I love the holidays :)

We usually celebrate the basic 8 to different extents, there's always food involved :) We also celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July. Sometimes Memorial day and Labor day. Birthdays.
We both also celebrate some other holidays or observations that are more personal, and have a small general altar set up in our bedroom to burn incense or do whatever the occasion calls for. Kind of a prayer altar.

I haven't celebrated holidays for years, I swore off Christmas (other than going to my family's parties) because the consumerism part of it really got to me for a while there.  I do however have more "fluid" days where I happen to spend it in a celebratory way, for no other reason than I woke up and felt like that was the kind of day it was.

However, Halloween /Samhain is my favorite and even if I don't do anything myself for the holiday I do enjoy it :)   I think I honestly enjoy the whole month of October just because I like that time of year so much.

If I had something witty to say, my signature would be a lot funnier.

Hi everyone .I just wanted to post about Ganesh Chaturthi .

This year it falls on Sept 19th .
That's this Wednesday .

It is the celebration of the birth of the great Ganesh .

If anyone has an ashram near them (ashram is an Indian temple) ,you might want to go by,and see if there are any celebrations going on this Wednesday.
The ashram by me,is actually dedicated to Lord Ganesh ,so its a huge deal there ,for days.
They have a statue of him ,that is only out on Chaturthi ,and its life size,and diamond encrusted .real diamonds.
It's absolutely breath taking.
They do pujas the entire ten days (pujas are blessings),and give out free vegetarian food,to all comers,that is delicious !
Theres music and mantras ,and special prayer rooms for paritioners .

I am usually one of the only white people that goes . I mean Its packed,and you may see 1-2 non hindus ,in a 2 hour time frame.
I get odd looks,but I dont care.
Its an awesome experience .
I highly recommend it.


Miss me?

Hi Simbi Laveau,

My first love was always Sacred Geometry, Phi, Golden Ratio, Pentacles, Dodecahedrons and Fifth Element stuff, i'm often drawing on the mysteries of 72 degrees, a few drawings below:-

Thank you monk. I admittedly ,do not know a lot about sacred geometry . I do have a pendant made using it . The artist specializes in special stones,and sacred geometry and sacred times of day .
He uses many stones that call to me.

Hi Simbi,

I have studied sacred geometry for nearly all my life, i love fractals and 1.618, it is the best evidence that there is intelligence in the Universe, there is a big debate in physics circles at the moment about the Universe being a Dodecahedron, link below:-

http://physicsworld....-a-dodecahedron

Through long study i have found some secrets out about a master key fractal shape, i'll show my research if you like, obviously i wouldn't impose on your thread without asking, but it is fascinating!

Isn't it ...its very time intensive,and he uses no glues. It's all done with sacred geometry in the wire wraps. If you look at other wraps,the difference is very dramatic .

I've had my pendant for over five years,and its as good as new
.
I think its quite affordable .
I wanted him to make me a custom pendant,with modlavite,phenacite,petalite,and lek-lai.
I have a piece of leklai ,and many raw moldavites and phenacite . Leklai is kind of heavy though,so I changed my mind .
Leklai is revered by Thai Buddhists mostly ,and practitioners of Thai magick,Leeak.
I do know some Chinese Buddhists that have pieces though.
My piece is small,and from Thailand .
Leklai,allegedly comes from left over magick and deep meditative vibrations ,that have,well condensed ,for lack of a better term .
The stuff does change shape and size .Its quite ,interesting....
Something told me It shouldnt be a pendant though .

Hi Simbi,

Sacred Geometry is visual mathematic, please don't think i'm being patronizing if i say don't get involved in number crunching, but numbers can be shown on graphs that are visual, i'm going to start slowly with how the universe uses sacred geometry, one of the basic shapes in this is called the Vesica Piscis, link below:-

http://en.wikipedia....i/Vesica_piscis

To see it in the universe, the Hourglass Nebula is a good example, link below:-

http://en.wikipedia....ourglass_Nebula

It is good that you are an astrologer for you know that "Retrograde" motion of the planets is an optical illusion, where planets appear on Earth to make loops in orbit, a good example would be Venus that appears to show a pentacle, rose or heart during a eight year cycle, link below:-

http://www.skyscript.../venusrose.html

The Universe is apt to make a shape called a Logarithmic Spiral, as shown below with the Nautilus shell, weather patterns and Spiral Galaxies, link below:-

http://en.wikipedia....arithmic_spiral

This can also be called the Golden Spiral or the Fibonacci Series, which is just creating a graph by number crunching, very similiar to Sacred Geometry, link below:-

http://library.think...html?tql-iframe

Now if we connect the Golden Spiral to it's mirror image we get a shape that looks like an Apple or a cardioid in geometry, picture on link below:-

http://2012forum.com...=4647&mode=view

Are you following me so far, please ask questions, as i follow through with threads you will see that this apple or heart shape is crucial to getting to a master key shape, that all other shapes will fit into like a glove!

Hi Simbi,

The link you left about Aether Circuits.com will give you a clue with the word Aether, so now we have to go back to Plato and Platonic Solids, however Plato didn't invent them, as they appeared long before him, please scroll down to "HISTORY" on link below, and read third paragraph that mentions the fifth Platonic Solid, that he thought the Dodecahedron was "The god used for arranging the heavens, Aristotle added that this was the "The Fifth Element or AETHER".

http://en.wikipedia..../Platonic_solid

A good book to get hold of would be Mario Livio, The Golden Ratio: The Story of Phi, the World's most astonishing Number, links below:-

http://en.wikipedia....iki/Mario_Livio

If you scroll down link below to the "Golden Ratio" it will tell you about the book:-

http://www.mariolivi...by-mario-livio/

So i'm saying that there is proof that god, or gods exists by math!  In nature we have a number of shapes that confirm intelligence in the Cosmos!

Leonardo da Vinci had the right idea, link below:-

http://en.wikipedia....i/Vitruvian_Man

So my journey now is going to the Mandelbrot Set and the "Thumbprint of God" and fractals, can you see that "Apple Cardioid shape????"  Link below:-

http://www.misterx.c...int_of_God.html

Other links to Mandlebrot set below:-

http://en.wikipedia..../Mandelbrot_set

http://en.wikipedia....delbrot_set.jpg

I'll leave this section with a video about the Divine Proportion and Phi, link below:-

Hi Simbi,

I know this is heavy stuff, so as a break, i thought i would show an astrology visual joke, i don't know if you use Chiron in your charts, but you must know of it, being a comet like a planetoid that was discovered in 1977, astrologers give it the myth of "The wounded Healer", link below:-

http://www.astrology...com/chiron.html

Now if you were on Chiron watching the orbit pattern of Uranus by retrograde motion, you could plot this on a graph, and it gives a very funny shape although slightly rude so forgive me!

I have a caption to picture of orbit on link below, it is very funny and always makes me giggle!!

"Hard Working Chiron has "piles" of healing to do for poor old Uranus, what a pain in the BUTT!!!

http://2012forum.com...=4635&mode=view

Below can be found other information on the orbit pattern of Venus, forget the Lucifer reference:-

http://pentaclepower.../pentagram.html

http://uk.answers.ya...13060634AAgKaPz

Link below to Golden Ratio discovered in a quantum world:-

http://esciencenews....a.quantum.world

On the next thread section i will show how Phi, Pentagons, Pentacles, Dodecahedron, Golden Rectangle, Golden Spiral and Mandelbrot set fit into one master key shape.

Hi Simbi,

Getting near the end now, one link below that is interesting:-



Now the Mandelbrot Set is basically a Cardioid with a small circle on the outside, but in sacred Geometry i have to show this on the inside as a CARDIOID ENVELOPE, please scroll down link to second diagram:-

http://mathworld.wol...m/Cardioid.html

However it must have the right number of swirling circles that cross the inner circle at ten points, larger pictures are below:-

http://2012forum.com...=4638&mode=view

http://2012forum.com...=4646&mode=view

Once you can fit 2 opposite pentagons in diagram, the 3D dodecahedron will appear in centre, link below:-

http://2012forum.com...=4648&mode=view

Thus all fractal shapes fit into master key shape being an Envelope Cardioid as shown below, which is a probable Heart Chakra, this is fascinating!

http://2012forum.com...=4652&mode=view

Any Questions?

This is the last part of my research, however i will answer questions if you aren't sure what i'm talking about.   The Guy on link below is a bit patronizing but hopefully you can understand him about Chaos Theory:-



A visual joke about Chaos Theory below:-



And back to The Golden Ratio on link below:-

Have you worked out yet why The Pentagon is the shape it is?
