Heaven and Earth, God and Man, Soul and Body as One Star of David

WHAT IS A STAR OF DAVID? A Star of David is a geometric configuration that has 6 equidistant points within a 360 degree radius or two interlocking triangles, one facing up and the other facing down...It is fair to say that it is a symbol of integration (linking heaven and earth, as above, so below) and spirituality.

- What is a Star of David?, by Mary Fortier Shea, Maryshea.com

The two triangles of the Star of David represent the inner duality of a person’s mind, such as the old good versus evil or spiritual versus physical aspects, but they also stand for the kinship between God and His chosen people-the Jews. The Star of David has one triangle pointed upward symbolic of our praise floating upward to Heaven, with the other pointed downward to symbolize God’s goodness flowing back into the world according to scholars.

Some scholars give the Star of David deep theological significance, because they say that the top triangle points upwards towards God and the other triangle points down towards the real world.

Is the Legendary 'Philosopher's Stone' Nothing more than a Star of David?

Medieval Alchemists called the Star [of David] the "Philosopher's stone," adding a tiny dot on the upper right hand point to represent the presence of God and guidance of the Divine Spirit.

- The Archetypal Mandala of the Star of David, by Margaret Starbird,  Gaiamind.com

In some alchemic writings the philosopher's stone is symbolized as a circle enclosing a hexagonal star ("the star of David"): the circle alludes to the kabbalistic *Ein-Sof ("Infinite"); the triangle which points upward represents the element fire; and the one which points downward the element water. Fire and water together constitute heaven (shamayim = esh + mayim). 

From the 17th century, this was used by alchemists to symbolize the primeval matter out of which the main element of the philosopher's stone, philosophic mercury, the "quintessence," is extracted.
