The Flower of Life contains an octahedron that is three whole diameters, or six radii, high. It shows the holographic nature of the octahedron. There is a central octahedron, followed by a second-level octahedron formed by six surrounding octahedra, and there is a third-level octahedron formed by an octahedron at each of the points of the second-level octahedron.

Those who have never heard of nor investigated sacred geometry do not need to be overly concerned with the discussion above. However, great minds of the past including Leonardo da Vinci were very interested in the special proportions in the Golden Section, Sacred Geometry and/or the Flower of Life. Often, we pick and choose to take the knowledge from such great men that suits us, but we leave behind knowledge that no longer fits with our modern perception. Sometimes we lose the ability to understand the principles that led those men to their greatness, and we adopt only the outer forms of the results of their work. Vitruvius, Pythagoras, Euclid, Da Vinci, Galileo, Newton and other innovators of the past exemplify the concept that Thought Creates Reality. Our current civilization is based on the works produced as a result of the thoughts of such great men. Many great discoveries of the past have been made by men who were seeking knowledge of the Great Mystery, the One Spirit that moves through all things.

In recent times, science has taken on the role of being opposed to spiritual pursuits. It seems that spiritual things are not scientific and scientific things are not spiritual. Sacred Geometry is no longer pursued by many scientists. For too many scientists these days, science is their ‘religion’. They don’t believe anything that they can’t put a number on. But there are many questions that our current level of science has not yet been able to answer. Science is an iterative process of trial and error. Time and time again, scientists have come to conclusions and adopted positions that later turned out to be wrong. Furthermore, science is often not truly objective, but is influenced by the political establishment of the day, and the entrenched dogma of the time. The scandal of the Piltdown man is an example of how scientists were all too eager to accept something the fit with their expectations. Of course Galileo’s experience being persecuted by the church establishment because of his belief of Copernicus’ contention that the Earth is a sphere that revolves around the sun is one of the best known examples of truth being thwarted by entrenched dogma.

To me, science is a tool. It is a means to an end, not an end in itself. I use science as a tool to help me understand the world around me, but I recognize that our current level of science does not provide all of the answers to the Great Mystery. Henri Poincare is reputed to have said: “It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition that we discover”.




The holographic shape of the octahedra could be seen in Figure 87, where there was a central octahedron, and there was an octahedron centered at each of the six tips of the central octahedron that formed an octahedron of octahedra. Figure 87 showed a second-level octahedron that was two whole diameters, or four radii, in height. That figure shows an octahedron that is made up of three overlapped octahedra on the vertical axis (the z-axis), and three overlapped octahedra on the x- and y-axes, when imagined in three dimensions.

This holographic form of replicating octahedra is carried to the next higher level in the form of the Flower of Life. In the Flower of Life, there is an octahedron at each of the points of the second-level octahedron in Figure 87. In the Flower of Life, an octahedron can be seen that is made of five overlapped octahedra on the x-, y-, and z-axis, imagined in three dimensions. At the third level of octahedra, there are also six octahedra that fill in the angles between the x-, y-, and z-axes, formed by overlaps of the second- and third-level octahedra.
