Who doesn’t love crystals? Their power and allure are irresistible.
Spiritual seekers use them to invoke the hidden forces of the universe. Fashion goers use jewelry as the ultimate expression of beauty. And we all remember the thrill of breaking open our first rock and finding the sparkling, crystal treasure at its core.
From a Centerpath perspective, it’s satisfying to know these lovely creations are formed almost exclusively in center-oriented patterns about centers.
Of the main patterns, the most prominent is the body-centered cubic which can be readily viewed on a grand scale at the Atomia display in Brussels (see image below).
The significance of this shape can’t be overstated.
For just like atoms and cells combining to form molecules and tissues respectively; body-centered cubic’s form the basic ‘unit cell’ for practically all metallic and crystalline structures.
Stacked in innumerable, overlapping lattice structures, body-centered cubic’s combine to form the larger structures of rocks, stones, and crystals. They also from the many metallic structures which form the backbone of society such as cars, furniture, buildings, airplanes, etc.
Centers at the heart of crystals and our hearts!

Here’s to mom’s today and every day!
Behind the Door shows kid’s how to build courage when faced with new challenges.
Set to the backdrop of learning to ride a bicycle, Behind the Door shows how new experiences, while challenging always lead to something fun and lead to a great next opportunity.
The images in Behind the Door are truly phenomenal—my illustrator (Donut) is highly complimented for capturing the idea of the book and amplifying it with his rich imagination.
It is a 43 MB file so expect some time to download it. You can view excerpts of my other kids books (Raindrops and A Walk on the Beach) at this link.
A fun VDO full of beautiful images and deep truths!
As Centerpath teaches, an essential function of centers is to unite hosts of ‘things’ into larger, cohesive organizations.
This phenomenon is especially evident in large-scale human groupings where a single, central symbol can serve to unite 100’s of millions of people.
Nowhere is this more apparent than at the entrance to the Forbidden City at the heart of Beijing where a huge portrait of Mao resides (see image below).
While standing there viewing the portrait, you can almost feel the hearts of 1.4 billion people come together as one—united in the shared image of their iconic leader at the core of their collective psyche.
A powerful experience made even more meaningful, through a basic knowledge of Centerpath!
If you want to learn more about how centers unite all sorts of things (including flocks, families, teams, corporations, armies, nations, and your life) you’ll need to spend some time with Centerpath.
