The Speed of Light Code

The Speed of Light Code (2017)

Rand Flem-Ath

Scientists at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) comb the heavens in a quest to find universal constants like ф (1.618…) and π (3.1415…). These ‘Civilization Signature Constants’ (CSC) are fundamental to SETI because such numbers are highly unlikely to occur at random. If a message came from a distant star system printing out ф, or π digits, then SETI would cry Eureka! If that message contained two universal constants, then SETI might even declare contact!

But what if we look at the problem from another angle? What if we back-engineer SETI’s strategy? Rather than pointing our instruments at the sky maybe we should be looking at our own planet to determine if a Super-Intelligent-Entity-or-Entities (SIEE) has/have already left ф (1.618…) and π (3.1415…) footprints upon Earth.

The idea that the speed of light might contain a code seems odd at first. But that’s only because we are accustomed to measuring c (the speed of light) using the metric system. In 1975, the speed of light was determined at 299,792,458 meters per second with a measurement uncertainty of 4 parts per billion. 1983, the measurement uncertainty was corrected by redefining the meter as being 1/299,792,458 of the distance light travels in one second. The number 299,792,458 has nothing special about it. It seems random, but look what happens when we measure c (speed of light) with a different measuring tool, nautical miles (M). The speed of light travels at 161,874.977 nautical miles per second. We call this c/M.

The first four digits of c/M are 1618 which is ф (phi) packed right into c. Two universal constants in one set of numbers. Coincidence? Maybe? But what if this same message (ф combined with c) was coming from outer space? How would we react?

The ф in c is not the only part of this ancient cryptogram. Let’s look at the next three digits (749). When we divide 21600 nautical miles (the circumference of the Earth) into c/M we get 7.494211898148148. In other words, in one second light travels approximately 7.49 times the circumference of the Earth. So, the 749 in c/M maybe a confirmation (redundancy) that we’re dealing with the speed of light as measured by our planet’s circumference.

So, if 1618 is ф and 7.49 are consistent with a cryptogram, what then of the 77? I suggest it is a check digit, something that has only recently become a part of 21st century civilization. We use check digits because we use computers. For inventory purposes, numbers like 4977, suggest a confirmation that c/M is not random. The 4977 in c/M is a check digit because 7 times 7 is 49. I suggest that the 77 in c/M is a kind of exclamation mark meaning: it’s real. You’re on the right track to cracking the cryptogram.

 c/M is an ancient cryptogram

c = the speed of light

M = nautical miles

/s = per second

c = 161874.977M/s

1.618 = ф

7.49 = the number of earth circumferences light travels in one second

77 = check digit (49 = 7 x 7)

So how did this come about? I suggest that SIEE has/have tuned the velocity of the Earth’s spin to print out an ancient cryptogram using nautical miles as the key. SIEE left us a message in the very spin of our planet. SIEE then set about the task of insuring that humanity would use a specific time system otherwise the code would never be broken. SIEE did this, I suggest, by imparting to the Sumerians a time system (24 hours, 60 minutes and 60 seconds) that ultimately would provide the suitable measurement of one second.

10ф can also be used for the velocity of the Earth’s orbit when measured in nautical miles.

Earth’s Orbital Velocity

M/s = nautical miles per second

15.85M/s = minimum

16.07M/s = mean

16.10M/s = midpoint

16.18M/s = 10фM/s

16.1874977M/s = 1/10,000th the speed of light

16.35M/s = maximum

Each year, the Earth’s orbital velocity varies from a low of 15.85M/s to a high of 16.35M/s. There are days when our orbital velocity produces the universal constant ф (10фM/s). And other days when our planet’s speed passes through 1/10,000th of c (16.1875977M/s).

An Earth that has been “tuned” to produce universal constants challenges the prevailing paradigm that our planet’s spin and orbital velocity are simply the residue effects of the creation of our solar system. In that model, the Earth’s orbital and spin velocity should be a random number, not ordered, and especially not ordered by universal constants like c and ф.
