Well, here I am inspired to write out another article for read.cash just before I go out. The feedback I've received from other writers has been *mind blowing*. I've felt really welcome. So, **thank you to all** - for your messages and motivation.

This article is a special article because it reveals ** the hidden link** between

**the flower of life**, which is also known as the 'seed of life' and the

**Penrose Triangle**.

At first sight, there seems to be no connection. You look at the Penrose Triangle and all you see is a **clever ****optical illusion** - but I can assure you, there is more than meets the eye.

It turns out that the Penrose Triangle is an **isometric object**. Now what do I mean by isometric? Well, an **isometric grid** - the grid used in schools to plot 3D coordinates and to draw funky looking 3D cubes is made up of **equilateral triangles**. The same equilateral triangles can be used to create a Penrose Triangle, therefore a Penrose Triangle is **isometric**. An isometric grid is **simply a field** made up of equilateral triangles - and an isometric object is something that can be constructed on an isometric grid - made up of those same equilateral triangles.

Let me show you what I mean. Firstly, here is a video which shows an isometric grid emerging out of the flower of life:

Here is a close up of an isometric grid that was made on a sheet of paper using a pair of compasses, pencil and ruler. **You can see the flower of life behind the equilateral triangles if you pay close attention**:

From the same isometric grid, the Penrose Triangle can be **manifested**:

So, as you can see - there is a connection between the flower of life and the Penrose Triangle. Behind these beautiful optical illusions lie **these amazing isometric grids** which **emerge out of the flower of life**.

**Who would have guessed it?** Well, I'm sure there are some braniacs out there who probably figured it out quite quickly, but it took me many years to discover the connection. I had seen the Penrose Triangle everywhere from a very young age up until adulthood - but **only in 2015** did I notice this hidden link.
