Sacred Geometry

ShareThis

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.

such as visualization. a complex system of religious symbols and structures involving space. monuments and churches. iconography and using "divine" proportions. For example. sand painting and medicine wheels. Alternatively. Also. honeybees construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey. the chambered nautilus grows at a constant rate and so its shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate that growth without changing shape. village greens and holy wells and the creation of religious art. But some scientists see such phenomena as the logical outcome of natural principles. time and form. meeting places such as sacred groves. mosques. temenoi and tabernacles. sacred geometry based arts may be ephemeral. Sunflower . insight may be gained into the mysteries . forms and relationships and their connections. These and other correspondences are seen by believers in sacred geometry to be further proof of the cosmic significance of geometric forms. By connecting with these. According to this view the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred. By studying the nature of these patterns. Sacred geometry may be understood as a worldview of pattern recognition.It is considered foundational to building sacred structures such as temples. sacred spaces such as altars. Natural Forms Many forms observed in nature can be related to geometry (for sound reasons of resource optimization). a believer contemplates the Great Mysteries. and the Great Design. megaliths.the laws and lore of the Universe.

while a ratio of 2:3 produces a perfect fifth and 3:4 produces a perfect fourth. a belief in the geometric underpinnings of the cosmos persisted among scientists. such as the Guqin that also feature these tonal scales. Pythagoreans believed that these harmonic ratios gave music powers of healing which could "harmonize" an out-of-balance body. such as the Guqin that also feature these tonal scales. at first in two dimensions (having spotted that the ratio of the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn approximate to the in-circle and out-circle of an equilateral triangle). he tried . This belief has been revived in modern times. However the Chinese already had instruments that were thousands of years older. while a ratio of 2:3 produces a perfect fifth and 3:4 produces a perfect fourth. Pythagoras is often crediting for discovering that an oscillating string stopped halfway along its length produces an octave relative to the string's fundamental. In the timeline of Johannes Kepler (1571-1630). This belief has been revived in modern times. Cosmology Closeup of inner section of the Kepler's Platonic solid model of planetary spacing in the Solar system from Mysterium Cosmographicum (1596). Pythagoreans believed that these harmonic ratios gave music powers of healing which could "harmonize" an out-of-balance body.Music Pythagoras is often crediting for discovering that an oscillating string stopped halfway along its length produces an octave relative to the string's fundamental. Kepler explored the ratios of the planetary orbits. When this did not give him a neat enough outcome. However the Chinese already had instruments that were thousands of years older.

the 5 platonic solids. Even in his own lifetime (with less accurate data than we now possess) Kepler could see that the fit of the Platonic solids was imperfect. In fact. other geometric configurations are possible. Some believers of sacred geometry also see patterns in crop circles and in ancient architecture. the tesseract (4-dimensional cube).using the Platonic solids. and the merkaba (2 oppositely oriented and interpenetrating tetrahedrons). but the figures do not occur in a particularly neat order. the vesica pisces. Contemporary Usage A contemporary usage of the term sacred geometry describes New Age and occult assertions of a mathematical order to the intrinsic nature of the universe. the sphere. planetary orbits can be related using twodimensional geometric figures. Scientists see the same geometric and mathematical patterns as arising directly from natural principles. However. Golden Spiral . Some of the most prevalent traditional geometric forms ascribed to sacred geometry include the sine wave. and the golden spiral/ratio. the torus (donut).

The ancient Pythagoreans. thanks to researchers from the U. Shapes proportioned according to the golden ratio have long been considered aesthetically pleasing in Western cultures. that possesses many interesting properties.Blocks .618 033 988 749 894 848. 2009 . Following the changes in field direction. But only recently was it discovered that this special ratio is also reflected in nanoscale. They applied a magnetic field at right angles to an aligned spin of the magnetic chains to introduce more quantum uncertainty. golden mean. 2010 The golden ratio. which is equal to approximately 1. divine proportion or sectio divina.. suggesting a natural balance between symmetry and asymmetry. is an irrational number.Grids The golden ratio. published in the journal Science on Jan. believed that reality is numerical and that the golden ratio expressed an underlying truth about existence. Researcher explains mystery of golden ratio PhysOrg . examined chains of linked magnetic cobalt niobate (CoNb2O6) particles only one particle wide to investigate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. who defined numbers as expressions of ratios (and not as units as is common today). and the arts.

"It" is the golden ratio. a geometric proportion that has been theorized to be the most aesthetically pleasing to the eye and has been the root of countless mysteries over the centuries. philosophical. and spiritual beliefs that have sprung up around this geometry in various cultures during the course of the human biogenetic experiment. and metaphysicians to encompass the religious. a Duke University engineer has found it to be a compelling springboard to unify vision. It is a science experiment in linear time to experience.The Egyptians supposedly used it to guide the construction the Pyramids. The architecture of ancient Athens is thought to have been based on it. journal. and record emotions. geometricians. film. . Now. thought and movement under a single law of nature's design. Sacred Geometry by Ellie Crystal Our reality is a geometric consciousness hologram. Fictional Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon tried to unravel its mysteries in the novel The Da Vinci Code. anthropologists. The term "sacred geometry" is often used by archaeologists.

It's really not that complicated. the Wheel of Time or Karma through which we experience and evolve. our consciousness spiral down through the patterns of the golden ratio the about to reverse the spiral (spin) and return to source consciousness and light. is explained and understood. To understand reality is to focus on the patterns that have repeated throughout time. as if on a higher octave with each programmed experience for the souls. Consciousness & Reality . We are soul sparks of light having a physical experience. as based on a sacred geometric design.Creation Sacred Geometry is abbreviated SG referencing Stargate.
