Adventures in Math: Sacred Geometry

The Pentagon (US) by Touch of Light

One thing came from my exploration of sacred geometry. I wanted to know more about circles, triangles, and squares — and why we are drawn to them. A circle (a line that meets itself) is complete. For this reason, many people have their sacred space be a circle. Triangles, the most stable shape, appear in building structures. Squares comfort us with their neat understandable boundaries.

Now I understand why I am in awe of The Pentagon. For years, I commuted to Washington D.C., changing buses at the transfer station located at The Pentagon. All major roads in Northern Virginia converge at The Pentagon (formerly called the “Mixing Bowl”). This low concrete building is the power center of the region.

A pentagon consists of three generating triangles, which form a triad. The mystic numbers of five and three combine to form eight which is divided into four and two, which added become six. As each number weaves in and out with the next, they add their special magic to The Pentagon, the building. What emerges from the dance of the numbers is a fortress of strength and resolve.

Note: Yes, I was a witness to the plane going into The Pentagon on 9/11 2001. I lost three friends in the fire. The Pentagon, itself, was on fire for three days until they put it out.
