Can We Understand the Universe by Understanding Geometry?

in geometry •  2 months ago 

It’s a little weird, I know, but I played around with a compass yesterday. I’ve been really interested in “sacred geometry” and why really smart people like Plato, da Vinci, Descartes, Pascal, Newton, Einstein, Bucky Fuller, and more (seriously, see the list of geometers linked below) have been so interested in stuff like this.

I’ve been reading an interesting book called a beginners guide to constructing the universe.

Each chapter discusses a single number and the meanings behind it. I’ve been wanting to go through the exercises there of constructing various shapes including the platonic solids and was feeling a little sick so I took it easy on Sunday, listened to some Burning Man tunes, and made some stuff. The girls joined me a bit also, and we did “arts and crafts” together. 🙂

It was peaceful, meditative, and felt somehow important.

Is anyone else weird like this, or is it just me?

Yep. They don’t call it sacred geometry for nuthin’... 👽💫🐇

it´s all geometry as it is frequency

Great stuff!

I've been binge-watching numberphilles videos last night plus some with acquired savant syndrome plus some wildlife videos. That's what you call weird. ;)

I need to read this book! It looks fascinating.

Sacred Geometry, my first time of hearing it. But I understand is mystical. I feel the pyramid is also a geometric shape

Pie and fibonacci 🤷🏼‍♂️😂😅

Very Renaissance looking constructions. It's amazing how much we use these theories to spatially organise things.

Only one problem with the book...

the universe is base 12.
... so, 1..10 falls a bit short.

We do not really play with the universal building blocks.
They aren't as pretty as the geometric solids like you put together.

Buckminster Fueller did a lot on this topic.
