Sacred Geometry, Alchemy and Mathematics
8 lectures by Rudolf Steiner

The Fourth Dimension: "Steiner’s work offers the most advanced synthesis of spiritual and scientific knowledge available anywhere. The Fourth Dimension is a vital contribution to our understanding of how higher worlds interact with the world of everyday experience.” — Robert J. Gilbert, Ph.D., originator of the VESICA Sacred Geometry Seminars and author of Universal Matrix: Sacred Geometry and the Patterns of Creation.

The point, line, plane, and solid objects represent the first three dimensions, but a kind of reversal of space is involved in the ascent to a fourth dimension. Rudolf Steiner leads us to this new perspective with words, diagrams, analogies, and examples of many kinds. In doing so, he continues his lifelong project of demonstrating that our objective, everyday thinking is the lowest rung of a ladder that reaches up to literally infinite heights.

Translated into English for the first time, these talks and the other selections on mathematical topics bring us to tantalizing new horizons of awareness. They discuss:

·        The relationship between geometric studies and developing direct perception of spiritual realities

·        How to construct a four-dimensional hypercube

·        The six dimensions of the self-aware human being

·        Problems with the theory of relativity

·        The relationship of the Trinity and the angelic hierarchies to physical space

·        The dimensional aspect of the spiritual being that Moses encountered on Mt. Sinai
