1) Events: Interviews, Seminars, Workshops, Classes, Exhibits

Next weekend (27Feb2009-1Mar2009) I'll be in San Francisco at the ACIM Conference
"A Blessing From The Abundance Of Our Grandeur" with fellow students of A Course In Miracles and
folks liks Gary Renard, Tom & Linda Carpenter, Nouk Sanchez & Tomas Vieira. I'm looking forward
to meeting many 'new' friends!

I've uploaded the hour-long audio archive (mp3) of my recent interview with Lance White, the "Zany Mystic"
which originally aired on his BBS radio show, Saturday, February 7, 2009 7-8PM PST. Check it out! We
had a lot of fun covering everything from quantum physics to Hermetic Laws and sacred geometry to
pragmatic metaphysics.

All 12 of my "Martineau Solar System Series" giclée prints are STILL on exhibit until March 10, 2009
at Pangea restaurant, 272 E. Main Street, Ashland, Oregon. Pangea is a favorite place to get a healthy,
delicious meal! This is quick 5-week exhibit, so check it out ASAP!

From 4 Apr. - 2 May. 2009, the same "Martineau Solar System Series" giclée print exhibit will move to
the Eagle Point Library here in (you guessed it!) Eagle Point, Oregon, my home town.

If you are interested in sacred geometry workshops in the Medford, Oregon area please let me know!
Here's my list of current and past events.


2) New Products, Articles and Tutorials

The Seventh Hermetic Law (Generation or Gender) ... is the topic for my most recent article on the
Spirit of Ma'at website. This series of articles contains brief excerpts from my upcoming book,
The Geometry Code. I've listed the articles in this series on my Resources page,
as well as my Events page.

Next installment of the "beginner's corner":
Here's a stereogram from page 246 of SGDS:
This one has 6 stellated dodecahedra (12-sided shapes with
pentagonal pyramids on each face) which look like this (without the color):

To view this, gently focus a few inches PAST the page or screen (what a great metaphysical metaphor
for transcending the limitations of the dimensions we appear to be in!) until the 3D image 'pops out' of
the 2D page. This should be easier when the two black dots at the top of the page overlap, giving the
appearance of 3 dots, equally spaced. Enjoy! :-)

Also, check out the comments below about the movie Coraline, since we're on a 3D from 2D media theme,
as well as Libby's stereograms of a octahedron-tetrahedron-space-lattice.
We're not limited to just these few dimensions, and, like Flatlanders, often make way too many assumptions
about our 'reality' based on way too little information! What a great symbol for this principle! :-)


3) Recent Introductions ... (Still Fairly) New :-)

Jazz up your video edits: Geometric Video Patterns (Gradient Wipe Transition Images) - great for Final Cut Pro!


4) Website(s) of Interest

Long-time geometry colleague Libby M. has a couple of wonderful new 3D stereograms of
vector matrix equilibrium models... After you uncross your eyes looking at these, if you still want
more stereographic artistry, visit your local theater to watch Coraline; a clever and fun film that
once again reminds us not to take appearances - even if they seem to jump out at you! - too seriously. :-)

Geometric Sculpture by George W. Hart - Thanks to Elias for reminding me of how many neat models
he has on this site!

Thanks to Luke G. for the link to this
neat round table that does a clever hexagonal transformation to expand and contract.

Here's some neat oscilloscope videos that pick up (and go way beyond) where I was in
my high school electronics class (high to the alumni of Livermore High School! :-) hooking up
every available lab oscillator to make exotic, dynamic, geometric Lissajous patterns -
Thanks to Judy Lynne Cole (our 2007 contest winner) for send these links of her work:
video1 - video2 - video3 - video4 - video5

Thanks to Ieoie of the Netherlands for sending a nice YouTube clip of a geometric progression through dimensions.

Reviewing connections to friends online, I re-discovered this interview, videotaped by Alan Gutierrez
that I did with Mark Amaru Pinkham a few years ago about the Templars and related historical info.


5) Book(s) of Interest

Sacred Number by the elusive Miranda Lundy ... This is a splendid excursion into the cultural precendents
for holding numbers in mystical esteem, with a wealth of imaginative directions to explore. A fine addition
to John Martineau's superb Wooden Book series.

6) Movie(s) of Interest

Slumdog Millionaire! The Academy Awards picked a great one this year and we couldn't agree more!
My internal translation (I love mnemonic devices that remind me of transpersonal non-duality!) for the
catchy Bollywood theme music at the end (Jai Ho) is JAFO :-) Highly recommended film!


7) Music of Interest

How about the "Jai Ho" theme song from the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack! Other favorites from
this movie include Latika's Theme, and O...Saya and Dreams on Fire. See the Movie of the month above.


8) Affiliate(s) of the Month - StudioPress

StudioPress (formerly Revolution2) offers superbly designed, easy-to-use (and cusotmize)
professional WordPress templates. Many of our blogs (such as,
and client blogs (such as use these excellent, well-supported themes.


9) Quote(s) of the Month

Thanks to Steven M. for directing me to the first two quotes:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

- Sonnet 116, William Shakespeare

Wonder not then, what God for you saw good.
If I refuse not, but convert, as you,
To proper substance; time may come when men
With Angels may participate, and find
No inconvenient Diet, nor too light Fare:
And from these corporal nutriments perhaps
Your bodies may at last turn all to Spirit
Improv'd by tract of time, and wing'd ascend
Ethereal, as we, or may at choice
Here or in Heav'nly Paradises dwell.

- John Milton - Paradise Lost

No amount of work on the personality can free us.
We must learn to change our mind at a level beneath personality to open to the
Essential States and Highest Qualities of our True Nature.

- A.H. Almaas


10) Image(s) of the Month
Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus Per Martineau

This image of "Earth and Mars Per Martineau" shows icosahedral geometry that relates the planets
Earth and Mars: 2 concentric spheres (whose bisecting planes represent the orbits of the two planets)
are defined by a sphere that just wraps around (circumscribes) the 12 outer points of an icosahedron
(Mars) and the sphere that passes through the centers of those same 12 spheres (Earth.) ... highly accurate.

These patterns are similar to hundreds of patterns found in SGDS.


11) 2009 (now annual) multimedia CONTEST!

I've decided to make the Sacred Geometry Multimedia Contest an annual event, so you NOW have
until Dec. 31, 2009 to send me entries (inspired by Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook, or other
images or ideas on the site) to win a free GeometryCode screensaver and eBooklet!


12) Request for Submissions

If you would like to stay connected and network with kindred souls online, check out
LinkedIn. I'm enjoying connecting with both recent and long-time friends and colleagues
and discovering new friends of friends (and soon friends of friends of friends... :-)

As always, please let me know how I can support you. Please send me any interesting items about
sacred geometry or related interests (since everything is interrelated!
Thanks for your interest & support! :-)
