Editorial Note: This is the original
manuscript illustration by Athanasius Kircher who was a 17th
Kircher was also known as the Father of Egyptology. He was a scientist
and theorized that microbes are the cause of disease and suggested effective
mechanisms to prevent outbreaks of plague.
Here you will note that the numeration around the 9
pointed figure begins at 1 (apex) then 4, 8, 2, 5, 9, 3, 6, 7 clockwise.
Note that he includes a 'magic square' where all columns, rows, and diagonals
add to 15 (1+5=6 or 3+3).
The centre is the 'all seeing eye' possibly referring to the Rosicrucian
influences in the early 1600s.
The bottom of the plate shows the total world order,
with Animal (4), Man (7), the Heavens with a geocentric solar system, flanked by
angels under the ray of the nonagram with angels in all points encompassing the
Triad (The Law of 3 - Father, Son, Holy Spirit) or more plainly 3+3+3 = 9, yet
unmistakably, the rays of the nonagram shine onto all of creation.
