ABOUT THE PEOPLE
Walter Cruttenden is the founder of the Binary Research Institute (BRI); an archeoastronomy
think tank focused on celestial knowledge of ancient civilizations, with an emphasis
on precession mechanics. Based on this research Cruttenden has put forth the "Binary
Model" to better explain the Precession of the Equinox, the little- understood,
third motion of the Earth.
Cruttenden has had a life long interest in the science of archeoastronomy, mythology
and esoteric teachings. Prior to founding BRI, he was in the investment banking
business and one of the largest providers of IPO and private financing to science

banking interests to Fidelity and E*Trade and now devotes fulltime to BRI.
