Much that is complex and mysterious in mathematics, geometry and music has been studied in an attempt to fi nd connections to the divine, the spiritual and other unworldly aspects of the imagination. So it is no surprise to fi nd religious and spiritual ideas associated with geometry in any survey of the history of art, literature, fabric design, architecture and in general in everything constructed by human hands. Humankind’s longstanding desire to prove the value of existence through sacredness and reason in the universe, to show that within them lies the cosmos, drove them to build temples as sanctuaries for the souls of the dead. Th is is evident in ancient artefacts and structures such as the design of pyramids in Egypt and Mexico.
