Do Harmony and Proportion exist in the heavens? In 1995, A Book of Coincidence was published by John Martineau. As a study of heavenly harmonies, its appeal was visual rather than intellectual or mathematical. As John Michell wrote in his foreword, {`}The remarkable fact proved in this book is that the bodies of the solar system and their orbits are related to each other more or less precisely by a series of basic geometric figures. To perceive this fact one does not have to be a mathematician; it is clearly illustrated in John Martineau{'}s diagrams. Anyone can understand these, and the harmonies which they demonstrate among the planets are undeniably real.{'} [...]
