The Legend of The Star Man
Vitruvian Man The pentacle was once revered for the perfection with which the human form fits enigmatically into a five pointed star. Today it is a symbol that resurfaces time and again, but without the purity that was originally intended to be its message. The ‘evolved’ and altered image shown here is all that has survived human interference over the ages. Few if any have given any thought to its origins. Wayne Herschel believes that before this symbol was usurped by all kinds of bizarre followings, it was the ultimate representation of humankind. Humankind, whom he believes from all his research, came from the stars so to speak! Humankind created under a supreme Creator’s perfect mathematical design code.
So why has this symbol of perfection been so blatantly confused with evil? Why has a unique representation of this symbol become the object of desecration and Satanism, to be feared when it was once so pure?
The story of the universal mathematical blueprint of the human form seems to originate around the time of Christ.
A man by the name of Vitruvious lived during this period. We all know how Da Vinci referred to this ancient scholar in his rendition of ‘Vitruvian Man’. What most people don’t realise is that Vitruvious not only delved into advance drawings and the mechanics of machines like Da Vinci, but he had originally represented a universal mathematical code of the human form that was once more defined.
2000 years ago, Vitruvious had recognised the navel as the important central axis for a circle and a square when the human form has legs together and arms outstretched above the head. He also had a second rendition of the human form with legs and arms apart. But here is where something crucial seems to have been forgotten or intentionally omitted. Vitruvious originally interpreted the arms quite differently to Da Vinci in two distinct positions with arms outstretched above the head and arms outstretched far apart. (matching the exact leg positions being together and far apart).
This is exactly how Wayne has interpreted the two arm positions in his human codex theory in ‘The Hidden Records’.
Da Vinci thought the point where the square and the circle intercept was a sacred arm position (see position ‘x’ in the image below). It is also amazing that while Da Vinci published his perhaps ‘censored’ Vitruvian man 1500 years later… another great scholar in Germany at virtually the same moment in time as Da Vinci published the complete Vitruvious human form rendition. His name was Heinrich Agrippa. The churches in Germany were so horrified by this mans occult publication that he was arrested and subsequently burned at the stake.
Here is a combination depiction of Agrippa’s reproduction of Vitruvious’ 2000 year old human code and his two original sketches are shown in an overlay. Note the ‘all seeing’ eye positioned above the head like a crown. It suggests that Vitruvious himself might be repeating an ancient Egyptian source of lost knowledge. One must also consider the possibility that it was not at all safe 2000 years ago for Vitruvious to show the once sacred human icon as complete, i.e. the connection between the human form and the stars.
Over time, the true meaning of the once sacred icon suddenly became embroiled in witchcraft during the Renaissance era, and was henceforth interpreted as ‘the occult’. The ‘sacred’ symbol became a target for desecration by evil groups and cult followers. The way to show disrespect for its godliness and purity was simple… it was unceremoniously turned upside down and desecrated in rituals and utterances, perhaps motivated by the intention to scare people away from the wonderful 'secret'. The icon became something churches believed should be feared.
And fear one must, but for other reasons as Wayne Herschel explains: Humanity has taken our most precious icon of whom we are and where we come from and violated it.
Once you have had the opportunity to read 'The Hidden Records', you will notice that the symbol above has evolved from a very sacred codex that not only makes its appearance at Stonehenge and Giza, some of humanity’s oldest sites, but as bizarre as it may sound, it can even be found on another planet. To get an idea of what the author is getting at, browse through the thumbnail images on this website, then go to the book for the all important reasoning.
This is how the author believes this sacred symbol became distorted. It would appear that over time the human genitalia were seen to be a more appropriate focal point of the ‘star man’ than the navel (as in Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man), which was once the central point from where all the geometrical proportions emanated. Wayne says it not surprising this distortion of the original came about. In the case of the age old Cerne Giant found at Dorset (shown lower down), it seems the genitalia form the cosmic pointer to the area of the sky that repeats the solution to all the star maps that have been found by the author. The same is true for a similar painting of a man in the Lascaux caves that dates back 17 000 years, where the human anatomy acts as a cosmic pointer to the celestial bull. In both instances the genitalia have mistakenly been confused with the ‘sacred geometric centre’ of the human form… hence the distortion of the meaning of the pentacle in later years.
