(Vesica Pisces)

Like the symbols in Genesis by Gudehus,


the symbol of the Vesica Pisces holds a simple shape, but it’s so complex in concept.

It can be traces through many stories, depictions. Through history, science, mathematics and philosophy. When all the stories and origins are combined and stripped of their terms, there is a mysterious story left. A story of basic sacred geometry, but also the story of time and space itself.

In the beginning, there was the infinite void. At this point, there were no dimensions, no space, no time.

There were also two options available, remain in a state of static omni presence or begin creating. The void would begin creating eventually, but as there is no such thing as time it is irrelevant to ask how long it took before this beginning of creating reality began.

Before the process of creation could begin, there has to be space. The only way to do so is by creating dimensions. From a single point, there are lines made to the front, back, left, right, up and down in equal measure.

This of course does not change the fact the void is infinite. Therefore it does not matter how far these lines are drawn. Also, the structures that are created are not material in any form, they are imaginary lines. It is a mere concept. To continue, there could only be one next step, create boundaries. This is because the lines, such like the void are infinite, and so relative movement of other “things” remain impossible. To define boundaries, the end of every point needs to be connected to every other point.

The beauty of this, is that the entire process is perfect. It is simply impossible to make a mistake, which is how the actions of god are often described. When all points are connected, what is made is an octahedron.

Which when viewed from the correct perspective reveals a hexagram, also known as the star of David. Now that boundaries have been defined, relative movement becomes possible.

In the bible, Eve was supposedly created from Adams rib. This seems irrelevant to current reality, but when compared to the developing process of this story it might suggest the possibility of the layeredness of the Bible and its hidden features. The octahedron is made up of purely straight lines. In sacred geometry straight lines are considered to be male and curved lines female. What is at this point, is a male shape. This is why the free Masons consider the male to be the generating principle.

Next the octahedron is spun in one full rotation around each of the three axes made before. Again, no mistake can be made as it does not matter which direction it is spun or in what order the axes are chosen, the end result will always be a perfect sphere.

This sphere is a purely female shape, or otherwise described; Eve has been created from Adam.

This perfect spherical membrane has only two options available. It can either remain static, or it can repeat the process it was in. The only difference is that there is now a reference point, this spherical membrane, to repeat the process.
It does not matter where it begins the process on this sphere, since all points are identical to each other. Again, it cannot make a mistake. When duplicating this sphere, on any point of its radius, what is made is a vescica pisces.

This shape is referred to in many ancient texts as the beginning of life. An opening of the circle through which it is possible to create. It is often called the Great Mother Godess and is compared to the vagina, as it has the same shape and is the shape through which every human is created.

The vescica pisces is also essentially the eye of Horus, the ancient Egyptian god. It isn’t just a symbol, it is also seen through out nature, in plants and shells and also in aspects of nature that cannot be seen through the naked eye but only through a microscope or through calculations.
In medieval art this shape is sometimes portrayed as the aureole around Christ or the Virgin Mary.

Arguably the most common connection to the Vesica Pisces is its usage as a symbol of Jesus Christ himself.
This is because the shape was used by early Christians as a secret symbol to communicate with their fellow believers in a time when practicing Christianity was punishable.
It is said they came up with this symbol by taking each first letter of the title Jesus Christ of God Son Savior in ancient Greek which spelled the word “ichthus” and means “fish.”

Some say the entire concept of the Christ is taken from previous ancient beliefs about the essential shape of the Vesica Pisces and its name “Pisces” which also means “fish” in Latin.
Like the void in the beginning of time, and space, it is impossible to know which phenomenon came first. What is clear is that it comes from the same origin, the understanding of this geometrical pattern through which everything we know to be true has been created. The terminology might differ, but the core remains the same. Life started from a shape, whether your story begins from a woman’s body, Adam and Eve, or the pure creation of the universe itself, you are right.

In command of the army of light and shade

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Photography is the art, science and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film. Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure.

When the lights are on behind a big black blanket it looks like a dusty night sky. It’s basically impossible to capture this effect, but still worth trying. The morning comes through the speakers, signaling that it’s time to move. As this decision kicks in, the doorbell rings, the body moves through darkness, stumbling down the stairs and landing with a bump! Opening the door, letting in the light, and a man with his sign. The man enters and the light comes on in the main room. He has a proposal concerning the future source of light, and one must agree to it.


In physics, a photon is an elementary particle, the quantum of light and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation, and the force carrier for the electromagnetic force. The effects of this force are easily observable at both the microscopic and macroscopic level, because the photon has no rest mass; this allows for interactions at long distances. Like all elementary particles, photons are currently best explained by quantum mechanics and will exhibit wave-particle duality, exhibiting properties of both waves and particles. For example, a single photon may be refracted by a lens or exhibit wave interference with itself, but also act as a particle giving a definite result when its position is measured.

The themes of the book can best be described with this written collage of close ups and full scale images, since the content of it isn’t words but images. The Israeli photographer Adi Nes was born in 1966 in Kiryat Gat, studied in Jerusalem and is now living in Tel-Aviv. His cultural background may evoke religious associations, and his works are also filled with references to iconic Christian imagery of especially Caravaggio. This can be seen in the clearly staged compositions of the photos and in the use of light and shade that create a high contrast, an effect known in painting as chiaroscuro. Furthermore he is very interested in depicting masculine stereotypes and situations, and does so in photographic series of prisoners or soldiers.

The command places a vertical band against a richly textured atmosphere. But here the creamy yellow vertical band separates two elaborately textured zones of colour. God’s initial Command “Let there be light” led to a sequence of creative acts of division: first darkness from light.

For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia.
