Two circles combined to make what is known as the Vesica Pisces (fish bladder). This is that small seed shape in the midst of the circles and is the most important construction in sacred geometry. It is sometimes called the birth canal of the universe. Then two larger arcs come together to make what I call the House of Gold because it has the golden ratio (1,618…) within the midst of its arced walls. Then taking one of the central distances (line) creates a perfect division of the House of Gold into six parts as the six circles show this. I was very excited to work this simple but lost construction out and bring it back from the dead 3 years ago. Grab a compass and try to construct it.
The germ of life is the first full construction that is taught by Justin The Cirler. This is a magical little construction that naturally falls out with seven simple steps. This can be done with just rusty compass (compass that does not change size) in seconds. Ancient peoples would have come discovered this very quickly and would adored if for its organizational properties and simplicity.
