Visiting from Manchester, England, during November, David Dickinson will give a presentation on sacred geometry, earth energy grids and ley lines at 7 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 19) in the Deepwater Theater
Dickinson is a frequent visitor to the United States in his capacity as a founding director in 2008 of the information strategy company Unlike Minds Limited.
He is known in the UK for his presentations on these subjects using richly animated computer graphics to explain these fascinating subjects.
Dickinson developed his understanding and expertise while working on disclosing the secrets hidden in plain sight in The Gorton Monastery, built by Franciscan friars in 1863, in his hometown of Manchester, England.
A trustee of the Monastery, he has been involved in its conservation and he has gradually disclosed a rich tapestry of celestial (stars) and terrestrial (earth) alignments, hidden in plain sight by the builders. Using computer software, over time he projected these lines around the world.
According to Wikipedia, ley lines are apparent ancient, straight “paths” in the landscape which are believed to have spiritual significance and along which man-made structures can often be found. The term was coined in 1921 by amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins in his books “Early British Trackways” and “The Old Straight Track.”
Dickinson discovered that theses lines passed with remarkable precision through highly important sites, some of which are on the eastern seaboard of the United States, including the Washington Monument and the dead center of the Pentagon.
“There is nothing new in such alignments,” Dickinson says. “For example, a straight line from the center of Mecca to the obelisk in St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican passes through the very center of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. While this might be dismissed as just coincidence, bear in mind that Einstein once said, ‘coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.’”
Dickinson went on to discover that the sacred geometry described by Plato, as well as being found all over the Monastery, was referred to in indigenous cultures throughout the world. In the United States, the same sacred geometry can be found in the art and dances of the Hopi and Sioux people.
Dickinson is known in the UK for similar presentations using richly animated computer graphics to explain these fascinating subjects.
He is currently working on a major initiative to develop the next generation of societal informatics platform in partnership with the World Health Innovation Summit and parties in Santa Monica and San Francisco.
He also will share his understanding of subtle energy in Ocracoke, and for those people interested in exploring the phenomenon for themselves, dowsing rods will be provided.
There is no admissions charge, but a donation to benefit Ocracoke Alive will be happily accepted.
