Ensign Software - ESPL: Dances of the Planets
The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos. There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realize. The idea for this article is from a book Larry Pesavento shared with me. The book, 'A Little Book of Coincidence' by John Martineau, illustrates the orbital patterns and several of their geometrical relationships. . Take the orbits of any two planets and draw a line between the two planet positions every few days. Earth: 8 years * 365.256 days/year = 2,922.05 days Venus: 13 years * 224.701 days/year = 2,921.11 days (ie. 99.9%) Watching the Earth-Venus dance for eight years creates this beautiful five-petal flower with the Sun at the center. (5 is another Fibonacci number.) Another intriguing fact is the ratio between the Earth's outer orbit and Venus's inner orbit is given by a square. In the following dance patterns, the planet pairing is given and the number of orbits of the outer planet. Article by Howard Arrington Related:  Dimensional / Sacred Geometry

Sacred Places: Sacred Geometry Courses in the history of art provide the student with an understanding of art and architecture in a cultural context. The student will be introduced to the means by which art can be critically observed, intelligently analyzed and knowledgeably discussed. ARTH 115, Survey of Art History I, and ARTH 116, Survey of Art History II, provide a survey of art from prehistoric times to the present and are the prerequisites to most upper level courses. Students considering majoring in art history should plan to complete ARTH 115 and ARTH 116 by the end of their sophomore year. Of value to art history majors are courses in literature, religion, philosophy, classical civilization and history.

Sacred Geometry Golden Ratio by Mark Freitag Most people are familiar with the number Pi, since it is one of the most ubiquitous irrational numbers known to man. But, there is another irrational number that has the same propensity for popping up and is not as well known as Pi. This wonderful number is Phi, and it has a tendency to turn up in a great number of places, a few of which will be discussed in this essay. One way to find Phi is to consider the solutions to the equation When solving this equation we find that the roots are x = ~ 1.618... or x= We consider the first root to be Phi. Phi = or Phi = We can use a spreadsheet to see that these two series do approximate the value of Phi. Or, we can show that the limit of the infinite series equals Phi in a more concrete way. Squaring both sides we have But this leads to the equation which in turn leads to and this has Phi as one of its roots. I have creted a GSP script for dividing a segment (given its endpoints) into the Golden ratio. We can also form a Golden Ellipse.

Vastu Shastra and Sacred Architecture | Sri Narasingha Chaitanya Ashram Temple built according to Vastu Shastra With the passing of the ages empires are created and destroyed, new cultures appear and then again fade, like changing seasons into the shadows of eternity. Vanishing into oblivion, all that remains of those that were once great and powerful in this world are but a handful of relics. Time, the destroyer of all things, vanquishes even the most invincible empires leaving behind their remnants to be marveled at by future civilizations. And marvel we do at the wonders of the past, especially the architectural wonders. Until recent years modern society has viewed much of the world's ancient architecture and art as "simply decorative" or, in a general sense, as a tribute to God; not that it might have any "practical" function in helping us to understand tha nature of the world we live in. Yali, Protector of the Temple. Most sacred architects maintain that the ultimate reality exists beyond the mundane plane of temporary forms. Jagannatha Puri Temple

The Sacred Geometry of Sound Sacred Geometry and the Structure of Music Legend recounts how Orpheus was given a lyre by Apollo. By playing his lyre, Orpheus produced harmonies that joined all of Nature together in peace and joy. Inspired by this Orphic tradition of music and science, Pythagoras of Samos conducted perhaps the world's first physics experiment. Like the seven naturally occurring colors of the rainbow, the octave of seven tones — indeed, all of Creation — is a singing matrix of frequencies that can be experienced as color, sound, matter, and states of consciousness. This correlation of sound, matter, and consciousness is important. I believe that this matrix of Creation is waiting for us to sound the most harmonious vibrating chord — to sound the universe itself into a perfect, idealized form. The Music of Atomic Shapes The Platonic solids, basic shapes of Sacred Geometry, are five three-dimensional geometric forms of which all faces are alike. The results were extraordinary.

Starting With Nothing and Ending Up With Everything by Bruce Rawles Question: What's black and white and blinks in and out of existence 1044 (a lot) times per second? And is in every 1/1033 cubic centimeter of space (every teeny tiny bit)? Answer: Hey ... Everything! Okay, it's time to dig down into the mental archives of your high school geometry class. If your geometry teacher was typical, the subject of the infinitesimal point was probably glossed over quickly to usher you into more "important" theorems and pragmatic applications. But let's hit the virtual PAUSE button on the subject of the point for a while, and give it the attention it deserves. The Infinitesimal Point A pure, ideal, mathematically pristine and glittering point occupies no space. Wait just a picosecond. If so, or even if you did boggle on it a while, let's explore the dimensionless point a bit further ... so you'll get my point ... about the point. Now that could come in handy. I've also found, to the delight of Ram Dass fans worldwide, that "here" appears to be quite portable.

NEW MOON: SACRED REALITY « Critical Trilogy Pisces New Moon; March 14, 2010 5:01 PM It was quite a synchronicity to open Orca Chantress Beluga Shaman by Leesa Sklover, a Jungian practitioner and enchanting chanteuse whom I heard speak at the Temenos Institute in Westport on Friday night. She played the Orca Chantress kundalini yoga chant at the close of her presentation,”A Jungian Look at Yoga Therapy, Meditation and Chant.” It was the most extraordinary blend of opposites (the spiritual and the sensual, the primal and the ecstatic) that I have ever heard! Leesa composes her world chants with her own exquisite voice blending into her collaborator Jim Nollman‘s interactions with dolphin and whales, along with wolves, bugs and birds! Check out Jim’s Interspecies Art Gallery! The music hits at my highest and lowest chakras simultaneously. She certainly has the sacred geometry down! It is the New Moon, after all, and the discovery brings to mind an alchemical image depicting the geometry of the six directions: sky: yod hey vav Like this:

High-temperature superconductor spills secret: A new phase of matter? Scientists have found the strongest evidence yet that a puzzling gap in the electronic structures of some high-temperature superconductors could indicate a new phase of matter. Understanding this "pseudogap" has been a 20-year quest for researchers who are trying to control and improve these breakthrough materials, with the ultimate goal of finding superconductors that operate at room temperature. "Our findings point to management and control of this other phase as the correct path toward optimizing these novel superconductors for energy applications, as well as searching for new superconductors," said Zhi-Xun Shen of the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Science (SIMES), a joint institute of the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University. Shen led the team of researchers that made the discovery; their findings appear in the March 25 issue of Science. The electrons in the pseudogap state aren't superconducting -- so what are they doing?

Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code Solar power without solar cells: A hidden magnetic effect of light could make it possible A dramatic and surprising magnetic effect of light discovered by University of Michigan researchers could lead to solar power without traditional semiconductor-based solar cells. The researchers found a way to make an "optical battery," said Stephen Rand, a professor in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Physics and Applied Physics. In the process, they overturned a century-old tenet of physics. "You could stare at the equations of motion all day and you will not see this possibility. Light has electric and magnetic components. "This could lead to a new kind of solar cell without semiconductors and without absorption to produce charge separation," Rand said. What makes this possible is a previously undetected brand of "optical rectification," says William Fisher, a doctoral student in applied physics. Rand and Fisher found that under the right circumstances and in other types of materials, the light's magnetic field can also create optical rectification.
