Circumscribed Circle


In geometry, a circumscribed circle (also circumcircle) of a polygon is a circle enclosing a cyclic polygon such that the circumference of the circle passes through all the vertices of the polygon.

All triangles and all regular simple polygons are cyclic polygons, which means that equilateral triangle, regular cyclic quadrilateral, regular pentagon, regular hexagon and regular octagon are cyclic polygons.

Recall that an octet is a regular octagon comprised of regular hexagons and equilateral triangles. Since these three geometric shapes are cyclic polygons, an octet is a circle comprised of circles.

In logical reasoning, the intersection between two equilateral triangles is a conjunction between two circles or two rings. Two circumscribed equilateral triangles are merged to form a circumscribed regular hexagon, and eight circumscribed regular hexagons are fused to form a circumscribed regular octagon.

Since the three geometric shapes are circumscribed polygons, each one can be substituted by its corresponding circle. This means that the two regular hexagons corresponding to the ten sefirot are two intersecting circles, the two equilateral triangles constituting the regular hexagon are two intersecting circles, and the eight regular hexagons constituting the octet are eight intersecting circles.

Circumscribed circles are divine, since the octet is a vessel of divine information.

"Early science, particularly geometry and astrology and astronomy, was connected to the divine for most medieval scholars, and many believed that there was something intrinsically "divine" or "perfect" that could be found in circles" (Wikipedia)

As a circumscribed regular octagon, the octet is an 8-point Compass Rose with four cardinal points and four ordinal points.

The four cardinal directions are:
1. North (N)
2. East (E)
3. West (W)
4. South (S)

The four ordinal directions are:
1. North-east (ne)
2. South-west (sw)
3. North-west (nw)
4. South-east (se)

The radius of the circle is the circumradius of the circumscribed circle and the centre of the compass is its circumcenter.

Circumscribed octagon is a two-dimensional representation of the celestial sphere. This means that the sky is an octet and the eight circles representing the eight regular hexagons are the circular pathways of the eight planets of the solar system.

In other words, the eight vertices of the octagon are the eight planets of the Solar System.

Therefore the circumscribed circle is the celestial sphere. The circumcenter is the observer and the circle is the celestial equator. The celestial sphere is a coin made up of a head and a tail. The head is northern celestial hemisphere or the visible side of the coin and the tail is the southern celestial hemisphere or the invisible side of the coin.

Since Dome of the Rock is the earthly emanation of the octet, the sanctuary is made up of northern and southern hemispheres. The visible structure is the northern  hemisphere, and the southern hemisphere is the structure buried under the sanctuary; there is an exact replica of Dome of the Rock buried under the Temple Mount.

Since the octet is Bagua, Dome of the Rock is the physical manifestation of the famous Bagua (heaven) described in Chinese Cosmology. The rock at the centre of the sanctuary is the "Supreme Ultimate" Taiji.

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…

Sacred Geometry of Isosceles Triangle

An isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two equal sides and two equal angles. The two equal angles are called base angles, which means that the base angles of an isosceles triangle are equal.

The two equal sides of the isosceles triangle are the Father and the Son respectively. This means that the isosceles triangle is the throne of the Father and the Son where the Father sits on the left and the Son sits on the right.

He has been raised to the right side of God, his Father, and has received from him the Holy Spirit, as he had promised. (Acts 2:33) "GNT"
The Son seated at the right hand side of God is a human being that is either in harmony with the Father or disconnected from God.

The Son is the image of the Father whenever he listens to the teachings of the Father and learns from him. He is the shadow of the Father whenever he stops learning. Shadow implies alienation.

Whether a man becomes the image of God or the shadow of God depends on the third line (and the third…

Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place is the Axis Mundi in the form of a brilliant or glowing transparent glass cube described as the holy city, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, the new Jerusalem, and the bride (the wife of the Lamb).

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”      (Revelation 21:9) "NIV"
A cube is made up of six square facets, eight vertices and twelve edges. The eight vertices constitute space, the twelve edges constitute time, and the six square facets (or faces) constitute space-time where the three hands of time are reconciled to three dimensional space.

8 Vertices = Space

12 Edges = Time

6 Sides = Space-time

Space (the 8 vertices) is a compass and time (the 12 edges) is a clock, such that the cube (the Holy of Holies) is a compass clock.

The compass is the geographical axis, the clock is the celestial axis, and the cube is the Axis Mundi (the center of the world) where the celestial axis and the geographical axis are connected or u…
