Re: The mathematics of mosques

My brother drew a very complex star pattern with thousands and thousands of lines.
And he surely doesn't know the math behind it, whatever that means?
But he is an artist and a draftsman, and he also draws incredible mazes.

Re: The mathematics of mosques

I don't know why Muslims like to draw many complex and eye-dazzling patterns on their Mosques. I mean, won't they get dizzy when looking at that complex linear patterns? (frankly I am dizzy, bewildered each time I see them)

Re: The mathematics of mosques

Islamic religion forbids the depiction of living creatures in art. Therefore Islamic artists have had to concentrate on other forms of artistic expression such as calligraphy and abstract shapes – hence the diverse and intricate patterns you see in Islamic art. cool

Re: The mathematics of mosques

How do they know what is alive?  What if 500 years from now, we believe gluons are alive??
Or photons?  Or gravity?

Re: The mathematics of mosques

my god, that will be a day to remember, the day that we learn that the sun is actually a photon in a much larger universe therefore we are alive to die again and to live in a world of gay happy gluons and buzz words..... yeh.

Strangely, Islamic religion does allow drawing of trees.

Re: The mathematics of mosques

I feel like Islam is a reborn of Zoroastrianism.
the shape of a Mosque top is the shape of a flame.

Well, the Muslims themselves think that Islam is updated Christianity.
