I'd suggest reading www.scribd.com...

Geometry is the structure of life. The 'enlightened' ones knew that back then just as the 'enlightened' (elite, illuminati, reptilians sucking blood of babies..) know it to do this day.

It's used in everyday life because shapes help us in some way. Help to bring within a more.. enlightening energy.

This will explain it all:

The FOL is the symbol of life and all that is. It was not created by man. It is a mere mathematical representation of all that is. No matter which way you look at it you can find some sort of equation. I think the real question is how did ancient civilizations figure out the complex mathematics involved in order to form the FOL. I would like to see it in a three dimensional view to see even more alignments. I have been attracted to The Flower of Life since I was a young boy and my grandfather show it to me in a book and said this is the secret to life and all that exists.

I understand your quest, and though not many answers, i guess this is the way forward.

I see that these circles, the FOL is depicted in a 2D manner.
Perhaps a 3D model would shed some extra light?

Am at work and almost every site is blocked, so finding it difficult to post it here.
Probably some one else could?

i also feel these could depict the existence of life.
The different dimensions we live in. The intersections of the circles are where we somehow merge into anoto dimension?

Just my thoughts.. First time i am actually paying attention to this. Thanks for that BlackPoison.

I do also remember using some geometry tools in school & just randomly drawing circles and somehow these shapes would appear.
Obviously did not know what they were, but they did look beautiful!

Excellent post.

To those who may not recall or may not have been introduced to the information I would like to add a very basic concept that can also be found throughout pretty much all of these same cultures and that would be that "ALL IS MAYA" or simply put "all material existence is an illusion" and I do not believe that they meant "some" or "part of" I believe they meant "ALL".

More to the point is that I believe in the possibilities of a Holographic Universe, Ancestor Simulation Theory and to the chagrin of many, The Matrix Theory.

I believe that what many are seeing/perceiving in things such as fractals, the flower of life, so called "sacred" geometry and via pretty much all modern scientific method, what they are finding is simply what I and perhaps many of the ancients would call THE FABRIC OF THE MATRIX.

Science will continually look deeper and deeper into both the macro and the micro and they may ultimately find a "Wall". A "wall" of sorts that will have a ward written upon it that means "Thou shalt not pass!".

IF not WHEN they find what should be a single PIXEL..... I also assume they will find this Wall on both the micro and macro levels.........they will then be forced to conclude that we are in some sort of matrix/construct/program and this is exactly as it should be, a very hard learned lesson.... the ignorance of those who have forgotten or ignored the fact that at one time, science was religion and religion was science and all of it was knowledge.

It is not hard to present the argument that those who held knowledge were doing so secretly, not for fear of the knowledge falling into the hands of the profane, that is the old story yet perhaps the power that the knowledge provided them.

If we could step out of our little mental boxes and truly begin to see that indeed all is maya/illusion how might we live these lives differently?

Without first honestly considering something as a possiblility how can we ever define/decipher/test said possibility to know either way?

The materialists see these patterns as "the fingerprints of the gods" and use them to prove the existence if not the very nature of divinity/diety yet if you believe as I believe then you may come to realize that what we consider reality could very well be a program and that what we have come to believe in as a materialistic god could simply be a very powerful computer that runs the program.

Of course, much like our current technology, there could be systems within systems such as a disk operating system running something like Windows and then windows running an excel program and on and on potentially ad infintum could run the many layers of the "matrix".

No surprise then to find cultures that essentially worship all or only some of the various "Parts" or "Systems" especially those that are so apparent and/or hard to deny such as worshipping the sun, a star, a heat source, an energy source or..... a 400 watt power supply system with all sorts of associated transistors, capacitors, arrestors etc etc that indeed, at least on some very basic level, provides the lifeblood of the machine...

I could go on to show how our binary star system works like a little electrical motor and that it also looks as if this motor has an automatic restart function and that the Lever or device that initiates the restart function appears to have been activated yet..... its all illusion and my Jesus named Bill Hicks told me not to worry yet he did not say that I could not stare in perpetual wonderment at the brilliance of the illusion, and thus, I will.

...Why can runes and symbols be found in this? ...What meaning does it have? ...Why is it spread around the world..and used in everday things?

Because, in the basic nature of sacred geometry it is the movement of creative energy existing outside of form into the creation of form (be it called God or however you want to define it.) It goes beyond the platonic solids into being holographic. Therefore it can be found in everything and everything can be found in it. The FOL and a deep study of sacred geometry really is one of those things that are a big key in understanding the nature of life and form. The ancients understood this, at least the initiated of the mystery schools, and that is why it is found in so many different cultures. Each culture had their own mystery schools but the essence of them was the same, that is the transmission of these deeper esoteric understandings.

ok that is fine and dandy, however what does this have to do with our history? Our life? or the way we act?

OK. This is something I did a while back to explain it to some devoutly Christian family members and so I used the Bible's story of creation to give it a framework. In creating this I also looked at the Quran, the Tao te Ching, and a variety of creation myths and stories from various other cultures. I was going to revise these images with the texts of other creation stories but never got around to it. However, every creation story follows the same format: From one comes 2, from 2 comes 3, from 3 comes 4, and from 4 the whole of physical creation. It is not, repeat not, the exclusive domain of the Christian story of creation. Take these images and do some of your own reading on other cultures creation myths and you will see what I mean. The last image--A Practical Application--shows how it is present in things we don't even necessarily think about in being present in and addresses the 3D vs 2D. The whole thing also addresses the question of what the FOL is and why it has been important in so many cultures

Thanks everyone for those links. I'll be definitely looking into it more and reading all those information.
What I'm going to look for now is this appearing in myths, legends of cultures

The only thing I used from that website was it's letters..the alphabet..that makes up a tiny bit of the thread

Those images are distributed widely over the Internet and so happened to be on that page.

If you've read my OP, there is a LINK showing where I got the majority of my photos from.

Epic post.

Da Vinci not only studied it, but he invented some very efficient simple machines based on its proportions.

Any students of geometry and geometrical constructions can appreciate its beauty. The Greeks, and Euclid in particular, pretty much figured out everything worth knowing about geometry, until non-Euclidian geometry was discovered. All our basic mathematical functions can be illustrated using geometrical shapes, with just a compass and straightedge. In the Flower of Life, as soon as you construct the first vesica pisces, you've already isolated proportions equivalent to the square root of three and other important mathematical proportions, before even moving on to filling it out in more detail.

I haven't read the whole thread yet so forgive me if someone already brought this up, but have you ever read the Flower of Life books by Drunvalo Melchizedek, OP?

Jung covered this in his work on mandalas. He thought it represented the unconscious self.

BP,

Awesome thread, I have a silver Flower of life symbol that I wear these days.

I had a amazing experience that I posted on ATS of seeing this symbol in a dream, but it manifested much more than a lucid dream that I typically had, in fact it moved me so much I posted a thread on ATS.

First I thought is was a Mandala, but later upon searching the net I found it was indeed the flower of life which I had experienced, first hand.

A Higher Message to Deliver

Great Job BP!

Hi BlackPoison,

S&F Excellent work! Your presentation kept me reading (besides "the Flower of Life" and geometry being a * topic).

Quickly though I'm volleying an idea or two back and forth from the left to the right and right to left hemispheres.

Brain Waves = Boat?

Speaking of wordplay, lets pretend that the Flower of Life is an apple blossom. And the apple is a planet. What if the FOL is (among other things) a matrix design, not just for one planet, but a solar system?

Speaking of portholes, maybe the "12 Devil's Triangles" are a part of this FOL system-wide matrix?

Check it out!

seed and tree and flower and fruit

flower or flOwer

apple seeds (as a verb)

apple or sphere or planet or plant it (as a seed) or plan net

apple or aple or leap or jump

forbidden fruit or for bid den or bid for den or den for bid

den or hole or worm hole

apple worm hole and jump gate

apple core and planet core (core = equator?)

apple tree or leep, tear or apple trees or leep, tears or leeps, tear

apple tree or et leap'r

So isn't that something? Never even thought about an apple like this before. If it was a snake it would have bit me. lol

I'm sure there's more but it's late so my brain is sleepified at the moment.

What do you think? There's got to be a coherent picture in this analogy. Your thread encouraged me to explore this.

Peace out,

Toni

P.S. I'm still trippin on the ancient alphabet and FOL connection. lol Nice.

Yay! Word games. My favorite, much more comfortable with them than math games. Short answer, Yes. Slightly longer answer: it is a self-perpetuating (also like a seed) infinite system that goes out and in. As above so below. Person, planet, solar system, galaxy, universe, cell, molecule, atom, quanta. They all follow the same rules, the same pattern, the same flower. The one and the many.

Here is my favorite example

Here is the more boring but paradoxically more interesting original

You could line up any simple shape I can think of, and many more complex shapes with the FOL. The idea is that with a completed FOL, the geometry of anything that exists in the entire universe is already embedded in it.

This thread is definitely packed with a lot of dense information to trip out to. I have a lot of PDFs saved on my computer about this kind of stuff, but I can hardly seem to make the time to decipher most of it.
