Sacred Geometries and Their Scientific Meanings

The Interface between Science and the Transcendental

Stephen M. Phillips  


"The Universe is a thought of the Deity. Since this ideal thought-form has overflowed into actuality, and the world born thereof has realized the plan of its creator, it is the calling of all thinking beings to rediscover in this existent whole the original design."

Friedrich Schiller



Inner form of Tree of Life 
How sacred geometries are equivalent to one another, encode the nature of all levels of reality and embody the structure and dynamics of the basic particles of matter.




The 421 polytope has 6720 edges

 The 2-d Sri Yantra has 672 yods other than corners of triangles

The 421 polytope has 6720 edges.

  The Sri Yantra has 672 yods other than corners of triangles.

Weighted with the number 10, the 672 yods other than corners of triangles in the Sri Yantra constructed from tetractyses denote the 6720 edges of the 421 polytope. The 240 corners, sides & triangles surrounding the centre of the Sri Yantra correspond to the 240 vertices of the 421 polytope, which represent the 240 roots of E8, the rank-8, exceptional Lie group associated with E8×E8 heterotic superstring forces. It is implausible to attribute to coincidence both these properties of the Sri Yantra. Rather, they indicate that such superstrings exist and conform to this blueprint as its subatomic realization.

Gosset polytope as inner form of 10 Trees of Life

The number of yods lining the 6720 edges of the 421 polytope that represents the 240 roots of E8 is equal to the number of yods in the inner form (with Type B polygons) of 10 overlapping Trees of Life. The analogous features listed above are convincing evidence that the 421 polytope conforms to the archetypal pattern embodied in sacred geometries because it is highly implausible that they arise by chance. The implication is inescapable and profound: E8×E8 heterotic superstrings exist as the microscopic manifestation of the Tree of Life blueprint.

672 yods in 1st 4 Platonic solids

 672 hexagonal yods in 3-torus with Type A triangles

Weighted with the Decad (10), the 672 yods in the first 4 Platonic solids, the faces & interiors of which are constructed from tetractyses, generate the number (6720) of edges of the 421 polytope. On average, they are made up of 168 yods, generating the number 1680. This shows how these 4 regular polyhedra, thought by the ancient Greeks to be the shapes of the particles of the elements Earth, Water, Air & Fire, embody the basic numbers (168 & 1680) characterising the helical form of the E8×E8 heterotic superstring constituents of matter — the "UPAs" remote-viewed by Annie Besant & C.W. Leadbeater 123 years ago. It confirms the ancient intuition that the geometry of the first 4 Platonic solids determines the form of the basic constituents of physical matter.


Weighted with the Decad (10), the 672 hexagonal yods making up the 56 Type A triangles (168 tetractyses) in the {3,7} tessellation on the 3-torus of the 168 automorphisms of the Klein quartic generate the number (6720) of edges of the 421 polytope. The interior angle of the 8 triacontagons formed from its 240 vertices as Petrie polygons is 168°. This association between the numbers 672 & 168 establishes unequivocally the connection between the E8×E8 heterotic superstring structural parameter 168, determined through the remote-viewing of atoms, and the 421 polytope, whose 240 vertices represent the 240 roots of the rank-8 Lie group E8 appearing in E8×E8 heterotic superstring theory.

Proof that the inner form of 10 Trees of Life maps the 421 polytope, whose 240 vertices represent the 240 roots of E8.

The 431 polytope is the inner form of 10 Trees of Life
