Pythagoras, Ancient Egypt and the “Cayce Cubit”:
Elegance in the union of Heaven and Earth: Science and Spirituality
I have written several articles about what I call the “Cayce Cubit” or “Spinal Cubit” that, according to the Cayce readings, was in use in ancient Egypt in the construction of its monuments and temples. You can find many of these articles on this website and the Edgar Cayce website. The “Cayce Cubit’s” use and elegance was not something I took at face value, I was a “doubting Thomas” and wanted to see and find the proof, the evidence of its possible use and I did time and time again. I found evidence of an ancient Egyptian cubit called a Nb, Nbi, or Nebiu by Egyptologists of 27.5 inches and discovered cultural significance for its use with multiple aspects in ancient Egypt in their construction and spiritual philosophy. Further that this Cayce Cubit functioned ideally as a “2-second”pendulum (swung from the horizontal), the length of a “2-second” pendulum; the “2-seconf pendulum” being one of the finalist proposals for determining the original length of the meter as an international standard measure. Additionally there is significant evidence that this Cayce unit of measurement was used at other sacred sites around the globe to connect Heaven and Earth such as Chichen Itza, Mexico and Stonehenge in England.
Recently as I have gone the Cayce readings again I have come across another amazing “nugget” with beautiful and elegant significance of the using and symbolism for the “Cayce Cubit”. It is a reading about the time of the high priest “Ra-Ta” in ancient Egypt, circa 10,500 BC. The readings is about the beginning of the construction of the “temple beautiful and the “temple of sacrifice” and that during this period the ancient Egyptians had other temples with the description of one used for “birthing” at the time to facilitate bring in the most perfect newborns. The reading included the dimensions of the birthing rooms.
The rooms, as would be sized as we would call, were 7 feet X 9 feet in their size, with 8 to 10 feet in the height … Those that were born in same were immediately, or after three months, taken from their own families and raised in those groups which were confined in other buildings for those purposes. Reading 294-149
Why this reading did not catch my attention before, I do not know, but this time I thought to apply the “Cayce Cubit” to the room dimensions. After doing so I sat back and smiled in awe, again at the elegance of it all. The results give you a room that is 3 x 4 (in Cayce cubits). Perhaps the reader asks why this seems so significant and elegant. The reason being, dear reader is that if you divide this rectangular room dimension diagonally making two right triangles, the result is two right triangles that are 3 x 4 x 5. This creates the prime and perfect Pythagorean right triangle probably known better as A-squared times B-squared = C-squared!!
Pythagoras, the ancient Greek philosopher that so little is known of and his “Mystery School”, it is believed he traveled to India, Persia, Phoenicia, and in particular Egypt in acquiring his knowledge and wisdom.
What Pythagoras is credited for in reference to this prime Pythagorean triangle is that it is the most prefect beautiful triangle representing a triad of equilibrium, knowledge and wisdom. That it is the progenitor of polygons and symbolizes the trinity of the masculine – feminine – offspring, the spirit body and soul, the triad of Osiris – Isis – Horus.
Thus this creates in the Ancient Egyptian Philosophy the perfect dimensions for a room to bring new life into the Earth. The dimensions described for exactly such rooms in ancient Egypt in the Cayce readings. The Cayce readings again and again show that these are active living readings that continually have knowledge and wisdom to share with seekers. That the readings should be reviewed on a regular basis; for when the student is ready the teacher will appear.
