A couple of articles came out in the last few weeks concerning the Arch of Triumph in Arona, Italy. The first article made a claim that there had been 2 million visitors in 2 days after the Arch was set up in Arona. I have been following this Arch from day one since March of 2016 and this is the first time they gave any sort of numbers as to how many people have seen the Arch in a short period of time. Here is the qoute from the article, “Two million spectators visited the 3D replica of Syria’s historic Palmyra Arch of Triumph in just two days as it made its fourth stop in the Italian city of Arona, Sicily, on the sidelines of the G7 summit…The project’s website has attracted a wide audience; statistics from UNESCO reveal it was visited by more than 30,000 people, while 50,000 watched the video of the UNESCO/IDA panel discussion online. Meanwhile the hashtag registered 250,000 mentions on Facebook and Twitter in a short amount of time. – TradeArabia News Service” (http://m.gdnonline.com/details.html?id=221938)
I can only assume that this article was put out by the IDA or some agency connected to the IDA for the simple fact that the same article was published by a few different websites. Here are a few other articles. “Two million people visited the Arch replica in just two days. The replica was created in Italy by the IDA, Harvard University, and the Dubai Future Foundation, and is expected to attract thousand.” (https://3dprint.com/179081/palmyra-arch-in-italy/) Now I find it hard to believe that the Arch in Arona had 2 million visitors in 2 days for the simple fact that the opening night had an estimated 5,000 people that attended. “An impressive ceremony organized by the Municipality of Arona (Piedmont, Italy) has veiled of tears the eyes of the 5,000 people who gathered in Piazza San Graziano and saw the 3D reproduction of the Arch of Palmira.” (http://www.qualitytravel.eu/en/latest-news/the-arch-of-palmira-unveiled-in-arona/52420) I’ve seen alot of videos of the unvieling in Arona and it looked far from 5,000 people. I could be wrong though.
Now I couldn’t find one mainstream media source that wrote about this 2 million visitors in 2 days claim. Like I said, there were only a few sources and the few that posted it were obscure sites line this one (http://expatmedia.net/2017/07/02/palmyra-arch-dubai-group-helped-create-draws-millions-italy/). Now what would be the reason as to why they would make a claim Like 2 million visitors? Its been said that 150,000 people visited the Arch in Palmyra when it was still sqanding. And there have been hundreds of thousands of visitors when it was in the other 3 sites prior to Arona. So why 2 million in 2 days? What do we make of that? I can only speculate and say that the numbers might be fudged just a little bit. Maybe because they want people to think that 2 million people were “Passing through and moving forward”, just like the slogan for Arona said. Who knows though, maybe it was actually 2 million visitors in the first 2 days. I highly doubt it though.
Another story that recently came out was the British Council giving $140 million dollars to the Preserving Syrian Heritage Project. You can read the story below. It seems like alot of money just for documenting sites or artifacts digitally don’t you think?
“We are pleased to award Preserving Syrian Heritage Project £109,445. This project aims to train Syrians in digital documentation techniques in order to digitally document heritage sites at risk. Protecting heritage in Syria: Heritage sites in Syria are under grave and immediate threat as the war continues. Archaeological sites in the region are subject to illegal excavations and looting, with archaeological objects then sold through illicit markets. In addition, sites have been routinely destroyed by Daesh as a direct attack on Syria and its people. (https://www.britishcouncil.org/arts/culture-development/cultural-protection-fund/projects/preserving-syrian-heritage)
The second story I want to mention is the VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD 2017 AND EARLY CAREER RESEARCHER AWARD to DR ALEXY KARENOWSKA (PHYSICS) of the IDA. “Dr Karenowska, of the Department of Physics, won her award for her work on a public science project focused on the documentation, preservation, and restoration of at-risk cultural heritage sites across the world. Working with the likes of UNESCO and the Government of the United Arab Emirates, she developed the means to study, document and preserve heritage materials through optical, radio-frequency and X-ray based approaches and the application of 3D printing and machining technologies. In 2016 Dr Karenowska led a team to create a 13 tonne replica of the Triumphal Arch from Syria’s Palmyra site using a combination of photogrammetry-based 3D computer modelling and state-of-the-art 3D machining in stone. She managed the installation of this structure on Trafalgar and has overseen the installation of the same arch in New York, Dubai and Florence.” (https://www.mpls.ox.ac.uk/news/mpls-researchers-win-vice-chancellors-public-engagement-with-research-awards)
So I just happened to look up Ms. Karenowska and her history and I thought it was pretty intetesting for her to get this award. Here is her bio on her blog.
“I am a magnetician with a research group based in the University of Oxford’s Department of Physics, and a Fellow by Special Election of Magdalen College.
My main research is in the properties of magnetic systems. Specifically, I am interested in the quantum-level investigation of spin-wave systems: an area of study known as quantum magnonics. A spin wave is an elementary excitation of a magnetic system — essentially a kind of magnetic wave which can propagate at high speed through certain kinds of magnetic material. Like light, spin waves can be thought of either as waves, or as streams of “quasi-particles”. The spin-wave quasi-particle is called the magnon and it carries a quantum of spin-wave energy. The study of spin-wave systems at the quantum level provides both interesting new insight into the physics of magnetic systems and a potential platform for novel kinds of microwave-frequency quantum information processing.
Alongside my work on spin-wave systems, I am Director of Technology at The Institute for Digital Archaeology, an organization dedicated to finding innovative technology-driven means to document and preserve heritage material. My work is focused particularly on the application of 3D printing and machining technologies to the restoration or replication of damaged or destroyed archaeological structures and artefacts. This work combines aspects of applied electromagnetism with electrical, optical, and mechanical engineering.
At Magdalen, I teach undergraduate Physicsand Engineering Science courses and am also the College’s Access Fellow. I have a special interest in helping potential applicants and their teachers learn more about the College. In connection with my work in physics, engineering, and archaeology, I run an educational programme called Gatewayswhich works to bring to life the important relationships between the sciences, the arts, and the humanities.” (https://magnetical.org/about/)
Here is her Bio from the IDA website. “Since 2015, I have been Director of Technology at The Institute for Digital Archaeology (IDA).
I work with the Institute’s founder and Executive Director, Roger Michel and international partners such as UNESCO, and Dubai’s Museum of the Future on the development of innovative technology-driven means to document and preserve heritage material.
I have a particular interest in the photographic study and documentation of cultural heritage objects and the application of 3D printing and machining technologies to the restoration or replication of damaged or destroyed archaeological structures and artefacts. This work combines aspects of applied electromagnetism with electrical, optical, and mechanical engineering, and also involves the development of dialogue about what cultural heritage is, what it means to today’s society, and how we can work as an international community to preserve it.
I manage technical aspects of the IDA’s large-scale open-access international database project, The Million Image Database. The database, which targets the collection of images of cultural heritage sites around the world, can be accessed here.
I also direct the IDA’s work on the development of 3D print and machining based reconstruction technologies and over our on-site reconstruction initiative.
In April 2016, I managed the IDA’s installation of a monumental-scale replica of the Triumphal Arch from Syria’s Palmyra site on Trafalgar Square in London. This structure was produced by a combination of photogrammetry-based 3D computer modelling and state-of-the-art 3D machining in stone. You can find out more about the installation here and the manufacturing process here. The event was covered by media organisations across the world — selected articles and documentary footage can be accessed here.
During the week of September 19, 2016 I oversaw the installation of the Triumphal Arch in New York City. The theme of the installation was the role of architecture as an expression of identity. The forms part of a major collaboration between our existing partners and New York museums, cultural heritage organisations, and academics.

So I don’t find it strange that this lady got these awards for working with the IDA. I do find it strange that she is a physicist and was in charge and overseeing the building of the Arch and the setting it up at all for locations. From the very get go I presumed that this Arch was like a beacon of sorts sending a signal out to the spiritual realm. This was based off of all my research. Then at the end of May when the Arch was set up in Arona, Roger Michels came out and said that the Arch was “like an antenna of sorts”. This blew my mind because he finally admitted what it actually was. I said beacon while he says antenna. Basically the same thing. It was something that was sending off a signal and/or receiving a signal back to it. To where, your guess is as good as mine. I suspect to the likes of Saturn, Jupiter and Venus. And to understand what I’m saying exactly, you need to have read all my other papers that lead up to this conclusion.
She mentions that one of her main studies is in Quantum Magnonics. What is Quantum Magnonics exactly? “The field of magnonics is the area of magnetics dedicated to the science of quasi-particles known as magnons. In certain magnetic systems, magnons are able to play the role of microscopic tokens which can carry ‘spin’ — the quantum mechanical currency of magnetism — over relatively long distances (up to centimetres), and at high speed (many tens of kilometres per second). My research group in the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford develops low-temperature microwave magnetic circuits to probe the physics of magnonic systems at the quantum level. The bulk of our work is done in a purpose-equipped dilution refrigerator in which we conduct measurements at millikelvin temperatures.
Our interests also span the related field of magnon spintronics. Spintronics is the area of research dedicated to the study of how spin can be used realize new types of information transport, storage, and processing system which surpass the capabilities of those found in today’s consumer electronics. Magnon spintronics is concerned with structures and devices which involve the passing of spin-information between magnons and electrons. Such systems are a rich source of new physics, showcasing the subtle interplay between magnonic and electronic transport and, in so doing, opening doors to electronic devices with novel and exciting functionalities.
A particular goal of our work is to take some of the first steps towards accessing the new physics and potential technological opportunity at the interface between magnonic and magnon spintronic systems, and the techniques of contemporary microwave circuit-based quantum measurement and information processing.” (https://magnetical.org/quantum-magnonics/)
“The term “magnon” refers to the quasiparticles of spin waves and explains why this field of research is being called “magnonics.” In contrast to spintronics, which only makes use of the electric charge as a property of electrons as well as its spin moment, magnonics employs spin-wave excitations in magnetic materials.
“Basically, spintronics still requires electric currents but usually restricts these currents to consisting only of spin-up or spin-down electrons, thus providing an additional degree of freedom to process or encode information,” explains Fischer. “However, magnonics can operate without any electric currents by only relying on the propagation of spin waves in a magnetic material as a carrier of information.” (http://spectrum.ieee.org/nanoclast/semiconductors/devices/move-over-spintronics-here-comes-magnonics-to-the-rescue-of-electronics)
So obviously I’m not a physicist as could use some more help here on translating all of this. But I do know this, it deals with solid state physics and a good example seems to be something like a hard drive or compact disc. Now I find it interesting that the woman who was in charge of building the Arch and oversaw three installations is in the field of Magnonics. And based off on what I mentioned above and quantum magnonics, is this type of quantum physics related to the Arch and it being a sort of antenna as Michel put it? We know that some rocks and minerals have magnetic properties but would something like the replica of the Arch of Triumph have these sort of properties? Read this about magnetism and planets.
After I thought about all of this I researched what the Arch was made of. Its called Egyptian Marble. “A cutting-edge piece of kit this machine may be, but in the end the principle is as old as the Apuan Alps that surround us. ‘It is exactly the same as with Michelangelo,’ says Giacomo Massari. ‘Nothing changes!’…For the past two months, in a mountain workshop right next to where Michelangelo quarried a block of finest-quality white marble for his David, a new arch has been rising, and the week after next, in a culminating flight of fancy, it will touch down in Trafalgar Square. Massari is the co-owner of the Carrara workshop where it is being manufactured, from seven blocks of Egyptian marble. ‘We are very happy to do this and we feel that it will be something that can change the history of what happens,’ he tells me.” (https://www.google.com/amp/www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/04/08/why-the-arch-of-triumph-of-palmyra-is-being-recreated-in-london/amp/#ampshare=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/04/08/why-the-arch-of-triumph-of-palmyra-is-being-recreated-in-london/) “In Italy Rutelli’s 12 metre-high Big Delta printer is built by the Wasp Corporation and was first displayed at Rome’s Faire Maker digital fair last year. It has already been used to recreate portions of Pompeii and is being used to recreate the 4 metre-high winged bull of Nimrud in Iraq, smashed by Isis last year.” (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/29/palmyra-message-isis-islamic-state-jihadis-orgy-destruction-heritage-restored)
Now notice that they say its made out of SEVEN (completion) blocks of this Egyptian marble that were used. I had also read that Egyptian marble wasn’t exactly their first choice. “The decision to build it in Egyptian marble – which they claim will be close to the original in appearance – was also a late one.” There are actually different kinds of Egyptian marble so I’m not actually sure what kind it actually was. I’ve emailed the quarry in Italy that made the Arch and the company Tor[art] but haven’t gotten any reply back.
I haven’t had much luck on Egyptian marble but I did come across this. “Carrara marble is one of the most famous Italian marble in the world. Giving Egyptian marble this name indicates that this Egyptian marble resembles the Italian Carrara but with a black color. It is noteworthy to mention that Carrara is by default white.” (CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MARBLEINDUSTRY IN EGYPT By Azza I. Kandil and Tarek H. Selim) So according to this, Carrara and Egyptian marble resemble each other and I’m not sure if they can be used interchangeable. We do know that the Arch was made at a Carrarra quarry in Italy so maybe these two are interchangeable.
I did come across where Brown Jasper which is found in Egypt, ironically is known as Egyptian marble. This is interesting because of the properties in Jasper that the occult uses. Jasper was also mentioned in Revelation 21:18 for the walls of the New Jerusalem. I didn’t see these as literal walls but I found it interesting if this Arch is somehow connected to Brown Jasper.
Here is what new agers have to say about Jasper. “Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the “rain bringers” and nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom. The name can be traced back in Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Assyrian, Greek and Latin, and the virtues of Jaspers have been extolled throughout the ages by the most noted physicians, magicians, poets, scientists, lapidaries and scholars. [Mella, 77-78][en.wikipedia.org] Brown Jasper, called Egyptian marble, was one of the traditional Jaspers in Ancient Egypt used for amulets, ritual vessels, and jewelry….Brown Jasper is excellent for activating the Base or Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine. The Base Chakra controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement, and is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body….Known as “the rain bringer,” Jasper has been revered since ancient and medieval times as a divining stone of “tempestaries,” magical masters of the wind and rain, called upon in secret to save harvests in periods of drought…Jasper honors Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother Goddess. Born directly out of Chaos, the primal emptiness, she was the first (or one of the first) beings to appear during the process of creation, and is honored as being the Earth itself. Jasper honors Bona Dea, the Roman Earth Goddess of Fertility and the Greek Goddess of Women. She protects women through all of their changes, and is a skilled healer, particularly with herbs. Jasper also honors Callisto, the Greek Moon Goddess; Chirakan-Ixmucane, the Mayan Creator Goddess; and Clota, the Goddess of the River Cldye….Jasper was worn throughout history as an amulet against phantasms, evil spirits, and witchcraft….Jasper was a significant stone in nearly all religious and cultural histories throughout the world. In a Mesopotamian creation legend, the god Marduk (Jupiter) formed three heavens or spheres above the Earth, with the lower one being created from Jasper. On it he drew the constellations. [101 Hall, 112]…to the Hebrews, Jasper was Yashpheh, the twelfth stone in the breastplate of the High Priest, inscribed with the tribal name Assher, though some list it as the tribe of Benjamin.” (https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/brown-jasper)
So I’m not saying the Arch is made of Brown Jasper which is called Egyptian marble but there are a lot of occult influences with it. So the question is this…why is this woman who is a physicist in quantum magnonics in charge and overseer of the Arch of Triumph? Is there some sort of magnetism there with the Arch?
