Every Geometrical shape corresponds to a sound mathematically. In fact, many believe that the information embedded in a sound, is the information that actually creates the shape of everything in nature.
Bruce Rawles explains it the best on his website - www.geometrycode.com "In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created."
The images are often called Sacred because they are part of the actual structure of the entire universe.
The flower of life has every single component of reality imbedded in this one image.
From a sphere
every image is actually a reflection of music.
Our instructor Randy Masters has created chimes based on all of the musical intervals found within the relationships of each of the triangles in the Sri Yantra above.
In fact, technically, every single geometric shape within the entire universe (including each organ within our bodies) has a mathematical correlation to musical intervals. Therefore, everything can be broken down into a musical interval that we can feel. When you learn all of the musical intervals you have the key to feeling everything in the universe.
The kings chamber in the Great Pyramid has very specific chords setup by the resonance created by the distances between each of the walls (Width, Depth, and Height)
The Golden Spiral above is based on the Golden Mean ratio. This ratio is found throughout all life. Also, when a person is transmitting love, the heart actually creates a sound that is made up of golden mean harmonics.
SACRED GEOMETRY LINKS
(most from Bruce Rawles)
Besides the following links there are so many websites out there that have a huge amount of information. Just google "Sacred Geometry."
Bruce Rawls (www.geometrycode.com) has one of the clearest and easiest to read explanations of the basics of sacred geometry on his home page.
Gregory Hoag (www.metaforms.net) has some of the coolest sacred geometry sculptures.
Juliet and Jiva Carter (www.templatewales.org) also have a huge array of sacred geometry forms with workshops that tie it all together.
LightSource (www.sacred-geometry.com) now has both PC and Macintosh versions of their screen savers: the Gaiametry CD, LightSource CD and DVD's with Hemi-Sync audio (which promotes synchronization of the left and right hemispheres of the brain).
Heartbeat2000: A wonderful site on the beauty and power of the compassionate heart – it's relation to the golden ratio and much more.
Nassim Haramein (www.theresonanceproject.org) is doing some fascinating work with sacred geometry and modern physics.
Jain from Australia has some interesting info on Vedic Math, Magic Squares, etc.
Michael S. Schneider - author of a marvelous book on geometry, A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe - The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science - A Voyage from 1 to 10 - I often recommend this book as a complement to my book for newcomers to the subject
Drunvalo Melchizedek has acquainted many about the mysteries of sacred geometry with his Flower of Life programs
