That is a *very* good comment Bill. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know if you know the archaeological work at the Apollo Temple in 
Dydima, Turkey. Scratched on the inner walls of the sanctuary are the 
faint outlines of the construction plans made by the architects, and 
they did use geometry pretty close to what you describe. The same for 
the columns (some very subtle design indeed!) etc. No 'magic' was used! 
;-) ...and neither did I when I modelled the temple in Moray, Silo, and 
finally POV.

In other Ancient World sites identical architectural plans have been 
found, e.g. in Rome.

It has been a long while since I read up on this (20+ years) and I don't 
know if I still have documentation about these matters. I shall investigate.
