Sacred Geometry

School of Undergraduate Studies BIS 1309 3.00

Similar mathematical patterns emerge in the natural world and human creations across time and discipline. The Fibonacci sequence, the Golden Mean, and fractals appear over and over again in plants, crystals, coastlines, animals, religion, art, architecture, music, literature, economics, etc. Through readings, independent research, and field work, creative and geometrical exploration students will learn how to identify these types of patterns in the surrounding world and to create them. The recurrence of these themes imbues a timeless, sacred quality that begs the question, “What do they mean?” This class also explores the underlying principles, such as chaos theory and cymatics, that seem to generate these patterns and ponders their significance in historical and scientific dialogue.
