In the ancient and medieval world, the divine often inspired urban and regional site selection, planning, design, and the construction of edifices. Even the placement of fountains and altars in places of worship have held great significance to humans since ancient times. The sacred seometry that produced pleasing aesthetics for the and perfect acoustics for the ear often mirrored the planets and stars in the heavens--as above, so below. This human desire to understand the cosmos extends back to ages for which we possess no records except the ceremonial sites and the Sacred Geometry reflected within them and among them. Considering the known or estimated dates at which sacred sites were constructed, it appears that the use of Sacred Geometry by humankind has waxed and waned multiple times over the millennia of our epoch. In various regions of the world, the construction of pyramids, stone circles, mounds, and temples sometimes transpired concurrently, and sometimes did not. Furthermore, the use of Sacred Geometry has focused on the movements of the sun, moon, starts and planets for reasons extending from the purely pragmatic to the completely spiritual.
