7 Secrets of Pentagon


1. Feng Shui, or sacred place "in the dark dark forest was dark citadel ...". Perhaps years from two to three hundred and will start "scary story" about the powerful US military. However, the forest-no it was not. But it was a cemetery and the swamp ... Somewhere there was a stray thought in 1940 from the American administration - to place all US Department of Defense in the same building. And this is neither more nor less than 26 thousand employees spread out in 17 separate buildings in the District of Columbia. Moreover, according to the statement, in the future citadel were comfortably accommodate 40 thousand people at the same time! In Europe gathered momentum World War II, to which Americans can join at any time, but here is an idea! Illogical somehow comes out - all the key military commanders under one roof. Even top managers of Coca-Cola, who know the recipe of soda, do not fly on the same plane. Nevertheless, the architects immediately after the president began to look for a visual signal area for the construction of the citadel. In Arlington, a suburb of Washington, they have chosen one place that had once been expropriated. They certainly would envy feng shui master. Most bribed that land was delineated by five roads, some of which intersect at an angle of 108 degrees. Most, of course, it had little to say, but the architects are strong in geometry, and they were well aware that the lines converge at this degree in an equilateral pentagon, which the ancient Greeks called "pentagon". And remains a mystery to us, that was the primary - a place that projectors found, or the project, under which is specially picked and territory. I must say that the place was well swamped, and next to him is the famous Arlington Cemetery, where American soldiers were buried - not the best place for construction. Feng Shui Masters would hardly have approved, but the US president probably knew more Chinese geomancers - building land has been agreed. The only Roosevelt ordered - at the request of the couple - some move on half a mile, the future of the building, that it does not obscure a view from Arlington Cemetery on Washington. 

2.Zolotoe-section is known, at the entrance to the Academy of Plato's philosopher hung the motto "Do not let no geometer enter. " Today, we can confidently say that the authors of the American Office Building, would be taken with the soul capricious Platonists. Few people know that the Pentagon is still the best possible ergonomics. The building is intersected by ten corridors of the center, which connect five pentagons come from the center. So, fellow US military can get to any point on the perimeter of the building, at a cost of no more than seven minutes. The natural ergonomics associated with the properties of the geometric figure. So, the diagonal of the pentagon form a pentagram, and the intersection of the diagonals in a regular pentagon points are always points of the "golden section". Thus they form another pentagon, during which necessarily forms a diagonal one. And so on to infinity. Thus, the Pentagon seems to consist of an infinite number of pentagons which form the points of intersection of the diagonals. This endless repetition of the same geometrical figure creates a sense of rhythm and harmony, which is fixed to our unconscious mind.

 3. Navel of the land , however, is likely not only ergonomic benefits prompted the US military to opt for a figure of a regular pentagon. It plays an important role symbolism itself. Referring again to Plato. The famous philosopher called the most perfect geometrical body of a dodecahedron - dodecahedron, composed of twelve pentagons. Plato argued that his "God used for the planning of the universe as a model." In 2003, the analysis of WMAP spacecraft data, launched by NASA, it has been hypothesized that the universe is a dodecahedral space of PoincarĂ©. According to the simulation data, the observations showed that the universe is a collection of infinitely repeating dodecahedron - regular polyhedra, the surface of which is formed by 12 pentagons.

 4.Goroskop Pentagon Many experts in the field of astrology, have argued that the construction of the Pentagon was not without consulting the astrologers. Construction was scheduled to begin September 11, 1941 and end January 15, 1943. It is interesting that the terms have been complied with builders, they say, second in the second, which in itself is an exceptional case - especially in wartime. Astrologers noticed in the dates of beginning and end of construction nekoyu "star" pattern. Their attention was drawn to the "world war" - Mars. Construction began when a celestial body was in its sign - Aries, and ended when Mars was at its exaltation (maximum force) - Scorpio. Curiously, after putting into operation of the Pentagon the US army carried out only successful military operations during World War II. 

5. The triple September 11 This date is mysteriously accompanies the Pentagon. On this day, construction of the building was started in 1941, in 2001 the Pentagon was attacked by Boeing, and September 11, 2002 the entire territory of the Pentagon re-entered into service. One of the major improvements was a complete upgrade of the building windows and replacing them on the armor. The outer walls of the building have been strengthened and made ​​shatter. General safety measures leading to the elevators, subway stations were closed, and significantly increased. Conspiracy theorists are trying to find the matching patterns, but to open the riddle factor "September 11" yet no one has succeeded. It is interesting that some hotheads, enthusiastic Pentagon puzzles, predicting that in the "biography" of the object should happen two more Sept. 11 - to symbolically finish the regular pentagon.

 6. And if Boeing was? But the main mystery, at least, has become public, it is a terrorist attack the Pentagon, a perfect 11 September 2001. According to official figures, on this day, in 9:37:46, the left wing of the US military building rammed Boeing 757-200. This wing is the command of the naval forces. Part of the building collapsed and was severely damaged. Curiously, in the moment of impact, that is what the Pentagon wing held alterations, and most of his staff were transferred to other offices. Almost immediately, there were dozens of comments after the attack, claiming that no plane crashed into the Pentagon. According to the arguments of the doubters, minimal damage to the building after weighing in at 100 tons of attack aircraft, moving at a speed of at least 300 km per hour. "On the site, not only is no debris, but there is no trace of burning a huge amount of blazing fuel from (presumably) aircraft destroyed tanks on the grass in front of the wall", - experts say. In addition, after any crash, even the worst, there is always recognizable remains of the fuselage parts. In the case of the Pentagon, according to official information, all remnants of Boeing melted during the ensuing fire. Miraculously survived only a black box records which prove that the board was taken over by terrorists. Some analysts have put forward the theory that the nature of the Pentagon's destruction more consistent attack "Tomahawk" cruise missile without a warhead that does not have a warhead (explosives) - ramming the aircraft with almost full tanks , they say, had to almost completely destroy the Pentagon. However, department officials do not comment on the views of amateurs. That may know people, even experts on explosives, the supernatural properties of geometric shape of an equilateral pentagon? "Do not let no geometer will!". And then, how can explain these doubters, where the same happened to the passengers of the plane that supposedly crashed? 

7.Zanimatelnaya arithmetic While the Pentagon is brewed in the confined space of an infinite number of internal pentagons, pentagrams, "seasoned" golden section, people from the outside try in vain to solve their riddles . Sometimes unsatisfied information formal US military have to be content with cunning numerological calculations which allow entertaining results. For example, the Pentagon was built in 491 days. If, on the Pythagorean method, add these numbers (4 + 9 + 1), we obtain - 5 (the number of sides of the pentagon). If we go further, according to the same method of Pythagoras, and decide to multiply the number of (4H9H1), we obtain - 36. If, however, we will not rest on this number, calculate the sum of all integers from 1 to 36, it will turn out - 666. conspiracy theorists argue that it is for this number, builders worked day and night so as not to fill up the time. But it is possible to agree to anything. By the way, the Pentagon concluded with it the pentagram was a symbol of the famous Pythagorean mystical union, founded by the ancient Greek thinker. So, the Pythagoreans believed that their emblem not only symbolizes the harmony of the universe, but also able to provide a harmonious effect on the surrounding space. Border effects, of course, depend on the size of a regular pentagon. Thus, the perimeter of Arlington geometric figure is about 1405 meters - that today is enough to influence the whole world.
