Abstract: The role played by the pendulum and its variants in the development of mathematical sciences is reviewed. In particular, the case of a pendulum viz. harmonic oscillator in physics is highlighted in the context of mathematical, conceptual, conventional and engineering disciplines besides the one in mathematical physics. It is pointed out that in all these applications the concept of pendulum is used as a vehicle of knowledge mainly on the basis of structural analogy. Finally, its role is an example of the consciousness-manifesting phenomenon, will be discussed.
