A Harmony of Eight…

*

The point sits at the centre of the square,

where its two diagonals intersect.

*

*

From the same intersection, another square

can be drawn at right angles to the first.

Like this, we create eight equidistant points.

*

By taking the original squares and extending all

eight sides, a new set of intersections is generated.

*

*

The new Octagon, bigger than the first,

 is perfectly derived from its archetype.

To start with, there is much misunderstanding. Hardly surprising.

In the minds of many, the “Now” sits somewhere on a line which represents a continuum between past and future. In some rudimentary way, the “Now” is regarded as the present, or, at very best, the smallest possible unit of what constitutes the present.

1If we take a moment to consider it, there is one obvious difficulty with this model. The “Now”, irrespective of how small we divide the present moment, is a place of limbo. It is…

Where be dragons?…

What links sacred sites, ancient and modern?

Are the clues all around us?

Do the keys to heaven lie hidden in the earth or are there keys to earth hidden in the heavens?

Riddles of the Night…

Hidden in plain sight.
