15 Mar On correspondence between lower and higher states
This paper treats the concept of philosophical correspondence. Abstract forms contain information which manifests as physical phenomena. The connection between the highest realms of the abstract and the lowest realms of the physical is called correspondence.
The whole is more than the sum of its parts
This concept is evident in classical writing, and has to do with the distinction between states. Apperception, or a condition of super awareness, in philosophical correspondence is defined as enhanced extra sensory perception. In the place of this writing: Merida, Venezuela, in the Andes Mountains, apperception and telepathy are in evidence as a normal condition.
Besides the communication inherent to telepathy, a tangential form of communication is the discussion of illness. The result is continual hypochondria, or imaginary sickness, and enhanced aggravation of bodily complaints such as allergies. This connection between the physical body and the imagination is a form of correspondence between states.
Correspondence between lower and higher states of being is as old as civilization. In the Western tradition the Egyptian scribe is the go between. He writes to all who are able to understand his symbols and metaphors written in ink on papyrus paper.
Egyptian writing is occult, in that there is a constant necessity felt to private information and understandings that have been revealed to the scribe. Through much sacrifice and devotion he has come to know the spirits of the divinities to whom he has devoted his life. This information is not open to those less devoted.
The occult tradition continues. Knowledge is precious to those who have dedicated their lives to learning and recording what they have come to know. Those who wish to have a share in this knowledge must demonstrate that they are worthy of it and that they deserve recognition.
In the comparatively short time that we have come to know how to produce, control and harness electricity, we have developed instruments which enable us to generate particles (pieces of things rather than wholes) which perform various kinds of useful work, such as that of microparticles. We have observed that the behaviour of these particles is not constant. All of them exist for a time, and then cease to exist. We have not been able to control this shift in and out of existence, which is a sort of duality, but we have named it; we call it autonomy.
We have also come to understand that all that we know and remember is subject to this autonomous disappearance. However, as modern Westerners we do not hide or conceal what we have learned. On the contrary (unlike the Egyptian scribes) we try to inform everybody about what we have discovered, and what we continue to learn.
Our tradition in science is from the Greeks, and like them our object has been to create and develop completely new kinds of understanding. The Greeks, in the manner of the Phoenicians, instead of starting at the bottom of a stone slab and inscribing upwards, begin at the left and move toward the right.
As scientists we do not limit the expression of our understanding to words. We use mathematics and geometry. So what we have geometrically is a line, which is composed of points (point particles) proceeding toward the objective, i.e., an expression of the exact truth. It is not a qualitative truth, or a kind of feeling, but a mathematical figure.
Furthermore, it is a new truth that has never been expressed before. It is the creation of language art, just as sculptures, and paintings, and music are pieces of art. However, this art must be original. Playing music by a composer is not original art, just as a photo of a statue is not original; albeit such copied art may serve as inspiration in the same way that a memory of the past may bring us renewed faith and hope.
Teachers from individual history appear and repeat their dictums. One repeats, “save yourself, do not permit irrelevant forces to deviate you from your own line of development.” Another teacher contradicts him, she says, “that man had no line of development, he switched always from one influence to another, but you have a line of development, I saw it even before I met you.”
Besides our teachers, there are the great popular exponents of the occult, the famous psychologists and philosophers; the great leaders of belief systems from every culture, the authors of the sacred scriptures. And yet all writing that treats the occult, the opening of the third eye, or the exploration of a sixth sense that may be developed in the quest for spirit, is tinted with the same brush. The nature of the occult is to hide, and this secrecy, this obscurity with its tendency to lapse into the cryptic is innate.
The Greek way is to abandon the occult. Clarity, transparency and scrupulous honesty are the watchwords. Myths, both cultural and individual, are not admitted. Repetition and redundancy, as well as involvement with work that has already been adequately expressed (the so called Occam’s razor) is anathema. Anything done in the pursuit of fame or money is abhorrent to the spirit of the knowledge required to create that which has never existed before.
One such branch of knowledge is that pertaining to the photon. Now that we know that all particles are of an inconstant nature we have found it convenient to distinguish between the photon as a mathematical entity, and the photon as non-mathematical; a visible particle like a distant star in a galaxy other than that of Earth.
We have now available a world view of each and every being as a particle. At every moment we dip into the ever refining pool of the good. A piece of Australian Aboriginal art shows a two dimensional section of a kangaroo against a background of particles. The leg of the kangaroo composed of particles, merges with the pool of particles in the background scenario depicting the habitat of the animal.
The lower worlds of conflict between isolated individuals have no relevance to the apperceptive. We are in heaven. This celestial realm is not only the good world spirit always endeavouring to improve itself, but is also the realm of perfection in which each and every autonomous unit is immaculate. Here, there is no hindrance to the work of creation. Using all of the knowledge that universal art makes available we pursue the formation of that which has never existed before.
We do this in the time modes that are convenient, such as the intermittent, or the chronological. The mode of historic myth is replaced by the immediate, so that we actually become the desired object of our vision. We become the persons, the places, and the states of being which enable the kingdom and the republic. These states of being are metaphysical; but we are also able to recall to physical memory states such as those seen under beams of photonic light.
Let us conclude by reviewing what we have done:
The individual exists only as an atom.
Entropy is replaced by the concept of an improving universe open to growth.
Correspondence between lower and higher realms is defined and established.
