Natural Sacred Geometry
Sacred Geometry Exposed in Everyday Nature
The intersection of physics and mysticism may be found at the intersection of sacred geometry. It is the domain in which the infinities coexist with the forms of the finite and the disorder of the creative process is brought to order.
Sacred geometry’s real charm lies in the fact that it can be understood by both the right and left sides of the brain. Exquisite representations of compelling proportional connections excite the cerebral and creative functions simultaneously, uniting the concrete and the intangible.
The need to convey abstract philosophical ideas in more tangible ways is what gave birth to the field of sacred geometry.
It presents a scientific approach for philosophical investigation, replete with hypotheses, tests, and conclusions that may be replicated.
Drawing the basic forms seen in nature is the most effective method for learning about their structure. To get the most out of this blog post, I recommend that you go out and get some paper, pencils, a compass, and a straight edge so that you may replicate the experiments that are detailed here in the comfort of your own home.
We are about to set sail on an adventure that will take us through the process of creation as it manifests itself in circles, lines, spheres, and spirals.
A word of caution: emotional connection with these forms may be crazily satisfying. What starts out as purely formulaic may quickly become more mystical than anybody could have ever anticipated.
The Three Stages of Development
Let’s begin by discussing the many stages of a fruit tree’s existence as a means of introducing the topic.
A seed travels through time until it reaches the ground, where it is buried and eventually sprouts. As a result of the division of its cells, the seed develops into a young plant.
The tree finally develops a sturdy trunk and blooms, which is a good sign that it will produce a large number of fruits in the future.
When they are ready, some of the fruits will fall to the ground. The flesh decomposes into compost, which then nourishes the new seeds that have been planted underground, where they are patiently waiting for the day when the process will begin again.
This cycle should be excruciatingly familiar to everyone who has had even the most minimal amount of human experience.
People, much like plants, are born, grow up, give fruit, degrade, and eventually die in order to provide nourishment for something else that is being born. Sacred geometry’s most basic operations are a reflection of this same pattern in its patterns and structures.
Our adventure starts with a single circle, which may either be viewed as a sphere or depicted as a dot on a circle. This is still not a seed, but it has the potential to become one. This initial circle is an abstract idea that acts as both the ever-present center point and the container for all that follows.
If you are sketching as you go, now is a good moment to get out your compass and create a circle in the middle of your paper. However, keep in mind that this circle should be far smaller than you had originally desired.
The process of duplication is the first step on the path that leads to fulfillment. Place the point of the compass anywhere along the circumference of the first circle, making sure that the radius of the compass is set to exactly the same value, and then create a second circle such that the edge of it crosses through the center point of the first circle.
You are now looking at a form that is referred to as the vesica piscis. This shape is also referred to as the “womb of creation” and “the bladder of a fish.”
This form is meant to symbolize the coming together of opposing forces and the overcoming of polarity. When two separate entities interact with one another, they produce a unified space from which a separate third entity might emerge. Do you even need me to explain why people identify this form with femininity?
We now have all of the information we need to build two triangles with equal sides within the “womb,” which is formed by the overlapping of the circles.
Create a connection between the two circles’ centers by drawing a line between them. Now, link each center point straight to the place where the trajectories of the circles intersect with one another.
You now have two triangles with equal sides on each side of an axis that runs horizontally (x) and implies that it also runs vertically (y).
From this information, we are able to deduce that there are six spots of equal distance around one of the circles. At this moment, a protractor is a helpful tool for maintaining exact measurements; nevertheless, a straightedge is adequate, and in the end, all you need is a compass.
Now that you have these additional points, position the point of the compass on each one of them and create five more circles. What you are looking at right now is something similar to this:
The term “seed of life” refers to this cluster of interconnected circles. The Seed is the first image that appears in my mind’s eye whenever someone talks about sacred geometry. It is highly common to see variations of this form used in new-age tattoos, company logos, and other types of visionary artwork.
Humans will never get bored with the shape’s perfect harmonics because they are so basic to the structure of the universe, despite the fact that they are used in so many different contexts. Who among us could possibly dispute the fact that this pattern offers unending pleasure?
Because it is so ingrained in our lives, we may not even be aware of the profound meanings that are contained within it. Where else can we see the notion of one being surrounded by six?
The seven days of the week spring to mind, each of which is derived from the six days that God spent creating the world, followed by a solitary day when he rested from his work. Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are the six celestial bodies that can be seen with the naked eye, and they are all revolving around the sun in the center of the system.
In addition, a number of different religions recognize a total of seven chakras, the center of which is said to be surrounded by three higher and three lower chakras. In a similar fashion, there are seven hues that may be seen in a rainbow, with green being in the middle and either red or violet being at either extreme of the spectrum.
There are many more of these instances that can be found if you want to do more research on your own, but evolution is something that is still happening now, and so are we.
From the Embryo to the Flower
When the seed develops into a plant, it reaches its full potential in terms of aesthetic appeal when it takes the shape of a flower. This is shown using sacred geometry by creating another ring of six circles around the seed, bringing the total number of circles that surround the seed to twelve.
(Remember that if you want the whole form to be contained, you can always add a circle to the perimeter of the shape. It does not have any effect on the overall energetics of the form, much like the infinitesimally small dot that is located in the very center.
Is this a form you’ve seen before? Does it have any applicability in either the natural world or the cultural world of humans?
The twelve signs of the zodiac, which surround our viewpoint here on Earth, and the twelve hour-markers that appear on the face of a clock are two common examples. It is stated that the famed Jesus of Nazareth had a group of twelve followers, similar to how King Arthur was supposed to have led a group of twelve knights around the round table. A year is divided into twelve months, but there is often a thirteenth full moon concealed inside those solar months.
In his book How the World Is Made, John Michell states that the number twelve “is the root number in the code of proportions that regulates the solar system…
At some point in the distant and unknowable past, the zodiac was segmented into twelve parts so that the sun would complete its journey through one zodiacal house or sign every 2160 years, which is “the same as the circumference of the moon in kilometers.”
These alignments, which are far beyond any chance of coincidence, indicate the divine wisdom that is inherent in the process of creation. It is impossible for so many plain-luck coincidences to have led to such a beautiful order and a rationale that is shrouded in mystery.
The fact that the Flower of Life may be discovered carved or somehow engraved into the remains of ancient civilizations all over the globe only adds to the power of this picture to motivate us to continue our research into the fixed forms that give birth to the reality that we are familiar with.
The cube of Metatron
Flowering comes first in any organism that is healthy, and then comes the formation of fruit. As soon as the flower has released all of its unstoppable beauty and scent, it begins to wilt, and all of that energy is then redirected to produce the next generation.
Plants have very high levels of intelligence yet are essentially unable to move. As a consequence of this, they have devised methods to disperse their seeds.
The most important of these strategies is to conceal seeds inside an appetizing morsel in the hopes that an animal will come across it, eat the fruit, and then excrete the seed onto an area of rich land that is some distance away.
This is how the species gets spread, and it does so by moving into new land while already being coated in the highest quality compost.
The tangible result of a time of incubation; the cumulative and far-reaching influence of a collection of causes The fruit of one’s work, karma, or loins, refers to the tangible output of a period of incubation.
The fruit is the culmination of all of the work and development that came before it. That which has been growing more expansively will now rid itself of forms that aren’t necessary in order to become highly concentrated and produce new forms. It is necessary to trim the tree in order to get good fruit from it.
In order to create the Fruit of Life, the magnificent intricacy of the flower must be simplified. This tiniest of deaths is for the benefit of that which is about to be born.
Now that it has been simplified, the Fruit transforms into the imaginative framework from which the boundless potential of Metatron’s Cube is brought to life.
Home Geometers, if you haven’t done so previously, please create a new Fruit of Life that is distinct from the rest of your scribbles. If necessary, switch to a fresh sheet of paper.
Now, link the center points of the thirteen circles that make up the fruit, and you’ll uncover a network of interconnecting lines. These lines are the two-dimensional depiction of the three-dimensional polyhedra that form the whole structural foundation for human experience. When you do this, you’ll find that the fruit has a fruitful structure. Metatron’s Cube is the name given to this stack of shapes that spans many dimensions.
In esoteric tradition, Metatron is regarded as an archangel, which is one of the spiritual beings that presides over our specific sphere of creation. It is believed that Metatron, one of the archangels, is the architect, the ultimate genius of design and proportion. Metatron is in charge of the particular logistics that make it possible for awareness to adopt physical form.
Dear reader, at the level of our combined experience, the five Platonic solids represent the most basic shapes that we are able to comprehend. The tetrahedron, the octahedron, the cube, the icosahedron, and the dodecahedron are the fundamental shapes that make up our world.
These polyhedra are the only ones known to exist that have a consistent number of sides, lengths of those sides, and interior angle configurations. They are the only shapes that are feasible in three dimensions that are entirely symmetrical.
They determine the links between atomic structures and planetary orbits; they are the instruments of Metatron; they are the vehicle by which the Many originate from the One. The five Platonic Solids correspond to the five elements and our five senses.
Different Types of Spirals
Congratulations if you have been following along with us for this long, since you have now sketched an outline of everything that is or might be. Before we can consider this discussion to be finished, there is one more aspect that has to be taken into account, and that is the spin quality.
To represent the progression from seed to blossom, we just placed one additional ring of circles around the central point of the design at each succeeding step. The name “Archimedean” refers to this linear type of the spiral, which was named after the great Archimedes of Syracuse.
Archimedean spirals advance in a linear pattern, similar to how a paper towel is wrapped around cardboard or how a rope is coiled layer by layer. In contrast to this is a phi, often known as a “golden spiral,” which grows in size in a proportionate manner according to the Fibonacci sequence.
Whirlpools, tornadoes, and spiral galaxies are all examples of natural occurrences that exhibit the Phi spiral pattern. In reality, this pattern is significantly more prevalent in the natural world.
On page 120 of Michael Schneider’s book, A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe, there is a great activity that allows the reader to feel the difference between these two different sorts of spirals.
Cutting two strips of paper and deciding on a unit of measurement, which might be inches or fingerbreadths, are the two most important steps in following these directions. Measure and label units with values that increase in sequence, such as 1, 2, 3, and 4, starting at one end of the first strip.
For instance, if the first portion is one inch, the second section should be two inches, and so on and so forth. After that, fold this strip at a right angle at each of the marks, and you should be able to sense an Archimedean spiral unfolding right before your eyes.
Carry out the identical steps with the second strip of paper, with the exception that the length of each segment should now be decided according to the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 13.
Again, at each point, create a right angle, and then compare the resulting angles. When you’re done, you’ll have achieved a direct and comprehensive comprehension of the two different kinds of spirals that may be found in nature.
Signs of the Hands That Created
Using the most basic geometric forms that are at our disposal, this essay traces the organic development of potential energy into reality. These are the fundamental elements that make up sacred geometry.
These are the physical manifestations of abstract concepts that would be incomprehensible otherwise. The generation of a voyage through the dimensions by means of simple forms, lines, and curls brings the traveler ever closer to zero or infinity, the One and the Many.
To get closer to the Creator, one must be able to see the patterns that govern how creation both expands and shrinks. You have been initiated into a mysterious tradition by engaging in the process yourself, actually retracing the steps of the Creator. The only boundaries on this tradition are those that you place on it via your own imagination.
This is knowledge that is genuinely global, and Drunvalo Melchizedek is quoted as saying that it is independent of any particular race or religion. It is a pattern that has always been deeply ingrained in the natural world. If you go to other worlds with intelligent life, I’m confident you’ll find the same picture there.
Then go with it!
