“Another relic of the archaic tradition that produced these divisions of time is our present system of measurement by units of feet, furlongs, and miles, with the acre as the unit of land measuring. Those measures, which are still found the most convenient today, were canonized and held sacred, because not only do they relate both to the human and to the astronomical scales, expressing the unity between macrocosm and microcosm, but they bring out the same numbers in the dimensions of the solar system as were given to the units of time.” — Dimensions of Paradise, John Michell, p. 117.
“..the meter was originally defined as 1/10,000,000 of the distance from the equator to the North Pole through Paris, France.”
