2. The Thirteen Intentions of Creation

2.1 The Model of Creation

The Model of Creation is an abstract / conceptual model illustrating the main aspects of Creation. One can imagine it as an abstract picture taken by a photographer who briefly enjoyed a panoramical view of Creation. Such possibility is however purely hypothetical, since nothing can exist "outside" of Creation. According to the definition given in Section 1.5, Creation is a recursive totality that includes all possible realities / worlds, and so there is no outside world that is not already a part of Creation.

There are four main elements in the Model of Creation: the Origin, the Line, the End, and the Result. They are shown in the diagram below.

Figure 2.1 - The Model of Creation
Origin
The Origin is the point of reference for everything in the Model. Its symbol is a circular infinity, which represents the unification of zero and infinity into a singularity. The Origin is the core / essence / source / spirit of Creation, that also carries within itself an infinite creative intelligence -- let us call it the Creator. But if we interpret the Origin as some kind of world / place / universe, then it becomes a true, divine and perfect manifestation of Creation: the Divine Creation, also known as Heaven or Paradise. It is important to understand, however, that Creation is not only the Origin but also all other Model elements taken as a whole. The difference here is that we are focusing only on the core aspect of Creation while ignoring the "fringes" of Creation outside of the Origin that stretch the boundaries of the Artificial Creation (a.k.a. Universal Matrix, Nature, Virtual Reality) to a maximum limit (Result).
Line
The Line represents the distance between the Origin and the End. It can also represent a process that extends the boundaries of the Artificial Creation as one walks away from the Origin. Being absolute, Creation cannot be rejected or denied, and thus attempting to do so is akin to feed an illusion. In fact, denying the Origin can only lead one to the Result at most.
End
The End is the farthest point from the Origin. It represents the goal of those willing to go as far from the Origin as possible in search for oblivion, unconsciousness. The problem, of course, is that a state in which Creation is seemingly no more is still a state pertaining to Creation. Therefore, searching for oblivion may very well be a futile endeavor, but it still plays a purpose in leading one to the Result at most.
Infinity and zero are the conceptual extremes behind any conflict in the universe. The Artificial Creation is based on the mutual exclusiveness (i.e., duality) between these two. The End can coincide with either one of them: a person can choose either zero or infinity as an ideal to follow, but not both at the same time. It is a duality of choice that is in direct opposition to the unified (non-dual) and also spiritual nature of the Origin.
Result
The Result represents a theoretical limit for the process of the Line. Theoretical because the process does not necessarily stop at this point; instead, real progress ends and an illusion of progress begins, which means that from the Result onward we can only hope to walk in circles as long as we are still looking for the End. Alternatively, the Result can be interpreted as the surface of a mirror that delimits the passage from a real half to an illusory (dream-like) one.
X
The numeric variable X is a delimiter to how far the universe of the Artificial Creation can reach. According to the research presented in this book, the official value of X is 13.

When we said that Creation is not only the Origin but also all other elements in the Model, we were alluding to the paradoxical nature of absolute concepts such as Creation. An absolute concept does not have to be just one thing in particular; on the contrary, it can be everything and nothing at the same time. As nothing, Creation is the Origin, and as everything, Creation is the entire diagram shown in the Model. More specifically, the distance between the Origin and the Result can be taken as a blown-up (exploded) version of the Origin, whereas the Origin is a condensed (imploded) version of that same distance.

Figure 2.2 - Instances of the Model of Creation

Each instance (copy) of the Model is like a snapshot of Creation. An entire snapshot is actually the Origin element inside another instance. Therefore, from a dynamic perspective we may imagine that, when the process of the Line reaches the Result, a new instance of the Model begins with the process rewired back to the beginning at the Origin. This of course ties with the cyclical nature of Existence as we will see in Chapter 3. Notice that the term instance is appropriate because the Model of Creation is a basic template that never changes.

Myths of Creation

In several myths of Creation, the notion of a supreme intelligence behind all creation is strongly related to the idea of an omnipotent being responsible for the creation of the universe. This notion is prevalent among many cultures and societies, and for a very good reason: any person as the individual they are cannot help but project the notion / perspective of individuality in everything, and thus they have to personify Creation as an individual being in order to understand It better. The result of an absolute concept such as Creation that becomes individualized and hence personified is an absolute being that may be given the name of Creator. (Note: there is a reflection between how beings can imagine a creator god and what beings are themselves in their own spiritual nature. This will be further discussed in Chapter 4.)

Absolute concepts are like platonic ideals. Capitalization is a way to ensure that we are talking about an absolute instead of the ordinary meaning of the respective word / term. That is because sometimes the names of absolutes are borrowed from words that have ordinary (lowercase) usage. Until now we have seen that Creation, Creator, the Whole and Consciousness are all absolutes due to their transcendental qualities. Now, the trick we must perceive is, if an absolute concept is always referring to an incontestable authority, then two or more of them must be different titles for the same Thing (Absolute). That is, it is simply not worth it to give only one title to the Absolute, because each absolute concept embodies a different aspect of the Absolute that could easily go unnoticed if left unmentioned. There is nothing wrong with us using different terms to try to build a complete picture of the Absolute; we only need to remember that the Absolute is not limited to have a single identity.

Existence = Universe = Whole = Creator = Creation = Reality = ..
Schematics 2.1 - Absolute concepts

Absolute concepts refer to infinity and so they cannot be defined through limited means of communication. Of course, their meanings can always be approximated with words and symbols, but the moment we bring in a description of an absolute concept, we define it, and the moment we define it we frame it in limitation and we deceive its true essence. The idea prevalent among those who are addicted to symbolic representations of the Absolute is that there is hidden / occult meaning behind their symbols that only a selected few can comprehend. Not only this creates many ills associated with elitism, but it is also a misleading approach to the Absolute: whatever the Absolute is, may even transcend the meaning of meaning. Certainly, the Absolute does not need to have a fixed meaning, and even if It does, this meaning does not need to be one that is hidden. The very meaning of the word meaning implies that nothing is quite what it is, but rather is representative of something else. In this sense, any attempt to convey meaning to the Absolute will always remain as an open question.

As a personified absolute concept, the Creator represents someone that is manifest and immanifest at the same time. As manifest He embodies All That Is (Creation), and as immanifest He is beyond anything that can be imagined. While the Creator is the essence and the spirit of Creation, Creation is the entirety of existence; Creation entails everything. Therefore, it may not be a good idea to depict or conceive the Creator as an individual, because He is everywhere (omnipresent) yet nowhere in particular; He is everybody yet nobody in particular. At the least, the Creator is an abstract entity that does not need or want any kind of special devotion from people. In fact, worshiping the Creator may be an insult, as when someone passes judgment on the appearance of a person while ignoring who the person really is beyond the body.

God is a common denomination for the Creator seen as an anthropomorphic deity. All kinds of attributes are traditionally ascribed to God by many cultures, but ultimately they are nothing more than petty attempts at molding the Creator to fit a certain image. It only creates mass confusion, and where there is mass confusion there is opportunity for a few to reign over many. It does not matter if you believe in God or not, because God is a title and the Creator is beyond titles. The Creator does not indulge in customs and categories; He is far more like an abstract entity representing the creative principle behind the universe than He is an individual being with definite (human) form. The Creator is beyond form, but He is also the eternal aspect of the form, the eternal force that holds ideas together in manifested form. Everything exists as ideas (thoughts) in the mind of the Creator.

Anyway, people are free to have limited ideas about the Creator. A major problem, however, is that at the instant that they identify the Creator with a god, the potential for the existence of an opposite, an anti-god, is automatically created. Naturally, we may argue that a creator can be complemented by an anti-creator, but then we must ask ourselves about who created the anti-creator, because by definition an anti-creator cannot create, only destroy. Therefore, eventually we have to stop the causal reasoning and acknowledge the existence of a self-creating creator, that is, one that creates and/or recreates himself continually along with everything else. A self-creating creator is the same thing as an absolute creator, who is also responsible for the creation of any opposites and/or counterparts he may have.

Figure 2.3 - Ancient of Days

Another reason why Creator is a better denomination than God is because it puts extra emphasis on the act of creating and the role of creator, both of which should be fundamental notions to any rational mind: if something exists, it must have been created by some kind of intelligence. To think of a Creator also helps to take religious bias out of the way when we are discussing God. Anyway, there is nothing wrong with us using the title God as long as we are strictly referring to the Creator. The name by which we refer to the Creator is not all important as long as we have the understanding that we are talking about a personified aspect of the Absolute, which is boundless and cannot even be properly defined with the utilization of a single name.

The idea of antithesis concerning the Creator / God is not exclusively related to mythical personages such as Satan and Lucifer. Everything is potentially the inverse of the Creator, because Creation is nothing more than a mirror image of the Creator. The many aspects of Creation are the many symbols for the Creator. Symbols are like features of the Creator's image in the mirror, which is an inverted (reflected) image by definition. If the inverted image is worshiped as sacred instead of that which is casting the image, then much power is given to forces that oppose the Creator. Because symbols are finite, static and fixed representations, then whenever people take a symbolic approach to the Creator, they are paying attention to something that is the exact opposite of what He represents: an infinite, dynamic and transcendental power.

Figure 2.4 - Creation mirrors Creator

The mythical story of Lucifer, the angel that rebelled against God, is a good example of a creature that opposes its creator. The story has its origins in ancient mystical literature, but it was incorporated by monotheistic belief systems, mainly Christianity. Basically, the story says that Lucifer was the wisest, the most beautiful, and the most powerful angel in heaven. But Lucifer eventually reasoned about his apparent superiority and acquired the desire to become as great and reverenced as God, his Father. From that point on, Lucifer's prideful and selfish aspirations turned him away from God and led him to be cast out of heaven for disobedience, hence the famous archetype of the fallen angel.

Figure 2.5 - Fall of Lucifer

The story of Lucifer is practically the same plot found in Creation myths in which a primordial consciousness forgets about itself through self-contemplation. Suppose that this infinite consciousness (i.e., Consciousness) is initially unified with itself, yet it decides to imagine (externalize) itself to be able to know (explore) itself better. As a consequence, it gets momentarily caught in its own imagination; it falls asleep while a dream takes over its mind. In other words, there has been an enchantment brought about by Consciousness' own image of light. This event alone is responsible for an entire imaginary universe, an artificial design that Consciousness believes to be real but ultimately is not. It is also believed that a disaster occurs at the moment of self-contemplation, because Consciousness got disconnected from Its infinite mind resulting in dissociation and amnesia. The more Consciousness falls inside Its dream, the more fragmentation It suffers.

Lucifer represents the greatest error (sin) ever committed by Consciousness once in possession of free will. It is the primordial error that results in the first light of Creation, and that is why Lucifer is sometimes called the Angel of Light, the Morning Star. Whether Lucifer's act is evil / sinful is not important because the Creator is ultimately in charge of everything, including even that which sounds erroneous. That which falls like Lucifer falls for the highest good of All. The Creator is like a highly talented painter that is always attempting new moves with his painting brush to purposely create mistakes that turn out as beautiful in the end. In other words, failure is a primitive but necessary step for the advent of Creation, as schematized below.

divine perfection -> failure -> creation of the universe
Schematics 2.2

While Creation is the answer for "what is the Absolute?," the Creator is certainly the answer for "who is the Absolute?." That is, the Creator is the personification of everything that exists taken as a whole; He is Existence personified. This means that there is no beginning or end that applies to the Creator or His Creation. They both exist in the absolute present (i.e., the Now). However, people often assume time is linear and absolute; they assume that there was a time "before" the universe. Well, in reality there was never a divine act of creation at some point in time, because time itself also comes from this act. To propose a time before the universe is therefore just as absurd as proposing a time before time, and so there is no logical basis for us to prove or disprove that the universe began or that it will end. What we can do is observe the current / present universe and from this make projections backward or forward in time, which is a concept relative to perception after all.

The common scientific view is that the universe started with the event known as the Big-Bang.1 When it comes to the Big Bang theory, we have to come in terms with the idea of a singularity. The confusion lies in that it is not only energy that is infinitely condensed in a singularity, but also time itself. Therefore, one can say that the Big-Bang occurred an eternity ago as much as one can say that it occurred "billions" of years ago. But you do not learn much from making these statements. The point in time known as the singularity might as well be any point in time, or no point in time at all, because whenever we are talking about a singularity, we are dealing with a paradox. Also associated to a singularity is the idea of an event horizon: a boundary beyond which all possible events occur simultaneously even if their occurrences are contradictory to each other. In this case, it is true that the universe never really began because it has always existed "inside" a singularity, but it is also true that a singularity lies in the past and in the future of the universe.

Cosmos is the name given to the universe taken as a coherent whole. And what is an universe? An universe is Creation materialized, made into a system. The term universe refers to all the matter and energy that exists. Unlike Creation, an universe must have a definite beginning and a foreseeable end; it is momentaneous like a photograph of Creation, while Creation Itself is eternal. Creation is not confined to physical worlds and their associated physical theories. Now, considering that the universe is already the first and the last system subject to measurement, then anything before its beginning must be beyond any possibility of measurement. Therefore, if nothing can be detected before the universe, the only explanation for a "first cause" is that something literally came out of nothing. Is this a cop-out explanation? Maybe, but we will see that it is in the usage of the word nothing that we can find more out about the existential paradox that underlies all philosophical indagations about the Cosmos.

Since events before the Big Bang have no observational consequences, one may as well cut them out of the theory, and say that time began at the Big Bang. Events before the Big Bang, are simply not defined, because there is no way one could measure what happened at them. (Stephen Hawking) 2

Considering that everything in the universe is energy in one state or another, let us suppose that everything before the universe was also energy, but this time in a pure state. There was no space or time. There were no attributes, qualities or activities; there was only chaos. There was absolutely nothing, but nothing as something: an inconceivable state of existence unified with nonexistence instead of the mere is/is-not, exist/not-exist alternative. And it was precisely a form of division applied to that "nothing-as-something" that resulted in the creation of the universe. The drawing of a line on a blank canvas automatically creates two sides. We can also think of stillness becoming vibration. This is the basic creation myth. As for the cause of the primordial division, we can interpret it as a spontaneous desire that the Creator had to express Himself. After all, that is what creators do: they express themselves through their creations.

Since before time and space were, the Tao [the Absolute] is. It is beyond "is" and "is not". (Tao Te Ching) 3

Myths of Creation are romantics ways to explain a divine act of creation: The Creator creates simply by imagining Himself into being; it is like seeing His own image on the mirror of His mind. But with such creative imagination comes an illusion of separation, a certain distance between Creator and created. After all, for the Creator to be able to see His own image means that a line of division has to be introduced: the mirror's edge. The mirror also gets shattered into many pieces, each one containing a small reflection of Him. Each broken piece encases the Creator in full yet within the boundaries of an unique shape and size, which means that in some of them there is great distortion of His true image: the Creator is hardly recognizable.

Figure 2.6 - Creation by self-reflection

Rationality dictates that whatever exists must have a cause for its existence. Consequently, such rationale can lead us to a succession of questions trying to determine a never-ending chain of causality. This is what happens when we keep trying to justify phenomenon after phenomenon while failing to see that the only phenomenon that remains unchallenged and uncaused is that of Existence. In other words, Existence is the primordial and absolute cause, the cause that is its own cause. There is no further cause or purpose behind Existence. Any chain of cause and effect begins and ends with absolute concepts, all of which refer to some form of self-existent energy, that is, an energy whose existence does not depend upon anything.

Throughout the ages many philosophers have questioned the meaning of Existence. For example, one of philosophy's most perplexing questions is "why there is something instead of nothing?." To ask this question is to imply that there is a purpose to Existence that has nothing to do with Existence Itself. Whoever is asking this question is forgetting that Existence is already the highest purpose; that is, the purpose of Existence is Existence Itself. One can either accept Existence without flinching or one will keep trying to find "higher purpose" for who knows how long. Another point often missed has to do with Existence's paradoxical nature: both nonexistence (nothing) and existence (something) are two sides of the same Existence. Therefore, we can offer the following rebuttal to the previous question: if nothing, by definition, is lack of existence, then how could it exist? Because all that exists is Existence, in one state or another. Nonexistence is still a valid existential state just like nothing is still something.

Artificial Creation

The Artificial Creation (AC) is a virtual world that is analogous to a featureless image of the Creator like a silhouette or shadow. By definition, a shadow is a distorted image of the true shape of the object casting it, and it does not reflect the features (qualities) of that object. The Divine Creation (DC), in contrast, is a genuine and flawless depiction of the Creator because it reflects His attributes, characteristics, and most importantly, His intentions of how Creation should be. Both the divine and artificial versions of Creation are images of the Creator; they are imaginations produced by an infinite consciousness. The only fundamental difference between the two is that one is genuine (real) and the other is false (virtual).

Figure 2.7 - Two versions of Creation Bonus image

For example, if we consider that the Artificial and Divine Creations are like photographs of Creation, then the AC is the negative photographic film while the DC is the positive film. This is why these two versions of Creation are not absolute concepts themselves, because when we are considering a static (photographic) representation of Creation, we are invariably discarding Its dynamic and transcendental quality of absolute concept. In short, the AC and DC are not absolute versions of Creation, but rather relative ones.

Artificial Divine
limited unlimited
temporary eternal
flawed perfect

Table 2.1

In a virtual reality, everything is programmed and hence not actually real in the sense of a reality that feels natural. But then, how is it possible that the obvious physical surroundings composing one's reality are not real? Well, reality is a very subjective term. What is real for a person may very well be illusory for another, because reality is simply the baseline of that which feels more intense for someone, hence more "realistic." There is always a degree of illusion in any reality as well as a degree of realism in any illusion. Fundamentally, reality and illusion are equivalent concepts because the former implies in that which is manifested, which is always the outer appearance and never the spirit of who is casting (creating) the image. It is true then the saying that all images / looks can be deceiving, because nothing can embody (reflect) the spirit of Creation perfectly.

The reality of the Divine Creation is one replete with aspects (forms) that most approximate the perfection of the Creator, while the reality of the Artificial Creation follows the exact opposite direction. The Divine Creation is a clear and honest manifestation of the Creator, but still deceptive (illusory) to a very small degree. This is why Maya, a concept in Hinduism meaning "world of illusion," is a name sometimes attributed to Creation. The only thing that can be considered absolutely real is the spirit, because all substance lies in the spirit even though the spirit is formless and insubstantial by definition. Such is the paradoxical nature of that which lies behind the veil of illusion: in the case of Creation, the spirit is the Creator Himself.

Both versions of Creation can be interpreted from a technical perspective as well as from a philosophical one. Philosophically, it is much like Plato's Allegory of the Cave:4 there is a world of ideal forms and a world of shadows. The prisoners of the cave are inclined to believe that the shadows are the only reality, as opposed to the true reality outside the cave. But it is only in the ideal forms that knowledge about the essence of various things can be found. The shadows are mere instances of the ideal forms and often carry distortions that cannot be trusted. Plato also discusses the existence of filters obstructing the soul's ability to perceive ideal forms. In principle, the Divine Creation is a spiritual world of unending beauty, because everywhere you look there are imageries of infinity. But put on a perceptual filter and you begin to see limitation instead, which cuts infinity short and brings beauty to a superficial level of mere appearance (shadows), and thus the possibility of ugliness arises.

The Artificial and Divine Creations are primarily different mental locations and lastly different physical locations, in which case we may rightfully consider the existence of places, realities or even other universes throughout the Multiverse that must pertain to one (Divine) or another (Artificial). The AC and DC are actually two ideal scenarios, and at no point in our evolution should we assume that we have taken permanent residence in one or the other. A distinction between them is only visible when we still have filters occluding our perception of Reality. In the absence of filters, we no longer see the two versions of Creation as being distinct; we no longer take specific scenarios as being Heaven or Hell. Instead, the ideal is to train our spiritual senses to detect the singular pulse of Creation in all of its glory. The ideal is to realize how Creation is a divine artwork in which the ugly and the artificial is also beautiful and natural.

Figure 2.8 - Interlaced Creations

The AC is an universe ruled by time and space, hence dimensionality. It is not limited, however, by the values that time and space can assume as the individual variables they are. This means that the AC has not a spatial or temporal boundary, since time or space can vary from zero to infinity. The only limitation of the AC is the lack of creative power to be able to keep up with an infinite amount of time or space, and so eventually the same spatio-temporal configuration has to repeat over and over again like a broken music record. The AC is subject to stagnation, to limitation and repetition, and that is why it is artificial. All beings living inside it know that something is intrinsically wrong, something anomalous and unnerving. In the case of the DC, however, not only there are no limits in time and space but also no limits in creativity. After all, the DC is a direct manifestation of Creation in Its true form.

Figure 2.9 - Creative explosion

In the Model of Creation shown in the image below, the arrow represents how the Line keeps advancing toward the End while bypassing the Result, which is the maximum theoretical limit for any single direction of advancement. This means that, with respect to the AC, something can grow toward infinity or shrink toward zero, but such illusory extremes are never truly achieved. The Result is the only extreme that can be achieved, although that only happens in the realm of theory, because in practice the Line never stops for anything: time and space are forever recycling within the AC and forever renewing within the DC. It is just that when the Result is achieved, the doors of perception become open to infinite realities and possibilities; it is not that all realities have been already traversed and all possibilities already explored. It is just that the riddle of Existence has already been solved. As an example, consider the Result as being a final conclusion (theory) achieved after much study and intuition, whereas life, evolution, or whatever may be our interpretation of the process of the Line must go on advancing toward either infinity or zero -- you choose.

Figure 2.10 (2.1 expanded) - The Model of Creation

Let us assume a perspective from inside the AC. The primary consequence is that the Model of Creation suffers an inversion of principles: the End and the Origin exchange places. This exchange, however, has nothing to do with a mere horizontal flip of the Model, because what really transpires is that the extreme dualistic nature of the End takes over and becomes the fundamental characteristic / theme of the universe: duality instead of unity from a singularity. We can no longer see the Origin directly. Instead, we see the End in every direction we look; that is, we see either zero or infinity as a hard conceptual limit. Everything revolves around these two opposite extremes, with the Result occupying the exact middle point and thus being easily overlooked during our quest for extremes. The Divine Creation, which originally lies at the Origin, vanishes from sight to become like a distant and illusory oasis that is now only theoretically reachable through obsessive behavior rooted on zero or infinity.

Figure 2.11

The right side of Figure 2.11 is more complex: Let us represent Creation as a dashed circle and then "invert" this circle to produce the star pattern shown in the figure, which then represents how Creation looks like from the inside. Of course, there is no such thing as an inverted circle unless we take the idea of infinite discontinuity into consideration: There are four curves, one for each quadrant, forming the star-like graph of the inverted circle. This graph has four infinite discontinuities, which means that each pair of adjacent curves have to meet at infinity. Therefore, we can never be sure whether we are looking at a single figure or at four disconnected curves. If that shape is a seamless figure, then we are still looking at a full circle, but an "inverted" one.

As we can see in the inverted Model of Creation, zero is in the place originally occupied by the singularity of the Origin. A singularity is what the Origin really is, and the main reason why the Origin disappears from the Model once an inversion occurs is because all characteristics of the DC seem to vanish; that is, they are no longer perceived directly or they are no longer perceived at all; they become invisible and fleeting to ordinary perception and thus tend to be ignored ideologically. In other words, the main consequence for a perspective inside the AC is that it lacks any signs of the DC -- it can be an horrific view. Fortunately, the AC is not only finite and temporary, but also fundamentally flawed / imperfect, which is the reason why the DC cannot be shunned completely. Something of a divine and spiritual nature always has to bleed in through the crack of the AC, which can also serve as a hatch for anyone willing to escape to the DC, although in practice they would only be escaping to a Model instance that is less artificial and more divine. (Refer to Figure 2.2).

Figure 2.12

Zero and infinity are the ideological / conceptual extremes of the universe, which is by definition the largest system, that is, the one that includes all the others. The universe of the AC is populated with extreme forces that influence individuals to seek zero or infinity, never both extremes simultaneously. It is an universe torn between two opposing forces exerted by two magnetic poles: one at infinity and the other nowhere to be found. The only way for these forces to coexist without doing it simultaneously is through their continuous alternation (i.e., each one has its turn to exert effect). Alternation is the basis of vibration, since for something to vibrate it has to have two poles between which to oscillate. Therefore, we conclude that the universe of the AC is characterized by polarity.

Figure 2.13 - Polarity

The AC is a system of digital information, an universal matrix. Binary is the basis for the AC's logical matrix / structure: everything in it can be reduced to true or false, yes or no, existent or non-existent. Physical reality is only the terminal station, the actual manifestation, of the underlying "binary code." Of course that, in practice, one is not going to explicitly see the world in binary unless they have means to digitalize in real-time all the many layers of analog (continuous) signals coming from Nature. Anyway, all of this is just the nature of the AC's reality, not the nature of Creation (i.e., Reality with capital R). No wonder that spiritual knowledge transcends what the AC represents, because it tends to be paradoxical and hence not based on division / duality of concepts.

________________________
1 The Big Bang is a cosmological theory and also a popular idea / scenario regarding the origin of the universe in the past when it existed as a point of infinite density known as the singularity. Following this state, the universe expanded inside a conceptual (mathematical) space to become what it is today. As a scientific theory, the Big Bang is born from cosmological analysis that lead scientists to believe that the universe, hence cosmological time, must have a beginning at some point in absolute time. Now, at the same time that scientists agree that time should not have a meaning independent of the universe, the concept of absolute time is fundamental to scientific determinism. Proponents of the Big Bang theory who like to interpret it as fact are not always aware of this paradox regarding time. ^

4 The Allegory of the Cave, also commonly known as Myth of the Cave, is an allegory used by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic. According to Plato, we are supposed to imagine prisoners chained deep inside a cave. The prisoners have been there all their lives with their necks chained so that they are always facing a blank wall. They watch shadows on the wall produced by things and people moving past the mouth of the cave, and they listen to echoes of distant sounds. This parable tries to illustrate that the shadows are mere reflections of a true reality outside the cave, but the prisoners are inclined to take the shadows as constituting reality instead. Plato then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not constitutive of reality at all, since he can perceive the true form of reality outside the cave rather than the mere shadows watched by the prisoners. ^

2.2 Intentions of Creation

Suppose that every conceivable thing, not mattering if concrete, abstract or imaginary, is derived / created from a very basic and fundamental knowledge that we can interpret as being constituted of a few intentions of cosmic creation. Suppose that this knowledge is about everything, not just about a few things, and once we are in contact with it we can learn about the nature of reality and consciousness, the physical and spiritual laws of the Universe, and the great paradox of Existence.

To be in possession of the most powerful knowledge means that you can become a genius in a very short amount of time. Does this sound like megalomania? Not quite when you understand that everyone is already omniscient and genius-like at the core of what they are spiritually, but not everyone has come to mind what they already know intuitively; they still have not brought this knowledge to the surface of their conscious awareness and related it to words and concepts. Well, this is a gap in linguistic and cognitive understanding of the cosmos that the Thirteen Intentions of Creation come to fill with excellence.

Figure 2.14

Crudely speaking, the Thirteen Intentions are Creation -- no more, no less. They already constitute the simplest and most rational way to explain Creation. They already constitute the last level of intellectual abstraction that we can have about Creation. They can be interpreted as energies, principles, meanings, archetypes, levels / steps, tones, commands or laws -- you name it. However, for a better understanding let us imagine a creator god who has a finite number of intentions regarding how his creation should work / operate / behave. Every creation has a corresponding creator, and thus the will (intentions) of the creator can be found in all aspects and details of his creation. This is precisely the case when it comes to how the Thirteen Intentions, the Creator and Creation as we know It correlate with each other. We will see many examples in this and further chapters of how the nature of reality is intuitively defined (programmed) through these Intentions.

The premise of this book is to offer a logical explanation for why the Thirteen Intentions are central to everything. We should always remember, however, that it is not possible to completely justify the existence of something that happens to be the cause of everything. There is no real reason for something that is self-explanatory, although we can still attempt to study the obvious: we can still come up with all sorts of pseudo-reasons to help us understand (accept) the obvious. The Truth is simple, but unfortunately It seems chaotic for the untrained mind. Thus, an entire theory based on the Thirteen Intentions is necessary to prove their importance. Fortunately, we can rest assured that there is nothing better than these Intentions in terms of a theoretical knowledge of Creation. Better than a theory of the Truth, only direct experience of It.

The Thirteen Intentions are initially abstract energies and thus cannot be put into words easily. However, much like a psychic can use words to describe invisible energies sensed by him, we can find concrete meanings that most approximate how each Intention feels like. There is no real logic behind this process, because any logical analysis can only come after the Intentions have been translated from a purely sensational domain to an objective one. The interpretation brought forward by this book is a list of directives of Creation that were carefully chosen for each Intention. All that we need to know for an unified theory of Creation is right here on this list. No grand unified theory of everything is worth its name if it does not recognize the existence of these directives.

Besides directives, each Intention is associated to certain qualities, concepts and techniques. To see a complete description of each Intention go to Appendix 1. You might as well use Appendix 1 as a reference for the remainder of this book. Also, interspersed within the text there are quick references to the Intentions when one of their directives, qualities or concepts is mentioned. These references are of the form "IC #X" inside parentheses, where "X" is an Intention number. They will provide you with insights that otherwise would require lengthy explanations.

What really makes the Thirteen Intentions special is that they can be applied on themselves. All knowledge about them can be derived from themselves, and so we can use a particular Intention to prove or clarify aspects of others and/or the whole set. Take this as proof that the Intentions have universal validity, because other systems of knowledge cannot prove anything about themselves, and trying to do so will often reveal loopholes in their assumptions about the universe. But when it comes to the Thirteen Intentions, they are the best assumption we can make. Every incursion in their knowledge will impart you with insightful thoughts. Even more, there is no situation in which the Intentions cannot be applied successfully: they are a tool whose potential only depends on the imagination of its user. They are especially useful when our last chance is to start from scratch and build upon it until reaching the desired level of abstraction. In this case, the Thirteen Intentions are just as important as building blocks as they are as tools.

As universal laws

The Thirteen Intentions can be interpreted as an universal decree formed by thirteen laws or commandments. This possibility comes from the fact that there is no other set of principles more fundamental to Creation. Not all Intentions, however, can be said to behave as laws, and so apprehending them as such does not work very well. But some Intentions coincide with certain universal laws that are often mentioned in spiritual teachings. One example is Intention #6, which corresponds to the Law of Balance: every one factor will be and must be balanced by another equivalent factor. You can find more information on how each Intention may or may not be interpreted as a Creational law in Appendix 1. Only remember that, in some cases, it is better to think about them strictly as intentions and nothing more.

Why exactly 13 Intentions?

From 1.5 - Principles we have seen how zero and infinity cannot provide us with a definitive answer when it comes to universal truth, and so we decided that maybe there is a fixed and finite number of universal principles that together compose this Truth. Indeed, discovering the Thirteen Intentions is just a matter of finding principle after principle until you are in possession of a number of them that finally covers / explains everything you could possibly want to know. Being all of them interconnected, one Intention leads to the discovery of another very easily. Thus when we have already grasped a few Intentions, it does not take long until we become aware of the first 12. The only exception to this rule is Intention #13, because this one can only be found by pure intuition, that is, by one of those "a-ha!" moments.

But why 13? Well, if this number was any higher, it would not be possible for us to settle with it and not suffer from a feeling of incompleteness. This is exactly what happens when we are aware of less than 13 Intentions: the craving for truth, certainty, and closure does not subsides. The truth is that there is not a real cause for 13 being the right quantity. Of course that from a religious perspective we might just accept that 13 is a choice made by the Creator for whatever reason, but for those who need more evidence there is a sheer amount of it pointing to this exact number of steps for the cosmology of Creation. In other words, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence supporting 13 as being the right number, and presenting as much of it as possible is one of the goals of this book. In Chapter 3, for example, we will see how the nature of reality is implemented by the Thirteen Intentions.

Should you just believe that there are 13 Intentions of Creation? Of course not, because first you have to prove this knowledge to yourself. Believing is not knowing. As it is the case with any field of knowledge, the researcher eventually comes to a point where he no longer has to believe the truth that now lies right in front of his face. You must be rooted in a state of knowing, not based entirely upon belief. People believe that they have to believe and so they forget about the importance of acquiring genuine (first-hand) knowledge and experience. A belief is a form of self-deception -- you either know something or you don't, so why fool yourself? After all, if you have to resort to belief, you have already been defeated in your quest for knowledge. But do not worry: there is nothing better than beginning this quest knowing that all you know is that you do not know anything, because that means you are ready to start absorbing only the essential.

Why the name Intention? Figure 2.15 - 12 around 1

All Intentions are different aspects / characteristics of the great singularity that is Creation, particularly Intention #13 which is the singularity (IC #1) manifest (IC #3), that is, the true face of the singularity revealed. In the figure above we can see Intention #13 at the center and other Intentions as vortexes through which the center can be approached. When something is caught inside a vortex, it is dragged toward the core, the innermost extreme of the vortex. As it gets closer to the core, the tension (pressure) tends to infinity. Now, from the word innermost we have the prefix in, and so we get the word intension by joining in with tension. Surely, intension is not the same as intention, but the two words share the same etymological root. While intension has to do with inner tension, intention has to do with inward focus / attention.

When we assume a certain intention we are already directing energy to create something. Thus, by definition, all intentions are of creation. An intention is a thought form of creation and manifestation. There is nothing more powerful than focused, conscious intent, as long as the accompanying tension can be dealt with. That is because any intention brought to our awareness will also bring some level of tension to us due to the inevitable responsibility attached to the act of creating something. In other words, we must have the courage to create and then assume the consequences that will arise from our creation. The more powerful the intent the greater the intensity of our feelings, and also the responsibility, toward what we want to create.

Any possible intention is of creation, but there is only a few that are more fundamental, more direct in their approach to the singularity of Creation. With this in mind, we can say that the Thirteen Intentions are the most direct ways to engage what you want to create. They allow you to "cut through the bullshit" so to speak. For example, if your intent about something is fairly weak, knowledge of the Intentions can assist you in formalizing it, amplifying it, and finally leading it to principiate as action. The bulk of the work lies in making the right intent; after that, the rest is easy. Indeed, each Intention of Creation functions as a mental state, a psychoactive frequency, associated to one of 13 different modes (principles) of action that involve the creation of something, anything.

Which Intention is more important?

None in reality. Each Intention has unique properties that are essential to the whole set. All Intentions are uniquely and equally important. However, according to the directive Representation (IC #1) there must be one Intention that represents all the others: a leader. Primarily, a leader is ellected because of his skills to represent the group; he is not necessarily "better" than the other members. Also, a leader is usually an authority (IC #1) that is occupying the highest (IC #8) place. Well, if we are in need of one Intention to represent the others, and one that occupies the highest place in the numeric sequence, then it can only be Intention #13.

There is no doubt that Intention #13 is the representative of all Intentions, but since Representation and Unification are both directives of Intention #1, then we can also say that Intention #13 is the unification of the first 12 Intentions. In other words, Intention #13 is not only an individual element with independent meaning but also single-handedly represents the entirety of the first 12 Intentions. Intention #13 is the synthesis of the first 12. Therefore, when we need to address / mention something about all Intentions taken as one, we can very well do this by using Intention #13 alone.

As computer commands

The Thirteen Intentions can be interpreted as simple command statements from a low-level programming language used to write the program that renders Creation as a Virtual Reality (VR). We have already seen that the Artificial Creation (AC) is pretty much like a VR when compared to the Divine Creation. But before we explore this idea any further, we need to first define what a program is: In computer science, a program is a set of instructions in sequence for the computer to execute. In essence, a program is a function from input states to output states, which means that specific output data will be produced from given input data. The output of a computer program is predictable by definition. Furthermore, all program instructions must be coded in the machine language native to the target computer that is going to execute them, and irrespective of the methods of codification, all machine language is simply binary code.

Of course that the program of Creation is not really a computer program, but a consciousness program. The output of this program is the AC, which is the sum of all virtual realities. A VR is an artificial (false) reality contrasting with a natural (true) reality. By definition, VRs cannot have an independent existence from a natural reality; after all, they are created inside one. For instance, VRs that are based on real-world technology are all created with computers and rely on them for data storage and processing. A technological VR does not differ from a real one except for what creates it: the AC is a product of consciousness instead of technology. That is, Consciousness is a metaphysical supercomputer with infinite processing power that runs the program of Creation, which in turn outputs the AC and all physical reality contained therein. The Creator must be then the master programmer, that is, the one who implements the Program.

The AC is programmed and hence machine-like; like any machine it cannot function without an external power source. To unplug consciousness from the AC is equivalent to unplug the power cord from a machine. Another analogy has to do with how a computer program needs processing power from the computer to run. That is, without the infusion of spiritual (creative) energy that consciousness provides, the AC would vanish forever, although it could still exist (run) for a few more cycles powered only by residual energy. The bottom line is that the AC only exists through the consciousness of each being that is willing to participate in one or more scenarios / realities of the virtual world. Therefore, in a sense each being is helping to create the realities of the AC.

In the same manner that a VR has an underlying programming, the AC is completely programmatic in all of its 12 levels. (See Figure 2.10.) The programming is not always obvious to those immersed in the computer simulation, and they should remain forever ignorant if it was not for a miracle that prompts them to recognize the artificial aspects, the anomalies, of their reality. What miracle would that be? Well, it is Consciousness that creates the reality / world of the AC and thus holds the last card when it comes to maintaining it or discarding it. Since individual consciousness is linked to universal consciousness, conscious individuals already have access to the power needed to evolve beyond, to transcend, any kind of reality. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the miraculous power of Intention #13.

In other words, a being endowed with consciousness has unbounded potential as it can access (channel) the power of Intention #13 at will. This is because consciousness (IC #12) as the ordinary concept is directly linked to the absolute concept of identical name, which corresponds to Intention #13. Therefore, the individual who embodies Consciousness already has all the power within himself to override programming and thus transcend the virtual world in order to access realities that better reflect his true identity as an embodiment of the Creator living inside His own Creation. For example, these realities will not be of programming and limitation like the ones of the AC, but instead they will be of infinite creative potential like the ones of the Divine Creation.

Now, at the same time that Consciousness is running the program of Creation, It is also being programmed by it up to a certain point. In this context, the Intentions are instructions to control (program) Consciousness while at the level of individuation (i.e., as an individual being). Thus, during the course of the Program, Consciousness has to follow a set of rules that It created for Itself. This happens because self-regulation is the only way that Consciousness has to force Itself to evolve. It is important to understand that it does not matter how much satisfied anyone can be with their spiritual progress, because according to Intention #13 there is never enough progress. There is only a need for eternal revolution, which is the same as evolution happening on top of evolution, or multidimensional evolution. At the exact moment that one believes that they have reached the end of the line, an entirely new horizon of possibilities appears. There is always more room for growth and learning beyond anyone's wildest dreams.

Let us write a pseudocode for the program of Creation. We already know that each Intention is a computational step in the Program, and so all we have to do is analyze the directives of each Intention and figure out what functions they perform over Consciousness. For that we can make use of specific keywords. See the table below.

Command Keyword Description
01 BEGIN Consciousness is back to the beginning (IC #1) as an immanifest singularity; It is in a blank / void state, hence ready to be filled with new information, knowledge and experience.
02 DIVIDE Consciousness becomes individuated and hence separate (IC #2) from Its original self to a certain extent; It forgets about Its true identity, which is divine, and assumes a false and limited identity.
03 ACTIVATE Consciouness becomes electrical (IC #3) impulse(s). This stage is the basis of matter formation.
04 MATERIALIZE Consciousness becomes body (IC #4); It assumes material form, hence the actual formation of matter.
05 LIVE Consciousness becomes life (IC #5), vital energy; It moves around instinctively to explore and experiment.
06 EVALUATE Consciousness becomes mind (IC #6); It becomes a variable whose value is prone to fall and rise. This is the way that Consciousness learns: through ups and downs, trial and error.
07 ADD Consciousness as a variable reaches a stable value (level), an equilibrium, that from now on can only increase (sum - IC #7). As mind, Consciousness becomes attuned (IC #7) to Creation (IC #13) and thus may expand (open) all the way to embody It once more.
08 MULTIPLY Consciousness as a variable grows (IC #8) exponentially toward infinity. Experiences grow in number and become much more intense.
09 SUBTRACT Consciousness becomes spirit (IC #9), pure energy. All non-essential experiences are discarded (subtracted) from Its being. All attachments are released.
10 INTEGRATE Consciousness becomes complete (IC #10) in the sense that It has already learned everything It wished to learn. All essential experiences have been integrated into Its being. Also, Consciousness has expanded to encompass all of Creation.
11 PREPARE Consciousness becomes incomplete (IC #11) in the sense that It realizes that, although It has achieved unification with everything (IC #10), It is not unified with Itself (IC #13). This in turn triggers Consciousness to remember Its true identity, that is, to remember Itself.
12 END Consciousness finally (IC #12) returns to Its original self; It is now complete in Itself. Symbolically speaking, this is when all acquired / learned experiences have been communicated to the Source (IC #13).
Table 2.2 - Program of Creation

We basically have a subroutine composed of 12 steps / commands. Is there a 13th? Certainly, but it lies in another scope of execution, yet we can consider it as coming right after the execution of the subroutine. Which name is given to the 13th command will depend on how we interpret the 12th, because the latter can cause termination either of the Program or of the subroutine. If the Program stops, then we must assume that its main body (routine) is the subroutine already; that is, the subroutine is the Program. This means that the subroutine is executed only once before the Program ends. However, the Program may be started again, in which case the 13th command is appropriately named RESTART. Now, if only the subroutine stops, then we must assume that the Program runs forever (IC #13) and causes the infinite reiteration (loop) of the set of 12 instructions. In this case, the main routine of the Program contains only the command CONTINUE (IC #13), which causes the subroutine to be called (started) repeatedly.

Figure 2.16

Every time that the Program's subroutine gets executed, the instruction set based on the 12 Intentions is the same. In other words, the implementation of the Program does not change; what changes is the input data given to the subroutine, namely the subprogram of Creation. Consciousness Itself is the variable passed as an input parameter to the subroutine. The input data is used in calculations until an output value is produced (returned) at the end of the execution: it is Consciousness again, but this time in a much higher level / state, relatively speaking.

What can be said about the 13th command is that it represents how Consciousness is always seeking to break the monotony and learn something new. This is known as the quest of the Spirit (IC #13), and it is the same moving force that breaks a cycle, stops a program, only to start (IC #1) a new one. The next step in evolution for Consciousness is always to start anew, not necessarily "again." Intention #13 is about renovation, not repetition. It is only within the scope of the program of Creation, and of the Artificial Creation by equivalence, that repetition of patterns tends to be the rule and not the exception.

As you can see, to equate Creation with a computer simulation may seem counterintuitive at first, but it is an approach that provides tremendous psychological and spiritual insight. In this vein, the program of Creation is the solution to the problem of how Consciousness can move (expand) beyond Itself while still remaining Itself. The program of Creation is the actual implementation of a miraculous (IC #13) process that allows One to move beyond the impossible. The Program must be followed, but at the same time it must be transcended.

The Game

As explained in Section 2.1, the AC is all about polarity, and where there is polarity there is antagonism of two poles, and so there is potential for challenges and competition -- a game scenario. Indeed, the AC is very much like a game for those experiencing it first hand. Games are feedback control systems where players perform actions to get desired outcomes in an attempt to compete with other players. Playing games is important for the acquisition of intense experiences, but often players will be so caught up in winning against others that they forget the fact that no game has a clear, eternal winner except for the game creator, the programmer. The game programmer exists beyond all rules and parameters that have been established according to the programmed logic of the game. In the case of Creation seen as a VR game, we already know that the role of the programmer belongs to the Creator, and to Consciousness too, although Creator is more accurate in this context.

Once inside the virtual world of a game, new players will have the impression that they are participating in an exciting new adventure with all sorts of scenarios appearing randomly before them. However, the programmer knows that the output generated by his program is not random at all, but instead it happens according to carefully chosen instructions. The programmer is completely aware of how his program works just as a game designer knows all possible outcomes of his game. Therefore, it is just natural that a player devoid of the same kind of technical knowledge will be in awe of the apparent ingeniousness and complexity of the game for a while. For the programmer, however, all is very deterministic and simple.

Let us call the program of Creation, now identified as a game, as the Game. Everybody wants to play this Game because, frankly, it is the only game in town: there is no better option to speed up one's spiritual development. Players of the Game are self-conscious units; they are beings that represent a systemic anomaly within the Game due to their non-deterministic / spontaneous behavior based on free-will (IC #13). It is by design that their spontaneous behavior will conflict with the deterministic nature of the artificial world they are participating in. The core theme of the Game is free will vs. determinism -- this is the ultimate challenge for any being accepting the role of the player, because it is something that touches very deeply forcing evolution on a spiritual level.

Of course that in the end it is not really a matter of conflict when it comes to playing the Game, because it is the players themselves who designed the Game and agreed to play it for the purpose of acquiring intense bits of experience. See, all players (beings) by definition share the consciousness phenomenon; that is, all players are individual expressions of an universal consciousness that is willing (IC #13) to play the Game. Whether players are conscious of this fact or not, there is never any unwanted challenge presented to them. One simply cannot exist inside the Game if one is not willing to play it to some degree. But what about winning? Well, the Game exists primarily to be won on a personal level: as one comes to understand all of what has been said here and much more, a process of transcendence (IC #13) takes place that will ultimately allow one to exit (IC #12) the Game, thereby winning it.

The Game is fun while it lasts, but it must be seen to its ending. This happens precisely when all players, all strands of consciousness, all inputs of creativity, have left the Game. As a player progresses into the many levels / stages of the Game, he comes to understand its rules and mechanics better. During his journey he collects little clues embedded in the fabric of reality that reveal how unnatural, fixed and repetitive the AC is. What was once fun can begin to feel boring, because the player is beginning to see repeating patterns -- time to look for a new game.

The goal of the Game is evolution of consciousness up to a certain threshold, and this is true both on an individual and collective basis: there is a score that every player must achieve by himself at the same time that there is an overall team score. Good for a player if he does not need to depend only on his team to score. Anyway, with achievement of its goals, the Game can be declared to be over, although technically it is only an instance of the Game that will end. Finally, nothing can stop Consciousness from wishing to start a new game that will present an entirely new set of experiences.

2.3 Numerological analysis

The concept of number is born when we seek to divide the energy continuum of the universe for purposes of rationalization. Breaking the continuum in parts makes it easier for us to reason about the universe. We attribute symbols to different aspects of the continuum to enumerate them and reinforce the notion that one aspect is completely separate from the other. Still, any separation is nothing more than illusion caused by limited (IC #2) perception of the universe. Perception is characterized by a process of discretization that breaks the continuum in parts, and this happens on a sensorial level as well as a cognitive one. The continuum, of course, remains undifferentiated: there are no parts that are not also the whole. Every part is just the whole "dressed" differently; every part is an aspect of the whole. Ultimately, there is only the Whole (IC #13), which means that all parts are reflections of Infinity (IC #13).

Figure 2.# - Number line

If we imagine the universal continuum as a line of infinite extension that includes an infinite number of smaller lines (segments), then a number is what symbolizes the size difference between one segment and the other. But we are dealing with a continuum, an ultimately indivisible extent, and so it does not matter how many times we divide it into smaller pieces because we can never determine the exact (precise) extension of a line segment. All numbers on this line must be then discrete approximations for the creation of an abstract metric for the nature of reality, because all in all there are no real divisions on that line; there are no exact extensions in that line. If we do not know where one line segment ends and the other begins, then we might as well consider all segments as being the same infinite line: For example, if we do not know where 2 ends and 3 begins, then 2 and 3 might as well be the same number (i.e., 2 = 3), and if we do not know where 3 ends and 4 begins, then 2 might as well be 4. We can do this until we equate 2 with 8676.78 if we wish, but ultimately all numbers are infinite because all segments equate to the infinite line. In other words, there is only one indivisible line with infinite extension -- anything else is an illusion.

In general, people only associate quantitative meaning to numbers. Scientifically speaking, there should be nothing special about numbers themselves, because they are mere abstract concepts used to evaluate reality. But what is reality after all? First of all, in the real (concrete) world there is no place for abstract entities, and so numbers are not actually real; they are only real in the sense that they are encountered as quantities in the realm of experience. But there is a deeper reality surrounding numbers: Consider that the real world is one of sensations before it is anything else. We do not see an object; we feel an object. We do not count a number; we feel a number. Feelings are the basis of awareness / perception. Therefore, the key to understand how numbers can be meaningful beyond their ordinary quantitative meaning lies in the study of how numbers as archetypes can evoke certain feelings in us. That is, we can identify ourselves with numbers on many levels such as personal, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and mental.

Numbers reveal a deep significance that is independent from how symbolic they can be only as the numerals they are. For example, the Greek philosopher Plato postulated a higher dimension of existence, a perfect world populated with ideal forms (i.e., spiritual objects) that exist independently from the realm of sensible experience where only their shadows can be appreciated. Well, in the same way that in mathematics everything can be translated into numbers, everything in Nature can be reduced to essential qualities, also known as archetypes. Unlike Platonic forms, an archetype takes an outer / shadow form and it still presents itself as an inner / ideal form, and so an archetype is a paradox that can actually exist in the real world. Numbers illustrate this concept beautifully, because they are both logical / mathematical objects as well as spiritual objects. Numbers are archetypal in the strictest sense, expressing the infinite in the finite: we have seen previously how numbers are individual ways to express Infinity, and yet they appear as finite discontinuities.

You begin to see numbers as having special significance when you begin to see the deep connections that they have to the natural world. Reality (IC #13) has the need to manifest Itself (emerge) out of an energy continuum, of infinite dimension, and we have seen in Figure 2.# that the first pattern that emerges is the abstract metric of numbers. (Note: one possible etymological definition for archetype is "original pattern.") Numbers are "the extension and energy of the spermatic reasons contained in the monad [the One - IC #13]."1 That is, if the Universal Mind (Consciousness) reasons about Iself, then It is automatically breaking Itself down, numerically, in order to experience Itself objectively. Therefore, one option is to take numbers literally, and the other is to take them symbolically as descriptions of ideas (i.e., lines of thought) that the Universal Mind has about Itself. In the latter, each idea corresponds to a number, and so numbers function as the Universal language / code describing and encoding every aspect of Creation, every Conscious experience.

Ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras and his followers believed numbers to be the language of the universe, specially the natural (counting) numbers: {1,2,3,4,...}. The Pythagoreans' motto was "All is Number." Indeed, the natural numbers in sequence are literally describing the structural order embedded in the universal continuum; therefore, numbers reflect and echo the nature of reality. That is why mathematics, the science of numbers, is an exemplar science that shows us the rationality present in the order of the universe. Mathematics greatly expands the number language by adding many new symbols and ways to organize and relate numbers to each other. Mathematics also defines other categories of number (e.g., rational, irrational, real, complex) that are less intuitive, less natural. Still, all mathematics is constructed around the logical theory of natural numbers and its basic arithmetic operations.

Numerology is the field that studies the occult and qualitative meaning of numbers. While mathematics sees numbers only as effective means to an end, numerology sees numbers as an end unto themselves -- numbers are everything except meaningless. Numerology is actually a spiritual science that rescues the philosophy of numbers, and for that reason it serves as a link between philosophy and science, since numbers are the language of science. We learn through numerology that many ancient cultures understood the spiritual power and the cosmic significance of numbers and based important aspects of their culture on them. They had a deep affinity for numbers in themselves,2 and all of this when they knew little or nothing about the myriad of ways that numbers can be manipulated through mathematics. In short, history shows us that numbers are just as useful for solving philosophical problems as they are for solving mathematical problems. The Pythagoreans, for example, evolved their philosophy from the science of numbers.

Numerological arithmetic

The whole idea of numerological analysis is finding the numerological meaning of integral numbers (integers). In the case of the decimal system, which uses the digits 0 to 9, the set of basic meanings are those of the single-digit numbers 1 to 9 excluding zero whose meaning is simply "lack of meaning." But If a number has more than one digit, its meaning is seen as a composition, combination of the meanings of numbers 1 to 9. Thus, When we want to find the composite meaning of a number, we must first break the number down and analyse each digit separately, as for example: 13 = 1 + 3 ; 6782 = 6 + 7 + 8 + 2.

Numerically speaking, zero is officialy introduced with Intention #10, but, as you can see, it comes attached to number 1. This is because the meaning of zero is that of a paradox (IC #10). Although zero is considered an ideal from the perspective of Intention #9, it eventually reveals itself as being a paradox, an absurd. It is possible to go as close to zero as possible in reality, but zero taken as a limit is an absurd idea, and also the reason why Intention #9 leads to #10. Zero is always a relative concept, and only absolute concepts can operate as Intentions of Creation. At most, zero is an integral part of the paradoxical Intention #10, which represents a dynamic whole that merges opposite extremes.

Naturally, the meanings of numbers 1 to 13 come directly from their respective Intentions of Creation, and so we do not need to focus on these numbers for now since we already know what each Intention means. Our goal lies in numbers 14 up to infinity that do not have Intentions associated to them. their meanings come from different combinations of the first nine Intentions, forming composite meanings. See the examples below.

27 -> 2 + 7 -> a limited (IC #2) vibration (IC #7)                              
31 -> 3 + 1 -> a manifested (IC #3) singularity (#1)

564 -> 5 + 6 + 4 -> an equilibrated (IC #6) material (IC #4) energy (IC #5)

But the most important practice in Numerology is to reduce numbers with more than one digit to the sum of its digits and continue until a single-digit number is reached. This process of simplification is also known as pythagoerean math or numerological arithmetic, and it is an attempt to find the root/elementary/basic (IC #1) meaning behind the composite meaning of a number.

10 -> 1   20 -> 2   30 -> 3   40 -> 4   
11 -> 2   21 -> 3   31 -> 4   41 -> 5   
12 -> 3   22 -> 4   32 -> 5   42 -> 6   
13 -> 4   23 -> 5   33 -> 6   43 -> 7   
14 -> 5   24 -> 6   34 -> 7   44 -> 8   
15 -> 6   25 -> 7   35 -> 8   45 -> 9   
16 -> 7   26 -> 8   36 -> 9   46 -> 1   
17 -> 8   27 -> 9   37 -> 1   47 -> 2   
18 -> 9   28 -> 1   38 -> 2   48 -> 3   
19 -> 1   29 -> 2   39 -> 3   49 -> 4   
Schematics 2.# - Digital rooting

The purpose for this process is simply a matter of convenience if one wants to get down to what the composite meaning of a number adds up to (results) in simple terms. It's like reaching a conclusion, a summation for what is the outcome of the combination of two or more number meanings. From one side it is an unified meaning that sums up pretty well, on the other hand it wastes important details only found on the composite meaning. Therefore, In any way it does subsitute the composite meaning. A few examples are included below.

14 -> 1 + 4 = 5 -> an ideal (IC #1) structure (IC #4) results in robustness                                    
27 -> 2 + 7 = 9 -> challenging (IC #2) vibrations (IC #7) are certainly found in meditation (IC #9)            
31 -> 3 + 1 = 4 -> a manifested (IC #3) individual (#1) thing is obviously an object (IC #4)                   
465 -> 4 + 6 + 5 = 15 -> 6 -> a variating (IC #6) potential (IC #5) object (IC #4) leads to equilibrium (IC #6)
Schematics 2.#

There is nothing magical about this process alone because it even depends on which numeral system is adopted. If we were using the hexadecimal system, which uses sixteen symbols, we would have fifteen symbols corresponding to fifteen basic meanings, and all multi-digit hexadecimal numbers could have their composite meanings reduced to one of these fifteen basic meanings. Of course, all numerological meanings are ultimately borrowed from the Thirteen Intentions, and fifteen basic meanings would extrapolate the number of meanings that are really basic and fundamental with respect to Creation. we would be mistakenly attribtuing a fundamental status to the nomerological meaning of the fourteenth and fifteen symbols of the hexadecimal system.

Numbers with repeating digits introduce the notion of multiplication (IC #8) in our analysis. at first there is only one single-digit meaning contained in the number, but multiplied one, two or more times. Multiplifiation is the same as amplifying/reinforcing the single-digit meaning of that number by an arrbitrary number of times, but this reinforcement itself has meaning, because it happens through another number. against through or by in the same way when we say (one number by another).

44 -> 4 x 2 = 8 -> an object (IC #4) reinforced by separation (IC #2)                  
666 -> 6 x 3 = 18 = 1 + 8 = 9 -> equilibrium (IC #6) reinforced by manifestation (IC #3)
Schematics 2.#

More examples, but this time with no repeating digits:

3 x 4 = 12 -> reality (IC #3) happening through form (IC #4) equals consciousness (IC #12)
Schematics 2.#

For numbers containing the digit zero, we do not have a combination of intentions anymore, but just one intention at a higher order (IC #8). a highe rorder means the same energy is at a higher level, being more intense and more powerful. the more zeros you add, the higher it is. Because Intensification is a directive of Intention #10, then any Intention or combination of Intentions can be multiplied (IC #8) by Intention #10, that reuslts in the same energy at a higher level at which it is felt more intensily . See the following examples:

30 = 3 x 10 -> manifestation (IC #3) at a higher order                                    
350 = 35 x 10 -> (3 + 5) x 10 -> electric (IC #3) energy (IC #5) at a higher order        
50000 = 5 x 10^3 -> an explosion (IC #5) whose power is at the order of ten thousand units
Schematics 2.#

FInally, For numbers 10, 11, 12 and 13, and their corresponding Intentions of Creation, we can still analyse them numerogilically, yet there is no need because we already know their meaning as Intentions of Creation. Their meanings as Intentions of Creation andas numbers are two separate things, but they stil coincide with each other, as shown below.

Number Description
10 A representant (IC #1) of higher order, such as a deity, is necessarily divine (IC #10).
A singularity (IC #1) of higher order is even more dense (IC #10).
11 Motivation (IC #1) means that you are following your destiny (IC #11).
Two singularities (IC #1) can only be infinitesimally next (Proximation - IC #11) to each other due to the infinite gravitational force around them.
12 The separation (IC #2) of a romantic couple can still be ideal (IC #1) if there is still communication (IC #12).
13 An ideal (IC #1) creation (IC #3) is one that lasts for all eternity (IC #13).
The best (IC #1) celebrity (public [consensus reality - IC #3] image [IC #3]) is the one that is continuously renewing (IC #13) his/her image.

2.4 Love

We are not going to talk about Love as a mere feeling or emotion; on the contrary, we are going to ascribe cosmic (universal) significance to It in the same manner that we did with the Thirteen Intentions: Love is the primary, the highest and the most fundamental energy in the universe. Love is the substance of everything, the foundation of all existence. It is incredibly difficult to convey the true meaning of Love to another person as It transcends all forms of representation. In fact, it is only through personal experience that a true knowledge of Love can be attained. For this reason, we are restricted for the most part to communicate only technical aspects of Love.

Figure 2.# - Love

The word love in its ordinary usage is so loaded with assumptions that it is almost impossible to find a definition that does not contradict the true meaning behind this word. True love is an absolute concept; it is love in the universal and spiritual sense, that is, love for all things in the universe and for the universe itself. Also, as many spiritual teachings like to put it, true love is unconditional and transcendental, which means that it does not rely on limiting conditions to the spirit. True love flows and happens naturally; it is not caused or moved by anything in particular. Ordinary love, however, is restricted to the attraction and attachment to particular things or beings in exclusion of everything else, and thus it is not universal and rarely will it have a spiritual quality as it is mostly superficial. It is the kind of love that is coerced by external circumstances and relies on impulse rather than will and consciousness. Anyway, because of the great confusion that surrounds the meaning of love, let us consider Love (IC #13) instead, with capital L.

Love has very little to do with desire for the simple reason that whoever desires is coming from the principle that they are not yet complete, and thus they need to obtain something to be complete. They are assuming that they do not already possess something equivalent or even better. This is the limiting condition of desire. Therefore, as long as there is desire, there is potential for misery and suffering, and whoever desires must be unaware that Love is the principle that everything is already complete and in perfect harmony: there has never been a separation (disharmony) between desired and desirer. Whoever desires will also believe oneself to be in "love," not realizing that they are letting some extraneous force of attraction (IC #1) abuse them. They will be forgetting that true love is all about harmony and thus should not feel like a burden, that is, like if there is "no choice." (Note: desire is also caused by fear because it is fear of incompleteness. Fear will be discussed later in this section.)

There is little room for us to build a rational interpretation of Love. The Truth (Love) is irrational at first, because It is pure, in Its purest (immaculate) form. A being shortly after coming into existence will be immature and thus will come to experience Love as an irrational urge / feeling. As the being matures, it starts to build a bridge from rationality to irrationality that is supported by actual knowledge of Love, and knowledge is indeed power in this case. All beings are looking for Love, but not always are they mature enough to control the energy of Love so that they can be in a permanent state that makes use of it. Only true love has the potential to be permanent. To experience Love is to experience the Eternal. Again, Love is the most powerful energy, which means that accessing, controlling and maintaining it poses the greatest challenge to any being.

infinite (IC #8) energy (IC #5) -> 8 + 5 = 13 -> Love (IC #13)
Schematics 2.#

Love is an omnipresent energy: It is to be found all around you and also within you, spiritually speaking. You will never find It outside of you, at least not in a complete and permanent sense, unless you discover It within you, and you let It flow through you. Therefore, to rely too much on externals by assuming them to be exclusive sources of Love is to actually seek Love in the wrong place or direction and to not trust in Its omnipresence. The idea that the outer world is a reflection of the inner world is specially true when it comes to how much Love one can experience and what is the frequency of this in their life / existence. The ideal is that one works toward the perpetuation (IC #13) of their experience of Love, which basically requires a diligent trust in this force. Love has to be met with Love.

Many sources have mentioned before about Love being the basic law of Creation, the only law we have. A famous phrase coined by occultist Aleister Crowley is "Love is the law, Love under Will." Technically, the last part of this statement is wrong considering that Will and Love are at the same level (i.e., one is not "under" the other), although we may consider that Crowley simply wanted to emphasize the dependence of the latter upon the former. Indeed, any law expects a degree of commitment and discipline requiring that one's will is aligned with it. In the case of Love, no restrictions are cast upon anyone's will, and this alone acts as the whole of this law. However, in the same manner that the power of Love poses a great challenge to those seeking to attain It, great discipline is necessary when it comes to discovering and obeying your true will (i.e., Will). Therefore, in the end Love turns out as being the most restrictive law of all, but also the most liberating when understood and applied correctly.

Love, human of the Earth, is the first and last law of all being, therefore of life, altogether. Without Love no creation may form, and without Love no transformation may be completed. Love is required for all changes of life, for being and not-being, for light and darkness, for the coming and the passing away, for life and death, for everything in everything, and for everything in the existence altogether. (Law of Love) 1

Law of Allowance is the alias we will use to refer to Love as a law. This law manifests / expresses the Will of the Creator (a.k.a. Will of the Universe, Divine Will) while determining just one rule: to allow and accept (IC #13) everything dearly and unconditionally. This may sound contradictory for a law, but the Law of Allowance does dictate something: free will must be maintained at all costs. Above all, free-will is the right that every being has of choosing and pursuing whatever it wishes to be, and this means that Love protects all existence by ensuring that everything can be and continue (IC #13) to be unimpeded. In other words, Love wishes life to every being, and it wishes existence to every thing. Finally, by even allowing negative expressions of Itself (e.g., hate, fear) to exist, Love maximizes the possibilities in the exercise of free will.

Love = Law of Allowance = Law of Creation = Law of Love
Schematics 2.#

If you had to follow just one law, that would be Love, but the paradox is that Love is the only law that does not require obedience, although we could say that Its only requirement is that one shall remain free to obey It or not. That is, every being is permitted to experience Love even if the experience is one of denial. This means that in one way or another we are always obeying / following Love -- there is not really a choice in the matter. Of course, perhaps an individual does not even want to choose whether he wants to obey Love or not, but he is still making a choice, that is, the choice of not wanting to make a choice. Choices are always being made either consciously or subconsciously.

When our choices are made subconsciously, we will play the victim role as consequences arise and we pretend not to know where they came from. On the other hand, it is through the conscious affirmation of our choices that we exercise free will, and that is how we abide by Love, whereas free will dissipates when we remain oblivious (unconscious) to our choices. Still, even an unconscious choice is abiding by Love, at least indirectly, because at some point in someone's existence they could have made a conscious choice of no longer having to assume responsibility for any subsequent choices, but they still had to assume responsibility for that first choice. The moral of this story is that Love is the only law that everyone can agree with or that everyone is already in agreement with, because there are no obligations except accepting responsibility for our own choices.

In the song "All is Full of Love" by Björk,2 the idea that Love is an omnipresent energy is well illustrated with the passage "All is full of love : you just ain't receiving." In other words, the problem was never really about the search for Love; instead, it is about making a simple decision to embrace Love right now and ever. It is a matter of letting Love flow into us naturally and not resist the changes that will take place. Resistance is futile in this case, because the Law of Allowance is already implemented everywhere in the universe; it is therefore useless to dispute It or run away from It. To do so only causes unnecessary suffering.

It is not really possible to reject / deny Love, since Love is responsible for the very miracle of existence. Love is already implemented and realized with full force in all forms of existence. This fact turns the idea of us "applying" Love in our lives into a pointless task, because everyone is already doing it in one way or another. However, it is also pointless to think that there is no need for us to ever worry about anything again just because everything is already regimented by Love. In this case we would be merely clinging to the obvious and using it as an excuse to drop responsibility. A true balanced approach consists of us taking responsibility and implementing the Law of Love through Will instead of letting ourselves be ruled by this law, which can cause problems (suffering) because of how the energies, the ensuing emotions of Love, will not be under our control.

Love does not require any kind of special devotion; It does not expect us to do anything in Its name or that we act in a certain manner all the time. Love only expect us to surrender ourselves to our true will. The fact that Intention #12 is followed by Intention #13 means that any form of consciousness (IC #12) is already inheriting almost all of the Will of the Creator, which is Love (IC #13). The only missing part between Intentions #12 and #13 is the unique account on fulfilling one's Will that comes with individuality (IC #1). In other words, each being has its own unique way to express Love, and thus to follow your Will actually means to express Love in your own way. We implement our Will through Love, and we implement Love through our Will.

12 + 1 = 13 -> consciousness (IC #12) individuated (IC #1) -> a being (IC #13)
Schematics 2.#

As implied by the Law of Allowance, one of the most efficient ways to express Love is to simply allow things to happen and allow things to change. There is great wisdom in being able to just honor the way things are. However, it is important that we understand that allowance does not always mean inaction, because passiveness can also tamper with the free (natural) flow of things. For example, in a river stream full of fish, you decide to set free a fish that got stuck between some rocks. This is what Love in action is, but it would not be Love if you tried to impede the fish from moving with the river flow or if you remained passive while the fish was in clear need of help (intervention). Notice that, although this example is nice, there is no perfect formula that can be applied to the myriad of ways that Love can be expressed.

Figure 2.# - Universal love

Therefore, before one can live by Love and thus practice It efficiently, they must learn discernment and attain wisdom based on the Law of Allowance. Sometimes our assistance is truly needed; sometimes it is not. Sometimes our duty of assistance is simply to allow things to develop on their own. In fact, Love is really like an affirmation / declaration made by the Creator Himself with full force: "So be it!". Additionally, beliefs that are limiting to our choices can also be limiting to our ability to practice Love. A lot of people like to preach the idea that Love is only about "good" deeds. But the truth is that Love is not devoid of force, strength or even violence as long as we are keeping honor, respect and justice in the equation. The gentleness of Love can also be the gentleness of strength. Sometimes Love can even account for Its own negation if the end goal is an even greater expression of Itself.

Does this mean that killing in the name of Love might be justifiable? Certainly not when we are wise enough to always strive for a better solution, but in reality there is no answer to this question because Love is above the category that elicited it. The question itself carries an erroneous assumption, a fundamental mistake, and thus trying to answer it is the same as giving in to the possibility that Love can fail. But Love is absolute and cannot fail. A proper understanding of It can provides us with wisdom beyond words that will automatically decide the best course of action should a dangerous situation arise. However, none of this means that we cannot devise a code of conduct based on Love that is compatible with our current level of understanding.

Love is paradoxical for the simple fact that It is a law that does not work as one: a law that cannot be violated is no more no less than just the way things are. Therefore, when we affirm the importance of Love as for example with the phrase "Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion" (David Icke), we may be putting too much emphasis on the obvious. A naive (non-practical) approach to Love serves no real purpose in a practical world. That is, we have to be more technical and remember that a true understanding of Love can only come through life experiences, which often involve a series of problematic situations that do not resemble more idealistic (sentimental) expressions of Love. This means that our reality and experiences are all-important, because they function as a jumping platform that propels us toward greater understanding of Love.

Yes, Love will prevail, but only at the very end of our journey back to the Source. (See 2.1 - The Model of Creation.) It is in the Source, the core of Creation, that infinite, perfect and genuine love can be found. Everyone is already spiritually present at the Source, but not everyone has achieved a mental and spiritual connection to Love that allows one to experience being physically present at the Source as well. There is always more work (evolution) to do, and that is why it is important that we avoid falling into extremes of denial of Love or denial of reality. We must always remember that the absolute concept of Love is not removed from reality, no matter how grim it is.

Relationship with the Thirteen Intentions

Intention #13 is the most powerful energy of Creation, or to be more exact, the divine energy that we call Love. However, in the Artificial Creation (AC) Love is spread out and fragmented in many pieces that must be put back together one by one through a series of experiences that compose a line of evolution (IC #11) for the individual. Evolution is the name of the process of Creation, a process that justifies the existence of the physical universe. If there was no possibility of evolution, there would be no need for the AC and the Thirteen Intentions at all, and Creation should remain as an immanifest singularity without levels of energy forming an evolutionary ladder. Thus we now know the true reason for why "there is something instead of nothing."

Each one of the Thirteen Intentions is a different way of expressing Love, with Intention #13 being the one that brings Love forward in Its full glory. The latter is sometimes referred to as being an "unconditional" sort of Love. The problem with such denomination is that unconditional still sounds like a condition within the context of the Law of Allowance. Love in action is about comprehension, cognition, mastering, respect, reason and integrity, and all based on wisdom, which in no circumstance means a complete lack of conditions. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that there is no such thing as unconditional love inside the AC; there is only a learning process toward Love, the big L version, and any accomplishments during this process are at most approximations of what Love really is, be it unconditional or not.

Figure 2.# - Unconditional love

Love as the universal law cannot be directly applied in practice because it involves a level of self-awareness and self-responsibility that has nothing to do with us doing one thing or another in particular, but that also depends on every single action of our part. Trying to come up with the "perfect" Loving behavior can only take us so far until we realize that we are simply not trusting the already present energy of Love that directs everything so perfectly from behind the scenes. Everything is already as it should be. All that we have to do is carry on with this truth in mind and also act with basis on it, and soon enough we will be in our way to achieve something close to perfection.

It is only when we break Love down into rules and directives that we can begin to understand It from a more rational and scientific viewpoint, and thus we can discover effective ways of applying It in our lives. That is where the Thirteen Intentions come in, because they can help us with translating our understanding of Love into rational thoughts. Then we can plan in advance and make decisions according to the best moral principles of Creation. This is mainly what Chapter 4 is all about: to show how the Intentions can be used in practice.

To exemplify, imagine Creation as a spherical jewel floating in a void: With the creation of the universe, and also from a perspective inside the AC, it can be said that the jewel has been shattered into many pieces. The jewel itself still exists as a fragmented whole, the sum of its parts, but it is no longer in a pristine (unified) condition and probably will never be again. In any case, the jewel seen as a single object from the outside represents the Divine Creation, whereas the AC corresponds to how the jewel has become a bunch of broken / disconnected pieces, or facets if we consider the jewel as being multi-faceted instead of smooth -- both analogies are valid.

Figure 2.#

The most important thing in life is the acquisition of experiences (IC #5), which in turn means to learn more about Love. To learn about Love is an eternal task in reality, but one that can be made discrete, hence more palatable, in the form of cycles (i.e., many different lives). This means that living life in itself is already the purpose of life, because every life cycle is a modal unit of experience. Life is supposed to be lived according to your Will. The goal is to keep living, to evolve, and to let others do the same. There is no such thing as a restrictive plan to life, because that would go against your incorruptible right for free-will according to the Law of Allowance. However, discipline is always a good thing to ensure that you are living in the best possible manner by making the right choices. So, discipline yourself by making your own rules according to your Will and the directives of Creation, because then you can amplify your life experiences and become a living example to others.

Fear

Fear is basically a feeling of spiritual disconnection. Fear emanates from the shadowy part of the Self that is temporarily separated from the Divine. Fear arises when one gazes into nothingness, the void that once was occupied by a spirit. The vibration of fear takes over when one cannot find their essence / spirit anymore. Fear is the greatest barrier to personal growth, a barrier that can prevent us from acquiring self-awareness and rediscovering our spiritual nature / identity. Fear can easily spiral out of control and transform into despair as one gazes deeper into the abyss of the soul. However, not all is lost, because according to German philosopher Goethe, "Tiefer, tiefer, irgendwo in der Tiefe gibt es ein Licht." (Translation: "Deeper, deeper, somewhere in the depth there is a light.")

Figure 2.# - Fear

If we are supposed to come up with an opposite for Love, then it can only be fear, not hate. Hate is actually the opposite of Love's lesser / ordinary version: love with small l. We have already exposed the idea of unconditional love as being a fallacious assumption of what Love really is, and such judgment applies the same for other ordinary notions of Love because they all tend to be extremist and imbalanced. Small l love is extremist like hate, and so the two work together as sides of the same coin. On the other hand, the Big L reigns supreme over all sides as if they were one, and a force against It does not really exist except as an extremely distorted expression of Love Itself. Although it is true that everything in the universe is a matter of love vs. fear, you can see that such conception is only valid when we are talking about love, because there is no opposition at all when fear is in reality Love playing an inverse role of Itself. This means that an opposition between fear and Love is nothing more than an illusion propagated by fear itself.

Figure 2.# - Coin

It would be a great shame for Love if It had to do battle with a counterfeit opposition. True love comes from a much higher plane than the unconditional version that requires its adherents to turn the other cheek in masochistic style. The Big L may also turn the other cheek, but not because It is incapable of reacting: being Love an infinite power, all fights are already decided in Its favor. What Love represents at the level of Intention #13 is an eternal victory, while the battles and competitions involving the polarity aspects of Love are just for fun and laughs, since playfulness is one of the main aspects of Love. Think about it: if you do not care about losing or winning, then what good is a game to you?

Fear is considered the primary instinct of survival (self-preservation) in dangerous situations. But here we are more interested in the energy of fear and its fundamental nature, not in physiological and psychological effects caused by fear. We are talking about fear in the spiritual sense, because fear is like a barrier causing one to be disconnected from the Spirit. Fear is the principle by which consciousness is persuaded to continue to maintain that barrier, which is needed for the preservation of the being inside the game of Creation. In Section 2.2 we had a glimpse of the actual source code of the universe implemented as the program (game) of Creation and then we saw how consciousness becomes individuated when it first enters the game. Well, fear makes sure that the player (being) has a chance of surviving all stages of the game. Fear prevents the player from giving up too soon and will leave him with no choice other than progressing into the game.

When you avoid something out of fear, it's only because that thing still exerts influence over you, and you may just right into it without knowing. just fall back to it in the drop of a hat. fear is a great attractor, and we always attract that which we fear. A negative attitude based on fear draws a negative experience that will feed that fear of yours. fear has to be overcome / mastered first through acceptance of it, and then by confronting it. just sitting and acknolwdgeing the fear is not enough. One must transform the fear into higher levels of understanding, and the highest level is Love. The key is to experience and subsequently to learn to control and direct the fear energy, transforms his fear into fury, caution, courage... the fear energy is which is Love on the mirror, , so reaching out for Love automatically means letting go of fear. translates to a unfocused, uncontrolled love. not put into action or movement. lack of control of one's energy.

To put it simply, fear is ignorance, unawareness and, deep inside, denial of Love, because there is always a choice at the level of the subconscious mind. We have already made the connection between fear and denial when we were discussing Love in the beginning of this section. Fear is always associated with denial of some integral aspect of Creation, and most importantly, everything that Intention #13 represents. Intention #13 can represent many things, but one of Its most important aspects on a personal level is change. Change always involves some loss by the introduction of the new and the removal of the old. False expectations instead of acceptance of whatever may come is what characterizes a fearful approach to the new (IC #13). When the new is falsely imagined beforehand rather than being accepted for what it is, it is turned into an unknown, and all fear is generated by unknowns. In addition, fear involves an ignorant perspective of denial, which means that the fearful entity does not even understand the reason for its feelings of repulsion.

... all our worries and wars are based upon change. We fear that something will happen, or we fear that it won't; so we fight to prevent change or to speed up the process. But whatever we do, change is 100 percent guaranteed. The only question is its rate. Slow change we interpret as evolution, fast as revolution. Changes are the epitome of Unknowns -- the greatest of fear generators. (Monroe 2)

Figure 2.# - Love and fear

Whereas Love is latent in the first few Intentions of Creation, fear is potent, and can be pictured as being a natural force pushing away from Intention #13. Considering that this force must go through Intentions #3 and #2 in order to reach Intention #1, we can resume the focus, the culmination of fear as being an existence (IC #3) that is removed (IC #2) from Love in the most absolute (IC #1) manner. But how absurd does this sound when we already know that Love is absolute? Surprisingly, not so absurd considering that absolute (IC #1) existence (IC #3) -> 1 + 3 -> 13 -> IC #13, which means that fear still guides one to Intention #13 after all. Indeed, what is shown in Figure 2.# is a perspective from within the illusory reality of the Artificial Creation. It only appears that fear opposes Love, because in reality fear is a force of attraction toward Love without the conscious participation of the individual.

Figure 2.#

Intention #13 is is a singularity (IC #1) manifested (IC #3) meaning that It is self-sufficient, It is whole unto itself, and does not need the other Intentions, including Intention #2. Now if fear is denial of love, it is also denial of what Intention #13 represent, and so fear justifies the existence of polarity which means two poles and not just a singularity. Fear in adition is a potent (IC #5): it pushes the poles fara way from each other as possible, that is, extrapolate (IC #8). it wants the two poles to be completely (IC #10) separate. biut it can at most make an approximation (IC #11). ANyway, see Note how we have mentioned ICs #5, #8, #10 ansd #11 come into the picture just because of the process of polarization which is directly related to fear. We could also derived the other itnentions. but the fact is the firts 12 intentiosn only have their existence justified because of thsi process of division that we call fear.inshort this processa alone involves all 12 intentions.

Let us see some examples of how fear is simultaneously repulsion from Intention #13 and attraction to Intention #1. Fear of death, for example, is supported by the belief that there is only one (IC #1) life that must be preserved as sacred; however, according to Intention #13, there is continued existence as long as there is will (IC #13) to exist, not mattering how many lives happen during the process. There is also fear of life when one is afraid of not living according to external (IC #2) conventions (Representation - IC #1) that require conformity to social standards. Fear can make people choose to conform instead of expressing their individuality. Interestingly enough, according to numerological arithmetic we have individuality (IC #1) expressed (IC #3) -> 1 + 3 -> 13 -> IC #13, and so fear of non-conforming goes against Intention #13 as well.

Now, if fear is a force that pushes away from Love, we may ask ourselves: away from Love toward what? Well, the answer is nothing, because the very premise of the question is an absurd. Indeed, fear is love of nothing; it is still Love, but without control by the hands of the individual. For example, the Divine Creation disappearing in the inverted Model of Creation means that the Source can no longer be found. The Source contains an infinite amount of love, and the fact that all this love is suddenly gone creates a feeling of disconnection that leaves the being completely lost. At Its essence, Source is Love and as such Love is the only real (authentic) energy in the universe; all else is just illusion associated with the game of separation, which is fear, that defines the physical universe. Fear is the shadow of illusory disconnection from the Source, which is everyone's original home. Fearful beings are attracted to nothing because it is a placeholder for where their Home was. Fear manifests as denial of reality in favor of nothing because instead of looking forward to go back, the being is looking back to where it came from.

Still according to Figure 2.#, consider that fear is a magnetic pole at Intention #1 whose force of attraction, or sphere of influence, is stronger at Intention #2 (separation), #3 (illusion) and #4 (physicality). Therefore, we can say that fear is rooted in the illusory perception of separation that pervades the physical universe. Anyway, and perhaps fortunately, fear is gradually released as there is attunement to higher Intentions of Creation. As the individual suffers a spiritual (IC #9) transformation, focus shifts from fear to Love as an ignorant (fearful) approach to Love is replaced with a conscious one. Thus fear is the foreshadowing of such transformation. Indeed, it is always a surprise for those who held a negative connotation about fear to see that their greatest fears were essential to their spiritual awakening. From a victim of fear they have become masters of Love. They were on the right path all the time -- they just did not know it.

In spite of fear being an illusion considered by many as the cause of negative experiences, fear is vital for an evolutionary existence. In Figure 2.# we can see that without a force of repulsion that creates separation there would be no distance or difference between Intention #1 and #13. This 12-fold distance is the conceptual length of an evolutionary process for consciousness as it traverses the universe. In short, fear sets forth and justifies an entire context of evolution and spiritual progression. Fear is only fear as long as there is lack of spirituality, a phase in which the individual is unknowingly seeking Love while guided by its own fear. That is, the individual requires the experience of fear until it is ready to experience Love.

Fear is the original disassociative distraction of the spirit of Creation. The Spirit, or Consciousness forgets about Itself, but it is a wilful act so that it can remember about its nature anew. In other words, it is a like the mythical Luciferian rebellion, a denial of Love, so that Love can be rediscovered, because rediscovering Love is the only way to learn more about It. To deny Love is still just an experience, but perhaps not the most pleasurable one, reason why it cannot be sustained forever. however multiple attempts can be are done continually, efefctively creating a continuous process. in intention #13 acceptance and eternity are related; therefore, there is no such as "eternal denial". there is only eternal accepatnce and temporary denial. denial _is_ the temporary process, while greater and greater acceptance is a continuous, eternal process.

To say that there is a state where one becomes fearless is an exxageration. Some degree of fear is always present. However, when we are able to accept our fear, we can control / master it. Courage is mastery of fear. Denial of fear is the only obstacle to its transcendence. The only thing we have to deny is denial itself, The only thing to fear is fear itself, and that is how fear eventually cancels itself out. A fearless / courageous person is more afraid of not facing their fear than what they fear. Also, if ic 3 representes infintie power (5 + 8 = 13), and fear is denial of what ic13represents, then our deepest fear as beings (IC #13) is that we are powerful beyond measure, and that we can overcome all of our fears.

To conclude, know that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with fear. When Consciousness enters the game of Creation and becomes individualized, it is only natural that a feeling of loneliness sets in on the being. But it is these emotions based on fear that will lead the being back to its original home where true love can be found. In other words, without a number of fear-based lessons there is no way for the being to finally be able to see (remember) the bright (loving) side of existence. One must never forget the fact that Love rules over everything. Fear is only the illusion that there is something wrong with Creation, or that life in the universe is unsafe. There is nothing to fear but fear itself, and this implies that ultimately there is nothing to fear.

Light & Dark

Love should lead to unity, coexistence, comprehension and cooperation regardless of differences; therefore, whenever we are talking about love as the opposite of hate, we can only be talking about love with small l. Between love and hate, the first is when Love is approached by an immature spirit, while the second is when Love is approached by a rebellious spirit. There are strong emotions involved in both: love is a positive passion, and hate is a negative passion. There is also a dose of fear in both, because there is intolerance (non-acceptance) toward what Love represents: perfect harmony. The idea here is really one of polarity (IC #2): love and hate are opposite forces, and a force by definition is exerted by a pole. There is no real difference between love and hate, because each one has the other in its heart. (Example: the immature is rebellious at heart and the rebellious is immature at heart.) Consequently, any vocabulary used to describe love can also be applied to hate, otherwise the only thing we can be sure of is that both feelings are disconnected from the higher energy of Love.

Figure 2.# - Love scenarios

By definition, the existence of one pole implies in the existence of another. One pole is always attracting to the direction of Love, which can be considered the right / good direction after all. But we can extrapolate and claim that Love is to be found in the wrong / evil direction as well, and this is true in a paradoxical sense: fear is the hallmark of Love's severity. There is darkness in Love in the same manner that a good / loving person is not immune from casting a shadow. Think of a father that wants to teach his son to grow stronger, yet he needs to do this indirectly by lending minimal assistance so to not spoil the child. The fact is that Love can be defined recursively similarly to how we did with the Whole in Section 1.5: Love is the output of a continuous process of atonement that seeks to eliminate polarity of opposites. Any pair of opposites that eventually arises is neutralized so that unity can appear again. Therefore, Unity / Love always wins, but It still leaves room for an eventual challenge when the next duality appears.

Love inside the context of polarity gives rise to two sides: one of light and one of darkness. Light and Dark are fitting names for the basic polarities of the Universe because they indicate that we are working with contrasting aspects. Everything in the Universe is either of the Dark or Light polarity. What is not obvious is that the polarities share the same power source: the Source (IC #13). In fact, it is denial (fear) of the absoluteness of the Source, that is, of how the Source is the source of all energies, that results in some seeing It as an emission of white light or of black light. In reality, the Source emits both types of light at the same time, and so It does not emit any type in particular. The closest analogy of color to what the Source produces is golden light, the energy of perfect balance. We will learn more about these aspects of color and light in Chapter 3.

Figure 2.# - Light and Dark Bonus image

Symbolically speaking, the main difference between the respective sources of Light and Dark is that one emits a very bright light and the other emits a deep darkness. Therefore, whether it is due to obfuscation by too much light or due to lack of visibility in the darkness, followers of the polar sources are continually tripping and falling on their way to the true source. All paths lead to the Source, and all of them are fundamentally rocky (challenging - IC #2), so the only difference lies in whether someone is paying attention to their path or not. Instead of focusing exclusively on the light at the end of the road, a balanced perspective based on Love gives as much importance to the journey (road) as well to the goal, and in fact it sees no difference at all: the journey is the goal. What really matters is that which is experienced during the journey.

Figure 2.# - The Road

When someone needs to learn and evolve, it does not matter if this is done through a positive (Light) or negative (Dark) path. All experiences turn out as being positive in the end. What is important is that one becomes aware of where one is ultimately going or not going for that matter. A follower of Dark will learn a lot in his path of darkness, but eventually this path reveals itself as being wrong under the true light of Love, not under the false (blinding) light of the Lightside. There is no Dark path actually, because no road can be seen in the darkness. Similarly, a follower of Light will roam erratically as long as he is blinded by the Light, and this too eventually reveals a mistake, a missing road. Therefore, followers of either polarities are too blind to stay in the correct path and complete their course. The correct path is the path of consciousness evolution, in which greater wisdom is acquired through a series of learning experiences. Wisdom does not have a polarity.

Love can be seen as being Light or Dark, but in reality It carries the best of both polarity aspects while having nothing to do with each aspect taken individually. This is what creates confusion for most beings in the universe, since they assume Love to be strictly Dark or Light. We can, however, say that Love is the true Light that can either become occult, hence the Dark polarity, or become excessively bright, hence the Light polarity. In the first case, gazing away from Love and into the darkness will merely cause one (darksider) to emulate the feeling of desolation found in it, the fear. In the second case, gazing directly at Love is difficult if one's eyes are not properly (spiritually) accustomed to it, and thus one (lightsider) is not able to see past the brightness onto the truthness of Love. In any case, some degree of darkness is all that the dark- or the lightsider can see and emulate upon.

The polarities also exist as opposing factions that operate by the principle of fear and use it as their main weapon. We already know that fear is a force that pushes for total separation between poles. Both polarities want to be the monopole that concentrates all the power for itself, but of course that this is impossible as long as there are two competing for hegemony. Still, to achieve the goal of monopolism both the Darkside and the Lightside have representatives in place with fear-based purposes: A darksider's approach is more direct (active) and is willing to do anything to generate fear that will feed his Dark source. A lightsider's approach is more indirect (passive) and simply expects that everyone should worship (fear) his Light source, believed to be "superior." The fact is that both sides wish to feed their respective power sources with fear energy. Representing these sources we can always think of something external: deities, leaders, ideologies, symbols or even oneself (ego) when there is a self-centered attitude, since polarization is also present when the individual worships self from an external perspective.

Figure 2.# - Power sources

If the polarities are sides of the same coin, then anything that can be said about one must be inversely applicable to the other; however, we can also draw many parallels between them based on their natural equivalence (IC #6). Consider, for example, that darksiders have no higher purpose other than just to deny Love in the most explicit manner. They are ruthless and simply like to cause fear on others, specially because they need fear energy to feed their power source: the Dark. On the other hand, lightsiders seek to have a genuine connection with Love, but a lack of understanding prevents it from happening. They fail to connect with Love because their unwillingness to accept the rightful existence of Dark violates the Law of Allowance, and thus they prefer to worship (feed) a distant representation of Love that becomes their power source: the Light. Their notion of Love is too idealistic, hence imbalanced, and they hold it in such a high regard that they end in denial of what Love truly represents: the polarities joined together in perfect balance. It is a synthesis and integration (IC #10) between the polarities.

The polarities do not have an existence independent from each other. They only come into existence as a whole (IC #10) and to the extent that they are equal (IC #6). After all, the notion of polarity corresponds to Intention #2, whereas the notion of existence only gets introduced later with Intention #3. But it is only with Intention #6 that we have the first clue to how the polarities function and exist as a whole: they are equal halves of an "engine" responsible for a dynamic (IC #10) balancing act, a spinning yin-yang kind of thing. Therefore, not only do we have to recognize that the polarities coexist in the big picture, but we also have to take into account a dynamic relationship between them. This is a relationship characterized by how the polarities feed on their mutual desire to confront each other, otherwise they would both starve and die if their feeding channels were removed.

Figure 2.# - Yin Yang

The polarities subscribe to the quest for total separation between poles that characterizes fear, but they are still being affected by an universal force of attraction based on the directive Approximation (IC #11). By analogy, this force is the inverse of a repulsive force based on Separation (IC #2). The latter pushes for a state of oneness (IC #1), in which poles are completely separate and alone, while the former pushes for a state of Oneness (IC #13), in which poles are not separate nor alone because they are one (whole - IC #10) to the degree that they form a spiritual (IC #9) bond. There is repulsion and attraction happening simultaneously when it comes to interaction between the polarities; it is much like in a love-hate relationship. The two forces respectively based on Intentions #2 and #11 are inversely proportional and equilibrating each other to create the spinning motion of a binary system, as it is shown below.

Figure 2.# - Polarities as a whole

No matter how much someone has raised their consciousness above dualism, for an external judge they will always fall into one side (Dark) or the other (Light). Of course that somewhere in the course of eternity one may achieve 100% control (balance) over the Light and Dark aspects of their being, but the Creator is the only one who has already done this. The Creator is, after all, a personification of Love. The polarities are not completely unaware that they are cooperating with each other on behalf of Love. They may pretend that they want each other destroyed, or that they need to stay far away from each other, but deep inside they know that they need each other. This is the constant interplay between Light and Dark that is fundamental to keep the game of Creation running. As one side attacks or avoids the other out of fear, it gives their opponent purpose and motivation to react -- action and reaction. What would be the purpose of a lightsider if not to combat the "dark forces"? And what would be the purpose of a darksider if not to corrupt the Light that the lightsiders love so much?

Polarity is a fundamental aspect of Creation, and so the polarities are required to exist in all levels, from micro to macroscopic scales, and in several dimensions and densities, but they are active only in some. The different levels of Creation will be explained in Chapter 3, but it is worth mentioning that the polarities are active only up to the sixth density. In the seventh density there is only positive orientation toward Love, and then comes the next higher octave. (Note: a negative orientation in this case is one that still focuses on polarity issues.) In the sixth density, the positive entity is already facing the positive side, but the negative entity has an additional step to make: a 180 degree turn to face the positive side. It is however a simple reorientation that the entity has to make considering that one who reaches the top of the mountain from the shadowy side needs only to take a small step into the sunny side. There is always time for one to change the road they are on.

The good thing about polarity is that it appears to be a very simple game: if Light is the inverse of Dark, then absence of one must mean presence of the other. However, the game is not so simple when we rise above the chess board, because then we can see the various possibilities for moves and strategies. For example, being the polarities equal (IC #6) halves, one can easily assume the other's place. The Darkside is particularly well known for its ability to imitate / infiltrate the Lightside in order to deceive. Every master of Light who expects or demands worship is a darksider in disguise. Also, whenever we are talking about pyramidal / top-down power structures, we are already implying that there is explicit polarization going on, which is a Dark mark. A true master of Light, when Light actually means Love, does not ask for followers and does not participate in Dark schemes. A true master does not proclaim himself to be a master.

Another aspect of the chess game of polarity is how both Light and Dark believe that they deserve to occupy the throne alone. Each side considers itself as being "illuminated" and the other as being "in the dark." This is interesting because it shows how the polarities are nothing more than the sides of a coin that is constantly flipping. Everything polarity-wise is a matter of perspective. Light and Dark are different depending on your perspective, but if you assume a higher perspective then you begin to see the similarities between them. However, the perspective of those who fully embrace and incorporate the polarities is still at the level of the game board occupying either black or white squares. They are the pawns, and they are unable to grasp the truth that one side cannot exist without the other -- without Light there is no Dark and vice-versa. Both sides need to have a relationship with each other so that they can continue to exist individually.

Light and Dark cannot be beaten in their own game because the very purpose of it is that players adopt the "win-lose" mentality. The game exists as long as there are hopes that it will end once the forces of Light overcome the forces of Dark, or vice-versa. However, the game can only end when both sides give up, because one side could not destroy the other without destroying itself in the process. Were Dark to destroy Light, it would self-destruct into nothingness (IC #9). Nonetheless, a polarity game can be won on a personal level when you remove yourself from it without guilt or remorse. You should not attempt to fight against the polarity principle itself; you should transcend it by evolving past desires to initiate action against another. According to the cosmic law of balance (IC #6), for each individual that leaves a polarity game, that will remove one pawn of Light and one pawn of Dark.

While Light fights against Dark and vice-versa, an incarnation of Love lies above the battle field observing, learning and participating indirectly through all sides as well as directly through a side of its own. However, It is certainly insuffienct to say that Love is a neutral side, because although it assumes the role of a neutral side, it is also more than just a side and carries a richer proposal other than just neutrality or indifference. Love is the side that unifies all sides on spiritual ground and its only proposal is that once enough battle has been done, both sides will lay their arms and look up and beyond the experience of conflict toward one of cooperation as a whole. Simple acknowledgement that the poalrities are "one" is not enough. Factions of both polarities have to go through a serious spiritual transformation before they are able to see beyond their differences.
