** Humanities Units of ****Volume**

The modern “**gallon**” of **231** cubic inches dates as far back as the late 14^{th} century when King Richard III proclaimed the wine *puncheon* as a cask holding **84** gallons and a *tierce *as a cask holding **42** gallons. The *gallon* itself was formally codified into English law around 1706-1707 under Queen Anne and was often referred to as the “wine gallon”. Up until then, there were several different “gallon” measures in use; but the *Roman gallon* was by far the oldest and one of the most common. Being exactly 1/8^{th} cubic foot, it measures just **216** cubic inches and thus is a little smaller than the modern gallon.

The *obvious* “difference” between these two volumes is **15** cubic inches. This can be considered the “overt” explanation. But there are *covert* mathematical relationships. A simple example of one of the most obvious of these is by expressing **15** *cubic* *inches* as **1.0** / .0**666**… cubic inches. In this way, the difference between the two gallons is simply:

216 **+**** [ 1/.0666…] ****= **231

** **These covert explanations will reveal this *difference* in manners that clearly show *why* these volume quantities were chosen. They will show as well, *why* these quantities are also an inseparable part of the previously exposed **27***mg weight system* based on whole unit cubical assemblages. *Artifacts* of this system’s imprint on the gallon measures can be seen in the following equation:

231 ― 231**[ 27 ****∕**** 6400 ]**^{1/2}** = **216

** **What this equation shows us is that the volume of the Roman gallon differs from the modern gallon *only* by a [ **27** ∕ **6400 **]^{1/2 } portion of the modern gallon. Here the number **27** obviously relates to the geometry of the *weight measures*; and as we will soon see, the number **6400** and its’ powers is inextricably woven into *land* measures.

Compare the last simple equation above with this simple ratio:

1/32 : [1/32] +** [ (27) ^{ 1/2} / 640 ] **

This ratio compares humanities’ two measures of length, i.e. the “*inchmeasure*” and the “*metermeasure*”. The unit of length which we all call an “inch” contains either **32** *one-thirty-secondths* of an inch, or **25.4** “*one-twenty-five.fourths”* of an inch, which is one *millimeter*. Obviously the millimeter is the larger of the two measures. So how do they compare? * They relate like the simple quantities expressed in the ratio immediately above*: 1/32

^{nd}of an inch (the “

*inchmeasure*”) to 1/32

^{nd}+ [ (

**27**)

^{ 1/2}/

**640**], the “

*metermeasure*”.

Now look at the two equations above. The first (231 ― 231**[27 ****∕**** 6400] ^{1/2} = **216) described the relationship between the modern gallon and ancient Roman gallon; and the second 1/32 : [1/32] +

**[(27)**

^{ ½}**∕**

**640]**between the ancient

*inch*measure and modern

*meter*measure. (Note that even the numbers patterning 1/32 =

**231**

*backwards*.)

Nobody can deny that these two (overtly) *vastly different systems of measures* appear * to have been derived from the same foundational mathematics*. And it is obvious they are in conformance with the

**27**

*milligram*system of

*weight*measures already exposed in the previous chapters.There can be no denying that all of this turns “history”

*upside-down*! So hold on. What follows is unequivocal, and completely defies the historical record.

In this system of *volume* accounting the fundamental unit of account is the *cubic inch*. Both of these gallons can be modeled by *perfectly complete* cuboids assembled from cubes measuring 1 cubic inch. The Roman gallon, for example, as an eighth of a cubic foot is a 6 X 6 X 6 inch cube in its most natural modeling form. But a 2 X 2 X 54 assemblage works; so does 2 X 4 X **27**; or 3 X 4 X 18; or 3 X 6 X 12, etc. However, with respect to the modern gallon of 231 cubic inches *there is only one combination that will assemble into a perfectly complete cuboid*: **3 X 7 X 11**. Because these quantities are all “prime numbers” there can be no other workable combination. This limits the modeling of the modern gallon *to just this one form*.

To the casual observer, and to history itself for that matter, there is really no relationship between these two *gallon* measures let alone between them and the *ounce* measures. This is because the geometry that was used to determine the sizes of these measures has never been disclosed and is still, *up until now*, a closely guarded secret.

Now keep in mind that prior to the introduction of the *avoirdupois ounce* and the *modern gallon* there was already the *troy ounce* and *Roman gallon*. A few pages back, the reader was shown (in a photo) how the two ounces actually share a common core from which either ounce can be made by adding one *complete* additional layer of cubes on one or another face. This *identical modeling* *transformation* likewise characterizes the two gallon measures. Depicted below are these two gallons along with *their* “common core”.

This *common core* is modeled on what was known at the time of the Romans as a “mason’s perch”. From Roman times on, the “perch” was a unit of volume containing **24.75** cubic feet. Since the *perch* was also a unit of *length* equal to **16.5** feet, the traditional *volumetric* perch most commonly measured **1.0 **X **1.5** X **16.5** feet. If one regards the *volume* of the *perch* as being comprised of Roman gallons, then the traditional *perch* can be modeled by **198** cubes with each cube measuring **6** X **6** X **6** inches. This particular “unit” of masonry is depicted in the photo below. Notice that its “natural” vertical sub-divisioning is into two **99** cube assemblages; and horizontally into three **66** cube assemblages.

As mentioned, the cubes comprising the “perch” in the above photo can be viewed as each being a Roman gallon of **216** cubic inches. And again, as previously mentioned, *this “perch model” is also the model of the core of both gallons*; but *only* if the cubes are* rescaled* to represent “cubic inches” (instead of Roman gallons). Then this volume is simply *reconfigured* into a cuboid measuring **3** X **6** X **11** inches (as depicted in the first photo standing aside the two gallons). Later we will see how the *perch*, as a **16.5** foot measure of length, further incorporates the geometric and mathematical properties of the *gallon* measures into *land *survey and *surface*–*area*–*unit* sub-divisioning (as well as monetary and weight measures).

One good example of this transition from the gallon (volume) measures to those of land (area) measures is seen when we convert the **198** Roman gallons that comprise the *perch* into cubic inches:

**198 X 216 cu.in. = 42,768 cu.in. **

**and**

**43,560 in. – 792 in. = 42,768 in.**

Without going into details here, since we are presently looking at the *volume* measures, we see that in terms of *the quantity* of cubic inches that are in a *perch*, that there is a direct and *exact* correspondence to *the quantity* of square feet in an “acre” (43,560) and the quantity of inches in the surveyor’s chain of **66** feet (since **66** X **12**” = **792** in.).

So clearly it is no accident that the models of these *gallons* and their common core mirror the same geometry and transformations that we saw when modeling the troy and avoirdupois *ounces*. And just as the previously exposed geometry clearly answered the question as to *why* there is **12** and **16** ounces in each of the respective *pounds*, geometry will likewise prove *why there are ***42*** gallons in the old tierce and its’ modern version, the “ petro barrel”*.

**“The Modern “Petro-Barrel”**

** ** The history of “barrel-size” containers predates King Richard III’s proclamation in the late 1400’s that a *tierce* would contain precisely **42** gallons (of **231** *cubic* inches). So we do know for certain that *the ***42*** gallon container has been with us for a very long time*. By 1700 many of the American colonies had legislated this **42** gallon *tierce* as the standard shipping container for a variety of bulk commodities. This all happened long before the fledgling oil industry ever shipped a barrel of oil. Despite the conflicting historical *mythology* surrounding the oil industry they simply adopted the most abundant and readily available container of their day.

Obviously the question here is “why **42** gallons”? Is that volume special, or simply one that evolved through practical application on a human’s scale, just as our history leads us to believed? The conclusion that this *is* a “special” and very carefully “chosen” quantity, designed to conform to the Illuminati’s occult system of mathematics and geometry, will be unequivocally and indisputably proven by the following simple math and geometry.

When we looked at the picture of the modeled *volume* of the *modern gallon* unit, we saw a perfect cuboid comprised of **231** *one-cubic-inch* sub-divisions. They arrange in layers with **3** cubes by **7** cubes, and these stack **11** layers high. Remember, since they are all primes, there is no other arrangement of these cubes possible that will create a *perfectly complete* cuboid. Now let’s arrange **42** of these cuboids into one single form and see what we get.

First, the base of the modern gallon’s cuboid is a rectangle **3** inches by **7** inches; and, **3** X **7** = **21**. This means that precisely **21** of these gallon cuboids fit “perfectly” in a *square* measuring exactly **21**” X **21**”. This is done by arranging them into *three* rows with each row containing *seven* gallons; their **3**” X **11**” faces combine to form one **21**” long by **11**” high rectangular plane. When the three rows are snuggled-up together, another **21**” long by **11**” high rectangular plane is created. When *an additional layer* of these **21** tightly arranged gallon cuboids is set atop the **21** already arranged as described (bringing the total to **42** gallons) we now have a new very special cuboid, as is pictured below.

This new **42** gallon cuboid is described as follows: one perfect cube (assembled from 1-cubic-inch sub-unit cubes) measuring **21**” X **21**” X **21**”, * with one additional complete layer of sub-unit cubes added to any one of its faces*. This is the model after which is patterned the late medieval

*tierce*, the 18

^{th}-19

^{th}centuries standard shipping container for practically any commodity, and which is today commonly referred to as a

*petro-barrel*.

When studying the next photograph, it is essential that the reader understand this older **42** gallon *tierce*, and its’ twice volumed *puncheon* were standardized and written into English statute *at about the same* *time* in the late fourteen-hundreds as the new *avoirdupois* *ounce* and *pound*. This is an important correlation since in the previous chapter, the photograph of the avoirdupois pound likewise depicted two “cuboids” with each comprised of a perfect cube measuring **20** X **20** X **20** cubets per edge * with one additional complete layer of sub-unit cubes added to any one of its faces*.

These same two **½** *pound* cuboids are again pictured (on the left) in the next photograph. In this same photo (on the right) is the *puncheon*, modeled as two *tierce*. Its geometry is practically indistinguishable from the nearly identically modeled *AV* *pound*. These two vastly different measures . . . i.e., one of weight, the other *volume*, seem to defy their history *which makes no claim of any relationship between the two*.

So now we clearly see with our own eyes, that there is a *shared geometry* between humanities two ounces of *weight* measure, and the two “gallon” units of *volume* measure. These have manifest and taken precedence during the evolution of western civilization. And even though the fundamental unit of the *ounces* is the *grain*, and the fundamental unit of the *gallons* is the *cubic inch*, both can still be modeled by the same geometry using simple cubes, and * whole-unit geometric assemblages* of these cubes.

This next modeling should further dispel any notion that this could in any way be attributed to *coincidence* since it too eloquently answers the same simple question as to __why there is ____42__* gallons in the tierce and petro-barrel in the first place* rather than an even 40, or some other quantity? Remember, history tells us these are measures of

*convenience*which are scaled to this size so as to be comfortably handled by the average workman. Obviously that’s

*not*what was going on here. And further proof that the true answer is found in

*the*

*geometry of form*is again seen in the

*petro-barrel*itself.

In the next illustration a petro-barrel of **42** gallons has been disassembled into its constituent **1.0** cubic inch *cubets*. Since there is **231** cubic inches per gallon, the **42** gallons must total **9,702** cubic inches. If we arrange these 1” cubets 2-dimensionally on a flat surface, and package them in the *most geometrically economical manner*, we’ll arrive at a *“perfectly” imperfect* square measuring **99** cubets by **98** cubets. Each of the white squares in the illustration represents one cubic inch; and, **99** X **98** equals **9**,**702** cubic inches, which is **42** gallons.

The “perfectly complete” square, **99** cubic inches by **99** cubic inches, depicted in the illustration above, is likely* to be the true ideal maximum “volume” of the petro-barrel’s“ capacity”*. The barrel’s

*“content”*of

**42**gallons

*is*this perfect square

*less the one line of cubits*highlighted in red. These

**99**empty cubic inches would allow for the expansion of the fluid contents within the barrel due to changes in temperature and pressure. If this

*same ratio*of air space per barrel content were applied to a single gallon unit (measuring

**3**inches, by

**7**inches, by

**11**inches tall) 11.112244 . . . inches would be the container’s inside measure. This is less than one 1/8

^{th}of an inch between the top of the fluid and the top of the container to allow for expansion due to changes in temperature.

There are other properties of this **99** inch square that make it very “special” within this geometric hierarchy of weights and measures. For example, its **99** X **99** = **9,801** cubic inches is also **42 ^{3/7}** gallons. When this is re-written as

**297.0**/ 7 gallons; and

*again*as [(

**371.25**) X 8] / 7 gallons,

__we can see__:

*the U.S. monetary measures*distilled from the barrel’s*capacity***29.70**inches was the width of the full sheets of paper on which the

*old large paper notes*were printed. And again, it is the

**371.25**

*grains of pure silver*that gives the dollar coin its

*inherent*value.

The silver dollar coin’s *gross weight* of **412.5** grains is also a sub-unit of this **99** inch square derived from the petro-barrel’s capacity. We can note first of all, that **99** inches is also two times **4.125** feet. This means that it (a **99**” square) naturally sub-divides into square quarter-sections with each edge measuring **4.125** feet.

Overtly, the area of this **4.125 **foot square is 2,450.25 square inches. But *covertly* it is either **99** times **24.75** square inches (mirroring the **247.5** grains of pure gold in the $**10** dollar *eagle* coin); or, **66** times **371.25** square inches. So we can see in this one square, this quarter-section of the larger **99** inch square, *three of the primary monetary measures* defining the American system of coinage. And let’s not forget, that this system of areal measures just exposed (based on the square inch) came from us looking at *square* *inch* units representing the “cubic” *inch* units associated with the petro-barrel and its predecessors, the *tierce* and *puncheon*.

Thus far we’ve seen America’s (and much of the world’s) customary units of *volume* evolve into quantitative expressions of *area*. These, we’ve since discovered, are themselves reflections of America’s monetary units of *weight*. And now we find that *exactly* **640** of these **99** inch squares, laid out in a single line edge-to-edge, measures *exactly* **5,280** feet, or **1** *statute mile*. Moreover, these **640** “tiles”, **99** inches on a side, *exactly *covers an area that we’ve come to know as **1.0** *acre*; and **1.0** *square mile*, **1.0** *section *of a *township*, contains **640** acres. And remember that the difference between the *ancient* Roman gallon and the (comparatively) *modern* gallon unit of *volume* measures can simply be expressed (to a .**9999**8…degree of *perfection*) as:

**1 : 1 ****―**** [27 ****∕**** (640 X 10)] ^{1/2 } = 231 cu.in. : 216 cu.in.**

There is much more to be seen regarding the *volume* measures and their relationship to the eternal *ideal *forms of geometry. But that is for a later chapter or book explaining the *source* and *mechanism* by which these ideals were infused into *geometry*, *nature*, and ultimately the various manifestations of human *weights and measures*. But as a segway into a later chapter on the measures of geographical *distance* and *area* we’ll look once more at this **4.125 **foot unit and its fundamental relationship to the *Surveyor’s Chain*. Until the 1960’s, in America and elsewhere, the surveyor’s chain was the “yard stick” for land measurement. Overtly, it is **66** feet in length and divided into **100** “links”. Property lines were recorded in “chains and links” as opposed to feet and inches.

But to the *initiated*, the length of the surveyor’s chain is eight times **99** inches; or sixteen times **4.125** feet; or thirty-two times **24.75** inches. And each of its **100** links is eight times **.99** inch. From this perspective, the length of the surveyor’s chain is

**800 X .99”**

and is divisible by powers of two *and ten*. The idea back in the early 1600s, that’s when Edmund Gunter first introduced his measuring *chain*, was to slowly and subtly introduce a “base ten” system into humanity. Today we know it as the “metric system”.

**Measuring Agricultural Produce**

**The Geometry of the Bushel**

**And it’s Derivative Units**

** **** **Why is a “bushel” the size that it is? According to accepted history, it’s really anybody’s guess. What I mean by this is that history at least gives us a “story” about the *meter’s* origin from a French measurement of the earth’s quadrant in the 1790’s, but there is no comparable record for the system of *volume units* culminating in the “Winchester bushel” and its derivative sub-units.

This system of measuring agricultural produce goes back at least to the time of King Henry VII at the end of the 15^{th} century. It was first codified into English law by an Act of Parliament around 1697. It was defined as a cylinder **18.5** inches in *diameter* and **8** inches deep. This comes out to be 2150.42028… cubic inches. The United States *formally* adopted the Winchester bushel for measuring wheat in 1836 and refined the measure to *exactly* **2150.42** cubic inches.

Now, it’s worth asking *why*, in 1836, those in charge didn’t choose to just round off the measure even further to make it an even number of cubic inches. Why did they *choose* to leave less than a half of a cubic inch remnant, especially if *originally* its size was simply determined by subjective factors of human strength and convenience, rather than some conscious adherence to an occult geometry?

Well, the answer actually is an “occult geometry” and the relationship it discloses between the fundamental units of *surface area* and *volume*. But first it is helpful to understand that in the *Winchester System* the base-unit called a “pint” relates to the full “bushel” measure, in the same way that the “inch” measure relates to the “yard”. In this manner, twelve *inches* make a *foot*; three *feet* make a *yard*, and so on. In the Winchester system of dry measures two *pints* make a *quart*, four quarts make a *gallon*, two gallons make a *peck*, and four pecks make a *bushel*.

But, just how did *they* (yes, the *illuminati*) come up with this unit of measure if in fact it* is* derived from geometry’s fundamental units of *surface* *area *and *volume*? It turns out that their process was not only very clever but very simple as well. But before I explain *what* geometry they used to create this system of customary *dry measures*, let’s first see a few of the ways it relates to some of *their* other units of measure.

It starts with the *Roman gallon* of exactly one-eighth cubic foot (**216** cu. in.). This gallon most certainly pre-dates the *bushel’s* sub-unit* dry* *gallon* (**268.8025** cu. in.). Its possible the *gallon* measure we most commonly use today in America (**231** cu. in.), and in the past throughout the British Empire, came into existence at about the same time as the *dry* *gallon*. This might help explain *why* these three different *gallon* measures of *volume* quantities *are related* when they *shouldn’t* be . . . according to “history”. Of course, one wouldn’t be able to recognize these connections without first having some level of familiarity with the rest of the *illuminati’s* handiwork. America’s monetary system in 1792 is a good example for comparison.

Here is what I mean in simple mathematical expressions. First, compare the standard *gallon* measure with the *dry* *gallon* using the following ratios:

**Stnd. gal / Dry gal = 231 cu.in. / 268.8025 cu.in. = .8593**67008… **/ 1.000**

**And**

**Wt. silver $ / Wt. troy oz. = 412.5 grains / 480 grains = .8593**75** / 1.000**

**And**

**.859375 / .859367008… = .99999**0700…

The equations above show that the American *silver dollar* coin’s weight *in grains* compared to the precious metals’ standard unit of measure, the *troy ounce*, is the same ratio or relative proportioning as that between the *cubic inches* in these two *gallon* measures. One way of looking at this is if we divided a single silver dollar coin into **231** equal parts, then a troy ounce of the same silver alloy will divide into **268.8025** such parts. The last equation above shows that the two different measurement systems are perfectly *commensurate* through better than five decimal places.

Earlier it was pointed out that it was in 1836 that the dry gallon was “officially” incorporated into American law. And it was in 1837 that Congress authorized the reduction in the gross weight of the dollar coin from **416** grains to the **412.5** grains (which it remained until the last coin was struck in 1935). Even though the new coins weighed slightly less, the original mandate specifying that each silver dollar contain **371.25** grains pure silver was maintained by adjusting the *standard silver* alloy.

Now history says *nothing* about legislation purposely relating these two gallons, or the gallons and the weight of the coin. But common sense would indicate a strong probability that *these measures were relatedly conceived*, given the timing of the legislation. But better than *probability* is confirmatory *evidence* found in America’s new “fractional” dollar (dimes, quarters, and halves) foisted on the unwitting American public in 1873. Twenty years earlier, in the 1853 Coinage Act, Congress authorized the intentional debasing (reducing the silver content) of the fractional silver coins. In 1873 the weight of these previously debased coins, now weighing **24.88**2… grams per dollar amount, was slightly *increased* to an even **25** grams. This was allegedly done to bring the U.S. coinage system more into line with their European counterparts and their “metric system”. But was this the *only* reason? Have a look at the following equations.

**Roman gal / Dry gal = 216 cu.in. / 268.8025 cu.in. = .803**56395**… / 1.000**

**Wt. fractional $ / Wt. troy oz. = 25 gms / 31.1047… gms = .803**7686**… / 1.000**

**.803**56395**… / .803**7686**… = .999**7453**…**

** ** The above equations show that the *Roman gallon* relates to the *Dry gallon* in the same proportions as the weight of a *fractional dollar* and a *troy ounce*. In fact, a *troy ounce* is **1.244**139… times the weight of **1.0** fractional dollar; and, the *bushel* itself measures **1.244**456… times a base “unit” of **1.0 **cubic foot. And it should be pointed out that between 1853 and 1873 one half-dollar; or, two quarters; or, five dimes weighed **12.44**139…grams.

At the beginning of this chapter I said that the source of this system of dry measures was found in geometry and the relationship between “the unit” as *surface area* and “the unit” as *volume*. But to do this a “name” must be assigned to the *unit* in order to give it *scale*, or *substance*, or some other quality such as *weight*. Regarding their system of dry measures, the *illuminati* chose the “foot” as the computational basis for its division into what became the *Winchester** bushel*. Here is how they contrived these measures.

The fundamental units of *area* and *volume* can be modeled by the same form: **1.0** unit of *volume* in the form of a cube. This cube has six square faces, with each measuring exactly **1.0** *surface* unit. The *illuminati’s *technicians took the *square* **1.0 **surface unit and reformed it into the *surface area* of a sphere. And the cubical* volume* unit they also reformed into the shape of a perfect sphere.

Since *the sphere is geometry’s most economical form* for packaging any given unit of volume (least surface/most volume), the **1.0** *surface* unit sphere encloses the __maximum__*amount of volume* possible: .09403159… “cubic” unit. And for the same reason, the **1.0** *volume* unit in the form of a sphere is enclosed by the very * minimum amount of surface area* allowed by geometry: 4.8359758… “square” units. These are the exact quantities from which our

*dry pint*measure was created. And the

*dry pint*is the fundamental sub-unit of the

*Winchester*

*bushel*. Here is how they did it.

Using the above quantities, the *illuminati *created the *pint-to-bushel* system of measures by *dividing* *the volume of the spherical surface unit *(.094031…) by the quantity defining *the surface of the spherical volume unit* (4.8359…):

**.094031… ***cubic foot*** / 4.8359… = .019444… ***cubic foot*

**and since**

**1.0 ***cubic foot*** = 1728 ***cubic inches*

**therefore**

**.019444… X 1728 ***cubic inches*** = 33.5995… ***cubic inches*

**and**

*One Dry Pint*** = 33.6**003125 *cubic inches*

So, just how closely do the measures created by *man* conform to those derived from the simplest and most fundamental *geometric* proportions?

**33.5995… ***cubic inches*** / 33.6**003125 *cubic inches*** = .9999**7722…

For generations the *illuminati’s* “technicians” knew the significance of a quantity of “**7.0** units”. In the *geometry of form* it is co-equal to **1.0**, and represents the *form* of Unity’s *potential*. Its influence manifests throughout transformational geometry. It is more than just of interest that I point out that **7.0** cubic feet equals **45** *dry gallons*. To be exact, **7.0** cubic feet equals **44.999**581… dry gallons. But these are the *same measures* to a .**99999**0700… degree of “fineness”.

Another measure of volume is the “cord”, and “cord foot”. It is still used today, most popularly as a measure of timber, or especially firewood. A cord measures 4 feet, by 4 feet, by 8 feet (**128** cubic feet). There are **8** “cord feet” in one cord, so a *cord foot* measures **16** cubic feet. These were important measures in our recent past, especially when most of the population was involved with agriculture to some degree or another. Then, both the *Winchester** bushel *and the *cord* were in far more use than today. These were used in conjunction with the *avoirdupois ounce*, which itself was decreed the legal unit of *weight* measure for merchants at *about the same time* that the *cord* and *bushel* became measures of the realm. So when we find that **7.000 **cubic feet measures exactly .**4375** cord foot; i.e., a .**4375** portion of **16** cubic feet . . . , then WE know that *the illuminous technicians knew of this relationship*. How do we know this? Look:

**7.000 ***cu.ft***. = .4375 ***cord. ft***. X 16**

**and**

**7000 ***grains*** = 437.5 ***grains*** X 16 **

** **** **Of course **7000** grains is **1.0 **pound *avoirdupois*. This *pound* is just like your *pound* of hamburger in the supermarket. And just like every “pound” today (excluding *troy*) it consists of **16** ounces, with each ounce containing **437.5** grains. So we can see as plain as day, that the “cord” *volume* measure and the “pound” *weight* measure share in the exact same mathematical structuring. Only the *names* have been changed, and the *powers* of the different quantities.

On the backdrop of the above relationships we will now look once more at the *dry* *pint* measure:

**7.000 ***cu. ft***. / 360 = .019444**4444… *cu.ft***. = 33.6 ***cu. in***.**

**and**

**1.0 ***dry pint*** = 33.6**003125 *cu. in***.**

** **Again, *the measures of man* and *the measures derived from pure geometry* are the same to a **.99999**0700… degree of perfection.

When I encountered the above relationships, I was reminded of **7**’s role with **360** in forming what, in the *Geometry* *of* *Form* is called “the lowest common denominator of unity”. Without going into detail here, this quantity is 2520 and is the product of **7** *times* **360**. In the equations immediately above, we saw how these two quantities *divided* to create the *dry pint* measure *in* *cubic* *inches*; and that **64** together creates **1.0 **bushel. So by now when we see that **7.0 ***lineal inches* times **360** equals **64 ***meters* (yes, metric) to a fineness of **.9998**75… we see once again man’s measures in sync with geometry’s.

Now, it has been obvious throughout this manuscript (*The Geometry of Money*) that the *illuminati* used the “geometry of form” as a template for *a single system of weights and measures* for the entire planet. Even more importantly, the “geometry of form” is literally *Nature’s* geometry, and actually reveals the process by which *our* universe (the *only* “universe”) came into existence from *nothing*. That is one of the reasons it is not taught, why it has been “occulted” and hidden from humanity for at least a thousand years or more.

Nature quanta-sizes its constructs in geometric units. Ultimately, when *geometry* is traced back to *the* *Beginning*, we find a specific “form” which gives rise to all of *these* quantities as it progresses through a series of transformations. This is the subject of another book in progress. But now, for purposes at hand, the following examples regarding this system of dry measures and its relationship to “natural” units should be noted here and for future reference:

One Dry Gallon of *pure silver* weighs **1485**.95… troy ounces. Each Dry Quart of *pure silver *must therefore weigh **371.3**952… troy ounces. The Coinage Act of 1792 specified there be precisely **371.25 ***grains *of pure silver in every dollar coin; and that ** 1485** *grains* of pure silver be alloyed with 179 *grains* pure copper to formulate what this Act designates as “standard silver”. To geometry, all of these quantities are structural units derived from the same measuring rod. They are born from *formal* transformations of “the unit” and the relationships arising as a consequence. They manifest in *nature*, since ultimately, *nature* itself is a *geometric* construct subject to the rules of *geometry*.

The *dry gallon* is built from its sub-unit *dry* *pint*, which has been shown earlier in this chapter to have been derived from geometry’s fundamental units of *surface* *area* and *volume*. These were assigned a name; “**1.0** square foot” and “**1.0** cubic foot”. Now, let’s look at some of the *quantitative properties* of **1.0** cubic foot of pure silver.

For starters, a cubic foot of pure silver weighs 4,584,000.49 *grains*. The **371.25** grain pure silver content of America’s dollar coin is 90% of its **412.5** grain gross weight; 90% of 4,584,000.49 grains is **4,125**,600 grains. There is also 297,043.24 *grams* in **1.0** cubic foot of pure silver. When it is divided into its **8.00** *Roman gallon* sub-units, each must weigh **37,13**0.4…*grams*. This means that if it is further sub-divided into **100** cubets, each cubet must weigh **371.3**04 *grams*. Of course, this leads to the inevitable conclusion that **1.0** cubic foot of pure silver renders into **800** cubets, each weighing **371.30**… grams.

But the actual geometry producing the dry measures base unit, the *dry pint*, employs the **1.0** *volume* unit in its *spherical* form. Calculate the smallest cube within which this spherical unit of silver may be contained. The diameter of a **1.0** cubic foot sphere is 1.24070098… which is the *edgelength* of the smallest cube capable of embracing it. Convert this edgelength to inches and calculate the volume of the cube in inches. It is **3,300**.236… cubic inches, and as pure silver weighs **1250** *pounds* (this is to a accuracy of **99.9**%). This cube’s volume can also be expressed as **8.00** times **412.5**29612… cubic inches. And a cube of pure silver this size weighs **2300**.1660… apothecaries’ ounces; or **2501**.42403… avoirdupois ounces. An “even” **412.5** cubic inches weighs (an almost even) **2300.000**97… apothecaries ounces; or, 250**1.2444**… avoirdupois ounces. And **1.2444** times **1.0** cubic foot equals **1.0** *Winchester* *bushel* measure.

There is one more sphere we should look at. It is the largest sphere *within* a cube having a volume of *one cubic foot*. Since the cube’s edge measures **1.0** foot so does the sphere’s diameter. This sphere’s volume is .523598…, or /6 cubic foot. If made of pure silver it has a “nominal” weight of **5000**… *troy* *ounces*, or **2,400,000** *grains*. These “nominal” weights correspond to the “actual” weights to a **99.99**% approach to perfection! There is a *principle* at work, recognized in *The Geometry of Form*, and called “The Actual and the Ideal”. The last several paragraphs demonstrate clearly that this *principle* of geometry is present in *nature’s* compositions as well.
