Sacred art is not necessarily made of images ...it may be no more than the quite silent exteriorization
of a contemplative state.... It reflects no ideas but transforms the surroundings by having them share an equilibrium whose
center of gravity is unseen.... ornamentation with abstract forms enhances contemplation through its unbroken rhythm and less
interweaving.... Continuity of interlacement invites the eye to follow it, and vision is transformed into rhythmic experience
accompanied by the intellectual satisfaction given by the geometric regularity of the whole....
A universal beauty showed its face:
The invisible deep–fraught significants,
Here sheltered behind form’s invisible screen,
Uncovered to him their deathless harmony
And the key to the wounder-book of common things.
In their uniting law stood up revealed
The multiple measures of the up lifting force,
The lines of the World –Geometer’s technique,
The enhancements that uphold the cosmic web
And the magic underlying simple shapes.
Sri Aurobindo Grose
Education is the instruction of the intellect in the laws of Nature, under which name I include
not merely things and their forces, but men and their ways; and the fashioning of the affections and of the will into an earnest
and loving desire to move in harmony with those laws.
Thomas Henry Huxley
