About Perspective

Introduction When we Look with our Eyes and not with our Mind we can See that Space looks very different from what we Think it is. In Our Space Parallel Lines meet at Infinity. Around 1400 during the Renaissance Painters started to look at Space with their own Eyes and discovered the Rules of Perspective Drawing. Between 1600-1800 Perspective Theory changed from a Theory of Art to a Theory of Mathematics called Projective Geometry. It took 400 Years before a few Mathematicians realized that Projective Geometry was the Foundation of Mathematics and it took another 100 years before Projective Geometry started to … Continue reading About Perspective

About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

The first part of this Blog is about the Triangular numbers, related to the Number 3, the Holy Trinity. The second part shows that Pascal’s Triangle (called Meru’s Mountain in Mystics), the Binomial Expansion,  contains every Possible Mystical Number Pattern (including the Triangular Numbers) you can Imagine. Pascal Triangle also shows that our Universe is a combinatorial miracle. It explores every possibility, is always in balance, expands and moves back to the beginning which is and was the Void, the Empty Set, the merge of Every Paradox, that is Possible. About Mystical Number-Patterns The Sēpher Yəṣîrâh (Book of Formation or Book … Continue reading About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

About the Sum of Things

The Lo Shu is a Chinese Model for Time and was used to design Cities, Temples, Cycles and Calendars. The Lo Shu is a 3×3 Magic Square created by Fu Xi, the Founder of Chinese Civilization.

A City is an Organism

The System of Life is growing in size and in complexity, and so do the infrastructures sustaining it. In 2008 the point was reached where more than 50% of the world population lives in cities. That percentage is growing. By 2030, over 60% of the world’s population – nearly five billion people – will be living in urban area. The System of Life is generating Super Organisms and the City is one of them. Urbanization is only a relatively recent phenomenon. As far as we now know urbanization started in Mesopotamia around 4000 – 3500 BC. For the Ancient Mesopotamians, … Continue reading A City is an Organism

Good and Bad are Context Dependent. Look at this little Story: A Chinese farmer awoke one morning to find a horse grazing in one of his fields. … Continue reading About the Good, the Bad and the Nothing

About Understanding Mathematics

When I was a student I made some money by helping young people to understand Mathematics. I Listened to the way they tried to Solve the Puzzles their Teachers gave them and tried to find out their Personal Way of Reasoning.  When I found their reasoning problem I gave them a new Way to Think. This approach was very effective. Sometimes I just needed one hour and the highly frustrated pupil transformed into a Lover of Mathematics. They saw that Mathematics is the Art of Beauty and Harmony. The main problem most of these pupils had was the Why-Question. They wanted to know … Continue reading About Understanding Mathematics

About Magic and the Memory Palace

In the 5th century AD, Martianus Capella defined the Seven Liberal Arts: Grammar, Dialectic, Rhetoric, Geometry, Arithmetic, Astronomy, and (Musical) Harmony. The System of Capella became the model of the Medieval University. The term liberal means “appropriate for free men“.  The Liberal Arts represented the kinds of skills and general knowledge needed by the Elite. The Servile Arts represented Specialized Tradesman Skills and knowledge needed by persons who were employed or owned by the Elite. The Number Seven was not taken by Accident. This number represented the Seven Days of the Week, the Seven Spheres, the  Seven Planets, the Seven Notes and the … Continue reading About Magic and the Memory Palace

The teachings of Ancient Civilizations are often Self-Referential. The same knowledge is showed on many levels. What we see with our Senses is an Illusion. Behind this Illusion lies a deeper structure. The last and deepest level of the ancient teachings is always related to Numbers, Geometry and the Trinity. This blog is about one of the most important geometric structures of the Trinity called the Sri Yantra. In the ancient teachings a problem is defined and the teacher gives a clue how to solve the problem. If the pupil has solved a problem he is able to move to … Continue reading About Plato and Harmony

About Chaos

Humans are desperately trying to preserve their Identity. To do this they create Order. Behind every Order is non-Order, Chaos, the creative, destructive, force. If the Human Order is gone, psychologists, try to Unite the broken pieces of the chaotic Personality. If the Banking System is extremely volatile Economists believe they are able to repair the System. If the Ecology is chaotic Biologists are doing the same. All of them believe they found a way to transform Chaos into Order. Creating Chaos is not very difficult. One act of a small group of terrorists almost destroys the System of Society … Continue reading About Chaos

Why God is a Topologist

Sometimes I am getting very frustrated when I read spiritual books. I am getting frustrated because those books are a very complicated mixture of many other books that are also very complicated mixtures of other books. The most complicated spiritual books are the books that use mathematical or physical theories to proof they are Right. The main reason is of course that mathematics and physics is complicated stuff to understand. Mathematics contains the essence of Physics. You have to understand a little bit of mathematics to understand elementary Physics. The essence of Mathematics is Geometry. When you understand Geometry the … Continue reading Why God is a Topologist
