Geometrical Psychology or the Science of Representation is the result of lifelong studies by the independent spiritual thinker and mathematician Benjamin Betts.

He attempted to represent the successive stages evolution by means of symbolical mathematical forms. These forms represent the course of development of human consciousness from the animal basis, the pure sense-consciousness, to the spiritual or divine consciousness.

Cook, suggests that these drawings holds an entire explanation of the spiritual nature of man.
