Matrix of Creation : Sacred Geometry in the Realm of the Planets
by Richard Heath




Overview -
Reveals the ancient mathematical principles refuting the notion of the solar system as an accidental creation

- Reveals how ancient civilizations encoded their secret knowledge of the sky in mythology, music, and sacred measures

- Shows how modern culture can benefit from the ancient astronomical and astrological worldview based on number

- Shows the role of ratio and harmonic proportions in the creation of the material world

Humanity's understanding of number was deeper and richer when the concept of creation was rooted in direct experience. But modern sensibility favors knowledge based exclusively on physical laws. We have forgotten what our ancestors once knew: that numbers and their properties create the forms of the world. Ancient units of measurement held within them the secrets of cosmic proportion and alignment that are hidden by the arbitrary decimal units of modern mathematical thinking.

Sacred numbers arose from ancient man's observations of the heavens. Just as base ten numbers relate to the fingers and toes in terms of counting, each celestial period divides into the others like fingers revealing the base numbers of planetary creation. This ancient system made the art of counting a sacramental art, its units being given spiritual meanings beyond just measurement. The imperial yard, for example, retains a direct relationship to the Equator, the length of a day and a year, and the angular values of Earth, Moon, and Jupiter.

The ancients encoded their secret knowledge of the skies within mythology, music, monuments, and units of sacred measurement. They understood that the ripeness of the natural world is the perfection of ratio and realized that the planetary environment--and time itself--is a creation of number.
