To fully grasp De Lubicz’ vision we need to consider the Egyptian mindset from within the “Great Chain of Being” and remove our modernist and secular theories from the stage.

For a moment consider the Egyptian perception, time, space, direction – all have religious connotations. Time is not simply a clicking of a digital clock, time is measured by the flow of religious festivals, time within the day is correlated to stories about the gods. Every moment hence is sacred and full of spiritual intent.

De Lubicz went further and decoded the architecture of many of the temples, for example, he spent years decoding the Temple of Luxor showing that its design was based on the human body and that its dimensions reflected sacred proportions (similar to those found in Chartes and other cathedrals build on Masonic dimensions).

Yet what does it mean ? What does it matter that a temple is like a human body. The significance can only be understood when we consider the experience of the average Egyptian within a traditional culture based on an appreciation of the unity between the individual, the state and the divine.

As “Jack” the Egyptian approaches the temple, he is not isolated from it. He approaches it at a certain time, correlated to a god or religious concept, from a direction intent with meaning. He is not isolated from the architecture, it is alive. Its form, shape and dimension all communicate to him. He knows they have the same proportions as his body and hence he is part of the architecture, he is connected to the temple and it to him. Further to this, he knows it has been placed in a “sacred location” and hence is connected to his mother land and to his people.

So there is no division, there is a harmonic and unity between the individual, time, space, direction, architecture, land and people.
