Triality, the foundation of the E8, is one of the most beautiful structures in mathematics and has definite similarity to the geometry within the flower of life.
“What physics tells us is that everything comes down to geometry and the interactions of elementary particles, and things can happen only if these interactions are perfectly balanced”. - Garrett Lisi
Then will come the ‘four visions of tögal’ which are the natural arising of visions of discs and rays of light, deities and buddha fields. These visions are naturally ready to arise from within the central channel that joins the heart to the eyes. Such an arising from this channel will appear in a gradual process. In the same way that the waxing moon will increase from the first to the fifteenth of the month, these visions will gradually increase—from the simple perception of dots of light to the full array of the vast expanse of the sambhogakaya buddha fields. The manifestation of space and awareness will thus reach its culminating point
Leonardo da Vinci studied the Flower of Life's form and its mathematical properties. He drew the Flower of Life itself, as well as various components such as the Seed of Life. He drew geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, and a torus, and also used the golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design.
Akasha (or Akash, Ākāśa, आकाश) is the Sanskrit word meaning "aether" in both its elemental and metaphysical senses.
In Hinduism, Akasha means the basis and essence of all things in the material world; the first material element created from the astral world (Air, Fire, Water, Earth are the other four in sequence). It is one of the Panchamahabhuta, or "five elements"; its main characteristic is Shabda (sound). In Sanskrit the word means "space", the very first element in creation. In Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati, and many other Indian languages, the meaning of Akasha has been accepted as sky.
The Nyaya and Vaisheshika schools of Hindu philosophy state that Akasha or aether is the fifth physical substance, which is the substratum of the quality of sound. It is the One, Eternal, and All Pervading physical substance, which is imperceptible.
According to the Samkhya school of Hindu philosophy, Akasha is one of the five Mahābhūtas (grand physical elements) having the specific property of sound
Here we are dealing with matter taking on complex geometric shapes due to sound vibrations. Starting to make sense yet? If not, be patient; it will in the end. To understand “creation” we must apply this idea of cymatics to the lowest level of matter that we can possibly think of: strings! In string theory, it is theorized that everything is in it’s most basic state, small vibrating strings of energy.
So if these are strings that vibrate, what would they do in response to sound? Would they, too, start to form complex geometric shapes? Yes, they would, and this brings me to the next concept: Lie groups. Lie groups are essentially mathematical and geometrical representations of matter’s formation at levels lower than quarks. They are the ‘complex geometrical shapes’ formed by vibrating strings.
Levels of magnification:
1. Macroscopic level – Matter
2. Molecular level – Atoms
3. Atomic level (protons, neutrons, electrons)
4. Subatomic level (electron)
5. Subatomic level (quarks)
6. Lie group geometrical representation level (strings)”
As shown in Figures 6 and 7, E8, when overlayed with the Flower of Life, makes particularly beautiful and spectacular alignments. In my opinion, they are too close to be coincidental. The patterns are fractile; if you shrink or enlarge the Flower of Life, the alignments occur over and over indefinitely.
"Jung found further that the mandala does not only mirror an inner state of order, but that its harmony or disharmony encompasses also the surroundings of the individual. Thus a mandala needs a symbol in which the outer and inner world merge. There is for Jung a ultimate reality beyond matter and psyche which he called the unus mundus, its empirical manifestation is the principle of synchronicity because in synchronistic events the inner world behaves as if it were outside and the outer world as if it were inside. As the mandala symbolism expresses the holistic order of matter and psyche it should have been investigated by physicists as well as psychologists because the mandala reappears in their hypothetical models of the atomic world. The atomic model of Niels Bohr is already a cosmic mandala and the models which the physicists construct nowadays to visualize the quarks are also mandalas." --M-L von Franz
A yantra is a two- or three-dimensional geometric composition used in sadhanas, or meditative rituals. It is thought to be the abode of the deity. Each yantra is unique and calls the deity into the presence of the practitioner through the elaborate symbolic geometric designs. According to one scholar, "Yantras function as revelatory symbols of cosmic truths and as instructional charts of the spiritual aspect of human experience"
Many situate yantras as central focus points for Hindu tantric practice.Yantras are not representations, but are lived, experiential, nondual realities. As Khanna describes:
Despite its cosmic meanings a yantra is a reality lived. Because of the relationship that exists in the Tantras between the outer world (the macrocosm) and man’s inner world (the microcosm), every symbol in a yantra is ambivalently resonant in inner–outer synthesis, and is associated with the subtle body and aspects of human consciousness.
The mandala can be shown to represent in visual form the core essence of the Vajrayana teachings. The mind is "a microcosm representing various divine powers at work in the universe." The mandala represents the nature of experience, and the intricacies of both the enlightened and confused mind.
While on the one hand, the mandala is regarded as a place separated and protected from the ever-changing and impure outer world of samsara, and is thus seen as a "Buddhafield" or a place of Nirvana and peace, the view of Vajrayana Buddhism sees the greatest protection from samsara being the power to see samsaric confusion as the "shadow" of purity (which then points towards it).
The E8 vector visualisation in Science is like the 1,000 Petal Sahasrara Lotus in Spirituality.
All known particles and forces can be regarded as nodes within the complex mathematical object called the E8, a symmetric higher-dimensional polyhedron consisting of 248 vertices in eight-dimensional space, first discovered in 1887. The computation was not completed until 2007, and is 60 times larger than the human genome! So, do you recognise any symbols?
Since E8 is an 8-dimensional object, one can rotate it in various way and new symmetries manifest. Visualising and classifying representations of Lie Groups is critical to understanding phenomena in Mathematics and Science: Algebra, Geometry, Number Theory, Physics and Chemistry. This project is extremely significant and valuable for future mathematicians and scientists! Enjoy the intersection of science, art and spirituality.
If you want to see how five different sacred geometries are not only isomorphic to one another but also embody E8 and E8xE8.
Instead, study mathematically RIGOROUS, irrefutible, undeniable proof by a theoretical physicist that superstrings are part of the cosmic blueprint.
it is merely a precuror of the geometry underlying the five Platonic solids and the Kabbalaistic Tree of Life
The lowest tree of life embodies the root structure of the superstring gauge E8
Male (Science) must love the female (Religion). Two become one in unity. The Woman is always right. The man needs to leave his pride. Humility acknowledges the other in love. Pride separates.
There is a mirror in all the universe that shows you how to see both sides
Not seeing this cost me I'm starting to see....
Looking at the harmony of spheres, sri yantra and starcut diagram, harmonic 4ths(science) and 5ths(religion), a slightly uneven balance weighted towards the feminine. Five left to four right. So the correct resting state of our energy and nervous system is biased towards parasympathetic and right brain/abstract.
The main things I remember are that - ALL IS WELL, nothing is really wrong, nor is anything being really wrong even truly possible (not that evil does not exist but that all has reason) and that we are here for a planned purpose - we are doing something good here.
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
God is raising children in a wilderness. We must overcome the beast (Animal Nature) of our selfishness.

Yes, but there are paths to follow. We are given a destiny. The Earth turns and we will not stop it. The sun rides in space until it arrives. We have no control over these destinies. We do, however, have many choices and promptings by God. God allows us to choose the path.

The Flower of Life has NOTHING to do with E8. Instead, it is merely a precuror of the geometry underlying the five Platonic solids and the Kabbalaistic Tree of Life. It is not really even "sacred" geometry per se.
If you want to see how five different sacred geometries are not only isomorphic to one another but also embody E8 and E8xE8. don't waste your time with these woo-woos who never provide hard proof of their grandiose claims and refer to discredited work like that of Lisi, trying to dazzle with pretty pictures and tenuous, wild speculations. Instead, study mathematically RIGOROUS, irrefutible, undeniable proof by a theoretical physicist that superstrings are part of the cosmic blueprint. You will find it here
Read the previous sections as preparation for studying how five different sacred geometries are equivalent representations of the root structure of E8 and E8xE8, which is analysed in the section entitled "Superstrings as sacred geometry". You will discover a form of mathematics that applies equally to the doctrines of religions and to scientific facts in micro-biology and particle physics, as well as underpinning the Western basis of music. This is not the "Theory of everything" as understood by physicists because the word 'everything' only refers here to matter and its forces. The linked research reaches far beyond maetrialistic science to its ultimate source, to literally EVERYTHING, transcending all ad hoc model-making and theorizing by revealing the mathematical nature of the Divine Mind.
