Charles Gilchrist on Sacred Geometry
In October of 2009 I saw something within my own eye, I was diagnosed earlier in the summer with a slight cataract on the lens of that eye. What I saw in October is described in this two part series of posts, part ONE and part TWO. Whatever it was, it was within my eye, and only I could see it. As strange as it sounds, I immediately recognized the image was a combination of a gray alien, a seated Buddha, a scull—and me!

What is more curious is the shape that emerges in the way the two circles overlap. I was informed by that reader that this is a essential element within the study of sacred geometry. He linked me to a video presentation by an artist named Charles Gilchrist (a guy with "Christ" right in his name) and he nicely explains the formation of this series of shapes.
Given this, and if the image in my eye was actually a caricature of myself, then the Vesica Piscis frames my heart chakra, so right on for me!

The Circle is . . . THE ALL. This is the essence of Mandala: The Circle holds ALL.
These two overlapping circles with a common radius, create the second enclosed form of Sacred Geometry. The ancients called this archetype. The Vesica Piscis. (black shape)
ALL FORM, literally ALL the dimensional forms of this cosmos evolve from this football like shape . . . The Vesica Piscis.
The Vesica Piscis is literally the womb of the universe . . . the ever unfolding Mother of Sacred Geometry.
