Who & what TimeStar is
Feb 26, 2006 09:16 AM
I didn't intend to introduce the TimeStar geometry in this list, but
since you ask I'll tell you a little about it.
All the geometries that Blavatsky poses in the "Stanzas"
of "The Secret Doctrine" are embedded in the TimeStar. I already
loved the "Proem" by the time I read the "Stanzas," but the
exquisite geometries of the "Stanzas" were a case of true love for
me. I initially called gave the TimeStar its name because of
correspondences with the ratios of the 260-day calendar of the Mayan
timekeeping system, comprised of 17 calendars.
TimeStar is a geometry of five interpenetrated tetrahedra that
embody and unify all prime geometries, which, coincidently, parallel
the numbers and ratios of the 260-day calendar used with the "proto-
Mayan" calendar. A stellated dodecahedron is easily recognizable in
it, but, when constructed as five interpenetrated dodecahedra, the
prime geometries work within the larger dodecahedron and
I've been working with this geometry and the proto-Mayan calendar
since 1993 and integrating spatial components with it in 1995. I
first identified the spatial components of the TimeStar
with the calendar was February 14, 1995.
I noticed suspicions comments about who is posting under what name
in this list when I first looked through it before joining, and it
looks like some hide-and-seek is being played here. I don't waste
my time on that sort of intrigue. I came here to discuss Blavatsky
and issues of The Theosophical Movement.
