Eight, The Number Of Infinity.

I’ve Been thinking about Geometry, Numbers, Sacred Geometry, Creational Patterns of late.

While Things like the Trinity and Hexagons have gotten lots of attention, Guess what we build everything out of?

Squares! Oh, don’t mind him, he’s crying in the corner. He desperately needs some attention. That Reminds me, Have you ever noticed what Microsoft’s Logo Symbolises? The Four Elements (can be the seasons as well.). It is just sitting there, in plain sight:

Fire (Red) , Water (Blue) Earth (Green) Air (Yellow)

So why all the attention to the Triangular Geometry then? It is as If we have been thrown a red herring.

Cmon, People! Do We Live In Triangles? Even The Pyramids at Giza have 8 sides! (long story)

4

NO! We Live In Squares. Not Hexagons either. Actually, a hexagon is imbalanced, Isn’t it? The Sides have more points than the top and bottom.

Also, I find it Extremely difficult to draw. It isn’t natural for me. like, Why do it that way? it just feels wrong. just a feeling, really.

Are Squares Exciting? Interesting? Of Course Not! but honestly, Something About The Star of David/Hexagram feel ‘off’ somehow.)

The Octagram just is. I can lose myself in it. I’ve got no idea about a septagram though (7). You know, Going off on your own is exhausting. No sources to cite, no Test to pass. Liberating, But tiring.

Maybe someone reading this knows. It would certainly be appreciated. 🙂

Anyway, Now that’s out of the Way, This is what I wanted to talk about. eight. or 8. Unlike other numbers, It is complete, closed. Finished. actually, the more I think about the number sequence the more I see them moving towards that shape progressively. looping around themselves more and more.

I never really thought about it much before. And Honestly, 60 Degree Angles? 45 degrees is where it’s at. always has been. As I just said, Look around you! There is the proof! you are reading this in a electronic box, sitting in a giant cube, sitting on a rectangular road!

Also, in music, you have octaves.

Now that I’ve said it, it seems obvious. Its that moment when the penny drops, and you suddenly get it. I’m Reminded of one occasion where a friend pointed out that the “rectangular blob” monument outside the library was in fact, A suitcase. I’ll never forgive them for it!

I liked it better when It was just a blob. Still, there is no turning back once you see, is there? Still, Some things are better left for people to find on their own, lest it be abused by the wrong people.

(Hex)6 is 3+3, Tri and Tri. Three is an odd number. inverted on itself. Even now. But still odd, but cancelled out by each other. 8, on the other hand is 2+2+2+2 or 4+4. Still even all the way through.

Thanks for reading.
