Ok GLPers this could be the KEY, to the nature of reality, the theory of everything, the most secret occult knowledge that has been hidden from you after the destruction of the school of knowledge ran by pythagoras. (its also possibly the longest sigle post ever on GLP, so be patient)

1. Introduction
What is ‘sacred geometry’? Whether it refers to Stonehenge, the Egyptian pyramids, Gothic
cathedrals or Tibetan mandalas, this notion is problematic in such contexts because whether one
should regard the geometry of ancient monuments or religious artefacts as sacred depends upon
one's own religious beliefs (or lack of them). Indeed, whether the word ‘sacred’ should be
attributed to anything at all is contingent upon whether one has such beliefs. What is sacred to
Christians or ancient Egyptians is usually not so to Jews or Hindus. However, true sacredness
transcends cultural relativism and religious differences; it must exist in its own right instead of
being merely an attribute projected onto some object by a particular religious frame of mind.
Geometry that is sacred only in the eyes of the believer cannot be truly such. So what makes a
geometrical design sacred? Indeed, does sacred geometry actually exist in this universal sense?
Supposing that God exists (otherwise the word ‘sacred’ is meaningless and such geometry


becomes mere religious doodles), sacred geometry would be that which embodies in a geometrical
representation not just symbolic but quantitative aspects of cosmic reality (spiritual as well as
physical) designed by the mind of God. It must be neither man-made symbolism, such as a cross or
a six-pointed star, nor just a metaphor of universal order expressed in the doctrinal ideas of a
particular religion or spiritual philosophy, which followers of another religion may not accept.
Instead, sacred geometry must be a geometrical pattern or form depicting some quantitative aspect
of the divine design of reality transcending all religious metaphors. It would be sacred because it
encapsulates what actually exists — whether this is known or unknown — and not merely what
fallible human beings speculate about in their mythologies and theologies and incorporate into the

architecture of their churches. True sacred geometry does not embody human ideas about the
nature of reality or God; it necessarily transcends them. But how then would we discern the divine
design of reality, which this sacred geometry is supposed to express? Indeed, how would we
recognise its sacredness? For those mathematicians or theoretical physicists who are Platonists,
one of the signatures of mathematical truth is its beauty. However, sacred geometry has to possess
more than just beautiful properties that no human mind could have artfully fabricated. Beauty may
be a necessary attribute but it is not sufficient. Although what is sacred truth must be beautiful,
what is beautiful may not even be true, let alone of divine origin. Sacred geometry must have such
extraordinary properties (and so many of them as to discount the possibility of their being due to
chance) that they can only indicate the existence of transcendental intelligence as well as artistry
behind the sacred object. There must be no rational, conventional explanation for its possession of
so many mathematically miraculous properties. Given this stringent requirement, how many
examples of sacred geometry discussed in so-called ‘New Age’ books would meet this criterion?!
This article will prove that the five Platonic solids (called in mathematics the five ‘regular
polyhedra’ because they are the only 3-dimensional shapes with equal sides) have far deeper
significance than what hitherto has been known to mathematicians. It will show that their
geometry is sacred in the above sense — that is, to say, not because God constructed the world out
of these forms (as the ancient Greeks believed) but because they collectively embody the Divine
blueprint underlying all levels of existence, including the physical universe.

The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life (Fig. 1) has claim to be sacred geometry par excellence because, according to
Kabbalah (the Jewish mystical tradition), it is God’s blueprint for Creation. It portrays the ten
divine qualities, or Sephiroth (sing: Sephirah), as spheres arranged on three Pillars and connected
by 22 Paths. The uppermost Supernal Triad of Kether, Chokmah and Binah signify the triple
Godhead outside Creation. The seven Sephiroth of Construction, Chesed, Geburah, Netzach, Hod,
Yesod and Malkuth, represent aspects of God’s immanence in Creation. The ‘Gulf’ or ‘Abyss’ of
Daath separates them from the Supernal Triad, which is not a Sephirah. Malkuth, the lowest
Sephirah of Construction, signifies the material manifestation of the Tree of Life, whether a
subatomic particle, the human body or the whole universe. The Sephiroth manifest in four Worlds
that are stages in the descent of the Divine Life into matter. They correspond to the traditional
Christian divisions: Spirit, soul, psyche and body. The Godname of a Sephirah is its essence or
expression in the highest World of Atziluth (the Archetypal World). Through their many
elaborations by the human mind, it is mostly the Godnames that became anthropomorphized into
3
the gods and goddesses of ancient mythologies. (Judaism and Christianity focussed on YAHWEH,
the Godname of Chokmah, although other Godnames appear in the Old Testament).
By means of gematria, wherein numbers are assigned to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet so
that hidden meanings in the texts of scriptures may be extracted from phrases and sentences,
Hebrew words acquire number values that are the sum of their letter numbers. In my book The
Image of God in Matter (1) I proved that the number values of the Godnames of the ten Sephiroth:

(All Godname numbers appearing in the text are written in bold-face type)

prescribe — geometrically as well as arithmetically — the Tree of Life topography of all possible
levels of reality, including the 4-dimensional space-time domain of physical (brain) consciousness.
Godname numbers also define the dynamics and structure of the basic building blocks of matter,
which my book proves is what particle physicists call a ‘superstring’ (see Article 2). The reason
for this is that the superstring is the microscopic manifestation of the Tree of Life blueprint, whose
geometry is defined by Godname numbers. The Godname numbers associated with the Sephiroth
are potent ‘master numbers’ quantifying the Tree of Life nature of reality, this prescription
becoming ever more concrete, further down the Tree the Sephirah is located.
The presence of all ten Godname numbers defining properties of a geometrical pattern or set of
geometrical objects such as the Platonic solids is a necessary and sufficient condition for it to
constitute ‘sacred geometry.’ However, a mathematical pattern or object possesses sacred
geometry not just because it embodies one or more numbers of cosmic significance (although this
invariably turns out to be the case) but because the ten Godname numbers defines its structure. In
the case of the 3-dimensional Tree of Life, my book shows that its projection on a plane is
minimally generated from 21 points arranged in rows of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 points, where 21 is the
number value of EHYEH, the Godname of Kether. The Tree of Life consists of 10 corners of 16
triangles assembled by the joining of 34 of their 48 sides to create 22 sides or ‘Paths,’ of which 12
4
are the edges of two tetrahedra. 26 sides disappear in their joining, and this is the number value of
YAHWEH, whilst 50 (the number of corners, edges, triangles and tetrahedra comprising the Tree,
i.e., its geometrical elements) is the number value of ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah expressing
the most abstract archetypes about divine form. How the remaining Godnames prescribe the
geometry of the Tree requires consideration of the tetractys, which is discussed next.
___________________________________________________________

3. The Tetractys
At the heart of the Pythagorean philosophy based upon the power of numbers was the tetractys, a
triangular array of ten dots, or ’yods’ (2), arranged in four rows (Fig. 2). With no insight into what
Pythagoras taught other than what is provided by the few remnants of his teachings distorted by
later generations of commentators, scholars of ancient Greek mathematics assume that the tetractys
represents the numbers 1, 2, 3 & 4 summing to 10, which, as their sacred Decad, the Pythagoreans
regarded as the perfect number. But it meant to them far more than this. According to
H.P. Blavatsky: “The ten Points inscribed within that ‘Pythagorean triangle’ are worth all the
theogonies and angelologies ever emanated from the theological brain” (3). Partly the reason for
this is that the tetractys signifies the same as the Tree of Life, namely, the ten-fold nature of God
(Fig. 3 shows this equivalence in detail). But — more important for the present discussion — the
main reason for the Pythagorean reverence for the tetractys is that numbers expressing information
about the nature of reality (space-time and beyond) manifest in objects possessing sacred geometry
when they are re-assembled from tetractyses. In other words, the tetractys is the key that unlocks
information about reality encoded in sacred geometry. This is the real reason why the followers of
Pythagoras esteemed the symbol at the heart of their master’s teachings, swearing by the oath:
I swear by the discoverer of the Tetractys,
Which is the spring of all our wisdom,
The perennial root of Nature’s font (4).
The numbers generated by triangulating objects with sacred geometry and transforming the
resulting triangles into tetractyses are of three types: 1. number of yods belonging to tetractyses, 2.
number of yods at corners of tetractyses (as Figure 3 indicates, these symbolise the Supernal Triad
of Kether, Chokmah and Binah), and 3. number of yods arranged at the corners and centre of a
hexagon within each tetractys (symbolising the seven Sephiroth of Construction, these will be
called ‘hexagonal yods’).
________________________________________________________

4. The inner form of the Tree of Life
The 3-dimensional Tree of Life with its 16 triangles turned into tetractyses comprises 70 yods. But
my book reveals for the first time that the Tree has an inner form made up of two identical sets of
5
seven enfolded, regular polygons (triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, decagon and
dodecagon), which share what I call the ‘root edge’ (Fig. 4). This extends between Daath and
Tiphareth, the centre of the Tree of Life in both a physical and a metaphysical sense. Remarkably,
these 14 enfolded, regular polygons have 70 corners — the same number as the number of yods in
the outer form of the Tree when assembled from tetractyses. This is not coincidental but the
manifestation of a hidden regularity or pattern of order and design. Just as a DNA molecule
encodes the development of a living organism from a single cell, so this inner Tree is found to
encode in a geometrical way the self-replication of its outer form to map all possible levels or
states of consciousness attainable by evolution. The resulting ‘Cosmic Tree of Life’ (CTOL)
consists of 91 overlapping Trees of Life, where
91 = 12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 62.
They correspond to the 91 subplanes of the seven cosmic planes described in Theosophical
literature (the cosmic physical plane comprises seven planes with 49 subplanes (49 is the number
value of the Godname EL ChAI assigned to Yesod) and the six cosmic superphysical planes
comprise 42 subplanes — see Article 1). Calling the Sephirah of each Tree a ‘Sephirothic Level’
(SL), CTOL is found to consist of 550 SLs, where
55
55 55
550 = 55 55 55
55 55 55 55
and
10
9 8
55 = 7 6 5 = 12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52.
4 3 2 1
This is the first indication of the central role played by the Pythagorean tetractys in mathematically
representing the properties of CTOL.
As these equations indicate, this map of all levels of being is a geometrical object the beauty of
whose mathematical proportions reflects its divine design. As another example of its beautiful
properties, this ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ consists of 3108 triangles and their corners and sides, where
3108 = 14 + 34 + 54 + 74.
My book discusses many other examples. With their triangles turned into tetractyses, the lowest 49
Trees of CTOL mapping the cosmic physical plane have 2480 yods, which is the number of yods
in 248 tetractyses. Compare this with the prediction made by superstring theory that the unified
6
force between superstrings in ordinary matter is transmitted by 248 particles (so-called ‘gauge
bosons’). Each is described by a mathematical function called a ‘gauge field’ having ten
independent components because superstring theory predicts that space-time has ten dimensions
(the components are measured along the directions of these dimensions). This demonstrates that
the number characterising the kind of perfect, unbroken, mathematical symmetry of superstring
forces described by the so-called ‘E8 group’ is encoded in the map of the cosmic physical plane,
the ten yods of the equivalent 248 tetractyses denoting the ten components of each of the 248
gauge fields. Another 248 particles are predicted to mediate interactions between superstrings
making up what theoretical physicists call ‘shadow matter.’ This is an as yet undetected, invisible
kind of matter that may comprise some of the ‘dark matter’ believed by astronomers to make up
about 90% of the mass of the universe. Its invisibility is due to the prediction that only the force of
gravity acts between superstrings of ordinary matter and shadow matter. Most of these particles
play no part in the physics of the cooled-down universe today because they are too massive to be
created by the typical energies with which subatomic particles interact. The lighter particles of
shadow matter are predicted to form a kind of parallel universe that co-exists with the one visible
to human sight but which is ever beyond the ability of the five human senses to detect.
The superstring parameters 248 and (248 + 248 = 496) are also encoded in the inner form of the
Tree of Life whose 49-fold replication maps the cosmic physical plane. (It is remarkable and no
coincidence that 496 is the number value of Malkuth, the tenth Sephirah, signifying the physical
universe. My book explains why this is so). The seven separate, regular polygons of the inner Tree
have 48 corners (Fig. 5). Together with the two endpoints of the root edge considered separately
(which formally correspond to corners) they constitute 50 corners. This is how the Godname
ELOHIM with number value 50 prescribes this pattern of sacred geometry. With their 48
triangular sectors turned into tetractyses, the seven polygons have 55 corners of tetractyses and
240 hexagonal yods, so that the two sets of polygons contain 480 hexagonal yods. But the numbers
240 and 480 are part of the group-theoretical description of the mathematical symmetry exhibited
by the unified superstring force, for 240 is the number of non-zero roots of the gauge symmetry
group E8 and 480 is the number of non-zero roots of the superstring symmetry group E8×E8! So we
see that a parameter characterising the group-mathematics of the unified superstring force is
encoded in the inner form of the Tree of Life. This is just one example among many discussed in
my book of how its sacred geometry incorporates the mathematical structure of superstring theory
and embodies numbers of significance to particle physics.
Inspection of the list of Godname numbers given above shows that 240 is the sum:
7
240 = 21 + 26 + 50 + 31 + 36 + 76
of the Godname numbers of the first six Sephiroth of the Tree of Life, which are located at the
corners of a hexagon or, equivalently, a six-pointed star. The encoding of the number 240 in the
inner form of the Tree of Life has its counterpart in the 49 trees representing the cosmic physical
plane. As we have seen, they contain 2480 yods. The lowest tree in CTOL contains 80 yods. There
are therefore 2400 yods above the lowest tree in this section of CTOL, i.e., the yods in 240
tetractyses. The 248 roots of E8 consist of eight zero roots and 240 non-zero roots. This is
paralleled in, respectively, the eight and 240 tetractyses whose yod populations are the number of
yods in the lowest tree and the 48 trees above it mapping the cosmic physical plane.
It is also remarkable that there are 67 yods below Binah of the lowest tree and 73 yods up to
Chokmah (Fig. 6), for the former is the number value of the Hebrew word ‘Binah’ and the latter is
the number value of the Hebrew word ‘Chokmah.’ This obviously cannot be coincidence but
demonstrates a profound connection between the names of the Sephiroth (as well as their
Godnames) and numbers generated in the Tree of Life when its triangles are changed into
tetractyses. Correspondence between the inner and outer forms of the tree is also demonstrated by:
1. the seven separate regular polygons making up the former have 48 corners, whilst there are 48
yods in the lowest tree of CTOL up to Chesed, the first Sephirah of Construction (Fig. 5),
2. both sets of enfolded polygons have 70 corners, whilst the Tree of Life contains 70 yods
(Fig. 7);
3. both sets of enfolded polygons have 80 corners of their 70 tetractys-converted sectors, whilst
the lowest tree in CTOL contains 80 yods (Fig. 8).
Other remarkable correspondences are discussed in my book.

5. The Platonic solids
Plato propounded in his Timaeus the Pythagorean doctrine that particles of the four Elements Fire,
Air, Earth and Water had the shapes of, respectively, the tetrahedron, octahedron, cube and
icosahedron (Fig. 9). The Pythagoreans associated the fifth regular polyhedron, the dodecahedron,
with the cosmic sphere, which came later to be identified with the fifth Element, Aether. But the
five regular polyhedra have a more profound significance than this — one that truly justifies their
geometry being called ‘sacred.’ In order to uncover it, one must regard the tetractys as the
universal template out of which all sacred geometry is built. We found in the last section how,
when CTOL was considered as assembled from tetractyses, a number of significance to
superstring theory appeared in a region of CTOL having ‘physical meaning’ (the word ‘physical’
8
is used in its widest possible sense, pertaining not only to space-time, which Article 2 indicates is
mapped by the lowest seven trees of CTOL, but to its cosmic counterpart — the lowest 49 trees).
Finding such a scientific parameter of cosmic relevance is evidence of the sacred geometry of the
Tree of Life. But it requires reconstructing the Tree of Life from tetractyses so as to make manifest
the information encoded in its geometry. Likewise, to uncover information encoded in the five
Platonic solids, we must imagine their faces constructed from tetractyses. A triangular face
transforms into three tetractyses, a square face is made up of four tetractyses and a pentagonal face
is composed of five tetractyses (Fig. 10). Notice that 5, 4 & 3 are the sizes of the well-known,
right-angled triangle illustrating Pythagoras’ Theorem. Notice also that the centre of a solid and
any two of its adjacent corners form a triangle in its interior. Each polyhedron is built also from
such triangles in its interior. A Platonic solid will be called ‘type A’ if its internal triangles are
turned into single tetractyses and ‘type B’ if they are divided into three tetractyses (internal
triangles divided into three tetractyses will also be called ‘type B’ in order to distinguish them
from the internal triangles of type A solids).
Table 1 displays the numbers of corners (C) edges (E) and faces (F) of the five Platonic solids and
the yod populations of their faces and interiors. The former are related by Euler’s equation for a
regular polyhedron:
C – E + F = 2.
Inspection of the Godname numbers listed earlier tells us that the most obvious sign that the
Platonic solids constitute sacred geometry is that they have 50 corners and 50 faces, i.e., their
shapes are collectively prescribed by the number value of ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah, which
is the third member of the Supernal Triad in which the possibility of form— the abstract notion of
spatial relationship — first arises. Indeed, I provide in my book many examples of how
geometrical forms or patterns of numbers expressing parameters of superstring theory or the Tree
of Life are always defined arithmetically by the ten Godname numbers. Below are listed examples
of how Godname numbers define the geometrical composition and yod population of each solid,
together with other properties illustrating their correspondence with the outer and inner forms of
the Tree of Life:

6. Discussion
It is remarkable (as well as indicative of their supernatural/archetypal design) that the four Platonic
solids thought by the ancient Greeks to be the shapes of particles of Earth, Water, Air and Fire are

made up of 128 polyhedral corners, edges and faces, where
128 = 21 + 26 + 50 + 31
is the sum of the Godname numbers of the first four Sephiroth.
Let us now compare the hexagonal yod populations of these solids with properties of the outer and
inner forms of the Tree of Life shown in, respectively, Figures 1 and 4:
1. The surface of the tetrahedron has 48 hexagonal yods. This is the number of corners of the
seven separate, regular polygons (as well as the number of their tetractyses) constituting the
inner form of the Tree. 48 is also the number of corners, sides and triangles in its outer form
and the number of yods in the Tree of Life up to the horizontal Path connecting Geburah and
Chesed, i.e., the part of the Tree spanned by the seven Sephiroth of Construction contains 48
yods. The tetrahedron embodies the minimum number of geometrical elements defining both
the outer and the inner forms of the Tree;
2. The faces of the octahedron and cube each contain 96 hexagonal yods. This is the number of
corners of the two sets of polygons;
3. The surfaces of the tetrahedron, octahedron and cube comprise 240 hexagonal yods, which
compares with the 240 hexagonal yods in the 48 tetractyses of the seven polygons;
4. The surface of the icosahedron has 240 hexagonal yods, which compares with the 240
hexagonal yods of the 48 tetractyses in the second set of seven polygons.
5. The surfaces of the four Platonic solids, whose shapes the ancient Greeks thought were those
of the particles of the four Elements, contain (240 + 240 = 480) hexagonal yods, which
compares with the 480 hexagonal yods in both sets of seven polygons. This correspondence
with the inner form of the Tree and their prescription by Godname numbers are evidence of the
sacred geometry of these solids; they embody numbers of universal physical significance,
namely the (240 + 240 = 480) gauge fields corresponding to the (240 + 240 = 480) non-zero
roots of E8×E8 mediating the unified superstring force. The mirror symmetry of the inner form
of the Tree explains why these 480 gauge fields are divided into two similar sets of 240. It
confirms the basic Pythagorean insight that the tetrahedron, octahedron, cube and icosahedron
defined the physics of the cosmos, if not the sense of the teaching attributed to them.
The interior of the type A dodecahedron has 70 yods surrounding its centre. As it has 20
polyhedral corners, (1 + 70 + 20 = 91) yods are needed to construct its shape from tetractyses.
Type B comprises 550 hexagonal yods. Symbolising for the Pythagoreans the cosmic sphere, the
dodecahedron therefore embodies the number (91) of Trees in CTOL and the number (550) of its
13
SLs, i.e., it represents the cosmic version of the Tree of Life. The Godname ELOHIM prescribes
this representation because the dodecahedron has 50 corners and edges.
More evidence for the sacred geometry of the five Platonic solids comes from considering their
yod populations. Remarkably, in view of the central significance of the number 10 for the
Pythagoreans, who regarded it as ‘all perfect,’ the number of yods inside the five type B solids
surrounding their centres is 1000, i.e., 103. The total number of yods surrounding their centres is
1820. As 1820 = 26×70, they have as many yods as 26 separate Trees of Life, showing how the
Godname YAHWEH with number value 26 prescribes their yod population. It can be proved that
1820 is the number of yods in 36 overlapping Trees with their triangles turned into tetractyses,
illustrating how ELOHA, the Godname of Geburah with number value 36, also prescribes this
number. 1820 is the number of yods surrounding the common centre of five type B Platonic solids
nested one inside another. Furthermore, they have the property that their 50 faces comprise 550
corners, sides and tetractys triangles, i.e., 550 geometrical elements define their shapes, whilst
their interiors have 91 corners of tetractyses. This is remarkable in view of the fact that the 91
Trees of CTOL have 550 SLs. Their embodiment of the basic numbers characterising the Tree of
Life map of all levels of reality is evidence of the sacred geometry of the five Platonic solids.
Perhaps the most spectacular property of the five Platonic solids with Type B internal triangles is
the following: there are 180 tetractyses in their 50 faces and 270 internal tetractyses, a total of 450
tetractyses. Of the 1820 yods surrounding the centres of the solids, 450 yods are centres of
tetractyses, leaving 1370 yods lining their edges. This is the number of yods in the inner form of
the Tree of Life with Type B triangles as the sectors of the 14 enfolded polygons (Fig. 11))! What
more convincing evidence is needed of the Tree of Life character of the five Platonic solids? The
number of yods needed to create the shapes of their external and internal tetractyses is that of 137
tetractyses. This is how the five Platonic solids embody the number 137 defining the fine-structure
constant. We saw in Section 4 during the discussion of the collective properties of the first four
Platonic solids that they have on average 137 yods in their faces. Now we see that this number also
defines the shape of all five solids.
My book Extra-sensory Perception of Quarks (5) and its sequel, ESP of Quarks and Superstrings
(6), provided a wealth of evidence indicating that the Theosophists Annie Besant and
C.W. Leadbeater used a form of ESP to describe quarks, the constituents of the protons and
neutrons making up atomic nuclei (see Article 2). They also proved that the ‘ultimate physical
atom’ (UPA), which Besant and Leadbeater claimed are the basic constituents of atoms, are
fundamental particles making up the up and down quarks in nuclei. According to Leadbeater, there
14
is a ‘positive’ and a ‘negative’ UPA (Fig_12), one the mirror image of the other. Each comprises
ten closed curves, or ‘whorls,’ which spiral 2½ times towards the base of the UPA, where three
thicker whorls separate from the other seven, both strands then spiralling separately 2½ times in
opposite senses around the axis of the UPA towards its top. Each whorl is a helix in which
Leadbeater counted 1680 circular turns. In my new book The Image of God in Matter I identified
the UPA with the superstring constituents of up and down quarks and showed how the number
1680 — a structural parameter of the superstring — is encoded in the Tree of Life and is
mathematically defined by the ten Godname numbers. Using Table I, which shows the yod
populations of the Platonic solids, it is easy to calculate that the five nested, type B Platonic solids
contain 1680 yods which, apart from those that are the 50 polyhedral corners, are not corners of
tetractyses.
This astounding embodiment of a number of cosmic significance illustrates the sacred character of
the geometry of the Platonic solids, for the Godname ELOHIM prescribes just that number of
points whose distribution in 3-dimensional space forms five regular polyhedra, the construction of
which from tetractyses requires (including these points) 1680 yods other than corners of
tetractyses. The kernel 168 of this structural parameter of the superstring constituents of quarks is
in fact the number value of Cholem Yesodeth (lit: “breaker of the foundations”), the Hebrew name
of the Mundane Chakra of Malkuth, which is the physical, cosmic manifestation of this Sephirah.
So Kabbalah provides remarkable, independent confirmation of the number clairvoyantly
determined by Leadbeater! That this might be coincidental is implausible because the number 168
refers appropriately to the very Sephirah signifying the physical manifestation of the Tree of Life.
Furthermore, using the numbers listed in the table, it is straightforward to calculate that 168 is the
average number of yods (including their centres) in the four type A Platonic solids representing
Earth, Air, Fire and Water. This is an amazing embodiment of the number characterising the
structure in ordinary space of the subquark state of the superstring. The 120 tetractyses from which
the 38 faces of the first four solids can be assembled have 248 corners and sides. In other words,
248 geometrical elements are needed to shape the surfaces of the Platonic solids corresponding to
the four Elements! It was mentioned earlier that superstring theory predicts that 248 particles
transmit the unified force operating between superstrings very briefly after the Big Bang, later
remnants of which bound (according to my analysis of Besant’s and Leadbeater’s observations)
three superstrings into quarks and then three quarks into the protons and neutrons that eventually
built up through stellar nuclear synthesis the atomic nuclei of the 92 naturally occurring elements!
In this sense, therefore, these four Platonic solids do determine the fundamental substance of the
material world through their shapes — just as the ancient Pythagoreans claimed they did, although
15
not, of course, as the actual form of the particles making up the four Elements. Basic parameters of
superstring theory (one obtained by psychic means and awaiting confirmation by theoretical
developments in particle physics) are therefore embodied in these four Platonic solids as their
structural properties.
________________________________________________________

7. Conclusion
This article has demonstrated the seemingly miraculous way in which the geometry of the Platonic
solids embodies numbers (240, 480 and 248) predicted by a scientific theory to describe the basic
forces operating in the natural world and numbers (168 and 1680) predicted by psychic
observations of superstrings to be their structural parameters. Another example of the latter is the
fact that the UPA comprises 50 revolutions of its ten whorls, each one making five revolutions.
This compares with the 50 corners of the five regular polyhedra. Both properties exist because
both are Tree of Life structures prescribed by the mathematical archetype embodied in the Divine
Name ELOHIM, whose number value is 50. The article has also demonstrated the remarkable
parallels between the stages of unfolding of the inner form of the Tree of Life and the sequence of
Platonic solids, reaching its culmination in the dodecahedron. This embodies two parameters of
CTOL (91 and 550), showing that it is an analogous representation, just as the other solids are
analogous to distinct stages of development of the inner form of the Tree of Life. For the
Pythagoreans, mathematics could not be separated from theology because they taught, “the
essence of the Gods is defined by Number.” Their teaching is amply illustrated by the five Platonic
solids, whose beautiful, sacred geometry is prescribed by the number values of the ten divine
names as the counterpart of the outer and inner forms of the Tree of Life, the universal blueprint.

ADDENDUM
THE PYRAMID

Although not a regular polyhedron, the square pyramid has remarkable properties indicating that it,
too, possesses sacred geometry. These are investigated below.
Turning its four triangular faces and the four triangular sectors of its base into tetractyses, one
finds (Fig. 13) that there are 21 yods along its edges (five corners, two hexagonal yods inside each
of the eight edges). In other words, the number value of EHYEH (“I am”), which is the Godname
of Kether, the first Sephirah, is the minimum number of yods needed to create the edges of the
pyramid. This illustrates the minimal nature of this Godname assigned to the first Sephirah, which
signifies the embryonic source of Creation. Considering next the pyramid’s five faces (base
16
included), there are five pyramid corners that are corners of tetractyses, one centre of the base that
is the corner of four tetractyses, 12 sides of tetractyses and eight tetractyses, making a total of 26
corners, sides and tetractyses. 26 is the number value of YAHWEH, Godname of Chokmah, the
second Sephirah. YAHWEH prescribes the minimum number of geometrical elements (points,
lines and triangles) needed to construct the pyramid.
Now, as was done for the Platonic solids, let the triangular faces of the pyramid be constructed
from three tetractyses, not one, so as to be consistent with construction of the square base from
four tetractyses. As before, there are five pyramid corners and a centre of its square base, but now
also four centres of its triangular faces, which are corners of tetractyses, making a total of ten
corners of tetractyses. There are 24 sides of tetractyses (eight pyramid edges, four sides of
tetractyses inside the perimeter of the base and three inside each triangular face), and there are 16
tetractyses (four in the square base and three in each face). The total number of corners, edges and
triangles is 10 + 24 + 16 = 50, which is the number value of ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah, and
the next Sephirah after Chokmah in the Tree of Life! This is appropriate in view of the fact that,
according to Kabbalah, the most primitive notion of relationship and form first arises in Binah. Its
Godname is here prescribing the geometrical composition of the pyramid in terms of its
component corners, edges and triangles — the very geometrical elements that define its shape.
Next, consider the central, vertical line joining the apex of the pyramid to the centre of its base
(Fig. 14). This is part of the assembly of the pyramid from tetractyses because it is the common
edge of four internal, right-angled triangles whose eight other edges are the four sloping, pyramid
sides and the four half-diagonals of the square base. So there are five geometrical elements inside
the pyramid (four triangles and their shared side). A pyramid whose faces are single tetractyses has
(26 + 5 = 31) geometrical elements, where 31 is the number value of EL, the Godname of Chesed,
the next Sephirah after Binah. A pyramid with three tetractyses in each face has (50 + 5 = 55) such
elements, where
1
2 3
55 = 4 5 6
7 8 9 10
The 55th SL from the bottom of CTOL is the 496th from the top of CTOL, where 496 is both the
number value of the Hebrew word ‘Malkuth’ signifying (on one level of meaning) the physical
universe and the number of spin-1 particles that superstring theory predicts mediates the unified
force between superstrings. 496 is what mathematicians would describe as the 31st triangular
number, i.e.,
17
496 = 1 + 2 + 3 +… + 31.
It cannot surely be coincidence that the Godname numbers of the first four Sephiroth quantify
successive stages of assembly of the pyramid from tetractyses, 21 yods creating its edge, 26 (then
50) geometrical elements forming its faces, and 31 elements forming its volume? If the four
internal triangles are now regarded not as single tetractyses but as three tetractyses, this adds nine
yods per triangle, that is, 36 yods in all, where 36 is the number value of ELOHA, the Godname of
the next Sephirah after Chesed.
Counting the yods in the 20 tetractyses assembling the pyramid, one finds that there are 80 yods
(six inside, 74 on the faces and base). Of these, ten are corners of tetractyses (five pyramid corners,
one centre of the base and four centres of its faces), this type of yod symbolising members of the
Supernal Triad. So there are 70 yods, which are not corners of tetractyses, that is, there are 70
hexagonal yods, this type of yod symbolising the Sephiroth of Construction. Compare this with the
fact that the Tree of Life is made up of 70 yods in its 16 tetractys-converted triangles, whilst the
lowest tree in CTOL has 80 yods in its 25 tetractys-converted triangles (see Figures. 7 and 8). We
find that the pyramid is constructed from as many yods as there are yods in the lowest Tree of Life
of CTOL. This is very remarkable. In fact, as Figure 7 shows, 80 is the number of corners of the
94 tetractyses making up the two sets of seven enfolded regular polygons constituting the inner
form of the Tree of Life. Moreover, it is the number value of Yesod, the penultimate Sephirah. But
the mathematical analogy extends further: the 70:10 differentiation between hexagonal yods and
yods at corners of tetractyses making up the pyramid corresponds to the 70 yods of the Tree of
Life and the extra ten yods that are added to it when it is turned into the lowest Tree in CTOL. It
also corresponds to the 70 corners of the two sets of seven enfolded polygons and their ten extra
centres, which form the 80 corners of their tetractyses. Moreover, as the surface of the pyramid has
74 yods and the base has 25 yods, there are 49 yods in its faces above its base, where 49 is the
number value of EL ChAI, Godname of Yesod. The total number of yods above its base is 55,
which is the number of corners of the 48 tetractyses in the seven separate regular polygons. There
is therefore a significant analogy between the pyramid, the Tree of Life and its inner form.
We have found that 21 is the least number of yods needed to create the edges of a pyramid and 80
is its yod population. Suppose that we now assign either the number 21 to each yod making up the
body of the pyramid or the number 80 to each yod on its edges (Fig. 15). In either case, their sum
= 21×80 = 1680, which is the number of turns counted by Leadbeater in the helical whorl of the
UPA. In this sense the pyramid, when seen as constructed by tetractyses, embodies the very
cosmic parameter characterising the structure of the basic unit of matter, namely, the superstring.
18
In fact, the meaning of the Hebrew word ‘Yesod,’ whose number value is 80, is ‘foundation,’
which is very appropriate in this context. The 26 geometrical elements making up the faces and
base of the pyramid (and therefore determining its shape) correspond to the 26 space-time
dimensions of the closed bosonic string as which I have interpreted a whorl.
Some writers have contended that the Great Pyramid is a scale model of the Earth and claim to
have found all manner of terrestrial measures in its dimensions. Whether or not any of these claims
is right, one can say with certainty that the pyramid shape bears a remarkable analogy to the outer
and inner forms of the Tree of Life, as well as that hidden in its construction from tetractyses can
be said to be the number quantifying the structure of what ultimately constitutes the universe,
namely, the superstring. Of course, as the number 1680 is not present in a patent way but requires
multiplication of two numbers that are implicit in its construction from tetractyses, sceptics might
dismiss this as yet more pyramidology. However, they cannot so easily ignore the remarkable
parallels with the Tree of Life and the lowest tree of CTOL. Nor can they dismiss the fact that at
least six Godname numbers quantify the geometrical composition of the pyramid in such a way
that is consistent with the order of appearance of their corresponding Sephiroth. They may argue
that I have merely looked for properties that can be quantified by Godname numbers. If these
properties were more convoluted in their meaning, this might be a fair criticism. But one does not
have to search hard for Godname numbers in the pyramid, as one would if there really were no
underlying connection between them and its geometrical design. On the contrary, their presence in
the geometry of the pyramid is so natural that it cannot plausibly be regarded as coincidental or
contrived. Moreover, the mathematical properties of the pyramid are arithmetically expressed by
the Pythagorean Tetrad, or number 4, which I have proved (7) expresses the geometrical properties
of the outer and inner forms of the Tree of Life — indeed, any object that possesses sacred
geometry because it is a mathematical counterpart to the latter, as well as numbers of cosmic
significance, like group-theoretical parameters of the superstring symmetry groups E8 and E8×E8
(see Article 1). Beautiful examples of how the Tetrad defines properties of the pyramid are:
1. its surface is made up of 64 hexagonal yods, where 64 = 43;
2. it is made up of 70 hexagonal yods, where
7
7 7
70 = 7 7 7
7 7 7 7
and 7 is the fourth, odd natural integer;
3. it is made up of 80 yods, where
19
8
8 8
80 = 8 8 8
8 8 8 8
and 8 is the fourth, even natural integer;
4. its 20 tetractyses have ten corners, where 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 and 20 is the 10th.even integer.
It is clear that the presence of Godname numbers in the square pyramid has not been contrived. If
it had been and this shape did not possess sacred geometry, there would not be so many powerful
examples of how the Tetrad expresses its properties — always a signature of an object having
sacred geometry when it is reconstructed from tetractyses, as my book The Image of God in Matter
amply demonstrates. Instead, the presence of Godname numbers reflects the fact that the geometry
of the pyramid is truly sacred. As the three-dimensional counterpart to the Tree of Life, its
properties are necessarily prescribed by Godnames.

The main reason for the Pythagorean reverence for the tetractys is that numbers expressing information

when they are re-assembled from tetractyses. In other words, the tetractys is the key that unlocks
information about reality encoded in sacred geometry.

The number of chromosomes in the human cell (46) is the average number of points, lines & triangles needed to construct the faces of the four Platonic solids thought by the ancient Greeks to be the shapes of the particles of the four elements Earth, water, air & fire:
[link to smphillips.8m.com]

The number of spin-1 particles predicted to mediate the unified force between superstrings (248) is the number of points & lines needed to construct the faces of the first four Platonic solids.
[link to smphillips.8m.com]
(p. 21).
The 64 vertices, edges & faces in each half of the first four Platonic solids are the polyhedral counterpart of the 64 codons in hunman mRNA and the 64 anticodons in human tRNa.
[link to smphillips.8m.com]

Here is proof that the sacred geometry of the Platonic solids embodies fundamental numbers like the human diploid number 46, the dimension 248 of the superstring gauge symmetry group E8 and the 64x3 codon pattern in human RNA.

Sacred geometry is therefore like a rosetta stone of the universe, it is beyond chance that it is a random occurance, and therefore must be divine.
 Quoting: Thesonofhendrix

nature is math. i know.

but does a primitive have to call it sacred?

sounds so stone-agey...

It is all contained in a book called "The Mathematical Connection Between Religion and Science", to be published soon by Antony Rowe Publishers (UK).

good post OP. Only sacred geometry I'm familiar with is the band Tool's music. They use sacred geometry to write their tunes, specifically the drummer, Danny Carrey. Which is why their music destroys all other music.

Re: The Sacred Geometry of the Platonic Solids
The gematria number value of YAHWEH, the well-known Hebrew name of God, is 26:
YHVH

Y = 10
H = 5
V = 6
H = 5
Total = 26

This is the number of dimensions of space-time predicted by quantum mechanics for spinless strings.

The gematria number value of ELOHIM ("And ELOHIM said: let us make man in our image") is 50. This is the number of vertices of the five Platonic solids, which also have 50 faces. Their number of vertices & centres is 55, where

55 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9
= 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + 4^2 + 5^2.

55 is also the tenth Fibonacci number, revealing how the five Platonic solids manifest one of "nature's numbers" - the Fibonacci numbers:

0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,.....

The dodecahedron has 21 vertices & centres and the first four Platonic solids have 34 vertices & centres. 21 and 34 are the eighth and ninth Fibonacci numbers (counting starts from "1").

The tetrahedron, octahedron & cube 21 vertices & centres and the icosahedron has 13 vertices & centres. 13 is the seventh Fibonacci number. The tetrahedron has 5 vertices & centres. 5 is the fifth Fibonacci number.

Hence, the Platonic solids display the very numbers what determine the patterns of leaves in plants and the florets of sunflowers, etc.

How the sacred geometry of the inner form of the Tree of Life embodies the most mysterious number in physics - the number 137, whose reciprocal is approximately equal to the so-called "fine-structure constant" measuring the strength of the coupling of electrons to the electromagnetic field:

Each colored point denotes the number 1. The geometry contains 1370 points, that is, the number of points in 137 Pythagorean tetractyses.
