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..

TM Sacred Geometry :: Knights Templar Geometry OS 272 1:25000 This is the only interacting geometry I have found relating to the inland lighthouse built by the occultist and Hell Fire Club creator , Sir Francis Dashwood who lived at Nocton Hall, just to the east of Dunston Pillar. UPDATE FEB 2/2008 - More Geometry - Dashwoods lighthouse is positioned on the line if the main circle is squared. . In fact today held a surprise for me as I discovered another church not on the current OS maps… seems fate delivered to my mental inbox just what I needed at just the right time, to complete this article. The first line discovered splits the pentacle leg perfectly , exits through the pentacle shoulder junction and onto Dunston Pillar. Once I found this I wondered where the other equal pentacle leg /arm divisions would lead, if drawn in/followed through.

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.

About Sacred Geometry Introduction Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of Creation and the genesis of all form. It is an ancient science that explores and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all things and reveals the precise way that the energy of Creation organizes itself. On every scale, every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more geometric shapes. As you enter the world of Sacred Geometry you begin to see as never before the wonderfully patterned beauty of Creation. The ancients believed that the experience of Sacred Geometry was essential to the education of the soul. The gift of lightSource is that it actually allows you to experience that essential self within the designs of pure Source energy. As far back as Greek Mystery schools 2500 years ago, we as a species were taught that there are five perfect 3-dimensional forms -The tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. All types of crystals, natural and cultured. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2.

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.

Sacred Geometry NUMEROLOGY OF METAPHYSICS: Archaic Mathematics of the Occult Science The understanding of cosmology depends predominantly on the language and practice of the four ancient intellectual disciplines (arithmetic, geometry, music, astronomy). Arithmetic evaluates number. Geometry (our cosmological mind map), “earth measure,” is the basic science of natural law, which evaluates number in space. Music evaluates number in time. Astronomy evaluates number in space-time. The practice of geometry functions only on a certain level of reality, the archetypal consciousness (the internal/spiritual realm). To Plato (427 BCE), reality consisted of essential archetypal ideas, and physical perceived phenomena are only mere reflections.

Ancient cultures may have symbolized eternal processes as gods, or lines of action through which the spirit condenses into energy and matter. ?

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.

Role of Huge Geometric Circular Structures in the Reproduction of a Marine Pufferfish : Scientific Reports A total of 10 male reproductive processes (the process of preparing for spawning and subsequently performing egg care) were observed in 2 observation areas set up on the sandy bottom off Seisui and Katetsu (Fig. 2). Two males appeared in each observation area, and no other male was observed in these areas. Although they were not tagged, at least the males at S1 and S3 and K1 and K3 were identified as the same individuals by the presence of lateral body scars in the former and the construction of another new circular structure during egg-care in the latter (Fig. 2). This is to say the actual number of male individuals in the study areas ranged from 4 (in the case that males at S1, S3 and S5; S2, S4 and S6; K1 and K3; and K2 and K4 were the same individuals, respectively) to 8 (in the case that all males except those at S1 and S3, and K1 and K3 were different individuals). S1–6 and K1–4 indicate circular structures found at Seisui and Katetsu, respectively. Full size image (125 KB)

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:
