Antimaterial Worlds: Part 4

The Vedic knowledge was thus imparted unto the heart of Brhama, the first living being in the material creation. It was Brahma who related this knowledge to the sage Narada Muni. Similarly, the Bhagavad-gita was spoken by the Personality of Godhead, Shree Krishna, to Vivasvan, the presiding deity of the sun, and when the aural chain of disciplic succession was broken, Lord Krishna repeated the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra. At that time, Arjuna took the role of disciple and student in order to receive transcendental knowledge from Shree Krishna. In order to drive out all misgivings which the gross materialists of the world may have, Arjuna asked all relevant questions, and the answers were given by Krishna so that any layman can understand them. Only those who are captivated by the glamour of material world cannot accept the authority of Lord Shree Krishna. One has to become thoroughly clean in habit and heart before one can understand the details of the antimaterial world. Bhakti-yoga is a detailed scientific transcendental activity that both the neophyte and the perfect yogi can practice.

The material world is only a shadow representation of the antimaterial world, and intelligent men who are clean in heart and habit will be able to learn, in a nutshell, all the details of the antimaterial world from the text of the Bhagavad-gita, and these are in actuality more exhaustive than material details. The basic details are as follows:

The presiding Deity of the antimaterial world is Shree Krishna, who exists in His original personality as well as in His many plenary expansions. This personality and His plenary expansions can be known only by antimaterial activities commonly known as bhakti-yoga, or devotional service. The Personality of Godhead is the supreme truth, and He is the whole antimaterial principle. The material principle as well as the antimaterial principle is an emanation from His person. He is the root of the complete tree. When water is poured onto the root of a tree, the branches and leaves are nourished automatically. And in the same way, when Shree Krishna, the Personality of Godhead, is worshiped, all details of the material worlds are enlightened, and the heart of the devotee is nourished without his having to work in a materialistic way. This is the secret of the Bhagavadgita. The process of entering into the antimaterial worlds differs from materialistic processes. The individual living being can very easily enter the antimaterial world by practicing antimaterial activities while residing in the material world. But those who are truly gross materialists, who depend on the limited strength of experimental thought, mental speculation and materialistic science, find great difficulty in entering the antimaterial worlds. The gross materialist may try to approach the antimaterial worlds by endeavoring with spaceships, satellites, rockets, etc., which he throws into outer space, but by such means he cannot even approach the material planets in the higher regions of the material sky, and what to speak of those planets situated in the antimaterial sky, which is far beyond the material universe. Even the yogis who have perfectly controlled mystic powers have great difficulty entering into that region. 

Master yogis who control the antimaterial particle within the material body by practice of mystic powers can give up their material bodies at will at a certain opportune moment and can thus enter the antimaterial worlds through a specific thoroughfare which connects the material and antimaterial worlds. If they are at all able, they act in accordance with the prescribed method given in the Bhagavad-gita:

Those who have realized the Transcendence can reach the antimaterial world by leaving their material bodies during the period of uttarayana, that is, when the sun is on its northern path, or during auspicious moments in which the deities of fire and effulgence control the atmosphere.

The different deities, or powerful directing officers, are appointed to act in the administration of cosmic activities. Foolish people who are unable to see the intricacies of cosmic management laugh at the idea of personal management of fire, air, electricity, days, nights, etc., by demigods. But the perfect yogis know how to satisfy these unseen administrators of material affairs and, taking advantage of the good will of these administrators, leave their material bodies at will during opportune moments arranged for entrance into the antimaterial universe or not the highest planets of the material sky. In the higher planets of the material world, the yogis can enjoy more comfortable and more pleasant lives for hundreds of thousands of years, but life in these higher planets is not eternal. Those who desire eternal life enter into the antimaterial universe through mystic powers at certain opportune moments created by the demigod administrators of cosmic affairs, administrators unseen by the gross materialists who reside on this seventh-class planet called "Earth."

Those who are not yogis but who die at an opportune moment due to pious acts of sacrifice, charity, penance, etc., can rise to the higher planets after death, but are subject to return to this planet [Earth]. Their going forth takes place at a period known as dhuma, the dark, moonless half of the month, or when the sun is on its southern path. In summary, the Bhagavad-gita recommends that one adopt the means of devotional service, or antimaterial activities, if one wishes to enter the antimaterial world. Those who adopt the means of devotional service, as prescribed by the expert transcendentalist, are never disappointed in their attempts to enter the antimaterial world. ALthough the obstacles are many, the devotees of Lord Krishna can easily overcome them by rigidly following the path outlined by the transcendental devotees. Such devotees, who are passengers progressing in the journey of life toward the antimaterial kingdom of God, are never bewildered. No one is cheated or disappointed when he adopts the guaranteed path of devotion for entrance into the antimaterial universe. One can easily attain all the results that are derived from the studies of the Vedas, performances of sacrifice, practice of penance and offerings of charities simply by the unilateral performance of devotional service, technically known as bhakti-yoga.

Bhakti-yoga is therefore the great panacea for all, and it has been made easy to practice, especially in this iron age, by Lord Krishna Himself in His most sublime, liberal and munificent appearance as Lord Shree Chaitanya (1486 - 1534), who appeared in Bengal and spread the sankirtana movement - singing, dancing, and chanting the names of God - throughout India. By Lord Chaitanya's grace, one can quickly pick up the principles of bhakti-yoga. Thus all misgivings in the heart will disappear, the fire of material tribulation will be extinguished, and transcendental bliss will be ushered in.

Antimaterial Worlds: Part 3

The transcendentalists and the materialists are two distinct classes of men. The transcendentalist gathers knowledge from authoritative scriptures like the Vedas. Vedic literature is received from authoritative sources which are in the line of transcendental disciplic succession. This disciplic succession (parampara) is also mentioned in the Bhagavad-gita. Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita that hundreds of thousands of years ago the Gita was spoken to the presiding deity of the sun, who delivered the knowledge to his son Manu, from whom the present generation of man has descended. Manu, in his turn, delivered this transcendental knowledge to his son King Iksvaku, who is the forefather in which the Personality of Godhead Shree Rama appeared. This long chain of disciplic succession was broken during the advent period of Lord Krishna (five thousand years ago), and for this reason Krishna restated the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna, thereby making him the first disciple of this knowledge in this age. The transcendentalist of this age, therefore, is in the disciplic line that starts with Arjuna. Without troubling himself with materialistic research work, the transcendentalist acquires the truths concerning matter and antimatter in the most perfect way (through this disciplic succession) and thereby saves himself much botheration.

The gross materialists, however, do not believe in the antimaterial worlds of the Personality of Godhead. They are therefore unfortunate creatures, although sometimes very talented, educated and advanced otherwise. They are bewildered by the influence of the material manifestation and are devoid of knowledge of things antimaterial. It is a good sign, therefore, that the materialistic scientists are gradually progressing toward region of the antimaterial world. It may even be possible for them to make sufficient progress to be able to know the details of this anti-material world, where the personality of Godhead resides as the predominating figure and where the living entities live with Him and serve Him. The living entities who serve the Godhead are equal in quality to Him, but at the same time they are predominated as servitors. In the antimaterial world there is no difference between the predominated and the predominator - the relationship is in perfection and without tinge of materialism.

The nature of the material world is destructive. According to the Bhagavad-gita, there is some partial truth to the assumption of the physical scientist that there is annihilation of the material and antimaterial worlds when they chance to clash. The material world is a creation of changing modes of nature. These modes (gunas) are known as sattva (goodness), rajas (passion) and tamas (ignorance). The material world is created by the mode of rajas, maintained by the mode of sattva, and annihilated by the mode of tamas. These modes are omnipresent in the material world, and as such, at every hour, every minute, every second, the process of creation, maintenance and annihilation is taking place all over the material universe. The highest planet of the material universe, Brahmaloka, is also subjected to these modes of nature, although the duration of life on that planet, due to the predominance of the mode of sattva, is said to be 4,300,000 x 1,000 x 2 x 30 x 12 x 100 solar years.

Despite this long duration, however, Brahmaloka is subject to destruction. Although life on Brahmaloka is fantastically long compared to life on Earth, it is only a flash in comparison to the eternal life of the nonmaterial worlds. Consequently, the speaker of the Bhagavad-gita, Lord Shree Krishna, asserts the importance of the antimaterial universe, which is His abode. Lord Krishna instructs that all the planets within the material universe are destroyed at the end of 4,300,000 x 1,000 x 2 x 30 x 12 x 100 solar years. And all the living entities inhabiting these material planets are destroyed materially along with the destruction of the material worlds. The living entity, however, is constitutionally an antimaterial particle. But unless he elevates himself to the region of the antimaterial worlds by cultivation of antimaterial activities, he is destroyed materially at the annihilation of the material worlds and is subject to take rebirth in a material shape with the rebirth of a new material universe. In other words, he is subject to the pains of repeated birth and death. Only those living entities who take to the loving service of the Personality of Godhead during the manifested stage of material life are undoubtedly transferred to the antimaterial worlds after quitting the material body. Immortality is obtained only by those who return to Godhead by practice of antimaterial activities.

What are these antimaterial activities? They are medicines. For example, when a man falls ill, he goes to a physician who prescribes medicines which eventually cure the suffering patient. Similarly, the materialist is ailing, and he should consult an expert transcendentalist-physician. What is his ailment? He is suffering the tribulations of repeated births, deaths, diseases and old age. Once he agrees to put himself under the "back to Godhead" treatment, he is able to transfer himself to the antimaterial world, where there is eternal life instead of birth and death.

Annihilation of the material world takes place in two ways. Partial annihilation occurs at the end of every 4,300,000 x 1,000 solar years, or at the end of each day of Brahmaloka, which is the topmost planet in the material world. During that time of partial annihilation, the topmost planets such as Brahmaloka are not annihilated, but at the end of each duration of 4,300,000 x 1,000 x 2 x 30 x 12 x 100 solar years, the entire cosmic manifestation is merged into the antimaterial body from whence the material principles emanate, manifest and merge after annihilation. The antimaterial world, which is far removed from the material sky, is never annihilated. It absorbs the material world. It may be that a "clash" occurs between the material and antimaterial worlds, as suggested by the scientists, and that the material worlds are destroyed, but there is no annihilation of the antimaterial worlds. The eternally existing antimaterial world is unmanifested to the material scientist. He can simply have information of it insofar as the principles of its existence are contrary to the modes of the material world. Full details of the antimaterial universe can be known only from the infallible source of liberated authorities who have thoroughly realized the constitution of the antimaterial principle. This information is received by aural reception by a submissive disciple of the Personality of Godhead.

Antimaterial Worlds: Part 2

There are, of course, the mental speculators who comment upon the antimaterial principle. These fall into two main groups, and they arrive at two different erroneous conclusions. One group (the gross materialists) either denies the antimaterial principle or admits only the disintegration of material combination at a certain stage (death). The other group accepts the antimaterial principle as being in direct opposition to the material principle with its twenty four categories. This group is known as the Shankyaites, and they investigate the material principle and analyze them minutely. At the end of their investigation, the Sankyaites finally accept only a transcendental (antimaterial) nonactive principle. However, difficulties arise for all these mental speculators because they speculate with the help of inferior energy. They do not accept information from the superior. In order to realize the real position of the antimaterial principle, one must rise to the transcendental plane of superior energy. Bhakti yoga is the very activity of superior energy.

From the platform of the material world, one cannot estimate the real position of the antimaterial world. But the Supreme Lord, who is the controller of both material and antimaterial energies, descends out of His causeless mercy and gives us complete information of the antimaterial world. In this way we can know what the antimaterial world is. The Supreme Lord and the living entities are both antimaterial in quality, we are informed. Thus, we can have an idea of the Supreme Lord by an elaborate study of the living entities. Every living entity is an individual person. Therefore, the supreme living being must also be the supreme person. In the Vedic literatures the supreme person is properly claimed to be Krishna. The name "Krishna," indicating the Supreme Lord, is the only truly intelligible name of the highest order. He is the controller of both material and antimaterial energies, and the very word "Krishna" signifies that He is the supreme controller. In the Bhagavad-gita the Lord confirms this as follows:

There are two worlds - the material and antimaterial. The material world is composed of inferior qualitative energy divided into eight material principles. The antimaterial world is made of superior qualitative energy.

Because both the material and antimaterial energies are emanations of the Supreme Transcendence, the Personality of Godhead, it is proper to conclude that I [Lord Krishna] am the ultimate cause of all creations and annihilations.

Because the Lord's two energies (inferior and superior) manifest the material and antimaterial worlds, He is called the Supreme Absolute Truth. Lord Krishna explains this in the Bhagavad-gita thus:
I am, Arjuna, the highest principle of transcendence, and there is nothing greater than Me. Everything that be rests on My energies exactly like pearls on a thread.

Long, long before the dicovery of the principles of antimatter and the antimaterial worlds, the subject was delineated in the pages of Bhagavad-gita. The Gita itself indicates that its philosophy had previously been taught to the presiding deity of the sun, which implies that the principles of the Bhagavad-gita were expounded by the Personality of Godhead long before the battle of Kurukshetra - at least some 120,000,000 years before.

Now modern science has just discovered a fraction of the truths that are available in the Bhagavad-gita. The assumption of an antimaterial universe is also found in the Bhagavad-gita. And from all data available it is to be assumed without the slightest doubt that the antimaterial world is situated in the antimaterial sky, a sky which is mentioned in Bhagavad-gita as sanatana-dhama, or the eternal nature.

Exactly as material atoms create the material world, the antimaterial atoms create the antimaterial world with all its paraphernalia. The antimaterial world is inhabited by antimaterial living beings. In the antimaterial world there is no inert matter. Everything there is a living principle, and the Supreme Personality in that region is God Himself. The denizens of the antimaterial world possess eternal life, eternal knowledge and eternal bliss. In other words, they have all the qualifications of God.

In the material world the topmost planet is called Satyaloka, or Brahmaloka. Beings of the greatest talents live on this planet. The presiding deity of Brahmaloka is Brahma, the first created being of this material world. Brahma is a living being like so many of us, but he is the most talented personality in the material world. He is not so talented that he is in the category of God, but he is the category of those living entities directly dominated by God. God and the living entities both be-long to the antimaterial world. The scientist, therefore, would be rendering service to everyone by researching the constitution of the antimaterial world - how it is administered, how things are shaped there, who are the presiding personalities, and so on. Of the Vedic literatures, Srimad-Bhagavatam deals elaborately with these matters. The Bhagavad-gita is the preliminary study of the Srimad-Bhagavatam. These two important books of knowledge should be thoroughly studied by all men in the scientific world. These books would give many clues scientific progress and would indicate many new discoveries.

Antimaterial Worlds: Part 1

Materialistic science may one day finally discover the eternal antimaterial world which has for so long been unknown to the wranglers of gross materialism. Regarding the scientists' present conception of antimatter, the Times of India (Oct. 27, 1959) published the following news release:
Stockholm, Oct. 26, 1959 - Two American atomic scientists were awarded the 1959 Nobel Physics Prize today for the discovery of the antiproton, proving that matter exists in two forms - as particles and antiparticles. They are Italian - born Dr. Emillo Segre, 69, and Dr. Owen Chamberlain, born in San Francisco ... According to one of the fundamental assumptions of the new theory, there may exist another world, or an antiworld, built up of antimatter. This antimaterial world would consist of atomic and subatomic particles spinning in reverse orbits to those of the world we know. If these two worlds should ever clash, they would both be annihilated in one blinding flash.

In this statement, the following propositions are put forward:
  1. There is an antimaterial atom or particle which is made up of the antiqualities of material atoms.
  2. There is another world besides this material world of which we have only limited experience.
  3. The antimaterial and material worlds may clash at a certain period and may annihilate one another.
Out of these three items, we, the students of theistic science, can fully agree with items 1 and 2, but we can agree with item 3 only within the limited scientific definition of antimatter. The difficulty lies in the fact that the scientists' conception of antimatter extends only to another variety of material
energy, whereas the real antimatter must be entirely antimateriial. Matter as it is constituted is subjected to annihilation, but antimatter - if it is to be free from all material symptoms -  must also be free from annihilation, by its very nature. If matter is destructible or separable, antimatter must be destructible and inseparable. We shall try to discuss these propositions from the angle of authentic scriptural vision.

The most widely recognized scriptures in the world are the Vedas. The Vedas have been divided into four parts: Sama, Yajur, Rig and Atharva. The subject matter of the Vedas is very difficult for a man of ordinary understanding. For elucidation, the four Vedas are explained in the historical epic called the Mahabharata and in eighteen Puranas. The Ramayana is also a historical epic which contains all the necessary information from the Vedas. So the four Vedas, the original Ramayana by Valmiki, the Mahabharata and the Puranas are classified as the Vedic literatures. The Upanishads are parts of the four Vedas, and the Vedanta- sutras represent the cream of the Vedas. To summarize all these Vedic literatures, the Bhagavad-gita is accepted as the essence of all Upanishads and the preliminary explanation of the Vedanta-sutras. One may then conclude that from the Bhagavad-gita alone one can have the essence of the Vedas, for it is spoken by Lord Shree Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who descendes upon this material worlds from the antimaterial world in order to give complete information of the superior form of energy.

The superior form of energy of the personality of Godhead is described in the Bhagavad-gita as para prakriti. The scientists have recently discovered that there are two forms of perishable matter, but the Bhagavad-gita describes most perfectly the concept of matter and antimatter in terms of two forms of energy. Matter is an energy which creates the material world, and the same energy, in its superior form, also creates the antimaterial (transcendental) world. The living entities belong to the category of superior energy. The inferior energy, or material, is called apara prakriti. In the Bhagavad-gita the creative energy is thus presented in two forms, namely apara and para prakriti.

Matter itself has no creative power. When it is manipulated by the living energy, material things are produced. Matter in its crude form is therefore the latent energy of the Supreme Being. Whenever we think of energy, it is natural that we think of the source of energy. For example, when we think of electrical energy, we simultaneously think of the powerhouse where it is generated. Energy is not self-sufficient. It is under the control of a superior living being. For example, fire is the source of two energies, namely light and heat. Light and heat have no independent existence outside of fire. Similarly, the inferior and superior energies are derived from a source, which one may call by any name. That source of energy must be a living being with full sense of everything. That supreme living being is the Personality of Godhead, Shree Krishna, or the all-attractive living being.

In the Vedas the supreme living being, or the AbsoluteTruth, is called Bhagavan - the opulent one, the living being who is the fountainhead of all energies. The discovery of the two forms of limited energies by the modern scientists is just the beginning of the progress of science. Now they must go further to discover the source of the two particles or atoms which they term material and antimaterial.
How can the antimaterial particle be explained? We have experience with material particles or atoms, but we have no experience with antimaterial atoms. However, the Bhagavad-gita gives the following vivid description of the antimaterial particle: This antimaterial particle is within the material body. Because of the presence of this antimaterial particle, the material body is progressively changing from childhood to boyhood, from boyhood to youth to old age, after which the antimaterial particle leaves the old, unworkable body and takes up another material body. This description of a living body confirms the scientific discovery that energy exists in two forms. When one of them, the antimaterial particle, is separated from the material body, the latter becomes useless for all purposes. As such, the antimaterial particle is undoubtedly superior to the material energy. No one, therefore, should lament for the loss of material energy. All varieties of sense perception in the categories of heat and cold, happiness and distress, are but interactions of material energy which come and go like seasonal changes. The temporary appearance and disappearance of such material interactions confirms the material body is formed of a material energy inferior to the living force, or jiva energy.

Any intelligent man who is not disturbed by happiness and distress, understanding that they are different material phases resulting from the interactions of the inferior energy, is competent to regain the antimaterial world, where life is eternal, full of permanent knowledge and bliss. The antimaterial world is mentioned here, and in addition information is given that in the antimaterial world there is no "seasonal" fluctuation. Everything there is permanent, blissful, and full of knowledge. But when we speak of it as a "world," we must remember that it has forms and paraphernalia of various categories beyond our material experiences.

The material body is destructible, and as such it is changeable and temporary. So is the material world. But the antimaterial living force is nondestructible, and therefore it is permanent. Expert scientists have thus distinguished the different qualities of the material and antimaterial particles as temporary and permanent respectively. The discoverers of the two forms of matter have yet to find out the qualities of antimatter. But a vivid description is already given in the Bhagavad-gita as follows. The scientist can make further research on the basis of this valuable information.

The antimaterial particle is finer than the finest of material particles. This living force is so powerful that it spreads its influence all over the material body. The antimaterial particle has immense potency in comparison to the material particle, and consequently it cannot be destroyed. This is but the beginning of the description of the antimaterial particle in the Bhagavad-gita. It is further explained as follows:

The finest form of the antimaterial particle is encaged within the gross and subtle material bodies. Although the material bodies (both gross and subtle) are subject to destruction, the finer, antimaterial particle is eternal. One's interest, therefore, should be in this eternal principle.

The perfection of science will occur when it is possible for the material scientists to know the qualities of the antimaterial particle and liberate it from the association of nonpermanent, material particles. Such liberation would mark the culmination of scientific progress.

There is partial truth in the scientists' suggestion that there may exist also another world consisting of antimaterial atoms and that a clash between the material and antimaterial worlds will result in the annihilation of both. There is a clash which is continually going on: the annihilation of the material particles is taking place at every moment, and the nonmaterial particle is striving for liberation. This is explained in the Bhagavad-gita as follows: The nonmaterial particle, which is the living entity, influences the material particle to work. This living entity is always indestructible. As long as the nonmaterial particle is within the lump of material energy - known by the names of gross and subtle bodies - then the entity is manifest as a living unit. In the continuous clashing between the two particles, the nonmaterial particle is never annihilated. No one can destroy the antimaterial particle at any time - past, present or future.

Therefore, we think that the theory maintaining that the material and antimaterial worlds may clash, resulting in the annihilation of both worlds, is correct only within the context of the scientists' limited definition of antimatter. The Bhagavadgita explains the nature of the antimaterial particle, which can never be annihilated:

The fine and immeasurable antimaterial particle is always indestructible, permanent and eternal. After a certain period, however, its encagement by material particles is annihilated. This same principle also operates in the case of the material and antimaterial worlds. No one should fear annihilation of the antimaterial particle, for it survives the annihilation of material worlds.

Everything that is created is annihilated at a certain stage. Both the material body and the material world are created, and they are therefore subject to annihilation. The antimaterial particle, however, is never created, and consequently it is never annihilated. This also is corroborated in the Bhagavad-gita: 

The antimaterial particle, which is the vital force, is never born or created. It exists eternally. It has neither birth dates nor death dates. It is neither repeatedly created nor destroyed. It is eternally existing, and therefore it is the oldest of the old, and yet it is always fresh and new. Although the material particle is annihilated, the antimaterial particle is never affected.

The principle is also applicable to the antimaterial universe as well as to the antimaterial particle. When the material universe is annihilated, the antimaterial universe exists in all circumstances. This will be explained in more detail later. The scientist may also learn the following from the Bhagavadgita:

The learned man who knows perfectly well that the antimaterial particle is indestructible knows that it cannot be annihilated by any means.

The atomic scientist may consider annihilating the material world by nuclear weapons, but his weapons cannot destroy the antimaterial world. The antimaterial particle is more clearly explained in the following lines:

It is neither cut into pieces by any material weapon, nor is it burnt by fire. Nor is it moistened by water, nor withered, nor dried up, nor evaporated in the air. It is indivisible, nonflammable and insoluble. Because it is eternal, it can enter into and leave any sort of body. Being steady by constitution, its qualities are always fixed. It is inexplicable, because it is contrary to all material qualities. It is unthinkable by the ordinary brain. It is unchangeable. No one, therefore, should ever lament for what is an eternal, antimaterial principle.

Thus, in the Bhagavad-gita and in all other Vedic literatures the superior energy (antimaterial principle) is accepted as the vital force, or the living spirit. This is also called the jiva. This living principle cannot be generated by any combination of material elements. There are eight material principles which are described as inferior energies, and they are: (1) earth, (2) water, (3) fire, (4) air, (5) ether, (6) mind, (7) intelligence, (8) ego. 

Apart from these is the living force, or the antimaterial principle, which is described as the superior energy. These are called "energies" because they are wielded and controlled by the supreme living being, the Personality of Godhead (Krishna). For a long time the materialist was limited within the bound ary of the eight material principles mentioned above. Now it is encouraging to see that he has a little preliminary information of the antimaterial principle and the antimaterial universe. We hope that with the progress of time the materialist will be able to estimate the value of the antimaterial world, in which there is no trace of material principles. Of course the very word "antimaterial" indicates that the principle is in opposition to all material qualities.

The Significance Of Solomon's Triangle In Goetian Ritual

Triangle In Geometry 

A triangle is one of the basic shapes of geometry: a polygon with three corners or vertices and three sides or edges which are line segments.In Euclidean geometry any three non-collinear points determine a unique triangle and a unique plane.

Triangle As a Symbolism

The symbolic idea of a triangle are interpreted in many ways in different cultures around the globe.In Jewish religion,two triangles,one vertical and the other horizontal,together forms a 'Hexagram',which signifies the chalice and the blade,the union of male-female power.

Among Greeks the Lunar(Vertical) and the Solar(Horizontal) astrological calculation are depicted in triangles.This shows how even a simple shift of this symbol can offer a huge variation in its meaning.

All the mystic teachings incorporate the power of three within their folds.Also three represents the union of number prior to it (one and two-1+2=3). Numerologically speaking,if one represents force and two represents an opening,the three is the birth of wisdom.For example;
Spirit     Mind        Body
Father   Son          Holy-ghost
Creator  Destroyer  Sustainer
Love      Truth         Wisdom

The symbolic idea here,is that vertical side represents one aspect,the horizontal side another aspect,and the hypotenuse is the offspring of the combining sides.the combination of one and another produces a new being altogether (a child as it were).
This among other complexities is where the triangle symbol meaning of creation/creativity is stemmed.Each sides and corner sings out a melody,and their combination in form creates a marvelous harmonic orchestration.

Triangle Of Solomon
In the Solomon's ritual of the Goetian magick,Triangle represented the first psychological plane of the manifestation.It act as a cage containing and restraining the spirits/demons one evoke.

Let us imagine we are participating,the original act of creation back at the dawn of time,out in the vast reaches of the cosmic space.First we create just one point in the emtyspace,then God establish the second point and connected to the first,so do we have a line here,then we plot our third point,the point of the psychic power,now connecting all the three points we have a triangle,the first flat surface.After that we create a thing,by making a circle inside the triangle and as long as we refrained to establish the point five (the imaginary point of concentration),setting everything in motion.Now we will constrain our creation to remain in this position.So that we would keep our spirit or the demon within the triangle.

Traditionally the name of Archangel Michael,the angel of power is divided within the circle as MI-CHA-EL within the three corners of the triangle,to add a visual emphasis to the sacred and symbolic geometry that bond spirits and demons.The Archangels are the positive energies,we conceive them according to our own imagination,that we must have them inside as well as outside.Also it has three sacred names of the Gods,Tetragrammaton-Primeumaton-Anaphaxeton on each sides which will make them conjured spirit or demon to obey.

* Practicing the magickal rituals mentioned in this blog,without expert supervision,is extremely dangerous.

The Power Of Mind And Solomon's Ceremonial Magick Of Goetia

*This is just a small interpretation from the vast ocean of Occult.As I am just a speck of dust floating in it.

Hear Me, and make all Spirits subject unto Me: so that every Spirit of the Firmament and of the Ether:upon the Earth and under the Earth: on dry Land and in the Water: of Whirling Air, and of rushing Fire and every Spell and Scourge ofGod may be obedient unto Me.

The Goetian magick aka 'The lesser Key of the Solomon',is an ancient psycho-spiritual development that has been misunderstood and maligned.Practitioners of Solomon's magick are not satanist who make "Pact with the Devil".They are spiritual explorers in the deep caverns of the mind.Carrying with them the lamp of wisdom and armed with the power of God.

The Lesser Key of the Solomon,in which cataloged and described seventy two genies/Jinn/Demons of the Arabian Nights,where king Solomon had imprisoned in a brass vessel.Once this magick involved making the spirits to manifest physically,which now the technique had lost in time.While the modern writers suppress the main element and they are not aware of it.Later the famous or the infamous modern day British black magician Aleister Crowley edited the lost scriptures,and introduced it as 'Goetia'.

Evoking the demons,in to the brass vessel was initiated with a greater care and strict rules of the magick cultivated by the greater King Solomon.When Solomon,evoked the demons to the brass vessel during the ceremonial magick,it came from nowhere,but from the portions of mind.The Solomon's genies never resided deep underground neither anywhere our eye can caught,infact it was from deepest part of our mind itself.The human imagination inspired by its creator itself,is the most powerful force in the universe.Once the great poet William Wordsworth,described mind;

Not Chaos, not the darkest pit of lowest Erebus, nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out by help of dreams-can breed such fear and awe as fall upon us often when we look into our Minds, into the Mind of Man.-William Wordsworth-

The actual ceremonial magick are powerful and effective,but subtle and subjective in nature.Only a healthy and powerful mind can yield the perfection in this initiation and those can travel deep inside themselves without any fear.The whole ceremony of the 'Solomon's  Lesser Key' was a kind of ancient system of psychology.It is said that the human mind is a miniature functioning model of the vast universe itself.And the greater universe can be manipulated by the magickal operation within the sphere.The great German magician and Occult writer Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa once quoted in the famous Biography Antiqua;

Such things it are delivered and writ by great and grave philosophers, whose traditions who dare say are false? Nay, it were impious to think them lies: only there is another meaning than what is writ with the bare letters. We must not, he adds, look for the principle of these grand operations without ourselves: it is an internal spirit within us, which can very well perform whatsoever the monstrous Mathematicians, the prodigious Magicians, the wonderful Alchymists, and the bewitching Necromancers, can effect.

The Emerald Tablet, also known as Smaragdine Table, Tabula Smaragdina, or The Secret of Hermes, is a text purporting to reveal the secret of the primordial substance and its transmutations. It claims to be the work of Hermes Trismegistus ("Hermes the Thrice-Greatest"), a legendary Hellenistic combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth.In this tablet,it was inscribed;

"True, without falsehood, certain and most true, that which is above is as that which is below, and that which is below is as that which is above, for the performance of the miracles of the One Thing."

As one of the mysterious presence,that gives the feeling and sensation,that we are alive,the human minds conceive our life itself in the cycle of time.Beyond the conscious mind is the subconscious or beyond conscious awareness.The subconscious mind stores all the information we obtain through out our lives.We all use our subconscious and conscious mind together to forecast,the estimation of unknown situation or even to predict the future.But because  this information is so elementary that we take this information as for granted and do not realize that we are pulling this information from our supplementary database or subconscious mind.

In 1920,the famous Swiss psychiatrist and the founder of Analytical Psychology Carl Gustav Jung proposed the theory of,'Collective Unconscious' from his Analytical Psychology.It states that,this mysterious psychic ocean was not share on exclusive property of any individual human being.It was a dimension shared by all of us.Its here you will meet every demons and the devils you created,here man created the God.And its is here where the demons of King Solomon's brass vessel took form/birth

“My thesis then, is as follows: in addition to our immediate consciousness, which is of a thoroughly personal nature and which we believe to be the only empirical psyche (even if we tack on the personal unconscious as an appendix), there exists a second psychic system of a collective, universal, and impersonal nature which is identical in all individuals. This collective unconscious does not develop individually but is inherited. It consists of pre-existent forms, the archetypes, which can only become conscious secondarily and which give definite form to certain psychic contents.” -Carl Jung-

So before the practice,the practitioners are mentally trained,armed and armored,like the knights of the olden times,before entering in to the realm of spirits.Hence,never consider these initiations as some party games or some silly mind tricks.That every aspect of the system,on spiritual,psychological and technical must be throughly understood.Else,opening the brass vessel,is like opening a 'Pandora Box.
