Sacred Geometry symbols are powerful technology

Ancient Traditions and Recent Breakthroughs

We live in a remarkable time, when deeply hidden spiritual knowledge & practices are now being publicly released. Great Spiritual Traditions around the world are making public much of their formerly secret knowledge, including in recent years the Mayan, Tibetan, Taoist and European Rosicrucian traditions. These world traditions are the caretakers of our birthright: our shared human legacy of accumulated spiritual wisdom.

Perhaps the most fundamental — and essential — part of this spiritual knowledge is to know the actual patterns, the energy blueprints, which everything in creation is based on. Everything is based on a specific pattern; knowing that pattern unlocks the ability to make full practical use of it. This is true whether speaking of patterns of higher spiritual realities, psychological and behavior patterns, energetic patterns, or actual structures manifested in the physical world.

Only through our knowing these spiritual and energetic patterns can we achieve our full potential: to become conscious, responsible creator beings in the world. In recent times, the term we use to describe these core spiritual, energetic, and physical blueprint patterns is Sacred Geometry.


I became aware of Sacred Geometry myself through an unusual route: becoming an Instructor in the U.S. Marine Corps, in the field of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare Survival in the early 1980’s. At that time I became aware that behind all the systems of modern technology, all the forces of Nature, were specific patterns which were being avidly studied by both scientists and by governments. Alongside of the usual mathematical studies of modern science, there exists a thriving sub-culture of advanced scientists studying pure structural patterns as a key to everything from Nuclear Physics to Human Biology. I was surprised to find studies commissioned by Governments, and even by NATO, that analyzed the pure pattern information of natural systems.

It became apparent to me that much of modern cutting-edge technology was coming out of these pattern studies. In Nano-technology — the new field in which human beings are now able to create any kind of matter, by creating structures at the molecular level — researchers were unsuccessful in their experiments until they studied the pure geometric patterns identified by the modern genius Buckminster Fuller. In gratitude, they named their early discoveries after him, such as the “Buckyball.”

The foundation of all Life and all Creation is this geometric language in nature, which modern science is using to tap the powers of Nature in modern technology. All modern technology is based on the twin variables of SHAPE and MATERIAL; different shapes create different energetic effects, just as different materials offer a full spectrum of different useful energy qualities (energy expresses differently through metal electrical conductors than it does through wood, for example).

One key to understand this hidden energy science of Sacred Geometry is: Shape is really a pattern of energy movement frozen in space, a pattern which nature gives a specific power. [1]

As I saw how important this geometric language of nature is for modern science, it became obvious that some spiritual traditions have known parts of this information for thousands of years. Legends of ancient high cultures such as the Egyptian Temple Science indicate how advanced — and how secret — this information was in earlier times.



After completing my Marine Corps contract, I then earned my Ph.D. in International Studies. During that time I studied the inner spiritual initiation teachings of over a dozen great world traditions, and identified the specific Sacred Geometry forms they knew and used. Some patterns were known and used by every one of these traditions, while other patterns seemed to be safeguarded by a single group. For instance, the knowledge of the power of the number 19 was considered critical in Ancient Egypt; today only some groups in esoteric Islam appear to have fully inherited this knowledge.

What was truly amazing to me, was how most of the patterns known and used in modern technology were also clearly known and used in ancient cultures. Over a period of 20 years, I was able to create Sacred Geometry courses in which I illustrate the large number of one-to-one matches between patterns used in spiritual traditions, and those used in modern technology.

One little-known example: the same geometric form known and kept very secret by the Greeks over 2500 years ago (because they said it could cause great destruction if misused) is shown in modern declassified military documents to be the exact same shape used to create the world’s first atomic bomb.

Similarly, Sacred Geometry patterns taught in the ancient schools as being related to Alchemy are the same as those found in modern technology to transmute chemical poisons to be harmless, even lethal toxins like Nerve Gas; these same alchemical patterns frozen in matter can destroy pollution, and are even present in your car’s catalytic converter.

As great as the achievements of modern technology are, they are creating pollution and death in many cases. Modern science has rediscovered many of the patterns — blueprints of creation — known to the world’s great spiritual traditions, but only in materialistic fragments; it desperately needs the holistic understanding and greater context the spiritual traditions have regarding these patterns, in order to create a technology which is healing and life-positive.

The practical energy science used in the ancient spiritual traditions could create life-giving effects in a way described today as “magic” or “miraculous”; however, to paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, ‘Magic is what we call any science we do not understand.’ This science was based on the knowledge of precise geometric energy blueprints within and behind all things, and the energy functions of these patterns.

In Ancient Times, the Initiates of this great knowledge were called THE MASTERS OF THE NET.



Sacred Geometry NetModern Physics teaches that the essence of creation is not Matter (despite what you may have learned in school); it is actually a flexible geometric energy grid behind matter, the “Matrix of Space-Time.” Matter actually warps this background space-time grid; you can find this illustrated metaphorically in many Physics texts, by a picture of a squared grid printed on a rubber sheet, distorted by the weight of a bowling ball on top of it (which represents, for instance, a planet distorting the space time matrix.)

This same energetic Matrix of Creation was known in ancient times, when it was called THE NET. Similarly to how it is shown in modern physics texts, this NET of creation was shown as a squared grid, often metaphorically as a physical Net being used to catch birds or fish inside of it. Such illustrations were extremely common in ancient Egypt.

In cultures all over the world, the spiritual knowledge of this energetic NET (the geometric matrix both behind all of creation and within every created being) was one of the highest levels of their Temple Science and Spiritual Initiations. For instance, in India it was referred to as the “Jeweled Net of Indra”, and was part of a detailed initiation system which included learning to activate the power potential (Shakti) within geometric forms in the ‘Yantra’ practice. In Egypt, the Initiates of this knowledge were known directly by the name The Masters of the Net.
