Almost a year before I discovered that the avenues leading off from the Whitehouse were at the angle of 23.5º, and that there also existed an avenue which gave reference to the Great Pyramid of Giza . . . I had drawn up the diagram below.

Again, the four sloping side angles of the Great Pyramid of Giza are 51.84º in degrees and 51º 51' in arc minutes.

‘The Tree of Life of the Kabbalah has been theorized to have possibly been derived from Assyrian theology and mysticism. Dr. Simo Parpola, a researcher at the University of Helsinki, has made some suggestive findings on the matter, particularly concerning an analysis of the Sepiroth. Noting the general similarity between the Sepiroth of the Kabbalah and the Tree of Life of Assyria, he reconstructed what an Assyrian antecedent to the Sepiroth would look like. He matched the characteristics of the Sepiroth to the gods of Assyria, and was able to demonstrate textual parallels between these Assyrian gods and the characteristics of the Hebrew god. The Assyrians assigned specific numbers to their gods, similar to how the Sepiroth are assigned numbers. However, the Assyrians use a sexagesimal number system, whereas the Sepiroth is decimal. With the Assyrian numbers, additional layers of meaning and mystical relevance appear in the Sepiroth. Normally, floating above the Assyrian Tree of Life was the god Assur, this corresponds to En Sof, which is also, via a series of transformations, derived from the Assyrian word Assur. Furthermore, Dr. Parpola was able to re-interpret various Assyrian tablets in the terms of this primitive Sepiroth, such as the Epic Of Gilgamesh, and in doing so was able to reveal that the scribes themselves had been writing philosophical-mystical tracts, rather than mere adventure stories. Traces of this Assyrian mode of thought and philosophy eventually makes reappearances in Greek Philosophy and the Kabbalah’.

Pitfalls of Jewish Mysticism compiled by Elisheva Gamliel (2005).

The Tree of Life of the Qabbalah is also said to be ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ – the ladder on which angels were observed to be ascending and descending in Jacob’s dream. 

Jacob is said to have rested his head on a stone pillow (pillar) – being the same stone (‘foundation stone’ and ‘stone of the philosophers’) that fell to Earth from heaven and through all nine levels.

Again, the ten Sephiroth (spheres) are levels of consciousness – much like the Hindu chakras of which there are usually seven, but also eight, nine, ten even sixteen in some systems. These levels are also the ‘Seven Governors’ as mentioned in the Hermetica.

We find that the Jefferson Memorial corresponds with the lowest level known as Malkuth otherwise known as ‘the Kingdom’ and associated with the material plane of the Earth and the initiate. 
In the Hindu Chakra system this is the Muladhara Root Chakra at the base of the spine.

The Washington Monument -an obelisk - corresponds with the sephirah Yesod (YSVD)– otherwise known as ‘the foundation’.
Svd or sod, is a Hebrew word meaning “secret”.

In the Hindu Chakra system we find that Yesod corresponds with the second Swadhisthana or Sacral Chakra, aligned with the sexual organs - hence the male phallic symbolism of the Washington Monument.

One would perhaps ask, why is only the male sexual organ being referenced by the obelisk, pillar in this design?

The fact is, that BOTH the male and female sexual organs are being symbolically referenced and both in sexual union, as is clearly seen by the aerial image of the Washington Monument below on the right which is standing centrally within the oval of the Vesica Piscis - a symbol used within Freemasonry.

Figure 10: The Washington Monument, phallus standing on, or rather symbolically "piercing" the centre of the ancient Egyptian oval Ru hieroglyph - the central oval of the Vesica Piscis symbol, which symbolises the female vagina.

The symbolism here is both simple and complex and requires some elucidation:

The Christian symbol of the fish is otherwise known as the ‘Mandorla’, referring to the bladder of the fish resembling an almond.

This symbol is also known as the Icthys, from the Koine Greek: iχθύς, (capitalised ΙΧΘΥΣ or ΙΧΘΥC) meaning “fish”. (See here.)

The Mandorla is the central oval created from the half-superimposition of two circles, known as the Vesica Piscis.

The Vesica Piscis symbol represents a state of perfect equilibrium between two equal and opposite forces and the union of these two forces.

The two circles can be used to symbolise any manifestation of opposites, as in positive and negative, black and white, good and evil, day and night, mind and matter, male and female, conscious and subconscious, waking consciousness and sleeping consciousness and so on.

Emphasis is always on the oval in the centre where both opposites are superimposed, cancelled out, neutralised – this being the “grey area”.

The central location of the White House corresponds with Tiphereth, which is given the attribute of ‘Beauty’. In the Hindu Chakra system this corresponds with both the Anahata Heart chakra and the Manipura 'solar plexus' chakra, "considered the centre of dynamism, energy, willpower and achievement which radiates the prana energy throughout the entire human body [. . .] It is associated with the power of fire [. . .] Through meditating on Manipura, one is said to attain the siddhi, or occult power, to create, destroy or save the world". See here:

The Apex of the Tree and the Pyramid is where we find Kether – the highest level known as ‘the Father’ and the ‘Supreme Crown’, which corresponds with the Hindu ‘Crown Chakra’, the Sahasrara.

Again, the apex represents the Source-Center of creation – the zero-point. 

There is nothing on the map of any significance at this location . . . zero. 

However, like the All-Seeing Eye positioned within the centre of the radiant, floating capstone on the US One Dollar bill,  only three blocks down from the apex we find the 'House of the Temple’ – the Headquarters of of the Supreme Council, 33° Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

The House of the Temple is at No. 1733, 16th Street. Again, as we now know, 16th Street marks the former Zero Meridian.

Richard Paschal, a correspondent of mine who once lived on 16th Street, informed me that the House of the Temple address is not the original address but was changed to 1733 to incorporate the number 33.

"On 16th street, one also finds the home of the Scottish Rite Temple and several esoteric churches and monuments".

Priory of Sion: the Facts, the Theories, the Mystery by Dr. Steven E. Mizrachs.

We should perhaps note the fact that there are 33 vertebrae in the human spinal column, and that it has been suggested that this is the real meaning behind the Masonic hierarchy of 'Degrees'; that these degrees or levels are related to the levels of the spine and the chakra energy points - the highest level reached when one becomes a 33rd degree Mason.

"The city was founded in 1790. Congress held its first session in DC in November 1800. The Scottish Rite had its headquarters in Charleston, SC, when it was established in May 1801, and there it remained until 1870, when the headquarters moved to DC. 
The Supreme Council met at several locations until the House of the Temple was constructed, a process which lasted from 1911 to 1915, a full century after DC was laid out; DC was clearly not designed around the House of the Temple".

“Cyril of Alexandria, writing in the early 5th century AD, was a church man enlightened enough to recognise the wisdom of the ancient Mystery Schools. Two surviving fragments of his writings deal with the appreciation of the Egyptian Mysteries: one is entilted 'The Incorporeal Eye' and the other, 'The Pyramid':”

The Secret Zodiacs of Washington DC: Was the City of Stars Planned by Masons?
by David Ovason, (Arrow Books, 2000) p. 288.

It is worth quoting these fragments by Cyril of Alexandria, as his words seem to have been influential as regards the combined Masonic eye and pyramid symbolism.

“If there be an incorporeal eye, let it go forth from the body unto the Vision of the Beautiful. Let it fly up and soar aloft, seeking to see neither form, nor body (nor even the types of such things), but rather That which is the Maker of these things . . .”

Cyril of Alexandria, The Incorporeal Eye. Fragment xi

“The Pyramid, then, is below Nature and the Intellectual World. This is because it has above it, as ruler, the Creator-Word of the Lord of all . . .”

Cyril of Alexandria, The Incorporeal Eye. Fragment xiii, The Pyramid.
See also G.R. S. Mead, Thrice-Greatest Hermes, 1964 version of the 1906 ed., vol. Iii, pp. 163-164.

Within the context of this pyramid design of seven levels, the House of the Temple appears to have a more ascended position than that of the White House. 

What does this tell us? 

Are we being told that the Masons are the real power behind the "throne"?
Is this just more "Freemasonry fantasy"? . . more "New Age clap-trap"?

Viewing the image above, I can see why most people would dismiss it all as such, but for those who have digested everything in the previous presentations and can now see the symbolic 'how' and 'why' of this plan which encapsulates various esoteric systems based on ancient spiritual principles, wisdom and knowledge, I can only leave it to the reader to decide . . .

Supporting evidence for the above are the plans for London presented by Christopher Wren and John Evelyn after most of London was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. However, the final plan was less esoteric because it was compromised by existing structures and land rights. Both Wren and Evelyn were members of the Royal Society and both were Freemasons.

In the original drawings both architects present an octagonal, eight-sided design surrounding the Temple Church - the octagon being a symbol of the Knights Templar and specifically the Temple of Solomon. (Again, the Templars were a creation of the Illuminati and it should be noted that Solomon was the first unnofficial Grandmaster of the secret esoteric Order or society that would later become the Illuminati).

"Interesting, too, that by comparing Evelyn's obviously `Sephirothic' plan with the actual geometry of a Sephirothic Tree of Life, it can be seen that St Paul's Cathedral corresponds to the Sephirah - divine emanation - known as Tipheret, which means 'Beauty'. Astrologically this Sephirah represents the Sun, the centre of the universe, from which emanates all life and light. The analogy is obvious. St Paul's was to be the spiritual centre of the regenerated city as it rose from the ashes like a solar phoenix to guide the restored Stuart monarchy on the true path of the reformed Christianity.
Corresponding to the large Templar' octagon in Evelyn's plan is the Sephirah known as Yesod, which means Foundation'. Could this mean that the new world order which was to emerge from the New Jerusalem' had its foundations in the Order of the Temple or, more precisely, the new Masonic Order which had emerged from Templar ideologies and to which the Stuart monarch had given his royal protection?"

Talisman : Sacred Cities, Secret Faith by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval, (Michael Joseph Ltd, 2004).

The twenty-two paths of the Sephirothic Tree, (the same number of the letters in the Hebrew alphabet and also the Major Arcana or trump cards in the Tarot), plus the ten Sephiroth 'emanations', amount to the number thirty-two. In Scottish Freemasonry this number represents the thirty-two 'degrees' ('pathways' that must be followed), in order to reach the highest level of full Masonic enlightenment — the thirty-third degree.
