To JERRY H-E:
>I understand geometry to be a symbolical language
that is a key to the understanding of ancient mysteries.
Yes, I agree with that. Some say that Sacred Geometry
is also involved with understanding the conceiled Forms
behind the manifest forms. That reminds me of Gordon Plummer.
His models of nature could prove useful.
> ..numerical relationship between shapes and solids
We *know* that the Logoi express transcendent forms in concrete
forms, i.e. there is a transition from transcendent relations to
certain _proportional_ relations, expressed as ratio's of whole
number's. I did a little bit of research into this field and
derived some formulae which make this process a little bit more
understandable. But these are fragments of a greater whole. It
requires a lot of intuition and research to develop this further.
Note that Plato and Pythagoras mention this proportionality in the
works of the Demiurgos. I was already rereading Plato's Timaeus.
That fits nicely into this kind of study.
> Greek and Roman architecture used occult geometric principles
Yes, and so did the Egyptians! I studied the famous book of Ralston
Skinner: 'The Source of Measures', which is quite enlightening
regarding these occult principles, although very incomplete of
course. But it gives an interesting glance beyond the veil..
Blavatsky often mentions Skinner in the SD. BTW the Jews used their
Kabalah to encode some of their arcane knowledge into the Talmud,
especially in Genesis. Skinner decodes a lot of this knowledge,
showing it to conform to the Egyptian proportions used in building
the Great Pyramid (Gizeh).
I know the name of Vitruvius, but didn't study his work. Can you
give me the details regarding Publisher, etc.?
I'm not an advanced student of Sacred Geometry, but I have
discovered some interesting stuff, which I want to share with
others. Maybe we can enlighten each other a bit on this field! So,
Jerry, I'm interested in the ideas of Vitruvius and others. Also, I
want to study the Tetraktys on a more fundamental level.
I also understand you did some discoveries of your own. That would
be great to compare with my own findings.
P.S. My proposal to Murray was included a mail or two ago to this
list. I asked him to tell something about the background of his
research with Hodson on crystals, etc. As you know, Murray agrees
to do so, bit by bit.
