World tree or cosmic tree is the bridge (the Axis Mundi) built across the river of the water of life to unite humanity into one harmonious people. It is the tree of life described in the Holy Bible as follows,
On each side of the river was the tree of life, which bears fruit twelve times a year, once each month; and its leaves are for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2) "GNT"

The tree of life: world tree (cosmic tree)

The two sides of the river are Yin and Yang. The cosmic tree is the bridge uniting Yin (one side of the river) and Yang (the other side of the river) to form Yang (Yinyang).

Yin is the darkness of the past and Yang is the light of the future. Therefore the world tree (the tree of life) unites the past and the future to form the present. The future is heaven, the past is the underworld, and the present is the terrestrial world.

The cosmic tree is the new Jerusalem where the past is the 'Past Light Cone', the future is the 'Future Light Cone', and the present is the 'Hypersurface of the Present'. The past, separated from the future, is the underworld or hell (darkness).

But the past is transformed into Paradise when united with the future. The point of unity is the square of the new Jerusalem. Therefore the past and the future are  two circles united to form one circle. And the present is the square enclosing the circle to form the Mandala. This means that the tree of  life is the light cone (the circle). The square is the four cardinal points of the earth and the circle is the sky above the earth. The circle (the sky) is heaven, the square is Earth, and the Mandala is is the tree of life where heaven and earth are united.

Heaven and earth are united during Annular Solar Eclipse. The single 'Ring of Light' formed during the annular solar eclipse is the circle of the Mandala. The circle or 'Ring of Light' is the halo called the light of the glory of God.
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light (Revelation 21:23) "NIV"

The glory of God: the halo (the circle) or the 'Ring of Light'

The city: the square (the new Jerusalem)

The glory of God gives it light: the circle or 'Ring of Light' is the light of Square (the new Jerusalem)

Note that the moon and the sun are above the Earth during an annular Solar Eclipse unlike during a Lunar Eclipse. Lunar eclipse implies chaos or Yin because the past (night) is separated from the future (day) by the earth. This means that the Lunar Eclipse is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The moon below the earth was hell or the grave, and the sun above the earth was heaven. The ascension of the moon from beneath the Earth to above the Earth during an Annular Solar Eclipse is the resurrection of the dead. It is the destruction of death. And the Annular Solar Eclipse, unlike the Lunar Eclipse, is the tree of life.

The "Ring of Light' formed during an Annular Solar Eclipse is the reconciliation (the unity and the agreement) made possible by the bridge (the cosmic tree). This means that the reconciliation is the light. Night is a blue pigment, day is a yellow pigment, and the reconciliation is the green pigment formed when the blue and yellow pigments are mixed together.

The green pigment (the reconciliation) is the Chlorophyll called the leaves of the tree of life. This explains why the leaves of the tree of life are synonymous with reconciliation (healing).

Its leaves are for the healing of the nations: the leaves are for reconciling the nations.

The term "healing" implies conflict resolution or to resolve/settle differences.

Therefore the tree of life is about uniting different perspectives of the same thing to form the harmony known as the cosmos. Hence the tree of life or World Tree is called Cosmic Tree.

Qibla Compass

Qibla compass is a compass design showing clearly that Islam is a direction, and Muslims constitute just one out of the many directions of a compass. Some of the other directions of the compass are Sikhism, Gnosticism, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Atheism, Psychology, Philosophy, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'i Faith, Babism, Rastafarianism, etc.

Qibla compass is designed specifically to help Muslims locate the direction of Mecca and pray facing the Kaaba. Some designs have the word "Mecca" inscribed as the most prominent direction on the compass; others have the image of the Kaaba or a Mosque signifying the qibla (Muslim direction) on the compass.
Although Judaism doesn't have a compass to show Jews what direction to face during prayers, the fact that Jews all over the world pray toward the Temple Mount is an evidence that Judaism is a direction and the Temple Mount is the qibla of the Jews.
Every religion is a compass - the centre of the comp…

Mandala

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …

Spacetime

Space-time (also axis mundi) is the hexagon inside the hexagram where the three hands of time meet with three dimensional space.

In physics,spacetime is any mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensionalcontinuum. 
The hexagram ABCDEF above is the sum of two triangles: ABC and DEF. The three sides of the triangle ABC are the three hands of time, and the triangle DEF is three dimensional s[ace.

The three hands of time are:

HourMinuteSecond The three manifestations of three dimensional space are: LengthBreadthHeight In triangle ABC, Hour = AB, Minute = BC, Second = CA. In triangle DEF, Length = DE, Breadth = EF, Height = FD.
Time is the circle of the sky, and the clock is the physical manifestation of time. Since the clock is made up of hour, minute, and second, triangle ABC is Time (the clock).
The three hands of time are manifestations of the three persons of the Blessed Trinity.
Hour (AB) = Father Minute (BC) = S…
