The idea that humanities journey is linear is a relatively new perception of the passage of time. This understanding postulates a journey from point A to point B, that has inextricably altered the way we view and live life. What exactly prompted the alteration is often a topic of debate and discussion.
My observation is that this linear view dismisses eons of native cultures that viewed their existence as cyclical. Upon contemplation, I realized that both views merged together to create a spiral could more accurately define life's journey.
The spirals winding form simultaneously accommodates a line and a circle thus making it the most accurate model for the journey of life. With each revolution of the spiral, growth and change is expressed.
There is a plethora of information on spirals from both modern and ancient times. As Plato stated, "There is nothing new under the sun."
In modern times, the Fibonacci/-Golden mean ratio, states that growth in nature occurs in spiral formations. In ancients times this ratio was known as Gods Fingerprint or the Sacred Spiral.
The spiral appears in the microcosm and the macrocosm of our universe. Its shape has an energy force strong enough to propel our galaxy across the cosmos, yet delicate enough to be engraved in our fingertips.
It is the perfect blueprint for evolution and its form is a sturdy yet delicate dilemma that beautifully embodies the expression that "the only constant in life is change."
