It has just been reported today on the news that 50% of the British population do not understand basic maths! I am the first to admit I am not brilliant when it comes to sums, but I can do simple decimal points, fractions, percentages etc. In fact most of my maths is calculated in my head as ‘approximate’ figures which when worked out the ‘correct’ way turn out to be pretty damn close. I have even been known to dream sums, and on waking find out they are correct, even though I had not worked it out in my dream. Now where is that coming from?
As Carol Vaudeman says, maths is not just a subject but a language which penetrates nearly every aspect of our daily lives. You cannot fully understand the harmonics of music, for instance, the intricacies of light or sound, any of the modern sciences or technology without it. As I am discovering with my crop circle research, ancient geometry and the understanding of universal glyph signals, contain many layers of symbolic meaning and goes to the very root of our understanding of the universe. Some of the major Philosophers have also been the greatest mathematicians, such as the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, who have all been concerned with the mysteries of the universe and our place in the bigger scheme of things, attempting to explain it with scientific calculations and formulae.
I certainly may not be able to explain it all in mathematical terms, but I can appreciate the beauty of the geometry and do know that there are many more dimensions that we are not able to fully explain just yet at this moment in our evolution. However, I do feel that time for understanding is getting very close indeed, and in the meantime, we still some beautiful imagery to enjoy.
