- Aug 1, 1999mr page --
i think bio-kinetics goes to the heart of the idea of
geomancy and sacred architecture.
i would clumsily define the first as the art of finding places in the
which invoke a powerful emotional response.
the second is attempting to artificially invoke a similar emotional response
thru the skillful manipulation of space and of deeply resonant symbols.
the theories relating to both of these arts interest me very much.
i hope we will get a chance to talk more about this subject.B
