Math for Mystics; from the Fibonacci Sequence to Luna’s Labyrinth to the
Golden Section and other Secrets of Sacred Geometry, by Renna Shesso.
book makes math, and especially sacred math, easy to understand. It begins with the simplest lunar and planetary math and
then tackles the most enigmatic numerical esoterica such as Platonic Solids, the Golden Section, Luna’s Labyrinth, and
– Benjamin Franklin’s favorite – Magical Squares, something like 17th – century Sudoku. Whether you
want to understand that Fibonacci Sequence from Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code or just have a passion for cool number
games, this book is for you!
“Much of what we know as math comes to us directly for early astronomer magi
who needed to be able to describe and record what they saw in the night sky. Everyone needed math: whether you were the queen’s
astrologer or a farmer determining the right time for planting, numbers mattered. Mistake a numerical pattern of petals and
you could poison yourself. Lose the rhythm of a sacred dance or the meter of a ritually told story and the threads that hold
life together would unravel. Ignore the celestial clock of equinoxes and solstice and you’d risk being caught short
of food for the winter” – from the book. $16.95
