The term sacred geometry refers to geometry which is employed in the design of sacred architecture or art. The underlying belief is that certain geometric and mathematical ratios discovered from geometry also underlie music, cosmology and other observable features of the natural universe. This belief was held from ancient times through the Renaissance and influenced the construction of temples and churches and the creation of religious art.In sacred geometry, the torus is considered the first shape to emerge out of the genesis pattern. It governs many aspects of life including the human heart with its seven muscles that form a torus. The torus is literally around all life forms, all atoms, and all cosmic bodies such as planets, stars and galaxies. It is the primary shape in existence.
