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.

This book was recommended by a friend in Ontario.
If you can get away from the Dan Brown focus in the official blurb, this is really a well-researched contribution to some modern findings about harmonic science and earth's resonance frequencies. The author is, among other things a jazz musician so I appreciated all the references to cymatic patterns, golden ratio, harmonic interference theory, Fibonacci theory etc.
Merrick has included research by others in this field and it makes for rich reading, as he combines many disciplines and shows how inter-related everything in nature is, including recent research regarding the planetary vibrations of Venus, the knowledge of ancient civilisations and richness of Vedic mythology. He has broken information down into segments to make it easier for the layman to understand if you don't have a mathematical or music background.
A large focus of the book is on Rosslyn of course. So if you are a Dan Brown fan this will add some factual texture to Brown's fiction.
If you are willing to step right outside the conventional box and see with new eyes, this book is relevant for today.
