Sacred Sites: Deciphering The Code

by Carl Munck

About 20 years ago, I embarked upon a sacred journey to figure out what the pyramids were all about.

The world’s pyramids number in the thousands, and they survive on all continents except Antarctica.[1] I wanted to know, with so many archeologists about, why it was that the pyramids had not been explained satisfactorily.

Historians and archeaologists call the pyramids “royal tombs,” and conduct unending quests for mummies and hidden treasure. But the fact is that no one has yet found the body of any Pharaoh in any of Egypt’s 85 known pyramids. The treasure hunters are certainly gathering a wealth of museum fodder, but they are no closer to finding the real reasons for pyramids than they were when archeology began.

To me, because of their 3-dimensional geometrics, the pyramids convey mathematical order. And as any professional scientist will agree, numbers and math constitute a universal language. So might the pyramids’ mathematical order not be a language whose intent was to convey some message to us from a time before time?

But how is one to read numbers as language?

Decrypting the Pyramids: Code-1

The meaning one can read in numbers depends on how such numbers are delivered.

Our limited use of numbers and math came from Pythagoras, Eudoxus, Euclid, and Archimedes over 2,000 years ago, and what they gave us has changed very little since then. Except in the Bible, the concept of “zero” was unknown prior to A.D. 400. The use of decimal points is only 500 years old. And Johannes Kepler (1576 – 1630) was apparently the first to use commas to set off decimal orders.

It’s not much. But with that little bit, we have managed to walk on the moon. Yet our math is still somewhat of the Stone Age variety. Indeed, the so-called Arabic numbers we use today didn’t find their way into Western mathematical application until the Middle Ages. We’re way behind.

So what was used before. . .?

CAHOKIA, Illinois

Monk's moundThis was where I started my sacred journey. I felt that the arithmetical arrangement of the mounds at Cahokia was just too coincidental to be coincidental. There was something awesome going on with the pyramids and mounds at Cahokia, and nobody seemed to have noticed. If this was all just some Cahokia fluke, I figured that it shouldn’t take long to discover this. What I found, however, could not possibly have been a fluke.

Archeologists tell us that America’s mound center at Cahokia, Illinois, was built between A.D. 900 and 1200. The two largest “Indian” mounds at this site are Monks Mound and the Rattlesnake (or Harding) Mound.

Most curious is the latitude of the Rattlesnake Mound, at exactly 380 degrees 38 minutes 38.8 seconds north of the Equator. An interesting sequence of numbers, is it not? But are those repeating 38’s a coincidence? Or were the builders trying to tell us something?

Then, exactly one minute of latitude to the north of that is America’s largest pyramid, Monks Mound, with a curious terrace arrangement offset to its northeast corner. Why was it placed just there, so that the highest terrace situates on our modern USGS topographical maps at exactly 38 degrees 39 minutes 40 seconds of latitude?

This was A.D. 1200. How did the Indians know about modern maps? Is this 38-39-40 sequence, too, just a wild coincidence? Or are we looking at another kind of mathematics — something which predates the earliest mathematicians of recorded history?

The more I looked at the possibility of coincidence at Cahokia, the less likely it seemed.

And moving on from Cahokia, the more pyramids I examined, the more order I found. Everywhere!

EL-KULA, Egypt

Next came Egypt, the world’s Pyramid Central. My intent was to find another terraced pyramid, apply our modern maps to it, and see how it might speak to us.

El KulaThe El-Kula pyramid is well south of Cairo, in Upper Egypt, a full day’s journey south of the major pyramid sites at Giza and Saqqara.

Even Egyptologists ignore this one. When they opened it up in their quest for the usual museum fodder, there was no formal entrance, no burial chamber, no sarcophagus, no mummies. Nothing. Just a solid masonry structure.

Purpose unknown? To archeology, perhaps. But not to archaeocryptography.

It’s a grid marker, and one which is quite self-explanatory, i.e., it actually explains to us where it is. It’s latitude and longitude, in other words, are encoded into its dimensions, facets, and proportions:

Let’s look at El-Kula according to the principles of archaeocryptography:

  • As Ahmed Fakhry found, El Kula’s base is a perfect square. Setting aside the impossibility that such an edifice could have been constructed by a “primitive” civilization, let us take the mathematical concept of “square” as our first item of information. Translating this into our Code, we can imagine that we are going to “square” some number to see what happens when we do that.



  • El-Kula has four sides; it’s not round or oval or pentagonal. So another possible piece of information is the number 4, another possible multiplier in our Code.



  • Next, there are 3 individual slopes on each of its 4 sides, a total of 3 x 4, or 12 slopes. And each slope has 3 terraces, a total of 3 x 12, or 36 terraces. So another possible multiplicand is 36.



  • Let’s see what happens when we square the number of terraces (because the pyramid is “square”) and then multiply by 4 (because it has 4 sides). Thirty-six squared is 1296, times 4 is 5,184. Now, that number just happens to be the multiplicand of El-Kula’s actual latitude north of the equator, which is 25 degrees 7 minutes 29.622857 seconds. If you multiply those three numbers together, you arrive at exactly 5,184 (actually, it’s 5183.999975, which is almost perfect to 5,184).



  • The number 36 we arrived at above has a dual function. Not only does it guide us to El-Kula’s latitude, but to its longitude, as well. For if we take the Great Pyramid at Giza as our prime meridian, instead of Greenwich, England, El Kula’s pyramid will be exactly 01 degree 36 minutes east of it. As 01 degree x 36 minutes equals 36 in the multiplication system we have found (36 x 1 = 36), El Kula’s pyramid proves itself to have been a marker to a very ancient geographical grid system.

With only two examples so far, we can begin to create the hypothesis that there exists a purposeful relationship between the forms of ancient structures and where they were placed; that while Egyptologists tear the pyramids apart looking for answers within them, we may instead conclude about the pyramids what many great minds have observed before: that the best place to hide something is right out in the open, in plain view.

There’s more. El-Kula’s grid point in this matrix system is 144, found by dividing its grid latitude, 5184, by its grid longitude related to Giza, or 36. In the ancient (and now repressed) science of Gematria, 144 has the word-meaning of Light.

This Light number is doubly encoded at El-Kula. We don’t actually have to divide the above grid values to find it. All we need to do is take another look at the pyramid itself: a total of 12 slopes on a squared base. The square of 12 is 144.

Classical archeologists place El-Kula in the Third Dynasty, c. 2664 – 2615 BC, but this date is not very likely. Formal written history makes no allowance for such exquisite knowledge of mathematics and geodetics at that time. We have to assume that El-Kula antedates the dogmas. It’s just too intelligent.

Was there such advanced knowledge in remote antiquity? If there was, then the biblical verse at Ecclesiastes 1:9 has some validity: “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be: and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”


KukulkanFrom El-Kula, we go west across the Atlantic Ocean to the land of the Mayans, specifically to Chichen Itza in the Yucatan. There, we will examine Kukulkan, another terraced pyramid.

Historians date the place somewhere between the 7th and 10th centuries A.D. But those dates are obviously too conservative, because everything here, also, was located with respect to the Prime Meridian at Giza.

I am not alone in believing that Kukulkan belongs in remote antiquity. Although his estimates have been ignored by academia, Colonel James Churchward, author of The Lost Continent of Mu, believed that Kukulkan was more on the order of not one but nine thousand years old (e.g. c. 7000 BC). And the recent discovery of Lemurian temples submerged off of Okinawa are vindicating Churchwards views.

Kukulkan displays the same logic that we find at El-Kula. We need only gather the numbers presented, assemble them into a simple formula, and multiply.

  • Four corners: our first number is 4.



  • Four staircases, and ninety-one steps on each staircase: 91 x 4 = 364 plus the top platform = 365. Our second number is 365. (Some believe that these 365 steps relate to the 365-day year, and they do. But they have another function as well.)
  1. 4 corners x 4 staircases x 9 terraces x 365 steps = 52,560: this large figure represents Kukulkan’s grid longitude west of the Great Pyramid(!!):

    119 degrees x 42 minutes x 10.516 seconds = 52,558.68 (again, we are dealing with insufficient decimal places in the base numbers to arrive at the exact number; but it is our own calculations that are in error here, not the placement of the pyramid itself!).

That number represents a global positioning that would require heavy-duty science, considering that there’s an entire ocean separating Kukulkan from Giza.

Now, let us ask why the architects at Kukulkan focused our attention on the length of the year.

Today, the year is 365.2422 days long. Fifteen hundred years ago, the Mayans had it pegged at 365.2420 days. But another Code figure I have found [in the Great Pyramid–ed.] relates to a time when the length of the year was 365.020081 days. Might this not tell us when the pyramid system was first designed?

Let’s put this number to the test — against the 90-degree angles (which are emphasized on the pyramid when it’s seen from above). When we divide the Code-1 length of the year, 365.020081, by 90, the result is 4.0557786777.

Anyone recognize this number? I didn’t, either. Not at first.

But then I had the National Geodetic Service calculate the surface distance between Kukulkan and Giza’s Great Pyramid. That figure came back to me as 7,123.85 miles (that’s statute miles, not kilometers).

7,123.85 miles has a tangent of 4.055. Compare this to the 4.0557786 seen above: 4.0557786 is the tangent of 7,123.85063 miles — a much more precise figure than even the Geodetic Service was able to come up with.

Perhaps we can retire our expensive mapping satellites. Someone has beaten us to it.

Code-2: 3D Mapping of the Sacred Sites

Tangents. . .? Were the pyramid builders really that well versed in the exotic realms of math? Oh yes, most certainly.

You see, there are up and down sides to the Code. As you’ve seen here, Code-1 was limited to flat-map analysis, 2-dimensional only. But Code-2 takes us into the third dimension, and its application is not limited to the pyramids. Native American mounds also are involved. And it’s also not limited to well-known sites. Occasionally, even run-of-the-mill burial mounds will respond to this ancient order.

For example, the Campbell Mound in Columbus, Ohio, appears to be an unremarkable, flat-topped, conical mound, a modest 20 feet in height and 200 feet in diameter.

Of no particular interest to archeology, it’s just another burial mound.

But let’s look at how the tangents of archaeocryptography apply to it:

  • Height, 20 feet; Tangent: 0.363970234.
  • Elevation, 740 feet. Tangent? Exactly the same: 0.363970234.

What is the chance that the tangent of two numbers chosen by accident will “coincide” to nine decimal places? Somewhere in between zero and none. In this case, before the first basket of dirt was dumped at the site, the Campbell Mound had a predetermined height, a height which was directly keyed to its elevation above sea level.

I will shortly release a book on the 3-dimensional codes found at Sacred Sites. It will be titled CODE-2, The Science of the Next Paradigm. Watch for it.


Carl Munck, the world’s first archaeocryptographer, spent 20 years in the U. S. Air Force and another decade in the railroad industry before beginning his search for answers to the unsolved mysteries of Sacred Sites. In doing this, he says, he adheres to no dogma — only evidence.

To invent the science of archaeocryptography, it was necessary for Munck to study cartography, global positioning, archaeology, oceanography, catastrophism, volcanism, paleomagnetism, ancient metrology, and some of the more exotic realms of mathematics.

Today, with several books and videos to his credit, he is retired, but remains active with research and site analysis, both at his desk and in the field.

 The Tangents in Joe’s Circle

While new to Joe perhaps, the tangent values, 0.726542528 and 3.077683537 are ‘old hat’ around here and I have been through it before. For those who might have missed it, notice that the tangents on Joe’s circle share both plus and minus values.

What do such opposing numbers suggest?

A simple table for sine waves . . .




We can do exactly the same thing with his other numbers 36, 144, 216, etc. all of which share plus/minus tangents of 0.726542528 . . .



+ 0.726542528     36        216         396        576       756

– 0.726542528          144        324         504        684       864


Gematrian numbers therefore are no longer a mystery. Now we see why they HAD to be: they encoded tangents which were VERY well ordered.

Well, it all makes very good sense, but how are we supposed to use it over here on our side of time? To what must we apply it?

The global matrix, of course.

I will explain it in better detail in a future CODE annual, but in brief, the positioning of these ancient pyramids and allied earthworks present us with mathematically arranged “KITES” which guide us to certain important ‘holy’ sites known by these long lost people. Among them is a place we know today as Warm Mineral Springs, Florida.





Warm Mineral Springs in the Global Matrix System

113 degrees 23 minutes 37.59″ WEST GIZA – (97716.09785)

C.I.  = 34.37746771


27 degrees 03 minutes 35.09″ N.

Notice that the matrix C.I. of Warm Mineral Springs is a mathematical constant in that its value exactly equals 3/5ths of 57.29577951 radian deg.

Is it only coincidence that the C.I. or this body of water, with its reported healing properties, replies to the geographical positioning of some of our largest aboriginal monuments? Or could it be that this powerful natural spring was considered to be of such importance to the ancients that it was PART OF THE REASON WHY the Pyramid Matrix was arranged in the first place?

O.K. Now, lets apply our gematrian numbers to Warm Mineral Springs:

WMSX (34.37746771) X PI = 108

A direct link with the gematrian realm!

Then, simply apply our basic numbers to the puzzle. You know, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on…Only make them pi-multiples…

Pi,  2 pi,  3 pi,  4 pi, 5 pi, 6 pi, etc.

Now we are treated to:

WMSX  x Pi = 108

              x 2pi = 216

              x 3pi = 324

              x 4pi = 432

              x 5pi = 540 (Tangent – 0 )

  x 6pi = 648…

MORE gematrian numbers, stacked up like cordwood. What do they show us?

Apply them to their respective SINE charts, for example the one shown previously.


Tangent of: +0.7265425             216                        756                       1296

Tangent of: -0.7265425                       324                      864                           1404 


Notice that we have a completely new sine wave. A second new sine wave flows from the first scale (tan. 3.077) peaking at 108, 432, etc.

Since sine waves are most generally indicative of energy waves, might these not indicate THEIR way of READING the natural energies at Warm Mineral Springs, hence, THEIR way of TRANSMITTING ITS DATA TO US!

The math certainly suggests it. The gematrian sacred numbers, pi, WMS’S C.I. in the Matrix and our own basic numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on. They have furnished everything we need to put the puzzle together. All we have to do it apply it.

And it WORKS.

One other truism I should mention here concerning our basic numbers  is that not only do we find them encoded at Giza, but elsewhere besides, for example, over at Stonehenge in England.  There is such to be learned there when one is careful to pay attention.

The stoneworks at Stonehenge, as we know, represents the THIRD stage of construction at this site.The first stage of construction was the great circular earthworks and all the so-called “aubrey Holes”. These survive today as depressions in the ground where the buildings once stood 58 large logs on end for something we moderns like to refer to as a ‘WOODHENGE’.

As we know, 56 of these poles comprised a great circle at the inner face of the banked earthen circle. We can see that, so it’s true, right?

Not quite.





Stonehenge, Phases I, II and III



Of those 56 postholes, only 54 stand next to the earthen bank itself.

There are two separate messages here.

54 postholes face the bank.

4 others stand in the open, clear of the earthworks.





Two messages, 54 and 4..

Here we will ask a question of ’54’..

(1) there are 54 Aubrey holes facing the earthworks.

(2) They are arranged to show a 360 degree circle. that gives us ’54 and ‘360’.

(3) The GRID latitude of the complex, both original (Phase I) and final (Phase II) is now known to be 21,600. Get out your calculator and find…  21600 / 360 / 54 = 1.11111111

Since we also know this to be…  1.111111112 = 1.23456789 – the pattern for our virtually universal base number system, we can acknowledge how Stonehenge likewise encoded it for us.

Always pay CLOSE attention to what the ancient buildings provide.

What of the other four Aubrey Holes?

Test them too, to find…

54 x 4 = 216

Another figure now familiar, a sacred number from the gematrian realm.

We can find the pattern for our base number system again, over at Newark, Ohio.

Again, it comes from an ancient earth-circle, namely, the one which is attached to the great Octagon.

As seen in the CODE 1994, the GRID Longitude of this circle is 216,000, but, there were no postholes in Newark’s earthworks, so what are we to ‘count’?  If we can’t find postholes to count, count something else. In the case of Newark, apply the earthworks themselves.
