The Unification of the Dichotomies and the Fractal Drive Toward Novelty
by Jason Rees
This image rests on several fundamental assumptions basic to all sacred geometry (that
the circle represents the divine, for example).
Here SIX is the central number, being the unification of two and three (two representing
the foundations of the physical world -which itself is represented as four or the square- and three, which represents the
divine -the trinity; me, myself, and I; past, present, and future).
The image is meant to portray both a balance and interwoveness of the dichotomies (black
and white, light and dark, big and small, male and female, human and divine, good and evil, intuition and reason, just to
name a few), and the ways that one creates another, definines it, and intertwines with it (in the interlocking circles) .
This is the "unification of the dichotomies."
In the center of the image, again, we have the light and dark repeated with the six-pointed
star as the central figure. The six pointed star is significant for many reasons and is a particularly beloved symbol
of the Jewish faith. Radiating out from the star there is the fractal repetition of a shape that is implied by the interaction
of the circles (the dichotomies). These represent the temporal push outward from the One toward novelty, the fractal
nature of the universe, and are suggestive of the natural world (in their likeness to branches or roots). This is the
"fractal drive toward novelty."
