Scott Onstott - Explorations in Number, Architecture & Consciousness
August 2, 2013
Scott Onstott graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in Architecture. He began his career doing manual drafting and later gained experience in several prominent engineering, architecture and interiors firms in San Francisco. He's taught over 45 semester courses at three Bay Area colleges and has written and edited dozens of technical computer books. Scott is also the maker of "Secrets in Plain Sight," a video exploring art, architecture, and urban design which unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history. In this program we talk about Scott's book "Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture, and Consciousness." The book 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. We'll discuss familiar structures in the tangible world but also in the invisible world, including the question of consciousness. In the second hour, we proceed to discuss origins of knowledge, units and measurement. Through the evolution of form and our changing awareness it might seem like myth, magic, gods and symbols have been lost, but we still have them within us. Later, Scott explains the four different types of "Encoders," who are responsible for the patterns that he's found. From conspiracy to a higher force, we speculate on human origins and alien intervention. Scott says that everything is awareness and that we must enjoy the dance of life.

Scott Onstott comes across as such a lovely bloke.

This interview has come in the nick of time for me as I have been feeling totally overwhelmed by suggestions that we are all under threat - there is nothing anyone of integrity can do to shift the balance. The mainstream media have certainly pushed the ideas that render me feeling helpless.

This gentle interview with powerful and intelligent content has helped me to regroup and reassess putting my attention into something more meaningful.

I will be buying the book `Taking Measure'

Thank you Red Ice.

Speed of light and the Great Pyramid's latitude
Great interview, Onstott's work is amazing. I just want to point out something about the speed of light in a vacuum being encoded in the Great Pyramid of Giza's latitude. I'll copy paste what I just wrote him so that listeners can be aware not to repeat the same mistake :

Latitudes only uses 4 digits after the comma and not 7. So it still encodes it but it's not as impressive as it is presented because it leaves out the last 3 digits ; Speed of light = 299 792 458 m / s and the Pyramid's latitude is 29.9792 north. To verify that yourself you'll notice in google maps that 29.9792458 north will produce the same result as 29.9792111 north; the last three digits are irrelevant. Again, the speed of light can still be written as C: 299 792, therefore if the ancients would've wanted to encode this measurement they indeed picked the perfect location, I just think it's important to be precise with this kind of amazing claim.

esoteric things
Very interesting but is it dangerous for ordinary people to know about esoteric things? Check the following link:
By the way, I was unable to download rir from home some weeks in spring!

Listened to this last night and found info on this substance this morning. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal or honeycomb pattern. It has some amazing properties. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_eTLPKdrHs

Loved this episode. I wanted to ask Scott a question...I was doing some searching on the great pyramid and someone brought up a point i wanted to ask about. They said that because of possible tectonic shifts, it isnt possible to know the exact coordinate location of the pyramid when it was built. What is your take? Thanks :)

Thank you for this interview. One of the best. Scott is a very close kindred spirit in terms of his research. I hope he is representative of a change in direction for us all.

Is it because of interviews like this that I joined the members section. this was a fantastic exchange that I could resonate with on many levels. pleasure to listen to you both! A breath of fresh mind-air! keep up the great work.

An intriguing interview.
Thanks for having such an informed guest. Scott's encoders of the third kind sound like Carl Jung's autonomous contents of the unconscious, or archetypal beings, whose origin Carl said couldn't be known at the time.

Far from needing entheogens to tap these sources, we interact with these beings through visions and dreams already, either consciously or unconsciously. Can they be the hyper-spatial or inter-dimensional beings described by Scott? Also, his ideas about awareness relate specifically to this dialogue with these worlds.

Fascinating topic tonight, filled with thoughtful ideas.

What a lovely interview trying to explain the unexplainable so that the unexplainable can be explained who ever it can never be explained?Another step forward in our spiritual growth & creating a realistic view for our destiny.
