All of us have looked at and held paper money such as our present Federal Reserve “notes”. But how many people have wondered about the *measurements* used to create those bills? Why did the money architects use *those* proportions and not some *others*? Is there something hidden in the dimensions of these paper *substitutes* for what was, at least in the beginning, intrinsic values of gold and silver?

That the answer to this question is “yes” shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to readers of the previous chapters. They have unveiled in some detail a system of geometry underlying the choices for the weights and measures of the U.S. gold and silver coinage. And again, like with the coinage, there is *no mention of this geometry* in any historic or contemporary sources regarding the paper “money”.

When I began to look into the paper currency the first thing that caught my attention was the strange choice of measures for the length and width of our present bills:

**6.14” X 2.61”**

** ** I’m sure that most builders and designers would agree, that in a nation with the “inch measure” as its basic unit of measure from it’s beginning to this day, it *is* a bit odd. It would seem that, with all other agendas aside, 6.125” X 2.625” makes more sense since the “inch” is inherently divided into *halves*, *quarters*, and *eighths*:

**6 1/8” X 2 5/8”**

** **A bill this size would be practically indistinguishable from the actual bills since both pairs of measures correspond to each other to an accuracy of better than 99%. Moreover, the *perimeter* of this hypothetical bill *is identical to the actual bill’s perimeter*:

**2(6.14” + 2.61”) = 17.5”**

and

**2(6 1/8” + 2 5/8”) = 17.5”**

Dividing 17.5” into 6.14” and 2.61” increments is certainly an obvious incongruity. But by now we know it had to have been done for a reason, and for this reason we have to look to the size of the notes prior to 1929. That’s when our current paper notes evolved to their present size.

** **Beginning in 1864, with the first United States *legal tender* notes, through 1928 the size of the finished note was *approximately* 7.4218” X 3.125”; or 189mm X 79mm. Most sources agree on the 3.125” width dimension but the actual length is slightly ambiguous. A good example of this is the figures given above *which came from the same source*. When the 189mm is converted to inches the measure is 7.44094…” which is slightly longer than 7.4218”. The one thing we know for certain is that it can’t be both measures; and in actuality, it may be *neither*.

** **Assuming the width dimension of 3.125” is accurate, and having learned that these bills were printed 32 per sheet (4 lengths X 8 widths) means that one side of the sheet measures exactly 25” (8 X 3.125”). But what does the other side measure if it is 4 X the length?

Let’s think like the illuminati’s coinage architects. The true length is somewhere between 7.4218”, the measure most often cited, and 7.44094…”, which is the greatest deviation that I’ve found. The division from one-into-two plays prominent in the geometry of their coinage, so if we divide these lengths by two perhaps we can deduce the actual intended measure:

** ****7.4218” / 2 = 3.7109”**

**7.44094” / 2 = 3.72047”**

Eureka! The measure for each half-length resides somewhere between 3.71 and 3.72 inches. And since **3.7125**” literally *enshrines in measure* the **371.25** *grains* of pure silver defining the dollar coin, it is certainly a worthy candidate for further investigation.

** **If the length of one of these large bills really *is* (**3.7125**” X 2), it becomes 7.425”. Four of these lengths total 29.7 inches. This means that the sheet of paper on which 32 of these bills were printed measured 29.7” X 25”. This is quite astounding since simple calculation again reveals the powerful occult geometry at the heart of its proportions:

**29.7” X 25” = 742.5 square inches**

**and**

**742.5 square inches / 2 = 371.25 square inches**

** **Additionally, in geometry’s third dimensional accounting system, a cube comprised of 2,970 *grains* pure silver contains eight sub-cubes of **371.25** *grains* each.

** **This is pretty in credible. It appears that they *purposely* designed the proportions of this “large note” paper-money to be a facsimile of the actual coins, the *true* money. They made both the length of the bill (2 X **3.7125**”), and the area of the bill (**371.25** sq.” / 16) shout out *the numeric equivalent* of the pure silver content within, what was and still is, *an honest “dollar”* (coin). And the 742.5 square inches comprising the full print sheet is mirrored in the 7.425” individual bill length. Once again we have to ask *why* this is not taught in schools, at least *as an interesting and colorful aspect *of our nation’s history and monetary system. The answer is probably that *they* want it kept secret.

** **From 1834 until 1933 one *grain* of gold was equal to 16 *grains* of silver. The 16:1 ratio was unwavering for over 99 years. This relationship between gold and silver is as boldly expressed in this large bill’s proportions, as is its concealment beneath occult vales and secrecy. As was just demonstrated, every 16 bills measures **371.25** sq. inches and represents the number of pure silver grains in the dollar coin. And each individual bill, with a measure of **23.20**3125 square inches, represents the number of pure gold grains in the dollar (*gold*) coin. In 1834 the ten dollar gold Eagle was reduced from **247.5** grains pure to **232.0** grains. Later in 1837 it was slightly raised to **232.2** grains at which it remained. 232.0 grains is slightly over 16:1 (16.002…) and 232.2 slightly under (15.988…). A perfect 16:1 ratio is **232.03125** grains. And *this is the same number patterning the area of the bill in square inches*.

** **As we will see next, this number also leads back to the **412.5** grains *gross weight* of the silver dollar coin, and the 6.14” length measure of the later (and still current) “small” notes. The sketch below shows how these *coin-weight quantities and measures* are built into geometry. They all come together in the same simple geometric transformations that we’ve seen throughout the evolution of the *coinage* system. The **412.5** grains, in the form of a regular *tetrahedron*, has the same *edge-length-sum* as a *cube* containing **437.5**223… grains (which is *one avoirdupois ounce)*. Divide this cube’s volume in half, and again repackage it the form of a regular tetrahedron. The cube, with an *edge-length-sum* equal to this tetrahedron’s *edge-length-sum*, has a volume of **232.0**3125 grains. And the edge of this cube measures 6.14490… which *mirrors the length of the small notes in inches*. (Again, readers of the previous essays will recognize this geometric transformation sequence as a familiar template governing the quantitative relationships among the various coinage quantities.)

**Occult Measures in Paper Money**

**Found in the Paper Itself**

** **** **When the proportions of these first large size (legal tender) notes were designed it is obvious the intent was to convey to them the same magical properties and powers *they believe* their geometry had imbued to their coinage system. When the size of these notes was reduced in 1929 the intent was again to convey this perceived power into the new bills. Here are some of the mechanisms by which this was accomplished.

** **Most research sources tell us that the paper composition used in today’s bills is essentially unchanged from its inception back in the 1860’s. This paper isn’t really “paper” since it is comprised of 72.3% *cotton* and 27.7% *linen*. Once again, this appears to be a strange choice of quantities . . . until we do a few simple calculations:

**72.3% / 27.7% = 2.61**010**… / 1.00**

** **** **This shows that for every **2.61** parts *cotton* there is 1.00 part *linen*. We can also see that this **2.61** proportional quantity, chosen in 1862, became in 1929 *the width measure in inches of the new small notes. *

** **A closer inspection of some relevant historic events reveals an even deeper mystery involving the paper’s composition. In 1853, the “money agents” persuaded Congress to *reduce* the pure silver content of the fractional silver coins (half-dollars, quarters, and dimes). In was lowered from 0.7734375 to 0.72 troy ounce. It remained this weight until 1873 when again it was argued for change. This time it was *raised* ever so slightly to 0.**723**391798… *troy* *ounce* (22.5 grams) and remained that weight until the last silver coin was struck in 1964. This was the money architects targeted weight in the first place, since *this* quantity of pure silver *as a cube *has the same “face value” (i.e. surface area) as a whole *troy* *ounce* of pure silver in the form of a *sphere*.

** **Now the first legal tender “paper” note issued in 1864 came on the heels of the money architects *failure* in 1853 to *steer* Congress into approving their “proper” *reduced* weight quantity. Undaunted, they enshrined this quantity anyway *in the composition of the paper* for their new notes when they specified **72.3**% of the fibers would be cotton. It took them nine more years to do it, but in 1873 they succeeded, and forever there after an American *fractional* dollar contained **72.3**% of one troy ounce pure silver. Finally in 1929, as is mentioned above, this quantity appears again veiled in *occulted equivalency* as the 2.61 inch width measure of that bill presently in your purse or pocket.

**More Evidence Confirming**

**Occult Measures in Paper Money**

** **** **Another artifact from that 1860’s designed bill was melded into the length measure of the new small bills. The large bills length is 7.000 inches, plus a quantity of 0.425 inch. This 0.425 quantity is carried forward into the new small bill and is clearly seen in its width to length ratio:

**2.61” / 6.14” = 0.425**081**… / 1.000**

** **** **This is showing that if the length of the current small bills is considered as 1.000 unit, its width by comparison is 0.425 of that unit. All of this is *present day evidence* giving strength to the previously deduced assertion that the *intended* or *designed* length measure of the old bills is indeed 7.**425**”.

And this evidence continues to build. Compare the length of four old large bills to that of 5 new small bills:

**4 X 7.425” = 29.7”**

**5 X 6.14 ” = 30.7”**

** **In the light of what has preceded, this can hardly be a coincidence: the 5 new small bills are *exactly* 1.0” longer than the 4 old large bills.

** **There is something else noteworthy about this 29.7” quantity besides it being eight times **3.7125**”. Since there is **371.25** grains of pure silver in every dollar coin there will be __exactly__ 29.7 *avoirdupois* ounces of pure silver in every stack of 35 one-dollar coins. And remember, the sum of the perimeters of two small size bills is also 35 *inches*.

**(35 X 371.25 grains) / 437.5 grains (or 1 Av. Oz.) = 29.7**

**Comparing the Areas of the**

**Large and Small Bills **

** ** The surface area of the large bill is 23.203125 square inches; the small bill’s surface measures 16.0254 square inches. They compare as:

** ****23.203125 / 16.0254 = 1.4478967… / 1.000 = 2(0.723948…) / 1.000**

** **This is saying that if the area of the small bill were regarded as 1.000 unit of surface, then the area of the large bill will equal twice the quantity 0.**723**948…

** **These quantities can be modeled in the following way: let the small bill’s area of 1.000 unit represent *one troy ounce* of pure silver; the two (0.**723**948…) units of the large bill’s area each represent the pure silver content contained in *one fractional dollar* in silver coin. This is to a better than **99.9**% accuracy:

** ****fractional $ silver / one troy oz. = 0.723391… **

**and**

**0.723391… / 0.723948… = .****999****231…**

** **And here again, in this 0.**723**948… quantity is the specter of the **72.3**% cotton content within the currency’s paper.

** **There is *a very significant “artifact”* in the small note’s area quantity that deserves highlighting. The bills in current circulation measure 16.0**254** square inches. This can equally be expressed as “**16** inches” *plus* “**one** **39.37007874**^{th}” of **1.0** square inch. This number **39.37007874** *exact*, is the number of inches in one international *meter!*

** **Now this isn’t the first time that the technocrats (working among the monetary architects) slipped

*metric measures*into the foundations of American life. This was

*unbeknownst*, for the most part, to the American people themselves. These new small bills in 1929, with their

*explicit*and

*exact*increment of

*metric*

*measure*, were preceded by the 1873 Coinage Act which raised the fractional dollar’s silver content from 345.6 grains (22.3945… grams) to an

__exact__22.5*grams*(347.2280… grains). Remember, the United States

*was NOT on the metric system!*And since the pure silver content is 90% the coins weight, the gross weight of the American fractional dollar became

*exactly*

**25**

*. The practical (and symbolic) implications of this are immense.*

__grams__** **This is because after 1873 the American silver dimes, quarters, and half-dollars became perfect standards for measuring weight. The only *problem* was that it was in *metric* accounting, and the American people were accounting in* grains*, not* grams*! If the United States had been using *grams*, then it would all make sense. Why? Because any combination of *fractional* *silver* *coins* totaling one dollar weighs **25** *grams*; four dollars weighs **100** *grams*; and, forty dollars in silver “change” weighs **1.0** *kilogram*, exact! I don’t think this feature was widely touted at the time; nor any time thereafter, that I am aware. Why not?

** **** **

**How Thick is a Paper Note?**

** **** **The government’s *Bureau of Engraving and Printing* lists the thickness of a paper note at 0.0043”. Again, one must ask *why*? In light of everything we’ve thus far discovered about the geometry of paper money, I am suggesting that the *exact* number, or *designed* number, is really:

**.00425”**

** **** **Of course, .00425” rounds off to .0043”. This is the figure they would *have to use* if their working tolerance was as fine as a 10,000^{th} inch. And like the other dimensions of 6.14” and 2.61”, it is now consistent by being expressed in two numbers after the decimal point rather than three.

This .00425” thickness is obviously *a power* of the same quantity embodied within the two different sized bills as well: the ratio of the small bill’s width to length (2.61” / 6.14” = 0.425…); and the quantity over 7 inches (0.425”), which as 7.425” is the length of a large bill. It is this quantity that allows the edge of this bill to measure 2 X 3.7125”, *enshrining the silver content of the dollar coin*.

** **

**Modeling the Length Change**

**From Large to Small Notes**

** **** **In 1929 the familiar “large note” paper currency, which had been first introduced in 1864, was replaced with our current size “small note” paper currency.

The length of the note was reduced from 7.425 inches to 6.14 inches.

** ****6.14 / 7.425 = 0.826**93602**… / 1.0**

** **** **When the number 0.8269360… is re-written as {(2) X (0.4134680…)} a fundamental structural quantity appears which is at the very heart of the Geometry of Form. This quantity (0.4134680…) represents the *surface* *area* of a *transit-tetrahedron*, the form that accounts for *surface* and *volume* “differences” whenever a unit of *volume* divides its *surface* or *volume* into two new units *identical* in form to the original “unit”.

** **The transit-tetrahedrons usually appear in pairs. Here is a simple example of their function in transformational geometry. Imagine starting with 1.0 unit of *surface *in the form of a cube. When this surface unit transforms by dividing into two new cubes (surfaces) the *volume* contained in the original cube will be greater than the sum of the *volumes* contained in the two new cubes. When geometry packages this “excess volume” in the form of two tetrahedrons, the surface area of each will measure 0.4139742… units. Since the surface area of each of the two new cubes is 0.5 unit, the total surface area of

the now four forms at the end of this transformation is {(0.5) + (0.5) + (0.413…) + (0.413…)}. This principle applies universally to any 3-D *surface* unit dividing one-into-two *regardless of shape*, and is illustrated in the simple graphic above.

** **Now if we regard the original *large* bill as having a length equal to {(2) X (0.50 unit)}, then the length of the new *smaller* bill is {(2) X (0.413…)} units**. **

As we’ve just seen, all four of these units, both of these *pairs*, occur together in geometric transformations whenever a (3-dimentional) surface unit divides into two new units identical in form to the original’s.

### **A Possible Source for the**

**Length Measure Ambiguity **

** **** **Another way of comparing the *areas* of these bills is to see how much bigger in square inches the large bill is over the small bill:

** ****23.203125 ****― 16.0254 = 7.177725**

**and**

**8 X 7.177725 = 5 7.4218**

A large bill has 7.177725 square inches more than a small bill. And every **8** large bills have **50** square inches *plus* 7.4218 square inches more area than **8** small bills.

** **This **7.4218** is the number of inches most often cited for the *length* of a large note. As just demonstrated, it certainly is a quantity *inherent* to the geometric relations between the large and small notes but it arises *as a consequence* of the large note’s edge being **7.425**”, which we know is a reflection of the dollar’s silver content (2 X **3.7125**”).

** **In an earlier chapter exploring a “gram-based” measure system, it was shown that **50** square units, configured as the surface of a single cube, is directly related to the dollar coin’s pure silver content of **371.25** grains. This is because this cube’s volume is 24.05626… and as “grams” contains **371.24**48… “grains”.

** ****The Silver Dollar’s Diameter;**

**The Length of the Old Notes; and**

**Prime Coinage Weights**

** **** **About 25 years before the appearance of the old notes measuring **7.425 **inches in length, the silver dollar coin’s diameter had been standardized at **1.5** inches. When these measures are compared to one another we can easily distill the higher levels of occult measures.

**7.425” / 1.5” = 4.95**

** **The above equation can be re-written as:

** ****(3.7125” + 3.7125”) / 1.5” = 2.475” X 2; or, 4.125’ / 10**

** ****371.25 grains pure silver in dollar coin**

**412.5 grains gross weight dollar coin**

**247.5 grains pure gold in 10 dollar “eagle”**

** **** **In this way the prime coinage quantities are revealed, just as the *designers* of this system had intended. But this view was *only* for those amongst *their* confidants, and it was never their intent that it be exposed to you (the reader of this essay).

# **The Dollar and the Gallon**

** **The “gallon” is a unit of volume. It was formally defined as 231 *cubic inches* ever since 1706 when it was codified into English law. It was described as a volume measuring **3**” X **7**” X **11**”.

As a geometric unit of volume, it is easily modeled as a cube having an edge length equal to 6.135792439 . . . inches. This measure corresponds to the same 6.14” measure purposely chosen for the length of U.S. paper notes (dollars) ever since 1929. These measures are *identical* to better than **99.9**%:

** ****6.135792439 . . . / 6.14 = .****999**** 3 . . .**

** ** So again, it is just like the *silver dollar’s* gross weight of **412.5** grains being a geometric equivalent to another fundamental base unit of common weight measurement. In a previous section, it was demonstrated that **412.5** grains in the form of a regular *tetrahedron* would have the sum of its six edges equal in length to the sum of the twelve edges of a *cube* containing *one avoirdupois ounce* of **437.5** grains. *Both forms can be made from the exact same line*. The correspondence between these two forms in this case is to better than **99.99**%. Thus we can clearly see that *the paper dollar is designed to the “gallon”* unit just as *the silver dollar is designed to the “ounce”* unit.

And remember, since the silver dollar coin is *exactly* 1.5” in diameter, and the 1-cent coin *exactly* .75”, they can be used to layout measures of length based on the inch. And if you need a perfect *one troy ounce* weight of 480 *grains*, you can use **10** pre-1982 *copper* pennies. **10** pennies after 1982 weigh exactly **25** *grams*. This makes $**4.00** of these *new *cents weigh exactly **1.0** *kilogram*. $**40.00** in our old *fractional* *silver* coinage *also* weighs exactly **1.0** *kilogram*; and $20.00 dollars in *fractional* *imitation*–*silver* coins (nickel clad copper, post 1964) weighs exactly **1.0*** avoirdupois pound*. This makes every $1.25 in dimes, quarters and halves equal to **1.0*** avoirdupois ounce*. This all should be common knowledge taught in our schools.

** ****The Gallon Unit and a Sheet of Common Paper**

** **** **Aside from toilet paper, the “paper” dollar bill is probably the most frequent *standardized* size piece of paper that the average American encounters on a daily basis. In all probability, its closest rival is the A size 8½” X 11” *letter* or *copy* paper. It too is a natural delineation of the gallon unit. Simply fold it into a ninety-degree angle, length-wise, at a point 7” from the edge. That’s it! Now the folded sheet of typing paper is a template for a perfect gallon unit. In the photo below two of these sheets are joined together. The space within the confines of the two sheets of paper measures 231 cubic inches. i.e. one “gallon”.
