Overview

Taking Measure reveals patterns emergent in our universe from quantum to astronomic scales. Spatial and temporal codes appear in unexpected places, from our units of measure to the relationships between celestial bodies. Geometric and numeric encoding appears in architecture, in urban design, and in alignments across the Earth. Does this happen by pure coincidence, has it been done to preserve knowledge, or is it an ancient form of magic that continues to this day? Are the synchronicities we experience in our personal lives manifestations of these same patterns? This book takes a new look at familiar structures in the tangible world but also engages with the invisible world, including the question of consciousness.
