Cause and Effect
The Application of Comprehension
I have spoken to a number of people recently, and what I have found is that there is a lot of confusion in the world, confusion itself stems from a lack of comprehension. Comprehension is a key and I am minded to say; that many of us have not been given that key, or if we possess that key, we do not know how to use it. The key to comprehension, is the knowledge that the nature of a thing, is reflected in its action, the same as you can know the nature of a person, by the way they speak or act, you can know the purpose of a thing, by what it does, or is used for. The Rosicrucians’ motto, from one know all implies that if you can comprehend one thing, then you can comprehend all that there is to know. The musketeers frequently corrupted the statement, All from one and one from all.
We have come to a point where, simply voicing an opinion, appears to be adequate for most people. The trouble with this is, that people have lost sight of the fact that their opinion is based on what they do not know, rather than what they do know. This is made worse in most cases, by the fact that the opinion put forward by most people is not even theirs. This leads me to, MIND, and the fact that It is your very nature, that should direct your movement, or alternatively, someone else will be directing your movements. So when people talk about giving away your power or giving your power over to someone else, they are saying that you are effectively allowing someone else to direct your movement.
This brings me to the point of education, it is surprising to know that the education system is based on the seven cosmic principles, commonly known as the seven liberal arts. For the purposes of education they are divided into 2 parts, the Trivium and the Quadrivium. The Trivium consists of three parts; Geometry, Language and Arithmetic. The subject of Geometry is primarily concerned with points, lines and arcs. Language is primarily concerned with the correspondence between things. Arithmetic is related to the measure of a store of energy, and the measurement of the movement of things. These subjects are interrelated and correspond with the first three cosmic principles: MIND, the natural movement directed by creation; CORRESPONDENCE, the relationship between the nature of the movement created and the environment and then; VIBRATION, which is energy and motion within a given environment. Points, lines and arcs are the forms of Language, and Language is therefore the correspondence between the movement of things and the environment. Language is used to describe; the location of things, the nature of things, the energy & motion and patterns of things.
I remember being told that everything is based on a theory. It seemed prudent to look up as many theories as I could, not because I wanted to study them, but because it enabled me, to understand where people were coming from, when I spoke to them. In the same way, I watched many Youtube videos, again not to be indoctrinated by them, but just so I could identify the source of much of the information being quoted by other people. One of the most interesting theories is the holographic principle. The idea is that if you had one of those old holographic cards that we played with as children, where the image moves when you move the card. If you tore off the smallest piece of that card, It would still contain the whole image. The principle of MIND follows the same view, that there is a universal mind and that every piece of the universe is a version of that original seed, The cosmic principles follow the view that to comprehend yourself is to comprehend the whole universe.
So we begin with the view that everything is a seed. The first version or version one is the universe. The concept that the universe is growing, is natural, because all seeds grow. This is compounded by a seed’s ability to replicate. A seed is a complete thing, it contains everything that it needs for its survival, including the ability to replicate. It is packed full of energy, causing it to vibrate, which is the principle of energy and motion. At the point where there was just the one seed, it is viewed as having no awareness of itself, or its surroundings, this is due to a lack of reference points. At the point where the seed replicates itself, it becomes aware of its position in relation to the other version. This is the concept of consciousness, and introduces the concept of correspondence. The shortest route between two points is a straight line, and so the nature of the relationship, or the correspondence, is represented as such. So to put it simply, the universe began as a seed, and has developed like any fruit, to a point of maturity, where it has replicated its own seed within itself. It has now replicated itself so many times, you could view it as a giant pomegranate.
The division of the seed is interesting in that the two new seeds serve different functions. To relate this to the human condition, the seed of thought is held in your head, while the seed of regeneration is held in your genitals. The image of yin and yang, shows the division between the two seeds. A straight line, pointing from the lower seed to the upper seed, is where we derive the letter i. We use the letter, i, to represent our nature. We are said to be made up of matter, energy and mind. Mind, allows us to direct matter and energy, so everything that you can say about you, can also be said of the universe.
The universe, being the one version or first version of the seed, has understandably been studied endlessly. It is viewed to be master of itself, as it directs it’s movements according to its nature. The cosmic principles serve as a template for us to do the same.
Education is an interesting topic and many people that I speak to, have a view on what they feel is wrong with it. The simplest view however; is to compare what you left school with to what you began school with. Most people left with a tool bag, an assortment of things that they can delve into and retrieve stock answers from. The fact that they can not see the relevance of most of what they learned in the real world, does not seem to bother them. Yet you entered school, on your very first day, equipt for learning and the key to comprehension was a furry pencil case containing; a protractor, a compass, a set square, a ruler, an eraser, a pencil sharpener and some coloured crayons. So we continue with the view that everything comes from a seed. A seed is a starting point whether it be; the nature of a person, the purpose of a thing or the location of a place, everything starts from there, corresponds back to that point and reflects its nature, purpose or location. If Geometry is the study of shapes, then your geometry set allows you to explore them all. Points, straight lines and arcs, used to create shapes, that when put together create an image. I think it took about 2 minutes for everyone to get a compass out and start drawing circles, before realising, it was more entertaining to poke each other in the arm with them. A circle represents; completion, comprehension, an origin, order, a seed, life’s journey etc. You must comprehend something, before you can use it to create. So an orange is described, as a whole fruit, a complete thing, only after you have eaten it, can you plant its seeds.
A protractor creates an arc, or a whole circle. If a circle is life’s journey then an arc represents part of that journey. The letter O, represents; comprehension, completion, an origin, a seed, order or life’s journey. So the first number is, 0, because only when you comprehend something, can you use it to create. The first letter, a, is actually an O, attached to the letter l. This represents a seed that has begun to sprout or taken root. Every letter of the alphabet is a word image and the natural order of things is to plant the seed first.
A= a thing, a place or a person. B= exist, existing, existence, to be. C= arc, arch, part, path or journey. D= direction. E= is, a state or condition. F= form, shape etc. G= force, intent, will. H= higher or above, over, elevate. I= truth, centre, middle, nature. K= the action of taking a path. L= to come and go, an action, or to become. M= movement or motion. N= born, birth, new, produced or created. O= completion, comprehension, origin, origination, order, a seed or a journey. P= post, position, place or point. Q= rule, govern, preside. R= back, again, around, against. S= to seed, to grow, to plant etc. T= time, such as before, after, now, then, etc. U = self, yourself, you. V = version. W= image. X= reflection. Y= related to. Z= a cycle.
If we look at the relationship between vowels, A, represents a place, a thing or a person. E, represents; the state or condition of a place, a thing or a person. I, represents; the nature, purpose or centre of a place, a thing or a person. O, represents; the comprehension, completion, entirety, journey, order or seed of a place, a thing or a person. U, represents your relationship with a thing, a place or a person. If we take the word, aunt, and look at the etymology of language, we find that the etymon of the word aunt, reflects your relationship to a person through birth. The letter, T, is a suffix related to time, so we could say at the moment of . The letter A, represents a person that you are related to, and the letter N represents birth or creation.
Etymology is the study of words, using the etym, or route which is usually 3 letters, you can generally identify the nature of the thing being referred to. An example would be, if you stretched out your hand to receive a pound, you would shape your hand accordingly. The nature of this action is captured in the word image, CUP. The outside letters relate to the central letter,. C= arc, U= self, P= position. So your, arced position, to arc around your position, or position yourself as an arc. So anything designed in this image is therefore described, as a cup. The correct name for a glass is a glass cup, as in a cup, made of glass. There are three parts to comprehension, or it is better said that, the nature of a thing, is reflected in its action. The word image, CUP, therefore reflects the nature or purpose of arching your hand, which allows you to drink, collect, receive, give, etc.
This is not for the faint of heart, but the word image, GOD, reflects the nature of the universe. G = force, O = origin, D = directed, a force, directed from its origin or, a force comprehending it’s direction. The universe can summon a wind in the north and blow it south, fill a cloud and cause it to rain on one side of the street. It can not only create a lightning bolt, but direct it to take out a single blade of grass. It causes the sun to shine from its location. So, if you are made in that image, then that clearly says, god, is a word image reflecting the nature of the universe. As an example, raise your right arm, you have directed your force upward, the force being directed originated in your right shoulder. Nod your head, you have directed your force downward, the force being directed, originated in your neck. To understand, is not the same as to comprehend. You start your educational life ready and equipped to learn, yet after 11 years of studying, most of us have no comprehension of the trivium, and how it corresponds to the quadrivium of the seven liberal arts.
The relationship between vowels demonstrates that each letter of the alphabet has its own meaning. Geometry is therefore the study of shapes or forms, Language, is the use of shapes or forms to create images which we commonly describe as words. To relate this back to comprehension, the nature of a thing, a place or a person can be captured in words. If we consider the paper as a mirror, then the word drawn on that piece of paper is the image, which encapsulates the nature of the thing, place or person we seek to describe. It is therefore a confusion to say that language is a form of communication, what should be said is that language is the use of forms to communicate. It is then simpler to see that, as everybody uses shapes or forms to communicate, there is only one language. If you look at the etymon of WORD, we see that the D, is a suffix which represents Direction, the letter W, represents image, the letter R, represents; back, again, around, against and the letter, O, represents the origin or referent. So we have an image that directs us back to the origin, or referent, the thing being referred to.
Dialectic, is the logic applied when reasoning, so using geometry to reflect the shapes seen in nature would require analysis. Rhetoric, would be the need for effective communication, a way to relate the shapes back to the referent. Grammar would then apply as rules used in putting shapes together. A cat in french is chat, the etym of the word, (the smallest unit), is, c = arch, h = higher, a = a thing, while the suffix, is t = time. So it is described by its nature. A thing, that arches higher, often. Anyone who has observed a cat, knows that a cat arches its back when it stretches, or when cornered or upset. The English version reflects the same observation, as does the polish version, kot, which observes the cat arching its entirety. So grammar governs the way words are put together. The letters are used to create an image of the action, of the thing they refer to, and a sentence is just a longer expression. Music is then the sounding of forms and an extension of speech. So communication requires compositional techniques to create an image that can be clearly seen. The idea that different languages exist, is a non sense, instead language, is a universal concept, separated only by dialect. An L, is the shape of a leg, it means to go or come, become or action, LL, means, to become the action. L, however has no direction, so, b, and, d, have developed from the letter L. A leg is a leg in any dialect however, the compositions using the letter, L, will differ according to the local practise. Whether you paint, draw, sign or scribe the letter L, you are using its shape to communicate and that is the very definition of language.
Why does your communication need to be clear?. So that the person you are communicating with, can literally see what you mean. This leaves their mind clear for consideration. A poor expression is a failure to paint a complete picture, leaving the recipient, trying to compile the image in their heads, taking up valuable thinking space. Probably the best example of language we have, is the bible. John, chapter 1, in the beginning was the word, SUBJECT, and the word was with god, LOCATION, and the word was god, ACTION. These are the rules of grammar. The bible goes on to use language directionally in relation to the truth. LIVE, EVIL, to be toward the truth or away from the truth. LIVED, DEVIL, to have been toward the truth or away from the truth in life.
The principle of CORRESPONDENCE, is based on the axiom, as above so below. It holds that what is true of matter, is true of energy and of mind, the best example of this, is the rainbow. Most people remember the order of the rainbow, as Richard of York gave battle in vain. That is; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Unsurprisingly, these correspond directly with your root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra, brow or third eye chakra and your crown chakra. It would be reasonable to conclude that a rainbow is a reflection of the Earth’s chakras. The correspondence between the colours is your guide to comprehension. There are 4 primary colours, Red, Yellow, Blue and Violet, the combination of the colours either side create the secondary colour in between. Orange, Green and Indigo.
I am minded to say that, if your crown chakra is violet, it would lead me to the conclusion that space is Violet. It then brings to mind the number of people who when asked what colour is the sky, say it is blue. It is reasonable to conclude that it is in fact indigo, but is viewed through a yellow filter caused by sunlight. If you have ever watched a sunrise or sunset, that seemed extra special, then you have probably had a glimpse of the violet of space, when the filter has been at its weakest. Anyway, the principle of correspondence is that, if matter, energy and mind are governed by the same laws, then we can study the unknown, by means of the known.
The Trivium is therefore about comprehension. We need comprehension before we can move on to the Quadrivium. The quadrivium is made up of four parts; Music, Astronomy, Geography and Dialogue, these again relate to the cosmic principles; Rhythm, Polarity, Cause and Effect and Gender. It's easy to see how music and the principle of rhythm are connected. It is however important to apply all three parts of the Trivium, to each of the four parts of the quadrivium. Music therefore is composed of points, lines and arcs. We could identify the notes as points, which are written on lines and we can look at a scale such as C Major, and see how the notes correspond to each other, the measurement is reflected in that each note in a scale, is one tone apart. semitones are half the measure of one tone. We can look at Astronomy and identify the planets as points, we can describe their orbits as arcs, and we can see the correspondence between them. Geography is concerned with the Earth, the nature of locations; such as deserts, mountains, oceans, how they correspond to each other and the natural movement of them. We talk about mountains in terms of their distance above sea level, as we talk about the sea floor in terms of distance below sea level.
It is therefore surprising, to speak to so many people, who are unaware that they have spent 11 years at school, studying the Cosmic principles. It is however unsurprising, to see how a lack of comprehension leads to so much confusion. The view that there are many different languages in the world, is commonly held. I find the Bible an interesting point of reference, Genesis, chapter 11, states that the whole world had one language and few words. It is interesting how the reference to language becoming confused, has led to the view that everyone went off and created their own language. It actually refers to the use of your tongue when speaking. The difference between breathy, guttural and nasal tones. I am minded to say that, the Confusion of language, can be seen here in England; from Old English, to middle English to modern English. In order to remove the confusion, I should really refer to English as a dialect, a dialect being a localised usage of language. Modern English seeks to introduce connotative linguistics, the introduction and use of connotations, seeks to confuse the true meaning of words. In many cases, it seeks to remove the referent, the thing being referred to. An example is the word generator, if the nature of a thing is reflected in its action, then all we can really determine from this word is that it is something that generates, what is missing from the word, is what is being generated. This word therefore needs a denotation to be added to it, to identify what it is that it generates. It has opened us up to people speaking, without actually saying anything. Middle English seems to be more concerned with removing grammatical gender and borrowing from; Latin, French, and low German.
A separation has occurred, between those who speak properly and those who make a common mistake when they speak. This is best expressed by the phrase, the cat, sat on the mat. The proper order of a sentence is; subject, location, action. so the cat, on the mat, sat. This common miss ordering of a sentence, is a reflection of the education system. Many people I have spoken to, would agree that there is a problem with our education system, however they are unable to agree or identify what the problem is. Most will speak endlessly, about the effects based on what they see around them. However, treating the effects is not a solution, identifying and rectifying the cause is the only solution. The sole purpose of language is communication. It is the use of forms to communicate. Forms are shapes, whether drawn on a wall, painted on paper or written in a book or on a scroll. There is therefore one language in the world. So what is education? Education is the growing of your knowledge, of your nature, and the nature of the things around you, and the comprehension of the correspondence between them. What lesson did not involve the use of shapes; Maths, Geography, Science, Chemistry etc. Education is about language and your ability to communicate. If you spent 11 years at school and left without that comprehension, then what did you learn?
Take the change in 1976, from comprehensive to secondary education. At one point, poor people did not go to school, when it became compulsory for everyone to go to school, it created a predicament. how to maintain the social divide. If everyone is educated to the same level, common folk would no longer exist. Who would run the petrol stations, the cash tills, who would perform the manual labour. Secondary education, deemed to maintain the status quo. However, teachers who came from the comprehensive system, continued to teach at that level. When they left the newer teachers became more reliant on the curriculum and, after 40 years of secondary education, we are now seeing the result. If language is not used for its proper purpose, but instead is reduced to small talk, about; Kim Kardashian’s arse, Eastenders updates, texting, sexting, twittering, mere babble. How then,do you communicate? The answer is, by using emotional reactions, infantile behaviour. In short, society has been retarded. There are conversations everyday, about the deskilling of the population, how we are being dumbed down, etc, but they seem to miss the point. When someone is screaming into someone else’s face, at point blank range, escalating until their own face is red and the vein in their forehead is standing up, they are imitating the behaviour of an infant. An infant will cry until it is blue in the face, until someone comes to attend to it..
The current education system is said to have been adopted from Austria. After losing a war it was determined that soldiers who thought for themselves were useless. What was needed were soldiers who could follow orders. The education system was geared towards producing such men. It was later adopted here. Look at young people with their postcode wars and their bandanas. Look at London, with its gangs practising gorilla warfare. Young people, educated to follow orders just waiting for direction. ‘This man owes me money, go wet him up’.
There are now moves afoot to return to the comprehensive system. Not because of the turmoil in our streets, but because corporations aren’t getting the workforce they require. The idea that the government, paying for your secondary education, would produce a productive workforce is at an end. Instead it is overwhelmed by the fall out: the restless behaviour of would-be soldiers without a war to fight; the anti-social behaviour, the infantile and mindless behaviour which is now being wrongly labelled as mental health. Language is an important issue and should be seen as such.
If the nature of a thing is reflected in its action, then comprehension requires us to see the correspondence between the nature of a thing, and its action. This takes us to the 3rd Cosmic Principle, which is Vibration. Vibration is described as energy and motion, this corresponds with Arithmetic, which is concerned with the measurement of energy, and the measurement of motion. To relate this to the human condition, the best example would be; Me, Myself and I. Where, I. represents the nature of our being and, SELF, represents the place that our nature is stored, the human body. So one can say that I am self-contained. The human body is therefore the mirror which reflects our actions, and the things we say and do are the image of us referred to as Me. To bring this back to points, lines, and arcs; SELF, is a point or location, nature is represented by a straight line, and the parts of the human body move in an arc. So MIND, is to direct the movement created by your nature. A common expression is that your actions should be measured, that is to say they should be considered or that, you should be mindful of your actions. This relates to a later principle known as Cause and Effect.
I am minded to say that we live in a time of self image, that is to say that the image we project, has become more important to some than whether that image is a reflection of their nature. This comes back to MIND, and the directing of our movement. Celebrity and celebrity lifestyles now drive the movement of many. The constant reinventing of self image demonstrates the lack of comprehension, the need to imitate others in appearance, attitude and mannerisms. This distortion of self with tattoos, piercings and plastic surgery, detracts from the image created by your words and actions. Like a fairground mirror, people have become distorted and unrecognisable. We have lost sight of each other and our purpose, in short many have lost their MIND. I return you to the fact that It is your very nature that should direct your movements, or alternatively someone else will be directing them. So when people talk about giving away your power or giving your power over to someone else they are saying, that you are effectively allowing someone else to direct your movement.
The principle of vibration holds; that everything is in a state of perpetual motion, everything vibrates. The only difference between matter, energy and mind is the frequency at which they vibrate. It holds that at one end of the scale a thing vibrates so quickly it appears to be standing still, while at the other end of the scale a thing vibrates so slowly it also appears to be standing still. Everything in between is a varying degree of vibration. We can use Music as an example, the 7 octaves of music tuned up to 44 octaves, becomes light. So going back to the rainbow, each band represents a different rate of vibration, the faster it vibrates, the brighter the colour appears, until it is beyond the spectrum of the naked eye. This is the point at which violet disappears. To put it simply; we vibrate slowly and appear to be solid, given the right conditions, a rainbow which vibrates rapidly, will appear to stand still. Everything in between is at a varying rate of vibration and subject to our perception.
Arithmetic relates to Vibration and is described using language. As you need to comprehend something before you can use it to create, the first number zero, is the letter O. The action of using your comprehension to create something, is represented by the number 1, which is the letter l, and corresponds to MIND. A new thing, beginning its life cycle, is represented by the number 2, which is the letter, z, and relates to, CORRESPONDENCE. The number 3, is the letter, M and the letter W, rotated, this represents both movement and image, and corresponds to VIBRATION. The number 4, is the letter l, combined with the straight line, which symbolises nature and shows that one is connected to the other, this corresponds to RHYTHM. The number 5, represents the forming of a path, and this corresponds with POLARITY. The number 6, which is the letter g inverted, represents the path of the lower seed, and corresponds with CAUSE AND EFFECT. The number 7, which is the letter V rotated, corresponds with GENDER. The number 8, which is the letter O, represents the splitting of the seed. The number 9, which is the letter g, represents the path of the higher seed. The number 10 therefore represents the next tier and establishes a sequence.
Worryingly, it is held that he who understands the principle of Vibration, has grasped the sceptre of power. Vibration produces emissions such as electricity and magnetism. Electricity can be viewed as the power you have over yourself and others. It leads to expressions like; that person really drains my energy, or he or she is such a live wire. In spiderman 1, uncle Ben warns that with great power comes great responsibility. This is why it is important to be mindful of your words and actions. Magnetism is where the principle of attraction has been derived from. The problem with magnetism is that not only can you attract, but you can also be drawn. This brings us back to MIND, if you are not in control of your movement someone else will be. The draw of mass media, ideology, psychology and false imagery, has led to a loss of self direction. Tesla mastered electricity and magnetism, and came up with inventions that have never seen the light of day, this should give you an idea of the ideology of the world we live in. Conversely hypnotists, like Paul Mckenna, have demonstrated how easily MIND can be manipulated. Imagine how many people exist behind the scenes who also comprehend this.
It is important to know that only when you realise something for yourself do you know it. MIND, CORRESPONDENCE and VIBRATION make up your comprehension. This means that we can study the unknown, by means of the known. To determine the purpose of a light bulb, we can look at how it corresponds to its environment, and the energy and motion it creates. It is designed to be off during the day when it is light, and on during the evening when it is dark. It enables activity to continue, that would otherwise have to cease. It can be concluded that its purpose is to extend the available hours of activity.
From your very first breath, you are introduced to the concept of self mastery. After nine months floating in fluid and being fed through your belly button, you are introduced to the world. A slap on the bottom introduces you to air, and a lifelong commitment to breathe in and out. The more you empty your lungs, the more they fill up. This must be a most concerning experience for a newborn. But eventually you come to the realisation that it is not harmful and settle into a rhythm. The experience becomes a source of pleasure, and you begin to experiment, blowing air bubbles, gurgling and so on. The mastering of breath does not end there. A baby is soon comfortable breathing when lying on its back, but not so comfortable when it comes to sitting up. While parents are keen to sit a child up, they tend to overlook that it requires a change in breathing pattern. This leads to a lot of uncomfortable crying from the baby, and the constant flipping themselves onto their backs. Parents are often heard saying, poor baby, did you fall over? as they sit them up again. No sooner have they moved than the child flips itself back on to its back. This learning curve continues when babies are finally able to crawl, they crawl quickly and stop, They flip themselves onto their bums, which is now a new default position, and laugh. They then crawl again rapidly and stop. The crawling position requires some experimentation and the child has learnt that the quickest way to fill its lungs is to laugh. Parents tend to interrupt the experiment, thinking the laugh is an invite to get involved. They are heard to say things like, are you enjoying yourself?, are you having fun? as they pick the child up and interrupt its experiment. This leads to more dissatisfied crying. Standing up takes getting used to, and walking requires more adaptation of breathing technique. A child measures its breath, it can be seen to put its hand in its mouth having wet it’s fingers thoroughly. This allows it to feel the difference between warm breath coming out and the cold air going in. The child braces itself and then runs full tilt, mouth wide open and laughing, so it can draw maximum breath. Climbing trees, swimming, running, all these are yet to come.
Rhythm is defined as the ebb and flow, and It corresponds with music. The best example would be; one of those pendulums made up of ball bearings, that people used to have on their desks. Once set in motion it swings from side to side. The height of the swing, is matched by the return swing. The view held is that everything flows, everything has its tide. So thoughts flow in and out of your head, They also swing from positive thoughts to negative thoughts. Patterns can be seen, like the tide coming in and going out, like the rise and fall of a wave. The measure or timing can be construed as a pulse, or beat. So everything beats time. Genesis, chapter 1, verse 14. Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens, to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. This describes the rhythm of the universe.
Comprehending your chakras as energy centres with different rates of vibration, allows you to temper yourself. Fear is a low vibration, pleasure slightly higher, your will or desire is higher still, Your heart chakra, represents your nature and is considered your centre. Your communication or throat chakra is followed by your brow chakra, and the highest vibration is your crown chakra. Most of us are aware of our emotional state, for example, when we are elated or getting angry. We are familiar with the patterns. But each chakra has two extremes. Fear/survival, joy/guilt, will/shame, love/loss, truth/lies, clarity/confusion and sense/nonsense. As language is directional, we use expressions like, you’re looking at this backwards, or your living backwards, be forward thinking, etc. But each pendulum has its extremes, If you are over excited by some things, you will be bitterly disappointed by others. If you are not a very excitable person you are only ever, mildly disappointed. The cosmic principles are a global phIlosophy and as such, are pretty much everywhere you look. The red top newspapers print a horoscope daily, telling you of external things that may affect your vibrations. The idea is that if you understand what is affecting you and how, you can compensate. Psychologists like to suggest that if you know your triggers you can avoid them. It is more realistic to say, that there are things that you can compensate for, and others, that you need to prepare for. As everything moves in cycles, knowing the patterns allows you to show fortitude when it is required, temperance when it is required and to exercise good judgement. Timing is everything as they say.
The best example of RHYTHM is a clock. A clock not only reflects its purpose, but is representative of all the principles. The purpose of a clock is to mark time and its purpose is represented by the point where the hands meet, and the numbering around its face. Its nature is reflected by its hands and it moves in an arc. It is never at rest, it represents the cycle of day and night, and its movement can also be viewed as a rise and fall. The effects of time shape our daily lives and dictate our position at certain times of the day. Clock watching, represents its ability to draw you in and also, the powerful effect it has on how long or short time seems.
Knowledge is given in degrees, as anyone who has attended university will know. Older clocks have two marks between each number instead of 4, each mark represents 1 degree of knowledge. So, 3 o’clock represents 9 degrees of knowledge, 6 O’clock, 18 degrees of knowledge and 11 O’clock, 33 degrees of knowledge. This pattern can be seen in masonry and on a pie chart.
A line drawn from 12-6, divides the circle in half and represents the two arcs of GENDER. A line drawn from 9-3, represents nature and divides the circle again. The CORRESPONDENCE between these two lines reflects RHYTHM. The four segments then reflect the four seasons, with 3 months in each and also the four stages of self mastery; belief, faith, fruition, and mastery. As a child with no point of reference, we believe what we are told, 1-9 degrees of knowledge. As we join the outside world, our belief is challenged and we develop faith in ourselves, 10-18 degrees of knowledge. We reach fruition and teach ourselves, 19-27 degrees of knowledge, We then teach in order to master what we have learnt, 28-36 degrees of knowledge.
The piris reis map, which is drawn using spherical trigonometry, fits perfectly into the face of a clock. The lines from 12-6 and 3-9, then divide the map perfectly into four segments, this represents the principle of POLARITY. It shows Egypt as the centre of the world and that the four corners of the world are in the centre, where the four segments meet. Each segment has exactly the same amount of land and water in.
Polarity is the fifth cosmic principle, it corresponds to Astronomy. Astronomy is related to the naming of the stars and understanding how their orbits affect the earth and everything on it. So horoscopes are in fact talking about the effect the planets have on you. Every 52 days after your birthday your focus changes, This is caused by the movement of the planets, which dictate the rhythm of your life. The Sun cycle in the first 52 days, is a period of opportunity, a focus on character and reputation will lead to advancement. The Moon cycle is a period for emotional security, it is a good time to start things, but only things that can be completed during the period. The Mars cycle is a period that requires you to exercise discrimination and good judgement. High energy levels make you want to do great and important things, however good judgement is needed. Mercury’s cycle is when your mental and spiritual nature is stimulated. It is important to articulate your thoughts, which will clear your mind, so the falsehood and deception of others can be avoided. Jupiter’s cycle is a good period for long term planning, you will be more open, more confident, and display benevolence and sympathy. Venus’s cycle is the best period for rest, renewing friendships and cultivating new ones. Saturn’s cycle is a period of preparation, elements of your life gradually fall away to make way for those that are newer and better. You are likely to be despondent and easily discouraged, but know what is happening and avoid being impulsive.
But let us take it back to, points, lines and arcs. If you spread your arms and legs, you will form a cross. Your right leg represents your earthly ties such as family. Your left leg represents water, the energy that nurtures the earth. Your right hand represents fire, your passion or desire. Your left hand represents wind, which fans the flames of desire. Your position should be in your centre, this represents balance. As you are able to access all 4 poles, if your passions run high, then you are able to use water to cool them. If your fire gets too close to your water, causing it to boil, you can use your wind to blow off steam. The concept of being bipolar, is to be unbalanced, movement from your centre point isolates you between 2 poles. If you are on your earth and wind diagonal, you can not access water to nurture your family etc. If you are on your fire and water diagonal, you can not access wind to fan the flames. As a result, trying to use your wind to nurture your earthly ties, is destructive, it is like unleashing a whirlwind. Keeping it away from your earthly ties makes you a blow hard. The guy down the pub, who could have achieved all his dreams, if it wasn’t for his family, etc. Bringing water towards your fire, simply puts it out, and adversely, bringing your fire towards your water causes it to boil. Keeping them apart, would categorise you as a wash out. The heavy drinker, who has little or nothing to do with his family, and just needs a chance. Bipolar is a serious condition, so I am not poking fun at it. It can be very isolating and lead to flights of fantasy. Escapism can lead some to creating an alternate reality, where they keep reinventing themselves.
The principle states that everything has two poles, each with its pair of opposites. It also states that extremes meet. So it is reasonable to conclude that the only place this can happen, is in your centre. Being mindful of the factors affecting your decisions and the rhythm of life, allows you to exert your will, instead of reacting. This allows you to manage your polarity.
Take the points of a compass; North, South, East and West, and apply them to a map of the world. The world divides into four quadrants, the corners of the four quadrants align with Egypt, making it the centre of the world. This means that Africa is a continent that is divided into four territories. If you have ever wondered why there is so much focus on Egypt, or why there is so much conflict over the African continent, this may provide a clue. Interestingly, when speaking about Africa; not only is it often described as if it were a single country, but it is also described as having north at the top, south at the bottom with east and west in between. It is reasonable to say that it has a North West, a North East, a South West and a South East.
I am often chastised for having a utopian view of life. I like to point out that utopia is the moment that you comprehend the natural position of things.
CAUSE AND EFFECT
Every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause. This principle corresponds with Geography. For a mountain to rise up above the surface, something must have happened below the surface. Similarly the mountain’s appearance has an effect on the surrounding landscape. This principle is about your effect on your environment and your environment’s effect on you. MIND, is to direct the movement created by your nature. A common expression is that your actions should be measured, that is to say that they should be considered, or that you should be mindful of your actions. To expand this, first consider that every thought is a seed. The bible says that we are the sower of seeds. That is to say that our words and actions spread those seeds. Some seeds fall amongst the rocks and do not prosper, some fall amongst the thorns and are choked, while some fall on good ground and prosper. While we are familiar with the disappointment of ideas, being lost or failing, actions not being appreciated, and can measure the effect on ourselves. Our words and actions have an effect on ourselves and others. Words have resonance and actions have consequences. So the things you say and do, will manifest themselves in the world around you. They say what goes around comes around, though it may not be at the time it was said or done. It may even be so long after the action, that you are unable to identify that you were the cause.
I am often saying to people, that the only part of you that can be controlled, is your reaction. There are those who once they know how to get a reaction out of you, will use it to their advantage over and over again. Comprehending that your mind dominates the lower levels of you, gives you control over your reactions. This brings us back to MIND, and RHYTHM. Rather than be carried along by your environment, and the wills of other people, see the pattern as it unfolds and be proactive, dominate your moods and movements, be a cause, rather than react to the effects.
I have spoken to many people about the soul. The word ends in an L, so it is an action, the action of a seed that you originated. I would describe it as your footprint, as your soles are on the bottom of your feet. It is the effect of your words and actions on your environment. It is what is remembered of you, both in life and after death. The question it raises, is have you blessed the things you have touched, or have you cursed them. As language is directional, I would say, have you nurtured the people and things around you, as in helping them to grow, or have you held or set them back.
Cause and Effect implies a sequence of events linking together like the links on a chain. So the cause creates the effect and the effect itself then becomes a cause. It smacks of inevitability but you find that avoiding one situation simply leads you into another. Hollywood has had fun with this topic in films like Final Destination, The Adjustment Bureau etc.
The principle of Gender, is that everything has a masculine and feminine side. If we are made up of matter, energy and mind, then we have male and female form, we have masculine and feminine thoughts, we have masculine and feminine energy. That is to say that, whether you are male or female, you contain both masculine and feminine energy and thoughts. Strategy and planning, can be construed as a masculine energy, this is to do with generation, regeneration and creation. Nurture would be construed as a feminine energy, and nothing can be generated, regenerated or created without nurture. I would point you to the story of creation in the bible. Genesis, chapter 1, Day 7, “In the day that the earth and heavens were made, when no plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up, because it had not rained on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground. A mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground”. I have many times expressed the view that all the planning and strategy in the world will not help you, if you do not nurture your environment. If you after 30 years, return to your country of origin. Proceed with plans to build the biggest house, in an area where people are poor, and fail to do anything for those around you. It should come as no surprise, that you are despised and likely to be robbed. I take you back to POLARITY, and the image of yourself as a cross, wherein your left leg and hand are your female energies, and your right hand and foot are your male energies. One is creative and pushes things along, while the other is nurturing and carries things along.
GENDER, corresponds with Dialogue in the liberal arts. Dialogue relates to the application of GENDER to the previous 6 cosmic principles. I refer you again to the face of a clock, with a line drawn from 12-6. The right arc ), representing the feminine and the left arc ( representing the masculine. I would also refer you to the Zodiac and its correspondence to POLARITY.
There is clearly a world agenda and there are people behind the scenes, who understand us better than we understand ourselves. But it is important to be aware that there is nothing you can know, that I can not, and nothing I can know, that you can not. In short, no one is smarter than anyone else. We are currently approaching the Age of Aquarius, this age corresponds to the principle of, CAUSE AND EFFECT. We are said to be in the precession of the equinox, meaning that the zodiac signs are in reverse order. We can corroborate this using the bible. It begins with the sun at its highest point in the tropic of cancer. It then moves to the story of Adam and Eve representing gemini, the twins. Taurus is depicted in the story of the golden calf, Aries is depicted in the story of Jericho. Jesus was a fisher of men depicting Pisces. The man in the street, can be excused for believing that those behind the scenes, are way ahead of him, because, while we are approaching the age of Aquarius, the 2,120 year cycle of CAUSE AND EFFECT, those behind the scenes, are focussed on the age of Capricorn, the cycle of GENDER. You may have noticed the focus on gender neutral schools, the increase in transgender and sex change operations. The Zodiac is a circle and we can be said to be behind the curve, or, it is better said, that those behind the scenes are ahead of the curve.
THE APPLICATION OF COMPREHENSION
If I were to take three viewpoints, and look at the correspondence between them, then I would expect to be able to feed my comprehension. So let’s take the Hopi Indians, who claim to have been around since the creation of the earth. They say that since the creation of the earth, the earth shook three times. Let’s then compare that to the view of scientists. Scientists say that the earth was once one continent, known as Pangea and that the continent broke into three. This would equate with the Hopi’s first shaking of the world. Science then says that America, India and Africa, which were part of a single continent known as Gondwana, broke up. This would equate with the Hopi’s second shaking of the world. Asia and Africa, then drifted through the space created by Antarctica and collided with Eurasia. This would equate to the Hopi’s third shaking of the world. The bible states that the whole land was once known as, Cush, and that there was a great flood. This huge displacement of water would coincide with the breaking up of Pangea and with the Hopi’s first shaking of the world. The Bible then says that 500 years after the flood, in the time of, Peleg, the land was separated. This would coincide with the breaking up of Gondwana and with the Hopi’s second shaking of the world. The bible goes on to say that people came from the east to Shinar, and built a huge tower, but the tower was destroyed. It is hard to say whether the people came from the east in boats, before the Saudi Arabian peninsula collided with Eurasia, or if they came after. But despite the creation of the Himalayas, and the Hindu Kush, the land is still moving. So settlement of the land, after the collision could have caused the fall of the tower. This would coincide with the third shaking of the world.
If we go back to the earlier point of the world being divided into four quadrants. We can determine who occupies each quadrant, and in turn, add to our comprehension of the world. The South West quadrant would be home to the Red Indian, such as the Hopi. The North East quadrant would be home to the Yellow Indian. The North West quadrant would be home to the White Indian, and the South East quadrant would be home to the Black Indian. The quadrants are often referred to as Gates, so we for instance live in the North West Gate. The Red Indian would be, the Merians, the White Indian would be, the Arians, the Black Indian would be, the Farians and the Yellow Indian would be, the Orians.
I refer you back to another earlier point about speaking in tongues. The pronunciation and spelling of these names vary immensely, and have also changed over time. The Merians probably became, the Amerians, and ultimately, the Americans, with variations such as, the Amerindians, along the way. Different pronunciations exist such as; Mouri, Moori, Maori and Mauri. The Farians probably became, the Afarians, and ultimately, the Africans, with variations such as, the Afaricans, along the way. Different pronunciations exist such as; Phari or Pahari, Quari and Cari. The Orians or Oriens probably became the Orientals, with variations such as huri, huni, Hourri, and Hari. The Arians probably became the Aryans, with different pronunciations such as; Adrian, Aegean and Athenian. Phonetics is the study of speech sounds, and it is amazing what you can uncover by speaking in tongues.
The coming to prominence of each of these peoples has given us the world we know. According to the Hopi Indians, each of these people have an element associated with them, which they were tasked to master. The Red Indian’s element is Earth, and in their Age, the world was one piece of land which they walked across, rode across. canoed and kayaked their way across, to share cosmology, botany and farming etc with the rest of the world. The Yellow Indian’s element is Wind, and in their Age, the world was divided so they put sails on boats and travelled the world, sharing their knowledge of wind power, wind currents, kites, wind turbines, windmills, hurricanes, monsoons etc. The Black Indian’s element is Water, and in their Age, they shared their knowledge of Jet Streams, currents, watermills, aqueducts, viaducts etc. The White Indians element is Fire, and in their Age, they have developed knowledge of smelting, soldering, tempering, kilns, furnaces and forging. The focus appears to have been on combustion and propulsion leading to guns, canons, missiles, aeroplanes, rockets etc.
Knowledge of their elements is not the only thing they have shared; the movement of people has led to the mixing of genes and the changing face of the world. Phonetics gives us a clue to some of the mixtures. The Fari, or phari, mixed with the Ori, may have given us the Pharaohs. The Meri, mixed with the Cari, may have given us mercury, in another tongue this may be Manchuri or Manchurian. The Cari are probably the Caribbeans, and so on. If an Age is 2,120 years and we are now in the fifth Age of man, that is 10,000 years of mixing, resulting in upwards of 16 different admixtures. It is unsurprising that people around the world now look very similar. At the end of each Age, these peoples wrote down the comprehension of their time, so the information would be preserved and help future generations.
The books are a compilation of scriptures and are about the 7 cosmic principles, which reflects the nature of the universe. So if the universe conforms to the holographic principle, then the books would too. There would be 7 Books in the series and each story, in each book would reflect all 7 principles. So we have;
The Vedas, which correspond to MIND,
The Tao, which relates to CORRESPONDENCE,
The Old testament, which corresponds to VIBRATION,
The New testament, which corresponds to RHYTHM,
The Koran, which corresponds to POLARITY,
The Torah, which corresponds to CAUSE AND EFFECT.
I have not yet identified the seventh book, but it’s probably fairly obvious. Anyway, the story of creation
day 1, MIND,
day 2, CORRESPONDENCE,
day 3, VIBRATION,
day 4, RHYTHM,
day 5, POLARITY,
day 6, CAUSE & EFFECT,
day 7, GENDER. The pattern then starts again
The Gospel of St Thomas says that the pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge and hidden them. This brings to mind two points; firstly that a ledge is a limit to a thing, so knowledge implies a limit to your ability to know; secondly the best place to hide something is in plain sight. The keys to removing the limitation is comprehension. So reading the scriptures without comprehension is to merely look at the pictures. As an example, most of us have seen the Wizard of Oz. Most would say that it is a story about a young girl, who bumped her head, fell into a deep sleep and imagined a make-belief world where she became embroiled in a war between witches. She met some colourful characters along the way and went to see a Wizard, who turned out to be a little man hiding behind a very large curtain. However those who have seen beyond the mere images on screen, see that it is in fact a story about a particular moment in American history, and that the dispute is about what should be used to back fiat currency. In the book Dorothy wears silver slippers, representing silver as a commodity. Dorothy follows the yellow brick road, representing gold as a commodity, she meets a scarecrow who represents the sweat equity of the farmers of America, she also meets a tin man, representing tin as a commodity. The cowardly lion is a congressman who should represent the best interest of the American people, but is afraid of the banks. As American currency carries the strap line ‘in god we trust, the group go off in search of the self-appointed representative of god on earth.
So what is it that is unseen by the avid bible reader? A Bull is an edict, a covenant or testimony, as in a papal bull. There are six books; the Vedic principles, the Tao, the Old Testament and New testament, the Koran and the Torah. This then gives a simple explanation to the word BIBLE, which means two bulls. Each of the six books corresponds to both a cosmic principle, as highlighted earlier and also to a star sign. Day 4 of the creation story says that stars are for signs and for seasons. So in this case they signpost you to an Age of man.
The Vedas - CANCER,
The Tao - GEMINI,
The Old testament - TAURUS,
The New testament - ARIES,
The Koran - PISCES,
The Torah - AQUARIUS
As these books are about direction, it is important that you know where you are. We are currently approaching the Age of Aquarius, which coincides with the principle of cause and effect. In this Age, our primary focus should be what has caused the effects that we see around us. So determined are these books to direct us, that the Torah is simply the 5 Books of Moses. This indicates that to identify the cause and effects, we should focus our attention on the old testament, specifically the 5 books of Moses.
When you look at the bible you will see firstly that each book represents a cosmic principle and also a star sign. .
Genesis, which corresponds to MIND,
Exodus, which relates to CORRESPONDENCE,
Leviticus, which corresponds to VIBRATION,
Numbers, which corresponds to RHYTHM,
Deuteronomy, which corresponds to POLARITY,
Joshua, which corresponds to CAUSE AND EFFECT.
Judges, which corresponds to GENDER (the pattern then starts again)
As you enter each book you will see that the pattern also exists within the book..
The creation story, which corresponds to MIND,
Adam and Eve, which relates to CORRESPONDENCE,
Noah, which corresponds to VIBRATION,
Abraham, which corresponds to RHYTHM,
Isaac, which corresponds to POLARITY,
Jacob, which corresponds to CAUSE AND EFFECT.
Joseph, which corresponds to GENDER
I bring you back to the holographic principle and the fractal nature of the universe. As highlighted previously this pattern can also be seen within each story. Secondly, when looking at the bible you will see the star signs; the bible begins with the creation story which states, and god said ‘Let there be light’. The highest point of the Sun is the Tropic of Cancer. The bible ends with the story of Jesus who is a fisher of men, representing Pisces. The bible was written before the Age of Aquarius and as its purpose is to direct you, only revelations make reference to the coming Age.
As with the cosmic principles the star signs can be seen in each book and again in each story.
Genesis, which corresponds to Cancer,
Exodus, which corresponds to Gemini,
Leviticus, which corresponds to Taurus,
Numbers, which corresponds to Aries,
Deuteronomy, which corresponds to Pisces, (the pattern then repe
