About the author:
Scott Onstott is a teacher, writer, artist, and filmmaker. He has a degree in architecture from the University of California at Berkeley, has written or co-written 11 technical books on architectural design and visualization software. He is the creator of the Secrets in Plain Sight video series and author of Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture and Consciousness.
Illustrations from the Creator of Secrets In Plain Sight
This awe-inspiring treasury features 66 full-color illustrations by the creator of the Secrets In Plain Sight video series. Onstott's technical mastery of both vector and raster software combined with his skill in pattern recognition comes across in the many educational and thought-provoking conceptual illustrations included here. The images have a mysterious beauty that invites contemplation, philosophical inquiry and meditation; they will inspire you to perceive parallels between the universe outside of you and the universe within. A third of the illustrations feature the metrological wonders encoded in the Great Pyramid of Giza. You will enjoy Onstott's discoveries connecting everything from the cell to the human body, ancient temples, sacred sites, modern architecture, the Nile, art, math, physics, sport, religion, non-duality, the Sun and the planets, the star Sirius and the distance to the center of our galaxy. Art lovers, mathematicians, philosophers and anyone with an appreciation for imaginative visual storytelling will treasure this volume's illustrations and written descriptions.
“Like a mathematical Sherlock Holmes, Scott Onstott continues to unveil the Hidden Numeric Codes that construct our World.” -Mark Gray
“Scott has done it again. Though his mastery of geometry and metrology is unparalleled, this text is not just for number hounds and math geeks. Using empirical science, philosophy, mythology, spiritual concepts, synchronicity, creativity and play, Scott illuminates patterns within the architecture of both the heavens and the earth that grants us access into the deep mysteries of our universe, leading us to ask the most profound of questions, ‘Is man’s place in the cosmic drama merely a spectator sport or have we been given the tools, through the power and beauty of number and measure, to penetrate the enigma of life itself?’” -Marty Leeds
“Scott Onstott continues to impress and inspire. His insights are unique and profound, balanced by his humility and grace, and grounded in undeniable mathematical correspondences. Not only does he present what could easily be dense topics in an easy to understand manner, in doing so, he cuts to the core of his message. The ‘hidden order of the universe’ is a playful mystery that seemingly wants to be found, for, if it is hiding, it is doing so ‘in plain sight’. Looking through the geometrical and mathematical lens Onstott applies to the world, a kaleidoscope of wonder opens before us. His use of example and straight-forward approach make the infinite seem within reach, yet he also frees the science from being dry or stuffy by presenting all of this with a level of beauty and artistry that is rarely attempted, let alone accomplished.” -Alan Abbadessa-Green
“Many of us have become intuitively awake to nature’s Grand Pattern of order and proportion. Scott’s great contribution reveals this pattern in an explicit and beautiful way. He singlehandedly has mined gold from behind the veil and his contribution to the renaissance of philosophical geometry is simply awe inspiring.” -Geoff Fitzpatrick
“A very interesting collection of forms, shapes and numbers representing windows on the hitherto unknown but very intriguing intangible realms of our surrounding reality.” -Bert Janssen
