SACRED GEOMETRY: An Introduction
What is meant by “sacred geometry”? Well, in its simplest terms it is the geometry which underlays all creation. There are repeating geometric forms which can be seen in all existence from the atomic to the cosmic. They range from the simple and familiar such as circles, squares, triangles, spheres, cubes to the more complex such as hexagons, pentagons, spirals, toroids, fractals, helix to fourth dimensional forms such as the hypercube and the hypersphere. These forms make up all of our visual reality and their repetition and their combinations speak to the nature of reality and the underlying symmetry and order of the universe which may be at first indiscernible to the naked eye.
Once we have learned to recognize these forms and to understand a bit about the mathematical relationship between them a whole new world dawns for us. You’ll recognize these patterns everywhere. You will see them in the arrangement of atoms within a crystal. In the forms of the virus and cell. In flowers, seeds and leaves. In the structure of an insects eye. You will see them in the cream in your coffee and in the shape of geological structures on the broad face of the Earth. You will see them in clouds and weather patterns. You will see them in the structure of planets, their orbits in galaxies and in the fourth dimensional shape of the universe itself.
The shapes are a language. They speak of relationships and patterns and those patterns are meaningful no matter what the scale. The spiral in your coffee cup has the same relationship as the spiral of the galaxy. You see these patterns are not “things” as we are accustomed to think of things that exist in our three dimensional realm. A baseball is a “thing” it approximates a sphere but it is not a sphere. A sphere is an ideal that exists independently of the crude world of our perception. However, because a baseball approximates a sphere we can use what we know of the ideal of a sphere to predict how a baseball will act in three dimensional space and in the fourth dimension of time. This is the world of ideals and their relationship to the outward world of forms.

What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
I’ve never loved a post so much in the history of tumblr
Abandoned Amusement Park in New Orleans
they say New orleans is haunted… this has proved the theory 100%
I was sending photos like this to everyone when I started writing Nightmare in Silver. There is something uniquely disturbing about abandoned Amusement Parks.

you can be a fan of a show and point out its flaws
you can enjoy something and still criticize it
discussing issues which are necessary to be talked about is as much part of a fandom as anything else and has nothing to do with fighting
the idea of a fandom is that you are more…
