Sacred Shapes in Nature

Sacred Geometry is an ancient science with God as the architect. It can be thought of as the divine blueprint aka the language of creation of all things. Geometry, mathematical ratios, harmonics, and proportions are found in everything from the smallest grains of sand to the largest galaxies in the universe.

Go for a walk and look around you, Sacred Geometry can be seen everywhere.

Sunflowers, zinnias, chrysanthemums, daisies, are all flowers that have the same distinct spiral growth pattern. Look at more plants, barrel cactus, dandelions, the branches on a tree, pine cones and the list goes on.

Looking closer at the center of the flowers, you will notice that the shape in itself is not flat like drawing a spiral on a piece of paper. (Which I have to admit as a born doodler, I always doodle shapes on paper, that is how Ray was born!)

The shape is three dimensional forming a spiral within a spiral in different directions. This can easily be seen in the center of a echinacea or cone flower and a pine cone.

This spiral sequence is know as the Golden Ratio and it’s equation looks like this: a/b = (a+b)/a = 1.6180339887498948420

The Fibonacci sequence is shown in the Golden Ratio. This sequence, 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…. is derived by adding the first two numbers to get the next and repeating to infinity. The equation looks like this: Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2

One of the best known examples of the Golden Ration is the nautilus shell and it’s chambers

So 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, and so on. Got it? Here is a fun site to research this further: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature. So in our flower here, there are two patterns, one going clockwise and the other going counter-clockwise. Together they form a torus, defined by Wikipedia :

In geometry, a torus is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis coplanar with the circle.
Volume: 2 × π² × R × r²
Surface area: 4 × π² × R × r

So we have some math equations that correspond to the shapes found in nature. Is it just a coincidence? “Looking back on almost half a century of research,

Human Torus

including thousands of books, films, interviews with experts from diverse fields, if I were to pick one common denominator to all the facets of my quest, it would be the TORUS, the fundamental energy pattern that invites our alignment at every level of our existence for us to survive and thrive.” – Foster Gamble

Scientist and philosopher, Arthur Young, explained that a torus is the only energy pattern or dynamic that can sustain itself and is made out of the same substance as its surroundings – like a tornado, a smoke ring in the air, or a whirlpool in water.

When we research into the properties of a torus we find that in magnets, the magnetic field of the opposite poles form a torus.

The Earth and it’s magnetic field and the Earth’s radiation belt as found by Nasa’s twin VanAllen probes displays the torus of the Earth.

We can take this same sacred shape and apply it to the micro-cosmic cells of our bodies and expand it the macro-cosmic galaxies in our universe. The amazing thing is the geometry is the same.
