In the hive, bees work in total darkness, creating their hexagonal palaces from a wax gland on their heads with beautiful precision. They communicate by dancing - sensing one another's vibrations as a complex map detailing the loci of floral abundance. Our Apian allies are responsible for more than 1/3 of all the food we eat. Bees are magical. Bees are powerful. And So I present the Queen.

Behind her floats a representation of the heart of spacetime, the 64 tetrahedron grid; the hypothetical heart of the hive. In the center of the grid is the 64 tetrahedron crystal, emanating overlapping layers of demarcated curved and liner space-time: the liner space being the vectors of the 64 tetrahedron grid, the curved space is formed by spheres various levels of division within the grid. The spheres overlap to create the "flower of life pattern."

After decades of fascinating research, Quantum physicist Nassim Haramein proposes that the 64-tetrahedron grid, the only true 3d fractal, is the structure by which the universe infinitely contracts and expands. He suggests that every galaxy, sun, planet, human, heart, cell, atom, particle, etc, from infinitely large to limitlessly large, has, at it's core, a black hole. Each black hole, organized around the geometry presented above, is an anchor point for ideas like atoms, flowers, beehives, humans and galaxies to form around - our place holder in the physical realm. Beyond serving as our anchor point, these black "wholes" both receive and transmit the code of the universe and are our nodes in the fractal matrix.
