The Circle of Immortality art piece was created by Susan Griffith-Jones in 2006, along with a movie – also called ‘The Circle of Immortality’, whose layout is based on the structure of this art piece.

Its very simple construction of a circular mirror, brass covered copperplate spiral and 2 glass equilateral triangles has a very detailed and complex meaning attached to it, which is explained in full, in the book ‘The Pyramid Spiral, Dance of the Five Elements’
Susan also made an artistic documentary film designed on the shape of ‘The Circle of Immortality’ art piece also called ‘Circle of Immortality’
There are 2 parts to ‘The Circle of Immortality’ art piece;
1/ The actual structure; a spiral of 13 turns resting upon 2 equilateral triangles that sit upon a circular mirror.
2/ An exact illusory replica of the structure reflected within the mirror.
The solid part of the structure resembles consciousness occurring, whereas the perfect reflection of that conscious state appearing inside the mirror represents the physical manifest appearance arising around that conscious state, mirroring it, displaying that we sense the appearing manifest world around us according to our own perspective of it.
Not only does our conscious state of mind perfectly reflect into the mirror-like screen of appearance all around us, but the energy of this perspective simultaneously interacts with and infuses into the collective creation (by all sentient beings) of manifest appearance, which then arises as situations, objects, people, subtleties etc… occurring in our environs. The energy infused into the appearance by each sentient being holds the resultant power of its frequency and amplitude.
Having developed other pieces of work in the meantime, as well as met and been influenced by various devices of other thinkers, by 2019 Susan realised that ‘The Circle of Immortality’ art piece was not only a symbol pointing to the relationship between consciousness and appearance, but also a functioning device that may have an extraordinary effect on the physical, energetic and various subtle bodies of the human being if some simple, modifications were made to its current composition.
‘Crystal of Time’ photo collage art picture holds a further meaning of The Circle of Immortality art piece within it.
Imagined as a physical, 3 dimensional device, the spiralling golden lines of the ‘Crystal of Time’ picture display the process of transference of Hertzian waves into Longitudinal waves. This process occurs when Hertzian waves enter the vortices of 60 degrees from both sides and emerge out of the points that meet at the centre.
This process is exemplified by two of The Circle of Immortality art pieces joining at their apexes.
Two conjoined Circle of Immortality art pieces, creating infinity
When the apex of one ‘Circle of Immortality’ art piece is joined with its mirrored, equal and opposite ‘Circle of Immortality’ art piece, a closed circuit of energy is created, which may be called ‘infinite’, as it is mirrored to infinity by virtue of the two mirrors at both ends of the structures.
Potentially, this is how wave phenomena is transferred immediately as a pulse-like motion when it occurs after being converted from a transverse wave to longitudinal wave within the space between the 2 apexes ‘Diamond Lens, Doorway to Infinity’ . The pulse occurs at the centre, which simultaneously sends a vibration through the two structures, which is instantly reverberated to infinity by virtue of the mirrors, causing everything, everywhere to simultaneously appear within that longitudinal pulse.
What occurs here is symbolised by the photo collage art picture, ‘Diamond Lens, Doorway to Infinity’ .
‘Diamond Lens, Doorway to Infinity’
This pulse occurring at the centre where the two points meet simultaneously sends a vibration onwards and backwards through the two structures, which is instantly reverberated to infinity by virtue of the mirrors, causing everything, everywhere to simultaneously appear within that longitudinal pulse.
Due to the illusionary effect of the two mirrors placed at each end of the two ‘Circle of Immortality’ art pieces, the apexes of the spirals appearing inside the mirrors also touch the apexes of further spirals appearing inside both mirrors, etc… showing an infinite chain of consciousness reflected into appearance.
To test her hypothesis, Susan is currently building this device.
