What do the numbers 3, 6 and 9 have in common with the colours red, black and white? Nothing at first glance until you realise that these numbers and colours were known and used by the ancient peoples all over the world. The question is why and especially what for?

At the end of 1998 I started writing my book, ' Crop circles, gods and their secrets'. During my research of the world-wide phenomena of mysterious crop circles I constantly came across the same numbers. Time after time the different parts of the crop circle could be converted to the numbers 3, 6 or 9. Of course that wasn't the case with every crop circle but I did come across these numbers often enough to not just pass it off to coincidence. Coincidence doesn't exist in my daily living. Coincidence: means a sequence of events that although accidental seem to have been planned or arranged.

During my research I also came across the pyramids of Egypt because crop circles and the Pyramid of Giza are interrelated. One thing that struck me was that the ancient Egyptians did not recognise the number 2 as plural but the number 3. 1 man and 1 woman was not plural according to the Egyptians but 1 man and 2 women or 2 men and 1 woman was. Archaeologists have all too often been surprised with the fact that a pharaoh was depicted with his left foot on 9 bows. One did not know what this signified but the 9 bows stand for the 9 enemies he had conquered. To this day we are still using the term 'stop walking in front of my feet'. The pharaoh not only conquered 9 enemies, but all the enemies considering that 9 is a triplicate plural precisely 3x3. The number 9 is a perfect number because when you take all the numbers from 1 to 9 and add them up you get 45 as a total. When 45 is broken down as 4+5=9 it leads us back to that perfect number 9. The numbers 3 and 9 were not unfamiliar in ancient Egypt. Which leaves us with the number 6 that is positioned between 3 and 9. These 3 numbers are in a relationship of 1:2:3 to each other. This relationship of 1:2:3 can be traced back to many of the ancient places for example in Teotihuacan, Mexico. According to Hugh Harleston Jr, in Teotihuacan one can find a whole complex of pyramids and structures that represent our Solar System. The 3 most important pyramids of Teotihuacan are the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun although these are not their original names. These 3 pyramids have a height respectively of 21,42 and 63 Hunab high. The Hunab, which is the smallest unit of measurement used by the Teotihuacan has been calculated as 1.05954 meters by Harleston himself. By using this calculation we then see that the 3 pyramids are in the 1:2:3 relationship. If we take the total height of the 3 pyramids and convert them then we get the following results: 21=3, 42=6 and 63=9. Once again these are the same numbers as in Egypt and the same as the ones I have come across in various crop circles.

But my question is what else can we do with these statistics? Naturally it is very exciting to see that we come across the same facts all over the world. You would almost start to presume that there once was a communal source where all the knowledge stemmed from. Which source could that have been? Plato told us of the island of Atlantis, which with her far advanced knowledge and technology sank into the ocean. Plato also described the colours red, white and black as the architectural colours of Atlantis.

As far as I know these colours can be traced back to all the ancient peoples and cultures. The current day Turkish people speak of 'Ak Deniz' which means 'the White Sea' not of the Mediterranean Sea. They respectively call the Red Sea and the Black Sea 'Kizil Deniz' and 'Kara Deniz'. Along with the Egyptian and Basque languages the Turkish language is one that does not fit into any of the categories. I presume that these languages stem indirectly or straight from Atlantis. If we look at the Turkish names of the seas through 'Egyptian glasses' then we see that instead of Ak Deniz it could also say Ka Deniz because the Egyptian language does not recognize vowels. So it could say Ka instead of Ak. In Egyptian Ka stands for soul. So instead of the White Sea you could also say 'the Soul Sea' or 'the Sea of Souls'. According to the ancient Greeks the Sun was reborn every morning out of the Black Sea, the Kara Deniz. So as we have seen Ka means soul and Ra means Sun. Kara then means 'the Soul of the Sun'. In Turkey they also have a title for the Atlantic Ocean which is the 'Yesil Deniz' which in turn means the Green Sea. In Egypt Osiris was always depicted as green. This is possibly due to the fact that Osiris originated from Atlantis, which the name says it all, was located in the Atlantic Ocean which was known as Yesil Deniz, the Green Sea. Green plays a very important role, although I have not exactly discovered the exact role that it plays but probably relates to the vegetation. It is well known though that when Al Mahmun (820 A.D.., see Al Makrizi) broke open the Great Pyramid a pharaoh was found in a coffin made of Malachite. This precious gem is green. There was a red ruby positioned beside the pharaoh's head. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the pharoah was bound in white linen. The pharoahs were crazy about Malachite mostly because green is a comforting and consoling colour. One could assume from all this that if everything comes from once source it is probable that they were not very happy with the dissapearance of Atlantis- the continent of their predecessors. They dissappeared into the Yesil Deniz, the Green Sea, 'the Malachite Sea'.

After some detective work I came to the conclusion that the colour black represents death, the underworld and red represents life, and white stands for the eternity of eternal life. The colour red is the giver of life and we come across it within various ancient cultures, peoples and tribes all over the world. For example the Pyramids of the Mayans were painted red on the outside and there are many more examples where these 3 colours can be traced back to. One of these examples is the Pyramid of Menkaura in Egypt. This building is constructed in the following pattern: 2 layers of black stones, 16 layers of red stones and the rest of the pyramid was made out of white stones.

Earlier on I had already come to the conclusion that black, red and white can be associated with the numbers 3, 6 and 9. Black is 3, red is 6 and white is 9. This is only valid for the colours we can actually see with our earthly eyes. I say this because the colour of 'the Light' or whatever you want to call it must be a 0 which represents an eternal, never ending circle. Considering that the number 0 doesn't have a numerical value it is represented here on earth as a 9. This is how it seems that the Pyramid of Menkaura has been built according to the numbers 3, 6 and 9. If we add these three numbers together they can be converted to the number 9 which is useful information for the following.

In his work ' the State VIII' Plato described that 'that which is of godly origin has a circumference found within a perfect number'. Scholars have calculated this number to be 216 and the number 216 can be converted back to 9 (a very important number which reoccurs in my book on a regular basis mainly due to the fact that I came across it in 2 very important crop circles. These are crop circles that describe the history of mankind, but then not as we think that it went.) If we go back to the Pyramid of Menkaura then we suddenly realize a whole different meaning behind the 3 colours out of which this pyramid was constructed. 2 layers of black, 16 layers of red and the rest is white. Suddenly we see the number 216 appear. According to what I believe we can assign the 'number 0' to the white layers of the top of the pyramid. Next if we take the number 369 and subtract the 216 we are left with 153 another important number. This is the numerical value of the Quetzalcoatl, a god from ancient Mexico. This value is achieved by giving a numerical value to all the letters. A is 1, B is 2 etc, until Z which is 26. Oddly enough is the fact that the entrance of the Great Pyramid is situated at the 17th layer of stones. When you add up all the numbers from 1-17 (ie. 1+2+3+4+.......+17) you get a total of 153!

In ancient Mexico this god was known as Quetzalcoatl, the winged, or feathered snake but in Egypt his name was Thoth. The god which was often depicted as having the head of an Ibis. This Thoth built the Pyramids of Giza around 14,000 BC. I have always asked myself the following. Why was Thoth illustrated as having the head of an Ibis? I believe that the following is the answer: the current day South American Ibis is born with a black colour. When the bird matures his colour changes from black to grey to white and when the bird has finally reached maturity, then this bird actually turns red due to its dietary intake. This South American Ibis has the colours black, white and red contained within its life cycle. According to various sources there is a chamber built within the Great Pyramid out of the colours red, white and black. Again we are confronted with the same 3 colours of black, red and white.

I have asked many people to try to imagine a black area in their field of vision, then a white area beside it. The next question I would ask them is: 'which colour HAS to travel between the black and white areas?' Besides the logical transitional colour of grey many people answered red. If you ask me, too many people answered red. For some reason it is the colour red that MUST be placed between black and white and most subjects questioned were aware of this unconsciously. When they were asked as to why they thought this they could not come up with an answer.

According to the ancient Sumerians the inhabitants of the 12th planet(who were considered gods by the primitive forms of mankind at that time) genetically altered the development of mankind on Earth. These gods needed slaves to work for them in the African gold mines. The first example of this was 'the Adam' who was created satisfactorily and was able to follow orders. The word Adam also has another meaning, but it is pronounced 'adom' which means turning red' or 'being red' in Hebrew. When it is pronounced 'adam' it means 'redness' or 'red colour'(rouge). The Hebrew word for 'red' only differs one letter from the word 'adam' but this is pronounced as 'adom' Hebrew words have 1 or more meanings and this is also valid for the word pronounced as 'awad' which means slave. If the word is pronounced 'ewed' then it means 'working' or 'serving' (for god). According to the Sumerian scriptures this was the reason why the gods of the 12th planet created Adam by means of genetic manipulation. Is it a coincidence that the words 'slave' and 'serving' are made up of the exact same vowels? Not in my eyes. Fact is that the Hebrew word for 'Adam' not only stands for 'Adam' but ' becoming red, being red, redness and red colour'. Red was the colour of the gift of life. Red is the colour of blood, life. When 'dam' is said in Hebrew then one means blood. 'Dam' is simply one letter difference with Adam.

African traditions speak of the fact that God created a man from clay and baked him in an oven. The 'clay figurine' was prematurely taken out of the oven and the figurine was still too white which was not the right colour. After that the figurine was returned to the oven and baked too long resulting in a black figurine which was also not the desired colour. It was only after the third try that the proper results were achieved and a red/brown figurine was created. Again we are confronted with the 3 colours black, red and white.

The colours black, red and white and the accompanying numbers 3, 6 and 9 form a triad. They belong together. These are not simple coincidentally chosen numbers. In earlier times one never did anything 'just because'. Everything had a reason, a reason for which we can merely guess the origin and the true definition of it.
