Geometry reflects the underlying order of the Universe, but not in the way we imagine.
There is nothing which so much beautifies and adorns the soul and mind of man as does knowledge of the good arts and sciences. Many arts there are which beautify the mind of man; but of all none do more garnish and beautify it than those arts which are called mathematical, unto the knowledge of which no man can attain, without perfect knowledge and instruction of the principles, grounds, and Elements of Geometry. — from the Mathematical Preface to Euclid’s Elements, by Dr. John Dee (1527-1608), English mathematician and astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I
