The Divine Geometrician

All men and women are created equal in essence. However, to live in peace, they must relate to each other, and to the whole, according to developed levels of consciousness, as defined by the Law of Divine Proportions.

This Law of Right Relations states that the whole is to the greater as the greater is to the lesser. Conversely, the lesser is to the greater as the greater is to the whole.

The lesser consciousness of self-interest is to the greater consciousness of the common good —group consciousness— as the common good is to the One. This ratio is phi (0.618, with a lowercase p).

The One is to group consciousness as group consciousness is to selfishness. The ratio is Phi (1.618, with a capitalized P).

Phi and phi are reciprocal and complementary ratios, or reasons, derived from the mathematical properties of self-similarity.  

  • If you square Phi, you get a number exactly 1 greater than itself: 2.618…, or

Φ² = Φ + 1.

  • If you divide Phi into 1 to get its reciprocal, you get a number exactly 1 less than itself: 0.618…, or

1 / Φ = Φ – 1.


The One is revealed as an essential referent to achieve right human relations, wherein the sum, or the common good, is more than the addition of its parts, the fractions of self- interest.

Neither Phi nor phi are rational numbers but, rather, they are reasonable proportions. They cannot be reduced to a ratio of any two integers of self-interest. However, they can be reasonably related within the One, as the Golden Ratio of Divine Proportions.

The Mother of Creation — the Divine Geometrician — is unveiled by the Golden Ratio.  The geometrical representation of Phi is the five-pointed star, the figure drawn by the geocentric 8-year cycle of Venus.

True freedom is always circumscribed, inscribed within a whole. Individual rights —the lesser— must be integrated with social responsibility —the greater— for the good of the whole, the common good. This is the message encrypted in the urban design of the Temple of the Lady of Freedom, the District of Columbia, the capital of the United States of America.

Reflections on the Architectural Design of Washington, DC

For democracy to work, the sons and daughters of a country must relate to each other, and to their leaders, as their leaders relate to the Good, the True and the Beautiful.  This is an enlightened democracy, a hierarchical democracy.  

A democracy from the people (the lesser self-interest), by the enlightened people (the greater common good), and for the (sake of the) whole people (the One).

  • E pluribus unum
  • Annuit cœptis 
  • Novus ordo seclorum

Only then can the physical presence of the Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom and Compassion be possible among us for the first time since Atlantis. The self-interest advanced by the Dark Forces must be held in check by the freewill of humanity.

We must seal the door where evil of separateness dwells. Then and only then, can the Inner Government of the World externalize and the Lord Maitreya —the Christ, also known as the Imam Mahdi, the Kalki Avatar and the Bodhisattva— physically reappear on Earth.

So may it be.        


The Externalization of the Hierarchy

Owing to the fact that mankind is so weakened by pain, strain and suffering, the probability is that it will not be deemed wise for the Lords of Liberation directly to contact humanity. They will more probably do three things:

  1. Stand behind and strengthen the Rider on the white horse as He responds to the demand of the people everywhere, pouring through Him that dynamic energy which embodies the first divine aspect, the will aspect, the power expression. Thus, They will enable Him to carry out the will of God in such a manner that humanity can grasp [Page 271] what is being done. Mankind will then see the Love which animates the Will and Power of God. The true significance of liberty will then be revealed. It is not yet understood.
  2. Pour Their strengthening will-to-good into the New Group of World Servers in all lands, so that there may be potent, simultaneous action in line with the purposes of the Rider from the secret place.
  3. Stimulate, and integrate into the minds of certain advanced disciples, a number of new ideals which must govern the liberating process and find expression in the New Age. This was done in a small way at the time of the French Revolution when the three major concepts of freedom were expressed in the three words, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, and were intellectually presented to the race. These have now been temporarily relinquished, and this in itself constitutes an important symbolic happening. It had to occur, because these three words stood for no factual truth but simply for a hope and for an academic concept; the events of the last few months reduced them to a farce. So, they were deliberately withdrawn in order to enhance their importance and will later be restored and will then assume a new and potent significance in the minds of all men. They are the three words which must govern the New Age.

Certain racial interpretations of ideals will also have to disappear in order to be succeeded by new and better ones. This applies even to man’s understanding of the three words which we have been considering.

  • Liberty,” as the Lords of Liberation may endorse it, is in reality the recognition of right human relations, freely adjusted, willingly undertaken and motivated by a sense of responsibility which will act as a protective wall; this will take place, not through coercive measures, but through correct interpretation and quick appreciation by the masses, who are apt to confound licence (personality freedom to do as the lower nature chooses) and liberty of soul and conscience. Yet this liberty is the easiest aspect of the divine will for humanity to grasp. [Page 272] It is in reality the first revelation given to man of the nature of the Will of God and of the quality of Shamballa.
  • Equality” is that peculiar understanding which the Coming One will reveal and which is based on a right sense of proportion, correct Self-respect, and understanding of the spiritual, yet natural, laws of Rebirth and of Cause and Effect, and which will be founded in future centuries on the recognition of the age of a soul’s experience and gained development, and not at all on the loud emphatic affirmation that “all men are equal.”
  • Fraternity” is something that humanity itself will contribute as an expression of the third aspect of divinity, basing it on right contact and right reaction to contact.

Thus, there will be developed gradually the true life-theme of humanity, which is brotherhood, founded on divine origin (equality) and leading to a free and true expression of divinity (liberty).

Perhaps with these thoughts in mind, this first stanza of the new Invocation will assume more importance, and you will then be able intelligently to invoke Those Who can inspire to right action, thus bringing succour, and call forth the One Who can save the situation through right leadership.

A New Day


From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Reflections on the Architectural Design of Washington, DC

The US Capitol is the center of the architectural design of Washington, D.C. because, in a democracy, the political power emanates from the House of the People.

The US Capitol may be visualized as a cubical (six-sided) house. The bottom, west, top, and east sides of the cube unfold westwardly. At the third fold, the two remaining sides unfold north and south. A cross is formed.

Viewed eastward from the original eastern side of the cube, the cross appears inverted because, in a democracy, the view from the top tends to distort the real needs of the people. Only when viewed from the bottom of the cross —the Capitol— are the real needs addressed.  

From the very top of that cross, Abraham Lincoln —a racial Avatar— keeps reminding us that government should be from the people, by the people and for the people. At his feet, the two short arms of the cross point north to the house of the federal President, and south to the restraining force of anti-federalism, the Jefferson Memorial.

These two forces —a strong central government opposing strong state governments— have shaped the political history of the United States. At the heart of this yin-yang polarity is the Washington Obelisk, a reminder that the first President of the United States stood at a neutral stance, preferring a nonpartisan political system.

From the center of the cross, the Federal Triangle is drawn. The longer sides point to the House of the People, as George Washington reminds us that democracy will die if the power grabbing tendency of the White House would ever rule unchecked. The White House would then become a Black Hole dragging the cross into a Dark Cube.  

The octagon inscribing the White House has witnessed good office holders aligned with the needs of the people (5-pointed stars), and those grabbing power for selfish purposes (inverted pentagrams). The federal triangle points to the US Capitol for balance, as it radiates light eastward. Of this Columbia, the Goddess of Liberty solemnly standing on its dome, serves as its eternal symbol.

Eastward from the US Capitol stand two buildings symbolizing forces also counter-balancing the power grabbing tendencies of the White House. These are US Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. The annual path of the Sun as it rises every day on the Eastern horizon can be tracked by this Triangle of Wisdom and Enlightenment.

Architecturally, the All-Seeing Eye —the Capitol Hill— is the capstone of the 13-rung Pyramid built upwards from the west below to the east above. This is the “shining city on a hill” envisioned by the Founding Fathers. And still, the Statue of Freedom at the dome —Columbia—carries no flaming torch.

The Path of Freedom is veiling a further revelation. As hinted by the French people, the majestic Temple designed by L’Enfant has another extension to unfold. The gifted Statue of Liberty at Liberty Island —another Temple— may serve as a timely reminder.   

When will the two Ladies meet? Or are They the same Goddess garbed in different garments? There is a prophecy that New York will become the new center of political power in the United States. An Olympian relay handoff may be in the offing, not just for the United States, but for humanity.

In serene expectancy, we await, and toil, and rest again, until the appointed time.

We shall overcome. Yes, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and John Lewis. We shall overcome, some day.

The Cross of Divinity would be visualized from the East (Capitol), as in “Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back (Capricorn).

Figure 3. Cross of Divinity

“He who faces the light and stands within its radiance is blinded to the issues of the world of men; he passes on the Lighted Way to the great Centre of Absorption. But he who feels the urge to pass that way, yet loves his brother on the darkened path, revolves upon the pedestal of light and turns the other way.

“He faces towards the dark, and then the seven points of light within himself transmit the outward streaming light, and lo! the face of those upon the darkened way receives that light. For them the way is not so dark. Behind the warriors–twixt the light and dark–blazes the light of Hierarchy.”

The Unfolding Cube
(Hexahedron, 6-sided Platonic Solid)

Let it evoke response from the bright centre, lying far ahead. -Fourteen Rules for Group Initiation ( Rule 3):

To this centre we give the name Shamballa, the component letters of which are numerically: S.H.A.M.B.A.L.L.A. or This word equals the number 24 which in its turn equals 6. I would call your attention to the fact that the word has in it nine letters, and—as you know—nine is the number of initiation. The goal of all the initiatory process is to admit mankind into realisation of and identification with the will or purpose of Deity. The number 6 is the number of form or of manifestation, which is the agent or medium through which this realisation comes and by which the consciousness is unfolded so that it can become the foundation of the higher process which is instituted at the third initiation. That initiation is closely related to the third major centre, Shamballa; it is the third, from the angle of man’s perception and understanding, but the first from the angle of Deity Itself. Again, 6 being the number of the sixth ray, it is therefore the number of idealism and of that driving force which makes mankind move forward upon the path and in response to the vision and press upward towards the light. It is in reality devotion to an unseen goal, ever on ahead, and an unswerving recognition of the objective. Like all other divine qualities, it has its material counterpart, and that is why 666 is regarded as the number of the Beast or of materialism, the number of the [Page 80] dominance of the three worlds prior to the process of reorientation and the expression of developed idealism and purpose. The third aspect expresses itself through pure materialism, and hence the three sixes. In an ancient book on numbers the initiate is defined as “the one who has experienced and expressed 666 and found it naught; who has dropped the 6 and become the 66, and thus has found himself upon the WAY; later, again, he drops the 6 and becomes the perfected 6—form, the instrument and expression of spirit.”

The number 24 is of deep interest, expressing as it does the double 12—the greater and the lesser zodiac. Just as the number 6 expresses space, so the number 24 expresses time, and is the key to the great cycle of manifestation. It is the clue to all cyclic appearance or incarnation. Its two figures define the method of evolution; 2 equals the quality of love-wisdom, working under the Law of Attraction and drawing man from one point of attainment to another; whilst 4 indicates the technique of conflict and the achieving of harmony through that conflict; 4 is also the number of the human hierarchy, and 2 is the number of the spiritual hierarchy. Technically speaking, until the third initiation, the initiate is “occupied with the relationship of the 2 and the 4; these, when placed side by side, connote relation; and when placed the one above the other, the initiate passes from the 4 into the 2.” Needless to say, there is much more to say anent these figures, but the above will suffice to show the satisfactory nature of esoteric numerology—not numerology as understood today.

I would have you note that the sounds which compose the word “Shamballa” are predominantly along the line of will or power or of first ray energy. Of the nine letters, six are on the first ray line of force.—spirit and matter, will and intelligence. Two of them are along the second line of force, 4 and 2. The number 8 inaugurates ever a new cycle, following after the number 7, which is that of a relative perfection. It is the number of the Christ-consciousness; just as 7 is the number of man, 8 is the [Page 81] number of the Hierarchy, and 9 is the number of initiation or of Shamballa. Forget not that, from the angle of the Hierarchy, the third initiation is regarded as the first major initiation.

Rays and Initiations

City layout – City plan

Washington’s visionary planner was Pierre Charles L’Enfant, a French army engineer who fought in the American Revolution. Two factors strongly influenced L’Enfant’s imagination as he planned the capital city: his understanding of 18th-century Baroque landscape architecture and his familiarity with the city of Paris and the grounds of Versailles. L’Enfant adapted the city’s formal plan to the area’s natural topography, carefully selecting important sites for principal buildings on the basis of the order of their importance, beginning with the U.S. Capitol building, which he placed on a high ridge. He then symbolically linked it, by way of Pennsylvania Avenue, to the presidential palace (the White House), on a slightly lower ridge.

Placing the Capitol at the centre of the street plan, L’Enfant drew surveyors’ lines through the building to the points of the compass, thereby separating the city into four sections: Northwest (the largest quadrant), Northeast, Southeast, and Southwest. Three of the four surveyors’ lines became streets: North Capitol, East Capitol, and South Capitol streets. The fourth dividing line stretches west from the Capitol along the middle of the Mall to the Potomac River.

Washington’s streets are organized in a scheme of broad diagonal avenues overlain on a grid of wide north-south- and east-west-trending streets. Thus, an orderly web of wide tree-lined avenues creates great vistas and leads both to powerful focal points and open public spaces. The intersections of two or three diagonal avenues are punctuated with landscaped circles and squares, while their intersections with grid streets create triangular and trapezoidal lots and parks, resulting in interesting streetscapes.

Figure 5

Washington D.C. was established in 1790 when an act of Congress authorized a federal district along the Potomac River, a location offering an easy route to the western frontier (via the Potomac and Ohio River valleys) and conveniently situated between the northern and southern states.

Figure 6

President Washington chose an area of land measuring 100 square miles where the Eastern Branch (today’s Anacostia River) met the Potomac just north of Mount Vernon, his Virginia home. The site already contained the lively port towns of Alexandria and Georgetown, but the new nation needed a federal center with space dedicated to government buildings.

Washington asked L’Enfant, by then an established architect, to survey the area and recommend locations for buildings and streets. The Frenchman arrived in Georgetown on a rainy night in March 1791 and immediately got to work.

L’Enfant placed Congress on a high point with a commanding view of the Potomac, instead of reserving the grandest spot for the leader’s palace as was customary in Europe. Capitol Hill became the center of the city from which diagonal avenues named after the states radiated, cutting across a grid street system.

In 1901, the Senate formed the McMillan Commission, a team of architects and planners who updated the capital based largely on L’Enfant’s original framework. They planned an extensive park system, and the Mall was cleared and straightened. Reclaimed land dredged from the river expanded the park to the west and south, making room for the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials. The Commission’s work finally created the famous green center and plentiful monuments of today’s Washington.

Figure 7. Founded on July 16, 1790, Washington, DC

Why do people say the National Mall is built on a swamp?

The National Mall was built on low, flat land surrounded by three waterways: the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, and until the 1870s, Tiber Creek. During the 1800s, heavy rains and flooding frequently saturated the landscape, sometimes creating puddles the size of small ponds. Residents and visitors described the area as a swamp, particularly before the monuments and museums were built. A myth grew that the National Mall was built on swamp when, in fact, only part of the Mall was originally marshland or tidal plain.

Washington, DeCoded: Historical Archaeology Meets Sacred Geometry


The Technique of Light is more closely related to the mind and signifies the method whereby the illumination which flows from the soul (whose nature is light) can irradiate not only ideals but life, circumstances and events, revealing the cause and the meaning of the experience. When the power of the disciple to illumine is grasped, he has taken the first step towards dispelling glamour; and just as the technique of the Presence becomes effective upon the mental plane, so this technique produces powers which can become effective on the astral plane and eventually bring about the dissipation and the disappearance of that plane.


(Technique for a Group)

The Preparatory Stages.

  1. The naming of the group members, followed by ten minutes silence.
  2. The Protective Formula: The group members say in unison:

As a soul I work in light and darkness cannot touch me.
I take my stand within the light.
I work and from that point I never move.

As these words are uttered, each group member makes the sign of the Cross of Divinity.

  1. The three preparatory stages:
  • a. Focussing the dual light of matter and mind.
  • b. Meditation on soul contact and recognition of soul light.
  • c. The fusion of the two lesser lights with soul light.
  1. On a signal from the leader, the group says together:

“The light is one and in that light shall we see light. This is the light that turns the darkness into day.

O M. O M. O M.

The Formula.

  1. Then together the group says:

Radiance are we and power. We stand forever with our hands stretched out, linking the heavens and the earth, the inner world of meaning and the subtle world of glamour.

We reach into the light and bring it down to meet the need. We reach into the silent Place and bring from thence the gift of understanding. Thus with the light we work and turn the darkness into day.

As these words are said, the group members visualise the great searchlight they have created turning its light upon the astral plane.

  1. A pause follows and then comes the invocation of the spiritual will. When this has been done the group says:

With power upon its beam, the light is focussed on the goal.

  1. The glamour to be dissipated is named and the light is thrown upon it. The Words of Power are uttered :

The power of our united light prevents the appearance of the glamour of… (naming it).

The power of our united light negates the quality of the glamour from affecting man.

The power of our united light destroys the life behind the glamour.

  1. Visualisation of the light, penetrating into the glamour and producing its weakening and dissipation.
  2. Five minutes of silence and intensity of purpose whilst the work is seen proceeding. Then the group members refocus themselves upon the mental plane, turning their attention away from the astral plane. The searchlight of the soul is shut off.
  3. The sounding of the OM individually and aloud by each member.

On neutrality and fascism

Jason Stanley has spent the past decade studying fascism, from Mussolini to Duterte. In this video op-ed, he argues that yes, we should be worried: If Americans are not vigilant, fascism could become a new reality in the United States.

Three Essential Features of Fascism:

  • Invoking a Mythic Past
  • Sowing Division
  • Attacking Truth

Seven lessons from the 2016-2020 MAGA Civil War

  1. No one is above the law.
  1. There is no double standard in asserting that truths are right and lies are wrong.
  1. Racial supremacy is a lie.
  1. The free press is not the enemy of the people, but the custodian of freedom.
  1. Free speech does not imply the right to lie.
  1. In the absence of absolute certainty, the best approximation rules.
  1. The good is good, the true is true, the beautiful is beautiful: then, now, and forever.

It is not for me to tell you what humanity, through its statesmen and leaders, will plan to do at the coming conferences. It is my task to mobilise the New Group of World Servers and the men and women of goodwill so that they may stand as a great “army of implacable spiritual will” behind the participants in these conferences and councils, enabling them to think with clarity about the issues involved and thus (through this clear thinking) affect telepathically the minds of men; this involves the use of a power seldom employed as yet on the side of righteous endeavour, though already widely used by the materialistic leaders of the forces of evil.

January 5, 2021 GA runoff elections



12:00 PM EST:

This is a subliminal message from Fox News
encouraging Trump supporters to “Fight for Trump”
(slogan chanted in Trump rallies) -JB

More than 3 million people, or two-fifths (40%) of the state’s registered voters, have already cast a ballot in the runoffs, either through early in-person voting or by absentee ballot. And anywhere from 800,000 to possibly over a million people will vote on Election Day.

The polls in Georgia are scheduled to close at 7 p.m. ET on Election Day, and that’s when ballot counting is allowed to begin. Absentee ballots must be received by the poll-closing time to be counted. There is an exception for military and overseas ballots. If they’re postmarked by Tuesday and received by Friday, they will be counted. And absentee voters have until Friday to fix problems with their ballots so their votes can be counted.

While absentee ballots received ahead of Election Day can’t be counted until the polls close, county election officials were allowed to begin processing those ballots in advance. That includes verifying signatures on the outer envelope of the ballot, opening the envelopes, and scanning the ballots.

Perdue and Loeffler could jump out to an early lead Tuesday night for a couple of reasons. Republican areas of the state often report their results first, and Republican voters were more likely to vote on Election Day or at early in-person polling stations. Those votes are often counted first by many of Georgia’s counties.

Heavily Democratic counties — including in Atlanta and the surrounding inner suburbs — have traditionally seen slower in vote counting and election results. And since more Democrats than Republicans were expected to vote by absentee ballot, late returned ballots, which would be counted after in-person and Election Day votes, would likely favor Ossoff and Warnock.

One more thing to remember: If the final margins in either of the contests are within 0.5% of the vote, the losing candidate under Georgia law has the right to ask for a recount.


15:00 EST

Georgia may count ballots faster this time around.

Two factors work in favor of a faster count this time around. First, fewer races are on the ballot, which means less work for election officials. Second, after the general election, the Georgia State Election Board enacted a rule requiring counties to begin processing early and absentee ballots at least a week before future elections.

Officials can’t actually count the ballots until the polls close, but they can do all the time-consuming prep work. That means votes cast before election day — more than three million, according to Gabriel Sterling, a top state election official — should already be compiled, and pretty much all officials will need to do Tuesday night is hit “tabulate.”

In an extremely tight race, results could be delayed several days while late-arriving ballots come in.

Miss Freedom, originally named Goddess of Liberty, is the statue adorning the dome of the Georgia State Capitol since 1889. Commissioned in 1888, the hollow copper statue is painted white, weighs over 1600 lbs and is over 26 feet tall.

The statue wears a Phrygian cap or pileus, adorned with a star. It wears a robe and holds a torch in her right hand and a sword in her left. The torch is meant to represent truth or enlightenment while the sword symbolizes authoritative armed liberty or enforced justice

The torch is a functioning mercury-vapor lamp, casting a blue-green light at night.

Mantra of the New Group of World Servers

May the Power of the one Life pour through the group of all true servers.
May the Love of the One Soul characterize the lives of all who seek to aid the Great Ones.
May I fulfil my part in the One work through self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech.


Implacable Will

The Technique of Light for the dissipation of glamor is a method to settle differences among rational people. It doesn’t work when factual truths and proven lies are considered opposites to be reconciled into a “balanced” point of view.

The middle ground between factual truths and proven lies is zero. There are not two sides to be reconciled: one is righteous; the other one is delusional.

What is the appropriate spiritual technique to apply for delusional thinking? As MDR recently reminded us:

It is not for me to tell you what humanity, through its statesmen and leaders, will plan to do at the coming conferences. It is my task to mobilise the New Group of World Servers and the men and women of goodwill so that they may stand as a great “army of implacable spiritual will” behind the participants in these conferences and councils, enabling them to think with clarity about the issues involved and thus (through this clear thinking) affect telepathically the minds of men; this involves the use of a power seldom employed as yet on the side of righteous endeavour, though already widely used by the materialistic leaders of the forces of evil.

EOH 455

The Sixth Ray Technique of the Implacable Ruler must be aligned with the “implacable determination” of the Will-to-Good, leading to Shamballa, as it rents the Veils of Maya energized by the dark forces.

Will governs the Way into Shamballa and is the foundation for all approach to, appreciation of and identification with, Being.

This developed will expresses itself as tension, esoterically understood.  It embodies the ideas of orientation, implacable determination, ability to wait and to preserve intention and orientation unmoved by aught which may occur.  It also involves the determination to take the intended action (always of a creative nature and based on loving understanding) at the psychological moment (right timing), or that exact moment which the psyche or soul determines to be correct.

R&I 46:

Let us invoke for a decisive defeat of the dark forces
in the Battle of Georgia today.

Only and only then can the healing and reconstruction of the United States of America begin. The Christ must return for rural and blue-collar America too.   -JB

The HEALING of America

As representative of Rural America, Kansas City, divided by the Missouri river (as geographically the whole country is), would serve as a point of cleavage upon which to pour healing energies of goodwill on the aftermath of this 2020 divisive election.

A Georgia election official debunked Trump’s claims of voter fraud, point by point.

Jan. 4, 2021

By Maggie Astor

Gabriel Sterling, a top election official in Georgia, responded to President Trump’s false claims at a news conference in Atlanta on Monday.

In a searing news conference on Monday, Gabriel Sterling, a top election official in Georgia, systematically debunked President Trump’s false claims of voter fraud. Again.

“The reason I’m having to stand here today is because there are people in positions of authority and respect who have said their votes didn’t count, and it’s not true,” said Mr. Sterling, a Republican who last month condemned the president’s failure to denounce threats against election officials, and who was tasked on Monday with responding to the news of a phone call in which Mr. Trump pressured Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, to “find” enough votes to change the outcome of the presidential race.

“It’s anti-disinformation Monday,” Mr. Sterling said. “It’s whack-a-mole again, it’s Groundhog Day again, and I’m going to talk about things that I’ve talked about repeatedly for two months. I’m going to do it again one last time. I hope.”

Here is a rundown of the false claims about Georgia’s vote-counting that Mr. Trump and his lawyers made on the call and in other venues, and Mr. Sterling’s explanations of what actually happened.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That, amid the disruption caused by a broken water main at a vote-counting center in Fulton County, election workers brought in “suitcases or trunks” of ballots.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: Late in the evening, after the water main break had been fixed, election workers prepared to go home for the night and followed standard procedures to store ballots securely: placing them in containers and affixing numbered seals. But when Mr. Raffensperger found out that they were closing up shop, he ordered them to continue counting through the night — so the workers retrieved the containers and resumed counting ballots.

“This is what’s really frustrating: The president’s legal team had the entire tape,” Mr. Sterling said. “They watched the entire tape. They intentionally misled the State Senate, the voters and the people of the United States about this.”

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That workers scanned some batches of ballots multiple times.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: When a scanning machine encounters a problem, it stops, but a few ballots get through while it’s stopping. When that happens, workers take the ballots and scan them again so they’re counted properly. This is standard procedure, and the ballots aren’t counted twice — and if they were, the hand recount Georgia conducted would have shown it.

“That audit showed that there was no problem with the machine scanning,” Mr. Sterling said. “If somebody took a stack of ballots and scanned them multiple times, you would have a lot of votes with no corresponding ballots.”

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That tens of thousands of ineligible voters cast ballots.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: The actual number of ballots cast by ineligible voters is minuscule, and nowhere near enough to change the outcome of the election.

Mr. Sterling also addressed more specific claims about ineligible voters:

Mr. Trump said that thousands of people voted despite not being registered to vote. This is impossible, Mr. Sterling said: “You can’t do it. There cannot be a ballot issued to you, there’s no way to tie it back to you, there’s nowhere for them to have a name to correspond back to unless they’re registered voters. So that number is zero.”

Mr. Trump said that thousands of voters died before the election. Mr. Sterling said the secretary of state’s office had found only two who might fit that description.

Mr. Trump said that hundreds of people voted using P.O. boxes rather than a residential address. Mr. Sterling said that the secretary of state’s office was still investigating, but that everyone it had examined so far had, in fact, used a proper residential address — just one for a multifamily residence or apartment building.

Mr. Trump’s campaign said that many felons voted. In reality, using records from the state’s corrections and probation departments, the secretary of state’s office identified only 74 people who might fit that category — and Mr. Sterling said the final number would be even lower once the office completed its investigation, because in many cases, the person might have had their voting rights reinstated after completing a sentence or might simply have the same name as a felon.

Mr. Trump’s campaign said that tens of thousands of people younger than 18 voted. “The actual number is zero,” Mr. Sterling said, “and the reason we know that is because the dates are on the voter registration. There are four cases — four — where people requested their absentee ballot before they turned 18, but they turned 18 by Election Day. That means that is a legally cast ballot.”

Mr. Trump’s campaign said that hundreds of voters cast ballots in two states. Mr. Sterling said that officials were still investigating, but that if any such cases were confirmed, it would be “handfuls,” and nowhere near enough to change the outcome.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That machines flipped votes, counting Trump ballots as Biden ones.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: If this had happened, Mr. Sterling said, the hand recount would have shown it, and it did not show anything of the sort.

Discussing allegations of hacking, he added that ballot machines and scanners aren’t connected to the internet. “Neither one has modems,” Mr. Sterling said. “It’s very hard to hack things without modems.”

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That election officials did not properly verify signatures for mail-in ballots.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: The secretary of state’s office brought in signature experts, who examined more than 15,000 mail-in ballot envelopes. They found potential problems with only two, and upon investigation, both ballots turned out to be legitimate.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That, compared with previous election cycles, Georgia rejected a suspiciously low number of mail-in ballots.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: The decrease in rejections is attributable to a recently passed law that gives Georgians a chance to correct problems, such as a rejected signature, with their ballots. Both parties had teams roaming the state and contacting voters whose ballots were at risk of rejection, but Mr. Sterling said the Democrats were simply more prepared for the task.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That election officials shredded ballots.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: “There is no shredding of ballots going on,” Mr. Sterling said with clear annoyance. “That’s not real. It’s not happening.”

Workers did shred secrecy envelopes: the blank envelopes that protect the privacy of a voter’s absentee ballot and go inside an outer envelope. It’s the outer envelope that voters have to sign, and election officials have kept those outer envelopes as required by law. The secrecy envelopes, however, “have no evidentiary value,” Mr. Sterling said, because by definition they have no identifying information on them.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That employees of Dominion Voting Systems “moved the inner parts” of voting machines “and replaced them with other parts.”

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: “No one is changing parts or pieces out of Dominion voting machines. That’s not real. I don’t even know what that means.”

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That officials improperly counted “pristine” ballots — meaning ballots that weren’t folded, indicating that they hadn’t arrived in an envelope.

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: “Pristine” ballots aren’t unusual, Mr. Sterling said. For instance, many military and overseas voters receive electronic ballots that they print out, complete and mail back. But these printed ballots aren’t the right size for scanners, so election workers have a standard process for transferring the votes to scannable ballots. A ballot that gets damaged and can’t be scanned may be transferred in the same way.

TRUMP’S CLAIM: That Mr. Raffensperger is compromised because he has a brother who works for a Chinese technology company. (Mr. Trump was echoing a conspiracy theory about an unrelated man who happens to be named Ron Raffensperger.)

STERLING’S EXPLANATION: Mr. Raffensperger doesn’t have a brother named Ron.
