1. Introduction

1.1 Theory versus practice

Theories play an important role in our lives by helping us make sense of the world. When we develop a theory, we are not primarily concerned with practical results as we are with the possibility of finding answers that can increase our knowledge of the universe. In fact, if scientific theories were elaborated only with immediate and practical purposes in mind, a lot of them would not even exist today. Any knowledge acquired by us is priceless, whereas applying that knowledge in our lives is mostly just a matter of paying the right price.

Problems have to be completely understood before we can come up with efficient solutions. It is therefore normal for theoretical research to be carried out for a long time until concrete results can appear. Still, no theory is sacred; no theory is beyond practical application to the point of it being contemplated as a work of art. The problem begins when we want a theory to yield practical results, because usually that will require twice as much work than elaborating the theory itself. A classical example regarding this kind of dilemma lies in the stereotype of the mad university professor who daydreams about fantastic theories while failing to produce concrete results from his research. Well, suppose that one day the university's upper management decides to stop funding the professor's unyielding project, yet if only they had waited a few more days before making that decision, the professor could probably have achieved a major breakthrough. The moral of this story is that eagerness for results and results only can actually work against the possibility of a great discovery.

There is a strong relationship between the possible applications of a theory and how valuable and effective that theory is. If a theory can be proven to be consistent with observations after rigorous testing and experimentation, it becomes a valuable tool for predicting master phenomena. The relevance and specificity of those predictions will determine how potentially useful the theory is. Such view / approach is known as instrumentalism. In this highly pragmatic view, theories are considered as mere instruments that we can use to gain control over the processes of reality; it does not matter if they do not satisfy philosophical aspirations of achieving the highest truth. For the pragmatist, truth already has a name: pragma, which means "to do, act and perform."

Any scientist with a philosophical mind knows that although each new theory is better and may last longer than a preceding failed one, the only thing that will never fail is his primal instinct to find the truth. The search for the absolute truth has always been the motivation behind philosophical inquiry. The greatest ancient philosophers had this ambition in abundance, and that is why they distinguished themselves from other, less-known thinkers. However, the active search for the truth eventually gave place to the advent of a more pragmatic view of reality. The pragmatist is only concerned with the difference that a theory will make in his world; that is, it makes no sense for him to look for a truth that is independent of his reality. To put it simply, the pragmatist sees the truth as that which is real (factual) or has the possibility of becoming real through action in the physical world. (Note: the physical world in the pragmatic context is also the practical world.)

What happened next is that the pragmatic conception together with religious dogmatism played a strong role in discouraging people from seeking the truth by themselves. It turned out that pragmatism was not only an ideological movement defended by a few philosophers, but an entirely new way of thinking that grew to affect social philosophy as well. Also, pragmatism has helped in many ways to establish grounds for materialism and apathy. The truth has been made into something that people love to take for granted as they simply accept what is handed down to them by institutions and authorities. As a result, people are no longer supposed to look beyond the "facts" of life for answers, because the truth for them is that which is laid upon their eyes: physical reality -- they are entitled to take action upon it or shut up.

What pragmatists seem to ignore is that there is a reflexive relationship as well as a two-way communication between theory and practice. Theoretical knowledge can contribute to the efficiency of practical action, whereas practical action can bring to our awareness facts that complement and refine our knowledge. While practice already includes the act of elaborating a theory, a theory can change our outlook on reality and thus even determine what is considered practical. Therefore, theory should not always be placed under practice, because sometimes the inverse must also happen.

Nonetheless, the supposition that theory and practice are essential to each other is also something that seems to be truer in theory than in practice, at least in terms of what has seeped into the public consciousness. The common view is that theory and practice are separate entities that do not go along with each other. While theoretical behavior relies on careful planning and attention to principles and details, practical behavior has been associated with action without thinking, which is when focus is on "getting things done" at all costs. In other words, people began to reject thinking as an activity too impractical and time-consuming even when a lack of it may very well prove disastrous.1

1.2 Theory of practice

Practice (praxis) usually refers to a situation in which taking action is the only real challenge and the only real purpose. An action can be said to be practical to the extent that it dispenses with the need for lengthy theoretical considerations, because the only motivation for it is the very necessity for deliberate / immediate manifestation of results.

But there is a great deal of subjectivity and confusion when it comes to the notion of practice, because any kind of behavior / activity can be aimed at obtaining so-called practical results. For this reason we must make an important distinction: a practical approach to life does not mean that any kind of activity is permitted. Instead, we need a set of principles that will help us decide which activities are for better or worse. A first step in this direction is to understand that there is no such thing as a complete state of inactivity in the universe. For example, physics predicts that all atoms remain in a state of constant motion (i.e., energetic flux) even when the temperature approaches the absolute zero infinitely.1 Therefore, we must always remember that some degree of activity is present even when there is an appearance of rest and inaction.

Without activity there is no circulation of energy and thus there is not a circuit, a closed system, in which energy is contained. That is, without a containment system there can be no energy present at all, because energy is not an entity in and of itself: there is no such thing as formless energy. Just like water, it simply evaporates back into "nothingness" if we do not keep it inside a bottle. We know that energy (work) is required to bring things into reality, but there is much more to it: we will learn in this book how energy is an universal variable that brings everything into reality. Consequently, without energy it would be no longer possible for a physical reality to exist, which means that existence would become insubstantial and probably very boring.

It is important that we establish a common denominator for the highly subjective term reality. We need to be talking about a reality that everyone can agree and identify with. We may start from the principle that reality is better defined as the baseline of those sensations that feel more intense and can hook our perception for a longer time than others. Well, it is obvious that the only type of reality that everyone shares to some degree, and that feels sufficiently intense and persistent for most people, is the well-known physical reality.

Now, because there is no true state of inactivity that can characterize a complete lack of action, people prefer to accept the values of culture and society when it comes to deciding what activities and courses of action are valid (useful) or not. Therefore, behind the "do something" provocation that people commonly throw at each other, there is always a hint of "do as I do" or "do what is considered valid by our society." The only possible common-sense exception to this rule is that it really does not make sense to possess a valuable instrument such as the human body and never actually use it. Anyway, whether it is in accordance to cultural values or ingrained common sense, practical action is just action seen as useful.

Despite it being neglected by most people, there is an important aspect of life that requires us to figure things out before we get ourselves involved with them. Practice must be based on theory as much as theory must be realized in practice. But because of the external pressure and judgement imposed by society on the individual, people often walk into situations just for the sake of displaying action. This can be very dangerous, of course, because no course of action is free of risks. To jump into a situation without a proper understanding and assessment of risks is tantamount to enter a war zone unarmed: remarkable, but stupid. Doing just for the sake of doing and not understanding why it is necessary to perform an action is what characterizes an ingenuous practical approach.

Practice may have degenerated into those activities composing one's social duty or role, but it is still a central aspect of life. In fact, practice focus on what is essential to human life: survival. By mastering practice, the art of survival, we can master reality. That is why it is necessary that we develop a theory of practice, which is a theory on which we can base our life practice. Any theory that is not of practice is still not realized in what we do and how we live, and so it is still removed from our reality and will ultimately fail to provide us with real answers.

A theory of practice is in many ways a theory of Reality, the ultimate one, and not just a theory based on what we believe or expect reality to be. The best theory is the one born from the unification of both theoretical and practical concepts in a wider frame of reference that provides us with an understanding of the nature of reality. In addition, a theory of Reality cannot be ordinary if we expect it to work all the time; for one thing Reality is ruthless and never fails to screw with us regardless of whether we like It or not. Likewise, a theory of practice needs to be just as ruthless and effective if it has any business explaining Reality to us.

1.3 Final theory

One thing that all theories have in common is that they cannot last forever, and thus they are all wrong since from the beginning: at some point in its life, a theory's inaccuracy and incompleteness will rise to the surface. Many times in history theories have been proven inaccurate and/or incomplete. Scientists can only hope to learn as much from a theory for as long as possible before the inevitable happens. All theories lose their value (applicability) sooner or later. It is just a matter of time until circumstances change and a theory's ability to predict and support new discoveries begins to fail. But let us be a little more reasonable here: it is not only a matter of failure vs. success, because some theories can be more persistent than others, and not all of them need to be rewritten from scratch when something goes wrong. The bottom line is just that we can never be sure about the continued success of a theory without actually testing it for an eternity.

Any physical theory is always provisional, in the sense that it is only a hypothesis: you can never prove it. No matter how many times the results of experiments agree with some theory, you can never be sure that the next time the result will not contradict the theory. (Stephen Hawking)

If we can never prove a theory to be the ultimate one, then looking for one that escapes this rule must be an act of faith. Of course, faith in the context of scientific inquiry is irrelevant, but the degree of confidence that people have in a theory plays an important role in determining its success. As the confidence in a theory grows, the theory grows as well, because more people are willing to support it. The problem with confidence, or any other positive attitude for that matter, is that nothing can replace the scientific prospect of certainty of knowledge. The mistake begins when science is no longer seen as a tool for the quest of knowledge and truth, but instead the tool itself is believed and promoted to be the final truth. This approach is known as scientificism and could not be more non-scientific considering that we cannot be sure that the scientific method is ideal if we do not subject the method itself to a scientific study. But for that, a more profound (i.e., meta-scientific) approach is needed, but also one that is resolute in providing us with certainty in an objective, hence scientific way.

The fact that all theories fail is considered one of the greatest strengths of science, because there is no other way for scientists to continuously achieve more reliable conclusions about their work. In other words, science as an institution sees its own limitations as the factor that promotes its constant development. The problem with this positivistic view, however, lies in how scientific development is not really cumulative as many scientists would like to think.1 Quite the opposite, we observe a succession of revolutions (i.e., paradigm shifts) when newer scientific models replace older models almost completely. Much is lost, but much is gained also. Every time that a new paradigm arises, the scientific establishment is forced to disregard a good part of its work and restructure its disciplines. Real continuous progress is found only in the natural evolution of the collective consciousness of a civilization, which is the actual process that seeds new paradigms that force science to readapt.

But let us assume that there is continuous progress behind science after all. With this in mind, we can ask ourselves the following: how long until there is enough improvement / progress? Do scientists even know exactly where they are going? That is, we cannot afford having no clear destiny in sight while certain problems continue to plague our civilization. It is not prudent to stay in a slow path of evolution when there is a real possibility of getting the process over with at once. Instead of asking the same questions over and over again, we should start asking ourselves about the reason why we keep making questions.

We can, however, resolve this uncertain fate on a personal level by finally achieving closure in our minds that does not rely on faith that the scientific establishment is in a path of steady progress after all. The individual must take back his power and have the confidence that he can discover the Truth for himself. For that we need a theory that does not have limitations, a theory that is not susceptible to failure. It is indeed counterintuitive to even conceive such theory as being scientific (i.e., testable, falsifiable), and it is probably not even a good idea to call it a theory. Therefore, consider that we are not talking about any theory; we are talking about a final theory. The list below shows the requirements of a final theory should it ever arise.

Theories and models are not to be confused with reality; instead, they are built on top of reality. For this reason, all theories born from the physical sciences are too superficial to give us deeper understanding of reality. That is, we either know how things work on the most fundamental level or we hold tight to an elaborate hunch that we consider sufficiently accurate. Well, in the same manner that scientific theories tend to fail, a gap in our understanding eventually becomes our downfall. That is why a theory to be final must provide us with such an accurate understanding that almost no difference (gap) between theory / model and practice / reality remains. Any gap in the application of a final theory must be too insignificant to ever force us to abandon the theory completely.

Realistically speaking, it is impossible for a theory to predict and explain everything on a direct basis, but a final theory could at least offer us a starting point in this herculean task; it could at least offer us the essentials so that the task of discovering the rest becomes a matter of derivation. In other words, a final theory is not the end of the desire to learn, but instead it is the final excitement needed for the acquisition of all knowledge remaining around you. There is no reason for you to continue to live in confusion and doubt. Why not go after the basics first and then have fun experimenting with a fundamental knowledge for the rest of eternity? It is certainly possible to have the best of both worlds: to continue to enjoy a learning process in our existence even though we have already learned the essential.

Many scientists discuss the possibility of a Theory of Everything (TOE) in the scope of all physical sciences. Such theory, however, could never be "of everything" if it does not explain those phenomenons that touch the individual personally and directly, mainly in the case of the study of consciousness, which brings into question many philosophical considerations. One thing is to study reality, which is easily observable; another is to study the nature of such. Therefore, we need more than just a theory of everything in the physical sense; we need more than a theory that attempts to describe the readily observable: those things that already exist and already work. Instead, we need to capture the essence behind phenomena to understand why they exist at all and why the universe works the way it does; we need not a theory, but an understanding of everything, and most importantly an understanding of ourselves: the carriers of the consciousness phenomenom. This is the reason why a final theory is not really a theory in the conventional sense, but more of a learning device capable of transmitting fundamental knowledge.

Therefore, whether a final theory explains everything or not is not even the most important requirement. Above all, a final theory should put an end to the most bugging philosophical, scientific and theological questions so that there would be little or nothing left in our minds besides a raw desire for action based on our understanding of the workings of Reality. In other words, with a final theory there would be no more doubts preventing us from assuming a fully powered practical approach to solve our problems. Instead of continuing to learn by mistakes, we are able to skip the possibility of error completely and go directly after that which is guaranteed to work. Instead of contemplating or ignoring the Truth, we can finally put It into practice.

The single most important goal that anyone can have is to achieve a permanent state of peace of mind. And crucial for the maintenance of peace of mind is the degree of certainty that one has about the universe. Taking this into consideration, we can conclude that a final theory is simply a theory that can provide us with the highest degree of certainty. In this manner, a final theory serves as the ultimate scientific theory, the ultimate religion and also the ultimate philosophy -- it is only a matter of how much it can be developed toward each one of these three directions.

Anyway, it is true that theoretical knowledge will never replace direct experience of the Truth, and so even a final theory is still an interpretation, not an awareness. That is because it is in the actual experience that certainty of knowledge lies. A person needs to internalize the experience of what is true and not just contemplate the Truth from an external perspective. Therefore, the task of attaining the ultimate truth becomes eternal in practice, but we can still strive toward reaching a virtual and theoretical end to our knowledge. We will see in the next section how something like this is possible when we work diligently toward simplifying our knowledge.

1.4 Point of reference

It is important that we stay focused on finding common knowledge between sciences as opposed to perpetuating paradigms that seek to further compartmentalize knowledge. The key for greater knowledge of the universe lies in the practice of knowledge synthesis. Such practice is the mark of a dynamic learning process, which is much better than clinging to a static and opinionated view of the universe. If one is not undoing one's assumptions about the universe every day, then one is not learning anything. In fact, the only assumption that seems to hold true is that any assumption is dangerous and will backfire sooner or later.

Scientists know that laws that apply only to a limited range of phenomena are but minor expressions of fundamental laws that apply to the whole universe. Furthermore, when researchers are sorting information about a certain field of knowledge, they invariably notice a small number of root concepts, perhaps only one, from which all other concepts stem from. In Biology, for example, there are hierarchical models describing the various levels by which life is structured, such as those involving life forms and their evolution from common ancestors. In short, what these examples have in common is that they reveal a hierarchy of concepts intrinsic to how the universe is organized.

In face of the universal principle of hierarchy, what any field of knowledge tries to do is integrate information around a point of reference. In this context, a point of reference is a central piece of knowledge that justifies the existence of all secondary (peripheral) pieces around it. That is, if you achieve this point of reference in your knowledge, achieving the rest becomes a matter of derivation. Only a very small subset of all knowledge is actually useful, while the rest only becomes useful when supported directly or indirectly by this subset. Many times we fail to understand certain aspects of the world because we lack a point of reference acting as the support for our knowledge.

Let us make an analogy: Consider a tiny circle surrounded by several scattered fragments of bigger circles. The tiny circle represents our point of reference. Also, consider that there are many paths leading to the tiny circle, but none of them is free of the clutter caused by the fragments.

Figure 1.1 - Point of reference

The fragments represent fragmented information and distorted knowledge, while the tiny circle represents complete information and perfect knowledge, although the latter is in a relatively small quantity. We can try to put all fragments back together to form perfect circles again, but such task is clearly out of hand: it is the same as trying to use a box of scrap metal parts to build a spaceship. Alternatively, we can just force our way through the fragments and reach directly for the tiny circle. Once in the center, we can project and expand the tiny circle outwards so that it will serve as a mold or support for the reconstruction of the bigger circles.

Does this analogy mean that we should ignore all first-hand information and instead go directly after the most occult and fundamental knowledge? Not necessarily, but if we do not give priority to address the core of the problem first, then most information will remain peripheral and meaningless. Information needs context in order to make sense, and a context by definition carries a hierarchy of concepts; therefore, if we can grasp the root of the hierarchy, then all information inserted in the context will fall into perspective. Therefore, the quantity of information that we hold is not the most important variable, because it may amount to a whole lot of superficial knowledge that does not lead to any useful conclusion (i.e., philosophical truths) about life, the universe and reality. Quality of knowledge is more important than quantity. To acquire knowledge based only on quantity is to have many pieces that do not fit together. Someone may not have all the pieces, but at least they already have the most important (valuable) ones.

We cannot be certain about the quality of what we know if there is not an absolute concept at the center of our knowledge. Therefore, we need a point of reference; we need one or more concepts that are absolute and thus will act as the final standard for our reasoning. We cannot achieve unified knowledge without absolutes. Absolutes simply are: there is no real reason for their existence. We do not question the authority of an absolute; we just accept it. Questioning an absolute signals denial (non-acceptance) of our part, although we are not forbidden from trying to understand how exactly an absolute is what it is: absolute. The theme of absolute concepts is going to be very important in this book. We will eventually define some of them, but they are mostly open to the reader's personal interpretation.

1.5 Principles

We discussed how a final theory may be something possible for us to achieve. In this section we will merely exercise one way of achieving it. There are many ways to do it, perhaps one for every individual. However, only one theory may rise in the end, because a final theory must have no contestants if it deserves to be called final. For this reason, in no way should we settle down to the complacent belief that "all truth is relative" and give up our attempt at designing a final theory. In fact, it is essential that a final theory be developed with the dream (utopia) in mind that everyone can understand and agree with the same set of core principles inserted in an unified model of Creation. The Truth should be made accessible and comprehensive to everyone.

The first step consists of us addressing the logical part of the problem. The mother of all problems is the existential problem: Why do we exist? Why is there something instead of nothing? Well, the most rational conclusion that we can reach is that we cannot disprove the existence of something beyond our perception. Even if our own existence does not mean anything to us, there must exist something greater, a higher power, and yet we are not aware of it. In the case of nihilism, for example, even those who glorify nonexistence are still giving credit to something that lies beyond their perception, which is one of existence by the way. Nihilism is arguing then, paradoxically, that nonexistence is the higher concept of existence lying beyond our perception. Anyway, the idea is that, irrespective of one's beliefs, faith in some kind of higher power is always present.

No complex logic is necessary for us to reach the conclusion that everything that exists or will ever exist is part of a great whole. It does not matter, because everything that can be imagined, or not imagined, is part of this Whole. There is only the Whole. Even if there was something outside of or detached from everything that we know, we could still rise our perspective to assimilate that object and thus restore the sense of wholeness. Therefore, we can accept as inalienable truth that, for an infinite succession of greater perspectives, the Whole is continuously reaffirmed as a recursive totality, an overall existence that engulfs / encompasses everything. To this overall existence we also give the name of Creation (All That Is). Everything is part of the whole of Creation.

Figure 1.2 - The Whole defined recursively

Although Creation is all-inclusive, we still cannot say for sure that Creation is everything. At the same time that Creation already includes everything, It is also a much greater concept, going beyond all categories of definition. An absolute concept such as Creation is always more and beyond. So far we have already seen examples of absolute concepts: the Whole, Reality, etc. What the Whole and other absolute concepts have in common is that there is never an objective limit for what they really are, and thus no amount of explanation can convey what it means for them to be absolute. That is why even the act of giving Creation a name is ridiculous: whatever Creation really is, is beyond the name Creation. In reality, we are talking about a certain Absolute that transcends all denominations.

The Tao [any absolute] that can be named, expressed or defined is not the eternal Tao [the Absolute]. Even the finest name is insufficient to define It. (Tao Te Ching) 1

No one is really sure about how to define the Absolute properly, but we know due to an overwhelming intuitive force that the Absolute is infinite, perfect and eternal. Organized religions tap into this latent knowledge present in everyone and try to spin it along a certain line of interpretations. What religion does not realize is that any ideas about the unlimited will still be unbelievably limited. Generally, what is left for a person after all belief systems have been demistified is acceptance of the transcendental nature of the Absolute. Surprisingly enough, it is through this act of acceptance that better interpretation of the Absolute may come. Most often, people cannot understand the Absolute simply because they are trapped in their current understanding (i.e., belief system). Thus the only way for them to receive new information is by opening their minds to the possibility that they are failing to understand something or maybe everything.

The natural urge to understand the Absolute is present in everyone, but it is initially dealt with in a very primitive way. On the following paragraphs we will see examples of how primitive conceptions of the Absolute arise and then turn out as dead ends. The idea is that the majority of people expects to find their point of reference in the form of a principle that lies above all the others, and so they falsely believe that they can forget about everything else in favor of that principle. They never try to determine a fixed set of principles, because they desire just one that can act as a magic bullet. Thus they go from one principle to another, one "answer" to another, one philosophy to another, one extreme to another. They find a principle that they consider fascinating until they forget about it only to stumble upon another. They end learning the hard way: all their once favorite principles failed to maintain their status as such, because it would be a great shame to the Absolute if It had to be restricted to a single interpretation.

As they look further for the Truth, people become fascinated with certain philosophies up to the point that they forget or ignore anything discordant with their views. But philosophy is not the least bit concerned with finding answers that can put an end to the search for truth: an attitude consistent with reality, because in practice there is a continuous supply of new questions arising that force people to adopt new paradigms. Human beings are naive by nature, and so it is easy for them to consider every new paradigm as definitive. It is a process that repeats itself for a long time until the person starts wondering if the final truth is of a complex nature beyond a single answer. This is a major breakthrough, because suddenly the person becomes much aware of the necessity of getting to know as many points of view as possible without favoring one too much over the others.

However, a new kind of conclusion tends to arise when the person reaches an intellectual dead end after many failed attempts at trying to comprehend the Absolute. They are usually very relativistic and extremist conclusions based on the theory that the universe is infinitely complex and that there is as many universal principles as people can come up with. The problem with such conclusions is that they are the product of a fascination with infinity. It is not far-fetched to think that there is an infinite number of ways to view the universe, one for each individual, but to take this at face value defeats our purpose of trying to find principles that are true (absolute) regardless of what anyone thinks. We would never become acquainted with an infinite number of principles, and thus we would never fully move from theory to practice.

There is nothing wrong with the concept of infinity. The problem begins when people choose to worship infinity as a fixed ideal, a limit. Infinity cannot be taken as a limit because it is already defined as being greater than any limit. Once you believe that you have reached infinity, you become disappointed, because infinity by definition cannot be reached. Infinity only gives the illusion that it can be sought as an ideal, because in reality there is nothing to be sought. Consequently, to be infatuated with infinity alone is dangerous and can put someone inside a path with no real destination in sight. For instance, if someone worships infinity as a symbol of power and grandiosity and thus seeks these ideals obsessively, they will be temporarily unable to achieve fulfillment (happiness) due to their extremist and unbalanced behavior based on infinite accumulation.

Figure 1.3 - Infinity

The Greeks saw the idea of infinity as being absurd and chaotic. Indeed, infinity is often employed as a supplementary word for human uncertainty and/or ignorance about certain quantities in the universe. There is, for example, an exact amount of particles in the universe just as there must be a certain amount of distance, a certain shape and size, and a certain amount of mass for everything. There are finite values associated to everything, even to abstract concepts. There is enough evidence for us to believe in a finite model of the universe; otherwise, we are left with irrational ideas based on the prerogative of infinity, ideas that in reality provide us with no answers at all.

As people continue with their search for the Truth, they eventually come to the next clue: the Absolute seems to have no specific form, color, name, sound, etc., and so this could be the reason why all attempts to define It are in vain. It seems that the Absolute is always far beyond anything that can be said about It; but hey, perhaps it is our own fixation with trying to define It that prevents us from understanding It -- perhaps there is nothing to be defined! With this in mind, people will usually jump to the conclusion that the Absolute is completely void of definition, and then they start to believe that the Absolute is tantamount to nothingness. This is still not the final answer, but it is true enough to enlighten people in a direction that explains why the Absolute seems to have no single rational definition: that which does not exist is also that which is undefined and incomprehensible.

Zero, a placeholder (symbol) for nothingness, is different from other numbers to the extent that it cannot be canceled as when we subtract a number from itself, because zero is already its own additive inverse: 0 = 0. Also, zero is always present before and after operands and signals in an equation, as well as before and after decimal places in a number (e.g., 001.000 = 01.0 = 1). All of this makes of zero an omnipresent abstract concept in mathematics, a concept that accurately reflects the absoluteness of the Absolute.

Zero could very well be the answer that we are looking for if it was not for a major flaw: by pointing a finger to zero and isolating it as a concept, we are still creating a duality composed of zero and its absence: non-zero. For instance, if we name an unknown object as "greel," then we automatically create an opposite to greel made of whatever is not greel to the extent that it is outside / beyond greel. Therefore, the presence of non-zero makes of zero an unworthy symbol for the Absolute; after all, there can be no opposite for something that is supposed to be all-inclusive: the Whole joined with Its negation still constitutes a Whole.

Nonetheless, if our chosen principle really was nothingness / zero, then in reality we would not have a principle at all. Unlike in the real world where there is no such a thing as a perfect nothingness (e.g., perfect vacuum in space), the word nothing in the strict sense should really mean absolute nonexistence. Thus an ideology based on nothingness should also acknowledge that no universal principle can exist. That is, in one hand proponents of nihilism are following a principle, while in the other they believe that no such principle can exist. In such a contradictory approach lies the proof of how zero is unusable as a concept that can be sustained ideologically, and thus we come to know another dead end resulting from people's fascination with extremes.

Common sense naively defines nothing as the absence of thing. Absence, however, is still a state, while nothingness is not supposed to be a state, nor a state that is not a state, nor a state that is not a state that is not a state, and so on ad infinitum. The fact that the word nothing exists is proof that we cannot address a "no-thing" if we do not treat it as "some-thing." In other words, there is no way to talk about nothing without us falling in contradiction, and to be in contradiction with oneself is the mark of an incomplete understanding of Creation. This leads us to conclude that thinking or talking about nothing is completely irrelevant and a distraction from more important (useful) issues.

Apart from being conceptual numbers, infinity and zero are also abstract concepts that ultimately equate to each other, because when exclusively sought as ideals they both lead nowhere. In many ways, going nowhere is the same as never leaving the place. People will be deceiving themselves by walking in circles exactly how a dog chases its own tail; they will always be looking for something, but never being able to find it. To seek infinity is a task that never comes to fruition, and to seek zero is an absurd, because zero is simply not "there" to be approached or avoided: once you believe that you have reached absolute zero, you become disappointed, because the "nothing" you have found is still something. The only difference between infinity and zero is that followers of infinity are not even aware that they are walking in circles, and that they are going after zero instead, because infinity is a masked zero.

Figure 1.4 - Twisted zero

It is obvious why infinity and zero have failed to give us satisfactory answers about the Absolute: they are irrational concepts, and that which cannot be understood rationally cannot be properly defined. Therefore, we still cannot say anything about the Absolute except that It is not represented only by zero, infinity or any other singular and extreme notion for that matter. As we hinted before, people enjoy jumping from principle to principle while ignoring the possibility that a finite number of universal principles, including zero and infinity, could be complementing each other to embody the Absolute. In other words, a finite number of principles could be the balance between a null and an infinite number. Indeed, this is the best possible guess that we can have about the Absolute: It is infinite, but It also presents Itself finitely. Therefore, to design a final theory we must find the infinite in the finite -- we must explore the finite aspect of the Absolute.

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
distorted clear
repetitive innovative

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.

  13. Acceptation, Perpetuation, Salvation, Immortalization, Preservation, Propagation, Continuation, Transformation, Regeneration, Purification, Renovation

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.

All I know is that I know nothing. ———— Socrates

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.

Figure 2.# - Zeno's paradox of motion and distance

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.

14 -> 1 + 4 -> an ideal (IC #1) structure (IC #4)                               
27 -> 2 + 7 -> a limited (IC #2) vibration (IC #7)                              
31 -> 3 + 1 -> a manifested (IC #3) singularity (#1)                            
465 -> 4 + 6 + 5 -> a variating (IC #6) potential (IC #5) object (IC #4)        
564 -> 5 + 6 + 4 -> an equilibrated (IC #6) material (IC #4) energy (IC #5)     
Schematics 2.#

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)

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.

3. Creation at work

3.1 The Cycle of Life

In Chapter 2 we saw how the Thirteen Intentions of Creation can be interpreted as distinct steps in a sequence; however, a purely sequential approach hides the fact that they are actually discretizations of a continuous process. Seeing the Intentions as individual entities is convenient for an initial study, but we eventually realize that it is not possible to completely separate the meanings of one Intention from those of the next.1

Figure 3.1 - Intentions intersecting

But what kind of process do the Intentions define? We ought to find an answer if we try to define what a process is according to the Intentions themselves. In first place, Intention #2 (linearization) is the one that better depicts what a process is, because all processes entail a linear abstraction (sequence) of events. Second, a process is understood insofar as we can see into its development, because then we can analyze it from beginning to end, and we are able to see it coming full-circle before our eyes. This leads us to the following:

process (IC #2) as a whole (IC #10) -> 2 + 10 = 12 -> IC #12
Schematics 3.1

Can we imagine a process described by the Intentions ordered in sequence? Yes, and while we are at it let us name this process as Process. As noted before, a process that can be seen in its entirety is necessarily a finite (IC #12) process. Thus we can assume that the Process must begin and end with some Intention of Creation, and since we know that Intention #1 represents beginning and Intention #12 represents end, then the Process can only be contained in the interval from Intention #1 to #12. In short, the Process is actually a 12-Intention process. Intention #13 is the only Intention that escapes and transcends this Process.

Every process produces a result once it ends, an output, and the 12-Intention process is no exception: we already know that it ends with Intention #12. But what does that mean? What is the output? Well, by numerological arithmetic we have the following: 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3 so that the actual result of Intention #12 is Intention #3, which in turn brings the directive Circulation and the idea of a cycle to our attention. In short, the result when the 12-Intention process finishes can only be the completion of a cycle, which is equivalent to the idea of a circle. Another way of coming to this conclusion is shown below.

IC #12 -> unified (IC #1) linearization (IC #2) -> a line that is unified -> circle ; cycle
Schematics 3.2

The Cycle of Life is the name given to the cyclical process formed by the first twelve Intentions of Creation. It is far from being an ordinary cycle; instead, it is the blueprint, the fundamental standard cycle of Creation that determines the pattern behind all cycles. Many people think that only biological life (i.e., living systems) follows natural cycles, but we cannot forget that there is energetic activity (IC #3) in all things in the universe regardless of their size or origin. By the very nature of reality, any kind of energetic activity is describing pulse waves, which are nothing more than cycles. That is, from a micro or macro perspective, everything in the universe operates according to cycles.

Figure 3.2 - Pulses

As a process, the Cycle of Life is actually non-linear because of its cyclical nature. But of course that any cyclical process is still subject to a linear interpretation by the very definition of process. In other words, the Cycle of Life is both linear and non-linear as a process: we can picture it sideways and see the progress from beginning to end, or we can picture it from the front and see a juxtaposition of spirals forming an outermost circle as shown in Figure 3.3. The outermost circle alone can represent the entire process and/or the result of the process. This is interesting, because by Intention #3 the idea of a circle is linked to the directive Manifestation. But manifestation of what? Of something, anything. The product of the Cycle of Life is the manifest (physical) universe itself, which is frequently called as "reality." That is why the Cycle of Life is so important for us to understand the nature of reality.

Cycle of Life -> 12-Intention process -> 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3 -> reality (IC #3)
Schematics 3.3

Figure 3.3 - Front view of a pulse

We can expect to find the pattern of the Cycle of Life in whatever direction we look, especially when we are analyzing some aspect that is more fundamental with respect to how Creation is implemented through the Thirteen Intentions. More specifically, any aspect in Creation can be characterized by the first twelve Intentions organized sequentially to describe a finite process that results in a cycle. This is what is behind the nature of reality.

Figure 3.4

We can correlate Figure 3.4 with the idea of a fractal. The word fractal comes from the Latin fractus meaning "fracture." Above all, a fractal exhibits self-similarity, which is the tendency for an overall geometric pattern to be repeated across all levels of magnification. Therefore, no matter how much we zoom in a fractal, we still get the same shape / pattern approximately. That is how the Cycle of Life alone can provide us with all the knowledge necessary for a comprehension of the organization of the universe. If you understand that there are only 12 types of building blocks, you understand it all.

Relationship with Intention #13

By Intention #3 we have the directives Manifestation and Circulation, the latter of which gives birth to the idea of a cycle. Consider also the notion of duration (length) from Intention #2. Now, considering that Intention #2 evolves into #3 by the sequence of Intentions, we can say that when a duration of any sort becomes manifest, it can only describe a cycle; it can only function as a cycle. This means that all things including abstract concepts have a lifespan (duration) in the form of a cycle.

Consequently, every phenomenon in Nature is cyclical. Planetary, galactic, cosmic and even universal cycles are like ordinary biological (life) cycles yet operating at a greater scale of energy. There are macroscopic as well as microscopic cycles. There are always cycles within cycles. Cycles of different magnitudes work together to form a giant cosmic wheel. Each cycle possesses its own internal "clock" that ultimately synchronizes with cycles above and below it. At the end of a cycle there is always a new cycle beginning at a higher order / level of energy and consciousness -- it never ends. Going from one cycle to the next is like an ascension for consciousness.

Intention #13 is the one responsible for the transition between cycles. The resulting process is a cyclical evolution forming a spiral that never comes to an end. A spiral is formed as one cycle connects to another in a continuous fashion. It is not a coincidence that Intention #13 is the last Intention of Creation, because it plays the most important role as an ending that guarantees a continuous supply of new beginnings. Intention #13 is eternity itself. In fact, if we consider the word end as meaning purpose, we can say that the end of all Creation is continued evolution and nothing more.

With the eternal power of Intention #13, the Cycle of Life can transform from a finite and sequential process to a continuous and recursive process. The perpetuation of this process is acomplished through the recylication of every ending (IC #12) in the Cycle of Life into something new (IC #13): a new beginning. By Intention #13 we no longer have a process per se, but more of a flow, a greater process by which everything flows. The Cycle of Life being a finite process serves as a building block for an infintie process in which there is continuous rennovation of this cycle.

The only way for a finite process to last forever is through a greater process that causes it to repeat. Indeed, Intention #13 makes sure that there is continuous renovation of the Cycle of Life. However, how much different every new cycle appears to be is relative: a copy is always a new copy not mattering if it looks identical to the mold. A cycle can be excitingly new for some and incredibly boring (repetitive) for others. The bottom line is that all cycles are somewhat new (IC #13), because at least in some detail they will differ, but as instances / copies of the Cycle of Life they still follow the same receipt.

As an unit of cyclic time

So we know that the cycle of life is the fundamental pattern behind all cycles, and that it has 12 events correpsonding tot he Intentions of Creation. Of course that, for example, the life cycle of a rock is very dull: all that we can say for sure is that it has a beginning and an end, which amounts to only two events in place of where there should be twelve. The reason for this discrepancy is because the Cycle of Life is a life cycle seen from a multidimensional perspective. Even the simplest of the things can become more complex when seen from a higher-dimensional perspective. See the following example:

Figure 3.5 - Cube versus tesseract

Psychological time is a frame of perception that extends from birth to death based on how the individual experiences life. Imagine if we could take a picture of someone's life so that the entire set of experiences could be archived in a file in some kind of holographic database for the purpose of an universal record keeping.2 There would probably see a strong resemblance to the Cycle of Life in the resultant energetic patterns of oscillation in the life of the individual, even though every life cycle has an unique signature.

Therefore, the Cycle of Life is the template for a file that encases all 3D experiences in the life of a person plus one more dimensional experience considered temporal by us: the fourth dimension. for every dimension on top of another, the dimensions below are folded as an infinitesimal unit that can be lined up for spatial measurement of the new dimension. we use 2D units (eg, inches, milimeters, etc.) to measure 3d objects and we use 3D units, as our minds depend on a sucession of 3D scenarios to measure the duration of events. try it yourself, chamber of sensorial deprivation where time would go? and you will lose track of time.

The fifth dimension can be visualized as a temporal plane containing all possible timelines and probable lifetimes. We know that a plane is composed of an infinite number of lines, and so eahc line is an infinitesimal unit. if we imagine each line as being a timeline with an arbitrary length, then each timeline would be an instance of the Cycle of Life, a fourth dimensional line wrapped to a life experience. therefore, the Cycle of Life serves as an unit of measurement for the fifth dimension.

from a 3d perpective we measure the duration of events using a linear interpretation of time as an absolute variable, but in the fifth dimension we measure duration according to cyclical an interpretation of time that has a multitude of instances of the cycle of life entire timelines and lifetimes, as the hours, minustes and seconds of regular time. therefore, the cycle of life is a process that encapsulates time and space, and not the other way around.

it is worth rememebring that the cycle fo life, as part of the thirteen intentions of creation, isn't restricted to anything . it is an abstract pattern and cab be applied even to the fifh the sixth and any finite or infinite number of dimensions. it is just that inside the context of cyclical time, the cycle of life really does indeed spans only four dimensions. in the context of other an abstract qualities from even higher dimensions than the fifth, the cycle fo life would still apply but probably with much less relevance, as even the concept of life would not even apply to such dimensions.

Graphical representation

In the same manner that the invisible energies of the Thirteen Intentions can be interpreted as directives, imagining a graphical representation for the Cycle of Life is only a matter of giving form to the Thirteen Intentions. It may seem like a difficult task, but we have already been given a hint: the Cycle of Life is a cycle.

Figure 3.6 - Cycle

Cycles and waves have a lot in common, especially because wave patterns originate from cyclical processes. Ocean waves, for example, are formed due to orbital, seasonal (weather) and tectonic cycles. In wave theory, the conclusion of one period of a wave is said to be one cycle that has ended, while frequency is the number of cycles per an arbitrary unit of time.

Change (IC #13) in terms of space and time is always associated with Oscillation (IC #6), since where there is no disturbance there is no change. An important distinction in physics is that scientists model oscillations mathematically and call the results as waves instead of the actual phenomena that may or may not be explicitly observed as waves. Therefore, in most cases when we use the term wave, we are actually talking about a graphical representation known as a waveform. A waveform is generally a x-y graph of a varying quantity over time and it is used to represent energy signals.

Figure 3.7 - Waveform

When looking at a waveform, we can appreciate the two main properties of a wave: wavelength and amplitude. Amplitude is the maximum positive vertical displacement corresponding to the magnitude of oscillation, while wavelength is the distance between two sequential peaks. They are graphically defined as:

Figure 3.8 - Wave properties

The basic, pure building blocks of all waves is the sinusoidal (sine) wave. Sine waves are "well-behaved", periodic waves with definite frequency and wavelength and thus are more appropiate for consistent study of waves. the most complex wave shape is still a simple sum of sine waves of different wavelengths. This shape of waveform is often encountered in natural phenomena, while complex and chaotic (non-pure?) shapes tend to correspoind in artificial phenomena.

Figure 3.9 - Sine wave

When we look at a waveform we are always looking at a static representation, but if we try to follow the curve visually as a flow, we can even sense a momentum in certain regions. To put it in another way, there is a thrust in a horizontal or vertical direction in certain segments of the curve. Sometimes the curve wants to explode horizontally, other times vertically, and sometimes the force is even in both directions. These two tendencies can be said to correspond to more or less wavelength or amplitude.

Horizontal Tendency (DH) -> lower amplitude, higher wavelength
Vertical Tendency (DV) -> higher amplitude, lower wavelength
Schematics 3.4

If waves are models originated from cyclical processes, then we should be able to build a waveform for the Cycle of Life. We can take the first twelve Intentions and evaluate their meanings in terms of wavelength, amplitude, horizontal and vertical tendency, and then try to draw them as the peaks and valleys of a wave. We should also take into consideration that some Intentions are very extreme and translate as null amplitude and/or wavelength, or have tendencies toward infinite amplitude or wavelength.

Table 3.1 - Drawing the Thirteen Intentions as a waveform

Figure 3.# - Cycle of Life

The graph above is far from being a plot based on real data; it is more like a product of intuition than of data analysis. What we really did was determine the visual chracteristic of each step (Intention) of the "flow" of Creation while trying to represent it as a wave. We start from the assumption that a standard wave is supposed to go up and down, up and down, but here we have addiitonal possibilities to consider: horizontal or vertical tendency. Also, beginnig with Intention #9 we get into heavy abstraction. Since the transition between each Intention is supposed to be smooth, We try to linearize the abstraction, as for example: The graph "collapses" at Intention #10: Fir we went to infinity (IC #8) then to zero (IC #9), and if the graph ended at Intention #9, it would stay at zero; however, Intention #10 is a limit point case where both zero and infininty are present at once.

For other Intentions the graph would have discontinuities If we were to do complete justice to their meaning. Intention #8, for example, has the characteristic of a vertical (90 degrees) line going upward toward infinity. In the graph, however, this would introduce a vertical disconinuity. Also, Intention #8's line is slanted and not vertical because wenever we have the idea of process we must take temporal length (duration) into consideration, and this means a disllocation along the horziontal axis. The same case applies for Intention #11: it is a process happening inside a singularity, hence Intention #11 not being represented as a a singular event.

Phases

Looking at the graph of the Cycle of Life, we can see that not all Intentions have a significant extension. Some are depicted as mere dots that could very well represent instantaneous events, such as a beginning (IC #1), an atonement (IC #10) and an ending (IC #12). Only the Intentions that possess extension and duration are present as phases in the Cycle of Life. A phase is any point of the graph that demarcates one stage or portion of the cycle's duration.

Figure 3.# - Phases of the Cycle of Life

The phases correspond to those intentions that have the quality of length (IC #2) present in them. The phases correspond to those portions of the graph displaying horizontal and/or vertical tendencies, that is, processes of approximation (IC #11) that take some time. Numerollogicla math, 1 + 1 = 2 which means that tendency (IC #11) will necessarily imply in length or duration (IC #2).

A stage is bla bla bla.. We are accostumed to think of a life cycle as having just a few stages, but in the Cycle of Life we have nine. It has to do with the fact that the Cycle of Life spans four dimensions: three main events represent the cycle alone, but when we add four dimensions to three evetns three events are seen through four dimensions, 3 x 4 = 12, see below.

Energy x Time

In the graph of the Cycle of Life you might have noticed that the axes have no meaning associated to them, much less units of measurement, but this does not mean that they have nothing to do with spatio-temporal concepts. There is no problem in trying to associate a few quantities to the axes and see how it plays out. After all, the Cycle of Life is an universal pattern valid to all phenomena that can be quantified (measured).

Because the Y-axis tends to infinity at Intention #8, there is not a definite amplitude that applies to the whole waveform of the Cycle of Life. An amplitude must be a finite maximum vertical displacement. However, if we isolate certain intervals of the waveform as if they were standing alone, then the concept of amplitude can apply to these intervals individually. Still, the wave will have maximum vertical displacement at some points, namely amplitude, but these maximums will not be related to anything in particular. Indeed, amplitude is just another name for a literal quantity, i.e., quantity that is not of something physical.

Figure 3.# - Literal quantity

To quantify is to measure, and so a literal quantity (amplitude) is just a measurement that is not of something in particular (e.g., length, time), but also can be of anything. This means that there is an amplitude for everything that exists, and every thing is completely characterized by its amplitude. In this respect, amplitude and the idea of pure energy are directly related with each other. People frequently talk about energy as if it was an absolute measurement not restricted to a form in particular, but this does not mean that they believe that energy exists in this state. The fact is that everybody knows that energy is an absolute variable with respect to life, and this is the reason why the term can be applied in all kinds of imaginative ways without sounding unrealistic.

For most practical uses, the terms energy and amplitude are interchangeable. Most waveforms treat amplitude as the amount of energy (power) that is being transferred by the wave. Therefore, there is no doubt that energy is an appropriate choice for the Y-axis of the Cycle of Life.

Thus for a more practical application of the Cycle of Life, we can make the vertical axis denote energy and the horizontal axis denote time, because all processes have duration. The Cycle of Life then becomes very clear if applied to ordinary living systems that are born, experience highs and lows of energy, and die.

Figure 3.# - Energy x Time

Until now we are discussing only two variables that are explicit. the other two (DH and DV) are implicit and have been already discussed. that makes it four variables. remember that we said before that tmainly because the Cycle of Life has four dimensions. each spatial dimension is obviously associated to an intention, as we will see in 3.2 - Dimensions, but in the graph each dimensions is turned into a variable, which means that each dimension has a certain quality that cna be measured.

# Variable Quality Description
1 E Energy The first dimension as a variable is energy.
2 DH Matter The second dimension as a variable is matter.
3 DV Intelligence The third dimension as a variable is intelligence.
4 T Time The fourth dimension as a variable is time.
Table 3.2

Quadrants

Let us imagine that the space sorrounding the curve as being the spatial representation of Zero, a void, that serves as abstratc propagation medium for the intentional flow of creation. According to Intention #2, the principle of duality can be found in every conceptualization, and thus even in zero. Indeed, the idea of absolute nothingness, or zero, zero can be seen as real or imaginary. the first case when it is absolute, as the real lack of something, and the other as a symbol representing the imagination of nothingness that can only be approximated in reality.

zero (real) -> zero in the strict sense         
zero (imaginary) -> as close to zero as possible
Schematics 3.#

Curiosly, In mathematics we find that zero also has two distinct representations: one grouped with the positive numbers and gripued with the negatives known as negative zero. with this in mind, the graph can also be considered as having a positive and negative quadrant. one for real zero, and other for imaginary zero. the positive quadrant deals with everything real, and the negative with everything imaginary.

but we can reach the same conclusion through the ICs themselves. both quadrants span the vertical axis (energy) which corresponds to ic 5. 5 can be formed by two numbers either by 1+ 4 or 2 + 3. 3 is on the upper quadrant, while 4 on the lower, therefore:

(+) quadrant -> real (IC #3) ; individual / subjective (IC #1)     
(-) quadrant -> imaginary (IC #?? ???) ; material / objective (IC #4)   
Schematics 3.#

Figure 3.# - Real and imaginary in the Cycle of Life

knowing that the upper quadrant representes real, and the lower, helps wiht the interpretation of the graph of nthe Cycle of Life. it also helps with udnerstanding why some intentions are below and others on top, or crossing like ic #8. the intentions that have imaginary aspects are #4 and #7 and lower half (beginning) of #8. and the real are #3, #5, #6, the upper half of #8 and #9. other intentions are free from this categorization.

3.2 Dimensions

There is more than one possible interpretation for what a dimension is. In the strict geometric sense, a dimension is one of the three standard spatial dimensions: width, height and depth. But due to a fundamental connection between dimension and frequency range, we can extrapolate the former's meaning to refer to parallel universes, planes of existence and even levels of consciousness. In the case of dimensions of consciousness, for example, the idea is that individual perception becomes attuned to a certain frequency range interpreted by the physical senses as a N-dimensional world.

Regardless of which context we use for this term, whenever we are talking about dimensions we are implying the measurement of some property or quality. There is no such thing as a dimension that does not embody some kind of measurement, since the very word dimension comes from the Latin "measured out." Dimensionality is the ability to measure, that is, the ability to establish limits. Modern physics presupposes that extra dimensions exist at incredibly small scales. Indeed, extra dimensions of space beyond the fourth are condensed to extremely tiny scales, almost reaching a state of singularity, but they still have some magnitude -- it just lies beyond what current human perception and scientific instruments can detect.

A phase in the Cycle of Life is the same thing as a dimension, because the phases correspond to those Intentions that admit a linear interpretation to them, hence dimensionality (length). As you can observe below, associating one dimension to each phase gives a total of nine dimensions. Still, there is nothing impeding us from considering the entire extension formed by all the phases as an additional dimension: the 10th.

Figure 3.# - Dimensions in the Cycle of Life

A dimension is not necessarily physical and so it does not need to have a perceptible size. Therefore, from a physical perspective some dimensions are very much conceptual. You can see in the Cycle of Life that the first and ninth phases do not contain an appreciable amount of energy, and in fact there should be zero energy in those phases. But we must also take into consideration that the word phase by definition implies in some duration / length of time, which in turn must always be in relation to some form of energy variation of a system. Consequently there must be a speck of energy in those null dimensions of the Cycle of Life, but this energy is of a finer quality; it is an extremely thin and subtle form of energy that lies in-between the smallest units of matter. For this reason we can conceive the 10th dimension as being an ether: a theoretical substance that permeates everything and thus embodies all dimensions of space.

There are two types of dimension: spatial and temporal. As depicted in Figure 3.#, the first nine dimensions possess spatial characteristics because in the graph they occupy their own individual space along the horizontal axis. The 10th dimension, however, is non-spatial because it does not occupy a space of its own and instead borrows it from the first nine dimensions. Therefore, being non-spatial yet measurable, the 10th dimension is quite a paradoxical case like the correspondent Intention #10, since this dimension does show up as having length in the graph after all. It is only that this length is one of duration (time) and not of extension (space), which means that the 10th dimension is actually a temporal dimension. Indeed, as we will discuss later, a number of spatial dimensions can be taken as one big continuum with the result being a temporal dimension.

Notice that we are associating dimensions to Intentions and not the other way around because the Intentions of Creation are always at the root of any association. But we can also do the opposite and once the primary association has been made, we can proceed and associate Intentions to dimensions in order to complement our understanding of the numerological meaning of each dimension. That is, the dimensions have an indirect (numeric) association with their corresponding Intentions. for examplem although Intention #9 in the Cycle of Life has a direct correspondence with the eighth dimension, we can establish an indirect but nonetheless true connection between Intention #9, the last Intention that has something to do with spatiality, and the ninth dimension, the last spatial dimension.

Furthermore, there are two additional "levels" beyond the 10th dimension. Because they are inserted in a context of null / infinite space-time, they are not dimensions per se, but similar to how we treated the 10th dimension we can still find dimensionality in their lack of dimensionality: the 11th level is adimensional because it is completely void of space and time; the 12th level is transdimensional because it transcends all dimensionality. But in spite of these abnormal characteristics, we can still refer to them purely as dimensions of consciousness, or alternatively we may see them as spiritual dimensions.

2nd #3 #2 spatial
3rd #4 #3 spatial

Table 3.3

Space

A dimension by itself is nothing more than a way to measure physical change. When we have a group of them with each perpendicular (orthogonal) to each other, the result is the property known as space. More specifically, a minimum of three dimensions is required to give birth to the idea of space with respect to physical reality. It is only natural then that the general notion of space is formed in the frame of existing physical (3D) entities. That is, it makes no sense to ascribe independent existence / reality to space without the bodies that it "contains."

Figure 3.# - 3D coordinate system

The term space does not need a definition because it is already an innate idea. Space is both a psychological idea as well as a fundamental property of physics. As the latter, space has inspired many into attempting to provide a definition for it. Many have struggled to come to terms with the "problem of space" before, but it was with the introduction of the theory of relativity in physics that space begun to be conceived as an essential part of the perception process. Space is created in perception. A conception of space that is not defined as relative to our perception of bodies makes no sense whatsoever. And why of bodies? Because there could be no such thing as perception if we did not perceive other bodies.

The theory of relativity in its original version is credited to physicist Albert Einstein. This theory is believed to have revolutionized the concept of space and time in physics. It shows that in unusual / extreme cases different observers can very well disagree on the simplest facts regarding a physical system under analysis. Each observer has its own frame of reference that establish the basis for what he perceives as reality. Two observers can disagree on how fast an object is moving and/or how distant it is from them or from another object. Therefore, if space is empty for one observer, it may not be empty for another observer. Also, two observers can have different measures of time about the same event -- the theory of relativity comes to explain why both calculations could be correct.

The classical view of space is that of an ultimate reality where physical phenomena take place. Simple and effective, this view has its roots in Newton's deterministic physics which included / carried the notion of absolute space, that is, a space whose existence is independent of physical events. Although Newton's view acknowledged that motion and rest are relative concepts, it still carried this need to define space as an universal frame of reference beyond all observers and their respective frames; in other words, space in its own individual nature is not relative to anything and thus holds authority over deciding when there is motion and/or acceleration happening at all: that is, an object is moving only when it is moving with respect to absolute space.

The concept of space as something existing objectively and independent of things belongs to pre-scientific thought, but not so the idea of an infinite number of spaces [note: one for every hypothetical observer] in motion relative to each other. The latter idea is logically unavoidable, but is far from having played a considerable role even in scientific thought. (Albert Einstein) 1

The problem with the absolutist view of space, as we already know, has to do with how irrelevant it is to imagine space outside of our being / perception when there is nothing of intrinsic value making of it a real entity. Well, that is because space is just another phenomenon being interpreted in our minds, reason why it will depend on our level of consciousness to accept it as a solid / real phenomenon or not. When speaking of the nature of reality, we cannot really separate physical from mental phenomena. All phenomena -- including physical space -- take place not only in the world but also in a mental space that is our own mind and consciousness. The outer wold is a reflection of the inner mental world, yet it is full of strong impressions that can literally take over space in our minds and become as real as, or even more real, than our imaginations.

However, it is not helpful to simply conclude that all physical phenomena are illusion. It is not only the mind that offers resistance against being reprogrammed to stop believing that something familiar is real / substantial; the world itself also offers great resistance against the slightest possibility that its illusion could be disrupted by the average person. So you must fight on two arenas at the same time: even when you have eliminated belief in outer space, chances are that you will still not be able to walk through walls. In practice this translates to the old adage that belief is not the same as reality. Fair enough, but at least belief is the first step that makes us reach out for real-life conditions that will allow the dream to come true. If one firmly believes that he can walk through walls, he has already done one third of the homework. Next step is acquiring knowledge of how to do it, and then finally training oneself to do it. Nothing is impossible when we have belief, knowledge and action reinforcing each other.

Objectively speaking, there is no such thing as space; there is only the perception of spatial characteristics, otherwise known as spatiality (IC #4). While space is an abstract idea, spatiality is simply visual depth, three-dimensional perspective: try to imagine a 3D world where time is stripped off and "frozen." Space is a perception, spatiality is an observation. When you look at the description for Intention #5, you can see that it aggregates both time and perception as key concepts, but not space. This is not to worry about because we still have perception = time and perception = space at the level of this Intention, since time is higher-dimensional space. So this is what space really is when we cut out the noise of over-analysis. Still, we should take a closer look at the notion of perception to see what it entails.

The very process of being alive, and the perception thereof, is what makes time and space a reality. Therefore, it is always good to mold our understanding around the idea that time and space are not separate from each other and that both relate to our perception. It is worth mentioning that by perception we mean the entire perceptual experience, not just the sensory part of it. Perception comes first: it is actively constructing the world for us, while sensation is passive and thus lies at the other (receiving) end of perception, which is open to receive stimuli from the world. Alternatively, we can go further and study time and space under the light of consciousness, which is the most important element / link missing in scientific studies. Truth is that consciousness (IC #12) is the only true authority when it comes to deciding what takes place in the physical world. Notice that Intention #12 is the highest one after Intention #13. With that said, consider the following according to the Thirteen Intentions:

consciousness (IC #12) -> 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3 -> reality (IC #3)
Schematics 3.#

Perception (IC #5) can be defined as the mental apprehension of a certain number of things, be them imaginary or existing. We can generally observe that our perception is always limited to a number of familiar phenomena. The only hope for change lies with the natural evolution of consciousness, which is when our perception of the world and ourselves can change at once. Moreover, the perception process can be reduced to a sequence of elements (perceptions) occurring along a time axis. There are strong and weak perceptions, also objective and subjective ones. To exemplify, consider a perception process that involves objective spatial (physical) perceptions only. In that case, as long as one carries that perception, they will be unable to understand how time and space are relative. The relativity becomes clear only after we start perceiving (i.e., visualizing, feeling) the metaphysical reality of time.

The main consequence of belief in absolute space is that it gives birth to the specific notion of empty space. In this view, space is supposed to exist "out there" even when there is absolutely no matter / energy. However, deeper analysis of the nature of reality shows us that the existence of empty space is not so much obvious as one may think. A particular example showing the absurdity of this notion arises from the problem of the boundary: In this case, a boundary is the middle between two opposite extremes that does not constitute a third extreme, but instead unifies the former into a paradox. Unfortunately, because ordinary perception is trapped in monocularity, it has much difficulty acknowledging the existence of boundaries.

Monocular perception occurs when the individual sees only one thing at a time but never both at once unseparated. He is always looking for a single exclusive thing to fit the lens of his monocle. As a result, he cannot distinguish between total absence and multiple unseparated presence, and so he fails to recognize when there is a paradoxical situation in which one thing does not automatically exclude the other. Understanding how monocular perception works is the key to understand how belief in absolute space, more specifically known as empty space, is meaningless.

Figure 3.# - Empty space

In the example illustrated above, a multiocular perception should be able to recognize that presence of thing and absence of thing are simultaneously occurring at the boundary. From this we can cogitate that space is as much as a thing as the things contained in it, and so it makes sense to say that thing = thing at the boundary. That free and occupied space are the same thing is indeed the case when we add the time dimension to a purely 3D (spatial) perception, since it will reveal that both material objects and "holes" are nothing more than the features of a 4D continuum. In this sense, absence of thing in 3D space still constitutes presence in four dimensions, that is, it still constitutes a 4D "object," namely an event considering the 4th dimension as time. So, notice how there is no basis to the claim that objects are "in" space when space itself is another object, not a physical one obviously, but one of perception.

Figure 3.# - Spatial dimensions

Figure 3.# - One cup or two faces?

We can also take the reductionist route and argue that an array of atoms constitute the definitive barrier between empty space and object. This sounds like a comforting answer, but the actual nature of reality according to the Intentions of Creation is based on the interconnection (IC #12) between an infinite (IC #8) number of elements everywhere (IC #10). Everything is connected. This means that a reductionist approach can be performed endlessly and still never be able to find an absolute line of separation between elements; instead, two elements always have some kind of connection accomplished through even smaller elements. The truth is that all ideas exist within a determined threshold, and size is no exception: things can only be as small as the idea of size remains applicable, because anything beyond starts fading into abstraction (IC #9) and finally into a paradox where everything coexists inseparably.

Figure 3.# - As above, so below

By 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3 we know that reality (IC #3) results from interconnectedness (IC #12). But how can we corroborate this with real examples? Well, it is not easy to demonstrate how continuity and interconnectedness have their place in a macroscopic world where things definitely appear to be disconnected. Because of this, some people prefer to jump to the other extreme and discard physical reality as an "illusion." Well, for most people reality will always be sufficiently concrete, like a persistent illusion, yet experiments in modern physics have shown that reality can also be probabilistic and nondeterministic when our perception crosses a certain threshold. So, determinism and nondeterminism are not mutually exclusive, but the latter is certainly truer to the nature of reality.

Quantum physics is the new science that came to explain the previous anomalous behavior of subatomic particles. It also introduced a new view of the microscopic world that made the classical deterministic (Newtonian) approach obsolete / inappropriate for a study at that level. Now that physicists know about quantum non-locality, the classical notion of space barely holds at atomic and sub-atomic levels. Instead of the common view of solid particles bumping into each other, detecting and analyzing elementary particles at the quantum scale requires the use of statistics and wave theory. In quantum mechanics, waves exist only in an abstract space, which by definition is non-local, and so they prove nothing about the existence of a physical reality at the microscale.

Although the wave model in physics is initially abstract, wave functions can be used to describe any physical system. What quantum mechanics did was extending the wave model to describe the state of a particle or a collection of particles. The wave function is then interpreted as a distribution / set of probabilities. The distribution can be worked out accurately, but not the actual location of the particle. Instead, the position of the particle is described by the probability associated with a collection of y-values of the wave function. For example, if a particular y-value defines a sharp peak, it means that we have a good chance of locating the particle at the region of space associated to the range of x-values near the peak.

Figure 3.# - Wave probabilities

These interesting concepts introduced by quantum physics signify that particles and atoms hardly behave as corpuscles; instead, they are spread out as clouds or propensities corresponding to the probabilities of where they might be found. There are no well-defined boundaries marking where one particle begins and another ends, nor there is certainty about the momentum and position of a particle according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.2 The more precise one measurement is, the more diffuse the other becomes. Yet far more consequential is that at the quantum level even the existence of space is only a possibility. Then, according to the reductionist hypothesis, there should be nothing of substance supporting the existence of macroscopic space either. So, again we are led to believe that there is much less reality to space itself than there is to the perception process of it.

All this indeterminism is not to confuse us; instead, it is evidence that a better understanding of physical reality comes when we see space as just another structure pertaining to this ocean / continuum of energy that is the Universe. This great unified field of energy does not possess any characteristic in particular, but it will assume precisely those structures that we want to observe so that we can make sense of the immaterial chaos. Energy itself is by nature non-local, but with great effort we can localize it and ascribe to the result discrete characteristics of the types of particles, atoms, molecules, "strings," etc. -- whatever makes you happy. If we do not assume some structure as existing, then nothing can be predicted or controlled, and all appearances become misleading. When uncertainty reigns absolute, at most we can make only approximations (IC #11).

Time

For any interval of spatial dimensions that begins with the first dimension, the dimension that comes right after the last in the interval is the one that goes through and enfolds all the previous dimensions, with the result being a continuum. This is equivalent to how each Intention of Creation includes and extends the ones before it.

Figure #.# - Nested dimensions

Continuum simply means that there is continuity instead of discontinuity, or that there is continuity behind apparent discontinuity. But a more interesting implication in the presence of a continuum is that you can never really say that a part is not a manifestation of the whole. It only takes a few changes in perception for someone to see that what once appeared as an isolated part is actually connected to another part, and then another and another in a never-ending assemblage. In fact, one can classify as many parts as desired, but ultimately there is no end to the succession of aspects in Creation that can be categorized as parts.

Any interval of spatial dimensions is a continuum. By its own definition, a continuum does not admit the presence of separation; instead, it always presents itself as a whole. There are only different ways for us to see a continuum in its entirety, ways that bring to our attention different aspects of the same thing. Therefore, an observer is necessarily seeing a single object (continuum) wherever he looks. The idea of parts only arises with the idea of multiplicity, which is in fact an illusion: an observer that sees multiple parts / objects is actually looking at a single crystalline object from different angles that bring to his attention different facets of that same object.

Figure #.# - Facets

In reality, a continuum is experienced by an observer as a world full of objects that keep appearing everywhere he looks. Every observed object is merely an aspect of the continuum as well as the continuum already manifested in full. In other words, everything that is observed is a valid representation of the continuum in its entirety, and there is not an object or part that can be considered the ultimate manifestation of the continuum. This is a valid analogy because it is based on the holographic principle that the whole is in every part. At least conceptually, the physical universe is a hologram, an example being the striking similarities between the atomic model and the galactic model.

Furthermore, the act of seeing an object necessarily implies in the presence of a surrounding space, a higher dimension that includes both object and observer. It is a matter of logic: Delineation (IC #2) leads to the automatic creation of two sides: one current and one beyond. That is, at the very instant that we determine an interval of dimensions, we automatically create a higher dimension beyond that interval. Such logic may give us the impression that the number of dimensions is infinite, but as we saw in this section's introduction, there are two more transcendental levels beyond the 10 standard dimensions. These levels transform the possibility of an infinite number of dimensions into an infinite fractal recursion applied to the same base number of dimensions, just as the Cycle of Life is the same basic process renewed for all eternity thanks to Intention #13.

For example, with respect to 3D space, 2D objects (images) and the 2D spaces between them are nothing more than features of a 3D continuum, which in our analogy is a 3D sphere floating inside a 4D space. In the same manner, 3D objects and the 3D spaces between them are nothing more than the features of a 4D continuum, which is a 4D sphere floating inside a 5D space. As you can see, this analogy can be applied to any pair of consecutive spatial dimensions, and that is with the notions of object and space still holding as true, but perhaps changed into more abstract concepts.

A second example: An observer inside three-dimensional space sees several images (i.e., 2D objects) forming what he may deem as material (3D) objects; however the images only seem as 3D objects because the observer acquired a sense of depth in his perception as a collateral effect of being partially immersed in the higher dimension. This analogy can be applied to even higher dimensions as well, with the notion of space and depth still holding as true. The dimension that includes the observer always exert some effect in his perception that gives a sense of depth to wathever he is looking at.

Figure #.# - Water reflection

A higher dimension has a particular space or zone of its own (e.g., the ninth dimension is the interval [8.0,9.0]), but at the same time this interval has an equivalence with the interval composed by all the lower dimensions. Therefore, whenever we are talking about the nth dimension, for example, we will not only be reffering to that dimension's particular zone, but also to the interval [0.0,n-1] which is equivalent to [n-1,n]. The equivalence is with respect to energy and vibration in a way that the higher dimension alone makes up for the entire combined vibrational level of the lower dimensions. We will see more about vibration in 3.5 - Densities.

Figure 3.# - Equivalence between dimensions

Relatively speaking, a higher dimension is always experienced as a temporal dimension (time) by creatures living inside the corresponding spatial continuum. This dimension directly above the creatures plays the role of time as long as it stays removed from their perception: a priori, time is a non-observable dimension. For example, by the equivalence between dimensions shown in Figure 3.#, the fourth dimension would be the embodiment of all dimensions directly perceived by the 3D creatures as well as an extra dimension that controls their lives. In other words, the fourth dimension is everywhere around the creatures as well as nowhere to be found. Now, for creatures standing somewhere inside the interval [2.0,3.0], they would have a partial 3D experience because they are not fully outside the third dimension in order to have a full 3D experience.

The consequence of being stuck inside a spatial dimension is that time seems like an omnipresent force. The resident creatures have no choice other than to take time as an unidirectional force that controls everything, and as an absolute variable that controls the system they are in. But consciousness is what ultimately determines reality, not time. All that it takes for a being to cross over from one dimension to the next is a shift in perception, and that is exactly what follows after someone experiences a great expansion of consciousness. This process is known as a dimensional shift.

In a dimensional shift, time and space exchange places. What was once perceived as space-time, or just space, becomes time-space, or hyperspace, and walking a distance in the new time-space environment will be like time-traveling in the previous space-time environment. With that said, time and space are like mirror images of one another, and as two sides of the same coin, they are not really separate from each other. However, from the inside of a continuum, space and time are perceived as separate entities because, as we have already seen, there is always a higher dimension that a being's awareness cannot reach and go beyond. If the being could only rise his consciousness to an extra-dimensional level, he would see time and space as undifferentiated.

Most often, A paranormal experience is needed for a person to begin to understand how time and space are opposite aspects of the same phenomenon, and also to demistify the godlike status of time. But it is still possible to formulate about this possibility: Einstein, for example, postulated about the relativity of space and time, but what he really did was rising his intellect to a level where he was able to visualize the three-dimensional continuum. This means that intellectualty-wise he was inside the fourth dimension, at least intelectually. Nonetheless he could not explain the nature of time, as this would require his intellect to be at the same level or above the fourth dimension. By beign physically present inside the fourth dimension, the inexorable nature of time would begin to break, and one would be able to manipulate it.

Motion

Motion, as we all know, is always in relation to a frame of reference: an object inside a train will obviously appear to be at rest for a passenger inside the train, but not for a fixed observer at the station. In other words, the motion of a body is only as valid as it can be validated by an observer watching the body change position according to his unique perspective. There is not an absolute frame of reference where a determined (measured) motion is always valid for all observers. What is not obvious for most people is that the same relativity applies to time, because time is really only a function of the perceived motion (change) of things inside the visual range of an observer.

motion and acceleration requires energy or force. energization and acceleration are essentially the same in physical terms, and Both are directives of Intention #5. the more energized the observer is, or the more energized the system that acts as his referential is, the closer to lightspeed he will be, and all the relative movement of things around him will seem increasingly slower. realized that the idea of movement, as well as the idea of time, were totally relative to the observer, which is also the same case for space.

2 In quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that we can never know accurately both the position and momentum of a particle at some point in time. The more we know about one measurement, the more we disturb the other, making it fuzzy. Obviously, the measurements of position and velocity are interdependent, and so in reality there is only one property being dealt with. With this in mind, the Heisenberg principle is simply a formalization of the fact that it is difficult for us to localize a particle. Even when we know for sure where a particle is for a single instant, it is useless because we do not know where the particle will be in the next instant, so we need to sacrifice accuracy of position in order to know something about the velocity as well. In any case, the physicist must work with approximations, also known as uncertainties. ^

3.3 Universal constants

In Chapter 1 we defined Creation as an "overall existence". Well, notice that in the same manner that Creation with capital C is not the same as creation (i.e., the action of creating), Existence with capital E is not the same as existence (i.e., one form of reality among many others). For this reason, it is imperative that we redefine these concepts as follows:

creation -> the action of creating -> IC #3                                       
existence -> a form (IC #4) of reality (IC #3) -> 3 x 4 = 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3 -> IC #3
                                                                                  
Existence / Creation ->                                                           
  all (IC #10) realities (IC #3) -> 10 + 3 = 13 -> IC #13                         
  overall / absolute (IC #1) existence (IC #3) -> 1 + 3 -> 13 -> IC #13           
Schematics 3.#

Whether we call It Existence or Creation, we are always talking about just one absolute. What is not immediately obvious is that the concept of existence as an absolute yields an interesting implication: it makes of it a paradox. In Section 1.5 we saw how the idea of wholeness can be recursively defined on top of its opposite (negation). In other words, an absolute concept is paradoxical by nature because it incorporates and includes even its own "shadow." Therefore, as contradictory as it may seem, both that which exists and that which does not exist is a functional part of Existence. That is why Existence is better understood and defined by its paradoxical (IC #10) nature.

Existence is essentially paradoxical in nature, but as it can be and often is perceived linearly, so is it possible to not be enlightened about it. 1

Existence being a transcendental concept is beyond any rational definition. Thus it may not be possible for us to believe that Existence is a true / valid phenomenon if we cannot even define It. Still we may look harder and try to define Existence rationally, but for that we will need to take nonexistence into consideration. It is simply not possible to define (IC #2) something without invoking its opposite, that is, another thing that can provide a contrast for reference. Yet the problem regarding our model of absolutes is that nonexistence cannot be considered a valid opposite to Existence when the latter is an absolute (uppercase) concept that by definition should already nest all lesser (lowercase) concepts under its wings. To clarify, there is no opposite to Existence except Existence Itself.

Existence is directly linked with and has its basis in consciousness. When that which was previously unknown to our consciousness suddenly becomes known, it is the same as if that thing had been magically brought into existence within our universe. Something which we are not conscious of, simply does not exist to us. Therefore, according to this logic if we ever come to experience nonexistence, it will actually feel like a valid mode of existence to us; it will feel like something. Nothing is still something. Otherwise, if nonexistence does not allow for any kind of awareness, then by definition it cannot exist, because no one could be conscious of it in order to prove its existence. In sum, either nonexistence is just another mode of existence or it does not exist; either way, that leaves only Existence as a valid (absolute) concept.

It is worth mentioning that one of the limitations of rational (linear) thinking is that it sees paradoxes as problems that must be resolved somehow. But sometimes a paradox is the answer, not the problem. Paradoxes in Nature appear to be contradictions, but in truth they express a non-dual truth: the coexistence of opposites. A paradox expresses a higher order of oneness: when we contemplate a paradox we begin to learn how there is unity in multiplicity at the same time that the contrary is also true. So basically Creation is just one singularity assuming different aspects. Holistic thinking, for example, accepts paradoxes as they are because it knows that the true nature of reality is indivisible and thus cannot be partitioned without loss of meaning. Rational thinking, in contrast, has this compulsive need to separate / classify (IC #2) things in order to justify and explain their nature. As a result, rationalism will often fail miserably in understanding the essence of things, the paradox of Existence.

Fortunately, there is a way for us to conceptualize / visualize Existence by using the notion of a singularity. The idea of a manifested (IC #3) singularity (IC #1) is a very good representation for Existence. Problem is that science cannot prove the existence of singularities because they are a phenomenon when / where all physical laws and equations "break down." In physics, for example, a singularity is defined as a point in space-time at which gravitational forces are extreme and physical quantities tend to infinity. As a result, space-time becomes infinitely distorted / warped. In astronomy, a singularity is expected to be that which lies at the core of a black hole.

Figure #.# - Singularity

Zero and infinity are the two fundamental extremes that delimit all rational thought. A singularity on the other hand is that which promotes the identity between fundamental extremes, namely 0 = ∞, because a singularity is nothing and also everything. Therefore, instead of the monocular (dual) perception that there can be only zero or infinity at any one time, we can choose to see both at once unseparated forming a whole (paradox - IC #10), which proves our point that the singularity of Creation is the same as a paradox after all; although, in this case, it is a paradox that is "alive" / manifest. Going even further, we can give this paradox a formal definition in the form of a conceptual (universal - IC #12) equation:

0 + infinity = 1
Schematics 3.# - Universal equation

leaving alone the factt that this equation incldues two concpetual numbers,zero andinfinity, and conceptual is quivlaent to universal according to ic #13, why is it Why is it an Universal equation? Well, it could be called Existential equation as well, just a sUniversal, or Reality requastion, since the nature of realityis also fundamentlaly paradoxical. when we say universal with capital U we jst mena its valid toall imaginabl realities not mattering what universes they belong to. We have alrady seen how Universe is the sameas Multiverse. Justike there can be many realities in an universe, there can bemany unvierses in an multiverse.

Anyway, the Universal equation has little value except as a philosophical truth / consideration that everything is one and one is everything, as well as that nothing and everything are one. In order to make it more useful, we must transform it into a real mathematical equation so that it accurately describes ordinary reality and not just an abstract universal reality. That is, we need to find a way to work this equation mathematically until we are able to see how the truth contained in it also reflects in the fleeting aspects that compose our reality. The first step to transform this equation into a real mathematical one lies in replacing the imaginary ideals of zero and infinity, which by definition are never achievable, with approximations denoted by the limit notation of calculus. In this case, zero will become a fixed limit and infinity an unbounded limit.

Consider that a + b = 1 is the prototype of a real-world incarnation of the Universal equation. Also consider that a→0 and b→∞, where symbol reads as "tends to." One thing that variables a and b have in common is that they both converge to a limit, in this case zero and infinity respectively. Now, whether we are talking about a convergence with an approach that is infinite or infinitesimal, in both cases there is an underlying process that goes on forever, hence infinitely. We can therefore conclude that there is a variable x that tends to infinity not mattering the direction of convergence.

    and     .

To keep matters as simple (IC #1) as possible, let us derive nothing more than a single-variational equation from the previous prototype of two variables. In this case, we should express a and b in function of x: a = ± x-1 and b = x. OK, now we are left with only one variable to work with, and as a result we get two possible equations:

x-1 + x = 1

and

-x-1 + x = 1.

Equation 3.2 has no solutions among the positive and negative numbers, yet it is possible to find a complex solution using imaginary numbers. Imaginary numbers are born from the symbolic manipulation of "impossible" magnitudes, which differ from real numbers to the extent that they are metaphysical, that is, they are not restricted to the physical notion of linear extension (i.e., length) that defines real numbers. In short, imaginary numbers are essentially meaningless, but that does not stop them from having physical applications in a variety of sciences. Anyway, we shall focus only on solving Equation 3.3 because we seek the meaning that the Universal equation holds with respect to physical reality, the practical world, and not with respect to an imaginary realm populated with imaginary numbers. Therefore, we are better off elaborating upon the real solutions of Eq. 3.3 than upon the complex (non-real) solutions of Eq. 3.2, which at least for now are useless to our purpose.

Proceeding, if we multiply both sides of Equation 3.3 by x, we obtain the quadratic equation x2 - x - 1 = 0. To solve this equation we must use the quadratic formula;2 hence,

x = (1 ± √5) ⁄ 2 ⇒ .

As displayed above, there are two possible solutions for Equation 3.3. Curiously, but not coincidentally, the first value of x is the value of Phi, a well-known mathematical constant whose name is borrowed from the Greek letter Φ. Also known as the golden number, Phi is the first one of three universal constants directly related with the Thirteen Intentions of Creation. We will take a look at how this relationship takes place, but for now we shall focus on Phi and its amazing properties.

Phi

Welcome to the wonderful world of Phi. This little constant has amazed mathematicians and philosophers throughout the ages mainly because of its unique properties. Some have called it a mystical number, while others have called it magical, but apart from mysticism, it is a fact that many natural phenomena exhibit some relation to Phi. There are Phi geometries in DNA, in galaxies, in organic structures, in musical sounds, in arts and even in systems linked to the dynamics of human consciousness (e.g., financial markets). In fact, the degree that Phi occurs in Nature seems to be only limited to the degree of creativity that a person can have when studying the geometries present in the aforementioned scenarios.

Schematics 3.# - Phi up to 1040 decimal places

Figure #.# - Phi letters

The fact that we were able to derive Phi from the universal equation is not a mere coincidence: When we transforfmed the universal equation from a conceptual form to a variational form, and thus an algebraic equation, Phi and its conjugate were the values that solved the equation and reaffirmed / maintained the original meaningunity of opposites. Therefore, if Phi solves the universal equation that is supposed applies to all aspects of reality even when they are opposites to each other, it must acts as an universal constant behind the fabric of reality.

The ratio derived from Phi is known as the golden mean (a.k.a. golden ratio, divine proportion), and it can be expressed as the ratios 1:φ or 1:φ-1. Tthe golden mean offers the perfect balance (IC #6) between excess and deficiency in the universe. This means that if we want to do something stand out in relation to another, with the golden mean we can do this in a way so that the opposites complement each other perfectly and so they maintain a bond or an unity that is aesthetically beautiful. In the end, it is the whole that will stand out, and the opposites will be equal in the sense that they are undifferentiated from the whole picture yet maintain their individuality.

Figure #.# - Golden section

Most sources say that the golden mean is present in Nature, but it is more appropriate to say that Nature is based on the golden mean. Examples could be given to fill several books, but it is more important that we understand how this is possible. An even more counterintuitive implication born from the fact that Phi is an universal constant is to say that artificial structures are also based on golden mean. This is also true, but only meaningful and obvious from a multidimensional perspective.

Artificial structures are those created by intelligent beings for complex and unnatural purposes. Thereforem, the objects will reflect their complex purposes and not natural patterns. As we add more dimensions to our analysis, eventually all complexity fades back into the natural patterns of creation. We saw an example of this in section when we the cycle of life was shown to apply even to the life of a rock, yet from a fourth dimensional perspective, except we are talking about the inverse here: complexity becomes simplicity in the fourth dimension. the reason for this is because secion crossing from one idmension to another implies a shift (IC #9), meaning that everything is inverted.

4. Practical considerations

4.1 Introduction

In this chapter we will learn ways that the knowledge imparted by the Thirteen Intentions of Creation can be applied in practice. It is nonetheless critical that you understand that the Thirteen Intentions are nothing more than a set of tools at your disposal. The Thirteen Intentions should be to you as a number of ways to express and realize your Will (IC #13). Notice how your Will is at the same level as all the Intentions taken as one: Intention #13. Therefore, your Will and the Thirteen Intentions taken as one are the same thing: your Will is composed of 13 Intentions. The key is to live by the law of your Will, which is the same as the Will of the Creator: Love. In this chapter we will present a practical definition for Love that will also serve as a definition for what everyone really wants deep inside.

The first impulse displayed by most people is anxiety associated to the fact that they want to follow and obey the Thirteen Intentions as soon as possible. They want to put themselves under what the Thirteen Intentions represent. The problem is that when they blindly follow the Thirteen Intentions, they are in truth following their own Will disguised as a belief system. It is needless to say that this approach is just another attempt by them to escape self-responsibility. As noted in Chapter 2, all beliefs are self-deception. First and most importantly is that you get to know and understand what the Thirteen Intentions are, and then you can proceed to apply them in your life. Belief in the Thirteen Intentions is very far from being the same as understanding them.

However, even the idea that the Thirteen Intentions can somehow be applied in practice is questionable. The Thirteen Intentions are the programming behind Reality and so everything / everyone already follows them in one way or another. It is irrelevant that we try to apply reality on top of reality because we already do it all the time! You can only really choose to become aware of the underlying plan / programming of Creation or not, and if you do become aware, then your existence and evolution will be much more hassle-free. Again, it all falls down to achieving peace of mind: eEverybody wants to be at peace with themselves; everybody wants to be happy. With greater awareness of the nature of reality, you are able to recognize patterns better, and it is from the recognition of patterns that peace of mind can come.

Anyway, the Thirteen Intentions can be used to manipulate reality at the conscious level to the extent that they allow you to concentrate all of your energy only on a few (i.e., thirteen) things that matter. By concentrating on an Intention you are already concentrating on what is of most significance to the reality you are in. However, you cannot expect the Intentions to make decisions in your place. You cannot expect the Intentions to do all the work for you while you remain dormant with your arms crossed. Do you want to be a programmer or a program? The challenge is to become a programmer and thus stop being programmed by Reality / Creation. As long as your free will does not dictate the rules by which you live, then you are still being controlled by outside forces. Your free will should be above the programmatic nature of reality. Your free will should be the true nature of your reality.

The most practical result that everyone is really trying to obtain is relief from practical results. Consequently, much more important than going after immediate satisfaction is that first we try to raise our level of consciousness, because that is what will ultimately determine whether we can have peace of mind or not. Nothing short of infinite consciousness is sufficient for a perfect application of the Truth. Your only compromise at all times should be with Infinity, because anything less is a contradiction, a fraud. No amount of action we undertake is sufficient when we lack in consciousness, because everything that we do is a fuck-up that could be made a million times better. In short, raising your consciousness is key.

The search for the Truth is a matter of personal development; it is an internal (spiritual - IC #9) journey as we strive to increase our energy levels and expand our consciousness. Energy and consciousness are names for the same absolute universal variable whose only function is to grow in value perpetually. This variable describes the only kind of power that can only increase and never decrease: spiritual power. However, many people still believe that life has hidden shortcuts that can provide them with more power than what they can actually handle. And so people keep stumbling in circles as they look for nonexistent shortcuts in life. The hard truth is that there are no shortcuts, and so the only way to proceed is by going forward all the time. The individual must learn the art of escaping forward -- to always advance and never retreat. When it comes to walking the spiritual path, there is no escape from any obstacle except when we go straight up to it and bang head against it until it breaks.

"The Truth lies within" -- truer words have never been spoken. This means that a practical application of the universal and fundamental knowledge presented in this book will only depend on how much you can realize the truth that the Thirteen Intentions are not "out there," but within yourself. After all, we are talking about intentions of Creation, and only living beings can have intent. That is why knowledge of the Thirteen Intentions can make you more proficient in "bending" yourself as in the spoon metaphor of the movie Matrix, The (1999): The full dialogue between two characters of the movie, Neo and the Spoon Child, is shown below.

[Neo tries to bend a spoon using only his mind.]

Spoon Child: Do not try to bend the spoon, that is impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon Child: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

Spoon Child: Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Bending yourself means changing (IC #13) yourself on a deep and personal level. Such task is nonetheless something akin to a miracle because it requires a consciousness change willed. Waiting for circumstances outside of your control to bring changes to your life is the biggest self-deception. You have to stop waiting for random abstract forces of Nature to magically implement changes for the better in your life. All that you will gain with such a passive and indirect approach is the illusion of improvement. Stop wanting it and be it. You have to develop a mindset that increases your sense of self-responsibility up to infinity and leaves no other option in your mind besides the immediate need for you to be that change that you want to see in yourself. Change on a personal level must be sought at all times, never "later." Achieving this state of mind is very difficult and requires you to discover your true identity as a spiritual and godlike entity that possess complete control over its destiny.

Therefore, in order to find the Truth, you got to really want to know who you are on a spiritual level. It does not matter how many beliefs you subscribe to, because none of it matters when you do not know how it all relates to you. It all comes down to you. All knowledge is ultimately self-knowledge, and knowledge of the Thirteen Intentions, being the most powerful there is, can help you achieve a great level of self-knowledge. Still, you have to regard this knowledge as a tool, nothing more. A tool is by definition an inanimate object that cannot do any work by itself. The key difference with respect to the Thirteen Intentions is that they actually represent a tool that is alive (IC #5), and thus they can almost do all the work in your place, but you still have to be there to put the final nail to impede the construction from falling apart. In other words, even after you have grasped the lot of all knowledge, it may still fall through without you. With great knowledge comes great responsibility.

By getting to know yourself better you are expanding your sphere of consciousness, and at each rest stop during this process you can see by looking at your old self that you have successfully climbed another ledge. (Note: self-knowledge.). The effect is progressive as the individual evolves in consciousness and in his ability to create from intent. (Note: Thirteen Intentions.) The more expanded the awareness, the more powerful the intent, the more successful and automatic the creation and the more realized the consciousness. (Note: It is not a surprise that by 12 + 3 -> consciousness results in realizairton, automation and creation, etc.) therefore, the degree of power you have matters when you use the tool (intent) that which will invebitably be one of the any one Thirteen Intentions, or all of them at once if your will is aligned with Intention #13.

Purpose of Existence

According to Intention #1, there is always a purpose behind something; there is always a meaning, a cause. There is, for example, a purpose for life and a purpose for evolution, and they differ from one another, though the latter includes and overrides the former. We may not be aware of the final purpose / meaning of Existence (Life), but there is a purpose in the sense that there is a straight and objective answer that applies to everyone regardless of individual beliefs, and this answer, if understood in the right context, is more enlightening than relativistic answers such as "the meaning is the meaning you give it." Notice how this absolute (nonrelative) statement cannot be objectively true, as it is implying that relativity is an absolute. Because relativity (chaos - IC #10) is not an absolute in Creation, and specially because there is always a higher order (IC #7) behind / beyond the perceived chaos, then anyone who parades relativistic beliefs is simply ignorant of the final truth that we learn from the Absolute (IC #13).

In Section 2.1 we learned that absolute concepts such as Existence are self-causing, which means that they are their own purpose. The purpose of the Absolute is the Absolute, period. That is already the highest purpose that anyone can have in mind. But the problem is that we need to further elaborate on the nature of this higher purpose until we can achieve a proper level of technical knowledge that will allow us to apply it in our lives. For now, consider that this purpose is spiritual and coincides with what Intention #13 is all about: Love. We will better characterize and define this purpose later in this chapter.

Most people do not have a higher purpose in life; but of course, not everyone is looking for one. Sometimes their purpose is to just experience the basic / standard things that life has to offer and not necessarily do something "great" with it. To justify this lack of a well-defined purpose held by them at the conscious level, most people will naturally subscribe to the enjoy-life-have-fun philosophy, which is after all in tune with the highest purpose of Existence. (See the figure below.) The problem is that a philosophy that considers life (IC #5) itself as the purpose of life is still not the highest purpose that we can have in mind. The highest purpose is spiritual and coincides with Intention #13, and so it is bigger / greater than life (IC #5); it is a purpose that remains valid for all eternity, and so, in theory, it should span many lives.

Figure 4.# - Purpose of Existence

Life is neither sacred nor insignificant; it just is. From a spiritual perspective, life is just an enriching experience that is not necessarily the first or the last. Belief in life after death is not even a requirement for us to be able to see everything as part of a bigger context, a plan of Creation, as described by the Thirteen Intentions. Still, most people will only look for answers inside the context of life, because their focus is restricted to life, and so they are unable to find higher purpose that could provide them with everlasting fulfillment. Nonetheless, if people are aware of a significant purpose in their lives, they at least have a chance to extrapolate such purpose in order to achieve great things. On the other hand, when people are not aware of any significant purpose, they simply limit themselves to experience life without any sort of extrapolation; therefore, it can be argued that to experience life on a basic level is their purpose after all.

But the biggest problem is not being ignorant of the purpose of life, but assuming that a certain course in life must be followed in detriment of all others. This in itself is an assumption that controls people's minds and limits their amount of energy and motivation. For example, when an individual is part of a society, there is often stress and anxiety associated to the fact that he must honor a lifelong societal contract, and yet he is not aware of having signed anything. Therefore, the individual keeps pushing himself to have the motivation to "do something" and "become someone" for the sake of society, but the truth is that he will not have enough motivation to excel as long as he feels obligated as a slave does. The moral of this story is that one should not honor agreements in which they did not consciously participate. Many people are brainwashed by society in this aspect, although in the end it is the individual himself who allows his mind to be controlled.

A greater motivation that comes from the inside (spirit) can only arise when there is freedom, and freedom is above all a state of mind. It is very hard for an individual to achieve responsible freedom of self-determination, and that is why so many people prefer to remain in situations where responsibilities are assigned to them by authorities. Funnily enough, it is only when the individual stops thinking that he ought to have motivation to do only certain things without questioning that he begins to have uncontrived motivation to do everything without questioning. That is, when one learns to strive for nothing too much in particular, they also acquire the energy (motivation) to strive for everything at once. For this reason, the purpose of Existence is indeed something along the lines of "to not have a purpose." It is a purpose unassuaged of purpose, a purpose that is not really meant to be taken seriously.

The spiritually enlightened nature of the purpose of Existence leads us to understand that a forceful way of living is the same as not living. There should be no limitations to life, only infinite possibilities. To have a spiritual purpose is to have a free mind that acknowledges infinite possibilities. Any purpose that brings limitations to our minds, and consequently to our lives, is not the highest purpose. Lesser purposes will flood our minds with expectancies for results. Most often, people hurl themselves after all sorts of results lying in a distant and even uncertain point in the future. For them, the simple fact that they are alive is not enough, for they must also display to others that they are seeking some sort of "closure" to their lives. The problem with this "prize race" mentality is that, once all results have been achieved, people sink right back into questioning the meaning of life. Well, they should know that it is the journey (continuation - IC #13) of life that really matters, not all the purported destinations, and so the only prize worth of attaining is the ability to live in the present -- this is what it means to live life to the fullest.

IC #13 -> 13 = 3 + 10 -> be (exist - IC #3) in the present (IC #10)
Schematics 4.#

Figure 4.# - Life maze

Finding your true purpose in life also means finding your true will and then see how it translates to the tasks of everyday life. One's true will is the same as one's true purpose in life as well as the purpose of Existence. Some tasks may temporarily align with such purpose, but after a while they become counterproductive. They may help or hinder the main purpose. But to be bonded by the spiritual purpose of Existence means that you sees life as an experience that enriches your spirit and you understand that you don't really have to do anything in order to live; you do not need to "get a life" because you already have one. Any other commitment, any other responsibility should be an extra that you are willing to take, according to your Will.

in , the purpose of Existence only expects you to go along with the free flow of your living. no purpose at all besides living. You have to be being free from desire. As such, it is the pinnacle of freedom, but also the strictest bond possible, because there is serious commitement and responsibility in being free, much more than people are willing to have. With great freedom comes great responsibility. One does not have any responsibility at all except that which one decides to have for oneself, and unadultered freedom is already the ultimate responsibility that anyone can have. The price of freedom is eternal self-vigilance against falling in limitation, and infinite self-responsibility. This will become increasingly obviosu as we central is neecssity cultiave one's analyze in later sections the n otions of power and energy. The probvlem of cultivating ond's energy more and more becomes central then..

4.2 Energetics

The universe is made of one substance: energy. Everything in the universe is energy assuming one form or another. But what is energy after all? Mainstream science defines it as the "capacity to do work," "usable power," etc. Well, all of these definitions are somewhat circular considering that by Intention #5 the concepts of power, force and work are all interchangeable with energy. The fact is that energy is something beyond definition because it corresponds directly to an universal principle, an Intention of Creation. Energy is already what provides the definition for several concepts with respect to life and the universe. Therefore, it is convenient for our fundamental analysis that we start treating energy as the absolute variable of the universe.

Vibration and consciousness are alternative names for the absolute variable of the universe. These two concepts along with energy are all intrinsically related and in fact they are the same abstract property under different names. The concept of energy is a better denomination for most practical (IC #5) purposes because it is closer to physical world concepts. Therefore, to see energy as a continuous variable serves a more practical purpose than in the case of vibration or consciousness. Energy by itself is an abstract property and as such its existence is questionable -- we cannot really prove it -- but still everything that exists is an effect produced by energy in the same way that consciousness (IC #12) is constantly giving birth to reality (IC #3): 12 -> 1 + 2 = 3.

What the absolute variable of the universe really is, is the concept of a completely pure (IC #13) form of energy which underlies all physical reality. Pure energy is an abstract entity / concept and as such it cannot be detected by scientific means, but inside the physical world this energy assumes many forms that can be detected and measured. The five qualities of energy shown in Table 4.# are nothing more than degrees of energetic purity. They are simply different states of the same substance, a divine essence, which is actually the substance of the Void (IC #13). In other words, the Void also has a nature and substance of Its own from which all matter and energy is derived. The Void is hardly "nothing" considering that It is already the source of everything. There is absolutely no energy as well as infinite energy in the Void.

IC #13 -> Void ; Source -> pure (IC #13) energy
Schematics 4.#

heat #6
sound #7
scalar #8
vacuum (zero-point) #9
Table 4.# - Qualities of energy

Let us take one of the qualities and see it in detail: vacuum energy. This quality of energy, also known as zero-point energy, is the lowest possible energy for a system, except that it is also virtually infinite energy considering that it is present at all points in space. Therefore, vacuum energy is the most abundant form of energy despite the fact that it is extremely subtle and fluid and thus cannot be easily harnessed. This makes of vacuum energy the highest quality of energy, the one that is closest to the idea of a completely pure form of energy found in the Void. In fact, vacuum energy is spiritual energy emanation directly from the Source.

To remain dependent only on a particular energy source can block you off from higher quality sources, which are more abundant and allow those who access them to be more in touch with their spirituality. the highest faculties of self, higher levels of being and consciousness, are there waiting to be discovered by those who get in touch with these finer energies of Creation. For example, One may be healthy physically but not healthy spiritually. if their focus is solely on cultivating mass instead of vibrastioanl energy. In this way, one may be neglecting one's spiritual evolution, which greatly depends on how fast vibration is rising. The funny thing about finer energies is that they are pretty much the same as no energy at all, and this means that being in touch with these energies is practically the same as becoming self-sufficient. It is not necessary to say that for a being to become its only and own source of energy is something extremely difficult, until there it has to depend on outside and intermediary sources.

In this chapter, we are interested in solving the problem of how someone can accumulate (IC #8) and control their energy. This is fundamental to anyone's evolution, because there is always a need for more energy in order to solve problems that keep arising. It is well known that a problem cannot be solved on the level on which it was created. For example, if you want to solve a problem at level x, you need to be at level x+1 or greater. You cannot perform at a high level without enough energy. Also, you always need more energy to achieve control (power) over your current level of energy. Power begets more power, and that is why there is never enough energy.

The good news is that the energy of any system already tends to increase under optimal (natural) conditions. This is by natural law, more specifically due to Intentions #8, #11 and #13. However, constant (IC #13) growth only takes place in the realm of vibration (IC #7). The reason why it is only energy as vibration that can rise to infinity is simple: Intention #8 following immediately after Intention #7 can only mean that the principle of accumulation (IC #8) applies to vibration and not to the standard concept of energy as defined by Intention #5. Intention #5 merely defines the concept of physical (IC #4) energy, which is really energy as mass, and thus it is restricted to physical boundaries. Now, vibrational energy is non-local and so it is not restricted to the boundaries of a system, although it can be temporarily associated to one. On the other hand, physical energy cannot be increased indefinitely without the risk that the system's limits are exceeded causing its subsequent destruction. For this reason, physical energy requires constant maintenance to remain in an optimal level, one that is neither too high nor too low.

Figure 4.# - Exponential growth of energy

absolute (IC #1) variable (IC #6) -> 1 + 6 = 7 -> IC #7 -> vibration ; frequency
Schematics 4.#

As seen in 3.5 - Densities, every system has a base level of vibration that we can call as its frequency. A system only exists to the extent that it incorporates a specific frequency: change (e.g., increase) the base frequency and we are no longer talking about the same system. However, sometimes a change in frequency is not only because we have changed the subject and/or plane of our analysis, but also because the system may have reached its death: A system is nothing more than a certain amount of aggregated / organized energy, which means that the natural tendency for energy to ever increase on a metaphysical (vibrational) level eventually exhausts the system by triggering its energy to blow out of proportion. As a result, the system suffers great instability until its subsequent death. That is the way it is, because a system can only be said to exist in a certain plane to the extent that its energy remains at a stable level (i.e., within that same plane).

Sound is the type of energy corresponding to the vibration phenomenom, and if we consider that mass (i.e., physical energy) and sound are nothing more than different states of the same substance, then physical energy can also be interpreted in terms of vibration. It thus makes sense to say that any system can suffer a process that "lowers" its vibration. Technically, however, a system variable measuring vibration can only be fixed or rising. Whether there has been an increase or decrease in physical energy, that still constitutes a fixation or increase in vibrational energy. The reason for this is because vibration (IC #7) is a higher-order phenomenom compared to oscillation (IC #6), and thus it is unaffected by the latter. Vibration already is oscillation translated as a specific frequency value. Accordingly, when analyzing the system we may notice oscillations in its energy, yet beyond the system's boundaries we discover that such disturbances are the result of an evolutionary process involving a second system that includes the first as a subsystem. Thus we may assess that the level of vibration of any system is in reality ever rising due to an indirect association with the energy of a greater (macro) system.

Let us analyze the graph of Figure 4.#: The y-axis contains the values that the absolute variable of the universe takes as energy of a purely vibrational nature rises steadily across systems even when physical energy oscillates locally (i.e., within a system). The x-axis measures the scale (wavelength) difference between cycles (waves), but it can also represent time. The diagonal line is depicting the energetic growth process associated to the absolute variable, and we can consider it as a third axis which would be the z-axis if the graph was three-dimensional. Now, what is important is that the process of the diagonal line is unrelated to time, and so, even if we consider the x-axis as representing time, that still does not mean that the diagonal line is the graph of the function y = x. We can see this in the graph by the fact that the third axis is not mapped to the x-axis, only to the y-axis. The third axis is really a vector that includes the y-axis as a vertical (scalar) component and the x-axis as a horizontal component that adds the much-needed factor of time to our linear analysis. It is only appropriate to say that vibrational energy is increasing over time when there is an increase in physical energy coinciding with an increase in vibration, because apart from that we are dealing with a process happening on an axis and dimension of its own.

Figure 4.# - Energy increasing across systems

Bonus image Figure 4.# - Frequency / vibration as the z-axis

Notice by Figure 4.# that there is an aspect of energy that never dies, it just changes form (system - IC #4). From system to system, energy achieves immortality. In physics this concept is known as the first law of thermodynamics, which states that energy can never be destroyed or created. A system can be said to be continually producing energy (work), but in reality it is borrowing energy from a higher-frequency energy source corresponding to a greater system. The Universe is the greatest system; it is both the ultimate energy source as well as the ultimate isolated macroscopic system. In systems theory, however, an universe is understood as being the environment of a system. The environment not only provides all the energy that the system needs, but it also reabsorbs the energy contained in the system after its death. That is, the system simply disintegrates back into the environment after reaching maximum level of entropy.1

Now we are going to see a more realistic depiction of the evolution of a system on a purely energetic level. A system is supposed to remain stable during its life, but eventually a need for post-systemic evolution arises: the system has to evolve beyond itself. It is a metaphysical force that triggers the system's energy to rise to such a high level relative to normal levels that the result is a state of virtually infinite energy, hence comparable to a singularity. All systems end (die) with a singularity, which means that everything that the system ever was (i.e., energy) is compressed into one instant. To illustrate, notice how the system wave collapses into a singularity according to the steps shown in Figure 4.#, which is actually a parallel description of the exponential curve seen previously in Figure 4.#: As the rate of growth (vibration) tends to infinity, the wave collapses as more energy gets compressed into the present instead of remaining evenly distributed along the axis of time. In Intention #8's panel, shown below, we can see when the graph of the exponential curve hits the ceiling and thus the energy, having reached critical mass, blows out of proportion.

Figure 4.# - Wave collapsing into a singularity

The main lesson here is that there is an universal law of evolution (IC #11) responsible for continuous energetical growth in every possible case. The Law of Evolution based on Intention #11 says that there is always progress going on, even when we cannot detect it for either it being too small, too slow, or of a completely different nature. What makes it hard to be detected is the fact that it involves movement toward a higher degree of everything but also of nothing in particular: power, order, chaos, complexity, vibration, wisdom, knowledge, consciousness, etc. Of course that in the end we are talking about energy in a purely scalar sense, that is, energy characterized by magnitude (IC #8) only. All you have to do is imagine a straight vertical (IC #8) line from zero to infinity, and you will realize that this is the true (spiritual) nature of evolution in the universe. This vertical line is a process happening in the backstage of reality; it forever infuses us with energy, but we have the option to bring it to the foreground and start living by it.

Energy management

We have seen that every system is what it is because it embodies an unique frequency in the universal scope. Then we saw how to translate the system under analysis to a sinusoidal graph of certain amplitude versus duration. Now, considering that all energy is of a dynamic (vibratory) nature, we can make use of the sine wave again to illustrate the system's pattern of evolution as a series of oscillations (vibrations). Another way to look at it is through the Yin Yang metaphor: from activity (Yang) to inactivity (Yin), and then to activity again -- the cycle begins anew. The fact is that every system is subject to energetic fluctuation (IC #6) due to less-than-optimal conditions for its development. Only in perfect environmental conditions would the system be without oscillating, and in this case its evolution would be represented by a straight line.

Figure 4.#

This is the picture of how life on the material plane works; it is up to us to deal with such "bumpy" road in the best possible way, as for example by ascribing a good sportsmanship meaning to it. It also helps not to forget about the constantly growing line according to the Law of Evolution. We discussed how this law is an ever occurring event despite the imposed energetical oscillations of Nature. Honestly, there is never any gain or loss of energy happening in Creation; there is only continuous transformation due to the unlimited and unstoppable nature of spiritual growth. The spiritual aspect of evolution is ultimately caused by the directive Propagation (IC #13): we can imagine a spear thrown with such tremendous force that it pierces through everything in its path. Therefore, it is important to understand that life in the universe is about constant development first, wave motion patterns second. The latter is only important to the extent that it provides support to our inner (spiritual) development, since outer development is always susceptible to ups and downs, success and failure.

To cope with these knock-downs common to life and still maintain a steady growth in power, one has to become an expert in matters of energy management. We will see how important right managing your energy is to make sure that your journey through life is as smooth as it can possibly be without impairing richness of experiences. Your evolution must be a sustenable process, that is, never rushed or stagnant. The higher you go, the bigger the fall, unless you take the time to grow a proper pair of wings. This leads us to recall the natural exponential curve of Figure 4.# as applied to the building up of metaphysical energy with respect to any system over an arbitrary length of time. That is the perfect example of self-sustainable growth, that is, growth that mnaturally leads to more growth. Notice however, that since we are talking about an ideal curve depicting a perfectly natural and unimpeded growth process, obviously there will be deviations from it in the real world where things are far from being ideal.

When it comes to energetics, management of energy involves more than just habits of maintenance, otherwise there is no progress because all the effort is directed to keep oneself at the same level. A maintenance mentality wants to stay the same; it focus on the periodic rise and fall of the wave in a futile attempt to stay inside a zone of comfort and avoid the next level of evolution for as long as possible. Yet the Law of Evolution is implacable: if one does not evolve upward (spiritually) by their own volition, they will by the influence of external forces. Stagnation, which relates to Intention #6's idea of static balance, is always an exception, never the rule. The sine-wave evolution pattern is incomplete and thus brings a false sense of security that cannot last for long, but people are often unwilling to let go of it before a tragedy happens. The rule for all systems is always the collapsing (IC #9) wave, which is governed by the principle of dynamic (IC #10) balance. Remember: change (IC #13) is the only constant in the Universe.

Figure 4.#

dynamic (IC #10) balance (IC #6) -> 10 + 6 = 16 -> 1 + 6 = 7 -> IC #7
Schematics 4.#

Succesful energy management means cultivation of energy; it means taking the necessary steps to go along with the path described by the collapsing (evolving) wave seen in Figure 4.#. It is like "riding" the collpasing wave, and so your evolution will describe that same pattern as you head toward your personal singularity. It is either that or being stuck to periodic wave motion, that is, a linear sucession of ups and downs without a spiritual purpose. in this case it is said that the creature is living only the horizontaL (IC #5) component of the evolution process. on the collpasing wave, even though there are still ups and downs; the momentum , the energy, or the force carried by the wave is steadily ever rising. But with the wave shown in the first panel below, the force is one of dispersion over the horizontal line (axis) as opposed to one of concentration toward the center of the graph. In this case it means that there is no effort to "level up," to make the transition from horizontal to vertical (IC #8), as observed in the exponential curve. The slope of the exponential curve is even recognizable in the 2nd and 3rd stages of the collapsing wave.

When the individual begins to taken on a more vertical route in their evolution, this means an increase in the usage of energy for self-improvement and life improvement rather than for self-destructive behaviours that take him along a path of misery and death. Cultivation of energy is the ability to use the currently available (stored) energy so that even more energy is generated afterwards as a result. But for it to happen, the individual must minimize losses in order to maximize gain / profit; he must learn to invest / spend his energy wisely so that in the long run it renders a positive return. Sometimes, while the individual is expecting the outcome of his investment, he can even limit himself to a few maintenance tasks. This is the secret of cultivation of energy that is primordial if one wishes to obtain control over their lives and steer it into unimaginable heights. There are no limits, only beliefs. Any person can cultivate their energy beyond ordinary levels; all that it takes is willpower (IC #13).

In fact, the difference between the person who strives for more and another who prefers to remain the same is one of Will. If willpower is present, they will persist, if not they will give up although other chances will come. It takes courage to persist, a desire to cross the gate of the unknown and face whatever challenges might be lying ahead. Eventually, they will give up and allow themselves to fall back on a more familiar and manageable energy level, or they will persist with spiritual ascension, which is the process of returning to the Source. Without input from the Spirit, life would be nothing more than an inertial succession of highs and lows of energy. Wave motion (i.e., fluctuation [IC #6]) belongs to the will of the universe, which is artificial, machine-like, like a piston. Fortunately, as previously noticed in Section 2.2, we can access the power of Intention #13 to break cycles of programming and go beyond the Game mechanics.

Release of energy

Every interaction is an exchange of energy between parties involved. The relationships between the creature and its environemnt is one of transfer of energy in both ways. From a systemic point of view, the creature is continually importing as well as exporting energy, and this is how it maintains itself. We have seen that every system is completely defined by an universally unique frequency. Since frequency is rate of vibration, then if the creature wishes to continue to exist as its systemic self then it must keep a constant rate; it must maintain its internal organization at the physiological level, which undoubetly affects other levels such as psychological, emotional, behavioral, etc. This is is kmwn as homeostasis. It is the intrinsic ability of an organism to stay within preterdetermined limits. All systems are regulated according to the principle of homeostasis, whcih refers to Stabilization (IC #7). Homeostasis not only has survival value, but psychological value, because it is a quest for well-being (IC #7) based / centered on physiological functions.

Therefore, to perpetuate its existence (i.e., survive) acreature will develop habits of energy maintenance. A creature must do justice to the sinusoisal graph of its life by releasing energy periodically. After every rise there is a drop in the level of energy, and you can be sure that it was caused by a release of energy that was once internally stored by the creature. And so the creature has this need to release energy to the world to sustain a relationship with its environment, one that allows both to survive. Release happens when there is phsyical or mental exertion, voluntary or involuntary. What happens is that some energy gets used (burned) as fuel and the product of this is thrown into the environment. Moving, breathing, sleeping, reproducing, and digesting food are just some examples. On the mental plane, the release of psychic energy occurs through many types of activities dealing with emotions. In fact, some route of release is always taking place; it is after all the natural outcome of a series of oscillations making up the creature's life.

1 In physics, entropy is the measure of the disorder (chaos) of any system. According to the second law of thermodynamics, the entropy of any isolated system can only increase over time. In the case of open systems, entropy can decrease locally and temporarily due to external agency, but the tendency for it to increase overall persists if we consider the entire life cycle of the system. That is, if we keep expanding our analysis over time and space, it becomes increasingly obvious that there is always a positive net change in entropy for the universe. For this reason, entropy is sometimes considered an universal principle of which the second law is a mere expression.

4.3 The frequency of Love

According to Intention #13, any individual (IC #1) existence (IC #3) is nothing more than a reflection / incarnation of the Triad, which is nothing more nor less than the three-fold nature of Existence. This means that every existent / created thing is not monadic or dyadic, but triadic in its fundamental nature, otherwise it simply cannot exist. Now, let us recall that every created thing has a certain base signature frequency, which can be any real number. The difference now is that we are talking about core frequencies of Creation that are not necessarily the same as base frequencies. There is a limited number of core creative (IC #3) energies behind everything that exists. Therefore, the fundamental frequency responsible for the existence of something must be a three-digit number. Anything greater or lower than three digits is not a true root frequency of the universe.

Said Aristotle, prince of philosophers and never-failing friend of truth: All things are three; The three-fold number is present in all things whatsoever... Nor did we ourselves discover this number, but rather natures teaches it to us. (De Vetula) 1

The frequencies we will work with in this section are actually numbers describing the meaning of natural creative forces. According to Intention #3, creative has to do with three, hence three digits. But root creative frequencies can only be formed from the digits 1 to 9, because as we saw in Section 2.3, 0 is omitted from numerological analysis. As a consequence, the frequencies 380 Hz and 308 Hz, for example, are both equivalent to 38 Hz, a two-digit frequency, which means that none of these frequencies are root creative frequencies.

The fact that only nine digits matter in our analysis is also related to how our main concern is to understand Love (IC #13) from a practical perspective: What most people like to call as the "real world" is really the physical universe. The real world is a world where only action matters, and so it is also the "practical" world. In 3.2 - Dimensions, we saw how the physical universe extends from Intention #1 to #9 in the Cycle of Life. That is, the real world consists of nine main aspects of Creation.

Figure 4.# (3.# adapted) - Real world

There are 729 (93) combinations of three digits (1-9). In other words, there are only 729 base frequencies or energies of creation / manifestation. EVen more interesting, we can call these 729 numbers as spiritual frequencies if we play a little with number 729. (See below.)Spiritual frequency is pretty muc hthe same as a certain value attributed to the concept of pure energy that we saw before. Pure energy by definition is already infintie, but still it may assume any one of these values as we will explain shrotly . frequencies represent a channel, a bridge, because they are spiritual frequencies manifesting themselves as a finite physicla reality.

9^3 = 9 x 9 x 9 -> the spirit (IC #9) empowering itself to create reality (IC #3)
9^3 = 729 -> vibration (IC #7) finite (IC #2) of the spirit (IC #9)              
9^3 = 729 <=> 297 -> a number (IC #2) of spiritual (IC #9) frequencies (IC #7)   
Schematics 4.#

Figure 4.# - 729 spiritual frequencies

It should not be a coincidence that the sum total of all numbers in the 27×27 square above can be reduced to 9: 111 + 112 + ... + 998 + 999 = 404595 -> 4 + 4 + 5 + 9 + 5 = 27 -> 2 + 7 = 9. In other words, these 729 types of energies (vibrations) emanating from the Spirit are what supports the real world; together they form a spiritual (IC #9) foundation upon which the physical universe is built. This is a notion that only gets reinforced the more we look into number 729. For example, one characteristic of 729 is that it is the largest three-digit cubic number; therefore, if we consider that cube -> 4 corners -> IC #4 -> system ; physical ; foundation, we can conclude that 729 symbolizes the physical universe, the cosmos, which by definition is the largest system ("cube") possible.

Figure 4.# - The Cosmic Cube

In Chapter 2, we saw how numbers 3, 6, and 9 hold a special function in the creation of the universe, which is why they can be considered more fundamental than the other single-digit numbers. And then we saw how, beyond 6 and 9, the most fundamental number to the nature of reality is 3. Three is the first number that comes into existence and the only number that will ever really exist. To illustrate that, think of a bidimensional plane as a void: the first 2D geometric shape, the first thing, that can come out of this void is a triangle. (Note: a geometric shape is by definition a closed figure.) Since a triangle possess three endpoints and three angles, the greater triangle in Figure 4.# symbolizes number 3 itself and also a triad formed by 3, 6 and 9. Numebr 3 is the entire triangle but also appears as one of the endpoints.

In Chapter 2, we touched on the subject of how Love is already everything and so we cannot easily figure out a consistent course of action based on It. Also, what many like to call as "infinite" or "unconditional" love is actually love in a perfect and immanifest state that at first does not serve any practical purpose in the real (manifest) world. Therefore, we need to make Love into something more well-defined, more rational, so that we can put It to good use. One thing is knowing the Truth, another is applying It efficiently. The problem is that Love is already Infinity (IC #13), and thus we cannot associate a value to It unless we commit the biggest crime ever: we have to limit the unlimited. Some will abominate such a crazy idea, because we have to downgrade what Love represents; we have to break Love apart. But, as soon as we are done with the breakage, we have the opportunity to capture the first and most fundamental fragment that better reflects the whole of what Love is/was.

Figure 4.# - Broken Love

Ideally, and according to the conditions we have set sorrouding the importance of practice, a value for Love will be one of the 729 spiritual frequencies. Only one of them is the right one. Well, our focus here is noto n iNtnetion #13 alone, but exclusively on the first nine intentions expressed as the 729 spiritual frequencies. Therefore, because The 3-9-6 triangle represent Intention #13, which in turn is Love, any permutations of the number set {3,6,9} result in frequencies that are the most fundamental to the nature of reality, but not not the most fundamental to our purpise, because each one of them is stll reflecting Love wholly and directly. but no, we don't need a faithfu lrepresnetation ofLove, we need a fractured one. We cna discard all of them , none of them serves our purpose, which is practical, and requires us to break Love. translates to break the 3-9-6 triangle, at least once, which in turn means that we must derive another set of frequencies, hopefulyl more "practical", from that triangle.

Permutations: 369, 396, 639, 693, 936, 963

396 -> manifest (IC #3) spiritual (IC #9) equilibrium (IC #6)
636 -> 6 + 3 + 6 = 9 + 6 -> inner (IC #9) learning (IC #6)   
Schematics 4.#

Because the 3-9-6 triangle is archetypal to the nature of reality, each one of its characteristics carries the notion that something can only exist as three, and that existence has its basis on the principle of duality, hence Intention #2. For example, numbers 3, 6 and 9 are set apart from each other by two (IC #2) elements when we consider their positions in the sequence {1,2,3,...,9}. (Note: the same applies to 9 and 3 as in numerology the 1-9 sequence is cyclic.2) In the same manner, the 3-9-6 triangle is formed by three lines (IC #2) connecting three points (i.e., numbers 3, 6 and 9). Now, being a representation of the Triad, the 3-9-6 triangle is the only triangle that exists, which means that any other triangle made from a triplet of numbers must be a reflection of it. Therefore, the only option we have is to arrange 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 in two sets of three numbers each, namely {1,4,7} and {2,5,8}.

Figure 4.# (4.# extended) - Deriving from the 3-9-6 triangle

We now have a total of three sets corresponding to three triangles. There are 6 permutations of each set giving a total of 18 spiritual creative frequencies. Naturally, each frequency reduces to 3, 6, or 9, and taking them apart digit by digit shows how all of them are composed of numbers set apart from each other by two elements. These are only frequencies in the entire group of 729 that exhibit this property. Anyway, we must still find out which one of the two triangles derived from the 3-9-6 triangle is the most fundamental, the most faithful reflection.

3 = 12 = 1 + 7 + 4 <- 174 | 471 -> 4 + 7 + 1 = 12 = 3
6 = 15 = 2 + 8 + 5 <- 285 | 582 -> 5 + 8 + 2 = 15 = 6
9 = 18 = 3 + 9 + 6 <- 396 | 693 -> 6 + 9 + 3 = 18 = 9
3 = 12 = 4 + 1 + 7 <- 417 | 714 -> 7 + 1 + 4 = 12 = 3
6 = 15 = 5 + 2 + 8 <- 528 | 825 -> 8 + 2 + 5 = 15 = 6
9 = 18 = 6 + 3 + 9 <- 639 | 936 -> 9 + 3 + 6 = 18 = 9
3 = 12 = 7 + 4 + 1 <- 741 | 147 -> 1 + 4 + 7 = 12 = 3
6 = 15 = 8 + 5 + 2 <- 852 | 258 -> 2 + 5 + 8 = 15 = 6
9 = 18 = 9 + 6 + 3 <- 963 | 369 -> 3 + 6 + 9 = 18 = 9
Schematics 4.#

Notice that right before any one of these frequencies are reduced to 3, 6 or 9, they are reduced to 12, 15 or 18. This is the hint we need in order to conclude that the 2-8-5 triangle is more fundamental than the 1-7-4 triangle, although it should have been obvious all along if we consider that (1) 3 x 2 = 6 -> a tri- (IC #3) angle subjected to division (IC #2) and that (2) all permutations (frequencies) of the set {2,5,8} reduce to 6. Asd you can see, the first triangle generated from 3-9-6 is the 2-8-5 in the same manner that 6 is the first number generated from 3.

{3,6,9} -> {2,5,8} -> {1,4,7}

1st fracture:

3 = 1 + 2 -> origin (IC #1) of number 2
6 = 1 + 5 -> origin (IC #1) of number 5
9 = 1 + 8 -> origin (IC #1) of number 8

2nd fracture:

2 = 1 + 1 -> origin (IC #1) of number 1
5 = 1 + 4 -> origin (IC #1) of number 4
8 = 1 + 7 -> origin (IC #1) of number 7
Schematics 4.#

We are now free to discard all frequencies of the sets {3,6,9} and {1,4,7} since they are not the most fundamental to our purpose here. Only the frequencies 258 Hz, 285 Hz, 528 Hz, 582 Hz, 825 Hz and 852Hz matter. only ONE of these six frequencies is the most fundamental to our purpose, and thus we have to find yet anpother criteria that may point us to this direction. apparently, there is no more criteria left except for the one of that of symmetry: the position of the digits in the numbers / frequencies. From now on, It is pretty much a matter of preference we are delaing with now, because all of those frequencies are somewhat equivalent, but we must proceed if want to find out what is the most important frequency.

We already know that 3 is the most fudnamental, the most central, number to Creation. It does not matter that there is not number 3 in {2,5,8}, since, Between 5 and 8, number 2 is the one that mostly approximates 3. That is, according to the directive Approximation (IC #11) we can ellect frequencies 528 and 825 as the most iumportant. Now, the same logic can be aplied further: we also know that 6 is the first number generated from 3 as long as we are not breaking 3 down. between 5 and 8, 5 is mostly approximates 6. hence hence 5 comes before 8 in terms of fundsamentality. we get 528 is, officialy, the first created frequency. because 825 is mirror of 528, as soon as you have 528 hz, you pretty much have 825 as well. because it only depends on our perpective.

528 Hz
528 <=> 852 -> 8 + 5 + 2 = 13 + 2 -> Love's (IC #13) value (IC #2) 
528 <=> 285 -> 2 + 8 + 5 = 2 + 13 -> measured (IC #2) Love (IC #13)
Schematics 4.#

Love is the primary vibration / frequency of the universe, and now we know with mathematical accuracy the value of this frequency. Who would have thought that there is a well-defined value for Love? It could not be different, as Love is not about enigmas designed to screw with our minds. Love is about clearness, openness and honesty. Love does not hide from us; we hide from It. Experiencing Love is a matter of "tuning in" to the right channel, to the right spiritual creative frequency. We can access the power of Intention #13, the power of Love, when we spiritually and consciously attune ourselves to 528 Hz. Thoughts and behavior will reflect this attunement (IC #7), and so we are able to Love others and ourselves properly. However, as we will see, there is an increasing need to make sure that we do not commit further deviations from this Love channel.

If Love is supposed to be the ultimate power, then why is that Its frequency is not infinite? Well, it is infinite in a certain sense considering that in real life there is no such thing as an exact value of measurement, only approximations (IC #11). For this reason, 528 Hz can only function as a borderline value, a limit: as we strive to achieve Loving perfection, there is a convergence toward the theoretical exact value of 528.000…. This poses a problem though, because the closer we are to 528 the greater the effort required for any additional steps that can get us even closer. Thus there is a progressive need for more fine-tuning until we have settled on exact 528 Hz. Nonetheless, satisfying results may be achieved from time to time: let us say we reach as far as 528.000001 and 527.999999, but the truth is that any degree of precision ceases to be enough sooner or later. Therefore, it may be that someone has cultivated their energy to infinity and still they have not achieved a pure state of Love. How much Love is enough? The truth is that It is never (IC #13) enough.

Figure 4.# - Approaching 528

Keep in mind that 528 Hz is Love in a fallen (broken) state; it is Love as It is/was cast as the first (IC #1) light (IC #3) of Creation. "Let there be light" really means to let Love be made into something concrete (IC #4), which fundamentally involves the creation of the polar aspects of Love that characterize the physical universe: Light and Dark. This breaking down of Love for the creation of an universe can be deduced from how number 13 reduces to 4: 13 -> 1 + 3 = 4 meaning that it is only natural that Creation (IC #13) turns into something physical (IC #4), always. In Chapter 2 we saw how the Artificial Creation is all about polarity, and consequently there is fear, which greatly reinforces the need and the search for Love. But this search is actually a rediscovery, because any separation from the Source (IC #13) is ultimately illusory: we never left the Source in the first place. Still, nothing impedes this illusion from being a strong and convincing one that requires individuals to strive continuously to rediscover true love within themselves.

528 = 132 x 4 -> (13 + 2) x 4 -> Unity (IC #13) divided (IC #2) through solidification (IC #4)
Schematics 4.#

It is interesting to notice that in classic Hebrew biblical texts we find out that the gematria of "the breaking forth of light" is 528.3 This expression is a metaphor for the first act of Creation, the dawn of Creation. The Creator propels Love, the true Light, by shooting It through the Void, the true Darkness. Naturally, the Void and Love are the same Absolute, and so to divide the Void with a ray of light is equivalent to break Love. In a sense, to break Love is to destroy It, but we already know that, after all, this is a constructive action that results in greater appreciation, experience and knowledge of Love. The Creator is Love, and thus it is only by breaking Himself apart that He can Love (know) Himself better. Such act is the ultimate sacrifice (IC #12) in the name of Love. As we will see in the next section, the Creator has to literally die in order to live through His creatures.

People are not wrong in their assumption that, at the end of the day, life is the only reality that matters. In fact, we find out that without life there is no purpose (IC #1) for Creation, because the very first act of Creation, to which we have assigned 528 Hz, is geared toward the origination (IC #1) of life (IC #5): 528 -> 5 + 2 + 8 = 15. Therefore, the beginning of the universe / reality is inextricably attached to the beginning of life. This makes sense when we consider that there can be no reality / existence if there is not a living being aware of it. Everything in Creation can only logically begin with the miracle of life and the resulting perception thereof. To say otherwise is to believe that a dead and artificial version of Creation can exist independently from the Divine Creation, which is full of life. We know by Chapter 2 that the Artificial Creation cannot exist without the Divine Creation in the same way that a shadow cannot exist apart from the object that casts it.

Figure 4.# - New beginning

The fact that life is so important to Creation reflects how the numerical archetype 528 is central to a successful application of the Thirteen Intentions. In previous chapters we had to delve into abstract theories to understand the much greater spiritual reality of Creation (i.e., "the big picture") before we could find the right key to decipher the mystery of practice (life). Now we have such key: 528. Now we have an object of study that unlocks the possibility of us finally being able to unify theory with practice to produce a theory of practice. Our theory is based on the Thirteen Intentions, hence Intention #13, and 528 Hz is the Creative frequency that incorporates and objectifies what Intention #13 represents from a real-world perspective.

Figure 4.# - 528 and the other Solfeggio numbers

There is only one (i.e., the One) who has achieved balance (IC #6) between all aspects of its being, and that is the Creator. But within Creation everything is a product of the corruption of spiritual and perfect balance. We can therefore pose the following question: how can the individual become balanced while living in an imbalanced world? Again, the key is 528: 528 -> 5 + 2 + 8 = 15 -> 1 + 5 = 6 -> balance (IC #6). 528 is the key that unlocks the power of Love in our lives. To be in possession of the knowledge imparted by 528 is to be in possession of the key that unlocks balance within Creation, and thus the individual can slowly achieve perfection in all aspects of his life as he slowly achieves a conscious experience (IC #5) of Love. In other words, the individual literally becomes the Creator within His own Creation.

Love is the balance of all. The power of Love is in itself an extreme that does not subscribe to any known extreme in particular but at the same time implies going to all extremes all the time. That is why the keyword balance taken in a Loving context is very important, because in no way does it mean that we should forsake a material reality for a strictly spiritual one. On the contrary, we must achieve balance between material and spiritual so that we can make a synthesis of both and create an even more powerful reality for ourselves. The goal is to embrace and love your life, and whatever reality it may contain, in the most powerful way. Thus we may consider 528 as a bridge between the material and spiritual realms -- a bridge made of Love.

We are now going to interpret 528 and its cyclic permutations according to the numerology of the Thirteen Intentions. Notice that "quantity (IC #2) of infinite (IC #8) energy (IC #5)" is quite a contradictory statement: how can infinity be a quantity when infinity by definition is beyond any quantity? Well, this is actually a confirmation of what we discussed previously about the need of the Unlimited (Love) to become limited. Certainly, to quantify Love, which is infinite energy, is to create a paradox, an error in the logical sense, and yet this is absolutely required for the advent / genesis of Creation.

528 -> life (IC #5) line (IC #2) to infinity (IC #8)                  
528 -> potential (IC #5) dimension (IC #2) of extrapolation (IC #8)   
528 -> product (IC #5) of polar (IC #2) extremes (IC #8)              

528 <=> 285 -> quantity (IC #2) of infinite (IC #8) energy (IC #5)    
528 <=> 285 -> linear (IC #2) cumulative (IC #8) power (IC #5)        
528 <=> 285 -> diversity (IC #2) of extreme (IC #8) forces (IC #5)    

528 <=> 852 -> great (IC #8) opportunity (IC #5) for challenge (IC #2)
528 <=> 852 -> maximum (IC #8) energy (IC #5) differentiation (IC #2) 
528 <=> 852 -> augmented (IC #8) experience (IC #5) of duality (IC #2)
Schematics 4.#

We find important clues regarding the meaning of life when we interpret 528 numerologically. For example, since 528 reflects Love, the Will of the Creator, we find out that this Will is primarily set on the act of living, but living in the greatest (IC #8) possible (IC #5) way (line - IC #2). The Creator wants to see life in its full (infinite) extension / expression. In a sense, the Creator is saying, "Hey, take this life / opportunity and push it toward infinity... Make the most of it! Live without limits!" And to make sure this notion is followed through, He has to pepper life full with challenges (IC #2) so that it becomes a fertile ground of opportunities (IC #5) for spiritual lessons that indirectly enable the Creator to know and love Himself better. The moral of this story is that life is a learning ground for the spirit, and thus it is imperative that we learn how to maximize (IC #8) our learning process. Everyone wins when the Creator learns more about Himself.

Figure 4.# - Diagonal vs. horizontal

Notice that 528 can mean a horizontal (IC #5) line (IC #2) to infinity (IC #8) and a horizonal (IC #5) line (IC #2) elevated (IC #8). Both interpretations are valid and show how 528 is a combination of horizontal and vertical to form a diagonal line that represents the elevation of the line of life to a higher plane, a spiritual plane. As we saw in Figure 4.#, the "final frontier" of the real world, hence life, has everything to do with spirituality (IC #9). However, we cannot forget that, in the case of 528, digit 5 is preceding 8, and so the right way to interpter this number is to imagine that first we have a horizontal process, gets transfomed into a a diagonal process by goign through a verticalization (spiritualization). We have already studied such concepts in 4.2 - Energetics when we ascribed a diagonal line to energetic growth according to the absolute variable of the universe, and then we learned that this process has a horizontal and vertical component. 528 is both the process in full as well as just an horizonal component.

The idea of living your life to the fullest certainly reminds us of the very popular enjoy-your-life philosophy, but may be bliding us from the respnsibility of manifesting joy through a lot of hard (extreme - IC #8) work (IC #5). (Note: 8 + 5 = 13 -> IC #13 -> Love, the ultimate joy.) To simply go about the day trying to enjoy life is a cop out because you may not being realistic about how much effort is required to do it. Happiness should not be taken for granted. To be happy, one must do sufficient work to culttivate (grow - IC #8) their power (IC #5). Most people, however, will bounce from one extreme to another; first they over-indulge in joy, then they over-indulge in suffering (obsessive-compulsion). But the final step rooted in balance (IC #6) is to be taken by the virtues codified in 528: life is not about working first & having fun later; it is about unifying work with pleasure in the same line of thinking. By managing this you will have fun while working and vice versa, and your productivity (IC #5) and your enjoymenet will rise together; never will one affect or cancel out the other.

528 -> work (IC #5) amount (IC #2) up to infinity (IC #8)  
528 -> 5 + 2 + 8 = 7 + 8 -> pleasure (IC #7) infinite (IC #8)

4.4 The final truth

final (IC #12) truth (IC #1) -> 12 + 1 = 13 -> IC #13
Schematics 4.#

The final truth is the Thirteen Intentions of Creation, which by extension means that Intention #13 alone carries the bulk of it. Therefore, everything that you need to know is already contained in the list of Appendix 1. All kinds of meaningful considerations can be derived from a simple yet deep understanding of each listed Intention. "But hey," you might say, "after all, how does the truth of the Thirteen Intentions touch me on a personal level?" If these are your exact feelings, then do not worry, because we are going to attack them in this section.

"Who am I?" is the first and most important question when it comes to finding higher (spiritual) purpose to life. If you can constantly remind yourself of your true identity then you will never have anything to lose. You win the Game when you know who you are. (See about the Game in Section 2.2). The second most important question is "What do I want?", and finally "What should I do?". The goal of this section is to answer this triplet of questions on a deep and spiritual level, because only at this level do we acquire everlasting certainty. (Note: certainty and spirituality are equivalent qualities, since both pertain to Intention #9). Spiritual truths are eternal (IC #13) truths: they do not change even after the universe has dissipated back into nothingness.

Can you answer these three questions to yourself at a level you are comfortable with? Can you be honest with yourself? Notice that any knowledge that you may have is irrelevant for as long as you are not able to answer these three questions with confidence. And no one else can answer them for you, including this book. Just a desire to reproduce this book's information in your life will not be enough if you are not convinced about the material you have read; in the latter case you need to gain comprehension and understanding beyond words that only personal experience can provide. So, it is still necessary that you go out and find your own means to convince yourself about the final truth discussed in this book, otherwise it will go down in your mind as just another "opinion." A jagged little pill of truth that will be expelled in the next bathroom session.

"Who am I?"

It is not hard to answer the first question. Who are you? What are you? Do you identify yourself with your social role, your body, your intellect, your emotions, your spirit, or with something else, something undefinable? Take a look at Intention #13 and see that it corresponds to the idea of being, either in singular or plural form. A living being, for example, is Intention #13 in flesh. Therefore, what you need to convince yourself of is that you as a conscious being and Intention #13 are the same thing. Everything in the universe revolves around the being. It makes no sense for a world to exist if there is not someone in conscious observation of it. Thus, at the center of everything there is you, the being (IC #13).

But it goes even deeper than that when we see that Intention #13 carries on its shoulder several absolute concepts including the main personified aspect of the Absolute: the Creator. Therefore, if the ideas of being and Creator both correlate to Intention #13, then there is no being that is not the Creator. The Creator is the being. This means that at the most spiritual sense / level of who you are, you are the Creator. Make no mistake about it -- this is to be taken as fact and not just as metaphorical allusion. Also, you are the Creator in full and not just a "piece" of Him. Much evidence can be deduced from the Intentions alone, particularly the Intentional fact that the Creator is the only one (IC #1) who exists (IC #3): 1 + 3 -> 13 -> Creator (IC #13), so a being that is conscious, meaning it recognizes its own individual (IC #1) existence (IC #3), must be the Creator experiencing Himself. That is, even when multiple beings are present, it is always just the same divine being looking at itself from different viewpoints.

Figure 4.# - I am the Torus

Figure 4.# (4.# extended)

In Figure 4.# above, observe the many points of light that are visible when we are standing at the torus' outer surface and looking outward. These points are the many "stars" constituting the "light show" that is the universe to us. The universe can be literally thought of as an outer space filled with many lights that catch our attention and for a while make us forget about exploring the void space within ourselves. But then, as we start looking inward instead, there is a shift in our perspective so that the points we were used to find outside are now being found (reflected) inside, but only those that can lighten up our interior and thus fill up some of its space. Most difficult is that we reach a third stage when we stop attempting to fill our inner void but rather allow our divinity to fill it in. The second stage could only go as far as illuminating portions of our inner surface leading to the divine light at the center. Therefore, eliminating all shadows of our being requires that we stop looking outward, start equating outer space with inner space to assist in the localization of our center, and then shift focus to the center until we assume its place to become the light that expands and fills our entire universe.

Essentially, what you are on a spiritual level is the god of your own dreamed up universe. You are already an infinite being with infinite power to alter / manipulate reality as you wish. You are your own god. It just happens that you may be suffering from amnesia of this fact that impairs your ability to access the full extent of your power, but at the same time you can learn virtues that do not come when whatever you think of manifests itself without delay or resistance. In a spiritual reality only, as soon as you want it, you have it. But with the presence of a physical universe, it offers a challenge on this aspect. If you cannot grasp this where you are now, just know that in higher densities of existence, where reality is more malleable and hence less bound by physical rules, the truth of who you are would be better reflected by the world around you. You would experience less disconnection (latency) between thought and manifestation.

It is indeed a 180 degree turn that you have to make to convince yourself that all the power in the universe is already yours. Everything around you seems to point to the contrary notion that you are powerless by yourself and hence dependent on a pre-established system of the universe. Well, how original can this be when you learn that almost everyone out there suffers the same plight? The most lacking trait in the world is self-confidence. People cultivate the belief that they are insignificant and unworthy compared to the "big" universe, and that is why you as an individual should go against the widespread feeling of inferiority by starting to believe in yourself more than anything else. People on the other hand will continue to believe in everything under the sun before they start believing in themselves. They are afraid of the idea that they too are powerful beyond measure. Notice that almost every person has faith in some institution (e.g., religion, society, economy, science) except in themselves; they believe in some form of higher power except for themselves.

Not every creature can be said to be the Creator. Certainly, every creature is an extension of Him, but not everyone is the Creator in His full (IC #10) presence. It is more realistic to say that this is a "privilege" of only a few, or perhaps only of one: you. However, there is nothing very special about it when you know that all of those who are the Creator are also those who already know this or at least suspect about it. The others simply do not know it and/or do not care about it. It is what it is: the Creator / Spirit is not fully present in everyone; sometimes a creature is only an extension of Him like a probing machine designed to collect and feed additional data to the Source. As in an unmanned space exploration mission, the controller does not need to lock his awareness to the machine because the same operates on automatic and does what it needs to do according to its programming.

That you are the Creator is a simple truth, yet it holds enormous philosophical implications, of which the most important is solipsism: the philosophical idea that only the self (you) exists and so the external world cannot have an independent existence. In other words, you are completely alone in your endless existence, and there is nothing you can do about it except learn to cope with it. There is no universe that is not your universe. Everything is your mind's creation, including even other persons who appear to be conscious like you. The world, not mattering how much unfamiliar and unpredictable, is a product of your imagination. It's all you.

Let us use the Intentions to check if solipsism is true: only (IC #1) the self (IC #12) -> 1 + 12 = 13 -> IC #13; also, lone (IC #1) existence (IC #3) -> 1 + 3 -> 13 -> IC #13. Regardless of what the Intentions tell us, solipsism will always remain as a hypothesis that cannot be proved or disproved by any practical means. Add to this fact that we are talking about something that can impart an enormous sense of responsibility on whoever comes to mind it. The slightest possibility that this theory might be true is terrifying to most people. After all, who the hell wants to be the sole responsible for all of Creation? It is perfectly normal that we find it much easier to believe that we are neither alone or responsible.

Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true. ———— Francis Bacon

But solipsism is not as bad as one might think. Although you are alone, it does not mean that you are supposed to feel lonely all of the time. When one is comfortable with themselves, they can be alone and never lonely. Loneliness is actually a feeling of incompleteness, which can be alleviated when you know that other entities are other aspects of you, missing pieces of you, and thus you can always recognize something of yourself in them. As you further interact with them, you are complementing your being; you are rediscovering (incorporating) traits that compose your full-being personality. Some traits may be alien to you at first, but they turn familiar after a while. Therefore, the more you get to know your universe and all the creatures in it, the more complete / whole you will feel. Exploring the universe is the same as exploring yourself.

There is a classic counter-argument that people use against the "I am God" thesis: how one can be all-powerful and still suffer with mundane limitations? Well, the problem with such reasoninig lies in that it fails to to take into account the relativity present in the cocnept of infinity, because one who is all-powerful must by definition have access to a source infintie power. The idea of the Creator having infinite power is not a clear-cut case: He does not need to have infinite power in practice, although he does possess it in theory. All that endless power that he could theoretically make use of in an instant will assume well-defined (finite) values in the real world, simply because everything that exists comes attached to certain amount of energy. So the Creator, when incarnated, still conserves infinte potnetial, but his pwoer level may vary depending on how much energy he chooses to invoke at any one time, which in turns depends on which role and perspective he is assuming to have for himself, aand msot importantly -- what rules (limitations) he is establishing for himself.

To explain why the Creator would choose to cap his power, first we have to make a distinction between the lower self and the higher self. The higher self is a direct personification of the Creator and it has always existed. The lower self is just a temporary expression of the Creator. (more on hte higer self schematics i n chapter ) Now, taking your percpetion of time as the basis of analysis an bd equating your current self withyour lower self, o it maks no sense Talking about a state in which you existed "before" your birth. allcorcened with, that you had a beginning, you exists now, and thta you will reach your end, is the only things for certain. when it comes to the your higher self,which possess eternal life, it hasn't always been your lowrer self, and will continue to be even after the latter is gone, with this in mind, indeed we can make a linear analysis that, once upon a time, you, as your h.s., were a spiritual being who allowed yourself to descend into physicality to experience a mortal existence.

Why does an infinite being decides to stop being infinite and instead takes on the mantle of limitation, namely physical existence? The answer as we already know is 825: to gather (IC #8) experiences (IC #5) that facilitate spiritual growth (learning) with the end goal being a stronger connection to Love / Source / Truth / Oneself / etc. Therefore, in this state of separation (IC #2) from its Creator identity, the entity has handicapped itself for the purpose of new / further experience. By sacrificing the higher self (i.e., oneself), one gives birth to the lower self that evolves up to the point of becoming a stronger version of the late higher self, which did not die actually but went through a process of rebirth that needed the lower self as a catalyst. Surely, the Creator should not need to evolve if He is already All That Is, but His spirit does -- The spirit is always in a quest for more, and the only way to do that is by continuous self-sacrifice.

How does one do this exactly? In truth it all comes down to the word pretend (IC #13). when you are already everything that you can possibly be, he only way to be anything else, hence "more," is by pretending that you are less. This is the reason of the semeingly conardcitory (paradoxical) nature of Existence, since Conscioussness is actually pretending (validating) that which is false! one has to actually pretend not to know bout their divine nature, the only way to "forget" theyve creates an ilussin / dram and then proceeded to trap themselves inside it. In a sense it is like creating a cage, locking oneself inside it and throwing away the key. and then pretending that none of this happened! Forgetting the truth for a while is required to force a rediscovery of It, which leads to greater appreciation of It. You have to forget your godly nature and put yourself in a situation that offers challenge, otherwise you are left with an empty, lonely and boring existence. Pretension is the only way to validate the illusion, namely your universe, and make it real, and thus make it into a a formidable challenge. The good news is that If what you are originally is Creator pretending to be you, then you can turn the tables, which is the real trick, and PRETEND to be Creator.

Almost everyone out there is looking for external salvation. You on the other hand should know that you are already your own savior. Since you are the source of all creation, then there is absolutely no other source out there with enough power to save you. You are the only one who can initiate a permanent change in your life. Any wind of change not directly initiated by you is temporary and will leave you the same or worse off as soon as the dust settles. Any help that you are apparently receiving from the Universe is only because you deserved it in the first place -- congratulations and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Maybe you have worked for it on a level that you are not aware of, a spiritual one perhaps, since you have allowed (IC #13) it to happen in your life; you have opened room in your life for it to take place. It is OK to thank the Universe, but also remember to acknowledge your own work. A little faith does not hurt, but you must also use your intellect and remember the way things work in practice: through sheer effort and nothing else. Authentic spirituality has nothing to do with faith; by the contrary, it is all about being smart enough to do the right thing according to the Thirteen Intentions.

To know that you have total responsibility for what you choose to create and experience is very important on many levels. Living this truth means taking responsibility for everything in Life and to stop blaming things / beings that you perceive to be outside of yourself. Self-responsibility is the solution to many types of problems discussed in Chapter 5, specially those dealing with one's health and well-being. The mistake is to pretend that the problem is not there, or worse, pretend it is not your creation. It is easier to blame something else apart from your own actions than it is to ask yourself honestly, "What am I doing to create this?" Do not take this wrong: you are not responsible for other people's creations, but the moment you allow their creations to affect you in some way (i.e., physically, emotionally, psychologically), that is because they have become a part of your universe / experience, and so you enter the picture as a co-creator who shares equal responsibility. Sometimes we are too weak to remain unaffected by some force, and so we end up being a part of it whether we like it or not. Deep inside, however, it is only a consequence of our own creations for the purpose of experience.

That you are Creator / God is precisely the answer you would get by the end of the most arduous brainstorming session on the nature of reality and consciousness. All other answers contain ideas that involve delegation of personal responsibility to an outside agency, which is the reason why they are most appealing to the general public. Yet the biggest blow will come only after you have used this knowledge of your true identity to answer the last two questions posed at the beginning of this section; because that is when you will realize the extent of the responsibility you have. The knowledge discussed here, by itself, will not work wonders in practice, since even though you are a god, you still have many self-imposed limitations to overcome. Also, everything and everyone is Creator anyway, directly or indirectly. Flaunting your "title" does you no good -- you must also prove it.

Many people today don't want honest answers insofar as honest means unpleasant or disturbing, They want a soft answer that turneth away anxiety. ———— Louis Kronenberger

5. Dissertations

5.# Consciousness

Consciousness generally refers to a living being's awareness of several things about itself, its own existence, and the world around it, including but not restricted to sensations, perceptions, emotions and thoughts. Psychology and other sciences of mind also consider consciousness as being the quality or state of being aware. These common-sense definitions, however, are vague (circular), because awareness and consciousness are practically the same thing: awareness is a subproduct of consciousness. Therefore, let us stay away from orthodox and circular definitions and instead try to build a more natural approach to an explanation of consciousness.

To be conscious involves a lot of things. As conscious beings ourselves, we are trapped inside the consciousness phenomenon. Our intellect and perception are subject to consciousness, and not the other way around. This means that we cannot simply expect to fully define consciousness if we are not totally "above" and beyond it to see the entire process unfolding before our "eyes." Because of this, many people feel that consciousness has no place in the objective world of science, although a lot of "unobservables" in Nature can be and have been the targets of scientific investigations before. There are no boundaries for scientific inquiry, but the nature of consciousness seems to be just as unlimited.

5.# Good & Evil

Figure 5.# - Masks of good and evil

By the analysis done in Chapter 2 on the polarities of Love, we should now be able to see that the good/evil duality is an illusion. This means that whether something can be classified as good or evil is relative to individual perception. Or is it? Well, at the same time that perception plays an important role in determining the orientation of something, Love is the absolute good after all, and fear can be considered an expression of absolute evil. With this in mind, we can say that an act is intrinsically evil if it is implemented with the sole intent of causing fear, whereas an act is intrinsically good if it is implemented with the sole intent of cultivating Love. But let us not forget that Love is the only Absolute, and as such It can be seen as a benevolent or malevolent force if one chooses to accept It or deny (fear) It, respectively. We have already discussed how Love is beyond superficial categorizations and so It can assume any role (mask) without losing Its integrity; therefore, the Absolute is both potentially good and potentially evil.

5.# Suffering

Suffering arises from feelings that are stronger than the individual's capacity to assimilate them. Suffering is intense and obscure, and with causes that are unknown or ignored (denied) by the individual. Aspects of one's existence that cannot be understood nor accepted eventually become too intense to be ignored. It is only natural that suffering arises according to the sequence of Intentions of Creation: sensations (IC #7) grow (IC #8) internally (IC #9) until they become very intense (IC #10) to produce a personal singularity, an existential paradox (IC #10).
