This is what the ancients built -- a carefully designed fortification that pulls back through time to the moment of primordial creation, centreing on the god, from Whom order could emanate, spreading outwards through the recapitulation of time and from there into the rest of the world.

<snip>

So what can we do that gives respect to the importance of these things, of rooting in the Nun and protecting ourselves, of retreating back through time and into the dark to find the emanation of the god Who holds this place?  What is a scale that's workable and doesn't abandon the hope of building things fit to hold the world together?

Assuming we're talking about at least a whole room here, rather than just a home altar (which would be a bit different), several ideas come to mind.

One would be a longish room subdivided by sliding doors, so you enter at one end and progress through these subsections until you get to the far end of the room where the god's statue is.

An idea for a custom-built building, referring to the groundwater thing, is to have a kind of sacred well. Or alternatively, build most of it in the modern way, but have the part under the main sanctuary built with the groundwater-foundation thing.
