The Crown Diamond and Eight Points






Large Graphics


Octagonal representations are commonly used in the construction of mandalas for use in meditation, particularly in Buddhism. Note how precisely this eight-point star aligns with the cubit of the vertical Adam Kadmons in the Crown Diamond display. By connecting the eight points in the manner shown above, congruent squares are juxtapositioned in an akimbo pattern, suggestive of the orientation of practitioners of Hatha yoga. The square is present in the mishkan, also.

The octagram-the star with eight points-is a dynamic common to the churches of Ephesus and Philadelphia, as well as to the church at Laodicea, where it assumes upright and inverted positions; the dynamic is also repositioned by inversion within the star appearing at Thyatira.

The circumferences of the circles surrounding each star or polygon in these drawings are obtained by circumscribing various angles or areas of the stars of the Churches of Asia. The end points of each measurement equal the width of the vertical Adam Kadmon; and that measurement is then employed as a cubit, to be positioned as chords laid end-to-end along the circles so defined. After the end points of the cubit are marked, they are then connected, each to an opposite, by lines drawn from point to point as logic suggests. Thus, every regular star so extrapolated from the stars of the churches of Asia is accompanied by a regular polygon sharing the same end points, were the adjacent points to be connected in sequence.

Not every possible extrapolation is presented in these pages. Ultimately, every angle and discrete area of the stars of the Churches of Asia should be measured and analyzed by means of the tools of mathematics, the results then being studied for spiritual implications.
