## The Flower of Life (fourth analysis)

CHAPTER 18

**THE FLOWER OF LIFE**

** (FOURTH ANALYSIS)**

This particular way of analysing the Flower of Life is not necessarily the correct one; nonetheless, it produces scores of results. Once systemised, these results can give a part of the picture, answer part of the question: why was the Flower of Life so important (sacred) to the ancients, and why does it remain significant today? Scores of results have not been shown here, and you will be able to discern the reasons for yourselves, as I have deliberately chosen the last page to show our primitivism, or to put it mildly our ‘relativity’, despite all of the technological advances. Instead of ‘playing’, my ‘plea’ is for something rational in computer technology; and by that I don’t mean comfortable fun resulting in profit and personal poverty; I mean knowledge, the only long term path to the wealth of our generations. We do not know what that would bring, and precisely that we do not know ‘what lies behind the hill’ should start those real, advanced spirits of our generation, before they ‘cross over’ in the way of classic human destiny (as then, they will surely know but won’t be able to tell us). On the last page you will find this ‘mission impossible’ geometrically where all (including me) shall give up on this primitive geometry tool of ours (compass). Of course we cannot see from here what the purpose in all of this is, but as I have previously said, this old, ancient, sacred geometry is for future generations. We are left with only the fragments of the mosaic, steps towards the summit. With the benefit of 60 years of experience I can only tell you one thing for sure: the hill hides an even bigger hill. For now, let us continue with the Flower of Life analysis, its fourth ring intersections.

* * *

The ‘Flower of Life’ with a circumscribed circle and its 12 intersections (fourth ring).

* * *

The fourth ring’s radius intersections divide the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 48 parts.

* * *

Construct circles of the same radius as the fourth ring, out of its 12 intersections. Outside, new intersections of the ‘Flower of Life’ are created. The first outer. They divide the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’, their radius, from the peak pole into 3 parts.

* * *

The second outer – radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 16 parts.

* * *

The third outer (radius), divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 18 part (trisection code).

* * *

The fourth outer – radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 35 parts. (7 x 5) or (5 x 7) from opposing 70 parts etc.

* * *

Finally, the fifth intersections – radius that divides the circumscribed circle into 36 parts.

* * *

We did 4 out of 4. Now we move on to the third out of 12 poles of the fourth. A new constellation with a number of intersections.

* * *

The first outer – radius that divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 10 parts.

* * *

The second outer –radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 4 parts.

* * *

The third outer – radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 14 parts.

* * *

Now there are intersections inside the ‘Flower of Life’. Radius of the first divides the circumscribed circle into 24 parts.

* * *

The inner, fifth radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’, its arc, into 27 parts (3 x 9).

* * *

Let us move onto the second ring (from the centre) constellation out of the 12 intersections of the fourth ring.

* * *

The first outer – radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 4 parts.

* * *

The second outer – radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 13 equal parts.

* * *

(With this division note it started from the lower pole of the circumscribed circle to show the opposing pole is free.) The third radius – divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 21 parts. (From the peak 21 – 42; out of 4 = 84 parts etc.)

* * *

Now take the first ring constellation out of the 12 poles of the fourth. One outer intersection.

* * *

This radius divides the circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ into 36 parts. (Therefore, in some constellations the divisions are confirmed).

* * *

And now the radius of the first circle of the ‘Flower of Life’ on the arc of its circumscribed circle. It does what it does. It is what I have mentioned in the foreword. Scores of errors – disorientation. Someone else can perhaps try this for themselves. Algebra provides an easier way, radius (r-Flower) = 3r. We would need to know the size of the radius, therefore take a measure, and measuring has no place in compass and straightedge geometry.

* * * *

CHAPTER AFTERWORD

As you may have noticed, the constellation of the fifth ring of the ‘Flower of Life’ out of the 12 poles of the fourth is omitted. I deliberately left that as a ‘final’ – fifth analysis. I say ‘final’, there are other analyses, or the reverse way, meaning the constellations of the fifth on the fourth, fourth on the third, third on the second etc. This is why in the first book, I said the ‘Flower of Life’ needs a book of its own, thinking precisely of the different constellation combinations, as well as ‘products’ that would be created if we only divided using full circles, instead of limiting the divisions to one circle (circumscribed circle of the ‘Flower of Life’) with semi-circles; and especially if we were to enlarge the number of rings (their constellations). Imagine; thousands of pages step by step, using only a compass, not to mention rectilinear constructions. Having a computer program to do this would mean getting ‘over that hill’. Therefore, younger generations, there is work for you. Perhaps you can show me what is ‘behind that hill’, and I would be very pleased to be proved wrong, to find that behind that hill there isn’t another, bigger hill.
