Now here’s an interesting drawing from Leonardo Da Vinci. What he is showing in this sketch is that the human body ‘squares the circle’. When man stretches his arms and holds them horizontally, man’s body will perfectly fit into the square. On the other hand, when he spreads his legs and raises his arms as in the sketch, man’s body can be perfectly circumscribed by a circle. The circumference of the square ‘equals’ that of the circle. A lot has been written about this sketch alone, it contains a whole lot of hidden sacred geometry. We will not go into all the details here, but I want to show you some very amazing things. Ancient wisdom, the Hermetic tradition tells us that the human body can be regarded as a blue print for the universe by means of all the ratios that are found within the body. This may indeed be true. Let’s have a
look at the following picture:

This is the same picture as above, in the picture there are now two red circles added. The biggest red circle fits perfectly and is inscribed by the square. The smaller red circle’s is centred between the outer circle and the inner red circle and
tangentially touches both. Much to our surprise, the upper red circle represents the moon and the lower red circle represents the Earth! In mathematical terms: The ratio of the diameter of the smaller red circle to the bigger red circle r / R equals the ratio of the diameter of the moon to the diameter of the Earth! Now let’s prove it:

Radius of the moon : r
Radius of the Earth : R
Side of the square is : 2R
The perimeter of the square is : 8 R
Radius of the outer circle is : r + R
The circumference of the outer circle is : 2 π ( r + R )

Now ‘squaring the circle’ makes the perimeter of the square equal to the circle:
8 R = 2 π ( r + R ) <=>
8 R - 2 π R = 2 π r <=>
R (8 – 2 π) = 2 π r <=>
r / R = (8 – 2 π) / 2 π = (4 – π) / π
Earth radius = 6,370,973 m
Moon radius = 1,738,000 m
Moon to Earth ratio = r / R = 0.27279977
r / R = (4 – π) / π = 0.273239544 (π = 3.14159265)

Quod Erat Demonstrandum!

There is another mysterious relation to be discovered in the sketch of the Vitruvian man by Leonardo Da Vinci. The Great Pyramid at the Giza plateau in Egypt called after the pharaoh that is supposedly buried there named Khufu (Cheops in Greek), holds a perfect geometrical relation to the squaring of the circle and the Vitruvian man as depicted by Leonardo Da Vinci!

Great Pyramid at Giza in relation to the Vitruvian man

The triangle in the picture is the exact geometrical proportion of the Great Pyramid at the Giza Plateau near Cairo, Egypt. The angles between the base and the apex (top) of the pyramid are exactly 51 degrees and 51 seconds. (51º 51’).
The Great Pyramid and in fact the complete layout of the Giza plateau with all its pyramids, sacred temples and the sphinx contains a lot of hidden sacred geometry of which we will reveal more in this book. The point I want to make here is that the Egyptians were aware of the art of sacred geometry and how it relates to the universe, as the Giza plateau and in particular the Great Pyramid proves.
