the god in the geometry

Objects can suddenly supplant a time, a place in my consciousness. A discarded tray and there is suddenly a panel from the glorious mosques and palaces of southern Spain. El Alhambra. God could not be insulted by being depicted as human form or reckoning. So the mathematical logic of pattern and design attempted to create the divine in its stunning complexity. A code for the relationships in the Universe and their workings. The logic of existence. A pattern of the sublime. A design for life.

I'm not a Maths man but even I can see the studied beauty in those repeated geometric formulations. Allahu Akbar .
