Geometry begins with the ‘point,’ which is
or, in three dimensions,
. It exists only as the intersection of two or more lines, being purely abstract, while yet the only empirical beginning–and end. Thus all our geometry, whethersacred or profane, springs from ‘nothing,’ as evidenced by the fact that the point doesn’t even qualify as a dimension.The first diminsion begins with a line–the point that has ‘smeared’ itself through space, like the ‘red shift’ photographs of distant galaxies. This lineis the shortest path between two infinities, or ‘points.’ From
, the dualityof 
lines is born. Our rational lives are associtated with this
dimen-sion, the line which travels at its own pace between the void before birth adthe void after death.But no ‘closed’ or stable figure appears until there are three lines, or ratheruntil the first line has ‘smeared itself again–like a windshield wiper–into aplane, the
dimension. The simplest possible planar expression is the
equilateral triangle
, symbol of the fiery trinity of active creation. This‘trinity’ sheds its vibration even into chemistry and mechanics.If three needles are placed in three corks, and the corksfloated in a bowl of water with a magnet beneath them,they arrange themselves as the corners of a constant equilateral triangle. A stool needs a minimun of three legs to stand. White light remains undifferentiated into colors until it has passed through atriangular prism. And three spheres of equal size provide the basis for a fourth to rest upon them in ahigher ‘mode’ of form.Brahmanic scripture speaks of two ‘fires’–the
energy which descends from heaven, and the
etheric energy which ascends from matter. In the ancient traditions we find these conceptsmirrored in the triangle which is based in matter, its point aspiring
, and the triangle which isrooted in the invisible heavens and despires
. Their union, the union of polarities, is spiritwedded to matter–the macrocosmic man, in his complete and feminine sensitivity to the Divine. It is the
Star of David 
, each point–as with every true symbol–touching the edge of an invisible circle of totality.Geometry and myth can be closely intertwined, as we can see from the fusion of two circles to form one
vesica piscis
. This figure produces both triangles, squares, and the golden mean rectangle–the meanproportion which occurs in sacred architecture as constantly as it does in the growth of spiralling shellsor galaxies.In Gnostic Christianity the symbol for this generative proportion (the tuningfork for the soul’s growth) was the
, the fish’s eye being the intersection of the diagonal of the larger golden mean rectangle with that of the smaller, pro-portional golden mean rectangle within it. These rectangles generate each other,in proportion, from macro- to micro-cosm, together with their squares.From this mean ratio of the vesica piscis–which underlies the architecture of Gothic cathedrals–springsthe
symbolism which pervades the religion of the Piscean Age–the now waning eon of Christianity:Christ as the
 fisher of men
, the fish-shaped mitres worn by bishops and the Pope, the
or baptis-mal font, and so on. The two circles producing the vesica piscis are also precisely contained within alarger
mother vesica piscis
, from two circles contained within a yet greater one, and so on.It is the
, or
, which is the basic shape in sacred geometry, for within them is contained the duality of the humanpredicament. The
, the six-sided figure, whose edges are equal to the radius of the circle encompassing it, aboundsin nature, in plankton, snowflakes and flower pedals. It is the shape formed by circles when they wish to nestle together withthe most economy of space–seen in crystals and honey-combs.
