6000 years ago when the human mind was half asleep Chaldean priests began scanning stars, making maps and time tables of their motions.  Their star movements were confined to a narrow lane called the Zodiac, which is divided into 12 sections each names after a constellation of fixed stars in the area.

Greeks take over: Pythagoras of Samos – Founder of a new religious philosophy and the founder of Science, as the world is understood today.

Numbers were sacred, eternal – everything else was perishable; they are the nature not of matter but of mind.

Ionian philosophers were materialists searching for what the universe was made of. Pythagoras’ inquiry was of form/proportion and pattern. What was our relation to the universe NOT what is the universe.

Axis of Pythagoras’ system – music/numbers harmony/proportion.
