The Buddha, Jewish Merkabah, geometry and The Love Knot

In Judaism the word 'Merkabah' means "chariot", and is derived from the consonantal root, "r-k-b" which simply means "to ride". It is in reference to the Old Testament book of Ezekiel that addresses the throne or chariot of G-d as the four-wheeled vehicle driven by four "living creatures that each have four wings and four faces --a man, lion, ox, and an eagle.

In the top two illustrations above you can see two tetrahedra. Inside both is the Mereon Trefoil knot.

In the third image, bottom left, you see the two interpenetrating; the Merkebah of Mystical Judaism that is the 3D representation of the 2D Star of David. However, it also has a deep history, symbolically rooted in many religion and cultures, including Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam. In mathematics is is used to symbolize the G2 root system.

However, there are a number of interesting facts that I love.

First, is how the head of the Buddha appears to form out of the Mereon Trefoil Knot exactly as a Thangka painter is required to draw it.

Second is that this knot, shown in the 2nd drawing, is virtually identical to the Tibetan Auspicious knot, the difference is being that the Auspicious knot is locked into the plane, which the Mereon Trefoil is 4D.

Third, in the final image it is clear that the Buddha's head (not the picutre)is squarely placed in the center of a Cube that is defined by the tetrahedral pair.

I find it meaningful that the Mereon Matrix dynamically unites 5 Cubes, each rotated around the other at 44.4 degrees and that the term 'Merkabah' is used 44 times in the Old Testament.

Ten Tetrahedral define 5 Cubes...

2 tetrahedron define the Merkabah & the head of the Buddha

So what is the purpose of this entry into the Dia.BLOG.ue?

With all the insanity in the world due to religious strife, what what what might be possible if a group of individuals formed a group and willingly celebrated their differences understanding that NOTHING is different? What could we accomplish if we agreed to celegrate our Unity? What keeps us from accepting a real invitation to make true connections?
