**#61 Equivalence of the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra
and 10 overlapping Trees of Life**

A set of n overlapping Trees of Life with their (12n+4) triangles turned into tetractyses have
(**50**n+20) yods. When their 124 triangles are turned into tetractyses, 10 overlapping Trees of Life
have 520 yods. They are made up of **248** red yods up to Chesed of the fifth Tree (the
**31**st SL) and **248** blue yods beyond it up to (but not including) Chesed of the
tenth Tree (the 61st SL). Beyond the **496** yods up to the latter are 24 black yods.

When they are Type A triangles, the central triangle of the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra has 19 yods
and the 42 triangles surrounding it have (12×42=504) hexagonal yods on the 252 sides of their 126 tetractyses. Of
these, 12 sides with 24 black hexagonal yods are touched by these triangles, splitting each side into pairs of
lines. This leaves (252−12=240) sides with (504−24=480) hexagonal yods on them that are untouched, so that they are
single, straight lines instead of two lines that meet at the touching point. Surrounding the centre of the central
triangle are 18 yods, 16 of which are intrinsic to it because they are unshared with surrounding triangles. There
are (480+16=**496**) yods that are either hexagonal yods of true sides of tetractyses in the 42
triangles or yods in the central triangle unshared with surrounding triangles. **248** red yods
and **248** blue yods are associated with either half of the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra, one half
being the mirror image of the other.

The **248** red yods in the 10 Trees up to the **31**st SL
correspond to the **248** red yods in one half of the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra; the next
**248** blue yods up to the 61st SL correspond to the **248** blue yods in its
mirror image half. The remaining 24 black yods in 10 overlapping Trees of Life correspond to the 24 black hexagonal
yods on sides of triangles that are touched by corners of other triangles.

The 5:5 division of the holistic set of 10 Trees, each representing a Sephirah, generates the
**248**:**248** division of the **496** yods up to Chesed of the
tenth Tree. In the 2-dimensional Sri Yantra, it is its mirror symmetry only across the *central,
vertical* axis (not the central, horizontal axis) that splits the **496** yods in half.
This divides the 16 yods intrinsic to the central triangle into eight red yods and eight blue yods (two of each
type lie in the vertical plane of the mirror and six lie on each side of it). The eight red yods symbolize the
eight simple roots of the rank-8 Lie group E_{8} and the eight blue yods symbolize the eight simple
roots of E_{8}'. The 240 red yods denote the 240 roots of E_{8} and the 240 blue yods
symbolize the 240 roots of E_{8}'. The two halves of each sacred geometry are responsible for the two
similar Lie groups E_{8} & E_{8}' in the direct product E_{8}×E_{8}'
describing the symmetry of the unified interaction between one of the two types of heterotic superstrings (see also
the discussion of the Sri Yantra in the section "**496 = 248 + 248**" of **The holistic pattern**). #26 discusses other examples of how mirror symmetry causes
the same division responsible for the symmetry group of superstring forces being the *direct
product* of two *similar* symmetry groups. *It is the Kabbalistic
distinction between the Lower Face of the Tree of Life and its Upper Face that manifests in the physical
realisation of this cosmic blueprint as the universe of ordinary matter and the co-existing, invisible,
interpenetrating (apart from one of the 10 spatial dimensions) universe of shadow matter*.
