We live in a remarkable time, when deeply hidden spiritual knowledge & practices are now being publicly released. Great Spiritual Traditions around the world are making public much of their formerly secret knowledge, including in recent years the Mayan, Tibetan, Taoist and European Rosicrucian traditions. These world traditions are the caretakers of our birthright: our shared human legacy of accumulated spiritual wisdom.
Perhaps the most fundamental— and essential — part of this spiritual knowledge is to know the actual patterns, the energy blueprints, which everything in creation is based on. Everything is based on a specific pattern; knowing that pattern unlocks the ability to make full practical use of it. This is true whether speaking of patterns of higher spiritual realities, psychological and behavior patterns, energetic patterns, or actual structures manifested in the physical world.
Only through our knowing these spiritual and energetic patterns can we achieve our full potential: to become conscious, responsible creator beings in the world. In recent times, the term we use to describe these core spiritual, energetic, and physical blueprint patterns is Sacred Geometry.
New Science and Sacred Geometry PatternsI became aware of Sacred Geometry myself through an unusual route: becoming an Instructor in the U.S. Marine Corps, in the field of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare Survival in the early 1980's. At that time I became aware that behind all the systems of modern technology, all the forces of Nature, were specific patterns which were being avidly studied by both scientists and by governments. Alongside of the usual mathematical studies of modern science, there exists a thriving sub-culture of advanced scientists studying pure structural patterns as a key to everything from Nuclear Physics to Human Biology. I was surprised to find studies commissioned by Governments, and even by NATO, that analyzed the pure pattern information of natural systems.
It became apparent to me that much of modern cutting-edge technology was coming out of these pattern studies. In Nano-technology — the new field in which human beings are now able to create any kind of matter, by creating structures at the molecular level — researchers were unsuccessful in their experiments until they studied the pure geometric patterns identified by the modern genius Buckminster Fuller. In gratitude, they named their early discoveries after him, such as the "Buckyball."
The foundation of all Life and all Creation is this geometric language in nature, which modern science is using to tap the powers of Nature in modern technology. All modern technology is based on the twin variables of SHAPE and MATERIAL; different shapes create different energetic effects, just as different materials offer a full spectrum of different useful energy qualities (energy expresses differently through metal electrical conductors than it does through wood, for example).
One key to understand this hidden energy science of Sacred Geometry is: Shape is really a pattern of energy movement frozen in space, a pattern which nature gives a specific power. 
As I saw how important this geometric language of nature is for modern science, it became obvious that some spiritual traditions have known parts of this information for thousands of years. Legends of ancient high cultures such as the Egyptian Temple Science indicate how advanced — and how secret — this information was in earlier times.
Modern Technology and Medicine is based on only Fragments of Sacred Geometry
After completing my Marine Corps contract, I then earned my Ph.D. in International Studies. During that time I studied the inner spiritual initiation teachings of over a dozen great world traditions, and identified the specific Sacred Geometry forms they knew and used. Some patterns were known and used by every one of these traditions, while other patterns seemed to be safeguarded by a single group. For instance, the knowledge of the power of the number 19 was considered critical in Ancient Egypt; today only some groups in esoteric Islam appear to have fully inherited this knowledge.
What was truly amazing to me, was how most of the patterns known and used in modern technology were also clearly known and used in ancient cultures. Over a period of 20 years, I was able to create Sacred Geometry courses in which I illustrate the large number of one-to-one matches between patterns used in spiritual traditions, and those used in modern technology.
One little-known example: the same geometric form known and kept very secret by the Greeks over 2500 years ago (because they said it could cause great destruction if misused) is shown in modern declassified military documents to be the exact same shape used to create the world's first atomic bomb.
Similarly, Sacred Geometry patterns taught in the ancient schools as being related to Alchemy are the same as those found in modern technology to transmute chemical poisons to be harmless, even lethal toxins like Nerve Gas; these same alchemical patterns frozen in matter can destroy pollution, and are even present in your car's catalytic converter.
As great as the achievements of modern technology are, they are creating pollution and death in many cases. Modern science has rediscovered many of the patterns — blueprints of creation — known to the world's great spiritual traditions, but only in materialistic fragments; it desperately needs the holistic understanding and greater context the spiritual traditions have regarding these patterns, in order to create a technology which is healing and life-positive.
The practical energy science used in the ancient spiritual traditions could create life-giving effects in a way described today as "magic" or "miraculous"; however, to paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, 'Magic is what we call any science we do not understand.' This science was based on the knowledge of precise geometric energy blueprints within and behind all things, and the energy functions of these patterns.
In Ancient Times, the Initiates of this great knowledge were called THE MASTERS OF THE NET.
Part 2: The "Masters of the Net" Sacred Geometry Initiation
Modern Physics teaches that the essence of creation is not Matter (despite what you may have learned in school); it is actually a flexible geometric energy grid behind matter, the "Matrix of Space-Time." Matter actually warps this background space-time grid; you can find this illustrated metaphorically in many Physics texts, by a picture of a squared grid printed on a rubber sheet, distorted by the weight of a bowling ball on top of it (which represents, for instance, a planet distorting the space time matrix.)
This same energetic Matrix of Creation was known in ancient times, when it was called THE NET. Similarly to how it is shown in modern physics texts, this NET of creation was shown as a squared grid, often metaphorically as a physical Net being used to catch birds or fish inside of it. Such illustrations were extremely common in ancient Egypt.
In cultures all over the world, the spiritual knowledge of this energetic NET (the geometric matrix both behind all of creation and within every created being) was one of the highest levels of their Temple Science and Spiritual Initiations. For instance, in India it was referred to as the "Jeweled Net of Indra", and was part of a detailed initiation system which included learning to activate the power potential (Shakti) within geometric forms in the 'Yantra' practice. In Egypt, the Initiates of this knowledge were known directly by the name The Masters of the Net.
Below is a very short introduction to the appearance of the NET initiation in a series of Western cultures, leading up to the story of how this knowledge has appeared in a new form in Modern Egypt. Each of these cultures has a wealth of knowledge and practices which go beyond the brief descriptions below. 
Egyptian spiritual texts and Temple wall illustrations are filled with explicit references to the Net, and to the Initiation process of becoming a Master of these geometric energy patterns. Human Initiates are shown in Temple illustrations learning how to use Nets to "Catch and Cast Magic." The spiritual beings who serve the Initiator of the Egyptian Culture, called the "Baboons of Thoth", are shown casting their Nets into the water to catch fish; the hieroglyphic texts which accompany the illustrations give the true meaning of these Temple teachings. Their hieroglyphic texts refer to uninitiated human beings "caught in the Net" in the spiritual world after their Death, and not capable of free movement, whereas the Initiate understands the Net well enough to be able to use every part of the Net (all the geometric blueprints of Creation) and move freely in the spiritual world.
Thoth himself was shown on the Temple Wall at Karnak in the act of "stretching the cord", which is the act of moving from a spiritual center outwards in order to create forms in the physical 3-dimensions of space; the great hermetic Egyptologist Schwaller de Lubicz labeled this Temple illustration "Thoth, Master of the Net". 
Chapter 153 of the Egyptian Book of the Dead (in Ancient Egypt this text was known by the much more beautiful title The Book of Coming Forth into the Light) has a long description of every part of the Net which the Initiate has mastered. Having mastered the Net, the Initiate in the text constantly refers to himself as Osiris, having merged in Resonance with this divine being who has conquered death and knows how to navigate the higher spiritual realms.
When the Egyptian high spiritual culture began to decline with foreign invasions, its knowledge went in two prominent directions: to the Jewish culture in Israel, and into the Greek tradition.
Ancient Israel: The Net in the Jewish Kabbalah
One key representation of the NET of creation in the Jewish Kabbalah is called the "231 Gates": this arrays the 22 Flame Letters of the Hebrew Alphabet (each a divine force from the Godhead) around the periphery of a circle or sphere; a line of energy connects each letter with every other letter, creating the NET.
This tradition also holds essential knowledge of the Energy Blueprint which creates the human being: the well-known 'Tree of Life'. However there are many layers of the Tree of Life which are not well-known. To give just one very important example, the Kabbalistic text Sepher Yetzirah ("The Book of Formation") emphasizes that the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet break up into three sets:
3 "Mother Letters"
7 "Double Letters" and
12 "Elemental Letters"
What even most modern Kabbalists do not know, however, is that these numbers represent the actual coding pattern of the human subtle bodies. There are THREE key anchor positions for the human soul (astral body) at the head, heart, and hara (belly area). The human life body (etheric body) anchors at SEVEN positions, and the human physical body at TWELVE specific locations. This coding system — the secrets of which are also part of later medieval alchemical manuscripts — also includes details on the sources of power for these parts of the human subtle body, at the planetary and star levels.
With this knowledge, now take a look at the well known Kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram (if you don't know it, a picture of it can easily be found on the internet): it has THREE horizontal lines, SEVEN vertical lines, and TWELVE diagonal lines. Within these sacred geometric patterns there are deep secrets of the spiritual construction — and potential healing — of every human being. 
In Greece the NET was referred to very directly, as it was in Egypt. There was a famous Greek Gnostic text bearing the title of "The Net." Ancient Greek coins depict Apollo (the Sun Being) sitting on the Foundation Stone of Delphi; beneath him a Net of energy covers the Foundation Stone of this spiritual city. Interestingly, modern esoteric energy research has shown that the Sun does indeed create critical energetic networks and effects on the surface of the Earth. 
The term "The Net" was also integrated directly into the Greek temple designs. Greek (like Hebrew and other languages) has a system which exchanges every letter of the alphabet for a given number: the Greeks called this system 'Gematria.' Names thus have a specific vibratory number quality, in addition to the power of the vibrated sounds of the name. In Ancient Egypt the 'REN', the name of the person, was understood to be so important that it was considered to be one of the levels of the human subtle body.  The Egyptians and Greeks knew that the 'Names of Power' carry the true Vibrational Code of the being they name, and can access the power of that being through the Name.
Just as similar sounds will resonate together (one tuning fork, struck and brought close to a second tuning fork of the same musical note, will create vibration in the second fork), so similar number qualities will resonate together also. A Greek Temple for example may have the name 'Apollo' translated into a number, and the name "The Net" also translated into a number, and those numbers become then a particular measurement used in designing the Temple. This hidden practice is also related to the power of specific sacred measurement systems — The Egyptian Royal Cubit, the Remen, etc. — used in the ancient world. 
New Testament and Holy Grail Traditions
Spiritual references in the New Testament are derived directly from a combination of Jewish and Greek esoteric Initiation teachings. References to the NET can be found in the New Testament, and are also embedded in the later Holy Grail Tradition. Examples include Christ telling his disciples to cast their Nets into the ocean for a miraculous catch of fish; this is the same image as found in the aforementioned Egyptian temple wall illustrations of the Baboons of Thoth casting nets into the water, to catch the "fish" of human souls caught in the 'Net' of the geometric space-time energy matrix. Reference to their being precisely 153 fish caught in the Net (in the Appendix of the Gospel of John) is a direct reference to specific Sacred Geometric numbers taught in the Greek mysteries. 
Islam has extremely deep Spiritual Initiation teachings, which tragically are rarely represented in the media outside of the Middle East; as in Christianity, it is the intolerant fundamentalist sects which appear most often in the news. Islam actually contains within it many classical secrets from the Middle Eastern traditions, especially Ancient Egypt.
One example is that Islam is one of the only world traditions to focus on the Power of the Holy Number 19.  The power of the number 19 and its proper use was a fundamental teaching in the Ancient Egyptian Temple Science. One of the primary grids used in Ancient Egypt to lay out designs on the Temple walls was the grid based on 19 vertical divisions; this is known to Egyptologists, but they have no idea of the significance of this fact.
In brief, the number 19 is built into the spiritual blueprint of the human being and all of creation. It is related to an energetic grid surrounding every human being, which contains within it the precise positions and functions for all of the spiritual energy centers in the human being (not only chakras, but a large number of power centers not taught publicly by any tradition even today.) The Egyptian priesthood knew that the Grid of 19 was in reality the background of the human archetypal energy blueprint. They also knew that the correct use of the 19 in design (as 19 design elements, or by building the number into measurement and proportional systems in design) creates a very powerful emanation of beneficial energy; this is the Golden light often referenced in ancient Egyptian texts as essential for spiritual development and for consciousness after death. 
The true Rosicrucians have been caretakers and researchers of this ancient knowledge within modern Europe. The most advanced teachings from this tradition can be found in the over 350 volumes of books and collected lectures by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861 — 1925), by far the most advanced Rosicrucian teacher ever to teach publicly. The Rosicrucian work preserves the knowledge of earlier cultures in Egypt, Greece, and Israel and translates them into a clear, concise form which uses our own cultural references rather than that of earlier cultures. 
It is within these Rosicrucian works from Steiner that one can find advanced information which is intentionally hidden in the earlier traditions; Steiner as a Rosicrucian knew that we are living in a time when the Mysteries need to be made public, as a natural step in human spiritual evolution. To give just one example of the information revealed in his work: for thousands of years, initiation traditions have used the symbols of the five pointed (pentagram) and six pointed (hexagram) stars in public material to represent certain ideas; however they never taught the public the real energy science behind what these forms actually are and what they do. Steiner was teaching back in 1907 that the Pentagram actually exists as a key pattern within every human being's Etheric Body of life energy, and the Hexagram in 3-Dimensions (commonly referred to today by Leonardo's term 'Star Tetrahedron') is one form of the human Astral Body.  The five and six pointed stars (and many other important forms beyond them) were used in Initiation to resonate with higher beings & higher planes, to activate functions within the human subtle bodies, and for powerful spiritual protection. 
Modern Re-Emergence of the Hidden Energy Science
Even from this very superficial overview, the Masters of the Net initiation tradition is of obvious importance for our own modern spiritual knowledge and practices. A true "Master of the Net" would not only clearly understand the divine principles and the Sacred Geometry Blueprints of Creation, but could also practically apply their knowledge and create any energy effect needed. The Unified Energy Science understands how any one (or all) of the different qualities of nature can be used to create a desired energy effect. In practical terms, the master of this energy science can create a wide range of beneficial effects through knowing how to find and apply the correct
In my 25+ years of intensive research, and collection of relevant practices & information from around the world, I have also searched for modern teachers of this knowledge. In Egypt today, a modern master of this energy science has emerged who can and does use all of these qualities to create powerful effects at will — and is willing to teach the inner secrets of this work to the public.
Part 3: A Vital New Breakthrough in Modern Egypt
Some of the most important new developments in the teaching and practice of the true holistic energy science are now emerging from Egypt. Although still almost unknown in North America, a remarkable Egyptian Architect and Scientist has recently demonstrated the ability to detect, differentiate, manifest, and transmute the living energy qualities which create our world.
The Architect is Dr. Ibrahim Karim of Cairo, who has developed an entire holistic science of energy quality which he has trademarked under the name of BioGeometry?. His work only began to be made public in Egypt in the 1990's, following an astonishing series of scientific projects where he demonstrated the ability to create energetic effects considered 'theoretically impossible' by orthodox scientists. Here are just a few of these projects:
Egyptian National Research Centre:
Dr. Karim was brought to this advanced research facility run by the Egyptian Government, and challenged to alter the life functions in living organisms using only simple geometric forms. The assembled scientists and medical doctors at the Research Centre were shocked by the successful results. The report on the experiments issued by the Centre's Department of Microbial Chemistry stressed that "Further experimentation on this type of interaction between the Bio-Geometrical shapes and a variety of microorganisms is a top priority... To me the essence of this type of interaction seems to surpass explanation through our traditional and classical knowledge in basic science." 
The experiments were so successful that Dr. Karim was named the head of a special new research project at the Centre, studying the Effects of Geometric Forms on Life Processes.
Egyptian National Hepatitis C Research Project:
Hepatitis C is rampant in Egypt and North Africa, leading to the Egyptian government sponsoring medical trials to determine the most effective remedies. Along with groups studying the effects of Interferon and other pharmaceuticals, one research group was given to Dr. Karim to use only BioGeometry geometric patterns with those patients. Dr. Karim gave each participant a special medallion he had developed, which was covered with geometric patterns he calls "BioSignatures"; these are 2-dimensional representations of the actual movements of energy within the human body which create life functions. The magazine Egypt Today described the results of the Research Project: "Dean of Al Azhar University's faculty of Pharmacy, Taha Khalifa, invited Karim to take part in a National Research Project aimed at testing the available medication for Hepatitis C. Karim created a special aluminum laser-engraved chip which was used by 300 patients over a period of three months. The results were astounding, with the normalization of the liver enzymes of 90 percent of the users in contrast with the usual success range of 20 to 25 percent." 
Project leader Dr. Khalifa also announced the successful results with BioGeometry on a national prime-time Egyptian television program. This television show revealed the existence of BioGeometry to the Egyptian public for the first time, and featured numerous patients from the BioGeometry control group of the Hepatitis C research project speaking about their experiences. Many of the patients on the program even brought with them their official medical records, proving that their blood now tested clean of Hepatitis C. That program and other television coverage elevated Dr. Karim to celebrity status in Egypt.
Vibrational Medicine Research:
Reuters News Service distributed internationally an article on Dr. Karim's BioGeometry, including interviews with Egyptians who had experienced stunning transformations in their personal health. In one case they reported that: "a 24-year old engineering student with a low platelet count had some reservations about the healing power of shapes. But having undergone a $25,000 course of treatment in the United States and having had his spleen removed to no avail, he decided to try Karim's method. 'When I met Ibrahim he put a ring on my finger with a design print on it, then he gave me a medallion. At first I thought it was strange, but after all I'd been through I was prepared to give it a go,' he said. Overnight his platelet count went up to 35,000, and in four more days it soared to 250,000, he said." 
Another interviewee in the article reported similar success with an entirely different problem: "Hassan Hafez Amin, 57, a retired marketing consultant with gout, says Karim's methods had worked where others had failed. 'I went to Ibrahim with an open mind and he gave me a medallion inscribed with a geometric pattern to wear. In one month my uric acid levels decreased from 9 to 4.8,' he said." 
Growing Crops — In Salt Water:
Dr. Karim was invited to the Red Sea by Engineer Adel Ammar to see if he could find a way to use salt water for irrigation, rather than Red Sea farmers having to pay the high costs for desalinization. As reported by Al-Ahram Weekly, by integrating specific shapes into the water channels and containers Dr. Karim actually succeeded in growing Sweet Potatoes in Salt Water drawn straight from the Red Sea; yet another result which was theoretically impossible until he accomplished it. 
Clearing Electro-Magnetic Stress Problems from Entire Cities in Switzerland:
After a powerful cellphone tower was put in the middle of the Swiss city of Hemberg, residents began to fall ill. Animals and birds were seen to leave the area, and those confined to pens suffered miscarriages; animals raised for food were found to have tumors when slaughtered. The problems got so bad that Swiss evening news programs showed pictures of local residents who had moved their beds down to their root cellars, to try to escape the Radiation effects. Dr. Karim was invited to help, and by using precise Geometric forms and BioGeometry techniques was able to clear the area of electro-stress problems. One Swiss newspaper called Dr. Karim the "Wonder-worker from Egypt." 
Dr. Karim was so successful that the Hemberg town council gave Dr. Karim the Key to the City and demanded that the Swiss National Government implement similar BioGeometry corrections throughout the country. This led to Dr. Karim being invited to clear similar problems from the city of Hirschberg Switzerland, while being observed by Swiss government representatives; just as in Hemberg, the project was tremendously successful and was reported in newspapers and Television news programs across Switzerland. 
Water Revitalization Research with Dr. Masaro Emoto
Dr. Karim is also good friends with the well-known Japanese Water Crystallization researcher Dr. Emoto. Emoto's HADO laboratory in Switzerland studied the effects of Dr. Karim's BioGeometry shapes and tools in improving water structure. They found perfect structures created in their water samples simply by having one of Dr. Karim's tools (known as a BioGeometry Cube, a modified Cube shape covered with specific energy patterns) in the same room as the water. Researchers also commented that Dr. Karim's BioGeometry created more consistent crystallization patterns than virtually anything else they have tested. Dr. Emoto joined Dr. Karim for an international press conference in Cairo, revealing photographs of the powerful structuring effects of BioGeometry patterns on water crystals. 
This is only a very short list of Dr. Karim's successful projects: there are many more projects conducted with Government agencies, European Universities, Medical Doctors, etc. which are beyond the scope of this article. 
We should note that Dr. Karim, an Architect by profession and not a Medical Doctor, makes no medical claims for his work for obvious reasons. Instead, as he puts it, 'My job is to carry out an experiment with BioGeometrical shapes, demonstrate a fact, repeat this experiment until it becomes a scientific phenomenon, and allow specialists in every field to start research work.'" 
Although still almost unknown in North America, Dr. Karim is having a powerful impact in the Middle East. He has been given his own Arabic language television show, broadcast on satellite throughout the Middle East; it's title translates as "God Grant Me More Wisdom"; in it Dr. Karim teaches simple ways to improve one's life and transform the energetic environment around us using BioGeometry.
Remarkably, BioGeometry is also now taught at the University level in Egypt for advanced Architecture students. In these courses students are shown how to design according to energetic principles, tie buildings into the Earth's own energy patterns as was done in the Sacred Design of ancient times (so that buildings act as living organs conducting the Earth energy through them, as was done with the Ancient Egyptian Temples), and much more.
I first heard of Dr. Karim around the turn of the century, and sought him out to learn his methods. Although beyond the scope of this short article, I should note that the principles, patterns, and methods of his work are of amazing depth and power. I have found that Dr. Karim is willing to publicly teach highly practical, advanced energetic information which is literally not available anywhere else in the world. His system allows one to be able to directly detect, manifest, and transmute powerful energy qualities through the precise use of shapes, angles, proportions, movements, colors, and sounds. His work applies to energy balancing not only buildings, environmental areas, and objects, but also all living beings as well.
I am extremely fortunate that after years of working together, Dr. Karim allowed me to become the first non-Egyptian instructor of BioGeometry, with authorization to teach both the Foundation and Advanced levels of his training in North America. I now teach his work through the Vesica Institute in Asheville North Carolina, and sponsor him to come to North America to teach specialized topic courses to graduates of the Advanced BioGeometry training. 
1. This concept is summarized by Dr. Ibrahim Karim as "Energy into Shape creates Function." In other words, energy is programmed to perform a specific function, take on a certain power, by the movement pattern it is given by Nature. That movement pattern, frozen in space, is Shape. An overview of this and other keys to the Energy Science of Sacred Geometry is provided in the Sacred Geometry Foundation Training DVD set available atwww.vesica.org; this set contains the first two days of a 7-day intensive Sacred Geometry training.

Dr. Karim's BioGeometry is the only body of work I have found anywhere in the world which teaches how to detect, manifest and apply this Gold Energy, (technically known as "The Higher Harmonic of Gold") as well as how to detect and practically use the energy quality of the Holy Number 19.
11. For example, most Westerners cannot understand the cultural references which fill the Egyptian tradition. An Egyptian would have seen that the baboon stands up and call out to greet the Sun at the moment of Dawn, just like the priests in the Egyptian Temple did in their daily rituals. So when they saw a "Baboon of Thoth" on a temple painting they knew the Baboon is connected to the priestly knowledge of the Sun mysteries.
