I am hoping this will lend some insight to my work comics and graphic design. The golden ration, fibonacci series, if I can harness the intrinsic design of the Universe and incorporate its elements in my work, my power will know no end! Muahahah!I love nonfiction.
approachable, nonrigorous, broad coverage
I loved geometry in school. I put together polyhedron models out of construction paper when I was a teenager just for fun. I loved the perfection of the shapes, and I didn't know this same love had been experienced by ancient peoples all around the world. Skinner shows that “ancient cultures identified the repeating patterns and harmoniously proportioned shapes found in nature as evidence of gods at work and thus deemed them sacred.” This interesting and beautifully designed book hows how n [...]
Tight, neat and succinct chapters throughout this book show that the ancients assumed the world was a Cosmos in the sense it was ordered and could be understood. Skinner begins with arithmetic, and Pythagorean number theory, highlighting the Lambda and it's relationship between the order of the planets and the notes on a stringed instrument. Skinner continues on through Geometry as it applies to the Universe, the World, the Landscape, and Man himself. Interestingly, for example, the Yard is a fu [...]
A primer into the area of sacred geometry. At best it serves as a reference of different areas to further your own discovery.The editing was horrific. I lost track of the typos less than halfway through.While I appreciate showing page numbers where a topic/individual is further discussed elsewhere in the book, it was far over used. It was also annoying to see so many that make reference to a topic/individual that is discussed later. The book could have been organized differently in order to cut [...]
Really amazing. This book is obviously just an overview; I'm sure there's a million details not included. Still, I think I understand basic mathematical concepts and how they actually relate to human life in a way I never imagined before. If I had read this in 1st grade, maybe I'd be a mathematician today. (or an architect!)
Loved the book. The math calculations about made my head explode but then I can barely add 2+2. Once past the math which sets the stage, the remaining two thirds of the book was really interesting. I find myself seeing everyday things in a completely different light.
I've read the geometry portion so far and absolutely love it. I've stopped at the astronomy portion because at the time I was reading it, I was burnt out on astronomy, so I haven't read those chapters yet. The book is well written and fairly comprehensive.
Superficial consideration, written more as an illustrated magazine article than a scholarly study, gratuitous use of the word "sacred" is annoying. One star only for a few curious connections; but new age blather has no place in a consideration of an anchient science. Skip it.
Baic but ultimately very practical book on the subject.
Interesting book about geometry in nature in the stars in modern buildings and even in art. A lot of good info, and overall a worthwhile book. Although a bit to much mathematics for my taste
The newage "gosh wows" exponentially outnumber the geometric insights. I had the sense that Skinner knows what he's talking about, then dumbed it down.
A gentle introduction to the topic for the journey, perhaps.
importance of mathematical relationships
Great book to have around on the coffee table for inspiration and intellectual stimulation. a good balance of mathematical reason and New Age woowoo.
