Square Root of Two — 1.414 : 1 — the Square


The Square Side (AB)
= 1 Diagonal (AC)
= Sq Root of Two, 1.414


In sacred geometry, the square represents the physical world. It can be defined totally. If its side is one, its perimeter is exactly four, and its area is one square - exactly. The Square is yang.

The diagonal of a square whose side is 1 is √2, or 1.4142135624∞. This is what is called an "irrational number." While there are several ways to describe an irrational number, one definition is, "a decimal number that never ends, never repeats." Never ends? That takes it to infinity (∞) - into the spiritual. So while the square represents the physical, it has within it, a connection to the spiritual. All sacred geometrical figures have this connection.

The square was found was in the Holy of Holies (the back room) of Solomon's Temple (G,H,F,E). This was where the Hebrews kept the Ark of the Covenant and other most sacred treasures.

(The dimensions here are taken from the first part of the Ezekiel Chapter 41.)
