Subject: Sinclair Engrailed Cross


As with Niven I'd really appreciate knowing what you might discover re the
engrailed cross. I'm a retired Navy Commander and at my age have nothing
better for entertainment than sacred geometry. And an intense interest in
Clan Sinclair. Re the geometry I find that it can be a schematic for
organizing both energy and complementary consciousness. This gets me into
temple and earth grid dynamics as well as translation and interpretation of
scripture. Then too, this demands that I at least try to understand related
archetypes and their application ...like "What's a grail and what's it good
for?" What geometry describes a grail dynamic? My studies and
experimentation show the primary angle to be 26 deg, 18+ minutes. We can
make a vesica out of that, instead of the usual 30 degrees, and we have what
I believe to be the Sinclair engrailed cross geometry: the size/ratio of the
"cup" or vesica.

Then with this assumption we must know what the blue field is relative to
the black cross format. This becomes quite technical in a metaphysical
context having to do with primal creation process within a field of divine
grace. Pretty standard in all major religions including the Judeo Christian
but not many know of it much less use it. Clan Sinclair did/does. I don't
intend to discuss religion or spiritual matters on this circuit so if you
wish a more complete explanation you can get me at roslinne@fone.net.

The "Bethlehem" angle is named for the angle from the Great Pyramid to
Bethlehem, also the angle in the Pyramid used with the two ascension
passageways. This angle is found in primary grid geometry in Rosslyn Chapel,
Chartres, Monserrat basilica, Stonehenge, and St Mari's chapel at
Glastonbury (crypt). A few examples. It locates the "Resh" (Hebrew for Chief
Head Stone) that becomes the corner (Ps 118:19-24). A complete explanation
would take a few days.

I doubt that you will find this information in written books since the
technology was once secret. The Templars had it and also the Masons to some
degree ...I'm not a Mason so I can't comment on that. St. Columba had it
before the Templars. Clan Sinclair applied it extensively in designing and
siting their temples, castles.

I think Nivens' observations below are valid but as he would undoubtedly
admit there is more to it.

In my study of the Shield I used the design from the Chapel "boss" shown in
Andrew Sinclair's THE SWORD AND THE GRAIL. This shows two thumbs marking a
line across the top. The "thumb" in Hebrew is the letter Yud (#10) once
drawn as a bent arm with open hand, thumb up. This is another technical
thing relating to the "two yuds" (Yeshua and Yachannen, ie Jesus and John:
John 3:30). I mention this because this design can be superimposed over the
lower chapel (crypt) to effectively unify the Chapel's highest function with
the Shield. Remember that we are trying to find out not just what these
elements are in a grand design but more precisely: what they do. If we know
the primary function of the Shield, then we can determine the Chapel
overlay. A Sinclair knight would then have the basic "spritual alchemy" for
his shield.

Niven has a good point: "I have always thought it represented the protection
of the true cross because we were the knights of the grail - hence
engrailing." I would add one thing relative to the above paragraph and his
remark here, that the energetic formats or "codes" in the Shield and the
engrailing can be directly transferred to the man himself by a transferrence
process. Thus the knight becomes not only the Grail but also the Temple
(Chapel) and essence of the Clan. Everything helps when some wrong thinker
is enthusiastically beating you on the head and shoulders with a great large

Thoth Hermes oversees spiritual sciences: math, music, healing and
regeneration, languages, etc. Yeshuas' 12 disciples organized the same
within the archetype of the 12 point wheel or temple. Yeshu would be in the
center but would work through the "yud" factor in them all, principally

In contemplating the cross also include the unseen vertical axis or "5th"
element related to the "4." As in Eden we have four rivers and lands that
are generated by the one (5th). "Eden" means "controlling foundation" when
spelled with the alternate "a" letter ...ie use both aleph and ayin to
usually find the hidden application. The Upanishad Maitri 2.6 uses the same
concept but with breaths. This is encoded in the Hebrew letter peh which
"blows into 4-corners."

I don't know of any seminary or literature with the above information; one
has to dig it out the hard way. The geometry for the engrailed cross can be
sent by jpg directly to you if you wish it.

(From Niven:)

I'd be interested in what they have to say.

I have always thought it represented the protection of the true cross
because we were the knights of the grail - hence engrailing.

Others say that the four legs represent the rivers of paradise.

But, if you look carefully at the engrailed crosses within Rosslyn
Chapel you will find, if you cut off at the first knuckle, you are
looking at the croix pattee of the Knights Templar - hidden but
plain to see and, on the outside of the Chapel, there is the
head of Hermes indicating the sealed secret within i.e. the
association with the banned Templars.
