Sacred Geometry

einsteins-1934-blackboard-at-oxfordI never liked math all through school, it was drudge work, although the memorization of multiplication tables did prove useful. I got good grades. but it all was a nuisance. My relationship with math went completely to hell in high school, thanks to a certain teacher. I barely made it through with my sanity, although again I managed to get a decent grade, largely by transferring to a different class and instructor.

At university, I was struggling with trigonometry, having skipped it to avoid that certain teacher. My professor was a wonderful man. He took me aside and told me he had talked to my other professors. I had no problem in engineering, physics or chemistry, so what could he do to help? He knew I was capable. I said I would see about a tutor but in fact I saw a hypnotist. The next week, after our quiz, he stopped at my desk when handing back the papers and said “See me after class.” I was sure I had failed! In fact I had gotten every problem right plus bonus points for doing extra credit questions.He was amazed when I told him about the hypnotist.

Succulent4-7-2010While the hypnotist exorcised my blocks and phobias in regards math, it was not until much later I discovered the real cure for dislike of math. It was through history and art the door opened. I discovered sacred geometry, as I can best recall in a Greek History class at university. Plato was a much better teacher that the one I had in high school. As an artist I could relate to someone who found profound things in shapes.

The term “sacred geometry” is used by archaeologists, anthropologists, and geometricians to encompass the religious, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs that have sprung up around geometry in various cultures during the course of human history.

Sacred geometry involves sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in our reality, most often seen in sacred architecture and sacred art. The basic belief is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, cosmology. This value system is seen as widespread even in prehistory, a cultural universal of the human condition.

The Greeks taught that these five solids were the core patterns of physical creation. Four of the solids were seen as the archetypal patterns behind the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water), while the fifth was held to be the pattern behind the life force itself, the Greeks’ ether.

 

The theory of the ‘Harmony of the Spheres’ proposed by Plato who died around 347BC  follower of Pythagoras and who shared his belief that the universe’s secrets lay maths and its numbers., in which he envisioned the five ‘perfect’ solids to be enclosed within imaginary spheres, each placed within the other. He proposed that the distances of the planets from the sun showed similar ratios from each other as the spheres surrounding each solids did. Modern science has indeed shown that planets have unique ‘vibrations’, or ‘sounds’ supporting Plato’s conjecture.

The Golden Ratio – The Divine Scale 
The golden ratio describes the special relationship found in nature between two parts of a whole.  It can be described in terms of number, length, area, volume and, to a certain degree, beauty and consciousness.
We are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm. The structure of the human body is based upon the same set of principles that are found functioning on all levels of creation. Our body contains within it holographically all the information of the universe.

Initiation into understanding
• The Universe is made of one substance and has one shape – the Sine Wave.
• The world is made up of waves and sacred proportions.
• Geometry produces symmetry. Waves get permission to arrange themselves and to store memory from ‘ONENESS’, through the Golden Mean ‘Phi’ ratio – the secret of the universe and the most accurate scientific pure principle to describe how things relate and function, evolve, change and manifest.
• Waves are drawn to FOCUS and automatically sort themselves and agree to sustain via Sacred Geometry. They align to still points, creating ‘CHARGE’, ‘ecstasy’ and LIFE FORCE.
• When the harmonics of the brain-body-heart-planet enter into NESTING, they do so by the principal of FRACTALITY. The small is within the large; the pattern of your fingertip is the same as the galaxy.
• The doorway of perception is to holographically connect all of life processes – past, present and future.

Because the Pythagoreans thought that the heavenly bodies were separated from one another by intervals corresponding to the harmonic lengths of strings, they held that the movement of the spheres gives rise to a musical sound called the “harmony of the spheres.”

These are: – the tetrahedron (4 faces), cube (6 faces), octahedron (8 faces), dodecahedron (12 faces) and icosahedron (20 faces). They get their name from the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato (c427-347BC) who wrote about them in his treatise, Timaeus.
