Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry, is present in the world of forms. In Architecture, from solemn buildings like the Pyramids of Egypt, Temples of Ancient Greece, Cathedrals and among the works of art painting, sculpture and various segments of art and ancient culture. In nature, we find patterns, models, and molecular structures, “fractals,” from the smallest particles, to the complexity of the Cosmos and everything in it, perceptible to man or not. These geometrical archetypes reveal to us the nature of each form and its “vibrational resonances.” This geometry is symbolic in the metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the parts and of everything. This is the principle of unity underlying all geometry that pervades architecture in all its forms, and in its immense diversity. This principle of interconnection, inseparability, and union provides us with a continual reminder of our relationship to the whole, a plan for the mind to the sacred basis of all created things.

Sacred Geometry is also the body of knowledge, and traditions used in the planning and construction of religious structures such as cathedrals, temples, mosques, monuments religious altars, tabernacles as well as places of worship and sacred art. In all these activities, often assigning symbolic and sacred meanings to certain relationships and geometric forms.

The Fibonacci sequence – Golden Ratio

Spiral-logarithmic The Fibonacci sequence is defined by a recurrence relation, where each term is the sum of the two previous ones, beginning with terms 1, 1. That is, it has the following form:
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,377,610 … Extending to infinity. It was named “Sequence of Fibonnaci” after the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci discovered this sequence in the pattern of plant growth. This sequence transferred to flat geometry was known as the “Golden Ratio” represented by the number PHI – 1.6180339 consisting of numbers occurring in the same order, forming a spiral that can be found widely in various natural, mineral and artistic world configurations.

From ancient times, golden proportion is used in art. It is often used in renaissance paintings, such as those of master Giotto. This number is involved with the nature of growth. Phi (not to be confused with Pi number), as it is called “The Gold Number”, the “gold number”, can be found approximately in man (the size of the phalanges, bones of the fingers, for example), In the hives, among numerous other examples involving the order of growth in nature. Precisely because it is found in studies and research in Architecture and Geometry, the Phi number has gained an status of “ideal”, being the target of researchers, artists and writers. The fact of being supported by mathematics is what makes it fascinating.
