Geometry / Vibration / Form

This is the movement.
A way to think about the Stillpoint is to envision a still, invisible, non-existent point
at the center of all this movement.

There is a special relationship between frequency, vibration, geometry and form.
Dr. Hans Jenny did much of the pioneering work of the study of this relationship, known as Cymatics.
His work consisted of noting the effects of sound on a granulated substance which had been placed on a flat plate. In response to the audible frequencies,
the grains arranged themselves on the plate in complex geometric patterns,
all adhering strictly to the dynamics of the generating tone.
Specific tones, or combinations of tones, will always produce specific patterns or combinations of patterns.
Above are examples of standing sound wave patterns reflected on the surface of small samples of water,
with the comment below by Jeff Volk,
an authority on Cymatics and the photographer of the images above:
‘The science of Cymatics visually portrays vibration in action,
giving us a glimpse into the infinite realms of creation.
Cymatics makes perceptible to the senses certain processes and patterns
that depict many of the universal principles which underlie the way things manifest,
certainly in the realms of physical matter, but also in the very fabric of our lives.
Being universal, these principles apply at every level of the human experience,
from the physical, to the astral, mental, causal, right up to the truly mystical,
or purely spiritual.'
Jon Michell's Heavenly City redrawn from his 2009 book How the World is Made
‘The Heavenly City is a geometer’s name for the traditional diagram
that represents the order of the universe and the numerical code that underlies it.
There are many allusions to this diagram in ancient relics and writings . . .
which provide the key to the long-lost science and philosophy that has,
at various times and places, created the conditions for a golden age.
The Heavenly City contains the numbers, measures, shapes, proportions,
and musical harmonies that are constant in nature.
It presents a universe which reconciles all the opposite and disparate elements that comprise it.
It is an image of paradise, of the immanent perfection that can be found in every order of existence, from the cosmos to the individual.
This perfection is by no means obvious, but many people in all ages have glimpsed it,
with the effect of changing their lives.
In the Heavenly City diagram visionary experience is combined with numerical and scientific reason
to produce an active symbol of divine wisdom
restored to Earth.'

'The strands of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals,
the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within,
the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes.
The designs of exalted holy places from the prehistoric monuments
at Stonehenge and the Pyramid of Khufu at Giza,
to the world's great cathedrals, mosques, and temples
are based on these same principles of sacred geometry.
As far back as Greek Mystery schools 2500 years ago it was taught that there are
five perfect 3-dimensional forms -
theTetrahedron, Hexahedron (Cube), Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron . . .
collectively known as the Platonic Solids;
and that these form the foundation of everything in the physical world.
Modern scholars ridiculed this idea until the 1980's,
when Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago
demonstrated that the entire Periodic Table of Elements -
literally everything in the physical world -
truly is based on these same five geometric forms.
In fact, throughout modern physics, chemistry, and biology,
the sacred geometric patterns of creation are today being rediscovered.
The ancients knew that these patterns were codes symbolic of our own inner realm
and that the experience of sacred geometry was essential to the education of the soul.
Viewing and contemplating these forms can allow us to gaze directly
at the face of deep wisdom and glimpse the inner workings
of The Universal Mind.'
The five Platonic Solids, upon which all of manifestation is built, are derived from the primal geometry:
Flower of Life
'With all vectors being exactly the same length and angular relationship, from an energetic perspective,
the Vector Equilibrium represents the ultimate and perfect condition
wherein the movement of energy comes to a state of absolute equilibrium,
and therefore absolute stillness and nothingness.
Because of this it is the zero-phase
from which all other forms and dynamic energy events emerge.'
