GO­ING ROUND!

Sub­tle en­er­gies are pow­er­fully af­fected by ge­ome­tries. All an­cient cul­tures un­der­stood that form af­fects thought and thought af­fects well-be­ing. Words and pho­tog­ra­phy by Mark Abriel

Imag­ine you are on a jour­ney to a fu­ture time, and place. You ar­rive and see rounded struc­tures, and sooth­ing an­gles, in wood, stone and crystal, look­ing as if the dwellings them­selves were alive and part of the beauty of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment, for­est, streams, wa­ter­falls.

If you trav­elled to a dis­tant gal­axy and looked down from above, and saw rows of brick square build­ings, lit with flu­o­res­cent lights, along ruler-straight roads, where would you have ar­rived – a higher heav­enly realm, or a prison planet?

“…the straight line is god­less… It leads to the down­fall of mankind… It has be­come an ab­so­lute tyranny… The straight line is some­thing cow­ardly drawn with a rule,

with­out thought or feel­ing; it is a line which does not ex­ist in na­ture… – Frieden­sre­ich Hun­dert­wasser

Ev­ery­thing that is cre­ated re­flects the con­scious­ness of the cre­ators. In the case of ar­chi­tec­ture, we are sub­tly and not so sub­tly in­flu­enced by the forms we live in, af­fect­ing our life force en­ergy, our thought and our vi­tal­ity.

Ar­chi­tec­turally speak­ing, there are two things to think about – the form and what the form is made from. If the form and ma­te­rial are cho­sen cor­rectly (biores­o­nantly) to be­gin with, in­fra­struc­ture will be cre­ated for pos­i­tiv­ity and vi­tal well-be­ing for gen­er­a­tions to come.

So, what is the form, ac­cord­ing to the holis­tic view­point, that is most con­ducive to hap­pi­ness, phys­i­cal and emo­tional well-be­ing and free thought

(as well as be­ing the strong­est and most re­silient of struc­tural shapes)? The an­swer is… the cir­cle! Then there is the cir­cle’s an­tithe­sis – the foun­da­tion of mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture – the straight line and the 90° an­gle.

Sub­tle en­er­gies, which, ac­cord­ing to es­o­teric thought, make up our con­scious­ness, are pow­er­fully af­fected by ge­ome­tries. All an­cient cul­tures un­der­stood that form af­fects thought and thought af­fects well-be­ing.

The 90° an­gle re­stricts aware­ness. It leads to con­flicts, and dishar­monies. Pop­u­lar cul­ture terms, like ‘ think out­side the square’, ‘ don’t be a square’, ‘ don’t put me in a box’, show that the es­o­teric ef­fects of ge­ome­tries are felt by all.

I know from my own ex­pe­ri­ence that re­clin­ing in a house de­signed by a pos­i­tively in­spired ar­chi­tect – one with nat­u­ral curves and flows, in­cor­po­rat­ing the dome shape, that works with the

en­er­gies of rock and stone and for­est – is in­vig­o­rat­ing and rest­ful at the same time. I im­me­di­ately felt re­laxed and my blood pres­sure de­creased.

All res­i­dents found that sleep came nat­u­rally and with­out need for pills. Emo­tions be­came bal­anced. Anger, re­sent­ment and other neg­a­tive emo­tions faded away, to be re­placed by feel­ings of in­ner well-be­ing, strength and pos­i­tiv­ity.

Isn’t it time to start from the groud up lit­er­ally, and fig­u­ra­tively, to start again, and this time try some­thing that will sup­port true hap­pi­ness and in­ward con­nec­tion – go­ing round?! n
