Jan works persistently to understand and tell how spirituality is somehow a part of all human life. Based on his studies of e.g. the German mathematician Albrect Dürer and the Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali he has found a universal constant that forms the basis of the construction of what we call the 21st stone in the Existence Compass(links). His primary philosophical work is to find possible connections between the individual human being and the common consciousness and methods that offer people access to this contact.
The 21st Stone
The 21th stone
An essential part of the Existence Compass is what we call the 21st stone and which in reality is the figure that is our portal key and energizer when we work in the Compass.
The figure originates from a more than 500-year-old mystery created by the German mathematician and artist Albrecht Dürer who lived from 1471-1528.
In 1514 he created the figure in his woodcut “Melencolia I”.
Since then, mathematicians, geometricians, art historians and others have written many books and dissertations on how the figure might have been constructed three-dimensionally but no one has come up with an unambiguously solution.
In 2014 – exactly 500 years after “Melencolia I” – my husband Jan succeeded in finding the one element that makes it possible to make a unambiguously mathematical and geometric solution – the fraction In 2014 – exactly 500 years after “Melencolia I” – my husband Jan succeeded in finding the one element that makes it possible to make a unambiguously mathematical and geometric solution – the fraction
Using this fraction and three circles whose radii being increased by in mutual distance, one can construct the figure.
For several years we wondered why Dürer had made this figure and what it could be used for.
When we got our first medicine wheel laid out it consisted of 20 stones laid in 3 concentric circles and since there was no center stone it was quite obvious that we had to place our figure in the center of the circle.
To our surprise and not least to my friend from Norway who works with medicine wheels and was at our place to help us lay out the wheel, the energy changed completely from what she was used to work with.
It was as if the figure had found its place and therefore, we subsequently named it the 21st stone.
The Existence Compass
The Existence Compass consists of 21 stones – or rather 20 stones and the figure we have chosen to name the 21st stone.
Each stone can have several meanings as well as areas – zones – in the Existence Compass also may have several meanings depending on the level we are working on.
Our Existence Compass is laid out so that the 4 main stones are directed to the 4 geographical corners of the world.
