About the Book

The book is a compendium of selected writings and notes from the author's unique and amazing "Glimmer Table" creations. Number summations and symmetrical combinations discovered in the tables represent major measurements of the Great pyramid and its connection to the Earth-Moon system.

The author offers powerful tabular evidence that the principal architect of the pyramid chose the 'foot' as the primary unit of linear measure for the design, then retained in secret the mathematical system that was used to define the unit of measure for the pyramid. This secret is uncovered and disclosed herein by the author, and the chosen unit is found to be dimensionally the same as the 'foot' defined by the British Imperial system of units.

Surprisingly, the two and three column alpha-numeric tables that he develops also yield cosmological data and an Anglocentric metrological connection to the Great pyramid. These findings support the belief by some that the English language holds many secret keys to the ancient past.

In the culmination of this compendium a set of general tabular development rules evolved that, when followed, amazingly will yield similar historical data from our ancient past.

About the Author

Having served as a merchant seaman in his late teens during the height of World War II, and later sailing as a deck officer in the early post war era, provided the author with a keen perception and a first understanding of the mechanics of the universe. His early seagoing training in navigation had raised in him the desire to gain a greater knowledge of the world he lived in.

During the 60’s, he obtained two degrees in Physics and began an academic career of management, teaching and research at the University of South Florida. In the 70's, He received funding from the Federal Sea Grant Program for development of an oil spill recovery concept for which patents were later issued. This work also provided the opportunity to spend a year as an invited research associate with SINTEF at the University of Trondheim in Norway.

By the mid 80’s he had moved from Florida to the North Carolina mountains in the first step toward early retirement. This moved him out of the “big city” and into a more peaceful environment, one that would be conducive to other kinds of creative activity. From the fall of 89 through the spring of 91 He taught at the University of Western North Carolina on a part time basis as he began to settle into a slower pace of life.
