## 9. Sacred Geometry: The Building of the Succession Polygons & the 5 Platonic Solids

Last week we looked at how the Vesica Pisces gave birth to the key numerical values that brings 3D-form into being--i.e. square roots of 2, 3, and 5. The last of these (¶5) is also known as

*Phi*(φ) or the*Golden Mean*. Before moving away from the 2D shapes, I thought you might appreciate a diagram on the Succession of Polygons.
In the diagram to the left, you can see the Vesica Pisces formed by the top two circles. From the Vesica Pisces an equilateral triangle is generated, then a square. By adding a circle at the bottom, the all important pentagram (5-sides figure) can be generated. If we continue adding circles and connecting the strategic angles a Succession of Simple Polygons manifests, as in the diagram below. A polygon is a plane shape with straight sides. A polygon that is a simple polygon has sides that do not intersect. |

In the drawing below see how the interlocking circles themselves begin to form what traditionally is called the Flower of Life.

The Kabbalah Tree of Life with its 10 spheres laid over the Flower of Life begins the process of explaining the energy flows. The manifesting flow -- moving from the non-material realms into the concrete physical realms moves from top to bottom. The process of Ascension --raising consciousness-- involved energy that moves from the bottom to the top.

There are many, including hard-core scientists who are beginning to see that the power of Sacred Geometry was understood far earlier than Plato (427-347 BC) and Euclid (325-265 BC). Ancient stones wrapped with leather thongs are assigned to the Neolithic era. The actual stones are on display at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England. Anyone can clearly see that from left to right we have an octahedron, an icosahedrons, a dodecahedron, a tetrahedron, and a cube.

We’ll discuss this interesting archaeological find further in next week’s article.
