**#9** **Parallelism between the
Inner Tree of Life and the 2-d Sri Yantra**

This displays in more detail the correspondence between the 236 geometrical elements in the 42
triangles of the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra and the 236 yods that line the sides of the 14 regular polygons in the
inner Tree of Life. The counterpart of the two halves of the former is the two halves of the latter, although it
must be noted that the **21** triangles in one half of the Sri Yantra are not precisely the
mirror image of the **21** triangles in its opposite half, as is the case for the two halves of
the inner Tree of Life. Corners of triangles correspond to corners of polygons and sides in the first three sets of
triangles correspond to red & blue hexagonal yods. The purple yods do *not* denote solely either
triangles or sides in the fourth set of triangles because this would destroy the 1:1 correspondence between the two
halves of each system. Instead, the 42 purple yods denote the **21** triangles and the
**21** sides in one half of the fourth set of triangles, whilst the 42 orange yods denote the
**21** triangles and **21** sides in the fourth set of triangles in the other
half. Notice that — as required by the analogy with the Sri Yantra — the 42 yods of each colour divide up into two
sets of **21** yods. One set consists of one yod on the root edge and 20 yods that belong to the
decagon & dodecagon, and the other set comprises yods that belong to the triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon
& octagon. Such *exact* parallelism between the two systems discredits the possibility of
coincidence as implausible.
