# BASIC ELEMENTS OF ANCIENT GEOMETRY (extracted from “Introduction to Sacred Geometry” by B. Rawles

Estándar

In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form.

We will analyze some of the main elements and figures

The Sphere

This is one of the simplest and most perfect of forms. All points on the surface are equally accessible and regarded by the center from which all originate.

The Circle

The circle is a two-dimensional shadow of the sphere, and shares with it the perfection of its simplicity.

The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, Pi, is the original transcendental and irrational number. (Pi equals about 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937511…)

The essence of the circle exists in a dimension that transcends the linear rationality that it contains.

The Point

At the center of a circle or a sphere is always an infinitesimal point. The point needs no dimension, yet embraces all dimension.
