March is the month of Hexagon awareness.
As a science student the Benzene ring fascinates me, and most of my doodles are based on Hexagons. But I never really appreciated the connect between Hexagons in math and in chemistry. The benzene ring forms the centre of all aromatic chemistry. I never thought of things through. To me even a spider was a Benzene structure activate.
It was probably courtesy my teacher Dr.S.N.Rao of MAHE that I got fascinated by this structure. He actually got me to accept that the hexagon with free moving electron that makes the Benzene was the fundamental of life. It could be the picture of the cloud over Saturn clicked in 1977 that captured my imagination. March being the month dedicated to Hexagons I thought maybe I should acknowledge its presence in mine.
The dictionary has a very simple definition for it, a hexagon is a polygon with 6 sides and 6 angles, one could say I am geometrically jammed, I know people who keep drawing circles for some it is squares, despite knowing that octagons are the representatives of the fusion of divine and mundane, it is the hexagon that fascinates me, it is vibrant it is life.
I wondered if hexagons had a different value in my life, May it is spiritual, maybe metaphysical, I did think of breaking down elements of the image. It has six sides; maybe the number six is relevant. Six also symbolizes communication, interfacing, balance, union.
Hexagons are the shapes of the beehive, and many epithelial cells. I think I should meditate on this and see what comes up to me; maybe I should have the March journal of hexagons.
What I see about the hexagon is the periphery of the two inverted triangles, call it the shatkona, the purusha-prakriti, shiva-shakti, the Star of David, the male female, maybe that with the moving electron, told me, “Life.”
