thus adding the Square Root of 5 as the third generative principle. The square root of 5 transverse two worlds….the worlds of spirit and body….The /5 is the proportion which opens the way for the family of relationships called the Golden Proportion. Sacred Geometry, Lawlor, Workbook 3. ]]>

Yes! Leet’s geometric exegesis has definitely influenced my thought process in this post. I think that book has some really valuable information for those of us on the initiatic path. Aside from her geometrical analysis (which she gets really into in her last book “The Universal Kabbalah”), I find that her research into the pronunciation of the divine name YHVH as a signifier of the long vowels makes a lot of sense in terms of how Greco-Egyptian Magic and Vedic Mantras vibrate nomina barbara and mantras…hmm maybe a future post on this topic.

As for Root2, I think it is more of an implied ratio than one geometrically manifest by the model. If we think of how such a mandala mus be created using a compass, we find that the compass itself forms the Root2 ratio between the legs holding the pen and the needle. As such, the “reflection” of the center point is conceptualized as swapping the legs of the compass so that the point where the Root2 leg was previously becomes the pivot.

Also, Root2 is the ratio that defines the relationship of a central Middle Pillar Sefirah to the the location of the next Sefirah down the Middle Pillar through the point where the horizontal diameter intersects the circumference.

]]>The last diagram displays the ratio root 2, you don’t addressand does not look to deal with any of the Sephirot directly. How does this number fit into the model?
