Stargate

Stargate  or SG stands for Sacred Geometry.

Sacred Geometry refers to "the sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in our reality." Sacred Geometry is often seen in sacred architecture and sacred art.

Its geometry and mathematical ratios are also believed to be found in music, light and cosmology. 

This "divine ratio" is considered prevalent even in prehistoric times, and is considered the foundation of sacred structures and arts.

Music

The relationship between sacred geometry and music was attributed to Pythagoras. He found that a string stopped halfway along its length produced an octave, while a string with a ratio of 3/2 produced a fifth interval; a 4/3 produced a fourth interval. Pythagoreans believed that these ratios gave music the power to heal since it could "harmonize" an out-of-balance body.

This "theory" was resurrected by Dr. Hans Jenny, a physician who founded the study of cymatics. Cymatics is the study of geometric figures formed by wave interactions. However, Dr. Jenny did not make claims that his work can heal.

In the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, Stuart Mitchell found, what he calls "frozen music." These are 213 cubes with different symbols that are thought to have musical significance. After 27 years of study, Mitchell finally discovered the correct tonality and pitches that match each symbol on each cube. He named his "frozen music" the Rosslyn Motet, and had it performed in the chapel on May 18, 2007, and June 1, 2007.

Cosmology

As early as the mid-1500s, scientists believed in the "geometric" underpinnings of the cosmos. Johannes Kepler studied the ratios of planetary orbits, initially in 2 dimensions. When it did not yield clear enough results, he tried to use the Platonic solids. In his lifetime which afforded him a lot less accurate data than we have now, Kepler found that the Platonic solids did not fit. Actually, planetary orbits can be related using 2-dimensional geometric figures, but they do not come about in a very orderly manner.

Nature and architecture

Sacred geometry can also be found in nature as evidenced by the growth of the chambered nautilus. As it grows, the nautilus’s shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate its growth without changing it shape.

In architecture, geometric figures were used in constructing their buildings. A few examples include the Labyrinth, Parthenon, etc.
