    Masaru Emoto has been visually documenting molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques. He freezes droplets of water and then examines them under a dark field microscope that has photographic capabilities. When the words “thank you” were taped to a bottle of distilled water, the frozen crystals had a similar shape to the crystals formed by water that had been exposed to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”- music composed out of gratitude to the man it was named for. …

    Saint Bede the Venerable, Saint Isidore of Sevilla, Saint Abbo of Fleury. Cosmography, Walters MS W73. 1100s.

    Created in 12th century England, this manuscript was intended to be a scientific textbook for monks, designed as a compendium of cosmographical knowledge. The complex diagrams that accompany the texts help to illustrate this knowledge, and include visualizations of the heavens and earth, seasons, winds, tides, and the zodiac, as well as demonstrations of how these things relate to man. Most of the diagrams are rotae, or wheel-shaped schemata, favored throughout the Middle Ages for the presentation of scientific and cosmological ideas. Moreover, the circle, considered the most perfect shape and a symbol of God, was seen as conveying the cyclical nature of time as well as the logic, order, and harmony of the created universe.

    Hevajra Panchadaka Mandala. The Combined Glorious Hevajra Five Lords with 49 Deities from the Vajrapanjara Tantra. Sakya Lineage, Tibet. 1400s.

    Within the center of the two-dimensional circular diagram representing the top view of a three-dimensional celestial palace and surroundings are five smaller square mandalas each containing a form of Shri Hevajra with nine deities. In the central square is Akshobhya-Hevajra embracing the consort Vajra Nairatmya (Selfless One). They stand atop four corpses within the flames of pristine awareness surrounded by eight goddesses.

    The floor of the celestial palace is divided into four colours: red, green, white and yellow. Four empowerment vases adorn the four squares of the intermediate directions. The elaborate lintels above each of the four doors (‘T’ shaped) are constructed of four tiered steps, red, blue, green, and yellow, topped with a Dharma wheel and two reclining deer with a silk canopy above. 

    The outer circle containing eight sets of various figures is the ring of the eight great charnel grounds: Gruesome, Frightful with Skulls, Adorned with a Blazing Garland, Dense Jungle, Fiercely Resounding, Forest of the Lord, Dark and Terrible and Resounding with the Cries Kili Kili. They are filled with corpses, fires, chaityas, yogis, nagas, wild animals and wrathful worldly deities. The final ring is composed of the multi-coloured fires of pristine awareness completely enveloping the entire Hevajra Pancadaka Mandala.
