The measure of the Cosmos - deciphering the imagery of Icelandic

Measure of the cosmos explains how men in antiquity marked an image of creation in the terrain of new settlements. The book is based on Einar Pálssons hypotheses concerning the use by ancient cultural communities of numerology and symbolism to calculate the placement of their sacred images of creation. The principal refrence points were the motions of the heavenly bodies, the cardinal directions and the proportions of the human body. In fact, mans image of creation was a projection on the terrain of the zodiac, anchored to prominent landmarks on the ground, the cardinal directions and the sun watch. The ancient approach is akin to a yardstick, which applies not only to the ancient sun watch discovered by Einar Pálsson in Iceland, for Pétur Halldórssons research has established that the like refrence frame was used to antiquity in all parts of the globe.

 

„More generally, i construe the ideas and work of Einar Pálsson, Ernest McClain and Pétur Halldórsson as living proof that we - humanity - are in the process of restoring to consciousness key aspects of the mental make-up - spirituality - which our forefathers perceived and preserved through mystical and religious imagery.“ - Gunnar Tómasson, IMF Economist
