This piece was done to study what the New Agers call "sacred geometry". Basically, this set of patterns can be seen to describe all things in existence, from the fundamental structures of atoms, elements, cells, dna, embryos, crystals, music and harmonics, light, color, electricity, magnetics, cosmic formations... the list really just goes on and on.
It's a collection of superimposed basic shapes and patterns that hold relevance in numerous philosophical systems and religions, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Daoism, Jewish Kabbalah, Catholicism, New Age mysticism, Wicca, and more. They were known to and studied by intellects ranging from the ancient Egyptian and Chinese engineers, Mayans, the Greek philosophers (especially Plato), to the artists and engineers of the Renaissance (especially Da Vinci), to modern minds like Einstein and Jung, and are now being applied to cutting-edge physics, cosmology, and quantum mechanics.
Even when observed from a philosophical vacuum, this stuff is absolutely astonishing. Its simplicity and complexity, its curves and angles, live completely in harmony. Contained within can be found, as far as I can tell, all of the mathematical foundations for an incredibly deep understanding of how our universe works.
It's formation is established simply by starting with a single circle, and performing a series of movements and duplications. The geometric relationships between these circles, and the lines drawn by connecting their center-points, describe immense (ridiculous) amounts of mathematics, from fundamental to high-level: pi, regular polygons, primary angles, trigonometric relationships, the platonic solids, binary arithmetic, logarithmic structure, phi, the golden ratio, the fibonacci sequence, and multi-dimensional calculation, to name a few.
Included patterns: The Seed of Life, the Flower of Life, the Fruit of Life, Metatron's Cube, and the Circled Squares.
I know it's not exactly the most original thing in the world, but in studying these patterns and geometries, I couldn't find a single clear image containing all of these structures in one concise picture. So... here it is: "Universal Geometry."
Plus, I think it's amazingly beautiful.
