What’s this about Geometry being Sacred?

Most people’s concept of Sacred geometry (if they have one) is of some of the better known primary forms splattered over psychedelic t-shirts and light shows, or perhaps of diagrams of architecture, human, or animal forms divided into Golden Mean proportions. Although study of geometry may bring artistic and scientific insights there is no obvious reason why this should be considered ‘sacred’. After all ‘sacred’ is a word that has been used in our society primarily in relation to religions, and in more Earth connected societies ‘sacred’ indicates connection with the great mysteries of the elements, life and death, and the grandeur of the cosmos.

Sacred Geometry is sacred because it tries to understand the fundamental principles of existence. In examining and working with the building blocks of creation we are brought into more conscious awareness of the source of everything.
