Conrad Yeats, PhD Washington, September 21, 1990
DR. CONRAD YEATS is a
fictional character from the blockbuster novel RAISING ATLANTIS
But he swears what
he’s saying is true!
Washington, D.C., was born in 1790 out of political necessity.
The new republic of the United States needed a capital city to
replace the eight cities which had hosted sessions of the
Continental Congress. So America’s first president, George
Washington, shouldered the delicate task of selecting a site for the
"Federal City" without favoring any one of the 13 former colonies
and offending the rest.
Washington chose a ten-square-mile block of land in the
Columbia, between Maryland and Virginia in 1791. He allegedly chose
it because of its proximity to his own property in the northern part
of Virginia. And today Washington, D.C., named after the "father of
our country," proudly sits astride the banks of the Potomac River.
Or so the history books tell us.
The reality is that while George Washington was indeed the father of
our country, the true father of our nation’s capital was the French
architect Washington commissioned to design the new city.
His name was Pierre-Charles L’Enfant. And it is L’Enfant’s original
1 for what has become known as Washington,D.C., that forms
the basis of this paper.
According to official records of the day, French-born L’Enfant was
an architect and military engineer who joined the Continental Army
and spent the winter of 1777 to 1778 at Valley Forge. There he first
Both men were Freemasons and formed a bond within that secret
Society, the nature of which remains murky. What is clear is that 12
years later, in 1790, Washington entrusted L’Enfant to design the
capital city of the new American republic, which L’Enfant called "Washingtonople."
The name didn’t stick, of course. But much of L’Enfant’s original
vision did, with awesome consequences.

Land of the Freemasons
Founded in England during the eighteenth century, the modern Masonic
order has often figured in conspiracy theories as a secret cabal
that has influenced or controlled history. That’s due in no small
part to its unknown ancient origins, secret rituals, passwords and
What do the Freemasons really stand for? Hard to say these days, but
during the Enlightenment its key ideals were tolerance and political
liberty. Which explains why, by the time of the American Revolution,
nearly 150 lodges existed throughout the colonies.
It is not the intent of this paper to denigrate or deify the
Freemasons (especially since some of them, as this paper will
shortly prove, are most likely members of the federal commission
reviewing this research).
Rather, this section seeks merely to frame the historical mindset of
the architects of Washingtonople circa 1790, namely Washington and
L’Enfant, two of the most prominent Freemasons of their day.
Let’s begin by quoting from what many consider to be the absolute
authority on Freemasonry, which claims the Masons worship "all the
gods of the Ancient Mysteries," specifically "the
Sun, the Moon, and
other bright luminaries of Heaven."
Sun was figuratively said
"to die and be born again" at the Winter Solstice, and
the Masons "personified the Sun and worshipped him under the name of
Another old and venerated Masonic book takes pains to prove that
Freemasonry extends well before 1717, all the way back to the
Ancient Egyptian Mysteries. An entire chapter titled "Sun Worship"
offers a detailed account of the veneration the ancient Egyptians
gave the Sun. Another chapter presents the "mythical story of Osiris,"
because it "formed not only the basis of the Ancient Egyptian
Mysteries" but of Freemasonry as well.
2.- Nobody really knows just how far back in history the Freemasons
go. As early as the 12th century, the Vatican’s Code of Canon Law
prohibited church followers from joining “Masonic sects or any other
similar associations which plot against the church.”
3.- Today, more than 6 million Americans represent nearly 75% of the
total Freemason membership. Known chiefly as a charitable
“country club” network, a typical Masonic lodge has more in common
with Fred Flintstone’s “Moose Lodge” than an evil cabal. But its
traditions of secrecy and rituals persist, along with the
considerable pains the movement takes to trace its origins back to

These Freemason references to Osiris are key, because the celestial
counterpart of Osiris is the constellation of Orion. And it is
three belt stars of Orion to which three monuments of
original vision for the
National Mall are aligned.
More important, as this paper will conclude, three of the
terrestrial landmarks of the National Mall will "lock" with these
three belt stars of Orion at a "Doomsday" date predetermined by the
By following the intricate "map" the Founding Fathers left us, both
above and below the grounds of the National Mall, we will be able
to calculate the date of convergence.
Knowledge of that date will allow us to deduce its celestial
significance and meaning, thus giving us the most of what precious
little time there is to prepare ourselves and our nation for what
The Orion Beltway
"Inside the Beltway," as politicians often refer to life in Washington, D.C., certainly captures L’Enfant’s state of mind when
he envisioned "Washingtonople." Indeed, it could be argued that
L’Enfant suffered from the first documented case of Beltway
That’s because his original plan for the National Mall intended to
do nothing less than recreate Egypt’s Giza plateau in North America
on the banks of the Potomac. And just as the
three pyramids of Giza
are aligned to the belt stars of Orion, so L’Enfant intended three
monuments along the North-South axis of the Mall to do likewise,
while a Sphynx-like structure would anchor the Mall in the East.
Incredibly, as we’ll shortly see, Washington’s and L’Enfant’s dream
has come to pass, this despite the best efforts of Thomas Jefferson
and others to block it. Now "Osiris," as enshrined in the very
architecture of our national landmarks, waits to be reborn in the
21st century in a land known as the United States of America.
4.1 - THE NATIONAL MALL - GIZA
At the heart of L’Enfant’s plan for Washingtonople was his
vision for a sweeping vista known as the National Mall, a plan
that has been carried out to an amazing degree by succeeding
As "America’s Common," the National Mall is the site of four
major "presidential memorials" (the George Washington Monument,
the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and
the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial) and three "war memorials"
(the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, the Korean War Veteran’s
Memorial and the proposed World War II Veteran’s Memorial).
Each of these memorials was or will be built during a different
epoch of American history. Yet all were built on the general
ground site plan first proposed by L’Enfant.
Washington, it should be noted, thought L’Enfant’s plan "too
obvious" and fired him partially into the construction of Washingtonople. He replaced L’Enfant with city surveyor
Ellicott (whose father founded Ellicott City, Maryland).
Ellicott replaced L’Enfant’s name on the design map with his
own, erased the name "Washingtonople" forever, and resumed
construction of Washington, D.C.
Washington preferred merely that the north-south and east-west
axes of the Mall align "at the cardinal points." And, on the
surface, this appears to have happened: we have the White House
to the North, the Jefferson Memorial to the South, the
Capitol Building to the East and the Lincoln Memorial to the
But L’Enfant’s acolytes over the generations have managed to
carry out his vision to a degree never before imagined.

Detail from computer-generated version of Pierre-Charles L’Enfant’s original plan for the capital of the United States,
enhanced to show Thomas Jefferson’s handwritten editorial
changes. Compiled in 1791 under the direction of Pres. George
Washington, this plan still guides the planning of the central
core of Washington, D.C. L’Enfant’s plan was transferred to the
Library of Congress by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1918
and has recently been restored by the Library’s Conservation
Office and sealed in a case filled with argon gas. (Vault Map

4.3 - PORTION OF ORIGINAL L’ENFANT PLAN
Clearly L’Enfant was inspired by the Pyramids of Giza as he
mapped out his designs for three primary monuments in the heart
of his National Mall. These were to be the White House
(I), the Washington Monument (O) and what was to become the
Memorial (S). Instead, the terrestrial markers have been reborn
as the White House, the World War II Veterans Memorial (where
the current Rainbow Fountain Pool resides) and FDR Presidential
Memorial (opened in 1917). Three structures, each completed in
three separate centuries, fulfill his vision, according to

Central to L’Enfant’s 1790 plan for a new federal city was the
executive residence of the president. And indeed, on October 13,
1792, the cornerstone of the Executive Mansion was laid by the
Freemasons and the Commissioners of the District of Columbia.
But the ceremony was not without controversy.
L’Enfant’s plans, approved by Washington, called for a "Presidential
palace" five times the size of the structure we now know as the
White House. Designed for "ages to come," the proposed

northern (easternmost) star of
Orion’s belt, Alnitak.
Republicans, however, led by Jefferson, took issue with the

"Presidential palace" was simply too "royalist."
called for a "President’s house" as more befitting a democracy.
And so the White House was erected on L’Enfant’s site but built
according to the more modest blueprints of James Hoban, an Irish
architect whose design was based on the country houses of the
Work began in 1793 on what is now the north grounds of the White
House. Skilled workers were in short supply, so stonemasons were
recruited in Edinburgh, Scotland (the veritable capital of
Freemasonry at the time), and slaves were hired from their owners.
Egypt had her pyramids; America had her monuments.
By the time Washington left office in 1797, the walls stood and the
roof was framed. Windows were installed and interior walls were
plastered over the next three years until November 1, 1800, when
John Adams, the second President, moved in three months before his
term ended. His prayer for the occasion:
"I Pray Heaven to bestow
the best of blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter
inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this
In spite of its questionable occupants, alterations, altercations
(1812) and constant modernizing, the site and structure of the
House have been faithfully preserved. And, following a precedent set
by Thomas Jefferson, "America’s house" is open to the public.
At least parts of it.
In reality, there is a maze of underground corridors beneath the
presidential compound that is remarkably similar to those found
pyramids at Giza.
Some of these tunnels have become infamous in terms of their utility
for whisking a president (or his love interests) into or out of the
White House for a clandestine rendezvous.
Other tunnels, however, some of which have not been explored (until
now) since 1797, were clearly built for another purpose, the nature
of which is made clear by the direction in which the tunnels travel
and where each terminus lies.
Following is the schematic which I was able to piece together, with
the help (and hindrance) of the Secret Service.
An Obelisk Rises
By design the marble Washington Monument is a classical Egyptian
obelisk and the tallest structure in Washington, D.C. at 555’ 5
1/8". It is also the tallest freestanding stone structure in the
According to Masonic theology,
"the obelisk, resembling the shape of
a flame, caused these monuments to be consecrated to the Sun and to
Fire...the obelisks were erected in honor of the Sun."
This most certainly was NOT what President Thomas Jefferson had in
mind when he marked the site for a proposed "equestrian statue" to
honor George Washington directly south of the White House and west
U.S. Capitol in 1804.
Officially, Jefferson said his marker was intended to serve as the
National Mall’s official point of demarcation with respect to
longitude East and West. But it was really his attempt to thwart any
chance that the Washington Monument would complete the second leg of
L’Enfant’s plan by aligning with the middle star of Orion’s Belt,
Today, however, a towering, 555-foot-tall obelisk casts its shadow
over the National Mall, much like L’Enfant’s grand plan for
America’s capital city.
How did this happen?

6.1 - THE WASHINGTON NATIONAL
On September 26, 1833, almost 30 years after Jefferson had
marked the site for Washington’s memorial, a private group of
citizens arose to form "the Washington National Monument
Society." Many of them were Freemasons, and some of them were
the most influential Americans of their day.
The Society’s first president was Supreme Court Chief Justice
John Marshall, 78, a friend of Washington’s. When
two years later, former President James Madison was named the
new president. With that precedent set, the Society changed
their constitution to include the President of the United States
as their honorary president, a tradition that continues to this
It was the Society that selected (and actually scaled down)
architect Robert Mills’ award-winning design for an
And on July 4, 1848,
"under a clear sky in the presence of the
President of the United States and virtually
every notable of the government... the cornerstone was set with
masonic ceremonies by the Grand Lodge of
Masons of the District of Columbia."
In fact, almost 20,000 people gathered around the designated
mound for the laying of the cornerstone. Among
those attending were President James K. Polk, George Washington
Parke Custis (Martha Washington’s
grandson), Dolly Madison, and Mrs. Alexander Hamilton. Also
present were James Buchanan, Andrew
Johnson and a little-known congressman named Abraham Lincoln.
One of the principal addresses of the occasion was given by
Benjamin B. French, Grand Master,
the same masonic apron that Washington wore at the laying of the
cornerstone of the U.S. Capitol. In his
address French referred to the masonic master’s chair used by Washington as Worshipful Master of Washington-Alexandria, and the gavel used by the first President to set
the cornerstone of the Capitol, in the custody
of Potomac Lodge #5 of Georgetown, D.C. Both of these were on
display for the occasion along with other Washignton masonic relics."
Interestingly enough, that mound upon which the
Monument was built was NOT the site Thomas
Jefferson had so painstakingly marked off in 1804.
Rather, according to documents of the era, the Washington
Monument was forced to a new construction site,
"due to foundation problems caused by the marshy, damp soil upon
which all of Washington, D.C., was built."
And where would this new site be?
Interestingly, the Society selected a site "slightly west of
Jefferson’s original intended position," directly in line
with L’Enfant’s original vision and the middle star of Orion’s
Belt, Alnilam. But by 1848, when construction on
the Washington monument began, the site had turned into a marsh.
The Society had no choice but to move
the location for the monument "a few hundred feet to the
So Jefferson had apparently prevailed. [For another 150 years,
Slowly the obelisk began to take shape, rising higher and higher
toward the sky. Finally, after various financial setbacks, the
Civil War and the transfer of the monument and grounds over to
the United States government, the Washington Monument was
finished, courtesy of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Finally, a 3,300-pound capstone was placed at the top and
crowned with a nine-inch-tall pyramid made of aluminum, a rare
metal in those days. Engraved on one side of the aluminum apex
are the words: LAUS DEO.
According to official records,
"The dedication was held in cold
winter on February 21, 1885. Again the Grand Lodge of Masons of
the District of Columbia participated using an adaptation of the
cornerstone ceremony they had used in 1848. Grand Master Myron
M. Parker gave an oration, and again the Washington masonic
relics were displayed and Washington’s Masonic career was
The official dedication celebration, which included fireworks,
was held the day before Washington’s birthday in 1885. But it
wasn’t until October 1888 that the monument was officially open
to the public.
6.2 - THE MASONIC MEMORIAL STONES
In that three-year period between the dedication ceremonies and
the admission of the general public, work was still being done
on the interior -- work that would complete underground what had
already been completed in the heavens.
Officially, that work completed the 897-step stairwell to the
observation deck at the 500-foot level, as well as the
conversion of the elevator platform, used in the construction of
the obelisk, into a steam-hoisted passenger car.
12.- Outfitted with seats and ornate walls, the elevator took
about 10 to 12 minutes to ascend and descend from the top. By
the time it
was fully operational, Congress then shifted control of the
monument and its staffing to the War Department, with the
National Monument Society acting as advisers. On October 9,
1888, the Washington Monument was officially opened to the
But something else was going on as well, as the following
official documentation from the Department of Interior observes:
"The Washington National Monument Society, in charge of fund-
raising for the Monument, sensed the importance of Washington’s masonic membership and great pride that masons felt across the
country for their brother, Washington, the father of our
country. The Society in 1851 and 1853 solicited members of the
Masonic Order nationally through the Grand Lodges, to make
contributions to the construction of the monument.... The Society
solicited the Masons, the Odd Fellows, the Sons of Temperance
and other fraternal orders as well."
In all, 193 memorial stones adorn the interior of the monument.
Over the years the stones have been damaged by moisture and
vandalism.13 More than a few have interesting stories.
View all the individual masonic memorial stones at:
For example, the first Masonic stone ascending the Monument is
that of the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia at the 50
foot landing. As the Department of Interior notes,
earliest Masonic contribution was no doubt tied into the
cornerstone-laying ceremony where the Grand Lodge of D.C.
Another one of the commemorative stones was a block of marble
originally from the Temple of Concord in Rome. This stone was a
gift from Pope Pius IX. On March 6, 1854, the stone was stolen
by masked thieves and either broken into pieces, or dumped into
the Potomac River. Whatever its fate, it was never found and no
arrests were made.
Then there’s the peculiar lore surrounding the California stone,
which arrived in Washington on August 2, 1860, and was
ultimately embedded in the west wall at the 120-foot level. That
stone, in fact, was a replacement for a previous "Atlantis
Stone" that was recovered from the bottom of the ocean and
contained mysterious crystal stars. Records from the
Department describe the crystals as "a kind of quartz, but not
13.- PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Since Dr. Yeats filed this report, the
Washington Monument has undergone an extensive four-year
“renovation” and is scheduled to reopen to the public on July 19, 2001.
A key component of the project has been the restoration of the
memorial stones. A new state-of-the-art elevator cab will enable
visitors riding down from the 500-foot observation level to look
through windows and observe several of the 193 restored
commemorative stones on the interior walls of the Monument.
14.- In 1985 a ceremony was held for the replacement of the “Pope
Stone” that was lost in 1854. The new stone bears the
inscription: A ROMA AMERICAE.
What was this "stone with crystal stars" doing in the hands of
the War Department? And whatever happened to it?
The answer may well rest in a most unusual place.
6.3 - THE ULTIMATE MAP ROOM
The Washington Monument is in fact the ultimate "map room"
to the "City of Washingtonople," a central repository that for
the trained eye lays out in great detail the secret design of
the city. And this map of the city is built into the monument

Not only can a superior within the Society survey the cardinal
points of the National Mall – North, South, East and West – by
day or night from the observation deck. He or she can also
follow the direction of the 193 masonic stones like a treasure
map to coordinates above and below the city of Washington, D.C.
It’s a treasure trail that ends in a never-before-revealed
corridor deep beneath the north grounds of the White House.
The Final Alignment
With the establishment of Washington, D.C. in the 18th century and
the completion of the Washington Monument in the 19th century, a
new group was formed at the dawn of the 20th century to extend
L’Enfant’s vision for the National Mall into the 21st century.
This group was known as the McMillian Park Commission. And in the
decades that followed, all subsequent developments and park master
plans as well as general management plans under the National Park
Service, National Capital Parks-Central have successfully adhered to
the general principles of the 1901-02 McMillian Plan.
Among those developments were the construction of the Lincoln and
Jefferson Memorials. With their construction, the American republic
finally had the White House in the North and the
in the South, and the U.S. Capitol Building in the East and the
Lincoln Memorial in the West.
But it’s two other monuments, currently on the drawing boards, that
will, if erected, complete L’Enfant’s vision for three terrestrial
landmarks to align with their celestial counterparts, the
stars of Orion.
These proposed landmarks are the Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Presidential Memorial and the World War II Veterans Memorial.
FDR Presidential Memorial
15 was authorized on September
5, 1959, and is to be situated along the Tidal Basin near the
National Mall. This location, as it turns out, is aligned to the
southern (westernmost) star of Orion’s Belt, Mintaka.
Lawrence Halprin’s design for the memorial, encompassing 7.5 acres in a
park-like setting, not only fits perfectly within the 1901 McMillian
plan but also solves the most problematic portion of L’Enfant’s
original 1790 vision.
That’s because in 1790, well before the
Basin was built up, cleaned up and landscaped, any terrestrial
marker would have been underwater.
The proposed World War II Veteran’s Memorial, meanwhile, is to be
erected at what is currently the Rainbow Pool, at the eastern end of
the Reflecting Pool between the Washington Monument and
Memorial. This placement corrects the problems caused by the
misalignment of the Washington Monument, again due to the inability
of the technology of the era to overcome the geological situation.
15.- PUBLISHER’S NOTE. The FDR Presidential Memorial was in fact
completed and dedicated to the American public by President William
Jefferson Clinton on May 2, 1997.
The site of the Rainbow Pool is directly aligned with the middle
star of Orion’s Belt, Alnilak.
And so, more than 200 years after its birth, L’Enfant’s plan is on
the verge of being fulfilled at the dawn of America’s third century.
The White House, World War II Memorial and
FDR Memorial will
complete the mission that the White House, Washington monument
and Jefferson Memorial could not.
The site plan for the World War II Veterans Memorial will no doubt
prompt protests, seeing as it will obstruct the view between the
Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial.
Which is why its design will most likely and cleverly echo
Stonehenge. How it will be disguised, I do not know, although fifty
pillars representing the fifty states in an open circle is most
likely, as this will play to the aesthetics of the open mall.
Like previous monument constructions, the WWII memorial will endure
the harsh glare of public scrutiny. But in the end, after many
years, it will rise and fulfill its destiny as the final piece of L’Enfant’s great puzzle of the cosmos. And the countdown will have
If indeed the Giza necropolis has been recreated on the banks of the
Potomac in the form of America’s National Mall, then one final,
vital landmark must still be discussed:
the Sphynx, which anchors
the east end of the
Giza plateau. In terms of the
that structure can only be the U.S. Capitol Building.
The subject of the U.S. Capitol Building and
what lies beneath its
corridors are beyond the scope of this paper and better suited for
in-depth analysis in the future.
For now it is enough to say that the structure, the second oldest in
Washington, D.C., is not part of the Orion alignment but does have
another vital function as the anchor at the East end of the Mall.
Its cornerstone, like that of the White House, was laid by
George Washington during a Masonic ceremony on September 17, 1793.
And it took almost 43 years and one war to complete.
Home to the legislative branch of government, the building houses
the chambers of the House of Representatives (second floor, south
wing) and the Senate (second floor, north wing). Over the years it
has undergone numerous design revisions and renovations. Additions
include not only electricity and fireproofing but also a new dome
and the introduction of the Statue of Freedom.
It is this bronze Statue of Freedom – the Capitol’s "capstone," if
you will – that yields the most intriguing questions. It is the
crowning feature of the dome of the United States Capitol.
The statue is a classical female figure of Freedom wearing flowing
draperies. Her right hand rests upon the hilt of a sheathed sword;
the left holds a laurel wreath of victory and the shield of the
United States with thirteen stripes. Her helmet is encircled by
stars and features a crest composed of an eagle’s head, feathers and
talons, a reference to the costume of Native Americans.
What is she looking at, and what does it mean?
One clue is its ancient Egyptian counterpart in Giza, the Sphinx.
It, too, gazes east at the rising sun. More specifically, the
lion-like statue also gazes at its own terrestrial counterpart, the
constellation of Leo, on the summer solstice once every 26,000
Is there a similar celestial counterpart and date in time for the
Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol Building? A date with
destiny? A date foreseen by the Founding Fathers? A date that’s just
around the corner?
The answers lie in a previously
undisclosed tunnel beneath the
•••••• wing, at the end of which is
The Cosmic Countdown
Regardless of particulars, the symbol of the Statue of Freedom
recalls certain Freemason and Native American beliefs that help
pinpoint the date in time that L’Enfant and our Founding Fathers
considered to be America’s date with destiny.
According to ancient Aztec cosmology, there were four Suns prior to
our own. Each culminated in a great annihilation followed by the
gradual re-emergence of mankind.
The Hopi of Arizona are distant cousins of
the Aztecs. Some of these
Native American tribal leaders believe we’re walking in the last
days of the Fifth Sun and that the end of the world is coming soon,
in the form of a geological cataclysm.
Indeed, we’ve seen how the White House, the proposed
World War II
Veterans Memorial and the FDR Presidential Memorial are
astronomically aligned to the three belt stars of Orion.
We’ve also seen how the master site plan for these landmarks and the
entire city of "Washingtonople" was designed in 1790 by Pierre-Charles L’Enfant, a French architect and Freemason handpicked
by George Washington, himself a Freemason.
Now it’s time to examine the great purpose behind it all, because
shortly the ground-sky images and the belt stars will
lock for the
only time in 26,000 years.
will this date of convergence occur?
Earlier in this paper, we cited authoritative sources saying that
the Freemasons worshipped the Sun and other heavenly bodies.
Specifically, the Sun (personified as Osiris / Orion) was said to

That’s on December 21 on the Christian calendar.
We’ve also shown how the Statue of Freedom atop the Capitol Building
occupies the same alignment and function as the Sphinx on the Giza
And just as the Sphinx found itself staring at its mirror image in
the stars in the form of the constellation Leo around 10,500 BC, so
the American Statue of Freedom will find herself staring at her
celestial counterpart come 2012, the constellation of Aquarius, the

the constellation of Aquarius in the East, and we will have moved
from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.

as America’s date with destiny.
It is also, of course, the end of the Mayan calendar, which, like
the Aztec "Suns," spells out previous "creations" or "worlds."
According to the Mayans, there have been four "creations," and on
Dec. 21, 2012, we will enter the "fifth."
Regardless of which particular "Sun" or "Creation" or "Age" it might
be, 2012 will be an interesting, arresting time of transition.
Indeed, Dec. 21 falls between the election of our President on Nov.
7 and his swearing-in during the month of January 2013.
Will there be a swearing-in?
What does it all mean?
And will there be a morning in America on Dec. 22, 2012, and, if so,
what kind of morning will it be?
Sun and that the end of the world is coming soon, in the form of a
geological cataclysm. Indeed, we’ve seen how the White House, the
proposed World War II Veterans Memorial and the presidential
memorial are astronomically aligned to the three belt stars of
We’ve also seen how the master site plan for these landmarks and the
entire city of "Washingtonople" was designed by
a French architect and Freemason handpicked by George
himself a freemason.
Now it’s time to examine the great purpose behind it all, because
shortly the ground-sky images and the belt stars will lock for the
only time earlier in this paper, we cited authoritative sources
saying that the Freemasons worshipped the Sun and other heavenly
bodies. Specifically, the Sun (personified as Osiris / Orion) was
said to die and be born again at the Winter Solstice.
