An awareness and appreciation of the beauty of symmetry and harmony that can be found in all of nature must surely have been responsible for the intuitive leap of the author's imagination to cause the creation of these mathematical tables. Number summations and symmetrical combinations discovered in the tables represent many of the exact measurements made at the Great Pyramid of Giza. Other numbers that occur continually in the tables represent physical earth measurements of such things as size, density, angular velocity, and rotational energy, or harmonics thereof.
There were some synchronistic events involved in the creation of this book and the author has chosen to show such happenings as side notes in the Appendix in order to minimize any aura of mysticism that might be cast over these tables.

Serving as a merchant seaman in his late teens during the height of World War II, and later sailing as a deck officer in the early post-war era, provided the author with a keen perception and a first understanding of the mechanics of the universe. His early seagoing training in navigation had raised in him the desire to gain a greater knowledge of the world he lived in.
During the 60's Turbeville obtained two degrees in Physics and began an academic career of management, teaching, and research at the University of South Florida. In the 70's, he received funding from the Federal Seagrant Program for the development of an oil spill recovery concept for which patents were later issued. This work also provided the opportunity to spend a year as an invited research associate with SINTEF at the University of Trondheim in Norway.
By the mid 80's Turbeville had moved from Florida to the North Carolina mountains in the first step toward early retirement. This moved him out of the "big city" and into a more peaceful environment, one that would be conducive to other kinds of creative activity.
From the fall of 89 through the spring of 91 Turbeville taught at the University of Western North Carolina on a part-time basis as he began to settle into a slower pace of life.
