Huangyangtan and The Da Vinci Code

A certain Nigel W. from the UK (I believe) sent me an interesting email. He has been looking at some of the other discoveries I have made in Google Earth and has found some surprising connections. In one direction from the Huangyangtan scale model I had found a giant message in Tibetan (not Chinese) stamped into the frozen ice of a lake. It is the only Buddhist mantra visible from space. In the opposite direction I found that the photo of an airbase shows a MIG jet just as it took off from the runway (it's only a few meters above the tarmac).

Mr. W. found that all three locations line up. And the ratio of the distances lake > MIG vs lake > Huangyangtan is the Phi number popularized by Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code". Furthermore, if you draw another line perpendicular to this first one, starting at Huangyangtan, the second line goes to the tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China and the site where the famous Terracotta Army was found. The line extends further to the airbase of Xian, where multiple jets (perhaps long-range bombers) parked on the runway point back to the model in Huangyangtan.

Are you feeling scared, dear reader?
