The Sri-Yantra-Mandala is the image of the OM mantra, the
primordial Hindu sound of creation. When OM is intoned into a tonoscope,
it first produces a circle. As the tone is completed, the circle is filled
sequentially with concentric squares, triangles and finally, as the "mmm"
dies away, the Sri Yantra [i].
[i] How do Yantras work?
?At the basis of yantra operation is something called "shape
energy" or "form energy". The idea is that every shape
emits a very specific frequency and energy pattern. Examples of old
believes in shape energy are the yantras and mandalas of eastern
philosophies, the star of David, the five pointed star (pentagon), the
Christian cross, the pyramids and so on. Certain 'powers' are ascribed to
the various shapes.
When one focuses on a yantra, his mind is atomatically "tuned
in" by resonance into the specific form energy of that yantra. The
process of resonance is then maintained and amplified. The yantra acts
only as a "tune in" mechanism or a doorway. The subtle energy
does not come from the yantra itself, but from the macrocosm.
Basically yantras are secret keys for establishing resonance with the
benefic energies of the macrocosm. Very often the yantras can put us in
contact with extremely elevated energies and entities, being of invaluable
help on the spiritual path. Available at http://sivasakti.com/articles/intro-yantra.html

It is stunning how similar cymatic sound pattern is to the
yantra, the Star of David at the centre is surrounded by lotus petals,
spookily similar to the geometry of the yantra.

In Sanskrit, 'YANTRA' means machine or absorber of cosmic
energy, Yantra resonate with our solar system, a tuning fork connecting to
universal consciousness. Vedic scholars understood the symbiotic
relationship of wave energy; that sound vibrations ARE geometry [i]. The
entrainment phenomenon, where weak pulsations are engulfed by stronger
ones, would create the frequency of OM within the mantra-chanting devotee.
The Hindus knew the transubstantiating  ability of sound [ii] and
 Transubstantiate To change (one
substance) into another; transmute.
[i] The practice of worshipping
symbolical diagrams (yantras, cakras) of the tantra has also been traced
to the Vedas (e.g. Atharvaveda, Taittiriya Aranyaka). Available at http://ccbs.ntu.edu.tw/FULLTEXT/JR-ENG/chak.htm

Wesleyan Mission Press. [ii] The importance of sound as a divine
messenger and force is highly valued in Kabbalah, Buddhist and Hindu
textsVedic knowledge hangs in the atmosphere as a sort of ether exuded by
the gods; the truth needs only to be grasped by enlightened disciples
whose heightened senses allow them to perceive it. This is why the most
sacred Vedas are called sruti —they have been heard by holy men. Hence
the description of Vedas as sound vibration in the air:I [Krishna]
personally establish the Vedic sound vibration in the form of omkara
within all living entities. It is thus perceived subtly, just like a
single strand of fiber on a lotus stalk. Just as a spider brings forth
from its heart its web and emits it through its mouth, the Supreme
Personality of Godhead manifests Himself as the reverberating primeval
vital air, comprising all sacred Vedic meters and full of transcendental
pleasure (Bhagavata-Purana 11.21.38-39).

Whether the unified field/collective unconscious is
considered divine is a matter of semantics, it may be divine but it is
also scientific. You can call it God, OM or Quantum Physics.
The scientific paradigm is held in high esteem but String Theory, M Theory
and the Unified Field are mythologies constructed to explain a series of
baffling experiments such as the classic double slit electron experiment.
