COLORING SHEETS: A Guide
The four coloring sheets we offer have been
used in classes at Governors State University and in our Conservative
Our idea has been that they provide a relatively
easy introduction into the worlds of geometry, metaphysics, and
ancient cultures. The images seem to help people relax into the
symbolism of other cultures -- and they appear to stimulate a
desire to actually do in-depth reading about them.
- The Conservative Technology
Dragon. When we designed our logo, during the first year
of our earth energies research, we seemed unable to escape the
symbols of a cosmic egg, dragon, meander, spiral, crystal, serpent,
bull, and worldwide catastrophe. Interesting research projects
that might accompany a coloring exercise include: Serpent Mound
in Ohio; Ouroboros (the mythic snake that bites its own tail);
"living water" and dowsing; Gaia, Ge, and St. George
and the Dragon; Quetzalcoatl.
- The Zodiac, Our
zodiac is reproduced from an 1890s astrology book and is used
every term for Cultural Anthropology at Governors State. The
jumble of mythical animals and figures that characterizes the
uncolored zodiac is quickly transformed into a readily understandable
cast of characters once colored. We have found this process a
good analogy to what happens to the night sky once one has learned
how to "see" it. The exercise provides an introduction
to major characters that appear in myths around the world (e.g.
Sirius [nose of Canis Major]. identified with the Inca end of
the world; major astrology signs) as well as to the cycle of
precession (note the small dashed-line circle in the center of
the drawing that indicated the path of the earth's pole over
a cycle of 25,920 years). Research projects might include procession
of the equinoxes; the ecliptic; Platonic "months" and
"year"; the "ages" of the traditional zodiac.
- Double Hemisphere
World UVG Spheres. The "grid"
on the earth is what we think of as having its living energy
skeleton. Every "line" is actually a "great circle"
-- an equator that divides the earth precisely in half. The lines
in dark black are the framework originally proposed by Russian
and American researchers based on the position of odd areas like
the bermuda triangle and the mid-ocean ridges. The smaller lines
were added by us -- and are paths of energy predicted for a shpere
by the late geometer-philosoher R. Buckminster Fuller. There
are three types of major intersections on the grid -- where two
great circles cross; where three great circles cross; and where
five great circles cross. An interesting exercise for students
is to have then color similar intersections uniformly -- and
then to see if they detect any characteristics of earth that
are similar for similar intersections.
- Grid Images
and Symbols in Culture and Nature.
The patterns of the earth energy grid allow for almost endless
speculation -- once one sees them, they seem to be everywhere.
Our coloring sheet is really only a beginning to get people to
In the center
of the sheet is our "armillary sphere," a device we
propose was probably used in ancient times in the same way newer
armillary spheres were used during the renaissance. By placing
the device in the sun, a replica is created of how energies might
be focused upon the earth (or "captured sphere") within
(Beginning from the Christian cross and proceeding around to
1. The Christian
cross of the precise proportion of the grid.
2. Man also fits the proportions
of the grid, in the figure reminiscent of Leonardo da Vinci's.
3. The caduceus, staff carried
by the messenger of the gods Hermes (sometimes called Mercury).
Many researchers feel the entwined serpents actually represent
earth energies -- or even DNA! This is also the symbol of the
American Medical Association.
4. The Star of David. This figure
appears in artwork that is thousands of years old, and was proposed
by James Churchward as a symbol of a lost civilization he called
5. Mars and its "canals."
While we don't know what the lines are, they bear a striking
resemblance to what we have proposed for the earth. Similar "lines"
are visible on Venus, also. These lines are not capable of being
photographed but are seen consistently by about 20% of astronomers.
6. Band widths of frequency tunability
proposed for earth by R. Buckminster Fuller.
7. The Reed Sphere, a ritual
object found all over southeast Asia.
8. Our "UVG" earth
sphere, with grid lines emphasized that appear to replicate both
the patterns of nos. 7 and 8.
9. Our UVG sphere with grid lines
emphasized that appear to replicate no. 10.
10. Contemporary model of a virus!
One of the primary patterns a virus takes is the icosahedron.
