The Second Key to Ascension: Sacred Geometry
Throughout the entire natural world, a simple set of ratios and patterns govern the structure of all things. From the growth patterns of tree branches, to the design of an insect’s compound eyes, and on to the distances between the planets, everything in existence harkens to a hidden set of underlying rules. These rules are so subtle, that we see them every day, yet seldom acknowledge what we are seeing.
Ancient seekers took the time to carefully observe the world around them. It was in their examination of the minute details that they found repeating geometric patterns. Many of these seekers already had an understanding of mathematics behind geometry. Thus they began to ask if their world could be broken down into simple mathematical formulas and the sacred pursuit of numbers was born.
Finding the Formulas
Through countless years of endless computations, the most brilliant of minds discovered specific ratios and mathematical formulas upon which the natural world was formed. These ancient seekers believed that these subtle elements of their reality were indicators of a divine hand at work. As they struggled to unlock these geometric secrets, they felt that they were approaching a level of understanding that could only be akin to sacredness.
Thus, these ratios and geometric patterns became akin to the most sacred of prayers. They were not prayers which were spoken aloud; rather they manifested as the structures which reflected the source of all living things. If these seekers truly did understand divine secrets of the gods, then they must be able to demonstrate it through their own constructions and bring the divinity of nature into the realm of mankind.
Building Holy Temples
Layouts of holy sites and temples were built using these sacred mathematical codes. It was believed that if they used only the most sacred and purest geometry, then these sites would focus and amplify the divine source of all things. Despite the divine nature of the mathematics used, or maybe because of it, the geometry proved to be superior for the construction of larger and larger monuments. The scale and grandeur of these temples did not disappoint and the ruling powers of the known world erected as many of these temples that they could.
The Sacred Occulted
All of this took place before middle ages when the physical world was declared profane and any attempt to discern its nature was derided as sacrilege. Although the sacred teachings of ancient geometry were forbidden, its supremacy for building large and stable structures was heralded. To preserve these secrets of the divine nature of the constructions were whispered down through ages from master to apprentice, never to be fully lost.
Many churches and holy Christian sites were built using the same exacting standards that were discovered and used in the building of the great pyramids of Egypt. The same ratios found in ancient obelisks can be found in Gothic architecture. Patterns once considered to reflect the numinous were now reflected in the intricate details of the designs on church walls. The knowing observer could read these patterns and understood the ancient secrets within them. The general public, as well as the enforcers of the law, only saw magnificent aesthetics.
Today, we can once again explore these ancient secrets and speak of them openly. We can examine the details of holy sites around the world and across oceans of time. Hidden in these details, the ancient secrets of the structure of the universe are just waiting to be unlocked. Perhaps by studying these intricacies, and finding their natural world correlates, we can begin to understand the minds of the gods as we continue our path to ascension.
Can our world be broken down into mathematical formulas?
Though the numbers were different, as well as the means for mathematical formulations, ancient seekers attempted to capture the complexities of the natural world in the most simplest forms. Through countless years of endless computations, the most brilliant of minds discovered specific ratios upon which the natural world was formed. It was these ratios that we find in the layout and construction of the great pyramids of Giza and the obelisks. Known only to a select few, these secrets permeated through the ages, hidden in architecture – such as Vatican city, the Golden ratio and temples built to reflect these sacred ratios – to bring in and enhance the divine nature of the world.
What are Fractals?
If you look around you right now, depending on where you are, you’re likely to see to two distinct types of shapes: 1) blocky, linear and smooth if you’re in a manmade environment; or 2) branching, uneven and irregular shapes if you’re in a natural one. Why is there such a difference between the appearance of manmade and natural spaces? Why does one tend to look smooth, while the other looks rough? It comes down to one word: fractals.
A Brief History of Fractals
At the beginning of the 20th Century, mathematicians Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia discovered fractal patterns while looking at complex mathematical systems. Back then, these objects defied linear analysis; they were considered aberrations or scary mathematical monsters, with infinite depth and complexity. They weren’t very popular and were forgotten until the late Belgium mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot discovered them again while working at IBM labs in Armonk, New York in 1980.
Fractals Contain Imaginary Numbers
To distinguish fractals from ordinary objects, you should know that fractal sets are created by algorithms that, in addition to ordinary integer numbers, also contain so-called “imaginary numbers”. This allows fractals to behave in much more complex ways, and describe more complex systems than ordinary numbers.
The Behavior of Fractals
Mandelbrot was the person who coined the word fractal. He used it to describe the behavior of financial markets and telephone line noise. The word fractal is derived from the word Greek “fractus,” meaning “fractured.” Mandelbrot noticed that telephone line noise is similar, whether you look at it over the course of an hour, a minute, or a second: you still see the same wave-form shape. In this sense, you can describe telephone line noise with a numerical dimension that applies at any time scale. The dimension defines the visual “roughness” of the signal; in other words, the dimension translates to how choppy it looks.
This is a very different type of geometrical logic than the one we were taught in school, where objects have a definite length and size. This is because, in school, we’re dealing with abstract objects that we imagine are perfectly linear and smooth. Nothing in the real world really looks like that!
If you take a look at almost anything natural under a microscope, you’ll see it’s full of fissures, pits and holes.
That’s because natural things are seldom perfectly flat beyond a certain scale. The closer you look, the more defects you’ll see.
