The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold
symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which act as a basic component
of the Flower of Life’s design.
The Seed of Life is a symbol depicting the seven days of creation in which the
Judeo-Christian God created life. The first day is believed to be the creation of the
Vesica Piscis, then the creation of the Tripod of Life on the second day, followed
by one sphere added for each subsequent day until all seven spheres construct
the Seed of Life on the sixth day of Creation. The seventh day is the day of rest,
known as the “Sabbath” or “Shabbat.”.
In the 13th century, a Cabalist group from France succeeded, through geometric
interpretation, in dividing the entire Hebrew alphabet into an order using the
Seed of Life. The resulting alphabet was remarkably similar to that of the
Religious sage Rashi who wrote his commentaries on the Old Testament at that
time in France.
