“The Zoroaster’s Telescope claims to be The Key to the Great Divinatory Kabbala of the Magi, and indeed within the text we find an eclectic mix of Angel Magic, Astrology, Divination, twenty-eight Mansions of the Moon, Kabbala, Zoroastrianism, Sacred Geometry, Numerology, reminiscent of the syncretism MacGregor Mathers employed in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn at the close of the 19th century. As a system of divination, Zoroaster’s Telescope is unique in the genre employing diverse magical methods layout very much along the lines of the grimoires of occult tradition. The book features several wood engraved plates, charts and tables and a large folding plate THE URN wherein the sigla of this art are exemplified. Typographical treatment and design for Zoroaster’s Telescope was executed by Joseph Uccello and the translation was rendered by Dr. Jennifer Zahrt, PhD.” [via]

“I created this while playing with concepts in sacred geometry. It is a hexagram or the star of David which manifests itself in the center very subtly appearing out of the chaotic mesh of moving geometry. Then the same shape starts to manifest itself in the larger picture so to speak so that micro and macro, Alpha and Omega, the form within the form becomes manifest. If you pay attention you can see the star moving into configurations which resemble the Sri Yantra from the Hindu Tantric traditions consisting of nine interlocking triangles that surround and radiate out from a central point. In a similar way and in a very similar play the Star of David is danceing here within the Metatron cube of which all forms in sacred geometry are contained and can be derived. I like it.” [via]
