Book Description

29 May 2012
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 know he was about to embark upon an intellectual and personal journey that would lead to the discovery of a real-life lost symbol—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. As Merrick digs deeper, he realizes the Venus Blueprint was an integral part of the design template of some of the most significant religious architecture around the world--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 visions—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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure and Discovery 14 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
What I like most about this book is the author's ability to combine the complexities of geometry and astronomy with a wonderful sense of adventure and discovery. Here we can explore both time and space, always with the feeling that there is something magical just beyond our reach. As with all the books I really enjoy, I was sorry to get to the last page.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 21 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback
What I chiefly dislike about this book is the style of writing. Speculation is expressed in the language of fact within a few paragraphs of introducing an idea, and opinions are sometimes called evidence. Also the author tends to ascribe motives to others without evidence.

I am unsure about some of the calculations the theory of a universal blueprint is based on, because for starters I think there must be some doubt that the fifteenth century Scottish Masonic Temple at Rosslyn near Edinburgh would have been constructed using the English unit of a foot, and here I don't mean the Imperial Measure introduced in 1824.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent exploration. 4 Jun 2012
By ChaldeanMagi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Venus Blueprint is an observatory based writing with scientific and mathmatically/geometrically supported concepts. This is a read for any one who is interested in cosmology, ontology, ancient history, etc. Richard Merrick writes in a style that is descriptive and technical; providing venue for both the laymen and the scholar to arrive at an understanding of his concepts. Richard Merrick does not skimp on his research and he his competent in many disciplines. Music theorists will get more of the technical side, while laymen will still get the concepts. The book is a refreshing view of human history, music, religions, and cosmology; all frozen in the Architecture of a Chapel in Scotland with so many secrets to tell...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Venus Blueprint 17 Jun 2012
By perthshire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have never written a review before but this book has broken boundaries and I want others to cross it and enter new realms of knowledge. Richard Merrick writes beautifully, but what he has to say is what is really important. His subject is enormously complex and I wondered whether I would be up to absorbing his material. I needn't have worried; he masterfully explains his theories, and takes you from stage to stage in his thrilling discoveries.

This is what life is all about; mystery, knowledge and exposure to new concepts. He has taken me onto the next stage of my journey through life. Buy this book and enjoy the revelations.
