## The “Flower Of Life“ (Fourth Declination)

CHAPTER 28

** THE „FLOWER OF LIFE“**

** (FOURTH DECLINATION)**

Some more time is absolutely essential for us human beings to comprehend the geometrical essence of a solitary point in space, and we refer to it as the starting point, or the center or nucleus; it is the beginning and the end (the reflection) of all that is “ongoing” outside of it. Based on this ancient spherical geometry or call it simply geometry, we will gradually begin to understand it, and this also goes for the other branches of natural science in which we still roam due to our old habitual perceptions from which vague postulates arise, issues that then again impart faulty results or even impossibilities. I do not claim that it is easy to comprehend how a solitary point in space contains such an enormous opus of the universe, and I realize that even after this chapter things will not be much less clouded, but in the following chapter the door will be left “ajar” to a new, more exact perception although it might seem strange since it is a return to a many times repeated system of sectioning. This does not mean that we are abandoning spherical “angelical” geometry, but only that we are approaching a new level that our mind, already somewhat exhausted by the vast quantities of information gathered in the course of the centuries, will be able to grasp once we “separate the wheat from the chaff” ; information that is both a blessing and a malediction of our civilization, our civilization of duplicity. I’m certain that I never could have achieved what I have done so far on this “geometry path” were it not for the existence of the invisible something or somebody here beside me who lifts me when I’m down and warns me when I begin to lose my sense of equilibrium (for example, spill something or drop something, hurt myself or draw something wrong – and then I react like men do – with a juicy curse – a normal human habit of ours, you must agree). I’m sure such a reaction brings a scornful smile to the face of the “unknown entity” and I’m cocksure that our human responses are not unknowns to him. Perhaps the philosophers of various nations would say that this entity is our alter ego. I admit that I view this from another aspect, once again establishing my perception on the biblical Old Testament legend of Tobit in which the “invisible” archangel Raphael (my favorite archangel) well known in medical circles is himself one of the seven others standing before him. He is an archangel of incredible tenderness or I would say of “spiritual calmness”, and thus he spoke to me on his departure in not many words, telling me everything. Frankly speaking, whenever I recall this in light of our present-day reality, my entire being mourns and, like a real macho, I manage not to shed tears. May my readers not hold it against me, but regardless of the ever-increasing number of “historical personalities and groups”, or call them whatever you like, I would always want to be a “Raphaelite” if such a group existed.

However, let’s get back to our geometry, respectively to our last declination of the “Flower of Life. It might be a strange coincidence but Edward F. Malkowski enticed my interest in the “Flower of Life” with his explorations and drawings that I found in his book “Before the Pharoahs”. He found it in Abidos, Egypt at Oserion, an ancient temple, and somewhere else I read that Oserion was a health resort. What a coincidence! The word Abidos, when slightly permuted = bi soda (bicarbonate of soda) that is known in folk medicine (and in modern times confirmed) as a medicament for treatment of skin diseases and excessive gastritis, or heartburn, as people call it, and they say that it is also a pre-symptom of a possible heart attack. Harmless bicarbonate immediately stops heartburn, something I have often tried myself. Anyway, what a coincidence!

Now here we come to the fourth declination of the “Flower of Life”.

* * *

The hexagonal division of the fifth, circumscribed, ring of the “flower of life” intersects the fourth ring of the “flower of life”. As a starting point (radius) we take the first midpoint of the fourth ring on the right next to the first divisional passage of the fifth ring. That radius divides the fourth ring into 24 parts, and points of intersections of said division are its semicircles (fourth ring in 8 parts)

* * *

If the same procedure is repeated with full circles then the radius of the intersection points of the circles corroborate the division of the fourth ring into 24 parts, forming sequences of new intersection points inside the fourth ring (and surely outside – not depicted), the testing of which I leave to others.

* * *

Nevertheless one inside intersection point of the 24-part division of the fourth ring attracted my attention (the second one from the edge – of the fourth ring). That radius divides the fourth ring into 33 parts (3 x 11) – a very essential angular division.

* * *

Thereafter, the third points of intersection on the fourth ring, their divisions into 24 parts. That radius divides the fourth ring into 54 parts (9 x 6), also an essential angular division.

* * *

The following divisional radiuses of the fourth ring into 24 parts bring forth more and more divisional partitions, which once again imparts a feeling of resignation in me …

* * *

… that arises from a banal reason: the primitiveness of our dividing tools or instruments (the compass). It appears that such divisions still have to wait for some other generations with a different kind of “tool” (an electronic compass).

* * *

Now let us take the second right-sided midpoint of the fourth ring – the first passage of the fifth ring division of the “flower of life” into six parts. That radius divides the fourth ring into 48 parts.

* * *

And the radius, second midpoint – second passage of the hexagonal division of the fifth ring divides the fourth ring into 8 parts.

* * *

And the radius of the second midpoint of the fourth ring of the third passage of the fifth ring division onto 6 parts divides the fourth ring into 26 parts (2 x 13), which is also an important division (depicting 13 and 6.5 parts). The intersection points of the division into 26 parts are not analyzed…

* * *

… but instead let’s boil down the fourth ring into one pole (i.e. into 6) rectilinearly, in order to see the relationship. The rectilinear radius peak pole of the fourth ring, the second passage of the fifth ring division into 6 parts, divides the arc of the fourth ring into 32 parts.

* * *

Peak rectilinear pole, second passage, divisions of fifth ring. This radius divides the fourth ring into 45 parts (9 x 5)

* * *

We will now analyze the relatedness of the fourth ring. The connectedness of the rectilinear peak pole and part of the points of intersection occurring on it with the formation of the “flower of life” (self-analysis of the fourth ring)

* * *

Third midpoint away from the peak pole – radius divides the fourth ring into 41 parts.

* * *

Second midpoint – peak rectilinear pole. Radius divides fourth ring into 35 parts (7 x 5)

* * *

Third radius – peak rectilinear pole – again the third. Here I want to warn readers that a small divisional shift brings forth a diversity of results, namely it is indispensable to draw recurrently until the correct radius and corresponding angle result is “comprehended”.

* * *

Here rectilinear drawing (division) comes to our aid because it renders the concordance or uniformity of division such as in the case of fourth midpoints – 68 (4 x 17)

* * *

And as a conclusion to the declinations we note: a twelve-section division with its radius of the fourth ring and a six-section division of the fifth ring that come together on the rim of divisional circles of the basic circle, calling attention thereby to a radius.

* * *

That radius divides the first ring of the “flower of life”, from its peak pole into 9 parts (from its subtended pole it would be 18 parts, that is to say, the first eighteen-sided star-shaped polygon.

* * * *

AFTERWORD TO THE DECLINATION

Regretfully, in this declination we have also come upon a series of problems, starting with the tool problem (the compass) to our not drawing in accordance with the principles of ancient geometry, but with semicircles (instead of full circles) so that we cannot say anything other than that this is only a superficial declination but it brings us an insight into the manners of how angle results in ancient geometry can be acquired, and for all that we have dealt with just one ancient element (the “flower of life” artifact). And how many artifacts of a geometrical nature are there worldwide? I am certain that all this sheds some light and order to the branch of geometry if one follows (or will follow) the values of all this brought to the public view of this civilization of ours (or perhaps of some future civilization as I entitled in the foreword to the First Book)). I have no material or financial benefits from any of this, nothing at all. On the contrary I am obliged to invest the least possible amount for the translation into English (thanks to my friend and excellent translator – Fred, for his willingness to work for a minimal compensation) and thanks for the computer processing (since I’m a layman in this field) to my friend Slim, who also accepts to work for a minimal financial compensation. Yet in spite of all this, I am satisfied to see that not only are individual viewers/readers showing interest in geometry, but also a number of schools and universities around the world, especially in the United States where my work has “caught” their eye, which makes me happy as every creator would be especially when this interest is in the USA. No matter how many times others have tried to convince me that the United States are not what they used to be I still believe, regardless of the present state of affairs, in the “American dream”, where novelties are not ruled out, but are seriously subjected to verification. The argument in favor of this is the number of American Nobel prize winners in the domain of natural science in America itself or by means of American support. My reality in my sixty-plus years of age is what it is, but encouraged by this work of mine I can at least dream my American dream.
