**#8** **The Type B hexagon embodies the 91 Trees of Life in the Cosmic Tree of Life**

(a) (b) |

The hexagon is a shape that appears in Nature in many ways. For example, the benzene molecule
has six carbon atoms, each bonded to a hydrogen atom and arranged at the corners of a hexagon, and the carbon
atoms in sheets of graphite are at the corners of tiled hexagons, as are honeycombs. A Type B hexagon (that is,
a hexagon whose sectors are Type A triangles) consists of 91 yods. The **15** yods per sector
can be arranged into tetractyses in two ways. In (a), **49** black yods line sides of a Star
of David, the rest of the hexagon being filled up with 42 red yods as six sets of seven. In (b), the
**49** black yods either line the sides of the sectors or are located at the centres of the 18
tetractyses, the 42 red hexagon yods lining internal sides of tetractyses.

The 91 yods symbolize the 91 Trees of Life in the Cosmic Tree of Life, each mapping one of the 91 subplanes of consciousness
that make up the seven cosmic planes. The **49** black yods denote the
**49** Trees of the **49**-tree mapping the **49** subplanes of
the cosmic physical plane and the 42 red yods denote the remaining 42 Trees that map the 42 subplanes of the six
cosmic superphysical planes. The centre of the hexagon denotes the lowest Tree of Life/seventh subplane of the
physical plane and the yods at its six corners denote the six Trees above it in the 7-tree that maps this
plane.

The number 91 is the sum of the squares of the first six integers that can be assigned to the six points of a Star of David:
