Seven overlapping Trees of Life are composed of 260 points, lines, triangles & tetrahedra. The 3-dimensional Sri Yantra is (including the central point) composed of 260 corners, sides & triangles (see diagram). This is not a coincidence. Instead, it is one of the many indications that the Sri Yantra is a representation of the seven planes of consciousness mapped by seven Trees of Life. The seven enfolded polygons making up each half of the inner Tree of Life are composed of 260 yods outside their shared root edge, when their 47 sectors are tetractyses (see page 26 in Sacred Geometry/Tree of Life). As is proved on page 5 in Maps of reality/Cosmic Tree of Life, the seven separate polygons in one half of the inner Tree of Life, together with the four yods in the root edge, have 299 yods. This is the number of SLs in the lowest 49 Trees of Life mapping the seven planes of consciousness that constitute the cosmic physical plane (see here). They can be mapped by seven overlapping Trees of Life as well because in each case they are representations of the seven Sephiroth of Construction. So this is why the same number 260 manifests in all three sacred geometries: they represent the same thing — the universal, mathematical pattern within holistic systems, which are prescribed by the same set of numbers, namely, the gematria number values of the ten Sephiroth and their Godnames, Archangels, Orders of Angels & Mundane Chakras. For example, YAHWEH (יהוה), the Godname of Chokmah with number value 26, prescribes the geometrical composition of both the 3-dimensional Sri Yantra and seven Trees of Life as equivalent maps of the seven planes of consciousness because they are composed of 260 (=26×10) geometrical elements.
