Sacred Geometry

YHVH (@spaceghost) 8 years, 8 months ago

I’ve recently been obsessing over the concepts, but I can’t quite grasp it. Metatrons cube, the flower of life, tree of life, etc…

How does it apply to reality?

I guess no one else has an opinion on the subject?!

BUMP- round 2 haha

@spaceghost, not true!

im not so sure how it applies to reality either, but things like the golden ratio and what not are pretty abundant. i also feel resonance between the initial stages of embryonic development and the first few levels of sacred geometry. a cell divides, growing slowly. playing the with shapes also help me have a tangible understanding of infinity. if i had a big enough sheet of paper, or conversely, a small enough pencil i could keep going on and on..

@deean, I should start drawing the shapes then? Yes I guess I do understand it a little bit, Isn’t the flower of life a million circles or something? It’s often hard to focus on applying it to how it appears naturally. Embryonic development is a great example, one that slipped my mind. I know the golden ratio and the fibonacci sequence are both seen everywhere.

@spaceghost, not quite a million, but thirteen. and yes you should definitely start playing with the forms! as far as focusing on how it appears naturally, i try and imagine the invisible lines of energy holding everything together. surely by now you have youtubed sacred geometry. charles gilchrist has plenty to say about ‘sacred g’. for me its one of those things that seem to transcend varying beliefs and systems. an undeniable constant, something to hold onto, however ephemeral it may seem.

go watch spirit science’s sacred geometry bit on youtube.

@deean, That’s what intrigues me. It’s seems so necessary. Do you think the shapes themselves have have capabilities? Can one apply a certain shape in a way so that it has an effect, but such knowledge has been lost?

@420chief, I will, thank you.

@etorg, yes the shapes have healing qualities. Because all of life is made up of these shapes, when things are out of balance recognizing which shape is need to resonate with what is out of balance can bring healing. This is consciousness based healing and the know ledge has most certainly been lost but is resurfacing.

Geometry is what makes up the WORLD. From the microcosm (embryonic) to the macrosm (black holes and universes) its all about shapes!! cool stuff.

@spaceghost, if you would like to directly feel the effects of sacred geometry on your being, there are many flow arts that allow one to truly feel lifes patterns and shapes such as spinning poi, staff, yo yo even.
Poi specifically seems to inspire more than any other as I have been practicing for around three years. I can say I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for something that might be seen as a mere passtime in someone else’s eyes. Poi has become my yoga, my meditation, and my sacred geometrical dance session all in one hobby.

you should ask perhaps why we are so inclined to find sacred geometry, and what you expect to learn from finding it.

@jamieeatsworld, What is Poi?

@spaceghost, diggin this topic! :) Especially flower of life and all sort of meaningful symbolism :)
I have a great book for you! it this kind of book that will make you come back to it many times :)

A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science

@dida, Thank you, glad to see others enjoy the same topics! I am indeed still a beginner so I will be checking out that book.

@spaceghost, watch the spirit science series if you haven’t before its got several episodes devoted to sacred geometry. Also drawing the flower of life yourself and making Metatrons cube from is cool experience and the physical act of drawing it yourself gives you interesting perspective on the universe.

@spaceghost, i see it as the application of certain structures which arise from underlying characteristics of reality.

@spaceghost, the fibonacci sequence is really cool.

its how many things in nature are arranged. like the fruitlets on a pineapple.

@apretorius1, just watched all 4 hours of spirit science. EXCELLENT recommendation. holy fuck balls i loved it. thank you.

Spirit science on YouTube is ridiculous. I like the concepts they present regarding sacred geometry, but they’re also the ones who talk about fucking “Ancient Lymeria” and the “Lymerians” and a bunch of other laughable pseudoscientific bullshit. The concepts are fun but a lot of the shit is bogus and has no practical application in everyday life. Now, sacred geometry on the other hand, that’s a different story. That is evident in life all over if you know where to look.

deean (15) (@deean) 8 years, 8 months ago ago

@chodebalm, i like fun. and not hating. do you only want things in your life with practical application? surely you enjoy at least one thing that doesn’t serve a practical application. and if you dont, maybe try it. how are you so certain it’s bogus anyway?

Country Man (12) (@420chief) 8 years, 8 months ago ago

@chodebalm, good thing you don’t know if lymerians existed so why dont you shut up so everyone can have their own perspective on the information.

Alex Pretorius (33) (@apretorius1) 8 years, 8 months ago ago

@chodebalm, I will agree that some of it is insane, but even if 20% of whats presented in that series is at least somewhat true I got something out of it.

Alex Pretorius (33) (@apretorius1) 8 years, 8 months ago ago

@deean, And this one just shows you stuff on google earth, all of which makes way too much sense, but makes very little conclusions about what the information means. Its almost 4 hours though I would recommend breaking it up for your sanity.

@420chief, In other words you want me to shut up because it contradicts your beliefs about Lymerians? Lol, yeah everyone can have their own opinion on the matter unless it goes against yours.

There numerous concepts floating around on how sacred geometry has influenced cultures, architecture and all sort alikes. But with most things, geometry gives explenation and tries to give words to concepts.

At this moment in time we mostly use geometrix to explain science, math the fysical aspect and applied in technology, industry and all sorts alike.

But back in the days -it was believed to be used as a way people would explain the order in relation or nature, themselves and found patterns in there way of interaction, emotions that would be explained in geometrix. An example could be the highest emotion of love presented in mathematical constructs, these days we use a heart shape. But now a days we focus less on spiritual mathematics and gave it names like psychology.

The shape of the spiral was considered one the most awesome shapes and found in all sorts of representation of geometry, for example the hexagon can be detuced in all sorts of sub shapes giving rise to such patterns.

I often consider sacred geometrix like thoughts, the mind, because when I think about ideas or things to do, I often try to bring them in relation with mathematics and shapes, how does the world revolve around me, which order, if I say something which direction will it take, does it come back to me in which order, and can I see a shape being formed.

I tried this the other night to give an example. We were sitting in a triangle shape in the living room, and 2 girls were babbeling about something, so as being part of the shape I tried to think of something they could relate to and would spark there conversation. So I mentioned something, and suddenly the flow of conversation changed on this subject. This is off course normal, but the difference I’m trying to get accross, is: It was a triangle where I unleashed a spiral of thought, which was taken over and changed in many shapes, (ideas, perceptions) So they talked about the subject bringing in other people, giving rise to more shapes of how people where connected..

Just babbeling here ;-)

@chodebalm, no just if your making it sound dumb to believe in those things
