produced in these giant sizes if every piece, being part of a circle,
had a radius and a centre whose length and exact position were
carefully laid out." (Maria Reiche on Nazca)|
The Geometric Nature of
Nazca-monkey is a
masterpiece of Science-Art and it's not hard to see that it deals with geometric ideas. However, there is a lack of clues to the
mutual causality in those ideas. By itself, the Nazca-monkey is clad in impenetrable
mystery; it is a practically unsolvable puzzle.
It was different with me; there was a sense of familiarity at the very first sight. Indeed, I
had already solved
a different edition of the same puzzle, long before the monkey came to my attention. 14,000 years old, the Athena-engraving from the cave of La
Marche near Lussac-les
Châteaux, France is essentially the same design; and it comes with a complete set of clues for the basic solution.
applicability of what I learned about the monkey to the rest of Nazca,
again it is Reiche making a key observation:
"This (monkey) drawing
consists of no more than two elements. One is a
wide line (or better geometric surface, being at the beginning twice as
wide as at the end) with a
stem which, almost a mile long, leads into the maze of lines at the
edge of the pampa."
Here we have a clear physical
connection between the
supposedly unconnected figures and lines (the animal and plant figures
generally attributed to the older
pre-Nazcan people of the Paracas culture). This connection means that

and with the greatest possible precision. The data should be digitized
and fed into an AI program trained to recognize geometric coding.
terms of sheer complexity, Nazca Monkey does not begin to compare
to Athena; therefore, its unique ideas stand out more. Its most
emphatically stated idea is a direct reference to a particular
method of constructing the
regular 5-pointed star. As far as I
know, it is the second quickest such
construction, as it only takes thirteen steps.
sophisticated, it is no rocket-science. The smell of rocket-fuel comes
from seeing the same idea accurately mirrored in the
Athena-engraving. Moreover, I learned years later that the
method of pentagram construction is essential to being able to recreate the
layout of the great Giza pyramids (as surveyed by
Petrie) from scratch, and with total accuracy. No one had done it before despite more than a century of efforts. Again, having prerequisite
knowledge was decisive.
A Big Question
power looms behind this paradigm-changing global
phenomenon of ancient
sites mirroring each
other's ideas? An
"Agency" is an adequately vague reply. We don't know what it is,
but over the
span of 12,000 years or so, the
Agency had left its inimitable signature at La Marche, Nazca,
Giza - advertizing its power and suggesting an explanation to other historical enigmas like the
Terrace, UAPs, vimanas, etc.
Present Status of Discovery
Having evidence pass tests in
the abstract realm of geometry leaves no doubt about
Geometry in the evidence. All
that remains is verification of its existence
by objective and authoritative
third parties. Unfortunately, the discovery does great damage to the entrenched academic consensus.
The academia already has a recipe for handling hot potatoes like
the one I served it; it relies on a logically deficient doctrine - significant
mathematical order can be found practically everywhere, in any random
collections of lines, points, ancient art, cloud
and so on.
The doctrine is clearly devious for it omits to take into consideration
criteria which enable us to distinguish naturally occuring patterns
implemented order. That such criteria must exist is self-evident.
This study uses a copy of the monkey originally published by Maria Reiche, Nazca's
scholarly guardian angel. I had it digitized by a service specialising
in converting architectural and engineering plans into digital files,
because back then in the early nineties it was utterly impractical to
use large TIFF files as computers took too long to handle them.
Reiche had learned about the giant
figure on the pampa from commercial pilots in 1952,
some years after her arrival to Nazca. It became her favorite
figure, and she ascribed it special significance; therefore,
of it should be meticulous:
monkey and surroundings would be an appropriate subject for a special
study, as it is a complete unit and
the pursuit of each line to its origin does not, as at the border of
the pampa, lead unendingly from one thing to another."
Unfortunately, Reiche never did carry out that
ubiquitous, and unflattering, stereotype which shows the monkey as if
it were tumbling on all fours is incorrect. Even a
cursory inspection of the monkey glyph
reveals evidence of a measured effort.
it looks like my present copy is sufficiently
accurate in preserving major aspects of the design. Still, having
a highly accurate plan of the monkey, one that would
map both line-edges, would be nice.

purple color below; it has a cone
whose sides run parallel to the original cone here.

the purple star's tips actually mark the
monkey's head, hands, feet, and tail. This

triangles as in the diagram below, an extensive geometric harmony is
established between that system and the system of 5-pointed stars. This
harmony really catches the eye because of how good it looks at this
magnification, leaving no doubt about its planned nature.
Another visual proof that the angle
of the Big X is 36°
Let's array the upper part of the Big X, (including
the monkey) five times around the center of the Monkey-star.
Supposing we didn't know what the angle was, the result would seem
strange - Five times two lines (of the Big-X) equals ten
lines, but we only see five lines (one 5-pointed star). That
means lines overlap two
at a time, so the angle of the
cone must be 36°.

in the beginning
It all began with the prehistoric engraving from France. In contemplating it, I was thrilled by fantastic imagery
percolating from subliminal perception to my mind. A lot of it seemed
significant. For instance, lines inside the
lady's torso made me think of the Giza pyramids; and the torso itself
like a flying saucer with a cupola on top. In fact, the entire image
could be disassembled into what looked like Hi-tech transport craft.
Could it be that
image made direct references to the secrets of prehistoric pyramids, civilisations, even Aliens?
Disappointingly, when I tried to share my impressions with others, I ran
into a wall of skepticism. I had no proof..
Were the Ancients
just teasing, mocking from the shadows? On
the other hand, if these Ancients were nice, they might furnish the
proof by formal design. Thus was born
the initial hypothesis - an assumption based upon ethics, which encouraged me to keep looking.
The Cone & Square Formation - a brief history of its discovery
In the image above, the
Square itself is not shown, but you can see the lens shape on its
inside, given by two circles centered in diagonally opposite corners of
the Square and passing through its adjacent corners. Only the bottom
circle is fully shown. You can also see its diagonals.
The Square was the
first abstract element I had identified in the engraving; its presence
is truly conspicuous there, in contrast to its obscure presence in
the monkey glyph. The Cone followed after, because its presence
in Athena is as unclear as the Square is in the monkey.
Cone & Square formation is the basic
design platform for both Athena and the monkey. It is extremely
sophisticated. We'll see how the designers are
second to none in understanding the geometry involved.
the big circle
First, one has to identify the three circles forming the Cone. The big
circle at the top of the Cone is conspicuous as it presents symmetry
through the center between two arcs, one of which is beautifully
regular. Its center is at the edge of an engraved line. Seen
together, the two abstractions, the Square and the Cone's top
circle, imply even more planning as the circle locks onto two main
points of the Square, its center and its top corner (diagram).
I had the first substantial confirmation of my initial hypothesis _ the
Stone Age engraving would prove to be scientific, somehow, in order to
confirm the strong artistic impression of showing advanced technology. I began believing that this
impression was based in reality.
As seen in the graphic above,
the other two circles are not as defined since each is based just on a
single arc. However there is strong confirmation for the existence of
middle circle: There was a stage when all apparently circular arcs in
the engraving had been converted into
circles, and quite a few of these turned out extremely close in size to
middle Cone circle. The middle circle stands confirmed, because it is a
member of a whole class of circles. Evidently, a circle which is
ubiquitous is some sort of a unit
the third circle
Unfortunately, the exact reconstruction of this small circle in the abstract
geometrical position still eludes me, but this circle did its job in giving me the Cone.
three symmetric circles
I noticed that the three circles center on the same line. Then I noticed their
symmetry, and the Cone was born.
Next, the Cone may imply a 5-pointed star, because the angle between its sides is 36 degrees.
But, what would the star's size be?
the middle circle of the Cone were indeed a unit circle, it might
provide the answer. How does describing the Cone with it work out?
As seen in the diagram below, the experiment worked wonders.
It gave a perfect proof that like
the X-tree of the monkey glyph, the Cone derives from a
pentagram. In this prehistoric system, the arms of a 5-pointed star are
five units long and each unit serves as the radius of a circle.
circles reveal the secrets of Cone's construction.
the Middle Cone circle
upper intersection of the fourth row of unit circles on the Cone shows where

but it is almost imperceptibly smaller: If the unit-circle's radius is
1, the Middle-circle's radius is 0.9975... |
are two ways to recreate it:
a) The upper intersection of the third row of unit
locates the exact mid-point on
the Cone's axis
between the Cone's bottom tip and the center of the big top
The unit circle concentric with the top circle is then an exact tangent to the nearest unit circles.
b) A circle whose radius is 2 units and is centered in the fifth row of
the unit circles then intersects the cone's axis at the exact center
of the big top circle
Square is entirely based on the Cone. Its reconstruction is truly simple.
a) the horizontal diagonal of the Square rests on two of the Cone's
unit circles, the 5th one on the left, and the 4th one on the right, as
seen in the above diagram.
b) The point at which the Cone's big circle crosses this newly made
diagonal will be the Square's center.
c) The vertical diagonal from this center then crosses the big
circle at the Square's top corner.
The rest of the Square is added from
Placement of the Square on the Monkey
Of the 5-pointed stars offered by the X-tree, the one of most interest
to us is the star that covers the figure of the monkey (diag.
above). It offers ten cones, and the
tips of four of those actually mark the
monkey's head, hands, feet, and tail. All four cones belong to the purple star; call it the Monkey Star.

and its sides
parallel to X-tree's lines (diag. above). Therefore,
it is the first pick as the experimental carrier of the
Moment of Truth
Adding of the Square to the monkey was critical; I
anticipated the moment of truth. Though I felt that my
presentation of Athena's Cone
& Square system was solid, it was rejected outright by all those
that mattered, with
the sole exception of the mathematics professor Jiří Fiala of
Charles University. He bravely rendered his
opinion in an official letter, in which he stated that to be proven, my
theory would have to identify the
same system in other artefacts.
Suddenly, there was the monkey
with its own variation of the Cone. Fantastic! But, was the Square
built in as well? Since it was the Cone's main product in
its La Marche
version, why would it not be reincarnated in the monkey and be as dominant there as it is in the Athena
Adding the Square to the Cone was the obligatory next step - and it drew back the curtain on extraordinary harmony
the monkey and the Square. Moreover, the monkey's Square is designed to
bring up a certain important geometric idea, one I had not observed
in the Athena Engraving
Being so important, was the idea also included in Athena, but hard to spot like the Square in the
Testing revealed that Athena actually explores this idea to a
much greater depth
than the monkey. It gave me invaluable new insights into the
engraving, which I would not otherwise be able to discover as easily,
if ever. This was the first case of Nazca Lines and
La Marche engravings forming a
two-way street for movement of ideas, and a road-map to some fantastic

Nazca. A day came when I tested the same
idea against Petrie's survey of Giza's big pyramids; and I was able to
independently duplicate his Giza ground plan. It left no doubt that the three
pyramids had been planned together. Yet, a skeptic will comment that the fact in no way
proves that Giza is directly connected to La Marche and Nazca.

There is just one way to eliminate that objection. Did the Agency

Little by little, step by step, we witness a long march of
coordinated ideas which create an autonomous reality, completely at
odds with official history. This reality does not need to
be conciliatory with anything. To paraphrase
Descartes "Cogito, ergo sum" - it is cogent; therefore it exists. It is
the mainstream historical science which has to reconcile itself to this

by chance, but here it is just a small part of the whole story. Knowing
the whole story equals knowing that the designers are as
conscious of this particular square as we are. |
The monkey seems to know it too, as its arms pantomime a similarly
sized square whose sides are parallel to the Square's diagonals.
a list of other obvious planning in the image
Three corners of the Square are anchored in the
monkey's figure _ the
spine, a knee, and a hand.
As for the fourth, the top corner, a
horizontal line resting
on this corner limits
the southern reach of the monkey figure. It is one of the four
lines containing the Square at 45 degrees to its sides _ forming an enclosing square. All four lines are
strategically positioned with respect to the monkey figure:
The spine is a tunnel for the vertical line from the left corner of the
One of the monkey's thighs is a tunnel for the horizontal line from the bottom
corner of the Square.
The vertical line from the right corner of the Square divides the wrist
from the rest of the right arm, while the hand of the other arm, except
for a thin sliver of one finger, is entirely to the west of this line.
Square's vertical axis tunnels
down the upper right arm. At the top, it divides the arc of the left
ear from the skull. At the bottom, except for a thin sliver of one
heel, the feet are entirely to the west of this line.
red vertical border lines "a" and "b" show exact spacing derived
from the Square: "a" extends the Square's diagonal by one-fourth
exactly, and it is the exact border for the right hand from the west;
"b" doubles the
diagonal length exactly and is the exact border for the glyph
here. This is an interesting position; this part of the glyph shows
three triangles that have been alleged by some to symbolize three
pyramids. The diagonal passes through the apex of the largest one; the
sides of this pyramid hold an angle of 60 (59.5) degrees. Moreover, the
base of this pyramid also equals the diagonal length of the Square.
All these regularities bespeak planning. I
was impressed by these initial results even without knowing
that the Square is also oriented to the
cardinal points. (
I learned that important fact later, when I came across Reiche's
drawing of the monkey with the world-compass included. )
Monkey's containing rectangle
For more persuasive evidence that the monkey’s layout with respect
to the cardinal points is premeditated,
we simply enclose it by East-West and North-South oriented lines
_ x,y-diagonals of the Square. This is its containing rectangle.
Adding central axes to the rectangle shows that:
• the spine divides the monkey in half neatly
along the East-West axis
• with great precision, the lower right forearm divides the monkey in half along the North-South axis
Therefore, axes of our containing rectangle are the two
‘great divides’ which clearly govern the
Goldent triangle's containing rectangle
A Golden Triangle is an isosceles triangle, where the ratio of one side
to the base is 1.618099..., the famous φ-ratio, also known as
Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Golden Section, Sweet Proportion, etc.
The monkey's containing rectangle in the above image has two inscribed triangles which are almost
indistinguishable from each other, because their directions differ by
only 1/10 degree, 18 and 17.9 degrees. One is the Golden Triangle itself.
The below photograph
shows some serious damage to the eastern portion of the spiral tail.
Obviously, Maria Reiche had faced a difficult challenge in establishing
the exact contours of the lines in this damaged area, and she did a
pretty good job of that, as the Golden Triangle was ostensibly the idea
behind the containing rectangle.
Master of Squares
like the one above encourage more experiments with containing
rectangles: in the monkey's body-language, its arms
signal two squares. In the first case, two sides
of the Monkey Frame and its horizontal axis in combination with a
vertical line from the turn of the elbow and on through
the outside of the upper right arm form a

Monkey-frame combine into the crucially
monkey is also a template for yet another square. This time, the top
side of the square rests on the southern-most points of left
ear and elbow. Marked by small red circles, the points align in
the East-West direction.
Two more sides of the square are attached to the western and northern limits of the hands.
The eastern side rests on the point at which the line of the head takes a sharp turn and changes into the neck (line).
south-east corner of this square is inside the line of the head.

The same diagram above also shows that according to my CAD program, the width of the four fingers of the left
hand very much equals the height of the right hand.
of the right hand
width of the four fingers of the
left hand = 10.02699519
Because the radius of the Monkey-star's
inner circle = 10.04057079, the right hand's height
differs from the radius
of the inner-circle by less than 2 millimeters! Of course, the real
lines have a width, and it's impossible to tell from my position how
this would work out on the spot. Nevertheless, both hands hint
strongly that the inner-circle of the Monkey-star really is the matter
of these facts.
The position of the Foot-square in combination with the Square has a truly inspirational solution.
To begin, the
top right corner of the Foot-square connects to the top and bottom
corners of the Square by lines closely approximating angles found on a
regular 5-pointed star.
I took it as a clear indication that a star
should be drawn here.
So I extended the line through B and C to where it met the Square's
horizontal diagonal. Then I mirrored lines A-B, and B-C
across the Square's vertical axis.
The result was a really great
looking facsimile of a 5-pointed star.
Next, I drew a second, and mathematically exact, star in the same place, i.e., from the top of the
Square, with the horizontal diagonal of the Square serving as one of
the star's arms.
|The two stars are so
being identical that they pass for a single star when seen like this.
While drawing the regular star, I saw that the instrumental
'golden-circle', centered in the bottom corner of the Square,
seemed as big as the circle drawn around the
Foot-square. On the right of the diagram, the two circles are
drawn from the same center-point, and they do look like a
single circle. Their radii differ by mere 2
centimeters in my CAD.dwg of the monkey - virtually
nothing on the scale shown.
Below: another look at the same.
Above - the same geometry by itself.
The Foot-square is an intriguing addition to the otherwise standard position. Why did the ancients set it up?
I surmised, wrongly, as it turned out, that it was a reference to
the quickest straight-edge and
compasses construction of the regular 5-pointed star. It
is probably the second quickest.
At the time, I had no way of knowing that this method was the key to
solving, i.e., being able to reconstruct, the ground plan of the three
pyramids at Giza as given by the meticulous survey of W.F. Petrie, plus, establishing who and when had created this plan.

other side as well).

turned out that Athena gives this idea quite an in-depth treatment. Its
description takes considerable space but is unavoidable since whatever
it tells us about Athena has a bearing upon the monkey, too.
The Athena-engraving already has its Square; so we just add the
13-step star with the Foot-square to
template. We have to rotate it 90 degrees; however, so it points towards Athena's feet (diagram below).
By the way, unlike the
barefoot Nazca-monkey, it's clear that Athena has footwear on. To me, it looks like a heeled boot
with a stirrup on her left foot, and something not so easily
identifiable on her right. Whatever it may be, it is startling in that it has three toes just
like the monkey.
The circle around the Foot-square (the Square's Golden-circle)
clearly centers upon Athena's right leg below the
Whereas at Nazca the Foot-square covers both feet, here it covers
just one, because the designers had availed themselves of the greater
complexity of Athena and expanded the Nazcan idea into a
system of two Foot-squares.
The Foot-square, along with the smaller squares inscribed within, is
custom-fitted to the lower leg and the foot; with the exception of its
left side, all the other lines define the foot in some way. For
* the bottom line of the square does exactly the same
thing here as in the monkey glyph - it
limits the right foot from below and does it with extreme accuracy;
* its right side is a perfect limit for the middle toe;
* one side of the smaller inscribed square forms such a limit for the heel.

numerous instances of it for the sake of brevity.

amazingly precise fit. It is shown below at about 2 X lifesize

overall, the experiment of testing the concept learned from Nazca to
the Athena-engraving worked out beyond expectation. I had found
three prominent instances of the Foot-square in Athena. Along with
previously discovered material, it was enough confirmation for the
hypothesis. Satisfied, I went on to other things.
Following the script
Years later, and after much progress on other fronts, I returned to
Athena. I got the initial Foot-square by construction, but the other
two by just shuffling it about the figure. Yet, I knew that there had
to be a correct way to do it by exact design because that's how
the Ancients did everything else.

it decides the issue of who is the creator of the Cone &

Any number of designs claiming descent from a particular

Of course, this principle only applies if such
stars exist in reality rather than in imagination.
The Athena Engraving and the Nazca Monkey glyph are vastly different from each other in size. In the image
below, the two were scaled and positioned so that their respective 'mother'
stars merged and became one and the same. Both works were thus presented on the mutually proper 1 : 1 scale.
The heads of both subjects are similarly positioned across the mother star's vertical axis.
Both heads are planted in the other subject's midsection at a similar depth.

possible for the circular top of the monkey's head.
Without any rotation whatsoever, next, we move the

The Seal of Atlantis
The Peruvian "Nazca Monkey" is identical
to the 14,000 years old "Athena" engraving from La Marche,
France in that both images are instances of the same geometric engine,
the Cone & Square. Using this engine, we have just
successfully completed a round trip from the Athena-engraving to the
Nazca-monkey and back.
Nazca-monkey accentuates the Cone element, and so it was easy to see at
a glance. But the impulse to look for it came from La Marche, where it
was really hard to discover. In turn, the monkey gives practically no clue to
the Square. The impulse to check out the monkey for the

Since there was a flow of ideas from La Marche, France to
Peru, an experiment was in order to test the flow going the other way,
too. The monkey suggests experimenting with the Foot-square idea in
the engraving. Performing the experiment then rewards us with
in-depth treatment of the theme in Athena. You have just witnessed the

idea is easy to reproduce (see above), because we know the position
of the Foot Square. We get the southern and northern lines of the
Monkey Frame, plus the horizontal axis.
Next, we need to determine the East-West
position of the Monkey Frame:
It seems that the lower line of the triangle
pointing west passes through an inside corner of the Monkey Star.
That point is marked by a small yellow circle in the diagram above.
So, we try this idea. See the reconstructed Monkey Frame

Foot-square's width, the axes, and the Arms-Square, turns
out very exact. Note, how the straight horizontal line of the
right forearm is completely blotted out by the Frame's horizontal axis.

Nazca Lines theories

foot-hills host a world-unique, spectacular panorama
of numerous lines,
trapezoids, animal and plant figures. Not surprizingly, Nazca

theory has provoked most scornunanimously
relegating it to the lunatic bin. Yet, Daniken was right in
assuming that an advanced civilisation had somehow played a role at
Nazca. But, even the
more serious and methodical
Maria Reiche, the saviour of Nazca from
being plowed into fields, had her theory about
astronomical alignments subjected to analysis and dismissed. That has
cast a shadow in which Reiche's observations on the
figures are simply overlooked.
Johan Reinhard notes that an
extraordinary proportion of trapezoids
trace the course of geological faults bearing water from
aquifers. It throws some light on those
trapezoids and triangles.
Anthony Aveni's popular theory about the
religious-magic significance of the Nazca lines presumes that because
of the dry microclimate, water was uppermost on the collective mind of
they had made the lines for walking as a form of rain-dancing. For
support, he cites a mystical experience he had when walking the
contours of the hummingbird figure.
Clearly, explaining the lines by the
animal figures, as Aveni does, yet denying connections between the two,
is a blatant faux-pas. And if Nazcans had indeed
adopted Paracan magic practices of decorating the desert, why
did they create an entirely new style and treat the older
as if they weren't there?
Perhaps, a line crossing over a figure
doesn't make the line ages younger, and irrelevant to

associated spiders with
water, hence the giant spider glyph keeps in character with

There are other ways to speculate, too: After a
of generations, Nazcans would learn that rain over
desert, one of the most arid places on Earth,
is a perfect non-factor. They would see the old figures unchanged over
decades, whence the yearning to add
their own drawings to an eternal gallery. Naturally, such
drawings must be heavy in symbolism, and have hermetic significance.
everything at Nazca is interconnected, the glyphs may be telling
a very long and detailed story.
