This work uses sacred geometry and mediating ratios that Paul derived from research into medieval cathedral design, and was composed with a fixed media track to evoke the acoustic properties of a physical cathedral space. The title refers to the human fixation with geometric proportion as a manifestation of the meta-physical, which the ancient Greeks called Logos.
