New Small Alchemy Pendant and Related Designs
One of my most admired human beings and a source of inspiration is the great Buckminster Fuller, which many of you probably know as the innovator and the creator of the geodesic dome.
His concept of "doing more with less" is a fundamental basic unwritten law in creation itself which we humans violate time and again.
A few weeks ago, I've encountered his last book from 1983 called "The Grunch of Giants" - despite the fact that this book was written 26 years ago, just before his death, Fuller's chilling prophesy seems to be coming true. His concepts were such as the "World Game" also known as the World Peace Game, is an educational simulation developed in 1961 to help create solutions to overpopulation and the uneven distribution of global resources. Fuller used his "Dymaxion Map" to challenge a group of players to cooperatively solve a set of metaphorical scenarios, in such a way that they take the role of a dominant world power/nation perspective with a more holistic "total world" view. According to Fuller, the idea is to "make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone," thus increasing the quality for ALL PEOPLE.
The Alchemy Pendant (along with the Sphere of Consciousness) symbolize for me the essence of the fascinating concepts of Buckminster Fuller.
If we connect all the possible centers of the circles of the fruit of life we will receive 78 lines, creating a structure known as Metatron’s Cube. This structure contains bi-dimensional drawings of all the 5 Platonic Solids: the cube, the tetrahedron, the octahedron, the dodecahedron, and the Icosahedron. These structures are unique in having vertexes lie on the surface of a sphere. These structures and their different combinations create every possible molecular structure and every possible geometrical law, basically creating the unseen pattern behind the reality we live in.
Sphere of Consciousness
Based on the Buckminster Fuller geodesic domes concept. In a way, his geodesic domes are perfect examples of this alchemy of using the cosmic principles in order to build such delicate fragile looking structures that are actually extremely strong and robust.
This beautiful sacred geometry structure is a combination of two of the Perfect Platonic Solids, the Icosahedron and the Dodecahedron. This structure is considered by many as the structure of what is known as “The Human Consciousness Grid”.
The structure in the Divine reflection pendant is called Rhombicuboctahedron and it appears in the book De Divina Proportione by Luca Pacioli. The book was illustrated by Luca's friend – Leonardo De Vinci. The Rhombicuboctahedron structure is one of the 13 Archimedean solids.
The Divine reflection pendant symbolizes the way the universe and the Creator experience reality through us. It is also a key for us to connect to our own divinity through the insight of creation.
In 1946, Buckminster Fuller the famous architect and the designer of the geodesic dome used the cube octahedron to show that the five platonic solids are related to each other as phases of a mutual transformational process, vibrating within the shape of the cube Octahedron. He said that "... it is the referential pattern of conceptual relationships at which nature never pauses". It is considered by some to be his most important discovery. The Genesa four interwoven circles create a spherical Cube Octahedron...
Time and Space Pendant
The pendant is an octahedron. It represents time and space because it is the basis for 3d space which we experience. It also represents the way the thought form, or as a matter of fact, any creative force takes form. On each facet, I've placed the center of the Seed of Life - the pattern of creation, while in the center there is a rough diamond which represents the way our basic ideas and thought pattern turns into a reality.
What Were You Made For
Inside the octahedron, there is a question mark and on it engraved the sentence - What were you made for?
The happiest among us are the ones who managed to give their life meaning. People are the ones who cast meaning in their life through self-realization, creativity, and courage. The Octahedron structure gives a definition of time and space and symbolizes consciousness. The question mark inside the octahedron creates a beautiful delicate chime sound that acts from time to time as a "bell of awareness".
