Citing the what now??

<< Bartfeld, Martha (1968). How to Create Sacred Geometry Mandalas. Santa Fe, NM: Mandalart Creations. p. 35., citing Drunvalo Melchizedek, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life (1999). >>

Time... does not work like that?

But on Wikipedia, it does.

Okay, now I understand... this is actually TWO SEPARATE CITATIONS, grrrr!

Matha Bartfield AND 'Mandalart Creations'

just squoozed together into one

This is just weird and wrong any way you slice it, surely.

Edited.

I do love that about Wikipedia. When you see a nonsense, you can fix it immediately.

@natecull may I just inquire as to why you were double-checking the dates of the citations of an obscure wikipedia article about an obscure geometric pattern?

@algorev Because I happen to be currently interested in the subject and particularly interested in trying to work out where the ideas came from, who published what and when. And Wikipedia is *usually* much better than this.

@algorev As to *why* I'm interested in hex geometry... I can't tell you because I don't know. My brain just is.
