Metatron’s Cube 3D knitting

This blog post is about an idea/invention of mine about an educational/research toy/tool. This blog post assumes that you know what the Seed of Life, the Flower of Life and Metatron’s Cube are. If you don’t, please read the two corresponding articles in Wikipedia.

Knowledge about such matters is paramount. Also, it is hidden from most people. Knowledge such as this leads to the ultimate knowledge that is hidden from us: what was the purpose of the Pyramids; what the Pyramids were used for. To cut a long story short, the Pyramids were used to transform an ordinary person like me to a God. God here meaning immortal and with great ability to travel between “dimensions”, to understand the Physics of the universe and to have astonishing healing powers. Yes, immortality is achievable by technical means alone. The Pyramids made that possible and more to the lucky ones who used them. The Pyramids unleashed the full power of the brain and body. For example, not only did they energize the chakras of the person, they went beyond that and span the geometric solids that the aura is structured from, thus transforming the person to a God.

The problem is, although the masonic and other cult symbolism has until today conveyed these truths that far, the full meaning of the symbolism evades even the people that secretly use it! Yes, the full truth has escaped even the people that originally and subsequently tried to hide it. Thus, not only did they make a disservice to humanity, they also made a disservice to themselves.

OK, I digress. These matters belong to other blog posts and books. This blog post has only to do with the study of Metatron’s Cube and with a toy that I coined that may help in this study. I will just digress a little bit more only to explain why the study of Metatron’s Cube matters.

Metatron’s Cube consists of 13 circles of equal radius in a specific pattern. The center of each of the circles is connected to the center of each other circle by a straight line segment. Obviously, we would need 12 + 11 + … + 2 + 1 = 78 line segments to do that, but since most of the lines overlap due to the placement/pattern of the circles, thankfully we need far fewer lines.

Metatron’s Cube can be used as the blueprint of everything, or so people, who have studied it extensively, say. For one, the five Platonic Solids can be seen that are constructed from its lines. And they are the blueprint of everything. Also, there are many other uses and views of Metatron’s Cube’s a blueprint or as a producer of elementary building blocks. I would like to learn about them, but have not found relevant material so far. But this is a fascinating field: The different ways that Metraton’s Cube can show how our reality can be produced and structured.

OK, now I am going to write about my toy and its use. I will tell you how it can be constructed and how it can be used and its usefulness and purpose will become apparent. But to give you a preview of its purpose, it does way with the 2D pattern of the lines and instead promotes the use of 3D. Indeed, Metatron’s Cube is a 2D construct. My toy is a 3D construct that promotes the use of three dimensions. Of course, we can no longer have a piece of paper to draw. My toy replaces the 13 centers of the circles with 13 straight rods that are vertical to the circles’ plane and  each rod passes through one circle center. And instead of drawing line segments from a center to another center, we use knitting thread or other pieces of thread to connect a rod with another rod. But here is the important part: we should have one piece of thread between any two rods, this piece is tight and straight and can begin and end on whatever point on the rods we wish (not only on the circles and centers plane).

I will explain everything in the following paragraphs, but you might wonder why I came up with such a construct. What reason does it fulfill? Well, Metatron’s Cube is a 2D construct. If it was intended from the start to be a 2D construct, then my toy may not have much purpose. But who is to say that Metatron’s Cube is simply two dimensional? Perhaps we see Metatron’s Cube as a 2D construct because we see it drawn on paper. What if it was truly meant to be a 3D construct from the get-go? My tool can help us find out if this is the case. How?  Well, by creating lines that exist in 3D and also construct the Platonic Solids in 3D, we can find out if indeed the Metatron’s Cube can be used in this way. It has been said that the dodecahedron and the icosahedron do not perfectly fit the Metatron’s Cube pattern. What if they perfectly fit a 3D one? Also, apart from the Platonic Solids, there are other ways the Metatron’s Cube can provide elementary constructs. What if these constructs are better visualized in 3D?

OK, let us see what my toy looks like. It has a rigid 3D structure. The basic structure is the 13 circles of the original Metatron’s Cube, as follows:


This structure can be made to stand vertically, with the help of three vertical bars and a horizontal base, as follows:


But each circle is not empty or void. Each circle has a horizontal rod passing perpendicularly through its center. In order for the rod to remain horizontal and parallel to the floor, it can be suspended from the circle as follows:


Thus, when we see the whole construct before us, 13 horizontal rods are trying to poke our eyes out. This is why I added a blue ball at each end of each rod (as shown in the last image), to avoid the user of this construct having her eyes pierced by the rods.

All that remains now is for someone to get some thread and start “knitting”. Whereas in Metatron’s Cube, the centers of the circles were connected, here we can connect a rod withonother rod, at whatever point onto each rod we want. We can do the connections by turning the thread once around the rod and tightening the loop, as shown in the image below:


We can also insert “friction rings” where the arrows point, in order for the loop to remain at the point on the rod that we wish it to remain.

Please note that I presented this construct as an object that stands vertically, with the rods protruding horizontally and thus we should look at it horizontally. This construct can also be made to stand horizontally, the rods protruding vertically and then we should look at it from above (as it is standing on the table).

We can use threads of different colors and thicknesses or not. We can play and experiment, study and create art with this construct. Since the rods have thickness and we turn the thread around them, the lines we create do not emanate from the center of the rods, so what we “knit” with this toy/construct is not perfect. But it can give us insight and help us build a prototype of a geometric concept, thought or idea we may have.
