Dear Tony,
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.
