‘Geometry attempts to recapture the orderly movement from an infinite formlessness to an endless interconnected array of forms, and in recreating this mysterious passage from One to Two, it renders it symbolically visible.

From both the metaphysical and natural points of view it is false to say that in order to arrive at two, you take two ones and put them together. One only need look at the way in which a living cell becomes two. For One by definition is singular, it is Unity, therefore all inclusive. There cannot be two Ones. Unity, as the perfect symbol for God, divides itself from within itself, thus creating Two: the ‘self’ and the ‘me’ of God, so to speak; the creator unity and the created multiplicity.’

– Robert Lawlor, Sacred Geometry

‘The implicit goal of this (classical) education was to enable the mind to become a channel through which the ‘earth’ (the level of manifested form) could receive the abstract, cosmic life of the heavens. The practice of geometry was an approach to the way in which the universe is ordered and sustained. Geometric diagrams can be contemplated as still moments revealing a continuous, timeless, universal action generally hidden from our sensory perception. Thus a seemingly common mathematical activity can become a discipline for intellectual and spiritual insight.’

– Robert Lawlor, Sacred Geometry

‘All our senses function in response to the geometrical differences inherent in the stimuli they receive. When we smell a rose we are not responding to the chemical substances of its perfume, but instead to the geometry of their molecular construction. Any chemical substance that is bonded together in the same geometry as that of a rose will smell as sweet.’

– Robert Lawlor, Sacred Geometry

‘Principles for the development of a complete mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.’

AL-BAATIN: The Hidden One, Knower of the Hidden

The One who cannot be seen in the way creation can be seen. He is the One from whom nothing is hidden and who surrounds all things. He knows the inner state, yet He is veiled from the creation’s perception.
