Nobody in the United States or virtually anywhere else in the world would have to be a sports fan to recognise what this picture represents. It is a baseball diamond, of the sort that can be found in stadiums, municipal parks, schools, colleges and almost everywhere else across the States. To most people, even diehard fans, this is merely a field laid out in a specific way that allows the game of baseball to take place. It does not seem unusual because it is seen every day and hardly anyone stops to think where the baseball diamond came from, or what it might represent other than a place where sport is played. It was only as our research base broadened that it suddenly dawned on us what we were 'actually' looking at as far a baseball field is concerned. This is a typical example that crops up all the time in terms of both Freemasonry and the Venus Families of something truly remarkable being 'hidden in plain sight'.
How did Baseball Originate?
A very early form of Baseball
By common consensus Baseball gradually developed in the United States from a number of earlier games that had been played in Europe (rounders is one example). Such games were enjoyed by village players for centuries and some of them might have had a 'ritual' significance. Doubtless many of these games were played in the one open space that was common land to all farming communities - the threshing floor, a large circular area in which grain from the harvest was threshed in order to remove the wheat, barley or oats from its husks. Some of these games were brought to the New World, where they thrived and developed. Because of its fraternal nature, one particular group within society was more responsible than any other for rationalizing these ball games and for the ultimate development of what we today know as Baseball. The organization in question was Freemasonry, and it incorporated a lot of its own interest in sacred geometry into the shape and dimensions of the baseball field. This is not simply conjecture on our part. It is easy to see just how many of those who worked at developing Baseball and the Baseball diamond were members of Freemasonic lodges.
The image shown on the left is that of the 'square and compass' the most potent symbol of Freemasonry. It doesn't take a great imagination to see how similar it is to the basic shape of a Baseball diamond. But what even many Freemasons are unaware of is what the square and compass represent in a symbolic sense. The 'G' that often appears in the center of the square and compass is often said to stand for 'God' but this cannot be the case. This is because the word God is English, whereas the 'G' appears in this context in Freemasonry from many countries in which English is not the language used and in which the word for God does not begin with a G. We would contend that the G actually stands for the Greek word 'Gaia', which means 'The Earth' and which is also the name of the oldest version of the pre-Greek Goddess of the Earth. Once this fact is realized it is a short step to interpreting the meaning of the square and compass and also the Baseball diamond. As surprising as it may seem to some readers, this shape is as old as the very first civilizations we can study. It represents the 'Vagina' of the Great Goddess - the place from which comes everything we need to sustain our lives. Our ancient ancestors believed that the Great Goddess was so important because all of life came from 'Her' body. In our book we go much further into the secret symbolism that is the Baseball diamond and show where every element of its design comes from. But if the reader doubts what we are saying, perhaps a picture of a very ancient stone carving from a church building in England would give a better indication.
A typical ancient 'Sheena Gig'.
This statue is high up on the wall of the Parish Church of Kilpeck, Hertfordshire in England. The Church dates back to at least 1140, though nobody has any idea whether this statue, which is called a 'Sheena Gig', was incorporated from some very much earlier structure that could have stood on the same site. Though a good representation of a Sheena Gig it is not an isolated example. Such statues are to be found at places throughout Great Britain and Ireland. People generally refer to them as fertility symbols and indeed this is what they are. They relate to the earliest religious affiliations of Europeans, at a time when the greatest reverence was given to the Great Goddess in her guise as Mother of 'all' life. We would draw the readers attention to the shape formed by the arms of the Sheena Gig, in relation to her legs. In total they form the same basic shape as both the Freemasonic square and compass and a Baseball diamond. Such a representation might appear course and vulgar to our modern sensibilities but it certainly was nothing of the sort to our ancestors, who had the greatest reverence for such fertility symbols. We make no apology for introducing this and many related themes in our book 'America - Nation of the Goddess.' They are critically important to an understanding of the 'hidden' United States, which exists in plain sight for everyone to see, but only if those concerned begin to learn what has 'really' taken place during the development of this great nation.
