Pétur Halldórsson

The most ancient of man´s achievements seems to have been the hallowing of virgin land, a sermon that involved sanctification of various landmarks and construction of structures that were logically related, thereby bringing into being an Image of Creation in the form of a living cosmos.
Such an Image of Creation was a universal Cosmic Image based on the proportions; 3, 6, 9, 27, 54, 108, 216 and 432, with a fixed diameter of ca. 66.600 m, 43200 5 foot strides, or 216000 feet. Its center was a measured squared cycle with a diameter of 11.278 m, 36500 feet, which is 6 minutes of the circumference of earth.
