Semiophysics addresses the quest for significant forms, supporting a general intelligible theory transcending human life (Thom 1990). Universal meaning and value, then, are related to physics based on quantitative laws. The form of the ancient mountain temple has guided architectural design for millennia and may be a topological model of a cosmic form ordered by physical law. Within the ancient temple, ritual functioned as a behavioral transfer of information, modeling different futures for human consciousness, while promoting adaptive behavior for survival of mind controlled by ideal information, or the universal mind of the architect or agency that inspired human creativity to construct ancient monuments. Thus, the ancient mountain temple may have operated as the medium to relay active survival information and build a lawful bridge between mind and the cosmos via ritual signifying a transformative biophysics. In a preliminary attempt to approximately verify natural law via induction, as well as the meaning of form and the value of function in geometric intuition, this paper explores Nebhepetra Mentuhotep’s Mortuary Temple and Queen Hatshepsut’s Funerary Temple at Deir el Bahari, the Dead Sea Temple Scroll design, and the early architecture of Hagia Sophia.
