What the Octagon is?

After much research, one can consider it to be irrefutable that the octogon is a time piece. and is placed in buildings to symbolically represent the universal laws of ordinance. It is a measure for orientation.

This is not an opinion per say; as it is provable by it's function in all navigational instruments and the mathematical operations that apply to it.

Standing in the central point of a octogon and knowing true north by the north star, one has a calender for the 360 degree's year.

The octogon empowers the individual to understand the positions of the sun rising (known in navigation as bearing) and therefore calculate the point of the year.

Each point spaced 45 degrees appart will denote the 4 cardinal points that mark the change of the four seasons and the 4 fixed points that mark mid season points of the year.

 

Totaling 8.

 

The octogon is also used as a navigational instrument. Once true north is determined, the 8 points of a compass are placed at 45 degrees

 


I
t is an instrument of measure and therefore is a timepiece.

Given that its purpose is for understanding the operation of nature, it is therefore an instrument in understanding universal law.

To know your measure and weights.

To weigh the evidence to measure the truth.

A bearing is an acute angle measured relative to the North-South line of which can not be calcuted without firstly determining North.

T
he phrase "Getting Your Bearings" originates from its connection to the North Star Polaris that dwells on the tail of the constellation "Ursa minor/ "Lesser Bear"
