Now that everybody knows everybody…

Houston, we have a BIG PROBLEM.

NASA / JPL’s Near Earth Object (NEO) calculations for the trajectory of the Earth’s orbit intersecting the orbit of Asteroid 99942 (nicknamed Apophis) on April 13, 2029, were calculated using the wrong value of Pi = 3.141592654… .

Having recently discovered the true value of Pi = 4 / sqrt (Phi) = 3.144605511… , where Phi is the Golden Ratio number 1.618033989…, allow me to point out a few problems.

Following is a comparison of Earth’s and Apophis’ near-circular orbits using Old Pi vs. using True Pi. As you know the circumference of a circle — Earth’s and Apophis’ orbits — is calculated by the simple equation C = d x Pi, where C is Circumference, d is the diameter of the orbit, and Pi is a universal constant. See Table below, in kilometers:

###### Circumf Circumf Difference

###### of Orbit of Orbit due to

__Radius of Orbit Diam of Orbit (__**Old Pi**) (**True Pi**) Wrong Pi

**Old Pi**) (

**True Pi**) Wrong Pi

**Earth** *149,597,871 299,195,742 939,951,145 940,852,792 901,434

###### *152,955,334 305,910,668 961,046,707 961,968,373 921,665

**Apophis** 137,994,806 275,989,612 867,046,938 867,878,455 831,517

*Note: NASA says the distance from the Earth to the Sun, 1 AU (Astronomical Unit), is equal to 149,597,871 km, but it is actually 152,955,335.7 km. But let’s use NASA’s figure for purposes of this discussion.

Using the old value of Pi, NASA is currently stating that Apophis will miss Earth on April 13, 2029, by only 32,000 km (18,000 miles). The Moon is some 385,000 km from Earth and 32,000 km is the level of our satellites above Earth. The difference between NASA’s erroneous calculations of the orbits of Earth and Apophis using the wrong value of Pi is significant: 901,434 km too short for Earth and 831,517 km too short for Apophis. If NASA’s current orbit calculations are already wrong by hundreds of thousands of kilometers, why should we believe that Apophis will miss planet Earth by a measly 32,000 km if we use the incorrect value of Pi? NASA is already off by 900,000 and over 800,000 km just for the basic calculations and we haven’t even mentioned other parameters that also use Pi such as gravity (centrifugal force) and centripetal inertia.

** The BIG QUESTION is: If NASA uses the new, true value of Pi = 3.144605511… instead of the old, erroneous value of Pi = 3.141592654…, would the trajectories of the new Earth and Apophis orbits still miss planet Earth by 32,000 km or would Apophis crash into Earth?**

Before suggesting a solution, allow me to put forth a few tidbits of information such as how big is Apophis and how fast is it travelling – therefore, how much energy is it carrying — through space? Apophis is estimated to be 375 meters wide, which is the size of 2 – 3 Rose Bowl Football Stadiums and its estimated speed is around 15,000 mph.

Some troubling and interesting factors include:

- Apophis was predicted to exist by a Swiss individual named Billy Eduard Meier in 1981 and stated that it would crash into Earth on April 13, 2029. This was 25 years before Earth astronomers discovered Apophis in 2004. Meier has been publishing astronomical and other information as a contactee meeting with human ETs called The Plejaren for the last 75 years. Billy Meier and the Plejaren called Apophis “The Red Meteor” and predicted from their calculations that Apophis would strike planet Earth somewhere along the Tectonic Plate from the North Sea (Northern England) to the Black Sea (near Ukraine). They still hold this prediction to date and state that (for some reason regarding their belonging to a High Council of many other ET humans in our Milky Way Galaxy) they are not allowed to physically save Earth from this upcoming Cosmic Catastrophe but can provide us with the information for us to save ourselves. Hence the prediction they gave to Billy Meier in 1981 to provide to us Earthlings advance knowledge of this event. Note that NASA, 25 years after 1981, independently came up with the same “close encounter” date of April 13, 2029, AND April 13, 2036 if Apophis is slingshot through Earth’s Gravity Keyhole in 2029. The difference is that NASA is using an erroneous value of Pi in their orbit and other calculations.
- Besides having provided the Apophis-striking-Earth prediction in 1981, the Plejaren and Billy Meier have maintained for the last 60 years or so that Earthlings are currently using the wrong value of Pi, which is the difference between Meier’s crash prediction and NASA’s near-crash prediction on the same date. Meier and the Plejaren state that Earthlings will have to discover the true value of Pi if we want to prevent the Apophis-Earth crash, plus accomplish future things such as time travel (which the Plejaren apparently do) and pull energy from black holes.
- Having read these contact notes about Pi being the wrong value (anybody can log onto the Internet and find this information at figu.org), I at first, disregarded such a claim but later about five years ago became interested in researching Pi. It took me about 2 ½ weeks to convince myself that Pi was, indeed, wrong, and the last four years to draw and write the math proofs and send this information out to some 20 – 25 mathematicians, scientists, and journalists. But to no avail. Why am I not surprised? Virtually nobody at the major universities in the US or Europe will comment upon this important discovery of the true value of Pi, probably because I’m not one of the professors tenured in the math department of a university. However, I have recently put my Pi Proofs up on the Internet – geometric drawings which are only 1 page long — and anybody can walk through the videos and narrations of my true Pi math proofs at www.measuringpisquaringphi.com . I have also previously sent to you, President Trump, and selected members of your Cabinet, Commerce and Education, all of this information but at present have not heard from anybody.
- Just for fun, I sent my math proofs over the last four years and web site address to Billy Meier and the Plejaren at their Semjase Silver Star Center (SSSC) in Switzerland — thinking the Plejaren will never read my math proofs, but what the heck. Last year I visited the SSSC facility near Zurich, Switzerland, on a trip to Europe with my wife. Meeting with Christian Frehner, Billy Meier’s right hand man at the SSSC, Mr. Frehner informed me that Mr. Meier had recently taken my math proofs to the Plejaren and the Plejaren stated that while they were not allowed to interfere into Earth’s business physically, they stated — with some astonishment and excitement according to Mr. Meier — that my math proofs and calculations regarding the true value of Pi were absolutely correct. They also stood by their initial prediction of Asteroid Apophis crashing into the Earth on April 13, 2029. Frehner then informed me that the SSSC would be publishing my math discovery about the true value of Pi (please see enclosed attachment) in Volume 77 of their FIGU Bulletin. This Bulletin is subscribed to by some 29,000 scientists and other interested parties because Meier and the Plejaren have previously and consistently provided correct astronomical and other scientific information that scientists all over the globe are very interested in.
- Meeting with Mr. Frehner at the SSSC in Switzerland last Sept 2017, I did not know much about the Apophis Asteroid-crashing-into-Earth prediction, but was soon informed by other scientists who read about my Pi math proofs and contacted me. That’s when I started researching NASA / JPL and their NEO group and their latest conclusions that Apophis will not strike planet Earth but will miss by some 32,000 km (about 18,000 miles). However, NASA is using the wrong value of Pi = 3.141592654… to reach their conclusions, while Mr. Meier and the Plejaren (and I) are using the correct value of Pi = 3.144605511… .
**I’m not yet declaring the Apophis prediction is true. I am only, at this time, asking NASA’s NEO group to recalculate their equations using the correct value of Pi to discover whether they agree with the prediction.**

So, what is the solution to this upcoming possible Cosmic Catastrophe?

First, the Meier and Plejaren prediction of Apophis hitting Earth is that it will crack the Eurasian Tectonic Plate making two new continents along the line of the North Sea to the Black Sea, and that volcanoes will be hit, erupting much lava and other debris, plus spewing forth deadly Sulfurous gases that will be carried West across the North American Continent and around the globe. Obviously, if this happens, hundreds of millions of people around the globe will die and our future crop seasons will be greatly impacted. The entire Earth will not explode – unless enough sea water pours down into a volcanic caldera which, by definition, extends to the molten center of the Earth, and causes a super volcanic explosion. There is probably not enough energy from the impact to cause a complete Earth destruction.

Second, in the case in which Apophis barely misses the Earth due to what is called a mile wide Gravity Keyhole near our planet, the Earth will slingshot Apophis around into its same orbit only to come back in 7 years on April 13, 2036, and strike planet Earth with the same or worse results.

These are the possible conclusions if the Billy Meier and Plejaren predictions are correct and if we do nothing to alter this outcome.

What bothers me is that I now know (having proved True Pi) that (1) Meier and the Plejaren were absolutely correct that Earth scientists have been (and still are) using the wrong value of Pi, and (2) Meier and the Plejaren published their prediction of Apophis striking Earth some 25 years before Earth scientists even discovered the existence of Apophis in 2004.

This is very troubling because we now know that NASA’s NEO calculations are based upon the erroneous value of Pi = 3.141592654… instead of the true value of Pi = 4 / sqrt (Phi) = 3.144605511… and that NASA’s orbit calculations are off by 900,000 km for Earth and 800,000 km for Apophis. **If Mr. Meier and his human ET contacts, the Plejaren, are wrong, or don’t exist, or their story is just a big Nothing Burger, how can we explain their previous statements about Earth using the wrong value of Pi and the existence of an Asteroid that Earthlings had not yet discovered was going to strike Earth? ** Let me be clear: prior to my visit to Switzerland, Mr. Meier and the Plejaren had never informed me about what the true value of Pi was. I discovered True Pi myself. In fact, I informed them – of course, they already knew since how could they show up to Earth, etc. – and, according to Mr. Frehner, the Plejaren simply told Mr. Meier that my math proofs for Pi that he showed them were correct. As I told Mr. Frehner in Zurich, I really don’t need the Plejaren to tell me about the true value of Pi since I already know my math proofs are absolutely correct, whether they’ve seen them or not. The real problem, I think, is current academicians are afraid to make any statements about Old Pi being wrong for fear of losing their tenured university positions.

The Big Question is: what should the people of Earth do about this possible Cosmic Catastrophe?

Here are the possible solutions:

**You, Mr. President, should instruct scientists and engineers (e.g. at the US’s NIST laboratories and NASA) to use their multi-zillion dollar equipment to verify my results of using a CNC machine to cut a 1.0000 meter diameter circle out of Plexiglas or other material and then measure the Pi Circumference of that circle. By definition, C = diam x Pi, and when diameter equals 1, the Circumference must equal Pi. If they do it correctly, their measurement should easily show that true Pi = 3.1446… and hopefully they can measure this out to a couple of more decimal places, e.g. Pi = 3.144605…, to replicate my findings. This first step alone would verify that NASA’s Old Pi = 3.141592654… is wrong at the third decimal place.**- Next, NASA’s Near Earth Object group should re-do all their calculations for the orbits and trajectories of both Earth and Apophis using the true value of Pi = 3.144605511… and ascertain as best they can whether their new calcs show that Apophis will strike Earth on April 13, 2029, or April 13, 2036 or not. This assumes all their other parameters are correct.
- Of course, Mr. President, you should then assign competent mathematicians to review the math proofs for Pi that I previously sent to you, Commerce Sec Wilbur Ross, Education Sec Betsy Devos, and Mr. Robert Lightfoot, Director at NASA. Allow me to caution you that most tenured mathematicians at US and other universities will swear up and down that Pi = 3.141592654… and that my proofs where Pi = 4 / sqrt (Phi) cannot be correct because that is not what they have been taught over the last umpteen years. I have been fighting this for going on five years now and have a list of those mathematicians who, I believe, are simply afraid of acknowledging my math results because their peers would ridicule them and they may even lose tenure at their university if they dare to open their mouths (and brains).
**That’s why it’s very important for you to instruct NIST to FIRST physically measure the Pi Circumference of a 1.0000 meter diameter circle. The first three decimals – easy to measure – will automatically disprove all the current mathematicians who still think Pi = 3.141592654… .** - Finally, I suggest that you, Mr. President, call together all the best scientists and engineers from various countries on Earth and set up a project team whose stated objective is to nudge Apophis from its current orbit so that in 12 years Apophis will miss Earth by a million miles or more. The preferred method – in order to “nudge” Apophis out of its current orbit — put forth by Meier and the Plejaren is to send rockets with nukes to explode them near the Asteroid but not on top of, or too near which would simply blow Apophis into smaller more dangerous chunks to strike Earth. Other possibilities such as solar wind sails, etc. are difficult and more problematic to control.

What are the odds if we (1) **do nothing** vs. (2) simply move Apophis out of its current orbit? Our choices are:

** Door Number One:** If we do nothing because current Earth scientists still erroneously think that Pi = 3.141592654…, then Apophis may strike Earth, blow up and poison a couple of hundred million people, including America, with poisonous gases on April 13, 2029, or same date 2036.

** Door Number Two:** If we simply nudge Apophis out of its current orbit, then we can’t lose because if Apophis is not going to strike Earth and we have moved Apophis’ orbit then no harm no foul. But if Apophis IS going to strike Earth, we will have saved our planet from a huge Cosmic Catastrophe.

If I was a gambling man — or recently solved the true value of Pi (which I did) — I would chose **Door Number Two. And time is growing short.**

Terry, we are not savage if we do everything we can to protect the people of Earth. Some things are already locked in (predictions) and some negatory things we may make come true if our people do not alter course (prophecies).

Terry, I will teach you a breathing excercise to help you gain clarity and courage at any time of the day straight from Billy’s German-only Meditation book. It’s called the “nose excercise”. Sit in a comftorable position, and put all your attention on your nasal area, and focus in on the breath in, and then the proceeding breath out of your nose while keeping your mouth closed. Keep all stray thoughts out of your mind, absolutely all stray thoughts from becoming an overwhelming flood of senses. Focus on nothing but the breath in (inhale) and the breath out (exhale). Repeat for ten minutes a day, adding more time as you go (my thoughts: add a minute a day/week until you are at 30 minutes with a high degree of concentration). One can use an atomic clock for self-discipline. A leg, or foot may fall asleep during meditation, this is perfectly normal.

Hi Corey, I`ve been doing breathing exercises for quite along time. I have airborne allergies since I was 16 years old so sometimes my breath may be shallow due to congestion but I do breathing exercises as much as I can I always set some time to meditate when ever I can find some time to unwind and relax but its not on a regular schedule due to IBS whch I`ve had since the mid-2000nds due to taking Musinex and Nexium of which I didn`t know backj them so this left me with IBS unfortunately but I like your idea even better but it would have to be on my own schedule when I can just sit down to calm down and just relax which I try to do a lot of. Before that years ago I used to keep a regular schedule now I try to get some meditation in when ever I can find time but sometimes my mind is thinking of other things and worrying so some days are better than others. A scythe told me years ago not to worry because some days will be better than others so she told me not to push it and just let it all come since somedays will be alittle off. She said it will all come and a Reki instructer told me all these Reki and medtations if you keep it up will accumulate if yo keep at it but you have to keep it up in otherwords you have to keep doing it otherwise you won`t get the good results. But eve if you don`t do your meditation it will help you anyway because You`ve done your work but I believe you have to keep it up anyway. I`ve been meditation for over 22 years so I`ll try your idea too but it may niot always work due to my airvorn allegies. Salome, Terry

P.S. I`ve been doing breath exercises for more than 22 years since May ior June 1995. As a matter of fact I do it when ever I get nervice but when I meditate I like to listen to soft or classical music with the volume down extremely low or even use Youtube meditation videos with the volume extremely low which helps me not to even think and if I feel tired I close my eyes and just go out like a light but I always meditate for at least 30 minutes maybe up to 40,45, or an hour at the most,but some days my mind is whirring or thinking of other things. Billy says that`s normal because we are thinking human beings and that is to be expected since we are human.

From today there is only 4070 days until April 13th 2029. Doesn’t seem that far away.

Terry, Billy’s Attention-Meditation-Method and his Satipattäna-Meditations-Methode are a form of concentrative meditation (IE: staring at a clear glass meditation’s object) with it’s basis in thoughtless meditation. It is unlike all the rest of the non-Meier (often “new age”) meditation practices, and in ancient times Billy’s Attention-Meditation-Method and his Satipattäna-Meditations-Methode were spread around the known galaxies and universes by Henok.

Hi Michael,

Your article is translated in french here :

http://billymeiertraductionsfr.blogspot.fr/2018/02/la-veritable-valeur-de-pi.html

Fantastic, Lolo, thanks again!

Great letter Harry; clear, direct and open. Thank you.

Your challenge to other mathematicians seems straight forward to me. What is it about the circle in Pi? Why does it just work? Is the circle the shape to start and end all other shapes with oblate spheroids forming other shapes in between?

Spiritual symbols featuring large circles:

View here: http://www.futureofmankind.co.uk/Billy_Meier/Photo_Gallery

The Absolute Absolutum symbol.

The Primal Absolutum symbol.

The symbol for Creation.

The truth symbol.

The life symbol.

The equality symbol.

The BEING symbol.

The mankind symbol.

The thoughts symbol.

The mission/task/assignment symbol

In the Symbols of the Spiritual Teaching Book we see the number three expressed as a rational number using circles, triangles and perfect squares. The symbol for Creation on page 411, among all the other stuff in it, the entire symbol is surrounded by a perfect square. A perfect square can also be four congruent triangles, which appears in the symbol with the lines in the four corners, imo: of four lines plus one line for a total of 5 lines inside the square. It seems these lines represent sine and cosine waves, with a pair of each. As we know there is a relationship between circles and waves by plotting triangles around critical points until we get full rotation, 360 degrees or 2 pi.

If we take the new and correct pi of 3.144605511 (which I assume is as far out as Mr Lear took it which just happens to be taken out to 9 decimal places), which is still an irrational number because no matter how good we our at measuring with technology, we can never be 100% perfect. Only relative perfection exists in Creation. So pi must be an irrational number despite it being obviously three in the spiritual teaching. We can only get increasingly closer to pi but never reach 3. Interestingly when you take the corrected 2 pi radians https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_2600325929&feature=iv&src_vid=SjRQo7re5uw&v=cgPYLJ-s5II, instead of being 6.28318530718, I get 6.289211022 out to 9 decimals. If we add up the numbers to the right of the new decimal point, we get 9. So we end up with 6.9. If we are to consider inverse property because we know that polarity exists, if we look at the number 6 to the left of the decimal and square it we get 36 which is 9. So inversely we take the square root of 9 which is 3 we end up with 9.3. Now that we have established a relationship for a perfect square, if we now then add up the two numbers we get 12 which is three…. a rational number 3. Which just so happens to be spot on with the spiritual.

I did this to the old pi and got one which is nowhere close to three. This is 6.1 after I add up all 9 numbers to the right, which becomes 36.1 or 9.1 which then added together equals 10 or one.

Hi Anthony, thanks for sharing your interesting findings with us. I find it refreshing and very interesting. I know the number 3 is very important and comes up often in Billy’s writings. Please continue to share your ideas. Salome

It should be relatively easy to verify the new value of PI. Numerous satellites orbit the earth at known elevations. Taking the elevation as the radius, and knowing the speed of the orbit, we simply have to measure the time it takes for a complete orbit to calculate the distance. Has anyone done this yet? It seems such a simple thing to do.

Hi Mike,

Please use your first and last name when commenting.

Thanks.

Would like to encourage people reading this information to watch the videos on Harry’s site, demonstrating the measurement. It is so simple, clear and logical!

http://measuringpisquaringphi.com/pi-measurement/

It appears the web site suggests you can measure accurately to several decimal places using a tape measure. Is that what you are claiming?

If so, do you seriously think that is a rigorous enough proof to satisfy people who have huge doubts about this claim?

It made me wonder what the largest circle ever measured is, and whether satellite orbits have been measured. They seem like good candidates because their orbit will be very close to circular, their heights are known very precisely, the radius is quite large when compared to the videotapes on the website, and the difference between measurement and calculated values should be significant enough to raise serious questions, if this claim about PI is true.

Anyone telling me they can measure to several decimal places using a tape measure is lying.

“It appears the web site suggests you can measure accurately to several decimal places using a tape measure.” FALSE. It appears you haven’t watched the videos on measuring a unit circle using a tape measure, or you are simply lying; I know what I think you are.

“proof to satisfy people who have huge doubts”… can’t prove anything to those who can’t observe and lie instead.

“their orbit will be very close to circular”, please get a children’s dictionary and look up the definition of circle.

“difference between measurement and calculated values”… because they are different in reality, how? Let me know when you get back out of the rabbit hole!

An example of your own lying: “Anyone telling me they can measure to several decimal places using a tape measure is lying.”

I’m leaving, good luck with the tape measure videos, how stupid. If you want to sell a controversial idea you have to do a lot better than the web site. If it does present a good measurement technique that should be made obvious from the start, videos of tape measures only make it look asinine. So good luck with your tape measure videos, I’m out of here.

Don’t let the door …….

Yes, I hope that trump responds. Finally get the real value of Pi out there. 3.144
