I invite you to look at my art on a couple of websites. Nothing is for sale, so relax, this is not a pitch.

Been looking into the symbols on our American dollar...social consequences & all..

Have any of you heard of Drunvalo Melchizadek?

He makes a lot of sense and relates it all through sacred geometry which is, of course, perfect in its ideal.

Sacred geometry has become, for me, a very powerful tool for realigning my rational self with my intuitive side. Where the "right brain" intuits an infinite and mysterious interconnectedness but can not prove it, sacred geometry assists the left brain in comprehending how infinity "works."
I won't go into just how it does this now, though. This is better saved for individual interest and request.

Funny thing, when I first looked at the sketch it seemed to me to be an attempt to trisect an angle. I recall back in school being told you could not do that using a compass and a straight edge so I started the attempt and created many very nice looking patterns that looked very much like that drawing. One of the thoughts I had while working on my math problems was that with what I knew of relativity it seemed to me that we could state that infinitly small is exactly the same as infinitly large. It always seemed so obvious and presents an interesting question of where the observer is relative to the two infinities? Fear of the infinite is fear of both large and small unknowns, both of which are essentially the same. We fear the Diety, in part, because we fear that which we don't understand about ourselves. Much of the work in sacred geometry is the attempt to place humans into some kind of sacred pattern. Funny thing, though, for me, is that since we can only see with our eyes in 3 or 4 dimensions and draw in 2, we may be missing our "place" because we can't use our eyes to see the pattern.
