo! With one dodecahedron vertex on Paris, the other grid points aligned with the North and South poles, the two major Piri Reis map gridpoints, the Hawaiian Islands, and Mecca. The chances of this are pretty slim, so I would say with certainty that Paris was intentionally built on a major gridpoint. Here is the output:

Click here for map comparisons (this compares the Piri Reis map to a simpler plot created with PhiGrid*/ instead of Google Earth because for this illustration it makes the points easier to see. The PhiGrid website is gone, but here is a copy of the PhiGrid software). You can download the KML showing a dodecahedron grid aligned to Paris and open it with Google Earth to see for yourself. The Becker-Hagens grid aligned to Paris may also be downloaded.

The calculated coordinates are close enough for horseshoes, off just a little perhaps due to either the rotational pole having wandered slightly or the calculations not taking into account the earth being a slightly oblate spheroid — most likely both.

The one shortcoming of the Becker-Hagens grid is that it has only one alignment. Perhaps there are other alignments. Before the Great Flood, the earth’s pole was located somewhere in middle to northern Hudson Bay, so the earth grid back then was aligned differently. In fact, it could wander over a period of several hundred or thousand years after a major pole shift before it settles into its stable configuration we know today. Different ancients sites built at different times may therefore be aligned to different grids due to the shifting grid alignment with shifting rotational pole orientation.

The ancients, if they were aware of these grids, would need a flexible way of calculating what gridpoints at one period in time correspond with gridpoints at another period in time — in fact, in the Becker-Hagens article linked above there is mention of a globe contraption with an adjustible grid cage over a sphere:

…it may very well be possible these were used to calculate grid shifts over time, which would make sense only if gridpoints can be used for teleportation both through space and through time.

So Paris is on the grid. Perhaps other major landmarks are located on other grids. These other grids could be other Platonic shapes or perhaps the same shape but different alignment.

Whatever the case, once the gridpoints are known the next question is when do they activate, if ever? My hypothesis is that astrological alignments answer this question. In the end, one computer program should be able to plot all the gridpoints and what times they activate. Something like this was discussed in the Time Vector Field Chronicles.

This would have use in tracking ritualistic and extraterrestrial activity, and later to be coupled with technology allowing teleportation, reality engineering, healing, free energy, and antigravity.
