The inverted triangle is visualized at the lower end of the spine, or more accurately, at the perineum, the base of the torso. While controlling and directing one's breathing, and visualizing specific colors (corresponding with specific mental and bodily functions, musical tones, etc.) one's center of attention gradually shifts upward, being imagined in successively higher locations until it reaches the crown of the head where it joins the other triangle that has its apex pointed upward. This overlapping of triangles forms the emblem of the mysterium conjunctionis, or Seal of Solomon, visualized as settling down into the center of the chest, that part of our physical anatomy we conven-tionally associate with the "heart": in an ancient sense, the "soul."

In Manchester, in Albert Square, at the front of the Town Hall, is 73 feet high Prince Albert Memorial. Above the statue there's a canopy with four sides, each with a big hexagram. It had been built in 1866 and designed by architect Thomas Worthington (1826 – 1909).
