Solar System Geometry Calendars for 2015
The popular Martineau Solar System Series calendar for 2015 is still available. The models depicting averaged (circular rather than elliptical) orbit relationships are astonishingly accurate … and simple! Enjoy! 🙂
Interview with Starr Fuentes
On November 27, 2014 I was the guest of long-time fellow geometer and sacred geometry enthusiast, Starr Fuentes on her BlogTalkRadio show, Starr Gazing Radio. I shared some of the historical precedents of my interest in the subject and much more. I’m scheduled to be a presenter at her conference next June 13-14 in Hot Springs, Arkansas; stay tuned!
Great Pyramid and more – another interview with Dave Cohen
Dave Cohen (a.k.a. Davie Crockett) and I did another interview on 21 December, 2014, on his LA Talk Radio show covering interconnectedness, shared interests, the Hermetic Law of Mentalism, oneness, Platonic philosophy and geometry, metaphysics in general, our usual romp through sacred geometry – a few tangents like the timeless movie Joyeaux Noël – and an extended segment on the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt.
Fibonacci Garden: Mathematics in the Plant World – New DVD from Michael Schneider
Last month I indicated that I would do a more proper review of “Fibonacci Garden: Mathematics in the Plant World“, the latest DVD from Michael S. Schneider, author of the superb book A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science by Michael Schneider (which I often recommend as a companion to Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook.) I only had time to watch about half of it–busy month!–but what I saw and heard (earlier today) was superb, and already surpassed my high expectations. I recommend it highly. I’ll do a more detailed review in next month’s (January 2015) bulletin. Thanks for your patience. If you’re a math educator or sacred geometry enthusiast, you won’t regret getting a copy for your collection.
(2) Websites, Books, Videos, Imagery, Music and Quotes
- Khan Academy has LOTS of great tutorial info on geometry
- Chad Adams’ Extended Fibonacci Series Facebook page
- A reader’s email question about geometric constructions of an ellipse led to this MathWorld page about the ellipse, another from ‘ancient curve drawers‘, and another about the foci of ellipses.
- The image for this month’s bulletin was a screen snap from the lavishly illustrated video: The Lost Scale Extended Version – by David Sereda which explores non-distoring harmonic scales
(3) Request for Submissions
Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. I always enjoy connecting with both recent and long-time friends and colleagues and discovering new friends of friends :-)Thanks for your interest & support! 🙂 BTW, I always appreciate enthusiastic reviews on the Amazon SGDS book page, and the newer Amazon book page for The Geometry Code. It’s a good “win-win” way to cross-promote your work as well.
If you like to color with colored pencils (or other media), make 3-D fold-up geometric art, do stained glass, quilts, geometric arts and/or crafts, or just want an extensive reference/resource of geometric archetypes, patterns and essential line art, you might enjoy a copy of my first book, Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook: Universal Dimensional Patterns.
If your leanings are more metaphysical … and perhaps whimsical 🙂 … you might enjoy my second book, The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation. It was originally going to have geometry and Hermetic Laws/symbolism as a primary focus, but in 2007, a reawakened interest in the spiritual masterpiece, A Course In Miracles – thanks to Gary Renard – shifted the primary emphasis to an exploration of the two thought fundamental systems we all vacillate between, and how we can gradually shift our mind’s identity to the happy one.
