Snow Flakes

What is the origin of the Star of David? - well, from the dawn of history people saw this shape in snow slakes such as the ones shown in this photo, which is courtesy of "moonbird" who published it on Flickr and made it Creative Commons so that people like me will be able to blog it.
The following paragraph is from Dr. Asher Eder’s book The Star of David, which was published in 1987 in English in Jerusalem by Rubin Mass: Ltd. The publication here is courtesy of Oren Mass

Everything takes place within the huge power field of Creation, with its infinite number of sub-fields, all expressing inherent possibilities.
An impressive example is the common snowflake. Hydrogen and water are basic agents forming matter in general and life in particular. Interestingly enough, the six-lobed pattern may show up in both of them although, to be sure, other patterns can show up, too (e.g. rings, disks, etc)... Snowflake crystals, apparently following the rudimentary regularity of the hydrogen atom's probability cloud, usually adopt the six-lobed pattern... in the form of the hexagram:
... The amazing fact that each fractal element bears a resemblance to the whole was taken into account during the development of holograms.


It is strange for a Jew to see the shape of OUR Star of David used by ANOTHER religion, but this is typical to this emblem, which laughs at our concepts of ownership. It was used by ALL the main religions along history. It still is in use by some religions. It tells us, as if we are already living in John Lennon's IMAGINE LAND:
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too

An army emblem inside the hexagon of a Star of David on a memory wall dedicated to Israeli soldiers who lost their lives in order to save us (that's what the Hebrew caption says). Yaniv Shapira sent me this picture.
