This e-book is designed like a dakini temple with 64 niches.  8 is the square root of 64, so  each of the 8 chapters is divided into 8 sections.  My circular home uses the same schema with 64 trusses.  This is a work on progress; some pages are under construction and this table of contents is not always current.
