During his talk to ISG members on Monday, 17 January, Dr Ronald de Bruin shared with the audience his discoveries and admitted that he plans to continue his research, which probably could include other European regions or capitals.
Meanwhile, we greatly appreciated this exciting talk, particularly the way that the speaker offered us new information about Brussels, the place where many of our members live. The speaker showed us the map of Brussels in 1780. We see the Royal Park is in the centre and to the right there is the Royal palace. The old map shows the design of the quarter after the old palace had been destroyed by fire. He showed the map of today’s Brussels and superimposed on it the image of the Tree of Life. It is obvious that the plan follows the Tree of Life pattern.
De Bruin showed the audience several slides. On each of them the configuration of the stars is mimicked in the plans of the city parks and buildings. For example, if we look at a statue of the crusader Godefroid de Bouillon in the centre of the Royal square, we see a straight line connecting it with the St. Michel statue on top of the gothic Town Hall tower and the Basilique in Koekelberg in the distance.
Furthermore, the speaker demonstrated that the Colonne du Congrès with a statue of King Leopold on top is turned 33 degrees to a sun-like star in heaven that appears just above three stars of the Orion Constellation. In his opinion, this refers to the three Magi from the East following the star of Bethlehem. The king of Belgium was crowned on 21 July, the date on which the first of these stars appears on the horizon just before sunrise. Indeed, King Leopold was coronated on 21 July 1831. The speaker showed that the same principle was used when the Washington Memorial obelisk was built around the same time. This monument is aligned with the rise of the Orion stars just before sunrise, which occurs in Washington on the Fourth of July (Independence Day).
In short, he proved that there are many traces of Egyptology and the image of the Tree of Life in Brussels. These include another park, the Parc du Cinquantenaire. The talk overwhelmed us with information and some facts left us puzzled. But the main thing was obvious – these Brussels 1. Keter (Crown/Origin) 2. Hokmah (Wisdom) 3. Binah (Understanding) 4.

Da'at (Higher Knowledge/Consciousness) parks do represent the Tree of Life, while other parks are part of a star map. Thus, Brussels is connected with Egypt and with the Tree of Life. And we can say that it is a heavenly city.
