Introduction to Carl Munck's Code Number System.

by Michael Lawrence Morton

Michael Lawrence Morton graduated from Franklin and Marshall College

(Lancaster, Pennsylvania) in 1973 with a B.A. degree in English Literature.

He is an independent researcher into lost and suppressed human history

and culture. He is an archeocryptographer and an alpha-numerologist.

Here are some basics you'll need to understand, in order to delve into archeocryptography.

Please feel free to ask questions whenever you need to !!

We'll start with the basic equations:

Pi, RADIAN, and 360

(RADIAN deg) x 2Pi = 360

This has to do with circle/sphere math. And circle/sphere math is the basis for geometry .... and Sacred Geometry.

RADIAN deg is the arc-distance, on a circumference, that is equal (as close as possible) to the radius distance of the same circle or sphere. In arc- degrees, that is 57.29577951 .... to eight decimal places. This is a constant, and it is an irrational number that 'goes on forever' in decimal places.

Pi is the ratio of circumference-to-diameter, of any circle or sphere. It is also a constant, and an irrational number that "goes on forever" in decimal places. It is 3.141592654 .... to nine decimal places. 360 is the so-called "conventional" number of equal segments on a circumference, of a circle or sphere. (We are finding out that this number  is not *really* so 'arbitrary').

So; there are "double-Pi RADIANS" on a circumference .... as shown by the above equation. This assumes the "convention" of 360 arc-degrees on a circumference. And, that equation also shows what a RADIAN is, in terms of 'degrees of arc' (degrees of curvature) .... RADIAN deg = 360 / 2Pi

Base 10

Base 10 is encoded throughout this re-discovered matrix from very deep antiquity, and we're still using base 10 today, of course.  Just move the decimal point to the right or the left !! These are called  "decimal harmonics" ..... like 2160 is a 'decimal harmonic'  of 21600. (Same digits in same order .... just move the decimal point).

The word "decimal" refers to base 10.

'The Face' Shows It

'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars 'shows it' .... it 'shows' *all four* of the above terms ....encoded in its Grid Point Value. Carl P. Munck figured out its Grid Point Value in the very early 1990s with help from Erol O. Torun,

The big key to figuring out the numbers for  'The Face' was Munck's idea that a Martian prime meridian runs through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' .... just like his discovery that the Earth prime meridian runs through the center of The Great Pyramid at Giza. The numbers prove this .... redundantly. When I say "the numbers prove this" ... I mean the precise latitudes and longitudes of hundreds of mounds, pyramids, stone circles, earthen effigies, and monuments all over Earth ... in terms of their *exact* locations. It all "fits" into an elegant matrix of arithmetic .... "our own" arithmetic.

In review ... I said 'The Face' at Cydonia "shows it". Shows what ? It shows "all four terms", above. What terms ? These four terms : Pi .... RADIAN deg .... 360 .... 10

Grid Point Value of 'The Face'

The Grid Point Value of 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars, as determined by Carl P. Munck : 656.56127

Now .... here's an equation I discovered : 656.56127 = (360 x RADIAN deg) / (10 x Pi)

On the right side of the equation, you see "all four terms", above. Here's another look at it :

656.56127 = (360 x 57.29577951) / (10 x 3.141592654)

= 20626.48062 / 31.41592654

= 656.56127

So; 'The Face' is telling us (communicating) that it knows its math !!! To me, that spells ...... " i n t e l l i g e n c e ". No question about it.  'The Face' even knows "our" conventions of 360 arc-degrees on a circumference, and base ten. And we are STILL being told that this  Persona is nothin' but a random pile of rocks ?

Figuring-out 'The Face'

A professional cartographer, by the name of Erol O. Torun, was  collaborating with Richard C. Hoagland and Carl P. Munck around 1990. They were looking at photos from the 1976 Viking mission to Mars. Torun, who had been working for the Defense Mapping Agency for quite a  number of years, made a map (on his own time) of Cydonia for the three of them to use. Munck proposed that maybe a Martian prime meridian ran through the middle of 'The D&M Pyramid' .... just as he had already discovered (re-discovered) the Earth prime meridian running through the center of The Great Pyramid at Giza. Sure enough .... when Munck tested his hypothesis, the numbers dramatically fell together.

Using Torun's map, Munck measured the longitude distance from the  center of 'The D&M Pyramid' eastward to the center of 'The Face' .... at just slightly over 6.89 arc-minutes. He had also measured the center of 'The Face' at almost exactly 41 deg 11 min 10 sec north latitude.

He immediately recognized the following : Grid Longitude 6.890283706 E.Cydonia .... because he knew this figure as a "Pi Multiplex", as he calls it. Here it is : 6.890283706 = (2Pi / 3) x (Pi / 3) x Pi

Grid Latitude 41 deg x 11 min x 10.03080581 sec North = 4523.893421 North = 1440 x Pi

He knew the figure 4523.893421 as a major Pi-multiple, found in many cases throughout this re-discovered matrix. The number 1440 is exactly 4 times 360.

The Grid Point Value, of a given site, is the ratio of its Grid Longitude to its Grid Latitude .... always greater-than-one.

Grid Point Value 4523.893421 / 6.890283706 = 656.56127


by Michael Lawrence Morton

It was Carl P. Munck's article on Stonehenge, in a newsletter put out by Richard C. Hoagland called "Martian Horizons" in the early 1990s, that really got me interested in Munck's work. Munck calls himself an archeocryptographer ... and he is the pioneer in this new field, having re-discovered an amazingly-advanced "geomath matrix" from very deep antiquity, encoded in the precise latitude/longitude positions of ancient pyramids, mounds, effigies, monuments, and stone circles.

Munck has been able to confirm the reality of this incredible discovery (or, re-discovery) by simply pointing-out what is *there* for all to observe, by way of modern satellite-accurate maps, simple math, and a hand-held calculator. Indeed; aerial photography, satellite imaging, and calculators (computers) have proven essential for the birth of archeocryptography.

In his 'decoding' of Stonehenge, Munck first determined that the original Sarsen Circle was constructed of 60 stones ... 30 uprights and 30 cross- pieces. The Sarsen Circle, like any circle, has 360 degrees of arc on its circumference if we assume "our" circle/sphere math conventions. Here was a major key in this re-discovery process : the hypothesis that 360 degrees on a circumference was 'always' an integral part of this advanced 'matrix' !

Munck took the 60 original Sarsen Circle stones and multiplied them by 360 ... 60 x 360 = 21600 .... which "happens to be" the number of arc-minutes on any circumference, according to "our" math conventions. And, 21600 also "happens to be" the number of Nautical Miles on the polar circumference of Earth. Isn't it interesting that one Nautical Mile equals exactly one 'minute' of Earth latitude ? Of course, we also "happen" to use the number 60 for "time circles" ... minutes in an hour and seconds in a minute ... as on the circumference of a clock face. We are finding out (re-discovering) that the numbers 60 and 360 are not *really* arbitrary, in terms of what we know as time and space.

I think the number 60 is very "geometric" because it is divisible by many whole numbers into many *other* whole numbers, and this is part of the inherent "nature" of our number system.

(I now think that the distance, on a baseball field, from the pitcher's mound to home plate .... 60 feet, 6 inches .... is not really *arbitrary*, either. 60 x 6 = 360 But that's a subject for another article.)

Latitude of Stonehenge

Using the most accurate maps available, Carl P. Munck looked to see if he could find some meaningful relationship between the precise location of Stonehenge, on Earth in terms of latitude and/or longitude, and the number 21600. He noted its latitude of approximately 51 deg 10 min North. Suppose he would, for instance, divide the number 21600 by 51, and then divide that result by 10 ? Yes, this is what he did :

21600 / 51 = 423.5294118

Then, 423.5294118 / 10 = 42.35294118

Amazingly, Stonehenge centers itself precisely AT this latitude :

51 deg 10 min 42.3529 sec

Munck calls the product of a site's (centered) degrees x minutes x seconds .... the 'Grid Latitude' (or 'Grid Longitude' for the site's centered longitude).

So; the Grid Latitude of Stonehenge is :

51 deg x 10 min x 42.35294118 sec North = 21600 North

Original Longitude of Stonehenge

One of Munck's major discoveries is his re-discovery of "our" (?) original prime meridian for longitude measurement. He determined that the prime meridian for this 'geomath matrix' passes directly through the center of The Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt. So; we adjust our longitude (east or west, according to the site we are working with) by 31 deg 08 min 0.8 sec .... the exact longitude distance between the current Greenwich, England prime meridian and the center of The Great Pyramid.

Grid Longitude 32 deg x 57 min x 28.8173748 sec W.Giza = 52562.89164 W.Giza

(This is W.Greenwich longitude 01 deg 49 min 28.0173748 sec ....exactly where Stonehenge is centered in terms of today's longitude).

Now; the figure 52562.89164 turns out to encode the 'product' of certain math constants and a certain  astronomical/geometric number !

In dealing with circles and spheres, we run into the math constants of Pi and RADIAN measure, and these constants are integral to this 'geomath matrix', along with the number 360. Pi is the ratio of circumference to diameter of any given circle or sphere. Radian (deg) is the arc-distance on the circumference that is equal to the radius of any given circle or sphere. In degrees of arc, the Radian is equal to 57.29577951 (deg) ... to eight decimal places. It is an irrational number, like the Pi constant of 3.141592654 ... to nine decimal places.

The relationship between Pi, the Radian (deg), and 360 (deg) can be shown with this equation : RAD x 2Pi = 360

Now, back to the Grid Longitude of Stonehenge ....

52562.89164 = RAD x Pi x 2Pi x Square Root of 2160 (46.47580015)

Here we have 4 terms, or quantities, multipying to a number that encodes the precise original (Giza-based) longitude of Stonehenge. And, each of these 4 terms are important "entities" that are integral to both the design and the essence of this re-discovered 'matrix'.

Notice that the number 2160 is a "base-ten harmonic" of the number 21600, and vice-versa ... the decimal point is simply moved one place, 'horizontally'.

Note also that 2160 refers to : diameter of The Moon in statute miles (regular miles), years in a Zodiac Age, and the total number of corner-angle degrees on the surface of a Cube.

Grid Point Value of Stonehenge

The intersection point of latitude/longitude is represented in this 'matrix', for any given site, by the ratio of the Grid Latitude to the Grid Longitude, always greater-than-one. This resulting number is the Grid Point Value :

52562.89164 / 21600 = 2.433467206

Munck has determined that the precise (matrix-valid) radius in Feet, of the Sarsen Circle at Stonehenge, is 48.66934411 ... to eight decimal places. If we divide that radius in Feet by Stonehenge's Grid Point Value, we get ....

48.66934411 / 2.433467206 = 20 .... a base-10 harmonic of the 'binary' number 2.

Suppose we divide the Sarsen Circle radius in Feet into the RAD (deg) constant ?

57.29577951 / 48.66934411 = 1.177245771

Munck found that this number is the TANGENT of the precise azimuth-of-orientation of the 'Avenue' at Stonehenge ... 49.65408598 degrees.

He found further that 49.65408598 is equal to : (e / Pi) RAD .... where 'e' is the base of the so-called "natural logarithms", observed in the 'growth patterns' of natural things such as conch shells ... approximately the value 2.72 ....

(2.72258992 / Pi) x RAD (deg) = 49.65408598

Stonehenge, of course, is a very important site in this re-discovered matrix. Next to only The Great Pyramid at Giza, it is apparently the most important site on Earth in the Geomath Matrix.
