Heptagon with Type A triangles as sectors
A symbol of the seven-fold nature of Man and the seven Sephiroth of the spiritual cosmos, the heptagon has 91 hexagonal yods when its sectors are Type A triangles. Each denotes one of the subplanes of the seven cosmic planes of consciousness and one of the Trees of Life in CTOL. The 49 coloured, hexagonal yods either at the centres of tetractyses or lining their sides denote the 49 Trees of the 49-tree that maps the cosmic physical plane; the 42 white hexagonal yods on sides of tetractyses inside each sector of the heptagon denote the 42 Trees of Life above the 49-tree that map the 42 subplanes of the six cosmic superphysical planes. This is the single, polygonal representation of CTOL.
Heptagon with 2nd-order tetractyses as sectors
When its sectors become 2nd-order tetractyses, the 504 yods surrounding the centre of the heptagon denote the 504 SLs down to the top of the 7-tree, which is represented by its central yod. They are the counterpart of the 504 hexagonal yods that line the 126 tetractyses making up the 42 triangles of the Sri Yantra. Notice that there are 84 yods on the boundary of the heptagon. As they shape the polygons, it makes sense, intuitively speaking, to regard them as corresponding to the 84 dark green SLs on the central pillar between the top of the 49-tree and the top of the 7-tree, for they belong to the Tree of Life map of the cosmic physical plane — the Malkuth level of CTOL. The 7-tree is the Malkuth level of the 49-tree, which in turn is the Malkuth level of CTOL. The top of the 7-tree is the 168th SL on the Pillar of Equilibrium from the top of CTOL, where 168 is the number of Cholem Yesodeth, the Mundane Chakra of Malkuth. This is amazing evidence of how the gematria number values of the Sephiroth in the four Kabbalistic Worlds of Atziluth, Beriah, Yetzirah & Assiyah quantify their properties as manifested in each World. The superstring structural parameter 168 discovered by C.W. Leadbeater over a hundred years ago marks out the physical universe from all superphysical levels of reality.
The ancients believed that the Earth was the centre of the universe — or so we now interpret their beliefs. A deeper idea lies behind their regarding our planet as the centre of physical reality. It is that Earth symbolized the plane of physical awareness that is the centre, or fulcrum, of the spiritual cosmos (CTOL), which is encoded in the inner Tree of Life (see here) and represented by the Sri Yantra. In the Kabbalistic, astrological correspondence between Sephiroth and astronomical bodies, the planet Earth is assigned to Malkuth at the bottom of the Tree. It represents the Element Earth — the hard, solid substance of the material universe.
