The Platonic Solids, you might have heard of them. But what are they, and where do they come from?
In short, they’re derived from the centuries old Flower of Life. The Flower of Life is a complex flower like pattern, based upon equal circles. Additionally, the Flower of Life holds many secrets, including the Platonic Solids.
But in order to find these solids, we have to unfold the secrets of the Flower of Life.
The first secret, for example, is the Fruit of Life. From the Fruit of Life, Metatron Cube can be derived.
Through the complex lines of the 2D shape of Metatron Cube, other shapes can be formed. In total, five three-dimensional shapes can be formed. All of them have four very interesting characteristics in common.
To sum up:
All faces have the same shape and size.
All their edges have the same size.
The interior angles between each face is the same.
If the solid is placed inside a sphere, all the points are touching the surface of the sphere.
The best-known platonic solid, is the cube. Firstly, all its faces are a square. Secondly, all of the edges have the same length and thirdly, all the angles between the faces are 90 degree. And last, all its point touch the surface of the sphere.
The other platonic solids are the Tetrahedron, the Octahedron, the Icosahedron and the Dodecahedron.
Unlike the cube, the other shapes are less commonly known.

So how did these shapes got their names? Well, these three-dimensional shapes were first described by the philosopher Plato (hence the name) around 400 BC.
Their names are based on their description in Ancient Greek.
But the strange thing is, these remarkable shapes are being dug up all over the world. What they’ve discovered is that they’re thousands of years older than Plato.
But what makes them so special in the world of Sacred Geometry? Most importantly, all our matter is built upon these shapes. All molecules and atoms, follow a certain structure. Which makes matter as what it is. Sometimes these shapes are extremely complex, sometimes they’re very basic. And you might guess it already, the most primitive shapes possible, are the Platonic Solids. All other shapes can be derived from the Platonic Solids.
So what does this mean? This means that the Platonic Solids are the blueprint of all matter. They contain every possible molecular connection and structure. Besides that, they also contain all possible geometric laws of this reality and universe we live in. It’s the secret key to Prima Materia; the primitive, shapeless base of all matter which got shaped and became the universe.
