Ancient Egyptians as Experts in Geometry

The Egyptians desired to create harmony in everything around them. The balance and symmetry of their ancient structures–from the pyramids and temples, to statues and obelisks–are testimonies to the Egyptian’s standard for harmony. This standard is translated into Sacred Geometry, the geometry employed in their sacred architecture. The primary principle behind this is the relationship between progression and proportion. This series of progression and proportion, occurring naturally in the universe (e.g. in the number of layers in a chambered nautilus or petals of a flower) is evident in Egypt’s buildings and design.

Aside from this sacred series, there is also the “sacred ratio” or the “golden ratio” applied extensively to hieroglyphs, pyramids and other monuments. Introduction to Ancient Egypt.

From right to left: Isis, her husband Osiris, and their son Horus, the protagonists of the Osiris myth, in a Twenty-second Dynasty statuette The Osiris myth reached its basic form in or before the 24th century BCE. Many of its elements originated in religious ideas, but the conflict between Horus and Set may have been partly inspired by a regional struggle in Egypt's early history or prehistory. Scholars have tried to discern the exact nature of the events that gave rise to the story, but they have reached no definitive conclusions.
