Banyen's Description: 

Encompassing nature, science, art, architecture, and spirituality, and illustrated with over 700 photographs and line drawings, The Hidden Geometry of Life illuminates the secret underpinnings of existence. In her trademark easy-to-understand style, mathematician Karen French shows how sacred geometry permeates every level of being, manifesting itself in simple shapes and numbers, music and sounds, light and color, even in the mysteries of creation itself. But these geometrical archetypes are more than the building blocks of reality: they are gateways to profound new levels of awareness.

Conceived as a journey through geometry, sciences, the arts and spirituality, the books moves from basic shapes in structure and symbol, to detailed ideas about the building blocks of matter, how Nature uses pattern-sharing to spawn a huge variety of life forms, how sound contributes to propagating reality as we experience it, and the vital role played by light. French brings all these concepts together and also explores “unified ideas about space, time and life in the Universe, to show how insights from ancient and mystical traditions correspond to the latest scientific theories about the world in which we live.”

Sacred geometry is the use of geometry with intent as a tool or vehicle, invoking purpose. Around the globe scribbles on walls, rocks and artefacts have evolved into sophisticated systems representing an inseparable fusion of art, mythology, science, music , religion and “magic”. As tools, geometry, colour and the Classical Elements can be used in a variety of ways in our creative expressions to commune with reality and expand the Mind.
