Sacred Geometry: The Hidden Science of the Universe

Imagine a world in which everything—from the music we listen to, to the buildings we live in, to the scientific concepts we study—comes from one single source: a geometrical shape. Hard to believe? Think again: that’s exactly what sacred geometry is all about.

It’s a topic that Vanier student Tara Santavicca has had a keen interest in for a while now—and she decided to share it with the Vanier community. On Thursday, March 24th, the young Science student held a talk at the auditorium, entitled “Sacred Geometry: The Framework to Understanding the World We Live In,” on the occasion of Science Week at Vanier.

“Everything in the world must be connected somehow,” Santavicca says. Even though sacred geometry is still a hypothesis per se, the concept in itself is pretty simple: everything in the universe, all the information gathered through the centuries, can be retraced and discovered from one single shape and the geometric constructions that can be derived from it.

“It’s hypothesized—we don’t know if it’s necessarily actually true, but when you look at the shapes in itself, we can find the information we’ve discovered over the past thousands of years,” Santavicca mentions. In her talk, she focuses on one shape in particular: the Flower of Life.

“The Flower of Life is a geometric shape that you can find all over the world, dating back 6,000 years, in Ancient Egypt,” Santavicca explains. She further adds that it’s a shape that has been found in many other cultures throughout history, including Ancient Rome, Da Vinci’s Renaissance Italy, as well as relics found in Turkey and India, to name a few.

The Flower of Life is issued from overlapping circles, all with a radius of 1. Its basic shape is one single circle. The second shape, the vesica piscis, is formed with two circles each centered at the circumference of the other. Just those two circles are already filled with information. “With geometrical lines,” Santavicca says, “we can get from it the square root of 2, 3, and 5, which also happen to be the first numbers of the Fibonacci sequence.”

Loads of other information, all of it somehow interconnected, can be retrieved from the circles of the Flower of Life. “Beginning from the first circle, up until the 19th circle, and with every circle that you add, you discover more information in terms of physics and mathematics,” Santavicca details. “The more complex the shape gets, the more information you can retrieve.”

Other concepts, such as the Fibonacci sequence, the golden ratio, the notion of toroidal flows, as well as many derivations and shapes issued from the Flower of Life are topics that Santavicca covers in her talk.

The young student lists biology, physics and mathematics as examples where we can find some of the shapes she describes. However, the discipline of sacred geometry doesn’t only limit itself to science. She cites music as an example. “Music has a specific frequency, a specific vibration. Light also has a specific frequency; everything in our universe emits a specific vibration, and you can find all this within the geometric shapes of the Flower of Life.”

A question many might ask themselves would be the use of sacred geometry. “With the knowledge that everything could be connected, how could we use that knowledge to move forward and to improve our quality of life?” Santavicca questions.

It’s something she happens to discuss in her talk as well. She introduces the concept of free energy, discovered by Serbian American scientist Nikola Tesla, through the concept of toroidal flow; “everything that stems out of a single point will come back in.” This concept of flow is similar to the magnetic field of our planet (stems out of the North pole, to reach the South, and come back again), or even the human cardiovascular system (the heart pumps blood throughout the entire body, and the blood eventually comes back to the heart, to be pumped again).

Santavicca believes that the applications of the toroidal flow and free energy could be beneficial to our society. “Maybe we can live in a way that we all prosper, instead of having things that die out, or things that are no longer sufficient,” she says. She’s not wrong—modern scientists are in fact working more and more towards measures that would ensure progress in our society, without leaving damage to the environment, for instance, using the idea of free energy and the model of the toroidal flow.

When asked what sparked her interest in the topic, Santavicca smiles. For her, it all started with yoga. “I began practicing yoga, and then got interested in the chakras, and the history and the knowledge behind yoga and the spiritual part of it,” she says with a laugh. However, by doing her own research, she started to notice similarities with those concepts, and her science courses. “There was a lot of overlapping within the information, and then I came upon sacred geometry,” she adds. The rest is now history.

The idea of giving a talk during Science Week was suggested by her biology teacher, with whom she shared some concepts, and how they related to the course content. Her excitement about the talk, and the topic, is more than obvious. “I think it’s something that many people can relate to,” she says. “It’s definitely a talk that needs an open mind; it’s something fairly new connecting spiritual history with science. It shows that science is much more than just the factual things that we have, and that there’s possibly a greater look at it.”

“It was a great experience having the opportunity to give a talk during Science Week,” she says. “I’m glad people took interest in this topic as much as I did.” Eager to learn even more than she already knows, she hopes to hear of future studies on the topic, and hopefully, “aim to understand the Universe in more depth.”
