This is a May 2011 post by Jon Rappoport, which WordPress linked to his most recent post about Chaos and Sacred Geometry. I felt led to post this one today, though, as I’ve had a series of back and forth emails with someone wanting me to post some of their Sacred Geometry articles on my blog. For a variety of reasons, I just couldn’t bring myself to do so. I could easily recognize some of those reasons, but this synchronous stumbling upon Jon’s old post articulates more of the undercurrents I felt.
I have studied Sacred Geometry, and it does have its place; however, as an artist, I have never been able simply to copy the so-called Sacred Geometric forms. I always want to tweak them, shift them, turn them slightly off center. Replicating a pre-existing form is certainly a kind of craft, but I prefer Creation over replication. It was this concept that I couldn’t swallow in the articles this person asked me to post — the idea that Sacred Geometry is the required way forward. I disagree. Nature, though it has its own order, is riotously unruly left to its own devices. I do believe returning to Nature will help us move forward, but not because Nature is some static, unalterable thing. Rather, because Nature is endlessly adaptable. Nature riffs on forms and were we to observe without our preconceptions, we would likely find much more variety than currently meets the scientific/spiritual eyes.
Anyway, food for thought … and a nice answer to my “Why do I feel SO resistant to posting that article?” Well, then. It comes down to the same reason I prefer writing novels to academic theory about novels. One’s alive. The other, a dissection.

MAY 15, 2011. You could say the universe was built with an option switch.
Option One: It can be approached as a series of layers, pattern hidden beneath pattern, shape within shape, message under message, code inside code. Starting from any point of reference, you can work your way in, until you reach the core.
At the center is a shape or energy or mystery that generates the whole.
At every step of the exploration, every piece of code suggests the whole.
Many harmonious, mathematically pure patterns emerged on the way to the core, intimating an intrinsic…
