Riassunto: The Measure of the Cosmos explains how men in antiquity marked an Image of Creation in the terrain of new settlements. The book is based on Einar Pálssons hypotheses concerning the use of numerology and symbolism by ancient cultural communities to calculate the placement of their sacred Images of Creation. The principal reference points were the motions of the heavenly bodies, the cardinal directions and the proportions of the human body. Man’s Image of Creation was a projection on the terrain of the Zodiac, anchored to prominent landmarks on the ground and the Sun’s annual path around the Zodiac. The Image of Creation was at once sacred and a practical Sun Watch. The ancient approach is akin to a yardstick, which applies not only to the ancient Image of Creation discovered in Iceland, for Pétur Halldórssons research has established that the like reference frame was used in antiquity in all parts of the globe.
From the Author: A scholar by the name of Einar Palsson, discovered a huge Cosmic Image in the delta of south Iceland, by deciphering the symbols in the allegory of the most famous book of the Icelandic Saga heritage, Njalssaga. I have been developing it for the past 25 years. It may be said that in the allegory of this Icelandic skin book lies a blueprint of the basic layout of cultural areas of the world, from London to Athens or Iceland to Rome. The atributes of the Cosmic Image, whether in the deltas of South Iceland or in the sands of Egypt, are of course historical occurences, but most of all PORTIONS. The Cosmic Images were measured and paced with excquisit percision and aligned to the course of the Sun or the stars. I propose these atributes are amongst the oldest feats of Human kind and are the means of how first settlers of virgin land hallowed their habitats. It is very appropriate that this pagan ritual is discovered up here in Iceland, for it seems the last place in world history for it to have been implemented. After the discovery of Iceland and its Christianisation in the year 1000, all new discovered areas were dedicated to Christ of the new religion. Thus, measuring of the Cosmic Image in Iceland marked the end of a multi-millennial era in the evolutionary history of mankind's religious traditions. Further more it is appropriate that the discovery is developed by a visual artist like miself, for the Cosmic Image is based on proportions and visual symbolism of natures phenomenons.
