Oak Island Decoding
Oak Island Algol Star System
After I constructed the geometrical Stars Diagram, it appeared to a binary star system–but I wondered which one? I had no idea that the Algol system even existed. However, I was reading Dante’s Divine Comedy and an epiphany hit me. Several times Beatrice stared light from her eyes into Dante’s eyes. It jogged something in my brain, and I merely typed in “eyes and binary star system” in a browser, and Algol came up. I just love serendipity. Now let's take a good look at Algol, and it’s similarities to the Hill of Tara. Algol, or Beta Persei, is in fact a triple star system with the three stars designated as Persei A, B & C; it is also known as the Winking Demon Star and considered one of the most famous variable stars in the sky. The smaller Persei A and larger Persei B stars revolve around each other while the Persei C star maintains a distant satellite orbit around them. Algol is located in the constellation Perseus below the "VV" of Cassiopeia. The Algol system is the blinking eye on Medusa’s head held by Perseus.

This visible star system of A & B eclipses approximately every 2.85 days for 10 hours or precisely 2.867 days (68 hours, 48 minutes, and 59.9 seconds) for 9 hours and 40 minutes. The 0.017 days or approximately 25-minute discrepancy is discussed in this MIT Technology Review with regards to Egyptian astronomer's observations of Algol 3,000 years ago.
So how can I prove this is the Algol Star System? We'll revisit some numbers from the code after I review a few facts about Algol.Algol B, the larger and fainter star, partially eclipses the smaller star every 2.86 days, causing the system to fade and blink. Illustration by Bob King.
Anyone interested in the stars should really check out Bob’s website. In this link Bob King has a cool animation of A & B dancing around each other. Bob has written a number of great articles about Algol.
The eclipse occurs when Persei B, the larger but dimmer companion star, which a K2 orange subgiant, partially eclipses Persei A, the more massive but smaller main sequence star. A slight secondary eclipse is observed when the Persei B star passes around the back of the Persei A. Illustration credited to Mike Guidry/University of Tennessee and is found on Sky & Telescope
Clue One–Number 285
The first clue that fell into place is found on the second symbol group on Line 2 of the inscribed Stone. Embedded in this group is the numbers 285. Although I haven't introduced the Stone's numbering system yet, I'll give you a quick sneak peek. Here's where the number 285 comes into play. We have to address the second symbol group in Line 2 of θ%+XΠΘ (note, I adlib with the symbols a little bit; I'll figure out the "atl" commands later). Although the θ and Θ represent the number 9, I solely will use them as visual symbols as well the % symbol for the Great Circle that in this case is now considered the Celestial Sphere. Then this translates into θ%285Θ for the 2.85 eclipsing day for Persei A & B. If you look closely, the circle with the line across appears to be representing the motion of A & B, and the circle with a dot could be the smaller Persei A in front of the larger Persei B. The dot in the next symbol group of •∅: could either represent Persei A or the outlying Persei C.
Clue Two–Hill of Tara Configuration
The second clue is the similarities of Algol to the Hill of Tara. I’ve loosely connected the numeral values from the above Oak Island sword/cross numbers presented earlier to the Hill of Tara’s circular earthworks and the small Mound of the Hostages, which I think represents Persei C. Although my manual measurements are somewhat crude from the below airborne LiDAR digital photographs, I came up with some surprising results. I did this as unbiased as possible and didn’t compare the numbers until all were taken.
Hill of Tara LiDAR Survey.
The measurements were taken from the outside borders of the circular land features from the LiDAR photograph directly above. The number before the 30 meters are the measured lengths that were manually taken from the 30m scale found on the bottom left of the above photograph. I highlighted in green and italicized numbers that coincided (ones that jumped out at me anyway) with the dimensions from the Oak Island inscribed Stone and sword/cross 887, 860, 831, 443.5, 415.69, 193, 1247 + 193 = 1440, and 96.5 feet (193/2 = 96.5). Although the Hill of Tara earthen circles are somewhat asymmetrical, the numbers come out close with most having to be multiplied by two or three.
Clue Three–Number 860
The third clue that will fall into place, as discovered on the Treasure Diagram page, is that he reverses numbers. The mutual orbital period of Persei A, B and C is 1.86 years or 365.25days/year * 1.86 years = 679.365 days or rounded off for 680. So, perhaps the mystery of the 860 number is solved if the 8 and 6 are reversed for 680 days as seen in the central blue circle of the Stars Diagram because we determined that average of 860 and 680 is 770.
The Algol Star System is in the Taurus constellation of the Zodiac at 26°; there's varying reports of it being at 26.07° and 26.10° and so on. Below is a Masonic illustration with the Mercury's planetary symbol (the planet of communication) in the middle of partially opposing triangles surrounded by the known planets at that time. What's so interesting is that the Mercury symbol is a mixture of the bull symbol for Taurus and the planetary symbol for Venus (sometimes considered the hand mirror of Venus'). Is there something going on between the Taurus constellation and the planet Venus?
The Algol Star System has always been associated with Perseus' gifted sword even circa 1531 when the when Heinrich Agrippa appointed Algol as a Behenian fixed star with the below symbol that has a suspected Sumerian origin.

Could Medusa's head be the CAPUT or HEAD the Knights Templar allegedly worshiped?
