Temple of the Mind

In earlier posts, I’ve provided evidence to suggest ancient temples, such as Solomon’s temple and medieval churches like Rosslyn chapel, were designed based on the geometry of the StarKey. This pentagonal-egg design appears to be related to the mythology of Mt. Meru from Vedic tradition and even the basic model behind pyramid building around the world (see this).

In this post, I present additional evidence to suggest that the StarKey design offers a link between temple design and the structure of the human skull. Here are the supporting facts:

1. The Vedic name for a temple is “tikal.”

2. The Vedic name for the red dot worn by Hindus on the forehead, representing the third eye, is also called a “tika” or “tikal.”

3. The StarKey has been shown as the geometric pattern of proportions used in Rosslyn Chapel, Solomon’s Temple and the Clavicula Salomonis.

Based on this, I propose that the StarKey is a natural recursion process in biological life (caused by harmonic damping actions integral to atomic resonance) and that this was used as the primary sacred model in ancient temple building.

In previous work, my analysis of human physiology has been focused on explaining the Gaussian spectral distribution of harmonics within a polarized plenum chamber, characteristic of the body’s cardioid growth pattern. Here, I extend the recursion model begun in my Harmonic Evolution paper by separating out just the fifth harmonic partial and applying that to human skull to identify correlating features.

Doing this should demonstrate key features in the human skull that are also present in the full Gaussian distribution. The purpose in doing this is to 1) further illuminate the physical role the fifth partial and golden mean plays in guiding biological growth and evolution, and 2) draw a clear connection between ancient temple architecture and the physiology of the human cranium.

In the above figure, the StarKey isolates the recursive harmonic damping action at work in the human skull. We can easily see that the StarKey intersection points correspond to various features in the skull, including top and bottom of skull, angular ridges either side of the eyes, the traditional “tikal” location, the top and bottom of the nasal cavity, location of the ear canal, bottom of the cranium, the separation line between teeth and chin ridges. In short, wherever there is a line in the StarKey, we find a hole, slice or matching structural demarcations characteristic of damping lines in a resonant container. The container geometry is then describable as an egg quasi-crystal, the same component in the StarKey. This geometry appears to function as a maximal containment geometry for the skull in both top and frontal dimensions.

As it applies to temple building, the StarKey geometry may have been first deduced through a study of the human skull, then used as a model for early temple building. Astronomical observations were probably taken to support this as a model for the cosmos, based primarily on the pentagonal orbit of Venus, and botanical examination, such as the seed pattern in an apple or petal cluster of a rose. The difference here, though, is the recursive nesting of pentagrams and the reflection of the figure to complete both temple and cranial extensions.

Thus, the StarKey geometry - the mythological Mt. Meru bridge to the afterlife - may have originated as a physiological model of the mind and used as a floor plan model by ancient temple builders. It may have also led to other religious interpretations, such as the stylized headdresses worn in Tibetan, Thai, Egyptian and many other religious ceremonies - thus, completing the “invisible” portion of the StarKey.

In this way, the StarKey model of Meru cosmology is arguably the one unifying design linking ancient temples with human physiology, implying their belief that God originates in the mind inside the StarKey egg. Based on how the StarKey geometry was used and location of greatest importance, ancient philosophers might have even identified the location of God at the Shekinah (or Venus) pillar at the entrance to the “holy of holies” corresponding to the intersection point at the bottom of the blue star (top intersection in the above diagram).
