The Three Lenses
At this point, now that we know that the three levels of consciousness
were known by the Egyptians, we'll go back to those three geometric draw-
ings and study them carefully. They are the lenses that each level of human
consciousness uses to interpret Reality: the 8 by 10, the 10 by 12 and the 14
by 18. We'll begin by drawing the 8 by 10, the first level of consciousness.
Thoth showed me an ingenious way of constructing this drawing with-
out measuring or calculations. You need only a straightedge and a compass.
He showed me directly, saying that this would save me a lot of time [see in-
structions at bottom right for Fig. 9-15].
When the last step is completed, you have a grid of 64 small squares in-

side the large square, with exactly one additional grid square's width be-
tween the large square's perimeter and the large circle's circumference
[Fig. 9-16]. The large square measures 8 grid squares across and the large
circle measures lO across—a perfect 8 by 10. And you didn't need a ruler to
measure it!
Fig. 9-15b. Step 2.
1. Draw a vertical line, then draw a cir-
cle on the line [Fig. 9-15a].
2. Draw five more identical circles cen-
tered on the points where the vertical
line crosses the circumference of the Fig. 9-15c. Step 3.

previous circle [Fig. 9-15b].
3. Draw a horizontal line through the
pointsofthemiddlevesicapiscis. Cen-
tered where the horizontal and vertical
lines cross, draw a large circle around
the four middle circles [Fig. 9-15c].
4. Draw the same size circle as in
Fig. 9-15b centered over the horizontal
line starting at the edge of the large
circle. Create five more circles in the
same manner as step 2, only horizon-
tally [Fig. 9-15d].

5. Construct a phi-ratio square with
sides passing through die long axes of
the four outer vesica pisces.
6. Within the square, draw parallel lines
through each tangent point (where cir-
cles touch but don't cross) and also
through the long axes of each of the re-
maining vesica pisces [Fig. 9-16]. This Fig. 9-16. Step 6: An 8-by-10 grid of the first level of
