Invisible Architecture

Invisible Architecture



It is well know that the earth is a network of electromagnetic fields, and that we have no control over its underlying forces. It is therefore surprising to discover a conceivable link between mapped energies underneath religious buildings and their final manifestation. The reason for this is probably that lacking advanced technology, previous generations could not take frivolous risks and preferred to live in harmony with nature. People at that time possessed a natural sense of their environment, and a natural instinct to safely situate themselves in space.

Today, when technology calls us to challenge the powers of nature, our sense of danger has become blunted. Only few are aware of the energies below, above and around us. The choice of a building site is mainly based on land values, availability of services and vehicular accessibility.

The fact that faults and underground water streams create physical phenomena, such as increase in gamma ray, infrared radiation and noxious gasses, is nothing new. Despite this, building today has no awareness of the impact of accumulated energy disturbances which affect every aspect of life.

In the past, the desire to cope with these energies resulted in the development of several instruments of detection. Documentation of such is found in the ancient Egyptian era, on papyri as well as in images of Pharaohs holding two instruments - a pendulum and a dowsing rod.

Modern technology, as used in the field of geobiology, actually emulates ancient forms of measurement. The units used to measure short waves are still Angstroms or Bovis, named after the French engineer who descovered that the vitality of every living matter is measurable. Since  every site on earth consists of a certain amount of life, the tension between sites indicates changes in their energy values. By current measurement values, a site that measures 12,000 Bovis units is considered balanced. Namely, it does not consume energy from its surroundings nor transfer any to it. Measurements that vary from this norm indicate a positive or negative deviation.

Since there is a clear correlation between cosmic forces and underground ones, energy mapping takes into consideration visible factors as well as the invisible phenomena. Examples of the latter are underground streams (sometimes reaching as deep as 300 meters), faults, and electro-magnetic networks, usually measured by Hartmann lines which run north-south/ east-west, and the Curry lines, which run in a tilted course of 45 degrees to the Hartmann network. Junctions of these networks show points of concentrated energy.

The influence of non-visible energies on buildings in general, and on life within them in particular, is well observed in several places. There is also indication of the existence of some less explainable energies, some of them verging  on superstitions. For instance, in the past a temporary burial was made in attempt to neutralize the negative influence of death. Evidence of this are the dolmens at Gamla on the Golan Heights, under which bodies were placed for 30 days prior to final burial. Hence, the networks that were mapped in the dolmens’ vicinity have shown a focus of invisible energy increase.

The ancient synagogue in Caupernaum (Kfar Nachum) exhibits similar phenomenon. Here again, a strong energy increase was measured in the white stone structure from 351 AD, which was built over a previous basalt structure, where it is believed that Jesus had prayed.


Built during the 13th century, the Convent of Reinacker near Strasbourg, France has its supporting columns positioned according to Hartmann and Curry lines, while the center line of the church is located exactly over an underground stream. Morever, the two alters are located exactly over the intersections of the main stream with two other ones. The measured energy level increases as one gets nearer to the choir, believedly due to  the fact that the dimensions of the structure’s proportion was based on the Golden Ratio, as in many religious buildings (AI #57).

Distortion in the building axis is also found in the ancient temple of Luxor in Egypt, where the builders probably took into consideration an underground fault and placed the structure parallel to a high energy line.

Such deviation also exists in the lay-out of the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, where the slight angle of the front nave in relationship to the choir at the back, follows a mapped underground fault, 25 cm wide and about 75 meter deep. Though the common explanation for this deviation is the location of the sunrise at certain dates of the year symbolizing purification and transfiguration, one can assume a strong correlation with the notable existence of underlying energies.

Such phenomena and many other ones indicate that underground energies act like the blood system of the earths crust. The leading forces of this system are the tensions created due to the different levels of the underground water, or those created between substances which carry varying degrees of energy valence.

Since the relationship between visible and non-visible forces is balanced, as in other natural phenomena, disregarding either of them would disrupt the balance. The destruction of buildings by natural disasters is still considered an act of divine power. In actuality, religious structures, manifesting awareness of this crucial balance, have proven efficient time and again, surviving disasters against all odds.
