By Donald Beaman, Professor (retired) Boston University
Barbara Hero is a current witness to a phenomenon investigated by Pythagoras
(c. 582-500 B.C.) and known to him as the Lambdoma Matrix. Nicomachus of
Gerasa recorded the process and it was picked up by Iamblichus before 350
We inherit the work of Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci, who
lived in he early thirteenth century. In time, Renaissance Europe both
discovered and lost the Lambdoma pursuing mathematics and musical intervals.
A whole language of relationship followed. ...Ratios ...Frequencies
...Wave Lengths ...Undertones and Overtones. Barbara acts as our guide
in this world of rarified discernment, giving us sounds, drawings, charts
and even laser projections, synthesized into a vast tapestry that is art
and science ...music, sound and light.
She counsels us from THE LAMBDOMA HARMONIC KEYBOARD, giving us a personal
reading based on our favorite color, and a musical interval appropriate
to our blended presence, designed to enhance our wellbeing. The call is
to harmony of spirit, mind, emotion and physicality within one dynamic
We may ask, "why is the Lambdoma Matrix important to us?" ... "Is it
anything more than a complicated opinion?" ...
Barbara reminds us that all of creation exhibits apparent laws ... of
cause and effect ... of self improving evolution ... of relationship of
parts to the whole ... "Holistic" ... "Holo-existent!" Harmonic Relationship
registers for us in this visual matrix ... Lambda as Life Force ... Prime
Mover in the whole of self-realization of our universe.
All things vibrate ... all things flow in ways appropriate to the grand
BECOMING ... and Barbara, as our guide, assists us in dispelling the veils
of fear and victimhood ... through the sounds and the sights, the crystal
energies, to reveal geometry, the inner knowing available to all of us.
She gives us techniques for discovering key-notes ... appropriate colors
and spaces for our personal surroundings. Her drawings call to us, her
tapes tone us, her spirit urges us on with the pure joy of the human adventure.
the accepted founder of Greek Mathematics was the son of Mamarchos (an
engraver of signet rings and a wealthy merchant.) He was born at Samos
(a Greek Island near Ionia) between 600 and 590 B.C. His exact date of
birth is a matter of speculation as no documentary source exists. Prior
to his birth the Oracle of Delphi (Pythoness - Prophetess of Apollo) predicted
that he would be destined to surpass all men in beauty and wisdom and would
contribute much to the benefit of mankind. Pythagoras visited many countries
and studied at the feet of masters learning the Babylonian and Chaldean
mysteries. He spent 22 years in Egypt as an initiate and priest of the
Temple at Thebes. He returned to Greece after Cyrus the Great, King of
Persia dragged him off as a prisoner to Babylon about 527 B.C. Pythagoras
established the University at Crotona, southern Italy, and taught Mathematics
based on his Egyptian knowledge of the secret wisdom of the ancients. Prior
to his time all wise men were known as Sages, "one who knows" but Pythagoras
was the first to call himself a Philosopher and defined that word as "one
who is attempting to find out."
Hero is a mathematician, visual artist, composer and writer. She exercises
all of these attributes in her mission of sharing the secrets encoded within
the ancient Pythagorean Lambdoma Matrix. She has written and lectured extensively
on the wisdom encoded within that ancient matrix of whole number ratios
attributed to Pythagoras and has been called the "Re-discoverer of Pythagoras'
Lambdoma." It is her belief that we are all part of an evolving consciousness,
and that each of us has goals that were set for us before birth, and which
we may find and fulfill during our lifetimes. For her the understanding
of the Lambdoma Matrix in many of its facets is her mission. You are invited
to explore these ancient mysteries through these web pages and the books,
recordings and documents produced by Barbara in her search to "... find
