Secrets In Plain Sight (www.secretsinplainsight.com) is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history.
Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time.
As the series of videos reveals how profound ancient knowledge inherited from Egypt has been encoded in units of measurement, in famous works of art, in the design of major buildings, in the layout of city streets and public spaces, and in the precise placement of obelisks and other important monuments upon the Earth, the viewer is led to perceive an elegant harmonic system linking the human body with the architectural, urban, planetary, solar, and galactic scales.

To really understand consciousness you have to feel it, and here comes the crutch of the matter. If awareness uses the intellect, i.e. the brain, consciousness is about feeling it – feeling it in the heart. Physically a short distance from awareness but a massive journey in understanding.
So if awareness is an intellectual knowing, an understanding, why when we are aware of negative behaviour, don’t we change it?
Now that’s a complicated question, ask any addict. The mother of answers to this conundrum is that we have not felt the true depths of the problem in our hearts. Our heart is no doubt our ‘wisest’ organ. When we act from it we become the answer, the solution, and we stop ‘being’ the problem. Being conscious is therefore a knowing, deep from within the heart.
This is somewhat ironic bearing in mind we relate consciousness to the brain. I suggest that consciousness is what connects us all within a unified field, who’s ‘signal’ is received by the brain and message is felt in the heart.
