Modern science has proven that these patterns are the very molecular shapes that form the basis of all life. These shapes or patterns were universal and governed the way in which the world replicated itself. These universal laws or patterns were absolute and static, they did not change or alter over time or space. This is evidenced by the vast number of cultures from around the world that all recognized the sacredness of these specific patterns and geometric shapes. --Caroline Nettle
