geometry: Invisible blueprint of life
Teddye Snell, Press Staff Writer - November 13 2006
the Egyptians to the Greeks, from the Kabbalistic Jews to the Christians, sacred
geometry has been taught throughout time to initiates as a closely guarded secret.
to Dr. Robert Gilbert, a former U.S. Marine Corps intructor in nuclear-biological-chemical
warfare survival who holds a doctorate in international studies, the world is
being shaped - sometimes for the worse - by a modern science that manipulates
lifes natural patterns, while lacking the contextual understanding to do

initiation teachings about the hidden relationships between the physical and spiritual
worlds. Sacred geometry is the basis for the sacred science of Egypt, and the
Pythagorean science of vibrational energies. According to Gilbert, its the
master key to expanding spiritual awareness, as well as healing the physical body
and correcting energetic problems.
geometry can be related to the Platonic solids, or the five shapes
that can divide a circle or sphere perfectly. The five forms are the tetrahedron,
the octahedron, the hexahedron (cube), the icosahedron and the dodecahedron.
wrote about them in the dialogue Timaeus, and he associated each with
of the four classical elements. Earth was associated with the cube; air with the
octahedron; water with the icosahedron; and fire with the tetrahedron. There was
intuitive justification for these associations: The heat of fire feels sharp and
stabbing (like little tetrahedra). Air is made of the octahedron; its minuscule
components are so smooth that one can barely feel it. Water, the icosahedron,
flows out of ones hand when picked up, as if it is made of tiny little balls.
But a highly un-spherical solid, the hexahedron (cube) represents earth. These
clumsy little solids cause dirt to crumble and breaks when picked up, in stark
contrast to the smooth flow of water.
Plato obscurely says the fifth Platonic
solid, the dodecahedron, ...the god used for arranging the constellations
on the whole heaven. Aristotle added a fifth element, ether,
and postulated that the heavens were made of this element, but he had no interest
in matching it with Plato's fifth solid.
was this fifth solid Gilbert expounded upon.
The dodecahedron was not
widely taught, said Gilbert. It is the pure, spiritual lifeforce,
and people were told to keep it hidden, as if it were misused, it could create

Atmospheric Administration now believe the earth is shaped like a dodecahedron.

as the famous Bermuda Triangle.

points in space and time, said Gilbert. Other nodal points on the
earth have been known as devils graveyards because space and
time dont work right.
scholars disregarded the idea of the Platonic solids until the 1980s, when Professor
Emeritus Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated the entire periodic
table of elements - everything known in the physical world - is based on these

the form for uranium is a double-dodecahedron. The periodic table is a revelation
of the spirit - thoughts from the mind of God.

element palladium, No. 46 on the periodic table, is part of the platinum family
and is connected to alchemy, said Gilbert. When palladium is used
in combination with other metals and electronic stimulation, it creates what some
refer to as cold fusion. However, the problem with cold fusion is that it is not
constant. Energetic conditions shift from time to time and place to place, and
can even be affected by the person conducting the experiment, much to scientists
might find it surprising that Gilbert never really cared for math.
never liked math, said Gilbert. But geometry is different. As children,
we play with shapes and natural forms, but prematurely we force children to look
at them in a mathematical process. Math is useful for analysis, but it doesnt
free the soul.
reason for providing this information is three-fold.
understanding the patterns behind everything in the manifest world, we can start
to change things in our personal lives, he said. In teaching sacred
geometry, people begin to understand the unity between science and spirit. It
confirms we can be understood without religious dogma, as its a type of
spirituality that unites people. Finally, it provides a unity between traditions
based on what we all encounter; geometry is universal in nature, no matter what
leaving the service in 1985, Gilbert has conducted independent research into the
geometric basis of modern science and new technologies. He is also a Rosicrucian
with more than 20 years experience in sacred geometry and its hidden uses
by the worlds spiritual traditions.
1997, he began for the first time to teach publicly the results of his two decades
of intensive research, and continues teaching both publicly and privately in Asheville,

break free from my own scientific background, said Willson. After
reading several wonderful books on the subject, I just surrendered, and now I
