All souls were created in the beginning and are
spiraling their way back to whence they came.
~ Edgar Cayce ~
All human progress is in a circle;
or, to use a more accurate and beautiful figure,
in an ascending spiral curve.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne ~
Moral law must be of divine origin,
because, even before the tablets of Moses,
it was already contained in the spiral, genetic code.
~ Salvador Dali ~
We do not go round a circle of existence.
That is an illusion, just as the cycling of
the planets and the stars is an illusion.
We move along a spiral track.
It is not quite the same journey from the
cradle to the grave each time.
Sometimes the differences are small.
Sometimes they are very important.
We set out each time on the same road
but along that road we have a choice of adventures.
~ J. B. Priestley ~ I Have Been Here Before
We have learned much, Siddhartha.
There still remains much to learn.
We are not going in circles, we are going upwards.
The path is spiral: we have already climbed many steps.
~ Hermann Hesse ~ Siddhartha
All those Philosophers believed more or less in animated
atoms, not in invisible specks of so-called 'brute' matter.
Rotatory motion was generated in their views, by larger
(read, more divine and pure) atoms forcing downwards other atoms,
the lighter ones being thrust simultaneously upward.
The esoteric meaning of this is the ever cyclic curve downward
and upward of differentiated elements through intercyclic phases
of existence, until each reaches again its starting point or birth place.
~ Helena Blavatsky ~ The Secret Doctrine
Spirals appear everywhere in our creation, in seashells, pine cones , animal horns and patterns of plant growth. They also appear in non-living natural objects such as galaxies and in non-living natural processes such as hurricanes or ocean waves.
Virtuous, the Roman architect and author of De Architecture, said, "Nature has designed the human body so that its members are duly proportioned to the frame as a whole." Studies show the proportions of phi (fibonacci) are found in man.
The average height for the navel of a man is .618 of the total body height. The same proportion is found between the bones of the human hand . The human body, including the head, has a Fibonacci five appendages attached to the torso. The hands and feet each have five fingers or toes. Our senses also number five, sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. The Fibonacci sequence has been found in the solar system. Planets with more than one moon have a Fibonacci correlation in the distance from the moons to the planet. A similar Fibonacci relationship holds true for the distance of the planets to the sun.
