This article deals with the Flower of Life in real-world references. For the same-named flower in fiction, see Flower of Life (fiction).

The Flower of Life (FOL) is a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter. Image File history File links Flower-of-Life-small. ...

The FOL symbol is over six thousand years old.[1] Throughout human history, philosophers, artists, and architects around the world have known the FOL for its perfect form, proportion, and harmony.[2] It is considered to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time.[3][4][5][6] In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all mankind, believed by some to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.[7] Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. ... The Akashic Records (Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning sky, space or aether) are said to be a collection of mystical knowledge that is stored in the aether; i. ...


There are many religious beliefs associated with the FOL, and this article provides a concise overview of only some of those beliefs. For example, depictions of the five Platonic Solids are found within the symbol of Metatron's Cube, which may be derived from the FOL pattern. These platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs.[8] A Platonic solid is a convex polyhedron whose faces all use the same regular polygon and such that the same number of faces meet at all its vertices. ... Metatron (Hebrew מטטרון or מיטטרון), is the name of an angel in Judaism and some branches of Christianity. ... Geometry (from the Greek words Ge = earth and metro = measure) is the branch of mathematics first introduced by Theaetetus dealing with spatial relationships. ...


Another notable example of that which may be derived from the FOL is the Tree of Life. This has been an important symbol of sacred geometry for many people from various religious backgrounds. Particularly, the teachings of the Kabbalah have dealt intricately with the Tree of Life.[9] The Tree-of-Life is a fictional plant (the ancestor of yams, with similar appearance and taste) in Larry Nivens Known Space universe, for which all Hominids have an in-built genetic craving. ...

Significant meaning may be found by those viewing even the most basic components of the Flower of Life's design. The stages which construct the Seed of Life are said to represent the seven days of Creation, in which God created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. Within these stages, among other things, are the symbols of the Vesica Piscis (an ancient religious symbol) and Borromean rings (which represents the Holy Trinity).[10] [11][12] The Flower of Life (click image for links to further images). ...

Sacred geometry

Main article: Sacred geometry

Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. According to this belief system, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred because in contemplating them one is contemplating the origin of all things. By studying the nature of these forms and their relationship to each other, one may seek to gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic and mystical laws of the universe.[71][72] Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. ...

In the 13th Century, a Cabalist's group from France succeeded, through geometric interpretation, in dividing the entire Hebrew alphabet in its correct order using the Seed of Life. The resulting alphabet was remarkably similar to that of the Religious sage Rashi who wrote his commentaries on the Old Testament at that time in France.

Spherical octahedron

The first step in forming the Seed of Life (or Flower of Life) is to begin with a circle (as in a 2D model) or a sphere (as in a 3D model).[86] A 2D geometric model is a geometric model of an object as two-dimensional figure, usually on the Euclidean or Cartesian plane. ... The space we live in is three-dimensional space. ...


According to some religious beliefs, the first step in building the Seed of Life was the creation of the octahedron by a divine "creator" (or "god"). The next step was for the creator to spin the shape on its axes. In this way a sphere is formed (see diagram). The creator's consciousness is said to exist within the sphere and the only thing that physically exists is the membrane of the sphere itself. This "first step" is not to be confused with the "first day," the latter being in reference to the seven days of creation.

Vesica Piscis

Main article: Vesica piscis

The Vesica Piscis is formed from two intersecting circles of the same diameter, where the center of each circle is on the circumference of the opposite circle.[90][91] Its design is one of the simplest forms of sacred geometry. It has been depicted around the world at sacred sites, most notably at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury, England [92], and has been the subject of mystical speculation at several periods of history.[93] One of the earliest known occurrences of the Vesica Piscis, and perhaps first, was among the Pythagoreans, who considered it a holy figure.[94] Construction diagram of the Vesica Piscis The vesica piscis (or ichthys) is a symbol made from two circles of the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each circle lies on the circumference of the other. ...

According to some religious beliefs, the Vesica Piscis represents the second stage in the creation of the Seed of Life, in that it was constructed by "the Creator" (or "God") through the creation of a second Spherical Octahedron joined with the first. It is said that the Creator's consciousness began inside the first sphere and journeyed outside the surface of that sphere to create the second. Purportedly in reference to this, the Old Testament refers to "the spirit of the Creator floating upon the face of the waters."[95][96] Note: Judaism commonly uses the term Tanakh. ...


Continuing with these beliefs, God is said to have created light through the creation of the second sphere (or Vesica Piscis). "Let there be light" is a relevant excerpt from the Old Testament. The pattern of the Vesica Piscis is said to be a geometric formula which represents the electromagnetic spectrum of light.

The Vesica Piscis has been called a symbol of the fusion of opposites and a passageway through the world’s apparent polarities.[101] It has also been noted as the geometry for the human eye.[102] This may have a connection to the symbol of the Eye of Providence, which is said to represent God.[103] It is also known to be the basis for the Ichthys fish, which is a Christian symbol representing "The Son," Jesus Christ.[104] The Eye of Providence floating above an unfinished pyramid on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States. ...

The "Tripod of Life" (also known as "Borromean rings") is formed from a third circle being added to the Vesica Piscis, where the third circle's center point is placed at the intersection of the first two circles' circumferences.[105][106] In physiology, the term "Tripod of Life" represents the three organs of the heart, lungs, and brain; so called because their united action is necessary for the sustenance of life.[107][108] To some, it represents the mind, body, and spirit.[109] Most notably, in (Christian) religion, the Tripod of Life symbolizes the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of the Holy Trinity.[110][111][112] In mathematics, the Borromean rings consist of three topological circles which are linked despite the fact that no two of them are linked, i. ...

Main article: Torus

A basic one dimensional depiction of the "Tube Torus" shape is formed by ratcheting the Seed of Life and duplicating the lines in its design. In Physics, the Tube Torus is considered a basic structure in the study of Vortex forms. Some say the Tube Torus contains a code of vortex energy that describes light and language in a unique way, perhaps as something of an Akashic Record.[113][114]

Egg of Life

The "Egg of Life" symbol is composed of seven circles taken from the design of the Flower of Life.[115][116]


The shape of the Egg of Life is said to be the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in its first hours of creation.[117][118]

Fruit of Life

The "Fruit of Life" symbol is composed of 13 circles taken from the design of the Flower of Life.[120][121]


The Fruit of Life is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure, life form, and everything in existence.[122][123] It contains the geometric basis for the delineation of Metatron's Cube, which brings forth the platonic solids.

Metatron's Cube

The Fruit of Life pattern contains the basis for the layout of Metatron's Cube. The Fruit of Life has thirteen circles. If each circle's centre is considered a "node", and each node is connected to each other node with a single line, a total of seventy-eight lines are created, forming a type of cube. Within this cube, many other shapes can be found, including two-dimensionally flattened versions of the five platonic solids.

In early Kabbalist scriptures, Metatron supposedly forms the cube from his soul. This cube can later be seen in Christian art, where it appears on his chest or floating behind him. Metatron's cube is also considered a holy glyph, and was often drawn around an object or person to ward off demons and satanic powers. This idea is also present in alchemy, in which the cube was favoured as a containment circle or creation circle. [129][130]

Metatron's Cube is a template that delineates the Platonic solids. The Platonic solids are five structures that are crucial because they are the building blocks of organic life. These five structures are found in minerals, animated and organic life forms, sound, music, language, etc. [131][132][133][134][135][136]


In Geometry, a Platonic solid is a convex regular polyhedron. These are the three-dimensional analogs of the regular polygons. There are precisely five such figures (shown below). The name of each figure is derived from the number of its faces: respectively 4, 6, 8, 12 and 20. They are unique in that the sides, edges and angles are all congruent.[137][138] Table of Geometry, from the 1728 Cyclopaedia. ... Look up Convex set in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Due to their aesthetic beauty and symmetry, the Platonic solids have been a favorite subject of geometers for thousands of years.

The symbol of the Tree of Life may be derived from the Flower of Life. The Tree of Life is a mystical concept, a metaphor for common descent, and a motif in various world theologies and philosophies.[146] This mystical concept has historically been adopted by some Christians, Jews, Hermeticists, and pagans.[147] Along with the Seed of Life it is believed to be part of the geometry that parallels the cycle of the fruit tree. This relationship is implied when these two forms are superimposed upon each other.[148] Image File history File links Tree-of-Life_Flower-of-Life_Stage. ...
