The Sacred Tetractys


The pythagorean discovered God in numbers and worshipped in digits concealed in ten dots or points (the ten sefirot) arranged in four rows to form an equilateral triangle called Tetractys. In decimal numerical system, the numbers are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

St. Augustine of Hippo wrote: "Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth."

0 is the apex of the triangle and the first row of the Tetractys. The second row is made up of 1 and 2. The third row is made up of 3, 4 and 5. And the fourth row (the base of the triangle) is made up of 6, 7, 8 and 9.

The four dots in the fourth row are the four living creatures: "Surrounding the throne on each of its sides, were four living creatures" (Revelation 4:6) "GNT"

Numerically, the four dots or points are 6, 7, 8 and 9.

The three dots (3, 4 and 5) in the third row are the three persons of the Blessed Trinity. "Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptise them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" (Mark 28:19) "GNT"

Blessed Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In Taoism, the three persons in the Blessed Trinity are called the Three Purities, the Three Pure Ones, the Three Pure Pellucid Ones, the Three Divine Teachers, the Three Pristine Ones, or the Three Clarities.

The two dots (1 and 2) in the second row are the Father and the Son. "That the Father's glory will be shown through the Son." (John 14:13) "GNT"

And the single point in the first row represents God as an indivisible unit (i.e. monotheism). "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one" (Deuteronomy 6:4) "NIV"

In Taoism, the four points in the fourth row are Si Xiang, the three points in the third row are the Taoist Trinity, the two points in the second row are Yin and Yang, and the single point in the first row is Yinyang. Yin and Yang are equal to Wuji, and Yinyang is equal to 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…

Gaokerena

In Zoroastrianism, the World Tree (the tree of life described in Revelation 22) is called the mighty Gaokerena.
The mighty Gaokerena was a mythic Haoma plant that had healing properties when eaten and gave immortality to the resurrected bodies of the dead. (Wikipedia)
Wondering how large is the mighty Gaokerena? The tree is visible during binary black hole merger in gravitational wave astronomy. Consider the size of a black hole and how many black holes are there; that is the size of the giant Gaokerena.

The healing property of the Gaokerena is the reconciliation demonstrated whenever two black holes are merged to form a single black hole during binary black hole merger.

Islam and Christianity are two examples of two conflicting religions. The apostle Paul described the Christians as the Children of the day, which means that the Christians constitute the sun.
For you are all childrenof light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. (1 Thessalonians 5:5) "E…

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 …
