I am trying to work from universals downward and wish to find and then proceed step by step downward from the most spiritualto the more material. I wish every step to be logical and provable and subject to intense constructive criticism.
There are assumptions on which plane geometry is constructed. 'twould be neat to start at the beginning without any assumptions whatsoever, no?
When I listed the ten dots I am getting into an area that I would love to understand better but don't. I was delighted when a mathematician pointed out to me that the point, the two points of the line, the three points of the triangle and the four points of the tetrhedron form the ten points of the tetractys. So one has:
(on the microcosmic scale)
1. Logoic plane(state of consciousness)
2. Monadic plane
3. Atmic plane: Atma, the one mathematical point within the circle
4. Buddhic plane: the two points of the line
5. Manasic plane(higher Manas): the three points of the triangle
Manasic plane(lower Manas): the four points of the tetrahedron( here I'm not at all clear, I've always studied the SD down to the level of the triangle and then stopped, so . . . . help! I'm guessing that the tetrahedron stands for the concrete, practical mind)
The paragraph you have quoted seems so important and crucial to understand. Perhaps others might help clarify. Iwish to stay focussed on the problem of "where" the mathematical point comes from. I suspect that it is potential only at the logoic plane as there is nothing, no abstract space even, that might allow it to appear. The circle representing Total unconditioned consciousness and bare subjectivity must be PRESENT in order for the point to "Appear" and start the creative cycle once again. My experience is that I get tired, I forget, then I rest and meditate . . . . and remember: essentially it is all absolutely nothing whatsoever! To me this is a tiny spark of enlightenment. It takes so little to make fool laugh and giggle.
