Since the ancient world and among all the cultures of the world today, one thing that has fascinated mankind is the study and application of sacred geometry.
Sacred geometry is about the belief that the mysteries of life and existence are represented by geometric symbols that follow mathematical patterns.
Some of such sacred symbols and mathematical patterns are the triangle, the circle, the pentagram, the golden ratio, the Fibonacci sequence, etc.
While some of these symbols are common mathematical or geometric symbols which we apply today in mathematics and physics without attaching any mystical meaning or soul to them, it was not so in the beginning.
As we move backwards in time to the ancient world, we would find that the ancients saw geometry as sacred, as divine, and as having deeper meanings to life and existence.
However, this attachment of spiritual meaning to geometry or this consciousness is mostly lost to the mathematicians and scientists of today. The spiritual awareness of the sacredness of geometry is now completely lost from science.
This loss is why I want you to know in this great article that the spiritual culture that accompanied the ancient study of geometry has returned in this post-modern age, and the influence of it is growing steadily.
This spiritual culture or awareness that surrounds the study of geometry is the central emphasis in this article.
Now, sacred geometry is reflected in many ancients sites in Egypt, South America, Europe, and all over the world. The Great Pyramid, the temples in South America, the Stonehenge, and many others. They all reflect the spiritual awareness of geometry that the ancients had.
So, the spiritual awareness of the sacredness of geometry has been an intrinsic part of human civilization from the very beginning. And today, in this post-modern age, it is finding a rebirth.
The Pythagoreans were one of the ancient sects or occult groups to espouse the sacredness of geometry. They sought to present the spiritual meaning of the geometries and even numbers and some of their expositions can easily be found in their writings.
Today, many hear of the word “spiritual” or “occult” and their minds immediately go to the rituals and blood cleansings and whatever they think is involved, but few attempt to look at the sacred application of geometry that underpins the occult.
However, the ancients wrapped the meaning of these occult or sacred symbols in metaphors and religious expositions.
The Renaissance era saw the wide application and resurgence of sacred geometry as natural philosophers, artists, musicians, etc. studied and sought to represent their crafts using sacred geometry.
The most prominent of such philosophers was Johannes Kepler, Tycho Brahe, and others in art like Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, etc. And even Mozart in music.
So, sacred geometry had no scientific underpinning or any attempt at that until the Renaissance era by Johannes Kepler a prominent German astronomer who sought to see how sacred geometry applied to the heliocentric model of the solar system.
In 1597, he was able to apply the five Platonic solids (cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, tetrahedron and icosahedron) to the intervals between the first six planets known at that time which are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
However, he later abandoned the idea when he found out that the planets move in elliptical orbits and not in circles. But what is of note in Kepler’s scientific attitude was his awareness of a connection between geometry and the spiritual nature of the universe. And I think he was the last of such scientists or mystics.
After him, Galileo came along and firmly established the mathematical study of the universe devoid of a mystical connection or spiritual awareness.
This was the birth of physical science, and while it had its advantages, I still think that the loss of the spiritual awareness that accompanied the study of the universe should not have happened.
Modern science as it is founded on pure mathematics did away with some of the unrelevant myths that have become heaped on the meaning of numbers, which even I feel it was a good thing and a progress in the right direction.
However, the spiritual awareness of the universe and of these geometrical symbols should never have been lost as we proceeded to study the universe. It should have found another expression in science.
So, what is now important is that the spiritual awareness centered around geometry has found its true expression in the language of science which was impossible before.What is now important is that the spiritual awareness centered around geometry has found its true expression in the language of science which was impossible before.Click To Tweet
And this spiritual awareness of geometry as representing the spiritual as found in the occult has become restored to humanity once again and in the language of science.
What happened was that as science got physical and more physical as time progressed, mankind lost the spiritual awareness of sacred geometry and also of mathematical truths.
The rebirth of sacred geometry and spiritual awareness has come about because of the effect the birth of physical science had on mankind. We lost this ancient spiritual culture which should have been the soul of our scientific study of the universe.
Mathematics simply became a tool to model the physical world without any attachment to the spiritual. And it became understood that mathematics represents or models the physical universe.
This is what led to the loss of the spiritual awareness that was the basis of the study of the universe since ancient times.
However, this spiritual awareness has become rebirthed by the new realization that mathematics models a spiritual universe and not a physical universe.
This is the only transition that can restore the spiritual awareness and the eternal occult traditions that have been a part of mankind since the beginning.
And it is exactly what has happened in post-modern physics. In post-modern physics, we see the first application of mathematics and geometry to describe the spiritual nature of the universe.In post-modern physics, we see the first application of mathematics and geometry to describe the spiritual nature of the universe.Click To Tweet
It is the first realization of the unification of science and the spiritual, restoring once again the ancient belief in the capacity of geometry to represent mystical truths.
The spiritual awareness of the universe as it is created or forged by science and not by religion is what is being discussed in this article.
The ancients had the right spiritual awareness but did not have the scientific language to accompany or represent it, while we have the appropriate scientific language, but do not have spiritual awareness to base it upon.
However, today, there is a unity of this spiritual awareness and science to give us a balanced view of the universe.
We are not going back (exactly) to the old ways of numerology and occult rituals and whatnot, rather we are rebirthing the spiritual awareness of the nature of the universe, and we are now expressing this awareness using the language of science.
This is what this article informs us. The sacred geometries and how they assist us to understand the spiritual nature of the universe has become the scope of science. And the most important sacred geometry in this regard is the triangle.
The triangle is the holiest and central of all sacred geometries and it lies at the heart of the unified understanding of the universe. The true import of spiritual awareness as it only can apply in our scientific culture is what has become rebirthed.
We are not just only the scientific generation, we are also the spiritual generation. We now view the universe in the unified balance of science and spirituality.
The sacred symbols and their ultimate representation in the triangle have found their way into the heart of the unified understanding we now have of the universe.
Sacred geometry lies at the heart of the unified understanding that we now have of the universe, and it is what is rebirthing our spiritual awareness of the world.
So, this article is about the most profound rebirth of a kind of spirituality that is expressed by the language of science. This is the long-foretold and expected union of spirituality and science that is to elevate the consciousness of mankind to a whole new spiritual level.
The long-standing institution of religion has become corrupted and obsolete and is not fitting for the emerging new world. The world is now to become more scientific and profoundly spiritual in a manner that mirrors the ancient world without the distortions of religion and myths.
Geometry is sacred as the ancients have thought and this is not because of the religious or mythical meanings infused or attached to them, but because they represent the different phenomena of nature, and in some cases bring these phenomena under one picture.
And in fact, when separated from the myths, this has been the understanding since the ancient world.
The golden ratio is a mathematical discovery that the ancients applied in the construction of their temples and other religious sites, and it was also applied in the Pyramid. This is as the golden ratio and the Fibonacci sequence have been seen to apply to nature, like in the DNA, the arrangement of leaves and other parts, etc.
However, now, we are going much deeper into this understanding and spiritual culture by seeing how sacred geometry applies to the long-sought unity of the universe in a manner that explains our fascination for them.
Science is finally showing us how sacred geometry can represent the spiritual nature of the universe exactly as the ancient had conceived but could not present to us in a scientific manner, but had to rely on metaphors and myths that could stray away from the original intent.
Science is not just about the study of the universe; it is also about a spiritual culture that revolves around it, and that also serves its base.
At this point, it is important to make it clear where the new sacredness of geometry is coming from. The ancients based the sacredness of geometry on a religious view of the world, and for this reason, it found wide application in temples and religious sites.
However, what I speak of in this article is the new sacredness of geometry that is found on the spiritual understanding of the universe which we now have. In other words, sacred geometry is what is now based on the spiritual awareness of science as it elucidates the world around us.
Nevertheless, the spiritual awareness of geometry remains the same for all times though it might find different expressions in religion and science. The latter is why I now speak of the rebirth of spiritual awareness.
Sacred geometry has always been inseparable from spiritual awareness, however, due to the rise of science both were forgotten as even geometry and other mathematical tools became the means to describe a physical universe.
This is no longer the case in post-modern physics. In post-modern physics, geometry and other mathematical tools have become the means to describe a spiritual universe, giving rise once again to the study of sacred geometry and the accompanying spiritual awareness.
Geometry has now found its sacredness not in numerology or in mathematical mysticism, but in its ability to represent the spiritual truths of the universe which are also scientific in nature.
It can, therefore, be said that the rebirth of the spiritual awareness of the sacredness of geometry is the simple result of the unity of science and spirituality.
So, the sacredness of geometry and its accompanying spiritual awareness do not belong to a mythic past in man’s history, but also to the burgeoning post-modern age of this world.
The rebirth of spiritual awareness is emerging from post-modern science, and this is what is giving a new picture to our view of sacred geometry or the sacredness of geometry cutting away the myths that have been heaped on geometry over the past ages.
So, it is important to understand the scientific basis of this article, and not misinterpret it to be an exposition of a religious kind.
Science is now the new spiritual view of the universe and any application of geometry in this regard is sacred. And this is naturally because the word “sacred” is always associated with something spiritual or of spiritual importance.
Before now, we had found the application of geometry to represent physical facts, but this is no longer the case as it now represents spiritual truths. This is the grandest realization of science, which is to rise to its true spiritual status and make the most illuminated conclusions about the nature of the universe.
This is important because the discovery of the true nature of the universe is what more than anything else affirms the sacredness of geometry. This is as the beautiful and mystical revelation of the unified nature of universe is most profoundly captured by the triangle.
This goes to show that geometry is truly the language of creation. It is not just a tool of mathematical convenience. So, nothing else proves our understanding of the deeper meanings of geometry for life and existence like an accompanying spiritual awareness.
And this new world is forever that has rediscovered the sacredness of geometry and its coexisting spiritual awareness.
Until next time,
I will be here.
