The Meaning of Sacred Geometry

The Meaning of Sacred Geometry
Most of us tend to think of geometry as a relatively dry, if not altogether boring, subject remembered from our Middle school years, consisting of endless axioms, definitions, postulates and proofs, hearkening back, in fact, to the methodology of Euclids Elements, in form and structure a masterly exposition of logical thinking and mental training but not the most thrilling read one might undertake in their leisure time. While the modern, academic approach to the study of geometry sees it as the very embodiment of rationalism and left brain, intellectual processes, which indeed it is, it has neglected the right brain, intuitive, artistic dimension of the subject. Sacred geometry seeks to unite and synthesize these two dynamic and complementary aspects of geometry into an integrated whole. Geometry as a Woman Further differentiating Sacred Geometry from the ordinary geometry of our school days is its’ relation to number and symbol. An old Masonic lecture from several centuries ago states: Related:  Sequenze, frattali, geometrie sacrePhysics and..

Sacred Geometry Introductory Tutorial by Bruce Rawles Great site on natural law and basics of sacred geometry….check it out!-A.M. In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. The Sphere (charcoal sketch of a sphere by Nancy Bolton-Rawles) Starting with what may be the simplest and most perfect of forms, the sphere is an ultimate expression of unity, completeness, and integrity. The Circle The circle is a two-dimensional shadow of the sphere which is regarded throughout cultural history as an icon of the ineffable oneness; the indivisible fulfillment of the Universe. The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, Pi, is the original transcendental and irrational number. The Point At the center of a circle or a sphere is always an infinitesimal point. Almost everywhere we look, the mineral intelligence embodied within crystalline structures follows a geometry unfaltering in its exactitude.

The Great Pi Conspiracy: Are We Using the Wrong Pi? My understanding of pi is that it is 3.141 with endless number. In other words, pi is a set of numbers that has no ending. It is infinite just like a circle. To solve the infinite pi problem, the Dark Forces and their minions (the Elites) created the whole number system and rounded the infinite natural pi down to numbers that can be multiplied and divided. Pi is known as a transcendental number. In mathematics, a transcendental number is a real or complex number that is not algebraic—that is, it is not a root of a non-zero polynomial equation with rational coefficients. As defined at Pi (π), the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet, is used to represent the most widely known mathematical constant. Although I do not agree with everything in the article below, it does have some great information on pi.

Supersymmetry: The Future of Physics Explained The rumored upcoming announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson on July 4 would put in place the last major thread of the Standard Model of physics. This might sound like the case is closed on how the universe works, but though the Standard Model answers many questions and has been very effective at predicting the existence of particles that were subsequently discovered, it also spawns a whole new set of questions that could prove very tough to conquer. Knowing the mass of the Higgs would be a spectacular achievement, said theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss of Arizona State University, whose book about the intricacies of particle physics, Universe From Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing, came out in January. “But if that’s all they discover it could be bad for everyone because it doesn’t tell you how to solve the problems of the Standard Model.” That’s where supersymmetry comes in. Already, experiments have excluded the simplest supersymmetric theories.

Bisection of Yin and Yang The flag of South Korea (and of Kingdom of Korea from 1883) contains the ancient yin-yang symbol (Taijitu in Chinese, Tomoye in Japanese and Taegeuk in Korean) that represents the struggle, merger and co-existence of two opposites (could be hot/cold, male/female, sky/earth, moon/sun, etc.) The symbol is composed of two regions of a circle separated by two semicircles of half the radius of the big circle. Solution 1 This one requires no proof. Solution 2 Part of the Yin (black) piece below the horizontal diameter of the big circle is a semicircle with area πR²/8, where R is assumed to be the radius of the big circle, so that the small semicircle is of radius R/2. Solution 3 The dashed circle has radius R/√2. Solution 4 The reflection in the horizontal diameter of the big circle creates a second Yin-Yang pair of regions whose borderline supplies the necessary cut. Solution 5 For this proof, we set x = R(√5 - 1)/4. Solution 6 Application of the Carpet Theorem Area(S1 ∩ T1) = Area(S2 ∩ T2). Reference

Supersymmetry The Standard Model has worked beautifully to predict what experiments have shown so far about the basic building blocks of matter, but physicists recognize that it is incomplete. Supersymmetry is an extension of the Standard Model that aims to fill some of the gaps. It predicts a partner particle for each particle in the Standard Model. These new particles would solve a major problem with the Standard Model – fixing the mass of the Higgs boson. If the theory is correct, supersymmetric particles should appear in collisions at the LHC. At first sight, the Standard Model seems to predict that all particles should be massless, an idea at odds with what we observe around us. Supersymmetry would also link the two different classes of particles known as fermions and bosons. Finally, in many theories scientists predict the lighest supersymmetric particle to be stable and electrically neutral and to interact weakly with the particles of the Standard Model.

The Philosopher Stoned: Rodin Fibonacci Wheel Symmetries I would like to take a slightly deeper look at the Fibonacci/Rodin number wheel. But first, a quick review of Marko Rodin's vortex based mathematics for those that aren't so familiar. It is based on reducing all numbers to whole numbers, for example 25 = 2+5 = 7 or 1.156 = 1+1+5+6 = 13 = 1+3 = 4. From this we see very interesting patterns emerge. It may seem simple at first, but I believe it has far-reaching applications some of which we have seen in the development of the Rodin Coil. Notice first how 9 repeats itself always. These 6 remaining numbers can also be depicted as a doubling/halving circuit on the lazy infinity shape on this wheel. Now we turn to the Fibonacci wheel. Watch what happens when we run the Fibonacci series as Rodin numbers. First off, we notice that each number is directly opposite its inverted pair. 9 is 0, and 1 and 8 are the points of maximum potential. This 24 number circle can also be divided into 4 hexagrams.

Supersymmetry — What Is It? What is supersymmetry? Supersymmetry is a conjectured symmetry of space and time — and a unique one. It has been a very popular idea among theoretical physicists, for a number of reasons, for several decades — it was a hit back when I was a student, before physics was cool, and even well before. An automatic consequence of having this symmetry in nature is that every type of particle has one or more superpartners — other types of particles that share many of the same properties, but differ in a crucial way. What are fermions and bosons? Our world has many fermions — all the matter particles — and many bosons — all the force carriers. What is this symmetry, really? Einstein’s theory of relativity does a beautiful job of describing and predicting many aspects of our world. Where are those superpartner particles? Were supersymmetry an exact symmetry of nature, we would already have found many superpartners. But this exactly supersymmetric world is obviously not our world. Like this:

Welcome to the Labyrinthos Homepage Introduction to Supersymmetry 20th century physics has seen two major paradigm shifts in the way we understand Mother Nature. One is quantum mechanics, and the other is relativity. The marriage between the two, called quantum field theory, conceived an enfant terrible, namely anti-matter. As a result, the number of elementary particles doubled. We believe that 21st century physics is aimed at yet another level of marriage, this time between quantum mechanics and general relativity, Einstein's theory of gravity. The couple has not been getting along very well, resulting in mathematical inconsistencies, meaningless infinities, and negative probabilities. Why was anti-matter needed? On the other hand, Einstein's famous equation says that mass of a particle determines the energy of the particle at rest. (a) (b) (c) What saved the crisis was the existence of anti-matter, positron. Currently the Standard Model of particle physics is facing a similar crisis. Where are superpartners?

The Labyrinth Society: The Labyrinth Society The Mathematics Of The World Grid The Mathematics Of The World Grid by Bruce Cathie DEFINITIONS OF TERMS Harmony and harmonic etc. as defined by the Britannica World Standard Dictionary: HARMONY: A state of order, agreement, or completeness in the relations of things, or of parts of a whole to each other. (a). In this book I discuss the fundamental harmonies of the vibrational frequencies which form the building-blocks of our immediate universe; and those of the theoretical anti-universe which modern scientists have postulated as existing in mirror-like image of our own. Einstein stated that the geometric structure of space-time determines the physical processes. When physical matter is manifested in the universe the wave-forms of light from which it is formed are slowed down fractionally in order to release the energy required for the formation process. In a general way I was convinced that UFOs were actively engaged in a survey of the earth for some definite reason. The other sighting occurred on 12 March 1965. If,
