Isis Unveiled: chapter I (an axiom of hermetic philosophy)

“”Firstly”, says Mr. Felt, “the fundamental diagram to which all science of elementary geometry, both plain and solid, is referable; to produce arithmetical systems of proportion in a geometrical manner; to identify this figure with all the remains of architecture and sculpture, in all which it had been followed in a marvelously exact manner; to determine that the Egyptians had used it as the basis of all their astronomical calculations, on which their religious symbolism was almost entirely founded;

 
to find its traces among all the remnants of art and architecture of the Greeks; to discover its traces so strongly among the Jewish sacred records, as to prove conclusively that it was founded thereon; to find that the whole system had been discovered by the Egyptians after researches of tens of thousands of years into the laws of nature, and that it might truly be called the Science of the Universe.”

 
Further it enabled him  “to determine with precision problems in physiology heretofore on surmised; to first develop such a Masonic philosophy as showed it to be conclusively the first science and religion, as it will be the last”;

 
and we may add lastly, to prove by ocular demonstrations that the Egyptian sculptors and architects obtained the models for the quaint figures which adorn the facades and vestibules of their temples, not in the disordered fantasies of their own brains, but from the “viewless races of the air”, and other kingdoms of nature, whom he, like them, claims to make visible by resort to their own chemical and kabalistical processes.”
