Bagua

Bagua


Bagua means the eight symbols or the eight trigrams that are the eight components of an octagon surrounding a Tao symbol of balance between Yin and Yang.

In Taoist cosmology, Bagua (also Pa Kua) is heaven. The term ‘Heaven’ was derived from “Fu Xi” Bagua (Earlier Heaven) and “King Wen” Bagua (Later Heaven).

“Fu Xi” Bagua is the old heaven or the first layer of heaven, and “King Wen” Bagua is the new Heaven or the second layer of heaven. The third heaven is represented by the Tao symbol of balance at the centre of the octagon.

Tao is the cosmic tree (the tree of life) at the center of the world, and Bagua is the chain surrounding the tree. This means that Bagua is the octet and the chains are the eight hexagons constituting the octet.

A hexagon is equal to 1 bit and the octet is equal to 8 bits (corresponding to the eight trigrams or the eight symbols).

Binary digits in Malkuth and the ten sefirot (ten decimals) are the cells of the tree of life.

John of Patmos described a vision of the first two layers of heaven as follows,
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. (Revelation 21:1) “NKJV”
New Heaven: manifested later heaven, “King Wen” Bagua (the second layer of heaven)
The First Heaven: primordial earlier heaven, “Fu Xi” Bagua (the first layer of heaven)
The third heaven is the holy city (the New Jerusalem) described in Revelation 21:2. John described a vision of the third heaven as follows,
I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:2) “NKJV”
The Apostle Paul testified that there are three heavens:
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven.  (2 Corinthians 12:2) “NIV”
The third heaven, the holy city, is Bagua Square described as follows,
The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. (Revelation 21:16) “NKJV”
Since the third layer of heaven is a square, the first and second heavens are squares.

The reality is that there are no three different squares. They are the same square in three different locations. The second heaven is the first heaven forty five degrees from its initial position and the third heaven is is the second heaven tilted 45°.

Since a square is made up of four equal sides, the Bagua (the two squares) is made up of eight sides. The eight sides of the Bagua are the sum of the four sides of the first square (the first heaven) and the four sides of the second square (the second heaven).

The Bagua, the sum of the new heaven and the old heaven, is an Octagon.

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…

Monad

The Monad (1) is an encycled dot or point O, representing the Alpha and Omega,  constructed using a compass and a pencil. The center of the circle is the origin or source of all things and the circumference of the circle is the end or crown of everything, such that the Monad is the first and the last; the beginning and the end.

Creation of the Cosmos is construction of geometric shapes. The most important part of the process of creation is the construction of the first day and the last day. The two days were constructed simultaneously.

God constructed the first day when he said "let there be light!" (Genesis 1:3) "NIV"

The light that appeared on the first day of creation of the Cosmos is the halo - a ring of light.

The last day is the seventh day when God rested from his work of creation of the harmonious world. "By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work." (Genesis 2:2) 'NIV"…

Construction

Creation is, geometrically, construction using mathematical instruments such as protractor, compass, pencil, ruler, etc.

Heaven, the immaterial world, is visible on earth through geometric shapes and patterns, and could be revealed by the study of geometry and trigonometry.

Signs and symbols of worship in various religions are either simple geometric shapes, combinations of two or more geometric shapes or modified geometric structures.

Examples: the cross in Christianity is a net of cube, the kaabK in Islam is a cuboid, Mandala in Hinduism is a circle, and the Hexagram in Judaism is a product of two equilateral triangles.

God is a geometer, which means that he is a teacher and humans are his students. He (God) has been trying to teach humans the orderly geometric patterns defining the exact and accurate nature of heaven.

Question: why would God want humans to study the structure of heaven?

Answer: God wants the same law governing heaven to govern the earth.

The law of heaven is harmo…
