Tripartite includes three thematically-interconnected books in one binding that is more than the sum of its parts. Seeing the aesthetically-rich color illustrations and reading all three texts can induce novel whole-brained insights. The divine proportion is the golden thread running throughout Tripartite, guiding seekers on their own paths through the cosmic labyrinth.
The cover suggests another tripartite—a Body:House:Cosmos homology that is at the core of all sacred traditions. Here we see it take the form of the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid and the Nebula, each representing 33.3% of the whole.
Thus, Eliade structures the anthropo-cosmic homology, Body:House:Cosmos. Through the phenomenon of cosmocization…the human becomes microcosm of the house or temple, just as the house or temple becomes microcosm of the cosmos. The inverse is true as well: the cosmos is macrocosm to the house, the house is macrocosm to the human, and the human is, therefore, in profound interrelationship with the cosmos. –The Ka’bah: Rhythms of Culture, Faith and Physiology by Beverly White Spicer
Illustrations from the Creator of Secrets In Plain Sight
This inspiring treasury features 66 full-color illustrations by the creator of the Secrets In Plain Sight video series. Onstott’s technical mastery of both vector and raster software combined with his skill in pattern recognition comes across in the many educational and thought-provoking conceptual illustrations included here. The images have a mysterious beauty that invites contemplation, philosophical inquiry and meditation; they will inspire you to perceive parallels between the universe outside of you and the universe within.
A third of the illustrations feature the metrological wonders encoded in the Great Pyramid of Giza. You will enjoy Onstott’s discoveries connecting everything from the cell to the human body, ancient temples, sacred sites, modern architecture, the Nile, art, math, physics, sport, religion, non-duality, the Sun and the planets, the star Sirius and the distance to the center of our galaxy.
Art lovers, mathematicians, philosophers and anyone with an appreciation for imaginative visual storytelling will treasure this volume’s illustrations and written descriptions.
The Divine Proportion
An astonishing full-color view of the proportion that simultaneously patterns structures as small as DNA and as large as galaxies. This collection of illustrations will take you on an epic journey exploring the golden ratio in mathematics, geometry, music, philosophy, psychology, art, archaeology, architecture, molecular biology, plant morphology, human physiology, geography, physics and astronomy.
For those who are interested in acquiring knowledge of nature’s continuous geometric proportions, self-similarities and primordial spirals encoded in and found throughout this Universe, this book is a must have. With a remarkable collection of illustrations, Scott Onstott introduces you to the divine proportion pervasive in all fields of science, music and ancient history from the divine proportions at the atomic scale, to our galaxy and the pyramids of Egypt. Thus, enhancing your ability to perceive nature’s golden proportions. A great collection with powerful insights. -Adam Dorfman, author of Conceptual Revolutions in Science
Secrets In Plain Sight
Leonardo da Vinci
Discovering precise encoding in the majority of Leonardo’s art, the author’s insightful analysis reveals the existence of a cosmic ordering principle – or secret science – in Da Vinci’s art.
“People resonate powerfully with Da Vinci’s art because our DNA, the human body, and even the earth-moon system share the same mathematical ordering principle,” says Onstott, who adds that Da Vinci encoded his most important secrets in plain sight, where they have been overlooked for centuries.
Leonardo’s secret pointing with the divine proportion’s divisions to physical and illuminated third-eyes suggests he saw the divine not just in a transcendent heaven, but immanently in the human body and in the world.
Da Vinci’s paintings and drawings, although few in number, are the most visited, most written about and most valuable art in the world. Onstott explores whether this mass appeal could be due to Da Vinci’s practice of encoding a secret science, or self-similar proportion, into his works, and concludes that the secret science works because it is part of us, no matter whether we are conscious of it or not.
There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, and those who do not see. –Leonardo da Vinci
Experience some unplugged time coloring and contemplating Geometra’s collection of 53 drawings, which includes geometric art, cathedral and temple plans, sacred geometry, optical illusions, crop circles, mathematical curiosities, Platonic solids and more.
Well-known geometer Scott Onstott designed this book to be suitable for adults and older children. The black and white drawings are printed on one side of the page so you can create your own original color art pieces without bleed-through using pencils or fine tipped markers.
I think the universe is pure geometry – basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time. -Antony Garrett Lisi, physicist
