The ancient tradition of Sacred Geometry is still alive and well in the person of Frank Chester. He has discovered a new geometric form that unites the five Platonic solids and provides some startling indications about the form and function of the human heart. This new form, called the Chestahedron, was discovered in 2000, and is a seven-sided polyhedron with surfaces of equal area. Frank has been exploring the form and its significance for over a decade, His work has potential implications across a number of areas, from physiology to architecture, sculpture, geology, and beyond.

Inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner, Frank sees a deep connection between form and spirit. This book gives a brief, highly visual overview of some of Frank’s most important discoveries.

Frank Chester is truly one of those rare geniuses whose work will surely transform the contours of science, art, and spirituality in the decades and centuries to come. I am excited to see Frank’s work finally entering into the consciousness of the world.

When we study the biography of great individuals who have contributed something rare and unique to human culture, we might ask ourselves: Would I have recognized or supported such a person before the rest of the world did, had I been given the opportunity?

Mr. Chester is such a pioneer. His dedication to principles of higher mathematics and geometry through the insights of spiritual science is outstanding. In a model society, someone of the caliber of Mr. Chester would be supported by a major university or similar social structure. At this time, however, only those of us who have some knowledge of spiritual science and its potential to transform pedagogical, medical, mathematical and technological fields can assume the responsibility to insure that the research of Mr. Chester continues.

We have followed and supported Mr. Chester’s work for over a decade. Mr. Chester is a remarkably talented person, integrating spiritual insights with highly skilled workmanship.

Prints

Featured

Frank’s original drawings, all of which are based upon the chestahedron and its transformations, are available in high-quality print reproductions.  These drawings are completely new to the realm of sacred geometry, standing as important contributions to this most-ancient realm of human knowing.  Blending the precision of geometrical form with artistic impulses of the spirit, Frank has created truly beautiful works of “objective art”.  Read more below or click an image to make it bigger.

These five prints (01-05) show the axis geometry found in the human heart. The first print (01) shows the discovery of how a new star is created by integrating a pentagram (a circle of five) and a heptagram (a circle of seven). The second two prints (02-03) show the afterimage of the star as it moves around a lemniscates of two circles. The viewer can now experience where the stars are found in the two circles. The next two prints (04-05) show all the stars becoming a composite view of the heart geometry. The idea behind all five prints is that the human heart rejoices when life is experienced as a rhythmic weaving between peripheral and centric polarities. Contemplating any of these prints is a lawful moving way of experiencing the metamorphosis of light, which helps to heal our heart. They are healing cosmic geometries. View all five prints in a meditative sequence here.

This geometry is the most profound newly developed configuration in the 21st century. Never before has a circle been divided into seven equal spaces using a pentagram as its base. Diameters of two circles and the distance between their centers derive from the Chestahedron. In between these two circles, inside the Chestahedron, there is a cube that separates them. The distance between the centers of both circles is in a ratio of root 3 to this cube if it had a side with a length of 1. Now a pentagram can be drawn in the smaller circle and by projecting the top point of this star until the lines reach the larger circle, a Heptagram can be constructed. This geometry has produced a new star, yielding twelve stars circulating in a lemniscate focusing on the “center” and “periphery”. The new star is the one that is simultaneously moving within both circles in balance between the centric and the peripheral forces. Thus, where this star is created in conjunction with both circles there are really two stars in the same space (one from the centric side, one from the peripheral side). It therefore appears that there are only eleven stars, while in actuality there are twelve.

See how this geometry creates a cyclical relationship between the numbers five and seven in this animation.

Sculptures for Sale

Featured

The following sculptures, all of which are based upon the chestahedron and its transformations, are available for purchase. Each sculpture is painstakingly hand-made by Frank to his exacting standards, both of beauty and of geometrical perfection. This “objective art” is far more than something nice to look at: it is the meeting of form and spirit in a physical substance.
