In 2010, Richard Merrick took a family trip to Scotland’s Rosslyn chapel – the enigmatic fifteenth-century temple made famous by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Little did he realize he was about to embark upon an intellectual and personal journey that would lead to the discovery of a real-life lost symbol: the Venus Blueprint. As Merrick digs deeper, he realizes the symbol is an integral part of the design template of some of the most significant religious architecture around the world, and that buildings designed using the Venus Blueprint are endowed with extraordinary acoustics that, when supplied with the right sounds, are capable of harmonizing with Earth’s resonate frequencies and evoking altered states of consciousness. * one that reveals the connection between the world’s most sacred temples and opens up a treasure trove of lost science and ancient secrets. The symbol he discovers: The Venus Blueprint – is based on that planet’s orbital pattern, which takes the shape of a five-pointed star when seen from Earth. -including St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, the Roman Pantheon, the Greek Parthenon, the Temple of Jerusalem, and the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as many buildings designed by the secretive Freemason society. Upon further examination, Merrick is astounded to discover that temples designed using the Venus Blueprint are endowed with extraordinary acoustics that, when supplied with the right tones and frequencies, are capable of harmonizing with Earth’s resonant frequencies and evoking altered states of consciousness. He then proposes a fascinating idea: Could it be that the ancients used these harmonics to enhance entheogenically induced vision – to commune with the divine and liberate the gods within? Supported by an impressive array of historical research and scientific analysis, The Venus Blueprint offers compelling evidence of an ancient lost culture that was both spiritually and scientifically advanced.
