What is Sacred Geometry?
One of the definitions is “the geometry used in the planning and construction of religious structures such as churches, temples, mosques,…” but in fact it is a term used to describe Pythagorean and neo-Platonic gometry and how they explain relationships between organic and logarithmic curves. For most of us, we simple are heavily impressed by the beauty in designs which use sacred geometry, mainly found in temples, churches, synagogues among many other types of structure, including geodesic domes.
There is something incredibly wonderful and fascinating about sacred geometry. It changes people’s perspectives, it affects and defines architecture, expanding people’s mind in so many ways, and best of all, its positive aspects are often infectious.
Geodesics has strong links to sacred geometry. We could attempt to explain it in long paragraphs, but as sacred geometry is mainly visual, so we’ll let the videos below give you an overview.
But let’s get real here: anything that has such a powerful hold and impact on human emotions, spirituality, education and beliefs is a target for charlatans, profiteers and manipulators.
A geodesic dome manufacturer once told me, “sprituality sells”. In itself this is not a problem, except the person telling me this was a strong believer in spiritual enlightenment. It reminded me of all those TV evangelists who got caught lying and defrauding, manipulating people’s inner emotions to take advantage of them. So be careful on how you approach sacred geometry; it will not be a cure to anything but it will benefit and inspire you.
