Euclid [325-2650], known as the father of geometry, is responsible for assembling almost all the world’s knowledge of flat-plane (Flat surface geometry) and 3D geometry in one book. His work, together with the work of Pythagoras, forms the basis of all sacred geometry. It is only in the last few centuries that any significant geometry has been added to what Euclid laid down 2,300 years ago. Euclid probably first studied mathematics in Athens with some of Plato’s students. He also wrote close to a dozen of other books on topics, such as music, mechanics and optics, but only four actually survive. *Optics, *contains some of the earliest studies of perspective.

The ancient Greeks using geometry have built the calculations of harmony that go to make up sacred-geometry and it’s step-by-step logic is the basis of modern scientific reasoning. The Greeks created ideals of classical beauty, stunning architecture and the logical scientific approach to solving problems. These ideals and knowledge of form and proportion are the foundation of sacred geometry as we know it today. At the heart of Western science, Greek geometers helped to build strong foundations of architecture, astronomy, mechanics, and optics. Euclid “arranged” geometry; and Pythagoras explained the inherent sacredness of numbers.

Euclidean geometry needs only a compass and straightedge. In the 13 books of Elements, it gives most of the geometric knowledge of Euclid’s time, containing all we know about plane geometry (Flat surface geometry) and much that we know about spheres, cones, and other 3-d figures.

InĀ [624-546 BC] Thales of Miletus sometimes referred to as the “father of deductive reasoning’ was one of the first to bring the science of geometry from Egypt to Greece three centuries before Euclid. Plato [427-347 BC] founded the Academy in 387 BC that flourished until 529 AD. Plato’s book *Phaedo* supported Pythagoras by attempting to prove that numbers and figures are the perfect noumenal forms behind manifested reality. After some time around [417-369 BC] Theaetetus of Athens created the solid geometry of the five Platonic solids and his work fascinated Renaissance writers with proportion and sacred geometry. Eudoxus of Cnidus [408-355 BC] devised methods for determining the area of circles and the volumes of pyramids and cones. His works were about proportion and harmony and become key factors in Greek architecture and sacred geometry. Eudoxus work inspired Book V of Euclid’s *Elements*. This volume is of particular importance to the study of sacred geometry.

i have given you tmy command . reply plesse

It is good to know some things which are useful for u,about the HISTORY of life…

I am vry impress with the work euclid done .so many results ,axioms n theorem had been discovered before EUCLID ,but he is the first who knew that these results are interconnected to each other they can be arrenged in asequence in which the next can be proved from the last SO I GAVE NAME OF MY MATHS CLASSES “EUCLID CLASSES”

Praveen,

That’s great! Yes his work is impressive and he was a very smart man. It’s a basic understanding that everything is interconnected to each other =) Math is an amazing subject because numbers never lie but instead show truth. Glad you stopped by the site to have a good read.

In Joy,

John

yes !!!

may answer na ako sa assignment namin ..

yehey … wahu !!!

Yeah found a mistake he didnt live over 2000 years he was born on 325 BC and died about 265 BC not 2650

very very interesting

What’s the full name of Euclid??? =)

euclid of alexandria or euclid alexandria

looking at Eulclid and his works in proportion then using them in life..using what sacred geometery is…WELCOME to freemasonry

look and ye shall recieve further light

yes it is nice to know somethings of a old roll modle correct im crazy for history

Hello, my name is Barry. I bet you all are wondering why I have gathered you all here today. If that is the question you are seekng, then I have your answer. The answer you are looking for lies between the laws of gravity and the latin language.

Euclid wasn’t great

But was he not indeed great?

You will decide now…

this is great sc of the world . i li

ke this…………..

hi there intersting fact

yes!!! i have assignment in math …yeh

yes he is a very great man with a remarkable knowledge.

Some of his original books revolved around navigation.The compass that he designs in it is my favorite.

Great man,great work,great finder.we emulate you.

yes she is a great man in the math

Nice!!!full history

Very important and great work he has done. I’m very impressed. Really fantastic job. He has opened a new class in mathematics.

As noted above, Euclid did not invent geometry. The Egyptians did. They also developed other areas of mathematics. The Pythagorian Triangle should be named “The Egyptian Triangle”, since Pythagorus learnt it in Egypt. He spent a long time begging to get into the Temple University at Heliopolis, Egypt, before finally being accepted. Many other Greeks, such as Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, etc. also studied in Egypt at one of the Temple Universities. They were required to shave their bodies of all hair, and to submit to circumcision before entering the Temples.

The Greeks themselves often gave credit to the Egyptians, from whom they got much of their knowledge.
