The Squared Circle of the Earth and Moon, and Other Coincidences

Updated on May 22, 2014

Why these Coincidences in Geometry and Astronomy?

The Earth and Moon fit into a squared circle nearly perfectly. Why is this?

If you want to try it, draw a square, and then center a circle on it of the same length. This is what is called in geometry a squared circle. Next, draw a circle inside the square that touches the sides of the square. Imagine this is the Earth. Next, draw a smaller circle on the top of the square, so it's center touches the top of the larger circle. Drawn to scale, these figures would fit the Earth and Moon nearly perfectly. The Great Pyramid also fits in the model, with the apex touching the center of the moon, and the base touching the center of the Earth. Two Pythagorean 3-4-5 triangles also fit into the model. All of this is an amazing coincidence, don't you think?

What's even more interesting are the numbers. The numbers 1080, 2160, and 5040 also come into play, which are divisions of the Precession of the Equinoxes. The Moon's diameter is 1080 miles. The Sun's diameter is 864,000 miles, with 864 fitting in with these sacred geometrical numbers as well.

These are coincidences supposedly, but I don't think they are. I think they follow some kind of pattern that is a natural part of how the Universe works.

Even solar eclipses are strange. How likely is it that we happen to live in the perfect time when the sun and moon are able to create perfect eclipses, a true rarity in the Universe? I don't think this is a coincidence either. There are just too many of these happening for it to be a matter of chance. There are patterns and laws we are unaware of .

I apologize for the bad drawing, but it was the best I could do on the spur of the moment, freehand. But I wanted to give an illustration of what I am referring to in this Hub. Maybe I will replace it with a better one at a later time. You can also Google "squared circle Earth Moon" and look for yourself for a better diagram of the system of sacred geometry I'm talking about.

Stonehenge also has the same squared circle diagram. Even the same numbers in feet are used, amazingly. Especially since they measured in the Megalithic Yard. How can the same numbers be used when they didn't even use feet and inches at the time? That is the strangest part of all, one for which I won't even try to give an explanation for.

      Great information - very intriguing. Something new to keep in mind when I'm looking towards the sky. I have a good personal reference to consult regarding matters of sacred geometry, but now I'll delve into it a bit myself.

      Thanks for the inspiration!

      This article is full of inaccuracies.

      (1) Squaring the circle is the ancient problem of constructing a circle and square that have the same area using only straightedge and compass. You wrote "length" instead of area. I'm not sure what you mean by that because it could refer to either the diameter or perimeter, but it's wrong either way.

      (2) If you draw a square with a same area circle superimposed, and then draw the other circles as in your diagram, you don't get a 3-4-5 pythagorean triangle on the inside or on the outside. You don't get a golden mean or fibonacci triangle either like I've seen some websites claim.

      A lot of the sacred geometry webpages are just copying each other and propagating the same inaccuracies because nobody actually sits down and does the hard boring math to see if it's really true. If you believe it hard enough I guess it's true? Reminds me of the time the state of Indiana tried to pass a bill that legally defined pi as 3.2.
