Regular Octagon

A regular octagon is an eight-sided polygon with eight equal sides and eight equal angles.

The sum of its angles, derived from the formula (n-2)180°, is equal to 1080°.

Since there are eight equal angles in a regular octagon, each angle is equal to 1080°/n; where n is equal to 8 (the number of sides of the octagon).

1080°/n = 1080°/8
               = 135° (an obtuse angle)

The eight angles of the regular octagon are the following eight directions of an 8-point compass rose (the eight-pointed star): north, east, west, south, north-east, north-west, south-east and south-west.

This means that the regular octagon is the geometric representation of a compass.

In Chinese Cosmology, Bagua (heaven) is an octagon. We know that heaven is the celestial sphere, which means that Bagua is an octagonal representation of the celestial sphere. The celestial sphere, with the cubicle representing the holy city, and the eight directions of the compass are the eight edges of the cube.

Note that an octagon can either be regular or irregular. Though a regular octagon represents balance, peace and harmony, an irregular octagon means conflict and chaos. Unlike a regular octagon, one or more angles and sides of an irregular octagon are different.

The term balance here implies equality between people of different religions, race, tribe, nation and language.

The most kept secret is that the world is a white light and diversity is a rainbow. We all constitute a white light and the diverse colours constituting the rainbow are products of a discriminating medium placed on our path.

White light is heaven. The light is a rainbow on earth because it is separated into the constituent colours of the rainbow by a glass ceiling placed between heaven earth.

Divided, the world is broken and the octagon is Yin or 2 (even number). United, the world is unbroken and the octagon is Yang or 1 (odd number).

This means that Bagua could either manifest as Yin or Yang. Yin is the sky of the underworld and Yang is the sky of the world above.

Yin = 'Yin Yang' (polarity or judgement)

Yang = Yinyang (neutrality or non-judgment)

Judgement or Yin is the irregular octagon symbolising a compass pointing downwards to the south (the ancient world). Non-judgment or Yang is the regular octagon symbolising a compass pointing upwards to the north (heaven or paradise).

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 center of the comp…

Sacred Geometry of Isosceles Right Triangle

An isosceles right triangle is a triangle with two 45° angles, a right angle and two equal sides. The side opposite the right angle is the base and the two equal angles are the base angles. The ratio of the sides opposite the two 45° angles is 1:1.

Isosceles right triangle is the product of an isosceles triangle and a right triangle.

The three sides of the isosceles right triangle correspond to the following three sides of a right triangle:
OppositeAdjacentHypotenuse The three sides are equal to the three persons of the Blessed Trinity as follows:
Opposite = Father (First Person) Adjacent = Son (Second Person) Hypotenuse = Holy Spirit (Third Person)
The linear magnitude of each person of the Blessed Trinity can be calculated via any of the six trigonometric ratios if either the angle facing the opposite side or the angle facing the adjacent side is known.
Let the angle facing the opposite side be Y. The side opposite the right angle is the hypotenuse and the remaining side is the adja…

Eight-pointed Star

The eight-pointed star is a glowing cube whose light is the product of Christ's entry into the Holy of Holies. The light is the 'ring of light' or the halo formed when the moon and the sun are aligned during annular solar eclipse. The moon is Islam, the sun is Christianity, and the 'ring of light' is the point of agreement between Islam and Christianity.

Considering the hostilities, disagreements, and wars between Christians and Muslims in the past history of the world, reconciliation between Muslims and Christians is a light for the whole world.

Although Solomon built the house of God (the cube), the house was left void or empty because he did not bring the headstone into it. Zerubbabel, however, brought the crucial headstone into the temple. The headstone is the moon.
He shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. (Zechariah 4:7) "NIV"
The light of the Holy of Holies is neither the sun nor the moon, but the '…
