Did you ever see the Magic Eye books that show a picture, but when you stare at it long enough, it becomes something completely different?
To the naked eye, this is merely a picture of a blue, green and purple pattern. If you move the picture closer to your nose and almost look “cross-eyed” at it, you’ll see a 3-D shape take form within the picture? What do you see? The answer is at the bottom of this article.
The Flower of Life (FOL) is a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
The Flower of Life symbol is over six thousand years old. Throughout human history, philosophers, artists, and architects around the world have known this symbol for its perfect form, proportion, and harmony.
Stare at one point on this picture for thirty seconds, then immediately look at a blank wall or piece of white paper. You will see a negative afterimage. In the afterimage, the colors of the United States flag will be corrected.
There are many spiritual beliefs associated with the FOL; for example, depictions of the five Platonic Solids are found within the symbol of Metatron's Cube, which may be derived from the FOL pattern. These platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs.
Another notable example of that which may be derived from the FOL is the Tree of Life. This has been an important symbol of sacred geometry for many people from various religious backgrounds. Particularly, the teachings of the Kabbalah have dealt intricately with the Tree of Life.
What if the picture was more than just circles or flowers?
In physics, spacetime is a mathematical model that combines space and time into a single construct called the space-time continuum. A common diagram of this is represented as the following:
Let’s go back to the FOL. When color is added to the picture, it takes on a whole new “dimension”. At face value, we see a multicolored sacred geometric pattern, but if one specifically focuses on the black, cone-shaped parts of the picture, the flower disappears and the picture takes on a whole new meaning and dimension.
What does that mean? Think about the possibilities! What if this isn’t actually a picture of circles or flowers? What if this is a holographic key to the time-space continuum? We’re so trained to see things at face value (such as an untrained eye with the Magic Eye picture), that we generally don’t see the possibilities within a picture (or what the Magic Eye picture within a picture is).
This time-space continuum idea came to me when I was meditating to sacred geometry, specifically, the above multicolored picture. It's truly amazing at what happens when you take the time to look at things from more than one perspective.
It’s obvious that sacred geometry is much more than a beautiful picture reflecting harmony and artistic value. There are messages within each sacred geometry figure for us to unravel.
If I’ve piqued your curiosity to this point, then let me take this premise one step further.
Imagine being in the center of the FOL. In physics, there is relatively an equal amount of matter and antimatter in the universe, but we cannot seem to find where most of the antimatter is located. What we physically see in the FOL is only one side of the picture. What if the other side, or antimatter side, of the FOL revealed a carbon copy of this picture, thus showing an additional 6 time-space cones?
There is a new chakra system that proposes 12 chakra centers versus the traditional 7 centers. In this alternate “antimatter” view, could each cone possibly represent a chakra center?
This, of course, is all theory and speculation but I hope it helps you to see things from a different perspective. Sometimes what we see is merely a physical representation of the object we’re looking at.
