Bagua

Basic structure of the three layers of heaven. Bagua is the first two
layers of heaven, and Taiji is the third layer.

Bagua (also Pa Kua) is heaven, the abode of God, described in Revelation 21:1. Heaven is made up of three layers; the first two layers constitute the Bagua, the third layer is the Taiji. The term ‘Heaven’ was derived from “Fu Xi” Bagua (Earlier Heaven) and “King Wen” Bagua (Later Heaven).
Bagua: Heaven
“Fu Xi”: Earlier
“Fu Xi” Bagua: Earlier Heaven
“King Wen”: Later
“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.
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, and the second layer of heaven.
The First Heaven: primordial earlier heaven, “Fu Xi” Bagua, and the first layer of heaven.
Taiji, the third layer of heaven, is the holy city (the New Jerusalem) described in Revelation 21:2. John described the vision of the third layer of 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 the 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 layers of heaven 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. The two heavens are heaven: the Bagua.
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.

Axis Mundi

Axis Mundi (also world line, world axis, cosmic axis, world pillar and center of the world) is the point where the celestial axis is reconciled to the four cardinal point of the earth. In other words, it is the bridge between God and man, a line of communication between heaven and earth, and a ladder reaching from the earth to the sky.

A line of communication was established between Jacob and God. Jacob was the earth, God was the sky (heaven), and the line of communication between them was the axis mundi.

He dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. (Genesis 28:12) "NKJV"He: Jacob

Ladder: Axis Mundi

A ladder was set up on the earth: the axis mundi is a ladder connecting heaven (the sky) and the earth

Angels: messengers

Angels of God: messengers of God

God had direct communication with Jacob immediately the axis mundi was set up,
The Lord stood above it and said: “I am the …

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 …

The Jasper Stone

The jasper stone is the keystone (the capstone or headstone), the light, and the clue to understanding the structure of the new Jerusalem.

Jasper, an aggregate of microgranular quartz and/or chalcedony and other mineral phases, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color; and rarely blue. (Wikipedia)
Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. (Revelation 21:11) "NKJV"Her: the new Jerusalem

Her light: the light of the new Jerusalem

Her light is like unto a stone: the light of the new Jerusalem is like a stone

Like a jasper: the light of the new Jerusalem is like a jasper stone

What is unique about the jasper stone is that it looks like a stone made up of different fragments. All the fragments are joined together like blocks cemented together to form a wall.

There is only one stone: the jasper stone. The stone is the seed. Jesus is the seed (the jasper stone) and the fragments are the human beings that …
