What’s unsettling about the ‘Flower of Life’ (FOL) is that it can be found in all over of the world. People all over the world renown the FOL
for its proportion, harmony and perfect form. Indeed, it has been termed a symbol of ‘sacred geometry,’ or thought to contain a type of
an Akashic Record,
to some; it depicts the fundamental forms of space and time and to others,
creation itself. Some even go to the lengths to suggest that the complete ancient flower of life is an inter-dimensional tool, a portal, a stargate, a
window into what some call the interspace plains.
This thread is a brief outline. Dependant on your views, it may seem like absolute BS but..remember, always have an open mind
It is composed of many evenly-space circles that overlap each other. They arrange to form a flower pattern with a sixfold symmetry. It’s been dated
back to 645 BC but I bet you, since so much of our history has been lost..it’s probably waaaaay before then.
Here is the complete version with 2 more layers added:
It doesn’t look to be that amazing does it?
But look carefully. This simple form is very deceptive. Below depicts the platonic solids
. These can all be derived from this one pattern. But
hey, this is just a bunch of shapes...what’s so special about them? The platonic solids are thought to be the “templates” from which all life
springs, they are found in the rudimentary construction of organic life..not just the building blocks of life...but creation itself!
The complete flower contains the 3D metatron cube which holds all Platonic solids.
Fancy Some Sightseeing?
So you all may be thinking...it’s just a shape....it means nothing, it’s all BS. Well, why all this significance in cultures and religions? As I
mentioned before..the original symbol, the unifying one; FOL, can be found throughout history in a variety of places:
The Osirion is one of the most famous examples of where the FOL can be found. At the rear of Seti I temple at Abydos:
The arrow indicates where it can be exactly found. Here’s a close up:
And a further close-up:
The following letters can be made out:
θ = Theta
Є = Epsilon
λ = Lamda
Closer inspection shows that the two Greeks words that can be deciphered read: "Theos Nilos", which means the "God of the Nile."
"Digamma is an archaic letter of the Greek alphabet, used primarily as a Greek numeral.
Its original name is unknown, but was probably (wau). It was later called διγαμμα (digamma — double gamma because of its shape). It is
attested in archaic and dialectal ancient Greek inscriptions, and is occasionally used as a symbol in later Greek mathematical texts.
It is also used as the Greek numeral 6. In ancient usage, the numeral had the same form as the letter digamma."
Digamma, like Upsilon, derives from the Phoenician letter Waw, and in its turn gave rise to the Roman letter F."
It is clear from the above that the inscription is ancient Greek. I believed first that this occued during Alexander's invasion in 332 BC, before the
beginning of the Roman period in 30BC, when the Greek Ptolemies ruled Egypt. Against this view according to Herbert Weir Smyth in his book Greek
Grammar the Digamma "disappeared when Athens adopted the Ionic alphabet in 403 bc. However it disappeared gradually and was still used in Boetia as
late as 200 bc." This implies that it could already have vanished by Alexander's time.
So if the letter truly is "Digamma" it is quite possible that it was inscribed before the Ptolemaic period. On the present evidence this seems to be
very unlikely but if so what other possibility might there be? We can be fairly sure that Pythagoras had a ten year stay in Egypt from around 535bc.
Could it have been inscribed by him?
And talking about letters, I came across something odd:
As you can see these are some runes; some ancient alphabets and these can all be seen in this one mere pattern.
And below are some more, that I’ll leave to your imagination:
Believe it or not, it can also be found in another grand civilisation...in India. It’s mainly been found on temples; both Hindu and Buddhist.
"At the entrance of the Baghawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba ashram there is a gate that covers and protects Ganesh's temple, and the whole gate's design
is made of the Flower of Life symbol! Unfortunately, photography is not allowed."[/]-- By Juan Carlos Toffano, FOL Graduate (Mexico).

On a floor of a house near the Library of Celsius
In the city of Ephesus, in Izmir...this is from a sealed off area. The FOL was found on the roof of one of the little houses.
In Istanbul, in the Topkape’s Palace...there’s a room kept where suits are worn by the sultans; Mystic Shirts
. They are worn underclothing
and have symbols which “protect” the sultan.
Even DaVinci worked on this:
It contains some Freemasonary’s sacred symbols. Doesn’t it look quite similar to this:
I’m sure all of you have seen crop circles like below. Again, they all seem to have similar patterns to the FOL, if not from it.
And believe it or not...even on here:
On a Knights Templar tombstone in St Magnus Cathedral....
These are all just a MINUTE amount of places these have been found in (to see some more: www.floweroflife.org...
) and there so so so
A Few Derivations:
Not only can the Platonic Solids be derived from this but so can these:
The Fruit of Life
The Fruit of Life is thought to be the “blueprint” of the universe. It’s thought to be the basis for the design of the atom, structure, life and
everything in existence.
The Seed of Life: Creation
This symbolises the seven days of creation, and all appear to derive from an octahedron.
The Egg of Life
This pattern is a geometrical formula which represents the electromagnetic spectrum of light (for further information how this can be done,
check out Drunvalo Melchizedek's book "The Ancient Secret of The Flower of Life Vol.2") and the first thing that God created was light - "Let
there be light".
The shape of the Egg of Life is said to be the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in its first hours of creation.
The fact that this one shape can hold so much is startling! Again, the Egg and Seed are possibilities. If you want to have an idea of what else it
symbolises...Wikipedia is a great start: en.wikipedia.org...
A Bit of Physics
It is a UNIFICATION into one thing. You know what else reminds me of unification?
The superstring theory; that all particles, everything we’re made off are actually strings. Just like how all platonic solids are actually a version
of the FOL, strings act in the same way but for all matter, antimatter.
This looks quite similar to the FOL. It’s a Calabi-Yau...a manifold in which strings pass through and it determines what way it vibrates, therefore
what characteristics it is...what particle it will become.
Imagine the orbits of Venus and Earth...over the time to complete 8 orbits by Earth, 13 orbits for Venus:
(orbit of Earth is cropped out)
Again, this can be seen from the FOL.
A Little Bit of Religion
The complete flower also contains the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life.
Christianity also has a strong link with it. Below depicts the Star of David:
You’ve got the Tripod of Life; symbolising the mind, body and spirit.
Also, you've got the Vesica Piscis and the Spherical Octahedron.
This was just something fascinating I came across on the Internet and decided to share it with you guys. It’s rather unsettling how this one symbol
is spread out all over the world...why did so many cultures and religions adopt this in their work? Why did so many intelligent men? This little
drawing has had a large influence...and I don’t think we’ve been given all to the story here.
So what do you think? Is it a “portal”? Is it a secret symbol that holds the most important and sacred pattern in the universe?
Or is it just meaningless?
