Summary: Based on the very simple idea that the first text of the Bible - the account of the Creation in six days - is a word for word geometrical description of a symbolic representation of the universe, Janik Pilet invites us in this essay to follow him through every stage of this rebuilding of the world. The result is, therefore, a surprisingly balanced figure, very likely to be the mythical Solomon's Seal as it may have been kept for initiates' eyes only. The Seal's imprint can be found in other texts of the Old and New Testaments, like Ezekiel's Vision and the Revelation in particular. The author will thus reveal the secret use of this reportedly magic figure as support for Holy inspiration by a number of biblical texts authors. He will lead us into this spiritual inspiration technique's origins, many times lost and recovered throughout the ages. The Indus people, the Chaldeans Astrologers, Solomon, Ezekiel, Ezra, Saint John, Saint Luke, the Middle Ages alchemists, and those of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries mark out this path.
