The first time I came across Jonathan Quintin it was because of his incredibly complex designs using fivefold symmetry.
Jonathan’s multimedia presentations are an enchanting introduction to the essentials of Sacred Geometry.
and his exquisite DVDs of light and movement are a feast for the eyes. You can buy them on his website www.SacredGeometry.com.au

Geometry is a vast field of study and Sacred Geometry is a term used to indicate a particular field where the qualitative as well as quantitative elements are addressed. Other terms for this study include:
• ancient geometry: many ancient traditions used this form of geometry
• organic geometry or bio-harmonic geometry: the geometry of nature
• archetypal geometry: illustrates the self-organizing forces of creation
• classical geometry: all can be reduced to divisions of circle and sphere
• philosophical / theosophical geometry: the nature of creation
• universal geometry: because it pervades the universe
• inter-dimensional geometry: functions on all levels of creation
Sacred geometry is a universal language that describes the inner workings of nature and the intrinsic order of the universe. It is the natural sanction that unites all forms of life… from microbes, plants, animals and humans to the motions of the planets and stars.
Sacred geometry shows the quality of relatedness between unique and individual differences and demonstrates how diverse elements can be organized into a whole, while still preserving their individual uniqueness. Everything has an underlying geometric template which links it into the cosmos.
Geometric cosmology provides a tangible means of examining the intrinsic order of the Universe. It shows how the microcosm reflects the macrocosm. It is both exoteric and esoteric, providing an interface between the seen and unseen, the quantitative and qualitative, the finite and infinite. It symbolizes the relationship of form, movement, space and time.
Everything that appears solid in the world is actually in a state of vibration. Nature is abuzz with pulses, oscillations, wave motions, rhythms and cycles in a vast spectrum of universal energies—all of which can be defined as vibration and frequency. Frequency can be expressed through number and number through shape and form—which is geometry.
Everything in the world is energy in a continual state of change. The sum total of energy in the universe does not increase or diminish but is continually transformed from one state to another. There is no end, only change. The end of one cycle marks the beginning of another.
From the dance of atoms to spiraling galaxies, every type of growth and motion is governed by the same set of mathematical laws. These laws are contained in the primary shapes and patterns that develop from uniform divisions of the circle and sphere. They are graphical representations of the mathematical principles upon which nature operates. They describe the self-organizing forces that manifest in infinite diversity.
The patterns are reflected in nature as natural forms, but with an important distinction. While natural forms are geometrically organized, every form is unique and can only approximate the mathematical principle upon which it is based. Although governed by mathematical rule, natural form always gives way to physical constraints.
Natural forms are determined by the interaction of intrinsic and extrinsic forces. In the case of a plant, for example, the intrinsic forces are governed by the genetic coding that geometrically organizes the molecular arrangements to shape the vegetal characteristics of that particular plant.
The extrinsic forces are those influences that are external to the plant’s biological form. They are largely environmental such as soil content, temperature, humidity, wind, rain and sunshine. They influence the options and create limitations affecting the plant’s existence.
Nature, as a response to the action of force, creates an infinite diversity of forms from a basic inventory of archetypal mathematical principles. The archetypes are the basic pattern-forming processes that, operating within strict limits, create limitless varieties.
Natural forms are diagrams of the forces that created them. Every natural form is a blend of beauty and function, demonstrating how nature develops the most refined, regenerative technology based on a geometric system that combines economy of energy with optimal performance.
As well as the world being geometrically organized, it is also geometry that determines how we perceive it. We experience the world through our senses, which respond to energy fluctuations in our field of awareness. Each sense is tuned to a different range of frequencies. On the most fundamental level, our senses react according to the geometrical and proportional differences of the stimulus involved.
If we smell a rose, it is not actually the chemical substance of its perfume that we respond to but rather the geometric nature of the chemical’s molecular structure. If blindfolded, many of us would not be able to distinguish the aroma of a garden rose from a perfume that had been produced in a laboratory. This is because the molecules of the chemicals were bonded similarly to those of the rose—in other words they shared the same geometry.
Our sense of sight differs from our sense of touch because the nerves of the retina are tuned to a different range of frequencies than are the tactile nerves. The same applies to the nerves involved in the senses of taste, smell, or hearing—it is the geometric distinctions among the frequencies that we respond to.
Geometry is the constant amidst a continual process of change. Our physical bodies are in a constant state of change—every atom of every molecule is continually changed and replaced. The DNA molecule is generally considered to be the vehicle of continuity. However, the information to replicate is not encoded in the physical DNA molecule; or the carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen elements that compose DNA—because they too are continually changed and replaced.
The vehicle of continuity is a geometric spiral (helix) which provides an invisible blueprint upon which DNA is structured. The spiral is based upon archetypal geometric proportions that exist prior to the physical state. It is these invisible geometric proportions of the spiral that are responsible for the replicating power of the DNA.
Similarly, the process of photosynthesis in plants occurs because the geometry of the carbon, hydrogen, magnesium and nitrogen elements of the chlorophyll molecule is organized into a harmonic twelve-fold arrangement. These same elements in any other arrangement will not transform radiant energy into life substance.
