Symbols play an extraordinary role in human culture and belief around the world. Their power, for good or ill, can launch us into alternative realms, leading us not only towards light and truth, but down darker paths to intolerance and hatred. Building on his acclaimed study of sacred geometry in Patterns of Eternity, the author starts by exploring megaliths, the ancient stones of the Bible, the lingams on India and the Black Stone of Mecca. He goes on to consider questions of harmony and value in the Flower of Life, the Enneagram, the Solfeggio Scale, alchemical symbols and the Cube of Light, as well as the controversial area of the swastika. Throughout, the author brings the unexpected discoveries of his own journeys to bear on the subject, continually testing the limits of our material reality. Wonderfully illustrated with over 200 colour photographs and diagrams, this fascinating book covers ancient history, science, music, art and culture, drawing them together into a coherent, inspiring journey for the reader.

Product Description:

Malcolm Stewart explores the role of symbols and sacred geometry in human culture and belief, from ancient standing stones, Pythagoras and Revelation's account of the New Jerusalem to fractals, Dan Brown and the Rubik's Cube. Covering ancient history, science, music and art, he reflects on the power of symbols to launch us into alternative realms, for good or ill, and examines how they can bring 'an aura of genuine mystery' into our lives.

Review:

'This is a beautifully illustrated essay on sacred geometry, of the sort that John Mitchell used to do, analysing examples from ancient megalithic cultures through to the temples of modern religions ... Malcolm Stewart is admirably filling the void left by Mitchell's death.' -- Fortean Times 'A beautifully illustrated sequel to the author's Patterns of Eternity, taking the reader on a journey through sacred sites around the world ... There is a good deal of technical material in the book which will appeal to specialists and which will repay careful study by the general reader ... the journey is very enjoyable.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific Medical Network Review 'This is a soul journey into the deepest aspects of living landscape, symbolism and sacred geometry, where the key theme is integration across cultures, religion and world views. It's also a personal spiritual journey that author Malcolm Stewart generously shares with us in the hope we may be inspired by it and learn much from it.' -- Nexus Magazine
