Spirals: The Pattern of Existence

By Geoff Ward

Environment & nature, Hybrid & other, Psychology & philosophy, Religion & spirituality | Paperback


Here's how the universe shapes up. Geoff Ward shows how spiral energy fields are all around us and within us, patterning our very existence, from microcosm to macrocosm, determining structures from the tiny vortices of sub-atomic particles and the DNA molecule to the awesome 'island universes' of galaxies where stars are born and the conditions for life created. The protean spiral is nature's most favoured pattern of growth and most efficacious deployer of its energy - life-inducing, life-protecting and life-supporting: from the DNA molecule to the human heart where crucial fibres in the ventricles run in spiral lines. The spiral is also the age-old intuitive symbol of spiritual development and our identity with the universe found in societies the world over and reflected in serpent cults, dragon lore, shamanism, geomancy and ritual art and dance throughout history. This is the first book to reveal the full significance and prevalence of the spiral form in nature and human culture, embracing anthropology, molecular biology, zoology, astronomy, quantum physics, Jungian psychology, earth mysteries, religion, philosophy and the wisdom of the ancients. See spirals and you see the gods' autographs. The spiral is, indeed, the pattern of existence.
