Patrice Chaplin - "Salvador Dali recorded his experience encountering the portal on Perpignan Station in September 1963 by his painting covered with a Celtic cross. On his platform a mysterious figure, Millett's "The Sower", which in some circles is considered to be God. Dali declared Perpignan Station is the centre of the universe and no one knows it and as a tribute placed his colourful wagon near the platform but the locals didnt want it and for years there was a dispute between Catalunia France and South in Spain where Dali came from about this vibrant vehicle. The Perpignan community, although Catalan themselves, thought as did many in the south that the metaphysical should be mentioned only in whispers and though this world famous genius had had some kind of turn on their property it must attract no attention. Finally, in 1993 this unwanted wagon was removed and placed on the Spanish side in a coastal village Rosas." "...towns does have some relation to the mystery. Boudet wrote a booklet called Du Nom de Narbonne which prefigured his La Vraie Langue Celtique…, Salvador Dali (for another Surrealist connection) called the railroad station at Perpignan “la centre du monde” which has Nostradamian associations, and the archives of the Priory of Sion were found at Barcelona, which is also where the current Grand Master resides." The archives of the Priory of Sion found at Barcelona were included in the packet Hautpoul known as the Leaf of Tobit collection in the clerk`s office filed with other historic documents from the Hautpoul estate. "Nine hundred years ago, on February 15, 1113, Pope Paschal II issued the bull Pie Postulatio Voluntatis approving a hospitaller religious order that today is Christendom’s oldest order of chivalry: The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta. The Pope made the order independent from all temporal power and dependent directly on the Holy See." The papal bull concerning Barcelona looks a lot like this bull, it has the same seals, but of a different pope Alexander III.

"In a right-angled triangle the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. This proof is the classical proof of the Pythagorean Theorem, using a theorem of Euclid; proving Euclid's theorem leads us directly to the proof of Pythagorean Theorem. (visualization skills are necessary here) Euclid's theorem: In a right triangle, the square of one of the two shorter sides has the same area as the rectangle whose sides are the projection of that side onto the hypotenuse and the hypotenuse itself. Above is a right triangle drawn on it's hypotenuse." Priory of Sion - Sensational Merovingian Cross preserved by a Venetian family. The decoration of this cross is similar to the silver cross displayed in the glass case in the top photo.

The French writer Jean Cocteau (1889–1963) displayed his creative talents through poems, novels, plays, drawings, and films. "The handguard traces the profile of Orpheus, the mythological figure who was Jean Cocteau’s muse. An ivory version of Orpheus’s lyre, adorned with a 2.84-carat emerald and two rubies, crowns the pommel. Fabric-like gold wrapped around the hilt suggests drapery around the column of an ancient theater, evoking tragic drama. The mount of the scabbard bears Cocteau’s trademark signature of his initials with a star, a symbol that recurs on the crossguard in the form of a six-pointed star with a diamond in the center and a ruby on each point. The star is set against an ivory disk while the crossguard itself takes the form of a stick of charcoal, evoking Cocteau’s drawings. Also on the scabbard, a pattern evoking the grille surrounding the gardens of the Palais Royal alludes to his place of residence, while the hand clutching an ivory ball at the tip of the scabbard refers to the stone-laden snowball in Les Enfants Terribles, the film that Cocteau scripted from his own 1929 novel, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville in 1950."
