\Lab"y*rinth\, n. [L. labyrinthus, Gr. laby`rinthos: cf. F. labyrinthe.] 1. An edifice or place full of intricate passageways which render it difficult to find the way from the interior to the entrance; as, the Egyptian and Cretan labyrinths.(Unlike mazes, labyrinths have a single path, no dead ends, and one way in and out. But the process of proceeding in and out of a labyrinth is surprisingly profound.)
The medieval labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France lies at the heart of a renaissance in the spiritual use of labyrinths, some 800 years after it was originally constructed.
The Labyrinth and the Tree of Life symbolic meanings along with PHI and The Golden Ratio transend almost all Religions and Cultures and have been used for everything from simple amusement to complex Magick, Rituals, Theology, Numberology and even Alchemical Science and Modern Science and Physics. The Traditions and Dances, Artwork and Architecture, Theories and Uses that can be found throughout thousands of years of Humanity are truely an almost endless journey and Mysterious Knowledge and Understanding for any and all who decide to follow the twisting path of information contained within the "Labyrinth" and "Life" itself.
