hi! I am astudent of architecture.working, with a group of a few students,on the documentation of the qutb shahi tombs in hyderabad , be precise we are documenting the tome of mohammed Quli Qutb shah . we have come across some kind of proportions in the structure. they are amazing!.when u look at it u feel that there is some secret behind it.ill give u an example .there is one detail ,(ofsets),which has proportions in the following ratio _ 3:1:9:1:3 and such kind of more great proportions are to be found. I want to know how these are related to the design .what idea must have been behind these proportions. i recently came to know that a person called "GURDJIEFF" has done a research on these things and said there is sonme magic behind it. Ithink he is a Germanouspensky" has published a book on this subject . so can any body help me find this book or some info on the matter above and any otherinformation on this Tomb i will be greatful to them .

thanks .
