Temple at the Center of Time: Newton's Bible Codex Finally Deciphered and 2012

A belief that the ancients held unusual scientific knowledge, of which only fragments remain today, was held by many great philosophers and scientists who participated in the "scientific revolution". Though research by these men led to great discovery, many were convinced that they were merely scratching the surface of an immense but lost pristine knowledge (prisca sapientia) somehow reflected in the architecture and remains of ancient civilizations.

In "Temple at the Center of Time: Investigations of Sacred Dimension, Revealed in Prophecy, the Temple of Jerusalem, and the Ark of the Covenant, from the works of Isaac Newton", David Flynn uncovered what has been heralded as one of the greatest discoveries of all time.

Many books have investigated whether Newton believed that an original pure knowledge existed. Some conclude that he did in fact search for it, but that is the whole of their investigation. A few have written that Newton actually discovered ‘something’ and try to fit his existing research into a prisca sapientia of their own design, claiming his beliefs fit modern realms of philosophy or eastern religions, but these speculations are not upheld by the body of his work. Although Newton had solved riddles of space, time, gravity, light and invented mathematics to predict the motion of objects, this was not the ‘priscia sapienta’. Since the time of Newton, no one has revealed the true form and nature of the original knowledge, or from whence it came… until now.

For the first time in history, "Temple at the Center of Time" uncovers what Newton was looking for and, in so doing, proves that pivotal events in history are unquestionably connected in time and space to Jerusalem.

Newton didn't know it. The key was right in front of him.

From the works of David Flynn

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the fourth entry into a series on the works and discoveries of David Eric Flynn, a modern Christian genius who died at the age of 49 this past January 22, 2012 after a short battle with cancer. For nearly two decades David published original and groundbreaking research on his renowned Watchers Website.

by David Flynn

I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which philosophers have searched all of nature in vain. 

—Isaac Newton

During the formation of modern science and philosophy of the 17th century, the highest achievement lay not in the realm of discovery, but in rediscovery. The Renaissance began at the end of the Byzantine Empire in 1453, when Constantinople fell to the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Volumes of Classical Greek manuscripts were made available to Western Europe for the first time, brought by waves of Greek refugees. [i] One of the greatest philosophical influences transferred to Western Europe from Constantinople was the work of the Neo-Platonists. This philosophy continued the ideas of Plato, who believed that all the workings of knowledge and civilization had been conveyed to humanity from a divine source, and was not conceived by the mind of man. [ii] Through a series of disasters on a world scale, civilization and the knowledge that had produced it was lost.

Whereas just when you and other nations are beginning to be provided with letters and the other requisites of civilized life, after the usual interval, the stream from heaven, like a pestilence, come pouring down, and leaves only those of you who are destitute of letters and education; and so you have to begin all over again like children…Plato, The Timaeus. [iii]

Further in this work is the story of Atlantis, the greatest and oldest civilization the world has ever seen, that had disappeared “in a single day and night of misfortune.” There exist no earlier sources of the legend of Atlantis besides the work of Plato. Timaeus was one of the most copied and widespread of Plato’s works in the Renaissance. In the Neo-Platonic philosophy, the story of Atlantis was considered allegory with underlying truth, or in some cases, a true historical account. It provided the intellectual framework from which the Neo-Platonists searched for lost knowledge. The Neo-Platonist manuscripts of Hippolytus, Proclus, Arisophanes, Plutarch, Apuleius, and many others from antiquity developed the theme that knowledge had been given to man from a divine source. Through its misuse resulting in the corruption of mankind, it was lost by a subsequent judgment from heaven.

Neo-Platonic views of the time also sought to link the celestial and natural world with the divine, an idea borne out of a reawakening to the scientific value of the ancient texts of the Greeks. Ancient religious, scientific, and esoteric works were reassessed within in the context of Judaic-Christian thought.

Historically, the Scientific Revolution was united with an Occult Renaissance, the vestiges of which can be seen even today within the names of established branches of modern science. For example, chemistry originated from alchemy, (the dark art) from the Arabic word meaning “from Egypt” or from the land of Kemet, meaning “darkness.”[iv] Men like Heinrich Agrippa, John Dee, Kercher, Descarte, and later Leibnez and Newton created amalgamations of the religious and natural world, a world divinely ordained and regulated.

Theologians of the Renaissance proposed that because all natural mechanisms of creation originated from God, the resolution of these aspects through natural magic would validate Christianity. Ideas stemming from pure occult writing contained in various ancient sources were deemed compatible with the hidden knowledge in the ancient texts of scripture. This transition of thinking from the realm of occult and religious, to one of pure science was one of the hallmarks of the age. Geometers, mathematicians, chronologists, philosophers, and theologians of the time searched the texts of the ancients for the “lost pure knowledge” or prisca sapienta that would merge all sciences.[v]

Late medieval thinkers such as Descartes, Francis Bacon, and John Dee were obsessed with re-obtaining the prisca sapientia. They poured over the records of antiquity to recover it, believing that the ancients had distilled the essence of it in mathematical truths or some in a symbolic language.

In 1657, the English scholar Robert Turner published Ars Notoria, which purported to contain the pure knowledge of the ancients. The key to understanding the nature of lost knowledge, according to Turner, who had borrowed from earlier works, was the prayers of King Solomon, builder of the first temple of Jerusalem. In the forward of the text, Turner’s editor explains that, “It is called the Notory Art because in certain brief notes it teacheth and comprehendeth the knowledge of all arts.”[vi] In practical application, Ars Notoria did little to produce a pure science, but it did reveal the direction in which the intellects of the Scientific Revolution were searching in order to recover it. They viewed the Biblical account of King Solomon as a tantalizing glimpse of knowledge that had once been and might be recovered by any man that was deemed worthy by God. Solomon was regarded as having obtained the pure science through divine providence. Many of the Late Medieval and Renaissance intellects patterned themselves after Solomon, learning as much as possible about the ancient Hebrew language and rituals. The languages of other ancient civilizations were considered important to the quest as well. The more ancient the language, the closer it may have been to the original and purest expression of knowledge. Suspecting that the ancient Greek geometers had once possessed part of this whole, Rene Descartes, one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution, wrote:

We have sufficient evidence that the ancient geometers made use of a certain “analysis” which they applied in the resolution of their problems.…These writers, I am inclined to believe, by a certain baneful craftiness, kept the secrets of this mathematics to themselves. Acting as many inventors are known to have done in the case of their discoveries, they have perhaps feared that their method being so very easy and simple, would if made public, diminish, not increase public esteem. Instead they have chosen to propound, as being the fruits of their skill, a number of sterile truths, deductively demonstrated with great show of logical subtlety, with a view to winning an amazing admiration, thus dwelling indeed on the results obtained by way of their method, but without disclosing the method itself—a disclosure which would have completely undermined that amazement.[vii]

Groups of Jewish mystics living in France and Spain during the 12th and 13th centuries believed that all the mysteries in the universe could be derived from names, phrases, and especially numbers contained in the writing of Moses.[viii]

Through this reasoning, they developed a tradition of Kabbalah, meaning “received” or “revelation.” Its adherents believed that the highest knowledge of ancient Scripture was dispensed by God and received by men of sufficient scholarship and character. This knowledge was passed down to generations through tradition. The fundamental books of Kabbalah were the Bahir (brightness) and Heichalot (Palaces) from the 1st century AD, and the Zohar (radiance) from the 13th century. These included the ideas of the Jewish sages Isaac the Blind and Nahmanides and were also based on earlier works such as the traditions of Enoch.[ix]

Following the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, the mystic writings of Judaism were distributed and translated throughout Europe . Works previously not available to European intellects were suddenly attainable, albeit for extensive sums of money. Of these, one of the most significant was the Hebrew Talmud, a collection of scholarly works on the Old Testament that were compiled in the 6th century AD; it also had many texts from much earlier periods, some that dated from the 2nd century AD[x] The Talmud explained that generations of humanity were molded, one out of another, in successive catastrophes. In the rabbinical concept of the “Seven Earths,” the generation inhabiting the Fourth Earth built the tower of Babel but went on to the Fifth Earth when men became oblivious of their former origin and language. Their generation was called “the people who lost their memory.” The Fifth Earth was called “the generation of oblivion.” In the Hebrew Tractate Sanhedrin 109a it is said that, “The place where the tower once stood retains the peculiar quality of inducing a total loss of memory in anyone who passes it.”[xi]

The Neo-Platonic philosophers of the 4th century AD wrote commentaries on the works of Plato and myth from Egypt that addressed the same ideas. The belief in a lost world language that retained the essence of all knowledge played a fundamental part in this school of thought.[xii] They tied the loss of the pure knowledge and its recovery with the “messenger to the gods.” In his Commentary on the Timaeus of Plato, Proclus wrote, “The deity Hermes was responsible for distinguishing and interpreting things, recalling to memory the sources of intellect.”[xiii] Macrobius wrote similarly concerning the Roman version of the same deity, stating that “We know Mercury to have power over the voice and over speech, he recalls all what had been forgotton.”[xiv]

John Dee for example, wrote a treatise on what he called the “one symbol,” or Monas Hieroglyphica, that was published in 1564. Dee believed that he wrote the secret of all knowledge in this work through the divine providence of God: “[I am] the pen merely of [God] Whose Spirit, quickly writing these things through me, I wish and I hope to be.”[xv] Dee’s “monad” was, in essence, the sign of Mercury.

In the late medieval period of Europe, Hebrew mystics began to address the mercurial theme of lost knowledge.[xvi] They focused primarily on the etymological source of the earliest name for the Roman god Mercury in Egyptian myth, Thoth or Tahuti. The sages explained that the name “Thoth” is a combination of the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, tawv, and the word for promise, oath.[xvii] The letter tawv has the literal meaning, “a mark or sign.”[xviii] A “tau-oth” or “tah-ut” was therefore a symbol connected with divine promise.

The Semitic (Hebrew and Phoenician) and Egyptian cultures were in contact with each other from greatest antiquity. When the Israelites entered the Promised Land, which was also called Canaan/Phoenicia, at the end of the Exodus, ca. the 14th century BC, the area extended from the border of Egypt to the south to the edge of the mountains of Ararat in the north. The core theology of Egypt (the Osiris, Isis, and Horus myth) incorporated the city Byblos on the coast of Phoenicia as central to its narrative. “Byblos” is the origin of the Latin word for book, Bible, and the phonetic alphabet is so called because of its establishment in Phoenicia . Renaissance theologians believed that Moses was the inventor of the first “sound-based” script in the ancient world. They derived this understanding from the writings of Eupolemus ca. 158 BC that states: “Moses was the first wise man to teach the alphabet to the Jews who transferred them to the Phoenicians and the Phoenicians passed to the Greeks.”[xix] In Genesis, the first man marked with the sign of God’s promise to protect him was Cain, and the Lord said to him,

What have you done? The voice of the blood of your brother cries to me from the ground.…You shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth. And Cain said to the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.…And it will be that anyone who finds me shall kill me. And the Lord said to him, If anyone kills Cain, he shall be avenged sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark on Cain, so that anyone that found Cain should not kill him. (Genesis 4:10–15)


According to this etymology, the first wisdom spread throughout the earth by the exile Cain, the one closest to the origin of humanity in his purest and divine sense. The Omniscient God had spoken to him directly as He had spoken to Adam and Eve. Similarly, in Egyptian cosmology, Thoth was not only the inventor of writing but also the “lord of time” and “he whom reckons years and measures the earth.”[xx]

The Egyptian ankh, meaning life, was closely associated with Thoth. The ancient circle-cross glyph of mercury and the combination of the Greek letters (the consonant tau and vowel omega) forming the word t-auw loosely resemble it and have similar meaning. Both are related to the tauv mark of Cain as a symbol that “preserved his life.”

The Jewish sages explained that Cain built the first city and therefore was the founder of civilization. Cain named this city Enoch after his first son (Genesis 4:16–17). Also according to the sages, the names of Enoch’s grandson and great grandson, Mehujael and Methusael (man smitten by Elohim and man who is of Elohim) shows that for a time the knowledge of Elohim, the name of God recorded in Genesis, was preserved, but soon disappeared. Their reasoning was that the lineage of Cain had died in the flood. However, the human race survived through Noah and his family descended from Seth, Adam’s third son. The Mystics focused on the two Enochs that lived before the great deluge of Noah. The first, the son of Cain, had transferred the sacred knowledge from Eden into the first civilization that was later destroyed due to its corruption and evil. The second Enoch, from the line of Seth, preserved the pure knowledge apart from this corruption. This body of knowledge had been incorporated in ancient structures geometrically. Its decipherment needed a key thought to exist in a universal language that was lost. Ironically, the event that caused its loss corresponded with the development of writing and the birth of civilization. Although biblical chronology renders it impossible for Noah to have met Enoch from the line of Seth, he would have known Methuselah, Enoch’s son. Methuselah lived for 967 years. There was a belief among biblical scholars that Noah would have possessed the learning of Enoch, particularly because it had been recorded in writing. In 1614, Walter Raleigh’s The Historie of the World in Five Bookes gave this explanation:

…It is very probable that Noah had seen and might preserve this book. For it is not likely, that so exquisite knowledge therein (as these men had) was suddenly invented and found out, but left by Seth to Enoch, and by Enoch to Noah, as hath been said before. And therefore if letters and arts were known from the time of Seth to Enoch, and that Noah lived with Methusalem, who lived with Adam, and Abraham lived with Noah, it is not strange (I say) to conceive how Moses came to the knowledge of the first Age, be it by letters, or by Cabala and Tradition, had the undoubted word of God need of any other proof than self-authority.[xxi]


Regardless of whether Noah preserved the written knowledge of Enoch, or the knowledge was recorded in some other fashion, the name Enoch in the Old Testament was of prime importance to the medieval and Renaissance thinkers in the search for a universal language. There was a special geometry expressed in the letters, chronology, and meaning of Enoch’s life on earth. Occult mystics referred to themselves as “initiates” of the ancient sciences. The Hebrew name Enoch was itself a word meaning “initiated” or “experienced.”[xxii] He lived for exactly 365 years, a number equaling the days in a solar year.

The books Polychronicon of the Medieval Alchemist Ranult Higdon (AD 1350), the Cooke Manuscript (AD 1410), as well as the Antiquities of the Jews by Flavius Josephus recorded the knowledge from Enoch of Seth’s line that was preserved geometrically in the architecture of ancient temples. This was especially the case for the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt and the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem .

Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars

  • * the great Cosmic Clock embodied in the Ouroboros, and the true meaning of this serpentine symbol
  • * the "gods" who ruled the planets in the ages before Adam - (Pre Adamic History) - and their return as "aliens"
  • * the distinctly Martian influence on human civilization from earliest times to the present
  • the meaning behind the esoteric tenet "As Above, So Below"
  • * the Great Work of the Mystery Schools from its point of origin to the implementation by the modern alchemists of NASA

About David Flynn:

The author of Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars, wrote popular articles on Mars and of the Biblical significance of the Cydonian Monuments for years. His decidedly alternative views on Cydonia have been discussed on the PAX Television program "Encounters: What is Really on Mars," also featuring Richard C. Hoagland, the researcher who popularized the Pyramids and Sphinx-face found in NASA images of the surface of Cydonia Mars on his website, on the Coast to Coast AM show, and in his own book The Monuments of Mars.

David was always a popular guest on topics such as: the Monuments on Mars; the meaning behind the Sphinx symbol and Biblical cherubim, as well as UFOs & the Nephilim or "aliens".

Dave's research on the Watcher Website has been featured on "Strange Universe", among other shows, and was used as a resource by Dr. Mark Eastman who co-wrote the bestselling 1996 UFOs and Genesis 6-themed book Alien Encounters with popular Christian researcher Chuck Missler.

David Eric Flynn, 49, died January 22, 2012 after a short battle with cancer at his home in Helena. Dave was born October 29, 1962 in Chicago, Illinois to Dr. Alan and Marjorie Flynn. He attended Helena High School and graduated from the University of Montana. He worked at Intermountain Children’s Home for more than 20 years caring for emotionally disturbed children.
