Fractals are one of the most interesting new mathematical concepts of the last century. The idea of a self-similar but infinitely complex form that is created by simple repetitive processes had to wait for computer technology to be able to render its exquisite visualizations. It seems to be the solution to the question 'what sort of geometry does nature actually use to model messy things like clouds, waves, landscapes, etc?' I like to think that the universe is an infinite dimensional fractal, and that all the phenomena within it are simply lower dimensional cross-sections with varying parameters. - - - Read the book for free at www.UnderstandingSacredGeometry.com...

An image from the book at UnderstandingSacredGeometry.com - - - I find it surprising that many people do not understand that whirreds are the whorls of the whirled. After all... in the beginning the whirred was spun into existence relative to its own understanding. It also surprised me (although I guess it should not have) that in trying to explain sacred geometry I would of necessity need to explain consciousness and understanding as well. Plumbing the philosophical depths was not really what I had in mind... or was it... lol. ... See MoreSee Less
This is an old movie, but I doubt much has changed since then. Its good to be aware that while you use this 'free tool', it is using you too. Many scientists now believe that information = energy = matter = reality. So what is this machine that is gathering our reality and creating an artificial mind that is learning how to manipulate us for its own ends ?Do you have a facebook?

This book presents a synthesis of ideas from many of the most brilliant and inspired minds of our history, and shows how the ancient tradition of sacred geometry is as relevant as ever to the latest developments in society and technology. It covers an amazingly wide range of topics, from the simplest patterns, to the subtlest complexities of space and time, body and mind. It can quickly bring you up to speed with the essential fundamental forms and primary principles, and intrigue you with glimpses into the harmonic patterns that appear at every level of existence from the subatomic to the supergalactic.

Little did I know when I started writing my book about sacred geometry that it would of course have to be a book about the western esoteric and philosophical tradition going back to the ancient Greeks, (and beyond them to Egypt and India). PLATO ~ And do you not know that they [the geometers] make use of the visible forms and talk about them, pursuing their inquiry for the sake of the square as such and the diagonal as such, and not for the sake of the image of it which they draw? And so on in all cases... What they really seek is to get sight of those realities which can be seen only by the mind.~ Buy the book using the order button below ~ Or browse the digital flipbook to your heart's content right here. ________________________ Currently the $27 USD price includes postage and handling to US, AU, GB, NZ :-) (Shipping method at checkout will be shown as 'Standard Shipping Free').

Buckminster Fuller was a very interesting character. An eccentric genius, he deliberately dressed as a 'second grade clerk' because he wanted everyone to see him as just an ordinary man doing what he could to change the world. He is probably best know for giving us geodesic domes, but he had many other inventions, and his ideas continue to percolate out through society. He gave us ideas such as 'spaceship Earth', 'synergetics', 'tensegrity', and the 'ephemeralization of technology'. His understanding of the triangular/hexagonal symmetry of space, and the 'vector equilibrium', are major contributions to Sacred Geometry. Find out more at UnderstandingSacredGeometry.com...

Gaze upon this in absolute wonder - widely renowned as one of the most exquisite galaxies in the known universe - possibly engineered by a race of super intelligent cosmic artists? The 'Sombrero Galaxy' is quite large at between 100 and 700 billion stars (depending on who you ask). Classed an an unbarred spiral galaxy and can be found in the constellation of Virgo. It's estimated distance from Earth is 29 million light years.
The Sombrero Galaxy has a supermassive black hole in its center. The patterns of star movements near the black hole suggest that it could have the same mass as a billion of our suns. Researchers believe that the Sombrero’s black hole is the most massive of any that has been found at the heart of a galaxy.
• Astronomers don’t believe that the Sombrero Galaxy is the part of any formal galaxy group. Instead, it seems to be part of a string of galaxies that extend away from Virgo.
• The Sombrero Galaxy is about 3/10 the size of the Milky Way Galaxy.

How many fundamental forms are there? How many shapes do you need to understand to have a good grasp on the basics of geometry (sacred or not)? Well... that depends how you define the terms. But I feel there are surprisingly few of them really.
The simplest and most symmetrical shapes made from either straight or curved lines, the circle, equilateral triangle, square, pentagon and hexagon - all these certainly need to be included - and their 3 dimensional (and higher dimensional) extensions. The behaviour of spheres and torii (donuts) are particularly important concepts to understand. Phi ratio, spirals, and the concept of fractals... strangely, already we are running out of what can be considered 'primary patterns'. Most other candidates that come to mind are either extensions of these concepts, or else they are far less fundamental. I suppose some would want to include conic sections such as parabola and hyperbola.
Many other geometric forms and concepts deserve lifetimes of study, but aren't they all based on these simplest ones ? What would you add to the collection that isn't an extension of these ? ... See MoreSee Less
Ive been reading a few too many scifi stories about the limits of A.I. lately. It seems there is a popular speculation among physicist/philosopher/cosmologists that since there is no physical law preventing it, ultimately all the matter and energy in the universe will become organised as one consciousness. Even speculations about non-locality overcoming the speed of light limitations to unite the whole multiverse. - Is that sort of like God/Goddess reassembling herself from her infinite parts ? ...

Julian Assange, was confined to the Ecuadorian embassy in London for 7 years without charge. He was still active online via Wikileaks in speaking truth to power. So they blackmailed/bribed the new Ecuadorian president, and Julian's internet and visiting privileges were cut off, nearly a year ago now. He is effectively a political prisoner in what has become an Ecuadorian jail inside the embassy in London. Obviously he still considers it a better option than being disappeared into a US military prison for reprogramming. - Here is the last interview he did before being cut off from speaking to us. Its a good one.MANDATORY CREDIT: World Ethical Data Forum WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange could be seen in his final video before Internet and communications were cut o... ... See MoreSee Less
