There are certain geometric shapes which have sacred properties. Most of these are due to the fact that things in nature occur within a particular geometric shape themselves, such as hexagons, the spiral of a seashell, the circle is the only shape that will not fall within itself. But there are certain shapes which have been found to have an impact on life, and vice versa.
Some findings in the old Soviet regime claim that certain geometric shapes have an influence on blood flow, heartrate (calming), can reduce schizophrenic tendencies as well as have a general benevolent influence when used in the physical construction of certain buildings. (see Psychic Discoveries: Behind the Iron Curtain)
What I would like to investigate is whether or not these geometric shapes, which were known and understood by the ancient architects in their designs, were utilized in the Asklepion in order to aid the process of healing the body and the mind and the soul. Such a discovery could be reused with experimentation done in order to validate the claims as well as granting a better understanding of the ancient world in general.
