Various formations resonate with particular points within the body. For instance, the Stellated Cuboctahedron (known also as the Heart Star) is in frequency resonance with the heart chakra. While communing with it or simply wearing it, it brings strength in the electromagnetic life force to the circuits that feed these chakras. Bringing purification and balance to the emotions and healing issues of abandonment and betrayal. This form also protects again harmful electricity or emfs. The Cuboctahedron is not part of the family of the 5 Platonic or Regular Solids which all have the same faces, same angles and same line lengths. The Cuboctahedron, since it has 2 shapes, that is the 6 squares and the 8 triangles, belongs to a sub-family called the Archimedean or Semi-Regular Solids, of which there are 13. The founder of Geodesic Domes, Buckminster Fuller, adored this shape above all others. It has been noted that when teachers were asked to supply shapes to his seminars, he strictly asked them to bring all their shapes except for the dodecahedron! Most teachers normally highlight the platonic solid dodecahedron with its 12 pentagonal faces as the highest of forms, but Bucky Fuller realized that only the Cuboctahedron, when compressed, can make all the 5 platonic solids, and therefor attributed aspects of alchemy and transmutational qualities to it. He gave it several names like the Jitterbug or Vector Flexor or Dymaxion. When this shape is made with wooden sticks and rubber joins and the opposing sides are compressed or squeezed towards the centre, an interesting scientific phenomena occurs where the shape alternates its twist, a bit like a washing machine that moves or oscillates back and forth from left to right. That is why the Cuboctahedron is known as the Jitterbug and therefore has applications in the scientific realms of frequency, wavelengths, resonance and much more. It looms large in the realm of sub-atomic particles and is definitely wise to research this shape and explore its many intersting qualities. For example, this cuboctahedral shape is found naturally in the crystal realm, as garnet. For further research into this shapes occurence in the atomic world, look up Chris Illert, in his 2 rare and out of print books called Alchemy 1 and 2. How do we arrive at this shape. First, imagine that you have a sphere in your hand, say an orange. An ancient puzzle would ask of you to determine or guess, how many identical spheres or orangles could you pack or glue around this central sphere, so that the spheres are all touching. This is called "Kissing Spheres" or Sphere Packing, and is a very important part of Sacred Geometry.The answer is 12. Only 12 spheres can pack around a central 13th! Now you know why they created "Fear" around the number 13, as Fear denies access to the cellular Memory. Imagine now that you were a spider and could connect only those 12 sphere centers, what shape would you get? The shape is this Cuboctahedron, 1 of the 13 Archimedean solids that is composed of 12 Vertices (being the 12 centres of the 12 circumambulating Spheres), 6 Squares and 8 Equilateral Triangles. When a master like Jesus has emanated enough Love, the principle of Expansion takes place, and the one sphere manifests or magnetizes to itSelf 12 Others or 12 Disciples. Thus this Cuboctahedron symbolizes the 12:13 Code, the process of spiritual expansion. That is why the creators of this Jewellry have renamed it as the Heart Star in its Stellated Form. "Stellation" means the process of extenuating the original shape with 3-Dimensional Tetrahedrons or Pyramids forms, like a 3-D Star, to make the crystal grow. In examining these new stellated shapes, a whole new science and mathematics of form is created. (When you stellate an outer Triangle form, you get a Tetrahedron (Greek word for 4 Faces), when you stellate a Square, you get a square-based-pyramid, and when you stellate a Pentagon, you get a pentagonal pyramid etc). As you delve deeper into the Cuboctahedron in its stellated form, you witness that even the shadow of this complex form has a very simple shape. When you shine a light or laser upon the Stellated Cuboctahedron, or by tilting it to a critical angle, it appears to form exactly the Asterisk symbol: ( * ) that we are all familiar with. It make you wonder whether we adopted this commony asterisk symbol as it holds the memory of a psycho-active or hyper-dimensional index of knowledge. This is part of the quest of sacred geometry, that we begin to explore the dimensional ladder and examine the true nature of things from many angles and perspectives.
