I notice that this aphorism is true not only for residential and commercial properties, but also somewhat unexpectedly for sites having great symbolic and/or spiritual significance.

My recent work attempts to show how the divine proportion is a hidden universal symmetry worthy of comprehensive study and understanding. Euclid’s book Elements (300 BCE) contains the first known written definition of […]

Learning from CERN

CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest, most complex and most expensive machine ever built on this planet. Over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries collaborated on its design and construction. The purpose of the machine is essentially to study the interrelation between the physics of the very small (quantum mechanics) and […]

I’m not sure which book this black-and-white geometric analysis of Pharaoh Rameses II was scanned from—it appears to […]
