I’m very non-committal when it comes to these kind of topics, i don’t have much of an interest in social sciences or the humanities, much less politics. I am for freedom and equality, and i think natural law covers all that. As long as people leave me alone and don’t infringe upon my rights, or the inalienable rights of another, then i don’t care what they do. If they want to be slaves to a corporate master (nanny state) then they can do that, just leave me out of it. I want no part in a corporate society, all that concerns me is the law of the land and that it is being upheld. I consider myself an inhabitant of the community, not a member of the society.

None the less, people still ask me what my political views are. Well i don’t really like labels, so i’ll just be true to myself and let everybody else slap a label on me, since that is what they seem to like to do anyway and regardless of my input. So here is a summary of my feelings on some issues. I am ok with terms like classical liberal, libertarian, conservative, centrist, center-left-, center-right, anarchist, and anarcho-capitalist. I’m a bit of them all, and don’t appreciate being put into a box. But if i was hard-pressed to provide an answer, i’d most likely just say centrist to emphasize my typical position of neutrality.

What i don’t like is extremism on either side of the spectrum. What i have a problem with is far-right neo-nazi white nationalist skinheads pushing for ethno-states, and/or authoritarian socialist/communist/marxist ideals and the rise of radical leftism and the SJW culture. They’re both extremes, and i’m a man who appreciates balance.

See: Balance Is The Key! – The Mental Schism

So please don’t ask me for my political affiliation, instead ask me for my opinions about a specific political topic. (Eg, gun control, abortion, monetary system, etc.) I generally take things on a case by case basis and i do not ascribe to any predetermined set of political ideals outlined by a label.

I don’t vote because i don’t have a government, and i don’t believe i have the privilege of deciding how a corporation is run when i’m not an employee of that corporation or member of that society. I have as much right to have a say in who is the President of America or Prime Minister of Britain as i do for who is the President of Microsoft.

The only type of government that can lawfully exist is a representative one, and i personally do not need any representatives, i can be present and speak for myself. I don’t need limited liability, i am wholly responsible for all my words and actions.

I can’t have white male privilege because i don’t have any privileges, i have rights. They are the same rights that everybody else has, so don’t get upset because i exercise them when i have the opportunity. Newsflash, people, EVERYONE is oppressed, and last time i checked, oppression was not a competition. Rights can not be given nor taken away, they are inherent. A right is a right by virtue of it not being a wrong. It’s really that’s straight forward. Of course, your rights can be infringed upon and many people around the world are victims of that, everybody is a victim of something.

If you’re confused by any of this, i suggest reading my other articles regarding law to gather some context.

See: You Are Dead & Lost At Sea

Before you start branding me as a racist bigot or accusing this list of people of being all-right gurus, please note that a vast number of these individuals are actually one of more of the following; Liberal, Left-wing, Jewish, Female, Black, Feminist, Homosexual etc. (and identify as such). The difference being, they aren’t raging emotional wrecks, devoid of facts, evidence and the ability to productively debate free from logical fallacies. They aren’t illogical PC snowflake radicals who can’t handle reality and who are pushing for censorship and unlawful legislation against free speech and other human rights, and generally hampering the ability of anybody having a productive dialogue about controversial issues, on the grounds that somebody may be “offended”.

Kudos to these brave souls who speak their mind and stand up for the objective truth despite the backlash, and for being beacons of logic and reason in a world of ever growing insanity where immature, emotionally imbalanced individuals think they have the moral high ground when they do not, and tragically and ironically end up becoming exactly what it is they claim to be fighting against; absolute fascists.

If this post offends you, good, it ought to offend you. Reality offends, that’s typically a symptom of living in the real world, the truth is not always what we want to hear, hence the expression “Truth hurts”. If you can handle that offense like a rational adult and want to have a civil discussion and reasonable dialogue about these topics, then i more than welcome that. By all means, seek clarification and context and ask me a good question.

If you can’t handle the offense and feel yourself becoming irate and think i am the scum of the earth and all you want to do is belittle, harass and berate me for being a [insert unfair accusatory cliché term here] and virtue signal like a deranged self-righteous SJW, then please don’t bother saying anything at all and just block me and get on with your day. Why waste your breath? That’s the cool thing about freedom of choice, if you don’t like what you hear you can change the channel. But you will not censor my opinion merely because it’s not the same as your own. Grow up, and start ACTUALLY respecting the rights, freedoms and responsibilities you “claim” to be activists for.

sjw anatomy

One of the common arguments i hear is “Derp, how can you have a problem with SJWs? Tell me what is wrong with social justice?”

Nothing is wrong with social justice, justice is justice, social or otherwise, and it’s a core moral tenet that everybody in the world should always strive for. The problem is the far left and SJWs are not actually fighting for justice in any sense, they are fighting for surrealist delusions, safe spaces, censorship, and the eradication of fundamental human rights, all in the name of “equality”, but when it’s actually an extreme bias at the expense of many rights and freedoms. It actually creates more victims, and it’s an incredibly counter-productive movement rooted in very dangerous and harmful ideologues.

Everybody is born free and equal under the common law of the land anyway, we all have the same inalienable human rights, but what they fail to realize is equal rights means equal responsibilities. To live in the real world requires thick skin, and if you can’t accept the facts of the reality in which you live and you chose to isolate yourself into a safe, comfort zone bubble of delusion where you identify as an Apache attack helicopter or what have you, then you go right ahead and do that, but then DON’T seek impose that delusion upon everybody else or penalize those who don’t conform to it, because that is called FASCISM.

Simple shit. It really is. Study the law, the actual law which is natural law and common law. Know what a right actually is, know your rights and exercise them, and teach what you consider to be oppressed minorities to do the same. Everybody wins, as long as you respect that the groups you consider not to be oppressed also have those same rights and you need to respect those too. We already have equality as far as i’m concerned, and if people started actually behaving like it instead of trying to tip the scales into their favour all the time, things might not be so constantly out of whack.

By all means, seek out injustice in the world and defend those people who are actually oppressed and having their human rights infringed upon, but trying to regulate and control what people say or think is not the answer to that, you can’t fight for the rights of one group of people by sacrificing the rights of another group, or you’re not for human rights at all. You can’t have it both ways.

I’m too disinterested in politics to care that much about a person’s political affiliation, what i’m more concerned at looking at is their level of intellectualism and if they can adequately defend their positions with maturity, humility, compassion and reason.

The vast majority of the people in my list stand against extremist leftism and argue against the insane PC totalitarianism which is born from it, specifically the highly leftist bias of the leftist hijacked mainstream media and universities that pander to and perpetuate it. The fact that many of those people themselves identify as left leaning on the political spectrum speak volumes to that, in my opinion.

sjw what they do

I Love classical liberals, they are just becoming a dying breed these days. I feel sorry for them because just like how a rational and compassionate person who happens to hold conservative values is being wrongly labeled (by the left) as alt-right or far-right, the same can be said for classical liberals who are just as rational and compassionate but are also being labeled as fascists or bigots (by their own leftists and liberals) simply because they do not conform to the extremist values of the far left.

Essentially it’s the fact that radical leftism is on the rise and being left unchallenged, that pretty much anybody who is not far-left is being labeled as alt-right. They are basically so far left on the spectrum that everybody else compared to them ‘would’ be to the right, because there’s no place else for them to be!

Honestly, i am so disinterested in the polarized political paradigm and consider it mostly a false dichotomy, but if i have to be dragged into this debate and forced to take a position, then i take a position of equality and am merely defending the underdog whom i see as being wrongfully accused and the victim of a very cunning system of oppression, quite ironically. The oppression of speech, which is secretly the oppression of thought.

Leftists today are the biggest hypocrites, and i think the reason for that is because despite meaning well (and i truly believe they do) they have become overwhelmed by their anger and emotions and have abandoned their ability to think logically and therefore act reasonably and with respect to others, and as a result of that we have only worsened the problem of oppression and waning freedom.

They don’t want to be equal, they want to get even, and there is a big difference. I’m sorry lefties, but two wrongs do not make a right.

Here are the results of a generation of leftist indoctrination, supported by (mostly indirectly) and left unchallenged by government, media, and the education system. Enter, ANTIFA:

So go ahead, call me a racist, nazi, mysogynist, Xphobe etc. You’d only be proving my point further, empowering my points of view. I am fueled by liberal tears. Every time you lefties disrespectfully throw around these baseless accusations to insult everyone who doesn’t conform to your extremist counter-productive “social justice” principles, you are actually just creating more opposition and feeding the trolls. Every time you virtue signal, intelligent people see right through it, and we cringe, and get a good laugh at your expense.

Grow up and stop taking the bait. Your propositions are preposterous, so tone down the trigger rage and try having a civil and rational discussion with those who have political views contrary to your own, and let’s work together to actually find viable solutions, not final solutions.

Yours sincerely, a straight white male Christian centrist.

You Are Dead & Lost At Sea

Maritime admiralty law is also known as the law of the high seas, or law of water. It is contrary to the law of the land or common law. The earth has only land and water, consequently those are the two major types of law.

Think of an aspect of your life that dictates the limits of your freedom. Government and law enforcement, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, taxes, building permits, drivers licenses, and more. There are hundreds if not thousands of stipulations, regulations, and boundaries on our freedom. And out of the ones that were just mentioned how many have you researched to find out whether they apply to you or not?

maritime-words

Many maritime words are commonly used today in everyday conversation. Maritime words relate to nautical, sea/ocean, shipping, and navigation. Maritime law regulates business, banking and commerce. It is the law of money. The law which governs vessels / ships (known for carrying commercial produce/money). Whereas the common law comes from the customs of those who live on the land, it is derived from common sense and natural law. The powers that be who control the governments and courts have attempted to subvert our natural rights and override the common law jurisdiction by treating us all as corporations, which are subject to maritime admiralty law, instead of natural/sovereign human beings with inalienable rights under the common law of the land.

Common law or the law of the land, is what is lawful; Statue Law or Maritime Law, the law of the ocean; is what we call legal. The Law of the Sea/Ocean is banking law. It is international by nature. Legal and lawful are antonyms. Statute law is not actually ‘law’ is the truest sense, it is corporate policy given the ‘force of law’, which is different from actual law. In law, a statute is defined as a legislated rule of a society, given the force of law (by the consent of the governed parties). Acts and statutes are corporate policies of the state, or whatever legal/corporate framework/society has issued them, but typically this refers to government.

For a statute to be applicable, the subject must be a member of that specific society for which the statute was created, and must have given their consent to be a member of that society. Citizenship and birth registration ‘is’ that consent. Without this prerequisite, there can be no state authority or legal jurisdiction over an individual.

A common misconception among people is that any rule or regulation that governs them falls under one category, “Law”. But there are many other forms of law that people abide by without realizing that they simply do not apply to them.

Maritime admiralty law was never meant to be applied to land dwellers, the people and tribes of the land have a natural right to dictate their own customs within the common law. Common law in it simplicity, covers almost every possible eventuality. Harm, theft and fraud. Those are essentially the big 3 crimes that break the law. It’s the ONLY way to break the law. Anything else would just be a breach of policy. Those are not true crimes.

Under the common law a sovereign human being is allowed to do whatever they please, so long as they do not infringe upon the life, rights, or liberty of another. This is what it means to act lawfully.

A simple perversion of language has it made it possible to convince people around the world that these maritime laws apply to them. One of the predominate beliefs in modern culture is that licenses, permits, registrations, and other forms of documentation are required to operate motor vehicles, use public roads build structures and establishments and engage in free-enterprise and much more. Sadly, these beliefs are based on little to no investigation whatsoever and are false.

It is a type of subtle and passive aggressive fascism which i like to call; Tyranny By The Books & Slavery By Consent. More on this later, in other articles.

Let’s look at the nautical connections to business and finance.

Ships are always referred to as female, because they carry a product, like a woman who gives birth is seen by the state as creating a product (human resources).

When a ship parks into a harbour, this is known as berthing, the ship berths into it’s dock. Then it receives a certificate of manifest, because it has manifest on the land. When a mother’s water breaks, she births a child, which comes out through the birth ‘canal’ (A canal is a waterway channel) and manifests into the world, or onto the land. Then it receives a birth certificate, which must be signed by the doctor (DOCK-tor). The child is then given citizen-SHIP and become chattel (cattle) property of the state, which can be traded on the stock market. (More on that in later articles)

Think of why it is supposedly required to have a certificate of life birth in the first place.
The Barran’s dictionary of Banking Terms defines a certificate as a paper establishing an ownership claim. So right there, we notice that everyone with a birth certificate is define as being owned. Owned by Whom?

People are used as collateral with other nations because the U.S is bankrupt. The United States declared bankruptcy on March 9th of 1933, at this point, the U.S began taking out loans from a private non government affiliated corporation called “The Federal Reserve”. A private banking cartel which is neither federal nor has reserves. With no money to pay back the loans, The United States began using the citizens as collateral. After all, a human being has value, they have the potential work, to consume, to be taxed etc. So why not assign a monetary value to them?

All birth and married certificates are literally warehouse receipts. Just look at the similarity of warehouse receipts and birth certificates. Both document the date of issue, a serial number, registration number or receipt number, a description of the product, and an authorized informant to notify the appropriate government agency.

Money is water. When you subtract the expenses from an income you have what’s called the cash ‘flow’. When you turn an asset into cash it’s called liquidation, you liquidate an asset.

money-is-water_1

What do you find on either side of a river? Banks. Just like how river banks control the flow of the water current into the sea. Banks control the cash-flow of the currency. (current-sea). When the river banks rupture they can no longer contain the flow of the current to the sea, similarly when your own cash-flow goes into negative and you no longer have any currency you are considered bank-rupt.

When your pay your due, you pay your ‘dew’ (Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening due to condensation). To catch the wind and move a boat or ship you put up the sail, when you place something you own on the market you put it up for sale.

MER; from Old French “mer”, from Latin “mare”, from Proto-Italic “mari”, meaning sea (large body of water). Therefore the prefix “mer” refers to water as well, such as mer-maid, a maiden of the water, a mythical being (also synonymous with sirens) which was said to lure weary sailors with their songs and then drag them to their deaths in the ocean. These songs or chants can be considered mer-chants. Not unlike how a mer-chant banker will lure you into their admiralty jurisdiction and drain you of your wealth and steal your life away. Also note the mer in comMERce.

According to Black’s Law Dictionary a Hospital is considered a bank. Like a ship, a woman also delivers a product when she goes into labor in the hospital delivery room. She is a vessel or a ship who gives birth to a child. When products are delivered by a ship, they need a Certificate of Manifest (AKA Certificate of Berth).

When a child is delivered, he or she is granted a birth Certificate and is given citizen-ship. Men impregnate women with semen (sea-men). Women are a vessel or a ship. Men and women mar-ry. People will say “Is she of good stock” or “is she bad company?”

Maybe it’s none of our ‘business‘? You need a licence to mar-ry because mar-riage is a business exchange. A spouse is a mar-riage partner (partner-ship). Typical legal marriage is actually a 3-way contract between husband, wife, and the state.  Arguably four-way, if you include The Vatican.

Your body is legally considered a corporation, corporations plural is sometimes referred to as Corps. – That’s why when your body dies, you are a corpse. Sometimes if a person is a bad influence we say “Don’t hang out with them, they are bad company” or if someone is poking their nose into your private life you might say “That is not your business, that’s my business”. Because your body is a corporate business. Everything we do is considered business, it’s always been about money.

We also have the expression, to come from a good stock. Which means to come from a good family or background, especially if that family/background is wealthy. A stock is also what we call a share in a company, corporation or business, like the stock market. Incidentally, it’s also the name for a physical bondage device, like in the old days if you committed a lesser crime, you might be locked into the stocks (short for stockade), which bound your hands and head.

stockade

We see the same motif again with the word, Bond. A bond is a financial instrument and fixed income instrument that represents a loan made by an investor to a borrower (typically corporate or governmental). Bonds are used by companies, municipalities, states, and sovereign governments to finance projects and operations. Owners of bonds are debtholders, or creditors, of the issuer. A bond is also a instrument of bond-age, something which binds you, like a rope tie, chains or a stockade. So perhaps it is some sick satanic perversion behind why we call the emotional/spiritual ties (again, tie, another bondage word) with the people we care about, bonds.

I suppose to the satanic elite who control and dictate this world, Love and emotional connections are considered things which make you weak and hold you back, dead weights, they would most likely consider them like a ball and chain. Incidentally, a dead weight (AKA dead load) is what we call the maximum cargo carry weight of a ship. And, in economics, a dead weight means losses incurred because of the inefficient allocation of resources, especially through taxation or restriction. E.g, a dead-weight burden / a debt not covered by assets.

Moreover, you can see the reference of the term compan-y in the word compan-ion. No surprise then that a companionway is a raised and windowed hatchway in a ship’s deck, with a ladder leading below and the hooded entrance-hatch to the main cabins.

Also in line with this pattern is the term ‘mate’, which you may call some of these people you have bonds with. Mate is a nautical terms which refers to your crew, or crew-mates.

In the financial world bonds can be “floated”, another maritime term, floating loans etc. – of course things atop of water are considered to be floating, so that one is obvious. If you don’t pay your debts your account might become ‘frozen’, like water becoming ice. Maybe you got these loans from a loan ‘shark‘, and created a financial document upon which you placed a seal. A seal is an embossed emblem, figure, symbol, word, letter, etc., used as attestation or evidence of authenticity, but it is also an amphibious mammal synonymous with the ocean.

When you enter a court you have the fence and a gate. The gate is the flood gate. So when you’re sitting outside, you’re on the land. These defacto courts are treated as a vessel, stepping onto a court is considered the same as stepping onto a ship. When a land dweller steps onto a ship, they are completely under the control and authority of the captain of that ship, the captain makes the rules because it is his ship. He can make you take shoes off, or scrubs the decks, and you have no right to refuse, if you don’t like the rules you can simply get off the ship and back onto the land and the law of land where your common law rights are intact, and you’re longer under the jurisdiction of the captain and his ship. Captain comes from capital, where capital refers to money, specifically investment funds. A large warship is also called a capital ship.

Same with the courts, once you step onto their court, onto their metaphorical ship, you’re now in maritime admiralty jurisdiction, or at least that is the default assumption unless you claim otherwise. This always puts you at a disadvantage right away. They don’t have jurisdiction on the people sitting outside of the court because it’s outside the gate, but once you step inside, you have gone through the flood gate and into the canal, now you’re in “hot water” and subject to maritime admiralty jurisdiction.

On top of the gate is a piece of wood known as the bar, as you’re not licensed to pass the bar. In law, “The Bar” is the legal profession as an institution. The term is a metonym for the line that separates the parts of a courtroom reserved for spectators and those reserved for participants in a trial such as lawyers. If you open the flood and walk pass the bar, you of your own volition have left the law of the land and waivered those rights by willingly entering maritime admiralty jurisdiction.

In nautical terminology, a Bar is any large mass of sand or earth formed and raised above the water surface by the surge of the sea. Bars are mostly found at the entrances of great rivers or havens, and often render navigation extremely dangerous, but confer tranquility in the inshore waters by acting as a barrier against strong waves.

In a courtroom setting, the dock is an enclosed space where the defendant stands or sits in a court of law. In nautical terms a dock is a structure extending alongshore or out from the shore into a body of water, to which boats may be moored.

When you go to court; your case is placed in a Docket. A Docket is an abridged entry of a judgment or proceeding in an action, or register of such entries; a book of original, kept by clerks of courts, containing a formal list of the names of parties, and minutes of the proceedings, in each case in court. Nautical terminology defines a docket as to present a rate proposal to a conference meeting for adoption as a conference group rate.

If someone owes you money for a service, you might give them a bill. A bill is also the extremity of the arm of an anchor.

In business, a cartel is group of independent market participants who collude with each other in order to improve their profits and dominate the market. E.G, banking cartels.

In nautical terminology a cartel is a ship employed on humanitarian voyages, in particular to carry communications or prisoners between belligerents during wartime. A cartel flies distinctive flags, including a flag of truce, traditionally is unarmed except for a lone signaling gun, and under international law is not subject to seizure or capture during her outbound and return voyages as long as she engages in no warlike acts.

When something is spotted in front of a ship’s path they say it is “dead” ahead. If a vessel is immobilized but not anchored it is called dead in the water. A dead wake is the term used to denote the trail of a fading disturbance in the water. A wake is also the ceremony we hold for the dead. A snag in the water is called a deadhead. A strong shutter fitted over a porthole or other opening on a ship that can be closed in bad weather is called a deadlight. A deadeye is wooden block with three holes (but no pulleys) spliced to a shroud. It adjusts the tension in the standing rigging of large sailing vessels, by lacing through the holes with a lanyard to the deck.

Dead reckoning is a method of navigation that estimates a ship’s position from the distance run measured by the log and the course steered. A deadrise is the design angle of the hull at the keel relative to horizontal when viewing the cross-section, or the distance of rise from the keel to a defined point on the hull. In a traditional wooden hull, blocks of timber on the top of the keel that form the shape of the hull where its section is too narrow for the method of construction employed elsewhere are called deadwood. In a keel boat (kill boat?), the act of broaching to windward, putting the spinnaker pole into the water and causing a crash-gybe of the boom and mainsail, which sweep across the deck and plunge down into the water, is called a death roll.

In law, a “drop dead date” is a provision in a contract or a court order which sets the last date an event must take place (such as payment) or otherwise certain consequences will automatically follow, such as cancelling the contract, taking property or entering a judgment.

Flank refers to the maximum speed of a ship, but it’s also a militaristic term which refers to the side (vulnerable position) of a large group of people, like an army or football team. A leader of an army would often give his men a pep talk, an inspirational rant intended to encourage his men and instill zeal or fervor. You could call it a war rant. In law they can issue war-rants (eg, for arrest). In business a product is given a war-ranty.

Time and time again, we see through language that money, law/legality, commerce, shipping, banking, slavery, bondage, death, war, sailing and water are all connected. But did you also know they all have their roots in black magick and occultism?

Notice how the magistrates of courts (not all the time, but often) would all be dressed in black robes, the same type of garbs worn by sorcerers and satanists during their rites and rituals. They wear them because they are in mourning for justice, and mourning for the dead (i.e, you).

When you go overboard a ship and you’re trapped in the water and someone throws you a rope to rescue you, they are bailing you out. To bail you out of the water is the same as when someone bails you out of prison. This is known as paying bail or paying “Bael” (an alternative spelling of Ba’al) the Canaanite deity, whom you are paying tribute to in return for freedom. Bael is first and chief among the demons in the Solomonic medieval grimoire of Ars Goetia.

Once you pass the flood gates and pass the bar into a court, you’re now technically considered dead / lost-at-sea. (Or lost / dead-at-sea). You went into deep water and you drowned. Or at least, this is the assumption when they interact with your ‘person’, your legal name, your corporate strawman. Essentially, this is the default assumption of all citizens, whether you’re in a court or not, but passing the flood gates onto their court is certainly confirmation of this. To the architects of control, you are dead, you have no rights.

This is similar to but slightly different to when a child is delivered through the mother’s birth canal, in this case they are lost-at-sea but then rescued by the doctor as maritime salvage. And we all know the rules for salvage; finders keepers. You salvage something from the waters, it now belongs to you. The doctor salvages your child from the waters and registers it with the government, signing it away – in partner-ship and with consent of the parents too, of course.

A dead man is unable to speak, and if you’re lost/dead at sea then you can never be present. This is why an attorney has to speak for you, as your re-present-atative. This is why you are “summonsed” to court, by the men in black robes. You are a dead person being summoned by the rites (rights) of magick by the magickians in black robes. The magi-strates are “Magii” or magickians summoning dead names into their court, where they play games with you. The bailiffs are Bael-iffs. Their court, their ship, their rules, their jurisdiction, and now you must obey their commands, like how a summoned spirit must obey the commands of the magickian/summoner. It’s essentially mock necromancy and conjuration.

Your corporate/legal name, (AKA your strawman) is expressed in all capital letters and is known as a nom de guerre,  meaning a war name, AKA dead name. It’s the way a name is expressed for a dead person, the way names are written on grave stones. Corporations are not living beings. Your name is always written this way on any formal or legal documentation, such as letters from the state or courts, anything to do with finances like your credit/debit card etc. MR. JOHN SMITH, for example, as opposed to how a friend may address you on the land, as simply John, or John of the Smith family. There is a huge difference.

You are not MR. JOHN SMITH, this is a corporate entity (fictional, not living) attached to you (the sovereign living being), created when you were registered at birth. It exists in a 2D world, on paper only, not in 3D with flesh and blood and a spirit created and blessed by The Creator (God) and endowed with natural rights.

In roman times, this way of expressing a name was known as capitus diminutio maxima, meaning maximum loss of status, it was how the names of slaves were written to show they were property and not considered technically living beings with the same rights as others.

When i spoke earlier about statutes only being applicable to consensual members of that society, well your strawman and corporate name is very much like your membership card, it is proof and evidence of your membership to that society, and thus implies that you are bound by the statutes of that society. Of course this has a literal and physical counterpart by way of a state issued ID card or passport. This is why police, ones who are following legal due process at least, will always ask for your ID, because without it they have no evidence of a ‘person’ and can not get jurisdiction over you. They have other ways of getting your consent through tricky language though.


Even the English language itself has the same occult roots.

We languish in our languid language. We write (cast rites) and spell words (cast spells). Words are as deadly as swords if misunderstood. We write in cursive (spelling curses). When we profane we are speaking “curse words”. We write sentences, and receive prison sentences. We use terms, and serve prison terms.

Syllables come from Sybils, also called Sibylla, a prophetess in Greek legend and literature. Tradition represented her as a woman of prodigious old age uttering predictions in ecstatic frenzy, but she was always a figure of the mythical past, and her prophecies, in Greek hexameters, were handed down in writing.

The term synonymous with magic that everyone will have heard at least once, “Abracadabra” (sometimes punned as abra-cadaver, whereas a cadaver is a corpse) literally means to create/manifest as you speak, or of what you speak.

Doctor Lenon Orwell stated in his work on DNA: “one third of the sensory-motor-cortex of the brain is devoted to the tongue, oral cavity, the lips, and speech.” It is what separates us from the animals, it is a divine blessing and uniquely human characteristic.

In other words, oral frequency emissions spoken, or sung, exert powerful control over life, vibrating genes that influence total well-being and even evolution of the species. A degradation of language in this case is shown to affect biology. If something as basic and important as language can be degraded and devalued to such a degree, yet never questioned, what else might we be missing?

Language carries cymatic frequencies and new studies are starting to show the effect they have, not just on matter itself but biology also. This concept itself embodies the notion of “magic words” in witchcraft and sorcery.

Occultists understand the power of language and ‘word magic’. Language is a powerful tool, it can be used to create or destroy, to liberate or enslave, to enlighten or deceive.

Why are we worked to bone, is it that our mundane weekdays keep us in a perpetually weak daze, so that we may never figure out what is going on? We become so weakened we can barely make it to the weekend. So each day we routinely (mundanely) awake in the morning… or is it the Monday mourning ritual at a wake, for the dead?

These homophones are exactly that, homo phones from the phony Phoenician phonetics of phonics. Not coincidences but rather the true esoteric meanings of the words hidden in their sounds and etymological roots. These roots commonly traced back to the trade routes of Phoenician commerce.

There are at least 950 words in the English language that end with the suffix “ship”. Court-ship, friend-ship, Wor-ship (war-ship), hard-ship, devil-ship, judge-ship, knave-ship, owner-ship, citizen-ship, voter-ship, censor-ship, client-ship, fellow-ship, father-ship, mother-ship, medium-ship, member-ship, author-ship, dealer-ship, lord-ship, ruler-ship, scholar-ship, apprentice-ship, the list goes on… i’m sure you can think of many others.

Not to mention all the different kinds of literal ship (air-ship, gun-ship, rocket-ship etc.) – I infer that our language is showing us just how many aspects of our lives are esoterically defined as ships and vessels, to be governed by maritime policy.

Incidentally, even the concept of heliocentrism and modern cosmology (which you ought to know, if you’ve spent any time on my blog before, is a complete fabrication, fiction and hoax) attempts to turn the world, the earth itself into a ship, a space-ship floating through the sea of space. In this sense they could argue the entire earth is a vessel with which they can govern under maritime jurisdiction.

The origins of these systems go way back to Phoenicia, with the ancient Canaanites. These people invented banking and UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) and became exceedingly wealthy by these deceptive practices. They were also heretical pagans who worshiped deities such as Ba’al, Astarte, Ishtar, Moloch etc. Gods which demanded the sacrifice of children. Children were thrown into fires, or into the hands of a large bronze statute of Moloch, where his hands would be over the top of a fire and would heat up and burn the child alive.

moloch 1moloch 2

Interestingly that these are the same or similar religious practices inherited and continued today by the world power elite, and banking dynasties, at places like Bohemian grove for example. Not a lot has changed, sadly. It makes sense these people would continue the traditions of the Canaanites, seeing as they owe so much of their wealth and power to the banking and legal systems they created.

The entire legal system is essentially the modern day Priests of Ba’al (Bael). Did you know a young attorney in training is refereed to as a devil, who is practicing deviling? Deviling is the period of training, pupillage or junior work undertaken by a person wishing to become an advocate in one of the legal systems of the United Kingdom or Ireland.

The synonymous nature between law/legality and The Devil or demonic practices are apparent to the point of being cultural clichés. The Devil is a character well known for being depicted as a shrewd businessman or lawyer, one who always screws you in a contract with fine print or deceptive language, or loopholes.

In occultism, specifically Satanism, deals with the devil and pacts with demons are a very real practice, and for all intents and purposes they are considered spiritual contracts. The_Devils_Contract

No joke, it’s pretty much right in your face. For those with ears let them hear and for those who have eyes let them see all this lunacy, or lunar-sea. As a side note, it’s interesting how the moon (an obsessively profound occult object and symbol) has long been thought to have an effect on the mental states of humans and animals. People tend to be more emotionally charged on a full moon. The folklore surrounding werewolves involve the full moon. The moon is said to effect the tides of the seas, as well as a woman’s monthly (moon-thly) biological prerogative. Is it no coincidence then that in astronomy, the moon has lunar seas, such as the sea of tranquility for example?

In nautical terminology you have the “Devil Seam”. The devil was possibly a slang term for the garboard seam, hence “between the devil and the deep blue sea” being an allusion to keel hauling, but a more popular version seems to be the seam between the waterway and the stanchions, which would be difficult to get at, requiring a cranked caulking iron, and a restricted swing of the caulking mallet.

Also devil to pay, and no pitch hot.

“Paying” the devil is sealing the devil seam. It is a difficult and unpleasant job (with no resources) because of the shape of the seam (up against the stanchions) or if the devil refers to the garboard seam, it must be done with the ship slipped or careened.

In regards to language, a draft is a preliminary piece of writing, but in financial terms it’s a written order to pay a specified sum. In nautical terms it’s also the depth of a ship’s keel below the waterline. And, not to mention the act of mandatory recruitment into the military, which creates dead persons (both metaphorically/esoterically and literally). 

With etymology, just because two words sound similar or are spelled similarly, does not necessarily mean they share a linguistic root, historically speaking, at least with academic exoteric etymology. Conversely when you analyze the esoteric etymology, this is almost always the case and there is little to no coincidence.


Now, just for some supplementary context, a short entry about the legal deception.

As i’ve previously said, your body is considered a corporation, but it wasn’t originally, not when you were born. All people are born free and equal with inalienable human rights as a sovereign being, flesh and blood, alive and blessed with consciousness. This is completely contrary to how the state and courts define and perceive you as and when the interact with you.

I highly recommend picking up a legal dictionary and learning some legalese, as this will shine so much light on the topics discussed in this article. It serves as the perfect example of ‘word magic’ and how the tool of language can be used to bind and deceive others. Legalese is intentionally deceptive. Any society (in this case, the legal society) has the right to create their own terms and language for use within their societal framework. So, cunningly, they have created their own lexicon of terms which mimic standard English, but have completely different definitions. This means when you use certain words in a court, they don’t mean what you think they mean.

It is so blatantly malicious. Imagine being called to court for some infraction, and all the judges and lawyers are speaking to you in Chinese, and you live in a western society and don’t speak Chinese, you live in a place where 99% of people speak modern English. All you can gather is that they are very angry and trying to fine you and arrest you or punish you in some way. How would you defend yourself? Let’s assume you know these people speak perfect English, but for some reason they’re all now speaking Chinese, a foreign language in their legal proceedings. You’d feel isolated and vulnerable, right? You’d probably say that it wasn’t fair, reasonable or just to try, judge or penalize someone without communicating to them in a language they understood.

Well that is what they are technically doing, speaking  a foreign language to isolate you and put you at a disadvantage, however it’s so much more deceptive than that because they modeled their own language on standard English, so it sounds like a language your familiar with, but it’s actually not. This intentionally leads you to believe you’re communicating with them when you’re not, they are communicating amongst themselves, and you’re just speaking babble and gobbeldy-gook, another reason why a lawyer is there to speak for you, like an interpreter.

In law a “Summons” is defined as an invitation, and the word “Must” is connotatively defined to be synonymous with the word “May”. So when you receive a summons you see a scary piece paper and official looking document which summons you and demands you MUST attend court. Is this really the case? Perhaps in plain English it might be, but in legalese it’s more akin to an invitation to their place of business where you ‘may’ attend. You can always respectfully decline their invitation.

When a judge gives you an order and says “Do you understand?” – you may disagree with the order, but you say “Yes” in response, to acknowledge that you comprehend what you have been told, but what you’ve actually just said is you “stand under”, as in stand under their authority. This is a very common tactic in court they use to get your consent and apply their jurisdiction over you.

In many cases, the term “include” is used contrary to it’s standard English definition, and can actually be restrictive, meaning to exclude. So where a statute may say something like “Use of narcotics such as cocaine or heroin are prohibited. This includes tobacco and alcohol.” What it might actually be saying is cocaine and heroin are against policy, but tobacco and alcohol are excluded from this rule.

In court, they may also refer to you as a person. You think a person is a human being, but on the contrary, when they say the word person, in legalese a person is defined as a corporation. I highly recommend getting a few law dictionaries and learning some of these words, you will find countless examples of standard English words where they have changed the definitions and meanings to intentionally deceive and/or assert control/jurisdiction over a person who assumes they are communicating in standard English.

Legalese is nothing but a linguistic tool to assert control over others. Why else would they make it so complex and complicated that you have to study it for 7+ years to practice law? It’s a deterrent to the layman. It’s elitism. Keeping power and control within small selected groups.

In nautical terms a Driver is the large sail flown from the mizzen gaff. In legalese a driver is a person (corporation) who is engaging in commerce on public roads. In business when someone haggles well we say they “drive” a hard bargain. Again, drawing connections between money, law and water.

It’s interesting to note that a sovereign being moving between two points in their own private conveyance is not a driver, they are not driving in a vehicle with passengers, they are travelling in a private conveyance with guests. Driving is about money, which is why you must get a license to drive. If you are not making money on public roads or routes then you are not driving, you are travelling, and you don’t need a license to travel.

Remember that anything the state issues a license for must be a fundamentally lawful activity first and foremost anyway, otherwise they’d be licensing unlawful activities. (James Bond jokes aside, you can’t get a license to kill, for example)

In legalese, to ‘apply’ means to beg. The implications of this word are a beggar knows exactly what they are begging for, they are begging entirely voluntarily (as nobody can be bound to beg) and they must be accepting the power/authority of whomever they are begging to.

Any time you have applied for a license or permit, you have begged for permission. A sovereign being under the common law has every right to go and catch a fish, but a citizen/slave is prohibited by policy to do that in some in countries, and they would be told to apply for a fishing license.

Catching a fish harms no human and does not infringe upon the rights or anyone else, it is a fundamentally lawful action. My question is then, why would any sane, sovereign and free individual beg the corporate nanny state for permission to engage in a fundamentally lawful activity? That would be a pathetic, infantile, immature thing to do, completely in alignment with a slave mentality.

To submit means to bend to the authority/will of another. To register means to sign away ownership of something. Therefore NEVER under any circumstances should a free and sovereign individual ever “submit an application for registration” or they are essentially acknowledging an authority over them and begging that authority to take ownership of their lawful property. (More on this in later articles)

These connections between law, commerce and water are truly endless, as are the example of deceptive legalese and i’m sure there are many i have not mentioned, waiting to be found. That’s your opportunity to do due diligence. If you find something i missed, please leave it in the comments below.

I would like to touch more on the deception of the legal system and legalese, but this topic is too big for a single humble blog post. I think i’ve planted enough seeds to inspire intrigue, it’s up to you if you want to continue down this rabbit hole. I highly recommend it, because it is immensely empowering, and quite honestly a fundamental facet of freedom that many in the truther community have overlooked. It really doesn’t matter how much you have researched conspiracies, if you don’t fundamentally and spiritually embody the concept of self-sovereignty. To do this, you must know your rights in order to defend them and lead by example by exercising them and speaking the truth.

“The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds.” —Revelation 20:13

“Your dead will live; Their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, For your dew is as the dew of the dawn, And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.” —Isaiah 26:19

And thus the bible speaks that the dead shall walk the earth. Perhaps they already are, without even knowing it?

George Orwell VS Aldous Huxley

orwell v huxley

“What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egotism.

Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumble puppy.

As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists, who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny, “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.”

In 1984, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that our desire will ruin us.

This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.” ― Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

It’s an issue of overt vs covert tyranny.

Essentially, the idea is there will be no revolution because the people will have been conditioned to actively Love their captivity, to the point where they no longer consider it captivity, but a blessing. It’s like a whole other level of Stockholm syndrome. We will happily enslave ourselves.

Patterns In Nature – A Case For Intelligent Design

‘Nature geometrizes universally in all her manifestations.’ – H.P. Blavatsky

Humans have always looked upon the beauty, majesty, and ingenuity of the world around them with reverent wonder. The grandeur of the heavens, the regular rhythms of the sun and moon, the myriads of living creatures in all their splendid diversity, the magnificence of a rose flower, a butterfly’s wings or a snow crystal – the idea that all this might be the product of a mindless accident strikes many people as far-fetched. The ancient Greeks aptly called the universe kosmos, a word denoting order and harmony. This underlying order is reflected in many intriguing patterns in nature.

1. Phi and Fibonacci

Consider the line ABC in the following diagram:

Fig. 1.1

Point B divides the line in such a way that the ratio between the longer segment (AB) and the shorter segment (BC) is the same as that between the whole line (AC) and the longer segment (AB). This proportion is known by various names: the golden section, the golden mean, the golden ratio, the extreme and mean ratio, the divine proportion, or phi (φ). If the distance AB equals 1 unit, then BC = 0.6180339887… and AC = 1.6180339887… . The second of these two numbers is the golden section, or phi (sometimes this name is also given to the first number). Many designs in nature are related to the golden section, and it has been widely used in sacred architecture and artwork throughout the ages.

The golden section is an irrational, or transcendental, number, meaning that it never repeats and never ends. It is unique in that its square is produced by adding the number 1 (φ² = φ+1), and its reciprocal by subtracting the number 1 (1/φ = φ-1). (Phi equals (√5+1)/2, the positive root of x² = x+1.) The golden section is the only irrational number that approaches more closely to rationality the higher the power to which it is raised. For instance, φ3000 = 1.0000000000 x 10500.

The golden section is part of an endless series of numbers in which any number multiplied by 1.618 gives the next higher number, and any number multiplied by 0.618 gives the next lower number:

0.090 0.146 0.236 0.382 0.618 1.000 1.618 2.618 4.236 6.854 11.090
φ-5 φ-4 φ-3 φ-2 φ-1 φ0 φ1 φ2 φ3 φ4 φ5

Like phi itself, this series of numbers has many interesting properties:
•  each number is equal to the sum of the two preceding numbers;
•  the square of any number is equal to the product of any two numbers at equal distances to the left and right (e.g. 1.618² = 0.618 x 4.236);
•  the reciprocal of any number to the left of 1.000 is equal to the number the same distance to the right of 1.000 (e.g. 1/0.382 = 2.618).
(To obtain perfectly exact results, the numbers would have to be extended to an infinite number of decimals.)

The large rectangle below is a golden rectangle, meaning that its sides are in the proportion 1.000:1.618. If a square is removed from this rectangle, the remaining rectangle is also a golden rectangle. Continuing this process produces a series of nested golden rectangles. Connecting the successive points where the ‘whirling squares’ divide the sides of the rectangles in golden ratios produces a logarithmic spiral, which is found in many natural forms (see next section). A similar spiral can be generated from a golden triangle (an isosceles triangle whose sides are in the golden ratio), by repeatedly bisecting one of the angles to generate a smaller golden triangle.

Fig. 1.2

Fig. 1.3

    A number series closely related to the golden section is the Fibonacci sequence: it begins with 0 and 1, and each subsequent number is generated by adding the two preceding numbers:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987 …

If we take these numbers two at a time, and divide the larger one by the smaller one, the value will oscillate alternately above and below the golden section, while gradually converging on it. If we divide the smaller number by the larger number, the value converges on 1/φ (0.618). (Note that in any series of numbers in which we start with any two ascending numbers and add each consecutive pair to produce the next term, the ratio of successive terms will always tend towards φ.)

1/1 2/1 3/2 5/3 8/5 13/8 21/13 34/21 55/34 89/55 144/89
1.0 2.0 1.5 1.666 1.600 1.625 1.615385 1.619048 1.617647 1.618182 1.617978

    The Fibonacci sequence has many curious features. For example, the sum of any 10 consecutive Fibonacci numbers is always divisible by 11, being equal in fact to 11 times the seventh number. The sum of all Fibonacci numbers from the first to the nth is equal to the (n+2)th number minus 1. Thus the sum of the first 15 numbers (986) is equal to the 17th number (987) minus 1. The square of any term differs by 1 from the product of the two adjacent terms in the sequence: e.g. 3² = 9, 2×5 = 10; 13² = 169, 8×21 = 168. The last digit of any number in the sequence repeats itself with a periodicity of 60: e.g. the 14th number and the 74th number both end in 7. The last two digits (01, 01, 02, 03, 05, 08, 13, 21, etc.) repeat in the sequence with a periodicity of 300. For any number of last digits from three upwards, the periodicity is 15 times ten to a power that is one less than the number of digits, (e.g. for 7 digits it is 15 x 106, or 15 million).

2. Nature’s numbers

Many of nature’s patterns are related to the golden section and the Fibonacci numbers. For instance, the golden spiral is a logarithmic or equiangular spiral – a type of spiral found in unicellular foraminifera, sunflowers, seashells, animal horns and tusks, beaks and claws, whirlpools, hurricanes, and spiral galaxies. An equiangular spiral does not alter its shape as its size increases. Because of this remarkable property (known as self-similarity),* it was known in earlier times as the ‘miraculous spiral’.

*Shapes and forms that look similar under any magnification are known as fractals. Numerous apparently irregular natural phenomena display approximate self-similarity, meaning that similar patterns and details recur at smaller and smaller scales. This applies, for example, to the branching of lightning, rivers, trees, and human lungs. Other fractal objects include the chambered nautilus, a head of cauliflower, coastlines, clouds, snowflakes, and rocks (a magnified rock can look like an entire mountain).

Fig. 2.1 The Whirlpool Galaxy (M51).

Fig. 2.2 Each increment in the length of the nautilus shell is accompanied by a proportional increase in its radius, so that the nautilus does not need to adjust its balance as it matures.

Fig. 2.3 A ram’s heavy corkscrewed horns keep a stable centre of gravity as they grow.

Fig. 2.4 Owing to the structure of their compound eyes, insects such as moths follow an equiangular spiral when drawn towards a candle flame. Peregrine falcons, which have eyes on either side of their heads, follow a similar spiral path when flying at their prey.

Phi can be found in the proportions of the bodies of humans and other creatures, including birds, flying insects, frogs, fish, and horses. The height of a newborn child is divided by the navel into two equal parts (1:1), whereas in adults, the division of the body’s height at the navel yields two parts in the ratio 1:φ, though the navel is usually a little higher in females and a little lower in males. Phi is found in the proportion between the hand and the forearm, and between the upper arm and the hand plus forearm.

Fig. 2.5 Each section of an index finger, from the tip to the base of the wrist, is larger than the preceding one by about 1.618, fitting the Fibonacci numbers 2, 3, 5 and 8.

The DNA molecule measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angstroms wide for each full cycle of the double helix spiral. 34 and 21 are Fibonacci numbers and their ratio closely approximates phi. DNA has two grooves in its spirals, with a phi ratio between the major groove and the minor groove (roughly 21 angstroms to 13 angstroms).

Fig. 2.6

    The Fibonacci numbers and golden section are widely found in the plant kingdom. In nearly all flowers, the number of petals is a Fibonacci number. For instance, lilies have 3 petals, buttercups have 5, many delphiniums have 8, marigolds have 13, asters have 21, and daisies commonly have 13, 21, 34, 55 or 89. Non-Fibonacci numbers don’t occur anything like as often. For instance, very few plants have 4 petals, an exception being the fuchsia. Some plant species are very precise about the number of petals they have, e.g. buttercups, but with others only the average number of petals is a Fibonacci number.

Fig. 2.7 Shasta daisy with 21 petals.

    Fibonacci numbers are often found in the arrangement of branches, leaves, and seeds (phyllotaxis). If we look at a plant from above, the leaves are not arranged directly above one another, but in a way that optimizes their exposure to sun and rain. The Fibonacci numbers occur when counting both the number of times we go around the stem from one leaf to the next, and when counting the number of leaves we meet until we encounter one directly above the starting one. The number of turns in each direction and the number of leaves are usually three consecutive Fibonacci numbers.

In the diagram below, to get from the topmost leaf to the last of the 5 leaves of the plant on the left takes 2 anticlockwise turns or 3 clockwise turns. 2, 3 and 5 are three consecutive Fibonacci numbers. For the plant on the right, it takes 3 anticlockwise rotations or 5 clockwise rotations to pass 8 leaves. Again, 3, 5 and 8 are consecutive Fibonacci numbers. An estimated 90% of all plants display this pattern.

    Similar arrangements can be found in the scales of a pinecone or the seeds of a sunflower. The florets in the head of a sunflower form two intersecting sets of spirals, one winding clockwise, the other anticlockwise. In some species the number of clockwise spirals is 34, and the number of counterclockwise spirals is 55. Other possibilities are 55 and 89, or 89 and 144. Pineapples have 8 rows of scales sloping to the left, and 13 to the right. Again, these are successive Fibonacci numbers.

Fig. 2.9 Sunflower head.

Fig. 2.10 This pine cone has 13 spirals to the right and 8 to the left.

    The fact that in the arrangement of seeds on flower heads, the numbers of spirals in each direction are nearly always neighbouring Fibonacci numbers means that each seed is roughly 0.618 of a turn from the last one, i.e. there are roughly 1.618 seeds per turn. This results in optimal packing of the seeds, because no matter how big the seed head gets, the seeds are always equally spaced. Similarly, trees and plants tend to have 0.618 leaves or petals per turn. In terms of degrees this is 0.618034 of 360°, which is 222.5°. If we measure the angle going in the opposite direction around the circle, we get: 360 – 222.5 = 137.5°, which is known as the golden angle. The Fibonacci numbers appear in leaf arrangements and the number of spirals on seedheads because they form the best whole-number approximations to the golden section. The higher the numbers are on the Fibonacci sequence, the more closely the golden ratio and the golden angle are approached and the more complex the plant.

3. Pentads and hexads

Fig. 3.1 Each successive pair of heavy lines in this pentagram is in the golden ratio.

    The golden ratio appears in pentagonal forms of symmetry, notably in the five-pointed star (or pentagram), which was the emblem of the Pythagorean brotherhood. Pentagonal symmetry abounds in living organisms, especially plants and marine animals (e.g. starfishes, jellyfishes, sea urchins). Flowers with 5 petals (or multiples of 5) include all fruit blossoms, water lilies, roses, honeysuckles, carnations, geraniums, primroses, orchids, and passionflowers.

Fig. 3.5 The human body clearly expresses the pentad’s symmetry in its five senses and five extensions from the torso, each limb ending in five fingers or toes. (by Michael S. Schneider from A Beginner’s Guide To Constructing The Universe)

While pentagonal patterns abound in living forms, the mineral world favours twofold, threefold, fourfold, and sixfold symmetry. The hexagon is a ‘close-packing’ shape that allows for maximum structural efficiency. It is very common in the realm of molecules and crystals, in which pentagonal forms are almost never found. Steroids, cholesterol, benzene, TNT, vitamins C and D, aspirin, sugar, graphite – all show sixfold symmetry. The most famous hexagonal architecture is built by bees, wasps, and hornets.

cells (Bénard cells) in a heated liquid.

    The atmosphere of Saturn, one of the four gas giants, circulates around its axis in striped bands. Seen from the poles, the bands generally appear to be circular. But the band nearest the north pole is hexagonal, with sides about 13,800 km long. Unlike other clouds in its atmosphere, it rotates slowly, if at all, relative to the planet. It is one of Saturn’s most enigmatic features.

4. Platonic solids

A regular polyhedron is a three-dimensional shape whose edges are all of equal length, whose faces are all identical and equilateral, and whose corners all touch the surface of a circumscribing sphere. There are only five regular polyhedra: the tetrahedron (4 triangular faces, 4 vertices, 6 edges); the cube/hexahedron (6 square faces, 8 vertices, 12 edges); the octahedron (8 triangular faces, 6 vertices, 12 edges); the dodecahedron (12 pentagonal faces, 20 vertices, 30 edges); and the icosahedron (20 triangular faces, 12 vertices, 30 edges). In each case, the number of faces plus corners equals the number of edges plus 2. These five polyhedra are also known as the platonic or pythagorean solids, and are intimately connected with the golden section. Their striking beauty is derived from the symmetries and equalities in their relations.

Fig. 4.1 The five platonic solids. The ancients considered the tetrahedron to represent the element of fire; the octahedron, air; the icosahedron, water; and the cube, earth. The dodecahedron symbolized the harmony of the entire cosmos.

Fig. 4.2 An icosahedron’s 12 vertices are defined by three perpendicular golden rectangles. With an edge length of one unit, its volume is 5φ5/6.

The symmetry of the platonic solids leads to other interesting properties. For instance, the cube and octahedron both have 12 edges, but the numbers of their faces and vertices are interchanged (cube: 6 faces and 8 vertices; octahedron: 8 faces and 6 vertices). Similarly, the dodecahedron and icosahedron both have 30 edges, but the dodecahedron has 12 faces and 20 vertices, while for the icosahedron it is the other way round. This allows one solid to be mapped into its dual or reciprocal solid. If we connect the centres of all the faces of a cube, we obtain an octahedron, and if we connect the centres of the faces of an octahedron, we obtain a cube. The same procedure can be used to map an icosahedron into a dodecahedron, and vice versa. (In the Hindu tradition, the icosahedron represents purusha, the male, spiritual principle, and generates the dodecahedron, representing prakriti, the female, material principle.) The tetrahedron is self-dual – joining the four centres of its faces produces another, inverted tetrahedron.

  

Fig. 4.3

    There are two other ways of passing from dodecahedron to icosahedron, and icosahedron to dodecahedron. If we join interiorly all the vertices of an icosahedron, the lines will intersect at 20 points defining the vertices of a dodecahedron. If we then do the same with the resulting dodecahedron, a smaller icosahedron is generated within it, and so on, ad infinitum. Likewise, if we lengthen the sides of an icosahedron, an enveloping dodecahedron will be formed. Lengthening the sides of the dodecahedron will generate an enveloping icosahedron. Again, this operation can be repeated indefinitely – a fitting symbol of the theosophical teaching of worlds within worlds.

The sum of the angles of the platonic solids is 3600 degrees for the icosahedron, 6480 for the dodecahedron, 1440 for the octahedron, 2160 for the cube, and 720 for the tetrahedron. Each of these numbers is divisible by 9, which means that the sum of the digits is 9 (e.g. 6+4+8=18, 1+8=9). They are also divisible by the canonical numbers 12, 60, 72 and 360. As we shall see, the numerical elements of the five regular polyhedra frequently recur in nature’s cycles.

The platonic solids (especially the tetrahedron, octahedron, and cube) form the basis for the orderly arrangement of atoms in crystals, though the regular dodecahedron and icosahedron are never found.

Fig. 4.4 In salt crystals, the sodium chloride atoms tightly pack along cubic lines of force.

    Tetrahedral geometry commonly occurs in organic and inorganic chemistry and in submicroscopic structures. For example, the methane molecule (CH4) is a tetrahedron, with a carbon atom at its centre and a hydrogen atom at each of its four corners.

Carbon exists in three pure forms. In graphite crystals, the carbon atoms lie in hexagonal sheets, which readily slide off a pencil as we write. In diamond, the hardest substance known, each carbon atom is bonded to four others in a super-strong tetrahedral arrangement. Buckminsterfullerene, the third, highly stable allotrope of carbon, consists of 60 carbon atoms, arranged at the vertices of a truncated icosahedron (i.e. one with its corners cut off).

    The great majority of viruses are icosahedral, including the polio virus and the 200 kinds of viruses responsible for the common cold. Icosahedral symmetry is believed to allow for the lowest-energy configuration of particles interacting on the surface of a sphere. The five platonic solids are also found in radiolarian skeletons.

Fig. 4.6 The platonic solids have been found living in the sea. The tetrahedron, somewhat rounded as if from internal pressure, is embodied in a protozoan called Callimitra agnesae, the cube is Lithocubus geometricus, the octahedron Circoporus octahedrus, the dodecahedron Circorrhegma dodecahedrus, and the icosahedron Circognia icosahedrus.

5. Precession and yugas

Due to a slow gyration of the earth’s axis, the spring equinox occurs about 20 minutes earlier each year, when the earth is still about 1/72 of a degree (50 arc-seconds) from the point in its orbit where the previous spring equinox occurred. The vernal equinoctial point therefore moves slowly through the constellations of the zodiac. This key astronomical cycle is known as the precession of the equinoxes. The ancients called it the ‘great year’.

At the average rate of 1/72 of a degree per year, the earth enters a new constellation about every 2160 years, and takes 25,920 years to make a complete circuit of the zodiac. The entry into each new constellation marks the beginning of what is called in theosophy the Messianic cycle, which is said to be marked by the appearance on earth of a spiritual teacher or avatar (lit. a ‘descent’ of divinity); for instance, the commencement of the Piscean age was marked by the appearance of Christ. Interestingly, 2160 is the total number of degrees in the angles of a cube, and if a cube is opened out it forms the shape of a cross, a universal symbol representing the descent of spirit into matter, or the ‘crucifixion’ of spirit in the ‘tomb’ of matter.

The ancient chronological charts of the Brahmans refer to four great cycles or yugas. The krita- or satya-yuga lasts 4000 divine years, the treta-yuga 3000, the dvapara-yuga 2000, and the kali-yuga 1000, a ‘divine year’ being equal to 360 earth-years. Each yuga is introduced by a ‘dawn’ and concluded by a ‘twilight’, each equal to one-tenth of the period of the yuga. The total length of the four yugas in earth-years is therefore 1,728,000 for the satya-yuga, 1,296,000 for the treta-yuga, 864,000 for the dvapara-yuga, and 432,000 for the kali-yuga. The lengths of these four yugas are related in the ratio 4:3:2:1, i.e. they are all multiples of 432,000. If the individual digits of each yuga are added together, the result is always 9 (e.g. 1+2+9+6=18, 1+8=9).

The four yugas together make up one maha-yuga, lasting 4,320,000 years, which in theosophy is said to equal half the evolutionary period of a root-race or ‘humanity’, of which we are now in the fifth. The total life-period of earth, or a day of Brahma, is said to last 1000 maha-yugas or 4,320,000,000 years, and is followed by a rest period, or night of Brahma, of the same length, making a total of 8,640,000,000 years. 360 days and nights make up one year of Brahma, equal to 3,110,400,000,000 ordinary years. 100 years of Brahma make up an age of Brahma, this being the total life-period of our universal solar system, equal to 311,040,000,000,000 years. If we take the precessional cycle of 25,920 years and add to it a dawn and a twilight equal to one-tenth of its length, we get 31,104 – the initial digits of a year and age of Brahma.

4320 is twice 2160, the total number of degrees in a cube, the length of the Messianic cycle, and the average time it takes the equinoctial point to pass through one constellation of the zodiac. 432,000 is equal to 4 x 108,000, and 108,000 years is the average length of an astronomical cycle known as the revolution of the line of apsides. The line of apsides is the line joining that point in the earth’s elliptical orbit where it is closest to the sun (perihelion) and that point where it is furthest from the sun (aphelion). This line turns extremely slowly – by an average of 12 arc-seconds a year – from west to east, and therefore rotates through the whole zodiac in 108,000 years.

The sun has a radius of approximately 432,000 miles (432,475) and a diameter of about 864,000 miles, while the moon has a radius of 1080 miles and a diameter of 2160 miles. Silver, the metal associated with the moon, has an atomic weight of 107.9. In addition, 108 is roughly the average distance between the sun and earth in terms of solar diameters, the average distance between the surfaces of the moon and earth in terms of lunar diameters, and the diameter of the sun in terms of earth diameters (actual figures: 107.5, 108.3, and 109.1 respectively). As a result of these remarkable ‘coincidences’, the moon has the same apparent size as the sun, as seen from earth, and almost exactly covers the disk of the sun during a total solar eclipse.

Fig. 5.1

    According to conventional astronomy, in each precessional cycle the earth’s north pole slowly traces an approximate circle, with an average radius of about 23.5 degrees (the current inclination of its axis), around the north pole of the ecliptic – a point in the constellation Draco perpendicular to the plane of the earth’s orbit around the sun. (According to theosophy, the earth’s axis does not trace a circle but a spiral around the ecliptic poles, as the tilt of the earth’s axis is said to change by four degrees every precessional cycle.)

The ‘circle’ traced by the earth’s axis around the north ecliptic pole is not smooth but wavy, as the moon’s gravitational pull causes the earth to ‘nod’ about once every 18 years (currently 18.6 years), a movement known as nutation. The circle therefore contains about 1440 waves, since 18 x 1440 = 25,920. Note that the average human heartbeat is equal to 72 beats a minute, and on average we breathe about 18 times a minute. 72 years (= 6+60+6 or 6×12) is said to be the ‘ideal’ lifespan of a human being, during which time the sun moves through one degree of the zodiac in the precessional cycle. A human breathes 72 times in 4 minutes, the time required for the earth to turn 1 degree on its axis. In 24 hours (86,400 seconds) we breathe 18 x 1440 = 25,920 times, equal to the number of years in the precessional cycle.

Each human heartbeat takes about 8 tenths of a second. The time-periods occupied by each of the five cardiac phases, reckoned on the basis of one hour, are as follows: auricular systole, 432 seconds; ventricular systole, 1296 seconds; repose of the entire heart, 1728 seconds; diastole, 3024 seconds; and ventricular diastole, 2160 seconds. There are on average 4320 heartbeats in one hour, 8640 beats in 2 hours, 12,960 beats in 3 hours, 17,280 beats in 4 hours, 21,600 beats in 5 hours, and 25,920 beats in 6 hours.* In these figures we can recognize the digits of the four yugas, the Messianic cycle, and the precessional cycle (whose lengths are all multiples of 12, 60, 72, and 360). Thus, again and again we find correspondences between what takes place in the small (the microcosm) and what takes place in the great (the macrocosm) – as above, so below.

6. Formative power of sound

In the late 18th century, German physicist Ernst Chladni demonstrated the organizing power of sound and vibration in a visually striking manner. He showed that when sand is scattered on metal plates, and a violin bow is drawn across them, the resulting vibrations cause the particles to move to the places where the plate is almost motionless, producing a variety of beautiful, regular, intricate patterns.*

*Joscelyn Godwin makes an interesting comment on this phenomenon: ‘Once, passing by a crowded dance hall where rock was being played, I could not help perceiving the floor of the hall in terms of a Chladni plate, and the dancers appeared for all the world like the jumping, helplessly manipulated grains of sand’ (1995, p. 246).

    A century after Chladni, Margaret Watts-Hughes created images by placing a powder or liquid on a disk then letting it vibrate to the sound of a sustained musical note. She experimented with several musical instruments but had most success using her voice. The particles arranged themselves into geometric shapes, flower patterns (such as pansies, primroses, geraniums, and roses), or the shape of a fern or a tree. The higher the pitch, the more complex the patterns produced; a powerful sustained note produced an imprint of a head of wheat.

Fig. 6.2 Figures generated by the voice of Margaret Watts-Hughes.

    In the 1950s the study of wave phenomena was continued by Swiss scientist and anthroposophist Hans Jenny (1904-1972), who named the field ‘cymatics’. Using crystal oscillators (which allow precise frequencies and amplitudes to be used), he vibrated various powders, pastes, and liquids, and succeeded in making visible the three-dimensional effects of sound. He produced an astonishing variety of awe-inspiring geometrical and harmonic shapes, including life-like flowing patterns, which he documented in photographs and films.

Jenny, too, found that higher frequencies produced more complex shapes. A low frequency produced a simple central circle surrounded by rings, while a higher frequency increased the number of concentric rings. Even higher frequencies created shapes resembling petals, butterflies, or crustaceans, zebra patterns, mandala-like patterns, and images of the five platonic solids. As the frequency rises, the dissolution of one pattern may be followed by a short chaotic phase before a new, more intricate, stable structure emerges. If the amplitude is increased, the motions become all the more rapid and turbulent, sometimes producing small eruptions. Under certain conditions Jenny was able to make the shapes change continuously, despite altering neither frequency nor amplitude.

    More recently, Peter Guy Manners found that an acoustic recording of the Crab Nebula caused sand to form a pattern strikingly like the nebula itself. As the near-infrasonic sound was played, the two swirling arms pulled in, forming a tight ball. Towards the end of the audiotape, the sand became very highly compacted and then suddenly exploded, throwing sand off the table.

John’s Gospel begins: ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ The Egyptian Book of the Dead, contains a parallel passage: ‘I am the Eternal, I am Ra … I am that which created the Word … I am the Word …’ The Hindu tradition teaches that ‘Nada Brahma’ (the world is sound). The underlying idea is that everything we see is a divine word – or vibration – that has solidified and become manifest, the vibrations originating in the inner, more ethereal realms. All of nature is essentially rhythmic vibration. Everything from subatomic particles to the most intricate lifeforms, from planets to galaxies, comprises resonating fields of pulsating energy in constant interaction. In the poetic words of Cathie Guzzetta:

The forms of snowflakes and faces of flowers may take on their shape because they are responding to some sounds in nature. Likewise, it is possible that crystals, plants, and human beings may be, in some way, music that has taken on visible form. (D. Campbell, ed., Music: Physician for times to come, Quest, 1991, p. 149)

7. Planets and geometry

If we draw a circle representing the earth – which has a mean radius (in round numbers) of 3960 miles – and then draw a square around it, the square will have a perimeter equivalent to 31,680 miles. If we then draw a second circle with a circumference equal to the perimeter of the square, its radius will be 5040 miles (using 22/7 as a good approximation to pi (π), as the ancients often did) – or 1080 miles more than the smaller circle. Just as 3960 miles is the radius of the earth, 1080 miles is the radius of the moon. In other words, the relative dimensions of the earth and moon square the circle!

Fig. 7.1 Earth and moon square the circle. Note that 5040 (the radius of the outer circle) = 1x2x3x4x5x6x7 (known as ‘factorial 7’, also written: 7!) = 7x8x9x10 (or 10!/6!). A quarter of its circumference (also equal to the diameter of the earth-circle) = 7920 = 8x9x10x11 (or 11!/7!), and the area of each semicircle = 11!.

Exactly the same proportions and digits (expressed in feet rather than miles) can be found at Stonehenge (see Michell, 1995, 2001). The outer (sarsen) circle has a mean radius of 50.4 ft and a circumference of 316.8 ft. This is equal to the perimeter of a square drawn round the smaller (bluestone) circle, which has a radius of 39.6 ft. This radius is also equal to the diameter of the circle defined by the inner U-shaped structure. This is clear evidence that the ‘English’ foot and mile are at least as ancient as Stonehenge and, like many other ancient systems of measures, are closely related to the dimensions of earth, moon, and sun.

Fig. 7.2 Ground plan of Stonehenge. The lintels on top of the stones of the outer (sarsen) circle were mortised to the uprights and jointed at their ends, forming what was once a precision-made, perfectly level platform.

Fig. 7.3 Given its slope angle of 51.83°, the Great Pyramid, too, squares the circle. The length of each base side divided by the height equals π/2. In addition, the apothem divided by half the base side equals φ.

Fig. 7.4

    If a tetrahedron is inscribed in a sphere with the apex placed at either pole, the three corners of the base will touch the sphere at a latitude of 19.47 degrees in the opposite hemisphere. This latitude marks the approximate location of major vorticular upwellings of planetary and solar energy. The primary focus of sunspot activity is about 19.5° N and S. On Venus, there are volcanic regions at 19.5° N and 25.0° S. Mauna Loa and Kilauea (Hawaii), Earth’s largest volcanoes, are located at 19.5° and 19.4° N respectively. On the moon there is a mare-like lava extrusion at 19.6° S. On Mars, Olympus Mons, possibly the largest volcano in the solar system, is located at 19.3° N. The Great Red Spot of Jupiter is located at 21.0° S. On Saturn there are storm belts at 20.0° N and S. On Uranus, there are upwellings causing cooler temperatures at 20.0° N and S, and a dark spot at about 22.5° S. The Great Dark Spot of Neptune, photographed by Voyager 2 in 1989, was located at 20.0° S, but when the Hubble Space Telescope viewed the planet in 1994, the spot had vanished – only to be replaced by a dark spot at a similar location in the northern hemisphere.

8. Planetary distances

Are the planets of our solar system located at random distances from the sun? The Titius-Bode law, discovered 1766, suggests they are not. The law is obtained by writing down first 0, then 3, and then doubling the previous number: 6, 12, 24, etc. If 4 is added to each number and the sum divided by 10, the resulting numbers give the mean distances of the orbits of the planets in astronomical units (1 AU = the earth’s mean distance from the sun). Uranus, discovered in 1781, fitted the law, as did Ceres, the largest asteroid between Mars and Jupiter, discovered in 1801. However, the law breaks down completely for Neptune and Pluto, which were discovered later. Various efforts have been made to modify the Titius-Bode law to make it more accurate.*

*William R. Corliss, The Sun and Solar System Debris, Sourcebook Project, 1986, pp. 34-42.

What the Titius-Bode law essentially means is that planetary orbits become progressively greater by a ratio of approximately 2:1 (the ratio of the octave) with increasing distance from sun. This is brought out in columns 3 and 4 of the table below, in which half the distance between Mercury and Earth is taken as the unit of measurement. Uranus and Pluto have mean orbits close to the exact distances necessary to complete two further octaves. Neptune is located almost exactly half-way between Uranus and Pluto, as though to fill in the half-octave position. This may indicate that it was not an original member of the solar system (theosophy says it was captured from outside our solar system). Likewise, the Titius-Bode law works for Pluto if we ignore Neptune.

Neptune 38.8 30.061 (64×1.5=96) (96.8)
Pluto 77.2 39.529 128 127.7

Due to its ad-hoc nature, the Titius-Bode law is usually dismissed as a numerical coincidence that has no physical basis. However, the fact that the planets’ distances from the sun follow a pattern can easily be demonstrated by plotting the logarithm of the mean distance of the planets (including the asteroid belt) against their sequential number (1 to 10). The fact that all the points lie very nearly on a straight line proves that gravitation is ‘quantized’. However, there is currently no detailed mainstream theory that explains how gravity works and why it should be quantized. The orbits of satellites around moons show the same quantized spacing, as do the orbits of electrons around an atomic nucleus (in the Bohr model of the atom).

    Curiously, the mean orbital radii of the four inner and four outer planets reflect about the asteroid belt. For instance, if we multiply together the orbital radii of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus, we get virtually the same value as multiplying the orbital radii of Mercury, Earth, Saturn, and Neptune (5.51 x 1034 km as against 5.56 x 1034 km).

The spacing of the planets shows many geometrical regularities. For example:

Fig. 8.2 Three circles touching: if Mercury’s mean orbit passes through the centres of the three circles, Venus’ orbit encloses the figure (99.86% accuracy).

9. Solar system harmonies

The 17th-century astronomer Johannes Kepler discovered a remarkable relationship between a planet’s mean distance from the sun and the time it takes to orbit the sun: the ratio of the square of a planet’s period of revolution (T) to the cube of its mean distance (r) from the sun is always the same number (T²/r³ = constant). For instance, measuring T in earth-years and r in astronomical units, we get:

Venus:
0.61521²/0.7233³
 = 1.0002
Earth:
1.0000²/1.0000³
 = 1.0000
Mars:
1.88089²/1.5237³
 = 1.0000
Jupiter:
11.8623²/5.2028³
 = 0.9991

Orthodox science has no real explanation for this, or for the many ‘resonances’ in solar system dynamics. For instance, the periods of Jupiter and Saturn show a 2:5 ratio. The periods of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto stand in a 1:2:3 ratio. Mars and Jupiter are locked into a 1:12 resonance, Saturn and Uranus are in a 3:1 resonance, and there is a 2:3 resonance between Mercury’s rotational and orbital periods.

What is the nature of such ‘resonances’? Abstract mathematical concepts such as ‘curved spacetime’ shed no light on the matter. A concrete explanation must be sought in the behaviour of the dynamic ether filling space, whose vorticular motions cause the planets and stars to rotate and carry them along in their respective orbits. According to the ether-science model known as aetherometry, T²/r³ is a constant for all the planets because it refers to the constant flux of energy that the solar system as a whole extracts by its primary gravitational interaction with the ether, entailing a nearly constant energy supply for each of its members.

The speeds of the planets in their orbits represent their pitch-frequencies. Cosmic ‘chords’ are produced when planets come into conjunction (or ‘kiss’), i.e. stand in a straight line with the earth and sun. A certain number of regular planetary conjunctions occur over particular periods of time, and the ratios between these numbers reflect with considerable accuracy the length ratios necessary to produce the diatonic notes of an octave, i.e. the seven notes of a musical scale.

Fig. 9.1 Planetary conjunctions as ‘chords’ (Tame, 1984, p. 239).
The line in this diagram represents an octave, divided into seven intervals by eight notes. The line could represent the string of a one-stringed musical instrument. The numbers above the line are the numbers of conjunctions of each planet with the sun and earth, and those below the line are the numbers of years involved.

The planets’ orbits are ellipses with the sun at one of their foci. Their speeds are therefore variable: they speed up as they approach perihelion (the point in their orbit nearest the sun) and slow down as they approach aphelion (their greatest distance from the sun). Following Kepler, Francis Warrain expressed the ratio between the minimum and maximum speeds of one planet and those of different planets as a musical interval. The results (only those for the inner planets are given below) rule out chance altogether, and constitute ‘a powerful argument for the harmonic arrangement of the solar system’ (Godwin, 1995, pp. 132-6). Of 74 tones, as many as 58 belong to the major triad CEG.

The time taken by Venus to seemingly orbit the Earth (i.e. a Venus synod) is currently 584 days, so that 5 Venus synods are equivalent to 8 ‘practical’ earth-years (of 365 days). Venus has a sidereal orbital period of 225 days, and 13 of these periods equal 8 practical earth-years. In both cases, the numbers composing these ratios are consecutive Fibonacci numbers, and therefore give approximations to the golden section: 8/5 = 1.6, and 13/8 = 1.625. Venus rotates extremely slowly on its axis: its day lasts 243 earth-days, or 2/3 of an earth-year (the same ratio as a musical fifth). Every time Venus and earth ‘kiss’, Venus does so with the same face looking at earth. Over the 8 years of the 5 kisses, Venus will have spun on its own axis 12 times in 13 of its years.

Thus, in 8 years Venus has 5 inferior conjunctions (when it lies between earth and sun) and 5 superior conjunctions (when it lies on the opposite side of the sun). Plotting either of these sets of 5 conjunctions in relation to the zodiac produces a five-pointed star or pentagram, the segments of the constituent lines being related according to the golden section. There is a slight irregularity, for the pentagram is not completely closed, there being a difference of two days at the top. This irregularity generates a further cycle, as it means that the pentagram will rotate through the whole zodiac in a period of about 1200 years. It is interesting to note that the pentagram was associated with the Babylonian goddess Ishtar-Venus, and that depictions of Venus as a five-pointed star have also been found at Teotihuacan in Mexico. In theosophy, Venus is said to be closely connected with our higher mind (manas), the fifth principle of the septenary human constitution.

    According to theosophy, the key numbers to the solar system lie in a combination of the year of Saturn and the year of Jupiter, expressed in earth-years (Purucker, 1973, pp. 3-15). About 12 earth-years (11.86) make 1 year of Jupiter, and about 30 earth-years (29.46) make 1 year of Saturn: 12 x 30 = 360, the number of degrees in a circle and the number of days in an ideal earth-year. (Theosophy says that an earth-year oscillates above and below 360 days over very long periods of time.)

The whole process of evolution can be summed up as a descent of divine consciousness-centres or monads into matter, and their subsequent re-ascent to spirit, enriched by the experience gained on their aeons-long evolutionary journey. This process can be symbolized by two interlaced triangles, known as Solomon’s seal or the sign of Vishnu, the upward-pointing triangle representing spirit, and the downward-pointing triangle representing matter. Significantly, as Saturn and Jupiter revolve around the sun, they mark out two interlaced triangles around us every 60 years! The upward triangle is formed by their conjunctions and the downward triangle by their oppositions. Once again, there is a slight irregularity: after 60 years the conjunction does not take place at exactly the same point; there is a gap of 8 degrees, so that the interlaced triangles slowly rotate through the entire zodiac in a period of 2640 years. There are 432 of these 60-year Jupiter/Saturn cycles in a precessional cycle of 25,920 years.

    The sun is the heart and brain of the solar kingdom and the regular sunspot cycle is akin to a solar heartbeat. The sunspot cycle has a major impact on earth, especially terrestrial magnetism and the climate. Over the past 250 years its length has varied irregularly between 9 and 14 years, averaging 11.05 years. Sunspots peak shortly after Jupiter passes the point in its orbit closest to the sun. (The ‘ideal’ sunspot cycle is said in theosophy to be 12 years, so there would be one such cycle for each year of Jupiter.) The sunspot maximum does not occur exactly in the middle of the sunspot cycle. The ascending part of the cycle has a mean length of 4.3 years – very close to the figure of 4.22 years that would divide the 11.05-year cycle exactly according to the golden section.*

10. Intelligent habits

To attribute the order, harmonious proportions, and marvellous recurring patterns in nature to pure chance is absurd. The pagan philosopher Cicero wrote:

If anyone cannot feel the power of God when he looks upon the stars, then I doubt whether he is capable of feeling at all. From the enduring wonder of the heavens flows all grace and power. If anyone thinks it is mindless then he himself must be out of his mind. (On the Nature of the Gods, Penguin Classics, 1972, 2.55)

However, the traditional theological picture of ‘God’ as a supreme selfconscious being who thinks, plans, and creates – even managing to make the entire universe out of nothing – is untenable. If ‘he’ is a being, he must be finite and limited, and have a relative beginning and end. Whereas if the divine is infinite, it cannot be a thinking being, separate from the universe, but must be one with it, as taught by pantheism. The divine essence would then be synonymous with boundless space, or infinite consciousness-life-substance. And since nothing can come from nothing, it must always have existed.

Materialistic scientists prefer to attribute the patterned order of the cosmos to ‘laws of nature’, with new ones emerging ‘spontaneously’ as evolution proceeds. But this explains nothing, for the word ‘law’ simply denotes the regular operations of nature – the very regularities that the term is supposed to explain! Patterns in the living world are sometimes attributed to genetic programmes, but this is merely a declaration of faith, since all that genes are known to do is provide the code for making proteins – not for arranging them into complex structures. Moreover, it is hard to swallow the conventional claim that genetic programmes themselves originated by chance.

If some patterns arose through random genetic mutations and natural selection, it would mean, for example, that the reason the golden angle is widely found in leaf arrangements throughout the plant kingdom is because it contributed to their survival. This implies that at one time most plant species did not embody the golden angle – but such a claim can never be tested. What we do know is that life emerged on earth incredibly quickly, that new and fully functional types of organisms have tended to appear on earth incredibly quickly, and that there is no evidence whatsoever for vast periods of trial-and-error experimentation along darwinian lines.

The theosophic tradition, or ancient wisdom, teaches that nature’s patterns and regularities are better seen as habits, an expression of its ingrained instinctual behaviour, of the tendency for natural processes to follow grooves of action carved in countless past cycles of evolution. For it teaches that all worlds, on every conceivable scale, reembody again and again. And behind these habits lies an all-pervading consciousness, the universe being composed of interworking hierarchies of intelligent and semi-intelligent ‘beings’ or energy-forms, from elemental to relatively divine. The order of nature also reflects the essential interconnectedness of all things, and the fact that the same basic patterns and processes recur on widely different scales.

All monads, or units of consciousness, are said to progress through a series of kingdoms towards a state of relative perfection in the system of worlds in which they are then evolving, before passing, after a long rest, into other world systems, on other planes. Humans, in their present stage of rebellious selfconsciousness, often succumb to the temptation to misuse their free will for selfish and shortsighted ends, creating discord and suffering. But it lies within our power to attune ourselves to the fundamental harmony of our inner, spiritual selves – sparks of the universal ‘Self’ – and to become voluntary coworkers with nature in the great cosmic adventure of evolution.
