Citing the what now??
<< Bartfeld, Martha (1968). How to Create Sacred Geometry Mandalas. Santa Fe, NM: Mandalart Creations. p. 35., citing Drunvalo Melchizedek, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life (1999). >>
Time... does not work like that?
But on Wikipedia, it does.
Okay, now I understand... this is actually TWO SEPARATE CITATIONS, grrrr!
Matha Bartfield AND 'Mandalart Creations'
just squoozed together into one
Oh... how about *2005*, not 1968!
I do love that about Wikipedia. When you see a nonsense, you can fix it immediately.
I mean about five seconds' browsing gets this... Martha *began working on* geometry in 1968. Didn't write this book until 2005.
But seriously, how is it that people don't know how to read for fact-checking. How hard is it to stop and ask 'is this claim sensible? does it require time to flow backwards?'
@natecull may I just inquire as to why you were double-checking the dates of the citations of an obscure wikipedia article about an obscure geometric pattern?
@algorev Because I happen to be currently interested in the subject and particularly interested in trying to work out where the ideas came from, who published what and when. And Wikipedia is *usually* much better than this.
@algorev As to *why* I'm interested in hex geometry... I can't tell you because I don't know. My brain just is.
