The Geometry Code book is ALMOST ready! Hooray!
Here’s the ‘back story’: About the time that I was finishing Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook, I was already working on another book, which is now almost ready! Rather than reinvent the wheel, I think the Preface I wrote explains how the book came about, and gives a hint as to what it is about. I’ll upload the Table of Contents soon, too. A little ‘trivia aside’:
The Kybalion, a book about the seven Hermetic Laws, and one of the primary inspirations for this book, arrived a century ago in 1912 (at least that’s date in a copy of the book we have), so it just worked out that this book celebrates The Kybalion’s centennial anniversary! You can read the (relatively short) entire Kybalion book online here or download as a pdf here. Ever since I first read it, it seemed like it needed more examples, and depth and breadth with contemporary insights, so The Geometry Code book is my response to that idea. 🙂
“Chrome Zome” jewelry still available … for Mother’s Day (or any occasion)!
Zometool Jewelry — featuring elegant chrome-plated Zome hubs — is STILL available … and ONLY here. Nancy (our resident jeweler) can make these earrings with the bottom (Swarovski 6mm) crystal in a variety of colors in addition to the pink (rose) and jet black varieties shown here, including clear, aqua, blue, light blue, midnight blue, teal, green, purple, amethyst purple, and other colors and variations.

Chains and earring hooks will vary with styles. … (read more…)

Playful Geometer’s Cosmic SpaceCrafts is a line of arts and crafts integrating Sacred Geometry into their 3D models.
Here are more examples of Playful Geometer’s artistry and a sample image:
Thanks to András, who alerted me (some months ago) to this interesting video of how triangular bits can drill square holes. Scroll down this page about the Reuleaux triangle to see a neat animation (The Reuleaux triangle rotating inside a square) showing a similar technique; note that the center of the bit must be offset from the center of the triangle for this to work.
I think I might have already (in prior bulletins) talked about Magnus Wenninger’s polyhedra and polytope models, but if you haven’t already seen this cornucopia of great models, it’s worth a look-see.
Wikipedia is such a great resource for all sorts of factual information about geometry, symbolism and more. Here are some example references (thanks to Alan Michelson):
and, of course, there are gazillions more, even just perusing polyhedra in our provincial little 3-dimensional realm. 🙂
